I won’t dump the team, says Srinivasan

first_imgFor the second time in a little over a month, the Indian cricket board refused to discuss the abysmal performance of the national team on its just-concluded winless tour of England, with new president N Srinivasan reposing full faith in the players.Officials who attended the 82nd BCCI annual general body meeting said that no one uttered a word on the team that failed to register a single win.”Not at all. No one said anything on India’s performance during the two-hour meeting,” one of them said on condition of anonymity.Even on August 15, by which time India had lost three of the four Tests, all the officials who attended a working committee meeting maintained a deafening silence.”They were the toast of India till two months ago, after they won the 50-over World Cup in April. You win some, you lose some. A number of factors led to the defeats, like injuries to some players and bad luck (rains and error-prone technology),” Srinivasan told Mail Today.”I am not going to dump the team just after one bad series.” Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s team failed to win a single Test, One-Day International or the lone Twenty20 International.A spate of injuries, fatigue, and rain were the main factors that led to the 0-4 whitewash in the Test series, the 0-3 defeat in the ODI series as well as the T20 International. Earlier in the day, addressing his first press conference as BCCI president, Srinivasan told reporters: “We didn’t have our best team from the beginning. We have faith in the team. There’s no reason why we can’t get back there (No. 1 spot). We have not formed any committee (for a post-mortem).”advertisementSrinivasan, however, said that the BCCI would complain to the ICC about Hot Spot technology.”We were extremely reluctant to implement the DRS (umpires’ Decision Review System) and had no belief in the ball tracking system. The BCCI is not averse to technology and agreed to a minimum usage of DRS, including HotSpot, at the last ICC meeting in Hong Kong,” he said.”We were under the impression that HotSpot was very good. It’s not necessary for me to dwell on the accuracy of HotSpot; it was there for everybody to see.”Rahul Dravid was once given out caught after the review, even though HotSpot showed the ball hadn’t touched his bat. There were other instances when Indians, including VVS Laxman, were at the receiving end of the errorprone technology.”The BCCI will raise this issue at the next ICC meeting. We want to revisit it as we feel HotSpot is insufficient technology and, therefore, we would request that it be revised,” said Srinivasan, who will now sit on the ICC executive board that takes the final call on all decisions.”At the last meeting, Mr (Shashank) Manohar had opposed the DRS before laying down office and at the next meeting I will do it.” A new set of office bearers formally took over at the AGM that was reduced from a two-day affair to one after the 14-point agenda was gone through quickly.Mohinder Amarnath replaced Yashpal Sharma as the north zone representative for the lone change on the senior selection panel. The junior panel remained unchanged. Gargi Banerjee will replace Vrinda Bhagat as head of the five-member women’s selection panel, which saw two changes.On the Indian team boycotting the ICC annual awards function in London recently, Srinivasan clarified that both Manohar and he got the ICC invitations, but not the team. “Neither of us could go as we were busy. But no specific invitation had gone to the team. Later on, an ICC team went to Lord’s to invite the players on September 11, but by then, the players had made their plans (for the day),” he said.Asked about the resumption of bilateral cricket ties between India and Pakistan, Srinivasan said as of now there was nothing on the table. A top Pakistan board official said in Lahore on Monday that they were eager to meet BCCI officials in this regard.last_img read more

EPL: Manchester United pay for Juan Mata red card in 1-0 loss at West Bromwich

first_imgManchester United was made to pay for Juan Mata’s early sending-off in a 1-0 loss to West Bromwich Albion on Sunday that damaged its ambitions of Champions League qualification from the Premier League.Mata collected two yellow cards in three minutes to leave his side with 10 men from the 26th minute and United couldn’t hold on, with Salomon Rondon scoring the winning goal in the 66th at The Hawthorns.The loss ended United’s run of four straight wins in all competitions and left the team sixth in the standings – three points behind fourth-place Manchester City, which has a game in hand.United initially coped well with Mata’s first-ever Premier League dismissal but failed to seriously threaten West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster.West Brom finished the stronger and secured its first home win over United in the Premier League era when Sebastien Pocognoli crossed from the left toward Rondon, who controlled the ball and slammed a left-footed shot into the corner from eight meters.”(The red card) changed the game because you have one less man in attacking areas, which affected us on the break especially,” United captain Michael Carrick said. “They were not causing us many problems but took their chance.”Mata collected his first yellow card for blocking a quickly taken free kick by Darren Fletcher, a former United player. Fletcher was then tripped by Mata as he attempted to run clear from his own area, earning the Spain playmaker his first-ever Premier League dismissal. The 27-year-old Spaniard joined Chelsea in 2011 and moved to United in 2014.advertisement”We have played 60 minutes with 10 versus 11, and this is the fifth match in 14 days,” United manager Louis van Gaal said. “It’s very difficult to play against 11 players (in this situation). I think it’s the reason why we lost.”West Brom moved to 39 points, one adrift of the target manager Tony Pulis has set the team.”As you’ve seen this year, results have been off the radar (in the Premier League),” Pulis said. “Let’s get 40 points. I think that’s definitely safe.”last_img read more

