MISS AMERICA IS NOT AMERICAN – YouTube

 

I’m thinking, if the same had happened in India, how would we react. Will we accept a girl from Pakistan to be a Miss India? I don’t think so. How about a girl from Bangladesh or Sri Lanka or China? No way, I respect Americans in the way they’ve embraced us Asians and people from all over the world to stay in their country and make money and fame. My respects to USA!

 

Delhi gang rapists sentenced to death

Indian police stand guard outside the Saket Court complex in New Delhi, on September 13, 2013. A judge has sentenced four men to death for the fatal gang rape of an Indian student on a bus last December, triggering applause inside the packed courtroom.

An Indian judge on Friday sentenced to death four men convicted of the fatal gang rape of a student on a New Delhi bus, fulfilling the dying wish of the 23-year-old victim.

The packed courtroom burst into applause as Judge Yogesh Khanna announced his sentence. The defendants — lowly paid migrants to New Delhi mostly in their 20s — broke down in tears and one of them, gym assistant Vinay Sharma, howled loudly before he was led away by police.

The judge told the fast-track court in the south of the capital that the case, which sparked widespread anger against the treatment of women, fell into the "rarest of rare category" which justified capital punishment.

"In these times when crimes against women are on the rise, courts cannot turn a blind eye to this gruesome act," he announced.

The mother of the victim told reporters that she was delighted the judge had ordered their deaths by hanging.

"We are happy that in the end we got justice. My daughter wanted them to be given the death sentence," she told reporters, wearing a green saree and flanked by her husband and sons.

There had been a huge clamour for the four — Sharma, Akshay Thakur, Pawan Gupta, and Mukesh Singh — to be executed for their attack on the physiotherapy student and her male companion on December 16.

The victim, who cannot be named for legal reasons, died of grievous …

World judo champion Shohei Ono has been suspended from his university for physically abusing junior members of the judo squad, an official said Friday, reigniting controversy over violence in Japanese sport.

The episode is yet more bad news for a sport that has been dogged in recent years by scandal.

The official at Tenri University, which has produced several Olympic and world judo gold medallists, said that Ono and four other fourth-year teammates had been suspended for 30 days for smacking and/or kicking freshmen members of the team.

Seven others were also disciplined.

Team captain Ono, 21, who won the 73-kilogramme title at last month’s world championships in Rio de Janeiro, was found to have slapped

Maasai Cricket Warriors: ‘Bowling is just like throwing a spear’ – CNN.com

 

London, England (CNN) — The London sun is high when the bare-chested young men step onto the carefully manicured pitch, draped in flowing red cloaks and several layers of colorful beads. A few years ago they hadn’t even held a cricket ball, let alone played in a competitive match, yet here they are today, entering the game’s most famous venue to a flurry of cheers.

From a remote corner in Kenya to Lord’s cricket ground in the UK, known as the spiritual home of cricket, it’s been a long journey for the Maasai Cricket Warriors, a team of young tribesmen attending "Last Man Stands," a global championship event for amateur squads from around the world.

It all started six years ago thanks to the efforts of Aliya Bauer, a South African woman who’d gone to Kenya’s Laikipia region to work on a primate research program. Whilst studying the behavior of baboons, Bauer was finding it hard to live without her big love: cricket.

"I was missing my passion and I just wanted…

The 10 Most Irritating Phrases Ever! Don’t Use Them | LinkedIn

Very interesting read…

2aee84b The 10 Most Irritating Phrases Ever! Dont Use Them | LinkedIn

Whether you are at work or at home, with colleagues or friends, there are some words or phrases that can drive the people around you to complete insanity. Especially if you use them again, and again and again!

The trouble with these words is that they are not something we have carefully chosen to most eloquently make a point. No, they are just filler words that we got into the habit of using. They often don’t mean anything, they are just there to irritate.

In some people the use of these repetitive, nothing-saying, filler-words has reached epidemic proportions. I believe we need to cure this and stop using them. When I say stop using them I don’t mean completely. I don’t mind if someone uses them appropriately. I use most of them. What we have to stop is using them repeatedly and without meaning!

But then, maybe it’s just me? Maybe I am the only one that gets irritated by that? Or do you get annoyed and tired of hearing someone talk like this:

To be honest, at the end of the day you are literally going get into trouble, seriously. I mean, you better be careful, if you know what I mean. I am just saying.

Or this:

Awesome! This is, like, I mean, totally seriously, like, the most epic band I have ever heard. You know what I’m saying. I am literally going to, like, die if I can’t go and see them.

Groupon’s Indian website was recently brought down by onions. According to Al Jazeera America, the daily deals site offered a discount on onions, one of the country’s most popular and important food items, in an attempt to gain consumer attention. But the price cut on Groupon offered was so good that it resulted in a flood of traffic that temporally overloaded the company’s servers, crashing the site.


Groupon was selling onions at a price of 9 rupees per kilogram, which equates …

Will Belgium win the World Cup?

No. But the fact that a nation with a population of just 11 million people is being mentioned as World Cup dark horses is nothing short of remarkable given Belgium have failed to qualify for their last five major tournaments.

Marc Wilmots’ side top their European qualifying group and even if they lose to Croatia in the next game, victory in their final game –- at home to Scotland –- will take Belgium to the World Cup finals in Brazil next year.

The assorted talents of Vincent Kompany, Kevin De Bruyne, Eden Hazard, Simon Mignolet, Thomas Vermaelen, Marouane Fellaini, Kevin Mirallas, Romelu Lukaku, Jan Vertonghen, Moussa Dembele and Christian Benteke are players well known to English Premier League watchers.

But the depth of Wilmots’ squad is demonstrated by the likes of Atletico Madrid’s goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois – on loan from Chelsea – and defender Toby Alderweireld, Zenit St Petersburg midfielder Axel Witsel, Napoli forward Dries Mertens and Cagliari midfielder Radja Nianggolan.

“We knew Belgium had a good team,” former Standard Liege coach Jose Riga told CNN. “But the surprise has been the way the team has played
