first_imgLast time you heard from me, I was headed to Strata, excited to be announcing the coming of the Dell EMC Ready Bundle for Hortonworks Hadoop. This week at DATAWORKS SUMMIT, I’m proud to announce it has arrived.  The Dell EMC Ready Bundle for Hortonworks Hadoop was released for general availability last week – it is now available! This solution is uniquely delivering real value to customers, focusing on three key pain points:Faster time to value to get to a fully-implemented solution: Dell EMC delivers an end-to-end solution guide to simplify the architecture, use case and configuration for customersReduce the risk: The Dell EMC Ready Bundle for Hortonworks Hadoop enables increased productivity with the delivery of a certified architecture and infrastructure guideControl costs: Realize greater return on investment by reducing the total cost of ownership while seamlessly integrating with existing investmentsWhile this is valuable, customers that want to leverage Hadoop often do not know the critical pieces needed to make it real for the business. The business needs to see the value of investing in new technologies like Hadoop. When I say “value,” what I really mean is do more with less. Bill Schmarzo, Dell EMC’s Dean of Big Data, has a great saying when talking to the business folks about Hadoop, “Don’t make it about the 3-Vs, for the business it has to be about-Make Me More Money!”If you’re ready to “show the business the money”, then please come have a conversation with the Dell EMC and Hortonworks folks at the DATAWORKS SUMMIT.Let’s start with a business problem that is an issue across many vertical markets –- data management. Gartner research found that 70% of all Enterprise Data Warehouses (EDW) are performance and capacity constrained.  Software processes that clean and transform data before it can be used are eating up way too many resources in the EDW.  Gartner says that up to 80% of the EDW capacity is being driven by data integration and transformation jobs.[1] This results in longer data ingestion and preparation times, inability to meet SLAs for business reporting and excessively long ad hoc query response times leading to fewer business insights. This is a pain of which both Hortonworks and Dell EMC are keenly aware.Many people only think about Hadoop only in terms of data storage and analytics, however Hadoop Distributed File System and MapReduce together with technology from Syncsort form a high performance data cleaning and transformation alternative to the “best practices” for traditional EDW ETL approaches.“Enterprise Data Warehouse has become an organization’s central data repository built to support business decisions. Yet, the complexity and volume of data poses significant challenges to the efficiency of the existing EDW solution, causing a huge impact to the business. Hortonworks is excited to partner with Dell EMC to help solve this problem with the Dell EMC Ready Bundle for Hortonworks Hadoop in the ETL Offload use case configuration.”   – Nadeem Asghar, Field CTO and Global Head of Technical Alliances/Partner Engineering at HortonworksWe will be highlighting the Dell EMC Ready Bundle for Hortonworks Hadoop in the ETL Offload use case configuration with Syncsort at the DATAWORKS SUMMIT.  Let us show you how it is uniquely suited to solve this business problem with lower cost and more performance than traditional ETL approaches.It’s been 7 years since the initial release of Hadoop Version 1 by the Apache Software foundation but there is still a shortage of people with experience in all aspects of Hadoop including design, implementation and operation.  Since 2011, Dell EMC has helped organizations solve this Hadoop skills gap by providing expert guidance and knowhow to streamline the architecture, design, planning, and configuration of Hadoop ETL environments.  Dell EMC and Hortonworks help customers by-Removing Barriers-Avoid code generation, making it easier to deploy and maintain with no performance impactFast Tracking Projects – Allows customers faster time to value by reducing the need to develop expertise on Pig, Hive, and Sqoop, instead using SILQ for creating ETL jobs in MapReduceClosing The Skills Gap – One of the biggest barriers to offloading from the data warehouse into Hadoop is legacy SQL scripts built and extended over time. SILQ takes an SQL script as an input and then provides a MapReduce output without any codingSyncsort DMX-h was designed from the ground up to make big data integration simple – combining a long history of innovation with significant Syncsort contributions to the Apache Hadoop ecosystem. With Syncsort’s DMX-h, users can begin developing Hadoop ETL jobs within hours, and the system can become fully productive within days by using a drag-and-drop interface rather than learning additional complex technologies. Adding to this convenience, the SILQ offload utility helps to obtain drilled-down, detailed information about each step within the data flow, including tables and data transformations. This can reduce expert analysis from 20-plus hours to less than 30 minutes.All the Dell EMC Ready Bundles for Hadoop enable companies to reduce Hadoop deployment times from unpacking the equipment to full productivity within days.  The new Ready Bundle for ETL offload expands the impact of our offering to include reducing development time of ETL jobs to hours instead of days or weeks.At the Dataworks Summit, we encourage you to stop by to discuss your Hadoop implementation and learn how we can help you build a solution that will “Show the Business the Money!”[1] Gartner. “The State of Data Warehousing in 2014.”     June 19, 2014.last_img read more

first_imgThe five-time Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks arrived on campus Thursday for their second straight training camp trip to Compton Family Ice Arena, with public practices on Saturday and Sunday.Tom Nevala, general manager of the Compton Family Ice Arena, said the training camp was first set up last year through discussions with Blackhawk’s manager Stan Bowan, a 1995 Notre Dame alumnus.Observer File Photo “With the facilities we have available to them, the campus environment, they thought it would be a great way to start the season,” Nevala said.The team completed physical testing at the United Center in Chicago Thursday morning before traveling to the University, where Nevala said they will reside at the Morris Inn for the duration of their visit.While at Notre Dame, Nevala said the team will participate in both private and public events.“They are doing some things, but they are private functions on campus,” he said. “They are doing some things in the community as well. I think they’ll go to the Robinson Learning Center, I want to say on Friday afternoon.”Team practice on Friday will be closed to the public, but faculty, staff and students from Notre Dame, Saint Mary’s and Holy Cross are welcome to join the team for an exclusive practice at the Compton Family Ice Arena from 10:00 a.m. to 12:50 p.m. The training camp itself will take place on Saturday and Sunday from 10:15 a.m. to 12:40 p.m.“Hopefully it’s a chance for everyone [to benefit],” he said. “That’s why we have the Friday event specifically for Notre Dame, Saint Mary’s and Holy Cross students, faculty and staff. It’s a great chance to get out and see these guys live in a much smaller venue than the United Center.”Nevala said hosting the team is a special experience that “certainly comes at a great price.” According to the Notre Dame website, the now sold-out general admission tickets for the weekend scrimmages were available for purchase for $10.“I think, more importantly, the 60 guys who come here as part of the Blackhawks enjoy being around the atmosphere that you enjoy every day,” he said. “Maybe a third of an NHL team played hockey in college, most of them [now] have the opportunity to experience the college environment and enjoy kind of being like you guys.”Nevala said the team seems to enjoy the training program set up at Notre Dame.“Before they’ve even started camp this year, they’re already looking forward to returning again next year,” he said.Tags: Chicago Blackhawks, Compton Family Ice Arena, Training Camplast_img read more

first_imgTucked away at the edge of campus on a shady hill lies the modest cradle of Notre Dame — Old College.Old College is the oldest standing building at Notre Dame. Founded by Fr. Edward Sorin, and constructed in 1843, the building is coming up on its 175th anniversary this spring. In the past, Old College housed the Congregation of Holy Cross sisters, brothers and priests, including Fr. Sorin himself. According to the Notre Dame archives, in addition to dorms for students and Holy Cross priests and brothers, Old College once held a classroom, a clothing room, a bakery and a dining hall. Molly Chen | The Observer Old College, pictured, hosts a seminarian program that aims to foster community. The building is Notre Dame’s oldest standing structure.There are not many Old Collegians, as even the building itself is small compared to other residence halls on campus.“Physically, we could probably only fit about 18 or 20 [people],” sophomore seminarian Keenan Bross said.But such a small number has fostered a tight-knit community, sophomore seminarian James Mahoney said.“It’s smaller than dorm life, but we’re a family,” he said. “I expected formation and growth, and I have seen that. I expected a life of preparing yourself for religious life, and I really do see that in Old College. That’s how it’s structured in our community life.”Bonding naturally takes place as a result of this arrangement, Bross said.“It really is like a family, which is what we’re preparing for: to live with one another for our whole life … and live in a small, tight-knit community where there’s a lot of love, accountability, taking care of and being aware of one another, nourishing one another and just having fun sometimes,” he said.Seminarian Daniel Simmons, now in his second year at both Notre Dame and Old College, said he fell in love with the program during his senior year of high school.“Having a community of 10 guys like we do as [undergraduates] is really nice because they’re all going through the same things,” he said. With only 10 men in the program, Notre Dame’s Old Collegians are of top merit and are held to high standards. Men who decide to apply to Old College must be accepted into the program separately from Notre Dame or Holy Cross, Bross said. Before they start their undergraduate degrees, Bross said, the men are required to write essays and make two separate visits to Old College: one informal, where prospective seminarians get information about the program and the second formal, consisting of five separate interviews. Bross said this extensive application process ensures Old College will thrive.“They really want to know who you are to make sure that they’re bringing in someone who … is going to fit in with the community here,” he said. “It was a lot, but you aren’t trying to be impressive in the way you are in a college application. Sure, I wrote a 12-page essay about myself, but it was just kind of like, ‘This is me.’ I wasn’t trying to be fancy or elegant.”Once accepted, the life of an undergraduate seminarian is busy with activities such as Mass, morning prayer, holy hour and rosary, Simmons said. “It’s not the typical college experience,” he said. “For the most part, we’re normal college kids, except we have a really busy schedule.”Bross said he finds fulfillment from a tight schedule.“While being very busy, it’s very nourishing,” Bross said. “Everything that’s on our schedule, whether it be Mass or community meals together … it’s all really nourishing. So in a way, yeah, I’m the busiest I’ve ever been … but I love it. It doesn’t feel like work having to do all of the things that we do.”Aside from the focus on community and inclusion within the seminary, Bross said what makes the program at Old College distinctive is that apart from being required to take 30 philosophy credits and 12 theology credits, Old Collegians can major in any of the undergraduate programs Notre Dame or Holy Cross offers. “Something beautiful about Holy Cross is … that we understand the world in such a way that all is gift from God and all is truth, and it’s really good to be learning things like physics, it’s really good to be learning things like French,” Bross said. “These all contribute to our understanding of our creator and are things that can be useful in the future for a practical sense. I might teach physics in the future as well as be a Holy Cross priest or brother.”Simmons, who is majoring in music theory, history and philosophy, said he appreciates having the opportunity to pursue his passions.“I really did not want to study just theology and philosophy,” he said. “I have other interests than that. We can major in whatever we want to, which is rare for an undergraduate seminary. Normally, kids have to do philosophy and theology as undergrads.”Mahoney said he has found the entire program to be enriching, and the community plays a big part in this. “[The community is] a great group of guys around your age under the guidance of some great Holy Cross priests and brothers who want to prepare you for life as a Holy Cross religious, and above all, to help you know where the Lord is calling you,” Mahoney said.As campus continues expanding, the history of Notre Dame still revolves around Old College, Simmons said. “I think a lot of times it’s a little forgotten point of campus,” Simmons said. “The Dome and the Basilica tend to be the focal points, when [Old College] was the cradle of the University.”Tags: Basilica of the Sacred Heart, Congregation of the Holy Cross, old college, Rev.

Image by Justin Gould/WNYNewsNow.MAYVILLE – Chautauqua County Sheriff Jim Quattrone is seeking an expenditure increase of more than $520,000 from the 2020 adopted budget, according to the 2021 County Executive Tentative Budget. Quattrone told members of the Chautauqua County Legislature during a budget review last week that he budgeted 2021’s jail expenditures in anticipation of more call-offs, etc. should COVID-19 restrictions continue to loosen.For years, the Chautauqua County Jail budget has experienced a degree of fiscal stress due to overtime costs and other salary expenditures.Quattrone says, however, that the overtime costs in 2020 has decreased significantly from years past. According to the Tentative Budget, the 2020 amended jail budget is more than $450,000 less than the 2020 adopted budget. He explains that there were multiple reasons for the decrease.“Part of (the lower costs) is because of the lower jail population (because of bail reform),” Quattrone said. “With COVID, people have taken less time off, less call-in time. Last year, we increased the number of full-time staff and reduced the number of part-time staff.”Quattrone says he budgeted 2021’s jail expenditures in anticipation of more call-offs, etc. should COVID-19 restrictions continue to loosen. The Sheriff is seeking an expenditure increase of more than $520,000 from the 2020 adopted budget, according to the Tentative Budget.Legislator Terry Niebel asked Quattrone why there hasn’t been a cost-reduction in the jail budget as a whole despite the lower jail population. Quattrone says that the overtime costs, as well as increase in base pay for employees, are the major reasons.The Sheriff acknowledged that he’s been approached before about closing parts of the jail in an effort to reduce staffing costs. He says his office has done that to an extent, adding that he also has to consider various requirements from New York State when considering those moves.Additionally, the Sheriff confirmed during the review that three SRO’s were recently laid off due to some school districts pulling from agreements due to COVID budget concerns. He says that two of the three SRO’s were hired by the Jamestown Police Department.The third SRO, meanwhile, is working on logistics in an effort to obtain employment, according to Quattrone.last_img read more

first_img Grease 2, the 1982 movie sequel of Grease, tells the love story of Pink Lady Stephanie Zinone and English transfer student Michael Carrington. The musical follows their road to romance from bowling alley to burger joint, sing-a-long-a-sex education class to talent show, and long (and beautifully lit) romantic motorcycle rides to a slightly incongruous luau ending.  View Comments One-night-only was clearly not enough for fans of Grease 2. Cool Rider, the stage adaptation of the cult musical sequel to Grease, is to return to the west end for one-week-only. Ashleigh Gray and Aaron Sidwell will once again sing the roles of Stephanie and Michael, immortalized on screen by Michelle Pfeiffer and Maxwell Caulfield. The concert will play at the Duchess Theatre April 15 through 19, with opening night set for April 16. The concert will feature the songs “Who’s That Guy?,” “Score Tonight,” “Cool Rider” (which will be sung precariously atop a step ladder without the aid of wires for safety), “Girl for All Seasons” and the haunting melody of “Rock-a-Hula Luau (Summer Is Coming).” Cool Rider is directed by Guy Unsworth and choreographed by Matt Krzan, with musical direction by Lee Freeman, lighting design by Charlie Morgan Jones and costume design by Christopher Wilmer. Further casting will be announced in due course. At least one member of the team is already booking his flights to London.last_img read more

