Soccer-Real hail Ronaldo after he beats Di Stefano derby record
Yahoo News - 3 months
By Richard Martin BARCELONA, Nov 19 (Reuters) - Cristiano Ronaldo's hat-trick against Atletico Madrid ended all doubts over who should win the 2016 Ballon d'Or, said Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane after the Portuguese entered derby folklore on Saturday. Ronaldo's record-breaking treble in a 3-0 win took him to 18 goals in the derby fixture, one more than the late Real great Alfredo Di Stefano, and helped his team open a four-point gap at the top of La Liga over nearest challengers Barcelona. "I've never had doubts that Cristiano is the best and tonight closes the debate," Zidane told reporters when asked if the performance had edged the 31-year-old closer to a fourth Ballon d'Or, the World Player of the Year award.

Messi played like a "child in playground", says Luis Enrique
Yahoo News - 4 months
By Richard Martin BARCELONA (Reuters) - Lionel Messi was like a "child playing in the playground" as he scored a hat-trick to inspire Barcelona's 4-0 thrashing of Manchester City in the Champions League on Wednesday, his coach Luis Enrique said. Making his first start in a month after recovering from a groin injury, Messi set the tone for another virtuoso performance with a storming run through the middle of City’s half before calmly dribbling past Claudio Bravo to score. The floodgates opened once former Barca goalkeeper Bravo was sent off for handling outside the area and Messi toyed with City’s defence to smash the ball past compatriot Willy Caballero.

Cycling: Drucker edges to stage victory, Quintana keeps gap with Froome
Yahoo News - 6 months
By Richard Martin BARCELONA (Reuters) - Jean-Pierre Drucker of Luxembourg sprinted his way to victory in stage 16 of the Tour of Spain with a perfectly timed finish, overtaking Daniele Bennati and Gianni Meersman in the final stretch of the 156.4 km flat stage from Alcaniz to Peniscola. There was no change at the top in the general classification, with Nairo Quintana maintaining his 3:37 lead over Tour de France champion Chris Froome by finishing with the Briton. Froome endured a dismal stage the day before, finishing two minutes 40 seconds behind winner Gianluca Brambilla and two minutes 37 seconds down on Quintana, allowing the Colombian to tighten his grip on the red jersey.

Soccer-Costa hits out at media as Spain goal drought continues
Yahoo News - 6 months
By Richard Martin BARCELONA, Sept 2 (Reuters) - Striker Diego Costa has said he is unfairly criticised by the Spanish media and feels it happens because he is not Spanish by birth and does not play for Real Madrid or Barcelona. An injury to Alvaro Morata saw Costa come off the bench in the first half of Spain's 2-0 win away at Belgium in an international friendly on Thursday, and shortly after coming on he provided the lay off for David Silva's opening goal. Costa has scored just one goal in 11 appearances for Spain since switching nationalities from his native Brazil in 2014, but defended his performance against Belgium.

Yahoo News - 6 months
By Richard Martin BARCELONA (Reuters) - Nairo Quintana retook the red jersey in the Tour of Spain after winning stage 10 to take a commanding lead in the general classification, while Chris Froome recovered from a poor start to the final climb to claim third in the stage and overall.

Soccer-PREVIEW: Ronaldo fit and ready to fire Real to more European glory
Yahoo News - 9 months
By Richard Martin BARCELONA, May 25 (Reuters) - Cristiano Ronaldo says he will be "100 percent" in Saturday's Champions League final as he attempts to fire Real Madrid to a record-extending 11th European Cup and further torment their city rivals, Atletico. Although Ronaldo scored the final goal in Real's 4-1 extra-time win over Atletico in the 2014 final in Lisbon, he has admitted he was far from at his best due to a hamstring problem and is determined to put in a better performance at Milan's San Siro on Saturday.

