Maharashtra to find its own Hima Das through Mission Shakti

Posted on by

first_imgFollowing the success of ace sprinter Hima Das, the Maharashtra government has decided to speed up its programme to spot Olympic talent in remote tribal regions of the State. Sudhir Mungantiwar, State Minister of Finance and Planning, Forests, held back-to-back meetings on Tuesday to formalise the launch of Mission Shakti and hunt for talented athletes in remote areas.“Through Mission Shakti, international-quality facilities will be provided with a view to increase our medal tally in the Olympics. Actor Aamir Khan will inaugurate it in Chandrapur on August 4. I have reviewed the inauguration plans and the status of development works,” Mr. Mungantiwar said, after meeting officials.The actor is already involved in several social initiatives of the government and had last year agreed to participate in the programme, which aims to groom tribal student for an Olympic medal by 2024. The programme for now is being implemented in Chandrapur and Gadchiroli districts and will be extended to the rest of the State soon. A bunch of tribal students scaled Mount Everest last year, prompting the government to announce the support system to train and encourage future athletes.The mission is directed towards six sporting disciplines, while grooming the students for selection in the 2024 Olympics. The government has set aside funds at the district level to construct facilities and a stadium, while a mega sports complex is planned at Ballarpur in Chandrapur with a focus on six areas: archery, shooting, volleyball, swimming, weightlifting and gymnastics. “The actor had last year promised to visit the districts and encourage young students for the mission. We are all set to launch the event and hope to find a Hima Das in Maharashtra soon,” said a senior official.last_img read more

Indian golfer Gaganjeet Bhullar finishes 5th at Indonesian Masters

Posted on by

first_imgIndia’s Gaganjeet Bhullar fired five-under-par 67 in the final round to finish fifth at the Indonesian Masters golf tournament on Sunday.Bhullar, who won his sixth Asian Tour title last week, finished with a total of 12-under-par 276 at the Royale Jakarta Golf Club.He ended his campaign six shots behind the champion, Poom Saksansin of Thailand, who also fired a 67 on the final day to win his first Asian Tour title with a total of 18-under-par 270.Saksansin cruised to a comfortable five-shot victory and Thai teenagers Phachara Khongwatmai (68) and Suradit Yongcharoenchai (68) — both aged 17 — and Japan’s Masahiro Kawamura (70) had to settle for the tied second place at the $750,000 Asian Tour event.The 28-year-old Bhullar, meanwhile, found 14 fairways and 18 greens in regulation but was let down by a cold putter where he negotiated the greens in 31 putts. (Ganganjeet Bhullar ends long wait with win in Korea)”A 62 was definitely out there. I’m pretty happy the way I played after winning last week. This course is one of my favourites on the Asian Tour,” the Indian said after his round.”I played well for three days. Today was in the first in a long time that I hit 14 fairways and 18 greens. I’m glad that I was in contention during the week. There’s a lot of positives I can take out from the last two weeks,” he added.S. Chikkarangappa, the other Indian in the fray, also scored 67 in the final round to finish joint sixth with a total of 277. Lee Chieh-Po of Taipei was also at the joint sixth spot with a final round of 68.advertisement”I’m happy with how I finished. I must take the result however it comes. I’m playing really solid. Sometimes luck is not on your side but it doesn’t mean that I should be disappointed with that. I’m happy with how I’m playing,” Chikkarangappa said.”I learnt how to play in the tough conditions. Now I’m used to it so when there is a rain delay no matter what, I will make sure it doesn’t distract me. I’ll stay focussed and not blame the weather. I can take out a lot of positives from this week.”Saksansin held a two-shot lead at the start of the day and stayed ahead of the chasing pack by shooting six birdies against one bogey.The 23-year-old, who won his first Asian Development Tour (ADT) title in Malaysia last year, showed no signs of nerves when he made the turn in 34 shots before tightening his grip on the pole position with three straight birdies on holes 10, 11 and 12.Dropping only two shots in 72 holes, Saksansin played solid golf throughout the week and stayed calm under pressure when a host of players briefly threatened his lead early in the round.”It feels great to be a champion. I just tried not to make bogeys today. Anything in the red numbers was good enough for me. Honestly, I was only hoping to make enough money to keep my Asian Tour card. This victory exceeded my expectations,” he said.”I didn’t get into trouble in the first place so that’s why I only dropped two shots this week. My putting really saved me as well. My family will be very happy that I won, it also proves that I can play among the best players.”The victory earned him $135,000 which moved him from 101st to 21st position on the Asian Tour Order of Merit.last_img read more

