Hours after a mesmerising World Cup and a final which saw France triumph, heavy rain in Russia on Sunday damaged one of the stadiums newly-built for the football extravaganza.
Footage from the southern city of Volgograd showed a fresh landslide on an embankment near the stadium, which made a several-metre-deep hole in it and covered a sidewalk with mud.
A spokesman for the state-owned company overseeing the construction said there were also leaks inside the stadium which could take up to a week to repair.
Volgograd Arena, a stadium that can accommodate up to 45,000 spectators, was built for the World Cup at a cost over 16 billion rubles ($257 million), according to data on the regional government's website.
New York Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez struggled to explain her position on the Israel-Palestine conflict Friday night before admitting she is “not an expert” on the situation.
“I also think that what people are starting to see in the occupation of Palestine is just an increasing crisis of humanitarian conditions, and that, to me, is just where I tend to come from on this issue,” Ocasio-Cortez said on “Firing Line” on Friday night.
Host Margaret Hoover pushed back on Ocasio-Cortez, a self-described Democratic Socialist, asking her to expand on her claim that Israel occupies Palestine.
“Oh — I think what I meant is that the settlements that are increasing in some of these areas and places where Palestinians are experiencing difficulty in access to housing and homes,” Ocasio-Cortez replied.
“Do you think you can expand on that?” Hoover asked again.
“Yeah I think — I am not the expert on geopolitics on this issue,” Ocasio-Cortez finally admitted.
Planned Parenthood of New York City — claiming Big Apple residents “have more sex than anyone else in America. (Woo! We did it!)” — wants to “make sure that everyone has access to the sexual and reproductive health care services they need.”
To that end, the organization launched a fundraising campaign this week aimed at millennials — and it broadcasts its intent in no uncertain terms: “Protect our freedom to f***.”
Planned Parenthood of New York City noted that in addition to being “proud to provide abortion services,” donations “will go toward ensuring all New Yorkers have access to the vital services they need, like birth control, STD testing and treatment, HIV testing and counseling, vasectomies, and pregnancy testing and counseling. … And we can’t forget sex education on consent, LGBTQ inclusivity, and healthy relationships.”
Watch what happens when this girl tries to explain why racism and white privilege are real. Nothing but "umm's" and stupid excuses like "because black people don't have power" aka... She believes only people in power can be racist. Which would mean black controlled cities like Baltimore are the only places you can find racists? Well, not exactly, because she doesn't believe anyone but white people can be racist. Despite admitting she herself benefited from the racist policy of affirmative action, even though she went to a mostly white school and had the same education as them... Yet still failed to make the grades to get into college without racist policies like affirmative action.
