India vs Australia: Peter Handscomb wants to don gloves in ODIs, ready to work on fitness

first_imgA surprise selection in the first T20I, Australia’s Peter Handscomb says he wants to don the gloves in ODIs too and is willing to work on his fitness to manage the workload of wicket-keeping and batting in the middle order.Handscomb was picked ahead of regular wicket-keeper Alex Carey in the first T20I against India at Visakhapatnam, giving a boost to his hopes of making Australia’s World Cup squad.”I can keep and all, I just need to make sure I’m fit enough and strong enough that if we keep first in a 50-over game I can still go out there and bat at four or five and make sure I’m still running hard between the wickets and doing everything right by the team,” Handscomb said.Carey is likely to be back in the team for the five-match ODI series but Handscomb wants to continue donning the gloves during rest of the tour if given a chance.”T20 is not too bad, it’s sort of over and done with pretty quickly. One-dayers can be a bit tougher. Especially in India with a bit of heat and up to the stumps a lot more on spinning wickets,” he was quoted as saying in”So it can be tough but it’s something I am looking forward to having a crack at.”Handscomb worked with assistant coach and World Cup-winning wicketkeeper Brad Haddin during limited-overs tours to India and New Zealand in 2017 and he credited him for improving his glovework.advertisement”Hadds is great,” Handscomb said. “We actually did a bit of work together, a couple of years ago maybe a year and a half ago.”That put me on the right path with my keeping. We found a little routine that I can do at training or before a game that just gets me going, gets me ready to keep, whether I’ve been training a lot or I haven’t been.”Australia had beaten India by three wickets in the first T20I. The two team will play the second T20I at Bangalore Wednesday.Also Read | India vs Australia: When everybody thinks yorkers, Bumrah has other tricks up his sleeveAlso Read | Glenn Maxwell defends MS Dhoni after India star’s go-slow approach in Vizag T20IAlso Read | India vs Australia: Virat Kohli creates history with 500 T20I runs vs Australialast_img read more

Fight over Charles Mansons estate remains in need of venue

first_imgLOS ANGELES, Calif. – The battle brewing over the estate of Charles Manson entered court Monday, though it remains unclear where it will ultimately be fought or whether others will join a pen pal and purported grandson laying claim to the cult leader’s possessions and body.The issue of venue is clouded because Manson, 83, died at a hospital in Kern County in November but was incarcerated in Corcoran State Prison in neighbouring Kings County. His body is still being held at the coroner’s office in Bakersfield.Attorney Alan Davis, representing the proposed administrator of the estate for purported grandson Jason Freeman, said Los Angeles County is the proper venue because Manson lived there before he was imprisoned for orchestrating the 1969 killings of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and eight other people.Judge David Cowan said it was premature to make the determination and he scheduled a hearing Jan. 26 to determine where the two separate matters — who controls his estate and who gets his remains — should be decided.Michael Channels, who said he became friends with Manson decades ago after repeatedly writing him in prison, challenged the Freeman claim. He holds a will that he said Manson signed and sent him 16 years ago.The two-page document said Manson disinherited two known sons and any unknown children and leaves Channels the entire estate, which includes potentially lucrative rights to his image and music he wrote and recorded.Guns N’ Roses 1993 recorded a Manson song, “Look at Your Game, Girl,” though royalties went to victims under a court order. Manson was also an acquaintance of Beach Boys drummer Dennis Wilson in 1968, and the band recorded a variation of a Manson song under the title “Never Learn Not To Love.”Channels, a contractor who said he has troves of Manson memorabilia including clothing and letters, and has sold autographed cassettes and CDs of the convict’s music, disputed there’s much value to the estate.“I feel sorry for the other side if they do win because there’s a lot bad juju that comes along with Charles Manson,” Channels said. “It’s not all roses.”Others have suggested Channels intends to profit off Manson’s will if he prevails.Channels, who said he couldn’t find a lawyer willing to take the case and represents himself, said his mission is only to make sure his friend can rest in peace. He said Manson feared his body could be mutilated and tattoos put on display and ashes worn in pendants.Court documents filed by Davis claim Freeman is the son of the late Charles Manson Jr. and the grandson of Charles Manson and his first wife, Rosalie Willis.A man who believes Manson fathered him during a Wisconsin orgy in the late 1960s also plans to make a claim to the estate.Matt Lentz, a Los Angeles-area musician who goes by the name Matthew Roberts, has a will Manson purportedly signed in January 2017 naming him as beneficiary, said his agent, Mike Smith. He said Manson gave the will to friend and memorabilia collector Ben Gurecki, who is named as executor.Lentz was expected in court, but didn’t show up Monday. Smith said Lentz was also having trouble finding a lawyer to take the case.last_img read more

