Justin Kay, Brian Harris and Curt Martin also did stints at the front, with polesitter Kay holding off high side challenges from Tommy Elston and leading the first nine of 30 laps.  The $2,000 checkers were Ryan’s IMCA Late Model tour career third, and first since August of 2016. Cole took runner-up honors in his first career series start while point leader Andy Eckrich was third. Matt Ryan made his move to the front following a late restart to win Sunday’s Deery Brothers Sum­mer Series main event at Quad City Speedway.

Martin appeared to survive a rough restart on lap 21 but soon had a flat of his own, falling back as Cole, Eckrich and Ryan motored by.  Cole’s turn in the lead lasted seven laps. Ryan found the higher side to his liking following that late restart and charged ahead. Rookie contender Lake Knutti and Joel Callahan were fourth and fifth, re­spectively.  Ryan’s most recent series win had come at Dubuque Speedway. He was also the winner of the $250 Sunoco Race Fuels feature qualifier drawing at East Moline.center_img Ryan passed Brandt Cole following a late restart and led the last two circuits in winning Sunday’s Deery Brothers Summer Series main event at Quad City Speedway.

Men’s hockey: Badgers reportedly set to hire Tony Granato as new head coach

first_imgUniversity of Wisconsin men’s hockey team is set to name a new head coach in Detroit Red Wings assistant coach, Tony Granato.The announcement was made Sunday by John Buccigross at ESPN, a little more than a week after long time head coach Mike Eaves was fired. Granato has spent the last fourteen seasons jumping around coaching jobs in the NHL, serving as head coach of the Colorado Avalanche and an assistant with the Detroit Red Wings and Pittsburgh Penguins.The 51-year-old Illinois native played under historic coach Jeff Sauer from 1983-87 at Wisconsin and finished his career as a two-time second-team All-American and a finalist for the Hobey Baker Memorial Award in his senior season. Granato sits fourth on UW’s all time scoring list and third in goals as a member of the UW Athletic Hall of Fame.The Badger legend followed up his impressive college stats with a successful 18-year NHL playing career with the New York Rangers, Los Angeles Kings and San Jose Sharks before retiring in 2001.Granato takes over a Wisconsin program that is in a slump, finishing last in the Big Ten for two years in a row and totaling only twelve wins in the same time span. With four graduating seniors in 2016, not a single player left on the Badgers has any NCAA tournament experience and the thirteen rising freshmen leaves Granato with his work cut out for him.Also reportedly helping Granato in the rebuilding effort are his brother, Don, and former Badger Mark Osiecki as assistants, according to USCHO.com.Don Granato is joining the staff after a stint as the head coach of the USA Hockey National Development Program while Osiecki returns to Madison after a short berth as the head coach at Ohio State. Osiecki was a six year assistant under Eaves and provides some much needed experience for an especially young roster.After drastic drops in attendance at the Kohl Center in the last few seasons, the three hires should bring new attention to a Badger program in much need of a rebirth. Granato and the new staff should be a fresh change for a young class of promising underclassmen.The future seems bright in a new era for Wisconsin men’s hockey.last_img read more

Facebook complies with Lega-5Star’s Italian blanket ban

first_img TVBET passes GLI test for five live games in Malta and Italy August 25, 2020 Facebook has become the latest US tech giant to confirm that it will comply with the approved mandate of the new Italian coalition government’s ‘Dignity Decree’.Updating its Italian advertising terms and conditions, Facebook states that it will no longer accept adverts, promotions, pages, Instagram accounts and apps that promote or facilitate online gambling.“Pursuant to recent legislative developments, our company is now revoking that approval in respect of the Italian market and will only allow national deferred prize-drawing lotteries to run gambling advertising in Italy”, details Facebook in its advertising update.The stark reality of governance by the populist Lega-5Star coalition is dawning on Italian betting incumbents, as last week Google announced that it would conform to the government’s blanket ban on gambling advertising, removing all Italian betting content from its search listings.Italian MPs continue to debate the policy framework of the Dignity Decree, which is likely to gain parliamentary approval on 10 August.Yesterday, European industry trade body the EGBA, stated that it supported Italian betting stakeholders and online gambling association LOGiCO challenge of the advertising and sponsorship ban.The EGBA and LOGiCO issued a joint-letter to Italian Parliament stating that the directive would be counterproductive in its objectives to minimise gambling-related harms, putting Italian consumers at risk and growing the nation’s black market for betting services.

Matthew Imi: Sky Racing – The first month and adapting to industry challenges

first_img UK racing remains hopeful for crowd pilot events August 14, 2020 PM casts doubt over imminent resumption for professional sport May 11, 2020 Submit Share Ascot adds three-year extension to Sky Sports Racing deal August 14, 2020 Related Articles StumbleUpon On 1 January of this year, Sky UK launched its new channel, Sky Racing , which took Sky’s dedicated sports channel tally up to 11, has been broadcasting race fixtures from both the UK and around the world.Matthew Imi, CEO of Sky RacingIt has been headed by the long term At the Races chief executive, Matthew Imi. SBC caught up with Imi to discuss how Sky Racing’s first month has faired, and how the industry will adapt to and overcome challenges in the next 12 months.SBC: Has your first month of Sky Racing gone as expected? What have been your highlights so far?MI: We’re delighted with how the launch and first month has gone, particularly after a lot of hard work at Sky and from the production team. Having said that, this is just the beginning and it’s very important to us that we continue to grow and evolve from here, rolling out new production tools, improving graphics, integrating new functionality etc. Highlights so far include some of the steps we’ve taken to improve the viewer experience and the positive feedback we’ve had on that is hugely rewarding. Along with the additional cameras, everything being fully HD and super slo-mo shots that have all been so well received, we’ve also made an important commitment to have at least one presenter at every UK fixture. That gives the viewer much more insight and access to what’s going on at the track. We also have time to hear much more from our presenters on course who do an excellent job and now deliver more in-depth analysis and reporting than ever. We have welcomed some new faces to the team and we are very pleased with how that’s worked complementing our strong exiting talent pool.SBC: Can you tell us some of the ways in which racing viewers have benefited from Sky’s expansive sports coverage this year?MI: We’re still really in the early stages of what we aim to do with our presentation and technology enhancements but already racing fans will have seen a number of improvements on Sky Sports Racing. One of our goals was to improve the standard of all our races, not just the major meetings. All our coverage is now in HD and supported by a number of new camera positions. We have two live cameras positioned on the finishing straight, allowing for both close and wide shots; we have super slow-motion capabilities on the close shot which allows for immediate analysis on race finishes; and there is a side-on camera to the stalls at our flat meetings to show who gets away effectively. For the bigger meetings, fans will also be able to enjoy our drone cameras and tracking vehicles. The drone allows for sections of the race to be captured which aren’t available to other cameras and is a superb addition to our coverage.SBC: Are you able to go into greater detail about how Sky Racing can bring the sport to a new audience in 2019?MI: Sky Sports’ broadcast and digital platforms have huge reach and an engaged audience. Our ability to cross-promote our domestic and international racing fixtures to sports fans is a huge opportunity for not only us as a channel but the sport itself. Sky Sports News is a particularly important asset and one which will help reach sports fans with all the stories racing has to offer as well as deliver more reports, build up and previews for our live racing coverage. Our challenge at that point is to attract and hold onto the newcomers, while also delivering exceptional coverage to our long-term viewers. Coverage doesn’t have to be binary in terms of its approach to expert viewers or newcomers. There is a chord to be struck which combines making the programming entertaining and engaging on a wider level while also providing the level of insight that viewers have grown to expect from us and from Sky Sports. SBC: Could you reveal some of the challenges that are involved with attaining racing media rights, compared to other sports?MI: As a media rights partner, we know we have a proposition which many racecourses find attractive. From March 1st this year, Ascot, Chester and Bangor on Dee will join Sky Sports Racing. They know we can deliver first class coverage of all their race days with the production standards associated with Sky Sports. They know we can deliver valuable cross promotion from Sky Sports News and other areas as well as the largest digital audience in racing. And they know they can expect a fully transparent and collaborative partnership tailored to their needs.I’m not sure racing’s media rights are much more complicated or challenging than other sports but it is true that racing rights in the UK are owned by a number of groups and factions and the importance of betting to racing media rights is unlike other sports.SBC: How big an issue is media piracy in racing and how do you plan on combating it?MI: Our primary responsibility is to protect our channel picture signal and this is tightly controlled through contracted distribution agreements with major networks and platforms on an encrypted channel basis, notably with Sky and Virgin Media. These are companies that deal with the threat of piracy and are well used to doing so. The risk from piracy involving live filming at a racecourse venue is a matter for the racecourses themselves although we will offer support to any of our racecourse partners as required. Anecdotally, we don’t believe the specific problem of drone filming is as severe as may have been reported.SBC: The racing industry as a whole has some significant challenges to face this year, especially with Brexit looming which is causing mass-uncertainty. How do you plan to address these obstacles?MI: All our rights agreements are in place and we don’t expect Brexit to affect us to any great degree from a broadcast perspective. Racing itself faces more complex issues, particularly in the case of a ‘No Deal’ Brexit. The Tripartite agreement between Britain, Ireland and France has allowed horses to move freely between the three countries since the 1960s and is now part of EU law. Obviously this will cease to exist in the case of ‘No Deal’ which is likely to make the movement of horses between the three countries, and there is a lot of it, potentially problematic. I’m very hopeful a solution will be found though. It would be a great shame if we reached the point of horses not lining up due to border crossing issues post-Brexit. Sharelast_img read more

