Sanju Samson’s 55-ball 102 not out for the Royals went in vain as Warner stamped his class in the 2019 Indian Premier League once again.Rajasthan Royals had every reason to be optimistic. Before Friday, they had never lost a game after scoring over 195 in the first innings. Samson’s hundred had given Rajasthan the momentum and SRH, who were destroyed by Andre Russell at the Eden Gardens, would have felt the pressure of a high chase.Pressure? What’s that! At leas that was David Warner’s attitude when he walked out and started attacking the RR bowlers from the word go. Sunrisers Hyderabad scored 54 off the first 5 overs; Warner had scored 45 of them. March 29 marked the end of Warner’s (and Steve Smith’s) ball-tampering ban and he was in the mood to celebrate.A David Warner hundred was on the cards but Ben Stokes ensured Sanju Samson’s hundred continued to be the only hundred of the new season after 8 matches. Warner and his opening partner Bairstow, however, had done the damage by then – they had added 110 off only 9.4 overs in a frenetic opening partnership.Bairstow departed 7 runs later in the 11th over but Vijay Shankar joined Kane Williamson and kept the momentum going for the Sunrisers Hyderabad. However, the Royals were not done yet.Jaydev Unadkat, brought into the attack surprisingly late, removed Kane Williamson in the 15th over. SRH still needed 34 off the final 5 overs when Manish Pandey joined Shankar in the middle.advertisementThe tone for the evening was really set by Sanju Samson, who shared a 119-run stand with Rahane for the second wicket. Rashid Khan brought the Hyderabad crowd on its feet when he dismissed Jos Buttler in his first over.Undaunted by the big blow, Samson took on the aggressor’s role while Rahane played some sterling shots. Once Rahane fell for 70, Samson switched gears and raced away to his second IPL hundred off only 54 balls.Also Read | IPL 2019: David Warner celebrates end of ball-tampering ban by taking Orange CapAlso Read | Sanju Samson joins elite Indian list with 2nd Indian Premier League hundredFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for Sports news, scores and updates.Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

Category: laxaiplyfgakyiex 12member delegation of TMC MPs meets Goyal over key rail projects

first_imgNew Delhi: A 12 member delegation of Trinamool Parliamentarians, led by Lok Sabha leader Sudip Bandyopadhyay urged the Union Rail Minister Piyush Goyal to address rail issues in the different parts of the state.The delegation has also submitted a written letter to Goyal where they mentioned the electrification of a stretch of 6.2 km area, from Manigram station up-to Sagardighi plant area, in the Farakka zone. This is an ongoing project of the Indian Railways and needs to be completed on a priority basis. Also Read – How a psychopath killer hid behind the mask of a devout laity!The second issue is the commissioning of the Nalhati bye-pass line connecting Chatra station with Takipur on Howrah division of Eastern Railway. It is necessary because Panchwara North mines will move to the Sagardighi Thermal Power Plant (installed capacity 1600mw+upcoming 660mw). This will ensure the direct movement of coal rakes without the necessity of change in the direction of the engine. RVNL has been already entrusted with the job. Another issue is the rail linkage of Pakur (Nagarnabi) and Pachawara Rail. TMC MPs emphasised the essentiality of supply of coal from Pachwara (North) coal mines of WBPDCL to the Sagardighi TPS. Also Read – Encounter under way in Pulwama, militant killedInduction and ensuring availability of more number of BOBRN Rakes (Bottom Discharge Hopper Wagons) for faster loading and unloading of Coal rakes at the Sargardighi Thermal Power Plant, Bakreswar TPP and Kolaghat TPS of WBPDCL is also another important issue among the mentioned issues. Also, the members urged the rail minister, erstwhile coal minister to look into the matter of average monthly availability was only 323 rakes during the last two months, as against the requirement of 510 rakes, which is badly affecting the transportation of sufficient quantum of coal required for smooth the functioning of Thermal Power Stations of WBPDCL. Goyal assured of prompt intervention, confirmed the Trinamool quarter. Earlier the MPs also met the coal minister Pralhad Joshi and road and transport minister Nitin Gadkari earlier this week to discuss the pending projects in West Bengal and urged them to speed up.last_img read more

