  1. Head of the People's Party (OeVP) Sebastian Kurz (L) and head of the Freedom Party (FPOe) Heinz-Christian Strache address a news conference in Vienna, Austria, December 16, 2017. REUTERS VIENNA: Austria is set to become the only western European country with a far-right party in government after the anti-immigration Freedom Party and Sebastian Kurz?s conservatives struck a coalition deal they plan to present on Saturday. Kurz, who is just 31, and Freedom Party (FPO) leader Heinz-Christian Strache announced their deal on Friday night, handing the far right a share of power for the third time in the Alpine republic, after more than a decade in opposition. They said they would unveil details later on Saturday after meeting Austria?s president and obtaining formal approval from their party leaderships. The FPO will take control of much of Austria?s security apparatus as the deal puts it in charge of the foreign, interior and defense ministries, a spokesman for Kurz?s People?s Party (OVP) said. The OVP will control the Finance Ministry as well the justice and agriculture portfolios. ?If everything goes as we imagine it will, nothing stands in the way of the future government being sworn it at the start of the coming week,? President Alexander Van der Bellen, whose powers include appointing and dismissing governments, said after meeting Kurz and Strache on Saturday morning. Van der Bellen beat a far-right candidate in last year?s close-fought presidential election with a pro-European platform. His defeated opponent, Norbert Hofer, will become infrastructure minister in the next government, the OVP spokesman said. Kurz will head the government as chancellor and the OVP will have eight ministries including his office. The FPO will have six, including Strache?s office as vice chancellor.
  2. Robert Lewandowski has fired his way into 10th place in the list of the Bundesliga's all-time top scorers as the Polish striker just keeps on hitting the net. Lewandowski rescued Bayern with a second-half winner in Wednesday's 1-0 victory over bottom side Cologne as the league leaders struggled to break down a determined defence at the sold-out Allianz Arena. "It is unbelievable that he is in the top 10 - he is simply a goal hunter," Arturo Vidal said of his team-mate as Bayern went nine points clear at the top of the table. The Poland international has now scored 21 goals in 24 games in all competitions this season, plus five more in World Cup qualifiers to help book Poland's place in Russia. Lewandowski's goal against Cologne was his 166th since 2010 in Germany's top flight -- a tally achieved with Bayern and former club Borussia Dortmund. He is in good company as Bayern head coach Jupp Heynckes is third on the list with 220 goals scored for Borussia Moenchengladbach and Hanover 96 between 1963 and 1978. But Lewandowski is a distance off the record 365 goals scored by Bayern and West Germany legend Gerd Mueller. The 72-year-old former World Cup winner, nicknamed 'Der Bomber', netted the phenomenal tally between 1964 and 1979 -- and Lewandowski is not even halfway to that mark. The 29-year-old Poland forward is also 25 goals short of becoming the highest-scoring active player in Germany. Veteran Peru striker Claudio Pizarro, 39, now at Cologne, has scored 191 goals over multiple stints at Bayern and Werder Bremen. Lewandowski has twice lifted the 'Golden Cannon' trophy, awarded to the Bundesliga's top scorer, and narrowly missed out to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang last season despite a return of 30 goals in 33 league games.
  3. At least four children were killed and seven people were seriously injured on Thursday after a train crashed into a school bus at a level crossing in southern France, police sources said. The bus, which was carrying mainly junior high school students, was struck by the train in Millas about 18 kilometres west (11 miles) of the city of Perpignan, close to the Spanish border. A rescue operation was under way. The head of security for the Pyrenees area, where the collision took place, confirmed the accident involving a train travelling west from Perpignan to the town of Villefranche de Conflent. The bus was transporting mainly junior high-school students. The BFMTV channel said it was struck in the rear. President Emmanuel Macron in a tweet wrote: "All my thoughts for the victims of this terrible accident involving a school bus, as well as their families. The state is fully mobilised to help them." Prime Minister Edouard Philippe and Transport Minister Elisabeth Borne were on their way to the scene from a meeting in the south-central city of Cahors. "It's a terrible event," Education Minister Jean-Michel Blanquer said, expressing "profound sadness".
