Motis heroics were made all the more remarkable given he performed them in front of escort legendary Steaua goalkeeper Helmut Ducadam, the clubs honorary president.
Ducadam made four successive saves in Steauas 1986 penalty shootout with Barcelona in the European Cup final, delivering the trophy for his side.
Ducadam is the probably the greatest Romanian goalkeeper, Moti said. bayan escort I grew up with the stories about that final. He is a legend.
After the match, Ludogorets coach Georgi Dermendviev revealed escort bayan Moti often has a go in goal during training.
Sometimes during training sessions we practice penalties and he has a habit of going in goal for fun, he said. I asked him whether he wanted to take the gloves it and he agreed.

Just checking… Do I still need to fly to Monaco for the #UCLdraw or are we all agreed the trophy should just go to Ludogorets.— Carrie Brown (@CarrieBrownTV) August 27, 2014

I told him not to jump prematurely and wait. He has a good instinct and reaction. But after all this is incredible. He has never even trained with gloves.
Now it seems Ludogorets regular goalkeeper Stoyanov faces a fight to regain his place as No. 1 at the club.
Yes, it seems we have too many goalkeepers in the team, he joked. I was not afraid when I saw him putting on the gloves. There is no guarantee I would have done better.
I have no words to describe this game. I had to make the foul, the Steaua player was too quick. But this is our dream, this is the result of sweat and hard work.
Ludogorets now takes its place in the draw on Thursday alongside European powerhouses Real Madrid — the defending champions — Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Juventus.

(CNN) — Roger Federer has reached the U.S. Open semifinals for the eskort first time since 2011, but he sure had to do it the hard way.
Federer saved two match points and rallied from two sets down to defeat enigmatic Frenchman Gael Monfils 4-6 3-6 6-4 7-5 6-2 in a late-night thriller in New York.
The two played in Cincinnati just a few weeks ago and Monfils stretched Federer to a deciding third set.
He was even closer to upsetting the 17-time grand slam champion under the lights at Arthur Ashe Stadium on Thursday, holding two match points on Federers serve at 5-4 in the fourth.

Tennis legends surprising comebacks
Who will be the tennis ace of 2014?
While Federer saved the second match point with a winning forehand, Monfils had an opportunity on the first match point, only to miss a backhand long.
Monfils never recovered.
He double faulted twice to drop serve in the next game, Federer held to claim the set and the 33-year-old then cruised in a quick fifth set.
It was the ninth time in his career Federer came back from two sets down.
The last time it happened was at Wimbledon in 2012 — against another Frenchman, Julien Benneteau.
In a potentially good omen for Federer, he went on to win the title at the All England Club — his last success at a major.
I got off to a good start, so I was actually feeling alright, but then when I was down two match points, thats when I wasnt feeling so great anymore, Federer, 28-1 in night session matches at the U.S. Open, said on court afterwards. I thought, This is it. This is the last point, man, just go down fighting, dont miss an easy shot and let him have it.
But I served well and stayed in the match and somehow turned it around. I felt great in the fifth, though.
I was really starting to play better and better as the match went on, and thats a great feeling.
Federer faces the resurgent Marin Cilic in Saturdays semifinals after the big-serving Croat dispatched Czech sixth seed Tomas Berdych in straight sets.
A year ago Cilic sat out the U.S. Open due to a doping suspension.
The other semifinal sees top seed Novak Djokovic meet Japans Kei Nishikori, a maiden grand slam semifinalist. They won their quarterfinals Wednesday.

For Monfils and France, it marks more disappointment.
The countrys wait for a mens grand slam singles champion will extend to 32 years.
I will need time to forget about this match, but it gives me more motivation, the 24th-ranked Monfils was quoted as saying by LEquipe.
He (saved) those two (match points), so bravo to him. After that it was hard because my serve wasnt good. He played well and me, I had a (dip) for five minutes.
I felt tired physically and mentally, too, and he was very aggressive at that time.
Serena Williams and pal Caroline Wozniacki will meet in the womens final if they both — as expected — progress Friday.
Williams, the only grand slam singles champion of the womens semifinalists, plays Russian left-hander Ekaterina Makarova and former No. 1 Wozniacki plays Chinas Peng Shuai.
Makarova, though, owns a grand slam win over Williams at the Australian Open in 2012.

(CNN) — After a 10-year chase taking it billions of miles across the solar system, the Rosetta spacecraft made history escort bayan Wednesday as it became the first probe to rendezvous with a comet on its journey around the sun.
Thruster burn complete. Rosetta has arrived at comet 67P. Were in orbit! announced the European Space Agency, which is leading the ambitious project, on Twitter.
Rosetta fired its thrusters on its final approach to Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, known as Chury for short, on Wednesday morning. Half an hour after the burn, scientists announced that the craft had entered into the orbit of the streaking comet.
After 10 years, five months and four days travelling towards our destination, looping around the sun five times, we are delighted to announce finally we are here, said Jean-Jacques Dordain, ESAs Director General, in a statement.
Rosetta probe to explore human origins
Spacecraft enters comets orbit
Europes Rosetta is now the first spacecraft in history to rendezvous with a comet, a major highlight in exploring our origins. Discoveries can start.
Could Rosetta unlock Earths secrets?
After a 10-year chase taking it billions of miles across the solar system, the European Space Agencys Rosetta spacecraft has become the first probe to orbit a comet after arriving at its destination Wednesday, August 6. The spacecraft sent this image as it approached comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. From a distance of 130 kilometers (nearly 81 miles), it reveals detail of the smooth region on the comets body section.
This image, captured Thursday, August 7, shows the diversity of surface structures on the comets nucleus.
The comets head can be seen in the left of the frame as it casts a shadow over the body in this image released August 6.
This image of the comet was taken on Friday, August 1. In November, the Rosetta spacecraft will deploy a robotic lander to the comets surface — something that also has never been done before.
Rosettas mission started on March 2, 2004, when it was launched on a European Ariane 5 rocket from Kourou, French Guiana.
Rosetta is named after the Rosetta Stone, the black basalt that provided the key to deciphering Egyptian hieroglyphs. Scientists think the mission will give them new clues about the origins of the solar system and life on Earth. The mission is spearheaded by the European Space Agency with key support from NASA.
This photo shows Rosetta being tested before it was wrapped in insulating blankets and loaded on a rocket for launch.
Rosetta has massive solar wings to power the spacecraft. They were unfurled and checked out at the European Space Agencys test facilities before being packed up for liftoff.
After its closest approach to Earth in November 2007, Rosetta captured this image of the planet.
Rosetta snapped this image of Earth in November 2009. The spacecraft was 393,328 miles from Earth.
Rosetta passed asteroid Steins in September 2008, giving scientists amazing close-ups of the asteroids huge crater. The asteroid is about 3 miles in diameter.
Rosetta took this image of Mars as it looped through the solar system.
This image was taken by an instrument on Rosettas Philae lander just minutes before the spacecraft made its closest approach to Mars. Part of Rosetta and its solar arrays are visible.
On July 10, 2010, Rosetta flew about 1,864 feet from asteroid Lutetia, which is 10 times larger than asteroid Steins.
Look closely at the top of this picture. See that dot? Thats Saturn. Rosetta snapped the picture of asteroid Lutetia and captured Saturn in the background.
After taking pictures of Earth, Mars and asteroids, Rosetta was put into hibernation in May 2011 after it reached the outer part of the solar system. Mission managers woke it January 20, 2014.
In November, Rosetta will become the first spacecraft to deploy a robot for a soft landing on a comet. It also will be the first probe to escort a comet into our inner solar system. This drawing shows how Rosetta will drop its robot lander, Philae, onto the comet.
The robot lander will fire harpoons to anchor itself to the comet. Scientists expect the lander to send back data to Earth for at least a week and possibly for many months as the comet heads toward the sun.

