Neymar wants to leave PSG and play with Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid – Marca

Neymar to Real Madrid



Last summer, the football world was shocked by Neymar’s record breaking transfer fee of €222 million when he moved from Barcelona to PSG.


The Brazilian forward is one of football’s biggest names and has been absolutely sensational in Ligue 1 this season.


Despite being in Paris for less than a year, it is rumoured that Neymar already wants to leave the French Champions.


Marca have reported that Neymar wants to make the move and is unhappy at PSG.


Neymar fell out with PSG’s star striker Edison Cavani early in the season and despite the pair making up, it is clear that Neymar and PSG aren’t the best fit.



Could it happen?



Back in February, after PSG played Real Madrid in the Champions League, Marcelo stated:

“Neymar will play for Real Madrid”.


Marcelo has been at Real Madrid since 2007 and has played with Neymar for the Brazilian national team since 2010.


Many people believed that Neymar left Barcelona as he felt over-shadowed by Lionel Messi but Marca believe that he would have no problem in playing with Cristiano Ronaldo.


Ronaldo is having yet another astonishing season but he won’t be around forever; Neymar could be the next great Galactico.



Will it happen?



Not many players have played for both Barcelona and Real Madrid but the ones that have done have been some of the greatest players of all time.


Luis Figo, Ronaldo and Samuel Eto'o have all played for both El Clasico clubs and Neymar could be the next.


It is extremely difficult for players to move to their formal rivals and Neymar would be on the end of a lot of abuse if he did move to the Bernabeu.


Despite not needing him, Barcelona look to have signed Antoine Griezmann.


Real Madrid may be in yet another Champions League final but they are desperate to win La Liga again.


Neymar could be the difference and as we all know, money is no issue for Real Madrid.

Important Symptoms of Asperger's Syndrome

Asperger’s syndrome is a part of ASD or autism spectrum disorder. Medical experts say that it is a mild form of autism that doesn’t usually manifest with extreme mental problems or disabilities. A person suffering from Asperger’s syndrome will have some clear outward characteristics such as being clumsy, lack of non-verbal communication and poor social skills. The exact causes of this syndrome are not known, but experts believe that genes or exposure to certain chemicals may cause this disorder. There are some important symptoms that can tell you if your child, family member or someone else has Asperger’s Syndrome, which are highlighted below:

Failure to develop friendships

Cultivating friendships is often difficult amongst children who have Asperger’s syndrome. Their lack of social skills makes it difficult for them to connect with others. They may find it difficult to participate in group activities or talk to other children. Some children suffering from the syndrome may want to share a deep connection with others, but find it difficult. Yet, there are also cases where children with Asperger’s prefer to be on their own and have no desire to make friends.

Selective mutism

Another symptom that may be displayed by young children with Asperger’s is selective mutism. This means that they will only speak in the presence of those they are comfortable with and will not communicate with strangers. This usually happens when young children are at school or in a public place.

Unable to empathize

Empathizing with others is difficult for sufferers of Asperger’s syndrome. As they grow older, they will learn the accepted social response that should be made when interacting with others. This means that they will react the right way and make the right response, but will not truly understand why the person is upset. This can be a problem in childhood because the kids may be harsh with others or play too roughly and not understand why it is wrong.

Unable to make eye contact

If you take the Asperger’s test for kids, one symptom that’s often asked about is the child’s ability to make eye contact. Some people who suffer from this disorder are unable to make eye contact altogether whereas others find it difficult to hold eye contact. It is believed by some that this stems due to a lack of confidence.

Socially awkward

It is completely wrong to assume that those with Asperger’s syndrome are not passionate. Some of them become socially active and may end up forming very close friendships. There are also those who may surround themselves with peers, have lots of acquaintances, but don’t have any deep friendships. This is because they may be socially awkward.

Narrowed interests

One common symptom of children with Asperger’s is that they may not do well in school, but this doesn’t mean that they don’t have other interests. They are focused on specific activities such as playing video games, drawing or making models. These activities are often a source of comfort for them.

Knowing these important symptoms of Asperger’s syndrome can be helpful in identifying this disorder

Nicole Norton wandered in just before 7 a.m. I was still in bed, but my buddy Jonathan Lantz was awake and there to greet her. She was early. On a summer day, we would have been expecting her. But on this windy spring Monday, she caught us by surprise. Still tucked beneath the covers in my loft and only half awake, I listened to her explain her early arrival. “There is a red-flag warning starting at 10 a.m. because of the wind and my husband wants me done hiking before that,” she explained.


