As always last but not the least, Honda has launched their compact SUV BR-V for the domestic car market. The prices for the BR-V start at Rs 8.75 lakh and the top-of-the-line trim will cost Rs 12.9 lakh . Pre-bookings for the car were already underway and deliveries of the BR-V will commence after the launch. The Honda BR-V will be launched in both petrol and diesel variants and will be offered with the same 1.5-litre petrol and diesel mills that do duty on the City. The petrol motor has been tuned to put out 117 bhp and 145Nm of torque, while the diesel will produce 98 bhp and 200Nm of torque. Both the engines will be offered with a new six-speed transmission but the option of CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) is only available with the petrol motor. The BR-V shares its under-pinning’s with the Brio, Amaze and the discontinued Mobilio and measures 4,455 mm in length, 1,735 mm in width, 1,650 mm in height. The wheelbase is 2,660 mm long, 10 mm longer than the Mobilio. The amazing 210 mm ground clearance will give the BR-V go-anywhere capabilities. Also Read: Honda BR-V First Drive Review: Here’s what we thought of it The BR-V features Honda’s ‘Active Solid Motion’ design philosophy. It sports a huge chrome-slat grille at the front and sleek projector headlamps that remind you of the City. The wheel arches are lined with black plastic body cladding which enhance the SUV looks of the car. A strong shoulder line is present all the way up to the rear door, where a second shoulder line takes its place and goes back till the tail lamps. A mix of sharp lines and curves lend balance to the design of the BR-V. The tail lamp at the rear is a single unit and it makes the BR-V look wider than it’s actually. A huge chrome slat, that compliments the one at the front, is also present right above the number plate.advertisement The Honda BR-V gets the usual in terms of features, i.e. automatic climate control, bluetooth telephony and audio streaming, LED DRLs and keyless entry. One major feature the BR-V misses out on is a touch screen, even in the top-of-the-line variant. The infotainment system might support all types of input (Aux, USB and Bluetooth), but the absence of a touch screen will affect its usability. Also this means that the BR-V will not come with navigation features.

The Duster was the creator of this segment, and enjoyed quite a bit of time at the top, but the launch of the Hyundai Creta has seen the Duster pushed of the top of the list. The Honda BR-V will surely stir the pot and its seven people capacity could definitely excite potential buyers but in this day and age, a lack of features could go against BR-V.PricesVariant Price (Rs) E i-VTEC 8.75 lakh S i-VTEC 9.9 lakh V i-VTEC 10.9 lakh V i-VTEC CVT 11.99 lakh VX i-VTEC 11.84 lakh E i-DTEC 9.9 lakh S i-DTEC 10.9 lakh V i-DTEC 11.85 lakh VX i-DTEC 12.9 lakh All prices are Ex-showroom, Delhi.Also See: This is what the production model of Honda BR-V looks like Also Read: Five things to know about Honda BR-V before its launch

Jorge Sampaoli enjoyed a perfect start to his Argentina reign with a 1-0 friendly win over Brazil on Friday, ending opposing coach Tite’s honeymoon in front of a mammoth crowd at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.Sampaoli unveiled a new front three in the ‘Superclasico’ Down Under, with Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain forming a formidable attacking triumvirate alongside talisman Lionel Messi.But it was a Gabriel Mercado strike on the verge of halftime and a profligate Brazil attack that proved decisive, ending Tite’s perfect record of nine successive wins dating back to September.With Neymar and a host of top players skipping the tour, Brazil missed a number of second half chances, leaving Sampaoli grateful for the win in front of more than 95,000 spectators.”We knew it would be complicated because we were trying to set up a team for the future,” the former Chile manager told reporters through a translator.”I can’t really tell you that we’ve consolidated a team. This consolidation will take time. I would be lying if I told you everything went to plan but we’ve got the idea and we are beginning this journey.”Tite’s night was soured when forward Gabriel Jesus was taken off the field on a stretcher in stoppage time after suffering a knock to the face from his Manchester City teammate Nicolas Otamendi.”He had an injury, had a problem on his face, so he just went to hospital and we are waiting to see what happened to him,” Tite told reporters.advertisementIt was a dramatic end to an eventful night for the 20-year-old talent, who missed an open goal in a comical phase of play in the second half.Latching onto a sumptuous through-ball, Jesus rounded the keeper but his low shot struck the left goalpost.The deflection found teammate Ever Banega but the midfielder then blasted his shot straight into the right post.Argentina was dominant in the opening half, with Angel Di Maria a constant menace down the left flank.Messi was more subdued but placed a deft free kick onto the head of Gonzalo Higuain in one of the early chances.Dybala later sent another missile whistling past the left goalpost, leaving Sampaoli cursing.The 57-year-old coach was eventually relieved when Otamendi headed a Di Maria cross into the right goalpost and Mercado hammered in the winner from a metre out.Argentina play Singapore next week in the city state, with Brazil remaining in Melbourne to take on hosts Australia at the MCG on Tuesday.