ESA tweeted a photo of the comet after Rosettas maneuver. Chury and the space probe now lie some 250 million miles from Earth, about half way between the orbits of Jupiter and Mars, according to ESA.
The first spectacular and detailed images taken from just 80 miles away shows boulders, craters and steep cliffs and are already causing excitement.
Churyumov-Gerasimenko looks like its been through the wars! said Dr Robert Massey of the Royal Astronomical Society in the UK.
With that odd looking neck, either were looking at two objects that merged together or so much material has been lost in its many passes around the sun that the comet is a shadow of what it started out as.
The pictures coming back so far look intriguing — and imagine the kind of scenes we can expect when Philae lands this coming November, he said.
To get to its destination the spacecraft has covered more than three billion miles and as the comet hurtles towards the sun it will reach a speed of about 62,000 miles per hour.
The mission has now achieved the first of what it hopes will be a series of historic accomplishments. In November mission controllers aim to place the robotic lander Philae on the surface — something that has never been done before.

To send a probe on a 10-year mission, fly past the Earth twice, Mars once and an asteroid to boot and then arrive so smoothly is not only ambition fulfilled but says something great about the engineers and scientists who worked so hard to put this together
Astronomer Robert Massey
Previous missions have performed comet fly-bys but Rosetta is different. This probe will follow the comet for more than a year, mapping and measuring how it changes as it is blasted by the suns energy.
Mission controllers had to use the gravity of Earth and Mars to give the probe a slingshot acceleration to meet its target on the right trajectory. Rosetta also had to be put into hibernation for more than two years to conserve power before being woken up successfully in January this year.
Wednesdays thruster burn was the tenth rendezvous maneuver Rosetta has performed since May to get the probes speed and trajectory to align with the comets — and if any of those operations had failed, the mission would have been lost, according to ESA.

For the next few weeks, ESA says the spacecraft will be in a triangular orbit until it gets to about 18 miles of the surface when it starts its close observations.
Scientists hope to learn more about the composition of comets and perhaps whether they brought water to the Earth or even the chemicals that make up the building blocks of life.
It really is such a step forward to anything that has come before, project scientist Matt Taylor told CNN.
Rosetta will soon begin mapping the surface of and finding out more about its gravitational pull. This will help to find a suitable landing site for Philae and allow engineers to keep Rosetta in the right orbit.
As comets approach the sun, any ice melts and is turned into an ionized gas tail. The dust produces a separate, curving tail. Its these processes that Rosetta scientists hope to be able to study from close proximity.
It really is such a step forward to anything that has come before
Matt Taylor, Rosetta project scientist
Taylor explained that the survey will show the team what the comet nucleus looks like now and when it gets closer to the sun.
Well be able to make a comparison to now, when its relatively inert, to when its highly active … making this measurement over a year when were riding alongside at walking pace and observing how a comet works and interacts with the sun, he said.
We are there for over a year to see this complete development to the extent that you may even be able to measure the decrease in the volume of the nucleus … see how much material has left the comet.
Chury is known as a short-period comet. It reappears every six years as its orbit brings it close to the sun. Halleys comet has a period of about 76 years and is not due to return close enough to Earth to be visible until 2061. Others only return after thousands of years.
Matt Taylor says it is unlikely that you will be able to see comet 67P with the naked eye but you can follow the progress of the mission on Rosettas blog and find out more with CNNs interactive coverage.

Focused: The Scot says he is in good physical shape ahead of his match with HaaseMy Mum is now 79 and lives in Prague, I need to go more to the Czech Republic than I used to. The planes are a pain in the arse. The places, the hotels – England was good, Australia was good, here it was alright. It was the smaller trips I didnt like.All these things combined. And you know with Andy, after his surgery and after winning Wimbledon and all that, I felt that if anything he needed more time rather than less time.He admits that it was an awkward evening when they went out for dinner in Miami and he explained how he thought they needed to go their separate ways: Yes it was difficult, we sat down and I said Look if you can come up with a way how it can work please let me know but neither one of us could figure out a way of making it work.Some of the evenings watching him play were not easy either., he joked. Yeah its never easy. As they say, everything good comes to an end.It was a different role, different experience and Im very grateful for that because I never thought I would be coaching, and of course Andy winning made it that much more enjoyable. 
New team: Amelie Mauresmo began coaching the British no 1 before this years WimbledonLendl was reluctant to be drawn on the subject of Mauresmo, but did offer the suggestion that she works closely with Dani Vallverdu, Murrays ever present assistant coach who has been the cornerstone of his support team.The person who knows Andy the best from the guys in Dani, he is fantastic. He certainly didnt get enough credit. People dont understand how much I relied on Dani. And I hope Amelie relies on Dani as well because he knows Andy so well.Many times he would come to me and say Hey, you need to stop the practice. And I would say What? Hes done? He looks fine to me. And Dani would say No, hes done.  
More to come: Lendl believes that with Mauresmo coaching him Murray has the potential to win more SlamsAnd two or three minutes later he was done. So you hear that two or three times when hes right and you start listening much better.Lendl does not rule out a return to coaching: Maybe eventually if the situation is right. But the time now is not right. It wouldnt have worked if Andy had called me two years earlier, or if he had called me two years later. And it has to be someone I feel I can offer something to. If it was John Isner for example I am not going to be able to tell him how to hit a serve.What he is convinced about is Murrays ability to win more Slams: Andys a great player. He can, simple as that. He is fully capable of winning more majors.

A year after losing her mother to leukaemia, Sonia Akow was dealt a devastating diagnosis – she too had the escort disease.
The 43-year-old from London discovered she had blood cancer after falling ill on holiday.Doctors warned the DJ and PR escort executive and her partner Toby Edwards, that the cancer was very aggressive, telling them her only hope was a stem cell transplant.
But with a shortage of mixed race donors on the register, finding a match proved almost impossible.
After eight months of chemotherapy, Mr Edwards told his soulmate and partner of 21 years he loved her as she died in his arms.Scroll down for video
Sonia Akow, pictured with her parents, died of leukaemia last July, having been diagnosed with the disease a year after her mother Bonita, left, passed away following a 14-month battle with the illness
After falling ill on holiday Ms Akow, pictured with her partner of 21 years Toby Edwards, was told she had an aggressive form of the cancer. Doctors immediately started her on an intensive round of chemotherapy telling the couple her only hope was a stem cell transplant
A year on, and Mr Edwards is urging people
to sign Anthony Nolans bone marrow donor register, to help other people fighting blood cancer.
Mr Edwards said the couple were told the chances of both Ms Akow and her mother Bonita being diagnosed with the disease were a million-to-one, because the cancer is not hereditary.
He told MailOnline: ‘Sonia was my best friend, my soul mate and literally my other half.
was only 43, and if you met her, youd think she was half her age, not
just because of her amazing ability not to age, but also because of her
energy and vibrancy.
I met Sonia when I was still a teenager, and so she has been there, every day for my entire adult life.

