Lucas I was right to ditch Neymar PSG for Tottenham

first_imgFormer PSG winger Lucas Moura says he took the right decision in leaving Neymar behind at Paris Saint-Germain as he hopes to “make history” with Tottenham.The winger saw his game time at PSG reduce after Neymar’s arrival last season, which made him opt for Spurs in a £25 million ($32.8m) in January.Neymar is like my brother,’ he told the Mail on Sunday. “I love him and we have a very good close relationship. It was a little bit sad to leave him and Paris because I like the life there. But I had been there for five years and it was time to have a new challenge.“I wanted to play in another championship and coming here was a big opportunity for me to play in the best league in the world.PSG, Neymar, Ligue 1PSG ultras sent a warning letter to Neymar Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Brazilian superstar Neymar might play today his first game of the season for Paris Saint-Germain and the team’s ultras have warned him.“Tottenham are a big club. They are probably bigger in structure than PSG. I am impressed by this and I was happy to come here.“Now I am ready to give my best because I will do the whole pre-season with the team. That is important because here is very different – the Premier League is very hard – so I will be more ready to show my talent.”Lucas is enjoying his shine as he scored twice in Spurs’ International Champions Cup opener against Roma before impressing again against Barcelona and says he has a good relationship with Spurs boss.“The relationship with him is very good. I believe we can have a big season, win a trophy,” he added.“That’s why I am here, to win a trophy because I believe in the team, the project. We have the capacity to make history here.”last_img read more

Urban Renewal Campers Taught Academics and More

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppBahamas, July 31, 2017 – Nassau – Fundamental subjects of Math and English were drilled into the 100-plus children enrolled in the Nassau Village Urban Renewal Summer Camp but, equally important, the children were exposed to topics like bullying, hygiene, inappropriate touch, gang violence and conflict resolution through pep talks during the three-week program.“I’ve seen their mannerisms change over the course of the 3 weeks,” said Latisha Rolle, one of 13 facilitators at the camp.“Camp normally gives families temporary relief from chaotic situations at home.  Children act according to their culture at home. When they go home, even though Mummy may be loud, we help them to understand there is a way to deal with that. We teach them to deal with conflict. As a child, you have an obligation to honor your father and mother and that is one of the scriptures we teach them.“Every day they also say a pledge and 2 Bible scriptures… “Honor thy father and mother… and I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.“They know these things by heart,” she said.Arnette Lunn, a camp facilitator who is also studying to become a Mediator, imparted some of her skills to the children. She explained that it is one thing to recite the pledge, but it’s another thing to know what it means. “We explain what the pledge means; respect for peers, elders, teachers, the community and anyone you may encounter. We also recite the Golden Rule every day … Do unto others as you would have them do to you. Treat people how you want to be treated.”The campers, ages 5-15, who are residents of Nassau Village, Pinewood and the surrounding area, also engaged in basketball and volleyball games for 20 minutes each day along with interpretive dance and sign language classes.Ms. Lunn emphasized that the children were “happy” to be at the camp and were making new friends in a school setting but in a “controlled” environment.The Ministry of Social Services and Urban Development is hosting the “free” camp which is being held at Sadie Curtis Primary School. Each day the children receive breakfast and lunch, fruits and drinks.The camp will officially closed with a special ceremony at Loyola Hall, Gladstone Road, at the end of July.Press Release: BISStory by: Kathryn Campbell Photo Captions: Header Photo:  Camp facilitator Latisha Rolle assists campers with preparations for the closing exhibition.Insert photo: Arnette Lunn, Urban Renewal Camp facilitator, views a Junkanoo piece to be displayed at the camp’s closing exhibition.(BIS Photo/Patrick Hanna)center_img Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more

Two of three victims of deadly Encinitas cliff collapse identified

first_img August 3, 2019 Posted: August 3, 2019 KUSI Newsroom ENCINITAS (KUSI) – Two of the three victims in Friday’s deadly cliff collapse in the Leucadia neighborhood of Encinitas were identified today as a mother and daughter.The women were identified as Julie Davis, 65, and Anne Clave, 35, according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office. The identity of the third victim, who died at the scene, has not been released pending notification of relatives.Clave, from Encinitas, died at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla on Friday. Davis died at Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas, also on Friday.The bluff failure happened shortly before 3 p.m. Friday just north of a lifeguard station, Encinitas fire and lifeguard officials said at a news conference Saturday morning.Officials reopened Grandview Surf Beach before noon Saturday with signs posted to the north and south of the cliff collapse asking the public to keep out of the “active area,” Lifeguard Capt. Larry Giles said.City officials recommended that “given the apparent natural bluff instability, beachgoers should avoid areas near or under the bluffs and keep a recommended safe distance of 25 to 40 feet.”Four search dogs went through the site of the collapse late Friday and officials determined that no more people had been found, Encinitas Fire Deputy Chief Robert Ford said.Two people walked away uninjured after the collapse, Giles said.A lifeguard was in the tower next to the site of the cliff collapse and immediately began to rescue victims. Some good Samaritans helped the lifeguard in the rescue effort, Giles said. The lifeguard tower has since been moved away from the part of the cliff that collapsed.Experts in geology will continue assessing the coastline for any potential collapse threats. Geotech soil engineers said Friday’s failure was an isolated incident, Giles said, and unrelated to the recent earthquakes in Southern California. The failure isn’t affecting structures at the top of the cliffs, he said.“Our coastline is a beautiful area, but the coastline is eroding,” Giles said.

