Catholic Cardinal Sentenced in Australia For Sexual Offenses

A Catholic, Cardinal George Pell has been found guilty of sexual offences in Australia. 

Pell was accused of abusing two choir boys in the rooms of a Melbourne cathedral in 1996, a jury found but he had pleaded not guilty.

The verdict had been handed down in December, but it could not be reported until now due to legal reasons.

As Vatican treasurer, the 77-year-old cardinal is one of the Church's most powerful officials.

His trial was heard twice last year because a first jury failed to reach a verdict. The second jury has now convicted him of five charges.

Cardina George Pell face sentenced on Wednesday and that makes him the highest-ranking Catholic figure to receive such a conviction.

La Liga President Welcomes Jose Mourinho To La Liga.

La Liga President Javier Tebas has said former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is welcomed should he decide to make a return to the Spanish topflight.  

Mourinho ended Barcelona’s three-year dominance of La Liga under Pep Guardiola by guiding Real Madrid to the title in the 2011-12 season, and is remembered fondly at the Bernabeu.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez reportedly wants Mourinho to return to the club, despite appointing Santiago Solari as head coach until 2021. “It would not be a bad thing for La Liga,” Tebas told Catalan radio station RAC1, when asked about a potential return to Spain for Mourinho.

“He is a fantastic coach who has many qualities and it would be a great spectacle, it would be fantastic to have him here, but who knows what club would it be.” Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar has also been linked with a return to La Liga at either Barcelona or Real Madrid.

REAKING: Bernie Sanders announces run for US presidency in 2020

Bernie Sanders, the US independent senator from Vermont whose 2016 presidential campaign helped energize the progressive movement and reshaped the Democratic party, has entered the 2020 race for the White House.


In an email to supporters on Tuesday morning, Sanders, a self-styled Democratic socialist who spent much of his nearly 30-year congressional career as an outsider on the political fringe, cast his candidacy as a way to accomplish the mission he started three years ago when he ran against Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination.

“Together, you and I and our 2016 campaign began the political revolution,” he said. “Now, it is time to complete that revolution and implement the vision that we fought for.”

Sanders, 77, running as a Democrat again, believes he can prevail in a crowded and diverse field that includes several female and minority candidates, then beat Donald Trump, whom he called in the email “the most dangerous president in modern American history”.

Chyna Is Being Inducted Into WWE Hall of Fame 2 Years After Her Death

Legendary WWE female wrestler Chyna is being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame next month as a founding member of D-Generation X (DX). 

While fans are thrilled the late wrestler is getting recognized, several are not happy that she is being inducted as part of a six-person faction, rather than a “singles competitor.”

The announcement came from ESPN’s Tim Fiorvanti, who revealed that Chyna would be joined by Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Road Dogg, Billy Gunn and X-Pac in the DX group. The group was originally formed in ’97 as a trio featuring Triple H, Michaels and Chyna. They “collectively helped bring crotch chops and ‘suck it’ into the pop culture mainstream during the peak of its powers,” according to ESPN.

“I think it’s the most meaningful for us all to go in together and to be recognized together,” Paul “Triple H” Levesque told the outlet. “It’d be tough to pick a female that was more impactful on the business. She did something that was completely so out of left field that it wasn’t even being considered when we first brought it up for her to come in. It wasn’t even a consideration … it wasn’t an easy thing, and against all odds she did all of that. She earned everybody’s trust. She won over the fans. She won over the boys. She did all of it,” he added of Chyna.

EPL: Liverpool Regain Top Spot After Defeating Bournemouth At Home

Liverpool stormed back to the top of the Premier League with a dominant 3-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday.  


Sadio Mane scored for the fourth consecutive top-flight match in the 24th minute, after which point Jurgen Klopp's side kicked into top gear to banish the memory of their lacklustre back-to-back draws against Leicester City and West Ham.
Mane opened the scoring in both of those games as well, but fabulously worked goals from the returning Georginio Wijnaldum and Mohamed Salah ensured there was no chance of another wobble.
Manchester City will return to the summit on goal difference if they beat Chelsea on Sunday. Such fine margins being at play mean Klopp might have liked to see a few more added to their tally as his team cut Bournemouth apart at will.
