Formula 1 2013 Italian Grand Prix – Red Bulls Whip The Prancing Horse

21 Jul

Red Bull Continue High-Speed Success

Red Bull took their race-winning high-speed package to Monza to deliver a strong performance to wrap up the European season and extend their lead at the head of both championships.

After dominating qualifying at the famous circuit to lock out the front row, the Red Bull cars held off a strong challenge from Ferrari to take two steps on the podium on their way to another intimidating victory. Vettel once again lead from the front to fairly cruise to his 32nd career victory.

Into the Weekend

Two weeks after the mighty Spa-Francorchamps, Formula 1 headed to Monza, the oldest track on the calendar to bring the European season to a close. Another high-speed, low drag circuit, focused on engine power and top speed; it is another wonderfully passionate, emotive circuit that rarely fails to deliver a great weekend.

After dominating at Spa, Red Bull were looking strong as they arrived in Italy, confident after their Belgian performance. Ferrari were seeking a strong performance in front of a capacity home crowd and to try and turn over Red Bull for the victory to steal some much needed points. Mercedes wanted to reverse the disappointment they found in Spa with a good result that one might expect from their strong engine, whilst Lotus were hoping to get back to successful points finishes after they only brought one car home in Belgian.

McLaren were intending to get another good result from their car, which seemed to perform better in low drag conditions, taking them to points and fifth in the constructors last time out. Force India had a disappointing race in Spa and slipped behind McLaren, so they were looking to reverse their fortunes in Italy to capitalise on a key characteristic of their car that has often been so good; their clean aerodynamics and engine power. Torro Rosso were seeking to get both their cars into the points after the promise of Spa failed to pan out for them.

Sauber struggled in their last outing so were seeking to improvement they could find, targeting points. Williams poor form continued in Belgium, with no sign of any increase in their raw pace and were just hoping to get forward and mix it with those chasing the points. Caterham held their position over Marussia in Belgium but had mixed fortunes due to a retirement, and were intending to convert their competitive edge into a result in Italy. Marussia were aiming to close the gap back to Caterham once more and reverse their fortunes of recent races.

Sports Journalism is a precise art and there are ways in which you can make your own life easier when trying to focus your efforts into being the best possible sports journalist you can be. Each journalist will have their own little cheats and tips on how to get ahead of the game and make sure your articles are the best and most accurate that they can be. A helping hand, therefore, for doing this is making sure that you’re viewing the right accounts that will help you as much as possible on social networking sites- especially Twitter.

Focusing mainly on football journalists, I’ve quickly selected the 10 accounts that I’d most recommend you follow. Each account is helpful in its own way, either with news, views, or for humour. This is a personal view on which twitter accounts football journalists must follow and if you do have any suggestions of your own then please leave them in the comments and I’ll give them a look.

The 10 accounts I have chosen have millions of followers so someone else clearly agrees with me…

10. Sky Sports News – @SkySportsNews – 2,108,800 followers

The Sky Sports News account is definitely on the ball when it comes to reporting breaking news- including results and reports. I personally follow Sky Sports News because they are usually the best for breaking news stories.

Sky Sports also have their own dedicated accounts for various sports including @SkyFootball and @SkyCricket. This makes it easy to distinguish between what is necessary and what isn’t when using Sky as a source of information. The general news account however is probably better for both casual journalism and for your own personal use. Sky Sports News comes highly recommended.

Breaking Bad: 5 Potential Outcomes From To’hajiilee

20 Jul

Breaking Bad3

*The following pages contain spoilers – spoilers everywhere.*

If you’ve been watching Breaking Bad, you’re likely of the same opinion that ABC’s hit show is just as addictive as the methamphetamine cooked by its protagonist/antagonist Walter White.

And, if you’re up to speed with season 5, the (tragically) final series of the compelling crime drama, you will also likely agree that the most recent episode, ‘To’hajiilee’, is one of the best in the show’s long run.

To’hajiilee saw Walter’s mask slip as his alter-ego Heisenberg succumbed to a devious trap by the DEA after leading them directly to his buried drug money, but, despite being cuffed and bundled into the back of brother-in-law Hank’s police car, there would be a further, killer twist to come.

