It has been an exceptional tournament for our Indian Jr. Men’s Hockey Team! Give it up to the Runners-up of the 9th Sultan of Johor Cup – #TeamIndia! 👏🏼#IndiaKaGame #SultanOfJohorCup #SOJC pic.twitter.com/GMCMLLbm70— Hockey India (@TheHockeyIndia) October 19, 2019India upped the ante in the second quarter, and this time it was Oliver Payne in goal who was holding the score level. First he saved Dilpreet Singh’s creative shot, before pulling off a reflex save from Gursahibjit’s deflection from yards out.The team went into half-time locked in a 0-0 stalemate.The trend continued in the third quarter, India forcing the play and Great Britain forced inside their own half for long periods playing on the counter. India won their fifth PC of the game in the 36th minute, and once again Mazarelo was at hand to save Pratap Lakra’s drag flick.Minutes later India had a golden opportunity courtesy of Maninder, but Shilanand Lakra’s deflection fell straight at Mazarelo to kick away. The scoreboard remained untouched at the end of the third quarter.Much like in their round robin encounter, in the fourth quarter India’s play gained an urgency. More and more Great Britain were being pushed back and in the 49th minute, India won another penalty corner, their seventh of the game. This time a variation proved to be key, Mandeep’s dragflick smartly deflected by Gursahibjit Singh to give India lead.Within a minute though Great Britain won their first penalty corner of the game. Despite the initial save on the line by Sanjay, the ricochet fell to Stuart Rushmere who slotted home first time to draw his team level.Then, a ricochet fell to Rushmere, who slotted home to give Great Britain the win and the title. Johor Bahru: The Indian junior men’s hockey team lost to Great Britain 1-2 in the final of the 9th Sultan of Johor Cup here on Saturday.Right from the hooter it was India forcing the pace, and put Great Britain on the back foot. They were forcing the attacks, creating more circle penetrations but their finishing was letting them down. The first real opportunity fell to Maninder Singh, who dribbled past three Great Britain players to singlehandedly fashion a shooting chance, which flew just over the crossbar.Soon enough though James Mazarelo was called into action in Great Britain’s goal, first saving a sharp chance off Sudeep before parrying three consecutive penalty corners, to ensure his team went into the break level.center_img FinalGreat BritainIndiaindian junior hockey team First Published: October 20, 2019, 10:00 AM ISTlast_img read more

India’s historic victory over New Zealand gives Pakistan reason to smile

Posted on by

first_imgIndia rode on half-centuries from Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma to defeat New Zealand for the first time in a T20 International in six attempts at the Feroz Shah Kotla.The 53-run victory was memorable also for Ashish Nehra who played his last professional match before retiring from the game after 18 years as an India cricketer. There were joyous scenes around the Kotla as Nehra thanked the crowd for their support.Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan picked Nehra on their shoulders during the lap of honour and the players then posed with the veteran pacer for one final photo before he walked off the international arena.However, India’s crushing win over New Zealand also gave Pakistan reason to smile. The result in Delhi on Wednesday meant New Zealand slipped from the top spot in the ICC’s T20 International rankings and were replaced by Pakistan.Kohli is leading India on Mission 111. He wants the team to be No.1 across formats. India are currently ranked No.1 in Tests, No.2 in ODIs and and No.5 in T20 Internationals.India, who currently have 116 points, can move up to second position in the T20 International rankings if they win the series 3-0. That would take India to 122 points and leave New Zealand with 114.In that scenario, Pakistan will retain their top rank with a tally of 124 points. “Even a 2-1 series win for India will be enough for Pakistan to move to the top with New Zealand slipping to 121 points,” an ICC press release said.advertisementHere are all the possible scenarios from the India vs New Zealand series:- India win 3-0 – India 122 points, New Zealand 114 points- India win 2-1- New Zealand 121 points, India 118 points- New Zealand win 2-1- New Zealand 126 points, India 115 points- New Zealand win 3-0 – New Zealand 132 points, India 111 pointslast_img read more