From Punk Bands to Poetry, Pablo Conejero Lopez is a True Renaissance Man

first_img NASCAR Driver Brad Keselowski on Crashing, Winning, and Creating a Legacy Slopestyle Mountain Bike Champion Emil Johansson Talks Tricks, Staying Fit, and More Editors’ Recommendations The Best Campgrounds Near Major U.S. Cities Today we hear from Spanish born Pablo Conejero Lopez, a poet, musician who also works at J. Mueser in New York City.I was born and raised in Valencia, a small city on the Mediterranean coast of Spain. Due to the professions of my parents, I spent a big portion of the first seventeen years of my life in a small town called Seven Oaks in Kent, England.At the age of 18, just after starting my career as an actor and collaborator at the acting studio of The Shakespeare Foundation of Spain (a position I still hold today as Honorary Vice-President) , I went to drama school at the National Youth Theater in London.  This period marked the awakening of what you could call my voice as a poet. Working with monologues and poems in class I gradually figured out a way to develop the artistic persona I had been seeking. I could exist somewhere between reality and fiction by translating my impressions into poems. I find this concept very interesting. The privilege that it is to experience this and to connect with people through art; to somehow be of service to humanity.Yet, it wasn’t until I was 22 that I started considering Poetry and Music as my main vocation.In the summer of 2004 (aged 24) I released my first collection of poems, named Rock and Roll Jolie  . I also put out two albums as the lead singer and lyricist of a Spanish cult punk band called Vice & Vanity. With them I toured extensively around Spain. We became quite well known within the underground scene in the Madrid of those days and even got some mainstream exposure.In 2006 I moved to New York City with an Artist Visa, (sponsored by The Shakespeare Foundation of Spain) for poetry research and development. I had my second book, entitled New Reality, published in December 2011.New Reality is a collection of poems and songs illustrated by artist Vincent Michaud. Vincent is my husband and artistic partner with whom I’m always collaborating. We released New Reality at The Hole Gallery on The Bowery with a self produced event which included live music, a poetry reading and an exhibition of the illustrations. This event resulted in the formation of a musical act called Mone, in 2012 performing  at a number of selected events and venues around New York.These days I’m living in the Lower East Side/Chinatown area of Manhattan, just a block away from the East River and Cherry Street, which used to be the first stop for immigrants coming from Spain back in the early XX Century. My maternal grandfather emigrated from Valencia as a child with his parents and brother in 1917. They returned to Spain six years after, though, but I like to think that a part of their spirit is still here close to me.I recently started a new and exciting collaborative music project called Ensalmo. We will release a couple tracks and play live in early 2017  so stay tuned!I also just completed what will be my first bilingual Poetry book. I originally wrote most of the poems in Spanish and then translated them into English. Some were developed the other way around. I feel that this might be the most experimental work I’ve done up to this point. Meaning that I hadn’t played with the two languages I speak and the general tone this much before. The book will be published by next spring. I will unveil the title and the rest of details very soon.When I’m not wearing J. Mueser I usually just wear Vintage.Outerwear: My Favorite coat is a brown leather trench from the 70s I bought at a Vintage store in Brooklyn. It was, funny enough, originally made by Cortefiel which is a department store in Spain that used to be very hip in the 70s and 80s.Accessories: All my jewelry is brand-less. Just silver, two rings with gem stones from random Tibetan places in the East Village. A silver chain on my wrist from a small hispanic jewelry shop off of 14th street that doesn’t exist anymore. My favorite belt a thick black with square buckle I’ve had for 10 years and I bought at the Navy-Army store on Houston St.Shirts: All my shirts are from weird second hand stores or the Salvation Army, if they are not J Mueser.Jeans: My favorite pair of jeans is a $5 extra faded 2nd hand pair of wranglers I bleached, then dyed and got tailoredShoes: My shoes are either Jefferey-West or my favorite pair of Zipp-up, Chelsea boots from Merc London, made in Spain.Suits: Worsted Wool Navy Suit, Cashmere roll neck sweater and pocket square, all by J. MueserFavorite cologne: Heno De PraviaFavorite app: Oblique Strategies Favorite piece of technology: A turntable if that counts.Next style/gear purchase: I’m getting a custom flannel suit made at J. Mueser.  My choice to stay warm, feel comfortable and look sharp in the winter.