RADA Launches Competition to Boost Productivity

Posted on by

first_img The RADA offices will be assessed in a number of areas The Rural Agricultural Development Authority (RADA) has launched a competition among its 13 parish offices aimed at enhancing the agency’s services to farmers island-wide, and contributing to increased agricultural production.Agriculture and Fisheries Minister, Hon. Roger Clarke officially launched the project on Wednesday, September 11, at his Hope Gardens offices in St. Andrew.Some $1 million is up for grabs in the contest, which got underway in August, and is being held over 12 months concluding in July 2014. The objective is to engage staff in efforts that will boost and enhance service delivery; strengthen parish leadership and team work in areas that will positively impact staff and, by extension, production and productivity in the sector.The RADA offices will be assessed in a number of areas. These include crop production; marketing plans; market-driven production; project and livestock development; formation and strengthening of farmers groups, with emphasis on incorporating women and youth; farmer registration and verification; and agricultural disaster risk management initiatives.Each parish office is expected to write and implement at least two viable projects capable of generating income totaling at least $500,000 or strengthen the capacities of existing initiatives.The winning parish will receive $500,000 and the Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries trophy, while the second place parish will land the $250,000 runner-up prize.  A prize of $250,000 will also be awarded to the parish deemed to have topped all competition categories.The top two parishes will present their projects during the 2014 staging of the Denbigh Agricultural, Food and Industrial Trade Show, in May Pen, Clarendon.Agriculture and Fisheries Minister, Hon. Roger Clarke, in launching the competition, said he “wholeheartedly” endorsed the initiative. He pointed out that the competition’s goals and objectives “are things that are practical and…can be done.”“Whatever we do to improve their (RADA) efficiency (and) to challenge them to reach that higher level, is something that is welcomed. This morning’s exercise is just a first step (in this regard),” the Minister said.In his remarks, RADA Board Chairman, Dr. Densil Williams, noted that the competition is geared towards assisting to boost agricultural outputs, while strengthening the agency’s role to this end.“We are of the view that if we are going to move the sector and RADA forward, there has to be some element of competition among the stakeholders. I am of the firm view that at the end of it all, what you will see is a stronger and better RADA and (sector) going forward,” Dr. Williams said. Some $1 million is up for grabs in the contest RADA has launched a competition aimed at enhancing the agency’s services to farmers Story Highlightslast_img read more

African Players Walk Out on Russian Soccer Club After

Posted on by

Igor Gamula  photo from www.independent.co.uk.comAfter the coach of a Russian professional soccer club made offensive comments last week regarding his African players, the players have refused to train with the team.On Friday, coach Igor Gamula of the Russian club FC Rostov said his club had “enough dark-skinned players, we’ve got six of the things,” according to Thestar.com.Paul Mitchell, agent for Rostov’s South African defender Siyanda Xulu, told thestar.com that the five African players “are not prepared to train under the current coach until such time as the situation has been dealt with.Gamula’s comments are just the latest in a head-spinning spate of racist comments and actions directed at Black athletes. While racism in sports is hardly new, the latest incidents still seem shocking at a time when Blacks seem to be such a dominant force in the sports world.Of course there was the infamous case of Donald Sterling, former owner of the Los Angeles Clippers who was caught on tape making racist comments just before last year’s NBA playoffs. The team responded by dumping their Clippers warmup jackets and pants on the court to show their disgust with Sterling. The NBA owners voted to remove Sterling from the NBA by forcing him to sell the team.More recently, Atlanta Hawks co-owner Bruce Levenson offered to sell his portion of the team when he found an e-mail he had written two years ago that he considered to be “inappropriate and offensive.”In the international arena of soccer, racism has been a continual problem. In 2007, Serge Branco, a midfielder from Cameroon who played in a Russian league, endured constant racial abuse from fans of the Zenit St. Petersburg soccer club, according to the New York Times. In 2008, Zenit manager Dick Advocaat reportedly said, “I would be happy to sign anyone, but the fans don’t like Black players.” It was in 2011 when a Zenit fan offered a banana to Roberto Carlos, a Brazilian player. Zenit was also the last top-level Russian club to have never signed a Black player until September 2012, when it signed the Brazilian forward Hulk and Belgian Axel Witsel.In hockey, P.K. Subban, the Black defenseman for the Montreal Canadiens, was bombarded with racist tweets after his game winning goal in double overtime against the Boston Bruins in Game 1 of the series. Using Twitter, Bruins fans broadcasted their offensive and racist language. read more

