Sanders blasts Russia for reportedly trying to boost his presidential campaign

first_imgTopics : The Washington Post on Friday, citing people familiar with the matter, said US officials had told Sanders about the Russian effort and had also informed Republican President Donald Trump and US lawmakers.It was not clear what form the Russian assistance took, the paper said.A congressional source confirmed intelligence officials have told lawmakers Russia appears to be engaging in disinformation and propaganda campaigns to boost the 2020 campaigns of both Sanders and Trump.The source, however, cautioned that the findings are very tentative. Sanders said he was briefed about a month ago. His campaign noted the briefing was classified.”We were told that Russia, maybe other countries, are going to get involved in this campaign,” Sanders told reporters. “Look, here is the message: To Russia, stay out of American elections.””What they are doing, by the way, the ugly thing that they are doing – and I’ve seen some of their tweets and stuff – is they try to divide us up,” he said. “They are trying to cause chaos. They’re trying to cause hatred in America.”Moscow denies The Kremlin on Friday denied Russia was interfering in the US presidential campaign to boost Trump’s re-election chances, following reports that American intelligence officials warned Congress about the election threat last week.”These are more paranoid announcements which, to our regret, will multiply as we get closer to the [US] election,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters. “They have nothing to do with the truth.”US intelligence officials told members of the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee in a classified briefing that Russia was again interfering in American politics ahead of November’s election, as it did in 2016, a person familiar with the discussion told Reuters on Thursday.Since that briefing, Trump has ousted the acting intelligence chief, replacing him with a political loyalist in an abrupt move as Democrats and former US officials raised the alarm over national security concerns.A senior administration official said the nation was better positioned than in 2016 to defend against foreign attempts to influence elections.”President Trump has made clear that any efforts or attempts by Russia, or any other nation, to influence or interfere with our elections, or undermine US democracy will not be tolerated,” the official said.Some of Sanders’ rivals for the Democratic nomination said they had neither received similar briefings nor word that Russia was working to boost their campaigns.Former Vice President Joe Biden told CNN on Friday: “I know Russia doesn’t want me to win. It’s really clear that Putin doesn’t want me to be the nominee, and Donald Trump doesn’t want me to be the nominee.”US Senator Elizabeth Warren, while campaigning in Las Vegas, said there should be “as much transparency as possible” to block Russia from having “too much influence” in US elections.”This is about disinformation and the way to fight disinformation is to call it out, show what it is and give everyone full information as quickly as possible,” Warren told reporters.Russian Accounts Facebook declined to comment on whether it has seen any evidence of Russian assistance to Sanders’ campaign. In October, the company took down Russian-backed accounts that pretended to be from political battleground states.Some of those accounts used Instagram to praise Sanders. Another used the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag and faulted Biden on race issues.Jessica Brandt of the Alliance for Securing Democracy, an organization that monitors foreign interference in US politics, said Russian state media and official social media accounts have been working to help Sanders by amplifying conspiracy theories that his Democratic rivals, the Democratic National Committee and the “corporate media” have been “rigging the system” against him.”We can say with certainty that this is what the Russian government is pushing,” she told Reuters. “We’ve seen for some time Russian official channels promoting division within the Democratic Party.”Graham Brookie, director of the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab, which works with Facebook to analyze state-backed information operations, said “Russian influence operations are equal opportunity hyperpartisan, with the overarching goal to drive Americans further away from each other.”US officials have long warned that Russia and other countries would seek to interfere in the Nov. 3 presidential election, following Russia’s meddling in the 2016 campaign that ended with Trump’s surprise victory over Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.US intelligence agencies concluded that the Kremlin used disinformation operations, cyber attacks and other methods in its 2016 operation in an effort to boost Trump, an allegation that Russia denies. Trump, sensitive to doubts over the legitimacy of his win, has also questioned that finding and repeatedly criticized American intelligence agencies.Russia’s alleged interference sparked a two-year-long US investigation headed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.Mueller found no conclusive evidence of coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign. He also pointed at 10 instances in which Trump may have attempted to obstruct his investigation, as Democrats alleged, but left any finding of obstruction to Congress. center_img Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders warned Russia on Friday to stay out of 2020 White House elections after US officials had told him Moscow was trying to aid his campaign.”The intelligence community is telling us they are interfering in this campaign, right now, in 2020. And what I say to Mr. Putin, if elected president, trust me you are not going to be interfering in American elections,” Sanders told reporters in Bakersfield, California.Sanders, 78, a democratic socialist US senator from Vermont, is considered the front-runner for the Democratic nomination and is favored to win the Nevada caucuses on Saturday.last_img read more

