Mesut Özil is set to miss the rest of the season after suffering a recurrence of his back injury, but questions have arisen over his lack of playing time in the Premier League this season since signing his new contract extension. Last week Europa League semi-final defeat by Atletico Madrid led to intense criticism of Özil from former Arsenal defender Martin Keown, who also predicted that the Germany international would miss the weekend’s tie with Burnley. When the team sheets were released on Sunday afternoon, Özil’s absence was almost met with a comical reception, given he has not been seen in the league since the start of April. Outgoing manager Arsene Wenger’s reluctance to use Özil appeared to be a deliberate attempt to protect him for the Europa League campaign, but given that there will be no golden send-off for Wenger as they missed out on this month’s final, there is no longer a reason to leave the 29-year-old out of the side. … [Read more...] about Mesut Özil to miss the rest of the season with ‘back injury’ but questions arise over Arsenal midfielder’s playing time
No one wants to kick DC heroes when they're down. But the release of Avengers: Infinity War provides the most extreme example of just how far the Marvel Cinematic Universe has come in the past 10 years. We've gone from Iron Man referencing MySpace unironically to a formerly B-list hero becoming even bigger than the biggest of superhero team-ups and, now, to a legitimate culmination of the MCU's space and Earth-based conflicts. Meanwhile, the DC universe kind of appeared on screen, then made money even while being savaged by fans and critics, and seemed to get its act back together with Wonder Woman only to commit its worst injustice yet with Justice League. There have been some keen moments, gorgeous stills and amazing not-mustaches, to be sure. But if a film combining the Justice League, Suicide Squad and who knows who else (maybe Blackhawk?) was announced tomorrow, its hype would pale in comparison to Infinity War. And there are three big … [Read more...] about Commentary: Sorry DC fans, Infinity War just adds insult to injury

0 View Gallery View Comments For a long time after her traumatic brain injury, Linda Nations felt that wild animals were conspiring to keep her safe from harm. There was the time the former Colorado Springs resident and psychotherapist was exhausted, shaky and unwisely driving home through a canyon near Beaver Creek in Penrose. A bald eagle suddenly dove in front of her car - she could see only its wingspan and tail - and led her partway out of the canyon. As the mighty bird peeled off to the left, a great blue heron swooped in and took its place, staying in that position until she exited the canyon. Then there was the sassy skunk that sauntered down the middle of a canyon road she was driving that had a sheer drop on one side. The black and white creature's tail swished left to right and no amount of honking, yelling or barking from Nations' dog could alter her course. That is, until Nations finally gave up her Type A rush to get to a meeting. She started to laugh at the … [Read more...] about Former Colorado Springs resident becomes animal communicator after brain injury
