Will have to work harder to get into Test team says Navdeep

first_imgNew Delhi: An impressive T20 International debut under his belt, speedster Navdeep Saini hopes to play Test cricket in future but feels he will need extra hard work to break into the “strong” bowling unit of the national team. The 26-year-old Saini, who plays domestic cricket for Delhi, made his T20 International debut against the West Indies in Florida and won the Man of the Match award in his maiden appearance last month. “Our bowling unit in the Test format is very strong. When I was with the team (in West Indies) I realised that I’ll have to work harder to get into the side. Only by doing that a I might get a chance,” Saini told reporters on the sidelines of the launch of All India Public Sector T20 cricket tournament.

With Umesh Yadav and Bhuvneshwar Kumar also competing for spots in the playing XI, breaking in to the Indian Test side seems tough. However, the Indian team management sees Saini as a future prospect in red-ball cricket. To groom him in the longest format of the game, the management used him as a net bowler in the Test series against West Indies and the youngster said he learnt a lot from his experience with the senior team.

At the international level error of margin is very less so I learn how to work around it in practice,” Saini said. Saini was in the reckoning for selection for India’s home Test series against South Africa next month but did not figure in the 15-member squad announced on Thursday. Talking about skipper Virat Kohli, who also captains Saini in the IPL in the Royal Challengers Bangalore team, he said: “Playing under Virat bhai’s captaincy helps me a lot. He always talks about commitment. He says if you have to achieve anything you should be committed to it completely.”last_img read more

Feature From Lesvos to Berlin – a photographers journey reveals the people

Most recently, Mr. Duley’s focus has been on the refugee situation in Europe; in October 2015, he began a project documenting their flight from conflict in the Middle East, starting from Lesbos, Greece, where an unprecedented number of people have arrived via tumultuous, and often deadly rides across the Mediterranean Sea.My main motivation is to go to those places and connect with families, with individuals, with communities and really find a way to tell their stories.The photographer’s goal was to accompany their journey through the Balkans, and witness their arrival at reception centres in Berlin, Germany. But instead of showing more familiar visuals associated with this crisis, such as images of migrants jumping off boats, he wanted to show the details. These smaller and more personal things, he felt, could help bring the women, men, and children refugees closer to the rest of the world. Ahead of World Refugee Day, marked annually on 20 June, the UN News Centre spoke with Mr. Duley on what he aims to capture and about what drives his work. UN News Centre: And the groundbreaking British band Massive Attack is including your pictures in its European tour, how did this collaboration come about? Giles Duley: I have known the guys from Massive Attack for nearly 25 years – I knew them back when I was a music photographer. When I do a project like this, telling the stories of the refugees, it is as important collecting the stories as it is […] making sure people hear [them]. I think it’s really important to engage with audiences that wouldn’t necessarily be looking at newspapers or watching the news on TV; and so I was trying to find different ways of getting these stories out and I thought about the guys from Massive [Attack]. They’ve always been very involved in political issues and wanting to make statements, and so I said to them “is there a way that we could collaborate?” I actually called [the band] when I was on the beaches in Lesvos and I was thinking I needed to get this story out, so I rang them from there and really just described to them what I was witnessing and without any kind of consideration they just said straight away “we would love to show these photographs through our tour.” And so we planned to have these photographs as part of the concert, but they decided to show it at the end of the concert, when the music is finished. I was quite nervous about it, wasn’t sure how people would respond, but it actually was incredibly moving to see everywhere – from London to Berlin, Italy to Spain – when people saw these images at the end of the concert, they stood there and applauded. It was a very, very moving scene as a photographer to see how people responded so positively to these stories. Photographer Giles Duley worked with the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) to document the personal stories of refugees and migrants travelling across Europe. Credit: United NationsUN News Centre: As a photographer you have been travelling to places like Lesbos in Greece, Sudan, Afghanistan, or Jordan where you were recently, what drives you the most in this journey as a photographer? Giles Duley: For me, it is always about humanizing the stories; it is very easy to become overwhelmed by statistics and become detached from these stories. So my main motivation is to go to the places and connect with families, with individuals, with communities and really find a way to tell their stories. I am really interested in the normalcy of life, the little things that go on; like a father brushing his daughter’s hair; a mother preparing food for her child; or a grandparent walking children to school. A lot of photographers travel to places and they want to show the differences between us. I really want to go to places and show the similarities. So you might read about Afghanistan and you think ‘I have nothing to do with the people there.’ Through my photographs, I want to show that actually we are all very similar. UN News Centre: How did your collaboration with the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) on the refugee crisis start? Giles Duley: I am working on a long term project called Legacy of War, which looks at the long term impact of conflicts on communities around the world; I am very interested in what happens to the civilian caught up in conflicts 10, 20, 30, 70 [or] 100 years after war ends. And as part of that project, UNHCR got in contact and asked if I would collaborate on looking at the refugee crisis through the Middle East and in Europe.

