"A cricket tournament is underway in Madhya Pradesh's Bhopal for Vedic pandits with Sanskrit commentary. Teams from various Vedic institutions are participating in the four-day tournament.

The annual four-day cricket tournament to promote Sanskrit began in Madhya Pradesh's Bhopal on Thursday with 22 Vedic pandits wearing traditional dhoti and kurtas walking onto the cricket pitch to mark the birth anniversary of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

The cricket tournament 'Maharshi Cup' is being held for Vedic pandits on the Ankur ground in Bhopal. Players are those who perform rituals as per the Vedas. They speak to each other in Sanskrit and the match commentary is also in Sanskrit. The umpiring in the game is also done in Sanskrit.

This is the third year of the Maharshi Cup. The goal of organising the four-day tournament is to promote the ancient Sanskrit language and sportsmanship among the Vedic family.

Apart from cash prizes for winning teams, players will also be honoured with Vedic books and a 100-year panchang (almanac), a PTI report said.

"Six months after former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was shot and killed in broad daylight, an indictment looms for the man suspected of being behind the attack.

On July 8, Tetsuya Yamagami allegedly approached Abe from behind during a stump speech in the city of Nara and shot him with a handmade gun. Yamagami, who was arrested on the spot, has reportedly admitted to the shooting, telling investigators that he had held a grudge against Abe over his links to the Unification Church, which is known for its mass weddings and aggressive donation collection practices."
Summary: Study reveals women who experience domestic abuse are three times more likely to contract HIV infection.

Women that experience recent intimate partner violence (IPV) are three times more likely to contract HIV, according to a new study led by McGill University researchers. In regions like Sub-Saharan Africa, women face an intersecting epidemic of intimate partner violence and HIV.

"Worldwide, more than one in four women experience intimate partner violence in their lifetime," says McGill University Professor Mathieu Maheu-Giroux, a Canada Research Chair in Population Health Modeling."

"I will not remain silent while I am unfairly accused of crimes I did not commit," the pop diva known as Mexico's Madonna says after two Jane Does sued her for child sex abuse in Los Angeles."

"GLORIA TREVI HAS issued a forceful denial to the new lawsuit first reported by Rolling Stone that claims she groomed underage girls in the early 1990s for sexual exploitation by her ex-producer Sergio Andrade.

The new complaint filed last Friday in Los Angeles County alleges two Jane Does were 13 and 15 years old when Trevi approached them in public and recruited them for what they claim was a violent sex cult that transported minors to Southern California for some of their alleged abuse.

Trevi, 54, posted her statement on Instagram, saying it was directed to everyone who saw the "tabloid headlines" but may not know "the background" of her story.

"Being a victim of physical and sexual abuse is one of the worst things that can happen to a human being. I say it, and I know it, because I am a survivor. And my thoughts go out to anyone who, like me, has ever been the victim of any kind of abuse," she wrote.

"But I will not remain silent while I am unfairly accused of crimes I did not commit. These false accusations, which were first made against me more than 25 years ago, have been tried in various courts and, in all instances, I have been completely and totally acquitted," she said.

"For these old, disproven claims to resurface now is tremendously painful for me and for all of my family. The accusations were false when they were made and remain false today," she said.

Trevi, often referred to as Mexico's Madonna, was arrested with Andrade in Brazil in 2000 and spent four years in detention awaiting trial on criminal charges stemming from the alleged child sex ring. She was ultimately acquitted when a judge said there was insufficient evidence to support the rape, kidnapping and corruption of minors charges filed against her by Mexican prosecutors. After spending four years awaiting trial, Andrade was convicted of rape, kidnapping and corruption of minors, but ended up spending only one more year behind bars."