Premier League looks to broadcast every behind-closed-door fixture

first_imgShare StumbleUpon EFL announces that all non-Sky Sports fixtures will be available to stream August 27, 2020 Share Submit All behind-closed-door Premier League matches are set to be broadcast following the FA’s confirmation that the traditional Saturday 3pm TV blackout will be lifted for the start of the 2020/21 campaign.Due to this announcement, all top flight games can be negotiated to broadcasters to be aired live until crowds start to come back to stadiums. The top-tier ban will also allow clubs to provide season ticket holders with match-day codes to stream home matches, similarly to last season. According to The Times, the Premier League was considering maintaining its original contracts with BT Sport and Sky Sports, which would result in 40 per cent of the games this season not being televised. However, over fears of fans illegally streaming fixtures, the tournament organisers have opted to negotiate with broadcasters over airing all the fixtures.  This isn’t the first time that the 3pm blackout has been voided with the rule also being lifted during the Premier League’s Project Restart last campaign. As a result all remaining Premier League games were aired on a variety of channels and platforms including the BBC and Twitch alongside BT Sport and Sky Sports.Unlike the 2019/20 campaign, the Premier League will not ask broadcasters to make some games free-to-air, which eventually resulted in Sky Sports airing fixtures on Pick.The newspaper has also reported that the 3pm blackout is only being lifted temporarily and will be imposed again once fans return to grounds. It has already been confirmed that the EFL will allow non-Sky Sports televised matches to be streamed by its clubs, following an agreement with the broadcaster.As a result of its partnership, EFL fans can pay £10 per match to see their team’s home fixtures. Alternatively season ticket holders will gain access to every home game whilst crowds are banned from stadiums.

Dodgers and Angels notes: Dodgers pitching prospect Ross Stripling injures elbow

first_imgGLENDALE, Ariz. – Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling was scheduled to undergo an contrast MRI exam Friday afternoon to determine the extent of an injury to his right elbow. The 24-year-old is hoping to avoid a diagnosis of a torn ligament that would require season-ending Tommy John surgery.Dodgers head athletic trainer Stan Conte “did all the tests and said that (the injury) points to the ligament,” Stripling said. “We’ll get an MRI just as a precautionary, see how it goes.” Stripling said he first experienced pain in his elbow seven days ago while throwing live batting practice to Dodgers hitters. He pitched another inning after suffering the injury. After four days’ rest, Stripling pitched two innings against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday and finally reported the injury Thursday.“I probably should’ve gone in sooner once I immediately felt something, but I didn’t,” he said. “I just didn’t want to be the guy who went in the training room all the time in his first camp.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Greinke was removed two batters into his Cactus League debut Thursday when he experienced a cramping sensation pushing off the mound. He played catch from flat ground Friday with Conte, but not without discomfort.“Obviously, it puts being built up to 90 pitches (by the end of spring training) in jeopardy,” Mattingly said, “but I don’t think it necessarily rules him out of Australia at this point.”Along with Clayton Kershaw, Hyun-Jin Ryu and Dan Haren, Greinke is one of four pitchers the Dodgers are preparing to pitch in their regular-season-opening series in Sydney March 22-23.Outfielder Matt Kemp had an MRI on his surgically repaired left ankle performed Thursday, but Mattingly said the results would not be known until today or Sunday.Pitcher Chad Billingsley will throw curveballs off a mound today for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery last April.Dodgers blank SoxOutfield prospect Joc Pederson hit a two-run home run in the seventh inning off Chicago White Sox right-hander Jake Petricka in the Dodgers’ 5-0 win at Camelback Ranch.Ryu, making his first Cactus League start of 2014, did not allow a run in two innings. Brian Wilson, Kenley Jansen, Chris Perez, J.P. Howell, Jamey Wright and Matt Magill finished the game with seven combined shutout innings. The White Sox were limited to three hits and three walks.Trout, Halos win bigMike Trout hit a grand slam off Chicago Cubs right-hander James McDonald and the Angels won their Cactus League opener 15-3 at Tempe Diablo Stadium. Two days after signing a record-setting $1 million contract, Trout finished 2 for 3 with five RBIs.J.B. Shuck and Jett Bandy also homered in the Angels’ 15-hit attack. Shuck and Chris Iannetta finished 2 for 3 with three RBIs. Jered Weaver allowed one hit and struck out one in three scoreless innings.AlsoAngels closer Ernesto Frieri missed the game to be with his wife Carolina for the birth of their second daughter, Veronica. … Haren will start for the Dodgers today against the Milwaukee Brewers in Maryvale and Josh Beckett will start Sunday against the San Diego Padres at Camelback Ranch. … Dodgers broadcaster Jaime Jarrin served as the Grand Marshal of the NASCAR Mexico Toyota Series race Friday. Partner Pepe Yniguez served as the Honorary Starter. … The Dodgers signed two right-handed pitchers from their open tryout Thursday: Agoura Hills native Danny Keller and Steve Edlefsen, a veteran of 27 major-league games with the San Francisco Giants.center_img A fifth-round selection in the 2012 draft, Stripling is considered one of the Dodgers’ top pitching prospects. He posted a 2.78 ERA average in Double-A last season and was invited to major-league spring training for the first time this year.Stripling has been shut down from throwing for at least several days.“Hopefully, it’s a situation that puts him a little bit behind schedule,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said.Injury updatesZack Greinke (strained right calf muscle) will not throw his normal bullpen session today and will probably not make his next scheduled start Tuesday.last_img read more

NASCAR at California: Odds, prediction, sleepers, drivers to watch for Auto Club 400

first_imgBut Kyle Larson will try to do it. The 26-year-old driver out of California has a lot of recent success in Fontana with a win in 2017 and second-place finishes in 2014 and 2018. He’ll have his work cut out for him on the two-mile track as tire wear matters there and he had issues with that in Atlanta, but his track record speaks for itself.Larson competes every week and loves to hang around the top 10 at the Auto Club. We’re picking him to take the win despite the fact Busch has won four of his last five races counting the Xfinity and Truck Series.The Auto Club 400 can be seen Sunday at 3:30 p.m. ET on FOX.What are the betting odds for the Auto Club 400?Kyle Busch 9/2Kevin Harvick 9/2Brad Keselowski 6/1Martin Truex Jr. 6/1Kyle Larson 6/1Joey Logano 6/1Denny Hamlin 18/1Ryan Blaney 18/1Aric Almirola 18/1Erik Jones 20/1Kurt Busch 20/1Chase Elliott 25/1Clint Bowyer 25/1Ricky Stenhouse Jr. 50/1Jimmie Johnson 50/1Alex Bowman 50/1Austin Dillon 80/1Daniel Suarez 80/1William Byron 100/1Paul Menard 100/1Ryan Newman 100/1Matt DiBenedetto 200/1Daniel Hemric 200/1Chris Buescher 200/1Ryan Preece 300/1Ty Dillon 500/1Darrell “Bubba” Wallace Jr. 500/1Michael McDowell 2000/1Matt Tifft 5000/1Field (all others) 500/1Which NASCAR drivers should you watch at the Auto Club 400?Brad Keselowski already has a win under his belt at a tire wear track in Atlanta and his last four races in Fontana only offer encouragement for his success this weekend. Keselowski has finished fourth, second, ninth and first in his last four trips to the track. Can anyone stop Kyle Busch?It will be tough this weekend, especially in Fontana, Calif. where Busch has three career wins at Auto Club Speedway and finishes in the top 10 70 percent of the time. Add that to a win last week in Phoenix, and top 10s in every single one of his starts this year and the driver will be incredibly tough to beat on Sunday. Joey Logano earned a win at Las Vegas beating out Keselowski and Logano may be competing with him for a win again this week. Logano has top-7 finishes in five of his last six races at Fontana and top 5’s in each of his last three.Kurt Busch’s recent track record at Auto Club Speedway isn’t encouraging as he has finished 14th, 24th and 30th in his last three attempts there. But before those runs he finished outside the top 9 just twice in nine races and in the top five four times. If that driver shows up on Sunday he can get a win.One sleeper for the Auto Club 400Austin Dillon hasn’t had the best success at Auto Club Speedway, but he has always been on the cusp of it. The 28-year-old has never finished better than 10th in Fontana, but he has finished 11th or better in three of his five NASCAR races there. He has to crack the top 9 eventually.last_img read more

Red Cross lectures on disaster plans

first_imgQUARTZ HILL – Preparedness is essential before a disaster strikes, said Fran Stewart, executive director of the Antelope Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross. Speaking last week to the Quartz Hill Woman’s Club in the Lane Park Recreation Center, Stewart outlined strategies for survival, with a modicum of comfort. “We don’t know what to expect from Mother Nature except one thing: that she’s here with us and she’s in charge,” she said. “She can do whatever she wants to, but we can be prepared.” Her advice was to have on hand enough food and water to last a week. The Red Cross used to recommend three days’ worth, she said. Stewart said it is necessary to think about the possibility of no power to operate electronic gates or garage doors and make allowances for that. Fire is another thing that we may be faced with here, she said, and she advised everyone to have a fire extinguisher. She praised the residents of the Antelope Valley. “The generosity of the people here is overwhelming,” she said. “In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, our people have donated, just to our chapter alone, close to $300,000 to the victims. That’s a lot of money. We don’t keep any of it. It all goes to the victims. Any money we receive is used for whatever the donors want it used for.” Questioned about how one can be sure a donation stays in the Antelope Valley, Stewart said all it takes is to designate, in writing, where the money should go. QUARTZ HILL – Quartz Hill Woman’s Club will host a holiday boutique sale from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday at the Mayflower Gardens retirement community, on 65th Street West at Avenue L-12. Menus for the week at the senior life nutrition sites in Lancaster and Palmdale have been announced. All meals include bread and margarine and coffee, tea or milk for a suggested donation of $2. Monday: Chili egg puff, chili beans, spinach, vegetable soup, creamy coleslaw, apple. Tuesday: Baked ziti, mixed vegetables, garden salad, apple juice, vanilla ice cream. Wednesday: Cranberry chicken, wild rice, juice, green beans, carrot salad, gelatin with fruit. Thursday: Roast turkey sandwich, mashed potatoes, stewed tomatoes, tossed salad, cheesecake. Friday: VETERANS DAY. This column disseminates news of interest to seniors of all ages.

