Early also a competition escort bayan

Allegations of foreign exchange fixing by banks could blow up into a bigger scandal than Libor or PPI, Royal Bank escort bayan of Scotland boss Ross McEwan has warned.
RBS (down 4.5p to 319.2p) was hit with £390m in penalties for its role in the manipulation of the inter-bank lending rate Libor, amid a flurry of fines levied on banking giants.
And McEwan admitted that the early signs suggest foreign exchange – or Forex – fixing allegations could prove equally damaging.

‘Unfortunately it has the hallmarks,’ said McEwan, adding that it was ‘sort of a Libor case again’.
The Kiwi bank boss also said he hoped to be able to get the lender back to a state in which taxpayers would get back the £46bn pumped into RBS to save it from collapse.

McEwan’s comments came as the Competition and Markets Authority announced a review into competition among banks.

Discussing the review on LBC Radio, McEwan said it was time to ‘get  on with it’.

Recaro escort fewer ground days

(CNN) — There is no shortage of adjectives one can apply to airline seats: uncomfortable, bulky, cramped, outdated and — escort from an airlines point of view — overpriced. Its no wonder then that many carriers are looking to make a bayan escort change.
Ditching the screens?
Dr. Mark Hiller, CEO at Recaro Aircraft Seating, notes that accommodating passengers personal devices has become an imperative, eskort though one that few manufacturers have yet to address.
Connectivity is no longer just an option, but a necessity, he says.
At escort bayan the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, Germany last month, Recaro unveiled their newest design in economy seating, called the BL3530. The new seat features a tablet PC holder, a smart pocket for stowing devices (and protecting them from scratches) and a power supply for charging.
Shedding pounds
Rigorous training for space travel
Experiencing zero gravity on earth
The BL3530 follows another vital trend; at 10 kilograms per seat, its lighter than its predecessors.
Fuel costs are extremely high these days — this is just an accepted fact in the industry. As a result, every kilogram counts, says James Lee, director of Paperclip Design Limited, an award-winning industrial design studio.
The lightest chair on the market is made by relative newcomer Expliseat, a French company that has crafted a model made from titanium and composite materials. It weights just 4 kilograms. The company estimates the weight savings could translate into $500,000 of fuel savings per aircraft per year.
According to Benjamin Saada, Expliseats CEO, the CO2 savings are even more significant.
Every aircraft we equip saves 1,200 tons of CO2 per year. Thats the equivalent of planting 45,000 trees, he says. Imagine if every airplane in the world signed on. It could completely change the global fuel emissions.
2022: Cheap flights, more rail and hands-free cars
Get a convertible
One particularly awkward feature of airline seats is their lack of versatility. They recline, and thats about as adaptive as they get. Papercilp is hoping to change that with its new Caterpillar Convertible seat, which won the premium class and VIP category at the Crystal Cabin Award this year.
The Caterpillar can be configured as a roomy Premium Economy seat, or converted into a Business Class seat with a lie-flat bed and direct aisle access.
The core aim is to allow airlines to adjust their cabin capacity based on demand, says Lee.
Flights from London to New York might have a big need for Business Class, for example, but if you use the same plane to fly to Phuket, the demand for lie-flat seats could be a lot less. This design allows the airline to adapt, he adds.

The armrest of the future?
This is not the first year Paperclip has scooped up an award for its designs. The trademark Paperclip armrest — a dual-level version that grants both parties access — has picked up several accolades over the years.
Unfortunately, there hasnt been a lot of demand for the innovation, and its potential for a more democratic approach to elbow room.
Ive showed the design to a lot of manufactures, and theyll say, oh, thats nice, but there hasnt been a lot of need for it. The issue is cost, he says.
Though the concept may not catch on on planes, it could become a feature of seating on the ground.
Its more likely to one day see (the armrest) in theaters and cinemas. There are fewer regulations on the ground than in the air, so theres less resistance to new products, he says.
Apparently This Matters: Airplane armrest for two
Turned around
Zodiac Aerospace has also been experimenting with an alternate seating layout that could provide passengers with substantially more legroom (a 31-inch pitch instead of the more standard 27-inch). The HD 31 concept would feature two forward-facing seats sandwiching a single backward-facing seat.
According to Pierre-Antony Vastra, an executive vice president at Zodiac, the layout has, raised a lot of interest.
It provides a larger space for the shoulders while enabling the airline to board the same number of passengers, he says.

