Nicaraguans in San Jose, Costa Rica, celebrate the release of 222 political prisoners on February 9, 2023. Some “stateless” Nicaraguans in the US are betting on continuing their asylum process there before accepting another nationality. Spain, Chile, Colombia, Argentina, and Mexico offered their nationality to the “stateless” Nicaraguans. Gomez, who denounced the abuses of the Ortega regime to a US congressional committee, assured that she will remain “stateless” until her asylum process progresses. This translates into generating facilities for political asylum, refuge or stateless status.
And rightfully it was so for New Zealand, who scripted one of their greatest ever comebacks in a Test match. Then Ben Foakes got his act together with his valiant knock before James Anderson smashed one through the mid-wicket to put England two runs away from the win. The left-armer returned after Southee's maiden over, angled the second delivery of the over across to the leg side as Anderson went for the poke. Anderson was left gutted, murmuring words to himself as Wagner and New Zealand begun their celebration. Special mention to Kane, Tommy and Timmy the way they batted," Wagner said after the win.21 days ago Hindustan Times

Marseille 0, PSG 3Kylian Mbappé scored twice and Lionel Messi got the other goal as the World Cup final stars combined to give French league leader Paris Saint-Germain a 3-0 win at title challenger Marseille. What better place to do it than at bitter rival Marseille, where PSG lost in the French Cup earlier this month without the injured Mbappé in the team? A win would have moved second-place Marseille within two points of defending champion PSG. Galtier is from Marseille and played for the club as a gritty defender, which means some Marseille fans are simply unable to understand why he is coaching PSG. Defeat means Marseille is now only two points ahead of third-place Monaco and fourth-place Lens, which both have 50 points.21 days ago Macau Daily Times

MUMBAI: The monsoon may still be about three months away, but there are already concerns that an El Nino effect bringing drought-like conditions would raise food inflation. Several research reports have highlighted the possibility of a drop in agricultural output, keeping inflation high during the current financial year.El Nino and La Nina are climate patterns in the Pacific ocean. While La Nina benefits India, the El Nino creates warmer winters, dryer & hotter summers, and a deficient monsoon.The US-based National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has predicted a re-emergence of El Nino with a high probability (55-60%) in June-December 2023. "Of the six times that NOAA ascribed a 45% or higher probability of El Nino in February, only three years saw El Nino actually panning out, while conditions were neutral (normal) in others. One of the main contributors is crude oil price and a decline can offset the increase in food prices.21 days ago Times of India
