first_imgFILE PHOTO: Paul PogbaParis, France | AFP | With Paris Saint-Germain reportedly ready to listen to offers for Neymar while Paul Pogba has publicly declared that he wants a “new challenge” away from Manchester United, the summer transfer window in Europe could see considerable upheaval at several of the continent’s biggest clubs.PSG’s ongoing quest for Champions League success has seen them bring back former sporting director Leonardo, and one of the Brazilian’s first jobs could be trying to find a buyer for his compatriot, two years after PSG signed Neymar for a world record fee of 222 million euros ($264 million).On Monday, sports daily L’Equipe reported that PSG “would not stand in the way of him departing” and added that Neymar “also sees his future away from Paris”.Agent Pini Zahavi, involved in the deal that brought the Brazilian to the French capital from Barcelona, is said to be actively trying to do a deal to take the player back to Spain.Neymar’s two years at the Parc des Princes have been marred by injury and contoversy and he is currently again sidelined by an ankle problem while also dealing with rape allegations.PSG president Nasser al-Khelaifi appeared to target Neymar when he indicated that the club’s highly-paid stars would have to shape-up or ship-out in an interview with France Football magazine.“They are not here to please themselves and if they do not agree, the doors are open. I do not want to have celebrity behaviour anymore,” he said.Perhaps Al-Khelaifi was also talking about Kylian Mbappe, PSG’s other superstar forward who last month dropped a bombshell when he hinted he might be open to a new challenge elsewhere as he picked up the Ligue 1 player of the year award.Real Madrid fans even chanted Mbappe’s name at the unveiling of Eden Hazard last week, following the Belgian’s 100 million-euro move from Chelsea.But with Real already having splashed around 300 million euros ($336 million) in the market, can they really afford a move for Neymar or Mbappe too? Meanwhile, coach Zinedine Zidane is believed to be most keen on completing a move for his compatriot Pogba.Ideally, United want to keep one of their few world class talents, even if Pogba’s performances have often fallen well short of expectations since his then world record £89 million ($112 million) signing three years ago.However, the Red Devils must now decide whether it is worth the risk to keep the Frenchman against his will or cash in to fund a rebuild. United cannot offer Pogba Champions League football next season, and much is likely to depend on what offers come their way. Madrid and Juventus have been linked, but neither are likely to come close to the reported £150 million asking price.– Raiola back in the game –Potential suitors may also be warned off by the cost of dealing with Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola.Pogba’s statement to reporters of his intention to seek pastures new on a promotional tour in Tokyo on Sunday came just days after Raiola saw a three-month ban from brokering deals lifted by FIFA.Raiola creamed off a reported £41 million from the deal that brought Pogba back to Manchester in 2016.With a season of Europa League football on the horizon and a huge rebuild needed at Old Trafford just to compete with Premier League champions Manchester City and Champions League winners Liverpool, Pogba clearly believes he can do better elsewhere.“United should not be in a position where any player, let alone an underperforming one, feels that he can call the shots. That, though, is where the past six years appear to have left them,” wrote The Times.After also being burned in big money deals for Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku, United seem keen to avoid getting in an arms race to replace Pogba should he go, even if the opportunity presents itself in what is expected to be a frantic summer of transfer activity.Antoine Griezmann has announced his intention to leave Atletico Madrid but already seems set for Barcelona.United have also played down interest in bringing Gareth Bale back to the Premier League from Madrid and seem set to be outbid by PSG to land another Raiola client in Ajax captain Matthijs de Ligt.Solskjaer has instead prioritised young and hungry recruits for United, and Welsh winger Daniel James, 21, has already been snapped up from Swansea City.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

