ICC is Indian Cricket Council: Bangladesh fans cry foul over Liton Das’s dismissal

first_imgBangladesh fans were not impressed with the umpiring decision that led to centurion Liton Das’s dismissal during the Asia Cup 2018 final at the Dubai International Stadium on Friday.Liton, who was batting on 121 off 116 balls, was given out stumped of the bowling off Kuldeep Yadav after a close decision. Liton’s dismissal left Bangladesh reeling at 188/6 from 41 overs. After Liton’s wicket, Bangladesh struggled to put on runs and folded for 222 from 48.4 overs.Kuldeep bowled a wrong ‘un around off and Das didn’t pick it and came forward to block. He was beaten past the outside edge and his back leg dragged out of the crease. Dhoni whipped the bails off in a jiffy and it was referred upstairs. The TV umpire took several looks at it from different angles. The foot seemed to be behind the line from one angle but from the stump cam it looked like the foot was on the line.Asia Cup 2018, India vs Bangladesh: Report | Highlights | PhotosBut, it was signaled out eventually. In close calls, the benefit of doubt usually goes to the batsman but it seems in this case, the third umpire had made up his mind.That didn’t go down well with the Bangladeshi fans and they expressed their anger on Twitter.Also read – Asia Cup 2018: Hope Bangladesh won a lot of hearts, says Mashrafe Mortaza@ICC Liton Das not out Al Masud (@benjaminebeelz1) September 28, 2018He is The Third umpire of Today’s match. his decision not good.hi is dalal of india.

India plans for Test series disrupted as Shikhar Dhawan gets second duck

first_imgIndia cricket team Ashwin is likely to be partnered by the left-arm wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav, who conceded 24 from his sole four-over spell in this match.Despite being kept in the field for 94 overs by an Essex side who eventually declared their first innings on 359 for eight, India sent down only 11 wicketless overs of spin. Ravindra Jadeja, who bowled two, appears the most likely spinner to miss out at Edgbaston.India also have a difficult call over their seamers, with Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav fighting for two places.Umesh was his team’s best bowler by some distance in this match, taking four for 35 from 18 overs. Yet Ishant and Shami are still considered favourites to make India’s XI at Edgbaston ahead of a bowler who has not played a Test outside the subcontinent in two years. … we have a small favour to ask.

Dhawan was expected to partner Murali Vijay at the top of the order for the start of the five-Test series at Edgbaston before he returned a pair in this drawn three-day encounter in Chelmsford. The Spin: sign up and get our weekly cricket email. Support The Guardian His place is now under threat after facing only four deliveries in preparation for the challenge of taking on Jimmy Anderson and Stuart Broad with the new ball in Birmingham. Dhawan is likely to be replaced at the top of the order by KL Rahul, who was expected to bat at No 3 in the first Test.That means a possible reprieve for Cheteshwar Pujara, who was expected to be dropped following a poor run of form that has seen him average only 14.33 in six County Championship matches for Yorkshire this summer. Pujara hardly made a compelling case for his inclusion in Chelmsford, scoring 23 on the final day after making one in the first innings.It leaves India with a selection headache at the top of their order. Yet they will have an equally tough decision over their bowling attack. In terms of spinners, Ravichandran Ashwin is assured of his place after overcoming the minor finger injury he sustained batting in the nets on Thursday. After sitting on the sidelines for the first two days, the off-spinner got through five overs on the final morning without any apparent trouble.

a month agoNapoli coach Ancelotti: We beat Liverpool with the long ball!

