The death certificate of Alimuddin Ansari, who was lynched by a mob of cow vigilantes in Ramgarh district in June last year, will be issued by the Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) in Ranchi, a district official said.“We have already forwarded a letter to the RIMS authorities in this regard and Alimuddin Ansari’s death certificate will be issued from there,” said Anant Kumar, Sub-Divisional Officer, Ramgarh, when his reaction was sought on a report published in a section of media in this regard on Sunday. The media report said that the police were yet to submit a report to establish where he died a crucial piece of information that has denied Alimuddin’s family his death certificate.Procedure explained The SDO Ramgarh said the district authorities had explained the procedure to get the death certificate to the victim’s widow and son and said they would be visiting the RIMS soon to get it. “They will get Alimuddin’s death certificate from the RIMS, if they approached the RIMS authority,” Mr. Kumar added. However, Alimuddins wife Mariyam Khatoon said, “We had approached the RIMS in Ranchi for getting the death certificate but the authorities refused to issue it saying that Alimuddin was brought dead and the RIMS issues death certificates only for patients who died in the hospital.

On the eve of the high-octane ICC Champions Trophy semi-final against Bangladesh at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground here on Thursday, India skipper Virat Kohli hinted at retaining the same playing XI which trounced South Africa in their final Group B game at The Oval on Sunday.In the run-up to the ICC Champions Trophy, India thrashed Bangladesh by 240 runs in a warm-up match, thanks to three-wicket hauls from the pace duo of Umesh Yadav and Bhuvneshwar Kumar but Kohli on Wednesday backed off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin’s inclusion in the playing XI.”We gave a lot of people chances in the practice games and everyone bowled well in that game but that does not mean that you will necessarily play against that particular opposition. Ashwin was brilliant in the last game, I don’t see any good reason to change that,” Kohli told reporters here.”The team played really well, it was a complete performance and I certainly don’t feel that there is any need to change.”Asked whether past results will boost the morale of the men-in-blue in the high pressure game, Kohli quickly pointed out that the team’s mindset does not change from game to game.”We are not going to go with what past results have done going into a big game like this. We are going to treat it like how we treated the last game and our mindset does not differ,” he said.”We have been in these kinds of games quite a few times before but there are no guarantees in this sport. We have seen during the league stages itself that a lot of teams have surprised the opposition.”advertisement”We are not, certainly not, taking anything for granted. We will use whatever momentum we have gained in the tournament to execute in the match,” he added.Terming Bangladesh a “very dangerous” side, the 28-year-old Kohli credited the opposition with rising to the challenge in big matches.Bangladesh outplayed New Zealand in their final Group A tie to qualify for the semi-finals of the Champions Trophy, their first appearance in the last-four stage of any major ICC tournament.”It’s no surprise that they are doing really well and have improved their cricket. Credit to their set-up and the kind of players who are taking more responsibility.””They are a very dangerous side on their day. No one can take their opposition for granted and Bangladesh have taken huge strides,” Kohli said.Asked whether the lack of exposure to the lower order batting will affect the side in case of a crisis situation, Kohli said: “No, that’s not a concern, obviously as a batsman you want to finish off games. Everyone has batted well in the practice games and we know Kedar (Jadhav) and Hardik (Pandya) are playing really well at the moment.””So we are not bothered at all. Rather they are looking for an opportunity, if the team is in a sort of trouble, I am sure those two guys are going to step up along with Jadeja (Ravindra) and Ashwin.”Kohli also congratulated veteran batsman Yuvraj Singh, who will play his 300th One-day International (ODI) on Thursday and hoped that the southpaw will contribute in a special way in the big match.”I congratulate him and wish him all the very best and hopefully he can play a lot more for us and get in those match-winning performances all over again and I hope tomorrow is a special one for him.””Yuvraj’s contribution to Indian cricket has been outstanding. He has been a total match winner for India, won us so many big tournaments and series and this is just a testimony to the kind of talent he possess,” he added.