Category: laxaiplyfgakyiex Child protection committees set up in over 40000 villages

first_imgKolkata: In a significant move to counter the challenges posed by various social evils against children, the Bengal government has set up child protection committees (CPC) in more than 40,000 villages across the state.One of the main objectives of the initiative taken by the Mamata Banerjee government is to ensure that there is a mechanism in place at the grassroot level, so that the children are protected from being abused. “We have so far been able to set up CPCs at 40,000 villages across the state and are in the process of starting 18,000 more CPCs in other villages as well. We have a plan to set up CPCs at all blocks and village levels to ensure that there is not a single incident of child abuse. These CPCs will monitor the villages to create a protective environment for children,” said Shashi Panja, minister of state for Women and Child Development and Social Welfare. Also Read – Centuries-old Durga Pujas continue to be hit among revellers”Every child is special and we need to ensure that a child’s voice is heard. Our department is committed to ensure that a child does not become a victim of abuse or atrocities under any circumstance. The primary job of the CPCs would be to evolve a mechanism for ensuring child protection,” she added. It may be mentioned here that India is home to the largest child population in the world and more than 40 percent of Indian children are vulnerable. They are subject to abuse, exploitation, deprivation and neglect. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari PujaTo fight all sorts of social evils, an Integrated Child Protection Scheme (ICPS) has been introduced in the state to create and spread awareness among people, so that children can be provided a safe environment.

One of the serious menaces in the society is child trafficking. To check such incidents, the state government has also introduced a plan of action to combat human trafficking. The CPCs, with the help of child welfare police officers, conduct surveillance to prevent trafficking of children.last_img read more

Category: laxaiplyfgakyiex No improvement in rate of Romanian babies abandoned at birth UN report

Around 4,000 newborn babies were abandoned in Romanian maternity hospitals immediately after delivery in 2004 – 1.8 per cent of all newborns – according to the survey supported by the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the Ministry of Health and carried out in over 150 medical institutions. “Unfortunately, young mothers going into hospitals are confronted with conservative attitudes and practices,” UNICEF Representative in Romania Pierre Poupard said. “The system remains very traditional and penalizes the poor and marginalized.” The report, The Situation of Child Abandonment in Romania, finds that many of the mothers who abandon their children are very young, poorly educated and living in extreme poverty. The percentage of abandoned babies who are born underweight (34 per cent) is four times higher than the norm for Romania (8.5 per cent). The study calls for the development of appropriate indicators and effective monitoring and evaluation measures to ensure steady improvements in the quality of basic services for children and families – a bulwark against child abandonment. The new legislation promotes a holistic approach to child protection, with responsibilities shared across sectors such as health, education and social welfare and integrated services within communities. read more

Category: laxaiplyfgakyiex Household debt hits new record but also Canadians a little richer StatsCan

