IPL 2019: Rishabh Pant, Prithvi Shaw knock SRH out, Delhi Capitals on course for maiden final

first_imgPrithvi Shaw’s stylish half-century and an innings of brute force from Rishabh Pant helped Delhi Capitals beat Sunrisers Hyderabad by 2 wickets in the Eliminator in Vizag on Tuesday. SRH were knocked out while DC kept alive their dreams of a maiden IPL final.On Friday, Delhi Capitals will take on defending champions Chennai Super Kings in Qualifier 2 in Vizag for a berth in the title clash against Mumbai Indians. DC have made it to the playoffs for the first time since 2012 and would be eager to make the most of this opportunity.Prithvi Shaw led the charge for Delhi Capitals in their chase of 163. He has been out of sorts since that 99 against Kolkata Knight Riders but on Wednesday, Shaw came out all guns blazing and became only the 2nd teenager to hit 4 fifties after Shubman Gill in the Indian Premier League.Shikhar Dhawan, Delhi’s most successful batsman in the 2019 IPL. fell to Deepak Hooda and was smartly stumped by Wriddhiman Saha but DC were on course thanks to Shaw’s early aggression.Prithvi Shaw was brutal against Bhuvneshwar Kumar and was not scared to play his shots against any of SRH’s star bowlers. But he played one shot too many against Khaleel Ahmed who had just dismissed Shreyas Iyer in his 2nd over. In a space of 4 balls, Delhi had lost Iyer and Shaw and Hyderabad were suddenly in the game.Keemo Paul ends the tension!@DelhiCapitals win the #Eliminator by 2 wickets and move on to Qualifier 2 #DCvSRH pic.twitter.com/WzpjUeg5pCadvertisementIndianPremierLeague (@IPL) May 8, 2019Rishabh Pant and Colin Munro make for a dangerous pair in T20 cricket. The asking rate was beginning to climb but Pant was not going to let it get away from him and Delhi Capitals.Delhi Capitals took little risk against Rashid Khan who went wicketless in his first 3 overs. But his last over threatened to change the dynamics of the game. He snared Colin Munro and Axar Patel to rock the Capitals who were looking to stay on course for their first ever IPL final.But Rishabh Pant played a few mind-numbing shots to knock Sunrisers Hyderabad out of the 2019 IPL as Delhi Capitals stayed alive to face defending champions Chennai Super Kings in Qualifier 2 in Vizag on Friday.Sunrisers Hyderabad lost Wriddhiman Saha to Ishant Sharma early after Delhi Capitals skipper Shreyas Iyer won the toss and decided to bowl in Vizag. But Martin Guptill hit 4 sixes to help SRH to a rapid start despite the early setback.On a slow pitch, Martin Guptill set the tone for SRH with 4 sixes but just when it looked like he was settling down for a big knock, Amit Mishra dismissed him for a 19-ball 36. Manish Pandey, who hit top form as a No.3 for Hyderabad, scraped around for a slow 30 before his stay was ended by Keemo Paul.Kane Williamson, the Orange Cap winner in 2018, hit a stylish 70 not out against Royal Challengers Bangalore but has done precious little this season. It was the perfect opportunity for him to have a say in the Eliminator but Ishant Sharma returned to the attack to see Williamson off for a 27-ball 28.Sunrisers Hyderabad were in serious trouble at 111 for 5 off 15.5 overs but Vijay Shankar (25 off 11) and Mohammad Nabi (20 off 13) lifted the team to a strong total.Amit Mishra was the most economical bowler for Delhi Capitals with a spell of 4-0-16-1 while Keemo Paul (3/32) and Ishant Sharma (2/34) did the most damage with 5 wickets between them.Sunrisers Hyderabad looked a different batting unit when David Warner and Jonny Bairstow were going great guns throughout the league stages. Warner, in fact, is still the leading run-scorer this season with 692 runs but both men had to leave as Australia and England began their World Cup preparations. In their absence, it was important for Guptill, Williamson and Pandey to stand up but they could not really do that.Also Read | Rishabh Pant objects after Shreyas Iyer decides to withdraw run-out appealAlso Read | Shreyas Iyer in a hurry at toss, Sanjay Manjrekar stops himAlso Read | Prithvi Shaw equals Shubman Gill’s record with quickfire fifty in Eliminatorlast_img read more



