Test series win in Australia will give this Indian team a different identity: Virat Kohli

first_img4th Test, Day 5, Brief Scores: India 622 for 7 declared (Pujara 193, Pant 159 not out, Jadeja 81, Lyon 4 for 178) vs Australia (300 all out; Harris 79, Kuldeep 5 for 99) & 6/0 (Harris 2*, Khawaja 4*). Match ends in a draw. Full ScorecardVirat Kohli was a proud captain as he led Team India to a historic 2-1 Test series victory in Australia and achieved a feat that no other Indian team had before them.The overseas tours of South Africa, England and Australia were supposed to define this Indian team and despite failures in South Africa and England but Kohli believes this win in Australia will define this Indian team.”Firstly, I want to say I’ve never been more proud of being part of a team, than this one right here.”The culture we’ve built… our transition began right here, where I took over as captain, and I can’t believe that after four years we’ve won here. Just one word to say, ‘proud’, to lead this team and it’s an honour and privilege. The boys make the captain look good,” Kohli said in the post-match presentation ceremony.Kohli said this was by far his biggest achievement and accepted that he was emotional with this victory.”By far, this is my biggest achievement. It’s at the top of the pile. When we won the 2011 World Cup, I was the youngest member of the side. Saw everyone emotional there, but I didn’t feel it. Here, after coming three times, this win means something else. The series win will give us a different identity, and what we’ve been able to achieve… something to be proud of.”advertisementIs this series triumph Virat Kohli’s greatest achievement? #AUSvIND pic.twitter.com/hZAP5JjkA5cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) January 7, 2019Kohli had special praise for Cheteshwar Pujara and Mayank Agarwal, who performed admirably with the bat.”We spoke about our batting as a team, wanted to do the basics. The old, hard grind. Special mention to Pujara, he’s been outstanding in the series, especially after his last time out in Australia. He’s one guy willing to accept things, he works on his game, he’s the nicest man around, and we feel happy for him. Special mention to Mayank Agarwal too, he stood up as a champion on Boxing Day. Speaks highly of his mindset, but as a batting group we all contributed. It’s something that augurs well with the team.”The way the bowlers have dictated and dominated, not here but also in England and SA, it’s something I haven’t seen before. Hats off to them, the way they’ve prepared, their fitness levels, and their mindset. They discuss how to take wickets, and then they dictate their plans to me. It’s a revelation in Indian cricket, and something for the bowlers at home to learn. These guys will be looked up to for a long, long time, and they deserve to break the record of the great West Indian fast bowlers.”Kohli said that this Indian team is young and he would like them to build on this victory and get better.”This is just a stepping stone for us. The average age is quite low, but most importantly we had the belief: we had that in SA and in England, and when you’re working in the right direction then God knows you’re honest. We want to do the best for Indian cricket, and this is outstanding, but it’s just a stepping stone.India vs Australia: SYDNEY TEST REPORT | HIGHLIGHTS | SCORECARD”Australia are always going to be competitive. Every team goes through a transition, and their dominance kept world cricket exciting for so many years. I’m sure they’ll regroup as a side and play some exciting cricket in the future.”We all deserve to enjoy. The celebrations, I assure you, will run long. The boys are physically and mentally drained, and we have no more alarm clocks in the morning. And I want to mention about the crowd as well. They’ve been outstanding. They never let us feel we’re playing away from home. And they deserve this feeling as much as we do.”India registered a historic series win in Australia after beating the hosts 2-1 in the four-match series as the final Test ended in a draw owing to bad weather conditions in Sydney.India needed 10 wickets to wrap up their third win of the series but were unable to do so as rain came to Australia’s rescue after they were asked to follow-on by Virat Kohli on Day 4.Replying to India’s first innings score of 622 for 7 declared, Australia were bowled out for 300 on Sunday which gave India a 322-run cushion as they asked the hosts to bat again, becoming the first team in 31 years to enforce the follow-on against Australia in Australia since England, who did it in 1988.advertisementKohli became the first Indian captain to win a series in Australia. He came very close to setting the Indian record of registering three Test wins in Australia but will have to be satisfied with two victories, a feat which Bishan Singh Bedi had managed as India skipper on the 1977-78 tour Down Under.The series win was largely set up by India’s fast bowlers who bagged a total of 51 wickets in the four matches with Australia getting bowled out 7 times out of 8 during the series.Jasprit Bumrah finished as the highest wicket taker from either side with 21 wickets, while Mohammed Shami managed 16 and Ishant Sharma got 11. Umesh Yadav picked up two wickets in the lone Test he played in Perth.Spin-twins Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin got 7 and 6 wickets respectively while Kuldeep Yadav bagged 5 wickets in the Sydney Test, the only match he featured in the series.Kohli will be eyeing a series win in the one-dayers now as India get ready to face Australia in the 3-match series from January 12.Also Read | Kohli better batsman than Tendulkar but Dhoni better captain: Rahul, PandyaAlso Read | Pujara frustrated top-class Aussie attack to the point of submission: Ian Chappelllast_img read more

