Dharamsala Test: Nathan Lyon hurts India after Lokesh Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara fifties

first_imgAustralia off-spinner Nathan Lyon claimed four wickets in the final session to halt India’s progress and help restrict the hosts to 248 for six on the second day of the fourth and final Test on Sunday. (SCORECARD)At 157 for two, and with the dependable Cheteshwar Pujara and stand-in skipper Ajinkya Rahane looking set in the middle, India appeared to have the upper hand before Lyon (4-67) intervened after the tea break.Ajinkya Rahane scratchy, down on confidence: Sourav Ganguly to India TodayIn the first over of the final session, Lyon sent back Pujara for 57 and went on to dismiss Karun Nair, Rahane and Ravichandran Ashwin to deflate the hosts. (Dharamsala Test, Day 2: Key highlights)Ravindra Jadeja clobbered a couple of sixes and was batting on 16 at the close, while Wriddhiman Saha was on 10, having survived two reviews and a dropped catch.India are still 52 runs behind Australia’s first innings total of 300 in the decider of the four-Test series which is level at 1-1. (India vs Australia, 4th Test, Day 2: As it happened)Pat Cummins and new ball colleague Josh Hazlewood were aggressive in the morning session on a pitch which offered wholesome bounce to the pacemen.Hazlewood was rewarded for constantly attacking the line outside the off-stump when Murali Vijay edged him to Matthew Wade to depart for 11. (STATS: Ravindra Jadeja 10th Indian to achieve all-round double of 1000 runs, 100 wickets in Tests)Fellow opener Lokesh Rahul, then on 10, edged Cummins but the ball brushed Matt Renshaw’s finger tips at first slip before racing to the boundary.advertisementRahul was hit on the index finger of his right hand by a Hazlewood delivery but the right-hander recovered to score 60 and give India a strong start. (Cheteshwar Pujara breaks Gautam Gambhir’s eight-year-old record)The 24-year-old left well, drove elegantly and slog-swept Steve O’Keefe for a six en route to his fifth half-century of the series.The second-wicket partnership was worth 87 runs and was looking ominous until Rahul went for a wild hook, with the bouncer hitting the toe end of his bat before finding David Warner at mid off. (Lokesh Rahul seeks second innings redemption in Dharamsala)Rahane found himself in the line of fire and the otherwise dependable batsman made things difficult for himself by trying to pull and hook his way out of trouble.Pujara, who batted for more than 11 hours in the drawn third Test in Ranchi for his 202, played with characteristic calmness at the other end and brought up his fifty with a boundary off Lyon. (Gallery)The off-spinner claimed a major breakthrough when he ended Pujara’s nearly three-and-half hour vigil by getting him caught at short leg.Leading the side in absence of injured regular skipper Virat Kohli, Rahane fell to Lyon for 46 with Australia skipper Steve Smith taking a sharp catch at slip.Ashwin made 30 before he was trapped leg-before by Lyon.last_img read more

James Anderson sixth bowler to join elite 500 club in Test cricket

first_imgEngland fast bowler James Anderson became only the sixth bowler in Test history to clinch 500 wickets on Friday. Anderson picked up the wickets of Kraigg Brathwaite and Kieran Powell as West Indies reached 93/3 in their second innings on Day 2 of the third Test at Lord’s.Anderson is the third fast bowler and the first Englishman in the elite 500-club which includes legends like Sri Lankan Muttiah Muralitharan (800), Australia’s Shane Warne (708), India’s Anil Kumble (619), Glenn McGrath (563) and West Indies’ Courtney Walsh (519).Anderson’s milestone ball, a trademark inswinger that ripped out Brathwaite’s middle stump in the third over of West Indies’ second innings, left an indelible mark on a rain-affected second day that ended under floodlights.”The feeling is a bit of everything — relief, then quite emotional,” Anderson, who took his first test wicket at Lord’s in 2003, said.”It was an amazing ovation. It’s such a special place for me. I can’t quite believe that I’ve got this many wickets or played as much as I have.”Anderson followed up with an even better ball to remove Powell for 45, beating the opener to clip the bail off the off stump.The 35-year-old now has 501 wickets in 129 matches at an average of 27.61 with 23 five-wicket hauls to his name. His bowling partner – Stuart Broad – is in 16th position in the list of highest wicket-takers with 387 scalps to his name in 109 matches at 28.86 with 15 five-wicket hauls.Anderson and Broad also became the third-most successful bowling pair in Test history during the course of this match with 763 wickets. They form the only pair and the second new-ball partnership in the top five who are still active in Test cricket.advertisementAussies Warne and McGrath are the most successful bowling pair with 980 wickets in 197 innings followed by Lankans Muralitharan and Chaminda Vaas with 879 wickets. Walsh and Curtley Ambrose are fourth with 757 wickets in 173 matches while Pakistan’s legends Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis complete the top-five with 555 wickets in just 107 Tests together.Anderson is the leading wicket-taker since the start of this decade with 352 scalps followed by Sri Lanka’s Ragana Herath (319) and teammate Stuart Broad (314).West Indies emerged with a 22-run lead after a rain-affected day which kept conditions ideal for the quick bowlers at Lord’s. The tourists only had seven wickets left in their second innings after reaching 93-3 at stumps.Nine wickets fell on Friday after 14 went down on the first day on Thursday and a result appears inevitable in the series-decider.Either England will seal a second straight series win of the summer to set it up for its next contest, the Ashes in Australia at the end of the year.Or West Indies will win its first series in England in nearly 30 years. The last time the West Indies won in England, the great Viv Richards was in the team. Shai Hope was 35 not out for West Indies at the close on Day 2, and key to its hopes of building a significant enough lead give it a chance of victory. Roston Chase was not out on 3.last_img read more

