No action yet on brawling cricketers in Tamil Nadu Premier League

first_imgTwo days after R Sai Kishore and Jagadeesan Narayan were involved in an on-field brawl during a Tamil Nadu Premier League match, no action has been taken yet on the players by the league or the BCCI. Chapauk Super Gillies spinner R Sai Kishore dismissed Dindigul Dragons batsman Jagadeeshan Narayan and what followed was unbecoming of the players and tarnished the gentleman’s game. Despite dismissing the batsman, Kishore confronted Jagadeeshan and then shockingly even pushed him. This was not just banter or sledging, this was physical contact, this was crossing the line. India international spinner, R Ashwin was at the non-striker’s end and he immediately intervened, asking his teammate to move aside. Ashwin’s experience and actions may have prevented his teammate Narayan from crossing the line himself. The usually calm and composed Ashwin was visibly upset at Kishore’s actions, giving him a piece of his mind and asking him to behave. Soon players and umpires separated the players before things really got out of hand. But for the millions watching the game, this came as a complete shock. “They are very disturbing visuals, but I am glad what Ashwin did. Some sense prevailed with R Ashwin trying to diffuse the situation. But if you think back to what happened between Harbhajan Singh and Sreesanth in the 1st season of the IPL, both players were banned and you have got to do it because physical violence on the cricket field or in fact any field of play in any sport is not acceptable. Whoever that is, however big a player you are, whichever part of the world it is in, a ban has to be imposed. You have got to make an example because youngsters are watching,” says sports historian Boria Majumdar. The scene not just shocked the fans but even left former cricketers fuming. Chetan Chauhan told India Today, “Cricket is becoming more and more professional and players have to give their best. While trying to give their best these incidents happen, people lose temper, people lose control of themselves and they cross the limit which I am absolutely against because there is no room for physical contact in cricket. It is not soccer, it is not wrestling or rugby, cricketers have to behave and stay within the limit. The right thing would be that BCCI should step in and these players should be fined heavily.” Under the ICC Code of Conduct, physical violence on the cricket field is a Level 4 offence and players could be banned for one year or even life, depending on the gravity of the offence. “First of all you have got to immediately suspend the players and then put a disciplinary committee in place which investigates what went on and who was at fault and then maybe ban the guilty player for a year or maybe more than that. You have got to suspend the players and warn them that this kind of behaviour is unacceptable in the future. It is also a case of leniency because if you do not take action then the credibility of the league gets affected,” added Boria Majumdar. To his credit, Ashwin played down the incident post match, saying that such things happen in the heat of the moment while rival captain R Sathish too echoed Ashwin’s sentiments. R Sai Kishore’s Super Gillies may have won the match against Ashwin’s Dindigul Dragons but the win may yet prove to be very costly for the spinner. Even if he is let off this time, any further offence may put his career in jeopardy.advertisementlast_img read more

Wild goose chase bird spending winter at Winnipeg car wash evades capture

VPN and security issues in Morocco

Rabat – Information security and personal confidentiality online are very sensitive issues in today’s world. Even the most democratic countries can’t ensure safe access of its citizens to the world-known web portal. That makes people desperate.Though, in some countries, these issues are even more severe. Morocco is one of such countries. The citizens are unable to surf on the internet freely. The majority of internet resources are simply forbidden to access. The only way out of it is to use the Virtual Private Networks. In order to choose one check the best VPNs for Morocco’s rating 2018, list of the best VPN offers on market.Why VPNs are so important to use in Morocco There are several reasons why usage of VPNs  is extremely needed in Morocco:Morocco is an Islamic country. The Islam forbids many things. Almost everything that Christianity allows, Islam forbids. Therefore for a person, it is just impossible to access the website about Modern Arts with IP address from Morocco. VPN is needed.The authorities put additional restrictions. Morocco is the country of restrictions. So, the authorities forbid access to world famous social media websites, international information resources. That limits the people’s development and knowledge about the latest news in all spheres of life. Though, it is still possible for people from Morocco to access the forbidden websites. In order to do so they have to use Virtual Private Networks. They will allow the access to the domains around the world.What advantages VPNs giveThe VPNs, in fact, offer two most important advantages:personal confidentiality;access to forbidden websites.When the client buys VPN service he can navigate absolutely anonymously in the internet. It happens because his computer IP can’t be detected. Usually, exactly the contrary happens. If the person accesses any website the security governmental agencies can track what information he looks for in the internet. The country in which the client uses internet is also shown. In fact, surfing on Internet without secured VPN accesses is not secured at all. One more important advantage of VPN service is an opportunity to access the website, using the IP address of any country. So, if any website is forbidden in Morocco, the person can access the website with IP address from France.VPNs are crucial to use in today’s world. They are particularly advantageous in countries with so many restrictions as Morocco is. VPN gives an opportunity to get access to:Entertainment content. It is important because often using different IP address is the only way to get to know about new films produced or latest sports matches.News. In such countries as Morocco is, the government intentionally restricts the access of citizens to reliable sources of information. VPNs sort of facilitate the access to information. In some way, VPN stimulates the human’s development in the countries of many restrictions. Virtual Private Networks are extremely important for such countries as Morocco is.Sponsored Content. read more

