BCCI seeks Virat Kohli’s help to choose India’s next coach: Sources

first_imgThe Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has reportedly sought help from Test captain Virat Kohli to choose between Anil Kumble and Ravi Shastri as the next head coach. The board is likely to make a decision by Wednesday.The Cricket Advisory Committee, comprising Sourav Ganguly, VVS Laxman and Sachin Tendulkar interviewed the six shortlisted candidates in Kolkata on Tuesday and now have to pick a clear winner.”Kohli will have to send his recommendation to the Board by Wednesday,” a source close to BCCI told India Today.Kumble, Shastri, Praveen Amre, Lalchand Rajput, Tom Moody and Stuart Law – made presentations and showcased their blueprint for the future, it ultimately boiled down to just two: Kumble and Shastri. And going into the final round, Kumble seems to have left the field behind.Two questions posed by the committee were the most critical. They asked each of the six (a) Why should you be given the team and (b) How will you help them win abroad? Kumble was both methodical and persistent and the fact that it was his era at the turn of Millennium that reversed the old Indian tradition of ‘winning at home and losing abroad’, Kumble is all but home. It is no co-incidence that Kumble played in Indian cricket’s Golden Period with Ganguly, Tendulkar and Laxman. (Ganguly raises questions on Dhoni’s future as India captain)Sources said Kumble’s was the longest presentation as well and he spelt different blueprint for different formats. He has mentored Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League besides being chairman of ICC’s Cricket Committee and BCCI’s Technical Committee. (Hope to finalise new India coach by June 24: Ganguly to India Today) Shastri made his presentation via video conference from Thailand and harped upon the 20-odd months he spent with the team. While the Test team did well without being spectacular, the ODI and T20 team didn’t quite live up to the promise during his time, failing to go beyond semifinals of the World Cup 2015 and the World T20 this year. He has the backing of Test captain Kohli but India Today learns at least two of the three CAC members are more inclined towards Kumble, besides a couple of very influential officials within the BCCI.advertisementlast_img read more

Ireland beats Italy 1-0 to advance to round of 16

first_imgLILLE, France (AP) — Ireland advanced to the knockout stages of the European Championship for the first time after it beat a reshuffled Italian side 1-0 on Wednesday.An 85th minute late goal from Robbie Brady was enough for the spirited Ireland side to secure a place in the round of 16 as one of the best third-place teams. Its reward — a match against France in Lyon on Sunday.“It was very special. I am thrilled, it was a great win,” Ireland coach Martin O’Neill said. “We deserved to win. We played some phenomenal stuff. There wasn’t a player in the Irish shirt that didn’t play heroically.”Italy, which was already assured of top spot in Group E after two straight group wins, will meet defending champion Spain next in what is potentially the most mouth-watering match of the round of 16.Brady’s goal was just reward for an inspired performance by the Ireland team, which needed to win to get through to the next round.His goal, which stemmed from a cross by second-half substitute Wes Hoolahan, came just moments after Hoolahan himself had missed a golden chance to put Ireland ahead.“It’s a proud night for myself and fantastic for the team,” Brady said. “The lads worked their socks off today. It was the perfect timing for a goal.”Spurred on by its passionate green-clad fans, Ireland tried to drag the Italians into a physical battle almost from the opening whistle. In the first few minutes, there were some crunching tackles, most notably when Jeff Hendrick hit Alessandro Florenzi with a flying tackle.Weakened by the absence of injured striker Jon Walters, Ireland missed two clear chances to take the lead in the first half. Hendrick sent a 20-meter shot just wide and Daryl Murphy saw his header off a corner saved by goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu.Ireland’s players celebrate at the end of the Euro 2016 Group E soccer match between Italy and Ireland at the Pierre Mauroy stadium in Villeneuve d’Ascq, near Lille, France, Wednesday, June 22, 2016. (AP Photo/Geert Vanden Wijngaert)Italy’s only first-half attempt came two minutes before halftime when Ciro Immobile’s 20-meter curling shot went just wide.While Ireland strived for a winner, Italy found some fluency in the second half. Simone Zaza went close in the 53rd with a powerful volley that went just over the cross bar, and substitute Lorenzo Insigne hit the far post with a curling low shot from outside the area.“We conceded the goal just as we seemed to take control of the game,” Insigne said. “The result is a shame but in the end they deserved it.”Ahead of the next round, Italy coach Antonio Conte had left eight regular starters out of his lineup, including goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, who has been suffering from a fever over the last few days. Only defenders Andrea Barzagli and Leonardo Bonucci as well as midfielder Alessandro Florenzi started in Italy’s previous game against Sweden.“We conceded when we were on top,” Conte said through an interpreter. “It was a very physical match on a barely playable pitch. The pitch did punish us a bit more than them.”The pitch at the Stade Pierre Mauroy is to be re-laid over the coming days, largely because of the impact of the recent heavy rain.Under-strength or not, the victory is one of Ireland’s most notable victories.“We are not going to give up here,” Brady said. “We’ve managed to beat some of the best teams in the world. If we click together, we can beat anyone.” TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

