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.

Obama's favourite burger joint shutters up over landlord dispute

Washington - Popular US burger restaurant Ray's Hell Burger has closed two of its locations due to a landlord dispute.

Ray's Hell-Burger rose to international prominence after President Barack Obama dined there twice.

He first dined with Vice President Joe Biden in 2009 and again with Russian president Dmitry Medvedev a year later, the Huffington Post reports.

The cult-followed burger joints, helmed by acclaimed chef Michael Landrum, announced their temporary closure due to a 'landlord-tenant dispute' in January.

At that time, Landrum described the episode as a 'very minor blip.'

But the real estate company responsible for the properties, located in Rosslyn's Colonial Village Shopping Center, confirmed that the two shuttered units are indeed now available for lease, the report said.