NEW YORK – You don’t have to be a baseball fan to know that August 23 was a special day in the world of sports. The number 6 worn by former New York Yankee manager Joseph Paul Torre will never be worn by another member of New York’s American League baseball team.The day brought smiles and some tears – not only to Yankee fans – at the game between the Yankees and the Chicago White Sox and sports fans across the country.The ceremony in the Bronx signified two things: the end of an era – the last of the core of great Yankees managed by Torre, Derek Jeter, retires this year – and a refutation of the phrase “nice guys finish last,” often miss-attributed to another successful but more volatile baseball manager, the late Leo Durocher.The team America loves to hate but which produces stars that also evoke universal reverence also unveiled a plaque that will be placed in the Monument Park section of the Cathedral of Baseball. The bronze award honors the manager whose Yankee teams appeared in the post season in each of his 12 Yankee seasons, winning six AL pennants and four worlds championships. Torre was 1,173-767-2 in the regular season and 76-47 in the postseason.Indeed, Torre finished last or close to the bottom of the heap numerous times during his tenure as manager of the Mets, Braves and Cardinals, but as Tyler Kepner noted in the New York Times, “the intersection of personal and professional factors,” made him the right man at the right time to earn glory in the Bronx, signified by four world championships and 12 consecutive post-season appearances.TNH was at Yankees Stadium, reporting on the tribute to a man whose qualities might have inspired Homer to sing his praises had he led men on a Trojan battlefield rather than a baseball diamond.Torre warmed the hearts of 47, 594 fans who filled the great Bronx ballyard with a moving speech that sang the praises his home town of New York, his players and coaches, and the Steinbrenner family, especially the late “Boss”, George M. Steinbrenner, famous for rebuilding the great franchise which had fallen on hard times, and for giving Torre the opportunity to manage his team.The boy from Brooklyn of humble origins reached high for words to describe the experience of presiding over the latest Yankee dynasty. Reminiscent of the the words of great astronauts and astronomers, Torre saying that while It’s a short walk from old Yankee Stadium to the new stadium, “It’s a long, long journey from the field to Monument Park. However, I was blessed to make that journey on the shoulders of some very special players.”Derek Jeter’s number 2 as the only single digit number still being worn on Yankees pinstripes, and that too will soon come to pass.The 40-year old Jeter, one of the oldest men to ever play the demanding position of shortstop, appear in the game on August 23, a scheduled day of rest, but he escorted Soot Zimmer, the wife of Torre’s dear friend and colleague, the late Don Zimmer, onto the field to present Torre with a proclamation from New York Mayor Bill de Blasio naming Saturday Joe Torre Day.“Torre, now an executive vice president for Major League Baseball, is the fourth member of the Yankees teams that won four World Series titles from 1996-2000 to be honored in Monument Park. Mariano Rivera was celebrated last season and Tino Martinez and Paul O’Neill were give plaques earlier this summer. Bernie Williams will be recognized next year,” the Associated Press reported.There was also a ball game to delight the crowd which featured an excellent performance by winning pitcher Hiroki Kuroda, a home run by Carlos Beltran which was very welcome during a season when the team has not lived up to its “Bronx Bombers” nickname, and other signs of offensive life – the visiting White Sox turned in some spectacular defensive plays – that are vital to the Yankees’ efforts to send their Captain into the post season one last time, which would be a nice footnote – not an asterisk – to the career of the manager and mentor he always called “Mr. Torre.”TweetPinShare0 Shares

Borussia Dortmund Pulisic: Bayern match always has extra meaning Goal Last updated 2 years ago 08:32 11/4/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Maja Hitij Borussia Dortmund Borussia Dortmund v Bayern München Bayern München Bundesliga The American midfielder wants to see Borussia Dortmund to get back on track with a win against their main Bundesliga rival Christian Pulisic wants to see Borussia Dortmund come out of what he classifies as “a tough time” with a win against Bayern Munich this weekend. Dortmund can climb back to the top of the Bundesliga with a victory against Bayern on Saturday, but to do so the club will have to reverse a poor run of form in recent weeks.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player One point in the last three league outings has seen BVB fall three points back of the Bavarians in the Bundesliga table and, coupled with back-to-back draws against APOEL in the Champions League, Pulisic admits his team is going through a rough patch. “After we had that amazing start, with I don’t know how many wins and no goals conceded – I mean, it’s hard to expect that the whole season,” Pulisic told bundesliga.com. “There are going to be tough times, and right now is a tough time – but I believe in our team and I think we can bounce right back.”That bounce back won’t be easy. Bayern has not lost since late Septmeber, when the club fell 3-0 to PSG in the Champions League and sacked manager Carlo Ancelotti, and Pulisic knows there is always a little more riding on the Bundesliga’s Klassiker.”The Klassiker definitely has that special feeling,” the 19-year-old said. “When we play against Bayern, one of our main rivals, the game always has a bit of extra meaning to it, and you want a good result.”Pulisic will likely join up with the U.S. national team for a friendly against Portugal after this weekend’s match against Bayern.
