Kosovo making progress in security interethnic relations Annan reports

Strengthening the rule of law throughout the province remains a high priority, the Secretary-General notes in his latest report to the Security Council on the UN Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK).”Continued support for the Mission’s fight against crime, through criminal investigation leading to arrests and capacity building of the local police and judiciary, will lead Kosovo towards normalization,” Mr. Annan observes. “The UNMIK regional approach to fighting crime promises to be effective and the initial signs of progress achieved are encouraging.”UNMIK also is committed to achieving sustainable returns in the course of this year, creating the momentum for increased returns over the next few years, according to the report, which notes a modest increase in minority returns, with nearly 1,000 internally displaced people going back to Kosovo in the first half of this year – about four times the number of people who left the province during the same period.The Secretary-General also says that conditions in Mitrovica remain a challenge to the implementation of Security Council mandates on Kosovo, with the Mission seeking to stabilize the situation on the ground by doubling the number of UN police in northern Mitrovica and continuing a dialogue on the matter with the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.As for the Mission, the Secretary-General says UNMIK itself is facing demanding challenges in the coming months. “The implementation of the budget reduction will necessitate the transfer of responsibility and authority to the provisional institutions earlier than planned,” he says, referring to a $61 million cut over the next two years.The Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Kosovo, Michael Steiner, will be in New York to brief the Security Council in an open meeting on Tuesday about recent developments in the province.Meanwhile, Mr. Steiner thanked Germany today for its offer of €5 million (euros) to rehabilitate Kosovo’s energy sector after its main power plant was hit last week by lightning strikes which caused a major fire that has cost the province some 500 megawatts in electrical power. read more

Pioneering women to be formally honoured on noted frieze to right historic

Florence Nightingale came out on top of the staff survey. Widely recognised as the founder of modern nursing, Nightingale also pioneered the use of statistics and infographics’ in hospital medicine.The inclusion of her name corrects a particular injustice: she is thought to have been considered by the original selection committee in the 1920s, but discounted because her name was said to be too long – despite it being the same length as Max von Pettenkofer, a German physician who championed good hygiene and is commemorated on the frieze.  “It’s a statement and it’s about the future as much as it’s about the past,” said Professor Peter Piot, director of the LSHTM. “This restores a historic injustice, to a certain degree.”Special planning permission was granted in May and the three surnames will be added in October to mark the institution’s 120th anniversary.  The main entrance to London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in London Ball, an African American chemist who developed an injection to treat leprosy, will be the first black scientist to be included, adding further diversity. The women were selected by the university’s staff who were invited to nominate female “pioneers” of tropical medicine, who were contemporaries of the men already commemorated on the frieze.“We wanted to respect the historic nature of this building, which was inaugurated in 1929,” said Prof Piot. “So there are no living women.”The Chief Medical Officer for England, Dame Sally Davies agreed.“It is very important to mark the outstanding contributions of women in science as it may inspire the next generation of female scientists. For too long the achievements of female scientists were overlooked including Rosalind Franklin [one of the pioneers of modern genetics]. This is beginning to change and I look forward to more celebrations of women in this field.” The facade of one of Britain’s most revered scientific institutions is to be altered to make way for the names of three women in a bid to set right a “historic injustice” against women.The names of Florence Nightingale, Marie Curie and Alice Ball will be chiseled into a 90-year-old historic frieze adorning the The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) in the heart of Bloomsbury, London.The grade two listed facade has until now only boasted the names of male scientists, including the French microbiologist Louis Pasteur and Edward Jenner, the English physician who discovered the smallpox vaccine. Campaigners have long complained about the “airbrushing” of prominent women from history and recently – after a protected campaign – managed to get the author Jane Austin featured on the new £10 note.–– ADVERTISEMENT ––The issue in the area of science is no less controversial and the alterations to the university’s frieze are designed to correct the imbalance.

Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. In a letter granting permission, Camden Council’s chief planning officer said adding the names would “positively contribute to the significance of this listed building, both historically and architecturally.”Dr Keogh said that she also hoped the additions would encourage more female students and academics to work in the field of global health.But commemorating the women would not automatically rectify the lack of female global health leaders, she added. “I think we still see that in the upper echelons of academia there are many more male professors. Women are overrepresented at the more junior levels,” she said.Research in The Lancet journal found that within global health centers at the top 50 universities in the US, women make up 84 per cent of the student body, but hold 24 per cent of leadership positions.  The women’s surnames will be added in October, joining 23 men including Louis PasteurCredit:LSHTM Dr Ruth Keogh, associate professor in the Medical Statistics Department at LSHTM, welcomed the initiative but said the women’s names should “probably” have been added sooner.“I think it is important to make these big gestures sometimes to really emphasise the values of the school,” she said.The physicist and chemist Marie Skłodowska-Curie was also highlighted by staff. She was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, the first person and only woman to win the Nobel prize twice, and the only person to win the Nobel Prize in two different scientific fields. The main entrance to London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in LondonCredit:LSHTM Her research was crucial in the development of x-rays in surgery and she helped to fit ambulances with this equipment during the First World War. But it was Prof Piot who championed the addition of Alice Ball, an African American chemist who revolutionised early treatment options for leprosy after she developed an injection that was widely used for two decades.Prof Piot said that diversifying the people represented on the frieze was his ambition since he joined the university almost nine years ago, while leprosy was the disease that inspired him to enter global health. After Ball died in 1916, aged just 24, the president of the University of Hawaii – where she was the first woman to graduate with a Master’s degree in chemistry – published her findings as his own. Only decades later was Ball was given credit for her work. Protect yourself and your family by learning more about Global Health Security  The women's names in carvings “I am delighted that Alice’s name will join the ranks of the many notable physicians and researchers,” said Paul Wermarger, a retired science librarian at the University of Hawaii who has researched Ball’s life and set up a scholarship in her name.“Alice’s work gave hope to both patients and physicians. That hope encouraged people afflicted with leprosy to seek treatment instead of trying to hide their disease” he said.The three women’s names will be displayed above the surnames of Sir John Pingle, Thomas Sydenham and James Lind – which sit over an entrance to the university on Gower Street.  read more

FAI board meeting today set to discuss Delaneys departure

first_img THE BOARD OF the Football Association of Ireland (FAI) is set to meet later today, with John Delaney’s departure from the organisation expected to be discussed.On Saturday, The42.ie reported that the FAI’s executive vice president – and former chief executive – would be leaving the organisation, but no formal announcement has yet been made.Secretary of Kerry District League Soccer John O’Regan also confirmed to Radio Kerry that Delaney sent him a text to confirm he was “stepping down” from his role as the FAI’s Executive Vice-President. It follows a series of turbulent weeks in the public eye for the FAI, which began when the Sunday Times reported that Delaney had given a cheque of €100,000 to the organisation in 2017.The FAI, in a series of statements, said it was a bridging loan after it experienced a short-term cash flow issue.Appearing before the Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport last week, Delaney refused to answer questions about the €100,000 loan and said he was precluded from doing so on legal advice. This led to criticism from some members of the committee, including Sinn Féin TD Imelda Munster who accused Delaney of acting “disgracefully”. In a statement last night, the FAI said it is taking urgent steps to address its current governance and financial issues.“The Association continues to work to restore the trust of its stakeholders including the Minister and Sport Ireland as soon as possible. The FAI wants to ensure that all those who play football across Ireland do not suffer as a result of the actions of the Association,” it said.The statement also said the board would be meeting today, and it’s expected the terms of Delaney’s departure will be discussed. Ongoing governance reviews into the organisation are also expected to feature on the agenda. Delaney became Treasurer of the FAI in 2001, and then became full-time CEO in 2005.He served that role until late on Saturday 23 March, when it was announced that he would assume a new role entitled Executive Vice President following a governance review conducted by Jonathan Hall Associates. With reporting from Gavin Cooney 38 Comments Share97 Tweet Email By Sean Murray 22,120 Views Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article https://jrnl.ie/4592137 Monday 15 Apr 2019, 10:41 AM Short URL Image: Leah Farrell/Rollingnews.ie Apr 15th 2019, 10:41 AM FAI board meeting today set to discuss Delaney’s departure The former FAI CEO has faced criticism after he refused to answer questions on the €100k loan, citing legal advice.