Household debt hits new record, but also Canadians a little richer: StatsCan OTTAWA – Canadians are more in hock today than ever before, Statistics Canada said Thursday in releasing fresh data on household debt.The new report shows household debt to annual disposable income reached a new high at 164.6 per cent, from 163.3 per cent the previous quarter.Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney has named rising household debt a key risk to the Canadian economy, but noted this week he was encouraged that credit growth appeared to be slowing.Still, Carney has also said he expects the debt-to-income ratio to keep rising over the next couple of years. That is in part because of a lag in time between purchase decisions — such as a new home — and when the debt gets registered.In the July-September period, households borrowed $27.3 billion, $18.4 billion of that in mortgages, while consumer credit levels increased by $7 billion to $474 billion.The high debt-to-income number may surprise Canadians who only a few months ago were told it was just above 150 per cent. But Statistics Canada has recently revised how it calculates the measure to make it more representative of actual household finances.There was some good news in the report. The agency noted that the pace of growth in debt slowed during the period.As well, household net worth rose one per cent to $197,800 in the July-September period, mostly due to gains in holdings in stocks, including mutual funds, and increased value of pension assets.Economist Jimmy Jean of Desjardins Capital Markets said the report is unlikely to change the perception of Canada’s debt problem.The debt-to-income ratio has been setting new records since 2003, but remains below the peak reached south of the border before the 2007 housing crash. StatsCan says using equivalent measurements, Canada’s ratio is about 10 percentage points below the peak reached in the U.S. prior to the housing crash in 2007.The Bank of Canada, Jean notes, shouldn’t be shifted from its interest rate stance given “the evolution of debt seems to tie in to its expectations.” He pointed out that the effect of mortgage tightening rules brought in July had only begun to be felt in the third quarter numbers.But while managing debt doesn’t appear to be a major concern at the moment, thanks to super-low interest rates, the danger signs continue to flash red, economists warned.“The high level of debt leaves households more vulnerable to a rise in interest rates than they have been in the past,” said TD Bank economist Diana Petramala.“Given the prospects that interest rates will eventually rise, households must cool their spending and borrowing further.”On a national accounting level, Canada’s net worth increased by more than $9 billion in the third quarter to $6.8 trillion. That translates to $194,100 per person.However, an increase in net foreign indebtedness dampened the gain, the agency said.This higher net foreign debt was largely a result of increased Canadian borrowing abroad, as well as a decrease in the value of Canadian investments denominated in foreign currency because of the rising value of the loonie. by Julian Beltrame, The Canadian Press Posted Dec 13, 2012 1:38 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

‹ › Secretary-General had Audience with His Holiness Pope Francis, with CEB members. UN Photo/Eskinder Debebe Mr. Ban met with the Pontiff following two days of meetings in Rome with the UN’s most senior executives to discuss the world body’s global mission to promote peace, human rights and sustainable development.“We represent the family of the United Nations – and we meet at a time of test for the human family,” the Secretary-General said during his audience with the Pope. “Inequality is growing. Injustice is prevalent. There is too much intolerance among peoples and faiths. All of these aggravate insecurity.”The UN chief cited the “horrific” fighting between Christians and Muslims in the Central African Republic; the ongoing crisis in South Sudan; the Syrian conflict, now in its fourth year; tensions in Ukraine; and the growing impacts of climate change around the world. “Across the UN agenda, I see the need for calm, compassion, cooperation and courage,” said Mr. Ban. “Your Papacy embodies these principles and has inspired people in all regions and from all backgrounds. We deeply appreciate your personal commitment to eradicating poverty and promoting sustainable development.“I count on the Catholic Church, under your leadership, to continue to work closely with the United Nations to promote a life of dignity for all. Our meeting today will send a very strong message of solidarity in our common cause.”Mr. Ban invited the Pope to visit UN Headquarters in New York at his earliest convenience. “That would continue a tradition of papal visits – and be an opportunity for you to speak of your vision for our common future.”The Secretary-General also voiced his hopes for the Pope’s visit in August to the Republic of Korea, including to Mr. Ban’s home town, Eumsong.“I sincerely hope that you can bring a message of healing and reconciliation to the people of the Korean Peninsula.” read more

