I-League: Neroca edge past Churchill to grab top spot

I-League: Neroca edge past Churchill to grab top spot I-League: Neroca edge past Churchill to grab top spot Source : Last 20:03 hrs [India], Feb 14 (ANI): An 86th-minute strike by Aryn Williams sealed a vital 1-0 win for Neroca FC over Churchill Brothers in their I-League clash at the Khuman Lampak Stadium on Wednesday. Incidentally, the win for the Manipuri outfit makes the title-race more intriguing as they have now pitch-forked Minerva Punjab FC at the top. Bishorjit Singh continued in goal for Gift Raikhan's team due to Lalit Thapa's long-term injury whereas Felix Chidi was replaced by Nedo Turkovic up front for Neroca while Gopi Singh, Saran Singh and Subhash Singh formed the attacking trio behind the forward. Monday Osagie and Hussain Eldor continued to form the formidable centre-back partnership for the Red Machines that has resulted in their good run of form since the turn of the year. Kalu Ogba, Bektur Talgat, Nicholas Fernandes and Dawda Ceesay all started the game as Alfred Fernandes went all-out for three points. Neroca had a wonderful opportunity to take the lead as early as the second minute in the game. Tondonba delivered a stupendous cross into the box from the right which Aryn Williams got his head to within six-yards from goal. However, James Kithan's powerful fists denied the midfielder the chance to put his team into an early lead. First-half substitute Israil Gurung caused havoc inside the box soon after coming on when he found Nicholas Fernandes with a cross in the 26th minute. Nicholas cuts back a looping ball for Ceesay to head down into the path of Dawda Ceesay whose venomous shot at goal should have hit the net if not for a wonderful block by Kiatamba to prevent danger. A minute later, Nicholas Fernandes missed a sitter. Britto's pass had the Churchill winger within three yards in front of goal but the latter opted for an audacious backheel flick that went awry. At the other end, Williams failed to beat Kithan one-on-one after the midfielder snatched possession from Hussain Eldor at the edge of the box. Both sides continued to create chances but were unlucky with their finishing throughout the game. aikhan replaced Turkovic with Sushil Singh mid-way through the second half and Vorbe's cross into the box presented the substitute with a very good chance to head the ball towards goal but his attempt was well wide. Aryn Williams finally found luck in front of goal in the 86th minute. Saran Singh's long ball was chested down by the midfielder before sending an unbeatable effort past Kithan that ultimately sealed full points for Neroca. The win takes Neroca FC's tally to 31 points in 16 games whereas second-placed Minerva Punjab FC are two points shy having played as many games fewer. Kingfisher East Bengal have also made a strong comeback into the title-race with a stupendous victory yesterday which took their tally to 26 points from 14 games. Churchill Brothers FC Goa will now travel to Coimbatore for Chennai City FC test on February 17 whereas Neroca FC will host Mohun Bagan in their final home game of the I-League season on the following day.(ANI) SEARCH

This Deepika Padukone Video Will Inspire You To Work Out On A Saturday

facebook 257 SHARES You don’t need us to tell you that Deepika Padukone has a body to die for. The extremely fit and lean actress has always left us stunned, be it with her action sequence in films, her gym routine or simply the way she can carry off even the most bizarre fashion trends with that amazing figure. The actress was recently spotted doing a simple gym routine – forward lunges – and boy, are we getting some major fitness inspo (or should we say fitness envy?!). Working out with celebrity fitness trainer Yasmin Karachiwala the actress has the perfect dedication we need in 2018! Check out the video here. @deepikapadukone doing the Forward Lunge on the #WundaChair. Don't get fooled by the ease with which you see her executing it, as it really challenges your balance and stability.

Don't get fooled by the ease with which you see her executing it, as it really challenges your balance and stability,” is how Yasmin captioned the image. Deepika is known for her fitness routine and, in an interview, she had mentioned exactly what is it that keeps her so fit. “I do regular exercise, yoga, eat healthy and positive thinking is what makes me look good. I do a lot of free-hand weights and 4 to 5 sets of stretching exercises with 20 reps, in between pilates or stretching routines.” She had also shared, “I was always slim but I knew my body had the potential to really look defined. I wasn't fat or out of shape, but I wanted to look a lot better. Pilates and Strength training did wonders for my tone and definition. I may have lost maybe a kilo or two at the most in all this time, but have lost inches all around and it shows. I try and exercise as often as I can, but when I'm travelling or shooting, I tend to skip it for days on end." Deepika, apart from slaying at the gym, is looking forward to her next release Padmaavat (*cough* Padmavati *cough*) opposite Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor. The film that was supposed to release in the first week of December 2017 will now hit screens on January 25, 2018 .

