The Powerball jackpot for Saturday's lottery drawing was $150 million but did anyone claim the top prize? The winning numbers in the December 14 draw were 3, 6, 12, 32 and 64. The Powerball was 19 with a Power Play of 3x. There were no jackpot winners, but one ticket holder did match all five white balls to win a $1 million prize. Twelve others matched four white balls and the Powerball to win $50,000 prizes and two others had purchased the Power Play feature, so tripled their wins to $150,000. As nobody claimed the top prize, it rolls over to the next Powerball draw on December 19. The jackpot now stands at $160 million with a cash value of $108.7 million. The last time the top prize was won was in the November 2 draw, when a ticket in California matched all five balls and the Powerball to win the $150 million jackpot. Last month's win was the seventh time the Powerball jackpot has been hit this year. How do you play the Powerball lottery? To play the Powerball lottery, players must … [Read more...] about Powerball Results, Numbers for 12/14/19: Did Anyone Win the $150 Million Jackpot on Saturday (Last) Night?

Writing on The Players' Tribune, Real Madrid's Marcelo pays tribute to his childhood heroes, lifts the lid on the Champions League dream that became a reality and reveals his World Cup mission. Where do we begin?I want to tell you about how my grandfather changed my life. But I also want to tell you about Ronaldo. And about Romario hanging out of the airplane, and about the orange Volkswagen. We have a lot to talk about. Let's start with a smell.It's one of the first things I can remember in my life. When I was about six years old, we were on summer vacation from school, but I would still wake up at 7:30 every morning and take my football down to Botafogo Beach.That's in Rio, where all the best footballers come from!There was this park by the beach with a futsal court and a little slide for kids, and there would always be the same old guy yelling out to the people parking their cars, "One dollar! One dollar! One dollar!"He would "protect" your car for a dollar. I remember the sound of … [Read more...] about Marcelo on Romario, Roberto Carlos, Real Madrid and his World Cup mission with Brazil
This month, a charity on Teesside offering emergency accommodation for homeless young people will close after a long struggle for funds to keep it afloat. Around Britain it's a similar story as a once-vaunted, yet ill-defined "big society" vision, apparently central to David Cameron's political philosophy, collides with the reality of government spending cuts, biting deeply in town halls. With funding for councils being slashed by a third during this parliament alone – and the prospect of even deeper cuts in the next – charities partly dependent on town hall funding are being hit particularly hard. And Nightstop, in the Teesside steel town of Redcar, might have disappeared without trace but for one significant event days before it began winding down. Last month, a sister Nightstop organisation, based on Tyneside – which hopes to now offer its services on Teesside – was honoured by the prime minister with a big society award. For the Northern Echo, the local … [Read more...] about Is this the end of Cameron’s big society?
It’s a bitterly cold winter’s day in Newsham Park in Liverpool, yet a group of people are out in the Grade II listed Victorian park’s landscaped rose garden moving a young tree to a better location while others do litter picking. Until recently, the park, sandwiched between the city’s deprived areas of Tuebrook, Stoneycroft and Kensington, was seen as a no-go area by local residents. Vandals would destroy trees, groups of homeless people and people with addictions would gather, and crime rates were high, exacerbating the social isolation of many residents. Some of the large Victorian buildings around the park house drug rehabilitation centres, hostels for the homeless and other projects, fuelling tension with neighbours. “The disconnect between people in the community, between generations and groups, and the increasing anxiety about crime has resulted in us becoming a very fragmented community and an anxious place,” says Christina Ashworth, a … [Read more...] about Making the right connection helps to combat loneliness
LOS ALAMITOS (CBSLA) — Two horses died after the first race at Los Alamitos Race Course Saturday, one of them trained by Jerry Hollendorfer, who’s had at least eight horses die under his watch this year.

(Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images) Hollendorfer’s horse, Mighty Elijah, a four-year-old gelding, “weakened between horses in the lane, was injured and pulled up inside the furlong marker and was vanned off,” according to official racing results. The other horse, Into a Hot Spot, was also a four-year-old gelding and “gave way and collapsed” after bumping a rival at the start. Hollendorfer has been banned from Santa Anita racetrack in Arcadia and also from Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, but a judge granted an injunction in July that … [Read more...] about Banned Trainer’s Horse Dies At Los Alamitos Race Course
