Trevor Bayliss will have to accept it: Jason Holder on Sheldon Cottrell’s salute celebration

It’s all entertainment. If it gets a bit of a laugh or a smile on people’s faces so be it,” he added.West Indies captain Jason Holder was asked on Thursday whether Cottrell had “a nice, special salute” lined up for Bayliss, and he smiled.”I don’t think it will change, that’s just Sheldon. I guess Trevor will just have learn to accept it,” he replied.Watching the West Indies batsmen smashing Archer’s deliveries to the boundary might rank even higher on the satisfaction scale but Holder was keen to put the match into perspective.advertisement”It’s something that has been talked up in the press, in the media, and we are looking forward to the challenge against England,” he said.”I have seen Jofra over the years. He is obviously a Barbadian. He’s grown up in Barbados playing cricket so what I’m seeing of Jofra doesn’t surprise me. He is one of those guys who has always had ability and talent,” added the captain.”It is just unfortunate how things went in terms of his decision-making but he is a good talent.”The match, he emphasised, was against England, the pre-tournament favourites, and not just about one man.Holder said the final team selection would be made on Friday, with all-rounder Andre Russell recovering well from a knee injury after being left out of the rain-abandoned match with South Africa.”He is just one of those guys where we give him as much time as he possibly needs, so it all boils down to how he wakes up tomorrow morning and feels,” said the captain.Also Read | Jofra Archer will take West Indies clash in his stride, says Eoin MorganAlso Read | World Cup 2019: England aim to continue dominance against West IndiesFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

UTT3 Chennai Lions roar past Puneri Paltan

first_imgNew Delhi: Chennai Lions bounced back from their opening tie debacle to roar to their first win in Ultimate Table Tennis season three, overpowering Puneri Paltan 10-5 at the Thyagaraj Stadium here on Sunday. Germany’s Petrissa Solja and birthday boy Tiago Apolonia of Portugal were the cynosure of the Lions’ comprehensive win, setting up the momentum early on. Solja blanked Commonwealth Championship gold medal winner Ayhika Mukherjee 3-0 in the opening women’s singles, while Apolonia staved off a fighting Harmeet Desai of Puneri Paltan 2-1 to hand Lions the firm advantage (5-1) just two matches into the tie. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over ChandigarhSharath Kamal and Petrissa then eased past Desai and Sabine Winter 2-1 in the mixed doubles to seal the match in the Lions’ favour. Petrissa helped the Lions begin on a strong note, with a 3-0 win over Ayhika in an intensely fought women’s singles opening encounter. Although ranked 108 places below world number 26 Solja, Ayhika showed great composure and fighting spirit as she made her opponent sweat in the first game. Fresh from her CWG TT gold medal triumph on Odisha, Ayhika appeared confident and fired up. She raced to a 5-2 lead before Rio Olympic silver medallist Petrissa relied on her experience to pull level at 5-5. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced laterFrom there on, Petrissa showcased some deft touches and superb net play to take a handy 10-8 lead. Ayhika fought back hard and saved two game points before Petrissa finally pocketed the opening game on the golden point (11-10). The second game began in the same vein, with Petrissa being tested by her younger opponent, who was cheered wildly by the home crowd. Ayhika led 2-0 but thereafter lost her way. Petrissa opened up a huge lead at 10-5 and sealed the game at 11-6. The final game (11-8) too went Petrissa’s way, who survived some anxious moments to stave off a dangerous-looking Ayhika to hand the Lions the early advantage. The Lions consolidated on their lead when Apolonia came from a game down to defeat Desai 2-1 in the opening men’s singles match. Stretched by Desai in the opening game which he lost 8-11, thrice Olympian Apolonia showed exemplary agility and game reading to make a brilliant comeback. In the second game, Apolonia and Desai breathed down each other’s necks and were well poised at 5-5 and then at 9-9. Once again experience came to the fore, with Apolonia winning the game on golden point (11-10) to take it to the decider. Apolonia was in his element in the final game, often playing away from the table and taking advantage of his height to quell Desai’s challenge (11-7). The mixed doubles too went Lions’ way. Sharath-Petrissa had an easy run in the opening game, winning it 11-7 and kept up the good work throughout. They pocketed the following games 11-7 and 11-6 to hand the Lions the win as they now led 8-1 overall. Later, in the second men’s singles, Puneri Paltan’s Chuang Chih-Yuan beat Sharath Kamal 2-1 (11-5, 11-10, 3-11) in what was another gripping contest. Despite losing the first two games, Sharath showcased some delightful shots in the third to reel one point off Chuang. The day’s last match saw Puneri’s Sabine Winter defeat Madhurika Patkar 2-1 of the Lions in the second women’s singles match.last_img read more

