Last night, news connecting Cesc Fábregas to Chelsea emerged, something that seemed like a good fit, on paper. With time to follow-up, reports out of England have added a new twist to the Barcelona star’s transfer story: Chelsea’s manager may not share the same excitement as his board.
According to The Independent, José Mourinho would like Chelsea to look elsewhere to bolster his third place squad. Those places include: Atlético Madrid, where Koke is being targeted; Juventus, where Paul Pogba is the object of many teams’ desires; and Porto, where central defender Eliaquim Mangala has drawn the Blues’ attention. With young Brazilian Oscar reportedly meeting Mourinho’s need for creativity in midfield, Chelsea may not be among Fábregas’s main suitors.

Diego Costa has completed a medical examination at Chelsea and he is now poised to complete his £32m transfer from Atlético Madrid. The Brazil-born striker, who is a part of the Spain squad that is currently preparing for the World Cup finals, has been identified by José Mourinho as being what Chelsea need to win the Premier League title.
The London club were four points short of last season’s champions, Manchester City, and their challenge came in spite of the lack of goals from their centre-forwards. Samuel Eto’o, Fernando Torres and Demba Ba contributed a total of 19 in the league, with Eto’o scoring nine of them. Mourinho would bemoan the shortfall at various junctures of his first season back at Chelsea.
He believes that the powerful and ruthless Costa can make the difference next time…

Joan Didion opens her famous essay on her New York years with this: “It is easy to see the beginnings of things, and harder to see the ends.” She arrived in the city at age 20, from Sacramento, intending to stay six months and left eight years later. We came to western Colorado in our twenties expecting what? We didn’t know, beyond a new ski area and jobs with a new ski school. Now, 38 years later, I agree with Didion that seeing beginnings is easier than puzzling through endings, their tangles of reasons and meaning.

Google has already started to see a stream of new requests to be digitally “forgotten,” following a ruling by the European Court of Justice on a complaint by a Spanish man seeking to have results related to his name and a property closure removed from the search engine were successful. It’s not a good sign for Mountain View; these requests could quickly become a big new headache for the search provider to deal with, especially if these initial requests are representative of what’s to follow.
The requests for removal of results come from an ex-politician looking to be re-elected, who would rather links detailing bad behavior in office not appear under his name; a doctor who doesn’t like the negative reviews from patients that appear when he’s searched for; and a convicted paedophile who wants details of his court conviction for possession of child abuse images taken down.

The company works with a number of hand-picked curators who sell their items on Reissued, such as Decades, Urban Americana, OneFortyThree, A Current Affair, Satya Twena Millnery, Ascot & Hart and Amber Interiors, and others. These sellers have full control of their profile, explains DeLonge…