Cricket World Cup: Buttler and Root tons in vain as Pakistan stun England

Posted on by

first_imgEoin Morgan routinely inserted Pakistan despite the conditions – a brown pitch and gentle sunshine. He likes to chase runs, ignoring the peculiar tensions that come into play in a World Cup match, even in the preliminary stages. Runs on the board count for more when the match really matters. Woakes silences Pakistan fans but England left with little to shout about So they cannot chase absolutely anything. Even after an immaculate hundred from Joe Root and a typically majestic one from Jos Buttler, England were beaten by a wonderfully tenacious Pakistan, oblivious to the torments they experienced here against West Indies three days ago.Pakistan, reinforcing their reputation for producing tales of the unexpected, won a thrilling encounter, which had a capacity crowd captivated as England tried to pull off the highest run chase in World Cup history. They needed 349 for victory and fell 14 runs short. Sometimes the mistakes – and there were plenty of them – were as entertaining as the moments of magic – and there were a few of those as well. Quick guide England v Pakistan: match zone Pakistan cricket team Share on Facebook Hide Soon the anxieties England displayed in the field were mirrored at the crease. Roy tried an ill-judged sweep against Shadab Khan and was given lbw; this misjudgment was compounded by another, with Jonny Bairstow an accomplice, the openers misguidedly deciding to review even though the ball was shown to be bang on target.Bairstow only flickered before nibbling at Wahab and Morgan, having been pinned down for three balls by Hafeez, was bowled by a quicker delivery, while Ben Stokes was caught behind off the other veteran off-spinner, Shoaib Malik. From 118 for four the bankers, Root and Buttler, gave England hope. Both played predictably to their strengths. Root composed, getting off strike with ease, Buttler delivering enough powerful strikes to keep the required run-rate in the right vicinity as they added 130 together. Both departed immediately after reaching three figures, in each case caught at short third man. Cricket World Cup 2019 Was this helpful?

Share on Twitter Share on Pinterest Twitter Pakistan declined to roll over conveniently this time. Against West Indies they mustered 105 all out. Here they reached that figure in the 19th over with one wicket down. All the batsmen were eager to atone for Friday’s rout. They produced a spirited, measured performance with the bat but they were assisted by the fact England were so badly out of kilter in the field. This was reflected by a poor review against Imam-ul-Haq, fielders being all too easily riled by comments from the stands and most obviously a dropped catch by Jason Roy, who seemed out of control for most of the day. This was a skier from the bat of Mohammad Hafeez on 14, the sort that Roy would routinely catch in practice, after which the threat of Adil Rashid, who was bowling at the time, was greatly diminished. Hafeez would punish England for this error with the outstanding knock – 84 from 62 balls – in a Pakistan innings in which all the top five fired.England were grateful for 10 overs of controlled off-spin from Moeen Ali, who took the first three wickets to fall via an alert stumping by Buttler and two excellent catches in the deep by Chris Woakes, who would finish with four in total, a record for an English outfielder in ODI cricket. Mark Wood also impressed on his return to the side, generating good pace, two wickets and managing to retain a modicum of control in the final overs. But on this occasion, on this pitch, the bowlers needed more than the scanty support they received in the field; there were misfields, overthrows and some understandable scowls – even from the new boy Jofra Archer – as runs were donated as freely as election promises. Topics Drop of the dayJason Roy, at mid-off, dropped one of the all-time clangers when he let the ball bounce out of his hands after Adil Rashid had lured Mohammad Hafeez into sending the ball into the sky. Hafeez, then on 14, went on to add another 70. Facebook Since you’re here… Jos Buttler struck a century but his dismissal marked the beginning of the end for England.

