The Duchess took up her role in 2007 and this will be the eighth time that families supported by the charity, along with hospice staff, have been invited to decorate the Clarence House Christmas tree.Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity was founded more than 25 years ago by Felicity Dahl in memory of the determination of her husband Roald Dahl, the famous children’s author, to improve the lives of those around him.The charity provides specialist nurses for a range of conditions to ensure all seriously ill children and their families receive the support they need and deserve.Working in tandem with the NHS, the charity has now funded 58 specialist nursing posts around the UK, helping more than 12,000 seriously ill children and their families each year.During the festivities, it was announced that The Duchess of Cornwall has been named as the new Royal Patron of Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity.Jane Miles, chief executive of the organisation, said: “This is absolutely marvellous, The Duchess becoming our patron.”She added: “Anybody who knew Roald Dahl knew he was all about innovation and imagination so we’re trying to look at innovative ways to help these children.“We’re very aware there are so many groups in this country who are underfunded, so if you think about the Roald Dahl stories, they were all about the underdog emerging victorious so that is what this charity wishes to focus on.“With The Duchess of Cornwall highlighting these groups – like sickle cell and rare diseases – it will be great for her to raise awareness so people get to understand more about the adversity suffered by these children.”After the Christmas tree was decorated, the children and young adults were invited to share lunch with Her Royal Highness, which featured Christmas tree-shaped biscuits and mince pies (of course!)Source:PrinceOfWales.Govt.UKlast_img read more

Ottawa poised to offer financial assistance to newspapers in upcoming budget

OTTAWA — All signs point to print media getting a much-needed financial assist from the federal government in the next budget.The financing is expected to be doled out through the Canada Periodical Fund, which currently assists print magazines, non-daily newspapers and digital periodicals.Heritage Minister Melanie Joly reportedly discussed the matter during a meeting Thursday with representatives of the Federation nationale des communications, which represents 7,000 people who work in culture and communications.Postmedia records $5.8 million profit for fiscal first quarterPostmedia CEO Paul Godfrey says newspapers will survive but with reduced numbersJoly’s spokesman, Simon Ross, didn’t deny the report and says there will be an announcement in the coming weeks or months concerning the $75-million annual fund, which is currently under review.Ross said the government wants to correct some of the problems with the fund “to adapt it to the digital age” because it was created before the advent of the internet.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told Quebec Le Soleil last week he was preoccupied with the financial crisis facing media in Canada and that the decision on federal funding would come in the next budget. read more

Government says no JF17 deal with Pakistan

Terming the reports as “incorrect,” Mahishini Colonne, spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, responded, saying that “if there arises a requirement for Sri Lanka to procure aircraft of this nature, in keeping with the policy of the Government of Sri Lanka to maintain transparency, expressions of interest will be called for, from all concerned.” The Government has denied reports that it has struck a deal with Pakistan for the purchase of JF-17 Thunder fighter jets, The Hindu newspaper reported.“The matter did not even come up for discussion during the talks [with the Pakistani government],” Karunasena Hettiarachchi, Defence Secretary, told The Hindu , adding that his government was still considering the purchase of fighter jets. According to the reports, Sri Lanka has been under pressure from the Indian government not to go ahead. Sections of the press, in the last few months, also carried reports that India had offered to Sri Lanka “Tejas,” a variant of Light Combat Aircraft, to counter Pakistan’s bid to sell JF-17 fighters, which were developed in collaboration with China.