Report: Atletico Madrid 1 Chelsea 2

first_imgAtletico Madrid 1 Chelsea 2: Batshuayi clinches it as Costa looks on Dom Farrell Last updated 2 years ago 04:53 28/9/2017 AlvaroMorata - cropped Getty Images A last-gasp Michy Batshuayi goal earned Chelsea all three points at Atletico Madrid in the Champions League. Michy Batshuayi snatched a stunning 2-1 win for Chelsea with the last kick of the game at Atletico Madrid in Champions League Group C, as Diego Costa looked on from the Wanda Metropolitano stands.Antonio Conte’s Premier League champions were unfortunate to be behind when Antoine Griezmann scored Atleti’s first European goal at their new home from the penalty spot.The opener from the man Costa will join in a dream forward line from January onwards, having finalised his Atletico return from Chelsea on Tuesday, arrived five minutes before half-time but Alvaro Morata gave another indication that Conte’s side will cope perfectly well without their old talisman.

Morata nodded in a 59th-minute cross from the exceptional Eden Hazard to move on to seven goals in all competitions this season and worse was to follow for Diego Simeone’s men.Instead of launching a free-kick into the area as the allotted period of injury time expired, Chelsea calmly worked possession around, with Marcos Alonso picking out substitute Batshuayi for a simple finish that left the watching Costa ashen faced.Chelsea are top of the standings after back-to-back wins, two points clear of Roma, while Atleti have ground to make up in their pending double-header against Qarabag.Conte handed a start to the fit-again Hazard and Chelsea’s influential playmaker began brightly.The boss enjoyed that @AlvaroMorata header! #ATLCHE pic.twitter.com/6pPzxeqbof — Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) September 27, 2017 Hazard embarked upon a driving run in the fifth minute, sliding through a pass for Morata to drag wide, before cleverly cutting in from the left to fire into the side netting.Morata was off target once more from a similar position to the right of goal inside the Atletico penalty area, provoking an animated response from Conte on the touchline.Chelsea’s 3-5-2 was causing Atleti persistent problems and the jewel in the formation, Hazard, engineered space 25 yards out in the 13th minute to unleash a vicious swerving drive against the post, with home goalkeeper Jan Oblak rooted to the spot.Oblak was a necessarily more active participant after the first half ticked past midway and Morata’s header from David Luiz’s raking pass forced him to tip over.Atletico belatedly steadied themselves and took the lead having been on the back foot.Luiz needlessly grabbed Lucas Hernandez’s shirt as the defender looked to attack a near-post corner and Griezmann outfoxed Thibaut Courtois by sending his spot kick down the middle.It was almost 2-0 on the stroke of half-time when Courtois parried Koke’s low drive dangerously into the path of Saul Niguez, who sidefooted narrowly wide. 57’| 1-0 | It had to be him! @AntoGriezmann scored the first ever #UCL goal in the Wanda @Metropolitano . #AtletiChelsea #AúpaAtleti pic.twitter.com/PZ4aHWCjXF — Atlético de Madrid (@atletienglish) September 27, 2017 Saul got above Tiemoue Bakayoko to head past the post from a Koke set-piece early in the second half, while a wicked cross from Cesar Azpilicueta flashed agonisingly between Morata and the face of goal at the other end.It was no surprise when Hazard served as the architect of the away side’s equaliser, curling in a sumptuous ball from the left and obliging Morata to nod home.Uncharacteristic panic suddenly gripped the Atleti defence and after a clutch of red-and-white shirts scurried towards Hazard in vain, an unmarked but stumbling Cesc Fabregas was unable to turn in the cutback from close range.Morata’s outing should really have proved more profitable than it was.The Spain striker streaked away from Lucas in the 75th minute only to misjudge a tame effort, but Batshuayi – on for Morata – clinched the points with a close-range finish deep in injury time.Key Opta facts:- Chelsea are first side to win away in the Champions League against Atletico Madrid in the Spaniards’ last 12 games in the competition on home soil (since losing to Benfica in September 2015).- Chelsea are also only the fourth side to score away to Atletico in Europe in the Spanish giants’ last 20 games on home soil.- The Blues are now unbeaten in their last 10 Champions League away games against Spanish sides (W3 D7).- Since the start of 2015-16, Antoine Griezmann has had a hand in 51.5 per cent of Atletico Madrid’s 33 CL goals (14 goals, 3 assists)- Alvaro Morata has scored his first goal against Atletico Madrid in his seventh game against them in all competitions.- Michy Batshuayi has scored five goals in his last three games for Chelsea in all competitions, as many as in his previous 16.- In 2017, no player has scored more substitute goals for a Premier League club in all competitions than Michy Batshuayi (4, level with Olivier Giroud). read morelast_img read more

