Champions Trophy 2017: Virat Kohli dismisses reports of rift with Anil Kumble as rumours, speculation

Posted On Nov 19 2019 by

first_imgIndia captain Virat Kohli has dismissed reports of rift with coach Anil Kumble and called it speculation.”There has been lot of speculation and lot of things being written by people without actually being part of the dressing room which is very strange. There are no problems (with coach Anil Kumble). As I said before if something is placed in a process, I don’t understand why people are creating so many speculation about it. It was followed last time as well and nobody created issues. It’s the same process. The team is totally focused on the Champions Trophy.”I honestly don’t even know. People who try to tell me about this, I don’t even want to know about it.” Kohli said on the eve of the high-octane clash against Pakistan at Edgbaston.Kohli further said that the journey with Kumble was really good.”It’s been really good. The whole journey has been good,” Kohli added.Kumble’s position as coach seemingly became untenable after reports first emerged that he did not share a great relationship with the rest of the team. The India captain had reportedly complained to the Committee of Administrators and told them of Kumble’s intimidating approach. According to sources, the players and the coach do not share a very cordial relationship.But the BCCI had said that procedures were being followed in the appointment of the next coach. Last year, the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) had selected Kumble from among a host of other important names.Kumble has enjoyed a lot of success as India coach and has won back five back-to-back Test series, including four at home. Under his tenure, India also defeated New Zealand and England in limited-overs series at home.advertisementIndia are currently in England to defend the Champions Trophy which concludes on June 18.The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had started its hunt to select the new head coach of the senior men’s team. Current coach Kumble’s term expires after the Champions Trophy.Virender Sehwag, Tom Moody, Richard Pybus, Lalchand Rajput and Dodda Ganesh are among six candidates who have applied for the role of the Indian cricket team’s head coach. Incumbent Kumbe has also reapplied.last_img read more

New Zealand on brink of huge Test win vs Sri Lanka

Posted On Nov 16 2019 by

first_imgConcerted pressure from New Zealand’s bowling attack pushed them to the brink of victory in the second Test against Sri Lanka at Hagley Oval in Christchurch on Saturday.Sri Lanka, chasing an improbable 660 for victory, were 231 for six at stumps on the fourth day, with Dilruwan Perera (22) and Suranga Lakmal (16) set to resume on Sunday needing to bat the entire day to save the match and series.The first game in the two-match series ended in a damp draw in Wellington last week.Sri Lanka had been set the target late on Friday after Tom Latham (176) and Henry Nicholls (162 not out) drove New Zealand’s second innings to 585 for four declared.The tourists lost two early wickets in their response but had resumed on Saturday on 24 for two with captain Dinesh Chandimal on 14 and Kusal Mendis on six.Despite a solid start, their hopes of saving the Test effectively ended in the session before tea with the dismissal of Mendis and an injury to Angelo Mathews.Mendis, who helped save the first Test with Mathews with an unbroken 274-run partnership, appeared well set to repeat the dose with Chandimal on Saturday as they thwarted New Zealand for the entire first session.However, the 23-year-old Mendis, who joined India captain Virat Kohli as the only players to surpass 1,000 Test runs in 2018, fell after lunch for 67 to a superb diving catch by Matt Henry at mid-off.The way in which the New Zealanders mobbed the substitute fielder showed how much they valued the wicket, which ended a 117-run partnership between Mendis and Chandimal.Mathews, who top scored with 33 not out in Sri Lanka’s first innings of 104, looked like he would be even more difficult to remove than Mendis before he pulled up after completing a run and immediately clutched at his left hamstring.He received treatment on the field but was clearly hampered and could do nothing but play from the crease and hop when Chandimal called him through for a run.The former captain did not return after the tea break and is expected to have scans later on Saturday, although it is doubtful he will bat on Sunday.advertisementAlso Read | India need 2 wickets on final day to win historic Boxing Day Test vs AustraliaAlso Read | Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami: Trio creates history in 2018Also See:last_img read more