Africas Lake Chad Basin Over 21 billion pledged to provide comprehensive crisis

Achim Steiner, the Administrator for the UN Development Programme (UNDP) said that the promised funds amounted to a “strong endorsement” of the Organization’s work, to address both urgent humanitarian needs and the root causes of the crisis.“In this way, our response to a crisis is also an opportunity to invest in a future where crises are less likely and nations are more resilient,” he said.The two day High-Level Conference on the Lake Chad Region, was organized in Berlin, by UNDP and the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), together with the governments of Germany, Norway and Nigeria.It brought together more than 70 countries, regional organizations, international financial institutions and humanitarian organizations to discuss immediate relief needs, crisis prevention and stabilization, as well as development, to chart a way forward for a comprehensive and inclusive response.In this way, our response to a crisis is also an opportunity to invest in a future where crises are less likely and nations are more resilient – Achim Steiner, UNDP AdministratorAccording to OCHA, the conference also provided an “excellent opportunity” for in-depth deliberations on issues emerging from last February’s Oslo humanitarian conference on the region, that raised some $650 million in pledges for humanitarian programmes in 2017 and beyond.“Participants agreed that a coherent, multi-year approach is needed, that integrates all available instruments to tackle the protection crisis and the root causes of the conflict,” said the organizers in a news release.“This is needed to pave the way for sustainable and resilient development of the region, and thus contribute to a better future for the affected people.”The conference also highlighted the regional dimension of the Lake Chad crisis, and the crucial role of local actors, cross-border cooperation and ownership at all levels.More than 17 million people across the four Lake Chad Basin countries – Nigeria, Cameroon, Chad and Niger – remain mired in a complex crisis driven by extreme poverty, climate change and violent conflict.As a result, more than 2.4 million are displaced and over 10 million people need more assistance to meet their basic protection and humanitarian needs. read more

49 Voices Carol Waldo of Haines

first_imgCarol Waldo of Haines (Photo by Daysha Eaton, KHNS – Haines)This week we’re hearing from Carol Waldo in Haines. Waldo owns Glacier Bay Farms, which is set to become one of the first pot businesses in the city. 70 years ago she left Iowa with her family, and drove up the Alaska Highway.Listen nowWALDO: I never really asked my parents, for sure, why they came to Alaska because it was a long ways from home. My dad was in the Navy, and when he came back from the war in November of 1945, I think he had seen some of the world and I think after the war, there just wasn’t any jobs and he heard there were jobs in Alaska. My mom worked all during the war and my grandmother took care of us, and my mom saved her salary. So we had enough money to live for over a year without my dad doing anything.There were three of us when we came to Alaska: my older brother and my younger brother and myself. In the years to follow there were three more children born. And, you have to remember, that was the time of polio — and there was no polio vaccine. A lot of kids were coming down with polio. And I think they thought living in a smaller community, kind of isolated like Haines, there was a healthier environment for the kids.But the road was terrible, and there were very few places to stay. And most of them weren’t very clean. So they bought a tent and sleeping bags and we camped out. They cooked their own food because a lot of those roadhouse were… they had bed bugs and fleas and you name it.Arriving in Haines was kind of a cultural shock because the town… there was only about 300 people.I never heard my parents complain about it. I never heard them say it was a tough trip. They just, I don’t know. They survived the Depression and the war. I guess they thought we were on vacation. I don’t know.last_img read more

Saudi Arabia to not execute teenager arrested for taking part in antigovt

first_imgMurtaja Qureiris was 13-years-old when he was arrested for participating in anti-government protests.CNNA young man from Saudi Arabia who was arrested when he was 13-years-old for participating in an anti-government protest will not be executed and could be released by 2022, officials have confirmed.The man, identified as Murtaja Quereris, was arrested by the Saudi officials back in September 2014. He was granted an initial 12 year jail term, which includes time served in prison since his arrest. After four years of probation, he is currently left with three years of prison term left to serve, sources revealed to Reuters.As a child, Quereris was sent to the detention centre for participating in bike protests in Saudi Arabia’s Eastern Province during the Arab Spring uprising in 2011. He was later moved to al-Mabaheth prison in May 2017, an adult facility, even though he was still only 16 years old.The charges held against him include participating in anti-government protests, attending the funeral of his brother, Ali Qureiris (killed in a protest in 2011), joining a “terrorist organisation,” throwing Molotov cocktails at a police station and firing at security forces.Qureiris case caught international attention after CNN did an investigative piece the teenager boy who was facing death penalty by the Saudi government. The report and later human rights group, Amnesty International highlighted the issue of state-sponsored anti-dissent executions of those who participated in anti-government rallies in Saudi Arabia.It is argued that Qureiris’ case is part of the government’s crackdown of Shi’a minorities and political dissenters since the Crown prince Muhammad bin Salman took over the throne in 2015.In April, officials had carried out the execution of two minors including Abdulkareem al-Hawaj, a Shi’a boy who was arrested when he was 16-years old based on offences related to involvement in anti-government protests. He was among 37 men put to death in one day as part of an execution spree. Most of the executed men belonged to the Shi’a community.According to the Interior Ministry, Saudi Arabia executed 139 people in 2018.last_img read more

