Fascinating magical novel "THE HARRY POTTER'  He’ll be famous – a legend – I wouldn’t be surprised if today was known as Harry Potter Day in future – there will be books written about Harry – every child in our world will know his name!'

(From Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone)
 
It starts with Dumbledore, Professor McGonagall and Rubeus Hagrid leaving a baby boy, with a tuft of jet-black hair and a curiously shaped wound on his brow, on the doorstep of number four, Privet Drive. They might have thought that his aunt and uncle would look after him kindly. But ten years later, Harry Potter sleeps in a cupboard under the stairs, and the Dursleys – Vernon, Petunia and their son Dudley – don’t exactly treat him like one of the family. Especially as it becomes clear quite how different from them he is.

As his eleventh birthday arrives, the time comes for Harry Potter to discover the truth about his magical beginnings – and embark on the enthralling, unmissable adventure that will lead him to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, his true friends Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, powerful secrets and a destiny he cannot avoid ...

J.K. Rowling’s first novel, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, was published in 1997. In seven extraordinary books published over ten years, Harry’s story became a massive worldwide bestseller, breaking all records and winning the devotion of legions of fans. The novels have been translated into 80 languages, sold over 500 million copies, and made into 8 blockbuster films.

Who is better "Messi or Ronaldo"? MESSI OR RONALDO?
The current era of soccer is dominated by two giants: Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona’s Lionel Messi.

 Ronaldo is a machine. He is an explosive player, with abnormal physical abilities and a huge amount of talent. Tall and strong and certainly one of the greatest players.

 Messi is a virtuoso, a magician. His dribbling is considered to be the best the game has ever seen, and he passes and shoots the ball with theprecision of a brain surgeon. He makes eye-popping moves that leave people speechless and overwhelmed. Seeing him weave his way through a team’s defense and then put the ball past the keeper is just something special.

Ronaldo is more advanced player
Nowadays, soccer is more dynamic and athletic than ever. The game has become faster, stronger and more demanding in most aspects of physicality. While Messi might have more talent, Ronaldo’s combination of physical and technical abilities just makes him better.

Messi has a better supporting cast
Messi has won more titles since he plays for a better team, not because he is a better player than Ronaldo. Throughout his entire career, Messi played for arguably the best side to ever play the game. Unlike Ronaldo’s team experiences, Messi’s Barcelona teammates know each other blindly, since most of them have played together since they were 10 years old, always the same style and formation.

Ronaldo doesn’t possess Messi’s magic.

Messi is not only an incredible scorer and gifted playmaker, he also makes everyone around him a better player. A true leader, he brings his team together. Not only does he have more assists and key passes than Ronaldo, he is always using his phenomenal vision to keep his teammates involved. He has great tactical intelligence, finding free spaces to move into, receiving the ball and then laying it off to a team-mate, to build attacks.

While Ronaldo is a more of an executor, who plays high up the pitch and scores great goals when given the chance, Messi, who can do that just as well, but is also comfortable dropping deep and keeping possession of the ball with his team. From these positions, he can send his colleagues on dangerous runs with pin-point passes. This versatility makes him that much better than Ronaldo.

                                                   MESSI IS BETTER THAN RONALDO

Top 10 hairstyle for men 1. Undercut Hairstyle

Short on the sides, longer on top. That’s the essence of a classic undercut, which works with various styles of men’s hair (curly, wavy, straight, etc). You can sculpt the top hair as you see fit, slicking it back or spiking it up or anything in between.
From a general perspective, there are two overarching types of men’s undercuts: disconnected and faded. If you’ve seen Cillian Murphy’s handsome hairstyle in “Peaky Blinders,” then you know all about the disconnected undercut. It’s distinguished by a sharp contrast or clear divide between the shorter and longer hair.
A fade undercut, meanwhile, gradually tapers as the short sides climb toward the top. The result is a somewhat greater sense of uniformity or flow.


2. Textured Pompadour Haircut

Here’s a top men’s haircut that seems like it should have gone out of style at some point, but never has. And if you think it looks dated, we’ll let you be the one to inform David Beckham, who’s no stranger to the pompadour. Of course, Elvis Presley remains the most iconic celebrity to rock this famous haircut, which has remained in vogue since the days of “Jailhouse Rock.”
Like an undercut or fade, the men’s pompadour generally features short hair on the sides and longer hair on top. What distinguishes this style from others is the healthy volume of swept-up hair at the front, which gradually recedes toward the back. Its popular cousin, the almighty quiff, strikes a similarly stylish accord.


3. Side-Part Hairstyle

Just how timeless is the men’s side part, you ask? Timeless enough to straddle six decades or more, as evidenced by the perennial appeal of Don Draper’s slicked back approach.
A business world staple, the side part requires a decent amount of length and volume and works best with thick, straight hair. The most quintessential example involves a taper on the sides and longer hair on top.
Using a little product and a comb, sweep the top hair toward one side. Voila! Side part. If you want a more conservative look, ask your barber for a low fade.


4. Short Curly Hair with a Trimmed Beard

Epically long beards are all the rage these days, but we’re not convinced they won’t one day be viewed as a relic of their time (they’re kind of retro in the first place, after all). The well-trimmed beard, however, makes for a solid look no matter what the era. Pair that trimmed beard with a head of short, thick, and curly hair to achieve a style that’s equal parts approachable and masculine.


