Could you give up your strongest held beliefs?Would you give up your experience and your ability to take the role of beginner? Would you assume the role of student? Is it possible to give up what you have learned to take in new information and gain new experiences?Could you abandon the habits you’ve developed over a lifetime and trade them in for new habits, even if it meant devoting yourself to building them over the next 6 months? If this is what you had to do to have what you really want, could you?Are you willing to try something new even if you risked failing—or even embarrassing yourself in the process of practicing something necessary to move you closer to your goals?Will you give yourself the same advice you would give others if they needed to embrace the discomfort of ideas they don’t like, give up the competencies they’ve gained over time, develop new and difficult to run in habits, and risk failing and maybe even a loss of face if it meant they would attain their goals.If what you are doing now was enough for you to meet your goals, you would already have those goals. You can have anything you want, provided you are willing to pay the price and persist long enough to have it. Part of paying that price means giving up your comfort, your beliefs, your experience, and your habits. It means you take on new information, even information, ideas, and beliefs you have resisted—and maybe vehemently and publicly opposed.To have what you want, you don’t have to give anything, but you do have to give what is necessary—and what is necessary isn’t always easy to give.
Gianluigi Buffon’s agent said a return to Juventus is “just an idea” for now as he seemingly admitted negotiations are underway to bring the legendary goalkeeper back to Turin.Buffon is a free agent after leaving Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain following one season in the French capital.The 41-year-old swapped Juventus for PSG in 2018-19 but Buffon could be set for a return to the Serie A champions, where he won the Scudetto nine times.

Responding to reports that Buffon is in talks to become Wojciech Szczesny’s understudy before taking up a role as a director, Silvano Martina told SportItalia : “For now, it’s just an idea.”Buffon spent 17 years at Juventus after arriving from Parma for a then-world record fee 2001.The Italian great added five Supercoppa Italiana and four Coppa Italia titles to his collection, while he was a Champions League runner-up on three occasions.Buffon then moved to PSG in 2018, winning the Ligue 1 and Trophee des Champions in his only season with Thomas Tuchel’s side.The legendary goalkeeper has been noncommittal when talking about his future to date, hinting earlier this month that he might even take the year off to decide on the next move in his career.”PSG told me five months ago that I would be the second goalkeeper next season,” Buffon told Corriere dello Sport . “I had plenty of time to think about it and I came to the conclusion that this was not for me, so I gave up a lot of money and a one-year option.”Their request was absolutely legitimate, understandable and was an attractive offer. “However, at the age of 41, I have this almost physiological need to feel sensations. Emotions translate into energy, dreams, the feeling of being part of something.”Today I find myself in a situation like last summer, in an extraordinary state of serenity, in a state of total relaxation where everything is open and it could all end in twelve months or in fifteen days. “Some good proposals have arrived, but if I don’t have the right motivation I can decide to take a year all for myself, all mine. One year of education.”