Whats Next For Houstons Ambitious Bike Trail Project

first_imgListen – / 3The Bayou Greenways project will create a continuous bike trail system along nine Houston waterways.Beth White with the Houston Parks Board says it’s currently one of the biggest recreation projects in the country. “When we’re finished in 2020, we’ll have over 150 miles of trail system in the fourth-largest city in the United States,” says White.The newest trail to open is a two-mile section along White Oak Bayou in the Heights.  As for what happens next, White says they’re focusing on segments that connect existing trails, so cyclists can travel farther without having to mingle with cars.“You’ll see ribbon-cuttings over the next six months where we’re ready to put shovels in the ground,” adds White.The Bayou Greenways project is costing about $220 million. About $100 million comes from a bond issue voters approved in 2012. There’s also been an extensive fundraising campaign.

Group Nine Media to Sit Out NewFronts in 2019 Will Stage MultiCity

first_img Popular on Variety Group Nine Media, the Discovery-back digital media publisher, says it has a slate of over 50 original shows premiering in 2019. But it won’t be showcasing them at the Digital Content NewFronts marketing confabs this year.Instead, Group Nine will take the show on the road with a series of presentations across the U.S. showcasing its four brands: Thrillist, NowThis, The Dodo and Seeker. The “Nine-Fronts” roadshow will kick off in April. The initial phase of the series will hit New York, L.A., San Francisco, Chicago, Dallas and Boston. The company hasn’t set a schedule of dates or venues yet.Group Nine participated in the New York run of NewFronts in 2018 and 2017. The Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB), which manages the NewFronts, has not officially announced dates for the 2019 session. Unlike the TV industry’s upfronts — aimed at selling ad inventory ahead of the fall television season — digital-media players don’t have a finite bucket of advertising avails or a specific time of year when they launch new content.The advertising opportunities developed by Group Nine “aren’t limited to a season or a cultural event,” Christa Carone, president of Group Nine, said in a statement. “With a social-first, mobile-first mindset, we’re always connecting with our audiences in the moment and providing partners with the contextual relevance to do the same.”Given the cost of holding NewFronts presentations — which deliver promotional value, but don’t necessarily result in hard-revenue deals — IAB has faced a simmering pushback from companies over the last few years. In 2018, the trade group truncated the original New York series to one week (instead of two) and added a two-day L.A. event in October, in part to cater to companies that wanted to reach West Coast marketers.According to Group Nine, the company’s brands collectively reach 75% of U.S. consumers 18-34. The company claims to be the No. 1 content publisher on mobile in the U.S. and that its brands generate over 5 billion monthly video views.Privately held Group Nine was formed in 2016 with a $100 million investment from Discovery, combining three startups backed by Lerer Hippeau Ventures — Thrillist, NowThis Media and the Dodo — with Seeker (formerly Discovery Digital Networks). It subsequently raised a $40 million follow-on round from Discovery, Axel Springer and Lerer Hippeau Ventures.center_img ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

