Osvaldo would not like to be like Lionel Messi

first_imgFormer footballer Osvaldo, revealed that he wouldn’t like being on Lionel Messi’s shoes because of how public his life if to the rest of the world.This week we had the chance to read a very interesting interview that Daniel Osvaldo did for Marca, the Argentine player who left professional football to pursue his music career and he spoke about many topics where he included Lionel Messi. The former Boca Jrs player revealed his bohemian life after retiring from football at a very young age, he now lives in Barcelona and plays music with his band called ‘Barrio Viejo’. The man really enjoys his life and it seems like football wasn’t really the calling he was expecting after all, instead he’s chosen to take the more hedonistic approach and get to experience the wilder side of life as a proper rock star. We don’t judge him for it and nobody should, the path he took is just as exciting if not more than the life of a professional football player and when he was asked if he would like to live Lionel Messi’s life he responded with a vociferous ‘NO’. But he explained his reasons to not want to be like his compatriot, living Leo Messi’s life can be one of the most complicated scenarios for anybody who doesn’t like living under the public eye at all times.’Messi has no life, he lives in a golden cage’ – Osvaldo https://t.co/fROTLDajFa pic.twitter.com/kQp0AyFfBp— 9javenue (@9javenue) September 25, 2018When asked if he would like to live Lío’s life, Osvaldo quickly said: “No. I would love to play like him though. I would get into fights with everyone because poor man, he doesn’t have a life! He lives in a prison made of gold. He could never be here having a drink on his own. Maybe he doesn’t even care about these things, but I do. At those levels you are not even in your home for long. You buy yourself the biggest television money can buy and you don’t even step foot on your TV room. Why would you want a Ferrari if you only go from your house to the training ground, which is 15 minutes away? I never cared about money, and yet I still spent money on stupid things. I still do, but I spend it on cheaper stuff. But I also don’t think he would like to live my life, the last time I saw him was when I gave him my record. He is not my friend, but he is one of those people who are likable, he hugs you when he sees you and he always has a good vibe. He even asked me: ‘Why do you like music?’ He didn’t understand me when I tried to explain, I believe he must think I’m crazy,” said Osvaldo during that long Marca interview about Messi.Dani Osvaldo on why he couldn’t be Ronaldo: “He gets home and does 150 sit ups. When I get home I like putting the fire on and grilling meat”On why he couldn’t be Messi: “He lives in a golden prison. If I were him then I wouldn’t be here drinking”PoeticDavid Villa, FC BarcelonaTop 10 players who played for both Barcelona and Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to talk about the best players who represented both Barcelona and Valencia, prior to their La Liga encounter at Camp Nou this evening.via @CB_Ignoranza pic.twitter.com/iZS56gJzSr— Matteo Bonetti (@TheCalcioGuy) September 24, 2018And we have to say that Osvaldo does have a pretty good point, players like Ronaldo or Messi will never live a private life as long as they breathe. We can take Diego Maradona’s example, he is a football legend who also loves to party sometimes and this “hobby” has brought him a lot of bad press throughout his life and even a stigma of being a bad example for children. Messi or Ronaldo need to take very good care of their image, because they would lose millions of euros if they slipped up badly like Osvaldo or Maradona have in their life. But the Argentine former player also added: “If I was Messi, I would never leave football, even if I wanted to. You are the best player in the world and that has a reason. This is not only the best thing you can do in the whole world, but you also have to dedicate your life to it 24 hours and 365 days every single year. But his talent does come more natural,” said Osvaldo about Messi’s complicated life as a professional.Osvaldo: I would like to play like Messi. I would get into fights with everyone, because he has no life, poor guy. He lives in a golden prison. He could not be here having a drink. Maybe he doesn’t care about that, but I do. At that level you aren’t even comfortable at home. pic.twitter.com/jf5Iz2ij1z— Juan G.

Prince Harrys inadvertent diss towards brother William Duke of Sussex makes insulting

first_imgPrince Harry and Dr. Jane GoodallThe Duke and Duchess of Sussex Official Instagram (sussexroyal)Meghan Markle’s Vogue issue seems to be more trouble than it was worth. Reportedly, Prince Harry appeared to make a “tactless” jibe directed at Prince William and Kate Middleton in Meghan Markle’s Vogue edition amid an ongoing alleged feud between the royal couples, a commentator claimed.There have been reports of an alleged feud brewing between the couples Cambridge and Sussex. And Prince Harry’s comments in the September issue of Vogue may have only added fuel to the fire. In the interview with Dr. Jane Goodall featured in the issue, Prince Harry stated that he won’t be having more than two children as he is thinking about the environment. Now, it is known that Harry’s elder brother Prince William has three children.Prince Harry’s comments may be construed as a dig at Prince William’s Family planning, maybe even his disregard for the environment.  Meghan MarkleThe Duke and Duchess of Sussex Official Instagram (sussexroyal)Prince Harry said: “I think, weirdly, because of the people that I’ve met and the places that I’ve been fortunate enough to go to, I’ve always had a connection and love for nature…..I view it differently now, without question.”He added: “I’ve always wanted to try and ensure that, even before having a child and hoping to have children…”He went on to say that he plans to have a maximum of two children. Now, the brothers have been growing apart for a while now. But they have always supported each other and refrained from snide remarks. Not that Prince Harry’s remarks are snide, far from it, in fact. But the public could see it as a lack of unity between the two Royal couples. We hope that Prince Harry and Prince William are able to put aside their differences and work together.last_img read more

