RIO — O que é que a Alicia tem? Tem dread colorido, tem. Macacão cintilante, tem. Toca piano bem. E canta como ninguém. Em sua volta ao Rock in Rio, onde se apresentou em 2013, a cantora nova-iorquina de 36 anos mostrou que uniu sua competência musical ao carisma, à simpatia e à segurança de uma artista completa. Ao piano, ela comandou uma banda azeitada em sucessos e músicas menos conhecidas, recebeu o Dream Team do Passinho e ainda se engajou na luta pela preservação da Amazônia.
O show começou com alguns minutos de atraso, e logo ao fim primeira música, "28 thousand days", Alicia comandou uma jam session de samba-jazz com seus músicos.
— A noite é de celebração — avisou ela, que parecia feliz e à vontade desde o começo.
Do improviso com os músicos ela partiu para a levada reggae de "You don't know my name". O som de Alicia Keys é de difícil rotulação. É pop, soul, tem uma base no jazz, no gospel, às vezes passeia por outros gêneros.

eymar x Cavani: briga de egos por causa de faltas e pênaltis preocupa o PSG

Neymar x Cavani: briga de egos por causa de faltas e pênaltis preocupa o PSG
A sintonia fina - em todos os aspectos - que Neymar tinha com Messi e Suárez no Barcelona não está se repetindo no Paris Saint-Germain. Pelo menos em relação a Cavani. A questão não são os resultados, que estão aparecendo, e sim a nítida falta de parceria entre os dois. As tabelas até saem, mas a disputa para cobrar pênaltis e faltas gerou uma briga de egos, que não está sendo devidamente controlada pelo técnico Unai Emery. A situação preocupa a diretoria do PSG, que ligou o sinal de alerta e pretende conversar internamente para evitar o crescimento do problema.

Lesson learned: The Falcons (and Sarkisian) ran the ball at the end!


With 8:30 remaining in Houston, the Atlanta Falcons led 28-12 and faced third-and-1 at their 36-yard line. Kyle Shanahan called a pass. Devonta Freeman missed the blitzing Dont’a Hightower, who divested Matt Ryan from the ball. If you’re looking for the single most egregious moment in the greatest collapse in Super Bowl history, there it is.
With 4:54 remaining in Sunday night’s game against Green Bay, the Falcons led 34-23 and faced third-and-1 at their 36. Steve Sarkisian called a run, and not just any run. He had his MVP quarterback station himself as a wide receiver. Mohamed Sanu, once a college quarterback but now almost exclusively a wideout, took a direct snap from the Wildcat formation. Sanu handed the ball to Freeman, who gained eight yards up the gut.
Granted, it would have taken a lot for the Falcons not to win Sunday night. They’d led 31-7 and 34-10. But they’d led the Super Bowl by even more — citing the most famous partial score in NFL annals: 28-3 — and contrived not to win. But after taking that 25-point lead with 8-1/2 minutes remaining in the third quarter, the Falcons ran the ball four times, which still beggars belief. Here, however, is what the Falcons did against Green Bay:
On their first possession after assuming a 24-point lead, their first four plays were runs. Only after they crossed midfield did Sarkisian order a pass. This series would end in Matt Bryant’s 51-yard field goal. The Falcons held the ball for 5:14.
On their next possession, their lead having been reduced to 18 points, they ran four times before throwing an incompletion. They punted after holding the ball for 3:07.
On their next possession, the lead down to 11, six of their nine snaps were runs, the Sanu Wildcat moment included. Two of the three passes came after they’d been penalized for false starts (first Austin Hooper, then Andy Levitre) and needed more than 10 yards for a first down. They wound up punting after keeping the ball for 4:49 and leaving Aaron Rodgers with 62 seconds to override an 11-point lead. He couldn’t.
This was game management at something approaching its best. It was game management of the sort unseen on Feb. 5. No, the Packers’ defense isn’t as stout as the Patriots’, but still: In his first big test as offensive coordinator, Sarkisian put aside his ego — pass plays mean bigger offensive numbers, and coordinators live by their numbers — and doubled down on prudence.
After assuming a 24-point lead, the Falcons ran it 14 times against eight passes (plus one sack). If that didn’t placate those fans who always see running plays as nothing burgers, there could be no arguing with the result. The Falcons won by double digits and showed that, from the loss that can never be banished from this franchise’s careening history, they’d at least learned something.
Full disclosure: When I heard the Falcons’ latest slogan — All Gas, No Brakes — I cringed even more than when I hear any of their slogans. This one seemed oblivious to recent infamy. Dan Quinn’s mantra of Staying Aggressive ultimately denied his team a Lombardi Trophy. But, after Sunday night, I’m much relieved. Apparently No Brakes doesn’t mean No Brains.
The belief here is that Sarkisian’s offense will never hit the heights that Shanahan’s did (until, alas, it didn’t). But the Falcons needed to score in bunches last year because their defense was nothing special until Quinn took hold of it late in the season. This defense is capable of holding up its end and even winning the occasional game. This team shouldn’t need 40 points to feel safe.
Sarkisian called a nice game in helping the Falcons assume that 24-point lead. What he did afterward was even better. Color me impressed.

