United heartbreaker!

first_imgMANCHESTER, England (AP): In one of the most entertaining matches of the English Premier League, Manchester United squandered a two-goal lead, went back in front through an exquisite 79th-minute shot from Wayne Rooney and then conceded a 90th-minute goal to draw at Newcastle 3-3 yesterday. “It feels like a defeat,” said Louis Van Gaal, whose side slipped to sixth. “We have given it away.” A positive for United was the performance of Rooney, who scored twice, set up the other goal by Jesse Lingard, and put in an impressive all-round performance. Goals by Georginio Wijnal-dum and Aleksandar Mitrovic, also from a penalty, brought Newcastle level from 0-2 down. With seconds left of regulation time, United failed to clear, and Paul Dummett advanced from left back to fire in a fierce shot from the edge of the area that deflected into the top corner. “It is the best feeling in the world,” the Newcastle-born Dummett said. Last-place Aston Villa collected their first win since the opening day, beating Crystal Palace 1-0 courtesy of a goalkeeping error by Wayne Hennessey. Also, West Ham came from behind to beat Bournemouth 3-1, with Enner Valencia scoring twice, and fit-again playmaker Dimitri Payet scoring the other goal for the visitors. West Ham moved into fifth place, above Man United.last_img read more

Argentina Fans Kaattoorkadavu review Kalidas Jayaram disappoints again

first_imgA Still From Argentina Fans KaattoorkadavuKalidas Jayaram entered the Malayalam film industry as a child actor through the movie ‘Kochu Kochu Santhoshangal’, and his brilliant performance in that film made many Mollywood fans believe that he was a Superstar in the making. However, the actor who came back into the industry as a solo hero failed to live up to the expectations, and his recent release ‘Argentina Fans Kaattoorkadavu’ loudly proclaims the fact that the actor should concentrate more on script selection.The story of fanship set in the backdrop of a villageDirected by Midhun Manuel Thomas, ‘Argentina Fans Kaattoorkadavu’ is set in a small village in Thrissur named Kaattoorkadavu. The village is known for its love towards football, and there are two major groups of football fans in the area. The group of Argentina fans is led by Vipinan (Kalidas Jayaram) while Mehrunneesa (Aishwarya Lekshmi) leads Brazil fans.Even though both of them are arch rivals when it comes to football, they share positive chemistry in their real life, and moreover, Vipinan has been loving Mehrunneesa from his school days.The fight between Argentina and Brazil fans that happens during World Cup Football tournaments form the major crux of the movie.Average direction and derailed screenplaySports dramas set in the backdrop of villages are not new in the Malayalam film industry, and audiences have witnessed similar movies in the past that includes ‘1983’ and ‘Godha’. Both these movies succeed as sports thrillers, and these films can also boast about a strong storyline. However, when it comes to ‘Argentina Fans Kaattoorkadavu’, the director fails miserably to craft a sports drama with some substance. The thrill elements of sports were limited to some world cup matches that we see on television screens.Midhun Manuel Thomas failed to extract the best from Kalidas Jayaram. In some scenes, especially in comic sequences, the actor went over the board, and it literally disappointed the audiences. However, Aishwarya Lekshmi succeeded in living up to the expectations, and she is the only saving grace of the movie.As usual, Gopi Sundar did a neat job as the musician, and his background score played a crucial role in elevating the mood of the movie in many crucial moments.Final VerdictKalidas Jayaram should be very careful while selecting scripts, and if it goes like this, he may face the fate encountered by Shahnavas Prem Nazir in the past.last_img read more

Over 50 feared killed in Myanmar jade mine landslide

first_imgLocal people look on in a jade mine where the mud dam collapsed in Hpakant, Kachin state, Myanmar on 23 April 2019. Photo: ReutersMore than 50 people are feared killed after a landslide in northern Myanmar engulfed jade miners while they were sleeping, local police said Tuesday, the latest deadly accident in a notoriously dangerous industry.Dozens die each year in landslides caused by jade mining, a notoriously corrupt and poorly regulated industry concentrated near the country’s border with China.Local police described a freak accident in Kachin state on Monday night so big it created a huge “mud lake” that buried the miners as well as some 40 vehicles.”Fifty-four people are missing in the mud,” a duty officer from Hpakant township police station told AFP, asking not to be named, adding that only two bodies had been recovered so far.”There’s no way they (the missing) could have survived.”The Ministry of Information confirmed the accident and number of missing, adding that the area was mined by Myanmar Thura Gems and Shwe Nagar Koe Kaung companies.Myanmar Thura Gems director Hla Soe Oo told AFP by phone he was en route to the site but did not have further details.Local media shared images, unverified by AFP, that showed the walls of a mine stretching vertically a couple of hundred metres above a vast pool of mud, revealing only the tops of two yellow excavation vehicles.Local people look on in a jade mine where the mud dam collapsed in Hpakant, Kachin state, Myanmar on 23 April 2019. Photo: ReutersHundreds of onlookers gathered nearby, staring at the disaster site and taking photos with their phones.Fatal landslides are common in the mines with victims often from impoverished ethnic communities looking for scraps left behind by big firms.A major landslide in November 2015 left more than 100 dead.The jade industry is largely driven by an insatiable demand from neighbouring China.Watchdog Global Witness estimated that it was worth some $31 billion in 2014, although very little reaches state coffers.Northern Myanmar’s abundant natural resources — including jade, timber, gold and amber — help finance both sides of a decades-long civil war between ethnic Kachin insurgents and the military.The fight to control the mines and the revenues they bring frequently traps local civilians in the middle.A 17-year ceasefire broke down in 2011 and since then more than 100,000 people have been displaced by fighting.On coming to power in 2016, civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi promised to make the peace process with the country’s myriad armed groups her top priority — a pledge that has yet to yield significant results.last_img read more

Lyft Replaces Glowstache With Amp Dashboard Light

first_img 2 min read Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Ridesharing service Lyft will ring in the new year with a new type of taxi light.Come 2017, the company is shaving off its pink Glowstache, replacing it with a less hairy in-car connected device — Amp.  “With the introduction of Amp comes the retirement of Lyft’s beloved pink mustache, which has evolved from the fuzzy Carstache on car grilles, to the sleek Glowstache dashboard ornament,” Ethan Eyler, Lyft’s head of ride experience, said in a statement.”Both paved the way for Amp, which will sit on dashboards, illuminating the streets with an iconic glow while better connecting drivers and passengers,” he added.Starting Dec. 31, the in-car connected device will make drivers’ and passengers’ ride-sharing experience “smarter, safer and more fun.”Rolling out first to folks in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and New York City, Amp is expected to hit the road in all of Lyft’s 200-plus markets by mid-2017.The Beats Pill speaker-shaped accessory attaches to the vehicle’s dashboard, making it visible through the windshield; commuters can identify their ride by matching an individual Amp’s color to that displayed in their mobile app.Messages, meanwhile, are pushed through a Bluetooth connection to the hidden screen on the back of the gadget.Lyft also revealed its latest brand campaign: Ride on the Bright Side. Four 30-second TV spots (video above) and outdoor advertising are set to run through the end of 2016, highlighting the company’s experience, driver quality and safety.That safety-first attitude is underscored by a recent partnership with Budweiser: Through Dec. 31, any passenger 21 years or older can get a free ride (valued up to $10) from Lyft on weekends and holidays.The Uber competitor, however, landed in hot water early this month when researchers uncovered a “pattern of racial discrimination by drivers” using the ridesharing apps.
