  • Ronaldo gives agent a Greek island for a wedding present

    Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t bother leafing through the Myer catalogue when he wanted to buy a wedding present for his agent Jorge Mendes. Instead, the Real Madrid star – who is best man at his long-time friend and confidant’s marriage – decided to stepover the pyrex dishes, mug trees, fondue sets and towel (not Gareth) bales, and splash out a bit more than most of the 400 guests who are expected to attend. Greece has decided to sell off some of its islands in a bid to help clear up its crippling financial problems and according to Portuguese publication Move Noticias, Ronaldo splashed out anything from $4.5m to $75m for the non-disclosed land.

This could be the convincing evidence that MH370 went down in the Indian Ocean," Malaysia's Deputy Transport Minister Abdul Aziz Kaprawi said.

Most people don’t discuss miscarriages because you worry your problems will distance you or reflect upon you — as if you’re defective or did something to cause this. “Miscarriage happens at a time when women are already emotionally vulnerable as a result of the hormonal shifts taking place within the body during pregnancy,” she explains.