Homer tourism reaches alltime high

first_imgHomer, the little town at the “End of The Road,” is becoming an increasingly popular travel destination.Listen nowKayakers in Kachemak Bay.(Photo courtesy of the Homer Chamber of Commerce)Jan Knutson is the Visitor Center Coordinator with the Homer Chamber of Commerce. She said that 2016 has been a record-breaking year for the Homer tourism industry.“It has been a banner year for Homer and the surrounding area in terms of the number of the visitors. This year we had over 12,600 visitors,” Knutson said.The visitor center welcomed 219 tourists on July 21 alone, breaking the record for number of daily visitors. In comparison, the average number of visitors per day was 94 in 2015.Increases in the number of visitors have translated into higher revenues for a number of Homer businesses. Homer city campgrounds, for instance, reported a revenue increase of $5000 in comparison to August 2015.Knutson said that local bed and breakfasts have also seen increases in occupancy.“With several of the B&Bs last year, they had 60 percent occupancy, this year it’s 92 percent. They’re all booming,” Knutson said.Besides the increase in the number of visitors, the Chamber of Commerce has seen a number of other changes, Knutson said.“The trends that we see that are new this year, one is more and more motorcyclists are coming in. The other trend I’m seeing is more and more people, depending on what their budget is, are coming to camp because their budget may be limited, but they really want to come to Homer,” Knutson said.The Homer Chamber of Commerce is open Monday through Friday 9 am – 5 pm throughout the year. It will also be open on Saturdays from 10 – 3 pm through the end of September.last_img read more

Pics MS Dhoni in Ladakh to celebrate Independence Day as part of

first_imgMahendra Singh Dhoni in Indian Army uniform.TwitterIndian cricket legend Mahendra Singh Dhoni has arrived in Ladakh for Independence Day celebrations, in his capacity as a honorary Lieutenant Colonel of Indian Army. It had been reported that MSD would be in Leh for flag hoisting ceremony and now pictures have emerged showing the wicketkeeper-batsman, in his army fatigues, arriving in the region.This visit comes at a crucial time as the Indian government had taken the landmark decision to remove Article 370 that conferred special status on Jammu and Kashmir, from the province. This move was preceded by unprecedented levels of security intensification. Thousands of extra troops were sent to the valley to as a precautionary move.Interestingly, the 2011 World Cup-winning captain also found himself in the state at the same time. After the completion of India’s journey in the 2019 World Cup, MSD had applied for two months leave from the Indian cricket team. He decided to spend part of this time in training with Territorial Army’s Parachute Regiment, part of 106 TA Battalion. Dhoni having some snacks with fellow officersTwitterThere have been very few pictures of Dhoni from this phase of his service that have come out. But now, one Twitter user has uploaded some other pictures from Mahi’s visit to Ladakh which throw some light on the cricketer’s activities currently. MS Dhoni being greeted by another officerIn these four pictures, MSD can be seen at a mess having something to eat, giving an autograph  and shaking hands with fellow Army personnel. Since Dhoni was scheduled to spend 15 days with the Army in training, and it started at the beginning of the month, these set of events may be his last in this stint. He had reached Ladakh a day prior to August 15.  Dhoni seems to be giving an autographWhen Dhoni returns to his home, he will have to make some tough decisions. His form hasn’t been all that good in the last couple of years and he has often faced criticism for not showing enough intent. Though, he did regain his form in the ODI series in Australia and New Zealand earlier this year, and also performed magnificently in the Indian Premier League, his efforts in the ICC 2019 World Cup were again rather underwhelming. Dhoni being saluted in LadakhEven the selectors have made it clear that Dhoni isn’t the man they see playing for India in the next World Cup. The focus seems to have completely shifted on to the young Rishabh Pant. Whether Dhoni is brought back into the team to guide the youngster from Delhi or whether the former ‘Captain Cool’ is asked to walk away from international cricket, only time will tell.last_img read more