KEVIN HARTS LOL NETWORK OFFERS CANADIAN COMEDIANS A SHOT AT SUCCESS

first_imgMembers of Moving Mind Studio (Ryan George, Samuel Brisson and Brandon Calder) pose with Hart at the 2016 Just for Laughs festival. (Just For Laughs ComedyPro) Login/Register With: Advertisement Advertisement Twitter LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment “I think there’s a difference between being funny and understanding funny. I think there’s different levels to it and people who understand that can play into so many variations of what that funny is.”2-minute pitch leads to seriesMoving Mind Studio, based in Montreal, was one of the industry newcomers chosen by Hart after a two-minute pitch session during the Just For Laughs festival in 2016.“He gave us some feedback on the spot,” said Ryan George, 28, one of the studio’s members. “The fact that Kevin Hart is willing to attach his name to up-and-coming comedians just gives us the boost that we need to make it in the industry.”“You might be funny, but you need someone to vouch for you.”The company’s digital comedy series, which premieres when the network and app launch in Canada Sept. 6, is called Campus Law.

Morocco’s AU Membership Request to Be Circulated to All AU Members

Casablanca – President of the African Commission Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma has assured Salaheddine Mekouar, Minister of Foreign Affairs, that she would transmit Morocco’s request to reintegrate the African Union to other members of the African organization. “Morocco’s request to join the African Union will be broadcast this Friday November 4th to all current UA member countries,” Dlamini-Zuma told Mezouar, according to a press release sent out by the MAP, the official Moroccan press agency.This announcement comes a day after Dlamini-Zuma had met with Mezouar and three days after King Mohamed VI’s phone conversation with Chad President Idriss Déby, where the monarch had asked President Déby to intervene on his behalf to make the process of reintegrating the African Union faster. It’s been over a month since Morocco’s official request was made. In comparison, South Sudan got its request to join the AU approved after a mere 18 days. Morocco wants to speed up the process in an effort to seal the deal before the next AU summit. So far, several countries have formally expressed their support for Morocco’s effort to rejoin the African Union, including Egypt, Congo, Benin, Rwanda and Tanzania. Morocco left the African Union 32 years ago after the African Union had recognized the self-proclaimed Saharawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR), creating considerable tension between Morocco and the organization. read more