\RFormer FIFA boss Blatter revels in visit to Putin Moscow, Jun 21 (AP) Sepp Blatter came to Moscow and saw Vladimir Putin at the Kremlin, defying FIFA’s wish that its suspended former president’s visit to the World Cup would attract little attention. Blatter says he went to see Russia’s president after watching Portugal’s 1-0 win over Morocco in Moscow on Wednesday – wearing the laminate fan ID card required for all people attending World Cup games in Russia. “We had small talks,” Blatter, who converses with Putin in German, told reporters today. “We spoke about football and the good start of the competition, the good start of the team.” The 82-year-old Blatter is serving a six-year ban from official football duties for financial misconduct during this 17-year rule. The terms of the ban, which runs until October 2021, meant Blatter was kept separate from is successor Gianni Infantino and other football officials at Luzhniki Stadium. Fulfilling a long-standing personal invitation from Putin to attend the World Cup, Blatter will travel to St. Petersburg to see Brazil play Costa Rica on Friday. Blatter said it was “respectful” to be invited to the Kremlin despite being suspended from football. He was escorted to the presidential home by his former FIFA executive committee colleague Vitaly Mutko, who is a deputy prime minister. “I think it is a respectful activity and I was happy to meet him (Putin) in the Kremlin,” he said. Blatter was FIFA president from 1998 until being suspended from office in October 2015 in the fallout from U.S. and Swiss federal investigations of international football officials.advertisement Blatter’s presence in Russia is awkward and a little embarrassing for sport’s new leadership trying to rebuild its reputation after corruption-scarred years. Most of the executive committee members who took part in a December 2010 vote to pick Russia and Qatar as future World Cup votes have been investigated or suspended by FIFA’s ethics committee, or indicted by the U.S. Department of Justice. Blatter, however, suggested FIFA was not troubled by his five-day visit – his first public appearance outside Switzerland since a July 2015 trip to St. Petersburg for the World Cup qualifying draw. “The president of FIFA was informed personally by the president of the state here that he invites me. And he has said ‘OK, nothing.’ So I don’t think they are bothered,” he said. However, Blatter joked about his relationship with Infantino, who is from a neighboring town in the same Swiss region. “I have a very special relationship with Gianni Infantino,” he said, ” it means we don’t speak!” Blatter was hosted Wednesday by Russian World Cup organizers and watched from a hospitality suite as Cristiano Ronaldo scored the winning goal. “It is good to be a fan,” Blatter said before posing for photographs with the laminated Fan ID card. Blatter has had health scares since leaving office and clearly thrived on the attention from international media and fans in Moscow. “I was in a shower of people because they have recognized I was once the president of FIFA,” he said. “To live these emotions for me was good, to say, ‘He is still alive.” And here I am.” Staying in a five-star hotel in central Moscow, Blatter was greeted warmly after his media interviews in the reception area by former Netherlands international Clarence Seedorf. FIFA has declined comment on details of Blatter’s visit, saying it took note of his arrival. (AP) AHAH
CHARLOTTE, NC – DECEMBER 02: Kelly Bryant #2 of the Clemson Tigers reacts after a touchdown against the Miami Hurricanes in the third quarter during the ACC Football Championship at Bank of America Stadium on December 2, 2017 in Charlotte, North Carolina. (Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant announced his decision to transfer earlier today. Bryant will redshirt this season and be immediately eligible elsewhere as a graduate transfer in 2019.He should have no shortage of programs interested in him. Bryant has started the last 18 games for the Tigers and has led a team to the ACC title and the College Football Playoff.Trevor