John Dear: "No More Hurting People!"
The Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Last week marked a typical turn in our world of violence -- dozens killed in explosions in Iraq, U.S. drone attacks in Afghanistan, the ongoing U.S.-backed occupation of Palestine, the forced-feeding of U.S. prisoners at Guantanamo, our president's daily perusal of his assassination list, millions of children starving to death around the world, ongoing U.S. preparations for nuclear war, the continued exploitation of the earth and its creatures, inner city shootings, fifteen dead from a fiery factory explosion in Texas -- and the Boston marathon bombings. I was in Ontario, Canada last week speaking about nonviolence and unable to follow the news from Boston. But I was stopped short by the heart-breaking photo of eight year old bombing victim Martin Richard from Dorchester, who was killed while standing with his family at the finish line last Monday. In the photo, Martin smiles at the camera holding his handmade poster with two red hearts and a peace sign. It reads: ...

WATCH: GMO Prop Debate Heats Up
Huffington Post - over 4 years
HuffPost LA's Kathleen Miles participated in a debate on HuffPost Live about California's hotly contested Prop 37, which would require that companies label all food made with genetically-modified ingredients. In late September, 61 percent of polled Californians supported Prop 37. But just a month later, that opinion flipped upside down, and only 39 percent were in support of the proposition, with 51 percent in opposition of it. And that tight contest was reflected in HuffPost Live's segment Tuesday, which generated over 500 comments in 30 minutes. Prop 37 has received significant national attention and money because of the precedent it could set for the country. Food, biotech and chemical companies have spent over $45 million on the No on 37 campaign, and 93% of that money has come from out of state. Natural food companies and other supporters have spent over $8 million on the Yes on 37 campaign, most of it also coming from out of state. The other guests in the Huf ...

Dartford make struggling Alfreton Town pay for defensive errors
Chad - over 4 years
Alfreton Town’s long trip to Kent left everyone disappointed, with a facile performance littered with defensive errors. Even with Adam Quinn partnering Darren Kempson at the heart of the Red’s defence, and the return of popular keeper Jon Stewart on loan from Burnley, Alfreton were unable to stem the tide as Dartford swept them aside with a five- goal salvo. Harry Crawford led the way for the Darts with a hat trick that began in the 11th minute after Kempson’s slip allowed him free access down the left to beat Stewart at his near post. His second goal came three minutes after the interval when he was left with enough time and space to loop a header over Stewart from a Ryan Hayes cross. Crawford completed his treble eight minutes from time despite a point-blank save by Stewart from his initial shot after Kempson failed to clear. Other goals for Dartford were scored by Elliot Bradbrook in first half added time with a simple header from a Hayes corner, while eight minutes earlier ...

Ga. Catholic parish to produce inspirational movie
CNA Catholic News Agency - over 4 years
Atlanta, Ga., Jun 8, 2012 / 04:16 am (CNA).- The Atlanta-area St. Catherine of Siena Church is producing a movie called “Five Blocks Away” to tell the story of a young man focused on his career and his social life when new experiences force him to search for “what really matters in life.” Kevis Antonio, the movie’s writer, described “Five Blocks Away” in an introduction on YouTube. He predicted that it will have “an incredible power to positively impact an immeasurable number of people in this country.” Executive producer Richard Martin said the movie is about a young man who is more concerned about worldly status. The man recognizes that he is “making mistakes” and is “living in that worldly life of greed and power and wanting more.” “But he eventually learns through compassion, through understanding of another, of a woman he falls in love with.” Martin said the moviemakers want “Five Blocks Away” to be “something that Christians around the world will rally around and s ...

Review: A dissatisfying 'Closeness of the Horizon' at the Odyssey
LATimes - over 4 years
“ The Closeness of the Horizon,” a guest production at the Odyssey, transpires primarily in the years 1969 and 1995. The play was supposedly inspired by playwright Richard Martin Hirsch's own 1969 road trip with a couple of close pals. When one of his friends, whom Hirsch hadn't seen in years, died prematurely, Hirsch began to question the nature of friendship and how people who seem almost mystically linked in temperament can ultimately drift apart.