This was a defeat to leave all Chelsea’s frailties brutally exposed and the head coach reverting to his native tongue to make clear the depths of his dissatisfaction. Overwhelmed as Arsenal ripped into them through a one-sided first half, Maurizio Sarri’s team had no incision of their own with which to muster anything approaching a riposte. A side lacking a focal point to their front-line limped away in defeat attempting to recall what had constituted their solitary shot on target, and with the gap to fifth and sixth place trimmed to a precarious three points.Their efforts had been feeble. They are a team treading water at present and Gonzalo Higuaín, a short-term fix at 31 and a striker with no previous experience of the helter-skelter of this division, cannot arrive on loan from Juventus soon enough. How they could have done with the Argentinian in his pomp here as they attempted to retrieve the deficit shipped in that furious opening period, though that lack of firepower was only one aspect of the problem. Maurizio Sarri says Chelsea’s players are ‘extremely difficult to motivate’ 27 Christensen 13 Caballero 29 Guendouzi 13 15 4 Elneny 1 Arrizabalaga Arsenal Arsenal 2-0 Chelsea: Premier League – as it happened The hosts might have scored three times even before, as the quarter-hour mark approached, Lacazette collected Héctor Bellerín’s centre on his instep amid a clutter of opponents. The Frenchman, initially with his back to goal, twisted smartly away from Pedro and beyond Alonso’s half-hearted attempt to block before, with the angle suddenly horribly tight, spitting away a shot which ripped high inside Kepa Arrizabalaga’s near-post with the goalkeeper pawing at fresh air.Had they led by only one at the break, Arsenal might have been frustrated given the misses by Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Koscielny and Aubameyang. As it was, the home side would not be denied. Papastathopoulos’s optimistic shot six minutes from the interval turned into an astute cross with Koscielny, stooping on the edge of the six-yard box, looping in a second improbably off his right shoulder.Emery later suggested that progress was being made on Denis Suárez’s loan arrival from Barcelona, the only sour note on a restorative evening’s work a serious knee injury sustained by Bellerín late on. That will need to be scanned “but first impressions are not positive”. His team have already claimed more points – eight – against the top six this season than they did last, and are now hovering alongside Manchester United on Chelsea’s shoulder. Both will smell blood.

Their defending was made to look flimsy by the excellence of Aaron Ramsey, Alexandre Lacazette and a workaholic Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, and a tigerish midfield. Yet, in many ways, it was the inability to recover which was more troubling. Marcos Alonso nodded against a post, the 16th time this season Chelsea have struck the woodwork, but that was as close as they came. The statisticians’ insistence that the visitors had managed a first shot on target since the 64th minute against Newcastle seven days previously had felt generous, whether it referred to Ross Barkley’s attempt, blocked by Laurent Koscielny, just after the hour-mark or Alonso’s cross shot, pushed away by Bernd Leno, eight minutes from time.Regardless, each effort had been repelled with relative ease. It was telling that Koscielny, a player whose form had been rusty ahead of a sixth league appearance after seven months out with a ruptured achilles, looked a centre-half reborn. The days when Drogba would rampage at will in this arena, wrecking Arsenal opponents’ careers en route, have never felt more distant.This was a victory to cherish for Unai Emery after a difficult week. His switch to a diamond midfield, tipped by the Juventus-bound Ramsey, proved a masterstroke, and the furious nature of the hosts’ first-half display showcased Arsenal at their attacking best.

His post-match laceration questioned his players’ motivation, determination and, as a result, their basic commitment. A club which only recently was built around John Terry and Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba and Petr Cech, has suddenly been rendered mentally frail. Prone to implosion. A side who roll over who are “never going to be a team well known for its battling and fighting qualities”. That was utterly damning, the kind of public criticism that, when key players had the owner’s ear, might actually have left the head coach’s position under serious scrutiny.Sarri’s predecessor, Antonio Conte, was once rendered equally livid by a thrashing in this arena, but duly ripped up his blueprint and started again with a completely different approach. Chelsea went on to win the title that season. Sarri, however, does not work that way. He was brought to this club to play a certain way, with a style that established his reputation at Napoli, and he will not change. Yet, if this group really cannot adapt, that inflexibility could end up costing all dear. Their points tally is identical now to the same stage last season, when Conte’s tenure was apparently unravelling, but they have scored one goal fewer. This is a team whose identity is drifting. 1 Cech 10 Hazard 8 Ramsey Chelsea 63 37 18 Giroud 5 6 Arsenal 11 Pedro Share on Pinterest Share on Twitter 5 Papastathopoulos 14 Aubameyang Fouls (s 68′) 3 Alonso Topics Read more Share on WhatsApp CHE ARS Share on Facebook