The lead did not last long — Socrates rounding off a one-two with Zico escort before firing home past Dino Zoff in the Italian goal.
But just as Brazil appeared set to take the game away bayan escort from its opponents, Rossi punished a poor defensive mistake to restore Italys advantage before the break.
Rossi should have finished the eskort tie off midway through the second half but fired wide of the target — a mistake which was punished almost escort bayan immediately.
Falcao, a constant menace, unleashed a fierce drive which left Zoff with no chance.
Needing just a draw to progress, Brazil could have adopted a more cautious approach — but that was not in this teams DNA.

Within the opening eight minutes, the Germans had already conceded twice with Puskas and Czibor making the early breakthrough.
The contest appeared done and dusted — Hungary, unbeaten in four years, looked set to claim its very first World Cup title.
But Germany hit back. First, Max Morlock pulled a goal back before Helmut Rahn levelled the game at 2-2 in the 18th minute.
The game, played on a quagmire of a pitch, was an end-to-end affair but with six minutes remaining, the unthinkable happened — Germany scored.
Rahn, the man who had drawn his side level, pounced to finish and win the World Cup for Germany.
It was a kind of liberation for the Germans from all the things that weighed down upon them after the Second World War, German historian Joachim Fest wrote.
July 4, 1954 is in certain aspects the founding day of the German Republic.
Italy 4-3 West Germany 1970
It was dubbed the Game of the Century but this seven-goal thriller was dangerously close to fizzling out into a laborious Italian victory.
Italy, who had taken an eighth minute lead through Roberto Boninsegna, looked certain to make the final having reached the 90th minute with its lead still intact.
The German side, which had defeated reigning champions England in the previous round in a grueling contest which went to extra-time, looked tired and forlorn.
Continually denied by the brilliance of Italian goalkeeper Enrico Albertosi, coupled with the referees failure to award two penalties, Germanys frustration began to grow.

But just when it appeared Germanys hopes had been dashed, left-back Karl-Heinz Schnellinger — who had played his club football in Italy since 1963 – scored a dramatic late equalizer.
That strike ensured the watching world would be treated to one of the most exciting periods of extra-time in tournament history.
What followed was a thrilling end-to-end affair with Germany striking first through Gerd Muller — the man who had scored a hat-trick in the quarterfinal.
Italy responded through Tarcisio Burgnichs volley before Gianni Riva made it 3-2 with a stunning finish.
Germany wasnt finished though and Muller struck again with 10 minutes remaining to draw his side level.
But any thoughts of a German victory were finally extinguished when Gianni Rivera netted a dramatic winner.
Italy went on to play Brazil in the final four days later but proved no match for Pele and co. who cruised to a 4-1 victory to claim the trophy.
West Germany 3-3 France 1982
It remains one of the most iconic moments of World Cup history.
When France midfielder Patrick Battiston ran through on goal, he appeared set to score the goal which would send them into the World Cup final.
1982 Semi Final: France's Patrick Battiston is stretchered off after his infamous collision with Harald Schumacher. pic.twitter.com/OWHpUKeKhi— World Cup Photos (@WorldCupPhotos1) March 5, 2014
With the tie poised at 1-1, Battiston ran towards goal with glory beckoning with just the goalkeeper to beat.
But therein lay the problem. As Battiston forged his path towards goal, Harald Toni Schumacher, turned his body and collided with the Frenchman running at full pelt.
Immediately knocked unconscious, Battiston lost two teeth, suffered three cracked ribs and damaged vertebrae. He failed to recover consciousness for 30 minutes.
While Battiston was left injured, the referee failed to award a free-kick nor caution Schumacher.
Instead, it was the goalkeeper, remembered as one of the tournaments most infamous villains, who helped his side qualify for the final.
Riled by the injustice, France took control of the game, moving into a 3-1 lead in the first half of extra-time.
Marius Trésor, the French sweeper, volleyed home the second before Alain Giresse appeared to have won the tie.
France, led by the talented Michel Platini and the impressive Jean Tigana, continued to fight for every ball with their opponent on the rack.
But with just minutes of the first half of extra time remaining, disaster struck.
France, having lost possession following a suspect looking challenge on Platini, were cut open and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge stabbed home.
Six minutes later, the comeback was completed when Klaus Fischer produced an exquisite bicycle kick to level.
Penalty kicks ensued and it was Schumacher who ensured his side progressed to the final — saving from Didier Six and Maxime Bossis.

