Ex-Spurs boss explains how he met his wife and strikes up unlikely friendship

first_imgIf you like football but you haven’t been watching I’m A Celebrity, what on Earth are you doing?!Harry Redknapp has been in absolutely blinding form and is even the favourite to win the show after his brilliant jokes in episode one where he described how he thought he was a good driver until he accidentally ran over his wife (he tells it much better). Harry is becoming a favourite in the jungle Harry Redknapp is just the best isn’t he? #ImACeleb— Matt Ascroft (@theascroft) November 20, 2018 1 .@Redknapp’s life is a novel. You couldn’t make it up. #ImACeleb pic.twitter.com/vtDLNyAf5y— I’m A Celebrity… (@imacelebrity) November 20, 2018But last night’s instalment of the ITV programme showed a different side to Harry and it was refreshing to see.The former Bournemouth, West Ham and Tottenham boss is obviously a football man first and foremost.However, episode three proves there is a gentler side to the east London lad and we are seeing an unlikely friendship develop between him and flamboyant actor John Barrowman as well as hearing about the adorable story of how he met his wife, Sandra.Harry’s not a bad singer either!We know this because one of the first bits of the show saw Harry and John belt out the classic British tune I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside as the pair and their campmates said hello to a new day in the Australian jungle. Harry Redknapp is easily the best campmate this year🤣 “I thought quail was a fish”“Im not allowed to drive because I ran my wife over once”“I have no sense of smell”“ I killed the flowers with a jet wash”#imacelebrity— Amy Rose☃️🎄❄️ (@amyrosecooperxx) November 20, 2018 Harry and @JohnBarrowman – the bromance we never knew we needed. ⛱ #ImACeleb pic.twitter.com/FoGnSPydUX— I’m A Celebrity… (@imacelebrity) November 20, 2018Harry was not at the centre of things so much, as the standout part of the show was the Bushtucker trial which was done by Anne Hegerty from The Chase.However, Harry was still given a decent amount of air time and there was a lovely moment halfway through where he and John told each other how they met their respective partners.John explained how a series of telephone calls saw him ending up taking his now-partner on a first date alongside the singer Cher (as you do!)There were no A-List celebrities present when Harry met Sandra – whom he’s been with for 54 years – but this story certainly had more of a British charm about it.center_img If I knew Harry Redknapp I would sit him in my front room with a decent pint on like a Sunday afternoon and just say “Go…”I’d sit for hours and listen to his stories. Love it! 🤣 #ImACeleb— Samantha Quek (@SamanthaQuek) November 19, 2018 Harry Redknapp to win 💯 #imaceleb #imacelebrity 💯 pic.twitter.com/wXa4LureRI— Davinia (@mynameisdavinia) November 20, 2018 Shout out to @cher and The Two Puddings ❤ #ImACeleb pic.twitter.com/lQErdI0VXW— I’m A Celebrity… (@imacelebrity) November 20, 2018Harry explained how he and a former West Ham goalkeeper Colin Mackleworth (who ended up becoming an undertaker) approached two girls at a dance (a similar thing to clubbing for the older generation) in Stratford, east London and one of them was Sandra.He said: “Me and my mate Macca, he was a goalkeeper for West Ham, saw these two lovely girls and I said to Macca ‘shall we have a dance with those two?’“Macca is a good looking geezer and I look back on it now and think Sandra must have seen us both coming over and thought ‘I hope I ain’t got him’ and she went for me. 54 years later we’re still going strong.“And Macca ended up as an undertaker so really Sandra had the better deal in the long-term.”This was arguably Harry’s best story yet and these fans couldn’t get enough of it. Episode two, Harry was in his element as he recounted a number of hilarious stories about the time he tried to water his wife’s plants with a jet-washer AND the occasions he didn’t recognise Prince Harry and Princess Beatrice when bumping into them.Get the I’m A Celeb gossip every day with Jamie East’s brand new behind-the-scenes podcastHe says he even thought for a moment the Duke of Sussex was a former player of his!If you need to need to familiarise yourself with these hilarious tales you can see the video below.

