Hyderabad ODI: Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni power India to 6-wicket win over Australia

first_imgBrief scores: India (240/4) beat Australia (236/7) by 6 wickets to take 1-0 lead in 5-match series. Jadhav (81*), Dhoni (59*), Kohli (44), Coulter-Nile (2/46) Full Scorecard | HighlightsMS Dhoni produced yet another match-winning performance on Saturday as he led India to a 6-wicket win over Australia in the first one-day international in Hyderabad. Dhoni was ably supported by Kedar Jadhav in the run chase of 237 at the Rajiv Gandhi International stadium in Uppal.India rode on Dhoni’s unebeaten 59 and Jadhav’s 81 not out to reach the target of 237 in 48.2 overs after they restricted the Aussies to 236 for 7 in the first innings.Dhoni and Jadhav stitched a 141-run partnership for the fifth-wicket off 149 balls to anchor the run-chase which had turned a bit tricky for the hosts after they lost the wickets of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Ambati Rayudu in quick succession early on.Rohit and Kohli gave India a solid start with their 76-run partnership after Nathan Coulter-Nile removed Shikhar Dhawan for a golden duck in the second over.

India have won 44 ODIs out of the 55 in which Jadhav has been a part of the ODI team. That’s 80% win record – highest for any player in ODIs with 50+ appearances. #INDvAUS @sagarcasmadvertisementRajneesh Gupta (@rgcricket) March 2, 2019During his knock Dhoni, who is averaging over 141 in ODIs this year, also went past Rohit Sharma to as the batsmen with the most sixes in the 50-over format for India.

U-17 star Aniket Jadhav set for three-month training stint at Blackburn Rovers

first_imgHaving impressed in the FIFA Under-17 World Cup, Jamshedpur FC forward Aniket Jadhav is set to take his next big step – a three-month training stint at English Championship football club Blackburn Rovers.The Kolhapur-based footballer will become the first Indian professional player to train in England when he joins the Blackburn Rovers Academy at Brockhall village, Lancashire.”For someone coming from a small place in Kolhapur, it’s a dream come true for me,” Jadhav, who played in all the three matches for hosts India at the Under-17 World Cup, told PTI before leaving for Lancashire.”I’m looking forward to this stint. The World Cup was a big experience and this is equally big and it keeps me on track with the mission when I left home as a nine-year-old kid,” the left-footed striker said.Having started his football journey under Jaideep Angiwal of Krida Prabodhini school in Pune, the striker was picked by Pune FC where he joined the Under-15 side before progressing to the Under-17s.He was spotted by Nicolai Adam during an U-17 World Cup trial in Mumbai and since then he has been a constant member of the youth side.”I would like to thank Blackburn Rovers FC for believing in me and my ability, and inviting me to train at their world class academy.”Jadhav also thanked Balaji Rao, owner of Blackburn Rovers Football Club, his agent Jehan Kothary of KSMN sports, and Jamshedpur FC for the support.Blackburn Rovers — one of only six champions of the Premier League alongside Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City and Leicester City – are owned by Venkys London Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Pune-based poultry conglomerate Venkateshwara Hatcheries Group.advertisementOwner of Blackburn Rovers Rao said the club wants to help young Indian talent.”Our Academy at Blackburn Rovers is one of the finest Category 1 Academy in the UK. This training stint will definitely help Aniket to develop technically as a player, which will in turn contribute to the improvement of his performances on the pitch.”We want to support young talented footballers in the best way possible to help improve the Indian national team’s performances and FIFA ranking on the world stage,” Rao said.Mukul Choudari of Jamshedpur FC also hailed Jadhav’s achievement .”We are very happy for Aniket. In fact, very rarely do Indian football players get such an opportunity and if they get it at this age, it is just fantastic, as this will only help him grow and enhance his skills further.”It is going to be a win-win for everybody. As Jamshedpur FC, we congratulate Aniket for his talent and the opportunity that he’s got, which we are sure he will make the best of and come back as a much better player and make us proud.”Also Read | Minerva Punjab to get rematch against Real Kashmir: AIFFlast_img read more

