Will soon decide on removal of Pakistan cricketers photos from Eden Gardens: Ganguly

first_imgFormer India captain and Bengal cricket boss Sourav Ganguly Saturday said a decision would be taken soon on removal of Pakistan cricketers’ photographs, including that of PM Imran Khan, from the walls of Eden Gardens in the wake of the Pulwama terror attack.Ganguly’s comment came after BJP’s youth wing workers protested in front of the Eden Gardens, seeking removal of photographs of Imran and other Pakistani cricketers from the walls of the stadium.At least 64 activists of BJP youth wing were arrested for staging protest in front of the iconic Eden Gardens, a senior police officer said. They were later released on bail.”We are working on it. There will be a decision soon,” Ganguly told reporters when asked about the removal of photos.The state cricket associations of Vidarbha, Punjab and Rajasthan have already removed pictures of Pakistan cricketers in the aftermath of the terror attack which killed more than 40 CRPF personnel. Pakistan-based terror outfit, Jaish-e-Mohammad, has claims responsibility of the attack.Ganguly had earlier backed a complete boycott of cricketing ties with Pakistan, saying not playing the arch-rivals in the upcoming World Cup won’t have much of an impact on the Indian team’s campaign at the mega event in May-July.Days later, Sachin Tendulkar said he would ‘hate’ to give away two points to Pakistan by not playing in the World Cup and India should rather beat them again in the showpiece event to maintain their unbeaten record over the arch-rivals.”He wants two points against Pakistan, I want the World Cup so…he wants two points I want the World Cup. Whichever way you look at it,” Ganguly said, reacting to Tendulkar’s comments.advertisementEden Gardens has photographs of Imran, Wasim Akram and others kept in non-public areas of the stadium.Former and current cricketers have expressed varied opinions on severing cricketing ties with Pakistan.Many ministers of West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee’s cabinet, including former Bengal captain Lakshmi Ratna Shukla, hit out at BJP for trying to divert nation’s attention from terrorism.”We are more keen on removing terrorism from the world rather than pulling down photographs (of sportspersons). The BJP is trying to divert the attention from the current issue of terror attack. This is clear politics going on in the country,” Shukla said.State Municipal minister and city mayor Firhad Hakim when contacted said people should not confuse politics with sports and culture.Former cricketer and current Bengal coach Arun Lal said that the country was going through an emotional time and countrymen were venting out their feelings in different ways.”I can understand the feelings of my countrymen. I also share the same. This is a very emotional time. We have lost some of our brave brothers and obviously the country is hurt. But we also must understand that sports is not politics,” Lal said.Also Read | Virat Kohli on World Cup clash vs Pakistan: We will go by what government and BCCI decideAlso Read | BCCI will be shown security plans for World Cup, says ICC chairman Shashank ManoharAlso Read | To play or not to play: Ravi Shastri reacts to India vs Pakistan World Cup controversylast_img read more

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player The former Juventus boss continues to be linked with a move away from west London, with Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and AC Milan all reportedly interested in his services next season.But Valverde insists his team will not be taking the Blues lightly while leaping to the defence of Conte.”Antonio Conte is one of the best coaches in the world,” he told a press conferene. “He’s got a fantastic CV, not just here in England after winning the league with Chelsea, but with Juve and with his national team.”His teams are well drilled tactically. They know what to do in every moment and it’s a real challenge.”We’re planning to change our dynamic a little bit away from home. They’re physical, they defend well.

[Lionel] Messi, [Andres] Iniesta might still be there, but I think it’s good that there’s been a little rivalry, it gives us a little bit more expectation.”Lionel Messi BarcelonaSurprisingly, Barca star Messi has never scored in 655 minutes of action against Chelsea, although Valverde knows his team will offer plenty of support to the Argentina international as he seeks to end that unhappy sequence.”This tie is important for Leo, for me, for everyone. For Barcelona. It’ll be tough, but it’s important because we want to qualify,” he said.”Leo perhaps hasn’t had much luck against Chelsea before, but Tuesday is a different game.”last_img read more