Help! My Twitter Account Got Hacked

first_imgIt was Tuesday afternoon. Nine minutes after 3pm. I was standing on the corner waiting at a red light on Grand Avenue in Downtown L.A after just meeting a PR rep from New York. Head in a twirl over the mountain of work that awaited me at my office and thinking about the potential stories the pretty New Yorker pitched. That’s when it happened.My phone vibrated. I pulled it out and saw the message. “Direct from @MaryKnabben: OMG they said he died…Did he? http://t.co?BQ7zvZ6″(READER WARNING – DO NOT CLICK ON THIS LINK OR SUFFER THE SAME FATE AS ME!!)Who died I wondered? I didn’t click the link then. I let it linger. I had a 5pm appointment, three traffic-filled blocks to traverse and emails to send.Did I Miss Something?But as I stood waiting for the light to change I wondered if I had missed a major passing. It wouldn’t be the first time. I often get alerted to news by direct messages and Twitter friends. Nothing new there. The language in the message was, though. OMG. Not very journalistic or the type of lingo you’d expect an adult to write when a luminary passes. Still, I figured it must have been the writing of someone who was stunned.At first I figured this was the case, but in my gut, I knew something seemed weird about the tone of the note. As the light turned green I walked, slung my phone back in my pocket and kept moving. When I got back to the office, overlooking some of the priciest data centers in Los Angeles if not the nation, I scanned the wires and social media, but I couldn’t find anything. Hmmm. My antennae were buzzing. Had I missed it? Did she have a scoop? Before I could dive into my detective mode, 5pm came and I was thrust back into reality. By 6:30 it was over but then then I had to meet a friend at The Standard a few blocks away. By the time I got home I was exhausted and I showered and went to bed without checking further. I Couldn’t Resist ClickingThe next morning I opened up my Hootsuite and looked at the link. There it was, just waiting to be clicked.I checked out @MaryKnabben’s Twitter stream. A fellow journalist from Brazil, we had met at Social Media Week a few weeks earlier when I spoke on a panel on journalism and social media. I liked her. She seemed professional. Her tweets looked normal. Nothing seemed (ph)ishy. So despite a nagging feeling of doubt, I clicked on the link. It took me to a strange site. A pseudo-news site called News 3. But a few seconds of scanning the site, I realized it wasn’t news. It was a pay-per-click factory with an attractive young woman at the top of the page and promises of weight loss. What the hell?  I exited the window, thinking nothing of it. Must have been a wrong link. I should have known better. I should have known right away something was up. But I didn’t. Uh, Oh. Trouble!A few hours later, after a break for lunch, I reopened my Hootsuite account. And there it was. Staring at me. A new tweet on my timeline.A tweet that I. Did. Not. Send. “Losing weight is easy.” I’m 6 feet tall and 160 lbs. I don’t need to lose weight. And I didn’t send that tweet. There was a link at the end of it. I clicked on it. It was the same site. “Please don’t let my Twitter account be hacked,” I pleaded to the powers that be. “Please, please, please. No, no, no.”It was Halloween. And for the first time on this candy holiday I was scared. Panic ModeI deleted the tweet in a heartbeat and immediately changed my password. To my surprise none of my followers replied to the strange tweet. Perhaps that’s because I deleted it so fast.  Phew.At that point I wasn’t sure what the hell happened, but I knew someone had caught me with my pants down. I racked my brain. What happened? I’ve always been so careful… hadn’t I?  Could it be one of the hundreds of applications with read and write access to my Twitter account? I know I didn’t always read the fine print, but I knew right away that this was a long shoot. No, it couldn’t have been Goodreads or Digg. No way. No way…Then I realized just how un-careful I had been. I realized what it was and who the culprit was, too.Apparently Mary was hacked. She told me she didn’t see any changes in her account except for auto-DMing everyone who follows her that “shady link.”I had heard the horror stories. Now I was in one. I got phished. I clicked a funny link.Stupid. So, so stupid. I couldn’t believe it.Emergency CleaningI knew what I had to. I deleted all of my cookies, went through the process of changing my main online passwords (email, banking, social media), ran a virus scan and restarted my computer. I have so many online passwords I knew I couldn’t change them all, but the important ones I changed immediately. If someone wants access to my Friendster account, go ahead. It was Halloween night and I had a party to go to. After more than an hour of dreaming up new password combos, I waited for my virus status like a patient expecting a STD results phone call from the doctor. No trojan horses popped up. Thankfully. I breathed a sigh of relief.But I knew I had dodged a bullet. Exhausted and mad at myself, I signed out of my browser still steaming, swearing I would never make this mistake again.I hope.  adam popescu A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts Tags:#hacks#phishing#twitter last_img read more

