The food will be prepared by 12 world-class chefs over numerous courses, with William Curley, winner of the best British chocolatier award in 2007-2009, serving delectable treats. Boris Johnson will kick off the evening and Jeremy Clarkson will be assisting the auction, with a range of City firms already signed up to host tables.And for those without a budding young journalist in the family, the charity auction will also feature a two-day stay at the Fairmont Monte Carlo during the Grand Prix and a holiday on Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island. The good news is you can still snap up one of the last tables for a £3,500 donation to our troops.

Drowning under the weight of the avid media consumer and ex-News of the World editor’s many regular deliveries, staff have sent out an explicit letter: “Andy Coulson has now left Downing Street”, it says bluntly. “I will inform you when to add his successor to your distribution list.” That’ll be one freshly ironed copy of City A.M. coming your way daily, Mr Oliver.AND THE WINNER ISWith just over three weeks to go until this year’s official Academy Awards, Nomura will be challenging its very own glitterati at an Oscars Quiz night tonight, in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust (TCT).More than 240 Nomura employees will walk the red carpet before being quizzed by BBC sports presenter Gabby Logan (pictured left), ably assisted by her very own in-house assistant – Nomura’s joint chief operator of wholesale, Paul Spanswick.The bank hopes to raise over £10,000 tonight towards the creation of a new day centre at University Hospital, London, bringing the firm’s total contribution to the TCT to over £800,000.Proof that even the embarrassment of not knowing any answers to the quiz can be a worthwhile endeavor. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItLuxury SUVs | Search AdsThese Cars Are So Loaded It’s Hard to Believe They’re So CheapLuxury SUVs | Search AdsBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldBlood Pressure Solution4 Worst Blood Pressure MedsBlood Pressure Solution Tags: NULLlast_img read more

In a game where England could never quite relax, it was not until Owen Farrell’s 72nd and 78th minute penalties that they were able to breathe a little easier. England had doused French fires early on with a controlled, opportunistic opening 20 minutes. After just 11 minutes Danny Care darted over the line from distance, and 10 minutes later, after some multiple phases deep in the French half, Dan Cole used his 19st frame to power over from close range, with a whiff of obstruction waved away by Nigel Owens.Over she goes: Big Dan Cole barrels over for England’s second tryWith Maxime Machenaud doing a passable impression of a dead-eye kicker for France, they were only 17-12 down at the break. In the second-half, England gave away a succession of penalties as France continued to keep within a converted score, even though Anthony Watson crossed for England’s third try after 57 minutes. Hartley left on a stretcher in the game’s final quarter after an accidental knee in the head, but even though France continued to prod, and probe, England were to dig in, show heart and expunge some of the hurt from the World Cup, only five months ago. It was a night every squad member will remember for quite some time.WHAT’S HOT…Selection. Selection. SelectionEddie Jones is paid the big bucks to make the big decisions and he made a decisive choice by switching scrum-halves for the Grand Slam encounter. His choice was vindicated after 11 minutes when Care showed his vision and speed to sprint in from 40 metres, after England had shown some early nerves. In the second-half, it was Youngs who came on to make the difference, as he put a delicious grubber in behind the French defence for Watson to score. Jones had after all, joked that he would come on to win the Grand Slam. Prophetic.Pure joy: Danny Care scampers over for the first try of the gameFrance find a kickerFrance have had a succession of kickers whom never exuded much confidence; namely Camille Lopez, Freddie Michalak, Remi Tales and latterly Jules Plisson. However, in Maxime Machenaud, they appear to have found a consistent kicker, in the mould of Morgan Parra and Dimitri Yachvili, two of the better French kickers of the last decade. The Racing Metro No 9 kicked seven penalties out of seven to keep the pressure on England. Bravo, Maxime!Everybody needs a Billy Vunipola dump truck in their teamBilly Vunipola has carried England, literally, all tournament, as well as a fair few opposition defenders. Eddie Jones has managed him well since becoming coach, showering him with praise, and the big Saracen has responded with a series of powerful performances. Against France, his muscular carries were instrumental to England getting front-foot ball – he carried second furthest for England with 70m – and his burst up the guts of the French defence led to Watson’s try. Another huge hit on Goujon in the first-half showed his defensive prowess. A surety to be battling it out with Taulupe Faletau for the Lions shirt next summer. Magnnificent.Go forward: Billy Vunipola was at his imperious best against FranceEngland supportThey have gone through the difficult transition from witnessing World Cup heartache to triumphant champs in the last five months, but England’s support never wavered. From the invasion by train, plane and car, the streets of St-Germain-des-Pres were awash with England fans dressed as knights, bowmen, warlocks and anything else medieval. It was all in good humour and Swing Low was heard loudly around Paris’ most fashionable quarter…and that was hours before the secured the Grand Slam. There will be a few sore heads in the morning but they will not care a jot.Backing their boys; England’s support was superb on a night of celebration in ParisWHAT’S NOT…France, improved, but still a blunt weapon in attackLes Bleus had a number of exciting runnners, with Scott Spedding and Virimi Vakatawa making a number of searing breaks from deep but when they got into the England half, they didn’t have the composure to make an unusualy frayed England defence pay. Guy Noves has said this first tournament is something of an experiment, but another fourth placed finish is not good enough for a country with their playing resources.England penalty countEddie Jones would have been pulling whatever hair he has left out after 50 minutes, with England’s discipline leaving a lot to be desired. Hartley, Itoje and Nowell were just a few to be pinged for various transgressions. That they conceded nearly twice as many penalties as France was telling, giving away 14 penalties to France’s eight. Against a better side, England could have been punished.STATISTICSEngland had the better of the possession with 60 per cent compared to France’s 40 per cent.

