Video Tutorial: Working With Photoshop Files in Premiere Pro

first_imgAs with all Adobe products, Premiere and Photoshop work well together. Learn how to easily work with layered Photoshop files in Premiere Pro to create a simple animation.In this video tutorial we’ll go over the various ways to import a Photoshop file into Premiere Pro and take a look at some of the creative ways to use this feature by creating a simple animation. Let’s get started. Animate the LayersAgain, you’ll see here that I have Photoshopped this image and isolated each element into layers. I have the moon, the earth, and a background layer.Since we’ve imported the PSD as a Sequence, each layer is on its own track. Now with some basic keyframing, I can make a simple animation. Just by keyframing the Y position of the earth and moon layers, I can suddenly bring this two-dimensional image to life. I can go a step further and add a blur effect to the moon layer to give the image some perceived depth.I hope you enjoyed the tutorial, and be sure to check out PremiumBeat for high quality royalty free music and sound effects for all of your media and video projects. Import a Layered Photoshop FileWhen you import a layered Photoshop file into Premiere Pro, you have a few different options as to how Premiere can handle the file. So I have a file here that we’ll be working with. This is the famous Earthrise photograph from one of NASA’s Apollo missions. I’ve cut out the various parts of this photo into three different layers, including the earth, the moon, and a black background. Let’s see what happens when we bring this Photoshop file into Adobe Premiere.Image via of NASAWhen we import the PSD file, the Import Layered File dialog box is displayed. In the Import As section, you have four options:Merge All Layers: If you select Merge All Layers, the PSD file will be imported with all of the layers merged together as a single flattened image.Merged Layers: This setting allows you to pick which layers you would like to merge together into one single flattened image.Individual Layers: Importing as individual layers will allow you to select which layers you want to import, and then import all clips into a single bin.Sequence: This option is similar to importing as individual layers, but it will also create a sequence and put all of your layers on their own track.last_img read more

Art: Mapping The Dislocation

first_imgShe left the house in Aligarh where she was born when she was 21 in pre-partition India, and after that she saw it only in her dreams. Life took this immigrant to the United Kingdom, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. As artist and print maker, Zarina has incorporated all these journeys into her work: monochromatic prints, cast paper and metal sculpture assume the form of ontological maps through which she traces the themes of memory, nostalgia, dislocation, and family. Recently she completed 30 years of work and Bose Pacia Gallery presented Counting, a solo exhibition of her work over the years. “Using delicate geometric forms and fluid composition, Zarina reduces complex ideas to their essential and evocative element,” says Arani Bose. In Letters from Home, a series of Urdu letters from her sister, are encased in the outline of a house, or a floor plan of her childhood home. These are the letters she received from her sister at difficult times, the loss of her parents and a sister..In the installation Rani’s Garden, a series of bronze and cast paper sculpture become monuments to her home and family in Aligarh. ” I respond to my life, as to how I came here and why I came here – and I question that,” she says. “I respond to the world I’m living in, the riots, destroyed cities, the borders that I have crossed.” Her sense of dislocation touches a cord in other immigrant lives, interrupted and re-started in new towns and cities.. Her work can be seen in collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and at the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris.She does go back to India for short visits, but has never lived there since she left the house she was born in. The house still stands but now it belongs to strangers. Has she ever revisited it? “I did go there in 2000, but it was a very strange experience,” she says. “I really did not know how to respond. I was not upset or crying but it left me cold. It was the only house I ever lived in my imagination. It had a life, but without the people it’s just walls.” Related Itemslast_img read more

