Penelope Disick, 7, Piggybacks Brother Reign, 4, As Kourtney Escapes To Kanye’s Wyoming Ranch — Pics – Hollybaby

November 9th, 2019

Kourtney Kardashian was enjoying a weekend in the country at Kanye West’s $14 million Wyoming ranch!

Kourtney Kardashian, 40, escaped the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles for a low key family weekend. The mom-of-three shared the cutest family photos and videos as they took in the relaxing scenery in Wyoming — including a hilarious video of her 7-year-old daughter Penelope Disick giving her little brother Reign, 4, a piggy back! Sweet Reign was all smiles as he rocked a beanie that read “Tuff Crowd” while stylish P — who also goes by the nickname Poosh — ran as fast as she could in her stylish cowboy boots! 9-year-old Mason also appeared to be having a blast as he ran through a field with a white hoodie. “We have everything we need 🙏🏼,” Kourtney captioned the family memories.

The reality star and her kids were bundled up for the chilly temperatures, which are in the 50 degree range during the day. Kourt was cute and cozy in short olive puffer jacket, matching pants, and beige hiking boots as she held a sleepy Reign in her arms. Other images show the gorgeous scenery on the sprawling property, including a breathtaking sunrise, a trip to the horse barn, and a super-fun ride on an ATV four-wheeler! The endless fields looked like an absolute dream, and the kids were taking full advantage of their nature-filled getaway!

The 9,000-acre property — which is called Monster Lake Ranch — was purchased by Kourtney’s brother-in-law Kanye West for $14 million back in September. Kanye technically owns 4,500 acres of the land, located just out of Cody, which features eight-lodging units, two freshwater lakes, a restaurant, and, of course, horse barns. The family property seems to be put to good use already, as Kim Kardashian, 39, shared photos of her getaway there with daughters North, 6, and Chicago, 1 back on Sept. 14. Kanye, who is also a fan of visiting Jackson Hole, was also using the space to put the finishing touches on his upcoming Jesus Is King album.

Given Kourtney’s passion for holistic wellness, travel and all things nature — as documented on her lifestyle site Poosh — we aren’t surprised to see her kicking back at the stunning ranch!

Pensioners aged 90 and over are being admitted to hospital after taking cocaine – Mirror Online

November 9th, 2019

Pensioners aged 90 and over are being admitted to hospital after taking cocaine, NHS research has revealed.

The report said ten elderly patients were taken to hospital with mental and behavioural disorders ‘due to the use of cocaine’.

The number of people admitted to hospital due to cocaine use within the nonagenarian group remains the same as last year, but it is a five-fold compared with two a decade ago, according to NHS Digital .

The analysis shows a whopping 88 per cent increase in the number of people, aged 60 and above, being treated for cocaine-related disorders in England.

It went from 45 people a year in 2009 to 379 people this year.

Dr Emily Finch, vice-chair of the addictions faculty at the Royal College of Psychiatrists, told the Sunday Times that the rise in the number of pensioners taking drugs was related to longer longevity, the increasing purity of the drug and the falling prices to purchase them.

She said the trend is ‘deeply worrying’.

Dr Finch added: “Many people don’t realise that cocaine use can cause mental health problems, resulting in people becoming so unwell they need to be admitted to hospital.”

Karen Tyrell, from drug charity Addaction, said: “We need to shift the narrative to let people know that it’s OK to ask for help or support at a much earlier stage.”

In April, Chancellor Sajid Javid accused middle-class users of playing key role in the drug problem.

He was quoted saying: “They may never set foot in a deprived area. They may never see an act of serious violence, but their illicit habits are adding fuel to the fire that is engulfing our communities.”

Loss to Flyers secondary as Leafs await diagnosis of Marner’s injury – Sportsnet.ca

November 9th, 2019

TORONTO – The outcome of Saturday’s game suddenly became less important than the outcome of the diagnosis.

