Change color, cover yourself with sand or blend in with the surroundings, the art of camouflage has no limits, and there are already many videos and images that show it to us. Although at first glance it seems easy to identify it, it is not at allThe insect in question is called the stink bug A great example of this can be seen in the video uploaded by photographer David Weiller.

Bolt to run at London Diamond League LONDON (AP): Usain Bolt said he will run at the London Diamond League meeting in July, weeks before he defends his Olympic titles in Rio de Janeiro. Bolt will run on July 22-23 at the Olympic Stadium, the venue where he won 100, 200 and 4×100-metre gold at the London Games. The Rio Olympics run from August 5-21, with track and field scheduled for August 12-19. Bolt said he is competing in London because “there are a lot of Jamaicans living in the UK and I always get great support. It is like my home away from home.” Bolt took part in the event this year, winning the 100m. He then won another sprint triple at the World Championships in Beijing in August. Gayle plans Test return in 2016 MELBOURNE, Australia (AP): Former West Indies captain Chris Gayle hopes to return to Test cricket next year after a two-year absence. The 36-year-old Gayle told reporters yesterday in Australia, where he is playing in the Twenty20 Big Bash League, that he hopes to be injury-free and able to bolster a struggling West Indies line-up in 2016. He said a back injury had prevented him playing for the West Indies who were mauled by Australia in a Test in Hobart last week, though he continues to play in lucrative Twenty 20 competitions. Gayle said “there’s no way I could have actually been part of that Test team, I’m just coming back from injury. Next year, hopefully, Test cricket is on the agenda.” Australia to add first-class day-night matches MELBOURNE, Australia (AP): Cricket Australia is continuing its push for more day-night Test cricket, scheduling first-class matches under lights at three venues early next year. Australia beat New Zealand last month in the first ever Test match played under lights and with a pink ball, at the Adelaide Oval. Sheffield Shield matches at Adelaide, the Gabba in Brisbane and the WACA ground in Perth will be played under lights in the round starting February 14 to continue refining the equipment.
A4doe: I was surprised to find later that they told people that my arrest was based on acting unruly in front of the President’s house.”-Threatens to sue police officers who assaulted himA4doe, the producer behind the hit protest song ‘Bring Back Our Container,’ has denied police report that he was arrested for exhibiting unruly behavior in front of the President George Weah’s residence.In an exclusive interview with the Daily Observer, A4doe said the Liberia National Police (LNP) Zone 8 police report was fabricated and intended to shield the public about what exactly happened.“The police report is totally made up. The first thing, they lied by saying the arrest was made in front of the President’s house, when it was not. They arrested me at the President’s house junction which is far away from the actual house.“I’m still trying to understand why I was arrested when I did nothing wrong. Kpanto and I, the other guy who raps on the song, were heading towards my house when the police assigned at President’s house junction stopped the bike we were on for what they claimed was a violation.“After the bike rider was arrested, I decided to appeal for his release and that’s how one of the police officers asked me to identify myself. I told him I’m a musician, the producer of the song about the alleged missing money,” A4doe explained his nightmare.The rapper and producer added immediately after his introduction, one of the police officers began insulting him for making the song, something which he told the officer was unnecessary and unprofessional.A4doe also added when the insult intensified, he took his phone and started to record the situation—a move that angered the police officers on guard that night and resulted in the tussle over the phone and his forceful arrest.“When I refused to give the phone in order for them to delete the video, the police officer who started the insult ran to me and started to squeeze my hand to get the phone but he was unable.“Since the pains were becoming unbearable, I give the phone to Kpanto to run with it. Unfortunate they were able to get hold of the phone after it dropped from the artist while they were chasing after him. They deleted the video; however, since I was online, the video was not completely deleted,” A4doe added.After deleting the video, the police officers decided to arrest me for trying to record them and took me to the police station and place me behind bars.According to A4doe, after his release early Sunday morning, after the arrest which took place around 11:30 pm the previous night, the police were unable to give him a charge sheet.The rapper said: “All they told me was to get out and that they don’t have any charge sheet for me. I was surprised to find later that they told people that my arrest was based on acting unruly in front of the President’s house.”Meanwhile, A4doe has threatened to sue the two police officers who assaulted him during his arrest, which has resulted into body pains.“I’m going to sue them for not only hurting my body but violating my civil right. The way they handled me was embarrassing and humiliating. I’m of the strongest conviction this was a planned thing by the officers and intended to disgrace me. The police attitude toward me is unacceptable and I know the President is not aware of this,” he said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

