We should be ashamed of how we treat our nation-builders,” said Rahul Gandhi, leader of the main opposition Congress party.Over the past week, some state governments facing public pressure organized trains and buses to bring back migrant laborers.Many are trudging great distances in the blistering heat through fields and forests to get home. Topics : Fourteen people were killed and five were injured, said a railway spokesman, C.H. Rakesh.”I have just heard the sad news about laborers coming under the train, rescue work is underway,” Railway Minister Piyush Goyal said on Twitter.Under the lockdown, all public transport has been suspended so migrant workers heading home often have to walk long distances to get there.The government has extended the lockdown until May 17.center_img An Indian train killed 14 migrant workers who had fallen asleep on the track on Friday while they were heading back to their home village after losing their jobs in a coronavirus lockdown, police said.Tens of thousands of people have been walking home from India’s big cities after being laid off because of the lockdown to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus since late March.The driver tried to stop the freight train when he saw the workers on the tracks in the western state of Maharashtra, the railway ministry said, adding it had ordered an inquiry.last_img read more

Victor Moses on cloud nine over Inter Milan win against Ludogorets

first_img Loading… “Back to winning ways and we go again Sunday,” Moses posted on Twitter. The Nerazzurri came into the game on the back of a disappointing 2-1 loss at Lazio last weekend which dropped them down to third on the Serie A log. Christian Eriksen’s first Inter Milan goal and Romelu Lukaku’s late penalty gave the Italians a first-leg victory over Bulgarian side Ludogorets in the Europa League last 32. It took Antonio Conte’s side 71 minutes to break down their defensive opponents but Eriksen broke the deadlock with a strike from the edge of the area. The Dane could have added a second minutes later when a 25-yard effort hit the bar.Advertisement Moses played for 72 minutes and was replaced by Nicolo Barella. He has now featured six times in all competitions for Inter since moving on loan from Chelsea in January.

McIlroy in line for fine

first_img A win on Sunday could lift Molinari from 66th in the world rankings to inside the top 30, securing his place in the US Open and Open Championship. “I missed the Masters this year after 22 majors in a row and it was not a nice feeling, so I hope I will be back soon,” he added. Molinari enjoyed a two-shot lead over former European number one Robert Karlsson, with England’s Chris Wood, Scotland’s Marc Warren, former US PGA champion YE Yang and Spanish pair Miguel Angel Jimenez and Jorge Campillo all four under. Karlsson has suffered a number of problems with form and fitness since topping the Order of Merit in 2008, most famously withdrawing from the 2012 Open Championship on the eve of the event because he was unable to start his backswing. The 45-year-old Swede at least has happier memories of Wentworth, shooting a course-record 62 in the third round in 2010 after having to hire a private jet to get back to London on Saturday morning because he had flown home to Monaco the day before thinking he had missed the cut. Wood has played just six events this season after spending five months on the sidelines with a broken bone in his wrist, suffered when he fell during a tennis lesson in October. “It’s a long way for me to fall and it hurt,” the 6ft 6in Bristolian joked. “It was misdiagnosed as bone bruising for a month and then I was in a cast for two months at home. “It was a nightmare because I fell out of the top 60 on the Race to Dubai and plummeted down the world rankings. It’s been a struggle and feels like I have been working hard to finish 30th every week. I did finish third in Morocco but I think it was always going to be a bit of a battle after five months.” Scotland’s Stephen Gallacher was forced to withdraw before play began due to a wrist injury, while three-time major winner Padraig Harrington lasted just two holes before retiring with a shoulder problem. There was better news for England’s Andrew Johnston, who won a BMW M4 for a hole-in-one on the 10th, which he marked with an exuberant chest-bump celebration with a friend in the gallery. ” It took one bounce and hit the flag and went straight in. It just happened so quick, so I didn’t really know what to do,” Johnston said after his 77. “I just saw him. He looked and I was like, ‘All right, now is the time to go’.” World number one Rory McIlroy faces a fine from the European Tour after throwing a club in frustration during the first round of his defence of the BMW PGA Championship title on Thursday. McIlroy also threw his ball into the water on the 18th after missing a birdie attempt and conceded afterwards that mental fatigue was a factor in the fourth of five tournaments in succession. “Physically I am all right – I got back to my hotel at 4:30pm (on Wednesday) and did not leave it until 6:30 this morning – but mentally I could feel myself getting a little angry out there,” said McIlroy, who also threw his 3-iron into a lake at Doral during the WGC-Cadillac Championship in March. “Acceptance of bad shots is the thing I have been doing so well and I feel like my patience was wearing a bit thin today. I just need to stay in control of my emotions because I feel like that’s one of the things – if I’m a little tired or a little fatigued mentally, I’ll start to be hard on myself and start to get down on myself. “I played okay. There weren’t really any aspects of my game I thought were really good, but at the same time I don’t feel any aspect of my game was really off.” McIlroy was only three off the pace when he finished, but ended the day six off the lead held by former Ryder Cup team-mate Francesco Molinari, who posted a flawless 65. Molinari, whose brother Edoardo retired with a wrist injury after playing 16 holes in eight over, was joint second in the Spanish Open last week and has an excellent record at Wentworth, having finished seventh, ninth and seventh the last three years. “I think I missed one green on the third and chipped up to two feet, so it was as stress-free as it could be round here,” said the 32-year-old, who has recorded just one top-10 finish in 10 starts on the PGA Tour this season. “I love this place and it’s good to be back. It rewards accuracy, which suits my game. “Playing in America is a new challenge and I think it’s helping my game to improve. Hopefully I will get my rewards soon.” McIlroy is looking to claim a third win in four events, having followed his victory in the WGC-Cadillac Match Play with a third consecutive top-10 finish in the Players Championship and a seven-shot triumph at Quail Hollow on Sunday. However, the 26-year-old struggled to keep his emotions in check after carding four birdies and three bogeys in a round of 71, hurling his three-wood down the 17th fairway after hitting a poor approach to the par five.

