ShareTweetShareShareEmail Recommended for you ShareTweetShareShareEmailCommentsAs sport which is in shadow of the bigger products like football or basketball, struggling to get that prefix “global” due clear fact that it is only statistic mistake on the market of North America, China or Australia, handball, the latest, faced with the term of “FAKE NEWS”, established in politics last year during American presidential election.You can guess about whom we are thinking about, and yes, you will be right if you link the whole story with the transfer of Andreas Wolff, which media in several countries called “the biggest ever in handball history”. How it happened that some “serious media” wrote about 3.000.000 transfer fee of the player who will be a free agent in the moment of contract signing and about 4.000.000 EUR for four years of playing at PGE Vive Kielce, where salaries go approx until 40.000 EUR (OMG, rumours, once again) per month? It is firstly question of logic, then journalist’s ethic, intention that handball gets a new dimension and not only “boring one – 40×20” in situation when it is normal in other sports, and on the fourth-place constantly lack open and wide information about salaries/money in our sport.The first two thing we will skip as logic and ethic is something that requires more than one article and certainly, we are not someone to give lessons…But, there is a strong need to point out that these things would not happen in situation of clear relationships and not half-black, but normal and open handball market.Why don’t we know the TOP 10 highest incomes in our sport? Why that has to be a secret in handball and it’s not in other sports? Because we are ashamed with a comparison to the others? Why we don’t have clear situation about market value of the players, their court and off-court potential. Teams, agents and players, in most cases, acting like in their private game which has to be followed by millions of people around, who can only watch 40x20m and don’t care about anything else linked with the stars they follow.Important thing, EHF and IHF still didn’t make serious steps to put regulations on the market of players’ agents and agencies. They don’t have proper licences for those people, who can act without specific education or experience. There is no visible official document on any websites where we can see their names and profiles. They are mostly people who are coming from the shadow, taking 5,7, 10% of the bruto-annual salary of the player, and getting back to the shadow, ready to cooperate with the media only in terms of self-promotion or trying to make a bigger price for their clients.But, it is a past time when media and fans wanted only to count goals and nice assists from players. Now, they want to know all. Handball factors want to stay “small players” in the global sports game where the money is. That is impossible. Only what we have are the rumours, so some L Equipe stats about players wages in all sports, gave as once a year, chance to see where handball practically is. That is the only chance for hundreds of thousands of fans all across Europe to get, not complete, answer on simple question – who is the highest paid handball player in the world? This is also the way to make handball more attractive to the market. If we know how much earn president of some country, why salary of handball players should stay secret? If Stoke City fan knows that for his second defensive Middle-fielder from Peru, if you can find a list of TOP 50 European basketball players…And, of course, it is like a wave. If you don’t have any info, you have to look for it. Speculations start in that specific moment when you crash in the wall of secret. Teams can be anger on media, but only in the case when they are ready to serve them right information in the right moment. In other cases, someone will research, someone will throw millions and billions of dollars, euros, everything, and most of media will just copy-paste in order to get their clicks…So, who is the most paid handball player – Nikola, Mikkel or Laszlo? Who is in TOP 10, Domagoj, Uros, Arpad, maybe Andreas?WRITTEN BY: Zika Bogdanovic SC Magdeburg extend deals with Bezjak and Kristjansson Meshkov Brest sign Vladimir Vranjes Related Items:handball salary, handball transfers Click to commentlast_img read more

Fearless Uber Driver Stops Mid-Trip to Scoop Up Injured Hawk and Save It From the Highway

first_img“I put on the emergency lights and I jumped out and grabbed the hawk,” Eldilemi told the New York Daily News. “My passenger was surprised. He was like ‘What are you doing?’ I said, ‘Look, I’m gonna drop you off first and then do something with the bird.’”RELATED: Watch Olympic Sprinter Run Onto Busy Highway So He Can Save Tortoise From Traffic“I tell it, ‘Look, I’m going to save you,’” he added. “The bird just looked at me, like, friendly.”Eldilemi then drove all the way to Brooklyn with the bird held firmly in one arm. True to his word, he dropped off his human passenger before flagging down a police officer and handing off the bird.The officer put the hawk into a cage and transported it to the Wild Bird Fund of New York City. The hawk, which had likely been hurt from flying into a car or skyscraper, was named Taxi after rescuers mistakenly thought that she was rescued by a cab driver.