Google Doodle pays tribute to Japanese inventor Seiichi Miyake

first_img Online Wellness Smart City Google When Seiichi Miyake found out a close friend was losing the ability to see clearly, he wanted to help. That desire led to an entirely new way for the visually impaired to navigate big cities, railways and parks. In 1965, Miyake invented the tactile paving slab (or “tenji block” in Japan) with his own money. Monday’s Google Doodle celebrates the introduction of the block 52 years ago.The doodle from March 18, 2019. Google The tenji blocks were first installed in the Japanese city of Okayama on March 18, 1967, next to a school for the blind, and they would go on to revolutionize the way the visually impaired interact with the world, making it safer and easier to get around public spaces independently.Miyake’s original design, which was installed in all Japan Railway platforms in the 1970s and rapidly found its way to cities across the globe, featured two tactile patterns that people with visual impairments can detect with a cane or through their feet — providing cues on which way they should head.Subway tracks in New York with the yellow tenji tiles.Subway tracks in New York with the yellow tenji tiles. Keith Getter/Getty Images One pattern features a series of raised lines that indicate “forward”. The second design is commonly referred to as the “truncated domes” pattern, a series of small bumps that act as a “stop” sign — typically at the edge of a train platform or before a motorway.A number of different patterns have been designed since, with smaller raised dots or more pill-shaped bumps signifying different directional cues. For instance, when the raised lines are horizontal in the direction of travel, that might mean “look out for steps ahead”. All of those cues, which many may not even notice as they wander through a city, are incredibly important for those with limited vision. 4:33 Share your voice Comments Now playing: Watch this: Google Doodle Google 49 Photos Tags Microsoft tech teaches children who are blind how to… Our favorite Google Doodles through the years 23last_img read more

Mini John Cooper Works GP gets shaken down at the Nurburgring

Mini Mini first introduced the John Cooper Works GP hot hatch by way of a wildly styled concept at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. Now, as we approach its official debut, Mini wanted to show off its latest creation a little bit, so it went to the one place a proper performer can really stretch its legs — the Nurburgring Nordschleife.Mini this weekend showed off its John Cooper Works GP hatchback to the public for the first time. It was still clad in camouflage, mind you, but it nevertheless arrived at the Nurburgring as part of the 24-hour race this past weekend, and it cooked its way around the ‘Ring in less than 8 minutes, which is a huge leap forward from the last GP variant, which needed 8 minutes and 23 seconds to lap the Green Hell.While its Nurburgring lap time is new, Mini didn’t give out any more details that we didn’t already know. Its turbocharged four-cylinder gas engine will make in excess of 300 horsepower, but Mini hasn’t given an official output yet. It’ll be pretty easy to tell the GP apart from other John Cooper Works creations, because it’s rocking some crazy fender flares and a big ol’ wing out back. Only 3,000 models will be built, and it’s unclear how many are set aside for each market, so it’s likely that your home country will be getting far fewer than that total number.Mini first confirmed that it would build a new John Cooper Works GP model in late 2018. Since then, the automaker has been relatively mum about the vehicle, teasing only a bit of its rear wing and mentioning the estimated power output. We’ll have to wait a little longer to find out more — a debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September doesn’t seem like too much of a stretch, but we’ll have to wait for Mini to confirm that. 1:30 Review • 2018 Mini JCW Hardtop: Small and sporty, but a bit too sharplast_img read more

Saaho makers reveal interesting details of Prabhas Shraddha Kapoors romantic songs

first_imgPrabhas and Shraddha Kapoor on the shooting set of Saaho in AustriaPR HandoutThe makers of Saaho, who have kept the details of its shoot under wraps, have now revealed the interesting aspects of Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor’s romantic songs shot in exotic locales of Austria.Saaho is currently in the last leg of its shoot and two songs were shot in several locations across Innsbruck and Tirol regions of Austria in the final schedule.

