There’s a wonderful chance Wednesday evening for West Alabama residents who want to say “thank you” to veterans from our area.Another Honor Flight is taking off early that morning, taking veterans from World War II, Korea and Vietnam to our nation’s capital. While they’re in Washington, the men and women on the flight will visit the memorials built in honor of those who served and died for the U.S.But organizers want their return that evening as momentous as the trip itself, and want supporters to come out to the Tuscaloosa Regional Airport around 7:30 so they can be there for the veterans’ arrival around 8 p.m.
There is a new, creepy-crawly exhibit at the Mildred Westervelt Warner Transportation Museum.The Bama Bugs exhibit is full of photos and preserved insects that can be found in the Tuscaloosa area.Photographers John and Kendra Abbott have their work highlighted throughout the museum.The exhibit is free. It will be open until August 17.
NAPLES, Italy — Atalanta came from behind to beat second-place Napoli 2-1 on Monday and firmly put itself into contention for Serie A’s last Champions League spot.Adding another chapter to a career-best season, Duvan Zapata scored one goal and set up another to hand Napoli only its second home loss in the Italian league.Atalanta moved level on points with AC Milan, which holds fourth place on head-to-head record.The top four finishers enter the Champions League group phase.Napoli’s coach Carlo Ancelotti looks on prior to the start of the Italian Serie A soccer match between Napoli and Atalanta at the San Paolo stadium in Naples, Italy, Monday, April 22, 2019. (Cesare Abbate/ANSA via AP)Napoli remains second but is six points ahead of Inter Milan with five games remaining. Carlo Ancelotti’s club has won only one of its last four Serie A matches and was eliminated by Arsenal in the Europa League quarterfinals last week.Atalanta’s 66 goals are second only to the 67 scored by Italian champion Juventus.However, it took the visitors some time to find their aim following a first half marked by a heavy downpour at the San Paolo stadium.Mario Pasalic scored the winner in the 80th with an angled shot after being set up by a back-heel pass from Zapata.Zapata had equalized in the 69th by tapping in a cross after finally breaking free from center back Kalidou Koulibaly.The former Napoli player’s 21 goals ties AC Milan’s Krzysztof Piatek for second in the league, one behind Fabio Quagliarella of Sampdoria.Dries Mertens had given Napoli a first-half lead with a back-heel that deflected first off a defender and then his own backside before going in.Napoli looked set to go 2-0 up when Arkadiusz Milik chipped over the goalkeeper, but Atalanta defender Andrea Masiello cleared the ball at the very last moment. Goal-line technology showed most of the ball — but not all of it — had crossed the line.Lorenzo Insigne, who had very recently been considered Napoli’s top striker, never left the bench amid a reported feud with Ancelotti.Atalanta is also still in the Italian Cup semifinals, where it hosts Fiorentina in the second leg on Thursday following a 3-3 opening draw.TweetPinShare0 Shares

790 N. Milwaukee St.Last updated on July 1st, 2019 at 11:45 amNational coworking space operator Novel Coworking has acquired the building at 790 N. Milwaukee St., where it plans to open a coworking space this fall.Based in Chicago, Novel has 32 coworking locations around the country. The Milwaukee coworking spot, near Cathedral Square, would be the company’s second Wisconsin location. It has a Madison office at 345 W. Washington Ave. that is set to open in June.An LLC affiliated with Novel paid $3.2 million for the property, which it purchased from Kennedy II Associates LP, according to state real estate records. The transaction took place April 30. The building, constructed in 1986, is assessed at $2.8 million. It is 69,891 square feet.Novel plans to renovate the space with infrastructure improvements and custom suites, and lease all six floors of the building in a mix of private offices, “SmartSuites” and coworking memberships, Novel said in a press release. SmartSuites have both private offices and collaborative spaces, and are outfitted with tech upgrades such as an Alexa-enabled sound system and a biometric keypad entry system.At its coworking spaces, Novel provides members with 24/7 building access, direct fiber internet, an espresso bar, local beer on tap and community events.

