Neymar faces 3 European games ban for insulting officials on Instagram

first_imgAdvertisement Image Courtesy: Soccer LadumaAdvertisementNeymar will now miss the first 3 group stage games in the next season’s UEFA Champions League.Image Courtesy: Soccer LadumaPSG starlet Neymar Jr. has been handed a 3 Champions League games suspension by the UEFA following his controversial Instagram post after his side suffered a 1-3 defeat to Manchester United to exit the tournament in April.Having taken a comfortable 2-0 lead in the first leg at Old Tafford, PSG once again went on to bottle the tie losing 1-3 at home. The Red Devils profited through a late penalty that was awarded through VAR after the officials spotted Presnel Kimpembe block Diogo Dalot’s shot with his arm.After Rashford scored the controversial penalty and sent PSG packing home, an angered Neymar, who was forced to miss the tie due to a broken foot took to Instagram to take a dig at the referees as well as VAR.“That is a disgrace! And UEFA still pick four guys who know nothing about football to review the VAR decision in slow motion… that handball simply doesn’t exist! How do you handball behind your back? Ahh.. go f*ck yourselves,” Neymar wrote on his Instagram stories.UEFA told that they would investigate the post and have now settled for a 3 game ban. They went on to conclude that Neymar violated Article 15 (1) (d) of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations for insulting/molesting acts against a match official.Meanwhile, Neymar returned to playing football last week in a 3-1 thrashing of Monaco that saw his side claim the Ligue 1 title. He and his team will have an eye on another piece of sliverware when PSG face Rennes in the Coupe de France final tonight.Also Read:Mohamed Salah breaks yet another record for Liverpoollast_img read more

3 Steps for a Better Nonprofit Website

first_imgCONNECTThere has to be a common ground between those serving/giving and those in need. Let’s assume, for example, the cost of one latte a week is the same as the mosquito netting that will save a family from the threat of malaria in Africa. The value has now been put into terms that every iPhone-toting college kid in the US can understand.Organizations like Mocha Club and OneDaysWages have become very successful using parallel connectivity. Once your donor understands the value, they can better justify a giving program. Give them every opportunity to donate and/or get involved. Your donate button should be a mainstay in your header or somewhere consistent on every page. The same goes for newsletter or street team signups. Don’t let a donation or volunteer slip by because your readers can’t find out how to take action online. Get to the point. Don’t overwhelm your readers with too much information. You don’t want to be the over-eager sample food peddler at your local mall food court, shouting and shoving your product in people’s faces, overwhelming and offending them. Pare down your homepage content and give them a concise, yet clear and accurate taste of what you’re about. If you whet their appetite, they’ll dig deeper for more information. Same goes for your navigation. Cut it down to 5-7 main links (no drop-downs!) that make the user want to find out more: What We’re Doing, Get Involved, etc. BELIEVELike it or not, the new change-driven generation (25-35) and the one following (19-24) have been trained to make a lot of assumptions based on the overall look of a product or service. This goes for causes, too. Look at Blood:Water Mission, charity:water, and TOMS. All three have in common an incredible design aesthetic and are remarkably successful in penetrating their target markets. They’re taken seriously because they look serious and they look good.  An emphasis on the visual aesthetic of your website builds legitimacy for your organization.Even in a struggling economy companies like Target and Apple continue to put an emphasis on their visual brand. There’s no compromise when it comes to quality either. It should be no different for nonprofit organizations. Your website is the single largest opportunity to reach as many people as possible for your organization. Where else can you directly pitch to 73% of adults in the U.S.¹?With an audience that big, you’d better make the best of it.So what makes an effective website? What truly determines a nonprofit website’s ability to educate its market, garner donations and inspire involvement? The answer is good branding. Effective branding will enable your market to do three things: So how can you connect with your target market as successfully as TOMS and Target? Here are some small, simple steps that will allow you to connect with your viewers and help your organization’s website stand out from the digital crowd: Source: ¹ Pew Internet & American Life Project, April 8-May 11, 2008 Tracking Survey ATTAINThe goal of your organization must feel reachable. In order to get people passionate about a cause, they have to feel as though their contribution (whether that be service-oriented or financial) can make an impact. A mission statement is a macro view of your desire to impact the world. But be sure to offer your readers a micro view of what you hope/need to accomplish to reach your mission. Organize with a purpose. Your site architecture should take the readers on a path.