Cricket World Cup: Mohammad Hafeez and Eoin Morgan on Pakistan’s victory over England – video Pakistan, summoning up the spirit of 1992 after 11 consecutive one-day international defeats, held their nerve despite the threat posed by England’s finest, Buttler and Root. Their figures may not suggest this but Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz, neither of whom were in Pakistan’s original World Cup squad, combined resolutely in the final overs; they were not going to allow this game to slip away. Once Buttler had been dismissed England required 61 from just over five overs and this was beyond their much-vaunted tail. The target of 58 from the last five overs with four wickets remaining was too much against Wahab and Amir despite the scurrying of Woakes and Moeen. So Pakistan deservedly prevailed to reignite their campaign. Meanwhile England’s out-cricket had been slapdash and their confidence that they can chase anything at their beloved Trent Bridge flawed.Despite the heroics of Root and Buttler they did not deserve to win, which created the oddity of the first two centurions of the tournament ending up on the losing side. England do not lose very often when Root and Buttler have hit centuries but here was an indication of how superbly Pakistan responded to their defeat against West Indies and how poorly England reacted to their straightforward victory over South Africa. The discipline England displayed in the field at the Oval deserted them in disturbing fashion. They were edgy, impatient and occasionally ill-tempered. It was as if they had been duped by the dismal display of Pakistan on this ground last week and that they believed all the plaudits that had come their way after their first game. For a while it looked as if they expected, like all of us sagely looking on, an easy ride. When this did not come to pass they became grumpily distracted.

Chris Fowler Drawing Some Criticism For Urban Meyer Suspension Comments

Posted on by

first_imgurban meyer on the sideline against northwesternINDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA – DECEMBER 01: Head coach Urban Meyer of the Ohio State Buckeyes walks the side lines in the game against the Northwestern Wildcats in the first quarter at Lucas Oil Stadium on December 01, 2018 in Indianapolis, Indiana. (Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images)Back in August, Ohio State announced that head coach Urban Meyer would be suspended three games for the way he handled allegations of domestic violence against wide receivers coach Zach Smith. Ryan Day, who is now the head-coach-in-waiting, took over and led the Buckeyes to a 3-0 mark during the suspension.Meyer, who announced his retirement a few weeks back, is coaching his final game for Ohio State in the Rose Bowl today against Washington. Meyer cited health reasons as a big factor in his decision to hang it up.Ahead of the game, ESPN announcer Chris Fowler attempted to touch on Meyer’s suspension when describing the head coach’s overall 2018 season. He’s getting some flak for his phrasing.Fowler said that Meyer was suspended for “mishandling some situations” at Ohio State.“Mishandling some situations”is how we’re describing Urban Meyer’s decision to protect his assistant coach who was abusing his wife? Ummmm…#RoseBowl— Jackie Pepper ✊?☮️? (@Jackie_Pepper) January 1, 2019I love Chris Fowler but “mishandling some situations” is a cop out talking about Urban Meyer’s suspension.— Peter Bukowski (@Peter_Bukowski) January 1, 2019Did I hear @cbfowler describing Urban Meyer overlooking and covering up domestic violence as “mishandling some situations”?— Jordan Fiegel (@JGFiegel) January 1, 2019″The embarrassment (for Urban Meyer) of the 3 game suspension for mishandling some situations”Good job, ESPN. That’s the hard-hitting analysis I expect from a broadcast booth— Bob James (@robertjamesii) January 1, 2019Fowler says Urban Meyer was suspended for “mishandling some situations” Yeah, ill say so. The whitewashing begins.— The Young Pope Appreciator (@frogbaby236) January 1, 2019That certainly isn’t wrong, but it’s drawing ire from the internet. Many are wondering why he didn’t note the fact that the situation included alleged domestic violence.Midway through the second quarter, it’s 14-3 Ohio State. Meyer could be on his way out a winner.It’s unclear if Meyer will coach again, but it doesn’t look likely. If he truly is done, he’s one of the best to ever do it.last_img read more