first_imgNapoli coach Ancelotti: We beat Liverpool with the long ball!by Carlos Volcanoa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveNapoli coach Carlo Ancelotti was delighted with his players for victory over Champions League opponents Liverpool.Dries Mertens converted a penalty and Fernando Llorente made the most of a Virgil van Dijk error at the Stadio San Paolo for a 2-0 result.“It’s always tough against Liverpool, from the first minute to the last. We had to sacrifice ourselves, but without losing our identity,” Ancelotti told Sky Sport Italia.“We tried a bit too hard to play it out from the back and lost some dangerous balls, while they were aggressive in their pressing.“The game was always in the balance, but I particularly appreciated the way we defended with the basics when it was still 0-0 and that’s what allowed us to have those late chances.“I want to see a team that believes in itself and its quality. I really liked the way we played when we weren’t in control. Llorente helped out, the players were tired and the first goal was from a long ball – which isn’t our usual approach, but it’s not an insult to do that sometimes. This team must know how to do everything.“We brought in important players who improve the quality level of the squad and have different characteristics to what we had before. I have to keep them motivated and that’s not easy, especially when UEFA still have this rule forcing you to keep a short bench and it’s painful sending players to the stands.”He added: “We felt confident on the second goal, it was near the end and we were a goal up. You can press high at times, not at others, it’s about maintaining your identity and also being able to do everything. I liked our quality, but also how we played ‘ugly’ when we needed to.“I asked Giovanni Di Lorenzo how many Champions League games he’d played before and he said none. Oh well, it wasn’t bad! The same goes for Alex Meret, that was his debut, as well.” About the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Philippines UN dispatches experts after ferry carrying toxic cargo capsizes

The “Princess of the Stars” ferry boat capsized on 21 June about three kilometres from the shore of Sibuyan Island in the central Philippines, as Typhoon Fengshen was moving through the area.Only 56 of the 849 passengers on the ferry, bound for Cebu Island, survived. The rest remain unaccounted for and are believed to be trapped inside the ferry.Efforts to recover the bodies were suspended following the discovery of a cargo of large quantities of highly toxic pesticides, in addition to an estimated 100,000 litres of fuel.“If not handled properly, this could be a disaster upon a disaster,” said Vladimir Sakharov, Chief of the Joint UNEP/OCHA Environment Unit (JEU) – a collaborative effort between the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) and the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) that mobilizes and coordinates international response to environmental emergencies.“Leakage of the ferry’s toxic cargo would cause major ecological damage and thereby have a terrible impact on the livelihoods of people living in the region,” he warned.Officials are particularly concerned about the chemicals endosulfan, carbofuran and methamidophos. Unknown quantities of other highly toxic pesticides – namely antracol, tamaron, nicolsamide and carbamate – have been reported to be among the cargo.The joint team, comprising a marine chemist, an eco-toxicologist and a civil protection expert, is expected to spend one week in the Philippines to assess the situation, including determining the priority needs, and report on its findings.The mission is a joint initiative of the European Commission’s Monitoring and Information Centre (MIC) and the JEU, integrated into the Emergency Services Branch of OCHA. 10 July 2008A team consisting of experts from the United Nations and the European Union is being sent today to the Philippines to assess the situation of a capsized ferry containing large quantities of highly toxic chemicals. read more

America stands with you John McCain tells Ukraine protesters

first_imgYanukovych supporters wave flags during a rally today. (AP Photo/Sergei Grits) THE EUROPEAN UNION has suspended historic partnership talks with Ukraine today as 200,000 protesters massed in the heart of Kiev demanding that the government recommit itself to the West.The ex-Soviet nation of 46 million has been at the heart of a furious diplomatic tug of war since President Viktor Yanukovych’s shock decision last month to ditch a landmark EU association agreement and seek closer ties with old master Russia.EU Enlargement Commissioner Stefan Fuele announced in a surprise tweet that the 28-nation bloc was halting all negotiations until it received “a clear commitment” from Yanukovych that Ukraine was serious about the deal.“Ukraine: Words and deeds of President and government regarding #AssocAgreement further and further apart,” said Fuele.Pro EU protesters in Independence Square (AP Photo/Sergei Grits) Yanukovych is due in Moscow on Tuesday for talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin that protesters occupying central Kiev’s iconic Independence Square fear could result in an even firmer alliance between the two neighbours.Demonstrators have planned another huge rally to coincide with Yanukovych’s meeting with Putin on Tuesday evening. They were warmly reassured of continued US backing today by Republican Senator John McCain — one of Washington’s staunchest critics of Kremlin rule.John McCain arrives at the pro-EU rally in Independence Square in Kiev (AP Photo/Dmitry Lovetsky) “To all Ukraine, America stands with you,” McCain called out to a cheering sea of people who chanted “Thank you!” in English in return.Work on holdProtesters were eagerly awaiting McCain’s appearance amid freezing weather this afternoon when news spread that EU enlargement chief Fuele had said Brussels was halting talks with Kiev after an inconclusive meeting on Friday.EU officials told Ukraine that further discussions required a “clear commitment (to) sign (but) Work on hold, had no answer,” said Fuele. (AP Photo/Dmitry Lovetsky) A Ukrainian government spokesman quickly responded that Kiev remained serious about the negotiations and did not treat Fuele’s tweet as the formal position of the bloc.Prime Minister Mykola Azarov has requested a €20 billion loan from the European Union before it signs the closer trade and political association deal.Ukraine says the money would compensate for the losses it would suffer from the trade sanctions threatened by Russia — which has promised cheaper natural gas shipments should Kiev join a customs union championed by Putin instead.A cross in memory of victims of Stalin’s regime is seen over the pro-EU activists in Kiev today (AP Photo/Alexander Zemilanichenko) EU officials have rejected the loan request and argued that Ukraine stood to benefit over the long term from the removal of EU trade barriers.Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt — a strong proponent of Ukraine’s integration who has paid repeated visits to Kiev — said on Sunday that the original terms of the EU deal stood.Barricades made of snow, tyres, wood and fire protect the pro-EU rally from riot police.

