first_imgEngland avenged their U-17 Euro loss by staging a 5-2 comeback win over Spain in the final of the FIFA U-17 World Cup at the Vivekanada Yuvabharti Krirangan in Kolkata on Saturday.Spain had defeated England on penalties earlier in May but the Three Lions’ fluid and pacey attack made sure that they became the World champions, the ninth different team to win in U-17 age category.Foden fittingly scored England’s fifth and last goal to lift a first FIFA U-17 World Cup in their history. Hudson-Odoi made a smart run and then placed the ball to find Foden unmarked, who sent the English fans all over the world in jubilation. Congratulations, @England! ???2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup champions ??????#FIFAU17WC?????? pic.twitter.com/G9mE0TI2tc- #FIFAU17WC ????????? (@FIFAcom) October 28, 2017The game was starting to run into mayhem as the Spanish got increasingly frustrated by England’s pace and finishing.The game got off to a lively start with both teams exchanging opening blows but it was Spain who got the lead. In a lighting counter-attack after Guehi lost possession in midfield, Spanish skipper Abel Ruiz latched onto the ball and moved it swiftly to Gelabert in the middle. He squared the ball cleanly to Sergio Gomez who slotted it past Anderson.Mohamed Moukhliss had the golden opportunity to help Spain double the lead in the 21st minute. He was through on goal with only the keeper to beat, but a bad touch let him down as Anderson came out to  collect the ball.advertisementWhat Moukhliss couldn’t do, Sergio Gomez showed how to just 10 minutes later. It was Ruiz again who won the ball and passed it to Miranda who found Gomez in space. Gomez showed his predatory side again as Panzo failed to clear the ball with his header and Sergio blasted the ball in the net.England were pilling on the pressure at the fag end of the first half with Phil Foden making playing around with the Spanish defence. But it was hat-trick hero, Brewster who headed England back into the game.Steven Sessegnon, pacing through the right flank, delivered a peach of a cross as the tournament’s leading scorer jumped throughway to meet the ball with a thundering header.Congratulations @England for the superb display and thank you all for pulling off a great #FIFAU17WC . Hat’s off to the energetic crowd also https://t.co/M6doADc391- Indian Football Team (@IndianFootball) October 28, 2017Sessegnon managed to do it once more and again Spain fell for it. Pace down the channels hurt them again as the right back crossed a delicious ball which Gibbs-White obliged, with much delight, by thumping the ball in for the equaliser.Phil Foden met a low cross from Hudson-Odoi, after George McEachran found him with a eye of a needle pass to send the Kolkata crowd into frenzy in the 67th minute.Sessegnon was all over the pitch, even helping out in defence. He saved his team by a goal-line clearance from a Victor Chust’s header.A bit later, Hudson-Odoi’s free-kick set the cat among the pigeons in the Spanish defence. Marc Guehi was alert to jump at the ball and plant it across the line for England’s fourth.As the final whistle blew to end a hugely successful tournament, India showed the world, that football finally won.last_img read more

Naveen Patnaik’s sister Gita Mehta declines Padma Shri citing timing of award

first_imgOdisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik’s sister Gita Mehta, who has been conferred with the Padma Shri, has refused to accept the award which the Centre announced on the eve of Republic Day.She was awarded the Padma Shri in the field of literature and education.The awards were announced on the eve of the Republic Day yesterday.In a press statement issued from New York, Mehta said she was refusing the award as the timing for it was not right, according to a local website.”I am deeply honoured that the Government of India should think me worthy of a Padma Shri but with great regret I feel I must decline as there is a general election looming and the timing of the award might be misconstrued, causing embarrassment both to the government and myself, which I would much regret,” Mehta said in the statement.Notably, the general election is due in a few months. It has been rumoured in the political circles that the Centre’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government was trying to woo Biju Janata Dal (BJD) in case there was a hung assembly.The move is being seen as an attempt to win BJD’s support by conferring award to Naveen Patnaik’s sister, Gita Mehta.Gita Mehta has authored books like Karma Cola (1979), Raj (1989), A River Sutra (1993), Snakes and Ladders: Glimpses of Modern India (1997) and Eternal Ganesha: From Birth to Rebirth (2006).Mehta has also produced and/or directed 14 documentaries.Also Read | Gautam Gambhir, Sunil Chhetri among 9 sports stars honoured with Padma awardsAlso Watch | Naveen Patnaik’s sister Gita Mehta refuses to accept Padma Shri awardAlso Watch | Unsung heroes of nation awarded with Padma Shriadvertisementlast_img read more