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享PVTech:Some of the world’s top green energy players have tabled ultra-low bids under the second round of Saudi Arabia’s renewable energy programme, set to contract 1.47GW all in all. The kingdom’s Renewable Energy Project Development Office (REPDO) recently identified the firms and consortia shortlisted to develop a slew of solar projects across the country, with some proposing tariffs below the 2-US-dollar-cent-per-kWh threshold.At 600MW in planned capacity, the Al-Faisaliah PV project is the largest of the lot and will be either contracted to a consortium led by Saudi player ACWA Power, or a rival partnership led by United Arab Emirates-headquartered firm Masdar.According to REPDO, the bids for Al-Faisaliah from either side were “extremely close”. The gap between the figures for levelized costs of electricity (LCOE) each had produced was, the government agency said, “within statistical margin of error”. REPDO’s next step for the 600MW project will be to have the two consortia compete under a ‘best and final offer’ approach. The tendering results for this particular project will be revealed at some point in April 2020, the Office added.Held under the so-called National Renewable Energy Program (NREP), Saudi Arabia’s tenders are part of a plan to drive a renewable boom in the space of a decade. Previously floated targets would have the country reach major volumes of installed solar (40GW) and wind and others (20GW) by 2030.The country – which relies on oil revenues to prop up national budgets – has recently seen sharp declines in reference barrel prices, as lockdown plans enacted due to the COVID-19 crisis forced downwards revisions of demand for the fossil fuel. Analysts believe however that solar growth will be forthcoming, amid predictions the country will be one of a few global “growth engines” – installing 1-GW of PV every year – by 2024. NREP’s round-one already delivered the 300MW Sakaka PV plant, while round-three is set to unlock a further 1.2GW.The solar bids of US$0.0162/kWh now being touted in Saudi Arabia mirror the tariffs of US$0.016953/kWh scored last October by a 900MW project in Dubai. The Middle Eastern solar milestones emerge after similar numbers were reported for PV tenders in Brazil and Portugal.[José Rojo Martín]More: Bids of US$0.0162/kWh emerge as Saudi Arabia shortlists firms for 1.47GW solar tender Saudi solar solicitation attracts ultra-low bids, with prices at $0.016/kWhlast_img read more

first_imgWomen’s Equality Day is celebrated on Aug. 26 each year. It commemorates the 1920 adoption of the Nineteenth Amendment granting women the right to vote and has been celebrated in the U.S. since 1973. While much progress has been made in the area of gender equality since that time, digging a bit beneath the surface unearths some telling trends.The bad newsHere are some global stats, based on research conducted by Filene, to consider as it relates to gender parity:Women generate 65 percent of consumer discretionary spending, but their presence in the economy and representation in leadership roles remains unbalancedWomen are 20 percent less likely than men to have a formal bank account and often lack access to savings, credit and other financial servicesThe World Economic Forum predicts the gender gap will not close entirely until 2186When it comes to the credit union industry, some progress has been made, but not enough. Women are still very under represented in senior leadership positions within the industry, and the disparity becomes especially apparent when you look at credit union asset size. In the U.S., women make up 70 percent of credit union employees, yet only 53 percent of all federally insured credit unions have female CEOs and 20 percent have female board presidents. continue reading » 6SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

first_img“Being digital-ready will be more important than ever in the new normal. Grab can help businesses adapt by making the shift online through services like GrabFood and GrabKios,” Riyadi added.Earlier this month, Grab Indonesia introduced a new app called GrabMerchant, aimed as a one-stop service platform that allows micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs), including those in food and beverage, to digitally manage their operational hours, orders, employees, as well as menus and promotions.Meanwhile, the head of the CSIS department of economics, Yose Rizal Damuri, noted that Grab, as a digital platform, played a supporting role during the large-scale social restrictions (PSBB).“We see how digital platforms and gig work help logistics activities during the PSBB, like with the services offered by Grab with goods delivery,” he said.In a statement issued on May 5, Grab Indonesia reported a 22 percent and 21.5 percent increase in GrabMart and GrabExpress orders respectively from February to March, when people largely avoided going out. GrabMart is an online grocery shopping service and GrabExpress is a courier service.Tenggara Strategics researcher Stella Kusumawardhani said that, based on the 2019 findings, GrabFood also helped small businesses expand at minimal cost.“Unlike the conventional restaurant, where additional investment is required to increase capacity at their dine-in locations, we found that 48 percent of GrabFood merchants could increase their sales without the need to spend on additional costs,” Stella said.In 2019, the research found that GrabFood merchant-partners saw their monthly sales increase by 35 percent to Rp 49.6 million per month from the average of Rp 36.7 million per month in 2018. Grab Indonesia managing director Neneng Goenadi welcomed the study, stating that, with the current economic uncertainties, the company could help with the country’s economic recovery through the digitalization of MSMEs.“It is part of our commitment to support the prosperity of gig workers and the MSMEs joining our ecosystem, as well as benefitting the Indonesian people,” she said. “As Indonesia starts to move past COVID-19, we believe that platforms like Grab and the gig economy can support the country on its road to recovery,” said Riyadi Suparno, executive director of Tenggara Strategics, on Thursday.With the economic downturn as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, experts have warned that the country’s 70.49 million informal workers, the majority of the Indonesian workforce, are considered the most vulnerable. Motorcycle taxi drivers association Two-Wheeled Action Movement (Garda) reported a 70 percent decrease in drivers’ daily earnings during the pandemic.However, the research notes that Grab has provided earning opportunities for those dealing with unemployment, like in 2019, when 31 percent of GrabBike and 26 percent of GrabCar partners had no income prior to joining Grab.The company’s digital platform would also aid the merchant-partners’ transition to a post-pandemic economy, Riyadi stated. Ride-hailing firm Grab Indonesia contributed Rp 77.4 trillion (US$5.45 billion) to the Indonesian economy last year, largely thanks to its food delivery service, while providing gig work for the country’s informal workers, research released Thursday has shown.The research, conducted by the Centre for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) and Tenggara Strategics, revealed that the biggest source of Grab’s contributions to the economy came from its food delivery service GrabFood, which contributed Rp 37.3 trillion of the total Rp 77.4 trillion. The overall 2019 figure marks a 58.3 percent increase from the firm’s Rp 48.9 trillion in 2018.The data was calculated based on the incomes of more than 5,000 surveyed Grab partners and merchants before and after joining Grab, across its four services – motorcycle taxi service GrabBike, ride-hailing service GrabCar, GrabFood and merchant GrabKios.center_img Topics :last_img read more

first_imgColumbus, IN—The Columbus Police Department is seeking information on the identity of a man who reportedly stole a car and struck an unoccupied CPD patrol vehicle before fleeing the scene of the crash early Thursday morning.Just before 7 am,  CPD officers responded to a report of a suspicious person knocking on the doors of homes on Brookside Court. A CPD officer observed a suspicious vehicle in the neighborhood a short time later and when the driver of the vehicle stepped out to speak with the officer, his unidentified passenger quickly got into the driver’s seat and took off in the sliver Volkswagen Jetta. The suspect crashed into an unoccupied CPD patrol vehicle moments later before exiting the subdivision.Officers observed the stolen Volkswagen a short time later and noted that the vehicle was traveling recklessly and the car had extensive front end damage. The officers observed that the driver of the stolen car was traveling at a high rate of speed without working headlights as it continued north on Jonesville Road towards the road construction area near SR 46 and SR 11. Due to the heavy morning traffic, the officers opted to terminate the vehicle pursuit.Anyone with information on the location of the stolen vehicle and the identity of the driver is urged to contact the Columbus Police Department at (812) 376-2600.

first_imgTHE Youth Basketball Guyana’s (YBG) 11th Annual National Schools Basketball Festival (NSBF) will tip into its final quarter today, with a series of Under-19 games from 17:00hrs at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall. Action in the tournament has been ongoing for two weeks and today’s quarterfinals mark the first of the last three days in the event.The first game of the day will see defending champions Kwakwani Secondary match up against Mackenzie High. The Mackenzie side will be looking to deny the defending champs another run at the title.However, it will not be an easy task since Kwakwani will be led by Road to Mecca 3 MVP Stanton Rose. For Mackenzie, shutting down Rose will only be a small part of the game plan with Kwakwani boasting two other Junior National players in Damair ‘Bubba’ Gladstone and Troy ‘Rambo’ David.Following their match-up, President’s College will take on Linden Technical Institute (LTI). Both teams are coming into the game with dominating performances against their opponents in the opening rounds.Jaleel Duke will be hoping to lead his East Coast side into the semifinals while Tahquille Johnson of LTI will be looking to spoil the party. LTI have a history of excelling in knockout stages, but with a fairly new cast, the Linden side will have pressure on their shoulders.St Rose’s High will take on New Amsterdam Multilateral Secondary (NAMS) in the third game of the day. This will be an interesting matchup with both teams boasting high-calibre big men as well as guards.New Amsterdam will have to find a way to cut off the head of Rose’s offence in duo guards Patrice Agrippa and Shamar Huntley. For NAMS, Ramone Fogenay and Kelmar Carmichael’s point guard combo will be crucial. The battle of the big ones will see NAMS’ Neil Marks, Tafawa Daly, Sherland Gillis take it to St Rose’s Akil Vaughn and Leon Ross. So far, Marks has seemed unstoppable with Daly spreading the floor to hit threes and Gillis’ scrappers approach to the game giving NAMS the edge.Georgetown Technical Institute received a bye and will head straight to the semi-finals to await an opponent. Tomorrow will see all semifinals played with the final and closing ceremony on Sunday.The tournament is sponsored by Digicel, Banks DIH Limited and Beharry Group of Companies.last_img read more

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Tennis News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju on Monday said the government will not have any say on whether India should participate in next month’s Davis Cup tie in Pakistan as the event is not a bilateral engagement. India’s participation in the Asia-Oceania Zone Group 1 Davis Cup tie, scheduled on September 14 and 15 in Islamabad, is uncertain owing to high political tensions with Pakistan. The country has downgraded diplomatic ties with India after provisions of Article 370, which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir, were done away with and the state was turned into a Union Territory.  “If it is a bilateral sporting event, then whether India will play with Pakistan becomes a political decision. But Davis Cup is not a bilateral and is organised by a world sporting body,” Rijiju said on the sidelines of an event of the ministry of youth affairs.”Since India is a signatory to the Olympic charter. Therefore, the government of India or the national federation do not have a say on whether India will participate or not,” he added. The All India Tennis Association (AITA) will be seeking a neural venue for the tie but its Pakistani counterpart on Sunday made it clear that it would not agree to a change as preparations are already underway in Islamabad.The AITA will cite the diplomatic tensions and security concerns while seeking a change of venue from the ITF. No Indian Davis Cup team has travelled to Pakistan since 1964 and bilateral cricket ties between the two countries have been dormant since the 2008 terror attack in Mumbai.Since 2017, Pakistan have played four of their five home ties in Islamabad, hosting Korea, Thailand, Uzbekistan and Iran. Hong Kong had refused to travel to Pakistan in 2017, giving them a walkover. The last time Pakistan played on a neutral venue was when it hosted China in Colombo in 2016. In 2015, Pakistan played both their home ties on neutral venues. They played Chinese Taipei in Turkey while hosting Kuwait in Colombo.  highlightscenter_img No Indian Tennis team has visited Pakistan since 1964.India will play in Islamabad on September 14 and 15.Pakistan last played in a neutral venue when it hosted China in Colombo in 2016.last_img read more

first_imgAs the completion of the John McKay Center nears, Trojan players and fans alike have a lot to be happy about. The new three-story athletic facility features 110,000 square feet of space which includes weight rooms, football offices and even an indoor practice field. Such facilities are vital in this era of college football, where flash and glamor are often selling points for recruits.Quite the character · John McKay coached USC from 1960-1975. He won four national titles, but was known just as much for his wit. – Photo courtesy of USC AthleticsAs USC fans, however, we should not only celebrate this historic building as a tool to make players better, but must see it in its historical context, for the man it was named for: John McKay. For without the legendary coach, USC football would not be where it is today.McKay took the coaching job at USC in 1960 after being an assistant for both Oregon and, later, USC. His tenure hardly started well; the Trojans finished with eight total wins in his first two seasons. It did not look like the McKay era was going to be anything special.The tide turned, however, in 1962. McKay’s squad finished the season 11-0 and capped off the season with a Rose Bowl victory over Wisconsin. The Trojans would win three more national championships under McKay in 1967, 1972 and 1974. They won the Pac-8 Conference nine times in his 16 seasons.Though the wins and losses are crucial to McKay’s legacy, he was much more than just a 127-40-8 record. He was a character. He was a man that changed football in Los Angeles for good.McKay saw two Heisman Trophy winners walk through campus in Mike Garrett (1965) and OJ Simpson (1968). He coached quarterback Pat Haden, NFL Hall of Fame receiver Lynn Swann, “Notre Dame Killer” Anthony Davis and Sam Cunningham — the runningback who, for all intents and purposes, caused the South Eastern Conference to integrate in 1970, forever changing the landscape of college football.McKay might be most noted for his wit and his quotations, many of which Trojan fans remember to this day.When asked why Simpson had 47 carries in a game, he replied, “He doesn’t belong to a union. Anyway, the ball doesn’t weigh that much.”When asked about his team’s less-than-stellar performance, he retorted with, “We didn’t tackle well today, but we made up for it by not blocking.”Perhaps his most famous line came while he was the coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and was asked what he thought of his team’s execution in a loss. His response? “I’m all for it.”John McKay changed football at USC. Yes, the Trojans had success in prior years, winning championships under legendary coach Howard Jones, but McKay created a culture of winning.Pete Carroll brought USC football back; McKay made the tradition a legend. The legacy of “Tailback U” would not exist if McKay hadn’t installed the I-Formation into his offenses. The Trojans would have four less banners to show in Heritage Hall were it not for McKay. There would be two less Heisman Trophies.But most of all, there is a good chance that USC football would have been stuck in mediocrity. Sure, a great coach could have come in and won many games. But McKay didn’t just win games; he won students and fans with his success and character.The next time you walk by the McKay Center, which is expected to be finished in the fall, admire it for more than its impressive exterior. Admire it for more than the fact that it gives the Trojans another edge in recruiting the best players in the country.Instead, admire it for the man it is named after. The man who made USC football what it is today. The man who changed college football for the entire country. “Goal Line Stand” runs Thursdays.