  4. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in Japan. Photo: Reuters TOKYO: UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, warning against the danger of ?sleepwalking? into war, said on Thursday that Security Council resolutions on North Korea?s nuclear and missile programmes must be fully implemented by Pyongyang and other countries. Guterres made the comments to reporters after meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Tokyo just days after US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson offered to begin direct talks with North Korea without pre-conditions. The White House said Wednesday that no negotiations could be held with North Korea until it improves its behaviour. The White House has declined to say whether President Donald Trump, who has taken a tougher rhetorical line toward Pyongyang, gave approval to Tillerson?s overture. ?It is very clear that the Security Council resolutions must be fully implemented first of all by North Korea but by all other countries whose role is crucial to ... achieve the result we all aim at, which is the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula,? Guterres said. Guterres added that Security Council unity was also vital ?to allow for the possibility of diplomatic engagement? that would allow denuclearisation to take place. ?The worst possible thing that could happen is for us all to sleepwalk into a war that might have very dramatic circumstances,? he said. Japan says now is the time to keep up maximum pressure on Pyongyang, not start talks on the North?s missile and nuclear programmes. China and Russia, however, have welcomed Tillerson?s overture. Abe, who spoke to reporters with Guterres, reiterated that dialogue needed to be meaningful and aimed at denuclearisation. ?We fully agreed that the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula is indispensable for the peace and stability of the region,? Abe said. Tillerson?s overture came nearly two weeks after North Korea said it had successfully tested a breakthrough intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that put the entire United States mainland within range. In September, North Korea fired a ballistic missile over the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido, the second to fly over Japan in less than a month.
  5. An Ariane 5 rocket blasts off from the Kourou Space Centre (Europe spaceport) carrying four Galileo satellites, on December 12, 2017, in Kourou, French Guiana. Photo: AFP KOUROU: An Ariane 5 rocket put four GPS satellites into orbit on Tuesday for Europe's Galileo navigation project, Arianespace said. The European space workhorse took off at 1836 GMT and deployed the satellites four hours after launch. The Galileo programme, when complete, will have 30 satellites in three orbital planes by 2020. If all goes according to plan the system will be able to pinpoint a location on Earth to within a metre -- compared to several metres for the United States´ GPS and the Russian GLONASS systems. The civilian-controlled Galileo system, seen as strategically important to Europe, went live in December last year, providing initial services with a weak signal, having taken 17 years at more than triple the original budget to get there. "With this sixth successful launch of an Ariane 5 in 2017, marking the second mission of the year for the benefit of the European Commission and the European Space Agency (ESA), Arianespace is proud to guarantee Europe reliable and independent access to space," said Stephane Israel, Arianespace´s executive chairman. The satellites launched Tuesday, each one weighing 715 kilogrammes (1,590 pounds), were placed into orbit 23,000 kilometres (14,000 miles) from Earth. The Galileo programme is funded and owned by the EU. The European Commission has overall responsibility for the programme, managing and overseeing the implementation of all activities, but the deployment, design and development of the infrastructure is entrusted to the ESA. The European Commission announced in July that investigators had uncovered the problems behind the failure of atomic clocks onboard satellites already launched as part of the Galileo satnav system. For months, the ESA had been investigating the reasons behind failing clocks onboard some of the 18 navigation satellites it had already launched for Galileo. The ESA found after an investigation that its rubidium clocks had a faulty component that could cause a short circuit, according to European sources.
  6. Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson needs no introduction. Especially if you grew up in the late 90s, it's almost a guarantee that you've heard his catchphrase- 'Can you smell what The Rock is cooking'. If not in the ring, you must have seen him in a ton of movies as well. He credits his success to nothing but his hard work and the love of his fans. Everything this man does actually becomes a lesson to be learned. So, let's take a look at what the Rock taught us in 2017. 1) Never Miss Your Workout. NEVER! © Instagram If you follow him on social media, you'll see just how hectic his schedule is. Traveling the world, shooting movies, attending premieres and award shows, he still never misses his training sessions. Even if it's at 3 am, best believe that he will show up. In the same way, you should always attack any challenge with fearlessness, do not let time constraints or any other excuse come between you and your goal. If you have a goal, work hard for it. 2) Determination Can Take You Places. Excuses Won't © Instagram 'In 1995 I had $7 bucks in my pocket and knew two things: I'm broke as hell and one day I won't be.' When Dwayne Johnson was 23, a failed football career led him to follow his father's footsteps in pro wrestling. But while his lineage might have helped him towards the path to the top, he was never given any handouts in his career. It was through his sheer determination and focus he was able to achieve stardom. Once you have that focus and determination in whatever you're doing from the beginning, the only thing stopping you from getting it…is yourself. 3) Consistency Breeds Greatness © Instagram Greatness is all about consistency and consistency breeds greatness. Motivation will get you through a day or a week but in order to keep improving at whatever you are trying to do, consistency is the key. Consistency is getting back up every time you fall and keep persisting. Nothing's going to be given to you in this life. 4) Take Risks. Opportunities Don't Come By Just Like That. © Instagram Life is full of opportunities to climb up the ladder and get better, but it's just all a matter of seizing that moment and taking control. Look at The Rock, he took every opportunity presented to him; be it wrestling or acting and smashed it. Look, the biggest regrets are the chances you never take. Kick that door open and make grab whatever opportunity you can by the throat. 5) Self Belief © Instagram When it comes down to it, you should believe in yourself so damn much that you'll fight for what you believe in. That means kicking ass, taking names and making sure everyone remembers what you're there for. Of course, that means you should be able to walk the walk too, but make sure your intentions are clear to yourself and everyone else around you. "The road to success and greatness is always paved with consistent hard work. Outwork your competitors, be authentic and above all else chase your greatness."

