Hunt for next India coach: Why it is now between Ravi Shastri and Virender Sehwag

first_imgCricket Advisory Committee (CAC) member Sourav Ganguly said there would be no immediate announcement of the next India coach and the CAC was in fact waiting to speak with skipper Virat Kohli.WATCH FULL VIDEOGanguly, VVS Laxman and Sachin on Monday interviewed five candidates for the India coach – Lalchand Rajput, Virender Sehwag, Richard Pybus, Tom Moody and Ravi Shastri. Phil Simmons was not interviewed because he was not available, Ganguly said.However, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) sources confirm to India Today that the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) is keen on an Indian coach.Therefore, it is now a race between Ravi Shastri and Virender Sehwag.They feel the presentations were at par and that is the case there is no reason to look beyond an Indian. More importantly and interestingly, the argument being made is Ravi Shastri, who has played and won so many matches for India was removed after two years and Anil Kumble — India’s biggest match winner had to go after a year and this is sending a very poor signal to the world that Indians can’t run their own team and we need a foreigner to do so.CAC members feel that to assume Shastri or Sehwag, legends of Indian cricket can’t run a team while a player like Tom Moody can is unfortunate.They say that how come Duncan Fletcher was given a long rope while Shastri or Kumble had to give way after short bursts?Based on all of these assumptions it is now a two horse race between Shastri and Sehwag while Moody has only a very small outside chance.advertisementlast_img read more

NYK Rolls Out Digital Ship Management Platform

first_imgzoomIllustration. Image Courtesy: Pixabay under CC0 Creative Commons license The NYK Group has launched a new platform for ship management that would reduce onboard duties and make use of Big Data.Named NiBiKi, the platform digitalizes applications, approval, and operation workflow within the safety management system.By following the instructions and inputting appropriate information in provided forms, crews can correctly apply for approval, and that information can be automatically recorded, thus ensuring appropriate procedures by the crews, according to the company.Moreover, the NiBiKi system enables data to be shared between the ship operation company and the management company, and to be accumulated for Big Data analysis.The data will be shared with five ship-management companies overseeing about 260 vessels. The companies are located in Singapore, Tokyo, London, Taipei and Kobe.The group intends to proactively use Big Data for further safety improvements and develop a more comprehensive system that includes crew performance records, such as education and drills completed. As explained, NYK seeks to grasp the tendency of machinery failure and accidents caused by the crew to realize “zero downtime” together with ship management companies.last_img read more

Province announces funding for new elementary school by Fort St John Hospital

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Province has announced new funding to build a new elementary school in Fort St. John across from the Fort St. John Hospital.The Province is providing up to $30.8 million to build the school and the Peace River North School District will contribute $300,000. Construction is set to begin summer 2019. The school is scheduled to open in fall 2021, with 505 spaces for students in kindergarten to Grade 6. The school will be located across the street from the Fort St. John Hospital on 112th Avenue.“Our government has committed to addressing the backlog of capital projects in fast-growing communities. We’re investing in our children and working hard to build schools that are desperately needed,” said Rob Fleming, Minister of Education. “Students deserve to go to school in modern, healthy learning environments, so they can thrive in their education, and succeed in life.” The new school will accommodate the growing population in Fort St. John. Since 2012, the city’s hospital has had more than 600 births each year. The birth rate, combined with 2016 Statistics Canada Census data, indicates there may be hundreds of new students entering the school system yearly for the foreseeable future.“We’re excited to have approval from the Ministry of Education to move forward on a second new elementary school,” said Jaret Thompson, Peace River North School Board deputy chair. “Our district has been challenged with space pressures for some time, and we’re glad to begin work on this second innovative learning space, situated in the northeast side of the city.”Plans for the two-storey facility include a neighbourhood learning centre with child care, before-and-after school care and multi-purpose spaces for community use. Given the harsh winter climate in northern B.C., indoor sports and activity areas are important. This space will contribute to Fort St. John’s goal of being a healthier community.“School District 60 (Peace River North) is committed to providing our students with innovative learning spaces in which they can develop their full potential,” said Dave Sloan, Peace River North School District superintendent. “New schools, such as the one being announced today, help us meet that commitment by providing new spaces for our rapidly growing student population.”last_img read more

