The best indoor workouts

Posted on by

first_imgIndoor workouts are perfect for monsoons and for those still suffering in the summer heat. Start with simple stretches.1. Jumpstart your day. Skipping for 15 minutes can burn up to 700 calories. It strengthens your joints and bones and works on your abs, back, legs and calf muscles. Start with 3 mins and work your way up slowly. 2. Step aerobics. All you need is a step bench, preferably with adjustable height, to increase the intensity of your workout. Turn on the music and watch your lower body muscles get taut and your metabolism and stamina increase. 3. Push-up challenge. Make sure that you do 80 to 200 push-ups with rest in between. If you’re not strong enough to do standard ones, do some kneeling push-ups or those on a chair. 4. Pump weights. Holding dumbbells, do a few sets of squats, bicep curls, lunges, tricep curls, push-ups, plies and overhead presses (look up old issues of prevention for details). A 25 to 30-minute workout is great to strengthen your arms and legs, tone your butt and shape your tummy. 5. Balancing act. With a stability ball you can do crunches, push-ups, abdominal rolls, limb extensions and more. It helps you work on every part of your body. 6. Exer-Bands. Perfect for indoor workouts (see Walk off Weight 3x Faster). Use them to tone your entire body. A 30-minute workout can burn up to 700 calories. 7. Calm and composed. Yoga can make you feel great. A 45-minute session can help you burn up to 700 calories. Try and remain active through the day and play with your children when you can. Have fun!advertisementNeesha Maria Bukht is a certified fitness trainer from the International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA). She works with Talwalkars Gym, Mumbai.

Yaya Toure backs Benjamin Mendy to make impact at Manchester City

Posted on by

first_imgManchester City’s new signing Benjamin Mendy has the potential to make a big impact next season but the defender must adapt to the demands of playing in the Premier League as quickly as possible, midfielder Yaya Toure has said.The French left-back joined City on a five-year deal earlier this week from Monaco, where he helped them win the Ligue 1 title and reach the Champions League semi-finals last season.Mendy is the third full-back to arrive at Man City in the close season following the arrival of Danilo from Real Madrid and Kyle Walker from Tottenham Hotspur.City are almost certain to rotate their full backs, with Danilo, who can play on both sides, acting as a cover for Mendy and Walker. Manager Pep Guardiola is also reported to be in the market for another right back to complete a very expensive set.”I know Mendy, because he’s French and he’s been playing for my former club Monaco. I think he’s a fantastic player,” Toure told Sky Sports.”You will see in the Premier League how powerful he is, how much energy he has. This guy is very exciting to see.”I hope he’s going to be fine in the Premier League, because it is such a tough league, and we all know you need to adapt for a month or so, or some players go on straight away.”I hope he can adapt as much as possible because we don’t have time.”Mendy, 23, has joined his new team mates in Los Angeles and could make his City debut in a pre-season friendly against Real Madrid later on Wednesday.advertisementlast_img read more

CSKA leads from tipoff to buzzer to stay perfect

Posted on by

first_imgThe last undefeated team left standing in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague is none other than CSKA Moscow after a 75-81 road victory over Olympiacos Piraeus in the Game of the Week on Thursday in which the champs led from the opening tip to the final buzzer. The score was deceptive as CSKA’s lead was 10 points or higher from the second quarter till the last couple of minutes. And even when Olympiacos came close at the end, Nando De Colo was on hand with a big shot for the champs. CSKA is 5-0 and broke the three-game winning streak of Olympiacos, whose record dropped to 3-2. De Colo, last season’s MVP, paced the winners with 23 points, 9 rebounds and 3 assists. Aaron Jackson and Kyle Hines scored 13 each, Andrey Vorontsevich 11 and Milos Teodosic 10 for the winners. Georgios Printezis was the big gun for Olympiacos with 26 points and 7 rebounds, while Vassilis Spanoulis scored 14 and Khem Birch 10.De Colo and Vorontsevich got CSKA off to a 6-0 start and soon Jackson lit up from the three-point line to make it 7-14. Printezis caught fire next for Olympiacos and cut the difference until his team was within 21-25 at the end of 10 minutes. While the its pass-masters took over – with De Colo sending a no-look pass and Teodosic one between a defender’s legs to Hines – so did CSKA’s defense held Olympiacos scoreless for the first 6 minutes of the second quarter, until Ioannis Papapetrou’s three-pointer made it 24-33. Before the half ended, it was Victor Khryapa feeding Hines for a dunk and CSKA’s high lead til then, 28-44, at the break. Olympiacos came out in the third quarter like a house on fire, scoring 11 points in less than 3 minutes as compared to 7 in the whole second quarter. But CSKA did not wilt and 5 points in a row by Vorontsevich sustained his team until threes by Teodosic, Jackson and De Colo restored a 51-66 advantage after 30 minutes. It was still 60-72 with under 4 minutes left, when Olympiacos began whittling away with all the points in an 13-3 run shared by Printezis and Erick Green that made it 74-77 with 1:17 to play. Hines came up with a huge offensive and hit 2 free throws, then Vorontsevich blocked a shot leading to 2 more by De Colo, defusing the drama.CSKA heads home to host Real Madrid in Round 6, while Olympiacos takes to the road against Galatasaray Odeabank Istanbul.Source: EuroleagueTweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

