After a poor first half, Marseille withdrew the German and Isco and gave entry to Vinicius and Lucas Vázquez to extend the team by the sides, which gave good result: victory by 1-0, goal of Benzema.The fact is that Zidane has done relatively well without Kroos this season, which could motivate his decision to bet on the other four means. In LaLiga he did not play against Mallorca due to injury and Madrid relented (1-0), but then reserved it against Eibar and Osasuna and in both cases the whites won and shoneThey scored eight goals and left a good impression. Nor did he play at the Unionists’ house in the Cup (1-3), nor in Bruges in the Champions League (1-3).When Zidane was asked about his motivations to leave Kroos out of eleven in a duel of this caliber, the technician was not especially explicit, beyond stating that he had a plan and the Germanicist did not enter: “There was no injury or discomfort, it was a technical decision. He is a very important player but today’s option was this. When I say it’s a technical decision, it’s nothing against Kroos, who is doing well. I have players and I chose “. With the numbers in hand, it is true that the German is a key piece: he has played 2,543 minutes of 3,360 ‘, 76%; he is the seventh most used player by Zidane this course.While it is true that his participation at the orders of Zidane had been declining as the seasons went by at Real Madrid: in 2015-16 he played 81% of the minutes with the Frenchman; in 2016-17, 76%; in 2017-18, 64%; and in 2018-19, 52%. This course had recovered tone and prominence, but its substitution before the City supposes an unexpected slowdown without too much explanation. The question now is: Will he repeat the substitute in the Classic or will he return to eleven in a game in which Madrid plays life in LaLiga? Real Madrid, a few weeks ago an oil raft, is now a crusher, the dwarfs grow to the white team: he has lost five points of the last six in LaLiga against Celta and Levante; He has lost Hazard, his star signing of the course, probably for what remains; he needs a miracle in Manchester after falling 1-2 in the first round of the Champions League against City; and said meeting left surprising news, the substitution of Toni Kroos, one of Zidane’s strong men since he reached the white bench. Without news of physical problems for the German, the logical bet became that Zizou reserved to Kroos to settle the game in the second half, especially in case Madrid got ahead and needed to sleep the duel. Conditions that were given, but the white preparer preferred to enter Bale rather than the German; then, with 1-2, Lucas Vázquez and Jovic entered in search of a miracle. Zero minutes for Kroos. It was especially surprising that the Marseilles coach gave up German in a match against an opponent like English, a specialist in tame the ball and against which a technical midfield was necessary first of all, capable of discussing possession before Pep Guardiola. Zidane chose Casemiro, Valverde, Modric and Isco before Kroos; Malaga once again entered the eleven in an important game, as he has been doing since late December. He justified the bet, he was one of the best in Madrid and scored the only white goal.
Ernesto Valverde acknowledged his side deserve credit for forcing Inter back in a 2-0 Champions League victory by saying that they stopped them from playing.The Blaugrana took control of possession with Rafinha’s strike that consolidated a late Jordi Alba angle drive.Barca star Lionel Messi was in the stands with his arm in a sling after a fracture over the weekend.“Messi is always missed, but we want to miss him by winning. We’ve said it from the start. We stopped them from playing and we did so throughout the match,” said the Coach in his Press conference via Football Italia.Quiz: How much do you know about David Villa? Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to test your knowledge about Spanish legendary forward David Villa.“It was an important and difficult match and our first without Messi. Everyone was expectant and I think we responded well.“It’s true that today’s game helped us take a step forward without Leo. Our intention was, knowing who we were facing, for Inter not to have the ball and to be very quick in our pressing after losing the ball.“They’re an attacking team, but we were the better team throughout. Arthur played very well and I’m very happy with him.“The change? I didn’t want to risk him because he had a little knock and with everything that’s coming up…”
Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah wave at party workers during a party programme in New Delhi on May 23, 2019.IANSAfter BJP’s thumping victory in the Lok Sabha elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will hold a meeting with senior leaders on Friday on the formation of the new cabinet. BJP has the first back-to-back majority in the Lok Sabha for a single party since 1984.One of the main issues that the new administration will have to tackle is the country’s slow economic growth as the US-China trade war shows no signs of stopping and the global oil prices are only going higher.”While the macroeconomic picture looks stable and promising, many important segments need support from the government,” BJP General Secretary Ram Madhav wrote in a column for Indian Express.He added, “India cannot completely remain insulated from the ongoing trade war between the US and China or the geo-strategic conflict between the US and Iran.”An immediate decision will be whether to keep senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley as Finance Minister despite his poor health or assign Railways and Coal Minister Piyush Goyal to the job of leading Asia’s third-largest economy.Goyal, 54, had stepped into the role twice in the Modi government when Jaitley was ill. Goyal presented an interim budget before the election and a full budget is due after the new government takes office.SLOWING ECONOMIC GROWTH Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah wave at party workers during a party programme in New Delhi on May 23, 2019.IANSDespite the dominance of the BJP and its allies in the lower house of parliament, analysts say it does not yet have the numbers in the upper house for tougher reforms such as relaxed labour and land laws sought by the business community.”But, in the meantime, a chunky capex plan funded by more privatisation and used to build more infrastructure can put growth back on the rails at a time when global growth and trade are slowing,” the Financial Express daily said in an editorial.Economic growth, which fell to an annual 6.6% during October-December, is at its lowest in five quarters, and other economic indicators signal no relief.Modi will also need to resolve a liquidity crisis that is slowly gripping India’s shadow banks.BJP President Amit Shah, who is credited with crafting the political strategy that helped the party retain its base in northern and western India but also advanced in the east, is tipped to be the home minister, a powerful post with control of security and intelligence services.For the main opposition Congress party, however, the next few days are likely to be tumultuous after yet another poor showing. Party chief Rahul Gandhi, the scion of the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty, lost his seat in a family borough in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh.”It is astonishing that Rahul Gandhi has not yet resigned as Congress president,” historian Ramachandra Guha said on Twitter.”Both self-respect, as well as political pragmatism, demand that the Congress elect a new leader. But perhaps the Congress has neither,” he added.
