first_imgMumbai, Jun 5 (PTI) Boosted by the availability of star striker Sunil Chhetri after his timely recovery from a hamstring injury, hosts India go into the football friendly against lower-ranked Nepal here tomorrow with their confidence high and as the favourites.The international friendly is to be played at the Football Arena in Andheri Sports Complex where Indias dramatic ascension to no. 100 in the FIFA rankings commenced last September with a 4-0 rout of Puerto Rico.The Indian squad has been sweating it out at the same venue for three weeks now with only the players from Bengaluru FC and Mohun Bagan missing for the major part due to their club commitments.With them joining the camp a few days ahead of the friendly against Nepal, which is being used as the tune-up for Indias vital AFC Asian Cup Group A qualifier against Kyrgyzstan next week, national head coach Stephen Constantine would be keen to put his best team on the park and make them jell again as a combination.The players had dispersed to fulfil their respective club commitments after notching up a memorable 1-0 win over Myanmar in the AFC Asian Cup group opener in March end and the main aim will be to reunite in a proper way for the June 13 game against Kyrgyzstan at Bengaluru.”The mood in the team is great. We are all excited to be representing the country again after the long season. The Nepal game is important so that we are set up before the game against Kyrgyzstan,” key midfielder Eugeneson Lyngdoh told reporters on Saturday.advertisement”Its the right preparation (for the game against Kyrgyzstan at Bengaluru) as playing against any team will help us to jell as a team. We are coming back after so many months and its important to get our system right before playing against Kyrgyzstan,” Lyngdoh added.The team will obviously miss the services of winger Udanta Singh, who has picked up a serious hamstring injury and is out of this game as well as the more important one against the Kyrgyz Republic.It was Udanta who had laid the perfect pass for Chhetri to bulge the net in the dying moments of the game against Myanmar in Yangoon on March 28.Coming to the India-Nepal football rivalry, the hosts have not lost to their north-eastern neighbours for 18 years, their last defeat – a 0-4 rout – happening in the 1999 SAF Games.After that reversal, the two South Asian neighbours have met on nine occasions and India has come out trumps on all but two of these encounters which were goalless draws.Their last contest was in the South Asian Football Federation championship in December 2015 and India had emerged 4-1 victors.

first_imgBorussia Dortmund star Mario Gotze has played down reports linking him to a move to Arsenal, as he looks forward to renewing his contract with his boyhood club. Gotze, 27, has been tipped for stardom since his teens and at just 22 scored the winning goal to crown Germany 2014 World Cup champions ahead of final opponents Argentina. Since then, however, he has struggled to follow through on that potential, cutting short a three-year stay at Bayern Munich in 2016 in favour of returning to his old club after failing to establish himself at the Allianz Arena.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club?

