played growing up A game of hide-and-seek Backyard cricket with a plastic ball and bat If you are not a single child chances are that your sibling was a part of it For most kids one of the first major rivalries in childhood – healthy or otherwise – is with a sibling It’s hard to ignore their achievements that make the parents go gaga over and it’s harder to avoid gloating when it’s your turn to pull off something impressive The Williams sisters cheer for each other off the court but on it theirs is a fierce rivalry AFP Photos Very few of these rivalries go on to become prominent internationally In professional sports this rivalry often evolves into excellent on-field camaraderie when siblings turn up to represent the same team Mike and Bob Bryan – the all-conquering doubles team in men’s tennis – is the best example of that We also have the Waugh brothers and the Flower brothers in Cricket But when it comes to professional rivalry between siblings there are a few that stand out Venus and Serena Williams The longevity of this rivalry at the highest level alone is startling They first played each other in Australian Open in 1998 in the second round and here they were 17 years later in tennis’ most famous center court taking each other on in the fourth round of Wimbledon This was the 13th Grand Slam meeting between the Williams sisters – with Serena winning eight of them Monday’s 67-minute 6-4 6-3 win included Only one pair has played each other more times at Grand Slams in the Open Era – Chris Evert and Martina Navratilova (22 times) But what is even more extraordinary is the number of times they have directly fought for a slam title The eight times that the Williams sisters have met in Grand Slam finals is second only to the 14 meetings between Evert and Navratilova "I would be rooting for Venus" said Serena before the match “Back then we were definitely fun to watch I think we still are I’ll be cheering for her” said Venus The spectators didn’t care When they took on each other at the biggest stage it was special It wasn’t a classic that fans wanted to see but it had its moments when Venus matched Serena shot for shot her famous booming forehand winners making a special appearance It is a spectacle that’s unmatched in this era of Women’s tennis Michael and Ralf Schumacher If ever a sibling rivalry in sport has an abundant place for jealousy this would be it While Michael owns the record books of Formula One Ralf is barely a footnote Their careers have heavily contrasting numbers – Michael’s 91 race wins dwarfing Ralf’s six Michael and Ralf Schumacher AFP Photos “It’s difficult to answer as to how the relationship works” Ralf had said in 2003 when their rivalry was probably at its closest with Ralf moving to Williams team in 2000 “Yes we’ll always be brothers Yes we’re very close but we are very competitive at the same time” "Michael’s too competitive to look after me I know where his limits are and where my limits are” said Ralf about his brother who is six years older The only season Ralf spent in Formula One where Michael was not racing was 2007 – a year after the legend’s first retirement There was no ‘stepping out of the shadows’ in that season either as Ralf failed to even get on the podium once But Ralf will treasure the win at the Canadian Grand Prix in 2001 when he finished ahead of Micheal who started at pole position That’s the only instance so far of a sibling one-two in Formula One history And that was with Ralf finishing first Peyton and Eli Manning The Manning brothers who both play quarterback in the National Football League (NFL) are a very interesting pair of siblings Most watchers of the league will agree the elder brother Peyton is one of the greatest quarterbacks to have graced the league He holds a plethora of records But the younger Eli has won two Super Bowl Championships compared to Peyton’s one The two championships that Eli won he won them with game-winning touchdown drives Peyton has developed a reputation for reaching playoffs regularly only to falter before the final hurdle – losing 13 of the 24 knockout games he’s played Eli has won 8 of the 11 he’s played In his own words though whereas Peyton is the better quarterback Eli is the better driver the better dresser better cook and more importantly the better lover Kevin-Prince and Jerome Boateng Football the most popular sport in the world has seen numerous instances of brothers playing together for the same country sometimes for the same clubs and often against each others’ clubs The Nevilles the Laudrups the Ferdinands to mention a few But in what is one of the most unique occurrences in world sport Kevin-Prince and Jerome Boateng – half-brothers who grew up in challenging circumstances in Germany – played against each other in two FIFA World Cup encounters It was of course the first time it had ever happened in the World Cup’s 85-year history The elder more flamboyant more aggressive Kevin-Prince decided to play for his country of origin Ghana Jerome the more studious often shy younger brother chose Germany And in June 2010 World Cup history was created when the brothers walked out for different countries to face each other History repeated itself in 2014 as fate pitted the two countries in the same group again Opinionated and often-controversial Kevin-Prince is still seen as a villain in Germany for a tackle on then German captain Michael Ballack which ruled him out of the World Cup in South Africa "The public’s image of him isn’t the best in Germany" Jerome had said before their rematch in Brazil "That