India may have lost contact with moon on hard landing

first_imgBengaluru: Echoing Indian space agency Chairman K. Sivan’s hunch on the descent of lander Vikram being terrifying, a space expert on Sunday said its hard landing on the moon at a tilted angle could have snapped the communication link with the mission control here, 3.84 lakh km away. “The contact has been lost because Vikram would have hit the moon’s surface hard at high speed and tumbled over rather than landing softly on its four legs as intended,” former Space Commission member Roddam Narasimha told IANS. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c details Though the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is yet to affirm what could have snapped the contact between Vikram and its Telemetry, Tracking and Command Network Centre (Istrac) on early Saturday, the 86-year-old veteran space scientist said the link would have been lost as the lander hit the lunar surface hard, damaging its half-a-dozen sensitive devices such as laser detection cameras, ka band and laser altimeters, and other vital sensors. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from Thursday Sivan had announced in a tense mission control room that the communication link was lost when Vikram was 2.1 km above the lunar surface on descent mode as planned, and its performance was normal till then. Narasimha said: “As the telemetry signals showed Vikram descending angularly as planned, going through the rough and fine braking phases with its four engines on, the lander deviated to the right for a while before getting back to the intended path. This could have delayed Vikram’s positioning in a vertical mode for soft landing.” The hard landing would have also occurred if the four engines had not shut off when the lander was descending from 400 metres height and the central engine had not maintained the thrust to decelerate its speed for soft landing on a rocky surface in a hostile environment. “If the four engines or thrusters, which were moving the lander downwards, did not stop burning during the fine braking and the fifth or central engine did not generate enough thrust to reduce its speed, a hard landing would have been a body blow to Vikram,” pointed out Narasimha. Although the space agency on Sunday claimed to have found the location where Vikram had landed or crashed from a thermal image taken by its orbiter at 100km above the surface while spinning over its north-south poles, its health condition and the fate of its sensitive devices would be known only after analyzing the data and scanning the image. The space agency did not confirm reports in a section of the media that the communication link between the lander and the orbiter was intact but not with Istrac through its Deep Space Network (DSN) at Bylalu. “Even if the link between Vikram and the orbiter was intact, the space agency has to tell if the latter (orbiter) has relayed to the ground station the lander’s condition and what it has been relaying since it hard landed because they both have been programmed to transmit and receive telemetry signals through electromagnetic waves to perform the specific tasks as per the mission’s objectives,” said Narasimha, who served the space agency for the longest period (18 years) from 1994-2012. “As the final descent is on an autonomous mode and in accordance with the required lunar conditions, the scope for manoeuvres at the last minute or in unforeseen circumstances in unmanned missions are limited,” he added.last_img read more

Conservative MPs demand answers on future of Trans Mountain

first_imgOTTAWA (NEWS 1130) — The federal Natural Resources Committee held an emergency meeting on Parliament Hill as the opposition demanded action from the Trudeau government on the stalled Trans Mountain pipeline.Last week, the Federal Court of Appeal tossed out the approval of the controversial project, which the government is purchasing for 4.5-billion dollars.Opposition MP’s like Conservative shadow minister on natural resources, Shannon Stubbs, forced this emergency meeting in order to demand answers and action from the Trudeau government.Stubbs is angry the Liberals used their majority on the committee to defeat her motion to launch a study on the state of the Trans Mountain pipeline. She says the government needs to explain what went wrong and what it will do to get the pipeline built.“They have no plan and they have no answers for Canadians,” Stubbs says. “[The Liberal party have to] outline immediately a concrete plan to ensure that the Trans Mountain expansion can go ahead.”Liberal MP Marc Serre indicates the opposition will not get any answers today.Liberals defeat the Conservative motion at the Natural Resources committee to study the court ruling on Trans Mountain pipeline and have Ministers appear to explain the next steps #cdnpoli— Cormac Mac Sweeney (@cmaconthehill) September 4, 2018“We’re taking the appropriate time to review the decision and access the next steps,” says Serre, adding the feds are still committed to the project that is supposed to ship diluted bitumen from Edmonton to Burnaby Mountain for overseas exports.Liberals on the committee say the government needs time to study the decision before announcing next steps. It’s not clear if the government is considering an appeal.NDP leader Jagmeet Singh, on the other hand, says the whole project should be turfed.“The review process is flawed on a number of grounds,” Singh says, singling out the federal court’s findings that there were inadequate consultations with Indigenous communities and not enough examinations of the risks to the B.C. coast.Speaking to NEWS 1130 after a transit announcement in Surrey, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau doubled down on his previous statements on the Trans Mountain expansion.He adds consultations with First Nations and addressing environmental issues are not about appeasing the courts, but about demonstrating that Canada can get its resources onto global markets “in the right way.”“This is all about whether or not we can continue to be a resource exporting nation,” Trudeau says.“As we said from the very beginning, you can’t make a choice between the economy and the environment. You have to do them together, and that’s exactly what we have been focused on and we will continue to do even more of.”— with files from Sonia Aslamlast_img read more