Minister of Industry, Investment and Commerce, Hon. Anthony Hylton, is encouraging members of the Consular Corps to assist in attracting investment from the global trading community, in the development of Jamaica’s global transshipment and logistics hub. Mr. Hylton extended the invitation during an awards dinner hosted by the Consular Corps of Jamaica for visiting directors of the World Federation of Consuls at the Wyndham Hotel in Kingston on Friday (January 25). “We know that this logistics hub, will extend the reach and borders of our traditional industries while facilitating the growth and development of new and diversified industries that will move the country further up the global value chain. We invite your partnership and support as we seek to take our big idea to the world,” he said. “You can help us in a number of ways, spread the word, tell your network of influencers in your respective jurisdictions that Jamaica is a global asset. Tell them that we are open for their ideas and their investments; tell them that there is a first mover advantage if they move now and if they do so quickly,” he added. [RELATED: Logistics Hub to Stimulate and Sustain Growth – Minister Hylton] Mr. Hylton said the development of the hub, which is estimated to cost between US$7 billion and US$8 billion, over a five to 10 year period, is being spearheaded by the Government in an effort to position Jamaica to take advantage of the anticipated increased maritime activities, expected to result from the expansion of the Panama Canal by 2015. The Minister said the development of the hub would make it the fourth such facility globally, along with those in Singapore, Dubai, United Arab Emirates and Rotterdam, Netherlands. Central to the development are: dredging of the Kingston Harbour; expansion of the Port of Kingston; development of the Caymanas Economic Zone, a transshipment commodity port, and Vernamfield in Clarendon as an air-cargo and passenger facility; and establishment of a dry dock facility. The Minister highlighted that Jamaica is ideally positioned for the establishment of the hub, based on its location, midway between North and South America, and in relative proximity to the Panama Canal. He said the island is already a major transshipment corridor and is the leading transshipment point for containerized cargo to the Caribbean, North and South America. Mr. Hylton said the plan is to expand the current infrastructure and to add new facilities, services and arrangements in order to create a cohesive network of logistics and shipping facilities that will position Jamaica to become the fourth such facility. “Jamaica’s surplus of professional and skilled workforce will be a primary factor in the success of Jamaica’s logistics hub and the corollary initiative such as the establishment of an international financial services centre. We will also be relying on our robust and expansive telecommunications infrastructure across the island as well as our extensive subsea fibre network,” he added. The newly elected board of directors of the World Federation of Consuls, a global network of Consular Associations created to support and improve the status, legitimacy and effectiveness of all consular officers in all receiving States, has been in Jamaica from January 23 to 26 for its second board meeting of which Arnold Foote has been presiding over.
A national strategy is being developed by the Government to ensure the continuity of its operation and that of state entities, in the event Jamaica is severely impacted by major natural disasters, such as an earthquake or intense hurricane.The plan is being facilitated under the 2016/17 Jamaica-Mexico Bilateral Cooperation Agreement, which entails the implementation of projects in 13 areas, including agriculture, the environment and disaster prevention.Its development is being spearheaded by the Office of Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Management (ODPEM), with technical assistance from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Jamaica.The UNDP’s input has facilitated a scoping mission of an initial 14 state entities by a special consultant to assess their status and state of readiness, with the initial report outlining proposals and recommendations slated to be submitted to ODPEM shortly.Details were unveiled during a Jamaica-Mexico Bilateral Cooperation Programme stakeholders meeting at ODPEM’s head office in New Kingston, on June 23.Local Government and Community Development Minister, Hon. Desmond McKenzie, who has portfolio responsibility for disaster preparedness and emergency management, emphasized the importance of the plan’s development in light of the fact that a number of the Government’s key governance agencies were located close to the Kingston harbour.These, he said, include: Parliament; the Bank of Jamaica; Supreme Court and Court of Appeal; Petrojam refinery; and Kingston Public and Victoria Jubilee Hospitals.Mr. McKenzie said Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, has also emphasized the need for securing and preserving Jamaica’s governance framework during a natural disaster, adding that he gave a charge for this to be an integral part of Jamaica’s disaster preparedness protocol.In this regard, the Minister expressed gratitude for the stakeholder support and inputs facilitating the strategy’s development, and gave the Government’s undertaking for its completion.
Kota: The body of a 21-year-old married woman was found hanging inside a well at a village in Rajasthan’s Jhalawar district, police said on Sunday.According to the complaint, the woman’s husband, Nanuram Tanwar, had been torturing her for dowry ever since they were married two years ago, Ghatoli police station incharge Nainuram Meena said.