Meet the Entrepreneur Whose Startup Raised 24 Million Thanks in Part to

first_img It’s got to feel pretty good when you have a vote of confidence from Mark Zuckerberg.This week, The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, the fund currently worth $48 billion overseen by the Facebook co-founder and his wife Dr. Priscilla Chan, made its first investment, leading a $24 million funding round for Andela, a 2-year-old startup that trains software developers in Nigeria and Kenya and places them with big name tech companies that include Microsoft, Google and yes, Facebook.Jeremy Johnson, the co-founder and CEO of the company, says that the missions of Andela and the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative are closely aligned. “I was impressed by their dedication to wanting to unlock human potential around the world,” he told Entrepreneur. “We care about the same things.”Related: 5 Steps You Should Take to Prepare for Facebook’s ‘All Video’ Future”We’re operating on a continent with 1.1 billion people, [a population] that’s also the youngest and fastest growing in the world. We have a lot of work to do,” Johnson says. “We’re going to continue expanding the pipeline in our existing countries, which means growth in Nigeria and Kenya.”Johnson says Andela plans to launch in a third country, with an announcement to come sometime this fall.  The 31-year-old founder’s previous company, 2U, an online degree platform that partners with institutions such as Georgetown and University of Southern California, went public in 2014. The idea for Andela first came into view before 2U’s initial public offering when Johnson was invited to Nairobi to give a talk on the state of online education around the world.Related: Facebook Will Start Scanning 10,000 Posts a Second to Make Comments Less TerribleUpon seeing the tech talent there, Johnson was inspired. He says that his initial thought was that he would help fund the company that ultimately became Andela, but not be a part of the company’s day-to-day growth. “After my first trip to Lagos, I spent a day interviewing the finalists for our first pilot class,” he says. “I realized I just couldn’t stop thinking about it. I had to do it.”Johnson has high hopes for the company’s future. “Ten years down the road is how we think of it. I think people overestimate what is possible in a year and tragically underestimate what can be done in 10,” he says. “I think we have the ability to literally launch 100,000 amazing developers across the continent. And the process changed the way the tech world thinks about where engineers come from and what they look like.” June 17, 2016 Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Register Now »center_img Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. 3 min readlast_img read more

