Marcus Rashford mural vandalised just minutes after England’s Euro loss

Graffiti has been scrawled across the artwork, which depicts the much-loved Manchester United forward. The indecipherable lettering, daubed in blue paint on Sunday night, can barely be seen over the powerful black and white image.

The portrait, created last November, stands across a wall in the Withington area of Manchester, not far from where the footballer grew up. 

It’s the second time the same mural has been targeted by yobs in eight months, Manchester Evening News reports.

Rashford, 23, saw his penalty hit the post in the shootout last night.

He was one three England players to miss their spot-kicks during the tense lottery at Wembley in the final of Euro 2020.

But Rashford, who in the past year has been celebrated for spearheading a campaign for all children to have free school meals, received support online.

One post reads: “We were robbed. Saka, Rashford we got you – we are proud of you Raised fist @MarcusRashford @BukayoSaka87”

Another says: “People soon forget the great things someone has done just because of one mistake. They all should be proud of how far they took England, no other team has done that before.”

A third states: “Disgusting behaviour – show some respect. Players need our respect and should be applauded for their commitment.”

How to live longer: Promote longevity in 20 minutes by quitting smoking

If you make it 12 hours without smoking, the body begins to eradicate carbon monoxide – a poisonous gas – from the body, enabling oxygen levels to increase. If you continue on this path, other health benefits come your way. As pointed out by Stop Smoking London – a campaign supported by the NHS to improve the nation’s health – one full day without smoking can:

  • Reduce blood pressure
  • Improve circulation
  • Reduce your risk of heart disease.

Within two days of being a non-smoker, the receptors in your nerves begin to heal, helping to restore your sense of taste and smell.

If you forgo three days without picking up the unhealthy habit, all the nicotine will now be completely removed from your body.

It’s at this point that nicotine withdrawal might occur, but remember that each craving will pass if you don’t feed the addiction.

Nicotine withdrawal symptoms

The NHS pointed out that you might experience:

  • Restlessness
  • Irritability
  • Frustration
  • Tiredness
  • Difficulty sleeping or concentrating.

“You may get a chesty cough, but this is positive – it means your body is getting rid of the debris in your lungs,” the NHS clarified.

You may find that exercising from this landmark stage becomes easier and easier, as breathlessness starts to fade.

By the nine-month mark, your lungs will have significantly healed as the cilia (the small-like hairs inside of the lungs) will have recovered from the effects of cigarette smoke.

When you reach a whole year without having one puff of a cigarette, your risk of coronary heart disease will be cut in half.

From this point onwards, with every other successful milestone you hit, your risk of coronary heart disease will continue to decrease, thereby increasing your longevity.

Your chances of getting pancreatic cancer are the same as a non-smoker too.

Twenty years without lighting up will mean that your risk of dying from a smoking-related cause is now as low as someone who never smoked a cigarette in their life.

Health benefits of quitting

  • Improved chances of longevity
  • Reduced blood pressure
  • Improved circulation
  • Improved lung function
  • Able to breathe better
  • Improved sense of taste and smell
  • Reduced risk of numerous cancers
  • Reduced risk of cardiovascular disease.

Other benefits of quitting

  • Smell better
  • More money
  • Fresher breath
  • Improved self esteem
  • Whiter teeth
  • Better hearing
  • Better vision
  • Clearer, younger-looking skin.

You can now delete the last 15 minutes of your Google search history, here's how

Worried about what your last search says about you? Google is finally allowing anyone to delete their last 15 minutes of searches. So, you can remove any possibility of previous results showing up on the Google homepage when you start typing.
It’s worth noting this is different from your browser history. While your web browser, whether you’re using Google Chrome, Safari, Microsoft Edge, Firefox, will keep track of the websites and searches you’ve made to help you return to a page down the line, Google itself also keeps tabs on your searches. These are used to tailor advertisements to your tastes, suggest YouTube videos based on your interests, and surface previous search terms as you start typing.

It’s all very helpful… until you search for something you’d rather be forgotten.

Of course, Google has offered the ability to search without fear that your results will be used for any of the above before. Known as Incognito Mode, this is built into Google Chrome and stops any of your web activity being recorded by Google (although, it’s worth remembering that your internet supplier – BT, Sky, Virgin Media – still sees everything that you’re doing as do a number of on-screen adverts, Facebook login buttons dotted around the web, and more…)

But if you haven’t used Incognito Mode and want to erase the last quarter of an hour from the record, this latest feature should come in handy.

NHS app collects ‘HUGE amount of personal data’ for vaccine passports

Announced during its annual developer conference, known as Google IO, earlier this week, the Californian company explained that it will now include a quick shortcut to delete the last 15-minutes of queries using its search engine.