Real Madrid v Liverpool Liverpool are destined to win Champions League – Lawrenson Nizaar Kinsella Click here to see more stories from this author Last updated 1 year ago 17:17 5/26/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Real Madrid v Liverpool Liverpool Real Madrid UEFA Champions League The Reds are looking to seal the sixth European title in their history and one of their former stars believes the gods will be on their side in Kiev Liverpool are destined to win the Champions League this season, according to former star Mark Lawrenson.The Reds are looking to claim their sixth European crown when they line up against Real Madrid in the final in Kiev on Saturday.Jurgen Klopp’s team have been in impressive form throughout the competition, recording resounding wins over Manchester City and Roma in each of the last two rounds, but came close to losing their advantage against the Italian side in their semi-final second leg. Editors’ Picks Goalkeeper crisis! Walker to the rescue but City sweating on Ederson injury ahead of Liverpool clash Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Sorry, Cristiano! Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now The showpiece in Ukraine, however, presents a different challenge as they take on twice-defending champions Madrid.However, Lawrenson, who won the 1984 European Cup as well as five top-flight titles with Liverpool, is confident the script has been written in the Anfield team’s favour.”I wouldn’t normally be a believer in fate, but I am as far as this [Liverpool] group is concerned,” Lawrenson told Goal. “If you look, I think the draw has been kind to them. People would argue, maybe with Manchester City not [that much], but even in the games.”If you take the first game, Roma are away, Karius went to catch the ball and he missed it and it hit the crossbar. If Roma score, then the game is completely different. In the City game, at half-time, in the second leg the goal that was disallowed should have been a goal.”So I just have this thing with them, I think they are just destined to win it. Obviously we know it is Madrid, but it is not the Madrid team of four of five years ago. I think it is slightly on the wane.”With star forward Mohamed Salah leading the attack on a run of 10 goals in 12 appearances in the competition and backed by Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, Lawrenson says Liverpool’s firepower outranks even Madrid’s famous trio of Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale.”I think Liverpool’s front three are the best front three in any club side in the world,” Lawrenson added. “A lot of that is also to do with the fact that not many teams play with a front three, but they are most definitely the best, I don’t think there’s any argument about that whatsoever.”When you look at Firmino, when his mate Philippe Coutinho got transferred to Barcelona, you were kind of thinking that he might have six months where he is not sure what he is going to do but he has actually been brilliant. He has gone on and played better. I think it is just one of those with Liverpool, if they score first in the final then I would really fancy them, but hey, I think it is a game that any team can win.”Although Salah and Co. are taking on the most successful team in the competition’s history, Lawrenson believes the Spanish side’s record in finals will have no impact on the result, as there is something divine about the English hopefuls.”I think history means nothing. It is just a football game,” he added. “We know, we have all played in finals and it didn’t make any difference if you won it the year before. Or if someone else was playing and it was five years ago.”I don’t get it because it is a game of football with tremendous pressure. I don’t think that makes any difference but listen, I think it is 50/50 on who wins it, but then there’s something about Liverpool. It is like the man upstairs has gone I will let them win it this time around. I don’t think since it became the Champions League, that a team has won it for three years running so Madrid can do that.”He does agree that Zidane’s team may seem favourites to most, though, and feels the challengers will have to watch out for their “dark arts”.”Yes, [Madrid favourites on paper]. It’s is just the fact that they have won it for the past two years. That’s not a history thing, it is just that they have won it and it is most of the same players. I also think Madrid are a little bit cleverer in so far as Liverpool, although they play a pressing game, they don’t stop teams playing by falling over and trying to get people booked.”I think there’s a bit of dark arts about Madrid. That helps Madrid as well, I think.”
Sanket Vijayasarathy New DelhiApril 24, 2019UPDATED: April 25, 2019 09:32 IST HIGHLIGHTSOnePlus 7 Pro price in India could cross Rs 50,000.The OnePlus 7 Pro is tipped to come with a curved display and 90Hz refresh rate.It is also expected to sport a pop-up selfie camera and a triple rear camera setup.OnePlus has started teasing the launch of the OnePlus 7 series. The company has announced a May 14 launch date with events taking place simultaneously in India, China, the UK and the US. The OnePlus 7 series is said to include a regular OnePlus 7 and a OnePlus 7 Pro. The Pro model is tipped to come with some additional premium features and a higher price tag. How high you ask? Well, it is quite possible that the OnePlus 7 Pro price in India will cross Rs 50,000.A user on Weibo asked whether 5,000 Yuan would be enough to buy the OnePlus 7 Pro to which OnePlus CEO Pete Lau said it would be just enough, GizmoChina reports. When converted to Indian currency, this means the OnePlus 7 Pro could cost approximately Rs 52,000 in India. This is a rough estimation and the final price could be a little higher or lower.The OnePlus 7 Pro is being touted as the company’s most premium phone to date as the company looks to directly take on Samsung, Huawei and Apple in the premium segment. It wouldn’t be the first time OnePlus launches a phone that crosses the Rs 50,000 mark. A few months ago, the company announced the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition for Rs 50,999, which is currently on sale in India on Amazon and OnePlus’ official website.The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition was no doubt a way for the company to test the water to see how consumers react to a OnePlus phone with a price over Rs 50,000. OnePlus claims that it has seen a positive response towards the McLaren Edition, which is why the company brought it back on sale again in India. This must have given the company the necessary confidence to launch a more premium Pro model.advertisementBased on what we know so far, the OnePlus 7 Pro is rumoured to sport a large 6.7-inch sAMOLED curved display with a QHD+ resolution and smooth refresh rate of 90Hz. It will also come with 5G support along with a Snapdragon 855 chipset and possibly up to 10GB of RAM. The Pro model is also tipped to come with a pop-up selfie camera and a triple camera setup with a 48MP primary camera. You can also expect a 40W fast charge support and a larger battery compared to the OnePlus 7.ALSO READ | OnePlus 7 series listed on Amazon India with notify me option ahead of May 14 launchALSO READ | OnePlus 7 series to be launched on May 14 in India, company hints at gradient coloursGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

