Bianchi wants Napoli to overcome victim mentality

first_imgNapoli legend Ottavio Bianchi has urged his former side to get rid of the “victim mentality” if they want to make exploits in the modern game.Bianchi who won the Scudetto with Napoli believes It’s the only area where they haven’t grown exponentially ahead of tonight’s game with Milan.“In some ways, the only area where Napoli haven’t grown exponentially over the years is in their victim mentality. That’s just an extra chance given to the opposition. He disclosed to Football Italia.“In my days, Napoli would fight to avoid relegation one year and finish mid-table the other. At that time, you knew you were representing a great city, but now you are representing a big club too.“Now the club has been at the top for years, a side with a precise identity and Carlo Ancelotti can now ‘make the most’ of Maurizio Sarri’s work, adding his own ideas to build on the existing project.Do not miss out on the Serie A action tonight!⚽️📢AC Milan takes on Napoli by 7:30 pm.Cristiano Ronaldo, JuventusSerie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….Searching for high odds?🤔Bet on our https://t.co/OUHKpAWnGj Special Pick👇🏽 pic.twitter.com/ZTABnFL8Bb— BLACKBET.NG (@BlackbetNG) January 26, 2019“Ancelotti has done really well to not completely tear it down and start again. He is getting the best out of his players with squad rotation, not going overboard. They say the best Coach is the one that does the least damage.”Nonetheless, Juventus are still streaking out in front on their way to a potential eighth consecutive Scudetto.“Juve are putting together results that can never be repeated, but it’s also because all their challengers have fallen at more or less the same time. If Inter, Milan and Roma return to playing at a certain level, it’ll be easier also for Napoli to challenge Juve.”last_img read more

Indian EC bans release of Modi biopic

first_imgIn this file photo taken on 7 January 2019, Indian actor Suresh Oberoi (L), producer Sandip S Singh (2L), Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis (C), actor Vivek Oberoi (2R) and director Umang Kumar pose with posters of the upcoming Bollywood film `PM Narendra Modi` – a biopic on Indian prime minister Narendra Modi, during an event to launch the poster of the film in Mumbai. Photo: AFPIndia banned Wednesday the release of a biopic about prime minister Narendra Modi during the country’s marathon elections after complaints that the flattering portrayal would give the ruling party an unfair advantage.Modi’s right wing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is seeking a second term, defending a landslide win over the opposition Congress party in 2014. The result is predicted to be close however.In a win for the opposition, India’s election commission barred the cinematic release of the film until voting concludes on 19 May.Under Indian election rules, the publication of any content deemed as campaign material — including advertisements, films and even social media — requires the election commission’s prior approval.The commission — which organises the world’s biggest democratic poll with 900 million eligible voters choosing 543 MPs — said the film “has the potential to disturb the level playing field during the elections”.Congress insisted it was propaganda and resisted the timing of its release, even taking its fight to the country’s highest court.The movie tells the story of the Hindu nationalist leader’s ascent to power from his days selling tea at a train station.The film had been granted a censors’ certificate and was planned to release Thursday as the first wave of voters went to the ballot box.The producers of two TV series were also given warning notices by the election commission for promoting Modi’s pet schemes through their shows, The Press Trust of India reported.The ruling came as security was placed on high alert across India and tens of thousands of troops were deployed to a hotspot where a political convoy was attacked on the eve of the election.Seats in 20 states will be decided on Thursday — the first of seven days of voting spread over six weeks.Election violenceSecurity was bolstered in troubled Chhattisgarh state, which goes to the polls Thursday after a deadly ambush on an election convoy left five people dead.Some 80,000 troops, police and paramilitaries will be deployed to the central state where Maoist rebel groups detonated a bomb and fired on the convoy, state police chief DM Awasthi said.The election commission insisted the attack that left a state lawmaker campaigning for Modi and his bodyguards dead would not change its schedule.Maoist rebels are behind many of the long-simmering insurgencies in at least nine Indian states.Chhattisgarh is among sensitive states where polling is staggered over several weeks so security and administrative staff can be moved around.The killing of a local leader of a Hindu nationalist group in Jammu and Kashmir on Tuesday reinforced fears of trouble during voting. Parts of Kashmir will also vote on Thursday.Gunmen burst into a Jammu hospital and shot dead the regional leader of the right wing Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, which is closely linked to Modi’s party.Tensions also simmered in the eastern state of Odisha where two landmines were recovered by patrols, and in nearby Bihar where two roadside bombs were detonated.Kashmir hit the headlines ahead of the election after 40 paramilitaries were killed in a suicide attack in February.India blamed the attack on a Pakistan-based group and launched a cross-border air raid, which sparked a retaliatory strike by Pakistan that briefly brought the rivals close to a new war.Modi has used India’s action against Pakistan to bolster his strongman image and divert attention from criticism over a lack of jobs across the country and a farmers’ debt crisis.At a rally on Tuesday, Modi urged first-time voters to dedicate their ballot to the military who staged the air strike inside Pakistan.Congress said the speech breached an EC order that political parties should not use the armed forces for propaganda.Rahul Gandhi, the Congress leader challenging Modi, filed his nomination papers Wednesday following a roadshow in his home constituency of Amethi in Uttar Pradesh state.Various opinion polls have indicated an alliance led by Modi’s BJP will win up to 273 of the 543 parliament seats at stake, just one more than required for a majority.last_img

Chinese team entangles eight photons breaking record

first_imgIn a game of one-upmanship, a Chinese team of physicists has figured out how to entangle eight photons simultaneously and to observe them in action; the previous record was six. In a paper published in arXiv, the team from the University of Science and Technology of China in Hefei, describe how they were able to convert a single photon into two entangled photons, using a nonlinear crystal, and then how they repeated that process with one of the paired photons produced, while holding the other in place, producing another pair, and then did it repeatedly until they had eight photons all entangled together, all held in place and all observable for a period of time. Quantum electronics: Two photons and chips © 2010 PhysOrg.com First predicted by Einstein, in conjunction with two other physicists, Boris Podolsky and Nathan Rosen, entanglement (from the German word Verschränkungis) is where particles exist in a relationship so closely related, that anything that happens to one, somehow automatically happens to the other, like identical twins both feeling a pin-prick on their finger tips, whether in the same room, or miles apart.In the new experiment, the researchers fired a photon from a high energy laser through a nonlinear crystal, causing it to become a pair of weaker entangled photons. They then kept one of the pair aside while the other was sent through another nonlinear crystal, producing another pair of entangled photons that were also still entangled with the original pair. They then held back one of the new pair while sending its twin through another nonlinear crystal, forming yet another pair of entangled photons that was also entangled with all the other entangled photons, and then repeated the procedure until they had a total of eight photons, all of which were entangled together.After several years of research, physicists have learned a lot about creating entangled particles; what they haven’t been able to do is pin them down. Entangled particles, such as the photons produced in the Chinese experiment don’t generally last long, which makes this experiment all the more exciting because it means the researchers were able to coax the entangled photons into hanging around long enough to be observed while the new entangled particles were coming into existence.Many physicists have likened the whole process to the infamous thought experiment so named, Schrödinger’s cat, due to the letter written by physicist Erwin Schrödinger to Einstein where he described a cat hidden in a box with a radioactive substance that may or may not have decayed to the point of discharging a poisonous substance that when released would kill the cat, which leads to the mind state of a cat existing that is simultaneously both dead and alive.The ultimate goal in studying entangled particles is to figure out how they operate and then how to put them to use in such devices as quantum computers.