Health professionals personal online disclosures may have an impact on their credibility

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Jun 18 2019For health professionals, posting a single negative comment to their Facebook profiles may hinder their credibility with current or potential clients, a new University of Guelph study reveals.People increasingly use social media to promote themselves or to connect with friends and acquaintances. As the line between personal and professional can easily be confused when professionals use social media to promote themselves, U of G researchers investigated Facebook factors that may affect people’s perceptions of professionalism.They found posting only one subtle comment expressing workplace frustration was enough for people to view you as a less credible health professional. Prof. Jason Coe, Department of Population Medicine, and Cynthia Weijs, who conducted the study as part of her dissertation research and is now at University of Calgary. “This finding is significant not only because health professionals use social media in their personal lives, but are also encouraged to use it to promote themselves and engage with the public.”Published recently in the Journal of Medical Internet Research, the study involved more than 350 Canadian participants who viewed a mock Facebook profile and rated the profile owner’s credibility and then rated their own willingness to become a client of that profile owner.The researchers tested factors including the identified gender of the Facebook profile owner, whether they listed their profession as a veterinarian or medical physician and whether their profile included a posting of an ambiguous workday comment or a comment expressing frustration.The ambiguous comment posted stated: “Started with new electronic patient charts today…interesting experience for sure J.”The workday frustration comment stated: “What is it with some people?? I know I only went through 9 years of university…but really, I know what I’m talking about…yeesh!!”Related StoriesTrump administration cracks down on fetal tissue researchOlympus launches next-generation X Line objectives for clinical, research applicationsResearch sheds light on sun-induced DNA damage and repairThe only factor that influenced viewers’ perception of the profile owner’s professionalism was the single workday frustration comment. On a scale from 0 to 100, the profile with the negative workday comment was rated 11 points lower (56.7) than the one with the ambiguous workday comment (67.9).”That’s a meaningful drop,” said Desmarais. “This shows that it takes just one simple comment for people to view you as less professional and to decide they don’t want to become a client of yours. Depending on who sees your posts, you may really hurt your reputation just by being up late one night, feeling frustrated and posting your thoughts online.”Credibility ratings were determined based on participants’ scoring of 16 personality adjectives under the categories of competence, caring and trustworthiness. Profile owners with lower credibility ratings were also deemed by participants as less professional.Even if a health professional refrains from posting this type of negative comment on their promotional page, potential clients can easily find their personal page online, added Desmarais.”This blurring between private and public may be particularly problematic for people just entering the health profession field who have essentially grown up posting their lives on social media and haven’t yet had the chance to build positive relationships with clients.”While social media can be an effective way to engage with others, as well as promote and brand yourself, it’s not the best fit for everyone, he added.”It makes sense for people whose personalities are a large part of their profession to promote themselves through social media, but it may not make as much sense for health professionals and other professionals whose trust and credibility is a large part of their personal capital.” Source:University of GuelphJournal reference:Weijs, C. et al.

