Mourinho applauds Ronaldo calls him special

first_imgAfter yesterday’s match at Sochi, Jose Mourinho applauded his former player Cristiano Ronaldo as a player for “special matches” following his hat-trick that helped Portugal draw 3-3 with Spain on Friday.Ronaldo scored a hat-trick alongside a powerful late free-kick, to ensure Portugal claimed a point from a thrilling Group B opener and Mourinho who managed Ronaldo during his time with Real Madrid showered his fellow Portuguese with praises, according to Sky Sport.“He knew. He knew and that’s what I really admire in some players and he is a great example,” said Mourinho in his role as a pundit for Russia Today.“There are players for some matches, there are players for every matches and there are players for special matches. And the players for special matches are the ones.Franck Ribery, FiorentinaFiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.“His [free-kick] record lately is not the best, I think for every free-kick he takes in the national team, he is not scoring as much as he did for Manchester United and for the first years in Real Madrid.“But this one is the critical one, this one is a crucial point, it can affect the self-esteem, the self-confidence, the way to appear in the next two matches, the rivalry, what it means for Portuguese people who is at home. And he has this little touch, this little feeling and the goal is fantastic.”While Ronaldo was the star of the show in Sochi, he was helped on his way to a hat-trick by an error from Manchester United David de Gea.last_img read more

Myanmar not implementing deal with Bangladesh

first_imgAbul Maal Abdul Muhith. File PhotoFinance minister AMA Muhith has expressed his doubt about the Rohingya repatriation, saying the Myanmar government does not live up to its commitment, reports UNB.I’ve a lot of doubt about the Rohingya repatriation by the Myanmar government as they don’t keep their commitment,` he told reporters after a meeting with a delegation of British donor agency DFID at his office on Tuesday. Muhith said the DFID delegation discussed the issues mainly related to the Rohingya repatriation.The delegation members praised the Bangladesh prime minister’s steps over the Rohingya issue, he said.The finance minister said the delegation will visit Rohingya camps in Cox’s Bazar. `Although they wanted to visit Myanmar as well, the authorities denied them entry to Rakkhine state,’he said.He said the government has taken a move to rehabilitate the Rohingyas in Bhasan Char, an island in Noakhali. Those who entered Bangladesh before the recent exodus of Rohingyas will get shelter in Bhasan Char Island and their number might be about 300,000. We can’t take care of one million Rohingyas.”Muhith said an allocation will be made in the upcoming budget for this purpose as a proposal was sent to his ministry from the prime minister’s office. `But I can’t say about the specific figure of the allocation at this stage of budget preparation.”He said the disaster management and relief ministry will implement the Bhasan Char project for Rohingyas. Bangladeshi locals will also remain there as its habitants alongside the displaced Myanmar nationals.Mentioning that the entire world except China and Russia is supporting Bangladesh over the Rohingya issue, the finance minister said the crisis might not be resolved soon as Myanmar is not implementing the agreement signed with Bangladesh.Meanwhile, a delegation of Hindu community leaders along with religious affairs minister Matior Rahman met the finance minister at his office.About the outcome of the meeting with the Hindu delegation, Muhith said at the request of the delegation, he will make an allocation of Tk 1 billion in the next budget for the welfare of the Hindu community.But the money will be spent on different welfare projects following the government’s approval, he said, adding that the amount will be added to a previous allocation of Tk 1 billion under the Hindu Welfare Trust formed by the government.last_img

