Share This!©Rikki NiblettWasn’t it just Halloween and now BAM! it’s Christmas. It is the most glorious time of the year at the Magic Kingdom and the park is getting ready to celebrate with you!First, it’s time to get your Jingle on – that is the Jingle Cruise. This holiday overlay of the Jungle Cruise in Adventureland sees the Skippers who are homesick during the holiday season, so they decided to create their own festive fun with homemade decorations, gifts, and more. The boat dock area has been decorated and the boats have been renamed with fun holiday themes. In addition, many of the show scenes have been decorated too, like the gorilla camp, the temple, and even Ginger and Smiley. The jokes take on a fun holiday spin too, with holiday-inspired laughs. The Jingle Cruise overlay will last through the holiday season. One of the best parts of celebrating the holiday season at the Magic Kingdom is the Frozen Holiday Wish castle lighting show. This show is simply spectacular and words do not do it justice. The is gorgeous show features Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, and even Olaf; ending with the traditional castle lighting ceremony, with Elsa turning the palace into an icy wonderland. During Frozen Holiday Wish, Cinderella Castle lights up each evening with more than 200,000 white shimmering lights, causing the castle to appear as though it has been frosted over.Other entertainment offerings will see holiday overlays as well. Those include a new segment for the brand new Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire. There will be an all-new finale scene which will include new costumes, décor, choreography, and a new original song celebrating the season. The show is found on the Cinderella Castle Forecourt Stage and includes Mickey and his troupe of Merry Makers and is performed multiple times a day.In addition, holiday overlays will occur for the Move It! Shake It! Dance and Play It! Street Party, The Dapper Dans, and the holiday version of the Main Street Trolley Show.We love the holiday season at the Magic Kingdom and are excited to get to experience it again this year.

Users will view 3 trillion videos every month or a million video minutes per second. VR and AR traffic is expected to jump 20 times by 2021 and will reach 1 percent of global entertainment traffic.
Man City defender Laporte stands by supporting Rabiot after World Cup snubby Carlos Volcano10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester City centre-half Aymeric Laporte has defended his support of PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot over his World Cup row.Laporte publicy backed Rabiot when he rejected a place on France’s standby list, which infuriated local fans.However, the City defender told Bein Sport: “People take it as they want. I did not necessarily support his act but the person. I spent a lot of years with him in the youth national team, I know he’s a very good boy. “I know a lot of things hurt him and I supported the person he is. This is not his gesture obviously, it’s not something I would do or applaud. I applaud the person that he is.” About the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say
Amber BernardAPTN NewsA child advocate who is testifying before Canada’s Senate says the best interest of the child must be kept in mind before Bill C-92, the proposed Indigenous child welfare law, is passed.Ardith Walkem of the Nlaka’Paumux Nation Tribal Council said on Thursday, that the meaning of the best interest of the child has historically resulted in situations like the Sixties Scoop.“In fact, we know, we know when we look at the kids who were the subject of the 60s, 70s, 80s, of that on-going scoop,” said Walkem.“We see what the impact has been for them. They’re the result of the operational best interest of the child.”Walkem wants to see the legislation re-define the best interest of the child to include cultural paramountcy.“It is in their best interest to remain connected to their Indigenous cultures, communities and territory. And give very clear direction that it’s to be interpreted and defined according to their own indigenous people’s values and traditions,” she said.She says if cultural considerations aren’t included in the definition that we will see former child welfare youth enter into the correctional system.“If we don’t acknowledge and keep children connected to their culture, the impact of the child welfare system isn’t protection. In fact, if we can’t keep kids protected, we’re going to see them later in the criminal justice system,” said Walkem.Bill C-92, the Act Respecting First Nations, Inuit and Métis children, Youth and Families, is currently being studied in Senate.The proposed legislation re-imagines control over Indigenous youth in the child welfare system.Indigenous children under the age of 14 make up 52 per cent of those in the system, while only making up seven per cent of all children under 14 in Canada.These children are predominantly under the jurisdiction of their respective provincial child welfare systems.That could change if C-92 receives royal assent and control is transitioned over to Indigenous communities.The act, now in senate, states the best interest of the child will be primary.Bill C-92 is currently in second reading in the House of Commons.The Senate must pass the bill before the summer break or it will not be passed into [email protected]@amberbernard
