Philippines hits 10-man Nepal for four
Bikram Lama's handball inside the penalty box cost dear as 10-man Nepal suffered a humiliating 4-1 defeat in the AFC Cup qualifier against Philippines at the Rizal Memorial Stadium in Manila on Tuesday.
Kiran Chemjong saved the resulting spot-kick in the 15th minute but Philippines made the numerical advantage count and went 3-0 up inside 28 minutes. Philip Younghusband scored the opener with another penalty in the 21st minute and added the second two minutes later before Iain Ramsay made it 3-0 in the 28th minute.
Bishal Rai pulled one back for Nepal in the first minute of first-half injury time but Nepal never threatened to catch the hosts and J Patino scored in the 73rd minute to seal a comfortable win for Philippines.
Nepal had got the opportunity to play the qualifiers despite losing to India for winning the AFC Solidarity Cup held last year. Bharat Khawas captained Nepal instead of Biraj Maharjan who was dropped for the match while Nepal was also without star striker Nawayug Shrestha.

The Doklam dilemma
Being a buffer state between the two giant neighbors, Nepal should conduct its foreign policy vis-à-vis China and India in a very sensitive manner. Nepal has always maintained that it would not allow its soil to be used against any neighbor. At the same time, Nepal should make sure that its own national interests are never compromised.

Effect of monetary policy on risk, stability and financial crises
The crisis of 2008–09 has reignited a new interest in understanding money and credit fluctuations in the macro economy, and the crucial roles they could play in the amplification, propagation, and generation of shocks both in normal times and, even more so, in times of financial distress.
