Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

US woman fired for 'may be Obama gets assassinated this term' post on Facebeook

Washington -  An American woman, who posted inflammatory comments on Facebook about President Barack Obama, has been fired from her job and reported to the U.S. Secret Service.

Twenty-two-year-old Denise Helms, from California, posted shortly after Obama was reelected as the President of the U.S.

"And another 4 years of the (n-----). Maybe he will get assassinated this term..!!" she wrote.

The post quickly made the rounds on social media, prompting Sacramento TV station Fox 40 to interview her about her comments.

"I didn't think it would be that big of a deal. ... The assassination part is kind of harsh. I'm not saying like I would go do that or anything like that, by any means, but if it was to happen, I don't think I'd care one bit," she told Fox 40.

According to modbee.com, Helms has since deleted the post and posted again about the incident.

"So apparently my post last night about Obama got onto Twitter and Fox 40 came and interviewed me cause apparently a lot of people in Sacramento think I'm crazy and racist. WOW is all I got to say!! I'm not racist and I'm not crazy. just simply stating my opinion.!!," she said in her new post.

The incident and surrounding outrage, however, caused her to lose her job at ice-cream parlor Cold Stone Creamery, where she had worked for less than a year.
