The most dog-friendly cities in the world

ADVERTISEMENT


Whether you want to move somewhere completely new or go on a two-week vacation with your pup, you need to know which cities are the most accepting of our beloved canines. Some cities have low dog populations and so naturally, aren’t nearly as fun for you and your dog, while others have dog beaches, parks, and dog-friendly accommodation galore. These are among the most dog-friendly cities in the world.

Rome, Italy

Rome has a whole hoard of dog-friendly attractions. Many of their restaurants and business in general, allow dogs. Not to mention, Rome has a vast number of parks for your pup to play in. There is a beach in Maccarese, not far from Rome’s center which is famous for its love of dogs, too. The beach, named Baubeach, is a beautiful stretch of the coast with plenty of sand and sea for your enjoyment. More importantly, however, is that it is entirely dog-friendly. Here, your dog is free to run and play with other dogs, as well as dig in the sand and go for a dip in the ocean.

Seattle, U.S.A.

Why leave home when one of the world’s most dog-friendly cities is right here in the United States? Seattle has around twice as many dogs as it does children, with 14 off-leash parks and ten others surrounding the city. One of its parks, Magnuson Park, is a staggering nine acres of secure land which even includes a stretch of the shoreline for your dog to enjoy. It’s no surprise, therefore, that the city has numerous dog-friendly hotels, shops, and restaurants, too.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Amsterdam is possibly the most dog-friendly city in the entire world. Unlike most other places, you don’t even have to look for a sign to tell you that dogs are allowed in shops and restaurants, they just are! With the exception of museums and galleries, and places with a sign saying they aren’t welcome – which is rare – dogs can literally go to all of the places that you can in Amsterdam. They have a ton of beautiful dog parks, too, as well as Flevopark, which has a swimming area for canines.

Paris, France

France has the largest dog population in the world, so it comes as no surprise that they welcome dogs into their capital city with open arms. Much like Amsterdam, dogs are generally not allowed in galleries and museums but are welcome almost everywhere else. It’s also typical for Parisian restaurants and pubs to bring an extra chair to your table for your dog, as well as a bowl of water. Paris also has two big dog-friendly parks, Bois de Vincennes and Bois de Boulogne, which are three and two and a half times bigger than New York’s Central Park, respectively. Now, that’s a lot of room to play fetch!

Just because you want to visit or relocate to a city which is good for your pups, doesn’t mean you should suffer. All of these cities love their dogs but also offer some incredible sights and attractions for you, too, making them the perfect destinations, regardless of the reason.

Love cute cafes? These are the best cafes in the world

ADVERTISEMENT


Big fan of coffee? Love having somewhere cozy to spend time with your friends? If that’s the case, you probably love nothing more than settling down with a nice cup of joe in a café. You likely know all the best places to go in your hometown, but what about in other cities around the world? If you need somewhere to enjoy a coffee or two while on vacation, you should probably check out these cute cafés.

Fukuro No Mise (Tokyo)

For all the animal lovers out there, cafés are some of the best places to go. Cat cafés have been popping up all over the world, but it’s not just felines that call these places home. The name Fukuro No Mise translates to Café of Owls, so we’re sure you can guess what animals you’ll find at this establishment. If you’re still not over the loss of Hedwig in the final Harry Potter book, you can drown your sorrows by petting some owls at this cute Tokyo café. Just try not to get too excited. The Owls might be tame, but they’re still birds of prey.

Snakes and Lattes (Toronto)

What’s more relaxing than playing a board game with your friends? Okay, so maybe it’s not that relaxing, but it’s a great way to pass an hour or two while you settle down with some tea or coffee. Plus, at Snakes and Lattes in Toronto, you have a choice of hundreds of classic games to get through while you let your competitive streak run wild. The cute café even hosts its own gaming events every so often, giving you an excellent chance to prove your talents to enthusiasts from around the world.

Big Knit Café (Bangkok)

Nothing says cute and cozy like a knitted scarf or jumper. Luckily, if you’ve no idea what you’re doing with a ball of yarn and some needles, you can learn everything you need to at the Big Knit Café. The establishment offers plenty of tutorials to newbies as they sip on their coffee and enjoy a relaxing afternoon in Bangkok. For those already in the know, there’s plenty of yarn lining the walls that you can take to your table and start working on. Now you just have to decide what it is you want to knit.

Chillout Ice Lounge (Dubai)

You don’t go to Dubai if you can’t handle the heat. However, if the high temperatures prove to be too much for you, at least the Chillout Ice Lounge is designed to cool visitors down. Nearly everything in the establishment is made from ice, including the couches, making it the perfect place for some relief from the heat. Hot chocolates are the drink of choice here, and they’re recommended for staying warm in the subzero café. Things can get so cold that you’ll probably be grateful to return to the Dubai heat once you’ve finished your drink.

There are so many amazing places to enjoy coffee around the world, but these spots take the traditional café to the next level. You’ll want to add them to your bucket list.

World Cup Star Reveals His Favorite Investment Strategy

Fresh off a successful 2018 FIFA World Cup berth in Russia, soccer star Martin Braithwaite, 27, played all four games for Denmark before eventually losing by penalties to World Cup runner-up, Croatia, in a dramatic thriller. A soccer star in the UK and his native Denmark (and whose father hails from Brooklyn, New York, via Guyana), Braithwaite has been a leading factor, for his home team and for Denmark. He recently scored the goal that helped Denmark cinch its place atop the European rankings, but despite his impressive kick game, Braithwaite is actually making some pretty scores off the pitch.

world cup

(Instagram)

 

In addition to co-founding a French clothing line, Braithwaite holds stakes in venture capitalism, and is also a quiet partner in a number of real estate developments in New York City. BLACK ENTERPRISE contributor Philip Michael sat down with Braithwaite to get the soccer star’s take on investments, what he looks for, and his favorite deal to date.

BLACK ENTERPRISE: What up, Champ?

Michael Braithwaite: Chillin’.

BE: Let’s get right to it. You’ve always been into business. You have a number of interests off the field. Where does this interest come from?

Braithwaite: I come from a business family. My aunt is a successful broker in my hometown. My grandfather is a very successful businessman; so are his brothers. And I also know there’s a limited window to make money from football.

BE: What’s your favorite deal at the moment?

Braithwaite: Probably my New York real estate. We invested last year and the portfolio’s 4x’d since then. We’re doing the first smart home development in Jersey City, as well as a historic high-rise in one of the neighborhoods over there. Our clothing line [Trente] is also doing super well at the moment, all online sales.

BE: I’m sure you get pitched a bunch of crazy s**t all the time. What’s the craziest deal someone asked you to invest in?

Braithwaite: Some guys in Miami asked me to invest in concerts, said I’d get my money back 10x. Then you have the classic ones like restaurants. Tons of stupid shit.

BE: What do you look for in a deal? And what’s your favorite investment?

Braithwaite: You always want to look at the people first and foremost, you know that. So that’s really the key thing — have they had successful exits in the past? Have they been successful in their field? But more than anything, I make sure I structure any deal in a way that a) they have skin in the game, b) there’s an underlying asset that will retain value, and c) their earnings are contingent on performance.

BE: How so?

Braithwaite: Well, on the value part, some app for instance, will have crazy valuations based on what they think they will do. Say we have a real estate deal. If we invest in something we’re not managing, the manager’s bonus has to come when my side gets paid. That way you’re protected.

BE: What’s next for you? As far as business?

Braithwaite: On the sport side, my goal is to make my team better and win every week. But the ultimate goal, from a business standpoint, is to make more money off the field than on it. We already see what happens to athletes when they retire; it’s not a pretty sight. Like I said earlier, we have a short window to make money so it’s all about setting the family up for the future; both on and off the pitch.

Best places in the world to watch the leaves change for fall

ADVERTISEMENT


The end of the summer is a sad time for many people. The days grow shorter, and the hot weather disappears, making days at the beach a thing of the past. However, while it’s okay to mourn the loss of summer, there are plenty of reasons to be excited about the changing seasons. Fall is a beautiful time of the year, not least because the leaves turn an impressive assortment of colors. Don’t agree? Maybe that’s because you’ve never seen it happen at these places before.

Great Smoky Mountains (United States)

Anywhere that’s full of trees is bound to be a great place to watch the leaves change color. If you’re looking to enjoy fall without leaving the United States, you might want to spend some time at the Great Smoky Mountains. Sat on the border of North Carolina and Tennessee, these mountains are home to all sorts, including magnolia, hickory and chestnut trees. It’s the most popular national park in the whole of the US, and a lot of these visitors come in the post-summer months. They know that all those leaves are worth seeing.

Amsterdam (The Netherlands)

People in The Netherlands care a lot about the planet. That’s why so many of them whizz around on bikes rather than driving everywhere. With that in mind, it’s unsurprising that the country – Amsterdam, in particular – makes such an excellent destination for people hoping to make the most of fall. Over a fifth of the capital is covered in greenery, with places like Amsterdam Forest offering acres of open woodland for all your leafy needs. You can gaze up at the vibrant colors while you dip your feet in the river – it’s pure bliss.

