Gorillaz have returned to the public consciousness with a bang in the past couple weeks. After announcing their own Demon Dayz festival in the U.K. (set to feature all the artists included on their upcoming album Humanz), the Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett-masterminded animated group released four new top-notch tracks from the new album last week, complete with animated visuals. Then, after announcing their first North American show in years at Festival d’été de Québec in Quebec City this summer, the group sent shockwaves through social media when they were announced as a headliner for this summer’s Outside Lands alongside The Who and Metallica. Now, they have their own mixed reality app for fans to get a glimpse inside the weird and wonderful universe of the Gorillaz for the very first time.According to a press release, “the Gorillaz App will allow fans to immerse themselves in the world of Gorillaz and join Murdoc, 2D, Russel and Noodle at home in the Gorillaz House.”To celebrate the release of the new album, fans will be invited – via the app – to the Humanz House Party, an exclusive worldwide listening event which will allow fans to hear the new album in full for the first time. The Humanz House Party will be the largest ever geo specific listening experience bringing people together across 500 locations, from Tokyo to Santiago.Developed by Gorillaz and B-Reel with support from Deutsche Telekom, the fully immersive mixed-reality app is a unique blend of real world, AR, VR and 360 environments, using the technology in a narrative context for the very first time.Gorillaz will headline the recently announced, sold-out Demon Dayz Festival at Dreamland Margate on June 10th. Full details of dates scheduled for later in the year, will be announced soon.More dates to be announced?! Yes, thank you universe.Download the app on both Apple and Android mobile devices here.

Dailymail (UK) 27 Nov 2012A pensioner is pleading with the NHS to turn her from a woman back into a man, after realising the sex change operation she had 23 years ago was a huge mistake. RAF veteran Gary Norton, 75, underwent a full male to female gender reassignment – but says it left her trapped in the wrong body. She’s now ditched her wardrobe of women’s clothes to live as a man again and is on the waiting list for a mastectomy. The pensioner, who is legally and still physically a woman, says she is desperate to return to her birth sex before it is too late.Gary, who changed her name to Gillian after her wife and four children disowned her, says she knew the sex change was a mistake when she grew sick of doing her hair and make up and continued to be attracted to straight women. She says: ‘I’m a red-blooded man and always have been. I still can’t believe this happened to me. I should never have been given the op. I tried to make a success of it, what else could I do? ‘But I’ve been living a lie. The sex change was a huge mistake. ‘I was vulnerable and I was given poor advice which has ruined my life. I don’t want this to happen to anyone else.’…Gary’s horror story began when she sought help for depression from her GP after being made redundant. During the meeting she admitted to dressing in her wife’s clothes for a secret thrill. She says she now realizes this was as far as she ever wanted to go. But she claims her GP concluded she could have been depressed because she wanted to be a woman and advised her to start taking hormone pills.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2239120/Gary-Norton-75-woman-sex-change-operation-23-years-ago-wants-man-again.html
Scoop.co.nz 8 March 2017Family First Comment: “For nearly seven months, the Health Select Committee has been hearing stories from hundreds of Kiwis, and 3 out of 4 of them have been saying no to euthanasia,” says Dr. Smith. “But hardly anyone outside of the Committee is aware of what they’ve said.”Today marks the launch of the campaign 16,000 Voices – Kiwis say no to euthanasia. The campaign gives voice to a sampling of the 16,000 people who wrote in to the Health Select Committee expressing their opposition to euthanasia.“Most of the New Zealand public is unaware of just how overwhelming the opposition has been to the introduction of euthanasia legislation,” says Dr Jane Silloway Smith, Director of Every Life Research Unit, whose analysis of submissions made to the Committee forms the basis of the information provided in 16,000Voices.“For nearly seven months, the Health Select Committee has been hearing stories from hundreds of Kiwis, and 3 out of 4 of them have been saying no to euthanasia,” says Dr. Smith. “But hardly anyone outside of the Committee is aware of what they’ve said.”“If the Committee reports accurately on what they’ve been reading and hearing, we’re unlikely to see an endorsement for euthanasia legislation, which may come as a shock to many. That’s why 16,000 Voices is so important – to let us hear why Kiwis are saying no to euthanasia in their own words.”The 16,000 Voices campaign encompasses a website with videos and written submissions, alongside a Facebook page and You Tube channel.http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/PO1703/S00090/16000-voices-show-kiwis-say-no-to-euthanasia.htm

