Neeraj Chopra’s coach complains about SAI, javelin thrower says it is different in India

first_imgNeeraj Chopra’s German coach Uwe Hohn had recently voiced his concerns over the delay in procuring equipment, insufficient support staff and poor diet.”Because of the very bad support of the Sports Authority of India (SAI), we need help from people or companies who like to help ASAP because with every week, bit by bit, we lose chance to reach our high goals!,” the Indian Express quoted a mail from Hohn.”I contacted 2 javelin companies and sent my list of equipment to an office in Patiala. But when the company didn’t receive any order I checked last week and found out that this guy hadn’t even opened the mail I sent to him. That’s the way SAI is working!”I had organised two of them (recovery systems) for our team and SAI reimbursed me for those. Now we have just one and the other is with the 400-m team. Nobody likes to help us, no Athletics Federation of India (AFI), no SAI. SAI is a major problem. It’s been over 4 or 5 months since I made my demand but nothing has happened so far,” Hohn said.”We have just one masseur for nine male athletes and one girl for the female athletes in the camp here and sorry both are not good masseurs! Good massages are also important for a faster recovery, better training and better results.”Training camps are either delayed or not happening. We can’t go (abroad for tournaments) earlier and don’t get a good block of days to train and fulfill our plans. They blame problems with visa for it but I can’t believe this,” Hohn added.advertisementStar javelin thrower Neeraj responded to the startling revelations by saying that “things can’t happen in a jiffy”.”My coach, Uwe Hohn is from Germany, so sports system there is different from what we have here [in India]. He has written to the Sports Authority of India (SAI) so that I can go out and focus on training for 2-3 months. Right now, training is fine but as programmes are happening here and there, I have to attend them which hampers my training. He is in talks but things are getting delayed because of holidays and Christmas,” he told ANI.Chopra also lauded the Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore for “doing pretty good things for sports in the nation.””They have run Khelo India and they are working more. I hope in the coming year’s things will get better,” he added.When asked about his preparations for 2020 Tokyo Olympics, Chopra said, “First of all I have World Championship next year, so I am preparing for it. If things go well then automatically I will be motivated for Olympics. I have my target set on the Olympics.”Also Read | Neeraj Chopra, Hima Das shine in breakthrough year for India in athleticsAlso Read | Diet in India is a lot about tasty food, overseas focus is only on nutrition: Neeraj ChopraAlso Read | Neeraj Chopra says Diamond League was his biggest experience in 2018last_img read more

Mariano didnt need much to prove the number 7 suits him

first_imgDominican winger Mariano Diaz had been looking for the opportunity he got today for Real Madrid, he presented himself as Real Madrid’s number ‘7’ in style.This Wednesday was the best moment when Real Madrid could make an impact in the Champions League that would leave the fans satisfied, they wanted to watch either Vinicius or Mariano Diaz play against AS Roma at the Santiago Bernabeu. Manager Julen Lopetegui recognized this urge to give one of both players their chance and he decided to let the Dominican winger have his opportunity, Real Madrid’s new number ‘7’ ceased it in the best possible manner and left a fantastic impression on his first official match for Real Madrid this season. There was a huge contrast between what was expected from Los Blancos and what people expected from Cristiano Ronaldo’s performance against Valencia, the Portuguese forward left the match after getting sent-off and Real Madrid got a dream first performance without his presence for the first time in nine years. The Merengues got ahead in the scoreboard through a sublime Isco free-kick during the first half, he struck the ball with such finesse, that his goal was very familiar to the one Messi scored last Tuesday. But by halftime against AS Roma, Real Madrid seemed to struggle a little bit against the Italian club and a greater impact was needed for the second half.? @marianodiaz7: “Estoy muy contento por el estreno, la victoria y el debut con gol.” #RMUCL pic.twitter.com/VIYXCFq5Lj— Real Madrid C.F. (@realmadrid) September 19, 2018Then Gareth Bale made his appearance, the Welshman scored a goal that reminded everyone of two of the ones he scored during the first great Champions League match of his career when he scored that historic hat-trick against Internazionale Milano back in 2010. The ‘Cardiff Express’ received a long pass from the left that gave him a lot of space to maneuver and get himself in a perfect position to score his goal, which meant Real Madrid’s second of the night against Roma and a more relaxed final half an hour of the match. The crowd at the Santiago Bernabeu was very happy with the performance Los Blancos delivered on their opening night, but there was still something missing in this great night for Julen Lopetegui’s side and the manager was able to see this with the perfect timing he usually has to make the proper modifications. It was the 73rd minute of the match and he decided to call Mariano Diaz to make his official debut as Real Madrid’s new number ‘7’, the Dominican forward had been expecting this moment for a long time and he got on the game after taking Gareth Bale’s place on the field. The player’s impact was almost instantaneous, as he started to make several attempts to score his goal and proved he has great talent to dribble and combine with his teammates.EL ‘7’ EN EL REAL MADRID TIENE MAGIA…#ChampionsxFOX Para ver una y otra vez el gol de Mariano Díaz ante la Roma¡PARA QUITARSE EL SOMBRERO! pic.twitter.com/WESqUiXbYRJames Rodriguez, Real MadridZidane hails ‘quality’ James Rodriguez after Real Madrid’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane reserved special praise for James Rodriguez after his starring role in Real Madrid’s 3-2 win over Levante.— FOX Sports MX (@FOXSportsMX) September 19, 2018Mariano had an especially good connection with Brazilian left-back Marcelo, who found a new partner to play with on the left side of the field and was precisely the man who gave Mariano his first assist. It was near the end of the match when the Brazilian saw Mariano with space near the box and gave him the ball, the Dominican turned around towards the keeper and released a long-range strike that left the Bernabeu in complete silence for two seconds. Mariano had just scored a world-class screamer from outside the box, this was the dream presentation he had been waiting for since he decided to take on the number ‘7’ challenge as the great responsibility that the number carries with it. After the match, Mariano told the press that: “I’m very happy for my Champions League home debut against a semifinalist from last season. I’m very happy with my goal, I want to thank Marcelo for the assist and my teammates for their work today. I’ve always dreamed of a reception like this and I’m very grateful for it. I wasn’t nervous at all, I actually wanted to play but I wasn’t in a hurry. All I wanted was the chance from the manager, I’m here to win the Champions League and as many trophies as we can as a collective,” said Mariano to the press after the match.⚽? ¡Bonita manera de acabar un partido, @marianodiaz7! #RMUCL | #HalaMadrid pic.twitter.com/sME2nOlqzW— Real Madrid C.F.

