Women’s World Cup: Virender Sehwag doffs his hat to Mithali Raj’s women after crushing win over Pakistan

first_imgSpinner Ekta Bisht wreaked havoc as India thrashed arch-rival Pakistan by 95 runs in their ICC Women’s World Cup encounter at Derby on Sunday. Defending a lowly target of 170 runs, the Indian eves were spectacular with the ball as they didn’t allow their arch-rival to claim a historic win and bowled out Pakistan for just 74 runs in 38.1 overs. Ekta started casting her magic from the very start and was absolutely lethal, giving nothing away and picking wickets right from the beginning.Captain Sana Mir was the lone Pakistan batter who fought soulfully till the very end. However, her 29 runs off 73 balls couldn’t help her team register their first win of the tournament.Ekta was the pick of the Indian bowlers as she picked up five wickets for just 18 runs in her allotted 10 overs. She was well supported by Mansi Joshi (2/9), Jhulan Goswami (1/12), Deepti Sharma (1/21) and Harmanpreet Kaur (1/6).Earlier, the Mithali Raj-led side was done by some fine bowling performance by Pakistan as they registered their lowest total of the tournament.This is how twitter reacted to India’s crushing victory:Congratulations @BCCIWomen on a fabulous victory against Pakistan in the ICC #WWC17 .Hats off on such a spirited effort. #INDvPAK- Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) July 2, 2017What an incredible victory by @BCCIWomen .

La Liga: Suarez, Messi take Barcelona closer to title, Benzema brace sinks Eibar

first_imgBarcelona closed in on the La Liga title after beating 10-man Atletico Madrid 2-0 in Saturday’s top-of-the-table showdown at the Nou Camp as late strikes by Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi gave the Catalans an 11-point lead at the top of the table.Atletico began brightly but their gameplan went out of the window when Diego Costa was shown a straight red card in the 28th minute for a verbal tirade at referee Jesus Gil Manzano.Atletico produced a gutsy second-half display, expertly shackling Barca, but the Catalans finally found a way past the visitors’ outstanding goalkeeper Jan Oblak with a superb curling shot from Suarez in the 85th minute.Moments later Messi sealed victory and quite probably the league title with an irresistibly cool finish into the net and Barca’s fans jubilantly chanted “champions”, crowing at their surely unassailable lead at the top with seven games remaining.Atletico midfielder Koke conceded that Barca had wrapped up the title but questioned the decision to send Costa off.”Barca are practically champions. It was a very strange game, we were doing so well until the red card but all the small details went their way,” Koke told reporters.”Whenever we come here something strange happens, we’ve had a lot of red cards against Barca and not all of them have been fair. When you have 10 men against one of the best teams in the world it’s normal that it’s a struggle.”Suarez highlighted his side’s character for winning such a difficult game so soon after their gruelling 4-4 draw against Villarreal in midweek.advertisement”This was another game which shows just how hard it is to win the league so we deserve lot more credit for what we’re achieving,” Suarez said.”We’ve now got a very big advantage over Atletico. There are still some games left but we took two steps towards winning the league today.”Karim Benzema scored twice as Real Madrid came from behind to beat Eibar 2-1 at home on Saturday in Zinedine Zidane’s 100th La Liga game in charge of the club.Benzema had an early strike disallowed at a barely half-full Santiago Bernabeu for offside and the visitors took a surprise lead in the 39th minute thanks to a cool finish from forward Marc Cardona, who is on loan from Barcelona.Eibar had humbled Madrid 3-0 back in November and looked to be on course to do the double on the deposed European champions until Benzema headed in an equaliser in the 59th minute, shortly after being denied again by the linesman’s flag.Benzema netted another header in the 81st minute to put Madrid in front and the Frenchman passed up two opportunities to clinch a hat-trick in the closing stages, missing the target and then hitting the post in stoppage time.Madrid moved on to 60 points after 31 games thanks to the victory but remain third in the standings, 10 points behind leaders Barcelona who host nearest challengers Atletico Madrid in a top-of-the-table clash later on Saturday.Also Watch:last_img read more