Senegal Reaffirms Staunch Support for Moroccos Autonomy Plan

Rabat – Senegalese Foreign Affairs Minister Amadou Ba has reiterated his country’s commitment and ongoing support for Morocco’s Autonomy Plan. Morocco submitted the plan to the United Nations in 2007 as a way to reach an agreed upon and mutually acceptable political solution to end the dispute over Western Sahara.The Senegalese official made his statement on Monday, September 16, following a meeting with his Moroccan counterpart, Nasser Bourita.“I would like to reiterate in this regard the strong and constant support of the Republic of Senegal for the Moroccan Sahara, a position that Senegal has been defending for a long time,” said the official. Ba is in Morocco as part of an official two days visit, the first of its kind since his appointment in April 2019.The Senegalese official also reaffirmed Senegal’s determination to support the  UN-led political process to find a mutually acceptable political solution to the Western Sahara conflict.During a joint press conference, Morocco’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Nasser Bourita expressed his satisfaction with the strong diplomatic relations between the two African states. He added that Senegalese diplomacy has always been an ally to Morocco in its fight for territorial integrity.“The kingdom will always be grateful for this strong and active position expressed regularly at regional and international meetings,” he added.CounterterrorismIn addition to Western Sahara, the meeting’s agenda also touched on Morocco’s efforts to fight extremism and terrorism in Africa.The Senegalese official said that Morocco has developed expertise in the fight against terrorism. He added that this expertise could “help African countries face this scourge.”The Senegalese minister added that “Senegal and Morocco have dynamic and strong” ties strengthened through the special relationship between HM King Mohammed VI and President of the Republic of Senegal, Macky Sall. read more

Security Council extends mandate of UN Liberia mission

Adopting a new resolution today that extended UNMIL through 30 September 2015, the Council decided the mission would also focus on human rights promotion and protection, and protection of UN personnel. UNMIL would also assist the Government of Liberia in developing and implementing, “as soon as possible and in close coordination with bilateral and multilateral partners, its national strategy on Security Sector Reform (SSR).” The Council decided that UNMIL’s authorized strength would remain at up to 4,811 military and 1,795 police personnel. In its duties, UNMIL also would coordinate with the UN Mission for Ebola Emergency Response (UNMEER), as appropriate.Further to the resolution, UNMIL would assist senatorial elections – postponed since October – by providing logistical support. In the area of human rights, it would carry out promotion, protection and monitoring activities, with a focus on abuse against women and children, notably sexual- and gender-based violence.The Council decided that UNMIL would have a “renewed focus” on supporting the Government in achieving a transition of complete security responsibility to the Liberian National Police, by strengthening its capacity to manage personnel and improve training. It requested the Secretary-General to ensure that the Mission had qualified specialist advisers to help the implementation of sustainable rule of law, justice, governance and security sector reform programmes.Urging the Government to prioritize the development of security agencies, especially the National Police, the Council emphasized the need for progress on constitutional and institutional reforms and urged intensified efforts on the transition of security responsibilities from UNMIL to the national authorities. More broadly, it recognized that the Ebola outbreak had put on hold joint activities of Liberia and Côte d’Ivoire and affirmed the importance of inter-mission cooperation arrangements as UNMIL and the UN Operation in Côte d’Ivoire (UNOCI) downsized.In that context, the Council recalled the Secretary-General’s proposal to establish a quick reaction force to implement UNOCI’s mandate and support UNMIL, as well as its requests to ensure that the unit reached full operational capability no later than May 2015. It requested the Secretary-General to provide a midterm report on the ground situation no later than 30 April 2015 and a final report no later than 15 August 2015. read more