Pakistan coaching staff had high praise for Indian Under-19 team: Rahul Dravid

first_imgRahul Dravid has clarified he did not visit the Pakistan dressing room after India’s semi-final victory at the ICC Under-19 World Cup last week.It was widely reported Dravid, India’s Under-19 coach had gone to the Pakistan dressing-room to greet the players in what was seen as a warm gesture and appreciated by cricket fans.WATCHHowever, Dravid, one of the most respected figures in world cricket, said he had gone on to congratulate a “talented left-arm pacer” in the Pakistani team.Presumably, Dravid was talking about 17-year-old Shaheen Shah Afridi, who grabbed headlines with an eight-wicket haul on his fist-class debut and caught the attention of the cricket world in the course of the World Cup.India, thanks to a gutsy hundred by Shubman Gill, first posted 272/9 and then bowled Pakistan out for 69. Dravid said the Pakistan coaching staff were effusive in their praise of the Indian boys and as a coach, he too felt happy to see genuine talent.”I did not go to the Pakistan dressing-room,” Dravid said in a press conference in Mumbai after the Indian Under-19 team returned home. “They had a very talented left-arm pacer – I went and congratulated him – they were very appreciative of our talent as well. They told us the standard of cricket we have seen your boys play is a benchmark for the rest of the world, They were effusive in their praise.”Dravid also said he did not have any regrets not winning the World Cup as a player. He played in three World Cups – 1999, 2003 and 2007 but never laid his hands on the coveted trophy.advertisement”My cricket career is over – I always say I have been around a long time – not lifting a World Cup is not a regret. I have no regrets – I do not walk around in pain or something,” Dravid said.India had defeated Australia by 100 runs, Papua New Guinea by 10 wickets, Zimbabwe by 10 wickets, Bangladesh by 131 runs and Pakistan by 203 runs to set up a title clash against Australia.In the final, Ishan Porel, Shiva Singh, Kamlesh Nagarkotti, Anukul Roy and Shivam Mavi were among the wickets – as Australia were bowled out for 216. That was never going to be enough against a strong Indian batting line-up.There are busy days ahead for India’s Under-19 team. They will be felicitated by BCCI in Mumbai on Tuesday. The Indian board had announced a cash reward of Rs 50 lakh for coach Rahul Dravid, Rs 30 lakh for the players and Rs 20 lakh for the support staff.Next, as many as seven players from the side – Shaw, Gill, Kamlesh Nagarkotti, Shivam Mavi, Anukul Roy, Abhishek Sharma and Kalra – will also play in the IPL from April after bagging lucrative contracts in the IPL Auction held in Bengaluru on January 27 and 28.last_img read more

Veszprem has strong faith Ortega We can play better – Nagy Kiel

Hungarian TOP team MKB Veszprem has became the real “hit of the EHF CL” last October when Antonio Carlos Ortega and his players beat Atletico Madrid and THW Kiel in only one week. “Dream week” is necessary to be repeated if Veszprem wants to achieve the biggest result of decade – EHF CL F4 in Cologne. The most difficult rival – THW Kiel is again “problem”…–  We got the hardest opposer. It’s a positive sign that we will play the second match at home and we have time to prepare, because most of the players from the national teams will stay in Veszprém. In February we played desperately in Kiel and they put up a good show. I’m sure that we can play better. That match is a thing of the past, we must deal with the future – said MKB’s coach Antonio Carlos Ortega.The World’s Best player for 2011, Laszlo Nagy knows how to deal with the pressure of big matches:– We got the hardest team, but we must knock out them if we want to reach the Final Four. Kiel is not unbeatable, they slipped more times this year. We have to search how we can qualify. We must travel to Kiel with the trust of victory, play a good match and fight out the getting on at home.TEXT: VIRAG FARKASsource: http://www.mkbveszprem.eu/ Antonio Carlos OrtegaLaszlo NagyMKB VeszpremTHW Kiel ← Previous Story Kiel wants “full revenge” against Veszprem, Gislason: “Chances 50/50” Next Story → “Lucky draw” for Metalurg, Cervar: We are waiting for “third luck” (PHOTO) read more

