  • Backing players has worked for us Ricky Ponting

    first_imgNew Delhi: With his team placed comfortably at the second spot in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), Delhi Capitals head coach Ricky Ponting believes that keeping the faith in his players has helped the team in finding the form at this crucial juncture of the competition. The 44-year-old Australian said: “There have been questions asked about where we should have dropped certain players in some matches, but I believe that when you have talented players in your squad, you just keep backing them. You know that we have players who can turn it around quite quickly as it takes just one innings or match to get going in a tournament like this.” Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over Chandigarh He added: “In the first phase of the tournament, players like Rishabh (Pant) might have had certain thoughts around his mind about the World Cup selection, but to be honest, that 78* in the first match against Mumbai was what got us the win. “I’m glad he found the form again against RR, and what you want from players like him in such a tournament is that they win you three or four matches each throughout the season, and he has certainly won two games for us so far, and if he remains in form, he can get a couple of more wins.” Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced later Delhi Capitals sit second on the points table with a tally of 14 points from their 11 matches, which include seven wins and four losses. But Ponting believes that his team is in good form and is peaking at the right time. He said: “We have won the last four out of our five matches, and with three more matches to go, I feel we are going in the right direction. I am happy that the team is peaking at the right time, with better communication amongst the group.” Asked which victory he enjoyed the most, Ponting said that the away win against Hyderabad by 39 runs was the sweetest in terms of turning it around from a losing situation. “I really liked the Hyderabad win because we didn’t do much right in that match but still found a way to win. It was more the way we fought back, probably after their batting powerplay, they batted second and they were 60-0, and the game was starting to slip away but there were some really good signs in that game from our side. “The moments when we have been under pressure the most, that is when we have started to fight, and fight under pressure, and one thing that I’ve tried to say to the boys is that we do not lose the match until the last ball is bowled. “We saw that in our last match against Rajasthan as well. We fought our way back into the match and then registered the win. But out of the seven matches that we have won, I think the Hyderabad win has been the most satisfying,” he added. After the conclusion of a couple of days’ rest, the Delhi Capitals’ squad will re-group on Friday at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium to prepare for their upcoming match against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Sunday.last_img read more

  • India Morocco Need to Join Forces to Fight Terror Indian Official

    New Delhi – Morocco and India need to work together to fight terrorism and promote their economic relations, Secretary (East) in the Indian Ministry of External Affairs, Anil Wadhwa, said.“It is important for India and Morocco to work together to evolve stronger cooperation in the field of counter terrorism and intelligence in order to develop an efficient mechanism in real time exchange of information and also to staunch the flow of terror finance,” Wadhwa said at a roundtable on ‘India and Morocco: Imperatives of Cooperation’, organized Saturday by the Society for Policy Studies in collaboration with Morocco’s embassy in New Delhi.Underlining that “Morocco and India need to fight terror through not just bilateral but also regional and international cooperation,” he called for the establishment of a multidimensional partnership between Morocco and India to contribute to strengthening security and stability in the Maghreb region and Sahel, and through “emphasizing the values of plurality, diversity, religious tolerance and moderation – values both India and Morocco subscribe to.” The Indian official, who visited the Kingdom last December, hailed, in this regard, Morocco’s efforts in the promotion of tolerance and moderation values, as well as its strong commitment to the training of imams from different countries of the region.Mr. Wadhwa also said Morocco and India can move forward to take advantage of the potential of cooperation between the two friendly countries, recalling in this respect that the volume of trade increased from 361 million dollars in 2000 to over 2 billion dollars in 2011 before declining to 1.4 billion in 2013, due to the impact of the global economic crisis.He also called upon Moroccan businessmen to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the rapid economic growth in India, a country open to foreign investment. read more

  • Deputy SecretaryGeneral hails new tool to promote peacebuilding in Burundi

    Addressing a meeting of the UN Peacebuilding Commission, Ms. Migiro called the Monitoring and Tracking Mechanism for the Strategic Framework for Peacebuilding in Burundi “a practical and powerful tool to ensure dialogue and enhanced coordination between key stakeholders.“And it will help to ensure accountability of the actors engaged in supporting Burundi in its efforts to stay on the path to secure peace and sustainable development,” she told the gathering at UN Headquarters in New York. Burundi is one of two countries – along with Sierra Leone – on the agenda of the Commission, set up a year ago to help countries emerging from conflict avoid the slide back into war. The Mechanism, the first of its kind, paves the way for a “principled and active partnership” between countries under consideration by the Commission, the entire UN system and the larger international community, she said. Noting that Burundi still faces a number of challenges in its efforts to consolidate peace, including good governance, security sector reform and socio-economic recovery, Ms. Migiro said the adoption of the Mechanism is a critical step for the country and its people, as well as for the work of the Commission.“I believe that the framework and monitoring mechanism you have jointly agreed with the Government and other stakeholders in Burundi will strengthen the long-term international support and engagement Burundi needs.” 5 December 2007Applauding Burundi on its commitment to peace after more than a decade of armed conflict, Deputy Secretary-General Asha-Rose Migiro today welcomed the adoption of a new tool that will strengthen the partnership between the United Nations, the West African country and its international partners. read more