Indian archers forced to skip World Cup after flight delay

first_imgIn a major embarrassment for Indian archery, the senior recurve and compound teams could not board the flight to Medellin in Colombia and were forced to pull out of the season-opening stage one of the World Cup beginning on Monday.The 23-member contingent was slated to board Royal Dutch Airlines KLM 872 from Delhi to Amsterdam early Saturday morning but due to “operational issues” the flight was delayed by two hours 53 minutes, that shattered their onward journey plan to Medellin.According to well-placed sources, there was a delay in the sanction for the trip from the Sports Authority of India as the flight booking was done pretty late and close to the event schedule.”Pakistan has opened up airspace but all the west-bound flights are still taking longer. They (ministry) could have planned accordingly and made the bookings well in advance,” the source said on condition of anonymity.As per the itinerary accessed by PTI, the contingent had a one hour and 25 minutes lay-off at the Amsterdam airport for their onward journey to Bogota and then finally to Medellin where they were slated to reach at 8pm local time on Saturday.According to the WhatsApp Customer Care of KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, the delay was caused due to “operation issues”. The Indian team had no alternate plans except to skip the event.”There was no alternate flights available for such a big contingent. We tried different options but it was not possible to reach before Monday. Now we have to return to our camp in Pune,” a dejected women’s coach Purnima Mahato told PTI.advertisementThe miss means Deepika Kumari will not be able to defend her individual title that she had won at the stage one of the World Cup in 2018 which was held in Salt Lake City.The newly-elected Archery Association of India had done the selection well in advance, announcing the A and B teams in March on the sidelines of the senior Nationals in Cuttack.SAI’s executive director (Teams) Radhica Sreeman, who was the in-charge of the travel plan and logistics, did not respond when contacted.The president of the Archery Association of India BVP Rao also could not be reached.The Teams:Recurve Men’s: Tarundeep Rai, Atanu Das, Pravin Jhadhav, Atul Verma.Recurve Women’s: Deepika Kumari, Laishram Bombayla Devi, Komalika Bari, Madhu Vaidwan.Coaches: Purnima Mahato, MB Gurung; Support Staff: Krishna Nandu Das, Oshin Sharma.Compound Men’s: Abhishek Verma, Rajat Chauhan, Bhagwan Das, Aman Saini.Compound Women’s: Jyothi Surekha Vennam, Muskan Kirar, Raj Kaur, Swati Dhudwal.Coaches: Surinder Singh, Titomas Sharma; Masseur: Pinki.Also Read | Depleted India hope for substantial medals at Asian Athletics Championships 2019Also See:last_img read more

Budget Bulletin Families

first_imgFOCUS ON CHILD CARENova Scotia remains committed to providing quality child care. The province will provide a credit to parents to offset provincial taxes on the full value of the federal Universal Child Care Benefit. Nova Scotia families have a new 10-year child-care plan that will add more day-care spaces, increase funding for low-income families, and provide greater support for those working in the child-care sector. The province is committing $130 million to this 10-year plan to provide more flexibility for parents and better training for child-care workers particularly in rural areas. The province will provide ongoing additional funding of $4.7 million a year to child care in Nova Scotia once the federal funds are spent. PROTECTING HOMES, NEIGHBOURSThe province will invest $850,000 to help families test their wells and septic systems. The Environmental Home Assessment Program will help homeowners determine whether there are problems with wells and septic systems. The program will provide participants with home water and wastewater assessment results, a $50 rebate on septic pumping (if not pumped within the last three years), a water quality sampling kit, water-saving devices, samples of environmentally friendly cleaners (manufactured in Nova Scotia), an oil tank check up, and an oil tank gauge protector. The program is expected to benefit 400 homeowners not on public water and wastewater systems during this fiscal year and expand to 1,000 homeowners in the next. An additional $1.7 million will be invested in 2007-08. PROTECTING CONSUMERSConsumer protection officers will increase the number of inspections of businesses holding consumers’ funds in trust accounts, including pre-paid funeral and cemetery services, collection agencies, and payday lender activities. Additional consumer protection officers — at a cost of $95,000 — will be hired to increase inspections and investigations to better protect Nova Scotians in the marketplace. MAKING SMART ENERGY CHOICESThe province will continue its $10 million investment in the Smart Energy Choices program in 2006-07. This program helps educate families about the benefits of energy efficiency, which is the best protection against rising energy costs. PROVINCIAL PARKSThe provincial park system offers a range of options and a wealth of outdoor experiences for families, residents, and visitors. The province will invest $750,000 to improve infrastructure in provincial parks. The investment in annual park maintenance and restoration projects is being increased by $500,000 annually. STUDYING THE IMPACT OF GAMINGProblem gambling has a devastating effect on families. To better assess and understand the social and economic impacts of gaming in Nova Scotia, the province will invest $250,000 on an independent study. The study fulfils a commitment of the provincial Gaming Strategy. -30- Note: For further 2006-07 budget information, see the Department of Finance website at www.gov.ns.ca/financelast_img read more

