This header picture is of Alfredo di Stefano striking a ball in 1956 against Espanyol. Why not?

Speaking of Alfredo di Stefano, this sounds wild:

Speaking of guns, Casemiro walked on some grass today for 27 seconds and talked:

Speaking of Casemiro, what do you guys think of the new Batman trailer? Are we going to be disappointed? Are we already disappointed? Are we hyped? Will we ever see a blockbuster movie in a movie theatre again?

Let’s end off with some good /promising news in the science world:

Venom from honeybees has been found to rapidly kill aggressive and hard-to-treat breast cancer cells, according to potentially ground-breaking new Australian research.

The study also found when the venom’s main component was combined with existing chemotherapy drugs, it was extremely efficient at reducing tumour growth in mice.

Published in the journal Nature Precision Oncology, the research was conducted at Perth’s Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research by Dr Ciara Duffy as part of her PhD.

Dr Duffy hoped the discovery would lead to the development of a treatment for triple-negative breast cancer, which accounts for 10 to 15 per cent of all breast cancers and for which there are currently no clinically effective targeted therapies.

She said the honeybee venom had proven extremely potent.
