0Shares0000LONDON, April 7- Bayern Munich’s World Cup-winning defender was the talk of social media on Thursday, but for unwanted reasons after Lionel Messi embarrassed him.The Argentine took centre stage with two sensational second-half goals as Barcelona won their Champions League first leg 3-0 against the Bundesliga champions at the Camp Nou. Messi’s second was poetry in motion, his footwork leaving Boateng on his backside, before he coolly chipped the world’s best goalkeeper, Manuel Neuer.Sky Sports pundit and former Liverpool star Jamie Redknapp could only marvel at Messi’s talents, describing his move on Boateng as “almost illegal”.“It was an honour and a privilege to see the little fellow tonight,” Redknapp said of the Barcelona No. 10 after the game.“He is a genius. What he does with a football at times is beyond belief. What he did to Jerome Boateng for the second goal was almost illegal.“He wanted to win that game and he has done it again.“How many times will we find ourselves in this situation, talking about him? He is superb.”Fellow Sky pundit Jamie Carragher added that Messi made Boateng look like “a baby in a playpen”.Inevitably, social media blew up following Messi’s heroics.-Fox Sports 0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today) -Photos courtesy Twitter read more

OTTAWA – Thousands of employees of Canada’s public broadcaster are being warned their personal information may have been compromised after a recent computer theft, the CBC said Wednesday.“The stolen equipment, while password protected, may contain electronic files, including some personal financial information” of people who recently worked for the CBC and Radio-Canada, the Crown corporation’s chief financial officer said in an email.Around 20,000 people could be affected, including current employees, outside contractors and some former employees who worked over the last 18 months, the broadcaster confirmed.But a CBC spokesman would not say where or exactly when the theft took place, only that a piece of equipment was taken recently from “a secure area of a CBC/Radio-Canada space,” and that police were investigating.“For security reasons we have been advised not to disclose further details of the theft at this time,” said Douglas Chow, the CBC’s senior manager of public relations.Affected employees were told to expect more information soon detailing the financial information that may have been put at risk.“You may have received or may soon receive a letter from our chief privacy officer,” executive vice-president and CFO Judith Purves wrote to employees.“The letter, sent to your home address, outlines what happened and the specific type of information (name, bank account and amounts deposited into your account by CBC/Radio-Canada) that may be involved in your case.”The broadcaster said it wasn’t aware of any personal data being accessed.Those who receive a letter are being offered one year of no-cost credit monitoring and identity theft insurance as a safeguard.“We are doing everything we can to minimize any risk from this incident,” Purves wrote.“We are also reviewing all of our security procedures and will enhance them where appropriate.”Ottawa police said they would not comment on the investigation. read more

WASHINGTON – Former Fox News executive Bill Shine will be joining the Trump administration as deputy chief of staff for communications.That’s according to a senior White House official who spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday because details of the announcement were still being finalized. A formal announcement was expected as soon as Thursday.Shine, who left Fox last year amid questions over his handling of sexual harassment and discrimination allegations, was expected to oversee the White House press and communications shops, according to another person familiar with Trump’s thinking.Trump has effectively been serving as his own communications director since the departure of Hope Hicks several months ago.Shine’s name had been floated for months as a potential White House hire. He and the president have been in talks over the last month, and he was interviewed several times for the post, according to two people briefed on the discussions. All spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the unannounced plans.Shine was never accused of direct wrongdoing but resigned from Fox last year amid allegations that also led to the departures of CEO Roger Ailes and Fox News personality Bill O’Reilly.The longtime Ailes lieutenant was considered vulnerable because of claims that he looked the other way as charges of toxic workplace behaviour piled up. He’d been named co-president with Jack Abernethy upon Ailes’ departure.Shine is close with another Fox News host, Sean Hannity, a close friend of the president’s.Shine did not return messages seeking comment.___Associated Press writer Jonathan Lemire contributed to this report from New York. read more