Kyoto (Japan)

While half of Japan is all about being up-to-date with technology, the other half loves nothing more than embracing nature. The traditional side of Japan is largely affiliated with the peace and tranquility that comes from being at one with Mother Earth. That’s why places like Kyoto have so many trees. Although the country is better known for the cherry blossoms that arrive in the spring, it’s fall foliage is also worth seeing with your own eyes. There are so many temple gardens filled with colorful trees here that you’ll be spoiled for choice when you arrive.

New England (United States)

It seems that there aren’t many places better suited for watching the leaves change color than New England. With states like Maine and Vermont offering maple trees that beam a brilliant red in the fall, New England is the epitome of what people often picture when they think about this time of year. Achieving this incredible color is by no means easy, though. The weather has to be just right during the summer for the vibrancy to shine through, with sunny days and cooler temperatures an essential ingredient. Luckily, as long as these conditions remain optimal, New England will offer you a sight like no other.

Fall might not be as warm and sunny as the summer, but it’s still a great time for enjoying nature. After all, the world never stops being beautiful.

Stephanie Gilmore is the Best Surfer in the World | Claiming Her 7th World Title

WSL PRESS RELEASE

Stephanie Gilmore solidified her fate on Monday at the Beachwaver Maui Pro, winning the World Title in classic 6-8′ conditions. The milestone was a historic one, setting a new bar for the sport and cementing Gilmore as the greatest of her generation.

Now, with 7 World Titles in tow, the Australian is tied with former Championship Tour competitor Layne Beachley for most women’s Titles in history. In addition, not including the Maui Pro, she’s won 29 Championship Tour events – second to only Kelly Slater.

The new World Champ won her first Title during her rookie season in 2007. She then went on to win three more consecutive Titles in 2008, 2009 and 2010.

“I don’t know how to feel,” said Gilmore upon hearing the news. “I wasn’t expecting this to happen right now. I can’t even believe it. It’s so cool. I’m dedicating this win to Pierre Agnes (former Quiksilver CEO who passed away at the beginning of the year). Surfing means everything to me. Ever since I was a little girl, surfing has been all I can think about. It’s my first love.”

The sentiment shined through during her first heat of the day in the most epic conditions this event has seen. Gilmore earned an 8.43 for stringing a variety of maneuvers together, leaving both her competitors combo’d in Round 1.

And while World No. 2 Lakey Peterson came to Hawaii still very much in contention, her performance today was shaky at best. She was caught on the inside while paddling out for her first heat and never fully recovered.

For the first time in her career, the Californian was eliminated in Round 2 at Honolua Bay, upset by wildcard Alana Blanchard. The loss took Peterson out of Title contention.

“I just didn’t perform to the best of my ability today,” said Peterson. “But it’s been an incredible year. I have a lot to learn still. And congrats to Stephanie. What a beautiful surfer. There’s no one more deserving. This hurts but I’m not done yet.”

Although she’s had two event wins this season, Peterson has never beaten Gilmore in a head to head heat.

Lakey Peterson WSL / KELLY CESTARI

Peterson’s coach Mike Parsons, who is also the WSL Big Wave Tour Commissioner, was about 45 miles away at the Jaws Challenge that was happening simultaneously.

“It’s crazy that Mike couldn’t be here,” continued Peterson. “But I wouldn’t be where I am without him. The whole team showed up for me and I’ve never been more proud to be a part of women’s surfing.”

Despite the loss, this marks the best result of Peterson’s career and she’ll have more than one reason to celebrate her accomplishment today.

Amidst the World Title excitement, Ventura native Sage Erickson was on the opposite end of the spectrum. Eliminated in Round 2 by Nikki Van Dijk, Erickson failed to requalify and will not be surfing on the Championship Tour next season. She also narrowly missed requalifying through the QS by one heat at the Port Stephens Toyota Pro earlier this month.

With the apparent setback, she remained in high spirits.

“I’m proud of myself,” said Erickson. “I’m proud of the career I’ve established. I’m excited for this next year and to figure out how to establish my surfing more. And to dive into other aspects of my life.”

Both Sally Fitzgibbons and Carissa Moore were able to soak up some limelight, coming out with dominant performances during the early Rounds. Fitzgibbons earned the highest score of the day with a 9.67 and also the highest combined heat total with a 17.60.

With the highs and lows of the World Title race, pumping conditions and requalification scenarios in the air, there were a lot of mixed emotions going around the island.

But at the end of the day, and after months of World Title talk weighing heavily on everyone’s mind, Gilmore became the new World Champion. The Australian made history this afternoon and raised a new bar for the sport.

But she can’t fully celebrate yet. Gilmore is set to surf in the Quarterfinals against Johanne Defay once the event resumes.

How to plan a trip around the world

ADVERTISEMENT


It’s important these days to open your mind and broaden your experiences. And that means getting out and seeing as much of the world as you can. You might already have spent a lot of time traveling, or you may not even have a passport yet. Either way, a journey around the world could be just what’s been missing from your life.

It’s a really great idea to look at what other cultures have to offer and to try to experience a different way of life. They say travel broadens the mind and enriches the soul. So, if possible, you need to make sure you plan an unforgettable journey around the world and make the most of traveling while you’re young. Here are some ideas that will help you plan the perfect trip around the world.

Where are you going?

The first thing to think about is where you want to go on your travels. The world is a huge place, and you need to plan carefully the countries you want to see. This means doing some research and making sure you find out what you can about the countries in question. Is there anywhere that is unsafe to visit? Which countries, if any, are you going to need a visa for? These are all things to think about before you start booking anything, so you’ll have to do some research.

How much money will you need?

Another thing to consider is the money you’re going to need. It would be great if traveling were free, but the bottom line is that it can be pretty expensive. That means it’s necessary to make sure you plan out the cash you’re going to need. You’re going to need to start saving up so you can afford to go on a trip around the world. But, you should also think about the different currencies you’re going to need, and what the exchange rate is like. Get online and do a bit of research about this, so you make sure you take the right amount of money with you.

Packing

Okay, we know packing might not be your favorite thing, but it is a crucial part of planning a trip around the world. You can’t just up and leave one day with nothing packed and no supplies. In order to make the packing process less intensive you should plan out what you’re going to need, and pack over a longer period of time. That way you reduce the stress and annoyance of the process, and you make sure you leave with everything you need.

Plan your sightseeing

We would also recommend you do your best to ensure that you plan out sightseeing excursions as well. There are a lot of things you may want to see and do when traveling around the world, but you’re not going to have the time to do all of them. So, the best thing to do would be to prioritize and make a list of all the top things you want to see. This way you can make plans to visit them in each country you land in. It will save you time and means you don’t risk missing out on once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.

Check in with people at home

It’s very important to stay safe when you go traveling, and the best way of doing this is to make sure you are careful and sensible. But, you also need to keep in touch with people, so they know where you are and how you’re getting on. Try to have a system in place where you contact friends or family members on a daily basis, and check in with them. This will set their minds at ease and will ensure that somebody always knows where you are.

If you want to go on a trip around the world, it’s important that you make sure you plan it thoroughly. This is potentially a huge undertaking and not something you should just enter into lightly. Make sure you do as much as you can to plan out all the important elements of the trip. This will keep things more organized and will keep you safe during your travels.

Home is the Most Dangerous Place for Women Around the World

For a majority of women around the world, home isn’t where the heart is. Instead, it’s where danger lives.

In 2017, activists marched in Montevideo to end violence against women with UN Women and decried femicide. A new report by the UN shows that female homicides are increasing—and that for a majority of victims, those closest to them put them at the most risk. (UN Women / Creative Commons)

According to new findings from the UN, 58 percent of 87,000 recorded female homicides from 2017 were committed by intimate partners or family members—and that rates of such crimes have increased since 2012. The most common motives men gave for such killings were jealousy and fear of abandonment, whereas women who murdered their own male partners often said that they did so in the wake of long-term patterns of physical violence in their relationship.

“Women continue to pay the highest price as a result of gender inequality, discrimination and negative stereotypes,” Yury Fedotov, the UN Office of Drugs and Crime Executive Director, told Agence France-Presse. “The fact that women continue to be affected by this type of violence to a greater degree than men is indicative of an imbalance in power relations between women and men inside the domestic sphere.”

The UN report found that Africa had the highest rate of women killed by intimate partners in 2017—such violence claimed about 1.7 percent of women in the region. The Americas had the second-highest rate, 1.2 percent; Oceania was ranked third at 0.9 percent; Europe was fourth with 0.6 percent; and Asia, which had the highest number of female homicides in 2017—a total of 20,000 recorded cases—was fifth, with 0.5 percent of those deaths resulting from intimate partner violence.