Mr. Wang enjoys his life, so he has a clear idea of what he wants from his home. For his family, only the best would do. Mr. Wang approached HAO Design with a blueprint for a beautiful future, and this got everyone’s eyes glistening with anticipation. The east-facing front building gives soothing warmth in the morning hours, while the rear building, which faces west, provides mellow, laid-back afternoons. The Wang family cares deeply for each other, so in order to complete their beautiful vision of a new life; they finally decided to build a bridge to connect them together. Save this picture!© Hey! CheeseTo make sure the expansiveness of the home does not add distance within the family, HAO Design chose to use the available space to its full. Walking into the main entrance, there is now a staircase leading to the second floor. The front building serves as an open-concept kitchen, while the rear building is a great library. Further extension establishes a perfect setting for the desired meeting point. A strategically placed window at the corner allows a glance –across the wooden bridge – to know that one’s comforting partner is there in the reading room. From the library, a look into the kitchen – from which culinary aromas entice – shows the beauty of everyday activity. Save this picture!DiagramUnique outdoor scenery, the semi open-air glass eaves, and retro siding all contribute to transform the bridge into a Southern garden during the day, where its dancing foliage transports the beholder into another place and time. At dusk, as the sconces light up, a Save this picture!© Hey! CheeseEuropean country atmosphere begins to emerge. While doing volunteer medical work in Africa, Mr. Wang was given a variety of folk collectibles. They now adorn this lovely, quiet vista and enrich it with unspeakable meaning. The roomy, open-concept kitchen has a generously-sized island. This gives Mrs. Wang, an expert cook, easy access to her favorite foods and tastes. At the end of the long corridor, the “palace of wisdom” hides behind a half-closed glass door, and the red- brick arch echoes the preceding bridge. Arriving at the fifth floor, one is greeted with a green tea-colored sliding door that opens to a Japanese-style living room. Thus, in a departure from convention, meeting places have been conceived for every floor. The semi open-air scheme results in superb daylighting for the inter-building bridge, merging seamlessly with an inviting outdoor cooking area. Along one side is a painting studio, permeated with a deeply artistic atmosphere, where this gifted family can unleash their inner creativity. Save this picture!© Hey! CheeseIf communal space adds a sense of warmth and communication, then with a closed door, individual rooms become places for time alone. The older son’s bedroom, featuring grey-green walls and a wall-sized wardrobe in the style of American lockers, reflects the sunny disposition of a healthy athlete; whereas the individuality of the younger son is sketched out with the industrial-style ceiling light installed above the head of the bed – a symbol of a bold, new generation. In the master bedroom, instead of a bed for two, two single-sized beds have been chosen, as they more aptly complement Mr. and Mrs. Wang’s routine. The vibrantly colored decorative pillows can be freely mixed and matched according to the spirit of the season, while connecting couches on each side offer personal reading zones. Since the Wang family cherishes their memories, aged photos and paintings fondly accumulated over the years allow those old stories to converse with their new surroundings, and help precious mementos find a new home. Save this picture!© Hey!

Parents decorate doors for high school seniors missing graduation amid pandemic

first_imgDarla Pool (NEW YORK) — Families are decorating their porches and doors to celebrate the high school seniors who are missing graduation, prom and other milestone events as a result of stay-at-home orders amid the novel coronavirus outbreak.Darla Pool, a mom of two from Fresno, California, borrowed the idea from other parents on Facebook and encouraged fellow community members to do the same. Dozens of doorways are now decorated as Central High School East is closed until further notice.“[My daughter], she’s devastated,” Pool told ABC News’ Good Morning America, of her 17-year-old, Katelyn Pool. “They’re getting ready for this new chapter and some of them, they might not see each other again.”“I thought, ‘What a great way to give seniors the recognition they deserve?’” she said.Doors across Fresno are now accessorized with athletic jerseys, instruments, cheer poms, academic awards, medals and senior portraits.Senior Miranda Jones told GMA she’s sad she won’t be able to close out her final high school year with friends.“If I would’ve known March 13 was the last day of school, I would’ve taken pictures and hugged everyone a little tighter,” she said. “Decorating our doors was a way to connect all of us together, and to remind everyone that we are all in this together.”Pool said she’s collecting photos of doors to incorporate into a digital album for families.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