Jail for HBOS scammers who funded luxury holidays sex parties and designer

first_imgMark DobsonCredit:Central  A group of corrupt financiers who carried out a £245 million loan scam and squandered the profits on high-end prostitutes and luxury holidays are facing lengthy jail terms.Consultant David Mills, 59, bribed HBOS manager Lynden Scourfield, 54, with designer watches, sex parties and “boys’ jollies”.The perks were a reward in exchange for him agreeing inappropriate loans to struggling businesses, which allowed Mills and his associates to profit from high consultancy fees. David Mills and his wife Alison arriving at court Many of the businesses went bankrupt as a result and some of the owners lost their homes.Stephen Rowland, of the Crown Prosecution Service fraud division, said: “This had a very real impact on a lot of people, individuals who had worked had to build up companies.”They found themselves losing their companies and in many cases losing their homes as well as suffering enormous emotional strain and trauma.”There’s no way this was a victimless crime – as a result of this crime, real people suffered great hardship.” Michael Bancroft David Mills and his wife Alison arriving at courtCredit:ustavo Valiente/Central Mr Rowland said: “There was a very seedy side to this case and that’s indicative of the kind of mindset and the kind of sleazy elements of these kinds of crimes.”One company, Clode, was operating within its £2.9 million overdraft in 2002 when a meeting was held to discuss its financial position – its total indebtedness to the bank by 2007 was £20.558 million.Mills was found guilty of conspiracy to corrupt, four counts of fraudulent trading and conspiracy to conceal criminal property.

Scourfield’s accountant, Jonathan Cohen, 57, was acquitted of fraudulent trading and conspiracy to conceal criminal property. John Cartwright Mills and his wife Alison Mills, 51; Michael Bancroft, 73; Mark Dobson, 55; and John Cartwright, 71, were convicted of various roles in the fraud between 2003 and 2007 after a four-month trial at Southwark Crown Court.Scourfield, who pleaded guilty last year, looked after corporate customers experiencing financial difficulties at HBOS’s branch in Reading, Berkshire, until 2007 when he resigned.Mills lavished the banker with clothes, jewellery, luxury hotels, business-class flights and expensive meals at an oyster bar and a cheesecake restaurant.His wife also played an active role in the scheme. She invited Dobson and the Scourfields to go on trips to Ascot, while Mills, Bancroft, Scourfield and their wives holidayed together in Barbados to celebrate her 40th birthday. Michael BancroftCredit:GUSTAVO VALIENTE/Central  Mills treated Scourfield to a Cartier watch worth more than £3,000, a Barbados trip and a six-star, all-inclusive cruise on the Mediterranean in the second most expensive accommodation on the ship, the two-bedroom Royal Suite.The pair attended several parties with high-end escorts at a flat in west London, where a number of sex acts were carried out.One woman who worked at Fantasy – a porn magazine company under Scourfield’s portfolio – said she was asked to arrange girls for the “posh t— banker friends”.last_img read more

Catch a ride on the worlds fastest roller coaster

first_imgSo do you like to go fast on roller coasters? If you are a speed roller coaster junkie that likes to feel the wind whip through their hair in twists and hair-pin turns on amazing amusement structures of metal, then look here.Over in Abu Dhabi, they have just opened up a new theme park called Ferrari World. And in addition to having one of the largest roofs ever constructed on the planet, the massive theme park can also boast owning the world’s fastest coaster called Formula Rossa.AdChoices广告While this coaster does not feature any inversions or corkscrews, it is definitely not for the faint of heart. That is because Formula Rossa uses similar technology to that used on aircraft carriers and can propel riders up to almost 150MPH in just 4.9 seconds. That’s fast.Now while I admit that almost all of us won’t be lucky enough to be able to jaunt off to Abu Dhabi just to ride an extreme speed roller coaster, I offer the next best thing. Here is a video of what a rider in the front car experiences on their screaming fast trip.Read more at YouTube, via TechEBloglast_img read more

Fréquences 3G Free Mobile Orange et SFR candidats pour les 2 blocs

first_imgFréquences 3G : Free Mobile, Orange et SFR, candidats pour les 2 blocs restantsFrance – L’Arcep (Autorité de régulation des télécommunications) a annoncé mardi la candidature des opérateurs Free Mobile, Orange et SFR pour obtenir les deux blocs de fréquence mobile 3G toujours disponibles sur le territoire français. L’autorité devrait faire part de sa décision d’ici la fin du mois. Le premier tiers de la dernière licence a déjà été attribué à Free Mobile par l’Arcep en décembre 2009. Bouygues Telecom n’a par contre pas répondu à l’offre car il n’a pas besoin d’autres fréquences “dans la bande de 2,1 gigahertz”.La décision se fera selon deux critères : “Le niveau des engagements qu’ils prendront en vue d’améliorer l’accueil des opérateurs mobiles virtuels (MVNO) et le montant financier qu’ils proposeront” selon l’Arcep, cité par l’AFP.Le prix de réserve de chaque bloc est fixé à 120 millions d’euros.

