first_imgAn all round performance by Rajasthan’s South African recruit helped them beat Mumbai by seven wickets during an IPL match at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on Friday. Score | PhotosBotha finished with impressive figures of 2-0-6-3 and then put 44 runs on board to help Rajasthan beat Mumbai convincingly in the 34th IPL match of the season.Like Mumbai, Rajasthan too lost their opener early in the innings with Rahul Dravid falling to Munaf Patel ball in the fifth over of the innings when the Rajasthan total was 17/1.Post that wicket Rajasthan opener Shane Watson and one down batsman Johan Botha, who took three Mumbai wickets, got on with a partnership. The two were in no hurry as 95-run target was well within the reach for Rajasthan.But after the two had put 39 runs for the third wicket a Lasith Malinga ball got the better of Shane Watson 26 with wicketkeeper Davy Jacob performing the final honours. Rajasthan were 56/2 post his wicket.Eventually, Johan Botha fell after scoring a fine 44 off 39 balls decorating his innings with two fours and one over the fence shot. A Munaf Patel ball crashed against the top of his stump in the 18th over when Rajasthan were batting on 90.Then Ross Taylor and Ashok Menaria scored the winning runs for their team with 11 balls to spare. Rajasthan won by 7 wickets.Mumbai inningsRajasthan bowlers struck thick and fast as Mumbai could only manage to score 94/8 in their 20 overs against Rajasthan during their IPL match.advertisementRajasthan captain Shane Warne won the toss and elected to field. And Warne was a happy man as his paceman Amit Singh scalped Mumbai opener Davy Jacobs on the first ball of the fourth over when the Mumbai total was 22.There was more room for celebrations early in the innings as Mumbai captain and Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar fell to Ashok Menaria in the 5th over with keeper Dishant Yagnik finishing off with some fine stumping when the team total was 28.Clearly the Mumbai batsmen were having a tough time at the Sawai Mansingh wickets as in the 9th over another wicket fell. And this time Menaria got the better of Mumbai’s in-form batsman Ambati Rayudu with a caught and bowled decision when the visitors were batting on 46.The last ball of the 10th saw Rohit Sharma depart with Rajasthan skipper Shane Warne scalping him on 13. Mumbai fell to 50/4.Just when Aussie Andrew Symonds and West Indian Kieron Pollard looked set and were beginning to score runs, Rajasthan’s South African offie Johan Botha struck to berak their 18-run stand. He trapped Pollard leg-before and Mumbai were down to 68/5.Symonds too could not stay for long and Botha came around to scalp him on 17 and a ball later got the better of R Sathish and Mumbai were looking down the barrel with 82/7.The first ball of the 19th over saw Mumbai tail-ender Lasith Malinga walk back, bowled by Amit Singh on 1 and Mumbai were reduced to 83/8.Finally, Mumbai could only manage to score 94/8 in their 20 overs. The score could have been lesser had Harbhajan Singh not hit a six off the last ball of the innings in Shane Watson’s over. That was the only other six in the Mumbai innings apart from Davy Jacobs six in the third over, which too came off Watson.last_img read more

