Fanfare over cricketers influencing selection decisions, a concern: Sanjay Manjrekar

first_imgMS Dhoni’s career so far has been nothing short of a Bollywood blockbuster. The only captain to win the World T20, the World Cup, the Champions Trophy and the Test Championship Mace, is no longer the man he was only a few years back. The young boy with long locks from Ranchi is now a man with greying stubble, as the bildungsroman has slowly transformed into a medieval romance.  “It’s in our DNA in India, isn’t it? We do not just make icons of our sporting heroes, we also give them God-like status. But since we already have one God in cricket, Dhoni, I guess, will have to be something else,” wrote former India and an contemporary commentary of the gentleman’s game, Sanjay Manjrekar, is his recent column for espncricinfo.”Dhoni is a public performer, and just his public performance, not his personal life, is under scrutiny here. Once you are a public performer, it does not matter what the critic’s standing in society or cricket is. That’s irrelevant,” he added.Dhoni’s last knock in a blue shirt came against New Zealand where he scored 49 off 37 balls with a strike-rate of 132. It may not have been the flashiest of batting displays, but the former captain’s inability to rotate strike much like the past one year, has courted criticism from many.Former captains have come to attack Dhoni for his failures of late and Manjrekar is the not the first. In his column he gave examples of past instances when the country’s common man, wearing the critic’s hat, have called for the aging stars’ heads. Kapil Dev and Sachin Tendulkar being the yardsticks for his comparison.advertisement”I still feel it’s time for MS Dhoni to give youngsters a chance in T20 format. It will be an opportunity for a youngster to blossom and get confidence playing international cricket. He is definitely an integral part of ODI cricket,” Laxman had said analysing Dhoni’s condition in a post match cricket show.Another legend of the game, Sourav Ganguly, in an interview with India Today, had this to say about Dhoni’s T20 credentials: “I am not too sure if Dhoni is a good T20 player. He is a champion ODI player but when it comes to T20 cricket, in 10 years, he has got one fifty and that’s not the best record. So that’s an area which needs to be looked at.”The question of selection has also been a hot topic for much discussion and debate. Manjrekar weighs-in on the issue saying, “Reputation or status of a player should never be a factor in selection. The criteria must be the same for each player. Of course, past performance and quality are factors because great players can do special things, but while picking players, I would consider, apart from skills and fitness, how good they are as team players, their potential to contribute consistently, and what they can grow into.”Virat Kohli, Dhoni’s successor and now his captain, came to his defence after the New Zealand series. “First, I don’t understand why are people only pointing him out, I’m not able to understand this. If I fail as a batsman three times, no one is going to point fingers at me because I am not over 35. The guy is fit, he is passing all the fitness tests. He is contributing to the team in every tactical way on the field. With the bat, if you look at the series against Australia and Sri Lanka, he did really well. In this series, he has not got much time to bat.”India’s coach, Ravi Shashtri has also thrown his weight behind Dhoni, saying, “Looks like there are a lot of jealous people around, who just want Dhoni to have a couple of bad days…. There are a few people who are waiting to see the end of MS Dhoni. But great players like him decide their own future.””We will be unfair to a great if we dropped him because he is not living up to our great expectations,” Manjrekar wrote is his column, but also questioned the notion of not criticising someone like Dhoni.  “But somehow in India, once a player achieves the status of an icon, only good things are allowed to be said about him, and people are crucified if what they say comes across as anything less than a compliment,” he wrote.last_img read more

