She cautioned, however, that they could attempt to imitate scenes showing such acts without parental supervision.“Movies or TV shows should not be solely blamed when children commit juvenile delinquency, because parents can deter them from [such acts] by monitoring their viewing [habits],” Retno told The Jakarta Post on Tuesday.She also pointed out that parents should teach t… Linkedin murder murder-case Jakarta-police Central-Jakarta West-Jakarta mental-healthlast_img read more

I reminded her that we have more time left in this term than we’ve been here, and there’s still plenty to be accomplished.“Dr. McCormick has given me a lot to digest as I dig into her legislative priorities. I thanked her and told her today I appreciate and respect her lifetime devotion to children and education, and that we’ll take the steps necessary to ensure Indiana has the best team working together to provide the highest quality education for children.”last_img read more

That is because the Rooneys are set to install a £150,000 walk-in wine room in their new £20million Cheshire mansion currently being built. Gerrard – who preceded fellow Merseysider Rooney as England captain – also liked a beer or two with pals. But things spilled over in Southport in December 2008 when he was caught up in a bar brawl although the Liverpool legend was cleared of affray. Rodallega scored 24 goals in 117 Wigan appearances between 2009 and 2012 before moving to Fulham where he grabbed 19 in 84 – in one of his first games for the Cottagers he accidentally gave Rooney a horror gash in his knee after catching him with a flailing boot. He moved to Turkey in 2015 with a switch to Akhisar Belediyespor which was followed by a spell at Trabzonspor. The forward then joined Denizlispor at the beginning of the current campaign. His six goals have helped the club to tenth with the season put on hold. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Former Wigan striker, Hugo Rodallega, has claimed he often saw Wayne Rooney “drinking like a madman” and Steven Gerrard “dancing on a bar topless” on nights out. The striker, 34, spent six-and-a-half years in England, with three-and-a-half of those in the North-West at the Latics. And he sensationally revealed during an Instagram Live he would regularly spot the Three Lions heroes enjoying themselves. Speaking to friend and fellow Colombian footballer Johan Arango, Rodallega said: “If people knew how many times I bumped into Rooney in Manchester drinking like a madman or the number of times I saw Gerrard on a bar dancing shirtless… “They are human beings, there is nothing wrong with it. “I can count with one hand the number of footballers who don’t drink. All of them, all of us, go out and drink. “I have always said it. I enjoy drinking and dancing. I love salsa dancing. “There is nothing wrong with it. I know we are footballers, but we are human beings too.” Rooney has regularly been spotted on nights out throughout his career, sometimes landing him in a spot of trouble.last_img read more

Whelan: Double-header is crucial

Press Association Glenn Whelan believes next month’s World Cup qualifying meetings with Sweden and Austria will be among the most important games he has played in a green shirt. And Sunderland defender John O’Shea, who saw Brady come through the ranks at Old Trafford, believes he can go from strength to strength. “He has the exuberance of a real confident player and it is really showing in his football,” he said. “You can see the ability he has got. He was only getting rare glimpses at United, but he is getting it regularly now. “He has a real taste for it and I am sure he will be good for us and for Hull City.” The Stoke midfielder won his 50th cap for Ireland in their goalless draw with Wales in Cardiff on Wednesday night. The 29-year-old could have marked the occasion with a goal, but dragged well wide after being teed up smartly by Robbie Brady. Having enjoyed his landmark appearance for Ireland, Whelan quickly turned his attention to next month’s double-header, which will go a long way to deciding whether Giovanni Trapattoni’s side get to contest a play-off for a spot in the finals. Whelan helped Ireland successfully qualify for Euro 2012, but with Sweden and Austria locked with them on 11 points, the games in Dublin and Vienna are as important as any he has been a part of. “It was great to get my 50th cap,” he said. “It was not something I ever expected and it was good for us to get a result, even though we had the chances to win it. “Now we have two massive games next month, it is the most crucial double-header we have had during my time in the team. “We can still do it, but we can only focus on that first game against Sweden and getting the win we need. “Everyone will know after those games if we have a big chance of going to Brazil or not.” One of the bright points of Ireland’s performance in Cardiff was the display of Hull midfielder Brady. The 21-year-old Manchester United product was a lively presence, showcasing some nice footwork and incisive passing. read more
