Bahubali-themed Durga pandal recreates Mahismati Kingdom, stuns pandal hoppers!

first_imgThis year Sreebhumi Sporting club in Kolkata has decorated their pandal in the theme of Bahubali. The palace of Mahishmati, the ancient kingdom portrayed in the Bahubali series, has been recreated by the club.With Bahubali 2 being a bumper hit, the puja organisers hope their theme will attract large number of pandal hoppers. They say, Durga is a goddess of power and so there is a synergy between Durga Puja and the valorous Bahubali.Picture courtesy: Instagram/illmanneredamsel The pandal has a massive gate where an elephant stands atop pedestals with its trunk raised. Climbing up its head along the trunk will be Amarendra Bahubali, as seen in the sequel’s posters and the opening sequence. While the elephant will be in LED, the Bahubali figure will be of fibre.  Visitors will make their way through the feet of the elephant.Also Read: Here’s why the food served at Durga Puja pandals in Delhi is so not worth it Eight more Bahubali-themed light pillars will guide them to the pandal. Paul has chosen four scenes that he wants to portray -Sivagami raising new-born Mahendra above water as she floats along the mountain stream, Amarendra and Devsena practising archery side by side, Mahendra carrying the gigantic Sivalinga and Mahendra standing astride two on rushing bulls.Picture courtesy: Instagram/illmanneredamsel “This year we made our pandal based on Bahubali II Maheshmati Samrajya theme,” says Alokta Dutta, the organiser. “The theme is designed by Romeo of Kolkata, the idol is made by Pradip Rudra Paland the lighting is done by Chandannagar’s Babu Pal.”advertisementAlso Read: Sex-workers in Kolkata are being trained to work at food stalls for Durga Puja celebrations “The jewelleries are worth Rs. 10 crore,” she adds. “Senco Gold has sponsored the jewellery of the goddess this year.

Every coach has to find the right way to manage him. But I think that Pogba is showing at United that he is a top player.”When asked if he was surprised Pogba had been left out recently, Conte added: “I must be honest: my focus is only on Chelsea. I’m not interested on what happens with the other teams.”Pogba replaced Ander Herrera early on in United’s 0-0 draw in Seville, and Mourinho fears the midfielder could be out of action for a while due to a hamstring injury.He told reporters: “Ander is out, I don’t know the final diagnosis but I know he’s out for a few weeks, I don’t know how to say few, two, three, four, five or six.”United will be looking to strengthen their grip on second place in the Premier League table, with Conte’s side capable of moving ahead of them if they claim all three points at Old Trafford.last_img read more

Conte wants Chelsea ambition

first_imgChelsea Conte challenges Chelsea to match Manchester City’s ambition Dom Farrell 22:52 2/3/2018 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) AntonioConte - cropped Getty Images Chelsea Manchester City Antonio Conte Manchester City v Chelsea Premier League The Italian has urged the Blues to get out the chequebook as they look to rein in the Blues next season Antonio Conte once again hinted at dissatisfaction with Chelsea’s transfer policy ahead of Sunday’s trip to runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City.Pep Guardiola’s side are firmly on course to unseat Chelsea as champions, holding a 16-point advantage over Manchester United at the summit, with Conte’s men now embroiled in a scrap to finish in the top four.Speaking at a pre-match news conference, Conte’s inference when discussing the winning combination of a top coach and significant spending power at the Etihad Stadium was not subtle. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Williams case shows Solskjaer isn’t holding Man Utd’s youngsters back – he’s protecting them Goalkeeper crisis! Walker to the rescue but City sweating on Ederson injury ahead of Liverpool clash Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Asked whether his own club had the ambition to match City, the Italian turned the focus on the Stamford Bridge board.”I don’t know. This is not a question for me,” he said.”The club has to show the ambition, not the coach. The coach has to work every day very hard.”The club has to show the ambition.”Guardiola spent in excess of £200 million during the close season following a trophy-less initial campaign with City.Conte also spent heavily on the likes of Antonio Rudiger, Tiemoue Bakayoko and record signing Alvaro Morata but Chelsea recouped the majority of their outlay in sales.”I think from last season Manchester City was always a fantastic team but, after one season, the manager tried to improve the quality of the starting XI, to improve the quality in his squad,” Conte said, before jarringly identifying “a great feeling between the manager and the club” at City.”Sometimes it is very difficult to find a weakness in this team,” he continued.”I think that when you work very well, and there is a great feeling between the manager and the club, you can work in the way that you want and try to improve your club in the best way.Antonio Conte, Watford v Chelsea, 17/18“Manchester City has the possibility to spend a lot of money and when you link these two situations – a good manager and much money to spend in the transfer market – this is the overall result.”For sure, they will be better next season. They have the possibility to spend money to improve the quality of the starting XI and to improve the quality of the squad.”Three defeats in the past four Premier League matches leave Chelsea in fifth and, allied to his seemingly frosty attitude towards his employers, this state of affairs does not necessarily bode well for Conte seeing out his contract through until the end of next seasonNevertheless, the former Juventus boss again rejected suggestions he will return to his old post with the Italy national team, having been touted for the Azzurri role this week.”I think I have already answered on this question and nothing has changed compared to the past,” Conte added. “Especially my answer. That didn’t change.”last_img read more