Press Trust of India KolkataJuly 2, 2019UPDATED: July 2, 2019 15:32 IST Nusrat Jahan, who was heavily trolled for wearing vermilion and sporting a mangalsutra at her oath-taking ceremony had said she represents an “inclusive” India. (PTI File)Newly elected TMC MP and actor Nusrat Jahan whose stand on religion and inclusiveness is “in sync” with the Iskcon’s spirit of “social harmony”, has been invited as a special guest at the inauguration ceremony of the Kolkata ISKCON Rathayatra on Thursday.Thanking Nusrat Jahan for accepting the invitation, Iskcon spokesperson Radharaman Das said, the actor represented an “all inclusive India” and was “really showing the road forward”.The 48th edition of the Rathayatra organised by the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (Iskcon) since 1971, will be inaugurated by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.Nusrat Jahan, who got married to a Kolkata-based businessman and was heavily trolled for wearing vermilion and sporting a ‘mangalsutra’ at her oath-taking ceremony, had said, she represents an “inclusive India… which is beyond the barriers of caste, creed and religion.”The actor and her husband will be present at the inauguration ceremony along with other film stars.”Nusarat Jahan represents new India… an all-inclusive India. Respect for others religious beliefs and participation in their festivities will make India great again. This is what India stands for and youth like Nusarat Jahan are showing the path forward,” Das told PTI.”A society where there is freedom for all to choose responsibly is a happy society. That freedom has been given by God to all. So, we the people should not be one to snatch that freedom from anyone,” he added.In a tweet, Das had earlier said: “Thank you @nusratchirps for accepting the Rathayatra invitation. You are really showing the road forward.”advertisement”Iskcon Kolkata Rathayatra is example of that social harmony where the Lord’s chariots are also built by our Muslim brothers. Some of the most beautiful Lords dresses are also made by our Muslim brothers & they are doing it for decades in some of our temples,” Das had said.In a video released on Monday evening, the actor congratulated Iskcon for organising the Rathayatra and asked the residents of the city to join her at the inauguration and be with her through the celebrations.Refusing to toe the line of hardline Muslim clerics who had criticised her, the first-time MP from West Bengal’s Basirhat had said, “… I still remain a Muslim… And none should comment on what I choose to wear… Faith is beyond attire.”A section of Deoband-based clerics have reportedly issued a ‘fatwa’ (diktat) against the Trinamool Congress lawmaker.Supporting the actor, Das said fundamentalism and manufactured supremacy must be condemned.”Everyone has the freedom to preach and others have the freedom to accept it or reject it. All kinds of fundamentalism and manufactured supremacy should be condemned. God preaches love for all,” Das said.”This is what the festival of Rathayatra represents. The lord comes out to bless everyone and not only Hindus,” Das added.This year’s yatra will highlight the condition of senior citizens who spend their lives away from family members at old age homes, Das said.Starting from the city’s Hungerford Street opposite the Iskcon temple at Albert Road, the yatra will move through important thoroughfares of the city to reach Brigade Parade Grounds, where arrangements have been made for the people to have a special darshan of Lord Jagannath till July 11.Groups of devotees from south India will be present in front of the three chariots to make street art with organic ‘gulals’.Internationally famous ‘kirtaniyas’ will render ‘kirtans’ (devotional songs) to the accompaniment of drums and ‘kartals’ (percussion instrument) during the yatra.The ‘Ultarathayatra’ will start on July 12 noon when the chariots will return to the Albert Road temple.READ | Politicians support TMC MP Nusrat Jahan after fatwa issued over her sindoor, marriage to non-MuslimWATCH | I represent inclusive India, says Nusrat Jahan who was slammed for wearing saree, sindoorFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Spotify CEO disappointed over Taylor Swift pulling music off popular streaming site HELSINKI – Spotify’s Swedish CEO voiced disappointment Tuesday that Taylor Swift pulled her music off the popular music streaming service, denying claims it’s making money “on the backs of artists.”Daniel Ek defended the service in a blog post, saying he had co-founded the platform to protect artists from piracy and had paid more than $2 billion to music labels and publishers since 2008.In the blog titled “$2 Billion and Counting,” Ek said that piracy doesn’t pay artists a penny, “nothing, zilch, zero,” while Spotify’s payouts for a top artist like Swift were on track “to exceed $6 million a year.”Artists complain that music streaming services and file sharing have sharply cut into album sales and that the fees Spotify pays to record labels and music publishers, with a portion eventually funneled to musicians, is too small.Swift pulled her music from Spotify last week, meaning her songs, which were among the most streamed on the service, are no longer available to its 50 million users.“Music is art, and art is important and rare,” Swift wrote in the Wall Street Journal last summer. “Important, rare things are valuable. Valuable things should be paid for.”Spotify says nearly 70 per cent of the revenue it receives from paying customers goes back to rights holders in the form of royalty payments and the more people who pay for Spotify the more money artists get. Customers pay $9.99 a month for Spotify’s premium streaming service, which gives them access to its music library on smartphones and computers without any advertisements.The company claims 12.5 million of its 50 million users subscribe to the premium service, the remainder using the free service that is funded by advertisements.Ek conceded that it was a big problem if “money is not flowing to the creative community in a timely and transparent way.”“We will do anything we can to work with the industry to increase transparency, improve speed of payments, and give artists the opportunity to promote themselves and connect with fans,” Ek wrote.