From ABC News: The first time Tiger Woods won the Masters, becoming the youngest to ever do it, he decimated the field and crumbled in his father’s arms. “We made it,” Earl Woods told his then-21-year-old son. Woods is now 43-going-on-60, still donning his trademark Sunday red. He scaled Augusta National this weekend for the fifth time,1Jack Nicklaus has the all-time record with six victories at the Masters. holding off a number of contenders, some of whom grew up watching him transcend the sport, on the back nine. What once seemed inevitable was anything but just a few years ago, as Woods battled surgeries and off-the-course maladies.“Maybe the son of golf has returned,” broadcaster and former Masters champion Nick Faldo said as Woods left the 17th green.It had been 3,954 days since Woods last won a major. Somehow, it felt even longer. Winning a major is an accomplishment reserved for a select few, but for a 10-year span beginning in the late 1990s, it was as synonymous with Woods as audacious drives and timely putts.This didn’t come out of nowhere. Bettors knew there were signs that he was putting it all back together. But it was also known that this might have been the best remaining shot he had at summiting Augusta.Suddenly a man who went five years without a win on tour has two in the past seven months. His turn-back-the-clock performance materialized when it mattered most. He now has three top-10s in his past four majors.He did it by playing Amen Corner at one-under on the final day, while the other two members of the final pairing played it one–over.Just as he has previously, Woods bashed the par-5s (-8), going three-under on them over the final round. He approached the 15th hole in a three-way tie with Xander Schauffele and Francesco Molinari, detonated his tee shot and immediately began walking toward the hole as it soared through the sky. He two-putted his way to a birdie and an outright lead and never looked back.The last time Woods won the Masters, his chip-in on the No. 16 green provided the signature highlight of his career. Playing the same hole 14 years later, Woods added to his legend. He struck an 8-iron to the center of the green, spinning it back down the hill where it stopped 4 feet from the pin. As pandemonium played around Woods at the tee box, a replay showed him at-ease cooing “come on” to his ball at it inched closer to history. That wasn’t the only time precision paid off for Woods on par-3s, which he played four-under for the tournament, the best four-round score among his five wins. When Molinari and Tony Finau found the water on No. 12, it was Woods who found the green and two-putted his way to par.Nine players entered the weekend within a shot of the lead, the most in Masters history. That historically congested scoreboard continued Sunday, as each hole seemed to carry implications for the top 15 in the standings. The win marked the first time Woods came from behind in the final round to win a major.Most unbelievable was the winding path Woods had to take just to get back to Butler Cabin. His career first began to go off the rails with a knee injury that cost him half of the 2008 season, and although he played well in 2009 (leading the PGA Tour in money won), he also blew a Sunday major lead for the first time ever when Y.E. Yang overtook him at the PGA Championship.Then came The Accident, which brought to light an ongoing pattern of behavior that tore apart Woods’s personal life. Even that may not have been the low point, however. Woods only dropped to 52nd in the World during his post-scandal struggles — and eventually fought back to reclaim the No. 1 ranking in 2013, winning five events and once again taking the money title. But in the years that followed, Woods would play so poorly and infrequently that he dropped to 674th in the world in early 2017. Such a pronounced valley in performance (particularly relative to the rest of his career) led plenty of pundits to write off Woods’s chances of ever winning another major. Those takes look scorching hot in retrospect, but it’s difficult to find an established veteran player whose ranking dropped outside the top 600 and who managed to claw back to win a major. Then again, Woods is one of the greatest pure talents in golf history — if anyone was going to rewrite that record book and make such an astonishing comeback, it would be him.Age comes for everyone, of course. And the aging curve for golfers heads south well before 45, which will be here for Woods in no time. But even as younger players increasingly dominate the sport, there’s still room for perhaps the greatest golfer of all time to enhance his legacy.It was Woods’s first Masters victory in 14 years, snapping Gary Player’s all-time record of 13 years between wins, according to ESPN Stats & Information. The win is Woods’s 81st on the PGA Tour, one shy of Sam Snead’s all-time record. It’s also his 15th major championship, three shy of Jack Nicklaus’s record. When asked about Woods’s rekindled pursuit of history on Sunday, Nicklaus said, “he’s got me shaking in my boots.”Golf’s prodigal son has officially returned, and what happens next is not known. But no one will again underestimate what Tiger Woods is capable of on a golf course.