Ohio State mens soccer advances to NCAA Tournament 2nd round after PK

Members of the OSU and Akron men’s soccer teams face the flag during the national anthem before a Nov. 20 NCAA Tournament 1st round match at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. OSU advanced on penalty kicks, 1-1 (13-12). Credit: Emily Yarcusko / For The Lantern Five rounds of penalty kicks weren’t enough to decide a winner. Nor were six, or 10 or 14.It took a 15-round penalty kick shootout for the Ohio State men’s soccer team to advance past Akron, 1-1 (13-12), in the first round of the NCAA Tournament Thursday night.“I think this result is what being a Buckeye is all about,” redshirt-senior goalkeeper Alex Ivanov said. “We battled through the end, we believed we could do it, we persevered and we did it.”The teams went back-and-forth until Ivanov denied Akron redshirt-freshman midfielder/defender Robby Dambrot to open the 15th round. OSU junior midfielder Zach Mason then put it into the net for his second score of the shootout to put an end to the game.“It’s relieving, and it’s just euphoria after that,” Mason said about his game clincher. “I mean, I don’t even know, I couldn’t even think, it’s just so exciting.”OSU coach John Bluem said the team has been working on penalty kicks since the days leading up to the Big Ten Tournament in preparation for a shootout.“We practice on them every day since the week before postseason play started because any of the postseason games can go to penalty kicks,” Bluem said. “But I think the main thing is just to be confident, pick where you’re going to go, don’t watch the goalkeeper’s doing if he’s jumping back and forth, just pick where you’re going to go and put it right in there.”In all, 30 shots were taken in the shootout, with 25 finding the back of the net. Ivanov said, even of the three stops he made, there is no strategy other than simply guessing.Members of the OSU men’s soccer team celebrate a goal from junior defender Kyle Culbertson (3) during a match against Akron on Nov. 20 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. OSU advanced on penalty kicks, 1-1 (13-12).Credit: Emily Yarcusko / For The Lantern“At that point, you’ve just gotta pick a way and just dive, just get your hands there and make the save as best you can,” Ivanov said.Those 30 penalty kicks were not the only ones taken on the night, either.In the 30th minute, a collision off an Akron corner kick awarded the Zips a penalty shot, served by Akron sophomore midfielder Adam Najem. Najem sent it to the right post, where Ivanov dove, but not in time to stop the shot.“We thought in the first half that we played pretty well, and that it was – I haven’t seen video of it yet – but it was a pretty tough penalty kick call early on there,” Bluem said.The goal was Najem’s 14th of the year, moving him into a tie for third in the nation.OSU had trouble generating much offense in the first half, as it had to play against the strong, cold winds after Akron elected to play with the wind first. The Buckeyes only managed one first-half shot, compared to four for Akron, two of which were on target.However, the teams switched sides in the second half, and the Buckeyes were able to play the final 45 minutes with the wind at their backs.Despite five corner kicks and the majority of the possession in the first 20 minutes of the second half, OSU started slow, not registering a shot until 63rd minute.That first shot might have been all the Buckeyes needed to loosen up.About three minutes later, junior defender Kyle Culbertson received a pass in front of the box off a free kick from junior defender Liam Doyle, and put it into the back of the net for his fourth goal of the season to tie the game.“It was just a set piece,” Culbertson said. “Liam Doyle had a great ball in, and it just fell through the back side. I just wanted to make sure I got solid contact and put it on frame.”The Zips had a chance to regain the lead with just over four minutes left in regulation, when a give-and-go freed up freshman forward Adi Dakwar with a shot at the net, but his shot banged high off the goalpost.OSU freshman forward Marcus McCrary then suffered a similar fate about 90 seconds later, when his shot careened off the Akron goalpost, causing the game to head to overtime.In the first overtime, OSU outshot Akron, 3-1, but none represented any real scoring chance, and the game went to double overtime.Despite a trio of good looks for the Buckeyes in the second overtime, no one could find the back of the net there either. OSU outshot Akron, 3-0, in the period, but the game advanced to penalty kicks.Culbertson originally signed with Akron out of high school before transferring to Columbia, and finally transferring a second time to OSU before the 2013 season. He had to sit out that season because of NCAA double-transfer rules. Despite never playing a game for the Zips, he said he had some extra motivation against his former school.“It’s not a team we like to lose to, an instate rival, especially me, I’m not a big fan having been in an Akron shirt before, I definitely don’t like losing to them,” Culbertson said.The overtime session was the third of the season for Akron, and sixth for OSU.OSU, appearing in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2010 when it advanced to the regional semifinals, now earns the right to face the No. 1 seed in the tournament and defending champion, Notre Dame.However, Bluem said his team’s difficult regular season schedule has adequately prepared it for a game like that.“I think it’s great that we’re going to go play the number-one seed in the country in the tournament,” Bluem said. “We have played one of the most difficult schedules of any team in the country all year long, and we’ve responded pretty well.”Bluem said that missing out on winning the Big Ten championship has motivated his team further.“We kinda feel like there’s still work left to be done, because we missed out on some things that we almost had,” Bluem said. “So now here’s another opportunity, and it’s a great challenge, but it’s a great opportunity, and our guys have been seizing those moments all year long, hopefully we can rise to the occasion and do it one more time.”OSU’s second-round matchup with Notre Dame is scheduled to kick off at 7 p.m. Sunday in South Bend, Ind. read more

