first_imgIt was a combination of electric shock therapy and a new It was a combination of electric shock therapy and a new trainer which helped Saina to expedite the process of her recovery. “Saina had to go through the electric shock therapy session five to six times during February. Every week she would go through the sittings for 10 minutes and it has helped her. Also there is a new training coach which helped her to gain strength,” coach Vimal Kumar said. Vimal was happy with the progress that Saina has made in the last two months. “I am quite happy with the way she has recovered. She devoted a lot of time for recovery in February. She needs that confidence for movement and stroke making. There is a lot of pressure on her. The more she plays tough matches she will get going. But I think this is the fittest that I have seen her since World Championship,” Vimal said. “Of course she can get better. But now it cant happen, there is no time. May to July will be the time when we can systematically work on that. She has done everything possible. She will play two more tournaments at Malaysia and Singapore. But now she should just focus on India Super Series.” The 26-year-old turned up for All England Championship early this month but she lost in the quarterfinals to Tzu Ying Tai of Chinese Taipei. She also played at the Swiss Open but faced defeat against Wang Yihan in the semifinals. “At All England, actually there is a lot of pressure and tension when I approached the net and played at the back because such shots put a lot of pressure on my right leg. So I was scared it might happen again. I might get injured again. So it was difficult mentally,” Saina said. Asked if she was confident of defending her title at the India Open, Saina said: “If I am fit, I will definitely do well. There will always be pressure on you when you are the defending champion. “The conditions are different here then what it outside India. So unless I made errors, I should be able to pull out matches. I am back again. There were some things here and there which I worked on. I covered then well. So hoping for a good season ahead,” said Saina, who opens her campaign against Indias Tanvi Lad in womens singles tomorrow. More PTI ATK PDS PMadvertisementlast_img read more

Atletico Madrid oust Bayern Munich to reach Champions League final

first_imgAtletico Madrid reached the Champions League final on away goals on Tuesday after a 2-1 defeat at Bayern Munich, in which both sides missed a penalty, with the exhilarating tie finishing 2-2 on aggregate.Atletico will play in the showpiece match for the second time in three seasons against either city rivals Real Madrid, who beat them in the 2014 final, or Manchester City, with the second semi-final scheduled for the Bernabeu on Wednesday.Bayern’s exit ended their hopes of claiming a treble with Atletico going through to the May 28 final at the San Siro in Milan after winning the first leg 1-0 last week.The Bavarians went ahead with a Xabi Alonso free kick just past the half-hour and could have scored again three minutes later but Thomas Mueller’s penalty was saved by Jan Oblak.Atletico levelled through Frenchman Antoine Griezmann’s seventh goal of this season’s competition in the 54th, meaning Bayern would need at least two more goals to progress.Bayern’s Poland striker Robert Lewandowski set up a dramatic finale with his 74th minute goal before Atletico’s Fernando Torres had an 85th minute spot kick saved by Manuel Neuer.But it made no difference in the end as Bayern suffered a third straight elimination by a Spanish team at this stage in their three seasons under Pep Guardiola.”They were better, but we scored an away goal, which was important. We need to keep grounded and first of all think of the Liga before the final,” said Griezmann, whose side are level on points with leaders Barcelona in the Spanish title race.advertisement”Were delighted. It was difficult, a really hard game, we had a great opponent in front of us and we had to both defend and try to score. Thats what we did,” he added.BITTER PILLGuardiola, in his final Champions League home game at Bayern before his move to Manchester City for next season, started with defender Jerome Boateng, back from a three-month injury break on Saturday, and Franck Ribery, himself back from injury.With a newly-discovered intensity, the Bavarians were dominant in the first half, successfully navigating through the Spaniards’ high pressing game and grabbing their first chance with a Lewandowski header in the 12th minute.”We are a bit lost for words,” said Neuer. “We played great football today, did everything we set out to do but it is bitter not to be travelling to Milan for the final.”Atletico keeper Oblak was kept busy in the first half, with the tables turned and Bayern doing the pressing — having 12 shots compared to Atletico’s two by the half hour.Alonso finally got the hosts a deserved lead in the 31st minute, his low free kick clipping Atletico’s Jose Maria Gimenez to cancel out Atletico’s first-leg advantage.Bayern pushed for a second goal and thought they would have it when Javi Martinez was brought down by Gimenez in the box to earn a penalty three minutes later.But Oblak saved Mueller’s spot kick and Atletico stunned the home crowd after the break when Griezmann linked up with Torres and charged through to beat Neuer with a fine finish.With Bayern now on the backfoot and needing at least two more goals to advance, Atletico grew bolder and Juanfran’s shot on the hour sailed narrowly wide.Lewandowski put Bayern back in front on the night with a close-range header to spark a dramatic finale but they could not find another goal and their Champions League hopes were over.last_img read more