PHOTO/FIFAMoscow, Russia, Jun 25- Spain and Portugal reached the World Cup last 16 on Monday on a dramatic evening dominated by VAR decisions.Spain drew 2-2 with Morocco to top Group B thanks to a late Iago Aspas equaliser that was referred to the video assistant referee and Iran held Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal to a 1-1 draw. Fernando Hierro’s Spain, the 2010 world champions, will play Russia in the next round in Moscow on Sunday while European champions Portugal face Uruguay in Sochi the previous day.In Kaliningrad, Aspas scored a VAR-assisted equaliser in injury time as Spain scrambled a 2-2 draw with Morocco in a dramatic finale to their Group B campaign.Aspas’s winner, initially disallowed but awarded after intervention from the Video Assistant Referee, saw Spain stumble into the last 16 as group winners.Spain Captain Sergio ramos celebrates with Iago Aspas after his late equalizer against Morocco. PHOTO/FIFAThe Spaniards will now face World Cup hosts Russia in the second round after Portugal were held to a 1-1 draw by Iran in the night’s other game.Spain survived a real scare from a spirited Morocco side who had been leading 2-1 when the 90th minute began.Aspas’ clever flick from a wide free kick was initially adjudged by the assistant referee to have been offside.But after intervention from VAR it was given as a goal, much to the consternation of the Moroccan players and substitutes, some of whom stormed the pitch in protest.Morocco coach Herve Renard said before the game his team, the first to be eliminated this tournament, had been victim to “total injustice” in their opening 1-0 losses.The North Africans, who had yet to score a point or even a goal before Monday, started brightly, compact without the ball and breaking at speed.Morocco took the lead on 14 minutes when Boutaib took advantage of a horrible mix-up between Sergio Ramos and Andres Iniesta to race through and slide the ball calmly through David De Gea’s legs.Spain were level five minutes later when some crisp passing sent Iniesta free inside Morocco’s box. He cut back with the outside of his right boot to Isco, who fired into the roof of Monir El-Kajoui’s net from six yards.The Real Madrid playmaker was at the heart of every Spain attack, caressing clever passes to teammates and weaving past wrong-footed defenders.They weren’t complaining minutes later, however, when substitute Youssef En-Nesyri headed home the corner that followed to the rapture of the Moroccan supporters.Boutaib missed a glorious chance to restore the advantage when he found Spain’s centre backs sleeping off a quick throw only to fluff the one-on-one with De Gea.But La Roja should have gone in ahead at half-time, with Iniesta’s square pass missing Diego Costa’s outstretched right boot by millimetres from point blank.Morocco sat back in the second period and invited Spain to try to break them down.When they regained possession they broke with pace and purpose, and nearly took the lead after 55 minutes when Noureddine Amrabat’s right-foot scorcher from distance cannoned off the crossbar.Isco’s header on the hour mark forced a goal-line clearance from Ghanem Saiss, chosen by Renard to start over captain Mehdi Benatia.Morocco were aggrieved not to be awarded a penalty 10 minutes from time when the ball struck Pique’s fist in the area.They weren’t complaining minutes later, however, when substitute Youssef En-Nesyri headed home the corner that followed to the rapture of the Moroccan supporters.But Aspas’ late equaliser took some of the gloss of what had been a spirited and well-drilled performance.-Portugal scrap drawCristiano Ronaldo reacts after missing his penalty against Iran.

PHOTO/FIFAJoao Mario should have put Portugal in front after a defensive mix-up between Saeid Ezatolahi and Beiranvand, but the Inter Milan midfielder blazed over.Iran’s first genuine sight of goal came on 34 minutes when Ezatolahi directed a firm header from a free-kick straight into the grateful hands of Rui Patricio.Quaresma fired Portugal ahead just before the interval when he exchanged passes with Adrien Silva before bending home in style from the edge of the area with the outside of his right foot.Ronaldo had the chance to double the lead five minutes into the second half after he was upended by Ezatolahi, with a spot-kick awarded following consultation with the video assistant referee (VAR).But the Portugal captain was denied by Beiranvand who dived to his left to smother Ronaldo’s attempt.Iran coach Carlos Queiroz remonstrated angrily with the officials as Saman Ghoddos appeared to be impeded by William Carvalho inside the area.The referee consults the VAR during teh Portugal v Iran game. PHOTO/FIFAThere was no VAR intervention on that occasion, but referee Enrique Caceres trotted over to the pitchside monitor after an altercation between Ronaldo and Morteza Pouraliganji.Ronaldo caught the Iran defender with a forearm across the face, Pouraliganji falling to the ground in a heap as the Portugal forward ultimately escaped with a yellow card.Iran earned a stoppage-time penalty, again with the help of VAR, when Sardar Azmoun’s header struck the arm of Cedric after the pair contested a deep cross.Substitute Ansarifard buried his effort into the roof of the net to set up a dramatic finish.Mehdi Taremi could have snatched a stunning winner after a deflected shot rolled into his path, but he fired into the side netting as Iran fell agonisingly short.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)

The best i have found, really strong and don’t slide at all when closed. Toddler size so a tiny bit smaller than expected, but great quality. These ‘snap’ well so should be secure and not fall out of children’s hair. These are slightly smaller than normal hair clips but that just means they would be ideal for younger girls or would not be as prominent in adult hair styles where they may be clipped behind the hair. Extremely good value & the quality is fine. Extremely good value & the quality is fine. They get lost before they have a chance to break. I bought these for my daughter to wear to nursery as there is no point putting expensive clips in her hair as often they don’t come home. They work fine but they discolour quite quickly.
