Messi's Self Centered Move To Quit Argentina

Image
Messi has lost his fourth final for Argentina national team after their lost to Chile in a penalty shootout at the Copa America final played in United State. This is a very agonizing for any player and for a player with Messi’s statue, a national team honor will surely be a icing in the cake in standing shoulders to shoulders with the greats in the world, the likes of Pele, Madonna, Zidane, Ronaldo (Brazil), Rivaldo, who have helped their national side to glory and are immortalized in the heart of the fans of their nation.

No doubt, Messi’s legendary statue is in place and no one can take that away for him but I think him calling it quit on the international scene is kind of selfish of Messi. It’s like he considers the hurt he feels alone and not that of the fans. And the timing proves it right; he just felt that he can’t win anything with Argentina, so why continue?

Messi still have years in him to play good football and not providing that service to his nation is selfish of him. Th…

Being successful as an entrepreneur has to do with a lot of factors and one has to be really hardworking and determined to learn from each failure.

With the present economic situation, and the jobless rate, many governments in the world are encouraging young people to go into businesses providing some few incentives to encourage them along the way.

There are various reasons to go into entrepreneurship:

1. The present change in industries: Now there is a global change in which things are being done in the world. With improvement in technology, not many hands are needed in most industries so there are layoffs and fewer people are employed to carry out task that can be easily done with machine.

Player Sent Off For Farting

Image
A Swedish footballer has hit out after being sent off for breaking wind during a match – with the referee accusing him of “deliberate provocation” and “unsportsmanlike behaviour”.


Adam Lindin Ljungkvist, who was playing at left-back in the match between Järna SK’s reserve team and Pershagen SK, was shown a second yellow card late on in what local media called “bizarre circumstances”.


“I had a bad stomach, so I simply let go,” the 25-year-old told Länstidningen Södertälje. “Then I received two yellow cards and then red. Yes, I was shocked, it’s the strangest thing I have ever experienced in football.


“I asked the referee, ‘What, am I not allowed to break wind a little?’ ‘No,’ he replied … I don’t get it but maybe he thought I farted in my hand and threw the fart at him. But I did not.”


Opposition striker Kristoffer Linde told the paper: “I was standing a good distance away but I heard the fart loud and clear. It’s the strangest thing I’ve seen on a pitch, and I’ve been playing footbal…

“Leicester City have today (Thursday) agreed with the representatives of Jamie Vardy to extend the England international’s contract with the Premier League champions for a further four years,” said the statement. “Both parties hope that this announcement will end recent speculation regarding Jamie’s future and confirm his long term commitment to Leicester City Football Club. “Jamie will continue to focus all of his efforts on trying to achieve success with the England team at the European Championships in France. There will be no further comment from either the Club or the player on this matter until the conclusion of the tournament.”


It seems Vardy feels he is just too good for Arsenal or has Arsenal lost its lustre to attract players because even wi…

Weapon Of Mass Obstruction By Wole Soyinka

Image
It is time to call a spade a spade or, in this instance, name the Nigerian media camera a weapon of mass obstruction. What used to be mere occasional infraction, soon corrected, is fast becoming a Bill of Rights – for a minuscule sector of the professional community. We are galloping towards an order of social fascism of which - it must also be stressed - that same society is the prime facilitator of its doom. There are times when tolerance becomes acceptance, then tacit and even overt encouragement. Otherwise, why does it take so long to make the media photographer understand that he or she has no fundamental viewing right that overrides those of the lowest member of any gathering, anywhere and under any circumstance. Let us not beat around the bush – mobsters have taken over community, armed with nothing more lethal than the camera and a monstrous will to capture and monopolize space that belongs to the totality. The media camera has become a pest, an aggressive Viewer. Its wielders…
