It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!”
Emissions have been falling gradually in recent years in most of the developed countries, in part because of economic weakness but also because of strengthening climate policies.

Emissions decreased sharply in Britain, Italy and Spain.

Every great detective needs his or her definitive story. For Sherlock Holmes it was The Hound of the Baskervilles. For Agatha Christie’s fussy Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot it’s Murder on the Orient Express – a tale in which a bloodthirsty villain kills a wealthy businessman during a train journey through the Balkans. Or are things really what they seem? Sidney Lumet made a beloved film out of the story in 1974, with a stunning cast that included Sean Connery, Ingrid Bergman and Albert Finney as Poirot. Now Kenneth Branagh is donning the Belgian’s moustache himself, as well as stepping behind the camera as director, in his glossy new big-screen version, starring Johnny Depp, Daisy Ridley, Michelle Pfeiffer, Penelope Cruz and Dame Judi Dench. Is there something new that can be mined from this story? Maybe. But even if not, Christie fans will surely want to climb aboard. Released November 3 in the UK, November 10 in the US, China and Turkey, and November 30 in China's Hong Kong and Singapore. (Credit: 20th Century Fox)

His astounding domestic run had veterans and analysts talking about him during the buildup to IPL 2020, especially with Suresh Raina opting out of the season. And despite little match practice amid his extended quarantine period, Gaikwad was given a go, but in the middle-order, in CSK's second and third game. Playing away from his natural position of opening, Gaikwad registered scores of 0 and 5.
He was dropped eventually, and returned only after a month, when CSK's season was all but over. With an eye on the next season already, the management wanted to take a look at available options, mostly youngsters. Gaikwad returned, in place of a struggling Shane Watson, for the game against Mumbai Indians earlier this week. But was dismissed by Trent Boult for a golden duck in the first ball of the game, on a night when CSK were humiliated by the defending champions.
Dhoni continued to back Gaikwad and gave him another go as an opener in the game against Royal Challengers Bangalore in Dubai on Sunday.