About 90 minutes later, Tim walked in. At 8:30 a.m., he too seemed early. By this point, I was sitting on the couch by the fire. We talked about the howling wind. “It seems to be staying mostly in the trees,” he said. A few minutes later (or was it earlier?), he expressed the difficulty of things. “Dang, dang, dang, it just never get’s any easier.”


Before he even left, another one popped through the door. Also a familiar face, Tina Mascarenas had taken the long way up the Heizer Trail and was about eight miles deep into her run. She spoke of the difficulty of the steep climb on Heizer, the challenge of the downed logs, and her need to train the steeps for her upcoming race in Greece. We chatted pretty casually. We talked about studying for the GRE, applying to medical schools, and most importantly, brunch. I also told her she should hit the steeps on Cameron Cone.


Two days prior, I too had had my battles with the wind and steeps as I did an interval workout to the summit of Pikes Peak. I told my buddies Brandon Stapanowich and Alex Nichols that the wind was so cold near the top that I skipped all the precious rest segments and just kept the hammer down. Fortunately, I was sheltered from most of the wind as I dropped down the east face. Given the recent snow, the trail conditions were anything but smooth. Footprints from previous passersby paved the way for a hop-scotch-type technique. As I made my way from one footprint to the next across the steep, choppy terrain, I longed for the chill in my body to subside. I also wanted my knee to quit bugging me. The knee has been nagging me for several weeks. Though it has improved greatly over that time, and continues to do so, it is still a nuisance. I longed for it to stop altogether and let me run free.


The following day, I planned to meet up with some friends going for an ascent of Cameron Cone, an incredibly steep mountain that towers high above the tiny town of Manitou Springs, Colorado. Given that I live 6.5 miles into the backcountry, and my friends were starting from town, I decided to go in the back way from Dark Canyon and find them along the way.


Despite having done a hard workout the day before, my legs felt pretty good as I picked my way through Dark Canyon. Gaining the saddle between Palsgrove and the Cone, I hung a right on the standard route and made the final push to the summit. No sign of my friends at the top, I turned back around and followed the trail back toward town. I figured this would be a good way to find them, that they must still be on their way up, and I would eventually bump into them. Thirty minutes later they were nowhere in sight. Thinking that I should have run into them by now, I stopped and pulled out my phone to text them. “Are you guys on the Cone Trail?” I asked. “On the summit now. Heading to Dark Canyon,” was the reply I got back from my buddy Brandon. “Okay. I’ll head that way,” is what I texted back.


Putting my phone away and heading back up the trail, I pondered if I should try to take a shortcut and whether or not I’d ever catch them. All they had to do was scramble through some boulders and follow the trail to the saddle that I had been on earlier that morning. A quick left there and they would be dropping into Dark Canyon. In the meantime, I had to regain much of the elevation I had just lost just to reach the saddle and drop back into the canyon that I had passed through earlier that morning. Really wanting to catch them, I found a pace that some might call pressing, but not pushing, and continued my search. Once at the saddle I pulled out my phone, texted an update to Brandon, and dropped into the canyon. Traversing the scree field that drops steeply into the canyon, I noted there didn’t seem to be much in the way of fresh tracks. I continued on anyhow and after a short bit I decided to let out a holler. Much to my delight, the call was returned and in about 20 seconds my friends came into view.


From there, we made the steep climb up Mary’s Mountain, hung out on the summit for a bit, and headed north toward Rocky Top. Somewhere between Mary’s and Rocky Top, we started discussing injuries and that trying road to recovery that runners struggle with so much. We spoke of the tendency to analyze and compare everything, always thinking about how the body is feeling, what it was able to do (or not do), and how that stacks up against the days, weeks, and months before.


In one way, it can be useful. Doing a status check from one day to the next can help a person to recognize that they actually are making progress. Sure, the injury may still be present, but the fact that today was better than yesterday and this weekend’s run was far ahead of last weekend’s serves as a form of encouragement. And yet, at the same time, as one in our group expressed that day, it’s exhausting. And I couldn’t agree more. Having an injury, even a small one that doesn’t completely halt the training process, can be very draining. Doubt, worry, and fear seem a constant threat as the mind tries to analyze every little niggle.