Morocco’s Ambassador in Moscow, Abdelkader Lacheheb, announced the booklets in a statement to MAP on Tuesday, emphasizing that the information packets will provide assistance with public transportation, travel documents, and the FAN ID required by Russian authorities to attend matches. “The validity of this identification document, which should be carried throughout the tournament, starts ten days before the first match and extends to ten more days after the final match,” Lacheheb explained.The mobility booklets will also provide brochures with information on nearby hospitals in case of emergencies, as well as locations of hotels, museums, and stadiums and information about Russian law and regulations.Flights will be organized by Royal Air Maroc (RAM) to take off from Casablanca airport to the cities hosting the matches where Morocco’s Atlas Lions will play: Moscow, Saint Petersburg, and Kaliningrad, with other cities to be added in case the national team makes it to the next rounds.The Saint-Petersburg stadium will host the opening match of Atlas Lions against the Iranian team on June 15.The second scheduled match will be against Portugal team on June 20, while the Lions will faceoff against the Spanish team on June 25.For the first time since 1998, the Atlas Lions have emerged as heroes returning to the World Cup. “We do not fear anyone,” the Atlas Lions coach Hervé Renard said following their qualification.

Vital for Afghan election results to be certified and accepted by all

25 September 2009As Afghanistan and its international partners continue to await the final results of last month’s elections, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has stressed the importance of ensuring that the outcome reflects the will of the people. Mr. Ban and his top envoy in Afghanistan, Kai Eide, have in recent weeks called on national election authorities to ensure the integrity of the 20 August presidential and provincial council elections, in light of concerns that have arisen over irregularities in voting.“The level of alleged electoral irregularities has generated significant political turbulence leading to fears of a return to violence when election results are announced,” Mr. Ban wrote in his latest report on the situation in Afghanistan. He said that serious electoral fraud occurred, made possible primarily, but not exclusively, by the lack of access to parts of the country owing to the ongoing conflict.Following a decision by the Electoral Complaints Commission to review results from a number of polling stations, a credible audit and recount process is now coming to its conclusion, he said.“When the entire electoral process is completed, it will be of critical importance for the results to be accepted by all so that the election of Afghanistan’s future president can be certified and a new Government can be formed,” stated Mr. Ban.Forty-one presidential candidates, including two women, as well as over 3,000 candidates competing for provincial council seats, took part in the elections – the first to be organized by the Independent Election Commission (IEC) and described by Mr. Ban as having been “among the most demanding ever to be organized.” The Secretary-General also stated that it is “imperative” that the international community maintain a long-term commitment to Afghanistan, while adding that there must be a “decisive shift” in that relationship. “The Government must be enabled and determined to assume all the responsibilities that belong to a sovereign State,” he said. “The international community, for its part, must play a role that is clearly one of support. “A new contract between the Government of Afghanistan and its people will be a critical component in this shift of responsibilities,” he added. read more

Winter in Pakistani quake zone late but harsh UN refugee agency says

Winter in northern Pakistan has come late but with a vengeance, unleashing three days of rain and snow this week that is adding to the misery of survivors of the 8 October earthquake, grounding relief flights and causing landslides that cut off road access to many affected areas, the United Nations refugee agency (UNHCR) reported today. In camps for people left homeless by the quake, the storm caused some tents to collapse while a number of areas were flooded by the relentless rain, according to UNHCR, which is responsible for managing sites housing more than 137,000 people. Teams from the agency distributed additional emergency supplies of tents and plastic sheets to camp dwellers affected by the storm and are working to improve drainage around tents through trenching. The severe cold wave has plunged night-time temperatures below zero, with minus 13 degrees in the highest villages. Next week is expected to bring more rain and snow to the quake zone.Despite the bad weather, however, UNHCR reports no mass movements from the mountains and upper valleys down to camps at lower elevations. The agency surmises that this is because earthquake survivors have received enough supplies of food, shelter and blankets to stay where they are, or because the roads are blocked by landslides. In any case, UNHCR has made arrangements to receive 50,000 more people in the camps if necessary. read more

