El Chapo's family is planning to build a university in the town where the jailed drug kingpin was born. The school will be constructed in Badiraguato, Mexico, and is one of three projects the family is looking to launch with Joaquín 'El Chapo' Guzmán's cash that has been seized by the United States. They will also seek financial assistance from the Mexican government. Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador and El Chapo's mother Maria Consuelo Loera are expected to perform the groundbreaking ceremony. 'We are hoping that when President López Obrador makes his first visit to Sinaloa he will go to Badiraguato and lay the stone together with El Chapo's mother, María Consuelo, and work can finally begin on building the university,' family attorney, José Luis González Meza, said Friday. The family of Joaquín 'El Chapo' Guzmán (pictured) announced they will construct the first indigenous university in … [Read more...] about Fancy a degree from El Chapo UNIVERSITY?

We live inside the fantasies of old white men. In 2019, with the world in the grip of nostalgic strongmen, it makes sense that cinema would offer us the twin returns of Rambo and the Terminator, musclebound relics of the cold war 1980s. And so in the same stretch of autumn, Sylvester Stallone’s murderous everyman John Rambo has faced down the Mexican cartels in Rambo: Last Blood, with Arnold Schwarzenegger set to save humanity from cyborgs in Terminator: Dark Fate. It might pass for melancholy – two hugely wealthy actors in their 70s, bodies defiantly racked and pumped, Vladimir and Estragon on protein shakes, grimly refusing to retire. Then again, why would they? A crowd can still be pulled. Their influence runs deep into the present (the entire modern gym industry owes a piece of itself to the Übermensch self-improvement first championed by Schwarzenegger). But for their new movies, the present is not the point, the young are not the audience. The target demographic … [Read more...] about Rambo and the Terminator: the cold war warriors are back
‘How to talk about it? That’s been a struggle from the start.” Jeff Edwards, 58, pauses and shifts his weight in the armchair. We’re sitting in the front room of his house in Aberfan where for the past hour Jeff has been describing for me some of the difficulties experienced by the village in trying to negotiate the ongoing tightrope between memorial and healing, between sharing and silence, in the wake of the disaster that befell them 50 years ago. “Personally I found speaking about it better for me,” he continues, “in terms of my recovery. But other people, well, they just cannot speak about it at all.” It was the last Friday before half term – 21 October 1966 – and, like hundreds of other children across Aberfan, Jeff set off for school that day looking forward to the holiday ahead of him. School would finish early, at midday, after which lay the promise of a whole week of playing with his friends in the orchards and farmed … [Read more...] about Aberfan 50 years on: how best to remember the tragedy?
The world’s 50 biggest oil companies are poised to flood markets with an additional 7m barrels per day over the next decade, despite warnings from scientists that this will push global heating towards catastrophic levels. New research commissioned by the Guardian forecasts Shell and ExxonMobil will be among the leaders with a projected production increase of more than 35% between 2018 and 2030 – a sharper rise than over the previous 12 years. The acceleration is almost the opposite of the 45% reduction in carbon emissions by 2030 that scientists say is necessary to have any chance of holding global heating at a relatively safe level of 1.5C. The projections are by Rystad Energy, a Norwegian consultancy regarded as the gold standard for data in the industry. The rising trend they reveal highlights how major players seem to be ignoring government promises, scientific alarms and a growing public outcry so they can pump more fossil fuels – and profits – out of the … [Read more...] about Oil firms to pour extra 7m barrels per day into markets, data shows
Rebekah Vardy's dad today revealed his daughter is 'devastated' by Coleen Rooney's 'awful accusation' and insisted her Instagram account must have been hacked. Carlos Miranda said he has been left baffled as to why Coleen would accuse his daughter of selling stories about her to a newspaper 'without any proof whatsoever.' The 66-year-old said Rebekah has only ever had 'praise' for Wayne Rooney's wife and always thought the pair got on well. Speaking at his £500,000 detached bungalow in Bournemouth, Dorset, today Mr Miranda said: 'I can't believe a pro's wife would say something like that to another pro's wife without any proof whatsoever. Rebekah shared this picture with her dad cheering on husband Jamie at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. Carlos says he was with her this weekend and had no idea this was going to happen Coleen, (pictured today left) is embroiled in a bitter row with Rebekah (right) over Coleen's claims that her fellow WAG may have been selling stories about … [Read more...] about EXCLUSIVE: ‘I can’t believe Coleen can say this, especially when my daughter is pregnant’: Rebekah Vardy’s dad says she’s ‘completely devastated’ by feud, ‘only ever had praise’ for Coleen Rooney and claims her Instagram WAS hacked