New project reveals beautification processes used by women over the ages

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Jul 9 2019Centuries of dangerous practices used by women in the pursuit of beauty are being showcased in a new project revealing brutal beauty regimes, from sewing hair into eyelids to replacing eyebrows with mouse skin.Birmingham City University Design for Performance student Amber Ayers has produced a range of new images showcasing the beautification processes used by women over the ages from the ‘absurd’ to the lethal.The challenging portraits show the lengths women would go to conform to societal standards of beauty from ancient Egypt, Elizabethan and Victorian England, to today’s Instagram age.Amber is bidding to reveal the extent of the pressures facing women, leading some to endure painful and gruesome procedures, while also charting the history predating the trend for injectables such as Botox and collagen by hundreds of years.Among Amber’s discoveries were processes taken by English aristocrats, Egyptian royalty and centuries of other women across the globe, which include: Amber’s studies, which focus on creative design, used makeup, hair, wig styling, costumes and Photoshop to produce the images, which recreate some of the most shocking sights.She believes influencer and celebrity culture in today’s society has replaced the pressures to be seen as affluent, which hallmarked the acts of previous generations. We have tested and regulated a lot of procedures, beauty and makeup products throughout the years, but you still hear so many horror stories online and in the news about women and men putting themselves through unnecessary treats to ‘look better’.”Amber Ayers, Birmingham City University Related StoriesLoose double-stranded RNA molecules spur skin rejuvenationVitamin D supplementation may not reduce the risk of heart diseaseScientists develop accurate, wearable voice recognition device”I think we will forever be testing new beauty products and procedures which could potentially be dangerous and viewed as absurd, but unfortunately this is the only way we learn. Just like we learnt the hard way not to put lead on our faces like they did in the Elizabethan era.”I believe pressure is put on the younger generation through social media. There are way too many influencers and famous people creating standards that are impossible for young women to meet without having some kind of injection or using some ridiculous beauty regime.”A lot of young girls are impressionable and will believe anything an influencer will say. I’m not saying that all famous people or influencers are bad people, but there are standards being set that could lead to young women potentially putting themselves in danger.”All images in the collection were captured by fellow Birmingham City University student Paige Bowater who studies photography.The project was produced as part of Amber’s end-of-year project and was displayed at Birmingham City University’s Inspired Festival, which showcases the work of students studying on courses in its Arts, Design and Media Faculty.Amber hopes the images will help people to think again about the actions they take in the hope of looking beautiful, and highlight quite how absurd and brutal some practices are.She added: “I hope the impact this project has on people is just realization, realization of the fact we have a problem within society. Hopefully this project makes people stop and think for a second and question their views and choices when it comes to beauty.”What will be the next beauty trend? What will be the new dangers? And what will be the new absurd? When is too much, too much?” Source:Birmingham City University Sewing hair directly into the eyelids to extend eyelashes during the 1800s Using a metal device using screws to reshape the nose during the Victorian era Covering the face with lead makeup – leading to lead poisoning Using mouse skin to create eyebrow wigs Crushed insect lipstick Belladonna and lemon juice eye drops used to dilate pupils – which could cause blindness Shoe polish mascara Cigarettes to keep you ‘healthy’ – which aged the skin and caused an array of health problems from cancer to emphysemalast_img read more

Your personal space is no longer physical – its a global network

first_img Digital self helps in getting to know new people The personal space as global net originating from each of us. Credit: Silvio Carta, Author provided As a case study, we set up an open Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) in Plaza de Los Palos Grandes in Caracas, for people to connect free of charge for a limited period of time. A total of 123 people connected to our WLAN with their devices, sending and receiving packets of information to and from servers across the world.From the packets, we extracted the location of the servers to which each user connected. In the image below, we generated one line for each connection established between the person and the servers. It demonstrates how the data generated by an email to a close friend, composed in the intimate space between you and your device, has the potential to reach across the world. Here’s how it works: the smart phone converts your email into radio waves and sends the information to a WiFi router. It’s then passed to your email provider’s servers, then – through the internet’s Transmission Control Protocol (TCP), which controls the movement of data across the web – to the other provider’s servers and to your friend’s inbox. Provided by The Conversation The complexity of the data traffic emitted by each of us in the public space. Credit: Silvio Carta, Author provided Scholars have tried to argue that in the digital era, our “personal bubble” is not just physical – it’s also virtual. They claim that your personal bubble is a membrane which filters the data you that send out and the information you receive back. It’s the sum of all the settings and agreements across different digital platforms – including apps, social media and email – as well as the phone itself, which help you to manage your personal, group and public data and communications. But our results show that in the digital realm, personal space isn’t like a bubble which surrounds each person, helping to define the nature of their encounters, relationships, intimacies or invasions. In fact, it’s more like a global network of connections, reaching everywhere, coming from each person whenever they send or receive a packet of data. Our images show how personal space disperses through the atmosphere and materialises in someone else’s device in a matter of seconds, leaving traces in a dispersed constellation of servers. Because of this, personal space has become dynamic – it changes in real time with our digital interactions. Our participants sent and received information right across the world.

Translated into radio waves, this information can travel almost effortlessly through space in a split second. Data are all around us, invisibly occupying the space between ourselves and other objects in the built environment. My colleagues and I conducted a study to understand how the presence of all this data alters our understanding of personal and public spaces.