Euro 2016: England into last 16 after goalless draw against Slovakia

first_imgEngland qualified for the round of 16 at the European Championship after being held to a 0-0 draw by Slovakia on a frustrating Monday night for Roy Hodgson’s team. (Euro 2016 – Full Coverage|Points Table) The result meant England was leapfrogged by Wales at the top of the Group B, after Gareth Bale helped his team beat Russia 3-0 in the other Group B match.SLOVAKIA IN THE HUNTEngland created but failed to take a series of chances against a very defensive Slovakia side that can still reach the knockout stages as one of the four best third-place teams. (Also read: Wales create history, into last 16 in maiden European Championship) Slovakia had never kept a clean sheet in six previous games at a major tournament and had lost its three previous matches against England.With England needing a win to be sure of topping its group and avoiding a potentially dangerous opponent in the last 16, Hodgson took a gamble by making six changes. Captain Wayne Rooney was among those dropped to the bench.Following good performances in a 2-1 win over Wales, Hodgson started Jamie Vardy and Daniel Sturridge up front, with defender Gary Cahill getting the captain’s armband.Earning first starts at the tournament were Nathaniel Clyne, Ryan Bertrand, Jack Wilshere, Jordan Henderson, Sturridge and Vardy, while Slovakia coach Jan Kozak named an unchanged team from its win over Russia.Wilshere and Lallana looked to have proved Hodgson right with a bright start to the game.Quickly releasing the ball, Lallana and Wilshere soon set a fast tempo, with England enjoying plenty of possession and limiting Slovakia to harmless counterattacks.advertisementEngland first went close in the ninth minute after a scramble in the box when Sturridge could not make the most of Vardy’s clever pass and saw his shot blocked by right back Peter Pekarik.After Lallana sent a shot wide from the edge of the area, Henderson had an angled effort blocked by left-back Tomas Hubocan.KOZACIK SHINES FOR SLOVAKIASlovakia’s defenders kept their team in the game, while goalkeeper Matus Kozacik made some decisive saves. He first denied Vardy when the Leicester striker was superbly played through by Henderson in the 17th minute, and then blocked Lallana’s fine shot in the 33rd.The pressure continued after the break as chants of “Rooney, Rooney” by the England fans resonated around the stadium.But England was nearly caught out when Chris Smalling failed to control the ball properly with his chest as he made an attempted back-pass, forcing keeper Joe Hart to scramble to the ball to thwart the danger.At the other end, Kozacik made another big save to block an angled shot from Clyne on the break, and England fans finally got what they wanted when Rooney came in for Wilshere in the 56th minute.Hodgson then replaced Lallana with Dele Alli, who had an immediate impact but saw his goal-bound volley cleared off the line by Liverpool and Slovakia defender Martin Skrtel.England continued to push in vain until the end. Sturridge made way for Harry Kane in the final 15 minutes but the siege of Slovakia’s area remained ineffective.last_img read more

