Talented Indian boys will get chance to train at Middlesex Academy: Tendulkar

first_imgNew Delhi, July 20 (PTI) It is his dream to ensure that talented Indian boys get state-of-the-art training facilities and Sachin Tendulkar today said that the Tendulkar Middlesex Global Academy (TMGA) is a giant step towards realising that. “Without doubt talented boys will get an opportunity to travel to England and train at the Middlesex Academy. There will be focus on the children coming from the less privileged society. We will try to provide them every assistance that they couldn’t afford,” Tendulkar told PTI. It is learnt that 100 percent scholarship will be provided to the talented cricketers. The TMGA is planning to have its centres across various countries including one in Tendulkar’s home city Mumbai. Asked what made him prefer the London-based county for a tie-up, Tendulkar said: “Whenever I have been in the UK during my playing days, I have trained a lot at the Middlesex Academy (headquartered at the Lord’s). So I had a fair idea about how they function. They came up with the idea last year.” While the focus will be on cricket, but Tendulkar wants the global academy to built a robust “club structure”, which will enable the young boys and girls to take up one sport even if not at professional level. “I want to build a solid club culture and that’s why the academy will have tennis, badminton, squash courts along with swimming pool. As I have maintained, it’s time we become a sport playing nation from a sport loving one,” the legend said.advertisement The camp for the Mumbai academy is expected to be conducted in November, once the monsoon season is over. “When we decided to launch the academy, we wanted to start off with Mumbai but due to monsoon, we are planning to have the camp in November,” Tendulkar said.

Man Utd vs Leeds team news: Pogba starts but no Lukaku

first_imgOne of England’s fiercest rivalries will be revived on the other side of the world as Manchester United face off against Leeds on Wednesday night in Australia. Both sides have had a successful start to their pre-season campaigns with the Red Devils beating Perth Glory 2-0 on Saturday, while Leeds have claimed wins against York City and Guiseley. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer used 23 different players against Glory as he looked to give most of his squad some minutes. Marcelo Bielsa, meanwhile, has only brought 16 players to Western Australia with half of his squad remaining in the UK.  Article continues below Editors’ Picks Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club?

International Day of Persons with Disabilities Symposium

first_imgPromoting social and economic inclusion for people with disabilities in Nova Scotia is the theme of the Symposium on Inclusive Education and Employment to be held Wednesday, Dec. 3. The symposium will take place at the Westin Nova Scotian Hotel to commemorate the United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities. It is sponsored in partnership with the Disabled Persons Commission, the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission and the Collaborative Partnership Network. “This symposium is an opportunity to highlight the many contributions that persons with disabilities can and do make in the workforce and the province,” said Anne MacRae, executive director of the Disabled Persons Commission. “It is important that we continue to create awareness around issues facing the community and provide education to reduce barriers.” The program includes a roundtable of experts presenting on articles of the United Nations Convention of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The convention, which was adopted in 2007, emphasizes the social aspects of disability, and recognizes barriers to full participation of persons with disabilities on an equal basis with others. To date, 41 countries have ratified the convention. “Nova Scotia has the highest rate of reported disability in Canada, and this is expected to increase with the aging population,” said Krista Daley, director and CEO of the Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission. “It is important that the human rights of people with disabilities are respected and protected, and when the United Nations convention is ratified in Canada it will become another tool to ensure this happens.” Other highlights include a cafe-style dialogue, a ceremony for persons with disabilities, and a luncheon sponsored by the Collaborative Partnerships Network. The symposium and luncheon are essential to celebrate the successful partnership that exists between the Collaborative Partnership Network of specialized agencies, Nova Scotia employers and persons with disabilities to realize the advancement of employment opportunities. “Persons with disabilities contributed about $25 million to the Nova Scotia economy in 2007 with the specialized employment supports of the Collaborative Partnership Network agencies” said Janice Ainsworth, co-chair of the Collaborative Partnership Network Society. “The Collaborative Partnership Network is unwavering in the belief that everyone in Nova Scotia can participate in the labour force to their individual desire and potential.” Input from the symposium will be used to create a framework for moving forward with a vision of social and economic inclusion of persons with disabilities in Nova Scotia.last_img read more

