Lonesome Ghosts

Lonesome Ghosts is a 1937 Disney animated cartoon, released through RKO Radio Pictures on December 24, 1937, three days after Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. It was directed by Burt Gillett and animated by Izzy Klein, Ed Love, Milt Kahl, Marvin Woodward, Bob Wickersham, Clyde Geronimi, Dick Huemer, Dick Williams, Art Babbitt and Rex Cox; the short features Mickey Donald Duck and Goofy as members of The Ajax Ghost Exterminators. The Ajax Ghost Exterminators - Mickey and Goofy - are hired by telephone to drive out four ghosts from a haunted house that has long been abandoned. Unbeknownst to them, they were hired by the ghosts themselves, who are bored because nobody has visited the house since they had been haunting for a long time, they wish to play tricks on the living, do so through a series of inventive, annoying pranks. The exterminators knock on the front door, which falls down; when they announce themselves, there is nobody to receive them. Mickey decides; when entering, the door throws them inside before putting itself back in place.

After hearing the ghosts' laughter, the three split up to hunt the ghosts individually. The exterminators are toyed with at every turn. Mickey is driven upstairs and tries to open a door that the ghost disappears into, which falls down and the ghosts come out of the fallen door and go into another. Mickey opens the door, which causes water to poor out of it while the ghosts surf across it on surfboards; the last one comes out on a motorboat that goes around Mickey until it and the water disappear altogether. Donald, meanwhile, is whacked with a wooden board and is scared away by the sounds of banging chains and dishes. Goofy, in a bedroom, becomes tangled in a dresser and stabs his own rear with a pin, mistaking his blue pants for a ghost and is shoved down into the basement. In the end, the three exterminators accidentally become covered in molasses and flour, making them look like ghosts and scaring the actual ghosts out of the house in a panic; the ghost hunters stand victorious, having driven the spirits out of the house, although not certain how.

Wayne Mardle

Wayne Elliot Mardle is an English retired professional darts player for the Professional Darts Corporation events, former player in the BDO. He now lives in Romford. Before turning professional, he worked for the Association of Accounting Technicians, he has been known as "Hawaii 501" since 2000, a play on the title of the popular television series, Hawaii Five-O, due to the Hawaiian shirts he started wearing in 1998 for a bet, 501 being the start score of a leg of darts. This dress sense coupled with his crowd-pleasing onstage activity saw him become one of the most popular players on the circuit. Wayne started playing darts at the age of 11, his first 180 came two weeks. He soon became better than his dad, his first competition win was in a pub called the'Double Top' on his 13th birthday in 1986, his Lakeside debut came in 2000. In 2001 he reached the Semi Finals, beating Co Stompé and Ronnie Baxter before losing to eventual winner John Walton, his attempt in 2002 saw. Mardle joined the Professional Darts Corporation in time for the 2003 World Championship.

His first appearance at the Circus Tavern saw. His debut at Blackpool's Winter Gardens in the World Matchplay was much better, beating World Champion John Part, Alan Warriner and Colin Lloyd to reach the final, where he again lost to Taylor. Mardle had until 2010, played in every Premier League except for 2007 due to poor form and disappointing results. 2005 and 2006 did not go well, he finished bottom of the table in both years.. Despite a poor 2006 and 2007, he found his form at the 2008 World Championship, ending Taylor's record of reaching every PDC World Darts Championship final on 29 December 2007 by defeating him 5 sets to 4 in a quarter-final match having trailed 3–0. Following his victory, he showed great emotion at defeating "The Power" on TV. Mardle was beaten in the semi-finals for the fourth time in his PDC career by 21-year-old qualifier Kirk Shepherd, he said this was the worst defeat of his career, citing his own attitude as "disgusting". In January 2008 Mardle was confirmed as the Sky Sports wildcard entry to the 2008 PDC Darts Premier League following his impressive performance at the World Championships.

Whilst this decision was questioned by some, Mardle proved the doubters wrong with a steady campaign which saw him finish in fifth place, missing out on the Play-Offs by just two legs to Adrian Lewis. Whilst he has reached fifth in the World Rankings and performed well in the World Championship, he never won a major tournament as a member of the PDC, he has always seemed to suffer from what Sid Waddell called the "Mardle Drift", which sees his Darts continually land in 5 and Treble 5 instead of the 20/Treble 20. Mardle suffered hard luck during the 2009 Premier League. After amassing just four points from his opening nine games, he missed week ten due to a virus, he had been due to return the following week, but was rushed into hospital the day before the matches due to mumps. With five matches to play in the final three weeks, one more missed week would eliminate Mardle from the competition. Sadly for Mardle, that occurred. Having been passed fit for a week twelve return, Mardle was re-admitted to hospital, in accordance with tournament regulations, was removed from the tournament.

His results from the tournament were annulled. Mardle's poor form continued in the 2010 PDC World Championship, where he lost to Jyhan Artut 3–0 with a poor average of 72. Mardle was ranked as low as 85th in the Order of Merit. Mardle attempted to qualify for the 2012 PDC World Championship via the PDPA qualifier, held in Wigan and was whitewashed 5–0 in the Preliminary Round by Ken Dobson. Mardle's slide down the world rankings meant he was no longer assured of a PDC tour card to play on the Pro Tour, had to enter the Q School to try and earn one. However, on the eve of the first Q School qualifier, Mardle announced on his Twitter page that he had decided not to go to Q School and instead focus on commentating for Sky Sports and playing in exhibitions. Mardle made his commentating debut for the PDC at the 2011 PDC World Darts Championship, working alongside Sid Waddell in a few matches, he co-presented some of the event with Dave Clark and predicting some of the match results with Rod Harrington and Eric Bristow.