Culinary Journey From India To South Africa

first_imgAn Invitation to Indian Cooking was Madhur Jaffrey’s first cookbook for the American market, published in 1973. It is still regarded as a classic and this year the book was inducted into the James Beard Foundation Cookbook Hall of Fame.Yet there was a time when Jaffrey, actress and culinary teacher extraordinaire, didn’t know a thing about cooking. As a young actress in London many years ago, she was homesick for her mother’s home food: “I started writing letters to my mother, mentioning the dishes which I missed – a gobhi dish, a meat dish, khare masala ka ghosth. I didn’t know how to make tea, I didn’t know how to make rice. Help, help, help.” Back came letters with the recipes and Jaffrey recalls, “I made one of them – hing jeere ke alu again and again. I couldn’t make rotis in those days so I ate it with Jewish pumpernickel bread, which I could get in my neighborhood.”Now of course she has 15 cookbooks to her credit, including A Taste of the Far East, Madhur Jaffrey’s World Vegetarian and From Curries to Kebabs: Recipes from the Indian Spice Trail.In From Curries to Kebabs she explores the evolution of curry in several countries from India to Sri Lanka to Thailand to South Africa. It’s a fascinating journey, showing the impact of Indian food on diverse cultures. The book offers up meat dishes to vegetables, bread to side dishes, and dollops of history and intriguing anecdotes.Who would have known that Nelson Mandela loves Indian food and that he’s even added Indian spices to his Xhosa umngqusbo or stew? During Jaffrey’s visit to Johannesburg, she met him at a luncheon and recalls: “For me, it was the best of days. He sat at the head of the table and I sat to his right for the entire three-hour lunch. I have to say that Nelson Mandela certainly tucked into his biryani and did not do so baldy with the Xhosa-Indian umngqusbo either.”NATAL RED KIDNEY BEAN CURRYServes 61 1/2 cups dried red kidney beans3 tablespoons vegetable oil3 whole dried hot red chilies1/2 teaspoon whole brown mustard seeds1/2 teaspoon whole cumin seedsA generous pinch of ground asafetida10 to 15 fresh curry leaves, if available3 medium tomatoes (about 1 pound),  grated on the coarsest part of the grater1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric1 teaspoon ground coriander1 teaspoon ground cumin1 to 2 fresh hot green chilies, finely chopped1 clove garlic, crushed1 teaspoon peeled fresh ginger, grated to a plup1 teaspoon sugar1 1/2 teaspoons saltMethod: Cover the beans generously in water and leave to soak overnight.

First International Ayush Conference on Indian Medicine to be Held in Dubai

first_imgThe UAE is set to host the first international conference and exhibition on traditional Indian systems of medicine, such as ayurveda, yoga, naturopathy, Unani, siddha and homeopathy (AYUSH) next month. The event is scheduled to be held from Nov. 9 to 11 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.The initiative is a bid by Indian authorities for promoting wider acceptance of ancient Indian healing practices for lifestyle-related disorders. The theme has been named “Lifestyle diseases- prevention and management through Ayush”.About 1,200 delegates from over 20 countries, and 30,000 participants, including health policymakers, Ayush entrepreneurs and researchers as well as industry professionals, are expected to attend the event. The Indian government has been giving thrust to traditional forms of healing and treatment after the formation of the Ayush Ministry in November 2014.The program was announced by Vipul, the Consul General of India in Dubai, while Navdeep Singh Suri, the Indian Ambassador to the UAE, and Dr BR Shetty, the chairman of the organizing committee of Ayush, along with other committee members attended the conference.The event aims to ensure better education and awareness about these alternative forms of healing, Vipul said. Suri concurred in his statement: “Traditional knowledge is our heritage and should be shared with mankind and that is the idea of some of such initiatives the government of India is taking. Let us look beyond the narrow confines of western medicine and embrace the much more holistic idea of healing that Ayush represents.”The conference, he added, will shed light on how to manage lifestyle-related ailments with Ayush therapies that the scientific community is researching.Dr VL Shyam, the general secretary of the organizing committee, pointed out issues of direct billing for medical insurance coverage. At the moment, he said, most insurance companies cover traditional and alternative medicines on a reimbursement level based on the slabs of the policies. “The Ayush systems are approved as medical systems under ‘traditional complementary and alternative medicine’ by the Ministry of Health in UAE since 2003. This event is part of the efforts to make Ayush systems part of mainstream medicine and not just a traditional, complementary and alternative medicine but as a future medicine.”The conference is being held with the support of Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, the Minister of Culture and Knowledge Development in the UAE.“I am honored to be the chairman of the organizing committee, mainly, because it was the late Sheikh Zayed’s dream to introduce the idea of herbal medicine in the UAE. There is also a company in his name – Zayed Herbal Centre. I am happy that one of their doctors will also be attending the conference,” Suri said.The conference is also expected to include a free medical camp for the public at the venue. According to the organizers, Dubai was chosen to host the conference because of its connectivity and the receptive nature of the city.The consulate will also publicize the facility of free ayurvedic and homeopathic consultation service available at the mission during the conference.Media launch of our International #AYUSH Conference with a special focus on Lifestyle Diseases.

