SHOCKER !!! : Brazil press decry World Cup rout




















7 goals had only been put past Brazil in a single match once before, when Yugoslavia beat them 8-4 in a friendly on 3 June 1934. 




No-one had ever scored seven in a FIFA World Cup semi-final though; the previous record was six, with three teams - West Germany being the most recent in 1954 - having managed that.



 Low's side also registered the highest-ever margin of victory in the last four, with five goals having held the record prior to today. 




Only once before had seven goals been scored in a knockout match, when Austria beat hosts Switzerland 7-5 in the highest-scoring World Cup match of all time back in 1954. That was also the only previous occasion, prior to tonight, that a World Cup host team had conceded seven goals in a single match.

Brazil's national media quickly dubbed the football team's 7-1 defeat to Germany on Tuesday the "Shame of Shames" and the most humiliating defeat in the squad's history.






Newspapers and TV commentators called the defeat the "Mineirazo," an allusion to the Mineirao Stadium in Belo Horizonte and Brazil's traumatic FIFA World Cup™ defeat at home in 1950 known as the "Maracanazo."





The sport's daily Lance called Tuesday's crushing loss "The Biggest Shame in History."









"The Maracanazo becomes nothing and literally a thing of the past," the newspaper said on its website.







The top of Folha de Sao Paulo newspaper's website was titled "Historic Shame" after Brazil suffered its worst defeat in the national team's 100-year history.






"Brazil is humiliated again trying to win the cup at home,"
the daily said.





The G1 news website quotes Brazilian manager Luiz Felipe Scolari saying "catastrophic result".






Its sister sports publication Globoesporte.com called it the "Shame of Shames".

THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER MANGOES IN THE WORLD ....

While "Flavor" is very subjective, and each country that grows mangoes is very nationalistic, these are the mango varieties that are the most sought after around the world because of sweetnesss (Brix) and demand.

The Chaunsa has a Brix rating in the 22 degree level which is unheard of!
Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.
Perhaps it is time for a GLOBAL taste test ???

Mangoes date back 65 million years according to research ...

Experts at the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotany (BSIP) here have traced the origin of mango to the hills of Meghalaya, India from a 65 million year-old fossil of a mango leaf. 





The earlier fossil records of mango (Mangifera indica) from the Northeast and elsewhere were 25 to 30 million years old. The 'carbonized leaf fossil' from Damalgiri area of Meghalaya hills, believed to be a mango tree from the peninsular India, was found by Dr R. C. Mehrotra, senior scientist, BSIP and his colleagues. 




After careful analysis of the fossil of the mango leaf and leaves of modern plants, the BISP scientist found many of the fossil leaf characters to be similar to mangifera.


An extensive study of the anatomy and morphology of several modern-day species of the genus mangifera with the fossil samples had reinforced the concept that its centre of origin is Northeast India, from where it spread into neighbouring areas, says Dr. Mehrotra. 




The genus is believed to have disseminated into neighb…

INDIA 2016 : Mango production in state likely to take a hit this year

TNN | May 22, 2016, 12.32 PM IST






Mangaluru: Vagaries of nature is expected to take a toll on the production of King of Fruits - Mango - in Karnataka this year. A combination of failure of pre-monsoon showers at the flowering and growth stage and spike in temperature in mango growing belt of the state is expected to limit the total production of mango to an estimated 12 lakh tonnes in the current season as against 14 lakh tonnes in the last calendar year.



However, the good news for fruit lovers is that this could see price of mangoes across varieties decrease marginally by 2-3%. This is mainly on account of 'import' of the fruit from other mango-growing states in India, said M Kamalakshi Rajanna, chairperson, Karnataka State Mango Development and Marketing Corporation Ltd.




Karnataka is the third largest mango-growing state in India after Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.
