The MLS Cup is the annual championship match of Major League Soccer (MLS), the top-level association football (soccer) league for the United States and Canada. The match marks the conclusion of the MLS Cup Playoffs, a four-round knockout competition contested by the top six teams from each of the league's two conferences. The playoffs tournament is organized by the league at the end of the regular season in a format similar to other professional sports leagues in the United States and Canada, but unlike other soccer leagues. First contested in 1996, the MLS Cup was originally hosted by a predetermined neutral site, but is now hosted by the remaining team with the highest regular season standing. Atlanta United FC are the reigning cup-holders, having defeated the Portland Timbers in the 2018 final, which was watched by 73,019 spectators at Mercedes-Benz Stadium and set a competition attendance record. The Los Angeles Galaxy hold the record for most MLS Cup titles, having won five times in nine appearances. (Full list...)

Ermina Zaenah

Ermina Zaenah (born 11 November 1928) is an Indonesian actress and film producer active in the 1950s and 1960s. Born in Jambi, she completed her elementary school education before pursuing a career in entertainment, acting in stage plays. Zaenah led a musical group, the Los Suita Rama, and performed topeng dance. In 1951 Zaenah entered the film industry, performing in productions by Tan and Wong Bros and Golden Arrow, and Fred Young's Bintang Surabaya. She later migrated to Djamaluddin Malik's Persari, starring in several films for the company, including Supir Istimewa. Zaenah moved behind the camera in the 1960s, working as producer on four films, Kamar 13 ('Room 13'), Lagu dan Buku ('Song and Book'), Bakti ('Service'), and Ekspedisi Terakhir ('The Last Expedition'). She later returned to the theater for a short time when she toured Java with the group Sapta Daya. During her fourteen-year career in the entertainment industry, Zaenah acted in thirty films.

This picture is a three-quarter portrait of Zaenah from a postcard, taken around 1960 and printed on silk-finish paper.