Ontario may allow disclosure of prices in real estate bidding wars

TORONTO — Ontario is considering allowing realtors to tell prospective home buyers the prices of other offers in bidding wars.The government launched a consultation Thursday looking at the Real Estate and Business Brokers Act, and that’s one rule they’re looking at changing.Currently, if there are multiple bids on a home, the seller’s broker can only disclose the number of competing offers, but not the details of them.Through this method in a hot housing market, buyers often can blindly offer more than what they initially planned on spending in hopes of beating their competitor.The government’s consultation document says disclosing the details of competing offers could give prospective buyers better information to inform their decisions.Sellers would also know that potential buyers had not been deterred by the prospect of a blind bidding war.The Ontario Real Estate Association has been pushing for a change to that rule and a broader review of the act, and they say they are thrilled consultations are underway.The Canadian Press read more

UN chemical weapons inspection team to leave Syria on Saturday will brief

“Our experts are still on the ground investigating the use of chemical weapons,” Mr. Ban told journalists at Vienna City Hall, adding that the investigation team will continue its activities until tomorrow, leave Syria by Saturday morning and then inform him as soon as they are out.The team led by Swedish scientist Dr. Åke Sellström, has been carrying out its work without incident following a pause in the investigation Tuesday, when its convoy was attacked by snipers while heading to the Damascus suburb of Ghouta, where chemical weapons were allegedly used on 21 August.The shortened visit means the UN chief will not participate in the UN European Alpbach Forum, which will now be chaired by President Jose Manuel Barroso of the European Union.Earlier today, Mr. Ban said he spoke by phone with United States President Barack Obama about how the United Nations, the US and the world can work together, as well as “how we can expedite the process of the investigation.”Mr. Ban said he expressed his wish that the investigation team should be allowed to continue their work as mandated by the Member States to probe the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Government at Khan al-Asal and other claims. “I told him that we will surely share the information and the analysis of samples and evidence with Members of the Security Council and UN members in general,” Mr. Ban said.Also today, Mr. Ban discussed the investigation and the overall situation in Syria with Austrian President Heinz Fischer and Chancellor Werner Faymann. “We are of the opinion that the situation should be resolved in a peaceful way through dialogue,” he told journalists after the meetings.Mr. Ban and other senior UN officials, including Joint Special Representative of the UN and the League of Arab States Lakhdar Brahimi, have repeatedly urged pursuing all diplomatic options to bring the Syrian parties to the negotiating table, and stressed there is no military solution to the crisis. In a joint press encounter last night with Minister of Foreign Affairs Frans Timmermans in the Netherlands, Mr. Ban said that his responsibility and mandate were “to conduct a thorough and complete investigation” of the allegations of chemical weapons use in Syria and any actions on a response would be deemed by the Security Council.In response to speculation that the West is planning to take military action, Mr. Ban said he would not speculate on anything on which he is not aware, adding, “If there needs to be any such unilateral or military actions… as Secretary-General I would like to emphasize that it is the Charter that provides the framework for action to ensure international peace and security.”Mr. Ban has reiterated that the use of chemical weapons by anyone, for any reason, under any circumstances are crimes against humanity and that must be held accountable. read more