Ireland out of World Twenty20 after Dutch courage prevails

first_imgDESPITE A STUNNING 57 in just 38 balls from Andrew Poynter and a seemingly insurmountable total of 189-4, Ireland are out of the ICC World Twenty20 after defeat to the Netherlands this afternoon.Ireland, the Netherlands and Zimbabwe all finished on four points but it will be the Dutch who go through to the Super 10s on the basis of a better net run rate.Needing 190 in 14.2 overs, the Netherlands got off to an incredible start, scoring no fewer than 82 runs for the loss of no wickets in their first five overs with Stephan Myburgh (63 from 23) and Peter Borren (31 off 15) doing the early damage.It hardly got any better for Ireland as, despite three wickets in as many overs, the Dutch onslaught kept coming with George Dockrel dispatched for four sixes in succession in the 11th over to reach 157-3.Phil Simmons’ men will wonder what might have been though as Ed Joyce dropped Tom Cooper on one before the Dutch batsman raced to 45 in just 15 balls before eventually being caught out but it was too little too late and the Netherlands reached their required total with three balls to spare.Ireland got the game off to the best possible start after being put in to bat by the Dutch. Captain William Porterfield set the tempo with a quick-fire 47 while Ed Joyce kept the scoreboard ticking over with a solid 28 before being run out.Kevin O’Brien had his best ever Twenty20 innings with an unbeaten 42 but it was Poynter’s 57 that looked to have seen Ireland into the Super 10s phase of the tournament.However, it was not to be.Graeme McDowell made this 75-foot putt for eagle yesterdayGood Gracious!

Apple copies Microsoft wants 15 per Android device sold

first_imgMicrosoft has taken a lot of heat for its spate of Android patent licensing deals. Just about everyone who builds Android phones or tablets (or Chrome OS notebooks) has signed on the dotted line with the suits in Redmond. The goal, of course, is to avoid lengthy, expensive litigation and provide both sides with access to the all-important contents of each others’ patent portfolios.Apple, on the other hand, has been more than happy to file lawsuit after lawsuit in defense of its intellectual property and designs. Barely a week goes by that Apple isn’t suing Samsung or Motorola somewhere in the world, seeking injunctions and asking for gadgets to be pulled off store shelves.That’s got everything to do with former CEO Steve Jobs’ mission to destroy Android even if it meant spending every last penny Apple had — and they’ve got a serious hoard of pennies. The times they are a-changin’, however, and a report from Dow Jones says that Cupertino’s legal eagles are willing to try the Microsoft approach.Apple has reportedly offered licensing deals to Motorola and Samsung, two of their most frequent legal opponents. House of Cook is reportedly asking for between 1 and 2.5% of net device sales — which works out to $5-15. That’s roughly what Microsoft has secured in their royalty deals, and would mean that Samsung would have to cough up anywhere from $20 to $30 for each Android device sold should they sign an agreement with Apple.That’s a substantial chunk of change when you’re trying to keep costs to a minimum, but Samsung could always fall back on Bada and Tizen if things get too expensive.More at NASDAQlast_img read more

Greek government legislates mandatory collective bargaining in four industries

first_imgIn what is seen as a cautious roll back of the widely unpopular labour market reforms implemented as part of the bailout program, Greece’s government legislated the mandatory application of collective bargaining agreements in four industries.According to the decision, signed by Minister of labour and social security Efi Achtsioglou on Monday, collective bargaining agreements will be obligatory in banking, travel agencies, maritime shipping and all businesses that are members of the International Maritime Union, an organization that represents liner shipping agencies and cruise ships agents operating at the port of Piraeus.The government presented this decision as evidence of its willingess to live up to its plegde to start rolling back the austerity measures that curtailed workers’ rights, during the implementation of the bailout program.This move is not without risk for the Tsipras government, as it is expected not to go down well with Greece’s lenders, who insisted on the need for a liberalisation of the country’s labour market. The specific measure may have been responsible for a decrease in unemployment rates, however it also brought down wages.According to the Labour ministry data, since the beginning of the 2018, the vast majority of employer-employees agreements have come at the company level. Specifically, 155 company-wide agreements have been signed in 2018 so far, with only 15 sector-wide agreements, and eight at the regional level.