Monica Collins is a writer who lives on the Waterfront with her husband, Ben Alper, and dog, Dexter. At the end of our journey, Cory Bamberg — an utter stranger whom I plucked off the internet merely because I was charmed by the name of her company — had gone though all my underwear, literally and figuratively. She had arranged my garments by color. What clothes I didn’t keep, she packed up in bags for donation to On the Rise, a women’s day shelter in Cambridge. She helped me prune my library. The “nay” pile was donated to More Than Words, a Boston non-profit that collects books for urban youth to manage and sell. All the discarded furniture went to Household Goods, an Acton enterprise giving home furnishings to people starting over after homelessness, a fire, or another misfortune. In these times when chaos rules politically, many of us seek to control what we can. Keeping our square feet in order has assumed more importance in daily lives. So we follow those leaders exhorting us to spiff up our personal spaces. The lead actor in this movement is a wafer-thin Japanese guru, with the unlikely moniker of Marie Kondo. She has become a household god, spreading the gospel of folding clothes precisely and making the bed daily. Downtown JournalAn occasional column about city life The New Year is now three weeks old. Are you tidied yet? Or still bound up with resolutions to tidy? For a few enchanted weeks, I had my own Marie Kondo, only she was named Cory and lived in the Seaport. This professional organizer is a millennial who had a corporate job until she became disenchanted working for The Man. She took a chance to start her own business. She calls it Ditch the Clutter. And ditch we did. Kondo recommends keeping only 30 books. She shows how to fold all your underthings and T-shirts precisely in little squares and stack them sideways in drawers so you can easily see the colors and textures. In the kitchen, she makes drawers organized by herding together similarly-sized utensils. She uses bamboo dividers to keep the spaces well-ordered. Bamberg recommended movers to transport me and my husband from our home in the suburbs to our condo in the city. She stayed around on moving day to unpack and to collect every empty box. She helped hang pictures. She set up the kitchen. She flew around on gossamer wings (just kidding). But she really was magic – transformative. I haven’t seen Cory Bamberg in two years. Yet, I recently received an email from Ditch the Clutter with a complimentary “document storage cheat sheet” to keep my papers in order. I was happy for the shout-out, but so relieved I didn’t need the help. She offers up lots of interesting advice. Alas, it’s tough to live tidy in a world straining with stuff. The Friends’ story will, of course, have a happy ending, but not before Marie Kondo has worked her particular alchemy of cleaning up. She does have her methods. Most distinctly, she directs her subjects to go through their possessions thoughtfully, holding each item and meditating on it while deciding whether to heave it or keep it. She wants people to thank the castaways and embrace the holdovers. She urges her legions of clutter-snipes to stay mindful of things that make them happy – or not. Oh. OK. You want me just to shut up and go away. You don’t want to be reminded of that determination to pare down, clean up, throw out and wrangle your clothes, dishes, books and papers to stay organized in 2019. You live in the North End, a small space already crammed with too much clutter. You yearn to live without guilt about the mess. Kondo established her brand as Ms. Clean with the release of her worldwide 2012 bestseller, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing. Now, she has a TV series on Netflix, “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo.” In the show, she travels with an interpreter to various messy homes desperately in need of an action plan. The first episode shows Kondo visiting the Friends (their family surname) in California where she discovers a household on the brink. Everybody’s a mess. The clothes closets brim over, the kitchen is a stew of misplaced cutlery and dirty plates, the kids are brats, and the parents are estranged. Their lifestyle muddle has become like kudzu, a massive vine slowly encircling them and choking them. Good luck with that. *Advertisement*

In Cebu City, officials of barangay Tejero led by reelected captain Jesselou Cadungog were sworn into office yesterday by Mayor Michael Rama.Cadungog, a vocal critic of the mayor, said that since the election is over, the time has come for them to cooperate with the mayor and make sure that their projects get City Hall support.After the oath-taking ceremony, Cadungog immediately reminded Rama of his need to approve the P3 million rehabilitation project for Gaisano Street located near their barangay hall.“Naa pa sa imong la mesa. Wala pa na nimo napirmahan,” Cadungog told Rama. (It’s on your desk, you have not signed it yet.)“ Hain man? If for the good of the people ato gyud na pirmahan,” was Rama’s reply. (Where is it? If it’s for the good of the people I will surely sign it.)Cadungog and his councilors initially took their oaths of office before Cebu City north district Representative Raul del Mar in a ceremony organized by the Bando Osmeña-Pundok Kauswagan party last Nov. 10.The Tejero officials were invited to the mass oathtaking which was organized by the Office of the Mayor in Nov. 11 but they did not show up.Before the swearing in rites started, Cadungog sent a text message to former mayor Tomas Osmeña, the titular head of the BO-PK, and told him about their appearance at City Hall as a courtesy to their political leader.In Mandaue City, Mayor Jonas Cortes administered the oaths of office to 27 barangay captains and 189 barangay councilmen at the Mandaue City Sports Complex last night. A total of 16 barangay captains were given a renewed mandate while 11 will be starting their new terms.In his speech Mayor Cortes urged the barangay officials to start their tasks in serving the people with their respective commitments. “I know that you are more than capable of making sure that your constituents are justified with their choice of leaders,” he said. Cortes called on the community politicians to forget their conflicts and start to serve the people. “Always remember that what was handed to you by the people is not the position of power. It is a mandate to serve. It was not a privilege of the few but rather than it is a privilege to serve the many,” he said. / with Chief of Reporters Doris Bongcac and Reporter Jucell Marie Cuyos Oscar Banzon, a priest who was suspended by the local Catholic archdiocese for running in the last elections, was among the newly-elected barangay captains who took their oaths of office.Banzon, who won as chairman of barangay Kawit in Medellin town, took his oath before Gov. Hilario Davide III with Vice Gov. Agnes Magpale as principal witness.

