A Globo levou ao ar a tão comentada discussão de Daniela Mercury e Bárbara Paz no “Altas Horas” –a briga das duas já havia sido noticiada e a dúvida era de fato se iria ao ar ou se seria cortada na edição.

O motivo do desentendimento foi a cena em que Félix (Mateus Solano) foi desmascarado pela família, em “Amor à Vida”, e teve sua sexualidade revelada.

Como já disse aqui nesse espaço, a novela por si só é um mar de exageros, criado por Walcyr Carrasco. A cena em questão é ridícula e dispensa demais críticas. Edith (Bárbara Paz) traindo Félix na casa onde a mãe do rapaz, Pilar (Susana Vieira), estava, além de outras pessoas, é algo surreal, inverossímil. Aí o vilão teve a sexualidade exposta e todos se assustaram, como se seu jeito forçado fosse incapaz de revelar que ali se escondia um gay.

Claro que achar a fórmula do sucesso de uma novela não é coisa fácil, sequer sabemos se existe realmente. Mas, hoje em dia, percebe-se que o público cobra certa proximidade da ficção com a realidade. O caso de Félix é o exemplo mais claro de como há ruídos em “Amor à Vida” que atrapalham o “voo” de quem assiste, como dizia Glória Perez na época em que “Salve Jorge” era alvo de um turbilhão de críticas.

A cantora baiana tem razão quando disse à atriz que o texto é cômico e coloca a questão do preconceito de uma forma que pouco se assemelha com o que vemos na vida real. E Bárbara Paz errou ao afirmar que aquela cena é o reflexo da sociedade. Não é. Talvez seja de uma parte dela. A própria Daniela se assumiu gay e teve o apoio da família.

“Amor à Vida” deixa claro que talvez não tenha totais condições de agregar conhecimentos e mostrar ao povo brasileiro que o tabu em torno do gay já não existe mais como antes. Ainda há preconceito? Há, é evidente que sim. Mas não é bem assim, as coisas estão mudando e isso também precisa ser registrado pelo texto do autor.

“Todo esse discurso sobre homossexualidade vai ser antológico para a televisão brasileira”, disse a atriz, no palco do “Altas Horas”. Vai sim. Porque, querendo ou não, “Amor à Vida” já quebrou o protocolo ao possuir tantos personagens gays, sendo que um deles é o vilão.

Em relação ao discurso, todo cuidado é pouco.  “O texto é muito padrão”, comentou Daniela. E isso diz muita coisa.

Classic Matches | Adelaide record largest A-League victory

Classic Matches | Adelaide record largest A-League victory

Some days you just can’t stop the onslaught.

Sitting at the bottom of the A-League table and with the finals out of reach it was an afternoon that the North Queensland Fury would never forget.

Adelaide United’s 8-1 home demolition of the Fury remains a league record for both the biggest victory and the highest score in an A-League match.

Sergio van Dijk and Marcos Flores both scored hat-tricks for the home side as they effortlessly picked apart the Fury’s defense.

Van Dijk set up Flores in the fourth minute to get the scoring underway as the Dutchman cut the ball in from the left for Flores to head home.

Flores then found space in the midfield and put a beautiful through ball in to set free Travis Dodd, as the Adelaide captain drilled the ball low past Justin Pasfield on 28 minutes.

Ten minutes on Dodd returned the favour as some flashy footwork in the box saw him put it on a platter for Flores as the home side moved to a 3-0 lead.

As halftime approached Flores skinned his man before his parried shot fell into the path of Iain Ramsey who had an easy finish to extend his side’s lead to four goals.

It was more of the same after the half as van Dijk headed home with only 70 seconds of the second stanza complete, before he had his second when he drilled the ball low into the bottom right corner of the goal.

Panny Nikas finally grabbed a goal back for his side when he struck the ball outside the box to beat an outstretched Eugene Galekovic with just under 20 minutes remaining.

It was to be Adelaide’s day though as van Dijk and Flores both completed their hat-tricks as both internationals scored off headers as they completed the 8-1 smashing of the hapless North Queensland side.

Adelaide would go on to finish the season in third position but were knocked out in the second week of the semi-finals by Gold Coast United.

If the Fury’s confidence wasn’t already shot from sitting bottom heading into the match with the Reds it surely was following it as they finished the season with eight straight defeats.

They ended the year four points behind Perth Glory in last in what was to be their last season in the competition.

Queensland’s transport minister says the state will have more money to spend on major projects like Cross River Rail with Tony Abbott as prime minister.

Scott Emerson says the state government will consider funding projects such as the $5.2 billion underground rail project in Brisbane.

Now we have a lot more money for projects like Cross River Rail

Mr Emerson says Labor wanted states to pay 50 per cent of funding for federal roads.