It’s like that wind that had Nicole hiking bright and early or the steep climb and downed logs that Tina faced. All of those things can seem very relentless. Sometimes they make us want to turn back, or worse yet, stay home altogether. At times, such decisions may be a good idea, but many times, I believe what it takes is to stay the course. That being said, the course does not have to be stayed alone. The wind may blow, but as Tim expressed, it stays mostly in the trees. It can gust at 60 miles per hour far above the trees atop Pikes Peak, but dip down low and those towering giants provide a blanket of protection.


It makes me think of my group of friends that day. Were we all 100 percent healthy during that run? No way! I was dealing with knee niggles, Hillary Allen was working her way back from a brush with death last summer in Norway, and Chica the dog was just trying not to get sprayed by her third skunk of the year. But, amidst the group there was strength. Sure, there were doubts, worries, and fears present, but there were people (and dogs) to share them with.


We were our own grove of trees that day, shielding each other from the wind (and skunks). This doesn’t mean that none of the wind got through. The struggles were still there, but we had supporters, encouragers, and empathizers to hold us up. Like a grove of aspen trees with their roots interconnected, we were stronger together.


And yet, as important as it is to have an immediate grove of trees within which you can take shelter, it is also important to remember that your little grove is part of a much bigger forest. Other groves may have different styles. They may be older, younger, wilder, or more reserved, but that doesn’t mean that they should be excluded or shut out. By the end of the run that day, we found ourselves eating ice cream at the legendary Matt Carpenter’s ice-cream shop. (Okay, technically it’s a custard shop, but ice cream sounds better in my head and we always call it Matt’s ice-cream shop anyhow.) You might say that Matt is the mightiest and wisest oak tree in town, but there he was, casually chatting with us as we ate our frozen treats. Our grove was young. He had many rings of wisdom. And yet we were of the same forest.


So no matter where you’re from, who you are, or what you have or have not done, whether you’re a Coconino Cowboy, a Cappuccino Cowboy, a Rocky Mountain Runner, a Team Coloradan, a Mount Tam shredder, an San Francisco Running Company group runner, a Mountain Peak Fitness(er), an F&M Track Club(er), a Central Mass Strider, a New York Road Runner, a Genesee Valley Harrier, an Achilles International Athlete, or anything, or nothing else, I hope you feel welcomed, accepted, supported, and protected in the forest of running and life.

A season of exaggerations for Newcastle United (+win a Toon shirt)

Going on recent history, it is of course understandable to expect the worst at St James’ Park, but whilst fears of another potential relegation for the Toon were somewhat exaggerated earlier in the season, three wins on the spin has taken things in the opposite direction, with the hyperbole starting to go into overdrive.

Oh no! I got thrown in jail for trespassing!


somali cat at pet store in shopping cart


Ha-ha, just kidding! I’m with my human at the pet store, shopping for cat food and a couple of other necessary things.


somali cat looking at cat food in pet store aisle


Shopping for food for Binga is always a little tough. She likes one particular food, but my human occasionally tries something new, just in case the formula of her regular food gets changed or they stop making it.


somali cat upset that pretty dress is not in her size


We saw a super-pretty dress, but there wasn’t one in my size! I was kind of upset about that.


somali cat on leash, walking down aisle in pet store


I did get to wander around on my leash and visit with people. That’s something I always enjoy doing!


somali cat in cat toy section of pet store


We also stopped by the cat toys, which is one of my other favorite things to do.


somali cat checking out cat toy


Believe it or not, I rejected this cat toy! My human sniffed it and she understood why - there was no catnip in it.


somali cat on cash register counter, getting petted


When we went to the checkout, I did something new - I jumped on the counter! One of the employees came over to pet me. I had no idea checkout could be so much fun.

I don’t think this employee was really trying to find my barcode, but it sure looks like it.

That was lots of fun! Let’s go back and buy some more stuff!

4 Awesome Ways to Create Autism Awareness This April

Autism is a serious problem in the world today, with 1 in 68 children suffering from the neurodevelopmental disorder in the US. Families with autistic children have to deal with a lot of hardships when it comes to treatments and interventions, and treatment costs. What heightens their hardships is the way their child with autism is treated by the society at large, which is often unpleasant and stems from a lack of awareness about autism.

