Spanish billionaire Amancio Ortega has reportedly declared his interest in buying Manchester United from the Glazer family

Armancio Ortega, the founder of clothing brand Zara and the 19th richest man in the world, is said to have thrown his hat into the ring to buy Manchester United.

United’s current owners, the Glazer family, put other billionaires on red alert earlier this week when they revealed they were now ready to sell the club.

Now the Manchester Evening News clarified that Ortega had “already spoken to Old Trafford executives” to declare his interest in buying United.

On a day when it was revealed that Apple are keen to buy Manchester United in a £5.8billion deal, news of Ortega’s reported interest will intrigue fans desperate to see an end to the reign Glazers.

Ortega is 86 years old and worth $61.3 billion, according to The Forbes Billionaires Rich List.

The Spanish fashion billionaire has no experience managing a sports team and instead made his fortune in real estate and fashion.

He owns 59% of the Inditex clothing empire, which he launched in 1975, and last year appointed his daughter, Maria Ortega Perez, as president of Zara.

Ortega, who has three children, would represent a change from the Glazer family, owners of Manchester United since 2005.

But there should be plenty of competition for United as they remain one of the most lucrative businesses in all of sport.

The Glazers confirmed this week that they are ready to sell United after 17 years at the club

In addition to news of Apple’s interest, first revealed by the daily starThere is a line of prominent figures who have expressed an interest in taking over.

Twitter CEO Elon Musk jokingly wrote on the platform this summer that he would buy the club, with the 51-year-old’s post garnering more than 800,000 likes.

UFC superstar Conor McGregor also threw his hat in the ring, having previously expressed interest in taking over the club.

The 34-year-old took to Twitter after the announcement of the European Super League in April last year, writing: “Hey guys I’m thinking of buying Manchester United!” What do you think?’

Any potential deal would almost certainly become the costliest acquisition by a football club in history, topping the £4.25billion fee a Todd Boehly-led consortium paid for Chelsea earlier this year. .

One of the main problems facing anyone buying United is Old Trafford, the club’s iconic stadium. The venue has long needed an overhaul to compete with the biggest clubs in the world.

It is understood that the stadium will cost around £1.5billion to rebuild, making it the most expensive football ground in the world – ahead of Tottenham’s new £1billion stadium.

United moved into the ground – dubbed ‘The Theater of Dreams’ by fans around the world – in 1910 and have called it home ever since. The stadium was recently renovated between 2005 and 2006, with the addition of 8,000 seats.

Elon Musk has tweeted about the potential purchase of Manchester United this summer

Red Devils legend Gary Neville backed calls for a full stadium rebuild, when stories of investment in the arena first emerged in February.

He posted on Instagram: “There’s a story emerging from Old Trafford that they could rebuild the whole stadium and I’ve just been asked what I think.” I actually think that would be the right decision.

“I think the moment they spent the money on Old Trafford, the one that exists, then I think you better build a brand new and better super stadium. I think Manchester United should always be at the top of the stadiums, have the best facilities and they have fallen behind.

Evri was revealed as the worst performing parcel company in the UK for the second year in a row.

He comes like all the greats from the UK plot delivery companies continue to let customers down, with many failing to even achieve a three out of five star rating.

Many consumers have called on the Ofcom regulator to consider fines if delivery companies do not improve their service.

Yodel, DPD, and Amazon Logistics failed to even earn a three-star score based on comprehensive criteria that analyze customer service, package issues, and accessibility needs.

Messenger Logs: PAPennsylvania (Picture: PA)

Evri ranks among the worst performing parcel companies in the UK

Evri, formerly known as Hermès, ranked last for a second year despite improving its score from 2021.

However, it only scored 1.75 stars in Citizens Advice’s second annual package ranking.

Meanwhile, Yodel received the lowest ratings on a single criterion among all carriers, earning just 1.7 stars for its customer service.

43% of Yodel customers surveyed in the Citizens Advice survey said they had a problem with their last delivery.

By comparison, just over a quarter (28%) of Royal Mail customers reported delivery problems with their last order.

Which UK parcel delivery company came out on top?

Overall, Royal Mail ranked first among large companies in the UK, but it’s important to note that it only managed three stars.

