first_imgLiverpool F.C. crushed Arsenal 4-0 at Anfield on Sunday, leaving captain Jordan Henderson enthusing that Juergen Klopp’s side is getting “better and better”.The Merseysiders qualified for the Champions League with a 4-2 second-leg win in their qualifying game on Wednesday before putting Arsenal to the sword.”As the games have gone on, we’ve got better and better. The fitness levels have been brilliant and a lot of that is down to pre-season,” Henderson said.”I thought we did very well. Arsenal had periods with the ball but I always felt we were pretty solid and defended well as a team.””On the break we were devastating. We are delighted with the performance. I felt we controlled the game everywhere, we were brilliant and worked so hard,” he said.Klopp was pleased that his team had come through their first test of their ability to combine midweek European action with, on paper at least, a tough Premier League test.Reuters Photo “We need to learn we can do things like this on three or four days. We wanted to show it today and prove it ourselves and be spot on from the first second. We wanted to show our ambitions against a very strong side. The performance was perfect and the result is the result of the performance,” the German said.”We were very good, and so far we have learned from each game and built on it. It was even better than against Hoffenheim, but it was already very good. There was pressure on the boys and we wanted to show our desire to do something special and the boys did very well,” he added.advertisementWhile Liverpool F.C.’s lightning quick attack won the game for them with Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane all finding the target before substitute Daniel Sturridge added the fourth, Klopp was also pleased with the defensive display.”It was overall a really good performance and well deserved. It’s very important the clean sheet, with all the discussions about the defence. The result is the result of the performance.”last_img read more

Rudiger: Chelsea players should be ashamed!

October 27, 2019 0 Comments

first_imgAntonio Rudiger has said Chelsea should be ashamed of their performance against Bournemouth on Wednesday night.The Blues lost 4-0 on the south coast, causing manager Maurizio Sarri to lock his players in the dressing room for 45 minutes after the game, as he searched for answers to Chelsea’s subpar showing.While Rudiger did not offer an explanation as to what happened on Wednesday, he did claim the performance – which ended in Sarri’s side suffering the club’s worst league defeat for 23 years – was unacceptable. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? “Everyone needs to be ashamed of what happened in the last game,” the Germany international told Sky Sports.“Everyone needs to think very deeply about that because you can win, lose or draw, but it’s the manner which is important.”In the second half, I can’t really describe it. We went out and they scored after two minutes then things went very badly. Nothing came from us – N’Golo [Kante] had a half chance but that was it.”If you look at the view of football, we made it too easy for Bournemouth by losing the ball up front – everyone knows Bournemouth are going on the counter, and they were waiting for this.”We have played better this season and that’s what hurts, we didn’t really try to change this result, that is what is badRudiger has called for calm after the shock defeat and believes that Chelsea’ success during the remainder of the season will depend on their mental strength.“We call ourselves a top team, but this cannot happen to us,”he said.Antonio Rudiger“We have to be mentally strong for the rest of the season. It’s clear now, we are Chelsea, there has been a lot of criticism from outside but here we must be cool in our mind and be honest with ourselves.”Tactics is not my business because I am not the coach, I am a player, but everyone needs to commit again“We need to go back to basics because it’s not normal for a Bournemouth player to take on four defenders and go through.”Those basics are to win challenges, to look for challenges. It’s nice if you have possession but everyone needs to know what their job is, which is, first and foremost, getting a clean sheet.”We have to find continuity because right now there are too many ups and downs. We have to win against Huddersfield and show a big reaction after the Bournemouth defeat.”The Blues will look to bounce back when they host bottom side Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