The bond between Greece and Australia will never break

first_imgFollowing this year’s Anzac Centenary celebrations, the Organisation of Hellene and Hellene-Cypriot Women of Australia, SA (OEEGASA) gathered last Sunday afternoon 30 April behind the northern boundary of Government House to attend the unveiling of the first ever static WW1 Australian Army Nursing Service (AANS) Memorial, honouring the 130 Anzac nurses who treated and cared for thousands of wounded Australian soldiers, 102 years ago, during the Gallipoli Campaign.“Today is a special recognition of the Australian nurses who served in WW1 on the island of Lemnos and other parts of the Western Front and particularly the Gallipoli nurses, who saved so many of the casualties and were never recognised for any of the work they did at the time,” says Secretary of OEEGASA, Petula Columbus in an interview with Neos Kosmos. This is the first time that a memorial has been erected in SA to honour these brave and skilled nurses who voluntarily left Australia determined to work on battlefronts that were often very badly equipped, had very little resources and, for many of the dying soldiers, they were the last connection with home. “These brave young women left the security of their homes and endured unspeakable hardships during the Gallipoli campaign. It is finally such a blessing that we managed to bring their efforts to light, in the absence of any recognition of their services to Australia until now,” says Columbus, who together with the rest of the OEEGASA members and the South Australian Government worked tirelessly on this project for two and a half years. “This is a wonderful initiative and I would like to praise you for the commitment you have made to this beautiful monument to acknowledge the sacrifices of the nurses in the war,” said His Excellency the Honourable Governor of South Australia Hieu Van Le, AC who, following the laying of remembrance wreaths, hosted a reception for his distinguished guests at Government House SA together with his wife Lan Le. Governor Hieu Van Le with President of OEEGASA, Helen Haltis and Bishop Nikandros.Amongst the dignitaries that attended the event was also His Grace Bishop Nikandros of Dorilaion; General Consul of Greece in Adelaide, Andreas-Konstantinos Gouras; President of the Inter-Communities Council of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of SA, Con Dalas; President of the Greek Orthodox Community of South Australia, Mr Bill Gonis; and Army Museum of South Australia Manager, Major Chris Roe, and members of the Lemnos Association, and OEEGASA. “On behalf of our organisation, our committee and its members, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support, your guidance and your friendship throughout those 15 years since the incorporation of our organisation and your help to bring this project to life and to commemorate the WW1 Australia nurses,” said the President of OEEGASA, Helen Haltis, in her speech at Government House. According to Columbus, the initiative has been well-received locally, by both Greeks and Australians, while leaving some citizens bewildered as to why it has taken so long to come to fruition. “There are so many heroic women that hadn’t received any recognition until recently and I am hoping that this is possibly the start of a new era where the sacrifices women have made are just as important as the sacrifices men have made,” says Columbus who reveals that there were four women amongst the 2000 nurses who were of Greek background. “To us it means a lot to honour those nurses who possibly served with our relatives on the island of Lemnos and I strongly believe that we ought to acknowledge and honour the roles of our Australian sisters, whilst it is also our duty to keep the bond between Greece and Australia alive in people’s hearts. “As the plaque on the memorial says: ‘The bond amongst the two countries will never been broken’,” Columbus concludes.

