CLT20 chance to impress IPL teams: Int’l players

first_imgWith the Indian Premier League IV auction set for November, the upcoming Champions League Twenty20 comes as a big platform for players to impress upon the IPL teams and earn a fat contract with one of the 10 franchises, feel international cricketers.The three-year contracts of IPL players have ended after the successful completion of third edition of the high-profile T20 League and buoyed by the addition of two new franchises – Kochi and Pune – cricketers feel it is time to rake in some bounty by consistent performances in the CLT20 which starts at the Wanderers on Friday.”The tournament is a great opportunity for each and every individual to showcase their potential and come to the notice of IPL teams.”I consider it is a very very crucial tournament because it gave me my big break in IPL,” said big-hitting West Indian all-rounder Kieron Pollard, who shot to limelight playing for Trinidad and Tobago in the inaugural CLT20 in India.”Each and every cricketer will be now eyeing the IPL IV auctions,” said Pollard, who played for Mumbai Indians in the IPL III.On personal and team’s front, Pollard is looking to put up consistent performances for Mumbai Indians in the upcoming event.”It’s (CLT20) gonna be great. It is my first time in South Africa and I am looking forward to the challenges. We played good cricket throughout the tournament in last IPL but it was disappointing to lose the final.”The conditions here are different. It is more like Australia but being an international cricketer you need to play in all sorts of environment,” Pollard added.advertisementSouth African middle-order batsman J P Duminy too agreed with his Mumbai Indians team-mate and said CLT20 is a good opportunity for players to catch the eyes of IPL franchises.”Definitely, I think so because it is the right time to put your name on the map. A lot of people will be watching these performances and the players will be geared up to perform here and earn big contracts,” said the left-hander.However, temperamental India off-spinner Harbhajan Singh thinks otherwise and feels consistency should be the only criteria to judge a player’s potential.”According to me that’s a wrong perception. One or two tournaments are not enough to judge a player’s capabilities.You need to see his past performances and future abilities. He should have done well over a period of time,” the 30-year-old tweaker, who will also represent Mumbai Indians in the second Champions League T20 here, said.The CLT20 starts with Mumbai Indians taking on local side Highveld Lions in the opening match.last_img read more

Warriors Take Down Grizzlies, 98-78

first_imgOAKLAND, Calif. — Down and out just days earlier, the Golden State Warriors suddenly look alive and well again.Stephen Curry turned in an MVP-worthy performance, Klay Thompson snapped out of his shooting funk and the Warriors rolled past the Memphis Grizzlies 98-78 on May 13 to take a 3-2 lead in their Western Conference semifinal series.“It’s like wine,” Warriors forward Draymond Green said about learning how to stop Memphis. “It gets better with time.”The Warriors turned up the league’s top-rated defense and finally found their rhythm from long range.Curry scored 18 points on six 3-pointers and added a career-playoff high six steals to go with seven rebounds and five assists. Thompson scored 21 points, and Harrison Barnes had 14 as the Warriors won their second straight game in impressive fashion.Golden State can close out the Grizzlies in Game 6 on Friday night in Memphis.“I think I said the first couple games, ‘Our defense was good enough, but it wasn’t championship defense,’” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “I was wrong. This is what it’s going to take.”With defensive stopper Tony Allen sidelined with a left hamstring injury, the Grizzlies struggled to contain Golden State’s streaky shooters. The Warriors made 14-of-30 shots from 3-point range, while Memphis made just four of 15 from long distance.Marc Gasol had 18 points and 12 rebounds, and Zach Randolph had 13 points and 10 boards for a Grizzlies team suddenly on the brink of elimination. It was Memphis’ lowest point total in these playoffs.“Everybody’s saying we couldn’t score because Tony Allen’s on the floor. We put up 78 without him,” Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger said.Since going down 2-1 in the series, the top-seeded Warriors have rediscovered their regular-season form — swarming defense, pace-and-space offense and lots of long-range swishes.And for the second time in three nights, Memphis had no answer for them.“They’re moving the ball. They’re getting a lot more penetration. Everybody,” said Grizzlies guard Mike Conley, who scored 13 points wearing a mask over his still-healing face. “When you do that, it’s always tough to stop.”The Grizzlies had hoped to find an offensive rhythm to match Golden State’s scoring punch. Instead, Jeff Green and veteran Vince Carter struggled to supply the same energy and intensity on defense as Allen, who wore a suit on the bench and often waved instructions to his teammates.Curry carried the Warriors back from an early 13-point deficit, connecting on four 3-pointers to give Golden State a 26-25 lead at the end of the first quarter.He motioned his hands wildly to the roaring, golden-yellow-shirt-wearing sellout crowd following the fourth make just before the buzzer, showing as much emotion as he ever has at home.“You feel the energy of the crowd,” Curry said. “It was a cool moment.”Added Kerr: “It was a miracle we had the lead after the first quarter.” The Warriors never gave it back, either.Barnes helped build the momentum with several big plays in the second quarter, and Curry came back with another from long distance to put Golden State up 49-41 at the half.The Warriors wore down the short-handed Grizzlies following the break with a fast-pace tempo that never relented.They led 74-57 through three quarters and went ahead by 24 points early in the fourth on Thompson’s four-point play, turning the game into the type of home wipe-out that became routine in the regular season, when they rolled to a franchise-record 67 wins.“That’s our brand of basketball,” Green said. “We got a couple of stops and all of a sudden the game started changing. It’s tough for anybody to keep up with us in transition, but that has to start on the defensive end.”(ANTONIO GONZALEZ, AP Basketball Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Construction Progresses on Costa Cruises LNG Flagship