Sweeping electoral reforms needed to end malpractices Hazare

first_imgRalegan Siddh: Anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare has called for large-scale electoral reforms in the country to remove poll-related malpractices and to cleanse the system. The 81-year-old activist lamented that lack of awareness among voters and focus of political parties on winning the elections by hook or crook has led to degeneration of politics, and he saw no bright future for the country if the situation continued. Talking to PTI at his native village in Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra, Hazare said voters were one of the pillars of the democracy. “But looking at the reports of cash seizure from various places during the electioneering, one wonders why voters take money to vote. Is this the value of our freedom fighters, who gave us independence?” he asked. Hazare felt that the parties’ approach of coming to power by hook or crook has resulted in criminalisation of politics. “The sanctity of Parliament and state assemblies have come under threat,” he said. The octogenarian said he believed in the Constitution of India, in which there was no mention of election symbols and political parties. “Any individual who is above the age of 25 can contest elections. For the last six years, I am in correspondence with the Election Commission of India (ECI) seeking removal of election symbols. The Constitution of India recognises only individuals,” he said. The veteran Gandhian said using the sacrifices of martyrs for seeking votes was saddening. “When the trend is to do anything to come to power, such misuse is seen and voters are sleeping,” he said. He expressed sadness over not getting any response from Prime Minister Narendra Modi to his 32 letters written on a range of issues. He said the appointment of Lokpal recently done by the Centre was not up to his expectations. “But, I am confident that it will put a break on corrupt practices,” Hazare added. He said he will vote on April 23, as Ahmednagar goes to polls in the third phase of Lok Sabha elections in Maharashtra. “I will vote for the correct candidate or exercise the NOTA (none of the above) option,” he said. To a question whether he was following the Lok Sabha election campaign, the activist said, “Society does not remain the focal point in politics. The only motto is to get money through power and power through money.” Hazare said instead of the election symbols, names of candidates and their photos should be enough for voting. “In 1952, when the first (general) elections were held (in India), printing technology was not advanced and hence symbols were used. But now, you do not need symbols. This will curb the entry of undesirable people in the law-making bodies,” he said. If the system of symbols is done away, people with good image and proven track record will get elected, he opined.last_img read more

Dabiq Liberation Symbolic Victory for International Coalition Against ISIS

Rabat – Over the weekend, the Islamic State (ISIS) lost control of the village of Dabiq, Syria – the site, the terrorists say, of a coming apocalyptic battle between Islamic and “infidel” forces prophesized by one of the Prophet Mohammed’s companions, according to reports emerging from the area.Part of ISIS’ strategy has been to lure in Western forces – both American and European – to Dabiq, triggering a set of events that will bring about the end of time.However, instead of summoning the “infidel” forces they had anticipated, ISIS’ leadership lost the area to an offensive carried out by Syrian Muslim rebels and supported by the Turkish military. This has led the terrorist group’s online publication, called al-Naba, to roll back their insistence that the battle at Dabiq would bring forth the apocalypse. The group said the fight against the Turkish-backed Syrian rebels who overran ISIS forces in Dabiq did not represent the “horde of infidels” that Abu Hurayrah spoke of 1,300 years ago, according to The Independent.Dabiq is located near Syria’s border with Turkey, which makes securing the area a major objective for the Turkish military.A Turkish military source said the attack on the 1,200 ISIS troops stationed in the area began a month ago. Fighter jets and other forms of artillery had bombarded the town for 10 days before 2,000 Syrian rebels closed in to expel the terrorist group.This week, the Iraqi military will team up with Kurdish forces to fight the battle to retake ISIS-controlled Mosul – Iraq’s second largest city. read more