DMA to Abolish Special Shipping Requirements in Denmark

first_imgzoom Out of the 33 special requirements that Denmark has for ships flying the Danish flag, four have been abolished and the remaining requirements will be revised or abolished, according to the Danish Maritime Authority (DMA).A benchmark analysis, carried out by financial advisory firm Deloitte on the basis of a decision by the Danish Government’s Implementation Committee, examined to what extent Denmark gold-plates five international conventions or has other additional special requirements compared to Germany, Malta, Norway, Singapore and the United Kingdom.The analysis has identified 33 special requirements, which include, inter alia, requirements related to the construction of ships, inspections, certification and reporting obligations.The Implementation Committee has asked the Danish Maritime Authority to align the requirements with those of the neighbouring countries.“We have been alleviating burdens for a long time and we have already abolished four of the 33 special requirements identified in the analysis. Now, with this analysis in hand, we will take initiatives to make it even more attractive to fly the Danish flag,” Andreas Nordseth, Director General from the Danish Maritime Authority, said.As of 1 January 2017, four of the 33 special requirements have been abolished, including a requirement to report information on the signing on and signing off. In the coming months, additional revisions of requirements will be initiated in order to further alleviate the burdens imposed on the maritime industry.last_img read more

Healthcare sector lifts Toronto stock index to another record high loonie down

first_imgTORONTO – A surging health-care sector helped Toronto’s main stock index move higher into record territory Tuesday, despite a broad-based decline that included energy and mining stocks.The commodity-heavy S&P/TSX composite index advanced 39.59 points to 16,131.79, with shares of Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc. (TSX:VRX) up more than 17 per cent on the day.The embattled Quebec drugmaker’s stock closed at $18.09 on Tuesday after it reported a profit of $1.3 billion in its latest quarter and total debt reduction of $6 billion since the end of the first quarter of 2016. The financial results came out a day after Valeant announced a deal to sell its female sexual dysfunction drug back to the company’s former owners in exchange for a royalty on sales.“Valeant is a name that has gained some footing recently but obviously nowhere near where it once was trading quite a while ago,” said Allan Small, a senior investment adviser at Holliswealth. “They are basically selling off assets to pay down debt and get their turnaround story and their company back on track.”Valeant still faces a string of lawsuits, including one from its former CEO and U.S. investigations over its drug pricing practices after questions about the company’s business model first emerged two years ago. The scrutiny caused its stock to plunge from more than $300 per share.Several Canadian marijuana companies also propelled health care higher, with shares of Aurora Cannabis Inc. (TSX:ACB), Canopy Growth Corp. (TSX:WEED) and Aphria Inc. (TSX:APH) all swinging to the upside on Tuesday.South of the border, U.S. stock indexes were mixed as smaller companies and banks took their worst losses in a few months. With stock indexes near record highs, investors moved some money into big-dividend stocks like real estate companies.The Dow Jones industrial average added 8.81 points to 23,557.23, marking its fourth consecutive day of record highs.Meanwhile, the S&P 500 index was down 0.49 of a point to 2,590.64 and the Nasdaq composite index dropped 18.66 points to 6,767.78.In currency markets, the Canadian dollar was trading at an average price of 78.22 cents US, down 0.24 of a U.S. cent.On the commodities front, the December crude contract fell 15 cents to US$57.20 per barrel and the December natural gas contract was up two cents at US$3.15 per mmBTU.The December gold contract was down $5.80 to US$1,275.80 an ounce and the December copper contract gave back seven cents to US$3.09 a pound.– With a file from The Associated PressFollow @DaveHTO on Twitter.last_img read more

Three Sri Lankans in Singapore sent to jail for forged Malaysia visas

Nalliah Selvamany Rohan, 26, Kanthanadan Jasitharan, 23, and Roopan Diasrepinsan, 20, were looking for employment outside of Sri Lanka. The first two approached a Sri Lankan agent, Rajanikanth, to make arrangements for a trip to Malaysia for 305,000 Sri Lankan rupees (S$2,600) each. The third approached another agent to make the same trip for 500,000 Sri Lankan rupees. Rohan and Jasitharan arrived in Singapore on June 18, and the forged Malaysian visas were attached to their passports. Roopan arrived on June 26 and did the same.On June 27, Rajanikanth arranged for a Malaysian taxi to take the three men to Malaysia at about 8pm. ICA officers nabbed the trio at about 9.20pm. Three Sri Lankan men were convicted and sentenced in Singapore on Friday (July 20) to eight months’ jail for possessing forged Malaysia visas in their passports, the Singapore Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) said in a statement today (Monday).They were arrested by ICA officers on June 27 after anomalies were detected in their visas during checks at Woodlands Checkpoint, the Straits Times reported. Rajanikanth had left Singapore before investigations started, and the Malaysian taxi driver was not found to be involved in the scam.Under the Passports Act Section 47(6), a person convicted of knowingly possessing false foreign travel documents may be fined up to $10,000 or to imprisonment not exceeding 10 years, or to both.

