Mother of Australian surfers killed in Mexico gives moving tribute to sons at a beach in San Diego

[ad_1] MEXICO CITY — The mother of two Australian surfers killed in Mexico delivered a moving tribute to her sons Tuesday at a beach in San Diego. “Our hearts are broken and the world has become a darker place for us,” Debra Robinson said, fighting back tears. “They were young men enjoying their passion of surfing together.” Her sons, Callum and Jake, were allegedly killed by car thieves in Baja California, across the border from San Diego, somewhere around April 28 or 29.  Robinson also mourned the American who was killed with them, Jack Carter Rhoad. The beachside location where she spoke, across the border from the Baja California city of Tijuana, was no coincidence. She noted that her son Callum “considered the United States his second home.” Robinson noted that her son Jake loved surfing so much that, as a doctor, he liked to work in hospitals near the beach. “Jake’s passion was surfing, and it was no coincidence that many of his hospitals that he worked in were close to surfing beaches,” she said. Choking …

Moving Target – The New York Times

Moving Target – The New York Times

[ad_1] Back in the years 2020 and 2021, years that are increasingly easy to categorize as “the past” rather than the ongoing present, I worked from home every day, and on most of those days I exercised from home, too. In the late morning between meetings, or around lunchtime, I rode a stationary bike or lifted weights or danced to Rihanna with a choreographer who broadcast a daily live class from an enviable house in Joshua Tree. It was easy, in those days when nothing much else was easy, to find time to exercise. The routine that had evaded me most of my life was, during those years, achievable. In the years since, this routine has become unrealistic most of the time. Days are once again organized around the office and its commute. The options for how to spend nonwork time are no longer confined to a limited lockdown menu of what can be accomplished at a distance of six feet or more. Exercise has, once again, become something that I put on a to-do …

Kyrie Irving Is Still Perfect in Closeout Games, and Moving on With Luka Doncic and the Mavs

Kyrie Irving Is Still Perfect in Closeout Games, and Moving on With Luka Doncic and the Mavs

[ad_1] DALLAS (AP) — Kyrie Irving wowed the crowd with a crossover move that helped create just enough space for him to let fly with a leaning 3-pointer. Luka Doncic’s co-star with the Dallas Mavericks was bumped and fell with the shot in the air, and his teammates were right there to mob him when the shot went in as the whistle blew. The four-point play was a punctuating moment in a 114-101 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday night that sent the Mavericks into the second round of the playoffs with a 4-2 series victory. Dallas beat LA for the first time in three first-round tries over the past five seasons — and Irving improved to 13-0 in closeout games for his career. “When I think about 13-0 in closeout games in general, I just know you’ve just got to get there to that point to be able to be ready to have the other team submit,” said Irving, who scored 28 of his 30 points in the second half. “It’s one …

Maradona’s children call for moving body to mausoleum for safety and tribute

[ad_1] BUENOS AIRES : Diego Maradona’s children filed a request with the Argentine Courts on Thursday to move the former football great’s body “to a much safer place” and for fans “to pay tribute” in a mausoleum.

Only family members are allowed to enter the cemetery. The mausoleum, called “Memorial del Diez,” is located behind the Casa Rosada, the seat of the executive branch of the Argentine government, and will be open to the public, Veronica Ojeda, mother of Maradona’s youngest son, told local media. “All the heirs request by common agreement to authorise the transfer to his next destination of eternal rest (…) in a much safer place than the current one,” said the note presented to the court signed by Dalma and Gianinna Maradona, and Ojeda on behalf of Diego Maradona Jr. “And so that all the Argentine people and the citizens of the world can pay homage to our …

Moving up a division is worth the weight for India’s Borgohain

Moving up a division is worth the weight for India’s Borgohain

[ad_1] NEW DELHI : Indian boxer Lovlina Borgohain will step onto the scales a bit heavier at the Paris Olympics but feeling like a weight has been lifted from her shoulders. The 26-year-old is set to compete in the women’s 75kg event this summer after the 69kg division, in which she won a bronze at the Tokyo Olympics, was scrapped from the Paris programme. Moving up a division brings her closer to her natural weight range, liberating her from the constant battle to satisfy the scales. She is even tempted to call it a blessing in disguise. “Being an athlete, you have to be prepared for any kind of situation,” she told Reuters from the north Indian city of Patiala, where she is honing her Olympic preparations. “I knew I had to adapt to the changes, so moving up to this category was the obvious choice. “Transitioning to the 75kg (category) has been a good experience. Now I don’t need to monitor my weight to the same extent.” While Borgohain does not miss the days …

Bella Hadid Is ‘Not Putting on a Fake Face’ After Stepping Back From Modeling and Moving to Texas

[ad_1] Bella Hadid is in a new season — and feeling more like herself! In a new interview with Allure, the 27-year-old speaks about her time living in Texas after she decided to step away from the modeling industry following a decade-long career.  According to Hadid, being in a position where she can decide on her daily looks and how much face time she wants to give — even on days when she’s not feeling her best — is something very new for her. Bella Hadid says she is taking more time for herself since stepping away from modeling. – Getty Images “For the first time now, I’m not putting on a fake face. If I don’t feel good, I won’t go. If I don’t feel good, I take time for myself. And I’ve never had the opportunity to do that or say that before,” Hadid told the publication. “Now when anybody sees me in pictures and they say, I look happy, I genuinely am. I am feeling better; my bad days now were my …
