Former Australia captain Michael Clarke has said India will have to settle into their ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 opening match quickly as he expects battered South Africa to play positive cricket in Southampton on Wednesday.Clarke, the captain of Australia’s World Cup-winning team in 2015, said South Africa have had time to understand the conditions better and that India will have to adapt quickly in order to avoid being caught off guard in their World Cup 2019 opener.South Africa have had their worst-ever start to a World Cup campaign as Faf du Plessis’ men have lost to England and Bangladesh in their first two matches. Clarke wants the Proteas to treat their tie vs India on Wednesday as a do-or-die match.”The key, if I was in the Indian change room, I would be saying ‘let’s not take time to settle into the match’. If we’re batting, let’s start in the fifth gear and dominate South Africa. If we’re bowling, let’s focus on taking wickets in the first 10 overs,” Michael Clarke told India Today.He added: “I feel India can’t afford to take time to settle into the game as I feel South Africa are going to come hard at them.”South Africa need to assume that if they lose vs India, they’re going home. They need to come out and play their best cricket. They are used to these conditions, they know what to expect.”India are a brilliant team and, in my opinion, they are the favourites for the competition. I have no doubt India will reach the semi-finals. For South Africa, now, it’s make or break after losing the 1st 2 games.”advertisementIndia, who won their warm-up match against Bangladesh after hundreds from KL Rahul and MS Dhoni, have had enough time to rest and recover from the workload of Indian Premier League. It seems all-rounder Kedar Jadhav who suffered a shoulder injury during IPL has recovered in time for the opener vs South Africa.India are going to go to the safer option: Michael Clarke on wrist-spinnersShedding light on India’s possible team combination, Michael Clarke doesn’t see Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal playing in tandem in a lot of matches in World Cup 2019. He expects India to adopt a “safer approach” and include Ravindra Jadeja in the playing XI.”I would definitely go with 2 wrist-spinners. But I think India are going to go the safer option. My mind is assuming India are going to go with Jadeja and his inclusion also adds depth to the batting unit.”Also Read | India vs South Africa, World Cup 2019 Match 8: Prediction and Probable Playing 11sAlso Read | World Cup 2019: History favours India over South Africa in recent ICC eventsAlso See:

Manchester United ‘Pirlo was the best in the world’ – Former Man Utd star Park pays homage to retiring ‘great’ Lee Sungmo Last updated 2 years ago 17:40 10/15/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Getty Manchester United Milan New York City UEFA Champions League Premier League The former Red Devils midfielder came face-to-face with an iconic playmaker during a two-legged Champions League last-16 clash with AC Milan in 2010 Park Ji-sung believes Andrea Pirlo was among the “best in the world” around the time of a famous duel between Manchester United and AC Milan.The iconic playmaker has announced that he is heading into retirement, with his boots to be hung up at the end of his contract with MLS side New York City.Man Utd 11/1 to win Champions League Article continues below Editors’ Picks Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. The 38-year-old is already assured of a standing alongside the modern greats, as a six-time Serie A champion, two-time Champions League victor and World Cup winner.Park believes Pirlo is fully deserving of such acclaim, having discovered first-hand how talented he is during a Champions League last-16 encounter in 2010.The former United midfielder told Goal: “He was not a big player physically, but his ability in passing, taking free-kicks, shooting from distance, play-making was the best in the world at that time.”I believe he was a great player who could dictate the game. He was the biggest threat to any team who played against his team.”While recognising the “threat” posed by Pirlo, Park played a key role in nullifying that during United’s European battle with Milan.Sir Alex Ferguson had charged the South Korean with containing the Rossoneri playmaker during a two-legged tie, and was rewarded with a 7-2 aggregate success as the Red Devils swept into the quarter-finals.Park added on the part he played in that triumph: “Man Utd analysed Milan’s game and concluded that Pirlo is the key man for them. Sir Alex Ferguson made me man-mark Pirlo. “So, I tried to block him so that he cannot be in possession of the ball. When he had the ball, I tried to prevent him passing the ball in front of him.”To mark Pirlo was not easy. It was hard mentally, physically but consequently Milan had a difficult game against us.”Park even got on the scoresheet during the second leg of United’s continental tussle with Milan, with a 4-0 win at Old Trafford highlighting their dominance in the contest, and Pirlo himself has admitted that the South Korean is one of the few players he could not best.”On one of the many occasions when our paths crossed (Pirlo’s, and Sir Alex Ferguson) during my time at Milan, he unleashed Park Ji-sung to shadow me,” he wrote in his autobiography, ‘I Think Therefore I Play’. “The midfielder must have been the first nuclear-powered South Korean in history, in the sense that he rushed about the pitch at the speed of an electron.”It was efforts such as that which helped to secure a versatile performer cult hero status, with Park having shown on countless occasions that he was more than a match for the likes of Pirlo and the very best in the business.
