Paris, Nov 9 (AFP) Arsenal booked a place in the Europa League knockout stage and extended their unbeaten run to 15 matches despite a 0-0 draw with Sporting Lisbon, while Olivier Giroud’s first goal of the season sent Chelsea through.But Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck, given a rare start just hours after being named in Gareth Southgate’s England squad, had to be stretchered down the tunnel with what looked a nasty ankle injury in the first half on Thursday.Arsenal midfielders Matteo Guendouzi and Aaron Ramsey were both visibly upset after Welbeck, who is out of contract at the end of the campaign, went down after jumping to win a header.”It is mentally challenging (playing after a teammate is injured) but sometimes it comes with the game, and Danny has had a lot of injuries,” winger Alex Iwobi told BT Sport.”We wish him the best and will keep on encouraging and motivating him to get back.”Unai Emery’s Gunners were the better side for long periods at the Emirates against a team who have already had three different managers this term, but were forced to settle for a point despite Sporting being reduced to 10 men late on when former Barcelona centre-back Jeremy Mathieu was sent off.But Arsenal did secure a last-32 spot regardless, as Vorskla Poltava lost 1-0 at home to Azeri outfit Qarabag in the other Group E game.- Giroud ends drought -=======================Chelsea made it four wins from four matches in Group L by edging out a spirited BATE Borisov 1-0 in Belarus.advertisementGiroud ended his 11-game goal drought this season by giving Chelsea a 53rd-minute lead, and the Premier League giants held on despite BATE striking the woodwork three times in the match.”I was hoping to score soon because I came back late from the World Cup and I was lacking maybe a bit of efficiency and luck but you always need to keep working hard and keep the faith and that’s what happened tonight,” France striker Giroud told BT Sport.The Londoners moved six points clear of Hungarians Vidi at the top of the group and have not tasted defeat in 17 matches since losing the Community Shield to Manchester City in August.- Gerrard finally beaten in Europe -====================================Steven Gerrard’s Rangers saw their 11-game unbeaten run in this year’s Europa League come to a dramatic end as they threw away the lead three times in a 4-3 defeat at Spartak Moscow.Both sides were the beneficiaries of comical own goals in a crazy first half which ended with Glenn Middleton putting the Scots 3-2 ahead, but Luiz Adriano and Sofiane Hanni both scored in the space of 71 seconds to snatch Spartak victory.Rangers are now level on points with Spartak in an incredibly tight Group G, one point behind leaders Villarreal after the Spaniards’ goalless draw with Rapid Vienna in Austria.”For me, football is about levels and, if you don’t defend properly and you don’t do the basics well enough, high-level players and high-level teams normally punish you and that was the case tonight,” Gerrard told the Rangers website.Reigning Scottish champions Celtic gave themselves a lifeline in Group B, as Odsonne Edouard’s 79th-minute strike saw them beat RB Leipzig 2-1 in their must-win clash at Parkhead.Salzburg, semi-finalists last season, qualified for the next round with a 5-2 thrashing of Rosenborg in the group’s other match, as Japanese forward Takumi Minamino scored a hat-trick.Elsewhere, Eintracht Frankfurt reached the last 32 with their fourth win from as many group games by beating Apollon Limassol 3-2 in Cyprus, while Lazio joined them in progressing from Group H as goals from Marco Parolo and Joaquin Correa secured a 2-1 win over Marseille to eliminate last season’s runners-up.AC Milan stayed just a point adrift of Group F leaders Real Betis after Suso’s second-half equaliser grabbed a 1-1 draw in Spain.Record five-time winners Sevilla needed a late penalty from Ever Banega to claim a 3-2 victory at Akhisar Belediyespor, after having a man sent off, losing a two-goal lead and seeing the Turks miss a spot-kick of their own.

Kolkata: A senior Australian minister is likely to meet Adani Group Chairman Gautam Adani during his trip to India beginning Monday. The meeting is expected to discuss Adani’s Rs 10,000 crore Carmichael coal project where Australian authorities will try to persuade the Indian investor to begin construction at the earliest. The 10 MTPA coal mine project in Queensland drew protests from environmentalists who are claiming that it will cut into the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area. “Australia’s Minister for Resources and Northern Australia Matthew Canavan will be meeting Adani during his three-day visit in India visit that begins on August 26,” an Australian diplomat said. He said the coal project had received all approvals of the state and Central government and now it is up to the Adanis.
