(Follow Live Updates Here)Smith was named captain in place of MS Dhoni for the 10th season and led in the first two matches. The Australian star, who was in stunning form against India in the Test series, started  off the IPL with a bang, smashing an unbeaten 84 against Mumbai Indians. However, he oversaw a defeat against Kings XI Punjab and scored 26.Rahane, who had stood in for the injured Virat Kohli for the Dharamsala Test, was once again handed the rein in the IPL.The Indian vice-captain had an average series against Australia but discovered form once again with a scintillating half-century against the Mumbai Indians. It remains to be seen where Rahane gets Dhoni to bat in the RPS line-up.Kohli has openly expressed his desire to see Dhoni bat higher up the order for India and the Jharkhand wicketkeeper batsman delivered with his first ODI hundred since 2013 and a maiden T20 International fifty. RPS made three changes with Faf du Plessis replacing Smith, Adam Zampa coming in place of Dan Christian while Rahul Tripathi replaced Manoj Tiwary.Manoj had to return home after his father passed away.last_img read more

first_imgRobbie McCormack played Rugby League for the Newcastle Knights between 1988 and 1996. He played 154 games for the Knights, primarily at hooker, played for NSW Country in 1993 and 1994, played State of Origin in 1993 and is playing at his first National Touch League (NTL) tournament this year. After playing touch as a child Robbie had to give it up, as his potential in rugby league began to be fulfilled. During his time at the Knights, he was unable to stay involved with touch footy because coaching staff believed playing an alternative form of football would teach the players bad habits and impact upon their league skills and results. But now his rugby league days are finished and he’s suited up for the Hunter-Western Hornets Mens 35 years team at this year’s senior NTL’s. “I basically got asked by a mate to play for Newcastle in their Mens 35’s and then ended up here. It’s all another step up, the Country Cup was big, then I was blown away by the State Cup, which was even bigger and now the NTL’s”, he says. “The organisation and professionalism is fantastic, but mostly I’m having a lot of fun and just really enjoying playing, it’s great to see the occasional league mate out here as well.” Cliff Lyons is one of those mates who is also here at the NTL, playing Mens 40 years for the Sydney Scorpions. After a league career spanning 1986-1999, Lyons came away with over 330 games for the Manly Sea Eagles, two premierships, two World Sevens titles, six tests for Australia, six State of Origins and the list goes on. It’s his third NTL and his team started the tournament well with an 8-2 win over Tropical Queensland Cyclones. For players like Robbie and Cliff, the chance to compete in a National Tournament in the Senior divisions, is something incredibly worthwhile. “It’s so good to be back competing and playing for fun but also to win”, says Robbie. “After having a few years off from this sort of competition, it really brings it back to you and it’s great!” “Touch football goes up and back so quickly, but thankfully a lot of the rugby league skills and training programs we’ve done, combined with the touch football work, give us more options during games”, he says. Cliff played touch all through his NRL career and also believes that the game of touch improved his speed and fitness, especially being six players a side, and would do the same for others. For many young touch footballers, the attraction of playing rugby league can draw them away from the lower-profile sport of touch football. Benji Marshall is starring for Wests Tigers in the NRL and looks like he will have a successful career. What many sports trivia buffs may not realise is that Benji was a part of Australia’s winning Mixed Open team that won last year’s World Cup in Japan and he took home the International award for Player of the Series. Enjoy your career, but don’t forget touch football. That’s the message from players like Cliff and Robbie. “Go for the career and money in league, if that’s what you need”, says Cliff. “But don’t forget to come back to touch when you’ve finished, it’s always here and it’s a great sport”, he says. “Events like the NTL’s are great, I just keep enjoying myself and coming back each year.” Media contact: Rachel Moyle, 0422233165last_img read more

first_imgOTTAWA — Canada’s privacy watchdog is warning marijuana users who are worried about their personal information being collected to pay with cash rather than plastic.Privacy Commissioner Daniel Therrien gives the advice in a statement on his website trying to help pot sellers and buyers understand their privacy rights.The statement says marijuana remains illegal in most countries making the personal information of Canadian marijuana users even more sensitive.Some countries could bar entry to individuals if they know they have purchased cannabis, even lawfully.Therrien suggests you can avoid the collection of your personal information by using cash instead of credit cards when buying pot from legal retail outlets.However this option is not available to many Canadians, as some provinces have only a limited number of retail stores and in Ontario, legal cannabis is only available for purchase online for several more months.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Amsterdam –  Morocco topped the favorite travel destinations for Dutch tourists, according to a survey conducted by Dutch leading travel website, Riksja Travel.Morocco came ahead of Ecuador and Thailand in the survey that included around 14,000 participants.The twelve-question survey aimed at unveiling the choices and expectations of Dutch travelers. The website noted that Morocco stands as an attractive travel destination with its rich and diversified offer and its proximity to Europe.According to figures released by the Moroccan tourism office (ONMT), around 560,000 Dutch tourists visited Morocco in 2013, that is a 3.7% rise compared to 2012. A rate of 41% of Dutch tourists visited Marrakech, followed by Agadir with 31% and Essaouira 23%.

