Harbhajan: People will have their opinions but Virat is the best captain

first_imgHarbhajan: People will have their opinions but Virat is the best captainWorld Cup-winning off-spinner Harbhajan Singh said Virat Kohli is among the best when it comes to captaincy in international cricket, pointing out his role in helping the team win their 1st-ever Test series in Australia earlier this year.advertisement Next Rahul Rawat New DelhiOctober 9, 2019UPDATED: October 9, 2019 19:41 IST Indian captain Virat Kohli on field (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSVirat Kohli among the best captains going around: HarbhajanKohli will lead India in his 50th Test as captain vs South Africa in PuneHarbhajan said Rohit can make a big impact as opener for India in TestsVirat Kohli’s captaincy has earned him brickbats and accolades in equal measure. Many will present his record in the Indian Premier League (IPL), where he has endured more failures than success, to substantiate his below par captaincy but in India jersey, his captaincy record is unmatched.Virat Kohli is already the most successful Indian captain with 29 wins in 49 Tests. On Thursday when Virat will walk onto the field to lead India in the Pune Test it will be his 50th Test as Indian captain. He will go past Sourav Ganguly (49) and MS Dhoni (60) will remain as the only player to have led India in more Tests than him.Despite these strong numbers, Virat has had to face some serious questions over his selections calls and some on-field decisions. But for Harbhajan Singh, Virat is the best captain in the world at the moment.”If you see Virat’s (captaincy) record, he has won more number of matches than any other (Indian) captain. There are only a few other names (international captains) who have won more Tests than him. So he must be doing something better than others,” Harbhajan told India Today.”Whether people like it or not that’s their opinion. In my opinion, he is doing a great job for India as a leader, showing how to win games not just in India but overseas too. The way he handled pressure in Australia, was remarkable. There were lot of expectations on him not just as a captain but also as a batsman, and he came out like a champion.advertisement”I hope he achieves the milestones, he has set for himself. He wants to be the best captain in the world and in my opinion he is the best,” the veteran off-spinner proclaimed.Harbhajan, who has 417 wickets to his name in 103 Tests, was also effusive in his praise for Rohit Sharma as a Test opener. Although he stopped short of calling Rohit the next Virender Sehwag of Indian cricket in Tests, he believes the Mumbai marauder can cause a similar impact that Sehwag had in his heydays.”I don’t want to compare Rohit with anyone. But yes, Virender Sehwag had the biggest impact on the opposition. If you didn’t get Sehwag out, you would find him batting on 250 or 270 by the end of day’s play.”Rohit is no less and is more than capable of scoring big in a similar fashion. Rohit has a better technique (than Sehwag) and he could be even more dangerous. With Sehwag you knew he will go after you once he was set but with Rohit, he will play those shots that you would think he is not looking to play but will still hit you far enough.”This is the best decision that the team management has taken in the recent past. I think, with Rohit opening and scoring those runs in that fashion, it is a great for Indian cricket going forward. I would like the management to continue with him for at least 8-10 games,” said Bhajji, who has seen both Sehwag and Rohit from close quarters.Meanwhile, Harbhajan insists that South Africa will find it tough to reverse the result in the Pune Test, following a 203-run defeat against India in Visakhapatnam.He said toss will play a crucial role if the Proteas are to do better in the second Test, otherwise they are in for a difficult time against a superior Indian team.”I don’t think South Africa will be able to get the result they want. India are way too strong for them. Toss also becomes very crucial. If you see the Vizag Test, there wasn’t much for the bowlers on the first two days. So, South Africa will have to win the toss, bat well to post something around 450 and then bowl well. But unfortunately, I don’t think South Africa have the bowlers to trouble this Indian batting.”It should be 3-0 (series win in favour of India) but will also depend on the surface. Last game at Pune, we saw a rank turner. But keeping surface aside, India should sweep South Africa 3-0,” Harbhajan said.Also Read | Pune Weather Forecast, India vs South Africa 2nd Test Match: Will bad weather play spoilsport?Also see:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Usain Bolt Joins HeForShe Campaign