Damen’s GARÇON Wins ISS Awards of Distinction for …

October 24, 2019 0 Comments

first_imgzoom The Damen-built 67m Fast Yacht Support vessel, GARÇON, has won the ISS Awards of Distinction for Innovation at the International Superyacht Society Awards Gala in Fort Lauderdale.GARÇON came out top of an industry-led voting process that assessed five shortlisted entries in the competitive and broad-ranging Innovation category. According to the International Superyacht Society: “The Excellence in Innovation award is given to an individual or business that has demonstrated innovation in their endeavours within the previous year.”GARÇON was designed and customised according to the requirements of the client, the owner of an 87m luxury superyacht. The vessel’s innovative ‘axe bow’ and underwater body shape enable her to reach speeds between 18-25 knots in all sea states, making this a fast and dependable support ship – whatever the weather. GARÇON, whose sale was brokered by owner’s representative Moran Yacht & Ship, has 235 m² deck space for toys such as tenders, jet skis and sailing dinghies. In addition, the vast deck space makes room for a fully certified helipad with 5000 kg take-off weight for commercial use.Sales and marketing of the Damen range of Yacht Support vessels is handled by Amels, and there to receive the award on behalf of GARÇON, was Amels CEO Rob Luijendijk with Sales Manager.With three Yacht Support vessels already delivered and another four under construction, Damen has responded to growing interest and demand with the creation of a specialised Yacht Support Department headed up by Mark Vermeulen. “Following the success of the SEA AXE vessels, we have expanded the range up to 90 metres in length, with our Yacht Support vessels based on proven heavy-duty platforms, such as Damen’s Offshore Patrol Vessel and Worldwide Support Vessel,” said Mark Vermeulen, Director of Damen’s Yacht Support Division. “With a ship of these proportions, almost anything is possible. With an inside and outside combined deck space of 800 square metres, these vessels give you huge capacity. And like GARÇON, they look great too. The perfect complement to a luxury superyacht.”Amels is the exclusive yacht-building member of the Dutch Damen Shipyards Group, established in 1927 and now the largest shipyard in the Netherlands. Damen consists of 40 shipyards throughout the world and employs over 8,000 people in 35 countries. In 2012 the Group delivered over 150 vessels, and generated a turnover of €1.7 billion.

first_imgTo read more about the question period on Caribou Recovery; CLICK HERETo read more about the 2019 Budget; CLICK HERE Davies goes on to express,”The life of this Budget over the next three years is going to be a cost to every British Columbian, $1200 dollars and $2500 dollars per family over the next three years, there is a direct impact coming out of your pocket and my pocket starting this year,”“We hear affordability this entire Budget and I cannot see it, I cannot see affordability for British Columbians from this Budget at all, if anything it is the exact opposite, it’s going to cost the middle class and the average person of BC way more over the next couple of years. Their plan is backwards and most of that money is coming down on the taxpayer,” shares DaviesConcerned for the people of the Region, Davies goes on to say, “When you start looking at how this will affect us, increase carbon tax, employee health tax, impacting business people, property tax, Municipalities pass that down and a decline in the resource sector, that is a lot of red flags for the people in the Northeast,”“This is what worries me, we are already seeing companies moving out of the Province and we are going to see small businesses are going to be impacted more and small businesses are the backbone of our economy and when we start taxing small businesses to the point they can’t make ends meet they will go somewhere else or they will shut down,” said Davies“That leads to the cycle of more unemployment and more issues for the economy, it’s a worrisome budget for me it’s not what is in the budget, its what isn’t in the Budget and those are growing the economy, the other side of the balance sheet,” said DaviesIn reference to the LNG being mentioned in the Budget, Davies expresses his concern, “Our party when we were in Government we worked on it for years, it is good to see it is in the Budget but let’s look at how things are rolling out. The Coastal link pipeline, there is no real pressure from Government to help resolve the issues of getting that put through. We are hopeful it will as this whole project relies upon this. I am hopeful the LNBG project will go but that’s just one project.” As the conversation took a turn towards Caribou Recovery and the recent question period at the legislature, Davie spoke more on the frustration and the impacts of not knowing.“Caribou Recovery, what does this look like for us, we don’t know, we don’t know. We are being kept in the dark, we the general public, myself included,” said Davies, “What impacts is that going to have on the resource sector, tourism sector and recreation users?” asked Davies, “We start to get worried when any use gets restricted of backcountry and BC’s land.”Davies goes on to share he just had a meeting on the Land Resource Management Plan, Davies says,”Again all of these compounding factors are coming to play here Class A parks, the TLE, the Site C land, agreements, what are the impacts going to be if you start adding these up on our resource sector. This is really concerning when you start to add these all up together and what this will look like and what it will do to our socio-economic area of the Northeast.”“It’s hugely devastating this directly impacts people as this threatens good-paying careers and jobs. There is not much of an appetite for the resource sector if we don’t have that we are going to go broke,” said Daviescenter_img FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – With the 2019 Budget being released, Dan Davies MLA for Peace River North shares his concerns for what he does not see in the Budget and the impact from the lack of information on the Caribou Recovery Plan.“There is lots to talk about and a lot will be talked about in the coming weeks as we debate in the legislature. The things that really stand out for me and very impactful for the folks in the Northeast and Peace country is complete lack of mention on job creation, growing the economy or revenue from the resource sector which is expected to decline by 30 percent over the next several years” said Davies“We know B.C. struggles to attract capital, it is hard to get permitted in this Province, we see time and time again. How hard it is to build in this Province and instead of the government putting things into the Budget to help attract this investment, they are basically rolling over and allowing this to happen and this will have huge consequences to the Northeast and the economy as we are a resource-based economy” shared Davies.last_img read more

