Jennifer Lopez, 51, says she has ‘never done Botox or surgery’ after Instagram comment on her youthful looks | Ents & Arts News

Jennifer Lopez has hit back at an Instagram user who claimed the star’s youthful looks are down to “tons” of Botox.

The 51-year-old responded to a post to clarify “for the 500 millionth time” that she has “never done Botox or any injectables or surgery”.

Lopez had posted a video on the social media site, showing her glowing skin after saying she had used a face mask from her own J Lo Beauty range, which sparked the exchange.

Lopez walked the Versace catwalk in 2019 in a recreation of the famous jungle dress she wore to the Grammys in 2000

“Honestly, I cannot even see a line on my face,” she says in the clip, with the camera close-up to her skin. “It is glowy and gorgeous and tight and yummy.”

She continues: “I feel like it took 10 years off my face.”

The video has been viewed more than 7 million times, with many fans commenting on how Lopez achieves her youthful looks.

While many said it was down to her healthy lifestyle, others were not convinced.

“But can I just mention that brows and forehead doesn’t move at all when you talk or try to express,” one commenter said. “You definitely have Botox. And tons of it. And it’s all good. Just saying.”

Lopez responded by saying: “LOL thats just my face!!! ….For the 500 millionth time… I have never done Botox or any injectables or surgery!! Just sayin.”

NHL-Swede Lundqvist to have open heart surgery

December 28, 2020

(Reuters) – Washington Capitals goalie Henrik Lundqvist is to undergo open heart surgery, he said on Monday

The 38-year-old Swede, who enjoyed huge success with the New York Rangers before signing with the Capitals in October, had previously announced he would sit out the upcoming NHL season due to a heart condition.

“Last 3 weeks my focus has shifted from training camp and the upcoming season to my health and what I can and can’t do,” Lundqvist posted on Twitter.

“Scheduled for an open heart surgery now – aortic valve replacement, aortic root and ascending aortic replacement, to be more exact.

“We all have our mountains to climb. Staying positive here and set on the road to recovery.”

The Rangers bought out the final year of Lundqvist’s contract in September, ending the Swede’s 15-season run as the face of the NHL’s most valuable franchise. He later signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract with the Capitals.

“The Capitals and the entire hockey world are with you Hank, and wish you a speedy recovery,” the Capitals wrote on Twitter.

Lundqvist holds over 50 Rangers franchise records, including the all-time mark for wins, appearances by a goalie, shutouts, playoff appearances and playoff wins.

Known as “The King”, Lundqvist also won the Vezina Trophy as the NHL’s best goaltender for the 2011-12 season and was a finalist for the award in four other years.

Lundqvist, who helped Sweden claim the Olympic gold medal in 2006, has earned more career NHL wins (459) than any other non-North American born goaltender and reached the 400-win mark faster than any other goaltender.

Lundqvist’s playing time decreased last season with the emergence of rookie Igor Shesterkin.

Woman requires surgery, ongoing treatment after dog bite | The Border Mail

news, local-news,

WARNING: This story contains a graphic photograph A Wodonga woman continues to recover from a dog bite attack which left a large hole in her arm. Heather Saunders requires ongoing medical treatment following Sunday morning’s incident, which appeared to have involved a blue heeler. She had been walking with her husband, Trevor, on Yarralumla Drive before the incident. The pair had stepped off the sidewalk to let a man pass with the blue heeler near the intersection of Huon Creek Road. “The dog looked friendly,” she said. “All of the sudden he just jumped on my chest with his paws and I put both hands out to push him down. “He grabbed my arm.” The dog remained on her arm as the owner tried to drag it off. He had been apologetic and said it was a rescue dog. The pair were unable to get his details. “We had to get home and when I took my jacket off, I realised there was a hole there in my arm,” Mrs Saunders said. “The thing that worries me is that it could have been a child. “I think if it’s like that, it should have a muzzle on it.” IN OTHER NEWS: Blue heelers can be aggressive and cattle dogs can be known to attack people. Mrs Saunders spent a day in Albury hospital with deep bite marks and underwent surgery. Doctors thought plastic surgery may have been required. The Wodonga woman needed stitches, a tube inserted, antibiotics and other treatment. Her arm has become swollen and there are continuing concerns about infection. “The dog looked friendly,” she said on Tuesday after having the wound dressed. “It had moved to get itself towards us and the owner had said “oh no, I’m sorry’, and pulled him away. “I think those sorts of dogs should be on properties and used for herding. “But there are a lot of dogs you can trust and this one didn’t show any sign of being aggressive. “I don’t want it put down or anything like that, I just want to raise awareness. “People should be mindful when they’re walking.” Mr Saunders also didn’t think the animal should be euthanised. “I don’t know what can be done to tell the truth,” he said. “We just want people to be aware there are dogs out there walking the streets without a muzzle. “The problem would be if the dog was walking the streets and it went past a child, it would have almost killed it with that bite.” Wodonga Council bans people from owning dogs involved in attacks and will not register or renew the registration of a dangerous dog, and orders such dogs be removed from the municipality.