Economic growth may have slowed in 201819 FinMin

first_imgNew Delhi: The Indian economy appears to have slowed down in 2018-19 due to lower private consumption, tepid growth in fixed investment and muted exports, a finance ministry report has said. The Central Statistics Office (CSO), which released the national account data for the third quarter, had in February revised downwards the growth estimate for 2018-19 fiscal to 7 per cent from 7.2 per cent. The 7 per cent growth is the lowest in 5 years.

The proximate factors responsible for this slowdown include declining growth of private consumption, tepid increase in fixed investment, and muted exports, it said. The Ministry, however, said that India continues to remain the fastest growing major economy and is projected to grow faster in the coming years.last_img read more

Morocco Closely Follows Developments in Gabon

Rabat – Morocco is closely following the developments in Gabon since the announcement of the results of the presidential elections, which were a moment of democratic expression, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation said Friday.“Moroccan and Gabonese peoples are bound by historical ties of brotherhood, cooperation and solidarity. In this context, the Kingdom of Morocco is strongly committed to the stability of Gabon”, the ministry underlined in a statement.Calls to violence launched by some candidates to condition the outcome of the appeal at the Constitutional Court do not have a place in a democratic process, the ministry said, adding that such calls are not compatible with the democratic expression and the respect for the rule of law and show an attitude of nervousness incompatible with the exercise of democracy. The Kingdom calls for “restraint and wisdom to preserve the stability of this sister country and spare the Gabonese people the agonies of division”, the ministry added.“Any other outcome would be fatal for Gabon, but also for the stability of the entire sub-region”, warned the ministry, which stresses that “only the Gabonese people are the masters of their destiny”.With MAP read more

Table salt seen as likely cause of mass bromide poisoning in Angola

30 November 2007Contaminated table salt has been identified as the most likely cause of nearly 500 cases of bromide poisoning that led to an outbreak of a mysterious neurological illness in Angola, the United Nations World Health Organization (WHO) reported today. Contaminated table salt has been identified as the most likely cause of nearly 500 cases of bromide poisoning that led to an outbreak of a mysterious neurological illness in Angola, the United Nations World Health Organization (WHO) reported today. Toxicological tests conducted in Germany and the United Kingdom have detected “very high levels” of bromide, an industrial chemical, in the blood samples of patients, while separate tests in Germany and Switzerland have found similarly high levels of sodium bromide in samples of table salt from the households of patients. Table salt should contain sodium chloride. Health authorities in Cacuaco municipality, where the outbreak was centred, had confirmed 468 cases of bromide poisoning as of yesterday. The municipality is located in the suburbs of the capital, Luanda. Patients have reported symptoms that include extreme drowsiness, dizziness and a loss of muscle control. Although most patients recover slowly over a number of days, many remain unable to walk without assistance. Children suffer the strongest symptoms. WHO has been helping Angolan health officials carry out further epidemiological studies, environmental tests, laboratory analysis, a public awareness campaign and a salt replacement scheme. “It is still unknown how the salt samples were contaminated,” the agency said in a media statement. “Additional food samples are currently being analyzed to identify any potential secondary source of exposure.” read more