Coop student managing Olympic information desk

Jordan BeckettBrock student Jordan Beckett is in Vancouver this month on a paid co-op placement with the 2010 Olympic Games. Below is his account of it.**My journey with the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC) began in January 2009. Over the past 14 months, I completed two co-op placements with VANOC in two very different, exciting positions. I have always been extremely passionate about the Olympic Games and being a co-op Bachelor of Business Administration student with a concentration in International Business, there was certainly no better opportunity than to work at the Vancouver 2010 Games.I completed my first co-op placement in Official Languages, the function within VANOC responsible for ensuring the bilingual delivery of the Games. In May, I began a second, extended co-op with the Olympic Family Services function which will continue until the end of the Paralympic Games. I have been amazed at the engaging, high-level projects that I was assigned pre-Games and I am currently managing the Olympic information desk at one of the Olympic Family Hotels.My co-op experience with VANOC has certainly had an impact on my career planning. The abundant knowledge and the variety of skills that I have developed will make me a good candidate to work for future organizing committees. Being an “Olympic gypsy” would certainly be a great time. I look forward to the 2015 Pan Am Games which were recently awarded to Toronto and the 2016 Summer Olympic Games to be held for the first time in South America, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.Contributing to the planning and staging of Canada’s Games and being an ambassador of both Canada and the Olympic movement has been an incredible experience. Enrolling in a co-op program has definitely been one of the best decisions that I have made. I would sincerely like to thank the Brock Co-op office for all of their help and support in making this once in a lifetime opportunity possible.Go Canada go!Jordan BeckettHonours Bachelor of Business Administration, Co-op read more

Au pairs for the elderly sought as livein care booms

first_imgBut he said the challenge now is not attracting people to considering live-in care but in finding the carers to meet the demand. “The big push we’ve got on right now is getting the message to people who haven’t thought of being carer of considering it as a career. We want to get people to look at it. In the UK he sector has taken a lot of people from South Africa with ancestral British passports, as well as Australia and New Zealand and increasingly from Eastern Europe, but we are really keen to more British people to look at this.”The growing demand is illustrated by the approach of Pete Dowds and Tom Brooks, two young web entrepreneurs who set up a service called Elder.org last year to help families find carers for older loved-ones quickly using similar technology to online dating and consumer review websites. “Our technology makes it easier to discover the service, undertake care appraisals, be matched with a tailored carer, and the delivery and management of care itself.“We want to ensure that when we match care professionals with recipients, they aren’t only matched based on skill and requirement, but also on common interests.“This way, once the carer moves into the recipient’s home, they have a mutual interest which can help them build strong and lasting relationships, developing into genuine companionship.”  Carers are carefully matched to ensure they have similar interests as their clients and are likely to become friends. They then move into a spare room in their clients’ home, sometimes on rotation with others.  According to the Live-in Care Hub, a network of 14 small and medium sized companies offering live-in care set up two years ago to promote the sector at present only around 10,000 families currently make use of it although all have reported growing interest. By comparison, around 290,000 older people in England and Wales live in care homes, according to the last census.“There does seem to be an increased awareness,” said Peter Seldon, chief executive, Consultus Care, a founding member of the group.“There is also a general receptivity to the whole notion of keeping mum and dad in their own home with family around them – and their pets, pets are particularly difficult in a residential home. ” Man with walking stick Live-in care can be cheaper for couplesCredit:Bill Cheyrou/Alamy He added: “The element of companionship is very important and a crucial part of the selection process is [asking] are they going up have similar interests, are they going to be able to have a conversation, is a relationship possible; it’s not just about primary care.” WATCH: We paid a visit to Ken and Sylvia to learn a bit about their experience of receiving care form Shadika >>> https://t.co/5S4xe1hDdE— elder (@trustelder) September 28, 2016 It is a dilemma almost every family in the country will have to face one day, as more and more people live longer.But the choice between finding a care home for relatives increasingly unable to manage on their own and leaving them to struggle on in their home could become a thing of the past amid surging demand for live-in “companion carers”.Once a virtually unheard-of option, a small network of companies providing full-time live-in carers, say they are experiencing a rise in demand in the wake of waves of scandals about standards in care homes and traditional homecare agencies as well as headlines over soaring fees. People being cared for at home are less likely to suffer a fallCredit:Jonathan Brady /PA There is also a general receptivity to the whole notion of keeping mum and dad in their own home with family around themPeter Seldon, chief executive, Consultus Care With fees ranging from £750 to £1,400 per week, depending on the level of care needed, the cost is comparable to moving into a higher-end care home, and significantly cheaper for couples. Elderly couple Originally, they planned to offer a service arranging full-time live-in carers as a niche offering on the side. But such was the demand that, only a year later, they have now switched the company entirely to that direction. “Care is not just about providing safety, but helping to maintain a sustained quality of life for the recipient,” said Mr Dowds. Although still only catering for a tiny proportion of the older population, they are now hoping to become an increasingly mainstream choice, with some providers holding talks with NHS and social care bodies about future plans. They are also hoping to recruit an army of new carers, targeting recent divorcees and those considering a mid-life change of career and lifestyle.It follows research suggesting that older people who remain in the familiar surroundings of own home, with appropriate adaptations and live-in care, suffer a third fewer falls and a quarter fewer hip fractures than their counterparts in care homes.