Sarah Hyland y Ariel Winter fueron dos de las “peores vestidas” de los Emmy


Foto: La Vanguardia / Cortesía
(Caracas, 18 de septiembre. Noticias24).- Durante la celebración de la gala de los Emmy 2017, Sarah Hyland y Ariel Winter, hermanas en “Modern Famil”, pusieron toda la carne en el asador y acabaron teniendo algún desliz.
Sarah Hyland (26 años) acudió a la ceremonia con un vestido rojo de encaje de Zac Posen con una apertura en la parte central. Dejó al aire parte de su vientre y algo más que ella quería evitar. El look generó muchos comentarios relacionados sobre si era o no adecuado para los Emmy por sus transparencias, pero las críticas hicieron énfasis en que se descuidó y dejó a la vista la faja.
La ropa interior de la actriz, de color negro, contrastó mucho con el vestido rojo y, aunque solo sobresalía unos milímetros, quedó fácilmente apreciable. Un fallo que ha hecho que numerosos críticos la sitúen entre las peores vestidas de la noche.

11 Famosas casadas com homens bem mais velhos

Claro que nós mulheres sabemos que na sociedade em que vivemos, somos julgadas por quase todas as nossas escolhas, veja por exemplo:

Os homens não costumam ser questionados quando namoram mulheres mais jovens que eles, e suas atitudes dificilmente são julgadas, muito pelo contrário, provavelmente eles se sentirão muito orgulhosos pela conquista, já que uma mulher mais jovem pode exibir uma vitalidademaior em relação a uma de sua idade.

Se a caso o relacionamento for com uma mulher mais velha, eles continuarão se gabando, e exaltando o fato de ser ela, uma mulher muito experiente.
Mas o que acontece quando é o contrário? Como a sociedade ou a própria mulher vê a diferença de idade? Será que de modo positivo ou negativo? Bem, segundo uma pesquisa realizada em base de entrevistas com mulheres que se relacionaram ou se relacionam com homens mais velhos, foi comprovado que sim, “maturidade é afrodisíaco“. Obviamente tudo vai depender do que se espera de uma relação.

Homens maduros podem ser muito charmosos, e para algumas famosas isso conta muito na hora de escolher um companheiro, e algumas até preferem que o homem tenha uma grande experiência de vida para compartilhar, do que beleza e um corpo definido.

Vamos conhecer as famosas que optaram por homens mais velhos.

Billy Joe Saunders wants Amir Khan fight after Willie Monroe Jr victory: I want big fight

Billy Joe Saunders successfully defended his title against WIllie Monroe Jr

The WBO middleweight champion successfully defended his belt with a unanimous points win over American Willie Monroe Jr at the Copper Box Arena on Saturday.

He could yet land a unification clash with Gennady Golovkin if the Kazakh star is keen to have another fight before the end of the year following his controversial draw with Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez.
But Saunders would also welcome a clash with Khan, with both men scheduled to box in December.
“If Khan’s looking for a big UK fight then I’m willing to fight him,” said Saunders. “I just want a good fight, a big fight, that’s what I’m in boxing for.
“Khan’s a very good name and I rate him. I don’t call his name out being disrespectful to him. I call it because I think he’s a good fighter.”