UN tribunal withdraws indictment against former Yugoslav army commander

The United Nations International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) has withdrawn an indictment against a former Yugoslav army commander for lack of evidence. ICTY Judge Amin El Mahdi issued the order Friday to drop the charges against Milan Zec after the prosecution filed a confidential motion, which stated that further investigations revealed that the evidence at this stage was insufficient to maintain the charges. The move did not exclude the possibility of further court action against Mr. Zec on the same charges or on other charges based on supplementary evidence obtained during ongoing investigations, according to the Prosecutor’s office. In the indictment, Mr. Zec was charged on the basis of individual criminal responsibility with 16 counts of violations of the laws or customs of war. The indictment alleged that on 1 October 1991 forces of the Yugoslav Peoples’ Army (JNA) under his command and that of others launched an attack against the Dubrovnik region of Croatia from Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the Adriatic Sea. The aim of the attack was to secure control of those areas of Croatia that were intended for inclusion in the so-called “Dubrovnik Republic.” It was the objective of the JNA and the Serbian and the Montenegrin governments to detach this area from Croatia and to annex it to Serbia/Montenegro and other areas intended for Serb control in Croatia and Bosnia, the Tribunal said. In the Fall of 1991, JNA forces allegedly killed and wounded numerous civilians in and around the city of Dubrovnik through acts of unlawful shelling. Further, the forces systematically plundered public, commercial and private property in the areas surrounding Dubrovnik of which they subsequently gained control and systematically destroyed public, commercial and religious buildings, as well as private dwellings. read more

Afghanistan UN lauds appointment of media commission as key step for 2014

The Media Commission is charged with monitoring the reporting on and fair broadcasting of the electoral campaigns and, within the regulatory framework applying to media coverage during the electoral process, addressing any violations and offences committed by the media.  The five members of the Commission were nominated by the Board of the country’s Independent Election Commission (IEC) following a professionally-conducted selection process, the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) noted in a news release.  “UNAMA emphasizes the important role the media can play in helping ensure transparency in the upcoming polls, and by promoting public awareness of the electoral process,” it stated. “It also highlights the importance of media outlets having a fair and balanced approach in their reporting on the elections.” The polls, scheduled to be held on 5 April, are seen as a vital step in the ongoing transition in Afghanistan, which next year will also see the withdrawal of the majority of allied international military forces, with national forces assuming full responsibility for security throughout the country. UNAMA, as mandated by the UN Security Council, is tasked with supporting the elections at the request of Afghan authorities and institutions. In an effort to help meet the transportation needs associated with the elections, UNAMA today donated 12 vehicles to the IEC and the Independent Electoral Complaints Commission (IECC). “At their request, UNAMA is charged with supporting Afghan electoral authorities however it can – from technical advice to drawing on best practices from the UN’s experiences in other countries,” said the Secretary-General’s Deputy Special Representative and acting head of UNAMA, Nicholas Haysom, at a hand-over ceremony held in the capital, Kabul. “In this instance, UNAMA has been asked for help with meeting pressing transportation needs and the Mission is happy to be in a position to do it in support of these organizations, which have a critical role to play in making the elections happen on time and in a credible manner,” he said.  “Without the financial and technical support of international community, we would not be able to conduct this crucial and historical election,” the Director of the IEC Secretariat, Ziaul Haq Amarkhil, said at the ceremony. read more