Then it will take another three days to get the big trucks rolling to bring new supplies to the markets,” she said. People should also make provisions for the pets, too. “The animals are important. They’re part of the family and people aren’t going to want anything to happen to their pets,” she said. She suggested that instead of storing slippers under your bed, you take an old pair of shoes and tape them to the underside of the bed so that all you have to do is reach under to retrieve them. “In an earthquake, for example, you may have broken glass on the floor, and if you only wear slippers you run the risk of getting cut.

Cardiff and Hull chiefs have got it wrong, says QPR chairman Fernandes

first_imgQPR chairman Tony Fernandes has said he is keen to avoid the kind of acrimony caused by the rebranding of Cardiff City and Hull City.Cardiff owner Vincent Tan upset Bluebirds fans by changing the team’s home colour from blue to red, while Hull supremo Assem Allam has caused anger by seeking to change the club’s name to Hull Tigers.In an interview with Reuters, Fernandes said: “I take a different approach to life. I like to talk to my fans, I like to get their feedback.“I don’t think we have had a single fan against our [stadium] move, because we have managed it differently.“I am in the pub with the fans, I am in the stands with the fans. Although they may not physically own the club, the fans are part of the club. Without them there is no club, so I think their views have to be taken into consideration.“I’d love to change (the kit) to red but we bought a club that’s blue, so we’ll stick with blue.“I think QPR is a unique name but it’s like buying Harrods, why do you want to change it?”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Introducing an African football

first_imgKopanya’s eye-catching design was inspired by the artwork of the Ndebele people of southern Africa. It won’t be the first time that Ndebele artwork will be seen on the international sporting stage; the yacht of Team Shosholoza, South Africa’s America’s Cup challenger, features a design inspired by Ndebele and Zulu artwork. Inspired by Ndebele artwork “Kopanya” means “join together” in Sesotho, or Southern Sotho, the home language of about five-million South Africans. Bafana Bafana must have taken a liking to the ball; they turned in one of their best performances in years to beat Africa’s top-ranked side 3-2. Kopanya will be available for purchase from 1 December. Suited to its surroundings The complex shapes and black contours, traditional Ndebele elements, have been fused with the colourful vibrancy that typifies modern Ndebele artists. A silver sheen provides a futuristic touch. Comments about the ball, posted on the website Footballshirtculture.com, were very favourable. The ball, says Adidas, provides perfect flight characteristics and allows players exceptional ball control, like its predecessor the “Europass”, which was used in Euro 2008. center_img Dave Stopher commented: “That is nice!! I must admit that this ball is very suiting for its surroundings, I think. I hope the World Cup ball is similar in design.” The ball made its first appearance in the Nelson Mandela Challenge match between South Africa and Cameroon in Rustenburg on 19 November. Jon said: “I’m from SA and I’m impressed by this ball’s design … Yes, it’s a regular Teamgeist ball but the pattern is cleverly worked on.” 28 November 2008 The 2009 Fifa Confederations Cup will feature a tailor-made ball, called “Kopanya”, which Adidas has designed specifically for the event, and which reflects and pays tribute to tournament hosts South Africa.

Tickets to this match were already sold out when over-the-counter sales opened on 15 April.The tickets are part of Fifa and its partners’ Ticket Fund scheme, which will distribute 120 000 free tickets to South Africans.The workers’ free was a promise Fifa President Sepp Blatter made in September 2008. “We’re happy that Fifa and the LOC have kept their promise,” said Patrick Geqeza, a shop steward for Soccer City’s National Union of Mineworkers-affiliated workers.Geqeza and his fellow workers have been given letters which will allow them to redeem their tickets from 17 May. “The chance to sit in the stadiums we have built is a perfect reward,” he said.LOC CEO Danny Jordaan encouraged the workers to support the South African team. “You [will] be part of the show on that day,” he said. “You must come make noise for Bafana Bafana.”Enjoying the match with loved onesNobuntu Mbali of Freedom Park has been working at the stadium since January 2009, and will watch the much-anticipated opening match with her husband. “I’m excited that I will get to see Bafana Bafana playing in the stadium I built,” she said.Sandra Mdluli from Kagiso, a township in Mogale City, couldn’t afford to buy a ticket and is thankful to Fifa, she said. “I wouldn’t have the money to buy the tickets. My heart would hurt if I were not to see South Africa playing in the stadium I built.”Mdluli has been part of the Soccer City project since August 2008. It is long-term workers like her that the scheme is targeting. It prioritises with those that have been with the construction projects the longest, while those who were employed about six months ago unlikely to get a ticket.The reconstruction of Soccer City is a joint venture between Grinaker-LTA and Interbeton, a Dutch company.‘They built beautiful stadiums’Jordaan said the workers deserve to be recognised for the splendid work done since 2007, building celebrated arenas like Soccer City, Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban, Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit and the others.“The world can see what you’ve built. [They’re] not just stadiums, but monuments for our country,” he said. “You’ve made us proud.”Fifa general-secretary Jerome Valcke also praised the workers, and their work. “You have built beautiful stadiums and we’re amazed,” he said.The workers themselves expressed pride in the stamp Soccer City makes in the landscape. The 91 500-seater stadium stands on a rise, silhouetted against the sky, next to mine dumps and near a busy road to Soweto – a stunning view.“I am really proud when I look at the work my fellow workers and I have done over the years,” said Geqeza.Ticket Fund is wide-rangingThe Ticket Fund is a partnership between Fifa and six of its 2010 World Cup sponsors. The sponsors are behind projects that protect the wellbeing of South African communities, and in turn supply participants with match tickets.Coca-Cola is distributing 20 000 tickets through its Give it Back recycling campaign. The nationwide campaign involves learners collecting and recycling plastic bottles.KIA Motors is offering 4 000 tickets through a programme combining street soccer and health education. The company partnered with Sporting Chance, a development organisation, to reach out to some of disadvantaged communities in the country.Sony, distributing 15 000 tickets, is focussing on a campaign that highlights HIV/Aids using football. Adidas will also donate 15 000 tickets to learners through its national arts competition. Visa is running a financial literacy programme in the country, and will give 5000 tickets to ordinary South Africans.last_img read more

NRI – Non Respected Indian

first_imgIt is hard to be an NRI in India. It is fine theoretically and seems to work fine for most purposes. But it can be damn hard sometimes. Each day, you discover more complications with this idea of living your own identity. And, we are not talking about dual citizenship or other such gimmicks.I found myself – my native identity now implanted firmly in the United States – in India two months ago. It was an interesting experience, to say the least. It seemed like making myself an object of learning, even as I was learning what it means to be an NRI in India. It so happened that I was with a Caucasian American associate for most of the trip. That provided even more engaging encounters and eye-opening discoveries. For part of the trip, we stayed at an ecohotel in Mumbai, appropriately named Orchid. If you insist on asking what that is, it is in many ways a metaphor for treating people. It is supposed to be an environmentally friendly place, plugging into a countercultural, socially aware capitalism that is taking hold in India. There is little they seemed to conserve, including water for your showers or supplies in your closet. It was hard to see what they did to be eco-friendly. But it seemed to work well as a publicity stunt. When guests arrived, they were to be treated equally, with glittering promises written all over the entrances on little electronic boards. In reality, the story was different.I shouldn’t pick on this hotel alone, because quick visits to hotels in the vicinity and my telephone inquiries with other hotels in the area convinced me that there seemed to be a common three-tier policy toward three classes of guests (who knows how many others). First, there is a rate at Indian hotels for dollar-paying customers. Then there is a second rate for those who shell out the native currency. Generally, locals pay a fraction of what foreign customers do. That is a charming part of the Indian hospitality system, but let us hold that discussion for another day. There is also, yet another level for those who can pay in dollars, but who are native – the NRI crowd. Some may get by paying in Rupees by hiding their NRI identity. The ability to speak the local language helps and feeling comfortable in the environment helps too. But if you are outed as an NRI, you pay the dollar rate. If that is not curious enough, consider this: a dollar paying customer, checking in at the same time, in the same kind and class of room, gets a bathrobe and extra goodies in his room, while the poor native-looking shmuck does not get these rewards. I discovered this even if the non-blessed NRI forks out the full dollar rate.The discrimination does not stop there. There is the servile attitude that is deeply implanted among us toward whites and Westerners. So they continue to get the privileged deal over the local-yokal NRI. Indians and NRIs seem so used to it, that we don’t complain too much (if ever) or even tacitly play along. I spent a good part of my stay figuring out and playing games to discover that the service is slower for us NRIs over Westerners and simply fewer warmer smiles. All this while, paying the same the non-shmuck foreigner pays.Airlines seem to have the same logic too. There are two different layers of fares. If you pay in the coveted alien currency, you can carry larger pieces of luggage and it arrives on time. It does not look like it has been thrown around. I was keen to see if these people arrive early, but that did not seem to happen.One time on Hungarian Malev airline, I was told that Hungarians behaved well in the presence of foreigners and so did the airline staff. However, if there were no foreigners on the plane, all bets were off and it was party time. Well, good for them. On Indian airlines, somehow, things work the other way around. We seem to be on our better behavior when we are by ourselves. Mixing the pot produces weird gestures, like this servile attitude, which becomes a shameful spectacle in itself. How many times do you have to offer food to the already plentiful people? There is some respect that NRIs get in public places, but it is more this servile awe and not this non-assuming easy-going attitude with which people treat each other in India. It is no doubt a curse for NRI tourists if they genuinely like the easy and charming presence of being ourselves among ourselves.But throughout my India visit, something inside me yearned to be treated like a genuine Indian. I did what every NRI Indian wannabe does, donning simple clothes and wiping off that NRI look off my face. But to no avail. There is a two-tiered ticketing system at most archeological and tourist sites in India from the Taj Mahal to Mahabalipuram. A foreigner pays more, several times more, than the native. And the NRI? I thought I was fully Indian. I acted like one, language, gestures and all. Since I am a real Indian, I thought I could get away paying the genuine Indian price for entry to the Mahabalipuram site. I even stopped my English yards away from the ticket counter. But I could not outfox the sharp and even clever minds of the personnel at the ticket counter, who would not give up the idea that I was not a native. Even though I am not a natural actor, I gave it my best shot. Mine, after all, is 20- year-old memory of being an Indian, mind you. Nothing worked and I had to again fork out the dollar price to enter the site, which made me proud to be an Indian. Sure, I could afford the price in dollars. I was going to bust my budget for the India visit regardless. My motivation to trick the sharp cookies behind the counter was not so much to save money, but to prove a point. I am an Indian and can act like one. And that did not work. As an NRI that really hits you where it hurts.We all attempt something like this in India. There were plenty of examples all around. I was advised to make reservations at Indian hotels through native friends and relatives. There is a way to hide this or that NRI part of your identity to save a buck. After all, the desire to save a buck, even if it is the poor Rupeee, makes us like the native Indians. But underneath all that, there seems to be a need not to sound and look like a foreigner. Funny thing is that if you really looked and sounded like a foreigner, you would be treated better. Paying more may not be fair to the fair skinned, but you will atleast be treated better – better than the lesser paying locals and the equally higher paying NRI shmuck. But among us NRIs there is this urge to sound and look like an Indian and to be treated like one. And, guess what, even that is difficult.So what do you do? Hide being what you are, or show it off. If you showed off, you are really not the real thing.There is still the totem pole of respect and we NRIs have not reached any higher since the time we left India – only our price of admission went up.   Related Itemslast_img read more

