San Francisco Giants Complete Sweep Win World Series Over

On a cool, damp night in Detroit, the San Francisco Giants — who came back from seemingly insurmountable deficits in their two playoff series — completed a sweep of the Tigers in 10 innings to capture the World Series for the second time in three years.Their 4-3 Game 4 win capped a dramatic post-season for San Francisco, which trailed the Cincinnati Reds 0-2 in the divisional series and the St. Louis Cardinals 1-3 in the NLCS.Marco Scutaro, who has been outstanding, delivered one more key hit this October, a go-ahead single with two outs in the 10th inning that proved to be the winning run.“Detroit probably didn’t know what it was in for,” Giants general manager Brian Sabean said. “Our guys had a date with destiny.”The Giants combined the most important elements of championship baseball. After three straight wins that looked relatively easy, they sealed this victory when Sergio Romo got Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera to look at strike three for the final out.A wild on-field celebration ensued, and was carried into the clubhouse.“Tonight was a battle,” Giants star Buster Posey said. “And I think tonight was a fitting way for us to end it because those guys played hard. They didn’t stop, and it’s an unbelievable feeling.”Posey, the only player who was in the starting lineup when San Francisco beat Texas in the 2010 clincher, and the underdog Giants celebrated in the center of the diamond at Comerica Park.They built toward this party all month, winning six elimination games this postseason. In the clubhouse, they hoisted the trophy, passed it around and shouted the name of each player who held it.Benched during the 2010 Series, Pablo Sandoval, nicknamed Kung Fu Panda, went 8 for 16, including a three-homer performance in Game 1.“You learn,” Sandoval said. “You learn from everything that happened in your career. . . We’re working hard to enjoy this moment right now.”Cabrera delivered the first big hit for Detroit, interrupting San Francisco’s run of dominant pitching with a two-run homer that blew over the right-field wall in the third.Posey put the Giants ahead 3-2 with a two-run homer in the sixth and Delmon Young hit a tying home run in the bottom half.It then became a matchup of bullpens, and the Giants prevailed.Ryan Theriot led off the 10th with a single against Phil Coke, moved up on Brandon Crawford’s sacrifice and scored on a shallow single by Scutaro, the MVP of the NL championship series. Center fielder Austin Jackson  made a throw home, to no avail.“That’s what it makes so much special, the way we did it,” Scutaro said. “We’re always against the wall and my team, it just came through first series, second series and now we sweep the Tigers.” read more

While Chinmayi thrashes Sandeep Reddy RGV stands by Kabir Singh director

first_imghttps://www.ibtimes.co.in/sandeep-reddy-opens-kabir-singh-reviewers-calls-them-parasites-pseudo-critics-801137 Ram Gopal Varma and Sandeep Reddy VangaCollage of photos taken from Twitter and FacebookHours after singer Chinmayi Sripaada thrashed Sandeep Reddy Vanga for defending his concept of love, ace filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma aka RGV batted for the Kabir Singh director by comparing his film to Baahubali 2.Kabir Singh might have been a huge success at the box office, but it has faced the wrath of activists who are angry with Sandeep Reddy Vanga for glorifying violence against women. The film unit was keeping mum on the issue for the last two weeks until the director defended it in an interview to Anupama Chopra.The clip featuring Sandeep Reddy Vanga, describing what love is, went viral and created ripples on social media on Sunday. Feminists had a field day as many of them shared this video and thrashed the director. Chinmayi Sripaada was one of those activists, who condemned Sandeep for showcasing violence in the name of love. In a series of tweets, she tried to prove his concept of love is wrong.Chinmayi Sripaada: If a man is deeply connected with you – He will NEVER LAY HIS HANDS ON YOU. He will NEVER slap you. He will NEVER TOUCH YOU without your consent. Women (and young boys) have been told for aeons that being beaten up is a sign of *Love* / *Discipline*. IT IS ABUSE!I am in love. My husband loves me to bits. He didn’t have to hit me to prove that he is. Women stay in abusive marriages because men beat them up and then help them heal from the wounds that should have NEVER been there. Kids grow up in homes like this.A man who gets a woman to remove her clothes at knife point is a troubled man. Yes, such men can be in love and their stories can be told. I have known of women who are in abusive relationships/marriages with men. But *glorifying those men as Gods* is the problem.Trust me – when you are deeply connected with an individual and you’re deeply in love – You’d NEVER do anything to hurt them.Precisely the problem. When well meaning men will now normalise slapping the women they ‘love’ because they’ll claim they’re *deeply connected*. I guess the damage is done. God help us.And I say both women and men should be in harmonious relationships for a healthy society. For homes to be healthy. For kids to grow up safe. That’s all.Feminism asks for equal rights. It’s not OK for anyone to be slapped. It is not OK for any person of any gender to be in a toxic relationship. I do know that most women and men who use feminism in a negative context don’t know what it stands for and that’s OK.Barely an hour after Chinmayi Sripaada’s dig at him, Ram Gopal Varma took to his Twitter account to bat for Sandeep Reddy Vanga. RGV tweeted the link to his latest interview and praised him for his honesty and courage. He tweeted, “I think @imvangasandeep is the most perfect mix of innocent honesty and truthful courage.. This interview of his,is as pathbreaking as his #KabirSingh.”Ram Gopal Varma did not stop there. He went on to say that the success of Kabir Singh is four times bigger than SS Rajamouli’s historical blockbuster Baahubali 2. In a series of tweets, the controversial filmmaker also said that his story and characters are the exact opposite of what the film industry believes. They are exactly what the audience will love and relate to.Ram Gopal Varma: Speaking only of Hindi,In ratio of ROI(Return on investment) @imvangasandeep ‘s KABIR SINGH is 4 times bigger hit than BAHUBALI 2 and taking time into consideration it is 16 times bigger hit than BAHUBALI 2 considering KABIR SINGH was made in 6 months and BAHUBALI 2 in 2 yearsAmazing thing about @imvangasandeep is that his story and it’s characters are the exact opposite of what the film industry always believed,what the audience will love and relate to .. #KabirSingh ‘s monstrous success proves that he knows the actual reality of the audienceMe toasting ⁦⁦@imvangasandeep⁩ at Mumbai’s Alfredo’s in celebrating #KabirSingh ‘s Godzillian successlast_img read more

Did you know Why you should never wear leggings on airplanes

first_imgDid you know? Why you should never wear leggings on airplanes Share Wednesday, March 15, 2017 NEW YORK — Say it ain’t so! An aviation expert has come forward to denounce the many benefits of leggings, which have become the must-have accessory for women while travelling.According to Cosmopolitan, aviation expert Christine Negroni told The Sun that yoga-style leggings shouldn’t be worn on planes, not because they may not be warm enough or can be regarded by some as ‘skimpy’, but because they may actually be a fire hazard.“Everyone is wearing yoga pants on aeroplanes now, but I avoid all artificial fibres because they are more likely to burn and stick to you if there is a fire,” she told The Sun during her interview.Negroni suggests clothes made of cotton and natural fibres as a safer alternative, and also advises passengers to put their shoes on prior to arrival. While many of us are guilty of shedding our footwear throughout the course of a long flight, Negroni says that the riskiest time on a flight is during landing, which is why a shoe policy should be enforced.More news:  Can you guess the one and only hotel company to rank on Indeed’s Top Workplaces in Canada list?“If you escape an aircraft, the floor could be very hot or cold, it might be covered in oil or on fire, or in a cornfield – you won’t want to be barefoot,” she added.Got it. Ditch the leggings and keep our shoes on. But oh, how difficult it’ll be to leave those leggings at home.