Fifa urges Thailand to release Bahraini footballer Hakeem al-Araibi

first_imgFifa has urged Thailand’s government to immediately release the Bahraini footballer Hakeem al-Araibi, who has been held in a Bangkok prison for nearly two months and fears he will be tortured and possibly killed if he is sent back to his home country.In a letter to Prayut Chan-o-cha, the prime minister of Thailand, Fifa warns that Araibi is “at serious risk of mistreatment in his home country”. It also stresses that Araibi should not have been arrested in Thailand while on his honeymoon because he was granted political asylum by Australia in 2017 after being tortured in Bahrain. Thailand Share on Pinterest Facebook Araibi was arrested in Thailand on 27 November on vandalism charges because of an Interpol red notice which had erroneously been issued at the request of Bahrain – contradicting Interpol’s own regulations that notices will not be issued “if the status of refugee or asylum-seeking has been confirmed”. Despite Interpol lifting the notice on 4 December, Araibi’s detention was extended for 60 days, pending a court verdict on whether to extradite him to Bahrain.However, the footballer believes Bahrain’s determination to extradite him is connected to comments he made in Australia three years’ ago about the torture he underwent in a Bahrain jail in 2012. Araibi also accused one of Bahrain’s most powerful figures, Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim al-Khalifa – a member of Bahrain’s ruling royal family and president of Asia’s governing body for football, who at the time was in the running for Fifa president – of discriminating against Shia Muslims and using his power to punish pro-democracy athletes who had protested against the royal family during the Arab spring in 2011.“This is nothing to do with my conviction, Bahrain wants me back to punish me, because I talked to the media in 2016 about the terrible human rights and about how Sheikh Salman is a very bad man who discriminates against Shia Muslims,” said Araibi, who once played for the Bahrain national team. “I am so scared of being sent back to Bahrain, so scared because 100% they will arrest me, they will torture me again, possibly they will kill me.”Sayed Ahmed Alwadaei, the director of advocacy at the human rights watchdog Bahrain Institute for Rights and Democracy, said Fifa must do more to help secure the footballer’s release. “While Fifa has reached out to the Thai authorities, they have yet to question their own senior vice-president Sheikh Salman. Why has he remained silent?” he said.“Fifa must also ensure that there will be consequences for both Bahrain and Thailand’s national teams if this persecution doesn’t end immediately. Fifa must do everything in their power to save Hakeem’s life,” he added. “Every second he spends in detention should be counted as a failure of Fifa to put its full weight behind this player.” Football politics Pinterest Australia sport Topics Share on Facebook Fifa Share on Twitter Share via Emailcenter_img Bahrain Bahraini refugee, Hakeem Al-Araibi, who lives in Australia, has been detained in Bangkok on a disputed Interpol warrant. Photograph: Hakeem Al-Araibi/The Guardian Share on Messenger Share on WhatsApp Share on LinkedIn ‘Please help me’: refugee footballer Hakeem al-Araibi tells of his Thai jail ordeal “Mr Al-Araibi is currently being detained in prison in Thailand awaiting the outcome of extradition proceedings to Bahrain,” Fifa’s general secretary, Fatma Samoura says in the letter. “This situation should not have arisen, in particular, since Al-Arabi now lives, works and plays as a professional footballer in Australia, where he has been accorded refugee status.“When according refugee status to Mr Al-Araibi, the Australian authorities concluded that he is at serious risk of mistreatment in his home country,” she adds. “Fifa is therefore respectively urging Thailand to take the necessary steps to ensure Mr Al-Araibi is allowed to return safely to Australia at the earliest possible moment.”Fifa has also asked the Thais for a meeting with senior figures in its government and the players’ union Fifpro so the case can be resolved “in a humane manor”.In an interview with the Guardian from Bangkok Remand prison, Araibi said he was “terrified” and “losing hope” after being imprisoned since late November. “How can they keep me locked up like this?” he added. “Please help me, please. In Bahrain there are no human rights and no safety for people like me.” Read more Twitter Hakeem al-Araibi Reuse this contentlast_img read more

Thunder Bay First Nations leader pledge to fight racism in Ontario city

first_imgThe city of Thunder Bay, Ont., and First Nations leaders in the region have signed a pledge to fight racism in the northern Ontario community, which has been plagued by tensions between Indigenous residents and local police.The statement acknowledges systemic racism exists in Thunder Bay and says it must be challenged by all members of the community.“We recognize the urgent need to improve relations among the Indigenous population who reside in and visit (Thunder Bay) to access education, medical and health care, employment, cultural and recreational activities, and the non-Indigenous population,” the statement reads.The statement signed by the city, Fort William First Nation and the Nishnawbe Aski Nation states the need to improve safety for Indigenous students attending school in Thunder Bay. Indigenous students from outside of Thunder Bay must relocate to the city to complete high school or post-secondary education, the statement said.It calls for leaders to develop an anti-racism campaign for the city and includes a promise to work together on short-term measures to protect students for the coming school year.The statement also calls for all three communities to band together and provide dedicated space for Indigenous gatherings, and demands that the Ontario and federal governments provide funding to support their efforts.First Nations leaders say Thunder Bay has recently seen several acts of violent racism against Indigenous peoples, including the case of an Indigenous woman who died after being struck by a trailer hitch earlier this year.Barbara Kentner, 34, told police she and her sister were walking in a residential neighbourhood when someone threw the hitch from a moving car. Her sister, Melissa Kentner, said she heard someone in the vehicle say: “I got one.”Kentner underwent emergency surgery after the incident Jan. 29, but never recovered.In a meeting last month, Grand Chief Alvin Fiddler of the Nishnawbe Aski Nation also cited the deaths of seven First Nations high school students between 2000 and 2011.The issue received national attention after the bodies of a 17-year-old girl and 14-year-old boy were found in a river in May. Local police chiefs have criticized the handing of both deaths by Thunder Bay police.Grand Chief Alvin Fiddler of the Nishnawbe Aski Nation, a group of 49 First Nations communities in northern Ontario, said in an email that the statement represents a commitment to “peaceful co-existence and reconciliation.”A Statistics Canada report from June states 29 per cent of all anti-Indigenous hate crimes across Canada in 2015 were committed in Thunder Bay.last_img read more

