Virat Kohli says India ready to negate Rangana Herath threat at Galle

first_imgIndian batsmen have done their homework and will not allow Sri Lanka’s Rangana Herath to wreck them again at Galle, captain Virat Kohli said on the eve of the first Test between the neighbours on Tuesday.The burly left-arm spinner claimed seven wickets in the fourth innings to derail India’s 176-run chase in the last Test they played at Galle in 2015.India went on to win the next two matches to clinch the series 2-1 and Kohli said his team have learnt their lesson from that series. (Team India dons new jersey for photoshoot ahead of Galle Test)”He’s a quality bowler. Last time he really dented us in that small chase,” Kohli said of Herath, who will lead Sri Lanka in the series opener in absence of ailing regular skipper Dinesh Chandimal.”It was actually a great eye-opener for us. We worked on those things in the next two games and were able to win the series. He played both the games and the ball was still doing a bit but our batsmen had counter-plans in place.”Herath managed eight wickets in the remaining four innings as the Indians appeared to have found a way to deal with Sri Lanka’s spin spearhead.AP Photo”We understand what he brings to the table and we understand what needs to be done,” Kohli said.”I’m sure everyone is taking personal responsibility to plan their innings…We’ve come a long way from that tour. We believe our batsmen will deliver the goods when it’s required.”advertisementWhile Sri Lanka will miss Chandimal, who is recovering from pneumonia, India will be without regular opener Lokesh Rahul, who is down with high fever.Kohli ruled out any experiment and suggested Abhinav Mukund will join Shikhar Dhawan at the top of the innings and said all-rounder Hardik Pandya could make his test debut in the first match of the three-Test series.”We got great balance in the side. We got a guy like Hardik Pandya who is a wicket-taking bowler. Every game he plays, on any surface, he has a knack of picking up wickets. He has a great chance of playing.”Counterpart Herath was worried how his young team would fare against the mighty Indians who have been beaten only once since the 2015 Galle test.”They are the number one team at the moment and are playing very good cricket,” said the 39-year-old.”This is an interesting and challenging series. We need to do something special.”last_img read more

Lucas hat-trick in Basel seals top spot for Arsenal

first_imgGetting a rare start, the Spanish forward gave Arsenal a three-goal lead by the 47th minute as the visitors coasted to victory.Arsenal unexpectedly finished atop Group A, rising above Paris Saint-Germain which drew 2-2 at home to winless Ludogorets Razgrad.As a group winner, Arsenal is seeded in Monday’s draw for the Round of 16, hoping to avoid a seventh straight exit at that stage.Arsenal will avoid the likes of Barcelona and Atletico Madrid but the pot of unseeded teams is stronger than usual.“It’s difficult to know,” Wenger told British broadcaster BT Sport, when asked if it was better to finish top. “You feel a bit less guilty. At least we have done our job and let’s see what happens.”One possible opponent is Bayern Munich, which ousted Arsenal in the first knockout round in 2013 and ’14.Another option is either Real Madrid or Borussia Dortmund, which play Wednesday in Spain with the leadership of Group F at stake.Arsenal completed its 17th straight successful group stage with a deserved win on a cold night in Switzerland.Mesut Ozil capped Arsenal’s performance with a delightful assist to let Alex Iwobi score in the 53rd, before Basel substitute Seydou Doumbia struck a consolation goal in the 78th.Still, it was Lucas Perez’s show, having made little impact in north London since a deadline-beating move from Deportivo La Coruna in August.The 28-year-old forward scored his first Champions League goal in the eighth minute and scored in almost identical fashion eight minutes later.Each time, left back Kieran Gibbs was found deep in the Basel area. First a cross, then a shot, flashed across the goalmouth for Lucas Perez to tap in with his left foot at the far post.The hat trick goal was more impressive, as Lucas Perez advanced into the path of the ball 15 meters (yards) out to shoot right-footed across the dive of goalkeeper Tomas Vaclik.“I think he took advantage of the fact that we created good chances, but he’s a goalscorer,” Wenger said. “He scored over 20 goals in Spain and that’s no coincidence.”Ozil’s visionary assist was the key to Arsenal’s fourth. A fast, direct break saw the Germany playmaker surge into the Basel penalty area and deceive defenders who expected him to shoot by clipping a reverse pass for Iwobi to score easily from close range.Basel’s season in Europe is over though it is 12 points clear in the Swiss league and likely to be back in the Champions League groups next season.The Swiss champion finished bottom in the group, leaving Ludogorets in third place to switch to the Europa League Round of 32 draw on Monday.TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Report: Basel 5 Benfica 0