  7. FO Spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal. Photo: File ISLAMABAD: India should stop dragging Pakistan into its electoral debate and win victories on own strength rather than fabricated conspiracies, which are utterly baseless and irresponsible, stated the Foreign Office on Monday. The statement was posted on Twitter by FO Spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal. The issue stems from an ongoing bitter political mudslinging between India's two biggest political parties: the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Indian National Congress. According to NDTV, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi suggested at a rally on Sunday that Pakistan is trying to influence the assembly elections in Gujarat, linking the matter to a dinner hosted by Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar earlier this week which was also attended by Pakistani officials. Modi claimed in the rally that a former Pakistan Army officer has supported senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel for becoming the chief minister of Gujarat. The Congress slammed Modi's remarks as "highly irresponsible and outrageous" and has demanded an apology. The dinner at Aiyar's home in Delhi was held on December 6 during the visit of Pakistan's former foreign minister Khurshid Mahmood Kasuri. The second and last phase of the Gujarat Legislative Assembly elections will be held on Thursday, bringing an end to a bitter political campaign between the two arch-rivals. Results are expected on December 18.
  8. Sony Pictures joined hands with Marvel and gave us the first trailer for 'Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse', which is supposed to be the first animated feature spider man movie. And now people, it is time to be meet Mile Morales. The trailer made its much awaited release at the 'Comic Con Experience 2017' in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The film is based on the Spider-Verse Marvel event which traced Morlun and his family killing every possible spider character that existed across the humungous Marvel universe. © Sony Pictures Eventually the spider men from all over gather to team up and win this war. The official synopsis of the movie reads something like this: “Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the creative minds behind The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street, bring their unique talents to a fresh vision of a different Spider-Man Universe, with a groundbreaking visual style that's the first of its kind. “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one can wear the mask.” The movie is all set to hit screens on December 14th 2018 so that's a long wait but we trust these trailers to continue coming our way.
  9. Anil Kapoor and Salman Khan pose together with Race 3 producer Ramesh Taurani. Photo: Salman Khan/Twitter Bollywood's Dabangg Khan, Salman Khan, welcomed 'Jhakas' Anil Kapoor to his upcoming movie Race 3. Salman shared on his Twitter: "Inke Aane se Race 3 ka cast aur ho gaya jhakas @anilskapoor @RameshTaurani #Race3" Replying to this Anil Kapoor shared: "Jab baat #Race ki hai, toh hum peeche kaise reh sakte hain!" However, reports suggest that instead of reprising the role of flamboyant Inspector Robert D'Costa Anil will be playing Salman's father in the movie. Earlier, Amitabh Bachchan had been approached for the role but he turned it down. If the reports are true, it would be interesting to see Anil, who is only nine years older than Salman, to play the role of superstar's father. The actors have worked in multiple movies together such as Biwi No 1 and No Entry. Salman has also romanced Anil's daughter Sonam Kapoor in blockbuster Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.
  10. Tesla CEO Elon Musk unveils the Roadster 2 during a presentation in Hawthorne, California, US, November 16, 2017.Photo: REUTERS MIAMI: SpaceX confirmed Wednesday its CEO Elon Musk plans to blast his cherry red electric car off toward the Red Planet when the company´s Falcon Heavy rocket launches for the first time next month. Many wondered if Musk was joking last week when he tweeted his plans for the Falcon Heavy´s inaugural payload to be his "midnight cherry Tesla Roadster playing Space Oddity," the classic song by the late David Bowie. "Destination is Mars orbit. Will be in deep space for a billion years or so if it doesn´t blow up on ascent," the famed space enthusiast and Internet tycoon said on Twitter on Friday. But SpaceX confirmed to AFP on Wednesday that the plan is for real. Touted as the "world´s most powerful rocket," the Falcon Heavy is designed to one day carry crew and supplies to deep space destinations such as the Moon and Mars. It can propel 119,000 pounds (54 metric tons) -- or the same as a fully loaded Boeing 737 jet -- into orbit, twice the load of the Delta IV Heavy, currently the biggest rocket in operation. The Saturn V moon rocket, which last flew in 1973, was more powerful. There were also two bigger rockets during the Soviet era -- the N1 which was the most powerful first stage ever built, though it failed to launch successfully; and Energia which only launched twice. The Falcon Heavy is essentially three of the California-based company´s Falcon 9 rockets put together, with 27 Merlin engines instead of nine. SpaceX says it will cost a third of what it costs to launch the Delta IV. A date has not yet been set for the Falcon Heavy launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida, which has been delayed several times -- but SpaceX says it should happen in January 2018. According to astronomer and blogger Phil Plait, who was able to reach Musk for more details about the plan, the car won´t be sent into orbit around Mars, but will enter "an orbit around the Sun that takes it as close to the Sun as Earth and as far out as Mars." Other items may be added to the payload as well. "Just bear in mind that there is a good chance this monster rocket blows up, so I wouldn´t put anything of irreplaceable sentimental value on it," Musk was quoted as saying.