Facebook Removes Disinformation Attributed to Iran and Russia

first_img Popular on Variety Turns out Russian intelligence agencies aren’t the only ones using Facebook for disinformation campaigns: The social media giant announced Tuesday afternoon that it had been able to identify and remove several hundred pages and accounts associated with Iranian state media.Separately, the company also removed content associated with Russian intelligence services, as well as a group of accounts associated with Middle East media organizations that acted in concert while pretending to represent independent entities.Some of the content associated with Iranian state media had been published by Liberty Front Press, a group that claims to be an independent media organization but that the company actually was able to link to Press TV, which is associated with Iranian state media.Liberty Front Press operated 74 Facebook pages and 70 Facebook accounts, as well as 76 accounts on Instagram. Its pages were followed by 155,000 Facebook accounts, and it held 3 events. A separate set of accounts associated with Liberty Front Press pretended to operate under the guise of other news organizations. These 66 accounts not only engaged in misinformation, but actually tried to hack the accounts of Facebook users and spread malware over the platform.Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg painted these measures as part of the company’s efforts to secure election integrity in a call with reporters Thursday afternoon. “2018 is a very important election year,” he said. “This is really serious, this is a top priority for our company.”However, the timing of the announcement raised some eyebrows: Facebook announced the account deletions just two hours after former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen pled guilty to campaign finance law violations and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was convicted of fraud, making it one of the busiest news days of the summer.center_img ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Big snub Only two Minister of State slots for Bengal BJP

first_imgNEW DELHI: With BJP’s sterling show in Bengal, it was widely speculated that it would get at least a cabinet berth in Modi’s new cabinet. However, it ended up with two ministers of state. Babul Supriyo, the singer- turned politician who fended off actress Moon Moon Sen in Asansol returns as a minister of state. Debasree Chaudhuri the BJP MP from Raiganj was also inducted as an MoS in the Modi cabinet. This is being viewed by political analysts as a royal snub to the BJP party cadre in Bengal. The BJP increased its tally in Bengal from two in 2014 to an impressive 18 seats this time around.last_img read more

Google Cloud releases a beta version of SparkR job types in Cloud

first_imgGoogle released a beta version of SparkR jobs on Cloud Dataproc, a cloud service that lets you run Apache Spark and Apache Hadoop in a cost-effective manner, earlier this week. SparkR Jobs will build R support on GCP. It is a package that delivers a lightweight front-end to use Apache Spark from R. This new package supports distributed machine learning using MLlib. It can be used to process against large cloud storage datasets and for performing work that is computationally intensive. Moreover, this new package also allows the developers to use “dplyr-like operations” i.e. a powerful R-package, which transforms and summarizes tabular data with rows and columns on datasets stored in Cloud Storage. The R programming language is very efficient when it comes to building data analysis tools and statistical apps. With cloud computing all the rage, even newer opportunities have opened up for developers working with R. Using GCP’s Cloud Dataproc Jobs API, it gets easier to submit SparkR jobs to a cluster without any need to open firewalls for accessing web-based IDEs or SSH onto the master node. With the API, it is easy to automate the repeatable R statistics that users want to be running on their datasets. Additionally, GCP for R also helps avoid the infrastructure barriers that put a limit on understanding data. This includes selecting datasets that need to be sampled due to compute or data size limits. GCP also allows you to build large-scale models that help analyze the datasets of sizes that would previously require big investments in high-performance computing infrastructures.

The BBCs governing body the BBC Trust has launc

first_imgThe BBC’s governing body, the BBC Trust, has launched a review into the BBC’s involvement in broadband TV service YouView.The review will focus on topics such as whether the BBC’s involvement in the scheme has impacted on other public service broadcasters’ approaches to making their content available to other platforms, and the way in which YouView is promoted by its partners.It will also look at the use of use of ‘editorial signposting’ to allow audiences to make informed choices about the content they watch, and at the access and usability features  for those who are blind or partially sighted.“We put in place conditions to ensure the public got the greatest possible benefit from YouView. Now almost 400,000 YouView boxes have been sold, this review is an opportunity to check that the conditions are working as they should,” said BBC Trustee Diane Coyle.In June 2010, the Trust approved the BBC’s involvement in YouView, subject to a number of conditions that it said it would review 12 months after launch. The service, which is backed by the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5, BT, TalkTalk and Arqiva, launched in July 2012. The Trust’s review is due to conclude this autumn.last_img read more
