Injured Neymar could miss the Copa America in Brazil

first_imgAfter knowing that Neymar’s injury may take him back to the operating room, Brazil manager ‘Tite’ revealed that he may even miss the Copa America.Terrible news for Neymar and Brazil, the national team that will host this year’s Copa America might miss out on the PSG star due to his most recent metatarsal injury.Last year as we all know, the star fell injured with a fracture on exactly the same area where he recently suffered the new setback.Everybody was trying to keep the results of his latest tests a secret, but L’Equipe was able to get a hold of the results and the news are very bad for both his club and country.Even though Paris Saint-Germain is trying to avoid the player from going under the knife again, it appears that there will be no choice for him and there will be a new surgery that will set him back for at least two months.This means that after getting surgery, Neymar will have to take a recovery period that effectively leaves him out of any competition with PSG and he will most likely miss the two matches against Manchester United in the Champions League.But that’s not all, this problem seems to go even deeper than only a few months of not playing football for his club.Manager ‘Tite’ spoke to the press from Paris on Monday to talk about the situation in detail, the expectations are not good.#CopaAmerica2019 🏆 | ¡Neymar podría perderse la Copa América! https://t.co/BHPMLsSJtJ pic.twitter.com/jkBtZre2qc— Diario SPORT (@sport) January 28, 2019Brazil’s main objective this year will be to win the upcoming Copa America that will be celebrated in their own country, they had Neymar as their biggest star for the competition but manager ‘Tite’ is having second thoughts about calling up the PSG star for the competition.Knowing how bad the result was from last year’s World Cup for Brazil, the boss revealed that he won’t call Neymar for the tournament if he thinks risking him isn’t necessary.‘Tite’ is aware that Brazil currently has a lot of great players who have the skills to replace Neymar if the star cannot get to the Copa America at the top of his game, he would prefer to leave him resting at home instead of risking his fresh injury once again.“PSG have taken a conservative approach towards the injury,” said ‘Tite’ to the press in Paris via Diario AS.“They [PSG] called Dr Lasmar, and other specialists are going to come,” he added.PSG, Neymar, Ligue 1PSG ultras sent a warning letter to Neymar Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Brazilian superstar Neymar might play today his first game of the season for Paris Saint-Germain and the team’s ultras have warned him.“Only then will they decide about what to do with his foot. It seems right to me that there is caution at this moment.”“Neymar will not pay the price at the cost of his health,” his manager said.“I will lose my job, but I’m not going to put the responsibility onto his shoulders by calling him [while injured].”Tres patadas, la respuesta de Neymar tras reanudarse el juego es ejemplar pic.twitter.com/8PKlAqVwV8— L. Alcázar (@l_Alcazar) January 28, 2019The clock has already started ticking for Neymar, he will do everything in his power to not last too long in recovery and make it all the way to the Copa America in his country.As far as the reports tell us, a decision of whether the player gets surgery or not hasn’t been made yet and any news on the matter will be published on this website as soon as we know that will happen.Neymar is currently resting at his house in Paris, he is not yet scheduled to travel to Brazil for any second opinion from any doctor because the Brazil National Team’s medical staff has traveled to France in order to assess the situation.This might be the perfect opportunity for other young players such as Vinicius Junior or Lucas Paqueta to make their debut with the senior squad, they will have to take over during the time that Neymar gets fully recovered from his latest injury.Paris Saint-Germain will have to make do without Neymar for now, they have Cavani and Mbappé to cover his absence but not even they might be enough to compete against Manchester United.Neymar lesionado para los de final, lo celebro pic.twitter.com/fc0kOw7ajf— A l o n s o G a r c í a (@alonsowaga) January 28, 2019How long will it take Neymar to get completely recovered at PSG?