Data collection practices vary from country to country, and the report did not mention if transgender women were included in the statistics—but despite shortcomings, the findings still paint a stark and urgent picture for advocates worldwide. “There’s limitations to the data,” Jodie Roure, a professor at John Jay College in New York who has done extensive research on violence against women, told the New York Times. “Are we getting a perfect picture? No. But the important part is that we’re talking about it, because we weren’t talking about it not too long ago.”

This study, which was released during the UN’s annual 16 Days Against Gender-Based Violence campaign, also laid out recommendations for law enforcement officers, criminal justice agencies and health and social service sector leaders in order to reduce female homicides—and called on men to become allies to the women in their lives and communities.

“In order to prevent and tackle gender-related killing of women and girls,” it declared, “men need to be involved in efforts to combat intimate partner violence/family-related homicide and in changing cultural norms that move away from violent masculinity and gender stereotypes.”

Kohinur Khyum Tithila is a journalist based in Bangladesh. She is a Fulbright scholar and received her second master’s degree in Magazine, Newspaper, & Online Journalism from Syracuse University, first master’s degree in criminology and criminal justice from Dhaka University, and bachelor’s degree in English from East West University.

While in between shooting the movie adaptation of author Eoin Colfer’s fantasy book series, he would “watch a 90-minute classic” and “see how master filmmakers did things swiftly.”…

‘I Had a Very Good Day at Work Today.’ Phenom Magnus Carlsen Wins World Chess Championship

Norwegian Magnus Carlsen has retained his World Chess Championship title, having beaten challenger Fabiano Caruana 3-0 in a best of four tiebreaker.

Wednesday’s decisive result came after all 12 of the pair’s classical games ended in draws — a result unprecedented in world championship history. In a tie break, players have just 25 minutes on their timers, with 10 seconds added on after every move. In classical games, each player begins with 100 minutes.

Carlsen, a 26-year-old who has been the highest ranked player in the world for eight consecutive years, seemed to have let Caruana off the hook in the last of the 12 classical games on Monday. In a strong position, he chose to offer Caruana, 26, a draw.

But Carlsen was ruthless on Wednesday, winning convincingly in front of a packed crowd in London. Over the last month, the pair have spent close to 50 hours, and played over 750 moves, in a small room in Holborn, London, separated from a deferential audience by a sheet of unidirectional, soundproof glass.

“I’m really happy. I felt like I had a very good day at work today,” Carlsen said following his victory.

The Norwegian, two years older than his rival, is the more animated of the combatants. He slouches, rolls his eyes, fidgets and scrunches his face up when things don’t go according to plan. Like an ace poker player, Caruana rarely gives much away; his eyes remain locked on the board, his hands tucked under his chin. At the end of the final tie break match, there were no wild celebrations or tears. It ended it as it began: with a handshake.

The 2018 World Chess Championship was the first title showdown between the world’s top ranked players since 1990, when Garry Kasparov beat Anatoly Karpov. Carlsen and Caruana are separated by just three ranking points; Carlsen on 2835 and Caruana just behind on 2832. But Carlsen is ranked number one in the world for fast-paced games; Caruana is ranked at number 18.

Having taken a two match lead, Carlsen needed just a draw in the third to seal his victory. When Caruana resigned, the championship went to the world’s number one. Caruana had been aiming to become the first American to win the championship since Bobby Fischer in 1972.

“Obviously I’m disappointed. The idea is to win world championships, not just play in them,” Caruana said during a press conference after the match.

Carlsen has now won all four world championship matches he has played in, having claimed the title for the first time in 2013. He will now hold the title for at least another two years. A grandmaster at just 13 years old, Carlsen is widely considered to be one of the game’s all-time greats.

The most magnificent craters in the world

ADVERTISEMENT


When you think of a crater, you probably think of the incredible shapes, dips and shadows in the moon. But there are some incredible and mesmerizing craters a lot closer to home that you can see for yourself. Craters are formed when a comet, meteoroid or asteroid crashes into a planet – in this case, Earth. Since the beginning of time, scientists have recorded over 170 impact craters on our planet, and here are some of the best in the world!

Lonar Crater Lake

Lonar Crater Lake is one of the most breathtakingly beautiful craters on Planet Earth. The crater is located in Maharashtra, in the western region of India and is said to have been formed around 50,000 years go by a meteoroid. As the shock created a huge crater, a lake began to form in the center and now rocks up an impressive diameter of 3,900 feet. Over the centuries, locals have associated the crater with the god, Vishnu, and surrounded the crater with temples and monuments.

Tswaing Crater

This impressive crater is located in South Africa and has become one of the major landmarks in the country – even having its own museum! The Tswaing Crater was formed 220,000 years go by a stony meteorite (or chondrite) that once hit the Earth. The force of the meteorite created an intense crater that has since turned into a lake full to the brim with rainwater and spring water. As scientists try and uncover more about the history of the crater, they have found stone-age tools that show this location was one of the main sources of water and salt for our ancestors.

Wolfe Creek Crater

Wolfe Creek Crater looks like a still from a NASA image of Mars. But in fact, this crater resides in Australia. The age of the Wolfe Creek Crater is expected to be around 300,000 years old and was formed when a meteorite crashed into the surface of the Earth. When the crater was first formed, it created a 120-meter deep hole – but over time, as the harsh winds of the desert have blown sand across it, it now lies 60 meters deep. Over the past few decades, scientists have scanned the inside of the crater and found numerous iron meteorites on the floor and buried underneath the sand.

Barringer Crater

Barringer Crater in Arizona is often regarded as one of the most impressively preserved craters in human history. It was first discovered by Daniel Barringer, whose family still own the rights to the crater. It’s said that this crater was formed over 40,000 years ago after an iron meteorite struck the Earth, and caused the 170-meter deep crater. It’s said that on impact, the meteorite was traveling at an impressive speed of 12.8 km per second, which is why the crater was so perfectly formed.

Kaali Crater

The Kaali Crater can often be mistaken as a lake – but in that case, it is one of the most beautiful lakes in the world! This crater resides on the Estonian island of Saaremaa and dates back to the 4th century BC. The most incredible aspect of this crater is that there isn’t just one. Instead, as the meteorite fell towards Earth, it broke into smaller pieces and struck the Earth in nine locations around this island. The largest and most popular crater is 22 meters deep, 110 meters wide and is now a freshwater lake.

The Movie Green Book Is Named for a Real Guide to Travel in a Segregated World. Its Real History Offers a Key Lesson for Today

The object that provides the title for the new movie Green Book is a Jim Crow-era travel guide with extensive listings of hotels, restaurants, gas stations, shops and tourist facilities that welcomed black patronage. The book doesn’t actually get much screen time, but one small moment in the film shines a light on an oft-forgotten truth about the history of segregation in the United States: this was not just a Southern problem.

The film tells a loose version of the true story of an unlikely friendship between Dr. Don Walbridge Shirley (played by Mahershala Ali) — an African-American polyglot, pianist and PhD — and Frank Anthony Vallelonga, known as Tony Lip (played by Viggo Mortensen), a nightclub bouncer. In 1962, Vallelonga was hired by Shirley’s record label, Cadence Records, to serve as the musician’s chauffeur and bodyguard during a tour, which included gigs in the Deep South. Despite the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court decision, which dismantled de jure segregation in public education, de jure and de facto segregation remained the order of the day in public accommodations throughout the nation. Consequently, while Vallelonga and the white members of the Don Shirley Trio, bassist Ken Fricker and cellist Juri Taht, had access to white mainstream public accommodations, Shirley remained confined by the limits of Jim Crow.

To assist him in navigating this racial landmine, Vallelonga was provided a copy of what was informally known as the Green Book. Vallelonga is primarily concerned with the logistics of travel in the segregated South, and that’s where the movie spends most of its time, but the Green Book was a valuable safety resource for black travelers in every region of the country. In fact, its initial focus was New York City, where Shirley and Vallelonga both resided. As Shirley’s tells his chauffeur, he doesn’t have to leave home in order to experience discrimination.

In 1930, New Yorker and social critic George Schuyler admonished those blacks “who could afford to do so” to “purchase an automobile as soon as possible in order to be free of discomfort, discrimination, segregation and insult,” which was part and parcel of public transportation. For certain, private motorists were shielded from public assault, police encounters notwithstanding — but blacks in cars still had to navigate the public landmines of restrooms, lodgings and eateries.

Hence, Victor H. Green, an African American New York City mail carrier, first published The Negro Motorist Green-Book in 1936 to assist black motorists in finding safe public accommodations during their travels. Green’s publication became the Bible of black travel guides and was published annually until 1966.

In the introduction to the 1949 edition, Green provided a historical overview of the first decade of the publication, noting that his ideas for his own publication had come from researching earlier African America travel guides that were out-of-print, as well as from the Jewish press, which “provided information about places that are restricted,” and from “numerous publications that give the genteel whites all kinds of information.” Green’s intended purpose for his guide was “to give the Negro traveler information that will keep him from running into difficulties [and] embarrassments.” Green admonished the black motorist to “Keep this guide in your car for ready reference.”

