After the opening of the center, the residents of Kiev began to arrange a sports playground. The activists’ goal is to turn it into a real recreational space with regular competitions and sports activities involving professional coaches.

It is noted that four charity tournaments in badminton, table tennis, croquet and chess have already been held at the sports ground. Thus, they have collected more than 13 thousand hryvnias for solar batteries for the unoccupied territories of the Kherson region.

Belgian Grand Prix 2024: Lando Norris regrets McLaren’s team orders row overshadowed Oscar Piastri’s maiden win

Published

Lando Norris says he is not proud that McLaren’s team orders drama at the Hungarian Grand Prix has overshadowed team-mate Oscar Piastri’s maiden Formula 1 victory.

The 24-year-old was pitted ahead of race leader Piastri during the final pit stops at the Hungaroring, placing him at the front of the field and Australian Piastri in second place.

After several radio messages between himself and his engineer Will Joseph, Norris finally obeyed the request to move aside with two laps remaining so Piastri could claim the win.

While the one-two finish was a moment to celebrate for McLaren, Norris says the intra-team row was something he has “not felt too proud about”.

He added: “Could it have been handled slightly differently from both a team side and from a personal side? Yes, absolutely. We wouldn’t be having this conversation now in some ways.”

Norris, who started on pole position but was overtaken by Piastri on the opening lap, said if the same situation happens again, the right thing to do will be to let his team-mate “pass straight away”.

“It’s such a stupid thing that I didn’t because we’re free to race,” he added. “I could just let him pass and still try to race and overtake him.

“It sounds so simple now, but it’s not something that went through my head at the time.” READ FULL STORY HERE>>>CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING>>>

Norris heads into this weekend’s Belgian Grand Prix second in the drivers’ championship, but some critics felt his decision to give up a winning opportunity – even if it would have caused tension within the team – was something other top drivers would not have contemplated.

“Whether people on the outside think, and come up with their own stories, of what happened and what I would’ve done and wouldn’t have done – I don’t mind about that,” he said.

“The fact we had a one-two and that was barely a headline after the race – nothing was really spoken about it from that side – that’s the bit I felt worst about.

“But it’s the things that I could have done; the fact that I clouded over Oscar’s race win, his first race win in F1, is something I’ve not felt too proud about.”

Round 14 in Belgium is the final race before F1’s mid-season summer break.

Zoos react to swine fever and bluetongue

Published

By

Until recently, Sabrina Linn thought it was out of the question that there would ever be a shortage of space because of the yellow-backed duiker. For years, the few zoos in Europe that housed two specimens of these endangered mammals each tried in vain to breed. And even now, after there were surprising and gratifying breeding successes in Frankfurt and Nuremberg this year, there is of course still no talk of overpopulation.

Nevertheless, the curator, who also keeps the international studbook for yellow-backed duikers, now has a problem with her four animals in Frankfurt Zoo. “We actually wanted to bring a female duiker to Berlin by September at the latest, where she would have more offspring,” says Linn, who points out the great time pressure in the fight to save the species. In addition, the enclosure of the female, which currently has to be housed alone, will soon be urgently needed for the okapis again.

Brush-eared pigs could be restricted

But now it is no longer possible to transport animals. The zoo is also affected by the current animal epidemics. Due to the new type of bluetongue virus and the lack of approval for a vaccine, transporting yellow-backed duikers is currently out of the question, even though there have been virtually no cases of the disease in zoos in recent years. “However, when transporting ungulates, we are still subject to the same rules that apply to grazing animals in order to contain the virus,” says Linn.

The swine fever that is rampant in southern Hesse is also having an impact. Three brush-eared pigs live in the zoo, and Linn expects strict regulations to be introduced soon. “Frankfurt is not yet part of the restriction zone, but that is probably only a matter of time. The wild boars are migrating and will reach our region as well.” There are emergency plans for this, which at least spare the pigs from having to be kept in stables. “As other federal states have already experienced swine fever, fortunately the restrictions have been relaxed in recent years,” says the curator. “We would only have to seal off the area where the animals are kept, which is quite easy for us because of the location of the enclosure.” READ FULL STORY HERE>>>CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING>>>

The example shows that when epidemics break out in animal husbandry, things are not much different than in human society. “Just as we had to learn to deal with and live with Corona, the same is true in animal husbandry of the epidemics that are increasingly affecting us and keeping us busy. There is no other option than to act pragmatically,” says Linn. “Otherwise, at some point, disease control would restrict animal protection and impair animal welfare, for example by keeping wild animals in stables that are unacceptable.”

United States basketball coach Steve Kerr and player Stephen Curry on Thursday gave their support to Kamala Harris, the likely Democratic candidate for the November 5 presidential election after outgoing President Joe Biden withdrew his candidacy.

“Kamala Harris is a great candidate and I will support her,” Steve Kerr assured the American press.

The coach of Team USA since 2021 often discusses social issues in the United States during his press conferences with the Golden State Warriors, the NBA franchise he coaches and has led to four titles since 2014.

“It’s an interesting moment for our country, for sure, after the endorsement of Joe Biden,” his player Stephen Curry said at a news conference. “Vice President Harris is trying to bring her energy to the campaign, and I hope she’s on the ticket to win the election.”

“For her right now, looking at what’s coming next, it’s also about positive energy and optimism, looking at how divided our country is,” added the guard with four NBA titles and two MVP awards, also with the Golden State Warriors. READ FULL STORY HERE>>>CLICK HERE TO CONTINUE READING>>>

“So we’re very excited about where she’s going to go,” Curry concluded.

Reigning Olympic champion Team USA enters the competition on Sunday in a clash against reigning world runner-up Serbia.
