Arda Turan steals winner in Atletico’s 2-1 win over Real Madrid

first_imgArda Turan and Tiago Cardoso scored the goals for Atletico MadridAtletico Madrid won 2-1 at Real Madrid in the Spanish league on Saturday to take a small measure of revenge for last season’s loss of the European Cup final to its crosstown rival.Atletico struck first through Tiago Cardoso’s header in the 10th minute, but otherwise Madrid dictated the first half with Cristiano Ronaldo leveling from a penalty the forward earned in the 26th.The second half, however, was all Atletico as Arda Turan went on and scored the 76th-minute winner before fellow substitute Antoine Griezmann went close to adding another.Madrid’s second straight loss left it four points behind the defending champion, and six points adrift of Barcelona after the league leader beat Athletic Bilbao 2-0 thanks to Neymar’s brace from a pair of passes by Lionel Messi.”We have to analyze this problem and try to solve it quickly,” Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti said.Madrid can always say it beat Atletico in the Champions League final last May. But the reality is that Atletico, for so long so inferior to Madrid, has gotten the better of Spanish capital derbies over the past year and a half.Under coach Diego Simeone, Atletico has won three of its last five visits to Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. It all started when Atletico won the Copa del Rey there in 2013, and it has continued with consecutive wins in league play to add to a draw before winning a second leg of the Spanish Super Cup at the Vicente Calderon in August.advertisementSimeone’s vehement protest in that Super Cup win earned him a multi-game ban that he was still serving on Saturday from a glassed-in box where he watched assistant German Burgos keep his team unbeaten through five matches in all competitions this season.”We don’t feel at home here, no. We have a lot of respect for these grounds,” Simeone said. “It’s difficult to win here but we had a good start. Later, I didn’t like how we played because we lost the ball. Moving Koke into midfield gave us more fluidity, Arda going on gave us playmaking, and Griezmann gave us speed.”Tiago took the opener when he slipped inside Karim Benzema’s mark to head in Jorge “Koke” Resurreccion’s corner kick at the near post.Cristiano Ronaldo scored a goal from the penalty spot for Real MadridMadrid looked to Ronaldo to answer, and he showed no sign of his recent injury that kept him sidelined for the past two weeks when he blew by Siqueira, who fouled him in the area to set up his spot kick.Simeone’s ruse of reserving Griezmann as a second-half reinforcement with Turan, who recently recovered from injury, worked to perfection as the attacking players picked apart Madrid’s weary defense.Javier Hernandez made his debut for Madrid after his transfer from Manchester United when he replaced Benzema, but it was Turan who fired the ball just by the post in the 73rd in a warning of what was to come.Arda Turan celebrates after scoring the late goal for Atletico MadridGriezmann played Juanfran Torres free on the right flank for him to cross the ball toward two unmarked Atletico players. Raul Garcia let the ball roll by for the better-positioned Turan to drill beyond the diving Iker Casillas.At Camp Nou, Neymar again started on the bench and had to watch Munir El Haddadi create Barcelona’s best chances until he replaced the young forward in the 62nd minute.But Messi soon played Neymar clear after Sergio Busquets stole the ball for him to score his first goal for Barcelona this season in the 79th.Five minutes later, Messi dribbled to the end line before passing back for Neymar to slot in his second and make Barcelona the only team to have won all three games this season.While Neymar went a long way to convincing coach Luis Enrique he should regain his starting role, Messi continued his impressive start. Of Barcelona’s six goals through three wins, he has scored two and set up three more.”Messi is not only the best in the world for the goals he scores but also because of the assists he makes,” Luis Enrique said. “He is the best in every facet of the attack. I watch him in practice and he does things that you can’t even see on a PlayStation.”Real Sociedad salvaged a 2-2 comeback draw at Celta Vigo when defender Jonny Castro scored an own goal in stoppage time. Fabian Orellana and Joaquin Larrivey put Celta ahead before Imanol Agirretxe pulled one back for Sociedad in the 69th.advertisementMalaga drew 0-0 at home with Levante.last_img read more

However, according to the Bianconeri chief, the 32-year-old forward could start against the Rossoneri.“He can play tomorrow. He needed to recover from mental and physical tiredness.