How Messi became the world’s deadliest scorer

first_imgLionel Messi How Messi became the world’s deadliest goalscorer Ignasi Oliva Gispert Last updated 1 year ago 15:25 5/19/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(11) Lionel Messi Barcelona Getty/Goal Lionel Messi Barcelona Primera División Barcelona v Real Sociedad While the Argentine always looked likely to be a superstar, few could have predicted he would’ve scored quite as many goals across his career Lionel Messi has come a long way since the spring of 2005, when he hit the net for the first time in Barcelona colours.In the 14 years since making his debut for the Blaugrana the Argentine wizard has become, alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, perhaps the deadliest goalscorer the game of football has ever seen. Those present for the strike that opened his account against Albacete, this writer included, were aware that history was in the making. Messi had shown from his Juvenil A days in La Masia that he was marked for greatness.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks Goalkeeper crisis! Walker to the rescue but City sweating on Ederson injury ahead of Liverpool clash 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 But while it was easy to imagine that plenty of goals would follow in the future, nobody could have envisaged them coming by the hundreds, and records falling by the dozen.The bare statistics do not lie: he is the greatest scorer in both Barcelona and Spanish history. Messi has now smashed 383 goals in La Liga, more than Alfredo Di Stefano, Telmo Zarra or any of the other illustrious names that preceded him.While he has netted in almost every way possible, a pattern was nevertheless established right from the beginning; his first goal, and roughly eight of every 10 scored thereafter, came from his magic left foot. His partner-in-crime not just in the area but when needed to dance around (or through) defenders, or ping impossible passes to the feet of his grateful team-mates. The right foot, however, is far from useless. Messi has hit a total of 57 with his ‘weak’ limb, including goals in all but two of his professional seasons.Messi has even learned to use his head, albeit not quite as effectively as his great rival Ronaldo. After being forced to wait until 2008 for his first headed goal, Leo finally broke his duck in the summer of that year, when he also got his hands on the No.10 jersey, which was formerly the property of Ronaldinho. While the Argentine’s scoring record has always been impressive, the switch to No.10 coincided with a marked improvement in his ability in front of goal.The zenith of his powers came in 2012, when he smashed an incredible 50 strikes in a single La Liga season to blow Hugo Sanchez’s long-standing record of 38 out of the water. The following season saw him score 46 times in the league, now with an added weapon in his repertoire from set pieces. That watershed 2011-12 was the first in which Leo managed more than one goal from a free kick, and his potency standing over the ball has only increased in the years that have followed. The current season has featured no less than six free-kick goals, a new personal best for the Rosario native with one game remaining. Whatever happens on this final weekend of La Liga, when Messi and Barca welcome Real Sociedad to Camp Nou, a sixth Pichichi top scorer trophy is already assured for the Catalans’ ace marksman. As is the Golden Shoe, unless Lazio’s Ciro Immobile somehow outscores his rival by six in Serie A. Those individual awards simply prove once more what we all know by this point: while Messi was fated to become a superstar from the very start, few could have guessed he would also become the bane of goalkeepers across Spain and the world.last_img read more