Indian batsmen will struggle against James Anderson: Graeme Swann

first_imgFormer England spinner Graeme Swann believes Indian batsmen will have a tough time in swinging English conditions during the five-match Test series in July-August.Swann said James Anderson remains England’s best bet at home and Indian batsmen will find it hard to cope against his swing bowling.Swann said if Anderson continues to do what he does best during the entire series, he can swing the series decisively in favour of the home side.”I think it depends a lot on Jimmy Anderson and how he bowls with the swinging Dukes ball. If he bowls as well as we know he can, I don’t think Indian batsmen are going to be able to cope well with swing bowling,” Graeme told India Today.The 35-year-old Anderson, who has 531 wickets to his name, would aim for India captain Virat Kohli’s prized wicket. The right-arm pacer troubled Kohli a lot during India’s previous tour of England in 2014, picking 25 wickets in the series.In 2014, Kohli had endured a torrid time aggregating 134 runs from 10 innings. He scored 1, 8, 25, 0, 39, 28, 0, 7, 6 and 20 in the five Tests and finished the series with an average of 13.50.However, he has been in sensational form since. Kohli returned to India and worked on his technique with Sachin Tendulkar. Later that year, he toured Australia and slammed four hundreds in four Tests.The Indian captain has since also scored six double hundreds including four in successive series. Against England in the five-Test series at home, Kohli scored 655 runs and led India to a 4-0 triumph.advertisementKohli was also in top form in South Africa, smashing 871 runs across formats. He was the leading run-scorer in the Test and ODI series.The 29-year-old now wants to conquer England and the stint with Surrey will be crucial.Kohli will be plying his trade for Surrey in his maiden county stint to prepare for India’s Test series in England in June.”Virat Kohli, let’s face it, is the best player in the world to watch. I used to enjoy playing against him, not for too long; when against him. He is gorgeous to watch, he looks the part. He is beautiful to the eye,” he said.Swann also welcomed Kohli’s move to play county cricket to acclimatise to English conditions before the series.”It’s a good decision from him. And he will be good for English crowds. County cricket does not gets big crowds in. This should push people to watch arguably the best batsmen in the world currently,” he said.”And if it does give him some form and confidence going into the series, I think we are livening it up because otherwise it could be a steamrolling England 4-0 win,” Swann added.One of England’s leading spinners of his time, Swann, however, said he is worried with the lack of spin resources in the England team.”One big worry for England is a spinner. When England has won in the past, they had a good spinner to support the seam bowlers. I am not sure they have an in-form and confident spinner this time,” he observed.last_img read more

The Latest CEO fraud charge hammers Teslas stock

first_imgDETROIT – The Latest on efforts by federal regulators to remove Elon Musk from his position as CEO and chairman of Tesla (all times local):5 p.m.Tesla’s stock plunged nearly 14 per cent Friday, wiping out $7 billion in shareholder wealth after government regulators accused Elon Musk of committing securities fraud and sought to oust him as CEO of the electric car maker.It marked the largest one-day decline in Tesla’s shares in nearly five years.The steep decline left Tesla’s stock at $264.77, a 30 per cent drop from where it stood Aug. 7 after Musk tweeted that he had secured funding to finance a buyout at $420.The Securities and Exchange Commission filed a civil complaint late Thursday alleging that Musk made the bold statement even though he hadn’t lined up the estimated $25 billion to $50 billion needed to take Tesla private.The SEC contends Musk should be removed as CEO for his alleged misconduct.___9:45 a.m.According to a person knowledgeable about talks between Tesla and federal securities regulators, CEO Elon Musk rejected a settlement that would have allowed him to pay a small fine and stay on as CEO of the electric car company.The person, who asked not to be identified because the negotiations were private, said Friday that Musk rejected the offer because he didn’t want a blemish on his record.On Thursday the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filed a civil complaint in U.S. District Court in Manhattan seeking to oust Musk and alleging that he committed securities fraud with false statements about plans to take the company private.To stay on as CEO, the person said that Musk would have had to agree to conditions including restrictions on when he could release information publicly.The SEC said in its complaint that Musk falsely claimed in an Aug. 7 tweet that funding had been secured for Tesla Inc. to go private at $420 per share, a substantial premium over the stock price at the time.The SEC now wants a “bar prohibiting Musk from serving as an officer or director of a public company.” It also is asking for an order enjoining Musk from making false and misleading statements along with repayment of any gains as well as civil penalties.Shares tumbled 12 per cent at the opening bell Friday.____9 a.m.The bombshell announcement that federal regulators are seeking to oust Elon Musk as CEO and chairman at Tesla is pushing shares even lower before the opening bell.Tesla and Musk are perceived as inseparable by many investors, with some industry analysts putting his value baked into each Tesla share in excess of $100. That’s a third or more of the value of each share. After a 13 per cent slump before the market opened Friday, Tesla’s stock plunged 13 per cent to $307.52.last_img read more