Katherine Hart Hailed as a Mother to the Juvenile Manatee

first_img TCI Premier blasts Opposition side for “slop” information, sets it straight in HOA Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:Caribbean sea, dema, edwin astwood, grand turk, gulf of mexico, katherine hart, manatee, Pdm, salt cay, west africa TCI Country Leaders condemn vicious memes Recommended for you Only Doug and Ralph and Ruth can fit, that’s why Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 20 Nov 2014 – Katherine Hart hailed as a mother to the juvenile manatee which died in DEMA custody last week Wednesday… The matter capturing the attention of the member for Grand Turk South and Salt Cay, Edwin Astwood who had high commendation for Hart and her team for the effort to save the juvenile manatee. Hon Astwood explained that the species is rare for the Turks and Caicos and their diets are unique: They are herbivores and eat over 60 different freshwater and saltwater plants, but have been known to eat small amounts of fish from nets. They inhabit the shallow, marshy coastal areas and rivers of the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico, and West Africa. Some manatees, e.g. Florida manatees, can move freely between salinity extremes.” A bit of an education as the PDM member expounded. “As a result of this occurrence, there was much education given to the general public by the staff of the department on Manatees. Also, a wonderfully heartwarming, short documentary has been produced on the care and rescue activities that took place for the manatee.” There had been strong criticisms of the handling of the manatee; and a demand for an autopsy. No one knows why the manatee came to the TCI but in the end, Astwood believes DEMA cared for the creature well. The manatee, which was taken from the sea to a private pool, reportedly took its final breath while asleep in the arms of Ms. Hart. last_img read more

Spotify Enlists Its Users to Add Music Metadata EXCLUSIVE

Spotify has found a new way to beef up its knowledge about music: The company has begun to solicit music metadata suggestions from its users, asking them to describe genres of albums or moods of songs.“Listeners describe music in different ways, and understanding that information will help improve, extend, and confirm the information that describes music on Spotify,” a spokesperson recently told Variety. “We hope to better understand how Spotify listeners interpret music, so that we can improve experiences for both listeners and artists.”To that end, Spotify quietly opened up Line-In, a music metadata editor, to all of its users this month. Users of Spotify’s desktop app can access line-in by clicking on the three dots next to any song, album, or artist, and select “suggest an edit.” Popular on Variety ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses. Rapunzel, Mulan, Ariel,Tiana, Sleeping Beauty and Jasmine all got some love from the Disney stars.More VideosVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9Next UpJennifer Lopez Shares How She Became a Mogul04:350.5x1x1.25×1.5x2xLive00:0002:1502:15 Line-In’s web interface.From there, they are taken to Line-In’s web interface, which lets them suggest a wide variety of attributes, including the language of the lyrics of any given song, aliases used by an artist and even links to external websites.Spotify first began testing Line-In with a subset of its audience last fall. “Over the past few months, we’ve confirmed our beliefs that listeners care deeply about the content on Spotify—they want the data to be useful and accurate,” said the company’s spokesperson.“We’ve also seen that listeners are eager to describe the music they’re passionate about in ways beyond traditional concepts like genre and mood.” That’s why the company added the ability to use tags as descriptors as well.It’s worth noting that Spotify treats all these data submissions as suggestions; users don’t have the ability to directly edit the metadata for music in Spotify’s catalog. “Spotify considers the source, and thoroughly reviews and checks the accuracy of this information, before the suggestions are folded into the data that powers our services,” its spokesperson clarified.The company not only checks whether your submissions match what other users are saying, but also keeps track of your past performance. For instance, Line-In includes a number or surveys to test a submitter’s music knowledge. And if you completely mess up on your hip-hop test, you might have a harder time making your future contributions about the genre count.Spotify is the first music service of its size to launch a tool like Line In — but the move is consistent with the emphasis the company has put on data in the past. Back in 2014, Spotify acquired The Echo Nest, a music metadata provider, for a reported $100 million.And this month, it revealed in its F-1 filing with the SEC that it had amassed a total of 200 petabytes (about 200,000 terabytes) of data about music and the way its users access it. In the process of recommending, selecting and playing music, it accesses 5 petabytes of this data every single day. read more
