Sultan Azlan Shah hockey: India crush Malaysia 6-1, to face Australia in final

first_imgIndia stormed into the final of the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup hockey tournament with a 6-1 thrashing of a hapless Malaysia here on Friday.Ramandeep Singh (25th, 39th minutes) struck twice for India while Chandanda Thimmiah (3rd), Harjeet Singh (7th), Danish Mujtaba (27th) and Talwinder Singh (50th) scored once each.Shahril Saabah (46th) got a consolation goal for the hosts in the closing stages.India will now meet reigning world champions Australia in the final on Saturday. With the Australians already booking their place in the summit clash thanks to their all-win record in this tournament, the men from the sub-continent needed a simple win to pip New Zealand to the second spot the final.Malaysia, on the other hand, were in an uneviable situation as they needed to win by an eight-goal margin to book their place in the final.The Indians took the upper hand right at the start when Nikkin Thimmaiah prodded home an accurate pass after some nice work down the left by S.V. Sunil.India doubled the lead a few minutes later from another excellent build-up down the left when Harjit Singh exploited some poor marking by Izad Jamaluddin and Malaysian skipper Razie Rahim to beat Malaysian goalkeeper Hairi Abdul Rahman with a reverse flick.India should have increased their lead just before the end of the first quarter when another piece of poor defending by the hosts allowed Sunil to have a crack at goal. But Hairi pulled off an excellent double save, first blocking out Sunil’s shot before denying Danish Mujtaba off the rebound.advertisementThe Indians continued to pile on the presure in the second quarter as well, but poor finishing let them down. But a fast counter attack towards the end of the second period saw Sunil leave the Malaysian defenders flatfooted with his speed.He was brought down by Rahim on the edge of the Malaysian penalty circle as the umpire awarded India a penalty corner while the Malaysian skipper got a yellow card. The Indians came up with a nice variation after the push was stopped poorly. But Mujtaba managed to get the ball to Uthappa, whose hit was deflected into goal by Ramandeep Singh.The lead was increased further only a couple of minutes later from another penalty corner. Rupinder Pal SIngh’s rising attempt hit the post before Mujtaba pounced on the rebound to fire the ball in past a hapless Hairi.The men in blue conjured up their fifth goal virtually out of nothing midway through the tird quarter when a hit from well outside the penalty area was steered into goal by Ramandeep Singh, who was lurking just behind Hairi.The partisan home crowd finally found their some of their voice when Shahril produced a fine finish to gift a consolation goal early in the last quarter. But Talwinder silenced the packed stadium once again when he found the target off a goalmouth melee.last_img read more

Iran stamp class but Argentina show promise

first_imgDubai, Jun 23 (PTI) Argentina showed promise but they proved no match to World Cup runners-up Iran who cruised to a 54-24 win for their second successive victory in the Kabaddi Masters here today. Playing their only second International tournament, the football-crazy nation got the first point on the board with a successful defence before racing to 3-0 lead. But what transpired next was a heavily tilted affair as the Iranians despite coming with a depleted side stamped their authority to take a 37-7 lead at half-time, inflicting three all-outs. Argentina were done in by their lack of experience and poor team work as Emad Sedaghatnia led the scoring charts for Iran with 11 points. Argentina showed great heart in the second half and even managed to get an all-out in the 37th minute as their was a big ovation for the football-crazy nation. Highlighting the big gulf between the two nations, Argentina coach and president of the national federation Ricardo Acuna said, “Iran have played almost 100 International matches whereas we are playing our first International tournament. We are really proud of the way we played.” He pointed out that they have improved a lot scoring 24 points today, compared to the first time they faced Iran in a World Cup warmup match in Ahmedabad 2016. “We had lost by 12-77 then. So it’s a big improvement,” he said pointing out that the whole nation has a single kabaddi mat for practice at La Plata. “Taekwondo and Judo people have mats but they do not help us. We have players who travel 300 kilometres to practice here. So we train on sand or grass,” he said.advertisement The six-nation kabaddi tournament is supported by Dubai Sports Council and Star India Pvt Ltd. PTI TAP ATATlast_img read more

