first_imgIn reply to India’s first innings total of 224, England are 84 for no loss with skipper Andrew Strauss and Alastair Cook in the middle at stumps on Day One of the third Test at Edgbaston in Birmingham on Wednesday. Score | PhotosRead Day 2 match reportRead Day 3 match report – Cook scores a doubleRead Day 4 match reportEarlier put in to bat, India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni scored a resolute 77 helping India to 224 after being pushed to the wall with 92/4 on board.England got rid of India opener Virender Sehwag on the first ball of the match. A short ball of Stuart Broad rubbed past Sehwag’s gloves and wicketkeeper Matt Prior did the rest behind the stumps. India were down to 8/1 early in the innings.Post the first ball loss, opener Gautam Gambhir and Rahul Dravid, who opened for India in the Trent Bridge Test, batted with resolve. The two had put on 59 runs for the second wicket when Tim Bresnan decided to break their stand.Bresnan, who had been sticking to the off-stump line, brought the ball in and it did the damage, uprooting Gambhir’s stumps when he was on 38.Amazing! Sachin played that with virtually no foot movementMaster Blaster Sachin Tendulkar, who was looking iffy during his innings paid the price. He poked into a swinging ball off Stuart Broad and James Anderson made no mistake in the slips cordon. He fell for one and India were down to 60/3.Next it was the turn of the Mr Dependable to walk off the pitch. A cracking delivery from Bresnan rammed into Dravid’s stumps when he was on 22. India were down to 75/4 as Dravid fell on the last ball before lunch.advertisementImmediately into the second session, James Anderson struck again and Suresh Raina was seen walking back towards the pavilion on four.India were down to 92/5 with little hope for a revival. But the misery for India was far from over as soon Laxman too departed on a Bresnan ball. He tried to pull the ball past the boundary, but ended up giving a catch to Broad at long leg. He fell for 30 and India lost their sixth wicket on 100.Tail-ender Amit Mishra faced just 13 balls before giving up his wicket to Stuart Broad with keeper Prior performing the final honours behind the stumps. And India were reduced to 111/7.Finally, India skipper MS Dhoni and lower-order batsman Praveen Kumar revived the innings for the visitors. The two batted with caution thwarting the England attack.Just when the opposition bowlers were trying to wrap up the India innings, skipper Dhoni got into the zone and started dealing in boundaries and over-the-fence shots, delaying England plans.But, England bowlers went ahead with their Plan B and got rid of Dhoni’s partner Praveen Kumar and once again India were on the mat, though this time the situation was a little better as the score was 195/8. Praveen and Dhoni put on 84 runs for the 8th wicket with Dhoni leading the charge.Dhoni gradually upped the tempo while Ishant Sharma, more famous for his exploits with the ball, did what the top-order batsmen failed to do – hold the bat straight. At tea India were 205/8 with Dhoni batting on 61 and Ishant trying hard to stay in the middle.Post tea, however, the things turned sour for India and it was no other than Stuart Broad, who got rid of the man England wanted back in the pavilion.Dhoni wanted to whack Broad past the boundary, but failed and an edge got carried to his counterpart in the England camp, Andrew Strauss. Dhoni fell for 77 and India lost their ninth wicket on 224.Soon India innings came to an end on 224 all out when last man Ishant fell to Andreson.In reply, England got off to a good start with skipper Andrew Strauss and Alastair Cook taking the steam off India bowlers. Strauss raced to an easy half-century and the two were in the middle when stumps were drawn on 84 for no loss.last_img read more

