Morata to join Altetico in permanent deal

Alvaro Morata to join Atletico Madrid in permanent move from Chelsea

Alvaro Morata will join Atletico Madrid on a permanent deal from Chelsea at the end of his current loan spell with the Spanish club.
The striker will remain on loan at the Wanda Metropolitano for the 2019-20 season before signing permanently on July 1, 2020.
Morata scored six goals in 17 games last season while on loan in the Spanish capital and Atletico have now agreed a permanent deal for the former Real Madrid striker.
Morata struggled to adapt to life in the Premier League after joining Chelsea in 2017 and the Spain international leaves Stamford Bridge having scored 24 goals in 72 appearances for the Blues.
"We would like to thank Alvaro for his contribution and wish him the best of luck for the future," read a statement on Chelsea's website.

Konami Says Unexpected PS Plus Change Was Sony's Decision

Konami Says Unexpected PS Plus Change Was Sony's Decision

When the PS Plus games lineup for July 2019 was announced, PES 2019 was listed as one of the free PS4 games for the month. However, this was later changed, with Detroit: Become Human replacing the soccer game at the last minute. Now, Konami has responded to questions about the news by stating it was Sony's decision.
In a short statement, a Konami spokesperson told GameSpot: "This decision was made by Sony and so please make an inquiry to Sony."
In its own statement, Sony admitted it had taken the decision itself but declined to elaborate: "We have decided to make a change to the PS Plus games lineup this month, and will be offering Detroit: Become Human Digital Deluxe Edition instead of PES 2019. This was a decision we decided to make as a company, and we apologize for any inconvenience."
European PES brand manager Lennart Bobzien, meanwhile, told GameSpot on the day of the change that it was not planned and had taken Konami by surprise: "I cannot really tell you what happened because I just found out today, in the morning when I opened my laptop. I can't really explain."
PES 2019's successor is on the way later this year. It's officially titled eFootball: PES 2020--see why PES has changed its name here--and will include Manchester United as a licensed team. It won't, however, feature any women's teams.
PES 2020 launches for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on September 10. A demo version, which includes online and offline match types as well as the game's edit mode, will launch on July 30. Stay tuned to GameSpot for a full PES 2020 gameplay preview.

Facebook, Instagram adn WhatsApp photo glitch fixed

Facebook, Instagram adn WhatsApp photo glitch fixed

Facebook says glitches affecting its platforms have now been resolved.
Users across the world had been unable to upload or view photos, videos and other files.
The problems had affected its Facebook, Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp apps.
"The issue has... been resolved and we should be back at 100% for everyone," it tweeted. It added that an unspecified issue had been accidentally "triggered" during "routine maintenance".
Facebook has more than 2.3 billion monthly active users and Instagram has one billion.
In some cases, users were shown grey boxes annotated with text explaining what the firm's image analysis software had suggested to be the contents of the original photos.
Rival platform Twitter also had issues, with some users not able to send direct messages or receive notifications for a time.
The company apologised for the inconvenience, tweeting at about 23:00 BST: "We're almost at 100% resolved. There may be some residual effects for a small group of people, but overall your DMs should be working properly now. We appreciate your patience!"
In March, Facebook and Instagram suffered their longest period of disruption ever. Problems also struck both apps as well as WhatsApp in April.
The latest problems followed earlier disruption on Tuesday when Cloudflare - a company that provides internet security to website operators - suffered a fault of its own that caused thousands of websites to display "502 errors" when visited. The US firm has since published a blog blaming a flawed software deployment.
"Our testing processes were insufficient in this case and we are reviewing and making changes to our testing and deployment process to avoid incidents like this in the future," it said.

Jaguar announces electric car investment in UK

Jaguar Land Rover announces electric car investment

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) is investing hundreds of millions of pounds to build a range of electric vehicles at its Castle Bromwich plant in Birmingham.
Initially the plant will produce an electric version of the Jaguar XJ.
JLR says the move will help secure the jobs of 2,700 workers at the plant.
The news follows January's announcement, when the firm said it would cut 4,500 jobs, with the majority coming from the UK. That followed 1,500 jobs lost in 2018.
JLR has not announced when it will launch the battery version of the XJ, but it will replace the petrol and diesel versions which have been made since 1968.
The company's chief executive, Professor Ralph Speth, called on the government to put more effort into providing charging points for electric cars.
"The current charging infrastructure is not really sufficient to cover the country, nor the hotspots of the cities," he said in an interview with the BBC.
"The government has to govern the process," he added.
  • Electric cars 'will not solve transport problem'
  • 'Grave concern' as sales of low emission cars fall
  • Why most people won't buy an electric car

'Confusing policies'

JLR's announcement comes a day after a report showed that in June sales of low emission cars had fallen for the first time in more than two years.
The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders said efforts to sell such cars were being undermined by confusing policies and "premature" removal of subsidies.

