I once tried to brag that I am the strongest. Then the universe made me gaze at her. I found that I was living on a planet, which was nothing more than a grain of sand, among the billions upon billions of stars and planets floating there.
Universe then laughed at me. And raised her voice and said. Nobody is gonna even blink an eye, if your tiny planet was vaporized by an asteroid.
This humiliating defeat is literally going to leave a scar on the Australian team for years to come, England bowler split open the jaw of their batsman with a bouncer, who was bleeding all over the pitch. 😱 As well as, restricted them to a measly total. And in the end, they lost it miserably.
Thanks Heavens! we didn’t make to the semis, Yesterday England wasn’t the same team that we had defeated. They were totally lethal and brutal. 😬
In the 3rd World, a very small number of people have a large sum of wealth. But that also does not help. Because, most of these countries including our lack financial and political stability.
Therefore, a large portion of that wealth is invested (real estate etc) overseas in countries who have much more stable economies, on top of that, most of these countries like Switzerland, UK, Dubai etc, barely query the source of income., which makes it convenient to launder money as well.
In return, it further stabilizes and empowers their economies, as wealth keeps pouring into their financial system from all over the world esp., less stable countries. And these countries barely hold them answerable to weaker and impoverished countries for the source of income invested into their countries.
And even so, the real owner of the wealth can hide behind the shell companies, as did happen in the case of Panama Leaks.
So in short, 3rd World countries struggle to get wealthier and prosperous as their wealth is dried up at home due to the reasons mentioned above.
At last Pakistan’s journey into World Cup comes to an end. Leaving behind a pile of controversies and guilt-ridden India and New Zealand for throwing their games against England /s ….
On a serious note, It wasn’t a bad performance for a relatively younger squad of Pakistan. They scored as many points as the qualifying New Zealand, however they fell short on the run rate. Which was the result of devastating league matches earlier in the tournament. I am looking forward to a massive shuffling in the Pakistani squad, some older players must leave, to make room for youngsters, who did exceptionally well in this tournament and have a bright future ahead of them.
Apple today announced that Sir Jony Ive, Apple’s chief design officer, will depart the company as an employee later this year to form an independent design company which will count Apple among its primary clients. While he pursues personal projects, Ive in his new company will continue to work closely and on a range of projects with Apple.
It’s kind of surprising that Jony Ive is leaving Apple, because he had become synonym with the Apple design. Nevertheless there shouldn’t be any sort of paranoia, because it’s never a one-man show, as there are many unsung heros who’re working as a team behind the scenes in every department. He is gonna form his own design company with Apple as a client.
It was a tough batting pitch, 237 didn’t seem a lot at first, but it turned out to be a very good total, it was a seamers and spinners heaven. In the end, Pakistan defeated the unbeaten New Zealand. However we are only half way through.
We still have to win rest of the three matches to reach the semi finals. As well as it depends on couple of other teams losing in their upcoming contests. It’s always been like this, that we are at the mercy of other teams losing their matches to pave the way for us to the Semis. 🙃
“At the time of the Apollo 11 lunar landing mission, some Americans had reservations about the wisdom of reaching for the stars when troubles swelled on Earth” NYT.
It’s still true in 2019. And I totally second that, we are still living in a world, where wars and poverty are widespread. A large human populous lacks basic health needs., and underprivileged children in the 3rd World are not attending schools. Space Travel is a mere fantasy, for the rich. I have failed to comprehend it, how it could save humanity in the solar system beyond earth.
It’s hard to make a judgement at this point, I am taking all the information with a pinch of salt. However, without doubts, Facebook is gonna be the largest beneficiary of it, if not the only one. People are gonna trade ‘real’ currencies for their. I don’t wanna be a pedant at this point, whether or not it’s a currency at all in the first place.
However it’s clear, it’s gonna come under massive scrutiny and probably gonna get banned for instance in India and China and other countries, who keep strict watch on their USD reserves. There is a legitimate case for ‘easier online payments’ and I had hoped Facebook Messenger would enable it, but in the fiat currencies like USD than their own.
These suckers have never chased a good total ever, yet they chose to bowl first, despite winning the toss, India was supposed to put up a decent total, and they did. There was little to no hope that Pakistan would chase down such a total in a World Cup match.
Pakistan’s only bet was to take 2-3 wickets in the first 10 overs and build up pressure through the rest of innings. It didn’t happen, because they lost couple of run out chances early on. There is no excuse, a better team won the match.
Quite a good explanation how login fields should be and should not be done. It’s a common mistake that plenty of websites make. And very a few get them right. Login Forms, are of utmost importance when it comes to user-experience. Yet, a lot of websites fail at getting the basics right.