Changing spacePeople tend to think that personal communication originates within the intimate dimension of our personal space. We consider the space immediately around us to be ours and personal – it’s where we think, formulate ideas and speak with others. This study gave us the opportunity to consider how the shape of our personal space is changing as we live our digital lives in public spaces. The term “personal space” has meant different things since architects, urbanists, sociologist and geographers started studying it. In the 1960s, personal space was thought of as the distances we maintain from others, to control our interactions with them. The size of this invisible aura could vary, depending on cultural values, the density of people around you and other circumstances. Explore further Given how sensitive we are to invasions of our physical personal space, it’s remarkable that many of us don’t even realise the extent of our digital personal space, which is scattered around servers and other devices around the world. By visualising the massive size and dispersed form of our digital personal space, people will become more protective of their data, taking a greater interest in the level of encryption, privacy and permissions granted to each app they use. Personal space is no longer the immediate space that surrounds us and that moves with us. It is rather something more abstract – globally distributed and possibly everywhere at any time. The next time we look at our phone to send a text message, we should envision the real extent of our space, that goes to the other side of the globe in seconds to pin back to us. Our personal space is not a bubble anymore – it is a global network. Credit: Silvio Carta, Author providedlast_img read more

Karnataka crisis Congress MLA Nagaraj hints at reconsidering resignation

first_img Next Press Trust of India BengaluruJuly 13, 2019UPDATED: July 13, 2019 16:06 IST Nagaraj said he had resigned due to certain “discontentment” and that there was disagreement in every political party. (Photo: ANI)As the Congress intensified efforts to woo back its disgruntled MLAs in Karnataka on Saturday, one of them hinted that he might consider withdrawing his resignation and also said he would try to persuade others.State Housing Minister and Hoskote MLA MTB Nagaraj, one of the 16 rebel Congress-JD(S) MLAs who resigned from the Assembly last week, dealing a blow to the coalition government, said senior Congress leaders, including former chief minister Siddaramiah, met him and asked him to withdraw his resignation.”Siddaramaiah and Dinesh Gundu Rao called me and requested me to withdraw the resignation and stay in the party. I have sought time to mull over it.”I told them I will speak to Chikkaballapura MLA Sudhakar and persuade him to withdraw his resignation. We are planning to stay here only,” Nagaraj told reporters.He was flanked by Deputy Chief Minister G Parameshwara, state Water Resource Minister D K Shivakumar and other Congress leaders.To a query on whether all the differences were sorted out, Nagaraj said he had resigned due to certain “discontentment” and that there was disagreement in every political party.”The party high-command is trying to persuade the MLAs. I will also try my best to help them in their efforts,” he added.Nagaraj then left for state Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leader Siddaramaiah’s residence.A day after Chief Minister H D Kumaraswamy made a surprise announcement in the Assembly that he would seek a trust vote in the House, efforts were intensified by the ruling coalition to reach out to the rebel MLAs.Congress’s “troubleshooter” Shivakumar reached Nagaraj’s residence early Saturday morning and camped there for almost four-and-a-half hours, trying to pacify the Hoskote MLA.Subsequently, Parameshwara too reached Nagaraj’s house to convince him to withdraw his resignation.A similar attempt was on to persuade MLAs Ramalinga Reddy, Munirathna, K Sudhakar and R Roshan Baig.Sources in the Janata Dal (Secular) said Kumaraswamy was in direct talks with at least four Congress legislators, who had resigned, and was hopeful that they would withdraw their resignations.Triggering speculation, a group of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders, led by MLA S R Vishwanath and Bengaluru corporator Padmanabha Reddy, met Ramalinga Reddy at his residence.However, Ramalinga Reddy refused to comment on the development, saying he would not speak on politics till July 15 as he had to appear before the Assembly speaker.Meanwhile, his daughter and Congress MLA Sowmya Reddy said she had no information about the meeting.”I am in the Congress and I have not resigned. My father has resigned and all the questions pertaining to his resignation should be asked to him,” she said.In a bid to keep their flocks together ahead of the floor test in the Assembly that is likely to take place in the coming week, both the Congress and the BJP have shifted their MLAs to hotels and resorts.Earlier, commenting on the developments, state BJP president B S Yeddyurappa said these efforts would not yield any result as the fall of the coalition government was “imminent”.”There is confusion in the Congress and the JD(S) due to which the MLAs are fleeing these parties. A systematic conspiracy is going on to bring the MLAs back,” the former Karnataka chief minister told reporters here.”The atmosphere is chaotic and the fall of the government is imminent,” he said.Claiming that the ruling coalition had lost majority in the Assembly, Yeddyurappa said seeking a vote of confidence was “meaningless”.Kumaraswamy made the announcement about seeking a trust vote on the floor of the Assembly after the Supreme Court ordered the speaker on Friday to maintain status quo on the resignations of 10 rebel MLAs of the Congress and the JD(S) till July 16.The coalition government, which has been shaky since its formation last year following a post-poll arrangement in the wake of a hung verdict, is facing a serious crisis now with 16 legislators — 13 of the Congress and three of the JD(S) — resigning from the Assembly.Besides, two Independent MLAs, who were made ministers recently to provide stability to the government, have quit the cabinet and withdrawn their support to the government.The ruling coalition’s strength in the House is 116 (Congress 78, JD(S) 37 and BSP one), besides the speaker.With the support of the two independents, the opposition BJP has 107 MLAs in the 224-member House.If the resignations of the 16 MLAs are accepted, the ruling coalition’s tally will be reduced to 100.The speaker has a vote too.ALSO READ | Rebel Karnataka MLAs take chartered flight for darshan at Shirdi templeALSO WATCH | Nataka in Karnataka: Rahul Gandhi breaks his silence, says BJP using money power to topple govtsFor the latest World Cup news, live scores and fixtures for World Cup 2019, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Saddened by induction of Congress MLAs into party loyal BJP worker quits