PORT: SoM IoT / Industry 4.0 modules for integration into LINUX environments

first_img Continue Reading Previous Clientron debuts flexible thin client S810 with innovative Port-on-Foot designNext Balancing AI chip requirements with high-level synthesis PORT is expanding its SoM offering for real-time communication applications for use on Linux. The SoM IoT / Industry 4.0 modules offer PROFINET CCB and EtherNetIP on board and can now be easily integrated into LINUX environments. The SoM-IoT Real Time Communication Module provides a cost effective and easy to integrate communication solution. Real-time communication systems such as PROFINET CCB, EtherNetIP (EtherCAT and CANopen on request) are made available in just one module. An extensive range of tools for management, integration and design drastically reduce development and integration times. With an integrated update service you always stay up to date.The SoM-IoT Real Time communication module is prepared for use with various Ethernet ports such as RJ45, Mini RJ45 (IP20 applications) as well as M12 or M8 (IP54 applications). So the PHYs and the transformers are already available on board on the SoM. So only the SoM module and the corresponding Ethernet connectors have to be integrated on the host module.The SPI of the SoM-RIN32M3 module is supposed to connect the module to the external application processor. Due to the independence between the Module Clock and the clock of the external application processor, the serial transmission with the SPI interface in asynchronous mode is performed by 3 module pins.The application controller as SPI master determines the SPI communication mode. The SPI data format can first be switched between MSB and LSB. The number of bits in each transmission can be changed to any number from 8 to 16 or to 20, 24 or 32 bits. The communication is based on a 128-byte transfer buffer that can transport multiple requests.The communication is based on a cyclic scheme in which process data can be transmitted cyclically with each request of the application control. Non-real-time communication (RPC) uses the same transport, but processing is decoupled from real-time communication. Thus real-time data can be exchanged independently of function calls of the API.The SoM works with any Linux system that provides an SPI interface as well as an I²C interface via the kernel. Furthermore, high precision timers are needed. PORT offers a SoM EVAL platform which can be tested together with a Raspberry PI under LINUX. The SoM Module EVAL board has a PMOD / ARDUINO interface and can thus be combined with other EVAL boards.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Boards & Modules last_img read more

‘Hardik Pandya was disturbed by Koffee with Karan row but he learnt from his mistake’

first_imgFormer India wicketkeeper Kiran More said Hardik Pandya was “very disturbed” during his time away from the India cricket team after he was suspended along with KL Rahul for their controversial comments on Koffee With Karan.More, who has been Hardik’s mentor right from the Baroda all-rounder’s formative years, insisted that Hardik has learnt from his mistakes and is completely focussed on cricket.Hardik and KL Rahul were suspended by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) after the duo made borderline sexist and racist comments during their appearances on a popular television show, Koffee With Karan last month. Both Hardik and Rahul faced a lot of flak from the public and former cricketers before the BCCI sent the two cricketers back home during India’s tour of Australia.Hardik and Rahul’s careers were in limbo as the BCCI Committee of Administrators were unable to decide on the quantum of punishment for the duo. Nonetheless, the BCCI revoked their suspensions temporarily last month after which Hardik straightaway flew to New Zealand and joined the senior national team midway during the recently-concluded ODI series.Hardik made an immediate impact as he picked up two wickets and took a stunning catch to dismiss New Zealand’s Kane Williamson in India’s seven-wicket win in the third ODI against the Black Caps on January 28. Days later, Pandya smashed a 22-ball 45 and picked up two wickets as India thrashed New Zealand by 35 runs in Wellington and completed a 4-1 win.Expressing delight at the way Hardik made an immediate impact on his return from suspension, More told indiatoday.in: “Absolutely [was expecting him to make an immediate impact on comeback]. He is a very talented cricketer, no doubt about it. He had no bad intentions at all. The chat show incident happened. That’s what shows the character of the cricketer. He is a cricketer who works very hard and gives his 100% whenever he plays for his teams. Happy he has made a huge comeback.advertisement”Definitely, he was very disturbed [during the Koffee With Karan row]. Good, he has made a huge impact straight away,” More added.Brothers in arm #onedream #india pic.twitter.com/8qaIPPU5Zqhardik pandya (@hardikpandya7) February 5, 2019Stressing that the strong comeback is a reflection of Hardik Pandya’s mental strength: More said: “He just went for an interview and talked something. And it went out of control. It’s part of life. You learn when you make a mistake. Now he will definitely know what he needs to do in the future. He has realised that. He has also apologised to the BCCI.”Now, he is clear about his cricket. His focus is on cricket and he showed how much he wants to play for India in New Zealand.”The suspension for him was like getting dropped from the India team. For him, it was like he was trying to make a comeback. He and Rahul both of them have realised they made mistakes. He is mentally so strong and it has shown with the way he has made the comeback.”Perfect weather here in Hamilton for an intense session. pic.twitter.com/MwVHldu6GJhardik pandya (@hardikpandya7) January 30, 2019Hardik Pandya key member of India’s World Cup team: MoreMeanwhile, Kiran More said Hardik Pandya’s return provides Team India with a big boost ahead of the 2019 Cricket World Cup, starting May 30 in England. More pointed out that his all-round ability provides the much-needed balance to Virat Kohli’s team who are among the favourites to lift the coveted title in the Old Blighty.”It [Pandya’s comeback] is good for Team India as well. He gives a good balance and a key member of the team. At the World Cup, I am sure, he is going to be a very important player for India. An all-rounder like him is what we need. He can bat the way he has been batting in the death overs. He can bowl and he can take those catches. You don’t get players like this often,” More added.Hardik is on the right track: MoreHardik seems to have mellowed down, especially with the way he celebrates his wickets and carries himself on the field. However, More believes his ward is “absolutely fine” and is on the right track.”I don’t think there’s any particular reason [for his subdued celebrations]. Everybody goes through something similar to this in their careers. Once he is there with the team, he will get matured.”He is a young kid, he has been there for the last two to three years. With every match, he is learning something new. Once you get matured, you realise what you’re doing. He is absolutely fine and he is on the right track.”advertisementHardik has been joined by his older brother Krunal Pandya in the India squad as a Rohit Sharma-led India side gears up for the upcoming three-match T20I series, starting Wednesday in Wellington.Also Read | Hardik Pandya’s form with bat and ball a good sign for Team India: Harbhajan SinghAlso Read | Hardik Pandya a natural talent and a match-winner: Ravi ShastriAlso Read | Indian team competitive in any part of world and on any surface: Sachin TendulkarAlso See:last_img read more