Informed after the contest that Battiston had lost two teeth, Schumacher commented: If thats all thats wrong, tell him Ill pay for the crowns.
Following the tournament, a French newspaper ran a poll for the nations least popular person — Schumacher edged out Adolf Hitler to claim the dubious prize.
Netherlands 1-2 West Germany 1974
It was the dream final — the host nation against the team playing one of the most beautiful brands of football ever seen.
The Netherlands, led by the mercurial Johan Cruyff, had qualified for the final following a campaign which had underlined its credentials as world champions.
Playing under the legendary Rinus Michels, Netherlands had already dispatched Argentina and Brazil and was favorite to defeat West Germany.
On July 7 1974, the men in orange kicked off the game — and promptly took the lead within 63 seconds before a single German player had even managed to touch the ball.
Having kept possession so easily, Cruyff moved into the penalty area where he was fouled and Johan Neeskens smashed home the resulting penalty.
Speaking some time after the game, Netherlands midfielder Johnny Rep explained how that goal changed the entire complexion of the contest.
Gerd Muller scores the winning goal in the 1974 Final. pic.twitter.com/kgS6Ktpvhb— World Cup Photos (@WorldCupPhotos1) March 10, 2014
We wanted to humiliate the Germans. It wasnt something wed thought about, but we did it. We started knocking the ball around — and we forgot to score a second.
The failure to convert dominance into goals soon cost the visiting side as West Germany leveled with a penalty of its own through Paul Breitner.
It was then left to the prolific striker, Gerd Muller, to win the tie two minutes before the interval.
While the orange shirts poured forward in search of an equalizer after the break, the German defense held firm.
In the end, the immovable object prevailed over the irresistible force.
Going a goal down was good for us, German capain Franz Beckenbauer said after the game.
The Dutch eased off and we were able to get into the match. And once youve relaxed your grip, its hard to recover the initiative.
Four years later, Netherlands suffered final heartbreak once again, going down 3-1 to host nation Argentina.
Brazil 1-2 Uruguay 1950
If youre off to Brazil or already there, then heed this advice — dont mention Alcides Ghiggia.
Some 64 years might have passed since Ghiggias strike condemned Brazil to a heartbreaking defeat in the in the final but the scars remain.
Our catastrophe, our Hiroshima, wrote novelist Nelson Rodrigues, was the defeat by Uruguay in 1950.
Brazil, hosting the tournament for the first time, required just a draw from its final group game in a tournament where there was no final.
The contest had begun well with winger Friaca giving the host nation a halftime lead.
With victory seemingly assured, Brazilian newspapers hit the street declaring glory, while the medals for the home side were pressed and a victory tune composed.
While nobody could accuse the authorities of not being organized, nobody managed to relate the news to Uruguay.

Instead, the visitors hit back after the interval through Juan Alberto Schiaffino before Ghiggia netted the winner.
Much of the blame fell on goalkeeper Moacyr Barbosa, who was held responsible for his sides defeat.
Some 20 years later, a woman in a supermarket pointed towards him and declared to the young boy by her side, Look at him, son. He is the man that made all of Brazil cry.
Under Brazilian law the maximum sentence is 30 years, Barbosa remarked on his 79th birthday, just two weeks before he passed away in 2000. But my imprisonment has been for 50 years.
England 4-2 West Germany 1966
Was it or wasnt it?
Some 48 years, its a question football fans are still asking.
When Geoff Hursts effort bounced down on the goalline, the world held its breath.
With the final poised at 2-2 and in extra-time, the decision to allow the goal rested with a linesman from the USSR.
His decision to allow the effort went down in World Cup folklore and allowed England to go on and win the tournament.
Hurst completed his hat-trick late on in extra-time and complete a stunning victory.

In a pulsating contest, England fell behind to a Helmut Haller strike after just 12 minutes before Hurst leveled soon after.
The host nation then appeared to have snatched victory on 78 minutes when Martin Peters rifled home to send the 93,000 crowd into raptures.
But with 15 seconds remaining, the visitors hit back when Wolfgang Weber scored a dramatic equalizer.
With the scores at 2-2 at the end of 90 minutes, it was then that England manager, Alf Ramsey, coined his iconic phrase.
Having watched his players squander their advantage so late in the game, he told them: Youve won it once now go out and win it again.
And thats exactly what they did — Hursts two goals claiming the trophy for the first and so far only time in the nations history.
Romania 3-2 Argentina 1994
After losing to West Germany in the final four years earlier, Argentina arrived in the U.S. hoping to reclaim the crown it had won in 1986.
A second round knockout meeting with Romania was expected to be negotiated comfortably enough, despite their opponents boasting the talents of captain Gheorge Hagi.
Without their own maestro, Diego Maradona, who was sent home from the tournament in disgrace for failing a drug test for ephedrine, the Argentina side relied on the striking prowess of Gabriel Batistuta and Abel Balbo.
The likes of Fernando Redondo and Diego Simeone ruled the midfield while Ariel Ortega was the new kid on the block hoping to announce himself on the world stage.
In soaring temperatures at Californias Pasadena Rose Bowl, it was Romania which made the perfect start when Ilie Dumitrescus looping free-kick inexplicably sailed over the head of Argentina goalkeeper Luis Islas and into the far corner.

