Brandon Wiggins, provided by Published 12:21 pm, Monday, June 4, 2018 Octavio Passos/Getty Images The goalkeeper for the Tunisian soccer team faked injuries at sundown in a pair of recent matches so that his teammates could break their fast and fill up on water and snacks. It is currently Ramadan, a time when Muslims are expected to forgo drinks or food during the daytime. A lot of Muslim soccer players are affected by Ramadan, and the approach to handling Ramadan and its requirement for fasting varies from player to player. Mouez Hassen has a pretty understandable reason for it, as reported by the BBC.

What break fast
Sarah Rahal The Detroit News Published 10:39 p.m. UTC May 30, 2018 Dearborn — Fasting during Ramadan can be difficult, with long, hot days lasting from 4 a.m. until the sun sets. The last place anyone wants to be is in the kitchen while you try to keep your mind off of food, but someone has to prepare the Iftar feast for the family. Millions of Muslims around the world fast during the month of Ramadan, when eating anything or drinking even a sip of water is prohibited while the sun is out. It's one of the five pillars of Islam and is intended to bring the faithful closer to Allah and remind them of the less fortunate. Fasting Muslims are encouraged to spend time in contemplation, prayer, reading the Quran and performing acts of charity during the day. During Ramadan, Muslims break fast during Iftar, a Thanksgiving-style dinner with extended family and friends. As their stomachs slowly shrink throughout the month, the dinner table does … [Read more...] about Fast then feast: Metro cooks share Ramadan recipes

This weekend, the cream of the racing world gathered in Daytona Beach, Florida, to kick off the 2018 racing season at the Rolex 24. It was a grid the likes of which we hadn't seen in a long time. Veteran megastars from the worlds of Formula 1 and IndyCar, rising young hotshots making their names in GP2 and Formula E, and true talents from endurance racing came together in a field of 20 prototypes and 30 GT cars to fight for supremacy over 24 hours on the banking and infield at Daytona International Speedway. When the checkered flag waved on Sunday afternoon, the winning car—the #5 Mustang Sampling Cadillac DPi-V.R of Joao Barbosa, Filipe Albuquerque, and Christian Fittipaldi had covered a record-breaking distance: 808 laps and 2,876.48 miles (4,629.2km). Such a furious pace is unusual for the Rolex 24; mixed grids and the endurance format often breed incidents and lots of yellow-flag running behind a safety car. But 2018 wasn't like that. There was drama a-plenty, and even some … [Read more...] about A packed grid of prototypes battles it at a record-breaking Daytona 24-hour race
In April 2007, only diehard Broken Social Scene fans salivated when band member Leslie Feist released a solo album titled The Reminder. Sales were moderate for the first five months, reaching an average of 6,000 per week. But that September, Apple released its most impactful ad since it unveiled the Macintosh. The spot had a simple concept: a pudgy iPod Nano laid flat against a white table, with a hand repeatedly removing it to reveal another Nano in another color. Each Nano showed the same music video—the song "1234" from Feist. Within five weeks of the commercial’s launch, Feist’s total album sales reached nearly 300,000 units. Roughly 100,000 of those sales came after the ad campaign started, according to USA Today. Fast forward six more months and The Reminder had moved more than 730,000 copies, according to Spin. The undeniably catchy “1234” may have experienced an even greater individual bump. Reuters reported that in the first month … [Read more...] about “Oprah” for indie bands: Apple once loved unknown acts—what changed?