Ambode Inaugurates Boards of Lagos Sports Trust Fund, Commission

first_imgLagos State Governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode on Monday identified the importance of collaboration of key stakeholders to achieve the desired goal for sports administration and development in the country, saying funding of sports should not be the exclusive preserve of government.Speaking at Lagos House in Alausa, Ikeja when he inaugurated the new boards of the Lagos State Sports Commission and the Lagos State Sports Trust Fund, Governor Ambode emphasised the need for the private sector to partner with the government to invest in sports development especially in training talents that abound in the country, as well as putting necessary infrastructures in place.He said: “I want to reiterate our commitment to the sports sector and the need for collaboration between the government and all sports stakeholders in the State. “In achieving our vision in sports, it is our belief that the funding of sports should not be the responsibility of government alone. This informed the establishment of the Sports Trust Fund whose mandate is primarily to interface with the private and public sectors to raise funds for sports development.“Funds raised through the Sports Trust Fund would be utilized for various aspects of sports development on the recommendation and advice of the Sports Commission.”On the other hand, the State Sports Commission is charged with the responsibility of upgrading and maintaining various sports facilities, developing strategic plans for sports development in the State, identifying and creating new locations for development of community sports facilities, overseeing the activities of all the sports associations in the State, grassroot sports development as well as capacity building for sports administrators, sports officers, coaches and athletes.Speaking further, the Governor said the inauguration of the new boards of both agencies was part of the grand plan of positioning Lagos as one of the top sports destinations in Africa, saying that the vision of his administration remained to make the state as the hub for sports, tourism and entertainment and leveraging on the interconnectivity within the three sectors.While the Trust Fund is chaired by a former Lagos State Deputy Governor, Mr Femi Pedro, the Lagos State Sports Commission is to be headed by seasoned sports administrator, Dr Kweku Adedayo Tandoh.Other members of the Trust Fund are Olaposi Agunbiade (Executive Secretary), Dr Enitan Oshodi, Oladipo Awe, Adekoyejo Adejumo, Segun Odusanya, Akindele Ogunlana, Kweku Tandoh, Babatunde Bank-Anthony, Moyosore Ogunseinde, Professor Ademola Abass, Fola Padonu and Omolola Essien.Members of the Sports Commission are Babatunde Bank-Anthony (Director General), Olaposi Agunbiade (Executive Secretary), Gboyega Edu, Toyin Okenla-Ojeaga, Prince Fatai Olukunga, Abdulazeez Tijani, Babatunde Fatayi-Williams, Oluseyi Akinwunmi, Bolaji Adeniji-Adele and Gbenga Kuye.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

We can beat ‘favourites’ City without Kane, vows Pochettino

first_imgFILE PHOTO: Mauricio PochettinoManchester, United Kingdom | AFP | Mauricio Pochettino has labelled Manchester City as Champions League favourites, but the Tottenham manager insists his side can end their challenge even without Harry Kane.Pochettino’s team will defend a slender 1-0 advantage at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday.City are chasing an unprecedented quadruple and many have tipped them to win the Champions League for the first time this season.Although Tottenham have the lead in the tie, the absence of star striker Kane with his latest ankle ligament injury could tip the scales in City’s favour.Pochettino agrees that Pep Guardiola’s formidable squad are worthy of the favourites’ tag.But he is convinced Tottenham are capable of upsetting the odds.“Of course it is going to be tough, Manchester City is one of the best teams in the world and a clear favourite to win the Premier League and Champions League,” Pochettino told reporters on Tuesday.“It is difficult when Manchester City plays a final like they will play tomorrow.“For us to beat them in the first leg was an amazing result, but the tie is still open. What we have is the belief.“We are going to fight and hope for a very good performance. You need a bit of luck in important moments in the game.“It will be an amazing challenge. I’m so motivated and excited to play the game. At 8 o’clock tomorrow it will be a battle.”Tottenham’s chances of completing a famous victory would be improved if England midfielder Dele Alli can start after suffering a fractured hand in the first leg.Alli missed Saturday’s win over Huddersfield, but has travelled with the team to Manchester.Pochettino will decide whether to start Alli against City after his squad’s training session on Tuesday.“We need to assess him. We are going to have the last training session today and then to decide if it’s possible he can be in the starting 11 or on the bench,” Pochettino said. With Kane sidelined, the pressure will be on South Korea forward Son Heung-min to fill the void.– Belief and fight –Son has thrived without Kane this term and the Argentine coach is confident he will rise to the challenge again.“Of course, he is doing a fantastic job this season. After November I am so happy with him,” he said.“It is not only Son. We have other offensive players. Now we need the quality, effort and the belief to go and fight.”Pochettino has a friendly rivalry with Guardiola dating back to the pair’s time as managers of Espanyol and Barcelona respectively.But Pochettino, still waiting to win his first major trophy as a coach, doesn’t put himself on the same level as Guardiola, who has won every top prize in his glittering career.“I think he won 25 trophies. He is the most successful manager in the last 10 years for sure. For me, to win a title with Tottenham is a massive dream,” Pochettino said.“What he is doing is unbelievable. It shows his quality. But at Espanyol, Southampton and now Tottenham, they are different projects than Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Manchester City.”Brazil legend Ronaldinho, Pochettino’s former team-mate at Paris Saint-Germain, has tipped Tottenham to win the Champions League and the Spurs boss urged his players to take confidence from that bold prediction.“In football all can happen. It’s good that people like Ronaldinho say we can win,” he said.“Why not? The players need to listen to that. Maybe it can increase our belief to beat an amazing team like Manchester City.”Pochettino looked confident enough when he faced the media, joking that he wanted the press conference to go on longer so he could soak up his progress to the latter stages of the Champions League for the first time.“I’m comfortable. It’s the quarter-finals of the Champions League, let me enjoy it a little bit! I only won three Catalonia Cups, this is a bit different,” he grinned.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Villarreal closes to loan Real Madrid’s Takefusa Kubo