wasn’t his intention but it happened and it seemed to confirm a lot of people’s stereotype: ‘the ghetto kicker’ from the troubled district the gangster footballer from Wedding He was made a villain in Germany over that foul" They might not have always been on talking terms but Jerome still defends his elder brother ardently Yusuf and Irfan Pathan India could have had their own chapter in the list of sporting rivalries While IPL made it possible for these brothers to play against each other the more-talented and mercurial Irfan Pathan was derailed by injuries Yusuf Pathan on the other hand has gone on to establish himself as a lynchpin for Kolkata Knight Riders We could have had so many more fun interviews like this one Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko Definitely the odd one out in this list this is a sibling rivalry that never actually was Recalling the day from childhood when elder brother Vitali introduced him to boxing Wladimir said “He hit me so hard I saw stars I thought ‘This is not for me’” Both went on to become great champions from Ukraine competing in the same heavyweight category but the Klitshcko brothers never fought against each other The reason A promise they made their mother of course “I wouldn’t do it even for $1 billion” Wladimir told Bloomberg “You can’t put a price on your mother’s heart” By:

choice Related News By: Sanjeev Sanyal The world has watched with impotent horror as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) since renamed the Islamic State (IS) took over large parts of Syria and Iraq and went about systematically erasing the region’s social cultural and demographic past Already the IS has virtually eliminated the entire Shia Muslim and Christian populations from the lands they control The city of Mosul home to one of the oldest Christian communities no longer has any Christians left The IS has not even spared Sunni Muslims who do not adhere to their extreme interpretation of Islam Terrible as these may be the worst persecution has been aimed at a tiny community that now faces extinction — the Yazidis They are an ancient religious group that lives among the Kurds of northern Iraq The Yazidi number less than half a million and two-thirds live around Mosul The rest are scattered across Armenia Turkey and Syria (there are also recent immigrant communities in Germany and the US) The Yazidi heartlands around Mosul are now mostly under IS control The Christians of Mosul were given the choice to convert pay the jiziya tax or leave The Yazidis were given no such choice and are often killed on sight as “devil-worshippers” The small town of Sinjar the only place in the world with a Yazidi majority fell to the IS in August and there are several reports of massacres News reports suggest that 500 Yazidis including children were massacred in the town in a single instance many buried alive Hundreds of young women have been enslaved and dozens are said to have killed themselves rather than be captured Meanwhile tens of thousands of refugees have fled into the neighbouring mountains where they are trapped in encircled enclaves When US-backed rescue operations finally broke through to one such enclave on Mt Sinjar they found thousands who had died of thirst Who are the Yazidi and why does the IS want to exterminate them Although influenced by Christianity and Islam the Yazidi religion has ancient roots that go back at least to the late Bronze Age Interestingly their beliefs have many similarities with Hinduism — for instance they believe in reincarnation say their prayers facing the sun at sunrise and sunset etc They also worship Tawuse-Melek the peacock angel — a bird not found in Yazidi lands but only in the Indian subcontinent Once these cultural links would have been explained away in terms of an “Aryan invasion” from Central Asia However we now know that the great Harappan cities were abandoned due to climate change and the drying of the Saraswati river around 2000 BC Most people moved on to the Ganga or went south thereby seeding Indic civilisation But did some groups migrate west There is a lot of evidence of Indian links with the Middle East during the Bronze Age Zoroastrianism the religion of ancient Iran and of their Parsi descendants is clearly related to Vedic religion and the oldest Zoroastrian texts — the Gathas — are composed in a language very close to Rig Vedic Sanskrit Intriguingly there is evidence of an Indian tribe that may have migrated even further west We have details of a treaty between the Hittites and the Mitanni around 1380 BC The Mitanni were a tribe that once ruled over the same area now inhabited by the Yazidi and the treaty invokes the names of Vedic gods Indra Varuna Nasatya and Mitra We also know that the Mitanni were not locals but had come from the east The names of their leaders and several of their military and equestrian terms also appear to be derived from Sanskrit Most intriguingly Mitanni art shows peacocks and peacock-like griffins Are the Yazidis descendants of the Mitanni We do not know for sure but it is certainly an intriguing possibility especially since recent genetic studies show that certain lineages commonly found in northern India are also found in eastern Iran and among the Kurds (no specific data is available on the Yazidi) Over time the Yazidis were dubbed as “devil-worshippers” and subjected to constant persecution It was especially extreme under the Ottoman Turks in the 18th and 19th centuries A series of massacres killed thousands and almost led to their extinction Under Saddam Hussain