Trevor Noah Snaps Back.


Trevor Noah is not only a brilliant individual, but a great comedian, and a damn good television host.  But no one is above scrutiny of their remarks.  Recently Mr. Noah made some remarks regarding the backgrounds of the French football (soccer) team, that he was totally justified in conveying, but not everyone in France was too thrilled about it.  In a behind the scenes look at The Daily Show, Trevor explained his thoughts and feelings about the comments made towards him, and he “clapped back” in spectacular fashion.  I’ll let him explain his plight in the Comedy Central video below.

Deutschland has become the country of the World Cup Winners, but soccer wasn’t the only excitement in Rio during the tournament.  Diplo and Major Lazer had quite an electric performance on the rooftop of the Budweiser Hotel in Rio de Janeiro.  Check out the video below.

Skipark 360.


Sweden’s CF Møller Architects has just signed off on the new and spectacular Skipark 360°- set to be the largest indoor ski resort in the world.  The winter park will house the only indoor ski slope to meet the requirements for hosting the World Cup, measuring 700 meters long and with a drop of 160 meters.  At a height of approx. 135 m, it will be one of Sweden’s largest buildings, and will become a landmark in the forest landscape just outside Stockholm.  The complex will also contain a 3.5 km cross-country skiing tunnel, an arena for biathlon, ice hockey, bandy and figure skating, and a snow park for snowboarding.  There will also be restaurants, shops, a spa and hotel and conference facilities, offering panoramic views of the countryside.  Skipark 360° is estimated to cost between 1.5 to 2 billion Swedish kroner ($219 – 292 million), with work to start at the end of 2013.
