Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara difference between India-Australia: Justin Langer


first_imgAustralian coach Justin Langer has lamented a lack of world-class batsmen in his side’s line-up and pointed out that Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara have been the difference for the visitors in the on-going four-match Test series.India won the third Test at the MCG by 131 runs to take an unassailable 2-1 lead in the series. The fourth Test begins in Sydney Thursday.”At this stage, the difference in the series is Pujara and Kohli, if we’re frank. Pujara averages 53 and Kohli has averaged 46 and got a duck in the second innings. The lesson we learn from that is he just absorbed all our pressure,” Langer said Monday.”It’s the art of batting, isn’t it? It’s about absorbing pressure. You’ve got so much time in Test cricket, and I guess in the (T20) world we live in, everything is so instant and so quick and talk about strike rates. Our guys are learning that, or hopefully they’re learning that. If they don’t we’ll keep having performances like we’re having,” he said.Langer blamed the first innings batting flop-show — 151 all out — for Australia’s defeat in the third Test at the MCG.”It was a really tough Test match. I’ve said from day one it’s going to be a real arm wrestle the Test series and it feels like that. It has been tough, we probably got the worst of the conditions in this Test match and our first innings batting particularly was not up to the work we put into it. We feel disappointed and tired, but we are getting ready to refresh and get ready for the fourth one,” he added.advertisementDefeat in Melbourne has opened up old wounds for Australia who are now obviously struggling in the absences of banned duo of David Warner and Steve Smith. They have various points to ponder over, including the form of opener Aaron Finch as well as middle-order composition with both Peter Handscomb and Mitchell Marsh out of form.Langer said the relative inexperience of the Australian batting line-up was starting to show as the series heads towards its culmination.”He (Finch) is having a bit of a lean run of it although he has got a couple of fifties. He got a 100 run partnership one Test match ago and that set up the whole Test match for us. Finch is a really good player and he is working harder probably than he has ever worked. He has got to somehow recharge his batteries over and over again. It is a great challenge for him at the moment and he will be better I think,” said the coach.”With these guys one of the hardest things about Test cricket is one of the distractions so they are learning on the run actually. We will be collectively better for it. We have just got to make sure we stay in this contest and be great to have a win at the end of it. India have come here determined to win this series, we know that, and we see that in everything they have done since day one. It would be nice for us to send them home drawing the series, not winning it,” he added.Leg-spin all-rounder Marnus Labuschagne has been called up to the Test squad as Australia anticipates another slow track in Sydney. Langer said that their bowling attack needs a more favourable situation playing at home.”I love playing at the WACA and I love playing at the Adelaide Oval with a bit of pace and bounce. All the years we have gone to India we have not had too many bouncy wickets, and it usually spins square. But it is also our way in Australia to just produce the best wickets we can.”We are interested to see what we are going to get in Sydney next week. We are not sure it has been a bit inconsistent. India played a practice game there and it was very flat. In the Shield game there a few weeks ago it was very flat. We certainly hope it is not. In Melbourne the last couple of days were more of a contest and it was because the wicket deteriorated and you want to see a good contest,” said the former opening batsman.”We will definitely have a look at the wicket (before selection decisions). There are lots of discussion about how the wicket is going to be, is it going to spin, is it green, we are not sure yet. Have a look at that and then make some decisions next couple of days. From Australian perspective you have got three of the best fast bowlers in the world and a gun spinner, so you would like to see a bit more bounce,” Langer said.advertisementAlso Read | Virat Kohli’s 2018: 2735 international runs, 11 hundreds and 4 overseas Test winsAlso Read | Rohit Sharma to return home after daughter’s birth, will miss Sydney TestAlso Read | The Pant and Paine show at MCG: When light-hearted banter turned offensivelast_img read more

Asked whether Defoe would be part of his squad after the January transfer window, Howe replied: “It’s a difficult one to answer.“I couldn’t give an absolute clear black and white answer to a lot of the players in the squad. The ones who aren’t playing regularly are very keen for football.“I will have to sit down with Jermain and have that conversation.“He is someone we hold in such high regard and has done such a great job here in many different ways.“Even before the game against Chelsea, he was talking to Lys (Mousset) and giving Lys his experience and guidance.