UN calls on Israel to halt demolition of Palestinian homes

October 11, 2019 0 Comments

27 October 2009The United Nations today called on Israel to immediately halt forced evictions and demolitions of Palestinian homes in East Jerusalem, warning that as many as 60,000 people there may be at risk of forced evictions, demolitions and displacement. Israeli authorities demolished the homes of six Palestinian families – 26 people, including 10 children – in East Jerusalem today. This brings the number displaced through forced evictions or house demolitions in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt) to 600, half of them children, since the beginning of the year, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) reported. At least 500 more have been affected by partial demolitions of their homes or livelihoods.“Such actions run counter to international law and have a serious and long-term negative impact on Palestinian families and communities,” OCHA said. “The UN reiterates its call for an immediate and unconditional halt to such actions and urges the State of Israel to protect the civilian population in oPt from further displacement and dispossession.”Israel occupied the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem, in the 1967 war and annexed the latter in a move not recognized internationally. According to Israeli authorities house demolitions are carried out on homes that have been built without official building permits, rendering them “illegal.”But, OCHA said, “lack of adequate planning combined with strict administrative requirements and high fees makes it extremely difficult for Palestinian residents to obtain such permits, leaving them no choice but to build ‘illegally’ to provide shelter for their families. Palestinian families who move outside the municipal boundaries risk losing their Jerusalem ID [identity] cards, and with it the right to live in and access the city.” According to conservative estimates, as many as 60,000 Palestinians in East Jerusalem may be at risk of forced evictions, demolitions and displacement.“Many others are facing mounting pressure to leave the city as a result of extensive physical, legal and administrative restrictions that affect every aspect of their daily lives,” OCHA concluded. read more

Darfur refugees in Chad plead with senior UN official for water food

October 6, 2019 0 Comments

On the final stop of a five-day mission to the region, Acting UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Wendy Chamberlin assured all she met that the agency and its partners were doing everything they can to improve the situation while they await the day that they can safely go home to Darfur.Yesterday, she visited UNHCR’s field office in the town of Iriba and met with refugees in the Touloum camp.In Darfur on Wednesday, Ms. Chamberlin called on the international community to contribute more money for humanitarian relief for the crisis, which began two years ago when rebels took up arms, partly in protest at the distribution of economic resources, but has since been compounded by armed militia attacks on villages which have uprooted more than 1.8 million people internally beyond the 200,000 who fled into Chad. read more