Australian Men’s Squad visit a success

first_imgWe had only just recovered from the return of the ark…. torrential rain, flooding and being cut off from the rest of the civilisation when the god’s descended upon us. It was a day the likes of none I had ever been blessed with the opportunity to witness.Names that will echo in the halls of touch history came to play the greatest sport on earth on a hot balmy weekend in Townsville….. Shuker, Sonda, Day-Berg Muir and Jones just to name a few. Little words can be used to describe how great these God’s were. Their grace, speed and skill (although lacking somewhat on Saturday morning!!!) came to the front on the shores of the great Coral Sea on Saturday afternoon. The 200 willing spectators got a first hand view of the best that the game has on offer.  Chris “Fazz” Farrow put on a try scoring performance, while Drummy and Sonda threw long balls from one end of the Strand Park to the other.  The game could only be described as the most free following game of touch most of the spectators would ever had the opportunity to witness (the fact that there were six referees on the game was a great contributor to this).On a more serious note, the weekend in general was a great success and I’m very pleased to still hear players and people that came down to watch the weekend talking about it.  But by far the most pleasing aspect was that at the recent NTL in Port Macquarie, North Queensland players had the opportunity to catch up with the Australian players and talk about the weekend (something that North Queensland players, except for the very elite, would never have had the opportunity to do). Tony Trad played assistant coach for 2 games, to the North Queensland Open Women at the recent NTL, something that the players and coaching staff were extremely thrilled to have occur.The weekend ran extremely smoothly. On Friday afternoon the team was slit into 2. 1 team visited Kirwan High School and the other William Ross High School. Players conducted drills and training sessions at both schools, photos were taken and players signed whatever the kids put in front of them.Saturday started slowly….it was extremely hot! Tony Trad conducted a coaching session with the Level 2 course attendants and about 25 local coaches. Tony gave an overview of the game as he saw it and then conducted a training session with the Australian men for the coaches to view. Generally most coaches got a great appreciation of where their own limitations lay and general areas of how to improve or bring up to speed the team they are coaching with the latest policies and techniques.Saturday afternoon saw the team head down to Queens Park to conduct a kids coaching clinic. 60 kids of varying ages were run through skill drills, small games and passing techniques.  I think the Aussie men had more fun than the kids as they ran around showing off, the willing and encouraging group of youngsters just watched on in awe.  Again the kids had the chance to have photo’s taken, receive signed touch balls and generally have a chat to the guys after they finished.I think the highlight of the weekend for the players was being drafted into the local Men’s 1st division teams and being able to play within these teams. Both Sharks and Frogs presented their drafted team players with club uniforms as a memento of their time in Townsville. The Aussie team did a great job of backing up after a full day of activity to participate in a game against an invitational Townsville team. Under lights about 300 players and spectators again got to witness the best that Australian Touch has to offer.Sunday morning for 3 lucky young players was probably the highlight of their touch career.  Betty, Alan and Lochie got warm-up, train and play with the Aussie men’s team. They were given playing shirts, subbed off and on and were involved in the half time and full time debriefs.All-in-all the weekend was a huge success and well received by all. This isn’t to say that there weren’t a number of things that could have been done better or improved upon for next time.  General notice period could have been better, organization of the player’s time and commitments could be improved, allowing the players to have greater recovery time.  The heat had a major impact on the players and for next time a winter timing would be far more suitable. The lack of support from regional areas outside Townsville also needs to be improved.I will finish on a really positive note and say that we could not have hoped to have hosted a better bunch of guys. They conducted themselves in an outstanding manner on and off the field.  They made themselves available to the kids, players, coaches, parents and anyone else that wanted their attention. A big thank you to Gavin Shuker, who without this opportunity would never have been possible and also to Tony Trad and TFA for considering and supporting the concept.Now we have a great relationship with the coaching staff and players I believe that we have the opportunity to have more programs like this come North Queensland’s way.Thanks to Anita Hagarty for providing the article content.last_img read more

