Ganguly writing book on mind games

first_imgKolkata, Nov 1 (PTI) Former India captain Sourav Ganguly is penning a book on mind games in sport even as he considers authoring books nightmarish, something which has also discouraged him from writing his autobiography. “To sit and write, dictate someone, then correct it and make sure its on time with the publisher, its a nightmare,” Ganguly said here during a book release function. “I was chased for a long time but Im not a great writer. Ive been asked to write a book on mind games in sport,” he said about his upcoming book. “Its a book on how the players mindset is important to develop the sport and I found that pretty boring actually,” he confessed. One of the most successful Indian captains and in the backdrop of his controversy with Greg Chappell makes Ganguly a perfect autobiography material. “I have not started thinking about my autobiography. Honestly I dont have time and patience to write about what Ive done for 15-20 years.” Not an avid book reader, Ganguly said: “When I became captain a lot of people asked me have you read The Art of Captaincy by Mike Brearley or the book by Sunil Gavaskar… I said yes only the front page.” PTI TAP AT ATlast_img read more

IOA drops entire triathlon team from Asian Games, equestrian show jumping added

first_imgNew Delhi, Jul 7 (PTI) The Indian Olympic Association today made several changes to the country’s contingent of athletes for the upcoming Asian Games, dropping the entire triathlon team for furnishing “misleading information” by the national federation. The IOA had on July 3 announced a 524-member contingent but after a long meeting today, as many as six athletes were rejected on various grounds. Eight athletes from sport climbing — who were not in the list of 524 — were considered later but out of the eight, five were rejected today. The participation of these three athletes from sport climbing depends on the acceptance of their entries by the Asian Games organisers. There could also be some changes in the 10-member swimming team already named. “All the four triathletes who were named in the earlier list were rejected today as we were misled by the federation. We were earlier told that the relay event was happening for the first time (in Asian Games). But today, we found out the information given to us was incorrect, the relay event is happening for the second or third time and Indian team is not in the top 15,” IOA president Narinder Batra told PTI. After a lot of meetings and representations by the aggrieved players, a three-member equestrian show jumping team was cleared in addition to the four from the eventing team already named on July 3. “We have added three athletes in show jumping in equestrian,” Batra said after a meeting attended by IOA secretary general Rajeev Mehta.advertisement In sambo, the IOA had earlier cleared six athletes (2 men and 4 women) but today five of them were rejected after anomalies were found in the figures provided to the national Olympic body. Now only one sambo player — Srikanth — will travel to Indonesia. “We have rejected five sambo players from the six named earlier after a thorough review. We found some anomalies in the figures given to us earlier by the federation. When we cross checked, we found that the figures were not correct,” the IOA chief said. In sailing, the IOA replaced two players with another two but Batra said this will be subject to a Delhi High Court order, which is expected to come up soon. “We have named Varsha Gautham and Shweta Shervegar in place of Ekta Yadav and Shaila Charles. Varsha and Shweta are silver medallists in the Asian Championships while Ekta and Saila are bronze medallists. “This selection is subject to Delhi High Court order which is coming soon, may be tomorrow. The HC had asked our view and we have given it.” PTI PDS PDS AHAHlast_img read more

