They announced it on January 18 after spending more than a month on vacation in Los Angeles, where they spent Christmas with Meghan’s mother instead of with the Royal Family, as had been tradition.

By Vanity Fair

Of course, before formally abandoning their life as royals, the Sussexes returned to the UK in March to say goodbye and finalize the deals for their long-awaited freedom, which was finally granted by Queen Elizabeth II in April. And since then, they have never seen each other again in person.

That is why all the British people were anxious to know how the next Christmas would go when Harry and Meghan had to return yes or yes to England.

Marie Claire | When breast cancer is also a stigma

Alla Mazur embodies the news for several generations of viewers Ukrainians. Firmly and confidently, for 23 years informs from the screen about the main events of Ukraine and the world. There is brave. His clear position in favor of an independent Ukraine has earned him threats of all kinds.

Alla is sensible. He actively participates in the channel’s charity projects, transmitting the story of each hero to the depths of himself. There is strong and by nature a fighter.

Even after learning of her terrible breast cancer diagnosis, she was able to accept it not as a sentence but as a challenge, and with her courage she decided to support many women going through the same thing.

-You just celebrated your 55th birthday. Surely it was not like the previous ones, Neither were your wishes?

-The disease and the fight against it divided my life into “before and after”, crystallized a new coordinate system and put everything in its place. I experienced similar feelings to when my son appeared in my life. I remember back then the car trip after delivery.

I was looking out the window, all familiar streets and familiar landscapes … Everything seemed to be as usual. But I was in a parallel world, full of a new meaning: a small person, the most dear, whom I held in my arms.

It was a completely fantastic feeling! I think there I understood a little better what is important in life and what is secondary.

-How did you find out about the disease?

-My team and I did a lot stories about cancer treatment problems, about new methods and discoveries in the area. As a journalist, I used to dive into the topic to study it in detail.

So he knew what the symptoms were, and he knew that at the slightest suspicion he should see a doctor. Last year, before I went on vacation, I noticed a small lump in the chest. Nothing painful, not too annoying. Just like a pea. I went to the doctor, he did a mammogram, which showed nothing suspicious.

The Marie Claire Ukraine cover of October.

The ultrasound was also quiet. The doctor said that I could go on vacation, avoid the sun and then go to a second consultation. But I returned earlier than planned, noticing that the lump had increased.

Now I think its growth was caused by the stressful situations I faced. Therefore, my first advice to the world: protect yourself from stress. Practice yoga, talk with friends, look for the positive. Let us always remember that we are not alone in this life.

The doctor finally sent me for a biopsy for suspected cancer. And then I faced the reality of our medicine. From the center, where they sent me to look for insurance, they said: “A specialist who is doing a biopsy is now on vacation. So, contact us in a month. “” Now I understand why there are so many cancer patients in Ukraine, “I replied.

And I went to another clinic. I don’t mention specific names and addresses now, because the problem is general. And I’ve learned a lot of stories like this lately. Therefore, the second tip for those who read is: Do not give up.

-¿Stab to set up?

-Not. I tried not to focus on the disease, the bad, but on the proactive and “new” like all those news on my daily schedule: inspection, analysis, consultation …

And, because of my way of being, I also focused on those “signs of destiny” (smiles) that were propelling me forward. When I got to the first meeting with the doctor in charge of my treatment, I noticed that everyone in the clinic had pink ribbons on their scrubs. It was him World Day Against Breast Cancer. I started the treatment in a very symbolic way, and I felt it was a sign that told me: “everything will be fine”.

-What lessonis you learned so far in this whole process?

-Although it sounds simplistic, I feel that there is great wisdom in this: one must learn to love oneself. Especially if you are a woman. Sometimes we are so obsessed with improving our appearance that we forget that initially we have it all: strength, character, temperament. And all that should be loved and appreciated.

Fighting cancer in a sense it brought me closer to myself. I became bolder. And even with the change of hairstyle, which after chemotherapy is inevitable.

My new image is completely European. Finally I got really close to the famous natural beauty and not being afraid of gray hair at all. Today in fact, many young girls think of gray as an option, it is even one of the new trends in coloring. In the hairdresser they call it coloring with ash tones. When I saw myself, I thought: “I like it! I’ll stay like this for now. “

I remember when Temka was born, many wrote to me: “Thank you, your decision to not be afraid of pregnancy in adulthood was the impetus for us not to fear adult motherhood. “I hope now my experience helps many women to not be afraid to be themselves, to accept themselves.

-How quickly did you find the words to tell your family about the diagnosis?

-This is a central problem: we have to learn to talk about cancer out loud. Only in this way can we advance in the fight against this disease, to improve the treatment schemes. Informing family members about the diagnosis is part of the policy of openness that I ask. I know many cases of women who hid their illness and they didn’t even tell their relatives. “

Alla Mazur
“Cancer definitely brought me closer to the idea of ​​natural beauty.”