Some autistic children unable to attend school due to lack of supports

first_img Apr 8th 2019, 11:03 AM Short URL Monday 8 Apr 2019, 11:03 AM 11,231 Views By Conor McCrave 34 Comments Image: Shutterstock/Dmitri Ma HUNDREDS OF CHILDREN with Autism are being forced out of schools due to a lack of available resources and place, a new survey claims. The national autism charity AsIAm carried out research into the availability of school places for children in schools along with the ability of schools to cope with the child’s additional needs. It found that more than 54% of parents reported a lack of school places as the biggest barrier for their child to access education.Some 33% of parents said they were waiting one to two years for a place to become available, while 10% said they were waiting two to three years, and 7% were waiting for more than three years. Furthermore, some 66% of parents said anxiety was a factor in their child not being able to attend school.  Children with autism can experience sensory overload and subsequent “meltdowns” which require additional resources, according to the charity.The survey of 300 families also found that 22% of children had been expelled and 34% of parents said they were withdrawn from class due to inadequate support. Adam Harris, CEO of AsIAm, said children with autism are “not treated with the same respect” as their peers and “go unsupported in school”. “There is a significant body of children within our community who do not go to school at all,” he said. “In some instances, these students have simply been failed by the State in terms of inadequate levels of autism or special class provision despite the obligations on the State in the EPSEN Act, 2004.“They may be suspended or expelled, not for negative behaviour in the traditional sense,but literally because they are autistic and go unsupported in school.“They may irregularly or almost never attend school due to overarching anxiety or a lack of suitably trained teachers, but continue to be enrolled as if all was well.AsIAm is calling for greater resources and supports to be provided to children with autism to ensure they can remain in school. “There is no one solution to this. We need more autism classes, improvedinfrastructure, better teacher training and an obligation placed on schools to be fully inclusive,” Harris said. There full findings of the survey will be published by the charity tomorrow.  Image: Shutterstock/Dmitri Ma https://jrnl.ie/4581304 Share215 Tweet Email2 Some autistic children ‘unable to attend school’ due to lack of supports Some 33% of parents said they were waiting one to two years for a place to become available.

Will US News Weekly Work

first_imgU.S. News & World Report—having lost its status as a newsweekly in print—has launched a weekly digital magazine called U.S. News Weekly.”I don’t think the newsweekly concept’s outdated,” editor Brian Kelly told Portfolio. “I think it’s the delivery method that’s outdated.”But it remains to be seen if the concept—regardless of the delivery method—will work. Through June 2008, U.S. News saw its circulation fall 10.1 percent to 1.83 million, or about 170,000 copies short of its 2 million rate base guarantee.U.S. News Weekly will be delivered as a downloadable PDF and carries an annual subscription fee of $19.95 (a trial four-issue subscription is available for $3.95). Print subscribers to U.S. News will be able to download the digital edition for free, the publisher said. Sections in digital magazine, produced in partnership with Zinio, include “The Week in Washington,” “The Presidency,” “Washington Whispers” and “Blog Buzz”—repurposed content from U.S. News’ Thomas Jefferson Street blog.In November, U.S. News & World Report said it would scale back its print frequency to monthly.In 2008, U.S. News saw ad pages fall a staggering 32.4 percent, according to Publishers Information Bureau figures.

