From Paris 1900 to Tokyo 2020, India’s tryst with the Olympics spans over a hundred years but the returns haven’t been proportionate. Although India had a single representative in Paris in 1900, Tokyo 2020 will mark 100 years since India sent their first official contingent to an Olympics at the 1920 Antwerp Games. A century of Olympic history is filled with a number of highs – such as a record eight gold medals in hockey, six of which were consecutive; KD Jadhav’s first individual Olympic medal for an independent India and Abhinav Bindra’s historic gold at Beijing 2008. There have also been some lows and a couple of heartbreaks along the way. Here’s a look at India’s Olympic history over the past century. Pre-independence: Norman Pritchard and the first hockey hat-trick India’s first brush with the Olympics came at the 1900 Paris Olympics – where Norman Pritcha.....

A financial shot in the arm could be just what is needed for Americans unsure about vaccination. On May 12, 2021, the Republican governor of Ohio, Mike DeWine, announced five US 1 million lottery prizes for those who are vaccinated. Meanwhile, in West Virginia, younger citizens are being enticed to get the shot with 100 savings bonds, and a state university in North Carolina is offering students who get vaccinated a chance to win the cost of housing. Many companies are paying vaccinated employees more money through bonuses or extra paid time off. The push to get as many people vaccinated as possible is laudable and may well work. But leading behavioral scientists are worried that paying people to vaccinate could backfire if it makes people more skeptical of the shots. And ethicists have argued that it would be wrong, citing concerns over fairness and equity. As a behavioural scientist an.....

ప్రపంచంలో ఏ మూల చూసిన ఏ మున్నది చెప్పుకోవడానికి, వైరస్ విలయతాండవం, మరణాలు, మారణ హోమాలు, వరద భీభత్సాలు, అగ్నిజ్వాలల విధ్వంసం, రాజకీయ కుమ్ములాటలు. మరో సంవత్సరం వచ్చినంత తొందరగానే వెళ్లిపోతోంది. కొత్త సంవత్సరానికి స్వాగతం పలుకుతూ, కొన్ని చేదు జ్ఞాపకలను మిగులుస్తూ, రేపు మీద ఆశను రేపుతూ నెమ్మదిగా జారుకుంటోంది. ఈ సంవత్సరం ప్రపంచమంతా విస్.....
The Governor-General Hon. David Hurley has agreed to the Commonwealth Government’s recommendation to make an amendment to Australia’s National Anthem, Advance Australia Fair. The second line of Advance Australia Fair will change from ‘For we are young and free’ to ‘For we are one and free.’ The new Anthem will take effect from 1 January 2021. Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the change was made for all Australians. “During the past year we have showed once again the indomitable spirit of Australians and the united effort that has always enabled us to prevail as a nation. It is time to ensure this great unity is reflected more fully in our national anthem,” the Prime Minister said. “Also, while Australia as a modern nation may be relatively young, our country’s story is ancient, as are the stories of the many First Nations peoples whose stewardship we rightly ack.....