Lassie, the iconic collie whose latest role is animal ambassador for Save the Children, visited Congress Wednesday to inspire leaders to join her in protecting children from disaster.Lassie joins Rep. Grace Meng (D-NY) and Save the Children’s Erin Bradshaw in leading a pledge to protect children from disasterCredit/Copyright: Joshua Roberts 2015Nearly 10 years after Hurricane Katrina woke up the nation up to the extreme dangers disasters can pose to children right here in the United States, Lassie made her Hill visit en route to lead Save the Children Prep Rallies at local schools. The events are part of America’s PrepareAthon!, a grassroots campaign for action to get people better prepared for emergencies through group discussions, drills and exercises.Lassie shakes paws with Sophia M. Anwar, a staffer for Rep. Brenda LawrenceCredit/Copyright: Joshua Roberts 2015“Lassie’s devotion to keeping kids safe is well known and she is an amazing addition to Save the Children’s emergency preparedness team. But let’s be frank, Lassie can’t be in all places at all times. We need you all to take leadership in protecting children from disaster,” Erin Bradshaw, director of Save the Children’s Get Ready Get Safe initiative, told attendees at Wednesday’s Capitol Hill briefing.“That means acting now to protect the little ones in your own families as well as every child in the communities you represent across the United States,” she added. “Children are not just little adults and their unique needs must be planned for in advance of a disaster.”Today a majority of U.S. families do not have a strong emergency plan in place and 21 states and the District of Columbia still lack basic requirements for emergency plans in schools and child care facilities, Save the Children experts told attendees. At the same time more than half of U.S families report having been personally affected by disaster.“We simply can’t wait for the next disaster to make sure we’ve done our best to protect our nation’s children,” said Rep. Grace Meng (D-NY). “Take it from my constituents, many of whom struggled to protect their kids from major devastation during and after Hurricane Sandy. There is still much work to be done to protect children and make sure their families get the services they need in times of crisis. I urge my colleagues to join me in making this a priority.”Prep Rallies and America’s PrepareAthon!After leading a pledge to protect children from disaster and posing for photos, Lassie left Capitol Hill for Mundo Verde Charter School in the NoMa neighborhood of Northwest Washington DC.There, Lassie led 90 first-, second- and third-graders in a Save the Children “Prep Rally,” which teaches kids emergency preparedness basics including how to recognize risks, make a plan, and gather disaster supplies. Through interactive demonstrations like the un-telephone game and disaster supplies relay race, children learned critical safety skills that they can take home and share with their families.Thursday, preparedness efforts will continue across the nation and in Washington, where Lassie is slotted to lead another “Prep Rally” at a child care center at the Department of Labor.New Research to Reveal Post-Katrina GapsIn July, Save the Children will release its annual Disaster Report Card in advance of the Katrina 10-year anniversary. The report will detail what progress has been made and what gaps remain for protecting children from disaster since the National Commission on Children and Disasters formed after Katrina made a series of urgent recommendations.Families and caregivers can find emergency checklists and other Get Ready Get Safe resources at www.SavetheChildren.org/checklists.Source:Save the Children
The chances of Dananjaya being selected for the Kandy Test had already been reduced since he endured a wretched game in Galle, where he took two for 183 in the match while scoring only eight runs in his two innings. Definitely out of the remainder of the series is Sri Lanka’s captain Dinesh Chandimal because of a groin injury. Charith Asalanka, who scored an unbeaten half-century against England in a warm-up match, has been called up as a replacement. (Courtesy The Guardian) Sri Lanka’s off-spinner Akila Dananjaya was reported for a suspect bowling action during the first Test against England.The match officials’ report which was handed over to the Sri Lanka team management cited concerns about the 25-year-old’s action, which will be scrutinised further under the ICC process laid down for international cricket. Dananjaya is required to undergo testing within 14 days but he is permitted to continue bowling in international cricket until the results of the testing are known.
