The Big One

Posted in dnxjvxyy on January 6th, 2020

first_imgWHILE recent rumblings out of Chatsworth have Southern California residents speculating about when the “Big One” might strike, Peruvians got the haunting answer to that question Thursday morning. That’s when an 8.0-magnitude earthquake unleashed massive devastation, killing at least 500 people. Massive parts of the country now have no power, no clean water and little hope. This is the constant danger that comes with living in seismologically sensitive areas. We know that it’s not a matter of if, but when, we will experience such destruction, and a quake even more severe than the Northridge Earthquake of 1994. When that time comes, we will depend greatly on the kindness and charity of others. Food and money will pour in from around the country and the world to ease our plight. For now, thankfully, it’s our turn to be on the giving end of the help line. Peru needs our support, and we need to provide it. To contribute to Peruvian quake relief, call Operation USA at (800) 678-7255, or go to www.opusa.org. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Gareth Bale tells talkSPORT: I came to Real Madrid to win trophies

Posted in hawtgbjn on December 29th, 2019

first_imgGareth Bale has praised a ‘very professional performance’ by Real Madrid to book their place in the Champions League final. Zinedine Zidane’s side beat Manchester City 1-0 at the Bernabeu to set up a meeting with city rivals Atletico at the San Siro on May 28. Bale, who moved from Tottenham to the Spanish capital in 2013, played a key role in getting them closer to their 11th European title, as his shot deflected off Fernando past Joe Hart. The Welsh star will play in his second Champions League final for the club in under three years – he scored against Atletico in the 2014 final. Bale told talkSPORT: “It’s massively important. “Whoever got the goal tonight, whatever it was – the most important thing is we got to the final.“It was a very professional performance, we kept it tight at the back and did well to get the goal to take us to the final.“Obviously we needed a bit of luck with the goal, but I felt like we controlled both games. Maybe they lacked a bit of ambition going forward but that’s down to us. We kept it tight and limited their chances and ultimately got the goal.”On the final against Diego Simeone’s side, who beat Bayern Munich in the other semi, Bale added: “We know it’s going to be another difficult game,  it always is against them.“They make it very difficult to play against but it’s one we’re looking forward to – hopefully another trophy.  We’re looking forward to it.“It’s the main reason I came to Real Madrid – to win Champions League trophies. We’ve obviously won the most in the history of the tournament.“To have another chance to win another trophy is amazing for us and hopefully we can take that opportunity.”Gareth Bale was talking to talkSPORT after the Champions League win over Manchester City, listen in full above.last_img read more