HC asks Green Line Paribahan to pay Tk 5m to Russel

first_imgHigh CourtThe High Court on Thursday directed the owner of Green Line Paribahan to pay Tk 5 million by 10 April to Russel Sarkar who lost his leg in an accident on 28 April, last year, reports UNB.A HC bench of justice FRM Nazmul Ahasan and justice KM Kamrul Kader passed the order following a petition.The HC also warned that it would confiscate all the buses of the transport company if it fails to pay the amount within the stipulated time. “If you fail to pay, stop selling bus tickets from 11 April to avoid public sufferings,” said the court.Russel, 23, a private car driver, lost his leg on 28 April last year as a bus of Green Line Paribahan had hit his vehicle from behind on Hanif Flyover in Dholaipar on that day. He got down from his car and signaled the bus to stop but driver Kabir Hossain drove his coach over him and fled the scene. Russel’s left leg got severed from his thigh down.Earlier in the day, the court summoned the manager of Green Line Paribahan and asked him to appear before the court by 2pm and explain his failure to provide Tk 50 million Russel Sarkar.Following the order, general manager of the transport company Abdus Sattar appeared before the court and informed it that the owner of the company went to India for treatment on 29 March and will return on 9 April.The court also fixed 10 April to announce its verdict on the case.Khandaker Shamsul Haq Reza stood for the petitioner while lawyer Ajiullah represented Green Line.Earlier on 31 March, the Appellate Division upheld a High Court Division order asking Green Line Paribahan to pay Tk 5 million to accident victim Russel Sarkar.A four-member Appellate Division bench, headed led by chief justice Syed Mahmud Hossain, issued the order rejecting an appeal by the company seeking a stay on the High Court’s order.Later, the HC bench on 31 March asked the Green Line Paribahan authorities to submit a progress report after providing the compensation money.But as the Green Line Paribahan authorities failed to comply with the court order, the High Court expressed its annoyance and said the operation of Green Line Paribahan service would be suspended if they fail to provide the compensation money to the victim, if needed.The High Court also said all the vehicles of Green Line Paribahan will be put on auction after confiscating those to provide the compensation.Earlier on 14 May last year, the High Court asked Green Line Paribahan to explain within four weeks why Russel should not get Tk 10 million as compensation.On 12 March this year, the court ordered the company to pay Tk 5 million to Russel in two weeks as compensation and for his treatment.last_img read more

Ministry of AYUSH goes for centralised data collection of patients

first_imgKolkata: Union Ministry of AYUSH (Ayurveda, Yoga, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy) has initiated efforts for centralised collection of data regarding the number of patients being treated by the various institutions of AYUSH across the country.The ministry has already taken initiatives for the collection of morbidity statistics pertaining to various systems of medicine like Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy. In assistance with Ayurveda, Siddha and Unani research councils, the ministry has developed Morbidity Codes and Standard Terminologies of Ayurveda, Unani and Siddha systems of medicine. The centralised portal developed for this purpose is recognised as National AYUSH Morbidity and Standardized Terminologies Portal (NAMSTP). Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeAccording to the ministry, the portal has the potential to revolutionise morbidity statistics data collection and may have a huge impact on the future policy making decision by bringing to light the contributions of various AYUSH systems in the healthcare delivery system of the country.The key features of the portal includes the Morbidity Codes and Standardized Terminologies of all the AYUSH systems for unambiguous reporting, electronic data submission through individual institution login IDs and also an integrated Electronic Health Records (EHR) system for detailed data collection for individual institutions. It may be mentioned that the Central Council for Research in Ayurvedic Sciences (CCRAS) and Ministry of AYUSH have jointly conducted a two-day training programme on documentation of information on the National AYUSH Morbidity and Standardized Terminologies Portal (NAMSTP). Around 74 nominated AYUSH professionals from across the country took part in the training.

He further stressed the mandatory requirements of AYUSH colleges and institutions funded by the Ministry of AYUSH under various schemes. He said it would facilitate in mass documentation of AYUSH morbidity statistics in an effective manner. He also urged the AYUSH professionals, who are undergoing training, must take initiative to disseminate the capacity building in an effective manner across the stakeholders in different states.World Health Organisation (WHO) has already tied up with the Ministry of AYUSH to chalk out a detailed plan on how traditional modes of treatment can be adopted in foreign countries. The AYUSH Ministry also signed ‘Project Collaboration Agreement’ (PCA) with the WHO for co-operation on promoting the quality, safety, and effectiveness of serving provision in traditional and complementary medicine.last_img read more