After a sweeping immigration probe, two Charlottetown hoteliers have been charged with helping set up fake addresses for Chinese immigrants who entered Prince Edward Island under a business program that has been criticized for lax oversight.Siblings Ping Zhong and Yi Zhong allegedly counselled business immigrants seeking permanent residency to provide residential addresses in P.E.I. though they didn’t really live there, as required under the province’s immigration system.The Canada Border Services Agency says 566 immigrants used the same addresses between 2008 and 2015 — the siblings’ Sherwood Motel and Ping Zhong’s Charlottetown home. Nearly all were granted permanent residency.Seven cases were chosen for prosecution, said Colin Murchison, a CBSA director of investigations in an interview Tuesday.The CBSA charged Ping Zhong, 60, with three counts of aiding and abetting misrepresentation under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, and five counts against her 58-year-old brother.“That doesn’t mean that we wouldn’t ever lay other charges depending on what new evidence presents itself,” Murchison said in a telephone interview.Nine thick files of search warrants contain investigators’ descriptions of how they monitored the immigrants being picked up at the Charlottetown airport.One officer said she observed the would-be business immigrants from China spending about 10 minutes at the motel during a three-day visit to the Island capital.In some cases, they quickly were shuttled to the five-star Delta hotel to spend their nights on the Island, she wrote.She states: “I have reasonable grounds to believe that … the visit to the Sherwood Motel was to make arrangements for the forwarding of correspondence and cards that will be sent by Citizenship and Immigration Canada to the motel while they (the immigrants) return to China.”Ping Zhong, reached on her cellular telephone, declined comment, saying she had hired a defence lawyer. A receptionist at the hotel said Yi Zhong was travelling and unavailable for comment.The search warrant says that Ping Zhong came to the Island and became a permanent resident in 1991, and a citizen in 1995, while her brother Yi Zhong entered Canada in 2007 under the P.E.I. provincial nominee program, and has not obtained citizenship yet.Despite the alleged irregularities being noted by federal agents, the search warrants says 99 per cent of the people listing the hotel as their residency “were approved permanent residents under the PEI provincial nominee (PNP) program.”The provincial nominee program has already come under public scrutiny for a poor record of retaining immigrants on the Island, while the province has been reaping millions of dollars in forfeited deposits from the immigrants for failing to comply with conditions of the program.Under the program, applicants provide the Island government with a $200,000 deposit, and commit to invest $150,000 and manage a firm that incurs at least $75,000 in operating costs.They also commit to live on the Island while running the business, though they’re permitted to be out of the country for as much as half of the year while they operate the business.After the deal is signed, the province nominates the investor to the federal Immigration Department as a permanent resident.The province recently confirmed that two thirds of the PNP businesses in 2016-17, a total of 177 people, didn’t receive a refund for the business portion of their deposit, with the majority simply never opening a business.A spokesman for the province’s Office of Immigration wasn’t immediately available for comment.However, Chris Palmer, the minister of Economic Development, said in the legislature that only 17 of the people claiming to stay at the hotel were planning to reside in the province.“Those 583 were not applications to P.E.I. and we would have no knowledge of those coming to P.E.I. It was an address they used for an application going to a different province,” he said in the legislature.Murchison said there is the possibility of administrative actions, like the revocation of permanent residency status, being taken if CBSA’s regulatory branch determines there were breaches of the rules by the immigrants involved.Richard Kurland, an immigration lawyer who frequently comments on immigration policy, said the criminal case is being watched nationally and is raising alarm bells.Similar prosecutions in other provinces resulted in hundreds of administrative cases being opened, he said.“Even though seven criminal charges may be laid, administratively hundreds of cases can be opened to see about revoking (immigration) status,” he said in a telephone interview.“It’s very unpleasant for the families, very unpleasant for the province. It’s something that shouldn’t have happened,” he said.“It seems the province may have been a little lax in drilling down for the truth regarding the content of provincial nominee program applications,” he said.Kurland has argued that the federal immigration minister should have acted to reduce the quotas being permitted under the provincial nominee program until there was evidence the province had more vigorous enforcement of its own rules.The case will be prosecuted by a federal lawyer in Charlottetown provincial court; the maximum sentence is a fine of $100,000 and imprisonment of five years. There is no minimum sentence.Arraignment of the Zhongs is set for June 11.– Follow (at)mtuttoncporg on Twitter.
