Having a skill means a youth is standing on his feet with a professional approach,” said the education minister of Delhi.He said skill is the future of education and it is important to impart skill education.

a day ago​Arsenal hero Petit: Nothing has changed since Wenger left

first_img​Arsenal hero Petit: Nothing has changed since Wenger leftby Freddie Taylora day agoSend to a friendShare the loveArsenal legend Emmanuel Petit does not see any differences between the end of Arsene Wenger’s time at the club and their performances now.Unai Emery has received time and backing at the club, as he is now into his second season as manager.But their performances and results are no better than what Wenger was achieving, and Emery arguably has a more balanced squad at his disposal.Petit told reporters: “I can understand why many Arsenal supporters are losing patience with Unai Emery.”As a manager he has a bad record away from home – not just with Arsenal, but also while he was in Spain.”Arsenal showed no character and it p***es me off because it has been the case so many times away from home.”The starting XI he picked against Sheffield United was strange.”It’s difficult after an international break when you have to play teams that don’t have as many players involved in the international fixtures.”But you know what to expect when you go to Bramall Lane – you know the qualities of the Sheffield United team.”They fight, especially in front of their home crowd, and they get balls into the box and put pressure on at set pieces.”That’s what they did against Liverpool and Chelsea.”But more importantly they didn’t show any technical quality on the pitch.”They gave away so many simple balls and had no inspiration, imagination or creativity.”They looked so heavy. This isn’t Arsenal – you need to take the ball and show what you’ve got.”But I haven’t seen that in years. Nothing has changed since Arsène Wenger left.” About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Reds Indians weeks in review

Cincinnati RedsJust like that, The Reds are above .500 and second in the National League Central behind the division-leading Cardinals.The Reds began the week hosting a three-game series against the Mets in which every game was decided by one run in the ninth inning or later.The Reds won the first game thanks to Laynce Nix’s pinch-hit home run in the eleventh inning in the first game off of Manny Acosta. Francisco Cordero lost the second game for the Reds after allowing a solo shot from Rod Barajas, breaking a 4-4 tie going into the ninth inning. Orlando Cabrera helped the Reds win the series with a leadoff home run in the 10th inning, which gave the Reds their ninth win in the last at bat.The Reds had a day off Thursday before the Cubs came to town.Unlike the series with the Mets, the series with the Cubs was a lot more lopsided.The Cubs took it to the Reds in the first game behind touted-rookie Starlin Castro’s 6 RBIs in his first-ever game. The Reds returned the favor in the second game with a barrage of late-inning runs as the Reds took a seventh inning 3-2, and ended up winning the game 14-2. Mike Leake pitched a gem in the third game, recording his third win and second series win of the week for the Reds.Stud: Joey Votto. After this week Joey Votto leads the team (excluding players who have not had enough at-bats) in batting average, home runs, RBI and on-base percentage. Dud: Homer Bailey. After getting beat up in his last start against the Cubs, Bailey is 0-2 with a 7.24 ERA this season.Next Week: The Reds will begin the week trying to get their first win against the Pirates this season in a three-game series at Pittsburgh, and then will come back home to host the Cardinals in another three-game series. Cleveland IndiansDespite returning to the friendly confines of Progressive Field, the Indians struggled through the past week, winning only one game, 7-4 against the Detroit Tigers Sunday.The visiting Toronto Blue Jays won all three games against Cleveland, including Wednesday when the Blue Jays scored three runs in the ninth inning off Indians’ closer Chris Perez. The Indians are at 11-18, fourth in the American League Central, and are 8.5 games back of the division-leading Minnesota Twins.Stud: Travis Hafner. The player known as ‘Pronk’ came into the week hitting only .189 in 2010. But over the last few games, Hafner’s batting average has increased to .244, and he had an RBI in three consecutive games.Dud: Jake Westbrook. Back from Tommy John surgery (elbow ligament replacement surgery), which kept him from pitching for more than a year, Westbrook is still looking for his first win as the team’s ace. Tuesday, his tough start continued, as he didn’t get past the fourth inning in an 8-5 loss to Toronto.Up Next: The Indians begin an eight-game road trip Tuesday against Kansas City and will travel to Baltimore Friday for a three-game series with the Orioles. read more

Zidane taking nothing for granted

first_imgReal Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is adamant that their approach against Juventus will not change, despite their comfortable 3-0 advantageLast season’s Champions League winners defeated the Serie A leaders 3-0 at Turin for the first leg of their quarter-final clash and should they managed to score one goal in the return leg on Wednesday, then Juventus will have to score at least five goals to stand any chance of progressing.But Zidane is refusing to relax and has vowed that there will no changes in their approach with Real currently chasing an unprecedented third consecutive Champions League title.Franck Ribery, FiorentinaFiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.“Our approach will not change for tomorrow’s match despite the result in Turin, we need to play another great match.

New Cadillac Escalade could pack Camaro ZL1s 650hp V8 report says

first_img 2020 Cadillac XT6 first drive: Sometimes ‘more’ is more Now playing: Watch this: Review • 2019 Cadillac Escalade review: Large, luxurious and long in the tooth Enlarge ImageA Cadillac Escalade that sings the song of its people from three blocks down would be pretty gnarly. Let’s hope the report is accurate. Antuan Goodwin/Roadshow Cadillac’s supercharged LT4 V8 is a sweetheart, slapping the ever-loving heck out drivers with gobs of horsepower and torque — and, of course, a raucous engine note to go along with it. And, if a new report turns out to be true, it could also appear in something a little bit bigger.Cadillac is working on a muscled-up variant of the next-generation Escalade, Muscle Cars and Trucks reports, citing sources with knowledge of the project. Cadillac did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but automakers routinely decline to discuss products ahead of schedule, and Cadillac has not talked much about its new Escalade yet.While the sources didn’t give MC&T explicit confirmation of the powertrain, they apparently hinted at the aforementioned LT4, which puts out 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque in its hottest iteration. The V8 in question has lived in only three cars thus far: the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (C7) and the Cadillac CTS-V.According to the report, the idea of a souped-up Escalade has been a long time coming. Sources told MC&T that the idea originally came from former CEO Johan de Nysschen, surviving the subsequent regime change. The sources also claimed that the project was supposed to happen on the current Escalade, but it was since pushed back to the next generation, which is believed to debut next year, although the “powerhouse” variant will likely debut well after the initial trims do.Cadillac has shied away from giving its SUVs powerful trims, but the market is more than ready for it. Look to BMW’s M vehicles or Mercedes-Benz’s AMG line for a multitude of examples on how to build a fast SUV correctly. If Cadillac were to follow through with this idea, it would give the automaker an advantage over its closest competitor, the Lincoln Navigator, which also lacks a crazy-powerful version. Cadillac remains positioned as GM’s premier marque, and many luxury buyers want a bit more get-up-and-go with their vehicles these days, so a pavement-twisting Escalade would fit that bill quite nicely. 31 Photos More about 2019 Cadillac Escalade Platinum 1 Get reacquainted with the 2019 Cadillac Escalade ESV Platinum Comment Share your voice More From Roadshow 2019 Cadillac Escalade review: Large, luxurious and long in the tooth 2:48 2018 Cadillac CT6 Plug-In: Drive softly and carry a big battery 5 things you need to know about the 2019 Cadillac Escalade Tags Cadillac SUVs Future Cars Performance Cars Cadillaclast_img read more