(2015) Photo: UNHCR/Giles Duley Train heading through the Balkans. This image represents the sense of longing present in many of the refugees from Syria, Iraq or Afghanistan. (2015) Photo: UNHCR/Giles Duley But when I got injured, within a few days of that injury I remember arriving back in the UK, I was struggling really between life and death and most people thought I wouldn’t make it but my sister saw that I was trying to say something so they took my mask off and the only words that came out were ‘I am still a photographer.’ And even at that stage, when really many people weren’t sure if I would live, I was already thinking of how I could return to photography and how my experience would actually make me a better photographer. One of the hardest things doing the work I do is travel to these places to see people suffering, to take their photograph and then know that you can just get on a plane and leave them, and what I realized was that I would be in a situation where many people I am photographing [I would have] gone through a very similar experience, and I would understand what it was like to be injured in a conflict and to live with those scars. So, from a very early stage, I decided I wouldn’t focus on the things I couldn’t do – of course, as a photographer I wouldn’t be as mobile, I wouldn’t be able to run around, getting into weird angles to take photographs – but I could focus on the advantages. And the main advantage I knew I would have would be my empathy, would be the connection that I would have with people who had gone through similar experiences. So strange as it may sound to a lot of people, although I have many disadvantages following my accident, I actually think I am a better person, and I am most definitely a better photographer. @media only screen and (min-width: 760px), screen9 {#PhotoHolder3 #PhotoCrop { max-height: 770px; /* sets max-height value for all standards-compliant browsers */ width: 134%; margin-left:-161px; margin-top: -540px;}#story-headline{ font-size: 4.8em; line-height: 1.1em; color:#ff6633; position: relative; top: 100px; xtext-align:center; text-shadow: 10px 10px 10px rgba(0,0,0,0.8); width:45%;}}#sidebar {display:none;} div#story-content .span8 {width:100% !important} #fullstory p { font-size: 14px; line-height: 1.8em;}strong { font-size: 1.2em; line-height: 1.7em; xfont-family:Georgia, “Times New Roman”, Times, serif;}li { font-size: 15px; xline-height: 1.7em;}blockquote { font-size: 1.2em; line-height: 1.5em; font-style:italic;}.videoWrapper { position: relative; padding-bottom: 56.25%; /* 16:9 */ padding-top: 1em; height: 0; margin-bottom:1em;}.videoWrapper iframe { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%;} Children from Iraq and Syria at a playground outside a reception centre in Berlin, German, where some of the families were being housed temporarily (2015). Photo: UNHCR/Giles Duley UN News Centre: So you come from a totally different universe, from music and fashion. How did this move [to photographing refugees] happen? Giles Duley: (laughs) Yes, I started as a music and fashion photographer and that was an amazing 10 years of my life, but there was always a sense that I could do something more with my work. I was always frustrated, I felt that I could be telling stories, I could try to do something useful with my photography, so I gave it all up and chose the other path of being an humanitarian documentary photographer and I have to say, it was the best decision I ever made because it was the first time in my life that by telling other people’s stories I felt that I was doing something useful with my love for photography. UN News Centre: Your pictures are often referred to as ‘true.’ Is that what you try to capture – the truth of these countries torn by war? Giles Duley: I think it’s really important, as I said, to show the individual stories; there is no such thing as a single truth in any of these conflicts or in any of these humanitarian disasters. For me, it is just simply about recording what I witness, that’s what I always say: all I can be is a witness to these events and, rather than looking at the huge overall picture, it’s by witnessing how a conflict affects a single family, how a war affects a single individual, and just by telling their truth, hopefully it gives us some insight in understanding what people have to go through. UN News Centre: In an interview published in your book One Second of Light, you talk a little bit about your accident in 2011 and about how journalists started saying that you became a different photographer because that’s a story that is easier to sell. But in a video, you recall the first time you saw your sister after the accident, when you said “I am still a photographer.” Do you feel that you look at things in a different way; do you think that influences your work? Giles Duley: Absolutely, I feel that all my injuries… you know, my approach and my desire was very similar, that was always to try to create empathy with people in circumstances very different from us. I never saw people as victims, but victims of their circumstances, and I always wanted to try and help create connections with those stories so people in the western world would maybe understand and see people as individuals as opposed to just being statistics, so I think my approach was there. read more