“More than the 19th Amendment the public wanted the 20th Amendment,” he said. He said that President Maithripala Sirisena, former President Chandrika Kumaratunga and former Prime Minister Sirimavo Bandaranaike, had all backed electoral reforms. Dissanayake also said that at the Parliament election the SLFP hopes to contest as an alliance with other political parties.Meanwhile, Minister Mahinda Amaraweera said that the four SLFP members who resigned from the Government, did not have a rift with the President or any SLFP members. The Sri Lanka Freedom Party (SLFP) today said that it is determined to implement the 20th Amendment to the constitution.SLFP MP S.B. Dissanayake said that the United National Party (UNP) is attempting to delay the 20th Amendment but the SLFP will push for it. Amaraweera said that the four Ministers even had talks with Dissanayake and others before they resigned from their Ministerial posts. (Colombo Gazette)
DETROIT — A government investigation has found that a design flaw in Tesla’s Autopilot semi-autonomous driving system and driver inattention combined to cause a Model S electric car to slam into a firetruck parked along a California freeway.The National Transportation Safety Board determined that the driver was overly reliant on the system and that Autopilot’s design let him disengage from driving.The agency released a brief report Wednesday that outlined the probable cause of the January 2018 crash on a highway in Culver City.The findings raise questions about the effectiveness of the Autopilot system, which was engaged but failed to take action in the Culver City crash and three others in which drivers were killed since 2016.No one was hurt in the Culver City crash involving a Model S Tesla.Tom Krisher, The Associated Press

Roelof Makken, an adjunct professor at the Goodman School of Business and a Brock alumnus, made a donation to the school for a Bloomberg lab to be installed. The lab launched officially Tuesday.Crude oil in the U.S. was hovering around $92 a barrel by late Tuesday morning.Gold was rallying and so was silver, but aluminum was slumping.As for what they were doing later in the day, a new Bloomberg lab at the Goodman School of Business would have been able to fill in curious students.The lab, which opened officially Tuesday, thanks to a donation from Roelof Makken, an adjunct professor and Brock Business alumnus, is home to eight Bloomberg terminals, enabling students to tap into the world markets in real time.The access to the latest in commodities, stocks, bonds and currency trading as it’s happening gives students experience they won’t find in any textbook, said Paul Scarbrough, associate professor of accounting.“Every time you hear of stock traders, they’re in front of this,” Scarbrough said, pointing to a terminal with its colourful keyboard and two monitors emblazoned with the Bloomberg logo.“This is the technology that 100 per cent of traders use. Without this skill, you’re not a trader. I’d like to see every Goodman School student at this. It’s hard to understand how the stock market works unless you’re involved at this level.”That was the impetus behind making the lab a reality, explained Makken, who came from Europe to study finance and economics at Brock in 1981.The eight additional terminals, which complement the two available to all students in the James A. Gibson Library and another dedicated to Goodman graduate students, adds to the experiential learning opportunities at Brock, he said.The new Bloomberg lab at the Goodman School of Business.Though the lab is small, it’s a much more realistic setting for the trading that happens today, he added. The days of screaming stockbrokers on the floor of stock exchanges around the world isn’t the reality anymore but dealing rooms in smaller investment offices, which the lab mimics, are.“If students can demonstrate they can use this technology, it makes them better prepared for the job markets,” Makken said. “This is really the only platform to get relevant, up-to-date data.”Graduates are often tested on their ability to use the system during job interviews, Scarbrough noted.In addition to data, analytics and market information, the lab connects students to the Bloomberg job board. Aspiring scribes can even write stories and submit them to the Bloomberg news service.Students who come up with a better model for doing things on the Bloomberg system can even submit their ideas with ease, Makken added.“You can really be part of the Bloomberg community,” he said.Don Cyr, Goodman School of Business Dean, called the lab, which has already clocked more than 850 hours of use by more than 150 students, a significant tool for teaching and research.“We’re very, very grateful for Mr. Makken’s support,” Cyr said.
If you smoke, then you’re probably used to carrying around one of those cheap lighters you can’t refill in your pocket. When they are empty, you just throw them away and buy a new one.Well, don’t throw the next couple of empty ones away, as someone has found a better use for them. If you have the time and the inclination it’s possible to turn them into a mini model motorcycle. It sounds crazy, but Joe Dusk’s Imgur page gives us photographic proof that it doesn’t just work, the finished motorcycle looks fantastic.Each lighter has 14 parts. You don’t need all of those for the motorcycle, but you do require two of some parts for certain areas of the motorcycle. For example, two plastic lids are required to form the main body, and two short springs are required for the handlebars.Below are a couple of images of the finished motorcycle which I’m sure you’ll agree is well worth the effort of constructing: I would love to know who looked at a lighter and thought this was possible. Maybe it took quite a bit of experimenting, or maybe they just has an epiphany moment and started dismantling. However it happened, this is pure genius and also classes as a form of recycling.How long before these lightercycles turn up on Etsy?Check out the full gallery of images over at Joe Dusk’s Imgur page, via Boing Boing
‘He’s been going through a lot and you have to accept the decision he has made’ Ryan McHugh on Odhran MacNiallais’s decision not to play with Donegal this season.

