The Centre has stopped free rations and other facilities such as daily cash allowance for Bru refugees who have refused to vacate the relief camps in Tripura and return to Mizoram. The deadline for the refugees to return expired on Sunday.“We have stopped the supplies as per the directive of the Centre. At the same time, we are trying to convince the refugees to accept the rehabilitation package and go back to Mizoram,” R. Darlong, magistrate of Panisagar subdivision in North Tripura district, said. There are three relief camps each in Panisagar and Kanchanpur subdivisions of Tripura bordering Mamit district of Mizoram. Most of the Bru refugees are from Mamit, from where they had fled in 1997 following an alleged ethnic cleansing by the majority Mizos. Each adult was being provided 600 gm of rice and ₹5 per day, while each minor was entitled to 300 gm of rice and ₹2.5 daily at the relief camps. Other facilities included 7 gm of salt per day, a pair of slippers per year and a set of dress every two or three years. “It is not easy for people who have lost everything to return with the package on offer. We have certain issues to be addressed. Besides, the government should have provided more time for repatriation,” A. Sawibunga of the Mizoram Bru Displaced People’s Coordination Committee, said. Of the 5,407 refugee families comprising 32,876 members, only 45 families have accepted the package so far and returned. The package includes ₹4 lakh in fixed deposit per family, ₹5,000 as monthly cash assistance, free rations for two years and ₹1.5 lakh in three instalments as house building assistance.
Tag: 上海后花园千花网 Breanna Stewart to be WNBA ambassador this season
FILE – In this Aug. 26, 2018 file photo, Seattle Storm’s Breanna Stewart in action against the Phoenix Mercury in a WNBA basketball playoff semifinal in Seattle. A person familiar with the decision says that Stewart will act as an ambassador for the WNBA this season and be paid by the league after the reigning MVP tore her Achilles over the winter and is out for the year. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity on Thursday night, May 23, 2019, because no official announcement has been made. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson, File)NEW YORK — Breanna Stewart will be a paid ambassador for the WNBA this season.The reigning MVP tore her right Achilles tendon while playing overseas this winter and because the league has no injury list for teams, the Seattle Storm suspended Stewart without pay to free up a roster spot.ADVERTISEMENT The WNBA will pay Stewart in excess of the roughly $65,000 base salary she would have made with the Storm, agent Lindsay Kagawa Colas confirmed to the AP on Friday.Colas said that the deal was done Thursday in discussion with deputy NBA commissioner Mark Tatum, who has been serving as the interim WNBA President. This was after Seattle and Stewart mutually agreed on the suspension. Seattle offered to keep Stewart on the roster and pay her full salary, but the 24-year-old said she wanted to help the team be the best it could be by not taking up an active roster spot.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logistics“The Storm made the decision independently to suspend her because of the injury,” Tatum told the AP at the New York Liberty game Friday night. “After they made the decision, we at the league office said ‘What a great opportunity to have the reigning MVP promote the league’. I spoke with Lindsay and then got on the phone with the team after they made the decision. What Stewie wants to do is help us grow and promote the league. It’s a great thing for the WNBA.”Colas was happy that the league was willing to think outside of the box. US faces greater challenges this time around at World Cup “The league delivered on the idea that they need to invest in their stars and be collaborative with the players. They understand Stewie’s value to the business,” Colas said. “I applaud them being entrepreneurial. This is a good thing for everyone. We are excited to pilot what I hope will be a model for how stars can work with the league and its partners to engage fans and drive interest year round.”The Storm also lost Sue Bird indefinitely to a knee injury this week, meaning they would have started the season with only 10 healthy players. There is a clause in the current CBA that if a team gets below 10 healthy players, they can sign a replacement player until they get back above 10.The union, which was informed of the Stewart decision, is interested some kind of change, whether it’s in the form of an injured reserve list or a roster expansion.