first_imgFor a country obsessed with cricket, it isnt easy being a household name if you play another sport. But India’s football team captain Sunil Chhetri has managed to do just that as he is undoubtedly the face of the game in this country. From a young striker who played second fiddle to the legendary Bhaichung Bhutia to taking on the leaders mantle with elan, Chhetri had done it all.With 67 goals in his kitty, Chhetri is the second highest international goal-scorer among active players ahead of even Lionel Messi. But what sets the skipper apart from all, is his humility and desire to keep going for the country.Speaking to IANS on the road ahead both for him and the national team, Chhetri said he will look to keep representing the country till his body permits him to as it has been an absolute honour for him to wear the national jersey.”I’m happy to do it for as long as my body allows me to. It has been the biggest honour of my life and career to play for the country and I will keep at it as long as I am capable of doing it,” he said.While Chhetri isn’t getting any younger, one area of concern is the lack of strikers who can match his class. The Indian forward feels that this is something that clubs in the country need to take notice of and work towards improving the situation.”We, as a country, haven’t been able to produce the number of strikers we should have over the last five to seven years and there are multiple reasons for this.advertisement”The over-reliance of clubs on foreign strikers was a trend that seeped some years ago and that has stayed. That said, players playing in the position need to show more hunger and desire to reach the potential they are capable of, only then will coaches be willing to take a chance with them. It’s a tough situation from everyone’s point of view.”Also, a lot of emphasis should be given to finishing skills from a young age. It isn’t an easy skill to acquire and is probably the most important one in a game. Repeated and correct training from a very young age will go a long way in fixing this problem. The small details need to be drilled in early,” he explained.While he has done brilliantly for the country, his journey with Bengaluru FC has also been one to treasure as a player and the senior statesman feels that the kind of support that is available at the club makes it a dream to play there. In fact, he says that it has been one of the best rides to play for Bengaluru FC.”There is no one reason that’s responsible for the success the club and I have both enjoyed over the last six seasons. There were systems set on and off the pitch at the onset and these systems were followed religiously.”Everyone at the club — from the ball boy to the owners — have pushed and pulled in the same direction and our success is a result of that. Personally, I haven’t been happier and I’m blessed to have played under three fantastic coaches at BFC, all of whom have brought out the best in me,” he said.Emphasising on Bhutia’s influence in his career, Chhetri said: “Bhaichung bhai had a big influence on me and I was fortunate enough to spend a considerable amount of time with him while I had just begun my career as a professional footballer. His work ethic and desire were second to none and he always looked out for me.”Harping on the need for clubs to also take responsibility in creating talented strikers, Chhetri further added: “Like I said, everyone involved in the game needs to take the onus of starting early. What will also help is having enough games for the reserve teams, week in, week out. For example if Daniel doesn’t get a game for Delhi, or Manveer for Goa, they need to be able to fall back on a reserve team game that week. Efforts like these will go a long way in making our No. 9s better.”Also Read | Honoured by kind gesture of Football Delhi: Sunil Chhetri on receiving 1st-ever Football RatnaAlso Read | Indian football needs actively involved Chhetri even after retirement, says Luis GarciaAlso Watch | Love the energy of the Indian players in the IPL before World Cup: Virat Kohliadvertisementlast_img read more

Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Blackstenius completed the turnaround three minutes after the restart, earning Sweden a first win against Germany at a major tournament since 1995 – a run that included losses in the finals of Euro 2001, the 2003 World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games.Almuth Schult did well to keep out Jakobsson before Germany moved in front in the 16th minute.

first_imgPhnom Penh: Khmer Rouge ‘brother number two’ Nuon Chea died Sunday aged 93, a spokesman for the Cambodia tribunal where he was convicted of genocide and crimes against humanity said. “We can confirm that defendant Nuon Chea… passed away this evening on 4 August 2019 at Khmer Soviet Friendship hospital,” said Neth Pheaktra, spokesman for the tribunal. The cause of his death was not given. The reign of terror led by “Brother Number 1” Pol Pot left some two million Cambodians dead from overwork, starvation and mass executions from 1975 to 1979. But Nuon Chea, considered the Khmer Rouge’s chief ideologue, was not arrested until 2007.

