Danish regulator hails success of StopSpillet helpline

first_img Topics: Legal & compliance Danish gambling regulator Spillemyndigheden has hailed the success of the StopSpillet problem gambling helpline after it was revealed that 500 Danes have used the service since its launch.For the first first half of the year to June 30, Spillemyndigheden revealed that 348 calls had been made, though this number has risen significantly since July, with a further 152 calls made for the period to 11 September. “Based on experience with similar guides, we had expected 90 in the quarter, so it is overwhelming that so many have already contacted us,” Spillemyndigheden director Birgitte Sand said.“On the one hand, it would be really good if players or relatives did not have challenges with games. But on the other hand we are of course both happy and proud of the many who have found our way and have shown us the great confidence to seek our help.”Spillemyndigheden added that of the 500 calls, 46% are players and 39% are relatives of gamblers. A further 5% are healthcare professionals, and 10% called for advice on gambling. Men comprise the vast majority of callers, at 85%, with 15% women. However, for relatives calling on behalf of gamblers, women dominate, comprising 69% of callers.StopSpillet did not provide age breakdowns for the updated figures, but for the 348 calls in the first half of 2019, those aged between 18 and 25 made up the most callers (36.9%) followed by 26 to 35 year-olds (23.3%).Linda Lomborg, office manager for StopSpillet, said that going forward, StopSpillet would look to ensure that possible problem gamblers were aware that the service existed.“It’s not a great success in itself to have many calls,” Lomborg said. “For us, the success criterion is that those who need us know that we exist. We feel fortunate that the callers feel well-advised and guided to move forward in the process,” Regions: Europe Nordics Denmark 30th September 2019 | By Daniel O’Boyle Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwittercenter_img 500 Danes have called StopSpillet, the country’s gambling addiction hotline, in a little over 8 months from its launch at the start of 2019 until 11 September.

Reporters Without Borders reacts to a troubling statement made by the U.S. Attorney General

By way of example, you cited the case of The New York Times, which recently released details on a government program subjecting thousands of American citizens to wiretapping in the name of national security. Moreover, national security is the argument that you invoked to justify possible legal proceedings against the media.The position you have taken does not augur well for freedom of the press, already mishandled in several cases concerning information leaks in which journalists-merely because they wished to protect their sources, as their profession demands-were found “in contempt of court.” Your statements immediately followed another worrisome comment by an FBI agent, according to which it had become much easier to subject journalists to wiretapping under the Bush administration.Are we not entitled to fear for press freedom if some journalists-who, by definition, are not bound to secrecy-can be penalized for performing their professional duties, the free exercise of which is guaranteed by the First Amendment of the Constitution ? We cannot condone the continued existence of this gap in the law, as a result of which 33 states grant journalists the privilege to protect the confidentiality of their sources, when that right is not recognized at the federal level. We particularly regret the attitude of defiance that led to your remarks about the media, whose counterbalancing role is essential to any democracy.I sincerely hope that this letter will help to shed new light on this debate.

Man remanded on Clare burglary charges

Michael Sheehan of Cliona Park, Moyross was formally arrested on Friday September 26 at 18.55 at Mayorstone Garda Station by detective garda Ronan O’Reilly and charged with two counts of burglary at houses in Aherina, Kilmore and Doonass in Clonlara on Thursday September 25. Judge Aeneas McCarthy heard that when the accused was charged with the alleged offences he replied that he was, “sorry”. During the brief hearing, Legal Aid Board defence solicitor John Devane said that there were no questions for the detective garda arising out of the arrest charge and caution of Mr Sheehan. Mr Devane said that the 26-year-old was reserving his position on bail and Judge McCarthy said that he would remand the accused in custody to next Tuesday’s sitting of the District Court. The court ordered that Sheehan is to be produced from prison should he be seeking to be restored to bail. Applying for a ruling from the court, Mr Devane said that “national media and others” had reported that his client was appearing in court on road traffic charges, but he said that “it’s abundantly clear that my client is appearing two trespass charges and nothing more. Therefore I am asking that the media rectify this”.Judge McCarthy said that he had “no control over the media and I am only dealing with what is before me – you take it up with the media”, Judge McCarthy added. Sheehan, seen here in the back of a garda car, was taken from Limerick District and lodged in Limerick Prison pending an application for bail next week.center_img Facebook Email Advertisement Twitterlast_img read more

The petitioner in his writ petition under article 226 and 227 of Constitution of India has challenged the vires of Section 69 and 132 of Central Goods and Services Tax Act, 2017 (hereinafter referred as 2017 Act). It is the case of petitioner that petitioner in the present case is engaged in business of trading, manufacturing and export of auto parts, tyres and textile articles for more than 30 years. The petitioner is Managing Director/Proprietor of three entities, all engaged in export of goods and prior to October, 2019 his collective annual turnover was more than Rs. 200 crores. More than 300 workers were working in the units of the petitioner. In October, 2019 petitioner met with an accident and suffered major head and spine injuries and remained on bed for more than 5 months. Thereafter, due to nationwide lockdown units remained closed. Due to above reasons, at present all the units are lying closed but the petitioner is trying to revive his units which would give employment to more than 300 families. The respondent in the present case has alleged the mis-use of Inputs Tax Credit and refund initiated an investigation against 3 firms. The respondent during the course of investigation arrested the partners and petitioner was directed to appear before the Superintendent of Police Amabla. However, the apprehension of the petitioner is that he may be taken into custody in case he appears before the concerned authority. Thus, the petitioner has filed the writ petition challenging the vires of Sections 69 and 132 of Central Goods and Services Tax Act 2017. He has inter alia prayed for interim relief during the pendency of the writ petition as non bailable warrants have been issued against him.  Counsel appearing for petitioner has relied upon the orders passed in CWP-13995-2020 titled as M/s. Stalwart Alloys India Pvt. Ltd. & Ors. Vs. Union of India and Ors. dated 09.09.2020 in support of his case and has raised issued particularly regarding powers of legislature to enact laws under Article 246-A of the Constitution of India. By making reference to Section 4, 5 and provisions of Chapter XII of the Cr. P.C. it was argued by the Counsel for the petitioner that an offence under CGST shall be investigated, inquired into tried and otherwise dealt with according to provisions of Cr. P.C subject to any provisions contrary in the CGST Act. Counsel for the respondent on the other hand opposed the arguments raised by the petitioner and asserted that orders passed in M/s Stalwart Alloy’s (supra) is of no help to the case of the petitioner. It was further asserted that the petitioner is trying to defeat the process initiated by the Investigating Agency, by adopting illegal methods. It was alleged that petitioner is trying to destroy the evidence in order to avoid rigors of Section 132 of the 2017 Act and referred to huge amount of GST evasion made by the petitioner. The Division Bench taking in consideration fact that order declining interim relief by the Telangana High Court in P.V. Ramana Reddy vs. Union of India’s case were upheld by Supreme Court of India and the SLP was dismissed on 27.05.2019 as well as order dated 29.05.2019 passed by  Supreme Court in Union of India vs. Sapna Jain concluded that petitioner is not entitled to interim relief. The Division Bench while passing the order noticed that custodial interrogation is qualitatively more elicitation oriented than questioning a suspect who is well ensconded with a favorable order under Section 438 of the Code and without expressing final opinion held that interfering with the investigation at the this stage in the writ jurisdiction would not be warranted. Accordingly, the prayer was declined and the main case has been fixed for 19.05.2021. *Copy of order passed by the division bench alongwith paperbook attached herewith for reference.

Govts. Add Section 124A IPC As A Matter Of Course To Make The Case Serious,Non-Bailable: Mukul Rohatgi To Supreme Court In Raghu Rama Krishna Raju Case

first_imgTop StoriesGovts. Add Section 124A IPC As A Matter Of Course To Make The Case Serious,Non-Bailable: Mukul Rohatgi To Supreme Court In Raghu Rama Krishna Raju Case Mehal Jain17 May 2021 2:10 AMShare This – xThe Supreme Court on Monday directed YSR Congress Party MP Raghu Rama Krishna Raju to be medically examined by a board of three doctors of the Army Hospital, Secunderabad, Telangana in the presence of a judicial officer to be nominated by the CJ of the Telangana High Court.It may be noted that the sitting MP has alleged custodial torture after he was arrested on Friday (May 14) on the charges of sedition and was taken to the Crime Investigation Department (CID) office in Guntur district. It has been alleged that Raju, who is an outspoken critic of Andhra Pardesh Chief Minister Y. S. Jaganmohan Reddy (his own party head) has been indulging in hate speeches against certain communities and promoting disaffection against the Government, which will cause loss of faith in the Government and also cause disturbances.Advertisement It may be noted that the Andhra Pradesh High Court on Saturday dismissed his bail plea noting that “This Court, as well as the Sessions Court, have got concurrent jurisdiction, this Court is not inclined to entertain this petition directly without moving the same before the trial Judge, where entire material including remand report will be available on his production.”Further, Taking into account a Letter alleging indiscriminate beating of the MP by CID police, Mangalagiri, Guntur, the Andhra Pradesh High Court on Sunday (May 16) constituted a Medical Board to examine him. The Division Bench of Justice C. Praveen Kumar and Justice Lalitha Kanneganti of the High Court constituted a Medical Board headed by the “Superintendent of Government General Hospital, Guntur.” The second Member of the Board would be the Head of Department of General Medicine of Government General Hospital, Guntur, while the third Member would be a Government Doctor, nominated by the Superintendent of Government General Hospital, Guntur.Advertisement The vacation bench of Justices Vineet Saran and B. R. Gavai was hearing two SLPs against these orders of denial of bail and examination by a government hospital. The bench also required the state to file its reply to the pleas in two days’ time, posting the matter for Friday.The following is the exchange as it transpired before the Supreme Court on Monday:’Ingredients of 124A not made out; Governments, as a matter of course, add 124A to make offence serious, non-bailable’- Senior Advocate Mukul RohatgiAdvertisement Advertisement “This is a matter of extraordinary proportions. The basic facts are that the petitioner is a sitting MP of the ruling party itself. He has been critical of the leadership of the party and the state government for some time now. Last year, he had to move the Delhi High Court to get official security because of internal threats from various quarters”, began senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi for the petitioner.Advertisement Advertisement Advertisement “I must say something. I am appearing for the state. I have a respectful submission that if you want to hear it, then keep it on Friday. I will file my short reply and put the case diary and other documents on record”, interjected senior advocate Dushyant Dave, for the state of AP.Opposing this request, Mr. Rohatgi advanced that he is praying for two reliefs today- for ad interim bail and for medical examination by a neutral hospital or a private hospital.”He has been critical of the chief minister for some time now. That is a matter of open record. Last year, he had to get security officially from the central government through the Delhi High Court because of threats by various elements in the party itself. That is the background. What happens is this – it appears that the police authorities ordered some kind of an enquiry. Obviously, I take it that it is an enquiry in which my client is not associated. That enquiry resulted in a report to the CID branch of the police that this petitioner has made these kinds of critical remarks about the government, critical of the chief minister, trying to say that the chief minister is partial to 1 community and not to another community”, continued Mr. Rohatgi. He added that, however, there is no allegation that his client ever “incited a rebellion or a call to arms or violence”. “That is the requirement of 124A (sedition). That has been settled for 50 years, for 100 years. The governments, as a matter of course, are adding 124A to make out a serious offence. All the other offences are bailable. They add 124A so that the man does not get bail and the court feels it is a very, very serious offence”, advanced Mr. Rohatgi. He continued to submit that the additional DG ordered the enquiry and received a report in a couple of days and based on that report, he himself ordered the FIR- “The FIR is not on the instance of some other complainant that I have given this speech or that speech! The suo motu case is based on the enquiry by DG (CID), he himself is the complainant, he is the person who directed the enquiry!””The cat is now out of the bag because my client is on TV making critical comments against the government about the COVID situation. 2 TV channels and their reporters have also been booked. On 14th of May, which was incidentally the birthday of the petitioner, he was at his house in Hyderabad. He was picked up by a posse of 40 policemen, taken into a car and taken to Guntur which is 300 km away. They chose to register the FIR at Guntur!” Mr. Rohatgi alleged custodial torture against the petiitoner- “They can register it anywhere they want in the state! It is my case that at night, he was in police custody, he was beaten up and tortured and then produced before the magistrate. The magistrate has recorded in his order that when this man was produced, the magistrate found some injuries on his feet. The magistrate also records that in December, 2020, this man had a cardiac by-pass, an open heart surgery. This is an order under 54 CrPC” “The magistrate directs that he should be medically examined in a government hospital and also in a private hospital. Because it is our case that the government hospital will be biased. My client has still not been examined by a private hospital”, continued the senior counsel.He narrated that when the matter was moved in the High Court for bail, the Andhra Pradesh High Court passed an order on Saturday that the petitioner should move the lower court and dismissed me bail plea, “not realising that there is concurrent jurisdiction under section 439, CrPC”.”This is an extraordinary case. These are times of Covid. According to me, this order is completely in the teeth of section 439″, argued Mr. Rohatgi.He advanced that the second order which is challenged in the second SLP is an order in which the High Court says that the petitioner should be examined by a government hospital.”…By a board of three doctors”, pointed out Senior Advocate V. Giri, also for the state.Mr. Rohatgi advanced, “This Board also says no injuries. A magistrate records that there are injuries””What is important is that the medical board is headed by a gynaecologist whose husband is the head of the legal cell of the ruling party!”, he advanced.”But for better or for worse, after the magistrate’s order, two orders were passed yesterday by the High Court. In yesterday’s order, the High Court has said that the order of the magistrate by which he directed examination even by a private hospital can remain because it is a statutory order under section 54 of the Code. The High Court itself has said that the order must be complied with. I am requesting that today he should be examined by a private or a neutral hospital, as the judge has recorded some Ramesh hospital or there are Army hospitals…”, continued Mr. Rohatgi.”The Supreme Court can direct either the Ramesh hospital or the other Army hospitals. He is also entitled to be treated in an army hospital as he is a sitting MP. But that is not relevant. The High Court itself has said that he should be examined. As of now he has not been examined”Next, Mr. Rohatgi took the bench through the FIR to indicate that the case is “completely bogus” and that a case for bail is made out- “Please look at the FIR, and I will submit that the High Court was wrong in sending me back and that Your Lordships should give me bail. The FIR mentions ‘Occurrence prior to 14.5.2021’- ‘Information received at Police Station Guntur on 14.5.2021′. It was received by himself (the officer who ordered the FIR)! Everything is completely bogus. The accused are the MP and two media houses and their reporters”At this, Mr. Dave intervened to say, “Am I not entitled to one or two days’ time? I don’t have these papers or anything. I am requesting a little accommodation. I am entitled to it as the state. I am not even asking for a week’s time. Please put it on Friday”When the bench inquired from Mr. Rohatgi if a copy of the petition has been supplied to the state, replying in the negative, Mr. Rohatgi asserted that there is no such rule. “There was no time for a caveat. The order was passed yesterday”, pointed out Mr. Giri.”Even without asking my government, I have no problems if Mr Rohatgi’s client is to be re-examined. There is an AIIMS at Mangalagiri in Andhra. Ramesh Hospital is a problem because last year, there was a fire there in which 20 people died. We are prosecuting that hospital for that”, added Mr. Dave.When the bench asked if there are any army hospitals where the exercise could be undertaken, Mr. Dave said it would not be appropriate to use the Army hospitals. “Army Hospital is neither central government nor state government”, remarked the bench.”AIIMS is also not under the state government. It is under the central government”, said Mr. Dave. The bench observed that it might not be “a neutral thing”.”Please keep the matter on Friday. I make a statement that we will take him to the AIIMS and have him examined and if Your Lordships feel that he should be in the presence of a senior judicial officer, it would be an examination in the presence of the senior judicial officer of the district concerned. I have no problem. We are not hiding anything. After all, he is also a citizen. I would be the last person to say that is right should not be respected. But there is a serious case here for the state to tell Your Lordships”, pressed Mr. Dave.The bench was told that AIIMS, Mangalagiri is a newly-established hospital and is not properly staffed. “Even the high court judges who went for its inauguration said that it is being administered by the technical staff”, the bench was told.When the bench inquired if there is any other army hospital in the vicinity, senior advocate Adinarayana Rao, also for the petitioner, replied, “There is the Naval Hospital in Visakhapatnam. That is more than 300 km away. The Cyclone would also be affecting Visakhapatnam. We would be travelling to Visakhapatnam amid the cyclone threat.The bench adjourned the matter by an hour, seeking to hear either the AG or the SG on the issue. The bench also required the SLPs to be shared with the state.When the bench reconvened at 12 PM, SG Tushar Mehta was present.Mr. Dave and Mr. Giri told the bench that there is a Manipal Hospital which is also very near, about 10 km away, and that it is a private hospital and one of the best in the country.Mr. Rohatgi persisted that it may be best that AIIMS, New Delhi examined the petitioner- “In regard to private hospital, somebody may have something or the other. The Magistrate said Ramesh Hospital, but the state is opposing it. So far as AIIMS in Mangalagiri in Andhra Pradesh is concerned, we have our own apprehensions because the governing body of AIIMS in Andhra Pradesh has on its board two prominent sitting MPs who were adverse to the petitioner””I don’t want to cast aspersions here or there, but only pointing to the extraordinary nature of this case. I applied for cancellation of the bail of the Chief Minister. He is an accused in 35 cases by the CBI and the ED. It is listed on 17 May. I am telling you this matter has huge overtones. I wanted to read the FIR to tell Your Lordships that this is a bogus case. Therefore, it is my respectful submission that he should be examined other than in Andhra”, he prayed.”He is an MP. He has an office here in Delhi. Every MP has a quarter in Delhi. I will bear the cost of being transported. Let him stay under house arrest in Delhi for two days. Your Lordships may then hear the bail tomorrow or the day after”, he pressedWhen the bench inquired from the SG if he had any objections to AIIMS, New Delhi, the SG replied, “I can never have any objections to AIIMS, Delhi. If Mr. Rohatgi is fine with AIIMS, I have no difficulty”When it was urged that why an army hospital must be embroiled “in this political thing”, the bench asserted that “there is nothing political” and that “we are just talking about medical examination”.Mr. Giri pointed out that it was Mr Rohatgi’s submission that the petitioner is entitled to be treated at an Army hospital as he is an MP.Mr. Giri added that the Court only direct a medical examination by an army hospital and not admission- “He can only be examined. Please don’t send him to the hospital for admission. It cannot be prayed that he be kept there till Friday. No citizen can be allowed that”cxTagsSupreme Court MP Raghu Rama Krishna Raju 124A Sr. Adv.

