And if beer was the best sports supplement ever?

Rich in calcium, magnesium and all that is needed to rebalance the body’s salts, beer protects against cardiovascular risk, preserves good cholesterol and is also anti-inflammatory. Not to mention it has average only 35 calories per 100 grSince Luca Gatteschi, a national of the Italian Football Association, has stated that beer is “more valid than any other energy supplement because it is more complete”, many have wondered whether it is true.

We start with the objective fact that what is said is true: it is rich in calcium, magnesium and all that is needed to balance the salts of the organism; Group B vitamins and folic acid protect against cardiovascular risks, it also protects good cholesterol (Hdl), is anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and counteracts free radicals, without having average only 35 calories per 100 gr ..

What is underestimated and of which few speak, also because the studies in this regard are still underway, are the mysterious virtues of hops. Not everyone knows that only two plants belong to the cannabaceae family: hops and cannabis. The common points between the two are many, ranging from the remarkable variety of molecules that characterize it and make it difficult to accurately check the effects.

The main difference is that there is no illegal THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) in hops, but apparently there are not any proofs yet – the euphoric and anti-depressive nature of beer is perhaps more linked to hops than alcohol. However, some studies point to a possible depressive effect when taken in conjunction with anti-psychotics and benzodiazepines. To keep in mind.

One myth to be discouraged is the anti-tumor ability of beer due to xantholol, a polyphenolic molecule related to resveratrol, the antitumor of red wine, since when in the 1990’s, researchers at Oregon State University discovered the potential anti-cancer They also found that the levels in the hop were so low as to require, to get a real benefit, some thirty liters of beer per day.

Some of the many therapeutic properties had already been discovered by the Sumerians; Then Chinese medicine used it, and continues to do so, to treat stomach problems, intestinal disorders, and tuberculosis. The idea of ​​using it as a cushion pad able to fight insomnia is original. From us we begin to recognize its prerogatives from the twelfth century but it took a long time before the antiseptic, vermifuge and bactericidal virtues were exposed.

Hops also contain phyto-hormonal substance, very useful for those who have hair problems as they stimulate the metabolic functions of the scalp tissue by strengthening the roots and accelerating growth. Phytosterols are substances similar to female estrogens and therefore help to prevent osteoporosis, relieve vision problems and those related to the prostate.

In conclusion, if beer is the best integrator, you can answer a “yes” sound, since it does all that others do, but it also has the beneficial effects of hop, those known and those still to be discovered. But above all it is the only one who takes care of your hair.

They are not ugly, they are unique: so are the ‘ugly pants’

Before it was the ugly shoes and now the trend comes to the pants, and the designers confirm it


Liana Satenstein – Pirate Bombshell in the J.W. Anderson. Huge cargo pants in wine color, in Hood By Air. Low-cut and crazy print at Eckhaus Latta. The floral leggings, signed by Balenciaga, which Rihanna wore in DJ Khaled’s music video, “Wild Thoughts”. Ugly pants were confirmed as a trend in the spring of 2017, but do not call them ugly! Let’s say they are a “unique” alternative; Or “have personality”; But nothing ugly. Let’s not be mean or cruel to these marginalized because the reality is that even they can molar. And if you feel a certain affinity for these rare specimens, do not be scared or embarrassed to recognize it: to show them, it only takes a little styling.

Think of Gucci’s tremendous metallic pink pants. If you think such a creep is impossible to wear in real life, there is nothing like following the “big horse” maxim and matching it with a polka blouse and flat shoes in white. Want to explore your ‘teenage mall’ vein, possible Insane Clown Posse hip-hop fan? Wear Proenza Schouler’s elastic wool trousers and, as an addition, an extra-long rivet belt (and, curiously, the long belt is now worn by men in London).

In the antipodes of this style, and for those looking for a loose and more feminine cut, it is possible to opt for the fusion of the picture and the steering wheel courtesy of Simone Rocha. Combine it with a button-down striped shirt, biker gloves and cowboy boots to give the touch of grace. What is the back of the tenebrous? Yours is the model paneled and given the return of Y / Project. In addition, in contrast to the wide leg you can emphasize the waist with a notched shirt. If you are passionate about the Renaissance, in Jonathan Simkhai’s taffeta shorts with gathers and drawstrings you will be the most chic of the inn. Say they have personality, say they are special … but never ugly.

The automatic distributor of follower and like on Instagram

In Russia, machines come up to buy followers (fake) and print photos. A strangeness that will spread in several other European countries but it gives a nasty surprise (spam)

At social networking time where everything is running too fast and the only certainty for some needs is to stay connected as long as possible, it does not surprise anyone invented an automaker to buy followers.

We are the generation that measures success even with the number of followers on Facebook, Twitter, or other digital platforms, so why be astonished? This must have been the thought of who has placed in some Russian city distributors to buy appetizers on Instagram. The Russian journalist Vasily Sonkin was in the past few days telling him, while colleague Alexey Kovalev, who has immortalized the totem inside the Okhotny Ryad mall in the center of Moscow, tells the story (via Twitter, of course).