Lawrence might have the higher ceiling and be the better play for Clemson right now, but Bryant is a capable FBS quarterback.Tanner Nestle of BadgerofHonor has proposed the possibility of Bryant enrolling at Wisconsin. While Nestle acknowledges that current starter Alex Hornibrook will be back next year and highly-rated recruit Graham Mertz will be arriving, he cites Bryant’s skill set as a major reason the Badgers should be interested.Bryant is a true dual-threat quarterback. Last year he threw for only 2,802 yards and 13 touchdowns, but he ran for 665 yards and 11 more scores on the ground. He’s not a bad passer though. Last season he completed over 65% of his passes and so far this year he has completed 66%.With Wisconsin’s history of playing great defense and being able to run the ball effectively, it seems like it’s always just a strong quarterback away from competing for a national title. The closest the Badgers have come to such glory was with Russell Wilson in 2011 and Alex Hornibrook last year.In our opinion, Bryant and Wisconsin doesn’t seem like a natural fit. Hornibrook is in his third season as a starter and has improved each year. Bryant is good and his legs would add a different dimension to the Badgers’ offense, but are we sure he’d win the job?More than likely, Bryant will head to a program that has a clear opening at the QB position. He’s clearly looking to maximize his playing time in his final collegiate season.Which program proves to be the best fit remains to be seen.
Pictou County residents will have improvements to water, wastewater and road infrastructure through an investment of $3.09 million by federal, provincial and municipal governments. Peter MacKay, federal Minister of Justice and Attorney General, Cumberland North MLA Terry Farrell, on behalf of Service Nova Scotia and Municipal Relations Minister Mark Furey, Glen MacKinnon, Mayor Town of Trenton, and Joe Hawes, Mayor Town of Pictou, announced funding for three projects today, Dec. 7. Upgrades will be made to water utilities in the Town of Pictou, including refurbishing the water tower, replacing the distribution line, and other drinking-water related infrastructure. In Trenton, about 565 metres of combined sewers will be separated, and about nine kilometres of Highway 348 in Pictou County, from Blue Acres to Springville/Churchville line, will be repaved. “The government is proud to contribute to the joint $2.75-million investment provided through the Provincial-Territorial Base Fund for these three important infrastructure initiatives in Nova Scotia,” said Mr. MacKay. “This once again shows our commitment to help ensure Canadian communities remain among the best in the world to live.” “The province recognizes the value of investing in infrastructure projects to improve the quality of life for our residents,” said Mr. Farrell. “Nova Scotia is pleased to work with the federal and municipal governments to create healthier and safer communities.” The three projects will receive $2.75 million in joint funding from the provincial and federal governments and an additional $342,000 from the towns of Trenton and Pictou for the sewer separation and the water utility upgrades. “Infrastructure is the biggest concern for small communities today. This support by our federal and provincial counterparts is essential to our sustainability,” said Mr. MacKinnon. “The Town of Trenton is very appreciative of the continued support from our federal and provincial partners. This is a very good day for our town as we continue phase two of our storm sewer separation plan.” The funding being announced today plays a significant part in the Town of Pictou’s plan for drinking water infrastructure upgrades. “This investment will go a long way to completing phase one and Pictou looks forward to a continued partnership with the federal and provincial governments to see the project through to completion,” said Mr. Hawes. “On behalf of our residents, I would like to thank the federal and provincial representatives for their continued interest and support for this important part of public infrastructure.”