The UN-backed court sentenced him to life in prison last year after he was found guilty of genocide against the ethnic Vietnamese and Cham Muslim minority group. His lawyers had planned to appeal. Nuon Chea and the sole surviving defendant on trial, Khieu Samphan, were previously handed life sentences in 2014 over the forced evacuation of Phnom Penh in 1975, when Khmer Rouge troops drove the population of the capital into the countryside.

It has convicted only three people so far and cost more than 300 million. Former Khmer Rouge foreign minister Ieng Sary and his wife died without facing justice, while Pol Pot passed away in 1998. Prime Minister Hun Sen, a former Khmer Rouge cadre, has warned against future investigations, claiming it would plunge the country into chaos. Tribunal watchers believe that last year’s ruling will be the final verdict, raising questions about the court’s legacy in a country where many are too young to remember the Khmer Rouge. Youk Chhang, head of the country’s pre-eminent Khmer Rouge archive, the Documentation Centre of Cambodia, said Nuon Chea was “born innocent but he committed sin and so he died with sin”.last_img read more


first_imgNew Delhi: Radiowaves unsold in past auctions cost India an estimated Rs 5.4 lakh crores in economic losses, claimed industry body Broadband India Forum, urging the government to ensure adequacy and “reasonable” rates for upcoming 5G auction. BIF said the reserve price of 5G spectrum is “too high”, works out to be 4 times higher than other countries and “needs urgent revision”. Spectrum price in India is, by far, the single most important factor in determining the fate of an auction, its success or failure, BIF said, adding prices should trigger maximum sale and hence optimal realisation of direct and indirect benefits, and not be driven by short-term financial gains. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalThe comments of the industry body comes ahead of a crucial meeting of Digital Communications Commission later this week, which will finalise various modalities of spectrum auction and price of radiowaves. The auction is expected to take place in the current financial year. “Every unsuccessful mobile spectrum auction has severe implications not only in terms of spectrum remaining unsold but also in terms of valuable economic benefit lost as a result of this unsold spectrum remaining idle,” Broadband India Forum (BIF) said in a statement. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boostIn the last auctions held in October 2016, over 1300 MHz of radio spectrum (or 59 per cent) remained unsold, leading to significant unrealised potential, it said. Explaining the math behind Rs 5.4 lakh crore economic loss it has estimated, BIF said that only about 60 per cent of the spectrum put up for auction, since 2010, has been sold and went on to link this to the financial impact of unsold spectrum. “Adopting a conservative approach, India had 762 million active mobile connections in 2016, served by over 3800 MHz of spectrum allocated to licensees. This indicates that the idle spectrum with government could enable connectivity for roughly 278 million additional active connections,” it said, adding that extra connections correspond to 21 per cent of the population. “If 10 per cent increase in tele-density leads to an increase of 1.9 per cent in GDP…the financial cost of this idle spectrum can then be estimated to be Rs 5.40 lakh crores, or over 160 per cent of the financial benefit of Rs 3.30 lakh crores from all spectrum auctions so far,” it said. Due to the high reserve prices in past auctions, there is an accumulated unsold spectrum, related financial cost, and consumers too have lost out on quality of services, it lamented. “…the true purpose of setting a reserve price for spectrum is to deter non-serious players from participating in the auction, but at the same time, ensuring a rational price point be offered, so as to enable discovering a vibrant realisation of the true market price, and successful participation from committed companies. This purpose should not get misled in the pursuit of short-term financial gains,” TV Ramachandran, President, Broadband India Forum said. Moreover, the quantum of 5G spectrum that has been allocated for the upcoming auctions is not enough for a country of India size and density, BIF said. “The amount of spectrum being made available for 5G in India is 175 MHz, which is almost half of the US. Additionally, the present 5G reserve price (3.5 GHz band) at Rs 492 crore/MHz is also significantly in deviation with international norms,” BIF said, adding that these problems pose a significant challenge to 5G uptake in the country.last_img read more

