Orton later invoked his rematch clause for Money in the Bank on June 18, where Mahal defeated Orton once again. When Orton asked for a rematch once again, SmackDown organiser Shane McMahon granted Orton his wish on the condition that Mahal would choose the stipulation. Mahal chose the Punjabi Prison match and The Great Khali made a comeback to help Mahal retain his title.Mahal has had quite a journey on the show and remains unbeaten against John Cena even though he hasn’t beaten him either.IndiaToday.in caught up with the WWE Champion and Mahal spoke about his SummerSlam strategy, his wish to defend his WWE title on Indian soil and much more.The #ModernDayMaharaja @JinderMahal defends his title against @ShinsukeN THIS SUNDAY when #SummerSlam streams LIVE on @WWENetwork! pic.twitter.com/jZms7MaE91- WWE (@WWE) August 17, 2017Here are the excerpts:Q: How does it feel to still hold the WWE Championship after some intense matches?A: It’s a huge honour. I grew up idiolising the WWE superstars, wanting to be the WWE Champion. It’s a huge honour to be representing India, WWE and of course, my fans.advertisementHappy Independence Day India. Can’t think of a better way to celebrate than beating John Cena? https://t.co/ayUbHnnSAZ- The Maharaja (@JinderMahal) August 15, 2017Q: You beat Randy Orton yet again in the Punjabi Prison match and the involvement of The Great Khali was surprising. How did you manage to pull the rabbit out of the hat?A: See it’s like you choose the Punjabi Prison match and since it was my turn, I chose it because there is no disqualification, no count out. (chuckles) So I used the rules to my advantage. I called The Great Khali to watch my back and he came to help me and I won. Great Khali is like my older brother, we have a very close relationship and we talk all the time. He’s someone I get advice from and he was the World Heavyweight Champion and I admire him. He’s someone I aspire to be like and I want to follow in his footsteps.Q: You fought the 16-time world champion John Cena in this week’s SmackDown. How differently did you prepare for that match compared to a match against Orton?A: Yes I had the pleasure of taking John Cena last night (Tuesday) and it was definitely one of the biggest match of my career. I actually didn’t have much time to prepare because they announced the match just a day before so I did everything to think about. Even Corbin tried to cash on in and everything unexpected was happening but luckily I walked out still the WWE Champion and remained undefeated against John Cena. And yes I look forward to taking on John Cena again and ultimately beating him.Part II pic.twitter.com/Zg3TqOkWAP- The Maharaja (@JinderMahal) June 16, 2017Get a glimpse of the #ModernDayMaharaja training for my match at #WWEMITB , for when I retain my WWE Championship against @RandyOrton @WWE pic.twitter.com/MXeVg3SUPC- The Maharaja (@JinderMahal) June 15, 2017Q: What went through you when Baron Corbin cashed in on his Money on the Bank contract and you had to fight instantly to retain your Championship?A: I was really worried. For a while I didn’t know what was going on but when they announced that Corbin is cashing in on his Money in the Bank, I did panic a bit because I didn’t have the Singh Brothers on my side and I was worried that this was a very opportune time for Corbin while I was down. But fortunately for me I was able to hold on and since Corbin no longer holds that contract, it’s a huge relief for me.THIS. JUST. HAPPENED. #SDLive @BaronCorbinWWE @JinderMahal pic.twitter.com/S4PEy97NWv- WWE (@WWE) August 16, 2017Q: How do you plan to promote WWE in India through your Championship?A: First of all, I want to be an inspiration to our youth and tell them that through hard work, everything is achievable. Secondly, I want to bring the WWE Championship to India. I know that WWE is working really hard to announce a date shortly and once it’s finalised, I hope I can bring the WWE Championship to India and defend it on Indian soil.advertisementQ: So WWE is planning a match or an event in India?A: India is a very special part of the WWE Universe and so we really want to have an event there. WWE superstars were telling me about their experiences and how they can’t wait to go back there. I really want to go to India and I know WWE is working really hard to announce a date and once the date is announced, I hope I am still the WWE Champion.The celebration was on as #WWEChampion @JinderMahal and @SinghBrosWWE had a special surprise for India’s Independence Day! #SDLive pic.twitter.com/I84uGe7avM- WWE (@WWE) August 16, 2017Q: How do people look at Indian wrestlers in the WWE circuit?A: It’s great. It’s like we have wrestlers from all over the world. Like we have Shinsuke Nakamura from Japan, we have one from Bulgaria and Kevin Owens from Canada. WWE is truly a global entity, we travel all over the world, travel all these countries. It’s very diverse and I hope in the future WWE India also grows and I would love to see more Indians get signed and ultimately make their way up to RAW and SmackDown.Q: You also sang the Indian national anthem on Independence Day in America. How was that feeling?A: It was a very proud feeling, the lady singer did a wonderful job. And you know, we had my kind of celebration with bhangra dancers and for me, it was great.Q: SummerSlam is just round the corner. How are you preparing for your WWE Championship fight with Shinsuke Nakamura? What is going to be your strategy against him?A: My strategy is just to weather the storm. I know he’s very strong and he’s going to come with his strikes. He has very lethal precision with his strikes but there’s a reason I am the WWE Champion, my toughness and I can weather his storm. I will take his weakness when I find it and I also have the Singh brothers with me, they are my spirit that I walk out of the SummerSlam as the WWE Champion.Q: There are reports of WWE wanting to expand their fanbase in Japan as well which gives Nakamura an equal shot at the title. Your thoughts?A: Like I said earlier WWE is a global phenomenon and they want to expand all over the world. It’s not so much about the country but the performer. I started my career with WWE in 2011 and they didn’t just give me the WWE Championship or even the chance to contest for it. It is just now that I have worked hard to reach this level. I have proven to WWE and the WWE universe that I am worthy of the Championship, that’s when it happened. So it’s going to be me if I am good or if Nakamura is worthy, he’ll win. It’s not about the country we are from.advertisementQ: What is the inspiration behind your finishing move ‘Khallas’?A: The inspiration is actually my uncle Gama Singh, who is a former professional wrestler and used to play during the 1980s. His signature was the camel clutch with submission so I originally used the camel clutch hold but then I added my variation when I picked a guy up and slammed him down. So it’s a thing from my uncle but with my twist to it.last_img read more

On paper, France were the most balanced team before the start of the 2018 World Cup and they came to their elements during a 4-2 annihilation of Argentina in the round of 16.On Friday, France were the favourites despite Uruguay’s superior head-to-head record. After a drab opening half-an-hour, the game suddenly came to life as both sides tried to take the advantage ahead of the first whistle.The French took the lead in the 40th minute after Raphael Varane headed in into the net in the 40th minute.FIFA WORLD CUP 2018 FULL COVERAGE | FIXTURESHowever, it could have been a different story in the first half.Uruguay, without injured striker Edinson Cavani, had started full of running and were close to equalising with a great header by Martin Caceres.There was still a chance for Uruguay to stage a comeback in the second half but Fernando Muslera’s costly error put paid to the two-time world champions’ hopes.LATEST PICTURES FROM WORLD CUPAntoine Griezmann shot from the edge of the penalty and Muslera was unable to stop the ball from rolling over inside the net.