Moss ‘misguided’ before Kane penalty award

first_imgPremier League Moss ‘misguided’ in TV question before awarding Kane contentious penalty Jamie Smith 02:39 2/6/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments() Jonathan Moss Getty Images Premier League Liverpool v Tottenham Hotspur Harry Kane Jürgen Klopp Liverpool Tottenham Hotspur After a number of controversial calls during Sunday’s Premier League between Liverpool and Tottenham at Anfield, PGMOL have backed the match officials Referee Jon Moss admits he was “misguided” to ask for television footage while awarding Tottenham a penalty at Liverpool, but Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) has backed his ultimate decision.A thrilling 2-2 draw featured a pair of contentious penalties in the final 10 minutes of the game, Harry Kane missing after he was adjudged to have been fouled by Loris Karius, before the England striker made amends in the 95th minute after Erik Lamela was felled by Virgil van Dijk.Van Dijk accused the Spurs duo of diving after the game, while Jurgen Klopp also vented frustration at the officiating and suggested the officials apologised to him at full-time for getting the first decision wrong, with the Reds believing there should have been an offside flag during the build-up to Kane going down under Karius’ challenge.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player In a lengthy delay, Moss appeared to ask fourth official Martin Atkinson, “Have we got anything from the TV?”. Officials are not permitted to use television footage to review decisions in games where a Video Assistant Referee (VAR) is not in use.PGMOL has insisted that there was no wrongdoing in making the decision, affirming it to be the correct one.A statement read: “[Moss] asked a question to his fourth official Martin Atkinson and acknowledges that referencing ‘TV’ was misguided. Atkinson did not reply to the question and so had no involvement in the decision.”Having properly reflected on the questions asked, Jon knew that a Liverpool player, now identified as [Dejan] Lovren, had played the ball and that no offside offence had occurred. He then awarded the penalty.”For the avoidance of doubt, Atkinson did not view a television monitor and did not relay any information to the on-field officials.”Backing Moss, PGMOL added: “In real time this was a difficult series of decisions which the match officials judged correctly in recognising that Kane was not offside, as Lovren had deliberately played the ball, and he was fouled for the award of the penalty kick.” Subscribe to Goal’s Liverpool Correspondent Neil Jones’ weekly email bringing you the best Liverpool FC writing from around the weblast_img read more

New Case in Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes

first_img Another case was added to the province’s Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes program today, July 10.

Although the case remains unsolved, the investigation is still ongoing. “Investigators believe there are people who know what happened to Tanya Brooks and we are imploring them to come forward,” said Halifax Regional Police Chief Frank Beazley. “We are also asking anyone who may have seen or heard anything out of the ordinary around St. Patrick’s-Alexandra School after 9 p.m. on May 10 to come forward. “Ms. Brooks was someone’s daughter, mother and sister and we require the public’s assistance in the investigation into her untimely death.” At the time of her death, Ms. Brooks was 36-years old and a mother of five children.

Blistering WI thrash Pakistan by 7 wkts

first_imgNottingham: West Indies kicked-off its World Cup 2019 campaign on an impressive note after thrashing Pakistan by seven wickets at Trent Bridge, here on Friday. After bundling out the Green Brigade on a paltry 105 runs, the Caribbean opener and self-proclaimed Universe Boss Chris Gayle smashed a 34-ball half century while unbeaten Nicholas Pooran contributed with 19-ball 34 runs to ensure their side reach home safely. Chasing the meagre target, Windies openers — Gayle and Shai Hope (11 off 17) started on a cautious note, putting 32 runs in the first four overs. Just when the partnership looked developing, Mohammad Amir gave Pakistan some respite as he packed back Hope in the fifth over when the Windies were at 36 runs. Also Read – We don’t ask for kind of tracks we get: Bowling coach ArunIncidentally, Gayle broke the record for most sixes hit in the history of the World Cup. Gayle, with 40 sixes, now has the record for the most World Cup sixes. AB de Villiers, with 37 sixes, is second. While Gayle continued to rotate the strike and kept the scoreboard ticking, Amir once again came with a breakthrough as he dismissed new comer Darren Bravo (0), leaving West Indies at 46/2. Pooran and Gayle were then involved in a 31-run partnership, inching Windies closer towards the target however, Amir cut short the latter’s stay in the 11th over. With West Indies needing another 29 runs for victory, Pooran and Shimron Hetmyer (7 not out off 8) denied the Green Brigade any further onslaughts as the duo comfortably steered West Indies to an easy win in 13.4 overs. Also Read – Bastian Schweinsteiger announces retirement, could join Germany set-upEarlier, overcast conditions and some quality bowlers in the team saw West Indies skipper Jason Holder have no hesitation in winning the toss and bowling first and the result was Pakistan folding up for just 105 as Oshane Thomas (4/27) and Holder (3/42) ran through the Pakistan batting line-up. All-rounder Andre Russell played perfect second fiddle to the frontline pacers as he finished with figures of 2/4 from his three overs. This is Pakistan’s second lowest total in the World Cup. Taking strike in overcast conditions, Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed had spoken about the need to play out the first few overs cautiously. But that wasn’t to be as Imam-ul-Haq (2) was dismissed by Sheldon Cottrell in the third over of the innings. Brief Scores: WI 108/3 in 13.4 overs (Gayle 50, Pooran 34 not out; Mohammad Amir 3/26) beat Pak 105 all out (Babar Azam 22; Thomas 4/27, Holder 3/42) by 7 wickets.last_img read more