Antetokounmpo scores 27 as Bucks beat Grizzlies

first_imgRead Next Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Khris Middleton and John Henson had 17 points apiece as Milwaukee won a season-high third straight. Henson made eight of 10 shots in his highest-scoring game this season.Tyreke Evans scored 14 of his 27 points in the fourth quarter for Memphis, and Dillon Brooks added 19 points.After the Bucks threatened to pull away late in the third, Evans scored nine consecutive points to pull Memphis into an 84-all tie early in the fourth quarter. Memphis pulled ahead on Dillon Brooks’ 3-pointer with about nine minutes left. Milwaukee tied it on Tony Snell’s corner 3. A soft drop-in by Antetokounmpo put the Bucks ahead 100-96 with just under five minutes remaining, a lead they wouldn’t relinquish.“Normally that game gets away from us,” Kidd said. “When we came back with the starters, we went on a run, but it started on the defensive end.”The Bucks got off to a strong start, shooting 65 percent from the field in the first quarter, including 6 for 6 on 3-pointers, to take a 34-29 lead.ADVERTISEMENT “It was confidence boost to see shots go down,” Middleton said.Memphis hit 10 of its first 11 shots in the second quarter to take a 10-point lead with 4:24 left in the half. Milwaukee made just one of six shots from long-range in the quarter, but pulled to 65-60 at the break, led by Antetokounmpo’s 12 points in the period.POSITIVE ATTITUDEFizdale said he is taking a positive approach with point guard Mike Conley, who has struggled with his shooting this season. He made 2 of 12 shots against the Bucks after entering the game shooting 40 percent from the field and 31 percent from 3-point range.“Be positive. There’s no beating the players up over struggles,” Fizdale said. “It’s not the way to get them out of it, and it’s never been my approach. Mike has had a nagging injury and can’t control that.”BANG FOR THE BUCKFizdale believes the Bucks improved considerably with the recent acquisition of Eric Bledsoe from the Phoenix Suns.“You add Eric Bledsoe to anybody’s team and you are going to be way more concerned,” Fizdale said. “Obviously, there’s the pace and the speed that he brings to the game.

Brady Quinn: Notre Dame’s Schedule Is Biggest Issue It Faces This Year

first_img On the other hand, Quinn did reveal that Notre Dame’s schedule could be a major issue, saying “I think the toughest thing they have to battle this year is their schedule.”Notre Dame has to face Georgia, Michigan and Stanford on the road this season.Here is the segment from The Herd that featured Quinn:Trevor Lawrence has the attention of @MattLeinartQB:”He just gets it, he understands it… I’ve never seen a freshman quarterback play like that.” pic.twitter.com/J5iCMaOyCy— Herd w/Colin Cowherd (@TheHerd) August 23, 2019Tough road contests are going to pose a threat to Notre Dame’s postseason chances, but that isn’t the only problem. Multiple opponents on the schedule will be coming off their own bye week.“Seven teams coming off bye – that’s the most in college football this year,” Brady Quinn said. “I think those are the roadblocks they’ll have to get through because so many teams are going to have two weeks to prepare for them.”Current projections have the Fighting Irish missing the Playoff. That would change if they can get through all the road tests that are waiting ahead of them.Notre Dame will be on the road to open the 2019 season as it’ll face Louisville on September 2.

Instead of letting the blowout loss to Clemson affect his view of the program, he thinks it’ll serve as a great learning experience.“I think there in a good spot, and I think they feel as good about this year’s team as ever before,” Quinn said. “Ian Book and the rest of the leaders on that team have a good idea of what they need to do moving forward in order to get there (the Playoff).”last_img read more

First Phase of Asbestos Management Report Released

first_imgAn independent environmental expert has confirmed that the Cape Breton Island Housing Authority properly managed the asbestos issue in public housing once it was brought to light this spring. The Department of Community Services released a report today, July 27, by Pinchin LeBlanc Environmental Limited, on the actions taken in dealing with vermiculite insulation that contained asbestos in two Cape Breton public housing complexes. The phase one report concluded that the actions taken by the Cape Breton Island Housing Authority met or exceeded industry standards in managing the discovery of asbestos. Recognized as national experts in asbestos management, Pinchin LeBlanc Environmental Limited determined that the Cape Breton Island Housing Authority and its contracted firm, Atlantic Indoor Air Audit Co., took all the necessary and appropriate actions in identifying and containing the asbestos found in vermiculite insulation in the homes at the Whitney Pier and Ashby locations. Ron LeBlanc, president of Pinchin LeBlanc Environmental Limited said, “Based on our review, we determined that the methods, procedures, and materials used for sealing all meet or exceed federal and provincial standards for this type of work.” The provincial government hired Pinchin LeBlanc Environmental Limited to review and validate all activities undertaken by the Cape Breton Island Housing Authority following the April stop-work order issued by the Department of Environment and Labour. Joan McKeough, director of the Cape Breton Island Housing Authority said, “We are pleased to have our early work in asbestos management confirmed as high quality, complete, and an appropriate response to the circumstances. We want to again reassure residents that their homes are safe.” Vermiculite insulation containing asbestos was discovered in attics of the Whitney Pier and Ashby Terrace apartments in April. The Atlantic Indoor Air Audit Co. conducted more than 100 air monitoring tests for the Cape Breton Island Housing Authority. To date, test results from 84 residents’ units indicate only one asbestos fibre has been detected. That is less than .000002 fibres per cubic centimetre, well below the Canadian occupational exposure limit of 0.1 fibres per cubic centimetre. Additional testing by Pinchin LeBlanc Environmental Limited found one asbestos fibre associated with vermiculite which was also well below occupational exposure limits. All attics were sealed with metal plates as were areas where an opportunity for movement of insulation from the attic space to the living space could have occurred, such as wall and ceiling junctions, around electrical fixtures, chimney shafts and furnace areas. Phase two of the Pinchin LeBlanc report is expected this fall and will identify options for permanently dealing with the attic insulation in the public housing units. Ms. McKeough said the Cape Breton Island Housing Authority is looking forward to receiving the phase two report from Pinchin LeBlanc Environmental Limited and to adopting a permanent solution that further ensures the long-term health and safety of residents. A copy of the report is available on the Community Services website at www.gov.ns.ca/coms/documents/PLPhase1.pdf .last_img read more

