As you reach the last major island of the Florida Keys, you are entering the very southernmost city of the continental United States. Key West measures 1.5 miles by 4 miles. It is 93 miles north of Cuba and 153 miles southwest of Miami at 24.5 degrees above the equator. It’s tropical throughout the year with a history of frost-free weather.Additionally, Key West history hints of Spanish explorers, 19th century pirates, shipwrecks and prospering salvagers, cigar factories, sponge diving, shrimp fleets and visitors ranging from U.S. presidents to homeless wanderers. The Navy has been present on Key West since 1823.Key West is connected to the mainland by the Overseas Highway (U.S. Highway 1), which was built on the old roadbed of the Florida East Coast Railway. The railway, built in 1902, was destroyed by a hurricane in 1935. Emerald-colored waters where the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean meet below the 42 bridges of the Overseas Highway make the drive between Miami and Key West especially beautiful.Surrounding the Island City, 5 miles offshore, is the last living coral reef of the North American continent. Acting as a breakwater, the southernmost barrier reef reduces wave action, which normally washes sand ashore in other regions.Along with a brilliant assortment of life forms, more than 600 varieties of edible fish can be found in the local waters including tarpon, amberjack, dolphin, king mackerel and many others. Fishing follows tourism as the second-most important industry of the island.Drinking water once consisted solely of what rainwater could be caught from the rooftops and stored in backyard cisterns. Today, fresh water for the island is obtained from an 18-inch pipeline that was originally built by the Navy in 1942, subsequently sold to the county, and a desalination plant that was reportedly the largest in the world when it was built in 1967.Along Front Street and Duval Street on the western part of the city, there are at least 50 stores that range from native “Conch,” Cuban and more conventional restaurants and bakeries, to English pubs and handicraft shops for gold and silver, candle-making and glassblowing, plus art galleries and antique shops. In Key West, one can buy fire-glazed ceramics, palm frond baskets and hats, homemade leather sandals and numerous other crafts practiced locally.Sunset is observed here with a deep reverence and a rare harmony that draws newcomers, tourists, locals, the finely dressed and the not-so-dressed all together at the same place and time. An hour or so before the sun drops magnificently below the Gulf horizon, people from all parts of the island gather at Mallory Square on Front Street to enjoy the impromptu collection of fire eaters, jugglers, Congo drum players, iguana displays, dancers and banjo pickers. Just as the sun melts the sky into a liquid flame and slips below the water’s far edge, all is quiet along the wall — as if this natural wonder will never take place or be seen again. The inevitable round of applause from all onlookers eventually breaks the magic spell, however, and everyone steps into motion again to see what else there is to discover on this island of contrasts, personality and tropical beauty.
The midfielder is set to become a free agent in the summer, with Jürgen Klopp’s side yet to offer him a new deal or show any intention of doing so.He has subsequently been linked with a move to reunite with former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers at Leicester City, but it seems there may be an opportunity to head to Italy.According to Calciomercato.it, AC Milan considered a move in the January transfer window and will ‘come back to thinking about him’ in the summer should he leave Liverpool.They are not the only Serie A side who could be interested, though, with the website stating that Lazio are another club to watch out.They are ‘always attentive’ to free transfers, and if they were to qualify for the Champions League, which is looking increasingly likely, it could ‘entice’ Lallana to try something new in Italy.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a City, Trade With Your Neighbors, Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndo聽多多 Hearmore.asia1969年前出生的香港居民現可免費試戴頂尖的歐洲助聽器聽多多 Hearmore.asiaUndoCNN with DBS BankThe New Role Banks Are PlayingCNN with DBS BankUndoSmart Tech TrendOver 50?

Source: Alex Pavlovic, NBC Sports, Bay AreaNeed to know: Madison Bumgarner is only 30 years old, which seems weird because he’s been around for parts of 11 seasons. And despite not being MADISON BUMGARNER the past few years because of various injuries and perhaps some natural regression, it’s quite possible he has more strong seasons left. His stats since 2017: 19-25, 3.57 ERA, 3.94 FIP with 413 strikeouts in 448.1 innings. Not bad, not great.MORE: Braves one of six teams that could use MadBum’s services Regardless of how hot the Hot Stove Season actually is this year — it’s been lukewarm, at best, the past few offseasons — Sporting News will have you covered with all the trade rumors and free-agent rumblings you can handle.Rumor: The Braves have made Madison Bumgarner a priority. Could this happen: Bumgarner makes sense for the Braves on the surface. He’s a proven front-line starter with a stellar postseason resume who could give a young Atlanta rotation a boost in multiple ways. The only issue would be the money and the years. It seems risky for the Braves to give MadBum a long-term deal, but it seems unlikely he’d accept a one- or two-year contract. Still, the two sides have had mutual interest in one another of late — Bumgarner is a North Carolina boy from right in the heart of Braves country, after all — so it’s the kind of signing that could easily happen.Potential domino effect: Getting Bumgarner would mean the Braves could officially move on from lefty Dallas Keuchel, who is already expected to be elsewhere next season. It would also, presumably, mean the Braves could focus the rest of their offseason on re-signing Josh Donaldson and/or adding more offense to the lineup. But Atlanta is said to potentially have interest in finding more than one established, successful starter to further balance out the youth in the rotation, which now looks to be without veteran innings-eater Julio Teheran.