first_imgAnd that energy will benefit the organization and its slate of candidates, Brown is convinced.Brown, 46, is a Long Branch native who was chosen late last month to succeed Vin Gopal as the party’s chairman, an unpaid position. Gopal decided to step down last month from his chairman role, which he held since 2012. Gopal plans to run as the Democrat for the state Senate seat for the 11th Legislative District, currently held by Republican Jennifer Beck.Brown initially faced competition from Spring Lake Heights resident Lorna Phillipson for the chairmanship. Phillipson, who ran unsuccessfully last year for the U.S. House of Representatives against longtime incumbent Chris Smith, dropped out of the chairmanship race after being injured in a car collision.Brown will serve out the remainder of Gopal’s term, which runs to June 2018.Brown works as the borough administrator for Roselle, in Union County, and had been active in the Monmouth County party, serving as the organization’s treasurer. He had sought elected office, having run unsuccessfully for Long Branch City Council a few years ago. “I’ve been a Democrat all my life,” he said, explaining that means, “I believe in Democratic values and the Democratic (party) platform,” on issues. The issues, he said, involve supporting equal pay for men and women, available and affordable health care, and protections against discrimination, among others.As chairman, Brown sees his job as being the “servant/ leader” of the party and following its wishes. “And it’s not easy,” he conceded, attending to the disparate interests in a large, diverse county like Monmouth. “Sometimes it’s like being (King) Solomon,” trying to keep that balance, he kidded.But one of the chairman’s major responsibilities is getting candidates elected. He said there is “a lot of enthusiasm and energy of new Democrats coming out I believe will translate into additional votes.”The Democrats could use it. Monmouth County’s current voter registration gives Democrats a slight edge with 105,000, compared to 101,000 Republicans. But what makes or breaks countywide elections here in Monmouth are the independent/unaffiliated voters, which total about 208,000. And while there are the occasional bright spots for Democrats – sometimes winning a county freeholder seat (even taking control of the five-member freeholder board for a year in 2009, the first time in more than a generation), and shoring up majorities in some municipalities, the county has been consistently Republican red. Last year’s election was no different, with the GOP incumbents handily winning county races, and Donald Trump carrying the county easily. “We’re trying to craft our message,” Brown said, with hopes of appealing to a Trump backlash. “We’re going to be the anti-Trump,” he said, charging the president “rules by fear and chaos.”To do that, “We want to put in good candidates who will govern by good government.”And that means selecting those candidates. That too, he acknowledged, is a tough process to find qualified candidates who can appeal to a broad cross-section of voters and be up to the increasingly rough-and-tumble world of a political campaign, which has become the case even for state or county campaigns.The county organization will hold a convention early this spring to formally select its slate of candidates for the Senate and Assembly races for the 11th, 12th, 13th and 30th Districts; presumably the 11th Assembly members Joann Downey and Eric Houghtaling will be running for re-election. Those Democrats defied expectations and won in 2015, ousting two veteran Republicans.The county organization has already thrown its support behind Monmouth County’s own Philip D. Murphy for the governor’s race. Murphy, Middletown, has been winning over Democratic organizations and garnering union support in his bid to win the competitive nomination race and go on to the general election in November. “And with Phil Murphy on the top of the ticket,” Brown offered assuredly, “I believe the Monmouth County Democrats will thrive.”center_img By John BurtonHAZLET – The old Chinese expression “May you live in interesting times” is certainly holding true for the national political scene and it is benefiting the county Democrats, according to the organization’s newly elected chairman, David Brown.The election of Republican President Donald J. Trump and ongoing controversies surrounding his administration and policies has, in some ways, sparked interest in the local Democratic party, with newly registered party members and some longtime ones having become galvanized and energized, believes Brown.Complacency had been “just everywhere,” in the Democratic body politic, especially since Barack Obama was elected president and then re-elected by a majority of voters, Brown said during an interview with The Two River Times conducted on Feb. 6 at the county organization’s headquarters in the Airport Plaza shopping center on Route 36.“But now people are concerned,” over the new administration’s actions, he continued. “That complacency now is being evaporated by enthusiasm.”Matthew Anderson, the county organization’s executive director, followed up by noting organization meetings – usually marked by pretty low attendance, with just the stalwart of committee members on hand – have seen surprisingly large turnouts. So much so, that Anderson said they’re looking for larger venues to accommodate the audience.“Normally we struggle,” to round up volunteers and organization members, Brown acknowledged. “But in this environment Democrats are coming out in droves.”last_img read more

