Arthur Lespinasse Bourvil Anatole David Niven Colonel Carol Matthews Eli WallachPizza shop owner Leonardo Buonsante jokes that he owes his intensive care unit doctor a few of his "famous" grandma pies — a longtime tradition of his Italian family. When he's serious, he says he owes her his life after helping him overcome a tough bout with coronavirus.
Weak and disillusioned at the time, he said he barely remembers calling for an ambulance on May 7 when he first started thinking he might have the virus. After doctors initially controlled his symptoms, Buonsante suffered severe complications and was placed on a ventilator for three days in the intensive care unit. But the Plains Twp. I was crying leaving because all the nurses were clapping and screaming and saying how happy they were that I was alive," Buonsante said, recalling his discharge.
Buonsante puts Dr. Lakshmi Saladi at the top of the list of all the health care professionals to whom he's indebted. During the most critical points of his hospitalization, she made the calls and treatment plans that enabled Buonsante to survive. Buonsante and Saladi reconnected for the first time during a group telephone call with a reporter for this story, along with his sister, Margaret, who was his leading advocate during his illness, even if she couldn't be with him in person because of social distancing rules.
Saladi, you saved my life," Buonsante said. Saladi recalled that's the first thing Buonsante told her after he was taken off the ventilator.
It feels good hearing that from a patient," Saladi said. It's really inspiring to hear these stories from a survivor. He felt sick and lethargic at first, but didn't have any respiratory issues or coughs, so family assumed it wasn't the coronavirus. But the condition continued to the point he got tested on May 5. By May 7, even before the results were in, he was so "out of it" and bedridden for several days that an employee that hadn't heard from him in days demanded he call an ambulance, or she would, Buonsante's sister, Margaret Belmondo said.
Following a visit to the emergency room, Buonsante was placed in the progressive care unit, one step down from intensive care. Hospital workers used a high-flow oxygen mask on him. He started experiencing an irregular heartbeat. While taking blood thinners, Buonsante participated in a clinical trial using a convalescent plasma treatment.
That was the hard part. No family could be by Buonsante's side. Buonsante's nurses, who plastered his room window with signs that read "faith" and "hope," threw him a birthday party on May 10 when it looked liked his bout with coronavirus would be mild.
Another day came and went, and his prognosis looked good. Then, Belmondo got a call at a. Buonsante was then transferred to the intensive care unit and that's where he first met the doctor who he says saved his life. Saladi, because I didn't have any family there," Buonsante said during the recent phone call.Born in Italy, he was raised in Paris by his Italian mother. After a first career as a professional wrestler was ended by injury, he was offered a part as a gang boss in the Jacques Becker film Touchez pas au grisbi and rapidly became one of France's favourite film actors, playing opposite many other great stars such as BourvilJean GabinAlain DelonClaude RichBernard BlierJacques BrelMichel SerraultJean-Paul Belmondoand working with other leading directors such as Louis MalleClaude SautetClaude Millerand the great script writer Michel Audiard.
Having a daughter born handicapped, he and his wife founded a charity Perce-Neige Snowdrop which aids disabled children and their parents. Though he never renounced his Italian citizenship, he was voted 23rd in a poll for the greatest Frenchmen. Born in ParmaEmilia-RomagnaItaly to Giovanni Ventura and Luisa Borrini, who moved to France soon thereafter, Lino dropped out of school at the age of eight and later took on a variety of jobs.
At one point Ventura was pursuing a prizefighting and professional wrestling career but had to end it because of an injury. Inby chance, one of his friends mentioned him to Jacques Becker who was looking for an Italian actor to play opposite Jean Gabin in a gangster movie called Touchez pas au grisbi Becker offered him on the spot the role of Angelo, which Ventura refused at first but then accepted. He had such a presence in the film that the whole profession took notice.
The film was a big success. Ventura started to build up an acting career in similar hard-boiled gangster films, often playing beside his friend Jean Gabinincluding his second film, Razzia sur la chnouf Although he remained an Italian citizen throughout his life and long used to seeing himself dubbed into Italian from the original French release, he only made a handful of films in his native language, among them The Last Judgement Il giudizio universale, Illustrious Corpses Cadaveri eccellentiand Cento Giorni a Palermo Ventura remained active until the year before his death from a heart attack in at the age of Having a disabled daughter himself, he created a charitable foundation, Perce-Neige Snowdrop inwhich supports disabled people.
Throughout his career, he was one of the most popular actors of French cinema. He spoke French without any accent excepting a Parisian one at the beginning of his career and spoke Italian with a slight French accent, having arrived in France at the age of seven. Forcibly conscripted into the Italian army during the Second World War, he deserted.
But, although his wife and four children were French, he never wanted to give up Italian citizenship, out of respect for his parents. Somewhat paradoxically, Ventura attributed his great success to his limited range as an actor; and often said "If I cannot believe in a character, or if something does not ring true, I cannot act it.
In a interview he said that the previous year "I began to realize how incredibly lucky I had been since the age of 9, how much I had been loved by so many people. When I act, I am doing what I love, and I am paid for it. So I put myself in the service of the film, never the film in service to me. He said, "The story is everything. My good friend Jean Gabin told me 25 years ago there are three important things in movies: the story, the story and the story.
What I can do is myself. And I like best not to talk at all I study the script, and then try to become the character. That is very mysterious, how that happens.

Indeed, quite the opposite is true. Much has been made in the gambling press of the slowing rate of NGR growth. If bet365 was listed we would have more colour on the geographic split of the current earnings and perhaps an idea of the differing growth rates. The splits count because of how they would affect the valuation of the business.
Slightly further down, according to analysis from earlier in the year by Morgan Stanley, is Unibet at around 20 times its 2016 earnings. Then comes the Ladbrokes Coral merged entity at around 15 times, alongside Playtech, Betsson, 888 and Rank.
Yet, an argument could be made for valuing bet365 at much higher than 15 times EBITDA. It is, after all, purely internet, unencumbered by retail and market leader in most of the markets in participates in. On such a reading, it might be thought that a valuation multiple closer to Unibet or even Paddy Power Betfair might be appropriate. But that is to reckon without the complications of how the financial markets treat regulated and unregulated markets in terms of valuation.
GVC is the most high-profile example of a company where a relatively even mix of the two means the market values the company at a lesser multiple than the rest of the market. Totally Gaming says: This is all speculative given that bet365 is unlikely to be hitting the public listed sector any time soon.
