Alguém explica a existência de campanhas contra Xuxa e Claudia Leitte?

Claudia Leitte é alvo de campanhas na internet

Verifica-se no meio TV, celebridades etc., a existência de uma contínua preocupação em se marcar determinadas pessoas. É como se estivessem juradas, alvos dos mais perversos e violentos objetivos. Sabe-se lá o porquê e com qual intenção.
São declaradas as campanhas contra Xuxa, Claudia Leitte, entre outras pessoas, independentemente de sexo, raça, cor, religião ou até mesmo o time de preferência.
É alguma coisa que beira o absurdo e com uma repercussão que ultrapassa todos os limites do tolerável. Respeito é bom, todo mundo gosta e merece.
Talvez só Freud para poder explicar este tipo de comportamento.

Socceroos coach and Greek star set for reunion

Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou alongside FFA CEO David Gallop at Wednesday morning's press conference.

Australia’s Sydney friendly with Greece in June will be a reunion of sorts for coach Ange Postecoglou, who has a personal connection with Greek star Andreas Samaris.

Postecoglou coached the exciting midfielder when he was in charge of Greek club Panachaiki in 2008, and they are set to reunite for the clash in Sydney on June 8.

It was Postecoglou who saw talent in the then 18-year-old Samaris, giving him a start in the first team at the Greek third division club.

And, like Postecoglou, Samaris has since gone on to bigger and better things, now playing for Portuguese giants Benfica while he has 20 caps for Greece.

I’m looking forward to it, they have some great individuals. I’ve got a personal connection in Andreas Samaris whose a big part of their national team.

“I coached him when I was in Greece and he was a teenager and we were throwing him in,” Postecoglou revealed on Tuesday.

“Seeing him blossom and playing at Benfica and now part of the Greece team…I know the quality that’s in their [Greece] side and it’s going to be a fantastic challenge for our boys.”

Postecoglou added the game against Greece will see the visitors taking it very seriously as they prepare for their European World Cup qualifiers.

“What I like about this game is I know Greece are pretty determined, they had a very disappointing European Championships qualifying campaign and they are a pretty proud country.

“The country itself has been going through a pretty hard time and the football team has kind of been the beacon in recent years.

“I know when they come here they will take it very seriously, they don’t want to miss the next World Cup.”

Key points 

  • This Greece game is the last time Australia play before the final round of AFC qualifying begins in September.
  • Greece failed to qualify for Euro 2016 in June.
  • This fixture’s history goes back to 1969 when the Greeks played three games in Australia, with a win a loss and a draw.

“Even these games in March and the ones in the May-June window will be an opportunity to just make sure that leading into the final round of qualifying I’ve explored every option I have.

“I want to make sure that in every position we have enough depth to cover anything that happens over what’s going to be a pretty tough qualifying process to get to Russia.

“We’ve cast the net far and wide over this period of qualifying and even with the squad in March you will see some new faces in there and we’ll continue to do that in the games against Greece.

“By the time the main round of qualifying comes we’ll have a real solid base and foundation to cope with what’s ahead.”

The match will have extra special significance for Postecoglou, who was born in Greece before his family immigrated to Australia when he was young.

“I’ve been to World Youth Cups, World Cups, World Club Championships, we’ve got the Confeds Cup coming up…it’s definitely going to be a special moment,” the Socceroo boss said.

“It’s the country of my berth, my parents made the bold decision many years ago and without that I wouldn’t have lived the life I have.

“On the night I think it will be a very special night…. Hopefully I’ll have a good memory of it at the end by performing well and doing the country proud.”

Greek respect for Socceroos’ World Cup record

Greece celebrate Panagiotis Kone scoring against Hungary in Euro 2016 qualifying.

Greece coach Michael Skibbe has paid tribute to the Socceroos’ impressive record of qualifying for three straight World Cups ahead of the two sides’ friendly in June.

Speaking on video at the announcement of the clash against Australia in Sydney on June 4, Skibbe praised Ange Postecgolou’s side and said he is excited by the challenge of heading Down Under.

“It is far, far away from Europe to go to Australia but on the other hand they have a really good team,” Skibbe said.