they were not subjected to overt religious persecution but remained under pressure to Arabise their culture Matters have become much worse since the dictator was deposed In April 2007 gunmen dragged 23 Yazidi men from a bus and shot them dead In August that year a series of coordinated car-bombs killed at least 300 more including women and children The Yazidis now face their greatest crisis Hopefully US-backed air-drops and air-strikes together with a renewed push by Kurdish forces will help rescue the survivors However it remains unclear if and when they will return home So who will give refuge to the Yazidis For centuries many persecuted minorities have found refuge in India: Jews exiled after the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 AD Zoroastrians who fled Iran in the 8th century and Tibetan Buddhists in the 20th Perhaps 21st century Indians should consider providing refuge to their distant

I read everyday where the Democrat party, generally speaking, supports her, but I don’t! Is there a litmus test to be a Democrat?OpinionBy Greg Jackson, Esq.Greg JacksonQuestion: Did anyone get the memo stating that when you register with a political party you must leave your personal beliefs, morals, common sense and opinions at the door? Well, many Democrats, such as myself, have learned that if you do not agree with the direction, leadership or agenda of the party, it is best that you keep quiet or risk being ostracized by party hardliners who oftentimes are found in leadership at the local level. If you voice an opinion that differs from the party’s, no matter if it is based on credible evidence or common sense, you may even be considered “not-a-real-Democrat.” I have learned that when weak or unethical Democrats, who are supported by party “insiders,” run for elected office, you better support them even if their moral and/or ethical shortcomings conflict with your own. If you opt, instead to stand on principal, there is a very good likelihood that you will be considered a troublemaker or even worse marked as a Republican, which in Democrat-speak is next to the worst thing on the planet Earth. Admittedly, the scenarios I am describing are typically based on the actions of the hardcore members of the party. For the most part, Democrats (conservative, moderate, etc.) do not agree with everything the party stands for and will seek common ground with members of other parties to get things done. These efforts to work together are actually very healthy for the future growth of the party. However, the unfortunate reality is that for the most part, the hardcore element of the party is typically the most vocal and garner the most attention. (NOTE: I fully recognize that these same sentiments are felt in the Republican, Libertarian, Green Parties, etc.).As the political landscape changes in Orange County, it is undeniable that the number of Republican voters is declining while Democratic voters’ numbers are inching up slightly. That for the most part is due to the Democratic party spending considerably more time with voter registration. These efforts, help to “pack-the-field” with more democratic minded voters who, when called upon, for the most part will go to the polls and vote for a Democrat. However, what cannot be ignored is that the fastest growing political party in Orange County and across the State is arguably N.P.A., which stands for Non-Party Affiliates. It appears that as party loyalist seek to make it mandatory for its members to blindly follow but not question, people are looking to go to a party where they can speak and vote freely.What parties seem to forget is that politics is merely a process, not a definition of who we are as individuals. In my experience, when people are asked about the things that are most important to them, the order is typically: God, family, country, etc. If they were to become robots of a political party, the list would be: party affiliation, party agenda, party elected officials, and I think you get where I am going. My point is this, first and foremost, in the context of political importance, we are Americans. Our votes, focus and support should, and would be better spent, going with those candidates and ideas that will keep our country at the top of the list of being the greatest country ever to be in existence. Next, parties need to understand that constructive disagreements help us to all become stronger, as a party and as a nation. In the midst of disagreement there is always a happy median, a place where we can work together to better our communities. Next, speaking against the position of a candidate or elected official in your own party is actually healthy and can result in better leadership and support. That is because the ability to recognize shortcomings and honestly addressing those things lends credibility to the party. Instead of being seen as a robot or puppet, you will be viewed as a fair-minded person people can trust to give honest assessments and opinions. Interestingly, Community leaders are always encouraging people “if you see something, say something.” That same concept should be encouraged in politics to help ensure that we get candidates and elected officials who will best serve our communities and collective interest, which is important to the survival and betterment of our nationGreg Jackson is a past Assistant Attorney General for the State of Florida, military veteran, current Orange County District 2 Representative on the Board of Zoning Adjustments, and General Counsel for the Community Redevelopment Agency.