first_imgUsain Bolt, Jamaica’s Olympic champion and “the fastest man in the world” has signed on to UN Women’s HeForShe Campaign.Usain Bolt, an icon for track and field athletics, who has established himself as the greatest sprinter of all-time, brings to the forefront of his global audience the issue of gender equality and ending violence against women and girls.The national launch of the HeForShe Campaign in Jamaica is a collaborative event with partners, the United States Embassy to Jamaica, Respect Jamaica, UN Women Multi-Country Office in the Caribbean, Digicel Jamaica, the High Commission of Canada, the British High Commission and the European Union Delegation to Jamaica.The Jamaica campaign is marked by high-level public commitments by the Minister of Gender Affairs, Olivia “Babsy” Grange, Jamaican and international recording artistes, such as Beenie Man and Omi, and Jamaican activists Michael Abrahams, Owen “Blakka” Ellis and Mutabaruka.Minister Olivia Grange commended the partnership between the U.S. Embassy in Jamaica, UN Women and her Ministry: “This campaign is an initiative which intends to reframe gender equality, from that of a women’s issue, to an issue which requires the full participation of both women and men. I believe that this approach is beneficial to all of society — socially, politically and economically.”Representative for the UN Women Multi-Country Office in the Caribbean, Christine Arab said the active participation of strong partners is central to the success of the campaign: “Given the crucial role of men and boys as advocates and agents of change, HeForShe provides a platform for men to self-identify with issues of gender equality and its benefits, which liberate not only women, but also men, from prescribed social roles and gender stereotypes. We congratulate Jamaica on an impressive list of HeForShe Champions representing the voices of the nation and with the ability to reach all corners of the island,” Ms. Arab added.“The United States Embassy in Kingston is proud to announce its support for the campaign,” said US Ambassador Luis G. Moreno. He urged all Jamaicans and those who support Jamaica to take the HeForShe Pledge and “stand together to create a bold, visible force for gender equality.”Canadian High Commissioner Sylvain Fabi is thrilled with the campaign. He noted “Our Prime Minister has made it very clear that in this day and age women must be treated as equals. Research demonstrates the critical role woman play and the positive impact they have on development, the economy and the family. It is imperative that everyone, women and men, support the goal of equality.”“The UK is committed to eliminating discrimination, poverty and violence against the women of the world, ” said British High Commissioner David Fitton. “In Jamaica, our High Commission has supported several initiatives aimed at building the capacity of the government and civil society to tackle issues surrounding women’s rights. Our hope is that this campaign can further help to increase the power of girls and women to control the decisions that affect them.”“We promote gender equality and women’s empowerment as a constant EU priority,” said José Luis Martínez, Chargé d’Affaires of the European Union Delegation in Jamaica. “We are delighted to be part of this effort to raise awareness about violence against women and girls and encourage all Jamaicans to be part of the change.”In 2014, UN Women’s Executive Director Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka launched the HeforShe Campaign. HeForShe is a solidarity movement for gender equality developed by UN Women. HeForShe calls on men and boys to work together with women and girls to end gender-based discrimination, and within that, the most egregious violation — gender-based violence. By aligning with the HeForShe campaign men and boys will signal their commitment to working to realize gender equality in their homes, schools, workplace, communities, places of worship and fields of play — ultimately in all of their social spaces.Over 1.3 million people globally have committed to HeForShe. Usain Bolt’s commitment and the leading HeForShe ambassadors’ participation is a lead-up to the official launch of the campaign at the end of this month.