AA: Johannsson shines off bench, Wood struggles

Posted on by

first_imgUnited States Americans Abroad: Tale of two forwards as Johannsson plays hero while Wood struggles Ben Valentine Last updated 1 year ago 09:45 2/27/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Aron Johannsson Gotoku Sakai Werder Bremen Hamburg Lukas Schulze/Bongarts/Getty Images United States Bundesliga Werder Bremen v Hamburger SV Greuther Fürth v Eintracht Braunschweig IFK Göteborg v Öster Anderlecht v Royal Excel Mouscron Anderlecht Öster Werder Bremen Hamburger SV Eintracht Braunschweig Greuther Fürth IFK Göteborg Royal Excel Mouscron 2. Bundesliga Svenska Cupen First Division A Videos The two forwards began the Nordderby on the bench but one ended up the hero, while the other earned his share of the goat horns It was the best of times for Aron Johannsson. It was the worst of times for Bobby Wood.For Johannsson, the past few weeks have seen him emerge from the depths of the Werder Bremen bench to claim an unlikely place in the starting XI. Johannsson struggled last week in the loss to Freiburg, however, conceding the penalty that resulted in the only goal of the game.While Bremen coach Florian Kohfeldt was kind to Johannsson after the game, he ultimately decided to drop him from the XI for a Nordderby clash with Hamburg, with relegation implications on the line for both teams. Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Johannsson was not called upon until the 84th minute, with the match still scoreless, but he did not wait long before making an impact.Played in on goal just two minutes later, Johannsson tried blasting a shot at a somewhat narrow angle on Hamburg goalkeeper Christian Mathenia. Mathenia got a piece of it, but only enough to slow it down. That led to a race to the goal line for Bremen’s Ishak Belfodil and Hamburg’s Rick van Drongelen, with the ball ending up in the back of the net.Belfodil got the credit initially, but replays showed he never touched it — a good thing for Bremen considering he was in an offside position when Johannsson took the initial shot. Thus Van Drongelen was credited with the own goal — though in his defense, the shot was nearly over the line when he got to it and would have gone over if he did nothing.While Johannsson missed out on credit for the goal, he was obviously instrumental in creating it. It marks the third goal in Bundesliga play he’s been a part of in this recent stretch since he came on as a substitute against Schalke, even if he has not actually been credited with a goal or assist yet.It’s possible Johannsson’s place in the starting XI may rotate in the coming weeks as Bremen fight for survival. But it certainly looks like he’ll have a place in the rotation each week, which remains an impressive turnaround from where he stood just a month ago. Aron Jóhannsson played a big part in the game-winning goal for Werder Bremen!But should it have counted? 🤔 https://t.co/zDGScqmZki— FOX Soccer (@FOXSoccer) February 24, 2018On the other side, Bobby Wood also began the game on the bench. He came on as a substitute in the 77th minute and played a role in the Bremen winner as well.With Bremen coming toward goal, Hamburg attempted to clear. The ball came to Wood, who failed to hold up play, and instead had the ball knocked free of his control by Philipp Bargfrede. It was then Bargfrede who picked up possession just outside the area and fed the wide open Johannsson for his run on goal and the eventual winner.Perhaps it is unfair to fault Wood entirely there — it was not an easy ball to control and he had little time on it — but had his touch and positioning been a little better, he doesn’t lose it.So while Johannsson appears to be playing himself into a Bremen side that is slowly creeping away from potential relegation, Wood may well be playing himself out of a Hamburg side that is falling deeper into it.Bremen sits in 14th place on 26 points, just two above the relegation playoff spot of 16th, but nine above 17th place and an automatic trip to the 2.Bundesliga. Sitting in 17th place? Hamburg.Green helps secure big three pointsJulian Green Greuther FurthDown a level in Germany, Julian Green was also making contributions to his team’s survival hopes.The on-loan attacker delivered the assist on Greuther Furth’s opener against Eintracht Braunschweig. While it was not the winner as the hosts went on to a 2-1 victory, it still helped the side pick up a crucial three points in the race to escape dropping out of the 2.Bundesliga.Greuther Furth now sits on 27 points. That’s still in the relegation playoff, but the club is level on points with Bochum, which sits in 15th, and is within three points of 13th.It was only Green’s first assist of the season to go along with one goal. He hasn’t lit the world on fire there, but he’s started 15 of the team’s 24 contests and missed time with injury. So he’s managed to play consistently, getting valuable experience.Since Green is on loan from Stuttgart, relegation for Greuther Furth would not be the end of the world for him, but helping the side stay up as a regular starter, especially given the rough spot for the club when he arrived, certainly wouldn’t look bad on the resume.Things could be going better for fellow U.S. international Terrence Boyd, however. Darmstadt 98, which dropped from the Bundesliga last year, is looking like it may do the dreaded double drop this season. The Lillies are on 23 points, and in 18th place. Boyd has not found his way into the XI much, but has been appearing as a substitute. Carter-Vickers earns praise from managerCameron Carter-Vickers’ loan move to Ipswich may not have seen the defender secure the team results he and his teammates are looking for, but he is turning heads with his play.February saw the club pick up two wins, two draws and a loss in five games. Though that’s not a terrible spell, it won’t help Ipswich get into a playoff promotion spot. The club sits on 48 points, six back of sixth-place Bristol City. But more damaging perhaps than the points difference is that there are six teams between Ipswich and Bristol City.Carter-Vickers has earned plaudits from the coaching staff in the meantime. Initially lining up in a back four, the club has been using a back three in recent weeks, similar to what the defender saw with Sheffield United.Regardless of the formation, right now Ipswich manager Mick McCarthy believes Carter-Vickers needs to be in the XI.”Cameron played in a back three at Sheffield United [on loan earlier in the season] and [Luke Chambers] organizes them well,” McCarthy said in quotes published by the East Anglian Daily Times. “If I play three at the back then Adam [Webster] is in the team, but if I don’t then Cameron Carter-Vickers deserves to play because he’s been excellent.”While Carter-Vickers faces a battle to get into the first team at his parent club of Tottenham, playing well on Ipswich will give him more options this summer.Diskerud nets second time in two weeksMix Diskerud certainly looks to be pleased to be back in Sweden.One week after getting IFK Goteborg off to a winning start in the group stage of the Swedish Cup with a goal against Varberg in a 1-0 win, Diskerud helped his club secure a result.The midfielder found the back of the net in the 68th minute of his side’s cup clash with Oster, leveling the scoreline at 1-1. The result was enough to keep Gothenburg top of the group with two games played.Mixed fortunes in BelgiumIn Belgium, Kenny Saief had a direct hand in one of Anderlecht’s five goals this weekend, providing an assist on Lukasz Teodorczyk’s second goal of the game.Saief delivered a cross into the area that the striker put home to give the club a 3-0 lead. The game ended in a 5-3 Anderlecht win, leaving the club on 49 points, just one point back of Sporting Charleroi — though still 12 back of first place Brugge.Saief has started seven games since his January move, scoring a goal and adding two assists during that span. While the winger is a consistent starter for his side, other Americans in Belgium are not currently as fortunate.Youngster Erik Palmer-Brown took a step in the right direction with Kortrijk, making the gameday squad for the first time since his loan move in January. He has yet to play for the club, which sits in sixth place, just inside the playoff positions.Ethan Horvath, meanwhile, seems to have a good chance at picking up silverware this year with Brugge, but he doesn’t appear likely to play much more of a role in it. While Brugge’s goalkeeper situation has been a mess this season for a team doing as well as it has — the club is now on its fifth starter of the campaign — Horvath appears no closer to reclaiming the No. 1 role.last_img read more