Professors highlight details of travel ban

first_imgProfessors of political science Pat Pierce and Marc Belanger hosted an open forum Tuesday to discuss President Trump’s executive order on immigration that banned the entry into the U.S. of nationals from Iraq, Iran, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Yemen and Libya for 90 days. The forum’s goal was not to discuss the executive order in a manner of pros or cons, but rather to provide information on it as a whole, Pierce said.“What different sides in the debate have done is … emphasize part of the picture, but it’s important to put the whole thing together,” Pierce said.Pierce said the court tends to allow the president a little more freedom to decide what is in the nation’s best interest in cases regarding immigration and terrorism. “In terms of the ways that courts have handled these kinds of issues, they have often given presidents a great deal of discretion,” Pierce said. “Probably even greater because the president can claim to have information that they cannot make public that they can make the basis of that decision.”According to Pierce, the First Amendment provides another concern in the order, as the order is targeted at predominately Muslim countries.“This isn’t supposed to violate the First Amendment,” Pierce said. “We are not supposed to be making policies that establish a particular religion as the religion of the United States.”Pierce said this establishment of religion is “linked to the notion that this has been directed at Muslims,” which draws concern in regards to the secularity of the nation.“The Trump administration has attempted to argue that it is not at this point,” Pierce said.According to Pierce, the most persuasive argument in the court decision will depend on the particular judge.“Depending upon which judges are listening to this case, they may or may not take that seriously,” Pierce said. “Because there are at least a couple of things that he said during the course of the campaign that he was going to stop Muslims from entering the country.”Belanger said the executive order does not specify that there should be an exception made in the travel ban for Christians, but that many people believe it suggests that.“There’s another part in the executive order that seems to create a preference for Christian minorities from countries where they are a minority,” Belanger said. “It doesn’t talk about Christians, but it talks about religious minorities facing persecutions in countries where they are a minority.”Since the Trump issued the executive, many Americans have pointed to the six-month immigration ban under the Obama Administration. Belanger said the background to that ban is important to understand when comparing it to Trump’s order.“In 2011, it turned out that a couple of refugees’ fingerprints were found on some evidence of explosive devices that exploded in Iraq,” Belanger said. “Therefore, they had lied about their record.” In response to this, the process for immigration from Iraq froze for six months, and when it resumed it was slower than it had been previously, he said. This is different from the current executive order, according to Belanger. “What didn’t happen under President Obama’s was it did not suddenly change the status of green-card holders,” Belanger said. “That’s what created a lot of the problems in the airport. … People were coming back form these countries whose visa status when they left was fine, and suddenly their visa status was up in the air.”Belanger said there are often misunderstandings in terms of the process to attain refugee status, which needed to be clarified to understand the situation.“It’s worth just talking a little bit about the process for how refugees are screened right now, because it may just seem like you tell someone you’re a refugee and you get into the United States,” Belanger said.According to Belanger, the term refugee has a legal meaning, and people must go through not only the process set forth by the United Nations, but also of the country they wish to inhabit. This process includes proving that one wishes to leave the country they inhabit due to “well-founded fears of persecution” based on factors such as race, religious affiliation or sexual orientation, Belanger said.“‘Refugee’ is a term that has a meaning in international law,” Belanger said “It gives you a status in international law but it comes from being able to demonstrate a number of things.”Belanger said the debates surrounding the executive order will continue even if the president issues a new executive order in the near future.“They [the Trump administration] have continued to say that they’re going to continue to argue in court,” Belanger said. “They think the original executive order should be held up by the courts but … if they introduce a new one, it may make the whole thing moot.”Tags: Donald Trump, executive order, Immigration, president trumplast_img read more

True or false: Your credit union website should use testimonials

first_imgYou see testimonials all over the internet. Maybe one testimonial has an eagerly smiling picture next to it. Maybe another declares a product to be the greatest thing since sliced bread. Many of the newest and sleekest credit union website designs employ testimonials (example: HFSFCU.org has testimonials all over the place). And there’s a reason for it: studies show testimonials persuade people to act.Why you should use testimonialsWhen it comes to making decisions, “Social Proof” is one of the most motivating factors out there. If humans know that other humans are doing something, they will also want to do that thing. We are naturally drawn to what others like and do, and model our behavior after them. (This is why television sitcoms use canned laugh tracks to encourage you to chuckle.)In 1968, several psychologists conducted an experiment where they had a single man stand at the corner of a busy street and stare up at the sky. Only a couple people stopped to see what he might be looking at. But when they had five people stare at the sky, the number of others who stopped to look increased exponentially. Soon, a whole crowd was assembled. The psychologists found that people simply assumed if several people were looking, there must be something interesting to look at. continue reading » 18SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Family reminds couple of love on 50th wedding anniversary through song

first_imgIn the Greenberg family, they say music has been a strong part of their lives. That’s why when Stacey and Mickey couldn’t celebrate, their daughter, Bess, says she and her brothers decided to make a music video with the grandchildren. “They were very surprised and very moved by it all,” said Bess when talking about the moment she video taped her parents watching the video. “Even just thinking about it now, despite the circumstances, it was a really special moment.” The video consisted of the five children singing with pictures and videos throughout the couple’s marriage. Bess says her mother was sad the morning of the anniversary, saying she just wanted to be with her family. She says while it was tough to not be able to celebrate, she says it’s so important to make family feel extra loved during this pandemic. “When we have the ability to let people know that we care, it can change a person’s day. It can change how we feel,” said Bess. VESTAL (WBNG) — When Stacey and Mickey Greenberg couldn’t celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary with their loved ones, their family went to the extra mile to recognize the special day.

Medan man sentenced to 18 months in prison for throwing Quran inside mosque

A woman passed by him and asked Udin to sit properly while reading the Quran. Read also: Indonesia condemns series of ‘provocative’ actions against Muslims in foreign countriesUdin reportedly asked the woman to pay him some money in exchange for complying with her request, to which the woman agreed. However, shortly after he sat up straight, Udin closed the Quran and threw the book before him and left the mosque afterward.The punishment handed down by the court on Monday was lighter than the prosecutor’s demand of two years’ imprisonment.Both the defendant and the prosecutor accepted the verdict. Earlier last month, the district court had also sentenced a Medan man identified as Doni Irawan Malay to three years in prison for having desecrated the Quran at a mosque earlier this year. The court also found him guilty of blasphemy.

Morrison leaves West Ham

first_img “West Ham United can confirm that the club have reached agreement with Ravel Morrison to terminate his contract with immediate effect,” a statement on the club’s website, www.whufc.com, read. Morrison signed a three-and-a-half-year deal with West Ham in February 2012 and made his debut for the club six weeks later in a Championship clash against Leeds. He spent the 2012-13 season on loan at Birmingham before breaking into Allardyce’s first team in the 2013-14 season. Morrison made his Premier League debut in a goalless draw at Newcastle in August 2013 and scored his first goal for the club in a Capital One Cup victory over Cheltenham three days later. His first Premier League goal followed in September 2013 in a narrow defeat against Everton and the following month he played a starring role in West Ham’s 3-0 league victory at Tottenham, capping off a fine display with an exquisite solo goal. But Morrison has not figured in Allardyce’s plans of late and his only two appearances for West Ham this season came in August and he was on the losing side on both occasions. The England Under-21 midfielder was part of the Hammers side knocked out of the Capital One Cup by Sheffield United at Upton Park on January 26, and four days later he featured in the 3-1 Premier League defeat at home to Southampton. He joined Cardiff in September on a three-month loan but his spell with the Bluebirds was largely unsuccessful and he returned to east London after playing seven times for the Sky Bet Championship side. Ravel Morrison has left West Ham with immediate effect after the Barclays Premier League club announced the termination of his contract on Sunday. Press Association Morrison’s West Ham contract had been due to expire in the summer and he was linked with a move to Serie A side Lazio during the winter transfer window. In January, Morrison was cleared of all charges of assaulting his former girlfriend and her mother. Morrison was accused of hitting his ex Reah Mansoor and her mother, Parveen Mansoor, after a night out at a nightclub in his home city of Manchester last July 24. He was due to go on trial at Manchester Crown Court in January but the charges were dropped by the prosecution and Morrison was found not guilty. Allardyce refused to take questions on Morrison following Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Manchester United at Upton Park. The 22-year-old midfielder joined the Hammers in January 2012 after a two-year stint at Manchester United, and made 24 appearances in three years for Sam Allardyce’s side. However, a series of disciplinary problems hampered his progress at Upton Park and he was loaned to Birmingham, Queens Park Rangers and Cardiff City. last_img read more

first_imgZIMBABWE will begin the search for a new bowling coach after reluctantly accepting Makhaya Ntini’s resignation.Ntini has stepped down from his role as Zimbabwe bowling coach after two years with the African nation, including a short spell as interim head coach.Ntini filled in following Dav Whatmore’s departure in May 2016, with Heath Streak taking on the permanent head coach role five months later.The former South Africa seamer originally signed a two-year deal with Zimbabwe, but the 40-year-old has opted not to renew terms.“It is with regret that Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) announces that Makhaya Ntini, the national team bowling coach, has tendered his resignation from ZC with immediate effect,” read a statement from the governing body.“Makhaya has brought a wealth of experience and practical knowledge to ZC, and ZC and its players and coaching staff were fortunate to have had an opportunity to work closely with him during this period, and to learn from his many years of playing for Cricket South Africa at the highest level.“While reluctantly accepting his resignation, ZC fully appreciates and respects the reasons behind Makhaya’s decision, and wishes him all the very best for the future.”Ntini’s announcement came on the same day that Streak named his one-day international squad for their tri-series with Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.Brendan Taylor returns along with Kyle Jarvis after their international exile ended in the recent Test series with West Indies, while there are also places for Brandon Mavuta and Ryan Murray.Series hosts Bangladesh have made five changes to their squad for the first two matches of the, with Mustafizur Rahman included, while Taskin Ahmed and Soumya Sarkar have been dropped.Zimbabwe: Graeme Cremer (captain), Hamilton Masakadza, Solomon Mire, Craig Ervine, Brendan Taylor, Sikandar Raza, Peter Moor, Malcolm Waller, Ryan Murray, Tendai Chisoro, Brandon Mavuta, Blessing Muzarabani, Christopher Mpofu, Tendai Chatara, Kyle JarvisBangladesh: Mashrafe Mortaza (captain), Shakib Al Hasan, Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Anamul Haque, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah, Nasir Hossain, Sabbir Rahman, Mohammad Mithun, Mustafizur Rahman, Rubel Hossain, Abul Hasan, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Mohammad Saifuddin, Sunzamul Islam.

World Athletics to expel Russia’s federation  if fine unpaid by August 15

first_imgBy Gabrielle Tétrault-Farber, Brian HomewoodMOSCOW/BERN (Reuters) – The global governing body for athletics will expel Russia’s federation, suspended since 2015 for having broken anti-doping rules, if it fails to pay a hefty fine before Aug. 15, it said on Thursday.Rune Andersen, chair of the taskforce overseeing Russia’s reinstatement efforts, said it had received a guarantee from Russian Sports Minister Oleg Matytsin that a payment of $6.31 million (4.85 million pounds), which includes a fine for breaching anti-doping rules, would be made before mid-August. The federation had missed the initial deadline of July 1.The expulsion, which would have to be approved by the World Athletics Congress, would lead to Russian athletes being sidelined from international competitions, including those who had previously been authorised to compete as neutrals.World Athletics said the decision would come into effect immediately and automatically if the payment was not made by the new deadline. It said no Russian athletes could be clear to compete internationally as neutrals until that condition was met.It added the federation needs to submit a new plan for reform and show satisfactory progress in achieving its objectives.“At least we are now in a position to continue the reinstatement process having had a clear indication that the have accepted the seriousness and severity of the situation,” World Athletics President Sebastian Coe told an online news conference.“The proof of the pudding will be in the reinstatement plan we have from them.”Russia’s athletics federation was suspended in 2015 after a report commissioned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) found evidence of mass doping among track and field athletes.Despite working towards reinstatement, the federation’s senior officials and coaches have continued to find themselves embroiled in doping scandals.This week the federation had asked World Athletics to delay its decision on its status, saying it did not have enough funds to cover the fine and other fees and that it was still searching for external funding.The federation’s handling of the doping crisis and its fallout has angered some of the country’s top athletes, including three-times world high jump champion Maria Lasitskene, who has been among the federation’s most vocal critics.Some athletes have said they could consider representing other countries if they are indefinitely barred from competing on the global stage.last_img read more

Dajuan Coleman plays career-high 35 minutes, turns in steady performance

first_imgMidway through the second half, Dajuan Coleman backed down Abdul-Malik Abu, pushed him through the paint and spun around to hit a jumper while getting fouled. He went to line, knocked that down, too, and extended Syracuse’s lead to 13.Flashes of what Coleman could do resurfaced as he further cemented Syracuse’s lead. Those flashes didn’t last for more than a few moments at a time, but he did just enough to help secure the Orange’s lead.Some rebounds bounced away and he eventually fouled out, but his performance was already enough by then. Coleman racked up seven points and seven rebounds, giving Syracuse a boost in the frontcourt in a 75-66 win. His play wasn’t dazzling, but without Tyler Roberson on the court for much of the game, Coleman got the job done.“He’s battling,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said. “He’s doing the best he can out there.”Syracuse (19-10, 9-7 Atlantic Coast) fended off several North Carolina State (14-15, 4-12) runs to hold onto its lead, which it had for the final 34 minutes of the game, allowing Coleman to stay in the game. After missing the past two seasons because of injury and slowly progressing for much of the nonconference season, Coleman turned in a steady performance on Saturday in the Carrier Dome. Except this time, he stayed on the court for a career-high 35 minutes.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Wolfpack lead the conference in offensive rebounds with an average of 14.3 per game and Coleman helped limit that to nine even as the Orange lost the rebounding margin by just two, 38-36. In its last two games, SU got outrebounded by 11 and 20 against Louisville and Pittsburgh, respectively. Coleman only played in about half of each of those games as Syracuse trailed most of the time.“Every time I go in I just want to make my presence felt,” Coleman said. “If that’s pushing the big men around making them uncomfortable, that’s why I try to do.”Defensively, Coleman’s presence upgraded Syracuse against N.C. State’s big men, Abu and BeeJay Anya. Offensively, he allowed Tyler Lydon to stretch to the outside and attempt seven 3s.On several occasions, the ball bounced through Coleman’s hands. He could have had more rebounds, Boeheim said, he just couldn’t jump high enough. He could have scored another layup, but he fumbled a Frank Howard pass out of bounds. Still, on a day highlighted by Michael Gbinije’s 34 points in his last regular season home game, Coleman’s play showed tangible improvement from just a few months ago.“He’s starting to get in a rhythm,” Howard said, “… and just be more comfortable.”At the beginning of the season, Boeheim stressed that it would take time for Coleman to round into shape. In a Dec. 3 loss to Wisconsin, Coleman only played five minutes and questioned if Boeheim trusted him after the game.On Saturday, Coleman showed it was all in the past.“Getting down there and rebounding the ball, giving a lot of effort and making key stops,” Coleman said. “That was the game plan.”After the game, Coleman stood at his locker straining to keep his right eye open. Just underneath it was a stitched up gash he suffered in the closing minutes of the game when an N.C. State player elbowed him.Just as his 35 minutes showed he has Boeheim’s trust, his gash showed it wasn’t easy. But against two of the stronger big men in the conference, Coleman did what he had to.“He’s a big guy,” Boeheim said, “and we needed another big guy out there.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on February 27, 2016 at 6:34 pm Contact Paul: [email protected] | @pschwedslast_img read more