first_imgKolkata Knight Riders (KKR) skipper Dinesh Karthik’s leadership skills and own form will be keenly observed when his team takes on Rajasthan Royals in a must-win Indian Premier League (IPL) encounter for both outfits, at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Thursday.Karthik has a tally of 117 runs after 10 matches with only one 50. The World Cup call up has also failed to inspire the stumper-batsman who chose to go on a break to Mumbai after KKR’s fifth successive defeat at the hands of Sunrisers Hyderabad on the road.There have been talks about Karthik being removed as skipper even after head coach Jacques Kallis has put his weight behind the 33-year-old. The decision to send their best power hitter Andre Russell as low as No. 7 in the last few matches have only escalated the matter.Besides Karthik, vice-captain Robin Uthappa has been struggling with his own issues. While he has managed to score more runs than Karthik, 220 to be exact in nine matches but his strike rate of 119.56 has been a real cause of concern for the two-time champions.Uthappa wasted a lot of deliveries, which proved to be costly in their last home game against KKR. KKR fell 10 short of the 214-run target. He was dropped in their last game and so was Kuldeep Yadav who has failed to shine this season going for a lot of runs and failing to deceive the batsmen.In their remaining four games, KKR have to win all of them to qualify for the play-offs.advertisementComing to the visitors, Royals, placed seventh in the points and in need to win their remaining four matches in order to have any chance of qualifying for the playoffs, will be boosted by Ajinkya Rahane’s form. The India test specialist, removed from captaincy as Steve Smith took over, scored a magnificent hundred in their last game against Delhi Capitals.Royals lost the game but Rahane’s show was encouraging to say the least. Royals will be without Jos Buttler once again but for the last time will get the services of Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer, the latter being their key bowler along with spinneer Shreyas Gopal.Archer and Stokes will join the England squad for World Cup preparation with the deadline being April 26. Archer is not part of the 15-member contingent but has made it to the England limited-overs’ squad for the Pakistan ODI series.KKR, though, will draw confidence from their first leg meeting with Royals, where the two-time champions recorded a facile eight-wicket victory.Where will the IPL 2019 match between KKR vs RR be played?The IPL 2019 match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals will be played at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata from 8 PM IST.Where can I watch the IPL 2019 match between KKR vs RR live?The match will be shown on the Star Sports TV network and can also be streamed on hotstar.com.Where can I check the online live updates of the IPL 2019 match between KKR vs RR?You can follow our coverage here – www.indiatoday.in/sports/ipl-2019 & www.indiatoday.in/sports.What are the squads for the IPL 2019 match between KKR vs RR?Kolkata Knight Riders: Dinesh Karthik (Captain), Sunil Narine, Andre Russell, Carlos Brathwaite, Joe Denly, Lockie Ferguson, Chris Lynn, Robin Uthappa (wicket-keeper), Harry Gurney, Kuldeep Yadav, Piyush Chawla, Nitish Rana, Sandeep Warrier, K.C.