World Cup 2019: New Zealand retain top spot after dominant win over Afghanistan

first_imgNew Zealand have jumped to the top of the World Cup 2019 points table after beating Afghanistan by — wickets in Taunton on June 8. This was New Zealand’s third victory in as many matches while Afghanistan find themselves languishing at the bottom with a second successive defeat.Chasing 173, NZ had the worst possible start as they lost Martin Guptill off the 1st ball of the pursuit when Aftab Alam induced a faint edge off his bat that landed in the hands of Najibullah Zadran stationed at point. Soon, Aftab also dismissed Colin Munro whose half-hearted waft on a bouncer found Hamid Hassan’s safe hands at third-man.But that’s where the joy stopped for the Asian team as Ross Taylor and Kane Williamson combined to post an 89-run partnership to take NZ close. Even though Taylor fell to a loose shot off the bowling of Aftab, new batsman Tom Latham combined with his captain to take NZ home.9 wickets between James Neesham and Lockie Ferguson, combined with an unbeaten 79 from #KaneWilliamson saw New Zealand overcome Afghanistan in Taunton.They now have 3 wins in as many games, and remain at the apex of #CWC19 standings!SCORECARD World Cup (@cricketworldcup) June 8, 2019Earlier, put into bat on a greenish pitch under considerable cloud cover, Afghan openers Noor Ali and Hazratullah Zazai made a solid start to the innings. Zazai was particularly severe on anything pitched in his arc as he swung merrily to give the Kiwi bowlers a few headaches in the 1st powerplay.advertisementAt 66/0 after 11 overs, Afghanistan looked set for a big total but the introduction of James Neesham turned the match on its head. Neesham bowled with discipline and found some swing early on to trigger a collapse that saw Afghanistan lose 4 wickets for just 4 runs added to the total. While Neesham picked up the scalps of Zazai, Rahmat Shah and Gulbadin Naib, Lockie Ferguson sent back Noor Ali.Rain intervened twice but Neesham continued his superb form across interruptions to add 2 more wickets of Najibullah Zadran and Mohammad Nabi to celebrate his maiden 5-for in ODIs. This was also just the 2nd five-wicket haul in the WC so far.For Afghanistan, Hashmatullah Shahidi played a fighting knock of 59 off 99 balls to take his team to a respectable score when it looked like they could fold for 120-130. His batting with the tailenders was especially noticeable as he farmed the strike well along with hitting the lusty blows off bad balls. Shahidi was the last wicket to fall as Ferguson finished with 4 wickets of his own.Ferguson also played a role in weakening the Afghan bowling attack as one of his bouncers hit Rashid Khan on the head before shattering the stumps. Rashid looked unsettled immediately after the blow before it was revealed that he failed the concussion tests. Promptly he was rested for the rest of the match as Afghanistan didn’t want to take any chances with their star bowler. Sadly for Afghanistan, it wasn’t the last bit of disappointment that awaited them in Taunton.Also Read | Rashid Khan fails concussion test after blow to head in New Zealand gameAlso Read | Jason Roy intimidates opposition, says Eoin Morgan after Bangladesh winAlso See:last_img read more

‘What pre-season is all about’ – Lampard upbeat despite debut draw

first_imgFrank Lampard was not able to crown his debut on the Chelsea bench with a win – but he believes Wednesday’s rather underwhelming introduction will do his new charges a world of good. Chelsea were held 1-1 by League of Ireland side Bohemians in Dublin, just days after Lampard was officially unveiled as Maurizio Sarri’s successor. The Blues had taken the lead through Michy Batshuayi after just eight minutes.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare They failed to capitalise on that early advantage, however, and the Gypsies hit back through Eric Molloy to earn a draw from the friendly. While the result suggests the former Chelsea playing legend has some work to do in pre-season, Lampard preferred to look at the positives. “It was a good run-out, we had good support and thanks for people turning out. It was a tough first game for us as we have not been back for long,” he told reporters after the final whistle. “We’ve only been back just a few days so there had been some pressure on the lads and we have been working them very hard. I am pleased with the outcome.”Fitness was our issue but I wanted to stretch them a bit and put them under pressure.”This is what pre-season is all about and the quicker we get there, to the level we want, then the better. We wanted to win the game as you always do but it is not about that.Michy Batshuayi Chelsea 2019“It is about individuals getting fit and pushing themselves to the limit and I thought some of the performances – particularly from the younger lads – was really good.””I have been really happy. We have high standards and we have brought that in.