5. Buzz Cut

True to its name, the buzz cut puts the electric buzzer to use, going short on all sides. It wades in and out of popular culture on a regular basis, but never really stops trending. Brad Pitt and David Beckham are just two among a broad number of celebrities to give this classic cut its proper due.
Needless to say, no list of the best men’s haircuts is complete without the buzz cut. After all, who doesn’t love a hairstyle that requires little to no maintenance? On the other hand, you should remain conscious of the cut as a style statement. Consider pairing it with edgy or even aggressive get-ups, thereby heightening its overtly masculine qualities.


6. Caesar Cut

If a men’s haircut has been in style since the days of Roman emperors, one can safely assume its status won’t be changing anytime soon. Distinguished by short layered hair with a tight horizontal fringe, the Caesar Cut conjures associations with power and authority. To give this centuries-old haircut a modern upgrade, incorporate a fade around the sides.


7. Messy Waves Hairstyle

Best described as purposefully unkempt, the messy waves hairstyle requires more maintenance and intent than first meets the eye. Take a little product and get to work with those strands, aiming for a look that falls somewhere between sculpted and casual. You’re so cool.


8. Short Dreads

If there was a time when short dreads were anything but awesome, we aren’t aware of it. Once popularised by painter Jean-Michel Basquiat, this men’s hairstyle requires copious amounts of time and control. If you don’t know what you’re doing, it’s best to put your hair in the hands of a barber. While we’re on the subject: long dreadlocks are pretty amazing as well.


9. Slicked Back Haircut

Like the trusty side part, the slicked back haircut has been a mainstay in the business world for decades. As such, it remains synonymous with the utmost tier of power and professionalism.
However, it seems that with each passing year the slicked back cut becomes a tad less slick. On that note, a quick word of advice: don’t overdo it with hair product. You want a look that’s voluminous and natural, not brittle.


10. Long Wavy Hair

We might have poked fun at 80s glam metal haircuts in the introduction, but don’t let that deter you from growing out your god-given follicles. In fact, if you’re among the few and lucky men who can pull off the long and wavy look, you should do just that. Synonymous with virility, it’s a men’s hairstyle that draws all the right eyeballs in your direction.

Drink Up
The next essential is a water bottle, with a cage for holding it on your bike. If you ride with much gusto, it's easy to go through a full water bottle or more each hour. Your body's the engine. It needs liquid lubrication. Not only does perspiration cause fluid loss, but a lot of moisture is exhaled as you roll along. A lot of racers use large bottles, and carry two or more bottles on their bikes. There are even water-carrying systems which can be carried on your back. Your dealer can help you decide what is best.

Stuff to Wear
You can wear most anything to ride a bike. But, clothes especially designed for riding are a wonder. In terms of comfort and function, top-quality bicycle apparel is incredibly well-matched to the task of riding.
In order of priority, apparel-related purchases could be a helmet and shoes (which we've already discussed), gloves, and some sort of eye protection. The helmet and gloves top the list, because they help to protect you from the ground in case of a fall. Eye protection, such as goggles, keeps bugs and dirt out of your eyes, which also has safety implications. Shoes are so darned practical that they can't be ignored either. Beyond that, there's a whole world of dazzling clothes that can help make you a more efficient, more comfortable, and safer rider.

Coronavirus journey: The last cruise carrying passengers returns home After months at sea, the final cruise ship carrying passengers makes it home



(CNN) — After a six-month odyssey around the world, during which it was hit by coronavirus and saw the oceans dramatically empty of other vessels, the last cruise liner still carrying passengers has made its final port of call, delivering its eight guests to a world vastly changed from the one they set sail in.

The MV Artania cruise ship tied up in the Germany port of Bremerhaven on Monday, operator Phoenix Reisen confirmed to CNN Travel, bringing an end an epic return voyage from Australia that saw the ship make numerous diversions en route to drop off crew members.

All eight passengers still on board were due to disembark by midday local time.

Artania's arrival comes more than two months after the last major leisure ships carrying significant numbers of passengers were taken out of commission, as the cruise industry slammed the brakes on sailing amid the global pandemic.

While the Costa Deliziosa, the MSC Magnifica and the Pacific Princess -- the final significant vessels overseen by industry group Cruise Lines International Association -- docked in April, Artania kept on sailing, the end of its journey still weeks away.

The ship, which can carry up to 1,200 passengers, set sail on an 140-day world cruise from Hamburg, Germany on December 21, 2019.

In March, coronavirus caught up with the cruise when 36 passengers tested positive for the virus following a check from Australian health officials when the ship arrived in in Fremantle, Western Australia.

Those affected were quarantined in local hospitals, according to Phoenix Reisen.

Three people who were on the ship have since died -- two male passengers, one aged 69 and one aged 71, and one 42-year-old male crew member.

The Artania's healthy guests stayed quarantined on the Artania until their repatriation flights at the end of March. Hundreds of Artania passengers, the majority of whom were German, flew back from Western Australia to Frankfurt, a handful stayed in hospital in Australia to recover.

And eight passengers decided to travel back home via ocean, rather than via airplane. These travelers were subsequently granted the surreal status of becoming the last cruise ship passengers at sea.

They watched the world change, countries lock down and reopen again, all while they remained at sea, the last cruisers of the world's oceans.

But while the journey home to Europe after Artania left Australia on April 18 should've taken a few weeks, it was extended by stop offs in Southeast Asia in order to repatriate many of its remaining crew members.

Some European crew had been able to fly home from Perth to Frankfurt alongside passengers. The rest of the crew remained on the ship, with the Artania making calls in Bali and Manila to allow workers to return home.

Around 75 crew members stayed on board until Bremerhaven to help ensure smooth operation of the ship.
