The son of a journeyman soccer player for Brazil’s smallest teams, Neymar was born in the industrial city of Mogi das Cruzes, some 60 kilometers north of Sao Paulo, the country’s biggest metropolis.He never settled there, as his father’s career as a striker and family breadwinner meant they were always moving on.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSWin or don’t eat: the Philippines’ poverty-driven, world-beating pool starsWhen Neymar was 6, the family moved in with his grandmother in Sao Vicente, a beach town 50 kilometers south of Sao Paulo. And when his sister Rafaella was born, the family moved again, this time to a bigger house in Jardim Gloria, a district in the poorer city of Praia Grande. Both homes were within reach of Santos, the Brazilian club made world famous by Pele and where the youngster first known as Juninho would start his own soccer career.While his family was anything but wealthy, Juninho was the richest kid around at Jardim Gloria. Robredo should’ve resigned as drug czar after lack of trust issue – Panelo DILG, PNP back suspension of classes during SEA Games Betinho said Neymar had the Brazilian football swagger even at that age, and began taking him to play futsal – Brazil’s brand of indoor soccer that puts a premium on technical skills. His amazing dribbling and shooting abilities were soon noticed, with the late Santos and Brazil star Zito bringing the youngster into the club.Juninho became Neymar Jr. after signing his first contract at 12, a move that made Barcelona and Real Madrid start to take a very close interest in the youngster.On the field, Neymar quickly adapted from the indoor game, often playing against much older opponents, and he fully embraced being a Santos player despite growing up as a fan of rival club Palmeiras.He made his professional debut at 17, in a match against Oeste in the 2009 Sao Paulo state championship, the start of a career that is set to make history in the sport.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Church, environmentalists ask DENR to revoke ECC of Quezon province coal plant Neymar’s house was properly built, not a shack like those of many of his school friends. His street was properly paved and allowed him to play barefoot all day long, though he didn’t have to walk far to find dirt roads surrounded by wild vegetation. While other kids were lucky to have many toys, he had 50 footballs in his home collection at age 14. He even had a video game, which was a dream for most of his neighbors.Neymar put down some solid roots during his nine years at Jardim Gloria, and today his charity – the Neymar Jr. Institute – is based in the area. The local dump, where some of the local people used to earn a living from recycling, has been closed and the district has improved dramatically since Neymar’s family first moved there more than a decade ago.As for the interest in soccer, that started when Neymar was just 2, according to his father.In 1998, at the age of 6, he was spotted by Betinho dos Santos, a talent scout for the club Santos and who had also discovered another Brazil star, Robinho.“Neymar’s father was playing on the beach in Sao Vicente, his mother was with the kid in the stands,” Betinho said in a recent interview for the player’s institute. “I saw that kid running around and he caught my attention. He already had agility and coordination. Of course he was very, very thin too. Then he started doing some tricks with the ball, tricks that a normal kid would never do. I was shocked.”ADVERTISEMENT

The Greek National Team defeated Australia 1-2 in today’s international friendly and recorded their first win outside of Greece since the 2014 World Cup. Greece has not been performing up to their standards in previous friendlies but put on a good showing against a tough opponent today. Mantalos opened the score while Maniatis’ goal from behind midfield was the the highlight of the game.The Greeks of Melbourne created a fantastic atmosphere for the National Team and welcomed the Galanolefki as The Greek National Anthem was heard throughout the Etihad Stadium. Greece was the better side in the opening minutes and opened the score when Samaris played a beautiful through ball to Mantalos, who found the back of the net. The goal came in the 8th minute and it was Mantalos’ first goal with the National Team. Greece gave space to Australia and looked to hit the Aussies on the counterattack, a playing style that seemed to benefit Greece. In the 21st minute, Maniatis scored a magnificent goal from behind midfield (55 meters), doubling Greece’s lead. The Greek midfielder saw the Australian goalie off his line and brilliantly scored his first goal with the National Team. In the second half, Australia controlled the possession, but failed to threaten Greece’s goal. The defense was headed by Papastathopoulos and the Galanolefki stood firm in the back, giving little opportunities to the home side. Australia’s first chance of the game came in the 49th minute from a corner and 4 minutes later, Torosidis came close to giving Greece a 3 goal lead. The Australians were able to cut the lead to one goal in the 58th minute with Sainsbury. Greece looked unprepared from set plays in yet another friendly match and conceded their only goal from a corner. Both teams failed to create chances towards the end of the second half and Greece celebrated their first win away from home since the 2014 World Cup (against the Ivory Coast).The win will help morale as Greece continues to prepare for FIFA World Cup Qualifying. The National Team will begin qualifying in October (could change to September) and have been drawn in Group H with Belgium, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Estonia, and Cyprus. Greece will have one more friendly match before qualifying begins. They are scheduled to play a tough opponent, the Netherlands, on September 1st. Greece’s friendly against Russia for September 6th will most likely will be canceled.Greece Line-Up: Kapino, Tzavellas, Papastathopoulos, Stafylidis, Torosidis, Maniatis (70′ Tziolis), Samaris, Cholebas (66′ Christodoulopoulos), Mantalos, Vellios, Bakasetas (79′ Papazoglou).Source: www.agonasport.comTweetPinShare0 Shares