  12. Lamborghini, the fabled Italian sports car manufacturer, on Monday unveiled its new Sports Utility Vehicle, accelerating into a fast growing market already crowded with upmarket rivals. The Urus, as the four-wheel drive "super SUV" will be known, was revealed at the Volkswagen group-owned company's historic home near Bologna. It will reach a top speed of 305 kph (190 mph), can go from zero to 100 kph in 3.6 seconds and brake from 100 kph to zero in 33.7 metres, company officials said. Building the Urus, which will be sold in Europe for 171,500 euros ($203,000) excluding taxes, was "challenging at every level," said Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali. With its 650-horsepower, twin-turbo V8 engine, the Urus is something that has never been seen before on a road, according to the firm's design director, Mitja Borkert. He said the SUV was inspired by two emblematic models from the past -- the LM002 that was the company's first foray into SUVs (it was dubbed the Lamborghini Truck), and the distinctively wedge-shaped Countach sportscar of the 1970s and 1980s. The SUV "allows you to travel on any terrain: on road, off road, on ice but also on sand dunes," said Lamborghini research and development director Maurizio Reggiani, suggesting it will be the fastest SUV on the market. In the battle to capture the attention of wealthy drivers, the new entrant will be up against the likes of Bentley's Bentayga, the Mercedes G-Class and footballers' favourite, the Porsche Cayenne. Aston Martin, Rolls Royce and Ferrari are all either in the process of or considering joining the high-rev party, despite the reservations of purist fans of those famous brands. Sales of SUVs and CUVs (cross-over utility vehicles) have increased by 233 percent in the last 10 years, creating a market of 26,47 million units in 2016. Analysts expect the broader market to expand a further 30 percent by 2020, although the ultra-expensive super SUV sector will represent only a tiny niche part of the increase. The Lamborghini plant has been redesigned and its capacity doubled with the addition of 500 new staff to meet anticipated demand from one of the auto industry's most dynamic sectors. In 2016, nearly 21,000 super SUVs were sold, up 346 percent in five years, according to IHS Markit. Lamborghini made 3,457 sports cards last year and is expecting to sell a similar number of the Urus by 2019. The first models will be registered next year.
  13. A blind dolphin was rescued and released back into Rohri canal by area residents. Photo: Geo News screen grab NAUSHERO FEROZ: A blind dolphin was rescued and released back into Rohri canal by area residents, Geo News reported Monday. However, the area residents shared that there is a threat to the dolphin?s life as it might get stuck on the door of Phull Fall regulator near Naushero Feroz. The residents also asked the officials of the wildlife department to release the dolphin into the Indus River. The residents shared that a dolphin was killed after it got stuck in the door of the same regulator earlier. On November 16, two blind dolphins were rescued from Kirthar Canal and released in the Indus River. Two blind dolphins rescued near Sukkur According to an official they swam into Kirthar Canal two months back According to the dolphin rescue incharge, Mir Akhtar Talpur, as the water level in Indus River is going down, dolphins swim into the canal in search of food. He added two dolphins of rare species swam into the canal two months back. Since then the authorities concerned had kept an eye on the fish so as to protect them from any harm, the incharge said. However, on Thursday, water level in Kirthar Canal of Sukkur Barrage was reduced and the dolphins were taken out to be released in Indus River. As per data released earlier, the Indus blind dolphin was one the most-threatened sweet water dolphin species. There was once a time when a large number of the blind dolphin would be found in the Indus River. But now, its habitat has shrunk due to the construction of reservoirs, dams and barrages for agricultural purposes.