Football News Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to reportedly replace Jose Mourinho in Manchester United

first_imgLondon: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks set to replace Jose Mourinho as Manchester United’s interim manager after the club appeared to accidently announce the appointment on their website. Mourinho was axed on Tuesday after just two-and-half years in charge at Old Trafford and the troubled Premier League club are reportedly ready to bring back one of their old heroes to take his place on a temporary basis. Solskjaer, currently in charge of Norway’s Molde, was widely reported to be United’s leading candidate for the interim role for the rest of the season while they search for a permanent appointment in the close-season. There has been no official announcement from the club, however a video appeared on United’s official website celebrating Solskjaer and seeming to confirm his appointment. A video of him scoring the winner for United in their 1999 Champions League final triumph against Bayern Munich was accompanied with the headline ‘The most famous night of Ole’s career’. Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg also appeared to confirm Solskjaer’s appointment, writing on Twitter: “Great day for Norwegian football.Read More | Manchester United sack José Mourinho after defeat at LiverpoolGood luck keeping control of the Red Devils.” Solskjaer, nicknamed the baby-faced assassin, scored 128 goals in 367 appearances for United during 10 seasons playing under the club’s legendary boss Alex Ferguson, who signed him from Molde in 1996.Read More | Manchester City beat Leicester 3-1, progress to semi-finalAfter retiring, the Norwegian was appointed as United’s reserve-team boss before joining Molde as manager in 2010. Solskjaer had an ill-fated spell in charge of Cardiff in 2014, winning just nine of his 30 games as they were relegated from the Premier League before being dismissed and returning to Molde in 2015. Molde’s season ended last month and does not resume until March 31, with Solskjaer unlikely to refuse the chance to manage such a prestigious club. Ironically, his first match in charge of United could be against Cardiff on Saturday if the mooted deal is completed in time. United are in sixth place in the Premier League after their worst start for 28 years. Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino and former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane are among the bookmakers’ favourites to take the United job at the end of the season.

