DC vs SRH, IPL 2019: Feroz Shah Kotla is Sunrisers Hyderabad’s fortressIndian Premier League: Delhi Capitals face a stiff test against Sunrisers Hyderabad, who have a brilliant record at the former’s home ground — Feroz Shah Kotla.advertisement India Today Web Desk New DelhiApril 4, 2019UPDATED: April 4, 2019 17:01 IST IPL 2019, DC vs SRH: David Warner and Jonny Bairstow have given Sunrisers Hyderabad flying starts in the season (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSSunrisers Hyderabad have a 8-4 head-to-head record against Delhi Capitals in IPLSunrisers Hyderabad have played seven and won five of them at the Feroz Shah KotlaDelhi Capitals host Sunrisers Hyderabad in their third home game of IPL 2019 on ThursdayDelhi Capitals are heading into their fifth match of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 on the back of a demotivating collapse against Kings XI Punjab on April 1. The Capitals were cruising towards a 167-run target but they lost their last seven wickets for eight runs to slump to their second defeat in as many games.Delhi Capitals, on Thursday, will face another stern test as they host Sunrises Hyderabad at the Feroz Shah Kotla. Sunrisers have landed in Delhi on the back of a two-match winning streak, which includes a 118-run win over Royal Challengers Bangalore on March 31.Sunrisers Hyderabad will be hoping to make it three wins in as many matches and they will gain confidence from their excellent record at the Capitals’ home ground Feroz Shah Kotla.In seven matches, the Sunrisers have won five at the iconic venue. In fact, their win percentage at Kotla is 71.42, which is better than their record at home (66.66). Sunrisers have a positive head-to-head record of 8-4 against the Delhi Capitals in IPL.The Sunrisers completed a double over Delhi Capitals (then Delhi Daredevils) in IPL 2018, clinching big wins on both occasions. At the Kotla, Rishabh Pant’s dazzling hundred had helped the Daredevils post 187 on the board but a 176-run unbeaten stand between Shikhar Dhawan and Kane Williamson saw the Sunrisers gun down the target with seven balls to spare.Will in-form Warner, Bairstow continue fine form?The Delhi Capitals need a solid bowling performance on Thursday if they are to stop the Sunrisers Hyderabad juggernaut. In fact, David Warner and Jonny Bairstow, the two SRH openers, have stitched 100-plus stands in all the three matches they have played so far in IPL 2019.advertisementNotably, the Sunrisers Hyderabad have not lost a wicket in the powerplay overs in all their three matches and they are the only team to have done so.However, Sunrisers Hyderabad will be concerned about their bowling unit, especially pace leader Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s form. The India pacer is yet to open his account in IPL 2019 and has conceded aplenty. In fact, he didn’t even complete his quota of four overs in their big win over Royal Challengers Bangalore.On the other hand, Delhi Capitals’ veteran leg-spinner Amit Mishra is eyeing a major landmark as he will become only the second bowler after Lasith Malinga to pick up 150 wickets in IPL cricket if he adds one more to his tally. Mishra was rested for the Kings XI Punjab tie on April 1 but expect the leg-spinner to be back in the playing XI when Delhi play their fifth match of the season on Thursday.Also Read | Jos Buttler reacts to R Ashwin Mankading incident: The wrong decision was madeAlso Read | There are some chinks in Virat Kohli’s batting against spinners: VVS LaxmanAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Editors’ Recommendations Tavis Beck/ UnsplashRe-watching Point Break (the original, not the abomination of a remake) inspired equal parts envy over Johnny Utah’s and Bodhi’s badass surfing skills and their rad, salt-baked, wind-whipped manes. After all, the artfully rumpled surfer hairstyle strikes just the right balance between scruffy and overly groomed, making it perfect for summer. “It’s a much lower maintenance style for guys who enjoy a free and adventurous lifestyle,” explains Baxter Finley barbers Erik Taylor and Carmen Serna. “There is not much upkeep so it’s great when you’re on-the-go or want to spend less time on styling.”While the most obvious method for replicating their Cali beach bum texture is to actually get up on a board, salty seawater does tend to leave locks parched and crispy. To avoid these adverse effects and assist those who want the look, but have no intention of riding a wave or even lounging by the shore, we asked Taylor and Serna how to fake a beachin’ texture.Length Matters“Your hair needs to be long enough to run your hands through it,” says Taylor. As long as you have some length, whether it’s just on top or all over, you can easily rock this style.Adjust for LengthBecause the goal is to get texture without any excessive crunch, modify the amount of texturizing spray you use based on your hair. That can vary from three pumps for shorter, finer hair to eight for thicker, longer manes. “You want to use just enough to leave your hair with a lived-in look,” says Serna.Mess It UpYou don’t want to smooth over this style, so skip the comb and up the dishevelment a bit by roughing your hair up with your hands. If you’re taking the beach bum look more literally and not washing your hair for a day or two, you can refresh it by hitting it with a spritz or two of texturizing spray.Here are a few products to help you score the look sans swells.Best Surfer Hair ProductsTriumph & Disaster Karekare Sea Salt Spray – $28Containing Epsom salt, sea beet, and willow hHerb, this sea salt spray hair tonic from Triumph & Disaster, a New Zealand grooming brand, removes excess oil, volumizes hair, and nourishes the scalp, all while offering that textured, sun-kissed look every wannabe surfer aspires to.Get ItBaxter of California Clay Effect Spray – $27Serna and Taylor helped develop this clay-in-a-spray, which offers hair the right amount of grit and thickness without making it feel fried thanks to a blend of natural oils.Get ItLavett & Chin Sea Salt Texturizing Mist – $35 The Best Travel and Adventure Documentaries on Netflix Right Now The Best Netflix Food Documentaries to Savor Right Now How Often Should You Wash Your Hair? We Asked the Experts 16 Best Action Movies on Netflix Right Now One of the founders of this indie brand personally wanted a product that could deliver devil-may-care hair and so he made one, a sea salt- and algae- infused mist.Get ItByrd The Texturizing Surfspray – $16Because salt water provides hair with the desired texture but saps it of moisture, this spray is rich in hydrating coconut water and sea buckthorn extract. Bonus: It’s scented with sea salt, coconuts, and pineapple so your hair smells as if you’ve been sitting seaside sipping on a tropical cocktail.Get ItR+Co Rockaway Salt Spray – $26This spray roughs up your hair in a way that suggests you spent the day at Rockaway Beach (hence the name) while a blend of Sicilian lemon, tangerine, and tree moss makes it smell like you summered on the Amalfi Coast.Get ItNow that you’ve got the right hair, it’s time to book the right surfing vacation.Article originally published by Katie Dickens on July 25, 2017.

