See the moment an opponent begged Neymar not to humiliate him [VIDEO]

first_imgNeymar wasn’t done just yet though as he also scored an indirect penalty in the game. Neymar is well known as one of the most skilful active players on the planet.He also has a well-established reputation of putting those skills on full display in games, even to the embarrassment of his opponents.One person, rather than risk ending up as Neymar’s latest casualty, hilariously cut short any such possibility.Playing in a charity match three years ago to raise money for those affected by the Chapecoense tragedy, Neymar took the ball down the left and advanced on his opponent.To everyone’s surprise and amusement, social media star, Fred Desimpedidos fell on his needs with his hands pressed together, begging for ‘mercy’ from the Brazilian.“Please don’t do this to me, Ney,” he is reported to have said.Neymar, of course, was as ruthless as ever, staggering Desimpedidoswith a couple of dummies before his ball into the box was cleared.Kaka, Gabriel Jesus and Robinho were some of the big names that took part in the game with the latter and Neymar serving as team captains.Neymar’s side eventually won 13-9.Take a look at the full video belowlast_img read more

What are Dual Trauma Couples?

first_imgRachel Dorman, MS & Heidi Radunovich, PhDTraumatic events can have long lasting impacts on an individual, and military members returning from deployment could be coping with exposure to multiple traumatic events. Traumatic events can result in PTSD, anxiety, isolation, and depression. Nelson Goff and colleagues (2014) sought to not only learn more about military members coping with traumas but also what happens when their partners have experienced trauma as well.The researchers specifically sought to learn more about dual trauma couples (DTC) and how having 2 partners coping with trauma impacts the relationship. The study involved 11 married couples, consisting of 11 male soldiers and their female partners (some of whom had a military background). In five of the couples, only the soldier was found to have experienced a high level of traumatic experiences (single trauma couples, or STC); in the other six couples, both members scored as having had a high level of traumatic experience (DTC). Participants had to be 18 years or older, in their relationship for a year or more, and reported no substance abuse or domestic violence during the initial screening. Participants were interviewed separately from their partner, and were also given written measures, which included the Traumatic Events Questionnaire (TEQ), the Purdue Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Scale – Revised, the Trauma Symptom Checklist-40, and the Dyadic Adjustment Scale.[Flickr, 20150718-Z-SW098-196 by Maryland National Guard, CC BY-ND 2.0] Retrieved on September 17, 2015The researchers found communication problems and trauma triggers to be unique themes to DTC as compared to STC. The researchers found that eleven of the twelve participants in this DTC category reported communication problems, such as not being open and sharing information and the avoidance of conversations related to traumatic events. Trauma related triggers, such as being startled by daily events, were identified by the researchers in nine of the twelve participants in the DTC category. Most of the STC participants described positive couple communication (e.g., staying connected while deployed, perspective taking, and being able to discuss issues openly).The researchers recommend for clinicians working with military couples who have experienced trauma to evaluate for communication problems, trauma triggers, and issues with relationship roles and intimacy.  The researchers also highlight the importance of practitioners being more aware of DTC, and the fact that when both members of a couple are coping with trauma, this can add additional stress to a couple’s relationship.

Five leopard cubs charred to death in Pune

first_imgIn a disturbing incident in Pune’s Ambegaon taluk, at least five leopard cubs were found charred to death on Wednesday in a sugarcane farm.The leopard cubs were accidentally burnt to death after sugarcane labourers set fire to farm trash in Avasari village in Ambegaon, according to Forest Department authorities.As per other reports, the sugarcane labourers started a fire after sighting a snake, but instead ended up killing the leopard cubs, believed to be less than three weeks old. The labourers have denied they were aware of the presence of the cubs, said forest officials.Last month, two leopard cubs were rescued from the sugarcane fields in the same region when farmers of Vadgaon Anand village stumbled upon them during harvesting.In November last year, in two tragic incidents emblematic of the man-leopard conflict, a six-year-old male leopard was found dead in a forest near Alandi (near Pune city), while a two-year-old leopard was knocked down by a speeding vehicle in Ahmednagar district. In February 2018, the bodies of three leopards were discovered in Bhor Taluk in Pune district under ‘unnatural circumstances’. At the time, police authorities said the animals had died of poisoning.Maharashtra has witnessed an alarming rise in the number of leopard deaths since 2018, with wildlife activists and forest authorities estimating nearly 35 deaths in the State since January last year.last_img read more

Shah Rukh Khan should play Dhyan Chand on screen, says Abhishek Bachchan

first_imgActor Abhishek Bachchan feels superstar Shah Khan Khan should make a movie on legendary hockey player Dhyan Chand and also essay his role on-screen as he looks like him.The late Indian hockey player is remembered for his extraordinary goal-scoring feats, in addition to earning three Olympic gold medals during an era where India was the most dominant team in the game.Abhishek Bachchan sees a strong resemblance between Shah Rukh Khan and hockey legend Dyhan ChandKnown as “The Wizard” for his superb ball control, Chand played his final international match in 1948.”A sportsman whose life will be fantastic on screen is Major Dhyan Chand. It will be an unbelievable story. These are the stories that need to be told. I told Shah Rukh Khan (during the shoot of Happy New Year) to make a film on it and play the protagonist, because he looks a lot like him.”If you see his photo…just need to change Shah Rukh’s hair a bit. Shah Rukh was a hockey player. I think he will be fantastic, said Abhishek on the sidelines of an event here.Two-three years back, apparently, multiple biopics on Chand were in the pipeline and Shah Rukh was one of the choices to play the sporting hero on big screen.Earlier, SRK had reportedly confirmed that he was approached for a movie based on the legendary sportsman.Hockey, as a sport, isn’t new to SRK. He has been an athlete throughout his school and college life and has played the game. Not many may know that SRK, during his school days captained the football and hockey teams besides playing cricket at the zonal and national levels.advertisementAbhishek, who owns a Kabaddi team Jaipur Pink Panthers, plans to make a film based on it in future.”I would love to do it in the future but not right now. The history of Kabaddi is fantastic. It has his origin in Mahabharat..it is over 3,000 years old. So you can get a lot of exciting content but let it build, then we will think of making it. If you do it (make the film) right now and if it doesn’t work then it becomes disappointing. So let Kabaddi get that recognition and then I would love to do it (make a film on it),” Abhishek said.last_img read more