Inflation at 3.2% in July

first_imgStory Highlights Speaking at the Central Bank’s quarterly media briefing on Wednesday (August 29), at the BOJ Auditorium, downtown Kingston, Mr. Wynter said data from the Statistical Institute of Jamaica (STATIN) indicate that the increase was mainly influenced by increased electricity, water and sewerage costs; rising costs for some agricultural produce; and higher transportation costs. Bank of Jamaica (BOJ) Governor, Brian Wynter, says the rate of inflation rose marginally to 3.2 per cent at the end of July, a 0.4 per cent increase over the out-turn at the end of June.Speaking at the Central Bank’s quarterly media briefing on Wednesday (August 29), at the BOJ Auditorium, downtown Kingston, Mr. Wynter said data from the Statistical Institute of Jamaica (STATIN) indicate that the increase was mainly influenced by increased electricity, water and sewerage costs; rising costs for some agricultural produce; and higher transportation costs.Mr. Wynter reiterated that the lower-than-targeted 2.8 per cent June inflation out-turn and the July figure, which fell below the BOJ’s four to six per cent target, primarily reflected stronger-than-anticipated declines in food prices since the start of 2018.The Governor further noted that the June out-turn was due to a reduction in the pass-through of oil prices, and prevailing weaker-than-expected domestic demand.Mr. Wynter said the BOJ anticipates that increased economic activity will spur the inflation to rise to the four to six per cent range, consistent with the target under Jamaica’s agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF), and not through perceived manipulation of the foreign exchange rate by the Central Bank, to which he again declared “there is absolutely no truth”.“We have not done that, we are not now doing that, and we will not do that,” he further emphasised.The Governor indicated that the near-term inflation forecast is mainly predicated on an expected increase in domestic agricultural prices, oil prices remaining elevated, and the impact of improving economic activity, supported by the accommodative monetary conditions over the last year.Of note, he added, the level of inflation expected by businesses remains anchored in the midpoint of the Bank’s five per cent target.The Governor said the rate of private-sector credit growth is also expected to influence the inflation rate.He noted that credit extended by deposit-taking institutions to private-sector businesses and individuals grew at an annual rate of 15.9 per cent at June 2018, compared to 13.9 per cent in March, and 12.4 per cent at June 2017.This expansion, Mr. Wynter pointed out, was evenly balanced between business loans – 15.8 per cent, and personal loans – 16 per cent.Simultaneously, the Governor added, “we have seen the weighted average lending rates at commercial banks continue their decline during the June 2018 quarter”.“If this acceleration in private sector credit growth continues, the resulting increase in economic activity will [also] support inflation returning to the target of four to six per cent with greater certainty. The Bank of Jamaica is going to closely monitor these credit conditions and will make further cuts to the policy rate, if required,” he said.The BOJ announced on Tuesday (August 28), that it would be maintaining the policy interest rate on overnight placements at two per cent.The Bank said this decision reflects its updated assessment that inflation will rise towards the lower end of the four to six per cent target by the January to March 2019 quarter and, thereafter, will approach the middle of the range.Mr. Wynter pointed out that the inflation path continues to reflect “some slack” in the economy, which emphasises the continued elevated risk of the rate falling below the baseline projection.The Governor said an assessment of the risks to the forecast are “balanced”, with the main upside being worse-than-anticipated weather conditions, higher-than-projected domestic demand, and faster-than-anticipated exchange-rate depreciation, with international commodity prices, particularly crude oil, skewed to the downside.“While we are now seeing some encouraging signs of the faster expansion in private-sector credit that we need, we need to be sure that it is sustained, so that the ‘slack’ [in the economy] is removed as quickly as possible”.Noting that Jamaica’s overall macroeconomic indicators “continue to reflect stability”. Mr. Wynter said this environment will enable the BOJ to “continue with an accommodative policy stance in support of expanded output and job creation, which will return inflation to the Bank’s four to six per cent target”. Bank of Jamaica (BOJ) Governor, Brian Wynter, says the rate of inflation rose marginally to 3.2 per cent at the end of July, a 0.4 per cent increase over the out-turn at the end of June. Mr. Wynter reiterated that the lower-than-targeted 2.8 per cent June inflation out-turn and the July figure, which fell below the BOJ’s four to six per cent target, primarily reflected stronger-than-anticipated declines in food prices since the start of 2018.last_img read more

Our Amazing World Exhibit First of Its Kind in Canada

first_imgThe Museum of Natural History is showing the world in a whole new light. Our Amazing World, the museum’s newest permanent exhibit, opens today, Sept. 7. It uses a computer system, data sets and four projectors to display earth sciences information on a sphere about two metres in diameter. “The exhibit is cutting edge and the first permanent exhibit of its kind in Canada,” said Communities, Culture and Heritage Minister David Wilson. “We are pleased to invest in this technology to help Nova Scotians and visitors learn more about our province’s connection to the world.” The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration developed the technology, called Science on a Sphere. Our Amazing World is one of 73 museums and organizations worldwide using the technology. The room-sized exhibit broadcasts more than 400 data sets, or programs, including live weather such as storms, hurricanes and earthquakes. Other data sets display information on commercial air and water traffic routes, ocean acidification, Facebook connections and planets. The data sets are created by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, government agencies, museums and science centres. “Our Amazing World is extremely vivid and dynamic,” said director of operations for the Nova Scotia Museum, Calum Ewing. “We look forward to welcoming families, school groups and other visitors to the museum for this fun and educational experience.” For more information about Our Amazing World, call 902-424-7353 or visit http://nature.museum.gov.ns.ca .last_img read more

