These 4 zodiac signs throw the biggest tantrums and are the hardest to deal with. Are you on the list? | The Times of India

Yes, the perfectionist of the astrology universe is also one of the biggest tantrums throwers. If you think about it, there is a good reason for the same. A typical Virgo spends a lot of time inside its own head and its perfectionist tendencies don’t do it a whole lot of good either. As a result, they subconsciously expect people around them to reward them for their emotional labour and thoughtfulness, which is not a very good idea. If you ever spot a Virgo who is struggling with temper and throwing tantrums, the best idea will be to leave them alone for a while, instead of talking over them. This zodiac sign doesn’t exactly like people preaching him. Source link

Olympic athletes must explore ‘dignified’ protest: Thomas Bach | More sports News – Times of India

Thomas Bach. (Getty Images)LAUSANNE: Olympic chief Thomas Bach on Wednesday refused to be drawn on athletes taking a knee in protest against racism, insisting the body representing them must explore ways they can express themselves "in a dignified way".
