Mahrez’s wife, Joshua flirt in nightclub

first_imgRelatedPosts Tyson Fury to Anthony Joshua: Don’t risk fighting Usyk Aguero could be out of action until November, Guardiola says David Silva recovers from COVID-19 Manchester City star Riyad Mahrez’s wife Rita and boxer Anthony Joshua were seen “flirting” in a celeb hotspot, according to reports. It comes after Joshua’s heavyweight rival Deontay Wilder was also said to have flirted with the Manchester City winger’s wife last month. Model and singer Rita, 26, was reportedly seen with her hand on Joshua’s knee at London club Tape on Friday, according to The Sun. The publication claimed she and Algeria captain Riyad have agreed a trial split and are living 200 miles apart from each other. A source told the publication: “Rita bumped into AJ on her way out and he invited her to join him at his table in VIP. “Rita, who was with a female pal, clearly thought AJ was incredibly hot. They then spent much of the evening laughing and flirting.” World heavyweight champion Joshua reportedly didn’t realise she was the wife of City star Mahrez, and backed off after being told who she was. “He didn’t have a clue who she was. He simply thought she was a pretty girl and enjoyed their chat. “But when the club owner pointed out she was Riyad’s wife, AJ got a bit awkward, and totally backed away. “He explained he didn’t want to step on any toes or cause a scene, and that he’d be stupid to be seen doing anything in public. They left with friends at 3am, but got into separate cars.” Joshua is single after his split from dancer Nicole Osbourne in 2016. City star Riyad, 28, scored in his side’s 3-1 win at home to Leicester on Saturday. Last month he was said to be “devastated” after WBC champion Wilder was accused of “flirting” with Rita at Manchester hotspot Club Liv. A source reported that there appeared to be “a real connection” between the pair. Mahrez is a Muslim non-drinker who snubs the clubbing lifestyle popular with many of his Premier League colleagues. He married Rita – who is the mother of his two children – in a private ceremony in August 2015. A spokesman for Joshua said “He is disappointed his name is used to generate publicity in this manner”. Representatives of Riyad Mahrez and Rita Mahrez have been contacted for comment.Tags: Anthony JoshuaDeontay WilderManchester CityRitaRiyad Mahrezlast_img read more

Reifer, Barnwell star to hand USA second straight defeat

first_imgPORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, (CMC) – Chris Barnwell’s attacking half-century and Raymon Reifer’s destructive five-wicket haul spared Guyana Jaguars blushes against minnows United States here Monday night.Sent in at Queen’s Park Oval, Jaguars needed Barnwell’s 63-ball 80 to get up to 226 all out off their 50 overs, before Reifer snatched five for 35 with his left-arm seamer to complete the Jaguars turnaround, handing them a nervy 13-run victoryThe victory was Guyana’s second in three outings leaving them second in Group B while the defeat for United States was their second in two appearances.Unconvincing in their previous two matches, Jaguars again looked vulnerable when they slipped to six for two in the sixth over, losing opener Chandrapaul Hemraj (1) and rookie Kemol Savory (1).Captain Leon Johnson, who made 43 off 57 balls and opener Tagenarine Chanderpaul who notched a painstaking 40 off 104 balls, posted 61 for the third wicket in an attempt to rebuild the innings.But both found the difficult going against the accuracy of left-arm pacer Saurabh Netravalkar (2-20) and right-armer Ian Holland (2-35) and the partnership required 115 deliveries.Johnson struck three fours and two sixes and was beginning to finally up the tempo of the innings when he sliced off-spinner Steven Taylor to Holland at slip.Barnwell’s arrival signalled an increase in scoring, the veteran blasting seven fours and four sixes to dominate a 66-run, fourth wicket partnership with Chanderpaul.Even then, Chanderpaul managed only two fours before missing a sweep at a full length delivery from left-arm spinner Karima Gore (3-38) and falling lbw.Barnwell put on a further 40 for the sixth wicket with Jonathan Foo (39) to keep the runs flowing but finally perishing in the 44th over, spooning Holland to Taylor at cover.In reply, USA got a top score of 43 from opener Mrundal Patel while Akshay Homraj struck 32 and Holland chipped in with 28, but the innings never really moved into high gear.They were in good stead at 141 for four in the 38th over with Holland and Homraj involved in a 33-run stand but Jaguars made key strikes down the stretch to set back the innings.Holland strayed from his crease and was stumped off left-arm spinner Chandrapaul Hemraj (2-31) and Homraj added a further 31 for the sixth wicket with Gore (17) before smashing a full toss from the same bowler to Ronsford Beaton at deep square in the 44th over.With the required run rate building, the pressure told on the US innings and the run chase petered out tamely.last_img read more

