In late March, five-star center Diamond Stone (Milwaukee, Wisc.) committed to Maryland over home-state program Wisconsin. This, obviously, did not please Badgers’ fans. Stone took a beating from various UW faithful on Twitter, message boards, etc. Wisconsin lost to Duke, 68-63, in the national championship game Monday night. This seems to please the future Terrapins’ big man. — All Eyes On Me (@Diamond_Stone33) April 7, 2015I LOVE — All Eyes On Me (@Diamond_Stone33) April 7, 2015They Do A lot Of Talking…— All Eyes On Me (@Diamond_Stone33) April 7, 2015Stone will get his chance to quiet the Wisconsin fans next season.

OTTAWA — EBay is calling on the federal government to legislate an end to the Canada Post contract dispute, warning that quick action is needed to ensure retailers don’t lose out on Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales.The manager of the online sales giant’s Canadian and Latin American divisions says continued rotating strikes at Canada Post will result in significant losses for small and medium-sized businesses across the country.While those businesses have adapted as best they can to the strikes that began Oct. 22, Andrea Stairs says in a letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau that the adjustments retailers have made so far to avoid delivery disruptions are unsustainable.Meanwhile, Canada Post says it is now facing an unprecedented backlog of shipments, largely as a result of strikes at its major sorting plants in Vancouver and particularly Toronto.A spokesman for the Crown corporation says that, as of this morning, there were more than 260 trailers filled with parcels waiting to be unloaded at its Gateway processing plant in Toronto — and that number is expected to rise quickly.The prime minister warned last week that his government would look at all options to end the labour dispute if there is no significant progress in Canada Post’s contract talks with the Canadian Union of Postal Workers.The Canadian Press
MEXICO CITY — Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador says the country loses $2.5 to $3.5 billion annually to fuel thieves who drill illegal taps into government pipelines.Lopez Obrador said Friday that “there still isn’t an exact figure” on the losses. The state-owned Petroleos Mexicanos company hasn’t given out new figures on pipeline taps since September. The last report indicated that 11,240 taps were found in the first nine months of 2018, or about 41 per day.The illicit fuel-theft industry involves drilling taps, bribing or threatening oil company employees, stealing tank trucks to carry the fuel and turf battles between rival gangs.That has caused a surge in the number of homicides in states like Guanajuato, where fuel theft is rampant.Lopez Obrador has promised stiffer punishments for the crime.The Associated Press

Ghosn has been charged with breach of trust and falsifying financial reports in underreporting his income from Nissan.Masuko and Nissan Chief Hiroto Saikawa were directors at the joint venture called NMBV, along with Ghosn.The Associated Press

After the transmission of the Juventus vs Manchester United Champions League match, Arsene Wenger made a rare confession about Jose Mourinho.During his time as a manager for Arsenal, Arsene Wenger had a very heated rivalry with Sir Alex Ferguson first and Jose Mourinho after.The career that spanned throughout more than two decades with the Gunners, brought the French manager on many occasions in which he really became one of the Portuguese manager’s biggest enemies in football.There were even years in which both managers went after each other and kept a high insult count in every single time they had the chance to do it, but Wenger is out of the game right now and he doesn’t really need to criticize Jose Mourinho.Now that he lives as a retiree for the moment, Arsene can say what he really thinks about Jose Mourinho and the reaction we got during the match between Juventus and Manchester United was very surprising for everyone.Nobody expected that Arsene Wenger would praise the new Red Devils’ boss, but that is exactly what happened after they defeated Juventus at the Allianz Arena Stadium in Turin.It’s in this way that Jose Mourinho has also managed to turn the opinion of one of his biggest rivals in the Premier League.Wenger credits Mourinho with steadying the ship at #MUFC. #beINUCL pic.twitter.com/nwkfF5HZi4— beIN SPORTS (@beINSPORTS) November 7, 2018But if we look at the history that these two managers have during their rivalry in England, we can tell you that Jose Mourinho doesn’t really deserve such high praise from Wenger because his criticisms were almost always hurtful.Although the Frenchman is certainly responding to the Mourinho that praised him during the final days of his over two decades at Arsenal, that Jose was very respectful towards the long spell that Wenger had with the Gunners and to the legacy he left behind in English football.It’s to that man that Wenger s responding, which is why we understand the words he said to BeIN Sports as a pundit during the match.“It looks to me that against Everton and Bournemouth he turned his team on the right side in terms of the performance,” said Wenger.Daniel Farke, From mid-table in the Championship to the Premier League Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Norwich City manager, Daniel Farke, has taken his team from the middle of the table in the English Championship to play with the big boys in the Premier League.“His team was down and responded twice in a very positive way. Overall you can trust his quality and experience to get Manchester back on track.”“I don’t see him working everyday so I don’t know if he has changed or not. We had very heated confrontations so for me I don’t think his motivation has dropped.”EPL: Wenger Defends Mourinho, Asks Fans To Trust His Experience https://t.co/PRMsr8U5Cg pic.twitter.com/mY1faNNuud— Dove Bulletin (@dovebulletin) November 7, 2018Arsene Wenger is correct on one thing about Jose Mourinho, especially after this Wednesday’s victory against Juventus.The Portuguese manager has double confirmed that he has recovered the squad completely, they can now be considered a title contender without question and they will pose a huge threat to any other club from the Top 5 that thought they could beat the Red Devils.Next Sunday’s Manchester Derby will be one of the most exciting matches of the season, one from which the Portuguese manager cherishes great memories from the last time both squads faced in the Premier League.Maybe you don’t remember but, Jose Mourinho was good enough to prevent Manchester City to claim the Premier League title last season at Old Trafford, an event that could’ve scarred all Manchester United fans for many years to come.Just for this reason alone, the next Manchester Derby should be more than enough reason for anyone to cancel any plans they have and watch the whole 90 minutes of what promises to be an unforgettable day.Wenger: Mourinho turning things around at Man Utd #AFC https://t.co/SoUxmXAeqo pic.twitter.com/AV0m9llWPE— Arsenal Report (@Arsenal_Fanly) November 7, 2018What do you think about Arsene Wenger’s rare praise towards Jose Mourinho?