first_imgKubo showed last season that he is a player with excellent close control and has the ability to provide precise assists. He has also proved dangerous in and around the rival’s penalty areas.****XINHUAShare on: WhatsApp Real Madrid’s Takefusa KuboKampala, Uganda | XINHUA |  Real Madrid’s Japanese international forward Takefusa Kubo is on the verge of agreeing to a one-year loan deal with Villarreal, with the agreement likely to be made official in the coming hours according to reports in the Spanish press.The 19-year-old impressed last season in his loan spell at Mallorca, where he scored four goals in 35 league appearances.However, it’s still difficult for the Japanese to form part of the Madrid first team squad because he doesn’t have an EU passport, as well as facing intense competition from his teammates in the same position.A move to Villarreal would give him the chance to progress as a player. The club from the east coast of Spain ended last season in fifth place in La Liga and will play in the Europa League next season, while the arrival of Unai Emery as first team coach means they have an experienced man at the helm.last_img read more

City League Roundup… Living Large: Patrick Ferguson has the frame and hopes for his senior season

first_imgWhen Allderdice senior running back Patrick Ferguson entered camp this season, he came in with peak confidence for the upcoming season.But that wasn’t the only thing that was elevated.“I looked at him and noticed that he’d picked up some weight,” head coach Jerry Haslett said. “Indeed, he’d weighed in at 260 pounds.” At 6-feet-1 Ferguson—a four-year starter for Allderdice (1-1)— admitted he’d been indulging.“As much working out and preparing I’d been doing in the offseason, it’ll still probably be a good idea for me to watch my eating habits,” he said with a laugh.But that didn’t stop his performance in the team’s 9/7 non conference 21-7 victory at Cupples Stadium, when the Dragons defeated their West Virginia rivals, the Linsly School. He toted the ball 26 times for 179 yards, including two touchdowns.“He’s got some of the best feet I’ve ever seen on a kid that big,” Haslett said. “It’s obvious that the kid spends a lot of time getting himself ready physically. His gifts are truly second to none.”“It’s been all about speed,” Ferguson said. “I know I’m a bigger guy, so me working on my feet and training to be faster would be extremely important for me.”He scored on runs from 27 and 47 away. Senior quarterback Bishop Gethers hooked up with Jaylen Wilkins for a 29 yard pass to complete the scoring for Allderdice.“Bishop is really emerging as a solid leader for us,” Haslett added. “He’s got a really strong arm and is really going to be one of our keys to being a successful team this season.”He also attributed the win to containing their running game.“We were really lucky to have some guys step up on D this year and fill some holes that were left when we had Tyrique (Jarrett) and Jay (Barlow) graduate,” he said. “We knew it would be very important for us to make adjustments so that we could contain their good ground attack.”Linsly’s only score came on a 10-yard pass from Jameson Murray to Chinelo Oparanozie who transferred to the school from Perry.Other games:Perry 32, Pius X 13Running back Curtis Edmonds led the way for the Commodores offense with touchdown dashes of 60 and 19 yards. The other half of Perry’s formidable rushing duo, Robert Willie added a rushing score of one yard.Senior quarterback Ahmad Turner found Quentin Carter for a 9-yard score in the second quarter and run for another from 49 away, to complete the scoring for the Commodores (1-1).Wheeling C.C. 37, Westinghouse 22In their second consecutive trip across state lines, the Bulldogs have dropped that number of games.They put up all 22 of their points in the final quarter on three rushing scores. The school failed to provide those player’s full identities.Chestnut Ridge 35, Carrick 12Wheeling Park, W.