He hasn’t done much in several games this year, so it’s tempting to think he’ll get completely shut out against Ramsey and the Rams this week. But Pittsburgh does move him around quite a bit, so he probably won’t see Ramsey all game. That gives him a chance to put up numbers, and as we’ve seen in past weeks, if he gets the ball, he can make big plays. That’s why he’s (barely) in the WR3 tier, but he’s behind several sleepers, such Zach Pascal (vs. Miami), DeVante Parker (@ Colts), Christian Kirk (@ Buccaneers), and A.J. Brown (vs. Chiefs). It will be tough to actually start these guys ahead of Smith-Schuster, but it’s probably the right move. WEEK 10 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endOverall, this is the type of week where you will have to take a few chances. Maybe that’s on one of the Jets receivers (vs. Giants), Colts receivers (vs. Dolphins), or a big-play guy like Ted Ginn (vs. Falcons) in a good matchup. The options are limited, so don’t be afraid to work the wire and get what you can.MORE WEEK 10:Waiver pickups | FAAB planner | Snap counts | Trade values | Fantasy playoff SOSNote: We’ll continue to update these rankings all week, so check back for the latest and individual player analysis.  Whenever six teams are on bye, like this week, you generally don’t have a lot of options. Sure, there are certain guys you’d like to sit because of bad matchups, but you just can’t. We had a similar feeling with our Week 10 fantasy WR rankings — there are certain players we’d like to move even lower, but it’s tough. Even if we think JuJu Smith-Schuster is going to get swallowed up by Jalen Ramsey and do next-to-nothing, just how low can we put him? It doesn’t help that injuries continue to cloud the rankings. We didn’t even bother ranking Adam Thielen (hamstring) or T.Y. Hilton (calf), and the jury is still out on A.J. Green (ankle) and Brandin Cooks (concussion). Green seems likely to return, and if he does, he’ll get a neutral matchup against Baltimore, so he’s in our WR2 tier. (Update: Green suffered a setback and has been ruled out for Week 10.)last_img read more