Does Your Web Site Suck?

first_imgSometimes we learn more from what’s wrong, than from what’s right. That’s why Vince Flanders of Web Pages that Suck has been dissing businesses and nonprofit websites for years. Rightfully so if you check out his Biggest Mistakes in Web Design: 1995-2015, an article he recently revised when he realized that the Mistakes of 2004 (when he originally wrote it) were doomed to be repeated. Here are some of my favorites from Vince’s list that bear repeating:Believing that People Care About You and Your SiteNot that they don’t care, but as Vince points out, most visitors are really most interested in how you can help THEM.Nobody cares about you or your site. Really. What visitors care about is solving their problems. Most people visit a web site to solve one or more of these three problems.They want/need information.They want/need to make a purchase / donation.They want/need to be entertained.If your site doesn’t help them do one or more of these things quickly, then you’re done.Site Design That Gets in the Way of VisitorsIf you use design elements–Flash, too much or too little text, poor navigation, etc.–that get in the way of customers solving their problems (see Mistake Number 1 above), then you have a problem. Your goal is to have a site that makes it easy for visitors to find what they need and to accomplish what they came for. You don’t want them to have a hard time giving you a donation, do you?Site Lacks “Heroin Content”You can get away with a lot of design flaws if the CONTENT of your site is so compelling it keeps people coming back for more. That means content that changes frequently, that is powerful and engaging, and that provides people with information and/or entertainment. Vince has some great questions to ask yourself about content in this section that you shouldn’t miss.Misunderstanding GraphicsAnimated gifs, ugly background graphics, poor quality or inappropriate graphics–all make the list. A picture’s worth a thousand words, but not if it sucks.There’s a ton of great advice in this article that can help you plan for that site design or re-design.

Antonio Conte named new Inter Milan coach

first_img Reuters MilanMay 31, 2019UPDATED: May 31, 2019 13:18 IST Former Chlsea, Juventus coach Antonio Conte named new Inter Milan coach. (AP Photos)HIGHLIGHTSFormer Juventus, Chelsea and Italy coach Antonio Conte named new Inter Milan coachConte will replace Luciano Spalletti who parted company with the Chinese-owned clubInter Milan have been struggling since winning the Champions league in 2010Inter Milan handed the reins to former Juventus, Chelsea and Italy coach Antonio Conte on Friday, giving him the job of attempting to revive a side who have not won a major trophy for eight years.The fiery 49-year-old, famous for his dressing-room tirades, will replace Luciano Spalletti who parted company with the Chinese-owned club on Thursday, two years before the end of his contract, despite guiding them into next season’s Champions League.”A new chapter in my life is beginning, I’m really excited,” Conte said in a statement on Inter’s website. “I have chosen Inter because of the club it is, because of the project’s sound basis and how ambitious it is.”Inter have won 18 Serie A titles and the Coppa Italia seven times but have struggled since winning a Champions League, Serie A and Coppa Italia treble under Jose Mourinho in 2010.Their last major title was the Coppa Italia in 2011 and they missed out on the Champions League for six consecutive seasons before returning to the competition under Spalletti this season.Conte is their 11th coach in nine years since Mourinho departed and the club has also changed hands twice since then.China’s electronics retailer Suning Holdings Group bought a majority stake in the club in 2016 which previously changed hands in 2013 when Massimo Moratti, whose family controls Italian oil refiner Saras, sold the club to a consortium led by Indonesian business tycoon Erick Thohir.Inter will be hoping that Conte will have the same effect on them as he did on Juventus. The Turin side had finished seventh for the two previous seasons before Conte arrived in 2011 but then won three successive titles under him.advertisementHe went on to coach Italy and took them to the quarter-finals at Euro 2016, eliminating titleholders Spain and taking Germany to penalties despite complaining that he missed the day-to-day club routine.Conte used a combination of tactical nous and his renowned motivational powers to get the most from a team which was widely regarded as the weakest to have represented Italy in many years.Next stop was Chelsea where Conte won the English Premier League title in his first season and the FA Cup in his second, only to be sacked with one year left on his contract following disagreements with the management over transfer policy.Conte’s methods were vividly described in the autobiography of former Italy midfielder Andrea Pirlo, who played under him at Juventus.Pirlo said that Conte would throw bottles of fizzy mineral water against dressing-room walls in fits of rage and said that his rants “crash through the doors of your mind, often quite violently, and settle deep within you”.Inter president Steven Zhang descried Conte as “one of the best coaches out there”.”I’m certain that he’ll help us achieve our objective and fulfil our mission, one which has always remained the same: to make this club one of the best in the world again,” he said.Also Read | Copa America: Luis Suarez named in Uruguay’s squad despite injuryAlso Read | I wish to retire at Real Madrid: Sergio RamosAlso SeeFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Obstructionist forces wont succeed in JK