VICTORIA – Revenues have declined by $3.5 billion at British Columbia’s public power utility but consumers won’t be zapped with rate hikes beyond what was originally forecasted.BC Hydro CEO Jessica McDonald says the Crown corporation has instead embarked on a utility-wide cost-cutting program to stick to its 10-year rate plan announced almost three years ago.B.C.’s electricity rate hikes increased four per cent in April and are slated to increase at three and 1/2 per cent and three per cent over the next two years.McDonald says warm winters and a decrease in commodity prices in B.C.’s resource industries are largely to blame for the revenue declines.Opposition New Democrat energy critic Adrian Dix says Hydro’s debts are increasing and now amount to $3,000 for every British Columbian.McDonald says this year’s four per cent rate increase averages at $4.65 extra each month for a family of four living in a single-family detached home. by The Canadian Press Posted Jul 28, 2016 5:18 pm MDT Last Updated Jul 28, 2016 at 6:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email BC Hydro CEO mounts cost-cutting effort to cover $3.5 B in revenue declines
photos by Jeff Barrett By Loren Miller, USU Eastern Sports InformationIn their final home series of the season, the Utah State Eastern softball team was swept by the #8 Salt Lake Community College Bruins on Friday and Saturday.In game one, the Eagles held the high-powered Bruin offense to six runs, four runs below the Bruins’ average per game. Unfortunately, the Eagles could only come up with one run in game one when sophomore McKenzie Dorney hit an RBI single in the bottom of the sixth. USU Eastern sophomore Carlye Levy gave up 10 hits and six runs in the circle for the Eagles.In game two, the Eagles struggled defensively and lost 16-3.After taking a 1-0 lead in the first inning, Salt Lake’s offense exploded in the second and produced six runs. Salt Lake added eight more runs in the fourth inning with the help of a grand slam and a two-run home run. Sophomores Ashley Sweat and Jaiden Smith each had a hit and an RBI in game two to lead the team.With Friday’s doubleheader sweep in the rearview mirror, the Eagles battled the Bruins in game three Saturday but came up short in the seventh inning and fell 9-7.The Eagles trailed most of game three until the bottom of the sixth when the bats finally came alive. Trailing 4-1, a Taylor Passarella ground out with a runner at third made it a 4-2 game. Sophomore Rilee Stookey scored Passarella on an RBI triple to cut the lead to one.A few at-bats later, the Eagles took a 6-4 lead after a Smith three-run home run. Salt Lake came back in the top of the seventh with five runs of their own to take a 9-6 lead. In the bottom of the seventh, the Eagles tried to force extra innings but fell short with only scoring one more run off a solo home run from Avery Blackhurst.“SLCC is the number one team and we knew it wasn’t going to be easy going in, but they still showed some fight even when they were down,” said USU Eastern softball coach Mary Hart.In the final game of the series, the Eagles were shut down by SLCC’s pitcher Tarni Stepto, who threw a no-hitter with 13 strikeouts and two walks. On offense, the Bruins put up nine runs to end the game in five innings with a score of 9-0.The four losses against the Bruins puts the Eagles at 12-27 overall and 10-17 in conference play.“I think even though we did lose, we had some good plays against a very strong team. They never really gave up they kept trying and I think that’s something that’s going to keep us going,” said Hart.With two more road series left on the schedule, one in Henderson and one in Twin Falls, Hart believes the team can get better and be ready for the conference tournament in May.“I think if we keep playing like we have been, we should finish the season of strong and do well come tournament,” said Hart.The Eagles will travel to Henderson next for a four-game series against the College of Southern Nevada. CSN is currently two games ahead of the Eagles in the loss column, making the series critical for conference tournament seeding. All four games in Henderson will be broadcast on the Scenic West Digital Network at scenicwestnetwork.com.