Liverpool easier to play against than Burnley: Southampton’s Romeu

Posted On Nov 16 2019 by

first_imgSouthampton have a better chance of scoring against Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday than they did in their 3-0 loss at Burnley on the opening weekend because the Anfield side does not resort to long balls, midfielder Oriol Romeu has said.Ralph Hasenhuettl’s side struggled to deal with Burnley’s aerial superiority last weekend as the home side scored three times in a 12-minute second half salvo, with long balls being the order of the day to bypass Southampton’s midfield and defence.”It’s easier for us to play against teams who take more risks and play out from the back. There will be more chances to score against Liverpool,” Romeu told the Daily Echo.”Burnley didn’t play anything from the back because it was all long balls which didn’t give us the chance to get higher up the pitch.”The chances will come against Liverpool because they will take more risks and that will give us more opportunities to score goals. Hopefully, we can put them under pressure.”Southampton will be wary of their record against Liverpool, however. They have lost their last four league meetings having conceded 11 goals and scoring only one.Southampton started poorly last season, winning only one of their first 16 games to drop into the relegation zone before eventually finishing 16th, but Romeu is confident they will improve in Hasenhuettl’s first full season.”We are not panicking,” Romeu added. “We need to send the message for everyone to be calm as this isn’t the end of the season. There will be a reaction, I’m sure of that.advertisement”We are all confident that this season is going to be much better, but we just need to follow the way for 90 minutes from the first one until the last one, otherwise it will be tough.”I hope the crowd can be behind us and give us a boost because we need to react after the Burnley game. We need to do better, we need to get a result.”Also Read | Liverpool’s Alisson Becker out injured for ‘next few weeks’: Juergen KloppAlso See:last_img read more

After going down early in 2016, he was given a medical hardship waiver which means OSU could have him for three more years after 2017.

Despite being purely exhibition games, students have been attending the games in massive droves.Of the over a dozen teams that have played so far, a handful have had spring game crowds numbering in the tens of thousands. But one team has stood out from the crowd.Nebraska has wiped the floor with all other spring game crowds so far. The Huskers had approximately 86,000 fans in attendance for their game.Rounding out the top five were Alabama (~62,000), Ohio State (~61,000), Penn State (~61,000), and Clemson (~60,000).Spring Game Attendance86k – Nebraska62k – Alabama61k – Ohio State61k – PSU60k – Clemson51k – Tennessee50k – Oklahoma39k – Florida30k – Notre Dame19k – WVU16k – Kentucky10k – Arkansas8k – Pitt— Pick Six Previews (@PickSixPreviews) April 14, 2019Tennessee and Oklahoma both had crowds of around 50,000, while Florida came in at eighth with 39,000 fans.Notre Dame had 30,000 fans in attendance, and West Virginia rounded out the top 10 with a crowd of 19,000.Two SEC teams reportedly had 10,000 fans or more: Kentucky with 16,000 and Arkansas with 10,000.As for the eye-popping Nebraska attendance figure, it’s clear that fan support has not wavered in the slightest despite the recent slump that the team has found itself in.The expectations for the Huskers football team in 2019 are going to be high as always, but the spring game crowds show that it’ll take a lot more than a 4-8 season to keep them away.last_img read more


New Music Monday: Dexter Story

Posted On Oct 24 2019 by

first_img Editors’ Recommendations Watch This Bugatti Chiron Shatter a World Speed Record at More Than 300 MPH Though he first started touring with bands at age 14, Dexter Story did not release an album under his own name until his late 40s. That record, Seasons, came out in early 2013. If it seems like he was uninvolved with music during the intervening years, let me set the record straight. Story has performed with artists from Wynton Marsalis to Ravi Coltrane to Kamasi Washington, to name just a few. He also founded The Life Force Trio with Carlos Niño and was a member of Build An Ark. Last Friday, he released Wondem, the follow-up to Seasons.The influence of East African music runs throughout the length of Wondem. Though African culture and music have influenced Story throughout his career, Wondem‘s foundations were laid in when Story began arranging music for the Los Angeles-based Ethio Cali ensemble. From there he began exploring Ethiopian music further.Story has performed an extraordinary feat on Wondem, in taking what he learned from his research and combining it with funk, jazz, soul, and even pop. To combine so many styles was a risky endeavor, but Story finds a successful mixture on each track of Wondem. The opening track, “A New Day,” features a bright blast of horns at its start and stays chipper throughout.On Wondem, Dexter Story has taken his accumulated knowledge and familiarity with a host of different styles and combined them with East African influences to produce a soulful fusion record.Wondem is out now through Soundway Records and available on Amazon, iTunes, and Soundway’s online store.