Klopp refuses to rule out Origi loan move

first_imgTransfers Klopp refuses to rule out Origi loan move Last updated 2 years ago 16:14 8/28/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Divock Origi Liverpool Premier League Getty Images Transfers Liverpool Liverpool v Arsenal Arsenal Premier League With Liverpool’s first-choice forwards seemingly in free-scoring mode, the Belgian could leave before the transfer deadline Jurgen Klopp has admitted that forward Divock Origi could leave the club on loan if more signings arrive at Liverpool before 11pm on Thursday.The Belgian attacker has only managed 10 minutes of Premier League action this season, coming off the bench against Watford, and missed the squad entirely as Liverpool romped to a 4-0 win over Arsenal on Sunday.Reds 10/1 to win a first Premier League crown Article continues below Editors’ Picks Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! ‘I’m getting better’ – Can Man Utd flop Fred save his Old Trafford career? Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah – Klopp’s first-choice front three – all scored in the Reds’ thumping of the Gunners, while Daniel Sturridge came off the bench to add a fourth. And, with the preferred attacking options all in fine form, the chances of reported Tottenham and Marseille target Origi breaking into the starting XI are low.Additionally, with Danny Ings nearing a first-team return after being out with a long-term injury, competition for a spot in matchday squads will be even more fierce.Klopp, however, was unwilling to commit to any definite outgoings, instead insisting that business would depend on whether the club make any more signings.“We will see,” the German boss said on Sunday. “That’s not something to talk about here.“If players come in, I think it makes sense to think about what we’ll do on the other side. I’m not sure – they [the players] are obviously involved in this. We will see. You’ll have to wait.”With football now heading into the international break, Klopp can devote his time to planning around transfers rather than league games, although he is not looking forward to the final stretch of the transfer window.“There are no games now so I hope you [the press] can enjoy the next five or six days with all the rumours and all that stuff.“I’m not looking forward to it but it’s part of the game eh?”Liverpool currently sit in second place in the Premier League, two points behind Manchester United, and next face Manchester City at the Etihad on September 9.

US consumer spending up inflationadjusted 03 per cent

first_imgWASHINGTON – U.S. consumer spending rose in September by a solid, inflation-adjusted 0.3 per cent, led by increased spending on health care services and motor vehicles.The Commerce Department also said Monday that the Federal Reserve’s preferred measure of inflation returned to the central bank’s 2 annual per cent target after having been slightly elevated in prior months. In addition, personal incomes rose 0.2 per cent in September — the smallest gain since June 2017. Roughly half of that increase was wiped out by inflation.Consumer spending accounts for the majority of U.S. economic activity, and it was the key driver of overall growth during the July-September quarter. The economy climbed at an annual rate of 3.5 per cent in that quarter, helped by the strongest jump in consumer spending in about four years, the Commerce Department said Friday.But economic growth slowed from a 4.2 per cent gain in the second quarter as the pace of business investment fell and continued growth may depend even more on consumer spending.Ian Shepherdson, chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics, expects that consumer spending will begin to slow after having gotten a jolt this year from the tax cuts signed into law by President Donald Trump.“Spending recently has been boosted by the tax cuts but the incremental boost to spending power is now over,” Shepherdson said.Consumers did pull back on their spending for food services last month, but they were helped by a 3.5 per cent increase in spending on autos.The Fed’s preferred inflation metric — personal consumption expenditures — found that prices ticked up just 0.1 per cent in September.The personal savings rate slipped to a still-healthy 6.2 per cent in September, but that was the lowest level in 2018.last_img read more