A link to the Royal Mail’s online site giving customers advice on ‘If something you ordered hasn’t arrived’ has been viewed nearly 211,000 times in the past 12 months, according to Citizens Advice.

The independent organization also notes that it was viewed 52,000 times in the three months leading up to last Christmas.

How did Citizens Advice rank parcel delivery companies in the UK?

Using data from its consumer service, consumer surveys and social media complaints, Citizens Advice could measure the performance of the top five companies in terms of parcel volume.

Citizens Advice chief executive Dame Clare Moriarty said: “A year later the parcel companies have not pulled themselves together with no one providing a four or five star service.

“Behind the numbers are seriously disappointed shoppers when packages are missing or late. The needs of those who rely on online shopping the most, such as people with disabilities, are overlooked.

“Our findings show that Ofcom needs to do more to protect buyers, and if these companies don’t up their game, they should be fined.”

An Ofcom spokesman said: ‘We agree that some parcel companies let customers down when deliveries go wrong. So we are strengthening our regulations next year to make sure people are treated fairly by parcel companies.

“We welcome research that sheds light on their performance, which we also monitor. If we are unhappy with how businesses react when our new protections take effect, they could face enforcement action or tougher rules in the future.

A Yodel spokesperson said: “We are fully committed to continuous improvement and have invested heavily in customer service infrastructure over the past year, including the launch of a new app and images of proof of delivery that provide customers with greater transparency.

“We disagree with the methodology and conclusions of this report. Our own parcel data and Have Your Say feedback programs show that 84% of our customers have had a positive experience with us in the last six months.

A spokeswoman for Evri said: “As the UK’s leading dedicated parcels company, Evri delivers over two million parcels every day and we pride ourselves on delivering a fast, reliable and sustainable service that doesn’t is cheap for consumers and businesses.”

Why Women Should Workout IN THE MORNING: Exercising before noon is better for your heart, study finds

  • A study looked at physical activity levels while people wore a fitness tracker
  • People were divided into four groups, based on when they were most active
  • People who exercised in the morning were less likely to develop heart problems
  • This included a heart attack as well as the most common form of angina.

Women who exercise in the morning may have a lower risk of heart problems or stroke.

A study of over 85,000 people in the UK looked at their level of physical activity while wearing a fitness tracker for a week.

People were divided into four groups, including those who were most active early in the morning, around 8 a.m., and those most active mid-morning around 10 a.m.

The other two groups contained the most active people at noon and in the evening around 7 p.m.

A study of over 85,000 people in the UK looked at their level of physical activity while wearing a fitness tracker for a week

People who exercised in the morning or mid-morning had a lower risk of developing heart problems, including heart attack, the most common form of angina, and coronary heart disease.

Those who exercised mid-morning were less likely to have a stroke.

Gali Albalak, who led the study from Leiden University Medical Center in the Netherlands, said: “It is well established that exercise is good for heart health, and our study now indicates that morning activity seems be the most beneficial.

“The results were particularly pronounced in females and applied to both early risers and night owls.”

The study, published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology, involved people aged 42 to 78 who had never had cardiovascular disease and had enrolled in the UK Biobank Health Study. .

After recording their exercise pace, they were followed for six to eight years, during which time 2,911 people developed heart problems and nearly 800 had strokes.

By comparing peak hours of activity over a 24-hour period, researchers found that being most active between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. was linked to the lowest risk of heart disease and stroke. cerebral.

The group of people who exercised the most first, around 8 a.m., were 11% less likely to develop heart problems than the most active people around noon.

People who exercised the most mid-morning were 16% less likely to have heart problems and 17% less likely to have a stroke than people who were more active around noon.

The results held true whether people were generally more active or more inactive, and whether they described themselves as a morning person or an evening person.

But, when the results were analyzed separately for men and women, the researchers found that women seemed to benefit significantly from doing more exercise in the morning, while men did not.

Women who were most active in the early morning or late morning had more than a fifth lower risk of heart problems than those who exercised the most around midday.

Ms Albalak said: ‘It is too early for formal guidance to prioritize morning exercise as this is a fairly new area of ​​research.

“But we hope that one day we can refine the current recommendations by simply adding a line – ‘when exercising, it is advisable to do it in the morning’.”

