Warren Gatland plans Lions v All Blacks 'decider' in summer of 2021 Warren Gatland has raised the tantalising prospect of a “decider” between the British & Irish Lions and New Zealand in the UK next summer – possibly at Twickenham – as a lucrative warm-up Test before the South Africa tour. Gatland, who led the Lions to a series draw against the All Blacks in 2017, believes the match could generate £5m and revealed he has held discussions with the New Zealand Rugby chief executive, Mark Robinson. The former Wales head coach has been pushing for a warm-up match for the Lions before they head to face the world champions as next year’s series has been condensed to eight matches over five weeks rather than 10 over six, as was the case three years ago.

Rescuers found the family along the banks of the Columbia River on Wednesday morning. Record-size hole opens in ozone layer above the Arctic A rare hole has opened up in the ozone layer above the Arctic, in what scientists say is the result of unusually low temperatures in the atmosphere above the north pole. The hole, which has been tracked from space and the ground over the past few days, has reached record dimensions, but is not expected to pose any danger to humans unless it moves further south. If it extends further south over populated areas, such as southern Greenland, people would be at increased risk of sunburn. However, on current trends the hole is expected to disappear altogether in a few weeks. Low temperatures in the northern polar regions led to an unusual stable polar vortex, and the presence of ozone-destroying chemicals such as chlorine and bromine in the atmosphere – from human activities – caused the hole to form.

"I decided to get procedures done during quarantine because it allowed me to heal at my own pace," Aaron Hernandez, who had lip fillers and buccal (cheek) fat removal in Los Angeles, told the BBC.
Donald Trump boat parade draws hundreds in Pennsylvania: 'We are the majority and we're going to make some noise' Sunday’s events also included a road tour of Trump backers, and anti-hate rallies by anti-Trump demonstrators. A few hundred boaters doubling as Donald Trump voters crossed the channel between Lake Erie and Presque Isle Bay, honking horns, flying their blue “Keep America Great” flags and waving to the dozens of land-based MAGA backers who took in the spectacle from the South Pier. Vessels of all sizes, including personal watercraft, took part in Sunday’s event, which was organized by 19-year-old Greene Township resident Austin Detzel as a way to show support for Trump’s reelection campaign amid a campaign season curtailed by the COVID-19 pandemic. “It’s been happening all over the country and honestly I thought someone in Erie would have done this by now, but nobody did,” said Detzel, a Gannon University sophomore who rode a personal watercraft. “With COVID, there’s nothing to do anyway.
WNBA players react to Breonna Taylor settlement The league, which began its playoffs on Tuesday, dedicated the 2020 season to Taylor and the Say Her Name movement, which raises awareness for Black female victims of police violence.

Hong Kong court upholds face masks ban despite coronavirus As health experts in Hong Kong call for masks to be made mandatory to tackle coronavirus, a ban on their use that was introduced in response to protests has been largely upheld by the appeal court. The court also used its ruling to push back at accusations that its role in assessing the constitutionality of laws was an affront to Beijing. The judgment, delivered on Thursday afternoon, said Hong Kong’s chief executive could use colonial-era laws to make emergency decrees for public safety and that banning masks was constitutional at unlawful gatherings.