With the game looking over for Walt, Todd and his Nazi family rolled on into the desert armed to the teeth before a frenetic gun fight with Hank and partner Gomie faded to black without us knowing what the hell happened next.

If you reacted like we did, staring wide-eyed at the screen screaming at the top of your lungs “You can’t end the episode like that!” then you too probably have one or two questions about the episode’s mother-of-all-cliffhangers.

And here, we put the microscope over 5 Potential Outcomes From To’hajiilee.

The Walking Dead: 10 Reasons Why Season 4 Will Be The Best Yet

20 Jul

The Walking Dead

It’s a little over a month until America’s biggest show (if you believe the ratings) crashes back onto the big screen, and I personally can’t wait. When it wants to, the Walking Dead can thrill like little else on television. Yet pessimists will always point out the first part of that sentence – ‘when it wants to be.’

Honestly, I see where they’re coming from. The Walking Dead’s dramatic problems are well-documented and after the positively glacial second season, we were all ready to simply down tools and leave Rick Grimes and his procrastinating friends to their procrastinating ball games and inattentive children watching (‘what do you mean, Carl isn’t in the house) and shack up with more exciting shows. But then, a funny thing happened – season three turned out to be awesome, restoring our faith that a frustrating show that could be good actually managed live up to the expectation.

Now, I grant you that it isn’t perfect, and I’ll be making that abundantly clear throughout this article. Along with some awesome strengths there were some glaring flaws, and they need to be addressed. Yet nonetheless, I’m extremely excited about season four. If the third season proved nothing else, it’s that the writers are capable of learning from their mistakes and know how to build on their strengths (namely, massive zombie murder). So if they can repeat the trick, I’ve every confidence the fourth season will kick all the ass, resurrect it and kick it again. Hell, if you’re not convinced,just look at the goddamned trailer.

With this in mind, I’ve drawn up 10 reasons why I believe The Walking Dead Season Four will be the best season yet. Beware that a SPOILER WARNING is in effect. If you’re fine with that, or just love to have things spoiled for you, then please, read on.

Aaron Paul Keeps Breaking Hearts At The Emmy Awards

19 Jul

Oh man, Jesse Pinkman sure cleans up nicely, doesn’t he?

After seeing his horrific beaten face on last week’s episode of Breaking Bad, it’s SOOO good to see Aaron Paul‘s clean-shaven and beautiful smile at the Emmy Awards Sunday night.

Wearing a sharp navy suit with a black lapel and bowtie, Aaron and his gorgeous blushing bride, Lauren Parsekian, wearing a sleeveless champagne gown, looked like the evening’s Prom King and Queen.

Tonight, Aaron could be adding a third Emmy to his mantle for his role as Jesse, but he’s already given his blessing to his co-star Jonathan Banks who he’s up against in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama category.

We don’t know who we want to win! It’s a horrible game of Sophie’s Choice! Jesse vs. Mike! GAAAHH!

We only have two episodes left so grab a case of Schraderbrau, sit back, and enjoy the ride.

And, here’s a HUGE congrats to the entire BB cast and crew!

Christina Hendricks‘ ravishing rack literally CAN’T avoid being the center of attention — and that’s not a bad thing!

The Mad Men sex icon picked a bust-baring Christian Siriano mermaid gown for the Emmys on Sunday, and definitely made use of those notorious curves!!

She posed with hubby Geoffrey Arend on the red carpet, who complemented his leading lady in a black suit and printed tie.

The actress wore her red locks in a curly bouncing bob, then topped the look off with dangling earrings, an envelope clutch, and a whole bunch of bangles.

Bienvenido, baby!

Pen lope Cruz and Javier Bardem welcomed their second child on Monday, July 22, Hola reports.

Cruz, who is said to have delivered a daughter in Madrid, flew under the radar, giving birth the same day as Kate Middleton.

Details or official confirmation of the couple’s new addition – who joins big brother Leonardo, 2 – have not been released.

Following months of speculation that Cruz, 39, and Bardem, 44, were expanding their family further, PEOPLE confirmed in February that a second baby was on the way.

And when the actress was unable to attend Spain’s Goya Awards weeks later, her rep issued a statement that simultaneously explained her absence and confirmed her second pregnancy. “[Penelope is] tremendously happy and very excited,” her rep said at the time.