Wigneswaran against proposed Grama Rajya

Although the Maithripala Sirisena-Ranil Wickremesinghe government has a pleasant visage as compared to the regime it replaced, it is continuing the discredited policy of chipping away even the limited powers devolved to the provinces under the 13th Amendment of the constitution, Wigneswaran said. The Chief Minister of the Northern Province C V Wigneswaran today expressed opposition to the Government’s plan to introduce “Grama Rajya” as the unit of devolution of power, the New Indian Express reported.Presenting the Northern Provincial Council’s budget for 2016, Wigneswaran said that as per a circular sent by the Central Government, under the proposed “Grama Rajya” scheme of devolution, the Center’s village and provincial level development programs will be implemented by committees which come directly under it. This is tantamount to sidelining the Provincial Administration and the Provincial Council, Wigneswaran pointed out. In Sri Lanka, there is only administrative service or bureaucracy and this comes entirely under the control of the Center.Wigneswaran complained that the Center has given only 40 percent of the funds sought by the Northern Province for development work in 2016. The NPC had sought LKR 7,978.03 million but got only LKR 3,199 million. However, the Leader of the Opposition, S.Thavarajah of the Eelam People’ Democratic Party (EPDP) said that it would not be fair to expect the Finance Commission (which recommends the quantum of funds to be allocated to the various provinces) to accept in toto, a provincial administration’s demand. The commission has to examine a demand from various angles, he argued.Further, the Northern Province administration is not utilizing the funds already given, he pointed out.“Till October, only 38 percent of the funds allocated for 2015 had been spent. And the expenditure up to November has not been released to avoid further embarrassment,” Thavarajah said. Although there are no irritations from the present provincial Governor and the Chief Secretary (the incumbents being amiable in comparison with those who held these offices previously), the bureaucracy as such is still not under the control of the Provincial Council, Wigneswaran said. read more

90 of women faced sexual harassment in public transport

At the press conference, UNFPA presented a policy brief on the issue of sexual harassment against women in public transport, with suggested policy recommendations. A presentation on the survey findings was also made by Ms. Sharika Cooray, UNFPA Programme Analyst.The presentation highlighted that three individuals can trigger positive change: 1) the victim – by speaking up and taking action; 2) the bystander – by intervening and extending support; and 3) the perpetrator – by not inflicting any such harassment. The desired state will require long-term advocacy and strategic behavior change communication programmes on a large scale. To launch the campaign, UNFPA convened a press conference in Colombo, this morning. Members of the head table included United Nations Resident Coordinator Ms. Una McCauley, UNFPA Representative-designate Ms. Ritsu Nacken, Chairperson of the National Committee on Women Ms. Swarna Sumanasekara, Head of Children and Women Bureau of the Sri Lanka Police – Ms. L.R. Amarasena, and Activist from Grassrooted Trust, Ms. Paba Deshapriya. Addressing the issue as a national priority, UNFPA in partnership with the Ministry of Women’s and Child Affairs, Ministry of Transport & Civil Aviation, the Prime Minister’s Office, and the Sri Lanka Police, launched a public advocacy campaign titled ‘Does she travel safe?’ (ඇය සුරැකි ගමනකද? அவளின் பயணம் பாதுகாப்பானதா?). Emphasizing on the importance of addressing this social issue, UNFPA Representative, Ms. Ritsu Nacken said, “Sexual harassment against women on public transport is one form of Gender-based violence. In order to address the issue of gender-based violence at large we must gather nationwide data to assist in formulation of evidence-based policies. This study is a first step towards gathering GBV data in Sri Lanka”.Sexual harassment violates basic human rights and contributes to a culture that discriminates women and girls, affecting them physically, psychologically and economically. It is an issue faced by women globally, and may occur in varying degrees of physical and verbal abuse, even leading to incidents of rape.The campaign delivered by UNFPA is part of the Ministry of Women’s and Child Affair’s national celebrations to commemorate International Women’s Day in March 2017. (Colombo Gazette) Findings of a nationwide study commissioned by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) revealed that 90% of women and girls in Sri Lanka have been subjected to sexual harassment on public buses and trains. The findings also revealed that only 4% sought help from the Police.UNFPA commissioned the national study in 2015, with a sample of 2,500 women and girls between the ages of 15-35 years, from all administrative districts of the nine provinces in Sri Lanka. Data was collected through stakeholder consultations, key informant interviews, and questionnaire surveys. read more