Dr Raymond Noordam, lead author of the study from Leiden University Medical Center in the Netherlands, said: “There is no doubt that exercise is beneficial regardless of the time of day, and c is the most important message.”

“But these new results show that doing most physical activity in the morning may be more beneficial.”

HOW MUCH EXERCISE YOU NEED

To stay healthy, adults ages 19 to 64 should try to be active daily and should do:

  • at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity such as cycling or brisk walking each week and
  • strength training 2 or more days a week that works all major muscles (legs, hips, back, abdomen, chest, shoulders, and arms)

Or:

  • 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity such as running or a game of singles tennis each week and
  • strength training 2 or more days a week that works all major muscles (legs, hips, back, abdomen, chest, shoulders, and arms)

Or:

  • a mix of moderate and vigorous aerobic activity each week – for example, 2 x 30 minutes of running plus 30 minutes of brisk walking equals 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity and
  • strength training 2 or more days a week that works all major muscles (legs, hips, back, abdomen, chest, shoulders, and arms)

A good rule of thumb is that 1 minute of vigorous activity provides the same health benefits as 2 minutes of moderate activity.

One way to get your recommended 150 minutes of weekly physical activity is to do 30 minutes 5 days a week.

All adults should also break up long periods of sitting with light activity.

Travel Tip for Getting Extra Baggage on a Plane https://artbydepaola.com/travel-tip-for-getting-extra-baggage-on-a-plane/ Sun, 13 Nov 2022 02:31:00 +0000 https://artbydepaola.com/travel-tip-for-getting-extra-baggage-on-a-plane/ Watch a thrifty airline passenger get a whole extra bag for free on his flight with a sneaky travel move: ‘This man is a master of his craft’ A man reveals how he avoids having to pay excess baggage fees The traveler put a backpack under his jacket to hide the extra bag Another man […]]]>

Watch a thrifty airline passenger get a whole extra bag for free on his flight with a sneaky travel move: ‘This man is a master of his craft’

  • A man reveals how he avoids having to pay excess baggage fees
  • The traveler put a backpack under his jacket to hide the extra bag
  • Another man put his foot under his bag as he was weighed to avoid a charge
  • Airline staff were unaware that his foot lifted the bag to reduce weight

A traveler has revealed how he beat strict airline baggage allowances by taking an extra piece of luggage on a plane without paying.

The man concealed his rucksack by wearing a jumper over it before confidently walking towards busy airline staff to have his boarding pass checked.

Unbeknownst to the staff, the passenger – who was also holding a briefcase – was allowed to board the plane with an extra bag which he did not have to pay for.

Another passenger spotted the move and shared it on TikTok.

The man hid his rucksack by putting a large jumper over it and walking confidently towards busy airline staff to have his boarding pass checked (pictured)

She posted images of the man’s sweater stretched over the bulky backpack with the caption: ‘When you don’t want to pay for that extra bag’.

Viewers were impressed by the man’s ingenuity.

“A man who was smart even though I didn’t see him,” wrote one viewer.

’20kg of something in this bag. He’s a master of his craft,” said another.

In another sneaky situation, a man reduced the weight of his check-in bag by placing his foot under it while being weighed.

The man made sure to maintain eye contact with airline staff while he made the move and avoided paying a hefty excess baggage fine.

The cost of bringing extra baggage on the low-cost airline Jetstar is around $45 on a domestic flight within Australia and New Zealand.

On flights between the two countries, the fee can climb to around $70.

Earlier this year, a flight attendant revealed his hack for sneaking extra hand luggage onto a plane without being charged.

Miguel Muñoz, who has been a flight attendant for more than a decade, says the trick to slipping extra hand luggage onto any plane is to disguise it as a duty-free purchase by hiding it in a shopping bag .

He said many passengers are unaware that duty-free baggage does not count towards your hand baggage allowance – a fact that travelers can use to their advantage whenever they find themselves with more baggage than this. which is allowed to them.

According to Miguel, passengers wishing to take extra baggage on their flight should simply ask the staff at one of the airport’s duty-free shops for a shopping bag – which they can then slip their own hand luggage into.

The sneaky money-saving tricks in the air come as the cost of flying continues to skyrocket due to a combination of factors such as staff shortages, fuel prices, the impact of air travel rates. inflation and a growing demand for post-pandemic travel.

