Posted: 01 Jul 2012 02:20 PM PDT

Spain vs Italy Euro 2012 Finals PhotosSpain retained their European title and become the first team to win three successive major tournaments as they beat Italy 4-0 v in Euro 2012 Finals held at Kiev.

Italy tried their best, but threw in the towel after being reduced to ten men following an injury to substitute Thiago Motta, who had been on the pitch for just a couple of minutes. The Match was held at Olympic Stadium, Kiev on July 1, Sunday.

Spain, who started without a recognised striker, were all artistry and guile in midfield while Italy, whose own creator Andrea Pirlo failed to shine, were handicapped by having only 10 men from the hour mark after using up all three substitutes.

Fernando Torress struck at the 85th minute while Juan Mata hit teh final goal at teh 89th minute. Earlier, goals from David Silva and Jordi Alba gave Spain a 2-0 halftime lead.

Spain, playing positively and at pace, attacked from the outset and they were rewarded when they took the lead in the 14th minute with a goal that encapsulated their slick passing and movement.

Andres Iniesta split open the Italy defence with an incisive pass to Cesc Fabregas who outpaced Giorgio Chiellini to get to the byline where he pulled the ball back to Silva who flashed his header past the helpless Gianluigi Buffon.

Italy went close twice through second half substitute Antonio Di Natale but Mario Balotelli, the two-goal hero of their 2-1 semi-final win over Germany, rarely looked like scoring.

At 25th Minute, Pique became the first player to get a yellow card.

At Half-time: Spain leading by 2-0. SUBSTITUTION Di Natale is on. He has replaced Cassano. Two classic goals and this without a proper striker.Spain did not allowed a goal in nine straight knockout games dating back to Euro 2008.

Only 1 team has scored 3 goals in a EURO final: West Germany beat USSR 3-0 in 1972.

At 84th minute, Torres made it 3-0 for Spain. He just came on and he made it look easy, slotting it past a helpless Buffon. Good run. It was Torres' 34th goal for Spain and he adds to his goal from the 2008 final to seal the title.

At 88th minute Spain had their 4th Goal: Torres made a superb run and then laid off the ball superbly for Mata, who merely had to slot it in.

Spain made history by winning Euro back to back 2008 and 2012 Champions! and a World Cup champ in 2010, making history as Spain won 3 consecutive major titles!

Italy and Spain faced each other for the 31st time in their history. The Italians hold the advantage with 10 wins to Spain's Nine (including this win).

Previously, Italy was unbeaten against Spain at major tournaments (penalties shoot-outs excluded), with three wins and four draws.

David Silva put Spain ahead on 14 minutes with a close-range header from Cesc Fabregas’ cross.

Left-back Jordi Alba made it two just four minutes before half time, slotting past Gianluigi Buffon on Xavi’s through pass.

Xavi then fed Fernando Torres, who had replaced Fabregas with 15 minutes to go, to slot into the corner for 3-0; before Torres set up another substitute, Juan Mata, to score into an open net.

Italy went closest with Antonio Di Natale’s second-half shot on the turn that was saved by Iker Casillas.

The Italians, winners in 1968, had to play the final half hour with 10 men after third substitute Thiago Motta limped off with a hamstring strain.

Spain, criticised for decades as football’s nearly men, become the world’s first nation to claim three European championship or World Cup titles on the trot.

They beat Germany 1-0 in Vienna to win Euro 2008; and took their maiden World Cup title two years ago in Johannesburg, edging the Netherlands 1-0 on Andres Iniesta’s extra-time strike.

The result is also the highest margin of victory recorded in either a European Championship or World Cup final.

“My team mates made history before and now I am doing so together with them in my first European Championship,” said Spain’s fullback Alba. “I am struggling to believe it but it seems to be sinking in little by little.

“I told my friends and family I was gong to score tonight and that’s the way it turned out.”

Spain: 1-Iker Casillas; 17-Alvaro Arbeloa, 15-Sergio Ramos, 3-Gerard Pique, 18-Jordi Alba; 16-Sergio Busquets, 14-Xabi Alonso, 8-Xavi; 6-Andres Iniesta, 21-David Silva, 10-Cesc Fabregas

Italy: 1-Gianluigi Buffon; 7-Ignazio Abate, 15-Andrea Barzagli, 19-Leonardo Bonucci, 3-Giorgio Chiellini; 21-Andrea Pirlo; 8-Claudio Marchisio, 18-Riccardo Montolivo, 16-Daniele De Rossi; 9-Mario Balotelli, 10-Antonio Cassano

75000 People go Homeless due to Flood in Meghalaya

Posted: 01 Jul 2012 01:34 PM PDT

Flood in NorthEast has taken a disastrous shape. Units of the Indian Army have stepped up relief efforts in the northeastern states after swollen rivers caused devastation in the region, leaving over 75,000 people homeless on Sunday in Meghalaya alone, an official said.

The swollen Brahmaputra and Jingiram rivers submerged whole villages in Meghalaya. More than 15,000 houses went under a sea of floodwater, West Garo Hills’ district commissioner Pravin Bakshi told IANS.

The Jinjiram, one the major rivers in Garo Hills, caused havoc after it breached a major embankment, flooding low-lying areas.

No loss of life has been reported so far.

The district administration has sought boats to evacuate people from the flooded region with the help of civil defence and Home Guards.