Garber inadvertently confirms Mexico’s hiring of Martino

first_imgMajor League Soccer commissioner Don Garber may have accidentally revealed one of international soccer’s worst-kept secrets by discussing rumors linking Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino to the Mexican national team.Martino is currently manager of Atlanta United and has helped build the club into one of the strongest in MLS.Atlanta is preparing to face the New York Red Bulls in the Eastern Conference finals as Martino prepares to leave the club after announcing that he would depart at the conclusion of the season before the playoffs kicked off.

Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! The former Barcelona and Argentina manager has been widely linked with the Mexico job, and Garber discussed that potential move while also speaking on the U.S. national team’s ongoing coaching search.”Good for the FMF. I’m very close friends with Enrique (Bonilla) and Yon de Luisa, and they were bold and they made a very aggressive move to get Tata who, by the way, before he came to MLS might not have been on the radar screen for the Mexican national team,” Garber said after serving on a panel alongside FMF leadership at SoccerEx in Miami.”So what does that say about success in Major League Soccer, something that we’ve been working hard to try and raise the profile of our league and what it can do to develop players and technical staff? “U.S. Soccer is in the midst of finalizing their decision on a U.S. national team coach. I’m sure he’ll be great. It’s possible he could be coming from Major League Soccer.

I want the best players and coaches in our league,” he said.”Tata has been a gift. He has brought a level of respect and credibility to our league through what he has done with Atlanta United that shows that we can be a league of choice.”But coaches come and go like players come and go.”I love Tata, I wish him well.  I was disappointed, in many ways heartbroken when they weren’t able to re-sign him.

West Indies, England bowlers bowl most number of wides in a Test match

first_imgWest Indies vs England 3rd Test in St Lucia entered the record books for an unwanted feat. The bowlers from either teams combined to bowl the most number of wide deliveries in a Test match. The Test match they surpassed also featured West Indies – In 2008 in Bridgetown, West Indian and Australian bowlers had combined to record 34 wides in a game of Test cricket.Kemar Roach bowled a wide in the fifth delivery of the first over of Day 4 of the Test match to equal the record with 34 wides. It was Roach’s second wide ball of the innings.In England’s bowling innings post that, Mark Wood bowled a wide to Shai Hope in the 14th over to surpass the record with 35 wides.India and South Africa feature heavily in the top six matches that recorded the most number of wides.The 2018’s Johannesburg Test between South Africa and India recorded 33 wide deliveries and is third on the list. The fourth match on the list is also a South Africa vs India Test and in Johannesburg too. In 2013, the Test match between these two teams saw a total of 31 wides being bowled.West Indies vs England, 3rd Test Day 4 in Gros Islet: Live Cricket ScoreFifth on the list is an India vs Pakistan Test, which happened in Faisalabad in 1989 and where 30 wides were bowled. 30 wide deliveries were also bowled in 2014’s Centurion Test between South Africa and Australia, completing the top six.Here is the break up of wide deliveries bowled in the Test match so far:advertisementEngland bowlers (2nd innings) – 1: Mark Wood (1)West Indies bowlers (2nd innings) – 8: Kemar Roach (2), Shannon Gabriel (5) and Roston Chase (1)England bowlers (1st innings) – 10: Mark Wood (5) and James Anderson (5)West Indies bowlers (1st innings) – 16: Kemar Roach (1), Shannon Gabriel (6), Alzarri Joseph (3) and Keemo Paul (6)The third Test has been full of drama. First it was about two West Indies’s players Keemo Paul and Darren Bravo getting injured. Then a major controversy erupted during the afternoon session, involving Joe Root and Gabriel.In a video circulating on social media, Root can be heard on the stump mic saying, “There is nothing wrong with being gay.”While it is unclear what Gabriel had told the two batsmen, Root said in the press conference after the day’s play, “Sometimes people say things on the field that they might regret, but they should stay on the field.”The Test started with a bit of controversy anyway when Jason Holder was banned by the ICC for over rate offence in the second Test, despite the match getting over in just three days.West Indies have already won the series after taking an unassailable 2-0 lead after the first two Tests.England declared their second innings at 361/5, setting West Indies the target of 485 runs.Also Read | Sanjay Manjrekar trolled for asking ICC to introspect on use of stump micslast_img read more

Hafeez then chipped in with the crucial wicket of England captain Eoin Morgan as Pakistan stopped England at 334 for 9 in 50 overs.Speaking after the game, Hafeez said the team never stopped believing in themselves during the second innings when Joe Root and Jos Buttler were going great guns during their 130-run partnership for the fifth wicket.Root (107) and Buttler (103) both scored hundreds but once they fell, the English batting collapsed with Wahab Riaz finishing with 3 wickets while Mohammad Amir and Shadab Khan picked up two apiece.”Everyone believed we can do this.