New Health Care Workers On The Job

first_imgThe Annapolis Valley’s 16 newest continuing care assistants received certificates at a ceremony in Coldbrook today, Dec. 22. The 16 women, who have guaranteed job offers, prepared for their new careers through the province’s One Journey program, which addresses the shortage of skilled workers in some sectors of the economy. “One Journey is an interesting program,” said Service Nova Scotia and Municipal Relations Minister Ramona Jennex, on behalf of Labour and Workforce Development Minister Marilyn More. “It brings the federal and provincial governments together with employers who have unmet and growing needs for skilled workers and trains people to fill those needs.” Each person took a different path to the program. Some were affected by large layoffs in regional industries, while others were referred by the Department of Community Services or were ineligible for Employment Insurance. The 10-month training was delivered and co-ordinated by PeopleWorx, a not-for-profit organization based in Kentville, that works with clients, employers and other community partners to overcome employment obstacles across the Annapolis Valley. “The graduates came from varied backgrounds and experiences, and they received rave reviews from the agencies where they trained,” said PeopleWorx executive director Bill Travis. “They were dedicated, hard-working and mature, and I know they will do well in their new profession.” One Journey provided the students with continuing care assistant training required by the Department of Health, general workplace skills upgrading, employment counselling and placement services. Funding and support came from a combination of government and private sector sources. In February, the Department of Labour and Workforce Development invested $91,091 to support the project. The funding came from the Canada-Nova Scotia Labour Market Agreement, which provides skills training and upgrading to meet job market needs in the province. The Department of Health added $88,000 through its Continuing Care Assistant Bursary Assistance Program. The Evergreen Home for Special Care-Kentville, Grand View Manor-Berwick, Shannex-Kentville, and Wolfville Nursing Homes Ltd. offered on-the-job experience and supervision, lab space, advice to the trainers and guaranteed positions for graduates. Over the past two years, One Journey has trained 60 continuing care assistants for positions in Antigonish, New Glasgow, Tatamagouche, Truro and the Valley. Through 10 other One Journey programs, about 105 people trained to become professional truck drivers and residential counsellors.last_img read more

WatchThe cost of owning a home in Vancouver 88 of income has

Housing affordability in Greater Vancouver reached a “crisis level” in the first quarter, with additional interest rate hikes expected to take another bite out of Canadian housing affordability in the months to come, says an RBC report.The share of household income required to cover mortgage payments, property taxes and utilities in the Greater Vancouver Area reached a record high of 87.8 per cent in the first quarter, rising 1.5 percentage points from the fourth quarter and up 9.5 per cent from the prior year.“And things could get worse if — or when — interest rates rise further,” said the report by RBC chief economist Craig Wright and senior economist Robert Hogue.A cooling in the market may take pressure off prices but it’s unlikely to ease affordability tensions, they wrote.The cost of home ownership in Victoria was also high at 62.7 per cent, up from 48 per cent in mid-2015.The Bank of Canada is expected to increase its overnight rate by one percentage point to 2.25 per cent by the first half of 2019.Growing household income and cooler housing markets in some areas should provide some limited offset.Nationally, the proportion of income required to pay home ownership costs rose 0.4 percentage points from the fourth quarter to 48.4 per cent.The move reversed a 0.3 percentage point drop in the fourth quarter.“Well, the winning streak for housing affordability in Canada ended … at just one quarter!” said the report.Mortgage rates increased in the previous two quarters, but a drop in home prices — mainly in the Greater Toronto Area — trimmed ownership costs modestly.The Greater Toronto Area saw affordability improve slightly to 74.2 per cent as a dip in home prices counteracted higher interest rates.The mortgage stress test that came into effect in January added downward pressure on property values that were still adjusting to new measures in Ontario including a 15 per cent foreign buyer tax and the expansion of rent controls to all private rental units.RBC said home prices in and around the country’s largest city should move slightly higher in the near term after declining modestly in the past two quarters.Saskatoon, Ottawa, Halifax and St. John’s, N.L., saw the largest declines in affordability in more than a year, but housing costs remained low at between 27 and 36.6 per cent.“This shouldn’t raise too many concerns at this stage because the level of the measure for each of these markets remains close to its historical average — indicating that any affordability-related stress isn’t abnormally high,” said the report.However, stress may be building in the Greater Montreal Area, which saw costs reach their highest point since 2011 at 43.7 per cent.“Montreal’s housing market continues to show all-round, solid momentum and steadily rising prices in the early part of 2018,” RBC said. “The flipside, though, is that it’s becoming less and less affordable to own a home in the area.”Ownership costs rose slightly in Saint John in the first quarter, but the New Brunswick city was the most affordable of those tracked by RBC at 25.9 per cent.Halifax affordability was resilient at 32.7 per cent, with a 1.2 per cent decrease in resales in the first quarter, compared to 13 per cent drop nationally.Housing remains inexpensive outside Canada’s three hottest housing markets — Vancouver, Toronto and Victoria, said a separate report from the Bank of Montreal. In most cities, property costs are less than four-times family income while mortgage payments consume less than 20 per cent of salaries, which is little changed from the mid-2000s.“Borrowing five-year money costs little more today than five years ago and remains well below historic norms,” said BMO senior economist Sal Guatieri.“Government intensification policies that restrict the supply of ground-related units, low joblessness and well-paying, high-tech jobs are also cushioning prices.” read more

UN envoy on hand as Afghanistan swears in new cabinet

Yesterday, Lakhdar Brahimi, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Representative for Afghanistan, held his first formal meeting with members of the Afghan Independent Human Rights Commission.The envoy told participants that their success would be measured by how much help they would provide to those who would needed it, and by how much respect they would earn from their countrymen. He also reiterated the UN’s support for the Commission’s work.The Commission was created by a decree signed into law on 6 June by Afghan President Hamid Karzai, who was then Chairman of the Interim Administration, and is charged with developing a national plan of action for human rights in the country.The 11-member body is comprised of persons who were appointed based on their individual human rights expertise, personal and professional integrity as well as their competence, demonstrated independence and commitment to human rights and public credibility. read more

Yemen UN humanitarian chief urges civilian protection access to all parts of

“All parties in this conflict have an obligation under international humanitarian law to take every measure to ensure civilians and civilian objects are protected,” UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator Stephen O’Brien told the 15-member body by teleconference this morning.He called it “unacceptable” that health facilities were being hit, referring to an attack on 24 February when Coalition air strikes reportedly destroyed a health centre in Bidbadah district of Marib Governorate, and 1 March airstrikes that reportedly landed within 20 meters of a hospital in Sa’ada.“It is critical that the parties make guarantees that these locations will be protected,” Mr. O’Brien added, including as “protected places” sites such as hospitals, schools and homes, which he said continue to be hit by all parties.Since the start of the conflict, more than 2,000 children have been killed or injured in the fighting, Mr. O’Brien said.In the past week, for example, six children were among the 30 or so people killed in an apparent air strike on a busy market in Nahem district of Sana’a Governorate. An additional 40 people were injured. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is among those who have called for a prompt and impartial investigation into the incident on 27 February. Challenges to aid deliverySuch attacks have contributed to a security situation across much of the country which is “rapidly deteriorating,” said Mr. O’Brien, citing an absence of political negotiations to end the conflict. He cited “regular” attacks by parties including Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, the so-called Aden and Abyan branch of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levans (ISIL) and local militants, against segments of the Yemeni Government.Intense fighting in parts of the country is restricting the UN’s ability to deliver assistance, the senior UN official warned, highlighting also the impediments caused by a proliferation of checkpoints and communication gaps in command and control lines within armed groups. “Agreements and guarantees reached at the national level [are] not necessarily communicated downstream to the individuals at checkpoints,” he said. “Despite permission to move trucks are often held up and sometimes delayed for days or even weeks,” he added. Bureaucratic requirements imposed by Houthi authorities also delay and impede the delivery of aid, he noted. Of particular concern is a delay since October 2015 for a UN agency Emergency Food Security and Nutrition Assessment that is due to be done over three months by the UN World Food Programme (WFP), with the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF).Despite the challenges, UN agencies and partners remain committed to expanding its overall response to 13.4 million people throughout Yemen. To achieve this, the Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan for this year has appealed for $1.8 billion. Protecting civilian infrastructureIn his briefing today, Mr. O’Brien also called on all parties to ensure protection of civilian infrastructure, including shipping ports and associated equipment.In recent months, there has been a significant increase in fuel and other life-saving imports through Yemeni ports: “It is critical that every effort be made by all Member States directly concerned to encourage, and not hinder, that trend.” The Coalition and the United Nations are due to finalize this week the nominations for the UN Verification and Inspection Mechanism (UNVIM), instituted at the request of the Government of Yemen. The Mechanism is intended to expedite legitimate commercial imports of fuel, and other critical commodities, such as food and medicines.Mr. O’Brien’s briefing comes just weeks after UN Special Envoy Ismail Ould Cheikh Ahmed urged the Council and the wider international community to support the effort to secure a cessation of hostilities and open a new round of talks that could open the way to ending the year-long conflict between various factions. Mr. Ould Cheikh Ahmed also briefed the Council today. He spoke by teleconference in the closed consultation session that followed the open meeting. read more