Whether it was trying to outrun his older brother while taking out the trash as a child or running away from defenders during a game of flag football he had the same mentality.”It’s definitely in my DNA to go out there and compete and try to win in everything I do,” Watson said.Years later the Houston Texans quarterback has maintained that same mindset, and when you ask almost anyone about him that’s one of the first things they’ll bring up. As the Texans prepare to host the Buffalo Bills in the first round of the playoffs on Saturday, coach Bill O’Brien reminisced about his early interactions with Watson and when he knew he was special.”He’s a winner, cares about winning, will do whatever it takes to win,” O’Brien said. “That came across in the first two meetings, so I would say it was way before he got here and on the practice field.”Since then as O’Brien has gotten to know Watson better and watched him lead the Texans he’s only become more impressed with him.”He’s got great poise,” O’Brien said. “Anybody that’s been around him for a long time, (knows) he doesn’t have any fear. He has no fear and …. he has a lot of fun playing, you see the smile on his face, he loves playing football and he loves being out there with his teammates.”Watson takes great pride in being a leader and knows how he carries himself will rub off on the rest of the team and impact how others perform.”You’re the face of the franchise and everyone is looking (at) you,” he said. “So regardless if you’re down, if you’re up, you’re facing that adversity (or) you’re having success too, people want to still see that fight and that will to continue to finish what you started and try to win the game or what you’re competing in. Everyone is going to follow that and everyone will see it.”Receiver DeAndre Hopkins loves that quality in Watson and thinks that’s one of the reasons why he’s so successful.”Everybody in this locker room, offense and defense feeds off of his game and how he never feels like we’re out of a game no matter what the score is,” Hopkins said. “He’s a winner. He’s won his whole career and it shows every day in everything he does.”Watson has a penchant for shining in the biggest moments. He did it when he helped Gainesville high school to a state title and at Clemson when he led the Tigers to a national championship in the 2016 season. Watson has continued that success with the Texans where he’s helped them to consecutive AFC South titles and had some of his biggest games when Houston was playing in prime time.But in perhaps the biggest game of his NFL career, Watson came up short. Last season in his playoff debut Watson threw an interception and struggled to move the offense effectively in a 21-7 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.He believes the experience in that playoff game will help him on Saturday when he gets another chance to notch his first postseason win.”Just knowing that … the game is going to go by faster, the plays, the players play a little bit faster than the regular season. Everything just speeds up,” he said. “So, just being able to be prepared and see how the energy and everything changes in a playoff game, it really helps out to get that firsthand look last year. I know it didn’t go our way, but we’ve got another opportunity this year.”He has thrown for 3,852 yards with 26 touchdowns and 12 interceptions and ran for 413 yards with seven more scores this season. Watson, who sat out last week with Houston’s playoff spot set, struggled with turnovers in his last three starts. He threw five interceptions in those games after only being picked off twice in Houston’s previous five games. He said those miscues are a big reason the offense hasn’t been as powerful recently as it was earlier in the season.”My turnovers,” he said. “That’s pretty much it … if I don’t turn two balls over in Tennessee that’s 14 extra points and who knows how the game goes. It’s something that we corrected.”O’Brien has no doubt that Watson will get back on track this week and raved about how much he’s improved in his three seasons with the Texans.”He gets better every day,” O’Brien said. “I wouldn’t be able to pick out one thing. He gets better every day at everything. He tries to work on everything from mechanics to knowledge of the game plan to defensive knowledge.” LIVE TV FOLLOW USlast_img read more

first_imgSumner Newscow report — The 2015 season progresses for the Oxford boys baseball team.

They are no longer a league game for us as Elk Valley is coopting with Fredonia, which makes them a big 3A school. There were a lot of unknowns. Our kids did a great job of working counts at the plate and we were able to get runners on via the walk early. Then we executed with runners on and were able to score a pile of runs in Game 1 in the 3rd inning to put it away.I believe we put up 11 runs in that frame. Grant did a great job on the mound, kept his pitch count low and pitched to the zone. He also did a great job at the plate. We got quality production out of the Shimkus boys and Dalton Silhan.  Game 2, our offense was a little sluggish compared to game 1. We had some poor execution of situational hitting early in that game. Cal Shimkus got his first career varsity win on the mound for us.He did a great job of filling it up with strikes and getting outs when he needed too. Cal’s a freshman and it’s been great to see his confidence continue to build on the mound as the year has gone on. Grant and Camren led the offense in game 2. We executed some little things to extend the lead and then Cal basically locked them up for the win. This was a sweep we needed at this point in the year. It was key especially for our freshman to have a little bit of success. Freshman Dalton Silhan had been struggling at the plate coming into these games and he busted out of that in a big way in Game 1.Credit to him, he just keeps working everyday and getting better. Not letting little things get him down.4-27-15Game 1: Udall 9 Oxford 1Pitching: LP — Grant Smith: 4 IP, 7 K’s, 8 BB, 4 ER. Cameren Clements - 3 IP, 4 K’s, 1 BB, 1 ERBatting:Oggie Shimkus 1-2, single, 1 RBI, 1 BB.Dalton Silhan 1-2, single.Game 2:Udall 4 Oxford  2Pitching:LP — Oggie Shimkus 6 IP, 5 K’s, 2 BB, 3 ER.Cal Shimkus - 1 IPBatting:Dalton Silhan  2-3, 2 singles.Dakota Mitchell 1-2, single, scored 1 run, 1 sac bunt.Derek Williams 1-3, single.Green’s Comments on Udall double header:I thought we had a chance to compete with Udall coming into these games. The are tied for first in our league and we had lost a close game two weeks ago to Flinthills who is tied with Udall for the league lead and we thought we had a shot. Grant didn’t have his best outing on the mound after pitching well the week before. Credit to the maturity of him, he flat said I didn’t pitch well. For a sophomore to say that says a lot about his character.We continued to battle but after we got in a hole early it proved to be tough. We barreled up some balls really well. Udall’s 2B Tanner Roberts had a heck of a game for them. He made several plays that as a baseball guy, you just say wow, what a great play. He had himself a day robbing us of hits in key situations in Game 1 especially.Game 2, we played well, we just did not get timely hitting. Oggie threw well as did Billy Barnett from Udall. It was a well played game for the most part and both pitchers just competed and battled. We scratched out 2 runs but couldn’t get closer.Udall is about as solid a team defensively as you will see in our league. I was proud of our kids for competing in the 2nd game and battling. That’s the type of development you want to see out of a young team. We had 6 freshman, 2 sophomores, and one senior on the field the majority of the game. You always worry about how young kids will respond in tough situations but our kids have done a great job handling adversity as the year has gone on. Next up: West Elk on Monday, May 4th. We have two JV double headers, one tonight, one Friday.Follow us on Twitter. Close Forgot password? Please put in your email: Send me my password!

first_imgThe data speak of a remarkable team in attack and ripped in defense. He is sixth in shots, in goal plays, in possession and in passes, records that would keep you in Europe, but colista in recoveries and third by the tail in conceded goals (42 in 26 days). Of these, 16 correspond to strategy moves. Only Mallorca defends them worse.Tonight recover Bartra, low by penalty in Mestalla, and it is possible that Loren will take the place from Borja Iglesias. The forecast is to play with three centrals and Edgar as a midfielder.Mendy Modric, headlinesIn Madrid, the room for maneuver of Zidane It narrows. Much of plan B has been come down, starting with Bale, who barely played a quarter of an hour against City and did not leave the bench against Barça, and following by Jovic, again off a list where they are Rodrygo and Mariano. And, in addition, he has encountered three unexpected casualties (Carvajal and Nacho, for the flu, and Isco, for a low back pain). That will force him to use Militao as a right back. The Brazilian has played less than a third of the games of the course (12 of 38) and in the last month and a half he only played 90 minutes in the Cup against Real Sociedad. Isco will have A natural relay, Modric, and Mendy is also expected to be the left back, the place with the most rotation in the team.Betis is encouraged by the immediate past (he has not lost to Madrid the last two duels) and not so much the remote one: only two victories in the 12 closest clashes. La Liga and Rubi hang by a thread. The only defeats Madrid in this League arrived before teams from the south of the table (Mallorca and Levante). And there, in that awkward geographical situation, live Betis, made for something else after spending 100 million in signings between summer and winter (follow the game live on It has not turned out, as neither it has done Ruby, in which the club put so much faith that it paid its termination clause to get him out of Spanish, to the one who had taken to the Europa League, and signed a three-year contract. Today, with the fourteenth team, without having spent a single day in European positions and to 12 points of Valenciaseventh That faith has been lost.The need match, Well, he is from Madrid, recovered verticality with the victory in the Classic and the League in his hand. The Betis is far from the glory and not so much from the abyss (his mattress with the descent is only five points). Alone the lack of a relay from true shaft keeps Rubi in his position, but after Madrid the derby will arrive, a match that lasts two weeks in Seville, the previous one and the subsequent one, regardless of its usefulness. And there You can finish the technician’s journey.Nothing went well in a Betis with high expectations. William Carvalho, absent in Valencia, was low from October to February. Borja Iglesias, the star signing (28 million), has scored three goals in the course. Past year, in Espanyol, signed 20. Loren, his alleged substitute has played more and scored 11 points. Laínez, recently operated on appendicitis, has punctured. Juanmi carries injured since August and Pedraza, since November. Feddal disappeared from the team in early January was at point of being sold to Valencia. Only Fekir, the player who has caused the most penalties in the League, seems up to his resume. And the winter reinforcements, Guido Rodríguez and Aleñá, they turn out Insubstantial so far. The arithmetic summary of the situation is that the team has seven consecutive games without winning, it was thrown out of the Cup by a Second (lightning) and has added only three of the last eighteen points in the league.last_img read more

first_imgIs “all paradísimo“, they acknowledge from Espanyol AS once they ask about the next season planning. Stagnation additionally refers to doable renewals, and that 9 footballers and the coach himself, Abelardo Fernández, finish their contract (Not less than it has been doable to agree with them on the continuity past June 30). The crossroads is full.To A pandemic and uncertainty in case LaLiga will probably be in a position to conclude, and with it the revenue (some which have already been invested, akin to the 40 million of January in transfers), which impacts the remainder of skilled golf equipment, is added in the case of Espanyol the impossibility of figuring out whether or not to incorporate footballers for First or Second. Earlier than the break, the staff was working backside, six factors from permanence. However there are, or can be, 11 days to play. The key all the things, the skilled soccer director, Francisco Joaquín Pérez Rufete, acknowledged on Tuesday, is about figuring out the monetary ‘honest play’ that LaLiga marks, which in December raised the wage restrict exceptionally to 80 million, and that in a lower it could possibly be minimize in half. Data that, in any case, will probably be delayed.And, though nonetheless Espanyol has not obtained any notification, at the very least for the second, the Short-term Employment Regulation File (ERTE) executed on this ultimate stretch of the season could additional prohibit spending on transfers, since the membership has obtained State assist, though they belief that the employers will work to cut back that influence.last_img read more

first_imgMELBOURNE, Australia (AP):Cristiano Ronaldo scored one goal and was unlucky not to have another as Real Madrid beat Manchester City 4-1 in front of almost 100,000 fans at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in a friendly yesterday.Madrid broke through in the 21st minute when Karim Benzema volleyed in a close-range scissor kick off a long Gareth Bale pass from the right.Ronaldo doubled the lead two minutes later to a deafening roar from the crowd when he collected a deft Toni Kroos chip from midfield and poked in a shot just beyond City goalkeeper Joe Hart.Pepe made it 3-0 nodding in an Isco corner just before half-time.City answered in first-half stoppage time with a Yaya TourÈ penalty, after Sergio Ramos was called for a handball in the box.Second-half substitute Denis Cheryshev converted an Isco pass to finish the scoring.Devastating injuryCity midfielder Fabian Delph, signed from Aston Villa for £8 million (US$12.5 million) last week, was carried from the field in the 20th with an apparent hamstring injury. He will have scans today.”This injury is not the best news because he was just starting the season with our team, but we’ll see tomorrow,” City manager Manuel Pellegrini said.The match marked Rafa BenÌtez’s first win as Madrid manager.”I’m very pleased,” BenÌtez said. “When you are working so hard, when the players are training in double training sessions and doing so well in every training session, you can see the commitment.”Ronaldo had a goal disallowed in the 57th for offside, but video indicated the goal should have been granted.The crowd of 99,382 was the MCG’s largest for a football match, eclipsing the 95,446 in 2013 for a Liverpool-Melbourne Victory friendly.The match was the last of the three-game International Champions Cup that also included Roma.last_img read more

first_imgWomen have been kept in the back or kitchens for too long with few, like President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and other prominent women, braving the storm to match-up with their male counterparts. But since the President’s ascendency, there have been a crusade for women’s social, political and most especially economic empowerments.This, however, hasn’t been on the scale that will bring about significant improvement in the lives of women across the country because the impact from what has been practiced in the society for centuries cannot just be removed or erased in ten or twenty years. This not only takes time, but a lot of negotiations and sacrifices.African women have lived in the shadows of their husbands for centuries, but twenty-five year old Rebecca (not her real name) thinks this shouldn’t be the case anymore. “Because it is like we are in slavery. We don’t do anything on our own. They dictate our lives, telling us how and what to and not do. They practically control our lives,” she said.Rebecca feels sorrow for her mother, grandmothers and other women who had to live their entire lives through servitude. “Some of us are blessed that we who are seeing the light at an early stage do not see it this way anymore. We can say that we are blessed and I thank God for Red Cross and its partners who initiated this program. We will now work to lead our own life and not be dictated to by anymore, but negotiated with now,” she added.She was one of 198 females from West Point who received certificates in several trainings ranging from catering, cosmetology, tailoring and others, at a well-attended ceremony in that township.The initiative is the 5th cycle graduation exercise of the Liberia National Red Cross Society’s Women Training and Integration (WIN) project. The project was established in 2008 for the purpose of developing war affected women (associated with conflict trauma and vulnerabilities), who are victims of social and economic exclusion.Rebecca, like many of her peers, is a victim of abuses. In spite of her young age, she has lived in an abusive home with a drunkard, who is also a drug addict, adding, “When you can make your own money nobody can take you for anything as it has been in the past.” She noted that she had been constrained to live in her home because she had no skills to fend for herself and her two kids.But with her newly acquired cosmetology skills Rebecca has already begun to make little money for herself and is deciding on finding a place to move with her kids. “I’m so grateful to Red Cross for this initiative. I was in this West Point doing nothing for myself and only dependingon my husband every day. He abuses me every day when even giving food money,” she said.Rebecca is just one of the many women who undergo humiliation on a daily basis because they can’t fend for themselves. Most of them are either totally illiterate or semi-literate.What appeared to be the slogan of the training exercises, “Women don’t sit there; do your hands something positive with,” reverberated across the hall—invoking consciousness in women to go beyond their limits and rebuild their lives.“We hope that this training will help us to contribute not just to our individual homes, but our communities and country,” another graduate, Patience Doe, said.She believes no society or nation can strive without the meaningful contribution of women. “Nobody can build this country for us; we have to do it ourselves. Therefore any little way we can help, we will,” Ms. Doe said.Serving as guest speaker was UN Women Program Manager Ramon Garway. He urged the graduates to use their acquired skills to benefit society as well as to achieve gender equality.Garway said women and girls are important actors of change for national development in Liberia and should play a key role in the decision-making processes to ensure inclusion, while also committing his entity to providing financial assistances to the graduates.Red Cross Director of Program Ambullai Perry lauded the graduates for their patience throughout the exercise and noted that the Red Cross is proud of them.“We are happy that we are supporting women. The Red Cross is here to help communities and the Government of Liberia and we are happy for that mandate given us. Today we are happy for the people of West Point that have given their fullest,” Perry said.