Category: laxaiplyfgakyiex New MINI builds on UK auto manufacturing success

One of the UK’s biggest car manufacturing operations has entered a new era this week with the debut of the new MINI hatchback. The launch of the new car marks the culmination of £750 million investment into BMW’s three UK-based manufacturing sites, and secures the futures of the 5,500-strong workforce currently employed across the network.The MINI plant in Oxford benefits from the majority of the investment, and has received a major overhaul with the addition of a new body shop employing 1,000 robots. Elsewhere, a raft of new technologies will be implemented at the Swindon-based steel body pressings factory, while the Hams Hall plant near Birmingham is gearing up to produce a new range of advanced three- and four-cylinder engines.Prime Minister David Cameron said, “I was lucky enough to get an early preview of the new MINI – a classic British icon – during a visit to the factory in Oxford last month. This £750 million investment is great news for both the local and wider economy, along with the 5,500 workers whose jobs are safeguarded by this launch.“Car manufacturing is a vital engine for growth. Production is back up to pre-recession levels and a car rolls off the line every 20 seconds in the UK. But we’re not complacent. Our industrial strategy is a key part of government’s economic plan and we’re helping to drive the car industry further and faster with over £4 billion of investment.”In addition to the new bodyshop, MINI Plant Oxford also gains an upgraded paint shop and final assembly area. The site’s green credentials have been boosted too, with a plethora of new schemes to reduce its carbon footprint and improve its waste management.Harald Krueger, BMW Group’s Board Member for Production, said, “In our Oxford plant’s centenary year, we are continuing the MINI brand success story and today starting production of the third model generation.“Our total investment of £750 million in our British production locations of Oxford, Swindon and Hams Hall between 2012 and 2015 underscores the importance of the MINI production triangle within our global production network. The UK is the heart of MINI production – thanks to the experience, competence and strong commitment of all our employees.”The UK has built more than 1 million cars so far this year.

Category: laxaiplyfgakyiex A Plea For More Frisbee Data From A US Ultimate Coach

It’s midway through the first half against Great Britain and they are scoring too easily. As a coach of the U.S. under-23 men’s Ultimate Frisbee team, I’d scouted the British team in an earlier game. Now, after watching the first 5 points of our semifinal match at this summer’s world championships, my fellow coaches and I gathered the team’s defensive line in a huddle: Their handlers are really comfortable throwing the around breaks, so let’s shift our marks to the backfield and make them throw the inside flick to a tight window. (For the 99 percent of you who didn’t get that: Basically, let’s position our defense in such a way that the only option for their throwers is a difficult forehand throw to a well-covered receiver.)The strategy happened to work: Deprived of easy, short passes, the British team began to take riskier and riskier long throws. Eventually, the percentages tilted in our favor, and we won by 3 points. We were on our way to a gold medal.That strategy, though, was basically put together on improvisation and a hunch. As my colleague Carl Bialik writes elsewhere on FiveThirtyEight, there isn’t much data in ultimate to help coaches like me.I can imagine a day, maybe at the 2025 world championships, when a brilliant coaching insight1And/or lucky guess. would emerge from a data set, displayed in a crisp chart on my iPad 12 (hologram edition). It would show which spots on the field the other team’s main throwers have trouble completing passes to. Another would reveal, say, that one of our players has a much higher completion rate along the forehand side than the backhand side. “Let’s run plays to that side of the field for him,” we, the brilliant coaches, would say.But having more data in my coaching arsenal is only the first step. Players don’t always absorb data-driven feedback easily.This isn’t unique to ultimate. Even in basketball, the players like Shane Battier who explicitly embrace analytics and can probably speak the language of usage rate and points per possession are rare.So coaches have to adjust their language. Players can better process “he doesn’t want to go right” than execute on “when positioned within 3 feet of the left elbow, your matchup’s shooting percentage decreases by 32 percentage points.” When I was playing top-level ultimate, I was much more effective on the field when the only thing running through my head was “screw these guys — let’s beat ’em.”But the job of a coach is to bridge the gap between a player’s lizard brain and the stat sheet. I’d love the challenge of having to translate analytics into simple language that gets my players out-performing, not over-thinking. You may notice that those two hunches might actually be at odds with each other. This is why we need the data! Send in the nerds.CORRECTION (Dec. 16, 9:22 a.m.): An earlier version of this article incorrectly referred to Great Britain’s ultimate team as the English team throughout. The few dabbles with this kind of data are intriguing. The chart next to this paragraph, which was put together by Sean Childers and is also in Carl’s piece, shows the chances of scoring from different parts of the field. It’s no surprise that the closer you are to the end zone, the better your chances of scoring are. But see that bow in the 40 percent range? Sean’s data — limited as it is — suggests that a team is just as likely to score from 50 yards outside the end zone in the middle of the field as it is from the sidelines 35 yards away. That’s actionable intelligence and confirms what I’ve gathered from years of experience — when you’re stuck on the sideline, bad things happen. (That’s why my advice to our defense against Great Britain was so focused on sideline strategy.)I would love to have other hunches of mine confirmed or disproved in this way. Am I justified in thinking that passes that “break the mark,”2Usually a defense tries to funnel offensive flow to one side of the field. Breaking the mark means that the offense is throwing passes to where the defense doesn’t want it to. no matter how small, have a cumulative effect of loosening up the defense, the way that Barcelona’s incessant tiki-taka style creates enough small cracks that eventually a big scoring opportunity emerges? What about my intuition that after five or six passes, an offense is usually so tired that it’s better to try to score in one long pass than to continue grinding away 3 yards at a time?