first_imgNew Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday that those trying to spread hate and obstruct development works in Kashmir will never succeed as he cited a recent government exercise to assert that power of development is stronger than the might of bullets and bombs.In his monthly ‘Mann ki baat’ broadcast, he said the “Back to village” programme held in June in Jammu and Kashmir saw enthusiastic participation of villagers everywhere, including in very sensitive and remote villages, as government officials reached there to discuss development schemes with locals. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details”It shows how keen people of Kashmir are to join the mainstream of development… Such programmes and people’s participation in them show that people of Kashmir want good governance. This also proves the dictum that the power of development is stronger than the might of bullets and bombs,” he said. “It is clear that those who wish to spread hatred en route to development, pose hurdles will never succeed in their sinister plans,” he added. For the first time, the prime minister said, senior officials, reached the doorsteps of villagers across 4,500 panchayats. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from ThursdayThese officials also reached villages on the border which live under the shadow of cross-border firing, he said, adding that they also visited sensitive villages in the districts of Shopian, Pulwama, Kulgam and Anantnag- districts which have seen the heightened militant activity of late, without any fear. Modi also noted that over 3 lakh pilgrims completed the Amarnath yatra since July 1 and said it has already outnumbered the number of devotees during 60 days in 2015. Hailing the hospitality of the people of the state, he said it will boost tourism. In the Chardham yatra in Uttarakhand too, large numbers of tourists have visited holy sites, he said, adding that over eight lakh devotees had visited Kedarnath shrine, a record number post the massive 2013 floods that had devastated the region. In his 25-minute address, Modi asked people to celebrate August 15 with special preparations and find out new ways to observe Independence Day with greater participation of masses. “You must ponder over the fact how 15th August could be celebrated as a folk-festival and also as a people’s festival,” he said.

Malaysia probes Naik over religious remarks

CAF Cup: Lekjaa Hits Back at Egyptian and Tunisian Allegations

Rabat – Fouzi Lekjaa, the president of both Morocco’s Royal Football Federation (FRMF) and Moroccan football club Nahdat Berkane (commonly known as RS Berkane), has said that his club would withdraw from the African Confederation Cup if proven guilty of the allegations leveled against it. Fouzi’s statements are a direct response to strident warnings from Mortada Mansour, the president of Egypt’s Al Zamalek sports club.Mansour recently accused RS Berkane of “unfair” treatment of opponents. Mansour claimed an RS Berkane executive “deliberately sounded the alarm of a hotel on the eve of an important game to psychologically affect players of a rival team.” The president of the Egyptian football club president was referring to an incident that occurred on the day of the CAF Confederation Cup semi-final game in Morocco between RS Berkane and Tunisian club CS Sfaxien.At 5 a.m of match day, the alarm of the Be Live hotel in Saidia where the Tunisian club was staying went off. Mansour claims that Moroccans intentionally sounded the alarm to perturb the Tunisian team.Mansour said on Friday, May 10, that his club must be properly treated in order for Egyptians to reciprocate with their Moroccan guestsResponding to the allegations in an interview with Moroccan news outlet Achkayen, Lekjaa challenged Mansour to provide proof for his accusations. The Moroccan said that his team would withdraw from the competition and surrender its finalist spot to CS Sfaxien if it was proven that someone from both the club and supporters triggered the alarm.Read also: WAC to Face Esperance de Tunis at the African Champions League FinalsLekjaa also said that the withdrawal would also be applied if there was ambiguity on the goals scored by RSB against CS Sfaxien.According to the hotel report on the incident, Lekjaa stated that the alarm has been triggered due to hookah smoke.Lekjaa also spoke about the refereeing mistakes that led to the qualification of Al Zamalek. During the quarter-final match between Moroccan club Hassania of Agadir (HUSA) and Al Zamalek, the referee refused a valid HUSA goal that would have upended the outcome of the match. “If someone wants to give us lessons, they should not accept the refereeing mistakes because of which they were qualified,” asserted the FRMF president.“Practicing psychological pressures on rivals is part of football, but the ways to pressure have changed. So the president of Al Zamalek club has to change his methods,” added Lekjaa.  Read also: Morocco’s FRMF to Adopt Video Assistant Referee Next SeasonMansour retractsTwo days after his trenchant statements about RS Berkane’s “unfair play,” however, Mansour played down his criticism, saying that he was only quoting the Tunisian media. In his latest radio interview on the topic, Mansour withdrew his comments, telling Moroccan broadcaster Radio Mars that his point had been to highlight that sporting disagreement should not affect the “friendly relations” between Egypt and Morocco.“I obtained all the information from Tunisian media. I was talking to Fouzi Lekjaa, a brother dear to me because I don’t want to affect the Egyptian-Moroccan relations because of a match,” Mansour explained. read more