on New Delhi to rethink its strategy in South Asia and encourage it to better its relations with Beijing Chinese media reported on Wednesday However state-run Global Times in its editorial did not elaborate what India’s strategy in the region was Chinese President Xi Jinping will arrive in Dhaka on 14 October before leaving for India to attend the two-day Brics summit in Goa from 15 October PM Modi and President Xi Jinping shake hands in the G20 summit 2016 Reuters According to the daily India need not be "jealous" of increasing ties between Dhaka and Beijing and it was wrong to think that Xi’s trip to Bangladesh was "to snatch the South Asian country from the embrace of New Delhi" Xi’s visit to Bangladesh will be the first by a Chinese President in 30 years "India will not need to be jealous of an increasingly close relationship between Beijing and Dhaka because the improvement of local infrastructure and the overall economic ecology in Bangladesh will create favourable external conditions for connecting with markets in India China and Southeast Asia" the editorial said "However it would not necessarily be a bad thing if an increasingly close relationship between China and Bangladesh puts some pressure on New Delhi to rethink its strategy in this region and encourages it to put more effort into improving relations with China during the upcoming meeting between President Xi and Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the Brics (Brazil Russia India China South Africa) summit" The report said India thinks that China is trying to carve out a "pre-eminent role" for itself in South Asia to "contain" India —a dominant country in the region "Some Indian people may mistakenly flatter themselves when they think China’s Belt and Road initiative is aimed at balancing India’s influence" "But such views are too simplistic" it added "The initiative connecting more than four billion people in 65 countries is not about marking Beijing’s strategic circle on the subcontinent of South Asia but instead represents an open-ended initiative that welcomes the participation of numerous other countries" The International Cricket Council’s (ICC) proposed two-tier Test system will not save cricket It won’t save cricket because “context” the latest buzzword among cricket administrators is not Test cricket’s biggest problem A lack of quality is combined with a skewed financial structure that offers the widest and deepest rewards for playing T20 cricket Representational image Reuters What the two-tier system will do is make the rich teams richer and the poor teams poorer which is to say it would institutionalise the already existing inequality in the international game and aggravate the situation even further For proof just look at any professional football league around the world The money goes to the top – whether that’s the Premier League La Liga or Serie A Those in the lower divisions essentially fight for scraps though some of the big money trickles down Sure there’s the potential to be promoted but promotion is often followed quickly by demotion Even if they stay up their goal is to survive as best they can with Leicester City being the glitteringly obvious exception At least a private football club can hope that there is a billionaire somewhere with a football fetish who will swoop in and rescue them from financial purgatory For national teams no such saviour is possible There’s also more depth in football Leagues have 20 teams Cricket’s two-tier system would have 12 teams total with seven above and five below That’s just not enough teams to safeguard against those times when certain teams will struggle which is part of the cycle of sports All teams go through transition periods and success ebbs and flows It is exactly the problem Test cricket faces currently with 10 teams so why the ICC thinks reducing that number to seven and classifying five (albeit accurately) as “second-tier” will boost their fortunes is anyone’s guess It’s a cosmetic change that does nothing to tackle the underlying structural problems that plague Test cricket Taking the rankings as they stand today West Indies Bangladesh and Zimbabwe would be relegated It’s hard to see why anyone would pay millions of dollars for the television rights for them to play each other Claiming that cricket will be competitive in the second-tier and therefore more attractive misses the point The quality of the contest matters most which is why they aren’t making the big bucks as it is At least now when one of the more prosperous teams tour – India or Australia–these boards get a chance to earn some money If they can’t play the big teams you aren’t simply leaving them crumbs; you are removing them from the dinner table entirely As it is the smaller teams such as Zimbabwe and Bangladesh don’t get to play the better teams as often they as need to in order to get better as players on the field as well as financially off it Sure under the ICC’s proposed rules teams can schedule their own series outside the Test championship structure but does anyone expect a team like India for example to schedule a Test series against Zimbabwe or Bangladesh Zimbabwe has only played 14 Tests over the last five years (India will play more Tests than that in their home season this year alone) and only five of those were against teams ranked in the top seven In that time Australia England and India have not played a Test against Zimbabwe Zimbabwe cricket may be beset by home grown problems but starving it and its fans of high quality cricket isn’t the way to revive it This is why Sri Lanka Cricket was absolutely right to reject the idea "Sri Lanka Cricket has decided