India vs New Zealand: We were not good enough with the bat, says Virat Kohli

first_imgVirat Kohli admitted that India “were not good enough” with the bat after the home team’s 40-run defeat against New Zealand in the second Twenty20 international at the Saurashtra Cricket Association stadium in Rajkot on Saturday. The victory helped the Black Caps level the three-match series 1-1.Batting first New Zealand rode on Colin Munro’s career-best 109 not out off only 58 balls to post a challenging 196/2. In reply, Indian innings never took off with both Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma falling in the second over, bowled by Trent Boult.Kohli and Shreyas Iyer fought back with a 54-run stand for the third wicket before Munro struck, dismissing Iyer for 23.FIFTY for King Kohli #INDvNZ BCCI (@BCCI) November 4, 2017Mahendra Singh Dhoni (49) struck three sixes but the mounting run rate prompted Kohli to try to accelerate and he perished in the process.Boult finished 4-34, while spinners Ish Sodhi and Mitchell Santner also bowled tidy overs picking a wicket each.”After 13-14 overs, it gripped a bit. But we have no excuses, we weren’t good enough with the bat. When you’re chasing 200, all the batsmen need to chip in, or one batsman has to score over a strike rate of 200. Tried to do my best. MS was very good at the end. But we were left with a very difficult task. It happens to a lot of batsmen, sometimes you are in good form, but you don’t get enough balls. We back our batsmen though. We back Hardik, and it’s just a little glitch,” Kohli said at the post match presentation ceremony.advertisementKohli credited New Zealand for the victory but praised India bowlers for not letting the visitors breach the 200-run mark.”I thought New Zealand were really good with the bat early on. We didn’t take our chances, yes, but at one stage they were looking to get 235-240 and credit to Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar to pull things back,” he said.The series decider will be played in Thiruvananthapuram on Tuesday.last_img read more

Strong March Cargo Volumes for GPA

first_imgzoom The Georgia Ports Authority achieved its highest month on record in March, moving 2.61 million tons of cargo – a 15.5 percent increase over the same month a year ago.The 349,682-ton increase was powered largely by double-digit container growth. The Port of Savannah’s Garden City Terminal moved 260,539 twenty-foot equivalent container units (TEUs) during the month, up by 28,000 TEUs or 12 percent. Cargo moved by rail accounted for 254,263 containers, or about 19.8 percent of total container volume.“A combination of new customers and retail outlets increasing inventory before the busy summer season factored into our success,” said Executive Director Curtis Foltz. “Meanwhile, at our dedicated auto port, we’re seeing an increase in volume as more carmakers choose the Port of Brunswick as their gateway to the Southeastern U.S.”A record number of roll-on/roll-off units – more than 64,000 cars, trucks and tractors – crossed GPA docks in March, a 21 percent improvement over year-ago figures.Strong March cargo volumes built on the previous eight months to deliver a 6.8 percent fiscal year to date increase in TEUs, for a total of 2.31 million. Ro/Ro traffic has seen even stronger growth for the fiscal year to date, reaching 503,091 units for a 7.4 percent (34,452-unit) improvement.The GPA closed the third quarter having moved a fiscal year to date total of 21.8 million tons of freight. An 8.4 percent increase compared to the same period last year added 1.7 million tons for the current total.“This outstanding and sustained level of growth is possible because Georgia’s deepwater ports offer faster and more economical connections to the population centers of the Southeast,” said GPA Board Chairman Robert Jepson. “Delivering better service helps the GPA to retain and win the new business that has such an important impact on the nation’s economy.” gaports, April 11, 2014last_img read more