Joe Young DunkJoe Young saw action in 41 games as a rookie for the Indiana Pacers last season, and the former Oregon star is playing with the franchise’s team in the Orlando Summer League this week.

The United Nations says that by 2050 approximately 60 percent of the world population will live in an urban area. That’s why Ford, the Dearborn, Michigan-based automaker who pioneered large-scale auto manufacturing back in the early 1900s is moving into a new realm, which started with the inauguration of a Silicon Valley Research Innovation Center, which opened in Palo Alto, California, earlier this year.A few days ago, at the Further With Ford 2015 conference in San Francisco and the Silicon Valley, Ford announced the introduction of new technologies that will make transportation easier in cities: a new eBike and a peer-to-peer car-sharing program. “We really want to be part of the community,” said Ford CEO Mark Fields. “We’re focused on three priorities: accelerating the pace of progress on our One Ford plan, delivering product excellence with a lot of passion, and also driving innovation into every part of our business.”With the surging urban population growth, Ford is focusing on the Ford Smart Mobility plan. “Henry Ford understood that mobility is all about freedom: the freedom to choose where to live, where to work and where to play,” said Fields. After a research phase, the company is now in the implementation part of its plan, which is based around two products: a new Peer-2-Peer Car Sharing program, which could possibly be the AirBNB of the automobile world. Ford is also introducing its third eBike: the MoDe:Flex, which is reconfigurable based on each rider’s needs. “The bike’s center frame assembly includes the motor and battery, while the front and rear assemblies and wheels can be configured for road, mountain or city riding,” says a release. “The bike folds and stores inside any Ford vehicle – where it can be charged while stowed.”So just think — need a car, or aren’t using your own? If you’re signed up with Ford’s Peer-2-Peer Car Sharing program, you can benefit from people’s automobiles. Or an eBike — we know that we could use a bike that comes with navigation capabilities. Looks like at the moment, the future may be with Ford. Professional Nomads Show Off How They Renovated an Airstream There’s Never a Bad Time to Visit Whistler, the Four-Season Outdoor Playground
Residents and visitors are advised not to swim in, drink water from, or eat fish caught in Powder Mill Lake, near Waverley in the Halifax Regional Municipality, because of a probable blue-green algae bloom. While the health risk is fairly low, avoiding contact with the water is a simple precaution to prevent the potential health risks of some blue-green algae. Blue-green algae blooms are naturally occurring and can produce toxins. People should not drink the water or use it to prepare or cook food, or to brush teeth. Boiling the water will not eliminate potential toxins. People who have ingested water containing toxins from blue-green algae may experience stomach ache, diarrhea, vomiting and nausea. Recreational use of the water, bathing and showering is not advised. Direct contact with toxins from the algae can cause skin and eye irritation. If symptoms persist after a few days, consult a health-care provider. Pets and other animals should not be permitted to drink or swim in the water.