Bangladesh HC in Islamabad summoned

first_imgBangladesh- PakistanPakistan government has denied all the responsibility for the contents of a video posted on the webpage maintained by the Pakistan high commission in Dhaka, reports news agency UNB.The government of Pakistan also summoned the Bangladesh high commissioner in Islamabad in order to register protest on the use of what they have said “undiplomatic language in a Note Verbal on an incident of obscure origin.”The government of Pakistan also conveyed to the Bangladesh high commissioner in Islamabad Tarik Ahsan that sharing of a video by a third party cannot be attributed to Pakistan high commission in Dhaka, said a press release issued by Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Islamabad.Pakistan has been pursuing a policy of maintaining friendly and cordial ties with Bangladesh, the release added.Pakistan desires to move forward in accordance with the Tripartite Agreement of 1974 wherein the prime minister of Bangladesh desired that the people of Bangladesh should “forget the past and make a fresh start”.On 31 October, Bangladesh government summoned high commissioner of Pakistan in Dhaka Rafiuzzaman Siddiqui and conveyed its strongest protest against the misleading video-footage over Bangladesh’s independence posted on the webpage maintained by the Pakistan High Commission in Dhaka.In a diplomatic note, given by the Bangladeshi government to Siddiqui, it was stated that “the message conveyed in the video that it is not Father of the Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman who declared Bangladesh’s independence which is a blatant lie and sheer fabrication of historical facts.”“The video also mentions that Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman did not want Bangladesh’s independence, but autonomy,” the note added.The government of Bangladesh also sought a formal note of apology for this ill-motivated and misleading video post and calls for an immediate withdrawal of the footage from the Facebook page reportedly maintained by the Pakistan high commission in Dhaka.last_img read more

Study suggests income inequality pushes people to take greater risks

first_img(—A trio of researchers, two with the University of North Carolina and the other with the University of Kentucky, has conducted two kinds of experiments with results suggesting that income inequality in a society can lead those on the bottom to take more risks in hopes of increasing their position. In their paper published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Keith Payne, Jason Hannay and Jazmin Brown-Iannuzz describe their experiments and why they believe their results indicate that rising inequality in the world today could lead to a range of poor outcomes.

Keith Payne et al. Economic inequality increases risk taking, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (2017). DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1616453114AbstractRising income inequality is a global trend. Increased income inequality has been associated with higher rates of crime, greater consumer debt, and poorer health outcomes. The mechanisms linking inequality to poor outcomes among individuals are poorly understood. This research tested a behavioral account linking inequality to individual decision making. In three experiments (n = 811), we found that higher inequality in the outcomes of an economic game led participants to take greater risks to try to achieve higher outcomes. This effect of unequal distributions on risk taking was driven by upward social comparisons. Next, we estimated economic risk taking in daily life using large-scale data from internet searches. Risk taking was higher in states with greater income inequality, an effect driven by inequality at the upper end of the income distribution. Results suggest that inequality may promote poor outcomes, in part, by increasing risky behavior.center_img It is no secret that those on the lower end of the economic spectrum would like to move higher, nor is it a secret that the income inequality gap is growing in many countries across the globe. To learn more about the possible real-world impact of this change the researchers carried out two types of experiments designed to learn more about the behavior of those living below the standard of those at the top.The first type of experiment consisted of asking online volunteers to play a gambling game. Players were shown what they believed to be the average results of previous players—half of the volunteers were told that the best players earned significantly more than other players, while the other half were told the winnings gap was relatively small. Each of the volunteers was then asked how much they felt they needed to win to feel like they had done well and then were given a chance to play by placing bets where they could win real-world money. The betting options were arranged such that the greater the risk, the bigger the potential payoff.In studying how the volunteers performed, the researchers found that those who were told that prior players had won a lot more than other players tended to place riskier bets, hopefully leading to bigger rewards—they also generally expressed a higher need to win than the other players.To learn more about real-world conditions, the researchers studied Google search string data regarding risky behavior and financial gain, such as people searching for information about lottery winning, or other ways to win money. They found that people who lived in states where the income gap was the highest tended to conduct many more such searches.The researchers conclude by suggesting that exposure to high-income lifestyles entices lower-income people to engage in risky behavior in attempting to lift themselves higher.