Truro Receives Disaster Financial Assistance

first_imgThe Town of Truro is getting the final instalment of financial help for flooding damage sustained in 2003 to municipal roads, parks, sports fields, and other municipal infrastructure. Jamie Muir, Minister of Service Nova Scotia and Municipal Relations, on behalf of acting Minister of Emergency Management David Morse, presented the $96,344 cheque today, March 17, to Mayor Bill Mills. The funding is provided to the municipality under the Nova Scotia Disaster Financial Assistance Program. “Devastating events like flooding can take a toll on individuals and communities, especially if municipalities are unable to recover expenses to repair damage caused by severe weather,” said Mr. Muir. “The province’s disaster financial assistance program has helped the Town of Truro recover some of its expenses as it rebuilds its flood-damaged infrastructure.” In the spring of 2003, continuous heavy rains caused severe flooding throughout Truro. A local state of emergency was declared to ensure public safely, and facilitate a municipal and provincial response to the emergency. Several roads, schools, businesses and public offices were closed and roads were either washed out or closed due to flooding. “On behalf of the citizens of Truro, I thank the government for stepping up to the plate on emergency issues. It gives the town and citizens comfort to know that in times of emergency we can act quickly and decisively to help those affected by disaster. Governments serving the people, that’s what it’s all about,” said Mr. Mills. The Disaster Financial Assistance Program is a cost-sharing initiative with Public Safety Canada that enables communities, businesses, and individuals to recover extraordinary costs after emergency events. The final instalment of disaster financial assistance provided today brings the entire provincial contribution to $1.3 million since 2003.last_img read more

Royal Visitors at Membertou 400 Cultural Village

first_imgMi’kmaq elders, poets, historians and artisans showcased their culture, traditions and computer animation skills today, June 28, to Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh at a Mi’kmaq cultural village on the Halifax Common. The Royal Couple were greeted at the Common by Grand Chief Ben Sylliboy, Grand Keptin Andrew Denny and respected Mi’kmaq educator Sister Dorothy Moore. “The Mi’kmaq have always shared a genuine affection and deep respect for Her Majesty and His Royal Highness,” said Grand Chief Sylliboy. “We are humbled and honoured by Her Majesty’s heartfelt interest in learning more about our history, culture and future direction. “We are particularly delighted that Her Majesty is visiting us in 2010 to help mark the celebration of the 400th anniversary of the baptism of Grand Chief Henri Membertou.” The Mi’kmaq cultural village demonstrated traditional techniques for preparing moose hide, making baskets, and splint-making. There was a game of Waltes, a Mi’kmaq game played with dice, and a description of the importance of artifacts from the Debert archaeological site dating back 11,000 years. Mi’kmaq students presented the Royal Couple with two Mi’kmaq legends on the Northern Lights and the buffalo – depicted through digital animation. Her Majesty and His Royal Highness also learned about the 400th anniversary celebrations of the baptism of Grand Chief Membertou. The cultural village program also featured the Se’t A’newey Kina’matino’kuom Youth Choir from St. Anne’s School in Conne River, N.L., which performed Weleyut (Amazing Grace). “The Mi’kmaq are Nova Scotia’s first peoples, and their friendship with other nations remains a basis of our province today,” said Premier Darrell Dexter. “Membertou 400 is an important opportunity to build a greater understanding of the Mi’kmaq nation and showcase their attributes as a lively, distinctive and innovative people.” Gifts bestowed on Her Majesty and His Royal Highness included a handmade basket; a painting in honour of the tour by renowned artist Allan Syliboy; a reading by Mi’kmag Poet Laureate Lindsay Marshall, who prepared a poem in honour of the Royal Tour to Nova Scotia by Her Majesty and His Royal Highness, and a CD containing animations of Mi’kmaq legends created by First Nations HelpDesk students. The Queen will entrust Mr. Sylliboy’s painting to the Mi’kmaq community for them to enjoy, before it is returned to the Palace at a later date. The Royal Couple were saluted by Mi’kmaq veterans and RCMP as they departed from the Cultural Village. Mi’kmaq chiefs from all 13 Mi’kmaq communities, Grand Council representatives, National Chief Shawn Atleo, and other Assembly of First Nation representatives also participated in or witnessed the celebration on the Halifax Common. Her Majesty’s outfit featured traditional Mi’kmaq double-curl motif beadwork which was completed over the past two months by Genevieve Julian and her daughter Valerie Julian of Millbrook. The Royal Couple’s visit to the cultural village was a highlight of the Membertou 400 celebration, which began with the re-enactment of the baptism of the legendary Mi’kmaq leader at the Port Royal National Historic Site on June 24. The festivities continued at Atlantic Canada’s largest Powwow or Maiomi, which ran June 25 to June 27. Her Majesty the Queen and His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh are visiting Nova Scotia from June 28-30 as part of their Royal Tour in Canada. Event details are available at www.gov.ns.ca/royaltour. Interesting facts and live commentary are also available on Twitter via @royaltour, and on Facebook at gov.ns.ca/facebook. The Royal Couple will also travel to Manitoba and Ontario during their Canadian tour, which concludes July 6.last_img read more