Weeklong Vigil Honours Canadas Fallen Heros

first_imgAweek-long vigil to honour the 68,000 Canadian soldiers who died during the First World War will be held in Halifax’s Grand Parade from Tuesday, Nov. 4 to Nov. 11. Each day, beginning at sunset and ending at sunrise, the names of each of the soldiers who died will be projected on to the facade of St. Paul’s church. The Halifax vigil, one of a number to be held in Canada, along with one to be attended by Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip at Canada House, in London on Nov. 4, is intended to symbolically repatriate the bodies of those who, by law, had to be buried in Europe. Fredericton, Toronto, Regina, Edmonton and Ottawa will also hold vigils. The Halifax vigil is sponsored by Democracy 250, in conjunction with Canada’s National History Society and Veterans Affairs Canada. The Vigil 1914-1918 project is the brainchild of Canadian actor R.H. Thomson and lighting designer Martin Conboy. “This vigil is not only an act of remembrance, but also a calling into life again of each of the young men who lost their lives during the horrendous battles of 1914-1918,” said Mr. Conboy. These young men are arguably the ones who helped form Canada as an independent nation.” To maximize opportunities for Canadians to see the names of loved ones who died in battle, the Ottawa vigil, from the Canadian National War Memorial, will be broadcast in real-time on The website will also provide information on each of the other vigils and a search function to determine the specific time that a soldiers name will appear. Visitors to the site can also leave comments and personal reflections about their vigil experience, or post pictures from other vigil sites across the country. “This year marks the 250th anniversary of the birth of parliamentary democracy in Canada,” Democracy 250 co-chair Russell MacLellan said. “It is also the 90th anniversary of the end of the Great War. We cannot lose sight, and must never forget, that democracy exists today because there were brave, selfless soldiers who stood firm to defend the cause of freedom at home and abroad.last_img read more

Financial therapy what it is and who needs it

Money is about more than numbers: emotions are often at play too. Just as you can seek professional help for unhealthy issues in life, financial therapists can help you deal with problems related to money.WHAT IS IT?Financial therapy is the practice of helping people with how they think, feel and behave with money to improve their well-being, according to the Financial Therapy Association.It’s a relatively new niche. The FTA — a professional organization created to set standards for the industry — was established in 2010 and began to offer certifications this year, FTA president Meghaan Lurtz said.The service is generally provided by a financial or mental health professional. The FTA offers varying degrees of certification, which leads to differing degrees of assistance, based on the provider’s level of education and training.Financial therapy could be assistance for people who can’t keep tabs on their cash, or help for couples who regularly fight about money. But it can also include more serious matters like gambling addiction.“We all have stuff that is good and that is bad about our relationship with money,” Lurtz said. “It’s really hard to change a belief or habit if you don’t even know where or why you are doing it.”WHAT DO THEY DO?It depends on who you see and what you are seeing them for.If you are seeing a family and marriage therapist about issues in your relationship and money is a major sticking point, someone with a specialty in financial therapy may be able to better sort through those. If you go to see a financial adviser and they work in the financial therapy space, they may be able to elicit better answers from you on how you feel about retirement or how market volatility makes you feel, and what that means for your financial planning.However, a financial adviser should not be helping you with mental health issues like depression. Part of the training is recognizing when to refer a client to get the help they need. Similarly, a therapist should not be providing financial advice, such as what stock to buy.It is not regulated but people who receive the certification are held to their own licensure and industry standards.People who receive the first level of FTA certification, such as a fee-only certified financial planner, aren’t providing therapy in a traditional sense but do have a more informed position on emotional aspects of money. Only those with some mental health training or who are actively licensed mental health professionals, such as a social worker, psychologist or family and marriage therapist, can receive the higher-tier certification.“My ears are more highly attuned to money issues and I can go into more detail about money,” said Ed Coambs, a certified financial planner and licensed family and marriage therapist who specializes in financial therapy.Coambs recently had a client who is going through a separation, and the ex-husband wasn’t making agreed upon support payments. So while helping the patient deal with grief over the separation itself, Coambs could also recognize and help address some repeat trauma about money from the patient’s childhood.WHO NEEDS ONE?According to financial therapists, everyone could stand to benefit. But in reality, those whose issues with money are interfering with their life or relationships are likely the best candidates.People who are in financial distress — such as hiding purchases, spending compulsively or avoiding their financial statements — definitely should seek help, according to Coambs. But people who have a childhood with a lot of conflict about money or have disorders such as obsessive compulsive disorder or post-traumatic stress disorder may also want to consider if that is impacting their financial wellbeing as well.A therapist or other mental health professional will be able to tie their understanding of the human psyche to the relationship with money, he said. Whereas a financial planner might be using some therapeutic skill in their planning.Sarah Swantner said that in her work as a financial planner, she has often found couples who cannot agree or people who say they want to make changes but cannot. Her firm, Kahler Financial Group, puts an emphasis on understanding and working with the emotional side of money. Ultimately, she went back to school to get a master’s degree in mental health counselling to enhance her work.“If you have a relationship with a client long enough there may be some issues either about anxiety about investing or a life change — like inheritance or divorce,” Swantner said. “We want all our planners to have some listening and solving skills.”It’s not just for those with money problems either. Sometimes people with wealth struggle with how to manage it or have guilt about it. Swantner’s firm offers hourly financial coaching and therapy for non-financial planning clients as well.“Even if we are great with money, we all have feelings that are causing angst somewhere,” she said. “It helps to stop and think about why. How would my life be different if I didn’t believe this – it’s not just for people with ‘problems.’”HOW DO I FIND ONE?The FTA has a searchable database for financial therapists near you.In some cases, you may be better off with another kind of a professional. A licensed therapist or psychologist can help with many emotional and mental health issues. A financial planner (look for a fee-only one) can help you develop a strategy for your finances now and in the future. But non-profit credit counselling services also can provide some money coaching help, which may be a best first step if you are dealing with an overwhelming amount of debt.Sarah Skidmore Sell, The Associated Press read more