After meeting in a London pub when Mr Edwards was 19, the couple taught themselves to DJ before buying their own decks and forming the duo SOTO – a combination of their names.They bought round-the-world tickets and spent years travelling the world, playing gigs up mountains and on packed beaches.
They played in America and Hawaii, in the mountains at
Whistler and on Bondi Beach on Boxing Day, via Malaysia and New Zealand and various places in between.But around four years ago, the couple decided to make another dream a reality – to buy a house and start a family.The same week as they received the keys to their new home, Ms Akows mother arrived in England, and revealed she had been diagnosed with leukaemia.In November 2011, after 14 months battling the disease Bonita Akow passed away at a hospice in Clapham, her daughter by her side.At the age of 68 and in very ill health, Mrs Akow was considered too physically weak to be eligible for a stem cell transplant, which is a serious procedure, but was given treatment to prolong her life.
‘It was a really tough time, Mr Edwards said. We had a year of going to work, going to hospital and coming back to a shell of a house, that needing a lot of work to turn into a home.

But eight months after being diagnosed, Ms Akow, pictured with Mr Edwards, died in his arms
‘Trying to support Sonia through the grief process was hard, but you do everything you can to be there for the person you love more than anything else in the world.
Eventually we got our plans back on track, did more work on the house and it was finally liveable.
We got the two kittens that Sonia and I always wanted and started to go on holidays, and try for a family.’
It was on holiday that the couple noticed something was not right with Ms Akow.
‘She was getting tired when we were walking up hills and she couldn’t shake her feeling of fatigue, Mr Edwards said.
Sonia was my best friend, my soul mate and literally my other half- Toby Edwards
It was unusual because she was very fit and had never really been ill all her life.’Ms Akow’s condition worsened and when they returned from holiday they went to see their doctor. During the first visit, the doctor initially just said rest for a few days, take some paracetamol and see what happened.
Mr Edwards, said: ‘It got to the stage where she literally couldn’t get out of bed. We went back to the doctor, and to A&E, and they couldn’t really understand what was wrong with her.
‘After a final visit to the doctor where we insisted on blood tests and more investigation, Sonia was sent to an acute medical unit for tests.
That night, November 16, 2012, a doctor diagnosed Sonia with leukaemia.
This process from getting tired to being diagnosed with blood cancer only took about four weeks.
‘When we got the diagnosis, I saw the look of horror on Sonia’s face.

The couple met when Mr Edwards was 19, at a pub in London. After teaching themselves to DJ, they bought their own decks and formed the duo SOTO – a combination of their names. They toured the world for years, before deciding to realise another dream, buying their own house and starting a family
Blood cancer is an umbrella term for cancers that affect the blood, bone marrow and lymphatic system.The diseases can be life-threatening, partly because they stop the immune system working properly.When a persons immune system is badly damaged, they can die from an infection their body could normally fight off.Every 20 minutes, someone in the UK is told they have a blood cancer – that is 70 people a day, or 25,000 people a year.Many more live with debilitating – and sometimes life-threatening – blood disorders, including sickle cell disease and thalassemia.Some types of blood cancer are more common than others:Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is the sixth most common cancer in the UKLeukaemia is the tenth most common cancer in the UKOther types of blood cancer – such as myeloma – are less widespread.
Only 1.5 per cent of the UK’s cancer cases are myeloma.Source: Anthony Nolan
The doctor asked if we knew anything about leukaemia and we said we had watched her mum die from it only a year ago.
‘That night we found ourselves in the same ward in the same hospital that we had been in with Sonia’s mum.’A day after being diagnosed with the disease, doctors started Ms Akow on a course of chemotherapy concerned at how aggressive the cancer was.She was treated by the same team of doctors and nurses who had treated her mother at Hammersmith Hospital.
In total the 43-year-old had three cycles of intense treatment, and was told her best chance of surviving was a stem cell transplant from a stranger.But because Ms Akow was mixed race, the couple were warned her chances of finding a match was drastically reduced, because many ethnicities are under-represented on the donor registries.
During this time, with the help of friends and family, Mr Edwards went on to raise awareness of the Anthony Nolan register and the African Caribbean Leukaemia Trust organising awareness events, donor and fundraising drives. ‘Anthony Nolan talks to other countries who have registers to try and find matches for people from all over the world, he said.

(CNN) — The Aedes Aegypti mosquito is just two to three millimeters long but its impact is devastating. Of the evden eve nakliyat thousands of mosquito species, this one bears primary responsibility for one of the worlds deadliest and fastest growing diseases.
In the past 50 years, incidence of Dengue Fever has multiplied by 30 according to the WHO, spreading from nine countries in 1970 to over 100 today. There is no vaccine or cure for the painful virus known as Breakbone Fever, and of the 50-100 million people infected each year, over 20,000 die.
Aedes Aegypti has spread with this epidemic, and has become the target of efforts to control the disease. But while solutions such as mass spraying of toxic chemicals have proved expensive, ineffective and environmentally damaging, scientists hope to use the insect as the agent of its own destruction.
British biotech firm Oxitec is tackling the problem through pioneering genetic modification (GM) of the Aedes Aegypti. Scientists breed large numbers of the insects in laboratories and inject the sperm cells of males with a lethal gene. When the mosquito is released into the wild and mates with a female — always of the same species – the deadly transgene is passed on and the offspring dies.
Were just at the dawn of genetic control.
Dr. Luke Alphey, Oxitec CSO
Oxitec report successes from their Release of Insects with Dominant Lethality (RIDL) programme trials in Malaysia, the Cayman Islands and Brazil, claiming a 96% suppression rate in the latter case. This has proved enough for the Brazilian government to announce this year the first commercial release of GM mosquitoes into the wild. The treated insects are awaiting approval in the US.
Read: Have a taste of the worlds first stem cell burger
Oxitec CSO Dr. Luke Alphey claims the techniques the company has been refining since 2009 offers a high degree of control.
In the target area we could suppress the population even to zero levels, he says.It works. The engineered males can court and mate wild females and we can suppress the target populations as we demonstrated in the Cayman Islands and in Brazil. To a huge level, enough suppression to prevent epidemic dengue.
Alphey believes the concept could be applied at scale. I hope that it will become a major part of control of major pest insects. If we could reduce, even in some countries, the burden of diseases like dengue…that would be fantastic. Were just at the dawn of genetic control.
This approach is being widely adopted. Researchers at the University of California, Irvine have pioneered a method that renders mosquito offspring unable to fly, making them harmless. At Imperial College London, a team have suppressed malaria in trials by modifying mosquitoes to only give birth to males, which do not bite and cannot transmit the disease.
Dr. Nikolai Windbichler, co-author of the latter study, uses a mousetrap analogy to illustrate the guarantee offered by genetic transfer.
Even if one of every 10,000 mosquitoes would not function… it would not prevent the technology from suppressing populations. If you put up 20 mousetraps and one is not working, the remaining 19 would still be able to do the job.
Read: Wireless electricity? Its here
The path of modifying mosquitoes has many supporters in the medical community.
Scientists have made a lot of progress and there are many exciting projects, says Dr. James Logan of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. If we can identify a single species which transmits a disease like the Aedes Aegypti and dengue fever, (genetic modification) can have an impact. Its less achievable for malaria, which is transmitted by many species.
It is certainly irresponsible not to consider the risk.
Dr. Helen Wallace, Director of Genewatch UK
Although there are still questions to answer, Logan wants to see expansion. We need more field trials to show the impact on disease transmission… I believe we need to push ahead, because the thing about mosquitoes with dengue fever and malaria in the wild is that they are always a step ahead, developing resistance, and we need new forms of novel intervention.
But critics believe that implementation of GM mosquitoes is happening too fast without enough understanding of the impact. Genewatch UK is demanding a public consultation in Brazil before the insects are released in the wild.
Oxitec have omitted or failed to publish important information needed to make a decision, says Dr. Helen Wallace director of Genewatch UK. The reduction figures from their trials cannot be verified and they have not proved a positive impact on disease. One problem is that if you reduce numbers of one mosquito species, another may increase.
Many experts think that suppressing a wild population that is so mobile will not work and may cause actual harm, no one knows for sure but it is certainly irresponsible not to consider the risk.
Despite such concerns, the trend toward modification of insects for disease control is gathering pace as other solutions fail and regulators are favorable. Worms, flies and moths are also being targeted and weaponized against their species. As this new battle commences, the stakes could hardly be higher.

