first_imgEusebio Di Francesco rued Roma’s inexperience to pick the right ball after finding their rhythm in the 1-0 loss to JuventusEusebio’s men were beaten in Turin by a Mario Mandzukic header courtesy of a  Mattia De Sciglio’s cross. But the Italian manager claimed his men were nervous in the encounter“We were too nervous and insecure in the first half, but in the second we accepted the duels and took control of the ball,” the Coach told Football Italia via DAZN.“We had some good forward moves and just lacked the final ball. The difference between us and them is that Juve had shots on goal. I remain happy with the reaction that the team showed.Chris Smalling open to a permanent AS Roma deal Andrew Smyth – September 6, 2019 Chris Smalling can “definitely see a longer-term future” for himself at AS Roma should things work out on his loan spell from Manchester United.“I wanted to create more density in the midfield, giving Aleksandar Kolarov the chance to start moves from the back. We wanted a stronger physical impact, but we did well in some moments and less well in others.“The positives we take from this match are the attitude and the desire to play one-against-one all over the pitch. We just didn’t finish off our chances, but keeping Juve pinned back in their own half is no mean feat. Unfortunately, we lack the nous and experience to pick the right ball.”Patrik Schick was again utterly ineffective in attack, failing to make any real impact.“We all expect more. It was not easy for him today, but we do expect him to have more shots on goal. In some situations, he could’ve attacked the space better.”last_img read more

first_imgPeople eat street food in Dhaka on 18 April, 2019. Photo: Jung Da-minBangladesh is a very dynamic country with one of the world’s highest population densities of 1,015 per square kilometre for its 165 million people.The country’s largest city and capital Dhaka is a diverse city of vibrant culture, with thousands of Bangladeshi businesses and international corporations contributing to migration and population growth.The streets in Dhaka are always filled with cars and people passing by, giving the impression the city itself is always in motion.The heat of the capital does not turn off even at night, with many people still eating out, sitting and talking to each other on the streets.Visiting the dynamic city during the Bangladesh government’s week-long “Visit Bangladesh” tour programme for a group of journalists, academics and envoys in mid-April, this reporter found a chance for an interesting night out with a local friend, according to The Korea Times.The streets of Dhaka at night, lit with neon signs and lights from high buildings, were much darker compared to the bright streets of Seoul, but they were still lively with people moving around.People sit and talk outside in a street in Dhaka on 18 April, 2019.

Photo: Jung Da-minAmong the various street foods, this reporter tried out a few different kinds: jhalmuri, chotpoti, fuchka, achars and coconut water.The taste of jhalmuri was not so unfamiliar but rather similar to that of ramen ― an instant noodle snack with spicy sauce easily found in Seoul.The popular Bangalee street food loved by people of all age groups was made with puffed rice, onions and green chilli, the Korean Times says.Chotpoti is one of the most popular street foods in Bangladesh made with peas, potatoes, chopped boiled eggs, cucumber, red onions and other vegetables with panipuri shells stuffed with them and tamarind paste and chaat masala on top.Fuchka is a slightly more condensed version of chotpoti and they usually are served together on one plate.The combination of crispy panipuri shells and mushy ingredients inside adds to the fun of eating, giving a unique mouthfeel.Achars are Bangladesh-style pickles made with different kinds of vegetables and fruit ― normally sour fruit ― mixed together and seasoned in oil.The one this reporter tried with local boiled rice was sweet and sour, similar to South Korean pickled plums.It is not too difficult to find coconut water in convenience stores in South Korea, but on the streets of Dhaka, you will get to drink from the coconut itself.As the coconuts are loaded at vendors in streets they are not as cool as those from a refrigerator, but are sweet enough to fill you with energy.last_img read more

first_imgDescribing the exhibition as ‘An artistic exploration of mundane’, Exhibit 320 brings together seven artistes for Delineating Memories that kicked off last Friday (18 July). The exhibition will be on till 5 August. Exhibit 32O showcases artistes that are placed within complex frameworks of time, place, society, history, art and culture, entering into a continuous dialogue to demystify these systems they inhabit. They travel  through time, switch roles and perspectives, and delineate their discoveries  like a map from memory.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Simultaneously indulging into insightful and retrospective journeys to learn  and comprehend, give way to endless curiosity and complexity of thought. This is reflected in the play of material, artifacts, deconstruction of concepts  and creation of myriad forms. These maps range from representations of vernacular visual culture, narrative personal histories, exploration of  physical spaces, to poetic dialogues. This exhibition underlines an almost meditative practice employed by each artiste in order to discern the value of personal experiences, visual culture and physical spaces. Participating artistes are – Simrin Mehra Agarwal (India), Gazi Nafis Ahmed (Bangaldesh), Noorali Chagani (Pakistan), Simeen Farhat (Pakistan), Sharmishta Kar (India), Martand Khosla (India) and M Pravat (India).WHEN: On till 5 August, 10:30 am – 6:30 pm (Sunday closed)WHERE: Exhibit 320, F-320, Lado Sarailast_img read more