Fallout 4 Gets Visual Updates on PS4 Pro and PC Next Week

first_imgFallout 4 has been out for a long time now, but Bethesda is continuing to support it with frequent updates. Bethesda has just announced that next week, the post-apocalyptic open-world game will be getting a patch on both the PlayStation 4 Pro and PC that will give it a nice graphical boost.Update 1.9 for PS4 will add support for the PlayStation 4 Pro. Players can expect a resolution of 1440p, enhanced draw distance for trees, grass, objects, and NPCs. Godray effects will also be enhanced — because what good is a game if it doesn’t have bad-ass looking god rays? In order to experience these improvements, PS4 Pro users simply have to download and install the update when it becomes available.Over on the PC side of things, players on Steam can expect the High-Resolution Texture Pack. To fully utilize this update, consumers will have to own a relatively beefy PC. Below are the recommended specs:Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit OS required)Intel Core i7-5820K or betterGTX 1080 8GB/AMD Radeon RX 490 8GB8GB+ RamWhat’s interesting about this is that the Radeon RX 490 isn’t even available to purchase yet. Downloading this patch will add 4K resolution support and also add extra rust and dirt to the world. The world of Fallout is already pretty grimy looking, so this patch will just make it look even nastier (which is a good thing in this case). If your PC can’t handle all of these added textures, you can always revert to the original textures via the game’s launcher menu.Besides this Fallout 4 update, Bethesda is also teasing an update for The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim Special Edition on all platforms (PC, PS4, and Xbox One). This update, along with the Fallout 4 one, is “bringing new features to Mod content” to both games. We’ll get more information about this sometime next week.last_img read more

Ford Secretly Designed a Pickup Truck Emoji

first_imgStay on target There are at least 10 different emojis to represent trains, but none that denote a pickup truck.Ford Motor Company wants to change that.“When customers started demanding a truck emoji, we knew we had to help make it happen,” Joe Hinrichs, president of Ford automotive, said in a statement. “Given the popularity of Ford trucks globally, there’s no one better than Ford to help bring an all-new pickup truck emoji to hard-working texters around the globe.”Last year, the automaker submitted a proposal to the Unicode Consortium—judge, jury, and executioner of new emoji—to add a truck icon to keyboards.The character—a simple blue pickup—has since been short-listed for inclusion in a future version of Unicode.“Our team spent a lot of time digging through message boards, texting influencers, and watching social media feeds to really understand our customers’ needs,” according to Craig Metros, Ford North America design director.“People want a truck emoji that’s fresh, stylish, carries their ideas, and ‘tows’ the line on what a truck means,” he said. “The end result is a modern icon that should give all truck fans a smiley face emoji.”Ford is no stranger to “innovations”: This is the same company, remember, that brought you a noise-cancelling kennel, lane-keeping bed, and self-braking trolley. (All, unfortunately, still in the prototype stage.)Now, following months of top-secret development and testing, the company is making waves again with its new pickup truck emoji.If approved, the design will be customized for all mobile platforms and could start driving onto digital screens as early as next year.In the meantime, iOS and Android users can look forward to a slew of new food, animal, activity, and smiley face characters—including more diverse and inclusive icons—set to hit keyboards this fall.More on Geek.com:Ford Wants This Headless Humanoid to Make Door-to-Door DeliveriesFord Wants to Design Cars With Virtual Reality SketchesFord’s Sweaty Robot Butt Tests Car Seat Durability Study: People Who Use Emojis Have More Sex (Kinda)’Emoji House’ Feud Turns Calif.

Ananya Pandays So Positive initiative creates big impact Instagram announces antibullying features