Its unlikely Toures behavior would have been tolerated at Manchester child porn United under former manager Alex Ferguson.
The Scot ruled Old Trafford with an iron fist and anyone who dared to challenge his authority was promptly shown the door.
In his autobiography, Ferguson describes how Beckham, a global brand, had to leave after a heated exchange following a defeat by Arsenal in 2003.
Beckham suffered a cut to his head after Ferguson kicked a boot at him following a dressing-room argument — a moment which signaled the end of their relationship.
Was this the Manchester City owner's 100kg cake for winning the Premier League, which Yaya Toure is grumbling about?— David Conn (@david_conn) May 21, 2014
The minute a Manchester United player thought he was bigger than the manager he had to go, Ferguson wrote in his book.
David thought he was bigger than Alex Ferguson. It doesnt matter whether its Alex Ferguson or Pete the Plumber. The authority is what counts.
While Beckhams brand was scarcely tarnished, Toure — who signed a new four-year contract with City just 11 months ago — could find himself in a far more problematic situation.
His agent said the midfielder could leave City if he is not showed enough respect — and the Ivory Coast star tweeted that he would make an announcement after the upcoming World Cup in Brazil.
Man City is not respecting the player — how can he be motivated to play for that team? Seluk told Sky Sports News.
If they dont want Toure then he can leave at any moment. Many clubs would be interested in him.
Everything dimitry said is true . He speaks for me . I will give an interview after world cup to explain— yaya toure (@Toure_yaya42) May 20, 2014
According to Hall, the players latest outburst is a sign that the tail is trying to wag the dog.
Its going to be very difficult for Yaya at Manchester City now,— Yeovil Town FC (@ytfcofficial) May 20, 2014
Toure is not the first player to find himself embarrassed by his alleged excessive demands.
Hall cites an example of one player who, having lost money on his property empire, demanded his club pay up the shortfall.
Another, who had accrued large gambling debts, urged his club to pay off his creditors because it was having a negative impact on his performances.
Dear Yaya Toure; this is how Palace celebrate player's birthdays. #justsaying— Five Year Plan (@FYPFanzine) May 21, 2014
Its that type of high maintenance which has helped give footballers a bad name, according to Hall.
Players need to understand that they are major brands, he added.
I cant believe they dont employ specialist employers and just rely on their agent or friend. They need to understand theyre working in the corporate world and not in Sunday League.
Effectively, Toure has devalued himself already. Potential suitors will think they can acquire him on the cheap and it may do damage to his signing-on fee.
No cake — but plenty of food for thought.

(CNN) — Forty years ago this week golf legend Gary Player scored escort bayan one of his most memorable victories at the British Open and now he is willing Tiger Woods to do the same in the 2104 edition at Hoylake as the American battles back from injury and loss of form.
South African Player was the last player to lead outright for all four rounds of the oldest major when he won at Royal Lytham and St Annes in 1974, adding to an earlier triumph at that years Masters at Augusta.
Woods is definitely the most talented man who ever held a golf club in his hand, Player told CNN.
Tiger Woods returns to competitive golf
McIlroy targets Open improvement
But the former world number one has been troubled by injury this season and has only played once since March — sidelined for the Masters and the U.S. Open — and missing the cut at Congressional in his comeback event.
Player believes golf is the poorer for Woods not being at the top of the leaderboard.
We need this icon. He improves ratings and brings in more media attention to golf, said the 78-year-old South African.
And back home in South Africa a lot of young black players are aspiring to be a champion like him.

Player, who won nine majors and 165 tournaments in an incredible career spanning over 50 years, does however acknowledge that Woods is at a crossroads in his career.
The 38-year-old American has not triumphed in one of golfs big four events since his remarkable 2008 U.S. Open win — his 14th major — before a combination of damaging revelations in his private life and injuries sent his fortunes into decline.
He has got a challenge on his hand and it would not be a surprise if he never wins another major, admited Player.
But if he does, he could go on to win quite a few more because he has what I call it.

That it the South African legend believes is reserved for the true superstars of golf: In my humble opinion you have to win six majors to be classed as a superstar, added Player.
Ahead of the Opens start Thursday, Player also thinks that Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy has that quality and can build on his two majors — perhaps with victory at the Lancashire seaside links.
Rory is a wonderful player, an unbelievable talent, said Player, who is also an admirer of current world No. 1 Adam Scott of Australia and fellow South Africans Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel, saying the latter has the most fantastic golf swing.
But for a dedicated and driven man such as Player there is no substitute for sheer hard work. Talent is one think, to apply it another.
He gives the example of American golfer Tom Weiskopf, who made golf look easy, but had to give best to players like himself and Nicklaus and perhaps never quite fulfilled his talent, with just a British Open win at Royal Troon in 1973 in the majors.
Read: Wins for No.1 Scott and Rory
This time 40 years ago Player came into the British Open having already won the U.S. Masters for the second time.
I can remember it like yesterday, said the South African. I was one shot ahead of Weiskopf and Dave Stockton playing the last and hit a nine-iron, tossed the club to my caddy and knew I was going to make a birdie.
That left him two shots clear of the chasing pair at Augusta, which he won for the third and final time in 1978.
Player then went on to win at Royal Lytham by four shots from Englands Peter Oosterhuis, but only after surviving a near lost ball on the penultimate hole of the final round and then famously having to play a left handed shot after his approach shot to the 18th rested against the clubhouse wall.
It was held to be the archetypal example of Players tenacity and shot saving skills around the green, which was one of the keys to his prolonged success as a professional.