Honest Tea Trump quote was already being phased out from bottle caps

NEW YORK, N.Y. – Organic beverage maker Honest Tea says a Donald Trump quote is being removed from its bottle caps, but not because it has any problems with the leading Republican presidential candidate.For years, the company has put quotes on the bottom of its bottle caps that it says are meant to be inspirational and thought-provoking. On Sunday, an Honest Tea customer tweeted an image of a cap that referenced the Republican presidential candidate: “If you’re going to think anyway, you might as well think big. Donald Trump.”Paul Shapiro, who tweeted the image, said the quote jumped out at him.“I usually don’t think of organic green tea consumers as target demographic for Donald Trump,” said Shapiro, who works for The Humane Society of the U.S.Later, Honest Tea’s Twitter account responded to Shapiro, “We’re in the process of having his quotes removed from our caps,” with a smiley face at the end.Seth Goldman, co-founder of Honest Tea, said the company had already been in the process of phasing out the Trump quote. When Honest Tea was acquired by Coca-Cola in 2011, Goldman said the world’s biggest beverage maker advised Honest Tea that there was less risk of offending people with quotes from people who have been dead for a while.He said the company updates its rotation of quotes about every 18 months, and that the Trump quote was already slated for removal.“There’s nothing objectionable to the thought,” Goldman said of the Trump quote.

Drunk driver banned after getting his Mercedes stuck on tram tracks

first_imgMaurice Cooney References from clients of Cooney were passed to magistrates, including one from a police firearms officer and another from an NHS worker.Cooney – who has no previous convictions – accepted the offer of a drink-driving rehabilitation course which will reduce his ban by 17 weeks. He was fined £246 and ordered to pay prosecution costs of £135 and a £30 victim surcharge. A Mercedes driver who was over double the drink-drive limit caused hours of disruption after blundering onto a tram track in an error his lawyer admitted will “hit him in the pocket”.Maurice Cooney was forced to raise the alarm at an office building after getting stranded on a tram-only section of the Midland Metro, causing five hours of disruption to services and  £6,000 of damage to his week-old Mercedes.Birmingham Magistrates’ Court heard that Cooney failed a breath test – which showed a reading of 86mcg, more than double the legal limit of 35mcg – after driving for 100 metres along the tracks at about 7am on Sunday November 6. The car caused disruption to servicesCredit:PA  Ms Rashoda told the court: “This is a gentleman entitled to full credit for his guilty pleas.”He went to a nearby building and located a porter and alerted them to the fact that the vehicle was stuck on the tramlines. He told them to call the police.”Before the offence, the court heard, Cooney, who runs a personal training business, had travelled from Shropshire to Birmingham after being invited on a night out with friends.