Youth leader urges the young to take politics seriously

first_imgBy Kebba Jeffang,Kaddy Sanneh, the vice chairperson of the West Coast Region Youth Committee (WCR-YC) has tasked young people to do away with the perception of seeing politics as meaningless, useless, valueless and time wasting.She made this statement at Bwiam on 27th August, 2016 where youth groups and women in the West Coast Region and political parties’ supporters were converged as part of the nation-wide election project of the National Council for Civic Education (NCCE) to sensitise the youth and women on the importance of their participation and representation in politics.Speaking earlier, Isatou Bittaye, senior programme officer NCCE, said the project is funded by the UNDP in order to reach out to communities in every region of the country and sensitise them on their civic rights especially in this election year.She said it is evident that the participation of young people and women are too low as they appear as clappers and dancers in their respective political parties.Representing the Women’s Bureau, Bintou Fatty-Joof said women empowerment is a nation’s empowerment especially in politics. She tasked women to stand firm and go into politics as political candidates rather than being just mere clappers and dancers of men in political positions.“When a woman holds a key political position it enhances sustainable development which helps in breaking the gender inequality that exists between men and women,” said Joof.She said it is important for women to trust and have confidence in their fellow women candidates who opt for political positions in their respective districts to enhance female participation in politics rather than undermining each other.“Women’s participation is fundamental to democracy and essential to achieving sustainable development goals and peace”, she further said, noting that, “data has shown that counties with greater gender equality have higher gross national prudent and per capital income,” she said.She added that “women’s leadership in corporate sectors of the economy results in improved performance, equitable laws and social programmes and budgets that benefit women, children and families.”She concluded by saying equality and women participation in politics and decision making is a human right and not a privilege, she also said.Kaddy Sanneh vice chairperson West Coast Region youth committee in deputizing for the Executive Director of the National Youth Council said, participation and representation of youth in politics is limited.“Most young people see involvement in politics as meaningless, useless, valueless and time wasting which we should avoid. Young people and groups should see participation in politics as our right to self and national development,” said Sanneh.She said young people are not voiceless but yet are not heard; not minority but yet not seen because they isolate themselves and therefore called on youth to be involved, participate and be represented in politics.“Youth should not see politics as meant for the elderly as we are the future”, she added, “Participating in politics means preparing our future,” she said.Ms Sanneh called on youth to take the lead in order to address issues affecting them.“Most of the time we sit back murmuring, blaming leaders for not doing things right for us”, she further said.She also challenged young people to register and vote during elections as it is their civic right. She called on young people to change their attitude as the country belongs to them, and can only be developed by them.last_img read more

Mango preservation device invented by BARI scientists

first_img`Hot Water Treatment` device invented by BARI scientists put on display in Chapainawabganj`s Regional Horticulture Research Institute on 22 June, 2019. Photo: Prothom AloBangladesh Agriculture Research Institute scientists (BARI) have invented a new device which can decontaminate mangoes and preserve them for a long time.The device named ‘Hot Water Treatment’, which has been shown to mango growers at the Regional Horticulture Research Institute recently, can decontaminate the mangoes from bacterial infection simply treating them through hot water.Chief scientific official Zamir Uddin said that BARI’s engineering wing invented the machine many years ago.”It was big in size then. The updated version is small in size and easy to transport,” he added.Once the mangoes are kept for five minutes inside the machine under temperature 55 degree centigrade, will be cleaned off harmful bacteria and grow more natural preservation capacity.The BARI scientists demonstrated the machine in a bid to show mango farmers how it works at a programme on 22 June.”The way we pick mangos from trees are unscientific. The viscous essence that spills from mangoes contains Malic Acid. The acid helps mangoes get rotten quicker. This is called mango’s ‘nasal anthrax’” said Kamala Ranjan Das, additional secretary of agriculture ministry, while speaking as chief guest at the programme.”Also, ‘fruit flies’ attack mangoes egging on them and that later turned into pests and eat up mangos,” he added.”Once the mangos are treated through the machine, it destroys the harmful pests and saves mangoes from bacterial infection,” he explained.last_img