Best DVRs for cord cutters

Posted on by

first_img Mentioned Above Amazon Fire TV Recast Read CNET’s review Now playing: Watch this: Josh Goldman/CNET Though the Roamio OTA Vox is discontinued, you can still find it on sale. It’s not as fast as the Bolt but works in the same way. Try to get the lifetime option and you won’t have to pay ongoing fees. Read CNET’s review 38 The Tablo Quad is the latest version of the popular cord-cutting DVR and goes all-in on features. There’s room for an internal drive and the inclusion of four tuners should cater for even the most demanding users. It’s not the easiest device to setup though, and its device compatibility doesn’t live up to the same power-user expectations. AirTV: Best supplement for Sling TV Sarah Tew/CNET Best laptops for college students: We’ve got an affordable laptop for every student. Best live TV streaming services: Ditch your cable company but keep the live channels and DVR. $229 Types of OTA DVR: Set top vs. network streamer? Sarah Tew/CNET The are two main types of DVR: a traditional set top, which connects directly to a single TV via an HDMI output, or a network streamer, which connects to your home network and streams to your TVs (via streamer like a Roku or, in the case of Recast, Amazon Fire TV) and other devices (phones and tablets) in the home or on the go. The TiVo Bolt OTA is a traditional set-top (which also has in-home streaming) while the AirTV and Amazon Fire TV Recast are straight network streamers. A set-top is best for people who usually watch on one TV, while a network device is for people who want to watch on multiple devices — say a tablet, phone and a living room TV. In general a network streamer is the more flexible option, and can better complement live TV streaming apps or services like Netflix. Other features to look for Regardless of which style of DVR you choose, there are some features common to both that you should look for. Two or more HD tuners — When it comes to HD tuners, the more your device has the merrier. The bare minimum is two so you can record two channels at the same time, or watch one while you record another, but heavy antenna heads might appreciate even more. 1TB or more of storage — Depending on the device you have, a terabyte of storage space should offer about 150 hours of programs. But if you choose a device such as the TiVo which automatically records shows it “thinks you like,” you could run out very quickly. Which is why you also need… The ability to add extra storage via USB or SD card — An external hard drive is an excellent option, providing your DVR doesn’t need a proprietary model. Generally, a 1TB external hard drive is cheap at about 50 bucks. 02-amazon-fire-tv-recastA 14-day program guide is essential on a modern DVR. Sarah Tew/CNET 14 days of guide data — While seven days is really the minimum useful amount, two weeks gives you more flexibility. No ongoing fees — Most people cut the cord to save money, so paying yet another monthly fee doesn’t make a ton of sense. TiVo does offer a lifetime service option so you pay for the device and guide data upfront. DirecTV Now, Sling TV, YouTube TV, Hulu and more: Live TV channels compared: Here’s how the top 100 channels stack up.Amazon Fire TV Recast review: One of the best cord-cutter companions yet. See at TiVo Sarah Tew/CNET Is it a streamer or is it a DVR? While the Stream plus is not quite there yet, some upcoming improvements — the ability to watch a still-recording program from the start and a full 14-day guide — should make this little streaming box more attractive. Amazon Fire TV Recast: Best DVR for cord cutters 17 Photos Share your voice Review • Amazon Fire TV Recast review: One of the best cord-cutter companions yet See it The AirTV has its pluses, and it is the cheapest of the three, but it’s really designed to complement a Sling TV subscription by adding local channels. So that’s an extra $25 a month on top.When paired with a Sling TV subscription, the AirTV provides the local channels that the service lacks. While you can use it on its own without paying extra money per month, the Amazon Fire TV Recast offers a better overall experience. And you need to add an external hard drive (not included) to make the AirTV function as a true DVR. Read CNET’s review See at Amazon Amazon Fire TV Recast Read CNET’s review Channel Master Stream Plus See at Amazon See at Channel Master 2:14 Read CNET’s hands-on Read CNET’s review There are currently three standout products to consider when buying a cord cutting DVR: the Amazon Fire TV Recast, the AirTV and the TiVo Bolt OTA. Each has its own unique features and capabilities, but there’s one I’d recommend to beginners and old hands alike. Let’s dive in.Disclaimer: CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of products featured on this page.My top three picks TiVo Bolt OTA: Best set-top DVR Dan Ackerman/CNET Comments Sarah Tew/CNET If you want a traditional set-top DVR, the TiVo Bolt OTA is your best option. While it’s pricier than the other products here (with service included), it also offers a ton of features including streaming apps, packaged with TiVo’s superb interface. While TiVo has the best name recognition of the three devices, the Bolt is not the “gotcha” you would expect from a company that basically invented the modern DVR. The Bolt relies a little too heavily on streaming apps and it’s twice as expensive — or more — than the other two.  See at Tablo Three more optionsNone of those top three appeal to you? I’ve also reviewed a trio of other OTA DVRs that I didn’t like as much. They still have appeal for certain users, however. If you live in an area with good access to TV broadcast channels, putting up an antenna is an easy and inexpensive (read: free) way to get the shows you want without paying for cable. And hooking a DVR to that antenna enables you to unlock the full potential of those broadcasts: saving them to watch later, skipping commercials and even, in some cases, streaming them to watch on multiple TVs or outside the home.The downside, of course, is that “free” turns into, well, not free, especially with DVRs that charge a monthly service fee. A bare-bones DVR like the Channel Master Stream Plus starts at about $150 while a TiVo with all the bells and whistles is about $500 after you pay the lifetime service fee. But compared to the cost of a live TV streaming services like DirecTV Now or YouTube TV, even the most expensive antenna DVR will pay for itself eventually. TiVo Roamio OTA Vox See at Amazon Preview • Amazon Fire TV Recast: The antenna DVR with Alexa starts at $230 10 old cables you should keep around (and 6 to toss) Cord Cutters (OTT) News • The Amazon Fire TV Recast DVR is back on sale for $190 TiVo Bolt OTA vs Amazon Fire TV Recast: which DVR should… Nuvyyo Tablo Quad: Best DVR for tweakers CNET may get a commission from retail offers. Tags The Amazon Fire TV Recast is my pick for most people looking to cut the cord.It’s not perfect — it really needs a Fire TV stick to work (and a Prime membership is also helpful) — but its combination of features and flexibility put it over the top. At $220-plus it’s not cheap, but at least it comes with an onboard hard drive. And there’s no monthly fee.While you’ll need a Fire TV Stick to watch on a TV, the lack of any ongoing fees makes the Recast very attractive. Amazon says it is also working to improve the visibility of live TV within its interface, which will make it even more easy to use. DVRslast_img read more

