Kuldeep, Chahal will be more effective towards latter stage of World Cup: Michael Hussey

first_imgWrist spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal should be destructive towards the business end of the World Cup because pitches will be dry and it will put India in an advantageous position, reckons former Australia batsman Michael Hussey.Chahal has taken eight wickets in four matches while Chinaman Yadav, who came into tournament struggling for form, has managed to dismiss just three batsmen so far.However, Hussey said, it will change as the tournament progresses.”Looking at the Indian team, they are wonderfully balanced team. They have got all bases covered well and towards the back end of the tournament as the pitches (are)going to be dry and more used, the spinners would get to play more role,” Hussey told PTI in an interview.”And that is where India have got a big advantage over lot of other teams. They have got two quality wrist spinners (Kuldeep and Chahal), who can be match-winners. India are brilliantly placed at the moment, they have got lot of fire power in different departments and I expect them to certainly get to the semi-finals and possibly the final,” Hussey, an ESPN Cricinfo expert, added.Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s slow knock against Afghanistan drew flak from various quarters but Hussey, who has worked closely with him at Chennai Super Kings, did not read too much into it.”I think he (Dhoni) is crucially important to this Indian team. It’s difficult, coming in and trying to bat against these mystery spinners, rotate the strike, it is challenging. You are not sure which way the ball is turning.advertisement”On a slow pitch, it makes pretty tough (for) batting. The other batsman (Kedar Jadhav) was also struggling to rotate strike (in the Afghanistan) game. So I wouldn’t be stressing too much on it.”Dhoni plays the fast bowlers early in the innings, he can rotate them a little-bit easier. I think Afghanistan was one of trickier games for someone like MS,” he added.Hussey also said that defending champions Australia have a great chance to retain the title.”I think they have a great chance now because they have qualified for the semi-finals. The team is playing is playing well. The top order (skipper Aaron Finch and David Warner) is doing a great job with the bat and Mitchell Starc with the ball.”I have been little bit worried about the fourth and fifth bowling options for Australia, but they are starting to get better, with someone like (Jason) Behrendorff coming in, and who has done a good job in the last match. I thought Nathon Lyon also did a good job.”Australia have a proud record in history of World Cup and they want to keep that going, they know how to win those big games,” said Hussey, who played 79 Tests and 185 ODIs.Asked if Australia were too dependent on their opening pair, Hussey many teams including India depend on a couple of key players.”You look at New Zealand, it is dependent on (Kane) Williamson, India are very dependent on Rohit (Sharma) and Virat Kohli, so every team has its key players and it is about other guys pulling good performances when needed and Australian team can do that.”(Usman) Khawaja had a good knock, (Steve) Smith had a good knock, Glenn Maxwell has got that X-factor and we haven’t probably seen the power of Marcus Stonis yet but on his day he can be destructive.”They haven’t had to play big roles just yet because the likes of Warner, Finch and probably Smith to a lesser degree have done a good job so far,” he said.Also Read | World Cup 2019: MS Dhoni will regret the way he started vs West Indies, says VVS LaxmanAlso Read | Virat Kohli 1st Indian captain to score four successive fifties in World CupsAlso See:last_img read more

Female Ward to be built at St. Ann’s Bay Hospital

first_imgA female ward is to be constructed at the St. Ann’s Bay Hospital, and the air conditioning unit is to be replaced at a cost of $10 million. This was announced by Minister of Health, Hon. Dr. Fenton Ferguson, who toured the institution on November 15, along with senior personnel from the Ministry. Dr. Ferguson told the staff and clients that Cabinet is to approve the $73.4 million for the female ward, and that despite the limited funds available, health facilities cannot operate below acceptable standards, and that the projects will be receiving urgent attention. “There are some minimum standards that must exist in our public hospitals, and we are moving with alacrity to ensure that this (air conditioning unit) project becomes a reality…and the unit can be up and running in the shortest possible time,” the Minister said. Regarding the female ward, Dr. Ferguson said that project will be going before the Infrastructure Committee and the Cabinet on the same day. “The project will significantly ease the pressure at the accident and emergency area, and will improve immediately, the quality of care in this institution,” he said. The Minister noted that the two operating theatres at the hospital are inadequate, and that a $17 million project will be effected to improve that area of the institution. “There is need for expansion and I am giving instructions to get those two additional theatres for the hospital. This will result in much shorter appointment time for elective surgery and other kinds of surgery,” Dr. Ferguson said. The Minister called for co-operation during the period of construction. “As the projects get underway, I appeal to patients, and to staff, to have some patience,” the Minister said.last_img read more