India Club in London Fights to Preserve Legacy

first_imgThe India Club, which was a hub for Indian nationals in London during the Independence movement in the 1930s and ’40s, now fights for survival following plans for the building’s demolition from the inside. The local Westminster Council has plans to convert the interiors of the building, which is located near India House, the country’s High Commission in London, into a modern hotel establishment.“This is a tragedy,” Yadgar Marker, the director of Golds and Hotels Limited trading as The Strand Continental Hotel, which houses the India Club, told PTI. “We have done everything possible to retain the ethos and spirit of the place. We intend to build as much community support as possible to preserve this piece of Indian history.”Marker, a Parsee-origin man, has been running the establishment with his wife, Freny, since they rescued it from destruction in 1997. He is now campaigning to save it from getting shut down, and is trying to receive listed status from English Heritage for it to be called a historically important landmark.The campaign has also received support from high-profile Indians like Congress MP Shashi Tharoor. The Club was co-founded by his late father and journalist Chandran Tharoor, and VK Krishna Menon, Independent India’s first High Commissioner to the United Kingdom.“The India Club has, for many years, offered a home away from home for Indians,” Tharoor wrote in his endorsement letter. “It is iconic, as it has continued to preserve its old-world charm. Given the importance of The India Club to Londoners and Indians alike, I am of the belief that it should be bestowed with ‘heritage status’.”The club, located on the first floor of the Strand Continental, was originally a meeting place for civil servants working for the High Commission of India. It was also a place for get-togethers of Indian journalists and intellectuals since 1946, and functioned as an Indian restaurant as well. Over the years, leaders like former Indian Prime Ministers Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi frequented the place.It is still marked by its simple decor and specializes in South Indian cuisine.“We have deliberately held on to the Formica tables and other dated aspects, including old photographs and portraits, to retain the feel of 1940s India when nationalists would gather around cups of tea to deliberate on Indian independence,” Marker told PTI. “The feedback on the food and the architecture of this little India is always heart-warming.”The club is recalled for its connection with the India League, which was founded by Annie Besant in 1921 and revived by Krishna Menon in 1929. The organization, which campaigned for the country’s Independence, held most of its meetings at the India Club on the Strand, according to William Gould, professor of India History at the University of Leeds, the news agency reported.“The India Club, especially because of its connections to the India League, is one of the most important heritage sites for South Asians in the U.K., and not just in London,” Gould said. “It was one of the key sites for the discussion and planning of how British public opinion could be changed to favor Indian independence, and after 1947, it was the main lobbying organization in the UK around Indian political affairs.” Related ItemsIndia Club demolitionIndia Club UKIndia Club Westminster CouncilLittle IndiaShashi Tharoor India ClubWilliam Gould India ClubYadgar Marker Freny Londonlast_img read more