Short URL Subscribe May 13th 2019, 5:59 PM Monday 13 May 2019, 9:30 PM RYAN MCHUGH SAYS he understands Odhran MacNiallais’s decision not to link up with the Donegal panel this summer. MacNiallais helped Declan Bonner’s side lift the Ulster title in 2018 but following Gaoth Dobhair’s run to the All-Ireland club semi-final earlier this year he announced his decision to take some time off from football. The 26-year-old’s close friend Micheál Roarty was one of four men who died in a Donegal road accident in January, a tragedy which deeply affected MacNiallais.“I’m personally extremely close with Odhran as loads of boys in the Donegal set-up are,” said McHugh. “You have to respect his decision.“From a Donegal point of view we’d love to have Odhran playing for Donegal all the time but you have to respect his decision as a team-mate and as a friend.“As you touched on, there was a huge tragedy in Falcarragh and Gweedore. Unless you were really involved in it you wouldn’t have realised how much of a tragedy it was. “And Odhran was extremely close to Micheál Roarty, they were best friends, so he’s been going through a lot and you have to accept the decision he has made. Hopefully in the near future we’ll have him back.”It’s the second time in three seasons Donegal have to plan without the services of the 2014 All-Star nominee. Odhran MacNiallais during a 2016 league game for Donegal. Source: Presseye/Lorcan Doherty/INPHOOn a bright note, Paddy McBrearty has made a successful comeback from the torn ACL he suffered last season. As club-mates, McHugh witnessed McBrearty’s return to form with Kilcar in recent weeks.“He’s doing great since he got back playing. He’s played four matches for the club and back flying. He kicked 11 points one day. “He’s trying to get that wee bit of match sharpness back for himself. Paddy’s an extremely disciplined person and he does everything to the letter of the law.“He’s done his rehab extremely well and he’s back and scoring well. Hopefully, he can get back to as good as he was for Donegal in the championship. “He’s a top, top player. I think before he picked up the injury last year in the Ulster Final he was, if not the best, then in the top three forwards in Ireland the way he was playing at the time. “Unfortunately he picked up an injury and, when you look back on the year last year, at the time you’re trying to say to yourself that it’s not that big of a deal and you try to stay on the positive side. “But looking back on the year as a whole I think it was a huge turning point in Donegal’s year when Paddy picked up that injury. He was playing so well and probably leading the attack and leading it extremely well for us. “Kicking six, seven, eight points a game which is huge. Looking back now, it was definitely a huge turning point in Donegal’s year.” Subscribe to our new podcast, The42 Rugby Weekly, here: 5 Comments Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article
Découverte d’une statue géante du Dieu Thot vieille de 3.000 ansÉgypte – Une équipe d’égyptologues a découvert une statue du dieu de la sagesse Thot. Haute de quatre mètres, cette sculpture monumentale a été exhumée dans un temple mortuaire à Louxor, dans la vallée des Rois.La statue, représentant le dieu Thot sous la forme d’un babouin, serait vieille de plus de 3.000 ans. Elle a été retrouvée en quatre morceaux alors que des travaux étaient menés dans le but d’abaisser le niveau des eaux de Louxor pour ne pas inonder les temples de la ville.Thot était considéré comme le dieu de la parole créatrice, de l’écriture et du calcul. Il possédait un savoir illimité et incarnait l’intelligence et la parole dans l’Égypte ancienne. La statue date de la XVIIIe dynastie, qui a duré de 1550 à 1290 avant J.-C. Deux autres statues ont également été découvertes : celle (fragmentaire) du pharaon Amenhotep III, grand-père de Toutankhamon, ainsi qu’une statue en granit de Ramsès III, pharaon ayant régné de 1186 à 1154 avant J.C.Le 19 mars 2010 à 17:29 • Emmanuel Perrin
Un cinquième de Bangkok aujourd’hui noyé par les eauxJeudi, la municipalité de Bangkok a annoncé qu’un cinquième de la ville était désormais inondé, principalement dans le nord et l’ouest. En revanche, le centre de la capitale est toujours au sec. Depuis la fin du mois de juillet, la Thaïlande connaît les pires inondations de son histoire. Mais loin de se tarir aujourd’hui, les eaux continuent de noyer les villes et ont désormais atteint un cinquième de la capitale de Bangkok qui abrite quelque 12 millions habitants. Selon la municipalités, les inondations concernent surtout le nord et l’ouest de la ville. “En terme de superficie, il y a environ 20% d’inondés”, a indiqué son porte-parole Jate Sopitpongstorn à l’AFP avant de rajouter : “Mais personne ne sait le nombre de personnes touchées”.