MIRA, the international vehicle engineering and test business headquartered in the UK, has announced its intention to create Europe’s most advanced independent transport technology facility, which involves a £300 million investment in a new 155,000sqm campus at its 850 acre site in the Midlands.Aligned with the UK’s global leadership in low carbon technologies, one of the areas that MIRA anticipates will help fuel its rapid growth is low carbon transportation. The development plan aims to ensure that the business has the capacity to match its capability over the next 30 years, and coincides with the British engineering company’s 65th anniversary.Commenting on the announcement, CEO George Gillespie said “MIRA is a fantastic opportunity for the UK. We have the capability to take the lead in emerging technologies, such as low carbon vehicles and intelligent mobility, that are becoming desirable throughout the world and to attract international companies looking for advanced engineering expertise and facilities.”Engineering consultancy now represents the majority of MIRA’s business, providing design engineering, computer simulation, test development, validation and certification services to customers from various sectors. In 2010, MIRA recruited 70 new staff and its continued growth in the UK alone is expected to generate more than 2,000 jobs over a 10 year period.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)
This reform is complemented by the government’s acceptance of the Fianna Fáil proposal to allow the FSO to publish the complaints record of individual finance service providers. FIANNA FÁIL HAVE published a bill that they hope will give people more time to complain about mis-sold items.The Mis-sold Financial Products bill aims to extend the current six-year limit on complaints to the Financial Services Ombudsman (FSO).Fianna Fáil’s finance spokesperson, Michael McGrath, said that the current limitation was “overly restrictive” and was preventing otherwise valid complaints from being made to the FSO.“For example, when it comes to certain investment products, endowment mortgages and payment protection policies, it can take a decade or more before the consumer becomes aware they were sold a pup,” he said.He went on to say: The government is providing for the publication of the complaints records in the Central Bank (Supervision and Enforcement) Bill 2011 currently at committee stage.Read: Complaints to Financial Services Ombudsman up 12% last year >

Attendants offer a minute of silence during the 72nd anniversary memorial service for the atomic bomb victims at the Peace Memorial Park in Hiroshima. Photo: AFPJapan on Sunday marked 72 years since the world’s first nuclear attack on Hiroshima, with the nation’s traditional contradictions over atomic weapons again coming into focus.The anniversary came after Japan sided last month with nuclear powers Britain, France and the US to dismiss a UN treaty banning atomic weapons, which was rejected by critics for ignoring the reality of security threats such as North Korea.Japan is the only country to have suffered atomic attacks, in 1945.Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, speaking at the annual ceremony at Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park near the ground zero, said Japan hoped to push for a world without nuclear weapons in a way that all countries can agree.“For us to truly pursue a world without nuclear weapons, we need participation from both nuclear-weapons and non-nuclear weapons states,” Abe said in his speech at the annual ceremony.“Our country is committed to leading the international community by encouraging both sides” to make progress toward abolishing nuclear arms, Abe added without directly referring to the UN treaty.Japanese officials have criticised the UN Nuclear Weapon Ban Treaty as deepening a divide between countries with and without nuclear arms. None of the nine countries that possess nuclear weapons took part in the negotiations or vote on the treaty.Japanese officials routinely argue that they abhor nuclear weapons, but the nation’s defence is firmly set under the US nuclear umbrella.Japan suffered two nuclear attacks at the end of the World War II by the United States-in Hiroshima on August 6, 1945 and in Nagasaki three days later.The bombings claimed the lives of 140,000 people in Hiroshima and 74,000 people in Nagasaki. Some died immediately while others succumbed to injuries or radiation-related illnesses weeks, months and years later.Japan announced its surrender in World War II on August 15, 1945.Many in Japan feel the attacks amount to war crimes and atrocities because they targeted civilians and due to the unprecedented destructive nature of the weapons.But many Americans believe they hastened the end of a bloody conflict, and ultimately saved lives, thus justifying the bombings.Barack Obama became the first sitting US president to visit Hiroshima in May last year, paying moving tribute to victims of the devastating bomb.

Kolkata: Two separate incidents of fire took place in the city on Saturday afternoon with no casualties or injuries being reported.A fire broke out at the second floor of an old two-storeyed building on Elliot Road on Saturday triggering panic among the residents of the building at the time of the incident. Five fire tenders were pressed into action and the situation was brought under control after nearly two hours.Some of the locals spotted smoke billowing out of a room situated on the second floor of the building that lacked any fire fighting mechanism. The matter was immediately reported to the fire brigade. The fire fighters initially faced difficulties to spot the source as thick black smoke had already covered the area.