first_imgzoomImage Courtesy: Meyer Turku Construction of the Costa Smeralda, Costa Cruises’ new flagship, is continuing at the Meyer shipyard in Turku, Finland.The yellow funnel with the blue “C”,  has now been installed, Carnival Corporation, the parent company of Italy-based Costa Cruises, said.As explained, the funnel is directly connected to one of the main technological innovations in the ship. Costa Smeralda will be the first cruise ship for the world market, specifically the European one, to be fueled, both in port and while at sea, by liquefied natural gas (LNG).This is an environmental transformation that will improve air quality as LNG almost entirely prevents particulate and sulfur oxide emissions at sea and in port. It also significantly reduces emissions of nitrogen oxides and CO2.With a gross tonnage of over 180,000 tons and a capacity for 6,600 passengers, Costa Smeralda is scheduled to enter service in October 2019. The newbuild will feature a length of 337 meters and a width of 42 meters.Delivery of a second ship, the twin to Costa Smeralda, also being built by Meyer-Turku, is planned for 2021.Costa Smeralda and its twin ship are part of an expansion plan for the Costa Group fleet under which seven new ships will be delivered by 2023, for a total investment of over EUR 6 billion (USD 6.8 billion).The Panama-flagged Costa Smeralda debut is scheduled for October 20, 2019, with a 15-day inaugural cruise from Hamburg to Savona. The naming ceremony will take place in Savona on November 3, 2019.On November 4, 2019, a 6-day inaugural cruise will depart from Savona for Barcelona, Marseilles and Civitavecchia. Costa Smeralda will then continue to sail in the Western Mediterranean until April 2021, according to the company.Related:Costa Cruises to Grow Fleet Capacity by 43 Pctlast_img read more

Moroccan Students Prepare to Compete in Global Solar Vehicle Race

Rabat – Students from Rabat’s National School of Mineral Industry have announced their ongoing development of a new solar-powered vehicle designed to be used by the team for solar racing competitions in the future.After receiving substantial support following their first two prototypes — the Fennec and Eleadora1 — the team began development on their newest model: the Eleadora2, designed to improve upon many of the weaknesses of the previous models.Backed by partners such as the BMCE Bank of Africa, Crouzet, and Nareva, the team has worked to improve upon their previous models after analyzing their performance in the Moroccan Solar Race Challenge and the Somabay Egyptian Solar Challenge in 2017. Now, after over a year of design and redesign, the team has announced that the Eleadora2 will be ready to participate and represent Morocco in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge in Australia in October 2019.Solar-powered vehucle designed by students at Rabat’s National School of Mineral IndustryThe global competition began in 1987 and, at its start, took place once every three years. However, at the turn of the century, it became a biennial competition, attracting participants from countries around the world to showcase their developments in solar energy-based transportation.With participating teams being primarily made up of university students and corporations, the objective of the competition has always been to promote the research and development of solar-powered vehicles.Throughout the years, the competition has attracted a wide range of countries for participation, ranging from Japan to Brazil. However, 2019 will be the first time in the competition’s 32-year history that Morocco will be represented by a team. read more