Hughton focuses on the positives after Burnley loss

first_imgAfter losing 1-0 at Burnley on Saturday, Brighton & Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton says he’s delighted his team took six points from three games in a week.Brighton defeated Huddersfield away and Crystal Palace at home, before losing 1-0 to Burnley at Turf Moor, and Hughton feels they should not beat themselves up considering they won six points.“Overall I’ve got to be delighted. After the first two games, if we’d come here [Turf Moor] and not turned up, then it would have been a disappointing end to the week,” Hughton told the club’s website.“But I think we came here and had a go — I can’t accuse the players of not having a go — so we have to look at the week as not being bad.“We’ve played 16 games and nine of them have been away from home, so that’s also something to take into consideration.Pep Guardiola: “Aymeric Laporte’s injury doesn’t look good” Andrew Smyth – August 31, 2019 Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola admits Aymeric Laporte’s injury “does not look good” and fears the defender will be out for a long time.“What pleases me is that outside of that top six, most teams can give one another a run. We’ve probably proved that at our best we are a match for any team outside of the top six.“What Burnley did last season was a wonderful feat, but you’ve got to have so many things going for you. Can that happen in the future? Well, that’s the future.“Our thoughts are still about improving ourselves and trying to make sure the gap to the bottom three is as big as possible.“At the moment it’s just about establishing ourselves. I still like to see us as a developing club and we’ll see where that takes us.”last_img read more