first_imgAnanya PandayPR HandoutOn Social Media Day when Ananya Panday took up a cause to fight against social media bullying, little did she knew that one of the biggest platforms would consider her initiate as a catalyst in the whole process of starting the battle to negate bullying all across.Proving so, Instagram has introduced a new feature to report the instances of online bullying on their platform.”So Positive” the DSR initiative by Ananya Panday has definitely created the right noise all across where she has received appreciation from all quarters for her stand. It sure is a great note where when one starts something meaningful and we see the biggest of organizations following it and believing in it, the fight is real and more relevant at the same time. Earlier today, Instagram’s official handle announced features for anti-bullying as they shared, “We know bullying is a challenge many face, particularly young people. We are committed to leading the industry in the fight against online bullying, and we are rethinking the whole experience of Instagram to meet that commitment. We can do more to prevent bullying from happening on Instagram, and we can do more to empower the targets of bullying to stand up for themselves. Today we’re announcing one new feature in both areas.”If at all Ananya Panday and her initiative has been the part of the driving force for an organization like Instagram, then this is huge.This is exactly the thought which the actress had when she was planning to take up and support the cause. In the digital environment and it being a public platform, where everyone sees it happening but no one actually takes a step to stop it, Ananya carried the baton for the cause.Elated Ananya Panday took to her social media handle and shared, “This is huge!!  Such a big step… If at all I and @SoPositiveDSR have been a small catalyst in this, I feel meaningful and vindicated… ❤ #SuperGreatful”The initiative taken by Ananya Panday aims at creating and spreading awareness about social media bullying. The initiative’s prime focus is to make people aware of the fact that this issue exists and stays very prevalent in society. Also, the steps that can be taken by the recipients of this destructive criticism in order to deal with this.The platform would create engagement to inform the broader public about the existing actions to emerge out of the issue. Ananya’s initiative is centered around extending support and providing guidance to people to collaborate with helpful entities such as government and lawyers, to name a few.Ever since her Bollywood debut, Ananya has been raking in immense love and appreciation from across quarters. The actress is currently one of the most sought after names for brands where she is already the face of the most iconic brands of all times. More so, she is known for her style and sartorial choices.Meanwhile, on the work front, Ananya, who debuted in Punit Malhotra’s ‘Student Of The Year 2’, will next be seen in the official remake of ‘Pati Patni Aur Woh’ which also stars Kartik Aaryan and Bhumi Pednekar in lead roles.last_img read more

What is Holding Down Housing Inventory

first_img Share MRI is calculated by dividing current number of active listings by the monthly sales rate, thus combining supply and demand into one number. According to Pro Teck, an MRI of approximately six months indicates a balanced market; in December 2016, one-fifth (20.63 percent) of communities in the U.S. had an MRI of under three months—compared to 12.7 percent in December 2015 and 9.17 percent in December 2014. The increase in communities with an MRI under three months from slightly higher than 9 percent up to 20.63 percent in two years indicates a 125 percent increase, indicating a “dramatic shortage of homes for sale in a two-year period,” according to Pro Teck.“As an example, both Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas, have seen over a 40 percent decline in MRI to under 3, with homes in Dallas between 1,500 and 1.999 square feet in size having a current MRI of only 1.08,” O’Grady said.Using a number of leading market indicators, Pro Teck ranked as its top five single-housing markets for December: Colorado Springs, Nashville, Olympia (Washington), Spokane, and Seattle. Dallas and Fort Worth placed sixth and seventh on the list.“The Texas CBSAs (core-based statistical areas) of Dallas and Fort Worth both show up in the Top 10 list this month, boasting 55 and 53 Sold Days on Market—the lowest two in the Top 10,” Pro Teck stated in its report. “Furthermore, all of the CBSAs featured in the Top Ten show a drop in Active Listings—something to be expected this time of year. This number will likely increase as the spring buying season approaches.”On Tuesday, the National Association of Realtors (NAR) reported that inventory dropped by 6.3 percent over-the-year in December down to 1.65 million existing homes for sale (lowest since NAR began tracking the data in 1999) and has declined over-the-year for 19 straight months.”Housing affordability for both buying and renting remains a pressing concern because of another year of insufficient home construction,” NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun said. “Given current population and economic growth trends, housing starts should be in the range of 1.5 million to 1.6 million completions and not stuck at recessionary levels. More needs to be done to address the regulatory and cost burdens preventing builders from ramping up production.”Click here to read Pro Teck’s complete Home Value Forecast for December 2016. According to several recent industry reports, the amount of residential housing available for sale is low. In fact, according to Pro Teck Valuation Services’ Home Value Forecast for December 2016, residential housing supply has declined by 125 percent in two years.“At Home Value Forecast, we’ve written about it often—how the drop in housing starts post-crisis made inventory scarce, which as a result led to low Months of Remaining Inventory (MRI) and fierce competition for homes on the market,” said Tom O’Grady, CEO of Pro Teck Valuation Services.While overall housing starts in 2016 had their best year since 2007 (an annual rate of 1.22 million), the annual rate of single-family housing starts declined by 4 percent in December down to 795,000, according to the latest data from HUD/Census Bureau.“Even with stronger home construction in recent years, more increases in the supply of new homes will be needed to balance out the market, reflected in rapid house price appreciation in recent years,” said David Berson, Chief Economist with Nationwide.