Fishing Report — October looking good on the main lake

first_imgReel Adventures Fishing Charters guide Kerry Reed has been away on th West Coast of late. Reed gives a capsule account of life on the ocean as well as helping local fishermen catch the big one on Kootenay Lake.Well, we finally made it back from the West Coast a couple weeks ago. This year’s Salmon fishing was a lot different than most years, probably because of the unusually warm waters. The run of big fish that we usually see just didn’t seem to happen like normal.  We did manage a few big fish up to 32 pounds, but most days saw smaller fish. The trade off was okay though, because there seemed to be a lot of those fish around.  Some days out on the bank, we landed more than 60 fish per day.And I remember one outstanding day where we landed over 100 fish.  So, the non-stop action made up for the size of Salmon.We also caught a lot more Halibut this year and the sizes were up too.  Most of our Hali’s averaged between 15 – 25 pounds, with our biggest couple weighing in around 60 pounds. All in all, we made the best of our season and most people went home happy.  Already planning for next year.Kootenay LakeAnd now we’re back on Kootenay Lake and already into the swing of things. Our last few charters have seen a lot of action for this time of year. Most days we’re catching between 5 – 10 fish.  We’ve been landing Rainbows up to 18 pounds and Dolly Varden (Bull Trout) up to 15 pounds.  I’ve also heard of a few Rainbows over 20 pounds and even up to 25 pounds. That’s amazing fishing at this time. And things are only going to get better. The water temperature is still a bit warm for these fish to begin to get active. So, right now, the fish are scattered. But, as the temperatures cool and our water temp drops, these fish will be getting more and more aggressive.  The best is yet to come.  My favorite time is approaching. October, November, December are prime months for fishing our magnificent lake. What are they biting on??? Since the water temperature is still above 60 degrees, most of the fish are staying deep.  So, we have been catching a lot on the usual flasher/hoochie combo. However, some of our latest fish have been caught on the surface.  So, we need to mix it up a bit. Bucktail flies have been catching a few, as well as lyman plugs and apex lures on the surface. The best bet is to run some lines on the surface, and some lines on the downrigger.  My favorite depths have been between 90 ft – 140 feet. Bucktail fly colors working for me have been: 215, 221, 226, and 228. And my Lyman plugs so far working best are:  #16, 53, 55, and lucky number 69.  Not one pattern has been working better than any other, so keep changing it up until the fish tell you what they want.Derby, Derby, Derby It’s that time of year again — Fishing Derby season. October is not only the beginning of our good fishing, but it’s the beginning of the Fishing derbies. Here’s a list of what is  coming up: October 13-14 – Nelson City Police Alumni Derby November 10-12  –  Kaslo Rainbow Derby          Tight Lines…………..

Oblak: “The stop is reflex”

first_imgStop at Bardhi: “We have made a pretty good game but we have not scored the third and things can get complicated but luckily I have stopped his final occasion.”Suffer: “Of course we want to resolve the game before but if it does not come out, we have not scored the third. The stop is reflexes and luckily I have stopped it and hopefully it will always be so.”Anxiety: “Every moment of the game is different. We have entered well and we have scored quickly and then with the second goal it has given us peace of mind but the ball has not entered the search for the third goal.” Atlético’s goalkeeper, one of the highlights of his team, spoke for the microphones of Movistar + LaLiga after the athletic victory by the minimum (2-1) against Levante. Cut: “There has been an elbow, I’m not dizzy and I’m fine.”Correa: “Oblak is the best goalkeeper in the world”Argentina’s Angel Correa, forward of Atlético de Madrid, said Saturday that Jan Oblak gave him “the three points” to the rojiblanco set in front of Levante (2-1) at Wanda Stadium Metropolitan, while considering that he is “the best goalkeeper in the world” and They are “happy” to have him on the team. “Once again he has shown that he is the best in the world. He gave us the three points”, the attacker explained at a press conference, “happy for the victory of the team, which is the most important thing”. “We needed to start the year like this with a triumph before our people,” he added.“We know how difficult all parties are. We prepare them as if they were all final to compete and remain up there, what is what we want, “he said. – EFElast_img read more

The signing of Cavani by Atlético is a matter of hours

first_imgCavani has not passed the medical examination even with Atlético de Madrid, neither in the capital of Spain nor in Paris, as these sources close to Cavani have confirmed to AS. “But you can be sure that there will be no problem with Edinson’s medical test, because he is in perfect condition after recovering from the small muscle discomfort he had a few weeks ago,” the striker’s environment has been explained to this newspaper. Some small muscular discomforts that served as an excuse for Cavani not to risk, from the postponed game against Monaco, and not be summoned in the following PSG games with a view to his possible signing for Atlético. The contract that the agent and brother of Edinson Cavani is negotiating (on February 14 will turn 33) with the club rojiblanco would be for the rest of the season and maybe two more, or two more one, as it has revealed to AS the environment of the international striker charrúa.The arrival of Cavani at Atlético de Madrid would fulfill Simeone’s aspirations that not only wants the Uruguayan striker for years, but in the absence of goals from Atlético this season, his proven goal scoring nose (198 goals in 293 official matches with PSG) will make a qualitative leap to the rojiblanco team (22 league goals in 21 games). Parallel to the imminent hiring of Cavani by Atlético de Madrid, the rojiblanco club continues to move in team outings, and the most likely is Lemar’s, with a view to square the fair play financial with LaLiga If the ‘Cavani operation’ is closed on Monday, Atlético de Madrid could announce it on Tuesday or Wednesday, once it has passed the relevant medical tests. And it is not disposable, if there is no last minute setback, which could be among those called for the Saturday derby against Real Madrid, at the Bernabéu (4:00 p.m.).center_img The signing of Edinson Cavani by Atlético de Madrid is a matter of hours. AS has been able to speak with the player’s environment and has confirmed that this Monday “everything will be decided”. The brother and agent of the soccer player is in Madrid, as he has also revealed to this newspaper the closest environment of the Uruguayan, to negotiate the conditions of the contract with the club rojiblanco. This means that Atlético Madrid would have already reached an agreement with the PSG to free him. The last offer was 15 million more in three in variables, as L’Equipe said.last_img read more

