Griezmann reminds everyone that Atletico is still in La Liga

Griezmann reminds everyone that Atletico is still in La Liga

first_imgEven though the elimination against Girona was painful for Atletico Madrid, striker Antoine Griezmann wanted to remind everyone they are still in La Liga.Despite last Wednesday’s Copa del Rey elimination for Atletico Madrid against Girona, this shocking setback doesn’t stir Antoine Griezmann from the main two objectives this season.The Colchoneros began the season with a clear goal, which is to fight for La Liga and most importantly, the Champions League.The continental tournament’s final will take place at the new Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid, a unique opportunity for all Atletico fans that the club doesn’t want to pass and they are still determined to get all the way to the last stages of the competition.But fortunately for them, the Colchoneros are also still in the fight to win La Liga this season and they are far from finished despite last Thursday’s heartbreak.Manager Diego Simeone did send a hopeful message after the match, one that struck a nerve amongst the players and possible will help them forget this sour moment sooner rather than later.Such a tight schedule of games don’t leave any time to delve into what happened, Atletico Madrid has a new commitment on Saturday when they visit Huesca for La Liga.🏆🏧 @AntoGriezmann, winner of @futbolmahou’s #Jugador5EstrellasATM Award for December, on the match against @SDHuesca: “We hope to get the three points.”#AúpaAtleti pic.twitter.com/YtkFM5zbyb— Atlético de Madrid (@atletienglish) January 18, 2019The Colchoneros are currently second placed on the table with 38 units, they are only five points behind FC Barcelona who have 43.Diego Simeone’s players are currently not able to indulge themselves into slacking off, they have a very complicated visit on Saturday and they simply can’t drop off any more points if they want to still consider themselves title contenders.Despite the main objective being the Champions League this season, even the players are aware that fighting for La Liga is just as important.“We are okay, we are still fighting for the first position in La Liga but there are many matches still ahead and we have to see where we end up by the end of the season,” said Griezmann as quoted by Diario Sport.“We have to keep working hard, we have to win every single match we have left and we can’t leave any points behind.”“Each away match is always complicated because the rival tends to park the bus, plus we always have their supporters pushing their squad.”Sergio Ramos, Real MadridZidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.“We have to grow stronger and hopefully, we can get the three points at Huesca,” he added.El trofeo #Jugador5EstrellasATM de diciembre en el @Atleti ya ha sido entregado a @AntoGriezmann ¡Enhorabuena! ⚽️🏆 pic.twitter.com/bnPoe2OMS5— Fútbol Mahou (@futbolmahou) January 18, 2019Although the Colchoneros are not feeling quite happy for the elimination, even manager Diego Simeone wanted to let the players know that they all need to change the chip now and they can’t waste any more time.Atletico Madrid has a recent poor history with eliminations of this nature, they recently got eliminated in last season’s Champions League by modest Qarabag in the Round of 16 but they were able to recover by winning the Europa League.In past seasons, the two times European Cup finalist was already eliminated by Rubin Kazan in the UEFA Europa League and once again by Celta de Vigo in Copa del Rey.The latest from last Wednesday, just adds up to the dark history of Diego Simeone as the Atletico Madrid manager.The biggest hope is that this new setback doesn’t affect the other competitions, ‘Cholo’ is only hoping that he can have the patience this season for anything that comes his way.Because let us not fool ourselves, if Atletico Madrid doesn’t get to at least compete for the two competitions they have left with honor, there is a big chance that the club’s board of directors decide to sack Diego Simeone for next season.🎥 | #ATMFLASHSimeone, Koke and Correa spoke after the #AtletiGirona match.#AúpaAtleti pic.twitter.com/tCTe7UjJwh— Atlético de Madrid (@atletienglish) January 16, 2019Which of the two remaining competitions can Atletico Madrid win by the end of the season?

COPY LINKAD Loading … Representative ImageReutersPoland, the current president of United Nations Security Council (UNSC), on Monday, dismissed Pakistan’s efforts of raising the Kashmir issue to the international security body and called for finding a bilateral solution, according to reports. “Poland hopes that both countries can work out a mutually beneficial solution bilaterally.” Poland’s ambassador to India Adam Burakowski told The Indian Express.”Like the European Union, we are in favour of a dialogue between India and Pakistan,” he added.Burakowski further said that as a non-permanent member of the UNSC, Poland stands ready to prevent actions impacting security situation. “I would like to emphasise on the word ‘bilaterally’, that’s the keyword,” he added.A Polish Foreign Ministry statement revealed that the Indian Minister of External Affairs, S Jaishankar, had explained to Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz on August 8, that the amendment of the Indian Constitution is of “strictly internal nature” and aims at “bringing security to the region that is particularly vulnerable to terrorist attacks,” reported TIE.Pakistan has sought to raise to the UN security council the recent move by the Indian government, which scrapped Jammu and Kashmir’s special status provided under Article 370 of the Constitution.The report came on the same day Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi claimed that it will be difficult to find support against India from the five permanent members (P5) of the UNSC. He said garnering support “even from Muslim nations” would be difficult due to their strong economic relations with India.Qureshi said at a press conference on Monday, “People in the Security Council aren’t standing with flowers; any of the P5 members can be a hurdle. There shouldn’t be any ambiguity on that, do not live in a fool’s paradise.”The Security Council stated last week that New Delhi’s move was “within the framework of the Constitution of the Republic of India” and called for both the countries to “not allow a new aggravation of the situation in the region as a result of the decisions”.Russia, a permanent member of the UNSC, echoed the UN Chief’s statement on Article 370 and said, “We hope that the differences between them will be resolved by political and diplomatic means on a bilateral basis in accordance with the provisions of the Simla Agreement of 1972 and the Lahore Declaration of 1999.”Both the agreements state that Kashmir is a bilateral matter between India and Pakistan.Pakistan expelled Indian High Commissioner Ajay Bisaria on August 7 and suspended all bilateral ties with India in retaliation to New Delhi’s decision. The neighbouring country said the move was an “illegal, unilateral, reckless and coercive attempt” by India.center_img UN chief urges India & Pakistan to exercise ‘maximum restraint’ on Kashmir, recalls Simla agreementlast_img read more

