U.S. Vice President Mike Pence attended the games’ opening ceremony two weeks ago and sat in the same VIP box as North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s sister and the country’s nominal head of state.They did not interact; the countries have no diplomatic relations. However, Pence’s office said later that a potential meeting between the two sides was scratched at the last minute by the North Koreans after Pence condemned human rights violations and new economic sanctions were announced.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Ivanka Trump waves during the third heat of the four-man bobsled competition final at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, Sunday, Feb. 25, 2018.

The campaign was launched earlier this week by Turkish-origin author and rights activist Ali Can, who dubbed it #MeTwo — a play on the #MeToo movement that highlights women’s experiences of sexual harassment, and a comment by Ozil about having “two hearts”.Ozil dropped a bombshell on Sunday when he announced in a stinging letter that he would no longer play for Germany after he faced racist abuse for posing for a picture alongside Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.“I have two hearts, one German and one Turkish,” wrote Ozil, who accused the German Football Federation (DFB) of failing to stand up for him after critics questioned his patriotism and singled him out for blame after Germany’s World Cup flop.The controversy has prompted heated debate in German media about racism and integration.“We need a #MeToo debate for people with a migrant background,” Can, who has lived in Germany since he was a toddler, said in a video posted online on Tuesday.“I am more than just one identity. I feel at home in Germany… at the same I can feel connected to another country,” he said. “The two sides blend together, one doesn’t exclude the other.”Mesut Ozil of Arsenal sits at the players bench during a match against Atletico Madrid at the International Champions Cup football match in Singapore on July 26, 2018 © AFP / Roslan RAHMANThe #MeTwo hashtag quickly went viral as thousands posted about their run-ins with prejudice and racism in Germany.“You’re well integrated for a Turk” and “Don’t you wear a headscarf?” were cited as “classic examples” of remarks endured by Twitter user Hatdische Indsche.Many also complained about discrimination from landlords in the search for a flat or house, because of their skin colour or foreign-sounding names.“When you can’t get an answer, but your German girlfriend gets instant replies to the same offer. After we got married and she changed her name, she stopped getting answers too,” wrote Twitter user Oguz Yilmaz.Malcolm Oscar Uzoma Odeh-Ohanwe, who tweets as MalcolmMusic, recounted being called “a monkey” at high school years ago when he was a dread-locked teenager.Foreign Minister Heiko Maas praised the campaign, saying it was “impressive and painful” to see how many stories were flooding in.“If you think racism in Germany is no longer a problem, I recommend reading through all the #MeTwo tweets,” he tweeted.“Let us raise our voice with them: against racism, anytime, anywhere.”0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Mesut Ozil of Arsenal sits at the players bench during a match against Atletico Madrid at the International Champions Cup football match in Singapore on July 26, 2018. © AFP / Roslan RAHMANFRANKFURT, Germany, Jul 27 – Thousands of people in Germany with migrant backgrounds are sharing stories of everyday discrimination under the hashtag #MeTwo, inspired by football star Mesut Ozil’s resignation from Germany’s national team over racism.“When I’m the only-non white person in a crowded train and the police gets in, I’m the only one who is asked to show ID,” tweeted Der Spiegel reporter Hasnain Kazim, as the discussion trended on German Twitter Friday.
Paul Lambert believes Aston Villa’s struggles this season owe much to their decision to recruit so many foreign players in the summer.Tim Sherwood was axed by Villa on Sunday after a run of six successive defeats in the Premier League and his predecessor, Lambert, feels dressing room language issues may have played a big part in his demise.The Midlands club made a host of signings from across Europe in the close season, with French-speaking trio Jordan Amavi, Jordan Ayew and Jordan Veretout and Spaniards Adama Traore and Jose Angel Crespo among the additions.“The dressing room seems to be all mixed languages,” the former Villa boss and one-time Borussia Dortmund star told talkSPORT.“When you get into a dressing room and it’s your culture and there are a lot of foreign lads in there, I think the foreign lads have got to know the language.“When I played in Germany, I thought I am going to have to learn really quickly so I knew the football language on the pitch. Looking at Villa at the moment, I’m not so sure a lot of the lads know what’s hit them.”Remi Garde is the favourite to replace Sherwood in the Villa Park hotseat and Lambert believes the club may have targeted the Frenchman due to the current make-up of their squad.“Whether Remi Garde comes in to get a handle on the French-speaking lads, maybe there is an element of that,” he said.