first_imgSaddened by induction of Congress MLAs into party, loyal BJP worker quitsA BJP worker publicly resigned from the party, directly blaming its decision to induct 10 Congress MLAs – one of whom has been chargesheeted for the rape of a minor – for his exit.advertisement Indo-Asian News Service PanajiJuly 13, 2019UPDATED: July 13, 2019 11:25 IST Pranav Sanvordekar’s open resignation letter uploaded to Facebook on Friday has gone viral. (Photo: IANS)Days after re-enrolling into the BJP as part of its nationwide membership drive, a young BJP worker on Friday publicly resigned from the party, directly blaming its decision to induct 10 Congress MLAs – one of whom has been chargesheeted for the rape of a minor – for his exit.Pranav Sanvordekar’s open resignation letter uploaded to Facebook on Friday has gone viral.”I am extremely saddened by the events (which) occurred during the last 2 days… I cannot be a part of this organisation anymore even if the decision is for the betterment of the party… If I keep quiet now, it would be like suffering thousand deaths which I already have… The party may have succeeded in safeguarding the interest of the government,” Sanvordekar said in his Facebook message.Sanvordekar has been with the BJP for 18 years and was a part of the state BJP’s communication cell, regularly present at media briefings and issuing communications on behalf of the BJP.Since Wednesday’s surprising induction of 10 Congress MLAs into the BJP, several party workers like former state president and Speaker Rajendra Arlekar, even senior state leaders have already expressed disgust at the development.Late Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar’s son Utpal too has maintained that the Goa BJP was walking on a different path, compared to the days when Parrikar was alive and there was no element of trust left.Sanvordekar said he began his career in the BJP in 1999 writing election slips, and painting roads with BJP insignia. But added that a lot had changed within the BJP since.”Have been defending the wrong doings of the party publicly but had been fighting out internally been even when Manohar bhai was alive and after his demise…” he said.Sanvordekar told IANS that one of the newly-inducted ex-Congress MLAs Atanasio Monserrate, who was chargesheeted for raping a minor girl last year, should be sacked from the party.Monserrate, who contested the May 2019 bypolls for the Panaji seat on a Congress ticket and had defeated the local BJP candidate, is now tipped to be a minister in the Pramod Sawant-led Cabinet.READ | Goa CM Pramod Sawant seeks resignation of 3 ministers, independent MLA to induct new facesALSO READ | Kumaraswamy wants floor test, SC asks Speaker to not act on resignations | All that happenedALSO WATCH | Karnataka crisis: BJP denies poaching chargesFor the latest World Cup news, live scores and fixtures for World Cup 2019, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
