Powered by Firework It seems that Australian opener David Warner is making the most out of the quarantine period with his family. The swashbuckling southpaw made his debut on social networking app Tiktok earlier this week, but on Saturday, Warner won the internet after posting a video, where he could be seen shaking legs with his younger daughter Indi-Rae on the Bollywood popular song ‘Sheila ki Jawani.’Advertisement Image Credit: IG/davidwarner31-HungamaIn the hilarious video, Warner’s younger daughter Indi was seen donning an Indian dress and dancing with her father to the superhit number ‘Sheila Ki Jawani’ that features Katrina Kaif.“Indi has asked to also do one for you guys! please help me someone.” Warner captioned the post.Advertisement The 33-year-old then uploaded a short clip of his dancing prowess on his Instagram account while it gathered over 250,000 views under an hour.Earlier this week, Warner took to Instagram to share the news of his Tiktok debut in a video along with his two daughters Ivy-Mae and Indi.“Ok, I have zero idea what’s going on but have been told to do tik tok by my 5 year old @davidbullwarner31 and I have zero followers I need some help please and they love @tonesandi,” Warner wrote beneath the post.Sunrisers Hyderabad’s marquee opener was supposed to lead his team in the 13th version of the Indian Premier League, but the ongoing global coronavirus pandemic has led to the cancellation of the tournament.Meanwhile, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), on Thursday confirmed that the cash-rich league has been postponed indefinitely.“Due to the evolving global health concerns regarding COVID-19 and lockdown measures implemented by the Government of India to contain the spread of the pandemic, the IPL Governing Council of the BCCI has decided that the IPL 2020 Season will be suspended till further notice,” Jay Shah, the BCCI Honorary Secretary said in a press release. You may also like:Big update on IPL 2020 after lockdown extension!Shikhar Dhawan shares hilarious video pleading with his wife for respite from household chores!   Advertisementlast_img read more

Broncos diversity brings them closer

first_imgThe team gave their players an opportunity to tell this story and show what their culture means to them last week when they organised a cultural dinner. The dinner was used as a bonding experience and encouraged some of the quieter players to come out of their shell. The Broncos are a club built on inclusion, and this is not just within the playing group, with the club itself running a number of mentoring and educational programs for Indigenous Australians and Torres Strait Islander people. In the first-grade squad, these cultures are just two of many to make up the playing group.New Zealand international Kodi Nikorima took part in the dinner, and said players were encouraged to share stories as they presented cuisines from their cultural background. “We’re a big cultural team. Last week we had a cultural dinner and it was just good to mix and mingle with all the different cultures that we have here,” Nikorima said. “It really shows on the field the brotherhood we have here. “The way the dinner works is people bring in food from their culture. We have Samoans, Fijians, Torres Strait Islanders, Papua New Guineans and a whole range of cultures. “We all brought our own food and spoke about what food it is and had a big feed together.”Veteran Sam Thaiday is a man proud of his Torres Strait Islander descent, but this dinner was a first for him. Nikorima told media on Monday that Thaiday had immense pride in what the club had organised, with the second-row forward jumping at the opportunity to get involved. “Sam Thaiday spoke about it being the first time he’d done a culture night like that,” he said.  “I think what it does is get the Islanders out of their shells. They get to speak about where they come from. “It’s good (for your culture) to be heard and good to be acknowledged for where you are from.” New Zealand international Benji Marshall arrived at the club in the off-season, bringing with him leadership, experience and his own cultural experiences. He said getting to know the cultural backgrounds of all his new teammates quickly made him feel part of the group. “It’s a pretty diverse bunch here,” Marshall said. “We have a lot of nationalities, including Indigenous Australians, Maltese and Kiwis. “You learn a lot when you bring a bunch of guys together from different backgrounds. “It’s good to learn about each other and learn about life. It brings you together.”last_img read more

The ‘Miracle Man’ Returns as Coach, But can he make a difference?