A JUDGE yesterday rejected a damages claim against a Co Donegal dating agency by a woman who said she had not found romance.Annmarie McBrearty (35), of Oldtown, Letterkenny, told Donegal District Court she was introduced to four men through the The Happy Matchmaker agency without finding romance, today’s Irish Times reports. Judge Kevin Kilrane dismissed her claim for €6,348.99 for negligence, breach of duty and fraudulent misrepresentation.Ms McBrearty told of paying €600 to the Ballintra-based agency in January 2009 for introductions to 12 men.The paper reported that she met one man in a coffee shop near Argos in Letterkenny for 30 minutes.When she reached to give him a peck on the cheek in “a polite goodbye” she claimed that “he put his arm around me and as I leaned forward he put his tongue down my mouth. I was disgusted. It was not that we were going to start snogging in a shopping centre in the middle of the day.”The Irish Times report said Mary Mitchell told the court of her screening system before matching couples. She said since the case was publicised she had received threatening calls. The judge said Ms McBrearty, was not vulnerable but articulate and well able to state her case. “Four men were introduced to her and they all appeared to be within the range of compatibility.”Full report here: http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/ireland/2011/0329/1224293299141.htmlJUDGE DISMISSES CASE AGAINST DONEGAL DATING AGENCY was last modified: March 28th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)

Poland v Senegal Poland vs Senegal: Live blog, text commentary, line-ups, stream & TV channel Goal Last updated 1 year ago 14:45 6/19/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Shaun Botterill Poland v Senegal World Cup Poland Senegal Powerade Group H is arguably the most competitive at the World Cup and both teams will be looking for a positive start to the tournament in Russia FULL TIME: Senegal win 2-1 and this group has been blown wide open with the two favourites to progress both losing 2-1. Senegal and Japan are in the driving seat but it’s a tough one to call.90+1: Poland win themselves a corner now, and swing it in quickly; Khadim N’Diaye makes a great diving take to pick it out though. Senegal hold on for now. Four added minutes88 Mins: Senegal Sub: Senegal try to sure things up as Kouyate comes on for N’diaye. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Sorry, Cristiano! Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now Arsenal would be selling their soul with Mourinho move 86 Mins: GOAL! We are in for a nailbiting final couple of minutes. A good free kick from deep is put into the area where Krychowiak rises above everyone and finds the back of the net. Great header. 2-183 Mins: Poland Sub: Poland make their final change with Piszczek replaced by Bartosz Bereszynski82 Mins: Lewandowski and Rybus combine in the box as the former bursts into life for a moment with a little bit of magic to get around three Senegal defenders, yet the pass from the former to the latter is flagged as offside.80 Mins: Kownacki rises up to meet a Rybus square cross bulleted in from the left, but can only plant his header straight to the keeper.79 Mins: Poland’s midfield has, for most of this game, looked to be out of ideas, sluggish and stocky in the middle. Shy of something special, they’ve taken a big knock to their hopes of topping Group H today.75 Mins: Senegal Sub: That knock is proving too painful for Niang; Moussa Konate duly replaces him as the goalscorer leaves to applause from the Senegal fans.73 Mins: Poland Sub: Arkadiusz Milik is replaced by Dawid Kownacki.72 Mins: Yellow card for Idrissa Gana Gueye.70 Mins: Milik! The Poland man just clips a flat pass at the near-right post wide from Piszczek after slipping in around the back. The time to pull a result out of the hat is running out.65 Mins: Cionek and Mane tangle as the Senegal man seeks a third goal; the free-kick goes the way of the former just on the edge of the Poland box.64 Mins: That has got to be one of the biggest mistakes of the World Cup so far. Poland have a mountain to climb now; will they introduce their last two changes sooner rather than later as they look to claw themselves back into competition?63 Mins: Senegal Sub: Poland appear to be absolutely furious about something, loudly remonstrating with referee Nawaf Shukralla, as Senegal make their first change ahead of the restart. Diouf is off and it is Cheikh N’Doye of Birmingham City who takes his place.59 Mins: NIANG SCORES! 2-0 TO SENEGAL! It’s an absolutely awful error from Poland to gift their opponents a second goal. Just inside the centre circle, under little pressure, Krychowiak clips a high back-pass to Bednarek that the substitute is completely unprepared for. Niang races in unmarked off the right wing and beats both the defender and Szczesny, who tears out of his box to try and stop it. A neat chip over the keeper leaves an open net and the Torino man taps home for his first international goal. 2-0 to Senegal after an hour!56 Mins: Piszczek! The Poland man has a great chance to level the scores as Rybus tips a lovely flat cross wide to the right of the box from the left flank, but the defender fails to catch it on the volley and smothers it wide instead.54 Mins: Diouf should have made it two for Senegal! The striker is met by a