first_imgStory Highlights Minister Kellier said these persons are “promising jobs where none exists” Scammers have no approved registration with the Ministry and, as such, are operating illegally Labour and Social Security Minister, Hon. Derrick Kellier, is again warning the public to be aware of unscrupulous persons who are collecting money with the promise of job placement overseas.Minister Kellier said these persons are “promising jobs where none exists and where they have no connection to put anybody in any job anywhere.”He said the scammers have no approved registration with the Ministry and, as such, are operating illegally.“No one must hand over their passport to anybody outside of an approved agent or unless they are dealing directly with the Ministry of Labour and Social Security, to seek any form of employment overseas. Check with us before to see if (a) company is licensed to operate, to make sure that you do not give away your money and allow people to fleece you of your hard earned cash,” the Minister warned.He urged the public to report these unscrupulous persons so that appropriate action can be taken.Minister Kellier was speaking on August 8 during a meeting with representatives of Caribbean Airlines to formalise agreements between the airline and the Ministry for the transportation of Jamaican farm workers to the United States of America and Canada.In addressing the airline, Minister Kellier pointed out that service is critical to the survival of any business and that employers in North America want to know that when they make a request for workers, the Ministry can deliver. “We have to make sure that we get our workers there on time and in good shape,” he said.He thanked Caribbean Airlines for its service, noting that without its service, “we would not be able to find enough air transport to take our people abroad and to get the numbers that we currently have in North America.”The Minister informed that, currently, there are about 11,000 persons employed in the overseas work programme in the US and Canada.He also noted that the Ministry is working with the Canadian Government, through its High Commission, to iron out challenges relating to the issuance of visas for overseas workers. Mr. Kellier explained that, at times, workers either receive visas late or applications are declined. This, he said, has an impact on the airline as well as the employers who are expecting the workers. “We have no control locally over that problem. It is something between the Canadian Government and their local embassy here,” he said.He noted, however, that the Ministry will work with the Canadians “to work out some of the kinks in the system” in an effort to minimise the impact. Public urged to report these unscrupulous personslast_img read more

first_imgWith the launch of Chandrayaan-2 in the early hours of July 15, India is looking forward to being part of the elite group of three countries that have accomplished a soft landing on the moon. Chandtayaan-2’s lander Vikram will touch down on the lunar surface near the South Pole on September 6-7, 2019, bringing India at par with the US, Russia, and China. A soft landing is a considerate move that ensures the object is able to carry out further experimentation on the target planet or satellite, mostly with the help of a rover. The object is not destroyed upon the impact of landing, unlike in a hard landing. It is worth mentioning that this will not be the first time that any object launched by India will leave its imprint on the surface of the Earth’s only natural satellite. The country achieved hard landing on the lunar surface 11 years ago with Chandrayaan-1. As remarkable as this mission is going to be, in keeping with the tradition, ISRO Chairman K. Sivan on Saturday prayed at Tirumala temple for the success of the second moon mission. Sivan sought Lord Balaji’s blessings like his predecessors who used to worship at the hill shrine before every major space mission. Accompanied by some ISRO scientists, Sivan visited the temple along with a replica of Chandrayaan-2 to receive the “benign blessings of Almighty”. Additionally, he offered prayers at Sri Chengalamma temple in Sullurupet, near rocket port Sriharikota in Nellore district of Andhra Pradesh. The preparations for this have been going on smoothly and the aim of this mission is to bring forth information and revelations in the field of lunar science, besides demonstrating new technology for soft-landing. The challenges in the path of accomplishing this feat are several: nearly 3.844 lakh km distance between the earth and the moon have to be covered ensuring trajectory accuracy. Then comes the deep space communication link between the ISRO and the Chandrayaan-2; due to the distance, limited onboard power, radio signals will be weak with heavy background noise. The signals have to be picked up by large antennas. Chandrayaan-2 has to change the route from the earth orbit to moon orbit by firing onboard motors so that it is raised to reach the vicinity of the moon’s orbit. Since the moon’s location changes continually owing to orbital motion, the intersection of Chandrayaan-2 and the moon’s path will have to be predicted in advance and accurately. While this accomplishment is certainly one to be proud of, let us reflect on a critical thought that scientific feats can only be truly remarkable when a scientific temper is encouraged at large among citizens. The means to facilitate this democratic value is quality education and access to opportunities to maximum people. A sturdy social fabric is imperative for any grand accomplishment to be more meaningful. Efforts and resources that are invested to realise these aims ought to have an impact trickling down to the most common citizen. Quite literally, many are in the gutter but they are looking at the stars.last_img read more

first_imgAfter discussions with PETA, PVH Corp — the parent company of Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, IZOD, ARROW, Van Heusen, and other brands — has confirmed that it is banning and pulling from its shelves any products made with angora.The announcement follows the release of video footage — shot by a PETA Asia investigator in China, the source of 90 percent of the world’s angora fur — that shows workers violently ripping the fur from the bodies of screaming rabbits who have been tied by all four legs and stretched across a board or even suspended in the air.“By pulling all angora products from its international websites and shelves, PVH has done the right thing for animals and consumers,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “Angora production is cruel, and PETA urges all retailers to follow PVH’s example and show that cruelty to animals has no place in their stores.”PETA Asia’s investigator visited angora farms in China, where there are no penalties for animal abuse on rabbit farms and no standards that regulate the treatment of animals. The investigator documented rabbits, who are highly sensitive and social animals, lying in shock and isolation inside tiny, filthy wire-bottomed cages after having their fur ripped out. This process is repeated every three months for two to five years before the rabbits’ throats are slit and they are replaced by new rabbits who will suffer the same fate.PETA is pleased that other companies — including H&M, Topshop, Esprit, and others — have the halted production of angora products, but consumers are angry that these companies have not committed to banning them and have chosen to squeeze every last dime out of these rabbits by continuing to sell off their current stocks of cruelly produced angora. Companies that are truly committed to ethical and responsible business would act swiftly and with pride and remove any angora from their inventories, just as Perrier did when it pulled its water from shelves worldwide after some of it was thought to be contaminated. Other companies, such as Gap Inc., have failed to take any action whatsoever and will bear the brunt of their soon-to-be-ex-customers’ anger.Source:PETAlast_img read more