Ensure proper mechanism to manage plastic waste CPCB told

Posted On Oct 18 2019 by

first_imgNEW DELHI: The National Green Tribunal has said there is no proper mechanism for plastic waste management in the country and directed the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) to take necessary action in this regard. A bench headed by NGT Chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel said mere issuance of directions by the CPCB is not adequate and compliance needs to be overseen. “There is no proper mechanism for plastic waste management which was being dumped in open or burnt in brick kilns resulting in pollution. Action taken by the CPCB is the issuance of directions… Even with regard to illegal import, CPCB as a statutory regulator can take up the matter with the authorities concerned,” the tribunal said. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderThe tribunal directed the CPCB to take further steps in the matter accordingly and file a report by e-mail before October 16. The CPCB had earlier informed the tribunal that the import of plastic waste must be restricted as the hazardous waste generated in the country is to the extent of 26,000 tons a day and the same is not properly managed. The Plastic Waste Management Rules, 2016, as amended in 2018, prohibit open burning of plastic waste and permit its recycling only if it conforms to Indian Standard: IS 14534:1998, it said. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsThe tribunal was hearing a plea filed by one Amit Jain, who alleged that cheap waste paper and road sweep waste is imported from the US, Europe etc., for burning in brick kilns, causing land and air pollution. “Large plastic waste yards can be seen near recycled paper mills. Import of cheap waste paper is hazardous and is affecting the environment. The import is to the extent of 9,00,000 tons of waste which generates hazardous plastic,” the plea said.last_img read more

UzbekKyrgyz tensions will continue without justice for victims of violence UN told

Posted On Oct 11 2019 by

26 September 2011Ethnic tensions between Uzbeks and Kyrgyz since deadly clashes last year will not be resolved until there is a full investigation into the violence and the perpetrators are punished, Uzbekistan’s Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister told the General Assembly today. Elyor Ganiev told the Assembly’s annual general debate that the clashes of June 2010 have become “a serious challenge to peace and stability in the Central Asian region.”Hundreds of people were killed amid inter-ethnic clashes focused mainly in southern Kyrgyzstan, and an estimated 375,000 others were displaced from their homes.Kyrgyzstan set up an inquiry commission into the violence and last week Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, in a meeting with Kyrgyz President Roza Otunbaeva, encouraged the country to implement the recommendations contained in the commission’s report.But Mr. Ganiev said that “no political and legal findings were made to date with regard to all those forces and specific individuals who ordered, organized and perpetrated the crimes.“Until these investigations are not carried out up to the end and the perpetrators – irrespective of their nationality, background and position – are not punished, it is difficult to expect the restoration of trust and cooperation between the Uzbek community and the Kyrgyz.” read more

Mother in FGM case betrayed threeyearold daughter by mutilating her as she

Posted On Sep 25 2019 by

The first person to be convicted of FMG in Britain “betrayed” her three-year-old daughter by mutilating her, a judge said, as she jailed her for 13 yearsThe 37-year-old Ugandan woman was found guilty of cutting her three-year-old daughter at her home during the 2017 summer holidays. After helping a “witch” carry out the practice, she then cast a series of black magic spells.The woman, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, was sentenced to 11 years in prison for cutting her toddler daughter, and an extra two years for indecent images of children and animal pornography as police raided her home following her arrest.Jailing her, Mrs Justice Whipple said: “The person mutilated was your daughter. She was just three years old when you cut her. FGM has long been against our law, and let’s be clear: FGM is a form of child abuse.“It involves deliberate physical mutilation. It is a barbaric practice and a serious crime.“You committed this offence at home, where she should have felt safe, and as her mother you betrayed her trust in you as her protector.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Polaroid Lab Turns Smartphone Snaps Into Instant Photos