À lire aussiCes inondations et crues qui ont marqué l’Histoire de la FranceLes autorités ont ainsi demandé l’évacuation totale de huit districts, sur les cinquante que compte la mégalopole et l’évacuation partielle de quatre autres. Mais beaucoup d’habitants ont choisi de rester chez eux, malgré les dangers notamment de maladies liées à l’eau et d’électrocution et les difficultés d’approvisionnement en nourriture et eau potable, rapporte l’AFP. D’après Jate Sopitpongstorn, près de 11.000 évacués vivent provisoirement dans des centres d’hébergement. Mais si plusieurs districts de la ville sont inondés, le centre lui a toujours les pieds au sec comme l’ont voulu les autorités qui tentent d’épargner le centre d’affaires et financier de Bangkok. Une mesure qui provoque la colère de certains habitants des quartiers les plus touchés, où l’eau peut dépasser un mètre par endroit, qui estiment avoir été sacrifiés. A ce jour, les inondations ont fait 437 morts en trois mois et touché des millions d’autres. Le 3 novembre 2011 à 20:37 • Maxime Lambert

Gennaro Gattuso has compared Milan new boy Krzysztof Piatek to Danish legend Jon Dahl Tomasson.Piatek who recently joined Milan from Genoa played in the barren draw against Napoli and his manager has seen enough to liken him to former teammate Tomasson.Tomasson was not a regular starter at Milan but scored 35 goals in three seasons, winning a Champions League and earning praise for his battling qualities.“We have to pick up from where we left off in the first 50 minutes, showing the same character,” Gattuso told Milan TV and Cited on Football Italia ahead of his side’s Coppa Italia quarter-final against Napoli on Tuesday.“We stopped dribbling in the last 30 minutes and were stretched, so all of Napoli’s qualities came out.“We must have the desire to play and show our faces, dribbling well. We need experience. We’re a young team and we need games like these.“For us to get back to being competitive, we need consistency in our performances, game and mentality.Piatek is ready to make his debut as a starter with the AC Milan shirt tomorrow night in the Coppa Italia quarter-finals against Napoli once again. Gennaro Gattuso is seriously thinking about it and a final decision will be made between tonight and tomorrow morning. pic.twitter.com/yu9JpVotxtSerie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….— AC Milan Africa (@africa_milan) January 28, 2019“We’ve shown it at times, but we still have too many ups and downs. Piatek reminds me of Tomasson. He had some very specific characteristics.“Jon never spared himself in training and gave us a huge hand, also when he played from the start.“Piatek has just joined, but I like him already. He’s a curious lad who looks at photos at Milanello: he likes to observe, talk and experience the structure here first hand.“It’s something beautiful. Will he start tomorrow? Him or Cutrone will play. Caldara and Biglia yesterday did some light work with us yesterday.“They’re working to improve their physical level and I think they’ll be available in a week.“We’re very happy with them, they have great desire to return and have shown it through the commitment they’ve been putting in.”

The CBI team left the premises after confirming that he was not present at the address, they said. The team, which had some superintendent of police-rank officials, did not make clear if they had gone to his residence to arrest him for alleged irregularities in foreign investment clearance to INX media during his tenure as the Union finance minister. A team of officials returned to Chidambaram’s residence 115-A Jor Bagh and pasted a notice asking him to appear before R Parthasarthy, CBI Dy SP, probing the case. Such summons is normally issued under Section 161 of the CrPC. However, the notice pasted at his residence did not mention the specific provision. Chidambaram is likely to seek protection from the arrest from the Supreme Court. The Delhi High Court had on Tuesday refused to grant any protection to Chidambaram from arrest by the CBI and the Enforcement Directorate. He had failed to get an audience from Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi on Tuesday for urgent hearing of his appeal in the Supreme Court against the Delhi High Court order dismissing his anticipatory bail plea. A team of lawyers led by senior advocate and Chidambaram’s party colleague Kapil Sibal was told by the registrar (judicial) to mention the petition Wednesday morning in the apex court. The CBI had registered an FIR on May 15, 2017, alleging irregularities in the Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance granted to the media group for receiving overseas funds of Rs 305 crore in 2007 during Chidambaram’s tenure as the finance minister. Thereafter, the ED lodged a money laundering case in this regard in 2018.