The Hilariously Botched Coronation Ceremony of Queen Victoria

first_imgQueen Victoria’s reign of 63 years was, until February 2017, the longest ever rule by a British monarch (now Queen Elizabeth II holds that honor). Yet however successful and glorious Victoria’s time on the throne might have been, her coronation was beset by disaster.When she was born, she stood fifth in line to the throne and an unlikely contender. However, her father along with his brothers and their heirs all died before William IV did on June 20, 1837, leaving Victoria as the next monarch.Queen Victoria aged 80, 1899.Victoria was 18-years-old at the time but it is reported that she conducted herself very regally and calmly.Despite being just 4ft 11 (not quite one and a half meters), she still managed to be seen and heard at the meeting of her privy council — even if she had to be seated on a raised platform to do it.A 1859 portrait of Queen Victoria by Franz Xaver Winterhalter.Her coronation was held on June 28, 1838, almost a year later. Victoria kept a journal and wrote on her coronation day: “I shall remember this day as the proudest of my life.” As it turned out, she had great cause to be proud since she managed to get through five hours of bungling and mistakes with the grace and patience of a true queen.Victoria’s journey to Westminster Abbey was witnessed by an astonishing number of people, since the opening of the railways made it easier for people to reach London.St. Margaret Church, Westminster Abbey in London, England.Since the ceremony was so long, the queen changed her outfit twice. When not required before the main altar, Victoria and others would retreat into St Edward’s chapel. She noted in her journal afterwards just how appalled she was to find it in such a state:“I then again descended from the Throne, and then repaired with all the Peers bearing the Regalia, my Ladies and Train-bearers, to St Edward’s Chapel, as it is called; but which, as Lord Melbourne said, was more unlike a Chapel than anything he had ever seen; for, what was called an Altar was covered with sandwiches, bottles of wine etc.”Sir George Hayter’s view of the coronation.Part of any coronation involves the placing of the crown on the monarch’s head. While this seemed to go without any mishap, problems arose when the Archbishop of Canterbury tried to put the Coronation Ring on the queen’s finger. The ring was sized for Victoria’s pinky finger but the Archbishop tried to force it onto her fourth finger.According to Carolyn Harris, a Toronto-based royal historian, poor Victoria really struggled to get the ring off after the ceremony and was forced to soak her hand in ice-water to try and reduce the swelling.Coronation of Queen Victoria by Edmund Thomas Parris.The Bishop of Durham apparently didn’t do much better since he gave her the ceremonial orb at the wrong moment.But the clergyman to make the gravest mistake had to be the Bishop of Bath and Wells, who accidentally turned over two pages of the Order of Service at once. Unfortunately, it was quite a crucial bit that he missed out, forcing him to call Victoria back so that he could do it again properly.Coronation of Queen Victoria by John Martin, depicting the Queen advancing to the edge of the platform to meet Lord Rolle.As part of the ceremony, peers of the realm were expected to come before the queen and pay their respects. Lord John Rolle was the largest landowner in Devon at the time and was 88 years old.As he started to ascend the steps toward the new queen, he not only fell over but rolled down the steps. Luckily, despite his infirmity, he was unhurt. He got himself up and started up the stairs again, determined to do his duty.Sir George Hayter’s coronation portrait of the Queen.Charles Greville, a diarist of the time, wrote of Victoria’s astonishing act of kindness upon seeing Rolle fall down:“[The Queen’s] first impulse was to rise, and when afterwards he came again to do homage she said, “May I not get up and meet him?” and then rose from the throne and advanced down one or two of the steps to prevent his coming up, an act of graciousness and kindness which made a great sensation. It is, in fact, the remarkable union of naiveite, kindness, nature, good-nature, with propriety and dignity, which makes her so admirable and so endearing to those around her.”The crown made for Queen Victoria.Victoria might have been gracious, but others were not so kind-hearted. Poor Lord Rolle found himself not only the subject of a painting by John Martin the next year which depicted the event, but also included in a poem by the humourist poet, Richard Harris Barham.In Mr Barney Maguire’s Account of the Coronation, Barham penned the following verse:Then the trumpets braying, and the organ playing, And the sweet trombones, with their silver tones; But Lord Rolle was rolling; — t’was mighty consoling To think his Lordship did not break his bones!According to historian Roy Strong, Victoria’s coronation was the last in a long line of botched ceremonies, since the Victorians subsequently put together a programme that has been used ever since.Read another story from us: Royal Family Scandal: The Friendship between Queen Victoria and her Indian ServantWith Victoria on the throne for 63 years, they certainly had a lot of time to plan the next one properly.last_img read more