first_imgPlans to borrow US$15 billion to pay off the liabilities of two sugar factories belonging to the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) will trigger a local financial crisis the likes of which have never been seen domestically.This is the view of economic advisor to the Opposition, Peter Ramsaroop, who advised that Government not get this loan, as it would be a huge debt to repay.Ramsaroop said this decision could lead to the treasury swelling tenfold or more in the near future.The economic advisor said this large debt could place even more pressure on the country to repay its current loans to bilateral partners like China and India, and financial institutions such as the Inter-American Development Bank and the Caribbean Development Bank.Advisor to the Opposition Peter RamsaroopRamsaroop views this decision as taking a backward step to the 1980s, when Guyana had most of its revenues servicing debt. He said that the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) managed to reduce the debt-to-Gross Domestic Product (GDP) ratio to 47.9 per cent and it should be maintained rather than burdened.“(Finance Minister Winston) Jordan is banking on oil, but the contract signed by Minister of Natural Resources, Raphael Trotman is so lopsided, Guyana, at current world market prices, will only earn about US$400 million per year.”According to him, the price of oil on the world market is currently US$64 per barrel, which at 120,000 barrels per day gives US$2.8 billion a year. Under the Production Sharing Agreement (PSA) signed by the Guyana Government and ExxonMobil, of the US$2.8 billion earned on oil sold, ExxonMobil gets US$2.4 billion, while Guyana gets a paltry US$400 million. The US$400 million includes profit and royalty.Government has said it hoped to repay the loan over the next three to five years. Finance Minister Jordan explained that the money would be used specifically to fund the operations of the Skeldon and Enmore Sugar Estates, which were likely to reemploy some workers.The Minister said the idea was to keep the Estates operational as it searched for buyers. He said open the Estates stood a better chance of being sold to a private company, as opposed to being closed. He noted that the idea was to close deals in another six to nine months to have these Estates sold in full.Jordan said revenues generated from the sale of Estates and other assets would be used to repay the loan. The Government will be turning to commercials banks for this syndicated bond.But Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo has since warned the nation that Guyanese taxpayers may ultimately foot the bill for the repayment of this loan while the “handpicked” investors would reap the gains and maximise their profitability.Jagdeo has said he was not buying the economic and financial arguments put forward by the Finance Ministry and the Government to justify this move.He has said it defied logic that Government wanted to borrow $15 billion to keep these Estates open for a few months, when that sum could have assisted the reopening for close to one year.last_img read more

first_img…legal counsel says tax claim was previously rejected by courtOn the same day that Finance Minister Winston Jordan was supposed to pay Dipcon US$2 million in a court-awarded judgement, it has emerged that the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) has slapped the Trinidad-based company with a tax bill of over $500 million.The Guyana Revenue AuthorityGuyana Times was able to confirm with Dipcon’s legal representative, Timothy Jonas that the GRA sent his client the letter claiming it owed the tax authority the money. According to reports reaching this publication, the alleged debt is $527.8 million.“What I can tell you is that a similar letter from the GRA, about six months ago, was challenged by Dipcon and thrown out by the court. The timing was about the same, when a claim was made for a mandamus for Jordan to pay the money. The same day we appeared in court, that letter came,” the Attorney said.Section 101 (1) of the Income Tax Act states that “When the Commissioner General has knowledge or suspects that a person is or is about to become indebted or liable to make a payment of tax under this Act, he may, by registered letter or by letter served personally, require such first-mentioned person to pay the monies otherwise payable to such second-mentioned person in whole or in part to him on account of the liability of the second mentioned person under this Act.”It goes on to say, “The receipt of the Commissioner General for monies paid as required under this section shall to the extent of the payment be a good and sufficient discharge of the original liability: – (a) of the person who pays such monies to the Commissioner General to the person liable to make a payment tax under this Act; (b) of the person liable to make a payment of tax under this Act to the Commissioner General.”Efforts to contact GRA Commissioner General Godfrey Statia were futile. Last month, High Court Judge, Justice Priya Sewnarine-Beharry had ordered Minister Jordan to pay Dipcon a US$2.2 million award or face jail time. The Trinidad-based construction company had taken the Finance Minister to court for failing to honour the payment of millions of dollars, which was awarded to Dipcon by Justice Rishi Persaud in 2015.After Dipcon took the Government to court back in 2009 to recover monies owed for road works done, Justice Persaud had ordered Government to pay the company US$665,032.17 as payment for the works done along with US$1,563,368.50 for costs it incurred for those works, together with interest on both amounts, at a rate of six per cent annum from February 10, 2009, to October 21, 2015 and thereafter at the rate of four per cent per annum until fully paid.However, since none of the payments owed were made, Dipcon had successfully approached the High Court for an administrative order to compel the Minister to pay.On Friday, Justices Diana Insanally and Simone Morris-Ramlall threw out Jordan’s application, filed by Attorney General Basil Williams, for a stay of the court order. In their judgement, the Judges expressed the view that his application had no merit.last_img read more

first_imgThat would be a massive boost for Spurs, with Barca already guaranteed to finish first in Group B, and possibly ready to rest their Argentinian star ahead of Sunday’s game against Levante, the only team to beat them in La Liga last season.For Tottenham to reach the Champions League next round, they need to match or better the result of Group B rivals Inter Milan, faced with the easier task of winning at home to PSV Eindhoven.Vermaelen, back from a hamstring injury, could be called on to play against an opponent he knows well and against whom he enjoyed some of his favourite moments for Arsenal in the Premier League before his move to Barcelona four years ago.“My favourite was maybe in my first or second year when we were losing 2-0 and ended up winning 5-2,” Vermaelen said. “I can still remember now the celebrations after in the changing room. The smell of the game, the noise. Those games against Tottenham at the Emirates were amazing.”In 2012, Arsenal were still the lead force in their duel with Spurs while Vermaelen was one of the division’s most impressive central defenders, known as the “Verminator”.Vermaelen still watches Arsenal and thinks Unai Emery is doing a “great job”.“I saw the last derby and you can see the atmosphere, how much it means every time, it was unbelievable,” he says. “I was really happy to be there for five years, I miss it. When I see the stadium and them doing well…I have good memories.”He left in 2014 when Barcelona made an offer of 19 million euros but injuries have limited his impact in Spain, especially during his debut season when he played only a single match.Messi made me better“I have no regrets. I came here to be surrounded by the biggest players in the world and that is something very special,” Vermaelen said. “It is not easy to start every game of course but overall I’ve been very happy. To be on the pitch with these guys, every day, I feel very blessed.”Messi is one of those. “In training he is the same as he is in matches,” Vermaelen says. “Imagine facing that every day! He has made me a better player.”With Samuel Umtiti out injured, Vermaelen could yet play an important role this term but his contract expires next summer and the 33-year-old is considering his options, including a return to England.“It is not impossible, I have warm memories of my time in England and I was very happy there.”Much can change in six months and Barcelona are competing on all fronts. They won the double in May but disappointment lingers from the shock defeat to Roma in the Champions League quarter-finals. Their coach, Ernesto Valverde, was blamed for not resting players enough.“The expectations are very high,” Vermaelen said. “We can’t think of it as a problem because that can also make it more difficult. It is just the Champions League is very tough to win,” he said.Complicating matters is the possibility of a controversial trip to Miami next month, where La Liga want to stage Barcelona’s away fixture against Girona.“It’s all a bit strange,” Vermaelen said. “Girona misses a home game and players have to travel so many hours already, on top you then have to go to Miami? That’s not very easy on us.”On Tuesday against Tottenham at Camp Nou he expects to see Belgian pals Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld but also Harry Kane, whom he faced twice during Belgium’s wins over England at the World Cup.Kane has four goals already in the Champions League and his name is regularly linked with Real Madrid.“He scores goals but in play too he is strong, which is not so common now,” Vermaelen said. “He is at that level where he could play for any club in the world, a complete player, no doubt.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Thomas Vermaelen knows Tottenham well from his five years with Arsenal in the Premier League. © AFP/File / Alexander NEMENOVBARCELONA, Spain, Dec 10 – Thomas Vermaelen still has a Whatsapp group with his Belgium team-mates at Tottenham but when it comes to Barcelona’s plans for their Champions League match at the Camp Nou on Tuesday, all concerned are keeping quiet.“We talk all the time but they know they can’t do anything about who will play,” says the former Arsenal defender in an exclusive interview with AFP, referring to the possibility that Lionel Messi may take the night off.last_img read more

first_imgThere were quite a lot of Liverpool fans annoyed at the club’s failure to land Memphis Depay recently when the Dutch flyer ended up joining Man United instead of their beloved Reds.It can’t be nice watching your bitter rivals sign someone you hoped would join your club, but then Kopites old enough to remember 1989 will recall Fiorentina’s Glenn Hysen snubbing Fergie’s Man United in order to play at Anfield.Having won three Swedish titles with IFK Gothenburg and the UEFA Cup twice, Hysen was playing for Italian side Fiorentina.By this time he was Sweden captain and one of Europe’s best players, with Ferguson keen to bring him to England. Hysen even flew to Manchester to meet the boss, chairman Martin Edwards and captain Bryan Robson but talks stalled and a couple of weeks later he was playing for Kenny Dalglish’s Liverpool.“Liverpool came to see me in Gothenburg. Discussions lasted 10 minutes and I signed. [Chief executive] Peter Robinson and [chairman] John Smith arranged the deal. It was a good offer, but it was also simple,” he told LFC magazine.Hysen made his debut in the 1-0 win Charity Shield win against Arsenal and shortly afterwards he scored his first goal for the club in their 9-0 win against Crystal Palace (see the video below) before ending the 1989/90 season as champion, Liverpool’s last title triumph.Over the course of the campaign, the Reds’ 37 goals conceded was the fewest of all 20 teams and they finished nine points clear of second place Aston Villa.United, meanwhile languished in 13th spot, almost 30 points adrift of their north west neighbours. However, Hysen, playing less frequently under Graeme Souness, left Liverpool in 1992 for IFK’s Gothenburg rivals GAIS and retired in 1994 at the age of 34.

first_img 3 Manchester City v Liverpool is live on talkSPORT at 5.30pm on Saturday 21 November.Jurgen Klopp faces his biggest test yet in his short time in England as he takes his Liverpool side to title favourites and Premier League leaders Manchester City.But how well equipped is the German to deal with such a challenge? Is he walking into the lion’s den with nothing but a ball of string?Yes, Klopp is considered the better manager from his time with Borussia Dortmund, but just how many of his current Reds squad would get a look in under Manuel Pellegrini at the Etihad?Raheem Sterling doesn’t seem to think many would, implying he is now working with much better players that he was at the Reds’ Melwood training ground following his £50m summer transfer.“I go into training every day and see the players of that calibre that I am work with – like Vinny [Vincent Kompany, Sergio [Aguero], David [Silva], Joe [Hart],” he said.“There is only one thing you can do and that is improve with players like that, who have been around for many years and achieving stuff.” 3 And Sterling may indeed have a point.Let’s compare the calibre of players. Joe Hart is the superior goalkeeper and what about the rest of the defence? It is unlikely Vincent Kompany is gazing longingly towards the Merseyside skyline, hoping for a centre back partner better than the ones he currently has.Liverpool fans will protest Nathanial Clyne, England’s first choice right back, deserves an inclusion in this combined XI. But is he better than Bacary Sagna, a player who has won the FA Cup, has been named in the PFA Team of the Year twice and played in the World Cup?Would he even make the bench ahead of two-time Premier League champion, and World Cup and Copa America runner-up, Pablo Zabaleta? Unlikely.But Liverpool fans knew that. Their strengths lie further up the field.However, a fully fit Jordan Henderson or Emre Can are not quite on the level of Yaya Toure or Fernandinho. James Milner was called upon many a time by Pellegrini during his spell in Manchester, and although he left on his own accord, if City had wanted to keep him, they would have. Philippe Coutinho? The Brazilian is undoubtedly Liverpool’s best player and one of the best no.10s in the Premier League. Nevertheless, David Silva is better.No player in the league, never mind in Klopp’s squad, would displace Sergio Aguero and on current form, the same can be said of Kevin De Bruyne.Therefore, Liverpool’s greatest strength in this fixture is their manager.For someone who has plotted the downfall of Bayern Munich and took Dortmund to an unlikely Champions League final, humbling Real Madrid en route, beating City should be more straightforward.And if Klopp is the mastermind his reputation leads us to believe, then it may not matter how many Liverpool players would get into a Manchester City side on paper.Pellegrini has the players, but come Saturday evening, we will see if Klopp has the brains to outmaneuver them.How many Liverpool players do you think would get into the Man City team? Let us know with a comment below. Would you have Philippe Coutinho over David Silva? 3last_img read more

first_img1 Arsene Wenger believes Arsenal can take advantage of a fear of failure from Olympiacos on Wednesday night.The Greek champions are favourites to advance through to the knockout stages of the Champions League as they host the Gunners in a Group F showdown – with Wenger backing his side to be a danger in the latter rounds if they come through this stern test.Having won 3-2 at the Emirates Stadium back in September, Olympiacos can afford to lose to Wenger’s side and still progress.Arsenal meanwhile need to win by a two-goal margin or better that result from earlier in the group to get through, but Wenger feels they can get Olympiacos panicked if they play at their best.“We play against a side that will be motivated but we face that every week,” he said.“Against a side that is at the moment qualified but they can lose what they have and that can create a fear factor, the best way for us to achieve it is to believe in our quality.“Mentally, you prepare yourself to adapt to every situation and give the right response to every situation you face.“We will have to adapt to what is happening on the pitch and to all of the scenarios, accept them and respond.”Arsenal have lost on their three previous visits to the Karaiskakis Stadium but all have come as dead-rubbers at the end of group stages where Wenger’s side have long-since secured qualification.This time around the scenario could not be more contrasting but the Frenchman has backed his team to show their quality and then rattle some cages when the knockout rounds begin in February.“Before when we came here we had already qualified, that is not the case tomorrow night,” he said.“We just want to give absolutely everything to qualify tomorrow, if you want to jump over a hurdle you don’t think what happens if you miss.“If you fall down then you respond, if you want to have a chance to get across you have to give absolutely everything to get over it.“Of course we can be dangerous if we go through because we come from far back.“Overall if you look at the numbers since the start of the group stage, we have played with 10 men in Zagreb, we scored an own goal at home to Olympiacos, every single game we were a bit unlucky but if we get through we will be dangerous that is for sure.“At the moment we have two or three super-favourites (to win the competition) and whoever gets through will have to chase them.” Arsene Wenger last_img read more

They must make Loftus Road a fortress.Fulham entertain Brighton earlier in the day and are 31/20 against a Seagulls side (19/10) who have won both their matches so far this term.Albion are invariably tough to break down and in Lewis Dunk they have one of the best defenders in the division – but for how long?This is another game where I expect to see a narrow home win and Matt Smith looks overpriced at 15/2 with BetVictor to grab the opener at the Cottage.Having come from 2-0 down in stoppage time to rescue a point against a good Ipswich side last weekend, Brentford went down 4-0 to League Two Oxford United in the Capital One Cup.The Bees are 13/8 to pick up all three points at Ashton Gate on Saturday with Bristol City 7/4 and the draw 5/2.That one looks too close to call.