Fakhar and Imam started well. The match starts at 10.30pm and the first ten overs is important. They got a good start and that’s why we got 350. We tried a few different things – we started with Shadab because they weren’t good against spinners. Fielding is an important part and it was the main difference.

Richard Branson Makes Wish Come True

first_imgRichard Branson recently made a wish come true for a young boy in San Diego.“Thomas Edward has already gone through an awful lot in his 12 years, having survived leukaemia,” blogged Sir Richard. “The Make-A-Wish Foundation – who grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions – asked him what he wanted to do, he said he wanted to become a CEO.“When I was in San Diego recently, we managed to catch up, and Thomas told me how he is looking forward to becoming a successful businessman in the future – I have no doubt he will achieve his goals. He was inquisitive, attentive and asked smart questions – three skills every good CEO needs.“Young Thomas even asked me a question in front of more than 2,000 people. He said: ‘What do you value most in life – and why?’“My reply? Good health for my family and loved ones – in the end, health is everything.”Source:virgin.comlast_img read more

Elton John And Michael Stipe Write About Plight Of Transgender Inmates In

first_imgLast month, Elton John and musician, activist, and Elton John AIDS Foundation ally Michael Stipe, published an op-ed in the The Guardian about the horrific conditions faced by transgender people both inside and outside of prison, connecting their struggles with the larger effort to achieve equal rights for LGBT people everywhere.“There is a troubling lack of awareness in correctional facilities about the nuances of gender identity and the well-being of trans women inmates in male prisons,” they wrote. “All too often, transgender people are stripped of their dignity before they even step foot in prison. They are subject to discrimination, harassment and violence – leaving many in poverty, homelessness and without access to adequate healthcare. If we are going to raise awareness about issues facing transgender women inside prison, we must work in parallel by addressing these issues in our communities. As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”.“The cruelty and violence facing transgender people in our prisons is directly connected to the larger fight for equality for the LGBT community everywhere in America. To be sure, the despicably violent and discriminatory treatment of transgender prisoners must end. But so too must the broader violations of human dignity – behind bars and beyond them.”To read the full op-ed, click here.last_img read more

Natural gas fields give Israel a regional political boost

JERUSALEM — The discovery of natural gas fields off Israel’s coast along the Mediterranean Sea has given the country a geopolitical boost with its neighbours.It’s tightened relations with Arab allies and built new bridges in a historically hostile region — even without significant progress toward peace with the Palestinians.Last week’s inclusion of Israel into the Eastern Mediterranean Gas Forum in Cairo — a consortium aiming to cut infrastructure costs and lower prices — marked the first time Arab countries accepted the Jewish state into such a regional alliance, sparking excitement in Israel that its long-held hope of finally also making “economic peace” with Egypt and Jordan was fast approaching.The forum, which also includes Cyprus, Greece, Italy and the Palestinian Authority, aims to emerge as a mini-OPEC of sorts.Aron Heller, The Associated Press read more

