Facebook is releasing the content of around 3,000 adverts bought by Russian interests to Congressional investigators, saying it was "actively working" with the US government on the probe into Russian interference in the presidential election. The move comes just weeks after the social media giant revealed a group based in Russia had spent at least $100,000 (£74,000) on adverts on Facebook in a bid to influence the US vote. In a Facebook post and a live video, chief executive Mark Zuckerberg said he had directed 3,000 Russian-bought adverts to be released to Congress. "We support Congress in deciding how to best use this information to inform the public and we expect the government to publish its finding when the investigation is complete," Mr Zuckerberg said. "We will work with others to create a new standard for transparency for online political ads." He said Facebook "won't catch everyone immediately", but instead can "make it harder to try to interfere". Facebook … [Read more...] about Facebook releasing 3,000 Russian-bought adverts to Congress

Scenes of distress and emotion were witnessed at her funeral the following week — but when was it and what has been said about the tragic ceremony since? Princess Diana was laid to rest on 6 September 1997 exactly a week after her horror car crash in Paris. As many as 2,000 people attended the ceremony in Westminster Abbey, where her coffin was brought on a gun carriage from Kensington Palace. Although it was not an official state funeral, a full deployment of royal pageantry characterised the sombre ceremony. As the coffin made the 1hr 47min journey from Kensington Palace to Westminster Abbey, distraught young Princes William and Harry walked behind along with Prince Charles, Prince Philip and Diana’s brother Earl Charles Spencer. The streets were lined with more than 1million people, many of whom lay flowers along the procession route which passed Buckingham … [Read more...] about When was Princess Diana’s funeral and what have Princes William and Harry said?
“I can remember goalkeepers in my younger days (eg Pat Jennings) occasionally playing without gloves,” writes Tony Crawford. “Is there a goalkeeper in any of the top leagues who still plays without gloves? If not, who was the last goalkeeper to regularly play without them?” There is nothing in Fifa’s rulebook which states goalkeepers have to wear gloves at all. Roland Burton, a former goalkeeper himself (with Surrey Saints in the Redhill & District third division, no less) steams straight in: “In Portugal’s penalty shoot-out with England at Euro 2004, goalkeeper Ricardo jettisoned his gloves to face Darius Vassell’s spot-kick. Not only did he save the penalty bare-handed, he then stepped up to smash Portugal’s next kick past David James to win the match.” Ricardo revealed in an interview shortly after the game that it was nothing more than mind-games. “I felt that I had to do something after conceding three penalties … [Read more...] about When was the last time a top-flight goalkeeper played without gloves?
“In recent years the reigning Premier League champions have been featured on TV in the UK during the first weekend of the season, but this year Chelsea’s match with Burnley is a Saturday 3pm kick-off,” writes Mike Coxon. “When was the last time a reigning champion wasn’t on TV the first weekend of the season? For my money it would be the famous Wimbledon v Manchester United game featuring that goal from David Beckham.” Well, it did involve a famous contribution from a United No7, but it wasn’t Beckham. The last time this occurred was in 2003-04, when Manchester United beat Bolton 4-0. The game is remembered for a dazzling debut by the teenage substitute Cristiano Ronaldo, who had signed from Sporting Lisbon a few days earlier. The live matches on Sky and Premiership Plus that weekend were newly promoted Portsmouth v Aston Villa, Leeds v Newcastle and Liverpool v Chelsea (who had just been bought by Roman Abramovich). It was common in the early … [Read more...] about When was the last time the champions’ opening game was not televised?

CELEBRATIONS are set to take place across the country to mark the 50th anniversary of homosexuality being legalised in the UK. Before 1967 gay men could be sentenced to up to two years in prison under gross indecency laws. Here’s everything you need to know. The first step to decriminalise homosexuality in the UK was taken in 1967 when the Sexual Offences Act 1967 legalised private acts between men aged over 21. Legal changes only applied in England and Wales. Homosexuality was legalised in Scotland in 1980 and in Northern Ireland in 1981. In 1994 the age of consent for homosexual men was reduced to 18 and in 2000 to 16 – the same as that for heterosexual couples. In 1885 the Labouchere Amendment introduced the crime of gross indecency, which was used to prosecute gay men until it was repealed in 1967. Men convicted under the act could be imprisoned for up to two years, with or without hard labour. It is estimated about 49,000 men were convicted including Alan Turing, … [Read more...] about When was homosexuality legalised in the UK?
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) today announced that Hillsborough match commander David Duckenfield, former chief constable Sir Norman Bettison and four others have been charged. Sue Hemming, head of the special crime and counter-terrorism division, said Duckenfield has been charged with the manslaughter, by gross negligence, of 95 of the 96 Liverpool FC fans who died. She said: "We will allege that David Duckenfield's failures to discharge his personal responsibility were extraordinarily bad and contributed substantially to the deaths of each of those 96 people who so tragically and unnecessarily lost their lives.” But she added: “We are unable to charge the manslaughter of Anthony Bland, the 96th casualty, as he died almost four years later.” Bettison is charged with four counts of misconduct in public office relating to telling alleged lies about his involvement in the aftermath of Hillsborough and the culpability of fans.Former South … [Read more...] about When was the Hillsborough disaster?

That is a question the claret and blue faithful are optimistically asking themselves ahead of tonight’s trip to take on Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium. It won’t be easier against David Wagner’s promotion hopefuls who will be anxious to bounce back from their weekend defeat to Newcastle United. But three wins on the spin against Derby County and Bristol City at Villa Park and Rotherham United at the New York Stadium will have been a major confidence booster for Villa.

A survey carried out ahead of Random Act of Kindness Day on Friday showed that a huge 48% of Newcastle residents perform a good deed at least once a day. The impressive figure is well above the national average of 19%.

Paris is aggressively lobbying British-based banks, financial services institutions, and investors to move to the French capital, as Brexit forces many to look elsewhere for a European headquarters. Interestingly, lobbyists are not just talking up Paris' business environment but also its culture, cooking, healthcare — even alluding to the city's fame as a great spot for a romantic getaway. "When was the last time you took your partner off for a weekend in Frankfurt?" Valerie Pecresse, president of the Paris region, told a press conference in London on Monday. As well as alluding to Paris' reputation as the city of love, it was a sly dig at the German city seen as Paris' nearest rival for post-Brexit job relocation. Pecresse said: "French executives don't just work 35 hours a week, obviously... There is quality of life. If you want to live somewhere, you look at [all facets] of quality of life. Of cooking, of healthcare, of children's care. In this aspect, I think Paris can … [Read more...] about ‘When was the last time you took your partner off for a weekend in Frankfurt?’: Paris’ pitch to be the new heart of European finance

Emma Watson isn't the only one speaking out against sexism in Hollywood. Rob Lowe is lashing out against the objectification of men on television, according to a new interview with Vulture. The 51-year-old star of Fox's new comedy series, The Grinder, spoke candidly about how he feels male characters are poorly written on TV—all while calling out a Shonda Rhimes favorite. "People go on and on about the objectification of women, and rightly so," Lowe began. "But, what about the objectification of men? When was the last time you saw Grey's Anatomy?" The Parks and Recreation actor, who has played his fair share of quintessential heartthrobs since his first on-screen role in 1979, used his experience as a storied actor to shape the character he portrays on Fox's new show, which he also produces. "We did a whole sequence of why [Dean Sanderson] left The Grinder. And the reason he left is he felt objectified," Lowe revealed. So what I love about this show is these wry, insightful … [Read more...] about Rob Lowe Speaks Out Against Objectifying Men on Television: “When Was the Last Time You Saw Grey’s Anatomy?”