Paul received his cap from the legendary fast bowler Curtly Ambrose.Keemo PaulWest Indies also dropped their only specialist spinner – Devendra Bishoo. Shimron Hetmyer took Bishoo’s place as West Indies bolstered their batting.Shakib said he still has faith in his batting order, despite Bangladesh’s twin collapses in the series-opener in Antigua, which is why they made just one change, in their bowling attack. And it was an interesting one, with left-arm spinner Taijul Islam being replaced by Rubel Hossain, who went wicketless in the first Test.West Indies: 1 Kraigg Brathwaite, 2 Devon Smith, 3 Kieran Powell, 4 Shai Hope, 5 Roston Chase, 6 Shimron Hetmyer, 7 Shane Dowrich (wk), 8 Jason Holder (capt), 9 Keemo Paul, 10 Miguel Cummins, 11 Shannon GabrielBangladesh: 1 Tamim Iqbal, 2 Liton Das, 3 Mominul Haque, 4 Mushfiqur Rahim, 5 Shakib Al Hasan (capt), 6 Mahmudullah, 7 Nurul Hasan (wk), 8 Mehidy Hasan Miraz, 9 Taijul Islam, 10 Abu Jayed, 11 Kamrul Islam (ESPNCricinfo)
The current ‘orange’ wind warning applies to Munster, Connacht and Donegal — but the rest of the country isn’t expected to escape the effects of the weather system.Read: Blaze at Ballymount recycling plant extinguished after five days The predicted swell of the Atlantic coast in the early hours of Saturday [Magic Seaweed]MET ÉIREANN’S ISSUED another of it’s ‘orange alert’ storm warnings this morning — and this weather system looks a little more serious than the one that hit last weekend.Winds of up to 130km are set to sweep into the West from Friday night — and in addition to the high-tide factor which created an extra risk of flooding last Saturday and Sunday, the weather service says we can also expect frequent heavy showers, including “some thundery with sleet and snow”.Precautions are being put in place on exposed coasts as forecasters warn of “extremely high waves”:High coastal flood risk too due to the combination of very high spring tides, extremely high waves (greater than 10 m), low pressure and onshore winds – southwest, west and northwest margins most at threat.
Starting to get excited for the Super Bowl on Sunday? Well, if you’re the type of person that prefers frame rates to field goals, CMOS sensors to cornerbacks, and recording times to rushing yards (I’m running out of sports terms…) then here is a fun fact about the Super Bowl XLVI: it will be filmed, in part, by four new NAC Hi-Motion II slow motion cameras. The Hi-Motion II might look like what you expect a typical HD broadcast camera to be, but it has some serious tech packed inside. That includes three CMOS sensors, 96GB of storage, and the ability to record from 24 to 1000 frames per seconds, with controls that allow for 1 fps increments between those rates. The camera records at 1080 60i (what NBC will use this year) or 50i as well as 720p. And for the operator’s benefit it is outfitted with a 9-inch viewfinder that is used for tracking the event. The Hi-Motion II might be capable of recording up to 1000 frames per second, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that a) it can do so for any reasonable length of time, b) it can do so at Super Bowl, or broadcast, quality and c) it can record at the resolution necessary for television use. Scaling down the frame rate helps with this — NAC literature mentions that the camera’s recording time at “300fps Full Mode” is 38 seconds. That’s more than enough for a football play and assuming “Full Mode” means reasonable video quality these cameras should be a big hit on Sunday. The CMOS sensors they use are high sensitivity so the degradation and loss of light that comes with high frame rates should be minimized. In a release the company noted that the camera is capable of “10X high speed images in Full HD” which isn’t very specific. NAC representative Andy Hayford told me that for the Super Bowl the Hi-Motion II cameras will in fact operate at 300 frames per second, which “works well on football, allowing replays of a usable duration in the match coverage but also showing so much more detail than a regular replay.” According to a statement by NAC, the technical rehearsals have gone swimmingly. Above you can see Hayford at Lucas Oil Stadium during the pre-game testing. As an added perk the Hi-Motion II can do simultaneous output of a live video feed and slow motion replay. So slow motion will be available without an interruption to the action that is ongoing. Wondering what other gear is recording the Super Bowl this year? NAC told us that “The four NAC Hi-Motion II cameras are the only Ultramotion cameras, [but] there are a multitude of other normal speed cameras and Super-Slo-Mo (triple speed) cameras.” We’re told that in addition the to four Hi-Motion IIs NBC will have 40 match cameras recording the game.