When Mitchell Marner got tangled up with Carsen Twarynski during a centre-ice face-off in the second period, his left skate stepped on the Flyer’s blade and slid out abruptly. As a result, Marner’s right foot twisted violently, injuring his ankle to an extent that he had to hobble and crawl to the Toronto Maple Leafs’ bench, where he was fished up by his teammates.

Marner tried to participate in one more shift but crumpled when his foot couldn’t bear weight. The high-flying winger’s attempt to test out his ankle during a TV timeout only resulted in a conversation with trainer Paul Ayotte, a return to the medical table, and an announcement that he was done for the night.

He won’t travel to Chicago for Sunday’s game.

“You never know what the situation is or what’s really going on in his body and in his mind,” said Auston Matthews, before vocalizing what an entire fan base is thinking.

“I just hope he’s OK.”

Marner’s injury — severity unknown — comes as uneasy news to Leaf Nation, who has yet to watch its top line skate in full and, as a result, is getting antsy to see what the NHL’s most expensive complement of forwards can accomplish at peak health.

Dashing salt in the wound with salt was a 3-2 Philadelphia Flyers shootout victory at Scotiabank Arena before the Leafs hit the road for eight of their next nine contests.

After a mediocre October, the Leafs have gained traction since the return of Marner’s centreman, John Tavares, from a broken finger and now have points in four straight. Expecting first-line left wing Zach Hyman (knee) back sometime next week, Toronto had appeared to be straightening its defensive game and its bill of health simultaneously.

A reminder of that was defenceman Travis Dermott (off-season shoulder surgery) jumping up in the play shortly after Marner went down, taking a pretty feed from William Nylander and joyously sniping his first goal in just his fifth game of the season.

“That was pretty much the exact same spot I scored my first goal, so nice little flashback there,” Dermott said.

“From Willy too, so that was awesome. It gets the adrenalin going even more than it usually is, so it’s nice to see the boys getting excited for you like that and definitely makes you feel right back in it.”

“I can hear him screaming from the blue line,” Matthews smiled. “He’s a really passionate guy. Loves to score, loves to win, a really good teammate, so I’m really happy for him to get that first one.”

Alas, Toronto had dug itself an 0-2 hole by that point.

Philadelphia defender Philippe Myers opened the scoring in Period 1, lasering a high shot over Frederik Andersen’s blocker that zipped out as fast as it flung in.

Philly’s leading goal-getter, Oskar Lindblom, struck next, niftily deflecting a wide Travis Konecny shot into the roof of Andersen’s cage on the power play.

But, as is so often the case this fall, Toronto roped its opponent back in after surrendering an early lead.

With the bench shortened and Leafs wingers seeing extra shifts in the third, Nylander scored his fifth off a pretty backhand feed from Auston Matthews to knot the game at two goals apiece.

Matthews later admitted he was attempting an Andrei Svechnikov–style lacrosse goal from behind the net and only fed his wingman after the puck slipped off his flattened blade.

“It was close,” Nylander said.

“But it ended up right on my tape, so it was nice.”

A thrilling, seesaw overtime brimming with open looks, clanged posts and odd-man rushes solved nothing, unless you count boredom.

“You really want to get that extra point, especially with how hard we worked to get back in that situation,” Matthews said.

Nylander scored in the skills contest, but Claude Giroux (fully cocked slapshot) and Sean Couturier (slick deke) countered with daggers as Flyers-Leafs required more than 65 minutes for a second straight Saturday.

Jeff Marek and Elliotte Friedman talk to a lot of people around the hockey world, and then they tell listeners all about what they’ve heard and what they think about it.

The urgency to fill Marner’s spot in the lineup — Does Jason Spezza climb down from the press box? Does Kyle Dubas recall a body from the Marlies? — kicks in immediately as the Maple Leafs quickly packed their gear and hopped a charter to Chicago on Saturday night.

Tired and banged up, the Maple Leafs will take on the Blackhawks without their leading point-producer of the past two seasons, their premier passer, their power-play maestro, and their penalty-killing water bug.

What do the Maple Leafs miss when you subtract Marner from the equation?

