Players had encountered problems during the experiment with the pink balls for the Duleep Trophy when spinners had struggled to properly grip the “wet” ball after dew came into play. The Duleep Trophy games, however, were played with the Australian Kookaburra seems. SG balls relatively have harder and higher seam. That will give bowlers an edge over the Kookaburra or Duke’s balls, which have flatter seams.Anand has confirmed that the company has received the order from the BCCI. “The BCCI has asked us to provide six dozen balls by the mid-week next week. The SG Test cherry ball has performed remarkably well in terms of hardness, bounce, quality. The same technology goes into producing the pink balls,” said Anand. “Pink being a lighter colour there were some issues. We had to ensure that the ball doesn’t lose its shade and there is no glare when the lights are on. We have already identified the right paint. All technical issues are already sorted. It’s just that the balls are to be produced and delivered.Ready to provide pink balls as and when BCCI wants: SG“Coating process is different for the pink balls, which attract more dust. We have been aware of these concerns and have worked on that.”SG already has about two dozen pink balls in stock and if the BCCI desires the company is also in a position to provide some used balls.Read More:BCCI says no to Cricket Australia for pink ball day-night TestDe Villiers gives a thumbs-up to pink ball experience Cricket PSL 2021 Eliminator 1 PES vs KAR LIVE: best way to watch Peshawar Zalmi vs Karachi Kings Live Streaming in your country, India, Follow Live update WTC Final LIVE: Devon Conway continues red-hot form, slams fifty to provide New Zealand dream start Football Sanpareils Greenlands, manufacturers and official suppliers of the SG Test balls to the Board of Control for Cricket in India, will provide 72 pink balls for the Kolkata Test against the visiting Bangladesh team.The Test at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata, will be played under floodlights from November 22 to 26.

This FTSE 100 stock’s share price has fallen 23% in 2020. I’d buy now for the long term

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares See all posts by Edward Sheldon, CFA Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The FTSE 100 index recently had its worst quarter in over 30 years. As a result, many top companies’ share prices are now significantly lower than they were at the beginning of 2020.If you’re a long-term investor, these lower share prices could be a real opportunity. After all, the key to making money from stocks is to buy low and (eventually) sell high. With that in mind, here’s a look at a high-quality FTSE 100 company that I believe is worth buying for the long term today.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…FTSE 100 champion Sage (LSE: SGE), a leading provider of cloud-based accounting software, has seen its share price tank this year. Back in early January, the FTSE 100 stock – which is held by two of the UK’s top portfolio managers – was trading at around the 750p level. Today however, it trades for around 575p – nearly 25% lower.Of course, due to the coronavirus outbreak, there’s now considerably more economic uncertainty than there was in early 2020. So it makes sense that Sage’s share price has declined. However, the company’s long-term growth story remains attractive, which leads me to believe that the stock could potentially deliver strong long-term gains from here. Growth potentialWhat distinguishes Sage from many other FTSE 100 businesses is the fact that the company operates in a high-growth industry. With businesses around the world increasingly focusing on becoming more digital, the demand for cloud-based accounting solutions is on the rise. Indeed, according to a recent report by research firm Market Study Report LLC, the market for such solutions is set to grow at a rate of around 6.4% per year between now and 2025, which is certainly a healthy rate of growth.It’s also worth noting that Sage believes that its total addressable market is 72m businesses. Given that it only has around 3m customers now, this suggests there’s substantial room for growth.Coronavirus impactIn terms of the impact of the coronavirus, the company’s profits will most certainly take a hit in the short term. Earlier this week, the group advised that it was expecting a higher rate of customer churn due to business failures. It also said that it was expecting customers to defer purchase decisions. Organic recurring revenue growth is now expected to be below the previously guided range of 8% to 9%.However, the FTSE 100 company also said that it has a strong balance sheet with a low amount of debt, and that it is a “resilient” business supported by high-quality recurring revenues. It added that Covid-19 disruption supports the adoption of cloud-based accounting solutions due to the fact that they enhance business flexibility (i.e. remote working).Importantly, the company did not announce a dividend suspension.Long-term FTSE 100 buy Overall, there’s a lot I like about Sage from a long-term investment view.The company has a high degree of recurring revenues, is very profitable, and is financially sound. It also has an attractive growth story.The share price down nearly 25% year to date. I think now is a good time to be building a position in this high-quality FTSE 100 company.