first_imgJerusalem: Israel began voting in its second election in five months Tuesday that will decide whether to extend Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s term as the country’s longest-serving prime minister despite corruption allegations against him. Polls opened at 7:00 am (0400 GMT) and were due to close in most areas at 10:00 pm. At one Jerusalem polling station, a trickle of voters arrived to cast ballots just after opening time. The stakes could not be much higher for the 69-year-old right-wing leader who, as in April polls, faces a strong challenge from ex-military chief Benny Gantz and his centrist Blue and White alliance. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from US Ex-defence minister Avigdor Lieberman, Netanyahu’s former right-hand man turned rival, could play a kingmaker role with his campaign to “make Israel normal again.” Some 6.4 million people are eligible to cast ballots. The first exit surveys will be released just after polls close, while official results are not expected until Wednesday. Opinion polls have indicated another tight race, showing Netanyahu’s Likud and Blue and White winning around 32 seats each in the 120-seat parliament. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential polls Both Netanyahu and Gantz paid a last-minute visit Monday night to Jerusalem’s Western Wall, the holiest site where Jews are allowed to pray. Netanyahu enters the election after having suffered one of the biggest defeats of his political career following the April vote. His Likud along with its right-wing and religious allies won a majority of seats, leading Israeli President Reuven Rivlin to task the premier with forming a new government. But following weeks of discussions, Netanyahu failed, leading him to opt for an unprecedented second election rather than risk having Rivlin choose someone else. The danger for Netanyahu extends beyond remaining prime minister, a post he has held for a total of more than 13 years. If he wins, many believe he will seek to have parliament grant him immunity from prosecution while facing the possibility of a corruption indictment in the weeks ahead. Israel’s attorney general has said he intends to indict Netanyahu for fraud, bribery and breach of trust pending a hearing expected only days after the election in early October. A final decision would come later. Netanyahu would not be required to step down if indicted, only if convicted with all appeals exhausted. Recognising the stakes, Netanyahu spent the final days of the campaign seeking to appeal to right-wing nationalists — key to his re-election bid — and to boost turnout among his base. Those efforts have included a controversial pledge to annex the Jordan Valley in the occupied West Bank, a third of the territory. He has issued unfounded warnings that the vote could be stolen by fraud in Arab communities, leading critics to accuse him of racism. But Netanyahu has also highlighted the country’s growing economy and his relationships with world leaders such as US President Donald Trump. He has tried to label his main opponents “weak” and “leftist” despite their security credentials. “This is the choice that is open to you: their left-wing government or a strong right-wing government led by me,” he said Monday. Gantz has campaigned by presenting himself as an honourable alternative. He has repeatedly spoken of Netanyahu’s willingness to form a coalition with far-right parties that could help him seek immunity. Gantz says his alliance, which includes three former military chiefs of staff, wants a unity government that the vast majority of Israelis would support.last_img read more

first_imgInFocusThe raising of Nazi and Confederate flags in a yard in small town Saskatchewan raised  the ire of a First Nations man who drove to the town to take them down and burn them live on social media last weekend.While more than 30,000 people have viewed the video that inspired a hashtag in support of the flag-burner, it also re-ignited racial tensions in a province that sees flare-ups too often.“Its always been there, its always below the surface,” said Coun. Fabian Ironeagle of the Pasqua First Nation, surrounded by Saskatchewan’s grain belt.“Everything we do, where ever we go, there are certain situations we’re put in as a First Nations person where you can actually feel it sometimes, where people don’t like you.”(The Nazi flag flying in Saskatchewan)Eleanore Sunchild is a Cree lawyer from Thunderchild First Nation in the central part of the province.She said traveling elsewhere in Canada feels much different than living as a First Nations person in her home province.Just three years ago, Colten Boushie, a young Cree man, was shot dead by a farmer for trespassing on his property near Biggar.The farmer, Gerald Stanley, walked free.“There are parts of Saskatchewan where you don’t go,” Sunchild said. “And a lot of those areas are the rural areas, just because its not safe, especially in the wake of what happened to Colten.“It gave people a permission to be more open with their racism,  and they are, as you by this display of the Nazi flag.”Kamao Cappo of the Muscowpetung Saulteaux Nation agrees the racial tensions are more openly displayed“(After Stanley’s acquittal) it become more obvious and people feel they have more permission to do what they like,” said Cappo, who filmed himself being thrown out  of a Canadian Tire store in Regina in 2017, after being racially profiled as a thief. He was in the store buying a chainsaw.Sunchild said there are allies in the province but they’re too few and too quiet.“Maybe they feel ‘it’s not my fight’ so I’ll stay silent but how will it change if we’re all silent,” Sunchild said.Meanwhile the flag burner, Caleb Pelletier, 21, told APTN InFocus he stands by his decision to take action when the town and the police, refused to.“I’d rather stand up than shut up,” Pelletier said.infocus@aptn.calast_img read more