Kerala to object SLBCs recovery procedures on farmer loans

first_imgThiruvananthapuram: An advertisement from the State Level Banker’s Committee (SLBC) that appeared in leading dailies in Kerala on Sunday has upset the government as it stated that recovery procedures on farmers loans will go ahead on defaulters. Speaking to the media here, State Finance Minister Thomas Issac said this issue will be taken up strongly at the upcoming SLBC meeting to be held here on June 25. “They have written off Rs 5 lakh crore of outstanding amount of the corporates, but have come out with rules against the farmers and are threatening with recovery procedures. It’s not right to say that only paddy cultivation is classified under agricultural loans. If agricultural land means only paddy fields, then in Kerala it’s just 15 per cent. We will raise this issue at the SLBC meeting very strongly,” said Issac. Also Read – Cong may promise farm loan waiver in Haryana In 2019 alone, about two dozen farmers committed suicide after the banks strictly went ahead with recovery procedures even after the government had announced that due to the piquant situations faced by the state in terms of the worst ever floods last year, all loans taken by the farmers would get a moratorium till December 31 2019. At the SLBC Sub Committee on Natural Calamity (2018), one of the decisions taken was with regard to providing moratorium on agricultural loans and loans to those borrowers whose income is largely from agriculture and allied activities. The committee clarified that banks may permit moratorium to those loans pertaining to flood affected villages notified by the government, subject to the permission from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). Also Read – Modi formed OBC commission which earlier govts didn’t do: Shah However, in the advertisement the SLBC said the RBI guidelines have to be followed by all banks and the moratorium ends on July 31. State Agricultural Minister V.S. Sunil Kumar said the state government will take up this issue with the Centre. “We will meet the RBI officials on this and at Tuesday’s meeting of SLBC, this is going to be taken up seriously. They now say that the moratorium ends on July 31, which is wrong. In fact, banks do have the right to extend the moratorium,” said Kumar.last_img read more

Le butin de la Sécurité sociale 3 millions deuros dabus en HauteGaronne

first_imgLe butin de la Sécurité sociale : 3 millions d’euros d’abus en Haute-GaronneFrance – En 2009, la Caisse primaire d’assurance maladie (Cpam) a multiplié les contrôles afin de limiter la fraude, dont le chiffre est en augmentation. Pour le seul département de la Haute-Garonne, la Cpam a détecté 3 millions d’euros d’indus.Dans ce département, plus de 2,8 milliards d’euros sont consacrés aux prestations de santé. La lutte contre la fraude et les abus s’avère donc primordiale : “Nous sommes garants de la bonne utilisation des fonds de la collectivité” explique Roselyne Jaume, chargée du contrôle des professionnels de santé. L’ensemble des salariés serait ainsi apte à détecter d’éventuelles incohérences dans les dossiers et le travail effectué dans le cadre du Codaf (Comité opérationnel départemental anti-fraudes). Créé en 2008, ce comité resserre encore les mailles du filet.À lire aussiEn France, les étudiants ont du mal à se soignerLe Codaf a ainsi permis de détecter, en 2009, 59 fraudes pour un montant total de 370.980 € pour le seul département de la Haute-Garonne. En 2010, la Cpam compte mettre l’accent sur le contrôle des arrêts de travail de courte durée et le respect des horaires de sortie. Véronique Fréchin, responsable de la cellule fraude à la Cpam 31, explique : “Nos équipes sont de plus en plus réactives. Et la sanction, c’est quand même une retenue de 35% sur les indemnités journalières perçues”.Du côté des professionnels de santé, le contrôle reste encore souvent mal accepté. 419.703 euros d’indus sont pourtant à imputer aux prescriptions fictives, au non codage des actes médicaux ou encore aux facturations multiples. Néanmoins, il ne faut pas se fier à ces seuls chiffres car de nombreux médecins, proches de leurs patients et plus conscients de la réalité du terrain, adaptent leurs prescriptions en fonction de la situation des malades.Le 22 septembre 2010 à 12:26 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Empreinte digitale de nouvelles techniques pour révéler les traces cachées

