About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say PSG midfielder Ander Herrera: No Man Utd player believed they could winby Paul Vegas6 days agoSend to a friendShare the lovePSG midfielder Ander Herrera has spoken of his move from Manchester United.The Spaniard insists there was no concern arriving, despite United knocking PSG out of the Champions League last season.Herrera stated: “It’s not difficult to get to PSG from Manchester United because I have the opportunity to play for an incredible club, but what happened last season is not normal. “Even among the players, no one thought they could win this game. “Football is like that, sometimes if you sleep two or three minutes, you are punished.”
NEW YORK, N.Y. – The Weinstein Co., mired in a sex scandal, may be putting itself up for sale.The company said Monday that it is getting an immediate cash infusion from Colony Capital and is in negotiations for the potential sale of all or a significant portion of the movie studio responsible for films like “Shakespeare in Love,” and “Gangs of New York.”Co-founder Harvey Weinstein was fired by the company last week following allegations of sexual harassment and assault. The allegations span decades.The fallout has been swift, with Weinstein issuing a lengthy and seemingly tone-deaf apology while losing various honours. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has revoked his membership.

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – A member of the Fort St. John RCMP detachment is being called a hero after saving the life of a man who injured himself in the parking lot of an apartment building on the City’s east side over the weekend.Sgt. Dave Tyreman with the Fort St. John RCMP said that officers were called out to an apartment building in the 8500-block of 86th St. at around 2:00 a.m. Sunday. Upon arrival, officers discovered a man next to a vehicle who was unresponsive and appeared to have lost a large quantity of blood.Officers learned that the man had recently come home from an evening out and police suspect he may have been intoxicated. The man, who may have been involved in a previous dispute, punched his car’s passenger window after coming home, severing an artery in his arm and causing the significant blood loss. Sgt. Tyreman said that the man was extremely fortunate that Constable Tony Brooks, who has advanced medical training, was one of the officers who attended the scene. Cst. Brooks is currently involved in the RCMP’s Tactical Medical program.Sgt. Tyreman explained that Doctors advised the man would likely have bled to death were it not for the efforts of Cst. Brooks, who managed to pack the wound to close off the artery inside the man’s arm and stop the flow of blood.The man, whose identity has not been released, was airlifted to a Vancouver area hospital for treatment, after which doctors called the local detachment to find out how the injury had occurred. “The detachment received feedback from Vancouver Doctors who had inquired with the Doctor in charge of the Tactical Medical Program to applaud the incredible work done by Cst. Brooks, who literally saved this man’s life,’” said Sgt. Tyreman, who is currently acting as the Fort St John detachment’s commander.

Luxury cars Car Industry 1 2020 BMW 750Li xDrive: Big comfort with a big grille 2020 BMW 7 Series first drive: Travel comfortably and carry a big grille More From Roadshow 2019 BMW 330i xDrive review: The new and improved 3 Series 2019 BMW X7 first drive: Big-time Bavarian Comment Tags Share your voice Enlarge ImageThere is something special about a V12-powered luxury sedan that goes beyond just having four extra cylinders and we’re glad BMW is keeping the tradition alive. BMW I don’t care who you ask; when it comes to internal combustion engine layouts, the V12 is king. Unfortunately, for most automakers around the world, the king is dead — but not at BMW, at least for a few more years.According to a report published Wednesday by TopGear.com, BMW’s head of powertrain development, Michael Bayer said that the company’s current-generation turbocharged V12 would be around until at least 2023.The V12 engine is currently used to power the current 760i xDrive, and it’s pretty great. It makes a buttery-smooth 577 horsepower (down from 602, due to emissions changes) and 590 pound-feet of torque. It’s everything you’d want in a giant luxo-barge, and apparently, BMW’s customers agree. BMW is at maximum production on the V12. The V12 is having a tough time in general, thanks to the increasingly stringent fuel economy and emissions standards found in countries around the world. These tightening restrictions have caused even Mercedes-Benz — formerly the world’s foremost producer of V12 powerplants — to call it quits on the format, saying that the current generation of V12 AMG S600 and S65s would be its last.Don’t get me wrong; the current generation of Bimmer’s turbocharged V8s are incredible, available in just about everything with a six-figure price tag. These turbo-terrors produce V12-like power and torque with better emissions, weight and packaging, but the way they deliver power just isn’t the same.BMW didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.