Le kilo a pris du poids, vous êtes plus légers que vous ne le pensezUne étude britannique high-tech a constaté que le kilogramme-étalon de Paris et ses répliques s’étaient alourdis au cours des décennies à cause de particules de polluants. Le kilogramme d’aujourd’hui serait ainsi plus lourd que celui de 1875. Un problème que pourrait heureusement résoudre un bon nettoyage. Vous êtes montés sur la balance après les fêtes et n’avez pas aimé ce que vous y avez lu ? Rassurez-vous, vous être sûrement moins lourd que ce que votre chère balance vous a indiqué ! Du moins de quelques grammes… C’est ce que suggère une récente étude britannique tout juste publiée dans la revue Journal of Metrologia qui affirme que le kilogramme d’aujourd’hui est plus lourd que celui qui a été introduit en 1875. C’est au Bureau international des poids et mesures de Paris qu’est conservé depuis la fin du XIXe siècle l’étalon officiel du kilogramme – un morceau de platine de la taille d’une boîte d’allumettes. Cet objet et ses 40 répliques officielles faites en 1884 et distribuées dans le monde entier, servent à normaliser la mesure de cette grandeur physique qu’est la masse. Problème : ces étalons n’ont aujourd’hui plus tout à fait le même poids (la même masse, plus exactement) qu’à l’époque de leur fabrication… Une observation qui a poussé les scientifiques à vouloir en savoir plus.Pour cela, le Pr Peter Cumpson et le Dr Sano Naoko, de l’Université de Newcastle, ont utilisé une sonde Thêta -un instrument unique, utilisant les photoélectrons – pour effectuer une spectroscopie de ces objets symboliques et en analyser la surface. Résultats : d’infimes dépôts de particules d’hydrocarbures – issues de la pollution atmosphérique – souillent ces 41 étalons, affectant leur masse et de façon inégale, bien sûr. D’où le problème alors que ceux-ci sont censés représenter une référence mondiale pour le kilogramme. Une légère variation dont l’impact est énorme À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?”Nous ne parlons que d’un très petit changement – moins de 100 microgrammes (…) Mais la masse est une unité si fondamentale que même ce petit changement est important et l’impact d’une légère variation à l’échelle mondiale est absolument énorme”, explique le Pr Cumpson cité par le Telegraph. “Il y a des cas de commerce international de matériaux de grande valeur – ou de déchets – où chaque microgramme doit être pris en compte”, a rappelé le Pr Cumpson, soulignant que malheureusement, le changement est trop petit pour que tous les gourmands de Noël puissent enlever des kilos au poids qu’ils ont lu sur la balance. Toutefois, le changement n’est pas irréversible puisque un “bronzage” aux rayons ultraviolets et à l’ozone pourrait rendre la ligne aux 41 objets-étalons et ainsi rendre au kilogramme sa vraie valeur. En attendant, cette découverte apporte un argument de plus à ceux qui travaillent actuellement sur la possibilité de trouver une alternative à ces “boites d’allumettes” étalons.Le 7 janvier 2013 à 17:24 • Maxime Lambert
ISTANBUL — Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan declared victory in Sunday’s referendum that will grant sweeping powers to the presidency, hailing the result as a “historic decision.”Speaking to reporters in Istanbul, Erdogan said unofficial results showed the “yes” side had won by a margin of 1.3 million votes.The president struck a conciliatory tone, thanking all voters regardless of how they cast their ballots and describing the referendum as a “historic decision.”“April 16 is the victory of all who said yes or no, of the whole 80 million, of the whole of Turkey of 780,000-square kilometers,” Erdogan said.Returns carried by the state-run Anadolu news agency showed that with nearly 99 percent of the vote counted, the “yes” vote had about 51.3 percent compared to 48.7 percent for the “no” vote.Turkey’s main opposition party vowed to challenge the results reported by Anadolu agency, saying they were skewed.Erdogan has long sought to broaden his powers, but a previous attempt failed after the governing party that he co-founded fell short of enough votes to pass the reforms without holding a referendum.