first_imgEmpreinte digitale : de nouvelles techniques pour révéler les traces cachéesGrâce à de nouveaux instruments de diffusion neutronique, les équipes de police scientifique devraient pouvoir augmenter la proportion des identifications d’empreintes digitales utilisables devant un tribunal qui ne sont que de 10% actuellement.Les chercheurs de l’Université de Leicester en collaboration ave l’ILL (Institut Laue Langevin, un centre de recherche international situé à Grenoble) et la source pulsée de neutrons et de Muons ISIS ont pu mettre au point de nouveaux instruments de diffusion neutronique. Ceux-ci devraient permettre d’identifier de façon beaucoup plus fiable les empreintes digitales latentes (cachées) laissées sur des armes de crimes tels que des couteaux, des armes à feux, des cartouches ou d’autres surfaces métalliques.La nouvelle méthode utilise des films fluorescents à couleur variable qui détecte les dépôts de sueur et d’huiles naturelles que laisse un doigt lorsqu’il entre en contact avec une surface. On peut notamment s’en rendre compte sur son clavier d’ordinateur à la lumière rasante. Ces dépôts forment en effet un dessin assez proche des crêtes et sillons des doigts qu’il est possible de rapprocher directement des empreintes digitales. A tel point même, que la probabilité pour que deux empreintes soient identiques est d’une sur 64 milliards.Un négatif de l’empreinteJusqu’alors, seules 10% des traces digitales relevées sur des scènes de crime étaient d’une qualité suffisante pour être utilisées devant un tribunal. En effet, les techniques classiques étaient limitées puisqu’elles dépendaient de nombreux facteurs (préservation des traces qui vieillissent vite, variations environnementales). Mais tous ces problèmes n’existent plus avec la nouvelle méthode qui s’appuie sur les caractéristiques d’isolant électrique que présentent les empreintes digitales. Autrement dit, les empreintes empêchent le courant électrique utilisé de passer ce qui permet de les analyser. En se servant de cette propriété, les chercheurs ont pensé exploiter les surfaces non colorées pour créer un négatif de l’empreinte. Il leur aura suffit d’utiliser des polymères électrochromes, c’est-à-dire capables de changer de couleur lorsqu’ils sont soumis à une tension électrique pour y parvenir. Le résultat est extrêmement précis car même des quantités infimes de résidus isolants (d’une épaisseur de quelques nanomètres à peine) sont capables d’empêcher les polymères de se déposer sur une surface métallique, indique le communiqué de l’ILL.Une méthode à tester en conditions réellesÀ lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?La technique a même pu être encore améliorée par l’équipe du Professeur Robert Hillman en intégrant dans le film électroactif coloré des molécules fluorophores qui réémettent la lumière d’une troisième couleur quand elles sont exposées à la lumière. Avec cette combinaison de couleurs couplée à l’électricité, le contraste obtenu est de meilleure qualité encore.Toutefois, le Professeur Hillman rappelle que ces techniques ont montré leur efficacité en laboratoire. La prochaine étape consistera à appliquer la méthode à des empreintes digitales exposées à des conditions réelles, notamment l’eau, la chaleur d’un incendie ou encore des produits de nettoyage par exemple.Le 6 juillet 2013 à 11:05 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Cowboy Bebop Is Getting A Live Action TV Series

