La ciudad es uno de los puntos claves de la ofensiva militar lanzada por el presidente ucraniano, Petró Poroshenko, que ha ordenado al ejército izar la bandera nacional ucraniana en el ayuntamiento.

VIDEO: Mick Jagger Pokes Fun At Himself in Monty Python Video

Rocker Mick Jagger certainly has a sense of humor! In a new promotional video for Monty Python’s 10 shows at London’s O2 arena, the 70-year-old Rolling Stones frontman poked some fun at his own band while talking about the comedy group’s reunion, calling Monty Python “a bunch of wrinkly old men.” “Monty Python? Are they still going?” Jagger asks in the video. “Who wants to see that again? It was funny in the Sixties.” He added, “Wow. They must be coining it in.

VIDEO: Cameron, decidido a reformar la UE

El primer ministro británico, David Cameron, quiere reformar la Unión Europea, y para ello está dispuesto a trabajar con el mismísimo Jean Claude-Juncker, su bestia negra, cuya designación como presidente de la Comisión europea no pudo impedir en la cumbre del viernes pasado en Bruselas. En una acalorada sesión parlamentaria, Cameron también ha prometido referéndum sobre Europa en 2017. “En las elecciones europeas, la gente pedía a gritos un cambio. Ahora se sienten frustrados. Gran Bretaña será portavoz de esas personas. Siempre defenderemos nuestros principios, nuestros intereses nacionales y lucharemos por todos los medios para reformar la UE en los próximos años. Y a finales de 2017, no seré yo, ni este parlamento ni Bruselas quien decida nuestro futuro en la Unión Europea. Será el pueblo británico”, aseguró. Para el líder de la oposición laborista, Ed Miliband, Cameron sufrió una “absoluta humillación” el viernes en Bruselas, al quedarse solo en su batalla contra Juncker. Un sondeo realizado indica que el 47 por ciento de los británicos apuesta ahora por el BREXIT, una palabra recién acuñada, contracción de “British” y “Exit”, o la salida del Reino Unido de la Unión Europea.

VIDEO: Pulled Pork Grilled Cheese: Need We Say More?

Our hearts and our stomachs felt empty today when we learned that Ford’s Filling Station in Culver City, CA, had closed its doors. What better way to pay tribute to this beloved gastropub than with its insanely delicious recipe for a pulled pork grilled cheese? Watch as chef Ben Ford (son of Harrison Ford) teaches you how to make this Cuban-inspired sandwich that we hope makes an appearance on all of his future menus. Until Ford’s new spot opens, you can still sample his creative grub via his new cookbook, Taming the Feast, and by re-creating this sandwich at home. From Ben Ford, Ford’s Filling Station Pulled Pork Grilled Cheese Ingredients2 jalapeño chilies, roasted 2 fresno chilies, roasted 1 red pepper, roasted 1 teaspoon amber honey 1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped 2 ounces mayonnaise 1 ounce whole grain mustard 5 ounces pulled pork 1/2 ounce chicken stock 2 slices brioche bread 1 ounce gouda, sliced Directions To Make the Three-Pepper Relish: Roast chilies over an open flame until the skin is blistered and charred on all sides. Remove from flame, and place in a small bowl. Cover with plastic wrap, and allow to sit for 15 minutes. Reserve a tablespoon of the roasted pepper juice. Remove the chilies, peel them, and remove the seeds and stem. Finely dice the chilies. Combine the reserved roasted pepper juice with the honey, and reduce by half until it is a syrupy consistency. Add peppers and cilantro to the syrup, and set aside. To Make the Whole Grain Mustard-Mayo: Combine the mayonnaise with the whole grain mustard in a bowl. To Assemble: Warm the pulled pork in a sauté pan with the chicken stock. Toast the brioche bread slices on one side. This will be the inside face of the sandwich. Spread mustard-mayo on the inside of one bread slice, and spread three-pepper relish on the inside of the other. Top the relish with a slice of gouda cheese, followed by the warm pulled pork and another slice of gouda. Top with the mustard-mayo slice. Place sandwich on a griddle, and lightly press the sandwich down. Flip when you have achieved a brown, toasted look on each side and the cheese has melted. Serve immediately.