5 Misconceptions SmallBusiness Owners Have About Big Data

first_img Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Register Now » Data is not a new conversation, yet small businesses still have many misconceptions about how data may be valuable to their business. In the past, only large brands could afford to implement data into their business efforts. Today, however, data is accessible to businesses of all sizes — including yours. Overlooking this new reality occurs far too often and for all the wrong reasons. With this in mind, it is imperative for small businesses to finally overcome the various misconceptions about data and their businesses.  Misconception No. 1: Human touch outweighs anything automated. Entrepreneurs are a unique breed that deliver passion, excitement and cognitive abilities unlike many of their corporate peers when it comes to nurturing a business. The human touch that they offer is undoubtedly a significant aspect of what makes many entrepreneurs successful — yet this same human touch can potentially inhibit success if it is employed at the expense of data collection.Related: The Hidden Advantages Data-Drive Sales Teams Have“One of the most common misconceptions is that people believe they will always outperform computers in their decision-making process. That may have been the case in the past, but with the complexity of today’s markets and the advancement of technology, this assumption no longer holds true,” says Victor Rosenman, CEO of Feedvisor.Expanding on this, Rosenman shares what many of us already know but too often need to be reminded.“All business owners are constantly required to make critical decisions, and the most effective decisions are not based on gut feelings, but on facts and data.”With a reported 28 million small businesses in America, there is too much competition to dismiss the value that data can bring to your business. Combined with human touch, data is a powerful asset that small businesses should leverage instead of dismiss.Misconception No. 2: Revenue will not be enhanced due to data. Small businesses come in all forms, but the common denominator is that they need to make money. Using data — including artificial intelligence — small-business owners can save time and money when applying data solutions to their businesses. Related: The Secret to Outpacing Your Rival? Competitive Insights.“Artificial intelligence gives small-business owners and entrepreneurs the ability to run a lean operation. There are solutions in AI that range from automated call software to market intelligence to retail inventory management and even to sales, such as Salesforce’s Einstein software recently launched using IBM’s Watson technology. The key here is automation, as AI can speed up or eliminate manual processes altogether. Ultimately, these tools offer insights into operations and keep costs low while enabling businesses to function at a much higher level, and see higher revenue as a result,” explains Igor Gorin, CEO of Astound Commerce.Using data, companies can analyze what has taken place within their businesses, leveraging the findings to make future decisions. With this in mind, relying solely on human instincts is a risky proposition.Misconception No. 3: Data should immediately solve problems. Instant gratification is nice, but instant gratification isn’t always the solution.“The view of cognitive systems as brains that automatically solve any problem is a popular misconception. These tools are ideally suited to do things like scale human expertise and augment human intelligence,” IBM’s Brandon Buckner recently explained.Keeping what Buckner says in mind, consider how technology can support your business rather than take the lead. Technologies such as Watson Explorer — which is a platform that gives businesses access to various data touchpoints to help drive business performance and growth — is an example of how businesses can benefit in their decision-making and ROI thanks to using technology. Using data, small-business owners can then make stronger decisions on future business strategies.  Related: Death to Automation: Bring Back the HumansMisconception No. 4: Data is too broad for niche businesses.  Strategizing ideas will always be on an entrepreneur’s to-do list, and it’s these moments that often shape the future of businesses. Yet too often, small businesses neglect to use data to also help shape their future, a mistake that can be both costly and potentially fatal.“Entrepreneurs are people of conviction with big ideas. Unless their service or product revolves around data, data analysis probably isn’t their expertise. Without a specialist within the business, data gathering and analysis is often pushed to the side for priorities that are more directly connected to bringing a product or service to market . . . which is a shame because data can help an entrepreneur make the necessary pivots to improve a business very early on. One of the things we’ve seen from the Fiverr marketplace is a sharp increase over the last year in data analysis services, growing 243 percent year over year,” shares Brent Messenger, global head of community at Fiverr.com, an online marketplace offering tasks and services beginning at just $5 per job performed.With data analysis services such as those available at Fiverr.com being both affordable and easy to access, the costs involved with data can no longer be an excuse for niche market businesses. In fact, data can sometimes even be free for small businesses, which leads us to our final misconception.Related: From Corner Office to Field Ops: 4 Ways to Make Data More ActionableMisconception No. 5: Collecting data will cost too much money. Not much is free nowadays, but fortunately you can collect data for free with Google’s web-traffic monitoring tool Google Analytics, which provides all types of data about website visitors and traffic sources. Using this, businesses can extract data to reveal valuable information including how audiences engage on their websites, origins of website traffic and more.Expanding on the value of data for small businesses is Dan Wilkinson, chief commercial officer of 1WorldSync, who explains that “small businesses are often under the assumption that they should be managing their company and customer data themselves through manual processes to save on the costs of a data provider. Many entrepreneurs take this task upon themselves, spending massive amounts of time and resources inputting, updating and exchanging data with customers and partners. What they don’t realize is that by investing in a solution that can collect and distribute content for them, they can expand their network of partners, eliminate errors and enhance consumer trust.”Related: 4 Things You Can Do to Make Data Work For YouAs Wilkinson points out, time is money — and often it takes spending money to both save time and gain opportunities to make more money. Keeping this in mind, there are many resources available that are small business friendly without breaking the bank. Among them are Tranzlogic, InsightSquared and IBM’s Watson Analytics — all of which offer valuable ways for small businesses to strengthen their overall business efforts through data. Finally, as you begin to introduce data into your own small business, consider the core reason that data is essential. It all directs back to your customers and target market.“It’s important to start with the customer in mind and find tools that give you insight into that customer’s journey to purchase,” says Mark Sullivan, director of demand generation at CallRail.When used correctly, data becomes a powerful tool for driving efficiency, accuracy and increased revenue for your business while also helping to better understand your customer, target market and competition.From increasing customer loyalty to improving inventory management to strengthening B2B relationships, let data help you along the way in your unique small business journey.

