Unwell Tendulkar misses two sessions at Lord’s

first_imgIndia’s batting maestro great Sachin Tendulkar, who missed out on his 100th international Test century at Lord’s on Saturday missed the first two sessions on Sunday.He has been diagnosed with a viral infection. A Team India statement issued on Sunday said: “Mr Sachin Tendulkar has a viral infection and is resting under medical advice and would take the field later in the day after further medical assessment.”Tendulkar took the field only at the final session. Because of his long absence from the field, he will not be able to bat in his usual number four slot. He will bat at only number seven, that is after the fall of the fifth wicket.On Sunday, he batted with a running fever in India’s first innings and left the ground for team hotel soon after he was out for 34. It was learnt that he took antibiotics because of the viral infection.Tendulkar’s latest bid to score his 100th international hundred ended in disappointment as England maintained their grip on the opening match of a four-Test series.The 38-year-old batting star had played some trademark classic shots before he was caught at second slip by Graeme Swann off Stuart Broad, who led England’s attack with four wickets for 37 runs. India were bowled out for 286, featuring Rahul Dravid’s unbeaten 103, in reply to England’s first innings 474 for eight declared – a deficit of 188.last_img read more

My moves on chess board matter more than anything else: Vishwanathan Anand

first_imgFormer World Chess champion Viswanathan Anand said on Monday that the moves he executes on the board matter more than anything else to him.”In chess there is one fundamental truth, it doesn’t matter what the truth is, it matters what you execute on the board. In chess you get rewarded what you do on the board in those two hours, not what you do before that and what you do after that,” Anand said here.”It doesn’t matter what you think after you make the move. It is a much specialised thing. After playing for some time you will get to know what you are good at and what you are not and you are the best judge of that. It is important to have respect on yourself that makes your game much easier,” he said.The 45-year-old Grandmaster said teamwork in his game is a vital part.”The most important quality of a team is to understand how you feel and to create a comfortable atmosphere. I would prefer to work with people whom I can get along with well, that refers to my team,” the Padma Vibhushan award winner said.”If you feel positive and carry that into the match and training, then your work will be more productive. I work a lot with my trainers, team management. You learn a lot from them also as you go along,” Anand added.The Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award winner believes the most important thing to have is trust between a trainer and a trainee.advertisement”The most important thing is trust. Before a game my trainer gives me few tips and pushes me to execute it on the board. I have to have that trust in him that he has put in hours to help me be a better player than my opponent,” he said.When asked the way he selects his trainer and management, he said, “I pick people with whom I get along, which is a fundamental quality. You also have to look for Chess players. I will look for people who have plotted gaps in my game, also point out thing that I do well and which don’t do well. It is important to be good friends to be a good trainer and learner.”last_img read more

CAC Says Consumer Protection Act to be Updated

first_imgChief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Consumer Affairs Commission (CAC), Dolsie Allen, says the Consumer Protection Act is due to be updated.Speaking at a recent JIS ‘Think Tank’, Mrs. Allen said that in recent times there has been an increase in new consumer purchasing trends ranging from body enhancement services to online social media shopping.“As we speak, a review is being done on the clauses in our Consumer Protection Act, and we are going to be moving towards some level of amendment to the Act,” Mrs. Allen said.She noted that the CARICOM ‘Model Consumer Protection Bill’ speaks to e-commerce and product safety, which should be included in the Jamaica Consumer Protection Act.Meanwhile, Senior Public Relations Specialist at the CAC, Dorothy Campbell, said the consumer protection guidelines under the United Nations (UN) have broadened the scope of the Commission’s duties.“Our duties are no longer simply on a reactive basis, where we seek protection for consumers after they’ve made a complaint. We work very closely with regulatory bodies to make sure consumers are protected, not after the fact. We try to be proactive,” Ms. Campbell told JIS News.last_img read more