  17. Slobodan Praljak consumes 'poison'. Photo: File THE HAGUE: A UN war crimes court said Friday it is launching an "independent expert review" into the death of a Bosnian Croat war criminal who appeared to drink poison in front of shocked judges. The probe will complement the Dutch investigation into the suicide of Slobodan Praljak, the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) said in a statement. Praljak, 72, died in hospital shortly after drinking from a small brown glass bottle in the ICTY courtroom on Wednesday, with his lawyer claiming it was poison. His final act of defiance, which was broadcast live around the world, came just moments after judges rejected his appeal, upholding his 20-year jail term for atrocities committed in a breakaway Bosnian Croat statelet during the 1990s wars. On Thursday, Dutch prosecutor Marilyn Fikenscher told AFP that initial tests showed the bottle contained "a chemical substance which can cause death" although they have yet to carry out an autopsy or toxicology tests. The shocking images drew the curtain on two decades of work at the court, set up in 1993 to try those responsible for the worst atrocities in Europe since World War II. But it remains a mystery what the former theatre and movie director, known for his forcible courtroom presence and outbursts, drank and how he managed to get it past the tight security at the tribunal. ´Couldn´t live with it´ Speaking to Croatia´s HINA news agency, Praljak´s lawyer Nika Pinter said she had no idea what her client was about to do. "Nobody killed him, it was suicide. I am sad but I understand and respect what he did," she told the agency Thursday on board a flight from Amsterdam to Zagreb. "I never thought he could do such a thing, but I understand because he is a man of honour who couldn?t live with a conviction for war crimes and being led out of the courtroom in handcuffs." The lawyer said that during conversations ahead of the verdict, Praljak had never given any hint of what he was planning, but she said it was clear her client would find it very difficult to accept the court?s confirmation of his 20-year sentence. Assisted suicide? Dutch prosecutors have already launched a full investigation at the court?s request, including into security lapses, and have said their probe will focus on "assisted suicide and violation of the Medicines Act". The UN court probe, which will begin next week, will look at "ICTY internal operations" in order to assess "relevant existing procedures as well as make any recommendations which may assist other courts in the future," the statement said. It will be led by justice Hassan B Jallow, chief justice of The Gambia and former prosecutor at the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, and will aim to issue a report by the time the court closes on December 31, with its conclusions to be made public. Major questions remain about how Praljak obtained the substance and if it happened at the fortress-like UN detention centre in Scheveningen where he was being held, or inside the tribunal building a few miles away. Everyone entering the UN detention centre is subjected to security checks "irrespective of his or her status, nationality, function or age," according to the rules. And everyone must pass through scanners. Every item brought to the centre or sent by mail is also inspected, or opened or X-rayed.
  18. Emmerson Mnangagwa is sworn in as Zimbabwe's president in Harare, Zimbabwe, November 24, 2017. REUTERS (FILE) HARARE: Zimbabwe President Emmerson Mnangagwa appointed senior military officials to top posts in his first cabinet on Friday in what was widely seen as a reward for the army?s role in the removal of his predecessor, Robert Mugabe. Mnangagwa was sworn in as president a week ago after 93-year-old Mugabe quit in the wake of a de facto military coup. Mnangagwa, a former state security chief known as ?The Crocodile?, made Major-General Sibusiso Moyo foreign minister and gave Air Marshal Perrance Shiri the land portfolio. He brought back Patrick Chinamasa as finance minister once more despite his chequered record in that post previously. Most Zimbabweans remember Moyo as the khaki-clad general who went on state television in the early hours of Nov. 15 to announce the military takeover that ended Mugabe?s 37-year rule. Shiri is feared - and loathed - by many Zimbabweans as the former commander of the North Korean-trained ?5 Brigade? that played a central role in the so-called Gukurahundi massacres in Matabeleland in 1983 in which an estimated 20,000 people were killed. ?For most observers, this looks like a reward for the military - or more specifically like the military asserting its authority,? London-based political analyst Alex Magaisa wrote on Twitter. Mnangagwa dropped allies of Mugabe?s wife, Grace, but brought back many Mugabe loyalists from the ruling ZANU-PF party, disappointing those who had been expecting a break with the past. ?Zimbabweans were expecting a sea change from the Mugabe era. After all, had there not been a revolution, or so they thought?? Magaisa said. New information minister Chris Mutsvangwa, leader of the powerful liberation war veterans, was not immediately available for comment. Old wine Mnangagwa?s opponents from Grace Mugabe?s ousted G40 faction derided the line-up as old wine in a khaki bottle. ?Even #Nigeria didn?t have so many commanders in Cabinet in its coup days!? former information minister and G40 leader Jonathan Moyo, who remains in hiding, said on Twitter. Chinamasa, a lawyer by training, had been finance minister since 2013 until he was shifted to the new ministry of cyber security in a reshuffle this year. During his time in charge, though, the economy stagnated, with a lack of exports causing acute dollars shortages that crippled the financial system and led to long queues outside banks. The issuance of billions of dollars of domestic debt to pay for a bloated civil service - a key component of the ZANU-PF patronage machine under Mugabe - also triggered a collapse in the value of Zimbabwe?s de facto currency and ignited inflation. ?I had expected a more broad-based cabinet,? said economist Anthony Hawkins, adding that Mnangagwa?s faith in Chinamasa suggested loyalty trumped ability. ?Chinamasa?s appointment was to be expected, notwithstanding his appalling record.? With elections due next year, Mnangagwa needs to deliver a quick economic bounce and has made clear he wants to curb wasteful expenditure, pointing out that his cabinet has 22 ministers compared to Mugabe?s 33. One of his most pressing tasks will be to patch up relations with donors and the outside world and work out a deal to clear Zimbabwe?s $1.8 billion of arrears to the World Bank and African Development Bank. Without that, the new administration will be unable to unlock any new external financing. British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson told Reuters this week London was thinking about extending a bridging loan to Harare to allow this to happen, although said it depended on ?how the democratic process unfolds?.