The stress autism families go through can be reduced to some extent with the kind support of their friends and people in general. Such a kind and supportive attitude can be developed among people by creating awareness among them and educating them about autism.

Here is a list of ways in which you can create autism awareness in the society this April – the autism awareness month:

  1. The Autism Ribbon

The autism ribbon – a ribbon with puzzle pieces – is often contained in jewelry, displayed on T-shirts and more. The autism ribbon was made by the Autism Society in 1999, and currently serves as a universal autism awareness symbol. As per the Autism Society, the ribbon’s puzzle pattern indicates the complexity of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The various shapes and colors symbolize the diversity of families and people living with the disorder. The ribbon’s brightness represents hope, that with increased autism awareness, early interventions and treatments, and access to proper support and services, children and adults with autism can lead better and fulfilled lives, interacting with the world around them in their own way.

People show the autism ribbon often to start a conversation about the way the condition affects them or any family member. Some people are even glad to answer questions on autism and encourage others to get an insight into how it is to live with the neurodevelopmental disorder.

The Awareness Expo is a one-stop shop to find T-shirts and accessories with the autism ribbon.

  1. Autism Awareness Jewelry

The autism awareness necklaces and bracelets by The Awareness Expo are a great way to spread awareness about the condition throughout the year. Such jewelry items often display puzzle pieces as a symbol of autism. The jewelry items are not only cool and trendy, but also serve the purpose of increasing autism awareness. They are available in gift boxes, making them awesome gifts for a friend or loved one with the disorder.

  1. Autism Awareness T-shirts

T-shirts are another effective way to boost autism awareness. At The Awareness Expo, you can find T-shirts displaying puzzle pieces and the colourful ribbon with puzzle pieces, as symbols of the condition. The T-shirts are machine washable and 100% cotton, making them suitable for regular use. They are a great way of showing your support towards autism awareness.

  1. Discussion About Autism Awareness

It’s quite intimidating to have a conversation around autism spectrum disorder and how the condition affects you or a family member. Such a conversation may arise as response for a misunderstanding about ASD or a negative interaction. However, you may choose to initiate a conversation on the topic by inviting a few people and hosting a Q&A session about the condition at your home. Such a conversation can be a great opportunity for others to put forth their questions about autism that they were not comfortable to ask previously.

In whatever way you choose to support and create autism awareness in the month of April, your contribution is always valuable. With more and more people supporting the cause, we can together create a world that understands autism better and is a better place for people with autism.

The Cat's Eye Boyz Tell All


Actually, Thompson, Diego-san and Theo don’t tell all, but they do tell enough to get your attention.


Funny Farmer Felines: Please introduce yourselves.


Theo: Hi! My name is Thelonious, Theo for short! I’m happy you are all interested in me and my brothers. The food guy says I’m such a friendly and playful cat! He says I love to do three things! Eat, play and eat!


Diego-san: Hey doofus, they aren’t interested in you. Obviously the article is about me. I’m in charge here. I’m suave, sophisticated and mysterious just like the Mexican painter I’m named after…


Thompson: All I want is a peaceful and quiet house.


Theo: Thompson is missing a leg! But he’s such a cool brother to have!



Funny Farmer Felines: If you have any furry siblings, please introduce them too.


Theo: No other furry siblings other than my brothers although the food guy often tells me we should get a puppy to wear me out!


Diego-san: We’d need a monkey to do that.


Funny Farmer Felines: How did you all come to live together?


Thompson: I’ll take this one. Diego-san and I were living in a foster home when our current food guy came to visit us. At first I wasn’t too sure what to make of him but Diego went right over and ended up in his arms. I have to say the food guy looked a little sad and later he told us of the cat that used to live in our house before us, Mr. Max. He said when Max died he was so sad that he didn’t think he could live with another cat again. But then someone pointed out there were so many of us who needed good homes, that he clearly could provide one, so he was shirking his duties.  This led him to looking at bringing home two cats.


Diego and I ended up in the same foster home after I lost my leg in an animal trap. We bonded so the shelter people really wanted us adopted together. The food guy visited us at a showing at Petco where Diego was getting all the attention. He visited us one more time at our foster home and then brought us to our new home. I was the brave one as Diego hid in the basement the first few days as I explored all the rooms and bonded with the food guy.