Up for review in 4 years Trotman says Govt may want

The Petroleum agreement signed with ExxonMobil and its partners provides a good opportunity for the Government of Guyana to craft future contracts to ensure there are different terms to suit the country’s new realities.Minister of Natural Resources, Raphael TrotmanAccording to a DPI release, this view was recently expressed by Natural Resources Minister, Raphael Trotman, who was speaking on the sidelines of a Stakeholder’s Consultation on the Draft National Oil Spill Contingency Plan hosted at the Civil Defence Commission (CDC).The ExxonMobil Contract is slated for review in the next four years, however, Minister Trotman said he will not speculate but it is expected by that time the sector would have been operationalised, therefore there may be a number of areas the Government would want to re-examine.In the meantime, the Minister said the Government has no intention of interfering with the size of the Stabroek Block, which is 6.6 million acres and spans the two extremes of the country’s borders.The PPP Government in 1999 signed an agreement and the block was strategically sized and this administration, the Natural Resources Minister said, saw the wisdom in this decision.“Despite all that is claimed, the Minister of Natural Resources or whoever the Minister is that has responsibility for the Petroleum sector, does have the authority under law to vary the sizes of blocks,” Minister Trotman clarified.He informed that just a few blocks are remaining, some closer to shore and others offshore, however, the Government is still to decide when and to which companies those will be allocated.In response to a question regarding the lumping of the royalties to be received by Guyana under the contracts with Tullow Oil company and others, Minister Trotman said there is “nothing bizarre” about such an arrangement.He cited the fact that there are varying models of production sharing agreements, “and so there is no norm, things have changed but each country determines what is in its best interest.”In this case, the Natural Resources Minister believes this agreement was in the best interest of Guyana, in order to attract investors.With ExxonMobil to commence production in the next two years, Minister Trotman said how the country utilises the revenue accrued, for the benefit of future generations, is most important.“Schooling, healthcare, roads, bridges, the opening of the country, those are the preeminent concerns of mine,” the minister said.Additionally, he has asked Minister of Business, Dominic Gaskin to take up the responsibility for local content development.He expects that the Draft Local Content Legislation will be finalised by the end of April, 2018.

Germany close to win Group D – Argentina against Russia for eighthfinal

Poland crushed Saudi Arabia 32:13. Poles started the game apparently a bit distracted as already in the 1. minute Karol Bielecki got sent off for 2 minutes for making a wrong change. Both teams were making mistakes but Saudi Arabia definitely did worse and after 10 minutes they were losing 2:5. The gap could have been bigger if it hadn’t been for the Saudi Arabian goalkeeper Mohammed Al-Nassfan who, among others, saved Lijewski’s penalty throw. Poland made use of the Saudi Arabian defence; team mates left the field clear mainly for Kamil Syprzak but other goals were as well scored mostly from the line. Terrible attack and numerous errors of their opponents allowed Poland to gain a really considerable advantage – the halftime result was 17:6.The second half was opened well by the goalkeeper Ali Al-Saffar but Poles finally found their way to the goal. At the other side of the court, Piotr Wyszomirski had even a better time and kept his record clear for 10 minutes. Poland lost a bit focus and had problems with nailing goals for a couple minutes but it turned out to be only temporary. Unfortunately for them, outstandingly playing Syprzak got injured and had to leave the court. However, it didn’t affect the course of the game very much and Poles finished the game leading 32:13. The advantage could have been bigger but, despite the clear victory, Poles achieved quite an outstanding thing – they missed each one of their six penalty throws. The attempts were made by Lijewski, Bielecki, Rojewski, B. Jurecki and twice by Daszek. Some of them were saved by the goalkeeper and some were completely missed. However, not a single one penalty throw was scored during the game as Szmal saved all (two) attempts of Saudi Arabia.

