The Blues battled to a goalless draw at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon to take a step closer to the Barclays Premier League title, which they can secure later this week with victories over Leicester and then Crystal Palace. Both manager Jose Mourinho and captain John Terry rejected chants of “boring boring Chelsea” from sections of the home supporters during the closing stages of the match as the west London club edged towards their goal of being crowned the best side in England. Press Association “Yes, I think we can (be closer with Chelsea in the title race next season),” the France forward said. “Hopefully we will have less injuries and if we keep this group, with maybe one or two new players coming in, we can have a great season. “I know we can still improve as we have been doing since I signed. I am proud about it and pleased with that. “I just want to carry on like that and I know if we keep our best players, this determination and team spirit, I am sure we are going to join the championship race.” Henry suggested Arsenal need to bring in a “top-quality striker” if they are to become title contenders. Giroud has scored 18 goals this term, despite missing three months with a broken leg. “Mental strength is hugely important when you are a football player and even more as a striker. You have people who doubt your abilities and you have to believe that you can always come back,” the former Montpellier frontman said. “If you miss chances in one game, it is not because you have lost your talent or your belief. You have to be faithful to your qualities. That is part of being a player, being strong in your head. “In football you have to question yourself every week, be ready in your head and you have to be 100 per cent determined if you want to keep going in the games.” Arsenal are in third place following Manchester City’s win over Aston Villa on Saturday, but do have a game in hand. The Gunners are not in action again until the trip to Hull on Bank Holiday Monday. Giroud added: “It has been a few years since Arsenal finished second and, if we can do it, we can see an improvement. “But the championship is not finished, which is why we need to focus in the last five games. “We need to finish in second and win the FA Cup, and then it will be a great season.” Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud believes Chelsea are “pleased” with the way they play – and reckons neither club will be ready to change their football philosophy in the quest for success again next season. Giroud accepts, given Chelsea’s healthy 10-point lead, that the end looks to have justified the means – even if it is an approach which Arsene Wenger’s squad would not embrace. “I did not hear (the fans’ chants), because I do not understand most of the time, so I ask my English team-mates. Boring? I don’t know, but there is the table who speaks for them,” the 28-year-old said. “It is true maybe they are not (playing) the same game as us, but we are not going to change our game and I think they are not going to change their game. “I think they are pleased with that and, if they are champions, what can you say?” Despite a superb run of form in the second half of the campaign, Arsenal are left paying a heavy price for their slow start which returned just two victories from the first eight league matches. Former Gunners captain Thierry Henry used his post-match media pundit role to speak about the need to “buy four players” in the summer to improve the “spine” of the team. Wenger, however, reckons there is “not a lot” between the two sides. Giroud echoed Wenger’s belief Arsenal can challenge for the championship in 2016.
Greenpeace Activists Crash Congressional Hearing Dressed As Swamp Monsters To Protest Oil Ties In 2019, the annual Earth Hour, which is understood to be the world’s largest, environmental grassroots movement to day, is being celebrated across the globe on March 30. It is organised by World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) to encourage individuals, communities and business organisations to turn off the lights one hour from 8:30 pm and 9:30 pm, as a mark showing concern and work towards the betterment of the planet Earth.Now, popular short video sharing platform Tik Tok in collaboration with WWF-India is organising a campaign ‘Bee4ThePlanet’ to persuade its players to embrace sustainable practices such as shun plastics, consume water judiciously and do their part in conserving the local biodiversity. Tik Tok in collaboration with World Wide Fund for Nature to celebrate Earth Hour with special initiatives in IndiaTik Tok Press Kit”We are excited to have partnered with the WWF-India to celebrate Earth Hour 2019, one of the most successful environmental protection related campaigns in the world, with over 180 countries participating.

Over the past 50 years, the global ecological footprint (one measure of our consumption of natural resources) has increased by over 190%. The Living Planet Index suggests that India’s ecological footprint per person is less than 1.75 global hectares/person (which is the lowest bracket and is smaller than that of many large countries).However, India’s population which is currently in upward trajectory will face issues near future and its imperative not just for government or corporate companies, but also citizens to learn to consume resource conservatively before it’s too late.With Tik Tok have millions of active users, the company has started a novel #Bee4ThePlanet-hash-tag and ‘buzz for the planet’ campaign with fun bee sticker, encouraging them to come with interesting videos with information on conservation of important resources and also encourage family and friends to reduce the carbon footprint (means—reduce the impact on environment by consuming less resources) and basically embrace minimalistic lifestyle.