LOS BANOS, Calif. — One of the most recent threats to California’s environment has webbed feet, white whiskers, shaggy fur and orange buck teeth that could be mistaken for carrots.“Boy, they’re an ugly-looking thing,” said David Passadori, an almond and walnut grower in central California. “And the way they multiply — jeez.”The swamp rodents, called nutria, are setting off alarms in California. They weigh about 20 pounds (9 kilograms) each and eat the equivalent of about a fourth of their weight each day by burrowing into riverbanks and chomping into plants that emerge from the water.The animals can destroy the wetland habitats of rare and endangered species, degrading soil, ruining crops and carrying pathogens that may threaten livestock.Most of all, they pose a public safety risk: Left unchecked, nutria could jeopardize California’s water supply, especially if they get into the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta.The delta is the “heartbeat of California’s water infrastructure,” according to Peter Tira, spokesman for the state’s Department of Fish and Wildlife. It contains a network of more than 1,000 miles (1,600 kilometres) of canals and levees that protect the area from flooding, provide drinking water to millions of Californians and irrigate the lush agricultural region.Now, armed with $10 million in state funds, the wildlife agency is deploying new tactics to eradicate the nutria and try to prevent the widespread destruction they are known to cause.“Over the past two years, our best efforts were trying to not even control the population but keep it from exploding while we pursued the resources needed to actually pursue eradication,” said Valerie Cook, environmental program manager for Fish and Wildlife’s newly established Nutria Eradication Program.“We haven’t had nutria in California for 50 years, so nobody really knows much about them,” Tira said. “We’ve had to learn on the job as we go.”An invasive species originally from South America and brought to the U.S. at the height of the fur trade in the late 19th century, nutria were believed to have been eradicated in the state in the 1970s until one turned up in a beaver trap in 2017. Since then, more than 700 nutria have been trapped and killed, including four on Passadori’s property.Farmers, landowners and biologists in the Central Valley, an agricultural region 130 miles (210 kilometres) north of Sacramento, have been on high alert.On a recent morning in Merced County, where the most nutria have been found, state biologists Greg Gerstenberg and Sean McCain paddled in kayaks in a wetland pond thick with cattails. Wearing waders, they trudged through chest-deep water to check surveillance cameras and cage traps where they leave sweet potato pieces to entice the invasive rodents.Last year, wildlife officials removed almost 90 nutria from this pond. Gerstenberg and McCain have returned because they believe at least a few nutria are back. But on this morning they found only muskrats, smaller swamp-dwelling rodents, and release them back into the pond.“Our goal is to get out here and find them and eradicate them before they become fully established throughout our Central Valley,” said Gerstenberg, a senior Fish and Wildlife biologist.The Central Valley is the United States’ most productive agricultural region, responsible for more than half the nation’s fruits, vegetables and nuts, including almost all its apricots, table grapes, carrots, asparagus and tree nuts. Federal Department of Agriculture figures pegged the market value of Central Valley agricultural in 2017 at almost $29 billion.Damage to the region’s soil or water infrastructure would be devastating to the economy and diet.“It would mean no more sushi because the alternative would be to buy rice from Japan or Korea, where the price is five times higher,” said Daniel Sumner, director of the Agricultural Issues Center at the University of California-Davis. “Kiss off carrots, or live without table grapes in the summertime.”Trail cameras and landowners have helped locate the elusive, nocturnal creatures over an area of almost 13,300 square miles (34,449 square kilometres) that wildlife officials are evaluating for nutria habitats. Live traps baited with sweet potato donated by farmers help capture them. Once identified as nutria, the animals are shot. Tira said about three-quarters of female nutria have been found pregnant — they can have up to three litters a year, allowing them to repopulate quickly.The new attention and funding will allow Fish and Wildlife to hire 46 dedicated staff. By December, the agency will launch what’s known as a Judas Nutria program that would outfit surgically sterilized nutria with radio collars and send them out in the wild. Because the animals are so social, they will lead the team to other nutria.Before year’s end, Fish and Wildlife will start genetically testing the nutria to determine where they came from. Tira said migration from Oregon or Washington is doubtful, but the team isn’t sure whether the nutria were reintroduced to California or part of a remnant population.Taking a cue from Maryland’s eastern shore and parts of Delaware and Virginia, officials also will test dogs trained to sniff out the rodents’ scent and scat.“We can’t be successful if we can’t find every single animal,” Cook said.Besides threatening agriculture and infrastructure, nutria can harm wetlands, which play a critical role in keeping carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere and helping mitigate global warming.The Central Valley also hosts the largest concentration of migratory waterfowl on Earth, said Ric Ortega, the Grassland Water District’s general manager.“We only have so much surface water storage in California,” he said. “It’s not a wetland if it’s not wet. The nutria complicate that.”___Samantha Maldonado reported from San Francisco.Samantha Maldonado And Terry Chea, The Associated Press