Ohio State bullpen blows 40 lead to Iowa at Big Ten tournament

OSU junior catcher Jalen Washington (2) swings at a ball during a game against Bethune-Cookman at Bill Davis Stadium on April 1. Credit: Nathan Rubinstein | Lantern photographerAfter being postponed the night before, the fourth-seeded Ohio State baseball team took the field against the No. 8 seed Iowa Hawkeyes trying to move two games closer to a Big Ten championship.Greg Beals’ team had been riding high coming into Friday winning 13 of its last 15 games. Senior starting pitcher John Havird retired Hawkeye after Hawkeye while the offense dug in and capitalized on nearly every presented opportunity. OSU tacked on two runs in the sixth, and sophomore right fielder Tre’ Gantt singled to straight-away center in the top of the ninth to pad the cushion for OSU, extending the lead to 4-0 over Iowa.However, the smooth-sailing through eight and one-half innings quickly capsized the Buckeyes in the bottom half of the ninth.After receiving eight scoreless innings from senior starter John Havird, OSU called upon sophomore reliever Seth Kinker to finish the game. Kinker, who entered the day with an ERA of 1.33, struggled right out of the gate as he faced the top of the Iowa order.The Hawkeyes strung together four consecutive hits to lead off the inning to cut the deficit to 4-1. Kinker forced senior catcher Daniel Moriel to ground into a double play which did allow one extra run to score. Sophomore first baseman Austin Guzzo singled up the middle to drive in a run and draw Iowa within one. With a runner on first and the score now 4-3, the Buckeyes called on senior left-handed reliever Michael Horejsei to come in and get the final out of the game. The first batter he faced, senior pinch-hitter Jimmy Frankos, was hit by a pitch, putting the winning run on first base. Redshirt sophomore closer Yianni Pavlopoulos was the third reliever of the inning brought in to try and nail down this game. With runners on first and second, Pavlopoulos surrendered a single to redshirt junior Devin Pickett that tied the game up at four.Following a scoreless tenth inning from the Buckeyes, Iowa would load the bases on the strength of a four-pitch walk, a fielder’s choice bunt, and a hit-by-pitch. With a 1-1 count, junior infielder Mason McCoy singled to right center field to send the Hawkeyes home as winners, 5-4 in extras.For many, this harkened back to the demoralizing loss in the first round of last year’s Big Ten tournament with OSU pitted against Iowa. With two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, then OSU’s senior closer Trace Dempsey walked a batter and surrendered a walk-off two-run home run to Iowa’s senior infielder Nick Day. OSU was eliminated from the tournament on the next day against No. 6 seed Indiana.Against Iowa, John Havird gave up only two hits with no walks and four strikeouts in eight scoreless frames while Iowa senior starting pitcher Tyler Peyton struck out five and issued no walks over seven innings of five hit, three run baseball. Peyton struck out five and walked none, but hit two batters with pitches. Neither starter factored into the decision.The Buckeyes will hope to stave off elimination and continue their run in this year’s Big Ten tournament where they will take on the fifth-seeded Michigan Wolverines at 10 p.m. on Friday. OSU defeated the Wolverines 8-3 on Wednesday night. read more

