Brazilian soccer star Neymar, via his club Barcelona, announced on Wednesday that he no longer will be participating in Copa America and will instead play for his country at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. This is in contrast with his previous declaration that he wanted to play in both tournaments.
Well, the decision isn't really something he could have made up on his own since Barcelona will be taking a huge risk if he was given the go signal to play in both events. Therefore, the choice of picking the Olympics over Copa America made the most sense since Brazil will be playing for pride in their own soil. If his Spanish club allowed him to play in whatever tournament he wants while representing his country, then it could not only affect his conditioning and body for next season but will also risk him getting injured along the way.
Brazil FA and Barcelona have reportedly been in constant talks for several months now, but coming up with a deal about the 24-year old star's availability was more challenging than expected. Obviously, Barcelona fans want him to get as much rest as possible, but Brazilian football fans couldn't imagine a team without its best player. more >>

The UK government reportedly issued a travel warning to those states, particularly intended for the LGBT community, which may find those new laws offensive or invasive.
According to the Independent, the government's Foreign Office issues the new advice, which effectively repels the general advice the same agency issues before it. In that general advice, the LGBT community was advised to "take care abroad," but there was no specific mention of the U.S. states.
The new law in North Carolina, passed last month, provides that businesses in the state have the right to decline service to individuals who see themselves belonging to the LGBT community based on religion. In the "bathroom law," there is a specific provision that says that people should use the public toilet based on their biological sex they were born with, which suggests that they cannot invoke the gender they currently associate with. more >>