UN Standing Police Capacity completes first field mission

The first officers from the SPC arrived in N’Djamena, the Chadian capital, last November to carry out the recruitment and training for the specialized unit, which has been set up with the help of the UN Mission to the Central African Republic and Chad (known as MINURCAT).The last two members of the SPC involved in the Chadian project left N’Djamena on Friday after the training was completed so that the local police officers are now able to take over security duties in the many camps for refugees and IDPs in eastern Chad. Most of the refugees have fled conflict in the neighbouring Darfur region of Sudan.The SPC was set up in 2006 after an earlier report commissioned by the then Secretary-General called for a small corps of senior police officers and managers who could undertake mission assessments and organize the start-up of police components of peace operations.It is tasked with providing immediate start-up capability on the ground, such as it has done in Chad, and with providing rapid support, advice and assistance to the police component of existing UN peace operations.Meanwhile, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) last week organized two civil-military coordination workshops in Chad to improve the delivery of humanitarian aid and the protection of civilians. The workshops were held in the eastern towns of Goz Beida and Hadjer Hadid. 18 August 2008The United Nations Standing Police Capacity (SPC) has wrapped up its first start-up mission, training recruits for a specialized police unit in Chad that will be responsible for protecting some 300,000 refugees and internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the east of the strife-torn country. read more

Burundis rival ethnic groups learn to live side by side in UNbacked

3 October 2008Displaced people from Burundi’s rival Hutu and Tutsi groups are being resettled side by side under a pilot project funded by the United Nations refugee agency aimed at seeking reconciliation and binding up the wounds of decades of bloody ethnic violence in the small central African country. “The returnees and the displaced were, very much from the beginning, willing to live together,” said Tony Garcia Carranza, head of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) office in the eastern provincial capital of Ruyigi, near the new village of Muriza. “We do not see any friction between both groups – it is really a non-issue.”Conflict between the two groups since the early 1960s is estimated to have left more than a million dead and forced hundreds of thousands more to flee their homes in Burundi and its northern neighbour, Rwanda.Now UNHCR is creating Muriza as a village for 98 Burundian families, where members from both ethnic groups who sought shelter elsewhere in Burundi or in neighbouring countries, can rub shoulders in peace. The first families have moved into new mud-brick homes and the agency has distributed half-acre plots to landless refugee returnees.“The new village is a potent example of how the scars of the past can be healed in Burundi and how reconciliation can be promoted. Hutus live next door to Tutsis, while former refugees and internally displaced people (IDPs) share schools and hospitals with locals,” UNHCR said in a news release.Two women, both in their 40s, are emblematic of the pilot project. A few years ago, Zita and Eusébie might have regarded each other as mortal enemies, but today they are learning to live together and liking it. Zita is a Tutsi, and Eusébie a Hutu. Both were uprooted from their homes, and both are widows with many children to feed, and few resources to do so.“When you build more of these villages, it will be a good idea to integrate people from both ethnic groups,” said Eusébie, who shares hew new house with her eight children and three orphans whom she brought back with her from Nduta refugee camp in north-western Tanzania. She still has painful memories of fleeing home with her children and was not sure whether it was safe enough to return to Burundi.But, she added: “Things are going very well between both ethnic groups. And I do not speak only for me, but for all returnees.”Zita recalled her flight in 1993, when her old village was attacked and all the Tutsis killed. “It was only me and my family who survived and could flee. I will never forget what happened that day,” she said. The two colourfully dressed women sat side by side on a small wooden bench, looking at the houses being built on a nearby hilltop and talking about their pasts and their common future.UNHCR thinks Muriza can be a model for other villages, providing homes and land for returning refugees and IDPs and helping to bring together Tutsis and Hutus. In cooperation with the Government and other partners, it is examining the possibility of expanding the project.Eusébie and Zita are clearly supporters. “When you build more of these villages, it will be a good idea to integrate people from both ethnic groups,” Eusébie said. “Those who were afraid of each other before will get used to each other.”Since UNHCR started its voluntary repatriation operation in 2002, more than 450,000 refugees have returned to Burundi from Tanzania and other countries. Most IDPs have also gone home. read more