I was lucky: I didn’t have to hide anything at work or at home. I decided to speak with my son in the evening after posting about my diagnosis on social media. I understood that the news would come out in the morning, Artem would find out everything from a cell phone or from his classmates.

I calmly asked her if she had heard of breast cancer. He replied, “No.” I told him that it was a curable but long-lasting disease, so people are afraid of it. And that maybe I needed surgery. “Are you going to die?”, I wonder. “No of course not!”, I replied almost as a reflex.

-¿Did you want to show yourself strong in front of him?

-Yes, but just as a first reaction. I think the moments of weakness. And sensitivity. I like it when my son says, “I love you.” I would tell you that it is increasingly important to listen to it. And I’m glad that you’re not afraid of those words as a teenager.

Once an actress told me that she was jealous of all the girls around her son, because one of them will become his wife. I, on the contrary, I love in absentia all the girls who will love my son and whom he will love. Artem is not afraid of his feelings and he is not afraid to show them, I am very happy about that.

At the end of the school year, he decided to impress a girl he liked with a gift. Thought for a long time what could I give as a special gift until he remembered his classes in the carpentry shop.

He chose the largest piece of wood there was, cut a heart with a jigsaw, decorated it and wrote “I love you” with a flame. his “heart” was all the rage on the girl, and on the whole school! (smile).

-What are your favorite common activities with your child?

-We recently went fishing. We had a really great time. Artem is a teenager and his hobbies change frequently. Already went through hockey, judo, break dance, guitar, swimming … Now he is beginning to practice skateboarding. I recently accompanied him to the skate park, and I loved it.

It is important that mothers, let’s not just be spectators, but also that we can get involved and participate in the interests and games of our children.

-Do you have many plans forwards?

-A lot of! To start with, I want to regain my skating skills. As a child I had no way of learning and when I was older I could not find the time until the Cosmos listened to my wish and made it happen in the most unexpected way: I received a master class at Christmas in Vienna, in front of the town hall, a luxurious neo-Gothic building, all illuminated by spotlights!

It looked like a movie. Or a fairy tale! I love learning and I am open to everything new, always. I believe that learning not only nourishes us, but also sharpens our capacity for surprise and happiness. It reminds us how wonderful it is to be alive. –

He AC Milan will pay particular attention to the match between Dinamo Kiev and Juventus for the first match of the UEFA Champions Lague, according to a report. Set Red-black is targeting Vitaliy Mykolenko to add a new piece for the left zone of his defense.

The rossoneri allowed Diego Laxalt to go to Celtic Glasgow on the final day of the summer transfer market, which means they don’t have a natural left-back to substitute for Theo Hernandez, though Diogo Dalot and Davide Calabria they can play there if necessary. But they are not nominal left-backs, so it has become a position to reinforce to give the French side rest. recently reported that Vitaliy Mykolenko is one of the players currently being monitored by AC Milan as a possible solution, as the 21-year-old continues to grow stronger and has even been recommended by Andriy Shevchenko, the head coach of the Ukraine national team. A player who arrives with the most important recommendations.

According to the same source, rossoneri They will have their eyes on Mykolenko before a possible play, given that he is a player clearly in his field but that they have not been able to see in first-level European stages, such as, for example, he will be against Juventus in Turin on the first day of the UEFA Champions League group stage.

Not only that, but the report adds that Milan will also look at the other young talents of the Ukrainian club, given that the national team is having a very good time with Shevchenko. The intention is to continue looking for young talents to continue nurturing the first team squad and give more pieces to the project in the long term.


StarCraft 2 stops producing content 10 years after launch, but Blizzard will keep it alive

It seems that new games based on the franchise are not being ruled out, with no sequel announced yet.

In July 2010 it was put on sale StarCraft 2, a game that has remained the dominant RTS as it was with its predecessor. Now, Blizzard announces the cessation of development of new content for this title, which means that we will not have more commanders or chests to buy. But that does not necessarily mean that he will die.

Of course, the lack of news will put off many players, but the servers will remain active as up to now and their developers have confirmed that we will continue to have updates with balance adjustments and bug fixes, “focusing primarily on what matters most to our core and competitive community.”

Qualifying this last point, Blizzard ensures that SC2 will continue to maintain its usual representation in the eSports scene from the hand of ESL Gaming and GSL. What about the IP as such? In the past, the Warcraft fathers had no qualms about listing their most relevant games for the future. Right now StarCraft doesn’t have a sequel on the horizon, but it seems that something like this is not ruled out.

Or at least, it is what can be read between the lines following the closing of the entry. Producer Rob Bridenbecker concludes, “We will keep you posted on any and all plans we have for future forays into the Koprulu sector.” In the absence of something more specific, we remind you that Blizzard has announced Overwatch 2 Y Diablo IV (plus the spin-off Immortal) as well as the imminent expansion Shadowlands WoW, so it will surely be a while until we see their next big game.
