Gattuso suggests speculation that he turned down the job at La Viola at the last minute for a Premier League move tarnished his reputation and was untrue.

The 44-year-old, who is now in charge of Valencia, said: “Everyone thought I left Fiorentina because I already agreed with Tottenham, but that didn’t happen.

“Tottenham came later, then I didn’t go there to work for things that weren’t true. Tottenham managers fell for it and I paid.

“When these things happen it becomes difficult to defend yourself, luckily the management at Valencia have supported me.

“Social media can destroy a character or a person and there are many examples: I think of the kids who end up on the internet and because of a small mistake they stay tagged for the rest of their lives.

“When you have family and friends who support you on a daily basis, everything disappears, but when you don’t have that, it’s difficult.”

Last summer, the north London club were on the hunt for a new manager following the sacking of Jose Mourinho.

Gattuso was considered but fan backlash didn’t help his cause.

After many deals failed, the club ended up at Nuno Espirito Santo.

Chairman Daniel Levy soon sacked him and replaced the ex-Wolves gaffer with Antonio Conte.

The veteran Italian has done an excellent job since taking charge of leading Spurs to qualify for the Champions League.

And now he’s being heavily backed in the transfer market as Tottenham have signed six players so far this summer.

Tim Tebow: Human Trafficking Is 'One Of The Greatest Evils In The World'

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow reiterated his call to help victims of human trafficking during his appearance on “Sunday Night in America.”

Tebow, who celebrated his 35th birthday, encouraged viewers to help his foundation fight “one of the greatest evils in the world”.

“There are currently an estimated 40.3 million people trapped in this horrible scourge of human trafficking, so many more are actually being exploited online and that number is growing every day,” said Tebow.

He told the story of his pastor father who rescued four girls from an auction, which led him to advocate for protective shelters to house and hide victims of human trafficking.

HOW MY TIM TEBOW FOUNDATION WORKS TO SAVE SURVIVORS OF HIGH RISK HUMAN TRAFFICKING

“I knew that God had opened my eyes to a new calling that day and since we are getting more and more involved in this fight. And what we really need is an army because it there’s an army of bad guys doing terrible things, and so we need an army of good people standing up against them because there are so many precious lives at stake,” he said.

He added: “It’s our job. It’s our job to defend them, to give them a place of refuge, to give them a safe place to protect them. So maybe for the first time in their lives , they’ll actually feel free and feel safe. That’s why it’s important.”

Currently, the Tim Tebow Foundation is working on building a new center in Thailand and is asking for donations to help complete the building. Tebow noted that the structure is needed because many victims of human trafficking do not have a safe haven.

Federal Reports From 2021 Showed That 57% Of Human Trafficking Victims In The United States Were Minors.

TIM TEBOW’S FAITHFUL FIGHT AGAINST HUMAN TRAFFICKING: “CALL TO” DO THIS

“What some of these people do, they prey on the desperate. They prey on those who are alone, who are looking for friends and looking for a relationship, they are looking for a home. And so they end up vulnerable all over the world .. They build those relationships and then they do terrible things,” Tebow said.

He concluded: “There are 15 girls currently waiting for this house to be built and we hope to be able to save many more and bring them to this house. We need your help, but honestly, it’s not about us. They need your help. They need us to work together to defend them, because they are worth it.

Levi Strauss Heir Spends $2 Million Of His Own Money On New York Campaign

Levi Strauss & Co. heir Dan Goldman has reportedly thrown millions of dollars from his own coffers into his campaign for a seat in Congress in New York, even as donors continue to give him money.

Dan Goldman allegedly used $2 million for the race, according to a New York Post article published on Saturday which cited financial records:

Goldman poured $1 million into his campaign on Wednesday ahead of the Aug. 23 Democratic primary — just days after donating an additional $1 million, campaign records show.

In addition to the influx of his own money, Goldman’s coffers have been flooded with more than $1.5 million in contributions from more than 2,500 individual donors, his campaign confirmed on Saturday.