Posted On Sep 19 2019 by

first_imgStay on target Like live theater and paper books, printed pictures provide a sense of presence that movies, e-books, and digital images lack.It’s that feeling—plus a hint of nostalgia—that keeps Polaroid in business.Now, the company is launching a portable printer* that turns smartphone snaps into instant photos.“Unlimited cloud storage can actually be your memories’ worst enemy, causing your digital photos to skyrocket in numbers and end up falling into a void of oblivion,” Polaroid CEO Oskar Smolokowski said in a statement.With a camera in every pocket, people are taking more pictures than ever. But it’s easy to lose track of special moments among a sea of online pixels.Enter Polaroid Lab.The idea, according to Smolokowski, is to turn precious pictures into tangible photographs, “bringing them into the world as something you can hold in your hand and store on the fridge door rather than in the cloud.”Simply select an image from the Polaroid Originals app, place your handset on top of the machine, press a button, and voila! An instant photo (that you don’t need to shake).Using a combination of mirrors, light, and “the unique Polaroid chemistry,” snaps are recast as instant pictures (via Polaroid)The appliance uses a combination of mirrors, light, and “the unique Polaroid chemistry” to recast snapshots as a leave-to-develop, white-rimmed keepsake.Starting in October, you can make pictures instead of just taking them with the $130 Polaroid Lab, compatible with iPhone 6S/iOS 11 and above, Android 7 or higher, and current Samsung, Huawei, Google Pixel, and One Plus models.Sign up for the company newsletter “to get your hands on one first.”*According to Polaroid, its new device is “not a printer, not a scanner, just an instant formula for timeless images.More on Geek.com:Polaroid Launches ‘Stranger Things’ Edition Camera (And It’s ‘Upside Down’)Snap Digital Camera Takes Polaroid Back To Its Instant Photo DaysBest Photography Deals: DSLR Courses, Photoshop Training, More Polaroid Launches ‘Stranger Things’ Edition Camera (And It’s ‘Upside Down’)Snap digital camera takes Polaroid back to its instant photo days last_img read more

The 7th annual Workstation Face-Off challenged the eight participating 3D advanced imaging providers to load, process and interpret five computed tomography (CT) studies within an allotted period of time, which varied from two to four minutes per case. Jeffrey Mendel, M.D., of Tufts University School of Medicine, demonstrated the Ziosoft software applications and was able to showcase the ease of use of the Ziosoft system by completing all five CT cases effortlessly within the time allotted. “As a new user to the Ziostation thin-client software applications, I was able to quickly learn the software. I am impressed by the quality of the images, the efficiency of the software and the powerful advanced applications that Ziosoft offers,” said Dr. Mendel.Ziosoft’s Ziostation system utilized a true thin-client application with CPU-based processing. The Ziostation did not require any proprietary or specialized hardware unlike some of the other advanced visualization solutions.For more information: www.ziosoftinc.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享center_img Technology | Artificial Intelligence | June 20, 2019 TeraRecon Receives First-of-Kind FDA Determination for Northstar AI Results Explorer Advanced visualization and artificial intelligence (AI) technology provider TeraRecon has successfully completed a U.S… read more Feature | Molecular Imaging | July 01, 2019 | By Sharvari Rale Transformations in Molecular Imaging Herald Entry to Novel Applications Diagnostic procedures have always been a cornerstone of early prognosis and patient triaging. read more Related Content Technology | Advanced Visualization | June 13, 2019 Materialise Receives FDA Clearance for Cardiovascular Planning Software Suite Three-dimensional (3-D) printing software and solutions company Materialise has received U.S. Food and Drug… read more News | Advanced Visualization | July 03, 2019 TeraRecon Unveils iNtuition AI Data Extractor Artificial Intelligence (AI) and advanced visualization company TeraRecon announced its new iNtuition AI Data Extractor… read more Technology | Virtual and Augmented Reality | June 10, 2019 Medivis SurgicalAR Gets FDA Clearance Medivis announced that its augmented reality (AR) technology platform for surgical applications, SurgicalAR, has… read more Feature | Henry Ford Hospital | May 21, 2019 | Dave Fornell, Editor Innovations in Radiotherapy and Radiology at Henry Ford Hospital Henry Ford Hospital thought leaders regularly speak at the radiation oncology and radiology conferences about new res read morelast_img read more