Robert Whittaker hails ‘Wonderboy’ the best ‘outside fighter’ in MMA Bloody Elbow ProMax 440 BJJ GI Standard BJJ Gi White: McGregor didn’t like my comments about Masvidal being ‘too big’ for him Gloves Which is More Dangerous – MMA or Football? A lot has happened in the world of Mixed Martial Arts since PRIDE’s longtime heavyweight champion, Fedor Emelianenko, retired in 2012 after a first round knockout victory over former UFC champion Pedro Rizzo.The final stanza of Emelianenko’s career was bittersweet – while “The Last Emperor” wrapped his career up with 3 straight victories, they were preceded with 3 quick loses to Fabricio Werdum, Antonio Silva and Dan Henderson. Since those 3 losses, two of Fedor’s opponents have faced PED controversies. Henderson was an advocate for and user of the now banned Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) and Antonio Silva has failed a drug test due to ‘elevated testosterone’.Speaking to MMAFighting.com at a press conference in New York City, Emelianenko stated that he feels people who are caught taking PEDs should face tougher punishment:”I feel that they should increase the punishment or control what’s happening,” he said. “There’s definitely more room for control over it. I feel betrayed by those who actually enhance their performance with various drugs. It’s unfair, and it should definitely be stopped. It reflects on the sport overall, as well as the fighters, in a very negative way. And athletes should get to where they’re going because of all the work they put in, not because they are taking something that will enhance their performance.”In an interesting turn of events, Emelianenko’s opinions on PEDs line up almost identically to UFC president Dana White’s, whom he famously never saw eye-to-eye with. Fedor went on to say that during his career he pushed his body to its limits and he feels that was the key to his success:”When I was competing I would run daily 20 kilometers, and in addition to that I’d put in many hours of fighting and sparring. That’s why I was always able to keep the speed in the ring. I would train so hard that sometimes it was not only hard to stand up, but it would also be hard to lay down. Nowadays in not just this sport, but in other sports, people are trying to substitute that hard work with drugs.”Fedor is currently on a publicity tour along with UFC legends Ken Shamrock, Royce Gracie and Tito Ortiz for Bellator 134 – The British Invasion, which takes place at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut on Friday night.

Midnight Mania! Trump Family In The ‘Chaos’ Corner? Hey, remember back in the day when Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White was too high and mighty to mingle with Va-Dummy and M-Done? Looks like Finky got the last laugh.That’s because White and Co. were forced to partner with M-1 Global and its president, Vadim Finkelchtein, to make some much-needed headway in Russia, one of the last great territories in mixed martial arts (MMA) that has yet to host a UFC event.That’s expected to change with UFC Moscow on Sept. 15. Timeline of Israel Adesanya’s Rapid Rise to UFC Contender Related ”We are looking forward to further cooperation with the UFC and the Russian-Chinese investment fund working on developing young Russian talents,” Finkelchtein said. “This partnership will benefit our sport very much. MMA is a very popular sport and cooperation of the UFC, investment fund and M-1 Global can take MMA in Russia to a new level. Competition in M-1 Global is going to be even tougher and that means we are going to see even more excellent and spectacular fights!”UFC Russia is a joint venture between UFC and Russian-Chinese investment fund, Mubadala Investment Company.Finkelchtein is perhaps best known to stateside MMA fans as the former manager of Fedor Emelianenko. “The Last Emperor” was interested in competing for UFC after the fall of PRIDE in 2007 and even came close to battling Brock Lesnar in Cowboys Stadium, but White balked at the idea of co-promoting with M-1 Global.