Sustainable development at core of Fijis national agenda Prime Minister tells UN

“The world must act quickly and decisively to reverse the environmental degradation of our oceans and seas and the reckless and irresponsible use of their precious resources,” emphasized Mr. Bainimarama as he took the podium.Calling it “a centrepiece of the 71st session and one of our most critical priorities” the Prime Minister said that Fiji would be co-hosting with Sweden, the 2017 UN Conference to Support the Implementation of Sustainable Development, which would focus on the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goal 14 – the conservation and sustainable use of oceans, seas and marine resources.“For a small island developing State [SIDS] such as Fiji, this is as pressing as the need to address the challenges of climate change,” he stated, “and deal with the extreme weather events and rising seas that pose such a threat to our way of life in the SIDS and other vulnerable parts of the world.”He pointed out that many millions of people in maritime and coastal communities the world over are looking to Fiji for decisive action on the growing crisis of pollution, overfishing and the loss of marine habitats, saying we “must not fail them.”Mr. Bainimarama said that Fiji came to the UN “with a plea to all nations that have yet to do so to ratify the Paris Agreement on Climate Change.” He noted proudly that Fiji was the first nation in the world to ratify the Agreement and lodge the ratification instruments.“But,” he continued “we also come with the message that Paris must be merely the first step. We are alarmed by scientific predictions that the 2 degree Celsius cap on global warming over pre-industrial levels agreed to in Paris is not enough to save us.”Seven months ago, Fiji was struck by the biggest tropical cyclone ever to make landfall in the southern hemisphere. The Prime Minister called it a terrifying glimpse into the future predicted by experts.“Cyclone Winston – packing winds of more than 300 kilometres an hour – killed 44 of our people and left many thousands homeless,” he spelled out. “Mercifully, it spared our main tourism areas – our principal source of income – so our wider economy remained intact. But if this is what awaits us as global warming triggers weather events that are more frequent and more extreme, then God help us,” he added.In common with other small island developing States, Fiji is facing a nightmare scenario in which “a single event scoring a direct hit could wipe out our economy and set us back for decades.” This would make it impossible for the nation to meet the SDGs. In his address, the Prime Minister stressed the message that the 2-degree cap is not enough. “We need the world to go one better and embrace the 1.5 degree cap that we are calling for in the Suva Declaration by members of the Pacific Islands Development Forum,” he stressed, adding the need for deeper cuts in carbon emissions and more decisive global action than was currently being witnessed.“But as a first step,” he continued “I appeal to you all to ratify the Paris Agreement. And to turn your backs on what I have termed ‘the coalition of the selfish’ – those countries that would see the vulnerable nations battered and submerged rather than alter their pampered, carbon-driven lifestyles.” read more

GuineaBissau Political crisis requires continued UN presence Security Council told