Travelers looking to get in and out of Australian capitals have been warned that the cost of flights will almost double as the holiday season approaches.

Holidaymakers have been told to expect high airfares until mid-2022 as airlines scramble to recoup losses from the Covid-19 pandemic.

Experts say those who wait until January 10 to travel may be rewarded with a slightly cheaper flight – but warning fares will cost triple pre-Covid levels for some time.

Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in the world. Every year in the UK there are over 55,000 new cases and the disease claims the lives of 11,500 women. In the United States, it strikes 266,000 people each year and kills 40,000. But what causes it and how can it be treated?

What is breast cancer?

Breast cancer starts from a cancerous cell growing in the lining of a duct or lobule in one of the breasts.

When breast cancer has spread to surrounding breast tissue, it is called “invasive” breast cancer. Some people are diagnosed with “carcinoma in situ,” where no cancerous cells have grown beyond the duct or lobule.

Most cases develop in women over 50, but younger women are sometimes affected. Breast cancer can develop in men although it is rare.

Staging means how big the cancer is and whether it has spread. Stage 1 is the earliest stage and stage 4 means the cancer has spread to another part of the body.

Cancer cells are graded from low, which means slow growth, to high, which means fast growth. High-grade cancers are more likely to come back after being treated for the first time.

What causes breast cancer?

A cancerous tumor starts from an abnormal cell. The exact reason why a cell becomes cancerous is unclear. Something is thought to be damaging or altering certain genes in the cell. This makes the cell abnormal and multiplies “out of control”.

Although breast cancer can develop for no apparent reason, certain risk factors can increase the risk of developing breast cancer, such as genetics.

What are the symptoms of breast cancer?

The usual first symptom is a painless lump in the breast, although most breast lumps are non-cancerous and are fluid-filled cysts, which are benign.

The first place where breast cancer usually spreads is the lymph nodes in the armpit. If this happens, you will develop a swelling or lump in an armpit.

How is breast cancer diagnosed?

  • Initial assessment: A doctor examines the breasts and armpits. They can do tests like a mammogram, a special X-ray of the breast tissue that can indicate the possibility of tumors.
  • Biopsy: A biopsy is the removal of a small sample of tissue from a part of the body. The sample is then examined under a microscope to look for abnormal cells. The sample can confirm or rule out cancer.

If you are confirmed to have breast cancer, further tests may be needed to see if it has spread. For example, blood tests, liver ultrasound or chest X-ray.

How is breast cancer treated?

Treatment options that may be considered include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and hormone therapy. Often a combination of two or more of these treatments is used.

  • Surgery: Breast-conserving surgery or removal of the affected breast depending on the size of the tumour.
  • Radiation therapy: A treatment that uses high-energy beams of radiation focused on cancerous tissue. This kills cancer cells or stops cancer cells from multiplying. It is mainly used in addition to surgery.
  • Chemotherapy: Treatment of cancer using anticancer drugs that kill cancer cells or prevent them from multiplying
  • Hormone treatments: Some types of breast cancer are affected by estrogen, a “female” hormone, which can stimulate cancer cells to divide and multiply. Treatments that reduce the level of these hormones or prevent them from working are commonly used in people with breast cancer.

How successful is the treatment?

The outlook is better in those who are diagnosed when the cancer is still small and hasn’t spread. Surgical removal of a tumor at an early stage can then give a good chance of recovery.

Routine mammography offered to women aged 50 to 70 means more breast cancers are being diagnosed and treated at an early stage.

Ulrika Jonsson has slammed Steve-O for ghosting Stacey Solomon after a six-month romance.

The presenter, 55, told how TV star Stacey, 33, must have felt ‘baffled, confused, heartbroken and angry’ by her actions and felt ‘horrified’ by her behavior .

It comes after Steve-O last month admitted he ‘got what I wanted and broke it up’ during his relationship with Stacey, after the pair split in 2015 after six months of dating .

Shock: Ulrika Jonsson slammed Steve-O for ghosting Stacey Solomon after six-month romance

Reflecting on the relationship in his new book, A Hard Kick in the Nuts: What I’ve Learned from a Lifetime of Terrible Decisions, he said he “still resented me” for the way they ended.

