Neville Klopp and Pochettino have done wonderful works

first_imgGary Neville has praised Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp and Tottenham Hotspur coach Mauricio Pochettino concerning their works, stating that they’ve both done wonderful jobs.“If you could look at Mauricio Pochettino and the body of work before going into a new stadium, you think he’s had top-four finishes now, and he could win a trophy – Jurgen Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino have done wonderful jobs at Liverpool and Spurs, there will always be that niggle in the back of people’s minds if they haven’t won a trophy at what point do they start to get judged by silverware,” Neville said as quoted by Sky Sports.“Every other manager at every other top club is judged by silverware, what they win and not just top four, top-two finishes. There comes that point, this season or maybe next, for Pochettino and Klopp, it would be extremely helpful for them to put an end to those niggles that exist because of a lack of trophies while they have been at their clubs.”last_img read more

J Balvin: “It’s Time To Create New Legends” j-balvin-pays-ode-reggaeton-during-latin-grammy-speech-its-time-create-new-legends The rapper has been a recognized leader for bringing reggaeton back into the mainstream and harder than ever, since English-language pop-centric U.S. and other parts of the world first heard names like Daddy Yankee, Tego Calderon and Don Omar around the early ’00s (Yankee also won an award last night, for Best Urban Song for “Dura.”) The success of the genre the last few years has been slowly making waves at the Latin GRAMMYs. The genre has been climbing its way outside of just the urban categories and into general sought-after categories like “Record Of The Year,” which Balvin was nominated for twice this year—2011’s Album Of The Year winners hip-hop/reggaeton dup Calle 13 infused reggaeton and other genres in their award-winning Entren Los Que Quieran.Balvin—who has collaborated with artists of other Latin genres, including indie, Alt. Latino artist, Carla Morrison, who he performed with at the show—used his speech for his only win, Best Urban Music Album, to address the state of reggaeton. He brought up the success reggaeton has had the last few years, despite the challenges the music has faced as a respected genre, and spoke about the power the genre has to change lives. “Thank you. I want to share this GRAMMY with my colleagues. All the people from the urban genre that are nominated,” he began. “To everyone that is representing this genre that we have fought so hard for, that has been sometimes a bit discriminated against, but here we are still fighting for it and showing that there are a lot of talented people, that reggaeton has saved lives, that reggaeton has motivated people to leave the streets and inspired better dreams, that shows dreaming is worth it.”READ: 2018 Latin GRAMMY Awards: Inside All The Action From Las VegasBalvin gave a special shout-out to Ozuna, another nominated reggaeton artist who has achieved mass success and garnered billions of views on YouTube. “Ozuna, you know I love you a lot and respect you a lot,” Balvin said.The rapper ended his speech by paying respect to Latin legendary artists that came before him, but said that was time for new legends to be made.”Let’s not kill the dreams of the new producers that are coming up, the new songwriters that are coming up. Value the young blood that is coming because we are the future of music,” he said.”Obviously with so much respect for artists who are legends and will be legends always, but it’s time to create new legends, new motivations. For people on the streets to also want to be like us because we are also an example of what life can be. God Bless”2018 Latin GRAMMY Awards Complete Winners ListRead morelast_img read more

Modi Gandhi duel in Indian state election

first_imgA voter marks her ballot at a polling booth for India`s Madhya Pradesh state assembly election in Bhopal on 28 November 2018. Millions of Indians began voting on 28 November for a key state election seen as a direct fight between prime minister Narendra Modi and his lead rival ahead of the national vote. Photo: AFPMillions of Indians voted Wednesday in a state election seen as a key duel between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his main rival before the whole country goes to the polls in 2019.Modi’s right-wing Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has governed the central state of Madhya Pradesh, home to 73 million people, since 2003 having won three state elections in a row.But polls suggest that the opposition Congress headed by Rahul Gandhi, scion of the Gandhi-Nehru dynasty, could win on the back of concerns about rising unemployment and by appealing to disgruntled farmers.The party, which lost power in Madhya Pradesh in 2003 — and nationally to Modi in 2014 — has campaigned aggressively against three-time chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on issues of corruption and misgovernance.Chouhan, who lead the BJP to a thumping majority in the 2013 elections, has nevertheless sounded confident. Modi himself has addressed no fewer than 10 rallies in the state in a hard-fought campaign.”This is not the toughest election of my career, it’s very comfortable,” Chouhan told reporters after casting his vote.The vote is one of five state elections this month and next that are a litmus test of Modi’s popularity ahead of general elections that have to take place before May but for which no date has been announced yet.Nearly 800,000 voters were also entitled to vote on Wednesday in the remote northeast state of Mizoram, which is governed by Congress. Results from all the state elections are due on 11 December.The BJP is trying hard to maintain its winning momentum after defeating Congress in at least a dozen states since the 2014 national election victory, and has campaigned hard in Madhya Pradesh.An electoral defeat in the state would be a major setback for the party and dent the winning image of Modi, 68.The state, one of India’s poorest and which is highly dependent on agriculture, is also crucial for his rival Gandhi.The 48-year-old is projected as party’s prime ministerial candidate but has so far failed to deliver any impressive electoral wins.last_img
