It's that time of year again, when we look back at the film offerings over the past 12 months. There were quite a few musical offerings this year as well as true story movies. We've gone well beyond our top 10 taking in a few of our family favourites, hard hitters and big box office hits. The year started strong with Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and continued with A Star is Born - seeing Lady Gaga give a performance edging her into place for an award win. There was also Alfonso Cuaron's Roma, which dropped on Netflix. Netflix has given us quite a few strong contenders this year. The much-anticipated Avengers: Infinity War packed a punch too, in fact Marvel and Disney continued to storm the box office. Disney also won big with Incredibles 2 and Wreck it Ralph. Horror also had a good year, with Halloween, Hereditary and A Quiet Place, starring Emily Blunt - who also starred in Mary Poppins Returns. We've put together our rankings for the best movies of 2018. Note this is … [Read more...] about Best films of 2018 ranked

0 Have your say AFTER seeing Leeds United's winning run finally ended, the YEP's Lee Sobot looks at a few key talking points from Saturday's 2-0 loss at home to Hull City. Dominating the stats but not the one that mattersSaturday's game is a hard one to assess as United had 77 per cent of possession but also 22 shots on goal compared to Hull's nine and seven on target as opposed to City's three.They are not statistics befitting a 2-0 defeat yet it would be hard to say that Hull did not merit their victory and even Whites centre-back Pontus Jansson took to social media on Saturday evening to admit that the Tigers were "well deserved" of their win.In short, as is clear from the statistics, Hull simply took their chances through the impressive Jarrod Bowen and ultimately defended better, including when clearing three Leeds efforts off the line.On another day, the contest might have ended up with Leeds getting at least a share of the spoils but even Adam Forshaw … [Read more...] about Leeds United 0 Hull City 2: Run is over but lights out at Norwich; what to do in January and when will Jack Clarke finally start?
This was the 20th year I have taught a subject called sports law. Starting out nervously in 1998 at the University of Limerick, I remember giving a public seminar on the topic at the end of which a leading academic in sociology contemptuously summarised that sport was irrelevant, unworthy of academic study, and I should go into legal practice.My reaction was a bit like that of the Thomond Park crowd to an opposition kicker lining up to take an undeserved penalty — silent, seething, and slightly vengeful.It was a very thorough, very public, and very unnecessary humiliation that was an all too often a feature of academia then, not so much now.It was also a profoundly ignorant statement on sport then, as it is now.Of course, the endless “chatter”, to use Umberto Eco’s 50-year-old phrase, that surrounds sport — nowadays taking the form of 24/7 sports news channels, websites, podcasts, social media etc — can get tedious and lack perspective. Eco’s … [Read more...] about Sport offering a mirror to society and its ills
Cydney Henderson USA TODAY Published 7:51 PM EST Dec 6, 2018 Will it be love at first sight for Colton Underwood? The former NFL player, 26, is a cast-off from Becca Kufrin's season of "The Bachelorette" and also appeared on this summer's "Bachelor in Paradise." But maybe it just takes him being the leading man of ABC's reality show to find lasting love? Although Twitter wasn't too pleased with Underwood's selection as the new "Bachelor," the 30 ladies vying for his heart on ABC's 23rd season are a different story. From a dog walker to a self-proclaimed sloth and a woman that has never been kissed, the competition between contestants is surely going to make for good TV and hopefully a future wife for Underwood. Underwood revealed on "The Bachelorette" that he is a virgin saving himself for the "right heart," a fact that has drawn some teasing from fellow contestants. Despite the jeers, he has stayed true to his beliefs and has made … [Read more...] about ‘The Bachelor:’ Meet the 30 ladies vying for Colton Underwood’s heart
Jefferson Graham USA TODAY Published 8:33 AM EST Nov 26, 2018 VENICE BEACH, Calif. – There's more to life than Amazon. That's what online shoppers tell us. "I just can’t really find certain things on Amazon that I'm looking for," says shopper Monica Galvan of Dallas. "There’s a certain fit of pants that I like to find." She prefers the fashion site Anthropologie. Despite being a dominant online shopping destination, Amazon doesn't have everything. For instance, if you're looking for Google's new Home Hub video speaker – or any other Google product, for that matter – you're not going to find it. Amazon doesn't sell Google products. In an exclusive SurveyMonkey/Audience poll for USA TODAY, over 1,000 shoppers told us where they spent money when they didn't visit Amazon. Mostly, websites for traditional retailers topped the list. Walmart was the clear runner-up, with 21% of poll respondents, compared to 17% for eBay, 15% for … [Read more...] about Want to shop online? Here’s a look at alternatives to buying on Amazon