Indian-Origin MP in UK Calls for Treating Temple Burglaries as Hate Crimes

first_imgAn Indian-origin British MP has asked the British government if the recent burglaries in two Hindu temples in London can be treated as hate crimes. He also appealed that it should not be ignored by the police.Virendra Sharma, Labor MP from Ealing Southall, raised the question in the House of Commons on Nov.13 regarding actions against the culprits of recent break-ins at two Swami Narayan Temples in London.Shree Kutch Satsang Swami Narayan Temple in Kenton and Shree Swami Narayan Temple in Willesden recently suffered break-ins during the early hours of Nov.9 and Nov.13 respectively. Three Krishna idols were stolen from Willesden temple.“Within the last week, two separate Hindu temples, the Shree Swaminarayan temple in Willesden and the Shree Kutch Satsang Swaminarayan temple in Kenton, have been broken into and religious icons have been stolen,” Sharma said while giving a background to his question, which is available on UK parliament’s website.“Can the Minister confirm that these will be treated as hate crimes and not just ignored by the police, given that they targeted people of one faith?” he asked.Condemning these incidents, David Gauke, Secretary of State for Justice said, “Those specific cases will be a matter for the police and for the Crown Prosecution Service.”Gauke further said, “If the activity of this sort is targeted on the basis of religious belief, that is completely unacceptable and I am sure that the whole House is united in condemning it.”While speaking to Business Line newspaper, Sharma said that he wants police to keep the possibility open to term these incidents as a hate crime and not as simple burglary.While talking to the newspaper, he not only pointed toward the increasing hate crimes against Muslims but also mentioned the vandalism of WWI statue of a Sikh soldier last week.The publication quoted Sharma as saying, “Given the way society is developing, given the way some sections of society are going around and spreading hatred and intolerance, I strongly feel that people should keep open that possibility.” Related Itemslast_img read more

Commonwealth Games stadiums present a pathetic picture

first_imgThe sprawling stadia in the Capital were the centre of focus when they came up for the Commonwealth Games (CWG), the biggest multi-discipline event that the country has ever hosted. But little under two years after the event, some of the venues cut a sorry picture with most of the stadia in shambles and out of reach for the locals.With billions of rupees spent on refurbishing the venues, the only legacy that Delhiites seem to have received is the huge financial burden. Most of the venues are lying useless and despite the high demand of sports enthusiasts, the authorities have preferred to keep sports lovers out of these stadia.The state-of-the-art velodrome at the Indira Gandhi stadium, for example, built at a mind boggling cost of Rs 150 crore is one of the world’s best indoor cycling facilities. But the velodrome was opened for the national cyclists only last month, before which the venue wasn’t accessible to anyone. The national cycling team had been training in Patiala on cemented tracks till then. With the velodrome being out of their reach, it’s no wonder that none of the Indian cyclists made it to the London Olympics.In 2011, International Cycling Union (UCI) president Pat McQuaid had said that it was a matter of ‘shame’ that not even one event was being held at the cutting-edge velodrome.A similar facility that was unveiled at theLondon Olympics, is being equipped with cycling workshops and will be transferred to a local body which will use the venue for sporting events of different kinds.advertisementThe same Indira Gandhi Stadium also hosted the wrestling events during the CWG and ever since Sushil Kumar’s feat at the Beijing Olympics, the sport has attracted many youngsters. Despite the sprawling facility at the Indira Gandhi Stadium, the plight of Indian wrestlers is such that six of them have to share one room under the Chattrasal Stadium, with just one practice hall and limited training equipment. Likewise, the Thyagraj Stadium, which was built at a cost of Rs 300 crore, does not have any equipment for the 100 odd athletes who visit the stadium every day.After CWG’s closing ceremony, the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, renovated at a cost of Rs 961 crore, has hosted only two major sporting events – the SAFF championship and another football match between Bayern Munich and