UN advocate for the rights of displaced persons visits Côte dIvoire

With up to a million and a half people displaced by civil war and conflicts over land and ethnicity in Côte d’Ivoire, a top United Nation is official is visiting the country to investigate their plight and advocate for their rights, the UN operation there (UNOCI) said today. Walter Kälin, Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Representative on the Human Rights of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), will meet members of the Government of Côte d’Ivoire, organizations representing displaced persons, and national and international bodies concerned with their protection.During his mission, which runs through April, Mr. Kalin will visit Abidjan, the commercial centre, Yamoussoukro, the capital, as well as the cities of Daloa and Bouaké and the western towns of Duékoué, Guiglo, Toulépleu, San-Pedro and Tabou.According to UNOCI, an estimated 800,000 to 1.5 million persons have been displaced in Côte d’Ivoire, seeking refuge mainly in urban and semi-urban areas, with nearly half a million of them displaced persons, mostly women and children, living in precarious conditions in Abidjan, the commercial centre.Côte d’Ivoire has been divided between north and south since an aborted coup against President Laurent Gbagbo in September 2002 triggered a civil war that ended with a peace agreement in January 2003. read more

Acting UN envoy to Ethiopia and Eritrea delivers Annans latest report to

“Azouz Ennifar, the acting Special Representative dealing with the UN Mission in Ethiopia and Eritrea (UNMEE) briefed the Council on the Secretary-General’s latest report…[while] the Council earlier met with troop contributing countries for that Mission,” UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters in New York.Mr. Annan’s latest report, which was released yesterday, covers the activities of UNMEE since March and ahead of its current end of mandate on 30 September. In it, he also highlighted the increased instability across the whole of the Horn of Africa region.“Four years after the 2002 decision of the Eritrea-Ethiopia Boundary Commission, I remain deeply concerned about the stalemate in the Ethiopia-Eritrea peace process,” the report said.“This is an untenable situation, which, if allowed to fester, could lead intentionally or unintentionally to events with disastrous consequences for the two countries and the whole region.”“The situation in the Horn of Africa remains politically tense and fragile. The continuing conflict in Somalia and the unresolved crisis affecting Darfur contribute to the instability affecting the region. Having the foregoing facts in mind, I recommend to the Security Council that it extend the mandate of UNMEE for six months, until 31 March 2007.”Mr. Annan also said the various arrests, detentions and expulsions of UNMEE international and locally recruited staff in recent months was “particularly troubling” and he repeated calls for all restrictions on the Mission to be lifted and those staff detained to be released without delay.In a related development, UNMEE has called on Eritrea’s authorities to cooperate with the Mission in investigating the arrest and detention last month of a staff member for “allegedly trying to smuggle Eritrean nationals out of the country,” along with new allegations against other personnel.“The Mission has not been formally notified by the competent Eritrean authorities of the case or presented with any evidence thereon… To date, UNMEE has not been granted access to the staff member or received formal communication with specific information,” it said in a statement issued yesterday.“UNMEE will continue to constructively cooperate with the Eritrean authorities to investigate the occurrence of any alleged wrongdoing by UNMEE officials and, at the same time, take all necessary steps to ensure that they respect the laws and regulations of the host country.”UNMEE monitors the ceasefire along the disputed border over which the two countries fought a war from 1998 to 2000, but its work has been hampered by both sides, in particular by Ethiopia’s refusal to accept the border set by the Boundary Commission and restrictions imposed by Eritrea. read more