Cognizant Q1 net income tumbles 15

first_imgNew Delhi: IT company Cognizant has reported over 15 per cent drop in net income for the quarter ended March, and slashed its full-year revenue growth outlook. The US-headquartered company, which has a significant portion of its employees based in India, revised its full-year 2019 revenue growth outlook to 3.6-5.1 per cent in constant currency, significantly less than 7-9 per cent projected just months ago. Cognizant follows January-December as financial year. Also Read – Commercial vehicle sales to remain subdued in current fiscal: IcraIt cited “first quarter underperformance” and likelihood of slower growth in financial services and healthcare as reasons for the massive cut in full-year outlook. The first quarter net income at $441 million was 15 per cent lower than $520 million clocked in the year-ago period. The quarterly revenue rose to $4.11 billion, up 5.1 per cent (6.8 per cent in constant currency) from the year-ago period – missing the company’s own estimates. “Cognizant’s growth and performance in the quarter leave room for improvement,” Brian Humphries, Chief Executive Officer of Cognizant, said in a statement.

We are committed to strengthening our execution to invest in growth and drive shareholder value,” Humphries added. Cognizant said its second quarter 2019 year-over-year revenue growth is estimated to be in the range of 3.9-4.9 per cent in constant currency. “Our revised full-year outlook reflects the first-quarter underperformance and expectations of slower growth in financial services and healthcare for the remaining 2019,” Karen McLoughlin, Chief Financial Officer said. In the coming quarters, the company intends to bring cost structure closer in line with the revised revenue expectations but will continue to invest in growth, talent, and innovation, McLoughlin said.last_img read more

Nobel laureate in economics says world leaders should back UNs labour goals

Speaking on the second day of a three-day Global Employment Forum at the ILO headquarters in Geneva, Professor Stiglitz argued that current international policies often fail to take account of the human value of labour, instead treating it as a commodity. “Equitable, sustainable and democratic development requires basic labour rights, including freedom of association and collective bargaining,” he said. Professor Stiglitz also noted that labour policies in many countries had been “subsumed” under broader economic policies often dominated by commercial and financial interests. “For too long, labour has [been] acquiescent, sometimes becoming an even more effective advocate of the policies than those whose interests they serve,” he said. The Forum has drawn some 700 political and economic officials to discuss the theme of “Creating Decent Work in the 21st Century” and address what ILO Director-General Juan Somavia has called the “biggest threats to human security affecting the largest number of people – rising unemployment and poverty.” read more

Rabbit Lake bounces back

first_imgCameco’s Rabbit Lake uranium operation in Canada has resumed normal mining activities, well ahead of schedule, after sealing off the source of a water inflow. In late November 2007, Cameco’s Rabbit Lake underground mine experienced increased water inflow and mining was suspended. Cameco constructed and poured four concrete bulkheads in the first two weeks following the start of this event and has since been grout sealing these bulkheads and the surrounding rock while waiting for the concrete to cure.At the same time, the site crews determined to locate the source of the water inflow and seal it permanently. An old exploration drill hole was identified as the potential source early on and Cameco used various techniques to locate and verify it. Crews confirmed the source of the mine water inflow by injecting a dye into the drill hole. Then they successfully plugged the hole by installing an inflatable packer in the hole. Mining activities were then able to resume. Cameco will install a permanent plug and grout a substantial length of the drill hole with cement to replace the inflatable packer in the next couple of weeks.Crews are also currently carrying out a grout sealing procedure on all four bulkheads. They continue to complete the bulkhead installation, primarily as a precautionary measure, since plugging of the exploration drill hole has effectively stopped the source of the increased water inflow and will therefore be the main solution.“Cameco employees attacked the inflow in two different ways and their success in staunching the water well ahead of schedule is a testament to their dedication, expertise and innovative thinking,” said Jerry Grandey, Cameco’s president and CEO. “All of this was done with full attention to risk evaluation and personnel safety.”The company reports that it will provide the 2008 production estimate for Rabbit Lake when it issues year end financial results. Cameco, with its head office in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, is the world’s largest uranium producer.last_img read more