UN agency assists Congolese refugees to return home from Gabon

29 July 2011The United Nations refugee agency is helping hundreds of Congolese to repatriate from Gabon to their former homes over the next week as a deadline looms for them to either apply to remain in Gabon or lose their refugee status. The United Nations refugee agency is helping hundreds of Congolese to repatriate from Gabon to their former homes over the next week as a deadline looms for them to either apply to remain in Gabon or lose their refugee status.About 450 people have signed up in recent days to be repatriated to the Republic of Congo, according to Fatoumata Lejeune-Kaba, a spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).She said a return convoy was leaving Gabon today, and at least three more convoys are slated to depart within the next week. UNHCR has placed staff in two locations in the Republic of Congo to monitor the process and help the returnees reintegrate into their villages of origin.The convoys are taking place as the refugee status of about 9,500 Congolese living in Gabon – part of a larger group of people who fled conflict in the Republic of Congo between 1997 and 2003 – ends on Sunday after the Gabonese Government decided in January that it is now safe for those people to return home.More than 1,000 Congolese have since applied for residence permits to stay in Gabon as regular migrants, and already 217 permits have been granted in the Gabonese capital, Libreville, with others being granted at different locations across the country.Ms. Lejeune-Kaba said UNHCR has been helping the refugees by paying the administrative fee of 150,000 Central African francs (or about $300) needed for a residence permit.She said the agency was pleased that Gabonese authorities had taken steps to ensure that immigration officials understand the new procedures and that there would be no arrests made once the refugee status ends on Sunday.Those steps would allow the Congolese, after Sunday, to continue to apply for residence permits, to seek exemption from the need for such permits, or to repatriate. read more

Action needed to find test treat millions unknowingly infected with viral hepatitis

Both worldwide and in the South-East Asia Region, less than one-in-10 infected people are estimated to know their status, while less than 10 per cent of those who do know are actually receiving treatment, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).“This lack of awareness and treatment leads to progressive liver damage and can cause life-threatening conditions, such as fibrosis and liver cancer, resulting in an estimated 410,000 deaths in the Region every year,” said Poonam Khetrapal Singh, WHO Regional Director for South-East Asia.“It also allows viral hepatitis to spread: Region-wide, an estimated 40 million people live with chronic hepatitis B while an estimated 10 million live with chronic hepatitis C,” she added.Pointing out that “urgent action is needed to find, test and treat the missing millions,” she highlighted the agency’s Regional Action Plan, which aims to expand the number of people aware of their status to 50 per cent, with at least 75 per cent of those diagnosed with the disease, receiving treatment by 2020.Greater awareness among the public and high-risk groups is key to eliminating the viral hepatitis health threat by 2030.She urged health authorities region-wide to send clear messages on the disease’s signs and symptoms, where they can get tested and seek treatment, and how infection can be prevented – such as through hepatitis B vaccinations, practicing safe sex and safe needle usage.The Regional Director underscored the importance of health workers having better access to quality diagnostics and affordable, quality-assured testing kits.For people diagnosed with hepatitis B or C, she said “access to effective and affordable treatment is vital.”Every second person who injects drugs is living with hepatitis C – Yury Fedotov, UNODC Executive Director“While treatments have existed for hepatitis B for some time, Directly-acting antiviral drugs can now cure hepatitis C in up to 95 per cent of cases,” she said, noting that dramatic reduction in cost.World Hepatitis DayWorld Hepatitis Day marked on Saturday, is focussing on raising awareness of the global burden of viral hepatitis as a major health problem in need of an urgent international response.Marking World Hepatitis Day, the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) called on people globally to take action to find the “missing millions,” including intravenous drug users and people in prison.  “Every second person who injects drugs is living with hepatitis C,” said Yury Fedotov, UNODC Executive Director, indicating that women in this category have a 38 per cent higher risk of contracting hepatitis C than men.  “The prevalence of hepatitis B infection among people who inject drugs is 7.5 per cent,” he added.Due to contaminated equipment and unsafe injection of drugs, along with other risk factors such as unsafe tattooing and skin piercing, a 2016 global review indicated that, of the estimated 10.4 million people incarcerated worldwide, 15.1 per cent have hepatitis C and 4.8 per cent have chronic hepatitis B. read more

