the edition the standout player of the tournament and thebiggest disappointment of the World Cup Here’s who they picked as the biggest disappointment of the showpiece event Shivam Damohe Firstpost staff writer When Turkey reached the semi-finals of the UEFA European U-17 Championships a few months ago the team had sent out a strong message The focus on the team’s technical style of play enabled them to play freely and the results showed how Mehmet Hacioglu’s young guns adhered to his philosophy – something the Turkish team often boasts about However at the U-17 World Cup where they were clubbed with New Zealand Mali and Paraguay in Group B Turkey struggled They were outplayed not once but thrice Despite scoring the first goal of the tournament the young Turks failed to impress thereafter losing 0-3 and 1-3 to Mali and Paraguay respectively Hacioglu spoke highly of his side’s technical prowess but there was no evidence of it on the field The midfield was in tatters and the defence disorganised All opponents had to do was crowd five players at the back and look to counter-attack and exploit the Turkish defence With so much promise upfront Turkey were sent packing with a single point It was a shame to see a team with so much talent crash out rather embarrassingly from the competition Amit Kamath Firstpost staff writer Indian players look dejected after missing out on chances against Colombia Getty Images The euphoria of having an Indian score the country’s first-ever goal at a World Cup will linger for some time But it could have been a lot more India’s 1-2 loss against Colombia could have been — nay should have been — a draw at the very least In the first half itself India had two incredible chances Abhijit Sarkar hit his shot straight at the ‘keeper while Rahul KP hit the woodwork later If either had gone in India would have taken the lead We still have Jeakson Singh Thounaojam’s goal to cherish But it seemed the delirium caused by that goal caused India to switch off mentally culminating into Colombia scoring their second goal which snatched away the match from India’s hand A draw would have been an apt result for the heart and vim the Indian team showed that evening against Colombia Manas Mitul Freelance journalist It would be harsh to label a team as a disappointment Youth tournaments are a valuable learning experience for all teams and players involved It is like a coming of age for the stars of tomorrow They get to know what it is like to represent your country on the world stage If they win they learn what it takes to become champions; if they lose they learn way more So my disappointment of the U-17 World Cup was the relentless rain in Guwahati which rendered the pitch unplayable for the semi-final So many fans missed out on a chance to see England and Brazil two football giants take on each other in a knockout game Priyansh Freelance journalist The All India Football Federation (AIFF) Although nobody expected India to pick up a point in the group stage the national side’s last-place finish in a tournament of 24 nations was hardly worth celebrating Yet the administrators involved with Indian football were of the opinion that India should be proud Three defeats and a negative goal difference of eight according to the AIFF President Praful Patel was an impressive return for a side that performed “exceedingly well” Unfortunately the insularity of Indian football continues to thrive Niger and New Caledonia – without any comparable resources to India – outperformed the hosts on their debut appearances in the under-17 World Cup The Nigeriens in fact made it to the knockout stages Not to forget Ghana coach Paa Kwesi Fabin was of the opinion that India has far better infrastructure than the African heavyweight Yet lessons are unlikely to be learnt The absence of an adequate grassroots programme will mean that the AIFF will continue to spend an inordinate amount of money on a bunch of players instead of investing in the system But well the ‘redoubtable’ FIFA has given its stamp of approval to Indian football Delusion will be sold again Sreya Mazumder Freelance journalist England players console the Brazilians after beating the South American giants in the semi-finals Getty Images Brazil in spite of their third-place finish was the biggest disappointment especially during the knock-out stages Although scorelines might suggest otherwise Brazil were playing unlike their natural self in their final three matches against Germany England and Mali The ‘Samba flair’ was absent to the disappointment of the huge contingent of Brazil supporters in the packed stands at Yuva Bharati Krirangan and their coach Carlos Amadeu who dubbed their win over Mali as “our worst match in two and half years of preparation” Wins and losses are a part and parcel of the sport – but it was Brazil’s lacklustre performance against Mali the lack of a sense of urgency while chasing the game against England and the casualness in their body language during their first-half against Germany which disappointed fans The deficits were as much temperamental as they were technical – the reigning U-17 CONMEBOL champions simply could not match up to the pace directness and ingenuity of their opponents – their craft falling way shorter of the optimal standards necessary at this level Kaushal Shukla Firstpost staff writer Mexico came into the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup as champions of the CONCACAF U-17 Championship and with an envious track record at the global event Having reached at least the semi-finals in each of their previous three campaigns Mexico were expected to be there come the business end of the tournament However the North Americans never got into the groove in India and scraped through to the Round of 16 as the fourth-best third-placed team Placed in the Group of Death with eventual champions England Iraq and Chile Mexico failed to live up to the billing They managed just two points from the group stage before crashing out at the hands of Iran in the pre-quarters Mexico weren’t the favourites to win the competition at the start but they were expected to at least ruffle some feathers Thanks to their failure to produce the kind of football that was expected of them the Group of Death turned out to be a rather meek battle with England dominating throughout Swapnaneel Paraskar Freelance journalist Being in Guwahati it had to be the semifinal between Brazil and England which never happened in the rain-struck northeastern city later shifted to Kolkata Plus a lot of hopes were pinned on Mexico who were the top-seeded team but crashed out in the second round itself Nearly a thousand students at Ithaca College protested against the college’s president on Wednesday in the wake of other race-related student protests at the University of Missouri and Yale Leaders of IC’s People of Color group spearheaded a walkout against Ithaca president Tom Rochon posting on Facebook that it’s “vital to fight against both covert and overt racism in all places of education and empowerment” the Ithaca Journal reports The student government has also asked for a vote of “confidence” or “no confidence” in Rochon The protests at IC were sparked by three specific incidents the first of which took place in September when resident advisers complained about racial profiling An October roundtable discussion on campus took a racially charged turn when a black woman was referred to as a ‘savage’ and a “Preps & Crooks” party in late October sparked outrage when current and former students found its theme to be racially insensitive The walkout and subsequent vote follows student protests at Missouri which led to the resignation of the schools president and chancellor IC students held 20 minutes of silence for “solidarity with other campuses” according to the college’s newspaper Rochon released a statement on Tuesday announcing he’d be hiring a Chief Diversity Officer writing that the school has “an opportunityand the moral necessityto use this moment of intensity to make a real difference on the longstanding issues of racism and inclusion”

on it In another surprising twist to a long-running Italian drama health industry entrepreneur Giuseppe Rotelli yesterday won the bidding for the San Raffaele del Monte Tabor Foundation a renowned hospital and basic research institute in Milan that works on gene therapy and molecular medicine Researchers at San Raffaele are hopeful that they can continue to work and that grants from the European Research Council and some Italian agencies imperiled by a looming bankruptcy will now be safe But some worry that the new owner has little interest in basic research For reasons that aren’t entirely clear yet San Raffaele has racked up a debt of almost 15 billion which according to media reports was one of the reasons why its Vice President Mario Cal committed suicide in July In October a bankruptcy court paved the way for a deal that would allow the Institute for Works of Religion (IOR)—the Vatican Bank’s official name—and Italian entrepreneur Vittorio Malacalza to take over San Raffaele But when the deadline for bids ended yesterday at noon Rotelli came out on top with an offer to take over 500 million of debt and invest a further 405 million The IOR-Malacalza group gave up its right to match that bid Rotelli owns a medical empire of 18 hospitals in Lombardy Italy’s richest region Some San Raffaele Italian scientists are worried that he may be less interested in basic research "We really hope that the new owner will be aware of the fact that the value of San Raffaele is in the indissoluble marriage between healthcare and research" the institute’s scientific director Maria Grazia Roncarolo wrote in an e-mail to ScienceInsider yesterday "and that he will guarantee its development" Roncarolo says San Raffaele’s scientists are "surprised and puzzled" that the IOR-Malacalza group gave up Last evening Rotelli released a brief statement that seemed aimed at allaying those fears It said that Rotelli and his company Velca "want to reassure all San Raffaele employees that the primary goal of his intervention is the protection and further development of the professional skills of all those involved in complete awareness of the value of the indivisible relationship between hospital work teaching university and scientific research which characterizes this institution of excellence" The statement contained no details on Rotelli’s plans however In another dramatic twist San Raffaele’s founder the priest Don Luigi Verzé died of a heart attack on 31 December the day Rotelli made his first bid At 91 Verzé was formally still the chair of the San Raffaele del Monte Tabor Foundation although his actual role was very limited Despite his religious background Verzé never imposed religious