UN drafts plan to improve maternal and child health through better nutrition

23 May 2011The United Nations World Health Organization (WHO) has drafted a plan committing Member States and development partners to implement priority nutrition interventions and policies on health care, education and agriculture to improve the health of mothers and their children. The measures, which will be included in a WHO report to be entitled Maternal, infant and young child nutrition: implementation plan, were discussed today at WHO’s ongoing 64th World Health Assembly (WHA) in Geneva.The draft plan outlines priorities to confront child under-nutrition, low birth weight, growing rates of child overweight, both maternal under-nutrition and overweight, and the consequences of vitamin and mineral deficiencies for mothers and children.More than 100 million children under the age of five were underweight in 2010, and at least 170 million were stunted, according to WHO figures. Micronutrient deficiencies, including anaemia and vitamin A, are of increasing concern worldwide. Some 43 million children were estimated to be overweight and obese in 2010. More mothers are becoming overweight, increasing the risk of birth complications.Countries need help to scale up effective actions to combat nutrition problems, said Francesco Branca, the director of WHO’s Nutrition for Health and Development department, at a news conference in Geneva.Malnutrition, in all its forms, impairs health, cognitive and physical development, reproductive health and immune systems. It threatens child and infant survival, according to WHO, which also noted that with growing rates of overweight in many middle- and low-income countries, non-communicable diseases, such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease, compromise health and are very difficult to treat with limited resources.Last year’s 63rd World Health Assembly had urged Member States to increase their political commitment to better nutrition and asked WHO to provide countries with support and strategic advice.The draft implementation plan for maternal, young child and infant nutrition was presented to Member States for their comments at the current Assembly as part of a two-year consultative process to finalize the measures.The draft plan was unveiled as Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon spotlighted the issue of maternal health during an official visit to Nigeria, touring a hospital and another health-care centre.Mr. Ban commended the Nigerian Government for its leadership in passing new laws designed to facilitate the provision of basic health care in the West African country.In a meeting with Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan in the capital, Abuja, Mr. Ban said he hoped other countries would follow the country’s example.At a separate meeting with Nigeria’s Presidential Committee on the Status of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the Secretary-General stressed that improving women’s and children’s health is one of the keys to progress.“Healthy women give birth to healthy children who can grow up to contribute to their healthy country. They are also the best guarantee of healthy, educated and prosperous families. That is why we must tackle the terrible loss of women’s and children’s lives in Nigeria,” said Mr. Ban.He also praised Nigerian plans to allocate a portion of its oil wealth to support health initiatives for women and children. “This is a ground-breaking initiative where success has far-reaching implications,” he added.The World Health Assembly is the decision-making body of WHO and brings together delegations from all Member States to determine the policies of the Organization and approve its proposed programme budget. read more

Military procurement officials hopeful years of troubles finally behind them

OTTAWA — For anyone hoping the Liberal government plans to blow up Canada’s much-maligned military procurement system, Patrick Finn has some advice: Don’t hold your breath.Finn is the Defence Department official responsible for overseeing $6 billion in annual spending that has been criticized far and wide in recent years over a perceived failure to deliver critical military equipment.The problems have been blamed on poor planning, red tape and internal bickering, which has tied up efforts to buy new aircraft, naval ships and other equipment.There were expectations that the Liberal government would finally start to unravel the problem with its new defence policy last month, which promised an extra $62 billion for the military over the next 20 years.But the policy made little mention of the procurement system, even though its proper functioning will be all the more critical if and when the promised new defence spending starts to flow.Finn, whose official title at National Defence is assistant deputy minister of materiel, believes that after a decade of hard-earned lessons, the system has finally turned a corner.Canadian officials can’t agree whether Super Hornet talks with Boeing are suspended or notDefence Minister Harjit Sajjan blasts Boeing in defence industry speech over trade spat with BombardierOttawa hints Boeing shouldn’t take military contracts for granted in trade spat with Bombardier“Do I think we’re on the right path? I do,” he said in an interview with The Canadian Press.“Do I think we’re at the end of that path? We’re not. Do I think we’re through all the growing pains? We’re not, but we’re a lot more mature than we were three, five, eight or 10 years ago.”The reference to 10 years ago is important.National Defence’s materiel section had only a handful of procurement specialists, many of whom were inexperienced, when the Harper Conservatives unveiled their own defence policy in 2008.Gutted in the 1990s, the section struggled to produce accurate cost estimates and schedules for the billions of dollars in new military equipment the Tories promised.Finn said many of the problems can be traced back to that shortage of staff and experience, and he acknowledged that having enough skilled personnel remains his top risk.His 4,200-strong workforce is in the process of adding 300 more staff by the end of next summer, he said, while many of his staff have the hard-earned experience to know what works, and what doesn’t.“The nature of the conversations that we’re having compared to 10 years ago, it’s kind of exciting because we’re really kind of getting into: ‘Be careful, we’ve done this over the years,”‘ Finn said.Another significant problem was the fact the Conservatives didn’t set aside enough money for their policy, which led to a merry-go-round of trying to match available funding to the military’s needs.Finn is hopeful that the Liberals’ defence policy, which the government says has been rigorously costed by six accounting firms, will finally fix that problem by acknowledging the real cost of different gear.One example: while the Conservatives said 15 warships would cost $26 billion, the Liberals say the actual price tag will be closer to $60 billion — the same number as reported by the parliamentary budget officer.Many critics of the military procurement system, including some of those who held Finn’s position before him, have also lamented what they see as an onerous amount of red tape and lack of accountability.The reason is that while the ultimate purpose of the system is to buy the gear the military needs, there are other interests as well, notably the desire to maximize economic benefits and competition. That means heavy involvement in the system by two other federal departments: Economic Development Canada and Public Services and Procurement Canada.Critics of the system have repeatedly asked the government to create one single department responsible for all military procurement. Finn said that isn’t on the radar right now.“Are we going to fundamentally change the authorities of ministers or are we going to smash it all together? Not at this point,” he said.“And I would caution to anybody: Be very careful. Because even just smashing that all together is probably going to distract us for a year or two while this kind of stuff sits on the backburner.”Finn’s optimism will soon be put to the test. The Liberal defence policy promises to spend tens of billions of dollars on 50 major military equipment purchases over the next 20 years.Those include the long-delayed purchase of new fighter jets and warships that are expensive, complex and politically sensitive, but absolutely necessary if Canada is to have a modern military.Finn noted many other projects previously tied up in the system are moving ahead or being delivered, such as new armoured vehicles for the army, Arctic patrol ships for the navy, and search-and-rescue planes.“It’s up to us now,” he said of his unit. “The government has done their part to kind of sign up to this, and we’re very seized departmentally.” read more

