first_img Loading… Dutch legend, Wesley Sneijder, is dusting off his boots to come out of retirement at the age of 36. According to RTV Utrecht, The former Real Madrid and Inter Milan star is set to begin training with amateur side DHSC on July 27 in the Netherlands. The Holland hero will build up his fitness with the fifth-tier side based in Utrecht. He quit the pro game back in August after finishing his career with spells at Galatasaray, Nice and Qatari outfit Al-Gharafa. His decision to come out of retirement comes just weeks after old international team-mate Arjen Robben sensationally performed his own career U-turn. Robben, also 36, made an emotional return to boyhood club FC Groningen, the side where he started his career, after being persuaded to make the move by his wife. Sneijder, capped a record 134 times by his country, is believed to be interested in a return to top-flight football with FC Utrecht in the Eredivisie.Advertisement He has a great relationship with the club and the former playmaker is often spotted at Stadion Galgenwaard watching home games from a box. Sneijder was born in Utrecht but never played for his hometown team, instead of bursting onto the scene via the Ajax academy. But that could be set to change as technical director Jordy Zuidam admitted the club are interested in a deal provided Sneijder is in good shape. read also:Sneijder: Inter Milan can win Coppa The midfielder has piled on the pounds in retirement and recently spoke about his booze hell as vodka became his “best friend”.

Son & FatherIn 14 NBA seasons, Jimmy Jackson played for 12 teams. His movement mostly was more about other teams wanting him than teams not wanting him. After all that basketball, though, it was Traevon Jackson’s mom who introduced their son to the game.It was not that Jimmy Jackson did not want his kid on the court. It was that he did not know Traevon existed until he was seven. By then, the boy’s mom, Tammy Winston, was practically mortified when she saw him play basketball.“He was terrible when he first started,” Winston said to The New York Times. “He had no grace. He was just real physical and rough and clumsy.”That could have been because he had been playing football. But the son met his father, developed a relationship, worked hard on his game, and is the point guard on No. 1-seed Wisconsin, which will vie for a Final Four spot tomorrow.But it has not been an easy road. Winston, who played high school basketball, attempted to help her struggling son through pointers and verbal attacks.“She’d always give me little pointers, especially at the free-throw line,” Jackson said. “She’d say, ‘You’re missing them because you aren’t bending your knees.’ I’d be like, ‘C’mon, Mom.’ ”People would chant “Your dad was better” to the young man, almost breaking his spirit.“The negativity would manifest itself to the point where honestly I didn’t even want to play,” Jackson said last year. “I questioned it a lot. I questioned it because I got to a point where I didn’t love the game anymore. I felt like it was more of a job.”That was growing up. At Wisconsin last year, Jackson said he poorly handled some personal situations. “I had a lot of off-the-court stuff,” Jackson said to Fox Sports. “In my mind, I was a good guy. The typical good guy. I would do the right things. But I had a lot of flaws that personally I had to deal with. Whether it be going out, drinking or other things. It was a lot of stuff that I had that wasn’t good. It was my outlook. Instead of it being like a casual thing, it was my outlet thing.”But Jackson seemingly has fought through and is one of the leaders of the team with the best chance to challenge Kentucky for the National Championship. His game is not like his dad’s. Traevon is more of a floor general who can hit the open shot. And he’s a lefty.Jimmy Jackson was selected by the Dallas Mavericks with the fourth pick of the NBA Draft six months before his son was born. He had been a versatile star at Ohio State, where he used size and skill to become one of the nation’s best players.He learned about his son seven years after the draft, and they built a bond. The son joined the father on the road during school holidays and stayed with him in the summers. That passion for football faded to a love for basketball.Fourteen years later, Traevon Jackson has blossomed, but still hears the “Your dad was better” chants from opposing teams. His mom heard them, too.“I’d hear things like: ‘His father was so much better. He’s nothing,’ ” she said to The Times. “There was even a cheer in high school, ‘Your dad was better.’ I would hurt for him because he could never be just Traevon Jackson. He was Jim Jackson’s son.”Traevon Jackson did not let the detractors win. He worked hard and then harder and earned his way to Wisconsin’s starting point guard spot. He broke his foot about six weeks ago and made his return in the Badgers’ 79-72 victory over North Carolina. He played only five minutes, but should be able to log more tomorrow.Jackson said he was not concerned about recovering from his injury because he had overcome so much more. And he reverted to the spiritual upbringing his mom instilled in him.“I honestly had a peace about me,” he said. “I’ve really just been able to surrender everything to God, trust in Him and His plan.” read more

first_imgKolkata: The Calcutta High Court administration has framed rules that consider strike by lawyers as interference to dispensation of justice in accordance with a Supreme Court order that said lawyers have no right to strike. A 69-day ceasework called by lawyers’ associations from February had severely affected the justice delivery system at the Calcutta High Court. The administration told a division bench of Chief Justice Jyotirmoy Bhattacharya and Justice Arijit Banerjee that the rules will be placed before the full court for approval. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsPetitioner A K Sarangi had moved a PIL seeking direction to the high court administration to comply with the apex court’s direction by framing appropriate rules under Section 34 of the Advocates Act, 1961 to make it clear that strikes by advocates will be considered interference with the administration of justice and for taking action against advocates who resort to cease work. The counsel representing the high court administration submitted before the bench that “the rules have been framed and are waiting to be placed before the full court for approval.” A ‘full court’ is a session of a court which is attended by all its judges. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedNoting the development, the division bench had disposed of the PIL on May 15.Srikanta Dutta, counsel for the petitioner, said that in 2002 the Supreme Court had passed a direction to the high courts in the ex-captain Harish Uppal versus Union of India case with regard to strikes by lawyers. The apex court had directed the high courts to frame rules under Section 34 of the Advocates Act, 1961, to make clear that any strike by lawyers will be treated as interference to the administration of justice, he said today. In 2015, Sarangi had filed an RTI application to know whether such rules had been framed by the Calcutta High Court administration. He was informed that the rules were yet to be framed, Dutta said.Sarangi had then filed a PIL before the high court seeking direction on the administration to frame the rules. In 2016, the then Chief Justice Girish Gupta and Justice Arindam Sinha directed that opinion in this regard be sought from all district courts in the state through the Bar Council of West Bengal and rules be framed within three months after receiving those. When the matter came up for hearing earlier this month, the administration told the court that rules have been framed. Three lawyers’ associations had called a ceasework from February 19 seeking appointment of judges to the high court, whose strength had fallen to 30 only against a sanctioned strength of 72.The ceasework was called off after the union law ministry had appointed seven new judges to the HC.last_img read more
