Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Cristiano Ronaldo’s focus right now might be on helping Portugal get as far as possible in the 2022 World Cup, but that hasn’t stopped speculation about his future. The striker left Manchester United on November 22, leading to questions about where he will go after the games in Qatar. One of the offers on the table is reportedly a huge deal from Saudi Arabian club Al Nassr. ESPN has said the Saudi club is offering Cristiano Ronaldo a three-and-a-half-year deal worth more than $119 million a year . That would make Ronaldo the highest-paid soccer player in the world, topping the $110 million a year that French forward Kylian Mbappe earns at Paris Saint-Germain. Ronaldo was on around $40 million a year at Manchester United before mutually terminating that deal in November. On top of that though, he earns around $60 million from off-the-pitch sources like his partnerships with Nike, Herbalife HLF and … [Read more...] about Cristiano Ronaldo Could Be Saudi Arabian Soccer’s David Beckham If He Takes Al Nassr Offer

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Soccer’s a strange game. Mexico entered its final World Cup group fixture against Saudi Arabia on the back of two underwhelming results—a goalless stalemate with Poland and a 2-0 reverse against Argentina. More pressingly, it hadn’t even found its way onto the scoresheet. The fact it was still alive, stepping out into an electric atmosphere inside the Lusail stadium in Qatar—a massive shiny bowl of an arena that will host the final—was something in itself. For all its problems, lacking dynamism up front and with a largely unpopular coach in ex-Barcelona manager Gerardo Martino, there was a sense this could still be the moment. Mexico’s roster is not the best. But with Napoli’s €45 million ($47 million) purchase Hirving Lozano primed, and 37-year-old veteran stopper Guillermo Ochoa an inspiration between the posts, you felt it was saving itself for a goal rush that would seal its advance to the knockout stages. With the … [Read more...] about Mexico Out And Gerardo Martino Gone: Where El Tri Goes From Here
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin The waiting is over. The uncertainty is not. But on Sunday Deshaun Watson will resume his career. When he takes the field at quarterback for the Cleveland Browns in Houston, ironically against his former team, the Houston Texans. It will be Watson’s first appearance in a regular season NFL game since January 3, 2021, the last day of the 2020 season. It will be Watson’s first appearance since the Browns acquired him from Texas on March 18, in exchange for six draft picks, including three first round picks. It will also be Watson’s first appearance since serving an 11-game suspension from the NFL for violating the league’s Personal Conduct Policy. The Browns didn’t win a lot of games while Watson was suspended, Cleveland is 4-7, but that was mostly due to a leaky defense. The Browns’ offense, under backup quarterback Jacoby Brissett, was in the upper third of the NFL in points scored. The Browns probably have to … [Read more...] about There’s No Wiggle Room For The Cleveland Browns, Who Need To Start Stacking Wins
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer provided a most apt description of Lincoln Center’s new David Geffen Hall —the revamped Avery Fisher Hall that is the home of the New York Philharmonic —at the hall’s recent ribbon-cutting ceremony. Presiding over the festivities with New York Governor Kathy Hochul, Schumer said, “Both Lincoln Center and the New York Philharmonic are an institution, not just in this great city but in the whole world. Any time the New York Philharmonic plays a note, the world hears it and the world listens. “So it’s been long overdue that the Philharmonic should have a concert space that befits its reputation and stature in the music world.” The hall is named after benefactor and entertainment mogul David Geffen, who donated $100 million to Lincoln Center in 2015 to renovate Avery Fisher Hall, called Philharmonic Hall when it opened in 1962 with acoustics that were highly criticized. In 2019 … [Read more...] about New York Philharmonic’s Revamped David Geffen Hall Opens At Lincoln Center, Welcoming Local Community
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Like Hollywood, travel is a glamor industry. Pictures of people on sunny beaches, partying on Las Vegas pool decks, clinking glasses aboard cruise ships or splashing in crystal-clear waters from Bali to Bermuda are designed to do only thing: sell travel and experiences. Hollywood helps sell tourism too. There’s a reason why people long to walk where their favorite characters did, whether it’s an isolated peninsula in Spain where “Game of Thrones” was filmed, or fancy hotels where the women of” Sex and the City” frolicked. HBO’s "White Lotus” will no doubt drive tourists to its first and second season locations of Hawaii and Sicily. But there is a large gap between the expansive, expensive picture the travel industry likes to paint, and the reality. In a perceptive article in The Street , “The Future of Travel is a Three-Star Hotel”, writer Veronika Bondarenkonov writes that for many properties, the goal is attracting … [Read more...] about Is The Future Of Travel Really The Three-Star Hotel?

Sentient or not, MineDojo got Nvidia’s researchers the NeurIPS 2022 Outstanding Datasets and Benchmarks Paper Award, demonstrating their belief that large language models in the future will be “embodied agents that proactively take actions, endlessly explore the world, and continuously self-improve.” The current version of this AI agent learned Minecraft’s flexible gameplay using a massive online database of more than 7,000 wiki pages, millions of Reddit threads and 300,000 hours of recorded gameplay.