According to records, this included more than $200,000 from relatives and others with ties to the company.

Goldman has set his sights on the newly drawn 10th congressional district, an area of ​​lower Manhattan and part of Brooklyn.

Additionally, Goldman announcement On Saturday, he had been supported by the far left New York Times:

“The 10th Congressional District was redesigned by court order following the Democratic Party debacle, eliminating Manhattan’s Upper West Side from the district and adding more parts of Brooklyn,” said the Job says the article.

In April, Consumers’ Research launched an ad campaign targeting American Express and Levi’s for pushing the “woke” policy instead of helping customers, Breitbart News reported.

“The group noted, although it has fiduciary responsibilities to its shareholders, that it responds to left-wing ideals rather than its consumers,” the outlet said.

The ad said Levi’s advanced progressive politics, opposed the 2nd Amendment, attacked voter ID laws and screwed up workers by “furloughing thousands, while rewarding wealthy stockholders.”

Additionally, Levi Strauss & Co. address the Supreme Court’s decision on abortion in June, saying that “the protection of reproductive rights is a critical business issue”, his article said:

Despite the company’s position, the court overturned Roe vs. Wadeholding in the Dobbs cases that the Constitution does not provide for the right to abortion, Breitbart News reported.

The outlet added, “The issue of abortion is now up to the states to enact whatever restrictions on abortions voters in each state choose to enact.”

In 2018, Levi Strauss & Co. continued to support gun control by providing jeans to people appearing in an Everytown for Gun Safety gun control PSA, according to Breitbart News.

The Best Sci-Fi Shows On Hbo Max

AfterLike other streamers, HBO Max features an eclectic lineup of sci-fi series, including originals, older titles, and great international offerings. What sets HBO Originals apart is a stamp of quality marked “prestige TV.” station eleven is the typical example of a prestigious salon. With long episodes, high production values, and an excellent Metacritic score (81), the unconventional post-apocalyptic series is the epitome and pinnacle of HBO Max’s sci-fi offerings.

Unfortunately, you might notice a few titles disappearing from HBO Max, including Snowpiercer. Additionally, Made For Love was canceled after season 2. This all follows the merger of Warner Bros. and Discovery. Here is After on what that means.

For more excellent and noteworthy sci-fi series on HBO Max, scroll down.

His Dark Matters (2019-2022)

His Dark Materials the TV show is the second attempt to bring Philip Pullman’s classic fantasy novels to the screen (the 2007 flop The Golden Compass, starring Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig, was grounded in a slow, shallow script). Set in a world where people’s souls manifest as pets, the source material isn’t exactly straightforward. Launch into parallel universes, talking polar bears, and a wildly imaginative story about growing up, and you’re on an exciting philosophical adventure. Ruth Wilson, James McAvoy and Dafne Keen bolster the TV show’s smoother, more mature attempt.

HBO Max

Despite being 90% a superhero show, Peacemaker features visitors from another planet, so it lands on this list. The Suicide Squad spin-off series centers on the titular peace, an outrageous John Cena who explores where his catchphrase – “I cherish peace with all my heart. I don’t care how many men, women and children that I kill to get it” — comes from. Swearing, gory, and bouncing to a rock soundtrack, the James Gunn-penned series is a lively time with a surprising heart.

HBO

The Leftovers (2014-2017)

Maybe it’s considered more supernatural than science fiction, and it’s certainly far from hard science fiction, but come on. It’s Leftovers. It’s Damon Lindelof, the genius who turned Watchmen into an acclaimed TV show. The Leftovers follows what happens after the inexplicable disappearance of 2% of the world’s population. Amid the emergence of a number of cults, all three seasons focus on two families, the Garveys and the Murphys, and how the “Sudden Departure” event turns their lives upside down.