Men’s volleyball travels east for cross-conference tourney

first_imgThe USC men’s volleyball team is looking to snap its four-game losing streak this weekend at the Pac-12/Big Ten Challenge hosted by Penn State. The Trojans will face Ohio State Friday and No. 10 Penn State Sunday. With a roster consisting of just one senior and 15 underclassmen, an adjustment in offensive intensity from the high school level to college is expected in early season play. However, the Trojans’ offense depends on the defense providing for junior setter Chris Hall, meaning ball movement will have to be cleaner for hitters to finish the point. This isn’t the Trojans’ first trip to the Pac-12/Big Ten Challenge. Last year, USC took down both the Nittany Lions and the Buckeyes in hard-fought 3-2 matches. However, with the loss of key senior offensive players, this weekend carries no guarantee of similar success. The tournament host will provide a tough but necessary matchup to prepare the Trojans for Pac-12 conference play, which begins next week. If USC is hoping for a successful weekend, head coach Jeff Nygaard’s squad has to look back at its solo win strategy against Princeton to keep pace with the high-level competition the Trojans are expected to face.  Junior setter Chris Hall recorded season highs in assists, digs and total blocks against Princeton. USC will take on Ohio State and Penn State next. (Daily Trojan file photo) Looking at Penn State, its back row prowess is what earns the high ranking. The Nittany Lions’ aces have dismantled serve receptions, with their season total nearly triple that of their opponents’. Sophomore libero Will Bantle racked up 19 digs in a five-set comeback against No. 7 Lewis, a testament to the toughness this team has against high-level offenses. The Buckeyes are currently undefeated this season, consistently holding opponents under 20 points and only losing one set out of the season’s 16.  Scouting Ohio State, its blocking efficiency explains much of the past runaway wins. Freshman middle blocker Samuel Clark was just named the Midwestern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association Defensive Player of the Week after a decimating eight-block performance against Lincoln Memorial. Sophomore middle blocker Ethan Talley is three short of Clark with 16 total blocks in the season. For comparison, USC has a team total of 26 blocks.  USC has proven powerful at the net, averaging 10.5 kills per set. Junior middle blocker Kyle Gear leads the front row, logging double-digit kills in three games this season, while sophomore outside hitter Brandon Browning follows with a .226 offensive production rate. USC faces off against Ohio State at 10:30 a.m. Friday and Penn State at 10 a.m. Sunday. While USC comes in with a 1-4 record, the Trojans have had a tougher pre-conference lineup that included a promising 3-2 win over No. 13 Princeton and a tight four-set loss to No. 4 Long Beach State last Friday.last_img read more

5 takeaways from Bellator London

first_imgOn a busy Saturday that included all manner of combat sports spectacles, the best collection of bouts from top to bottom took place at SSE Arena in London, where Bellator MMA delivered an expansive 19-fight card that featured all manner of matchups and competitors at every stage in their careers.In addition to the usual local fare that generally makes up the promotion’s preliminary card, Saturday’s event featured some of the top European upstarts on the Bellator MMA roster returning to action, including Mike Shipman, Fabian Edwards and James Gallagher. Accompanying the future contenders were veteran kickboxer Melvin Manhoef and Geordie Shore star Aaron Chambers, who was looking to rebound from the first loss of his career, while the main event featured middleweight champ Gegard Mousasi putting his title on the line against undefeated Brazilian jiu jitsu specialist Rafael Lovato Jr. Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearIt was a long, eventful night inside the iconic arena at Wembley Park.Here are five key takeaways from the evening’s festivities.Rafael Lovato Jr. is your new Bellator MMA middleweight championThe best overall card of the weekend also featured the best overall fight, as Lovato Jr. pulled off the massive upset, wrestling away the middleweight title from Mousasi by way of majority decision, rallying to win the final round and gain the advantage on the scorecards.After starting quickly, the American slowed while Mousasi found his footing and started to roll, but when it mattered most, Lovato Jr. was able to dig into his energy reserves and outwork the champion over the last five minutes to swing the fight in his favor.There is a tendency in situations like this to question whether Mousasi was ill prepared, underestimated his opponent, or wasn’t all that good to begin with, but to do so here would be a disservice to both the dethrone former champion and the man who beat him. Mousasi was game and gave his all on Saturday and it simply wasn’t enough to best Lovato Jr., who is clearly an outstanding talent.The 36-year-old is 10-0 now as a professional and you now have to wonder where his record would stand if he transitioned to the sport sooner. He only really committed fully to MMA in 2016, when he fought twice under the LFA banner, and yet he just toppled a veteran with more than 50 fights against many of the top middleweights of the last decade.What makes Lovato Jr. more dangerous than most jiu jitsu players in MMA is that he’s worked diligently to strengthen the rest of his arsenal and it all works in concert with his grappling acumen. His wrestling is sharp, his striking continues to improve and he’s capable of just imposing his will and bullying opponents if necessary.He is the complete package and one of the most intriguing fighters in the sport right now. He’s also the new Bellator MMA middleweight champion.James Gallagher gets it done, but now what?He had to work for it, but Gallagher picked up a unanimous decision win over Jeremiah Labiano on Saturday night, giving him back-to-back victories and pushing his overall record to 9-1.The Straight Blast Gym representative collected 29-28 scores from all three judges, showing a little more moxie and resolve than has been required of him in the past in order to get by Labiano. It was a well-earned, professional victory and one that keeps the 22-year-old squarely in the spotlight going forward, but what comes next?Gallagher has benefitted from being pushed as a potential star for Bellator MMA, especially in Europe, and mostly faced off with opposition he should beat, the one exception being Ricky Bandejas, who kicked him in the face and handed the fighting pride of Strabane, Northern Ireland his one and only professional loss. Having vanquished another two “softer” challengers, it’s once again time for Scott Coker & Co. to figure out if they would like to see Gallegher tested or if they’d prefer to keep bringing him along as an attraction who usually gets the better of things on European shows.Patrick Mix called him out following his win over Bandejas last weekend and it would be an incredible fight between two of the company’s top young talents, but it’s also a dangerous fight for both men and there is no predicting how fans would respond to Gallagher if he caught a second loss.He clearly has “The It Factor” and a loyal following, but it’s hard to say how good Gallagher really is at the moment and it will be interesting to see if Bellator MMA truly wants to find out or not.Fabian Edwards keeps rollingThe 28-year-old from Birmingham maintained his unbeaten record on Saturday night, registering his third straight victory since signing with Bellator MMA and his eighth consecutive win overall with a clean sweep of the scorecards against Jonathan Bosuku.While he’s a long way away from title contention, Edwards is at the point where the organization needs to either get him in there with an established name and get a better read on where he fits in the division or put a ton of energy behind hyping him up and building him into another unbeaten rising star, much like they tried to do with Gallagher and have successfully done with guys like AJ McKee in the past.After blowing the doors off the competition in BAMMA, Edwards has gone the distance in two of his three appearances in the Bellator cage, which raises questions about his true upside. Of course, the same could have been said about his brother, UFC welterweight contender Leon Edwards, as he made slow and steady progress up the divisional ladder and now he’s a proven himself to be a legitimate Top 10 talent poised to face Rafael dos Anjos in the main event of next month’s return to San Antonio.My suggestion? Pair him off with Charlie Ward on the next fight card in England or Ireland — both are 3-0 under the Bellator MMA banner, so let them duke it out to determine the top rising European middleweight on the roster.Costello van Steenis looks like a contenderIn a battle of dangerous European middleweights, van Steenis established himself as a contender by registering a second-round technical knockout win over Mike Shipman on Saturday. “Sea Bass” entered the fight on a 12-fight winning streak and van Steenis brought it to a screeching halt, extending his current run of success to six.While Shipman was the more talked about member of the tandem, including being the focus of this card’s Under the Radar profile, it was the 26-year-old van Steenis who proved to be the better man and vaulted himself into the thick of the title hunt in the process. Before beating Shipman on Saturday, the Dutchman earned a split decision win over durable divisional fixture Chris Honeycutt, and with the shakeup at the top of the weight class, there is an opportunity for him to land another high profile pairing in the second half of the year.Bellator clearly has a real talent on its hands with “The Spaniard” and it would make a lot of sense to get him into a main event assignment with a serious promotional push next time out in order to introduce him to a wider audience.Remember Oliver Enkamp?Chances are you don’t because you don’t have the same kind of weird brain thing I do where I remember baby-faced Swedish fighters who have a cup of coffee in the UFC and then disappear for 18 months.Either way, the now 27-year-old Enkamp returned for the first time since those twin losses in the Octagon to register a first-round submission win over Walter Gahadza in the final bout of the night. It may not sound like a lot, but this was a good win against a veteran coming off back-to-back stoppage victories and establishes Enkamp as someone to keep an eye on in the welterweight division. “The Future” was undefeated before arriving in the UFC, then promptly dropped back-to-back fights to Nordine Taleb and Danny Roberts, the first coming on short notice while he had a bad wheel. He was released after getting snuffed out by Roberts and has been floating in the ether ever since, finally resurfacing this weekend in London and getting an impressive stoppage win over Gahadza.While this is his first victory in the promotion — and his first win in a little over 26 months — the Swedish welterweight is just now hitting his athletic prime, showed a bunch of promise before his UFC stint and fights in a division with tons of established, entertaining options for Bellator matchmaker Rich Chou to pair him off with in the months ahead.This was a quality victory over a dangerous opponent and one that should put Enkamp on everyone’s radar going forward, not just weirdoes like me who have a strange ability to retain fighter information and get excited about Bellator dark matches.last_img read more

Darwin Salver win gives Turner a special double

first_img19 Mar 2015 Darwin Salver win gives Turner a special double Teenage international Ashton Turner pulled off a unique double when he scored an impressive four-shot win in the Darwin Salver at Rye.Turner, from Kenwick Park in Lincolnshire, is the only player to have two wins in the South of England Youths’ Championship, following his previous success in 2013.“I’m honoured by that,” said Turner, who celebrates his 19th birthday next Wednesday. “Hopefully it will be three next year!“This win means a great deal to me. It’s a really nice course and it gets the year off to a good start.”Turner finished four shots clear of fellow international Ben Amor of Wiltshire, while Oliver Farrell of Worcestershire was third. The round of the tournament came from Kent’s Freddie Price who carded 63 in the second round, equalling Tom Lewis’ course record, set in Open Championship qualifying in 2011. He shared fourth place.Turner had scores of 66 68 71 and 66 – and took great pride in his final round. “I played well in the first three rounds but in the last round I really struggled off the tee, but I saved myself with my short game.“The highlight was probably on the 15th, where I blocked my drive miles right onto the 18th green. I dropped on the fringe, but the fringes at Rye are really good and I didn’t want to damage it, so I thinned the ball and got it to about 8ft and holed for a birdie!”Turner’s short game was so good that he had just one bogey in the round and three birdies. “I was really pleased with the way I scrambled and everything came together on the greens and I holed all the putts,” he said.At the halfway stage of the event Turner was two shots off the pace, set by Kent’s Mark Collins, the winner of last year’s English County Champion of Champions Tournament. Turner took the lead after the third round, edging a stroke ahead of another international, Harry Hall of Cornwall, before securing the title with his final round 66. Meanwhile Ben Amor shot up the leaderboard with a last round 65 to snatch second place.Turner and Amor, a past winner of the English U18 boys’ Carris Trophy, are both members of the England Golf men’s A squad.Turner has another reason to find the Darwin Salver memorable. Last year he scored a hole-in-one on the 9th – which was his 18th hole – on his 18th birthday.Leading final scoresPar 68 CSS 71 71 72 72271 Ashton Turner (Kenwick Park) 66 68 71 66275 Ben Amor (Marlborough) 68 75 67 65277 Oliver Farrell (Evesham) 69 69 74 65279 David Ramsay (Mold) 68 68 72 71; Freddie Price (Royal Blackheath) 71 63 74 71Click here  for more information about the Darwin Salverlast_img read more

Clairton Bears is no longer ‘Bout Dat’

first_imgLENNY WILLIAMS—Sto-Rox quarterback sprints 22 yards to the end zone for the winning touchdown in the Vikings 24-19 win over Clairton in the WPIAL Class A playoffs, Williams rushed for two touchdowns and returned an interception 42 yards for a touchdown.“Bout Dat” was the Clairton Bears rallying cry for the last few years. Clairton’s 66 game winning streak was the longest in WPIAL and state history with five consecutive WPIAL and four straight state championships. But all dat changed in 2013.The WPIAL championship is high school football’s version of Mount Everest and the Bears climbed to the top of the mountain over Sto Rox’s for the last two years.On a chilly Friday night at Chartiers Houston Stadium the Vikings were looking for payback and revenge is a dish best served cold.Quarterback Lenny Williams led Sto Rox’s (12-0) to a 24-19 win over Clairton (10-2).The physical tools always have been there for Williams: arm strength, quickness, speed, patience and leadership qualities. He’s an elite player who seem to put it all together as a senior.Williams is the first player in WPIAL history with more than 10,000 yards of offense and has passed for 34 touchdowns this season.Sto Rox took an early 6-0 first quarter lead on a Lenny Williams 12 yard touchdown run.The Bears showed the heart of a champion when Ryan Williams threw a 12 yard touchdown pass to Aaron Matthews to even the score at 6-6.The Bears took a 13-6 halftime lead when Vance Allen returned an interception 32 yards for a touchdown.Division I prospect Brendan Blair got on the scoreboard with a 5 yard touchdown run to close the gap to 13-12.Blair leads the team with 18 touchdowns and 800 yards rushing. He is being recruited as a wide receiver and defensive back.For Blair, competing is a burning fire that never dies. It’s like the pilot light inside an oven. It might be smaller and dimmer, but it’s always there.Williams turned into the “Turnover Machine” for the Vikings. He lost two fumbles and his interception was returned for a touchdown. He almost handed the game over to the Bears.Williams, who is one of the state’s best players, began to give the Bears fits with his scrambling ability. He ran for 133 yards and made his presence felt on offense and defense.Williams returned an interception 42 yards for a touchdown to give the Vikings an 18-13 lead.“Lenny is a big time player,” said Blair. “Big time players make big time plays in big time games.”The lead was short lived because Harrison Dreher ran around, through and out raced the Vikings for a 53 yard touchdown. Clairton took the lead 19-18.After getting over some jitters in the first half, Williams was able to take over the game. He passed and scrambled the Vikings down the field and his 22 yard touchdown run put Sto Rox ahead for good and into the championship game Saturday at Heinz Field.“He’s a good player,” Clairton coach Tom Nola said. “We had him a number of different times, but he always seemed to get out of it.”Sto Rox will face North Catholic Saturday at 11 a.m. The Vikings could be overlooking the Trojans who will be making their first WPIAL championship appearance.“We haven’t accomplished anything yet,” said Blair. “We had to get this monkey off our backs. Our goal isn’t just to make it to the championship. We are going to win it.”Western Pennsylvania has been called the cradle of quarterbacks and Williams is one of the best. He can run, pass and defend.Williams and Blair are out to prove that beating Clairton was no fluke.last_img read more