first_imgLPRC and Club Breweries have registered their appeals to the First Instant Board Appeal Committee, headed by vice president Musa Shannon, against their de-registration as members of the Liberia Football Association (LFA).Secretary General Alphonso Armah told newsmen yesterday that hearings are expected this weekend at the football house on Benson Street.Mr. Armah further announced that 2nd division outfits Small Town and Mighty Blue Dragon have also sought appeal.Though, Armah failed to state the appeal’s fees, reports say each team paid L$10,000.It may be recalled last week, Ansu Dorley, chairman of the First Instant Board said the clubs failed to meet up with the minimal requirement of a practice pitch, Article of Incorporation (AOI) amongst others, thus disqualifying them from the 2014/2015 LFA League.Mr. Dorley named the teams for the 1st division as BYC, FC Fassell, LISCR, Wantaga, Nimba United, Jubilee FC, NPA Anchors and Aries. IE and Keitrace were given provisional clearances up to May 31.He also named Mighty Blue Angels, Barrolle, ELWA United, Gardnersville FC, BYC II and Holder FC to participate in the 2nd division league.Georgia Conquerors and Sesay FC were given provisional clearances, while Small Town, Ganta and Might Dragon were denied participation.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgShe was born and bred in Kakaka where she received her early schooling at St. Christopher Catholic School, then traveled to Bolahun Mission in Lofa County, where she completed high school. After a few years at Cuttington University College (now University), she traveled to the then Soviet Union to study Medicine, and later entered Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, for graduate studies.Although away for over three decades, 25 of which she spent in the practice of Medicine, Dr. Christiana Hena never forgot her native Kakata. She frequently returned home to see her father, Surveyor Dominic K. Hena of the Lands, Mines and Energy Ministry, and the rest of the family. She also never forgot what she and other Kakata residents went through as children trying to survive in the absence of a decent medical facility in town. Mr. C.H. Rennie helped establish Kakata’s first modern medical facility, which is named for him.But Dr. Christiana knew that Kakata, a city of over 100,000, with all its surrounding villages and the gateway to Liberia’s vast interior, needed more than one medical center. So she contacted some of the friends she had made as a student and medical practitioner in America and, thank God, they embraced her vision and gave her the financial support she needed to realize it.The result is the Waterfield Primary Health Care Center, Kakata’s latest modern health and medical facility, which she gratefully named in honor of her benefactors, Jim and Sandy Waterfield. They live in a little town called Canadian Texas in Texas, America’s largest state.The Waterfields gave this young Liberian medical doctor, whom they really did not know – nor had they ever heard of Kakata – US$200,000 to fulfill her dream of building a modern health facility in her beloved Kakata.We all know where Kakata is. As earlier indicated, it is the gateway to Liberia’s interior. One cannot get to Bong, Lofa or Nimba counties, three of the nation’s most populous counties, and its breadbasket, without passing through Kakata. Most travelers bound for Liberia’s southeastern counties—Grand Gedeh, River Gee, Grand Kru and Maryland—pass through Kakata to reach their destinations. But Kakata is noted for something else. Greater Kakata lies smack in the middle of Liberia’s rubber belt; and is the beleaguered domain of so many wealthy rubber plantations. These farms made their owners and children very rich—so rich that most of the owners gave their children expensive foreign education, notably in England, America, Switzerland and other parts of Europe. These wealthy Liberians, who made all their money right there in Kakata, gave back to the beleaguered (longsuffering, struggling) town little or nothing.All of these rubber planters knew that the Booker Washington Institute (BWI) was there—they passed it every weekend en route to their plantations. But how many of them ever gave a single scholarship to that first Liberian vocational and technical school? We know of none. They spent their precious dollars on foreign academic institutions.Yet it was a not so wealthy American lady, Olivia Phelps Stokes, who gave the first US$100,000 to found BWI. And for decades the school was further developed and sustained by the Phelps Stokes Fund.Nor did these rich Liberians realize that the great universities to which they loved to send their