Alonso Pledges Future To Madrid








Football: Alonso agrees new two-year deal with Madrid



Xabi Alonso has signed a new two-year Real Madrid CF contract, keeping him at the club until summer 2016. Related Items Alonso hits century in style The 32-year-old Spain midfielder's current deal was due to expire in the summer but his future at theSantiago Bernabeu is now secure. Former Real Sociedad de Futbol captain Alonso joined Madrid in 2009 from Liverpool FC and has made more than 200 appearances for the club, winning the 2010/11 Copa del Rey and 2011/12 Liga, while also helping Spain to victory at UEFA EURO 2008, the 2010 FIFA World Cup and UEFA EURO 2012, during which he passed 100 caps. A 2005 UEFA Champions League winner with Liverpool, Alonso will aim to emulate that with Madrid this season as they prepare to face FC Schalke 04 in the round of 16 on 26 February and 18 March.

Spanish media reported that the former Liverpool man will earn six million euros (US$8.2 million, 5 million) net a season, a two million euro increase on his previous deal. Alonso's start to the current campaign had been disrupted by a groin injury and breaking a bone in his foot in August. However, since his return at the end of October, his importance to Carlo Ancelotti's side has been immense as Real have embarked on a 13-game unbeaten run. After starting his career at Basque side Real Sociedad, Alonso was signed by compatriot Rafael Benitez for Liverpool in 2004 for 10.5 million. He became a fans' favourite during his five years in Merseyside and famously scored the equaliser as Liverpool came from 3-0 down at half-time to beat AC Milan on penalties in the 2005 Champions League final. <br>More: http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/sport/football-alonso-agrees/947666.html

The 32-year-old had drawn interest from a number of clubs across Europe with his former deal set to expire in June. Juventus, PSG, Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United and Liverpool were believed to have expressed an interest in the Spain international, but he is now tied to Madrid until June 2016. "This will continue to be my home for two more years. A pleasure to let you know. Very, very happy," read a statement that Alonso released via his twitter external link account. The club also confirmed the news with a brief statement, saying: "Real Madrid communicates the extension of the contract linking Xabi Alonso with the club for two more seasons, until June 30, 2016." Alonso joined Madrid in the summer of 2009 from Liverpool for $40 million and has helped the club win a La Liga title, one Copa del Rey and a Spanish Supercup. <br>More: http://www.foxnews.com/sports/2014/01/08/alonso-signs-madrid-extension/





Alonso signs Madrid extension



The Spain international had delayed re-signing with Madrid with his contract up in June amid reported interest from English club Chelsea and Juventus in Italy. Alonso won one Spanish league title with Madrid, which did not release the financial terms of the new contract. The 32-year-old Alonso has been a key figure in Madrid's squad with 204 appearances since his 2009/10 arrival from Liverpool, where he won the Champions League in 2005. The former Real Sociedad player has helped Spain win the World Cup between back-to-back European championships. Copyright 2014 Associated Press .

Xabi Alonso signs 2-year extension with Real Madrid



Karim Benzema eventually broke the deadlock thanks to a Jese cross, before Cristiano Ronaldo punished a dispirited Celta with two more goals in the final ten minutes. For much of the first half, and the opening 15 minutes of the second period, Los Blancos probed, but were unable to find a way through. Celta manager Luis Enrique abandoned his favored 4-3-3 formation and had his team set up as a 4-1-4-1. The fullbacks stayed well back, not even venturing past the half way line until Jonny Castro overlapped in the 31st minute, while Borja Oubina served as the deepest midfielder, adding an extra body in defense. Via Sky Sports This picture illustrates Celta's two lines of four, with Oubina nestled in between and, in this case, sticking close to Ronaldo. <br>More: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1915112-film-focus-reviewing-real-madrid-vs-celta-vigo-how-jese-and-bale-changed-game

"It's not like I was doing it on purpose for an extended period of time."