“After several years of long-term investment in the stability of Guinea-Bissau, it is time to consolidate and reap the dividends of our concerted efforts. It is vital that we accompany this process to its completion,” Modibo Ibrahim Touré, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative in Guinea-Bissau told the Security Council. Mr. Touré stressed the importance for the Council to continue to reaffirm the centrality of the Conakry Agreement, reiterating its support to the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) in its mediation efforts.The Conakry Agreement of 14 October 2016 provides for, among other things, the appointment of a consensual Prime Minister.According to the UN Department of Political Affairs (DPA), Guinea-Bissau has been plagued by chronic political instability since gaining independence in 1974. The DPA provides support and oversight to the UN Integrated Peacebuilding Office for Guinea-Bissau (UNIOGBIS), a special political mission first established in 1999 following a two-year civil war in the country. Since mid-2016, the Mission is headed by Mr.Touré. The main priorities of UNIOGBIS are to support efforts to consolidate constitutional order, further political dialogue and national reconciliation, encourage security sector reform, and promote respect for human rights and the rule of law. On political developments, Mr.Touré said President Jose Mario Vaz dismissed former Prime Minister Umaro Sissoco Embaló and replaced him with Artur Silva.“The absence of a functioning and stable Government for more than three years has limited the ability of UNIOGBIS to effectively and sustainably implement some of its mandated tasks,” said Mr.Touré.Until the completion of the electoral cycle in 2019, Guinea-Bissau remains a country that requires a dedicated UN presence to prevent a further deterioration in the political and security situation at the national level and to avoid any negative spill-over to its neighbours and creating a fertile environment for trafficking to thrive, he noted.“It will be important for the United Nations to remain engaged in peacebuilding efforts in the country while supporting ECOWAS intervention to resolve the political crisis for at least one more year,” he said.Lastly, throughout the past year, the presence of ECOWAS Mission in Guinea Bissau has consistently acted as a deterrent to unauthorized military action and a stabilizing factor in the country, he said, calling on the Council and international donors to support the continued presence of ECOMIB through to the holding of a presidential election in 2019, including by advocating for the renewal of its mandate and the provision of the financial support needed to maintain its deployment. read more

Duplex occupants escape latenight fire in Bagley Downs neighborhood

first_imgVancouver firefighters late Tuesday night were at the scene of a duplex fire in the area of Falk Road and Gibbons Street, in the Bagley Downs neighborhood near Parsley Community Center.Firefighters responded about 11:40 p.m. Tuesday. The first one to arrive radioed that flames were visible but there was too much smoke to see exactly what was burning, according to emergency radio traffic monitored at The Columbian.Firefighters said it was a duplex and, five minutes later, that “all occupants are out of both residences.”A hydrant was nearby. After a backup safety crew was organized, firefighters went inside and said they found no one. Also, occupants of both units said no one was inside.Officials blocked traffic on Falk at Gibbons and Plomondon Street as they brought their engines and hoses to the blaze.Firefighters said just before midnight that it was under control. The fire was confined to the garage and smoke leaked into the living area.Firefighters then focused on finding and dousing areas where flames might have reached in the building, and watching for flareups.Minutes later, a firefighter asked for paramedics with an AMR Northwest ambulance crew to check one occupant who had breathing difficulties.The cause of the fire remains undetermined. A preliminary damage estimate came in at $20,000 between the structure and contents. John Branton: 360-735-4513 or john.branton@columbian.com.last_img read more

Infosys meltdown This is how much Murthy Nilekani and other promoters lost

first_imgN R Narayana Murthy, Nandan Nilekani and Kris GopalakrishnanReutersThe promoters of the country’s second largest IT company, Infosys, have lost around Rs 4,320.70 crore after Monday’s trade, with co-founder N R Narayana Murthy losing the most. The Bangalore-based software company’s stock plunged around 18 percent in two successive sessions, following the exit of chief executive officer (CEO) Vishal Sikka on Friday last week.On Monday, the Infosys shares closed at Rs 873.50 on the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE), down 5.37 percent from its previous close, lowest since August 2014.In absolute terms, the software service exporter has lost Rs 33,914.71 crore of its market capitalisation as of Monday’s closing, after sell-off was triggered Friday morning. The company’s market value fell from Rs 2,34,554.78 crore on Thursday’s close to Rs 2,00,640.07 crore at the close of Monday’s trade on BSE.The promoters of the Bangalore-based IT major hold 12.74 percent stake in the firm at the end of June 2017. Former Infosys CEO and MD Kris Gopalakrishnan along with his wife Sudha Gopalakrishnan, lost about Rs 1,081.87 crore.

