Australian great Mike Hussey on Tuesday waxed lyrical about Pakistan’s “brilliant” opening batsman Babar Azam, going as far as saying that he is closing in on the very best players in the world such as Indian captain Virat Kohli and Australian run-machine Steve Smith.Babar scored a scintillating 157 against Australia A on day one of their three-match tour match, and did not add more only because he retired out in order to give other batsmen some practice.Hussey was in awe of Babar following his knock, deeming it “a beautiful innings” in quotes that appeared on Fox Sports websites.“He’s timed the ball magnificently all around the ground.”WATCH: Watch Babar Azam deliver a masterclass in batting against Australia AThe man nicknamed Mr Cricket was so impressed with Azam that he tipped him to soon be rated as the very best in the world, provided that he can put together some big scores.“I honestly believe this guy can be in the same … [Read more...] about Mike Hussey says Babar Azam is as good as Kohli, Smith
Last week, I asked “where did all the good movies on Netflix go?” Now we have our answer: Canada and Brazil. According to analysis by both The Streaming Observer and AddonHQ, Canada and Brazil have the best content ecosystems, when it comes to movies on Netflix. But wWhen it comes to good movies, Brazil is tops. The Streaming Observer found that Brazil had 85 movies from IMDb’s Top 250 in its library. Advertisement The site also put together a ridiculously huge chart if you want to see exactly which movies are available on each service. It’s worth checking out. Brazil has movies that those of us in America could only dream of streaming, like The Godfather Part II, Fight Club, and The Empire Strikes Back. Mexico and Sweden have solid showings too, with 73 and 70 movies from the IMDb’s Top 250 in their respective libraries. On the bottom end, the UK has only 28 movies in the top 250 and us suckers in the US only have 33 out of 250. Canada comes in third … [Read more...] about All the Good Netflix Movies Are in Canada and Brazil
Netflix’s content library isn’t just getting smaller, it’s also increasingly losing its best movies. The Streaming Observer did some analysis, and found that only 31 movies from the IMDb Top 250 are currently available on Netflix. The IMDb Top 250 isn’t a perfect barometer for “best movies ever,” but as crowdsourced film ratings databases go, it’s solid. And hey, The Shawshank Redemption is an excellent film. Advertisement Even worse than the paltry selection of movies, it’s noteworthy that this figure is actually down 12 percent from 2014, when a Reddit user documented the 49 available films from the IMDb Top 250 then available on Netflix. The IMDb Top 250 has changed over the last two years as well, but the decrease in titles is still significant. This isn’t a new phenomenon. Back in 2012, Netflix’s streaming deal with Starz ended, taking more than 2,000 movies (some of them good!) with it. At the time, Starzageddon … [Read more...] about Where Did All the Good Movies on Netflix Go?
brexit countdown_bg Created with Sketch. Top Democrat Nancy Pelosi has threatened to torpedo any post-Brexit trade agreement between the US and UK if it threatens the Good Friday Agreement by creating new checks at the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland. The Trump administration this week enthusiastically backed Prime Minister Boris Johnson's plan to leave the European Union without a deal if necessary on October 31, and offered to cushion any economic hit with an immediate free trade deal. But any agreement would have to pass the U.S. Congress, which is split between Democrats in the House and President Donald Trump's fellow Republicans in the Senate. Democrat speaker Ms Pelosi, who leads the Democrat majority in the House, today vowed to stop a US-UK Brexit trade deal if it undermines the Good Friday agreement. The Irish border is a key Brexit point of contention of Ms Pelosi's allies in the Irish American lobby, Irish PM Leo Varadkar and the European Union. They are all … [Read more...] about Top Democrat Nancy Pelosi threatens to BLOCK a post-Brexit US-UK free trade deal if it ‘undermines the Good Friday accord’ by creating new border checks in Ireland