New hopes on the menu


first_imgNow that Narendra Modi has just won the biggest election in history, the verdict seems to be an intoxicating one, leaving behind narratives of personal attack and random slander. To us, the people of India, the totality of impressions has overtaken the underlying anxieties coupled with invigorated effectiveness. Modi is certainly a charismatic campaigner and with hope back on the menu, it is for us to witness how he handles this unambiguous but ‘frightening’ verdict. It is also important to understand the Opposition’s stance. There were major upheavals and upsets including Amethi snapping its 39-year-old ties with the Gandhi family and handing in defeat to Rahul Gandhi who tried his best to cheer up his party workers by saying: “Ours was an ideological battle and the people chose the ideology of the BJP. I want to say thanks to the Congress workers who fought valiantly. Even today I want to say that no matter what anyone accuses me of, I will continue to reciprocate with love. Love is never defeated.” True, love is never defeated, more so in mind and spirit! And “every experience shapes us and helps us grow, no matter how small it is.” Rahul indeed put up a brave face after he lost both Amethi and India. Several heavyweights suffered losses including Jyotiraditya Scindia, Sheila Dikshit, former Prime Minister HD Deve Gowda, Digvijay Singh, Mallikarjun Kharge who suffered first electoral defeat in his career, Ajay Maken, Shatrughan Sinha, Nabam Tuki, Veerappa Moily, Ashok Chavan and many others. Today, we stand at a juncture where certain moments, events and incidents in the life of India will shape its future destiny. In the context of Bengal, BJP’s victory in Mamata bastion is more an ideological dream rather than an electoral win. And after May 23, an accomplished leader like Mamata Banerjee is quite aware of the daunting challenges that lie ahead. Even in the midst of this difficult fight that she has combated in an extremely long election spanning across seven phases, she has managed to retain some of her followers. But apart from the anti-incumbency, she has also had to deal with bitter infighting, massive erosion of organisation at the grassroots level and allegations of grim poll-time violence. What needs to be seen is whether this consummate leader is able to keep her flock together and shed the ‘proverbial’ backpacks and ‘leave it by the River’ as a fresh dispensation needs to be adopted to understand the people’s narrative of politics and leadership.last_img read more


Canada resisting UN request to extend Mali mission Sources


first_imgOTTAWA — The Trudeau government is reportedly resisting a United Nations request to extend Canada’s peacekeeping mission in Mali so medical evacuations can continue while replacements for Canada’s personnel arrive.Canada has eight helicopters and 250 military members in the sprawling West African nation to rescue injured peacekeepers and transport troops and their equipment.The yearlong mission is scheduled to end in July, at which point the Canadians will pack up and start heading home.Sources tell The Canadian Press that Romania is expected to take over from Canada, but that the Romanians likely won’t arrive until October or November — months after the Canadians have left.The UN previously turned to civilian helicopters to fill a month-long gap before the Canadian peacekeepers arrived in Mali last August, but this gap will be longer.UN officials have also previously said that civilian helicopters aren’t able to provide the same level of medical support as military aircraft and are more restricted in when and where they can operate.The Canadian Presslast_img read more