United People’s Freedom Alliance (UPFA) Parliamentarian Priyankara Jayarathne was sworn in today as the State Minister of Local Government and Provincial Councils, before President Maithripala Sirisena at the Presidential Secretariat.Meanwhile Dushmantha Mithrapala was sworn in as the Deputy Minister of Buddha Shasana before the president. Mithrapala is also the current Deputy Minister of Justice.

In his message marking the Day, Secretary-General Kofi Annan drew attention to the ongoing preparations at UN Headquarters on the recently established Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, which he called “a pioneering initiative that aims at giving indigenous peoples the chance to bring their concerns to the attention of the international community.” The Forum, which will meet for the first time in May 2002, will include 16 independent experts – half of them nominated by indigenous peoples.During a press conference today in New York, the Secretary of the UN Working Group on Indigenous Populations, Julian Burger, said the Forum would be reporting at a high level, directly to the Economic and Social Council. “From our point of view, that’s a very interesting development: that indigenous people will be high up in the hierarchy in our system in the UN,” he said, adding that another unique feature is that the Forum has a very broad mandate beyond human rights issues – covering such areas as development, health, education and culture. At the same press conference, Marciel Arias, a Kuna Indian from Panama, said it had been difficult in the past for indigenous people to participate in UN meetings. “Indigenous associations would like to go even further, but we understand that this [Forum] constitutes the first step as we move to a higher level within the UN,” he said. “We hope that this Forum will play a role – an important one – to make governments more aware, and indigenous organizations more aware as well, so that they will be more interested in participating.” In his message commemorating the Day, the President of the UN General Assembly, Harri Holkeri of Finland, said an important goal of the International Decade of the World’s Indigenous People (1995-2004) was to strengthen global cooperation on the challenges facing indigenous societies. Making consultation an integral part of the planning and implementation of programmes would enhance the outcome of such endeavours and encourage concerned groups to become involved, he said. To mark the Day, special activities are scheduled in New York, with performances by the Mohawk Singers and Dancers and a traditional Sacred Pipe Ceremony carried out by Dr. Arvol Looking Horse – the 19th generation keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe. read more

In a process supervised by Afghan elders, the weapons are being delivered to collection points in Sholgareh district – the scene of four separate conflicts over the past six months – by members of the Jamiat, Jumbesh and Hizb-e-Wahdat factions.They are then transported to military depots outside Mazar-i-Sharif, to be registered and kept under guard by Jamiat and Jumbesh forces – with the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) empowered to monitor their safekeeping.The process is taking place under the auspices of the multi-party Security Commission in Mazar-i-Sharif, observed and facilitated by UNAMA. The UN Mission reports unanimous support for the exercise by the people of Sholgareh district, as well as widespread agreement on expanding disarmament in the region.

According to a news release issued by the ICC, the Appeals Chamber found, by majority, that the Court’s Trial Chamber III – which delivered the original sentence – had “erred on two important issues”, including the wrongful conviction of Mr. Bemba “for specific criminal acts that were outside the scope of the charges as confirmed.”It added that the Trial Chamber made serious errors in its assessment of whether Mr. Bemba took all necessary and reasonable measures to prevent, repress or punish the commission by his subordinates of the other crimes within the scope of the case.“More specifically, the Trial Chamber erred in its evaluation of Mr. Bemba’s motivation and the measures that he could have taken in light of the limitations he faced in investigating and prosecuting crimes as a remote commander sending troops to a foreign country; in whether he made efforts to refer the allegations of crimes to the Central African Republic (CAR) authorities; and in whether he intentionally limited the mandate of commissions and inquiries that he established,” added the news release.Furthermore, in the view of the Appeals Chamber majority, there was an apparent discrepancy between the limited number of crimes within the case’s scope for which Mr. Bemba was held responsible and the Trial Chamber’s assessment of which measures he should have taken.Mr. Bemba will, however, remain in detention on account of a different case in which he has been convicted of offences against the administration of justice, pending a decision of Trial Chamber VII, within the ICC.In 2016, Mr. Bemba was originally sentenced to 18 years in prison, after the Chamber found him “guilty beyond reasonable doubt” as a military commander responsible for two counts of crimes against humanity (murder and rape) and three counts of war crimes (murder, rape, and pillaging) committed in the Central African Republic between October 2002 and March 2003. read more

