Jose Callejon has seen a lot of maturity and growth in the current Napoli side but still uncertain of the best team he’s played in.Napoli will confront Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League tonight and can take a big step toward the Last 16 with a win.The Spaniard sat alongside Coach Carlo Ancelotti in the pre-match Press conference, and he was asked if this is the best team he’s played in.“I think we’ve been strong every year,” Callejon disclosed to Football Italia.“I couldn’t tell you if it’s the strongest team, there have been a lot of strong players in the last few years.Top 5 Serie A players to watch for next weekend’s activity Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 11, 2019 With the international activity cooling down for the next month, we go back to the Top 5 players to watch in Serie A next…“We’ve been playing together for a long time, we know each other more and more and over the years we’ve become more mature.“We’ve played important games and over the years we’ve all become stronger.“We’re aware of being more mature, then the Coach is giving us more confidence. We can do great things and we hope to do well tomorrow.”Callejon hasn’t scored yet this season, although he does have an assist in each of his last three games.“I’m calm, I’m helping the team in every game, I assist my teammates. This is how football is, when the goal doesn’t come then it’s true that you feel it, but then once one comes you get many more.”
Post a comment 2:04 Share your voice Disney and Panasonic talked up a new Mickey Mouse-themed ride at Disney World. Tyler Lizenby/CNET Mickey Mouse turned 90 years old in November, but the classic cartoon character has never had a theme park ride devoted to him in the empire he spawned. Until now. Mickey and Minnie Mouse’s Runaway Railway will debut at the Disney Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida, this fall. The entertainment giant is partnering with Panasonic for the projection technology that’ll power the attraction. The two companies talked up the new attraction Monday at CES, the world’s largest technology show, during a Panasonic press conference at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. “For the first time, our guests will be able to step into Mickey Mouse’s wacky and unpredictable animated world,” Tom LaDuke, a technical director for Walt Disney Imagineering, said on stage. 0 CES 2019 13 Photos Tags Watch LG’s rollable OLED TV in action at CES 2019 The big booths of CES 2018 Disney Amazon Panasonic Now playing: Watch this: CES 2019: See all of CNET’s coverage of the year’s biggest tech show.CES schedule: It’s six days of jam-packed events.

The two companies have collaborated before, including on an Avatar-themed ride at Disney World.”They really help us transform a two-dimensional cartoon into an amazing real world experience,” LaDuke said of the partnership with Panasonic. In the US, Panasonic’s brand has fallen out of the limelight since it discontinued making plasma TVs in 2013, but the company is still a CES mainstay. Last year, Panasonic announced a range of new products, including OLED TVs, 4K Blu-ray players with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant integration, and two models in its Technics turntable line: the SP-10R and SL-1000R. Now Panasonic is focused more on providing technology on the back end for other companies, including Disney.During the keynote on Monday, Panasonic also made several other announcements:A partnership with Harley Davidson on a new electric motorcycle called LiveWire. The bike is cellular-connected, and owners can check things like maintenance and battery status from an app. The LiveWire will cost $29,800 and is available for preorder today.A smart home platform in Japan called HomeX, meant to control all the connected devices in your house.

Travelweek Group TORONTO — National Geographic Expeditions and G Adventures have announced new destinations and tours for 2019, all available for sale starting this week. In the past year the National Geographic Journeys trips have delivered the strongest growth of all of G Adventures’ trip styles, says the travel company, with a 10% year-over-year increase among Canadian travellers, and a 25% surge in booking sales compared to the year before. Peru, South Africa, Costa Rica, Morocco and Thailand were the top five most popular destinations booked by Journeys travellers from Canada.“The Journeys story is all about growth. Compared to even two years ago, bookings of these trips have soared more than 100% and we’re adding more product to keep up with demand,” says Aizaz Sheikh, Canadian Marketing Director for G Adventures. “In terms of the trend lines, these tours are proving to be one of the most attractive and sellable experiences we offer the travel agent community because of their focus on comfortable accommodations and exclusive experiences. An impressive 58% of Journeys’ Canadian sales were driven by our partner travel agents and advisors, with an average spend of nearly $3,500 per customer.”In terms of the typical Journeys traveller from Canada, the average person is 55 years old and has booked a trip of 12 days long with five months lead time. A strong majority of those Canadian travellers has been women – who make up 64% of Journeys buyers.Beginning in January, travellers will have the chance to take advantage of Bolivia’s recently-improved tourism infrastructure and experience its stunning landscapes, including the Uyuni Salt Flats, while learning about its rich cultural heritage and visiting one of the highest cities on Earth. Also new in South America for 2019, there’s a tour of Peru’s archaeologically and ecologically-wondrous north that will have travellers exploring cloud forests, hiking a huge waterfall and peering back into pre-Incan times.An additional combination tour of the northern Chachapoyas region, coupled with a visit to iconic Machu Picchu by train, offers a 16-day deep-dive into life in Peru.In Europe, National Geographic Journeys builds on growing international interest in Portugal as a vacation destination with two new tours that are eight or 15 days in length. The first, focusing on Lisbon, Coimbra and Porto, showcases the country’s food, wine and architecture. The second combines one week in Portugal with another in Spain, adding Alhambra with time for wandering through Seville. According to Portugal’s National Statistics Institute, the country welcomed a record 12.7 million international visitors in 2017. In Europe’s Eastern region, a new tour in Hungary and Romania has its launch point in Budapest before moving on to Transylvania, for a dose of history, culture, myths and legends at Bran Castle.Launched in late 2015, National Geographic Journeys has grown from 70 tours in its initial year to 89 different tours in 55 countries today. Since last fall, a special focus on expanding Journeys tours further into Africa and Asia helped bring new travellers to Tanzania, Botswana, Mongolia and Indonesia.Priced from $1,349 per person and from six to 30 days in length, the 2019 itineraries “are designed for travellers who appreciate having free time and flexibility, but value the structure and security that come with group travel.” “We are thrilled with the strong growth of the Journeys line and are pleased to expand our offerings allowing consumers to experience different parts of the globe,” adds Heather Heverling, Senior Vice President, National Geographic Expeditions. “It feels good to be able to offer people even more ways to connect with the inspiring community programs and fieldwork each of our organizations support.”The new and updated tours for 2019 are:Highlights of Bolivia (8 days, from $2,549)Peru & Bolivia: Machu Picchu to the Salt Flats (16 days, from $4,999)Explore Northern Peru (9 days, from $3,279)Explore Northern Peru & Machu Picchu (16 days, from $5,119)Discover Portugal (8 days, from $2,199)Iconic Portugal & Spain (15 days, from $4,399)Hungary & Romania Highlights (8 days, from $2,529)Discover Central & Eastern Europe (16 days, from $5,099)More news: Sunwing to further boost Mazatlán service with new flights from OttawaSee gadventures.com/NGJ-2019 or www.nationalgeographicexpeditions/journeys.