In response, the government said its focus on zero emission models had been a success, with registrations of battery electric vehicles up over 60% this year compared with the same period in 2018.
According to another report, even if the nation switches to electric vehicles, car use will still need to be curbed.
The Centre for Research into Energy Demand Solutions (CREDS) warned that electrifying cars will not address traffic jams, urban sprawl and wasted space for parking.
The investment decision by JLR appears to contradict previous warnings by the firm that investment in the UK would be threatened by Brexit, and in particular a no-deal scenario.
However, industry experts say that JLR could not wait to see the outcome of the Brexit, as it needed to update its range of vehicles.
"Given where it is in its product lifecycle it [JLR] has to make this decision. The capacity is at Castle Bromwich and there's research and development nearby as well, so they've basically run out of time on this decision," David Bailey, a professor of business economics at Birmingham Business School, told the BBC's Today programme.
  • Car investment slumps on Brexit 'red alert'
  • Jaguar Land Rover confirms 4,500 job cuts
He added that without the new investment the Castle Bromwich plant would "effectively be dead".
The plant also produces the Jaguar XF, XE and F-Type.
Business Secretary Greg Clark said: "Today's announcement is a vote of confidence in the UK automotive industry - protecting thousands of skilled jobs.
"It reflects our determination for the UK to be at the forefront of the development and manufacturing of the next generation of electric vehicles."
Investment in the UK car industry fell 47% last year from 2017 and the country is attracting a tiny fraction of the global investment in electric cars.
VW alone is investing £70bn in Europe, the US and China.
A no-deal Brexit would see new tariffs imposed on components and parts moving between the EU and the UK.
Vauxhall's parent company said that without a deal it would not make the next generation Astra at Ellesmere Port.

'Big Brother' Unveils Shocking New Twist at First Eviction Ceremony

‘Big Brother’ Hosts First Eviction Ceremony, Unveils Brand New Twist

At the top of the first live Big Brother episode, Julie Chen revealed she’d be uncovering an entirely new twist and that the evicted houseguest wouldn’t be going home. But we’ll get into that later. As Julie would say, but first …
Christie did everything she could to avoid getting blood on her hands. She didn’t know how the house was going to vote, so she told both Ovi and Kathryn that they were pawns. Regardless of what Christie’s plan was, Kathryn’s paranoid nature was quite the red flag — so much so that people were getting extremely annoyed with her. She asked everyone, repeatedly: “Are you bitches conspiring against me?” Even Michie, who she was in a “showmance” with, was rubbed the wrong way by her methods.
When it came time to vote, the entire house chose to send Ovi packing … except he wasn’t. “Camp Comeback” was officially open, a brand new twist which allowed the the evicted houseguest to continue living in the house as part of the social game. They would not compete in challenges, participate in ceremonies or vote, but one of the first four part of the camp would eventually earn their way back in the house.
The members of the camp would be sleeping in a not-so-nice separate room. One more thing: It wasn’t just Ovi enrolled in camp. David, who was eliminated after the first comp, returned, as well. Together, Ovi and David were able to listen to the HOH competition.
The HOH was July Fourth themed — after watching a fireworks display, the houseguests had to answer questions about what they had just seen. Jessica and Jack were the last two standing, but ultimately, Jack crowned the new HoH.

Celine Dion Wore the Blue Diamond Necklace From 'Titanic'in Paris

Celine Dion Wore the Blue Diamond Necklace From ‘Titanic’ to Paris Fashion Week and We’re Obsessed

When it comes to fashion, the heart does indeed go on — Celine Dion confirmed that fact by wearing the blue diamond Titanic necklace as part of an outfit she wore in Paris.
On Wednesday, July 3, the music legend was spotted during the city’s Haute Couture Fashion Week wearing the eye-catching accessory. This comes just a couple of weeks after the piece was spotted on a runway in the same city.
For those who might not remember, this stunner is called the Holy Heart of the Ocean and is from the 1997 blockbuster hit. In the movie, it’s given to Kate Winslet’s character Rose by her fiancé Cal, played by Billy Zane. After singing the Academy Award-winning song “My Heart Will Go On” for the film, the Canadian native then wore the dazzling costume piece to the 1998 Oscars. Now she’s proving it’s a current-day fashion must-have.
On Wednesday, she paired the chunky charm with a navy nylon sport miniskirt, a gray blazer and a t-shirt that reads “I love Paris” with a heart symbol in the place of love. But the best part of the look is underneath Paris where it says Hilton in signature-style writing, a shoutout to reality star Paris Hilton.
As much as we love this fun combo, as it so happens Dion wasn’t necessarily the one to come up with this diamond necklace and tee pairing. At the Vetements Menswear Spring-Summer 2020 show on June 20, a model walked the runway sporting this playful shirt and a replicated version of the necklace.
We don’t know if Dion’s diamond from Wednesday is a replica or the real deal, but either way the Internet is obsessed.
“Omg it happened…” Instagram account Diet Prada posted to its feed on Wednesday afternoon with a close-up of Dion’s Paris Fashion Week look.
As much as we love it, this is far from the only statement ensemble the “Because You Loved Me” singer has worn in Paris over the past week. In fact, she’s rocked some of her boldest looks yet! Click here to see some of our favorites.
