One of Brazil's Olympians was born when it was illegal for women to play soccer; Annoying serve; Shooting with style
When Formiga was born in 1978, it was illegal (as in against the law) for Brazilian women to play soccer. That law existed from 1941 to 1981. So when we talk about women’s sports being willfully held back by men for decades, that’s the important context of Formiga’s story. https://t.co/0kAUp9YJeq— Anthony DiCicco (@DiCiccoMethod) July 21, 2021

London-based Zodiac Maritime, part of Israeli billionaire Eyal Ofer’s Zodiac Group, said the attack killed two crew members, one from the United Kingdom and the other from Romania. It did not name them, nor did it describe what happened in the assault.
Without providing evidence, Israeli officials alleged that Iran carried out the attack.
The incident is the latest in a series of attacks on Israeli- and Iranian-owned or managed cargo ships since late February, for which the two regional rivals have accused each other of responsibility.
The amphibious assault ship burned for more than four days. Left with extensive structural, electrical and mechanical damage, the ship was later scrapped. Estimates to replace it ran up to $4 billion.
About 160 sailors and officers were on board

Ash’s design was the one who took me the longest. The main inspiration was a mix between Lili’s dress from legend and Eddie the head from Iron Maiden . It’s a theme I love the most to mix Eros and thanatos #legend pic.twitter.com/RtwfBqkwI9

Matt is a mix of a lot of inspirations.
I modeled his teenage self after the only black boy of my middle school, back in the 90’s north of France.
But his knight self was inspired by a lot of different illustrations by legendary illustrator Angus McBride. pic.twitter.com/FRvvnR3Onk

"Several robberies involving digital currency have taken place in Hong Kong this year."
CCTV shows the alleged thief, grey-haired and wearing a light-grey suit, white shirt and tie, arriving at the store about 5.10pm on Tuesday. Shortly afterwards he was filmed leaving the shop with a white bag of jewels and gemstones and departing on a green scooter that he had left parked outside
potential witnesses at a nearby cafe told Le Parisien they saw and heard nothing. Many were reportedly distracted by the presence of one-time screen hard man and martial arts specialist Jean-Claude Van Damme at the nearby opticians.
The International Space Station lost attitude control for close to an hour today after the new Russian science module docked
at 12:45 p.m. EDT (1645 GMT), thrusters on Nauka fired "inadvertently and unexpectedly"
The unplanned thruster firing caused the orbiting laboratory to tilt by about 45 degrees from its proper orientation before the station was able to right itself, Navias said. All told, the station lost attitude control for a total of about 47 minutes, according to NASA officials.
The space station automatically recognized that Nauka's thrusters were sending the orbiting laboratory askew and ordered the Zvezda module to fire its own thrusters to compensate, a process completed by the robotic Russian Progress 78 cargo ship, which is also docked to the space station.
After the station regained its proper position, Nauka's overseers in Russia began work to ensure the thrusters would not fire mistakenly again