Police searching for 3 men involved in brawl after right-wing Proud Boys event at New York club

first_imgNYPD(NEW YORK) — Police released photos of three men allegedly involved in a violent clash between right- and left-wing protesters in New York City last week.Investigators with the New York Police Department say the three took part in a brutal brawl Friday night between protesters and members of the right-wing Proud Boys organization, which has been designated as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.Police said two of the people wanted for questioning were seen kicking a victim lying on the sidewalk and the other was observed punching a victim who was trying to run away.New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio urged witnesses to speak up if they had any information about the fight.“The NYPD is fully investigating last night’s attack involving the Proud Boys. If you know anything, the NYPD wants your help,” De Blasio said in a statement. “Hate is never welcome in NYC and we will punish those responsible — whether they threw punches or incited violence — to the fullest extent of the law.”Cuomo struck a more pointed tone in his statement and called out the Proud Boys by name.“Hate cannot and will not be tolerated in New York. Here’s a message from a Queens boy to the so-called ‘proud boys’ – NY has zero tolerance for your bs,” the governor wrote in a tweet.The Southern Poverty Law Center, a nonprofit legal advocacy organization that monitors extremist activity, classifies the Proud Boys as a hate group due to its alleged use of anti-Muslim and white nationalist rhetoric. The Proud Boys group describes itself as “western chauvinists,” but it denies ties to the racist “alt-right” movement.Chaos erupted near the Metropolitan Republican Club in New York City at around 8:30 p.m. Friday as demonstrators gathered to protest a speech there by Proud Boys Founder Gavin McInnes.The club said some protesters threw glass bottles at attendees as they exited the venue.“Gavin’s talk on Friday night, while at times was politically incorrect and a bit edgy, was certainly not inciting violence,” the Metropolitan Republican Club wrote in a statement, noting that its building had been vandalized ahead of the event.Three others were already arrested in connection to the incident.Finbarr Slonim, 20, of Manhattan, and Kai Russo, 20, of Brooklyn, were arrested in the wake of the event on robbery and assault charges, according to police. A third man, 35-year-old Caleb Perkins, of Manhattan, was arrested and charged with robbery, assault and resisting arrest, police said.Investigators released video from the scene on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, showing the wanted men throwing punches as others cheered “USA” in the background. Officials said they could not confirm whether those arrested were associated with a particular group.Police said they were wanted for questioning and no charges have been filed.“We continue to investigate the violent incident on the UES on Friday night, and need information regarding these persons-of-interest,” the NYPD wrote in a tweet Saturday. “No complaints have been filed. If you were the victim of a crime, or have information about the incident, please call 1-800-577-TIPS. @NYPDTips.” Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Wrongful death lawsuit filed against owner of boat that caught on fire, killing 34

first_imgDNY59/iStock(NEW YORK) — Four months after a fire aboard a dive boat off the coast of Southern California killed 34 passengers, attorneys representing families of those who died say the boat’s owners and captain allowed the deadly events to unfold through their negligence. The attorneys have filed a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of three passengers and a crew member who died in the fire. They are arguing against the boat’s owners, Glen and Dana Fritzler, who filed a lawsuit in federal court to limit their liability for the fire. The Fritzlers, owners of Truth Aquatics, claim a maritime law from 1851 should lower or block all financial damages in the case.That petition was filed before some of the bodies had even been recovered from the ocean. “This was a heartless, callous act which inflicted further pain on these families,” said attorney Robert Mongeluzzi, who is representing the victims’ families. Mongeluzzi and fellow attorney Jeff Goodman contend the ancient maritime law does not apply in the case because Truth Aquatics knew about safety hazards on the boat before it set sail. They say Truth Aquatics failed to provide night watchmen as required by law and did not offer adequate protections to prevent fires where electronic equipment was being charged.“There are numerous ways that a responsible company can make sure this doesn’t occur,” said Goodman. It was around 3:15 a.m. on Sept. 2 when fire broke out aboard the boat while it was off the coast of Santa Barbara, California. Passengers and crew members in the sleeping quarters were unable to escape and died. Only the captain and four crew members who had been sleeping up top survived. The boat burned and its shell eventually sank.The cause of the fire remains under investigation by a specialized team at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Early on, one possible cause was believed to be lithium ion batteries that were likely being charged to power diving equipment like cameras and lights. In an initial report, the National Transportation Safety Board found all crew members were asleep when the fire broke out. Federal law says somebody must be awake at all times on a commercial boat.Attorneys for the families say Truth Aquatics also did not train its workers adequately and that the two exits — one that was a small hatch above a bunk — were not sufficient for 34 people to escape through smoke and in the middle of the night. “In this case Truth Aquatics chose, through their design of the vessel, to have two means of egress that both led to the same place. And in this case that same place led to the galley where the fire began,” according to Goodman.They argue the company’s employees knew that the boat was unsafe and that the captain should be charged with seaman’s manslaughter. Seaman’s manslaughter is a charge that can be brought against boat captains by federal prosecutors. Two other lawsuits were previously filed by the families of victims. ABC News’ attempts to reach attorneys for Truth Aquatics, the Fritzlers and the boat’s captain have been unsuccessful. Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Commander of Naval Air Force Atlantic Visits USS Dwight D. Eisenhower