Knot Trump Toronto clothier sells Dump Trump ties in honour of slain

by David Hodges, The Canadian Press Posted Aug 5, 2016 10:51 am MDT Last Updated Aug 5, 2016 at 1:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Andre Vassi, the owner and designer of Vassi Meanswear, poses for a photograph with his collection of “Dump Trump” ties in Toronto on Friday, August 5, 2016. Galvanized by public outrage over Donald Trump’s divisive U.S. presidential campaign, a Toronto clothier is launching a series of “Dump Trump” ties – with plans to donate all proceeds to charity, including one chosen by the Gold Star family of fallen Muslim American soldier Kumanyu Khan. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Nathan Denette ‘Knot’ Trump: Toronto clothier sells ‘Dump Trump’ ties in honour of slain soldier TORONTO – Galvanized by public outrage over Donald Trump’s divisive U.S. presidential campaign, a Toronto clothier is launching a series of “Dump Trump” ties — with plans to donate all proceeds to charity, including one chosen by the family of a fallen Muslim-American soldier.Andre Vassi, the owner and designer of Vassi Menswear, first conceived of the ties when Trump mocked a New York Times reporter last November for his physical disability.“That was the tipping point,” he said.“I usually don’t get involved in politics but this is not about politics when you see a presidential nominee making fun of a disabled person. To me, that is absolutely horrible.”Trump’s recent attack on the family of Humayun Khan — who spoke out against the real estate tycoon at the recent Democratic National Convention — only further spurred him to act, Vassi said.“Many Canadians, myself included, were deeply disappointed by Trump’s comments and I think it’s important to send the Khans a message that Canadians stand with them, regardless of personal politics.“I had to create something. So that’s what I did.”Vassi’s first tie features a playful design of multi-coloured dump trucks on the front and a bold “Dump Trump” statement on text in the back, aimed at embracing the public’s anti-Trump sentiments and to have “a little fun with the presidential process from north of the border.”More serious, though, is a second tie that features gold stars on the front, a purple heart in the lower left corner of the tie and the initials HK in honour of Humayun Khan, the U.S. Army captain killed while serving in Iraq.All proceeds from Vassi’s first “Dump Trump” tie will be donated to the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre to honour one of Vassi’s family members who succumbed to his disease.“That is for my cousin, who was more like a brother to me,” Vassi said. “That has profound meaning for me.”Similarly, all profits from the sale of the Gold Star ties will also go to a charitable cause — an American anti-bullying charity of the Khans’ choice, said Vassi, who is making attempts to get in touch with the family and would like to send them a tie keepsake to express his sympathy to them.Vassi said “Dump Trump” ties were handmade in Italy from 100 per cent silk and will retail for $100 a piece, with about $35 per sale going directly to charity.While the “Dump Trump” tie has already been available for pre-sale at Vassi’s brick-and-mortar Bay Street location as well as on his company’s website, customers will be able to check out the ties in the store next Wednesday.So far about 80 per cent of the 350 “Dump Trump” ties have been pre-ordered, and based on how well the remaining stock moves Vassi may order another shipment.As for the Gold Star tie, Vassi is actively working to have it produced and ready to move by late September. While he hasn’t confirmed an order number, he anticipates ordering as many as 1,000 ties if he feels demand is there. “These types of ties have a short window of time, so it’s not like I could keep them around two years from now,” he said.Because of the novelty of the ties, Vassi said few manufacturers are willing to produce such small quantities, so he sought out an Italian manufacturer who was able to turn around the first order of ties in about six weeks.Now he’s seeking an American manufacturing partner willing to produce a small run of the Gold Star ties.“I would love to find a quality American tie maker to produce this tie in honour of an American family and for an American anti-bullying charity. I’m not sure if I can, but that would be really wonderful.”Follow @DaveHTO on Twitter.Note to readers: This is a corrected story.