first_imgAs the Ebola Virus Disease continues to decline in the country and the normal activities get underway, it makes sense for the Liberia Football Association to put in place important measures to rebuild the national soccer teams of Liberia.The decision by the LFA to appoint ex-celebrated star James Debbah (Salinsa) as the head coach to rebuild the senior national team suggests interesting dimension in the development of players for the national team.Though other former national team players, including Thomas Kojo, Kervin Sebwe and Christopher Wleh received appointments, the FA did not announce how much these men would be paid. Have these newly appointed coaches handled a club for a competition?On his facebook account, the former celebrated player, and Miracle Man, Debbah noted that he is coming to the national team, not as a ‘messiah’ to save Liberian football, but rather as someone to impart discipline to his would-be charges.Truth be told, Debbah knows that Liberian soccer was having many problems, including players and administrative discipline before the outbreak of the Ebola Virus Disease.Indiscipline was rife among players and administrators. For instance, due to the Liberian government’s apparent lack of interest in developing a good national team, critical funds are always not available. The failure to provide needed funds to get better results shows indiscipline of the owners of the team that can work against any determined coach; please ask Coaches Kaetu Smith, Thomas Kojo and Frank Jericho Nagbe about their experiences with the LFA and Youth & Sports.There are instances where players and officials travel on national assignments without per diems. Lone Star’s recent friendly trip to Equatorial Guinea and Junior Lone Star’s CAF return-leg trip to Abidjan are cases in point.At the time of writing, jerseys and other materials belonging to Jr. Lone Star are sitting somewhere in New Kru Town, since they were seized by the players. Their contention was and is that per diems promised them must be paid before the materials are returned to the LFA.Debbah should also understand that the failure of previous coaches, including J. Kaetu Smith, Frank Jericho Nagbe and Thomas Kojo as national coaches were not because they did not know their job. With all due respect Smith, Kojo and Nagbe possessed CAF recognized credentials.It would also be important for Debbah to investigate why those coaches could not make a difference. Interestingly Kojo and even Kervin Sebwe are part of the current appointed coaches and therefore they should tell him why things never worked on the coaching side as well as on the administrative side.Coach Kaetu Smith, without argument is one of the most disciplined coaches Liberia can boast of. Why, then did he not achieve much progress? It would be a wise decision for Debbah to talk to him.Since Debbah has consistently stressed that he would bring discipline to the team, how much discipline can we find in his character?  “Debbah is a changed man,” a friend who knows him well told the Daily Observer, “he has outgrown the things he did when he was young and actively playing in Liberia.”  Ok. But what are his credentials for such an important job? How much is the LFA prepared to pay him? Will his appointment benefits include a car and a residence? In a subsequent examination, we’ll find out how much discipline Coach Debbah has gained for himself to be able to give players that would be under him. While playing professional is one thing, to coach others is a different science altogether that only those who have prepared, are sure to make the difference that Liberian football is crying for and Coach Debbah has promised to deliver.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Women drawn to scent of a man

first_imgThe researchers measured the women’s levels of the stress hormone cortisol and compared them with the women’s responses to a control odor. Cortisol levels in the women rose within about 15 minutes of inhaling the androstadienone scent and remained elevated for more than an hour, UC Berkeley researchers found. They also discovered that blood pressure, heart rate and breathing increased, mood improved and sexual arousal was boosted. While the compound can make women feel more positive and sexually aroused, it’s still unclear how it affects their behavior, Wyart said. “Humans are more complex,” she said. “You cannot expect them to have stereotypical responses like rodents.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! BERKELEY – A chemical in male sweat can boost mood, brain activity and sexual arousal in heterosexual women, according to a new study released just in time for Valentine’s Day. The study offers the first direct evidence that humans secrete a scent that can affect the physiology of the opposite sex, said researchers at the University of California, Berkeley. Their findings were published this past week in The Journal of Neuroscience. “This is the first time anyone has demonstrated that a change in women’s hormonal levels is induced by sniffing an identified compound of male sweat,” said study leader Claire Wyart, a postdoctoral fellow at UC Berkeley. “There is much more going on than we think when we are smelling body odor.” The study conducted last year involved 48 undergraduate women who took 20 sniffs from a bottle containing androstadienone, a compound found in male perspiration and other bodily secretions. last_img read more

Guardiola tells City history men to keep at it

first_img0Shares0000Manchester City’s manager Pep Guardiola (C) celebrates at the end of their match against Manchester United in Manchester, north west England, on December 10, 2017 © AFP / Oli SCARFFSWANSEA, United Kingdom, Dec 14 – Pep Guardiola has demanded no let-up from his history-making Manchester City side after they recorded a record-breaking 15th straight Premier League win.Guardiola paid tribute to his table-topping team after they brushed aside Swansea City 4-0 on Wednesday to set a new English top-flight record for successive victories. Their win in South Wales eclipsed Arsenal’s record of 14 consecutive wins in the top division, set across two seasons in 2002, and Guardiola said his players were in no mood to stop now.“I am so happy because our job depends on if we win, so if we win we are so happy in our lives and in our jobs,” said the City manager, whose side remain 11 points clear.“In history there were amazing things like Liverpool in the 80s and Manchester United with Sir Alex Ferguson or Chelsea with Jose Mourinho. There were some amazing teams.“But we are the first ones to win 15 in a row. If we win the title it will just be a record and this record will be broken, but of course it will not be easy.“Because 15 games in a row in the Premier League in this period is really complicated.”City have required late winners in several of their victories, but Guardiola said that simply reflected their desire to win.“Of course we were lucky in some moments and we scored in the last minutes, I remember at Bournemouth for example,” he said.“But it means a lot in the faith and desire to win again and again and again.“We are going to try not to stop, to show that feeling to the fans, so when they watch us they know the guys want to win again and again and again. We want to try to maintain it as much as possible.”– Silva ‘is a star’ –David Silva scored twice as Guardiola’s men dismantled Swansea and the City manager hailed the Spanish midfielder’s newly acquired taste for goals after four in his last three games.“He is a real leader in terms of never hiding on the pitch and I am so, so happy because I spoke with him many times and said: ‘You have to score goals,’” Guardiola said.“Because he has absolutely everything, but sometimes he was thinking more about the pass and now in the last games, at West Ham it was a winning goal and again at Old Trafford.“He is a star, but now he is enjoying scoring goals. That is so important because we cannot just depend on Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero. We have many options to score goals and that is so important for us.”Swansea manager Paul Clement saw his side well beaten, with Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero also on target, but despite his admiration for City, he said his side had contributed to their own downfall.“To be on the receiving end of that was very difficult,” said Clement, whose team remain at the foot of the table.“We knew it was going to be a difficult night, but I would say they are one of the best sides I have ever come across.“They do the basics, the ugly side of the game. They make it really hard for you. It was a comfortable victory for them.“I thought we became very passive, showing too much respect –- we were not aggressive enough. It was not about putting a striker on to go for it, but just to get upfield.“It was a tough evening. “They are a really, really top side.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Rooney is better for Man United in midfield at the moment, says Van Gaal