Mass Resignations Frequency Reduction at The New Republic

first_img Given the frequency reduction, we will also be making some changes to staff structure. This is not a decision we make lightly, but we believe this restructuring is critical to the long-term success of the company. We will be holding an all-hands meeting tomorrow to help answer any questions or concerns you may have. Editor Franklin Foer, at the helm since the magazine was bought and rebooted under Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes in 2012, informed staff of his departure, citing differences with management over their respective “vision[s] for TNR.” Chris Hughes issued a series of tweets Friday morning on the mass exodus. CEO Guy Vidra, who left Yahoo! to join TNR in September, confirmed the moves in a memo later in the day. He announced that Gabriel Snyder, who’s held editorial leadership roles with Bloomberg News, Atlantic Media’s The Wire and Gawker, would be replacing Foer. Leon Wieseltier, a top lieutenant and the magazine’s literary editor, is also leaving. BREAKING: Mass resignations just submitted at @TNR He also officially stated that the magazine would be moving to a “newly redesigned, expanded office in New York’s Union Square.” — Ryan Lizza (@RyanLizza) December 5, 2014 Full list… pic.twitter.com/SdM0VPQ8Et Weeks after its 100th anniversary issue and an elaborate gala of Washington elites, The New Republic made major changes, cutting its frequency in half, naming a new lead editor and announcing an impending move from Washington, D.C. to New York. And lastly – as some of you may know – we will be moving to a newly re-designed, expanded office in New York’s Union Square. New York was the original home of The New Republic, and we’re thrilled to further expand our presence here. These are exciting times for our company which will demand change. We are committed to the roots of this magazine – an experiment in opinion to help address the challenges of our time. We can only do this together. Along with the editorial changes, Vidra announced that the brand would cut its yearly print frequency from 20 issues to 10, and that “changes to staff structure” would follow as a result. New Collection  center_img Read Vidra’s full memo below: In his time here, Frank has led a meaningful expansion of our team, has done a terrific job advancing the mission of our storied institution, and has continued to insert The New Republic’s voice into the national discourse. We wish him nothing but the best and are very grateful for all he’s done. “As we move forward under Gabriel’s leadership, we are re-imagining The New Republic as a vertically integrated digital media company,” Vidra says in the memo. “Gabriel is ideally suited to bridge traditional journalism and digital media.” As you’ve heard, Frank Foer is leaving the company. We are excited to announce that Gabriel Snyder will assume the role of Editor-in-Chief. In addition, Leon Wieseltier will be moving on. As we restructure The New Republic, we will be making significant investments in creating a more effective and efficient newsroom as well as improved products across all platforms. This will require a recalibration of our resources in order to deliver the best product possible. In order to do so, we’ve made the decision to reduce the frequency of our print publication from 20 to 10 issues a year and will be making improvements to the magazine itself. As we move forward under Gabriel’s leadership, we are re-imagining The New Republic as a vertically integrated digital media company. Gabriel is ideally suited to bridge traditional journalism and digital media. He is committed – as am I – to The New Republic’s mission of impact, influence and persuasion, but understands that fulfilling that mission in today’s media landscape requires new forms. He truly reflects the “straddle generation” of journalists and editors who remain deeply rooted in the qualities of traditional journalism – having worked with brands such as the New York Observer and The Atlantic – but also understands what it takes to create content that will travel across all platforms. We believe he is the right person to help us to maintain the core DNA of The New Republic, while propelling us forward to the 21st century. Leon has made an unsurpassed contribution to The New Republic over the last 30 years, and the qualities that he represents are the beating heart of this brand. He is quite frankly an institution unto himself whose indelible mark on this place will never go away. I want to share some news about forthcoming changes at The New Republic. To All Staff, The news has been met with harsh criticism from watchdogs across the industry. With no shortage of fresh insider sources, Hughes and Vidra have been painted as out-of-touch Silicon Valley types with little interest in journalism. TNR staffers reacted to the news with outrage on social media and, reportedly, in the newsroom. Nearly 30 editors are said to have resigned. Guylast_img read more