Comcast buying DreamWorks Animation for about 355B

FILE – In this Thursday, July 19, 2012, file photo, DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, center, plays with Madagascar characters, Alex the lion, right, and Kowalski the penguin, left, during a groundbreaking opening of DreamWorks studios in Redwood City, Calif. Comcast is buying DreamWorks Animation, the film company behind the Shrek, Madagascar and Kung Fu Panda franchises, for approximately $3.55 billion, the companies announced Thursday, April 28, 2016. DreamWorks will become part of the Universal Filmed Entertainment Group, which includes Universal Pictures. Once the deal closes, DreamWorks co-founder and CEO Katzenberg will become chairman of DreamWorks New Media. He’ll also serve as a consultant to NBCUniversal, a unit of Comcast Corp. (AP Photo/Paul Sakuma, File) Comcast buying DreamWorks Animation for about $3.55B by Barbara Ortutay, The Associated Press Posted Apr 28, 2016 7:48 am MDT Last Updated Apr 28, 2016 at 4:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – Comcast is buying DreamWorks Animation, the film company behind the “Shrek,” ”Madagascar” and “Kung Fu Panda” franchises, for approximately $3.55 billion, strengthening its presence in the important and growing business of children’s entertainment.DreamWorks stockholders will receive $41 for each share they own. That’s a 24 per cent premium to the company’s Wednesday closing price of $32.20. The companies put the deal’s value at about $3.8 billion.DreamWorks will become part of the Universal Filmed Entertainment Group, which includes Universal Pictures. The studio has churned out hit animated movies through its Illumination label, including the “Minions” sequel and it has some Dr. Seuss projects in the works such as “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.”The nation’s largest cable company said the deal gives NBCUniversal, a unit of Comcast Corp., a “broader reach to a host of new audiences in the highly competitive kids and family entertainment space, in both TV and film.” In addition to the cartoon franchises, DreamWorks also owns what Comcast called a “thriving TV operation” with its AwesomenessTV network of online video creators and a lengthy contract to create shows for Netflix.The deal solves what Cowen and Co. analyst Doug Creutz “would have been a very difficult succession plan had DWA remained independent, as to a certain extent we think the company had been held together purely through (CEO Jeffrey) Katzenberg’s force of will.”The analyst said that while he is “skeptical about the strategic logic” for Comcast in inking the deal, it is an excellent one for DreamWorks.“Despite some positive recent developments with TV production and the Awesomeness asset, DWA remains a company that has not generated significant earnings since 2010,” Creutz wrote. “We think DWA is worth far less than either Marvel or Lucasfilm, for which Disney paid comparable prices when they acquired those companies.”Once the deal closes, DreamWorks co-founder and Katzenberg will become chairman of DreamWorks New Media. He’ll also serve as a consultant to NBCUniversal. Creutz called it a “happy exit.” Katzenberg owned nearly 10 million shares — meaning he’ll receive over $400 million — and controlled 60 per cent of the voting shares in the company, which spun off from DreamWorks Pictures as a publicly traded company in 2004. DreamWorks Pictures, backed by Steven Spielberg, produces live action movies like “Bridge of Spies” and is not part of the deal.Earlier this year, DreamWorks expanded a licensing deal with Netflix Inc. to have the online video service feature more of its series and movies. The expanded licensing agreement announced in January allows Netflix to showcase several new DreamWorks series, including “Trollhunters,” a fantasy created by acclaimed movie director Guillermo del Toro. The deal gives Netflix more video likely to appeal to children, an audience segment that has played an important role in its growing its service to 81.5 million subscribers in the first quarter.The boards of both Comcast and DreamWorks have approved the transaction, which is targeted to close by year’s end.Shares of DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc. leapt $7.76, or 24 per cent, to $39.97 while Comcast added 9 cents to $61.39 in afternoon trading. read more