first_imgBEIJING, China – China announced a $3 billion list of U.S. goods for possible retaliation in a tariff dispute with President Donald Trump and girded Friday for a bigger battle over technology policy as financial markets sank on fears of global disruption.The Commerce Ministry said higher duties on pork, apples, steel pipe and other goods would offset Chinese losses due to Trump’s tariff hike on steel and aluminum imports. It urged Washington to negotiate a settlement but set no deadline.Trump said Friday that he was not concerned that the tariffs would be a drag on the stock market. He added: “China is going to end up treating us fairly.”In a separate and potentially bigger dispute, the ministry criticized Trump’s decision Thursday to approve a possible tariff hike on Chinese imports worth up to $60 billion over Beijing’s technology policy. It gave no indication of a possible response but a foreign ministry spokeswoman said Beijing was “fully prepared to defend” its interests.“We don’t want a trade war, but we are not afraid of it,” said the spokeswoman, Hua Chunying.On Wall Street, stocks were mixed Friday, but Asian financial markets sank on concern the escalating tensions might disrupt the biggest global trading relationship or lead other nations to raise import barriers.Tokyo’s benchmark tumbled by an unusually large 5.1 per cent while the Shanghai Composite Index closed down 3.4 per cent.The dollar dipped to 104.90 yen as investors shifted into the Japanese currency, which is viewed as a “safe haven” from risk.China’s response Friday appeared to be aimed at increasing domestic U.S. pressure on Trump by making clear which exporters, including farm areas that voted for him in 2016, might be hurt.“Beijing is extending an olive branch and urging the U.S. to resolve trade disputes through dialogue rather than tariffs,” said economist Vishnu Varathan of Mizuho Bank in a report. “Nevertheless, the first volley of shots and retaliatory response has been set off.”The list announced Friday was linked to Trump’s steel and aluminum tariffs , but companies already were looking ahead to a battle over complaints Beijing steals or forces companies to hand over technology.The tensions reflect the dueling nationalistic ambitions of Trump and his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping.U.S. efforts to boost exports of technology-based goods, begun under Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama, conflict with China’s plan for state-led development of global competitors in fields from robotics to electric cars. Foreign business groups complain Chinese regulators are trying to squeeze them out of promising industries.The Commerce Ministry announcement Friday made no mention of jetliners, soybeans or other products that are the biggest U.S. exports to China by value. That leaves Beijing room to take more drastic steps.Chinese officials are trying to figure out how to address U.S. concerns, said Jake Parker, vice-president for China operations of the U.S.-China Business Council, which represents American companies that do business with China.“Until the Trump administration articulates those concerns and how China can address them, it’s going to be very, very difficult for China to make those changes,” said Parker.Washington doesn’t believe it needs to give Chinese leaders another list of requests because they already know what the United States wants, said a senior U.S. official, who briefed reporters on condition he not be identified further. He said Trump and Xi agreed last year on a 100-day agenda of trade-liberalization measures but Beijing failed to act on about half of them.Instead, the Trump administration wants Chinese leaders to address more basic structural issues that interfere with market forces, said the official.The official cited Beijing’s “Made in China 2025” plan as “hugely problematic.” It calls for creating Chinese competitors in electric cars, robots, artificial intelligence and other fields. Business groups complain it will hamper or outright block foreign access to those industries.The latest proposed Chinese tariffs would add a 25 per cent charge on pork and aluminum scrap, mirroring Trump’s 25 per cent duty on steel, according to the Commerce Ministry. A second list of goods including wine, apples, ethanol and stainless steel pipe would be charged 15 per cent.Chinese purchases of those goods last year totalled $3 billion, the ministry said.The U.S. steel and aluminum tariffs also have irked Japan, America’s closest ally in Asia.“We have repeatedly told the U.S. side that steel and aluminum imports from its ally Japan will not adversely affect America’s national security, and that Japan should be excluded,” said Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga.China’s top economic official, Premier Li Keqiang, appealed to Washington on Tuesday to “act rationally” and said, “we don’t want to see a trade war.”The United States buys little Chinese steel or aluminum, but analysts have said Beijing would feel obligated to take action to avoid looking weak.Beijing reported a trade surplus of $275.8 billion with the United States last year, or two-thirds of its global total. Washington reports different figures that put the gap at a record $375.2 billion.Trump’s technology order is in response to “unfair and harmful acquisition of U.S. technology,” said a statement by the U.S. Trade Representative’s office. It said USTR would pursue a World Trade Organization case against Beijing’s “discriminatory technology licensing.”A USTR statement said possible measures include a 25 per cent tariff on Chinese-made aerospace, computer and information technology and machinery but gave no details.China is unlikely to respond until Washington acts but might launch an investigation of imports of U.S. corn and soybeans “as a warning shot,” said Parker. He noted Beijing began a probe of U.S. sorghum in February after Trump announced the steel and aluminum tariffs.On Tuesday, the Chinese premier promised at a news conference Beijing will “open even wider” to imports and investment as part of efforts to make its state-dominated economy more productive.Li said Beijing would “fully open” manufacturing, with “no mandatory requirement for technology transfers.” However, Chinese officials already insist companies aren’t required to hand over technology, so it was unclear how policy might change.___AP Writers Gillian Wong and researcher Yu Bing contributed.