Jack Whites Boarding House Reach Reaches No 1

first_img Email Jack White’s ‘Boarding House Reach’ Reaches No. 1 News Twitter GRAMMY winner scores big with fans (and vinyl aficionados) on latest LPPhilip MerrillGRAMMYs Apr 2, 2018 – 4:50 pm With a dozen career GRAMMY wins behind him, Jack White’s new album, Boarding House Reach, struck some critics as an experimental departure from what had worked for him in the past. As far as the fans’ take? Given the April 7 Billboard 200 album rankings, the result is resounding: White earned his third No. 1 LP on the strength of 121,000 “traditional album sales,” the most of any rock album in 2018 so far.In addition to topping the Billboard 200, the 27,000 “traditional album sales” that were of the vinyl format variety gives Boarding House Reach the distinction of netting the fourth largest sales week for vinyl since Nielsen started tracking.Boarding House … follows White’s previous solo efforts, 2012’s Blunderbuss and 2014’s Lazaretto. Both went to No. 1 and were nominated for GRAMMY Awards, with the song “Lazaretto” winning Best Rock Performance at the 57th GRAMMY Awards.In 2017 White garnered special recognition from the Recording Academy’s Producers & Engineers Wing in receiving the President’s Merit Award in celebration of his ongoing support for the art and craft of recorded music. As someone who helms his own music and produces for other artists, White still feels genuinely gratified by this acknowledgment.”I am very grateful [to the P&E Wing] to bestow upon me something like that. It was a nice pat on the back. It felt very nice,” White recently told KCRW-FM’s “Morning Becomes Eclectic.”With his latest accolade secure, White now turns his attention to taking Boarding House Reach on the road beginning April 19 in Detroit.

Iditarod Strategies Make for Some Head Scratching

first_imgAs dogs teams drop onto the Yukon River, Iditarod mushers will find out how their race plans are playing out.  The next 140 miles of long, flat river will shine some light on who has the most speed and who needs a little more rest.No one is quite sure exactly what’s going on with race strategies this year. In fact even the most experienced mushers are scratching their heads.Martin Buser departs Willow at the 2014 Iditarod’s official restart. Photo by Josh Edge, APRN – Anchorage.“I realized that I’m probably a better dog training than a dog racer,” four-time champion Martin Buser, who was just waking up from a nap in Ruby, said. “But this team deserves to be raced properly, so that’s what I’m trying to do.”Clearly exhausted, Buser downs a steaming cup of coffee.“I just know you have to push so hard and it’s just tough and I’m not into toughness all that much,” he said.As he talks, Buser pulls at the little finger on his left hand.  It’s dislocated, white and swollen. He keeps it wrapped in a spare dog bootie.  His feet are bare and his left ankle is purple – also swollen.  He sprained it badly somewhere between Rohn and Nikolai.“The way I look at is we have the toughest individuals in front of us those dogs are so superior to anything else,” he said. “We might as well toughen up buttercup. They are unbelievably strong and tough and willing to give so we might as well give a little bit too.”Buser is putting all his energy into proving that lots of rest early in the race can pay big dividends later.  It’s a strategy Kelly Maixner is also testing with his dogs.“It seems like they recover a lot better earlier,” Maixner said. “So, say you do a long run at the beginning of a training session, they seem to recover faster at the beginning, so they get back to normal.”Maixner is running the Iditarod for the fourth time.  He’s a pediatric dentist by day.  He knew coming into the race he’d surprise a lot of people.Nicolas Petit. Photo by Josh Edge, APRN – Anchorage.“I’ve had a couple rough years the last couple years,” he said. “I just had injuries and illnesses during the race the last couple years that really bummed me out and this year I trained a lot harder than I ever have and this year I started my own practice so I was able to switch my schedule. I put probably 75 percent more miles on than I have in the past.”Nicolas Petit is also no stranger to high volume training.“Considering the lack of snow all over Alaska, basically my dogs haven’t seen a dog house since about New Years,” Petit said. “We’ve just been traveling around using the truck as a home base…training from there.”Petit’s strategy is to hold a strong steady pace.  He doesn’t like to run too fast.  But he’s been at the front of the pack since the start. He was surprised to see his run time into Ruby.“Apparently I got here faster than everybody else and that’s fun, but we were just trotting along,” he laughs.Petit says he hasn’t looked at another dog team since he left Willow.“I don’t really look at other people’s teams,” he said. “I just look at mine because it’s enough to worry about when you have 16 animals.”Mushers will have plenty of time to look around as the head out on the Yukon River.  The miles are long and flat for more than 140 miles. Teams are required to take a mandatory eight-hour rest before the get off the river in Kaltag.last_img read more