MovieBob Reviews ASSASSINS CREED 2016

first_imgStay on target MovieBob Reviews: ‘Shadow’MovieBob Reviews: ‘The Curse of La Llorona’ Assassin’s Creed is a series of popular video games (or rather, a series of video games that were popular for a couple of years – a couple of years ago) set in various meticulously recreated historical periods and chronicling the centuries long battle between the world-domination scheming Templars and their nemesis The Assassins. The “gimmick” of the games, however, is that despite this, they’re technically set in the present: The historical periods we’re seeing are actually the visions of various protagonists who are hooked up to a machine called The Animus that lets one relive the genetic memories of their ancestors… who without fail tend to have been Assassins, because nobody was going to play Accounts Receivable Manager’s Creed.Ostensibly, this gimmick is meant to be Assassin’s Creed’s in-game explanation for why time-jumps, invisible boundaries, pop-ins and other “video-gamey stuff” is happening in Rennaissance Italy (or The Crusades, or Colonial New England, or wherever,) but in practice it’s also an interesting example of a narrative conceit that really only works in the context of a game: Unlike in a passive viewing scenario, it doesn’t really matter that what we’re seeing is “just a simulation” of something that already happened – and thus doesn’t really possess any real tension – because we’re playing it and still have to trigger the proper sequence of events. Clever and functional!But in a movie? Yeah, that was always going to be the problem: The actual plot is telling us that all the Assassin stuff doesn’t actually matter because it’s just a video feed of a wonky sci-fi flashback device, but the Assassins are all anyone really cares about – that’s why they get the fancy hoodies and the parkour and the elaborate martial arts business. So instead, the Assassin’s Creed movie decides to relegate the Assassins themselves to the B-story and focus on the present-day… which anyone who’s played an Assassin’s Creed game can tell you is always the most tedious fucking part. What could go wrong?Well, everything – but yet also nothing. We’ve pretty much known for over a year that the Assassin’s Creed movie was going to be a pile of ass because otherwise why would they dump something fairly expensive (and full of fairly well-regarded movie stars) to die at the holiday box office against all the family-friendly blockbusters, after all. But what’s shocking is just how empty it is. The action is barely passable, the look of everything is hopelessly generic, the story is stripped bare and totally uninvolving, there isn’t a single memorable or remotely interesting thing going on in it.The only noteworthy thing I was able to take away is that it’s ugly as all hell – every scene looks like it’s been processed through a different hideously-unpleasant Instagram filter. The present-day “laboratory” scenes are bathed in a blue-gray sheen that evokes nothing so much as pretentious cologne commercials. The Assassin flashbacks are a muddy brown mess where a constant haze of smoke and grit works to obscure shockingly weak CGI and a paucity of things actually going on. A drawn-out finale involving the modern-day Templars looks like a direct rip from the same basic faux-Illuminati nonsense from the last James Bond movie, only somehow more boring.In case you were wondering, we aren’t following any of the known protagonists from any of the various games – after all, that might have been interesting. Instead, we’ve got Michael Fassbender trying to chomp his way through the scenery in a nothing role as a death row inmate. He gets grabbed up by the Templars because he’s the last known descendant of an Assassin from Inquisition-era Spain who was the last person known to possess the magic McGuffin (“The Apple of Eden” – no, really) the bad guys are looking for. Jeremy Irons is the Templar running the program at Abstergo Inc.; Marion Cotillard is the scientist running the Animus, Michael K. Williams, Brendan Gleeson and Charlotte Rampling are… also in this, for some reason (well, okay, Gleeson is playing Fassbender’s estranged father, but I couldn’t explain who Williams and a handful of fellow Animus lab-rats are or what they’re meant to be doing.)It’s pretty obvious that the studio knew they had a bomb on their hands for awhile because it shows every sign of having been cut to shreds in the vain hope that it’ll at least be fast-paced enough to function as a disposable second choice for action fans. There are dozens of characters in both time periods, but we barely learn their names and their motivations remains murky outside of who’s a Templar, who’s an Assassin and… that’s kind of it, I guess. The Inquisition-era scenes feature a female Assassin played by newcomer Ariane Labed who has the most screen presence of anybody (and looks more dynamic in her action beats than Fassbender) but I’d be at a loss to tell you her character’s name or the nature of her eventually plot-necessary connection to the hero. The sheer level of apathy the film inspires is really something to behold.I mean, let’s be clear: This might have at least been mildly enjoyable. The plot is a bunch of nonsense, but it has all the same basic components as those DaVinci Code movies and those are usually entertaining on their own dopey merits. So taking that and adding a bunch of parkour ninja stuff with a dash of National Treasure should be a slam dunk for at least some dumb fun at least if they aren’t going to bother to try and be good. But what puts the final nail in Assassin’s Creed is that it’s so incredibly self-serious: It doesn’t just fail to see the inherent humor in its ridiculous premise, nobody in the cast ever seems to be fully awake. They’re as bored by this as we are, blandly mouthing expositional dialogue without a sign of life. All except Fassbender, who for some reason digs into this bullshit like he thinks he’s about to morph into Daniel Day-Lewis any second now (a particularly contrived sequence lets him get dragged around-mid breakdown while belting out a manic cover of Patsy Cline’s “Crazy,” so yeah – one of those.)I wish I could even muster some righteous anger here, but the plain fact is Assassin’s Creed is a nothing movie that isn’t even good at being disposable… which maybe makes it the perfect piece of shit to close out a genuinely miserable year on this planet. Don’t take the leap.last_img read more