Jason Momoas Aquaman is the superhero the world needs right now

first_imgCNET’s Holiday Gift Guide: The best place to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list this season. Culture: Your hub for everything from film and television to music, comics, toys and sports. But what made me really appreciate DC Comics’ Aquaman? Unlike Marvel superheroes who always seem to struggle with internal demons and tragic backstories, Aquaman is well-adjusted and jovial. Granted, since the gritty film reboots of the Batman and Superman franchises, DC Comics have their own versions of damaged and depressing superheroes. But since 2017’s Wonder Woman film, DC movies now seem more cheerful and escapist. spoilers-dceuWarning: Minor movie spoilers ahead. Aquaman’s mother, Queen Atlanna, played by Nicole Kidman, is ripped away from him and his human father, Tom Curry (Temuera Morrison), when Aquaman’s young, but he doesn’t dive into the ocean seeking revenge against the Atlantean royal family. He doesn’t go on a bad-guy-killing spree. He smiles, jokes and shares pints with his dad at the local pub. Welcome to Atlantis. Warner Bros. Granted, much of Aquaman’s charm is due to Momoa’s built-in swagger. This isn’t the uptight, blond-boy comic-book version of Aquaman. This is a superhero we’d want to go drinking or surfing with. He’s approachable without having a Tony Stark ego. Momoa steals most of the Aquaman movie with his relaxed hang 10 surfer approach to dealing with both his insulting half-brother, Atlantean King Orm (Patrick Wilson), and new vengeance-driven villain Manta (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II). But it’s also how Aquaman treats the women in the movie that won me over. Mera (Amber Heard) might look like she’s cosplaying a sexy Ariel the Little Mermaid with a tight green costume and red wig even RuPaul would scoff at, but she’s not in the film as a love interest. She fights her own battles.  Mera isn’t about to be a pawn in yet another royal arranged marriage. And she’s definitely not there to flutter her eyelashes at Aquaman. Most of the time, she’s putting Aquaman in his place and teaching him about the underwater world she calls home. TV and Movies 2019 movies to geek out over Tags Aquaman keeps the DC comeback afloat Now playing: Watch this: Queen Atlanna is also a warrior. When we see her at the beginning of the film, she’s injured and vulnerable, but eventually trusts and falls in love with the lighthouse keeper Tom who nurses her back to health. It’s clear the movie’s real love story isn’t between Aquaman and Mera, but between his parents. Although Queen Atlanna is banished by her royal family, she fights for her survival. She’s a deep-sea Furiosa. What also makes director James Wan’s Aquaman great is its sense of wonderment about the underwater world of Atlantis. I’ll never look at an octopus the same way again. Sure there are plenty of exciting battles where Aquaman shows off his power to command all sea creatures with his mighty trident in hand, but we also get to see the everyday Atlantis where whales and giant turtles are part of the underwater kingdom’s public transportation system. We see a lot of world building that makes me long to reinvest in sea monkeys. Review: Oceanic DC superhero epic will float your boat Aquaman: 5 things I want to see from the next DCEU film Jason Momoa gets giddy and naked at SNL Enlarge ImageJason Momoa as Aquaman. Warner Bros. Pictures Thor, Black Widow, Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Black Panther. This has been my crew, my squad, my ultimate hero lineup for years. Whenever asked to choose Marvel or DC Comics, I proudly yelled Marvel. No contest. The Avengers, Agent Carter and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. have been the superheroes I needed — complex, gritty and troubled, without a hint of comic book camp. But lately, I need a fan support group just to get through all the death and destruction facing the Avengers. As the real world feels darker and more dangerous with bomb threats, mass shootings, out-of-control wildfires and turbulent politics, I need a superhero who gives me hope and reminds me to not take everything so damn seriously. Enter Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, aka Aquaman, in the new film playing worldwide and making a splash at the box office. He saves submarines from being hijacked and is always up for adventure. He’s like an underwater Thor, complete with annoying power-hungry half-brother. But Aquaman also wants to be left alone. He’s not really into politics and superhero fame. He’s an antihero who drinks like a fish and would rather buy you a beer than try to save the world.  He’s optimistic, empathetic and ready to help with a huge smile on his face.   77 Photos Captain Marvel DC Comics Marvel Disney Captain America Iron Man 1:45 More Aquaman The movie ignited my imagination more than the latest roster of Marvel movies. And even though it glosses over the problem of humans polluting the oceans with our never-ending supply of trash, there isn’t a preachy moment. There isn’t a depressing sequence where Aquaman gives up on himself or humanity. I didn’t feel one second of pending doom and gloom in the two-and-a-half-hour movie. Aquaman’s a guy you can trust with the world, both land and sea. He’s optimistic, empathetic and ready to help with a huge smile on his face. Wan’s Aquaman movie has a sense of humor about itself that makes this the kind of superhero the world needs and deserves right now. So I’m a DC Comics fangirl now… or at least until Marvel’s Captain Marvel and DC’s Shazam create a new tug-of-war in 2019.First published Dec. 22, 5 a.m. PT. Correction, 10:17 a.m. PT: This post initially misstated the franchise that created Shazam.

Audi launching 30 electrified vehicles by 2025

first_img More From Roadshow Following the launch of the E-Tron SUV this spring, Audi will bring the E-Tron Sportback — likely called E-Tron Performance — to market. It packs all the goodies of the standard E-Tron in a sort of crossover-coupe shape. In other words, it’s an E-Tron SUV with a more heavily raked roofline and slightly wider proportions.In 2020, Audi will launch the Q4 E-Tron, which rides on the Volkswagen Group’s MLB Evo electric vehicle architecture. As we reported earlier, the production Q4 E-Tron will look remarkably similar to the concept car, the production Q4 E-Tron will look remarkably similar to the concept car from this year’s Geneva Motor Show, right down to the funky, customizable LED running lights.The E-Tron GT will also arrive in 2020, and will share a number of its components with the upcoming Porsche Taycan, including a new, 800-volt charging system. Much like the Q4 E-Tron, the production GT will bear a striking resemblance to the concept from last year’s Los Angeles Auto Show, though it, too, will gain real door handles and a bit more texturing around the front fascia.Early next decade, a number of electrified Audis will launch on the company’s new PPE architecture, co-developed with Porsche. It’s unclear exactly what Audi has in store for this PPE platform, but Porsche has already confirmed the next-generation Macan SUV will use this electrified base. 51 Photos 26 Photos Audi’s new E-Tron electric SUV will hit the road in the US in the coming months. It’s a big step forward for the German automaker’s electrification plans, but as it turns out, it’s only the tip of the iceberg.At an event at Audi’s headquarters in Ingolstadt, Germany, on Wednesday, company executives confirmed the brand will launch 30 electrified vehicles by the year 2025.