Simon Mignolet believes Liverpool would learn from their late title twist in 2014 as they close in on their first Premier League crown.Only three players Mignolet, Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge who were all instrumental in that campaign are in the current team.And five years on they are on the cusp of something special with a four-point lead ahead of Man City.“So much has changed over the past five years here,” he told the ECHO.“It’s only Hendo, Studge and me still here from the last time we really fought for the title.“Back then a lot of it was about Luis Suarez and Studge, whereas now the goals are shared about more. We had a really good team in 2013/14 but the moment we got one or two injuries it became difficult.“We’ve got a broad squad now which means we can cope with injuries. That’s probably the biggest difference with last time.“If a game is deadlocked there is always someone ready on the bench who is capable of opening a game up. In that sense, we’re in a much better position than we were then.23 – Mohamed Salah & Roberto Firmino have combined to set up 23 goalscoring chances for one another in the Premier League this season; more than any other pair. The next best is Mohamed Salah & Sadio Mané (22 chances created between each other). Dangerous. pic.twitter.com/EbtRefEXZP— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) January 21, 2019Top 5 Premier League players to watch for next weekend Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 11, 2019 With the international activity cooling down for the next month, we go back to the Premier League’s Top 5 players to watch this weekend.After…“The general quality of this squad is the best I’ve ever known. When we play 11 v 11 in training it’s like being involved in a top match in the Premier League.“It’s not 11 first-teamers against 11 reserves, it’s two Premier League sides facing each other in training. It’s high quality.”Klopp’s men are breaking club records with their tally of 60 points from 23 games the best return at this stage of a season in the club’s illustrious history.Defensively, the difference is vast. Where Liverpool leaked 50 league goals in 2013/14, now the foundations are much stronger with just 13 conceded this time around.7 – Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool won seven league games during December 2018 – the most they’ve ever won in a single calendar month in their entire history. Award. pic.twitter.com/4n4yGN2ggQ— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) January 11, 2019“Exactly and that’s massive,” Mignolet said.“I think a big part of that is Virgil van Dijk. Ever since he’s come in he’s made a huge difference.“It’s not only his playing ability but the character and the leadership he sends out from the back. It’s especially important when you play teams like Brighton and Crystal Palace recently.“It’s the pressure he eases with his clearing headers. He always makes it look so easy. Something that’s very difficult for anyone else, just looks like a walk in the park for Virgil. He’s made us a lot more solid than before.”
Brody says that almost all of these publishers only buy one product or service from AOL at this point, and he’s hoping this new group will offer cross-platform (video, content, surveys, etc.) solutions to publishers presently working with the aforementioned companies.Revenue is modeled differently for each branch of the group, “On the ad network side, we buy inventory for publishers; we pay them, and then we resell it to advertisers, essentially,” Brody says. “On the Pictela model and ADTECH side, we get a serving fee.”Since AOL is now looking to combine businesses and services, in many cases, ad serving will be free, if a publisher allows AOL to monetize a “significant portion of a site’s inventory through Advertising.com.”In addition to giving publishers larger (premium) ad sizes, ways to monetize video and offering custom content production (through Seed, StudioNow and AOL Answers), AOL can also syndicate HuffPo content.The Advertising.com Group created a transparent ad network model so that advertisers know exactly where they are buying inventory. Dubbed “super channels,” advertisers will know what publishers they are working with, as bundles like “travel” are offered for purchase. In time, the Group will offer integrated product suites, but its initial focus is cross-selling the company’s abilities on multiple platforms. Earlier this month, AOL launched the AOL Advertising.com Group, a b-to-b advertising division focused on serving publishers. In hopes of bringing premium advertising to the online sector, AOL has harnessed several of its companies (Advertising.com, ADTECH, Pictela, Goviral, 5min Media, StudioNow, Seed and AOL Answers) to create a one-stop advertising solution for publishers.Ned Brody, who was the founder and CEO of ARPU and former CFO of LookSmart, is acting as president and head of AOL Advertising.com Group. He says bringing premium brands to the Web has been one of the biggest problems in online advertising. “There is still a tremendous amount of advertising dollars sitting on the fence from traditional TV and print, as there have been no good scalable solution for brand advertisers on the Web. The average inventory sell-through is somewhere around 30 percent.”Currently, the AOL ad network works with about 5,000 publishers; European-based video service Goviral deals with 25,000 publishers; and video service 5min Media works with another 1,000 publishers. ADTECH works with upwards of 700 partners.

Facebook Twitter News Email How Freya Ridings Discovered Unexpected Tears freya-ridings-sharing-personal-experiences-lost-without-you Standing at a train station watching her lover leave, while falling apart, as the singer/songwriter recounts in her biggest hit to date, didn’t actually happen… but it felt so realPhilip MerrillGRAMMYs Sep 24, 2018 – 4:30 pm Londoner Freya Ridings is used to keeping it real. She began distributing her songs and performances digitally in 2017, winning a following for the pure-toned heartache in her voice and for recordings of her live performances. But her song “Lost Without You” broke the mold, bringing its enveloping sense of loss straight from her imagination.

It just came out fully formed, and I was like, ‘Oh my god, that just made me want to cry.'” It’s received a big reaction with more than a million views on YouTube and Top 40 placement on the UK Official Charts.The unexpected response is reminiscent of another real experience from Ridings’ life. “We made these little guerilla-style videos where we go around these secret pianos that are on underground train stations in London,” she shared. “No one would stop, and I loved that because it was kind of in your own world.” They tipped their fans 24 hours prior to one of these sessions thinking to attract “friends and family” but they got more than they bargained for. “They had to shut down the station,” she described. “It was hundreds of people and I was like, ‘What is going on?’ I still can’t believe that happened.” A friend’s choir even showed up and joined in.It will be interesting to see how other unexpected and imaginary life experiences surface through this emerging talent’s songs that have yet to arrive.The Aces On Music As A Tool To Ease The PainRead more