Tyre tips that everyone can use

first_imgDuncan and Petunia’s wedding day is finally a mere week away, and what a ride it’s been.Just a few weeks ago, between searching for the right wedding venue and drawing up a budget, their journey has not been without a few bumps on the road.As the couple enter a new chapter in their lives, they fondly remember the many experiences they’ve shared, particularly while on the road.“Remember that time you got a flat tyre on your way to our engagement party?” Petunia asks Duncan, as they cosy up to an evening glass of wine.“Of course! How could I forget?” Duncan chuckles. “The funny thing is that my flat tyre was just the start of other hiccups with my car. If it weren’t for Dunlop, I don’t know what we would have done.”Luckily, Duncan knew how to change his car tyre, and managed to drive safely to his nearest Dunlop Zone from Ladysmith to ensure that everything checked out. Not many know how to change their tyres, and this puts them at risk.“Let’s not forget the time my car suddenly started skidding off the road,” Petunia added. “I knew my wheels were worn, but not to that extent. My tread depth was below one millimetre. ”Skidding is a tell-tale [sign of worn tyres.] In some cases, if one continues to drive with tyres in such a state, it can be risky for both driver and car. Always ensure that you have tread depth of one millimetre, as per the legal recommendation. You’ll be a safe, and so will your car.Use the following quick tips to avoid a tyre failure: Inspect – Check all your tyres frequently for any signs of irregularities or damage like sidewall damage, cuts, scuffs and bulges. Be aware of punctures – If you find you often have to top up your tyres with air, there is a possibility that you have a small puncture, which should be repaired as soon as possible. Watch out for potholes – The scourge of our roads are often difficult to avoid and invariably crop up when we least expect it. Tread carefully – Tyre treads that are worn or smooth on the roads are dangerous, especially in the wet because smooth tyres lack the grip needed for your car to stay firmly on the road. Remember the spare – It’s vital to remember your spare tyre when checking the condition of your other tyres.Because of their frequent visits to the Dunlop Zone, and actively monitoring any changes to their car, they can rest easy that come wedding day, their cars will be in top form.For more tyre care tips and advice, follow Dunlop on Twitter and Facebook, and click here to download your free Dunlop Zone Tyre Tips booklet.Why not join us in our conversation!

How do you cure this?”If he was expecting serious medical advice, he would have been better off consulting WebMD than Costa Rica Twitter, which lambasted the lawmaker who ran for president in the 2014 elections.Here are some of the best reactions from Twitter users Tuesday:“When you get to your first gym class and everybody is at an advanced level.” pic.twitter.com/2QFEp7gzQ2— Edux (@eduxmonge) December 1, 2015 Nueva ficha de @BomberosCR pic.twitter.com/7xy9z9AufH— carl Ox (@crlsmrt) December 1, 2015 pic.twitter.com/Dkf23pldH9— Edux (@eduxmonge) December 1, 2015 “If I stay still maybe they won’t see me.” “After seeing what I have to pay for my marchamo.” #TWD #OscarLopez pic.twitter.com/RstO3qun4O— Politcr (@Politcr) December 1, 2015center_img “A new Costa Rican fireman.” pic.twitter.com/V2H5K6VIED— Edux (@eduxmonge) December 1, 2015 “Ideas for Christmas decoration.”https://twitter.com/elchamuko/status/671762461045862400 #oscarlopez #ConfusedTravolta pic.twitter.com/FrtsMvfFkf— Noé Arias (@jnoearias) December 1, 2015 Facebook Comments @olopezmotivador pic.twitter.com/ssuDfp00Rd— Fabio Castro (@fabiocs10) December 1, 2015 listo el pasito. pic.twitter.com/nKGgpGgLYC— Peralta (@HechoPicha_CR) December 1, 2015 Related posts:Twitter removes fake President Luis Guillermo Solís account Obama finally gets a Twitter account President Laura Chinchilla expresses dismay with low voter turnout in presidential runoff Bolivian president asks to see child born to ex-girlfriend #oscarlopez #sadkeanu #coldoscar pic.twitter.com/eQ3CWmMetL— Pablo Castillo (@pablo_castillo) December 1, 2015last_img read more