Massive and protracted humanitarian crisis in DR Congo can be beaten back

“We can beat back the massive and protracted humanitarian crisis. But we urgently need donors to provide further generous funding as needs continue to outpace resources,” said Mr. Lowcock, adding that the DRC needs sustained international engagement to create the conditions for peace, security and long-term development.While the country has made progress in recent years in some areas, including a drop in the number of children dying before they reach the age of five, the overall humanitarian situation remains alarming. Around 13 million went hungry last year, compared with 7.7 million in 2017. At least 4 million children are malnourished, while cholera, measles and Ebola “continue to blight many lives”.“Severe acute malnutrition is expected to hit 1.4 million children under the age of five this year and put them at imminent risk of death,” said Ms. Fore. “In conflict-affected areas of the country, children and young people have been recruited as fighters, sexually assaulted and denied education, health and protection services. Together, the international community and the new government can – and should – do better for children.” Constructive talksIn Kinshasa, the two officials held constructive talks with newly-elected President Félix Tshisekedi who reiterated the Government’s commitment to leading the humanitarian response across the country.In Goma, in the eastern province of North Kivu, they visited a centre delivering care and assistance to women, including survivors of sexual and gender-based violence. They also met rape survivors who were receiving medical, psychosocial and legal assistance, with support from UNICEF and partners.In Bunia, Ituri province, the pair visited a site for those internally-displaced, where they met mother-of-four, Janette Dusi Lasi, who was wounded and lost her husband when their village was attacked.’Work with local people’ to beat EbolaMs. Fore also traveled to Beni and Butembo where she visited Ebola treatment facilities, as the outbreak continues, with concerns that the fight against the disease is stalled, due to recent attacks on medical facilities. She then went to day care centres where Ebola survivors, now immune to the virus, look after small children whose mothers are undergoing treatment and who themselves are at risk of developing the disease. Children account for one third of all Ebola cases – more than in any previous outbreak. Over 1,000 children have been separated from their parents or have been orphaned due to Ebola. The two officials agreed that successful elimination of the current Ebola outbreak required above all greater and more effective community engagement.  “Only if local people are fully involved and consulted can the outbreak be defeated,” said Mr. Lowcock. “That means engaging them actively in the response, as well as doing better to meet their wider needs, on the basis of priorities local people themselves express. Insecurity and the activities of armed groups are a real problem – but what is needed above all is to listen to and work with local people.” Following on from a fact-finding mission to DRC this week, UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore and the UN’s top Humanitarian Affairs official (OCHA), Mark Lowcock, said the funds were urgently needed to meet the needs of children, families and vulnerable communities, including people with disabilities.“The relatively peaceful political transition taking place in the Democratic Republic of the Congo is an opportunity that we must seize on,” the top officials said in a statement, referring to the first peaceful transfer of power following elections on 30 December. read more