Canada closely following reports of attacks on journalists in Russia Freeland


first_imgMONTREAL — Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland says she will speak out about the lack of media freedom in Russia during a  conference that Canada is co-hosting next month with Great Britain.Her comments Monday came the same day as Russia’s three major newspapers — in a rare show of solidarity — put out nearly identical front pages to support a detained journalist.Prominent investigative reporter Ivan Golunov was beaten and kept in custody for 12 hours without a lawyer after he was stopped by police in Moscow last Thursday, according to his lawyer. He faces drug dealing charges he alleges are fabricated by the police.Freeland, a journalist before she entered politics, told reporters, “We are following the current situation in Russia very closely and with great interest and attention.”She and British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt are hosting an international conference on media freedom in London in mid-July. Freeland said the event will bring up “specific cases” around the world where the lives of journalists are at risk but wouldn’t go into details.“We will be talking at that conference about media freedom — or lack of it — in Russia, among other countries,” she said, following a talk at the International Economic Forum of the Americas in Montreal.“This will be the first of what becomes an annual event,” Freeland continued, adding Canada has committed to hosting the second conference next year.Kommersant, Vedomosti and RBK, among the most respected daily newspapers in Russia, published a joint editorial Monday under the headline, “I am/We are Ivan Golunov,” calling for a transparent probe into the case.The papers dismissed evidence presented against the journalist. Russia’s media landscape is fragmented, and such a show of solidarity in the media is rarely seen. All three papers have faced pressure from authorities and covert censorship.The circumstances of the journalist’s arrest have alarmed the media community. In an apparent attempt to portray Golunov as a professional drug dealer, police on Friday released several photos, reportedly from Golunov’s home, of what appeared to be a drugs lab before they retracted the statement, saying that the pictures were taken elsewhere.According to the Committee to Protect Journalists, 58 reporters have been killed in Russia between 1992 and 2019. One of the more famous cases involved Anna Politkovskaya, renowned for her critical coverage of the Russian military’s invasion and occupation of Chechnya. She was shot dead in her apartment building in 2006.Also on Monday, the Raoul Wallenberg Centre for Human Rights along with a coalition of other international groups produced a report claiming the number of political prisoners in Russia increased from 50 to almost 300 in the last four years.Former Canadian justice minister and Raoul Wallenberg Centre chairman, Irwin Cotler, said in a statement the report “exposes and unmasks” the Russian government’s “culture of corruption and criminality.”Cotler said the report identifies “the individual architects of this repression” and called on the Canadian government to impose targeted financial sanctions and travel bans on them.Those identified include President Vladimir Putin, Alexander Bortnikov, director of the federal security service, and Aleksandr Konovalov, minister of justice.Freeland spoke of her “tremendous respect” for Cotler and said she would study the report “with great interest.”She said Canada has already imposed sanctions on an “extensive list” of Russian officials “and we are constantly reviewing … our sanctions and will continue to do that.”— With files from The Associated PressGiuseppe Valiante, The Canadian Presslast_img read more


Militarys secondincommand to resign links decision with Mark Norman case


first_imgOTTAWA — The military’s second-in-command, Lt.-Gen. Paul Wynnyk, is resigning.The move, which is effective on Aug. 9, comes only weeks after the federal government agreed to a settlement with Wynnyk’s predecessor, Vice-Admiral Mark Norman.It was believed at that time that Wynnyk would remain as the Canadian Forces’ vice-chief of the defence staff for the foreseeable future.But in a letter obtained by Global News, Wynnyk reportedly links his resignation to an attempt by the military’s top officer, Gen. Jonathan Vance, to reinstate Norman.Wynnyk writes that Vance asked him shortly after the breach-of-trust case against Norman was dropped in May to step down before reversing course following the government’s settlement with Norman.But Wynnyk says when Vance asked him to stay on, he declined.Wynnyk’s departure represents the latest round of turmoil for the Canadian Forces following Norman’s suspension in January 2017.The Canadian Presslast_img read more


