Latest: Chelsea 1 Steaua Bucharest 0

first_imgChelsea took an early lead in their final Champions League group match courtesy of Daniel Georgievski’s 10th-minute own goal.Willian’s right-wing corner was headed towards goal by Oscar and with Demba Ba looking to apply the finishing touch, an under-pressure Georgievski appeared to knock the ball in.Already through to the knockout stage and knowing a victory would guarantee they progress as Group E winners, the Blues had made a strong start.David Luiz miscued after being found unmarked by Willian’s corner and Oscar fired wide from the edge of the penalty area before the opener.Luiz, who has been nursing a knee problem, was recalled to the side along with Ashley Cole – the duo’s first appearance since last month’s defeat at Newcastle.Oscar, lively in the opening 20 minutes, also returned after shaking off an ankle knock.The home side have been well on top but Steaua Bucharest should have equalised when Gabriel Iancu sneaked in behind John Terry and had only keeper Mark Schwarzer to beat but dragged his shot horribly wide.Chelsea: Schwarzer; Ivanovic, Luiz, Terry, Cole; Mikel, Lampard; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Ba.Subs: Cech, Cahill, Ramires, De Bruyne, Mata, Schurrle, Torres.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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

We look at athletes and leaders and musicians and say they are “great,” but what do we really mean? It has something to do with skill and competence, but there’s more to it than that. It has to do with the character that has enabled that person to achieve the things they have, to attain levels of expertise or knowledge or ability that few others reach. On this episode Lewis Howes talks with Anthony about what it means to be great and what it takes to get there. You won’t hear a better conversation on the subject of greatness, so be sure you set aside the time to listen to this one.Lewis Howes on What Is Greatness and How to Be Great – on this episodeClick To TweetBecoming a great speaker, entrepreneur, and coach.Lewis Howes was a 20-something year old when he walked into an Ohio Toastmasters group where he first met Anthony Iannarino. It was there that Anthony saw Lewis mature into a truly powerful speaker who was aiming at the top – at greatness. The two of them quickly became friends and each think deeply about the subject of greatness – that’s why this conversation is so enjoyable. You’ll hear Lewis talk about his own pursuit of greatness as a speaker, business leader, coach, and athlete – and you’ll get to hear his thoughts on what truly makes a person great in any discipline.What does it take to achieve greatness?When asked the question Lewis Howes gives a few responses. First, in order to achieve greatness Lewis believes that you have to believe that you are worthy to reach the point of being called “great.” If you’re not able to believe that you deserve it you’ll likely never be able to accomplish it – and even if you do, you won’t believe you have. But more so, it has to do with belief in your ability to reach a point of greatness at all.

How would YOU define it?Naturally, every discipline or area has its own particulars as to what makes someone “great” in the field of competitors or participants. For that reason alone “greatness” cannot be defined by a set of acquired skills. It has more to do with the inner person, the character, discipline, and mindset they bring to the things they do.

Supreme Court stays Bombay High Court order to file FIR against Dhananjay Munde

first_imgThe Supreme Court on Friday stayed a Bombay High Court order directing registration of a First Information Report against Maharashtra MLC and NCP leader Dhananjay Munde in an alleged illegal purchase of government land case.A Vacation Bench of Justices Ajay Rastogi and Surya Kant also issued notices to the Maharashtra government and the complainant in the case, Rajabhau Phad.During the hearing, the Bench queried, “what was the exceptional feature in the case” that led the High Court to order the registration of the FIR.In his petition, Mr. Munde, sought stay of the High Court order that directed the police to file a case against him for allegedly grabbing land at Pus village, Ambajogai taluk, Beed district belonging to government.The top court, however, declined to go into the merits of the case as of now.Earlier in the morning, the Beed police lodged a case of cheating and forgery against Mr. Dhananjay Munde and 14 others in the case.An FIR under Sections 420 (cheating), 465 (forgery), 468 (forgery for the purpose of cheating), 464 (false document) and 471 (using as genuine a forged document) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) was lodged against Mr. Munde and the others at the Bardapur police station.The police action follows a June 11 order of the Aurangabad Bench of the Bombay High Court, directing an FIR to be registered against Mr. Munde, who is Leader of Opposition (LoP) in the Maharashtra Legislative Council (MLC), within four days of the court order.The court had passed the directive on a petition filed by Mr. Phad, who had accused the NCP leader of illegally purchasing land for his Jagmitra sugar factory in Beed district.According to Mr. Phad’s petition, the disputed plot of land at Pus village in Beed’s Ambejogai tehsil belonged to the State government and was given to the Belkhandi Math in Beed as a ‘gift’ to its chief priest or mahant, Ranit Giri.In 2012, Mr. Munde had purchased the 17-acre plot from Mr. Giri’s heirs by applying for non-agricultural status of the land.The petitioner had challenged the purchase, stating that as the land originally belonged to the government, it could not be sold to anybody.Stressing that the land for the Jagmitra Sugar Mills was purchased “in strict accordance to rules,” Mr. Munde has refuted the allegations against him, stating that “misleading information” was presented against him in the court.He has alleged that Mr. Phad’s complaint against him smacked of “political vendetta.”The NCP leader said that Mr. Phad, who is the son-in-law of scam-tainted businessman Ratnakar Gutte, was attempting to frame him as he had exposed the farm loan fraud allegedly committed by Mr. Gutte, a prominent sugar baron from the Marathwada region considered to be close to the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party.Mr. Munde’s lawyers have said that there was no mention of the land belonging to the government at the time of the purchase in 2012.This is not the first time the NCP leader has found himself in a soup over shadowy dealings.In October 2013, the Beed District Central Co-operative Bank had lodged a complaint pertaining to fraudulent behaviour against Mr. Munde and 15 others at the Parli police station in Beed.The BDCC had alleged Mr. Munde, as chairman and director of the Parli-based Jagmitra Co-operative Cotton Ginning and Pressing Mill, had taken loans from the bank amounting to ₹11.79 crore between 2003 and 2011 and had failed to repay them. Despite the lodging of an FIR and the filing of a charge sheet against the NCP leader, a local court had stayed Mr. Munde’s arrest.last_img read more