Trump welcomes Chinas move to restart talks amid worsening trade war

first_imgU.S. President Donald Trump at G-7 summit in Biarritz, France on August 26, 2019.ReutersHours after Chinese Vice Premier Liu He said Beijing is willing to resolve the trade dispute through talks, US President Donald Trump said he welcomed China’s request for a “calm” resolution.Trump, who is at the G-7 meeting in France’s Biarritz, called Chinese President Xi Jinping a “great leader” and said China contacted officials to re-start trade talks between the two countries.Liu He, who has been leading the trade talks with the US, had earlier said trade tensions between the two countries are not conducive to China, the US and the interests of people all over the world. “We are willing to solve the problem through consultation and cooperation with a calm attitude, and resolutely oppose the escalation of the trade war,” said Liu He, who is the top economic advisor to Chinese President Xi Jinping.He also welcomed investors from around the world, including the US, to operate in China. “We will continue to create a good investment environment, protect intellectual property rights, promote the development of smart intelligent industries with our market open, resolutely oppose technological blockades and protectionism, and strive to protect the completeness of the supply chain,” the Chinese diplomat said.The statement comes days after tensions between the two countries peaked as China slammed tariffs on US goods worth $75 billion, including soybeans, automobiles and oil.Trump announced a retaliatory 5 percent increase in tariff, making the total US duty on Chinese goods worth $550 billion. The current 30 percent tariffs imposition is scheduled to begin from October 1, which also the 70th founding anniversary of the People’s Republic of China. Representative ImageReutersThe tense situation between the two countries escalated on Sunday with Donald Trump stating that he regretted not raising the tariffs higher and ordering US companies to find “alternatives”, which include closing operations and relocating the production to the US. The US Secretary of the Treasury, Steven Mnuchin, on the sidelines of the G-7 meeting in France called out Beijing for unfair trade practices and said if China would agree to a fair and balanced relationship “we would sign that deal in a second”.White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow also echoed Mnuchin’s statement and welcomed Trump’s order of companies to come back to the US. “Come home to America, we’ve got the best tax system, we’ve got the best regulatory system, it’s an easy place to make money, the best technology in the world. Come home. That’s what the president is saying,” Kudlow said.Global economy ramificationExperts have raised concerns that the ongoing trade war between the two largest economies will likely result in a global recession.Trump has dismissed the concerns and has said that “our country is doing really well, we had horrible trade deals and I’m straightening them out”.Despite Trump’s downplaying of the situation, Chinese currency Renminbi weakened to a new 11-year low on Monday. Stock markets in the Asia-Pacific region also tumbled sharply, following trade tensions that worsened over the weekend.Australia and New Zealand Banking Group (ANZ) analyst noted that the “fragile negotiations are spiralling out of control”.”The escalation suggests uncertainty will continue to weigh on global trade, industrial production and investment, with no sign of a resolution,” Financial Times quoted the analyst as saying.Chinese media slams the USChinese state media have slammed Washington’s aggressive stance on the trade issue and have said that the US will “never be allowed to control China’s fate”.Describing the trade war as “an unavoidable trial by fire”, an editorial in China Daily said, “The country (China) will emerge stronger.”An editorial in state-owned media outlet Global Times said if the US companies decide to give up the Chinese market, it will be “suicide” for them, especially those from the auto sector.last_img read more