SANTA MONICA STAKES QUOTES – SATURDAY JANUARY 23, 2016

first_imgFERNANDO PEREZ, LOST BUS, WINNER: “She ran well last time but even I didn’t know she was going to run this well in here. I got a clean break, I took her to the lead and she was comfortable the whole time and at the end, she was still trying.“Corey (Nakatani, on Finest City) was pushing me. We were bumping a little bit down the stretch, but not much to be honest. He just had to take the shot to see if he could get the disqualification.“I didn’t even see Mike (Smith, on favored Tara’s Tango) at the wire. I was too busy fighting with Corey and trying to beat him. I needed to get that done first.” NOTES: Winning owner Terry Lovingier resides in Long Beach. JOCKEY QUOTES TERRY LOVINGIER, OWNER, LOST BUS, WINNER: “I’m kinda lost for words. I didn’t expect this and not too many others did either; she was 60-1. We claimed her (for $32,000 three starts back on Nov. 19) because she battled quite a few times with My Fiona (stakes-winning filly owned by Lovingier) when they were both 2-year-olds. I don’t claim that often anymore, but I did claim quite a few horses before I started breeding them.” GARY SHERLOCK, LOST BUS, WINNER: “This race was a Grade I when I won it last time (with Intangaroo in 2008). Lost Bus was pretty much going to run before I learned Sunday Rules wouldn’t be entered, but I was running for third, and it turned out better than that.“There wasn’t a lot of speed in the race, and I told Fernando to go to the front.”Asked about her next race: “She’s a Cal-bred, so there are plenty of options.” MIKE SMITH, TARA’S TANGO, THIRD: “I tried to get her out of there quickly today and we did much better (than usual) but we couldn’t quite keep up with that forty-four pace. I was having to really, really pedal to stay head and head with them and that’s a long way to be on her, that hard, the whole time. I couldn’t keep her in a hard drive.“I thought I could let them go, give her a bit of a breather and then go at them again on the outside and it worked, but, I just didn’t get there in time.“You just try and do the right thing and sometimes when it works, you’re the hero. Sometimes though, if you don’t win, you don’t look so good.” TRAINER QUOTESlast_img read more

STABLE NOTES BY ED GOLDEN – WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 21, 2016