During the past Ohio State men’s basketball season, a pregame video was played before home games featuring many past Buckeyes, such as Michael Redd, Greg Oden and Evan Turner. One player who was not included was Mike Conley Jr. The former Buckeye point guard was part of a trio, along with Oden and Daequan Cook, who left OSU after one season following the 2007 NCAA Tournament runner-up campaign. Conley was drafted No. 4 by the Memphis Grizzlies in the 2007 NBA draft. Since then, it seems like Conley has been forgotten by Buckeye faithful. Maybe it is because many fans did not agree with his decision to turn pro, particularly after he promised to return following the championship game. Maybe it has something to do with playing for a small-market, perennial lottery team like Memphis. For whatever reason, it never seems to me that Conley gets recognition as a Buckeye legend with others such as Oden and Turner. Now in his fourth season as a professional, the 23-year-old Conley is starting to establish himself as a solid NBA player. After receiving a five-year, $40 million contract extension before this season, Conley set career highs in points, assists and steals. He is one of the leaders of a young Grizzlies team that is contending in the NBA Western Conference playoffs. The Grizzlies entered the postseason as a No. 8 seed and upset the top-seeded San Antonio Spurs in the first round in six games. Memphis is now battling the fourth-seeded Oklahoma City Thunder in the conference semifinals. The series is tied, 2-2. For the postseason, Conley is playing 39.4 minutes and averaging 15.9 points and 6.2 assists per game. Going up against two of the NBA’s top point guards, San Antonio’s Tony Parker and Oklahoma City’s Russell Westbrook, Conley has held his own. Still, Conley is going largely unnoticed. Most basketball analysts and pundits have been raving about the play of forward Zach Randolph and center Marc Gasol, two of Conley’s teammates — and rightfully so. Randolph and Gasol have been putting up gaudy numbers throughout the playoffs. The orchestrator of those performances is Conley. As the point guard, he makes sure the Memphis big men are getting the ball in places and situations where they can take advantage, just like he did with Oden during their time together at OSU. He can take matters into his own hands, as well. During Game 4 against the Thunder on Monday night, Conley made a game-tying 3-pointer with three seconds remaining to send the game into overtime. Remember the 2007 second round game against Xavier? Conley scored 11 points in overtime, single-handedly closing out the game for the Buckeyes when Oden fouled out on the bench. Memphis coach Lionel Hollins understands the importance of Conley to his team. “Mike’s our head,” Hollins told the Memphis Commercial Appeal. “Mike controls the game for us. He’s our director.” With a slew of young talent, the Grizzlies are on the rise and could be a formidable contender in the West for the next several years, and with Conley signed to the long term, he should get plenty more opportunities to showcase his abilities on the big stage. Now showing: Mike Conley, the best OSU player in the NBA right now.
Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker has revealed he spoke to former Liverpool playmaker, Phillipe Coutinho before signing for the club this summer.Alisson who became the most expensive goalkeeper on earth before Chelsea’s move for Kepa Arrizabalaga surpassed his move, has already recorded four clean sheets in the Premier League as the Reds remain top of the league with six victories from six league games so far.The former AS Roma shot-stopper moved to Anfield after this summer’s World Cup but he has revealed he spoke to Coutinho about life in Merseyside before making the move down to Anfield.“He spoke highly of Jurgen [Klopp] and about the players,” said Alisson, according to Metro.Philippe Coutinho faces a late fitness test at Bayern Munich Andrew Smyth – September 12, 2019 Bayern Munich manager Niko Kovac plans to make a late decision on Philippe Coutinho’s availability this weekend after returning from representing Brazil.“He said there is no vanity in the squad but it’s a very ambitious squad with a strong desire to win.”“Coutinho also said he was very happy here with his family, which is really important. ‘Our wives spoke to each other too and they said they had a great time living here, and we are very happy.”Alisson also spoke about the club’s atmosphere prior to their UEFA Champions League game against French Champions Paris Saint-Germain.“The atmosphere I experienced here contributed to my decision to sign,” he continued. “There was also the way the Liverpool team played. It’s not dependent upon one player, it’s a real group effort. It’s a team that plays with love and passion.”
Arsenal manager Unai Emery has confirmed that Hector Bellerin is injured after failing to play in the second half in their 2-2 draw at Selhurst Park on Sunday.Bellerin didn’t play a part in the second half of Arsenal’s 2-2 draw away at Crystal Palace and speaking to the Arsenal FC website after the match, Emery confirmed the injury news saying that the Frenchman had muscular pains.“Yes, he’s injured,” said Unai Emery when asked about an update on the player’s condition.“I hope it’s not a big injury, but he had muscular pains.”Merson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.The right-back could was substituted on the 46th minute and Swiss defender Stephan Lichtsteiner came on for him.The 23-year old could miss Arsenal’s next game against Liverpool at the Emirates on Saturday, but the manager is refusing him rule out for the game.“I don’t know [whether he’s a doubt for the Liverpool game next Saturday],” Emery said.

The childish name calling she engaged in against the Premier is truly beyond the pale and amounts to a new low in the politics of the Turks & Caicos Islands.”Mrs. Robinson strongly criticized the Premier after he had to change the election date because the Elections Ordinance says there has to be more time between nomination day and voting day. The PDM Leader said, “Another history making event for this outgoing Premier, and nothing short of an indication of how he ran this country over the past few years and what you can expect if the country were to unfortunately fall into his hands again. Rufus Ewing is the FIRST Leader in our Country’s History to ever get an election date wrong!” A new date is announced as December 15, 2016.