Pearson Sells Financial Times to Japans Nikkei in Rs 83 Billion Deal

first_imgJapanese media group Nikkei has agreed to buy the Financial Times from Britain’s Pearson (PSON.L) for $1.3 billion, putting one of the world’s premier business newspapers in the hands of a company influential at home but little known outside Japan.The deal, struck after Nikkei beat Germany’s Axel Springer (SPRGn.DE) to the prize, marks the biggest acquisition by a Japanese media organisation and is a coup for the employee-owned firm which lends its name to the main Japanese stock market index.In the Financial Times it has acquired an authoritative global newspaper that commands strong loyalty from its readers and has coped better than others with the shift to online publishing. It was one of the first newspapers to successfully charge for access to its website.Established in 1884 and first printed on pink paper in 1893 to stand out from rivals, the FT has employed some of the leading figures in media and politics, including Robert Thomson, Chief Executive of News Corp (NWSA.O), former British finance minister Nigel Lawson and Ed Balls, an adviser to former British prime minister Gordon Brown.”I am extremely proud of teaming up with the Financial Times, one of the most prestigious news organisations in the world,” said Tsuneo Kita, chairman and group CEO of Nikkei. “We share the same journalistic values.”The Nikkei newspaper, which has a circulation surpassing 3 million for its morning edition alone, enjoys a must-read reputation for financial and business news in Japan but has struggled to break out of its home market.The paper, with its deep ties to corporate Japan, has also faced criticism for running earnings “previews”, which are considered to be leaks, days ahead of corporate results at a time when Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s government has been pushing for greater corporate transparency.As the news broke of the Nikkei deal, an FT journalist tweeted a photograph showing staff in their newsroom crowded around a television watching the developments.According to tweets from journalists who were addressed by the paper’s management, FT Editor Lionel Barber told staff the deal “was not and is not a shotgun marriage”, saying there had been hours of conversation.Reporters at the paper told Reuters there was some apprehension, as they knew very little about their new owner, but there was also relief they had not been bought by Bloomberg – another potential buyer – which could have resulted in duplication of staff roles and more potential job cuts.Chief Executive John Fallon told reporters he believed that like Pearson, the new owner had a commitment to the “fairness and accuracy of its reporting, and to the integrity and independence of its journalism”.BOLT FROM THE BLUEReuters was first to report on Thursday that the 171-year-old Pearson had finally decided to sell the business daily as it expanded more into education, sparking speculation as to who was the buyer.The name of Nikkei came out of the blue. The FT itself reported that Axel Springer, publisher of Germany’s Bild and Die Welt newspapers, was the most likely buyer.”We were all frantically Googling Axel Springer to find out who they were… and everybody was showing off their great German skills. That obviously changed quite quickly,” said one person familiar with the FT newsroom.Analysts and bankers had for years been waiting for Pearson to sell the trophy asset, although the names most closely linked with a deal were financial data terminal providers Bloomberg and Thomson Reuters (TRI.N), parent of Reuters news agency.A person familiar with the situation had told Reuters in recent weeks that Axel Springer was working on a buyout, and a spokeswoman confirmed that the group had held talks about a deal.The sale of the FT Group is expected to close during the fourth quarter of 2015 and does not include its 50 percent stake in The Economist magazine or the London headquarters of the newspaper on the banks of the River Thames.”It is hard to argue with the price,” said Richard Marwood, senior fund manager at AXA Investment Managers, a shareholder in Pearson.Barclays said the price represented a multiple of 35 times earnings before interest, tax and appreciation.Pearson, founded in 1844 as a small building firm in Yorkshire, northern England, was once one of the world’s largest building contractors and has had a long list of varied interests from banking and publishing to owning theme parks and Madame Tussaud’s waxworks.The sale will leave Pearson as the world leader in education publishing and the owner of a 47 percent stake in the Penguin Random House book publisher.last_img read more