When All of Your Eggs are in One Big Deal

first_imgThe deal that you are working on is enormous. It’s not quite enough to make your number for the year, but it is enough to get you more than halfway there. The prospect is engaged and compelled to change, and you are excited. So excited, in fact, that you focus on nothing else. You give up prospecting. You stop following up on the early stage deals with the revenue that is a fraction of your big deal. And you put all of your effort into winning your big deal.There are days and weeks between meetings with nothing to do. Whenever you are asked about new opportunities, you hold up your big deal as proof that you are working, and your equally excited sales manager moves on without another question. During calls to review opportunities, you share the latest happenings on your big deal, and everyone seems pleased that things are progressing. And then, without warning, your prospective client has a change of initiatives, and like magic, your deal disappears.A big deal is not a shield that you can use to protect yourself from having to do the work of nurturing your dream clients, prospecting, and building your pipeline. Big deals are important, but they can cause the same psychological response as a lottery ticket when the dollar amount is ridiculously large. You massively overestimate your chances of winning, treating 1 in a 1,000,000 the same as 1 in a 1,000. Because the deal is big, you overestimate your chances of winning because the payoff is so much greater than an average deal. The difference is that when you buy a lottery ticket, you don’t quit your job.Here is a dose of truth. Big deals tend to take time to win. There are often big gaps between meetings without there being anything you can or should be doing to pursue the deal. This time is best spent prospecting and following up your other deals, hedging your bet on the one big deal and protecting you from harm should your big deal go South. Even if you win the deal, you will have built a pipeline that will serve you while you work on your big deal, as well as after you win it. Essential Reading!

Khaira warned against trespass bid: Amarinder

first_imgPunjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Sunday condemned Sukhpal Singh Khaira for trying to force his way into former Cabinet Minister Rana Gurjit Singh’s factory in Batala and warned that any attempt by the Aam Aadmi Party leader to take the law in his hands would be dealt with as per law.“Mr. Khaira was indulging in cheap street politics to grab media and public attention ahead of Monday’s Shahkot bypoll,” said Capt. Amarinder, adding that Mr. Khaira’s trespass bid amounted to sheer violation of the law, with the potential to trigger violence.“Despite being warned about the serious trouble it could lead to, considering the fact that the move could have provoked the mill workers and staff into retaliation, Mr. Khaira did not desist from moving towards the premises,” said the Chief Minister. He termed it an attempt on the AAP leader’s part to divert public attention on the eve of polling.Capt. Amarinder said the AAP had a history of resorting to theatrics in the run-up to any election and Mr. Khaira’s act had exposed the party’s desperation in the face of their imminent wipe-out in the Shahkot by-election.Meanwhile, Mr. Khaira said he was in Buttar Siviato to inspect the villages adjacent to the sugar factory including Dhardion, Buttar, Gagarbhana, where the villagers had told him about their problems due to pollution caused by the factory.“I had not gone to Buttar Sivia to fight with anybody but to listen to the problems of the people as a public representative so that they could be raised in the Vidhan Sabha,” said Mr. Khaira. He added that he was forcefully stopped outside the factory from examining the ‘drain’ where pollutants from the factory were being thrown. “The police acted as a mute spectator and instead of taking any action against the ‘goons’, they pressurised me to cancel the programme,” said Mr. Khaira.Rana Sugars Private Limited, however, refuted the charges and accused Mr. Khaira of running a malicious campaign against it.“It is so characteristic of Mr. Khaira to resort to theatrics and create a hype and eventually beat a hasty retreat taking one excuse or the other,” Rana Veer Partap Singh, one of the directors of the company and son of Rana Gurjeet Singh, said.Mr. Singh added that the company was running strictly according to the norms of the Environment Ministry and the pollution control board and had obtained all mandatory clearances, which were renewed from time to time after proper scrutiny and examination.last_img read more