Reuters Hong KongSeptember 26, 2019UPDATED: September 26, 2019 23:46 IST Men reacts as riot police try to disperse them at Wong Tai Sin, a residential area, after an anti-extradition bill protest in Hong Kong, China August 4, 2019. REUTERSHong Kong protesters chanting anti-government slogans blocked roads around a stadium where city leader Carrie Lam held a first open dialogue with the people on Thursday in her bid to end more than three months of often violent unrest.Police raised a blue flag warning of force if protesters did not disperse, a move that has commonly been followed by volleys of tear gas. But police did not respond.Hours later, just before midnight, the crowds had thinned and the chanting had stopped. Some police had put down their shields. It was not immediately clear when, or if, Lam had left the building.Inside the British colonial-era Queen Elizabeth Stadium, residents had earlier chastised Lam, accusing her of ignoring the public and exacerbating a crisis that has no end in sight.She had begun by saying her administration bore the heaviest responsibility for resolving the crisis.The whole storm was caused by the extradition bill initiated by the government, Lam said. If we want to walk away from the difficulty and find a way out, the government has to take the biggest responsibility to do so.Protests over the now-shelved extradition bill that would have allowed criminal suspects to be sent to mainland China for trial have evolved into broader calls for full democracy, in a stark challenge to China’s Communist Party leaders.The demonstrations resumed after the dialogue session was over, with activists blocking roads around the stadium with iron railings.The unrest followed an event that had been notable for not being the whitewash many predicted, with Lam directly facing off with an often critical and hostile audience, still aggrieved at the havoc they blame on the Beijing-backed leader and her team.advertisementProtesters are angry about what they see as creeping Chinese interference in Hong Kong, which returned to China in 1997 under a one country, two systems formula intended to guarantee freedoms that are not enjoyed on the mainland.Outside, large crowds of black-clad protesters chanted: Hong Kong people, add oil, a slogan meaning keep your strength up, while encircling the sports stadium and blocking exits.Lam held talks with 150 members of the community, with speakers criticising her for curbing electoral freedoms, ignoring public opinion and refusing to allow an independent inquiry into allegations of police brutality. One woman called on Lam to resign, saying she was no longer fit to lead.CALM DOWNLam listened, taking notes, before responding on occasion. She appealed for people to give her government a chance, while emphasising Hong Kong still had a bright future and a strong rule of law.I hope you all understand that we still care about Hong Kong society. Our heart still exists, she said. We will maintain our care for this society.She stressed again, however, that she saw no need at the moment for an independent inquiry, with an existing police complaint mechanism sufficient to meet public concerns.She also reiterated there was no way she could bow to the demand for charges against those arrested for rioting to be dropped.I am not shirking responsibility, but Hong Kong really needs to calm down, she said. We have to stop sudden violence breaking out… Violation of the law will result in consequences we have to bear.She also conceded limits to what she could do.There are some things that me and my colleagues cannot influence in society … but the dialogue will continue.China says it is committed to the one country, two systems arrangement and denies meddling. It has accused foreign governments, including the United States and Britain, of inciting the unrest.City rail services resumed on Thursday after being halted on Wednesday night at Sha Tin station, where protesters vandalised fittings for the second time this week.Rail operator MTR has at times suspended city rail services during the protests, preventing some demonstrators from gathering and thus making it a target of attack, with protesters vandalising stations and setting fires near some exits.When violence has flared, police have responded with tear gas, water cannon and rubber bullets.Hong Kong is on edge ahead of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China on Oct. 1, with authorities eager to avoid scenes that could embarrass the central government in Beijing. Activists have planned a whole host of protests on the day.The Asian financial hub also marks the fifth anniversary this weekend of the start of the Umbrella protests, a series of pro-democracy demonstrations in 2014 that failed to wrest concessions from Beijing.advertisementRead | Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam to hold first community talks to try to end crisisRead | What’s next for Hong Kong’s protest movementWatch | Inside the leaderless Hong Kong protestsGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

