Rohit, Bumrah help India reach semis and eliminate Bangladesh

Posted on by

first_imgBy Amlan ChakrabortyBIRMINGHAM, England (Reuters) – India sailed into the Cricket World Cup semi-finals and eliminated opponents Bangladesh in the process after Rohit Sharma’s century and Jasprit Bumrah’s four-wicket haul secured a 28-run victory over their neighbours yesterday.Rohit smashed his fourth century of this year’s tournament and featured in a massive 180-run opening partnership with KL Rahul to help India to a commanding 314-9.Shakib Al Hasan struck a defiant 66 but the lack of partnerships hurt Bangladesh, who were all out for 286 in 48 overs with Bumrah (4-55) sealing the victory by claiming two wickets with the final two deliveries.India are now second with 13 points, one behind leaders Australia, while Bangladesh are seventh with seven points.“Bangladesh played some really good cricket and deserve credit for the fight they put up,” said India captain Virat Kohli. “We had to work hard for the win and we’re happy to see a Q (qualified) in front of our name now.”Earlier, Rohit combined with Rahul (77) for the highest opening partnership at this year’s tournament to give India a strong foundation after they elected to bat.Things could have been vastly different though had Tamim Iqbal not spilled Rohit, then on nine, at midwicket off Mustafizur Rahman who went on to return 5-59.Rohit capitalised on the reprieve to smash a 92-ball 104, equalling Sri Lankan Kumar Sangakkara’s record of four hundreds in a single World Cup, which earned him the man-of-the-match.The opener clobbered five of the seven sixes in the Indian innings, besides seven fours, and overtook Australian David Warner as the leading scorer at this tournament.Soumya Sarkar ended the ominous-looking partnership in the 30th over when Rohit mistimed his drive.Rahul joined him in the pavilion after bringing up his second half-century of this tournament.MIDDLE ORDER STRUGGLES Kohli made 26, his first sub-50 score in his last six innings, and India’s middle order again struggled to get going.Rishabh Pant, who made 48 off 41 balls, scored freely but India could not really capitalise on the fine start.Mahendra Singh Dhoni made 35 but once again failed to launch a late assault which could have taken India past the 350-mark which had looked well within their reach at one stage.India played two wicketkeepers – Pant and Dinesh Karthik – as specialist batsmen to beef up their misfiring middle order but the woes persisted.A strong start was imperative to chase down a 300-plus target and Bangladesh were understandably cautious as they embarked on trying to repeat their upset victory against India at the 2007 World Cup.Bhuvneshwar Kumar, returning from a hamstring injury, and Bumrah kept it tight up front but Mohammed Shami drew the first blood for India by dismissing Tamim for 22.Fellow opener Soumya Sarkar could not convert the start he got into a big innings either, hitting Hardik Pandya straight to Kohli at short extra cover to depart for 33.Shakib brought up his sixth 50-plus score at the tournament but wickets kept tumbling at the other end.Mohammad Saifuddin (51 not out) and Sabbir Rahman (36) forged the only 50-plus partnership in the Bangladesh innings but they never really threatened to pull off a difficult chase.“It was a good effort – Mustafizur bowled well – but if one of the batsmen could have got to 80 or 90 it might have been different,” Bangladesh captain Mashrafe Mortaza said.“We were asking too much in the end. A bit of luck didn’t go our way either.”last_img read more

Phoenix Rising School’s Friday Workshops Bring Real World Skills, and Joy,…

Posted on by

first_imgFacebook23Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Phoenix Rising School“It is a problem that so many children love learning and hate school,” says Nick Gillon, The Phoenix Rising School’s Education Director. “It’s a problem when rich, rigorous, relevant and engaging experiences have become the exception rather than the norm.” At heart, he says, the issue is one of equating ‘learning’ with ‘schooling’, and academic schooling at that.But learning encompasses many other skills which are applicable in everyday life, which is why every Friday, Phoenix students from kindergarten through 6th grade get the chance to participate in workshops that run the gamut from crochet to canning, bmx bikes to propulsion science, and acrogym to candle making. The result is enthusiasm, new skills, pride in their work and – dare we say it? – joy.“I don’t know many schools that make homemade spaghetti, bike ride, weave, do pickling and lots of other things,” says Pyrenees, age ten. “This way kids can learn about things that they love,” explains Chatalain, also age ten. “Sometimes if you just get assigned something, you don’t want to be there. When you can choose it, you can easily feel like, ‘I love this because I chose it and I knew what I wanted to do.’”Students find that the skills they pick up in workshops transfer nicely to the rest of their lives. “If you didn’t know how to ride a bike and you took the biking workshop, you would know how to do that skill,” says Helen, a third grader. “And cooking, that’s something we can use every day.”For teachers, workshops offer a chance to teach a subject they’re passionate about. “I get to choose something that I’m really interested in, so it’s not like actually working because I have so much fun,” says 3rd and 4th grade teacher Megan Moskwa, who has taught canning, soap making, candle making and more.“Seeing kids get excited about making blackberry jam really makes my day,” Audrey Goodwin-Arpin concurs. Four days a week she teaches K-1, but on Fridays she has offered acrogym, crochet, jewelry making, knitting and most recently, cooking. “If I like something and I do it in my own life, I transfer that passion to them,” she says.Students and teachers also get an opportunity to mix with people they wouldn’t normally see. According to Miles, a first grader, “You can get to know other people better.” The different grouping of students add to the feeling of a village, says Audrey. “When I see the students outside at recess, I’ve already been their teacher. There’s a different level of respect and a feeling that we’re responsible for all of them, not just the ones in our class. It’s also a way to keep track of the ones that I’ve already had that have moved on from my class.”Here are some of the workshops that have been taught at Phoenix Rising over the last three years:bmx bikesartfairy housescandle makingsoccercookingsurvival skillsacrogymadvanced electronicssoap makingweavingKorean languagepuppetspianotheaterpotterycartoonjournalismjewelry makingimprovsinginglamp makingcreative dramagardeningfiber artsliving historydanceschool beautifulrace carswater colorcarpentryhandbuilt potteryanimepropulsion scienceoutdoor educationdigital photo and videolast_img read more