A teacher from Dimakatso Primary School, Meisie Mangwane, said the website would help make classes more exciting while introducing learners to cyberspace. 24 March 2009 The Presidency has launched a section of its website for children, with the aim of promoting interaction between the government and the country’s younger citizens. “As the government, we want to create an environment where you can grow and learn about your government and what it is doing for you,” she said. Tshabalala-Msimang said it was the government’s intention to continuously improve on the website so that in the future it can include critical information such as the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and the African Union Charter on the Rights and Welfare of children.center_img “Computer access is an important issue for our school,” Mangwane told BuaNews.

first_imgMan of the match Michael Lumb, the leading run scorer in the competition, then smashed an unbeaten 82 off just 42 deliveries to take the Sixers to a 10-wicket victory with only 12.3 overs bowled. Haddin finished on 33 not out. ‘It was the pressure’“It was the pressure that we created as a team that affected the Lions,” Haddin told afterwards. The Titans and Highveld Lions came oh so close to making it a dream final for South African cricket fans in the 2012 Champions League Twenty20 competition, which ended on Sunday, but Australia’s Sydney Sixers ruined South African hopes with victories over both teams in the semi-finals and final respectively. Their only defeat in the group stage came against the Sixers, who scored a five-wicket win with an over to spare at Newlands in Cape Town. Big wins, big defeatThe Titans opened their account with a convincing 39-run win over the Perth Scorchers and followed that with an even bigger win by 59 runs over the Auckland Aces. Then came a shocking performance against the Kolkata Knight Riders, who romped to a 99-run thrashing of the Titans. Nathan McCullum, with 3 for 24, and Josh Hazlewood, with 3 for 22, led the way with the ball. The tournament was a personal triumph for the Lions’ Geoffrey Toyana, who took over the coaching reins at the franchise this season. Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material A decision by Brad Haddin to field after the Sixers won the toss proved to be an excellent one as the Lions stumbled to 9 for 4 in the fourth over, with the first four batsmen in the order making just eight runs between them. “We had a very good presence out there. We changed a few things up front and it did work for us. We’ve been building for this game for about two weeks.” 30 October 2012center_img The Titans, meanwhile, also finished second in their group after winning two matches, losing one and having a no result in their other outing. The Delhi Daredevils, with two wins and two no results topped the log. “While Makhaya and Gammie both came from disadvantaged rural areas, Aaron (Soshanguve) and Geoffrey (Soweto) are products of our townships and this is hugely significant for what is potentially South African cricket’s biggest growth area.” Mitchell Starc, who claimed 14 wickets in the Sixers six victories on their way to the title, was named the Player of the Tournament. The Indian Premier League (IPL) had dominated last year’s Champions League tournament and the Chennai Super Kings had beenc crowned champions when the event was previously held in South Africa in 2010, but this time around the host nation supplied two semi-finalists, Australia one and the IPL one. Unexpected successThe Highveld Lions were not expected to excel, but they did, finishing second in Group B behind the Sydney Sixes after some excellent performances that took them to impressive victories over the Chennai Super Kings, Mumbai Indians and Yorkshire Carnegie. Unfortunately, the final, played on the Lions’ home ground, The Wanderers in Johannesburg, was a one-sided affair as the Lions faltered and the Sixers flourished. Significant for cricket developmentCricket South Africa Acting CEO Jacques Faul commented in a statement: “His success off the field, along with that of Aaron Phangiso on it, has probably made this the most significant couple of weeks for the development of our cricket in disadvantaged areas since Makhaya Ntini and Mfuneko Ngam played together for the Proteas during the 2000/01 season. A rained out showdown against the Delhi Daredevils in the last group game ensured both teams advanced to the semi-finals.

first_imgIII. Budget Size Does Not Determine SuccessImage via United ArtistsThe production of Rocky is as much of an underdog story as the film itself. Sylvester Stallone was a struggling actor with a few background character roles under his belt. While broke and unable to find work, Stallone started writing a script in a spiral notebook. He had the first draft of Rocky completed in only three days.The script did find plenty of interested buyers, but no studio was willing to let Stallone star in the film as well. Eventually, Stallone would strike a deal with United Artists. The deal let him star in the film, but the films production budget was cut dramatically. The entire budget was just under $1,000,000.Stallone took the deal, and the movie was shot in 28 days. After its release, Rocky went on to be the highest grossing film of the year — pulling in $225 Million worldwide.IV. Think on Your Toes – Don’t Be Afraid to Make ChangesImage via MGMRocky’s limited budget required the crew and Stallone to work as quickly as possible, which would eventually lead to some minor production issues. For example, the team making the banners for the arena reversed the color of Rocky’s shorts. With the budget they had, there was no way to either fix the banner or even change the fighter’s actual shorts. In a quick moment, Stallone simply added a line to the script making fun of the situation. He did the same when Rocky’s robe was delivered oversized.The film also called for a date scene between Rocky and Adrian. Originally they would go to a popular rink and ice skate. The sequence called for hundreds of extras — which the production couldn’t afford. Instead, the crew filmed an empty rink and added a scene where Rocky bribes a janitor to let them skate after hours.The point is, something unexpected will happen. Don’t try to fix everything, not every problem needs to be solved. A quick fix is often better than losing days or weeks trying to fix a minor issue.V. You Will Make a Bad Film – Go Down, But Not OutImage via United ArtistsRocky V — Enough said.Honestly though, it’s bound to happen. There may be a film you are completely satisfied with, but the audiences don’t like. There are also plenty of times the whole film will be a disaster, and you’ll have to salvage whatever possible. Either way, just finish a project and move on. Every film offers something to learn from. Once this happens, you will then know how not to make a film. VI. Music Sets the ToneImage via United ArtistsAdmit it. You saw this picture and the song already started playing in the back of your head. Bum-Bum-Buuuuum Bum-Bum-Buuuum.Music is a huge part of storytelling, and that should be obvious with this whole franchise. From the original compositions of Bill Conti to the popular radio hits, the Rocky films have always embraced music for montage.Bill Conti’s Gonna Fly Now is an iconic song in its own right. It has not only become synonymous with Rocky, but with the story of every underdog. The film’s score was a massive hit, and Gonna Fly Now charted on the Billboard 200 for five weeks. Gonna Fly Now earned an Oscar Nomination for Best Original Song.This wasn’t even the only time a song from a Rocky film was nominated. Eye of the Tiger by Survivor also an Oscar Nomination for Best Original Song for Rocky III.Shameless Plug: Did you know this is also a production music site? Just sayin’…VII. Your Work Will Leave a Lasting Impact on SomeoneImage via MGMIt’s been 39 years since the first Rocky hit theaters. Sylvester Stallone had imagined that Rocky Balboa would be the final chapter in the Rocky saga. Then he was approached by up-and-coming director Ryan Coogler.Coogler had grown up on the Rocky franchise, his father watched the films repeatedly. His father would even play scenes from the movies,The scene he would always show was where Rocky is in the chapel of the hospital and Burgess Meredith, in the character of Mickey, comes in and tries to motivate him to get him out of whatever funk he’s in. Even as Rocky’s bent over, his wife is in a coma and he just had a son he hasn’t even held yet. Rocky doesn’t say anything in the scene. He just sits there and listens. Burgess Meredith goes through the gamut of emotions from frustration, to yelling. It’s a beautiful, beautiful scene, and that’s the scene that my dad always would play to get me fired up. – DeadlineCoogler turned to Stallone and asked him about continuing the franchise. The upcoming Creed takes the series in a whole new direction, as the aging Rocky takes on the role of mentor and trainer to the son of Apollo Creed.The true legacy of any artist’s work is the impact it makes. Most of the time, the creator will never even know that they’ve changed someone’s life. That is part of being an artist. Creating work for others, with the hope that what you make will live on. In some way, each project you work on will be a memory for someone. That’s why you should make the best of every project. You never know how you will truly impact others. The story of Rocky – the movie franchise, not the character – is a great source of inspiration and wisdom for anyone interested in making films.Top Image: Sylvester Stallone on the set of Rocky IV via MGMCreed, the seventh installment of the Rocky franchise, is about to hit theaters. Let’s take a look at how one small film used new technology, great music, and incredible editing to create one of the biggest film franchises ever. Here are 7 things filmmakers can learn from the Rocky franchise.I. Montage and Propaganda Are PowerfulImage via MGMThe Rocky films had a huge impact on making the modern movie montage. The first film set the tone with an iconic training montage that went on to be replicated in countless films, including nearly every sports film made since. Rocky went on to win an Oscar for Best Film Editing.Outside of the first film, Rocky IV is known for an incredible amount of montages. Heck, 31.9% of the entire film is just montages, and the movie is still awesome. The Rocky IV montages tie closely to the original Soviet Montage Theory.Sergei Eisenstein first developed the intellectual montage in Battleship Potemkin. The film was a propaganda piece designed to influence an audience with a tertium quid, or a third thing people associated with two elements. In the infamous Odessa Steps sequence, the audience would see soldiers firing among a crowd and immediately feel helpless and oppressed. That feeling of oppression is the tertium quid.Rocky IV is an incredible piece of American propaganda. The film features Rocky training in a cabin out in the wilderness, while his opponent trains in high-tech facilities with a whole team of scientists. Those two images give American audiences a feeling of perseverance no matter the opponent, a tertium quid of strength.You may think that a montage is cheating, but it really is a great technique to use. You can control your audience’s emotions with a powerful montage. It’s all in the edit.II. Embrace New TechnologyImage via NPRWhen Rocky director John G. Avildsen wanted to film part of the original training montage, he wanted the audience to move with Rocky. To accomplish this, Avildsen turned to camera operator Garret Brown. Brown had recently created a new camera stabilizer, which he called the Steadicam.Garret Brown had recently used the device on two other films, and the footage had absolutely blown everyone away. Rocky was one of the first films to use the Steadicam, which has since become a standard piece of filmmaking equipment.last_img read more

first_imgAs a section of the Congress is against any move to support the Shiv Sena to form a government in Maharashtra if its help is sought, past instances show that though the two parties have never shared power, they have helped each other on several occasions. Sena was among the few political parties to support the Emergency declared by Indira Gandhi in 1975. The then party chief, the late Bal Thackeray, had said the move was in the interest of the country. Two years later, when the Emergency was called off, neither the Congress nor the Sena could win a majority in the Mumbai municipal polls, with the Janata Party winning more seats. Thackeray had then lent support to the late Murli Deora to become the mayor of Mumbai. To justify this decision, the Sena had said the Congress leader was married to a Marathi woman and was the son-in-law of the Marathi community. In 1980, the Congress again received the Sena’s help in the Assembly elections as a result of the personal bond between Thackeray and senior Congress leader Abdul Rehman Antulay, the then chief minister. Senior journalist and political commentator Abhay Deshpande said there have been many instances where both the Congress and Sena made moves benefiting each other. “They have never shared power. But there is a history of both helping each other out,” he said.The Sena rarely extended open support to the Congress after joining hands with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in late 1980s and turning to hardcore Hindutva ideology. In 2007, however, it went against the BJP by supporting the United Progressive Alliance’s (UPA) candidate, Pratibha Patil, in the presidential election. The Sena had played the Marathi card then too, saying it couldn’t oppose a Maharashtrian. Five years later, the party again backed the UPA candidate, Pranab Mukherjee, for the President’s post. This time, Mr. Mukherjee’s personal visit to Matoshree, the Thackeray family residence, did the trick. Despite being political opponents all their lives, Thackeray had also sided with Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar, who was with the Congress before forming the NCP in 1999. The Sena founder had gone to the extent of saying that his party would support Mr. Pawar if he were to become prime minister.last_img read more

first_imgNayan Shah an under-19 cricketer from Maharashtra arrested by the Kanpur police in connection with a betting racket in connection with the ongoing Indian Premier League is a prized catch but just a cog in the wheel. Investigations have revealed that he was just acting as per the orders of several handles spread in at least four states.The cellphone records of Nayan indicated that he was in touch with over 12 bookies spread in Gujarat, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan.The most prominent face that has emerged in the investigation with whom Nayan was in regular touch and providing vital information about pitch was Bunty Khandelwal. A team of Kanpur police with the help of Ajmer police had conducted a raid in Ajmer at the suspected hideout of Bunty. While the team managed to get vital evidence apart from 25 cellphones, Bunty managed to give the police a slip moments before the raid.