Ellen Ochoa First Hispanic Director Of Johnson Space Center Retires

first_img Share Photo: NASA/Bill IngallsVeteran astronaut Ellen Ochoa is retiring as director of NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC). This photo shows her accompanying Vice President Mike Pence during a tour of the JSC in 2017.Veteran astronaut Ellen Ochoa is retiring on Friday as director of NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC) after a five year tenure that has included improvements in how the JSC works in more adaptive ways, an increase of diversity in the workforce and involvement in missions to the International Space Station.Ochoa joined NASA in 1988 as a research engineer at Ames Research Center and moved to the JSC in 1990 when she was selected as an astronaut. She became the first Hispanic woman to go to space when she served on the nine-day STS-56 mission aboard the space shuttle Discovery in 1993.Ochoa started as JSC director in January 2013, becoming the center’s first Hispanic director and its second female director. She helped maximize use of the International Space Station and develop the Orion spacecraft for future missions.Ochoa also emphasized the importance of the JSC workforce including initiatives on diversity and inclusion.Under her leadership, the JSC started the so-called JSC 2.0, with the goal of advancing human space flight by being lean, agile, and adaptive to change.JSC 2.0 resulted in the Class 1-E Certification Process, which allows employees to move very quickly through the flight certification process and deliver custom-built hardware only 10 months after receiving project approval.This process has allowed astronauts to benefit from hardware flown to the space station within months instead of years.The first one-year mission on the International Space Station of Scott Kelly and Mikhail Kornienko was completed in March 2016. The mission provided valuable information for future human space exploration.Additionally, with support from the JSC, Space Center Houston opened Independence Plaza in January 2016, showcasing the original Boeing 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft, NASA 905, carrying the space shuttle replica Independence.Veteran NASA engineer Mark Geyer will replace Ochoa.last_img read more

Afendoulis opposes auto insurance proposal urges legislative leaders to seek beneficial reform

first_img Categories: Afendoulis News 01Nov Afendoulis opposes auto insurance proposal, urges legislative leaders to seek beneficial reform State Representative Chris Afendoulis (R-Grand Rapids Township) today announced his opposition to House Bill 5013, which seeks to amend Michigan’s Auto No-Fault system and is currently being debated by the Michigan House of Representatives. The bill would effectively dismantle the policy which has provided Michigan’s motorists with the best coverage in the nation for nearly 40 years.“Without question, this bill is a bad deal for my constituents. While drivers may temporarily pay a little less in premiums, they’ll receive far fewer benefits and take on far greater risks. I simply cannot support this bill as it stands today.”“It’s plain to me and many of my colleagues that this bill works only for the benefit of auto insurance companies and trial lawyers. It claims to offer rate reductions, but provides huge loopholes to protect the bottom lines of auto insurance companies.”Afendoulis added, “As someone who believes in free markets, I can’t support a bill where the government mandates prices and fee schedules between private parties. This bill shifts costs to taxpayers and Medicaid without lowering rates.”The bill also puts seniors at risk, Afendoulis said. “Senior citizens need to be aware that Medicare does not cover many of the benefits covered by Auto No Fault. The risk for seniors is that they will need to spend their own money for care they receive now under the current system.”“I am eager to consider reforms which would save drivers money – things like meaningful measures to root out fraud and abuse, transparency initiatives which would finally open the books on the $20 billion catastrophic claims fund, and changes to attendant care policies.” Afendoulis noted that several bills have been introduced which would address these concerns. The bills have been referred to the House Insurance Committee, but to date have not been given a hearing.Afendoulis says he is urging legislative leaders to take a second look before they pass legislation with such far-reaching negative implications.“Without question, auto insurance rates are too high.