The Time Traveler’s Wife (2022)

It may have been canceled after one season, but it was one hell of a (weird) season. The Time Traveler’s Wife revolves around an absurd concept: a man (Theo James) spontaneously jumps back and forth in time – without taking his clothes with him. In other words, he finds himself naked in front of oncoming trains, in the middle of the street and in forests where he meets his future wife (Rose Leslie). Based on Audrey Niffenegger’s popular novel, which spawned a 2009 movie, The Time Traveler’s Wife will satisfy fans of the book and entertain those able to look past the slight ick factor. Doctor Who fans note that Steven Moffat writes the series, bringing his wit and time-traveling complexity.

At this point, new fans might be hard to find when it comes to this long-running British show. But if you’re interested in diving into wildly inventive, genre-bending, barnstorming adventure, try Jodie Whittaker’s latest episodes. Whittaker takes the place of the Doctor, an alien adventurer who travels through time and space with a kind heart and an offbeat sense of humor. Serious fun.

Five seasons of this sci-fi procedural await you. Immerse yourself in parallel universes and alternate timelines with the Fringe Division, a team of agents tasked with investigating unexplained phenomena. After a lackluster first season, Fringe found its way, delivering inventive ideas and a stirring emotional core.

HBO

Alice in Wonderland meets a lot of robots. The truly mind-bending sci-fi western might be spinning in complex circles by Season 3, but its exhilarating first season kicked down the barn door. Set in a violent and sinister amusement park, where wealthy guests can shoot, kill and rape the android hosts in various ways, the focus is on Dolores, a host who begins to become sentient. No, she’s not happy with the way she was treated. Addictive and challenging, Westworld asks you to figure out the pieces of its puzzle. Plus, many are saying Season 4 is a comeback.

Person of Interest (2011-2016)

This sci-fi crime drama, created by Jonathan Nolan, has earned a place among the best sci-fi TV shows of all time. The series centers around some of the Precog-esque technology used by the government to predict terrorist attacks. However, the machine can also warn of smaller, but still deadly crimes, and a splinter team of undercover investigators set out to help related persons of interest. Dealing with delicate issues such as the concept of “the greater good”, Person of Interest is a fascinating, spectacular and comprehensive espionage procedure.

What would you do if your husband installed a chip in your brain to monitor your every move? Hazel Green (Cristin Milotti) faces this dilemma and quickly goes on the run with the not entirely helpful help of her father (Ray Romano). Traverse tricky territory in this satirical relationship drama with a Black Mirror side and a helpful Dolphin. Yes, Made for Love is as full of surprises as it is ultimately disturbing.

Warner Bros Television.

An influential legacy show, Babylon 5 may have dated edges to the present day, but it would be blasphemy to ignore it on this list. The basic premise sees a group of humans and alien species working together on the Babylon 5 space station as Earth carves out a place for itself in the galactic community. Political intrigue, character studies, and the threat of war ensue.

TNT/YouTube/CNET screenshot

Falling Skies (2011-2015)

Starring executive producer Steven Spielberg, this post-apocalyptic sci-fi brings family drama to alien invasions. Falling Skies centers on a group of survivors who plan to defend themselves after a global invasion by aliens. Five seasons introduce multiple alien races, space travel, and a satisfying final showdown.

HBO

If you were blown away by Russell T Davies’ It’s a Sin, Years and Years is a must. The ambitious sci-fi series spans 15 years, skipping forward each episode to capture the ups and downs of the eclectic Lyons family. From technological developments to jaw-dropping life upheavals, Lyonnais navigate the ringtone without ever giving up a heartwarming sense of humor.

Believe everything you hear about Station Eleven. One of the best shows of 2021, the dystopian meditative thriller (that last descriptor can only apply to certain episodes) is prestige television that takes you on a journey to surprising, moving, and unique destinations. After two timelines, the main focus is on the brilliant heroine Kirsten (Mackenzie Davis), a woman who survived a world-destroying pandemic and now roams the remains with a theater troupe known as the Traveling Symphony. Created by Patrick Somerville, whose writing work on The Leftovers can be felt here, Station Eleven takes an optimistic look at the end of the world.