New Delhi: Rejecting the opposition’s allegation that the government is working to privatise the national transporter, Railway Minister Piyush Goyal Friday asserted there is “no question” of privatisation, but said the ministry will invite investments for new technology, lines and projects in national interest. Replying in the Lok Sabha to the discussion on Demands for Grants of the railways, Goyal reeled out figures to claim that the Narendra Modi government has performed much better in boosting both infrastructure and safety parameters of the national transporter as compared to the UPA era. Also Read – Squadrons which participated in Balakot air strike awarded citations on IAF Day During his hour-long speech there were frequent protests by Congress members, as their leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury accused him of misleading the House and he was backed by his party colleagues. Goyal also defended the decision to discontinue tabling of a separate railway budget in Parliament, calling them “political budgets” which were used to sell dreams of new trains and railway lines to people for winning elections. With several opposition leaders accusing the government of ushering in privatisation of the railways, Goyal noted that he had time and again rejected the claims and would reiterate again that there was no question of privatisation. Also Read – SC declines Oil Min request to stay sharing of documents on Reliance penalty “There is no question of privatisation of the railways. The railways cannot be privatised. However, if we have to increase the facilities in railways then obviously we need investments for it. We have taken a decision to encourage public private partnerships and we will also corporatise some units. “We should invite investment in national interest if someone is ready to get new technology, new stations, projects and lines,” the minister told the House. Goyal said that the Modi government had inherited a dilapidated railways, but had managed to turn it around in the past five years by laying new tracks, improving security and facilities for passengers. He said track kilometre grew by 39,000 km in 64 years, while in the past five years it grew by 7,000 km. Similarly, he said the railways increased its running kilometre by 12,000 km between 1950-2014, while from 2014-2019, it grew by 5,000 running kilometre. “The work for Dedicated Freight Corridor started in 2007. From 2007 to 2014, they had not even managed one kilometre of track linking. We took on this work and in just five years, we have completed 1900 km of track linking,” said Goyal. He further claimed that during the Congress rule, not one coach was manufactured in Rae Bareli’s Modern Coach Factory since 2007-2008 till 2014 and the first coach was made in August 2014 shortly after the BJP came to power. “We want the MCF to increase its manufacturing capacity to 5000 and the trains coming out of there go to the entire world. We want it to be the largest factory in the world,” he said. Goyal said that between 2004 and 2009, around 206 accidents took place every year, while the number was 153 between 2009 and 2011. He said that during the BJP’s tenure, it reduced to around 100 every year. The minister also highlighted how the government had installed around 2,10,000 bio-toilets in trains so far. Hitting out at successive state governments in West Bengal, Goyal said that several projects had been held up because the state was unable to provide land to railways. “The oldest project in West Bengal is running from 1974-75. The projects dont get completed because the government doesn’t give us land. If they give us land, work will immediately start,” he said, adding that similar problems were also faced in Kerala. Goyal’s reference to the alleged inaction of the UPA government to Mumbai train blasts, which had taken place on July 11, 2006, drew loud protests from the Congress, with its members shouting “shame on you”. He asserted that such terrorists would have been given a befitting reply had Modi been in power. Goyal also credited the prime minister for his focus on the railways and said the growth the sector had seen was largely because of his vision. “A tea vendor selling tea in front of trains during his childhood saw this country and understood the significance of the railways,” said Goyal.

Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram In a bid to fight corruption in the Northern Territory’s police force, ombudsman Peter Shoyer is calling for the government and NT police to review their policies. It comes after Former NT police chief John McRoberts resigned from his post after being investigated for interfering with a criminal investigation surrounding travel agent Xana (Alexandra) Kamitisis.She is facing 148 charges for defrauding a travel concession scheme. Police chief McRoberts was in a relationship with Kamitsis at the time.Ombudsman Shoyer, who brought the case against McRoberts, says McRoberts was bribed by Kamitisis.“In the course of their association, the travel agent also gave a number of personal gifts to the former commissioner,” Mr Shoyer said.Mr Shoyer has compiled a detailed report for the government, and suggests the establishment of an anti-corruption body and a review of police integrity policies.The NT Ombudsman Peter Shoyer is forcing NT Police and Government to review their policies, following the resignation of of a police commissioner involved in a major fraud scandal.The report also stressed the necessity of training and awareness programs for all levels, including senior management, in order to ensure that all officers develop and maintain the analytical skills and mindfulness to be able to identify and address integrity issues as they arise.