not to support two-tier Test cricket as we have decided it’s detrimental to SLC and for its future" SLC president Thilanga Sumathipala said "We feel that to make it a top seven – you are virtually relegating the bottom three to a different level" Then there’s the money If you want to be a Test cricketer there’s only team – the national team However if you want to be a T20 player there are dozens of teams spread across multiple countries Even if you never make it to your national side you could play in the Indian Premier League the Big Bash and the Caribbean Premier League Even Pakistan has a T20 league now These leagues pay much better than a number of national boards can as well Plus the investment isn’t as arduous You don’t need to know how to bat out a session on a turning pitch on the fifth day of a Test or see off the new ball on an overcast English morning Other proposed changes such as day-night Tests and four-day Tests while necessary in a globalised league-hopping world are also no more than window dressing Making it easy to watch poor cricket doesn’t change the poor nature of the cricket In other words cricket is caught in a vice of its own making and has ended up cannibalising itself It has created multiple versions of the sport but the incentives for playing them are out of balance If the ICC and the national cricket boards genuinely want Test cricket to thrive and not just survive players have to be rewarded to a higher degree Those boards that are wealthier must use that wealth to subsidise those who are not so they can invest in players and facilities and raise the level of the game After all it’s not SLC’s fault that Sri Lanka is a smaller market any more than the BCCI can take credit for India being a large market It’s simply an accident of birth The two-tier system will do none of these things In fact it has the potential to do the opposite and hasten the demise of Test cricket as we know it Rio de Janeiro: The 2016 Olympics in Rio is starting in less than a month but before you head to the Brazilian city check out the most important landmarks of the city and fun facts surrounding this fascinating city To really experience the soul of Rio de Janeiro beyond visiting tourist sites like the statue of Christ the Redeemer Sugarloaf Mountain or Copacabana Beach you need to venture out onto key urban and natural spots The following is a list of 16 places you should not miss including some classics and a few alternative sites if you want to feel the real Rio during the Olympics: SANTA TERESA Up on a mountain top this is one of the most Bohemian neighbourhoods in Rio a labyrinth of narrow cobblestone streets and old houses with art as its symbol In Santa Teresa you can enjoy varied local cuisine in restaurants that almost feel like art galleries with a relaxed atmosphere where you can have your beer standing inside the premises in the middle of the street or sitting on the kerb In this perfect mix of colonial architecture and cosmopolitan culture live music persists until the sun rises over Rio’s mountains SELARON STEPS Turning the half-destroyed stairs opposite his home in Rio into a masterpiece: that was the goal of the late Chilean artist Jorge Selaron when he tackled this piece of street art that is now a tourist landmark With 215 colourful steps covered in an original collage of mosaics brought in from several places around the world the steps link Santa Teresa with another of Rio’s Bohemian neighbourhoods Lapa RUINS PARK (PARQUE DAS RUINAS) Hidden in the bustle of central Santa Teresa the park holds an old mansion that was turned into a museum and shows memorabilia from the time when Rio was Brazil’s capital With a lookout point that offers breathtaking views of the city the mansion once hosted in its heyday at the end of the 19th century personalities like dancer Isadora Duncan and author Anatole France FORTE DO LEME Located in the upper tip of the half-moon formed by Copacabana Beach the Duque do Caxias Fort also known as the Forte do Leme combines history and wildlife The path that climbs up to the top of Leme mountain is an ecological walk where plants and animals show off their sounds and colours to make visitors forget how close they are to the busy Copacabana neighbourhood Built as a bunker in the late 18th century the fort is now a museum for the military technology of the time complete with two huge cannons BIP BIP BAR "Samba is at home there" that is what locals say to define the tiny bar run by Alfredo Melo "Alfredinho" in the Copacabana neighbourhood Every night musicians play the city’s trademark "samba raiz" at the bar Among the eccentric things that make this a striking place some are hardly conducive to comfort but they add to the flair The audience stands outside the premises and they help themselves to drinks With a pencil in hand Alfredinho will only charge customers for what each of them says they had keeping the bills in a pile of plates You are not allowed to clap At the end of the long moving sambas and "choros" the audience will snap their fingers The Bip Bip’s walls are full of antiques and old photos to prove why it is one of the most popular spots in Rio’s nightlife BAIXO GAVEA Really carioca that is how the Baixo Gavea neighbourhood often known simply as "BG" can be defined Located in the area around iconic sports club Flamengo the neighbourhood brings together the most local Bohemian life without tourists or pretence: people who go down to the pub in their slippers or while they walk the dog and spend all night there with plenty of live music food stalls and hundreds of people everywhere LAPA This central Rio neighbourhood spread over 