Neymar: I’m not worth world-record €222m

Article continues below Editors’ Picks Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Sorry, Cristiano! Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now Arsenal would be selling their soul with Mourinho move The 26-year-old feels PSG paid over the odds for him, but says he has always wanted to be seen as a “special” player.”I’m not proud of the transfer fee, nor of the fact I’m the most expensive player ever,” he told  Spox .  “That’s just money and nothing else. I cannot help it. Personally, I would have paid less for myself.”I always wanted to be special. That was my goal very early – actually from the moment I started playing football for a club. That was at the age of 11. It may sound clumsy, but from then on I’ve tried to get better every single day and get to my best.”I really worked and sacrificed every day of my life to become a professional one day. That was the only dream I ever had. I dreamed of playing for Santos’s first team, being invited to the national team and one day going to Europe. It was not foreseeable at the time that I would succeed, but I kept thinking about it. There was nothing else for me.”I’m proud that I’ve achieved my childhood goal. That was, and is, most important to me. As a player you always have to show who you are and assert yourself. Just referring to the transfer fee does not help you and says nothing about how good you really are.”Brazil are hoping for a more successful World Cup campaign this year after crashing out at the semi-finals in 2014 with a 7-1 loss to Germany.Neymar missed that match four years ago due to a back injury, but still feels the hunger for revenge heading into the tournament in Russia .”I felt as beaten as the team was and was affected like everyone else,” he said. “The expectations on us in our own country were almost inhumanly high and Germany are an excellent opponent. “We knew it would be hard. Unfortunately, it went as it did. Now we finally have the opportunity to wipe out the last World Cup. Maybe we will meet Germany again – and then hopefully we will have a real revenge.”last_img read more

Parents sue tycoons firm over dysentery outbreak in Moscow

Posted on by

MOSCOW — Natalya Konkova got a call from her 5-year-old son’s day care centre at School No. 1357, asking her to pick up Yaroslav because he was running a fever and having trouble walking.He got worse over the next 24 hours, with severe diarrhea and vomiting, before an ambulance took him to a hospital. He was eventually diagnosed with dysentery.“I’ve never seen anything like this before. It was scary,” Konkova recalls.Yaroslav was one of 127 children aged 3 to 7 who were diagnosed with dysentery after eating food at seven state-run day care centres and kindergartens in Moscow in mid-December.While reports of dysentery are not new in Russia, they mostly have struck provincial areas far from the capital and in much smaller outbreaks. Even more unusual is that the catering firm blamed by opposition activists for the outbreak at six of the seven Moscow sites is owned by businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin, a close ally of President Vladimir Putin.Prigozhin, who has won $2 billion in contracts for supplying food to Moscow schools since 2009, built an empire on catering and maintenance contracts for the army and has been nicknamed “Putin’s chef” for serving Kremlin functions. He also has been reported to run a private military company known as Wagner that sends Russian contractors to Syria and other countries.The magnate was among the Russians indicted last year by a U.S. grand jury in the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller, alleging he funded the internet trolls involved in interfering with the U.S. presidential election in 2016. The U.S. also imposed sanctions on Prigozhin and two of his companies, Concord Catering and Concord Management and Consulting. Prigozhin has denied any involvement, and Putin said last year that while he knew the businessman, he “doesn’t count him” among his friends.Prigozhin’s company has denied it is to blame for the dysentery outbreak. The cases have caused an outcry, thanks to a lawyer who has turned a spotlight on the caterers and has mounted a campaign to help the parents whose children fell ill.Lyubov Sobol, who works for the investigative team of anti-corruption campaigner and opposition leader Alexei Navalny, documented Prigozhin’s rise from ex-convict in St. Petersburg to Putin’s Kremlin circle. She has taken up the case on behalf of the parents of the stricken children.She also has a personal interest in sanitary conditions at the schools, since her 5-year-old daughter attends a Moscow day care centre, although not one of those that were affected.Inna Chepeleva, whose daughter attended day care at School No. 1357 and came down with pneumonia attributed to the dysentery outbreak, said she was shocked at the refusal of officials there to explain what happened.“Something was going on, but we knew nothing,” she said.Even though 11 children at day care at School No. 1357 had symptoms consistent with dysentery, the day care centre wasn’t shut down for a quarantine for nearly three days.A month after Sobol began a campaign on the outbreak, which included a YouTube video that got more than 300,000 views, Russia’s chief investigative body launched a criminal inquiry into conditions at the day care centres.Separately, parents of 27 children filed a lawsuit against Moscow authorities and Concord Ready-Meals Factory. The trial was supposed to start in April but the court has suspended hearings for at least two months pending the official probe. Another group of parents filed a similar lawsuit last month.The Federal Consumer Oversight Agency confirmed 127 cases of dysentery. At public hearings in March, the capital’s chief sanitary official, Yelena Andreyeva, denied early reports that blamed it on cottage cheese supplied by a company from southern Russia. Health and education officials would not say whether the outbreak would make them reconsider signing new contracts with Concord.Six companies that are either directly owned by Prigozhin or affiliated with him have controlled almost all school and kindergarten catering in Moscow since 2011, providing prepared meals that can be reheated at school kitchens, according to public filings and the Spark-Interfax database.His companies also have other lucrative deals to cater to state-owned hospitals and clinics in Moscow and the region.Prigozhin and his representatives have rarely spoken to the media, but they invited the parents of two stricken children to tour one of their facilities. He also offered to pay compensation to the affected families as “financial aid,” Concord’s press office said, although his company denies it is to blame for the outbreak.Concord representative Yuri Ostyuk told The Associated Press that “it’s too early to talk about responsibility because the investigation is ongoing,” adding that the company has implemented measures, including more lab tests, to ensure food quality.In a written reply to Sobol’s complaint, the Consumer Oversight Agency said numerous inspections at Concord Ready-Meals Factory as well as other firms affiliated with Prigozhin found violations of “sanitary standards” and some of the food tests at its facilities and schools produced “unsatisfactory results.” The agency did not elaborate, and Concord did not immediately comment.Sobol alleges she has faced a smear campaign from Prigozhin-controlled media, most recently when the Federal News Agency, or FAN in Russian, reported she does not have a university degree, while she says she graduated from a top law school with honours.Anti-corruption campaigners like Sobol and Navalny have also complained of harassment from unidentified individuals. Both of them have worked on high-profile corruption investigations involving Russia’s political and business elite.When asked about reports of harassment and intimidation, Concord told the AP it was unaware of any, adding that Sobol has a “bad reputation in Russia.”Two employees of two school catering companies linked to Prigozhin — Moskovsky Shkolnik and Shkolnik-UZ — have cited lax sanitary standards and poor quality of food. The dysentery outbreak did not affect schools served by those two companies.Natalya Shilova, a former manager at Moskovsky Shkolnik, said in an interview broadcast in March that staff ignored food safety standards when she worked there in 2017. Her son was among the children diagnosed with dysentery and was hospitalized for months for complications from the illness.Moskovsky Shkolnik filed a defamation lawsuit last month against Shilova, as well as Sobol, Navalny and his anti-corruption foundation that released the video interview.Fyodor Mishenev, who worked in two management positions at Shkolnik-UZ between 2016 and 2018, documented sanitary problems, posting photos on Instagram of rotten apples, oranges with worms and kitchen staff smoking on the premises. He said some staff at Shkolnik-UZ had to buy their own gloves and detergent because of a lack of supplies, adding that he and his colleagues often scrubbed kitchens before state sanitary inspections.Representatives of Shkolnik-UZ could not be reached for comment, and Concord has denied any connection to the other firms supplying catering to Moscow schools and kindergartens, including Moskovsky Shkolnik and Shkolnik-UZ. Filings show that Prigozhin’s Concord Ready Meals and the other companies that supply catering to Moscow schools have listed the same phone number, share registration addresses or have had the same management.In making his accusations, Mishenev also said that the schools and parents bore some responsibility for making sure that authorities adhere to sanitary standards.“I don’t want to blame it all on Prigozhin or the government,” he says. “It’s our fault. We are not controlling them properly.”Young Yaroslav has developed pancreatitis, must take medication daily and has been advised to stay home because his immune system is too weak. His mother has had to quit her clerical job to care for him.He misses his friends, he said as he played with his favourite toy, a rubber scorpion, but does not want to go back to the school.“I’m scared,” Yaroslav said.___Video journalist Tanya Titova contributed to this story.Nataliya Vasilyeva, The Associated Press read more