first_imgBasel 5 Benfica 0: Oberlin inspires as hosts end winless run in style Ben Spratt Last updated 2 years ago 04:47 28/9/2017 DimitriOberlin - cropped Twitter @fc_basel Having waited almost three years for a Champions League win, Basel ruthlessly brushed aside visitors Benfica in Group A at St Jakob Park. Dimitri Oberlin played a starring role as Basel ended their 11-game winless run in the Champions League with the stunning 5-0 defeat of 10-man Benfica at St Jakob Park on Wednesday.Not since November 2014 had the Swiss side tasted victory at this level, but their Group A opponents were blown away by a devastating game plan that relied heavily on the awesome speed of Oberlin to secure the club’s biggest Champions League win.The Red Bull Salzburg loanee ran riot, playing a key role in Michael Lang’s breakthrough goal before adding a brace of his own either side of the penalty he won for Ricky van Wolfswinkel to convert.

Rui Vitoria, hurting from a home reverse against CSKA Moscow on matchday one, had called for his side to deliver in the first of “five finals”, but the coach’s tactics left Benfica wide open, while his attempts to outsmart Basel – dropping Switzerland international Haris Seferovic – blunted the attack.Although the hosts, two up after 20 minutes, thrived on defending their lead, further goals were always likely with Oberlin on the pitch and Andre Almeida’s dismissal for an outrageous challenge on Raoul Petretta – shortly after the third – ended the game as a contest.Blas Riveros – Petretta’s replacement – netted a fifth to complete Benfica’s humiliation.FT | FCB 5 (Five) – 0 @slbenfica_enLangOberlinvan WolfswinkelRiverosA well deserved and historic win by Basel after a fantastic performance. #FCBSLB #FCBasel1893 #UCL— FC Basel 1893 EN (@FC_Basel_en) September 27, 2017Basel’s pace and energy was evident from the off and they were rewarded with the opener inside two minutes.Oberlin drove at the visitors’ defence and slipped a pass through for Renato Steffen, tempting the ambling Julio Cesar from his goal line to hand Lang a simple, uncontested finish when the ball eventually broke his way on the right-hand side of the area.Benfica sought a response, but their pressure only played into the hands of the counter-attacking hosts. Oberlin again did the damage, timing his run beautifully to sprint clear and calmly convert through the goalkeeper’s legs.Oberlin continued to run at Benfica – with 36-year-old Luisao, in particular, struggling – but both Taulant Xhaka and Lang wasted promising shooting opportunities.Although Raul Jimenez awkwardly prodded over in a rare opening for the visitors at the end of the first half, Basel were swiftly back on the attack after the restart and Raoul Petretta’s strike drew a save from Julio Cesar.Lang passed up a great chance to put the result beyond doubt as he fired wide, but it mattered little; another incisive Oberlin run teased a foul from Lubomir Fejsa inside the area.Van Wolfswinkel dispatched the spot-kick and Benfica’s task quickly became harder still, with Andre Almeida foolishly crashing into Petretta’s shins and then having the cheek to challenge his inevitable red card as the understandably outraged home supporters angrily gestured in his direction.Luisao had suffered throughout and Oberlin made a mockery of his ageing legs on the fourth goal, dancing past a mistimed challenge on the edge of the box to nutmeg Julio Cesar once again.Steffen tested the goalkeeper shortly afterwards, before Raphael Wicky took mercy on Luisao and his floundering team-mates with the withdrawal of Oberlin.Basel’s momentum was scarcely interrupted, though, and substitute Riveros poked in the fifth, having struck the post moments earlier after a Mohamed Elyounoussi effort had also struck the woodwork. read morelast_img read more