Giro d’Italia: Cervelo’s Simon Gerrans Takes Stage 14, Menchov Still in Pink

first_imgThe Cervelo Test Team rider from Australia, Simon Gerrans, took the win on Stage 14’s grueling uphill climb.  Saturday’s stage was the first of four through the Apennine mountains.  Finishing time was 4:16:48.Danilo Di Luca finished in 11th at 1:04 behind Gerrans, but race leader Denis Menchov was hot on his heels in 13th and in the same time group, retaining a 34 second gap and the maglia rosa.  Levi Leipheimer came in 17th at 1:07 and remains in third place overall at 43 seconds back.To put this 172km stage into perspective, I offer this: Several of our reviewers and I are at the BURN 24 Hour Challenge this weekend, racing our little hearts out (hence the lack of posts Saturday and, likely, Sunday).  Currently, we’re floating around 8th place in the Men’s Open team category.  When it’s all said and done, I’ll likely ride a grand total of 56 miles, or about 90km.  It’s only 1am, I’ve only ridden 28 miles, and I can’t for the life of me imagine getting back on the bike to do this again on Monday.  I am happy to report that all of the gear we’re flogging this weekend for review is working out well, and the weather is much, much better than expected.  Hope you’re all having a great Memorial Day weekend!Photo from AP, and check out UniversalSports.com for live and recorded video coverage of the Giro.

Both men and women (wrongly) believe women wearing makeup are more interested in casual sex

first_imgPinterest Share A new study suggests that women’s makeup is perceived as a signal of greater interest in casual sex. But the research found evidence that this was actually a “false signal.”The study, which was published in Personality and Individual Differences, examined the relationship between women’s makeup use and sociosexuality.People with an unrestricted sociosexual orientation are more comfortable with casual sex with different partners. Those with a restricted sociosexual orientation, on the other hand, prefer to have sex with a partner in a long-term, serious relationship. Share on Twitter LinkedIncenter_img Share on Facebook Email In an initial study, 182 people viewed photographs of 69 young adult women of European descent with varying levels of makeup. The more makeup the women were wearing, the more they were perceived as being attractive and sexually unrestricted by both male and female participants.The researchers then surveyed the 69 women regarding their actual use of makeup and their sociosexual orientation. They found no association between the women’s sociosexual orientation and time spent on makeup or money spent on makeup. In other words, the women’s self-reported sociosexuality was unrelated to their makeup habits.“This indicates that makeup is perceived to be a signal of greater unrestricted sociosexuality in women. Our findings, however, also show that this association is not a valid cue of women’s sociosexuality, as we found no systematic connection between women’s cosmetic use and their actual sociosexuality,” the authors of the study explained.The researchers also found that men perceived women with more makeup as more attractive, which in turn was associated with them falsely perceiving the women as more unrestricted in their sociosexuality.“This finding suggests that there may be some sort of wishful thinking effect among men in which attractive women are falsely, but optimistically, perceived as more willing to engage in casual sex,” the researchers noted.“Our evidence suggests that makeup is perceived to signal sociosexuality but does not actually signal sociosexuality, likely because makeup makes the face more attractive, which is incorrectly associated with sociosexuality.”The study, “Evidence that makeup is a false signal of sociosexuality“, was authored by Carlota Batres, Richard Russell, Jeffry A. Simpson, Lorne Campbell, Alison M. Hansen, and Lee Cronk.last_img read more