  19. Often labelled as 'delicate' and 'weak' with the ever-increasing disparity in wages highlighting their plight which is further marred by the lack of fanfare and recognition, the success stories of Mithali Raj and Jhulan Goswami in cricket, Saina Nehwal and PV Sindu in badminton and Mary Kom and Sarita Devi in boxing goes on to show that women are not just fighting against all odds, but have also shunned the naysayers by proving their mettle in male-dominated sports. On 29 November, Saikhom Mirabai Chanu became the latest addition to this group of spirited Indian sportswomen who are hell-bent on changing the country's perception about women's sports. Goosebumpsð®ð³ð®ð³ð®ð³!#MirabaiChanu U made every Indian proud by winning Goldðin World Weightlifting Championship..Congratsðð Your achievement will inspire millions of young girlsðª pic.twitter.com/GnbymXeiid — Maj Surendra Poonia (@MajorPoonia) November 30, 2017 Standing on the podium with a gold medal around her neck and seeing the Indian tricolour flying high after overwhelming tournament-favourite Thunya Sukcharoen in California, Chanu was an embodiment of success - achieved on the back of great perseverance, hardwork and sheer will - giving a desperate shot in the arm to Indian weightlifting. What a fantastic day for #Indian sport! Huge congratulations to Saikhom Mirabai Chanu for winning the #Gold at the 2017 World Weightlifting Championship ðªððð #Champion #Superstar pic.twitter.com/hOhFKa9Ems — Vinesh Phogat (@Phogat_Vinesh) November 30, 2017 Ending her country's wait of 22 years, the Manipuri weightlifter etched her name in history as the first Indian in over two decades and only the second overall to bag a World Championships gold in weightlifting. India's more-popular weightlifter Karnam Malleswari had bagged gold medals in the competition back in 1994 and 1995 respectively. Competing in the women's 48kg category, the 23-year-old lifted a combined weight of 194kg - 85kg in snatch and 109kg in clean and jerk - which was just one kg over the best attempt of the tournament favourite from Thailand, but good enough to cause a big upset. Congratulations to Saikhom #MirabaiChanu for lifting Gold at the World Weightlifting Championship and creating a World record. Entire nation is proud of you.pic.twitter.com/JpBEetHVmT — Naveen Jindal (@MPNaveenJindal) November 30, 2017 But, Chanu's triumphant outing in the US is not about national pride, records and fanfare; in fact it's much more than that. Hers was a campaign aimed at finding her lost vigour and overcoming the demons of past failures notably the horrific 2016 Rio Olympics. After claiming the national record in the women's 192kg category from her idol Kunjarani Devi in the run-up to the Olympic Games, Chanu witnessed a disastrous debut at the grandest stage of all. With a bout of nerves getting the better of her, the young weightlifter could only manage to successfully lift just one of her six attempts - three in the snatch and three in the clean and jerk category. Reuters Out of the 12 lifters in the women's 48kg category in Rio, she was one of the two participants who did not finish (DNF) the event. Her dreams were shattered, years of hardwork in training camps came to naught and India's struggle in women's weightlifting took centre stage. But, Manipur is famous for producing athletes who don't believe in giving up, Mary Kom is a prime example and Chanu proved no different. Learning from her mistakes, she continued to believe in herself and so did her coaches and selectors. As her training resumed after the Rio horror, Chanu was reminded of her struggles that included the long hours of cycling from her home to a weightlifting centre that sparked her love for the sport. At times, she was told how much the country had invested in her at national camps and how everyone around continues to believe in her talent and potential. BCCL And, not so surprisingly, all the efforts - her own and those of selectors and coaches - have finally borne fruit at one of the prestigious tournaments in the world. Chanu has also broken free from the shadows of Kunjarani Devi and Karnam Malleswari as her achievement at the World Championships goes beyond her personal struggles and eventual glory. More importantly, in the bigger scheme of things, just like Mithali, Saina and Sindhu have inspired younger girls and fellow sportswomen to come out of the shadows of their male counterparts, the Manipur lass has undoubtedly given Indian weightlifting a shot in the arm by bringing the sport back into the collective public consciousness.
