Hoy se dio a conocer el nuevo balón de Adidas que será protagonista en el Mundial de Qatar🇶🇦2022

✍️ En este hilo te dejo toda la información sobre el balón en sí, y cómo será su presentación oficial. Image
⚽️ Lo mas importante:

El nombre que recibe es “Al Rihla”, que significa “El viaje” en árabe. La inspiración de su diseño proviene de la cultura, la arquitectura, las embarcaciones icónicas y la bandera de Qatar.🇶🇦 Image
⚽️ Es el 14º balón consecutivo que @adidasfootball ha creado para la Copa Mundial de la FIFA y está diseñado para adaptarse a las velocidades más altas del deporte actual, ya que viaja más rápido en el aire que cualquiera de los demás balones anteriores.🔝 Image

One of the cheaper options, the third cheapest to be precise, in #Qatar for #FifaWorldCup, is $5500 for a week

We spent half that in #SouthAfrica, #Brazil & #Russia for 3 weeks each

Also only one portal to access acco, no hotel sites etc

@FIFAWorldCup @QatarEmb_London @qatar Image
Unlike any of the previous 6 #WorldCup I've attended, this is by far the most painful, most expensive one already

The govt needs to step in to provide more, cheaper accommodation options right away

Also, the sites aren't functioning well
We got tickets in the morning but neither the Hayya site or the Accommodation site recognise the ticket application or the individual ticket numbers yet

In #Russia it was nearly instantaneously updated

Finally apartment options don't mention public transport links 😳

आज आपण पाकिस्तानकडून सपशेल पराभूत झालो.

काहीच, अगदी काहीच हरकत नाही त्यात!
तो खेळ आहे, इतकी वर्षे #WorldCup मध्ये आम्ही त्यांना हरवलं, आज त्यांनी आम्हांला!

पण #BangladeshHinduGenocide आणि अफगाणिस्तान, पाकिस्तान मधल्या #हिंदूनरसंहार बाबत शोक व्यक्त करण्याऐवजी आज भारतीय संघ -
१/४
#BlackLivesMatter साठी गुडघ्यावर बसून 'गोऱ्यांच्या चुकीबाबत आम्ही खेद व्यक्त करतो' आविर्भावात झुकला!
का?
फक्त Black Lives Matter करतात का?
#HinduLivesMatter करत नाहीत?
हिंदूंमध्ये जीव नसतो?
हिंदू स्त्रियांवरील अत्याचार कृष्णवर्णीय स्त्रियांवरील अन्यायापेक्षा कमी पाशवी आहेत क?

सातासमुद्रापार गोऱ्यांच्या विकृत मानसिकतेसाठी आम्ही का स्वतःला पापी समजावं?
पाक-तालिबान-बांगलादेशी शांतिप्रिय समुदायाकडून जेंव्हा हिंदू मारले जातात, तेंव्हा त्या शांतिप्रिय समुदायाचे भारतीय नागरिक तोंडातून ब्र सुद्धा काढत नाहीत.

मग आमचे विकसित हिंदू कणे का नाही ताठ राहू शकत?

A few days ago #LFGthemovie was released. This movie shows us the process of the #EqualPay lawsuit that the @USWNT encounter against @ussoccer
It explains how much it takes to do something like this.
Here s a #Thread to explain what happened
In March 2019 During the #USWNT camps the captains did do a secret meeting with the team and they proposed to make a lawsuit against their federation for Equalpay. That's how it started and on the 8th of March 2019 they released a statement.
They are asking for #EqualPay and also
Equal opportunities with better marketing,more training resources etc.
And the facts are surreal:
So the #USWNT get paid 0$ for advancing in the #WorldCup even if they make it to the Semi finals
They don't take any charters and the hostels are nothing compared to the men.

🕺 To celebrate #2YearsToGo until the Qatar 2022 final, let's look back at some memorable #WorldCup finals through the years, shall we?

📽 We start in 1950 when @Uruguay won the 'Maracanazo' 🏆✨

🇺🇾 Take it away, @DiegoLugano

🎞 Let's head to 1954 and 'The Miracle of Bern'

🇩🇪 West Germany defeated Hungary and pulled off one of the biggest upsets in #WorldCup history, with a little help from their boots 👟

🎥 4 years later a guy called @Pele became the youngest goalscorer in a World Cup final (17 years and 249 days)

🇧🇷 Brazil beat Sweden 5-2 at Rasunda Stadium in Solna to win their first #WorldCup trophy 🏆

[A Thread]