Fine Gael TDs on Twitter and free GP care The weeks news

first_imgIS THE NEWS getting you down? Current affairs causing a frown? Satirical site The Mire has an alternative angle on the week’s hot topics…TDs admit getting ‘carried away’ with 3D printerMonday, 6 May Leinster House is running out of room to store arses after the Government admitted to getting carried away with the State’s only 3D printer.“We had to make sure it worked so we photocopied our arses,” a TD explained.“It seemed like a good idea at the time.”An eyewitness said there were now more arses than usual running rampant around the Dáil with no regard for parliamentary democracy.Free GP care for long-term well by 2014 Tuesday, 7 May The Government is finalising plans to provide free GP care for all healthy citizens by 2014.The long-term well will receive GP cards which will entitle them to free GP care once they remain well.Any of the long-term well who become ill will forfeit the cards as a matter of course.“If a well person becomes ill that would be regarded as a breach of contract,” a Department of Health spokesman said. “We would take a dim view of that.” Political aides acted on own initiative when making potholes Wednesday, 9 May Several Fine Gael TDs have insisted they had no idea their parliamentary assistants had been digging potholes in their constituencies.One TD said his assistant had acted on his own and was not encouraged to do so by the gift of a Kango Hammer.“That was a DIY gift from me on his birthday,” the TD explained. “I never thought he’d use it to make potholes.”Gardaí say they are investigating allegations against nine parliamentary assistants accused of deliberately making potholes so their TDs could then get them filled in.“Even if nine of our assistants did this, they were all acting on their own initiative,” another TD insisted.It is not thought that this case is related to the case of another aide who got rid of newspapers that carried a negative article about his TD.Plan for child benefit to fund children’s prisons welcomedThursday, 9 MayA Government plan to divert child benefit to fund extra prison places for children has received widespread approval from parents and children.The plan follows reports that children aren’t getting custodial sentences as there is nowhere to put them.“It’s a disgrace that my son can’t go to prison until he’s 18,” a parent said. “It’s discrimination.”Many children also approved of the plan.“It’d be nice to see some of the children’s allowance spent on children for a change,” a child explained. “I bet they’ve Fifa 13 in prison.”Fine Gael TDs to insult each other as Twitter practiceFriday, 10 May Fine Gael TDs have been encouraged to insult each other to get them used to using social media.Digital media experts have told the party’s TDs that this would be an ideal preparation for interacting with the public on Twitter.“Phil Hogan has taken to it like a duck to water,” a Fine Gael TD said. “But Enda can be a bit sensitive.”“It would be helpful if members of the public would take the time to insult Fine Gael TDs whenever you happen to come across them,” a digital media expert said.Read previous weeks’ editions of The Mire’s Not the News >last_img read more

Just plugging any Android or iOS device into your computer might be

first_imgIt’s only considered good form to let someone recharge their low battery smartphone from a stray USB port if they come up to you with pleading eyes in some Starbucks, but you should resist the temptation to help a brother or sister out: you might be opening yourself up for a malware attack, particularly if the phone in question is an Android handset.Professor Angelos Stavrou from George Mason University has figured out a system in which a compromised Android smartphone can mount as a standard human input device (or HID) when plugged into a Windows, Linux or Mac PC, thereby giving keyboard and mouse access over to either preloaded malware or a remote hacker connected to the Android phone.The scariest part of this is the new device installation happens automatically, with almost notification that there’s anything untoward taking place. Worse, Professor Stavrou says the hack could easily be hacked to run on jailbroken iOS devices. Even antivirus and antimalware software won’t spot the intruder, apparently.In other words, as with your bed, trust the person you let into your USB ports. You certainly can’t trust their phone.Read more at CNETlast_img read more

Trumps pick for top judge has set US politicians on a collision

first_imgTrump’s pick for top judge has set US politicians on a collision course A Supreme Court seat has been open for more than 13 months, since the death of Justice Antonin Scalia.

Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article By Associated Press SENATE DEMOCRATS VOWED today to impede Judge Neil Gorsuch’s path to the Supreme Court, setting up a political showdown with implications for future openings on the high court.Still irate that Republicans blocked President Barack Obama’s nominee, Democrats consider Gorsuch a threat to a wide range of civil rights and think he was too evasive during 20 hours of questioning.Whatever the objections, Republicans who control the Senate are expected to ensure that President Donald Trump’s pick reaches the bench, perhaps before the middle of April.The Democratic leader in the Senate, Chuck Schumer of New York, was among five senators to declare their opposition to Gorsuch, even before the Judiciary Committee hearing on the nomination had ended.Schumer said he would lead a filibuster against Gorsuch, criticising him as a judge who “almost instinctively favours the powerful over the weak.” Schumer said the 49-year-old Coloradan would not serve as a check on Trump or be a mainstream justice.“I have concluded that I cannot support Neil Gorsuch’s nomination,” Schumer said on the Senate floor. “My vote will be no and I urge my colleagues to do the same.”Partisan Supreme Court Justice nominee Neil Gorsuch gathers his papers on Capitol Hill. Source: AP Photo/Susan WalshWhite House press secretary Sean Spicer called on Schumer to call off the filibuster, saying “it represents the type of partisanship that Americans have grown tired of.”A Supreme Court seat has been open for more than 13 months, since the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. Like Scalia, Gorsuch has a mainly conservative record in more than 10 years as a federal appellate judge.Shortly before Schumer’s announcement, Pennsylvania Senator Bob Casey, who faces re-election next year in a state Trump won, also announced his opposition. Casey said he had “serious concerns about Judge Gorsuch’s rigid and restrictive judicial philosophy, manifest in a number of opinions he has written on the 10th Circuit.”Democratic Senators Tom Carper of Delaware and Ron Wyden of Oregon, and Senator Bernie Sanders, the Vermont independent, also said they would vote against Trump’s nominee, among at least 11 senators who say they will oppose Gorsuch in the face of pressure from liberals to resist all things Trump, including his nominees.No Democrat has yet pledged to support Gorsuch, but Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia has said he is open to voting for him.Read: ‘We are not afraid’ – London pays tribute to Westminster victimsRead: Indian politician admits hitting air steward 25 times with slipper 22,229 Views last_img read more

Un superbe lagon bleu teint en noir pour empêcher toute baignade

first_imgUn “superbe” lagon bleu teint en noir pour empêcher toute baignadeLe conseil municipal du village de Harpur Hill en Angleterre a récemment pris une décision extrême pour empêcher toute baignade dans le lac considéré comme le “petit Bahamas” par les habitants aux alentours. Ce lac couleur bleu lagon mais très pollué, a été… teint en noir. Il est un petit village d’Angleterre près de la ville de Buxton qui aime se délasser lorsque les beaux jours reviennent. Où ça ? dans un lac surnommé “Blue Lagoon” (“Lagon bleu”). Comme son nom l’indique, cette étendue présente une eau bleue turquoise, digne des plus belles cartes postales. De quoi inviter les Tropiques dans la campagne anglaise et ravir les habitants de Harpur Hill.Seulement voilà, ce paradis est beaucoup moins paradisiaque qu’il en a l’air. Et les autorités sanitaires et municipales ne cessent de mettre en garde les baigneurs insolents : le lac est pollué et extrêmement sale. Carcasses d’animaux, épaves de voitures, ordures gisent ainsi au fond de l’eau et polluent lentement le coin de paradis. Quand bien même l’eau demeure d’un bleu tentateur à cause des pierres de la carrière.Une décision radicaleCeci représente donc un réel danger pour tous les habitants qui s’y baignent. Mais les baigneurs continuaient jusqu’à il y a peu de s’y rendre chaque week-end, loin d’écouter les mises en garde de la ville ou de faire attention aux panneaux. Pourtant, ces derniers insistent sur la dangerosité de l’eau, à savoir un risque d’infection fongique (champignon), d’irritation cutanée, des yeux ou encore de sévères troubles de l’estomac. D’après les autorités, le pH de l’eau avoisinerait les 12,5, revenant à se baigner dans de l’eau de javel avec les effets d’un savon décapant. De plus, l’eau serait très froide. À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?Pour empêcher enfin les baignades, le conseil municipal a donc pris une décision radicale : teinter le lac en noir. Aussi, disparu le merveilleux bleu lagon ! L’étendue d’eau prend désormais des reflets noirâtres qui ont de quoi détourner les plus motivés. “Les gens ne pensent plus qu’ils sont sur une île des Bahamas”, explique Mrs Thomas, une habitante de Harpur Hill citée par le Telegraph. “Magnifique à regarder, mais terriblement dangereux” Le colorant a même réussi à repousser plusieurs familles qui désiraient passer le weekend près du lac, a observé la police du comté. “Magnifique à regarder, mais terriblement dangereux” selon Rachel Thomas, le lac ne devrait plus tenter autant qu’avant. Regarder mais pas toucher semble être le maître-mot. Les Anglais devront donc désormais trouver d’autres plages s’ils ne veulent pas sortir tout noir de l’eau du lac de Harpur Hill.(Crédit photo: Colin Day – Flickr)Le 12 juin 2013 à 16:16 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Nikola Tesla ses inventions sa biographie tout savoir sur le scientifique