Buckeyes fall in straight sets to Penn State

The Ohio State women’s volleyball team lost in straight sets to 9th-ranked Penn State Wednesday night at St. John Arena (25-22, 25-21, 25-18). The match featured 22 ties and nine lead changes, but OSU couldn’t seem to get in a serving rhythm. “Our serving just wasn’t great tonight,” OSU coach Geoff Carlston said. “We’ve got to go back and we’ll work on that tomorrow.” The much bigger Penn State team created problems for the Buckeyes all night on the front lines. “They changed their blocking strategy. They committed on their middles,” senior outside hitter Anna Szerszen said. “We weren’t able to adapt fast enough.” Sophomore outside hitter Emily Danks led the Buckeyes with nine points, including six kills. Reigning Big Ten Player of the Week Kelli Barhorst was held to three points as Penn State adjusted to defend her early. “We were setting the same ball to her and they we’re defending it well,” Carlston said. Sophomore setter Amanda Peterson was productive off the bench for the Buckeyes. “Amanda Peterson came in and did a nice job of changing up the flow,” Carlston said. The Buckeyes look to improve their defense as they move farther into Big Ten play. “Our defense needs to perform better on the block,” senior setter Betsy Hone said. “We need to crash in, put our helmets on and play some defense.” With the loss, OSU drops to 16-6 on the season and 4-5 in Big Ten play. They travel to Evanston, Ill., to take on 22nd-ranked Northwestern Friday night at 7 p.m. read more

Make better process measurements in your plant

first_imgTraditional mechanical flow and level transmitters have been superseded by modern transmitters with no moving parts for the majority of applications. Guided wave radar level transmitters, vibronic level switches and the array of modern flow technologies on offer from Endress+Hauser have a number of significant advantages the company says both on new installations and as a direct replacement for equipment on your existing plant, reducing costs while increasing safety.The benefits include personnel safety because little or no mechanical maintenance on modern devices eliminates the need for personnel contact with process fluids. Reliable measurement and self-diagnostics ensure a safe process. Precise repeatable measurement gives consistent quality of the end product. Greater process uptime can be achieved through reduced maintenance and calibration and the simplest possible SIL proof tests.Most of the installation is simple with two-wire loop powered and four-wire powered devices.Modern flow technologies offer huge benefits over older mechanical devices, not only from reduced maintenance costs and increased safety but also by providing much more process data to allow more efficient running of your plant. For example, Coriolis meters provide up to 10 process measurements, including mass flow, volume flow, temperature, viscosity, density and concentration. Endress+Hauser also supplies vortex, electromagnetic, ultrasonic and thermal flowmeters for almost any application.Traditional displacer level transmitters and float switches have been superseded by guided wave radar devices for a majority of level measurement applications. While the concept of a displacer or float is simple, the moving parts they rely on make them subject to the same issues that affect all mechanical systems, thereby reducing reliability. Fitting modern level transmitters that have no moving parts gives increased confidence in the measurement by removing the most common causes of failure.last_img read more

6 videos that perfectly sum up a 1980s Irish childhood

first_imgAH, THE 1980s. A more innocent time. A time of mullets; of growing pains; and of sharp, sharp fashions.And nowhere were the fashions sharper, the pains more painful, or the mullets, er, mulletier than in small-town Ireland.Do you remember? Allow us to refresh your memory. Let’s take you on a voyage to a small Midlands town in the 1980s.The tour starts at…1. The local discoIt’s murder on the dancefloor. And by ‘murder’ we mean ‘death by line-dancing accident’.2. Sporting gloryAlso known as ‘two young fellas beating the heads off each other’.3. Meeting local politiciansIs that the young, fresh-faced Brian Cowen on the canvass around the six-minute mark (and elsewhere)? Yes. Yes, it is.Fairly overshadowed by the sunglasses on his assistant. They call him “Magnum Force”.And did we mention the mobile phone around 9.05?4. The St Patrick’s Day paradeFeaturing men sawing wood. It’s what St Patrick would have wanted.5. The talent showOK, this happened in 1991. But the talent show never changes. It’s a wonder these people never attained pop stardom.Also, could the camera please be a little closer to their faces?6. Emigration from ShannonRemember when you could go outside at an airport and watch d’aeroplanes?And when everyone was leaving to live in other countries?