How long can Riverdale keep inventing new ways for a town to go completely insane without losing credibility? It’s probably the best trick the show has in its repertoire. It’s just self-aware enough that we end up giving it way more slack than we would any other show. In another series, a town hall meeting in support of disenfranchising an entire half of town while a teenage rumble rages outside would be a shark-jumping moment. On Riverdale, it’s a Wednesday.Despite nearly everyone being on board with the Red Circle last week, it appears Archie’s video message was a step too far. It really shouldn’t take a video of shirtless boys in hoods to convince people that a teen militia is a bad idea, but here we are. Even Principal Weatherbee, who was 100 percent behind the Red Circle before, tells Archie to knock it off or there’s no football team. Archie can’t even make the video go away anymore. When his dad tells him to take down his post, he says he already did. But the video’s gone viral now. You can’t stop the internet fame train once it gets rolling. Riverdale continues to demonstrate that it’s figured out how to handle Archie’s character. It even gives him a much more serious, darker arc and makes it work.KJ Apa as Archie Andrews (Photo: Katie Yu/The CW)The whole Red Circle thing is ridiculous until it suddenly isn’t. The show gave us time to laugh at the absurdity of the situation, before diving into how truly messed up it is. That’s where the show’s self-awareness works to its advantage. Everyone involved knows this whole thing is insane, but then the show is like, “no seriously, Archie needs help.” He reveals that the reason he didn’t wear a hood was to bait the Black Hood killer. Archie wants to be the one to kill him, and he doesn’t care if he makes it out alive or not. He buys ammo for his gun, a Kevlar vest and starts patrolling the south side, because clearly that’s where the killer is from, right? Archie is seriously messed up and Veronica doesn’t realize it at first. That’s the other cool character twist Riverdale is pulling off this season. While all her peers are dealing with truly dark stuff, she’s very much a teenager in over her head. When her boyfriend starts a teen militia, she gets cute t-shirts printed up because that’s how teenagers support things.Of course, it’s not like she doesn’t have her own strange problems to deal with. Whatever civil war is brewing in the town, there’s an equally dangerous one happening in her own house. One of the few smart things Archie does in this episode is tell Veronica exactly what her dad told him to inspire the Red Circle. She knows it’s exactly the kind of move her dad would make, and her suspicions are all but confirmed when her dad claims not to remember what he and Archie talked about. Hermione stops being completely evil for one second to give her daughter some decent advice this episode. While she admits she’s loyal to Hiram, she cautions Veronica against blind loyalty. She’s still completely down with Hiram’s plan to sow chaos in Riverdale to amass power (seriously, is Hiram Lodge the Riverdale version of Petyr Baelish?), but she’s not stupid. Veronica, to her credit, takes her mother’s advice and finally tells Archie what we’ve all been screaming at our TVs all episode. She’s glad he’s not stupid enough to keep a gun in his locker, but having one at all is still an incredibly dumb move.Marisol Nichols as Hermione Lodge (Photo: Katie Yu/The CW)All of this serves to set up for the literal class war that ends the episode. The rest of the football team forgives Archie just in time for the serpents to show up demanding a fight. See, the Serpents think the Black Hood is targeting northsiders. They see him as a hero, even though that really doesn’t track with what little we (and the whole town should) know about the killer at this point. They decide to beat up the redhead kid that made the video. Right after the football team shows up at Archie’s house with pizza, the Serpents show up looking for a fight. What follows is a full-on West Side Story rumble only with no dancing and slightly less stabbing. Veronica is still the smartest person on screen, though. She uses Archie’s gun to stop the fight and bring Archie to his senses. They throw the gun into Sweetwater river, which will hopefully bring an end to the most very-special-episode aspect of the season so far. As well done as Archie’s storyline is, giving him a gun just feels wrong.The teens aren’t the only ones engaging in class war, of course. At a town hall meeting addressing the hooded serial killer, Alice Cooper immediately blames the south side of town. Because she’s the worst. Her solution? Close down Southside High and use the money to hire more cops. Seriously. She wants to deprive poor people of education and hire policemen to lock them up. Lots of TV shows are finding ways to address the rise of fascism in the United States. Only Riverdale has one of its main characters’ parents literally suggest turning poor neighborhoods into police states. It’s the kind of bluntness that only this show can pull off.Cole Sprouse as Jughead Jones, Lili Reinhart as Betty Cooper, and Casey Cott as Kevin Keller (Photo: Bettina Strauss/The CW)They’re all