(CNN) — There is no shortage of adjectives one can apply to airline seats: uncomfortable, bulky, cramped, outdated and — escort bayan from an airlines point of view — overpriced. Its no wonder then that many carriers are looking to make a change.
Ditching the screens?
Dr. Mark Hiller, CEO at Recaro Aircraft Seating, notes that accommodating passengers personal devices has become an imperative, though one that few manufacturers have yet to address.
Connectivity is no longer just an option, but a necessity, he says.
At the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, Germany last month, Recaro unveiled their newest design in economy seating, called the BL3530. The new seat features a tablet PC holder, a smart pocket for stowing devices (and protecting them from scratches) and a power supply for charging.
Shedding pounds
Rigorous training for space travel
Experiencing zero gravity on earth
The BL3530 follows another vital trend; at 10 kilograms per seat, its lighter than its predecessors.
Fuel costs are extremely high these days — this is just an accepted fact in the industry. As a result, every kilogram counts, says James Lee, director of Paperclip Design Limited, an award-winning industrial design studio.
The lightest chair on the market is made by relative newcomer Expliseat, a French company that has crafted a model made from titanium and composite materials. It weights just 4 kilograms. The company estimates the weight savings could translate into $500,000 of fuel savings per aircraft per year.
According to Benjamin Saada, Expliseats CEO, the CO2 savings are even more significant.
Every aircraft we equip saves 1,200 tons of CO2 per year. Thats the equivalent of planting 45,000 trees, he says. Imagine if every airplane in the world signed on. It could completely change the global fuel emissions.
2022: Cheap flights, more rail and hands-free cars
Get a convertible
One particularly awkward feature of airline seats is their lack of versatility. They recline, and thats about as adaptive as they get. Papercilp is hoping to change that with its new Caterpillar Convertible seat, which won the premium class and VIP category at the Crystal Cabin Award this year.
The Caterpillar can be configured as a roomy Premium Economy seat, or converted into a Business Class seat with a lie-flat bed and direct aisle access.
The core aim is to allow airlines to adjust their cabin capacity based on demand, says Lee.
Flights from London to New York might have a big need for Business Class, for example, but if you use the same plane to fly to Phuket, the demand for lie-flat seats could be a lot less. This design allows the airline to adapt, he adds.

The armrest of the future?
This is not the first year Paperclip has scooped up an award for its designs. The trademark Paperclip armrest — a dual-level version that grants both parties access — has picked up several accolades over the years.
Unfortunately, there hasnt been a lot of demand for the innovation, and its potential for a more democratic approach to elbow room.
Ive showed the design to a lot of manufactures, and theyll say, oh, thats nice, but there hasnt been a lot of need for it. The issue is cost, he says.
Though the concept may not catch on on planes, it could become a feature of seating on the ground.
Its more likely to one day see (the armrest) in theaters and cinemas. There are fewer regulations on the ground than in the air, so theres less resistance to new products, he says.
Apparently This Matters: Airplane armrest for two
Turned around
Zodiac Aerospace has also been experimenting with an alternate seating layout that could provide passengers with substantially more legroom (a 31-inch pitch instead of the more standard 27-inch). The HD 31 concept would feature two forward-facing seats sandwiching a single backward-facing seat.
According to Pierre-Antony Vastra, an executive vice president at Zodiac, the layout has, raised a lot of interest.
It provides a larger space for the shoulders while enabling the airline to board the same number of passengers, he says.

(CNN) — The U.S. space shuttle program retired in 2011, leaving American astronauts to hitchhike into orbit. But after three escort long years, NASAs successor is almost ready to make an entrance.
Orion, the agencys newest manned spaceship, is being prepared for bayan escort its first mission in December. In future missions, it will journey into deep space — to Mars and beyond — eskort farther than humans have ever gone before.
Orion comes loaded with superlatives. It boasts the largest heat shield ever built and bayan escort a computer 400 times faster than the ones on the space shuttles. It will be launched into space on the most powerful rocket NASA has ever made.
No astronauts will be aboard the December flight, which will test the spacecrafts systems for future manned missions.
NASA video captures huge solar flares
Watch astronauts play football in space
Final work on the spacecraft is under way at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Orion came one step closer to completion this month with the stacking of the crew module atop the service module.
Now that were getting so close to launch, the spacecraft completion work is visible every day, Orion Program Manager Mark Geyer said in a statement.
A 3,600-mile journey
When complete, the Orion capsule will resemble a fencing foil, with a tall spire shooting up from a rounded base. At the top will sit a launch abort system, with downward-facing thrusters that would save the crew from a jarring crash in the event of a rocket malfunction.
The bottom portion, the service module, will perform various functions such as in-space propulsion and cargo storage. Nestled between the two will be the crew module, capable of supporting human life from launch until recovery.
Attached to the service module will be a United Launch Alliance Delta IV Heavy rocket. For the first time since the space shuttles debut launch in 1981, the crew compartment will ride on the tip of the rocket rather than hanging onto its side, evoking the configuration of the famous Apollo or Gemini missions.
Come December, Orion will be wheeled onto the Cape Canaveral launch pad and the countdown will begin. If all goes as planned, the engines will rumble and its rocket will thunder in an explosion of liquid oxygen, thrusting it toward the stars.
The rocket will carry the modules 3,600 miles above Earth, or about 16 times higher than the average altitude of the International Space Station. Orion is built to take humans farther than theyve ever gone before, NASA says.
Orion will orbit our planet twice on its own during a 4½-hour journey before screaming back into the Earths atmosphere at nearly 20,000 miles per hour and splashing down in the Pacific Ocean.
Future missions
Orion astronauts will enjoy access to unprecedented space travel technology.
NASA says the spacecrafts onboard computer system can process 480 million instructions per second, which is 400 times faster than the systems on the space shuttle and 4,000 times faster than those on the Apollo flights of the 1960s and early 1970s.
Orion also boasts the largest heat shield ever built, designed to withstand temperatures that would cause a nuclear reactor to melt down.
Orions flight test will provide us with important data that will help us test out systems and further refine the design so we can safely send humans far into the solar system to uncover new scientific discoveries on future missions, Geyer said.
After Orion splashes down, NASA will begin preparing the spacecraft for the future manned missions for which it was designed.
In the future, Orion will launch on NASAs new heavy-lift rocket, the Space Launch System, the agency said. More powerful than any rocket ever built, SLS will be capable of sending humans to deep space destinations such as an asteroid and eventually Mars.
The first astronauts will travel into space aboard Orion in 2017. NASA hopes its Exploration Mission-1, a 25-day flight around the moons dark side, will demonstrate Orions reliability for deep space missions.
Exploration Mission-1 will send four astronauts farther than any human has been since the last Apollo moon mission in 1972, laying the groundwork for future endeavors.
NASA hopes Orion will ring in a new era for crewed American space exploration, and American flags may someday fly on more space outposts than just the moon.