Renu DesaiInstagram/renuudesaiActress-turned-TV host Renu Desai, the ex-wife of power star Pawan Kalyan, has heavily come down heavily on a netizen after he used the F-word in his comment on her show Annadatha Sukhibhava.Recently, Renu Desai announced that she is set to return to small screen with Annadatha Sukhibhava, which will about the problems and welfare of the farmer community. Talking about it, she wrote on her Instagram page, “In our life, majority of the time we do work for money or mostly as a responsibility. With this TV show I am getting to do work which makes my soul happy.”Renu Desai added, “Getting to talk to farmers, getting to interact with them, know their problems first hand and then try my best to come up with a solution, is truly something I feel that I am honoured to do. Our farmers deserve our respect and all possible help from the government and us citizens too.”Responding to her, a netizen blasted Redu Desai, saying that she is fit for acting only. He wrote, “Lol. I am a son of Farmer and I personally did farming for about 2 Decades. What F**k are you guys doing for Farmers? Nothing!! Just doing make-up and doing drama in front of the camera for little money.”Renu Desai was left red-faced over the use of the F-word. In Telugu, she wrote that everyone trolls celebrity, using this word, nobody cares about this abuse. She asked, “Whether a Celebrity has to bear the harassment silently? Only a Common person has feelings and sentiments. A Celebrity not?The Neethoney Dance hoped that the trollers will realize their mistake one day.

Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge arrive to attend the EE British Academy Film Awards at Royal Albert Hall.Getty imagesBeing a Royal may not be as easy as it seems. Even if Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton make it look effortless, a lot of effort seems to go into Royal duties.And apparently, Kate Middleton would risk going insane in the “goldfish bowl of the Royal Family” if she did not have one particular thing keeping her of sound mind, a throwback documentary claims. Being the Duchess of Cambridge come with its own scrutiny and after a while, it can take its toll on a person’s mental health.According to 2018 documentary “Meghan and Harry: The First 100 days”, things must get overwhelming for Kate at times, but there is one particular thing that is keeping her of sound mind. Royal author Duncan Larcombe claimed that the Duchess of Cambridge’s “motherhood role” is what is helping her remain “sane in the goldfish bowl of the Royal Family.” Meghan MarkleGetty ImagesChildren are usually the reason mothers go crazy after a while, but it seems that Kate Middleton’s supposed tenuous grasp on sanity is thanks to her children. Maybe Meghan Markle too will come to rely on her baby. Meghan Markle is due to give birth in April. Preparations are being made for the arrival of the baby Royal. Maybe Kate Middleton as a new aunt can give pointers to Meghan Markle, because at the end of the day, feud or not, they are family. Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle may very well call a truce and tend to the children along with their other Royal duties. We have to say that if Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle do decide to play nice, it will indeed make the Royal Palace a much more sane environment.
Congress President Rahul Gandhi files his nomination for his second seat of Wayanad for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections in Wayanad, Kerala on April 4, 2019. Also seen Congress General Secretary (Uttar Pradesh East) Priyanka Gandhi.IANSTwo days after Kerala went to the polls to elect 20 Lok Sabha members, a leader of the state’s ruling CPI-M on Thursday alleged that there was an “unholy alliance” between the BJP and the Congress and they engaged in trading of votes. Kerala recorded 77.68 per cent polling, up from 74.02 per cent in 2014.Kozhikode district Communist Party of India-Marxist secretary P. Mohanan told the media that in constituencies like Kannur, Kozhikode and Vadakara, this “unholy alliance” took place to defeat the CPI-M. “In Kozhikode and Vadakara, the BJP has traded its votes to the Congress candidates and in these areas, the yesteryear’s ‘secret alliance CO-LE-B’ (Congress, Indian Union Muslim League and the BJP) was very active. In several places in these constituencies, both the BJP and Congress workers were hand in glove. The feature of this trading was evident in constituencies where, the BJP fielded weak candidates,” he said.The CPI-M also suspects that “vote leaks” have taken place in Kollam and Attingal constituencies. Intelligence reports have now surfaced which has predicted that the candidates of the CPI-M led-Left Front Democrat candidates have not been able to put in a good performance. The CPI-M has an internal mechanism of analyzing the pattern of voting soon after polling ends and the top brass of the party is meeting here on Friday to take a final stock of the polling, when more details of this “vote-trading” are expected to come out.State Congress chief Mullapally Ramachandran, however, slammed the CPI-M’s allegations and said that he will leave politics if it proves that there was a secret deal between his party and the BJP. “Who does not know that it was Vijayan who acted between the RSS and the CPI-M. If the CPI-M proves the involvement of the Congress in any such unholy alliance, I will end my public life,” he said.K. Surendran, the BJP candidate at Pathanamthitta constituency (where the Sabarimala temple is located), told that the CPI-M need not worry about BJP votes. “What the CPI-M should be worried is that when votes are counted, they should be able to answer about their missing votes,” said Surendran, who expects his victory.A meeting of the RSS leaders at Kochi on Thursday has concluded that the BJP candidates will win Thiruvananthapuram and Pathanamthitta. “Lot of new voters have voted and this shows that they want a change… I am confident that I will win,” said Kummanem Rajasekheran, the BJP candidate who took on Congress leader Shashi Tharoor, who is aiming for a hat trick in the Thiruvananthapuram constituency.