Quels sont les dangers du plomb sur vos enfants

first_imgQuels sont les dangers du plomb sur vos enfants ? Publiée dans la revue Environmental Research, une étude française montre que dans notre pays, l’environnement intérieur et extérieur dans lesquels évoluent les enfants de moins de 6 ans présentent un taux non négligeable de pollution au plomb, susceptible d’entraîner des problèmes de santé.Bien qu’on ne parle officiellement de saturnisme qu’à partir d’une concentration en plomb de 100 μg par litre de sang, des effets sur l’organisme peuvent apparaître en deçà de ce seuil. Le Centre scientifique et technique du bâtiment (CSTB) et l’ l’École des hautes études en santé publique (EHESP) se sont associés pour évaluer ces risques – une première en France. Les chercheurs ont enquêté auprès de 484 foyers représentatifs des 3,6 millions d’habitations françaises abritant au moins un enfant de 6 mois à 6 ans – ce qui permet d’extrapoler les résultats.À lire aussiLa Méditerranée est officiellement la mer la plus polluée par le plastiqueLes concentrations en plomb ont été prises dans l’eau du robinet, les peintures et les poussières du sol des foyers, ainsi dans les aires de jeux ou cours d’immeubles. Résultats : presque 3% de ces lieux de vie (soit, extrapolation faite, environ 105.000 habitations abritant un jeune enfant) ont une eau du robinet contenant plus de 10 μg/L : c’est en dessous du maximum actuel fixé par la commission européenne (25 μg/L ), mais supérieur au maximum qui sera en vigueur à partir du 1er janvier 2013 (10 μg/L, justement).De la peinture au plomb – interdite en France depuis 1949 mais utilisée jusqu’après 1974 ! – serait présente dans près d’un quart des logements concernés, où, dans près de 4,7 % des cas, l’état de dégradation de ces peintures, contaminant les poussières ambiantes, pourrait exposer les enfants à des risques sanitaires. Pas mieux en bas des maisons ou des immeubles, puisque la quantité de poussière de plomb recueillie en extérieur est 3,2 fois supérieure à celle relevée dans les intérieurs les pires…Le 12 juillet 2012 à 19:50 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Oregon gov sends police after GOP senators who fled Capitol

first_imgSALEM, Ore. — Oregon Gov. Kate Brown deployed the state police Thursday to try to round up Republican lawmakers who fled the Capitol in an attempt to block a vote on a landmark climate plan that would be the second of its kind in the nation.Minority Republicans want the cap-and-trade proposal aimed at dramatically lowering the state’s greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 to be sent to the voters for approval instead of instituted by lawmakers. Negotiations with Democrats fell apart late Wednesday prompting conservatives to pursue a walkout, said Kate Gillem, a spokeswoman for Senate Republicans said Thursday.Some members have even left the state to avoid a vote, Gillem said. State police don’t have jurisdiction beyond state lines.Democrats have an 18 to 12 majority in the chamber, but need 20 members present for a quorum.Those opposed to the cap-and-trade plan say it would exacerbate a growing divide between the liberal, urban parts of the state and the rural areas, which tend to be more conservative. The plan would increase the cost of fuel, damaging small business, truckers and the logging industry, which is already in freefall due to federal environmental protections, they contend.“Protesting cap and trade by walking out today represents our constituency and exactly how we should be doing our job,” said Senate Republican Leader Herman Baertschiger, Jr., of Grants Pass.Under the proposed cap and trade program, the state would put an overall limit on greenhouse gas emissions and auction off pollution “allowances” for each ton of carbon industries plan to emit.last_img read more