Posted on by

first_imgThe Selkirk College Saints Men’s Hockey program has dug into the Beaver Valley Nitehawks program to score defenceman Fruitvale native Arie Postmus to the Saints beginning in the 2013/14 B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League season.

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

Posted on by

first_img8 December 2005Afro-Swedish firm Saab Grintek is buying Aerospace Monitoring and Systems (AMS) in a R30-million deal that will give South Africa’s avionics and defence industry increased global exposure while continuing Saab’s expansion into the South African and African markets.AMS, based in Midrand, Johannesburg, focuses on proprietary aircraft monitoring and recording systems for the global aerospace and defence market. The company boasts a turnover of R58-million, 95% of which is generated by exports – and employs 75 people.Saab Grintek, a partnership between Kunene Bros Holdings (29.7%) and Saab AB (70.3%), is a high technology group specialising in telecommunications and selected niche opportunities within industrial and defence electronics.On completion of the deal, AMS will be part of Saab Avitronics, a Saab business unit focusing on avionics and electronic warfare systems, which already has operations in both Sweden and South Africa.Saab Avitronics announced on Tuesday that it had signed an agreement to acquire AMS, adding that the acquisition, still subject to approval by the regulatory authorities, was likely to be effective by April 2006.“AMS’s product portfolio and markets fit very well into our avionics business,” Saab Avitronics president Bjorn Erman said in a statement. “Especially in the areas of safety, monitoring and digital recording systems, where together we will be a significant global player.”AMS CEO Christo Weder said his company was “excited about the excellent strategic fit between our products, markets and cultures, and [we] look forward to expanding our business under the Saab brand”.Like Saab Avitronics’ current electronic warfare operations in South Africa, AMS will, from a legal point of view, be part of Saab Grintek Defence (Pty) Ltd, which is jointly owned by Saab Grintek (Pty) Ltd and Saab AB.Saab is one of the world’s leading high technology companies, with its main operations focusing on defense, aviation and space.SouthAfrica.info reporterlast_img read more

Caron Butler remains close to the game even after a year out of the NBA

first_imgRobredo should’ve resigned as drug czar after lack of trust issue – Panelo MOST READ View comments Butler, a journeyman who played for nine NBA teams in his 14-year career, has also become a willing mentor for the up-and-comers.“I’m working while also staying connected to the game of basketball, talking and educating while also seeing some of my young guys that still need that guidance that even when I’m not in the locker room, I could come from a different objective and different place where I could give valuable pieces of information to them,” he said.Butler is encouraging players to be more vocal about their advocacies and take the opportunity that basketball provides to be a positive influence to their thousands of fans, especially in the age where it’s easy to connect to everyone through social media.“I think it’s great when you see athletes outside of what they’re considered to be. Whenever you have a talent, you want them to stay in that bubble as that talent. All you want to see them do is play basketball or play football. People are human beings, they have feelings. It’s good to see athletes use their platform and following to educate to the best of their knowledge and talk about things that is a problem. I want to see more of it,” he said.“The only thing I say is you’re an athlete and you do that, educate yourself on what you’re talking about. If you want to go out there and be vocal, be sure that you’re educated enough to talk about these things and answer the questions.”ADVERTISEMENT Old habits die hard and Caron Butler knows that well.One year removed from the NBA, but he still can’t shake off his straw-chewing routine.ADVERTISEMENT Trump signs bills in support of Hong Kong protesters Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Celebrity chef Gary Rhodes dies at 59 with wife by his side Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