That advantage lasted just five minutes before Batistuta was adjudged to have been fouled inside the penalty area and the forward picked himself up before firing home the spot kick.
If that was the signal for Argentina to go on and dominate then Romania failed to get the message.
Instead, it was Hagi who began to take control and his wonderful pass allowed Dumitrescu to run in front of the Argentina defense and finish exquisitely.
Hagi then extended Romanias lead 13 minutes after the interval, rounding off a stylish counter-attack by firing an unstoppable effort past Islas.
Argentina scrambled a goal back with 15 minutes remaining but Romania held on to clinch a place in the quarterfinals.
A 2-2 draw with Sweden meant the game went to penalties and misses by Dan Petrescu and Miodrag Belodedici saw Romani exit in heartbreaking fashion.
North Korea 3-5 Portugal 1966
North Korea arrived in England just happy to be involved in the World Cup.
A 3-0 defeat by the USSR in its opening game came as little surprise — but what followed next was to go down in World Cup history.
Having drawn 1-1 with Chile in its second game, North Korea faced two-time world champions Italy at Middlesbroughs Ayresome Park.
Italy was expected to reach the later stages of the tournament and challenge for a third crow — but that mission was cut short in stunning style.
Pak-Do-Iks 42nd minute strike gave North Korea a 1-0 victory and set up a quarterfinal tie with Portugal.
Portugal, led by its supremely talented striker Eusebio, had cantered into the last eight by winning all three group games.
Huge favorites to progress to the semifinals, Portugal arrived at Evertons Goodison Park with the expectation it would win easily.

What transpired, however, was very different.
Pak Seung-Zin smashed in the opener shortly after kickoff, and further goals from Li Dong-Woon and Yang Sung-Kook put the minnow 3-0 ahead within the opening 25 minutes.
Fortunately for Portugal, Eusebio, who starred for the great Benfica side of the 1960s, hit back with four goals of his own before Jose Augusto sealed the victory.
There was no escape in the next round though for Portugal, which was beaten 2-1 by eventual winners, England.
Argentina 2-2 England 1998
This contest had everything — goals, a red card, a dramatically disallowed winner and Englands predictable exit via penalties.
Argentinas and Englands World Cup rivalry is well documented and stretches back to 1986 when Diego Maradona scored the Hand of God goal.
Fast forward 12 years and the two teams met again, this time in the last 16 in Saint Etienne, France.
It was a frenetic encounter with Argentina taking the lead after just five minutes after Gabriel Batistuta netted from the penalty spot following a foul on Diego Simeone.
England leveled four minutes later when Michael Owen was fouled inside the penalty box and Alan Shearer fired home the spot kick.
Then came one of the most astonishing moments in recent tournament history.
Owen, just 18, picked up the ball on the halfway line, running at full force through the Argentina defense, before skipping past a couple of defenders and rifling the ball into the top corner.
England appeared to take a 2-1 lead into the interval but a clever free kick allowed Javier Zanetti to equalize in stoppage time.
The second half was barely two minutes old when the entire tie was turned on its head.

David Beckham the pin-up boy of English football, was shown a red card by Danish referee Kim Milton Nielsen after kicking out at Simeone.
Beckhams absence left England facing an uphill battle — but one which it thought it had won when Sol Campbell headed home from close-range.
While Englands players celebrated seemingly unaware that the goal had been disallowed for a foul, Argentina rushed up the field and almost grabbed the lead much to the frustration of Glenn Hoddles men.
With neither side able to find another goal, the tie went to penalty kicks and it was Argentina which prevailed.
Their players celebrated into the night, even taunting their English opponents from their bus. It was a night which neither set of players would ever forget.