Ray J Drops 'i Hit It First' Video, Starring Kim Kardashian's Lo










The Kim K. Look-A-Like There are a number of model types that Ray J could have chosen for this video, but he was clearly going for a certain effect. The "One Wish" singer told New York's Hot 97 that folks were "going way too deep" into the meaning of the song, but the fact that he chose a curvy, olive-toned, dark-haired model with the patented Kim K ponytail says otherwise. There are a number of women who pattern their look after the most-famous Kardashian, but the sexless sex-tape scenes, the basketball-dunking Kris Humphries twin and an "F Network" reality show are just too hard to ignore. <br>More: http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1706479/ray-j-i-hit-it-first-video-kim-kardashian.jhtml

Even though the achievement gap remains a persistent problem in Columbia schools, the district is performing well compared with others in the state and the nation, according to an August 2013 news release from Columbia Public Schools.

Hollywood Has Finally Figured Out Your Weakness For New Releases












They definitely dont want to spend 30 minutes toggling through the maze of suggestions served up by 'teen Mom' Farrah Abraham Says She's ‘happy’ With Sex Tape Sale, Looks Forward To ‘completing My Master’s Degree’ theNetflix ( NFLX ) algorithm: Business Documentaries, Cult Sports Movies, and the always encouraging Random Picks. Hollywoodas well asApple ( AAPL ) andAmazon.com ( AMZN click here! )is finally starting to realize that couch-bound consumers are willing to spend handsomely for new and immediate film fare. Online movie sales surged 47 percent last year, more than offsetting DVD Catholic Bishops Pray To Relieve Dry California declines, according to a new study by Digital Entertainment Group, an industry trade group. The bulk of the sales increase comes from people buying movies in the slim one-week to four-week window between when they are available for digital purchase and when they are available to rent online. The staggered-release strategy, though relatively new, is commanding a slice of commerce that is by far the fastest-growing category in the home-entertainment business. Heres how Ron Sanders, home entertainment president at Warner Brothers ( TWX ), described it to the Wall Street Journal: Weve seen a fundamental shift in consumer behavior based on that early digital availability. Its not that the film industry has been underestimating consumers willingness to pay (the online movies are often cheaper than DVD copies). And its not that studios have been overestimating their willingness to wait (though thats getting closer to the crux of the matter). Its just that on-demand technology creates the perfect environment for poor economic decisions. <br>Full story: http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2014-01-08/hollywood-has-finally-figured-out-your-weakness-for-new-releases

With Houston's History Of Wonderful Belgian Food, Why Is Café Br










Regional Budget Minister Guy Vanhengel revealed in parliament recently that the total number of households in Brussels due to pay the annual EUR89 (USD121) lump sum tax rose from 515,699 in 2009 to 535,508 in 2013. Yet despite the increase in taxable households, the number of payments received actually fell significantly, from 318,255 recorded in 2009 to 308,526 in 2012 (latest figures). Therefore, even though the number of taxable households increased, revenue declined. This paradox is as a result of an "explosion" in the number of exemptions accorded by the Region. According to the leader of the Humanist Democratic Center (CDH) group in the Brussels parliament, Benoit Cerexhe, the number of exemptions from the regional tax has increased three times as fast as the rise in the number of contributing households. Highlighting a lack http://pittmanwugt.tblog.com/post/1971185547 of tax compliance, Cerexhe pointed out that only 57 percent of households settle their regional tax obligation. <br>More: http://www.tax-news.com/news/Brussels_Regional_Tax_Yield_Dips_Despite_Demographic_Boom____63286.html

The real effects of the European elections may be felt in London and Edinburgh rather than in Brussels



In countries with national elections within roughly a year of May 2014, the national results of the European elections, and particularly the interpretation of them by the media, will be taken as indicators for the upcoming campaign to fight of new challengers and (re)gain volatile electorates. This will be the case in Hungary, which holds national elections on June 30 (although recent changes to the election laws have made these a shoo-in for the ruling Fidesz party), and Sweden, where parliamentary elections are scheduled for Sept. 14. Of most importance free to the future of Europe, however, will be British parliamentary elections, currently scheduled for May 7, 2015.