Former Air Force Commander Roshan Goonetileke was questioned today on the the controversial MiG deal.Last week newspaper articles published with regard to the controversial deal were being collected as part of the investigation.The purchase of four MiG-27 aircraft in 2006 at a cost of US$ 2.462 million each and the procedure followed in relation to the purchase had been clouded in mystery.The Sri Lanka Air Force (SLAF) on behalf of the Government signed an agreement with Ukrinmash (a Ukranian company) for the supply of four MIG-27 aircraft as well as the overhauling of four existing SLAF MiG-27 aircraft. However the Colombo Fort Magistrate’s court rejected the request. Since last year Weeratunga claimed he was living in Ukraine and refused to return to Sri Lanka. (Colombo Gazette) Current Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera and Sripathi Sooriyaarachchi, two key ministers, who broke away from the then Mahinda Rajapaksa led government, filed a complaint later with the Bribery Commission alleging corruption in the deal. In July this year the FCID sought a court order to get INTERPOL assistance to arrest Sri Lanka’s former Ambassador to Russia, Udayanga Weeratunga as part of investigations over the deal. read more

This year, the tournament will have at least one undefeated team: Princeton, which finished its regular season 30-0 with a 55-42 win over Penn on Tuesday.Most of the prior 14 teams to enter the tournament undefeated had far better pedigrees. Ten were ranked No. 1 entering the tournament, and eight left the tournament as undefeated champions. The only reason last year’s Notre Dame team didn’t enter the tournament as No. 1 or exit it as undefeated champ was that it faced another undefeated team in the final: UConn.Unlike UConn and Notre Dame last season, which were the clear top-two teams entering the tournament, Princeton won’t even be favored to advance from its region. None of its wins came against teams now ranked in the Top 25. Its conference schedule was a breeze: Penn was the only other Ivy League team with a winning conference record, and just Cornell joined Princeton and Penn with a winning overall record.Princeton’s nonconference schedule wasn’t all that hard, either. After Tuesday’s regular-season finale, senior guard Blake Dietrick said she started thinking 30-0 was possible when the Tigers beat Michigan by 30 in Ann Arbor. Dietrick called the December game “a monumental win for us against a nonconference team.” But Michigan finished 16-14, with a losing record in the Big Ten. Princeton is ranked 13th in the country, behind five teams with five or more losses.Princeton is more similar historically to three undefeated teams in the 1990s that were seeded No. 8 or worse and lost in the first round: Vermont in 1992 and 1993, and 1998 Liberty, which was knocked out by fellow undefeated team Tennessee. But Princeton will probably do better than those three teams did — it likely will be ranked higher in the final pre-tournament AP poll, and it has a greater margin of victory.Finishing in first isn’t the highest-priority goal for Princeton, which mainly wants to become the first Ivy League team since Harvard to win a game in the tournament. “That is No. 1 on our list right now, second is finishing my thesis,” Dietrick said. “It’s the thing I want to do most in the world, most in my life.”Below is each undefeated women team’s record, ranking and seed entering the NCAA tournament, along with how it finished, courtesy of ESPN Stats & Info: 1998LibertyBig South28-0—18.3161st round 2014Notre DameACC32-0225.61Finalist 2015PrincetonIvy30-013*24.9—— 2009ConnecticutBig East33-0131.51Champion 1992VermontAmerica East29-02521.991st round 2002ConnecticutBig East33-0137.01Champion 1998TennesseeSEC33-0131.11Champion 1986TexasSouthwest29-0127.41Champion 2014ConnecticutAmerican Ath.34-0135.71Champion 1990Louisiana TechAmerican So.29-0135.21Final Four read more

(AP) — California Gov. Gavin Newsom moved Friday to bypass environmental regulations to prepare for the next wildfire season, a move he said was necessary to prevent further loss of life even as it frustrated activists in a state viewed as a national environmental leader.“The increasing wildfire risks we face as a state mean we simply can’t wait until a fire starts in order to start deploying emergency resources,” Newsom said in a statement ahead of declaring a state of emergency.California experienced two of its most destructive and deadly wildfire seasons in 2017 and 2018 and experts say climate change increases the risks. Newsom said clearing dead trees at a quick pace is essential to diminishing future threats. President Donald Trump has blamedCalifornia fires on poor forest management, though experts say climate change caused by people is more of a factor.Newsom is taking recommendations from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, but one environmental group likened it to actions by Trump.“Gov. Newsom should reject the Trump approach of logging and rolling back critical environmental protections,” said Shaye Wolf, climate science director for the Center for Biological Diversity.Newsom also pledged $50 million for fire preparedness in low-income communities and asked the private sector to bring forward innovative proposals.The center and other environmental groups said focusing on retrofitting and creating defensible space around homes is more effective than thinning forests. Sierra Club California said clearing trees might create more danger by loosening soil that could lead to mudslides.Newsom’s order will apply only to 35 projects covering nearly 141 square miles (365 square kilometers) of land, allowing state fire officials to go around multiple state regulations. They include provisions of the California Environmental Quality Act, one of the nation’s strictest state-level regulations. Administration officials would need to give the go ahead to each individual project and it’s unclear exactly which regulations each individual project would forego.Newsom said moving through the normal process would drastically slow down the state’s ability to act.“Some of these projects quite literally, not figuratively, could take two years to get done, or we could get them done in the next two months,” he told an audience in Lake County, the site of several massive wildfires in recent years.The union representing state firefighters praised Newsom’s plan.“These circumstances are unusual, unpredictable, unseen in our lifetime, and courageous decisions that sometimes go against the political winds need to be made,” said Tim Edwards, president of CAL Fire Local 2881.Republican state Sen. Pat Bates also praised Newsom for acting with urgency ahead of the wildfire season.“I stand ready to assist the Governor with any legislative action to eliminate bureaucratic roadblocks that could slow these projects,” she said in a statement.While environmental groups bristled at Newsom’s plan, they still align with him on a wide range of issues. Newsom’s predecessor, fellow Democrat Jerry Brown, was known globally for his fight against climate change but still clashed with environmental groups at home on some issues.California has set a goal, for example, of getting 100 percent of its energy from carbon-free sources by 2045, and passed a landmark cap-and-trade law to decrease emissions.“On the whole we see (Newsom) as an ally on environmental issues. I think what we’re disagreeing with here is an approach to a problem that we all recognize,” said Kathryn Phillips, director of Sierra Club California.The state’s environmental laws are designed to protect California’s soil stability, watershed and wildlife habitats, she said, and waiving environmental reviews could have unintended consequences.“For some suspension of oversight now, what’s the consequence going to be later?” she said. “Are we going to end up having huge silt floods and mudslides?”Beyond accelerating tree clearing, Newsom put out a “request for innovative ideas” from the private sector to help fight California fires. He said he wants to tap into Silicon Valley and California’s spirit of creativity to come up with solutions to reduce wildfire threats.