India.The Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium already shows signs of wear and tear.The Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium is scheduled to host the Nehru Cup from Wednesday and the state of the venue is far from what is required to stage an international event. With glaring bald patches in the practice pitch, even Indian football coach Wim Koevermans refused to hold the national camp at the venue.No effort has been made to maintain the complex, which has resulted in the overgrowth of grass in the area that held the lawn bowls event during the Games.Delhi had the success stories of Manchester 2002 and Melbourne 2006 to emulate from, where big budgets were allocated to training and the venues prepared for the events were sold to private clubs.Right after the 2002 CWG held at Manchester, the stadium was handed over to the Manchester City Football Club from which the authorities got millions annually as revenues, which were in turn put back into promoting sport.For the next CWG to be held in Glasgow in 2014, the organisers have held the construction of social legacy to be their top priority.The future of the infrastructure in the national capital and the future of the country’s next generation of athletes is still uncertain.Other countries that have hosted such events have realised the relevance of ‘the legacy’ that locals look up to inheriting as hosts. Whether Delhiites can claim theirs is a question that still remains unanswered.– With inputs from sports desk.Chhatrasal Stadium: Wrestlers packed off below a staircaseAt Chhatrasal Stadium, wrestlers have to camp in a room tucked away under the main staircase.While the Commonwealth Games created world class infrastructure for sports that have barely any following or success to speak of, sports like wrestling that have been generating medals have been ironically ignored by the authorities. Renovated for CWG at a cost of Rs 70 crore, Chhatrasal stadium is the hub of Indian wrestling and has produced Olympians like Sushil Kumar and Yogeshwar Dutt, but it does not even meet the basic requirements of its athletes.Till very recently, Chhatrasal stadium was home to around 50 other wrestlers, many of whom are national and international level sportspersons. Instead of quarters to live in, the stadium provides them with a room which has been created below the stairs of the main ground. At least five to six athletes camp in each room, and without beds, they sit, sleep and eat on the floor itself.advertisementBut to the wrestlers, most of whom have come from the Capital’s outskirts or from rural Haryana, it is not sleeping on the floors that pains them but having to suffer due to a paucity of equipment and practice halls is what affects them the most. For the athletes, there is only one practice hall and limited weight training equipment that they can train with.”There was a shortage of weight training equipment anyway and now with Sushil and Yogeshwar’s victories, more people are bound to come in. Unless we’re given another hall, apart from the equipment, practicing here will become quite difficult,” said an athlete on conditions of anonymity.Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium: Velodrome languishes without cyclistsThe state-of-art velodrome at the IGI Stadium is not built to stand Delhi’s weather conditions.Last year, the International Cycling Union (UCI) president, Pat McQuaid, said that it was a matter of ‘shame’ that the state-of-the-art indoor facility of velodrome was not being used. The Velodrome, built at a cost of Rs 150 crore, has arguably the best indoor cycling track in the country, the only facility of its kind to offer a timbre track instead of a cemented one.However it has barely been opened to the public after the Commonwealth Games.With no enthusiasts coming forward to use the venue, the wooden track has been permanently covered with a plastic sheet and doors to the facility locked. In Delhi’s extreme hot and humid weather the costly wooden track is expected to deteriorate rapidly in absence of any air conditioning or maintenance. According to an official the daily expense of maintaining the venue comes close to Rs lakh. With no money coming to the maintenance staff they claim their hands are tied as well.The world class venue, with a seating capacity of 3800, modern sports lighting and acoustics system, was expected to inspire the next generation of cyclists in the country. But dropping out of the view of public and the authorities the world-class venue is now screaming for attention.last_img read more

