The United States entered Wednesday’s friendly against world powerhouse Brazil looking to extend their 5 match winning streak. Unfortunately that momentum, as well as 67,619 screaming fans packed into FedEx Field in Landover, MD, were not enough to stop Brazil from claiming victory 4-1.The Brazilian national team came into yesterday’s game led by Neymar, hailed by former national team member and soccer icon Pele as the next great Brazilian futbol star. First half goals from Neymar and Thiago Silva gave Brazil a lead that they would never surrender.According to the Washington Post, USA head coach Juergen Klinsmann praised his team’s resilience but felt that they played without a lot of tenacity.“We need to get nastier, maybe a little bit still too naïve, maybe we don’t want to hurt people. We have to step on their toes more, get them more frustrated.”Team USA Forward Herculez Gomez, who scored the only goal for the U.S., noticed how the game changed when his team began to force the issue against the respected Brazilians.“Sometimes you see Brazil on the calendar and you go in with a lot of respect for their players, but they are just like us,” he said. “They bleed, they hurt, so you’ve got to get after it. You saw in the second half when we pressed and imposed our game, they were the ones on their heels, they were the ones trying to hit us, they were the ones sweating and battling and fighting to track back.”The U.S. had ample opportunities to score during the second half but failed to rally from their deficit. The crowd of 67,619 was the largest crowd to watch a soccer game in the Washington area.

Delroy Chuck, says the Ministry is looking to table the Child Diversion Bill in Parliament in January 2018. He said the Bill will go to Cabinet in short order for approval. The Minister was speaking at a press conference at his Constant Spring Road offices in St. Andrew on December 13. The Bill aims to address the needs of children involved in violent incidents, providing some alternative for them outside of the formal justice system.Turning to other legislative measures, Minister Chuck cited steps being taken to amend the law to enable a single judge adjudicating cases of human trafficking. He gave assurance that all “the Ministry’s (legislative) Bills are being dealt with expeditiously”. As it relates to the establishment of the Human Rights Institute, he said that “this is actively under consideration and will be dealt with in the early part of next year”.Meanwhile, Mr. Chuck said the Ministry is aiming to complete the payment of compensation to victims of the 2010 security forces operation in West Kingston by the end of the year. The Government has approved payment of approximately $200 million to aggrieved persons.Minister Chuck said that about 418 payments have been approved, which are to be deposited to bank accounts once the requisite documentations are completed and the taxpayer registration number and identifications are provided.Persons are being asked to visit Restorative Justice centres in Tivoli Gardens and Denham Town, which “will be utilized to ensure beneficiaries get their compensation on time”.

And the U.S. said Mexico is also taking “decisive action to dismantle human smuggling and trafficking organizations as well as their illicit financial and transportation networks.”Trump’s decision marked a change in tone from earlier Friday, when his spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters in Ireland before Trump took off: “Our position has not changed. The tariffs are going forward as of Monday.” Trump has often said unpredictability helps him negotiate.The 5% tax on all Mexican goods , which would increase every month up to 25% under Trump’s plan, would have had enormous economic implications for both countries. Americans bought $378 billion worth of Mexican imports last year, led by cars and auto parts. Many members of Trump’s Republican Party and business allies had urged him to reconsider — or at least postpone actually implementing the tariffs as talks continue — citing the potential harm to American consumers and manufactures.U.S. and Mexican officials met for more than 10 hours Friday during a third day of talks at the U.S. State Department trying to hash out a deal that would satisfy Trump’s demand that Mexico dramatically increase its efforts to crack down on migrants.The talks were said to be focused, in part, on attempting to reach a compromise on changes that would make it harder for migrants who pass through Mexico from other countries to claim asylum in the U.S., those monitoring the situation said. Mexico has opposed such a change but appeared open to considering a potential compromise that could include exceptions or waivers for different types of cases.The joint declaration, however makes no mention of the issue.Trump in recent months has embraced tariffs as a political tool he can use to force countries to comply with his demands — in this case on his signature issue of immigration. And he had appeared poised earlier Friday to invoke an emergency declaration that would allow him to put the tariffs into effect if that was his final decision, according to people monitoring the talks.“If negotiations continue to go well,” Trump “can turn that off at some point over the weekend,” Marc Short, Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff, told reporters earlier in the day.Talks had gotten off to a shaky start Wednesday, as the U.S. once again pressed Mexico to step up enforcement on its southern border with Guatemala and to enter into a “safe third country agreement” overhauling its asylum system. But as talks progressed Thursday, U.S. officials began to grow more optimistic, with Short reporting Mexican “receptivity” to potential asylum changes.In Mexico, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador held out hope during his daily news conference that a deal could be reached before Monday’s deadline.Mexican Foreign Secretary Marcelo Ebrard, who said Thursday his country had agreed to deploy 6,000 National Guard troops to its border with Guatemala, tweeted the news late Friday that there would be no “tariff application on Monday.”“Thanks to all the people who have supported us by realizing the greatness of Mexico,” he wrote.López Obrador also tweeted. “Thanks to the support of all Mexicans, the imposition of tariffs on Mexican products exported to the USA has been avoided,” he said, calling for a gathering to celebrate in Tijuana Saturday.Beyond Trump and several White House advisers, few in his administration had believed the tariffs were a good idea, according to officials familiar with internal deliberations. Those people had worried about the negative economic consequences for Americans and argued that tariffs — which would likely spark retaliatory taxes on U.S. exports — would also hurt the administration politically.Republicans in Congress had also warned the White House that they were ready to stand up to the president to try to block his tariffs, which they worried would spike costs to U.S. consumers, harm the economy and imperil a major pending U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade deal .

It is said that life is an abstract art, and it is up to the artist to draw meanings out of it.For Sangeeta Gupta, who feels that art cannot thrive unless it is shared – it is a means to liberate herself through colours as her tools, invoking the infinite and the five elements as her source of inspiration.With the idea of sharing art with others, she recently opened an art gallery at Safdarjung Enclave, New Delhi under the ambit of Prithvi fine art and cultural centre – a registered society based in the heart of Delhi since 2011 with the objective to promote art, literature and music of India.

As a painter, I have been composing shades of colours that dissolve nature into forms and formlessness and subsequently enter the region of nothingness. One may not be endowed with the knowledge of how to go beyond this experience.””It begins suddenly at an empty space, generates energy, goes on clubbing with opposite forces and finally passes beyond time. I have attempted to identify space at every nook and corner of the landscape, discovering and rediscovering the infinite existence of nothingness. My urge to conceive the truth of our time drives me sometimes to probe the elusive realms of human existence,” she adds.The artist, who is a resident of Delhi, has held 32 solo shows, authored 14 books and made seven documentary films.