children were built and funded by private money—yes, Americans who have made money GAVE BACK to their schools, colleges and universities that not only educated them, but those in their states and elsewhere.You are talking about Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Princeton, Cornell, Dartmouth, Brown, Stanford, etc. Yes, just like Jim and Sandy Waterfield, Americans who have made money always GIVE BACK, in thanksgiving to God and to the schools, colleges and universities that educated them, their children and their posterity (future generations). But the words GIVE BACK are, unfortunately, missing from the Liberian vocabulary.In the spirit of GIVING BACK to the country—Liberia—that made him, an immigrant from the Caribbean, rich, Mr. Rennie did two things more for Liberia. He sent for his nephews in his native Grenada and had them trained as medical doctors and other professionals, who served Liberia for many years. Drs. Thomas, Mark and Cox were among them. So was the once Ace broadcaster Ashley Rennie. C.H. Rennie also raised many boys from up country and bought each of them land in their home areas, putting them on their feet before he died. Blyden Rennie of Zeanzue, Bong County is one of them.We pray that what Dr. Christiana Hena has done—to remind Liberians of what they already know—that Americans who have made money GIVE BACK—will inspire other Liberians to do the same. Alas! Dr. Hena lamented to the Daily Observer that she has received not a cent whatsoever from the Ministry of Health (MOH). Why, we ask Drs. Walter Gwenigale and Bernice Dahn, were they unable to provide any assistance to this initiative that is clearly going to help them accomplish the “resilient health care system” the very goal they have set for the nation?Like Dr. Hena herself, we acknowledge the high degree of interest Margibi Senator Oscar Cooper has placed in the hospital project from its inception as a proactive son and representative of Margibi who we hope will go on to garner more support for the hospital.

first_imgThe school caretaker who raped and molested four pupils at a Donegal school has been named as Michael Ferry form Goath Dobhair.The 55 year old pervert was officially named at the Central Criminal Court a short time ago.Ferry sexually abused a child at a Donegal school and then returned to the job where he went on to molest and rape four more boys at summer school. He pleaded guilty at the Central Criminal Court to 38 sample charges which included oral and anal rapes, sex assaults, one indecent assault and two charges of production of child pornography on dates between 1990 and 2005.Ferry sexually abused the boys, who were aged between 10 and 17 years, on an almost weekly basis.The court heard he made them watch pornography and groomed then by supplying them with alcohol, cigarettes and money.The accused had earlier been convicted in a District Court in Donegal for two incidents of indecent assault at the same school in 1985 and 1986, but he was not identified in the local papers at the time and he returned to work in the same school, where the abuse continued.The court heard each of his victims, now aged between 24 and 30, had turned to alcohol, drug and solvent abuse as a means of escape and many of them stated that they had tried to take their own lives.Ferry received fourteen years in prison was arrested in June last year after one of the men reported the abuse to his GP.In a statement outside the court, one of Ferry’s victims asked why the pervert was not stopped after he was brought before the courts in 2002.Derek Mulligan, who waived his anonymity, also asked why his employers still kept him in his job.Mr Mulligan said he believed someone so sick and perverted never changed.He also urged other victims of sexual abuse to come forward and said it was not until he came forward that his nightmare ended.Mr Mulligan described Ferry as a demon who had shown no remorse. His only remorse was for being caught, he said.The school authorities have promised to issue a statement.SCHOOL CARETAKER JAILED FOR SEX CRIMES IS NAMED was last modified: July 18th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgWith the credibility of the game in question, fans rightly disgusted and Congress threatening action, Major League Baseball is finally getting serious about players’ steroid use. On Tuesday, the players’ union conceded to Commissioner Bud Selig’s demands for a tough steroids policy. Under the new plan, testing will be increased, and a first offense will lead to a 50-game suspension. Two offenses equals a 100-game suspension, and with a third strike, the player is out of the game for life. That means fans can now watch baseball knowing that the athleticism on display is real, not juiced. And parents no longer need to worry that their kids will think the way to become a big league player is to abuse their bodies with drugs. Baseball is cleaning up its act, and for that we can all cheer. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