  • Growing number of Ontario municipalities oppose sale of Hydro One

    Growing number of Ontario municipalities oppose sale of Hydro One by Keith Leslie, The Canadian Press Posted Sep 28, 2015 9:37 am MDT Last Updated Sep 28, 2015 at 12:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – Municipal politicians opposed to the Ontario government’s plans to sell Hydro One said Monday that the issue is hurting federal Liberals on the campaign trail, and will come back to haunt the provincial party as well.More than one third of Ontario’s municipalities, 165 so far, have passed resolutions opposing the Liberal’s plans to sell the giant electricity transmission utility, with many complaining they were not consulted.“This is a government that loves to consult, and I think that’s been one of the biggest criticisms over the years, of consulting municipalities to death,” said Sarnia Mayor Mike Bradley.“They engage us in consultation on speed limits, clothes lines, on pit bulls, but on the big issue that impacts on our communities economically — and I would make the case eventually socially — they failed to let us have our voice.”Federal Liberal candidates knocking on doors for the Oct. 19 election are hearing about the planned sale, “and not in a good way,” added Bradley.“It is a handicap for the Liberal candidates,” he said. “Northern Ontario has made it very clear they don’t support this, and southwestern Ontario doesn’t support this, but we’re not being listened to.”Voters wonder if Wynne is prepared to act in a unilateral way, would Justin Trudeau act in a similar manner, said Katrina Miller of the Keep Hydro Public coalition.“She’s moving forward on an ill-fated, precedent-setting, sell-off that seems to be a fire sale, with no desire to listen to what anyone else is saying,” said Miller. “If she’s willing to do that, they question whether or not Justin Trudeau may be headed in the same direction.”Whitby Councillor Chris Leahey said federal and provincial Liberals will “absolutely” pay a price at the polls for Wynne’s decision to plow ahead with the sale despite surveys showing over 80 per cent of Ontarians oppose the privatization.The Liberals didn’t tell voters in the 2014 Ontario election that their plans for asset sales meant privatizing Hydro One, despite Wynne’s claim that she has a mandate to sell the utility, added Leahey.“Selling Hydro One was not part of their election plan, so where is the consultation,” he asked. “People are worried their hydro rates will go up.”Bradley said voters would have “to be Sherlock Holmes” to have figured out the Liberals were talking about selling Hydro One when their 2014 campaign platform spoke about “optimizing the value of provincial assets.”Energy Minister Bob Chiarelli insisted the Liberals did campaign on the sale of Hydro One and said details were in last year’s budget, but it was introduced more than a month after the June 2014 election.“We talked about repurposing our assets without being specific,” admitted Chiarelli. “The budget was very specific.”The Liberals hope to raise $9 billion from selling 60 per cent of Hydro One, and promise to use $5 billion to pay down hydro debt and the remaining $4 million to help fund public transit and infrastructure projects across the province.“This is a bad idea and everyone knows it, it seems, except for them,” said Miller.Follow @CPnewsboy on Twitter read more

  • IMPACT warns Bord na Mona merger would give Coillte a weak voice

    first_imgCONCERNS OVER A planned merger of Coillte and Bord na Mona have been raised by IMPACT.The trade union said today that the merger “would leave the state forestry company as a small and relatively weak voice within a much larger company focused heavily on energy production”.It was announced in June of this year that a planned sale of Coillte’s harvesting rights had been called off by the government.The sale had been proposed in a 2011 review of the sale of State assets. According to the report, Coillte had net assets worth €1.2 billion, but the report has since been criticised.In June, Agriculture Minister Simon Coveney said that the government would instead consider a potential merger of Coillte and Bord na Móna, in order to create a single State body.Although in June IMPACT welcomed the above news, saying that the decision to retain harvesting rights was a “sensible response to the evidence that a sale would actually cost taxpayers’ money”, their stance has changed somewhat.Company prioritiesIn contrast to their statement during the summer, today IMPACT said that it fears that there could be a “rebalancing of company priorities” following a merger.It warned that this “would likely divert wood to energy usage rather than maintaining its most economically-advantageous use”.It continued:This would seriously weaken Coillte’s economic base with consequences for its ability to sustain its social and environmental functions, including access to state forests for recreation and tourism.IMPACT published a paper called Coillte: The way forward, today, in which IMPACT’s Coillte Branch says that, following a merger, “pressure will immediately fall on Coillte to provide wood biomass for Bord na Mona’s electricity generation operation”.Bord na Mona is required by regulation to guarantee that biomass products make up 30 per cent or 300,000 tonnes of its fuel by 2015.But IMPACT said it would be “impossible to meet [this] demand for biomass” without compromising over 100 jobs in two Coillte panel board processing plants in Clonmel and Waterford.It also pointed out that thinnings from Coillte forests support many jobs in the private wood products sector and fulfil an increasing demand for firewood.The union therefore fears that a merged company “would divert substantial amounts of higher-grade timber to energy generation, with significant adverse effects on Coillte’s forestry, environmental and social operations”.IMPACT national secretary Matt Staunton said: “If Coillte activity is rebalanced in this way, the economic return from the public forest will be weakened.”Last year Coillte made an operating profit of €35 million and returned a €2 million dividend to the state.The Coillte annual report for 2012 will be discussed by the Oireachtas Agriculture Committee today.Read: Cabinet abandons plan to sell off felling rights for public forests>last_img read more