Porsche Mourns Loss of Great Designer Ferdinand Alexander Porsche

first_imgSTUTTGART, Germany – Prof. Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, honorary president of the Porsche AG Supervisory Board and designer of the iconic Porsche 911, died on April 5 in Salzburg, Germany. He was 76.   Matthias Müller, president and CEO of Porsche AG, paid tribute to Ferdinand Alexander Porsche’s services to the sports car manufacturer: “We mourn the death of our partner, Ferdinand Alexander Porsche. As the creator of the Porsche 911, he established a design culture in our company that has shaped our sports cars to this very day. His philosophy of good design is a legacy to us that we will honor for all time.”   Ferdinand Alexander Porsche was born in Stuttgart on Dec. 11, 1935, the oldest son of Dorothea and Ferry Porsche. Even his childhood was shaped by cars. He spent much of his time in the engineering offices and development workshops of his grandfather, Ferdinand Porsche. In 1943, the family accompanied the Porsche company’s move to Austria, where he went to school in Zell am See. After returning to Stuttgart in 1950, he attended the private Waldorf School. After leaving school, he enrolled at the prestigious Ulm School of Design.   In 1958, F.A. Porsche, as he was known by his colleagues, joined the engineering office of what was then Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche KG. He soon proved his great talent for design by sculpting the first model of a successor to the 356 model line out of plastic. In 1962, he took over as head of the Porsche design studio, creating a worldwide furor one year later with the Porsche 901 (or 911). With the Porsche 911, F.A. Porsche created a sports car icon whose timeless and classical form survives to this very day in what is now the seventh 911 generation. However, in addition to passenger cars, F.A. Porsche also concerned himself with designing the sports cars of the 1960s. His best-known designs include the Type 804 Formula One racing car or the Porsche 904 Carrera GTS, now considered to be one of the most beautiful racing cars ever.   In the course of the conversion of Porsche KG into a joint-stock corporation in 1971/72, Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, along with all the other family members, stepped down from the company’s front-line business operations. In 1972, he founded the “Porsche Design Studio” in Stuttgart, the head office of which was relocated to Zell am See in Austria in 1974.   In the decades that followed, he designed numerous classic gentlemen’s accessories such as watches, spectacles and writing implements that achieved global recognition under the “Porsche Design” brand. In parallel, with his team, he designed a plethora of industrial products, household appliances and consumer durables for internationally renowned clients under the brand “Design by F.A. Porsche.” A strong and clear design concept typifies all product designs created in his design studio to date. The credo of his design work was: “Design must be functional and functionality has to be translated visually into aesthetics, without gags that have to be explained first.” “A coherently designed product requires no adornment; it should be enhanced by its form alone.” The design’s appearance should be readily comprehensible and not detract from the product and its function. His conviction was: “Good design should be honest.”   Ferdinand Alexander Porsche received numerous honors and awards both for his work as a designer as well as for individual designs. For example, in 1968, the “Comité Internationale de Promotion et de Prestige” honored him for the outstanding aesthetic design of the Porsche 911 while the Industrial Forum Design Hannover (iF) voted him “Prizewinner of the Year” in 1992. In 1999, the President of Austria bestowed on him the title of professor.   Ferdinand Alexander Porsche retained a close lifelong association with Porsche AG as a partner and member of the supervisory board. For example, even after stepping down from front-line business operations, he contributed to the design of Porsche’s sports cars over many decades and repeatedly steered the company in the right direction. This was especially the case for the difficult period Porsche experienced at the beginning of the 1990s. From 1990 to 1993, F.A. Porsche served as president of the company’s supervisory board, thus playing a major role in Porsche A.G’s economic turnaround. In 2005, he stepped down from his supervisory board role in favor of his son Oliver and assumed the mantle of Honorary President of the Supervisory Board.   Ferdinand Alexander Porsche will be buried in the family grave at Schüttgut in Zell am See, attended by his immediate family. An official funeral service will be held in Stuttgart at a later date.     AdvertisementClick Here to Read MoreAdvertisementlast_img read more