Chicago Bears linebacker Lance Briggs (right) sacks New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning at Soldier Field Oct. 10. The Bears won, 27-21.Credit: Courtesy of MCTTwelve dollars. That’s all I spent on a New York Giants football sweatshirt that I’m truthfully too scared to wear at the risk of being ridiculed. It’s hard enough being a fan of a football team in a different state, but it’s even harder when that team has yet to win one of its six games this season.I was born and raised in New Jersey, so being a New York Giants fan is all I’ve ever known. I was taught that the Giants are the best and that I’m supposed to hate the Philadelphia Eagles … which I do. Being a fan of the G-men has never been a problem until this season.Coach Tom Coughlin is 67 and is in his 10th year coaching the team. He’s one of the oldest NFL coaches ever, but after earning a pair of Super Bowl rings for the Giants, it doesn’t appear he’ll be going away anytime soon.The Giants have won two Super Bowls in the last six years (2008 and 2012). With a history like that, you would think that they would be a team to fear. This year, not so much. They’ve had their worst start to a season since 1976 and quarterback Eli Manning has had arguably the worst season of his career, currently leading the league in interceptions with 15. Ouch. That’s gotta be rough while his big brother Peyton and the Broncos are having an awesome season, winning their first six games and leading the league in total offense, passing yards and points scored.Since I’m a fan of Ohio State football as well, I can’t imagine how current Giant players, former Buckeyes Jonathan Hankins and Jim Cordle feel right now. Playing on the OSU football team has spoiled them into not really knowing what a losing consistently feels like. In Cordle’s five years at OSU (he redshirted in 2005), the team was a combined 54-10, and in Hankins’ three years, the Buckeyes were 30-8, including the 12 vacated wins in 2010.My goal is not to bash the team I’ve grown up watching, it’s to share a little bit of my disappointment OSU fans might not understand. This is the first time my friends who are Cleveland Browns (3-3) fans are laughing at me.In my mind, this season is over for the Giants. Will I still watch the games? Yes. Will I still have hope that they can win a game? Of course. Will I wear that $12 sweatshirt anytime soon? To be determined. But I’m pretty sure it’s impossible to come anywhere close to the playoffs at this point, so my heart is a little broken for them. read more

first_imgThis week is the Build conference being held in Anaheim, California. Microsoft is using it as the official unveiling of Windows 8 to the world. Usually, an unveiling such as this is followed with calls for “when can I play with it?” Well, the answer to that question is “tonight”.When Microsoft was desperately trying to make up for the car wreck that was Windows Vista, they decided to release previews of Windows 7 really early for anyone to download and try. It worked really well. Microsoft got loads of feedback with which to improve their next-gen operating system, and anyone interested got a new OS to play with.That same mentality is being continued with Windows 8, and later today a developer preview of the new OS will become available. More specifically, at 8pm PST you will be able to download either a 32-bit or 64-bit ISO from the Microsoft Dev Center website. Which you choose to get depends on whether you are a developer or not: only the 32-bit version will come with development tools.Now we must stress that this is by no means final software, but the presentation currently streaming live on the Build Windows website shows an OS that looks very usable already. Microsoft has also promised to include a number of sample applications for developers to play with.You won’t be able to install this developer preview alongside another OS as it requires a clean install. I take that to mean you can still install it as a virtual machine, however, using software like that offered by VMWare or VirtualBox. Microsoft also intends to roll out regular updates and drivers, so if your install doesn’t work out tonight, keep checking the developer site as next week it may have the drivers you need.For those desperate to see the new Metro style applications and interface first hand, there is no better way to experience it at the moment.Read more at Building Windows 8last_img read more

Emelia Gorecka of Great Britain, will look to continue the recent success for U.K. runners including 2014 Champion Julia Bleasdale. Gorecka was a 2013 European Junior Champion over 3000m and has a 5000m best of 15:07. Her top challengers include Jessica O’Connell, who represented Canada at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and finished was 4th in Carlsbad in 2015. They will be joined by Mexico’s Brenda Flores Munoz, a gold and silver medal from the 2015 Pan Am Gameswho owns a 15.30.87 personal best for 5000m.Top Americans will be joining the field on the women’s side led by Sarah Brown, a nine-time track and cross country All-American at the University of Tennessee and Alycia Cridebring, who has a personal best of 15.35.34 for 5000m.
