  • Cristiano Ronaldo: Is the Real Madrid forward set to leave Spain?

    Cristiano Ronaldo signed a new five-year deal with Real Madrid in November that helped him become the best-paid athlete in the world.

    But now a source close to the player now says he "doesn't want to stay in Spain" because he is "upset" after being accused of tax fraud in the country.

    Ronaldo, 32, joined Madrid from Manchester United for a then world-record £80million in 2009.

    The Portugal legend has scored a club-record 406 goals in his 394 appearances for Real.

    Only two weeks ago, he helped Zinedine Zidane's side win a 12th European Cup with two goals in a 4-1 victory over Juventus in the Champions League final in Cardiff.

    Will that turn out to be his last appearance for Los Merengues? Where could he go? And what would Madrid do without him?

    Maybe he's just upset. Maybe it is something he said in a moment when he's really angry. We don't know yet. He's been happy here, he helped us to win three Champions Leagues over the past four years, so I hope he will stay.

    But, if he's made his mind up, I don't think it's going to be easy to change. He's very strong-minded and clear in what he wants. If he leaves I don't see him in a place like China or the Middle East. He will be always playing for a big club and trying to get more titles and more personal awards.

    He's a fighter and he's in good shape. He can play again for the best club and I think that club now is Real Madrid. I can't tell you what he's doing but I hope he will stay, I'm sure he'll stay.

  • Do You Have Lower Back Dimples? Then You Should Find Out What They Really Mean

    Men have always been allowed to set the standard of what’s hot and what’s not when it comes to a woman’s sex appeal. These lower back dimples, two concave marks located directly above the buttocks, aren’t found on everyone. But when you see them, here’s what it means.

    1. Michelangelo 

    You must be wondering what Michelangelo has to do with all this. Well, he was the first to have been heard quoting, about the lower back dimples.

    2. Christened

    Michelangelo christened them dimples of ‘Venus’ when he spotted them on women.

    3. The Two Holes

    The two holes at the lower back that can be seen with the naked eyes pretend to be like circles, that’s why they are called holes. This can be seen in both men and women. In women, they are called Venus holes and in men, they are called Apollo holes.

    4. Is it Good?

    They are thought to be aesthetically pleasing, but they are also rumored to have some benefits in other ways too.

    5. Medically

    According to official medical experts, they are ‘created by a short ligament stretching between the spine and the skin.’

  • The most expensive cities in the world 2017

    This is one time where most Americans don’t want to be No. 1.

    The Economist Intelligence Unit, the research and analysis division of The Economist Group this week ranked the world’s priciest cities. Of the 10 most expensive cities, five are in Asia. Singapore came out at No. 1, followed by Hong Kong. The third-most expensive city is Zurich, Switzerland, the city with the highest cost of living in Europe. Tokyo and Osaka, both in Japan, are fourth and fifth, followed by Seoul, South Korea. Geneva, Switzerland, and Paris tied for seventh, and New York and Copenhagen tied at No. 9.

    The study rated the cities according to how expensive it is to buy basic items there at supermarkets, mid-priced stores and specialty outlets, using the price of food, drinks, clothing, recreation and entertainment and the cost of buying and running a car (including the cost of gasoline).

    It also includes recurring expenses, including the cost of renting a home, utility bills, private schools and domestic help. It takes into account the relative strength of each of the countries’ respective currencies. A slight weakening of the U.S. dollar, for instance, contributed to New York’s relatively low ranking and kept many other pricey U.S. cities off the list.