In response, Ulrika wrote in The sun: ‘I was quite horrified to think that this kind of behavior continued. Stacey was with this man for six months.

“She would have gotten to know her family and her two sons, Leighton and Zachary. I can only imagine how bewildered, confused, heartbroken and angry Stacey must have been.

Horrible: This comes after Steve-O admitted last month that he

Horrible: This comes after last month Steve-O admitted he ‘got what I wanted and broke it off’ during his relationship with Stacey, after the pair split in 2015 after six months attendance

“Because the problem with just disappearing – extracting yourself from someone’s life in this way – is that instead of drawing a line under things, it raises more questions.

“Stacey won’t have been the first and she won’t be the last, that’s quite the way of doing things these days.”

Ulrika went on to share her own experiences of being a ghost, saying she was “baffled” when someone she had been on a date with just “disappeared”.

Unlikely couple Stacey and Steve-O met while appearing on TV show The Jump in 2015, but it was revealed they had split six months later, with Stacey “really hurt” by the situation.

In his book, The Sun reports that Steve-O shared details of the relationship – showing remorse for the way it was handled.

He admitted that despite being ‘in love’ with Stacey, he quickly ghosted her, despite meeting her two young children, Leighton and Zachery at the time.

“I was seduced, I showered her with attention, I got what I wanted and then I broke up. I was not only part of her life, I was also part of her children’s life. And then – poof – I left,” the Jackass star wrote.

Continuing: “To this day, I’m still struggling with how it happened.”

Where it all started: The unlikely couple met while appearing on TV show The Jump in 2015, but it was revealed they had split six months later, with Stacey being ‘really hurt’ by the situation.

The TV star, who was battling sex addiction at the time, reflected on her “self-sabotaging” relationship structure, which also followed struggles with alcohol and drugs.

But while Steve-O holds himself accountable for the actions, it seems Stacey has no bad blood, as he went on to say that she doesn’t seem to have a grudge against him.

At the time, Stacey shared that she was “still trying to figure out” what was wrong as she was asked why they broke up.

While her representative told MailOnline at the time: ‘I can confirm that Stacey and Steve-O are no longer together. Stacey is really hurt by the whole situation, and it’s not something she feels able to talk about right now.

But the heartbreak appears to have worked out for the better in the long run, with Stacey marrying husband Joe Swash earlier this year, and the couple welcoming their youngest children Rex and Rose.

While things have also looked up for Steve-O, who is now engaged to stylist Lux Wright.

Harry’s Forbidden Love Triangle in New My Policeman Movie https://artbydepaola.com/harrys-forbidden-love-triangle-in-new-my-policeman-movie/ Fri, 28 Oct 2022 21:30:49 +0000 https://artbydepaola.com/harrys-forbidden-love-triangle-in-new-my-policeman-movie/ In a small seaside town in the 1990s, retired policeman Tom (Linus Roache) and his former schoolteacher wife Marion (Gina McKee) are side by side in a pretty good marriage.

In a small seaside town in the 1990s, retired policeman Tom (Linus Roache) and his former schoolteacher wife Marion (Gina McKee) are side by side in a pretty good marriage. And if it’s not exactly the fiery affair they might have dreamed of, well, they’re old enough to know that life can be full of disappointments.

Old passions are rekindled, however, when a distant friend, museum curator Patrick (Rupert Everett), unexpectedly reappears in their lives, virtually paralyzed by a devastating stroke. Patrick is the man who, 40 years ago, first won Tom’s love – then broke his heart.

Marion is ready to forgive and forget, but Tom’s feelings are much more complicated.

So begins My Policeman, the new film starring pop star-turned-actor Harry Styles and Emma Corrin of The Crown. He soon returns to Brighton in the 1950s, a time when homosexuality was illegal.

A well-meaning but repressed young Tom (Styles) meets a young Marion (Corrin) and quickly falls in love with her, or as much as he can.

He soon introduces her to his slightly older and excitingly worldly wise friend Patrick, and the three become good friends. At least, until Marion realizes the exact nature of Tom and Patrick’s relationship.

For despite her love for Tom, she finds the idea of ​​homosexuality repugnant – a prejudice that ends up having devastating consequences for all three.

