McCartney, Rowling promoted in the queen's Birthday Honors

Dame Julie Walters: from TV comedy to award-winning stage and screen roles

A HOST of people from across the Bradford district have been included in the latest Queen's Birthday Honours list, which celebrates its centenary this year.

All team members received MBEs for their gold medals in the New Year's honours list - now their coach, the most successful in the history of modern British hockey, has been rightly honoured. In typical down-to-earth style, Sheeran pronounced himself "chuffed" with the honour on social media.

On the business side of things, Global founder and executive president Ashley Tabor picked up an OBE for services to media.

"But it's a huge honour, it's something I'll treasure for the rest of my life. This one is for everyone at Global".

The 32-year-old from Ballymena said he "totally honoured" to be recognised for services to football.

Mexico snatch draw with Portugal in Confederations Cup
Was it the Mexican players, the referees, the video assistants or maybe the press? But the assistant did not flag for the offense. Ronaldo smacked a long-range shot onto the bar and Nani picked up the rebound to volley home.

Oscar-winning actress Olivia de Havilland, who turns 101 next month, will also become a dame.

George Arthur Fromow will receive an MBE for services to Haematology.

The list also includes famous names, like pop star Ed Sheeran, and Judy Murray, mother of tennis star Andy Murray.

Police Sergeant Gwyneth Buchanan, who was one of the first officers to specialise in supporting victims of domestic abuse, received an MBE for services to policing and the community.

Pam has also recently broken an arm, which means she will have to miss this year's Europeans, but she does have a trip to Buckingham Palace to look forward to.

Ronaldo wants to leave Real?
Ronaldo has frequently verbally committed himself to Real, and he's made no secret of his love for living in the Spanish capital. The 32-year-old wants to leave Real and has already informed his decision to his current employers.

Pamela Berry was also given a British Empire Medal for services to the community in Delph.

Fundraiser Doreen Golding, Pearly Queen of the Old Kent Road, is given a BEM for services to charity and the Pearly Kings and Queens Society.

Interestingly, this list was on of the most diverse thus far with half of this year's honourees being 10%, and 10% from black or minority ethnic backgrounds.

Britain's last surviving Dambuster, who had been awarded an MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours, said he is very grateful to the thousands of people who signed a petition calling for his wartime service to be recognised.

Errors pave the way for LSU
Busby's home run was one of the longest in TD Ameritrade Park history, clearing the '408′ sign at the top of the centerfield wall. That's simply astonishing considering the Seminoles had the lead off runner on base six of the seven innings Lange started.