Cross country teams headed for NCAA Championships

first_img— UWBadgers.comcontributed to this report The Wisconsin men’s and women’s cross country teams will runin their final meets of the season when they compete in the NCAA Championshipsin Terra Haute, Ind., Monday.For the men’s team, the No. 5 Badgers will be one of 31teams in the meet, which is held at the LaVern Gibson Cross Country Course.After finishing second last season behind Colorado, UW will look to repeat itschampionship performance in 2005.The men’s team has been led all year by Stu Eagon and MattWithrow, and it will rely on the junior duo again in the NCAAs. Withrow, whohas struggled with injuries during the season, recently took first place in theBig Ten Conference meet and was named the conference’s men’s cross country athleteof the year.Eagon, an All-American the past two seasons with theBadgers, also battled injuries early in the year. Head coach Jerry Schumacherexpects Eagon to be one of his team’s leaders Monday.”I think Stuart, he’s a savvy veteran now,” Schumacher said.”The one thing I can count on with Stu is that he will do his job as a teammember, and we’ll get what he’s capable of doing on that day. It won’t beanything less.”Oregon will carry the top ranking into the men’s division,while defending champion Colorado holds the No. 2 spot. Despite not being oneof those top teams heading into the championships, Schumacher firmly believesseveral teams have a shot at winning. “A lot of times it’s come down to a two- or three-way teambattle out of 31 teams, and this year, I think there’s eight of those 31 thatare really going to be banging away for the win,” Schumacher said.The women’s team, which finished fourth in last year’sNCAA’s, brings the No. 23 ranking into Monday’s event. The Badgers found out after a successful showing at lastweekend’s NCAA regionals that they would compete in the championship, which didnot come as much of a surprise to head coach Jim Stintzi.”You can kind of figure out whether you’re going to make thenational championships or not, so we had a pretty good idea that we were inafter the race,” Stintzi said in a press conference last Monday.Two of UW’s top runners were held out of the regionals meet.Ann Detmer was suffering from a thigh injury, and freshman Cassie Hintz wasdiagnosed with mononucleosis. Stintzi said Detmer will run for sure Monday, but the statusof Hintz, who has been the team’s No. 1 runner throughout the season, wasday-to-day at the time of the press conference.”We just need to work with Cassie and the doctor,” Stintzi said. “It’s going tobe their call.”For Stintzi’s squad, how the team fared throughout thecourse of the season will not factor into Monday’s race. And to him, that’s agreat mindset for his players to have.”The great thing about cross country is the championshipsare run in one day, and if you’re on that day, you can do really well,” Stintzisaid. “So my speech to my athletes is we simply need to put together what we’vedone in pieces throughout the year, and we can be really competitive.”Both meets will be broadcast live on CSTV.last_img read more

California’s versatile defense, strong inside game sends Golden Bears to 64-61 win over UNLV

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 21, 2013 at 10:32 pm Contact Michael: mjcohe02@syr.edu | @Michael_Cohen13 SAN JOSE, Calif. — California overcame woeful free throw shooting in the final moments to hold off UNLV and advance to the Round of 32 with a 64-61 win over the Running Rebels. The Golden Bears, seeded 12th in the East Regional, won in front of a pseudo-home crowd to play the winner of Syracuse and Montana on Saturday.Here are a few rapid-reaction thoughts from HP Pavilion on California: The Golden Bears play zone — California used a hybrid blend of 2-3 and 3-2 zone Thursday to frustrate UNLV. Anthony Bennett, UNLV’s leading scorer and a potential No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft, was held to 13 points on just 3-for-10 shooting. The Rebels also shot only 28.6 percent from beyond the 3-point arc.Robert Thurman is a menace — Thurman walked onto the team following one year at Norwich in Connecticut. He’s a 6-feet-10-inch, 265-pound bruiser whose offensive repertoire consists of little more than dunking the ball. But he did that well Thursday (12 points on 6-for-7 shooting) and helped lock down Bennett on defense.Allen Crabbe is for real — Crabbe is California’s leading scorer (18.7 points and 6.0 rebounds per game). The 6-feet-6-inch guard is a talented slasher who can also hit from 3-point range. He led the Golden Bears with 19 points on 7-for-16 shooting Thursday while also grabbing eight rebounds and dishing out five assists.California struggled at the free-throw line — The Golden Bears almost choked the game away against UNLV on Thursday due to poor shooting from the charity stripe. Of all the California players to attempt free throws, only Crabbe shot better than 40 percent. Justin Cobbs shot 2-for-5, Richard Solomon was 0-for-2 and Tyrone Wallace was 1-for-4.The time for Saturday’s game between California and the Syracuse/Montana winner has not been announced.