Pitt ends skid, edges Virginia Tech 21-16

first_imgPitt’s James Conner breaks thru Virginia Tech defenders for a 15 yard touchdown run, Conner rushed for two touchdowns in the Panthers 21-16 win. (Courier Photo/William McBride)PITTSBURGH (AP) – Pittsburgh held a team meeting before its game Thursday night against Virginia Tech to provide a reminder that all was not lost despite a three-game skid.“We told each other we can’t go down 0-4, we can’t have this losing streak, we have to redeem ourselves in prime time,” wide receiver Tyler Boyd said. “That’s what we did.”Chad Voytik’s arm – and more surprisingly, his legs – led the way. The sophomore quarterback ran for a career-high 118 yards, threw a touchdown pass to Boyd and even caught his first pass since middle school as the Panthers held on for a 21-16 victory.Pitt’s Tyler Boyd from Clairton High hauls in a 53 yard touchdown pass in the Panthers 21-16 win over Virginia Tech (Courier Photo/William McBride)“We needed it bad,” Voytik said. “I got emotional after the game because I knew how big it was. Just how hard our guys have worked. The stage was big and we come out and performed.”James Conner ran for 85 yards and two scores for the Panthers (4-3, 2-1 ACC), who took control early and fended off a late rally by the Hokies.Virginia Tech (4-3, 1-2) trailed by 12 in the fourth quarter but had the ball and a chance to take the lead in the final minutes. Michael Brewer’s fourth-down pass to Cam Phillips sailed high and the Panthers ran out the clock.“I thought that we came in here and made a lot of plays, but we sure missed a lot of plays,” Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer said. “We also had some opportunities that we didn’t capitalize on, and those come back to get you.”Brewer shook off a slow start to finish with 265 yards passing and a 14-yard scoring strike to Phillips, but the Hokies remained winless in four visits to Heinz Field.Forced to plumb the bottom of the depth chart at running back with Shai McKenzie, Marshawn Williams and Trey Edmunds all out with injury, Virginia Tech could do little offensively. The Hokies ran for 26 yards, the longest run of the night Sam Rogers’s 9-yard burst.“We have good backs, but give (Pitt) credit, they were tough,” Beamer said. “They crowded and blitzed us, and we needed to throw the ball a little bit better and connect on a couple more that we had an opportunity to. Then, it would have been a different game.”Instead, it was an ugly one. The teams combined for five fumbles, 15 penalties and little rhythm in what likely amounted to an elimination game in the wide-open Coastal Division.Pitt came in reeling, having seen its promising 3-0 start evaporate into puzzling losses to Iowa, Akron and Virginia. The opportunity to be any sort of factor heading into the season’s second half, the Panthers responded with a dominant – if not exactly crisp – performance.Relying heavily its trio of sophomore stars Voytik, Boyd and Conner and the nation’s fourth-ranked defense, Pitt took a 14-6 halftime lead. Voytik found Boyd down the seam on the Panthers’ second possession and the Boyd did the rest, catching it at the Virginia Tech 30 and sidestepping two defenders on his way to a 53-yard touchdown, Pitt’s longest pass play of the season.Virginia Tech didn’t pick up a first down until there were 6 minutes left in the half as Brewer struggled to get anything going. He overthrew some receivers and short-hopped passes to others.Only Pitt miscues kept Virginia Tech close. Twice the Panthers had the ball inside the Hokies 35 only to come away with no points. Still, Conner bolted in from 15 yards out to make it 14-3 before Virginia Tech pulled within eight on Joey Slye’s second field goal. The kick came at the end of a strange sequence that included Pitt having an interception called back because of a late hit on Brewer, and Phillips dropping the ball innocently on the wet turf without being touched as he darted toward the end zone.The Hokies made it 14-9 early in the second half before the Panthers appeared to put it away in the fourth quarter when they stopped Virginia Tech on fourth down and Voytik followed by darting 49 yards on a read-option and Conner bulled his way in from 13 yards out.Pitt missed a chance to take a two touchdown-lead when the Hokies blocked Chris Blewitt’s field goal attempt and the brief appearance of “Beamer Ball” seemed to give Virginia Tech life.Virginia Tech responded with a brisk 80-yard drive, with Brewer hitting Phillips to cut it to five. Pitt couldn’t run out the clock but the Hokies drove to midfield before stalling. Brewer’s final pass sailed high and Phillips absorbed a punishing blow as it feel incomplete. There was no flag thrown and the Panthers exhaled after resurrecting their season.last_img read more

Schäfer’s focus now on World Cup qualification

first_img continue to grow HEAD coach of Jamaica’s senior national men’s football team Winfried Schäfer said all effort must be applied to ensure the Reggae Boyz’s continued growth. The Jamaica football group returned to the island on Monday night, a day after making history when becoming the first Caribbean country to play in the CONCACAF Gold Cup final. They had twice made it to the semis before – in 1993 when they finished third and in 1998. Also at the tournament, where the Reggae Boyz topped Group B with seven of the maximum nine points, Jamaica beat the United States for the first time in America, winning their semi-final encounter 2-1 at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. In the final, they were beaten 3-1 by Mexico, whose goals were scored by Andres Guardado (31st), Jes?s Corona (47th), and Oribe Peralta (61st). Sixtieth-minute substitute Darren Mattocks (82nd) scored for Jamaica. Before the Gold Cup, Jamaica had participated in the Copa America, where they impressed despite losing all three group matches – 1-0 against Uruguay, Paraguay, and world number one Argentina, who were led by the world’s best player, Lionel Messi. Crowning themselves Caribbean champions in November was another big moment for the Boyz in their upward movement. “Now, we have to make a big step in our qualification. We have to keep this. We have to make more, more, and more,” said Schafer. He reflected on Jamaica’s historic 1998 World Cup Qualification (WCQ) and said Jamaica must not allow its programme to become “stagnant” then pumped his chest and raised his arms with clenched fists to indicate that they must continue to grow in “stature”. Having said that, the coach expressed gratitude to the clubs for releasing Jamaica’s players. “I want to say thank you to all clubs to give the players for two tournaments,” Schäfer said. Their next task will be respective home-and-away WCQ matches against Nicaragua on September 4 and 8. “I hope our key players come back for the Nicaragua game. We need out best players, our best team for qualification,” the German pointed out. “I do not know much about Nicaragua … (but) I believe in our team,” he said. “Nicaragua could be like El Salvador, a lot of fight, difficult. In Nicaragua, it’s not easy to win.” Jamaica had to work overtime to beat El Salvador 1-0 in a Gold Cup group match in Toronto. Prior to that match, the Reggae Boyz threatened to strike before settling a money dispute with the Jamaica Football Federation. Schäfer said he wants no such distractions for WCQ games. “We have to clear everything before we play Nicaragua. The players are to focus only on this match and for the World Cup 2018. Then we go step by step,” he remarked. Winning that tie thrusts them forward to face Costa Rica, Panama, and Haiti in a four-team group from which to advance. “Nicaragua is a new match, a new situation than Costa Rica, Panama, (which is a) very good team; Haiti, very good team. The group is very, very difficult.” Still, he loves his team and its chances. “I told my players thank you, thank you for your work for Jamaica,” he said of their historical Gold Cup campaign. Pointing to the shiny object around his neck, he continued: “I told them this is not a silver medal, this is a gold medal.”last_img read more

Expert view on Roberto Firmino: Versatile Brazil star can succeed at Liverpool

first_imgIn Roberto Firmino, Liverpool have landed a versatile attacker who can perform a number of roles at Anfield and has the potential to succeed despite a big transfer fee, talkSPORT have been told.The Reds have landed the Hoffenheim star for a £29million fee as they look to improve their squad following a difficult last campaign.And South American football expert Tim Vickery feels he can be a success on Merseyside.He told Hawksbee and Jacobs: “[In Brazil] we’ve only really got to know him since he was called up in November. He was an unknown to the Brazilian public until then – he’s made his career abroad.“He’s only played nine times for Brazil, five times as a substitute, but I like him a lot.“I know people will bring up the open goal he missed against Colombia, when he put a sitter over the bar but he’s scored four times in nine games, which is a pretty good rate of return, and he’s shown a lot of versatility.He can bang them in from 30 yards but he’s also very mobile. He can drop off and combine, his movement is quick and intelligent but it is a lot of money.“He’s adapted very well to Germany, so why not to Liverpool. It’s a lot of money and the pressure is on him, let’s find out how he does.”And asked whether Firmino will able to dovetail with current Red star Philippe Coutinho, Vickery is fairly confident he can.He added: “I can’t see any reason why they can’t play together, especially if Brendan Rodgers is thinking of a false nine type of situation.”last_img read more

Love’s big question

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECasino Insider: Here’s a look at San Manuel’s new high limit rooms, Asian restaurant Financial woes are among the greatest contributors to rocky relationships. And yet many people fail to discuss financial habits before committing to someone for the rest of their life. To avoid hardship down lover’s lane, financial advisers say couples should spend as much time checking out the assets and credit history of their partner as they do on their more romantic qualities. The tricky part is tackling a partner’s financial troubles without tainting the relationship. A recent survey conducted by Minneapolis-based Fair Isaac Corp., which tabulates the famous FICO score named for it, found that financial problems actually create more stress than infidelity. The survey also noted that more people are interested in financial compatibility than sexual compatibility. But you can’t ask someone their FICO score on the first date. Or can you? Janice Graham, a retirement investment specialist in Ontario, Calif., has no qualms about bringing up the F-word at the beginning of a relationship. Michelle Barnett put love before money – her beau didn’t know diddly about saving. Several months before Barnett’s wedding day, she discovered that her joint bank account had gone dry. Not long after, the love she had for her spendthrift fiance also evaporated. “He used our wedding money to buy ridiculous things. He spent thousands and thousands of dollars,” said Barnett, a 23-year-old student from Chatsworth. “I called it off. No more wedding.” Too bad Cupid doesn’t consult FICO scores before shooting arrows. “I mean, love is important. But when the going gets tough, it’s not going to pay the bills,” she said. “And while a FICO score can take away the euphoria of love, love should be sensible, too.” Graham’s advice: Be direct in a comical way. For example, instead of asking your date’s sign, how about asking what their FICO score is. If they don’t know what a FICO score is, explain it to them and see how they react. A FICO score is generated by Fair Isaac, a publicly traded company that pulls information from three major credit bureaus. The score is important because it allows lenders to determine a borrower’s spending habits and the amount of outstanding debt. Scores range from 500 to 850, with better credit receiving higher scores. But if your date’s FICO score isn’t easy to glean, there are other ways to determine one’s creditworthiness. Graham said it is important to notice the little things. Does your partner use credit more than cash? Are bills piled up throughout the house? And how about cars? Does it seem like your partner is driving a car beyond his or her means? In some cases, spending styles can end up being just as important as religion or having children. It certainly was for Cynthia Rogers when she met her husband more than two decades ago. “Simply put, we were both broke,” said the 48-year-old film editor from Topanga. “And that probably worked to our advantage.” Scraping by can build an invaluable bond, enabling the couple to better understand what it’s like to live without money. At the same time, frugal habits are important to learn to combat the lure of life’s material temptations. Rogers said she and her husband have a common understanding of each other and “we talk about everything before we spend money.” But there are situations when harsh financial realities are simply inevitable. Usually major purchases, such as a home, instigate the trouble. Mortgage lenders often ask for FICO scores from both parties. The problem is that each person may have vastly different FICO scores. And if they are too divergent, mortgage lenders are likely to deny a loan altogether. That being said, Andrea Schaffer, a financial representative with Strategic Financial Group in Los Angeles, doesn’t believe a rift in FICO scores warrants a breakup. Some lenders are willing to negotiate and will often overlook a weaker FICO. “Much of this has to do with the positioning of a title on a loan,” Schaffer said. “Stronger applicants can usually be the sole applicant. And then you can work at improving the other person’s FICO score.” Schaffer also said it is not a good idea to have a joint credit account, especially if your partner has a substandard FICO. Eventually, the partner’s spending habits will eat away at your own FICO score. Perhaps among the most important lesson couples learn about each other’s spending habits is that FICO scores do not merge in marriage. David R. Johnson, director of business development at ByDesign Financial Solutions in Los Angeles, said people often think that their spouse’s FICO score will automatically become their own upon marriage. “For that reason, many bad habits can start when a spouse becomes a co-signer on something like a credit card,” Johnson said. Budgeting is yet another important strategy when factoring compatibility. Some people have never budgeted in their entire life, then when they are finally in a relationship, the whole notion is completely foreign. To avoid this, Schaffer recommends sitting down with your partner and determining monthly expenses. Once the couple has a good idea of where their expenses lie, they can develop a spending strategy. Debbie Lebiet, 46, knew her husband didn’t have much money when she started dating him five years ago. “And my mother also knew that if I married him, I certainly wasn’t doing it for the money,” said Lebiet, an event coordinator in the South Bay. “But I’m the saver and he is the spender. And that’s how it goes.” Of course, Lebiet and her husband also budget. For everything he spends, she makes sure she is saving almost double the amount. “One of us has to be disciplined,” Lebiet noted.

first_imgDonegal star Michael Murphy believes the GAA may be better off calling a halt to pre-match parades.Michael MurphyThere were ugly scenes last Sunday prior to Armagh’s Ulster Championship quarter-final with Cavan when a massive brawl broke out before the ball was even thrown in.The Glenswilly man admits that he can take or leave what is becoming part of a major pre-match build-up. “It’s different with the club, where you play the game straight away, and you get used to that as well. If that’s the case with the county I’d be happy enough with that too.”A major scuffle broke out between both teams after Armagh lined up behind the Cavan flag, which was being carried by the St Michael’s Scout Band.Cavan forward Martin Dunne was injured in the fracas.The GAA is coming under pressure to address the pre-match parade, and Murphy told Sky Sport it may be better off omitting it completely. “It wouldn’t be too bad, one way or the other,” said Murphy. “Is it needless? It’s just a tradition, and whether you can speak out much against tradition I don’t know.“I suppose it may add to the whole general spectacle as such. But it’s a funny one and an individual preference, really.“There are so many different things before a game now. You go out early, get through your warm-up, which is needed, then there’s the whole thing of the toss, the parade, the national anthem, and maybe the minute’s silence, which tends to be in nearly every game at the moment.“It’s different with the club, where you play the game straight away, and you get used to that as well. If that’s the case with the county I’d be happy enough with that too.”The GAA’s Central Competitions Control Committee is reviewing video evidence and the referee’s report following the Athletic Grounds brawl. It is believed that both county boards will face fines at the very least. Rather than a parade which can add to pre-match tensions between the sides, Murphy says more players would prefer to get the game underway.“Aye, that’d be fair enough, I think you would,” he said. “I suppose you’re out on the pitch, for 20 or 30 minutes before the game. I’m sure both teams that went out on Sunday were focused on carrying out their plan, and execute the game plan.“But football and hurling throws up things that you really can’t plan for. It’s how you react as individuals and how you react as a team, and what your principles are.”MURPHY SAYS TIME MAY HAVE COME TO SCRAP MATCH PARADE was last modified: June 12th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalGAAglenswillyMichael Murphyparadeslast_img read more