Updated Government Histories Available Online

Posted on by

first_imgNova Scotians interested in the history of their provincial government now have a completely revised and updated version of a popular web product, Government Administrative Histories Online, compiled by Nova Scotia Archives and Records Management. Government Administrative Histories Online is a database containing the administrative history of 110 public bodies, some dating back 250 years. This includes the Department of Justice which traces its origins to 1749. The updated online resource also includes public bodies less than a decade old, including the Office of African Nova Scotian Affairs, established in 2004, and the Department of Health Promotion and Protection, established in 2006. The latest update is from January 2009, when Economic Development changed its name to Economic and Rural development, to better reflect its role and goals. “We are pleased to bring this significantly revised and updated government resource to the web,” said provincial archivist Brian Speirs. “We aim to provide a one-stop source for historical information on all government departments, past and present, as well as all current agencies, boards, commissions and offices.” Each public body has its own entry, highlighting the body’s origins, mandate and functions, and changes in name or responsibilities. You will also be referred to entries for related public bodies, particularly predecessor and successor departments. The information is based on official sources, primarily statutes and orders in council, as well as government publications or other authoritative sources. Government Administrative Histories Online is on the Nova Scotia Archives and Records Management website at http://www.gov.ns.ca/nsarm/gaho/ .

UN commission set to adopt safer food standards against diseasecausing contaminants

Posted on by

Some 500 delegates from about 100 countries and numerous nongovernmental organizations are expected to attend the 3-7 July meeting in Geneva of the Codex Alimentarius Commission, a joint venture of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the UN World Health Organization (WHO). If adopted, the proposals would set standards that would also facilitate international food trade by eliminating unjustified technical barriers.Under consideration are issues that are important to developing and developed countries alike, such as:Maximum limit in fish of lead, which can cause a wide range of disorders, including anemia and hepatic and neurological disorders.Maximum limits in rice, marine bivalve molluscs and cephalopods of cadmium, which can cause kidney damage.Measures to prevent contamination of Brazil nuts with cancer-causing aflatoxins.Measures to prevent and reduce food and feed contamination with highly toxic and carcinogenic Dioxin and Dioxin-like PCB.Some topics on the agenda are likely to cause intense debate such as the establishment of a Task Force on antibiotic resistance in bacteria, a potential threat to human health. The incorrect use of antibiotics in animals can lead to drug resistance in infections in humans who eat their meat. The Task Force would develop a risk assessment policy and strategies to reduce food safety risks associated with antibiotics use.Codex Alimentarius standards form the basis of food legislation in many countries and are recognized as international benchmarks by one of the multilateral agreements of the UN World Trade Organization (WTO). read more

