Travel Umroh bulan Mei

saco-indonesia.com, Peluang Arsenal untuk dapat menjadi juara Premier League telah kembali diragukan usai kali terakhir mereka dijungkalkan oleh Manchester City dengan skor 6-3 di Etihad Stadium. Arsene Wenger selaku pelatih utama tim rupanya maklum akan hal tersebut.

Sang pelatih telah menyebut itu sebagai hal yang biasa dan timnya harus belajar untuk bisa menghadapi keraguan semacam itu.

"Saat ini semua orang juga masih meragukan kami. Kami juga sudah lama tidak memenangkannya (gelar Premier League) untuk waktu yang lama, itulah mengapa banyak yang meremehkan kami," jelas Wenger pada halaman resmi klub.

"Hal tersebut telah membuat anda tertekan namun anda tidak bisa bermain di Premier League tanpa mengalami tekanan. Ada satu masa di mana tekanan menjadi lebih besar dan masa lain ketika tekanan sedikit mengendur. Anda juga harus hidup dengan itu dan melawan tekanan yang ada," tutup Wenger.

Dini hari nanti Arsenal juga akan menghadapi Chelsea di Emirates Stadium. Kemenangan akan jadi wajib untuk tuan rumah andai mereka ingin kembali merebut puncak klasemen dari Liverpool.

KATHMANDU, Nepal — When the dense pillar of smoke from cremations by the Bagmati River was thinning late last week, the bodies were all coming from Gongabu, a common stopover for Nepali migrant workers headed overseas, and they were all of young men.

Hindu custom dictates that funeral pyres should be lighted by the oldest son of the deceased, but these men were too young to have sons, so they were burned by their brothers or fathers. Sukla Lal, a maize farmer, made a 14-hour journey by bus to retrieve the body of his 19-year-old son, who had been on his way to the Persian Gulf to work as a laborer.

“He wanted to live in the countryside, but he was compelled to leave by poverty,” Mr. Lal said, gazing ahead steadily as his son’s remains smoldered. “He told me, ‘You can live on your land, and I will come up with money, and we will have a happy family.’ ”

Weeks will pass before the authorities can give a complete accounting of who died in the April 25 earthquake, but it is already clear that Nepal cannot afford the losses. The countryside was largely stripped of its healthy young men even before the quake, as they migrated in great waves — 1,500 a day by some estimates — to work as laborers in India, Malaysia or one of the gulf nations, leaving many small communities populated only by elderly parents, women and children. Economists say that at some times of the year, one-quarter of Nepal’s population is working outside the country.