first_imgEthiopia launched the country’s firstscience academy in the capital city ofAddis Ababa.(Image: wvumc.wordpress.com)Nosimilo RamelaEthiopia launched its first science academy in the capital city of Addis Ababa on 10 April with the aim of developing scientific research and education in the country.The Ethiopia Academy of Science (EAS) says its objectives are to promote the advancement of basic and applied sciences, enhance innovative technologies, support and recognise excellence in scientific research performed by Ethiopian scientists, and promote contacts among Ethiopian scientists and those throughout the world.Academy president Demissie Habte said the EAS also plans to advise government on both natural and social science issues. “Growing political interest in science in Ethiopia has helped get the academy off the ground. There is a much better appreciation in the government for the role science can play in development,” he said.Habte said scientists first considered the idea for an Ethiopian academy in the early 1960s, but political instability in the country during the 1970s and 1980s saw the plans being put on hold. Researchers at Addis Ababa University, with the support of the UK Royal Society, revived the idea a few years ago.The Royal Society is one of oldest and most respected scientific academies in the world and has been working closely with Ethiopian scientists for the past 18 months in setting up the EAS. It said it is confident the academy has the potential to be a force for positive change and for practising evidence-based policy in Ethiopia.Roman Tewolde of the EAS said the academy will work to promote the country’s science agenda, which includes the use of new farming and industrial technology. “The academy will also give researchers financial and technical support, and publish journals and books for scientists and the public,” he said.Tewolde added that the EAS will be “an independent, merit-based institution committed to assisting the national development agenda, promoting excellence in science and arts, and advancing the nation’s natural and cultural heritage”.Until now “there has not been a national organisation to speak with authority on behalf of all learned bodies in Ethiopia”, he said.Academy structureHabte said the academy will be founded with 50 fellows from both the natural and social sciences. “New fellows will be elected by the members each year, although the small number of senior academics in the country will limit the membership at first.”He added that the academy will support policy-makers by preparing position papers on the challenges facing Ethiopia, such as rapid population growth and water security.Scientists have welcomed the launch of the academy. “This is great for our country – it’s something that will bring a wealth of knowledge to our people [and] this continent as a whole,” said Professor Teketel Yohnnes from Addis Ababa University. “Young people who are keen on a career in science can [now] look forward to experiencing and practising their work in their own country.”last_img read more

first_imgBuilders who install rigid foam insulation need to know what type of fasteners to use for a variety of substrates. One challenging situation involves installing rigid foam or furring strips over concrete, as might happen when rigid foam is installed on the interior of a basement wall. But even builders who are familiar with fastening methods for concrete might wonder if the same techniques are appropriate for brick walls.In this article, I’ll try to provide advice on the best mechanical fasteners for concrete, brick, or CMU (concrete masonry unit) walls. I’ll consider a variety of scenarios, including the attachment of furring strips directly to the wall, the attachment of rigid foam without furring strips, and the attachment of furring strips through a layer of rigid foam. I’ll also look at the best fasteners for OSB or plywood subfloor panels when the subfloor is installed over continuous rigid foam above a basement slab. Types of fasteners There are two basic types of fasteners for concrete and masonry: Drilling a hole in concrete If you’re using a fastener that requires a pre-drilled hole, you’ll need a hammer drill with a depth stop. (Although it’s possible to drill holes in concrete with an ordinary electric drill, the work is far faster with a hammer drill.) Use a high-quality bit designed for concrete.In most cases, the hole needs to be 1/2 inch deeper than the fastener will penetrate. Once the hole has been drilled, use a turkey baster or a baby’s ear syringe (available at drug stores) to blow the dust out of the hole. It’s also possible to vacuum out the dust or to blow it out with an air compressor.If you’re fastening furring strips… Start Free Trial Already a member?