Gio Simeone cant wait for his dad to coach Argentina

first_imgDiego Simeone’s older son who is having a great debut in European football, stated publicly that he knows his father will manage Argentina sooner or later.A couple weeks ago there was an interview in the Spanish radio where Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone, spoke about his son Giovanni and the narrow chances he has of bringing him to Atletico Madrid and the possibility of coaching Argentina in the future. The youngster hadn’t spoken in public after that interview and he did it this Thursday in Fox Sports Argentina, he revealed that his father’s words were hard to digest but he agrees with him. As Diego Simeone’s son, Giovanni always had a hard time to make people respect him because they always believed that he was a product of nepotism. Ever since he made his debut in River Plate at a very early age, young Giovanni never had it easy to rise through the ranks and he is one of the few examples of a football family where the descendants improve the bloodline. Today as a Fiorentina striker, Gio has many of the same trades his father had during his career but he uses them as a striker. The oldest of the Simeone children is a fighter like his dad, but he was also born with the gift of scoring many goals that have brought him to Europe on his own merits and has also given him the honor of making his debut for Argentina with a goal. ¿PRESIÓN PARA PAPÁ?#90MinutosFOX – Esto dijo Giovanni sobre las chances de que el Cholo Simeone llegue alguna vez a la Selección Argentina. pic.twitter.com/pGfMszR7T4— FOX Sports Argentina (@FOXSportsArg) September 27, 2018The lad also spoke about the dream of representing the National Team where his father once played as a young professional, but he set his sights on the striker position and he keeps working hard to accomplish that in the future. One of the most expected questions that the Fox Sports panel had for young Giovanni, was if he wanted his father to take control of the Argentina National Team during this term before the next World Cup. The player obviously said yes, but he understands why he chose to not do it now because of everything he is currently going through with Atletico Madrid. However, the Fiorentina striker keeps his hopes high and truly believes that his father will coach Argentina in the future. For Gio, Diego Simeone becoming the Argentina National Team manager is only a matter of time and he reflected the wish that everybody in the country has to let him have a go at coaching the squad in the near future. But this is not the time for ‘Cholo’ to manage Argentina yet, there are many things that AFA need to fix in order to convince the Atletico Madrid manager to take the team sometime in the future.”VENIR A EUROPA ME HIZO MADURAR MUCHO”#90MinutosFOX Giovanni Simeone, en exclusiva pic.twitter.com/CMj9yV427YCristiano Ronaldo, JuventusSerie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….— FOX Sports Argentina (@FOXSportsArg) September 27, 2018“Of course I would’ve like my father to be the Argentina manager, I tell you this both as a player and as an Argentinean. Of course I wish he takes control of the national team someday, most of all because he is a manager who has a lot of heart as we all know, he always finds the best way to motivate his players and he always convinces every player to make their greatest effort to fight. Exactly like you see him do in Atletico Madrid. I tell you this as an Argentinean but also as his son, I know that my father coaching the National Team is only a matter of time. I wish I can get to be Argentina’s number ‘9’ in the Qatar World Cup. I know it’s not easy but I will do my best to achieve it. The support I get from the city of Florence is immense. I have to keep doing things the way I’m doing them right now, I keep a mindset that tells me I have to score a goal tomorrow and also on the next match. I felt very moved when I made my debut for Argentina, but I realized what just happened after the match. In order to triumph in life, one must first fail repeatedly and I will keep doing that every day for the rest of my life,” said Giovanni during the interview with Fox Sports Argentina.”Sé que mi papá va a dirigir la Selección Argentina”: Giovanni Simeone dejó la puerta abierta para que su padre asuma la Selección Argentina en el futuro. https://t.co/mEWzbn8DQu pic.twitter.com/nvQbab8yHA— Futbol Argentino (@Argentina_futbo) September 27, 2018How long do you think it will take Diego Simeone to make the decision to manage Argentina?
