Duo make their debuts for QPR as Redknapp’s men beat Southend

first_imgRichard Dunne and Karl Henry made their debuts as QPR limbered up for the new season with a 3-1 win at Southend.Andy Johnson, Stephane Mbia and Nedum Onuoha scored Rangers’ goals and Junior Hoilett was unlucky not to also find the net.Johnson, who has looked sharp since returning from a long-term knee injury, finished well after Shaun Wright-Phillips’ poor pass ended up ricocheting into the striker’s path.Southend were level at the break courtesy of Clint Hill’s own goal but Mbia, on as a half-time substitute along with Dunne, headed home at the far post soon after the restart.Onuoha, who was impressive at centre-back, sealed Rangers’ win when he netted from Hoilett’s right-wing corner.The likes of Alejandro Faurlin, Ji-sung Park and Jermaine Jenas, who did not feature at Roots Hall, are due to play in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Leyton Orient on Saturday.Midfielder Gary O’Neil, a free agent after leaving West Ham, may also play ahead of a possible move to Rangers.QPR: Green; Simpson, Onuoha, Hill, Yun (Dunne 45); Wright-Phillips, Henry (Sutherland 68), Granero (Mbia 45), Hoillett; Zamora, Johnson.

No Friend of Mine: Friendster to Delete Personal Data by End of May

first_imgThe Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Tags:#social networks#web Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Friendster, one of the original players in the social networking arena, is changing the nature of its business to focus more on games and entertainment. Hence, all profile data that Friendster has been saving over the years will be deleted as of May 31, 2011, according to reports.Want to save some personal history?

In the Friendster help forum the company outlines how to use the Friendster Exporter.“If you do not wish to keep all this history or information, then you do not need to do anything. Whether you use the Exporter or not, your Friendster account will not be deleted. Your list of friends will be preserved, along with your basic profile information. Your wallet and games details will also remain unchanged,” the company wrote.The Exporter tool will download your information as a .zip file or you can send your photos to Flickr, Photobucket or Multiply. Friendster was acquired for $40 million in 2009 by MOL Global. The company is the owner of a payment service provider that powers mostly game payments in Southeast Asia. The move to more online gaming and entertainment makes more sense for MOL Global than archiving a stagnant social network.Friendster was not a service whose idea was “ahead of its time.” Friendster was just first. It was specifically of its time and, in retrospect to what has come afterward, not particularly refined. It was never a juggernaut even if it did have a substantial following.

Why You Should Not Offer Advice To Your 23 Year Old Self

first_img Essential Reading! Get my first book: The Only Sale Guide You’ll Ever Need “The USA Today bestseller by the star sales speaker and author of The Sales Blog that reveals how all salespeople can attain huge sales success through strategies backed by extensive research and experience.” Buy Now The most frequent question podcast hosts ask me is, “If you could back and offer your twenty-something-year-old self some advice, what would you tell him?” I used to try to answer this question, but I was never satisfied with my answers. Mostly I was trying to be polite and say something that might help someone else, which is the purpose of the exercise.Here is why you should not want to go back and offer advice to your twenty-something-year-old self.Being Grateful for Your PathAll the good and bad decisions you made brought you to this point. All the good things and bad things that happened to you were all part of that path. Whoever you are now is the result of all of your experiences. If you are truly grateful, you have to be thankful for the path that brought you here.As much as you might have liked to avoid some of the negative experiences and having spent too much time figuring things out, going back and changing something would mean a different path. Not only would you not be who you are now, but your path wouldn’t likely have been any better than the one you traveled to get this point.My 23 year old self might have listened to whatever advice I would have given him, but he wasn’t likely to act on at that time. He knew too much at that time and only decided it was better not to know anything and to pay attention and learn many years later. But the advice wouldn’t have helped him much anyway, and it wouldn’t have helped you either.A Different PathA different path would have meant that you avoided some mistakes only to make new and different mistakes, mistakes that you wouldn’t have liked any better than the ones you made. You would have made different choices, and you would have a different set of regrets. The perfect life you might believe you would have lived would be made of mistakes, missteps, and missed opportunities, even if they were different than the ones you experienced. That perfect life would still have been full of joy and happiness and loss and suffering because these are the things that make up every life.You have to be grateful for the adversity you faced because it is what made you stronger.All the many mistakes you made are what eventually made you wiser.The many losses you have suffered are what finally made you appreciate what you have.All of your fears are what allowed you to find the courage hidden inside you.Your critics proved you were creating something that required a reaction.The things that were inadequate provided you with your drive to make things better.Your anger proved you cared about something enough to fight for it.Even though it is challenging to accept, you have to be grateful for the whole path, not just the good parts, the easy parts.No Time MachineThe thought experiment that is looking backward to decide what you wished you would have known or to identify what you might have done differently isn’t nearly as useful as a different exercise. You have already paid for mistakes of the past and acquired the wisdom you would share with your younger self. Instead of asking yourself what you might have done differently in the long distant past, you should ask yourself what advice should be giving yourself now.While you can’t do anything about your past, you right now possess the power to do something about your future. You can choose to take action to prevent your future regrets. A better thought experiment means asking yourself what Future You is going to wish you had done now. Instead of talking to the twenty-year-old version of yourself, you should speak to the person you are now and convince them to stop making the mistake that is going to impact the future version of yourself.Why would you spend time contemplating a different past, something you can never change, when you have the power to change your future now?last_img read more

