‘Just give Tottenham man the Ballon d’Or now’ Fans excited after pre-season win

His only goal of the campaign came in the Europa League, but a series of posts on Twitter showing him training have made the White Hart Lane faithful hopeful they will see Lamela at his best.Two goals in a pre-season friendly win against Toronto have helped with a few tongue in cheek tweets from supporters, which you can see below.Will Erik Lamela come good this season?

Baby needs bottle, diapers, Web site

first_imgIt’s not known exactly how many, but the practice is no longer limited to parents in Web design or information technology. They worry that the name of choice might not be available by the time their babies become teens or adults, just as someone claimed the “.com” for Britney Spears’ 11-month-old son before she could. The trend hints at the potential importance of domain names in establishing one’s future digital identity. Think of how much a typical teen’s online life now revolves around Facebook or News Corp.’s MySpace. Imagine if one day the domain could take you directly to those social-networking profiles, blogs, photo albums and more. “It is the starting point for your online identity,” said Warren Adelman, president of registration company GoDaddy.com Inc., which sells basic domain name packages for about $9 a year. “We do believe the domain name is the foundation upon which all the other Internet services are based.” NEW YORK – Besides leaving the hospital with a birth certificate and a clean bill of health, baby Mila Belle Howells got something she won’t likely use herself for several years: her very own Internet domain name. Likewise newborn Bennett Pankow joined his four older siblings in getting his own Internet moniker. In fact, before naming his child, Mark Pankow checked to make sure “BennettPankow.com” hadn’t already been claimed. “One of the criteria was, if we liked the name, the domain had to be available,” Pankow said. It was, and Pankow quickly grabbed Bennett’s online identity. A small but growing number of parents are getting domain names for their young kids, long before they can do more than peck aimlessly at a keyboard. Hundreds of companies sell domain names with suffixes like “.com,” “.org” and “.info,” which individuals can then link to personal Web sites and e-mail accounts. Parents simply visit one of those companies’ Web sites, search for the name they want and, if no one else has claimed it yet, buy it on the spot with a credit card. There’s no guarantee, though, that domain names will have as central a role in online identity. After all, with search engines getting smarter, Internet users can simply type the name of a person into Google. “Given the pace of change on the Internet, it strikes me as a pretty impressive leap of faith that we’re going to use exactly the same system and the same tools … 15 to 20 years from today,” said Peter Grunwald, whose Grunwald Associates firm specializes in researching kids and technology. Still, even if the effort is for naught, $9 a year is cheap compared with the cost of diapers and college tuition. Besides providing an easy-to-remember Web address, the domain name makes possible e-mail addresses without awkward numbers – as in “JohnSmith24”, because 23 other John Smiths had beaten your child to Google Inc.’s Gmail service. Although some parents have yet to use the domain names they’ve bought, others are sending visitors to baby photos, blogs and other personal sites. Domain name owners have a variety of options to have their personal sites hosted, typically for free or less than $10 a month. They include baby-geared services like TotSites.com and BabyHomePages.net. There are downsides to all this, though: An easy-to-remember domain also makes a child easier for strangers to find. Chances are one only needs to know a child’s name and add “.com.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