SUV driven by Camas woman strikes pedestrian kills dog in Hillsboro Ore

first_imgPolice are investigating whether a Camas woman drove through a red light Sunday evening when her SUV struck a pedestrian and her dog in Hillsboro, Ore. Josefina Huntington, 61, was driving a 2006 Honda Element near the Tanasbourne area with her husband James in the passenger seat. As she drove westbound through the intersection of Northwest 194th Terrace and Evergreen Parkway, she struck a Hillsboro woman who was walking northbound through the crosswalk with her boxer, said Lt. Michael Roches, spokesman for the Hillsboro Police Department. The woman, Adrianne Susbauer, 26, was rushed to Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland, where she was in critical condition Monday night. The dog died. The crash occurred around 8:40 p.m., as the sun was setting behind the traffic light, Roches said. Huntington said the light was green as she approached the intersection, though the sun glare obscured her view. When she flipped down the visor and saw Susbauer, she did not have time to stop. No other motorists were in the intersection or nearby at the time of the accident, Roches said. A couple of people heard the crash and came over to help, but they did not see what happened.last_img read more

Officials 3 possible Green River victims in Lewis County

first_img CENTRALIA — Authorities said they are looking at three cold case homicides in Lewis County from the 1980s and ’90s for possible connections to the Green River serial killings.Investigators have uncovered nothing specific to link the deaths of the three women to Gary Ridgway, but the crimes have common elements, sheriff’s Sgt. Dusty Breen told The Chronicle in a story Friday.The victims disappeared from Pierce and King counties and were transients or involved in prostitution or drugs. Their bodies were dumped near Interstate 5. Ridgway, 64, pleaded guilty to killing 49 women in King County. He was spared the death penalty under a deal with King County prosecutors to cooperate in the search for bodies and is serving a life sentence at Washington State Penitentiary.He recently talked with Seattle station KOMO and said he may have more victims, but he has refused to talk to Lewis County detectives. If convicted of a killing outside King County, Ridgway could face the death penalty.King County sheriff’s officials say Ridgway is a pathological liar, a sociopath and most likely does not remember all of the women he killed or where he dumped their bodies.

Whats going on with Alaskas 17 wildfires

first_imgA view of the smoke column from the north side of the Taixtsalda Hill Fire taken during Monday’s initial attack. (Photo by Tim Whitesell/Alaska Division of Forestry)Wildfires are raging across many Western states, causing death, evacuations and massive efforts to contain the blazes. And though more than a dozen fires are burning in Alaska, the situation isn’t nearly as dire.Listen nowFor much of the summer, national news outlets have featured stories on the record-setting fire season scorching much of the Lower 48.Amid that coverage, on Tuesday one of NPR’s newscasts mentioned a startling figure about Alaska.“The National Interagency Fire Center says there are at least 106 large wildfires actively burning in the U.S.,” host Korva Coleman announced. “Alaska has the most, with 17.”While that is technically true, there is an important caveat.“I think the key thing to look at is that none of those fires are staffed,” Alaska Division of Forestry director Chris Maisch explained.Most of the fires burning in Alaska currently are far out in wilderness, and not a threat to communities, life or property. There is no need to send out fire crews to try containing them. The majority of the fires were started by lightning, and in cases like these, officials keep track of them but otherwise let nature run its course.“Alaska’s a bit different,” Maisch said, comparing the wildfire approach to how they are handled in other states. “We have a lot less population so we can let a lot of fires play the natural role that they do.”According to Maisch, overall the state has seen about half the number of wildfires it gets in an average season, with significantly less acreage burned.“It’s actually one of our lowest years in the last ten years,” Maisch added.In fact, it is the third year in a row with a low fire season for the state. But Maisch cautions that according to the law of averages that could portend a summer more like what’s happening in California and other parts of the west in the near future.last_img read more