Man who assaulted skier resentenced to 14 years

first_imgCalling the crime “heinous,” a Skamania County judge sentenced Michael D. Collins to 14 years in prison for first-degree robbery for brutally beating and robbing a cross-country skier in 2009.If this sounds like deja vu, it’s because Collins had already been sentenced. The Vancouver man’s original sentence of 25 years in 2010 was tossed out after the Court of Appeals in July ruled prosecutors made a legal error in charging Collins with felony attempted murder.Collins, 36, was in court in Stevenson Thursday for re-sentencing on his other conviction related to the case, robbery.Even though the attempted murder charge was taken off the table, it was the only thing attorneys and the judge talked about.Skamania County Superior Court Judge Brian Altman told Collins that he was literally getting away with attempted murder on a technicality.“At a sentencing hearing, the surrounding circumstances of any crime don’t have to be treated like they never happened,” Altman said. “The savage brutality of this crime is such that Collins is a serious risk to society.”The judge decided to sentence Collins to 171 months, the high end of the sentencing range for robbery based on Collins’ extensive criminal history.The sentence was much more than prosecutors initially suspected Collins could face. Prosecutors recently discovered that Collins had several prior convictions that weren’t taken into account when he was originally sentenced in February 2010.Several new crimes uncovered, including a forgery conviction in New Mexico, were used in the calculation of his new sentencing range, said Skamania County Prosecutor Adam Kick.last_img read more

Oregon bartender gets 17500 tip

first_imgSPRINGFIELD, Ore. – An Oregon bartender just got the tip of a lifetime.One of Aurora Kephart’s regulars at Conway’s Restaurant and Lounge in Springfield often tips her with Keno tickets from the Oregon Lottery. On Tuesday evening, the man who wishes to remain anonymous asked Kephart to choose two.When she checked the numbers, Kephart’s first ticket won $5. The second turned into a $17,500 gratuity.“The look on his face was incredible,” Kephart, 25, told The Register-Guard newspaper. “I automatically handed it back to him; it was his ticket.”But the man wouldn’t take the ticket and made Kephart sign it so she would be the only one able to collect the prize.Kephart said 80 percent of her customers are regulars, and they were excited for her.“The reaction was crazy,” Kephart said. “Everyone was so amped up.”With the bar busy, Kephart went right back to work, her brain “scrambled” by the big tip. The next day, she claimed her prize at the Oregon Lottery office in Salem.Kephart said she gave the man a percentage of her winnings. “I just couldn’t not give him some of it,” she said.Kephart said she plans to buy a new couch with her share and save the rest. Those modest plans earned her teasing from the bar’s regulars, but she had been looking for a couch before going to work Tuesday and was scared off by the prices.“I never realized how expensive couches were,” she said. “Instead of waiting till Christmas or later, now I can buy something I really need.”last_img read more

13yearold allegedly abducted killed by friend and accomplice

first_imgA 13-year-old boy was allegedly abducted and murdered by a 17-year-old juvenile, who was a friend of the victim, and a 28-year-old man in north-east Delhi’s Rohtas Nagar area, police said on Friday.The accused duo, comprising the teenager and one Mohit Chaudhary, who allegedly demanded a ransom amount of Rs 30 lakh from the boy’s family for his safe release, were apprehended by the police. According to the police, at around 10 pm on February 19 that the boy’s father, Chandrashekhar, reported to the police that his son, Jatin, went missing. Around 2 am, they received an SMS from an unknown number in which the alleged abductors demanded a ransom amount of Rs 30 lakh for the boy’s safe release. Also Read – Company director arrested for swindling Rs 345 croreThe police questioned Jatin’s classmates in Dev Public School located in East Rohtak Nagar and some of them said that Jatin was last seen near Shahdara with his teenager friend.Meanwhile, it also emerged that the concerned SIM card, through which the SMS was sent, was issued on a fake identity proof by a vendor at Shahdara. When the police started tracking the whereabouts of the SIM card, they ran into the juvenile and his 28-year-old accomplice.During interrogation, they told the police that they allegedly strangled Jatin to death near the secluded Rathi Mill area on February 19, when they realised that the abduction bid would fail. By the time they sent the SMS to Jatin’s father, who also was a friend of the juvenile’s father, Jatin was already dead, said a police official.The police had registered a case under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) section 363 (kidnapping) following the child’s kidnapping on Thursday.

