first_imgMohun Bagan were held 1-1 by newbiew Indian Arrows in a historic match at the Maidan ground in Kolkata in their I-League fixture on Friday.Mohun Bagan played their first-ever I-League fixture in their own club ground after they were being forced to play at the Barasat Stadium owing to the unavailibity of the Salt Lake Stadium due to ISL.Aser Pierrick Dipanda Dicka scored off a penalty in the 27th minute only for Rahul KP to equalise for the Arrows just six minutes later.Arrows captain Amarjit Singh Kiyam was sent off as early as the 65th minute of the match but Mohun Bagan failed to make anything out of the numerical advantage they had.Eze Kingsley made his comeback from a one-game suspension as Rana Gharami, who won the ‘Hero of the Match’ award in the goalless draw with NEROCA, was relegated to the bench. Sony Norde could only sit in the director’s box owing to his prolonged injury as Nikhil Kadam got another start of the season.ALSO WATCHFor the Indian Arrows, overjoyed with their 3-0 win over Shillong Lajong, Luis Norton de Matos made two changes to his lineup. After his wondrous goal, Nongdamba Naorem forced his way into the first eleven. Rahul KP replaced Abhijit Sarkar on the flank with local boy Rahim Ali leading the line.Right after the historic kickoff on the iconic Maidan ground, it was actually the youngsters who pressed hard despite the stiff resistance and the poor ground conditions. The hosts had two chances in the first twenty minutes which Ansumana Kromah failed to convert, the latter which he missed inside the box with only the keeper to beat.advertisementHowever, the deadlock was broken by the Green and Maroon, only through a spot-kick. Nikhil Kadam was brought down by Ashish Rai inside the box in the 25th minute and Aser Pierrick Dipanda converted duly.But, that was ruled out as a Mohun Bagan player had entered the box prematurely. The Cameroonian made no mistake on the second chance as the crowd was sent into a tizzy.While Amarjit Singh Kiyam and Jeakson Singh made life tough from the centre of the park, Mohun Bagan looked out of shape and were not able to exert themselves on the teenagers.Past the half-hour mark, Sanjeev Stalin released Rahim Ali on the left flank as the West Bengal-based forward beat Kinshuk Debnath for pace and Rahul Kannoly Praveen, who had changed flanks by then rushed in between the towering Eze Kingsley and Ricky Lallawmamwma to tap in home.Sanjoy Sen held his cards close to his chests as he made no further changes despite his players failing to impress. Dheeraj Singh Moirangthem had to make a double save in the dying moments of the first half as the Arrows held on.As Nongdamba Naorem was stretchered off owing to an injury, Ninthoinganba Meetei was brought on and skipper Amarjit Singh Kiyam was given his marching orders for two yellow cards within fifteen minutes.Mohun Bagan looked listless and could not go anywhere near the opposition box to put them in danger. Second half substitute Manandeep Singh’s freak bicycle kick outside the box landed his studs on young Asish Rai and the fullback had to be taken off to the hospital as the Indian Arrows bench feared a concussion.last_img read more

A statement issued by a spokesman for Mr. Annan in New York described the ratification as “a momentous occasion in the history of the Convention.””Canada has also been highly prominent in the development of the law of the sea, both at the Third UN Conference and as a key promoter of the UN Fish Stocks Agreement,” spokesman Stephane Dujarric said.Mr. Dujarric said Canada has special interests in maritime trade, fisheries and protection of the marine environment.The Convention on the Law of the Sea entered into force on 16 November 1994. It governs all aspects of ocean space, from delimitation of maritime boundaries, environmental regulations, scientific research, commerce and the settlement of international disputes involving marine issues. read more