first_imgTwitterIndia are going into the semi-final and which team they are going to play will be decided after the completion of the match between South Africa and Australia. But after the end of their last bowling innings before the semis, against Sri Lanka, there is one big question looming over the Virat Kohli-led side. Who will be the spinner or spinners in the Indian playing XI when they play the knockout match.The partnership of Yuzvendrda Chahal and Ravindra Jadeja had been performing brilliantly till the game against England where both wrist spinners got ravaged by the combination of Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow. This prompted India to drop Kuldeep, though he managed to register a good comeback later on in the match, for the game against Bangladesh. For the match against Sri Lanka, Yadav was back and Chahal out with Ravindra Jadeja getting a go.Jaddu performed brilliantly in the match, thereby making himself a big contender for playing in the semi-final. Kuldeep, on the other hand, proved expensive. So, who is it going to be? Will India play one spinner or two? Both these questions would trouble the team management. Let’s look at each of the three contenders closely and analyse their prospects. Matt King/Getty ImagesRavindra JadejaThe most experienced of the three, Jadeja is also the most accurate bowler among them. India can rely on him to bowl a tight line and length and not give away too many runs. If there is turn in the wicket, his pace and trajectory may make things harder for the batsmen. However, some batsmen have tried counter-attacking him and have succeeded. Since he is a flat and quick bowler, if the pitch is not spinning, good batsmen would figure out a way to deal with him easily. He doesn’t quite have the flight and guile which Kuldeep and Chahal posess. Stu Forster/Getty ImagesKuldeep YadavA bowler of high-quality, Kuldeep has bowled some of the best spells of this tournament. He has two great qualities. One, he has got a great bag of tricks, like the chinaman googly, that can confuse the batsmen. Two, he has the traditional quality of beating the batsman in the flight and use subtle variations of pace and line to good effect. Even if the pitch is not spinning, he can use his class to great effect. However, having missed a game against Bangladesh, he may be lacking confidence and his lack of success against Sri Lanka may strengthen the case against him. GIANLUIGI GUERCIA/AFP/Getty ImagesYuzvendra ChahalAnother bowler with a great box of tricks, Chahal can fool any batsman with his googly. However, his weakness has been lack of consistency. He has had many great matches as well as some really bad ones. While Kuldeep has shown the ability to make a comeback after going for runs, Chahal seems to struggle. He doesn’t seem to have the same mastery of the old-fashioned qualities of spin bowling like using variations of flight to deceive the batsman as Kuldeep. However, when he is in song, Kuldeep can take on the best batting line-ups.last_img read more

Environmental groups, petrochemical engineers, and community leaders are considering how the Houston region handles man-made disasters like the massive fire at ITC’s plant in Deer Park.Ramanan Krishnamoorti, a professor at the University of Houston’s College of Engineering, spoke on Houston Matters on Wednesday and said the ongoing growth of the petrochemical industry in Houston and the Gulf Coast region justifies being vigilant. “What we need to think about is ‘Where are the challenges going to be tomorrow?’ with all of these pipelines being put down, with all the storage issues that are going to be there,” Krishnamoorti said.Krishnamoorti also said authorities should consider whether air quality monitoring should be done with airplanes, as well as remote sensors and robots, in addition to devices that are used at the ground level.“Ground base monitoring is wonderful for surface leaks and leaks that happen close to the ground,” he said, “but for some of these larger fire-based and significant sort of event-based leaks you’re going to need very different monitoring schedules.”Regional and local officials didn’t issue an emergency alert for air pollution because the chemical releases were carried to an altitude of approximately 4,000 feet. Ground level air monitors showed normal to moderate air quality readings. That’s a point Harris County and Houston leaders repeatedly emphasized.Krishnamoorti said the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) should determine how to make air quality monitoring more efficient and effective. 00:00 /19:32center_img X David J.