  • Dario Benedetto relieved to score again after long injury layoff

    first_imgBoca Juniors striker Dario Benedetto admitted his relief after scoring his first goal since November 2017 following a long spell on the sidelines with a knee injuryThe Argentina international struck twice in the final 10 minutes to hand Boca a 2-0 win over Brazilian side Palmeiras in the Copa Libertadores semi-final first leg.After rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee before suffering further problems with his Achilles tendinitis and hamstring, Benedetto was naturally thrilled afterwards.“It was hard for me to score again. It wasn’t going right for me. I am happy to return in a moment as important as a semi-final,” said Benedetto on Fox Sports.“I’ve been working after many setbacks – I still have tendinitis, the strain. Those blows can crush you, but then this can also happen.“I liked the second goal a lot because of the touch, but I prefer the first. It was a relief for me to score again after so long, more so in a semi-final.”Boca coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto, who brought Benedetto on the 77th minute for Ramon Abila from the bench, praised the 28-year-old’s efforts.River Plate v Boca Juniors - Copa CONMEBOL Libertadores 2018Match Preview: River Plate vs Boca Juniors Boro Tanchev – September 1, 2019 It is time for one of the most intense derby games in the world, as River Plate and Boca Juniors go head-to-head tonight at 22:00 (CET).“He’s back from injury.