However, the coalition will reintroduce the traditional 80 per cent Commonwealth federal road funding.

“With the federal coalition in power, now we have a lot more money for projects like Cross River Rail,” he told reporters.

“So we’ll have a look at the project and see what we can do.”

Labor had promised to fund the project, but Mr Abbott has consistently said a coalition government would not fund urban rail projects.

Instead, he’s promised $6.7 million towards fixing the Bruce Highway.

Queensland Education Minister John-Paul Langbroek said the change in government was also great news for schools.

“I’ve had every reassurance that they’ll work with us so we can work on the priorities that states should be able to – that is, we run our schools,” he said.

Mines Minister Andrew Cripps promised the coalition win wouldn’t signal a loosening of environmental controls.

“It means a sensible arrangement between the Commonwealth and the states for the assessment and approvals for resource projects and other projects for economic development,” he said.

He said it would create certainty for business investment and jobs.

Tokyo wins bid to host 2020 Olympics

BUENOS AIRES (AP) ― The International Olympic Committee went for a familiar, trusted host, selecting Tokyo for the 2020 Games and signaling that playing it safe was preferable to more risky picks like Sochi and Rio.

With Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe reassuring IOC members on the Fukushima nuclear crisis, Tokyo defeated Istanbul 60-36 Saturday in the final round of secret voting. Madrid was eliminated earlier after an initial tie with Istanbul.

Tokyo, which hosted the 1964 Olympics, billed itself as the “safe pair of hands‘’ at a time of global political and economic turmoil ― a message that clearly resonated with the IOC.

(AP-Yonhap News)

With Madrid’s bid dogged by questions over Spain’s economic crisis and Istanbul handicapped by political unrest and the civil war in neighboring Syria, Tokyo offered the fewest risks.

“The certainty was a crucial factor ― the certainty that they could deliver,” IOC vice president Craig Reedie of Britain said.

The choice of Tokyo bucked the IOC‘s recent trend of taking chances on host cities ― Sochi, Russia, for the 2014 Winter Games, Rio de Janeiro for the 2016 Olympics and Pyeongchang, South Korea, for the 2018 Winter Games.

Preparations for Sochi have been overshadowed by cost overruns, a record $51 billion budget, security worries and an international outcry over Russia’s anti-gay legislation. There are mounting concerns among the IOC over construction delays in Rio.

The IOC‘s desire for a reliable, dependable host in 2020 was a crucial factor for Tokyo.

“For better or worse, we picked Sochi followed by Rio followed by Pyeongchang,” Canadian member Dick Pound said. “Maybe we need to say, ‘All right, whether it’s the most exciting city in the world or not, they will deliver.’”

Tokyo had been on the defensive in the final days of the campaign because of mounting concerns over the leak of radioactive water from the tsunami-crippled Fukushima nuclear plant.

In the final presentation, Abe gave the IOC assurances that the Fukushima leak was not a threat to Tokyo and took personal responsibility for keeping the games safe.

“Let me assure you the situation is under control,” Abe said. “It has never done and will never do any damage to Tokyo.”

Abe gave further assurances when pressed on the issue by Norwegian IOC member Gerhard Heiberg.

“It poses no problem whatsoever,” Abe said in Japanese, adding that the contamination was limited to a small area and had been “completely blocked.”

“There are no health-related problems until now, nor will there be in the future,” he said. “I make the statement to you in the most emphatic and unequivocal way.”

IOC members said Abe’s answers were critical and helped dispel any doubts.

“People wanted to hear it and needed to hear it,‘’ Pound said. “And he delivered on that. I think that was a real knockout answer.‘’

Tokyo Electric Power Co., Fukushima‘s operator, has acknowledged that tons of radioactive water has been seeping into the Pacific from the plant for more than two years after the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami led to meltdowns at three of its reactors. Recent leaks from tanks storing radioactive water used to cool the reactors have added to fears that the amount of contaminated water is getting out of hand.

Tokyo’s bid benefited from Japan‘s large economy and link to Olympic sponsors. Asia offers a huge market for the IOC.

“There are a lot of commercial advantages for the IOC going to a country with the third-biggest GDP,” Australian member John Coates said. “And then compare that to the economic uncertainty facing Spain and the political unrest that Istanbul experienced a few months ago and more particularly the unrest at the Middle East at the moment.

“The IOC, we’ve taken the safe bet.‘’

Tokyo delegates in the hall screamed with joy, jumped in the air, hugged and waved small flags after Rogge opened a sealed envelope and read the words: “The International Olympic Committee has the honor of announcing that the games of the 32nd Olympiad in 2020 are awarded to the city of Tokyo.‘’

Even though it was 5 a.m. Sunday in Japan, about 1,200 dignitaries and Olympic athletes who crowded into a convention hall in downtown Tokyo celebrated the news. Cheers of “Banzai!‘’ filled the hall when the announcement was made.

