first_imgNZ Herald 8 November 2018Family First Comment: And this is how wacky things will get when we ignore biological reality…“When I’m on Tinder and it says I’m 69, I don’t get an answer. When I’m 49, with the face I have, I will be in a luxurious position. Transgender people can now have their gender changed on their birth certificate, and in the same spirit there should be room for an age change.” The Dutchman said he is discriminated against because of his age on a daily basis.Getting harder to argue against these days!….A 69-year-old Dutchman is battling to legally reduce his age by 20 years so he can get more work and attract more women on Tinder.Emile Ratelband argues that if transgender people are allowed to change sex, he should be allowed to change his date of birth because doctors said he has the body of a 45-year-old.The motivational speaker, a media personality in the Netherlands, is suing his local authority after they refused to amend his age on official documents, according to the Daily Mail.Mr Ratelband’s case has now gone to a court in the city of Arnhmen in the eastern Dutch province of Gelderland.He was born on 11 March, 1949, but says he feels at least 20 years younger and wants to change his birth date to 11 March, 1969.Mr Ratelband, who has converted to Buddhism, said: “I have done a check-up and what does it show?

Spurs agree Soldado deal

first_img The Primera Division club’s president Amadeo Salvo last week warned Spurs they would have to meet the 30million euro (£26million) buy-out clause if they were to pry the striker away. That fee would see Tottenham break the club transfer record set when they signed Paulinho for £17million from Corinthians earlier in the summer. Confirming the Soldado move, a statement on the Tottenham official website said: “We are delighted to announce that we have reached agreement with Valencia for the transfer of Roberto Soldado subject to medical.” President Salvo initially said Los Che had no intention of selling Soldado, although it became clear on Wednesday that his departure was edging closer. “The agreement with Tottenham is total,” president Salvo was quoted as saying at a restaurant in La Patacona by lasprovincias.es. “A problem has arisen with the (player’s) agents,” he added. “(If it is resolved) he will go.” Soldado impressed at Valencia after joining from Getafe three years ago, plundering 80 goals during his 146 appearances for the Mestalla club. He netted 24 goals in La Liga last season and has become an established member of the Spanish national team, whom he helped to runner-up spot at this summer’s Confederations Cup. Soldado hails from Valencia but began his career at Real Madrid, scoring 63 goals in 120 league appearances for the B side, Real Madrid Castilla. He also represented the senior team on 16 occasions. The Spaniard’s impending arrival boosts a Spurs strike force that was found light last season, with Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor the first-team’s only out-an-out attackers. Gareth Bale was sometimes played in a more advanced role but Tottenham are in the midst of a fight to keep him from the clutches of Real Madrid, who are reportedly willing to pay a world-record fee for the Wales international. Press Association Tottenham have agreed a deal to sign Valencia striker Roberto Soldado, subject to a medical.center_img The north Londoners’ need for attacking reinforcements has been well documented, as has their desire to bring in the Spain international. And the club took a significant step towards getting their man by confirming a fee had been struck for the 28-year-old, who has been a prolific goalscorer in the Primera Division. last_img read more

PCP – Next Yankee’s manager

first_imgVoelkel Says:With Joe Torre’s job security in New York still up in the air, it might be time for the Yankees and George Steinbrenner to look in another direction to lead the club in 2008 and beyond. But who to choose? The opportunity to manage one of the most premier and storied franchises in baseball (not to mention, all of sports) would surely be enough of a carrot to lure just about anyone King George wants to the home dugout.The Yankees job isn’t for any old manager, however. If the Yankees are to get rid of Torre — a manager whom players almost unanimously (except for Gary Sheffield) seem to rally around and respect — the front office needs to hire someone with enough clout that even the hot-shot millionaire players of today will respect and listen to.The Yankees should hire none other than Jay-Z — a Yankees fan — to be the new skipper.With everyone on the Yankees seemingly making eight figures, many of the players would find it difficult to listen to some newbie manager making less than the tenured bat boy and whose experience in the spotlight is limited. With Jay-Z at the helm, he instantly becomes the biggest name on the team. When was the last time A-Rod ever released a 5-time platinum album, let alone come up with a big hit in the postseason? Even better, Jay-Z could revamp the Yankees old and tired pinstripe uniforms by outfitting the team with a new look courtesy of his Rocawear brand. If he ever needed to give a speech before a big game, he could pump the team up by rapping the pep talk.What the Yankees definitely don’t need is a manager as old as Yankee Stadium itself. All Zimmer would do is keep the Yankees in the same rut of 90-95 win seasons and early-round playoff exits, while being a constant reminder of when they choked away the series against the Red Sox.Jay-Z. Get that dirt off ya sholdas! Hagstrum Says:Whether Joe Torre is fired or allowed to walk away with his dignity, the odds are that the longtime Yankees manager won’t be back in ’08. While George Steinbrenner determines Torre’s fate, I took the liberty of finding a replacement for the man who led the Yankees to four World Series Championships during his reign. He’s a former Yankee, so the team won’t have difficulty rallying behind him, and he’s a got a fire in his belly to take on pitchers less than half his age. I’m talking about Don Zimmer. Zimmer, or “ZIM” as you might remember him for wearing an army helmet in the dugout the game after Chuck Knoblauch drilled him with a foul ball, would immediately send a message to his overpaid players to stand up and fight for what they believe in, even if it means being tossed aside by Pedro Martinez during a bench-clearing brawl. Sure, Torre brought the Yankees to six AL pennants and the playoffs every season since he arrived in 1996, but how can you go wrong with Zimmer who managed the Red Sox during “the Boston Massacre”? The Sox lost that year to answer every Yankees fan’s dream. Zimmer can do that. Plus, at the ripe young age of 76 and with a quarter of his mind left (he nearly died after being hit in the head with a pitch during his playing days), Zimmer will forget he’s the Yankees manager. Hence he won’t fold under the high-stress pressure to win with a $215 million payroll (if he can feel anything at all). Who needs Torre when you can have Jabba the Hutt?Out with the old and in with the … older. Make the right choice. Vote Zimmer.last_img read more