Los Directores: Mexico’s Famous Filmmakers

first_imgGet to know the three Mexican filmmakers dominating Hollywood and the Oscars. Let’s take a look at los Directores — the Directors.Cover Image: Alfonso Cuarón, Guillermo del Toro, and Alejandro González Iñárritu via LA TimesOver the past few years, nearly every major filmmaking award can be tied to these three filmmakers either through nominations or wins. Not only do they all come from Mexico, they frequently collaborate with each other. Each of their successes has pushed the trio further into the spotlight.Together, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Alfonso Cuarón, and Guillermo del Toro have created some of the best films ever made. Not only do they share their successes together, they have also made careers for master cinematographers, writers, and actors.Alejandro González IñárrituImage via IndieWireAlejandro González Iñárritu was born in Mexico City, Mexico. At 16, he was expelled from school and began to travel the world as a sailor.Actually, when I think about growing up, I feel most affected by two travels that I made working in cargo boats when I was 16 and 18. One of them crossed through the Mississippi and Baton Rouge and Mobile, Alabama, and another went all the way to Europe. On the last trip, I stayed in Europe for one year with $1,000, working everywhere I could, doing everything. Those years shaped me a lot and taught me the value of exploring different things. I didn’t have a normal academic career. I never studied cinema. I learned from life. – A.V. ClubAfter his travels, he returned to Mexico City and attended college at the Universidad Iberoamericana. There he studied communications and landed a job as a radio DJ on the rock station WFM. He became the director of the station four years later, turning WFM into one of the most popular radio stations in Mexico. He also began composing music for a series of films.Iñárritu eventually made his way into making commercials and eventually met writer Guillermo Arriaga. Together the two would go on to make the film Amores Perros. The film masterfully combined three different stories tied around a single car crash. It was also the film debut of actor Gael García Bernal.Amores Perros won the Critic’s Week Grand Prize at Cannes and earned an Academy Award Nomination for Best Foreign Language Film. The film lost to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.Iñárritu next worked on the Mexico segment for the film September 11 as well as returning to commercial work. He created ads for Volkswagen, Coca-Cola, and BMW. He made it a point to always write the commercials as well, which helped him in his storytelling.I don’t have anything against commercials, and I really like BMWs, to tell you the truth. [Laughs.] One of the reasons why I agreed to do it is that they gave me complete freedom. I just had to have the car in it and write a story around it. I wanted to do something serious set in a Latin American country, but again, it was an exercise in style for me. I want to make something with a guerrilla documentary style. I didn’t care about the car, you know what I mean? In this particular story, there has to be a car, so I put the fucking car in there. If they give me a BMW, then great. But I considered it a chance to make a good short film, and fortunately, they paid me well for it. It wasn’t difficult for me to accept it as a commercial, because I had no restrictions. If I presented that short to somebody who doesn’t know about the BMW film series, I doubt they’d even notice it was a commercial. – A.V. ClubFollowing his successful collaboration with Guillermo Arriaga, the two teamed up again on the film 21 Grams. The film follows a similar format to Amores Perros, in which three stories are intertwined around an accident. Unlike the first film, this film was made in English. The two followed this film with another tragic tale, this time intertwining four stories in Babel. Together, these films are commonly referred to as The Death Trilogy.Babel was a hit with critics, receiving seven Oscar Nominations. Alejandro González Iñárritu was the first Mexican director to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Directing and the Directors Guild of America Award for Outstanding Directing. Babel earned Iñárritu the Best Director Award at Cannes, the fist Mexican-born director to have won the Prix de la mise en scène.Iñárritu’s next film, Biutiful, was filmed in both Mexico and Spain. The film earned an Oscar Nomination for Best Foreign Language Film. Possibly more impressive, Javier Bardem earned an Oscar Nomination for Best Actor in a Leading Role. It was the first time an actor had been nominated for an entirely Spanish-speaking role.Biutiful was the fourth and final collaboration between Iñárritu and his cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto. Since then, Prieto has gone on to work on projects like Ben Affleck’s Argo and Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street and Vinyl.He followed this film with a series of shorts. His next feature became one of the most acclaimed films in years, Birdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance). The film was a technological masterpiece, as it moved like a single continuous take for the entirety of the film. Shooting was constantly rehearsed and shot in sequence. It only took two weeks to edit the final picture.The film went on to earn nine Oscar nominations, winning four. Iñárritu walked away with three Oscars himself for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Writing. His cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki walked away with the Oscar for Best Cinematography — making him a back-to-back winner. More on that later.Currently Alejandro González Iñárritu is producing the upcoming tv series The One Percent, in which he directs the first two episodes. He also just wrapped his next feature film The Revenant. Working again with cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki, the two are pushing their filmmaking knowledge. Much of the film is practical and natural sets shot with natural light. Want more articles on Mexican filmmaking? Let us know in the comments below. Alfonso CuarónImage via IndieWireAlfonso Cuarón was also born in Mexico City. He studied philosophy and filmmaking at National Autonomous University of Mexico. It was there he met cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki. Together the two made their first short film, Vengeance is Mine.Alfonso and his brother Carlos Cuarón wrote Sólo con tu pareja, a romantic comedy that went on to earn the Best Original Story at the Ariel Awards. Alfonso was nominated for Mejor Ópera Prima (Best First Work) and Emmanuel Lubeski was nominated for Best Cinematography.In 1995, Alfonso made his first American feature film, A Little Princess. The film earned Emmanuel Lubeski his first Oscar Nomination for Best Cinematography. He followed with a remake of the Charles Dickens classic Great Expectations. It wasn’t a particularly memorable film, but it was a decent adaptation.Alfonso Cuarón returned to Mexico for his next feature film, Y Tu Mamá También. The film was released a year after Iñárritu’s Amorres Perros, making Mexico an up-and-coming powerhouse for films. Both films starred Gael García Bernal, who would go on to become an international movie star, producer, and eventually a director himself.Y Tu Mamá También earned the Cuarón brothers an Oscar Nomination for Best Writing, Original Screenplay. It was a monster hit all over the world. Its success earned Alfonso the opportunity to direct a major American blockbuster franchise, Harry Potter.Cuarón directed Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, which many critics heralded as the best film in the franchise. It took a much more serious approach than the previous installments, and set the tone for all of the following films. This film made the Harry Potter franchise become one of the most successful blockbuster series of all time.Following the success of Harry Potter, Cuarón was able to choose his next project. He adapted the P.D. James novel Children of Men. He was able to bring Emmanuel Lubezki on board as his cinematographer, and the two once again made another masterpiece. The film is packed full of tiny details and exquisite cinematography. Take a look at this breakdown of the minor background details from Nerdwriter.Children of Men earned Alfonso another Academy Award Nomination for Best Writing. He also earned a nomination for Best Editing, and Lubezki earned his fourth Best Cinematography nomination. Children of Men was praised for its technical work as well, and the film’s famous long take is still studied. They built a custom car rig specifically for that scene in the film.As impressive as all of that is, it wouldn’t come close to the technical advances and achievements in Alfonso Cuarón’s next film, Gravity. Pre-production for the film started years before cameras rolled. They crew actually had to wait for the technology to catch up for the shots they had in mind. With technological advancements, like robotic camera arms, they were able to start production. Take a look behind the scenes with this video from The Wrap.Gravity earned ten Oscar Nominations, winning seven awards. Alfonso Cuarón walked away with Best Director and Best Editing. He was the first Mexican to win an Oscar for Best Director. Emmanuel Lubezki won Best Cinematography, and would win again the next year with Iñárritu’s Birdman.Alfonso Cuarón is currently writing, producing, and directing the tv series Believe.Guillermo del ToroImage via BlastrGuillermo del Toro was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. He was raised in a very strict Catholic household, which would go on to influence his mythical world greatly. He grew up making films on his father’s 8mm camera, and his passion led him to study at the Centro de Investigación y Estudios Cinematográficos.Del Toro was fascinated by special effects and makeup. He studied under legendary special effects artist Dick Smith and would go on to spend ten years working as a special effects and makeup designer. He began directing short films, eventually writing and directing several episodes of the cult series La Hora Marcada. The show was the equivalent to a Mexican Twilight Zone. Other writers and directors included Alfonso Cuarón and Emmanuel Lubezki.Following the series, Guillermo directed his first feature film, Cronos. The film was his first collaboration with cinematographer Guillermo Navarro. The vampire horror film is still considered one of the best in the genre. The film won eight Ariel Awards from the Mexican Academy of film. Guillermo del Toro won the Golden Ariel, as well as Mejor Dirección (Best Director), Best Original Story, Best Screenplay, and Best First Work.Here’s a great interview (with subtitles) of Guillermo del Toro on filmmaking and Cronos from Gabriel Gal.Following the success of Cronos, del Toro secured funding for his next feature, Mimic. It became known that del Toro earned a $30 million budget for the film. Guillermo was plagued by a multitude of micro-managers, and he was struggling to work on the film. Then things took a turn for the worse. Guillermo’s father was kidnapped and held for ransom.We would get ransom notes with many syntax and spelling errors. It affects you. – UproxxKidnappers demanded $1 million for the release of his father. The del Toro family had nowhere near enough money to pay the ransom. As the negotiations dragged on, Guillermo wrote notes to help him cope with the ordeal. The kidnapping went on for months, and the story of the ordeal began to make headlines.Guillermo del Toro had previously made friends with director James Cameron, who had given Guillermo notes on Cronos. Cameron took del Toro to a bank, and handed him over $1 million in cash. Guillermo used the money, and his father was finally released after 72 days in captivity. Following his release, the entire family moved to the United States.I cannot go back to Mexico as a director because of the kidnapping of my father. A film is a highly visible venture, and I can’t risk it… Every day, every week, something happens that reminds me that I am in involuntary exile [from my country]. – TimeGuillermo del Toro returned to directing with The Devil’s Backbone. Soon after, he undertook several comic book adaptations with Blade II and Hellboy. It would be his next feature that would earn him critical acclaim.El Laberinto del Fauno — Pan’s Labyrinth — is considered to be Guillermo del Toro’s masterpiece. He had turned down several Hollywood producers who offered double the budget to make the film in English. He did not want to compromise the story and was determined to film in Spanish. In fact, del Toro himself translated the English subtitles for the film. The film was partially produced by Alfonso Cuarón, and Iñárritu helped in the editing bay.Pan’s Labyrinth was nominated for six Academy Awards. Del Toro was nominated for Best Original Screenplay, and cinematographer Guillermo Navarro won Best Cinematography.Following the success of Pan’s Labyrinth, del Toro was chosen to direct the live-action adaptation of The Hobbit. Following the success of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Hobbit was set to become the next major entry in the franchise. After two years of pre-production and development hell, Guillermo del Toro left the project because of MGM’s financial problems. The Hobbit would eventually be split into three separate films, for which del Toro is still credited as a co-writer.During that time, Guillermo had been working on his first novel. The Strain, and its two sequels, garnered enough of a following that the book was adapted into an original television series years later.After completing Hellboy II, del Toro turned back to an original story with the kaiju film Pacific Rim. The film was a solid summer blockbuster that spawned comic books, an animated series, and a VR experience.This is my most un-modest film, this has everything. The scale is enormous and I’m just a big kid having fun. – Shock Till You DropGuillermo del Toro is seemingly all over the map. He is working on feature films, producing television series, creating comics, writing, and more. His latest film, Crimson Peak, was released in October of this year. In this video, del Tor sits down with Christopher Nolan to discuss the film and directing in general.last_img read more

Sales Is a Numbers Game (But Not the Numbers You Think)

Many would have you believe that cold calling is dead, but the successful have no fear of the phone; they use it to outproduce their competitors. Download Now “Sales is a numbers game,” they say. Then they propose that, “if you want better numbers, just make more calls.” And when low activity is the problem, this might be a reasonably good answer.But most of the numbers that really matter aren’t captured in any format in which a sales manager can easily see them. Sales is a numbers game, but not the numbers you think.The NumbersOn a scale from 1 to 10, with 1 being “a disaster” and 10 being “off-the-charts amazing,” how effective is this salesperson?Oh wait, I should have mentioned that it doesn’t matter what you think. It matters what your prospective clients think. How would they answer these questions?On a scale from 1 – 10, how much value does this salesperson create for you during your interactions? How much through the process?1 – 10, with 1 being “a complete inability to listen to anyone other than themselves” and 10 being “the best experience I’ve ever had,” how well does this salesperson listen?On a scale from 1 – 10, how much do you trust this salesperson to help you with your biggest, most important results? From 1 – 10, how much do they care about you and your business?1 – 10, rate this person’s initiative, determination, and resourcefulness on your experience with them to date.How well is this salesperson going to do as an extended part of your team. Answer 1 to 10, with 1 being “doesn’t last a day” and 10 being “they’re my secret weapon and my strategic advantage.”1 – 10, how likely is it that this salesperson can help you convince the rest of your team to move forward with the solution she proposed? In hours, how much time has this salesperson spent with you and your team?If you had to pay a premium over and above any competitor’s proposal to buy from this salesperson and their company, as a percentage, how much more would you pay for the value that this salesperson created?On a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being “we are so, so very dead in the water” and 10 being “they’re going to beg us to act faster,” how much has this salesperson helped you to justify the price to the rest of your organization?None of these numbers are being captured in your salesforce automation. None of them are easily counted, making them difficult to measure. Much of what matters isn’t easily measured, and good bit of it is invisible.If sales is a numbers game, the numbers aren’t the ones you believe they are. You can’t capture these numbers, but you can go see for yourself.QuestionsWhat numbers really matter?Is more activity always the right remedy for poor results? When is something else a better solution?If more activity increases your chances of creating more opportunities, what increases your chances of winning those opportunities? Okay, how do you count that?last_img read more

Umesh Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav rested for final T20I vs West Indies

first_imgIndian team management have tweaked the squad for the third and final Twenty20 International against the West Indies on November 11 in Chennai, having decided to rest some of the key players.Umesh Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav have been given rest from the final T20I while Siddarth Kaul finds a place in the squad in place of them.According to the BCCI press release, the decision has been taken to allow the trio to be in the best physical condition ahead of India’s tour to Australia.Bumrah and Kuldeep have been the two premier bowlers for India in the ongoing T20I series against the Windies. While Kuldeep has returned with five wickets in the two matches, Bumrah has scalped three.While it is Kuldeep’s wicket-taking abilities that makes him so invaluable, Bumrah holds perhaps the most important place in the Indian bowling line-up.Bumrah not only picks wickets, his ability to bowl in the death overs and the way he stems the flow of runs benefits the bowlers who bowl along with him.With Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s form being a bit of a worry for India, Bumrah, along with Khaleel Ahmed, has played the role of the major returners with the ball.With Bumrah rested, India will depend on Bhuvneshwar and Khaleel, who has also picked three wickets in two matches, to hunt in pair.Yuzvendra Chahal, who has not yet played a T20I match against the Windies, might find a place in the playing XI now with Kuldeep, the other wrist spinner, rested.advertisementIndia have already won the T20I series against the Windies by taking an unassailable 2-0 lead.

Buy Knives. Cut Steak. Alleviate Homelessness.

first_img 12 Classic Sci-Fi Novels Everyone Who Likes Reading Should Read If you’ve never heard of Ball and Buck, then perhaps the company’s phone number will help serve as a shortcut to understanding what the brand is all about. The number is:617-262-1776That 617 area code tells you they’re based in Boston, and that’s not an irrelevant detail here, what with all the history and patriotism and whatnot. The 262 part? That’s just three numbers that happen to be together. The 1776? Well, that’s pure America, baby. And in some ways, many ways, even, so too is this brand. It says it right there on the site: EVERYTHING MADE IN USABall and Buck is a purveyor of fine clothes, accessories, and sundry goods intended for use by the rugged but refined gentleman. If you know how to make a perfect Old Fashioned and also once built a fire using some goddamned flint and steel, chances are you’re going to like that they have to offer.And if you know that part of enjoying a great steak is slicing into that ribeye/fillet/flat iron with a great steak knife, then you’re probably going to want to go ahead and order this $198 Premium Steak Knife Set that comes from a collaboration between Ball and Buck, R. Murphy Knives, and Boston HandyWorks. (Yes, that’s 198 bucks for a set containing four knives, AKA $49.50 per knife. But not exactly that math, because the box is so lovely… but yeah, expensive. And yeah, worth it. Read on.)First let’s talk about the knivesThere are four of ’em. Each knife in the set has a 5-inch, full tang blade made out of 420HC high carbon stainless steel. The blades are mounted into their elegant walnut handles with solid brass rivets. They balance beautifully in your hand, and Jesus H. are they sharp. Like surgical instrument sharp. Like Connery’s Bond in a tux sharp. Like… they have a very fine edge, is the point I want to make clear. The blades are fashioned by R. Murphy Knives, a company based in Avery, MA, and dedicated to crafting peerless cutting implements. (When the company was founded back in 1850, they made dental and surgical tools, so go figure.)Now let’s talk about the boxSure, you’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but let’s be honest: presentation matters. You got dressed before leaving the house today, right? (Or… maybe you’re not leaving the house today?) You put a sprig of parsley atop your entree, yes? Well the box in which these steak knives are stored is every bit as elegant as the knives themselves. It’s hand-crafted out of polished American maple wood and features four magnetic closure points that ensure it stays sealed unless you wish otherwise. It looks great, and it does its job.But that’s not what’s important here: the reason this elegantly simple knife box is notable is that the brand behind it, Boston HandyWorks, is dedicated to helping people out of homelessness.