Vancouver council wants time on ethics

first_imgDiscussions inched forward Monday night on setting a new ethics and conduct policy for the Vancouver City Council, but councilors wary of several details asked for another workshop on the topic.Over the last year, the city council has updated all of its policies, but the ethics and conduct code has remained as the most thorny — particularly in the wake of the investigation and subsequent censure of Councilor Jeanne Harris following a now-infamous meeting last September when she sparred with the mayor, another councilor and a citizen speaker. Harris’ culpability in that situation was decided by a three person ad-hoc committee that included the two councilors who filed the complaint against her. The new policy would remove the investigation from the hands of the city council and move it to an impartial hearings examiner, City Attorney Ted Gathe explained Monday night. The council will continue to have final say over what punishment would be meted out.Councilors spent time debating whether the hearings examiner should be permitted to make recommendations to the council about what level of punishment would be appropriate. Harris argued that a hearings examiner is impartial, and his or her recommendation of punishment would be a good “bar” to start from. Politics weigh too heavily on the city council to be impartial, said Harris, who was given a public letter of reprimand last year.But Councilor Jack Burkman said that without written guidelines for the examiner to follow, there wouldn’t be a way for he or she to advise on punishments. Councilor Jeanne Stewart added that if the council gave a punishment more harsh than what the hearings examiner recommended, “of course there would be an accusation of politics.”last_img read more

Disney Is Bringing Original Shows to Snapchat

first_imgStay on target Snapchat’s New Snap Spectacles Will Have Two Cameras, Cost $350Snapchat Launches New Original Programming, Multiplayer Games Snapchat is continuing to become a viable platform for all sorts of entertainment, from the news to quizzes to full-length shows. So it should come as no surprise that Disney has announced that it will be bringing new original shows to Snapchat in a deal that was announced on Wednesday.Disney isn’t the only company partnering with Snapchat, as groups like Viacom, NBCUniversal, and Turner Broadcasting System have joined the jamboree to bring in younger users. There’s no telling what kind of original content Disney will be creating for the app, but there’s a lot of potential there for shorter content to keep viewers engaged. And we’re talking a whole lot of silly clickbait too, I’m sure, with gifs and accompanying Vines, but that comes with the territory.There’s a larger and larger subset of those who devour media content on apps like Snapchat who prefer to skip out on regular television programming entirely, hooking them with bite-sized pieces of content and hoping to keep their interest piqued on social media networks.Although don’t get too excited just yet thinking your favorite Disney movies are going to come to Snapchat or anything like that. This will likely be a new crop of Disney stars aimed at tweens and younger teenagers, so if you’re not the target audience you may be disappointed. There’s still plenty of content on the way for the app, so it’s interesting to see this kind of platform and how it shakes out. It will no doubt be an important part of the way users consume media going forward, like it or not.If you were in charge of planning this type of content for Disney, what kind of shows would you schedule for users? Are you ready for Snapchat to further its revolution?last_img read more

GSI becomes nodal agency for collection preservation of meteorites in India

first_imgKolkata: The Geological Survey of India (GSI) has now been declared the Nodal Agency for collection, preservation, registration and dissemination of all Meteorite falls or finds within the country.”We are proud as GSI has become the sole custodian and curator of all meteorites,” said Dr Dinesh Gupta, director general of GSI. All the meteorite falls or finds within the Indian Territory are to be registered in the National Meteorite Repository (NMR) of India at GSI Kolkata, immediately after its collection. The declaration has been made by a recent notification issued by the Ministry of Mines, Government of India. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeThe collection and systematic cataloguing of meteorites has been in practice in GSI since 1865, when the entire meteorite collection of Professor Robert Philip Greg was purchased by the then Union government. The collection now adds up to nearly 700 meteorite samples, including ordinary and carbonaceous chondrites, achondrites, iron meteorites and stony iron meteorites. Apart from meteorite samples, a few impactites (basaltic melt glass, tektite etc.) and melt breccia from Lonar Crater, Maharashtra and Dhala (Mohar) Crater, Madhya Pradesh, are also curated at GSI Kolkata.