OSMFs OpenStreetMap Foundation investigation report on unusual membership signups just before their

first_imgOpenStreetMap Foundation (OSMF), the world’s largest collaborative mapping community, saw some unusual rise in signups for their memberships, in November 2018. Guillaume Rischard, an MWG(Members of the Working Group) member (and then-board candidate), detected that a large group of OSMF membership applications arrived under suspicious circumstances just when the window for eligibility for voting in the 2018 board election was closing. He later reported this issue to the board on 20th November 2018. Rischard along with another  OSMF MWG member, Steve Friedl released an investigation report on this issue, on 26th December 2018. The report was released to other OSMF members exactly a month later, on 26th Jan 2019. The OpenStreetMap Foundation is a non-profit company registered in England and Wales, “supporting, but not controlling, the OpenStreetMap Project”. The OSMF calls for an online general meeting once a year, where they elect new members for the board of directors. The board, however, did not pass a circular resolution that would have rejected these signups. The Membership Working Group (MWG), whose duties include the administration of OSMF memberships, undertook an investigation into the circumstances around this matter. According to the report, some of the observations that were brought to light include: All were Associate members; there’s usually a mix of membership types. All had @gmail.com addresses. Almost none provided OSM usernames; this is very unusual. Many were associated with the IP address of GlobalLogic, an outsourcing firm in India operating in the OSM/mapping world. All came in at the last minute in a very concentrated manner. Rischard in his email addressing his fellow OSMF members wrote, “We have uncovered evidence that the company behind the campaign, GlobalLogic, is not being truthful, and that the members did not sign up individually. GlobalLogic has provided versions of the event that are contradictory and not credible. We do not know the motivations for this campaign, but strongly suspect that this was an attempt, luckily unsuccessful, to influence the recent OSMF board election.” In their report, they have stated that “these new members were not eligible to vote in the 2018 AGM, and unless they renew again next year, probably won’t be able to vote in December 2019.” To know more about this news in detail, read the report, “Investigation into the Unusual Signups”.