Petro Georgious new role

first_imgFormer Federal Liberal MP Petro Georgiou has been appointed Vice-Chancellor’s Professorial Fellow at Monash University and the University of Melbourne in a joint appointment. Georgiou will contribute to various aspects of public life at the two universities including delivering graduate and post graduate seminars, participating in public debate through workshops and public lectures, undertaking academic research and providing advice to relevant faculties, schools and centres. “I’ll be doing some teaching, some public lectures and I’ll be doing some writing on Australian politics and issues of general interest,” Georgiou told Neos Kosmos. “I’m looking forward to that, especially teaching students having been away from that sort of interaction for a very long time.” The former federal member for Kooyong, in Victoria, believes his personal political experience will benefit students interested in the field. “I think there are some really interesting things that could be emphasised a bit more from someone who has actually experienced politics firsthand in a large variety of different roles,” he said. “I’m looking forward to working out the most effective way of communicating that and I’m working on it now.” University of Melbourne Vice-Chancellor Professor Glyn Davis stressed that Mr Georgiou’s appointment would add tremendous expertise and insight into the political landscape. “To have Mr Georgiou working within the university will add immense knowledge and gravitas to not just the School of Social and Political Sciences, but to the University overall,” he said. “Students, staff and the community generally will benefit from the political nous and intimate knowledge of politics that only those who have experienced longstanding and eminent careers in Government can attest to.” Monash Vice-Chancellor Professor Ed Byrne said Monash was pleased and privileged Mr Georgiou has accepted the role of Fellow. “His vast experience within the Australian political landscape will bring enormous depth of knowledge and understanding to the education and research areas of political and social inquiry at Monash,” he said. “Mr Georgiou’s political career has spanned some of the most interesting eras in Australian political history, his work on multiculturalism, immigration policy and civil liberties is well-documented and this, combined with an early career start in academia is breadth of experience that will be of tremendous benefit to both university communities.” Georgiou, who graduated from the University of Melbourne with a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) with a major in Political Science in 1975, begins his appointment this week. During his term serving as the Federal Member for Kooyong from 1994 until 2010, Georgiou was Chair of the Joint Standing Committee on Electoral Matters, Chair of the Joint Standing Committee on Science and Innovation and Deputy Chair of the Joint Statutory Committee on Public Accounts and Audit. He has been a senior advisor to Malcolm Fraser, Andrew Peacock and John Hewson. He was also the Founding Director of the Australian Institute of Multicultural Affairs, State Director of the Liberal Party in Victoria from 1989 to 1994 and Director of the Liberal Policy Unit from 1985 until 1989.