With its home opener on Feb. 13 approaching, the Ohio State women’s lacrosse team is looking to enter the 2016 season with the strong leadership and influence from nine seniors guiding the way.Alexis Venechanos, the sixth-year coach of the Buckeyes, said she looks to use this leadership for optimal success in the upcoming season.“This senior class was my first full recruiting class, and they are bringing their leadership out in so many different ways,” Venechanos said. “We’ve been giving our seniors control of the practices, where they’re in charge of working on our energy and giving feedback to our players, giving them a voice on the field.”Senior attackman Olivia DiCarlantonio said the senior class is a special one because each player is proud to be a Buckeye.“As a grade, we try to live up to the girls older than us, so we make a lot of decisions based on what we were taught as underclassmen,” DiCarlantonio said. “Our grade wants to build a legacy of Buckeyes to come, so we felt that if we prepared the younger girls and helped them realize what an honor it is to being playing for Ohio State, then we will be a successful team.”Senior defender Katie Keefe said the senior class has skills that, when brought together, help the team as a whole.“The feelings of just coming and getting the job done are out the window,” Keefe said. “They’re replaced with the idea that there is no next year for us, so we give it our all and go out with a bang.”The Buckeyes enjoyed a degree of success in 2015, going 13-8, including a trip to the Big Ten tournament championship. Their trip to the NCAA tournament was not a long one, however, as a 13-11 loss to Notre Dame sent the Scarlet and Gray home looking forward to the next year.The next year is now upon them, and, despite graduating several playmakers, DiCarlantonio said the team has an improved amount of talent and depth, giving it high aspirations to make a longer run than its brief taste of tournament play a season ago.“As a team, the goal is to always go all the way,” she said. “(Venechanos) has us focusing on positive energy and really being locked into the moment and that’s allowing everyone to improve individually and as a team.”OSU women’s lacrosse members celebrate a win over Maryland on May 1. Credit: Courtesy of Ben SolomanKeefe said now that a good amount of the team’s starters have graduated, it has given other players the challenge of filling those spots.“It’s our job to show the rest of the lacrosse community that the Buckeyes can still be a powerful team and end with another successful season,” Keefe said. “This idea reminds us that we all have a common goal we will work for as a team, and the only way to get there is to keep our energy high and our attitudes tough.”Venechanos said the team is looking forward to finishing up the preseason and getting on the field against an opponent.“We think we’re in the best lacrosse conference in the country,” Venechanos said. “We have Northwestern and Maryland, the two dynasties of women’s lacrosse, in our backyard, so if we do well in the Big Ten Conference, we will continue to make a name for ourselves nationally.”OSU is set to kick off its 2016 season on Feb. 13 with its home opener against Detroit.

Every employee knows not to look at naughty or inappropriate things at work. You’d think the important employees at the Pentagon would be the last people to do such a thing.Apparently, that’s not the case, the Executive Director of the Missile Defense Agency, John James Jr., sent out a memo to the government workers explaining they should not look at porn sites or send emails containing pornographic or sexual images. Not only does taking part in such activities mean that employees aren’t doing their jobs properly and makes them look extremely unprofessional, it’s a violation of DoD and federal regulations!More importantly, such activities could cause a security breach as porn websites can carry malware, viruses, and malicious code. If one computer got infected, it could spread to the entire network which could cause a number of problems for the MDA including theft of secret data (though most of the super secret stuff probably isn’t on networked machines).If employees violate these rules after the warning they would face disciplinary action which could likely end with them losing their job. The memo was written in response to a few employees who downloaded material from websites with viruses and malware issues, so this isn’t just about keeping the workplace free of smut.According to a government cybersecurity specialist, foreign intelligent services infect pornographic websites with harmful viruses and malware in order to harvest sensitive data from government computer networks.Naturally, it’s not only porn sites that could contain harmful materials, really Missile Defense Agency employees should not download any materials or visit websites they don’t need for their work. The fact that they are compromising the governments security at all is embarrassing and hopefully this warning will teach employees to keep such habits left at home.via Bloomberg
Friday 25 Nov 2016, 4:34 PM “Alex has paid his price for his choices. The sentences they were given is a mockery” The sister of 18-year-old Alex Ryan has spoken out about sentences handed down to those who supplied the N-bomb drug.