A look at Pokemon Go and how it works

Posted on by

NEW YORK, N.Y. – Confused by the “Pokemon Go” mania sweeping the world?You’re not alone.For those who don’t know the difference between a Squirtle and a Zubat, here’s a look at the game, how to play it and some of the problems it’s causing.___WHAT IS IT AND HOW DO I GET IN ON IT?“Pokemon Go” is a free game app that you can download for your iOS or Android smartphone. The game asks players to wander their real-world neighbourhoods on the hunt for the animated monsters made famous years ago by cartoons, video games and trading cards. Players build their collections, make their Pokemon more powerful and do battle with those held by other players.Set up is relatively quick. You customize your avatar — choosing the colour of its hair and style of clothing — then set off on your adventures. Fans like how it takes gaming into the streets and gets people walking around outside instead of sitting in front of a console system hooked up to a TV.Part of the setup process also involves signing into the app with a Google account, at least unless you have an existing account with the Pokemon site’s own “training club .” (It’s rationing out new signups.) The Google sign in process prompted a backlash over privacy concerns, but we’ll get to that later.___SO, IN A NUTSHELL, HOW DO I PLAY?The app displays your avatar amid a grid of streets and other bits of geography, such as rivers and parks. It’s like a bare-bones version of Google Maps with a pretty sky above it. You can see in all directions by spinning your character around.But it takes a little getting used to. The streets don’t have names on them, making it tough to determine which way you need to walk until you actually start moving. (A compass icon points north, if you find that helpful.)Look around and you’ll see floating light-blue blocks that signify “Pokestops,” landmarks that could be anything from the entrance to a park to fancy stonework on a building. Tagging these spots with your phone earns you “Pokeballs,” which you can use to throw at, and ultimately collect, Pokemon, along with other items.The actual Pokemon — there are 128 initially listed in your profile’s “Pokedex” — also appear on your grid from time to time. Tapping on them brings them up on your screen, allowing you to fling your Pokeballs at them. The idea is to bop them on the head and capture them inside the ball.Fair warning, some Pokemon are easier to hit than others. Some can escape from Pokeballs, forcing you to re-capture them.___HOW DOES AUGMENTED REALITY FIT IN?The app makes it look like the Pokemon are right in front of you by using your phone’s camera to capture an image of the street and display the Pokemon on top of it. This has resulted in some pretty funny pictures on social media.But the augmented reality feature also makes it tougher to hit the Pokemon, because you have to point the phone at the beast’s supposed location. Turning the feature off by flipping the switch in the top right-hand corner of the screen puts Pokemon right in the middle of the screen, making them easier targets.___SOUNDS LIKE FUN. WHAT’S THE BIG PROBLEM?While it’s great that people are out walking and exploring, a lot of them are also walking — often the busy streets of big cities like New York — with their heads down and eyes glued to the screens.This has prompted worries about people walking into traffic, trespassing onto private property or finding themselves in unsafe situations. Many players are children, raising the anxiety level.Some real-world locations aren’t so keen on attracting players, either.Operators of the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum in Poland have asked that their site be removed from the game, saying that playing it at the former Nazi German death camp would be “disrespectful.” The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and Arlington National Cemetery have also asked visitors to refrain from playing.___IS THE APP ACTUALLY READING MY GMAIL?No. Well, at least, not anymore.When it first launched, the app asked users who signed in with Google for access to their accounts, but didn’t specify that it was asking for access to their entire account including their Gmail, Google documents, Google search history and maps.The backlash was a strong one. Niantic, the game’s developer, said Monday that it never intended to request such sweeping data access and hadn’t collected information beyond the user’s ID and email address. And on Tuesday, it issued an update that pared back the authorization in the Google sign in to just that data.___Follow Bree Fowler at https://twitter.com/APBreeFowler.