French Monsters demolish Qatar

All the fans who have seen the match between France and Qatar 35:20 (16:13) have no doubt about the name of the handball world’s best national team. With this level of performance, the French best side is almost unbeatable, no matter who is on the other side of the court. And this was a replay of the World Championship 2015 Final.The second half of the guys led by Claude Onesta (or Didier Dinart) was the most cruel handball lecture until now at Olympic Games 2016 in Rio. Powerful defense, perfect counter-attack (9:0 for France in this segment), routine attacks, many players in TOP form, solid Omeyer.Qatar ended Croatian hopes in 33 minutes of the first match at Future Arena, as French team did it with best Asian squad in 37 minutes, when Karabatic and Sorhaindo put their team on +7 – 22:15. The Qatari resistance was strong in the first half, but without goalkeepers’ help from Saric and Stojanovic, and bombs of Markovic and Capote, in the second half, Rivera’s team collapsed.A real power of the „Experts“ could be seen in the second 30 minutes.Luc Abalo netted seven goals, Karabatić and Grebille added five each with 12 saves of Omeyer. On the other side, Bagaric, Capote and Markovic scored four each. ← Previous Story HC Odorhei win their own tournament “Odorhei Cup 2016” Next Story → ROUTINE WIN: Germans beat Poles! handballHandball Rio 2016Olympic handball read more

A ballooning success

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Despina Karatzias is a woman who has drawn on her childhood migrant experiences to build and develop her tourism business Global Ballooning, and her experiences are captured in her latest business book Adventures of a Balloon Girl. As a young girl who couldn’t speak a word of English, it was her curiosity that allowed her to understand the world around her. And it’s her avid curiosity that has allowed her to move forward with a sharp business nous. In the book, she shares with her readers the fundamental lessons learnt over the last decade managing a successful Victorian hot air balloon tourism business. Having worked her way up from a bookings role to business manager, Despina has spent the last ten years growing the small business that has now become a focal point of tourism in Victoria. The business – in operation for over 20 years – services the city of Melbourne and the Yarra Valley and the business now networks with trade missions, export industries – always growing the brand as well as Victoria. “It’s an organisation that I’ve grown with and assisted in growing the business, particularly with launching the balloons over Melbourne and they have become iconic and very unique to the city,” Despina tells Neos Kosmos. The book is not necessarily about the tourism industry itself, but targets all small businesses and small business professionals wanting to grow their organisation in a positive and sustainable fashion. The first step to doing this, she says, is for the small business to get connected to the ‘why’ – to understand why the business started in the first place. To get connected to the purpose of the business. “You hear that a lot with large organisations about understanding corporate values, your mission and vision,” she explains, “and it’s just as relevant for a small business but they are too busy working in it to take the time out and have a think about things. But you need to get back to the core reason you started it. How to find the right people to work alongside you to fulfil that vision and building the dream time. And the importance of having good mentors – getting to know people who have already achieved what you are striving for.”Despina has been instrumental in the development of new marketing strategies, establishing strong agent based relationships, implementing carbon offset initiatives, a positive working culture, putting into effect key performance indicators to track growth in her team and driving sales.

Yes Shah Rukh Khans money is in it Taapsee Pannus savage reaction

first_imgEarlier, the actress had raised an objection when a publication had credited only Amitabh Bachchan for Badla’s success in the headline of an article. Sharing the same article, Taapsee had tweeted, “I think girls in these films have equally worked hard, but maybe you did not have the time to mention it.”The tweet was shared by Kriti Sanon with a hashtag #IFeelYouGirl, suggesting that even she was unhappy about Kartik Aaryan getting all the credit for the success of Luka Chuppi while she had an equally important role.Meanwhile, Taapsee has been busy shooting for her next film Saand Ki Aankh, which appears to be a satirical comedy. In an interview, the actress had said that she plays one of her most difficult roles to date in this film. Taapsee Pannu in BadlaYouTube ScreenshotTaapsee Pannu is known for being straight forward in her approach as she hardly bothers to mince her words. She showed a glimpse of the same when a person on Twitter said that some girls went to watch Badla only because Shah Rukh Khan is associated with it.The movie Badla features Taapsee and Amitabh Bachchan in key roles. Although Shah Rukh has no role in it, he is the producer of the film. Hence, he was actively promoting the movie.A Twitter user said that some girls among the audience in a theatre turned up to watch Badla only because they thought it has some connection with SRK. “The next seats girls only came to saw the movie because they’re sure ke is mein shahrukh ka kuch to hai [sic],” the Twitter user wrote.Soon, Taapsee responded to the tweet writing, “Haan paisa toh hai na shahrukh ka. (Yes, at least Shah Rukh’s money is involved in it)”. Taapsee’s response won the hearts of her fans who cannot stop praising her “savage” reply.last_img read more