escort bayan the are stages mars

(CNN) — If you think you saw a flying saucer Saturday over Hawaii, you might not be crazy — except escort bayan what you saw didnt come from outer space, though that may be its ultimate destination.
After several weather-related delays this month, escort bayan NASAs new spacecraft lifted off from the U.S. Navys Pacific Missile Range facility in Kauai, Hawaii, on Saturday morning.
The space escort bayan agency said its Low-Density Supersonic Decelerator, or LDSD, went up at 8:45 a.m. (2:45 p.m. ET), carried aloft by a escort bayan giant balloon on a mission to test landing technologies for a future human mission to Mars.
Shortly after 11 a.m., the test vehicle dropped from the balloon and the powered flight, as NASA described it, began. At this point, the disc-like LDSD was about 120,000 feet, or more than 20 miles, above Earth.
NASA said their current information indicates the spacecrafts rocket fired just as they hoped, with the expectation that it would rise up to about 180,000 feet, reaching the stratosphere.
Eventually, a donut-shaped tube inflated — which makes the whole thing look like a flying saucer — thus beginning the deceleration process. The next thing that was supposed to slow the vehicles descent was a giant parachute, though NASA acknowledged it did not deploy as expected.
The whole process ended with the vehicles splashdown in the Pacific about 11:35 a.m., or 30 minutes after it was released from the balloon.
From what we know, the test was successful, said Shannon Ridinger, a NASA spokeswoman.
Ridinger noted that noted NASA officials are still going through the data to assess everything what happened, noting that the only flaw known right now was that the parachute the space agency was testing had an issue.
Project managers are expected to give a more thorough rundown of how things went on Sunday morning.
Current technology for decelerating from high speeds during re-entry into the atmosphere to the final stages of landing on Mars dates back to NASAs Viking Program, which put two landers on the Martian surface in 1976.
The basic Viking parachute design has been used ever since. It was successfully used again in 2012 to deliver the rover Curiosity to Mars.
Curiosity, by the way, just celebrated the anniversary of its first Martian year on the Red Planet.
NASA will need new and improved landing technologies to handle the larger spaceships of tomorrow and land them on rocky surfaces.

Under Brazilian law the maximum sentence is 30 years, Barbosa remarked on his 79th birthday, just two weeks before he passed away in 2000. But my imprisonment has been for 50 years.
England 4-2 West Germany 1966
Was it or wasnt it?
Some 48 years, its a question football fans are still asking.
When Geoff Hursts effort bounced down on the goalline, the world held its breath.
With the final poised at 2-2 and in extra-time, the decision to allow the goal rested with a linesman from the USSR.
His decision to allow the effort went down in World Cup folklore and allowed England to go on and win the tournament.
Hurst completed his hat-trick late on in extra-time and complete a stunning victory.

In a pulsating contest, England fell behind to a Helmut Haller strike after just 12 minutes before Hurst leveled soon after.
The host nation then appeared to have snatched victory on 78 minutes when Martin Peters rifled home to send the 93,000 crowd into raptures.
But with 15 seconds remaining, the visitors hit back when Wolfgang Weber scored a dramatic equalizer.
With the scores at 2-2 at the end of 90 minutes, it was then that England manager, Alf Ramsey, coined his iconic phrase.
Having watched his players squander their advantage so late in the game, he told them: Youve won it once now go out and win it again.
And thats exactly what they did — Hursts two goals claiming the trophy for the first and so far only time in the nations history.
Romania 3-2 Argentina 1994
After losing to West Germany in the final four years earlier, Argentina arrived in the U.S. hoping to reclaim the crown it had won in 1986.
A second round knockout meeting with Romania was expected to be negotiated comfortably enough, despite their opponents boasting the talents of captain Gheorge Hagi.
Without their own maestro, Diego Maradona, who was sent home from the tournament in disgrace for failing a drug test for ephedrine, the Argentina side relied on the striking prowess of Gabriel Batistuta and Abel Balbo.
The likes of Fernando Redondo and Diego Simeone ruled the midfield while Ariel Ortega was the new kid on the block hoping to announce himself on the world stage.
In soaring temperatures at Californias Pasadena Rose Bowl, it was Romania which made the perfect start when Ilie Dumitrescus looping free-kick inexplicably sailed over the head of Argentina goalkeeper Luis Islas and into the far corner.

