PSG – OM, 12 yellow cards, five reds and one goal



Some will be delighted to have attended a “real classic” between PSG and OM, Sunday, September 13 in Paris. An “old-fashioned” confrontation embellished with bloodshed, questionable decisions and finally ended with a shower of boxes and an almost general fight at the end of the match. But more the memory of the PSG-OM of yesteryear, often eaten up by altercations, during and after the meetings, the sad spectacle given by the two clubs to complete this 3e L1 day especially revived the Paris-Marseille war with a rather pathetic scenario, against a background of insults, racism and homophobia.

→ READ. Racism, the word of champions is slowly released

On the sporting front, the victory of Marseille ended a very long wait on the Canebière. A small goal from Florian Thauvin half an hour into the game allowed the Marseillais to defeat the great Parisian rival for the first time in nine years and thus put an end to a sad series of twenty unsuccessful matches against PSG (17 defeats, 3 draws). ” It’s obviously a great joy, I especially want to congratulate the players, rejoiced André Villas-Boas, the Marseille coach. They were huge.

A fight against a background of racism?

Unfortunately, the meeting, preceded by a controversy on social networks after the publication by Parisian supporters of offensive homophobic photos, ended with the start of a general fight which ended, in the last seconds, with three exclusions on the Parisian side (Neymar, Paredes, Kurzawa) and two on the Marseille side (Benedetto, Amavi).

A final altercation at the end of a very tense match which quickly took over the sport. In question, the accusations of racism brought by the Parisian star Neymar against the Spanish defender Alvaro Gonzalez who would have called him ” monkey »On the lawn of the Park. What his opponent denies.

According to isolated images broadcast by the Téléfoot channel, Neymar complained shortly after half an hour of play to the referee, repeating over and over again ” racismo, no! “(” Racism, no! “, In Spanish), pointing to the defender of OM. At the very end of the match, after his exclusion for slapping the back of Alvaro Gonzalez’s head, Neymar chanted ” Look at the racist! That’s why I hit him! »To the fourth referee and in front of a camera, leaving the pitch.

Insults on social networks

The former Barça player also spread on social networks after the match: “ My only regret is that I didn’t hit that c … in the face », Tweeted the Parisian n ° 10 an hour after the meeting. In the process, Alvaro Gonzalez also posted a message on the same social network: “ There is no room for racism. Clean career and with a lot of comrades every day. Sometimes you have to learn to lose and recognize it in the field. Three incredible points today. Go Om. Gracias familia (thank you family) “.

The offensive exchanges between the two opponents then continued on these same social networks. ” There are the TV pictures, things will be judged “, For his part reacted the sports director of the Parisian club, Leonardo, on Téléfoot. ” Neymar was a little pissed off, I hope we have nothing to do (with that). I hope that will not put black on our victory. There is no room for racism in football. It’s a Clasico “, Commented André Villas-Boas. A sadly agitated “classic” which could therefore have repercussions in the coming days. But probably not for good reasons.

US Open: tennis player Dominic Thiem, a strange advent



Almost all the predictions promised him victory. But not like this, not at the end of a non-match, of an improbable game where the fear of losing was fun to jump on one of the fighters then on the other, to the point of grotesque or almost. Dominic Thiem had an appointment with history Sunday, September 13 in the final of the US Open. He honored him, but arriving very late on the court, and after four hours of a meeting far from being up to the challenge.

A historic first

At 27, the Austrian is indeed the first player of the generation born in the 1990s to finally touch the Grail of Grand Slam success. The first to win the kick out of the ogres of the “Big 3” – Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic – since 2016. The first to register a new name on the list of a major tournament on the circuit since the Croatian Marin Cilic in the US Open in 2014. Certainly, circumstances prevent us from really talking about passing the baton: Roger Federer was absent after his knee operation, Rafael Nadal had preferred to ignore a context turned upside down by the coronavirus and Novak Djokovic s’ is excluded on his own from the event by a gesture of temper which disqualified him in the round of 16. But the result is there.

Not the way. History can also remember that Dominic Thiem is the first since 1949 to lift the trophy after being led two sets to nothing. Because for more than an hour and a half, it was Alexander Zverev, his opponent of the day, who reigned supreme in this duel. A shame. The German had arrived at this stage of the competition by distinguishing himself with matches that started badly, an always delicate start that put him in danger in the quarter as well as in the semi-finals. Except that this time, the world N ° 7 landed by conquering, tightening his game by relying on a reinforced concrete service. A domination materialized by two first sets dispatched, 6-2, 6-4, but without great opposition, Dominic Thiem proving to be exceeded, behind on almost all the balls, unable to let go of his blows.

Part undermined by the fear of losing

And then suddenly the matter turned to be quite different. Finished the gamberge for the Austrian, the fear of still missing his chance after his three finals already lost, at Roland Garros against Nadal in 2018 and 2019, in Australia in early 2020 against Djokovic. “I knew that if I lost, I would be 0-4 in the final, and I couldn’t get it out of my head”, he was to explain after the meeting. The switch was made in his noggin, and on the other side of the court in that of his rival, losing in turn his means and his fine certainties. Alexander Zverev or the master of inconstancy.

The 23-year-old is a gifted player, as we know from his career of excellence in junior at the dawn of the 2010s. Since 2016 and his sensational entry into the professional world, the German is struggling to make his talent speak, especially in Grand Slam. This US Open could be a game-changer. But no. After his start without cloud, Alexander Zverev began to multiply unforced errors and double faults (15 in total). Once the situation is reversed, with two sets everywhere, he is yet still two points from the match on several occasions. Too late, no doubt.