In a 2010 NPR interview, civil rights icon Julian Bond recalled the importance of the Green Book during trips with his family while growing up. “It didn’t matter where you went — Jim Crow was everywhere then,” he stated, “and black travelers needed this badly. My family had a ‘Green Book’ when I was young, and used it to travel in the South to find out where we could stop to eat, where we could spend the night in a hotel or somebody’s home.”

It would be easy to assume that the Green Book was just a Southern travel guide. But Green made no assumption that black people would only need his help while traveling in the South. Not only did the book include information about international travel, it also contained listings about areas in the country where segregation was less visible but no less felt. Indeed, the 1936 edition of the book was a 15-page pamphlet that focused on locales in the New York metropolitan area — where a substantial part of the book’s audience would have lived.

Despite its multicultural and liberal reputation, New York City has a sordid racial history, which dates back to the colonial era.

As Brian Purnell and Jeanne Theoharis have described for the Washington Post, racial animus in the Big Apple began with the colonization of Native Americans and importing of enslaved Africans in the 17th century. Despite gradual emancipation, which ended slavery in the state by the 1830s, and a strong abolitionist movement to eradicate slavery in the South, racial equality continued to be withheld from blacks New Yorkers. With the New York economy “wedded to slavery,” the years leading up to the Civil War were dominated by pro-slavery sentiment that lead to racial violence in the city in 1863 when Lincoln called for a mandatory draft.

After the Civil War, New York mirrored the South as “black people . . . suffered from written and unwritten rules against racial mixing in marriage, public accommodations and housing.” New York maintained its policy of segregation during the decades following WWII by constructing “housing, parks, playgrounds, highways and bridges,” Purnell and Theoharis write, which “adhered to ethnic composition rules for urban planning,” leaving segregated neighborhoods and subsequently schools intact. In 1964, the year President Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act, which ended segregation in public accommodations and banned employment discrimination based on race, color, sex, religion or national origin, a New York Times poll showed that most white people in New York City believed that “the Civil Rights Movement had gone too far” in granting black demands for racial equality.

Green made clear in the 1949 edition that he was optimistic about the future of the United States, if not the future of his book. “There will be a day sometime in the near future when this guide will not have to be published,” he wrote. “That is when we as a race will have equal opportunities and privileges in the United States. It will be a great day for us to suspend this publication for then we can go wherever we please.”

The Green Book was discontinued shortly after its founder’s 1960 death, following a 1966-1967 Vacation Guide edition. That issue featured a statement assuring its patrons that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was fact and not fiction. The struggle was finally over.

But race still matters in the United States. As the incident at a Starbucks in Philadelphia — not in the South — demonstrated this year, the nation is still full of spaces like parks, swimming pools , golf courses, sidewalks, and parking lots that are not welcoming to black Americans. During that 2010 Julian Bond interview with NPR, a caller stated, “Well, I was thinking that this [The Green Book] might be a useful tool still today . . . because in some parts of the country, there are places where black people … dare not go.”

Indeed, sixty years after The Green Book was discontinued, the search for black safety continues.

Hufflepuffs Can — And Will — Save the World

Move over, Gryffindor. Hufflepuffs are the real heroes here.



When we reached out to our Harry Potter community, asking all self-proclaimed Hufflepuffs to describe their unique House pride, we weren’t at all surprised to find that many fans didn’t love their Hogwarts House assignment at first. Countless stories began with community members expressing their knee-jerk shame in being sorted into Hufflepuff — some outright admitting to lying or cheating to skew their results.

“I never really wanted to be a Hufflepuff,” began FANDOM user Squidwiki2017, echoing many similar responses. “Gryffindor was my house until I [took the] Pottermore quiz.”



Once the butt of many jokes, Hufflepuff has blossomed into one of the proudest and most-searched Houses online on our site alone with over 800 thousand page views each year. How did Hufflepuffs reveal themselves to be the true heroes of the Wizarding World, and what made us too blind to see it for so many years?

Hufflepuffs Began as Punching Bags



First, we must ask ourselves where all the Hufflepuff Hostility™ came from. Draco essentially said he would leave Hogwarts for good if he were dubbed a Hufflepuff. Even Hagrid — the benign, the beloved! — had less than flattering things to say about the Hufflepuff House: “Everyone says Hufflepuff are a lot o’ duffers.” This from the loose-lipped professor who drank in front of students and led unsanctioned excursions through the dangerous Forbidden Forest? I love you, Hagrid, but glass houses, my man. Glass houses.

The blatant bias against Hufflepuffs wasn’t contained to the books and films alone. Out here in the non-Wizarding World, the name “Hufflepuff” became synonymous with everything bumbling and unremarkable. Youtube videos, mean tweets, and jokes from parents and peers painted Hufflepuffs as the butt of the joke. If you were the Hufflepuff of your group, of Congress, of the New York Yankees — it meant you were less sharp and less accomplished than your peers. Even Mindy Kaling — as beloved and benign as Hagrid — once tweeted, “No one wants to be a Hufflepuff.”

Type ‘Hufflepuff’ into Google and it will autofill your search with mean questions from days past: “Why Are Hufflepuffs lame?” “Is Hufflepuff for losers?” Our personal favorite: “Hufflepuff = stoner house.” But all the trite Huffle-puff-puff-pass jokes aside, where did all this hate come from?

The History of Hufflepuff



Some people attribute Hufflepuff’s broad-stroked reputation to its aesthetic: Their mascot is a seemingly timid badger, and their house color is a polarizing bright yellow. But let us never forget the much-memed “Fearless Honey Badger” who took on six lions, or Beyoncé’s now iconic dress in the “Hold Up” music video. Sadly, no, the real source of all this Hufflepuff Hate is far less surface or cosmetic; it comes from a deep and reckless misread of the House’s Hogwarts origin story.

Everyone knows that before there was a Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, there were Four Founders (or, as I like to call them, the Alliterati): Godric Gryffindor, Rowena Ravenclaw, Salazar Slytherin, and Helga Hufflepuff. Each created their own namesake house. Gryffindor famously chose students who were brave and chivalrous; Slytherin called dibs on the ambitious and the cunning; Ravenclaw selected the studious and the intelligent; and, according to the Sorting Hat’s sing-song version of the legend in Order of the Pheonix, Helga Hufflepuff “took the rest.”



A shallow read of this tale implies that Hufflepuff was established as a House of leftovers; the bottom-of-the-barrel kids left on the bleachers and selected last for gym class Quidditch teams. But this is a complete misconception. The Hat’s song goes on to say that Helga “taught them all she knew.” These teachings included magical cookery (apparently she could whip up one mean pot roast), fostering House Elf and wizard relations, and more. Helga valued generosity, ingenuity, and friendship — and she made sure that anyone who bore her namesake House would do the same.



And Helga succeeded. Some of the most dedicated and steadfast characters in the whole franchise hailed from Hufflepuff. Take, for example, the courageous Triwizard contender Cedric Diggory, or the Heiress of Herbology herself, Professor Pomona Sprout. (Please, leave your Herbology stoner jokes at the door.) Yet people still perpetuated the tired idea that Hufflepuff, unlike the other three Houses, was a motley hodgepodge of the talentless and unremarkable. Clearly, something had to change — and who better to usher that in than the source of the holy texts herself, Harry Potter author JK Rowling?

The Hufflepuff Revolution



“Hufflepuff is my favorite House in some ways,” Queen Rowling said in a 2012 live chat. “The Hufflepuffs stayed [to fight in the Battle of Hogwarts] for a reason. They didn’t want to show off. They weren’t being reckless. That’s the essence of Hufflepuff. My daughter Jessica said to me recently, who wasn’t sorted into Hufflepuff, ‘I think we should all want to be Hufflepuffs.’ I can only say to you, I would not be disappointed at all to be in Hufflepuff. I’m a little upset anyone does feel that way.”



There it is, folks, staring us in the face as clearly Lily Potter’s green eyes: We should all want to be Hufflepuffs. Rowling’s quote jump-started a grassroots PR campaign for the Hufflepuff House. No longer were they the leftovers — now they were the loyal; the hard-working; the aspirational. And as if being ordained by Rowling wasn’t enough, celebrities began to come out of the woodwork as Hufflepuffs, including “proud Hufflepuff” Eddie Redmayne, Rupert Grint, and Dwayne ‘the Rock’ Johnson. This is the Dwayne Johnson that battles earthquakes and giant gorillas for a living, so remind us how Hufflepuffs aren’t badasses again?



On FANDOM, no House’s Wiki has come close to collecting more pageviews in the last four years (with over 3.4 million visits to the page and counting). The Hufflepuff community on Reddit challenged the other three houses to a good-doing contest. They encouraged their peers to better the world, in true Huffle spirit, with small but impactful tasks like conserving water and donating books to a local library. Hufflepuffs, once marginalized on the internet, have become a mobilized force to reckon with.