With the news immediately bounced on thousands of curious accounts and workmen, the automated machine was tested by some curious to show that it’s all true and that on board there are several functions.

If the most absurd – and illegal, because it breaks the rules of the social photo – it is possible to buy followers, like or hearts on Instagram at a reduced cost (100 rubles, that is 1.5 euro per cent followers, 85 cents for as many inches ), The options also include maneuvering on VKontakt, the most popular Russian social network, the most popular and used of Facebook, and the printing of images from both platforms.

To make it clear and remove any doubts in the head of the least ladies, assuming that the mechanism is effective, logically they are fake followers, whose bulk purchasing has for years already been proposed on special sites and available for any type of social network . But the curiosity is another, because the company that designed the plan, Snatap, told Motherboard that in addition to the 20 vending machines in Moscow, St. Petersburg and six other Russian cities, the requests came as well From the Czech Republic, Germany and Poland, where the next totems will arrive, whose provisional rent is around 14,000 rubles, equal to about 220 euros, and later they will also accept promotional codes in addition to money.

It should be noted that each operation requires the inclusion of its own account, with the consequent spam bombardment of all its contacts. It is therefore useless to buy 100 more followers if then the move could cost you the protests and possibly the bragging of hundreds of virtual friends.

Monaco Grand Stories, the days of Glory of Formula One

The Rock of Monte Carlo. The most celebrated historic site of the Côte d’Azur. A mecca of luxury, full-time life and sport, because it is along the Principality’s streets that is the most exciting race of the whole schedule of Form 1. Monte Carlo, however, has for more than sixty years been The Mediterranean capital of the international jet set, and from 26 to 28 May, during the Grand Prix days, the atmosphere has become even more magical: it is breathtakingly breathtaking, with cocktails starting at sunset and Parties that last all night until dawn. Professional pilots and beautiful people. Top model, sports celebrities, stars and millionaires – the elite of the “sweet life” – are here to experience the thrill of the legendary race.

Those early years see the affirmation of the MARTINI Racing logo: blue, white, red and blue. A historic design that from then on has become synonymous with speed: for twenty-five years this image has represented its identity and has caused MARTINI to be associated with the fascinating world of motors, a “sweet life” that is more Sweet than ever. We are experiencing a new era in which Formula 1, its circuits, its riders, its competitive spirit are increasingly linked to the joy of living, the style of taste. And it is no coincidence that MARTINI has returned to Formula 1 in 2014 as the main sponsor of Williams’ English team, one of the stables that have made the story of this sport: founded in 1977 by Sir Frank Williams and Sir Patrick Head, won Sixteen world titles in 40 years, seven of which for single pilots (the other nine in the category of builders). Since its inception, Williams has operated in two directions: the technological advancement needed to ensure the primacy; And the consecration of the F1 and the stable as a symbol of something beyond the sport to overcome in the fields of design and style. Williams cars have always been the most beautiful. That’s why marriage with MARTINI looks perfect. It reminds us of the true meaning of Formula One: a great sporting competition, but also a unique opportunity to be in a good company to enjoy unique moments; An experience in which beauty and joie de vivre are essential aspects.


MARTINI has always had to deal with the joy of racing and the style of “sweet life”, and his story is deeply tied to the Principality, where he returns as the protagonist of this special moment that continues to generate enthusiasm, Giving birth to an event that is synonymous with style. Tens of thousands of people attend the race by the bridges of yachts moored along the circuit, the stairs and the terraces overlooking the track. The race of this edition of the championship will be fought as it has not been for years. It is the most demanding circuit in the F1 calendar and even the most celebrated. Winning this race is the greatest ambition in a pilot’s career, but just participating is a rare privilege.

This year, MARTINI returned to Munich to contribute to his fun and memorable experience, and GQ was present with his own ambassador: actor Alessandro Roja, a great passion for Formula 1 and a car collector, A man able to fully appreciate the exciting atmosphere that is breathing on the track and out of the symphony of the rotting engines that these days is felt in every corner of Monaco at the adrenaline guaranteed by the circuit. Alessandro Roja has lived in person the sweet life of the Principality, first of all as the protagonist of the exclusive party on the MARTINI yacht, together with the ambassador brand Jessiqa Pace: drinking drinks in front of one of the most peaceless views

We already know who the twins of Amal and George Clooney look like

It has been the actor’s father who has talked about his grandchildren (and his daughter-in-law)

It may be because he is a veteran journalist (and likes to make good headlines). Or mere chance.

But the reality is that when Nick Clooney, the father of George, raises the bread. And it’s not the first time Nick, 83, confirms what we all wanted to know.

He did so when he officially confirmed his son’s engagement to attorney Amal Alamuddin –

“We like Amal and we are very excited about our family and excited about them,” he said – and he has done it now.