Mardle continued his analyzing and commentary career at the 2011 Premier League Darts apart from weeks 3, 5, 9, 10, 11 and 14. He continued his commentary career in the 2012 PDC World Darts Championship, where he co-commentated on every night of the televised event, he has since become a regular on all Sky televised tournaments both as a commentator during matches and as the main pundit in the studio portions of the show. During the World Championships Mardle has regular segments where he rewards crowd participation, either dancing, fancy dress outfits or funny signs, with a "Wayne's World" T-shirt. Alongside his successful darts career, away from the oche Mardle has been a keen advocate for the support of players suffering from dartitis. In 2013 Mardle spoke about former 5 Time World Champion Eric Bristow and outlined that Dartitis was "the fear of throwing the dart" and emphasised how it "must've been awful" for Bristow, it is this support that has earned Mardle plaudits from many within the darting circle for his well articulated support and awareness on the subject.

In 2017 Mardle threw his considerable s

India women's national football team

The India women's national football team is controlled by the All India Football Federation and represents India in women's international football competitions. The women's team resumed playing on 7 September 2012 after nearly a year-long hiatus. Under the global jurisdiction of FIFA and governed in Asia by the AFC, the team is part of the South Asian Football Federation; the team was one of the best teams in Asia in the mid 70s to early 80s, when they became runners-up at 1979 and 1983 AFC Women's Asian Cup. Presently, the Indian team has won all the SAFF Women's Championship that they have participated in since 2010; the team has yet to participate in the FIFA Women's World Cup and Olympic Games, failed to participate in the last 5 Asian Cups since 2003 at Thailand, as their last participation. Present ranking of the team according to FIFA Women's World Rankings is 57 and 13th among the Asian countries. Football for women in Asia started compared to their male counterparts; the seed of women's football in India was planted in the early 1970s.

The first manager was Sushil Bhattacharya, in 1975 and from 1975 till 1991, the administration of the game was in the hands of the Women's Football Federation of India which comes under the Asian Ladies’ Football Confederation that had recognition from neither Fifa nor AFC. Both organizations continuously tried to dissuade Asian countries from sending teams to these tournaments for which the first few editions of AFC Women's Asian Cup other unofficial tournaments seen few teams to participate and thus the 1980 Calicut edition of Asian Championship featured two Indian teams, Western Australia, Hong Kong and Malaysia. India did well enough in all these unofficial tournaments under Sushil Bhattacharya and India S become runners-up at Calicut. In the next edition of 1981 India achieved third position, defeated by Thailand and again became runners-up in the 1983 edition losing to Thailand again; this was the best chapter for the Indian women team in the Asian platform as since 1983 the performance declined along with mismanagement in the federation and failing to promote the games at all level in every state of India.

The game was administered by WFFI from 1975 until the early 1990s, when they were absorbed into the AIFF as despite their impressive display at the Asian level, women's football in India went into the state of gloom by the end of the eighties due to the previous federation failure of promoting the women's football to the level it had deserved. But the AIFF too did less to lift the women's football from their meager condition, it was the time when FIFA conceptualised and organised FIFA Women's World Cup in 1991 and International Olympic Committee started the women's competition at 1996 Summer Olympics. Time and again, the AIFF officials stated that lifting the standard of women's football to the level of their Asian counterparts was their chief aim but they never backed up their words with actions. AIFF was treating women's football as an extra burden was a fact, hidden from no one but it became evident when they failed to sponsor the team's first foreign trip in 1997 to Germany before the Asian Championships.

The trip was made with the help of the German Football Association and NRI's living in Germany.1998 Asian Games was first participation for the national team but came out to be nightmare as they defeated by Chinese Taipei with a score line of 1-13 in the second match and again on the 3rd match they faced the biggest defeat in the history by China PR with an embarrassing scoreline of 0-16. The women's game reached a new low in June 2009 when FIFA delisted the side from its world rankings for being out of action for more than 18 months. From 1991 to 2010 the performance of the Indian team was poor, participating in just 5 editions of Asian Championships, 2003 as their last participation in which they faced a repeated embarrassing defeat with 0-12 scoreline from China PR. FIFA Women's World Cup and Olympics participation is yet be a reality for the Indian team. After 2009 sanction by FIFA, the AIFF started to put their minds in place to better the condition of the national team and women's football, which led to commencing SAFF Women's Championship and including women's football in the South Asian Games.

Indian team earn massive success in SAFF competitions. Winning the SAFF Women's Championship four times in row without losing a single game. Additionally they won two gold medals at South Asian Games. On 17 December 2014, AIFF Secretary Kushal Das stated that the goal for women's football from 2014 to 2017 was to increase the ranking of the India senior team to the top 40s and the top 8 in Asia, start a professional women's league by 2015, to qualify for both the U19 and U16 versions of the AFC championships. Which is now far from reality as India is 60th by FIFA World Rankings and 13th among the Asian countries and yet to qualify for AFC Women's Asian Cup since 2003, FIFA Women's World Cup and Olympic Games, they participated in the qualifiers for the 2012 Olympics in March 2011. In their first match they beat rivals and group hosts Bangladesh 3–0. In the second round India Women played Uzbekistan where they tied the first match 1–1 but lost the second leg 1–5 and were knocked out. Again for Rio 2016 Olympics they participated in the AFC qualifiers, first match was a win defeating Sri Lanka with score 4−1 shocking defeat from Myanmar with a score line 0-7 which led the way out from the qualifiers.

India participated for the second time at the Asian games in 2014, but the condition was not better than the previous participation, 16 years back in 1998. Though India defeated Maldives with 15-0 score, but a similar fate of Maldives was faced by them in the next two matches where