Roger Federer to miss Australian Open, knee surgery, schedule

Tennis fans Down Under have been dealt a crushing blow as Roger Federer’s team revealed he plans to skip the Australian Open.

AP reports the Swiss maestro will miss the first grand slam of 2021 as he continues to recover from two knee operations.

Federer’s manager Tony Godsick said the tennis legend won’t rush back to the court for the tournament at Melbourne Park, which is scheduled to begin on February 8.

“Roger has decided not to play the 2021 Australian Open,” Godsick told AP in a statement.

“He has made strong progress in the last couple of months with his knee and his fitness. However, after consultation with his team, he decided that the best decision for him in the long run is to return to competitive tennis after the Australian Open.

“I will start discussions this coming week for tournaments that begin in late February and then start to build a schedule for the rest of the year.”

Earlier this month Federer warned he was in a “race against time” to be fit after two rounds of knee surgery, which saw him pull out of much of 2020 — even before COVID-19 caused havoc with the schedule.

The Australian Open was supposed to begin in January but because of pandemic-related complications, was pushed back until early February. It was hoped the delay would give Federer enough time to recover from his injuries and take part in the major but sadly, that isn’t the case.

Shortly before Christmas Australian Open tournament director Craig Tiley said he had been in touch with the 39-year-old and he was going through his normal pre-season training routine in Dubai.

“Every player, including Roger, has made a commitment to travel to Melbourne to play,” Tiley said a week ago.

“He did say to us that February 8 was a more suitable date for him in terms of preparing for the Australian Open … but a lot will depend on how he responds to his surgery in the next two to three weeks of training.”

Federer has won the Australian Open six times but after losing in the 2020 semi-final to Novak Djokovic, missed the rest of the interrupted 2020 season following surgery and could only watch as Rafael Nadal matched his record 20 grand slam titles with a 13th victory at the French Open.

Meanwhile, many of the world’s top players have committed to playing the Australian Open including Djokovic, Ash Barty and Serena Williams.

All players must undergo a mandatory 14-day quarantine on arrival, during which they will constantly be tested for COVID-19 but allowed to train for five hours a day in a bio-secure bubble.

“Although the AO will look a bit different to previous years, the safety of everyone is our top priority,” Tiley said last week.

“We have the opportunity to stage a very safe, and happy slam, and give the players the experience of competing in front of crowds again, something they’ve missed for most of this year.”

The men’s and women’s qualifiers will be held in Doha and Dubai respectively from January 10-13, with players arriving in Melbourne from January 15 on special charter flights.

December 19, 2020

(Reuters) – Indianapolis Colts punter Rigoberto Sanchez is set to feature in Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans, less than three weeks after undergoing surgery to remove a cancerous tumor.

The 26-year-old, who signed with the Colts after going undrafted in 2017, disclosed his diagnosis on Nov. 30 and went under the knife a day later.

He missed the Colts’ victories against Houston and Las Vegas but returned to practice earlier this week and is expected to resume kicking and punting duties on Sunday.

“We’re so happy he’s had a good week and got up to speed really quickly,” Colts coach Frank Reich said.

“We’re confident and excited he’s slated to be back in the lineup.”

Model Zaine Pringle sues Princess Alexandra Hospital over hand surgery

A Brisbane model who has posed in underwear and swimwear campaigns claims a “surgical error” on his injured finger has affected his confidence, self-esteem and future career.

Zaine Alan Pringle has only done two photo shoots – for headwear, such as hats and sunglasses – since the allegedly botched hand surgery at Princess Alexandra Hospital in June 2018.

The 29-year-old is 6ft 1in (185cm) with blonde hair and blue eyes and began modelling when he was 18. He has been repeatedly used by surf, skate and street fashion retailer City Beach.

FiveTwenty Modelling agency started managing him in 2014, and in 2017, he won the national male modelling competition Manhunt Australia to represent the country in Thailand.

Mr Pringle is suing Queensland’s Metro South Hospital and Health Service for $592,803.79 including general damages, past and future loss of income and superannuation, past and future gratuitous care and assistance, and future medical treatment and medication.