EU transport ministers sign deal to save lives on Europe’s Roads1. Cancun hosts United Nations Climate Change ConferenceThe UN Climate Change Conference (COP16) began on Monday in Cancun. The international discussions will continue for two weeks, concluding on Friday 10 December. Following the agreement of the Copenhagen Accord last year, the 2010 negotiations in Mexico are widely expected to focus on making progress in a number of key areas with a view to achieving a fuller international climate change deal in South Africa in 2011. The European Parliament has sent a 15-strong delegation to Cancún, including five EPP members, four from the S&D group, two from ALDE and one Green. They will be there for the two-week duration of the conference. In a resolution adopted last week, MEPs said they wanted “tougher” EU action, including a commitment in Cancún to move from the current 20 per cent emissions reduction target to a 30 per cent target by 2020. Ahead of the conference, Connie Hedegaard, European commissioner for Climate Action, said: ” Cancún can take the world a significant step forward by agreeing on a balanced set of decisions covering many key issues. It is crucial that Cancún delivers this progress, otherwise the UN climate change process risks losing momentum and relevance, and so far no one has been able to point to an alternative forum that can deliver more. Therefore Cancún must deliver progress on substance, and it can, if all Parties show political will.”Source: European CommissionClick here for more information2. European Commission may increase green funding levelsThe EU may increase its financial contribution to eco-innovation projects in future to attract more private investors into these projects, two senior officials from the European Commission told a conference held in Brussels on Tuesday. The commission usually contributes 50% of a project’s financial needs, however Georgios Floros of the commission’s finance department told delegates it may revisit the parity principle, meaning that private investors would have to provide less funding. The idea was backed by Timo Makela of the environment department. The EU executive is considering new financing instruments and delivery mechanisms as part of a review of rules governing the EU’s LIFE+ environmental financing programme. Other sources of green funding include structural funds and the competitiveness and innovation framework programme (CIP). Demand for funds is currently outstripping supply with many innovative SMEs face funding problems, the conference heard. Many are struggling to attract venture capital. Those that do secure such funds fairly easily tend to develop new energy solutions. Banks on the other hand have become risk averse and are often not familiar with eco-innovation projects. Firms increasingly resort to debt financing and small-scale loans of less than €300,000 as alternatives, according to early results from a survey of SMEs and financiers presented by Oxford Research. Other lessons from Tuesday’s conference include the need to cut red tape and tackle skills shortages in engineering and eco-finance expertise, and the importance of a stable policy framework to drive innovation. The discussions will influence the commission’s work a new eco-innovation action plan due at the end of February.Source: European CommissionClick here for more information3. EEA releases fourth Environment State and Outlook reportsThe European Environment Agency (EEA) has released its fourth Environment State and Outlook report “” SOER 2010 “” an assessment of how and why Europe’s environment is changing, and how Europe can do something about it. SOER 2010 concludes that a fully integrated approach to transforming Europe to a resource-efficient green economy can not only result in a healthy environment, but also boost prosperity and social cohesion. The assessment shows that global demands for natural resources to feed, clothe, house and transport people are accelerating. These mounting demands on natural capital are exerting pressure to ecosystems, economies and social cohesion in Europe and elsewhere. However, SOER 2010 confirms that well-designed environmental policies continue to improve Europe’s environment without undermining Europe’s growth potential.Source: EEAClick here for more information4. EU transport ministers sign deal to save lives on Europe’s RoadsA political agreement on road safety and the Cross Border Enforcement Directive has been adopted at the Transport Council by EU transport ministers. The main purpose of the new Directive is to introduce a system of exchanging information to enable the follow up of road safety related traffic offences committed by non-resident drivers. According to the Commission, the adoption of the Directive would introduce equal treatment of foreign and resident drivers and save lives on Europe’s roads. In their conclusions, ministers also endorsed the new target to reduce road traffic deaths by 50% by 2020. Ministers also adopted conclusions in response to the European Commission’s “Road Safety Policy Orientations 2011-2020”. Transport commissioner Siim Kallas said: “Many people seem to think that when they go abroad the rules no longer apply to them. My message is that they do apply and now we are going to apply them.”Source: EUobserverClick here for more informationClick to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) read more