Apologue Liqueurs Puts a Focus on the Under-Appreciated Ingredients of the Midwest

first_img The Best American Liqueur It’s no secret the Midwest is a fertile ground for agriculture, but, sadly, the region doesn’t have a rich history in American taste-making (unless you count the Super Bowl Shuffle and hot dish, of course).Apologue LiqueursAs the American consumer becomes more interested in artisanal wares, however, Midwest creators have been able to build some clout — like Apologue Liqueurs, who is helping prove under-appreciated native Midwestern ingredients are great for cocktails. The Chicago-based company currently has a line of three liqueurs made with Midwestern Aronia berry, persimmon, and celery root.Co-founder Robby Haynes was working in Chicago bars and experimenting flavors when a friend of a friend wanted to start liqueur company. Haynes and co-founder Jordan Tepper then spent nine months researching and experimenting with different recipes to come up with what was missing from behind the bar.“I got pretty excited about the idea,” Haynes says. “It was a great opportunity to change the stigma of liqueurs, many of which are really sweet and full of artificial flavors and colors. It seemed like there was a good opportunity and it was a good time to bring liqueurs into the modern age.”“We got really excited about working with local farmers for primary ingredients and we were dead-set on making them with all natural ingredients and no artificial colors,” he adds. The Best Bottles of Whiskey You Can Buy For $20 or Less The general recipes were fairly quick to come up with, Haynes explains, but with every batch, the duo continued to tinker and make small adjustments to increase the overall quality and consistency of the products. The ingredients all come from within 100 miles of Chicago and the business is working on growing certain things within the city limits.Right now, Haynes says Apologue Liqueurs can be found in approximately 80 bars and restaurants, as well as liquor stores like Binny’s Beverage Depot and Foxtrotco. The brand is hoping to expand distribution in the future.“Our plan has been to take it slow and continue to dial in our packaging and really get our ducks in a row before we try to grow,” Haynes elaborates.Likewise, the product line is expected to grow in the near future. “There are brands with 10 types of liqueurs,” he says. “Our vision is to do that, but do well with interesting flavors and thoughtful and interesting notes that can be enjoyed. A lot of the older liqueurs you have to mix because they’re too cloying or sweet. Ye,s you can mix ours, but they are complex and can be sipped on ice with a twist.”Apologue Liqueurs LineupApologue LiqueursHaynes suggests trying the liqueurs first with a small ice cube to tease them out and get a true sense of their essence.Aronia Berry“The most versatile of the bunch,” Haynes said. Aronia Berry Liqueur has notes of various tart berries, including Aronia, or chokeberries, and adds a punch to an Old Fashioned, allowing you to skip the simple syrup in the process.PersimmonThe Persimmon Bittersweet Liqueur is Apologue’s take on an amaro, similar to Campari or Aperol. It’s bitter already with the persimmon, a tomato-like sweet fruit, but also adds rhubarb and orange peel. Made for use in Negronis or a spritz.Celery RootThe most savory of the bunch, according to Haynes. Along with celery root, ingredients include tarragon, dill, and fennel. Use it in a Celery Collins made with your choice of gin (this is our choice), lemon, celery root, and soda. A Bloody Mary would serve well with Celery Root Liqueur, but Haynes also said a simple Celery Root Liqueur and tonic is excellent as well.If these liqueurs sound good enough to travel to Chicago (hint: they are), we recommend getting a coffee massage while you’re there. 14 Best Outdoor Stores in the United States center_img 11 Best Gins for a Refreshing Gin and Tonic Editors’ Recommendations Rabbit Hole Rebrands and Launches New Whiskey last_img read more