OTTAWA — A mandatory review of the country’s largest seniors benefit program is predicting all-time highs in spending over the coming years with waves of baby boomer retirements — spending levels that could have been even higher if not for changes to the public pension program.The report is the first glimpse into how the CPP expansion, phased in over the next 40 years, will affect old age security.The country’s chief actuary writes in his report that program spending is projected to hit about $247 billion by 2060, an almost five-fold increase from planned spending this year, as more Canadians hit retirement and live longer, meaning more beneficiaries drawing payments for longer periods of time.The projected increase is expected to be cushioned by ongoing economic growth.Over the same projection period, Canada Pension Plan benefits will increase.The extra money to be doled out through CPP, funded by an increase in employee and employer premiums, is expected to reduce the number of low-income seniors — meaning $3 billion less in spending on the guaranteed income supplement in 2060 — and reduce overall spending on old age security benefits, which are scaled back as incomes rise.Paul Kershaw, an associate professor in the school of population and public health at the University of British Columbia, said the report shows that the country is expecting younger adults to rely less on old age security down the road by paying more into CPP, while simultaneously asking them to pay for increases in spending for today’s aging population, noting they are often parents and grandparents.“Younger generations will (hopefully) gladly do this. But they will be much happier doing so if their aging parents and grandparents contribute to an honest conversation about the fact that today’s aging population didn’t prepay for OAS like they did for their CPP, and that this is having substantial implications for the public resources that are available to spend on all age groups — including their kids and grandchildren,” Kershaw, the founder of the group “Generation Squeeze,” which seeks to engage young people in politics, said an email.The most recent census figures showed the ranks of seniors grew by the fastest rate in 70 years, with Statistics Canada projecting there could be 12 million seniors by 2061. Declining birth rates mean that without increases in immigration levels, there will be fewer younger workers to replace coming waves of retirees.The previous Conservative government raised the age of eligibility for old age security by two years to 67 from 65 to save on costs and prod people to work longer. The Liberals reversed the decision in their first budget, but have stuck by the need to keep older Canadians in the workforce longer.A spokesman for Social Development Minister Jean-Yves Duclos said the Liberals knew reversing the age of eligibility back to 65 would have an impact on program cost, but noted that the parliamentary budget watchdog has reported that spending is sustainable in the long-term.“Without the changes proposed in Budget 2016, the most vulnerable Canadian seniors would have lost up to $13,000 per year,” Mathieu Filion said.“We think that it was the best decision to take for our seniors.”A February presentation to a group of deputy ministers said that if the retirement age stays fixed at 65, and life expectancy increases, there will be relatively more people claiming pension benefits for longer, and fewer people working and paying income taxes.“Younger generations may be required to pay higher taxes to compensate for higher spending commitments and lower tax revenue,” one slide reads.“This could create disincentives to work and for firms to invest, and in turn lead to a fall in growth and productivity.” read more