To know that Amal and Clooney had been the parents of two children named Ella and Alexander, the grandfather talked about something else

we all wanted to know (in the absence of an official photo of the children).

Already on two occasions this week, one on the Good Morning Britain program and the other by telephone conversation with Tricia Macke at

Cincinnati WXIX, where, surprise !, has told who the babies are like, who knew only two hours After being born via Skype

(he lives in Kentucky and the couple in London) apparently have dark hair and look like his father

or at least that says his wife thinks “Nina swears they have the nose I do not know what that means. Ica, “he said during the interview he kept on the phone with

Tricia Macke.


Although at that time did not give much more data on the resemblance, the following day, in Good Morning Britain, extended something more this information.

“I’m supposed to be a reporter, so I should know how to observe, but I really do not know how to distinguish one beautiful baby from another.

” They are two beautiful babies, “said the happy grandfather, leaving the ball of physical resemblance on the roof of his woman.

“They would have to talk to my wife about which nose looks like her grandfather’s and what a nose to her grandmother’s. They are perfect, “he added.

And another headline: Nick has returned to talk about his daughter-in-law, Amal Clooney, and how he is seeing her in her new role as mother.

“I’m constantly impressed by her. She’s an incredible woman. George did well by marrying her. ”


The Mummy: 7 Reasons to See The First Dark Universe Movie

The first film and prototype of the Dark Universe project, Alex Kautzman’s film is a real journey through time through movie history and a step towards the future of ‘new monsters’

From June 8th, there is La Mummia in the hall, the beginning of the Dark Universe project signed by Universal Pictures, which wants to give life to monsters of classic horror. You know already that the next movie will be Frankenstein’s wife and almost every day comes updates on the cast, already full of names like Johnny Depp and Javier Bardem.

It is difficult to express a unique view on Alex Kauzman’s film, and interpreted by Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella and Annabelle Wallis: Mummy in version 2.0 can be a classic, though not in the sense that (perhaps) can be understood and different in same time. Here because.

In the beginning, it was Indiana Jones, then came the Templars and the Zombies
Among the scenes of the prologue and the first third of the film, rather than the remake of the 1932 and 1959 film, the thought goes to Indiana Jones’s saga of archaeologist and adventurer: there are both aspects because Nick Norton (Tom Cruise) is More than an adventurer, is a soldier who, in order to round up antiquity, sells them to the best bidder.

Jenny Halsey (Annabelle Wallis), on the other hand, is the invaded Egyptologist to know, ready to defend archaeological goods. Or, at least, it looks at the beginning. Then, in the film, references to Templars and Zombies flourish, since Ahmanet’s servants look more like non-dead than ambulant mummies.


In addition to being a former dancer and, recently, a highly-sought-after actress – who will soon be in the room with Charlie Theron in Blonde Atomics – Sofia Boutella can boast of being the first mummy woman: the role is traditionally male but not in Dark Universe. It is Ahmanet’s desire to start ‘games’, starting with the patricid – which recalls, very Greek mythology – to start the curse, and then point to seduction. A modern dark lady, with epic recalls.

Despite the indisputable fascination, made of bandages, but also of flesh and sensuality, one can not feel a sympathy for Ahmanet: neglected by his father, deceived by his servants and rejected even in the twenty-first century. Tom Cruise, in spite of the undisputed fascination for mummy (spontaneous or induced by the same, you do not know), still prefers Jenny blond, even refusing the gift of immortality.


The original mummy, as well as that of Stephen Sommers (with whom he shares the spectacular sandstorms) of 1999, sees little or nothing. In Alex Kauzman’s film, however, there is nothing else. Not so much in terms of passion scenes (just evoked) or nudity (equally alluded, between veils and various bands) of Ahmanet, but for that correlation, which again knows of the ancient, between sex and death. It even touches Tom Cruise, who finds naked in a morgue. It touches the same Ahamanet, forced to ‘suck’ the vital lymph from humans through deep kisses. Not to mention the ménage à trois between Nick, Ahmanet and Jenny, which takes on an old story like the world, the dramatic love triangle of an undecided man between two women.

The character played by Cruise is the paradox of the hero who opposes the monster: selfish, moved only by interest, Nick Morton performs his parable towards love for his neighbor (in this case, for the Egyptian blonde and For humanity) thanks to the fighting Mummy. Ahmanet is, in fact, to make the first glimpse of pity in Nick, when he attends the ‘torture’ that takes place in Jeckyll’s lab. Completely at the mercy of the events for most of the film, the male protagonist is the object of the Egyptian princess’s desire almost to his knowledge and addresses the situation with the same expression of those who are unbelieving, but no such questions arise. With some (perhaps) inadvertent chicca, Cruise seems to be present only in the scene of the Aryan, when he seems to notice Agent Hunt during one of his robbers Mission