Georgia UNICEF sends school supplies to displaced children from South Ossetia

More than 500 children are among the thousands of Georgians who began to flee when the clashes broke out last week.UNICEF has sent 35 school kits and 10 football kits, along with information materials for parents and social workers, to the local government, which will pass them to 970 displaced people currently being housed in nine sanatoriums and hotels of the region.The agency emphasized that these sports and educational supplies are key to helping children overcome the trauma they experienced during the bombing of their villages in South Ossetia.On the health front, the agency is working with the country’s health authorities to immunize the displaced against measles, mumps and rubella to prevent an outbreak of epidemics. Vitamin A capsules, essential drugs and first aid kits are also in the pipeline.Currently, over 2,500 displaced women and children from South Ossetia have been relocated to various hotels and sanatoriums in six regions of Georgia.School kits form a core part of UNICEF response in emergencies. Each serves 40 students and contains basic school supplies such as exercise books, pencils, erasers and scissors. In addition, the kits provide a wooden teaching clock, plastic cubes for counting and a set of laminated posters for teaching math and reading. The kit is supplied in a locked aluminium box; the lid can double as a blackboard when coated with the special paint included in the kit. read more

Central Eastern European leaders warn against new status quo of instability

President Bujar Nishani of Albania addresses the General Assembly. UN Photo/Kim Haughton “Despite all the propaganda that was thrown out from Russia, the Ukraine crisis had nothing to do with protecting the rights of ethnic Russians. It was much simpler; it was, since the very first moment, about one’s country’s ambition to redraw its own borders to satisfy a territory appetite of a more powerful neighbour,” he said. On other matters, he said that to safeguard development gains, the world needs to once and for all eradicate all forms of poverty everywhere, address environmental degradation and promote inclusive economic growth. His region, the Western Balkans, is fully committed to a path of political stability and the European Union membership obtained in June enables Albania to take the first steps to intensify its reform process. “The Independent State of Kosova, the youngest state in the region”, has managed, he continued, in less than six years, to integrate into major international organizations and in that time also become an important factor of peace and stability. It is recognized to date by some 108 UN Member States, Mr. Nishani noted, calling on countries which have not yet done so to recognize it. Sustainable development was the focus of Janos Áder’s address to the General Assembly, for whom the Hungarian President had tough words about climate change. President Ivo Josipovic of the Republic of Croatia addresses the General Assembly. UN Photo/Cia Pak Mr. Josipovic said he was deeply concerned about the situation in Ukraine and said there was no other but a peaceful solution to the conflict. The violence must end and all sides must resort to political solutions that uphold the principles of international law including the territorial integrity of Ukraine. The President of Croatia said a world at peace meant a world without weapons of mass destruction, and he urged leaders to reinforce the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. The UN has a special role in maintaining peace and particularly advancing the role of women in conflict resolution and the sustainable development of post-conflict societies. On climate change, he pointed out that Croatia is a vulnerable country that is currently devastated by unprecedented floods. Cutting down greenhouse gas emissions must remain one of the main pillars of a post-2015 development agenda.“Having in mind the need for progress, we have committed ourselves to implement the Millennium Development Goals- this is our unfinished business,” he said, adding that Croatia has pledged itself to a truly transformative and people-centred framework of Sustainable Development Goals for post-2015. President Josipovic also pledged solidarity to Ebola-affected countries in West Africa and reiterated the need for Security Council reform. On a regional matter, he said that consolidating European space will be possible only with further stabilization of Southeast Europe. To that end, the region is finding ways of cooperating and laying foundation for joint development. Taking to the podium this afternoon, Romania’s Prime Minister, Victor Ponta expressed great concern for the current situation in Ukraine, given its impacts on the security of the countries in Eastern Europe. President Rossen Plevneliev of Bulgaria addresses the General Assembly. UN Photo/Kim Haughton Climate change needs to be urgently addressed, and no real transformative post-2015 development agenda would be possible unless loopholes of the current MDGs are dealt with. Mr. Plevneliev said Bulgaria does not recognize the “illegal annexation” of and referendum in Crimea, and condemns the Russian Federation for violating international law. He welcomed regional integration including through the Association Agreements of Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia with the European Union.The situation in Syria and Iraq was extremely concerning, he said, condemning in the strongest terms possible the killings of religious and ethnic minorities. The Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) fills a serious gap in international law as it establishes regulations for trade in conventional arms. He also condemned the recurrent trend of brutal and “disgusting” manifestations of anti-Semitism. Natalia Gherman, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Foreign Affairs and European Integration of Moldova said her country had chosen a “European future,” having this year signed, ratified and applied an economic agreement which makes the economy more competitive and integrates it into the mainstream of global trade. Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Foreign Affairs Natalia Gherman of Moldova addresses the General Assembly. UN Photo/Kim Haughton The next goal is to apply for a full-fledged European Union membership. Now we must focus on enhancing energy security, developing rural communities and strengthening good governance, she said. Recently a pipeline has been finalized that connects Moldova to wider Europe and similar projects will be developed in the years to come. Jobs, salaries, pensions and benefits will rise and travel to the EU along with trade and economic opportunities will open.These benefits should be shared with the people of the Transnistria region as well. The political settlement must be based on sovereignty, territorial integrity and a special political status. Continuing presence of Russian military forces is contrary to international commitments and Republic of Moldova’s national Constitution, she said, calling on Russia to withdraw and for the international community put in place a multinational peacekeeping mission. The Republic of Moldova has also faced “unjustified restrictions” on its exports to the Russian Federation, which she said she hoped could be resolved through dialogue with Russian partners based on World Trade Organization (WTO) rules. In this regard, the EU was helpful in lessening the hardship of farmers and other agriculture producers. President Bronislaw Komorowski of the Republic of Poland addresses the General Assembly. UN Photo/Cia Pak “This ideological background of the conflict is the return to the rhetoric from the first half of the previous century…the logic of the law of the mightier and the ruthless imperial domination over weaker neighbours,” Mr. Komorowski said. In recent years, Europe has witnessed a “great wave of unification” through mechanisms of integration of the European communities. Indeed, the European Union has become a guarantor of peace in Europe and far beyond its borders. “What happened six months ago in Eastern Europe dealt a blow to that and threatened security on our continent. In our part of Europe, people are again asking themselves whether war as a method of obtaining a political goal will also be the European long-term reality,” he said.He expressed solidarity with the people of Syria, Libya, Israel, Gaza and many African nations in conflict. Nobody could ever take the place of the UN in providing aid to refugees and other victims of these humanitarian catastrophes. These conflicts were driven by absolute power, which is almost always corrupt and incapable of lifting countries out of poverty. Hence, it is essential to attain the appropriate inclusion of these questions in the new UN development agenda. Also today, Albanian President, Bujar Nishani said that while maintaining peace and security was a top UN priority, disasters were erupting at a frightening pace and the world spiralling into insecurities in South Sudan, Syria, Iraq and in his region, in Ukraine. Prime Minister Victor-Viorel Ponta of Romania addresses the General Assembly. UN Photo/Cia Pak The crisis started with the “unilateral annexation” of Crimea, an integral part of the sovereign State of Ukraine, by Russia. Romania was against any form of external pressure towards the states in Eastern Europe having European integration aspirations. “A strong, united and sovereign Ukraine, committed to its European path and to reforms in the economic and political fields is in the best interest of Europe,” he said, calling on the international community to get involved in finding a solution. Mr. Ponta commended the UN for its constant presence in the field and its efforts to monitor the day-to-day developments on the ground. For years, the countries of Eastern Europe and the Black Sea region have been for peace and cooperation. But instability in Ossetia, Abkhazia and now Donetsk, continue to obstruct these goals. Regional cooperation is essential for ensuring stability, in building confidence and in promoting the universal principles and values of the UN. Another source of concern is the spread of extremism throughout the Middle East, namely in Iraq and Syria. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) threatens to destabilize the entire region as well as international order. In the field of development, he said a future agenda must address poverty, good governance and the rule of law. But to combat extremism, the future global development plan should also provide a platform for social inclusion, gainful employment and hope to future generations. At the podium this afternoon, Poland’s President, Bronislaw Komorowski, said that the international community needs to emphasize with “all might” that the “occupation of Crimea” and aggression in Ukraine is a violation of international law and runs roughshod over the fundamental values of the UN. “A year ago, we Europeans, could hardly imagine that after investing so much effort in reaching peace and stability a new armed conflict would arise in our neighbourhood,” said Mr. Kiska, as he also denounced the violation of the territorial integrity of any state. “What Ukraine needs today is to restore peace, stability, implement reforms and be reassured of guarantees of the inviolability of its territory,” said the Slovakian President. Only dialogue and diplomatic solution of the conflict, with the participation of Russia, will lead to a sustainable peace in Ukraine. He also underscored the need to stand united in Iraq to prevent ISIL from taking hold of any more territory and extremist ideologies from becoming successful. Slovakia, with its history of transitioning from a totalitarian regime to a democracy, knows first-hand the importance of security sector reform and the establishment of stable security institutions, such as army and police. President Kiska also pledged his commitment to stabilizing Afghanistan, where a Slovakian national led the UN Mission. Disarmament is essential for eliminating potential sources of tension and conflicts, President Kiska said, urging nations to sign the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) to help monitor and regulate the international trade of conventional weapons. Also speaking today, Croatia’s President Ivo Josipovic called on world leaders to come up with a “zero tolerance policy” towards terrorism and agree on a joint global effort to prevent extremist organizations from flourishing and gaining ground. János Ader, President of Hungary, addresses the general debate of the sixty-ninth session of the General Assembly. UN Photo/Kim Haughton “Speeches I heard in the past few days deflected responsibility and presented a narrow-mindedness,” he told the high-level debate. “Why can’t we listen to the advice of our scientists? Why can we not accept the signals of our own planet? And why are we not learning from our own example?”Mr. Áder has said Hungary was able to reduce its carbon emissions by 40 per cent, overshadowing the pledged 6 per cent in Kyoto. A successor to that protocol is due to be finalized in Paris next year.In his address, given in the renovated General Assembly Hall on a more eco-friendly UN complex, Mr. Áder highlighted Hungary’s efforts to increase its energy efficiency and use more alternative energy resources. “If you want calm, you have to prepare for disasters,” he told the 193-Member body. “It’s no longer to reduce emissions, we have to prepare for more serious natural disasters.”Taking to the podium this evening, Bulgaria’s President, Rosen Plevneliev said that over the last few months Bulgaria and the Balkans have suffered unprecedented floods and thousands of people lost their homes, crops were ruined, and many innocent people died. read more

Let us renew our will to cooperate for peace Ban declares at

“I always take great inspiration whenever I pass by, and of course when we ring it each September to mark the International Day of Peace,” Mr. Ban said.“As I remember, there was only one year we were not able to hit this Peace Bell – that was 2001 on September 11th. We were ready to have this Peace Bell ceremony on the day of the opening of the General Assembly. On that day the September 11th terrorist attacks happened, so we had to evacuate this building,” Mr. Ban recalled.“I was serving as Chef de Cabinet to the President of the General Assembly. The [President of the] General Assembly, Secretary-General Kofi Annan and myself and all other staff had to either evacuate to the basement or outside of this building” he said. Unlike many other gifts, the Peace Bell came to the United Nations courtesy of a non-governmental organization, the UN Association of Japan, even before Japan became a UN Member State. It was a sign of support of the goals and ideals of the Organization.The idea for a “bell of peace,” as it was originally known, was proposed by Mr. Chiyoji Nakagawa, a representative of the UN Association of Japan who attended the General Assembly’s sixth session, in 1951. “After surviving the cruelties and deprivations of the Second World War, Mr. Nakagawa wanted to create a symbol for humanity’s hopes for global peace,” Mr. Ban said.For five years, as the United Nations renovated its Headquarters complex along Manhattan’s East River, the Peace Bell found a temporary home in the Rose Garden. It is currently placed at the intersection of the General Assembly, Secretariat, and Conference buildings. “Over the last five years that the Peace Bell was away, too many innocent people around the world have heard only the sounds of guns and bombs,” Mr. Ban said. “Now that it is restored back to its home, let us also intensify our work to restore the bells of peace in villages and cities and countries around the world,” he added. Also speaking at today’s ceremony was President of the General Assembly Sam Kutesa who called the Peace Bell both unique and emblematic, having been cast using coins collected by the United Nations Association of Japan from children of all existing UN Member States in 1952. “Today, as we return this prominent icon of peace to its permanent location, let us recall the Declaration on the Rights of Peoples to Peace, adopted thirty years ago by the General Assembly,” Mr. Kutesa said. The Declaration reaffirmed that the aspiration for peace is universal among all peoples and that every human being has the right to live in a peaceful environment. “Each time we ring this bell in the future, we should recall our commitment towards the peaceful resolution of conflicts and the building of lasting peace,” he added. Yesterday the Secretary-General and General Assembly President planted the ‘Tree of Unity and Peace’ at Headquarters marking the end of the Second World War. Later that morning, General Assembly held a solemn ceremony remembering all the men, women and children who lost their lives during the war. read more

Brexit deal analysis Key issues from the agreement and who the winners

first_imgAfter months of painstaking, tense and tough negotiations, and an embarrassing false start on Monday, Theresa May finally returned from Brussels with a deal that will unblock long-stalled negotiations over a future trade and transition deal.  What did Mrs May give up, secure and compromise on to gain Jean-Claude Juncker’s recommendation that Britain had made “sufficient progress” on the issues of Ireland, the Brexit bill and citizens’ rights? How far did she stray from the vision she laid out in her Lancaster House speech… One stand-out success for the Prime Minister was linking the future withdrawal agreement to the future trade and transition talks, something that the EU had previously ruled out.last_img read more

Bali Briton arrested over cannabis oil admits being stupid as he faces

“This is Asia, it’s not like the west. I am guilty under Indonesian law of possession of narcotics, there’s no denying that.”Even though medicinal THC is something so widely accepted elsewhere and it was such a small amount, I foolishly crossed the line in a very strict country.”The only way now to ensure my sentence is something I will survive is to invest in the right legal representation and rehabilitation.”Doctors have been able to prescribe medicinal cannabis products to patients in the UK since November 1 after the drug was rescheduled.However, Indonesia has strict drug laws and dozens of convicted smugglers are on death row.British woman Lindsay Sandiford, from Cheltenham, was convicted of drug-smuggling offences and sentenced to death in 2013.A Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokesman said: “Our staff are assisting a British man following his arrest in Bali, and are in contact with his family, lawyer and the Indonesian authorities.” A British man arrested in Bali for allegedly smuggling cannabis oil has admitted he has been “very stupid” as he faces up to 15 years in an Indonesian prison.Pip Holmes, reportedly a 45-year-old artist from Cornwall, was one of five foreigners paraded at a news conference last week in Denpasar, the capital of Bali province.Indonesian police said he received nearly 31kg of cannabis oil in the mail and could face the death penalty if convicted.Mr Holmes, who describes himself as an artist and surfer, claims he was caught with just a tiny amount – around 3g – of medicinal THC oil, which he uses to treat his arthritis.His family has launched a crowdfunding page to raise $100,000 (nearly £80,000) for legal fees to keep the father-of-two out of prison.They say he could face a jail sentence of between five and 15 years but are hoping he can instead serve a short spell in a rehabilitation centre before being deported to the UK.

A message from Mr Holmes on the crowdfunding site said he had already been moved from a cramped police cell in Bali to a rehabilitation centre and has been helped by messages of support from his family.”For the last few days, each morning I have woken up in a terrible nightmare. I still can’t believe that I’m here and I feel sick with fear,” he said.”As it stands, I don’t know if I’m about to spend a few months in a rehabilitation or if I’m about to face five to 15 years in Kerobokan – one of the toughest prisons on earth.”Mr Holmes said he had been in Bali for two months before his arrest on December 3.”It all went terribly wrong when I was arrested for possession of a tiny amount of THC oil. Stupid much? Yes very very stupid. Right now I feel helpless and very alone,” he said. So I’m in rehab center/prison in Bali…. I was arrested with a small amount of THC oil about two weeks ago. Stupid of me, I thought I was past making dumb errors in judgement, but it seems not. 😔 I use thc and cbd to treat my arthritis pain…https://t.co/AnHSaRBKyQ— Pip Holmes (@_pipholmes) December 16, 2018 read more

Vancouver police detective fired for misconduct

first_imgVancouver police have fired a detective in the fallout of an internal affairs investigation of an officer’s relationship with a confidential informant.Detective Brian Billingsley, 38, was fired March 4 for making false statements, neglect of duty, unbecoming conduct and misconduct discovered during an ongoing investigation of the relationship between former VPD Officer Erik McGarrity and a former confidential informant, Tegan Rushworth.Billingsley’s termination is the first administrative action taken in the investigation, which has stretched on for more than a year. Two other Vancouver officers remain under investigation, department spokeswoman Kim Kapp said Wednesday. She declined to name the officers still being investigated, but did say they remain on duty.In a written response to his termination letter, Billingsley contested his firing. The Vancouver Police Guild has filed a grievance against Billingsley’s termination and is deciding whether to seek arbitration for wrongful termination, union President Jeff Kipp said.Police on Wednesday did not release any specifics surrounding Billingsley’s termination. His relation to McGarrity and Rushworth was also not made clear.McGarrity, 43, resigned in November in the midst of the internal affairs probe. He was cleared last year of criminal wrongdoing by the Washington State Patrol.WSP investigation documents, obtained through public records requests, showed that Rushworth worked as McGarrity’s informant on low-level drug-related crimes for several months in 2007. It was after she completed a prison sentence in early 2008 that Rushworth, 25, and McGarrity started their romance. They lived together for a period of time, and had a sexual relationship until late summer or early fall 2009, despite the fact that Rushworth, who reportedly had a methamphetamine habit, continued to have run-ins with the law.last_img read more

La Ruta de los Conquistadores starts tomorrow Lance Armstrong set to compete

first_imgLa Ruta de los Conquistadores is a brutal, three-day mountain-bike race in which participants traverse more than 220 kilometers from Jacó Beach to Playa Bonita, Limón.The race bills itself as “one of the most difficult athletic events on the planet,” and its website highlights reviews from participants who describe the race as a “soul-sappingly hard […] journey across laughably steep inclines.”The event sends riders through five mountain ranges and almost 30,000 feet of elevation gain. It promises “every imaginable riding surface,” from sand, to thigh-deep mud, to volcanic ash. In 2015, a participant spent 30 hours lost in the Carara Rainforest after a river swept him away.La Ruta has grown dramatically since Román Urbina first blazed the path in 1993. The race now welcomes hundreds of international riders and has helped create a genre of similar events worldwide.It has even garnered the attention of cycling’s best-known athlete, Lance Armstrong. The retired road-racing star will participate in this year’s Ruta, the race confirmed to The Tico Times.“Apparently, this shit is supposed to be terrible — like the hardest three days you could ever imagine,” Armstrong said earlier this year on his “Stages” podcast.Armstrong won seven consecutive Tour de France titles from 1999 to 2005, but he was later stripped of those accomplishments after an investigation by the United States Anti-Doping Agency.Armstrong is banned for life from sanctioned cycling events but is able to race at non-sanctioned events like La Ruta. Not that Armstrong has any expectation he’ll win. Despite his competitive nature, the 47-year-old admits he’s no longer in peak cycling shape.“They’ve got some of the best mountain bikers in the world now, and the locals – the domestic guys from Costa Rica – are insane,” Armstrong said. “They know the trails.“[…] ‘Pura Vida’ — That’s what they say down there. They have monkeys everywhere. They have alligators. I’m serious, they have alligators. I’ve seen pictures. […] I fear more the mosquitoes. I hate mosquitoes.”Armstrong also posted a video announcing his participation:Lance Armstrong at La Ruta de los Conquistadores from Mark Higgins on Vimeo.La Ruta has partnered with the Association Fight Against Childhood Cancer (ALCCI) since 2012 and expects Armstrong’s participation to increase their contribution this year.La Ruta de los Conquistadores will be held Nov. 1-3. The full course map is available here.

