Perth Test: Virat Kohli’s energy is infectious, says Jasprit Bumrah after enthralling day

first_imgVirat Kohli hit his 25th Test hundred and his sixth on Australian soil when he reached the milestone on Day 3 of the Perth Test on Sunday.En route his majestic 123, Kohli touched new highs in Test as he not only equalled Sachin Tendulkar’s record of six hundreds in Australia but also became the second quickest to hit 25 centuries in the traditional format.The India skipper also ended a drought against Australia with just 83 runs in his past seven Test innings against them.Kohli had reached his century in style with a flowing off-drive to the boundary then placed his helmet on the ground, pointed to his bat and made a yapping gesture with his gloved hand.Kohli showed no lasting ill-effects from an earlier injury scare when he was struck on the forearm by a searing Mitchell Starc bouncer and required treatment.”His [Virat Kohli’s] energy is always very infectious on the team because he is always looking to push forward and he is always motivating the team. It’s always great to have leader like him,” Jasprit Bumrah said at the end of third day’s play.After Kohli’s controversial dismissal, Rishabh Pant’s cameo at the end helped India get within 43 runs of Australia’s first innings score.Bumrah bowled superbly in favourable conditions. A bewildered Marcus Harris fell after the tea break clean bowled by Bumrah for 20 after not offering a shot.”Not my luckiest day but it’s okay. When you are able to put pressure somebody else will get a wicket. So, we wanted to do that. Sometimes you don’t bowl so well but still you get wickets. We have been bowling well and keeping the pressure from both ends. That was our aim today and hopefully we will be able to that tomorrow [Monday] morning as well,” he said.advertisementAustralia reached 132 for 4 at the close of play with Usman Khawaja 41 not out and captain Tim Paine unbeaten on 8.

Calgary explorers map out cave believed to be deepest in Canada

first_imgFERNIE, B.C. – A member of a team of explorers has reached a record depth in a cave near Fernie, B.C., that is believed to be the deepest in Canada.The cave has so far been measured at 5.3 kilometres in length and 670 metres deep — more than 200 storeys below the ground.Project leader Jeremy Bruns puts that in perspective by pointing out that the CN Tower in Toronto is just over 550 metres tall.The Calgary-led group began exploring the Mount Bisaro plateau in 2012 and has done roughly 10 expeditions.Team leader Katie Graham recently made it down to the 670-metre mark, but had to scuba dive through a channel to do it.Bruns says it’s fascinating that there is a lot of the plateau left to explore and the cave could go down as far as one kilometre.During expeditions, explorers are taken to the plateau by helicopter as it would be too gruelling to hike all their equipment up. They have endured harsh conditions: camping underground, enduring temperatures just above freezing and relying on headlamps in the complete darkness.“To get to this milestone is really exciting,” said Graham. “We know there’s a lot more cave there. This isn’t the end of it.”She said the explorers have experienced “twists and turns and gone down huge shafts that we never sort of imagined.”Her dive into the depths was “exciting, but short and very cold. You kind of left just wanting to see more.“That’s just going to tease me until I can get back there again.”(CHBZ, The Canadian Press)last_img read more

Police watchdog launches probe into Saskatchewan farm death RCMP investigation

first_imgOTTAWA – A police watchdog has launched a probe into the RCMP’s investigation into the shooting death of an Indigenous man on a Saskatchewan farm.The Civilian Review and Complaints Commission for the RCMP says it is looking into how the RCMP handled the death of 22-year-old Colten Boushie.Boushie, a member of the Red Pheasant First Nation, died in 2016 when the SUV he was in drove on to a farm near Biggar, Sask.Last month, a jury acquitted 56-year-old Gerald Stanley.Boushie’s family had been calling for a review of the RCMP investigation.Boushie’s mother has said that when RCMP came to notify her about her son’s death, officers were insensitive, started searching her home without permission and asked her if she’d been drinking.An internal RCMP investigation, done by a senior Indigenous officer, absolved the police force.The commission will also review and investigate the RCMP’s dismissal of the Boushie family’s initial public complaint.“In the course of our review and our ongoing monitoring of events related to this tragic incident, it has become apparent that additional matters related to the conduct of RCMP members involved need to be examined,” the commission’s acting chairperson, Guy Bujold, said in a release Tuesday.“As such, I am satisfied that it is in the public interest to launch an independent investigation into this matter.”last_img read more

Dead end millions of calls to government go unanswered AG finds

first_imgOTTAWA — Half of the 16 million Canadians trying to reach one of three government agencies by telephone are unable to speak to an agent.That’s one of the key findings of a new report from interim auditor general Sylvain Ricard, released today in Ottawa.The auditor general examined call centres at three departments that get a lot of telephone calls: the Immigration Department, Employment and Social Development Canada and Veterans Affairs.The audit found millions of calls are sent to an automated system and callers are sometimes told to go to a website or to call back later.For those who did get into queues for agents, more than a million gave up on waiting and hung up.And the auditor says the situation is unlikely to improve any time soon — a government strategy to modernize client services adopted in 2017 did not include call centres, even though more than 25 per cent of Canadians use the telephone to contact the government.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Rogers profits rise 15 per cent as smartphone upgrades fuel growth