Al Qaeda terrorists [Representational Image]ReutersAl-Qaeda has strong ties with Pakistan-based terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and the Haqqani Network, according to a new UN report. It also said that the deteriorating health of leader Aiman Muhammed al-Zawahiri has raised an alarm on the issue of succession. “Al-Qaeda remains resilient, although the health and longevity of its leader, Aiman Muhammed Rabi al-Zawahiri, and how the succession will work are in doubt,” said the Analytical Support and Sanctions Monitoring Team report. It was submitted to the UN Security Council Al-Qaeda Sanctions Committee. The report also said that the terror group considers Afghanistan as a “safe haven” and deeply relies on the strong relations with the Taliban. “Under Taliban patronage, Al-Qaeda is keen to strengthen its presence in Badakhshan Province, in particular in the Shighnan area bordering Tajikistan, as well as in Barmal, in Paktika Province”, the report said. According to a previous report on LeT and Islamic State working with Pakistani intelligence agency in Afghanistan, officials have claimed that the terrorist group’s presence in the region has risen over the years. “LeT’s presence in Afghanistan has been observed to be steadily on the rise. According to recent inputs, Hafiz Saeed’s son Talha Saeed is taking more interest in operational affairs in Afghanistan,” an intelligence official told Hindustan Times. ISIL and the Al-QaidaThe report also compared Al-Qaeda’s influence with the emerging presence of another terrorist group, Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL).The ISIL, who gained recognition for carrying out the Sri Lankan Sunday terror attack, was reported to strengthen its network in remote provinces using “a logical extension of the dispersed, delegated leadership approach.” Islamic State released a video of the terror squad responsible for the Easter Sunday massacre.”Better established affiliates are taking on elements of responsibility for lesser ones, channelling funds and assisting with propaganda. Over time, this may have the effect of regionalising the agendas of these networks,” it added.On the other hand, Al-Qaeda has a successfully established network through its engagement in local issues and politics. It noted that the largest concentration of active foreign terrorists in Idli and Afghanistan were largely aligned with the Al-Qaida. However, it is noted that the group has some issues in the Syrian city, Idlib. While the report says that the Al-Qaeda’s allies are stronger than their ISIL counterparts in Idlib, Syrian Arab Republic, Yemen, Somalia and a majority of West Africa, it said that ISIL is a much greater threat to global security.In terms of finances, media profile, current combat experience and terrorist expertise, the UN report noted that ISIL remains much stronger than Al-Qaeda.
Taliban founder Mullah Omar lived within walking distance of US bases in AfghaniMullah Omarstan for years, according to a new book that suggests embarrassing failures of American intelligence.US and Afghan leaders believed the one-eyed, fugitive leader fled to and eventually died in Pakistan, but a new biography says Omar was living just three miles from a major US Forward Operating Base in Zabul province, where he died in 2013.”Searching for an Enemy”, by Dutch journalist Bette Dam, says the Taliban chief lived as a virtual hermit, refusing visits from his family and filling notebooks with jottings in an imaginary language.Dam spent more than five years researching the book and interviewed Jabbar Omari, Omar’s bodyguard who hid and protected him after the Taliban regime was overthrown.The author spent years reporting in Afghanistan and also wrote an earlier book about former Afghan president Hamid Karzai.Following the 9/11 attacks in 2001 which led to the fall of the Taliban, the US put a $10 million bounty on Omar and he went into hiding in a small compound in the regional capital Qalat, Dam writes.The family living at the compound were not told of the identity of their mystery guest, but US forces twice almost found him.At one point, a US patrol approached as Omar and Omari were in the courtyard. Alarmed, the two men ducked behind a wood pile, but the soldiers passed without entering.A second time, US troops even searched the house but did not uncover the concealed entrance to his secret room.Omar decided to move when the US started building Forward Operating Base Lagman in 2004, just a few hundred metres from his hideout.He later moved to a second building but soon afterwards the Pentagon constructed Forward Operating Base Wolverine — home to 1,000 US troops, and where American and British special forces were sometimes based — close by.He dared not move again, Dam says, rarely even going outside and often hiding in tunnels when US planes flew over.Though he listened to the BBC’s evening Pashto-language news broadcasts, even when he learned about the death of al-Qaeda supremo Osama Bin Laden Omar rarely commented on the outside world, the book says.The book goes on to claim that Omar became ill in 2013, did not see a doctor and refused to travel to Pakistan for treatment, later dying in Zabul.- ‘Piles of evidence’ -The allegations sparked mixed reactions, with the Afghan government quick to deny the claims.”We strongly reject this delusional claim and we see it as an effort to create and build an identify for the Taliban and their foreign backers,” tweeted Haroon Chakhansuri — a spokesman for the Afghan presidency.”We have sufficient evidence which shows he lived and died in Pakistan. Period!”Former CIA director and US military commander in Afghanistan David Petraeus also appeared sceptical, saying the Taliban leader’s alleged decision to stay in Afghanistan would have been laden with risk.”We had access, as needed, to anywhere inside Afghanistan, and I would be very surprised if Mullah Omar would have taken the risk that we could come calling some evening,” said Petraeus according to the Wall Street Journal.”I have piles & piles of evidence which shows he lived & died in Pakistan,” added Amrullah Saleh, who was head of Afghan intelligence from 2004-2010.Afghan officials have repeatedly accused Pakistan of harbouring Taliban insurgents.Omar’s Taliban ruled Afghanistan from 1996 until 2001, and has waged an insurgency since then.Dam’s book says Omar delegated effective Taliban leadership after 2001 and appears to have acted as more of a spiritual leader after that. The militants kept his death secret for two years.The latest account of Omar’s life comes as the Taliban and US are holding ongoing peace talks aimed at bringing an end to the nearly 18-year conflict.The US and Taliban have remained tight-lipped about the most recent round of talks in Doha, which have been ongoing for two weeks, sparking expectations that they may be inching closer to a deal.