Former ministers lash out at Paphos mayor over property claims

first_imgFormer interior minister Socratis Hasikos accused the mayor of Paphos on Saturday of being a publicity seeker with nothing new to say after he named individuals and businesses who have allegedly been misusing Turkish Cypriot properties for decades.His scathing comments were echoed by another former interior minister, Eleni Mavrou, though in a much milder fashion.Both said that investigations into cases of mismanagement were already well underway with action taken to evict some property holders, and that Phedonas Phedonos’ general allegations had already been included in several annual reports by the auditor-general.“I wonder if there is anything new among what the Paphos mayor is reporting,” Hasikos said.On Friday Phedonos had told Paphos police of around 30 cases of mismanagement of Turkish Cypriot property. Speaking to reporters before he handed over the information, Phedonos said he hoped that his testimony would help start a general effort to “crush this huge scandal that has grown around the Turkish Cypriot property since 1974 up to now”.On Wednesday, Phedonos named some of the people he alleged were involved, including prominent businessman Nicos Shacolas, former defence minister Elias Eliades, and Dionisis Malas, father of Akel’s presidential candidate Stavros Malas. All have denied wrongdoing while Shacolas’ company has threatened to sue Phedonos.“Phedonas needs to understand that he is not the guardian of Turkish Cypriot property and that he cannot resort to populism and deconstruct state institutions,” Hasikos said.What Phedonos reported, Hasikos said, also all concern administrative contracts and he questioned whether the police have the jurisdiction to investigate.Hasikos said that the majority of cases concern the period prior to 1991, after which the issue was regulated by law.Until 1991, he conceded, Turkish Cypriot property was given to non-beneficiaries to serve political party interests.Hasikos said that as the Guardian of Turkish Cypriot property, the interior ministry had already taken action to evict those holding such property illegally.Pointing to his own stint as interior minister between 2013 and earlier this year, he highlighted the corruption cases concerning Turkish Cypriot property that he had dealt with, adding that for the first time that people were sent to prison “from all parties”.Hasikos was referring to the land scam involving the illegal purchase by the telecommunications authority’s (CyTA) pension fund of Turkish Cypriot property in Dromolaxia, Larnaca, and the construction of an office-space complex at an inflated price. High-ranking Akel member Venizelos Zanettos, ex-CyTA boss Stathis Kittis and former EAC boss Charalambos Tsouris were among those found guilty.He added that although many non-refugees hold Turkish Cypriot property, they got it legally through contracts they signed with the government.Hasikos said that community councils and municipalities cannot claim Turkish Cypriot land if a refugee is using it legally and insinuated that this was the case with one of the properties in Paphos.Eleni Mavrou, who was interior minister for part of the Demetris Christofias administration, said that mismanagement of Turkish Cypriot land was an open secret which had been mentioned in several reports of the auditor-general. The interior ministry had also looked into hundreds of cases which resulted in Turkish Cypriot property being taken back from users.“This is not new, what’s lacking is regular and strict checks,” Mavrou told the Sunday Mail.It is not enough to each time go after those who are being reported of abusing the system, she said.“Since the government has identified this problem, it needs to take those measures to prevent it from happening,” Mavrou said.She added that the existing law is comprehensive and specific and up-to-date as it was last amended in 2012.“Our attention should be turned to check procedures and transparency,” she said.She added that thousands of plots and buildings owned by Turkish Cypriots were given to refugees and others to manage, and that the cases of misuse concern only a fraction but they tended to be land and establishments of great value.Transparency is the key, she said. “But for the public to be able to check who rented what, there should be public records for every contract.”Mavrou conceded that there had been interventions when big interests were at stake. The House refugee committee heard recently that one third of Turkish Cypriot establishments used for professional purposes in Paphos, were given to non-refugees. “That’s a large number,” she said.Refugees are given priority, she said, while non-refugees are usually only granted such property based on socio-economic criteria.Daily Phileleftheros reported on Saturday that Turkish Cypriot property had been, in the past, rented out to embassies, petrol companies and other businesses for as little as CY£2 per year.Deputy police spokesman Stelios Stylianou said that out of the 30 cases Phedonos had reported 16 of them concern districts other than Paphos, mainly Larnaca.Speaking on Saturday to state broadcaster CyBC, Stylianou said that it was still too soon to estimate when the investigation would be completed as it would take a lot of time to go through each case. If necessary, he said, the case file would be sent to the legal services for advice.Following the invasion, vacant Turkish Cypriot property was given by the state at low rents, mainly to Greek Cypriot refugees.In his testimony, Phedonos reported that people who were not eligible managed to get their hands on some of these properties and sublet them and get rich, while some refugees did not get anything.Paphos police have set up a task force to investigate the allegations, while auditor-general Odysseas Michaelides said on Friday he would launch an in-depth investigation into the Turkish Cypriot property mismanagement, on the basis of available information and what has been revealed recently. You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
