"Diego Simeone's side have reached the Champions League final in two of the last three seasons, losing to city rivals Real on both occasions, last year on penalties. They were also beaten by Real in the quarter-finals in 2015 and won the Europa League in 2012. The one encouraging factor for Leicester is Atletico have not been quite as strong in the league this season and sit fourth in La Liga, five points behind Sevilla." After their previous defeats to Atletico Leicester might be up for "revenge", says Ian Stringer of BBC Radio Leicester . "It's a winnable tie," he claims. "Atletico are fourth in La Liga and won't like the Foxes' style of play. They'll have seen how they dispatched Sevilla and won't be looking forward to Jamie Vardy running at them. Wishful thinking, maybe, but it's a good draw for City." In the Europa League Manchester United, the only other English team left in Europe, were drawn against Anderlecht, who are two points clear in the Belgian league.

Credits Matt Cardy/Stringer Alt Text St Davids Day Plaid Cymru says second attempt at Scottish breakaway would spell end of UK In Depth Tuesday, March 14, 2017 - 2:49pm Nicola Sturgeon's plans for a second Scottish independence vote has given fresh ammunition to separatist movements in Wales who are now demanding their own freedom from Westminster rule. Leanne Wood, leader of the Welsh nationalist party Plaid Cymru and head of opposition in the Welsh Assembly, said a vote for independence in Scotland would spell the "end of the UK as a state". "In that situation, Wales would need to decide its own future," she said in a statement. "A national debate to explore all of the options, including that of independent Wales, must take place in Wales when that scenario becomes a realistic one." Is there a case for Welsh independence? In Scotland, which overwhelmingly voted against Brexit in the June 2016 referendum, the Scottish National Party argues that independence is the only way to avoid following the UK out of the EU.

It is very indicative of a vegetarian diet, probably the true Paleo diet. So why such a difference? According to Weyrich, it's a difference in environment. In Belgium, wide open spaces with grasslands had many mammals, but in Spain, the Neanderthals lived in dense forests. It's hard to imagine a big woolly rhino trying to wedge themselves between the trees, says Weyrich. Perhaps we shouldn't be surprised that Neanderthals are adapting to local conditions and varying their diets, says Chris Stringer, from the Natural History Museum in London. He mentions findings that revealed Neanderthals living on the coast of Gibraltar were collecting molluscs and baking them. They were butchering at least one seal. There [was] dolphin material at the site. That may have been stranded dolphin that they scavenged.

Description Geert Wilders speaks at a conference of European right-wing parties in German Credits Thomas Lohnes / Stringer Alt Text Geert Wilders speaks in German The anti-Islamic, anti-EU MP is riding high in the polls, but will his campaign of outrage end in success? Profile Friday, March 10, 2017 - 2:44pm Few politicians are receiving as much media coverage - or stirring up as much controversy – in the Netherlands as Party for Freedom (PVV) leader and founder Geert Wilders. The blond, bouffant-haired 53-year-old, who has compared the Koran to Hitler's Mein Kampf, has become the latest face of anti-Islamic sentiment in Europe. In the wake of what the Washington Post calls a "global wave of populism that turned 2016 upside down", Wilders's political stance has him neck-and-neck with Prime Minister Mark Rutte ahead of the country's general election on 15 March, according to the latest polls.

Enlarge (credit: AFP/Stringer) A few months ago we reported that the " devil was in the details " about how Sony Playstation 3 owners could go about getting either $9 or $55 from Sony as part of a class-action settlement over a 2010 software update that removed the ability to run Linux on the popular gaming consoles. The California judge presiding over the litigation is now killing the proposed settlement amid concerns the lawyers representing the class haven't explained why they should get $2.25 million for their legal services, especially considering that the deal has made it burdensome on gamers to get their cash. Of the gamers who tried to get their $55 refund, 25 percent have been rejected. "The Court has concerns, based upon how the notice and claims process preceded, the results it produced, and the disproportionality of the attorneysfees versus the class recovery, that the settlement agreement is not fair, reasonable, and adequate," US District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers ruled , (PDF) a decision that reversed her earlier order that tentatively backed the pact.

” “This issue is deeply personal to me,” repeated Ibrahim. “I want you to know that this city is here to protect you, with every tool at our disposal, including holding violators of the New York City human rights law accountable and protecting those most vulnerable amongst us.” In addition to advocates and grassroots organizers, city and state representatives spoke at the podium, promising solidarity to victimized New Yorkers. Stating “this city can’t live and function without immigrants,” city comptroller Scott Stringer estimated the annual spending power of immigrants to be in the billions. “To my Muslim brothers and sisters, as a Jewish American, I want to see a united world and the way to do that is dump Trump and take to the streets.” Councilwoman Helen Rosenthal called the banning of refugees “a stunning betrayal of our moral responsibility.

We are a city made greater by the blood, sweat and tears of immigrants and refugees, and we will not close our borders, James told the crowd. We will not close our shores. The reason is why New York City is great is because we are an immigrant town and a sanctuary city. And any threat to any group, to African Americans, to Jews, to Muslims ― it doesnt matter ― any threat to any group is a threat to all of us, she added. Scott Stringer, New York Citys comptroller, said that as a Jewish American, I stand with the Muslim community, because today and every day in New York City, we are one people. I stand together with you, because when they come for you, they come for me, and when they come for me, they have come for you! Im very proud to represent 150 different nations that speak 150 different languages, not just as a city elected official, he added.
