She said it will be an honour to be on the same court, but she won't be overawed in her first career meeting with the American great. "I'm really looking forward to the challenge, and I'm looking forward to being on court, out on court with her and competing against her," she said. "Just the amount of experience she has, I'm sure she's got her system and her method for preparing for every match, regardless who she plays, and I'm sure she's going to be applying that method against me."

Pokémon Go finally launched in South Korea today, almost six months after the popular game's initial launch. Developers Niantic had to overcome some unique challenges to bring Pokémons to the hugely lucrative gaming market because of the way the game relies on Google Maps to work. Those functions are limited by the government for national security reasons, because the country is technically at war with North Korea, so Niantic had to use publicly available data sources to fill in the gaps. Last year, some fans of the augmented reality title travelled to Sokcho, close to the border with North Korea, because the city is not classified as South Korean territory in Google Maps, which allowed the game to be played there. According to The Associate Press , dedicated tour and travel packages were created for gamers to stay in Sokcho, where local businesses and restaurants embraced Pokémon to appeal to gamers, whose annual average gaming spend is said to be the highest in the world.

He did that last gig in 1998, composing for broadcast on the formidable WNYC , by undergoing a series of what he calledcontrolled near-death experiencesorchestrated, so he claimed, by “Dr. Jack Kevorkian and the facilities of a Huntsville, Texas execution chamber.” These made possible “more than one hundred visits to Heaven and my returning to life to tell the tale,” or rather, to tell the tales of the more permanently deceased with whom he’d sat down for a chat. Vonnegut’s roster of afterlife interviewees included personages he personally admired such as Eugene Debs ( listen ), Isaac Newton ( listen ), and Clarence Darrow ( listen ), as well as historical villains like James Earl Ray ( listen ) and Adolf Hitler ( listen ).

• ‘I’m proud of the business that I built over the last 40 years,’ says EcclestoneNew CEO Chase Carey says F1 ‘has multiple untapped opportunitiesBernie Ecclestone’s reign as the chief executive of Formula One has been brought to a close, after he ran it virtually single-handedly for 40 years. The surprising speed of the decision is a clear signal of the intention of the new owners, Liberty Media, to change the way the sport is run. It represents the most significant shift in Formula One’s management since Ecclestone took over in the late 1970s. Liberty completed its purchase of Formula One last week and although previously the stated aim had been to maintain Ecclestone for two to three years to facilitate a change in the structure at the top of the sport, the 86-year-old has now been replaced by Chase Carey, who had already been appointed chairman of F1 and will now also become chief executive.

The curfew has been pushed back to 10 pm, from 6 pm, and clubs are packed and pulsating as DJs play the tunes of artists like Kuti and his late father Fela, the 1970s Afrobeat pioneer. Yet there is still much to be done, and many people to help, before Maiduguri can be considered back to normal, Kuti said. "There are still so many young people who are displaced, who have lost their parents, who cannot go home yet." he said." They cannot party, and it is them we must worry about the most."

MOTHERWELL manager Mark McGhee admitted he was “speechless” after his side were knocked out of the William Hill Scottish Cup by Rangers despite leading the tie with just six minutes to play. Two late goals by Kenny Miller at Ibrox cancelled out Lewis Moult’s header for Motherwell and left McGhee as low as he had felt at any point in his 26-year managerial career.

The spray was not pepper spray, but the intention was to make her feel what her victim did and to cause her to rethink the next time she uses her spray as a weapon. Another woman, 19-year-old Victoria Bascom, was caught leaving a taxi without paying the $100 fare after a 30-mile ride. Judge Cicconetti made Bascom choose between walking 30 miles in 48 hours or going to jail for 30 days. The woman chose to walk and was upset because she thought she would only have to pay the fine and didnt know the sentence would be so heavy. Yet another woman abandoned 35 kittens, 9 of which later died from upper respiratory infections because it was in freezing in November, and was forced to endure a lonely night in the woods. Before handing out the sentence, the judge said to the woman, Michelle M. Murray, “How would you like to be dumped off at a metro park late at night, spend the night listening to the coyoteslistening to the raccoons around you in the dark night, and sit out there in the cold not knowing where you’re going to get your next meal, not knowing when you are going to be rescued?” Murray chose the night alone over several other options she was given (one of which was donating over $3000 to the Humane Society) and was allowed to build a fire as temperatures plummeted.

Regarding her introduction in wartime, author Jennifer K. Stuller writes, “Wonder Woman symbolized women’s participation in the American home front industry during the Second World War— a time when superheroes were the embodiment of American patriotism” (Stuller 2010, p. 8). The history of Wonder Woman has since waxed and waned, most notably after her appearance in television. While there has been a lot of support for Wonder Woman through the years, there has also been much criticism of her as well: “Just as comic book scholars have been hesitant to proclaim Wonder Woman a feminist icon, so too was Marston’s wife reluctant to align her husband with feminism” (O’Reilly, 2005, p. 3). After failed attempts to rejuvenate the character in the late 1960’s, Wonder Women was connected with the growing women’s rights movement in the early to middle 1970’s.

Even when the puzzles get really taxing, however, the charming design of it all means you can't get too mad at Pushmo World . Oh, and beware: you'll be humming the catchy music for days... Yoshi's Woolly World The Wii played host to Kirby's Epic Yarn, a charming platformer set in a colourful world of wool, cloth and shiny buttons. As its name implies, Yoshi's Woolly World attaches the same aesthetic to Nintendo's hungry dinosaur, marking the character's first console outing since the late 90s. It's another accessible and effective game, but unlike Epic Yarn, Woolly World gets really challenging in its later stages. The gorgeous level designs and sheer charm will keep you playing to the very end, though, and Woolly World is even more entertaining in co-op mode. Lego City Undercover If you've played Telltale