Woman son displaced by house fire in Rose Village

first_imgA fire trapped inside the walls of a Rose Village neighborhood home forced the evacuation early Tuesday of a woman and her son.The fire originated near the wood stove of the home at 3615 Q St. and spread through the molding and into the wall. Firefighters were dispatched to the home at 7:22 a.m. and arrived 12 minutes later.They saw smoke coming out of the attic and quickly zeroed in on the wall, said Capt. David James of the Vancouver Fire Department. James said the fire was under control at 7:51 a.m.The residents will be staying with relatives in the area, James said. Firefighters remained on the scene after the fire was put out to ensure it didn’t reignite.The preliminary damage estimate was $60,000 to the structure and $15,000 to contents. The residents do not have renter’s insurance.An investigator with the Vancouver Fire Marshal’s Office told James the fire likely could have been prevented if the chimney had been cleaned and inspected within the last year.The home is owned by Robert and Ruth Ankenbauer.Names of the occupants were not available.last_img read more

The Increasing Value of Audience Data in B2b Media

first_img“Back in 2011 we decided to abandon our traditional off-the-shelf software, which was over-priced and under-performing, and designed our own internal system we call iSIRC,” says Marco Urbanic, director of integrated data at GIE Media. “It’s an audience development and circulation fulfillment platform coupled with a front-end product called Target Market Intelligence.”That front-end component is the key ingredient. While the core database is capable of marrying data compiled from the full spectrum of product platforms in real time—web engagement, event attendance, print audience, webinars and so on—TMI’s interface allows the business team controlled access to the data to wade through and perform queries on demographics for sales clients. GIE quickly discovered another opportunity to extend the availability of the TMI front end. “We didn’t do this to license it, but when we were finished, everyone who saw it said they could use it,” says Urbanic. The company began licensing TMI to advertising clients who pay a monthly subscription fee for access to GIE audience data. “Advertisers can log in via a web browser, select a targeted list of people and download it for mail or email. It’s supposed to be a target market. If it’s a blast, well that’s just a list rental. But if they want to do a specific, targeted campaign, that’s where TMI comes into play,” says Urbanic.That activity has been a key ROI component—Urbanic says GIE invested between $250,000 to $500,000 on the project, which took almost 15 months to fully implement. ADS Global took notice when GIE spun off a separate data company, GIE Data Solutions. GIE didn’t necessarily want to get into the customer service and customization work, and ADS was attracted for exactly those reasons. The company now builds bespoke iSIRC solutions for publisher clients. “The reason we decided to license it is because we can customize it,” says Heidi Spangler, ADS Global’s vice president. “The knowledge that we have combined with the software creates a customized solution so you don’t have to settle for things that you don’t want or need.”Vendome needed a solution that would help supplement decreasing display advertising. “With print in decline across the B2B industry, we were looking for alternatives to make up that lost revenue,” says Mark Fried, Vendome’s president. ADS, who had been providing other services to Vendome, suggested licensing the iSIRC software. The custom approach that Spangler mentioned resulted in VALET, a system with a similar code base to GIE’s but with new features and functionality behind a Vendome-branded product.While the fully integrated marketing database has helped Vendome build out its event assets and audience, the company is embarking on a similar data subscription strategy as GIE. “Traditional B2B models are all product-focused—print, events and so on,” says Fried. “But VALET disintermediates our audience from our products. You don’t have to go through our products to get to our audience. The best way to see our audience is to go into our database and see it. I want to give our clients access to that data to see how our audience interacts with our products.”It’s a bit of a radical notion for Vendome. Fried points out that even as publishers have invested so much into their audience data collection and management, they’ve always held it close to the vest. “We’ve all invested heavily in data and what I’m saying is let’s make that investment worth something.”Fried says this approach “totally cannibalizes” email list rental, but it’s “more useful and [lucrative].”Vendome is positioning VALET as a high-end subscription product, selling 3- to 6-month subscription commitments to its audience data.In addition to traditional demographic metrics and company and title data, VALET offers data on topics of interest, event attendance and other engagement-oriented metrics. Demographic data can also be seen on a market level and presented in a graphical view. It ultimately comes down to data quality—selling lists is one thing, selling engagement and segmentation is another. “People are looking for a way to monetize data,” says Ron McKay, CEO of ADS Global. “We’re not necessarily providing access for people to pull lists, but to look at the data and see what’s unique about it. Everyone is much more focused on targeting and quality and capturing that. A product like VALET allows a media company the rewards of showing what they’ve spent years compiling.” Proprietary technology development is not limited to just the big publishers. The build-or-buy question is a perennial one that small to mid-market publishers make as well. And for one that decided on the build option, the results have gone much better than expected. GIE Media, a B2B publisher targeting multiple markets such as recycling, energy and golf course maintenance, has built its home-grown audience development and circulation fulfillment platform into a subscription-based data product that’s used by its advertisers. More recently, it’s been licensed by ADS Global, an audience development services provider, which is now further customizing the platform for other publishers to use. Vendome Healthcare Media is one of its first customers.last_img read more