India joins elite missile tech group controlling global sale

India joins elite missile tech group controlling global sale The Netherlands Ambassador Alphonsus Stoelinga, right, and Luxembourg’s Chargé d’Affaires Laure Huberty talk on their mobile phones as they come out of the Indian foreign ministry after handing over the membership papers of Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) to Indian foreign secretary S Jaishankar, in New Delhi, India, Monday, 27 June 2016. India has joined an exclusive club of countries controlling exports in missile technology, just a day after bemoaning its exclusion from another elite group that governs international nuclear fuel and technology. (AP Photo/Manish Swarup) NEW DELHI – India on Monday joined an exclusive club of countries controlling exports in missile technology, just a day after bemoaning its exclusion from another elite group that governs international nuclear fuel and technology.Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar signed onto the Missile Technology Control Regime aimed at preventing the unchecked proliferation of missiles and their delivery systems.The foreign ministry, in a statement issued soon after signing the accession document in the presence of the ambassadors of France, the Netherlands and Luxembourg, thanked the other 34 members of the MTCR group for supporting its inclusion.“India’s entry into the regime as its thirty-fifth member would be mutually beneficial in the furtherance of international non-proliferation objectives,” the statement said.Admission in the MTCR was seen as the next step for India in legitimizing its nuclear energy and missile programs after it conducted atomic tests in 1998 that alarmed the international community.The MTCR restricts the proliferation of missiles, rocket systems, unmanned air vehicles, or drones, and the technology for systems capable of carrying a payload of 500 kilograms (1,100 pounds) for at least 300 kilometres (185 miles), as well as systems intended for the delivery of weapons of mass destruction.In 2008, India signed a landmark civil nuclear deal with the United States giving it some access to nuclear materials and technologies.Since then, India has been pushing for its inclusion in the various elite groups that control the export of nuclear materials and regulate technologies relating to conventional, nuclear, biological and chemical weapons.The United States welcomed India’s accession to the MTCR, saying it would bolster the control regime’s effectiveness. State Department spokesman Elizabeth Trudeau said that India has demonstrated a sustained commitment to nonproliferation.India still hopes to secure support for joining the Nuclear Suppliers Group — a goal supported by Washington — despite strong objections from China.Last week, at a plenary meeting of the nuclear group in Seoul, India’s membership to the 48-nation group that controls access to sensitive nuclear technology was shot down after China raised procedural hurdles.India, still smarting over being denied entry, on Sunday hit out at Beijing, saying that the issue of its membership of the nuclear group was not going to go away.External Affairs ministry spokesman Vikas Swarup said New Delhi had taken up the issue with Beijing at multiple levels.“We are going to continue discussing this with China. This is going to be an important element of our discussion with China. We will continue to impress upon them that relationships move forward on the basis of mutual accommodation of each other’s interests, concerns and priorities,” Swarup told reporters in New Delhi.China is not a member of the MTCR, however. Beijing’s application to join the MTCR is pending, leading to some analysts in New Delhi to say India could use it as a bargaining chip to leverage its entry into the nuclear group.___Associated Press writer Matthew Pennington in Washington contributed to this report.___Follow Nirmala George on Twitter at by Nirmala George, The Associated Press Posted Jun 27, 2016 6:41 am MDT Last Updated Jun 27, 2016 at 2:21 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

TSX dragged lower by energy stocks Cenovus shares shed 14 after major

October 3, 2019 0 Comments

TORONTO – Canada’s main stock index fell Thursday, dragged lower by falling energy stocks following a blockbuster $17.7-billion deal by Cenovus Energy, one of Alberta’s biggest oilsands players.The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index dropped 78.87 points to 15,578.76, with energy and gold sectors leading decliners.Oil stocks registered the biggest loss, shedding 2.6 per cent, as other big names like Encana (TSX:ECA), Husky Energy (TSX:HSE) and Suncor (TSX:SU) also ended in the red.But the biggest loser in the energy group was Cenovus Energy (TSX:CVE), which announced late Wednesday that it will buy most of the Canadian assets of U.S.-based ConocoPhillips.The acquisition prompted investors to sell off shares and saw Cenovus stock drop nearly 14 per cent, or $2.40, to end at $15.05 on the TSX. ConocoPhillips’s New York-listed shares were up nearly nine per cent.The weakness in the oil sector came even though the May crude contract was up 84 cents at US$50.35 a barrel, climbing for a third day in a row. The Canadian dollar, which often trades in tandem with energy prices, was unchanged at 75.00 cents US.Michael Currie, an investment adviser and vice-president at TD Wealth, says there’s currently a “push and pull” between U.S. producers and the producers from the rest of the world.On Thursday, Kuwait, a member of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, reportedly said it was open to extending current production cuts by another six months. The group had broached the idea this past weekend.OPEC members, including Saudi Arabia, agreed in late November to cut its production by 1.2 million barrels a day, the first reduction agreed to by the 14-member cartel since 2008.Eleven other non-OPEC oil-producing countries pledged in December to cut an additional 558,000 barrels a day, reaching an overall reduction of 1.8 million barrels per day.But Currie says the quotas aren’t having the desired effect, as cheaper producers, particularly in the U.S., are using the shortfall to come back online and fill in the gap. Despite that, OPEC has very little choice but to continue with an extension.“They have a choice but they tried for a year-and-a-half of not doing the cuts and saw oil prices fall,” he said. “So now they are trying the tightening approach … but there is nothing they can do about the U.S. production.”Currie says the price of oil needs to fall below US$40 a barrel to disincentivize U.S. shale producers.In New York, major indices were up. The Dow Jones industrial average gained 69.17 points to 20,728.49, the S&P 500 index added 6.93 points to 2,368.06, and the Nasdaq composite index advanced 16.79 points at 5,914.34 to close at a record high.In commodities, May natural gas contracts were down four cents at US$3.19 per mmBTU, the June gold contract lost $8.80 at US$1,248 an ounce and May copper contracts dipped a penny at US$2.67 a pound.Follow @LindaNguyenTO on Twitter. by Linda Nguyen, The Canadian Press Posted Mar 30, 2017 9:35 am MDT Last Updated Mar 30, 2017 at 3:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TSX dragged lower by energy stocks, Cenovus shares shed 14% after major deal read more