first_imgMan United manager Louis van Gaal hailed captain Wayne Rooney’s tireless work-rate in the club’s 3-1 win against Newcastle at Old Trafford.“He has the lung capacity to run 90 minutes as a midfielder, so that’s why I use him as a midfielder,” Van Gaal said.“But I can also use him as a striker. But for the team, at the moment, it is better that he plays in midfield.”Rooney scored twice and created another and Van Gaal praised his display.“When [one of your players] scores two goals and assists another, then you are very happy as a manager, but he is also happy I assume.”The Old Trafford boss also spoke of his frustration at not being able to properly prepare ahead of the trip to Tottenham on Sunday.“I cannot prepare my team the way I have to prepare them. Normally we have unit meetings, team meetings and 11 against 11 training sessions, assimilating opponents but we cannot do that now and we have to play within 48 hours.“With FIFA and UEFA’s rules it’s forbidden to play within 48 hours. In England, it’s okay.”last_img read more

Everton 0-2 Manchester City: Nasri and Kolarov send Manuel Pellegrini’s men top of the Premier League

first_img Aleksandar Kolarov 1 Goals from Aleksandar Kolarov and Samir Nasri were enough to see off Everton as Manchester City moved to the top of the Premier League table.Both teams came close to breaking the deadlock but it was not until after the half-time when Kolarov finished from an almost impossible angle.Nasri made sure of the win at the death with another well-taken finish to continue City’s perfect start to the season.City almost went ahead immediately through Sergio Aguero but Tim Howard moved smartly to block the shot with his legs.It was the same outcome again minutes later as the Argentine was denied for a second time before Raheem Sterling was guilty of missing a clear-cut chance at the back post.Everton had the ball in the net after 23 minutes when Romelu Lukaku the ball around Joe Hart but was correctly judged to have been offside after receiving the pass from Ross Barkley.On the stroke of half-time, Lukaku clipped the crossbar from a free-kick after Tom Cleverley’s driving run was illegally halted by Fernandinho.City shot out of the blocks after the break as Sterling cut in from the left and found David Silva in space who blasted the ball against the post.And it was another moment of magic from Sterling which led to the opening goal.Again cutting in from the right, he played a perfectly weighted ball to Kolarov who beat the offside trap to finish expertly from a very tight angle to put Manuel Pellegrini’s men in front.It was nearly two moments later as Jesus Navas capitalised on a defensive mix-up, but was denied by the face of Howard after neglecting to pass to the better-placed Aguero.Gareth Barry almost nicked a draw for the hosts but Vincent Kompany cleared the ball of the line.And City secured the win on 88 minutes after a fantastic one-two between Yaya Toure and Nasri, before the latter lobbed the ball over a helpless Howard.last_img read more

first_imgTir Chonaill Gaels Club Notes 29th October 2012 Senior League final: The club won its thirteenth senior league title at the weekend with a 1-9 to 0-7 win over St Kiernan’s. In front of many travelling supporters who had travelled over from Ireland and who were attending the clubs 50th Gala Ball that evening, the seniors delivered their second senior trophy of the year by completing the league and championship double. However, it was not a great game and with the Gaels missing five players from the championship final they faced a tough and resilient St Kiernan’s team. It was the St Kiernan’s that actually took the game to the Gaels and played the better football, however, in the first half Kevin “Woppa” McMenamin scored the only goal of the game that virtually won the game for the Gaels as it put them in the lead for the first time and they pretty much held that to the final whistle.Best for the Gaels on the day were Luke Kavanagh, David McGreevey, Coleman Hands and Kevin McMenamin (1-2)Meanwhile, the U-21s got a walk-over from Parnell’s at the weekend and are now scheduled to play Tara/ Harlesden Harps in the final.50th Celebration Weekend The club celebrated in style over the weekend the wonderful milestone of 50 years as a club.