In a series of updates Thursday, the search giant is adding features to Google Assistant, Maps and its classic search to help you get your next meal. Partnering with delivery services including DoorDash, Postmates, Delivery.com, Slice and ChowNow, Google is enabling users in the US to order directly from search, Maps or Assistant as opposed to having to go to the respective apps for the restaurants of choice. An “order online” button will appear in search or Maps when the restaurant you’re looking for uses one of those services. Google says other services like Zuppler will be “coming soon.”You don’t need to have an account with any of the services to place an order and can instead simply use your Google account. Menus are all displayed in the apps, with Google also showing the minimum each service requires and the respective delivery fees. The ordering process is largely similar to the standalone apps, with options available to enter promo codes and change credit cards if needed at checkout. Ordering food from Google search Google The entire ordering experience is done through any of the three Google services. Food can be delivered or picked up. Google Pay, the company’s rival to Samsung Pay and Apple Pay, will also be able to handle payment.Placing a delivery order with Google Assistant Google Android and iOS users with the Google Assistant app can place orders or reorders using their voice by saying “Hey Google, order food from [restaurant]” or “Hey Google, reorder food from [restaurant].”Integrating food delivery is Google’s latest bid to expand its popular services, building on the company adding the ability last year to call an Uber or Lyft using Assistant. Google Maps allows you to see how much a ride would cost, but to order an Uber or Lyft you need to head to the respective app. Mobile Apps 0 Google Assistant Google Maps Google
Meghan MarkleGetty ImagesMeghan Markle is known for her vocal opinions. Especially when it comes to politics. The Duchess of Sussex made it quite clear how she feels about U.S. President Donald Trump. Even refusing to meet him when he came over to the U.K.Reportedly, Meghan has been warned her activism through her work as Duchess of Sussex may create “problems” for the Royal Family. It is being reported that after the Duchess of Sussex was revealed as a guest editor for Vogue issue focused on promoting female trailblazers, Meghan was warned against diving too close to the “political sphere.” Journalist Toby Young claimed the Duchess has been trying to make the Royal Family more aware of specific social issues. Meghan Markle was a popular actress in the US before her weddingAlberto E. Rodriguez/Getty ImagesSpeaking to talkRADIO, Mr. Young said: “The problem is his wife clearly has a particular political agenda – she is the woke Duchess and she sees it as her life’s work to make the Royal Family woke…..For a member of the Royal Family to take such an inadvertently political stance is always a bad idea because they are funded by the taxpayers and therefore they have an obligation to remain above the political sphere.”The Royal Family has to be neutral, especially when the country is in such turmoil. The Queen herself has been decisively detached, even when it came to her thoughts on Brexit. However, Meghan Markle isn’t the first Royal to show an interest in politics. Prince Charles has tried his hand at politics too. But Meghan isn’t trying to be a politician, she is already a Royal. But perhaps, she needs to use a lighter touch when spreading awareness. She is a member of the Royal Family after all. You can check out the video here:

It will have no effect in the elections. They (BJP) are going to polls relying upon paramilitary force but the TMC will contest on the basis of people’s support and strong organisational strenghth,” said state Transport and Environment minister Suvendu Adhikari. State Urban Development minister Firhad Hakim termed the transfer of officers as ‘showbazi’ on the part of the Commission. “BJP leaders like Narendra Modi and Amit Shah have been flouting the Model Code of Conduct of the EC taking credit in the name of the Indian Army but the Commission with limited powers is doing nothing. In an attempt to cover up for their limitations, they are transferring officers in Bengal.”