“Really, the heartbeat of our locker room,” Tavares said recently. “His attitude on a daily basis, the work ethic he brings, and the amount of fun he has.”=

Minutes before boarding a charter, Babcock — winner of 700 games — found himself at a loss.

“Well, I mean, what are you going to do?” the coach said. “It’s hockey. Injuries happen and you find out more about other guys. I don’t know the extent of this. I don’t know if it’s a few days or weeks or whatever.

“There’s no sense on dwelling on it. Someone else gets an opportunity. Let’s go.”

Travis Scott’s Astroworld Festival is a hit in Houston! – KHOU.com

November 9th, 2019

HOUSTON — It’s officially Houston’s biggest music festival.

In only its second year, Travis Scott’s Astroworld welcomed some of rap’s biggest names to a crowd of more than 50,000.

For fans, the festival’s cult-like following lives up to the hype.

“Dude, it’s like crazy. I’ve never seen anything like this,” Juan Corona said.

Astroworld is the hottest ticket in town selling out way before the all-star lineup was announced.

“I think my boy Jack, he’s not going to let this town down,” Corona said. “He’s going to hold it up and represent Houston to the fullest. I missed out last year’s so this is my first time. I was like, ‘Ok, let me go check it out. It’s probably not going to be all that.’ Dude, my shoes, gone pretty much.”

This year’s festival adding some variety with unexpected acts taking the stage like Marilyn Manson.

Greg Mora flew his granddaughter, Lauryn, and her boyfriend in from Washington D.C. and surprised them with tickets to the music festival.

“I’m open to all kinds of music and I’m interested in checking it out because I heard the song that he recently did with Ozzy Osborne,” Mora said.

This Astroworld is a little different from the one some people remember.

“I’ve been to Astroworld, but that was, like, the other, the original Astroworld. We used to bring kids here all the time,” Mora said.

Lauryn said the festival will be a learning experience.

“He’s pretty spontaneous like that but I think it’s awesome that we’re here. We’re going to have a great time at Astroworld. That’s all that matters,” Lauryn said.

Crowds managed to break through barricades before the gates opened at noon. Several people were trampled in the chaos.

At one point, Houston police had to call in extra officers because the event was understaffed.

“Visibly, I don’t see any cops. I did see some security up at the front. They pat you well but other than that it kind of like a free-for-all kind of thing,” Corona said.

Houston police later said they were working closely with the festival to make sure everyone has a memorable night.

“Once they saw my age they asked me to bring some adult supervision so I think everybody will be fine,” Mora said.

“Got to get that adult supervision,” Lauryn said.

Fans said the success of the festival goes to show Scott’s vision of Astroworld is here to stay.

If you didn’t get a chance to catch all the action at NRG Park, Scott is set to open a pop-up shop in Rice Village on Sunday.

Senators score three early goals, Nilsson makes 38 saves as Sens beat Hurricanes – TSN

November 9th, 2019

OTTAWA — The Ottawa Senators may be in the midst of a rebuild, but that doesn’t mean the players aren’t enjoying themselves right now.

Filip Chlapik, Vladislav Namestnikov and Jean-Gabriel Pageau all scored in the first period and Anders Nilsson made 38 saves as Ottawa beat the Carolina Hurricanes 4-1 on Saturday.

The Senators (6-9-1) won their second straight game and third in their past four. Brady Tkachuk also scored in the third.

“I think we’ve just shown that we can beat some top teams in the league and that gives you confidence. Everyone is hungry and everyone wants to win and it’s really fun right now,” Chlapik said.

Andrei Svechnikov had the lone goal for the Hurricanes (9-7-1), who lost their fourth straight game. James Reimer made 26 saves in the loss.

The Senators led 3-1 at the start of the third period and it stayed that way until Tkachuk scored at 15:53. Ottawa is now 5-4-0 on home ice this season.

“At the start (of the season) we were playing good hockey but not a full 60 minutes,” Tkachuk said. “Recently we’re starting to string them together and it’s just more of us working hard every single shift and playing our game which is fast and physical.

“We’re still learning but we’re certainly being rewarded with some bounces.”