LISTEN Darren Urban AZCardinalscom

first_imgLISTEN: Darren Urban, AZCardinals.com Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Darnell Dockett’s 11-year tenure with the Arizona Cardinals appears to be over.The 33-year-old defensive tackle, who was set to enter the final year of his contract, has been cut by the team, general manager Steve Keim announced Friday.“We have been very clear about our feelings for Darnell and our desire to have him back,” Keim said in a press release. “After speaking with him and his representatives, we decided that this move today makes the most sense for both the team and the player and allows each to keep all of its options open.” “I think it’s good that this door apparently remains open. I think that makes everybody a little bit more comfortable if he is able to come back here because Darnell will know exactly what the possibility (of a better contract) could have been on the market because he’s going to be able to see it now.”The Cardinals drafted Dockett in the third round (64th overall) of the 2004 NFL Draft. He recorded 40.5 sacks, including a career-high nine in 2007. He missed the entire 2014 season after suffering an ACL tear in preseason play. Comments   Share   Your browser does not support the audio element. With Dockett’s release, the Cardinals will gain $6.8 million in salary cap room for the upcoming season, according to azcardinals.com’s Darren Urban.ESPN Stats and Info reports Dockett’s release, combined with the restructured contract of wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, will result in a savings of $19.6 million against the cap in 2015.On Tuesday, Keim said the Cards were looking to re-work Dockett’s contract in order to lower his projected cap hit in 2015.Urban noted a return to the Cardinals following a release “is not unprecedented,” as the team cut offensive tackle Levi Brown in 2012 before re-signing him two days later.“If you just kind of read the comments from Steve Keim in the release, it feels like there’s still that door being open,” Urban told Burns and Gambo on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM Friday. Urban said Dockett will have plenty of time to gauge the market before the NFL’s free agency period begins March 10. He said Dockett and the Cardinals should know “sooner rather than later” whether he will re-sign with the team.“I think that he would be able to get fairly quickly an idea of what he’ll be valued at around the league and know how to measure that against whatever the Cardinals might be offering,” he said.

Expert says son not involved in parents brutal killing

first_imgAn expert hired by the family of a teacher who was brutally murdered along with his wife in Nicosia last week suggested Thursday that the case was a robbery gone bad and the couple’s 15-year-old son had nothing to do with it.Former state pathologist Marios Matsakis’ claims came a day after police arrested a 33-year-old man in connection with the case.Investigators apparently have evidence that puts the man at the location at the time of the crime. He is expected to be brought before a court later Thursday.The man is said to have a prior record relating to burglaries and drugs.Matsakis, who examined the crime scene on Zallongos Street in Strovolos the previous day, claimed the couple’s adopted son was not implicated.“My position is that it was a robbery gone bad,” he told state radio. “I have all the evidence and I can help police if I am asked.”Police did not respond to Matsakis’ claims, saying any details will be heard in court during the suspect’s remand hearing.Last Thursday, English School maths teacher Giorgos Hadjigeorgiou, 60, and his 59-year-old wife, Dina Sergiou, who worked for the central bank, were found stabbed to death in their home.Hadjigeorgiou was stabbed between 25 to 30 times and his wife 10 times. They both had one defensive wound each on their right arms, a post-mortem revealed.The couple’s son, the sole witness to the crime, had claimed two hooded perpetrators had forced entry into the house and told him they would not harm him. The boy managed to flee, running to a neighbouring house.Police said last week they found no sign of forced entry or robbery.You May LikeStyleBistroYou Might Not Recognize Some Celebs At Their First VMAsStyleBistroUndoReal Income Solo AdsSolo Ad Vendor | Real Income Solo AdsReal Income Solo AdsUndoSoftware AdviceThe 5 Best Project Management Dashboards, ComparedSoftware AdviceUndo Famagusta municipality says Varosha entry goes against UN regulationsUndoBritain preparing for a no-deal BrexitUndoHouse rejects presidential veto over repossession lawUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