Diego-san: I wasn’t afraid. I was being nice to allow you to bond. Also, I had to make sure the basement was secure and not full of monsters.


Theo: Hey! Where do I fit in!


Thompson: After the food guy had the upper wing of the house finished, he decided there was room for another cat and he brought you home.


Diego-san: %^&*$@!


Funny Farmer Felines: Tell us a little about the area where you live.


Theo: We live in a place the food guy calls Mini Soda! I’ve never had a soda but if I did I think I’d like a Maxi Soda! The food guy says we live in the same area where this musical purple guy used to live.


Funny Farmer Felines: Do you have any nicknames?


Theo: Sometimes the food guy calls me his little fella although I now weigh more than my brothers!


Diego-san: Just “D”. I wouldn’t allow anything else.



Theo: The food guy says when Diego was brought in to have that special surgery, he was named Lucy! Then they found out he was a boy!


Diego-san: $%^&*@!


Thompson: He calls me Thompers sometimes. The people at the hospital called me “Tumbles” when I was trying to learn how to walk again. That wasn’t very nice.


Funny Farmer Felines: What kind of mischief do you like to get into, either separately or together?


Theo: I love to chase Diego all around the house! Up and down stairs!


Diego-san: @#$%&*!


Thompson: I used to chew up boxes but I don’t do that so much anymore.


Theo: I love inspecting boxes and grocery bags!



Funny Farmer Felines: What made you open a blog?


Thompson: The food guy says he started our blog just to have a place to store our photos and to write something on a daily basis. He never thought anyone would ever read our blog although how could they not? We’re quite blogworthy in my humble opinion. We’ve posted nearly every day since 2006.


Funny Farmer Felines: What is your greatest love and your biggest fear?


Theo: My greatest love is being around others! I love to socialize! My biggest fear is we are going to run out of food! We still have food don’t we?!


Diego-san: I love to snuggle. My biggest fear is the food guy will play that blasted guitar thingy again.


Thompson: I love both my brothers. I don’t like it much when a human other than the food guy stops in our house.


Funny Farmer Felines: How would you describe yourself?


Theo: I’m an introvert! But a really friendly one!


Diego-san: I’m the snoopervisor around here. I like to watch everything that goes on in this house.


Thompson: They say I’m the talker and I do like to express my thoughts so everyone can hear. The food guy says the saddest thing was once when I lost my voice and I would try talking and there was no sound. Thankfully that only lasted for a few days.



Funny Farmer Felines: If we were to ask your human what he loves best about you, what do you think he would say?


Theo: I love to sit in his lap when he eats breakfast! He calls it our special time together!


Diego-san: He loves it when I let him take a nap with me. He also loves it when I sit on his lap while he’s reading a book. I spoil him sometimes.


Thompson: I don’t join the three when they are in the basement watching that picture tube thing, but the food guy has said he loves the rare times when I do come down and rest my head on his arm. He also has said that he loves how close my head can get to his chest on the side where my leg is missing.

Caturday Extras

somali cat with chewed on bag of treats


I have some photos that went unused on the blog for various reasons that I thought you might like to see! Actually, the one above is a little bit of a cheat because I just used it on my post for the Secret Paws 2017 blog. What can I say? This is what happens when you leave a treat bag unattended around here.

This actually happened with both humans in the room. They just weren’t paying attention and next thing they knew, the treat bag was stuck on my head! The reason that this photo didn’t wind up on the blog is because my human’s boyfriend took it, and the file was a little too small. But I know you guys want to see it anyway - it’s not like it’s that much smaller than the other photos.

This photo was part of a test my human was doing for my 2019 calendar! Yes, we are starting early. She wanted me in the hat, not looking at the camera, and the tree to be out of focus. It’s a nice photo, but she wants to tweak things a little bit. This is the main reason the tree is still up.

Unlike the rest of the U.S., we are having rather mild winter here in southern California. So I’ve been having some outside time. It’s still cool enough for me to wear a sweater (at least my human thinks so!). This photo is just a touch out of focus - mainly a motion blur.

And here is a portrait from the same session. I hope you enjoyed today’s extras!