That advantage lasted just five minutes before Batistuta was adjudged to have been fouled inside the penalty area and the forward picked himself up before firing home the spot kick.
If that was the signal for Argentina to go on and dominate then Romania failed to get the message.
Instead, it was Hagi who began to take control and his wonderful pass allowed Dumitrescu to run in front of the Argentina defense and finish exquisitely.
Hagi then extended Romanias lead 13 minutes after the interval, rounding off a stylish counter-attack by firing an unstoppable effort past Islas.
Argentina scrambled a goal back with 15 minutes remaining but Romania held on to clinch a place in the quarterfinals.
A 2-2 draw with Sweden meant the game went to penalties and misses by Dan Petrescu and Miodrag Belodedici saw Romani exit in heartbreaking fashion.
North Korea 3-5 Portugal 1966
North Korea arrived in England just happy to be involved in the World Cup.
A 3-0 defeat by the USSR in its opening game came as little surprise — but what followed next was to go down in World Cup history.
Having drawn 1-1 with Chile in its second game, North Korea faced two-time world champions Italy at Middlesbroughs Ayresome Park.
Italy was expected to reach the later stages of the tournament and challenge for a third crow — but that mission was cut short in stunning style.
Pak-Do-Iks 42nd minute strike gave North Korea a 1-0 victory and set up a quarterfinal tie with Portugal.
Portugal, led by its supremely talented striker Eusebio, had cantered into the last eight by winning all three group games.
Huge favorites to progress to the semifinals, Portugal arrived at Evertons Goodison Park with the expectation it would win easily.

What transpired, however, was very different.
Pak Seung-Zin smashed in the opener shortly after kickoff, and further goals from Li Dong-Woon and Yang Sung-Kook put the minnow 3-0 ahead within the opening 25 minutes.
Fortunately for Portugal, Eusebio, who starred for the great Benfica side of the 1960s, hit back with four goals of his own before Jose Augusto sealed the victory.
There was no escape in the next round though for Portugal, which was beaten 2-1 by eventual winners, England.
Argentina 2-2 England 1998
This contest had everything — goals, a red card, a dramatically disallowed winner and Englands predictable exit via penalties.
Argentinas and Englands World Cup rivalry is well documented and stretches back to 1986 when Diego Maradona scored the Hand of God goal.
Fast forward 12 years and the two teams met again, this time in the last 16 in Saint Etienne, France.
It was a frenetic encounter with Argentina taking the lead after just five minutes after Gabriel Batistuta netted from the penalty spot following a foul on Diego Simeone.
England leveled four minutes later when Michael Owen was fouled inside the penalty box and Alan Shearer fired home the spot kick.
Then came one of the most astonishing moments in recent tournament history.
Owen, just 18, picked up the ball on the halfway line, running at full force through the Argentina defense, before skipping past a couple of defenders and rifling the ball into the top corner.
England appeared to take a 2-1 lead into the interval but a clever free kick allowed Javier Zanetti to equalize in stoppage time.
The second half was barely two minutes old when the entire tie was turned on its head.
55 days to go, Beckham sent off v Argentina in st Etienne France 98 pic.twitter.com/bMNbfVNN9F— Paul Dawson (@dawsa123) April 17, 2014
David Beckham the pin-up boy of English football, was shown a red card by Danish referee Kim Milton Nielsen after kicking out at Simeone.
Beckhams absence left England facing an uphill battle — but one which it thought it had won when Sol Campbell headed home from close-range.
While Englands players celebrated seemingly unaware that the goal had been disallowed for a foul, Argentina rushed up the field and almost grabbed the lead much to the frustration of Glenn Hoddles men.
With neither side able to find another goal, the tie went to penalty kicks and it was Argentina which prevailed.
Their players celebrated into the night, even taunting their English opponents from their bus. It was a night which neither set of players would ever forget.

To work together escape escort bayan

(CNN) — Fields of Gold, yes. Oceans of money, no.
Sting told the UK publication The Mail on Sunday that he escort bayan wont be leaving his more than $300 million fortune to his six children.
I told them there wont be much money escort bayan left because we are spending it! We have a lot of commitments. What comes in we spend, and there isnt escort bayan much left, he said. I certainly dont want to leave them trust funds that are albatrosses round their necks.
Not that escort bayan theyve needed the money. They all have a good work ethic, he added.
They have this work ethic that makes them want to succeed on their own merit. People make assumptions, that they were born with a silver spoon in their mouth, but they have not been given a lot, he said.
Stings children have done well for themselves, particularly daughter Mickey, who had a major role in the film Frances Ha.
The former Police frontman, now 62, was born Gordon Sumner and grew up working-class in Wallsend, near Newcastle in northeast Britain. He told The Mail on Sunday that he couldnt wait to leave his hometown.
It was a pretty violent wrench. I didnt feel I belonged there and the family was pretty dysfunctional in many ways. My parents were not happy together, he said. They loved their kids but it was a toxic environment. I needed to escape and I am glad I did.
Sting went on to great success, first with the Police and then as a solo act. For his latest work, the musical The Last Ship, hes returned to his childhood.
The irony is that Im going back to Wallsend, from where I had done everything in my power to escape, he said.
The show, which is currently running in Chicago, is expected to premiere on Broadway in the fall.
Sting said he doesnt feel guilty about his wealth — I use my houses and love having them. I am grateful I have made money — but he still tries to keep his feet on the ground.
I demand a citizens life — I really do. Walking the street; going to a bar on my own, he said. I want to be able to pick up my bags from the (airport luggage) carousel and walk to the car. There are times when I dont want or need attention.

