Eto’o makes his Ballon d’Or prediction: Messi then Neymar

first_img “Neymar has huge potential. After the domination of Messi and Cristiano [ends], he will surely be the No.1. Antalyaspor player-manager Samuel Eto’o has given an interview to ESPN, during which, among other things, he spoke about the Ballon d’Or, Lionel Messi and Neymar.  Sport EN Upd. at 19:52 “He he has to remember, though, that [his future] depends heavily on everything that he does.  Eto’o said he is sure how the Ballon d’Or podium will line up next month: “First place will be for Messi, Neymar will be second and then Cristiano Ronaldo will be third,” he said, before tipping Neymar to have a splendid future in the game.  24/12/2015 “When the team was winning, that was my responsibility, but when losing, you’re singled out by the press and the fans as the one responsible for all the problems,” he indicated. “He has talent and he now has to train, train and train, because you can’t succeed with talent alone.”  Eto’o pointed out the responsibility that comes with wearing No.10 when you play for Brazil, a situation similar to the one he experienced with Cameroon.  CETlast_img read more

Shining a light on disability sector

first_imgThey are 40 per cent more likely than women without disabilities to be the victims of domestic violence and more than 70 per cent of women with disabilities have been victims of violent sexual encounters at some time in their lives. Michael Wright has been working tirelessly behind the scenes raising awareness about the prevalence of violence against women with a disability.“I am a White Ribbon Ambassador and am really passionate about this cause,” Michael said. “Violence against women with disability is something that isn’t really spoken about, yet every female with a disability will likely experience some sort of violence against them in their lifetime. “That’s the reason why we’ve been putting on events to raise awareness about the issue and to get people talking about it.” As a person living with a disability himself, Michael was shocked when he learned about the frequency of violence against disabled women. “When I started working with Outlook and learned about the violence it changed my views so much. “Violence against women living with a disability can come in all forms and in more ways than just physical violence. It can be carers withholding money, refusing to let them out of the house and just generally restricting their lives. “It made me realise that I can’t sit back, I have to get out there and change it. The current culture is not acceptable.” Michael’s particular focus is on how everyone can play a part using their own unique gifts and the role they can play as a local community member. “We are all unique in our own way and have our own skills to bring to the table. For example, I’m an IT guy so I like to make videos and use my computer skills creatively.“We all have our own bit of expertise and skills we can use to our advantage.” Michael was invited to the Together We Can summit last year as a representative of Outlook. “Together We Can is amazing because it brings all different organisations and people together.” Women with disability experience violence at significantly higher rates, more frequently, for longer, in more ways and by more perpetrators compared to women and girls without disability, according to the Australian Human Rights Commission. last_img read more