LOS ANGELES Calif – A woman said in a lawsuit fi

first_img LOS ANGELES, Calif. – A woman said in a lawsuit filed Wednesday that Russell Simmons raped her at his Los Angeles home in 2016, joining five other women who have publicly levelled rape allegations against the music mogul.Simmons, a co-founder of Def Jam Recordings, denied the newest allegations as he did the previous ones.The lawsuit, which was filed in federal court and seeks $5 million in damages, says Jennifer Jarosik went to Simmons’ home in August 2016 for a meeting about a documentary she was making and Simmons had agreed to help produce.The suit says he tried to have sex with her at the meeting. He raped her when she refused, throwing her on the bed and at one point knocking her on the floor, the suit said.Simmons said in a statement that the allegations in the suit are “absolutely untrue.”“I look forward to having my day in court — where, unlike the court of public opinion, I will have the ability to make use of fair processes that ensure that justice will be done and that the full truth will be known,” Simmons said in a statement.He did not address the specific claims in Jarosik’s lawsuit, saying, “I will not litigate this matter in the media.”But in the lengthy statement he says that the allegations of women against him range “from the patently untrue to the frivolous and hurtful.”“These horrific accusations have shocked me to my core and all of my relations have been consensual,” Simmons said.Three women told the New York Times in a story published in December that Simmons had raped them in the 1980s or 1990s, including an executive who answered to Simmons at his record label, Def Jam Recordings.Two other women, a model and a screenwriter, previously alleged that Simmons raped them in 1991.Jarosik had told friends about the rape but did not go public or call authorities because she partly blamed herself for not having the strength to fight him off, the suit said.Jarosik, 37, said she was prompted to come forward after hearing other women’s stories about Simmons.The women’s stories came in a cascade of serious allegations of sexual misconduct against powerful men in entertainment, media, politics and elsewhere.Simmons, whose company Def Jam made stars of hip-hop artists such as LL Cool J, Slick Rick, The Beastie Boys and Public Enemy, is one of the few music industry icons caught up in the recent wave of allegations that so-far has struck mostly those in the movie industry, journalism and politics.“The music industry and the hip-hop industry have a history of misogyny and the exploitation of women,” Jarosik’s attorney Perry Wander told The Associated Press. “It’s time that they faced the music.” 6th woman alleges rape by Def Jam co-founder Russell Simmons FILE – In this Feb. 6, 2015, file photo, hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons presents the Vanguard Award on stage at the 46th NAACP Image Awards in Pasadena, Calif.