first_imgHow much power do you need on set? Find out how to calculate it so you never run out.If you’re like me when heading to set, you’ll throw pretty much every battery you have in your camera case. But how much are you going to need, and wouldn’t it be great to know how much your camera consumes before you start?Knowing how much power your camera (and all its accessories) consume is as important as knowing how much it weighs. It would be crazy to put your rig on a crane or a gimbal without knowing if you’ll overload it. By the same token, it’s a little crazy to arrive on set hoping that you have enough power instead of simply knowing that you do.CalculateSo, how do you go about doing this? You add up the power consumption of all the devices you’ll use and work out how much power you’ll need. If you’re running the whole system from one power source, like the V-Mount battery system that I use, it’s a simple issue. You could do all this with individual batteries and devices, as well.Cine batteries are rated in watt hours. A 98 watt hour battery will run a 98 W device for one hour. If you’re curious about why it’s 98 and not 100, it’s because the American FAA states that you can only pack batteries of less than 100 watt hours in luggage, so most manufacturers makes them a little less than that for easier travel.Let’s start with the camera body: go to the specs page of the camera, and look at its power page. (I use B&H because they do a good job of finding and posting specs on their product pages.) For the Canon C200, I had to find it on the Canon Europe website. You can just google power consumption and the name of your device.Image via Canon.I see that the C200 is 18w in 4K Raw mode. This doesn’t tell me if it’s recording or standing by, but it’s safe to guess this is the maximum draw. Below, it tells me that the BP30 battery that comes with the camera, which is a 31 watt hour battery, will run the camera for approximately 130 minutes, or just over two hours. So, 31 divided by 18 is 1.7, making that a 130-minute estimate — probably assuming that you’re not going to be recording with the camera the whole time.So, if I power the camera with the 150 WH battery, I’m going to be able to record for eight hours, but that’s before we’ve added any other accessories.Next, we’ll add the TVLogic F7h, which has a power draw of 19 watts. Yes, that’s more than the camera and probably has an at-max brightness of 3600 nits (which I only use in bright sun outside). But, if we calculate the max draw of all these devices, we’ll have a margin of safety.Image via TVLogic.Next, the Teradek bolt with a much more modest 7 watts. If I added a second monitor, or a wireless follow focus motor, I’d add that in as well.Adding 18, 19, and 7 gives us 44, so I’m going to need 44 Watt hours to run the camera for a single hour. Again, that’s at full capacity so you’ll get more run time than this, but it gives you a margin of safety.For a 10 hour shoot, I’m going to need 440 watt hours. I add up the capacity of my batteries and know if I have enough to get through the day.If I’m shooting with two cameras, I’m going to need twice that, and so on. If I have four cameras, and lights that take 100 watts, you can quickly see how you get to a 100 battery set up.Cover image via Janaka Dharmasena.Looking for more filmmaking tips and tricks?

first_imgAfter displaying exemplary professionalism on the field against Nepal, the players of the Indian national football team believe that they need to come out with similar performances in the upcoming matches if the momentum has to be sustained.Basking in glory is something which the present crop of players is not willing to wear it on their sleeve.Sandesh Jhinhgan, for example, who is now making it a habit of scoring in almost every match grins when reminded about it.”I am happy to help the Team,” he utters, moments after India won 2-0 against Nepal, sweat trickling down his forehead. “The clean sheet matters the most. We needed this victory because this gives us a good momentum for the match against Kyrgyz Republic. We need to build on it,” he adds, even as the loud cheers from the stands seem to overlay his voice.Jeje Lalpekhlua whose sublime finish wrapped up proceedings for India after Jhingan’s goal insisted that the Team needs to “stay calm.””It was humid and a very difficult game. We fought hard and stayed together. We did not get any goal in the first half but stayed calm and patient. We kept working in the second half and it paid dividends,” he states.Seven consecutive victories in International Football is no achievement. But Robin Singh isn’t much willing to read much into it.”There is only way, and that is to move forward from here. The match against Nepal was a winning step and it is time to focus on the match against Kyrgyz Republic,” he maintains.advertisementThe boys had a morning recovery session at the pool and will resume practice again from Thursday.”The victory against Nepal makes us more confident. We need to carry this confidence into our next match and need to fill in the areas which the Coach will instruct us to,” Pritam Kotal, who floated innumerable crosses from the flanks against Nepal, joins in.Midfield General Eugeneson Lyngdoh feels that the Team played a “good game” against Nepal. But the very next moment, he adds: “This was a much needed victory. We need to capitalise on the win. It will stir up the confidence of the players for sure.”Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, who has now an all-win record in the three matches in which he has Captained India credits the coaching staff, the Coach and all his teammates for all the success.”Football is not just about one man. It’s a Team playing together, and it’s not just the Team who is taking the field. I am proud to be a part of the Team,” he echoes, and repeats the next moment: “Really proud,” he said.India will take on the Kyrgyz Republic in the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2019 qualifying match which is slated to be played in Bengaluru on June 13.last_img read more