Best Female Chef award is sexist chefs say as they complain this

“We never think of it like that. We never think ‘there’s loads of men in this profession’.”Chefs from across the world have agreed with Ms Lacey’s appraisal of the prize. In response to a tweet asking “I am sitting here wondering who will be the first to Tweet that there shouldn’t be a world’s best female chef award”, Michelin starred Scottish chef Andrew Fairlie posted “Probably most female chefs.”Aditi Dugar and Prateek Sadhu of Masque in Mumbai, which has won the award for best restaurant in India multiple times, told The Telegraph: “Cooking is based on skill, and not physical strength. This category is unnecessary.”San Francisco based chef Dominique Crenn, who won the award in 2016, also criticised the prize in an interview on Tuesday, telling the Washington Post: “If you give a chef a female award, you’re going to alienate that gender to the other gender.“We are not a sport. They’re treating us as if we are a sport.” Pip Lacey is due to open her own restaurant this summer The World’s Best Female Chef Award has been running since 2011 and has in the past been won mainly by chefs from mainland Europe. It was started by the prestigious World’s 50 Best Restaurants award body which spawned from a trade magazine in 2002.  “They come home, probably somebody even cooks for them and has time to chat to them. Do you think that happens to a woman? You can never compare these two different worlds,” she told Bloomberg.  The chef added that although “any award is nice to win”, treating female chefs as a curiosity is “going backwards a bit.”She said: “It’s like we weren’t considered in the years before. Now it seems to be going backwards. Every female young chef is being asked about females in the kitchen and it’s getting boring.  US celebrity cook Anthony Bourdain was one of the first to criticise the award, tweeting in 2013: “Why—at this point in history—do we need a “Best Female Chef” special designation? As if they are curiosities?”This is the first year that a British chef has won the award. Speaking to Bloomberg, Smyth defended the prize. Commenting that women are under-represented on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list she said: “There is no right and wrong way to address this but things won’t change if we do nothing.”When we see women represented in numbers in lists like these, then we will have changed the industry for the better and these awards will no longer be needed.”The Notting Hill restaurateur also said that has discussed the male-dominated Best Restaurants list with the organisers since winning.This year’s Best Restaurants list will be announced on June 19th in Bilbao. Slovenian chef Ana Ros also spoke out in support of the award when she was announced as last year’s winner. “It is very clear that for a woman in a male world, it’s always going to be difficult. “The best chefs in this world—look at Massimo Bottura, look at Rene Redzepi—they have great wives. They are 100 percent on their work because it’s taken care of, their children, it’s taken care of their private life.  Pip Lacey is due to open her own restaurant this summer Just an annual reminder having a best female chef award is dumb please don’t do it— kludt (@kludt) April 25, 2018 A female chef of the year award is sexist, chefs have complained, as they said that cooking “is not like sport”.The World’s Best Female Chef accolade, which was won this year by British chef Clare Smyth, is awarded by The World’s Best 50 Restaurants, but there is no equivalent prize given out to male chefs. Pip Lacey, former head chef at Michelin-starred Mayfair restaurant Murano, described the women-only award as “odd”, adding that unlike in sport there is no reason female chefs can’t compete on an equal playing field with the opposite sex.Ms Lacey, who is opening her own restaurant in central London this summer, told The Telegraph: “I don’t get why we have to segregate the award – it’s a bit odd.”I don’t see why you can’t compete with men, why there’s not just one category. “It’s not like how in sport you are competing at a different physical level, I don’t think cooking is like that.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Masters World Cup 2017 with homage to the first Olympic winners –

The first Masters Handball World Cup 2017 in Omis (Croatia) which will be held between April 28 and May 1, 2017. For now, teams from seven countries applied for the biggest event for veterans in 2017, but still there is enough time to join.Tournament in beautiful atmosphere of Adriatic Sea will have a special dimension of paying tribute to the people who gave a lot to our sport. In this case, the hall in Omis will be renamed during the tournament in “VLADO STENZEL court”, as a way of homage to the coach – the first Olympic winner from 1972 in Munchen.Legendary 84-years old Stenzel lives in Germany and still is active. He was a real handball king of 70’s as Olympic winner with Yugoslavia and World’s champion with Germany in 1978. That’s why he got a nickname “magician”. We don’t give enough respect to the people who were making our sport. Handball kids know nothing or almost nothing about a real handball legends in comparation with the new generations in some other sports, who are forcing their best players and coaches, writing books and recording films about them, sharing their quotes, etc. Vlado Stenzel is one of the first global handball stars. He won Olympic gold with Yugoslavia, the first ever in “small handball”, then took world’s crown with Germany, the first for the biggest handball country. He was definitely the handball icon of 70’s. Our idea that hall in Omis get his name during Masters Handball World Cup 2017, has symbolic meaning and the way to remind on his handball work, but also a kind of provocation to start thinking diferrently about our legacy – said Zika Bogdanovic, editor of Handball-Planet.com, one of the organizers of MHWC 2017.You can still apply for Masters Handball World Cup 2017!