I Played Trumps Hologram Nightmare with HoloPlayer One

first_imgStay on target With Holography, Mind Control Through Lasers is Now a ThingInside the World’s Oldest Museum of Holograms One of the most fascinating games I played at Play NYC, a conference full of fascinating local New York indie games, put me in the shoes of famous small-handed MODOK Donald Trump. I was being mercilessly assaulted on all sides by hordes of fake news readers and had to escape to safety. I couldn’t directly move forward. I could only move left and right, sidestepping the issues, until I stumbled into a safe space opening and could proceed through. It really makes you think.The gameplay and premise were already pretty politically loaded, but what really took this terror over the top was its hazy, surreal aesthetic. The imagery floated in front of me, like I could actually reach out and touch it, like the game was bleeding out into the real world. It really added to the experience. And what made these psychedelic visuals possible? This nightmare Trump hologram game was a demo for the HoloPlayer One holographic display.Looking Glass Factory is a New York-based team that wants to do cooler and cooler things with holograms. We owe it to Tupac and Goku. Their previous products include various 3D light cubes as well as Volume, a personal holographic display for viewing 3D colorful objects in 3D space without glasses.HoloPlayer One is Looking Glass Factory’s next-generation holographic display. The version I played, compatible with both PC and Mac, is the beta prototype that developers are currently tinkering with. Like Volume, the HoloPlayer One projects 3D holographic images in front of you. However, instead of trapping the images in a cube, the HoloPlayer lets interact with them as if they were on a canvas.I mean canvas literally. Along with game demos, attendees at Play NYC could make holographic drawings with their fingers by just reaching into the light field thanks to Intel “RealSense” 3D camera and interaction technology as well as “volumetric video capture.” It’s the kind of trippy immersion you get from a more experimental VR demo but without the headset, or a more elaborate stationary augmented reality experience. I enjoyed it for many of the same reasons I enjoyed Microsoft HoloLens.The Trump game I played, Marshall’s Theory developed by Looking Glass itself, was just one demo designed to showcase the mind-bending potential of the HoloPlayer One. The glowing fuzz and bizarre presence of holographic visuals just add to the game’s already unsettling dream visuals and themes of paranoia. I should also mention that I played this game using a normal controller, so that’s also an option along with the more hands-on approach of the drawing demo.But Marshall’s Theory is only one of many games we’ll (theoretically) get to play on this box. Right now developers can purchase a limited number of these beta dev kits, shipping this September, for $750 before the price jumps up to $1000.Developers can also access a Unity SDK for the device and read tutorials on Looking Glass Factory’s website and forums. Looking Glass even holds local meet-ups where they teach interested developers in-person about how to use these exciting holographic tools. Once there’s enough software support (a port of Time Traveler by Sega perhaps?) hopefully it’ll just be a matter of time before consumers can get their hands on, and in, the HoloPlayer One.Or maybe the HoloPlayer One shows the real world and we’re all just the holograms? Cue the Black Mirror title card!Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Amazon Accidentally Sent 1700 Alexa Recordings to a Random Person

first_imgCosta Rican Drug Control Police (PCD) discovered over $1 million in cold cash hidden in the spare tires of a semitrailer at the northern border town of Peñas Blancas, Guanacaste, on Saturday,  Public Security Minister Celso Gamboa said at a press conference Tuesday.PCD officers searched the tractor-trailer after the driver, a 57-year-old Costa Rican from Cartago with the last names Dávila Ponce, appeared nervous. The search uncovered 108 different colored packages of tightly packed U.S. dollars hidden in two spare tires, totaling $1,116,840. The colored packages had names written on them, like “Luis,” “Tavo,” and “Chacho.” The trailer was empty.In the driver’s compartment police also discovered Dávila Ponce’s son, a 29-year-old with the last names Dávila Martínez, who abandoned a truck he was driving in El Salvador on Friday with 102 kilograms of cocaine. The Public Security Ministry said that Dávila Martínez was reportedly traveling to Guatemala to hand over his drugs.Neither father or son had criminal records.“As the son was driving up with drugs his father was driving down with cash,” Public Security Vice Minister Gustavo Mata said.The vice minister told The Tico Times that some of the money was likely destined for the purchase of cocaine, guns or other equipment in Costa Rica before the rest was sent to Panama or Colombia.“The money goes down, it doesn’t go up. It comes down from North America, Guatemala, Mexico, down to Costa Rica, Panama,” Mata said.Mata believes the father and son duo were working for the same criminal organization, but he couldn’t confirm it as of Tuesday afternoon.The suspects have been turned over to the prosecutor’s office in Liberia, Guanacaste. They could face eight to 20 years in prison for money laundering if convicted.