wrong, of course. If you look at the evidence, which no adult in Riverdale does because why would they, the killer is probably a northsider. To be fair, Betty does keep a pretty big clue from her mom, but can you blame her? Her mother hasn’t exactly proven she’s capable of handling sensitive information. We learn that the killer is targeting people because of Betty’s speech at the end of last season. Given who was in attendance at that speech, the killer probably lives on the North Side. And it’s most likely someone Betty knows. The puzzle he includes with the letter this time can only be solved with Betty’s favorite Nancy Drew codemaking book from when she was a kid. (You’d think the fact that it came from a children’s book would make it pretty easy for just about anyone to crack, but it seems Nancy Drew didn’t mess around.) The killer knows some suspiciously specific details about Betty’s life. Could it be her father? He does have the right body type, and the pieces seem to fit together. He wouldn’t be the first Riverdale dad to go completely psycho on some teenagers either. We’ll have to see how the rest of the season plays out, but I’m thinking it’ll be a little more complicated than that. Riverdale almost certainly has a few more twists coming for us.Last night’s Riverdale not only maintained its momentum from last week, but it also added to it. It took the ridiculous idea of a teen militia to a logical and surprisingly sincere extreme. It’s always a risk when this show tries to get too serious with Archie’s story, but this time it absolutely paid off. I only wish we got to spend a bit more time on Betty and Jughead. They got a couple of short scenes together and didn’t even get to talk about Jughead hanging out with the serpents before the serial killer story took over. As fun as Riverdale’s crazy pace is, it can cause the quieter character stories to get lost. It looks like they won’t have much time to talk about it next week either. At the end of this episode, Betty gets a phone call from the killer. Yeah, relationship drama will have to take a backseat to that.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

During the French Revolution and later the Napoleonic Wars, the aristocracy of France was decimated and their role in French society was left in a vacuum ― royal sympathizers, nobles, military officers, clergy, and other aristocrats either fled or faced the guillotine. On the other hand, the revolution enabled many members of the bourgeoisie to rise through ranks and take on functions previously reserved for people of noble descent. It was a time of great turmoil, in which a new ruthless meritocracy made way for those who dared.“The Storming of the Bastille” – visible in the center is the arrest of Bernard René Jourdan, m de Launay (1740-1789).As Napoleon began his conquest of Europe, a number of non-commissioned officers managed to rise through the ranks and reach lofty positions, some of them even receiving the distinction of being Marshals of France.One such story even led a man to become the King of Sweden and form a dynasty which currently rules this Scandinavian monarchy. His name ― at least before he became royalty ― was Jean Bernadotte.Charles XIV John of Sweden & Charles III John of Norway.Bernadotte was born in Pau, in the south of France, to a middle-class family. After a period of education and apprenticeship as an assistant for a local attorney, Jean joined the military in 1780. By the time the revolution came knocking in 1789, he held the rank of sergeant.What followed was a quick rise through the military hierarchy during the wars which shook France immediately after the revolution and gave birth to its future Emperor: Napoleon Bonaparte.In 1794, Bernadotte was promoted to divisional general after his division under General Jean-Baptiste Jourdan defeated the coalition of four European powers at Fleurus, during the Flanders campaign.Napoleon Bonaparte, aged 23, lieutenant-colonel of a battalion of Corsican Republican volunteers. Portrait by Henri Félix Emmanuel Philippoteaux.Now commanding a contingent of troops he once again earned praise and promotion during the Battle of Theiningen in 1796 and joined the conquest in Italy during the following year. During this time Bernadotte met with Napoleon who rewarded him with yet another promotion ― the former private in the French Royal Army was now appointed commander of an entire division.Still, despite Napoleon’s great success in Europe, France was governed by a special five-man committee called the Directory. In order to seize power, Napoleon had to conduct a coup d’etat, which was exactly what he did in 1799.Bernadotte’s birth house in Pau, France.In the meantime, Jean Bernadotte became a significant player in the constellation of newly-formed figures of influence. He married the sister-in-law of Napoleon’s older brother, Joseph, which elevated him further into the elite.At the time of the proclamation of the French Empire in 1804, Bernadotte was among Napoleon’s most trusted officers and was named one of the original eighteen Marshals of the Empire. But apart from being a clever socialite, this cunning Frenchman continued to amaze his leader on the battlefield. His contributions