Stay on target Back in the days of geek prehistory, a T-shirt was a signal to the world around you that you cared about your nerdy pursuits enough to fly them like a flag. Companies like Graphitti Designs contracted with movie studios and comics publishers to create shirts with our favorite characters and sold them up on the walls of comic book stores and through mail order.The computer revolution has enabled the T-shirt world to become something totally new – affordable production and distribution means that shirts can be printed in small quantities and sold anywhere in the world. Starting with Threadless, dozens of companies popped up letting artists and designers show their stuff. It’s a better time than ever to be a geek fashionista, and if you’re looking to expand your wardrobe we’re going to help you out every week… on T-Shirt Tuesday.This week: celebrating America’s birthday with the best, geekiest patriotic shirts.All-Star Captain AmericaThe Converse All-Star might be the prototypical American sneaker – made from humble canvas, it’s been consistently in style for a century – the precursor to the Chuck Taylor, called the “Non-Skid,” was introduced in 1917. Basketball player Chuck Taylor lent his name to the shoe, and this design from swgpodcast subs in Steve Rogers, the original Captain America, in his place. It’s a clever design paying tribute to a pair of American icons.$20, buy it here.Robo-LincolnThis illustration by Rougaroux depicts one of America’s greatest Presidents in a clear-lined, etched style that makes Honest Abe sort of look like a robot. While there’s no hard evidence that Illinois’s favorite son wasn’t 100% composed of organic material, not being able to tell a lie is a sign of an artificial intelligence. You’re going to have to make your own mind up.$20, buy it here.BB-MericaBB-8, the charming little ball droid first spotted in The Force Awakens, has become an unofficial mascot for the new films. That means people are going to re-interpret his shape in a bunch of different ways. Show your love for both a galaxy far away and the land you live in with this shirt from designer beepboopbeepclothing, which wraps the little droid in the American flag.$20, buy it here.Guile WinnerOne of the most resolutely American fighting game characters of all time, Guile was a proud veteran with a wife, kids and a hell of a hairstyle. Celebrate his flash-kicking majesty with this shirt displaying his classic win pose from the original Street Fighter II. Kudos to Needy_Ninja for the sprite rip.$20, buy it here.American MadnessLet’s pay tribute to a fallen American hero in Randy Poffo, better known as the Macho Man Randy Savage. The Ohio-born wrestler was one of the most iconic performers in the business, a gravel-voiced madman famous for his flying elbow drop. Artist Gsweathers has taken Uncle Sam and kitted him out in the Macho Man’s famous Madness headband and wrap-around shades to create a design you can really snap into.$20, buy it here.Patriotic SharkWhen it comes to animals that we consider representing the American way of life, sharks are typically pretty low on that list. But if you ask artist nickv47, sharks are apparently patriotic all year round. His charming hand-drawn design shows us a man-eating fish with a tall Abe Lincoln top hat, a flowing hairstyle and a wee little flag clutched in its teeth as fireworks go off in the night sky above.$20, buy it here.New York BoysSteve Rogers is a Brooklyn boy, born and raised, and even though the borough has changed a lot since he was frozen in ice and defrosted, he still reps the hood. This clever graffiti-styled shirt from artist Punksthetic takes his movie uniform and gives it a spraypaint-syle renovation complete with a giant dookie rope. We could certainly see Cap stumbling his way into a cipher and busting some dope rhymes in this outfit.$20, buy it here.American Flag Sugar SkullThe legend of America is all about the melting pot, the fusion of multiple cultures together to create something truly unique. There has been a lot of ruckus lately about the influence of people from beyond our southern border, but you can’t deny that Mexicans have contributed to the United States in myriad ways beyond the humble taco. Show your support for the fusion of two cultures with this jeffbartels design that drapes the Stars & Stripes over a traditional Day of the Dead skull.$20, buy it here.America!One of the weirdest Japanese comics ever, Hetalia: Axis Powers takes World War II and transforms each country into a pretty little anime boy. It’s insanely popular, and if you want to signal to other heavy anime heads that you love the series and are patriotic as well, this design from beanwalker depicting a chibi-style America is perfect. Sure, he’s a bit of a braggart with some dumb ideas, but he always takes care of his friends.$20, buy it here.The Philadelphia StallionSylvester Stallone played two of the most over-the-top patriotic characters in America movie history – damaged soldier John Rambo and equally punch-drunk boxer Rocky Balboa. This cool minimalist design from orengito82 depicts Balboa in his iconic American flag boxer shorts, ready to square off with Ivan Drago for the honor of the country.$20, buy it here.Captain AmeripugSure, Captain America isn’t having the best time in the comics lately, what with being a sleeper agent for HYDRA and all. So why not think about better times when the shield-slinging Avenger was a paragon of truth and justice? Or at least in this design by joshlynch that depicts Cap as an adorable little pug. Hey, if the Falcon can hang around with that bird all the time there’s no reason that Captain America shouldn’t have a canine companion.$20, buy it here.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

