Waiting and Hoping is a hard thing to do when you have already been waiting and hoping for almost as long as you can bear it.

Paraguay beat Brazil 4-3 in a penalty shootout after a 1-1 draw on Saturday to advance to the semi-finals of the Copa America. Midfielder Everton Ribeiro and striker Douglas Costa each missed penalties for Brazil, and Derlis Gonzalez converted the winning spot-kick for Paraguay, setting up a match against Argentina on Tuesday. Chile will face Peru on Monday in the other semi.
It was the second consecutive time that Paraguay eliminated Brazil on penalties in the quarter-finals of the South American tournament.

মাশরাফিদের কাছে ধোনিদের ওয়ানডে সিরিজে হারের কারণ খুঁজছে ভারত। সৌরভ গাঙ্গুলিও তা খুঁজছেন; তবে দারুণ খেলা বাংলাদেশকে প্রশংসা করতে ভোলেননি ভারতের এই সাবেক ক্রিকেটার।তিন ম্যাচের ওয়ানডে সিরিজের প্রথম দুটিতে হেরে বাংলাদেশের কাছে ভারতের প্রথমবারের মতো সিরিজ হার নিশ্চিত হয়ে যায়। তৃতীয় ওয়ানডেতে মান বাঁচানো জয় পায় মহেন্দ্র সিং ধোনির দল। উত্তরসূরিদের খেলায় হতাশ হওয়া গাঙ্গুলি বাংলাদেশের প্রশংসা করে বলেন, “এটা হতাশাজনক (সিরিজ ফল)। কিন্তু বাংলাদেশ অসাধারণ ক্রিকেট খেলেছে এবং তাদের কৃতিত্ব দেওয়া উচিত।” [Coll.]

Astronomy / Monster black hole wakes up after 26 years
« on: June 28, 2015, 11:27:15 AM »
Artist’s impression of a black hole feasting on matter from its companion star in a binary system. Material flows from the star towards the black hole and gathers in a disc, where it is heated up, shining brightly at optical, ultraviolet and X-ray wavelengths before spiralling into the black hole. Part of the disc material does not end up onto the black hole but is ejected the form of two powerful jets of particles. On 15 June 2015, the black-hole binary system V404 Cygni started showing signs of extraordinary activity, something that had not happened since 1989. The system consists of a black hole about twelve times more massive than the Sun and a companion star about half as massive as the Sun. [Coll.]

I am the Poem of Earth, said the voice of the rain,
Eternal I rise impalpable out of the land and the bottomless sea,
Upward to heaven, whence, vaguely form'd, altogether changed, and
yet the same. [Walt Whitman]

Cricket / Bangladesh thrive on captain Mashrafe
« on: June 25, 2015, 09:31:01 PM »
Bangladesh ODI captain Mashrafe Mortaza’s leadership qualities came to the fore from last November, and saw his team win 10 matches at home on the trot either side of a successful World Cup campaign.
Mashrafe uses his cricketing brain to stay a step ahead of the game, reading the situation correctly more often than not.
As Bangladesh’s ODI captain, Mashrafe played 21 matches so far. He won 15 games and lost 6. His winning percentage of 71.42 is the best among all former Bangladeshi captains.
During the second game against India, Mashrafe took a gamble and bowled Nasir Hossain as an attacking off-spinner. The move paid off brilliantly.
Nasir took the crucial wickets of Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli in his opening spell and gave away only 33 runs in ten, tight overs.
Mashrafe was aware of India’s recent problems with off-spinners, particularly against Moeen Ali in England and Nathan Lyon in Australia.
"Actually before the India series I saw a statistic that in the last year they have been weak against offspinners," Mashrafe said.
"They have given most of their wicket to offspinners. So from that aspect, I think Nasir is one of the best offspinners for Bangladesh in ODIs. I had only one offspinner in my hand and I wanted to use him." Bangladesh skipper added.
Mashrafe said that contributing with the ball has helped Nasir build his confidence as a batsman too.
"Even in the World Cup he bowled well and I like that he believes that he can bowl 10 overs.”
“At this moment I believe that he is doing well with the bat. In the last match he came down the track and hit a six. That is good intent," Mashrafe said to the press.
Under Mashrafe’s leadership, Bangladesh has been playing a fearless brand of cricket of late and can fight back even when the chips are down.
Whenever India seemed to have the upper hand during the two games of the series, Bangladesh found a way to counter their threat and be on top.
"I think the boys are playing fearless cricket," Mashrafe said.
"This is the significant change. The boys are not scared to play shots. They are not scared to put the slips on so I think that sort of cricket has changed. Cricket is all about mind games. I think we are all playing good cricket at the moment, especially with our head in the right place."