The employees fled the building after a fire alarm was triggered by the locals. According to preliminary investigation, the fire officials suspect that the old building had no fire safety mechanism in place and steps will be taken against the owners if any lapses are found. The cause of the fire and extent of the damage are yet to be ascertained.In another incident, a fire broke out from the meter box of a multi-storeyed building on Sambhunath Pandit Street on Saturday afternoon.

It’s been over 30 years since the release of the classic dystopian future science fiction film The Running Man starring none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger at the height of his popularity, 1987. Although the film had lackluster reviews from critics it was extremely popular with audiences and continues to be a cult favorite amongst sci-fi geeks throughout the world. It could also be considered especially relevant now considering the movie takes place around our present time, the year 2017 and onwards. Here is a collection of cool info you’ll want to know about the film even before you watch since this article doesn’t contain any spoilers.#1 – Future Leaders GaloreWe all know about the political success of Arnold Schwarzenegger following his career as one of the world’s most adored action heroes. He would go on to become the Governor of California from 2003 until 2011. Giving props to his background as an action hero was part of the campaign and he appropriately named his campaign tour bus The Running Man after the film.What you may not have known is that Jesse Ventura is also in the film as the stalker Captain Freedom. Ventura would go on to join the political scene as well, running for office in Minnesota as Governor with the Reform Party. Ventura won the election and served as Governor of Minnesota from 1999 until 2003, but chose not to seek reelection.#2 – Written by Stephen KingStephen King, American author, at the 2007 New York Comicon. Photo by “Pinguino” CC BY 2.0The film is based on a book published in 1982 by Stephen King under his alternate name, Richard Bachman, which King uses for books that he writes outside his normal horror/thriller genre.When producer Rob Cohen bought the rights to the film, he was unaware that King was the actual author. King is said to have found some inspiration for the book from a disturbingly real Japanese game show. However, the film adaptation veered sharply from King’s vision where a poor, underfed man chooses to join the Running Man game in order to win money to support his starving wife and child.Stephen King in 2011. Photo by Stephanie Lawton CC By 2.0King was severely disappointed in Schwarzenegger as the lead character since he certainly doesn’t look malnourished and King wanted his name nowhere near the credits. It’s food for thought if King would have felt the same way if Christopher Reeve or Patrick Swayze had been cast as the lead. Both actors were considered for the role.#3 – What a Great Idea!Following the release of the film, several game shows started utilizing similar formats to that of the film. The most popular of these “copycats” was the American Gladiators television program, which became popular in different versions throughout the world.Steven DeSouza, who wrote the screenplay, claims that when the creators of American Gladiators pitched the idea to producers they used film footage from the movie and stated, “We’re doing exactly like this, except the killing part.”#4 – Predicting the FutureThe film’s depiction of the future set around 2017 – 2019 has been remarkably accurate on many things including viewers obsessions for reality television, the influence of Hollywood in politics, more aggressive police, and “media spin” on news.Writers for the New York Post, BBC, and others have pointed to the widening gap of the rich and poor, economic collapses, and other social similarities portrayed in the film. Fortunately, we have evolved beyond the use of cassette tapes as a medium for music and we still don’t have “court appointed agents”. Not yet at least.#5 – Directors EverywhereStarsky and Hutch, circa 1977. Photo by Frank Edwards/Fotos International/Getty ImagesThe film had five different directors at one point or another. Three of the directors were fired during production and one backed out, before the final director finished out filming. In the end, Paul Michael Glaser aka Starsky from the T.V. show Starsky and Hutch took the reigns several weeks already into filming. Schwarzenegger was reportedly very unhappy with the switch from director Andrew Davis.In the end, Stephen King didn’t like Schwarzenegger who in turn didn’t like Glaser, but somehow the film went on to gross over $38 million in the U.S. alone, against a budget of $27 million.