by David Friend, The Canadian Press Posted Jan 4, 2013 6:34 pm MDT OAKVILLE, Ont. – Ottawa has renewed the $250 million investment fund that puts cash aside for car companies and their suppliers, part of a five-year plan to help keep the auto manufacturing industry thriving in Canada.Prime Minister Stephen Harper, speaking at the Ford plant in Oakville, Ont. on Friday, said the Automotive Innovation Fund has helped Canada’s auto sector become more innovative, agile and competitive.“The rebound of our auto sector in this country is one of Canada’s biggest economic and industrial success stories of the last five years,” said Harper, while cautioning the “global economy remains troubled.”“Therefore I’m pleased to announce today that our government will make another significant five-year investment in the automotive innovation fund.”The fund, established in the 2008 federal budget, requires companies to invest their own money to access government cash, which must be paid back in full. Only large-scale research and development projects valued at more than $75 million are considered.Ford, Canadian auto parts maker Magna International (TSX:MG) and Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada are among the companies that have drawn money from the fund for projects.Harper noted the automotive industry — “the engine of southern Ontario’s manufacturing economy” — was hit especially hard during the 2008-9 recession.“For a while it seemed like its very existence was in real danger.”Canadian Auto Workers union president Ken Lewenza, who attended the announcement, said he’d like to see conditions added to the funding, specifically for “employment levels to remain consistently high, if not enhanced.”Lewenza said the loan agreements “ought to have a commitment to jobs because the last time the Ford Motor Co. got a huge boost at this Oakville facility it coincided with significant job loss in Windsor.”The five-year renewal to the innovation fund comes after a controversial government bailout of the auto industry — including billions to help General Motors and Chrysler get through court-supervised restructurings.The CAW complained last month when GM Canada said it will shift production of the Chevrolet Camaro from Oshawa, Ont., east of Toronto to a plant in Michigan in 2015. The CAW says the move will cost 1,000 jobs at the Oshawa complex.Ontario has seen traditional Detroit Three carmakers — GM, Ford and Chrysler — cut tens of thousands of jobs in the last decade as their parent companies restructured in the United States.In 2011, Ford closed its St. Thomas, Ont., while investing in plants in the U.S.Canada faces growing competition from both the U.S. and Mexico, where labour costs are cheaper for both automakers and auto parts manufacturers, partly due to the strength of the loonie. Some U.S. states have also launched government grants and other financial assistance programs to drive manufacturing into their regions.The federal and Ontario governments contributed $10.6 billion to the U.S. government’s bailout of General Motors during the recession. GM has repaid the loans but the Canadian governments continue to own shares received for some of the funding provided to keep the company from going out of business in 2009.When asked about the renewal in the context of the GM move, Harper defended the fund.“What we have invested from taxpayer dollars has been paid back many, many times to the taxpayer and will continue to be paid many, many times to the taxpayer back in terms of direct repayments but also economic activity,” he said.“These have been very good investments for Canada.”“Our objective remains to sell those shares in a way that … attempts to maximize the value for the Canadian taxpayer,” he added.The renewal of the fund mark a further recognition of the importance of the domestic auto sector, said Canadian Vehicle Manufacturers Association president Mark Nantais in a statement.“Canada’s auto industry is better positioned to compete and win new investment which will help to drive the economy and create more opportunities for Canadians,” he said.

© UNICEF/VelasquezAt a school on the outskirts of Caracas, Venezuela, a UNICEF representative speaks to a mother who brought her young daughter for nutrition screening. (3 June 2019)Child health ‘grim’ and getting worse: UNICEFFor many of those who have remained in Venezuela, the situation is dire, and around a third of children in the country need help accessing basic nutrition, health and education services, the UN Children’s Fund, UNICEF, said on Friday.Children’s needs must always remain above politics Paloma Escudero, UNICEF Director of CommunicationThe UN agency announced that it has ramped up aid since the beginning of the year, in the form of 55 tons of health supplies distributed to 25 hospitals in the most affected states of Caracas, Miranda, Zulia, Bolivar and Táchira. They include midwifery kits, antibiotics and malaria treatment.“As the country grapples with the impact of a devastating economic and political crisis, we will continue to provide its most vulnerable children, wherever they are, with the humanitarian support they need”, said Paloma Escudero, UNICEF Director of Communication. “Children’s needs must always remain above politics.”On her return from a recent visit, Ms. Escudero said that people in Venezuela had told her the health situation was “grim”, adding that, because of a shortage of medicine, and an exodus of many doctors and nurses, medical centres are running at minimum capacity.Many mobile health units and ambulances are grounded due to a lack of spare parts, she said, and, with worsening fuel shortages, some pregnant women cannot even make it to health centres. “For a country that made remarkable progress for decades on the quality of its health care, this is quite dramatic.”The UN agencies operating in Venezuela have urged donors to increase funding, so that they can scale up their response to the crisis. IOM said that the humanitarian Regional Refugee and Migrant Response Plan (RMRP) launched last December is only 21 percent funded. UNICEF said that flexible funding is needed to allow the agency to reach children in need with quality support. In a joint statement, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR), described the scale of the exodus as “staggering”, with the number of displaced people jumping by a million over a seven-month period, from November 2018.“These alarming figures highlight the urgent need to support host communities in the receiving countries”, said Eduardo Stein, joint UNHCR-IOM Special Representative for Venezuelan refugees and migrants. “Latin American and Caribbean countries are doing their part to respond to this unprecedented crisis, but they cannot be expected to continue doing it without international help.”Most of the Venezuelans who have fled, are being hosted in Latin America: more than half are in Colombia and Peru, followed by Chile, Ecuador, Argentina and Brazil. read more