He has confessed to illegal entry and claimed he simply wished to head further for a job as a driver in Malaysia and that he is not involved in the bomb plot,” the Bangkok Post quoted Chuchart as saying.

Six Nations 2019 verdict: Guardian writers on their highs and lows

first_imgThe same again in many ways, as intense, entertaining, and unpredictable as this tournament always is and yet very different in others, with new coaches in charge of Wales and Ireland, as well, you guess, as a couple of others, and, I’d wager, a world champion team among the contenders. ABCompletely different without Warren Gatland (we think), Joe Schmidt, maybe Eddie Jones and someone new – possibly with a clue as to what they are doing – at the helm of France. It feels like this year’s competition was the end of an era, roll on the next one. After the small matter of the World Cup, that is. GMWales’s first as world champions, Warren Gatland’s first as England coach, Eddie Jones’s first in charge of France. Ryan Wilson and Billy Vunipola to kick the CVC Calcutta Cup down Prince’s Street and World Rugby the can of growing the global game. MAA leap year into the unknown. There will be no Warren Gatland, who says he will resist any overture from England, or Joe Schmidt. And, perhaps, no Eddie Jones, Jacques Brunel and Conor O’Shea. PR Six Nations Maro Itoje celebrates during England’s win over Ireland in Dublin on the opening weekend. Photograph: Matthew Impey/Rex/Shutterstock Alun Wyn Jones the pain-defying warrior needed for more Wales battles Six Nations’ team of the tournament: Wales and England dominate best XV Twitter Six Nations 2019 Share on Facebook Facebook Share via Email Share on LinkedIn Read more Share on Twitter Alun Wyn Jones. Wales’s Six Nations was defined by the steady nerves, strength of character and savvy game-management they showed in winning from behind against France and England, fighting off Scotland and bossing Ireland when the grand slam was on the line. Jones epitomises, and inspires, all three qualities. They could not have done it without him. Andy BullAlun Wyn Jones. Tempting to say Jonathan Davies, in part due to tipping him at the beginning, but the debate starts and ends with Wales’s colossal captain. Leadership, presence, inspiration – Jones has the lot. He has 134 caps now and it is staggering to think you could count the number of bad performances on one hand. Gerard MeagherLiam Williams. Wales are twice the team when he plays at full-back. He rules the air and defends like no other. Only Stuart Hogg compares in attack. Why pick anyone else? Alun Wyn Jones, Josh Navidi and Hadleigh Parkes influential too. Tom Curry was England’s best player. Michael AylwinAlun Wyn Jones. On behalf of his Wales team, the supreme leader. Paul ReesMatch of the tournamentImpossible to beat Cardiff for atmosphere or Twickenham for thrills on a dramatic final weekend but England’s opening weekend demolition of Ireland in Dublin should not be entirely forgotten. If they ever want to remind themselves they can perform under pressure, this is the game to re-watch. RKEngland’s win in Dublin was the best performance they’ve turned in since Eddie Jones took over, and if they could reach that peak every week they’d be the best team in the world. But the most enjoyable match I saw was Wales against Scotland. I’m still not really sure how the Welsh won it. ABEngland 38 Scotland 38. Bonkers. Having to file copy on the final whistle put years on most journalists in attendance but it was worth it to witness one of the most remarkable Test matches in recent memory. England’s victory over Ireland wins in terms of best performance, Wales’s triumph over England for atmosphere, but the finale was something else entirely. GMIreland v England. England v Scotland was fairly remarkable, but it didn’t quite feel real. Dublin in round one did. Finest England performance under Eddie Jones. It has not been a great Six Nations. Wales superb in defence, England in attack, Scotland shot through with injury. Everyone else all over the place. MA featurescenter_img Topics Pinterest Read more Share on WhatsApp Reuse this content The opening night in Paris when Wales clambered off the ropes in the second half, the only one of the top three teams comfortable playing catch-up. PRFavourite momentTwo moments: Henry Slade’s back-of-the-hand flick to set Jonny May away for his try against Scotland was world class but so, too was Finn Russell’s clever no-look pass that enabled Sam Johnson to slice through a shell-shocked English defensive line. Russell and Slade in the same backline really would be fun. RKAlun Wyn Jones giving his tracksuit top to Wales’s shivering mascot as the teams lined up for the anthems in the wind and rain in Cardiff last Saturday. In terms of action, Henry Slade’s pass out of the back of his hand to Jonny May against Scotland. PRDarcy Graham’s try against Wales at Murrayfield, for the way Finn Russell made it with an inside pass that only he seemed to see. You could just as well pick out dozens of touches Russell made in the games he played, good and bad. He’s the most inventive, unpredictable, fly-half to play in the Six Nations since his boss retired. ABDeleting half of a 900-word match report at around 6.25pm on Saturday evening. Twenty-five minutes to write a new one. In Paris in round one the report needed to be filed five minutes before the end, but at least they had the decency to stop scoring with nine to go. MAIt is hard not be taken by how much Manu Tuilagi loves playing for England and his beaming smile after Henry Slade’s try in Dublin was the enduring image of a breathless opening weekend. Finn Russell’s no-look pass is a close second. GMBiggest surpriseHaving tipped Ireland before the tournament it was bizarre to watch so many good players playing with the zing, energy and imagination of a sack of spuds. Was it purely an All Blacks hangover thing or was there another underlying reason? Maybe they were playing a clever long game: the weight of public expectation heading into the World Cup will be much lighter now. RKThe difference between the Irish team that beat New Zealand in the autumn and the one that got trounced by Wales in the spring. Joe Schmidt has been making comparisons with the ups and downs England have been through, but given that it took Eddie Jones a year to get his team out of that slump, Schmidt’s argument is not all that reassuring. ABThat it is even up for debate whether the Six Nations stays on free-to-air TV considering 8.9million people are tuning in to watch Wales v England. Noteworthy mentions include neither Ireland nor France seeing fit to play a full‑back at full-back against England, how poor Ireland were in Cardiff and that France named the same 23 for consecutive matches. GMOwen Farrell’s wobble. Wouldn’t expect it to last too long, but Farrell seems to be struggling with something at the moment. Maybe he doesn’t like being captain, maybe he’s not altogether sold on playing fly-half. England will need their most influential player to rediscover himself soon. MAThat Wales were ranked as outsiders to win the title. Despite his impressive record, Warren Gatland has too often been underestimated. PR2020 will be …The survival of the fittest. Any team bouncing straight into a tough Six Nations campaign after the World Cup without breaking stride will be doing incredibly well. By then, hopefully, there will be a better structured global season in place that does not merely pay lip service to player welfare. RK Support The Guardian Since you’re here… Player of the tournamentVery few of the captains involved enjoyed a serene Six Nations but Wales’s indomitable Lion Alun Wyn Jones was at the heart of his country’s deserved success. Wales’s set-piece did not top many statistical lists but intangibles such as passion and soul are equally crucial. Three grand slams as a player has cemented his hall of fame inclusion and lending his tracksuit top to a shivering mascot on Saturday was a further touch of class.