Ericsson and Ambra deploy LTE 3km down at LaRonde

first_imgEricsson and Ambra Solutions have worked together to deliver Canada’s deepest underground LTE network for the Agnico Eagle mining site, LaRonde in Abitibi, Quebec.Located 3 km below the surface, the LTE network will provide data and voice mobility services across the site and enable several Internet of Things (IoT) use cases to improve safety and mining operations.LTE cellular networks can provide data and voice mobility services over low frequency bands that allow a better propagation than any other available technology, delivering faster, more advanced wireless technology. The network in LaRonde is utilising band 5 at 850 MHz. Ambra is the only Canadian operator deploying private LTE networks in underground mines.The solution is based on the latest Ericsson Radio System portfolio of basebands and radio units, software upgradable to provide Massive IoT capabilities for sensor-based applications and support 5G New Radio (NR) capability.Eric L’Heureux, CEO, Ambra Solutions, says: “The LTE technology is the most cost effective and reliable solution to provide real-time coverage to several kilometres of underground tunnels. A single LTE radio can cover up to 6km of tunnel, whereas it would take over 60 active Wi-Fi access points to cover the same area.”LTE networks open a new suite of capabilities and possibilities to cost effectively enable smart mining-related tasks for open pits or underground mines. Unlike other options, LTE networks allow the use of IoT sensors and devices to monitor, operate, and collect data throughout the mining site, for example related to air quality monitoring. This includes remote control operation of mining machinery, dispatch systems, emergency notification systems, access control systems, automated collection of data, ventilation fan monitoring and gas detection systems.Graham Osborne, Head of Ericsson Canada, says: “Our work with Ambra brings Ericsson technology to a specialized environment in a unique application. Deploying this underground LTE network will provide us with new learning opportunities in a novel application and how they can lead to future technologies and ideas.”Agnico Eagle is a senior Canadian gold mining company with eight mines in Canada, Finland, and Mexico. LaRonde is Agnico Eagle’s flagship mine, located in the Abitibi region of northwestern Quebec. LaRonde has produced more than 5 million ounces of gold since it opened in 1988.Completed in December 2017, the LTE network provides connection across the site. It is similar to the mining site of Boliden in Skellefteå Municipality, Västerbotten County, Sweden, which was also built using Ericsson equipment.last_img read more

Google PopUp Museum Teases New Logo Possible Gaming Hardware

first_imgA pop-up Google exhibit that appeared outside the Game Developers Conference Monday morning is teasing what is likely some sort of gaming hardware that’s “coming soon” along with its new logo.A Google employee confirmed to Variety that the logo — seen in the image above —  is for the new tech set to be announced during the keynote.Google’s unveiling of its take on the future of gaming will kick-off the second day of the annual Game Developers Conference and will include hands-on time with some of the tech unveiled at the event, Variety has also learned.While there’s no word on what that hardware will be, the news does serve as greater confirmation of what many suspect: That Google is preparing to enter the market of PC gaming and video game consoles through its own bit of hardware, most likely paired with streaming technology. In the weeks leading up to tomorrow’s big event, Google has been teasing the “future of gaming” with tweets and short videos. It also has been quietly building up its staff. Most notably, last week former EA and Ubisoft studio lead and game developer Jade Raymond announced she is now a vice president at the company, though didn’t specify specifically what her role would be there. It’s likely we’ll learn more about that Tuesday as well.The company has already been testing its own cloud gaming service  — called Project Stream — which allowed users to play “Assassin’s Creed Odyssey” without needing to install it on their PC. The company as has a patent for a game controller that includes voice support for Google Assistant. Last week, Variety discovered snippets of code already running in Google’s Chromecast that references a gaming service.Chromecast being used as one way to deliver game streaming to televisions is one of the many rumors currently circulating around Google’s Tuesday event.Google’s event will take place in one of the three buildings taken over by the Game Developers Conference, and there’s another outdoor exhibit set up between the buildings by Google. The exhibit is a sort of small video game museum featuring a timeline of major moments in video games including displays of Pong, GameBoy, the PlayStation, Dreamcast, an Atari 2600 and a display case empty except for a card that reads “Coming Soon.” One backdrop reads “Together we’ll build a playground for our imagination.” The other reads “Anything you dream can be built.” In between the two is a massive arch with the Google icon at the top and a sort of flattened out “S” suspended inside. A Google employee confirmed that was the new logo for what was set to be announced this week, but declined to say if it was an “S.” Popular on Variety One that that is clear, though, that this marks a major push by Google at an event that has the attention of game developers from around the world, and that this could be one of the show’s biggest bits of news this year. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.