The National Association of Pension Funds (NAPF) has rebranded as the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA).The change is designed to allow the association to broaden its reach and account for the different ways in which people save for retirement.Joanne Segars (pictured), chief executive of the PLSA, announced the change at the NAPF Annual Conference and Exhibition 2015 on 15 October.She said: “The simple age of a DB [defined benefit] pension or an annuity with a single point of retirement and a single source of income is vanishing fast.“Even if regulators and the government stopped changing the rules today, life wouldn’t stand still. Changes in working patterns, consumer demand and in technology will all affect how, and when, schemes and savers make decisions.“The new world of pensions is less certain [and] less defined. The lines are blurring between work and retirement, between pensions and lifetime savings, and between individual savings schemes; and if the world is changing, we need to change too.”The association plans to expand its remit by supporting new members through its services, including small employers, universities, local authorities, charities and master trusts. Segars added: “We want to speak for all of the workplace pensions sector, [which] means from the oldest and most established DB scheme to the smallest and newest auto-enrolled employer.”
Srinagar Colony: SBH Colony street roads are in a bad state and the surrounding residents have made umpteen complaints to Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) to lay new roads as people are facing hardships in passing through the area. Some of the residents in SBH Colony said, “For the last two weeks, we have been complaining to GHMC officials to repair the damaged road which is dotted with potholes. They did come and also took the pictures of these bad roads, but till now there is no action by them.”

Considering humanitarian ground, they permitted the Indian citizens to cross Bangladesh border for taking shelter here.The Indian flood-affected victims, who took shelter in Bangladesh, said that they would have been washed away by the floodwaters if BGB men would not help them.They are now staying at the houses, open space and on the roods in two unions of the upazilas.Habibur Rahman, chairman of Mogolhat union, said local people informed me that BGB members were obstructing the Indian citizens from intruding in Bangladesh. Later, he requested Golam Morshed, commanding officer of Lalmonirhat BGB-15 battalion, to consider the case on humanitarian ground. Later, the BGB official gave them permission to enter Bangladesh.”Some 700-800 Indian people took shelter in Bangladesh after being affected by massive floods,” said Golam Morshed.

Additionally, Optima MR450w is clinically optimized for specific anatomies, including industry leading breast imaging capabilities, can accommodate more patients with fewer scans and less coaxing for high patient throughput and satisfaction. The wider bore, says the company, does not compromise image quality. The wider, 50-cm FOV scans more anatomy and the 70-cm wide bore provides enhanced patient comfort. The larger bore is designed to allow greater flexibility for abdominal and extremity imaging, and also allows for two-station spine imaging enabled by the 50-cm FOV.The patient table holds up to 550 lbs. and has a detachable design to facilitate patient throughput. The advanced capabilities of GE’s Discovery platform have been applied in the Optima MR450w for versatility and power. Built on a fully redesigned MR platform, the Optima MR450w offers applications and capabilities that improve usability as well as providing the following features:- Condition-Specific Features: Advanced anatomy-optimized capabilities for imaging breast, spine and cardiovascular regions.- Redesigned Platform Accelerates Image Quality: An exclusive optical RF system and a new 145-cm long magnet offer uniform tissue contrast and optimized MR signal for clean, crisp images- Patient-Centered Optimization: Exclusive removable table minimizes time between scans while productivity enhancements dramatically reduce time of MR studiesFor more information: www.gehealthcare.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Two brain metastases from primary lung cancer are contrast enhanced in the brain of a 61-year-old male.