Want to Stop Climate Change Educate Girls and Give Them Birth

first_imgAlthough the education of girls in a small number of countries is at, or approaching, parity with boys, for most of the planet, this remains distressingly elusive. Poverty, along with community traditions, tends to hold back girls as boys are prioritized.Then there’s family planning, something that’s indivisible from the education of girls. The planet is overpopulated, and the demands of its citizens greatly exceed the natural resources provided by our environment.Contraception and prenatal care is denied to women across the world, from those in the United States, to communities in low-income nations. It’s either not available, not affordable, or social and/or religious motives ensure that it’s banned or heavily restricted. As a consequence, the world’s population will rise rapidly, consume ever more resources, and power its ambitions using fossil fuels. Carbon dioxide will continue to accumulate in the atmosphere.The education of girls and family planning can be considered as a single issue involving the empowerment of women in communities across the world. Drawdown calculated that, by taking steps toward universal education and investing in family planning in developing nations, the world could nix 120 billion tons of emissions by 2050. That’s roughly 10 years’ worth of China’s annual emissions as of 2014, and it’s all because the world’s population won’t rise quite so rapidly.It’s farcical that this isn’t forming a major part of the debate over climate change mitigation. It’s not entirely clear why this is the case, but I’d suspect that regressive societal attitudes, along with the tendency of commentators to focus on the battle between different energy sectors, play suppressive roles in this regard. Climate change is a ubiquitous hydra, a many-headed beast that affects everyone and everything in some form. Solutions to climate change range from the effective and the practical to the potentially catastrophically dangerous—but, in this somewhat heated debate, a potent weapon in our arsenal is falling by the wayside: the empowerment of women.Last year a coalition of scientists, economists, policymakers, researchers, and business people published Project Drawdown, a compendium of ways to prevent carbon dioxide from escaping skywards. Drawing from a plethora of peer-reviewed research, the document ranks 80 practical, mitigating measures—along with 20 near-future concepts—that could push back the oncoming storm.Ranked in order of carbon emissions locked down by 2050, the usual suspects made the list. A moderate expansion of solar farms (number 8), onshore wind turbines (number 2), and nuclear power (number 20) would all save tens of billions of tons of equivalent carbon dioxide emissions. Increasing the number of people on plant-rich diets (number 4) and using electric vehicles (number 26) are effective carbon-cutting measures often proposed by climate hawks, and rightly so. The top spot went to managing refrigerants like HFCs, which are incredibly effective at trapping heat within our atmosphere.But two lesser-known solutions also made this most practical of lists: the education of girls (number 6) and family planning (number 7). This is a stunning revelation, one that couldn’t be more pertinent, and yet, for the most part, discussions of mitigation and de-carbonization focus heavily on other matters, from the perceived perils and bona fide benefits of nuclear power, to just how quickly solar power is proliferating.The link between the education of girls and a smaller carbon footprint isn’t as intuitively obvious as, say, phasing out fossil fuels. But dig a little deeper, and the evidence is overwhelming. It’s clear that getting more girls into school, and giving them a quality education, has a series of profound, cascading effects: reduced incidence of disease, higher life expectancies, more economic prosperity, fewer forced marriages, and fewer children. Better educational access and attainment not only equips women with the skills to deal with the antagonizing effects of climate change, but it gives them influence over how their communities militate against it. It’s a grim assessment of civilization that, in 2018, humans are still grappling with gender equality. The world would clearly benefit if women were on par with men in every sector of society. We shouldn’t need any more convincing, but the fact that the social ascension of women would deal a severe blow to anthropogenic warming should be shouted from the rooftops.Incidentally, the solutions in Drawdown also had associated economic benefits or costs associated with them. If 10 percent of the world’s electricity was generated using solar farms, then it’d save $5 trillion by 2050, for example. No such value could be put to educating girls and family planning—two human rights with incalculable benefits.WIRED Opinion publishes pieces written by outside contributors and represents a wide range of viewpoints. Read more opinions here.Our Warming ClimateThe WIRED Guide to Climate ChangeIs Cape Town thirsty enough to drink seawater?How engineering earth’s climate could imperil lifecenter_img Project Drawdown isn’t the only group that has recently tied population growth to climate change. A study published last summer also found that having just one fewer child is a far more effective way for individuals in the developed world to shrink their carbon footprint than, say, recycling or eating less meat. For women in wealthy countries, these decisions are often freely made, and fertility rates in those countries are already fairly low. In low-income countries, such individual agency—not to mention contraception—is frequently absent, and fertility rates remain high.Just as policymakers, climate advocates, and science communicators should pay attention to Drawdown’s findings, individuals should also do what they can to make sure such a solution comes to pass. Non-government organizations, like Hand In Hand International, Girls Not Brides, and the Malala Fund aren’t just uplifting women, but they’re helping to save the planet too, and they deserve support.last_img read more

