He was only announced as Lampard's replacement 24 hours before kickoff and had one training session with a team that had won twice in their past eight league matches. Before kickoff the former Borussia Dortmund and Paris St Germain manager said the last few days had been "surreal" and he did not hesitate in shaking things up -- making four changes from Lampard's last league game in charge. Chelsea attempted almost 900 passes but there was little thrust until Christian Pulisic, Mount and Abraham came off the bench late on. That was perhaps overly optimistic, but Tuchel said the future of Chelsea starts from Thursday morning. Honestly, when you sign for Chelsea, you are absolutely right that you sign for the expectations to challenge for a title," he said.

The current semester (Semester 1, Session 2020/2021) is being conducted much more smoothly. Therefore, I do not see the reason for delaying the starting day of Semester 2 for the current academic year. As such, delaying the starting day for the second semester may still not make it possible for face-to-face learning to resume. Changing or delaying the starting date for Semester 2 will pose problems to existing students, especially those on study leave who would have to complete the semester based on the current academic calendar before returning to work. Furthermore, changing the starting date will affect not only the semester concerned but also the dates for future semesters.

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - For some survivors of the Holocaust, the vow to "never forget" takes on a special meaning when they have only faded memories, or none at all, of parents they lost as young children. Leah Nebenzahl was a baby when her parents, Pipha and Zvi Herschman, were murdered in Nazi-occupied Poland. On Wednesday, Holocaust survivors mark the 76th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp by Soviet troops. Many were reunited with relatives and went on to live their lives in Israel, the United States, Canada, Latin America and other places. But she said she still held fast to her life's motto - "to turn darkness into light and bitter into sweet".

Later I found out it was for conscription into the women’s volunteer corps.”Yun’s parents forced her to drop out. Japanese writer Kakou Senda’s 1973 book Military Comfort Women (“Jugun-Ianfu”), the first postwar mention of Imperial Japan’s front-line brothels, helped confirm Yun’s suspicion about the true nature of the women’s volunteer corps. He set out to identify the women, and his book popularised the Japanese euphemism “comfort women.”Like the term “women’s volunteer corps, ” it disguised the truth. Some researchers contend that Korea was the safest country from which to pull women into Imperial Japan’s vast network of comfort stations. That was why the former “comfort women” had to remain silent while being collectively overlooked or ignored by society.

BEIJING (China Daily/ANN): US President Joe Biden's China team is competent but does not inspire confidence. The good news for US-China relations is that the accession of Biden brings with it the promise of decent speech, a degree of fair play and the restoration of protocol. In putting together his China team, he has called upon partisan professionals who he has reason to trust. If this is an accurate indication of which way the wind is now blowing in Foggy Bottom, then US-China relations are going to remain on tenterhooks for some time to come. As the joke goes, the job of think tanks is to make the taxpayer think they need more tanks.

Reality series Bling Empire can come across as superficial, what with its stars constantly prying into each other's juicy personal lives all the while decked out in the most expensive designer duds. "People think I sit around the house and I'm so lucky I'm married to a plastic surgeon, and I don't have to do much. In fact, Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery was something that I founded. Christine believes the significance of Bling Empire goes beyond a show about the lifestyle of the affluent – it is about seeing more Asian-American representation in the media.

But his recent statements regarding the pandemic and the flooding in Kalimantan have shattered any illusions. However, it is wrong to prematurely dismiss suggestions offered by environmentalists and scientists that environmental destruction in South Kalimantan is also a causal factor in the massive flooding. On her Twitter account, Environment and Forestry Minister Siti Nurbaya Bakar said there was “misleading information” regarding the causes of the South Kalimantan flooding that was “deliberately spread by some parties”. The reality is that the rate of deforestation in South Kalimantan is at best alarming. This only shows how post-truth politics has normalised science denial, not only among the public but also among government officials.