Anglos Coarse Particle Flotation tech scaling up with new 500 th unit

first_imgPart of its FutureSmart Mining™ approach to innovation and sustainability, coarse particle flotation (CPF) technology Anglo American says allows it to coarsen grind size while maintaining recoveries – thereby reducing the energy required to grind ore, as well as reducing water intensity by more than 20%. Where CPF is combined with dry-disposal technology, the company is targeting a reduction in water intensity of more than 50%. CPF is currently being tested at several of Anglo’s mining sites around the world. A 500 t/h unit, the biggest of its kind, is currently under construction at El Soldado copper mine in Chile and is due to come online in the second half of 2019. The coarse particle flotation process is already being used at Las Tórtolas, part of the Los Bronces copper mine, also in Chile.CPF is part of a wider Anglo strategy called Coarse Particle Recovery (CPR), designed to follow advanced fragmentation and gangue rejection technologies. It combines CPF and dry stacking technologies. “Essentially, it allows us to float particles at sizes two to three times larger than normal. This has two main benefits. Firstly we use less energy and can therefore increase our production rates; and secondly, we are able to easily extract water from the process leaving a waste stream that is dry and stackable.”The upper size limit of coarse particle flotation has been a long-standing challenge in the industry, as the value of metal and minerals lost to tailings is often in particles too coarse to float (coarse particles are generally larger than 250 microns or 0.25mm, where, for example, 4% of Cu recovery can be lost). “But regardless of how coarse one is able to process particles there has been, and always will be, a portion of ultra-fine particles that require processing. We have partnered with major chemical companies and are experimenting with new techniques to recover this previously unrecoverable metal.”last_img read more

Rotunda Hospital warns patients about graphic abortion posters outside

first_img By Paul Hosford Rotunda Hospital warns patients about graphic abortion posters outside The posters are believed to belong to the Irish Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform (ICBR). Image: Wednesday 13 Jun 2018, 3:52 PM Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article DUBLIN’S ROTUNDA HOSPITAL has warned patients attending today that there is graphic imagery outside.The posters are believed to belong to the Irish Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform (ICBR), who have previously displayed graphic imagery showing foetuses outside the National Maternity Hospital at Holles Street, the Rotunda Hospital and the Coombe Hospital.In a tweet this afternoon, the hospital said:“To anyone entering or leaving the Hospital, a warning that there is an anti-abortion group adjacent to the front entrance, displaying posters that may be distressing. Gardai have been notified. Please be mindful in the area.”Gardaí have been asked if they will attend the scene.The group – which is opposed to abortion – became notorious during the referendum on the Eighth Amendment by holding large graphic signs around Dublin that claim to show aborted foetuses.Last month Jean-Simonis Engela from the ICBR told that criticism of his group’s actions was “disingenuous virtue signalling” and that the public “has a right to see” what an aborted foetus looks like.Engela rejected criticism of holding the posters outside maternity hospitals specifically, and said that people often thank them for being there.The group’s actions were condemned by both the official Yes and No campaigns.

Bangladesh’s foreign ministry forwarded a list of more than 22,000 refugees to Myanmar for verification and Naypyidaw cleared 3,450 individuals for “return”. Advertise With Us But on Wednesday, several Rohingya refugees whose names were listed said that they did not want to return unless their safety was ensured and they were granted citizenship. “It is not safe to return to Myanmar,” one of them, Nur Islam, said. Officials from the UN and Bangladesh’s refugee commission have also been interviewing Rohingya families in the settlements to find out if they wanted to return. “We have yet to get consent from any refugee family,” a UN official said Wednesday. Rohingya community leader Jafar Alam said that the refugees had been gripped by fear since authorities announced the fresh repatriation process. They also feared being sent to camps for internally displaced people (IDP) if they went back to Myanmar. Bangladesh refugee commissioner Mohammad Abul Kalam said they were “fully prepared” for the repatriation with security being tightened across the refugee settlements to prevent any violence or protests. Officials said they would wait for a few more hours before deciding whether to postpone the repatriation move. In New York, UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said Wednesday that repatriations had to be “voluntary”. “Any return should be voluntary and sustainable and in safety and in dignity to their place of origin and choice,” Dujarric told reporters. The UN Security Council met behind closed doors on the issue on Wednesday. Sunday will mark the second anniversary of the crackdown that sparked the mass exodus to the Bangladesh camps. The Rohingya are not recognised as an official minority by the Myanmar government, which considers them Bengali interlopers despite many families having lived in Rakhine for generations.last_img read more