Consistent Ameryst Alston growing into leader for Ohio State womens basketball

Sophomore guard Ameryst Alston (14) dribbles the ball during a game against Michigan Jan. 5 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU lost, 64-49.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorAmeryst Alston is holding court in the women’s basketball program and she’s only in her second year.Coming in at 5 feet 9 inches, the sophomore guard has been on fire this season and has shown no signs of slowing down.Through 19 games this season, the Canton McKinley High School grad is averaging 16.9 points per game, which leads the team, and is also fifth in the Big Ten. She is the only Buckeye to average double-digits in points so far this season.Despite only being a sophomore, coach Kevin McGuff said he has plenty of confidence in his starting point guard.“We are at our best when she is playing very aggressively,” McGuff said. “She has made great strides since the first day we were here.”Alston earned Big Ten Player of the Week honors after tying a career-high 29 points in her performance against previously unbeaten and then-No. 22 Indiana.The news came as a surprise to Alston, who found out via social media. But how she got the news didn’t diminish its impact.“I actually didn’t even know,” Alston said. “I got on Instagram and got on Twitter and that’s how I found out and it always means a lot to me.”Alston is coming off a season where she was named to the Big Ten All-Freshman team. She was also fourth on the team in scoring with 6.5 points per game and tied for second with 30.3 minutes per contest.She also set a school record with 55 minutes played during an 82-75 triple overtime loss at Purdue Jan. 14, 2013.Indiana coach Curt Miller noted Alston’s success in one-on-one, a skill Alston said she sees as her strong point.“The one-on-one ability by Ameryst … was the big difference in the game tonight,” Miller said after the Buckeyes beat Indiana 70-51. “They created havoc with their penetration.”Alston said she has confidence in one-on-one situations.“I really like one-on-one,” Alston said. “I play with my brother one-on-one all the time and that’s my thing. I am pretty confident.”Along with leading the team in scoring Alston is second on the team in assists per game (2.5) and sixth in rebounds (3.5).With her increased presence on the court, Alston is being forced to step into the role of a leader, which is something she has been working toward improving.“I am still learning to be a leader,” Alston said. “I am working on it. It’s me trying to get outside myself because I am a quiet person and being a point guard, you have to talk.”While Alston might be quiet, that doesn’t stop her teammates from taking notice of her contributions.Junior guard Raven Ferguson noted that despite the team’s inconsistency throughout the season, Alston has remained consistent.“A lot of players have been up and down,” Ferguson said. “She’s one of the players who has been very consistent scoring wise and playing hard. We kind of feed off of her.”Alston looks to continue her successful play when the Buckeyes hit the road for State College, Pa., to take on Penn State Thursday at 7 p.m. read more

Breaking down NFL Championship weekend

New York Jets vs. Indianapolis ColtsThis contest resembles the movie “Saving Private Ryan.” The American soldiers that were ordered to find private Ryan captured a German soldier. The Americans could have easily executed the soldier, but the character played by Tom Hanks told his patrol to let him go.In the conclusion of the movie, that same German soldier who was set free kills one of the American soldiers in that same patrol.When the Colts and Jets originally faced each other in Week 16, Indianapolis had a lead going into the second half and looked as if it would continue its undefeated season. Also, if the Jets lost the game, they would be out of the playoff hunt altogether, their season virtually over.But instead of ending the Jets’ playoff hopes, the Colts pulled their marquee players in the second half to rest for January. The Jets went on to win the contest and they have recently gone on a miraculous run to reach the AFC Championship game against the team that gave them an extra life.After the Colts let the Jets slip right through their fingers, they now will have to face off with a team that is currently brimming with confidence. Some critics believe that Indianapolis has lost its edge after resting their starters, but they won’t take New York lightly.The Colts are the only team left in the playoff that has been in the Super Bowl in recent memory. New York hasn’t won since a quarterback named Joe Namath guaranteed a championship victory in Super Bowl III. Indy is stockpiled with playoff experience and is led by MVP quarterback Peyton Manning and receiving threats Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark. The Jets have an elite running attack, but the Colts proved to the world that they could shut down the run after silencing the Baltimore Ravens’ impressive running game.Jets head coach Rex Ryan said in the first five minutes of his inaugural press conference that his team would win the Super Bowl. Sports fans around the country laughed at the cocky coach, but New York is only one win away from reaching their destination.The Jets defense was able to slow down the Chargers’ high-octane offense with a bend-but-don’t-break approach last weekend. Rookie quarterback Mark Sanchez is a perfect complement to his defense as he is playing mistake free football. Rookie running back Shonn Green and veteran Thomas Jones have been the key to the Jets’ playoff success, leading the league in rushing .The Colts are playing in their cozy confines in Indianapolis and have plenty of incentives to seek revenge against the Jets, but the Jets are clicking at just the right time and will fulfill Rex Ryan’s prediction.Pick: New York Jets Minnesota Vikings vs. New Orleans SaintsSo far, Brett Favre has dismissed some of his critics while leading the Vikings to the NFC Championship game. At the age of 40, Favre has had arguably his most successful season. It seems that he has finally learned that his gunslinging mentality of the last few years won’t work against modern defenses. Favre has become a game manager this season while racking up an impressive number of touchdowns and throwing a career-low seven interceptions. But it also doesn’t hurt to have running back Adrian Peterson standing behind him.Saints running back Reggie Bush doesn’t look like the same collegiate player from USC who avoided contact and juked around defenders. To the surprise of football fans around the country, Bush ran over defenders to gain chunks of yards against the Arizona Cardinals last weekend. New Orleans possesses a three-headed monster of running backs featuring Pierre Thomas, Mike Bell and Bush. Along with their dynamic pass offense, led by quarterback Drew Brees and stud receiver Marques Colston, the Saints have almost a limitless arsenal on offense.Don’t discredit the Saints defense. After a week of rest in the bye week in Wildcard weekend, key defensive players had time to heal their injuries. This was surely displayed when the Saints defense made Kurt Warner look like Raiders quarterback JaMarcus Russell. The Viking defense is easily the superior squad in this contest. The front four of Minnesota’s defensive line tormented Tony Romo the entire contest last weekend, not allowing the Dallas quarterback to produce anything significant. Jared Allen leads arguably the best defense line in football and the team secondary is ranked among the league’s elite.The Superdome should play a significant factor in this Conference Championship game. The Saints will ride the New Orleans crowd that is begging for their first ever Super Bowl. The No. 1 seed in the NFC should answer their call to win the high-scoring contest.Pick: New Orleans Saints read more

Priest asked to give evidence over Facebook claims

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Adelaide priest, the Reverend Prokopios Kanavas, has been asked by the Greek Orthodox Community of South Australia to give evidence over claims he posted on his Facebook wall. Reverend Prokopios, from St Nicholas Parish in Thebarton, South Australia, claimed that he has completed a degree in Theology and International Law at Israel’s Hebrew University of Jerusalem, represented the Patriarchate of Jerusalem at conferences, and restored a monastery at his own expense.However, the university has stated that they have no record of him studying there, and the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Jerusalem has denied these claims in a letter sent to Bishop Nikandros, the head of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese in SA. The chairman of the Federation of Greek Communities in Australia, property developer Theo Maras, told Adelaide Now he was “concerned” about the allegations. He called on the council to “deal with this quickly and ensure that the communities’ concerns are allayed”.The letter sent by the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Jerusalem made serious allegations about the priest – which can’t be stated due to legal reasons – that subsequently led to his defrocking in 2008. It said Reverend Prokopios, who represents himself in Adelaide as an Archimandrite, was ordained and served within the Jerusalem patriarchate as a deacon and that the Synod of the patriarchate deliberated on July 24, 2008, and defrocked him, at which time he reverted back to a lay person. He then joined the Greek Army, later joining another faction of the church, was again ordained and made his way to Adelaide in 2010.last_img read more

Man arrested for attempting to carjack his own mother downtown

first_img KUSI Newsroom, May 9, 2018 Man arrested for attempting to carjack his own mother downtown Posted: May 9, 2018 Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter KUSI Newsroom SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A 42-year-old man was arrested for trying to carjack his mother and then assaulting her in front of a crowd of people in the Marina area of downtown San Diego, police said Wednesday.It happened around 8:25 p.m. Tuesday when the man asked his 59-year- old mother to drive him to the bank, San Diego police Officer John Buttle said. During the ride, the man allegedly directed his mother to take back roads, which she thought was odd.In the 500 block of Second Avenue, “the suspect suddenly reached over, threw the car in park and took the keys out of the ignition,” Buttle said.He then got out of the car, at which time his mother locked the doors, but the son tried to unlock the doors and pull his mother out of the car, Buttle said. By this point, a crowd had gathered, and the man threw the keys at his mother and fled eastbound.He was later taken into custody at Sixth Avenue and K Street near Petco Park, Buttle said. Robbery detectives are investigating the incident as an attempted carjacking. last_img read more

BMW recalls SUVs for instrument panels that could hinder airbag deployments

Jon Wong/Roadshow Automakers rely on a variety of suppliers for many parts inside their vehicles, and occasionally, a freak occurrence at one of those suppliers can be serious enough to warrant a recall.BMW has issued a recall for 50 examples of certain variants of the 2019 X3 and 2019 X4. Only 36 X3 variants are involved, covering the sDrive30i, xDrive30i and M40i, carrying production dates of March 19 and 20, 2019. The remaining 14 vehicles were X4 M40i variants built in the same two-day span.The problem stems from the instrument panel. According to the report filed with NHTSA, a supplier error during a lamination process resulted in panels containing adhesive not specified for the intended purpose. This creates the possibility that the cover over the passenger front airbag might not work as intended in a crash, potentially hindering airbag deployment and increasing the risk of injury.BMW found out about this problem from the supplier itself, which admitted that there may have been an error in production. BMW went to work identifying which vehicles might have the potentially faulty instrument panels, and the automaker then conducted a voluntary recall based on the information it gathered. Thankfully, it’s not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this defect.The remedy is about as simple as it can be. Once recalled vehicles have been returned to dealerships, technicians will swap out the faulty instrument panels with correctly bonded pieces. As with all recalls, the job will be performed free of charge, and since the new-vehicle warranty is in effect for all recalled vehicles, there won’t be a reimbursement program in place, as nobody should have paid for a repair in the first place. Owners should expect to receive recall notifications in the mail in early June.