Sources deny LufthansaEtihad stake deal Report

Posted on by

first_imgGerman carrier Lufthansa is not in talks with Etihad Airways for a stake sale, sources familiar with the matter said on Tuesday, denying rumoured media reports that stated otherwise.”A financial stake is out of question for the moment,” a source, who was familiar with the airliner’s plans was quoted as saying by Reuters. Another source said the Abu Dhabi-based carrier will not be willing to pay for a stake in the German carrier.Also read: Lufthansa pilots resume strike; more than 800 flights cancelledAn Italian media report had earlier said that managers from the two airlines were reportedly holding talks and vetting the possibility of Etihad acquiring 30-40 percent stake in Lufthansa as a pre-cursor to a merger. Following the news, shares of Lufthansa went up by six percent on Tuesday. In December 2016, Lufthansa and Etihad had inked a code-sharing agreement to link their route networks. The two airlines said they would look at further cooperation. The first source quoted by the agency said Lufthansa was indeed in talks with Etihad over code-sharing and catering cooperation, but not merger. However, analysts quoted by the agency questioned the benefits of the deal. They also cited foreign ownership rules with regard to international traffic lights and called the rumoured deal as “implausible.”69 percent of the German-based carrier is owned by German investors, 13 percent by US investors and 9 percent by other nationalities.last_img read more
