Powered by Firework Sony Pictures Sports Network (SPSN) aims to galvanize the passion that millions of Indians have for cricket by showcasing the best moments from the historical tournament that had the Indian cricket team donning the blue jersey, in the series, ‘The Blue Revolution’. The 12-part series revisits India’s landmark victory in the 1985 B&H World Championship of Cricket which was the first major tournament India won in colored clothing and established its dominance in cricket across the globe.Advertisement SPSN deep dives into the historical archives to revisit the victorious campaign of the 1985 B&H World Championship of Cricket in ‘The Blue Revolution’ and will showcase how India marked its dominance in cricket, ultimately giving rise to the term ‘Men in Blue. Cricket fans will relive the action-packed iconic performances from the 1985 Indian team as they paved their way towards reaffirming their status as world champions after a string of disappointing results since the 1983 World Cup win in England.Advertisement The series launches on 4th May 2020 and will be aired exclusively on SONY SIX and SONY SIX HD channels from 8:30 PM.As a part of the build-up to the marquee episodes and matches, SPSN has organized a series of live interactive chat sessions with some of the Indian cricket legends and heroes of the unbeaten class of ’85 – Ravi Shastri, Roger Binny, Madan Lal and Laxman Sivaramakrishnan. The sessions will be hosted by Rajdeep Sardesai and Joy Bhattacharya, and sports enthusiasts can watch them in conversation LIVE at @SonySportsIndia, the official Facebook page of Sony Pictures Sports Network.Advertisement The World Championship of Cricket was a ‘mini’ World Cup played between seven teams: India, Australia, England, Pakistan, New Zealand, Sri Lanka and West Indies. Before touching down in Australia in 1985, the Indian team had lost three series on the bounce and were one of the least favorites to win the tournament, even after the heroic 1983 World Cup finals win over West Indies. Led by the astute Sunil Gavaskar, the Indian team donned the Blue Jersey for the first time and went on to beat all teams in the series and eventually winning the finals against archrivals Pakistan. Since then, only one color has been associated with the Indian cricket team and this built the foundation for the ‘The Blue Revolution’.Watch the BLUE REVOLUTION starting from 4th May 2020 at 8:30 PM exclusively on SONY SIX and SONY SIX HD channels  Advertisementlast_img read more

Fair Haven in No Rush to Crush Brush Processing

Posted on by

first_imgSpitz called the processing center a “missed opportunity,” and a prime location for a dog park, or a community garden. “It is not an appropriate location any longer,” Spitz said. “The neighborhood has changed. It’s not fair to our lives. It’s not fair to our health.” “I don’t see any way to relocate the facility in the borough, so the only other choice would be to close it down,” Mayor Ben Lucarelli said. “Then we’re left with handling the disposable brush in a proper and environmentally conscious way.” Since it’s been a mutually beneficial partnership for both parties, Spitz wondered if the borough could pursue a similar interlocal agreement to take brush processing outside the municipal border. Lucarelli said closing the facility would probably mean adding two more employees to the Department of Public Works and purchasing a $400,000 rear loader vehicle, like a garbage truck. Additional transportation costs would also come into play. To avoid transport during peak school hours, early morning drop-off and afternoon pickup, the grinding can begin as early as 7 a.m. Fair Haven Police Chief Joseph McGovern told residents Monday the operation’s early start time is protected by ordinance. “You’re talking about adding millions of dollars to the budget in order to accomplish this,” Lucarelli said. In an interview, borough administrator Teresa Casagrande said the location of the site – between William Street and several baseball fields, basketball courts and a soccer pitch at Fair Haven Fields – is a pre-existing condition of the neighborhood that dates back to the 1950s. In return, maintenance of Fair Haven parks and municipal grounds, as well as street-sweeping and storm-water catch-basin cleaning falls under the purview of Rumson. Fair Haven and Rumson entered into a shared service agreement in April 2012, trading key maintenance services to collectively cut costs. Lucarelli said it’s something he has explored, but the borough’s Fair Haven Fields Natural Area Advisory Committee quickly squashed. Under the terms, Fair Haven handles the collection and processing of both boroughs’ brush, as well as offering engineering services from in-house professionals for small jobs. FAIR HAVEN – JenniferSpitz said the decorativemolding is rattling off thewalls of her home and anearby brush processingoperation is to blame. Resident Bob Donnelly questioned whether the site could be relocated deeper within the 73-acre Fair Haven Fields tract, possibly in the natural area. Spitz resides on William Street, in a neighborhood that backs up to a wooded area of Fair Haven Fields. At Monday’s borough council meeting she played a 45-second video filmed from the deck in her backyard. Sptiz said twice a year, for days and sometimes two to three weeks at a time, her home shakes, the backyard is unusable and her kids are unable to ride their bikes to school because of the operation. “We’ve worked to makethis as efficient a processas we can. We’ve gottenthe collection down to sixmonths out of the year,when it used to be nine.And now we only processtwice a year and try to havethe operation completed inless than a week, weatherpending,” Casagrande said,noting the job is completedbefore Fair Haven Day andin the late fall. The process includes 18-wheeler trucks transporting brush collected from Fair Haven and Rumson to the facility before it’s loaded into an industrial grinder. “They are quite defensive of that area and want to keep it natural. So I don’t see Fair Haven Fields as a viable option. Hypothetically, if we got approval of that committee, then we’d have to get approval from the county, followed by the state. And from what I understand that’s exceedingly difficult,” Lucarelli said. Casagrande told residents a cooperative county facility for peninsula towns at Fort Monmouth was another option investigated by the mayor, but “Fort Monmouth turned it down.” “I can’t accept ‘no’ any longer,” Sptiz said in a post-meeting interview. “I’m asking (the council) to represent us and find a better way to do this, whether that’s a partnership with another town or with the county. I’d like their help in figuring that out. I know they’re volunteers, which is why I’m willing to volunteer and do the legwork. I just need some direction. I’m pleading with them to help.” It wasn’t the woodland setting that was the focal point, but rather the video’s soundtrack, a constant chorus of industrial buzzing and grinding coming from beyond the trees at the borough’s designated processing site. The next Fair HavenFields Advisory CommitteeMeeting is scheduled forJuly 17.last_img read more

The 21-year old also helped the Nitehawks to a KIJHL championship during the 2011/12 season. “Arie is a mobile, puck-moving defenceman who will fit in nicely with the style of game that we play,” says Saints head coach Jeff Dubois. “He’s been a key piece of a top-end program in the KIJHL and gone through the experience of being a leader and contributor to a championship team, which is important to us. I look forward to Arie developing into a productive and important player at the college level.” Postmus plans to enroll in Selkirk’s Business Administration program. “I’m excited to be able to play close to home and be a part of the team’s new winning tradition,” saidPostmus, who describes himself as a solid all-around defensemen who takes care of his defensive zone first and can play in all situations.”I’m going to focus on getting really good grades and working hard every day to help the team capture another championship.” Postmus is the third defenceman and seventh player overall to commit to the Saints for the 2013/14 season. He joins forwards Darnell Dyck (Langley, BCHL) and Garrett Kucher (Osoyoos, KIJHL), defencemen Stefan Gonzales (Aldergrove, PJHL) and Ryan Procyshyn (Delta, PJHL) and goaltenders Myles Hovdebo (LaRonge, SJHL) and Marcus Beesley (Nelson, KIJHL).last_img read more