#6 – Musical CameosFleetwood Mac, Billboard magazine, 1977Fans of the 1980s will notice that two popular figures in 80s lore are featured on the same screen in the credits. However, only the most observant will notice the very Laker Girl-esque dance routines in the film choreographed by another future pop star.The leader of the “resistance” in the film is none other than the drummer and founder of the band Fleetwood Mac. Mick Fleetwood, who plays “Mic”. It states in the film that the police state has robbed him of his life’s work and stolen/erased his music.Fleetwood Mac in Saint Paul, Minnesota, in 2009. Photo by Weatherman90 CC BY 3.0Another member of the resistance is guitarist/performer Dweezil Zappa. A controversial MTV VJ from the 80’s and son of the famous Frank Zappa, Dweezil is at his 80s best with a red beret and studded jacket with pins fastened along the front. The dance routines were all choreographed by, then up and comer, Paula Abdul before she became a pop sensation and future American Idol judge.Paula Abdul, 42nd Emmy Awards, September 1990. Photo by Alan Light CC BY 2.0The actual music of the film doesn’t disappoint either and was done by two-time Grammy winner Harold Faltermeyer, who also did Beverly Hills Cop with its iconic musical theme. Other credits for Faltermeyer include the Top Gun and Fletch (with Chevey Chase) soundtracks. Additionally, he has worked as producer or other capacity with performers like Donna Summer, Falco, and Billy Idol.Related Video: Sylvester Stallone Turned Down a Fortune to Play Rocky#7 – Year of the AhhhhnoldArnold Schwarzenegger on the set of ‘Predator’. Photo by Sunset Boulevard/Corbis via Getty Images1987 was a good year for Schwarzenegger fans but his prolific work ethic presented a small problem for the studios as both The Running Man and Predator were set to be released in the summer of 1987. In order to keep audiences from having to choose between two Arnold films, The Running Man was given a later release date of November of that year. As a result, both films were commercial successes.Read another story from us: Schwarzenegger and James Cameron Return for New Terminator MovieIn a twist of fate, 1987 could have been the year of the “Governor” also since Jesse Ventura also co-starred in Predator with Schwarzenegger.Bonus point:Of course, no Schwarzenegger film would be complete without his famous one-liners and The Running Man doesn’t disappoint. In one exchange with co-star Richard Dawson’s character “Killian”, Schwarzenegger tells him, “I’ll be back.” To which “Killian” replies, “Only in a rerun.”
Top Stories – / 23 “I think the biggest thing is you have to be prepared, because you never know when it’s going to happen,” said Stanton. “I think 2010 was the last time I’ve started a game or even touched the field. It was awhile for a meaningful game, but at the same time I think everything that you’re doing as back-up is trying to prepare as if that time is going to come. Because you don’t know when it’s going to come.“You’d hate to look back and say, ‘Gosh, I wish I would have prepared a little bit more. I wish I would have known exactly where I wanted to go with that read.’ But, I felt really good all week with everything. Felt good with the package, and we were able to come out here with a win.”Winning with Stanton behind center wasn’t a surprise at all to Arians, who insisted he had complete confidence in his backup’s ability to play a smart football game.“There was no question mark in my mind,” said Arians. “I’m sure all the fans went, ‘Oh my god.’ But, I’ve been around this kid for a long time. He reminds me a lot of Kelly Holcomb. He’s very accurate. He’s extremely smart. He’s tough. “He’s a starting quarterback in the National Football League. He just needs his opportunities, and when those guys get them they usually play really, really well because they’re extremely confident and smart in what they do.” For all intents and purposes, Stanton was a member of the Cardinals’ 10-6 squad a season ago — though he didn’t throw a pass let alone take a single snap in relief of Palmer.