When local doctors assured Balzer’s wife that her headaches were nothing to worry about, Balzer took matters into his own hands, using his wife’s magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) images to construct a true reflection of her brain — and the 3-centimeter tumor growing behind her left eye.Printing an accurate 3-D depiction of his wife’s skull, Balzer sent the model to a physician who ultimately agreed to do a new type of surgery, one necessitating a small incision above her left eye instead of sawing open her cranium and physically moving her brain. As a result, her sight was saved.Using 3-D printing to help plan procedures and to explain diagnoses to patients “is going to become the new normal,” says Michael Patton, M.D., CEO of the Medical Innovation Lab, based in Austin, TX.“My big message now is that this stuff is out there, and a lot of it is free,” says a relieved Balzer, whose wife is now healthy and well. “The first thing is getting the word out that your hands aren’t tied.

first_imgFormer FIFA Vice President Jeffrey Webb has been extradited to the United States following his arrest in Switzerland on racketeering and bribery charges filed by American prosecutors.The Swiss Federal Office of Justice said Thursday the man was extradited a day earlier after 50 days of detention.“He was handed over to a three-man U.S. police escort in Zurich who accompanied him on the flight to New York,” the ministry said in a statement. Comments   Share   Extradition hearings are being held by Zurich cantonal police in a process expected to finish by early September, Swiss justice office spokesman Raphael Frei told the Associated Press on Thursday. Appeals to Switzerland’s federal criminal court and supreme court can extend the cases by several months.Webb and Figueredo were named in the indictment among several men who have already shared in bribe payments of at least $40 million linked to broadcast rights for four editions of the Copa America tournament.Blazer admitted sharing in a $10 million bribe scheme with Warner and a third FIFA voter to support South Africa’s successful bid for the 2010 World Cup. South African officials asked FIFA to transfer the money through the governing body’s accounts.U.S. authorities have said more indictments could follow, and FIFA President Sepp Blatter is a target of the widening case.Under pressure from the investigation and a separate Swiss federal probe of money laundering linked to FIFA’s award of the 2018 and 2022 World Cups, Blatter announced on June 2 that he intends to leave office.Blatter, who denies wrongdoing, has not attended FIFA business in nations that have extradition treaties with the U.S. Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall Parents, stop beating yourself up 4 must play golf courses in Arizona Mesa family survives lightning strike to home New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Sponsored Stories Another of the arrested was Aaron Davison, president of the marketing company Traffic Sports USA, who is subject to home detention at his residence in Florida. A day ahead of a status conference in his case in federal court in Brooklyn, prosecutors sent a letter to U.S. District Judge Raymond J. Dearie informing him that Davidson has been involved in plea negotiations.The government said it anticipates “audio recordings in multiple languages” and “records produced to the United States by foreign countries pursuant to mutual legal assistance requests” will be part of discovery in Davidson’s case. Prosecutors also said they are coordinating with FIFA’s counsel to notify all 209 national federations of the proceedings.All seven men were arrested on May 27 in dawn raids on a luxury hotel in Zurich by Swiss federal police at the request of American prosecutors.They include FIFA vice president Eugenio Figueredo of Uruguay, who like Webb was suspended from soccer activity by FIFA’s ethics committee.The others are Jose Maria Marin, who led Brazil’s 2014 World Cup local organizing committee; Eduardo Li, an elected member of FIFA’s executive committee and president of Costa Rica’s soccer federation; FIFA staffer Julio Rocha, a development officer from Nicaragua; Venezuela federation president Rafael Esquivel; and Costas Takkas, a Briton who works for Webb. On Monday, he will chair an executive committee meeting in Zurich that is likely to decide on an election date for FIFA’s member federations to replace him as president.Blatter is expected to travel to Russia next week to oversee the 2018 World Cup qualifying draw on July 25 in St. Petersburg.___Dunbar reported from Geneva.

Top Stories Two people familiar with the case identified the defendant as Webb and confirmed he has been brought to the United States. The people, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case, declined to disclose his exact location.Webb, who is from the Cayman Islands, was president of the CONCACAF, soccer’s governing body for North and Central America and the Caribbean, and a FIFA vice president at the time of his arrest.A total of 14 men — nine soccer officials and five marketing executives — were indicted by the U.S. Justice Department in May, including former FIFA vice president Jack Warner, who is resisting extradition from Trinidad and Tobago. Webb promised reform when he was elected in 2012 to succeed Warner as president of CONCACAF.A further four, including former FIFA executive committee member Chuck Blazer of the United States and two sons of Warner, had their guilty pleas unsealed in May.They are alleged to have taken part in a racketeering conspiracy paying bribes of more than $150 million over a 24-year period. The payments were tied to the award of broadcast and hosting rights for the World Cup, continental championships in North and South America, and regional club tournaments. 5 treatments for adult scoliosislast_img read more