Trillions of cells are kept living and working by the gossamer reticulum of an inimitable delivery-retrieval system.” [Computer graphics: Youngsoo Kim & text: Paolo Soleri] [image: computer rendering for the model of Lean Linear City] “Our monstrous multitudes of automobiles, soon over six billion (American Dream), will never achieve even a pale approximation of the logistical perfection of any organism.” [3-D rendering: Youngsoo Kim & text: Paolo Soleri] [image: computer rendering for the model of Lean Linear City] “Furthermore, a culture based on the automobile leads to the diaspora of habitat, inevitably segregating people and stifling true novelty, the synergies of culture and civilization.” [3-D rendering: Youngsoo Kim & text: Paolo Soleri] [image: computer rendering of LLC features, such as Photovolteic Ribbons, Wind Turbines, Greenhouse and Energy Apron, Elevated Parks, Inner Parks, Inner Park Stream, Light Rail and Local Train, Streams and MULTI-FUNCTIONAL DAM and BRIDGE] “The triumphal technological march of Homo faber is overloading the poorly designed “arterial and venous” networks we naïvely have embraced. The suburban logistical network is sclerotic, and worse, doomed. In order to remain marginally viable, the life of the “organism” becomes grotesque. An aerial view of exurban diaspora evidences that grotesque, monotonous, shallow, delusional life. It is un-civil-ized, i.e., deprived of civitas (the city), but serves well the production, consumption, segregation, waste, and pollution cycles of raw capitalism. The survival of the fittest is its rule, while its very livelihood rests in the obscurantism of materialism. For 1.3 billion Chinese people, the Arcadian utopia conjured by the automobile is a make-believe the planet can’t stomach, much less serve. The hyper-consumption now charming nations does not call forcefully enough for the coherence and idealism now necessary to prevent Homo faber suicide (animism and theology should satisfy our idolatries enough). Our indifference toward the sun and its climatic rage taxes our fragile presence. How to best harness a fraction of the sun’s energy, now that fossil fuels are beginning to show signs of exhaustion, is essential to the structural and functional morphology of the proposed urban ribbon. Its predisposition toward a clean and lean nature includes harvesting solar energy on the spot and paying attention to the logistics of contemporary consumers. We have been de-coupling the urban from the logistical (transportation) and as long as we stay in hyper-consumption mode and persist in automobile supremacy, the conflict has no solution. It is a simple fact of physics (transportation) and hyper-physics (the Urban Effect). SOLARE [LLC] channels both the physical and the hyper-physical (civilization-culture) presence in self-contained complexes and intense urban ribbons capable of lining the continent in the leanest possible mode. The variations available for the single module (200 meters in length) to “clone” itself are unlimited, given the ingenuity and the resolve of the planners, designers, and populations involved. For us ignorant Westerners, it is almost like witnessing not the rebirth of a nation, but a brand new branch of the human genome falling from the heavens. The suddenness of the metamorphosis, the size of things, and the massive population involved is jolting. One fourth of the planet’s population is taking off! It’s breathtaking. For where it will end up is pure guesswork.” This completes the Palo Soleri statement for the present “3 Dimensional City: Future China” exhibition in Beijing, China. We will continue this report on Wednesday, 12/9/2009 with additional images of The Lean Linear City, report concentrates on MULTI-FUNCTIONAL DAM and BRIDGE part of the LLC.

When a Man Loves a Woman" Apparently someone inside the building had done this sort of analysis of the album a small essay and when she got to the song she tore it apart primarily based upon the fact that there was no reason for anyone to ever re-record this song I thought Wow what theyre saying is that I havent really done anything special with it I didnt want to take it off the record so I tried to improve it I called upon my producer Walter Afanasieff and dragged him out of his family vacation to re-record the song with me … eight more times We worked tirelessly and listened back My first