Photo: AFP”Terrible reports from Sri Lanka about bloody attacks on hotels and churches on this Easter Sunday,” Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte tweeted after the attacks first emerged.”Thoughts are with the victims and their relatives.”Australia: ‘Terrorist attack’Prime minister Scott Morrison said Australia was thinking of those killed in a “horrific terrorist attack”.”To the beautiful people of Sri Lanka, Australia sends its heartfelt sympathies and our prayers and our support — and our offer to do whatever we can to support you in this terrible time of need,” he said in a statement.British prime minister Theresa May holds a news conference following an extraordinary European Union leaders summit to discuss Brexit, in Brussels, Belgium on 11 April 2019. Photo: Reuters”At this time as Easter Sunday draws to a conclusion here in Australia, our heart goes out to those Christians and all of those other innocents who have been slaughtered today in this horrific terrorist attack.”New Zealand: ‘Devastating’A month after dozens of Muslims were killed in a shooting at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern described the attack as “devastating”.”New Zealand condemns all acts of terrorism, and our resolve has only been strengthened by the attack on our soil on the 15th of March. To see an attack in Sri Lanka while people were in churches and at hotels is devastating.This handout photograph taken and released on 14 April 2019 by the Australian prime minister`s office shows Australia`s prime minister Scott Morrison (C) addressing supporters at an election launch rally in Brisbane. Photo: AFP”New Zealand rejects all forms of extremism and stands for freedom of religion and the right to worship safely. Collectively we must find the will and the answers to end such violence.”Catholic Church in Holy Land: ‘Solidarity’ The Catholic Church in Jerusalem said the blasts were particularly sad as they “came while Christians celebrate Easter”.”We pray for the souls of the victims and ask for speedy recovery of the injured, and ask God to inspire the terrorists to repent of their killing and intimidation,” the statement said.”We also express our solidarity with Sri Lanka and all its inhabitants in their various religious and ethnic backgrounds.”last_img

Malwarebytes releases AdwCleaner 74 featuring preinstalled software cleaning

first_imgMalwarebytes releases AdwCleaner 7.4 featuring preinstalled software cleaning by Martin Brinkmann on July 26, 2019 in Software – 12 commentsMalwarebytes, maker of the security solution of the same name, released a new version of the company’s AdwCleaner program this week. AdwCleaner is a standalone free program designed to detect and remove adware and other unwanted software programs from Windows machines.The first big update of AdwCleaner released this year brings the version of the program to 7.4 and introduces preinstalled software detection and cleaning to the application.Malwarebytes acquired AdwCleaner in 2016 and maintained a standalone version of the program that is free to use since then.AdwCleaner 7.4AdwCleaner 7.4 can be downloaded from the project’s page on the Malwarebytes website. Existing users should receive an update notification when they launch a previous version of the application; they may use the prompt to download and install the update to AdwCleaner 7.4.Note: AdwCleaner collects anonymous usage statistics by default. You can disable the functionality under Settings > Application > Usage and Threat Statistics.The application supports a number of new features, the most prominent one introduces the ability to scan and manage preinstalled software. The developers of the application define preinstalled software as “software that typically comes pre-loaded on a new computer separate from the operating system”.Most pre-installed software is not required to run the system according to Malwarebytes and that is certainly a true statement. Depending on what is pre-installed, it may even impact system stability, performance, or security in a negative way.The definition excludes software that comes with the operating system; users who hoped that AdwCleaner would allow them to deal with pre-installed Windows applications need to find other ways to deal with those.Is there a pre-packaged app that is not necessary for your machine to run? You have the option to get rid of it. Is there a pre-installed, superfluous program taking up vital space on your computer? Feel free to get rid of it.And if you accidentally remove a preinstalled application by mistake, the newest version of AdwCleaner allows you to completely restore it from the quarantine.The quarantine separates pre-installed software from adware to make the distinction easier.What else is new? A glossary has been added to the scan results page. Just click on the ?-icon to open it in a new window. It provides explanations for the different types of adware, e.g. potentially unwanted programs, spyware, or preinstalled software, that AdwCleaner detects and uses for classification.Other changes include supporting HTTP/2 for all HTTP requests, library updates, and support for using a styled titlebar on Windows 10.Now You: Do you use AdwCleaner or a similar program?SummaryArticle NameMalwarebytes releases AdwCleaner 7.4 featuring preinstalled software cleaningDescriptionMalwarebytes, maker of the security solution of the same name, released a new version of the company’s AdwCleaner program this week.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

