We have made it de rigueur to shun resolutions and uncool to celebrate the arrival of a new year. I'd say it's okay to be a votary of the New Year jamboree just as much it is to be unbothered by it. However, its larger significance cannot be ignored. Every 24 hours of a day that you live to witness mark an important triumph you ought to take pride in.

Former Arsenal player Jamie Day has been appointed as the head coach of the Bangladesh national football team for one year, confirmed the Bangladesh Football Federation (BFF) yesterday, ending the hunt for a new manager approximately six weeks after English-born Australian Andrew Ord suddenly left the position.