A Greek Christmas

Posted on by

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram As the countdown to the end of the year begins, preparations for Christmas and the holiday season are taking shape. Many Greeks in the Australian diaspora still don’t feel very festive in the summer, as their memories of Christmas tend to feature cold weather. In Greece, Christmas (or Christougena) lasts for around a month. The festive season starts on 6 December, which is the Feast of St Nicholas day. The Christmas season officially lasts until 6 January (Feast of Epiphany). Children will visit their neighbours singing carols (or kalanda in Greek) that have been passed down from generation to generation. The Christmas holidays (from work and school) typically involves families gathering together. Some families escape the big cities and visit their vacation house in regional areas or on the islands. It is not uncommon for Greek families to own a vacation house in another part of the country, unlike here in Australia, where it’s something usually restricted to the wealthy. The reason that so many families do have vacation homes in Greece is simply because the homes were passed down in families. A son or daughter who may be gifted their parents’ home in the town where they grew up may not wish to live there. They may have already established a life and career in one of the big cities (Athens, Thessaloniki or Patras). Rather than selling the home (because of a slow property market and sentimental reasons), they will return to the house during their holidays. Visits would typically be during the summer holidays and at Christmas time. Unlike here in Australia, where gifts are opened on Christmas Day (usually very early in the morning if there are kids involved), in Greece gifts are exchanged on Christmas Eve. Saint Vasilis is Greece’s answer to Santa Claus, and he delivers presents to children on Christmas Eve. Also on Christmas Eve, families will bake a special festive loaf of bread called Christopsomo, literally ‘Christ Bread’, featuring a sign of the cross imprinted on it before it goes in the oven. The bread is shared among the family on Christmas Day.Christmas Day is reserved for a meal with the family. Rather than turkey, families will share a leg of lamb on a spit (souvla), with vegetables and rice, followed by special festive cakes, melomakarouna and kourapiedes. Laughter and eating is accompanied by music and dancing. It is truly a joyful time to spend with loved ones. Families in the diaspora who wish to bring some traditional Greek customs into their Christmas celebration may prepare a typical Greek Christmas lunch, and dig out the recipe for Christopsomo! There is one you can try at www.greekfood.about.com/od/greekchristmasrecipes/r/Greek-Christmas-Bread…Orthodox Churches all over the world will offer a Christmas Day service that everyone is welcome to attend. Most of all, the true spirit of Christmas, celebrating love and family, as well as the life of Jesus, can be achieved equally as joyously both here and in Greece. I hope yours is truly special. Kala Christouyenna! * As a special Christmas gift to the Neos Kosmos community, I am delighted to offer either of my books for just $10 each. Buy just one or both of them for a total of $20. The books make a beautiful Christmas gift, with a unique taste of Greece for the child in your life. www.melinamallos.comlast_img read more

This Electric Van Is Also a Rolling Airport for Delivery Drones

Posted on by

first_img Just about everyone in the logistics business is rolling out electrified vans. EV Maker Workhorse wants to help companies make the switch, and the model they’re offering up has a pretty cool trick up its sleeve.Delivery companies that want to fully modernize their operations can order the N-Gen van with a roof doubles as a flight deck for drones. Workhorse has been developing this rooftop drone dispatching system since 2015. They call it (wait for it) HorseFly.The van itself maybe isn’t as sexy as a Tesla or a Vortex GT-EV, and that’s fine. This is a hard-working van designed to help hard-working men and women get things done — while reducing their carbon footprint at the same time.The new N-Gen can be equipped with a 700 or a sprawling 1,000 cubic foot box. It can cover 100 miles on a single charge, and Workhorse sells an optional range extender for those who want to maximize time between recharges. Its tight, 26-foot turn radius is better than any other van in its class, according to Workhorse.Workhorse has already convinced at least one major shipping industry player of HorseFly’s potential. Back in September, UPS and WorkHorse teamed up on a public demonstration of the system. When the van comes to a stop, its cargo is loaded up, the roof hatch opens, and the drone flies off to make the delivery. When it’s done, it returns to the van for its next assignment.The drone allows for more efficient use of the van driver’s time. They’re capable of reaching speeds of 50MPH, can lift a parcel weighing up to ten pounds, and are designed to make deliveries within the FAA’s prescribed 2-mile line of sight radius.Workhorse is already working to secure FAA approval, and the company is hopeful that HorseFly will be making commercial deliveries this Christmas season.

CocaCola to offer coffee milk as breakfast beverage Report

Posted on by

first_imgCoca-Cola, the world’s largest soft-drink maker, is planning to add coffee and milk products to its range of offerings in the breakfast beverage sector. The Atlanta-headquartered company already sells juice, tea and mineral water. “Those were the two last frontiers in the beverage sector,” Vice President of new businesses at Brazil Sandor Hagen told Bloomberg. He said the cola giant was expected to kick start sales of packaged coffee beans of the Arabica variety in Brazil, and is also finalising a deal to acquire a dairy products maker in the South American country.Brazil is the world’s largest producer of coffee beans, including the Arabica that is also coffee giant Starbuck Corp.’s preferred variety. However, those beans are hardly savoured domestically as most of it is exported abroad. Coca-Cola plans to sell that export quality coffee beans to Brazilians. With its premium blends of Arabica beans, the company seeks to cater to the high-end coffee lovers.Coca-Cola’s sale of packaged beans will be under a local tea brand called Leaos that the company owns in Brazil. The company has also partnered with a local brand cum coffee exporter to acquire and roast the coffee beans.As the company today invests in R&D to create low sugar content products, it is also seeking to promote zero or light products, especially at urban centres that have become more health or diet driven, the company had said in an earlier.last_img read more

In July 2008, The MarkeTech Group (TMTG) launched imagePRO(TM) the first longitudinal opt-in panel of over 600 U.S.-hospital based imaging administrative directors and managers. ImagePRO members have agreed to participate in TMTG surveys and polls and have been carefully selected to accurately represent the hospital imaging market.Over the past several months, TMTG polled the imagePRO panel twice (once in November 2008 and again in February 2009), regarding the economic crisis and its impact on imaging equipment purchasing and utilization patterns. While the overall outlook from imagePRO panel members is increasingly pessimistic, there still exists a sense that the climate will eventually turnaround.The anticipated medical imaging utilization during this same period is somewhat at odds with these 2009 purchasing plans. Only 27.6 percent anticipate that imaging utilization will decrease by 10 percent or more in 2009 (Exhibit B). This data suggests a “wait and see” attitude in terms of capital spending. This CFO-level defensive purchasing strategy can be explained by multiple factors: more difficult access to capital due to tighter credit, decreased revenue either from reimbursement or foundation grants (especially not-for-profit institutions) and general uncertainty around pending healthcare reforms. Because the imagePRO panel represents approximately 25 percent of the nation’s hospital imaging purchasing base, polls and surveys fielded with this panel are of extremely high quality in terms of reliability and market representativeness.imagePRO is a registered trademark (TM).For more information: www.themarketechgroup.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Video Player is loading.Pierre Qian explains radiotherapy to ablate VTPlay VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 7:34Loaded: 2.19%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -7:34 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Fed officials in June wary of looming economic risks