California Supreme Court says local governments have authority to ban medical pot

by Lisa Leff, The Associated Press Posted May 6, 2013 1:06 pm MDT California Supreme Court says local governments have authority to ban medical pot shops SAN FRANCISCO – The California Supreme Court ruled Monday that cities and counties can ban medical marijuana dispensaries, a decision likely to further diminish the network of storefront pot shops and fuel efforts to have the state regulate the industry.In a unanimous opinion, the court held that California’s medical marijuana laws — the nation’s first and most liberal — neither prevent local governments from using their land-use powers to zone dispensaries out of existence nor grant authorized users convenient access to the drug.“While some counties and cities might consider themselves well-suited to accommodating medical marijuana dispensaries, conditions in other communities might lead to the reasonable decision that such facilities within their borders, even if carefully sited, well managed, and closely monitored, would present unacceptable local risks and burdens,” Justice Marvin Baxter wrote for the seven-member court.The ruling came in a legal challenge to a ban enacted by the city of Riverside in 2010, but another 200 jurisdictions have similar prohibitions on retail pot sales, the advocacy group Americans for Safe Access estimates. Many were enacted in the past five years as the number of dispensaries swelled and amid concerns that the drug had become too easy to get.A number of counties and cities were awaiting the Supreme Court ruling before moving forward with bans of their own.Of the 18 states that allow the medical use of marijuana, California is the only one where residents can obtain a doctor’s recommendation to consume it for any ailment the physician sees fit, as opposed to only for conditions such as AIDS and glaucoma. The state also is alone in not having a system for regulating growers and sellers.“The irony in California is that we regulate everything that consumers purchase and consume, and somehow this has been allowed to be a complete free-for-all,” said Jeffrey Dunn, the lawyer who represented Riverside in the successful defence of its ban. “Cities and counties looked at this and said, ‘Wait a minute. We can’t expose the public to these kind of risks,’ and the court recognized that when it comes to public safety, we have independent authority.”Marijuana advocates had argued that allowing local governments to bar dispensaries thwarts the intent of the medical marijuana law that voter’s passed nearly 17 years ago. On Monday, they blamed the absence of state oversight and the failure of local authorities to adopt operating guidelines that fall short of banning dispensaries for the court’s decision.“Today’s decision allowing localities to ban will likely lead to reduced patient access in California unless the state finally steps up to provide regulatory oversight and guidance,” said Tamar Todd, senior staff attorney for the Drug Policy Alliance. “Localities will stop enacting bans once the state has stepped up and assumed its responsibility to regulate.”Two bills are pending in the California Legislature that seek to establish a new statewide system for regulating and licensing the medical marijuana industry, and to clarify the role of dispensaries in it. Advocates hope to see language that would make it harder for local governments to outlaw dispensaries by requiring voter approval for any bans, Drug Policy Alliance Policy Manager Amanda Reiman said.Activists also are in the early stages of planning a ballot initiative that would legalize the recreational use of marijuana and regulate it like alcohol, as voters in Washington and Colorado did last year.Although California is believed by advocates and law enforcement agencies to have had thousands of dispensaries a few years ago, the number has dropped significantly as communities and federal authorities have cracked down. However, counting with any precision is impossible because record-keeping varies from community to community, many dispensaries do not advertise, and no overall state total is kept.Marijuana remains illegal under federal law, and the U.S. attorneys have threatened to seize the property of landlords who lease space to the shops. Hundreds of dispensary operators have since been evicted or closed voluntarily.Riverside city lawmakers used their zoning authority to declare storefront pot shops as public nuisances and ban the operations in 2010. The Inland Empire Patient’s Health and Wellness Center, part of the explosion of retail medical marijuana outlets, sued to stop the city from shutting it down.Larry Swerdlow, a nurse who co-founded the Inland Empire centre and a neighbouring clinic where people can obtain recommendations to use marijuana, said Monday that banning dispensaries would force residents to get the drug on the street. He also pledged to keep fighting.“I kind of look at the gay community. I mean, they had lost all these elections on gay marriage, 40 states and this kind of stuff, but they didn’t give up,” Swerdlow said as medical marijuana activists gathered at the state capitol to lobby lawmakers on the two proposed bills. “We’re not going to give up either.”Medical marijuana supporters in several cities, including San Diego, San Jose and Los Angeles, have stopped officials from either outlawing or limiting pot shops by threatening to overturn them with voter referendums.___Associated Press writer Juliet Williams in Sacramento contributed to this story.