Details on Bluenose II Relaunch Unveiled

first_imgAlan Doyle of Great Big Sea will lead a parade of top-level Atlantic Canadian talent performing at the relaunch of the Bluenose II on Saturday, Sept. 29. The well-known performer will join host Tom Gallant, a Lunenburg County resident, actor and songwriter, as well as singers Laura Smith, Matt Mays and many others. “The Bluenose II is a magnificent ship so the festivities have to be equally magnificent, and they are,” said ministerial assistant Pam Birdsall, on behalf of Communities, Culture and Heritage Minister Leonard Preyra today, Sept. 12. The day-long festivities will begin with the official Bluenose II relaunch from 7-9 a.m., to take advantage of high morning tides. Details on that event will be announced soon. The relaunch, which is weather dependent, will slowly winch out the ship so it can slide into the water. “We want folks to know they will be seeing a ship without her masts yet. Still her beauty is breath-taking,” said Ms. Birdsall. “Bluenose II is in position now for relaunch,” said Peter Kinley, president of the Lunenburg Foundry, and one of the partners in the Lunenburg Shipyard Alliance with Covey Island Boatworks and Snyder’s Shipyard, who are completing the restoration for the province. “We have to start installing uprights and other relaunch equipment soon. This week is the best time to get photos at this stage,” Kinley said. After launched, Bluenose II will be moored by the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic for the day of entertainment. Family stage performances will take place throughout the day. Afternoon performers will include well-known local performers Razzamataz and Donna and Andy. Mr. Gallant and Mr. Doyle will anchor the evening performance from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m., before fireworks light up the night sky over Lunenburg harbour.

AltaGas appoints CEO to replace David Harris after sudden resignation in July

first_imgCalgary-based utility AltaGas Ltd. is appointing Randy Crawford as CEO four months after the sudden resignation of ex-CEO David Harris following an unspecified “complaint” to its board.In a news release, it says Crawford will take the reins on Dec. 10 from interim co-CEOs David Cornhill and Phillip Knoll, its chairman and a member of the board, respectively.AltaGas says Crawford has 30 years of experience in the natural gas industry and was most recently the president of midstream and commercial with EQT Corp., a U.S. gas company, where he led a growth strategy in the Marcellus natural gas fields in the northeastern U.S.It says the new CEO will be asked to strengthen AltaGas’ financial position, as well as focus on growth and new opportunities in its gas and U.S. utilities segments.The company said in July the complaint regarding Harris was not related to AltaGas’ strategy, operations or financial reporting, but hasn’t explained what it was related to or who made the complaint, nor has it given any detail of a review of the complaint it said it would undertake.Harris, who had been with AltaGas since 2010 and its top executive since April 2016, oversaw the company’s $6-billion deal to buy Washington, D.C.-based energy utility company WGL Holdings, Inc., which closed three weeks before his departure.

Trumpet crumpet Alison Balsom leads revolt against British Airways over greedy musical