Veran’s IG4 Plug-N-Play Navigation System uses electromagnetic localization and 4D GPS-like information to enable clinicians to safely access normally difficult areas of the human body.”Using the Veran technology I was able to access a tiny cancer lesion directly behind the ribs that was continuously moving with respiration.

March 13, 2013 — The March 2013 issue of the Journal of Urology, publication of the American Urological Association, includes a study conducted by four physicians from Radiotherapy Clinics of Georgia (RCOG), a Vantage Oncology affiliate. The study, 25 Year Disease Free Survival Rate after Irradiation of Prostate Cancer Calculated with the Prostate Specific Antigen Definition of Recurrence Used for Radical Prostatectomy, is the first to analyze 25 years of follow-up data after radiation therapy treatment for prostate cancer patients.Frank Critz, M.D., founder and medical director of RCOG, the largest community-based prostate program in the United States, co-wrote the study along with three other RCOG physicians, James Benton, M.D., Philip Shrake, M.D., and Mark Merlin, M.D. The prostate program at RCOG is the only program of its kind to have gathered and maintained a clinical records database for all patients over a 30-year period in a consistent and comprehensive manner.”This study, the longest after irradiation of prostate cancer, confirms using the surgical PSA definition (PSA <0.2 ng/ml) that results from this program are equal to that of radical prostatectomy, thus giving men a choice of treatment and, after 15 year follow-up if the PSA is <0.2, late recurrence will be rare."The study follows 3,546 men with prostate cancer, treated with prostate seed implants followed by external beam radiation therapy (EBRT). None of the men included in the study received pre-treatment hormone therapy. The implant procedure used in these patients was updated in 1992, given improvements in treatment techniques. From the sample, 73 percent had no evidence of prostate cancer 25 years after the irradiation program.To compare like populations, this study compares patients treated between 1984 and 2000 to two previous studies that looked at patients who had surgical radical prostatectomy. The 15 years of follow-up data for these three studies calculated disease-free survival (DFS) based on a PSA<0.2 ng/dl. The surgical definition is much stricter than the one usually used in radiation therapy studies.  Results of these three studies showed comparable DFS at 10 (75 percent, 77 percent and 77 percent) and 15 years of follow-up (73 percent, 68 percent and 75 percent) respectively, showing that prostatectomy and the combination of seed implant followed by EBRT are equally effective. A sub-analysis of patients treated with transperineal implants and EBRT between 1995 and 2000 in the RCOG study showed a 15-year disease-free survival of 79 percent.A secondary analysis in this publication includes more than 300 men, treated 16 to 25 years ago, whose prostate cancer recurred after treatment. Recurrences were PSA-defined, and results showed the majority of recurrences happened within the first five years after treatment and no recurrences 15.5 to 25 years after treatment. This is the first to include interval-censoring analysis when looking at time to recurrence. The study concludes that follow-ups are necessary for 15 years after treatment to fully evaluate any treatment for prostate cancer. If a man's PSA is <0.20 ng/ml 15 years post-treatment, later recurrence of the disease should be rare.For more information: www.curingprostatecancer.com, www.rcog.com, www.jurology.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Image courtesy of Imago Systems Related Content News | Radiation Therapy | August 16, 2019 Drug Accelerates Blood System's Recovery After Radiation, Chemotherapy A drug developed by UCLA physician-scientists and chemists speeds up the regeneration of mouse and human blood stem... read more Feature | March 13, 2013 Journal of Urology Study First to Analyze 25 Years of Data After Prostate Radiation Therapy News | Mammography | August 14, 2019 Imago Systems Announces Collaboration With Mayo Clinic for Breast Imaging Image visualization company Imago Systems announced it has signed a know-how license with Mayo Clinic.