Haiti bus crash kills 38

first_imgMap showing Gonaives where a bus speeding away from one accident plowed into a crowd killing 38 people Sunday. AFPA bus speeding away from a hit-and-run accident plowed into dozens of street musicians in northern Haiti on Sunday, killing 38 people, officials said.Another 13 people were injured in the crash which took place just before 4 am (0900 GMT) in Gonaives, a city of some 300,000 people located about 150 kilometers (90 miles) northwest of the capital Port-au-Prince.“We were in the band, having fun! And then the bus passed by crushing people,” says Jean-Renald Edouard, lying on an emergency room bed.“He hit me on the hip, and I fell down hard. After that, everything went black,” said the 26-year-old man, his girlfriend at his bedside.First, the bus plowed into two pedestrians, killing one and injuring the other, according to Marie-Alta Jean Baptiste, head of Haiti’s civil protection office.The driver of the Blue Sky bus then rammed into three groups of street musicians as he tried to speed away, leaving a scene of ghastly carnage.The number of injured was initially 17, but four victims later died at the hospital, the national police in Gonaives said.Police were forced to control an angry crowd after the grisly incident. Drivers in Haiti who are involved in accidents rarely stop at the scene because they fear attack by local mobs seeking to extract vigilante justice.“The people who were not victims of the accident tried to burn the bus with the passengers inside,” said Faustin Joseph, civic protection coordinator for the department of Artibonite, where Gonaives, the regional capital, is located.The Blue Sky bus line, a private company offering long-distance routes, is an upscale option for travel in Haiti with modern, air-conditioned coaches.Most Haitians generally travel on former American school buses which ply the roads, making frequent stops.Authorities initially said they had detained the bus driver, but he had actually fled the scene, Gonaives traffic chief Jeudy Lisate told AFP. Police were still trying to identify him.InvestigationIt’s not known what caused the crash, which occurred on a straight stretch of a national road without any potholes.On Sunday afternoon, a heavily damaged car was seen in a ditch on the side of the road, but the accident scene had otherwise been cleaned up.In a statement Haitian President Jovenel Moise “expressed his deep sadness following the terrible accident.”“The head of state conveys, on behalf of the whole government, his sincere condolences to the families and those close to the victims,” the statement read.Moise called for “an investigation as soon as possible to shed light on this tragedy.”After the first hit-and-run incident, the driver may have panicked and tried to run, one police officer said privately, not wanting to interfere with an ongoing investigation.At La Providence hospital, family members stood by as many survivors of the accident were still in shock.At least one witness said from his hospital bed that the bus did not have its lights on—which might have been part of the driver’s fatal escape bid.One woman was hoping to keep the number of grandchildren killed in the tragedy to one.Guerda Fenelus swatted flies to keep them from resting on the face of her unconscious grandson Peterson.“One of my granddaughters was killed by this bus. And he is here. He still has not spoken—he is alive because he is on oxygen,” the 61-year-old woman said.“I am suffering so much from seeing him that way. And it is his silence that kills me. If he spoke, I could have hope,” Fenelus sighed.last_img read more

3 opposition lawmakers in Kyrgyzstan found guilty

Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Top Stories Sponsored Stories Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenixcenter_img The difference between men and women when it comes to pain Comments   Share   BISHKEK, Kyrgyzstan (AP) – A court in Kyrgyzstan on Friday found three nationalist opposition lawmakers guilty of attempting to violently overthrow the government, but sentenced them to relatively short prison terms.The three were arrested in October after protesters clashed with police and tried to break into a building housing the parliament and government offices in Kyrgyzstan’s capital, Bishkek.The disturbances arose from a rally to demand the nationalization of an economically vital gold mine. Prosecutors had asked for sentences of up to 10 years in prison. But the judge sentenced nationalist leader Kamchibek Tashiyev and one other defendant to 18 months in prison, while the third defendant received a one-year sentence.About 400 of Tashiyev’s supporters rallied outside the courthouse on Friday calling for him to be freed, and riot police were called in to maintain order. His supporters have held numerous protests since the trial began in January.Tashiyev’s overt nationalism is viewed by some as a destabilizing factor in a country that has been riven by ethnic discord. Hundreds of people died in clashes in 2010 between ethnic Kyrgyz and Uzbek communities in the south of the Central Asian country, where Tashiyev draws much of his support.Kyrgyzstan has seen the overthrow of two governments since it gained independence as the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991.Because in Kyrgyzstan each day in detention counts as two days toward a prison sentence, Tashiyev and Sadyr Zhaparov will be due for release in six months. The third defendant, Talant Mamytov, will finish serving his sentence in April.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