Hatra destruction war crime says UN chief in wake of ISIL destruction

October 2, 2019 0 Comments

and bulldozing of the ancient Assyrian city of Nimrud and the Director General of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation also stated her outrage at the latest attack. “The destruction of Hatra marks a turning point in the appalling strategy of cultural cleansing underway in Iraq,” said Irina Bokova in a statement released jointly with the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO) Director General, Abdulaziz Othman Altwaijri.“With this latest act of barbarism against Hatra, Daesh [ISIL] shows the contempt in which it holds the history and heritage of Arab people, which had been rightly recognized as a World Heritage site,” the statement said.Hatra, a large fortified city under the influence of the Parthian Empire, withstood invasions by the Romans in 116CE and 198CE thanks to its high, thick walls reinforced by towers. The remains of the city, especially the temples where Hellenistic and Roman architecture blend with Eastern decorative features, attest to the greatness of its civilization.The statement said this latest direct attack on the history of Islamic Arab cities confirms the role of destruction of heritage in the propaganda of extremists groups. It also drew attention to the cultural toll paid during the conflict, noting that, in addition to the tragic loss of human life and the humanitarian crisis, persecution of cultural and religious minorities, as well as the targeting of cultural heritage for intentional destruction have been practised, with the aim of erasing the history of the country and thus undermining the peaceful coexistence of diverse communities.”UNESCO and ISESCO are fully mobilized to respond to this emergency and stand ready to assist the Iraqi authorities in any possible way,” said Mrs Bokova and Mr. Altwaijri. read more

first_img Former UFC and current Bellator MMA star Chael Sonnen had Jack Swagger on his podcast this week where Swagger revealed he is no longer with WWE.“As of yesterday (February 28), Chael, I have asked for my release from WWE. It’s still kind of an ongoing process right now. Basically, it came down to contract negotiations and we were way off. They didn’t value me at what I thought I was valued at. This was a business decision. They weren’t giving me the opportunity to make the full amount of income I could for my family. So when you put it like that, it’s time to go.”WWE has yet to officially issue a statement about Swagger as of this report.You can check out Swagger’s full appearance on the podcast below. videosPowered by AnyClipChael Sonnen Retires After LossVideo Player is loading.Play VideoPauseUnmuteDuration 0:40/Current Time 0:03Loaded: 100.00%0:03Remaining Time -0:37 FullscreenUp NextThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

He wasn’t showcased as the best hand ever, but he could move and has a world of potential. Just get him a mouthpiece and keep him away from a xenophobe/super-patriot gimmick. Ugh. Thats because they have shitty booking and don’t just let wrestlers do what they want to do, it’s all controlled bullshit, WWE is not wrestling.