The film is based on Bethan Roberts’ 2012 bestseller of the same name, which in turn is based on the real-life love triangle between writer EM Forster and married cop Robert Buckingham. His wife May shared her husband with Forster, cared for the author after his stroke and gave his friendship with Buckingham a veneer of respectability.

Many gay men in mid-20th century Britain took such measures in order to keep their relationships a secret, and the film shows this through Patrick’s friendship with Marion.

What sets My Policeman apart from other such tales is the thread of affection that ties the three characters together. “There’s a lot of genuine friendship between them all,” Harry said.

“Despite all the complexity and deceptive nature of the triangle, it is still there.

“Tom’s love for Marion is real and Tom’s love for Patrick is real, and Marion and Patrick are actually really good friends, so there’s real love there too. It was important that everyone don’t be so black and white in terms of “Well, you’ve done me wrong and that means I don’t love you anymore.” That’s not really the way the world works, or the way people human beings work.

What sets My Policeman apart from other such tales is the thread of affection that ties the three characters together.

Harry says Tom is very firmly of his time. “He was born into a very small world, and if you were born into that environment, you know where the edge of your world is. Tom is a curious man, and when he meets Patrick, it arouses his curiosity. He realizes that the edge of his world is a little further than Brighton.

In real life, Emma Corrin identifies as queer and non-binary and prefers the use of the gender-neutral pronoun “they”. Nevertheless, Emma feels compassion for the bigoted Marion.

“The decisions Marion makes intrigued me, because I really had to justify myself,” Emma explains. “I understood the complexities of these young people living and working in strange times and trying to figure out who they are.”

One thing that is beyond doubt is that, whatever her actions, Marion undoubtedly loves Tom – and fiercely too.

“She’s so convinced it’s going to work, and so convinced that he feels exactly the same way about her as she feels about him,” Emma says.

“And then when she finds out the truth about him and Patrick, her anger isn’t really about their relationship – which she doesn’t really understand – but about the fact that she was wrong. Anger drives her to do what she does, and that’s what she’ll have to live with for the rest of her life.

For Rupert Everett, the film carries a message of hope. “It’s a fascinating journey to take, to go back from modern homosexuality to 1950s homosexuality and see how far we’ve come,” he says.

“It’s a great opportunity to see how far things have come. It’s basically what makes you leave cinema with hope, because we’re constantly changing. It’s very exciting.”

My Policeman is available on Amazon Prime Video from Friday.

Animal magic: Meet the loyal Rottweilers who run away with ex-CIA agent Jeff Bridges in The Old Man

Jeff Bridges may be the biggest star in action thriller The Old Man, but he’s not the most blessed. The five Rottweiler dogs who play her character’s two pets, Dave and Carol, had inflatable bone-shaped pools on set in Los Angeles and enjoyed daily swims.

“They love the water, and getting them relaxed for the scenes they had to shoot was vital,” says trainer and owner Sarah Clifford.

Keeping them happy was very important as Dave and Carol are an integral part of the action.

‘In the book the series is based on, my character [ex-CIA agent] Dan Chase ran away from the Secret Service with his two big dogs so it had to happen,” says Jeff. “There is a bond between man and his animals.

Creed, Cain, Freya and Finnelly were used for the bulk of the scenes and Daisy did the more energetic action sequences. “She had a bite like no other,” laughs Jeff.

The dogs live at Sarah’s ranch in California, which is also home to 11 other dogs as well as horses, a goat and a pig. Thousands of hours have been spent training them.

Sarah strapped a squeaky toy to a stuntman’s arm, added the scent of a treat and encouraged the dogs to attack until it was second nature. Cain learned how to gently apply pressure to a stuntman’s neck for scenes in which Dave and Carol protect Dan from bad guys.

Once on set, the animals had black and tan coloring added to their fur to look the part.

Jeff became very attached to his co-stars on set.

“They all had to overcome obstacles. Finnelly had a difficult journey from Budapest, where he was rescued. Freya was a breeding dog who didn’t socialize with humans, and Creed was days away from being euthanized because they couldn’t find an owner for her. From there to the red carpet premiere of The Old Man, it’s quite the journey!

The Old Man is on Disney+.