What went into Anushka Sharma, Virat Kohli’s exquisite wedding attires

first_imgWith so many decisions to make before and during one’s own wedding, looking one’s absolute best becomes a bit cumbersome. That’s clearly not the case with celebrity couples, though, especially if they’ve had somewhat of a secret wedding with no one but just close relatives in attendance.We’re talking about the couple of the hour, Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli–the two went away on a “secret getaway” to Tuscany, Italy, only to make a lifelong commitment of love to one another. And while they did that, both of them ended up looking the best they have so far.So, what is it that went into making one of the most good-looking bride and groom of Indian entertainment industry look this good? We take a look…Anushka’s lehengaPicture courtesy: Instagram/sabyasachiofficialAnushka Sharma wore a pale-pink lehenga with delicate embroidery by Sabyasachi, and looked more radiant than ever. What really worked for the actress were the vintage English colours of the lehenga’s embroidery–it was majorly done in pink, mild green, yellow and just a dash of peacock blue. This delicate embroidery was then embellished with silver-gold metal thread, pearls and beads, which lent the lehenga the subtle vibe it boasted of.The fact that Anushka wore a garland made of fully bloomed, pale-pink and yellow roses to complement the colours of her lehenga also worked wonders for her look.Virat’s sherwaniPicture courtesy: Instagram/sabyasachiofficialIt’s not every day that you see cricketer Virat Kohli donning a sherwani. When he did, however, he made for one dashing groom!advertisementWhile Virat matched steps with Anushka, choosing a pale-pink sherwani for his big day, what made Virat’s look really stand out was his royal, silk turban (safa) and the jewel embellishment atop it, especially the delicate feather.Virat’s raw-silk sherwani by Sabyasachi Mukherjee was hand-embroidered in a vintage Benarasi pattern and sported royal-looking buttons.Anushka’s jewellery Picture courtesy: Instagram/sabyasachiofficialAs exquisite as Anushka’s lehenga was, it was her uncut-diamond jewellery by Sabyachi that elevated her look to a whole new level of regal.The uncut-diamond choker Anushka wore with her wedding attire boasted of pale-pink spinel stones and baroque Japanese cultured pearls.Picture courtesy: Instagram/sabyasachiofficialDespite wearing three very heavy pieces of jewellery–chocker, headband and long necklace– Anushka’s bridal look was not even close to gaudy, thanks to the subtlety and consistency of colours throughout her attire.Vitrat’s embroidered stolePicture courtesy: Instagram/sabyasachiofficial In place of jewellery, Virat decided to embellish his look with a rather exquisitely embroidered stole (or dupatta). The gold, zardosi work on Virat’s pink, silk stole lent his groom demeanour a rather royal touch, making him look absolutely regal for one of the biggest days of his life.