Ban Kimoon reports steady progress towards deploying hybrid force in Darfur

5 September 2007The United Nations is making “steady progress” towards setting up its landmark hybrid peacekeeping force in Darfur with the African Union (AU), but complex logistical challenges lie ahead and Member States need to provide military contributions before further benchmarks for deployment can be met, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s latest report on the mission says. The report on the deployment of the force, known as UNAMID, notes that the UN and AU have established a multidisciplinary transition team in El Fasher, the capital of North Darfur state and the future headquarters of the mission. The team has already begun implementing deployment plans on the ground.But given the nature of Darfur, a vast, impoverished and remote region on Sudan’s western flank, “enormously complex logistical operations” are still necessary before deployment, Mr. Ban writes.The construction of safe accommodation and office facilities for UNAMID staff that meet UN safety standards will be critical, he states, adding that so too will be the transfer of equipment and assets from the existing AU mission in Darfur, known as AMIS.Mr. Ban stresses that UN Member States must now step up and urgently provide the outstanding military contributions that are necessary for UNAMID to fulfil its mandate.The Security Council authorized the creation of UNAMID on 31 July in a resolution that called for a force of nearly 20,000 military personnel and more than 6,000 police officers. It will be the largest peacekeeping force in the world.The force is being sent in to try to quell the violence in Darfur, where more than 200,000 people have been killed and 2.2 million others forced to leave their homes since 2003 because of fighting among rebel groups, Government forces and allied militia known as the Janjaweed.Violence has erupted again in recent weeks, and in his report Mr. Ban voices deep concern about the deadly clashes between tribes in South Darfur state, attacks against local police in South Darfur and Government attacks against villages in North Darfur and South Darfur, all in the past month.The Secretary-General also calls on the Sudanese Government to facilitate expeditious land acquisitions so that UNAMID can construct staff accommodation and to ensure smooth visa arrangements for visits of delegations from UNAMID troop and police contributors.Last month, a three-day joint planning session of the UN and AU concluded that it is vital “to create an early and visible improvement in the security situation in Darfur” as authority transfers from AMIS to UNAMID to ensure that public confidence in the new mission is enhanced from the start.To achieve that, the UN and AU have agreed to deploy an early-effect capability in Darfur ahead of the transfer of authority date of 1 January next year. The capability will include one infantry battalion, four reserve companies, up to 60 liaison officers and military aviation resources, as well as one formed police unit and 40 individual police officers. read more

We need more diplomacy more negotiating Brazilian President tells UN Assembly

“Brazil was among the drafters of the Treaty. It will be a historical moment,” President Michel Temer said. “We must acknowledge that there are still issues in the agenda of peace and security that give rise to serious apprehension,” he added, noting the recent nuclear and missile tests on the Korean Peninsula, which Brazil condemns “with the utmost vehemence.” In an address that covered a wide range of issues, including trade, development, conflicts and the refugee crisis, Mr. Temer told the Assembly that while Organization’s aspirations have not been entirely fulfilled, the UN has represented the prospect for a more just world – one of peace and prosperity, saying “We need more diplomacy, more negotiating, […] we need the UN more than before.” Maintaining the importance of multilateralism, the Brazilian President advocated for an expanded Security Council aligned with the reality of the twenty-first century, “to listen to the will of the overwhelming majority of the Assembly.” Turning to the 2030 Agenda, Mr. Temer said: “Brazil’s commitment to sustainable development is a deep-rooted one. It permeates our public policies and our actions abroad.” He pointed to the country’s contributions, including its commitment to the Paris Agreement, and highlighted that Brazil is at the forefront of a low carbon economy in which clean and renewable energy accounts for more than 40 per cent of its energy matrix – three times more of the world’s average. “We are leaders in hydropower and bioenergy,” he stressed.Noting that Brazil has the largest tropical forest on the planet, he announced that the country’s efforts in combatting deforestation have resulted in a more than 20 per cent reduction in the Amazonian region, saying “We are back on the right track and on this track we shall remain.”Also in South America, Mr. Temer pointed to the deteriorating human rights situation in Venezuela, saying that Brazil stands with the Venezuela people and “have welcomed thousands of migrants and refugees” from that country.Full statement available here read more