“They play very good, nearly every time they are going to the World Cups and doing well.

“We are looking forward to see them again maybe in Russia in 2018.

“They have a lot of players playing in Europe so I think this will be very tough for us.”

Key points 

  • This Greece game is the last time Australia play before the final round of AFC qualifying begins in September.
  • Greece failed to qualify for Euro 2016 in June.
  • This fixture’s history goes back to 1969 when the Greeks played three games in Australia, with a win a loss and a draw

Greece made the last 16 at the last World Cup – only losing on penalties to Costa Rica – but have struggled since that elimination in Brazil.

They missed out on qualification for the upcoming European Championships in France.

So the clash with Australia at ANZ Stadium will mark a crucial test for the national team as Europe’s qualifiers for Russia 2018 start in September.

“For us it is very important because we aren’t playing in the European Championships so we have to look at our performance,” Skibbe said.

“Therefore it is very important to have these matches in Australia and I hope we will travel with my best team, my best players, no one will be injured and we will have a good time there.”

Greek skipper Sokratis Papastathopoulos – a former team-mate of Socceroo gloveman Mitch Langerak at Borussia Dortmund – said his side was thrilled to play in front of the large Greek community in Sydney and he was looking forward to the chance of catching up with the shot-stopper.

Aussie refs selected for AFC Project Future

Referee Rachel Mitchenson takes charge of a match in Queensland's NPL.

Two Australian referees have been selected for the AFC’s Project Future Referee Development Program having been identified as among Asia’s top emerging match officials.

Westfield W-League Referee Rachel Mitchenson (Qld) and Fourth Official Maddison Kennedy (SA) will take part in the program following strong performances at the AFC U-14 Girls Regional Championships in Vietnam in June 2015 and the AFC Project Future Selection Course in Kuala Lumpur in November 2015.

Project Future is a unique elite development program for young referees from AFC Member Associations. The participants will attend four development courses during the two year program incorporating theoretical and practical development sessions.

Mitchenson is looking forward to the opportunity to continue to improve her refereeing ability and knowledge through the Project Future program.

“Project Future is a brilliant learning opportunity and I look forward to taking my refereeing to the next level. The theoretical and practical training throughout the courses are of the highest quality,” said Mitchenson.

“It is such an honour to follow in the footsteps of other Queensland referees to have gone through Project Future, such as Jarred Gillett, Alex King and Casey Reibelt. I’ve seen first-hand how it has assisted their development and advanced their refereeing careers – I endeavour to do the same.”

Kennedy is also looking forward to building on her experiences in Vietnam and Kuala Lumpur in 2015:

“Both the AFC U-14 Tournament and the Selection Course in Malaysia were fantastic experiences,” said Kennedy.

“In Vietnam and Malaysia we were coached by some of the best instructors in Asia and the detailed feedback that they provided has been invaluable to my refereeing development.

“With both of these courses under my belt, I’m hoping to go into the Batch 2015 Selection Course with the right mental and physical preparation in order to continue progressing in the Project Future program.

“I have been very fortunate to be included in the 2015 Batch of the Project Future Referees Program and I want to make the most of this once in a lifetime opportunity.

Ultimately, I want to progress as far as I can as a referee to reach my goals, which include refereeing on the Westfield W-League, PS4 National Premier League and one day as a FIFA official.”

The first course will be held from 25 February – 1 March at AFC House in Kuala Lumpur.

Socceroos to face Greece at ANZ Stadium

Socceroos to face Greece at ANZ Stadium in Sydney on 4 June

The Socceroos will return to ANZ Stadium in Sydney for the first time since winning the AFC Asian Cup Final to take on 2004 European Champions Greece on Saturday 4 June.

The Socceroos last met Greece in 2006 when the two nations played before departing for the 2006 FIFA World Cup, with the Socceroos winning that game 1-0 in front of 95,000 fans at the MCG.

The match will see Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou lead his nation against the country of his birth in a match that also gives the Socceroos a strong test against European opposition leading into the second round of World Cup Qualifying.

“We’re excited to lock in the match against Greece on home soil,” said Socceroos Coach Ange Postecoglou. “There’s no doubt the Greek match will be a hit with the Socceroos and Greek fans and we can look forward to a special atmosphere at ANZ Stadium.