Nayan could be interrogated just for six hours after the arrest by the Kanpur police and now the police will move for his police custody remand.It’s learnt that Nayan was given a contract for all the IPL matches and he was tasked not just to provide information about the pitch but also ensure it was tampered by excessive watering. The design was simple — over water the pitch to make it slow and pass on the information to the bookies who would bet in hundreds of crore knowing well if the pitch in question was a bowlers pitch or that of a batsman.advertisementNayan was in touch with Ramesh Bihari, who was an employee of Green Park stadium in Kanpur, where the matches were to be played. Ramesh was paid Rs 20000 to put additional water on pitch to make it slow by Nayan and also click photographs of the pitch. The police have recovered photographs of the pitch sent by Ramesh to Nayan who in turn forwarded it to bookies with his own comments.The syndicate did not stop here. Nayan also tried contacting some players who stayed in the same Hotel where Nayan checked in and was even adjusted in room No. 1733 on the 17th floor.Nayan in a voice message to Bunty Khandelwal indicated and which is now with the police that he had established his contacts with two IPL players who were allegedly ready to influence 7 to 8 matches for them. The police is not divulging any information on the identity of these players and is neither ruling out the possibility of their interrogation in the near future.On the other hand, the police is under the impression that Nayan is a goldmine of information so he is likely to be taken on police custody remand for interrogation on Monday.Meanwhile raids are expected in several parts if the country in the days to come.

first_img Indo-Asian News Service New DelhiSeptember 21, 2019UPDATED: September 21, 2019 15:03 IST A man ran towards the pitch during the second T20 international (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSAnti-Corruption Unit (ACU) chief Ajit Singh has warned hosting associations against any security lapseACU chief has asked for beefed up security inside the stadium to avoid scenarios like in MohaliThe first episode of invasion in the second T20I took place when the South Africans were battingWith the first game in Dharamsala on September 15 washed off, the Indian and South Africa team arrived in Mohali on September 16 only to realise that there was no security arrangement made for the players by Chandigarh Police — due to non-payment of dues. While the team hotel provided for security for the teams on the first day, the police were back in charge on the second day. But Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) chief Ajit Singh has warned hosting associations against any security lapse — on and off the field.Speaking to IANS, a board functionary said that a mail has been sent to all the hosting associations and they have been told that such a lapse will not be tolerated as it can lead to a dangerous situation.”ACU chief Ajit Singh has written to all the hosting associations and has made it clear that such a lapse will not be tolerated in the future. Lack of security arrangement can be a major issue and can even lead to a dangerous situation because we are all aware that fans can sometimes go overboard in order to show their love for their favourite players,” the functionary said.In fact, in the mail, accessed by IANS, the ACU chief has asked for beefed up security inside the stadium to avoid scenarios like in Mohali when two fans invaded the pitch.”To deter pitch invasions, security staff should be positioned between the boundary rope and the public fencing. The security staff should be positioned to face the crowd. The security personnel should be placed at equidistant intervals around the boundary and be placed in the immediate vicinity of traditional boundary fielding positions including long off, long on, deep fine leg, deep third man, deep mid-wicket and deep cover,” the mail read.advertisementThe first episode of invasion in the second T20I took place when the South Africans were batting. The invader was chased down by the security guards and taken away.The second incident took place with India skipper Virat Kohli at the crease and a die-hard fan breaking the security cordon to come in and shake hands with the batsman. Kohli was clearly taken aback by the turn of events and before the fan could reach him, the guards caught hold of the fan and took him away.In fact, this isn’t the first time that such a thing has happened in India and the likes of M.S. Dhoni and Kohli often face this when out in the middle. But the BCCI doesn’t wish to take any chance and the ACU chief has made it clear that these lapses should be stopped with immediate effect.Also Read | Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan set ‘squad goals’ with India teammates at NCA gymAlso see:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for Sports news, scores and updates.Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

first_imgWINNIPEG – An upcoming Manitoba Opera production of “Madama Butterfly” has sparked debate over how the more than century-old tale of a doomed marriage between a Japanese teenager and an older American man fits with modern views about race.The opera company’s website describes Giacomo Puccini’s famous work as “the intensely moving story of a devoted young Japanese woman who is loved and betrayed by an American naval officer.”“Set in Japan at the dawn of the 20th century, East meets West in this clash of values and traditions.”Jenny Heijun Wills, an associate professor in the University of Winnipeg’s English department, has raised concerns about staging an opera she says reinforces harmful stereotypes of Asian women.“We may not be able to hold Puccini to our contemporary standards, but we can hold each other accountable in our contemporary moment,” she said.The female protagonist, young geisha Cio-Cio San, believes her marriage to the naval officer will last forever, but he leaves her to return to the United States shortly after they are wed. She bears their son, but the child is taken away from her years later when the officer returns to Japan with his American wife. Cio-Cio San kills herself for reasons of honour.“There are actual material consequences to this narrative of Asian women … always being patient, always being submissive, being sexually available for mostly European white foreigners to overtake,” said Wills, who is also director of the university’s Critical Race Network.Larry Desrochers, executive director of Manitoba Opera, said some concerns with the story are valid.“The original story is really influenced with this kind of imperialistic attitude and obviously there’s still vestiges of it in the opera today,” he said.But many of its themes are universal and timeless, he added.“It tells the story of a young girl who’s misled and mistreated by an older man that’s still relevant today.”Desrochers said it was important to cast a Japanese woman as lead. Renowned soprano Hiromi Omura will be playing the part of Cio-Cio San for three shows next month. When the opera company did “Madama Butterfly” eight years ago, a Chinese singer had the role.Omura, who lives in France, has performed in “Madama Butterfly” 100 times around the world since 2004. The singer, who remembers singing arias in her family’s traditional Japanese garden as a child, said the story resonates with her.“For me, it’s a story of a woman who lived with all of her might, even in a very hard situation,” she said. “Maybe somebody in the audience can be moved, can be touched by her way of life.”In the lead-up to the production, the opera has organized a talk about interracial relationships and a panel discussion on cultural appropriation.Wills said she takes issue with the panel partly because Omura is the only Asian voice on it and, as a member of the cast, is unlikely to have a critical take.The professor also said cultural appropriation isn’t the main issue with “Madama Butterfly,” because the opera is not telling a Japanese story through a white lens and capitalizing from it. Rather, she said, it tells a western story that happens to be set in Japan.Desrochers said the goal is to have a wide-ranging discussion with people in Winnipeg’s broader arts community.The Japanese Cultural Association of Manitoba was invited early on to partner with Manitoba Opera on “Madama Butterfly,” said president Art Miki.The group is holding a sake and sushi night next week and will have information booths and crafts for sale during the shows. Proceeds go toward the association’s fundraising efforts.“It’s a way of promoting our culture here with a wider audience,” said Miki, who also said he takes no issue with the staging of “Madama Butterfly” because it reflects attitudes from a different time.“I have to say, ‘Well, that’s the way it was,’” he said. “Otherwise, we’re in the position of trying to censor everything that exists that may appear to be not acceptable today.”— By Lauren Krugel in Calgarylast_img read more

MONTREAL — Flight simulator company CAE is moving ahead with a $700-million project to develop its next generation of simulation platforms over five years — with help from the federal government.Denis Lebel, the minister responsible for economic development for Quebec, announced a $250 million loan.In making the announcement during a visit to CAE’s Montreal headquarters Thursday, Lebel said the money will help the world’s largest maker of aircraft simulators to keep its competitive edge.“The market is changing quickly and with this support, they will be able to play the game against any competitors,” he told reporters.Stephane Lefebvre, CAE’s chief financial officer, said there’s a 15-year repayment period for the $250 million loan, but it is not interest free.He said the company will begin to repay the loan over 15 years, starting after 2020.Lefebvre was evasive when asked if the project would create any additional jobs.“It’s highly dependent on the market and the number of simulators that we’ll be able to sell over the next few years,” he said. “We’ll maintain highly skilled employees, but we believe we’ll also create some jobs.”The money is being provided under Canada’s Strategic Aerospace and Defence Initiative. Better known as SADI, the program supports research and development in the aerospace, defence, space and security industries.CAE flight simulators are used around the world to train airline and military pilots and cockpit crews.The company also provides other training equipment and services for the civil aviation and defence markets.CAE employs 4,000 people in 15 locations across Canada, most of them in Montreal, and around 4,000 in the rest of the world.On the Toronto Stock Exchange, CAE’s shares (TSX:CAE) were little-changed on Thursday. read more

The three European Union (EU) countries, Britain, France and Germany, known as the European Three, who have been trying to resolve the issue, said they would seek a special session of the Board of Governors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the UN nuclear watchdog, to discuss the way ahead. They called on Iran not to resume nuclear activities and warned that any resumption would end their negotiations.The Board, as part of its mandate to prevent the proliferation of nuclear weapons, has the power to refer the matter to the UN Security Council, which could impose political and economic sanctions. Iran has told the IAEA that it would resume activities at the Uranium Conversion Facility (UCF) in Esfahan as of yesterday. Enriched uranium can be used for peaceful purposes such as generating energy or for making nuclear weapons.Several countries, including the United States, insist that Iran is seeking such weapons, but Iran denies this and last year suspended all enrichment-related and reprocessing activities as a good-will gesture while the European Three sought to resolve the issue.”The Secretary-General urges restraint and patience on the part of the Iranian authorities,” UN spokesman Stéphane Dujarric told the daily briefing today. “He very much believes that they should wait for the latest proposals from the European Three before making any attempts to restart their nuclear activities.””In his dealings with the three European countries, the Secretary-General is convinced that they are very much constructively engaged in a search for a solution and therefore encourages the Iranian authorities to continue to work with them. The Secretary-General very much supports the dialogue between the European Three and the Iranian authorities,” Mr. Dujarric added.The IAEA has also called on Iran to continue the dialogue and not take any action that could undermine agency inspections. It said yesterday that in order to implement effective safeguards it would need to install additional surveillance equipment at the UCF in Esfahan and would not be able to do so until some time next week.In a letter to Iran today, which they also transmitted to the Vienna-based IAEA, the European Three said a resumption of activities would breach agreements Iran had reached with them as well as the IAEA Board’s resolution last November calling for a continued moratorium.”It will also further heighten international concern about the real objective of Iran’s nuclear programme,” they said, noting that they had already informed Iran that they would be presenting their ideas for a long-term agreement covering political, security, economic and technological issues by 7 August.”We will be seeking a special session of the IAEA Board of Governors in the next few days to discuss the way ahead,” they wrote. “Were Iran to resume currently suspended activities, our negotiations would be brought to an end, and we would have no option but to pursue other courses of action.”Iran’s nuclear programme has been a matter of concern since 2003, when the IAEA determined that the country had for almost two decades concealed its nuclear activities in breach of its obligations under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). read more

TORONTO – Sun Life Financial Inc. (TSX:SLF) and Malaysian state-owned investment fund Khazanah Nasional are teaming up to purchase 98 per cent of a Malaysian life insurance company from its two current owners.Toronto-based Sun Life and Khazanah are purchasing the CIMB Aviva Assurance life insurance company as well as CIMB Aviva Takaful, which provides Sharia law compliant insurance, for a total shared cost of $586 million.CIMB Group, which has its head office in the Malaysian capital, will retain a two per cent share in the company but Aviva, one of the U.K.’s largest insurance groups, will make an exit from Malaysia to focus on other parts of its business.The deal includes a new 20-year exclusive agreement that will allow the life insurance companies to sell products to CIMB Bank’s client base. Sun Life has a similar arrangement with CIMB’s banking operation in Indonesia.Recent media reports have said Manulife Financial Corp. (TSX:MFC), another Canadian company that has been growing in China and elsewhere in the Asia-Pacific region, had also been interested in making a deal with Aviva and CIMB.Sun Life chief executive Dean Connor acknowledged in an interview Thursday that his company faced competition for Aviva’s stake in the Malaysian business but added the deal will pay off in the long run.“It’s an economy that’s showing very good and steady growth. . . . And yet, the penetration in the insurance market is still underdeveloped,” Connor said.In addition, Sun Life thinks there’s an opportunity to use its expertise in pensions to fill an emerging demand in Malaysia.Connor said the deal’s value is expected to be neutral to Sun Life in the early years and positive over the life of the 20-year agreement with CIMB.“That’s the nature of our business,” he said. “Even in Canada, some of the products we sell on individual insurance . . . take many, many years to produce returns to shareholders.”“Other products, like pensions and group insurance, have a faster payback period and those are certainly areas that we’ll be looking at for Malaysia,” Connor said.Sun Life and Khazanah are each acquiring 49 per cent of the company from Aviva International Holdings Ltd. and CIMB Group Holdings Berhad (CIMB Group), respectively.The transaction includes an exclusive right to distribute insurance products, including takaful products, through CIMB Bank’s network across Malaysia. This network includes 312 branches across the country and eight million customers.“This transaction is perfectly aligned with our strategy for expanding our footprint in Asia,” said Kevin Strain the president of Sun Life Financial in Asia.He said Khazanah and CIMB are “very strong partners with a broad distribution platform and we are investing in a country with one of the most developed economies in the ASEAN region and a growing middle class.”The transaction is expected to close by the first half of 2013, pending regulatory approvals in Canada and Malaysia.Sun Life shares were up 35 cents, or 1.25 per cent, at C$28.29 in Toronto in late-day trading Thursday. by David Paddon, The Canadian Press Posted Jan 17, 2013 3:34 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Sun Life Financial to expand presence in Malaysia read more

“Stability and sustainable peace can be achieved in Rakhine state when the needs of all communities are met,” said Haoliang Xu, Director of the Regional Bureau for Asia and the Pacific of the UN Development Programme (UNDP). Rakhine is Myanmar’s second poorest region, with a population of more than three million, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA). Restrictions on the freedom of movement of hundreds of thousands of people in Rakhine severely compromise their basic rights to food, health, education and livelihoods, leaving them dependent on humanitarian assistance.In addition, several waves of clashes between Buddhist and Muslim communities, the first of which occurred in June 2012, have affected hundreds of thousands of families in Rakhine. “We need both to address immediate needs of all vulnerable people and to increase the capacity of the state to provide quality basic services including healthcare, education, water, livelihoods and infrastructure,” said Mr. Xu. He also observed that “more work is needed to improve relations between different ethnic groups in Rakhine and to find durable solutions for displaced people.”Both Mr. Xu and OCHA Director of Operations John Ging commended the Government and its partners for their efforts, while stressing that greater humanitarian assistance and development efforts are urgently needed to benefit all vulnerable people in Rakhine.“It is clear that progress has been made since my last visit one year ago and that is truly impressive given the challenges and setbacks you have faced. However, we must all redouble our efforts to do more,” said Mr. Ging. “The humanitarian situation is still unacceptably dire for far too many people, but thanks to the outstanding efforts of aid organisations the humanitarian situation is now stabilizing.” During the two-day visit, the officials saw the positive results of inter-communal dialogue, in the construction of new roads and bridges to improve economic activity between communities.“These projects give us a real basis for hope but we must not underestimate the challenges ahead, one of the most critical being a just and equitable resolution to the citizenship issue,” said Mr. Ging.During the two-day visit to Rakhine that began on Monday, Mr. Xu and Mr. Ging visited camps in Sittwe and Pauk Taw where the UN and international organizations are providing humanitarian assistance, as well as villages in Minbya and Sittwe where UNDP is working with communities to strengthen social cohesion and improve basic services.Yesterday, they joined government officials to inaugurate construction work of a bridge that will connect four villages to the Rakhine capital, supported by UNDP and the state government. Today, the two UN officials were scheduled to hold high-level meetings in Nay Pyi Taw, including with Vice President U Sai Mauk Kham. read more

first_imgValve has promised to launch Steam for Linux before the end of 2012, and last month it was confirmed that an external beta would be happening in October. It’s limited to 1,000 people, but the point is Valve seems to be on track to meet the release target of this year.What we don’t know is how many games Steam for Linux will have when it does launch. Steam for Mac had over 50 on launch day, and while we can’t guarantee that level of support will be reached, we can point to the fact 15 games on Steam support Linux already and therefore should be available on release.The first of those games is already known about and confirmed by Valve as being a launch title: Left 4 Dead 2. It’s Valve’s test game for the platform and the first in-house title to run on Linux.As for the other 14, they consist of titles that developers have already ported to Linux and decided to sell on Steam. The include:Amnesia: The Dark ProjectCubemenCrusader Kings IIDynamite JackEversionGalcon FusionSerious Sam 3: BFESolar 2SpaceChemSteel StormSuperbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EPTrine 2WaveformWorld of GooThose games were compiled using a program called CDR Parser which looks at Steam’s Content Description Record for each game and compiles a list based on certain criteria. In this case it’s games flagged as Linux compatible as tagged by Valve. With that being the case it seems likely these 14 games should be available on launch day of Steam for Linux.More at Marlamin’s CDR Parser, via Muktwarelast_img read more

