Women’s rugby team pose nak3d in calendar photoshoot to raise money for their bankrupt club

The Carlisle Cougars posed as they performed drills wearing nothing but their socks in a series of risque snaps Vice captain Hannah Farrell, 26, said the experiencing was 'nerve-wracking'  but once they got going the players were happier without their kit. 'To be honest, we have joked about doing a naked calendar for years now, but we just never got round to it. 'We always thought it would be such a laugh, and a great way to raise money for the club, promote women's rugby and celebrate our strong bodies,' she explained. After Covid, the club was shut for a long time, so we thought now's the time to do it, raise m...

Senator Ted Cruz backs #FreeBritney as he takes battle to Capitol

Senator Ted Cruz is backing the call to free Britney Spears from her conservatorship arrangement. He took the demands of the #FreeBritney movement to Capitol Hill on Tuesday, September 28, saying there are better options than a conservatorship for Britney Spears and others in her situation. The Senator raised Britney's case in calling for reform on conservatorship law. He railed against the fact a grown woman "can't make basic decisions about her own life." Cruz said: "Even though she's a mother, to this day she can't make basic decisions about her own life, her own career, her own health or her own finances." He added, "It seems that at each critical juncture, the legal system has been designed not for her benefit but to trample on her rights." Cruz suggested that ...

Arsenal Make Approach to Sign Barcelona star for £25m

  Arsenal have approached Barcelona in a bid to sign right-back, Sergino Dest, according to Sport. The Gunners are in the market for a fullback, as Hector Bellerin is reportedly keen to leave the club this summer. Serie A champions Inter Milan have already registered their interest in Bellerin, as a replacement for Achraf Hakimi who has signed for Paris Saint-Germain. Arsenal are among the clubs who made an enquiry for Dest at the end of last season. Bayern Munich and Juventus also made approaches, but it is believed Dest wants to remain at Camp Nou. Barcelona, however, are desperate to offload players in order to balance their finances and the sale of Dest could bring in a €30 million (£25.7m) transfer fee. The LaLiga giants signed Dest in a €26.2m (£23.8m) d...

EPL: Tammy Abraham in shock move to Arsenal from Chelsea

Chelsea striker, Tammy Abraham, is set for a shock move to Arsenal. According to the Daily Telegraph, Arsenal is interested in signing Abraham this summer. Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, is keen on bringing Abraham to Emirates if a deal for the England international can be struck. Arsenal will now have to battle West Ham United for Abraham’s signature. Abraham is free to leave Chelsea this summer after falling out of favour under the Blues manager Thomas Tuchel’s squad last season. Chelsea wants to offload the 23-year-old to help fund a big-money move for Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland. Chelsea value Abraham at £40 million but it’s uncertain how high Arsenal is willing to bid for the forward in this current climate amid the COVID-19 pandemic that has hit all the c...

The former Ghana and Orlando Pirates stopper has a unique perspective on the continent’s game, having played in many of Africa’s biggest nations, but remains unclear as to how a Super League will work in the African game. For Dauda, it’s not yet clear how any Super League would benefit Africa’s top sides, nor how it could be executed considering the disparities in finances and ownership of continental clubs.

U.S Supreme Court Allows The Release Of Trump’s Tax Returns

Donald Trump suffered a major setback on Monday in his long quest to conceal details of his finances as the U.S. Supreme Court paved the way for a New York City prosecutor to obtain the former president’s tax returns and other financial records as part of a criminal investigation. The justices without comment rebuffed Trump’s request to put on hold an Oct. 7 lower court ruling directing the Republican businessman-turned-politician’s longtime accounting firm, Mazars USA, to comply with a subpoena to turn over the materials to a grand jury convened by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, a Democrat. “The work continues,” Vance said in a statement issued after the court’s action.

Newcastle chasing Benfica midfielder Rafa Silva

Newcastle United are chasing Benfica midfielder Rafa Silva. The Sun says Benfica initially valued Silva at £25m but Newcastle are only willing to bid up to £15m providing their budget isn't wiped out by the current global health crisis. The Magpies were one of the first clubs to furlough non-playing staff after the Premier League season was suspended to limit the damage on the club's finances. Newcastle still owe sizeable instalments on transfers they made last summer and paying off those fees will take priority over new arrivals. But that hasn't stopped them from lining up potential summer signings, though owner Mike Ashley won't commit to splashing the cash until he knows if and when the season will resume.

Any Man Who Doesn’t Show Commitment Financially Not Safe To – Bishop Abioye

The Senior Pastor of the Living Faith Church, Bishop David Abioye, has advised women against settling for men with no financial commitment. While delivering his sermon in his church recently, the clergyman stressed the importance of finances in a relationship. Speaking specifically to single women, the clergyman said ''Any man who doesn't show commitment financially is not safe for you to marry''. According to him, any woman who settles for a man with no financial commitment will end up being the one paying for the house rent, school fees and other very important things, once they get married.

Hi, Up until a few weeks ago, I never thought I could ever find myself advising a married woman on the need to keep certain information to herself, if indeed she desired peace in her marriage. The understanding in relationship and marriage counselling has always been that adequate communication between partners is the key to a successful co-existence. So, partners are always advised to be up straight with each other in everything they do. To see themselves as co-pilots of the aircraft which represents their union or relationship, thus, cooperation is key if they don’t want it to crash. ADVERTISING Withholding information on their dreams and aspirations, desires, finances, needs, friends and even movements at anytime, is believed to be capable of sparking off an argument which could lead to...

Judge Shuts Down Usher Accusers Efforts To Control His Finances

One of Usher's accusers has to keep her nose out of his bank accounts ... TMZ has learned. Laura Helm wanted the courts in Georgia to block Usher from hiding assets to make sure she could collect if she wins her $20 million lawsuit -- but the judge shut her down. In docs, obtained by TMZ, the judge said Helm has no right to say a peep about Usher's finances because he doesn't owe her anything yet. Further, Helm failed to present any legal precedent for the judge to block Usher at this stage ... according to the docs. Translation: Your request is BS, and denied.  Big W for Usher's Atlanta counsel, Steve Sadow.