New UN report reveals millions of refugee children missing out on education

Posted on by

Esther Nyakong, 17 year-old Sudanese refugee, in Morneau Shepell Secondary School for girls, Kakuma Refugee Camp, Kenya. Photo: UNHCR/Benjamin Loyseau “Underlining the discussions will be the target of Sustainable Development Goal 4, [to] ‘ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning,’ an aim that will not be realized by 2030 without meeting the education needs of vulnerable populations, including refugees and other forcibly displaced people,” the UN agency stressed.Sheer gravity of the challengesThe report also revealed that the global school-age refugee population remained relatively stable at 3.5 million between 2001 and 2010, but since then, it has grown on average by 600,000 children and adolescents annually. In 2014 alone, this population grew by 30 per cent.While noting that governments, UNHCR and its partners have made progress in enrolling more numbers of refugees in school, the agency said that the sheer increase in the number new refugees makes actual progress a daunting task.Given the recent numbers, UNHCR estimates that an average of at least 12,000 additional classrooms and 20,000 additional teachers are needed on an annual basis.Furthermore, the agency highlighted that refugees often live in regions where governments are already struggling to educate their own children. They face the additional task of finding places for schools, trained teachers and learning materials for tens or even hundreds of thousands of newcomers, who often do not speak the language of instruction and have frequently missed out on three to four years of schooling.Refugee education in crisis: three standout statisticsAccording to the report, more than half of the world’s out-of-school refugee children and adolescents are located in just seven countries: Chad, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Lebanon, Pakistan and Turkey.The Syrian crisis – the face of the dire situationExemplified by the crisis in Syria, the report further shows how conflict has the potential to reverse positive education trends. Presenting the figures, the UN agency notes that while in 2009, 94 per cent of Syrian children attended primary and lower secondary school, by June 2016, only 60 per cent are in school, leaving 2.1 million children and adolescents without access to education in the country.In neighbouring countries, more than 4.8 million Syrian refugees are registered with the agency, amongst them around 35 per cent are of school-age. In Turkey, only 39 per cent of school-age refugee children and adolescents are enrolled in primary and secondary education, 40 per cent in Lebanon, and 70 per cent in Jordan. “This means that nearly 900,000 Syrian school-age refugee children and adolescents are not in school,” noted UNHCR.Shedding light on refugee situations receiving less attentionThe UNCHR report also looks at some of the more protracted refugee situations that receive less attention. “This represents a crisis for millions of refugee children,” UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi said in a news release issued by his Office (UNHCR). “Refugee education is sorely neglected, when it is one of the few opportunities we have to transform and build the next generation so they can change the fortunes of the tens of millions of forcibly displaced people globally,” he added.According to the agency’s new report, Missing Out: Refugee Education in Crisis, only half of refugee children have access to primary education, compared with a global average of more than 90 per cent. And as these children become older, the gap further widens: only 22 per cent of refugee adolescents attend secondary school compared to a global average of 84 per cent. At the higher education level, just one per cent of refugees attend university, compared to a global average of 34 per cent.These findings are particularly pertinent as next week, global leaders will be gathering in new York for two major relevant meetings: the UN General Assembly’s Summit for Refugees and Migrants on 19 September, and, the very next day, a Leaders’ Summit on the Global Refugee Crisis, hosted by United States President Barack Obama.In the release today, UNCHR said that at both summits, it will call on governments, donors, humanitarian agencies and development partners, as well as private-sector partners, to strengthen their commitment to ensuring that every child receives a quality education. For instance, in Kakuma refugee camp in northern Kenya, the report profiles the remarkable story of a young South Sudanese girl, Esther, who has caught up on multiple years of missed education to reach the last year of secondary school. Only three per cent of children in Kakuma camp are enrolled in secondary school, and less than one per cent make it to higher education.Given the fact that the average length of displacement for a refugee in a protracted situation currently stands at 20 years, the report calls for donors to transition from a system of emergency to multi-year and predictable funding that allows for sustainable planning, quality programming and sound monitoring of education for refugees and national children and adolescents.Story of a young refugee who is now a volunteer teacherThe report concludes with the inspiring story of Nawa, a Somali refugee who only started her education aged 16 at a community learning centre in Malaysia. Under four years later, she is due to start a foundation course at university while giving back to her school as a volunteer teacher. “Nawa’s story proves it is never too late to invest in refugee education, and investment in one refugee’s education means the entire community benefits,” said High Commissioner Grandi. read more

Poll Should the introduction of new shortterm letting laws to regulate Airbnb

New laws regulating companies such as Airbnb come into effect from 1 July. No (5442) Poll Results: Airbnb HQ in Dublin Image: Rollingnews.ie LATER THIS YEAR, new laws will be introduced to regulate property owners who let out their homes on a short-term basis. From 1 July, new caps will apply to homeowners who want to rent out their residences, while the letting of second properties on a short-term basis will no longer be allowed.However, TheJournal.ie has learned that Airbnb is encouraging hosts to contact politicians about the proposed regulations to request that they are postponed.The company is understood to have told homeowners to ask politicians to seek a “grace period” in the introduction of the legislation and to tell Oireachtas members what effect the new laws will have on them and their local community.Airbnb suggests that the postponement of the laws would allow for fairer regulations that would support tourism in a way that benefits everyone.But those who support the laws say that hosts have had enough time to prepare for them, and suggest that they will help alleviate the housing crisis.So today we’re wondering: Should the introduction of new short-term letting laws be postponed?