UN partnership with parliamentarians key to building better world – Annan


“You can help build the national consensus and bridges of international understanding that are necessary for international action,” Mr. Annan said in a message scheduled to be delivered by Jose Antonio Ocampo, Executive Secretary of the UN Economic Community of Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) to the 108th conference of the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU).Today’s meeting “ushered in a new era” in the already long-standing cooperation between the UN and the IPU, Mr. Annan said, addressing the group of international lawmakers for the first time since the General Assembly granted the IPU observer status last November. That, he added, was a significant acknowledgment of the important role parliamentarians played in bringing the work of the United Nations closer to the people it serves.”The reinforcement of the relationship between our two organizations represents an important element in the effort to improve interaction between the United Nations and civil society, the Secretary-General said, noting that the assembly had also supported his intention to establish a Panel of Eminent persons on United Nations Relations with Civil Society, to be chaired by former Brazilian President Fernando Henrique Cardoso.”Parliamentarians embody the will of the people who have elected them to speak on their behalf and promote their needs and aspirations,” Mr. Annan said, adding that along with supplying a place where “the dynamism of civil society meets the responsibility of governments” to translate ideas into legalization, parliaments also had the power to ensure effective follow-up to international agreements at home.”For my part,” the Secretary-General said, “I will continue my efforts to make the United Nations an institution responsive to the peoples in whose name it was established, and to pursue our engagement with parliamentarians and other actors in civil society.” read more


Malaysia releases Kim Jong Nams body in deal ending spat with


By Joseph Sipalan and Rozanna Latiff | KUALA LUMPURA van believed to be carrying the body of Kim Jong Nam, leaves the Kuala Lumpur Hospital. Kyodo/via REUTERSMalaysia put the body of the estranged half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on a plane to Pyongyang on Thursday, in a deal that secured the release of its citizens there and ended a drawnout diplomatic spat.U.S. and South Korean intelligence sources say North Korea masterminded the deadly attack on Kim Jong Nam last month using VX nerve agent, a chemical so toxic that it is on a U.N. list of weapons of mass destruction.The attack outraged Malaysia and sparked a diplomatic row with North Korea, resulting in travel bans on both sides and a collapse in their long-standing friendly ties.Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said the nine Malaysians barred from leaving North Korea had been allowed to board a plane out, adding on Twitter that they were expected to reach Kuala Lumpur at 5 a.m. local time on Friday (2100 GMT Thursday).The Malaysians left Pyongyang in a Royal Malaysian Air Force business jet, which headed immediately west out of North Korean airspace before turning south toward Malaysia, according to flight tracking website planefinder.net.“Following the completion of the autopsy on the deceased and receipt of a letter from his family requesting the remains be returned to North Korea, the coroner has approved the release of the body,” Najib said in a statement.The statement did not mention Kim by name. Kim was assassinated at Kuala Lumpur airport on Feb 13.Earlier, sources told Reuters authorities were preparing to transport Kim’s body on Malaysia Airlines flight MH360 to Beijing. That flight lands in Beijing after midnight.The swap agreement brings to an end nearly seven weeks of diplomatic standoff between the formerly friendly countries.Najib has said the return of the nine Malaysians in Pyongyang was Malaysia’s priority.North Korea had been demanding the handover of Kim’s body and that three remaining suspects inside its embassy be returned to Pyongyang in exchange for an end to the travel ban on Malaysians, diplomatic sources have said.It was not immediately clear if the suspects were also allowed to leave Malaysia, although some local media reported that they were taking the same flight to Beijing.Kim Jong Nam, the eldest son of the late North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, had spoken out publicly against his family’s dynastic control of the isolated, nuclear-armed nation.The young, unpredictable Kim Jong Un had issued a “standing order” for his elder half-brother’s assassination, and there was a failed attempt in 2012, according to some South Korean lawmakers.RELATIONS REAFFIRMEDMalaysian police say Kim was killed by two women who smeared the super toxic nerve agent VX on his face. An Indonesian woman and a Vietnamese woman have been charged.North Korea reacted angrily when the Malaysian authorities identified North Korean suspects and sought to question others including a diplomat at their embassy in Kuala Lumpur.Pyongyang has maintained that the body was that of Kim Chol as stated in his passport, and not Kim Jong Nam.Malaysia expelled North Korea’s ambassador for being “diplomatically rude”, although Najib later said that ties with Pyongyang would not be severed, in a bid to calm relations.A statement by the North Korean government released simultaneously said both countries managed to “resolve issues arising from the death of a DPRK national” in Malaysia at a meeting in Kuala Lumpur.DPRK stands for North Korea’s official name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.“The importance of bilateral relations was reaffirmed. In this connection, both countries agreed to positively discuss the re-introduction of the visa-free system and work toward bringing the relations to a higher level,” read the statement from North Korea.Malaysia imposed a travel ban on North Koreans leaving the Southeast Asian country in a tit-for-tat move after Pyongyang barred Malaysians from leaving its borders.Najib said on Thursday that North Koreans will now be allowed to leave Malaysia.(Additional reporting by James Pearson and Liz Lee; Writing by Praveen Menon; Editing by Nick Macfie and Hugh Lawson) Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)RelatedKim Jong-nam killing: Senior N Korea diplomat named as suspectFebruary 22, 2017In “World”Airport killing seen on CCTV, probe strains Malaysia-North Korea tiesFebruary 20, 2017In “World”Kim Jong-nam death: Malaysia police hold female suspectFebruary 15, 2017In “World” read more

