Cancelo pays tribute to Ronaldo

first_imgFor the Portugal international footballer, the impact his fellow countryman had in Real Madrid was gigantic and cannot be equalAfter Real Madrid lost 5-1 against a Lionel Messi-less Barcelona team, Portugal international footballer Joao Cancelo paid tribute to Cristiano Ronaldo.“Every day I train with Cristiano Ronaldo and so far he has won five editions of the Ballon d’Or,” Cancelo told Sky Sport Italia as quoted by Football Italia.“If Cristiano doesn’t win it this year, it’s just incredible. He is the best of them all and last season he was more decisive than any other player.”Fati and Suarez shine against Valencia at Camp Nou Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 15, 2019 With a mesmerizing first half from Ansu Fati and a brace from Luis Suarez in the second half, Barcelona demolished Valencia at Camp Nou.Valencia…“The Ballon d’Or can’t just be decided by the World Cup, because that tournament can only be won by a certain number of select nations,” he said.“If you are born in France, Germany or Brazil, clearly sooner or later you’re going to win a World Cup. Seeing Portugal win the Euros, that is a huge achievement and very rare.”“Cristiano won the Champions League as an absolute protagonist, scoring 15 goals. When he plays for a team, that team becomes the best there is,” he commented.“The proof is in the latest Clasico result. Barcelona without Lionel Messi win 5-1, Real Madrid without Cristiano Ronaldo lose 5-1. That is the difference.”last_img read more

Netflix to debut Dave Chappelles next comedy special this month

first_img An Echo Dot makes a fine match for any Fire edition TV, because you can use the latter to say things like, “Alexa, turn on the TV.” Right now, the 24-inch Insignia Fire TV Edition starts at just $100, while the 32-inch Toshiba Fire TV Editions is on sale for $130. Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free.

We’ll let Morgan Freeman tell you the rest. pic.twitter.com/PDyh7YBHhT— Netflix Is A Joke (@NetflixIsAJoke) August 15, 2019 Read the AirPods review 0 Netflix,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.

Enter Tidal, the only “major” service that delivers lossless audio — meaning at least on par with CD quality, if not better. Want to see (er, hear) the difference for yourself? Grab this excellent extended trial while you can. It’s just $6 for three months, and it’s good for up to six listeners. TV and Movies Recently updated to include digital-photo-frame capabilities, the Lenovo Smart Clock brings Google Assistant goodness to your nightstand.

Use promo code 19LABOR10 to get an unusually good deal on JBL’s interesting hybrid product — not quite headphones, and not quite a traditional speaker, but something you wear like neckphones to listen to music on the go. $999 See It Turo is kind of like Uber meets Airbnb: You borrow someone’s car, but you do all the driving. I’ve used it many times and found it a great alternative to traditional car-rental services — in part because you get to choose exactly the vehicle you want (not just, say, “midsize”) and in part because you can often do pickup and dropoff right outside baggage claim.Between now and Sept. 1, the first 300 people to check out can get $30 off any Turo rental with promo code LDW30.

Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution. $6 at Tidal What’s cooler: A snapshot of a firework exploding in front of you, or full 360-degree video of all the fireworks and all the reactions to seeing them? Oooh, ahhh, indeed. At $250, the compact Rylo dual-lens camera is selling for its lowest price yet. And for an extra $50, you can get the bundle that includes the waterproof housing.This deal runs through Sept. 3; it usually costs $500. Comedian Dave Chappelle’s fifth comedy special is coming to Netflix later this month. Kevin Winter/Getty Images Dave Chappelle’s next Netflix comedy special, Sticks and Stones, is slated for an Aug. 26 release, the streaming service said in a tweet Thursday. Netflix shared a Morgan Freeman-narrated teaser promoting the special.”Dave Chappelle. August 26th. We’ll let Morgan Freeman tell you the rest,” the tweet reads.

This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner!

Houston Homeowners Move Forward After Harvey And Many Face Limited Options

first_img 00:00 /02:57 Listen To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Allison LeeMonica Augusta, 47, says this is the second time her home has been flooded.Officials have estimated that Harvey’s floodwaters have destroyed 30,000 to 40,000 Houston homes. And as the city recovers, the people who lived in those homes are asking, “Now what?”Monica Augusta lives in the neighborhood of Bellaire, in southwest Houston. The houses on her block are surrounded by what seems like a graveyard of flood-damaged mattresses, furniture, and personal items.This is the second time her home has flooded, and she said it doesn’t get any easier.“It feels like everyone I talk to, and the more questions I ask, and different answers I get, the more overwhelmed and confused I feel,” she said. “I don’t want to go through this again. A single mom with two kids and two dogs. I can’t go through it again. But, when you have a mortgage that’s already overwhelming, how do you even begin to think of adding to that mortgage?”– / 3Many people around Houston are facing that same exact dilemma, and are reaching out to people like Sam Craven.Craven is the co-founder of Senna House Buyers, in the Heights. Since Harvey, he said he’s been having seven appointments a day; and has racked up over 200 miles on his car within three days, just to get to them.Credit: Allison LeeSam Craven, 32, drives to multiple Senna House Buyers’ clients a day, all across Houston.“Most of the people that I’ve met with have been in the hardest hit areas; the ones that have been hit multiple times. And so, they’ve kind of been through it before,” said Craven.“We have so many people calling us right now, who don’t even know what the next step is. From people calling us saying, ‘Hey, I don’t know how to dry out my house,’ to people calling us crying and upset because they’ve lost everything and they just want to move on and sell their home,” said Craven. “We find ourselves as an unfortunate subject matter expert, here.”Craven said he’s also concerned about insurance adjusters potentially moving their attention from Harvey, to Irma.Credit: Allison LeeSam Craven meets with homeowner Monica Augusta, to calculate how much it would cost to fix damages from Harvey, and how much his business can offer her for the house.And as flood victims continue to navigate through the process, Bellaire homeowner Monica Augusta said the cycle is overwhelming.“You take whatever money you can, make it livable, and move back in. Only to go through it again. Because you don’t have any other options, and I’m feeling that,” she said. “So, part of me thinks, ‘How could you ever go through this more than two, three times. But then I realize you just don’t have options….So maybe we rent the rest of our lives? I don’t know. We’re going to an apartment in [West University Place]. But even that’s terrifying, because now you have rent and a mortgage.”Over the years, Harris County has bought out more flooded homeowners than any county in the country. But the process can take years. And now, FEMA officials are telling the Houston Chronicle they’re trying to find ways to speed up the process, so flooded homeowners can consider buyouts instead of rebuilding.
