Neymar scored two goals and set up two more as Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) extended their Ligue 1 lead to nine points with a 4-1 away demolition of Stade Rennais on Saturday. Neymar struck both sides of the interval and assisted Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani to score, putting PSG on 47 points from 18 games after second-placed Monaco hammered St Etienne 4-0 on Friday at Geoffroy Guichard.   Rennes, who finished with 10 men after Benjamin Andre was sent off in the 63rd minute, replied through Firmin Mubele and stayed sixth on 25 points. Brazil forward Neymar quickly found the back of the net at Roazhon Park as he tapped in from Mbappe's cross after only four minutes. He returned the favour in the 17th minute by setting up Mbappe in the box, the French international doubling the tally from close range.

Sumedha Raikar-Mhatre: Born out of a space crunch 17.12.2017 news
A Chakkiwala surrounded by grain-powdered hindalium containers in Lower Parel; fiery orange hues of the Fall foliage in Quebec; labourers mounted on scaffolds at a construction site in Baroda. Present any of these scenarios to Mumbai-based visual artist Teja Gavankar, 31, and she will arrive at a geometric design or an unobserved symmetry in each. She will first describe the shape of the setting monosyllabically - round, rectilinear, oval, cubic, square - before taking to richer analyses of its other physiognomies. Gavankar, a resident of Borivli, sees design schemes in everyday spaces, as is evident in her first solo, Other's Spaces, an assemblage of paper drawings, sculptures and an installation called Split Corner, which had a month-long stay before wrapping up yesterday at Montreal's Optica, a centre for contemporary art. Back home, and true to her not-repeat-but-reinvent dictum, Gavankar is now building on Other's Spaces for an architecture exhibition at Jaipur's Jawahar Kala Kendra scheduled for ...

Sunday Story: Chikkabetta, where time stops for the Jain legends 17.12.2017
When a religion crosses the confines of the land it was born in and conquers the minds of mortals in faraway nations, there has to be something magical and enduring about the depth of its thought and the richness of its ideals. Jainism, the ancient religion , has adherents across the globe which is not surprising considering its appeal to the human mind in search of the eternal truth. Those wonderstruck by its wisdom, did not forget to leave a legacy behind which can be seen in Chikkabetta at Shravanabelagola, now known as Chandragiri. M.B.

Travelling bright 17.12.2017 The Tribune
Vikas Sharma Air travel has become an experience to be endured rather than enjoyed. The downside for frequent air travellers is the rising incidence of adverse effects of long air travels on skin and mucosae. So, knowing some important facts are of paramount importance while flying. The arid environment of a long air flight can make skin look dull, aged, dry and tired. Air travel may also increase the speed at which infections spread. The health risks on a plane rise manifold when a flight is delayed and ventilation systems are turned off. Since there is hardly any moisture in the air during flight, moisturixers don’t work as well. Your best bet is to use a moisturizer with hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is the key molecule involved in skin moisture and has a unique capacity to bind and retain water molecules. In fact, just one gram (0.03 ounce) of hyaluronic acid can hold up to six liters of water. Inactivity as well as too much salt intake during a long flight can cause water retention, which shows ...