PARIS – Brawls have broken out in French supermarkets as shoppers scramble to get their hands on discounted jars of chocolate and hazelnut spread.Chaotic scenes were filmed in several supermarkets across the country operated by the Intermarche chain, which offered massive discounts on jars of Nutella.The promotion, launched on Thursday, reduced the price of more than a million 950-gram jars from 4.70 euros ($5.85) to 1.41 ($1.75).In one video posted on Twitter, customers are seen shoving each other and shouting as they try to get as many jars as possible. According to Le Parisien newspaper, shoppers started to fight in the northern town of Ostricourt, prompting police to step in.Intermarche did not immediately answer a message from The Associated Press seeking comments. Ferrero, the company that produces Nutella, decried the incidents and distanced itself from the supermarket chain.“We want to clarify that the decision for the special offer was taken unilaterally by Intermarche,” the company said in a statement. “We regret the consequences of this operation, which created confusion and disappointment in the consumers’ minds.”The discount was meant to last until Saturday but stocks ran out very quickly at many supermarkets. Sales went smoothly in some places, however, with no incidents reported in several supermarkets taking part in the promotion.
Colombo: The Sri Lankan authorities on Monday enforced a six-hour countrywide curfew as communal violence continued to spread in the island nation in the latest fallout from the Easter Sunday suicide bombings, which killed nearly 260 people. “The curfew has been imposed from 9 p.m. tonight to 4 a.m. tomorrow,” a police spokesperson said. Earlier in the day, the police reimposed a curfew, few hours after it was lifted, on four towns of Kuliyapitiya, Bingiriya, Dummalasuriya and Hettipola in the north western region till 4 a.m. tomorrow following a communal clash in the area.

Security forces are working tirelessly to apprehend terrorists and ensure the security of the country, but each time there is civil unrest, we increase their burden and hamper ongoing investigations,” he said.

The blockade of Facebook and WhatsApp comes a day after Sri Lankan police imposed curfew in the country’s western coastal town of Chilaw where a mob attacked a mosque and some shops owned by Muslims in a dispute that started on a Facebook post by a Muslim shop owner. The violence is a new backlash from the Easter attacks where nine suicide bombers, including a woman, carried out a series of devastating blasts that tore through three churches and three luxury hotels, killing 253 people and injuring over 500 others. The Islamic State terror group claimed the attacks, but the government blamed local Islamist extremist group (NTJ).
They were arrested for violating the Foreigners Act by being in the country without proper travel documents. They were part of a group of 151 Sri Lankan Tamils, including women and children, who were about to be smuggled out in a crude fishing boat to Australia. They said they had paid money ranging from Rs.50,000 to Rs.1 lakh to agents of human traffickers for getting them to Australia.

But 15 men who directly came from Sri Lanka without any travel documents were arrested.