lovely cut-back 10 yards out, and stumbles over the ball, allowing Piszczek to take it away. Niang looks to claim it back quickly but instead fouls the Poland man and concedes a free-kick.52 Mins: Down the other end, Mane arrives into the Poland box to blast a Diouf cut-back into the legs of Pazdan as Senegal create a swift counter-attack, with the deflection spilling to Cionek who clears deep.50 Mins: CLOSE! Lewandowski’s free kick is on target but it lacks the power to beat Khadim N’Diaye whp parries it away acrobatically.48 Mins: Lewandowski starting to come alive? He bursts through the Poland back line before Salif Sane comes across and fouls him. Yellow card for the defender and a free kick in a dangerous position.46 Mins: With barely a minute on the pitch, Bednarek goes down under a high challenge in his own box after Niang lofts a cross in. He gets back to his feet after a few moments following treatment by the medical staff and is good to continue.46 Mins: Poland get the second half started.Poland Sub: Jakub Błaszczykowski comes off for Jan BednarekExpect Poland to potentially make some changes to their rather central bearing midfield at the break as the look to cover the gaps out on the wings exploited by Senegal. As for Ailou Cisse’s team? They may introduce an additional defensive player at around the hour mark if their lead remains, in order to sit back and defend their advantage.An Idrissa Guye strike that took a big deflection for a Thiago Cionek own-goal is the difference at Spartak Stadium between Poland and Senegal at the break, but it has been an uninspired showing from Robert Lewandowski and his side in Moscow. Unable to get good service from his midfield, the Bayern Munich forward has been mostly an isolated figure as Sadio Mane’s team have outmuscled them in the centre of the pitch – and now they must overcome a one-goal deficit in order to get their World Cup campaign back on track. At half-time, it’s Poland 0-1 Senegal.HALF TIME: Senegal go in 1-0 up at halftime, can they hold on and start their second World Cup campaign with a win? Poland have been nullified in attack with Robert Lewandowski barely getting a kick in the first half. Improvement needed for both sides. 42 Mins: It’s nearly two goals in five minutes for Senegal; on the back of a corner conceded by Pazdan, Sane heads Niang’s set-piece play wide at the near-right post after being left unmarked. Poland look all at sea around the back after that opener.38 Mins: GOOOOOAL! It took a stroke of luck for their to be the breakthreough, Idrissa Gueye strikes it from 25 yards, the striker looks like no danger to the goalkeeper but a massive deflection from Thiago Cionek has seen the ball go past Szczesny. 1-0 Senegal through an own goal.36 Mins: There has yet to be a shot on target in this game; the only other match in this World Cup that failed to register such an effort in the first half was Croatia against Nigeria.34 Mins: Or will they? Diouf spurns a golden chance to head home an opening goal for Senegal as his just leaps under a cross squared in from Sabaly out on the right wing, though a belated flag from the linesman would have nixed any potential score regardless.32 Mins: It’s been an even-keeled affair for the most part – but both sides are missing a killer instinct right now. There’s no real sense of danger that either will find a breakthrough before half-time.30 Mins: Lewandowski nips into the Senegal box seeking a long ball put in from the left wing; it bounces kindly for keeper Khadim N’Diaye however and he has no trouble snaffling it from under the Bayern Munich man’s nose.29 Mins: Poland’s more direct approach of the last ten minutes has seen them gain an upswing in time on the ball; they currenly have a shade over 60 percent possession.26 Mins: Wague clips Grosicki with a short challenge as the pair tussle for possession inside the Poland half; the latter comes up with a free-kick as a result24 Mins: N’Diaye is the latest Senegal man to trouble the Polish defence and another communication error opens up a gap for him. His effort comes to nothing though, spilling wide under belated pressure; Szczesny gets the goal-kick.22 Mins: That’s more like it fom Poland; Zielinski tips a ball into the Senegal box on the right that sweeps over the defence and finds Grosicki who just heads it over the crossbar.20 Mins: Poland are looking prone to switching off in both attack and defence so far; they haven’t been able to supply Lewandowski with the deliveries he needs, and now Pazdan clears a Senegal cross into the box by almost kicking his own goalkeeper in the face. They need to sort out their communication, and fast.18 Mins: What a chance for Senegal! Sabaly picks out a loose pass from Zielinski inside his own half and breaks into a run down the left flank, stepping in off the wing to clip a fabulous ball through for Niang. Level with two defenders and with only the keeper to beat, he skews it somewhere between a shot and a square pass, and the ball flies out wide by the far-right post. A frustrating finish to a fantastic piece of play.16 Mins: Senegal think they have a shout for a penalty after Rybus clips Diouf inside the Poland box with both in pursuit of a Niang through-ball; the referee waves it away and VAR does not subsequently intervene either.14 Mins: Down the other end, Koulibaly concedes a corner under pressure from