PixabayA near-death experience (NDE) is one of the most perplexing conditions that have been perplexing medical experts and spiritualists for years. While many people consider NDE as proof of life after death, medical experts claim that the survival technique of the human brain to combat life-threatening conditions is causing visual hallucinations.The latest news from the corner is regarding a mysterious NDE testimonial shared by a woman named Adriana on the NDERF (Near-Death Experience Research Foundation) website.In the testimonial shared, Adriana revealed that she experienced something heavenly following a life-threatening event due to complications of lupus. As per Adriana, during the NDE, she saw herself as light and floated in a universe filled with colours. Adriana also revealed that she saw a female figure whom she later identified as her aunt who was deceased a few months back.”I had left my body and began to return home. I suddenly saw myself as a light, floating in a universe full of colours and forms that opened and closed, and I entered them and went through them full of joy, of happiness, of peace—a joy which there are no words to explain–until I came to another portal, so to speak, in which there was a female figure. She was only a light, but when she spoke, she identified herself as an aunt who had died four months before,” wrote Adriana on the NDERF website.Later, her deceased aunt who appeared in the form of light informed her that she will not be able to return to the physical world if she passed through there.”She told me, “Adriana, if you pass through here, you will not be able to return.” I understood that she was giving me a choice. I was still me, Adriana. I was not my body, but I was my essence, and I began to ask myself what there was to return to?” added the NDE victim.The testimonial shared by Adriana has now gone viral on the internet, and it has made many people believe that life after death is real, and people used to continue their journey in the form of souls. Spiritualists also claim that life is just the beginning of the human journey, and the real eternal trip starts once we take our last breath.
Viacom reached a distribution deal with FuboTV, which will soon add an array of the conglomerate’s networks — including Comedy Central, BET, MTV and Nickelodeon — to its live TV internet streaming service.Viacom is now on four “virtual pay-TV” platforms: Dish Network’s Sling TV, AT&T’s DirecTV Now, Philo and FuboTV. Viacom remains absent from Google’s YouTube TV, Hulu’s live TV bundle and Sony’s PlayStation Vue (which dropped the conglomerate’s lineup more than two years ago).For Viacom, there’s some urgency in getting on OTT platforms as traditional cable and TV satellite distributors have seen their subscriber losses accelerate. In 2018, the five biggest U.S. pay-TV operators collectively lost 3.2 million subs, a 4.2% decline.“FuboTV is quickly evolving as a major force in the streaming television space, and the addition of Viacom’s media networks as a cornerstone of FuboTV’s entertainment offering demonstrates the power and popularity of our global brands and programming,” Tom Gorke, Viacom’s EVP and head of distribution and business development, said in a statement. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Last month it spent $340 million to buy PlutoTV, a free TV-like streaming service, and its Viacom Digital Studios division now owns VidCon and digital network and studio Awesomeness.For now, FuboTV is relatively small in the grand scheme of things. Launched in 2015 as a sports-centric OTT TV service, the New York-based company said it had just shy of 250,000 paid subscribers at the end of September 2018. It has raised $150 million from investors including AMC Networks, 21st Century Fox and Sky (now owned by Comcast).Viacom shows that will be available to FuboTV customers include Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show With Trevor Noah” (pictured above), MTV’s “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation” and Nickelodeon’s “Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.”Under the deal with FuboTV, Viacom’s nine core media networks – BET, CMT, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, Nick Jr., Paramount Network, TV Land and VH1 – will soon be included in FuboTV’s base package, priced at $45 per month.In addition, an expanded suite of Viacom channels will be available in the Fubo Extra premier package ($50 monthly). Those include BET Her, BET Jams, BET Soul, Logo, MTV2, MTV Classic, MTV Live, mtvU, Nick Music, Nicktoons and TeenNick. The deal also will bring Viacom’s Telefe and MTV Tr3s networks to FuboTV’s Spanish-language Fubo Latino package (an additional $8 per month).“We’re very excited to enter into this strategic partnership with Viacom, which continues to make prescient and aggressive moves in the digital media space,” said Joel Armijo, FuboTV’s CFO. “Fubo remains singularly focused on offering sports fans a compelling pay-TV alternative with a robust content offering able to serve the viewing needs of the entire household.” Popular on Variety