Chlapik gave the Senators a 1-0 lead just shy of the halfway mark in the first when he deposited a rebound past Reimer with a backhand. Jonathan Davidson and J.C. Beaudin each collected an assist and their first NHL points on the goal.

Beaudin came close to getting his first NHL goal in the third period but, while his shot was able to beat Reimer, it didn’t beat the crossbar.

Already up 1-0 in the first, the Senators set a franchise record for fastest two goals when Namestnikov and Pageau scored four seconds apart late in the period to take a 3-0 lead.

Namestnikov had a Tyler Ennis shot hit him in front of the net and get past Reimer at 16:47. On the ensuing faceoff Pageau chased the puck down in the Carolina zone and beat Reimer from just inside the top of the face-off circle at 16:51.

“Not the way we wanted to start and not the way we wanted to play,” Reimer said.

“For me too, you want to stop pucks and you don’t want to let them in. It was a frustrating way to start but we settled more into our game, but you can’t spot a team three goals in this league.”

The Hurricanes came close to getting on the board late in the period but Nilsson made a great pad save on Warren Foegele as time expired.

Late in the second period Nilsson made another great save in tight on Teuvo Teravainen, but only after Svechnikov beat him on the power play at 10:58 cutting the Senators’ lead to 3-1.

“We’re having a tough time scoring, and when you give away opportunities it makes it impossible. We’ve got to hunker down and not give them any opportunities but that’s not what happened.,” Hurricanes coach Rod Brind’Amour explained.

“It’s soul search time for our group and we’re better than what we’re showing right now, for sure, but tonight that was unacceptable.”

Notes: Bobby Ryan, Cody Goloubef and Mikkel Boedker were scratches for the Senators, while Hayden Fleury and Erik Haula were scratches for the Hurricanes…The Senators recalled forward Colin White from the Belleville Senators for Saturday’s game…The Hurricanes were 22-7-6 in their last 34 games against the Senators heading into Saturday…The teams meet again Monday night at PNC Arena in Carolina.

Premier Jason Kenney announces ‘Fair Deal Panel’ to advance Alberta’s interests, like pipelines – Global News

November 9th, 2019

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney announced the creation of a panel that will examine ways to make his province more independent of Ottawa in a speech to the conservative Manning Centre on Saturday in which he rejected separatist arguments.

Kenney’s “Fair Deal Panel,” which will include former Reform Party leader Preston Manning, will consult with Albertans on ideas such as establishing a provincial revenue agency, withdrawing from the Canada Pension Plan in favour of a new provincial agency and establishing a formalized provincial constitution.

The point of the panel, Kenney explained, is to secure a fair deal for Alberta and advance Alberta’s economic interests, such as the construction of energy pipelines.

Kenney noted that several of the ideas are borrowed from Quebec, such as collecting taxes and seeking provincial representation in treaty negotiations that affect Alberta’s interests.

He said that none of the ideas would be implemented without Albertans endorsing them in a referendum.

Kenney told the audience that separating from Canada would landlock Alberta and not make it any easier to get a pipeline built to a coast, but that he sees the fear in Albertans’ eyes about their economic futures.

“It’s expressed most devastatingly in an increase in the rate of Albertans who have taken their own lives over the past five years. The per capita rate of suicide in Alberta is 50 per cent higher than it is in Ontario,” Kenney said in his speech in Red Deer, adding that economic woes are also contributing to a wave of rural crime and opioid addiction.

“So this literally for many people is a life-and-death question.”

Other members of the panel will include Stephen Lougheed, a businessman and son of former premier Peter Lougheed, as well as University of Alberta law professor Moin Yahya, First Nations leader Jason Goodstriker, Canada West Foundation chair Oryssia Lennie, and some members of Kenney’s United Conservative Party caucus.

Kenney’s speech was the keynote address at the conference, where three of four panels discussed the federal election result and what it meant for Alberta and the West.

In the days that followed the Oct. 21 vote, a simmering separatist movement in Alberta gained momentum under the “Wexit” umbrella, a name seemingly created to mimic the Brexit movement aimed at separating Britain from the European Union.