Hufflepuff’s Famous New Hero



And, of course, there’s Newt. No one deserved a leading man more than the Hufflepuff House, and they finally got a hero in Newton Scamander, the next-generation hero of the Fantastic Beasts movie franchise. Newt, in all of his Hufflepuff glory, isn’t much of a rabble-rouser; his power comes from his empathy. “You know what I admire about you, Newt?” Dumbledore asks during Crimes of Grindelwald. “You do not seek power. You simply ask, ‘Is a thing right?’” As the Fantastic Beast films have and will continue to prove, Newt’s the unconventional hero we all deserve: diligent, moral, and as kind to magic’s cousin of the rhino (the erumpent) as he is his fellow human beings.



When we asked Hufflepuffs from our Harry Potter community to explain what made them gleam with Badger Pride, user RackUp said it most magically: “As a person, I parallel Newt in many ways. He’s a kind soul that tries to always be honest, but he’s also a bit of an introvert when it comes to people. Once you get to know him, however, you learn that Newt is actually a great person, if a little atypical (maybe the Swooping Evil joke on Kowalski wasn’t the nicest). Now that I know how similar other Hufflepuffs are to myself, I’m proud to call myself one.”

The Future of Hogwarts’ Houses



Now that Hufflepuff has received its much-deserved comeuppance, what House shall history reconsider next? You could make a convincing argument that Slytherin needs a public rebranding; they’re in no way all Death Eaters and bigots, and to claim that is to paint with the same wide brushstrokes that maligned Hufflepuffs for all those years. Or maybe it’s Ravenclaw that deserves its time in the sun — comparatively little is known about Hogwarts’ brainiest house, and it seems fans are growing increasingly intrigued: No other house has seen such a surge in pageviews on our site (a 33% growth in just four years).

Maybe, with the cinematic expansion of the Wizarding World, fans will come to associate themselves with Houses from wizarding schools abroad. In ten years, will the young and the young-at-heart define themselves as Thunderbirds from America’s school, Ilvermony? Or a now-unknown house from Brazil’s Castlobruxo, or Uganda’s Uagadou?

Over the years, and especially considering the evolution of Hufflepuff, we’ve learned that we must approach Hogwarts House assignments with a touch more nuance. Many were too quick to judge Severus Snape as a self-serving Slytherin when he actually dedicated his life to avenging the woman he loved. And what about the ultimate Gryffindor, Albus Dumbledore? Was he not sometimes driven by the desire to attain glory and even to escape death? Aren’t those classic Slytherin characteristics?



Identifying with a Hogwarts House is a phenomenal diving board into introspection. Who are you? What do you value? Do you look good in yellow? (Answer to the last question: Not as good as Beyoncé.) But people are complicated, people! You can tell them which section of a castle to live in and which Quidditch team to root for, but you can’t reduce their personality to a single trait and judge them for it. Humans — be they magical or muggle — are so much more dynamic than their Hogwarts House.

Trade routes that shaped world history

ADVERTISEMENT


Trade routes are routes that are used on a widely known basis to transport goods to and from different places. Some trade routes across the world are more significant than others, due to the course that they take or the goods that are transported along them; some of them are important culturally because they were used to experience things you can’t buy, like religion. Here are some of the trade routes that shaped world history.

Amber Road

The Amber Road has been used to transport goods since the year 3,000 B.C. Amber might not seem like it has any significance to us, but it has actually been incredibly useful and valuable over the years. The Romans valued amber very highly for decorative purposes, and it played a big role in the design of their homes, palaces and other buildings, which we have been able to discover today thanks to Amber’s long lasting quality. The ‘Amber Highway’ as it came to be called has also been witness to a lot of deaths, following the rise of demand for Amber in the 12th and 13th centuries, where people would kill merchants who were transporting the precious stone.

Silk Road

The Silk Road is not just one of the most famous trade routes in the world, it’s also one of the oldest, and its use dates back to as far as the first century B.C! It was used by the ancient civilizations of China and by the Roman Empire. At first, the route was used to transport a lot of practical and luxury items, ranging from anything between wool and gold, but over time, more important things were transported down this route; knowledge, trade secrets, art, and religion. Of course, one of the most famous products transported down this trade route was silk, which started during the Han Dynasty. The Chinese were so protective of their trade route that they constructed the Great Wall of China, just to keep it safe!

The Salt Route

Salt might just seem like an everyday household commodity now, but hundreds and thousands of years ago, salt was incredibly precious – so much so that in the Roman age, it actually used to make up a portion of people’s wages. It is used for food and for flavoring, to preserve things, and to heal things with its antiseptic qualities. It is so versatile and used to be so difficult to get hold of that salt routes were crucial. There were several trade routes known as ‘salt roads’ such as Via Saleria in Italy and the Old Salt Route in Germany.

Tea Horse Road

There’s no denying we all like a cup of tea every now and then (daily if you’re British), but do you know how dangerous transporting tea used to be? The Tea Horse Road is one of the most precarious of all the world famous trade routes, with over 6,000 miles of winding roads through mountains and over rivers. Of course, one of the main commodities transported along this route was Chinese tea, but it was also the route for trading Tibetan Warhorses too.

These trade routes have all changed the world around us, in one way or another. Without some of these famous (and often dangerous) trade routes, we wouldn’t have commodities such as tea or salt in our homes today. How strange would that be?

‘World of Warcraft Classic’ is kind of agonizing

TwitterFacebook

World of Warcraft Classic is delivering on its promise to bring back the original World of Warcraft experience, for better or worse.

I had a chance to play the World of Warcraft Classic demo at BlizzCon, rolling a level 15 Tauren shaman to try to recapture the experience of my youth. Kicking around in the arid Barrens zone that I remember from the good old days, I was struck by how foreign the game felt.

Since WoW first launched in 2004, a ton of changes have been made to the game. Of course there have been some visual upgrades and aesthetic changes, and then the expansion World of Warcraft: Cataclysm changed the actual landscape of many of the games’ zones and storylines. Read more…

Breathtaking zoos around the world

ADVERTISEMENT


There are zoos in nearly every city in the world – but most of them are the same old thing, one after another. We want excitement, we want exotic animals, we want cool architecture, and we want the best experience. Unfortunately, some of the typical city zoos just don’t cut it for us (because obviously, we only want the best, am I right?) Check out the 5 most breathtaking zoos around the world that you’ll want to visit ASAP.

Singapore Zoo

Many people are often put off by zoos because they want to see the animals free, without cages, and able to roam about where and when they want to. Luckily, the Singapore Zoo gets that. This wildlife park is spread across 64-acres and full of over 2,800 animals from a whopping 300 species! However, they don’t cage any of them. All of the animals in the Singapore exhibits are open-air; separated from the visitors by moats, underwater galleries, elevated edges, platforms and glass observatories. Not only is this more humane and comfortable for the animals, but it also enhances visitors’ viewing experience. So yes, you can get up close and personal with a baboon’s bottom if you wish.

The Berlin Zoo

If you’re looking for a zoo with a bit more class and elegance, then the Berlin Zoo is for you. As the oldest zoo still standing in Germany (it was opened in 1844! What?!) it houses over 9,500 animals and boasts the largest aquarium in the whole world – including an elevated Hippopotamus House which allows you to see the hippos swimming above you as you walk through a tunnel. Alongside the incredible wildlife, the Berlin Zoo also offers some of the most attractive architecture of any other zoo in the world. Trust us.

The London Zoo

If you can believe it, the London Zoo is even older than the Berlin Zoo – and was opened in 1826! The zoo first opened as an animal research facility and has since developed a huge following as one of the best zoos in the world. The London Zoo is also famous for its incredible Victorian architecture which adorns the buildings and covers the animals up from the elements. This zoo houses thousands of animals, including gorillas, Komodo Dragons, tigers, penguins and Galapagos Tortoises. Another claim to fame for London Zoo is that it was also one of the locations where Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was filmed.

National Zoological Gardens of South Africa

The National Zoological Gardens of South Africa is unlike any other zoo you have or will ever visit. This zoo covers an incredible 216 acres worth of land and is one giant playground for the animals – rather than a zoo. Because of its size, this zoo offers a cable car, golf carts and 6km worth of trails to get you from exhibit to exhibit. And you’re going to want to see all of it, considering it houses over 9,000 animals from over 700 different animal species. Where else are you going to be able to walk alongside the elephants?

Sydney’s Taronga Zoo

How would you like to visit a zoo with incredible views of Sydney Opera House and overlooking the Sydney Harbor? No, this isn’t a dream. You can get all this at Sydney’s Taronga Zoo. On the one side, you have the bustling city of Sydney, and on the other side, you have the beginning of the outback. And slap bang in the middle, you have the zoo. Offering some of the most famous Australian animals, including Tasmanian Devils, Australian sea lions, koalas and over 300 other species, you won’t run out of things to look at – both inside and outside the zoo.

Simone Biles Overcomes Mistakes to Win 4th All-Round World Championship

(DOHA, Qatar) — Simone Biles is still the best even when she’s not at her best.