reservation” Contact us at editors@timecomAt the beginning of February Barcelona were galloping away with the La Liga title leading their nearest challengers Atletico Madrid by 11 points They were a whopping 17 points ahead of their bitter rivals Real Madrid Fast forward to the beginning of March and things have changed a lot Though the Catalan giants still retain a 12-point lead over Real with a game in hand they are now only five points ahead of second-placed Atletico A win for Los Rojiblancos in their clash against the Blaugrana on Sunday at the Camp Nou would reduce the gap to just two points The title race is well and truly back on and a poor February for Ernesto Valverde’s team has ensured that the match with Diego Simeone’s troops will be an evenly-fought contest The match also brings together two teams that have lost only one game combined in the league so far — Espanyol are the only team to defeat the team from Madrid while Barcelona have remained unbeaten Diego Simeone’s Atletico will aim to reduce the gap at the top of the table to two points with win over Ernesto Valverde’s Barcelona Reuters Atletico relied on their defensive strength to get them through the initial five months of the season as their summer additions of striker Diego Costa and winger Vitolo couldn’t be a part of the team till January due to the transfer ban imposed on the club Since the turn of the year Simeone’s men have scored 20 goals in nine league matches conceding only three Their season total for goals in La Liga is only 45 That gives us a huge indication about the mindset of the team currently and their flourishing attacking play The return of Costa has helped them go on a run of eight wins and one draw in their last nine La Liga matches The striker has scored three goals and assisted two in the seven matches he has played forming a dangerous partnership with Antoine Griezmann With 10 goals and four assists in the league in 2018 the Frenchman is on fire including seven goals in his last two games The emergence of Thomas Partey in midfield has provided great thrust and solidity to the team allowing the likes of Koke and Saul Niguez to shoulder the playmaking burden A dodgy February for Barcelona saw them drop four points in draws with Espanyol and Getafe as well as a draw with Chelsea in the Champions League Despite getting themselves back on track with a 6-1 win over Girona they went on to drop another two points in their next encounter against Las Palmas Their results in the last five matches in the league have seen them draw three encounters and win two causing the title race to remain alive Valverde will be keen on silencing their critics and getting a comprehensive win to quell all talks of a collapse Goals have been a little tough to come by for the Catalans despite having scored 10 goals in five league matches as six of them came in one match The team have been over-dependent on talisman Lionel Messi for attacking inspiration and have often looked to rely on their new-found defensive resilience this season to help them secure results A statement win at the Camp Nou against the title challengers would definitely send a strong message to doubters everywhere Both teams adopt slightly different versions of the 4-4-2 with Atletico playing Partey and Saul in the centre of midfield allowing Koke to play from the left and offering defensive cover while Angel Correa does the same from the right The presence of Griezmann and Costa up top offers the team from Madrid a dual threat as both of them can play well both on the ground and in the air Samuel Umtiti and Gerard Pique will have to work hard to win their duels with the Atletico duo if they wish to continue unopposed on their way to the La Liga title Barcelona have also played a 4-4-2 in most of their matches this season opting for solidity in midfield rather than flamboyance giving Messi the reins of the team going forward With Ivan Rakitic and Sergio Busquets taking their places in the centre Paulinho provides the team with size and physicality especially in the bigger matches offering them another dimension With new boy Philippe Coutinho finally looking like he has settled down Valverde might opt for the Brazilian instead of Paulinho to give them more of a threat on the ball The combination play between Messi and Jordi Alba has been key to the Catalan club’s play going forward and will be crucial against Atletico as well Luis Suarez has picked up his form after struggling earlier in the season and has been on top of his game of late dovetailing beautifully with Messi Suarez has scored 20 goals and provided six assists to go with the Argentine’s 23 goals and 12 assists accounting for two-thirds of the club’s goals in the league Defensively Diego Godin and Luis Gimenez will be crucial if the away side are to keep Barcelona quiet Another talking point ahead of the clash is the fact that Barcelona have admitted to speaking to Griezmann’s representatives about a potential move in the summer with the player’s 100 million buyout clause raising the Catalan side’s hopes of signing him Despite having decided to stay at the club to support them during their transfer ban the Frenchman was initially unsettled but has been professional throughout and is now back to his best If Atletico do agree to sell him they would be hoping that he takes them to their second league title in five years before he makes the move It was on a bright summer afternoon in the summer of 2014 that Simeone took his men to the Camp Nou to take on Barcelona knowing that avoiding a loss would mean that his team would be crowned La Liga champions Los Colcheneros did that with great precision limiting the Catalans’ goal attempts before getting the equaliser through Godin and hanging on to it Having kept 17 clean sheets in the league this season the Argentine knows that his team have what it takes to defeat Valverde’s men The reverse fixture this season saw both teams play out a 1-1 draw with Suarez scoring late to help break Atletico’s resistance Though it might be premature to call this a title-deciding clash what with 11 rounds of matches left after this and with both teams still to face Real Madrid Atletico Madrid will take to the pitch at the Camp Nou confident in their own abilities as they look to invoke the spirit with which they played in this very stadium four years ago to clinch their first league title in 18 years and they told me Id be the first person to sing there since 1945. these projects came about,uk on