Lacking basic necessities Fijis children at risk after Cyclone Winston – UNICEF

An estimated 347,000 people, 40 per cent of the country’s total population, including 120,000 children, are directly impacted by Tropical Cyclone Winston, the second-strongest storm to ever make landfall, second only to Super Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, according to the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF). “This is a truly nationwide disaster for Fiji,” said UNICEF Pacific Representative Karen Allen. “It is now clear that a staggering 40 per cent of Fiji’s children are very much at risk. The immediate and long-term implications for their health, safety, education and development are colossal.” Far too many children have lost literally everything – their possessions, their home, the family’s crops and possibly income, their school and their community health clinic, she said, stressing that “many of these children don’t have safe drinking water, power or a roof over their heads.” Fiji’s Ministry of Education has reported that at least 240 schools have also been damaged or destroyed. Many are also being used as temporary evacuation centres, sheltering families who have lost their homes. On Monday, 1,177 schools were able to reopen but hundreds will face further delays due to damage – in the last week alone UNICEF has already supplied 60 temporary classrooms to most-affected schools – and many more are on the way. In addition to supporting affected children to return to school, UNICEF is working closely with the Government and development partners to ensure that affected children and their families have access to clean, safe drinking water, sanitation, health and protection. A 13-year-old Adi from Yaqeta village in the outer Yasawa Islands saw her house collapse. “I grabbed my brother and we run. I was so scared. We run from house to house three times. Now I am heartbroken to see the house where I was born and raised in, in pieces.” “Sadly, Adi’s story is a common one,” says Ms. Allen. “What makes matters worse is that, in times of emergency, a school is often a child’s refuge – but so many schools have also been knocked out of commission.” read more

Nearly a quarter (23 per cent) think their school does not tackle bullying effectively.More than a third (36 per cent) of parents are worried that their child has behaved in a bullying manner, according to the survey of 1,003 parents and children. Mr Elmore described how, as a teenager, he faced organised bullying at his secondary school designed to “make my life a misery.” After being punched in the face twice, his headteacher told him “not to worry about it.”  Boxer Lawrence Okolie said: “I was always big for my age so it was the older boys who would do the name calling, the punching and the kicking. The walks home, getting chased, that’s where it was tough. “I remember making myself sick so that I could leave school early and avoid having to see people on the way home. I remember being in the bathroom trying to pull the fat off, but obviously that wasn’t going to work.”The Diana Award has trained over 33,000 Anti-Bullying Ambassadors in 3,800 schools throughout the UK.

I ended up messing myself because I was too frightened to leave.”He contemplated suicide after a boy spat at him as they were deciding their course options: “He said to me: ‘If you are going to be in my class you had better look out.’ When I say spat, he wretched down phlegm and spat all over my face.“I went home and said if that happens again tomorrow, I am not sure I can deal with that. It’s probably best I am not here any more. That was pretty grim.”Peter Andre said he was an “outcast” when he moved to Australia where anyone with a Mediterranean appearance was labelled a “wog” even by his teachers.“I remember these kids tied me up to a fence and took turns throwing stones at me trying to see who was going to hit me in the head.

They then lost “cost and husk” (couldn’t help it!) when the bottom  fell out of oil (barrel).  The fella seems quite well-meaning, but really, he just exemplifies the truism that the “road to hell is paved with good intentions”.Even the British, by the fag end of colonial rule, accepted that Guyana  needed to diversify from the monoculture of sugar. They had the agriculture research institute move away from just creating newer varieties of sugar cane. But there was no real diversification was there? There is a lesson from that experience for us in the present. The rice industry had been painfully enlarged by private peasant farmers by that time through trial and error.But it wasn’t until the PPP government, during its 1957-64 stint, that they began to push for rice research. However, the important thing is, they didn’t stop there. They recognised that water control for drainage and irrigation is literally the lifeblood of a viable rice expansion. And so, we had the Black Bush Polder scheme that opened up not just new lands that were suitable for rice but brought in farmers who could actually produce the crop.So, if the NAREI head’s prediction of diversification on agriculture is to become real with onions, Irish potatoes, broccoli, etc, being produced in commercial quantities, the government will have to be willing to move from the “test plots” to actually facilitating real-live farmers to produce them in farmlands. Last year, the government budgeted an impressive sounding $20B for “agriculture” – more than what GuySuCo needed to tide it over until it was brought to a point of sale.But how much has been spent on facilitating real farmers to produce the new crops in real time? The spending pattern is very reminiscent of the actions of the PNC government when they took over the government in 1964. Even though they cut the budget for Agri, what they did approve was directed at their supporters – putatively for agriculture. This regime, for instance, secured a CDF loan of $2.5B (US$10.4M) for agriculture in Ithaca, Triumph and Buxton, and Mocha. Three pumps will also be installed at Buxton.It’s hoped since lands were already cleared and prepared in these areas, at least the pioneering crops will also be introduced to lead Guyana into the brave new world of agricultural diversification.It appears that offering lands to do the same with sugar workers has been abandoned.…or venal in Public InfrastructureThe bard HAD advised, “Oh what a tangled web we weave when we first practice to deceive”. But when it comes to the Public Infrastructure Ministry, it’s clear that even with sustained practice at deception, the web’s getting even more “tangled”! It’s as if Patterson wants to give Spidey a run for his money!!And your Eyewitness is only referring to Patterson’s record on the proposed new Demerara Harbour Bridge! If he’s one of the “better” Ministers (according to the Stabber news) imagine what’s going on in this government!!After the faux pas on retaining a retracting bridge, sole sourcing the Feasibility Study, and creating the “Ming Swing”, he now admits he lied when he said the IDB paid for the study.