first_img“We will always do our best to accommodate smaller musical instruments in the cabin.“In order to ensure there is enough space for all customers to store their belongings, larger musical instruments can be carried in the hold in a hard case. Alternatively customers can choose to buy an extra seat to carry them in the cabin at a discounted rate.” British Airways has been branded a “greedy disgrace” by one of the world’s leading classical musicians after the airline apparently announced it was charging for smaller instruments brought on board.Alison Balsom, the renowned trumpeter, led a revolt against the airline that prompted a loud and stirring chorus of disapproval. Ms Balsom wrote:   The outcry forced BA to issue a statement apologising for any misunderstanding and an insistence that the policy on carrying small instruments had not changed.Musicians are reluctant to allow precious instruments, often worth hundreds of thousands of pounds, out of their sight and into the hold where atmospheric conditions can also cause damage.On Tuesday, BA’s customer services posted a message to the classical music website, Slipped Disc which stated that from now on instruments carried on flights would be charged.  That’s it, I’m done @British_Airways – we’ve all been so patient with the lowering standards but not to let professional musicians bring on their (small) instruments as hand baggage? We take hundreds of thousands of flights -it’s our living. A greedy disgrace.— Alison Balsom (@alisonbalsom) December 19, 2017 “It’s true that we’ve changed our policy and we’re unable to allow musical instruments to be carried in cabin as hand baggage without charge. We ask all passengers travelling with musical instruments to contact us for assistance prior to their journey,” said BA.Hours later the airline said that advice had been wrong. Larger instruments such as cellos, guitars and double basses would continue to require an extra seat that must be paid for while violins and trumpets and the like, carried in hard cases, could be taken in the hold free provided there is space. A spokesman said: “We are sorry for the misunderstanding. We appreciate how precious instruments are to musicians and offer special arrangements for transporting them, which are detailed on ba.com . Meanwhile Escala, a prominent electric string quartet, said they refused to be bullied by BA into paying for their violins and violas on a trip back to London from Amsterdam two weeks ago.The quartet said in a statement: “There seem to be different rules in different countries. It is so unclear. It makes us nervous every time we approach the BA desk.”center_img The complaint trumpeted by Miss Balsom is hard to ignore. She is one of the classical music industry’s most bankable stars, having twice been named female artist of the year at the Classic Brits.Last week, she was unveiled as the new artistic director of the Cheltenham Music Festival and has been dubbed the ‘crumpet with the trumpet’. Her husband is the Oscar-winning film director Sam Mendes.Ms Balsom’s anger was accompanied by stirrings of discontent from the strings section. Rita Manning, a professional violinist, had complained of being charged £240 for a separate seat for her instrument on a recent flight to Jersey. Her fellow travelling musicians were also been charged.  Alison Balsom Alison Balsom Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Marijuana Soda Canna Cola

first_imgThey always warned us that marijuana was a gateway to harder things, but never in our wildest dreams could we have imagined that it might lead to something so devious as soda. Now, before we go anything further, let’s keep in mind that, for about a dozen or so years, a bottle of Coca Cola contained around nine milligrams of cocaine.By those standards, the advent of Canna Cola seems downright benign. After all, the stuff only contains a little THC–that’s the active ingredient in marijuana, for those not hip to the lingo. Each bottle has between 35 and 63 milligrams of the stuff. Canna Cola, comes in 12 ounce bottles (that’s “12 mind-blowing ounces,” as the packaging phrases it), and comes in Grape Ape, Orange Kush, DocWeed (Dr. Pepper), Sour Diesel (7UP/Sprite), and the eponymous cola-flavor. The bottles run a pricey $10 to $15 a pop.Fast Company compares the beverage to Four Loko, but these things will be confined to medical marijuana dispensaries, so at least theoretically, they’ll stay out of the hands of those who were felled by the ill-effects of caffeinated malt liquorlast_img read more

All the Easter bombers either killed or arrested SL police chief

first_imgSri Lankan security personnel stand guard in front of St Anthony`s Shrine two days after it was attacked as part of a string of suicide bomb attacks on churches and hotels, in Colombo on 23 April 2019. Photo: AFPSri Lankan security authorities have either killed or arrested all the jihadists responsible for the Easter suicide bombings that left 257 people dead, police chief Chandana Wickramaratne said Tuesday.Police have accounted for every individual involved in the April 21 attacks on three churches and three luxury hotels, Wickramaratne said in an audio statement.”All those who organised and carried out the suicide bomb attack have died or is in our custody,” he said.”The two bomb experts of the group have been killed. We have seized the explosives they had stored for future attacks.”Wickramaratne, who was named acting police chief last week after President Maithripala Sirisena suspended his predecessor over his failure to act on warnings about the attacks, said public life was slowly returning to normal with the lifting of curfews imposed after the bombs.The government reopened public schools on Monday, but attendance dropped to below 10 percent in many places with parents still fearing attacks.”We have strengthened security for all schools,” the police chief said. “We are also conducting a programme to create awareness about safety and security in all schools.”Wickramaratne did not say how many people were in custody over the bombings, but police spokesman Ruwan Gunasekera said Monday that 73 people, including nine women, were being held.The bombings were blamed on a local group, the national Thowheeth Jama’ath (NTJ), but the Islamic State group has also claimed responsibility.Police said religious tensions have eased at Negombo, a town north of Colombo that suffered the highest death toll in the Easter Sunday attacks. A bomb at St Sebastian’s church in the town killed more than 100 worshippers.Dozens of Muslim-owned businesses, homes and vehicles in Negombo were damaged in clashes on Sunday night.The Roman Catholic Church appealed for calm and urged Christians not to carry our revenge attacks against Muslims.Police said two arrests were made and more suspects had been identified through CCTV footage.last_img