first_img 6 Comments ON A SULTRY day in Bermuda, Andrew Browne was delivered the conclusive evidence to a theory that had been rattling around in his head for months on end.Rugby player was not who he was any more, nor who he wanted to be.He still loves the sport, cherishes the memories and misses the kinship of the dressing room, yet it was time to put it behind him.***The 156-cap Connacht stalwart bade farewell to the Sportsground back in April, happily slotting in behind the long shadow cast by John Muldoon as he bowed out in glory with a conversion in a seven-try trouncing of Leinster. Browne and Muldoon celebrate the win over Leinster last season. Source: Gary Carr/INPHOMuldoon deserved his day in the sun, but so few players actually get that all-action protagonist’s role to play in their final act. Browne’s last day wearing the eagle on his chest was a painful 16-minute run against the Ospreys in February, and that was his sole appearance of the season, preceded as it was by an Achilles injury and ended by a popped AC joint in his shoulder.Connacht announced his exit in mid-April and Browne resolved to get his body freshened up over summer. He could have prolonged his career by leaping at offers from clubs in England and France, but there was just nothing that seemed worth uprooting himself from Galway and hitting the hard trail of the journeyman.“They’re not looking for a 31-year-old second row who’s had quite a lot of injuries,” Browne tells The42.The reality is: I probably had enough of rugby I made that decision myself, but then the offers weren’t out there that would really tempt me back into playing at that time.”And so he waited, immersing himself in the in-between stage.“I wanted to take a bit of a break away from it. Get the body in order, but also reignite the fire to keep playing.“I went away on holiday, got a couple of decent offers, nothing spectacular, but thinking about it was nearly ruining my holiday. So I said ‘no’ to them and thought: ‘I’m obviously not ready yet. I’ll take a bit more time’. Then the longer that went on the less and less I wanted to go back playing.“Your body does get better, but your mind is saying: ‘no, I couldn’t imagine now, going into pre-season. I couldn’t imagine going into rugby training’ and stuff like that.”Some players feel something almost akin to Stockholm syndrome when they are left to their own devices. No tight schedule laid out, diet restrictions lapse and even a day’s clothing suddenly becomes a choice. No more club suit, no navy training gear on a Monday, but grey in European week.It was different for Browne. He thoroughly enjoyed the freedom and, in hindsight, he reckons his subconscious had already made its mind up. Though at the time, he would insist that he wasn’t retired and there was still a full array of options.“I was losing weight at a rapid rate as well. There’s no real reason to keep it on.“‘I’m not playing rugby at the minute, if I did go back I could easily put it back on,’ telling myself that. Knowing the reality is it’s not that easy.”On he rolled to the autumn, and perhaps the sight of a new season in full swing brought the realisation to him.“‘I’m pretty happy where I am at the minute,’” he said to himself and those closest, no need to alert the masses with a screenshot of his Notes app, “I’m happy to leave my rugby-playing career behind and move on.”Putting rugby behind him was easy. The sticking point was the same one experienced by so many retired athletes from team sports. After 11 years at the heart of a seriously close-knit and energetic community that is a sporting changing room – quite literally in a pack – post-rugby the player becomes very much an entity unto himself. File photo: Browne watches a Connacht training session from the sidelines. Source: James Crombie/INPHOLast week, Browne linked up with Rugby Players Ireland, Marcus Horan and fellow former Connacht men JP Cooney and Ronan Loughney to chat about their post-playing experience with the current crop at the Sportsground – many of whom won’t see the end of this dream job coming.Rugby is not a career to sustain you for life, though, and matters of finance were his key point when speaking to the current squad.“The big thing we tried to get across in the transition talk last week was that there might be a period when you don’t go straight into work. Probably the majority of rugby players leaving the game at the minute don’t necessarily know what they’re going to do. So there’ll be a time when they’re not bringing in any money.No matter how well-prepared you are financially, it’s still not easy when you’re looking at your bank account every month and you see it dwindling down without anything coming in. That’s been the difficult one over the last few months.”The temporary solution during this point of transition is the obvious one. After 13 years in work, Browne has been collecting the dole to keep him from fully eating into whatever savings he gathered“It’s a long way from rugby, financially, but any rugby player or anyone, shouldn’t have a problem going on social welfare. Especially if you’ve worked for so many years, you’ve earned a lot of that money back.”He is far from fully removed from rugby, becoming increasingly enamoured with coaching after bringing his insights to Galwegians’ defence and line-out. But the very act of talking through his current state of affairs with former peers and fellow former pros was a benefit for Browne.“It helped even just chatting about it. Marcus, Locks, JP and myself all went down different routes. It was a good idea by Rugby Players Ireland to have that and give players the impression of what it might be like when you finish — it’s good to let them know it’s not all bad when you finish rugby, but also to prepare for that time as well.”***Browne’s regular refrain is that there was no one day, no one instance when he became retired. The tag just formed itself gradually; an ‘i’ one week, an ‘r’ the next, then a ‘t’ and the new era before him dawned.He knew he was a former player when Fionn Carr extended an invitation to play in the annual legends get-together/ tournament in Bermuda. He was keeping himself very fit and not long removed from rugby, so it sounded like a cakewalk. And he happily jetted  off to the Caribbean ready to run riot.“‘Yeah this would be nice going out for a bit of a runaround,’” he thought, “I had visions of making big massive breaks and stuff like that.“You get out there, get some contact and you’re sucked into a maul at one stage.And I’m there: ‘ah here, I’ve no interest in being on a rugby pitch right now’.“That was the nail in the coffin to really assure me my rugby playing days were up.”Those playing days were a hell of a journey. Browne has played and battled through some of the western province’s lowest ebbs and also the most sensational high. A Pro12 final victory over Leinster in Edinburgh was the most glorious glittering chapter for anyone connected to the club.It was an unbelievable feat to witness. Imagining it was no small struggle either.“I remember when Pat (Lam) came in and his vision was to make Connacht the best team in Ireland in five years. We all rowed behind it and said ‘yeah great’. But deep down I don’t think anyone fully believed it.” Browne moves in to tackle Ian Madigan with AJ MacGinty during the 2016 Pro12 final win over Leinster.. Source: James Crombie/INPHOBelief or not, they powered on and earned the reputation of a wonderfully entertaining team, flinging passes around with abandon. Yet when push came to shove in low-scoring contests at the business end of the season, the experience of all those hard days slogging it out came to bear and Connacht seemed to surprise Leinster and then Glasgow with their ability to hang tough and dig out a win in the lead-up to the grand finale.Browne credits Lam with setting the vision and also driving the daily standards to make it a reality. The Samoan’s pre-match message that Murrayfield would be a celebration came to pass with devastating effect.Having been involved with Connacht for so long up to that point, and looking back on my career now, I count myself hugely fortunate and lucky to have been involved with Connacht at that time and to have been on the pitch that day.” “Then the following day, back to Galway with thousands lining the streets. I still look at pictures of us up on the bus that day and it’s hard to believe that it actually happened.“Not just for the players, for the fans who turned out you could see how much it meant.” Browne and Ronan Loughney proudly parade the Pro12 trophy through Eyre square. Source: James Crombie/INPHOThe Pro12 success was by some distance the pinnacle of Browne’s career.  But nine years earlier, he lifted silverware in an Ireland jersey as the engine room of Eric Elwood’s Grand Slam-winning U20s team. It’s that quality crop of 2007 who Browne’s fellow Connacht men Niall Murray and Dylan Tierney-Martin are vying to emulate when they take on Wales in Colwyn Bay tomorrow.In ’07, the Galway lock helped to set a firm base up front — with Cian Healy in the row ahead, Sean O’Brien or Tommy O’Donnell behind — for a stellar back-line featuring Felix Jones, Darren Cave, Keith Earls and Ian Keatley. Source: Morgan Treacy/INPHO“Our first game against Wales, we were on the back foot for the whole game,” he says, digging into his memory bank, noting how Luke Fitzgerald’s withdrawal actually brought the match-winner into the game, “Felix came in at fullback and scored two tries and we won that game.“We started believing then.”England and France came to Athlone and those victories over the traditional superpowers marked very special nights for the Connacht contingent and they went on to complete the Slam in a dramatic finale, coming back from 20-7 down to Italy in Benevento to win 25-36.The trophy-toting revelry would have done well to get out of hand.“We were stuck in some hotel, it wasn’t even near the town, we were miles out. But the Italian team were back there too, so we had our celebration there. A few weeks after, we had a celebration dinner up in Dublin and properly celebrated… ended up in Coppers I think.” Good group: Dan McFarland and Eric Elwood with their 2007 Grand Slam-winners. Source: Dan Sheridan/INPHOHowever great a boost it was to taste serious success, lift a trophy and claim a medal, such feats remained the realm of fantasy for Connacht – not all that long removed from a threat of being wound up. The Grand Slam stands as a terrific achievement for Browne, but the rigors of a professional season would come as an enormous step up.“The reality check of senior rugby comes in pretty quick. But (20s) does expose you to higher standards. The academies that time in Leinster, Munster and Ulster were far more advanced then in Connacht.“We had huge battles of seasons where you’re struggling. We lost 13 in a row and finally getting a win in the Heineken Cup.“It’s difficult because you’re going in week in week out, sitting through the review on a Monday and you’re trying to put a brave face on, trying to be as positive as you can.“But it’s difficult for everyone in the organisation to keep grinding. I suppose it comes back to the nature of Connacht people they show a lot of resilience because of what happened in the past.“Then over the years, the culture changes, we start to get more success and the standards of the whole place just rose. Better players coming in, better players coming from the academy and that had a vital part of Connacht’s success then.”***Browne was there through every step of the transition, through the long hard shoulder-to-wheel seasons with fruitless ends, the dispiriting losses and when the only constant was an honest will to get better.He was established in the setup when Lam arrived and radically shifted the outlook and brought about an eye-opening 2013 win in Toulouse. A result that made so much more sense with three years of hindsight than it did on a dark December night. Browne with his shoulder to the wheel against Treviso in 2012. Source: Billy Stickland/INPHOIt’s all behind him now. He is more than happy to put his gumshield away and shake off the tag of ‘rugby player’. The transition between careers is not one to be rushed through as there are so many aspects to come to terms with. Financially, he has applied to NUIG to build on his degree in economics and geography with a teaching qualification.Mentally, the loss of the dressing room camaraderie has been a challenge, but he has worked to offset that with the physical challenge of training with his brother Damien – also a former professional rugby player, but currently intent on climbing the highest mountain on each continent.“Back in November,” the younger Browne recounts, “he comes and asks ‘what are you doing in January?’ And I knew where it was going anyway, knew he was climbing Aconcagua (in the Andes) in January.‘Eh, I’ve no plans, really’‘Do you fancy climbing this?’‘No.’“Mountains… people who climb obviously know how tough they are, but I can’t imagine what he’s been through. He did Kilimanjaro, Aconcagua, Elbrus and he says they’re some of the toughest things he’s ever done.“He’s been really pushed to his limit and his limit is,” he pauses, “way out there.”Andrew isn’t one to undermine what he might be capable of either. One offer he does take up from Damien is the an invite to join in with his training programme. And in August and the brothers found themselves acting as mutually beneficial drivers for one another as they pushed themselves physically. Browne celebrates the Pro12 title success between John Muldoon and Tiernan O’Halloran. Source: James Crombie/INPHOA fraternity outside the dressing room and a routine to put some sort of shape on all that the freedom from constraints of rugby.“It’s been really good, obviously physically, but really good on the mental side of things as well. That you have that physical outlet after finishing rugby.“We’d train early in the morning, 7am most mornings. Then you might go for a sea swim after.”“He has a really good way of looking at things. You’re starting your day with two really hard things: the gym session then a sea swim in the west of Ireland in winter when nobody really wants to get in. So if you start your day with two hard things, the rest of the day is easier after that.“I must say, he’s on to something. After that, things seem easier and you go about your day and there’s no challenge that feels too big.”Bernard Jackman joins Murray Kinsella and Ryan Bailey on The42 Rugby Weekly as Ireland bid to spoil Wales’ Grand Slam party in Cardiff, and the U20s target their own piece of history.

first_imgIt was only a matter of time. Pokemon Go continues to rock the planet as the most popular mobile game ever made, and wouldn’t you know it, someone went and made a porn parody.If you’re unfamiliar with porn parodies… you’re in for a very weird treat. Starting a few years back with films like Pirates of the Caribbean and Star Wars, porn companies decided to embrace the thinly-veiled plots and insane camp that they’ve always been known for and go all-in on making ridiculous parody films.From there, we got films like Who’s Nailin’ Paylin (a riff on the former vice presidential nominee). Game of Bones: Winter is Cumming, Flesh Gordon, Edward Penishands and countless more. Now we can add Poke-mon Ho! to that list.Actress Penny Pax assumes the role of Misty (who’s outfit is largely unchanged from the show, unusual for a porn parody) as she tries to catch Pokemon on her phone. HoloFilm Productions is making the film, which is already available to watch if you are so inclined.The video is available entirely in virtual reality form (because of course it is) on (NSFW, obviously). Like most porn parodies, it’s completely ridiculous as is the marketing and advertising around it, like this tweet from producer Anna Lee features some eye-rollingly terrible (but also spot-on) Poke-puns.Coming soon to a Pokestop near you. @PennyPax as Misty in an amazing performance that will make you Combusken!— Anna Lee (@AnnaLeeVRX) July 31, 2016Sometimes it’s easy to forget just how true Rule 34 is, then I see something like this.last_img read more

But what was previously thought to represent a single breed apparently consists of at least five genetic lineages.“We weren’t surprised to find two or three [species],” Bob Murphy, senior curator of herpetology at the Royal Ontario Museum’s Center for Biodiversity and Conservation Biology, told National Geographic.But “we were surprised at just how much diversity was there,” Murphy, corresponding author on a recent study, said. “At least five and up to eight species, that was quite a shock.”Some of those newfound varieties, however, may remain a mystery: Among their native rocky mountain streams and lakes of China, A. davidianus is threatened by poaching and human intervention.The amphibian is considered a luxury food item (gross) and important source of traditional medicines; despite conservation efforts, the once-widespread animal is now critically endangered.Most of those found in the wild have been raised on farms, their hybrid offspring released “under well-intentioned, but misguided, conservation management,” according to a paper published in the journal Current Biology.“The system begins to break down, and then you end up with lower developmental rates and a bunch of inefficient salamanders that can result in a population loss,” Murphy said. “You mix all of that together and the salamanders are lost.”If this continues, he explained, those five-to-eight species could dwindle to one—or none—in the next two decades. Which may have a negative effect on Chinese and global ecosystems. Only time will tell.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