A Wall Street Journal article over the weekend, citing anonymous sources, said CP had made an overture to CSX last week, but was rebuffed. A combination of the two railways could create a US$62-billion railway capable of moving crude from North Dakota’s prolific oilfields to refineries on the U.S. Eastern Seaboard.

Apple wants to keep half of subscription revenue from its news service

first_img 2 Comments NurPhoto/Getty Images Major publishers aren’t too happy about Apple’s proposed financial terms for its subscription news service, according to a Tuesday report by The Wall Street Journal.The tech giant told some news organizations it’d keep around half the subscription revenue from the rumored service, according to people familiar with the matter, the Journal said. The news service, which comes after Apple bought Texture last year, will reportedly offer unlimited access to magazines and news outlets for a $9.99 monthly fee. It’ll be a premium product within Apple News, according to an earlier Bloomberg report. The service is rumored to launch later this year. The remaining revenue would be pooled and then divided among publishers depending on how much time users spend reading their stories, the people told the Journal. Major outlets including The New York Times and The Washington Post haven’t agreed to license their content to Apple’s news service partly because of concerns about the proposed terms, according to Tuesday’s report. The Journal said it also has concerns but has had productive conversations with Apple, according to the report. The New York Times declined to comment. The Washington Post didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. Some publishers are also reportedly concerned they likely won’t get access to subscriber data such as credit card information and email addresses, which can help news organizations build their customer databases. Apple declined to comment. First published Feb. 12 at 1:58 p.m. PT.Update, 3:43 p.m.: Adds that The New York Times declined to comment.

Judge grants new trial in death of intern Chandra Levy

first_img Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Prosecutors and lawyers for Guandique are scheduled to return to court next week and are expected to set a new trial date then.Levy’s 2001 disappearance created a national sensation after the 24-year-old California native was romantically linked with then-U.S. Rep. Gary Condit. Condit, a California Democrat, was ultimately ruled out as a suspect.In late 2013, Guandique’s lawyers requested a new trial after prosecutors brought to the judge issues with one of their key witnesses, Guandique’s one-time cellmate, Armando Morales.Morales testified that Guandique had confided in him that he was responsible for Levy’s death, and because there was no physical evidence linking Guandique to Levy’s murder, Morales provided some of the trial’s most powerful testimony. But Morales also testified that he didn’t know how to come forward with information to law enforcement when, in fact, he had previously provided information.Guandique’s lawyers argued that prosecutors knew or should have known that Morales’ testimony was problematic and investigated further. Guandique’s lawyers said Thursday they plan to ask for sanctions against prosecutors but did not specify in court what those might be. They also said they intend to argue that Guandique should be released on bond.

Don Shooter shows health improvement WASHINGTON (AP) — A judge on Thursday formally granted a retrial in the case of a man convicted of killing Washington intern Chandra Levy, a move that had been largely expected after prosecutors dropped their opposition to a retrial last month.D.C. Superior Court Judge Gerald Fisher on Thursday granted a motion for a new trial in the case of Ingmar Guandique, who was convicted in 2010 of killing Levy.Guandique’s attorneys had been pushing for a new trial because they said a key witness in the case gave false or misleading testimony. Prosecutors last month told a judge they believe the jury’s verdict was correct but that they would no longer oppose the new-trial request. Prosecutors said at the time that the “passage of time and the unique circumstances of this case” had made opposing a new trial more difficult.