13 streets is vibrant at night and only barely rests during the day Located next to Santa Teresa and the city centre it often appears on postcards through the famous 42 arches of the old Carioca Aqueduct one of the most important architectural works of the city’s colonial age LAPA 40 GRADOS NIGHTCLUB Located in Lapa this huge four-floor colonial mansion has been decorated to combine the most contemporary cosmopolitan entertainment with classic Rio Stages that alternate between different music genres several bars a nightclub proper VIP areas pool tables and good food attract hundreds of people particularly youngsters This is a required stop for fun-seeking foreigners visiting the city RODRIGO DE FREITAS LAGOON The venue for rowing and sprint canoeing events during Rio 2016 is the dominant setting for anyone wanting to enjoy an outdoor experience within the city Set against an amazing backdrop with views of tourist landmarks like the statue of Christ the Redeemer it is perfect for rides on bicycles quads or paddle boats and also for picnics and easy walks to lookout points where you can take stunning photos MUSEO DA MARE "A place to remember A place to meet" That is the slogan for this cultural centre a special site beyond the peculiarities of being located at the heart of one of Rio’s most violent "favelas" (slums) Its cultural offering highlights locals’ history of sacrifice hard work and resistance The visit is a unique experience almost a must for anyone who wants to see the real Rio MERCADON DO MADUREIRA With a history that spans over more than 400 years the northern Rio neighbourhood of Madureira is the birthplace of two carioca traditions: carnival and large markets Home to renowned samba schools the heart of the neighbourhood is the so-called Mercadon do Madureira a chaotic space that almost 100000 people go through every day looking for anything and everything: from carnival costumes to spices from remote areas of Brazil from handicrafts to useful objects for the home from professional manicures to exotic sweets PARQUE NACIONAL DA TIJUCA It may be easier to say what you cannot do at Tijuca National Park than to explain all the things that are on offer there Close to Barra da Tijuca which hosts the Olympic Park and the Olympic Village this huge environmentally protected area is like paradise for nature and sports Hiking paths amazing waterfalls that you can bathe in rock climbing cycling abseiling hand gliding and birdwatching are only a few of the activities you can do there surrounded by lush vegetation fascinating animals and spectacular landscapes CHINESE LOOKOUT This is a separate walk within Tijuca National Park It is one of the best lookouts in Rio where you can see virtually the whole city From the top of the mountain a Chinese-style structure that emulates bamboo allows visitors to see the city at their feet You can climb up to the top of the Alto da Boa Vista mountain on foot on a bike (with suitable training) or by car or taxi CAVERNA (Rock Bar) The Caverna proves that there is more to Rio than just samba With loud rock ‘n’ roll a creative decor and original food this bar in the Botafogo neighbourhood serves tasty gourmet burgers along with craft beer special drinks and a few street dishes typical of other places around the world MUSEUM OF TOMORROW With a name that sounds contradictory the Museum of Tomorrow brings together classic questions about the origin of the universe with answers that are based on science but prompt further questions Its futuristic design the work of renowned Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava is Rio’s latest postcard-worthy site Located in the harbour area the museum seeks to show what science has contributed to our lives so far and to propose hypotheses about what is to come By the time they leave the only thing visitors know for sure is that all possible futures will depend on our actions as human beings PAQUETA ISLAND About one hour’s boat ride away from the busy central Rio Paqueta island is an eight-shaped paradise that seems to be lost in time Located in the north-east of Guanabara Bay the island has a population of about 4500 Motor vehicles are not allowed on the island which features beautiful beaches hills and rides on horse-drawn carriages and bicycles Flowers fireflies and birds add to the quiet landscape of this peculiar "neighbourhood" a must when you visit Rio de Janeiro Chennai:The trio of goalkeeper Karanjit Singh midfielder Thoi

to his coach’s June meet in Jamaica before the trials and then on to the Diamond League meeting in London The 29-year-old said his coach Glen Mills wanted him to leave the retirement door open "Coach says I shouldn’t say I want to retire just yet I should focus on the year and see how I feel after the (2017) world championships (in London)" said the six-time Olympic gold medallist "And if I still feel like I want to retire I should But he says to give it a chance because I think my coach is pushing for me to go a few more years We’ll see what happens" he added "Personally I don’t really want to continue for years and years because it’s getting hard I have to sacrifice more and more It takes up so much of your time" In any event Bolt said he would not treat 2017 like a farewell tour "I’m never going to come out and joke or be a joke in a season I’m a winner I believe in winning I hate to lose I will never come out and say it is a farewell tour I will want to compete at my best go to the championships and win again" As for the legacy he hoped to leave the sport he has dominated for eight years Bolt spoke about another Hublot spokesman 75-year-old football great Pele "I met Pele