So, if you suddenly realise that you’re hunting for birthday presents without Incognito Mode enabled, you can head to the main Google.co.uk page, click your profile icon in the top right-hand corner, select Manage Your Google Account, and then click “Delete History” from the menu. Simples. Google says it has put this new feature front-and-centre because it believes it will be hugely popular with fans. That suggests this might’ve been something that forgetful Google users have been asking the company to implement for some time now.

Either way, it’s nice that you don’t need to be so precious about jumping into Incognito Mode every time you find yourself shopping for a gift, looking up a career move on a work computer, or, erm, well, come to think of it, we’re pretty sure those are the only two things that Incognito Mode is ever used for.

There is a catch… as mention above, the feature is limited to the last fifteen minutes. Beyond that, you’ll have to deal with the consequences of your recorded searches.

(Reuters) – Wall Street’s main indexes closed lower on Wednesday after minutes from an April Federal Reserve meeting showed participants agreed the U.S. economy remained far from the central bank’s goals, with some considering discussions on tapering its bond buying program.

The added to losses after the release of the minutes revealed a number of Fed policymakers thought that if the economy continued rapid progress, it would become appropriate “at some point” in upcoming meetings to begin discussing a tapering of the Fed’s monthly purchases of government bonds, a policy designed to keep long-term interest rates low.

“There continues to be a view and a perspective from the participants, as well as the Fed staff that these inflationary pressures that are beginning to become evident will remain transitory in their view and will likely recede as we transition into 2022,” said Bill Northey, senior investment director at U.S. Bank Wealth Management in Minneapolis.

Strong inflation readings and signs of a worker shortage in recent weeks have fueled fears and roiled stock markets despite reassurances from Fed officials that the rise in prices would be temporary.

All three main indexes hit their session lows in morning trade after opening sharply lower, then partially recovered before the release of the Fed minutes pressured them anew.

The fell 164.62 points, or 0.48%, to 33,896.04, the S&P 500 lost 12.15 points, or 0.29%, to 4,115.68 and the dropped 3.90 points, or 0.03%, to 13,299.74.

Volume on U.S. exchanges was 10.70 billion shares, compared with the 10.60 billion average for the full session over the last 20 trading days.

Contributing to a risk-off mood on Wednesday, and ether plunged in the wake of China’s move to ban financial and payment institutions from providing cryptocurrency services.

The two main digital currencies fell as much as 30% and 45%, respectively, but they significantly stemmed their losses in afternoon trading after two of their biggest backers — Tesla (NASDAQ:) Inc chief Elon Musk and Ark Invest’s chief executive officer Cathie Wood — reiterated their support for bitcoin.

Crypto-exchange operator Coinbase Global ,miners Riot Blockchain (NASDAQ:) and Marathon Digital Holdings saw their shares sharply decline on Wednesday.

Declining issues outnumbered advancing ones on the NYSE by a 2.15-to-1 ratio; on Nasdaq, a 1.71-to-1 ratio favored decliners.

The S&P 500 posted 3 new 52-week highs and no new lows; the Nasdaq Composite recorded 34 new highs and 49 new lows.

Therefore doesn`t .

Manchester City eye first Champions League final

Manchester City turned the first leg of their Champions League semifinal around to take a huge step towards the final, scoring twice through Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez to go in front in Paris before Idrissa Gueye saw red.

Paris dominated the first half at the Parc des Princes, faced with the challenge of reaching the final for a second consecutive season after beating holders Bayern and five-time winners Barcelona in the previous round, and went ahead after 15 minutes.

Angel di Maria – familiar with City from his season with Manchester United in 2013 – whipped a corner towards the near post, where captain Marquinhos flicked a header beyond Ederson to give his side a lead that they were well worthy of for the remainder of the half.

The runaway Premier League leaders were revitalized when they re-emerged, taking the lead when Player of the Match De Bruyne curled one of his characteristically evasive deliveries into the penalty area, beating the Paris backline and, finally, surprised goalkeeper Keylor Navas.

That gave City the momentum going in to the final 25 minutes of normal time, taking advantage when Mahrez measured a free-kick from a central position between two players in the PSG defensive wall and beyond Navas at his left-hand post this time.

PSG have now lost important home games to City, Marseille, United, Monaco, Lyon, Nantes, Lille and Bayern this season, and star striker Neymar has not scored in his last six games in the knockout stage in the Champions League, although they will remain optimistic ahead of the return leg in Manchester next week.

To compound their despair, midfielder Gueye was dismissed for a dire 77th-minute challenge on Ilkay Gundogan, threatening to badly damage the City playmaker’s ankle with a wincingly late attempt at a tackle.

“We started well in the first ten minutes and had some control but they are an unbelievable team with great quality up front,” De Bruyne told BT Sport afterwards.

“It was a shame the way we conceded. After 25 minutes we changed our press and it became better, and the second half was much, much better. In the first half we were too rushed, and that’s not the way we are set up as a team.

“In the second half we tried to find the spaces more patiently. The progression we made as a team was good.”