Raised by Wolves (2020-22)

Raised by Wolves will satisfy those who want to spend a plot of time (nearly 10 hours, not counting the second season) in a world brought to the screen with the help of Ridley Scott. Two androids, Mother and Father, attempt to establish an atheist human colony on a new planet, after a war with a religious order destroys Earth. But they soon discover that controlling the beliefs of humans is a tricky business. Directing the first two episodes, in addition to pulling the strings as executive producer, Scott sets up a provocative exploration of AI and religious beliefs. There’s blood, great performance and a powerful lead in Amanda Collin’s mother. (Unfortunately, despite a stellar second season, the series was canceled.)

Relatives clash with police over Arizona school lockdown

Relatives Clash With Police Over Arizona School Lockdown

A man who appears to be armed approaches a school campus. The police arrive. With the school closed, terrified family members seek to get inside to reach the children.

Like the opening moments of what unfolded in March in Uvalde, Texas, this footage during a scare in Arizona on Friday led to heated exchanges between parents and relatives of schoolchildren and authorities. But the confrontation then took a different turn. Ultimately, three people were arrested, two of whom were shocked with stun guns, after attempting to enter the grounds of Thompson Ranch Elementary School in the town of El Mirage, police said.

The man who caused the lockdown has been taken into custody and no children or teachers were injured. But in Uvalde’s wake, the clash involving parents represents a disturbing view of the rage and mistrust that can make a school crisis even more chaotic.

Arizona authorities said officers arrived at the scene shortly after someone reported a man who appeared to have a handgun and was trying to gain access to the school. The man then fled in an unknown direction. Officers sought to ensure there was no longer a threat on the ground, during which time they discovered a suspicious package which police say was “eventually examined by explosives technicians and made safe”.

But as worried parents and relatives began to arrive, one person who was barred from entering the school got into a run-in with officers, police said. Two other people joined, prompting the officers to fire their stun guns and arrest the three of them. One of them was injured and taken to hospital, authorities said.

The identity of the containment suspect was not revealed on Sunday. He was being assessed by mental health professionals and criminal charges were pending, police said. The names of those arrested in the altercation were not available on Sunday.

Video of the confrontation posted on social media shows parents and relatives shouting and jostling with officers. At one point, a clicking noise can be heard, and seconds later the video shows a handgun on the ground near one of the parents. The crowd disperses as police fire stun guns and begin making arrests. A trail of blood can be seen on the sidewalk near a handcuffed man, moaning in pain.

In an account given to KPNX-TV in Arizona, Darlene Gonzales, whose daughter was inside the school, said that after telling parents the threat of lockdown was over, she and her son sought to enter the school but were told to go to the library. At that point, she says, the situation escalated and she was thrown to the ground. She added that the weapon seen in the video belonged to her son.

El Mirage Police Department Chief Paul Marzocca said those involved in the altercation broke the law and were responsible for what happened.

“You can’t create this chaos in a school in an emergency situation and walk away,” he said.

Many people responded to Chief Marzocca’s statement expressing their support for the police response. “Parents need to control themselves when officers are trying to work,” Lori Jones, who said she lives about 30 minutes from El Mirage, said in a comment on the police department’s Facebook page. “Set an example for your children!!”

But some residents sympathized with the frustration parents might have felt. One commentator said the backlash was “a direct by-product” of what happened at Uvalde.

Ron Avi Astor, a professor at the University of California, Los Angeles who studies school violence, said such clashes between parents and officials were a symptom of deteriorating trust in law enforcement. order to handle situations like El Mirage.

“You can see that these parents don’t trust the police because of everything they’ve seen or heard,” he said. And unless that perception changes, he said, it’s likely that more loved ones and bystanders will continue to try to take matters into their own hands.

But the wide media coverage of situations in which the police response to a shooting is heavily criticised, such as in Uvalde, creates a narrative that is not necessarily representative of how the police tend to handle these situations, explained Dr. Astor, adding that the police must help change this narrative.

“They have to be honest, they have to be trustworthy and they have to have the right approach,” he said of the police. “I think that’s how you build trust.”