One Square Meter explores the leading architectural designs, city plans and demand for property investment in emerging markets. Join CNNs escort bayan John Defterios as he visits some of the worlds most dynamic cities for an insight into the fast-paced world of escort bayan real estate development.
(CNN) — Milan might be most famous as the capital of Italian fashion and finance, but its an escort bayan ambitious architectural project thats generating buzz these days in the home of Armani and Alfa Romeo.
Porta Nuova is a new escort bayan 290,000 square meter (3.12 million square feet) site that will encompass office, residential and green space on the previously neglected outskirts of the city.
Building work on the project started in 2009. When finished, it will feature numerous sleek skyscraper buildings that will juxtapose sharply with Milans more traditional low-rise architecture.
As Italy looks to emerge from the Eurozone crisis, there are even some who suggest developments like these could help get the countrys economy moving again.
The made in Italy brand is not just fashion and design and food, said Manfredi Catella, CEO of property development and management firm, Hines Italia.
Now the first (brand) is our land. This is the natural resource of the country. The Middle East have their oil, we have our oil in our land. Now we have to take it back and create value. Porta Nuova is an example, Catella added.
Valued at more than $2 billion Porta Nuova is 60% financed by European investors with the remaining 40% funded by Qatar holdings.

The jewels in the crown of the project are arguably the Bosco Verticale (roughly translated as vertical forest) buildings.
The taller of these two residential towers will stand 128 meters (419 feet) high while more than 900 trees will adorn exterior walls and balcony space.
A new 231 meter curved tower close by, meanwhile, will house Unicredit Groups European headquarters and cater for 4,000 of the financial services firms staff.
Unicredits general manager Paolo Fiorentino said the new building could change the way the company structures its premises in the future.
The feedback (so far) is so positive that we will replicate this project also in other cities like Vienna. We have in mind also Rome but we change the overall headquarters philosophy in the group, Fiorentino said.
In reality what we put under discussion is the way that our people are sharing space.
Major global firms such as Google have also agreed to set up their Italian headquarters here.
But while some see progress and opportunity, others are reserving judgment.
We are not used to certain skylines now you have to lift your head up, said local architect and designer, Massimmo Locatelli.
That new way of building for Milan is really unusual and I guess people expect to get used to it, he added.
With just under a year to go until the Porta Nuova project is completed, traditionalists now dont have long to savor the citys existing skyline.

Be escort bayan patient a s

Face and limb transplants will soon be allocated like other organs, with a waiting list for people who have suffered escort bayan life-altering injuries, a national governing board said Tuesday. The directors of the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network, or OPTN, approved escort bayan the first national policies for transplant of limbs, faces and other structures, known as vascularized composite allografts, or VCAs. The escort bayan new standards will be evaluated after 15 months. Through January 2014, 28 face and limb transplants have been performed at escort bayan 11 U.S., hospitals, OPTN said. That includes high-profile patients like Charla Nash, who received a face transplant in 2008 after a chimp attack. Several hand transplants also have been performed. The new policies will better coordinate the medical specialties involved in such transplants and make the procedures more widely available. Nine people are currently waiting for VCA surgery, OPTN said.