The group’s founder, Peter Downing, earlier this week filed paperwork with Elections Canada to form a federal Wexit Alberta party that could, in his words, do for Western Canada what the Bloc Quebecois does for Quebec.

Kenney said the status quo isn’t acceptable, but that he and most Albertans don’t want to give up on Canada forever.

“So what is the alternative?” Kenney asked. “Bold action.”

The panel will conduct public consultations between Nov. 16 and Jan. 30. It will complete its report to government by March 31.

Opposition Leader Rachel Notley responded in a statement that Kenney was “intentionally stoking the fires of western alienation in order to advance his own political objectives.”

The NDP leader also noted that Kenney never mentioned withdrawing from the Canada Pension Plan during the provincial election last April.

“Alberta is part of Canada, and Jason Kenney needs to accept that,” Notley said.

“This premier needs to cut the theatrics and get back to the job of getting Albertans back to work.”

Premier Jason Kenney announces ‘Fair Deal Panel’ to advance Alberta’s issues and autonomy – The Globe and Mail

November 9th, 2019

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney delivers his State of the Province address to the Edmonton Chamber of Commerce in Edmonton on Tuesday, October 29, 2019.

JASON FRANSON/The Canadian Press

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney has appointed former Reform Party leader Preston Manning to a new panel which will consider a wholesale rewriting of the province’s relationship with Canada.

Mr. Kenney laid out a vision for an Alberta that is increasingly autonomous from the rest of Canada during a speech on Saturday in Red Deer, a move he said is needed due to increasing separatist sentiment and the re-election of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberals.

The Premier said a “Fair Deal” panel will now consider the establishment of a provincial revenue agency, withdrawing Alberta’s workers from the Canada Pension Plan and removing the RCMP in favour of a provincial police force. Alberta will even consider whether it should write its own constitution.

Along with Mr. Manning, the nine-member panel will include Stephen Lougheed, the son of Peter Lougheed, a long-serving conservative premier, and former conservative MLA Donna Kennedy-Glans.

The panel will submit a report to the provincial government by the end of March on whether to go-forward with the proposals.

Mr. Kenney suggested in his hour-long speech that Canada’s “Laurentian elites” in Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa have abandoned Alberta.

The premier said the federal government under Mr. Trudeau has been “actively hostile” towards his province’s energy industry and he has seen fear in the eyes of Albertans. He said the resulting decline in the province’s oil and gas sector, compounded by Ottawa’s indifference to his province’s pain has lead to a spike in suicides. “This literally, for many people, is a life or death question,” he told a gathering of the Manning Centre, a Conservative think tank.

The province’s situation has only gotten worse since the federal election in late October, according to Mr. Kenney. “The election exacerbated those divisions and created a minority government that is potentially even more dangerous to the federation. Albertans know this and they want us to respond boldly and assertively with strength,” he said.

“Energy policy is Ottawa’s primary instrument for inflicting discriminatory economic pain on Alberta and this cannot be allowed to continue. As I said, the federal government has given up on a fair deal for Alberta,” Mr. Kenney added.

Rachel Notley, Alberta’s former premier and current opposition leader, denounced Mr. Kenney’s speech and said he was using “dangerous” rhetoric. “He is intentionally stoking the fires of western alienation in order to advance his own political objectives,” said Ms. Notley, who leads the province’s New Democrats.

In the weeks since the federal election, Mr. Kenney said some fellow Canadians have not shown enough support for the province or a growing movement concerned with western alienation.

Instead of showing sympathy for a provincial economy that has yet to recover from an economic slump in 2015 and 2016, Alberta’s Premier said some in the country were victim-blaming his province. As an example, he said Alberta was wise in deciding not to save its oil revenues over previous decades because that nest-egg would be raided by the rest of Canada and the federal government.

Some of Mr. Kenney’s proposals for Alberta would have an impact on other Canadians, the premier said. The creation of an Alberta Pension Plan would withdraw $40-billion from the CPP and would cause pension costs for workers in the rest of Canada to increase significantly.​