restrictions on the institute’s research scientists say "Let’s hope that the values transmitted to us by our founder — the centrality of man the excellence of science and the freedom of research—will be preserved" says Roncarolo The sale of San Raffaele is not final at least on paper and the bankruptcy court’s decree leaves the door open to new investors until 23 January when a creditors’ hearing is scheduled At a press conference held last night at San Raffaele Pier Giuseppe Profiti the current vice-chair of the foundation and the director of a Vatican’s Paediatric Hospital in Rome said that current San Raffaele management would help to make the transition to the new owner as smooth as possible For the fifth time in seven years a state high court has ruled that employers have the right to fire employees who use medical marijuana In a decision released today the Colorado Supreme Court found that Dish Network the national satellite TV provider did not act illegally when it fired Brandon Coats a Denver-area call center rep in 2010 after Coats tested positive for marijuana Although Colorado law permits the use of medical marijuana the court ruled that Dish was within its rights because pot remains illegal under federal law Although the case is limited to Colorado the courts decision has national ramifications Previous cases in California Montana Oregon and Washington all swung for the employer but the Colorado case was seen as the best chance for a ruling in favor of medical marijuana patients–and not just because of the states embrace of medical and recreational pot For one Coats was a particularly sympathetic plaintiff The 35-year-old has been quadriplegic since a car accident at age 16 and has been considered a model employee since being hired by Dish in 2007 In 2009 Coats obtained a state-issued license and began using medical marijuana at night after work "I take it at home every night" he said in an interview last year "It helps me sleep I wake up with less stiffness and it quiets my spasms all through the next day" By sleeping off the psychoactive effects he could report to work clear-headed the next day while the antispasmodic effects of the drug continued to calm his system In 2010 Coats was selected for a random drug test He came up positive for marijuana–as he told his boss he would–and was fired soon after for violating Dish’s anti-drug policy Coats and his lawyer Michael Evans contested the firing in state court Similar marijuana patients in other states had sued–and lost–by citing the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) or the states medical marijuana statute Colorado is one of 23 states and the District of Columbia that allow medical pot These laws allow a patient to cite medicinal use as a legal defense against criminal marijuana charges a practice known as "affirmative defense” But State courts have declined to expand the statutes to include immunity from firing In fact Colorados medical marijuana law like those in many states holds that employers are not required "to accommodate the medical use of marijuana in any work place" The odds were against Coats So his lawyer tried a novel approach Colorado has a "lawful activity" statute that prohibits employers from discriminating against employees for engaging in legal off-duty conduct Coats marijuana use Evans argued was exactly that: legal and off duty Dish replied that Coats medical pot though consumed off-duty was nevertheless active on-duty "Coats freely admits that his [medical marijuana use] affected him while at work even claiming that it altered his job performance" the company said In effect a drug Coats said helped him perform better at work was the reason he was fired This is the kind of Alice in Wonderland logic born of a circumstance in which marijuana is simultaneously a state-legal medicine and a federally illegal drug (Because Coats firing happened in 2010 Colorados 2012 legalization of recreational pot had no bearing on the case) But Dishs argument wasnt as crazy as it might sound Steroids improve a baseball sluggers job performance Cocaine can increase a factory workers short-term productivity To maintain a drug-free workplace (or at least a federally illegal drug-free workplace) Dish was willing to sacrifice the career of one employee–even one as sympathetic as Brandon Coats In the end Coats case like those before his couldnt overcome the inexorable power of federal law Colorados "lawful activity" statute the state high court ruled did not extend its protections to activities considered illegal under federal law In a released statement Dish Network officials said they were pleased with the decision: "As a national employer Dish remains committed to a drug-free workplace and compliance with federal law" The ruling said Evans means that "most employees who work in a state with the worlds most powerful medical marijuana laws will have to choose between using medical marijuana and work" Coats described himself as "very disappointed" by the decision "If were making marijuana legal for medical purposes we need to address issues that come along with it" he said The latest ruling means that those issues wont be solved at the state level anytime soon The barrier is clear: Little will change unless the federal government evolves its own position on marijuana Barcott is a journalist who has contributed to the New York Times National