This is about respect for people.”It comes after a spate of incidents in recent weeks in which candidates campaigning in the European Elections have been targeted by protestors throwing milkshakes.Earlier this week a 32-year-old man from Newcastle was charged with common assault and criminal damage after throwing a salted caramel milkshake over Brexit Party leader, Nigel Farage, as he campaigned in the city.A spokesman for Hampshire Constabulary said: “We received a report at 10.06am from a third party about an assault on a man in his 80s at North Lane, Aldershot.“We are investigating the incident and are trying to make contact with the victim.” Mr MacNaughton, 81, said that although there were few people around at the time of the attack locals had been quick to offer their support, including a Labour councillor for the area who described it as “outrageous”.He added: “It was a shallow, silly thing to do. I think he was copying that fella who threw milkshake over Nigel Farage. It’s appallingly un-British and it just shouldn’t happen.”The old soldier, who has also published two novels on a military theme – They Stood in the Door and They Stayed a Soldier – said he supported the Brexit Party because of his fears over the prospect of ever-closer European union, particularly the possible creation of a European army, and the EU’s lack of financial transparency. A retired army veteran and Brexit Party supporter refused to abandon his post outside a polling station after he was attacked with a milkshake.Don MacNaughton, 81, who served with the Paras for 22-years was covered in the strawberry drink by a “yob” who spotted his Brexit Party rosette.But the former soldier, who served in hot-spots all around the world, laughed off the attack saying strawberry was his favourite flavour.Widower, Mr MacNaughton, who had been campaigning for Nigel Farage’s party in his hometown of Aldershot, also refused to go home and change his soiled clothing following the incident on Thursday morning.He told the Telegraph: “I’m not going anywhere and I’m not going to change out of these clothes, even though lots of people have offered me clean shirts. These are my war wounds and I’m keeping them on. And I’ll be here till the polling station shuts. It’s my duty.”“It was a strawberry milkshake, my favourite flavour,” he said, adding that he would not be pressing charges should the thug who targeted him be caught. “The police took a statement and searched the bins to find the milkshake carton, they did a grand job. It’s an assault, but I won’t be taking it further. His punishment is to have his silly actions plastered all over the place by the media.” Mr MacNaughton, who joined the Parachute Regiment in 1960 and went on to serve in Cyprus, Berlin and Northern Ireland during the worst years of  the Troubles, as well as being a member of the Red Devils display team, described how the assailant struck shortly after the polling station opened at 7am.

US Congressman apologises for not consulting Indian Americans on

first_imgWashington: In an unprecedented move, a US Congressman has apologised to Indian Americans for not consulting them before writing a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to express his concerns on human rights situation in Kashmir after India scrapped the special status of Jammu and Kashmir. Congressman Tom Suozzi in a letter to Pompeo on August 9 said that the the action by the Indian government in Kashmir “risks provoking mass social unrest…” Also Read – Watch: Donald Trump says Florida faces absolute monster hurricane Advertise With Us “These new restrictions on the autonomy of the state and the rights of Kashmiris could also embolden extremists and terrorists to act,” Suozzi said in his letter after India scrapped Article 370 of the Constitution that gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcated the state into two Union Territories. Agitated over the letter, several Indian Americans, who constitute a significant part of Suozzi’s Congressional District in New York and had played a key role in his election and fund raising, flooded the office of the Congressman with angry messages. Also Read – Pakistan test-fires 290-km range missile Advertise With Us Suozzi called an emergency meeting of Indian Americans, which was attended by more than 100 Indian community members, who demanded the lawmaker to withdraw his letter. Suozzi in a statement said, “On Sunday, I met with 100 of my Indian-American constituents regarding my recent letter to Secretary Pompeo expressing my concerns about recent developments in Kashmir.” Advertise With Us “Based upon my meeting it is clear that it was a mistake to not consult with some of my Indian-American friends and supporters before I sent the letter. I should have. I am sorry. If I had met with them before sending the letter, I would have framed my concerns differently, Suozzi said. He said that throughout his career in public service, he has been an ardent supporter of India, their sovereignty, and have always stood with them in their fight against terrorism. The US-India relationship will be one of the most important over the next 50 years and beyond, he said, adding that he has spent his time in Congress promoting and elevating this relationship and will continue to do so. “India, the world’s largest democracy, remains critical for regional security and peace. The current situation in Kashmir presents some very serious challenges. The US should seek to be helpful in securing safety and peace for all people, Suozzi said. Moving forward, I will make sure to solicit the input of all of my constituents who have a vested interest in Kashmir and work towards a peaceful region that roots out terrorism and corruption as well as respects human rights. It is my hope, that recent developments in the region will eventually lead to this,” Suozzi said. Indian Americans said this was a statement in the right direction, and sought a follow up letter from him to Pompeo. It is a statement in the right direction, said Jagdish Sewhani, the President of the American India Public Affairs Committee. If any letter is requited, Congressman Suozzi needs to write to Secretary Pompeo about the nefarious actions of Pakistan and asking to take decisive and irreversible action against terrorist organisations, Sewhani said.last_img read more