Posted on by

first_imgWASHINGTON (AP) — Federal Reserve policymakers last month saw signs that the economy was healing after its winter slump but agreed that there were still too many uncertainties at home and abroad to raise interest rates.Minutes of the June 16-17 discussions released Wednesday showed that while one Fed official was ready to begin hiking rates at the meeting, “most participants” believed that conditions were not yet ripe for an interest rate increase. Early signs of cataracts in your parents and how to help 5 people who need to visit the Ultrastar Multi-tainment Center Mesa family survives lightning strike to home Comments   Share   4 ways to protect your company from cyber breaches Top Stories Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facilitycenter_img New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies The Fed’s policy statement and comments made by Fed Chair Janet Yellen at her news conference supported many economists’ views at the time that the central bank was moving closer to raising interest rates for the first time in nearly a decade. Many analysts pegged September.However, recent events including the Greek debt crisis, plunging stock values in China and a somewhat disappointing June jobs report in the United States have led many economists to push back the date of the first rate hike.The developments overseas are already affecting global financial markets and could hurt the U.S. economy, in part by pushing the value of the dollar higher and dragging U.S. exports. A stronger dollar also lowers U.S. inflation at a time when the Fed would like to see inflation move closer to its target of 2 percent annual price increases.Brian Bethune, an economics professor at Fisk University in Boston, said he believed the recent developments, including the disappointing June jobs report, had greatly reduced the chance of a September rate hike. The Fed’s next meeting is July 28-29, but economists had already ruled out the possibility of a rate increase then.“I think the earliest window for a Fed rate increase will be December,” Bethune said. “There are just too many problems right now in China and too many problems in Europe. A rate hike would be another shock to the system.” Sponsored Stories Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall The minutes revealed that many Fed officials expressed concern about the impact a failure to reach a deal on Greek debt might have on financial markets. They also mentioned concerns about future growth in China and other emerging markets.While private economists had expected the Fed’s first rate hike to occur in September, the recent standoff on Greek debt and the sharp plunge in Chinese stock prices — which emerged after the Fed’s June gathering — have prompted many analysts to expect a delay until the end of the year.“Since the June meeting, much has changed on the world stage, none of it particularly good for the U.S. economy,” said Sal Guatieri, senior economist at BMO Capital Markets.The minutes of the June meeting were released with the customary three-week lag after the meeting. The Fed took note in its policy statement of the rebound that had occurred in the U.S. economy since it stalled in the first quarter.It highlighted progress in various sectors including manufacturing and housing. The Fed officials said that the cumulative gains in the job market over the past year had been “substantial” but that they wanted to see further progress, including evidence of stronger wage growth. Financial markets are awaiting a speech Yellen is scheduled to give Friday for an updated assessment on her views of the economy. In addition, she will deliver the Fed’s mid-year outlook on the economy during two days of testimony next week before House and Senate committees.Paul Ashworth, chief U.S. economist at Capital Economics, said that markets will put greater weight on Yellen’s upcoming comments than on the views expressed in the minutes, given all the developments since the meeting.The minutes did say the Fed had adopted a staff proposal that when the central bank does start raising rates, it will also release an “implementation note” that will describe the specific measures the Fed will employ to achieve its target for its key policy lever, the federal funds rate. That overnight bank borrowing rate has been at a record low near zero since December 2008.Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

in farming WaterFX’s technology uses a solar thermal troughcurved mirrors that concentrate the power of the sunto evaporate salty water The condensate that’s later collected and cooled becomes freshwater leaving salt and other impurities behind “Solar stills are an old technology but this has a new twist that makes it very efficient and very cost effective” says Aaron Mandell the CEO of WaterFX Because it uses solar power WaterFX’s desalination has virtually no carbon footprint and the company says that it has a 93% recovery rate much higher than conventional desalination But its biggest advantage might be its modularityWater FX’s solar stills can be set up locally allowing farms to recycle their own runoff rather than having freshwater pumped in from afar That saves energy and money “You can create a closed loop where the water is reused over and over again” says Mandell Right now the company is working on a pilot with the Panoche Water District in the Central Valley producing almost 500 gallons of clean water a day WaterFX has plans to expand to a commercial plant with a 2 million gallon capacity Of course the technology would have to be scaled up massively to even make a dent in California’s irrigation needs given that the state sends billions and billions of gallons of water to farms each year But if California really is on the edge of a great dry every