first_img John Cho Headlines Live-Action ‘Cowboy Bebop’ on NetflixThe Best Dubbed Anime Available Stay on target No matter how big of an anime fan you are, chances are you’ve heard of Cowboy Bebop, or you’ve watched it because it’s a classic. Widely considered one of the best out there, the 1998 Japanese series has been inspiring newcomers to the genre for years. And now it’s getting a live action television adaptation by Tomorrow Studios, a new partnership between ITV Studios and Marty Adelstein.That name might not mean that much to you, but he’s a producer and actor known for his work on Prison Break, which he served as executive producer on. He’s worked on several series, to that end, so he’s got plenty of experience under his belt. The live action series will, in fact, be executive produced by Sunset Inc., the same studio that handled the original animated series, as well as by a group called Midnight Radio: Josh Appelbaum, Andre Named, Jeff Pinkner, and Scott Rosenberg.Chris Yost is being tasked with writing the adaptation. Yost has worked on several properties for Marvel and other comic book-related series. This all sounds like a lot of capable people, especially with a comic book writer on board with experience writing several different characters and stories.Unfortunately, those are the only real facts we have at the moment regarding what might happen with the series. There’s no casting info right now, but let’s hope there’s at the very least some sort of attempt at finding the best people for the roles. And there’s also the hope that it retains its humor and snarkiness and doesn’t attempt to turn into some sort of dark look at bounty hunting in 2071. Spike Spiegel has a certain cool that could be ruined very quickly if too heavy of a hand is taken with the adaptation. We’ll have to wait and see what happens.last_img read more