Amnesty sought for 125 Venezuelans jailed exiled

first_imgCARACAS, Venezuela (AP) – Venezuelan opposition leaders are asking President Hugo Chavez’s government to consider amnesty for 125 people in prison or exile.Lawmaker Edgar Zambrano says he submitted case files Friday on 80 people in exile and 45 others listed as “political prisoners” to the office of Vice President Nicolas Maduro. A swift response seems unlikely since Chavez is recovering from cancer surgery in Cuba. Among those on the list is Pedro Carmona, a business leader who temporarily took over the presidency during a failed coup against Chavez in 2002. He fled to Colombia and received asylum there.Another is Maria Lourdes Afiuni, a judge under house arrest for freeing a banker from prison while he was awaiting trial on charges of flouting currency exchange controls.The government denies Venezuela has political prisoners.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

Rows of dark green coffee plants line the winding roads leading up to the town of San Pablo in the Guatemalan highlands extending across the hills Coffee is the main source of income for people in this part of the country Most residents here grow and care for their own coffee plants have grandparents and parents who produced coffee and are now passing that knowledge on to their children "You have two options in this part of Guatemala: grow coffee or migrate" says Cipriano Juventino Niz Chilel the president of the Entre Rios coffee cooperative in San Pablo For over a century the residents in these mountainous towns have frequently chosen the first option boosting Guatemalas position in the global coffee markets But in recent years a crisis in the sector has deepenedthanks to low global coffee prices booming production in countries such as Honduras and Vietnam and recurring coffee plagues As the industry struggles to stabilize rural Guatemalans in the highlands can no longer rely on coffee as a secure income source Increasingly they are choosing to leave for the United States Over recent months Central American migrants heading to the United States and the Trump administrations zero tolerance policies aimed at deterring migrants have captured headlines around the world But todays migration from Guatemala which has a population of 165 million is just the latest phase in three decades of human movement In the 1980s hundreds of thousands of Guatemalans left their homes as refugees fleeing a particularly brutal period of the countrys civil war In the 1990s and 2000s more migrants headed north leaving behind economic crisis grinding poverty and natural disasters Today Guatemalans migrate for various reasons including to reunite with family members flee gang violence particularly by Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) and the Barrio 18 groups or escape endemic domestic or family violence In Guatemalas western highlands a range of factors are driving migration The area reports high rates of violence against women and there are few resources for victims or avenues for legal recourse Towns across the region also frequently lack basic medical services higher education options or well-maintained infrastructure A long and violent history of discrimination against the local indigenous communitiesculminating in genocide during the countrys 36-year civil war from 1960 to 1996still creates the foundation that pushes many to leave But there is now one more explanation for the regions current economic despair and migration: the crisis in the countrys coffee industry Indigenous Mayan Mam-speaking women drink coffee after a group meeting on February 12 2017 in Cajola Guatemala Women are especially affected by emigration In Cajola in the highlands of western Guatemala some 70 percent of the men have emigrated to the United States to work many leaving behind wives and children who barely know their fathers John Moore—Getty Images Guatemala is now synonymous with high-quality coffee but the plant is not native to the country In the 1700s Jesuits brought the first coffee plants to Guatemala as a decoration for their monasteries in the city of Antigua In the mid-1800s people began to cultivate the crop including across the highlands where the temperate climate and fertile soil proved ideal for its production Landowners employed indigenous workers from the highlands in large plantations maintaining the unequal economic and social system that remains in place today It was a mode of production that put Guatemala on the map when it came to coffee and by the 1990s and throughout the 2000s Guatemala was the worlds fifth largest coffee producer trailing regional giants Brazil and Colombia But in recent years Guatemalas coffee sector has periodically struggled compared to some of its international peers Coffee rusts have decimated the sector with warmer temperatures spreading the disease to higher altitudes Beginning in 2011 an aggressive bout of rust wiped out an estimated 20 percent of the regions coffee production attacking the highest-quality Bourbón and Caturra varieties At the same time climate change has also increased the frequency of droughts floods and cold shocks which can decrease or at times completely destroy production Yet despite the environmental problems the sectors most significant challenge is the low global coffee price From 2010-2012 the price of Guatemalan coffee reached over $170 and $180 a quintal (approximately 100 lbs) granting producers a windfall when they sold their crops to exporters Soon after the price began to slide downward falling to below $110 today partly because of a strong harvest in Brazil and from the other producers with lower production costs For Guatemalan producers these global prices are no longer sustainable falling below the investment it takes to grow and harvest the coffee beans And since daily wages on the coffee plantations are already at 35 to 40 quetzales (approximately $5) it is difficult to cut costs further These low coffee price and bottomed out salaries have decimated jobs for Guatemalans in the country’s highlands In El Nuevo Palmar Quetzaltenangoa municipality with one of the countrys highest rates of outward migration for families and unaccompanied children according to the US Customs and Border Patrol datathe lack of jobs and low coffee production salaries have crippled employment opportunities in the area "We may not exist next year" members of the municipalitys council joked darkly during the July monthly meeting "since everyone will be in the United States" In previous years young men from El Nuevo Palmar would often migrate to Guatemala City but the citys low wages and high crime levels have increasingly made the United States seem like the better option Residents now sell land or take out a loan to send family members to the United States where they believe they have a better chance of earning more money and staying safe Coffee producers are attempting to mitigate the low prices through a variety of strategies Larger plantations are dividing and selling off parts of the land as they attempt to wait out the price downturn; other producers are abandoning coffee and switching to other crops "The advice we are currently giving to coffee producers is to diversify" said Jaime Rolando Lopez Castillo the coordinator in the regional Coatepeque Quetzaltenango office of Guatemalas National Coffee Association (ANACAFE) "and thats into other crops beyond coffee" These replacement cropsincluding bananas plantains and macadamia nutsmay help tackle the employment crisis But they will not solve it entirely since these crops require fewer workers than coffee A final factor affecting the local economy is the Mexican pesos steady devaluation For decades Guatemalans from the highlands would travel to the southern Mexican state of Chiapas which borders Guatemala to work in coffee farms However as the peso weakened Guatemalans began to earn fewer quetzales when it was time to convert the earnings and bring home their salaries In 2000 for every 100 Mexican pesos that a Guatemalan worker earned he or she could convert it into roughly 80 quetzales; in 2010 these 100 pesos could only be converted to 60 quetzales; and today they total just 39 quetzales After factoring in transportation costs these annual trips to Chiapas are no longer always profitable for Guatemalans who live far away from the border In 2012 Cipriano Juventino Niz Chilel the coffee cooperative president from San Pablo had also joined previous waves of Guatemalan migrants to work in construction and landscaping in Phoenix Arizona The money he made during his three years in the United States now helps to tide his family over amid the low coffee prices But many of his neighbors and fellow coffee producers lack these savings For these residents of the Guatemala highlands losing their livelihood in the struggling coffee sector leaves them with little choice but to pack up and abandon their farms As the coffee industry slowly disappears without any alternative to take its place Guatemalans who have relied on this line of work for generations will continue to join migrants from across Central America who are heading north searching for a future beyond producing coffee Contact us at [email protected] IDEAS TIME Ideas

The Transport department has come out with a scheme,Our mission is to revive the dead with the fire of the soul. Henceboth Gandhi and Tagore saw Indias struggle for Swaraj as a movement for double freedomfreedom for India but also for Europe from the machinery of the Empire Satyagraha for Gandhi was part of a much wider notion of transformative politics and search for a just society for all It rested on the transformative self-practices which were experimented upon in the solitude of his ashrams and in conversation with the co-workers It was this inward gaze which made the act of cleansing the self possible before one attempted to cleanse the society of its structural and institutional injustices and inequities of power Satyagraha acquired legitimacy for the people and the rulers alike not only because of the personal conduct of the satyagrahis but also because of the wider moral ecology that it was a part of Satyagraha devoid of constructive worktransparent lives of the ashram community and quest for equality could only be an instrumentality Fast as a practice was for Gandhi an essentially personalspiritual practice of self-purification It was not mortification of the body It was the purifying nature of fasting that Gandhi wished to access It is by cleansing oneself that one cleanses those around one He was aware of the coercive nature of a public fast and constantly endeavoured to make his acts of fasting non-coercive He knew that he came closest to the purest fast only in May 1933 when he fasted for self-purification for 21 days It would not be idle moral speculation to suggest that the need for this self-purification occurred not only because of the conduct of the ashram community but his own conduct during the fast against the communal award where he was constantly reminded of his coercive power by Dr Ambedkar This is not to deny the legitimacy of the present protests by Anna Hazare and Baba Ramdevbut to suggest that they may not be Satyagraha as Gandhi envisioned and practised them They need not mirror Gandhiit is not their burden to do so It is necessary and legitimate to go beyond Gandhi in our relationship with those who govern us and in modes of reclaiming the public moral space because the nature of the state and the political realm has undergone large transformations in our times Butthe crucial question is that do they innovate upon the method and practice of public protest; do they add to the moral universedo they help us reclaim the notion of virtue in public life We must reflect on the fact that as a people so engaged with the political in our liveswe have shown remarkable lack of moral innovativeness The responsibility to be moral and righteous does not rest only upon the rulers but the people in equal measure Corruptiondespite its corrosive nature is only one aspect of moral conductwhat we require is a wider idea good conduct The movement has in some significant ways reclaimed the societal space in political lifewhich had become frayed The country would be truly beholden to the leaders of the present movement if they could through their practice enlarge the space for the moral in our political life; because that would create possibilities of inclusive society and just politics of the people The writer is an

hypocrisy Well may we extol the virtues of ahimsa but we have just surrendered to threats of violent rioting in Jaipur A Republic sixty-two years old is even now unsure of the freedoms it has bestowed upon its citizens and confused as to its identity During the mid 1950sI recall Pandit Nehru addressing a Conference of Newspaper Editors He advanced the interesting notion that Freedom of Speech and Expression had not been granted to good editors alone; it was most necessary for the bad editors too It would be easy to say that editors should use their freedoms responsibly and in national interest Of coursebad editors would do no such thing; they would print scurrilous articles But then who is to decide who is a good editor and who is bad If this is left to the governmentthen predictably only chamchas will survive as editors and the honest ones who spoke the truth to power would be hustled off to jail as bad editors misusing their freedoms Nehrus remarks are even more apt now than ever before I was struck by Justice Katju saying that Salman Rushdie was a poor and sub-standard writer who would have remained unknown except for his scurrilous book The Satanic Verses Thishe is quoted as saying is much more fundamental issue than merely banning him Of courseevery one is entitled to his own literary standards I hope the Booker Prize authorities take note of what Justice Katju has said and immediately withdraw the original Booker Prize for Midnights Children and its prize as Booker of Bookers of over 25 years But even a poor substandard writer deserves to be able to write and be read by such tasteless people who prefer him to better writers A writers freedom of expression and for all of us the freedom to read and write as we please is not granted on a quality adjusted basis This is not one of your IIT entrance exams where if you dont score 99 per centyou may as well jump in the lake The founding fathers of the Constitution of India gave all such freedoms without even setting a literacy test Of course the freedom to read implies the freedom not to read if you dont like someones writing It does not imply prohibition on all from reading something which a minority does not approve of Over the sixty-two yearsIndia has encouraged the articulation of several identities among its citizens This can only be a good thing But some identities especially religious ones are being privileged This is paradoxically because of the insistence that India is a secular state Indian secularism treats its citizens as belonging to certain identified religious communities and enjoins others to respect the sensitivities of each such community But then who is to decide which sensitivities are worthy of more respect and which less The taking of insults over the most trivial matterbe it a Bollywood film songor the dress worn by some group or a biography of some historical figure has become a large scale industry PILs are used as a way of blackmailing those who some people do not approve of Mob violence and political party muscle is enough for the State to abdicate its responsibility The worst effect of privileging religious or caste groups is that if I am born in one