Lewandowski, who has been kept rather quiet so far by Senegal. Poland swing it in flat and low, only for Milik to lose it to Sabaly on the edge of the box, who clears deep and away from danger.13 Mins: Sane steps up to take and duly curls it over the wall and well wide of the goal to the left. It’s a maddening effort from the defender, and Poland have a goal-kick.12 Mins: Having been dispossessed by Mane, Krychowiak lunges after Niang and gets the ball back; yet the referee deems the latter tackle to be a foul and duly books the Poland man to his anger. Free-kick 30 or so yards out slightly to the left for Senegal…10 Mins: Despite looking a little loose around the back in the opening minutes, Senegal have settled the better of the pair in Moscow. Mane looks to slip a pass through into the left of the Poland box, around Cionek for Diouf; he doesn’t get the weight behind it though and the striker oversteps the ball, allowing Szczesny to claim.8 Mins: Blaszczykowski is flagged for offside as Poland look to alleviate the pressure on their defence with a long ball down the right; Sabaly traps him smartly and wins his side the free-kick.7 Mins: Senegal’s corner only finds the first man and Poland look to have survived the attack, only for Niang to dart back in with a loose pass on the left. He tries to curl it back towards the centre of the box, seeking Mane; Szczesny dives low off his line to claim before it can reach the striker.6 Mins: Cionek gives a needless corner away for Poland now after Diouf ran him close into the box; the Senegal forward slipped, yet the defender still opted to head out rather than to his keeper.4 Mins: It’s a cagey opening from Poland, who probe down the middle before going left instead from halfway. A nice cut-back cross is tipped in for Blaszczykowski; Sane gets in under his feet to sweep the ball away from danger3 Mins: Some loose passing around the back of their defence causes a momentary worry for Senegal, but Sane and Wague manage to create a fluid move down the right channel to lift the pressure off their back third of the field.1 Min: KICK OFF! Senegal get the game underway The teams have emerged at Spartak Stadium for the national anthems. The heavy rain that drenched Moscow in the build-up to the game appears to have abated for now, though conditions may be a little slippery underfoot.Senegal meanwhile are also unbeaten in their previous group stage appearance in 2002; aside from that famous victory against France, they also drew against Denmark and Uruguay to claim second place and progress to the round of 16, where they also defeated Sweden.Poland have met – and are undefeated against – African opposition on three previous occasions at the World Cup; Tunisia in 1978, Cameroon in 1982 and Morocco in 1986. Combined, the trio of encounters have produced only a single goal; a winning strike from Grzegorz Lato against Tunisia.Whilst Mane may have only picked up a single goal in qualification, in a 2-2 draw against Burkina Faso, the Liverpool forward helped his country arrive in Russia with an unbeaten record; they won four and drew two in a group including former hosts South Africa as they progressed to their sophomore tournament. The effect of captain Lewandowski on Poland cannot be downplayed; the Bayern Munich star was the top scorer in the UEFA World Cup qualifiers with 16 goals, netting 56% of his side’s total haul on the road to Russia. Only one other player scored more than once; Kamil Grosicki mustered three.Senegal’s return has taken even longer; it’s been 16 years since their only previous appearance, at South Korea and Japan 2002. On that occasion, they shocked the world, defeating reigning champions France in the group stage and making it to the quarter-finals where they fell to Turkey. Aliou Cisse was captain of the national side that day; now, he takes charge of his second major tournament as manager, having guided his team to the quarter-finals of the 2017 African Cup of Nations.It’s taken over a decade for Poland to get back to the World Cup, having last competed in Germany 2006, but the wait very well may be worth it; since taking charge in 2013, manager Adam Nawałka has led taken them to the quarter-finals of Euro 2016 and a top-ten place in the FIFA World Rankings that sees them as the top seed in Group H. They haven’t been out of the group stages for 32 years though, since Mexico 1986; can they bag three points against their opponents today to set them on the path to breaking their streak?As for the rest of the lineups, both teams have named strong starting XIs for their first game of the tournament; defender Kamil Glik is the only major absentee for Poland, named on the bench as he continues to recover from a shoulder knock, whilst Senegal name two further English-based players alongside Liverpool’s Mane in the shape of Everton midfielder Idrissa Gueye and Stoke striker Mame Biram Diouf.30 Mins to KO: Hello and welcome to live coverage of the 2018 World Cup in Russia as Poland and Senegal wrap up the first round of fixtures in the group stages with a clash at Spartak Stadium in Moscow. The pair face off the for this time in their history in the second match of Group H today – and with Japan springing an upset victory over 2014 quarter-finalists Colombia in Saransk, will either of them snare a win in the capital to join them in the race for the round of 16?