Football Running backs have chance to define Ohio States offense in 2018

Ohio State then-redshirt sophomore running back Mike Weber (25) runs the ball in the first half in the game against Illinois on Nov. 18, 2017. Ohio State won 52-14. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Managing Editor for DesignOhio State showed what it could do with the running back position in the final game of the 2017 season. Leading up to the 2017 Cotton Bowl, where the No. 5 Buckeyes took on No. 12 USC, much of the attention was on if the offense would utilize the two-running back set. Using both then-freshman J.K. Dobbins and then-redshirt sophomore Mike Weber in the same backfield was something the offense had been trying to integrate during bowl practice. However, it was used only once, and neither Dobbins nor Weber touched the ball on that play. Quarterback J.T. Barrett handed the ball off to then-redshirt junior Parris Campbell for a 21-yard gain on an H-back sweep to the right. Even without giving the ball to either of the two main rushers on the roster, Ohio State showed it could have some things up its sleeve for the running backs in 2018. When it comes to preparing for the upcoming season, the running back room could take a page out of the book of the players blocking for them. Offensive line coach Greg Studrawa said he wants his five best players on the field at one time, even if that means shifting a guard to center, which he has done twice with Pat Elflein and Billy Price. He could be in the process of doing again with junior guard Michael Jordan, who has been seen at fall practice taking reps at center. The same could be said at running back with both Weber and Dobbins bringing something unique and valuable for the Ohio State backfield. In his first season at Ohio State, Dobbins made an impact right away, setting the freshman record with 1,403 rushing yards, averaging 7.2 yards per carry. The second-team All-Big Ten honoree also had seven rushing touchdowns in his first collegiate season. While Dobbins was more of an every-down back, utilized in both the running game and the passing game, Weber, now a redshirt junior, was used more in scoring situations, averaging 6.2 yards per carry and leading Ohio State running backs with 10 rushing touchdowns in only 12 games played.The storyline prior to the start of last season was how much playing time would Dobbins get with a rusher like Weber, who was coming off a season in which he was named the Big Ten Thompson-Randle Freshman of the Year, in front of him. However, after Weber suffered a hamstring injury during training camp, the majority of the carries were given to Dobbins, one of six true freshmen to start the season opener in Ohio State history. Rushing for 181 yards against Indiana, Dobbins ignited a position battle throughout the regular season for both he and Weber split carries, eventually, with the help of Barrett at quarterback, leading the Big Ten in rushing. When it comes to giving the ball to the hot hand in 2018, that doesn’t necessarily mean Weber or Dobbins. Ohio State has two running backs coming in from the 2018 class in former four-star prospects Master Teague and Brian Snead.Each has already made a difference on the practice field, losing their black stripe prior to the first game against Oregon State on Sept. 1, signifying their initiation into the Ohio State football program.Teague had already made a visible impact prior to the start of his first fall camp. After enrolling in January, the 5-foot-11, 215-pound back had 73 yards and one rushing touchdown on 14 carries in the 2018 Spring Game. With the new redshirt rule, players are able to play in up to four games without burning their collegiate redshirt. Snead and Teague have an opportunity this season to make an impact. Ohio State has depth at what could be one of the most integral positions for offensive success in the upcoming season, especially with a quarterback position coming into 2018 with zero career starts. With Barrett gone from the quarterback room, Ohio State loses his passing ability, but also a dual-threat running ability. Redshirt sophomore Dwayne Haskins, who is first in line for the starting quarterback job, is more of a pro-style player. He has the ability to run, showing that with a 22-yard scramble against Michigan last year, but that is not a primary part of his game. Both Dobbins and Weber, and possibly Teague and Snead, could have to make up the carries that Barrett left last season, creating more of a need for running back production than ever before. At this point, as the Buckeyes prepare for the first game against the Beavers, the team looks to have the luxury of giving the ball to the hot hand. read more