Market watch Sensex slips 57 points on weak global cues gold prices

first_imgThe S&P BSE Sensex fell 57 points on Tuesday tracking weak global markets and a sharp fall in crude oil prices.The Sensex closed at 26,846 points, down 0.21%, while the 50-share Nifty fell by 11 points, or 0.15%, to end at 8,131.The positive industrial production data for August failed to cheer the markets, as concerns over a spike in inflation in September dampened sentiments.”The Indian equity market closed with marginal losses ignoring impressive Industrial Production data which grew by 6.4% for the month of August. Sentiment took a hit after retail inflation, based on CPI for September increased to 4.41%, from 3.74% the earlier month, on account of higher food prices,” said Amar Ambani, Head of Research, IIFL.Further, the markets were also under pressure from weak global markets. An official data revealed China’s imports fell sharply by 20% to a seven-month low in September against 13.8% decline in August, indicating the country’s still suffers from weak domestic demand.”While the headlines have focused on the weak value data, the pick-up in China’s industrial import volumes suggests that ongoing fiscal stimulus, notably infrastructure spending, and earlier price falls are boosting commodity demand. We expect import volumes to remain strong in coming months, which should help prices to recover further,” said Capital Economics in a note.Domestic stock prices were also pressurized by a 5% decline in global crude oil prices after a report from the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) showed that the oil cartel continued to increase its oil output.”OPEC envisages a significantly higher call on OPEC next year. It looks set to be a good 500,000 barrels per day higher than previously anticipated and to increase to 30.8 million barrels per day. The main reason for this is lower than expected non-OPEC production, which is set to decline by 130,000 barrels per day next year. OPEC’s strategy of crowding suppliers with higher production costs out of the market appears to be working, in other words,” said Commerzbank Corporates & Markets. Among the BSE sectoral indices, the IT index was the biggest loser, while Reality ended as the top gainer.Infosys shares extended their losses for the second consecutive session, ending 2.1% down after the company reduced its dollar revenue guidance for the current financial year. HCL Tech stock prices were down nearly 3%.Reliance Capital (up 5.4%), Reliance Infra (up 2.1%), BHEL (up 1.4%), Maruti Suzuki (up 1%) and ITC (up 1%) were the top gainers among the index stocks.ONGC (down 3.6%), Hindalco (down 2.8%), Tata Steel (down 2.3%), Infosys and Bharti Airtel (down 1.2%) were the top losers among Sensex stocks.On the commodities front, gold prices fell by Rs 70 to Rs 26,800 per ten grams, tracking weakness in metal prices in the overseas markets. Silver prices dropped by Rs 200 to Rs 36,800 per kg.The rupee fell by 44 paise to 65.19 against the US dollar on the back of increased dollar demand from banks and imports.last_img read more

Empowering women to rewrite social norms

first_imgMedha Mukherjee, a young entrepreneur started, with the aim to provide a platform to women and address their issues. She started the project four years back and hasn’t looked back since then. When asked how and why she became an entrepreneur, Medha said, “Entrepreneurial hunger is a desire to change something and create an impact. That craze for changing something will drag you to build anything that drives that change.””A friend and I opened a lemonade shop in our neighborhood when we were just 12. At that point, we were just filling up a need gap in the market. But concurrently the entrepreneur in me was born. Although I worked in a multinational for short time, I was longing to start something of my own,” she added. Why She replied, “I saw women in my family and around not doing enough to realise their full potential. Their minds were stymied by the pressures of a patriarchal society. As a result, they were conditioned to look for different excuses. But when they saw women from their generation doing well, it started creating a positive impact on them.” Medha, who initially started it as a blog, decided to launch a full-fledged website after she was introduced to ‘word press’. She began to write about all kinds of women and their lives. “Soon I found that my audience wanted to read about women who were achievers, as it inspired them. So I started communicating with famous and successful women; it could be professionals, authors, actors, requesting them to mentor my readers,” mentioned the young entrepreneur. Talking about the challenges she faced during the journey, Medha replied with an example, “The impact of patriarchal superiority was so strong that when I went to Bangalore to pitch for my first investment, I was asked ‘who handles your team’. They couldn’t believe that I, a woman could manage a team.” She always felt the need for a media platform for women and hence decided to work on this project. Now, they will be holding their first event in March in Mumbai, in association with ‘coworks’– a platform which facilitates startups. Medha is happy that finally there is no stopping, funds have come and the website has started making small money too. A known name among young entrepreneur, Medha believes that as long as the purpose for what you are working for is sorted, it is easier to work for yourself than for someone else.last_img read more