The usually-lethal Kylian Mbappe failed to register a single shot after starting a Champions League match for the first time in his career.

“I am satisfied with the performance,” said City boss Pep Guardiola, wary of the particular threat posed by Mbappe and strike partner Neymar.

“We still have 90 minutes to beat them and against a team like PSG anything can happen.

“For a lot of our players it was the first time in the semifinals so they wanted to do well. The last ten minutes of the first half was good, and the second half was excellent.

“We scored two goals away and that is so important, but we have a hard job to do in six days.”

English teams now look marginally more likely to make up the finalists after Chelsea drew 1-1 at Real Madrid in the other semifinal first leg on Tuesday.

California Man Dies After Officers Pin Him to Ground for 5 Minutes

Author: Will Wright
This post originally appeared on NYT > U.S. News

The officers eventually push Mr. Gonzalez to the ground facedown and handcuff him. “What are we going to do?” the first officer asks. “Just keep him pinned down?”

“It’s OK, Mario,” the officer later says. “We’re going to take care of you.”

The first officer asks for Mr. Gonzalez’s last name and his birthday and tells him to keep talking. He answers in whimpered bursts and later begins grunting. At one point, he seems to say, “Please don’t do it.”

After about four and a half minutes of body camera footage showing Mr. Gonzalez pinned to the ground, a third officer is seen on his legs. When one officer asks if they should roll him on his side, another replies, “I don’t want to lose what I got.”

“We have no weight on his chest, nothing,” the second officer observes, pointing to Mr. Gonzalez’s back. As the first officer tries to adjust his position, the second says: “No, no, no. No weight, no weight, no weight.”

Seconds later, the officers notice that Mr. Gonzalez has become unresponsive. They roll him onto his side and then push him onto his back and begin chest compressions after checking for a pulse.

After emergency medical workers respond, the first officer explains that they administered Narcan, which can reverse overdoses. “He went from combative to nonresponsive almost immediately,” he says.

Several experts testified during Mr. Chauvin’s trial that the prone position was dangerous because it could impair breathing and that officers should put people they are detaining onto their sides as quickly as possible.

The three officers put on leave were Eric McKinley, Cameron Leahy and James Fisher, a city spokeswoman said on Tuesday. When asked for more details about the death of Mr. Gonzalez, she pointed to the Police Department’s previous news releases about the encounter.

New Pokémon Snap's Latest Trailer Shows Off Six Minutes Of Gameplay Footage

Update (Fri 16th Apr, 2021 11:30 BST): This trailer has now been uploaded in English, so we’ve swapped out the Japanese version. Enjoy!

Original Article (Fri 9th Apr, 2021 11:45 BST): April is now well and truly underway, which means one very important thing: yes, we’re finally in the launch month of New Pokémon Snap!

The game launches three weeks from today, and The Pokémon Company has shared a brand new, six-minute video to its Japanese YouTube channel. It serves as a ‘guide’ to the game’s Lental Region, and while we imagine the majority of us don’t speak Japanese, you do get to see an awful lot of gameplay footage to make it worth your time. Make sure to give it a watch above.

On top of that, two Japanese TV commercials have been released. The first gives us a teasing look at none other than Lugia, a legendary Pokémon from the second generation of games. In direct contrast, the second shows us how players of a certain disposition can spend their time zooming in and grabbing a great shot of Machamp’s unsurprisingly perky buttocks.

Are you looking forward to checking out New Pokémon Snap on 30th April? If you haven’t already, make sure to check out our hands-on preview with the game to learn more.

Weight loss: Walking 30 minutes at a specific time of day can help you burn the most fat

Walking can be a great way to get the heart rate up and promote weight loss. Speaking in the podcast ‘Just One Thing with Michael Mosley’, health experts shared their tips.
The health experts discussed the benefits of going for a walk for weight loss.

They claimed getting steps in in the morning could be the best time to reap the benefits.

Dr Mosley said: “There are loads of benefits for going for a walk at any time of day or night, but getting out and about in the morning really could have some added benefits.

“It’s also a good idea to make your walk as brisk as possible because when you do that it increases the impact by about 50 percent.”


While walking in the morning, the expert suggested there are benefits of doing this before or after eating.

Marie stated: “The evidence is mixed. If you walk fasted… there’s a little bit of evidence to suggest it might be better for weight loss.

“For me, you’ve already come off of a night of fasting before breakfast and it’s probably better to put something into your system to get your going.”

Marie suggested going for a fasted walk could potentially speed up weight loss.

“On the day where I didn’t, you could absolutely see the fat in my blood.

“Whereas when I had been for a brisk walk, it turned on the muscles, if you like, and they started to draw the fat and the sugar out of my blood.

“Simply on that basis it seemed like quite a good idea to have a brisk walk after breakfast.”

Marie agreed, and added: “I think the message that comes out of that is any walking, whenever you do it, is good.”