I think that I’ve earned the trust of the club, and they see that they can trust me as well. At Bayern you have to deliver in every game; we have two players at every position and only have top players. If you don’t play one or two games so well, you’re back out of the team pretty fast.”Süle admits the club is always under pressure to win every single game they play and that doesn’t make the job of the manager easy as he has to think every decision through.last_img read more

In Washington, the side streets of Capitol Hill look suitable for running the Iditarod. But the U.S. Senate did meet this morning.Download AudioFor all of 10 minutes. And that included the Pledge of Allegiance and an unhurried opening prayer from the Senate chaplain.Sen. Lisa Murkowski was one of two senators to show up. She said she couldn’t help notice that both of them – herself and Sen. Susan Collins of Maine – are female. So was just about everyone else in the chamber, like the clerks and the parliamentarians, who ensure Senate rules are followed. Even the Senate pages on duty, Murkowski said, were an all-female team.“Perhaps it just speaks to the hardiness of women,” she said, during the opening/closing remarks of the session. You “put your boots on and put your hat on and get out. (You) slog through the mess that is out there.”She said she spent a good portion of the weekend shoveling, and felt stronger for it. She also spent some time posting wintry snapshots on Facebook. One showed her shoveled brick walkway, leading to a snowy Washington street.Murkowski says many people have asked if these are just normal conditions for an Alaskan. Not this year.“In fact,” she said on the Senate floor, “we got as much snowfall here in the D.C. metropolitan area as Anchorage, my hometown, has had accumulated over the course of this season. “Little business was accomplished in the Senate today.

The Ultimate Super Smash Bros Character Guide Duck Hunt

first_img ‘Astral Chain’ and Other Dumb Nintendo SongsThe Ultimate Super Smash Bros. Character Guide: Hero Duck Hunt Takes Aim!Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is huge. Not just in terms of hype and importance and sales potential, but just in terms of sheer stuff. The Nintendo Switch mascot fighter features over a hundred stages, nearly a thousand songs, and too many Pokemon and items and Assist Trophies to think of crammed onto a cartridge you can plan on the go or on a TV. When you have as many big franchises as Nintendo, putting them all in one game will make that game is very big boy indeed.But the biggest, most exciting thing about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is its mind-blowing, heartwarming roster of playable characters. Fighting games pride themselves not just on the strength of their mechanics but the strength of its fighters, especially in a crossover fighters like this. And Super Smash Bros. Ultimate crushes all rivals by including every single playable character from the across the four previous games in the twenty-year-old series. Include the new combatants and so far we have over 70 fighters to wrap our heads around. We’re excited, but we’re also intimidated. So to get ready for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, every day, character by character, we’re creating the ultimate guide to all of its characters. Today’s fighter: Duck Hunt. Stay on targetcenter_img Who Are They?Duck Hunt is this rascal of a chortling pooch, as well as one of the waterfowl he mocks you for not shooting down, from the classic NES game Duck Hunt. However, joining the duo is the disembodied presence of someone off-screen shooting an NES Zapper, the same light gun you would use to shoot ducks in Duck Hunt. Guest stars from other NES Zapper games, from Hogan’s Alley to Wild Gunman, also show up during certain moves.Smash HistoryEvery Smash Bros. game needs a wacky retro newcomer to round out the character roster at the end, like Mr. Game & Watch or R.O.B. The Robot. Duck Hunt served that role as the final newcomer for the base lineup in Smash Wii U/3DS before DLC. Plus who doesn’t appreciate more dogs in a fighting game?What Looks New in Ultimate?Playing as Duck Hunt lets you inflict the same pain on players that you felt yourself when that smug canine first laughed at you back in the 1980s. Duck Hunt’s playstyle revolves around annoying opponents from a distance with all sorts of weird projectiles like clay discs and exploding cans. When you’re in trouble just fly away with the duck on your back. And so far in Ultimate Duck Hunt mostly enjoys buffs, making that annoyance even more effective.Our Hopes?Duck Hunt was such a cool unexpected pick for a NES-era rep we’re glad they’re still here. But even cooler is how the whole “bird riding a furry mammal” combo lets you almost pretend Rare’s Banjo-Kazooie is in the game. We would like to know who is wielding that Zapper though? Is it Sakurai?Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is available now. Read our review of this majestic video game pageant.