Bakshi said that 15 camps have been set up to accommodate the displaced people.

A total of 122 relief and rescue teams have been deployed in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh where overflowing Brahmaputra and its tributaries have caused havoc, army spokesperson Veerendra Singh said in Delhi.

Relief operations are on in Sonitpur, Kamrup, Barpeta, Tinsukia, Sivasagar, Jorhat, Dhemaji, Baksa, Nalbari and Darrang areas in Assam, and Changlang in Arunachal Pradesh, according to Singh.

The army teams, he said, were using 122 boats and outboard motors and 540 life jackets to rescue thousands of stranded people.

So far, around 3,500 people have been rescued, while over a hundred injured have been given medical aid.

Besides 180 food packets, around 3,000 kg of ration provided by the civil administration have been distributed among people stranded in isolated areas.

Helicopters are also being used for the relief work.

“The army reconnaissance teams with the help of civil administration are identifying all affected areas to provide immediate relief to the people,” Singh said.

Why is India becoming unsuitable for Investment?

Posted: 01 Jul 2012 03:35 AM PDT

Union Steel minister Beni Prasad Verma today asked NRI billionaire L N Mittal to  stop “maligning” India and its government, asking why the steel baron was not setting up his plants in the country.

“He should stop maligning India and the Indian government. Why is he not beginning work on his projects,” Verma said.

Verma said South Korean steel major Posco is now making progress in its $12 billion projects to set up 12 million tonne steel plant in Orissa.

“Those who want to go ahead, they like Posco are making progress,” the minister said.  ArcelorMittal is waiting for six years to implement its $30 billion projects mostly in Orissa and Jharkhand states.

Meanwhile, POSCO signed a memorandum of understanding in June 2005 with the state government of Orissa to construct a $12 billion steel plant.  Various regulatory delays and controversies prevented the company from starting construction.

The memorandum expired in June 2011 and as of April 2012, it has not been renewed. If it has taken 7 years even for the contruction to begin in case of POSCO which you so proudly quote, how long do you think it would take for Mittal’s to acquire land and start their Mills? And why should he, as a businessman, pump in $30 billion in a project which is not even sure to take off. Wake up, stop talking and start working.

Posco di shut down its camp office on April 29, at Noliasahi in Jagatsinghpur’s Nuagaon gram panchayat area after the national green tribunal (NGT) scrapped environment clearance to the company on March 30.

Dikshit said that almost half of the people living with HIV/AIDS in Delhi were from poor socio-economic background and expressed hope that the scheme will benefit these people.

Health Minister A.K. Walia said that the capital had 11,064 people undergoing anti-retroviral treatment (ART) at nine centres across the city.

Watch Online Episode 9 of Satyamev Jayate on Alcohol Abuse

Posted: 01 Jul 2012 12:42 AM PDT

Satyameva Jayate Aamir KhanEpisode 9 of Satyamev Jayate dealt with  Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse. The show discussed about the grave consequences of Alcoholism,  why the addiction happens and highlighted the losses incurred by people who were prone to it. For the sake of alcohol, Vijay Simha even took money from strangers. No one was spared, he says, and this eroded his social standing totally.

Alcohol does three things to a person: Makes them appear obnoxious, or silly, or both. ’Laxman’, who has been sober for 14 years, says that doctors could only remove the alcohol from his body, but Alcoholics Anonymous helped him to remove it from his mind.

Alcoholics Anonymous helps alcoholics shake off and recover from their addiction.Psychiatrist Dr Ashish Deshpande explains that alcohol addiction is not a habit but a disease to which certain people are genetically prone.


For many people, drinking is a way to ease tensions, bond with friends, relax, enjoy a party, or ometimes join the boss for some official fun. But the tryst with alcohol was far from a happy one for Vijay Simha. From being a bright, successful journalist, he went to being a homeless destitute, all because alcohol had a vicious hold on him.

Psychiatrist Dr. Ashish Deshpande explains that alcohol addiction is not a habit, it is a disease, determined by genetic factors. Recovered alcoholic ‘Laxman’ relates how he struggled with medical treatment for his alcoholism, and spent lakhs, but it was finally Alcoholics Anonymous that helped him kick the condition


Sumir Anand tells how his son Curran went to a party with his friends after their 10th-standard
examinations. Curran was supposed to have returned home in a friend’s car with a driver, but instead he got into a car with an older boy driving. The car crashed, killing Curran and two other boys. Sumir Anand pleads with people never to drink and drive — getting behind the wheel of a car after having had alcohol is like wielding a deadly weapon.Curran Anand had not touched a drop — yet he and two others paid with their lives because someone else had been drinking.


Psychiatrist Dr Vivek Benegal says that five per cent of people who drink become alcoholics, and 50 per cent of people who consume alcohol are hazardous drinkers. The norm for social drinking is two 30-ml measures of alcohol, and the international norm is never more than four pegs, but in India people usually drink five to six large pegs of alcohol at a time.


Alcohol is as good or bad as its user. While it is ideal if people do not consume alcohol at all, if they do, they should do so responsibly and without causing harm or danger to themselves and to others.


And now the Episode Song by Ram Sampath

How do you get back lost moments? Seek forgiveness for unknown mistakes? Munna Dhiman and Ram Sampath give words and music to the alcoholic’s pain.