Uma no Princesama The Dating Game We Didnt Know We Needed

first_imgGosh, I am so over dating normal guys! They just don’t have what it takes to get my heart pumping. But wait! What if there were a suitor out there with the beautiful face of a bishounen anime boy and the body of… a horse?! That would be perfect!We can only imagine that the above was part of the pitch for creating the weird as hell dating simulation game Uma no Prince-sama (Horse Prince), created by the minds at Usaya Co.Young love comes in many forms, and this time, also in the form of a pretty-faced stallion named Yuuma. Uma means “horse” in Japanese, so you can see the glorious pun here, yes? “Won’t you be my horse trainer?” Is the official tagline of the game.In the game, you must win Yuuma’s heart by “training” him in various tasks such as a young gentleman horse might need to learn. For example, cutting leeks and other vegetables! Because that is a 100% totally normal thing that all horses do. Yes. Super normal.Bizarrely enough, this game is also rated for gamers 12 years old and up due to “moderate violence.” The mind boggles trying to imagine what that might be in a game like this. Perhaps the severe weirdness of a scene like a horse-man kabe don (wall slam)? Oh, the mental violence!The app is only available via the Japanese iOS and Google Play stores, but if you’re crafty you can figure out how to get it, we’re just saying. Or are we just… neigh-ing? Oh, ho, ho.last_img read more

Critics Take Aim at Latest Trump Orders

first_imgCritics have begun to worry that Friday’s executive orders targeting too big to fail may signal another financial crisis is on the horizon.On Friday, President Donald Trump signed two executive orders calling for a Treasury review of 2016 tax regulations, as well as the oversight of the nation’s “too big to fail” institutions. Specifically, the orders require a review of the Orderly Liquidation Authority and a 180-day review of the Financial Stability Oversight Council, which designates which financial institutions are deemed “systemically important” or, as most put it, “too big to fail.”The review of the OLA, according to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, is designed to make sure it “doesn’t encourage excess risk-taking, moral hazard, and exposure to taxpayers.”Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling praised the president’s action, noting that bailouts should not be an option.“No company in America should ever be anointed ‘too big to fail’ and no taxpayer should ever be forced to pay for more Wall Street-type bailouts,” said Hensarling in a statement. “President Trump deserves tremendous praise for taking decisive action to protect taxpayers and our economy.  He pledged to dismantle Dodd-Frank, and his actions today are another significant step towards ending the Dodd-Frank mistake that has given Washington bureaucrats more power to politically control our economy.”However, according to Joseph Lynyak III, partner at Dorsey & Whitney, the OLA’s power is balanced by the FDIC’s authority—and that balance already prevents risk on its own.“In regard to the orderly liquidation authority,” Lynyak said, “while it is an extraordinary power, it might best be viewed as a valuable tool in the FDIC’s toolbox to resolve very large institutions, most particularly large bank holding companies. It should also be recalled that the FDIC has companion authority to borrow up to $500 billion from the Treasury, which must be paid back by other large banking institutions. This provides all large banks ‘skin in the game’ to ensure that competitors do not take excessive risks.”As for the FSOC review, Mnuchin told White House reporters that it’s to ensure fairness and transparency in the council’s operations.“I think the most important part of FSOC is that I can bring the regulators together, get everybody in a room, be able to address important part of regulation,” Mnuchin said. “FSOC also has the responsibility to designate certain entities, and the President will be instructing me to put a hold on that for designations until we do a thorough review and make sure it’s a fair and transparent process.”But many are worried these reviews aren’t as innocent as they’re meant to sound. In fact, according to Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, they could expose the economy to crisis-level risk.“Any actions to undermine these protections encourage Wall Street’s risky behavior and leave taxpayers and our economy exposed to another catastrophe,” Brown told the New York Times. “We should be working to lower taxes for hardworking families and workers across Ohio, not helping multimillion-dollar corporations cheat the system to avoid paying their fair share.”Lisa Donnor, Executive Director of Americans for Financial Reform, said the orders threaten financial stability.“From our perspective,” Donnor said, “it is a direction that is dramatically backwards on financial stability.” Critics Take Aim at Latest Trump Orders Dodd-Frank Trump 2017-04-21 Seth Welborn Sharecenter_img April 21, 2017 565 Views in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Newslast_img read more