first_imgTottenham captain Lloris wants Cup revenge on Arsenalby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveTottenham captain Hugo Lloris says they’re out for revenge in the Carabao Cup quarterfinals this week at Arsenal.Spurs return to the Emirates Stadium a little over two weeks since they lost a fiery encounter 4-2 in the Premier League, where there were issues both on and off the pitch. “Maybe it’s the good thing that we lost the Premier League game a few weeks ago because it is more motivation for us,” Lloris said after Spurs stayed in the title race with a 1-0 win over Burnley on Saturday.”There is no more bad feeling than when you get a defeat. You always try to analyse and make things that we will not repeat again. It is another opportunity and we will try our best to go through.”Every game that you lose it hurts, but of course when you lead 2-1, it’s true that Arsenal is playing very well this season and it is a difficult team to beat but I think we have the quality to do it.”It is important to take every competition seriously, whatever the competition is.”Of course there is priority in the season but it is a League Cup game and if you go through there is a semi-final and a good chance.”And then it is a derby so it is easier to prepare for because there always excitement and enjoyment to play that type of game.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

first_imgGeneric photo of footballs in an end zone.(Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)There’s a new No. 1 high school football recruit for the 2020 cycle. Earlier this week, 247Sports unveiled a massive overhaul to its 2020 rankings, which created major shifts within the class.The former No. 1 overall recruit, running back Zachary Evans, dropped back to No. 2. That paved the way for Bryan Bresee, a five-star defensive end recruit from Maryland, to take the top spot in the 2020 class.It’s a position Bresee owned during the 2018 football season, but he lost it in early 2019. Now that he’s back on top, many are wondering where he plans to sign.In the fall, Bresee revealed the top six schools he’s considering: Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Michigan, Ohio State and Penn State.A few months later, 247Sports’ Crystal Ball Predictions have the Clemson Tigers as the heavy favorite to land the No. 1 recruit.Clemson – 71% of predictionsOhio State – 14%Penn State – 7%Ohio State was the heavy favorite heading into Bresee’s junior season, but the Tigers have made a significant charge over the past few months.Bresee stands 6-foot-5 and weighs in at 290 pounds. He revealed he plans to take one or two official visits in the spring and leave the final three for the fall.College football programs will be eagerly awaiting his decision.last_img read more
