Manchester United are monitoring Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld contract situation: report

Sports
Manchester United reportedly keeping an eye on Tottenham Hotspurs defender Toby Alderweireld as they look to bring in recruitments in the summer. Reports have claimed that Jose Mourinho is keen on bolstering his team’s defence after recent fixtures have exploited the club’s only weakness. United’s losses to Newcastle and Tottenham were frustrating and of themselves but it was more so due to some defensive errors. Against Tottenham Phil Jones was at fault, scoring an own goal whilst at Newcastle Chris Smalling was at fault after he conceded a free-kick for diving in which the Magpies capitalised on. Rumours have surfaced that Mourinho is going to move on both players and is monitoring Alderweireld just in case an opportunity reveals itself. According to the Mirror, Manche...

Tuesday’s Workwear Report: Wool Sheath Dress

LifeStyle
Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. This wool sheath dress from Brooks Brothers looks like a great basic for the office.

Key defender facing battle to face Sevilla this month: report

Key defender facing battle to face Sevilla this month: report

Sports
Eric Bailly is facing a race against time to recover full fitness in time for Manchester United’s trip to Sevilla in the Champions League on February 21, according to reports. The defender has been absent from the squad since the November international break and underwent ankle surgery in December after conservative treatment failed to solve his problem. Reports last month suggested that Bailly was ahead of schedule and in contention to recover in time for the last 16 clash at the Estadio Sanchez Pizjuan. But according to ESPN‘s Mark Ogden, the meeting with Sevilla could come a week too soon for the defender, who continues to work on his fitness at Carrington away from the first team squad. Jose Mourinho confirmed last week that Bailly, unlike Zlatan Ibrahimovic, hadn’t ...
Splurge Monday’s Workwear Report: Jacquard Blazer

Splurge Monday’s Workwear Report: Jacquard Blazer

LifeStyle
Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. I’ve seen a lot of jacquard blazers that almost look like pajama tops, but the darts and the three-quarter sleeves on this one go a long way toward giving it a more tailored look. I love the paisley jacquard fabric because it’s so intricate and beautiful with the embroidery, and I like the edging as well. There’s very low stock, so if you like this blazer, grab it now. It’s at Net-a-Porter for $1,890. Jacquard Blazer Here’s a lower-priced option at Bloomingdale’s (with a subtle paisley jacquard) and a much lower-priced option at Amazon in sizes 12–30.

Sexual Assault Case Against Seal Rejected by L.A. District Attorney's Office: Report

Sexual Assault Case Against Seal Rejected by L.A. District Attorney's Office: Report

Entertainment
The sexual battery case filed against Seal by a former neighbor has been rejected by the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office, TMZ reports. The 54-year-old “Kiss from a Rose” singer will not face any criminal charges. In January, TMZ reported that Seal was under criminal investigation for sexual battery, stemming from an alleged incident at his home in the fall of 2016 with actress Tracey Birdsall. According to Birdsall, 54, Seal had allegedly forced himself on her in his kitchen — attempting to kiss her and later groping her breasts in advances she quickly pushed off and demanded he stop. Though they were neighbors and developed a close friendship, Birdsall told TMZ there was never anything romantic between them and that his advances came out of nowhere. She claimed he belittled her out

FCC report finds almost no broadband competition at 100Mbps speeds

Technology
Enlarge (credit: Getty Images | jangeltun) If you live in the US and want home Internet service at speeds of at least 100Mbps, you will likely find one Internet service provider in your area or none at all. The latest Internet Access Services report was released by the Federal Communications Commission last week. The report's broadband competition chart finds that 44 percent of developed Census blocks had zero home broadband providers offering download speeds of at least 100Mbps and upload speeds of at least 10Mbps. Forty-one percent of developed Census blocks had one ISP offering such speeds, for a total of 85 percent with zero or one ISP. The remaining 15 percent had two or three providers at that level, as of the end of 2016. That's up a bit from June 30, 2016, when about 12 percent ...
Man Utd are interested in bringing in this Madrid star: report

Man Utd are interested in bringing in this Madrid star: report

Sports
Manchester United fans may be in for a treat after recent reports have linked the club with Real Madrid star Isco. The Spaniard has apparently seen his match time decrease this season and there are rumours of manager Zinedine Zidane losing faith in him. Should that be the case then it could be that United will be able to sign the attacking midfielder for a cheaper price than his actual value. Isco is clearer one of the world’s best talents so it’s a little strange to think his time at Madrid has come to an end, particularly as Zidane appeared to favour him in the beginning. Although there are questions of where he will play, supporters will surely just be excited to get their hands on such a talent and there may be added incentive of beating their rivals to the deal. According...