Ontario launches public consultations on provincial retirement pension plan

Ontario launches public consultations on provincial retirement pension plan TORONTO – Ontario’s Liberal government is looking for public feedback on its plan to create a provincial pension plan with mandatory contributions from workers and employers.The government released a consultation paper on “key design questions” such as a minimum income threshold — the $3,500 used by the Canada Pension Plan is suggested — and on exactly who would be eligible for the provincial plan.Associate Finance Minister Mitzie Hunter says about two-thirds of Ontario workers do not have a workplace pension, so virtually all of them would be required to join the Ontario Retirement Pension Plan.The government will phase-in mandatory 1.9 per cent contributions from employers and workers over two years, starting with larger companies in 2017 before moving on to smaller operations like convenience stores and dry cleaners.Business groups like the Ontario Chamber of Commerce say requiring workers to pay up to $1,643 a year for a provincial pension — and forcing their employers to match those contributions — will drive up costs and result in fewer jobs.Hunter countered by saying the introduction of the ORPP on Jan. 1 2017 coincides with the expected reduction in Employment Insurance premiums by the federal government.Ontario wants to mirror the CPP as much as possible, and still would prefer to enhance the CPP instead of creating its own provincial plan, said Hunter.“There was consensus among the provinces to expand the CPP, but the federal government unilaterally shut down those conversations,” she said.Hunter could not say when the ORPP would start paying benefits to retirees.“We estimate that about three million people will be contributing to the plan, about $3.5 billion in funds that will be invested each year,” she said. “In terms of when the benefits will be made available, those details have not been decided.”Experts recommend people aim to replace 50 to 70 per cent of their pre-retirement income to maintain a similar standard of living once they stop working, but Hunter doubts very many people have managed to put aside enough savings.“We know that there is a retirement savings gap, and we know there is low pension coverage at work,” she said. “We want to ensure that Ontarians, when they retire that they have some security that they can rely on.”The province also wants to hear from the self-employed, who are ineligible for the ORPP because of the federal Income Tax Act, about ways to improve their retirement savings.“What we’ve committed to is to consult with the self-employed, exploring ways of supporting them in retirement,” said Hunter. “We introduced just last week pooled retirement pension plan, which is another option for the self-employed.The province said ORPP contributions would be ‘locked-in’ just like CPP contributions, prohibiting people from cashing them out before retirement. by The Canadian Press Posted Dec 17, 2014 10:04 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Bankruptcies continue to spike in Alberta

There’s still a long road ahead for Alberta’s economy.Consumer insolvencies have shot up by 46 per cent in the past year in Alberta, according to a report by the Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy Canada.That’s the second biggest jump in the country after Saskatchewan.Insolvency Trustee Angela Lock with Grant Thornton says we can expect that number to slump even more in the coming months.“I think that it may just continue to increase, unfortunately, for the next six months or so,” she said.She says the holiday season will make things worse before they get better.“Advice that I can give to people is planning. Also – talking to your family, talking to your kids about what the current financial situation is. You know, there might not be as many presents underneath the tree as there have been in the past. I think having that communication is very key,” Lock said.“Usually, leading up to Christmas, people aren’t really thinking about coming into our office, but after Christmas we’re typically a lot busier, once credit card statements come in.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Kaitlin Lee Posted Oct 31, 2016 12:10 pm MDT Stock photo Bankruptcies continue to spike in Alberta Alberta|economy|Grant Thornton read more

UN chief calls for solidarity compassion and action on World Refugee Day

– / 8 Mr. Guterres also expressed deep concern over the rise in the number of refugees who are not receiving the protection they are entitled to. He added that communities, or countries, that provide a safe haven for those fleeing war or persecution should be supported.Later this year, a Global Compact on Refugees will be presented to the international community meeting at UN Headquarters in New York.Mr. Guterres said it offers “a way forward” while also recognizing the contributions that refugees make to the societies hosting them.“As long as there are wars and persecution, there will be refugees. On World Refugee Day, I ask you to remember them,” his message continued.“Their story is one of resilience, perseverance and courage.  Ours must be of solidarity, compassion and action.” The appeal by Secretary-General António Guterres comes in a video message for World Refugee Day, observed this Wednesday, 20 June.In it, he reported that a person was displaced every two seconds during 2017. “On World Refugee Day, we must all think about what more we can we do to help.”  The answer, he added, “begins with unity and solidarity.” read more

Siemens Mining Technologies bundles its portfolio New market profile in solutions and

first_imgBy organising itself into four operational segments, Siemens Mining Technologies is bundling its portfolio. “By concentrating on our solutions and services business, we can integrate process expertise and electrical engineering competence to provide extra value to our customers and improve our market opportunities”, says Dietmar Jürges, who is responsible for worldwide mining business at Siemens VAI. With effect from October 1, worldwide operational business will be controlled by four segments, namely Mobile Mining Solutions, Drive Solutions, Process Solutions and Services. “The aim”, according to Jürges, “is to substantially boost growth and to double our share in this €5 billion market to over 10%.” With this new market profile, Siemens Mining Technologies wants to drive ahead its development from a mainly electrical systems integrator to a solutions provider for primary and secondary processes in open-pit mining. “This is the only way we can satisfy the rising need for energy-efficient products and environmentally compatible solutions”, stresses Jürges. The growing demand for the provision of various services over the entire life-cycle of installations, he continues, is not only an opportunity for growth but is increasingly becoming the main factor that distinguishes Siemens Mining Technologies from its competitors. The global presence of Siemens, he says, guarantees the availability of support close to the customer 24 hours a day. “The high demand for raw materials is stimulating production”, says Jürges, “however, rising energy costs and environmental protection requirements are simultaneously necessitating new solutions that, above all, require a holistic consideration of the entire production process”. At the same time, the rising demand for migration and modernization solutions and the trend towards outsourced maintenance are opening new opportunities for local business.“Mobile Mining Solutions”, which has its headquarters in Alpharetta, USA, will be responsible for worldwide business in electric drives and automation solutions for trucks, shovels and draglines. Drive products for mine winders and mill drives will be brought together in the “Drive Solutions” segment. Various solutions for the production process in open-cast mining will be offered by the “Process Solutions” segment, which will concentrate on conveyor belt systems for transporting ore and coal, on material handling equipment and on pelleting and flotation systems for ore processing. Another focal point will be solutions for water and wastewater purification as well as sludge treatment – a topic that is becoming an increasingly important cost factor in view of globally rising water consumption. The “Services” segment will be for all technological solutions and will offer services for maintenance, spare-parts management as well as modernisation and migration solutions thus enhancing the competitiveness, productivity and availability of open-cast mining installations over their entire life cycle. read more