Google AI researchers introduce PlaNet an AI agent that can learn about

first_imgThe Google AI team in collaboration with DeepMind announced a new and open source “Deep Planning” Network, called PlaNet, last week. PlaNet is an AI agent that learns a world model using only image inputs and further plans with these models to gain experiences. PlaNet can easily solve a variety of image-based control tasks as well as compete with the advanced model-free agents. The Google AI team is also releasing the source code for the research community to further explore and build upon PlaNet. How does PlaNet work? PlaNet depends on a compact sequence of hidden or latent states. This is known called a latent dynamics model where instead of predicting directly from one image to the next image, the latent state forward is first predicted. “By compressing the images in this way, the agent can automatically learn more abstract representations, such as positions and velocities of objects, making it easier to predict forward without having to generate images along the way”, states the Google AI team. In a latent dynamics model, the information of the input images gets integrated into the hidden states with the help of an encoder network. The hidden state then gets further projected forward to predict future images and rewards. For planning, past images are encoded into the current hidden state, and then the future rewards for multiple action sequences are predicted. PlaNet agents trained on different image-based control tasks PlaNet agents are trained across a variety of image-based control tasks. These tasks pose different challenges such as partial observability, sparse rewards for catching a ball, etc. Moreover, a single PlaNet agent is trained to solve all six tasks. Without any changes to the hyperparameters, this multi-task agent is able to achieve the same mean performance as individual agents. “We advocate for further research that focuses on learning accurate dynamics models on tasks of even higher difficulty, such as 3D environments and real-world robotics tasks. We are excited about the possibilities that model-based reinforcement learning opens up”, states the Google AI team. For more information, check out the official Google AI PlaNet announcement.

Army officer may be linked to spate of bombing attacks

first_imgThe arrest of a 44-year-old non-commissioned officer of the National Guard in connection with at least two bomb attacks in Limassol may lead back to several other earlier incidents, the Limassol district court heard on Wednesday.He had been arrested early on Wednesday over the placing of an explosive device at the entrance of a 57-year-old woman’s house. When it didn’t go off another device was placed on her car.When the suspect appeared in court, he was threatened by the woman’s relatives, including her son, who is thought to have been the intended target of the attack.Police were able to prevent altercations and the family members limited their aggression to verbal abuse.But while attendees waited for the remand hearing to start, new evidence from Wednesday’s investigations after the man’s arrest suggested he may have been involved in an older bombing attempt.He was placed back in custody and will be brought back to court for a remand hearing for both cases.Speaking to reporters, CID Limassol chief Ioannis Soteriades said the 44-year-old was arrested after testimony was obtained against him, and that testimony against others coming up in the course of investigations could not be ruled out.“These are not the only bombing attempts we have had, there are many more,” Soteriades said.“Certainly, investigation will focus on older cases involving such serious crimes.”Asked whether the suspect had acted on behalf of others for money, the CID chief said “this may be part of the testimony that can be cited at Thursday’s remand hearing”.With regard to the recent wave of bomb attacks in Limassol, Soteriades said that “the cases that have taken place recently have certainly troubled the police, which is why we are taking additional measures”.“Such measures include patrols across the city of Limassol, as well as the surrounding rural areas, with police dogs and members from other police departments,” he said.“The effort to foster a sense of security to the public will continue unabated.”You May LikeTown and Country | HanacureSee Why Celebrities Love This Face MaskTown and Country | HanacureUndoMyFinanceTwo Accounts Your Bank Doesn’t Want You to Know AboutMyFinanceUndoYahoo SearchThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