MovieBob Reviews AVENGERS INFINITY WAR SPOILER EDITION

first_img WARNING: As the title indicates, this second review of Avengers: Infinity War includes SPOILERS. The spoiler-free review can be viewed here.Didn’t you already review this last week?I did, but we’re doing it again with SPOILERS this time. Not much comes out this week because no one wants to release major movies in the direct aftermath of new Marvel movies.What exactly is your industry going to cover when they eventually stop making these?“Stopping” seems somewhat presumptuous, given that we’re dealing with Disney productions. I’m sure someone was saying “They’ve got to run out of fairytales to make cartoons out of” back in the 50s, and yet…Point taken. So I guess we don’t need to rehash the plot of this?Probably not.Can we talk about all the dead Avengers?Yeah, that’s quite a body count both “universe-wide” and in “people we give a damn about” terms, huh? I imagine a bunch of them are going to come back and a lot of this is going to be undone in general. Basically because the whole Infinity Gauntlet “thing” is all about magical doodads that can undo all of this (plus a bunch of the “dead” people are already working on sequels for their own franchises so…)Do you think that sucks some of the impact out of it?I get why a lot of people feel that way, but it’s not where my head is at this point. I mean, isn’t this just the rules of fiction, period, Marvel or otherwise? I’m not trying to be dismissive here – if this doesn’t work for you because the omnipresence of the metanarrative lessens the overall dramatic tension, that’s valid. I just wonder, why we’re inclined to apply that standard to fictional works that actualize deus ex machina into a tangible device but less so when it’s equally as present in every other work of fiction that doesn’t have a specific Infinity Gauntlet or Master Wand or Reset Button or whatever to hang it on.I’m not sure I follow?Think of it like this: When Tom Holland reports for work on Spider-Man 2 (or whatever they end up calling it) in however many weeks despite Peter Parker having died in Infinity War. It’s not some combination of the Reality Stone, Time Stone and whatever other sundry magicks in Avengers 4 that’s going to have made that resurrection possible. It’s the fact that Spider-Man is not a real person, none of this is real and thus anything the writers want to have happened to them at any time can happen regardless of whether there’s a tool to cause it or rule to allow it already built into the lore. And that’s true of every other work of fiction – heck, not even just (pure) fiction: “Hitler didn’t really die that way” didn’t stop Tarantino from ending Inglorious Basterds the way he wanted to.So why give such a positive review if you’re acknowledging the biggest stuff in it doesn’t matter?“Matter” is a relative term here, I feel. It’s all fiction, and absurdly high-concept (read: kind of silly) fiction, at that. So everything is execution dependent: Spider-Man and Gamora’s deaths (to name just two of many) aren’t affecting because I genuinely think I’ll never see them again, they’re affecting because Tom Holland and Zoe Saldana (and their respective scene-partners Robert Downey Jr. and Josh Brolin) are giving excellent, emotionally resonant performances in those moments that really get to you. Or, at least, got to me.No, yeah, I get it – that was tough to watch. Related: Were you psyched when The Red Skull showed up??What do you think?Thought so. Were you sold on Thanos now that the motivation and backstory are out in full?Yeah, I think Thanos is the main reason it all works – it better be, since he’s basically the main character. Plus, I’ve long been a fan of Marvel’s savagely shameless deployment of the “Make the most obvious criticism of your movie something the bad guy says and/or believes in so people feel like jerks bringing it up” trope.Wait, how does Thanos do…His whole genocidal philosophy is motivated by “There are too many people in this Universe.”… …oh wow.I know, right? Anyway, “the villain thinks he’s the hero” is an old angle and Marvel actually goes there a lot, but usually it’s guys like Killmonger (or Magneto) who actually have a righteous point. Thanos is an irredeemable genocidal MANIAC… and not only is he sure that his universe-wide Malthusian overpopulation solution is right. He’s already fully accepted that he’s not just the hero but the kind of suffering, righteous “lonely martyr” hero we’ve all been inculcated to identify with (in part by the last decade or so of post-Dark Knight superhero movies!). And he’s totally made peace with no one ever recognizing, rewarding or even thanking him for it – he doesn’t even want power or leadership. That’s a terrifying idea, and it’s fascinating to not only watch Brolin play him as this totally self-deluded sociopath but also for the movie to very cannily give basically a “hero movie” story of his own in between all the Avengers/Guardians/etc. team-up stuff.What didn’t work so well?I like the banter but Thor, Rocket and Groot’s story didn’t really feel as resonant as the others, in my opinion. Also, I agree the Russo Brothers are probably the best pure action-directors Marvel has on the payroll right now. I also find myself wishing either they or the producers would insist on featuring more extras, shooting more “coverage” and writing in more asides with tertiary characters to help with the scope and add tension by constantly reminding us that this is about more than just the 18 or 20 people from the posters.Would that really change things that much?I mean, half the cast turning to dust is creepy and shockingly bold as endings to these go – but imagine how much harder it would’ve hit to cut away and see that same shit happening to, say, Aunt May or Luis or Pepper or Hawkeye’s kids or… even just random people who have NO IDEA what’s happening and are just horrified, just sitting down to dinner or walking dogs or pushing baby carriages – that woulda been terrifying… maybe too much so for this kind of movie, even.But you stick by the original review and rating, overall?I do. It’s a hell of a good time, very nearly as good as these sorts of movies get. Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Former Inter footballer wants Godin in this team

first_imgFor ex-Nerazzurri defender Daniele Adani, Diego Godin would be a massive help for the Inter Milan title objectives.According to former Internazionale Milan defender Daniele Adani, Atletico Madrid’s Diego Godin would be a perfect player for his team.“If you are the captain of Uruguay, it means that you have mind, heart and superior spirit and this describes the great leadership that he has as a man first and as a player in the field,” Adani was quoted by Calcio Mercato.“Second, the characteristics: he can be stopper and free together because he fits anyone who plays alongside him, it can be any type of defender.”Romelu Lukaku, Serie A, Inter MilanCapello calls Lukaku “a modern striker” Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 The former Italian manager believes Romelu Lukaku is perfectly suited for Antonio Conte’s Internazionale Milan in the Serie A.“He knows how to be free when his teammate is more of a scorer, he knows how to be the scorer when he has someone like Gonzalo Rodriguez, who is more elegant, he knows how to be an ancient and modern defender.”“The third thing is that he hates defeat. This is why he goes into the penalty area at critical moments and how many challenges he has decided in this way,” Adani explained.“He almost brought a Champions League to Atletico Madrid as well. The completeness of the boy with technical-human characteristics will surely help Inter to work in the department and to acquire the winning mentality that he has ingrained.”last_img read more