to Napoleon’s victory at Austerlitz earned him a noble title of Prince of Pontecorvo province in Italy.Bernadotte, as Marshal of the French Empire.What followed was a series of almost mythical triumphs by Bernadotte on the field of battle. On one occasion, after capturing defeated Swedish troops at Lübeck, the Marshall let them go home. This gesture earned him praise in Sweden ― like an omen for things to come.Following the turmoil brought about by the French Revolution, Sweden and Russia entered a short conflict regarding Finland in 1808, which was at that time under Swedish rule. The result was the formation of the Grand Duchy of Finland, under the patronage of the Russian Empire.Statue in Norrköping erected in 1846. Photo byThuresson CC BY-SA 2.0The defeat caused outrage in Sweden, and King Gustav IV Adolf was deposed by his uncle, Charles XIII. However, the new king suffered from premature senility and a lack of heirs. One of his children was stillborn, while the other died within the first week of his life. Thus, the Swedish parliament ― Riksdag of the Estates ― took matters into their own hands.8 Words you will NEVER hear the Royal Family sayThey appointed Christian August of Augustenborg, Prince of Denmark, as their presumptive heir to the throne. However, only one year after being appointed, the Prince suffered a stroke from which he never recovered.Meanwhile, the Napoleonic conquest had left Europe shaken. The Emperor appointed his brothers and trusted generals as heads of client kingdoms across Europe in an attempt to unify the continent under his rule.Charles John, born Jean Bernadotte, King of Sweden and Norway 1818-1844. Portrait by Fredric Westin.The Swedish Parliament agreed on letting Napoleon suggest someone suitable to take up the role of king of Sweden. This was how Jean Bernadotte, an attorney’s assistant and a professional soldier, entered the royal Scandinavian bloodline.The Prince of Pontecorvo adopted a new name ― Charles XIV John of Sweden.The coronation of Charles XIV John as king of Norway performed in the Nidaros Cathedral of Trondheim in 1818.He de facto ruled the country as regent from 1810 to 1818, during which time the old king Charles was still nominally in power. After his death in 1818, Bernadotte became the King of Sweden and the King of Norway, as the two countries were in a form of a union at the time.He would hold on to this title until his death in 1844, after 26 years of peaceful reign.Bernadotte FamilyThe new king proved more than capable of balancing his power within the restraints held by the Parliament. His rule in the post-Napoleonic period is characterized by a wise decision to maintain good relations with the Great Powers such as England and Russia while ending the traditional expansionist policy that had often led Sweden into costly wars and disastrous defeats.Bernadotte’s approach concerning the foreign policy of the country is today considered as being the forerunner of Sweden’s neutrality, while his domestic policy focused on economy and investments, providing a period of great prosperity for the nation.Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden in 2017.In addition, being a former soldier earned him great respect from influential figures within the army who admired his peacemaking skills and readiness for war.Read another story from us: Grace Kelly’s family had to pay Prince Rainier III of Monaco a dowry of $2 million for their marriage to happenThe House of Bernadotte continues to be the ruling dynasty in Sweden to this day, with the current king, Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden, being a descendant of the famous Marshal of France, Jean Bernadotte.Nikola Budanovic is a freelance journalist who has worked for various media outlets such as Vice, War History Online, The Vintage News, and Taste of Cinema.

Tom Hiddelston, Bradley Cooper, or Robert Downey Jr.?,’ the interviewer asked.To which Holland replied: ‘I think Downey would win at Drag Race because he has the fastest cars.’An amused Cumberbatch quickly corrected his young co-star: ‘Aaaah…it’s not that kind of Drag Race.’‘RuPaul, man,’ Cumberbatch said to Holland.Holland took a second and then exclaimed: ‘oh yes, I do know what that is!’But it was too late, he demonstrated he was not up to date with his ‘herstory’.Cumberbatch eventually answered the question saying Tom Hiddleston would because ‘she can dress up pretty mighty fine’. It’s a pretty good response given Hiddleston’s character Loki, is canonically considered genderfluid.Holland was on Lip Sync BattleMany people on Twitter pointed out that Holland should probably know more about Drag Race considering he appeared on Lip Sync Battle, dressed as Rihanna.RuPaul himself famously accused Lip Sync Battle of ‘ripping off’ Drag Race.‘Regular, straight pop culture has liberally lifted things from gay culture as long as I can remember,’ he said in 2016.‘It’s a poor rip off of our show. That’s fine, because guess what? We have so much more where that comes from. Take it!’But we have to hand it to Holland, he might not know his herstory, but he certainly can pull off a mean lip sync.Watch his Singing in the Rain/Umbrella mash-up here:[embedded content]Got a news tip?
