Manchester City’s Fernandinho has found himself the subject of criticism after his tough treatment of Colombia star man James Rodriguez at the World Cup on Friday night.

The Blues midfielder, who had an excellent game overall, committed a number of fouls on the tournament’s top scorer in his role as defensive midfielder but escaped any sanction from referee Carlos Velasco Carballo.

Rodriguez said afterwards: “I think the referee influenced the game a lot, but that is how it is and we need to look forward.”

The game lost its flow after the break and in total there were 54 fouls awarded (31 committed by Brazil).

One of them, by Juan Zuniga, resulted in a fractured vertabra for Brazil star Neymar and has probably ended his tournament.

One potentially frustrating problem with Photoshop, especially if you’re not one of the lucky few working with dual monitors, is that with so many tools, panels, menus and options available to us, the interface can crowd and clutter up our screen, limiting how much room we have to actually view and work on our images. And with the size of our photos ever increasing as camera technology improves, finding ways to maximize our work area becomes extremely important.

Fortunately, Adobe gives us a simple way to overcome this problem, and that’s by taking advantage of Photoshop’s various screen modes. A screen mode controls how much of the interface is displayed on screen, ranging from a “standard” mode that displays the entire interface to a “full screen” mode that hides everything but the image itself. In this tutorial, we’ll look at each of the three screen modes, how to switch between them, and we’ll learn a few handy keyboard tricks for getting the most out of this great feature. I’ll be using Photoshop CS6 here, but this tutorial is also fully compatible with Photoshop CC (Creative Cloud).

The Standard screen mode in Photoshop.

This image is open in Photoshop’s Standard screen mode, the default screen mode. It displays the entireinterface, including the Tools panel on the left, the main panel area on the right, the Menu and Options Bars along the top, various options, scroll bars and other information for the document window itself, and more. While the Standard screen mode does give us quick and easy access to everything we’d need, it also takes up the most screen real estate.

Grilled Smoky Eggplant Salad

Posted by MkTeam under Health Tips



The delicious flavor of grilled eggplant is featured in this simple recipe, which makes an easy summertime side dish for tonight’s dinner or this weekend’s barbecue. The yummy smokiness of the eggplant is the flavor focal point, while curls of Manchego cheese add an elegant richness you’ll love.  Our favorite touch, though, is the tangy Mediterranean-flavored homemade vinaigrette dressing made from a purée of extra virgin olive oil, sherry vinegar, tomato, garlic, and paprika — a great go-to dressing for any summer salad.

Grilled Smoky Eggplant Salad


•    2 small eggplant, (about 1 pound total)
•    3/4 teaspoon salt, Kosher, divided
•    1 dash(es) cooking spray, olive oil-flavored
•    1/4 cup(s) extra-virgin olive oil
•    1 tablespoon vinegar, sherry
•    1 small tomato(es), plum, diced
•    1 clove(s) garlic, small, chopped
•    1 1/2 teaspoon paprika, smoked
•    3 cup(s) lettuce, mixed greens, baby
•    2 ounce(s) cheese, Manchego, cut in thin curls with a vegetable peeler




You don’t need a home photo studio to take great portrait pictures. You can get beautiful portrait shots using natural light from a window. In this window light photography tutorial we’ll show you six ways to get striking – and very different – results with your subject.

Window light photography: 6 striking ways to light portraits

The light levels from a window are lower, so you may need to bump up the ISO or use a tripod.

The principles are much the same as those for studio photography – it’s all about the direction of the light and its ‘quality’, or how soft it is as it falls on your subject’s face.

Background Eraser Tool

If you want to remove a background from an image you’re working on, there are many ways to do this using Photoshop. You could select the object you’re interested in, copy and paste it to a new layer. Another way to do it is to use the Background Eraser tool. This tool samples the color at the center of the brush and then deletes pixels of a similar color as you “paint.”

1. Start by opening an image that you want to remove the background from.

5 Foods That Make You Look Younger

Posted by MkTeam under Health Tips


Eat the right cheese, nuts and more to reverse the aging process



Reclaim Your Youth

These natural remedies help your skin and teeth defy time. And they may be in your diet already! Here’s what they are and how they fight aging.

1. Oatmeal

Non-processed (read: not instant) versions of this breakfast favorite are packed with amino acids and vitamin E, which nourish your skin, combat sun damage and counteract aging free radicals.

2. Coffee

Caffeine helps constrict and stimulate blood vessels to give skin a more even appearance. So savor that cup o’ joe—or take a few sips right before you want to look your absolute best.

3. Mozzarella Cheese

Brighter-looking teeth can take years off your face. Foods high in calcium, like mozzarella (even lowfat options), protect and strengthen the enamel of your teeth. They also increase the production of saliva, which helps fight off yellowing bacteria.

4. Grapefruit

The vitamin C packed in this nutritious citrus fruit promotes collagen growth, which helps prevent sagging skin.

5. Walnuts

This nut is high in omega-3 fatty acids that increase the moisture levels in your skin and help plump up wrinkles. Toss a few into your salad to reap the benefits.

how to improve your blog, food, and product photography

If there’s one thing that convinces people to click through and check out a new blog, it’s great photos. The exact same project that gets thousands (or millions) of views when photographed well will get completely ignored if photographed badly. Drool-worthy pictures of food, craft projects staged on a pretty mantel, and clothes modeled by super cute kids all make us more likely to check out the actual post. I’m by no means a pro when it comes to product photography, but I’ve learned a few things in the past year and a half that I thought I’d pass along. Even if you aren’t a blogger, chances are you occasionally want to photograph something you’ve made, whether it’s Thanksgiving dinner or a first day of school outfit. Keep reading for 5 ways to improve your food, product, and blog photos.

Sergio Ramos. Photograph: Europa PressVery handsome. Looked great with long hair, now rocking a buzz-cut side, mohawk top combination with aplomb. Standard footballer cheesy dress sense, to be honest, but you can’t have everything.

Left back David Luiz, Brazil

Centre midfield Andrea Pirlo, Italy


Andrea Pirlo.

His Italian aesthetic – blazers, coloured knitwear, loafers – stands out against a sea of commercial sportswear. See: this photo, Instagrammed by fellow Juventus player Kwadwo Asamoah.

Centre midfield Ross Barkley, England

Left midfield Neymar, Brazil

Right midfield Miralem Pjanic, Bosnia & Herzigovina

The only footballer in the England squad who appears even vaguely aware of youth culture beyond the Kiss FM playlist and Mahiki VIP room. He wears Kanye West designed Nike high-tops, sweatshirts by Opening Ceremony and uses filters on his hotel room Instagrams of Steven Gerrard. Respect.