RBI Reorganizes

first_imgReed Business Information has become the latest publisher to reorganize into market-focused divisions. The company announced Wednesday the creation of four groups: business media, entertainment, construction and BuyerZone, a lead generation business.The reorganization was a result of Chicago division president Jeff Greisch’s announcement that he is leaving the company at the end of the first quarter, RBI said. It was not immediately clear if any products would be shut down or if any layoffs are associated with the reorganization. An RBI spokesperson declined to comment. The business media group will be headed by CIO Jeff DeBalko, who will take on the added responsibility of group president. The group consists of several properties, among them RBI’s publishing group (including Publishers Weekly), the television groups (including Broadcast & Cable), RBI’s Boston-based properties (including Design News and Test & Measurement World) and RBI Interactive. Mark Finkelstein, president of RBI’s Boston operations, will now oversee its Chicago-based engineering titles, too.The construction group will be led by Reed Construction Data CEO Iain Melville. It will comprise of several properties including Building Design + Construction and Custom Builder. The Los Angeles-based entertainment group will continue to be headed by Variety president and publisher Neil Stiles. The BuyerZone group will be led by Mie-Yun Lee, who has been promoted to the newly-created position of group president.In December, RBI parent Reed Elsevier called off the auction of its b-to-b publishing arm, blaming the down global markets. Bidding had reportedly fallen from approximately $2 billion to $1 billion.Late last week, Penton Media reorganized around 13 market-focused segments, grouped under five umbrella groups. In recent months, similar reorgs have taken place at Source Media and F+W Media.last_img read more

Regional Commission Seeks Consultants for Land Use Studies at Two Mississippi Bases

Three new radiographers at Kyperounda hospital

first_imgThree new radiographers have been assigned to Kyperounda Hospital in the Troodos area as part of plans to turn the facility into a regional clinic and cut down on time and visits to Limassol hospital, the health ministry said.“With this development and with the continued availability of radiographers at Kyperounda Hospital, patients will receive health services on site without having to go to Limassol General Hospital,” a statement said.“In this way, local residents will be able to receive the treatment they need immediately and in less time.”The decision to appoint the extra radiographers was taken by the cabinet in 2017 in the context of the plan to reorganise state healthcare in rural areas.It is a first step towards the integration of the Kyperounda-Evrou-Agros-Platres health centres with the extension of their working hours and the transformation of Kyperounda Hospital into the Troodos Regional Hospital.The plan is also part of the greater health system that aims to makeprimary care centres sustainable and efficient in the new, competitive environment, the ministry said.Three years ago the government decided to upgrade the hospital witha better-equipped TB sanatorium, which was needed to comply with the World Health Organisation (WHO) requirements.Currently, the sanatorium has 16 beds dedicated to TB patients, but due to the increase in TB cases in recent years patients have been forced to share rooms, which goes against WHO guidelines recommending one person per room. The sanatorium also needs negative pressure rooms, which are vital in combating and stopping the disease from spreading through the air.In the early 1970s a pathology clinic was also set up in the same building as the sanatorium. Today the hospital with a 26-bed capacity, serves around 84 communities.You May LikeSecurity SaversWindows Users Advised To Do This TodaySecurity SaversUndoMBA Degrees | Search AdsMBA Programs Online – See For YourselfMBA Degrees | Search AdsUndoPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoThe Deniz boat incident showed clearly the intentions of the Turkish sideUndoIsraeli rape suspects freed, woman who alleged assault arrested (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