Here Are The BTS Pictures From The Bigg Boss Finale

facebook 1.8k SHARES Whether you are a fan or not, you know that one of India's biggest reality shows, Bigg Boss , is ending this weekend. After three months of entertainment (read drama), the show has four finalists fighting it out for the winning trophy and prize money of Rs 44 lakh (Vikas Gupta won Rs 6 lakh in a task). Vikas, Shilpa Shinde, Hina Khan and commoner Puneesh Sharma are the four finalists. The makers, like every year, will show the four contestants a clip of their journey today and judging by the promos it is going to be an emotional ride. Bigg Boss shows the housemates, the snippets of their journey in the #BB11 house making them emotional. Tune in tonight at 9 PM for all the fun! #BB11Finale A post shared by Colors TV (@colorstv) on Jan 12, 2018 at 10:29pm PST While the four contestants take a walk down memory lane, most of the ex-contestants have gotten together to make sure that the finale episode is a grand affair. We already gave you an insight into the episode , with Akshay Kumar (and maybe Sonam Kapoor) coming together with host Salman Khan to announce the winner. Apart from Akshay, Akash Dadlani, Hiten Tejwani, Dhinchak Pooja, Benafsha Soonawalla, Priyanka Sharma, Luv Tyagi, Jyoti Kumari and Bandgi Kalra are busy practicing for their big performances. We also saw picture of Sabyasachi Satpathy earlier in the day. Sapna Choudhary is here too and, judging by her attire, we are guessing a fun dance performance is coming up soon. We've been stalking all the ex-contestant's social media accounts for some insight into the big night and we weren't disappointed. While we are yet to get details about the exact performances, we know for sure that Arshi is performing to a romantic dance number with Hiten. We are betting that either Benafsha and Priyank will perform together (remember, they even entered the show together) or friends Priyank and Luv will put together a fun performance. We were happy to spot Jyoti and Pooja on the show too. We also hope against hope that Akash doesn't end up rapping with Pooja... come on guys we've been tortured enough. Here are all the picture from the big night. Stay tuned for all the updates and let us know who you are rooting for, for the big win, in the comments below. Photo credits: Voot / Instagram

Ramco Systems and XinFin join forces to develop hybrid blockchain solution

Ramco Systems and XinFin join forces to develop hybrid blockchain solution Ramco Systems and XinFin join forces to develop hybrid blockchain solution Source : Last Updated: Thu, Feb 15, 2018 11:18 hrs Chennai: Global enterprise software specialist Ramco Systems and Singapore-based open-source blockchain developer XinFin FinTech Pte Ltd. will join forces to build a breakthrough hybrid blockchain solution. Combining features of public and private networks to provide secure and rapid transactions for the aviation, logistics and human resources industries, the two companies will use XinFin's proprietary XDC01 distributed ledger protocol to build a new architecture based on Ramco's software solutions. Both companies will work on the hybrid blockchain solutions out of Ramco's innovation lab in Singapore. The collaboration will lead to a set of distributed ledgers which can prevent users from sending tokens to incompatible networks or non-existent addresses, a current problem facing the fast-growing blockchain industry. The new architecture will also reduce congestion of blockchain networks which inhibit security, speed and scalability. "At our innovation lab in Singapore, we focus on building prototype use cases to solve real-life business problems. From HoloLens to bots and face APIs to blockchain, we have been investing in next-gen technologies that will redefine the way enterprise applications are used. Our partnership with XinFin will be key to realizing the full potential of blockchain technology in logistics, HR and aviation," said CEO, Ramco Systems, Virender Aggarwal. "We are very excited to partner with Ramco Systems and expand our global client list. We look forward to working together and assisting Ramco's enterprise clients to improve their business process efficiency using blockchain solutions," said VP Blockchain Applications at XinFin, Sameer Dharap. "Hybrid blockchain, powered by underlying XDC01 protocol, maintains data on sensitive financial transactions in the private state on the same blockchain, while a digital asset-based settlement is also supported in a compliant jurisdiction through regulated financial institutions. Owing to its scalable, secure and smart contracting capability, it makes the most appropriate fit for Ramco's requirements," Dharap added. Beyond enterprise cloud adoption, blockchain is the next technological wave that can disrupt industries. A mechanic on the tarmac can use blockchain-based maintenance logs to track the entire life cycle of an aircraft engine, authenticate replacement parts or check age and air miles logged without having to check with other parties or trawl through records. Such productivity gains can be multiplied across industries once the element of trust is captured electronically. SEARCH