There was no hierarchy, it was just in the best interest of USA Basketball and the young ladies we work with. They are more than just colleagues, they’re friends, so I’m really excited to be back alongside them.”2019 will also be Close’s third USA Basketball coaching assignment after she was an assistant coach for the 2018 USA U18 National Team and a court coach at the 2017 USA Women’s U23 National Team Training Camp. Close recently completed her eighth season at UCLA (2011-12 to present) and has compiled an overall record of 172-99 (.635).”It’s an honor to be a part of the organization,” Close said. “I learn so much from the other coaches and colleagues that I get a chance to work with and I get a chance to help grow the game. That’s a pretty cool combination: represent your country, grow as a coach, and grow the game. That’s a trifecta of winning. I’m just really thrilled to have the opportunity to represent my country and to have a whole lot of fun in the process.”In 2018-19, the Bruins finished 22-13 overall and 12-6 in the Pacific-12 Conference and advanced to their fourth straight NCAA Tournament Sweet 16. On Feb. 10, the Bruins upset No. 17 Utah and made school history by scoring 40 points in the fourth quarter, which was the highest point tally ever in a single quarter. In the Pac-12 Tournament, UCLA beat Arizona State before falling in overtimeto No. 5 Oregon in the semifinals.”We had really great chemistry last year,” Close said of the USA U18 team. “I learned so much from them. They’ve continued to be a resource throughout this year, so it feels like we’re hitting a really cool stride going into this next summer where we hope to lead our U19s in a really good way. They really are excellent coaches, both in their x’s and o’s and the way that they care for players.”Close has led UCLA to at least 20 wins in each of the past three seasons, including 2017-18, where the Bruins finished 27-8 and reached the NCAA Tournament Elite Eight. Close was named the 2018 United States Marine Corps/WBCA NCAA Division I Region 5 Coach of the Year, her second such honor. She also has 18 seasons of experience as an assistant coach at UCLA, UC Santa Barbara and Florida State.The USA Junior National Team Committee, in addition to Rizzotti, includes 2008 Olympic gold medalist Kara Lawson as the athletic representative; and collegiate head coaches Karen Aston (Texas), Tonya Cardoza (Temple) and Wes Moore (North Carolina State) as the NCAA representatives.

first_img This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now 4 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Marketing automation has come a long way — from merely being a tool for marketers to automate repetitive tasks to becoming a fortune ball to understand the high demanding customers of today. The technology advancements in this field have empowered marketers to use customer data to unearth valuable insights and create highly personalized marketing communication, sent at the right time and in the right channel. No wonder it’s slated to become a $5.5 billion industry by 2019.Related: This Is How You Discern the Person in All That Customer Personalization DataHere are three examples of how deep learning in marketing automation is making marketers’ life easier.1. Identifying deeper patterns in data for hyper-personalization.“Personalization” is a widely used term, but it has started to wear down its significance. Don’t get me wrong; I am not suggesting that you should stop personalizing your online shopping experience and marketing messages. What I am proposing is focusing on hyper-personalization.Marketing automation with machine learning (ML) allows you to personalize customer experience based on their history of interactions, like purchasing habits, behavioral traits and digital preferences. But it does not take the intent of the customer into consideration.Deep learning technology, on the other hand, will not just rely on the interaction history of the customer but will consider their intent. For example, a customer comes to your site and buys a dress. During their second visit, the same customer starts checking out footwear. In this scenario, the equation will not rely on transactional and interaction data to personalize the experience, but will consider the intent.Deep learning is much better than other ML and AI techniques in understanding what customers want as it has the potential to find patterns inside of patterns. According to Michio Kaku, AI is only as smart as a “lobotomized, mentally challenged cockroach.” Deep learning techniques identify and analyze patterns so it can predict real-life outcomes. But the technology is still in its infancy, and what it’s capable of is yet to be seen.Related: 3 Competitive Advantages of Deep Learning for Your Company2. Use deep learning to drive customer retention.Every business knows that retaining customers costs less than acquiring them. And, customer retention can increase company profit by manifolds. According to Bain and Co., a 5 percent increase in customer retention can increase a company’s profitability by 75 percent. When it comes to improving customer retention, deep leaning can help. How? By giving customers what they need, when they need it. According to a Trendspotter report, 82 percent of people are likely to shop at a retailer that provides them with personalized offers.Marketing automation powered with AI does the same thing by ensuring the right message gets to the right person at just the right time. But deep learning can take it a notch higher. It takes into account customer taste, personal preferences, spending patterns and even micro preferences combined with external factors, like weather, to send highly customized and more relevant suggestions to their customers. Related: Think Twice About a Company When You Keep Hearing These 4 AI Buzzwords3. Customer behavior is a science: Big data analytics and deep learning.Prescriptive analytics is another technique that uses deep learning from customer data to predict future trends and behavior patterns. Marketing automation platforms have become powerful enough to anticipate predictions — like when a customer will make his next purchase, what’s the LTV of a customer, who are the most valuable customers, what time is a customer is most likely to buy, and what’s the right discount to offer to a customer segment.Deep learning has already been used in the advertising industry to make activities up to 50 percent more efficient. That’s why many marketers are super excited about it. But, deep learning is not as easy as it sounds. Still as a marketer, it’s important to know how it works and how you can use it to your advantage. Marketers who strive to be relevant to their consumer need to pay attention to this technology.

Bismuth is probably best known as the active element in a popular stomach-settling elixir and is also used in cosmetics and medical applications. Rice chemist Lon Wilson and his colleagues are inserting bismuth compounds into single-walled carbon nanotubes to make a more effective contrast agent for computed tomography (CT) scanners. Details of the work by Wilson’s Rice team and collaborators at the University of Houston, St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital and the Texas Heart Institute appear in the Journal of Materials Chemistry B.This is not the first time bismuth has been tested for CT scans, and Wilson’s lab has been experimenting for years with nanotube-based contrast agents for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners. But this is the first time anyone has combined bismuth with nanotubes to image individual cells, he said.”At some point, we realized no one has ever tracked stem cells, or any other cells that we can find, by CT,” Wilson said. “CT is much faster, cheaper and more convenient, and the instrumentation is much more widespread [than MRI]. So we thought if we put bismuth inside the nanotubes and the nanotubes inside stem cells, we might be able to track them in vivo in real time.”Experiments to date confirm their theory. In tests using pig bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells, Wilson and lead author Eladio Rivera, a former postdoctoral researcher at Rice, found that bismuth-filled nanotubes, which they call [email protected] (link sends e-mail)-tubes, produce CT images far brighter than those from common iodine-based contrast agents.”Bismuth has been thought of before as a CT contrast agent, but putting it in nanotube capsules allows us to get them inside cells in high concentrations,” Wilson said. “That lets us take an X-ray image of the cell.”The capsules are made from a chemical process that cuts and purifies the nanotubes. When the tubes and bismuth chloride are mixed in a solution, they combine over time to form [email protected] (link sends e-mail)-tubes. The nanotube capsules are between 20 and 80 nanometers long and about 1.4 nanometers in diameter.”They’re small enough to diffuse into the cell, where they then aggregate into a clump about 300 nanometers in diameter,” said Wilson. “We think the surfactant used to suspend them in biological media is stripped off when they pass through the cell membrane. The nanotubes are lipophilic, so when they find each other in the cell they stick together.”Wilson said his team’s studies showed stem cells readily absorb [email protected] (link sends e-mail)-tubes without affecting their function. “The cells adjust over time to the incorporation of these chunks of carbon and then they go about their business,” he [email protected] (link sends e-mail)-tubes have clear advantages over commonly used iodine-based contrast agents, Wilson said. “Bismuth is a heavy element, down near the bottom of the periodic table, and more effective at diffracting X-rays than almost anything else you could use,” he said. Once the bismuth is encapsulated in the nanotubes, the agent can produce high contrast in very small concentrations. The nanotube surfaces can be modified to improve biocompatibility and their ability to target certain types of cells. They can also be modified for use with MRI, positron emission tomography (PET) and electron paramagnetic resonance imaging systems.The Rice lab is currently working to double the amount of bismuth in each nanotube. “Bismuth ions appear to get into the nanotubes by capillary action, and we think we can improve on the process to at least double the contrast, maybe more,” Wilson said. “Then we would like to combine both bismuth and gadolinium into one nanotube to produce a bimodal contrast agent that can be tracked with both MRI and CT scanners.”For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Videos | Cardiac Imaging | July 30, 2019 VIDEOS | EP LAB | JULY 26, 2019 VIDEO: What Electrophysiologists Need From CT Imaging Prior to AF and VT Ablations Mark Ibrahim, M.D., F read more Videos | Cardiac Imaging | July 30, 2019 VIDEO: The History of CT Calcium Scoring Arthur Agatston, M.D., clinical pro read morelast_img read more

The windows are made of 12 centimeters of ballistic glass, and armour-plated eight-inch doors are the weight of a cabin door on a Boeing 757 jet.Tires are “run flat” and reinforced with kevlar, meaning that if struck, ballistic steel rims support the 10-ton weight of the car to escape at 60 miles per hour.The driver’s cabin has a communications center with GPS, fax, wireless network, and a laptop and satellite phone connected to the Pentagon, the CIA and the vice president office.The defense system has night vision cameras, pump-action shotguns and tear gas cannons.The presidential motorcade consists of up to 45 modified limousines escorting Cadillac One.Right behind The Beast, the USSS Electronic Countermeasures Suburban is used to counter nuclear, biological and chemical attacks.The number of vehicles depends on the risk level of the destination.

A marine biologist confirmed that the jewelry was made of hawksbill shells and valued the pieces at ₡300,000 ($550).According to the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, the hawksbill sea turtle has been critically endangered since 1996.

first_imgA Mixed Bag; Pending Sales Down in April, But Historically High Share May 31, 2017 691 Views The national and regional statistics for pending home sales in April were released Wednesday by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and show a year-over-year decline both nationally and in all four regions. The national index for April is down 3.3 percent to 109.8, and marks the largest year-over-year decline since June 2014 (7.1 percent) and the first year-over-year decline since December of 2016.Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, affords the drop to the “double whammy this spring of inventory that’s down 9.0 percent from a year ago, and price appreciation that’s much faster than any rise [potential buyers have] likely seen in their income.” Coupled with a reduction in the number of new homes being built and too little homes being put up for sale, a slump was almost inevitable. According to Yun, it also doesn’t help pending home sales that investors that purchased single family homes as rental investments during the downturn have continued to hold onto their properties. That could change, however, as inventory is replenished and the demand to rent becomes less.And although indexes have dropped, all regions with the exception of the Northwest still remain above 100, which NAR reports “coincides with a historically high level of home sales activity.” In the West region, the year-over-year index is down to 100.0 (4.2 percent). The Midwest region saw the largest year-over-year decrease at 6.1 percent to and index of 104.4. The South region, on the other hand, only dropped 2.3 percent and has the highest index in the country at 125.9; the Northwest saw the smallest year-over-year reduction at 0.6 percent, but remains the nation’s lowest index at 97.2.Yun estimates, even with the current downturn, that by the end of the year home sales will have increased 3.5 percent to 5.64 million from 2016’s final figure of 5.45 million. Yun also estimates the average existing home price will increase around 5 percent in comparison to 2016’s 5.1 percent.May’s Pending Sales Index will be released at 10 a.m. on June 28, 2017.About the Pending Home Index: A home is considered pending when the contract has been signed but the transaction has yet to be closed. The index is based on approximately 20 percent of the transactions for the sale of existing-homes, and has been shown to mirror the level of closed existing-home sales in the following two months, as the average time from signing to closing is two months.For reference, and index of 100 is equal to the average level of contract activity during 2001, when the data first began to be recorded.center_img April 2017 NAR National Association of Realtors Pending Sales Index 2017-05-31 Staff Writer in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, Newslast_img read more

grab from the video Top News A VIRAL video unearthed a forgotten dancer at the end of last year Bhanumati Rao — silver-haired wrinkled and wearing a pink sari and gold necklace — transformed on stage into a graceful mother calling out to baby Krishna in the classic Bharatanatyam piece titled Krishna ni begane baaro Bhanumati had turned 92 the day before on December 4 The video of her performance at a dance school in Bangalore attracted almost a lakh hits overnight and continues to be popular even a month later “When she was shown the video my mother said ‘Is that Maya’ Five days later she had no recollection that she had danced” says Maya Krishna Rao Delhi-based theatre actor and Bhanumati’s daughter who had uploaded the video on Facebook Bhanumati’s hearing sight and memory have weakened with age but what strikes viewers of the video is the lyricism with which she performs the piece In the 1940s Bhanumati was part of Ram Gopal’s troupe that travelled all over Europe performing and raising money as part of the war effort “I have pictures of her dancing on the streets of Prague My father a serious man who was doing law saw her on stage in London and fell in love” says Maya After her marriage Bhanumati started to live in New York Her Bharatanatyam and fusion performances became a part of the Big Apple’s art buzz and she attracted foreign and Indian audiences in huge numbers — among them Jawaharlal Nehru — to her shows When her husband returned to India after Independence Bhanumati directed her energies towards teaching children — including her own — at her dance school in Delhi The government recognised her efforts with an award of merit She was part of Delhi’s Hindi theatre as well as a well-known comic character of the Malayalee stage “She would make all her costumes on her sewing machine My mother never learnt Hindi in all her years in Delhi but for theatre she would memorise Hindi dialogues written in Malayalam The stage was her home” says Maya “until one day in the 1990s when she stopped dancing Her last performance was a Kathakali piece” Bhanumati closed all doors and went off by herself to Chinmayananda Ashram in Sidhbari (Himachal Pradesh) for 10 years The last few decades have been spent with her garden and home (she lost her husband early) in Delhi “Almost two-three months ago she visited my sister in Bangalore and began to take classes with a Carnatic music teacher My mother is tone deaf she can’t hold a sa but she was enthusiastic about learning music Her music teacher began to show her some mudras and that jogged her memory” says Maya When the teacher suggested that she perform the inaugural piece at their school Bhanumati didn’t need convincing She was ready In the video she turns into a young mother but unusual for an adult she folds her hands before Krishna “I kept telling her ‘Please don’t do that This is a mother calling her errant son She would call him with authority’ My mother said ‘What nonsense I am not going to call him like that’ For her the piece is not about a mother calling a son it’s about a woman calling god” Bhanumati’s movements were based on Bharatanatyam but with glimpses of Kathakali in moments when Krishna plays the flute The performance has a meditative spell as Yashoda offers to tie Krishna’s pitambar bracelets and anklets and feed him makhan “All her life my mother said that dance was a way