Co-offensive coordinator Ryan Day prior to the Ohio State- Oklahoma game on Sep. 9. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorOhio State co-offensive coordinator Ryan Day will likely be the next Urban Meyer assistant coach to be hired elsewhere as a head coach. It just won’t happen this year.Meyer said Wednesday during his press conference on Early Signing Day that Day turned down an offer to be a head coach at a program in the Southeastern Conference.“Coach Day had the opportunity to potentially be a head coach in the SEC and decided to stay at Ohio State,” Meyer said. “He’s done a phenomenal job for us. There have been other coaches on our staff have opportunities to move on and they haven’t, so this coaching staff is very strong right now.”Day was hired last January and inked a two-year contract with Ohio State. He was paid a base salary of $400,000 this season, but that will increase to $800,000 next season.There were a total of six SEC head coach positions open this offseason. Mississippi State, Texas A&M, Florida, Tennessee, Arkansas and Ole Miss have all filled those positions. It’s unclear which one of those positions offered the job to Day.Day told reporters in the locker room after the Big Ten championship game that he had not been contacted by another school for another job at that point.Day, also the quarterbacks coach, was largely responsible for a turnaround of the Ohio State offense in 2017. The Buckeyes averaged the fifth-most points per game in the country with 42.5 and the passing offense ranked 28th in 2017 with an average of 274.2 yards compared to 81st in 2016 with 213.9 yards. read more

Depuis samedi, celui-ci est également en proie à un incendie qui a déjà détruit quelque 380 hectares.Aujourd’hui, cet incendie est considéré comme “sous contrôle”, grâce à l’intervention de 145 pompiers, d’un hélicoptère, d’un Canadair et d’un Trackair, et malgré des reprises de feu dues au vent. Mais l’intervention s’est avérée particulièrement difficile car le site est marécageux, tourbeux et assez inaccessible.

first_img Blue Origin, Jeff Bezos’ space company, completed a record-breaking test flight of its New Shepard suborbital spacecraft on Thursday.The rocket, which blasted off from Blue Origin’s facility in West Texas at 9:35 a.m. EST, was the first time Blue Origin launched and landed one of its spacecrafts five times, CNBC reported. The NS-11 Mission, which was the 11th test flight of Blue Origin’s New Shepard rocket, enabled 38 different science payloads for customers, including nine experiments from NASA, to be carried to suborbital space and back, Space.com noted.During the test flight, the New Shepard booster launched its capsule into suborbital space from the Texas-based launch site and then returned to Earth for a vertical landing. The capsule continued on a suborbital trajectory, re-entered our planet’s atmosphere, and made a parachute landing near Blue Origin’s original launch area.The New Shepard rocket sent Blue Origin’s capsule to an altitude of 346,406 feet and preliminary data indicated that the rocket reached almost Mach 3 on its way up (almost three times the speed of sound), with the mission lasting a little over 10 minutes.3-2-1… LIFTOFF! @BlueOrigin’s #NewShepard rocket just launched carrying nine @NASA_Technology-supported payloads, including a 3D printer for making metal parts, a medical suction device and more.