“Playing Greece will be a good match up for us as we look to play as many teams as possible from outside our region when we have breaks from our World Cup Qualifiers against Asian opposition.

“We have two very important World Cup Qualifiers coming up in Adelaide and Sydney in March, which are our first focus but it is good to have this match locked in as we continue to build throughout the current World Cup cycle.”


“This is a premium event that will excite Socceroos fans,” said FFA CEO David Gallop. “Greece has a proud football history and with so many Australians having a Greek heritage this is going to be a special match. We look forward to seeing a sea of green and gold Socceroos supporters and the passionate Greek football fans create a tremendous atmosphere as we return to ANZ Stadium.”

NSW Minister for Trade, Tourism and Major Events and Minister for Sport Stuart Ayres said the event would attract thousands of visitors to Sydney, and provides a valuable chance for the Socceroos to play a top quality European opponent.

“I’m delighted the NSW Government has secured this fantastic sporting event for Sydney, 10 years since Greece last visited our shores,” Mr Ayres said.

“Greece has an enormous following right around the world, and it will be great to welcome these passionate fans to Sydney.”

Tickets for the June 4 match at ANZ Stadium go on sale to FFA Football Family members today from 10am today (Tuesday 23 February).

General tickets for the Sydney match are available on Thursday (25 February) from 11am (AEDT). For more information regarding ticketing please visit

Mobil to build new pipeline in efforts to boost fuel supply at Tullamarine

Mobil Oil Australia plans to boost jet fuel supplies to Melbourne Tullamarine through the construction of a new pipeline that will link its Yarraville fuel distribution terminal to the airport’s main fuel storage depot.

The company said on Monday work on the 2.7km pipeline had commenced and would take 12 months to finish.

BP, Caltex, Mobil and Shell are joint-venture partners in the Joint User Hydrant Installation (JUHI), which owns and manages the fuel depot and hydrant infrastructure at Melbourne Airport. Mobil operates the facility, which receives fuel from the Somerton Jet Fuel Depot via an 11km pipeline or from road tanker deliveries.

Mobil also operates the Somerton Jet Fuel Depot, which stores and distributes fuel on behalf of the joint venture partners. The company supplies fuel to Somerton from its Altona Refinery along a 34km pipeline.

This new 2.7km Yarraville pipeline will link up with this 34km pipeline. Currently, jet fuel from Yarraville is taken to Tullamarine via road tankers. Mobil said the new Yarraville pipeline would help the company meet the growing demand for jet fuel at Tullamarine amid increasing passenger flows and more flights from airlines into and out of Australia’s second busiest airport.

“By providing a direct connection from Mobil’s Yarraville Terminal to the Somerton Pipeline, we will be able to more efficiently transport fuel from our terminal to Melbourne Airport, one of the area’s most important transportation assets,” Mobil manager of refining for Australia and New Zealand Andrew Warrell said in a statement on Monday.

A summary of the jet fuel arrangements at the airport is shown below:

Mobil said the Yarraville Terminal was the largest fuel storage and distribution terminal in Melbourne and supplied about one third of Victoria’s fuel needs.

In 2015, Melbourne Airport was twice faced with fuel rationing after the National Operating Committee on Jet Fuel Supply Assurance (NOC) changed the fuel supply status at Tullamarine to a “black traffic light”, which indicated the need to ration fuel.

The first incident took place in January, with another “black traffic light” issued in October.

The Board of Airline Representatives of Australia (BARA), which represents 29 international airlines that fly into and out of Australia, said following the second indecent in October it was becoming “increasingly obvious that airlines do not have access to a reliable and competitive fuel supply” at Tullamarine.

A BARA policy paper released in December 2014 called for reform of the jet fuel supply supply chain through opening up competition clearing bottlenecks.

“The Australian and Victorian governments need to consider if it’s in the nation’s interest to risk prosperity in Victorian aviation and tourism by allowing the current jet fuel suppliers to determine the reliability and competitive supply of jet fuel at Melbourne Airport,” BARA executive director Barry Abrams said in October 2015.
