There’s no denying that the inauguration of Donald J. Trump has caused a controversial response in America, and there’s also no denying that Pink Floyd bassist Roger Waters has been an outspoken voice against political corruption for decades. Thus, it’s no surprise that Waters would react to the Trump inauguration, much like he reacted the Trump’s candidacy many months ago.In late September of 2016, Waters held a performance in Mexico City that came packed with a politically charged message. During the song “Pigs (Three Different Ones)” from Animals, Waters shows incendiary images of Trump, with messages like “Trump es un pendejo” (Trump is an asshole) to rally the Mexican fans. He also released inflatable pigs over the crowd of 300,000, and used Trump’s own direct quotes to complement the song’s refrain of “charade you are.”On Inauguration Day, hours after Trump was sworn into office, Waters shared official footage of the “Pigs (Three Different Ones)” performance. The caption simply reads “A note from Roger: The resistance begins today.” Watch the official video below.
The government of Catalonia is considering including Sarajevo in Barcelona’s bid to organize the Winter Olympics in 2030, was exclusively confirmed for Dnevni Avaz, by the government of this Spanish province.The reply, signed by Catalonia’s government media coordinator Marti Anglada, states that the nomination, called Pyrenees-Catalonia, has not yet been formally addressed to the International Olympic Committee (IOC), but that too will be done soon.Anglada wrote that more than two years ago, the Generalitat (Government of Catalonia, op. A.) Initiated a dialogue with the IOC in the preparation, but the candidature could not be formalized until a new Spanish government was constituted. It happened a few days ago and they hope it will be formally submitted soon. The continuation of the response from Catalonia, which interests us most, is the possibility of Sarajevo being part of Barcelona’s bid to host the Winter Olympic Games in 2030.The possibility of including Sarajevo in the Pyrenees – Barcelona bid would restore the spirit of 1992, when the two Olympic capitals twinned and Sarajevo became the 11th district of Barcelona – a response from the Catalan government stated.The 1984 Winter Olympics, officially known as the XIV Olympic Winter Games was a winter multi-sport event which took place from 8–19 February 1984 in Sarajevo, Yugoslavia, in what is now Bosnia and Herzegovina. Other candidate cities were Sapporo, Japan; and Gothenburg, Sweden.It was the first Winter Olympic Games held in a socialist state and in a Slavic language-speaking country.It was also the second Olympics overall, as well as the second consecutive Olympics, to be held in a socialist and in a Slavic language-speaking country after the 1980 Summer Olympics were held in Moscow, Soviet Union.Furthermore, it was the first Olympics held in the Balkans after the first modern Games in Athens. The Sarajevo games have also been the only Olympics so far to be hosted by a Non-Aligned Movement member.
On a high after beating the inform Kolkata Knight Riders, Kochi Tuskers Kerala would be wary of the Chris Gayle threat when they take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in their Indian Premier League match on Sunday. Their bowling might have kept them in good stead in the 17-run victory against Kolkata earlier this week, but Tuskers will be faced with a much-stiffer Gayle challenge in Bangalore. The towering West Indian has been in rollicking form, notching two centuries since joining the RCB ranks.His punishing 49-ball 107 against Kings XI Punjab on Friday was full of brutal aggression and disdain. Interestingly, 96 of his runs were conjured from 10 fours and nine sixes, some heaves clearing the pickets by a mile. If he continues to smash the ball the way he has been doing even the likes of R Vinay Kumar and Sreesanth would be stressed to contain him on a wicket on which the ball has come nicely to the bat.The Tuskers think-tank would have to devise a strategy to rein in the marauding lefthander. But it would be hugely challenging to contain him as he strides down the deck to hit the fast bowlers on the up and stays within the crease to plunder anything that has been dropped short of length. Apart from Gayle, Tuskers will have to contend with the class and aggression of Tillakaratne Dilshan, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers. While Kohli and de Villiers have been in prime form, Dilshan is yet to live up to his billing as a specialist opener in Twenty20 cricket.advertisementThough Zaheer Khan has been deprived of wickets, the RCB bowling has come good in the last two games with Sreenanth Aravind picking up wickets at crucial junctures. Tuskers will look up to Brendon McCullum, skipper Mahela Jayawardene, Parthiv Patel, Ravindra Jadeja and Brad Hodge to come up with scores in excess of 30 to either stitch a defendable total or chase a par score.The Royal Challengers, who have collected 11 points from nine matches, would seek to earn two points from a game which would be a revenge match for them. If they do so, they would augment their chance of advancing to the qualifiers. On the other hand, Tuskers, who have eight points from nine matches, would put everything they have to garner the much-needed two points to keep themselves in the race for a slot in the qualifiers.
Stay tuned to the website for the full match report.
