SOCHI: Neymar hobbled out of a training session on Tuesday, setting alarm bells ringing in the Brazil camp as they prepare for their second World Cup group game against Costa Rica on Friday. "Neymar came out of training today with a painful right ankle," said Vinicius Rodrigues, a spokesman for the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF).He put the the knock down to the number of fouls Neymar received in Sunday's 1-1 draw against Switzerland in Rostov-on-Don in Brazil's opening Group E outing.Neymar had not taken part in training on Monday, as the side returned to their base in Sochi on Russia's Black Sea coast.Rodrigues said the problem concerned the Paris Saint-Germain star's ankle and not the foot he fractured in February, an injury that forced him to miss the rest of the club campaign. "As soon as he felt the pain he went to the physio. He will stay there for today and tomorrow (Wednesday) morning, and will train as normal tomorrow," added Rodrigues.Brazil are then due to travel to Saint Petersburg, where they will play Friday's game.

To be clear, Tesla is strongly in favor of people being allowed to drive their cars and always will be. (Text: Viandra D'souza) Tesla Roadster 12 Jun, 2018 In February, SpaceX founder Elon Musk sent a cherry- red Tesla convertible to space. In 2001, a pizza chain paid $1 million to the Russian space agency to deliver a pizza in space. Last week, I tested the latest technology in the Model S P100D as a way to check back in with the brand, and it gave me that feeling of power and adrenaline. The Tesla Model S P100D is one of the best underrated true driver’s cars out there.

Sakshi, an Aam Aadmi Party supporter from Vasant Vihar, who was unaware about her age was sitting cluelessly in the recent protest with a baby in her arms. Such was the scenario of the aam aadmi in the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)’s protest on Sunday. It was not just Sakshi, but several other supporters, young and old who took the streets in order to vent out their personal issues in their areas rather than the ongoing battle between Delhi CM, Arvind Kejriwal and Delhi Lieutenant Governor (L-G) Anil Baijal. The children in the protest were seen dancing and laughing, enjoying the entire scene created by the protesters. He was then interrupted by his elder brother and changed the statement to praising the Delhi CM.

Coming to the aid of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, four chief ministers of the non-BJP ruled states of West Bengal, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Kerala on Sunday referred his ongoing tussle with the Delhi Lt-Governor as a "constitutional crisis" and urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to intervene and resolve it at the earliest. West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, Andhra Pradesh's Chandrababu Naidu, Kerala's Pinarayi Vijayan, and Karnataka's HD Kumaraswamy met PM Modi on the sidelines of the NITI Aayog meeting and requested him to resolve the crisis to maintain the "federal structure of the Constitution". "I along with the Hon'ble CMs of Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Kerala have requested Hon'ble PM today to resolve the problems of Delhi government immediately (sic)," Banerjee tweeted after meeting with Modi. Besides the four chief ministers, Kejriwal also got support from BJP's ally in Maharashtra Shiv Sena and DMK in Tamil Nadu. The Chief ministers of Congress-led governments from Punjab and Puducherry, however, remained a bystander on the issue as their party is in direct conflict with the AAP in Delhi.

more-inThe Football World Cup 2018 kicked off on June 14 with headlines such as, “Russia lifts the iron curtain”. By the time he returned to Russia, in 1994, communist rule had collapsed, but he didn’t know whether to “celebrate or weep” because of the trauma still unfolding. After the former Soviet Union opened up, there have been many writers bringing us voices from Russia. In 1993, David Remnick, The New Yorker editor who had been posted in Russia as a reporter for The Washington Post, wrote about the collapse of the Soviet Union in Lenin’s Tomb: The Last Days of the Soviet Empire. In 2013, Svetlana Alexievich, who later won the Nobel Prize, did the same in Secondhand Time, recounting the history of communism’s demise through voices who lived through it.

Sensex among the top performing markets in region in local currency terms. Graphic: MintMumbai: India is among the top performing markets in Asia in local currency terms, but in dollar terms, its performance has been rather unimpressive. Around $1.5 billion of Indian shares were dumped by FIIs in May. India’s benchmark Sensex has returned 4.6% so far this year, the best among the major markets in Asia in local currency terms. Indian stocks’ relatively better performance in rupee terms has ensured strong interest from domestic investors, particularly mutual funds.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is falsely crediting his Singapore summit with the destruction of missile launch sites in North Korea. TRUMP: "No more nuclear testing or rockets flying all over the place, blew up launch sites. If anything has been done to pull back on missile launch sites, it's marginal at best. Officials have not verified reports that North Korea may have demolished a stand used for missile-ejection tests in May. This may happen, as Kim agreed to work toward the return of U.S. troops missing in North Korea from the Korean War.

But amid a scourge of sticky loans and wrath against wilful defaulters, highstreet banks are taking a zero tolerance stand. Since banks rely on these reports by independent professionals, it amounts to a clear breach of trust and fraud if such reports are blatantly wrong. However, unless a bank actually commissions professionals under an arrangement, it may be difficult for the banks to bring an action against these professionals. In some cases title reports and other certificates are commissioned by the borrowing client rather than the lending back.“It’s evident lawyers and accountants cannot wriggle out easily by submitting false reports. "In quickening loan disbursal, such borrowers often hire professionals already on the bank panel of lawyers and CAs.

This exposes many defaulters to bankruptcy courts by mid-August, posing the threat of loss of control to many promoters. Given the situation, distressed funds are putting alternative strategies in place. “Funds are using an asset reconstruction company (ARC) to warehouse the acquired loans. “Status quo is no longer an option,” said Nachiket Naik, managing director at IREP Credit Capital, a Mumbai-based private credit fund. “To pay off lenders under OTS, funds will have to make an equity investment in the firm, which then pays off the lenders.

Based on the Monetary Policy Framework signed between the government and the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on February 20, 2015, India’s monetary policy moved into an Inflation Targeting (IT) framework. Some economists, therefore, advocate moving away from the Inflation Targeting framework of the RBI and towards a Nominal GDP Growth Targeting framework. Nominal GDP growth is the sum of real GDP growth and inflation. So, the net effect on nominal GDP growth depends on the magnitude of inflation and real GDP growth. This would prevent real GDP growth from worsening further.