“We thought it was a great idea and encouraged the league to think of other players that would make great ambassadors,” said Terri Jackson, who is the executive director of the WNBPA. “We wanted to see how it develops as the concept and plan rolls out. This league is represented by many great players.”It will definitely be a big topic of discussion around the CBA, which expires after this season because the players opted out at the end of 2018 season.ADVERTISEMENT Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting ‘Rebel attack’ no cause for concern-PNP, AFP Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles02:11’Not just basketball’: Circumcisions, pageants at Philippine courts02:03Russian envoy invites PH firms to explore for oil, gas in Russia02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss LATEST STORIES MOST READ DA eyes importing ‘galunggong’ anew Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Looking forward, we’d like to spark that type of change.”The league had an injury list from 1997-2005. Players had to sit out a minimum of three games from the date they were placed on the list. Then, the WNBA had a two-person inactive list from 2006-08 before rosters were reduced to 11 in 2009. Rosters are back up to 12 now.Chiney Ogwumike missed 2015 and 2017 because of two separate injuries. In 2015, she had microfracture surgery on her knee and the Connecticut Sun kept her on the roster all year, costing them a spot. Although Ogwumike couldn’t play, she was still the face of the franchise while making appearances.Two years later when she hurt her Achilles tendon, the Sun suspended her, freeing up the roster spot and not having to pay her.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next View comments

Tag: 上海后花园千花网 A Chart For Predicting PenaltyShootout Odds in Real Time
Italy’s first kick. An errant attempt by Franco Baresi, which sails over the crossbar. Move due south on the chart. Brazil — Team B, in red — is now a 70 percent favorite.Brazil’s first kick. But Brazil’s Márcio Santos misses, too! Terrific anticipation by Italian goalkeeper Gianluca Pagliuca. Move straight down again: we’re back to 50-50.Italy’s second kick. Italy’s Demetrio Albertini makes his penalty. Move down and to the left. Italy, up 1-0, is a 58 percent favorite.Brazil’s second kick. Romário notches a kick off the left crossbar. Move down and right. We’re tied 1-1, and the probabilities are at 50-50 again.Italy’s third kick. Brazil goalkeeper Claudio Taffarel guesses the right direction — but is much too late to stop Italy’s Alberigo Evani. Move down and to the left. Italy is ahead 2-1 and has a 59 percent chance of winning.Brazil’s third kick. Brazil’s Branco equalizes. Down and to the right. Back to 50-50.Italy’s fourth kick. This was the pivotal penalty — it affected the odds more than any other kick (including Roberto Baggio’s infamous miss later on). Taffarel anticipates Daniele Massaro’s kick and makes one of the easier-looking saves you’ll see in a shootout. Move straight down. Although the score is tied 2-2, Brazil has an attempt in hand and is a 79 percent favorite to win.Brazil’s fourth kick. Dunga’s penalty is low and to the middle — and by Baresi. Brazil up 3-2. Look down and right on the chart: The team’s now 90 percent to win the shootout.Italy’s fifth kick. Italian star Baggio gets far too much on his attempt and it goes well over the crossbar. The Brazilian reserves rush the pitch to celebrate their World Cup championship. Presumably, you’re either celebrating too or throwing things at the television screen — either way, hope you saved that bottle of grappa. But, if you insist, move straight down the chart. You’ll encounter a solid block B — in this case, representing Brazil. This is an end condition: The penalty shootout is over, and Brazil has won.Here’s the chart with the Italy-Brazil results filled in:Sometimes the shootout can persist for more than five kicks per team. For example, one shootout in the 2006 Africa Cup of Nations featured 23 consecutive made penalties before Cameroon’s Samuel Eto’o finally missed to hand Ivory Coast advancement. When this occurs, follow the loop in the chart. The situation when teams are tied after five kicks is mathematically identical to the one when they’re tied after six kicks, 12 kicks, 20 kicks or any other number.On other occasions, there may be reason to think that one team starts the shootout with an advantage. Maybe it has a better goalkeeper, or its opponent is England, or you buy the theory that the team that shoots first has an edge. There’s also some evidence that the better team based on overall measures of team quality (such as Elo ratings or the Soccer Power Index) may have some minor advantage in the shootout. Shootouts are mostly random but not entirely so.Take the case in which Team A shoots first and is the better penalty-shooting team, converting 75 percent of its penalty kicks — while Team B makes 70 percent. Team A will win the shootout about 58 percent of the time. This resembles the shootout between Brazil and Chile on Saturday: Live betting odds, before the first penalty was attempted, put Brazil’s chance of winning in the range of 55 to 60 percent. Here is the chart for that occasion:We won’t give you a complete walkthrough, but Brazil’s odds rose to 83 percent after Luiz’s make and Pinilla’s miss — and then further, to 91 percent, after Marcelo put Brazil ahead 2-0. But consecutive makes by Chile and a miss by Hulk brought Brazil’s odds