“I want to thank the coach and the club for the trust they give me. They did everything to keep me at Milan. “In the last six months, I have shown that age doesn’t matter. On vacation, I talked a lot with the club and saw my future in Milan. “I only think about football and helping the team to satisfy the fans.” Milan ended 2019-20 on an unbeaten run of 13 games and finished sixth in Serie A, securing a place in the qualifying rounds of the Europa League, where they face Shamrock Rovers on September 17. “Milan must continue how the season ended, we must work and believe, as we have done recently. “We must play with pride and confidence, remembering that when you put on the Milan shirt it’s a great privilege but at the same time a source of pressure. read also:Ibrahimovic: ‘Not here to be Milan mascot’ “The whole team did well and understood what it takes to get to the top. Now, we must work well from the first day.” Zlatan hopes to have the fans back at San Siro as soon as possible. “We have been good in the few last months, but with the fans we would have been even stronger. I hope they can return to San Siro soon.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Zlatan Ibrahimovic said he returned to Milan because he ‘feels at home’ with the Rossoneri but stressed he will work to achieve the targets set for his next chapter at San Siro. After having returned to Milan in January, the Swede made a great impact on the team and the club did everything they could to successfully renew his deal in the fashion capital. “I have always felt part of Milan, even when I played with other teams,” Zlatan told Milan TV. “They always treated me well from day one. “When I first arrived in Milan, I smiled. Something I have never done before in my job. I feel at home and I don’t feel like I have been away.” Zlatan was expected to pick No9 but had decided to wear No11 and says he wanted to wear the shirt he wore during his first stint with the club. “I chose No11 because the Milan fans know me with this number,” he added. “With No21, I didn’t feel like the Ibrahimovic of the first Milan, so I asked for this number to feel like I used to before.” Ibrahimovic wanted to help the Diavolo back to old heights. “I came here to bring Milan back to their level, where they deserve to be. I do everything to achieve the goals I set,” the 38-year-old said. “We have to work and sacrifice, but in the last six months we have shown we have what it takes to reach certain goals. “We must not forget, however, that we have not won anything. In my head, the goal is always to win something. This season we have to win.” The Swede returned to Milanello after having reached an agreement until June 2021 and thanked the club and the coach.

Sixty yards from the net and 45 seconds into sudden-death overtime, Allie Murray held Syracuse’s hopes in her stick. The goalkeeper had, as she’d done a half-dozen times throughout the game, come out aggressively to clear and push the Orange offense up the field.This time though, Murray walked deeper into the zone and a Florida defender jumped to her. She wheeled to look for an open teammate she’d never find.“We’re usually pretty good at (that play),” SU head coach Gary Gait said. “It’s a guaranteed clear every time pretty much. Today that wasn’t the case.”Florida’s Mollie Stevens smacked Murray’s stick. The ball popped free, Sammi Burgess scooped it up and was fouled after a 50-yard sprint toward the Syracuse goal.The Orange had two defenders 8 yards from the goal, but Murray was forced to stop behind the pack. When play began again, neither of those defenders was able to stop Burgess from making a simple pass to Stevens, who rifled a game-winner into an empty net to give No. 3 Florida (5-0) an 11-10 win over No. 2 SU (5-1) in the Carrier Dome on Tuesday afternoon.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThat one play symbolized Syracuse’s inability to hold onto both the ball, which it turned over 16 times, and the lead, which it lost three times throughout the contest. Murray’s third and final turnover was the last straw.“It seems like we kind of don’t value the ball in the first half,” Gait said. “Like, ‘Oh, no worries, we’ll just rally for the second half.’ We put ourselves in a tougher situation than taking care of the ball from the start.”In the first half, Syracuse committed a season-high 13 turnovers. Despite the sloppy play, the Orange found itself leading after 25 minutes by drawing free-position shots and working the ball around the 8-meter line. Four straight goals ended a Florida run and gave SU a 4-3 lead.Seconds later, UF’s Shayna Pirreca found a cutting Burgess across the middle. Burgess faked a shot, baiting Murray out of the goal, and wrapped a shot around the goalkeeper’s outstretched stick. Murray finished the game with more turnovers than saves (2).Florida had erased Syracuse’s lead in 21 seconds. And the Gators didn’t stop there, turning two more turnovers into goals in the last moments of the first half.“We had to get into our groove,” said SU attack Riley Donahue. “It just sucked that we didn’t get into it too early.”Syracuse got into that “groove” after halftime, going on a 5-1 run to take a 9-7 advantage that it held for nearly 12 minutes. But eventually it lost that, too, as SU assistant Regy Thorpe pleaded with the defense from the sideline.“Come on!” he yelled with the Orange clinging to a 9-8 lead. “Move! Move!”Syracuse defenders listened, but Florida’s Nicole Graziano spiked her stick into the turf as her goal once again brought the game level with 6:56 left.When Stevens gave UF a 10-9 lead two minutes later, all Gait could do was put the back of his hand over his mouth. Thorpe pulled his hat over his eyes then off his head. Michelle Tumolo, a former Florida assistant coach who now holds the same position at Syracuse, stood with her hands over her head while watching the replay on the video board.Syracuse’s leading goal-scorer Halle Majorana scored her 14th of the season with 2:46 to play, but it only tied the game.The Orange had already let its last lead slip away.“We just made too many mistakes,” Gait said. “… You make mistakes and you pay the price.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 1, 2016 at 5:16 pm Contact Sam: email@example.com | @Sam4TR