Did India lose to England on purpose to avoid Pakistan Sarfaraz Ahmed

first_imgThe World Cup went right down to the wire as far as qualification for the semi-finals was concerned. Pakistan, after a jittery start, suddenly erupted to life and bounced back into contention. However, the needed other results to go in their favour and hence, hinged all their hopes on India vs England match. Pakistan wanted India to win, but hosts England came out firing on all cylinders as they downed India.This defeat resonated in Pakistan’s eventual exit and this also led to former players and pundits questioning India’s approach and gamesmanship in the match against England. There were theories that Kohli and co. deliberately lost in order to thwart Pakistan’s chances of qualification.However, Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed has shot down such theories and said that England played well to win the game. MS DhoniICC Twitter”No, no, it is not right to say this. I don’t think India lost because of us. England played well to win,” Sarfaraz told reporters after returning home.’Don’t think we need to be ashamed of anything’ Getty ImagesThe Pakistan skipper also refused to apologise for the performance of his side and said that the team had not performed poorly as was being made out in the media.”I don’t think we need to be ashamed of anything. We had a tough time in the first five matches especially after the defeat to India but I am proud of the way the team fought back to win the last four matches,” Sarfaraz said.He also insisted that there are no plans of giving up captaincy and that he will stay in his post and do his best to take the team to the next level, especially with the World T20 slated to be held in Australia.”The Pakistan Cricket Board will decide on who will be the captain. But personally, since you asked me, I know these players very well now. Most of them are young and if we learn from our mistakes in the World Cup, I can take this team to the next level, especially with the World T20 Cup coming up next year in Australia,” Sarfaraz added.The Pakistan captain said that he was hurt by a few of the comments made post the India loss and that Pakistan had encountered very tough conditions, but the players felt very isolated after the hurtful comments which were flung towards them after they went down to India.”There were some incidents with the players including myself in London which we reported to the Board. They were not needed and it hurt and shook the players. We were upset at losing to India but we didn’t expect such reactions, even though isolated,” the skipper said.last_img read more

Cash crunch Currency situation at ATMs improving says SBI

first_imgCash crunch in ATMsIANSCountry’s largest lender SBI (State Bank of India) stated Wednesday that the cash availability at its automated teller machines (ATMs) across the country has improved in the past 24 hours.The latest announcement from the SBI comes after the reports of acute currency shortage in many states in the country.”Availability of cash in SBI ATM has improved in the last 24 hours. Efforts are being made on a continuous basis to improve the cash availability further in a few geographies. Overall issue of less cash should come to normalcy within soonest possible time. We are constantly monitoring the situation and making immense efforts to ensure the supply of currency in abundance at all our ATMs,” news agency PTI reported quoting Neeraj Vyas, the chief operating officer of SBI.The SBI is constantly monitoring the situation and making efforts to ensure the supply of currency in abundance at all SBI ATMs, the statement added.Earlier reports from various states, including Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Telangana, Maharashtra, and Bihar, said that a majority of ATMs were facing a cash crunch due to non-supply of notes from the nodal branches of banks.The government and the Reserve Bank of India have assured that the cash scarcity is temporary. “It is clarified at the outset that there is sufficient cash in the RBI vaults and currency chests,” The RBI said in a press release Tuesday.”The shortage may be felt in some pockets largely due to logistical issues of replenishing ATMs frequently and the recalibration of ATMs being still underway. RBI is closely monitoring both these aspects” the central bank said.”RBI is also taking steps to move currency to areas which are witnessing unusually large cash withdrawals”, it added.last_img read more

India Chinas statements on Rohingya not considerable Hasina

first_imgPrime minister Sheikh Hasina on Friday said it is not considerable to Bangladesh what India and China are saying about the Rohingya issue.”Their [India and China] diplomats saw the woes of the Rohingyas and they’re very much sympathetic to them. We saw that,” she said.The prime minister was responding to a question during a press conference at the Bangladesh Permanent Mission at the UN in New York.She also mentioned that India and China came forward with humanitarian assistance and they are sending relief materials to Bangladesh for the Rohingya refugees. “They’re extending all sorts of cooperation.”Hasina said all the diplomats, stationed in Dhaka, went to the Rohingya camps in Cox’s Bazar to see for themselves the sufferings of the refugees. “They talked to them (Rohingyas)… they’re all sympathetic to the Rohingya refugees,” she said.The prime minister said after giving shelter to some 800,000 Myanmar nationals in Bangladesh, the country is facing a complex crisis about their food, accommodation, emergency relief and their repatriation.Talking about her meeting with UN gecretary general Antonio Guterres, Hasina said he highly appreciated Bangladesh for standing in their bad time by the Rohingya refugees fleeing persecution by Myanmar security forces in Rakhine State. “He (UN secretary general) also said he will do everything possible from his side to resolve the problem permanently,” she added.Hasina said as the government is providing food to Bangladesh’s 16 crore people, it will not be a big deal for the country to feed another 800,000 Rohingya refugees. “If needed, we’ll eat one time a day and share our food with them (Rohingyas) during other time,” she said.last_img read more