first_imgESPINOZA: CHROME ‘DOING HIS BEST RIGHT NOW’MELATONIN WORKS FOR BREEDERS’ CUP CLASSICBAFFERT MULLS HIS AWESOME AGAIN STARTERSOPTIONS ARE OPEN FOR VERSATILE TARA’S TANGO CALIFORNIA CHROME ‘NEVER BETTER’ FOR AWESOME AGAIN            If anybody knows California Chrome better than trainer Art Sherman and his son and assistant, Alan, it’s Victor Espinoza.The regular pilot of the storybook California-bred, Espinoza has ridden the five-year-old chestnut 17 times, winning 12, including the last five in a row. He will be heavily favored to make it six a week from Saturday, Oct. 1, when he runs in the Awesome Again Stakes, one of five Grade I, “Win and You’re In” Breeders’ Cup Challenge events on the second day of Santa Anita’s 23-day Autumn Meet.Santa Anita hosts the Breeders’ Cup World Championships for an unprecedented ninth time on Nov. 4 and 5.Espinoza says California Chrome is better than ever, but walked the tightrope when asked whether his “Slipped Saddle Saga” in the Dubai World Cup last March 26 or his spectacular, front-running, five-length triumph in the Pacific Classic Aug. 20 was his best race.            “He ran insane in Dubai,” the gregarious and ever-accommodating Espinoza said by phone from New York where he was visiting family. “Going a mile and a quarter on a track a world away with the saddle slipping and running the way he did was amazing.“The saddle slipped all the way to his hind end. The girth was fully up on his hips. It was tough for me to handle, but we got it done (winning comfortably by nearly four lengths).“I don’t know whether the Dubai race or the Pacific Classic was his best, but I’m confident of one thing: He’s doing his best right now.“I watched a video of his workout last Saturday and he looked great. He’s absolutely better than he’s ever been. I’ve never seen him doing as well as he’s doing now, except perhaps in his three-year-old season when he was on his way to the Kentucky Derby.”Be that as it may, it’s a no-brainer that Espinoza and Chrome are on their way to the Hall of Fame. And lest we forget, it was just 15 months ago that Espinoza guided American Pharoah to the first Triple Crown sweep in 37 years.Perhaps only one question lingers: will their selections be unanimous?The Awesome Again shares the marquee with the Zenyatta Stakes for fillies and mares, three and up, expected to lure three-time champion Beholder and Stellar Wind, the champion three-year-old filly of 2015 who upset three-time Eclipse Award winner Beholder in the Grade I Clement L. Hirsch Stakes at Del Mar July 30.Supplementing the headline events will be the FrontRunner Stakes for two-year-olds at 1 1/16 miles; the Chandelier Stakes for two-year-old fillies at 1 1/16 miles; and the Rodeo Drive Stakes for fillies and mares, three and up, at 1 ¼ miles on Santa Anita’s renovated turf course.Victory gives the winning horse in each race a fees paid berth to its respective Breeders’ Cup event.On Saturday, Oct. 8, the Grade I Santa Anita Sprint Championship for three year olds and up at six furlongs will serve as a springboard to the $1.5 million TwinSpires Breeders’ Cup Sprint on Nov. 5.Santa Anita’s 23-day Autumn Meet starts on Friday, Sept. 30 and concludes on Sunday, Nov. 6. Friday’s feature is the $100,000, Grade III Eddie D., named for one of the game’s greatest riders, Hall of Fame member Eddie Delahoussaye who celebrates his 65th birthday today. The ever-popular Cajun will be on hand to present a trophy to the winning connections.Entries for next Saturday and Sunday’s races will be taken a week from today, Wednesday, Sept. 28. Friday’s opening day card will be drawn on Tuesday, Sept. 27. First post time opening day will be 1 p.m. First post Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 1 and 2, will be 12:30 p.m. ZENYATTA OR SPINSTER FOR TARA’S TANGOTara’s Tango, winner of the Grade I Santa Margarita at a mile and an eighth last March, is nominated to the Grade I, $300,000 Zenyatta Stakes at the same distance here on Oct. 1 but could wind up in the Grade I, $500,000 Juddmonte Spinster Stakes at Keeneland on Oct. 9.The Spinster also is at 1 1/8 miles.“She’s going to run in one or the other,” Dan Ward, assistant to Jerry Hollendorfer, said Wednesday morning. “It would be easier for her to run in the Spinster than it would against Beholder and Stellar Wind here, that’s for sure, so it’s a possibility even though she’d have to ship. She’s training well.”Tara’s Tango, a four-year-old gray daughter of Unbridled’s Song, is owned and was bred by Stonestreet Stables, LLC, which also owns Cavorting, winner of the Grade I Personal Ensign and the Grade I Ogden Phipps.            Trained by Kiaran McLaughlin, Cavorting is ticketed for the Longines Breeders’ Cup Distaff at Santa Anita on Nov. 4. Depending on how she performs in her next start, Tara’s Tango could go there also, although the Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint at seven furlongs Nov. 5 could be an option should Stonestreet opt not to run both fillies in the Distaff.Tara’s Tango has fared well sprinting, having won the Grade III Rancho Bernardo Handicap at 6 ½ furlongs Aug. 17 at Del Mar and finishing third by a neck in the Grade II Santa Monica Stakes at seven furlongs last Jan. 23. MELATONIN WORKS TOWARDS BC CLASSIC            Santa Anita Handicap winner Melatonin worked five furlongs Wednesday morning in 1:02 as he prepares for the $6 million Breeders’ Cup Classic at Santa Anita Nov. 5. His fractional times were 23.80, 37 flat and 50 flat.“He did it nice and easy,” trainer David Hofmans said. “We’re pointing to the Breeders’ Cup Classic. He seems to like the track. It’s in very good condition.“We backed off training over the main track at Del Mar, and although we jogged him and galloped him on the training track, I lost enough time where I couldn’t make the Awesome Again. He likes time between his races but this is a lot of time and the Awesome Again is a tough spot.”Melatonin last raced on June 25, winning the Grade I Gold Cup at Santa Anita earning a fees paid berth to the Classic valued at $150,000.Meanwhile, Bob Baffert, just returned from the Keeneland Sales, was non-committal on which, if any, of the five horses he has nominated to the Awesome Again would compete in the race, although Cupid is out as he was en route to Parx for Saturday’s Pennsylvania Derby.That leaves American Freedom, Arrogate, Dortmund and Hoppertunity.“It’s too early to make any calls on the race yet,” Baffert said Wednesday morning after watching Chandelier Stakes candidate American Cleopatra work five furlongs in company with Noted and Quoted. Each was timed in 59.60. “I just got back; I’ve got to watch them train.”Win the Space, who was “pulled up and walked off” when last of nine behind California Chrome in the Pacific Classic, will come back in the Awesome Again.“I guess it wasn’t his day,” trainer George Papaprodromou said of the four-year-old Pulpit colt who threw a scare into Melatonin in the Gold Cup when he finished second at 24-1 under Gary Stevens.“Maybe it was the track (at Del Mar), I don’t know. The horse came back fine. It was one of those things. He didn’t fire that day.”Papaprodromou said Stevens would be back aboard for the Awesome Again. FINISH LINES: Santa Anita will offer large guaranteed pools every day this meet, starting Saturday, Oct. 1 with $750,000 on the Late Pick 4 and a $100,000 Pick 6. Thursdays, Fridays and on holiday Mondays the Late pick 4 will be guaranteed at $300,000, and $500,000 on Saturdays and Sundays after Oct. 1, when the $100,000 Pick 6 will remain in play . . . Multiple graded turf stakes winner Om, a fast-closing second to front-running winner Midnight Storm in the Del Mar Derby, is ticketed for the Grade II City of Hope Mile on Saturday, Oct. 8, with the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Mile Nov. 5 his ultimate goal. “I’m real happy with him,” trainer Dan Hendricks said. Stakes-winning turf specialist Obviously, also set for the City of Hope, worked six furlongs on the training track in 1:12.20 Monday for Phil D’Amato, who also sent Shoemaker Mile winner Midnight Storm five furlongs on the same surface in 1:01. The leading trainer at Santa Anita’s Summer Meet and the recent Del Mar session plans to bring the latter up to the Breeders’ Cup Mile on works. “Things are going well,” D’Amato said. “I can’t wait to debut a lot of two-year-olds here at Santa Anita.” . . .