The 21-year-old star won her fourth world all-around championship Thursday, surviving a series of uncharacteristic mistakes to become the first woman to earn four all-around titles. Biles had a score of 57.491, nearly 1.7 points in front of silver medalist Mai Murakami of Japan.

That’s a sizable margin for nearly everyone else, but not for Biles. Battling a kidney stone, she sat down her vault in the first rotation, came off the beam on her third and stepped out of bounds on floor exercise. Yet she still had enough to extend her remarkable winning streak.

Biles has finished first in every meet she’s entered since the 2013 US championships, though this one was far tighter than usual.

A spirited effort from Murakami — the first Japanese woman to medal in the all-around final since Koko Tsurumi in 2009 — and bronze medalist and U.S. teammate Morgan Hurd helped. In the end, however, it was Biles against herself.

Not content to simply rely on her remarkable talent, Biles is intent on pushing the sport forward. It’s an approach that leads her to put together the most difficult routines and gives her basically a head start in every meet because her start values are so high.

For once, Biles needed the cushion to pull through.

Nearly a year to the day since she returned to the gym following a well-deserved sabbatical after her five-medal haul at the 2016 Olympics, Biles came into the all-around final at the height of her considerable powers. She put on a spectacular display during qualifying, her total of 60.965 — 4.5 points clear of Hurd — made all the more startling considering she revealed she’s battling a kidney stone she’s jokingly called “the Doha Pearl.”

It was more of the same during team finals, when Biles served as the anchor on all four events as the Americans cruised to their fourth consecutive world championship with ease.

Yet the casual dominance Biles has won with for a half decade evaporated in the desert.

Most meets with Biles typically start the same. She drills the vault — where she is the reigning Olympic champion — and then spends the next three rotations simply padding her lead to margins that look like typos.

Not this time. Attempting “the Biles” — a roundoff, half-twist onto the table, front double full off typically done by men — her left arm barely touched the table, causing her to under-rotate. She landed and promptly sat down, forcing her to play catch up. Known for getting angry after mistakes, she responded by drilling her significantly improved uneven bars set, drilling her double-twisting double-somersault dismount to move slightly in front of Hurd halfway through.

Then things got weird. Biles hopped off the beam early in her routine then grabbed the four-inch piece of wood later when she had trouble landing a front flip, a sequence she struggled with during qualifying.

The miscues gave the rest of the field a small opening. One no one in the rest of the top six could get through. Hurd wobbled twice during her set, leaving Biles a slim margin of .092 over Belgium’s Nina Derwael heading to Biles’ signature event.

Murakami’s excellent floor routine put pressure on Biles, but only a little. Needing a 13.308 to win, her 15.000 was the best on the floor by a full point even though her right foot went out of bounds during the end of her intricate opening tumbling run.

Not that it mattered. In the end the meet finished the way they have always finished for the last five years when Biles is involved: with her atop the podium standing above a sport that is desperately trying to keep up.

The Red Sox Are Celebrating Their World Series Victory By Silencing Everyone Who Doubted Them on Twitter

Not content to win the 2018 World Series, the Red Sox kept their victory lap going on Twitter.

The Boston team may have beat the L.A. Dodgers 5-1 to claim the World Series title in Game 5 Sunday night, but the Red Sox social media account still had more scores to settle on Twitter by Monday morning.

In a series of home run tweets, the account celebrated the World Series victory by clapping back at the peanut gallery, singling out a few non-believers who tweeted their doubts on Opening Day.

“Better luck next year,” one user had written.

“This year seemed to work out okay,” the team fired back, still basking in their glory with an arsenal of casually braggadocious tweets. The epic trolling only got more savage from there.

Clearly the Twitter account is a star hitter.

This marks the ninth World Series championship for the Boston Red Sox.

See below for a sampling of some of the tweets.

The World Series Championship banner was raised outside of Fenway Park on Monday morning, and the celebration continues at Wednesday morning’s parade in Boston.

Lots of things have to go perfectly right in order to pull it off, and one thing that can’t be overlooked is the parachute.

Red Sox Beat Dodgers 5-1 to Win the World Series Title

(LOS ANGELES) — The Boston Red Sox won their fourth World Series championship in 15 years, beating the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 in Game 5 Sunday night behind David Price’s pitching and Steve Pearce’s power.

Alex Cora became the first manager from Puerto Rico to guide a team to the title. He’s just the fifth rookie skipper to do it overall.

After posting a team-record 108 wins during the regular season and romping through the AL playoffs, the Red Sox finished off a one-sided Series

Price threw three-hit ball into the eighth inning. Pearce hit two home runs, a night after his homer and three-run double spurred a late rally.

Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez also connected as the Red Sox hit three homers off Clayton Kershaw.

Los Angeles lost Game 7 of the World Series last year to Houston, also at Dodger Stadium by the same 5-1 score.

Dodgers Win Game 3 in the World Series’ Longest Game Ever

(LOS ANGELES) — Brian Dozier swung bananas from a rope over the dugout railing.How appropriate. The longest game in World Series was bananas.Twenty-three players on each team, including nine pitchers.

Eighteen innings — four more than any of the previous 662 World Series games.

Seven hours, 70 minutes — 1:39 longer than any Series game played before.

Walker Buehler threw the first pitch in autumn twilight at 5:10 p.m.

Max Muncy homered on the 561st and last at 12:30 a.m., when most of America was asleep and even fans up in Alaska and out in Hawaii were struggling to stay up.

Ernie Banks would have been happy — the Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox filled his oft-said desire: Let’s play two! “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” was played twice, during the seventh-inning stretch and the 14th inning elongation.

“It was an amazing game,” Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig said. “I’m a little tired. But we’re ready to come back tomorrow.”

Then he looked at his watch and corrected himself.

“In a couple of hours,” Puig said.

Live from Hollywood: the Late Late Late Show: The Dodgers’ dramatic, draining, dizzying 3-2 victory Friday night cut their World Series deficit to 2-1.

“I think my beard got about 3 inches longer,” said Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner, whose red whiskers already were Santa length.

Soccer ends after 120 minutes and is decided by penalty kicks.

Even Wimbledon is instituting fifth-set tiebreakers next year when tied 12-12 after John Isner’s 70-68 first-round triumph over Nicolas Mahut in 2010 and Isner’s 26-24 semifinal defeat to Kevin Anderson this year.

No U.S. major team sport DOUBLED the length of a game in its championship. Notably, a Boston team has been involved in the longest title match in all four of the major sports.

Only once has the Super Bowl gone to overtime, with only an extra 11:02 needed for New England’s win over Atlanta in 2017 .

There have been only two NBA Finals games needing the extra 15 minutes of three overtimes, Boston’s victory over Phoenix in 1976and the Suns’ win over Chicago in 1993 . The longest Stanley Cup final matchup was Edmonton’s win over Boston in the 1990 opener, a three-overtime affair requiring an extra 55:13.

“You look up and see the 18th inning, and you’re like, holy cow, where did the game go?” Muncy said. “Those last nine innings or so just kind of blended together.”

The Dodgers munched on peanut butter and banana sandwiches provided by a team employee, and hung the bananas to produce fruitful luck — harkening back to the rally banana credited by Enrique Hernandez for helping end a 35-inning scoreless streak three years ago.

“You want to have fun with it,” said Rich Hill, the Dodgers scheduled Game 4 starter before a middle-of-the-night change to TBA to match Boston’s probable pitcher.

Clayton Kershaw, a three-time NL Cy Young Award winner with a .163 career batting average, pinch hit in the 17th inning and lined out.

“Starting pitchers are used to getting their spikes on, but nothing usually comes to fruition,” Kershaw said.

Muncy nearly won the game in the 15th inning, pulling a long drive off Nathan Eovaldi that hooked just to the foul side of the right-field pole . Eovaldi, Boston’s scheduled Game 4 starter, was starting his seventh inning of relief when Muncy hit an opposite-field drive to left-center for the Dodgers’ fourth World Series walkoff hit. He joined Cookie Lavagetto, whose double in 1947’s fourth game ended a no-hit bid by the Yankees’ Bill Bevens ; Jackie Robinson, whose 10th-inning single in 1956’s sixth game scored Jim Gilliam ; and Kirk Gibson, whose two-out, two-run pinch homer off Oakland’s Dennis Eckersley won the 1988 opener .

“All I know is we’re feeling pretty good about ourselves right now,” Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts said.

Rookie right-hander Walker Buehler allowed two hits over seven shutout innings and left with a one-run lead provided by Joc Pederson’s third-inning homer off Rick Porcello.

Jackie Bradley Jr.’s eighth-inning homer against Kenley Jansen tied the score, Dodgers center fielder Cody Bellinger threw out Ian Kinsler at the plate in the 10th to keep the game going, the Red Sox went ahead on pitcher Scott Alexander’s throwing error in the 13thand the Dodgers tied it 2-2 on Kinsler’s two-out throwing error from second base in the bottom half .

