Here’s the scenario: I recorded a video but no photos from my son’s first ski race last weekend. My video footage tuned out to be less than compelling, but I wanted to share something from the big event on Instagram for his grandparents and my tens of followers.  Without any photos, what was I to do? With a little trial and error, I found a good way to post a still frame from the video I captured. My first thought was to capture a screenshot of my video as it…

Real Sociedad v Barcelona: La Liga – as it happened

Thanks for joining me on what has been an exciting night. Barcelona looked all at sea in the opening 45 minutes but in the wind and the rain they recovered to show why they are running away with the league and maintained their unbeaten record. Anyway, until we meet again. Mark emails to say it’s the best game he’s seen this season. Was it? The Sevilla derby wasn’t too bad last week… What a game that was! Real Sociedad looked like they were going to get a much-deserved win as…

The Debate Is Hot: Do Lobsters Feel Pain?

This week, the Swiss Federal Council banned cooks from placing live lobsters in boiling water, and as of March 1, all lobsters must first be knocked unconscious by electric shock or “mechanical destruction” of the brain.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp sends sly dig at Philippe Coutinho after Man City win