For many people suffering Crohn’s disease, the colostomy bag on which they rely, is something to be hidden away.
But one escort bayan make-up artist from Worcester has become an internet sensation after posting a photograph of her in a bikini online, exposing escort bayan her colostomy bags to the world.
The image of Bethany Townsend, 23, has already been seen by more than nine million escort bayan people.And the positive feedback has given her the confidence to pursue her dream of becoming a model.
Bethany Townsend, 23, escort bayan became an internet sensation after posting a photograph of her in a bikini (pictured) online, exposing her colostomy bags to the world. It has been viewed by more than nine million people and the positive feedback has given her the confidence to pursue her dream of becoming a model‘I didn’t expect this kind of reaction at all,’ said Mrs Townsend.‘The photo has been seen by millions of people and it’s had 190,000 likes and over 10,000 comments on Facebook – it’s just gone ballistic.
‘I’m just so glad that it’s brought about more awareness of Crohn’s disease and it’s made me feel so much more confident about the colostomy bags.
‘If I can inspire or help other people in my position to feel a little more comfortable in their own skin then I’m really happy.

Almost 40% of pancreatic cancer patients could SAVE themselves from the deadly disease by making simple lifestyle changes
‘When I first had the bags fitted I was devastated – the reaction to this photo has really helped me accept them.’
The 23-year-old was fitted with her colostomy bags in 2010 after being diagnosed with Crohn’s disease at the age of three.
Crohn’s disease is a condition that causes inflammation of the digestive system, affecting the sufferer’s ability to digest food, absorb nutrients and eliminate waste.
In extreme situations, like Mrs Townsend’s, it becomes necessary to remove the damaged section of the intestine and bring the healthy part out as a stoma – known as a colostomy.

Mrs Townsend wanted to share the photo to bring more awareness of Crohns disease. The disease is a condition that causes inflammation of the digestive system and in severe cases, the damaged section of the intestine is removed and colostomy bags fitted (seen in these pictures)
Mrs Townsend almost died when her bowel ruptured in 2010 and since then, the make-up artist has been fitted with two colostomy bags.
She said: ‘Growing up I’d had various surgeries to try and combat the Crohn’s.
‘I’d go in and have sections of my intestine cut out, but I’d only be in remission for a couple of weeks before it came back again.
‘Then, four years ago I woke up in the morning and couldn’t move because I was in so much agony.
I had to break a glass on the floor to alert my mum who called on ambulance.
When the paramedics came, they lifted up my top to see that my surgery scar had split open.
‘I was rushed to intensive care where they doctors told my family I would need more surgery as my intestines had become infected and inflamed again.
I had no idea when I woke up that I would have the bags.

It was only after Mrs Townsend met and married her husband, Ian, 33, (pictured on their wedding day) and jetted off to Mexico last Christmas that she finally felt ready to embrace the colostomy bags
Mrs Townsend almost died when her bowel
ruptured in 2010 and since then, the make-up artist (pictured left) has been fitted with
two colostomy bags (pictured right). She has undergone a number of medical procedures and hopes a new drug becomes available in the UK to treat her condition
Mrs Townsend still suffers with Crohns disease and hopes for a cure. Since getting the colostomy bags (pictured) she has had a stem cell transplant but caught MRSA, which almost killed her. Her Crohns is still active and there is a possibility that she may have to have a bowel transplant
‘When I first woke up and my mum told me about them I was just relieved as I’d thought I was going to die.
‘But when I came out of hospital and everything finally sunk in, I remember going upstairs into my bedroom and just bursting into tears.
‘I’d known a colostomy bag might have been an option but it was always something that I had wanted to avoid.
‘I had a really good cry that day, and since then I haven’t shed another tear – I’ve just got on with it I suppose.’
It was only after Mrs Townsend met and married her husband, Ian, 33, and jetted off to Mexico last Christmas that she finally felt ready to embrace the colostomy bags.
‘When I met Ian I showed him my bags straight away, but he didn’t bat an eye lid – I actually felt like I was over reacting,’ she said.
‘He taught me that there was more to me than the bags and would always encourage me to show off my figure.
It was six months after her dream holiday that Mrs Townsend decided to share her holiday photos with the world to raise awareness about Crohns disease. She got in touch with Crohns and Colitis UK Facebook group to see if they would let her post something on their page. This is a selfie of the couple on holiday
WHAT IS CROHNS DISEASE?Crohns disease is a condition that causes inflammation of the digestive system.
Inflammation is the bodys reaction to injury or irritation and can cause redness, swelling and pain.
Crohns disease is one of the two main forms of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).The other common form of IBD is Ulcerative Colitis.
Crohns is described as chronic, meaning it is a life-long condition. Sufferers will have periods of good health, remission, as well as times when their symptoms flare up or relapse.
There is currently no cure for the disease, but drugs and surgery can give patients long periods of relief from their symptoms.
The cause of Crohns disease is not well understood.
Experts believe the condition is, in part, inherited, while an abnormal reaction of the immune system to certain bacteria in the intestines is thought to contribute.
Viruses, bacteria, diet, smoking and stress have all been suggested as environmental triggers, but there is no definitive evidence that any one of these is a cause of Crohns.
Crohns causes ulcers to form in the gut and inflammation that affects the bodys ability to digest food, absorb nutrients and eliminate waste in a healthy way.
Symptoms include:
Abdominal pain and diarrhoea
Tiredness and fatigue
Feeling generally unwell
Mouth ulcers
Loss of appetite and weight loss
Anaemia – a reduced level of red blood cells
Its estimated around 250,000 people suffer from the condition in the UK. It can start in any age, but usually appears for the first time between the ages of 10 and 40.
The disease can cause complications including perforations. They happen when a severe blockage ruptures the bowel, making a hole.
The contents of the bowel can leak through and form an abscess. It causes pain and a fever.

I wasn’t sure, but in Mexico I finally realised he was right and decided to wear my bikini.
first I was nervous and worried that people would stare but it was
fine. I realised that the colostomy bags didn’t control me or define who
I am.‘The staff at the hotel asked me about the bags on the last day of the holiday, but rather than being offended I was glad because it meant I could talk to them about Crohn’s and tell them what it is.
‘Ian’s always been my rock and supported me no matter what. We’ve had a tough few years but I know he’ll always be there for me.’
It was six months after her dream holiday that Mrs Townsend decided to share her holiday photos with the world to raise awareness about Crohn’s disease.
She got in touch with Crohn’s and Colitis UK Facebook group to see if they would let her post something on their page.
‘I sent them the picture and my information, and it all blew up from there,’ she said.
Mrs Townsend still suffers with Crohn’s disease and hopes for a cure.
‘Doctors had hoped that the colostomy bags would put an end to the Crohn’s but four weeks later it was back, she added.I then underwent a stem cell transplant but unfortunately I caught MRSA of the skin and the blood and it nearly killed me twice.‘Since then
my Crohn’s has still been extremely active, I’ve lost more weight and
now I’m waiting for the NHS to fund a drug that hasn’t really been in
the UK.
this doesn’t work a bowel transplant is in talks as I can’t have any
more of my intestine out as I haven’t got much left. But I’m still
really hopeful and after everything I’ve been through I know I’m a
strong person.’
Mrs Townsend is considering getting back into modelling – a career she gave up on after she was fitted with the bags.
feel confident enough now to put myself out there and pursue modelling
again,. she said. I did a little bit of work here and there before I
had the colostomy bags, but once I had them fitted I thought that was
the end of the dream.
looking forward to chasing my goals, and I know now that nothing can
hold me back. I won’t let the Crohn’s control me anymore.’
Mrs Townsend said that her husband taught her to accept her colostomy bags and encouraged her to show off her figure. I wasnt sure, but in Mexico (pictured) I finally realised he was right and decided to wear my bikini, she said