Similarly, those who had passed out from the college in 2011 and before can get urgent copies by paying Rs 500 and Rs 300 to get certificates by usual course. The certificates are required by those who have got government or private sector jobs. As graduation certificates are not issued by the Calcutta University along with the mark sheet, many students do not take the certificates. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeHowever, as the original certificates are required to be produced at the time of interviews, students run from the pillar to post to get their graduation certificates from colleges where used to study many years ago.Taking advantage of the situation, the college authorities decided to issue them against a payment.The matter created a flutter among the former students and the authorities withdrew the order on Monday evening. The matter has been brought to the notice of Partha Chatterjee, state Education minister, who is looking into the matter.last_img read more

first_img12:06 left in second quarterThe Jets got inside the red zone but then went backwards, with a holding penalty wiping out a good run and then nothing much after that. Nick Folk came on and hit a 39-yard field goal to get New York on the board, and now the score is 7-3, Cardinals.13:52 left in second quarterJets are moving after Patrick Peterson was called for pass interference on third down, which was unfortunate for Arizona because the pass was going to be incomplete. Then Peterson can’t keep up with Brandon Marshall, who picks up 36 yards on the passing play to get into Arizona territory.End of first quarterThe first frame ends with the Jets picking up a couple of yards. The score is 7-0, and though Arizona is in control, it feels like they should be up more. Defense has done very well, though the offense — save for a big run — has not been sharp.:17 left in first quarterNothing doing for the Cardinals there, as they go three-and-out. On third down, Palmer tried to force the ball to Jaron Brown but the pass was batted away. It looked like Palmer may have had David Johnson open in the flat on the other side of the field, but he never looked that way. Anyway, Jets take over at their 21. An incomplete pass on third down that was nowhere near any receiver leads to a punt, which is downed at the Arizona four. That should do it for the half, and the Cardinals lead 14-3 at the break.:19 left in second quarterA deep ball to Robby Anderson is way too deep, and now it’s 3rd and 15 (there was a false start before the play) has the Jets in a rough spot at the Arizona 44.:24 left in second quarterYep, incomplete. Jets at the Arizona 39.:09 left in second quarterPlay is under review after what may have been a fumble is probably going to be turned into an incomplete pass. Fitzpatrick tried to shovel it away, but had it batted down by Robert Nkemdiche. I believe it was ruled a fumble (recovered by the Jets) on the field, but should end up being an incomplete pass.:49 left in second quarterAnd just like that, the Jets are moving. Passes to Charone Peake and Marshall have them at the 50, and with one timeout left have enough time to do some damage. Arizona’s defense isn’t exactly on its heels, but has also not offered up much resistance here.1:23 left in second quarterCardinals got a first down on a nice Palmer throw to Jermaine Gresham, but went nowhere after that. Quigley comes in and gets off a 42-yard punt, and Jets take over at their 20. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Arizona Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer (3) warms up prior to an NFL football game against the New York Jets, Monday, Oct. 17, 2016, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Rick Scuteri) Kickoff is a touchback and Jets will begin at their 25. Arizona’s defense could use a stop after allowing points last time out.6:43 left in second quarterThe Cards got the first with a David Johnson run up the middle, and after a first-down pass was incomplete on second down Johson ran through a big hole right up the gut for his second touchdown of the night. The PAT is good, and the 11-play, 75-yard drive comes at a good time for the Cardinals, who are now up 14-3.8:04 left in second quarterCardinals are moving the ball courtesy of a timely third-down conversion to JJ Nelson, a reverse from Nelson and a bubble screen to him. There was also a pass interference on a pass to John Brown, though that looked like a very questionable call. As it stands, the Cardinals have a third-and-1 from the New York four.11:24 left in second quarterA one-yard David Johnson run was followed by an overthrown (and out of bounds) deep pass to Fitzgerald, and now the Cardinals are facing a 3rd-and-9 from their 26. This would not be an ideal time to have a three-and-out, after the Jets just scored.Still 12:06 left in second quarterThe kickoff goes for a touchback and the offense takes over at the 25. The Cardinals have shown flashes, just as they have all season, but have yet to truly look good. Ryan Quigley’s punt is downed at the New York 9.15:00 left in first quarterKickoff goes for a touchback and Cards begin at their 25. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling And, apropos of nothing, today is my birthday. Incidentally, it is the second time in the last four years the Cardinals have played a game on my birthday, but neither game was on a Sunday.With all that said, the Cardinals won the toss and elected to receive. Here we go.End of gameCardinals run out the clock and this one is over. Arizona wins 28-3, evens record up at 3-3 and prepares for a Sunday night showdown with the Seattle Seahawks.Time to head down to what should be a happy locker room, though we’ll find out the status of Palmer (hamstring) and Jaron Brown (not sure).2:00 left in fourth quarterThe Cardinals are sticking to the ground game with Ellington getting the work. It is now 2nd-and-10 from the New York 37.3:24 left in fourth quarterAfter a short Ellington run Stanton drops back to pass, and his through is batted in the air before being corralled by Jaron Brown. Unfortunately, Brown landed awkwardly and remained on the ground for a while, before needing help to get off the field. Looked like they were looking at his knee.4:20 left in fourth quarterJets moved the ball down the field but an Alex Okafor strip sack led to the Jets facing a 4th-and-11, and Smith’s pass is picked off by Tyrann Mathieu. Mathieu raced down the field deep into Jets territory, but he was ruled to have stepped out of bounds at the Arizona 40. So, Cardinals take over with Drew Stanton at QB, as it was announced that Carson Palmer was “questionable” to return with a hamstring strain. 