Nintendo fait le bilan et doit tirer les leçons de ses erreurs

first_imgNintendo fait le bilan et doit tirer les leçons de ses erreursComme nous l’évoquions hier, Nintendo a subi un revers financier sur le premier semestre de l’année fiscale en cours. Loin du succès de la DS et de la Wii qui avait propulsé la firme nippone sur orbite, cette année 2011 a été compliquée. Face aux investisseurs, Nintendo doit se montrer plus que convaincant. Chez Nintendo, les conférences se suivent mais ne se ressemblent pas. Celle qui clôture le premier semestre fiscal de l’exercice 2011 a vu un chiffre d’affaire chutant de façon catastrophique. Pour le PDG de Nintendo, Satoru Iwata, c’est surtout le manque de hits sur ces consoles qui est en cause. L’irrégularité des sorties de (bons) jeux cette année à fortement influencé les ventes. Le line-up n’était pas au rendez-vous.À lire aussiNintendo : des jeux à télécharger aussi chers que les versions boîtesRappelons aussi que 2011 est synonyme de l’arrivée de la 3DS, la nouvelle portable de Nintendo. Cela ne vous a peut être pas échappé mais le prix de cette dernière était passé de 219 à 169.99 euros sur notre sol, en quelques mois à peine. Ceci a évidemment relancé les ventes qui étaient au point mort.Nintendo veut donc satisfaire son client et le fidéliser. C’est pourquoi une nouvelle communication s’imposait et plus précisément par le biais d’Internet. Nintendo a en effet organisé sa conférence en ligne, en l’adressant directement aux joueurs.Le géant du jeu vidéo se réconforte aussi par la vente de ses jeux (créés par Nintendo et non par d’autres studios tiers) qui apparaissent souvent dans les chartes, aussi bien japonaises qu’américaines et européennes. Ce point est peut être celui que les hardcore gamers auraient tendance à regretter : les gros succès sur consoles Nintendo sont souvent des titres comme Zelda, Mario ou Pokémon, très peu de softs adulte au final. Nintendo sera certainement attendu au tournant dès le premier trimestre 2012. A noter que sa nouvelle console, la Wii U, est prévu pour l’année prochaine. Il faudra donc veiller  à ne pas faire les mêmes erreurs. Le 21 octobre 2011 à 18:12 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Security jitters drive European investors back to safe havens

first_imgEuropean investors edged back into safer assets on Wednesday as a shootout between French police and militants suspected of involvement in the Paris attacks kept the market focused on international security issues.Stocks fell and core bonds rose, but the scale of the moves reflected caution rather than significant concern, economists said.The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index, which had risen 2.6 percent on Tuesday, fell 0.7 percent while the euro zone’s blue-chip Euro STOXX 50 index declined by 0.8 percent.German Bund yields fell 2 basis points to 0.51 percent, hitting their lowest in two weeks.The dollar was just off 7-month highs against a basket of currencies, as minutes from the latest Federal Reserve policy meeting were expected to underpin expectations of an interest rate hike in December.The dollar strength hit commodities, with London copper falling towards new six-year lows [MET/L].The European Central Bank is expected to supercharge monetary policy easing next month, a prospect the attacks have made even more likely.The bank’s chief economist Peter Praet said on Tuesday that such events hurt confidence while executive board member Yves Mersch said on Wednesday that “doom and gloom” talk was at this stage not warranted.”There’s absolutely no reason not to expect the ECB to ease next month and we’ve had further falls in commodity prices that adds to the subdued inflation outlook,” said Chris Scicluna, head of economic research at Daiwa Capital Markets in London.”The events in Paris compound that and compound the weaknesses in the euro area.”FED MINUTESThe dollar index was lower at 99.501 after touching 99.745 on Tuesday, its highest since mid April. It has risen 6.3 percent in the past month as market odds for a U.S. interest rate hike in December moved from around 30 percent to 66 percent.This week’s data further cemented rate hike expectations. Monthly U.S. consumer prices increased in October after two straight months of declines, putting annual core inflation at 1.9 percent.Industrial output fell short of market expectations but output in the manufacturing sector posted a solid increase.”It will be a case of range-trading going into the Fed minutes. We could see some positions being pared, with the dollar having risen in the past few weeks,” said Jeremy Stretch, head of currency strategy at CIBC World Markets.The dollar’s dip saw the euro regain ground. It rose to $1.0670, having dropped to a seven-month low of $1.0630 on Tuesday.Gold hit a 5-1/2-year low of $1,064.95 per ounce overnight as the strong dollar offset its traditional safe-haven appeal. In Europe, it was up 0.07 percent on the day at $1,071.4 an ounce. [GOL/]Oil prices rose following reports of falling stockpiles and rising refinery activity, though they remained not far from 6-1/2-year lows hit in August on persistent concerns about a global supply glut.U.S. crude futures were up almost half a dollar to $41.13 a barrel, while Brent crude futures traded at $44.13 per barrel.last_img read more