His lawyer told magistrates: “He felt okay and foolishly made the decision to get up and drive his vehicle home.”Once you are following the Metro line at the back of Snow Hill there is no way of turning back and he had to carry on. The line then rises and that’s where he became stuck. He tried to turn left and right and couldn’t move the vehicle either way.”The vehicle is currently in the garage and it’s going to cost £6,000 to repair. That’s going to hit him in the pocket.” The 33-year-old, of Station Road, Donnington, Telford, Shropshire, admitted drink-driving, having no insurance, and causing a danger or inconvenience by obstructing the tracks near Birmingham’s Snow Hill tram stop. His solicitor Harjit Rashoda told magistrates the no insurance offence was an “oversight” linked to the acquisition of the 66-plate Mercedes.

The study was presented at the 2011 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS).For many years now, some physicians have ordered specific diagnostic procedures that are of little or no benefit to a patient, largely to protect themselves from a lawsuit. Until now, however, efforts to actually measure defensive medicine practices have been limited primarily to surveys sent to physicians. Such surveys would simply ask whether or not that individual actually practiced defensive medicine.”This is the first study we know of that looked at the actual practice decisions of physicians regarding defensive imaging in real time — prospectively done,” says John Flynn, M.D.Flynn, who is associate chief of orthopedic surgery at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, said that many lawsuits hinge on the plaintiff’s lawyer’s claim that the doctor should have ordered extra diagnostic testing. “And such a claim may be the driving force of so much of the defensive test ordering.”According to Flynn, 72 orthopedic surgeons, who are members of the Pennsylvania Orthopaedic Society, voluntarily participated in this study, which included some 2,068 patient encounters throughout the state of Pennsylvania. Most patients in this study were adults. The study found that 19 percent of the imaging tests ordered were for defensive purposes. Defensive imaging was responsible for $113,369 of $325,309 (34.8 percent) of total imaging charges for this patient cohort, based on Medicare dollars. The overall cost of these tests was 35 percent of all imaging ordered because the most common test was an MRI, an imaging test which costs more than a regular X-ray.One piece of this problem to remember, Flynn said, is that the legal environment that drives physicians to order additional tests has an effect on patients too, in a way that involves more than costs. “Patients are sometimes put through tests that maybe otherwise would not be ordered.”The finding from this research that surprised Flynn the most was that surgeons were more likely to practice defensively if they had been in practice for more than 15 years.”This was counterintuitive,” he said. “I thought that young doctors would come out of medical school immediately after training, be less confident because they weren’t experienced, and order more defensive tests. Then, as they become more comfortable and confident after 10 or 20 years in practice, they would order many fewer tests.””In fact, the opposite was true. We found that — in Pennsylvania at least — a surgeon’s defensive nature gets worse over time. In this legal environment, orthopedic surgeons order more imaging tests of a defensive nature, because over time they become more concerned that someone is going to second guess or sue them.”Flynn says that medical liability awards typically are given because of the severity of a bad outcome, and not necessarily because of negligence. In fact, a May 2006 study published in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that 37 percent of claims did not involve medical errors, and in 3 percent of claims, no injury occurred at all.Flynn pointed to various studies that show that defensive medicine, in general, is quite prevalent. One such study in the June 2005 Journal of the American Medical Association reported that almost 93 percent of 824 physicians in Pennsylvania responding to a survey practiced defensive medicine.”Ideally, as a next step, we would hope to try to get a broader national picture using this prospective practice audit methodology, so we could get a better sense of the true costs of defensive imaging in orthopedics,” Flynn said.”Ultimately, if you had doctors from multiple specialties — from OB/Gyn to Neurosurgery to Emergency Medicine — do this type of practice audit, you could accurately quantify how much of our nation’s healthcare resources are wasted on defensive medicine.”For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | February 18, 2011 Study Shows High Imaging Costs to Defend Against Litigation News | Radiation Therapy | August 15, 2019 First Patient Enrolled in World’s Largest Brain Cancer Clinical Trial Henry Ford Cancer Institute is first-in-the-world to enroll a glioblastoma patient in the GBM AGILE Trial (Adaptive… read more News | Artificial Intelligence | August 13, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Could Yield More Accurate Breast Cancer Diagnoses University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) researchers have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that… read more Related Contentlast_img read more