It seems inconceivable that a nation like Greece, once a core source of immigration to North America, Australia and Western Europe, would become a home to over 780,000 immigrants. A conference titled; Australian and Greek Migration systems: a comparison last week hosted the director of the Hellenic Migration Policy Institute (IMEPO), Alexandros Zavos, along with his colleagues who met with Australian multicultural policy makers to compare models and approaches to migration. On Thursday morning Mr Zavos layed out the complexities of Greece’s position and pointed out that while most immigrants in Greece are “Albanian, more people from Bulgaria, Romania and ex-Yugoslavia and the African continent, Asia Minor and the sub-continent of India and Pakistan are now flowing into Greece.” Australia has a years of experience with multiculturalism, while Greece is more recently coming to terms with its rapidly changing demographic.Like much of Europe, Greece while reliant on immigrant labour has also exhibited the ugly face of racism and xenophobia towards new arrivals. Mr Zavos when asked by Neos Kosmos English Edition (NKEE) what the Institute and the Greek Government are doing to change Greek attitudes towards immigrants said, “For the Greeks there are no immigrants there are only people. We see the benefits of migration to Greece and we want to communicate that to all.”He added, “One of the institute’s primary roles is to run a projects aimed at fighting racism. We see sport and art as an easier way for nationals and immigrants to come together and share.” The efforts of the Institute seem extensive, “We developed an exhibition by students of diverse cultural background as well as Greek nationals working together with photographers to capture their own experiences. Then we drew on photographic material from across the globe where photographs of Greek migrants going to America and Australia are juxtaposed with images of immigrants coming into Greece. We have also brought over 700 students through the Greek National Archaeological Museum and through workshops showed them how immigration always existed and was important to Greek civilisation – for example the way African art and culture impacted on Greek art on how through various ancient stages of migration Greek art changed on the statues, the motifs and so on.” Mr Zavos acknowledges that Greece has racism, but also underscores Australia’s past responses to Asian immigration and more recently African immigration. Greece is in now in line with the EU and has developed new legislation aimed at culturally sensitive approaches aimed at ‘social inclusion’. Mrs Anna Markaki the General Director of Migration Management and Social Integration of the Hellenic Ministry of Interior, highlighted the way Mediterranean nations are dealing with illegal immigrants: “The initiative of the Euro Mediterranian alliance, including north Africa, is looking for solutions to of illegal migration including policies that assist the development of third world nations. It’s not only about the border control of our nations, but about making conditions of life better in the developing world as a way of halting the current wave of illegal migration.”George Lekakis Chairperson of the Victorian Multicultural Commission (VMC), emphasised Australia’s longer legislative history in dealing with migration established in 1901. He acknowledges that the experience between Greece and Australia are not “dissimilar, and the challenges that Greece is facing are those we [Australia] had to face here.” While Australia has over 70,000 illegal immigrants here he acknowledged that “border issues are vastly different to those confronted by Greece.” Paris Aristotle AM, the Director of the Victoria Foundation for Survivors of Torture spoke of the need to stop using the term ‘illegal immigrants’ and criticises governments and politicians, including “Howard in 2001 during Tampa, Le Pen in France in 2002” for using “refugees and immigrants for political purposes”. Mr Aristotle emphasises that as long as conflicts are left to fester without solution “people will always be forced to leave their homeland.” He is sceptical of notions of ‘social cohesion’ and ‘social inclusion’ as masks a return to “assimilation by stealth.” For an ethnocentric nation like Greece, the flood of immigrants over the last 20 years has been a culture shock to many nationals. Yet the economic, cultural and other benefits of migration are fast becoming apparent and institutions like IMEPO are leading the way in policy areas that aim at making cultural diversity a positive new reality. Australian and Greek Migration systems: a comparison, ended last Friday and presented a range of speakers including, MP John Pandazopoulos the conference chair, John Gibson the President of the Refugee Council of Australia, Steve Georganas Federal MP, Mr Mike Zaffiropoulos and others. The conference was hosted by the VMC, the Greek Community of Melbourne Victoria at the Immigration Museum. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram

About 10 firefighters are trained to pilot Clark County Fire & Rescue’s 19-foot rescue boat and respond to calls along the Columbia, Lewis and Lake rivers. The 19-foot rescue boat took a few minutes to get going. The engine whined like a car not wanting to start. Once it roared to life, Fire Capt. Abe Rommel slowly pulled out from the 5 Mill St. dock, next door to Ridgefield Kayak Rentals.Rommel pilots Clark County Fire & Rescue’s jet-powered boat at 5 mph near the marina; anything damaged by the boat’s wake will be CCFR’s responsibility. The wake-free areas where boats have to slow down can sometimes slow down rescue response times, he said.The crew is waiting for FEMA’s final approval to get two new boats, called Quick Response Vehicles, equipped to respond to medical emergencies on the water and fight fires along the waterfront.Rommel said the current boat was bought on surplus from the sheriff’s office. And before that, CCFR had a 17-foot Boston Whaler, which couldn’t protect the crew from the elements when they went out on calls.“I miss it,” Rommel said. “It’s like your first car.”For now, firefighters trained to be boat pilots navigate the rescue boat along the Columbia River — anywhere from Martin Island to Frenchman’s Bar.

When do the matches start and where to watch itNone of the matches will start before 4:05 pm local time, 1:35 pm IST and 8:05 am GMT. The specific time of every match is listed below under the ‘Full Schedule’ section.There is no live television coverage of the tournament in India and neither will the tournament be officially streamed. Astro-Go will provide live streaming of the tournament in Malaysia. Sultan Azlan Shah Cup preview India men’s hockey team at Asian Games.Ryan Pierse/Getty ImagesThe defending champion of the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup is Australia but the team from Down Under will not be participating in this edition of the tournament and neither has runner-up England travelled to Ipoh. This opens up the field significantly for India. The Indian team finished fifth last time but courtesy their ranking compared to the other participating teams, they are the firm favourites to lift the trophy. India will take on Japan in the opening encounter of the tournament and they have the wood over the Japanese team. Although the Samurais did not travel to Ipoh last year, the two sides last met in 2017 when India won the thrilling encounter 4-1. Since then, the two sides have met on four occasions and India has got the better of the Japanese hockey team on every one of them. The six teams that will participate in this edition of the tournament are India, Japan, Canada, Malaysia, Poland and South Korea. The format of the tournament is such that each team will play every other team once to determine their respective positions on the points table. The team that will finish as the top two will go on to play the final and decide the champion. The two teams following the top two will battle it out in a third-place match while the remaining two teams will clash to avoid the wooden spoon.

He said that last year the Texas Medical Center’s annual survey compared Texas to the rest of the country, and found that Texans are worse off when it comes to being able to buy insurance.“That then extends to their children, and so the fact that this does effect Texas almost out of proportion is not surprising,” Garson said.Experts also point to immigration policy and a fear of interacting with the government as factors contributing to the number of uninsured children.“We have a lot of kids who are citizens, but their parents are immigrants and those parents may be very scared today about interacting with the government and enrolling their children in public health coverage options,” Alker said. “Latino children do have the highest uninsured rates in Texas, and that’s a population that’s probably also being impacted by this fear of interacting with government.”Several experts said the increase in uninsured children signals a need for policy changes.“Children are more likely to be insured than adults because we are fortunate to have Medicaid and CHIP and so when their rates start dropping it’s like the canary in the coal mine because they have the best avenues for insurance,” Head of the Episcopal Health Foundation, Elena Marks, told Houston Matters.Garson echoed this sentiment, saying that one of the primary solutions to ensuring more children are covered is to address the cost of healthcare.“We got to reduce the price of healthcare,” he said. “We’re never going to get everybody covered for health insurance unless health insurance and the cost of care goes down.” X