Austin City Council Votes to Move Forward with Major League Soccer Stadium


first_img Share COURTESY OF PRECOURT SPORTS VENTURESAn artist’s rendering of a soccer stadium at McKalla Place in North Austin.The Austin City Council voted to move ahead in negotiations with Major League Soccer and Precourt Sports Ventures to build a 20,000-seat stadium near the Domain.The 7-4 decision came after about five hours of discussion during a special session Wednesday. Council members worked through several amendments related to parking, transportation, affordable housing and youth soccer programs. “I can’t wait until we are all wearing the same jersey,” Mayor Steve Adler said before the vote. In addition to Adler, Delia Garza, Pio Renteria, Greg Casar, Ann Kitchen, Jimmy Flannigan and Kathie Tovo voted yes. Under the deal, Precourt, which owns the Columbus Crew, would build the stadium on the property and then rent it back from the city.Precourt announced last fall that it wanted to move the MLS team from Ohio to Austin, citing poor business conditions in Columbus. Precourt initially asked for a stadium site on parkland near Lady Bird Lake, but after pushback from the community and others, it settled on McKalla Place, a 24-acre site in North Austin.The council’s vote on the stadium has created a lot of drama over the last 10 months.Council Member Leslie Pool led a charge against the proposed location, bringing other issues like affordable housing and transportation into the debate. When the deal was set for a vote in July, she asked council to consider alternative proposals for developing the McKalla Place site. Just before the vote Thursday, she added a number of amendments to the terms city staff had negotiated, forcing a vote to be postponed until today.Today’s vote is not the end of the discussion. The city must also decide if the deal will be handed over to staff for final approval or if council will get the final OK. Also unknown is when the stadium contract will be finalized and where the Crew will train and play during the next MLS season.Austin is the largest U.S. metro region without a top-tier professional sports team.last_img read more


Polytron predicts glass smartphones by end of year w Video


first_img More information: www.polytronix.com/privacyglass_tech.html Citation: Polytron predicts glass smartphones by end of year (w/ Video) (2013, February 17) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-02-polytron-glass-smartphones-year.html The phone is being showcased in its early stages; there is no software running on the prototype. The goal is to get OEMs motivated enough to consider what this technology can offer. Polytron is anticipating that handset makers will want to build products with its special glass. As the prototype reveals, not all of the phone components are invisible; one can see the batteries, camera, and cards. In future design phases, when the phone proceeds further toward production, the plan is to hide the visible components with a darker cover. The glass technology behind this prototype phone is the company’s special glass which can transform itself from a cloudy-white, translucent barrier to an optically clear state. The company explains how this works. Explore further “The ordinary refractive index of these liquid crystal does not match that of the polymer, and the incident light is thus scattered, resulting in a translucent state. When an electric field is applied across the material, the PDLC droplets re-orient so that the extraordinary refractive index of the liquid crystal matches that of the polymer. Therefore, the incident light can pass through, resulting in a transparent state.”Consumer attraction toward modern design and consumer delight in the novelty of owning a glass phone cannot be dismissed, but a research director at Current Analysis noted that, despite the novelty, the glass phone realistically can hope to sell if the display quality is up to par with the best of today’s AMOLED and LCD screens.Polytron Technologies, meanwhile, has also produced a transparent USB memory stick that will go into production soon. The USB stick will come in 8, 16, and 32GB choices. The USB has an embedded LED so that the user knows it is connected and working. There was no information on pricing. A prototype transparent phone.center_img (Phys.org)—Polytron Technologies confidently says that this could be the very year that smartphone featuring transparent glass are available. Taiwan-based Polytron Technologies says the phones could arrive in late 2013. The company, which focuses on electronic and optical-vision glass, is a subsidiary of U.S.-based Polytronix.