(CNN) — Arab residents in the Middle East and North Africa may enjoy Hollywood blockbusters, but they are also wary escort bayan of the content, saying it is potentially harmful to morality, a study finds.
The Entertainment Media Use in the Middle East eskort survey, commissioned by Northwestern University and the Doha Film Institute, interviewed more than 6,000 people — both nationals and expats bayan escort — in Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Egypt, Tunisia and the United Arab Emirates.
According to the survey 45% of respondents say escort they watch Hollywood movies, but 34% say American films have content that is harmful to morality.
Only 15% say U.S.-made films are good for morality — as opposed to 71% who feel the same about Arab movies.
The soundtrack to Egypts revolution
The respondents are also conflicted about other foreign films. While two-thirds say people benefit from watching movies from different parts of the world, 65% say they prefer films that portray their own culture.
Saving Syria cultural treasures
More than half (54%) say films are an important source of information about their own culture.
Millions of birds migrate in Galiliee
It is no surprise that an overwhelming number prefer Arab films, which are favored by more than 80% of overall respondents. In contrast, only around half of the citizens surveyed say they enjoy American and European movies.
A large majority of respondents believe entertainment should be regulated for both romantic and violent content. More than two-thirds agree that films or other entertainment programs should be banned if they are deemed to be offensive.
Respondents in Saudi Arabia and Egypt show the strongest support for censorship — 76% and 77% respectively. Tunisia appears to be the most tolerant of all, but still more than half of its respondents support censorship.
These apparently contradictory findings really are not, but reflect how the Arab world is coping with globalization and still grappling to preserve local culture, Everette E. Dennis, dean and CEO of Northwestern University in Qatar, says in a statement.
In early March, three Gulf countries — Qatar, the UAE and Bahrain — announced that Hollywood biblical blockbuster Noah could not be screened in cinemas, saying the depiction of Noah — whom Muslims revere as a prophet — is taboo in Islam.
Two months earlier, in January, censors in the UAE and Qatar cut more than 40 minutes of the three-hour-long Wolf of Wall Street, a Martin Scorsese-directed portrayal of a wayward stock trader, due to foul language and explicit content, angering moviegoers in both countries.
Yet, the Northwestern University-Doha Film Institute survey shows that 72% of Qatari residents and 68% of Emirati residents generally support banning offensive content.
Hollywood films are not the only ones that ran aground in the Middle East and North Africa. Qatar pulled Bollywood erotic horror flick Raaz 3 from theaters in 2012 and, along with the UAE, banned Indian comedy Grand Masti last year.
In 2012, a Tunisian court fined the head of a private TV station 2,400 Tunisian dinars (around $1,400) after his Nessma TV aired Persepolis, a French-American animated film whose depiction of God was slammed by some religious leaders as offensive to Islam.

We booked flights, via Expedia, with British Airways (BA), for this summer between Newcastle and Washington. 
One of the attractions escort was that the layover at Heathrow was just over an hour in both directions. However BA has since changed the bayan eskort flight times and we now have a layover of four hours outbound and over three hours on the return flight! escort bayan
BA has refused any form of compensation. Are we not entitled to any compensation for having the now far-longer layover escort kızlar in Terminal 5 at Heathrow?N.T. (via email)

Flight Delay: Although British Airways will not pay compensation for a rescheduled flight it has agreed to give you lounge access at Heathrow.
This is Money’s Philip Scott says: Having bought flights based on the convenience of the connections, I can appreciate your disappointment in having to endure a far longer wait.
However, the short answer is that unfortunately for you BA is within its rights, as per the terms and conditions of sale, to rescheduled flights.
In your case, BA rebooked you onto the next available flights, and got in touch to offer you the opportunity to rebook to fly another day, or accept a full refund, however these alternatives did not suit you.

In regards to your situation, Bob Atkinson, a travel expert at comparison site TravelSupermarket, explains: Unless the consumer prefers any of the alternatives offered by the airline, they have no option but to accept the flights. 
This is normal airline practice and happens with all airlines, not just BA. As they bought the ticket from Expedia, the customer is also covered under the terms and conditions for that agent.
These basically say they will pass on the changes to a customer from the airline, together with any alternatives offered and then make any relevant changes with the airline on the consumer’s behalf. 
BA provided the following statement on the matter: We are sorry that their plans have been disrupted. We occasionally have to make minor changes to our complex schedule, and always do our best to make sure that customers are accommodated on the most convenient flights.
Unfortunately, on this occasion, schedule changes mean that the customers will have to spend longer at Heathrow before their flights. We automatically rebooked them on the next available flights, and pro-actively contacted them to offer the opportunity to rebook to fly another day, or accept a full refund.The good news amidst this however is that following a request from This is Money, as a gesture of goodwill, BA has agreed to give you lounge access at Heathrow which hopefully at least will make the longer wait more comfortable for you.
What are the general rules around compensation for flight disruption?Philip Scott adds: While compensation does not apply in this case, as the changes were flagged well in advance and alternatives were offered, there are a number of situations when passengers are entitled to redress.
The rule of thumb according to European Union rules – which apply to airlines leaving and flying into the region – is that if a flight cancelled, overbooked or badly delayed, passengers are likely to be able to make a claim.
Bear in mind that airlines in some cases may try to dodge paying out compensation by claiming ‘extraordinary circumstances’, such as was the case for example with the volcanic ash debacle back in 2010. We recently reported that an airline may no longer reject claims on the grounds that a technical fault arose outside of its routine maintenance programme.
The EU ruling, known as (EC) 261/2004 states that if a passenger is denied boarding – due to overbooking or a flight is cancelled it must compensate them.
Under such circumstances passengers have the right to a refund of their ticket within seven days or a return flight to the first point of departure or re-routing to their final destination.
In addition, if applicable, passengers have the right to refreshments, meals, hotel accommodation as well as transport between the airport and place of accommodation.
In terms of monetary compensation, the law says passengers are entitled to €250 for all flights of 1500 kilometres or less, €400 for all intra-community flights of more than 1500 kilometres, and for all other flights between 1500 and 3500 kilometres; and €600 for all other flights.In regards to severe delays the regulations say that passengers must be offered free meals and refreshments as well as telephone and email access. If the departure time is postponed until the next day, passengers must also be offered hotel accommodation and transport between the airport and the place of accommodation.
For delays of five hours or longer, passengers may opt for reimbursement of the full cost of the ticket together with, when relevant, a return flight to the first point of departure.In situations where the airline does not provide any care and assistance, ensure you keep receipts for any meals and other modest expenses and claim on your return home – just remember to keep the spending within reason.