By Joi Thomas, Special to the AFROApril 19th is an important day on the Christian calendar. It is observed as Good Friday; the day Jesus Christ was crucified. Many churches in our area will observe this day with what is known as a Seven Last Words service. While Jesus hung on the cross, He uttered Seven sayings or Seven last words. Often seven preachers preach one word each in this type of service. This year, New Shiloh Baptist Church will hold their 50th Seven Last Words service. It is sure to be a monumental event.Dr. Harold Carter, Jr, Pastor of New Shiloh shared a little about how the service began for the church 50 years ago. “Other than a desire on my father’s part, the late Dr. Harold A. Carter, Sr., to bring area churches and pastors together on Good Friday, in 1969, I’m not privy to any more historical precipitous for the service. The service originated with the following pastors/ proclaimers: Pastor Darneal Johnson Sr., Pastor (Bishop) Clifford Johnson, Pastor Olin P. Moyd, Pastor Samuel Ray, Pastor Edgar Reid, Pastor (Bishop) Winfield Showell, and Pastor A.C.D. Vaughn,” said Carter. “Of the original seven, only Dr. A.C.D. Vaughn is with us, on this side of life. We are so delighted that God has kept him to be a part of this 50th year observance.”Over the past 50 years, theSeven Last Words service at New Shiloh has grown and matured. Many great men and women have stood in this service to proclaim the Seven Last Words. “The service has providentially evolved primarily due to the home goings of participating pastors, over the years. Also, whereas all of the original pastors were local, now some of them are from outside of our city/state. Another change has been the home going of the original host pastor, Dr. Harold Carter, Sr. Of course, even after 5 years, his impact and presence aremissed,” Carter said.This year’s service is shaping up to be a real blessing for all who attend. Many of the Pastors preaching have been involved in past seven last words services over the years. “Inasmuch as this is the 50th year anniversary, I really didn’t want to drastically abrupt the usual line-up, but I did feel led to reach out to two pastors hoping they would help us honor the occasion. One is Bishop Walter Thomas, who has consented to return after a number of years. The other was to have been the now, late Dr. Charles Booth. Both Bishop Thomas and Dr. Booth were tremendously impacted by my father’s ministry and that of the New Shiloh Baptist Church,” Carter said. “Obviously, we are deeply saddened by the passing of Dr. Booth who had never participated in New Shiloh’s service and was going to be a surprise participant for this year. In addition to the aforementioned, this year we have invited Grammy-nominated Bishop Cortez Vaughn of Kansas City, Kansas as our guest psalmist.”Dr. Daniel Carter, assistant to the pastor informs us that preparation for this service begins months before Good Friday. “Typically, preparation begins in February, confirming participants and assigning what “word” they will preach. Similarly, the Music Ministry will come together, our Saturday Church School’s Drama Ministry does a pre-service production (for the past seven years) which requires rehearsals, etc.” After this years service the Men’s Ministry will host a fish dinner. People will be able to purchase dinner for take-out for $15.00 or a fish sandwich for $8.00.New Shiloh is excited about this milestone in their church history and invite all to attend. New Shiloh Baptist Church is located at 2100 N. Monroe Street in Northwest Baltimore. Sunday Worship Service times are 8:30am and 11:00am. Daily prayer is held each and every morning at 6:00 AM.