He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes.

She spoke on the theme of diversity and how to break down the barriers between various minorities, male-female, religion, national origin, etc. She gave many photo examples of how we pigeon hole people into neat categories and that we often say we have equally in society, however her images showed recent images of big political summits where there are no women present, or they were the secretaries in the background. She said in medical practice, department administration and collaboration on projects, people need to be cognoscente of bias they have engrained by culture for which they may not even be aware.She showed a slide of the AAPM membership makeup by generation and said members need to keep in mind the way each generation thinks and communicates varies by their generation’s life experience and upbringing. McCollough said understanding these differences can help bridge perceived gaps in communication. Find more news and videos from AAPM.

The idea is to improve workflow and allow the tech to remain at the bedside longer to be with the patient, rather tucked away in a remote control room using an intercom.The entire system is built into the gantry seen here, so there is no need for extra equipment in a closet, cabinet or server tower.It comes in a 128 slice configuration with 4 cm of anatomical coverage per rotation.It uses the Stellar detector and tin filtration to eliminate low energy photons and help lower dose. It can be programmed to aid workflow by automatically removing bone, create cured planar reconstructions, lung CAD and other post-processing features so more time can be spent on reading scans. The scanner also comes with a HeartFlow FFR-CT starter pack.Find more information on this system in these related articles:New Cardiovascular CT Technology Entering the MarketNew Technology Highlights on the ACC 2019 Exhibit Floor Artificial Intelligence | July 12, 2019 VIDEO: The Economics of Artificial Intelligence Khan Siddiqui, M.D., founder and CEO of HOPPR, discusses the economic advantages and costs presented by artificial intelligence (AI) applications in radiology, as well as potential strategies for healthcare providers looking to add AI to their armamentarium, at the 2019 Society of Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) annual meeting.

HR McMaster the lieutenant general who endured


first_img H.R. McMaster, the lieutenant general who endured a troubled year as President Donald Trump’s national security adviser, has a book deal.HarperCollins Publishers told The Associated Press on Wednesday that McMaster’s “Battlegrounds” is scheduled for 2020. The book will cover his 34-year military career and his time in the Trump administration. Trump repeatedly clashed with McMaster and in March announced that he was replacing him with John Bolton. McMaster had been appointed national security adviser in February 2017 after Michael Flynn was forced out over his contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.Financial terms were not disclosed for the book, an election-year release which likely will offer a much tougher portrait of the president than upcoming memoirs by former administration officials Sean Spicer and Anthony Scaramucci, both of whom have spoken warmly of Trump.McMaster, who has since retired from the military, is planning to write about the “gravest geopolitical challenges” of our time. He said in a statement issued through his publisher that he was “looking forward to researching and writing about the greatest challenges to the free world and how we can work together with like-minded nations to seize opportunities, defeat threats to security, and preserve our way of life.”McMaster is also known as the author of “Dereliction of Duty: Lyndon Johnson, Robert McNamara, The Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Lies that Led to Vietnam,” an acclaimed work published by HarperCollins in 1997. by Hillel Italie, The Associated Press Posted Jul 11, 2018 10:48 am PDT Last Updated Jul 11, 2018 at 3:00 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email FILE – This Jan. 25, 2018 file photo shows then National Security Adviser H.R.