You Bought a Print Magazine in 2017

first_img Miller: The answer is, probably not in print. We are looking to diversify our digital properties and bring them into other markets. Not necessarily in the LGBTQ space, but in some of our other businesses. Where we’ve fallen short is in digital, so we’re really positioned in the acquisition by Davler to become the number one player across the board in the LGBTQ space. Miller: Rob has done events. He’s taken a year or two off but we’re planning to bring them back. Miller: The biggest one — we recently made another acquisition of a business called Mommybites. It’s folded into our Parenting division. It’s basically a job board online for nannys, babysitters and moms that are looking for jobs. That’s already a national property as well, but not from the job board standpoint. We distribute national content and hold national education events. Now we’re looking to take our job boards and role that out nationally. That’s the one that’s furthest along in development. Folio: Is Davler looking to expand across the country with any other publications, now that you have an LA and a national magazine? Folio: What are your digital ad products? What’s available to marketers? Rob Davis: In these days of increasing desire by advertisers to go digital with their advertising buys, we really had been looking for a partner that could help us branch out in the digital world, and who had larger resources than what we were able to do as a smaller, independent company. This partnership is something that helps us go much further than we could go on our own. So why buy a niche brand like this in a market that’s moving away from tactile media products? Miller: That’s a hard one. Right now I can say that all of our print media are reasonably stable, and I think they’re reasonably stable because we’re very niche, we’re very targeted, and we still give people useful information in a print format that is digestible and helpful. Are things shifting digitally? Of course they are. One of the things about Metrosource that we really liked is that over the years, Rob has built a really strong directory component in the back. So it really is a way for readers and consumers to find doctors, and wedding venues, or gyms that really serve that community. In that regard, it’s very consistent with all of our other media and a perfect fit. All of our properties take an integrated approach — print, digital, and events — to provide consumers a targeted information source…The beauty of it is that it delivers a very efficient vehicle for our advertisers to reach those markets. They can buy an integrated program. So, the LGBTQ community has some common attributes to that. This is a community, the data shows, that has a real interest in doing business with companies that are sensitive and support the LGBTQ community. Davler CEO David Miller, left, and Metrograph publisher Rob Davis, right. It’s 2017 and Davler Media just bought three print magazines. First launched in 1990, Metrosource is an upscale brand directed at professionals in the LGBTQ community. With editions in NYC and LA, as well as a national publication, Metrosource has a combined circulation of 235,000 in print, which is also where most of its revenues come from. Folio: Rob, why was now a good time to sell Metrosource? Folio: So is print advertising the main revenue source at Metrosource? Folio: sat down with Davler CEO David Miller, and Rob Davis, longtime owner of the magazine and now its publisher, to find out what’s in store for the magazine. All of the hype in the news about gay rights, gay marriage — it’s been a very big topic — that has brought some advertisers out of the woodwork. We’re poised even more so with the Trump administration. We’re a vehicle to embrace diversity, so companies that are looking to show their support are interested more than ever in these more upscale publications. Folio: How has your advertising been affected since LGBTQ coverage has become more mainstream? Has that affected your revenues at all? Davis: When I started Metrosource, there were no publications geared toward the LGBTQ community that weren’t sexually explicit. I saw this incredible need for people in our community — professionals — who were looking for something else. Our first issue came out in 1990 and it was just overwhelmingly embraced by the local market. It became a great opportunity for national advertisers to finally come into a publication where they could show their support of the gay market and be proud of the content that they were next to. That just didn’t exist prior to the first issue of Metrosource. Folio: What did Davler see in Metrosource as a publication? We realized there was a real need and desire for the rest of the country to get the same type of content…So 10 years after Metrosource began, we launched our national edition, and then in 2004, I went to Los Angeles to get Metrosource LA off the ground. We’re the number one print publication in those two markets among any media, regional or national. Folio: As you move your focus toward digital assets, what role do you see print having in the next 10, 20 years? Davis: Because of the niche, there are so many companies that want to reach this audience. You’re right in that it’s become more and more accepted among mainstream advertisers; and they had really limited options of the places they could go into. David Miller: We have four other divisions [tourism, parenting, design, and bar/bat mitzvahs] and the commonality in all of them is that our media is almost exclusive New York focused, though not 100 percent. One of the nice things about Metrosource is that it does branch us out beyond New York, but it’s strong in New York. Miller: At the moment, yes. It’s almost exclusively print. Folio: Does Metrosource have any events? I can’t tell you what 10 years looks like, but hopefully I’ll be a grandfather.last_img read more