Everything was played in the tie-break in an erratic fifth round with an extremely thin level of play, coming down to who will crack the first. It was a paralyzed Alexander Zverev, with no more power in the service, who finally let a Dominic Thiem at the end of the roll physically pick up the victory. The advent of the Austrian has long been heralded. But to follow in the wake of the giants of the “Big 3”, there is still some way to go.

New South Wales (NSW) Premier Gladys Berejiklian on October 12 spoke about the relationship with former Wagga Wagga city congressman Daryl Maguire, who is being investigated for involvement in a scheme to fraudulent public visas Chinese people.

Maguire was forced to resign in the NSW Parliament and as chairman of the NSW Parliamentary Asia Pacific Friendship group, after a 2018 investigation suggested he sought to assist property developers. Chinese real estate in land transactions.

Berejiklian said she had been in a relationship with Maguire since 2015 and called him “the most important person”. However, the NSW Premier said she asked Maguire to resign following the 2018 Independent Commission’s investigation on corruption (ICAC).

Speaking to the media after the October 12 hearing, Berejiklian said she had “made a mistake in her personal life” with a relationship she did not even reveal to her closest family or friends. .

However, Berejiklian insisted she continued to hold the role of Premier of NSW because “did nothing wrong”. “People may have tried to influence me, but they have failed,” Berejiklian said, adding that she stopped contacting Berejiklian since September.

A new ICAC investigation is focusing on Maguire’s pursuit of business deals between 2012 and 2018, often involving “relations with China”.

Maguire is believed to have discussed with Berejiklian about his financial affairs, including his $ 1.5 million in debt, as well as his possibility of earning money from an airport land deal.

Maguire is “an exaggerator”, Berejiklian says, and she often sees him talking about deals as fantastical. The NSW Premier added she is a “woman independent of her own finances”, adding that she “never ignores inappropriate behavior”.

“I am very clear about my public responsibility and understand the difference between private life and public responsibility,” Berejiklian stressed.

The incident of Prime Minister Berejiklian and former MP Maguire took place in the context of conflicting Canberra – Beijing relations because of many problems. China is said to be “on sight” of Australia’s anti-foreign intervention, but Beijing has repeatedly denied interfering with Canberra.

Relations between the two countries are also serious due to many issues such as trade and influence competition in the Pacific region and have increased recently after Canberra called for an independent investigation of the origin of Covid-19.

Two scientists won the 2020 Nobel Prize in Economics


Paul R. Milgrom and Robert B. Wilson are the next two names to be awarded this award, with research in auction theory.

At 16:50 on 12/10 (Hanoi time), the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences announced the 2020 Nobel Prize in Economics to Paul R. Milgrom and Robert B. Wilson. Both have contributed to the improvement of auction theory and the creation of new auction formats.

Paul Milgrom was born in 1948. Robert B. Wilson was born in 1937. Both are American and currently teach at Stanford University (USA).

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said the auction was everywhere. People use auctions to buy and sell things on the Internet. However, each person’s goals are different. Some sellers want to maximize sales. Others use auction as a tool to reduce CO2 emissions. “The auction theory of Paul Milgrom and Robert Wilson is the key to understanding how these goals can be achieved,” the agency said.

Last year, the award went to three scientists Abhijit Banerjee, Esther Duflo and Michael Kremer. They are awarded with research on an empirical approach to global poverty reduction.

Economics is usually the last award awarded each year with the Nobel Prize for Medicine, Physics, Chemistry, Literature and Peace. The Nobel Prize for economics was not part of the original prize structure in the will of the Swedish scientist Alfred Nobel. This award was added in 1968, on the 300th anniversary of the establishment of the Central Bank of Sweden – Sveriges Riksbank, which is also the fund contributor of this award.

However, the process of nominating, selecting and awarding the Nobel Prize in Economics is still similar to other fields. This year’s Nobel Prize winner in Economics will be awarded 10 million Swedish kronor (about 1.1 million USD).

To date, the Nobel Prize in Economics has been awarded 51 times to 84 scientists. The youngest was named at the age of 47, and the oldest was 90. Up to now, only two women have won this award.

Ms. Lam reaffirmed that was the real reason for the speech delay and no meeting was scheduled between her and Mr. Xi in Shenzhen.

Hong Kong is governed by the “One Country, Two Regimes” model, allowing the city to maintain a degree of autonomy and certain rights over mainland China. However, the massive protests lasted for months last year prompted Beijing to step up its regulatory measures.

Just be honest, all your spouse standards can be ignored


The day ended with pouring rains that seemed to ease the heat of the South somewhat.

A rainy day brings people back to memories, where the joys and sorrows are often confusing. Then I secretly hope to have someone to talk to and share my own stories, so that I will no longer feel lonely and alone in this world.

I was born in 1991, currently working and living in Bien Hoa, Dong Nai, a hometown in Thanh Hoa. I am naturally peaceful and cheerful, taking care of people. I hope through a few short lines of confession, luckily find a person to share sadness and happiness together and help each other overcome difficulties in life. Thinking all the standards are just redundant without the sincerity of each person. If we only need to be sincere, everything else we can ignore and build up.

Work and busy life make these quiet moments so rare. The future is still a big question mark that always reminds me to try harder. Sometimes I suddenly think about distant things and let myself into them but then stop, because dreaming of reality is too far away.

Wishing everyone always peace.