first_imgNikola Tesla : ses inventions, sa biographie, tout savoir sur le scientifiqueNikola Tesla est l’inventeur du courant alterné et une grande entreprise est nommée après lui. Qui était Tesla dont de nombreuses inventions ont été attribuées à tort à Thomas Edison ? Maxisciences vous livre tous les détails !Biographie :Naissance : 10 juillet 1856 à Smiljan en CroatieMort :  7 janvier 1943 à New York, aux Etats-UnisNikola Tesla est né dans une famille serbe orthodoxe. C’est l’avant-dernier d’une famille de cinq enfants. Il étudie les mathématiques à l’école polytechnique de Graz.  Il commence sa carrière en 1881 en tant qu’ingénieur à l’office centrale du télégraphe pour le gouvernement hongrois. En 1882, alors qu’il est à Paris, il est recruté par la Edison General Electric Company. Il déménage à New York où une partie de la ville vient d’être alimentée en électricité par une invention d’Edison, le courant continu. Problème, son invention crée des incendies et souffre de sérieux dysfonctionnements. Nikola Tesla invente alors le courant alternatif, qui permettrait de régler les problèmes créés par le courant continu. Mais Edison reste sur son idée et refuse celle de Tesla. Thomas Edison finit par lui promettre 50000 euros s’il réussit à développer réellement la technologie avant d’expliquer qu’il s’agissait d’une blague. Vexé, Tesla démissionne en 1885. Il crée sa propre entreprise en 1886, la Tesla Electric Light & Manufacturing, mais démissionne car il est en désaccord avec ses investisseurs. Il en ressort ruiné car il y a investi toutes ses économies. Un autre groupe d’investisseurs lui permet de créer sa propre société, la Nikola Tesla Compagny et construit une génératrice à courant alternatif. À lire aussiAlbert Einstein : QI, citations, biographie, tout savoir sur le plus célèbre des scientifiquesGeorge Westinghouse, un ingénieur qui s’intéresse au courant alternatif et souhaite concurrencer Edison embauche Nikola Tesla et la guerre à Edison est déclarée. De son côté, Thomas Edison commencer une campagne de lobbying en faveur du courant continu en tentant de prouver que le courant alternatif n’est pas fiable. Il fait plusieurs démonstrations publiques où il électrocute des animaux. Cela conduira à l’invention de la chaise électrique. En 1892, il évoque pour la première fois l’énergie libre. En 1893, c’est finalement Tesla et Westinghouse qui remportent le marché de l’électricité aux Etats-Unis et le pays se met à utiliser uniquement le courant alternatif. Au bord de la faillite dû à des investissements extrêmement lourds, Westinghouse convint Tesla de lui revendre ses parts.La même année, Tesla travaille sur la transmission sans fil, il invente la bobine Tesla en 1891 et un transmetteur à amplification en 1898. Toujours en 1898, il fait des démonstrations d’un bateau radio-commandé au Madison Square Garden et dépose un brevet. Deux ans plus tard, il découvre le principe du radar.Il fait construire la tour Wardenclyffe en 1901 afin de concurrencer Guglielmo Marconi qui a réussi la première transmission radio transatlantique. Suite aux résultats peu satisfaisant, Nikola Tesla se fait à nouveau abandonner par ses investisseurs. Il meurt le 7 janvier 1943, à New York. Le 18 décembre 2017 à 10:57 • Morsli Paulinelast_img read more