  20. Holders Barcelona eased into the last 16 of the Copa del Rey by thrashing Real Murcia 5-0 at the Camp Nou on Wednesday to complete an 8-0 aggregate victory. Already leading 3-0 from the first leg, Barca boss Ernesto Valverde made 10 changes from Sunday's top-of-the-table clash at Valencia with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez among those to drop out. Paco Alcacer kept up his fine strike rate this season with his fourth goal of the campaign from just over 400 minutes on the field when he headed home Aleix Vidal's pass on 16 minutes. Barca had to wait until 10 minutes into the second-half to double their advantage when captain for the night Gerard Pique tapped into an empty net from another Vidal cross. Vidal then completed a fine team move himself when he headed home Nelson Semedo's cross. And fine finishes from Denis Suarez and Jose Manuel Arnaiz rounded off the scoring. Wissam Ben Yedder scored twice in the opening six minutes as Sevilla cruised past Cartagena 4-0 to seal a 7-0 aggregate win in the absence of coach Eduardo Berizzo. Berizzo underwent surgery on a cancerous tumour of the prostate on Tuesday with his assistant Ernesto Marcucci taking charge whilst he recovers. Paulo Henrique Ganso and Joaquin Correa were also on target for the five-time winners. Third tier Lleida pulled off a stunning comeback and the upset of the Cup so far by overcoming a 2-0 deficit on the night and 3-0 on aggregate to oust Real Sociedad on away goals. Diego Llorente and Juanmi put the La Liga side in a commanding position before half-time, but second-half goals from Aitor Nunez, Manu Molina and Bojan Radulovic handed Lleida a famous win. The returning Gareth Bale helped Real Madrid overcome a scare of their own to reach the last 16 on Tuesday despite being held 2-2 at the Santiago Bernabeu by Fuenlabrada in a 4-2 aggregate win. Celta Vigo, Leganes, Levante and Numancia have also sealed their places in the last 16.
  21. Bangladesh approved a $280 million project on Tuesday to develop an isolated and flood-prone island in the Bay of Bengal to temporarily house 100,000 Rohingya Muslims fleeing violence in neighbouring Myanmar. Photo: Reuters file DHAKA: Bangladesh approved a $280 million project on Tuesday to develop an isolated and flood-prone island in the Bay of Bengal to temporarily house 100,000 Rohingya Muslims fleeing violence in neighboring Myanmar. The decision came just days after Bangladesh sealed a deal aiming to start returning Rohingya to Myanmar within two months to reduce pressure in refugee camps. A Bangladeshi government committee headed by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina approved the plan to develop Bhashan Char island, also known as Thenger Char, despite criticism from humanitarian workers who have said the island is all but uninhabitable. Planning Minister Mustafa Kamal said it would take time to repatriate the refugees, and in the meantime Bangladesh needed a place to house them. The project to house 100,000 refugees on the island would be complete by 2019, he said that many people are living in dire conditions, he said, describing the influx of refugees as ?a threat to both security and the environment?. More than 600,000 Rohingya Muslims have sought sanctuary in Bangladesh after the military in mostly Buddhist Myanmar launched a harsh counter-insurgency operation in their villages across the northern parts of Rakhine State. Bangladesh Foreign Minister Abul Hassan Mahmood Ali appealed in September for international support to transport Rohingya to the island. Bangladesh, one of the world?s poorest and most crowded nations, plans to develop the island, which emerged from the silt off Bangladesh?s delta coast only 11 years ago and is two hours by boat from the nearest settlement. It regularly floods during June-September monsoons. When seas are calm, pirates roam the nearby waters to kidnap fishermen for ransom. A plan to develop the island and use it to house refugees was first proposed in 2015 and revived last year. Despite criticism of the conditions on the island, Bangladesh says it has the right to decide where to shelter the growing numbers of refugees.

  23. BAGHDAD: Iraqi forces said Friday that Daesh fighters are withdrawing deep into the desert to escape an offensive aimed at a final defeat of the militants. Daesh has already been driven out of all of the towns it once held, but Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi has said he will not proclaim victory until the militants have been cleared from the western desert bordering Syria. The Hashed al-Shaabi (Popular Mobilisation) paramilitary force said its fighters had taken control of 77 villages and hamlets since the launch of the offensive on Thursday morning. It said five militants had been killed south of the ancient desert city of Hatra, but otherwise Daesh had put up little resistance. The Hashed said that its fighters overran an airfield in the same area, where they discovered underground warehouses used by the militants. Air support for the offensive, which also involves the army and federal police, has so far been provided exclusively by the Iraqi air force. The US-led coalition, which has provided air support for other offensives against Daesh in Iraq, said it carried out no strikes on Thursday. "We will provide strikes if we know that there is an ISIS (IS) cell, or tunnels, or something there," coalition spokesman US Colonel Ryan Dillon told AFP. "If the requests are not coming, we won't do a strike... it's supply and demand," he said. "And when you're in such a vast wide open desert area... there's less of a requirement for precision-guided missiles," unlike in urban areas. At its peak in 2014, Daesh ruled over seven million people in a territory as large as Italy encompassing large parts of Syria and nearly a third of Iraq. It is now being flushed out of its last desert hideouts in Iraq and under attack by Russian-backed government forces and US-backed Kurdish-led fighters in its last pockets of control in Syria.