Eisenhower View post tag: air Commander of Naval Air Force Atlantic Visits USS Dwight D. Eisenhower View post tag: Atlantic View post tag: Commander The commander of Naval Air Force Atlantic, visited the aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69) (Ike) during the ship’s deployment in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and maritime security in the region, Oct. 16-17.Rear Adm. Ted N. Branch came to Ike to express his gratitude for all the hard work the team has put in to accomplish the mission and to hear from Sailors about how Naval Air Force Atlantic could better equip the force for fleet tasking.While aboard Ike, Branch toured spaces and conducted an all hands call. He also met with senior leadership to get feedback on the readiness levels and operational stresses that the ship and air wing team face while on deployment.“I appreciate what you are doing and the families back home appreciate what you are doing,” said Branch at the all hands call to members of Ike and the air wing. “Everybody back home is pulling for you and I came out here so that you know that.”Branch also expressed to the crew how much he and the Naval Air Force Atlantic command wanted to support to Ike to stay mission ready.“I am here to find out what I can do to help you do your jobs and achieve the mission. I want to know what’s on your mind,” said Branch.Branch also had an opportunity during his visit to participate in a birthday ceremony that commemorated the late President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s birthday and the ship’s commissioning.The ceremony, showcasing the long history of the carrier, displayed the longevity of the Ike throughout the years. Such continued superior performance of the carrier was a testament to the material and training readiness standards that are cornerstones of Naval Air Force Atlantic.“The sacrifices you, the Sailors, make in the heat of this region, supporting the troops on the ground and keeping the sea lanes open, these are the things you do as Sailors in the Navy and you are all doing it well,” said Branch. “Don’t think anyone doesn’t know about the sacrifices you, the Sailor, and your families are making, and don’t think for a second that people don’t appreciate it. It is important work and you are all doing an outstanding job.”Those who attended the all-hands call with Branch were appreciative of his visit.“He explained a lot of what was going on in the Navy,” said Seaman Benny Hernandez from Deck department. “During the all hands call, he gave us a chance to ask a few questions and he put out a lot of important information.”Eisenhower and the squadrons of CVW-7 are deployed to the U.S. 5th Fleet Area of Responsibility conducting maritime security operations, theater security cooperation efforts and support missions as part of Operation Enduring Freedom.[mappress]Naval Today Staff,October 18, 2012; Image: US Navy View post tag: Dwightcenter_img View post tag: D.

Smantha Marie Elhassani, a.k.a. Samantha Sally, 35, will be on probation for three years when she gets out of prison.In 2014, Elhassani’s husband and his brother told her that they wanted to travel to Syria and join ISIS. Federal prosecutors say she helped them by taking gold and cash from the U.S., to Hong Kong and depositing them in a safe deposit boxes.On her final trip to Hong Kong, she traded for tactical gear, including rifle scopes and image stabilizing binoculars. She and her children then went to Turkey and Syria.The feds said she did not declare any of the gold at customs, and had disguised it as jewelry by melting it down.Elhassani was caught in 2018, and returned to the United States by Syrian authorities.“Once again, the Justice Department has held accountable an individual who turned her back on her country to support a terrorist organization,” said Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers. “As Elhassani admitted, she made multiple trips to Hong Kong to smuggle tens of thousands in cash and gold, knowing that the funds would be used to support ISIS in Syria. We repatriated Elhassani from Syria because every nation is responsible for holding its citizens accountable and addressing the future threat they may pose. We will not stop.”“Samantha Elhassani was sentenced today for providing financial support to individuals who desired to support ISIS, a terrorist organization that has committed acts of violence against Americans,” said U.S. Attorney Thomas L. Kirsch II for the Northern District of Indiana. “She traveled with her husband and brother-in-law to Syria, both of whom became ISIS fighters, putting the lives of her children at risk. My office and our law enforcement partners are committed to prosecuting those like Elhassani who provide support to terrorist organizations. ” WhatsApplast_img read more
