Speaking on 100 Hours 100 Stars, an initiative started by Fever Network, Ganguly compared the pandemic to a Test match on a dangerous wicket. “This situation is a Test match on a very dangerous wicket. The ball is seaming and spinning as well – the batsman has very little margin of error,” the former India captain said.“So, the batsman has to score runs and keep his wicket safe with this little margin of error, and win this Test match. This is very difficult, but we hope that we will win this match together,” he added.

OnlineTLC’s So Freaking Cheap Takes Penny-Pinching to the ExtremeE! OnlineUndoSpeaking about his life amid the lockdown, Ganguly said that he is enjoying the time he is getting to spend with his family. “It’s been a month into the lockdown. I didn’t mind it earlier. Earlier, I wouldn’t get time at home like this. My lifestyle involved travelling for work everyday. For the past 30-32 days, I have been at home with my family, spending time with my wife, daughter, my mother and my brother. I have got a time like this after long, so I am enjoying myself,” he said.The former left-handed batsman added that he also feels concerned about the ongoing situation and feels sad that it is affecting and costing lives. “But I am also really upset seeing the current situation, because so many people are suffering outside. We are still struggling to understand how to stop this pandemic. This atmosphere all over the world has really bothered me. We don’t know how, when and where it came from – we all were unprepared for this.“People are being affected by this so much. There have been so many deaths. This situation upsets me, and I also feel scared. People come to my house to deliver groceries, food, so I feel a little scared as well. So it’s a mixed feeling. I just want this to end as quickly as possible.”Speaking about what he is doing at home, Ganguly added: “I have been working from home – BCCI and ICC work and my own work. But my own work is a little less right now, because the shooting, the sport and the schools have been closed. But the documents work, administrative work and paper work, I have been doing from home now.”On being asked how he keeps himself positive, the former cricketer said: “Cricket has taught me a lot. I faced real life, high-pressure situations. You have to make runs and there is just one ball left. If you make one wrong move, one wrong footwork, you will not get another chance. These kind of situations make you alert and aware about real life situations,” he said.“It also helps you in making quick decisions, because on field of cricket, you don’t have time to think. You have to decide on the spot in seconds. This game teaches you a lot of things – patience, resilience. It also taught you about failure and success. When you play, you tune your mind towards success. Similarly, in life, when you feel a bad phase in life, you feel you can get through it,” he added.

I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Paul Summers owns shares of IG Group Holdings. The Motley Fool UK owns shares of and has recommended GlaxoSmithKline.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Regardless of whether the UK economy is thriving or not, a Cash ISA is extremely unlikely to assist you in retiring early. Dividend stocks, on the other hand, can help turn retirement dreams into reality. Today I’m looking at three examples that, thanks to their defensive qualities and/or market-leading positions should continue showering their owners with cash through the coronavirus crisis and beyond.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Steady dividendsPower provider National Grid (LSE: NG) is, ironically, one of the least electrifying members of the FTSE 100. What it lacks in thrills, however, it more than makes up for as a stable source of income.  Analysts are expecting the Grid to return 50.1p per share in the current financial year (which began in April). When divided by its price, this gives a yield of 5.3%. For comparison, the best instant-access Cash ISA on the market pays a simply horrible 1.19%. Of course, nothing can be guaranteed given the impact of the coronavirus. In times of strife, even the most defensive companies can be forced to maintain (rather than increase) the dividend or reduce it. If things get really shaky, it may be cancelled completely.Even so, I’d be surprised if National Grid were to join this group for the foreseeable future. Always in demandPharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK) is another stock that should continue paying holders an income in the aftermath of the pandemic. Like National Grid, Glaxo benefits from being in a highly defensive sector. The need for healthcare won’t disappear and nor will the company’s earnings stream. Those already holding the stock may begrudge the company’s decision to keep the dividend at 80p per share since for what seems like forever, but ongoing investment in the business makes perfect sense. Besides, this still translates to a chunky yield of 4.7% as things stand.As a sign of just how reliable the market believes the company is, Glaxo’s shares have bounced back hard in recent weeks. Even so, they still change hands on less than 15 times earnings. For such a reliable dividend payer, that looks a pretty good price to me. Strong financesA final pick of great dividend-distributing stocks is FTSE 250 online trading firm and market leader IG Group (LSE: IGG), particularly after yesterday’s trading update. Thanks to the incredible volatility seen in recent weeks, IG has seen a record number of applications from people wanting to make money using its platform. As a result, revenue has been “exceptionally high“, according to the company.Of course no one — including IG — can say how long the coronavirus crisis will last. What we do know if that the company boasts a very strong balance sheet and remains committed to paying out 43.2p to holders in the current financial year. That gives a stonking yield of 5.8% — over three times what you’d get from the aforementioned Cash ISA.As a holder of the stock, I’m not complaining!Don’t forget to reinvest!Dividend investing is arguably one of the least risky strategies for growing rich from the stock market. That said, dividends will only help to bring your retirement date closer if you opt to reinvest rather than spend what you receive. Doing this ensures more money can compound over time.Learn to discipline yourself and reap the rewards. Ditch the Cash ISA for anything but ‘rainy day’ savings.