Le RoyaumeUni a connu son mois de décembre le plus froid depuis

Posted on by

first_imgLe Royaume-Uni a connu son mois de décembre le plus froid depuis 100 ansComme une grande partie des pays européens, le Royaume-Uni fait face cette année à un hiver particulièrement rude. Au cours des cent dernières années, l’Etat n’avait jamais connu un mois de décembre aussi froid que celui qu’il vient de traverser.L’office météo britannique, le Met Office, a en effet annoncé n’avoir, depuis le début des relevés de température en 1910, jamais enregistré un mois de décembre aussi froid que celui qui vient de s’achever. La température moyenne a atteint moins un degré le mois dernier, quand celle d’un mois de décembre est généralement de 4,2 degrés. Le précédent record, enregistré en 1981, avait atteint la moyenne de 0,1°C au Royaume-Uni.À lire aussiCanicule : 7 règles d’or pour survivre à la chaleurTous mois confondus, décembre 2010 fut le plus froid observé depuis février 1986 en Angleterre et au Pays de Galles, et depuis février 1947 en Ecosse. Quant à l’Irlande du Nord, elle n’avait au cours des cent dernières années, jamais connu un mois aussi froid.Plus globalement, c’est l’année 2010 toute entière qui s’est montrée très froide, avec une moyenne de huit degrés, indique le Met Office, soulignant que l’Etat a connu deux vagues précoces de froid très intense, en novembre et en décembre. Le mois dernier, la température a ainsi régulièrement atteint -10 à -20°C pendant la nuit, et comme le note l’office, seules huit périodes de froid comparables ont été recensées au cours des cinquante dernières années.Le 10 janvier 2011 à 17:24 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

John Legend Is Google Assistants First Celeb Cameo

Posted on by

first_imgStay on target Easily Assign Tasks With Google AssistantGoogle Defends Letting Humans Listen to Virtual Assistant Queries Hey Alexa, how much does a Google Home speaker cost?This week’s rollout of John Legend’s velvety voice on Google Assistant has me seriously considering an AI swap.Initially revealed at last year’s Google I/O conference, the celebrity cameo is finally available in the US on any device with Google Assistant, including Google Home Hub and Android or iOS smartphones.“Imagine hearing the silky smooth voice of John Legend answering your pressing questions every day. Or narrating your local weather forecast. Or singing you happy birthday,” Manuel Bronstein, VP of product for Google Assistant, wrote in a blog announcement. “Well, that dream can now be a reality.”Turn on the singer-songwriter’s dulcet tones in the settings of the Assistant app or by simply telling your device to “talk like a Legend.”Then sit back and relax to the sound of Legend’s lilting words as he makes jokes or answers questions like “What’s the temperature outside” or “Why is the sky blue?”You can even get a bit cheeky with the EGOT winner by asking “Hey Google, who is Chrissy Teigen?” or “Hey Google, are we just ordinary people?” Or, for the ultimate treat, try “Hey Google, serenade me.”(Other Easter eggs, as spotted by CNET: “Are you John Legend?”, “Who’s your celebrity crush?”, “What’s your favorite song?”, “What’s your best pickup line?”, “Compliment me.”)Talk fast, though, because Legend’s voice is available only for a “limited time.”“Cameo voices on the Assistant have been one of the top requests we’ve heard from you, and with the help of state-of-the-art speech synthesis model WaveNet, they’re now a reality,” Bronstein said. “We hope you enjoy hearing John’s voice as the Google Assistant as much as he enjoyed his time in the recording studio.” More on Geek.com:Walmart Launches Voice-Enabled Grocery Shopping with Google AssistantGoogle Assistant Now Books Reservations in 43 StatesGoogle Assistant Will Now Alert You When It Predicts Flight Delayslast_img read more