series of setbacks over recent years experts said Apart from the Meteor weather satellite the rocket carried 18 payloads from institutions and companies in Canada the United States Japan Germany Sweden and Norway The Souyz-2 spacecraft with Meteor-M satellite and 18 additional small satellites launches from Russia’s new Vostochny cosmodrome near the town of Tsiolkovsky in Amur region Russia November 28 Reuters "During the first scheduled communication session with the space vehicle contact has not been established because it is not on its planned orbit" the Russian space agency Roscosmos said Roscosmos representatives declined to provide further comment saying only that specialists were looking to determine the cause of the problem But an industry source speaking to Interfax news agency chalked up the glitch to a human error saying that the rocket booster and the satellite had likely tumbled into the Atlantic Ocean "According to preliminary data there was a mistake in the flight task of the carrier rocket and the Frigate booster" the source was quoted as saying President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said he did not have immediate information about the cause of the accident Marking another milestone after the inaugural liftoff last year the Soyuz rocket carrying the weather satellite and other payloads took off at 2:41 pm (0541 GMT) from far eastern Russia Roscosmos said after the liftoff that "all the initial stages of the rocket’s flight went according to plan" National television broadcast live footage of the launch showing the rocket taking off into a grey sky in the Amur region near the Chinese border ‘Flight to Jupiter’ The first launch from Vostochny spaceport took place in April 2016 with Putin overseeing the takeoff It represented a major development for the country’s space sector with the new cosmodrome touted to mark a rebirth of an industry plagued by a string of embarrassments The first satellite launch had been scheduled for late 2015 but setbacks forced authorities to review the timetable The Kremlin’s goal is to ease Russia’s dependence on Baikonur in Kazakhstan a launchpad Moscow has been forced to rent since the collapse of the Soviet Union Russia is also home to the Plesetsk cosmodrome in the north which is used for satellite launches and missile testing But Vostochny like Baikonur is closer to the equator making launches cheaper and more energy-efficient The new cosmodrome currently has one launchpad for the Soyuz the only rocket being used for manned space flights Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin who was in Vostochny for the liftoff chaired a meeting Tuesday addressing the next construction phase to build a reinforced launchpad for the new Angara rocket "This is work in the interests of (reaching) Mars" Rogozin was quoted as saying by Russian news agencies "This is a flight to Jupiter and so on" The launch of the Angara which is being tested to replace the ageing Proton workhorse rockets is scheduled for 2021 Moscow hopes that the Angara will also play a role in helping create the infrastructure of a spaceport in lunar orbit as Russia and the United States agreed in September to cooperate on a NASA-led project to push further into the solar system The third launch from Vostochny is scheduled for December 22 ‘As good as Ladas’ Construction on the new spaceport began in 2012 but has been marred by labour disputes corruption scandals and delays Independent space expert Vadim Lukashevich said Russia’s once mighty space industry has been beset by numerous problems including lax quality control at production facilities and a bungled reform of the national space agency "This is stagnation There are no breakthroughs" he told AFP pointing out that Roscosmos was currently headed by Igor Komarov who formerly headed AvtoVAZ the maker of clunky Lada cars "Our rockets right now are as good as the Ladas" In October Russia successfully launched from Plesetsk a European satellite dedicated to monitoring the Earth’s atmosphere the protective layer that shields the planet from the sun’s radiation “Lagta hai kal raat party der tak chali” says Virender Sehwag in a Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) related commercial on TV “Chalo” he gives a call to the driver of the team bus — in mock annoyance — to leave for the ground as his overseas stars fail to report on time On 14 May at Pune after failing to make it to the playoffs of IPL 2017 he looked a tad more than annoyed at the overseas batsmen for letting KXIP down in a vital game They had had an outside chance of making it to the playoffs if they had won with Rising Pune Supergiant (RPS) Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and KXIP then finishing with 16 points each Seventy-three all out in 155 overs was no fighting total even on a sluggish track And rightly the Pune batsmen made light work of it chasing the score down in 12 overs thus taking second position on the league table behind the Mumbai Indians (MI) At a presser after the match Sehwag who is chief of cricket operations for KXIP castigated Glenn Maxwell along with Eoin Morgan Martin Guptill and Shaun Marsh for their meek surrender in a pressure game Not known to mince words he said that he had expected the more experienced foreign players to play for a major part of the 20 overs and not leave it to their inexperienced Indian counterparts to fight it out IPL’s Phase I which lasted 10 years ends this May Illustration courtesy Austin Coutinho Franchises don’t depend on overseas batsmen anymore The ‘Nawab of Najafgarh’ may have said this in a moment of despair but then he could have handled things a little more sensitively His overseas batsmen — including Hashim Amla (420 runs in 10 matches) Maxwell (310 runs in 14 matches) and Marsh (264 runs in 9 matches) — had served the team well till then The Indian batsmen closest to them in KXIP were Wriddhiman Saha (234 from 14 matches) Manan Vora (229 from 11 matches) and Axar Patel (227 from 14 matches) A glance at the performances of Indian batsmen in IPL 2017 from the four teams that qualified for the playoffs dispels the myth that franchises have to depend on their foreign recruits to win matches for them any longer MI’s top five batsmen for instance included Parthiv Patel Nitish Rana and Rohit Sharma along with Kieron Pollard and Jos Buttler For the Pune outfit Rahul Tripathi Ajinkya Rahane and Manoj Tiwary were up there with Steve Smith and Ben Stokes Gautam Gambhir Manish Pandey and Robin Uthappa have dominated the batting for KKR this season and for the Hyderabad franchise besides David Warner Moises Henriques and Kane Williamson Shikhar Dhawan and Yuvraj Singh have made big contributions Out of the 20 top performing batsmen in IPL 2017 before the playoffs 13 were Indians Therefore KXIP to start with had their priorities wrong at the auction table and could perhaps have done with better strategies at matches ‘See the ball hit the ball’ was Sehwag’s batting philosophy In that sense his batsmen did not do much wrong Virender Sehwag who has won the hearts of millions of fans with his witty tweets could perhaps have used a bit of humour to get his message across Overseas players — like it or lump it — are an essential ingredient of IPL’s business model and are one of the reasons for its huge success Now Sehwag has the right to express his frustration in public — whether in the heat of the moment or not What was uncalled for however was the reaction of his fans on social media Some tweeps even went to the extent of labelling foreign players in IPL as ‘mercenaries’ These extreme reactions reek of arrogance and that is one reason why players coaches and administrators have to be careful about what they say to their followers Sensitive times for Indian cricket These are sensitive times for Indian cricket The game is now run by an ad hoc committee on the recommendations of the Lodha Commission This happened following charges of large-scale corruption betting and match-fixing —besides power-games being played The BCCI bosses had money and power just the ingredients required for corruption and more importantly arrogance Indian cricket now needs to be handled more sympathetically in every way There can be no place for haughtiness in either its administration or in its conduct Take for instance the revenue-sharing fiasco at the ICC level: The cricket crazy country contributes around two-thirds of the revenues that the International Cricket Conference (ICC) generates Yet when it came to getting a bigger pie in the revenue-sharing model of ICC recently the proposal was shot down by 9 votes to 1 One may view those who ditched India on this issue as ‘green-eyed monsters’ but then the fact remains that a more sensitive handling of India’s concerns could have served BCCI’s cause better Is IPL being blackballed It was reported recently that Cricket Australia (CA) in all its wisdom has offered some of their best players bigger three-year contracts to woo them away from the IPL These players include Steve Smith David Warner Mitchell Starc Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins Former Australian skipper Michael Clarke however felt that it would be difficult for CA to entice players with bigger contracts because they enjoy the atmosphere at IPL matches But one never knows Australian players are a force to reckon with in IPL and an exodus for any reason could hurt the event massively There were 37 of them on the auctions list for IPL 2017 There are also three coaches from Down Under in the IPL and quite a few on the support staff of various franchises Cricketers Down Under are already at loggerheads with their association for fatter pay-packets and better terms of contract Darren Lehmann the Australian coach felt that the issues would soon be resolved and that the imbroglio would not affect the Ashes series this Australian summer During IPL 2017 a few players from England too believed that they would be better off playing on the County circuit rather than warming their butts on IPL benches Jason Roy one of the most exciting players in the Gujarat Lions’ line up preferred to leave early and play matches for Surrey Andrew Strauss England’s director of cricket considers managing the workload of England players was important because of the ensuing Champions Trophy followed by seven Tests and a busy winter in Australia and New Zealand The Pakistan cricket Board has made it clear that none of their players would participate in the IPL until Indo-Pak ties get better politically Of course franchises would prefer it that way because of issues related to holding matches in certain cities opposed to players from across the border Players from Australia England South Africa New Zealand the West Indies Sri Lanka and Bangladesh have brought in the overseas glamour to IPL The best international players taking part in the 45-day event has brought in the crowds the TV channels and with it the dough Just imagine an IPL season with only Indian players in the line ups and you will know why being sensitive to the needs of international cricket will be to India’s advantage Phase II of IPL will need re-engineering Phase I of IPL was a 10-year plan which ends this May The T20 event has become popular and grown beyond recognition during this decade because it was built around a well thought out business model It has also made most people involved with the game richer than they would ever have dreamed of during one lifetime While drawing up plans for the next five years of IPL – Phase II – the various powers that be will do well to plan ahead for all kinds of contingencies including a possible blackballing of the event by vested interests Overseas players involved in different franchises would naturally look for more participation and greater responsibility in future Rules possibly could be tweaked to make this possible IPL has unearthed some great domestic talent over the years but franchises would do well to work more at the grass root level to create and nurture talent A thought could also be given to the comforts that should be provided to the paying customer And finally those in charge of Indian cricket will also do well to rid Indian cricket of ‘arrogance’ and deal with day-to-day cricketing issues with a much greater sensitivity The author is a former fast

has no doubt Joe Root is the right man to captain England after overseeing his development with county side Yorkshire Root is currently England’s vice-captain and is the overwhelming favourite to replace Alastair Cook who resigned as Test skipper on Monday File picture of Joe Root AFP But fears have been expressed that captaincy will damage Root’s batting with former England off-spinner Graeme Swann insisting even the vice-captaincy has already been a burden as the 26-year-old is no longer "the cheeky dynamic joie de vivre-type player he was two or three years ago" Gillespie himself a former Australia fast bowler is convinced however that those fears are groundless after observing Root’s development during five years as Yorkshire coach "I understand the point he’s trying to make" said Gillespie who returned to Australia last year for family reasons told The Guardian "And no one wants Joe to lose his swagger or that inherent cheekiness but this is a guy who is maturing all the time He’s played 53 Tests he’s 26 years old and he is ready to go" added Gillespie whose successful time at Headingley included guiding Yorkshire to back-to-back County Championship titles "During my time in England I picked up a slight reluctance to give young guys leadership responsibility But looking at the set-up I don’t think there are any other candidates more qualified to take the role on than Joe Root" ‘Risk-taking a must’ While Root has only led Yorkshire in three Championship matches Gillespie said a brief stint as acting skipper against Surrey last year convinced him of his tactical acumen "Our captain Andrew Gale went off for a few overs to see the physio Joe took over and immediately brought himself on to bowl "That might seem like a bit of bravado but he simply weighed up the situation There were two left-handers (Kumar Sangakkara and Steven Davies) at the crease our main spinner Adil Rashid turns the ball into them so let’s try something different "He changed the field brought catchers in and lo and behold he picked up both wickets inside four overs "That was the kind of captaincy move that told me Joe won’t be a guy who lets the game meander He will be a leader who is always thinking two steps ahead Meanwhile England great Geoffrey Boycott renowned as a stubbornly defensive opening batsman told the Daily Telegraph that "Root has to be more adventurous than Alastair Cook" "Being careful is OK up to a point but imagination flair and taking a risk are absolute musts" added the Yorkshireman who was England captain briefly in 1978 Root played for the same Sheffield Collegiate club as Michael Vaughan who also had limited captaincy experience before becoming a successful England skipper "When Michael was appointed England captain he had not been captain of Yorkshire. Yet he was brilliant because he was innovative" said Boycott If Root were to succeed Cook he would be joining fellow contemporary star batsmen Virat Kohli (India) Steve Smith (Australia) and Kane Williamson (New Zealand) as a Test captain "It reminds me of the 1980s where we had the four great all-rounders – Ian Botham Richard Hadlee Kapil Dev and Imran Khan — all competing on the world stage" said Gillespie "This decade we’ve got four great batsmen in Joe Root Steve Smith Virat Kohli and Kane Williamson and with them now all leading their countries provided Root gets the job to me it seems a similarly exciting time to be a cricket fan read more

everyone tunes in to watch the final few minutes of a tight game Now the league is finally taking steps to make sure crunch time doesn’t get bogged down by commercial time The league’s Board of Governors unanimously approved some changes that will potentially eliminate four timeouts per game help speed up the final minutes of games and emphasize a timely resumption of play after halftime The

without action especially at the end of a game will further enhance the viewing experience for our fans” The league also changed the trade deadline moving it up so teams would not have their rosters significantly altered during the All-Star break This season’s deadline will be Feb 8 _ 10 days before the All-Star Game in Los Angeles Under the old system the deadline would have been Feb 22 when teams are getting ready to resume their seasons after the break If an All-Star is traded to the other conference before the game Silver said the league will review which side that player should play for on a case-by-case basis The NBA’s Competition Committee also considered making other tweaks _ such as the oft-criticized play where so many shooting fouls are now called on 3-point attempts often when the offending contact there seems to be initiated by the offensive player But on that front no changes are coming at this point In other news from the Board of Governors meeting and Silver’s news conference: One and done Silver said the NBA will take “a complete holistic look” at the one-and-done rule and how prepared players are going into their pro careers He said that Kobe Bryant spoke with teams on Tuesday about his development before entering the league straight out of high school “I don’t believe the system is working well for anyone” Silver said Tanking Silver addressed comments made by Dallas owner Mark Cuban that when the Mavericks were eliminated from playoff contention last season they tanked with hopes of improving their draft lottery odds “Yes it’s not what you want to hear as commissioner” Silver said The league and Cuban discussed it and moved on Silver said Luxury tax Silver said it’s too early to say if the NBA is concerned about the chance that 10 or more teams could be in the luxury tax for the 2018-19 season “These systems are so hard to calibrate As the money’s gotten bigger it’s gotten harder to project future cap and tax levels” Silver said “And I think those are all things that we continue to look at Our teams are smart They find ways to compete They work within the existing system but always with one eye on the next time we sit down at the bargaining table” Playoff seeding Silver also spoke about the perception of conference imbalance and the notion of seeding the top 16 teams for the playoffs with no limitations based on conferences He said a study two years ago showed it wouldn’t be ideal though Silver noted that it will likely be looked at again in the future “The only fair way to do it is to have a balanced schedule throughout the season” Silver said Expansion Silver reiterated that neither relocation nor expansion is not in the NBA’s plans right now and that there’s no focus on putting a team in Las Vegas anytime soon He did say that when the NBA looks to grow in the future and it will the league will look at the Las Vegas market _ which it has been fond of for years especially the role it plays in the summer league For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Mohamed Thaver | Mumbai | Published: February 8 2017 3:35 am Top News C for Kurla S for Karjat and N for Kasara These are the codes used for stations on the suburban railway network in Mumbai At first glance it would seem at odds with the fundamentals of the English language However dig a bit deeper and it makes sense While in some cases the alphabets relate to the name given to the station by the Britishers in other cases it is for the convenience of the railway staff This however at times leads to confusion for those using the railway network for the first time Watch What Else is Making News Railway officials have an explanation for this Since there are several railway station names beginning with the same alphabet they obviously had to find a way around the problem Kalyan for example starts with K and so does Kurla Khopoli Kasara and Karjat among others In certain cases like that of Khopoli they just added a P making it KP for Khopoli For Kurla which prima facie appears to have no connection to the alphabet C they went back to its original name “Kurla was earlier called Coorlie a name that was used by the British Hence we retained C as the code for Kurla” said A K Singh Public Relations Officer Central Railway Apart from Kurla even Vasai Road that is signified by “BS” on railway platform indicators also signifies the bygone British era when Vasai was called Bassein thereby giving it the “BS” code that is used today More interesting however is the case of Kasara and Karjat stations the codes for which are N and S respectively While most in the know believe the reason behind it is that since Kasara goes northwards from Kalyan it acquired the code N and Karjat going southwards acquiring the initial S However this version too is not fully accurate Railway historian Rajendra Aklekar says while initially this may have been the reason behind the peculiar codes over a period of time some changes took place “There would be massive confusion in the control tower manning the locals entering CST Since a lot of long-distance trains also come to the city purely giving it codes based on which direction it came from was becoming problematic Hence to change this and ensure that the two words do not sound same phonetically which south and north did to an extent they came up with Narayan for N and Shankar for S Today if you go to a control tower at CST instead of referring to trains as Karjat and Kasara they would term them as a Shankar slow or a Narayan fast” he says While these names made life easier for railway officials it turned out to be the bane of visitors to the city They would reach CST look at the indicators and go blank wondering what codes like C stood for Till a few years ago apart from the indicators that had these codes the signage that the trains themselves had at its two ends was in codes as against the full station names Later to help those using the trains for the first time it was decided that at least the trains would carry the full names of the railway stations en route The platform indicators however owing to its limited slots would have to continue carrying these codes instead of the entire station names Have a comment or suggestion for Life On The Local Write to mumbainewsline @expressindiacom with subject line: Life On The

you instantly find the trappings of a star in these roles Related News Tubelight trailer exploits Salman Khan’s larger-than-life off-screen image Salman’s innocent man-with-a-golden-heart shtick seems to be easily picked from his other films including Bajrangi Bhaijaan and placed in a different scenario There are scenes that seem too familiar irrespective of the backdrop of the movie Salman is seen surrounded by people in the town They love and adore him He is a nice guy with good intentions and can do no harm to anyone Sounds familiar right Replace that little girl from Bajrangi Bhaijaan with Salman’s real brother Sohail Khan here and the actor has got somebody to take care of Instead of ‘Selfie le le’ now tap your foot on ‘Sajan Radio’ If you were charmed by Bajrangi’s staunch honesty now get ready to see his ‘Lakshman’ act of a loving caring brother But it’s not the similarities that bother you it’s something else No matter whether you like the trailer or not you can’t shrug off this nagging feeling – that you are coerced to buy a particular Salman Khan’s image – this nice guy-who-can-do-no-harm and who can also give you some tips on family love The trailer begins on a promising note with shots of blue skies and soldiers prepping up for the war- until you see the superstar himself and people cheering for him Salman’s unusual name: Bajrangi Bhaijaan wasn’t just a coincidence in Kabir Khan’s last film One would want to ask why Kabir chose Lakshman-Bharat for Salman-Sohail’s characters Their names could have been anything Do makers already want you to buy their sibling love so that they don’t the have to pu an effort in building characters from scratch It seems film wants you to buy everything on its face value Or it can be an effort to utilise Salman’s pan-India popularity Remember how Aamir Khan and Salman Khan played Ram-Bharat in a short scene during Andaz Apna Apna It was used as an irony on the never-dying love between two brothers There is no harm in using an actor’s stardom to promote a film But what happens when you use a film to promote or sell a star’s image Is Tubelight a tailor-made film to suit Salman Khan’s personality and lure his thousands of fans If that’s precisely the case then it undermines the whole purpose of cinema If you happen to be a Salman Khan fan lucky you But what about the rest of us who want to watch cinema before getting hooked to a star’s charisma When Salman Khan plays a Bajrangi or Sultan you instantly find the trappings of a star in these roles It’s may be because our ageing superstars don’t want to experiment with different characters Maybe that’s why Tubelight trailer has a little glimpse of Chinese actor Zhu Zhu It’s all about Salman and his love for other people Also Read:Salman Khan on Tubelight trailer: I don’t like watching it as I see Om Puri in it and it killsme But doesn’t the same thing disappoint a cinemagoer from watching the film Tubelight can be an entirely new experience