editors@timecomWashington:ADutch attorney who lied to federal agents investigating former Donald Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort was sentenced on Tuesday to 30 days in prison in the first punishment handed down in the special counsel’s Russia investigation He was also ordered to pay a $20000 fine Alex van der Zwaan’s sentence could set a guidepost for what other defendants charged with lying in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation may receive when their cases are resolved Among them are a former White House national security adviser and a Trump campaign foreign policy aide Van der Zwaan 33 had faced up to six months in prison under federal sentencing guidelines and his attorneys had pushed for him to pay a fine and leave the country But US district Judge Amy Berman Jackson citing the need to deter others from lying in an investigation of international importance said incarceration was necessary Alex van der Zwaan left leaves Federal District Court in Washington on Tuesday AP "These were not mistakes These were lies" Jackson told van der Zwaan as he stood before her Being able to "write a check and walk away" she added later would not fit the seriousness of the crime or send the right message The criminal case against van der Zwaan is not directly related to Russian election interference the main focus of Mueller’s probe But it has revealed new details about the government’s case against Manafort and opened a window into the intersecting universes of international law foreign consulting work and politics The case has also exposed connections between senior Trump campaign aides including Rick Gates and Russia Just last week the government disclosed that van der Zwaan and Gates spoke during the 2016 presidential campaign with a man Gates had previously described as having ties to the GRU Russia’s military intelligence agency Gates is now cooperating with Mueller During the hearing on Tuesday van der Zwaan made only a brief statement telling Jackson "Your Honor what I did was wrong I apologise to the court I apologise to my wife" Van der Zwaan who was fired in 2017 by the high-powered international law firm Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom admitted in February to lying to federal agents about his contacts with Gates and the person with ties to Russian intelligence Van der Zwaan had previously grown close to Manafort Gates and the person Konstantin Kilimnik during his work on a 2012 report commissioned by the Ukrainian Ministry of Justice The report written by the law firm was about the corruption trial of former Ukrainian prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko Kilimnik who was born in Ukraine while it was a Soviet republic has previously denied having any relation to Russian intelligence services Though prosecutors did not take a position on whether van der Zwaan should be locked up they stressed that he had lied "repeatedly" to investigators "This is not an isolated instance of bad judgment or criminal conduct" prosecutor Andrew Weissmann said Van der Zwaan’s attorneys argued that he had suffered enough already His life has been destroyed by his "terrible decision" to lie to federal authorities they said The attorneys pushed Jackson to allow van der Zwaan to return to London where he lives with his wife who is going through a difficult pregnancy "He has been here well over four months without a home without his wife and without his family" his attorney William Schwartz said "He is literally in limbo" Schwartz stressed that his client had made the effort to return to the US to "correct the record" after he lied to the special counsel’s office though prosecutors took issue with the characterisation noting that van der Zwaan was under a grand jury subpoena at the time Jackson said she recognised that van der Zwaan has been away from his family for months but the defense’s attempts to paint him as a tragic figure didn’t ring true "This is not something that happened to him He did not suffer unavoidable circumstances of tragedy This is something he did" she said Jackson also said his signs of remorse were relatively "muted" He didn’t write a letter to the judge as his family and friends did and hasn’t used his time in the US to perform community service or other good deeds to make up for his actions she said In addition to the prison time and fine Jackson imposed two months of supervised released She allowed him to voluntarily surrender to prison authorities The sentencing came just hours after another development in the special counsel’s investigation In a court filing late Monday prosecutors revealed that Deputy Attorney-General Rod Rosenstein had in August explicitly authorized the special counsel to investigate allegations that Manafort colluded with the Russian government Manafort has challenged Mueller’s authority and asked a judge to dismiss charges against him that include acting as an unregistered foreign agent and conspiring to launder tens of millions of dollars he received from his Ukrainian political consulting He said Mueller overstepped his bounds by charging him for conduct that occurred years before the 2016 presidential election But in their new filing prosecutors revealed that Rosenstein — who appointed Mueller — specifically authorised the investigation of any crimes related to payments Manafort received from the Ukrainian government during the tenure of former Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych The description largely captures the charges against him Rosenstein also empowered Mueller to investigate allegations Manafort "committed a crime or crimes by colluding with Russian government officials" to interfere with the presidential election None of the charges Manafort faces alleges coordination with the Kremlin He has pleaded not guilty and denied any wrongdoing related to Russian election interference Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday appealed to the youth of Jammu and Kashmir to choose progress over

that I-words work differently than people would likely expect People who are insecure and self-deprecating tend to use a lot of I-words while people who are confident or lying tend to drop them After examining a transcript of Christies presser Pennebaker tells TIME that his use of first-person pronouns is in a "high-normal" range "The way he is using I-words is consistent with someone who is self-focused and self-reflective perhaps guilty anxious and even self-effacing" he says "The overall tone of the press conference is not one of arroganceat least as measured by I-word usage" Determining someones state of mind through their use of pronouns is still a far cry from declaring their character The suggestion that Christie showed his egomaniacal colors through pronouns in his mea culpa is "like accusing someone of lying because he blinks so often when (a) he doesnt blink especially often and (b) blinking a lot is not a reliable sign of lying anyhow" Liberman says Thats not