Its unlikely Toures behavior would have been tolerated at Manchester escort United under former manager Alex Ferguson.
The Scot ruled Old Trafford with an iron fist and anyone who dared to challenge his authority was promptly shown the door.
In his autobiography, Ferguson describes how Beckham, a global brand, had to leave after a heated exchange following a defeat by Arsenal in 2003.
Beckham suffered a cut to his head after Ferguson kicked a escort bayan boot at him following a dressing-room argument — a moment which signaled the end of their relationship.
Was this the Manchester City owner's 100kg cake for winning the Premier League, which Yaya Toure is grumbling about? pic.twitter.com/LUKWuCsWe3— David Conn (@david_conn) May 21, 2014
The minute a Manchester United player thought he was bigger than the manager he had to go, Ferguson wrote in his book.
David thought he was bigger than Alex Ferguson. It doesnt matter whether its Alex Ferguson or Pete the Plumber. The authority is what counts.
While Beckhams brand was scarcely tarnished, Toure — who signed a new four-year contract with City just 11 months ago — could find himself in a far more problematic situation.
His agent said the midfielder could leave City if he is not showed enough respect — and the Ivory Coast star tweeted that he would make an announcement after the upcoming World Cup in Brazil.
Man City is not respecting the player — how can he be motivated to play for that team? Seluk told Sky Sports News.
If they dont want Toure then he can leave at any moment. Many clubs would be interested in him.
Everything dimitry said is true . He speaks for me . I will give an interview after world cup to explain— yaya toure (@Toure_yaya42) May 20, 2014
According to Hall, the players latest outburst is a sign that the tail is trying to wag the dog.
Its going to be very difficult for Yaya at Manchester City now, pic.twitter.com/G2EIF0jo1A— Yeovil Town FC (@ytfcofficial) May 20, 2014
Toure is not the first player to find himself embarrassed by his alleged excessive demands.
Hall cites an example of one player who, having lost money on his property empire, demanded his club pay up the shortfall.
Another, who had accrued large gambling debts, urged his club to pay off his creditors because it was having a negative impact on his performances.
Dear Yaya Toure; this is how Palace celebrate player's birthdays. #justsaying pic.twitter.com/KY7CDhVVpN— Five Year Plan (@FYPFanzine) May 21, 2014
Its that type of high maintenance which has helped give footballers a bad name, according to Hall.
Players need to understand that they are major brands, he added.
I cant believe they dont employ specialist employers and just rely on their agent or friend. They need to understand theyre working in the corporate world and not in Sunday League.
Effectively, Toure has devalued himself already. Potential suitors will think they can acquire him on the cheap and it may do damage to his signing-on fee.
No cake — but plenty of food for thought.

support proposal with sixth

Follow us at Tweets by @CNNFC

Some 118,000 members were called to vote after the Betis match in the clubs first referendum since 1950, when it was decided to leave the Corts stadium and build a new one — the Camp Nou.
The turnout was not quite that high — just under a third of the total.
More than 27,000 members approved plans for a $725 million revamp that will extend the grounds capacity to 105,000 people and develop the surrounding areas. Just over 9,500 voted against.
The project is due to start in 2017 and be completed four years later, including the creation of a 12,000-capacity multi-sports pavilion and 5,000 new parking spaces.
The members were voting for the future of this club, said president Josep Maria Bartomeu, who was appointed after Sandro Rosell stood down in the wake of the Neymar revelations — the club later paid an extra $18.5 million in taxes after being hit with fraud charges.
Days like today are when the world sees what FC Barcelona is and means, he added.
The support for the New Espai Barça proposal has been extraordinary. Its a huge project that will improve the club for years to come.
Saturdays win on the pitch kept Barca a point behind Atletico with six games to play, ahead of Wednesdays second leg of the Champions League quarterfinal at Vicente Calderon, with the score 1-1.
Lionel Messi opened the scoring from the penalty spot in the 15th minute after Alexis Sanchez was tripped by Jordi Figueras, who in the second half diverted Adrianos pass into his own net.
Substitute Ruben Castro immediately reduced the deficit but Messi netted his 25th league goal this season after his 86th-minute penalty was blocked by goalkeeper Adan.

FIFA hits Barcelona with transfer ban

Atletico stayed top with a 1-0 win at home to Villarreal thanks to Raul Garcias first-half header — his 16th goal this season.
Third-placed Real Madrid remained two points behind Barca following a 4-0 win at Real Sociedad, who stayed sixth.
With star player Cristiano Ronaldo injured, record signing Gareth Bale took center stage with an opportunist long-range strike to put Real 2-0 up after Asier Illarramendis opener.
Pepe then volleyed in from fellow defender Sergio Ramos headed pass, while Angel Di Maria sent substitute Alvaro Morata clear to wrap up a comfortable win ahead of the Champions League trip to Borussia Dortmund, with Real holding a 3-0 advantage.
In Italy, Inter Milans hopes of qualifying for the second-tier Europa League suffered a blow as striker Diego Milito missed a penalty in Saturdays 2-2 draw at home to struggling Bologna.
It meant Walter Mazzarris fifth-placed team have not won for the past four Serie A matches.
In France, Paris Saint-Germain guaranteed another season in the Champions League with a 3-0 win at home to Reims which put the Ligue 1 titleholder 16 points clear of second-placed Monaco with six games to play.
Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani made up for the absence of injured star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic by opening the scoring just before halftime, while Algerian defender Aissa Mandi netted two own-goals after the break.