He claims the PA Hospital in Woollongabba owed him a duty of care through “reasonable care and skill in the provision of medical services”.

According to his statement of claim, filed in the District Court last week and obtained by on Thursday, Mr Pringle injured his left hand playing AFL in late 2017.

For the next five to six weeks, he “experienced pain in his left ring finger with minimal strength and movement” before his first surgery in March 2018.

The second stage of tendon reconstruction was performed on June 5 that year, involving a tendon graft harvested from his left forearm, his claim states.

However, Mr Pringle claims: “The proximal tendon graft end was attached to the superficial flexor, whereas in fact; it ought to have been attached to the deep flexor tendon stump.”

The alleged error was discovered in July 2018 and he had corrective surgery in November.

“By reason of the surgical error, the plaintiff required three additional surgeries, has sensitivity in the left ring finger, suffers pain at the bottom of the thumb and palm, has reduced functionality in the left hand, has scarring of the left and right forearm and down the finger and palm, and has suffered an adjustment disorder with anxiety and depressed mood,” his statement of claim reads.

Mr Pringle claims the duty of care was breached as a result of the alleged mistakes and a failure to ensure the proper supervision of the surgeon.

Due to his extensive rehabilitation, he “could not commit to many shoots” and attended two for a total of $824.40.

“The plaintiff was able to participate in these shoots as they were for headwear such as hats and sunglasses,” the document states.

“Additionally, the plaintiff began experiencing psychological symptoms related to his injuries, including depression and low self-esteem about the way his hand looked, and anxiety and lack of confidence in relation to social interaction.

“These factors impacted the plaintiff’s ability to return to modelling and ultimately, the plaintiff was unable to maintain his paid work as a model due to his injuries.”

Prior to the incident, he also worked as a passive fire technician with FVS Fire Pty Ltd installing doors, which he says involved a “significant amount of heavy and sometimes awkward manual work”.

Mr Pringle claims he missed a performance appraisal due to his medical appointments and continues to experience “an ongoing impairment to his ability to work due to his injuries”.

This includes difficulty lifting and carrying materials and equipment, repetitive hand movements such as cutting, screwing and joining fixtures, and using hand and power tools.

“The plaintiff is slower and less efficient at work both due to his physical symptoms and his psychiatric symptoms,” the court document states.

He also had plans to grow his modelling portfolio in Japan.

His claim for $310,000 in future economic loss includes the 38 “prospective working years remaining”, which would take him to the age of 67 – the pension age from 2023 onwards.

Mr Pringle claims he has limited transferable skills and future work options and is not academically inclined or suited to office-based employment.

He is being represented by Shine Lawyers.

A spokeswoman for Metro South Hospital and Health Service told on Thursday as the matter is before the court, no comment would be made.

Hawthorn star set for five-month stint on the sidelines following surgery

Hawthorn star Jack Gunston will miss the start of the 2021 season, undergoing surgery for a back issue.

The surgery is to fix an ongoing back issue Gunston has been dealing with for multiple years and is expected to sideline him for up to five months.

This likely means we won’t see the 29-year-old until April or May.

The reigning club best and fairest winner and leading goal kicker averaged 11 disposals, four marks and two inside 50s per game across the 2020 season.

Hawks Chief of Football Graham Wright told the club’s website that they didn’t wish to take any further risks with their star forward.

“Jack has had some issues with his back in recent years and we’ve been able to manage it conservatively, recently however it hasn’t settled and in consultation with Jack, our doctors and his surgeon we believe surgery is in his best interest going forward,” Wright said.

“Recovery for this type of surgery is usually around 4-5 months and it’s important not to rush it.

“While it is disappointing that Jack will miss the start of the season, we won’t take any unnecessary risks and we look forward to seeing him back on the field early in the season.

“Jack is the ultimate professional and will undoubtedly approach his rehab with that same attitude.”

F1’s Grosjean has surgery on both hands

French Formula One driver Romain Grosjean has undergone surgery on both hands after his massive fiery crash at last month’s Bahrain Grand Prix.

“Everything went well,” the 34-year-old Grosjean tweeted late Tuesday.

Grosjean had earlier in the day said the operation was needed to repair thumb ligament damage and clean burn wounds in his left hand, and for treatment on his right hand which he said he broke in the pre-season when he fell at home.

Haas driver Grosjean escaped just in time in a massive crash in which his car was split in two parts and then went up in flames at the November 29 Bahrain race.

Grosjean missed the last two races of the season and did not receive a new contract at Haas which could mean the end of his F1 career.