Google plagued by data and privacy issues still rakes it in

first_img Privacy Google Apple Alphabet Inc. Google has also been the target of intense scrutiny in Washington, DC. Several prominent Republicans, including President Trump, have accused Google of an anticonservative bias. In August, Trump tweeted that Google’s search results are “rigged,” saying the company is “suppressing voices of Conservatives.” In December, when Pichai faced the then-GOP controlled House of Representatives, he fielded questions from angry Republican lawmakers about what they considered liberal leanings by  Google’s workforce. And last week, the search giant felt the wrath of Apple. Google misused an App Store program to distribute an app called Screenwise Meter to consumers. The app, first released in 2012, invited users outside the company to earn gift cards in exchange for letting Google monitor and analyze their data. (Facebook was doing something similar with an app called Facebook Research.)After the news coverage, Google shut down the app for iOS devices on its own, but Apple still punished Google by blocking its ability to distribute internal apps. The outage only lasted a few hours, but underscored the tremendous power Apple has over Google. The YouTube factorOn Monday, Pichai also indicated that YouTube, which Google owns, had a strong quarter. The company, however, doesn’t break out YouTube’s revenue. “In the long run, I think for me, YouTube is a place where we see users not only come for entertainment,” Pichai said on the call. “They come to find information. They’re coming to learn about things. They’re coming to discover, to research.”That isn’t surprising. YouTube is the world’s largest video site, with more than 1 billion visitors a month. But it also underscores the need for Google to invest in security and safety, and fight abuse and disinformation. The site is still reeling from coordinated campaigns that used it to try to influence the 2016 election, as well as problems with extremist and objectionable content. Pichai was also asked by an analyst if he’s reconsidered the 30 percent cut that Google takes from software developers when they distribute their apps on the company’s Play store. Pichai said the cut is an industry standard (Apple takes the same percentage on its iOS App Store), and noted that there are infrastructure and engagement benefits to being on the Play store. “So I think we’ll continue down that path, but obviously, always adapt to where the market is,” Pichai said. First published Feb. 4 at 1:08 p.m. PT.Update, 3:34 p.m. PT: Adds information from Alphabet’s conference call.

CEO Sundar Pichai was dragged in front of Congress in December to answer for privacy and censorship scandals. And just last week, the search giant angered Apple for violating the terms of its App Store while distributing a market research app. One thing is still golden for Google, though: It’s making a ton of money. In the last three months of the year, Google’s parent, Alphabet, tallied $39.27 billion in sales, beating analyst estimates of $38.94 billion, the company said Monday. Earnings per share were $12.77. Analysts on average had expected $10.82 per share, according to Thomson Reuters.”More than 20 years in, there is still tremendous opportunity for Google to help people save time, learn new things, grow their businesses and build stronger communities,” Pichai said during a conference call with analysts on Monday. Traffic acquisition costs, or the fees the company pays to partners to make sure its search results are seen, rose to $7.4 billion from $6.4 billion over the same period last year. That came to 23 percent of Google’s total advertising sales. The company also said it’s spending more money on its “other bets,” which include projects like Waymo’s self-driving cars and Verily’s medical technology. The operating loss for those initiatives was $1.3 billion in the fourth quarter, up from $784 million the year before. Shares fell about 3 percent in after-hours trading on those higher expenses.Facing controversies  The just-ended quarter capped off arguably the toughest year of Google’s existence. In November, Google workers made history when more than 20,000 employees and contractors from cities around the world walked out of their offices to protest the company’s handling of sexual assault accusations against top executives. The walkout marked the peak in a year of protests by Google employees, who spoke out against the company’s work with the Pentagon and Google’s plans for a search project called Dragonfly in China. 1:45 Sep 1 • iPhone 11, Apple Watch 5 and more: The final rumorslast_img read more

Will Smiths daughter wants to date both man and woman at the

first_imgWill Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith at the premiere of AladdinInstagramWill and Jada Pinkett Smith’s daughter Willow Smith recently revealed that she sees herself as someone who would date both woman and a man at the same time.During the recent episode of Jada Pinkett Smith’s Facebook Watch talk show, Red Table Talk, Willow got super candid about her relationship. The 18-year-old teen revealed that her ideal relationship would be a polyamorous throuple with a woman and a man — at the same time. A throuple is a kind of a romantic or sexual relationship where three partners are involved at the same time. Willow loves both the genders equally and wishes to date both the genders.Willow added that she feels like there are “so many different kinds of people in this world and so many things to learn.” She further stated that she would be putting herself at a disadvantage if she closed herself off to those practices.During the chat, Willow stated that she feels that monogamy is steeped in the idea of ownership. But both her grandmother and mother did not seem to agree with her ideologies and admitted their discomfort towards the same. Even Jada stated that “I think my stomach just…” she then made a turning motion with her hands but later added, “whatever makes you happy…”Now as per the latest report by HollywoodLife, both Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are open-minded when it comes to the relationship choices of their children. As per a close friend, the married couple who was recently in news for their marriage is apparently liberal.”Will and Jada are extremely proud of both their children and want nothing more than for them to live their life the way they want to live it,” revealed the alleged source. “They were well aware that Willow felt this way about relationships, but are very proud that she shared her views with the world. It’s important for them all that people can hear these things so if anyone is struggling with the way they want to live their life maybe they can look to Willow as a role model.”last_img read more