For stating what the rate of this wig is i was seriously amazed. I acquired it with the intention of producing it into an isabel magnolia cosplay from attack on titan and by that i indicate cutting it and placing it into pig tails. I figured for what i desired to do with it, it’d be a very good low-cost sufficient wig for me to type myself. So i was genuinely stunned when it essentially arrived. It really is possibly 1 of the softest wigs i’ve ever had, which took me again a lot. It is a large amount of hair but not awkward, and despite the fact that folks complained about the fringe i observed that after i might swept it to one aspect it did keep place. The cap beneath is black which is a minimal aggravating, a crimson or skin colored a person would have been far better to hide the beneath. The tabs which are supposed to enable fasten it / adjust the size had no the place to be place into, so the dimensions, on mine, are unable to be adjusted. The comb you get with it is amazing, i have essentially used it on my other wigs, whilst the prime of the wig can not be brushed due to the small layers and the cap underneath you can easy it with your hands.I purchased this to go to a costume get together as poison ivy and for the price tag it can be a gorgeous wig, the color is vibrant and it has a gorgeous smooth texture. Imagining of getting some of the other colors just for enjoyable.I was sent this product straight from the seller for free in exchange for an trustworthy overview. The wig comes in a apparent deal surrounded in card to continue to keep it in put, you get a hair internet, also in clear packaging and a comb. The wig is pretty nicely designed and really gentle to contact, its a charming shiny crimson colour and the duration is 28inches/ 70 cm. At the time on it appears good and has far more of a purely natural wave to it. Im not a single for donning wigs but this was very easy to set on, you brush all your hair into a pony tail, you then place the hair web over ur hair securing it less than the net then you can place the wig on, use the comb that appear with it to brush out the wig. I would say this would be best for fancy costume and i will be working with this as component of my new several years extravagant costume costume for work ( we have to costume in extravagant gown at perform on new several years eve)washing it was uncomplicated, i used a little big of infant shampoo and put it below heat functioning water, i then gave it a minimal rub with a towel then brushed it with the comb supplied and left it to end drying which took fewer than 20mins.But it sheds a large amount, it can be much too small for my head (and i do not have a big head), the wig cap that arrived with it was worthless.