La puce deau a un génome plus complexe que le nôtre

first_imgLa puce d’eau a un génome plus complexe que le nôtreLa daphnie rouge, une puce d’eau faisant partie des crustacés possèderait le plus grand nombre de gènes jamais répertorié auparavant. La puce d’eau, ou daphnie rouge (Daphnia pulex), a dévoilé 31.000 gènes alors que l’homme en compte 23.000 seulement ! Ce sont des scientifiques qui ont fait cette découverte publiée dans la revue Science. La daphnie rouge est le premier crustacé à voir son génome séquencé. Elle devient ainsi l’animal à partager le plus grand nombre de gènes communs avec l’homme.Ce nombre élevé de gènes provient du fait que ceux de la daphnie rouge produisent des copies en grande quantité.  Le responsable de l’étude, le biologiste américain Don Gilbert, indique : “Nous estimons que le rythme de reproduction de copies de gènes est trois fois plus grand chez la daphnie rouge que chez les autres invertébrés et 30% supérieur à celui de l’homme”, rapporte Futura-Sciences.Il indique également que “plus d’un tiers des gènes de la daphnie rouge n’ont jusqu’ici été identifiés dans aucun autre organisme, en d’autres termes ils sont totalement nouveaux pour la science”. Pourtant les daphnies rouges sont des crustacés courants, présents dans les étangs et les lacs. Ils sont même souvent utilisés par l’homme qui peut, du fait de la sensibilité de la puce aux divers polluants, surveiller l’état des écosystèmes aquatiques.À lire aussiLa Méditerranée est officiellement la mer la plus polluée par le plastiqueCe point et très intéressant pour les chercheurs qui espèrent parvenir à une meilleure gestion de l’eau et à terme, parvenir à mieux protéger les hommes contre les divers polluants environnementaux. “Les recherches génomiques sur les réactions des animaux au stress ont des applications importantes pour évaluer les risques environnementaux pour l’homme”, explique James Klaunig, professeur de sciences environnementales, cité par la même source.En fait, connaître les génomes de la daphnie rouge permettra de découvrir quelles modifications les polluants induisent sur les cellules et les molécules.

Gabe Newell confirms Valve will release a Steam games console

first_imgIt was in March that we first started talking about the potential for a Valve games console called the Steam Box. Back then the hardware was expected to be based on an Alienware X51, but several months on and nothing appeared. Instead, Valve hired a hardware person, distracted us with focusing on Steam for Linux, and introduced a Big Picture mode for playing PC games on your TV with a controller.Talk of a Steam Box is back though, and with good reason. Gabe Newell has confirmed during the 2012 Video Game Awards that Valve will be releasing its own hardware to run Steam as a competitor to existing games consoles.It looks as though Steam for Linux and Big Picture mode were both projects to open up Steam to a wider audience, but also to help make a Steam Box happen. Newell stated that Valve’s hardware will be a “very controlled environment,” which I take to mean it will be a PC running Linux, Steam’s Big Picture mode, and nothing else. Control will be through a dedicated game controller rather than a keyboard and mouse.But Newell also made it clear a Valve Steam Box isn’t going to be your only means of playing PC games on your TV using the service. You can build your own Steam Box, other vendors could also develop and offer their own versions of the hardware, and Steam on PC/Mac isn’t going away. Instead, Newell argues Steam across multiple devices just makes it more attractive to developers because it is unified and works everywhere, unlike the different games consoles where each has its own rules and guidelines to follow.As is typical of Valve, there’s no release date for an official Steam Box. It will be announced when it’s ready. However, Valve is also working on a new game engine, and I’d bet money any Steam Box launch would come after that engine is available and potentially alongside the launch of a high-profile game like Half Life 3. Could you think of a better title to launch a Steam Box with?More at Kotakulast_img read more