Yukon neighbourhood at stake as miners mull new project near Dawson City

DAWSON CITY, Yn – A First Nation in Yukon is caught between development of a neighbourhood and development of a mine and the dispute has the potential to leave more than three dozen families homeless.Officials with the Tr’ondek Hwech’in First Nation say it has been asked to remove families, homes, and infrastructure from a Dawson City subdivision so mining can begin in an area that has been staked since the 1970s.Chief Roberta Joseph is optimistic about saving the neighbourhood, roughly 500 kilometres northwest of Whitehorse, and says she believes the case presents a strong argument for renewal of mining regulation in Yukon.The Yukon Surface Rights Board, which hears disputes related to accessing or using First Nation settlement land in the territory, is considering an application from two miners that, if successful, could raze the neighbourhood.Miners Michael Heydorf and Michel Vincent have already issued a vacate notice, demanding all surface and subsurface items be removed from the property on the southern edge of Dawson City.The Surface Rights Board has delayed any decision and posted a note on its website on Sept. 9, sending the matter back to Heydorf and Vincent for further details.The parcel sits on Tr’ondek Hwech’in settlement lands and was mined in the 1990s.The First Nation has invested millions over the last 15 years in planning, development, and construction of the new subdivision, which is home to about 40 families, Joseph says.

Taylor Swift left a blank space baby on social media

NEW YORK, N.Y. – Taylor Swift had a “blank space, baby” across social media Friday — and Swifties went wild.There was no immediate word from the Swift camp on what happened, but the “Blank Space” pop star is known for promotional trickery on her social streams ahead of major music drops.In addition to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr, her website went dark and the hashtag “TS6IsComing” — as in her sixth studio album — trended worldwide. Her profile pictures were also removed.All of this comes days after federal jurors in Denver found a former radio host, David Mueller, assaulted and battered Swift during a meet-and-greet in 2013. And all of this also comes as the three-year anniversary of “1989,” her last studio album, approaches in October.Perhaps more significantly: Aug. 18 is three years on the nose that Swift dropped “Shake It Off” and announced “1989” was on the way back in 2014. by The Associated Press Posted Aug 18, 2017 1:28 pm MDT Last Updated Aug 18, 2017 at 4:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email FILE – In this Feb. 4, 2017 file photo, Taylor Swift performs at the DIRECTV NOW Super Saturday Night Concert in Houston, Texas.

Inexpensive exotic cars

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The European financial crisis has created a flood of second-hand exotic-cars reaching our shores. More than 800 exotic cars worth nearly $100 million have come into Australia in the last five years under the Registered Automotive Workshop Scheme (RAWS), which operates outside conventional manufacturer and dealer networks, with rules that offer the best compromise between providing safe vehicles for the Australian car buyer and allowing collectors to import rare or unusual vehicles for personal use and ownership. The cars are imported by a handful of workshops spread across the country as well as private owners who have owned the vehicle in Europe for at least 12 months. Imported cars undergo a local compliance procedure that involve minor changes, including swapping speedometers that display kilometres rather than miles per hour (MPH). The imported super-cars are mechanically identical to the ones sold through Australian dealerships at a much higher cost, but this price honeymoon is not going to last much longer as Europe recovers from its current recession.last_img read more