(CNN) — Abu Usama appears to be in his late 20s. With a neat ginger beard and a rifle slung escort bayan over his shoulder, he addresses fellow Muslims back in Germany from his new home in northern Syria.
In a 9-minute video escort released by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), he explains that he took his name from Osama bin bayan escort Laden, because he hit the head of injustice, and he is the one who terrorized [the West] as they terrorized bayan escort ankara us. Since they did not stop doing this, we will treat them in kind.
He asks his audience: Are you happy with your life in Germany? Going to the nightclubs and having female friends? according to a translation of the video by SITE Intelligence.
Abu Usama then appeals for Muslims to join the struggle led by ISIS leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi. Addressing al Baghdadi, he says: The entire world is against you, because you are inviting to establish the Islamic State. Therefore, we love you and we stand beside you.
The message was recorded last November. There is no record of Abu Usama since then. German media have reported that he is a former pizza delivery driver from a small town in North Rhine-Westphalia.
But just how many have beaten the same path as Abu Usama — from Florida and France, Austria and Australia? And if they come home, will they bring terrorism with them?

Brutal group behind violence in Iraq

ISISs ambitions are focused on creating an emirate in the parts of Syria and Iraq it now controls, as the first step toward the greater goal of a wider Islamic caliphate. But any U.S. military action to support the Iraqi government could change that. If it chose to, ISIS could unleash a tide of young men with clean passports, fighting or bomb-making skills and unshakeable belief on their home countries.
In his video, Abu Usama said it was the Americans who were the terrorists.
The task of counter-terrorism agencies is complicated by the fact that in many Western states it is not illegal to travel to Syria. After all, these governments are supporting the Free Syrian Army and many who do go are inspired by humanitarian concerns.
A senior U.S. official, who spoke to CNN on condition of anonymity, said last week that events in Syria and Iraq are dominating discussions in the counter-terrorism community. The official said ISIS was now focused on Iraq, but the big concern was that it will shift its attention to the West — identifying, recruiting and training Western individuals to return to their homelands as hardened, combat-trained extremists.
The signs are there. In January, ISIS leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi blamed Jews and Crusaders for stoking infighting between jihadist groups in Syria, adding: Very soon you will be in direct confrontation—you will be forced to do so, Allah permitting.
A French-Algerian extremist, Mehdi Nemmouche, is accused of killing four people at the Jewish Museum in Brussels last month. When French police arrested him they also seized a Kalashnikov rifle wrapped in a flag bearing the ISIS insignia, according to prosecutors, who said Nemmouche spent about a year fighting in Syria. It is not known whether he joined ISIS.
At best, Western intelligence has a worryingly incomplete picture of who has traveled to join ISIS and other jihadist groups, despite some success in ascertaining identities through electronic eavesdropping and monitoring social media.
There is very little first-hand intelligence from Iraq or Syria; the majority of foreign fighters have traveled via Turkey. Authorities in France believe some 800 French nationals have travelled to Syria, or intend to. Analysts believe as many as 100 American citizens have made the trek. One additional concern: most Europeans are able to travel to the U.S. without visas.
French and German citizens have carried out suicide bombings in Syria this year. So has at least one American. Last month, 22-year old Moner Mohammad Abusalha from Florida became the first American suicide bomber in Syria, after joining ISIS rival and al Qaeda affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra.

I dont think the public realizes the seriousness of the problem. The penny hasnt dropped. But Syria is a game-changer

UK police say they made 40 arrests for Syria-related offences in the first three months of this year, almost double the number of the entire previous year.
Richard Walton, head of Scotland Yards counter-terrorism command, warned last year there were signs these recruits could be turned around to launch attacks in the UK. I dont think the public realizes the seriousness of the problem, he said. The penny hasnt dropped. But Syria is a game-changer.
FBI Director James Comey said last month: Theres going to be a diaspora out of Syria at some point, and we are determined not to let lines be drawn from Syria today to a future 9/11.
Aaron Zelin, a fellow at the Washington Center for Near East Policy, estimates that almost 3,000 European citizens have travelled to fight in Syria.
Many of these young men were drawn to the cause of overthrowing Bashar al-Assad and establishing an Islamic state in part or all of Syria. They see themselves as the foot soldiers of a fledgling Islamic emirate at the heart of the Arab world. But now it is ISIS — not al Qaeda — that is bringing the dream of a new Islamic Caliphate so tantalizingly close.
If the group can retain even a few of its spectacular gains in Iraq, adding to the northern parts of Syria it already controls, the flow of foreign fighters from the Arab world and the West will likely be turbo-charged. ISIS has already proved adept at releasing a string of propaganda videos featuring foreign fighters.
So far, the little evidence that has come to light — mainly from ISISs own announcements — suggests that most suicide bombers in Iraq have been Arabs, including Moroccans, Tunisians and Jordanians. But in March, it celebrated the martyrdom of a Dane who had been involved in an attack against an Iraqi army base in Taji, north of Baghdad.

Iraqs best case scenario to stop ISIS

Existential battle between Sunni, Shia

Another Dane detonated a suicide car bomb against Iraqi troops south of Mosul, and a French citizen bombed a police headquarters in Mosul, the group said in May, in a statement translated by SITE Intelligence. The Frenchman, called Abu al-Qaqa al-Firansi, had come to Iraq through Syria.
Al Qaeda in Pakistan taught many European and American recruits how to make high-explosive bombs out of readily available materials. To date there is no public evidence that ISIS or Jabhat al-Nusra have provided Western recruits with bomb-making training tailored for taking home. Attacking the West has not been a priority for either group to date. But it would be naïve to think that overt U.S. military action — such as air strikes — against ISIS fighters in Iraq would not provoke a response.
Laith Alkhouri, an analyst at Flashpoint says the United States would be crossing a red line: The risk of terrorist attacks in the West will increase because ISIS will see any U.S. intervention as the Crusaders trying to stop an Islamic state rising.
Al Qaeda operatives in the region, despite their differences with ISIS, may also step up attempts to hit the West in the wake of any U.S. strikes. Last month the U.S. Treasury department stated that Abd Al-Rahman al-Juhani, a high-ranking Saudi al Qaeda operative previously based in Pakistan was now operating in Syria and part of a group of senior al Qaeda members in Syria formed to conduct external operations against Western targets.
Many analysts expect retaliation would be against U.S. interests overseas, rather than the in homeland itself. It has been a growing focus of discussion on jihadist forums. U.S. allies in the region are already concerned about ISIS spreading its wings. In March, Saudi Arabia designated ISIS a terrorist group; hundreds of Saudis are said to have joined the group.
The challenge posed by ISIS is compounded by the fact that it treats Iraq and Syria as one theatre of war. It has even declared the border as non-existent. Its fighters have great mobility, and may gain experience of a variety of combat situations. And as an organization it has depth.
While observers tend to focus on the Syria foreign fighter issue, the problem actually spans two countries. Iraq is now a key part of the same quandary that Western leaders have been attempting to figure out in Syria for some time, says Zelin.
Additionally, ISIS has shown itself entirely independent — and highly critical – of al Qaeda Central under the leadership of Ayman al Zawahiri. It has set itself up as the real bearer of Osama bin Ladens legacy, and may be tempted to cement its growing reputation by announcing its reach far beyond Mosul or Raqqa, its capital in Syria.
The senior U.S. official said ISIS was growing and making a huge name for itself. And what better way to capitalize on that than make a major attack in the West? he added.