Searching samudra stories

first_imgThe Jehangir Art Gallery will be witness to an exhibition that recalls the magic and the eternal quality of beauty in the ‘Samudra Manthan stories’ at the hands of artist Arpitha Reddy – a brilliant artist who lives in Delhi and is a practitioner of the Guruvayoor Temple Arts. Arpitha is an artist who spends time researching the ‘Samudramanthan’, and works for unending hours on the details and narrative of the epic nature of divine and evil forces, which is a rare breed in this modern millennium. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfArpitha has the gods and goddesses on her fingertips; her meticulous strokes of painterly embellishments can conjure up even the finest of jeweled crowns and silk laden robes for the many forms of divinity that crowd and punctuate her canvasses. Her study of Kerala murals has taken her into deeper shores of the tales of divinity.Temples are known to be spiritual, political, cosmological, astronomical and geo-physical centers. They are, in other words, intended to represent microcosms of the universe and are organized as mandalas – all these microcosms come alive in her little dictats that come coded with colours and contours that have been created with perfection. While we see the many characters that dot the story, it is the smaller hybrid creations that catch our gaze. The ‘Kinnari’ or the ‘Kamadhenu’ are as charming as the ‘Nagaraja’ and the ‘Nagarani’.’Airava-ta’ the mythological white elephant is a divine creation of majesty. ‘Airava-ta’ who carries the Hindu god ‘Indra’, also called ‘Ardha-Matanga’, meaning “elephant of the clouds”; ‘Naga-malla’, meaning “the fighting elephant”; and ‘Arkasodara’, meaning “brother of the sun,” is a fascinating creature of symbolism with its four tusks and seven trunks and is spotless white. The treatment given to the contours is what is riveting. The embellishments, an amalgam of terracotta toned orange and gold with a hint of vermillion red thrown in.Equally fetching is ‘Kamadhenu Nandi’ and ‘Kinnari.’ Arpitha creates ‘Kamadhenu’ as a creature of beauty and bounty as she stands nestled midst the leaves of the kalpavriksha and adorned as an emblem of divine majesty. While she does not focus on her well endowed breasts we are given a pair of richly ornate feathers and a crown that addresses her position as the queen of the kingdom of milk giving cows.Kamadhenu’s motherhood and nourishing attributes are emphasized through her twin breasts. The Puranas declare “she is a goddess with marvellous powers and attainments who gives milk whenever needed by gods and sages,” and that “all the cattle in the world today are descended from ‘Kamadhenu’.Nandi According to the VayuPurana, ‘Nandi’ is the son of Kasyapa and Surabhi. In the SauraPurana ‘Nandi’, his role as Shiva’s gatekeeper is described as, ‘adorned with all ornaments, glowing like a thousand suns, holding a trident in his hand, three-eyed, adorned with a sliver of the moon, a thunderbolt in his hand, four-armed, like a second Sankara [Shiva]’.Besides being Shiva’s vehicle, ‘Nandi’ is also the chief of the god’s team of ganas or attendants, and consequently he often carries a golden staff of office. His other duties include being the guardian of all quadrupeds and the provider of music as Shiva dances the tandava – the cosmic dance of creation. Arpitha’s ‘Nandi’ is white and pristine; it gazes directly into our eyes as it stands as a model of perfection in devotion of its service to Lord Shiva.last_img read more

first_imgNews | August 29, 2012 MRI Findings Shed Light on Multiple Sclerosis August 29, 2012 — New magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) research shows that changes in brain blood flow associated with vein abnormalities are not specific for multiple sclerosis (MS) and do not contribute to its severity, despite what some researchers have speculated. Results of the research are published online in the journal Radiology.“MRI allowed an accurate evaluation of cerebral blood flow that was crucial for our results,” said Simone Marziali, M.D., department of diagnostic imaging, University of Rome Tor Vergata, Rome.MS is a disease of the central nervous system in which the body’s immune system attacks the nerves. There are different types of MS, and symptoms and severity vary widely. Recent reports suggest a highly significant association between MS and chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI), a condition characterized by compromised blood flow in the veins that drain blood from the brain. This strong correlation has generated substantial attention from the scientific community and the media in recent years, raising the possibility that MS can be treated with endovascular procedures like stent placement. However, the role of brain blood flow alterations on MS patients is still unclear.To investigate this further, Italian researchers compared brain blood flow in 39 MS patients and 26 healthy control participants. Twenty-five of the MS patients and 14 of the healthy controls were positive for CCSVI, based on color Doppler ultrasound (CDU) findings. The researchers used dynamic susceptibility contrast-enhanced (DSC) MRI to assess blood flow in the brains of the study groups. DSC MR imaging offers more accurate assessment of brain blood flow than that of CDU. MRI and CDU were used to assess two different anatomical structures.While CCSVI-positive patients showed decreased cerebral blood flow and volume compared with their CCSVI-negative counterparts, there was no significant interaction between MS and CCSVI for any of the blood flow parameters. Furthermore, the researchers did not find any correlation between the cerebral blood flow and volume in the brain’s white matter and the severity of disability in MS patients.The results suggest that CCSVI is not a pathological condition correlated with MS, according to Marziali, but probably just an epiphenomenon — an accessory process occurring in the course of a disease that is not necessarily related to the disease. This determination is important because, to date, studies of the prevalence of CCSVI in MS patients have provided inconclusive results.“This study clearly demonstrates the important role of MRI in defining and understanding the causes of MS,” Marziali said. “I believe that, in the future, it will be necessary to use powerful and advanced diagnostic tools to obtain a better understanding of this and other diseases still under study.”For more information: www.radiology.rsna.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Related Content 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 Images of regions of interest (colored lines) in the white matter skeleton representation.