down to 56 percent. Neymar made Brazil’s fifth penalty, and the team’s odds recovered to 69 percent — and Brazil won when Chile’s Gonzalo Jara hit the post. Had Neymar missed instead, Chile would have been the 83 percent favorite.Finally, here’s the case where the side that shoots second — Team B — has a slight edge and makes 75 percent of its penalties to Team A’s 70 percent.Note that Team B’s advantage amounts to the equivalent of about half a kick. If Team A makes its first penalty, and Team B still has an attempt in hand, the odds go to about 50-50. But if Team A misses, Team B’s odds rise to 77 percent despite not having yet made an attempt. If you’ve come here during a penalty shootout, scroll down for some cool charts. The next several paragraphs explain our methodology in some detail.FiveThirtyEight has some credibility staked on the performance of the Brazilian national team. It was our pretournament favorite to win the World Cup. (Many other forecasts had Brazil favored, but not as heavily as we did.) So, like the 23 Brazilians on the pitch and the 200 million watching at home, we were sweating the outcome when Brazil went to a penalty shootout with Chile on Saturday.We were curious about the Brazilians’ chances of winning at various points in the shootout. How safe were they after Brazil’s David Luiz made his first penalty and Chile’s Mauricio Pinilla missed his? How close did things get after the shootout was tied at 2-2, and how bad would it have been if Neymar had then missed for Brazil?What follows is a series of charts to provide some reasonable estimates of these probabilities. We’ll start with the case in which both teams are assumed to be equally likely to convert penalty kicks, and then explore alternatives where one team (perhaps like Brazil against Chile) might be thought to have a marginal edge.There’s a cottage industry around predicting the outcome of penalty kicks. Some theories are worth exploring. There’s some evidence, for example, that whichever team shoots first has a slight advantage. Others are probably more dubious and may rely on overinterpreting evidence from small sample sizes (see Phil Birnbaum’s cautionary note for more on this).Our goal is not to litigate those theories. Instead, we make some simple assumptions: that the outcome of one penalty kick is independent from the next one, and that a team’s chances of making a penalty is consistent with long-run averages.In the history of the World Cup, teams have made 71.5 percent of their penalty-shootout kicks. But the sample size is not huge, and the percentage has been slightly higher — closer to 75 percent — in other major international tournaments like the European Championships. So we fudge just a pinch upward and assume that the long-run rate of made penalties in the World Cup is 72.5 percent.It’s important to clarify that this percentage pertains to penalty kicks attempted during shootouts. The success rate is higher — in the range of 75 to 80 percent — for penalties attempted after a foul is called in the box in regulation play. But those cases are a little different. A team will usually designate its best penalty taker to make the one attempt instead of having to rotate through at least five players as in a shootout. (If Neymar or Lionel Messi got to make every attempt, the success rate in shootouts would rise.) Furthermore, the rebound is live in penalties attempted during regulation play; rebounds are not live during a shootout. (Even if goals scored on the rebound are not counted as penalty-kick conversions, the possibility of a rebound may affect the strategy of the kick taker and the goalkeeper.) Finally, players may be under more pressure during a shootout, and they’ll have the opportunity to alter their behavior after observing their teammates’ kicks.So to repeat: Our initial assumption is simply that each penalty kick has a 72.5 percent chance of being made. From there, calculating the probability of a team winning the shootout is fairly straightforward given any condition of the game (for instance, a team being ahead 2-1 after each team has attempted three penalties). The technique we’re applying is technically known as a Markov chain, but that makes it sound more elaborate than it is.Time for the first chart. This assumes two-evenly matched teams, which we’ll call Team A and Team B. Team A shoots first.You can follow the action by moving down one row after every penalty-kick attempt. Whenever Team A makes a penalty, move down and to the left. Whenever Team B does, move down and to the right. When there’s a miss, move straight down (don’t alter your horizontal direction). A cell tinged in blue means that Team A is favored to win the shootout, and one tinged in red means that Team B is favored instead.As an example, we’ll take the shootout in the 1994 World Cup final between Italy (the Azzurri shot first, so they are Team A, in blue) and Brazil (Team B, in red). The teams were about evenly matched, so we’ll assume that the probability was 50-50 going in. Here’s what happened next:

HOA Opens, slew of Health Bills on Agenda; Key questions to Border Control Minister Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 09 Oct 2014 – Provo may never experience the flooding as had been seen in the deluge of TS Cristobal again. We have learned that Government has spent $162 thousand dollars on wells & drains and new wells & drains in the aftermath of that retreating rainy system which grid locked the nation for over a week. Seventeen drains have been re-drilled, while 14 new drainage wells have been dug – all on the island of Providenciales. New wells will mean more run off points for any prolonged rains, the flooding so severe that it trapped people and created health risks. The Ministry of Health on Tuesday confirmed that those flood waters and the fact that they became mosquito breeding grounds did cause the cases of Dengue Fever and Chikungunya to surge dramatically for Turks and Caicos. The figures so high and changing so rapidly, especially in the case of Dengue Fever, that officials explained they are still collating numbers… and never gave new numbers for Dengue which is linked to one death in Grand Turk. There are now five new wells in Leeward; three in Long Bay; two in Blue Hills and one each for Juba Sound, Caicos Lodge and Airport Road. The re-drilled wells included the five in Leeward, four in Five Cays, four in The Bight, two in Kew Town and one each for Juba Sound and Long Bay.

Juan Garzon / CNET Back in February during MWC 2019, French phone maker Avenir Telecom surprised everyone when it launched the Energizer Power Max P18K Pop, a massive phone with an 18,000mAh battery and a whole lot of junk in the trunk. Though it attracted show attendees and garnered news headlines, today it failed to secure $1.2 million in funding via its IndieGogo campaign. First reported by The Verge, the Energizer phone only succeeded in attracting 11 backers to pledge $15,005 — a little more than 1% of the goal — towards its manufacturing and distribution. Because the campaign was not successful, backers will get their money back, per Indiegogo policy.While it doesn’t really surprise anybody that most users wouldn’t want a phone with a huge profile and cumbersome design, the want for a phone with a long-lasting battery life is real. If the Power Max P18K Pop actually were to become real, it would have offered a 50-day battery life, according to Avenir Telecom. That’s plenty of power to fuel its 6.2-inch display, dual pop-up selfie cameras and triple rear camera setup. I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.

Ride-sharing service firm Uber has raised $1.2 billion in its latest round of funding. The firm is now valued at at $40 billion.The San Francisco-based firm made the announcement in a blog post and said that the funds will be used to make strategic investments in the Asia-Pacific region.Uber has been growing by leaps and bounds and currently operates in more than 250 cities across 50 countries, up from the 60 cities and 21 countries a year ago.The fresh flow of cash comes just six months after it raised $1.2 billion in investment funds.A year ago, Uber had raised $250 million through Google Ventures.Its $40 billion valuation allows it to sell about $1.8 billion in stock.The impressive figures show how Uber is still one of the most coveted tech start-ups as of today, despite a controversial reputation.Recently, Uber’s top management came under fire after it made hostile comments towards journalists.Rider privacy and driver compensation is also a disputable issue at Uber. But in the blog post, co-founder Travis Kalanick asserted that Uber was going to fix everything that went wrong in the recent past.Kalanick called the events “growing pains” and added that “acknowledging mistakes and learning from them are the first steps. We are collaborating across the company and seeking counsel from those who have gone through similar challenges to allow us to refine and change where needed.”Going forward, Uber will add several jobs in 2015 and aim to become a service that’s cheaper than owning a car.Uber’s fundraising announcement comes just a day after SoftBank invested $250 million in cab-hailing app GrabTaxi – a Southeast Asian taxi booking service, which also hopes to use the investment to expand business.Analysts say Uber has an edge over its competitors because of its reach and the type of technology services it offers. But many argue that the company uses cheap tricks to beat competition like hiring stealth riders and also giving burner phones to cancel rides of other services.So why are investors still opting to put their money in Uber?”They (investors) want somebody who’s going to go out there and fight for their money. They’re used to bad boys and that’s sometimes what it takes to get stuff done in business. They want a fierce competitor that operates within not necessarily the letter of the law, but the reality of what you can get away with in the law,” Greg Autry, a professor of Clinical Entrepreneurship at the University of Southern California explained to NPR.org.