Guard Cancer finds success for Cornell after rejoining team for his senior season

first_imgGalal Cancer hates it when people say academics were purely the reason he left the Cornell basketball team with just two games remaining in his sophomore season.When he walked into head coach Bill Courtney’s office in early March 2013, Cancer said everything he hadn’t in his previous three or four talks with his coach. The frustration, the pressure, the disappointment — everything spilled out.Overwhelmed by the combination of his team’s struggles, his struggles on the court and his performance academically, Cancer said he wanted to leave the team.Courtney felt he was making a rash mistake.“I’d never let something like that get to me before, so I had to take a step back and evaluate,” Cancer said. “It was one of the toughest decisions I’ve ever made in my life. But I won’t allow myself not to perform to my ability in both (basketball and school).”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWhen Cancer left, there was no certainty he’d return. Nearly 18 months after the coach gave up on him, though, Cancer was back on the team after being forced to try out and switch positions. The senior guard leads the team in steals and is third in 3-point shooting percentage, scoring and minutes played. He’ll continue his comeback when the Big Red (6-6) travels to play Syracuse (8-4) on Wednesday at 6 p.m. in the Carrier Dome.Despite disagreeing with Cancer’s decision, Courtney didn’t fault him for making it. He just didn’t plan on ever bringing him back.“I had to be bigger than that and understand,” Courtney said. “If (Cancer) would’ve said, after two or three months, he wanted to come back then yeah, we would’ve let him back on the team.”But Cancer missed that window. Courtney gave up. He had to move on.Cancer had more free time than he’d ever had. He worked out four times per week, 2-3 hours at a time, refined his jump shot and ravenously consumed film of NBA games.But he was feeling basketball’s tug. Newman Arena, Cornell’s home court, beckoned. He let himself be lured in, going to see his former teammates play.“That was torture for me,” Cancer said. “The most painful part of the experience was seeing my boys finish with that (2-26) record.”Devin Cherry, Cancer’s best friend and replacement at point guard, went to Cancer’s room after many games during that bitter season.Cherry vented his frustrations. Cancer said he wished he was playing. Then the two would work out, with Cherry keeping Cancer updated on what happened in Cornell practices.“To me, it was just like he was on the team, even though he technically wasn’t,” Cherry said.In June, Cancer decided he wanted to come back. Again he stood, darkening Courtney’s doorway unannounced.But Courtney told him rejoining wasn’t going to happen unless he tried out.The first phase was ensuring that his teammates wanted him back. Cancer had to call each teammate — including the freshmen he didn’t know — and ask if they’d be OK if he returned.They were. That, along with his willingness to do such a task, made Courtney think things may go differently.As Cancer worked his summer job on campus, he appeared in the gym frequently with teammates. He told Courtney he’d come back under whichever role given, even if he never played a minute.“It’s a testament to him that he was able to do all these things even though I told him, ‘I’m probably not taking you back,’” Courtney said. “But the summer went on and school started and he was basically a member of the team by then. He ingratiated himself back into the mix.”But he’d have to switch positions. Cancer had been a point guard basically his whole life, but Cherry drove the offense now. Armed with his refined jumper, Cancer transitioned to shooting guard. In nearly the same volume of attempts, he has upped his percentage from 3-point range from 29.2 percent his sophomore year to 39.1 percent this season.Defenses, now forced to respect his shot, have guarded Cancer tighter. It makes it easier to up-fake and let him fight his way to the paint. Once there, the innate ball-handler in him can take over.Even when he’s not shooting the ball well, he’s still capable of getting other players involved on the offensive end.Following Cornell’s win over Siena last Tuesday in his hometown of Albany, New York, Cancer got a chance to spend Christmas with his family.He spent two days — Christmas Eve and Christmas Day — at home, seeing his 5-year-old sister opening presents, watching movies like “The Santa Clause” and challenging family at Madden and NBA 2K on his PlayStation 4.It was a nice reprieve, but a brief one. Cancer had to get back to the Cornell campus and continue a season that he had to earn the right to be a part of.“He is happier, you can just tell,” said Amiera Cancer, his 18-year-old sister. “He didn’t want to sit out another season when he could be helping them.” Comments Published on December 30, 2014 at 12:13 pm Contact Sam: sjfortie@syr.edu | @Sam4TR Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