Rogers profits rise 15 per cent as smartphone upgrades fuel growth TORONTO – Rogers Communications Inc. (TSX:RCI.B) delivered a 15 per cent profit increase in the first quarter, helped partly by more subscribers upgrading their smartphones while its television operations felt some pressure.Net income rose to $414 million from $360 million, the Toronto-based telecommunications company said in an earnings report issued after stock markets closed Monday.On an adjusted basis, earnings were 80 cents per share, beating expectations of 77 cents per share, according to a poll of analysts compiled by Thomson Reuters.Revenue increased to $3.03 billion from $2.94 billion. Analysts had estimated revenue of $3.06 billion for the period.In its wireless division, 32,000 postpaid subscribers signed up in the quarter compared with 47,000 a year earlier.Competition has been fierce in the wireless industry among Rogers, Bell (TSX:BCE), Telus (TSX:T) and new players like Wind Mobile, Mobilicity and Public Mobile.Rogers managed to come in with better results on ARPU, or average revenue per unit, an industry standard that calculates how much each subscriber is paying, said Troy Crandall, a tech analyst at MacDougall, MacDougall & MacTier. He said ARPU of $68.56 came in about $1 above his expectations.“If you have a smartphone you’re more apt to take a bigger-sized plan,” he said.Rogers president and CEO Nadir Mohamed called the results a “strong start” to the year, though there were signs of pressure in its cable results due to “aggressive pricing activity by our primary telco competitor.”Bell has been aggressively pushing its Bell Fibe TV product, which serves digital and high-definition channels through a fibre optic network, in major cities.Mohamed said the company is pushing to add subscribers “in the face of these extremely deep discounts as we work through this period.”Cable customers were down 87,000 from a year earlier, while the total has dropped 25,000 since end of the fourth quarter, the company said.On a revenue basis, wireless network results were up four per cent as were cable results, though they were partly offset by a four per cent drop in the media division due to “the continued impact of a soft advertising market” and a tapering off of the fallout from the NHL lockout.For its Internet division, subscribers grew by 26,000 to 1.9 million.Rogers is Canada’s largest cable TV and wireless operator, as well as TV and radio broadcaster and owner of the Toronto Blue Jays.It also owns a slate of print magazines including Maclean’s and Chatelaine.Shares of Rogers closed up 32 cents to $52.08 on the Toronto Stock Exchange before the earnings report was announced. by David Friend, The Canadian Press Posted Apr 22, 2013 4:17 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

UN watchdog examines 8 alleged gas attacks in Syria this year

first_imgA UN chemical weapons watchdog is examining allegations of eight toxic gas attacks in Syria since the beginning of this year, according to a report released Friday. The Syrian government has repeatedly denied using chemical weapons in the war that has killed 310,000 people since March 2011.The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons is tasked with investigating allegations of such attacks in Syria after the government joined the Chemical Weapons Convention in 2013.In a report to the Security Council, OPCW Director-General Ahmet Uzumcu said “eight incidents of alleged use of chemical weapons have been recorded since the beginning of 2017 and are currently being analyzed.”He did not specify where the latest attacks allegedly occurred.Fact-finding missions are already investigating incidents in eastern Aleppo city, western Rif Aleppo, South Homs and North Hama, Rif Damashq and Idlib, said the report sent to the council on Monday.Witnesses have been interviewed and the OPCW teams continue to gather evidence in those cases.The Syrian government has asked the OPCW to investigate four alleged chemical attacks in the area of Aleppo from September to November last year, the report added.In those cases, Russia has provided samples that have been sent to OPCW laboratories for analysis.After the OPCW said chlorine bombs had been dropped on at least three villages in Syria in 2014 and 2015, a UN-led investigation concluded that the Syrian air force was responsible for those attacks.Britain, France and the United States presented a draft Security Council resolution last week that would have imposed sanctions on those responsible for the chlorine attacks, but the measure was vetoed by Russia and China.The investigative panel also found that the Islamic State group was behind the use of mustard gas in an attack in 2015.Human Rights Watch has accused Syrian government forces of carrying out at least eight chemical attacks during the final weeks of the battle for Aleppo late last year, killing nine people and injuring hundreds more.OPCW experts are still waiting to inspect the Scientific Studies and Research Center, which oversees Syria’s chemical weapons program, after several scheduled inspections were delayed, the report said.The center, known by its acronym CERS, was on a proposed blacklist for UN sanctions that was scrapped by the Russian and Chinese double veto.last_img read more

