Or lowlights, if you look at Barca’s performance. Barcelona B’s Liga Adelante debut was a depressing one, as the mini-Cules got their butts whipped by Osasuna in Pamplona, losing 2-0 on a match in which they got dominated from start to finish. Eusebio Sacristan’s side was terrible in every phase of the game, from passing to defending to attacking. Even Alen Halilovic , B team’s biggest star, was in a bad day. Barca had few chances, while Osasuna went straight to attack, and got a brace from Juan Martinez to guarantee them a great win in convincing fashion. Yes, Osasuna is basically a La Liga team that is currently at the Second Division. Still, our B team could have played better.
Debris from the SpaceX F9R trundled down from the flames onto an open field outside of McGregor. The blast was no accident, nor a tragedy. The rocket self-destructed as a safety measure — a common practice in the aerospace industry in unmanned crafts. Design image of the Skylon spacecraft taking off. This radical redesign uses a horizontal take off and landing system, and is 100% reusable, offering more frequent, cheaper and deeper flights into space.

A couple dozen parents sat in the folding chairs when their children were performing, although most chose to cluster in small groups under scattered canopies that provided some relief from the heat. Tanger Outlets provided free water. An air-conditioned CARTA bus served as a place to sit and cool off.

The 66th Annual Terryville Lions Country Fair was in all its festival glory Saturday afternoon as hundreds of fairgoers from around the state took advantage of the nearly fall-like weather to enjoy the sights, sounds and rides of a quintessential New England fair. But its not just all rides and Worlds Greatest Hot Fudge Sundae, at the Terryville Fair. Theres also a good bit of old-fashioned commerce that goes on. Inside one of the main buildings at the festival vendors hawked everything from hand-made soaps to Jesus. The Gospel Hall church of Terryville had a table and was giving away pocket-sized bibles, rubber bracelets and other religious paraphernalia to passersby, along with a bit of proselytizing. Across the way the two ladies manning the Avon both proudly pointed out that the company and its work-at-home reps now sell everything from its iconic Skin So Soft moisturizer (which also doubles as a bug repellant), to sandals. But this will be the last year that Jane Jakobeit, who runs the Avon booth, will take part in the fair.
