first_img“Sorry to put it bluntly but what is more important for us than the future of the U.K. is the future of Europe,” he said. “Any decision that gives European citizens the impression that you can leave the European Union and keep all the advantages would be suicidal.”Le Maire’s comments are in line with those of French President Emmanuel Macron, who told May at last week’s summit in Salzburg — where EU leaders shot down May’s Chequers proposal — that Brexit would not be “without a cost” or “consequences.””We want a deal with the British, and I think it is in everyone’s interest to have a good deal,” Le Maire said, adding that “Chequers is a move in the right direction” but that there needs to be a “comprehensive agreement, not one just on goods.”The minister also said France is preparing for a no-deal Brexit but added that current analysis suggests “the impact [of a hard Brexit] on French growth would be weak.” France’s finance minister has said allowing the U.K. to leave the European Union but hold on to the bloc’s advantages “would be suicidal,” and claimed Europe is more concerned with its own future than Britain’s.Theresa May’s Brexit strategy “doesn’t add up” and would spell the “end of Europe,” Bruno Le Maire said, according to an FT report published today.“If we give the idea that we can exit the European Union and keep all of the benefits of the single market, then it is the end of Europe,” the minister said.last_img read more

first_imgSmashing Pumpkins frontman and longtime wrestling fanatic Billy Corgan has been hired as Senior Producer, Creative and Talent Development for TNA Wrestling. Corgan will be responsible for developing characters and story lines for TNA’s flagship program Impact Wrestling.“Saying I’m humbled and honored by this opportunity to be part of TNA, a world-class wrestling organization, is an understatement and a dream come true,” he said in a statement. “What’s great is the entire TNA organization stands in full support of my music life with the Smashing Pumpkins.

first_img You know, typical bad guy stuff.It’s up to Hobbs and Shaw (Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham), the bickering buddies from the previous “Fast & the Furious” movies to put aside their macho posturing and come together so that they can save the world.You know, typical movie hero stuff. I don’t think that all of these characters necessarily merit movies of their own. Hobbs and Shaw, on the other hand, certainly deserve another adventure. Johnson and Statham have great charisma and they effortless handle any action sequence thrown at them.You know, movie hero stuff.Movie reviews by Sean, “The Movie Guy,” are each week in “The Port Arthur News” and seen weekly on KFDM and Fox4. Sean welcomes your comments via email at [email protected] Obviously, the action spectacle is the major reason to see this movie, and it’s worth the money to see it in the biggest and loudest theater you can find. The stunt work is superb, which makes sense as the director started out as a stunt choreographer. He has his cast doing things that aren’t humanly possible, but these guys are movie heroes, not mere mortals, so you’re never really concerned when somebody jumps out of a skyscraper window or does some other outlandish act of daring do. It’s all part of the fun.It helps that the cast is so much fun to watch. The bickering between our two heroes gives the entire enterprise a playful vibe. It’s easier to swallow the devastation on display here when you know that the good guys are having such a blast.Elba is also quite good playing the bad guy who is so omnipotent that he refers to himself as “Black Superman.” He is a charismatic and very talented performer, and it doesn’t hurt that he’s People Magazine’s reigning Sexiest Man Alive. If that’s not enough for you, he’s facing off against Johnson, who held the Sexiest Man title back in 2016.The film isn’t without its problems. It suffers from movie bloat as the filmmakers try to cram in too many set pieces. It’s a little numbing and probably 30 minutes too long. They also seem to be making plans for more “Fast & Furious” spin off movies.center_img The ninth film in the “Fast & Furious” franchise is one of those summer movies that doesn’t make a lick of sense. The plot is a silly mess, the acting is laughably over-the-top, and the never-ending parade of action and stunts defy physics at every turn.In other words, this is a mindlessly amped-up summer blockbuster, and it’s an absolute blast. It won’t survive critical scrutiny, but most audiences will be so overwhelmed by the spectacle that they won’t have time to think about anything other than how much fun they are having.The film starts off with a bang, introducing us to a cybernetically modified bad guy (Idris Elba) who is trying to steal a super virus that can wipe out life on Earth.last_img read more

first_img Related With a recently confirmed funding boost, British Triathlon’s UK Sport Lottery funded World-Class Performance Squad for 2014 will feature six newcomers, taking the overall total to 23 athletes. As noted by British Triathlon, the increase in squad size is a reflection on the hard work by the Home Nations to develop young and exciting talent.New names to the squad include ITU world junior medal winners, Marc Austin and Grant Sheldon as well as eighth place junior finisher, Morgan Davies.Talented young triathletes Miles Burton, 17, and Sian Rainsley, 16, will also now be supported with UK Sport Lottery funding, as will Katie Hewison, who finished in the ITU World Triathlon Series top twenty last season.British Triathlon’s Performance Director, Brendan Purcell, said “The Home Nations have been working hard to develop the talent pathways into the World-Class programme and as a result we now have more athletes hitting the standard.“We have, of course, benefited from an increase in UK Sport Lottery Funding, and that has allowed us to bring in additional athletes who have demonstrated their potential to win international medals and ultimately got on to feature at the Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.”He added “Having a bigger squad and a strong support team will also be good for creating a culture of healthy competition and team working within the squad.”Eight athletes continue to be supported at Podium level, including recent world and Olympic champion Alistair Brownlee, ITU World Champion, Non Stanford and former ITU World Champions, Jonathan Brownlee and Helen Jenkins.Purcell continued “Our resources are focused on supporting the Podium athletes and their medal aspirations in the ITU World Triathlon Series and Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games this year. However, our junior talent is equally as important if we want to achieve our long term objectives of success in 2020, and we will continue to work closely with the Home Nations to further develop young athletes.”Podium SquadAdam Bowden, 31, from Watford, trains LoughboroughAlistair Brownlee, 25, LeedsJonny Brownlee, 23, LeedsDavid McNamee, 25, from Irvine, trains LeedsVicky Holland, 28, from Gloucester, trains LeedsHelen Jenkins, 30, BridgendNon Stanford, 25, from Swansea, trains LeedsJodie Stimpson, 25, from Oldbury, trains internationallyPodium Potential SquadMarc Austin, 20, from Glasgow, trains StirlingGordon Benson, 19, LeedsTom Bishop, 22, from Derby, trains LeedsMark Buckingham, 28, from Holmfirth, trains LeedsMiles Burton, 17, BathMorgan Davies, from Porthcawl, trains LoughboroughAaron Harris, 25, from Bideford, trains LoughboroughMatt Sharp, 24, from Enfield, trains BathGrant Sheldon, 19, from Hamilton, trains StirlingSophie Coldwell, 19, from Nottingham, trains LoughboroughLucy Hall, 22, from Lutterworth, trains LeedsKatie Hewison, 28, from Chorley, trains internationallySian Rainsley, 16, CoventryLois Rosindale, 23, LeedsGeorgia Taylor Brown, 19, from Manchester, trains Leedswww.britishtriathlon.orglast_img read more