After hitting .297 in winning the first two games at cozy, chilly Fenway Park, Boston was 5 for 57 at the plate in the warmth of Dodger Stadium— including 0 for 28 in the top four slots of the batting order.

“This was a gut-wrenching game for both sides,” Muncy said. “Their guys are banged up, our guys are banged up.”

Boy Who Made Meghan Markle a Macaroni Necklace Now Taking Jewelry Orders from Around the World

Meghan Markle is known for being a style icon, even when it comes to the homemade accessories she wears.

While greeting fans in Melbourne during the Royal Tour last week, Meghan was approached by 6-year-old Gavin Hazelwood, who gifted the Duchess a homemade pasta necklace. The royal, 37, instantly put the adorable necklace on, and now Gavin is becoming just as well-known with jewelry order requests coming in from around the world.

“We had a lot of people saying to Gavin, you should make more, you’ll make lots of money from this, everybody will want to buy her necklace,” his mom, Rowan Hazelwood, told Network 10, as reported by CBS News.

The family decided to create a website for Gavin, where fans can purchase the dinosaur-shaped pasta with gold paint necklaces for $ 20. The kindergartener has since received orders from Australia, the U.K. and the U.S.

Gavin intends on donating all of his profits to a stillborn research charity, CBS reported, as his mother previously lost a baby girl.

“She’s a part of our lives still, even for the kids, and they talk to her every day,” she told Network 10.

The Melbourne native, who was adorably dressed as a Qantas pilot, crafted the ribbon and gold-painted pasta necklace earlier that morning after telling his mom he was feeling sick so he could skip school and make the necklace for Meghan.

“I did the pasta with gold paint. Mum helped me thread through the necklace,” he told Fairfax Media.

After receiving the gift, Meghan immediately put it on over her navy Dion Lee dress. The royal mom-to-be, who is expecting her first child with Prince Harry, proudly wore the gift during the rest of the outing until she arrived at a formal reception inside Government House.

Meghan often wears jewelry that has sentimental meaning.

Earlier in the tour, she wore butterfly earrings that once belonged to Princess Diana. And when Prince Harry and Meghan first began dating, she was spotted wearing a gold, personalized necklace with the letters M and H on it.

Red Sox Defeat Dodgers Once Again for a 2-0 World Series Start

(BOSTON) — From playoff flop to October ace in two legacy-shifting starts, David Price earned his second postseason victory in a row and moved the Boston Red Sox halfway to yet another World Series title.

The Red Sox left-hander pitched six innings of three-hit ball, and major league RBI leader J.D. Martinez broke a fifth-inning tie during another two-out rally to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-2 on Wednesday night.

Game 3 is Friday in Los Angeles. The Dodgers need a win to avoid an 0-3 deficit that no World Series team has ever recovered from.

“This is the biggest stage in baseball,” Price said after his longest postseason outing since signing a seven-year, $ 217 million contract to come to Boston in 2016. “To be able to do that, it feels good, for sure. I’m pumped for myself, pumped for all my teammates and coaches for us to be two wins away.”

Mookie Betts had three hits for the Red Sox, who have won 14 of their last 16 World Series games dating to a four-game sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals in 2004. They have won two more championships since then, in ’07 and ’13.

Not bad for a team that went the previous 86 years without a title.

And Price had battled a curse of his own.

The one-time Dodgers draft pick has pitched like an ace in the regular season but was 0-9 in his first 10 postseason starts before this October. Whether with Tampa Bay, Toronto, Detroit or Boston, his team had never won a playoff game he started before this year.

But the Red Sox have now won his last three postseason starts, including the ALCS Game 5 clincher against the defending World Series champion Astros in which he pitched six shutout innings.

“I get it, the numbers and all that. But this guy is a great pitcher,” Boston manager Alex Cora said. “He’s been one of the best pitchers in the big leagues for a while, and he cares.”

On a frigid night at Fenway Park, Price held the highest-scoring team in the NL hitless through three innings and retired the last seven batters he faced. He struggled only in the fourth, loading the bases with nobody out on two singles and a walk as the Dodgers took a 2-1 lead — their first of the Series.

“I’m so happy for him and proud of him,” Martinez said. “Going through all that criticism that he’s been getting here, to bounce back to what he’s been doing.”

And the Red Sox batters did what they’ve been doing: scoring with two outs.

In an uncanny stretch of clutch hitting that’s been their hallmark throughout their 108-win season, the Red Sox scored all their runs in Game 2 with two outs, including a three-run rally in the fifth that only started after Hyun-Jin Ryu set down Ian Kinsler and Jackie Bradley Jr.

Christian Vazquez singled, Betts did the same and Andrew Benintendi worked the count full before walking to load the bases, chasing Ryu. Ryan Madson walked Steve Pearce to tie the game before Martinez, who had 130 RBIs in the regular season, dropped a flare in front of right fielder Yasiel Puig for a two-run single that gave Boston a 4-2 lead.

BIG FINISH

Price and three relievers retired the last 16 Los Angeles batters, with Craig Kimbrel closing out the Dodgers in the ninth for his sixth save this postseason . Not since Don Larsen’s 1956 perfect game for the Yankees against the Brooklyn Dodgers has an AL team retired as many consecutive hitters to finish a World Series game, according to STATS.

“We had him. We had him on the ropes,” Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts said. “The difference is they got the big hit when they needed, and we didn’t.”

Boston’s other run came on Kinsler’s two-out single in the second. The Red Sox, who led the majors in two-out runs in the regular season, have scored 36 of their 68 runs this postseason — and nine of their 12 in the Series — with two outs.

IN A HOLE

The last 10 teams to win the first two games of the World Series — and 16 of the last 17 — have gone on to win it all. And the NL West champions will need to do it against a team that has won six straight postseason games and five in a row on the road.

“We’re just in the middle of the World Series,” Dodgers first baseman David Freese said. “We’re down 2-0, we get that. We just understand that Game 3 is a necessity, just like Game 2.”

GREAT CATCH

One night after getting four hits, Red Sox left fielder Andrew Benintendi made a leaping, spread-eagle catch to rob Brian Dozier of an extra-base hit leading off the fifth. With the ball tailing away from him toward the corner, Benintendi jumped, kicked and pulled it in a few feet in front of the Green Monster scoreboard.

“Me and Mookie work on our ballet a lot, especially in spring training,” Benintendi said.

Dodgers center fielder Cody Bellinger may have done him one better, sliding under Martinez’s long drive to make a nice grab in the eighth.

UP NEXT

The teams head to the West Coast for Game 3 at Dodger Stadium on Friday. Rookie right-hander Walker Buehler is scheduled to pitch for Los Angeles against likely Boston starter Rick Porcello.

The Beards, the Pitchers and a Rivalry Reborn. Here’s Your Guide to the Red Sox-Dodgers 2018 World Series

Let’s face it: the 2018 World Series, between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox, doesn’t exactly ooze charm. This matchup of coastal metropoles features the team with the highest team payroll in the league — Boston, at around $ 228 million — against a club clocking in at number three — the Dodgers, who shelled out nearly $ 200 million to win the National League pennant. Boston’s been awash in championships, and another one will spark millions of eye rolls outside of New England. Ever since the Curse of the Bambino ended when Boston won the World Series in 2004, the Sox have won two more titles, in 2007 and 2013. Over the past decade, each of Boston’s four major pro sports franchises has lifted at least one championship trophy.

Sure, the Dodgers haven’t won a World Series in 30 years. But Los Angeles is, well, Los Angeles. No one’s darling.

Still, this could be a terrific series. So stop obsessing over your fantasy football team or LeBron on the Lakers or the midterm elections or whatever you’re obsessing about, and enjoy the Fall Classic.

The World Series starts tonight. Here are few quick things to know:

Battle of the Beards. Each team has a talented player with bushy red stubble covering their faces. You can always pick a favorite and go from there. In Game 2 of the National League Championship Series, Los Angeles was six outs away from falling behind 0-2 to Milwaukee before Justin Turner hit a two-run home run that gave the Dodgers a 4-3 lead. Los Angeles won the game, and the series in seven. Turner’s do has inspired Halloween costumes, and this year he was nominated for MLB’s Roberto Clemente Award thanks to his off-the-field philanthropy. Boston’s bearded closer Craig Kimbrel hunches over and dangles his right arm like a bat’s wing before every pitch. He’s also struggled for much of this post-season, giving up runs in four straight playoff games before he quieted the Houston Astros in Game 5 of the American League Championship Series and closed out that series. According to former Red Sox reliever Eric Gagne, Kimbrel had been tipping his pitches: he texted this info to Boston manager Alex Cora, who passed it along to Kimbrel before his effective outing. As a player, Gagne enjoyed his best years in Los Angeles. After sharing info that could have given the Dodgers and advantage, no one’s buying Gagne any Dodger Dogs.