March 24, 2017 The internet is growing at an insanely fast rate, and every future-thinking entrepreneur should rightly invest in making sure their brands are maximizing the internet to its fullest. Nearly all aspects of business are being aggressively pushed online. Filing systems have gone online. Offline advertising, or traditional advertising as we know it, has been overshadowed by online advertising. As far as traditional business processes go, you name it, and chances are, it’s now online.Related: 10 Fundamental Truths That Will Change Your LifeThis all points to the positive way the internet has changed how we do business. If the internet is changing things, how would you tune your business to rightly position yourself for more growth and better widespread promotion? Here are a few strategies to help you on your way.1. Plan for specific growth.Growth isn’t guess work. Every growth goal must be deliberately planned and pinned down before it becomes achieveable. As an entrepreneur, you need to decide which aspect of your business you need growth in.Narrow down your focus to just an armful of areas. Ask yourself which areas of your business need a thorough makeover in order to bring in more leads? Which areas of your business need to be advertised more? What areas are bringing in the more leads? You cannot answer all these if you don’t monitor your numbers. Every serious-minded entrepreneur knows their numbers. And every entrepreneur should be able to use that data to see loopholes. Growth loopholes, however, are sometimes not easily visible.The best way to know your business growth and numbers throughly is to study your business. Go through each of your online business verticals and jot down how much growth they added in the previous quarters. If you do it well, you’ll have in-depth information about your businesses, ranging from which areas are bringing in the most leads to the areas that should be discontinued. From your final findings, I believe you can plot out a well-defined strategy for promoting your business online.2. Experiment and utilize the right advertisement method.Online promotion won’t work effectively if you don’t understand advertising. Almost all content online is created exclusively for marketing purposes. You would have to do some exploring to know which advertising methods best fit your business. Not every business model will flow with every advertising method. The advertising strategy I used for my freelancing startup wasn’t the same for my cosmetic startup. Niches affect strategies.This is where experimentation is highly needed. When I first started on my journey to make money online, I was skeptical about trying out new stuff. But I soon realized that the only way to reach more customers was to keep on experimenting until I found the winners.It’s from experimentating that I found out that hidden advertisement is hyper-effective for niche product launchings; that Mulpix gives me better insight to Instagram advertising and better use of hash tags than others I have seen; and that having the right personas in business will help you narrow down and get targeted customers.Join the trend and experiment on advertising. Don’t just stop there. Go the extra mile, understand how advertising works, and find out what type of advertising will work best for your type of business. The more you experiment with online advertising, the better understanding you will have about which type of advertising will work for your business and which ones won’t. And the better you grasp this topic, the more promoted your brand will become online.Related: Why Every Marketing Channel Won’t Work For Your Business3. Leverage growth automation.The best growth techniques I know — and sadly I had to learn the hard way — is to automate your online business growth. As a freelancer, I keep coming across companies who are seeking to outsource more work in order to focus on the essentials. To them, it’s better to spend money giving other people time-wasting tasks to manage than to equally focus on the important and time-wasting tasks, and lose out on potential income.According to statistics, businesses are rapidly outsourcing more jobs. Do the same. Automate aspects of your online business that you know next to nothing about. Find ways to make sure you’re only engaged with tasks you can confidently handle and are your areas of strength.Business thrive when there is less noise. Fuzzle out the non-essentials. Look for virtual assistants to help with tasks you can’t handle.There are so many verticals to automate. The more you automate your online business promotion, the more time you have to focus on the company’s growth and getting more clients on board.4. Engage your potential audience.I strongly believe that every business should have a blog (or a vlog). Developing insightful, original and relevant content online positions you as a thought leader within your industry and makes your readers perceive you as a trustworthy voice.Related: #8 Strategies to Create Content Your Audience Will TrustWhen trust enters the scene, you automatically begin to get leads from the people who read your business blog.