To date, there have been four confirmed and 52 suspected cases of the disease in Benin, resulting in 17 deaths – two of them health workers. One of the confirmed cases is a 4-month-old child currently under treatment in Tchaourou, in the north-east of the country, the two agencies said in a joint press release.The agencies noted that Government authorities have been on the alert since early January, when a pregnant woman with symptoms of the disease died and six health workers in the same hospital in central Benin showed similar symptoms. Earlier this month, several more cases were tested by the Nigerian reference laboratory and another three turned out to be positive.With support from WHO, UNICEF and humanitarian partners, national authorities in Benin have taken emergency measures in response to the outbreak, including setting up quarantine units in affected areas to isolate and treat victims; establishing a contact tracing system to find those who might have been exposed to the disease; and mobilizing a network of almost 200 community health workers across the country to monitor the contacts.Authorities in the country have also been repositioning Ribavirin, known to be effective against the disease, in the capital city of Cotonou and in affected areas, and distributing personal protection equipment for health-care workers. In addition, a public awareness campaign with messages broadcast by local radio and television and through online media has been launched. According to WHO, , Lassa fever is an acute viral haemorrhagic illness caused by Lassa virus, a member of the arenavirus family of viruses. It is transmitted to humans from contacts with food or household items contaminated with rodent faeces. The disease is endemic in the rodent population in parts of West Africa. The virus can also be transmitted by contact with an infected person via biological liquids: blood, urine, saliva, sperm, vomit or faeces. The incubation period of the virus is six to 21 days.The first symptoms of the disease are fever, physical fatigue, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, headaches, abdominal pains, sore throat. Neck or facial swelling can sometimes be observed. Ribavirin is an efficient treatment to fight the Lassa fever if it is administered as soon as the first signs appear.The agencies recommend the following measures to enhance prevention: from the very first signs, it is imperative to immediately go to the nearest health centre; wash hands regularly with water and soap; ensure an adequate protection of food stocks and leftovers at home; avoid the manipulation and consumption of rats; avoid contact with any person suspected or confirmed with the Lassa fever; stay away from faeces, urine, saliva, vomit and contaminated objects of a person suspected, confirmed or declared dead of the Lassa fever; do not touch the body of a person suspected of having died from the Lassa Fever, even during funerary ceremonies.To date, an ongoing epidemic in neighbouring Nigeria has seen 175 cases, 101 deaths and 70 confirmed cases in 19 states including Niger and Oyo states, sharing a border with Benin.Benin was hit by a Lassa fever outbreak between October 2014 and January 2015. At that time, 16 cases were registered and nine people died. Among the casualties, two were confirmed to be Lassa fever. Relevant authorities declared the end of the epidemic per international sanitary regulations which recommend the observance of two periods of 21 days during which no new case is registered.
“Globalisation is delivering new opportunities – but increasing economic and social inequalities, heightening citizens’ anxieties and putting pressure on social cohesion; climate change is exacerbating severe weather events like hurricanes and storms,” said Mr. Guterres, adding: “The international community must raise the level of its response to all these complex threats; multilateralism and regional cooperation will be critical to a peaceful and prosperous future.” In his remarks, the UN chief, also voiced deep concern over the displacement of hundreds of thousands of refugees from Myanmar to Bangladesh and said that it is a “worrying escalation in a protracted tragedy,” a potential source of instability in the region, as well as radicalization. “Addressing the underlying issues by implementing the recommendations of the Advisory Commission on Rakhine will also be critical to reverse this tragedy,” he stressed, highlighting that sustainable and inclusive development is the best way to prevent both conflict and violent extremism. “That is at the heart of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, our blueprint for a safe and prosperous future on a healthy planet, and central to the ASEAN Community Vision 2025,” he added. Further in his remarks, the UN chief noted the region’s economic growth has lifted millions out of extreme poverty, recalled its performance on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), and expressed hope that the region would continue to bring shared prosperity to millions more. “Strengthened partnerships with regional organizations, including ASEAN, are a priority for me, and a critical pillar of my proposals to reform the UN,” he stated, adding that the UN stands ready to cooperate with the region to strengthen human rights. UN chief meets with ASEAN leadersAlso today, Secretary-General Guterres held a meeting with Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, the State Counsellor of Myanmar, where they discussed, the situation in the country’s Rakhine state.According to a read out issued by Mr. Guterres’ spokesperson, the UN chief “highlighted that strengthened efforts to ensure humanitarian access, safe, dignified, voluntary and sustained returns, as well as true reconciliation between communities, would be essential.” The Secretary-General also stressed the importance of implementing the Rakhine Advisory Commission recommendations. Mr. Guterres also met Monday with the Prime Ministers of the Lao People’s Democratic Republic and Viet Nam, and with the President of Indonesia.