  • What You Need To Know About The Oklahoma Teacher Walkout

It’s the first time the state’s teachers have walked out of school in nearly 30 years. By midday Monday, Oklahoma City and Tulsa public schools indicated they would also close facilities on Tuesday, signaling a second day of protests ahead.More and more teachers continue to arrive at the capitol for what promises to be a historic event. #oklaedwalkout #oklahomateacherwalkout #oklahomateachers #okled #OKwalk4kids pic.twitter.com/woUGmH7nDn— LeftVoice (@left_voice) April 2, 2018Here’s what we know:How we got here:The Oklahoma Legislature passed a bill last week that included an average pay raise of $6,000 for educators and $50 million dollars more in education funding. A $1,250 increase for support staff and a raise for state employees was also a part of the bill.The measure was a “good first step,” Alicia Priest, president of the Oklahoma Education Association (OEA) told the PBS NewsHour. But it didn’t go far enough, she said. As teachers walked out on Monday, the union demanded a $10,000 pay increase over three years for every teacher, a $5,000 increase for support staff and a pay raise for state employees, as well as $200 million dollars in additional funding for schools. The bill that passed last week only partially met the teachers’ demands.On Monday, teachers descended on the state Capitol building in an attempt to meet with their legislators. The walkout is the first time many of Oklahoma’s educators are on the front lines fighting for pay raises and money for their schools. The last walkout was in 1990, before one of the key non-union organizers, Alberto Morejon was born.“Today is Day 1 of however long it will take to solve the long-term funding crisis in Oklahoma, so our kids can have a bright future,” said 24-year old teacher Morejon, who started a Facebook group “Oklahoma Teacher Walkout – The Time Is Now!” in early March.A history of low pay:Photo courtesy of Melissa WoodsOklahoma teachers headed to the capital of Oklahoma City on Monday to protest low salaries and a lack of funding for schools.Until Republican Gov. Mary Fallin signed the bill into law Thursday, teachers in Oklahoma were the lowest paid in the U.S. and hadn’t seen a raise in a decade. In 2016, the median household income in the state of Oklahoma was $48,038, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. According to minimum state salary requirements in Oklahoma, a teacher with a doctorate degree and 25 years of experience could earn a salary of $46,000 for the 2017-2018 school year.In a Facebook video on Sunday, Priest discussed teachers who go to food pantries to feed their families and donate plasma to make ends meet and whose students use outdated textbooks that are duct taped together.How is the state responding?Last Thursday, Fallin tweeted that she was “pleased to sign three bills today that are part of an historic revenue package to fund the largest teacher pay raise in state history,” adding that the state “will move to second-highest in the region, up from the lowest, in average teacher pay.” She has not yet publicly commented on this week’s walkout.State Sen. Joseph Silk wrote on Facebook last week that while he supported teachers and public education, he voted against the bill, because it did not include “any type of long term reforms to our States’ skewed tax structure, out of control spending problems, or structural budget issues.”He added that he was “exceptionally frustrated with many of our public educators, who radically and vocally turned against all common sense, principled measures, measures which could have increased funding to their industry and instead threw all their support behind a huge money grab tax increase on the backs of hard working Oklahomans.”“I really wish that the Oklahoma Education Association [and other teachers] … would have gotten behind some more common sense fiscally responsible measures instead of just saying, hey, raise taxes on everybody so we can have basically a higher paycheck,” he told NPR.Joy Hofmeister, the state’s superintendent of public instruction, tweeted that she was joining teachers at the state Capitol on Monday.“I am here to listen. This cannot be a standoff where Oklahomans become divided. There are champions for kids in schools and at the Capitol. With few exceptions, we all want more for our kids. We all want more for our state,” she wrote in a Facebook post.What other sources of revenue could help school funding?Photo courtesy of Alberto MorejonHistory teacher Alberto Morejon protesting for a raise in Stillwater, Oklahoma, ahead of Monday’s walkout.Days after the bill was voted on, state House lawmakers appealed to remove a $5 hotel tax that could have garnered as much as $50 million dollars, citing concerns over a negative impact on tourism in the state, local station KFOR-TV reported.“It’s these kinds of political stunts and years of irresponsible budgeting that got us in this mess to begin with,” Priest said.In addition to reinstating the hotel tax, Priest said, two other revenue streams could be achieved by instituting a “ball and dice” tax on gambling and passing the capital gains tax break. Proposals for each of these revenue sources have yet to pass through both chambers of the Oklahoma legislature.After the bill’s passage last week, Republican Rep. Pat Ownbey suggested to the NewsHour that it would be tough to pass the bill again if the Senate sent it back to the House.“It’s such a delicate thing to get Republicans and Democrats to agree,” Ownbey said. “We haven’t seen this in 30 years. I’m not sure we can get it back again.”What’s next?Several school districts around the state cancelled classes indefinitely beginning on Monday, while others closed school at least through Tuesday as the walkout continues. Some districts had announced additional closures, but reversed their decision when the legislature passed the salary increase last week.Teachers in several states across the country, inspired by a successful strike in February in West Virginia, are also protesting for better salaries and funding for their schools. Kentucky teachers called in sick on Friday after lawmakers made last minute changes to their pensions and Arizona teachers say they will also strike if they do not receive a pay raise.Silk told NPR he did not envision the legislature gathering to address the issue again.“Just from my perspective, you know, we just passed a $447 million tax increase, so that’s a substantial amount of revenue for one year. So I don’t see the lawmakers doing anything anything else this year regarding education funding,” he said.PBS NewsHour will update this story as it develops.This article originally appeared in PBS NewsHour. Union leaders with @okcAFT have indicated that our teachers plan to continue the walkout tomorrow. Therefore, district leaders have decided to cancel classes for OKCPS again tomorrow, Tuesday, April 3, 2018.— OKC Public Schools (@OKCPS) April 2, 2018last_img read more

  • Dragon Quest X will also be released for the NES

    first_imgYesterday, Square Enix announced the next entry in the Dragon Quest series of games. It is called Dragon Quest X Mezameshi Itsutsu no Shuzoku and surprised everyone by being a game that requires an online connection to play.Although not an MMO, DQIX is a game that encourages you to go online, form groups, and explore the world together. It also looks as though that online exploration will come with a monthly charge.Now there’s another surprise we are finding a little hard to believe. Square Enix isn’t just developing this game for the Wii and Wii U as stated yesterday. Another version is also in the works for the Famicom, otherwise known as the NES in the West.This long dead 8-bit platform is sure to have a few followers still, but nowhere near enough to warrant a new release. So what’s the deal here? Is this a joke or is Square Enix seriously considering the NES as a worthy platform for a new game in 2012, some 29 years after its original hardware launch?If this is true, and that has yet to be confirmed officially by Square Enix, it could be a very clever marketing move and additional revenue stream. DQX will have some features that work on the 3DS, but not a full working game. At the same time Nintendo has started releasing NES games through the eShop. Could it be Square Enix plans to release a NES version of DQX in the 3DS eShop?Fans of the series would certainly jump at the chance to play a Dragon Quest title with 8-bit graphics. You can sign me up right now. If it was priced correctly then there’s potential for it to generate some serious revenue.The one question that remains is whether Nintendo would allow such a release. The company is emulating and re-releasing old NES games on the 3DS, but would it allow the emulation of a new one?Read more at Andriasanglast_img read more