Paul Pogba kills everything – Morgan declares

first_imgWillie Morgan has launched a scathing attack against Paul Pogba, claiming the Manchester United midfielder is too slow and cumbersome.The United legend claims that Jose Mourinho must drop the Frenchman in order to have a chance of defeating Liverpool on Sunday.United travel to Anfield this weekend looking to reduce the gap between both teams to 13 points, after a disastrous start to the 2018-19 season.The Red Devils have only managed to win seven of their 16 matches in the league so far and face the possibility of missing out on a UEFA Champions League, already eight points behind Chelsea down in sixth place.Pogba has been criticized for his poor performances over the last few weeks and seems disinterested on the pitch, with rumours of a possible move to Barcelona on the horizon.“The game against Fulham, albeit it was Fulham, they played really well,” Morgan told Love Sports Radio.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“They were quick, they were moving around, there was no Pogba in the team. He kills everything anyway, he’s just so slow and cumbersome. It was the first time they actually looked like a team.”“If he puts Matic and Pogba in midfield, the game stops every time they get the ball,” Morgan added.“So you have got to get the young lads in, a bit of movement, move the ball quicker. Rashford is a free player and can play anywhere, the kid is really good. I think we’ll get a result.”“Again it comes down to who does he play. If he plays Pogba and Matic we won’t win.

COPY LINKAD Loading … Close Thomas Peter-Pool/Getty ImagesPakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan said he feared another security incident with India, after the two nuclear-armed countries engaged in a dangerous escalation that fuelled “war hysteria” in New Delhi ahead of elections next month.In an interview with the Financial Times on Tuesday, Khan said tensions were still high even after the crisis over a militant attack in Kashmir had eased with the release of Indian Air Force pilot captured by Pakistani forces.”I’m still apprehensive before the elections, I feel that something could happen,” Khan told the newspaper.Pakistan and India, which have fought three wars since gaining independence from Britain in 1947, passed through a crisis last month after India accused Pakistan of being behind a militant attack that killed 40 policemen in Pulwama, in Indian-controlled Kashmir in February.Islamabad denied responsibility for the attack, which was claimed by Pakistan-based militant group Jaish-e Mohammed, but the attack prompted India to launch a cross border air strike against what it said was a militant training camp in Pakistan.Pakistan responded with air strikes of its own and in an ensuing dog fight over Kashmir, at least one Indian plane was shot down and its pilot captured. The pilot was subsequently returned to India, leading to an easing in the crisis.Khan has offered to hold talks with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the issue, the latest in a long series of confrontations over Kashmir, a majority Muslim region that is claimed by both countries. However, he said Modi’s government appeared to be using the tensions for electoral purposes.”When Pulwama happened I felt that Mr Modi’s government used that to build this war hysteria,” Khan told the Financial Times. “The Indian public should realise that this is all for winning the elections, it’s nothing to do with the real issues of the subcontinent.”He repeated a denial that Pakistan was involved in the Pulwama attack and said a crackdown had been launched against militant groups.Although the immediate crisis has eased, parts of Pakistani airspace continue to be closed to overflights, causing severe disruption to several international airline operations.center_img Our Fight is for Kashmir not against the Kashmiri’s says Narendra Modilast_img read more

Senator Cruz Explains Lack Of Town Hall Meetings

first_img X Listen 00:00 /01:14 Ed MayberrySenator Ted Cruz addresses employees of Atec, a Sugar Land-based NASA subcontractor.Democratic Representative Beto O’Rourke is taking a page out of Cruz’s 2012 campaign playbook by announcing his bid early and taking a grassroots approach. Those are the methods Senator Cruz says worked best for him four years ago. “You’ll recall nobody thought I had a prayer. Nobody thought we had any chance at all. All the money, all the institutional power in the state was opposed to us, and we saw an incredible grassroots army rise up.” Senator Cruz doesn’t appear to be concerned with calls from constituents for town hall meetings. He says instead he’s spending his time with small businesses like Atec in Sugar Land. He toured the facilities of that NASA subcontractor, saying that jobs and economic growth are his priorities. “And so I’m continuing to travel the state to hold gatherings like the one I just did here at Atec, a small business — meeting with Texans, listening to their concerns, answering their questions and fighting for them.”  Senator Cruz chairs the Science and Space subcommittee and authored the bipartisan NASA authorization — the first one in seven years. O’Rourke has little name recognition across Texas, which hasn’t elected a democrat statewide since 1994. To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Sharelast_img read more