Share Tweet Email center_img 19,157 Views Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Short URL VERA TWOMEY HAS reached Abbeyleix on her walk from Cork to the Dáil.Twomey is campaigning for medicinal cannabis to be made legal in order to help her daughter Ava.She began the 260km walk from her home to the Dáil as a protest against decisions to restrict her Ava, who has rare form of epilepsy called Dravet’s syndrome, from accessing cannabis based medication.Speaking to this afternoon as she arrived into Abbeyleix, County Laois, she said she was holding up well.“I’m feeling positive with the amount of people who came out to walk with us and with the amount of support today. There’s support coming from Sydney, Perth, Germany, Canada, Belgium and Holland and beyond.”However, despite walking all week, Vera has yet to receive an official response from Health Minister Simon Harris.“There’s still no official response. What I understand is that the health committee review will be next Tuesday, which is being brought forward. But that meeting will have to deliver a report then that will have to be submitted to the Minister.“They can no longer hide behind their excuses or reports or reviews.“We’re coming to Dublin, we’re gathering people and we’re not leaving Dublin until Ava gets what she needs.”Twomey has been in a number of meetings with Health Minister Simon Harris and has tried to get the Minister to allow Ava access cannabis-based medicine on compassionate grounds. Ava, who would have suffered dozens of seizures on a daily basis, has had access to CBD oil costing around €300 a month. Vera on the road this week. Source: Facebook/Vera TwomeyCBD is a cannabinoid and is legal in Ireland because it does not contain any THC, the psychoactive part of the cannabis plant. Vera is campaigning for access to the full range of cannabis-based medicines.Last week, Twomey released a harrowing video of Ava suffering a seizure to TV3.“Simon Harris has the authority to put this legislation into place. The people of this country want this legislation now. They know there is a little girl whose life can be changed.“I don’t want to be out here. I want to be at home with my children.”Read: Vera Twomey battles tonsillitis and crippling pain to make it to Kilkenny By Paul Hosfordlast_img read more

IAB Releases The Native Advertising Playbook

first_imgTo read the full report click here. In a continued effort to make sense of native advertising, IAB released its latest study, “The Native Advertising Playbook.”The paper is intended to provide Internet advertisers and marketers with a framework for thinking and discussing the current state of native advertising. To do that, IAB broke native down into six ad-unit categories, along with six questions marketers should ask when evaluating each. IAB also offers some recommended best practices to consider.The six types of ad units that are most common now are: in-feed, paid search, recommendation widgets, promoted listings, in-ad with native elements and custom. The paper defines each unit with details on how to evaluate them based on form, function, integration, targeting and measurement.IAB’s study was released on the same day the FCC is holding its workshop, “Blurred Lines: Advertising or Content?,” as the commission looks to understand the practice to ensure fairness moving forward. IAB will also be holding a series of its own workshops beginning in March that will address topics like measurement, ethics and consumer attitudes towards advertising.last_img read more

France is working on a new space laser to blind rogue satellites

first_img Share your voice Military Space Comments French Armed Forces Minister Florence Parly presents the government’s new plan Thursday. Emma Le Rouzic / Air Force While President Trump’s proposed US Space Force is held up on Capitol Hill, France’s military has its own plans to deploy weapons in space. French Armed Forces Minister Florence Parly on Thursday laid out the country’s new space defense strategy, which includes deploying satellites with the means of disabling other satellites that pose a threat.”If our satellites are threatened, we intend to blind those of our adversaries,” Parly said, according to AFP. “We reserve the right and the means to be able to respond: that could imply the use of powerful lasers deployed from our satellites or from patrolling nano-satellites.”Last year, France accused Russia of flying one of its satellites a little too close to a French bird to spy on secure military communications.  Lieutenant Colonel Thierry Cattaneo explained that using lasers as a means of defense is preferable to destroying aggressor satellites and creating countless new pieces of hazardous debris in orbit. Earlier this month, French President Emmanuel Macron announced the creation of a new space command within the country’s Air Force, an approach the White House is also working to implement in the US.