Researchers find some plants get their nitrogen from fungi that kill insects

first_img Citation: Researchers find some plants get their nitrogen from fungi that kill insects (2012, June 22) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-06-nitrogen-fungi-insects.html This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. After noting that a prior team of researchers had found that white pine trees got some of their nitrogen from fungus living in their roots that had obtained the nitrogen by killing springtails, the team wondered if perhaps many other plants did the same. To find out, they chose two random but common plants, haricot beans and switchgrass.First they fed waxmoth larve a diet rich in a non-common type of nitrogen; nitrogen-15, so as to be able to distinguish it from the nitrogen that would normally be found in the plants. Next they infected the soil near the roots of the plants with Metarhizium, a very common type of fungi that is known to kill insects by releasing an enzyme that eats its way through the outer shell allowing the bug inside to be easily devoured. Then, they buried the infected larvae in the soil among the plant roots, along with a mesh to prevent the roots of the plants from reaching past the infected soil to soil that had been enriched with nitrogen through normal bacterial decomposition.Two weeks later they tested the plants and found that the nitrogen in the beans was 28% nitrogen-15, and 32% in the switchgrass, proving that the plants had obtained at least some of their nitrogen from the fungi that had in turn got it from killing the enriched larvae. The chain was complete.Because they used both common plants and fungi, the team believes their results show that such nitrogen chains: insects-fungi-plants, are likely very common. They say more research is needed however, to determine if the chain they created in the lab is just as prevalent in the wild. © 2012 Phys.Org Explore further Journal information: Sciencecenter_img Fungi important in Arctic nitrogen cycle Cockroach killed by Metarhizium anisopliae. Image: Chengshu Wang and Yuxian Xia, via Wikipedia. (Phys.org) — We’ve all grown up with stories of plants that capture, kill and eat insects; the Venus fly trap the most notable example. Now it appears some plants get their nitrogen from insects via proxy. Instead of having to develop a complicated system of traps to catch insects on their own, they rely on fungi to do their dirty work for them. A team of Canadian researchers from Brock University, St. Catharine’s, has found that some plants, as they describe in their paper published in Science, grab nitrogen from fungi that live in its roots. The fungi get it from killing insects. In return for its generosity, the fungi get carbon. More information: Endophytic Insect-Parasitic Fungi Translocate Nitrogen Directly from Insects to Plants, Science 22 June 2012: Vol. 336 no. 6088 pp. 1576-1577 DOI: 10.1126/science.1222289ABSTRACTMost plants obtain nitrogen through nitrogen-fixing bacteria and microbial decomposition of plant and animal material. Many vascular plants are able to form close symbiotic associations with endophytic fungi. Metarhizium is a common plant endophyte found in a large number of ecosystems. This abundant soil fungus is also a pathogen to a large number of insects, which are a source of nitrogen. It is possible that the endophytic capability and insect pathogenicity of Metarhizium are coupled to provide an active method of nitrogen transfer to plant hosts via fungal mycelia. We used soil microcosms to test the ability of M. robertsii to translocate insect-derived nitrogen to plants. Insects were injected with 15N-labeled nitrogen, and we tracked the incorporation of 15N into amino acids in two plant species, haricot bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) and switchgrass (Panicum virgatum), in the presence of M. robertsii. These findings are evidence that active nitrogen acquisition by plants in this tripartite interaction may play a larger role in soil nitrogen cycling than previously thought.last_img read more

Yangtze River Long river long history top tourist spot

first_imgBEIJING (AP) — The scene of a capsized cruise ship with hundreds on board is one of the longest and most famous rivers in the world. The Yangtze has dramatic cliffs, peaks and waterfalls that are often featured in Chinese paintings, but its importance goes far beyond that to its role as a major transportation artery that created some of the country’s biggest cities.LONG RIVERThe Chinese name for the Yangtze translates as “long river,” and, at 6,300 kilometers (4,000 miles), it is China’s longest and the world’s third, behind the Nile and the Amazon. It flows west to east from the glaciers on the Qinghai-Tibet plateau to the financial hub of Shanghai and out to the East China Sea. It sometimes floods during the summer monsoon season and parts of it are heavily polluted from industry and agriculture.LONG HISTORYFor centuries, the Yangtze was the key route for transporting goods in China, but parts of its waters were dangerous for junks to navigate because of rocks and fluctuating water levels.Nowadays, it is still a busy river that contributes to the economy of the cities and villages within its reaches, including five of China’s largest cities, such as the former capital of Nanjing.TOURIST MECCAThe Yangtze is a top tourist attraction in China, and boats offer mostly four- or five-day trips to and from the metropolis of Chongqing. Slow-sailing cruise boats offer spectacular views and short stops at historical and cultural sites, such as the world-famous Three Gorges Dam and the more mysterious Fengdu Ghost Town, which got its reputation from a local folklore. Tourists can also walk within an ancient city called Jingzhou with city walls and battlefields that are described in the Chinese literary classic “Romance of the Three Kingdoms.”Further west on the upper reaches of the Yangtze is the scenic canyon Tiger Leaping Gorge, about 240 miles (385 kilometers) from the Tibetan border, which ranks among the deepest gorges in the world. It is named for a tiger that is said to have escaped humans by leaping across the fierce waters where the canyon narrows.

The cruise ship that capsized Monday night had not yet reached the dam from its starting point in Nanjing. The dam started operating in 2003 after nine years of construction. The dam has been controversial because of geological and ecological concerns and the hundreds of thousands of people relocated to make way for it, but authorities say it was the best way to end centuries of flooding along the river.China’s worst floods in recent history were in 1998, when 4,150 people died, most along the Yangtze.Copyright © The Associated Press.

Job cuts as QF consolidates operations

first_imgUp to 535 Qantas employees will face termination, following the consolidation of Qantas’ heavy maintenance facilities.Facilities in Avalon and Brisbane will remain open, while maintenance repairs at Tullamarine will be discontinued by August 2012. In a statement issued this morning, the airline’s chief executive Alan Joyce said the restructure was necessary as there is currently not enough heavy maintenance work required to operate three separate facilities. Line maintenance will continue to be conducted at Tullamarine, employing over 300 workers. Mr Joyce was positive about the impending situation, highlighting the airline’s commitment to preserving heavy maintenance repairs within Australia.“Qantas has an outstanding track record in aircraft maintenance, and our commitment to setting a global standard for safety and quality in airline maintenance will never change.”The airline chief was also resonant in moving forward and developing its approach to servicing aircraft.“Qantas has invested heavily over the past 10 years in new aircraft that are more advanced, more efficient, attractive to our customers and require less maintenance, less often,” Mr Joyce said.“But we cannot take advantage of this new generation of aircraft if we continue to do heavy maintenance in the same way we did 10 years ago.”According to the airline, Qantas will offer significant support packages for affected employees including redundancy packages well in excess of the legislative requirements, career transition, access to skills and training programs and counselling for employees and their families.Plans to consolidate all services to Queensland were reported earlier in March of this year.

Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald (11) greets teammate Tyrann Mathieu (32) prior to an NFL preseason football game against the San Diego Chargers, Saturday, Aug. 22, 2015, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Matt York) Comments   Share   Wednesday, SI made their midseason predictions of Bedard now has the Cardinals taking on the Patriots in the Super Bowl.“That mute button on Twitter is a godsend,” Bedard joked about fans’ reactions on the Burns and Gambo show on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM.“It’s not my favorite thing in the world, actually I hate it,” Bedard said about making those predictions. “It’s a natural instinct to want your predictions to be right which goes against everything you’ve learned in journalism.”Also, the predictions were sort of a whirlwind for Bedard back in August.“I had no idea I picked them to lose ten games in a row,” he said. “I just took like a season grid and went week by week and just said ‘you know’. I took about five seconds, as you can imagine, to pick each game.”It’s not as if Bedard’s picks were unwarranted; The Cardinals QB had missed a majority of the 2014 season with a torn ACL and defensive coordinator Todd Bowles left in the offseason to coach the New York Jets.“Carson at his age coming back from another ACL, the offensive line looked terrible in the preseason,” Bedard said. “The defense had a new coordinator and I just thought may this would be a reset year for the Cardinals but obviously I was way off.” LISTEN: Greg Bedard, Si.com NFL writer Top Stories Every year, hundreds of sports writers make predictions and every year, quite a few end up well, quite a bit embarrassed.One of those writers is Greg Bedard of Sports Illustrated who has changed his tune quite a bit since his rough preseason predictions for the Arizona Cardinals.Back in early September, Bedard predicted every NFL game and he was definitely not high on the Cardinals. The senior NFL writer had the Cardinals going on a 10-game losing streak, finishing 5-11 and at the bottom of the NFC West. Halfway through the Cards are 6-2 and sitting in first place in their division. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Although he was obviously wrong, Bedard said he was at least able to admit it when in came to midseason prediction time.“I’m not going to be a moron and stick to my preseason picks now that we have actual data and Carson Palmer is not hurt,” he said.Now that he has actual game action to go off of, Bedard has a lot he likes about the Cardinals.“They’re pretty healthy,” he said. “That’s unbelievable and if that holds up, that’s the biggest factor to if a team holds up. They are so aggressive in all three phases of the game. They’re relentless, they don’t let opponents breathe.”The Cardinals are currently tied for second place in the NFC and if they want to make it to the Super Bowl like Bedard predicts, they’ll have to go through teams like the Carolina Panthers and the Green Bay Packers. Bedard thinks the latter won’t be a problem for the Cards.“I think defensively, they match up great against the Packers. Right now the Packers can’t get off man coverage and we know the Cardinals will do that. The Packers also have trouble protecting and the Cardinals can dial up some things as far as pressure. Offensively, the Packers have a lot of holes that I know Bruce Arians will exploit.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Bedard picked the Patriots as this year’s Super Bowl Champion but thinks Arians and company will definitely look interesting.“A team like the Cardinals, they can match up and Bruce Arians is the type of coach who has the guts to actually say ‘you know what? The Patriots can’t cover anyone in the secondary and we’re going to throttle them all game long.’ Now, I  have my qualms with Bruce as far as some of his game management, but the Cardinals, if they stay healthy they have the talent to match up against anybody.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more