Although we had planned for an article on our website on this topic in near future but we are making a thread as a Tribute to the legend #DiegoMaradona and his impact on @sscnapoli and #Naples (even though words may not be enough to explain his impact) (1/n)
#DiegoMaradona joined @sscnapoli for a then world record fee from @FCBarcelona in 1984. Swapping the glamour of Barcelona with one of the poorest cities, not only in Italy but in Europe was a decision lamented by many (2/n)
#Maradona's arrival at the San Paolo in 1984 from #FCBarcelona can be seen as the catalyst for Napoli's ultimate success, but it took the club 3 years to win laurels. Diego was the the most important piece of that puzzle (3/n)

PDP-Mehbooba Mufti. A #Thread

The latest remarks by PDP claiming to fight #abrogation of #Article370 comes to no surprise. The party helmed by Ms Mehbooba #Mufti has a long history of peddling controversies in #Kashmir to gain political traction
(1/19) Image
#PDP was founded in 1998 Late #Mufti Mohammed Sayeed. Interestingly he was the state's Home Minister when the fateful abduction of Rubaiya Sayeed(his daughter)took place in 1989. Many believes this was the turning point in #Kashmir's history which propelled it into chaos
(2/19) Image
PDP Government’s blunders in #BhuranWani incident in 2016 saw a massive breakdown of governance in the history #Kashmir second only to 1989’s unrest.
It marked the revival of #Separatism & #terrorism, which had remarkably waned in the whole of Kashmir, between..

🇺🇸 #FIFAWWC/ El #FutbolFemenino estadounidense se le planta a #Trump de la mano de @mPinoe, quien dice: "No voy a ir a la maldita Casa Blanca. No, no voy a ir a la Casa Blanca. No vamos a ser invitadas, lo dudo"

#EEUU #Rapinoe #soccer #WorldCup
#Trump no se calló y hoy le respondió: "Megan debe ganar primero antes de hablar. Aún no hemos invitado a Megan o al equipo, pero estoy invitándolas ahora. Megan nunca debe faltar al respeto a nuestro país, la Casa Blanca o nuestra bandera
La pelea viene de antes, cuando #Trump le dijo que no era apropiado que no cantase el himno, quien no lo hacía como protesta contra la brutalidad y el racismo policial. Primero se arrodillaba, como Colin Kaepernick, pero frente a una regla que lo prohibió, cambio al silencio. Image

Trying to understand the #Magabomber 's 2 twitter accounts @hardrock2016 & @hardrockintlent. They just seem plain bizzarre. I mean i suppose u have to be quite off in the head to think these actions were somehow reasonable and sane. There is alot to unpack in this archived data.
#Magabomber guy used 3 different hashtags in total for both accnts & very infrequently. Both @robreiner & @RealRonHoward show up in his Twitter archives so I would assume they have been contacted. Looks like the Meme was his mode of communication

Watching last night's recap of the Trump-Putin summit on Russia's most popular TV talk show. The episode begins with talk of "aggressive" American journalists "who were all about the past," and praising Russian journalists, "who were all about the future."
The host, Vladimir Soloviev, says Melania Trump "was absolutely ecstatic to get the ball from the #WorldCup, which was a very subtle move by President Putin."
And here's @anniekarni in the frame of Kremlin TV.

Who do you want to win? #WorldCup
I'm all in for Croatia, though France is a much better team IMO.
First time since 1962 that a small nation or one without a rich footballing history makes it to the #WorldCup final. Since then it's always been the usual suspects.

Why Croatia winning the World Cup would mark the most glorious banter era in football history. (Thread) #cro
Let's start on a high note. Croatia travel to Wembley with nothing to play for while England need just a draw to qualify for Euro 2008. A Scott Carson howler later and Croatia win 3-2 and knock England out anyway.
After an excellent display at Wembley, Luka Modric joins Tottenham and transfers a percentage of the transfer fee to a Dinamo Zagreb director called Zdravko Mamic. Everything that happens next started here.

It’s a tough call. France are our neighbours and Croatia are the underdogs.

1/ Semi-final England vs Croatian @FIFAWorldCup game about to begin. Teams warming up with pre-game practice drills are habit routines that brings the athletes closer to flow, that optimal state of consciousness & the source code of ultimate performance. #WorldCup #Flow #Habits
2/ Flow is a peak state where we both feel our best and perform our best, pretty much required to compete at the World Cup level. I take the pregame practice drill concept and put it to use on my day. A routine of morning habits are small wins that create the conditions for flow.
3/ Break the pre-game concept down to small win habit routines to prepare for a speaking engagement or an important meeting… or even date night 😉 wherever you want to feel your best and perform your best. #flow #habits

A quiet day on the Brexit front, so let's think about the coming days:

1/
Today, assuming no resignations, it's about May getting some +ve support from EU leaders at #NATOSummit

2/
(I assume no resignations, as #WorldCup will drown any other story for next 24hrs, plus we seem to have moved from Cabinet to P'y posts)