Jennifer Lopez, 48, flaunts peachy bottom as she gyrates in EYE-POPPING sparkly leotard

The hitmaker’s incredible curves and flexibility were very much on display as she performed to a sold-out crowd.
Wearing her tresses down in a natural wave, the 46-year-old turned heads for all the right reasons in a barely-there leotard.
Jennifer’s famous derrière took centre-stage as she danced energetically in the glitzy frock, which left little the imagination.
With her bottom facing the audience, the mother-of-two happily shook her assets in the backless one-piece.

Boxing news: Canelo asked to trim beard, Saunders eyes GGG fight, Eubank doubts Smith

BOXING NEWS tonight ahead of the epic Canelo vs GGG showdown features Saul “Canelo” Alvarez’s beard, Billy Joe Saunders taking on Gennady “GGG” Golovkin and Chris Eubank Jr challenging Callum Smith.

Gennady Golovkin’s trainer Abel Sanchez has once again voiced his concerns about Canelo Alvarez’s beard.
Sanchez said of the Mexican’s facial hair at Friday’s weigh-in that “it’s a little bit longer than it should be.”
The trainer repeated his concern to the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) with critics suggestion that he was worried Golovkin’s blows might be cushioned by the extra hair.
But Sanchez insisted his concerns were valid and related to if the beard might cause problems when the fighters are in close.

Arsenal’s desire epitomised by Shkodran Mustafi in well-deserved draw

For a split second, it looked as though Arsenal had done it. Shkodran Mustafi – excellent in the heart of their defence – had leapt to meet Granit Xhaka’s 75th‑minute free-kick and then the ball was in the net and he was wheeling away in celebration. One fan in the away end lost himself in the moment. He had come on to the pitch and was leaping about like a madman.
The offside flag from the assistant referee on the far side stopped the scene in its tracks. Mustafi felt his pulse slow and the supporter, who had jumped back over the barrier, was fished out and led away by the stewards.
It was an afternoon when Arsenal almost secured the big away win they craved but one that, in the final analysis, contained a lot more good than bad – which is not something that has been said too regularly about them of late on this sort of occasion.

By the end Wayne Rooney could probably be forgiven for wondering what kind of adventures he might be missing with his old team. He had heard his name sung and, before he disappeared into the tunnel, there was a little, polite wave of appreciation. Yet Rooney wore the look of a man whose return to Old Trafford had felt like an ordeal and he can never have imagined there would come a time when he would find himself in the away dressing room ruminating on what it is like to be in the relegation zone.
The paradox is that this was not always the fluent, dangerous Manchester United that has been seen in other parts in the new season and it felt slightly perplexing that José Mourinho described it as their best performance so far. Indeed, for a long part of the second half they had flirted with the idea of letting their opponents back into the match and there was clear evidence of how much they would miss the injured Paul Pogba.




The Handmaid’s Tale wins Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series



Hulu took home the Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series tonight, won by Bruce Miller for “Offred,” the pilot of The Handmaid’s Tale.
The streaming service made a poor showing at last year’s awards, netting just two nominations and no wins. This year it received 18 nominations, 13 of which were for the critically acclaimed adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s classic 1985 dystopian thriller.
The Handmaid’s Tale is also nominated for Outstanding Drama Series and several acting awards, to be announced later tonight, and Alexis Bledel already took home the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama award earlier this week at the Creative Arts portion of the awards.
Accepting the award, Miller thanked Hulu and said that the Emmy “really belongs to three women: Reed Morano, who directed the pilot episode of The Handmaid’s Tale. To Margaret Atwood, who scared the living crap out of my when I was in college. And to Lizzie Moss, who leaves me speechless.” (Elizabeth Moss is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.)
Tonight marks a big milestone for the service, which has a little more than a third of the original content budget that Netflix has, and is just now making the same plays for prestige that its rival has been making since House of Cards debuted in 2013. When the nominations were announced, Handmaid’s Tale executive producer Warren Littlefield told Vanity Fair, “This is an acknowledgement of where streaming content is in the world. We no longer say ‘networks,’ we talk about ‘platforms.’ Hulu gets to stand tall with not only offering classic television, but they’ve stood up to say, ‘We’re power players in original content.’”
The pilot episode of The Handmaid’s Tale was up against nominated episodes from FX’s The Americans, AMC’s Better Call Saul, Netflix’s The Crown and Stranger Things, and HBO’s Westworld.