BNP says govt hiked gas price to facilitate some AL men

BNP says govt hiked gas price to facilitate some AL men

first_imgCriticising prime minister Sheikh Hasina for defending gas-price hike, BNP on Tuesday said the government did it only to facilitate some ruling party men in the name of the country’s development, reports UNB.”The prime minister at her press conference yesterday (Monday) said people should accept the gas-price hike for development. We also know a price has to be paid for the development of common people. But now money is being taken from people’s pockets for the benefits of only some ruling party men,” he said.Fakhrul came up with the remarks while inaugurating the council of Doctors Association of Bangladesh (DAB) at the city’s Ladies Club.On Monday, the prime minister said people should accept the gas price hike for the sake of the country’s development as the government had to import LNG at a higher cost.Fakhrul said the gas tariff is mainly increased to give subsidy for the import of LNG. “Those who’re closely involved with the government like ministers, advisers or their favourite ones are importing LNG, and people have to pay additional prices for that.”He said the government is arbitrarily increasing the gas price, income tax and VAT as it has no accountability to people. “They (govt) have taken a position against people as neither they nor parliament were elected with people’s votes. They usurped power using the state machinery. “The BNP leader said the government’s only target is to hang onto to power and establish an individual’s rule by destroying all the state institutions and organs.He also alleged that the judiciary now has to deliver verdicts at the ‘behest of the law ministry’ as it has no independence.Claiming that their chairperson Khaleda was convicted in ‘false’ cases, Fakhrul said she is not given bail though she deserves it. “Thirty-six cases were filed against her on different false charges, including hurling bomb at a police station.”He said the government used to talk about development, though educated youths are not getting jobs. “But people from India are coming here for jobs and taking away about $10 billion…it’s become a puppet government.”Fakhrul said a strong unity of people and political parties is now crucial to overcome the current situation and defeat those who want to destroy democracy and the country’s independence and sovereignty.Meanwhile, Harun-Al Rashid and Abdus Salam were elected new president and secretary general of DAB, a pro-BNP physicians’ platform.last_img read more

Several award shows occur before that, including SAG’s own Screen Actors Guild Awards on January 27.SAG says that limiting its members from other awards shows “is utterly outrageous and unacceptable.” The actors union is asking the academy “to cease this inappropriate action.”Messages left with the academy were not immediately returned Monday.Reports have suggested that producers of the currently host-less Oscars are trying to unite the “Avengers” cast for the telecast.The Associated Presslast_img read more

transparency about such historical ties The school initially known as King’s College was founded in 1754 and adopted the name Columbia 30 years later A report released Tuesday by the university shows that the school benefited from slavery in its early years The university was stablished using donations from people made wealthy by the slave trade and students and university leaders were slaveowners Students at universities across the country have recently called on schools to acknowledge their ties to slavery and work to repair lasting racial divisions At Columbia in particular students have long been involved in campus activism demanding racial justice from anti-apartheid protests in the 1980s to more recent Black Lives Matter demonstrations Columbia has not yet announced any policy changes in the wake of its report but Columbia President Lee Bollinger told the New York Times that coming to terms with the school’s historical ties to slavery was an important step in understanding how injustices from the past continue to play out today These are some of the report’s key findings: Many of Columbia’s presidents were slaveowners “Of the ten men who served as presidents of Kings and Columbia between 1754 and the end of the Civil War at least half owned slaves at one point in their lives” the report states Other university leaders including school treasurers and college governors also owned slaves Samuel Johnson the first president of King’s College spoke out against the Atlantic slave trade but he still bought and sold slaves Slavery ‘seeped’ into parts of Columbia’s early curriculum Slavery was a regular part of the lives of many who attended King’s College Most students were from merchant families whose wealth came from the slave trade or from the sale of commercial goods produced by slaves As a result the logistics of the slave trade became a part of some lessons At least one math problem in the 1760s asked students to “calculate the profits of three investors in a slave trading voyage ‘to Guinea’” according to the report George Washington’s stepson brought a slave with him to school George Washington’s stepson John Parke Custis brought a slave known only as Joe in historical records to King’s College with him in 1773 Joe lived in a suite with Custis at King’s College and prepared breakfast for him every morning There were other slaves at the school at the time but Joe is the only one identified in historical records according to Columbia’s report Donations to Columbia often came from slaveowners King’s College frequently held fundraisers because it was “in constant need of operating funds” to maintain its building Many of the donations the school received came from prominent slaveowners Merchants involved in the slave trade were also strongly represented in the initial group of donors whose funding helped to start King’s College Nathaniel Marston a merchant who was among the most active participants in the slave