Vote to drive Modi out of power

first_imgChopra (North Dinajpur): With just hours to go before the polls, Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee trained guns on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said if he is taking credit for the air strike, then he should also take responsibility for the killing of 40 jawans who lost their lives in a terror strike in Pulwama on February 14.Addressing an election rally in Chopra on Wednesday afternoon, Banerjee said: “This time it is a very important election. This election is to defeat the BJP. It is to drive out the BJP from power… This election is to make sure that Narendra Modi can never be the Prime Minister of the country again. We must ensure that they (BJP) never come back.” Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataShe further said it is most unfortunate that Modi is taking credit for the air strike. “It is a shame that Modi had asked the first-time voters in an election meeting to exercise their franchise in favour of BJP keeping in mind the action of the Indian Army. We are all proud of the Army and Modi is taking credit for their feats. He should then also take responsibility for the death of the jawans and will have to answer whose callousness had led to the unfortunate incident. The Centre had the information that there could be an attack but still no action was taken to save their lives,” she asked. She also alleged that all the institutions have lost their sanctity because of constant intervention from the saffron party. “The integrity and credibility of the agencies are being questioned because of BJP,” she maintained.

They have now come to get votes and win the election.” The Chief Minister stated that in the past four-and-a-half-years, Modi had not done anything for India. “Note ban is a curse and has affected thousands of poor people. Many have lost their jobs. The unemployment is mounting and he had made a false promise that 2 crore people will get jobs per year. The economic condition of the country has turned from bad to worse. But he is unperturbed and busy in making foreign trips.” Banerjee urged people not to waste their votes by casting them in favour of BJP, CPI(M) or Congress. “Two Congress leaders, one in Berhampore and another in Jangipur are receiving support from the RSS. Congress gets support from BJP and CPI(M). A Congress worker attends his party meetings in the morning, CPI(M) in the afternoon and BJP in the evenings,” she alleged. The TMC supremo said Amar Singh Rai, the local candidate, is a son of the soil and will do all-round development in Darjeeling. Chopra falls under Darjeeling Lok Sabha seat where the election will be held on April 18.last_img read more

According to the rumor, there will be a new panel in settings that will allow users to control video aspects like resolution, HDR, or brightness.The iPad will also reportedly have a new magnetic connector for accessories on the its back, which we already saw. We don’t know what features this new connector will provide to third parties beyond allowing physical keyboards to be connected while the iPad is in portrait mode (which, by the way, opens the door for a cool retro mini-arcade cabinet — just saying, third-party manufacturers!).Lastly, the new Apple Pencil 2 will not need to be connected to a physical port to work. Since Apple will likely drop the Lightning Port from its new iPad Pro 2018 in favor of USB-C, the new Pencil will automatically pair and charge wirelessly, just like the AirPods.Stay tuned for more iPad Pro rumors as we get closer to launch, which should be sometime later this month.Surface Pro 6 vs. iPad Pro: What Should You Buy?iPad Pro Rumors: What to Expect from Apple’s Next TabletBest iPad Apps – Fun, Useful, Must Have Apps for Your Tablet by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeKelley Blue Book5 Mid-engine Corvettes That Weren’tKelley Blue BookUndoGrepolis – Free Online GameGamers Around the World Have Been Waiting for this GameGrepolis – Free Online GameUndoTODAYPolice Identify Girl Licking Ice Cream Tub In Viral VideoTODAYUndoMy Food and FamilyHealthy, Homemade Drunken Thai Noodles In Just 20 MinutesMy Food and FamilyUndoVerizon WirelessThis new phone will blow your mind.Verizon WirelessUndo247 SportsThe Highest-Paid NBA Players In 2019, Ranked247 SportsUndoAdvertisementlast_img read more