About That Drought. If any team’s due for a World Series title, it’s Los Angeles. Although the Dodgers haven’t won a championship in three decades, LA’s reached the playoffs a dozen times since ’88, and won the National League West six years running, falling just a game short against the Houston Astros in last year’s World Series. You’ll be sure to see many 30th anniversary replays of Kirk Gibson’s legendary home run in the bottom of the ninth of Game 1 of the 1988 World Series, when the injured slugger gave LA a walk-off win against the heavily favored Oakland A’s. (The Dodgers won the Series in five games). Poor Dennis Eckersley. The former Oakland reliever made the Hall of Fame, but at this point may be better known for giving up that homer to Gibson. Eckersley’s now a broadcaster… for the Red Sox.

Price Is (Finally) Right? Both teams have top-shelf starting pitchers that can keep the games tight. For Los Angeles, Clayton Kershaw’s likely headed to the Hall of Fame: he won Game 5 of the NLCS against Milwaukee then closed out Game 7 — and the NL pennant — with a quick inning of work. He’ll face Boston ace Chris Sale in tonight’s Game 1. But it’s the performance of another starter that’s giving Boston hope. David Price has struggled in the postseason; against Houston in Game 5 of the ALCS, however, Price pitched six shutout innings, and struck out nine Astros, leading Boston to a series-clinching victory. Price will start Game 2 against of the World Series, on Wednesday night.

Manny Being Manny. The Dodgers won the trade deadline this summer, when LA acquired Baltimore shortstop Manny Machado — one of the transcendent talents in the game — for five prospects. Look for Boston’s fans, never a reticent lot, to boo him hard. You see, a season ago Machado drove his spikes into the knee of Boston’s Justin Pedroia on a slide. Boston retaliated by throwing at Machado, and Machado hurled about 100 F’bombs at the Red Sox. In the ALCS, Milwaukee’s Christian Yelich called Machado a “dirty player” due to some of his baserunning habits (like appearing to kick people). Machado will sign a monster contract somewhere after this season. But LA’s trade deadline bet has paid off: the Dodgers, with Machado in tow, are back in the Fall Classic.

Rivalry Reborn? Fans might not remember the prior Fall Classic between these two franchises, in 1916 : the Red Sox faced the Brooklyn Robins, who became the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1932, who became the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1958. The Sox beat the Robins in five. Boston and LA forged a legendary basketball rivalry, as the Celtics have met the Los Angeles Lakers 11 times in the NBA Finals, with the Celtics winning eight of those meetings (Boston also defeated the Minneapolis Lakers in the 1959 Finals). Boston’s fans hated LA so much, they implored the Philadelphia 76ers to “Beat LA! Beat LA!” as Philly knocked the Celtics out of the 1982 playoffs. (The Lakers beat the Sixers in the Finals that year). Like it or not, both baseball teams have the money and talent to make return trips to the World Series. If Boston-LA is a budding baseball rivalry, let’s just hope for a stellar first act.

Beautiful canyons of the world

ADVERTISEMENT


There is something magical about standing at the edge of a canyon, seeing something so enormous stretching out in front of you – a size you can only imagine! Although these cavernous cracks in the Earth seem like a once in a lifetime sight, there are actually several incredible canyons around the world, and here are five of the most breathtakingly beautiful that you absolutely must see.

Grand Canyon, USA

Probably the most well-known of all canyons, the Grand Canyon is actually one of the Seven Wonders of the World, and if you have ever been, it will be easy to see why. This beautiful sight sees over five million visitors every year, come to marvel the 6000 foot deep, 277 miles long and 18 miles wide canyon. A fantastic view, it is one of the most accessible Canyons and offers hikes, mule rides, and even helicopter tours. Very popular with tourists, there are local hotels right on the rim to stay in, plus museums and education centers based around some of the canyon’s history. On the Vegas side, there is even a huge see-through ledge which gives the feeling of floating right out above the canyon. Not for the faint of heart!

Colca Canyon, Peru

A whopping 13,650 feet deep, Peru’s Colca Canyon is twice as deep as the Grand Canyon! This colorful, 45 mile-long canyon is steeped in Inca and pre-Inca cultural history and still, today maintains ancestral traditions of indigenous people, making it an incredible place to behold. There are plenty of things to keep you busy on this canyon, aside from just the views, as it is home to the endangered condors which can often be spotted. There are plenty of photograph opportunities, including being able to have your photograph taken holding a hawk or a baby Alpaca, and local villagers sell trinkets for tourists to buy.

Copper Canyon, Mexico

In Mexico, you will find the stunning Copper Canyon, which is part of the Barrancas del Cobre, created by six rivers. The best way to enjoy this canyon is on the Copper Canyon Railway which runs 400 miles from Chihuahua to Los Mochis and on its 16-hour journey, climbs over 8,000 feet, across 36 bridges and through 87 tunnels! If you want to explore Copper Canyon on foot, it is advised that you hire a guide as the trails are not mapped nor signposted.

Verdon Gorge, France

A Canyon may not be the first thing that springs to mind when you picture visiting France, but it really is worth the trip to see this incredible turquoise Canyon in South East France! Right by the French Riviera, this Canyon is a haven for hikers, kayakers, and rock climbers – in fact, there are over 1500 routes that have been developed across this 13-mile long canyon! The Verdon Gorge is often given the accolade of Europe’s most beautiful canyon, and it would be difficult to disagree.

River Fish Canyon

An often-photographed beauty, the Fish River Canyon really is breathtaking! It is the largest canyon in Africa at 100 miles long, 18 miles wide and an incredible 1,800 feet deep, making a very popular 54-mile hike, known as The Fish River Canyon Trail. These factors make it the second-most popular tourist attraction in Namibia, second only to Etosha National Park.

These canyons are truly a wondrous feat of nature; they are absolutely stunning. The sheer scale of them takes your breath away; you need to visit at least one of these epic landmarks on your journeys.

The most beautiful shopping malls around the world

ADVERTISEMENT


When you go out for your weekly shop, or to buy your annual wardrobe (yes, I’m talking about you, men!) you probably just venture to your local mall, with your budget department stores and your food market. You probably don’t expect to be greeted with gondola rides, rollercoasters, or giant aquariums, do you? Well, in certain parts of the world this could be your local shopping mall. Bet you’re regretting your house location now. Let’s all move to Dubai!

Dubai Mall – Dubai, United Arab Emirates

If you’ve ever been to Dubai or the United Arab Emirates, you’ll know that they don’t do anything by halves. Everything is excessive, everything is elegant, everything is clean, and everything is beautiful. Including the shopping malls. As well as being one of the most beautiful malls in the world, the Dubai Mall is also the largest in the world and comes complete with 1,200 shops to its name, an Aquarium and Discovery Center, an ice rink, a theme park, a 22-screen cinema, the largest candy store in the world, an interactive children’s center, and one of the most spectacular indoor fountains on the planet! Not much, then…

The Grand Canal Shoppes – Las Vegas, United States of America

Don’t worry if you’ve never visited Venice because you won’t need to if you take a trip to the Palazzo Hotel in Las Vegas! This Venetian-themed hotel comes complete with its very own Grand Canal Shoppes featuring incredible waterways, which you can travel using Gondolas – with your very own Gondola driver who might even sing for you if you’re lucky. The mall offers 91 shops connected by cobbled streets and a moving clouded ceiling. And of course, no Venetian street would be complete without street performers.

Canal City – Fukuoka, Japan

Just like the Grand Canal Shoppes in Las Vegas, Canal City shopping mall in Japan has based its mall around incredible canals. The canals serve as the main event in this mall, with the shops built as if they surround the water. But these buildings aren’t your typical run of the mill two-up two-down buildings. Instead, they are all curved, with water features, fountains, and sculptures which have been designed and constructed to trick the eyes of its visitors. As well as some of the most prestigious shops and brands, the mall also houses art exhibitions, gaming centers, cinemas, a music stadium – and the piece de resistance is the fifth floor of the mall which is solely dedicated to ramen! Time to tuck in.

Berjaya Times Square – Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Despite the fact the Berjaya Times Square shopping mall in Malaysia is Asia’s largest shopping mall, the grandiose mall is actually designed around the streets and bright lights of New York’s Times Square. With a makeshift subway station, big billboards and bright signs, you could easily mistake it for the Big Apple! The shopping mall offers its visitors over 1000 stores, as well as an incredible indoor theme park complete with roller coasters (yep, inside), a haunted house, and more. As if it wasn’t already pretty epic, the mall also throws in the extra awesomeness of a giant musical staircase to entertain you (and your kids) for hours.

West Edmonton Mall – Edmonton, Canada

The West Edmonton Mall is one of the most beautiful malls in the world because it is one of the most unexpected. As you walk through the doors, you’re bombarded with a huge area full of fun and activities. As well as the obvious stores and food halls, this mall offers the largest indoor waterpark in the world, complete with a wave pool and 83-foot tall water slide, an ice rink, a lake which features sea lions, a mini-golf course, a shooting range, bowling alley, arcade, music Stadium, a chapel and an indoor theme park! Could you need anything else?