Louvre attacker suspected to be Egyptian

first_imgA placard reading “the Louvre museum will not be open today” is displayed at the entrance of the Louvre museum in Paris. Photo: AFPFrench investigators believe the man who launched a machete attack outside the Louvre in Paris, before being shot and wounded by a soldier, is a 29-year-old Egyptian who entered the country on a tourist visa.The incident has thrust security and the terror threat back into the limelight three months before elections in France, with authorities saying it was a “terrorist” assault.The attacker, in a black t-shirt bearing a skull design and armed with two 40-centimetre (16-inch) machetes, lunged at four patrolling French soldiers while shouting “Allahu Akbar” (“God is greatest”), Paris prosecutor Francois Molins told a press conference.One of the troops was struck on the head and another fell to the ground outside the famous Paris museum after the assailant attacked. The second soldier managed to open fire and hit the machete-wielder in the stomach.“The attacker fell to the ground, seriously wounded. He has been taken to hospital and is fighting for his life,” the prosecutor said.A source later said that the suspect’s condition had stabilised. Security forces said one soldier had suffered a minor head wound.Police held hundreds of tourists in secure areas of the world famous attraction after the assailant was shot five times around 10:00 am (0900 GMT) in a public area near one of the museum’s entrances.‘Terrorist nature’The attacker who is thought to live in the United Arab Emirates, is believed to have entered France legally on a flight from Dubai on January 26, a source said.An Egyptian passport, thought to be the suspect’s, was found during a search of an apartment in an expensive district of Paris near the Champs-Elysees.The UAE government condemned the “hateful crime” and assured France of its “full solidarity”.As French authorities probed the attacker’s background, President Francois Hollande said that “there is little doubt as to the terrorist nature of this act,” an assessment echoed by Prime Minister Bernard Cazeneuve.France was already still reeling from a string of terror attacks over the last two years and the country has been under a state of emergency since November 2015.The economy, immigration and security are major issues for voters ahead of presidential and parliamentary elections forecast to confirm the country’s shift right after five years of Socialist rule.US President Donald Trump tweeted that a “new radical Islamic terrorist has just attacked in Louvre Museum in Paris. Tourists were locked down. France on edge again. GET SMART US.”Witnesses described scenes of panic as people fled the Louvre complex following the incident.“We heard gunshots. We didn’t know what it was about. Then we evacuated the employees and we left,” one man who works in a nearby restaurant told AFP.A woman colleague said: “We saw death coming for us, with everything that’s happening at the moment. We were very, very scared.”String of attacksThe Louvre closed following the attack—but will re-open on Saturday.Paris’ lucrative tourism industry has been a major casualty of the terror attacks, with visitors cancelling or shortening their stays.The Louvre, a former royal palace in the heart of the city, has seen annual visitor numbers fall by some two million since 2015 to 7.3 million after the spate of recent attacks across France hit its claim to be the world’s most visited museum.The series of terror attacks in France began in January 2015 when jihadist gunmen rampaged through the Charlie Hebdo satirical newspaper and a Jewish supermarket, leaving 17 people dead in three days of bloodshed.Ten months later, gunmen and suicide bombers from the Islamic State jihadist group attacked bars, restaurants, a concert hall and the national stadium in Paris, killing 130 people.And last July, a Tunisian extremist rammed a lorry through crowds celebrating Bastille Day in Nice on France’s south coast, crushing 86 people to death.Security has been a key campaign theme ahead of the presidential election in April and May, which a parliamentary election will follow in June.Rightwing candidate Francois Fillon, whose tough line on immigration and Islam made him an early poll favourite, has been ensnared in a damaging parliamentary expenses scandal in recent days.Anti-immigrant far-right leader Marine Le Pen is hoping for a boost from the furore and Trump’s election, while 39-year-old centrist independent Emmanuel Macron is also climbing in the polls.Friday’s incident came on the very day that Paris submitted its formal bid dossier to host the 2024 Summer Olympics.last_img read more