language For the previous post click here Write to Katy Steinmetz at katysteinmetz@timecomBengaluru: A day after the BJP candidate announced that he had withdrawn from Ramanagara Assembly bypolls the party on Friday petitioned the Election Commission requesting it to "annul" the 3 November election immediately as the poll process has been "vitiated" The BJP also demanded that leaders of Congress-JD(S) coalition including Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy be booked under relevant provisions of law for allegedly acting in "collusion" to ensure that there is no contest In a major embarrassment for the BJP two days before the Ramanagara assembly bypoll L Chandrashekhar its candidate against Kumaraswamy’s wife quit the contest Thursday and returned to the Congress Representational image AFP With the BJP candidate withdrawing Anita Kumaraswamy is expected to have smooth sailing In its petition to the Commission the BJP alleged that the developments are the "convergence of undue influence" practised by Chandrashekar Congress’ Bengaluru Rural MP DK Suresh Anita Kumaraswamy and the chief minister "Hence it is also a convergence of fraud and horse-trading of a candidate" "We request you to kindly book cases against them under relevant provisions of the Law for offences against elections under section 171 of the IPC and for undue influence and corrupt practices under the Representation of People Act" the party said "Further we request you to annul the elections immediately and forthwith and restore the faith of people in democracy" it added Chandrashekhar son of senior congress leader CM Lingappa had joined the BJP as the Congress decided to support the candidate of its ruling coalition partner JD(S) Within days of joining the BJP he was announced as the party’s candidate for the bypoll In the petition submitted to Chief Electoral Officer Sanjiv Kumar by party MLC and spokesperson Ashwath Narayan along with others the BJP said Chandrashekar’s act interferes and violates the "free and absolute right" of BJP voters to cast their votes It said as the officially nominated BJP candidate withdrew and joined the Congress there is no BJP candidate and even though there is a name on the ballot paper it is merely a show piece as the candidate himself has left the BJP and joined the Congress "When the candidate has left the BJP and joined the Congress his name in the voters ballot as BJP candidate has no meaning Therefore the entire election process is vitiated" it added By-election to Ramanagara was necessitated after Kumaraswamy gave up the seat preferring Chennapatna the other seat he had won in the May assembly polls If women’s tennis needed an advertisement for tenacity the Australian Open final was it In Caroline Wozniacki and Simona Halep they had not just the top two players in the world but athletes who were driven to that one dream Both had been in Grand Slam finals and lost Both had held the World No 1 ranking and had been questioned Both had been down match points earlier in the tournament and survived They had come too far to back down That desire to finally seize the day win the trophy was raw throbbing and for all to see Caroline Wozniacki (left) is congratulated by Simona Halep after winning the women’s singles final on Saturday AP It transformed them into fearsome competitors For two hours and 49 minutes they were locked in a battle of wills The 26-year-old Halep battled leg injury and blocked out the physical exhaustion of the fortnight from her mind She ran on fumes and sometimes on one leg But on a muggy evening in Melbourne Wozniacki would just not be moved She had an answer to everything Halep asked of her and finally emerged a 7-6 (2) 3-6 6-4 winner “It was such a tough grind It was very hot out there I think both of us were very tired in the end” said Wozniacki who took over the World No 1 ranking from Halep “At the same time we fought our hardest and I’m very proud to be here with the trophy I knew going into the match that one of us is going to be extremely excited and very happy and the other one is going to be very disappointed very sad I obviously feel very sad for her but at the same time you know I’m very happy for myself” The victory also helped Wozniacki put the Slam credentials question away once and for all The Dane had first ascended to the World No 1 ranking in October 2010 but the lack of a Major trophy has constantly clouded her achievements But like her game Wozniacki’s is a tale of persistence She fought through the nagging doubts careless taunts frustrating injuries and entered 43 Grand Slam competitions before she was finally crowned champion “Honestly I think that’s one of the most positive things about all of this I’m never going to get that question again” the 27-year-old said Six years since she was dethroned Wozniacki will back to the top of the rankings with this triumph With so much on the line Wozniacki had entered the nervy contest on Saturday steady as a heartbeat A strong service game was followed by a quick break of serve As if connected to an internal radar the Dane tracked down Halep’s line of attack and returned clean between the lines A poor service game at 5-3 gave the Romanian a chance at a comeback but Wozniacki quickly slammed the door on it in the tie-break Before the start of the final Halep’s coach Darren Cahill had said that his ward would have to “be brave” in key moments to win her maiden Grand Slam But even the veteran Australian coach could not have anticipated the reserves of courage Halep tapped into on the evening The little Romanian with a big heart kept fighting for her dream when she was down kept fighting for it even when she was almost out She had been on painkillers since sustaining an ankle injury in the first round and had been taken to the absolute brink by Lauren Davies and Angelique Kerber fighting back from match points in both the matches and winning them 15-13 and 9-7 in the decider respectively As the second set neared the pointy end it looked like Halep’s failing body could take no more Perhaps distracted by the physical agony of her opponent Wozniacki slightly let up How was Halep running when she could even barely stand In a bid to keep the points short she jumped into attack The Romanian survived an 11-minute service game and while serving for the set at 5-3 saved three break points before getting through Wozniacki’s defences “I felt ready (for the final) But the body was not ready because I had so many long matches” said Halep “The muscles were tired The feet were not good enough But mentally I was ready I feel that I can face any challenge I can play against anyone I can win against anyone But just sometimes is not how you want because you cannot physically do it” With the temperature refusing to drop under 30 in the evening WTA’s heat rule came into play and players got a reprieve for 10 minutes In an extraordinary third set where there were seven breaks of serve Wozniacki kept her cool to sneak through The last two points — and in the end analysis Wozniacki had won only two more points than the Romanian — summed up the match Though her lead left leg couldn’t take the load anymore Halep served gustily look the first strike in the rally But Wozniacki hared around the baseline getting to everything putting the ball in play till she found a backhand to bring her back on equal ground and wait for Halep to fall Two forced forehand errors from the Romanian sealed the deal Wozniacki crashed onto the court in a pool of emotion as the crowd got onto its feet to applaud the effort of both players The final had capped off a fortnight of incredible comebacks and epic struggles When Wozniacki took the Daphne Akhurst trophy for a lap of honour Neil Diamond’s ‘Sweet Caroline’ thrummed on the loud speakers at the Rod Laver Arena Good times had never seemed so good For the Dane or for women’s tennis PARIS (Reuters) – President Emmanuel Macron has ratcheted up warnings about the rising threat of far-right nationalism saying in an interview with a regional French newspaper that complacency was what allowed for the rise of Hitler and Mussolini Speaking to Le Courrier Picard a newspaper that covers northern France where Macron has been visiting World War One memorials the president was challenged over comparisons he has made between current events and the 1930s in Europe The newspaper asked if he wasn’t exaggerating by comparing right-wing nationalists today to Germany’s Nazis or Italy’s fascists saying he was "distorting the historical record" "The times are different" Macron acknowledged "But who won the last European elections in France The National Front which everyone seems to have just gotten used to Who came second in the last regional elections in northern France The National Front Who made it through to the second round of the presidential election The National Front" he said The National Front has since been renamed The National Rally by its leader Marine Le Pen who lost resoundingly to Macron in the run-off of the May 2017 presidential election Le Pen’s party now leads Macron’s En Marche in the polls ahead of the European Parliament election next May [nL8N1XE0GJ] Macron warned that if someone suggests that far-right nationalists are less threatening nowadays than they were in the past one runs the risk of becoming complacent towards them "I would suggest that you reread what was said at the time" the 40-year-old president said "Well-educated well-informed people said that we could get along with the nationalists As I recall nobody not even the wealthiest and the best educated blocked the rise of Hitler in one country and Mussolini in another "I want to draw everyone’s attention to this point Is it the case that nationalist sentiments are rising Yes Are the people who are pushing for a return to conflict not those who are gaining ground in a number of European countries Yes" Macron who has introduced a raft of economic reforms since becoming president but saw his popularity fall to a new low of 21 percent last week has cast the European Parliament election as a showdown between pro-European "progressives" like himself and EU-sceptic populists on the far-right Those forces are arguably strongest in France and Italy where Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini’s League party has gained support as its leader goes head-to-head with Brussels Macron said the world was seeing a resurgence of authoritarianism with the risk of arms proliferation "We must look these (nationalisms and extremes) in the face and tackle the root causes of the inequalities that exist" said "That’s what I’m trying to do" (Writing by Luke Baker; Editing by Geert De Clercq) This story has not been edited by Firstpost staff and is generated by auto-feed Frank Bruni wrote that Christie "found a way to spell apology