Wednesday’s maiden test win over Steve Smith’s men bore witness to a meaner streak among players keen to engage in verbal volleys with the tourists at the Shere Bangla National Stadium Shakib led the

cent of the total population in citiesIndia and China were overwhelmingly rural and equally urban In 1990tooat 25-26 per cent of the totalthe urban proportions were similar By 2011howevera dramatic gap had appeared At the end of 2011the Chinese government saidChina was 51 per cent urbanwhereas that figure for India was only 32 per cent Urban China has stolen a big march over urban India in the last two decades Scholars have always been sceptical about official Chinese statistics It is also unclear how urban is defined in China During my recent visitIfor examplecould not get a clear answer from Chinese experts about the definition of the urban Urban is what the Chinese government calls urbanit seems But however one may cut the statistical clothdriving along Chinas industrialised eastern coast tells a clear tale Not even the most urbanised states of India look comparable: not Tamil Nadunot Gujaratnot Maharashtra The partial exception is greater Delhi Pictures and accounts from the Chinese interior also do not lookor soundas rural as those from Indias least urbanised states China today is undoubtedly much more urbanised than India Why is that so And who has paid for Chinas urban transformation While firmer answers must await careful scrutinywe can begin to generate some early ideas for reflection and debate The first questionsome might sayis straightforward As my seminar interlocutors in Beijing and Guangzhou arguedChinas per capita incomecompared to Indias todayis roughly three times as high At higher levels of incomesocieties tend to be more urban (and also generally less poor) But this argument begs an important query Is China more urban because it is richeror is China richer because it has pursued urbanisation more vigorously What is the cause What is the effect Development theory and historical experience make it clear that agricultural and rural incomes simply cannot grow as fast as industrial and urban incomes In developing countrieswhen agriculture grows at 3 per cent per yearthe performance is called good; when industry grows at that ratewe call it disappointing Industry is known to have grown at 8-10 per cent per year for several decades in successful developing economies No developing agriculture has ever grown at that rate for more than a few years Agriculture simply cannot grow as fast as industry on a sustained basis It follows that the greater the industrial or urban growth ratethe greater an economys overall output An unrelenting focus on agriculture and a neglect of cities simply hurt the pursuit of larger incomes and welfare An elementary principle of development is that for societies to become richeragriculture must decline and cities must rise The debate can be on: how should agriculture decline What are the best terms But decline it must Gandhis village republics can only be poor and contentednot rich and happy Indias past lived in villages Its future will reside in cities Thereforeit makes sense to ask how China urbanised so rapidly No society in history has ever added 350-400 million people to its cities in a matter of two decadesas China has done since 1990 And no society has pulled more people out of poverty as quickly A stark difference between India and China has to do with the ownership of land In Indiaa large proportion of land is privately owned In Chinathere is no private property in land Rural land belongs to collectivesurban land to governments Citizensfirmsorganisations have only user rights over landno ownership rights As a consequenceonce the government sponsors an industrial or urban project factoriesmetroshigh-speed trainsbridgesroadshousingcommercial buildings it faces little legal contestation Chinese governments can easily claim that urbanisation is in the public interest and individual interests must be sacrificed for the greater good of society Confident that no legal challenges can deter them60 per cent of the provincial cities are currently planning to build metros From an Indian perspectivethat is truly staggering Only Delhi metro and to some extentKolkata have gone smoothly If legal contestation is ruled outcan Chinese citizens mount political

traveling to the accident site Xinhua reported that President Xi Jinping had ordered a work team of the State Council the country’s Cabinet to rush to the site to guide the rescue work AP With not a thundersquall in sight Kolkata is sweltering at 36 degrees but with a RealFeel temperature of about 50 degrees But the citizenry’s discomfort is nothing compared to the discomfort felt by the West Bengal BJP They had to smile politely through gritted teeth and applaud as their bête noire Mamata Banerjee and their hero Narendra Modi put on a grand show of public bonhomie and broke bread privately together “Dal se bada desh hai (The country is bigger than parties)” said Modi generously “Kaam pyaar mobabbat se hota hain badnaami se nahin” (Work happens through love and affection not mudslinging)” said Mamata West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee with PM Narendra Modi in Kolkata on Saturday PTI Forget the Lok Sabha elections We have come a long way from the sturm and drang of even December 2014 when Mamata thundered “The situation in India is like Emergency now… I dare Narendra Modi and Amit Shah to arrest me This is an open challenge” And the BJP cadre chanted “Gali gali shor hain Mamata Banerjee chor hain” The Saradha investigation had embroiled Mamata’s trusted lieutenant Madan Mitra The party was distancing itself from former railway minister Mukul Roy And at Amit Shah’s rally in Kolkata the crowd was sure it was only a matter of time when the third M would fall – Mamata herself What a difference one municipal election and a few stalled bills can make Basking in the afterglow of that victory it is clear that now is Didi’s summer of content made even more glorious by the sun of Modi-ji The signs of thaw were already on the wall much like the graffiti for the just-concluded elections in Kolkata Trinamool’s Derek O’Brien has promised his party’s support in the Rajya Sabha ball by ball issue by issue Shoaib Daniyal in Scroll listed four signs that Didi and the erstwhile “Danga Babu” (Mr Riot) were burying the hatchet at least temporarily The Saradha investigation seems to have gone on simmer instead of full-boil It looks like Mukul Roy will escape its clutches The BJP is not harping on the bomb blasts of Burdwan The municipal elections did not happen under an enormous deployment of central forces And Trinamool lent its support to the land boundary bill it had opposed under UPA rule as well as the coal and mines and minerals bill and has given in principle its support to the GST bill Modi desperately wants to pass In politics there are no permanent friends and no permanent enemies But Mamata’s rapprochement raises eyebrows because when she sparred with the BJP she took no prisoners Haridas Pal (useless person) Danga babu gadha (donkey) were just some of the names she had hurled at Narendra Modi When Tripura’s Marxist chief minister met Modi Mamata whose party had boycotted the swearing in of the NDA regime had mocked them as “Boro bhai chhoto bhai (big brother little brother”) Now Big Brother and Big Sister are breaking bread together as if Bhratri-Dwitiya or bhai phonta has come early to Bengal It’s win-win for the two Except there is a third player too – the state BJP But West Bengal’s Assembly elections are not till 2016 Modi needs Mamata’s votes in the Rajya Sabha right now He’s realized that while a fire-breathing Amit Shah can rally the state unit it’s proven quite counterproductive to his ability to pass bills at the national level Shah after promising to be in Bengal every month gave the entire municipal elections a miss And Mamata after conclusively re-establishing her supremacy in Bengal politics in the municipal elections feels more secure to negotiate with Modi from a position of strength without worrying about the state unit nipping at her heels And if she can get a special package for Bengal out of it all she can claim this is all for the good of Bengal The state BJP cried foul after the elections and staged a bandh protesting unfair practices but all their protestations were undone by the chummy photo-ops of Modi and Mamata over the past weekend As The Times of India reported Mamata “overshadowed BJP leaders – Siddhartha Nath Singh Rahul Sinha Samik Bhattacharya and Ritesh Tiwari – who had gone to the airport to welcome Modi” When singer Babul Supriyo pulled off a surprise victory in the Lok Sabha elections Modi rewarded him with a place in his ministry It was a sign that the BJP was going to go all guns blazing in Bengal The state BJP was excited to build on its impressive vote share gain Modi had outlined the party’s strategy – development Saradha and minority appeasement “Mamata is talking about the Bengal model” party candidate Chandan Mitra said “For us that is deindustrialization corruption and gang rape” And he predicted that “as Saradha unravels it will take Mamata with it” The state unit of the BJP historically an also-ran in Bengal was abuzz with activity and energy as party officials excitedly shared stories about people joining in droves Even Muslims they insisted They were ready to step into the main opposition space The municipal elections blanketed the city with their posters and processions while the old warhorses of the CPM and Congress often hired a solitary three-wheeler to roam around neighbourhoods with a hired hand reading out a message All that energy and expense amounted to little gains for the BJP when the results came out Now the only thing Narendra Modi promised the chastened state unit of the BJP was Mamata’s one-time favourite Mukul Roy who had heaped praise on the PM would not be inducted into the BJP That would have hit hard at the state unit’s credibility because Mukul Roy had been one of their prime Saradha targets Saradha is still the Damocles sword But for Modi it is more advantageous right now to keep it dangling rather than bring it down on Didi The CPM is going to town saying “I told you so” Even before the 2015 Lok Sabha elections Sitaram Yechury had told a roadside rally in Kolkata that the war of words between Mamata and Modi was just “noorakusti” or shadow-boxing He reminded the audience Mamata visited Modi with a bouquet in 2002 and the BJP knows it can do “saudagiri” with Trinamool Watch and wait he said – “chunav ke baad bhai bhai” (They will be brothers after the elections) As Modi offered up puja at the Kali temple in Dakshineshwar the state unit of his own party would not be misplaced in thinking that they were the sacrificial lamb in the rapprochement between Modi and Mamata In the Kolkata summer they were the ones left out in the cold UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – A UN-blacklisted North Korean shipping firm has renamed most of its vessels in a bid to