Another mysterious deep space signal traced to the other side of the

first_img Sci-Tech Comments 26 Photos As if that wasn’t enough FRB poppin’ off action for a single week, a Russian observatory also reported a batch of nine more FRBs, including a new repeater. Repeating FRBs are kind of a big deal because they’re rare (the latest from Russia is just the third ever to be captured) and easier to trace to a source galaxy.That’s a lot of fast radio burst news for just one week, but even still the nature of FRBs remains one of the biggest mysteries in space science. Offering a little more light, the CalTech team traced FRB 190523 back to a galaxy similar to our own Milky Way, but different from the dwarf galaxy that produced the famous first repeating burst, FRB 121102. Tags “This finding tells us that every galaxy, even a run-of-the-mill galaxy like our Milky Way, can generate an FRB,” says CalTech’s Vikram Ravi, lead author of the new paper in Nature, in a release.Ravi also says future radio telescope arrays like the Deep Synoptic Array, set to open in 2021, will allow researchers to catch and trace many more FRBs.”Astronomers have been chasing FRBs for a decade now, and we’re finally drawing a bead on them. … Now we have a chance of figuring out just what these exotic objects might be.”Whatever the source turns out to be, it’s worth remembering that the mysterious signals traveled billions of years to reach us, so if the explanation is aliens, they’re some very ancient aliens.

Hallinan Since 2007, astronomers have been finding very brief, powerful signals from across the cosmos in observations gathered by radio telescopes. In the past week, researchers pinpointed the location of a non-repeating signal for the first time, and two days later, another group announced they’d discovered nine more. The sources of these so-called “fast radio bursts” remains a mystery, but recently researchers have been honing their ability to locate their origins.On Tuesday, a team using CalTech’s Owens Valley Radio Observatory near Bishop, California, reported that it managed to capture a new, non-repeating signal dubbed FRB 190523 and trace it back to a galaxy nearly 8 billion light-years away.A number of possible explanations for what causes FRBs have been proposed, ranging from powerful neutron stars to extraterrestrial intelligence.An accelerated article preview of the OVRO discovery was published online in the journal Nature, less than a week after an Australian team working with the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder announced it had also traced a non-repeating burst back to its source galaxy, some 4 billion light-years away.

But this year fishermen voted to abandon the competitive fishery in favor of a co-op. That meant a much smaller footprint, with fewer boats, crewmen, tenders, and spotter pilots. The reason? Low prices for roe, for starters. And a strong US dollar that makes all American exports more expensive.Alaska Artist Rie Muñoz Dies At 93 Casey Kelly & Lisa Phu, KTOO – JuneauAlaska artist Rie Munoz passed away last night at Bartlett Regional Hospital in Juneau.

first_imgSansa Stark and Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones season 8Game of Thrones/FacebookIn Game of Thrones season 8 episode 1, we are going to see how Jon Snow will meet Arya Stark after all these years. At the same time, it would be for the first time when Daenerys Targaryen will come face-to-face with Sansa Stark. Game of Thrones’ star Emilia Clarke recently opened up about filming those scenes where her dragons will be seen flying over Winterfell.In the earlier released teaser trailer of Game of Thrones, we saw how Sansa Stark welcomes Daenerys. Although Sansa says, “Winterfell is yours, your Grace!”, it does not look on her face that she is willingly handing over her ancestor’s place to a stranger. In a recent interview with HarpersBazaar, Emilia Clarke talked about Daenerys Targaryen’s meeting with Sansa and how it felt to her to shoot at Winterfell.Game of Thrones season eight is going to be the very first time when Daenerys Targaryen and her army will reach Winterfell. As per Emilia, brining Daenerys to this foreign new place felt really surreal.”You play into what it feels like for the character as well, because it’s new and it’s odd, and you’re coming into someone else’s turf and you’ve got a lot of actors that you know really well, who were like, ‘This is our home.'”Emilia Clarke added that speaking with Sansa Stark felt “very, very exhilarating.” Emilia Clarke, Peter Dinklange, Conleth Hill, Nathalie Emmanuel, Liam Cunningham and Kit Harington in a still from Ep 4 ‘Spoils of War’HBOIn the last seven episodes, Emilia Clarke and Sophie Turner never shared the screen space before. Their individual characters had quite an amazing journey so far and we are sure that in the last season of Game of Thrones, we are going to see them doing some wonderful things together. For Emilia, it was amazing to shoot with Sophie, who has become a very good friend of her.”With all of those scenes meeting new people, it felt like every day was a little party.”Emilia Clarke will be seen playing the role of Daenerys Targaryen for one last time when Game of Thrones will return to HBO this April. With the season eight, fans will finally have the answer to several questions regarding the Dragon Mother like, how she is going to react when she will find out that her lover is actually her nephew; Is she going to sit near the Iron Throne or will she die giving birth to a baby? All these questions will be answered in just a couple of weeks.last_img read more