Premier Explores Energy Opportunities in New England OpEd

first_imgThis week, I addressed the U.S.- Canada Energy Trade and Technology Conference in Boston, a major event for industry and government leaders in North America. As the keynote speaker, I promoted the vast renewable energy opportunities available in our province, and outlined Nova Scotia’s aggressive targets as set out in the new Renewable Electricity Plan. I am proud of our goal to generate 25 per cent of the province’s electricity from renewable resources like wind, tidal and biomass by 2015, a goal that rises even higher, to 40 per cent by 2020. These targets are significantly higher than those set in most areas of the United States, are among the most aggressive in the world and are creating an historic shift to stable power costs for families and businesses in Nova Scotia. I also highlighted the work we are doing with our neighbours in Atlantic Canada to build a stronger and more integrated transmission system, and the benefits that might have for New England. Nova Scotia is poised to be a significant partner in the Lower Churchill hydro project, a project with the potential of a 180-kilometre sub-sea cable link between Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador. We also have plans to strengthen the transmission system between Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. New England is already connected to our offshore natural gas supply through the Maritimes and Northeast pipeline. Now we are investing in making our electricity connections just as seamless, allowing Nova Scotia to be an access point for energy imports and exports between New England and Atlantic Canada. That could mean transmitting hydro power from Lower Churchill to the United States, or selling renewable energy from our wind and tidal resources when we are generating more here than we need. By its nature, electricity has no borders. A strong transmission system is the backbone of an integrated electrical system. The more integrated an electricity system is, the more efficiently the system runs for everyone. That is the message I shared with our friends in New England. For Nova Scotians, regional collaboration on energy represents good jobs and economic growth, stabilized energy prices, and environmental leadership on a global scale, which is why it’s so important that government and business leaders maximize every opportunity to promote our province’s vast potential. It can only mean good things for everyone involved. -30-last_img read more

UN requests more than 4 billion in humanitarian aid for the rest

20 July 2011Relief agencies require another $4.3 billion to assist millions of needy people around the world during the second half of this year, the United Nations humanitarian chief said today, adding that donors have so far made available 45 per cent of the funds requested at the start of 2011. UN agencies and their partners had asked for $7.4 billion for humanitarian emergencies in 2011, but that figure has since risen to $7.9 billion as a result of increasing needs in some regions, including the Horn of Africa, where a severe drought has left 11.5 million people in need, Valerie Amos, Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, told reporters in Geneva.Some $3.6 billion of the requested amount has been received, Ms. Amos said after presenting a mid-year review of the status of humanitarian funding to UN Member States.“Our key concern is that there are persistent imbalances in funding among crises,” said Ms. Amos, who is also the UN Emergency Relief Coordinator. “The funding percentages of different appeals range from 29 per cent to 60 per cent.”The least-funded appeals are the regional appeal for West Africa and the funding requests for Zimbabwe, Djibouti and Niger.“We expect humanitarian needs in the second half of 2011 and in 2012 to continue, at least at current levels, as the effects of high commodity prices, adverse weather conditions, disasters and conflicts persist,” said Ms. Amos.“As I said to donors during our mid-year review launch, I hope that they will close the funding gaps. It will make a big difference to the millions of people we need to help,” she added.The launch of the mid-year review of the Consolidated Appeals Process (CAP) coincided with the classification of the drought emergency in southern Somalia as a famine in two regions.In response to a question, Ms. Amos said that child malnutrition levels in parts of southern Bakool and Lower Shabelle regions of Somalia had risen to 50 per cent, with mortality rates exceeding six deaths per 10,000 people a day.More than 100,000 malnourished children had been treated in 800 nutrition centres throughout Somalia between January and May 2011. A total of 554,000 children in southern Somalia are suffering from malnutrition, she added.Other drought-affected Horn of Africa countries that require humanitarian assistance are Djibouti, Ethiopia and Kenya. Newly-independent South Sudan, Yemen, Côte d’Ivoire and Libya, among others, will also require significant humanitarian interventions this year. read more