first_imgSpending on military construction and family housing programs would rise by $228 million to $10.3 billion, under the draft fiscal 2019 spending bill the Senate Military Construction-VA Appropriations Subcommittee approved Tuesday.  The panel’s recommendation roughly matches the overall funding level for milcon in the bill the House Appropriations Committee advanced last month. The measure will be considered by the full Senate Appropriations Committee on Thursday, when the text of the bill will be released. The legislation would fund 169 milcon projects and provide $1.6 billion for construction, operation and maintenance of family housing, according to a committee summary. The bill includes $498 million for unspecified milcon projects for the services to fund their highest priority unfunded projects, according to a summary issued by the committee’s Democrats.“While the Department of Defense did not take advantage of additional headroom provided by the 2018 budget deal to aggressively work to buy back years of using these accounts as bill payers — to the detriment of our service members and their families — this bill is an important step forward,” the Democrats’ summary stated.The House is scheduled to take up a three-bill “minibus” package this week that will include the FY 2019 military construction spending title.

first_imgGoodwood: Rolls-Royce Motor Cars saw sales in 2007 increase by 25 per cent, compared to 2006, with retails of 1010 cars. This is the first time that annual sales have reached four figures and the fourth successive sales increase since the company was launched in 2003. There was strong demand for all Phantom models, with the four door versions (Phantom and Phantom Extended Wheelbase) remaining the best sellers and accounting for 75 per cent of the total. However, it was the exceptional demand for the new Phantom Drophead Coupé, launched in the summer, which drove the volume increase. Production capacity at Goodwood was maximised by working extended shifts. “Everybody at Rolls-Royce is delighted with this tremendous result which marks our fifth anniversary in the best possible way,” said Ian Robertson, Chairman and Chief Executive. “It confirms Rolls-Royce as the most desirable brand in the super luxury market and is a credit to the passion and dedication of our teams at Goodwood and around the world. The customer reaction to the Drophead Coupé has been astonishing, exceeding all our expectations.” North America remained the biggest single market for Rolls-Royce in 2007, accounting for 40 per cent of sales and showing growth of 22 per cent. Exceptional performances were seen in the United Arab Emirates and in China which grew by around 70 and 50 per cent respectively. The Rolls-Royce dealer network expanded to 80 in 2007, with new showrooms including St Petersburg, Kiev and Dresden. The top selling dealers worldwide in 2007 were, respectively, Beverly Hills, London, Abu Dhabi, Tokyo and Dubai. Abu Dhabi saw the highest annual increase, with sales more than doubling. Looking ahead in 2008, Rolls-Royce has announced its intention to launch a two-door coupé model, based on the Phantom, in the summer. Further into the future a new Rolls-Royce model series, to sit alongside the Phantom models, will be launched in 2010, currently named RR4.last_img read more