In Istanbul‘s old city, a groan went through a gathering of hundreds of people.

In the first round, Istanbul and Madrid tied with 26 votes each. Tokyo had 42 votes, six short of a winning a majority. Istanbul then beat Madrid 49-45 in a tiebreak to advance to the final, which Tokyo won easily.

After Madrid lost the tiebreak, a deathly hush fell over a crowd that had assembled in the Spanish capital’s Puerta de Alcala square and the music stopped.

“I am in shock,‘’ said Marta Castro, a housewife in the square. “I thought that it was a tiebreaker to see which city won and it turns out that it was to see which lost, and Madrid went out first. How sad! I hadn‘t imagined it.”

In their final presentations, Madrid made its case as the least-expensive option and Istanbul spoke of the historic opportunity to bring the Olympics to a predominantly Muslim country for the first time.

Madrid, bidding for a third straight time, had seemed to have gained the most momentum in recent weeks despite Spain’s economic crisis and 27 percent unemployment rate. The Madrid team claimed the games would pose no financial risk because most of the venues were already built.

The Turkish delegation pressed its case of taking the games to a city linking the continents of Europe and Asia.

With the civil war in Syria posing a major issue, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said selecting Turkey “will send a very meaningful and strong message, not only to the world, but to our broader region.‘’

Renato Maurício Prado comenta o desempenho de Vasco , Fluminense e Flamengo

   

O mesmo já não se pode dizer de Vasco, Fluminense e Flamengo, que continuam próximos, entre si, na tabela, e da zona da degola. O Vasco, com 24 pontos é o menos ameaçado. Empatou ontem em São Januário, com o surprendente Atlético Paranaense. De bom mesmo, além do veterano Juninho Pernambucano, há os garotos Marlone e Willie (que desta vez não brilhou tanto e acabou substituido por Montoya).

Já o Fluminense voltou a vencer (a duras penas) também graças a um garoto: Biro Biro, que entrou para incendiar o tricolor e garantir os três pontos contra o Bahia, no Maracanã.

 

Dos cariocas, derrotado na rodada, apenas o Flamengo, que se tornou também o lanterna do Rio, a apenas três pontos da Portuguesa, a primeira entre os quarto últimos. Na derrota por 1 a 0, diante do Cruzeiro, no Mineirão, até que os rubro-negros esbanjaram disposição. Mas, como de hábito, faltou talento, principalmente no meio-campo e no ataque, onde a bola mal chegou a Hernane – na melhor oportunidade, Dedé conseguiu chegar a tempo e bloquear o chute do Brocador.

Com o grupo atual, já se sabe, o Fla não pode ter grandes sonhos no Brasileirão. Se salvar do rebaixamento já é lucro…

Renato Maurício Prado comenta Criciúma 1 x 2 Botafogo

 1 x 2 

 

Se na rodada passada o golaço foi do estreante Hyuri, desta vez, a pintura foi protagonizada pelo centroavante Elias, que garantiu a vitória com um voleio espetacular, já no ultimo minuto dos acréscimos.Um gol que não somente garantiu a vice-liderança na tabela para o Glorioso, como serviu também para lavar a alma dos torcedores alvinegros, que vinham sofrendo com gols contra o seu time nos instantes finais de outros jogos.

Sem Seedorf e Lodeiro e com o jovem Hyuri em noite bem mais discreta do que a de sua estréia, o Botafogo saiu perdendo, ao sofrer um gol de Lins, logo aos três minutos do primeiro tempo, e precisou lutar muito para chegar ao empate, já no segundo, através de Otávio, aos oito.

A partir daí,com Oswaldo de Oliveira fazendo várias alterações para a equipe ficar mais ofensiva, os campeões cariocas pressionaram um bocado, mas o empate já  parecia selado quando, aos 46, Edilson cruzou da direita e Elias emendou de meia-bicicleta, estufando a rede e se tornando o herói alvinegro da rodada.

Apesar dos problemas, apesar dos desfalques, apesar até dos pontos que acabou desperdiçando, ao sofrer gols nos últimos minutos, deixando escapar vitórias que pareciam certas, o time de Oswaldo de Oliveira segue firme na caça ao Cruzeiro.

Candidatíssimo ao titulo.

SporTV 4 é mais um mito da internet

 

Apesar dos rumores no mercado, o SporTV não confirma a criação de um quarto canal, pelas dificuldades da operação e com a própria produção. O que continuará existindo, segundo a emissora, é a utilização dos canais Premiere quando houver necessidade. Outra nota é que já se estuda a viabilidade de um canal do SporTV, no ano que vem, ficar 24 horas com a Copa do Mundo.

Então é isso. Mas amanhã tem mais. Tchau!