Solskjaer: Man Utd not about STUPID square and backpassesby Paul Vegas9 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says it’s important the team plays in the club’s best traditions.Until now he has been careful not to criticise the work of his predecessor, but he looks to have let his guard down for the first time in an interview with Malaysian TV station Astro Supersport.Solskjaer said: “Man Utd is built around, attacking football and going forwards, not stupid square and backpasses.”The comment about square passes is thought to have been a direct reference to the style of play he discovered in his squad when he arrived just before Christmas. Solskjaer joined Teddy Sheringham on Astro Supersport after the 1-0 win over Tottenham, and was asked by his former team-mate what he needed to change.The United boss said: “The first thing you talk about is that you do need to smile when you are a Manchester United player, you do enjoy it because when it’s over, you miss it.“It’s about at attacking, it’s about pace, power, attack quickly.”I know we didn’t have the best of pace but we still attacked.“That’s what Man Utd is built around, attacking football and going forwards, not stupid square and backpasses.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

I think you saw there was one counter situation when he really tried and I would say on a non-dead-leg day he will get that ball, but no chance.”Then we say, ‘come on, now we have to do it’ and changed. That’s it.”
Sonebhadra: Retired IAS officer of Bihar cadre, Prabhat Misra, whose name is being linked to the land dispute that led to the Sonebhadra massacre, has denied charges of land grabbing and said that he had all papers to prove the legality of that land deal.The officer, now 86, is settled in Patna.He claimed that his father-in-law, Maheshwar Prasad Narain Sinha had formed Adarsh Sahkari Krishi Samiti, Ubha-Sapahi, in 1951 after purchasing 1,000 bigha land from Raja Burhar, Anand Bramhshah.

Earlier, in 1949, then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru had nominated Singh as India’s ambassador to Nepal. Sinha was also Socialist Party’s Rajya Sabha MP from April 3, 1952 to April 2, 1956.

After Sinha’s death in 1978, his wife Parvati Devi was elected president of society by the members.” In 1985, Sinha’s wife died and as per her will, Misra’s daughter, Vinita Sharma, also got 72 bigha land. “In 2017, my wife Asha and daughter Vinita sold the 144 bigha land in Ubha and Sapai villages to Yagya Dutt Bhurtiya for Rs 50 lakh, which my wife donated to Shirdi Sai Shrine Board,” said the retired official.However, advocate Nityanand Dwiwedi, who is fighting the legal battle for Gond tribals dismissed the retired official’s claims and contested the legality of society itself as Sinha was a resident of Bihar.”Under Society Registration Act, he cannot register a society in Uttar Pradesh and moreover, if the society was made after purchase of land, there must be some document like sale deed and registration or ‘patta’ (document related to land ownership) of land, let them show it,” said the lawyer.Prabhat Misra said: “I have all the papers but now, since the case is being investigated by government, I am not willing to share them with media”.The official’s name has been cropping up in the land dispute following the Sonebhadra massacre in which 10 people were killed on July 17.Misra said that he was never posted in Mirzapur (before Sonebhadra was made a separate district) and hence allegations of his having used his clout to get the land were baseless.