Val et al. A checkpoint control orchestrates the replication of the two chromosomes of Vibrio cholerae, Science Advances (2016). DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.1501914AbstractBacteria with multiple chromosomes represent up to 10% of all bacterial species. Unlike eukaryotes, these bacteria use chromosome-specific initiators for their replication. In all cases investigated, the machineries for secondary chromosome replication initiation are of plasmid origin. One of the important differences between plasmids and chromosomes is that the latter replicate during a defined period of the cell cycle, ensuring a single round of replication per cell. Vibrio cholerae carries two circular chromosomes, Chr1 and Chr2, which are replicated in a well-orchestrated manner with the cell cycle and coordinated in such a way that replication termination occurs at the same time. However, the mechanism coordinating this synchrony remains speculative. We investigated this mechanism and revealed that initiation of Chr2 replication is triggered by the replication of a 150-bp locus positioned on Chr1, called crtS. This crtS replication–mediated Chr2 replication initiation mechanism explains how the two chromosomes communicate to coordinate their replication. Our study reveals a new checkpoint control mechanism in bacteria, and highlights possible functional interactions mediated by contacts between two chromosomes, an unprecedented observation in bacteria.center_img V. cholera has been studied extensively for some time as part of an ongoing process to either eliminate it as a threat to people, or to treat infections. As part of that effort, scientists have found that each bacterium has two chromosomes, both of which need to split prior to the cell splitting as part of its life cycle. Prior research has shown that the chromosomes split at the same time, which has suggested a means of communications between the two. In this new effort, the researchers have identified that means of communication and the parts of the chromosomes that are involved in the process.The two chromosomes in each cell are called chr1 and chr2. Chr1 is a lot longer than chr2 and is the chromosome that initiates the entire division process, the team found, when a DnaA molecule binds to a part of the chromosome called ori2 leading to the replication process in chr1, along a circular path. When that path crosses a point the researchers have called crtS, a molecule called RctB is activated which makes its way to chr2 causing it to begins its replication process. The two processes then finish at very nearly the same time—just prior to the complete cell dividing—due to the physical proximity of the two chromosomes and the location of the crtS on chr1.The team then deleted the crtS region in some of the bacteria and found that doing so caused problems with growth and DNA damage. They also allowed one group of the mutant bacteria to multiply over 200 generations to learn more about how the bacteria might compensate for the loss of crtS and discovered that that the mutations led only to mutations in RctB, which the team claims, shows that activation by RctB is a crucial part of the process. (Phys.org)—A team of researchers from France and Denmark, working at Institut Pasteur, in Paris has found the mechanism that is involved that allows dual chromosomes in Vibrio cholerae cells to split at the same time as part of replication. In their paper published in the journal Science Advances, the team describes how they closely studied cell replication in V. cholerae, the bacteria that cause cholera, and then verified their understanding of how chromosome division was occurring by disabling different parts involved in the process.