  24. Spain?s Villarreal and France?s Nice were among the qualifiers for the knockout stage of the Europa League, with one game remaining to play, after wins on Thursday. Arsenal lost to Cologne 1-0 in Germany but still finish top of Group H while Hertha Berlin crash out of the competition after a 3-2 loss to Athletic Bilbao. Villarreal moved into the next round after beating Astana 3-2 to end the Kazakh club?s 17-game unbeaten run. Substitute Cedric Bakambu scored twice after being introduced on the hour to put Villarreal 3-1 up and an 88th-minute Patrick Twumasi goal for the hosts made no difference. Italian Mario Balotelli scored twice, including a penalty, for Nice as they went through from Group K with a 3-1 victory over Belgium?s Zulte Waregem. European debutants Ostersunds, who now top Group J with ten points, triumphed 2-0 at home to Ukrainian side Zorya Luhansk, taking the lead through an own goal from Dmytro Hrechyshkin in the 40th minute before a long-range effort from Saman Ghoddos secured the win 13 minutes from the end. Salzburg enjoyed a comfortable 3-0 win over Portugal?s Vitoria Guimares thanks to goals from Israeli Moanes Dabour, Andrea Ulmer and South Korean Hwang Hee-chan. Viktoria Plzen progress after a 2-0 win over Romania?s Steaua Bucharest which came after second-half goals from Milan Petrzela and Jan Kopic. Arsenal were already assured of progress before their trip to Germany but will still be disappointed to have a fallen to the Bundesliga?s bottom club. Sehrou Guirassy?s 62nd-minute penalty, after he was brought down by Mathieu Debuchy, was all that separated the two sides although Reiss Nelson and Jack Wilshere both went close to levelling in the final moments but were foiled by Cologne keeper Timo Horn. AC Milan, Everton and Olympique Lyon were all in action later on Thursday.
  25. Chelsea powered into the Champions League last 16 as Eden Hazard and Willian inspired a 4-0 thrashing of 10-man Qarabag on Wednesday. Antonio Conte's side reached the knockout stages with a game to spare thanks to influential displays from Hazard and Willian at the Olympic Stadium that knocked Azerbaijanis Qarabag out of the competition. Chelsea will go into their last Group C fixture against Atletico Madrid, who take on Roma at the Wanda Metropolitano later on Wednesday, on 10 points and still in with a chance of finishing top. Hazard scored Chelsea's first-half opener from the penalty spot after his pass to Willian provoked a foul on the Brazilian from Rashad Sadygov, who was sent off as a result. Willian doubled Chelsea's lead nine minutes before the interval, collecting Hazard's deft back-heeled pass before rolling home. Cesc Fabregas netted Chelsea's third from the spot in the 73rd minute after another foul on Willian, and the Brazil international crashed home his second in the closing moments. The English champions were heavily criticised after a woeful loss at Roma in their previous Champions League match, but have now won three in a row in all competitions. "We did everything well. We should have scored more. It is easy to play with these good players," Hazard said. "We have a big game at Liverpool on Saturday so it was good to have a small rest. We are ready for Saturday." Conte had bemoaned the fixture schedule that sends Chelsea to Liverpool for a crucial Premier League game on Saturday, just 48 hours after they return to London from the 5,000 mile (8,000 kilometres) round trip to Azerbaijan. But he still fielded a strong side, with David Luiz starting in defence for the first time since being dropped after a reported training ground row with the Blues boss following the Roma defeat. Michel rattles woodwork Conte's side had thrashed Qarabag 6-0 in September, but they almost fell behind early on in Baku when Maksim Medvedev was allowed to advance into the area with little resistance. Michel picked up possession and lashed a fierce shot against a post before the rebound was blazed over. Hazard was nominally Chelsea's central striker but the Belgian playmaker had freedom to roam and it was from a deeper position that he triggered his side's 21st-minute opener. Threading a pin-point pass behind the Qarabag defence, Hazard sent Willian clear on goal and the Brazil winger tumbled into the area after Sadygov grabbed at his arm. Referee Manuel de Sousa saw enough contact to give Chelsea the penalty and sent off Sadygov. Qarabag were furious but Hazard ignored their complaints to stroke home the spot-kick for his sixth goal in his last seven appearances. He followed the opener with an extravagant touch to help double Chelsea's lead in the 36th minute. Pedro started the swaggering move with a flick into the path of Willian, who guided the ball to Hazard. The Belgian baffled the Qarabag defence with a sublime back-heeled pass into Willian and he made no mistake with a clinical finish. Conte's team struck for a third time in the 73rd minute when Gara Garayev conceded a penalty with a tug on Willian. Fabregas's initial spot-kick was ruled out for encroachment, but the Spaniard was unflustered as he slotted home again. Chelsea weren't done and Willian capped the rout with a stinging strike from the edge of the area in the 85th minute.
