There was nobody to navigate me through the experience of being watched all the time and nobody to tell me how to be normal when everybody is acting and looking at me differently.”The Django Unchained actor added, “Look, if you’re not careful about it, it can develop into a social anxiety. It’s like, what’s going to happen, what photographer is going to jump out where, what kind of thing am I being set up for? You try to talk yourself out of it, but you’re never used to it.”Since 2017, the Aviator star has been dating actress Camila Morrone.

Chelsea complete Eto’o swoop

first_img The former Barcelona striker did not travel to Prague for Friday night’s European Super Cup clash with Bayern Munich – neither did Willian, whose move from Anzhi was confirmed on Wednesday – but is eager to get into the action. “I am very happy to be here but also anxious because I want to get playing as soon as possible,” Eto’o said on chelseafc.com. “It wasn’t a hard decision. I saw the qualities Chelsea have, and I was very happy with Jose Mourinho before, so when the opportunity came, I was very happy to take it. “I have had a career where I have been lucky enough to win a lot of trophies in different countries, but one of my last dreams as a professional is to come and play in England and see if I can have the same success as in my previous clubs. “I don’t see it as a final challenge, but to have a good time, enjoy my football, and have success with this team.” Eto’o, who will have to wait until after the international break to make his debut, with Everton away on September 14 the first opportunity, revealed he might have been a Chelsea player sooner. But he opted to stay at Barcelona before moving to Inter as part of the deal which saw Zlatan Ibrahimovic move in the opposite direction. “I’ve had a couple of opportunities to come to England before, including the first time Jose was here, but it didn’t work out for one reason or another,” Eto’o added. Samuel Eto’o hopes to replicate his prior successes after signing for Chelsea in a transfer which appears to mark the end of Jose Mourinho’s pursuit of Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney. The Cameroon striker has left Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala to sign a one-year deal and be reunited with Mourinho, who was his boss at Inter Milan. Eto’o is apparently ‘plan B’ after United rejected two Chelsea bids for Rooney, with Mourinho opting against lodging a third, having said he had back-up options. The move might never have happened if Mourinho had received the indication from Rooney that he wanted to join Chelsea. Speaking prior to confirmation of Eto’o’s arrival, Mourinho appeared to have conceded defeat in the bid to capture England striker Rooney, who played for United against Chelsea on Monday and afterwards praised the “fantastic” reception he received at Old Trafford. Mourinho said: “I told you what I have to say. I think I (made it) very, very clear that we didn’t start the process (a third bid). We have nothing more to say. He’s a Man United player and no more than that.” Capturing Eto’o, who commanded wages reported to be in the region of £300,000 a week in Russia, is at odds with Chelsea’s recent transfer policy of signing younger players. It also leaves a question mark over the futures of Demba Ba and Fernando Torres as Mourinho has made it clear four strikers is too many and that Romelu Lukaku is key for Chelsea’s future. Ba’s place in the squad seems most at risk, but Torres has still to repay the £50million fee paid to Liverpool, as Mourinho admitted earlier this week. Eto’o became Chelsea’s fifth signing of the summer transfer window, following Andre Schurrle, Marco van Ginkel, Mark Schwarzer and Willian, who can be expected to provide the ammunition for the striker to score. “I think Willian he is one of the best players in modern football,” Eto’o said. The 32-year-old Eto’o began his career with Real Madrid before, following a spell with Real Mallorca, surging to prominence with Barcelona, scoring 152 goals in 232 appearances for the Catalan club. He has a controversial history with Chelsea. Following a bad-tempered Champions League encounter at Stamford Bridge, the striker criticised Mourinho, referee Pierluigi Collina and made a claim in the Spanish media that he was called a monkey by a Chelsea security guard. The allegations were swiftly denied by Chelsea. It can be assumed Eto’o’s relationship with Mourinho did not suffer as at Inter the pair combined to devastating effect and together won the 2010 Champions League title in a treble-winning campaign. Eto’o, who also played at Stamford Bridge with Inter, added: “They were always games between two big clubs. They didn’t always finish well, but the most important thing is they were spectacular games every time.” The striker netted 53 goals in 102 appearances for Inter before joining Anzhi in August 2011.

RSPH calls for government to classify loot boxes as gambling

first_img Share Related Articles Submit Share YGAM focuses on BAME community engagement with CVR link-up August 21, 2020 GambleAware: Engage those with lived experience of gambling harms August 28, 2020 StumbleUpon Marc Etches to step down as CEO of GambleAware in 2021 August 14, 2020 The Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) has called for the introduction of legislation which would prevent gambling operators from acting as title sponsors for sports clubs in a new report published today.The report, entitled Skins in the Game, surveyed 1,025 young people between 11 and 24 across the UK. In this report, RSPH has called upon the new Conservative Government to introduce legislation which would classify loot boxes and skin betting as legally-recognised forms of gambling.Shirley Cramer CBE, Chief Executive of the Royal Society for Public Health, said: “Young people have told us that gambling and gambling-like activity are slowly but surely polluting hobbies and past-times that have traditionally been beneficial to their wellbeing.“Today, the vast majority of young people take part regularly in video-gaming and no doubt many will receive video games as Christmas presents. However we, and the young people we’ve spoken to are concerned at how firmly embedded gambling-type features are in many of these games.“The rise of loot boxes and skin betting have seen young people introduced to the same mechanisms that underpin gambling, through an industry that operates unchecked and unregulated on the back alleys of the internet, which young people can access from their bedrooms.“As with any public health issue, this is one that requires a combination of measures focusing on both education and regulation. Young people are not universally opposed to gambling and gambling-like activity; they simply want to be able to recognise where it appears in their lives and to make an informed decision as to whether to avoid it altogether, or to participate in a way that lowers the stakes for their health and wellbeing.”Loot boxes, which are purchased by two in five (40%) of young gamers, are items embedded within games, containing randomised rewards which are uncertain at the point of purchase. These can be cosmetic, such as ‘skins’ that change the appearance of an in-game character, or provide users with an advantage in gameplay.The research, funded by GambleAware, found that a majority of young people see both purchasing a loot box (58%) and taking part in skin betting (60%) as potential pathways into problem gambling.RSPH has subsequently outlined a number of requests, including: A commitment from the gaming industry to ensure gamble-free video and mobile games for under 18s; the development of a set of criteria and technology to identify spending patterns on loot boxes; A broader definition of gambling to be included in the Health Education Curriculum and introduced to young people at primary school; the development of education programmes which would help parents, carers and teachers to identify problem gambling behaviours; and the recognition of gambling harms as an issue for Mental Health Support Teams in schools and colleges.last_img read more