Bill drafted for debt securitisation

first_imgThe government has drafted legislation that introduces debt securitisation, a financial instrument which it believes will help Cypriot banks alleviate the still-dire situation with Non-Performing Loans (NPLs).NPLs still constitute the biggest weak spot of the Cypriot economy, accounting for €23.7bn, or 47 per cent of total loans, according to March 2017 data.Responding to an MP’s question recently, finance minister Harris Georgiades said a bill on debt securitisation has been prepared and would soon be submitted to parliament.Under the legislation, banks would be able to set up companies to which they would transfer loans on their balance sheet. In turn, using the loans as collateral, these companies issue securities or bonds to investors.Debt securitisation was a measure requested of Cyprus by its international lenders, known as the ‘troika’.According to Georgiades, debt securitisation is yet another tool to tackle the high level of NPLs in the Cypriot banking sector.Other measures include legislation on leasing – already enacted – as well as a bill which introduces credit intermediaries, currently being debated in parliament.Securitisation is the process through which an issuer creates a financial instrument by combining other financial assets and then marketing different tiers of the repackaged instruments to investors. Its stated aim is to promote liquidity in the marketplace.Mortgage-backed securities are a common example of securitisation. By combining mortgages into one large pool, the issuer can divide the large pool into smaller pieces based on each individual mortgage’s inherent risk of default and then sell those smaller pieces to investors.In securitisation, the company holding the loans, also known as the originator, gathers the data on the assets it would like to remove from its associated balance sheets. These assets are then grouped together by factors such as time remaining on the loan, the level of risk, the amount of remaining principle, and others.This gathered group of assets, now considered a reference portfolio, is then sold to an issuer. The issuer creates tradable securities representing a stake in the assets associated with the portfolio, selling them to interested investors with a rate or return.Such instruments may be described as bonds, pass-through securities, or collateralised debt obligations (CDOs).Critics have suggested that the complexity inherent in securitisation can limit investors’ ability to monitor risk, and that competitive securitisation markets with multiple securitisers may be particularly prone to sharp declines in underwriting standards. Private, competitive mortgage securitisation played an important role in the US subprime mortgage crisis.In addition, off-balance sheet treatment for securitisations coupled with guarantees from the issuer can hide the extent of leverage of the securitising firm, thereby facilitating risky capital structures and leading to an under-pricing of credit risk. Off-balance sheet securitisations also played a large role in the high leverage level of US financial institutions before the financial crisis, and the need for bailouts.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppTake Online Privacy on a whole New levelFigLeaf Beta AppUndoHistory By DaySee What Your City Used To Look Like 100 Years AgoHistory By DayUndoMarie Claire | HanacureMeet The Beauty Equivalent To TIME’s Person Of The Year AwardMarie Claire | HanacureUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoTwo arrested in connection with attempted murderUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Mosque in Government Reserved Area GRA in Maiduguri Borno State The suspected terrorists who allegedly came all the way from Bama council allegedly attempted to kill a preacher Modu Mustapha during Tafsir (Ramadan Preaching) They were however lynched by angry mobs leading to the arrest of two of the suspects while one died in the process DailyPost gathered that the terrorists who were armed with AK 47 rifles and a piston came with a Golf Saloon car and one tricycle A source told our correspondent that the incident happened at about 4 pm when the Tafsir programme was going on The source said a concerned resident who had sighted one of the terrorists with a pistol sitting uncomfortably inside the congregation alerted the residents According to him the mob beat the suspect to death and arrested two others while they were trying to escape However the Joint Task Force in Maidugri has dismissed the alleged planned attack describing it as an error of judgement by a policeman on duty In a press statement which was signed by the JTF Spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Sagir Musa and made available to Journalists in Maiduguri said “the JTF wishes to clear the air on what happened at the vicinity of El-Amin Daggash Mosque in GRA Maiduguri on Saturday 20th July 2013 “The incident was not a terrorist attack as insinuated rather it was an error of judgement by a policeman on duty that pursued someone who allegedly stole a tricycle and a bag of rice and drove off The policeman was in Mufti wore Nigeria Police Force (NPF) Reflective Jacket pursued the alleged thief and fired two gun shots” the statement noted Sagir said the incident happened very close to the said Mosque when Ramadan preaching was on adding that the firing by the policeman attracted the attention of worshippers including youth vigilantes popularly known as ‘Civilian JTF’ that were within and around the Mosque The JTF Spokesman said “as a result there was pandemonium that led to the death of one minor and three others sustained injuries” He noted that the vigilante lynched the policeman burnt the Toyota Carina Saloon Car (that the Policeman was in) and the tricycle before the JTF patrol team rescued the policeman calmed the youths and restored normalcy to the area In another development over 50 suspected terrorists were over the weekend arrested in Maduganari ward area of Maiduguri Metropolis with the assistance of civilian JTF (vigilante youths) and men of the JTF The incident which took place on Saturday was based on intelligence report that some of the fleeing terrorists around Sambisa Game Reserve Forest and Bullabulin Ngarnam areas who survived the military offensive had regrouped to Maduganari with the aim of launching fresh attacks during the Ramadan Fasting Maduganari is one of the peaceful wards of Maiduguri metropolis which had not witnessed any killings and bombings even during the heat of the crisis A military source said the suspects were picked up by the joint effort of the JTF and vigilant youths at a hideout adding that they recovered many arms and ammunitions in the process Confirming the arrest of the terror suspects the JTF Spokesman Leuitenant Colonel Sagir Musa in an interview with newsmen said there was a massive arrests of suspected Boko Haram Terrorists in Maduganari over the weekend but could not give the actual number of those arrested He added