Womens soccer Ohio State wraps up spring season against Pitt on the

OSU sophomore forward Sammy Edwards (19) during a game against Minnesota on Sept. 17 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. OSU lost 2-1. Credit: Sam Harris / For The LanternAfter a cancellation against their rival Michigan Wolverines last weekend, the Ohio State women’s soccer team is looking to get back on their feet as they travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Panthers in the team’s final game of the 2017 spring season.With an intense few months of training and a number of exhibition games already under their belts, the Buckeyes are working to solidify the skills they have been building upon throughout this spring season, head coach Lori Walker said. However, there are a couple of lingering concerns that remain on both the offensive and defensive end of the ball.“We’ve got to have a little more presence from our mid-field as far as their ability to be dangerous in their shooting and looking at the goal more,” Walker said. “The biggest thing for us, though, is to really tidy up what’s happening in the back. We gave up way too many goals this past year, and if we can tighten that up, we’re certainly producing enough to win games.”The team has been struggling to fill certain roles that were left vacant at the conclusion of the 2016 season as their five graduating seniors departed, which has proven to be an especially difficult adjustment on the attacking end. Two of the five departing seniors, Lindsay Agnew and Nichelle Pierce, both now playing professionally, were the Buckeyes’ top goal scorers last season.With the absence of Agnew and Pierce up top, the transition has been tough for the group as they struggle to make it past the goalkeeper.“I feel like our biggest weakness is just putting the ball in the back of the net,” senior Sammy Edwards said. “We’ve been building so well and our defense has been strong, and then we get all the way up the field and we just can’t seem to finish and put the game away.”However, OSU may have more of an opportunity to enhance their attacks and find the back of the net this weekend, since Pitt has lost four graduating seniors as well, including their starting goalkeeper Taylor Francis, and defender Siobhan McDonough who contributed on the attack as well.The concern that remains is keeping a solid defensive line since Pitt will also have a number of dynamic attacking players. Panthers forwards Taylor Pryce and Ohio-native Sarah Krause could pose a threat to the Buckeyes’ defense who are going to need to tighten up, track and shut down these players, Walker said.Though the spring has brought along some challenges on both sides of the ball for the Buckeyes, they believe they have made improvements that will continue to benefit them as they prepare for the upcoming fall season, Edwards said.“I think we’re actually farther along in our process of where we want to be,” Edwards said, “and I think that’s going to be very beneficial as we go into the fall season because we have to train 13 new freshmen coming in, and if we’re all on the same page, it’ll be much easier to bring them into it.”The team is hoping for a smooth transition between the conclusion of the spring season and the beginning of summer training when the team, including the incoming freshman, arrive back on campus in June to take on summer school and work with the Buckeyes’ strength coach Tyler Carpenter before pre-season training officially begins.“They’ll get a little time off before preseason, and then we’ll hit the ground running on the first of August,” Walker said. The Buckeyes will wrap up the 2017 spring season Saturday at Pitt’s Ambrose Urbanic Field at 11:30 a.m. read more

Microsoft warns on universal Internet Explorer browser bug

first_imgBeing one of the most common web browsers in the world does mean problems will arise. However, the latest security bug that Microsoft has uncovered is not targeted at its latest browser, but in fact will affect all versions of Internet Explorer (IE). The security vulnerability is so severe that if exploited by a booby-trapped webpage the bug would allow attackers to take control of an unprotected computer.A temporary fix has already been published whilst Microsoft works on a permanent fix, and the company has said it had no evidence it was currently being used by hi-tech criminals. The bug seems to exploit the way IE manages a computer’s memory when processing CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) which as most tech heads will know is widely used within web pages to control the look and feel of a website.AdChoices广告In a statement Microsoft comments:We are investigating the bug and working on a permanent fix. In the meantime we recommend those concerned to use a protection system known as the Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit. Mind you, installing and applying the toolkit could require Windows XP users to update to the latest service pack, and even then some of the protection it provides for Windows 7 and Vista users will not be available.Read more at the BBClast_img read more

Eyman could face possible lifetime ban in state lawsuit

first_imgOLYMPIA — A Thurston County Superior Court judge has ruled that anti-tax initiative promoter Tim Eyman could potentially be punished with a lifetime ban on managing or directing the finances of a political committee.Judge James Dixon ruled Friday in connection with Attorney General Bob Ferguson’s long-running lawsuit against Eyman claiming that Eyman violated state campaign-finance laws and covertly used his initiative drives to enrich himself, the Seattle Times reported.Eyman had filed a motion to have the potential punishment thrown out, arguing that it would be an unconstitutional infringement on his First Amendment right to speech. He said the possibility of such a ban was having a chilling effect on his ability to fund ballot initiatives.“The courts have been very explicit, money is speech,” Eyman said, representing himself. Allowing him to participate in political action committees, but not in directing their finances, “is as absurd as the idea that he can be a truck driver as long as he can’t use a truck.”Eric Newman, chief litigation counsel for the attorney general’s antitrust division, argued that the potential punishment doesn’t infringe on Eyman’s speech.