For the love of poetry

For the love of poetry

first_imgFor the lovers of the poetic tradition, the week promises to be an experience of a lifetime as over 38 poets from 20 Indian languages come together for a unique festival to celebrate Indian poetry.Presented by Delhi Government’s Department of Art, Culture & Languages and Hindi Academy, the ‘Bhartiya Kavita Bimb’ will be inaugurated by Chief Minister of Delhi Sheila Dikshit on 6 September, in the presence of Prof Kiran Walia, Minister for Education, Social Welfare, Women & Child Department, Languages and Prof Ashok Chakradhar, eminent Hindi poet and Vice President, Hindi Academy. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The ‘Festival of Indian poetry’ is an attempt to celebrate the richness of Indian languages and the compositions they are producing in an era of globalization and exchange when the West has had a major impact on the culture of the world.Eminent Hindi poets like Shri Arun Kamal, Shri Mohan Singh, Shri Rajkumar ‘Krishak’, Dr Prabha Pant, will share the festival stage with poets of all Indian languages including the likes of Dr Madan Gopal Ladha (Rajasthani), R Meenakshi (Tamil), Shri Shoaib Eaza (Urdu), Dr Kamini Kamayani (Maithili) and Sadhna Sanyal (Assamese), among several others. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThe festival will be held over two days and four sessions during which the poets will come together and recite some of their best works.The festival is a twin celebration of poetry and the emotions it evokes as well as the poetic evolution of various Indian languages and how they complement each other.’Be it in Hindi, English, Urdu or Tamil, poetry evokes a sea of emotions. With greater interactions and exchanges between different languages, poetic traditions also evolve over time and grow richer and more beautiful. It has been a tradition of our composite culture that every segment of it has imbibed values from parallel traditions.  Put in a nutshell, the different languages and cultures in India are so different, yet in a way they are also reflections of each other. This is what we are celebrating,’ says Dr Harisuman Bisht, renowned author and Secretary of Hindi Academy.In a way, the festival is also an attempt to present Indian poetry as a collective unit, rather than classify it into categories of Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam, Manipuri or Bhojpuri languages. In the opening session of the festival, noted critic Dr. Devendra Chaubey will also present his reading and vision of what Indian poetry as a collective will evolve into over the coming years.So, if you love the poetic traditions of India, do not miss the festival. It is a rare confluence of diversity and richness.last_img read more

Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeSources informed that there is a wine shop located in front of the decorator’s shop where Ganesh used to work. As the owner is paralysed and has not been moving since almost five years, Ganesh used to take care of the shop and monetory details. A few months ago, Das allegedly wanted to install a temporary food stall in front of the decorator’s shop to which Ganesh had opposed. Later, the matter went to the councillor’s office where the councillor stood in favour of Ganesh as putting up a temporary shop on a government property is illegal.

Loneliness makes people more selfish

Loneliness makes people more selfish

first_imgLoneliness can trigger a vicious cycle by making people more selfish which in turn leads to further social isolation, say scientists.The findings show that such effects create a positive feedback loop between the two traits.As increased loneliness heightens self-centredness, the latter then contributes further to enhanced loneliness.”If you get more self-centred, you run the risk of staying locked in to feeling socially isolated,” said John Cacioppo, professor at the University of Chicago in the US. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”Targeting self-centredness as part of an intervention to lessen loneliness may help break a positive feedback loop that maintains or worsens loneliness over time,” researchers said.The outcome that loneliness increases self-centredness was expected, but the data showing that self-centredness also affected loneliness was a surprise, said Stephanie Cacioppo, assistant professor at University of Chicago. In previous researches, scientists had reviewed rates of loneliness in young to older adults across the globe. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveFive to 10 per cent of this population complained of feeling lonely constantly, frequently or all the time. Another 30 to 40 per cent complained of feeling lonely constantly.The new findings published in Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, are based on 11 years of data taken from 229 individuals who ranged from 50 to 68 years of age at the start of the study.They were a diverse sample of randomly selected individuals drawn from the general population who varied in age, gender, ethnicity and socioeconomic status. Early psychological research treated loneliness as an anomalous or temporary feeling of distress that had no redeeming value or adaptive purpose. In 2006, researchers proposed an evolutionary theory of loneliness based on a neuroscientific or biological approach.In this view, evolution has shaped the brain to incline humans toward certain emotions, thoughts and behaviour.”A variety of biological mechanisms have evolved that capitalise on aversive signals to motivate us to act in ways that are essential for our reproduction or survival,” researchers said.From that perspective, loneliness serves as the psychological counterpart of physical pain.”Physical pain is an aversive signal that alerts us of potential tissue damage and motivates us to take care of our physical body,” researchers said.Loneliness, meanwhile, is part of a warning system that motivates people to repair or replace their deficient social relationships. “Humans evolved to become such a powerful species, in large part due to mutual aid and protection and the changes in the brain that proved adaptive in social interactions,” John Cacioppo said. “When we don’t have mutual aid and protection, we are more likely to become focused on our own interests and welfare. That is, we become more self-centred,” he said.last_img read more