Exploring the mysteries of blue

first_imgIt is said that life is an abstract art, and it is up to the artist to draw meanings out of it.For Sangeeta Gupta, who feels that art cannot thrive unless it is shared – it is a means to liberate herself through colours as her tools, invoking the infinite and the five elements as her source of inspiration.With the idea of sharing art with others, she recently opened an art gallery at Safdarjung Enclave, New Delhi under the ambit of Prithvi fine art and cultural centre – a registered society based in the heart of Delhi since 2011 with the objective to promote art, literature and music of India. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe gallery was inaugurated on July 14 India by Ambassador of Venezuela – Augusto Montiel, K L Ganju (Consul General for Republic of Union of the Comoros) and Ratan Kaul who marked their presence as the Chief Guest.Along with the inauguration there was also an opening of solo exhibition named as ‘NEEL – Mysteries of Blue’ by Sangeeta Gupta, whose art works will be on display until July 27.Many other senior artist including Niren Sengupta, Kanchan Chander, Ananda Moy Banerji, Sudip Roy, Siddharth Tagore and others also marked their presence at the inaugural. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveTalking about her outlook towards art she says, “To my inner self and elsewhere,nature is a phenomenon that creates and destroys time and space without a halt. As a painter, I have been composing shades of colours that dissolve nature into forms and formlessness and subsequently enter the region of nothingness. One may not be endowed with the knowledge of how to go beyond this experience.””It begins suddenly at an empty space, generates energy, goes on clubbing with opposite forces and finally passes beyond time. I have attempted to identify space at every nook and corner of the landscape, discovering and rediscovering the infinite existence of nothingness. My urge to conceive the truth of our time drives me sometimes to probe the elusive realms of human existence,” she adds.The artist, who is a resident of Delhi, has held 32 solo shows, authored 14 books and made seven documentary films.last_img read more

Strong waves blamed in drowning of 2 Canadian tourists in Costa Rica

first_imgRelated posts:Big waves expected this weekend on Costa Rica’s northern Pacific coast Experts extend alert for strong waves in Costa Rica’s northern Pacific, Caribbean through Sunday Oceanographers forecast strong waves, rip tides along Costa Rica’s Pacific shores starting Thursday US Coast Guard to assist in investigation of deadly catamaran accident Update, 9:06 p.m., Jan. 26: A reader on our Facebook profile disputed the Red Cross’ initial suspicions that strong waves or a rip current may be to blame for the drownings. While the Red Cross investigation is ongoing, the reader, who said he was at the scene Monday, said ocean conditions were normal, and the accident likely could be blamed on a lack of lifeguards at the beach, an ongoing concern at many beaches in Costa Rica.Original story continues here:Two Canadian tourists identified by the Red Cross in Puntarenas as Andrea Bell, 70, and 2-year-old Jasmine Rodríguez Olching drowned on Monday afternoon at Playa Hermosa, a northern Pacific beach in Cóbano, on Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula.According to the Red Cross, an emergency call at 1:43 p.m. reported the young child was being pulled out to sea. Paramedics arriving at the scene found both victims out of the water with no vital signs. Crew members of a private emergency service unsuccessfully performed CPR on both victims.Bell was pronounced dead at the scene, and Rodríguez was rushed to a nearby hospital in Cóbano, where she died minutes after arrival, Red Cross official Christian Castro said.Pending an investigation, officials initially suspect that strong and high waves that have been pounding the northern Pacific shores since the weekend likely contributed to the deaths.Experts from the University of Costa Rica’s Center for Research in Ocean Sciences and Limnology (CIMAR) last Friday warned that strong winds coming from the northeast would create strong waves at several coastal areas, particularly in the northern Pacific, and conditions were expected to intensify on Monday.CIMAR experts urge beachgoers this week to take precautions against powerful waves and rip currents, which are being reported at several beaches along the Pacific.

Atelier Hapax, by revisiting ancient weaving, embroidery and origami techniques, completely transforms La Maison’s finished packaging products into objects with an entirely different design and function.During the month of October 2012, La Maison du Chocolat will hand over the design of their window displays to Atelier Hapax in 11 of their boutiques worldwide: François 1er, La Madeleine and Faubourg Saint‑Honoré in Paris, Piccadilly in London, Rockefeller Center in New York, Marunouchi in Tokyo and all the boutiques in Hong Kong. There will be two designs elegantly reinterpreting new uses for the signature ribbons and coffrets.During this period, an exquisite collection of Atelier Hapax products exclusively made for La Maison du Chocolat will be available for purchase in participating boutiques in five countries, including New York’s Rockefeller Center. As an ode to the delicate variations in the tastes and sensibilities of every customer, each piece is numbered and unique. These pieces will include small ribbon pouches, sculptural lamps, belts and handbags, among others.La Maison du Chocolat will participate in the second edition of Paris Design Week, an exhibition dedicated to innovation and design, which will be open to the public from September 10 through 16. During which, Atelier Hapax will unveil their vision of chocolate with creations for La Maison and host demonstrations in the boutique on rue François 1er in Paris. www.lamaisonduchocolat.comlast_img read more
