Roanoke Launches Bike Share

first_imgIn April, Roanoke, Virginia will install a bike share system similar to those found in New York and D.C.

Jordan Bell explains why he chose to join Minnesota Timberwolves

first_imgUnlike perhaps other young NBA players in his position as a free agent, Jordan Bell did not seek long-term security. Nor did he consume himself with how he could fatten his wallet.When Bell accepted a one-year deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves on the veteran’s minimum, it reflected his hope to satisfy something that he did not experience consistently through two seasons with the Warriors.“An opportunity just to play,” Bell said in a phone interview with Bay Area News Group. “Money wasn’t …last_img

BCCI invites Indian hockey team to watch Bangladesh match

first_imgNew Delhi, Mar 23 (PTI) In a novel gesture, the BCCI today invited the national hockey team as special guests to watch the Indian cricket teams ICC World T20 group league encounter against Bangladesh at the Chinnaswamy Stadium. This is the first time that BCCI has officially invited a full national team of another sport to come and watch a match at the global event. The Indian hockey team led by Sardar Singh is currently having a national camp in the Garden City ahead of their Sultan Azlan Shah Trophy encounter in Ipoh (Malaysia). Sardar confirmed that they have indeed received invitation from the BCCI secretary Anurag Thakur to come and support Mahendra Singh Dhoni and his boys. “Yes, the invite came from the BCCI secretary. It has been a nice gesture on the part of the cricket board. We would be cheering the national team from the stands,” Sardar told PTI today. It has been learnt that BCCI has arranged for VIP tickets as well as for the transportation of the entire hockey team. “The initiative was taken by Mr Thakur after he came to know that the hockey players are in Bengaluru,” a Hockey India official said on conditions of anonymity. The Indian hockey team was last time seen cheering the Davis Cup team during their tie against the Czech Republic in the national capital last year. However there was no formal invitation from the AITA as such but since the hockey team normally stays at the DLTA, the players often come to the stands to watch the tennis team in action.

The Célinaissance How Celine Dion became cool

first_imgIn today’s Big Story podcast, Céline Dion has been many things throughout her career, but “cool” has rarely been one of them. As one of the bestselling artists to call this country home, and an unabashedly proud Canadian and Quebecer, Céline should have won us all over long ago. But she never quite broke through to the more cynical younger generation.Until that generation stopped being cynical, that is. It turns out Céline Dion was always cool. She was just waiting for us to come to her. And over the past few years, we have, by the millions.GUEST: Suzannah Showler, the WalrusYou can subscribe to The Big Story podcast on Apple Podcasts, Google and SpotifyYou can also find it at thebigstorypodcast.ca.last_img

Memphis Depay hits back at transfer claims Get your facts straight

first_imgDutch winger Memphis Depay has hit out against media outlets for misquoting him in saying that he’s keen on a transfer to a big European club.Following a failed spell at Manchester United, Depay has re-established himself as one of Europe’s most promising youngsters following an impressive two years at French side Lyon.But the Netherlands international was quoted in an interview with Dutch magazine Helden saying that he wants to move to one of the best clubs in Europe in either “Real Madrid, Barcelona, Chelsea, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain or Bayern Munich”.These comments prompted Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas to retort that Depay is welcome to leave and that it would suit him well.However, Depay has now taken to social media to announce his words were misquoted and added that the interview was done two months ago.“It’s really sad that other people, blogs and websites change my words just to put people against me!” Depay wrote on Twitter.“The real ones know. I would never say anything bad about Lyon, they are the club that gave me the opportunity when I needed it!Gerard Pique, Neymar, BarcelonaLa Liga Betting: Match-day 4 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Despite it being very early into La Liga season, both Barcelona and Real Madrid have had unprecedented starts to their campaigns.

I also mentioned that Lyon play better football then most of the clubs with big names!“So before you try to call me names or attack me, make sure you get your facts straight instead of running with the rumours.”Depay has managed six goals and 13 assists in 29 appearances for Lyon across all competitions this season.I really like Lyon and People see me in the streets all the time!