Restoring Hope to the Hopeless, Episcopal Church Identifies with Several Ebola Survivals, Victims in…

first_imgIn obedience to the Holy Book the Bible, which speaks of being thy brother’s keeper and lending a helping hand to the less fortunate and afflicted, the Episcopal Church of Liberia has distributed several food and non-food materials to Ebola survivors and victims in lower Margibi County.The Episcopal Church donation exercise was done in collaboration with the US-based Episcopal Relief and Development and the United Society, a Norwegian-based humanitarian organization.The distribution was carried out last Thursday to Ebola survivals and victims in Dolo Town, Lower Margibi. Dolo Town, it may  be recalled, was recently quarantined for about a month after several individuals contracted the deadly Ebola Virus disease (EVD) and several others were showing signs and symptoms of the disease.During the course of the quarantine, several residents complained of the shortage of food and other necessities, which was primarily because people could not travel in or out of the area.Government later lifted the quarantine, but residents were still facing the effects of the restriction exercise.Rev. Fr. Victor M. King, who led the Episcopal team to the town, said, “This is why [our church]  has come to intervene.  We want to help the survivors and victims with the little we have, so that they may start their lives over after such a tense period, during which the people were quarantined.”The items distributed by the Church included, Argo Oil, Rice, soap, Clorox, sardine, buckets as well as flyers to educate them on the prevention of the disease.Rev. Fr. King, who spoke on behalf of the head of the Episcopal Diocese of Liberia, Most Rev. Jonathan B.B. Hart, who is also archbishop of the Internal Province of West Africa, said the exercise was intended to buttress the effort of government in its Ebola fight in the country.Rev. King told the gathering that the Episcopal Church is deeply concerned about the Ebola situation in the country, and as such, ECL is ready to go beyond the border to help rescue people who have being affected by the disease.According to him,  “the Episcopal Churches does not wait for people to die before extending a helping hand to them, but they are there to help at all times.” Rev. Fr. King, who is also the Archdeacon of the South-Western  Liberia, told the survivors and victims that all is not  lost. “You can count your blessing and name them one by one, because people that went there did not make it, but for you, you made it and you have the reason to tell God “Thank you.”Moreover, Fr. King urged the survivors and victims to worship God because it was He that saved their lifes.For her part, the program coordinator of the Episcopal Church of Liberia, Madam Agnes Wilson Perkins, told the victims and survivors that the church was not only donating food but they are also engaged  in creating an awareness on the prevention of the disease.Madam Perkins narrated that the mission of the Episcopal Church is to travel in the fifteen counties to distribute food and non-food items to Ebola survivors and victims.According to her, the disease is now a common enemy in Liberia and as a church, they are not only preaching about Ebola trough sermons but also preaching about the disease through the development of the human mind.The Episcopal Church of Liberia program coordinator put the total cost of the items at US$20,000 which will cover Cape Mount, Bomi and River Cess, among others.Meanwhile, Ebola survivors and victims of Dolo Town used the occasion to thank the Episcopal Church of Liberia and its partners for the gesture.In a related development, the Episcopal Church of Liberia has started a two-week intensive free nutritional meal program for Ebola patients at the Island Clinic Ebola Treatment Unit in Monrovia.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