5:45 left in third quarterDavid Johnson runs to the New york three and then on first down picks up a yard, though it looked like he had a different cut and a path to the end zone.7:54 left in third quarterPenalties for everyone on this drive, but the Cardinals are currently at the New York 15 with a first down. Palmer has looked pretty sharp of late.10:30 left in third quarterCardinals are on the move. Michael Floyd drew a pass interference on third-down play, and after a few more plays (a first-down to Jaron Brown, a nice David Johnson run) the Cardinals have it at the New York 38.13:01 left in third quarterCardinals force a three-and-out and get the ball back at their own 32 after a one-yard return. Arizona’s offense wasn’t lights out in the first half, but is really just one or two more scores away from seemingly putting this one to bed. The defense has come to play, now the offense needs to pick it up.The Jets came into the game with a shoddy pass defense to go along with a solid run defense. So far, the Cardinals have yet to exploit the former.15:00 left in third quarterKickoff sails out of the end zone and Jets begin at their own 25.:04 left in second quarter Top Stories center_img GLENDALE, Ariz. — After a long break the Cardinals are finally back in action at University of Phoenix Stadium, as they host the New York Jets in a Monday night matchup.It’s a big game for both teams — the Jets, at 1-4, are struggling to keep their season afloat, whereas the Cardinals, at 2-3, can ill afford to drop another home game, especially to a lesser team.Among the storylines are the return of Todd Bowles, who was the defensive coordinator in Arizona for two seasons before becoming the head coach in New York, as well as the return to the field for Carson Palmer, who missed last week’s game against the 49ers with a concussion. Still 8:20 left in fourth quarterJets take over at their own 25 with Geno Smith now in the game at quarterback.8:20 left in fourth quarterRuling on the field stands, and with the PAT the score is 28-3.8:57 left in fourth quarterPalmer gets crushed on a couple of passing plays, but comes back on third down and finds John Brown for a nice gain and a first. After a short David Johnson run an end-around with JJ Nelson nets nine yards, and the Cardinals are at the nine. Arizona must have seen something on film there, because they’ve run that a couple times today. On next play Palmer throws a really nice ball to Michael Floyd in the corner of the end zone. Yes, Michael Floyd is still here, and apparently Palmer is still very capable of getting the ball to him.Play is under review, though, and it’s going to be close.10:36 left in fourth quarterCardinals moving the ball well with Palmer consistently finding John Brown on out routes. On this drive alone, he has found Brown for nine, 12 and 13 yards. Not deep balls, but looking like last year in that the receiver is open and the ball, on a timing route, is right on the money.Cardinals are at the Jets 33 and going for the kill. 7 Comments   Share   9:51 left in first quarterAnd just like that, points! David Johnson took a handoff to the left, made some moves, got some blocks, and 58-yards later punched it in. The PAT was good, and the Cardinals are up 7-0. The Jets came in known to be good at stopping the run, but if the Cardinals can do that, well, New York could be in trouble.10:03 left in first quarterOn first down Josh Mauro burst through the line and tackled Matt Forte for a four-yard loss, and after that the series was all Cardinals. The defense forced a three-and-out, and the punt was fair caught inside Jets territory but the ball was moved back to the Arizona 42 after an illegal block in the back by Brittan Golden. Tough penalty wipes out great field position, and instead leaves Arizona with very good field position.Note: the Cardinals have yet to score any points in the first quarter this season. Will this be THE drive?12:12 left in first quarterCardinals picked up a first down after a quick pass to Darren Fells was followed by a short David Johnson run, which was good. However, on the next play the snap was fumbled, and though the Cardianls recovered with a loss of two yards, it set the drive back because a 10-yard pass to Larry Fitzgerald on the next play was not enough for a first, and on third and short Palmer’s pass to Johnson was short of the running back. Couldn’t tell if Palmer was grabbed by a defender or not as he threw it — I hope he was, because if not it was just a really bad throw. End of third quarterA David Johnson run goes for four yards and the quarter ends with the Cardinals up 21-3.:46 left in third quarterFacing a 3rd-and-7, Fitzpatrick throws into the end zone and is picked off by Swearinger, who returns the ball to the 11. Pressure from Markus Golden helped force the errant throw, and the Cardinals turn the Jets away again.2:25 left in third quarterJets have moved into Arizona territory as Fitzpatrick and the Jets have tried a novel thing in completing passes. On one incomplete ball, D.J. Swearinger just drilled Jets receiver Charone Peak. Following the play, Tyrann Mathieu was flagged for delay of game (he ran with the ball thinking it was a fumble but then threw it after it was ruled incomplete). The Jets have it 2nd-and-5 from the Arizona 28.Still 5:24 left in third quarterKickoff sails out of the end zone and the Jets, reeling, take over at their 25. Arizona’s defense was built to play with a lead, and now they have one and are facing an offense that hasn’t shown much in the way of ability.5:24 left in third quarterCardinals did not get cute in that series, as on second down they again handed it to Johnson, who found a hole and punched it in for the third time tonight. The PAT was good, and the Cardinals are up 21-3. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact 1:50 left in first quarterDefense gets the job done with help of a good pass rush. Jets are struggling to handle Arizona’s front. Punt sets the Cardinals up at their own 32, and Michael Floyd is finally in the game.3:30 left in first quarterThe drive showed promise but stalled once the Jets stopped committing penalties and Larry Fitzgerald dropped a pass. Yeah, he did. Anyway, Quigley’s punt is fair caught at the Jets 12 and once again New York starts with rough field position. Arizona’s defense got a three-and-out the last time the Jets were backed up, which set up a score. Can the D do it again?4:59 left in first quarterCardinals are moving after a nice gain from Fitzgerald was followed by a short run and a third down play that turned into a first down after Fitz was held. From near midfield, the Cardinals caught the Jets jumping offsides and Palmer went deep to JJ Nelson, who nearly came down with a great catch. Anyway, the Cardinals have it first and five at their own 48.7:18 left in first quarterThe Jets picked up a first down on a pass to Brandon Marshall but then went backwards with a pair of false starts. Finally getting a playoff, Fitzpatrick was drilled by Chandler Jones and Markus Golden while throwing incomplete. A short run was followed by another incomplete pass, and the punt is fielded by John Brown and returned to the Arizona 24. 2:00 left in second quarterA hold on Larry Fitzgerald negated a short Johnson run, though the next play saw a quick pass to Jaron Brown go for 10 yards. So, it is 2nd-and-5 from the Arizona 15. With that much time left in the half and a pair of timeouts, you figure the Cardinals are thinking points right now. Of course, with a decent lead and this deep in your territory, the last thing you want to do is take an unnecessary risk.Being in second-and-short here helps.2:41 left in second quarterCardinals force a three-and-out, barely, and the punt is fair caught at the Arizona 20. Justin Bethel was flagged for holding on the non-return, though, and now the offense takes over at its 10.4:06 left in second quarterNot much going for the offense there, with a dump off to Johnson being the only thing that wasn’t bad. Punt is fair caught at the New York 22.5:39 left in second quarterCardinals got their three-and-out, and the punt is shanked for just 30 yards. Cardinals take over at their own 34, and with a good drive (build off last drive’s success) could instill much confidence in not only their abilities, but chances of winning this game.Still 6:43 left in second quarterlast_img read more