“I call on this Council to prioritise action on the outstanding warrants of arrest issued by the Court,” Fatou Bensouda told the Security Council in New York. She also said that “there can be no justification for States Parties to fail to arrest a suspect against whom an ICC warrant of arrest has been issued, irrespective of that person’s official status.”Ms. Bensouda’s briefing comes one day after the Pre-Trial Chamber II decided that Jordan, which is a non-permanent member of the Security Council, was non-compliant when Mr. Al Bashir visited Amman in March. The Chamber agreed to refer the matter to the Assembly of States Parties of the Rome Statute – which established the ICC – and to the Security Council. “This costly inaction has the potential to undermine the fight against impunity, the effect of which is to lower the bar of accountability that many have fought to raise,” Ms. Bensouda said.“This continuous nonfeasance only serves to embolden others to invite Mr. A1 Bashir to their territory, safe in the knowledge that there will be no consequences from this Council for such breaches,” she added.Mr. Al Bashir last week visited Chad, a country which had been referred to the Security Council for non-compliance on this matter in 2011 and 2013.The Sudanese President also recently visited Russia and Uganda, among other countries. In June 2015, he visited South Africa. While the Chamber established that there was no legal or factual justification for South Africa’s failure to arrest and surrender Mr. Al Bashir, it decided against referring South Africa to the Assembly of States Parties or to the Security Council. In 2005, the Council asked The Hague-based Court to investigate war crimes in Darfur. ICC judges issued arrest warrants in 2009 for Mr. Al Bashir and other top officials for genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes in the western Darfur region, where up to 300,000 people may have died and millions have been displaced since civil war erupted in 2003 between the Government and rebels. read more

An African-American student in New Mexico was left mortified when his teacher told him he couldn’t wear his Santa costume because “Santa Clause is white”.Freshman Christopher Rougier wore a Santa costume to a Christmas dress-up day at his Cleveland High School in Rio Rancho, when his teacher began questioning him. “Don’t you know Santa Clause is white? Why are you wearing that?”Christopher’s family now claim that their son has been entirely put off the idea of Christmas due to the embarrassment that the incident has caused him.

first_imgGoogle’s homepage today greets its visitors with a new Google doodle spotlighting the 100th year of International Women’s Day. The doodle doesn’t just highlight women’s achievements in the last century, clicking on the Google logo takes you to a page that explains more about IWD and its corresponding events that Google has a big part in.Google is inviting both men and women to take part in the “Join me on the Bridge” campaign, which encourages supporters to gather on almost 300 bridges in 50 countries today to celebrate women’s achievements, and to shine a spotlight on issues that effect women in developing countries and around the world.According to Google,We invite you to join tens of thousands of people coming together on bridges all over the world — from the Millennium Bridge in London, the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City, the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, to the Grand Barriere Bridge joining Rwanda and Congo — to show your support for women’s causes and celebrate women’s achievements. If you can’t make it to one of the bridges participating in the event, you can also show support by “checking in virtually” using Street View. The Google Map shows events hosted by Google, by the Women for Women International organization, by hosted supporters, and by hosted online supporters.Google hasn’t just changed its logo for International Women’s Day, the “Pegman” icon found on Google Maps has also been changed to a female version.Below the map is a section that lists ways to support women’s causes. Each section lists places to donate, and information about each cause. Under the “empowerment” tab we learn that 75 percent of all women cannot get bank loans because they have unpaid or insecure jobs and lack property ownership rights. We see in the “economic security” section that women perform two-thirds of the world’s work and produce half the world’s food, but earn just 10 percent of the income and own 1 percent of the property. And in the “health section,” we learn that 99 percent of maternal deaths are preventable, but every minute a woman dies from pregnancy-related causes.International Women’s Day is also sure to bring out the celebrities, including Geena Davis – whose gender-and–media institute is one of the affiliated causes—and Annie Lennox, who will help lead the London event.last_img read more

first_imgArchos conteste le système de taxes sur les tablettes tactilesLe fabricant français Archos estime injuste l’attribution des taxes sur la copie privée à ses tablettes. Une action devant le Conseil d’Etat serait en projet.Archos mise sur ses prix de vente généralement bas pour rivaliser avec les tablettes d’Apple ou celles tournant sous Windows. Mais son argument risque de tomber à l’eau puisque la taxe sur la copie privée devrait forcer le fabricant français à subir “un surcoût de 10%” selon le PDG Henri Crohas. Un surcoût qui devrait “se répercuter sur le prix final que devra payer le consommateur”, rapporte LeMonde.fr.Cette taxe a été créée en 1985 pour compenser le manque à gagner des artistes en cas de diffusion d’une oeuvre (musique ou film) acquise légalement. Celle-ci devrait s’élever à 12 euros par appareil ayant une mémoire allant de 40 à 64 Go. L’élément que conteste Archos est que les terminaux fonctionnant sous Windows ne sont pas soumis à cette taxe, l’OS étant à la base créé pour les ordinateurs. “Une injustice” pour la firme française, dont les tablettes fonctionnent avec le système d’exploitation de Google, Android.

The defeat to Juventus, with the penalty and red card, was a terrible blow for him.“Higuain needs to rediscover that consistency and precision in his finishing, because he has always had those elements.