Lions 2013: The key match-ups in Test 3

first_imgIsrael Folau v George NorthWell, big days deserve fireworks, don’t they? Australian rugby team player Gearge Smith poses during a photo shoot in Sydney on July 4, 2013. Experienced flanker George Smith has been recalled to the Wallabies for the deciding Test against the British and Irish Lions on July 6, 2013, four years after his last international appearance. The 32-year-old Smith is the sole survivor of Australia’s last series against the Lions 12 years ago and comes in for Michael Hooper as the Wallabies seek to retain the Tom Richards Trophy. AFP PHOTO / Saeed Khan (Photo credit should read SAEED KHAN/AFP/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Innocent bystanders may want to keep their arms and legs inside the vehicle at all times these two are near each other. You might not hear it coming, but it will be ugly.Adam Ashley-Cooper v Jonathan DaviesOk, so Davies is not O’Driscoll. We have moved on from that. He is, nonetheless, the gatekeeper to the Lions 13 channel, a place Ashley-Cooper wants to shepherd Kurtley Beale, Izzy Folau and Joseph Tomane through. It is a big responsibility to man that gap, and Davies has tended to step out of the line often in the previous Tests. He needs to be consistent.Wily, in an I have a deal with Acme-type of way, Ashley-Cooper will do anything to get over the gain line. He is a slavish worker for his team. Davies has a lot of planning ahead to do, whilst he is on the pitch, in real-time.Back in the pack: George Smith earns a recallGeorge Smith v Sean O’BrienLike a back-alley curry, you get to see George Smith all over again.He is back and he faces a man he has never met before. A chugging thumper who wants the ball in his mitts a lot. Smith has made a career out of chopping such men down and leaching onto their ball, but there are so many uncertainties here. No one knows if Smith is still up to international standard.If he is, O’Brien will struggle to stoop down to his level and may not shake him for the entire time he is on the pitch. If he isn’t, the Tullow Tank will ensure that the nuisance Hooper enters the fray. O’Brien has a long day ahead of him. Out of the tackle…: Wycliff Palu has been understated, but works for the team. Now he is facing a big collisionBy Alan DymockCOME SIX Nations time we always talk about Le Crunch when England meet France. In the final match of the British and Irish Lions series in Australia, though, with the tour set at one win apiece as we look to Sydney, this game looks crunchier than snail shells in your cereal.For this all-important day, the Lions coach has laid out an unexpected side while the Wallaby coach has stuck to an almost identical team, with the exception of the return of mystical openside George Smith.This all-or-nothing fixture will undoubtedly come down to a few moments of individual brilliance and with so many key match-ups throughout the sides, there is more than a passing chance that one or more of these confrontations will decide the result.Re-run: Phillips has another chanceWill Genia v Mike PhillipsThe return. The second-leg. The punchline. These two faced-off in the first Test, and although Phillips did not smear himself in glory as the firecracker Genia ran past him and away from him, Phillips still oversaw a Lions victory.Genia is currently the favourite for Man of the Series and dictates how the Wallabies play. However, with Warren Gatland tasking his team with bludgeoning Australia into submission, the two scrum-halves may meet under very different circumstances this time round.Wycliff Palu v Toby FaletauFaletau tends to take the softly, softly approach to speaking, be it to the press or with his teammates. In this series, though, he has beaten defenders like they have pinched his mother’s bottom. He has been merciless.Palu is another one who is understated but valued within his squad. While Ben Mowen and Michael Hooper have won plaudits, Palu has ben mashing rucks. He is strong and when allowed time to improve he can grow throughout a game, making more yards and posting bigger tackles.last_img read more

Cuban’s 60 years of revolution celebrated

first_imgCuba’s ambassador to the U.N., Anayansi Rodriguez Camejo, speaks in New York City at the celebration of the 60th anniversary of her country’s revolution.A crowd packed the People’s Forum in midtown Manhattan Feb. 8 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Cuban Revolution and to honor outgoing Cuban ambassador to the U.N., Anayansi Rodriguez Camejo. The featured speaker for the evening, Ambassador Rodriguez has spent the past two years defending Cuban sovereignty at the U.N. against the aggression of U.S. imperialism. She will now return to Cuba to assume the post of Deputy Foreign Minister.Ambassador Rodriguez spoke about the example of Fidel Castro’s “permanent revolutionary intransigence and faith in victory.” She raised the importance of solidarity not only with Cuba, but with Venezuela, Puerto Rico and Palestine. She ended her remarks: “Long live our socialist and democratic revolution. Of the humble, by the humble and for the humble! Socialismo o muerte! Venceremos! Patria o muerte! Venceremos!”Following the Ambassador’s remarks, event organizers paid tribute to recently deceased Black Revolutionary Nehanda Abiodun. Born in Harlem and active in Black Liberation struggles in 1970s and 1980s, Abiodun lived in Havana for over 30 years. She sought political asylum in Cuba after being pursued by the FBI for alleged involvement in freeing Assata Shakur from prison and other revolutionary activity. An organizer with the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, Abiodun was known as the “Godmother” of Cuban hip-hop. The event also featured speakers from three upcoming brigades to Cuba, which will provide opportunities for people from the U.S. to travel to Cuba and witness the Cuban Revolution for themselves. The 24th International May Day brigade will travel to Cuba from April 23 to May 5. More information is at nnoc.info/mayday-brigade-call.The IFCO/Pastors for Peace caravan will travel to Cuba in June. More information can be found at ifconews.org.The 50th Annual Venceremos Brigade will travel to Cuba on July 21 and return in separate groups on Aug. 2, 6 and 13, providing brigadistas with options to choose trips of different lengths.