Everything you need to stay healthy and fit.* Turmeric photo via istock.com/eskaylimTurmeric has been a health world darling for a while, and the golden spice trend doesn’t seem to be disappearing. Praised by foodies and health nuts alike, turmeric is said to reduce inflammation, improve digestion, and pack in a big dose of antioxidants. Some research, though inconclusive, even suggests it may help ward off chronic disease.Turmeric isn’t just a nutrition powerhouse—with its spicy, earthy flavor, it’s a great addition to any meal or snack. Start with these 10 healthy recipes using turmeric.1. Turmeric Coconut Flour Muffinsvia Megan OlsonThanks to coconut flour, this paleo-friendly turmeric recipe is loaded with fiber. The muffins are perfect for meal prep, as they can be stored in the fridge for up to one week or in the freezer for up to a month.2. Pineapple Turmeric Smoothievia Jar of LemonsFor a taste of the tropics, get your morning started with this simple smoothie. It only takes four ingredients: pineapple, banana, coconut milk, and turmeric.3. Turmeric Oatmealvia Body by AsiaThis recipe uses turmeric and cinnamon for a twist on your typical morning oatmeal. If you’re strapped for time, turn the recipe into overnight oats by swapping the water for almond milk, mixing everything in a mason jar, and letting it sit in the fridge overnight.4. Lemon Turmeric Energy Ballsvia Natalie’s Food & HealthMade with Medjool dates, coconut, turmeric, and other healthy ingredients, these energy balls are an easy breakfast or afternoon snack. If you don’t have a food processor, you can make these in a blender.5. Baked Honey Garlic Turmeric Chickenvia Food Lovin’ FamilyWhen you’re craving fried chicken but want a healthier option, turn to this recipe. Garlic, turmeric, and honey give the chicken its flavor, while Panko breadcrumbs provide a satisfying crunch.6. Turmeric Quinoa with Pomegranates and Walnutsvia Wendy PolisiThis turmeric quinoa is a healthy side dish option. Pomegranate seeds, walnuts, and scallions complement the spicy flavor of turmeric.7. Vegetable Turmeric Soupvia Emilie EatsIf you’re on a health kick, try this turmeric soup with ginger and cayenne pepper. A variety of vegetables add an extra boost of nutrients, while shirataki noodles make the dish a little heartier.8.

John Kerry Compared Donald Trump to OJ Simpson His climate approach is just like OJ’s hunt for his ex-wife’s killer, Kerry said. By Spencer Buell· 6/5/2017, 11:39 a.m. John Kerry Photo by Center For American Progress via Flickr/Creative CommonsJohn Kerry, whose political muzzling during his tenure as Secretary of State is now decidedly over, used a potent analogy when he sat down with NBC’s Meet the Press this weekend. Speaking about Donald Trump’s approach to combating climate change, he compared the president to acquitted murderer O.J. Simpson, referencing the ex-football star’s hunt for his ex-wife’s killer.“When Donald Trump says, well, we’re going to negotiate a better deal, you know, he’s going to go out and find a better deal?” Kerry, the former Massachusetts Senator and climate advocate who helped negotiate the accord in 2015, said on the air. “That’s like O.J. Simpson saying he’s going to go out and find the real killer.”Trump announced last week that he would pull the U.S. out of the Paris accord, the agreement among some 200 nations to reduce carbon emissions in an effort to curb the effects of climate change, saying it hurt the U.S economy and threatened non-green energy jobs. Trump also said in his MIT-disavowed Rose Garden speech that his team was open to re-entering the agreement after negotiating new terms. But Kerry, clearly, isn’t buying it.“Everybody knows he isn’t going to do that because he doesn’t believe in it,” Kerry said in the NBC segment. “If he did believe in it, he wouldn’t have pulled out of Paris. America has unilaterally ceded global leadership on this issue, which for years, even Republican Presidents George H.W. Bush pushed in this direction.”Among the many quirks of the Trump administration’s climate policy, it’s not exactly clear whether Trump believes in climate change. He has previously called it a “hoax,” but UN Ambassador Nikki Haley this weekend said he “knows that [the climate is] changing and that the US has to be responsible for it and that’s what we’re going to do.” Asked about Trump’s feelings on whether climate science is real late last week, Press Secretary Sean Spicer and other aides either didn’t know or wouldn’t say.Kerry last week criticized Trump’s decision in a fiery and widely shared Facebook post, calling it “big mistake” that will “cost us influence, cost us jobs, and invite other countries to walk away from solving humanity’s most existential crisis.”
