Playing Muttiah Muralitharan on debut was an unforgettable experience: Venugopal Rao

first_imgFormer Indian batsman Venugopal Rao believes it was an unforgettable experience for him on his debut to face spin legend Muttiah Muralitharan.On Tuesday, Rao announced his retirement from all forms of cricket.The former middle-order batsman had made his international debut against Sri Lanka at Dambulla on July 30, 2005, a game which the hosts won by three wickets.Batting first, India had scored 205 runs out of which debutant Rao had scored 38 off 74 balls. Sri Lanka chased down the target with 10 balls to spare and took a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.”Playing Muttiah Muralitharan on debut was an unforgettable experience,” Rao told ESPNcricinfo. “As batsmen, we grew up playing spin, but I felt nothing quite prepared you to face him. He was an exceptional bowler. I have fond memories of that game (even though India lost).”He represented India in 16 ODIs, the last of which came in May 2006 against West Indies at Basseterre.The 37-year-old, during his two-decade long career which effectively ended in 2017, had earned praise from then coach Greg Chappell and batted alongside legendary Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar.”Ahead of my India debut, I was a little nervous. Many thoughts ran through my mind. Greg had just taken up as coach, and he told me ‘Look, for me, where you come from doesn’t matter. I know you are good enough to be here, and that is why you are here.’ Those words gave me a lot of belief,” Rao said.Rao, who holds the distinction of being India’s first super-sub, also recalled how people in early 1990s used to laugh whenever a cricketer from Andhra had a desire to play for the national team.advertisement”In the early 1990s, they used to laugh whenever someone from Andhra desired to play for India. To be one of only two cricketers from the region (MSK Prasad being the other) to play for the country proved that you can achieve your goal,” he said.”To come from a fishing village near Visakhapatnam, where my father worked for a modest salary of Rs 7,000 to support five children, and playing was a big thing. All credit to my parents,” he added.He played 121 first-class matches scoring 7,081 runs, which included 17 hundreds and 30 fifties. He also played 65 IPL matches for Deccan Chargers, Delhi Daredevils and Sunrisers Hyderabad between 2008 and 2014.last_img

Schools Receive Funding For Gaeliclanguage Instruction

first_img Rankin School of the Narrows, Iona, $3,625; Mira Road Elementary, Sydney, $10,250; St. Andrew Junior School, Antigonish, $27,500; St. Andrew Consolidated, St. Andrews, $30,000; Inverness Education Centre/Academy, Inverness, $13,200; Citadel High School, Halifax, $23,630; Melissa Shaw, an English teacher who is heading Citadel’s Gaelic Cultural Awareness Project, says interest in studying Gaelic is high among students at the city’s newest high school. “So many of our students come from a background where, only two generations ago, Gaelic was the first language, so it is really important that we validate the language and the culture in our schools,” she said. “It’s exciting that we may be able to do this.” Gaelic is considered one of the world’s top nine languages in danger of disappearing. In Nova Scotia, there are fewer than 500 native speakers. The province once boasted as many as 100,000, the largest population of Gaelic speakers outside Scotland. “The Gaelic language is at a critical stage in its evolution in Nova Scotia,” said Angus MacIsaac, Minister for the Office of Gaelic Affairs. “It is important that we preserve and maintain Gaelic in Nova Scotia.” Close to 1,500 public school, adult and college students are estimated to be studying Gaelic in Nova Scotia. The language is offered in the public school system in grades 3 through 12. The Department of Education recently developed curricula for Gaelic 10, 11 and 12 and, this year, will begin developing curriculum for elementary and junior high schools. This year, the department will be target $200,000 in Gaelic program grants, which are intended to provide students with an introductory-level experience in the language. Applications for additional projects for the winter and fall of 2007-08 are now being accepted. Deadline for applications is Nov. 1. More Nova Scotia students will have the opportunity to study the Gaelic language thanks to program grants provided by the Department of Education. Six schools have received $108,000 in funding to hire Gaelic language teachers, provide professional development opportunities and to purchase teaching and learning resources. The program grants range from $3,625 to $30,000. “The study of the Gaelic language and culture gives students a wonderful opportunity to develop a greater appreciation for Nova Scotia’s diverse heritage,” said Education Minister Karen Casey. “Students deserve an opportunity to learn one of this province’s ancestral languages.” Schools receiving grants are:last_img

A terrible decision

first_imgThere is a whole host of implications and reasons to criticise the Central government’s move to ban civilian traffic movement on the nearly 300 km-stretch from Udhampur to Baramulla districts of National Highway 44 in Kashmir from 4 am to 5 pm every Sunday and Wednesday till May 31. A massive contingent of forces in small units have been deployed along the highway to enforce the ban. This decision is explained to be with the purpose of facilitating the movement of army and paramilitary convoys (they could have been airlifted) into Kashmir valley so as to ensure smooth conduct of the approaching general elections. This highway is the only stretch of road that connects Kashmir valley to mainland India. Naturally, this leads to significant disruption in the life of a common Kashmiri and also of every other civilian that would travel on that road. The plight of the local people is more serious as it covers a range of genuine situations such as medical patients, school children, traders and business owners, farmers and horticulturists, regular employees and even drivers of public transport. Also Read – A compounding difficulty Even before this highway ban draws criticism regarding its various impacts (which have already started to show since Sunday), a more legitimate and obvious question that must be raised is that why is there just one real connecting channel to India’s most strategic location. Kashmir is not a region to quarantine for its volatility for which successive Union governments have been responsible. As resolution of a dispute can have more than one ways, a territory can be brought closer by more ways than one. It stands obvious and emphasised that capitalising a situation for the gain of predominant politics takes a heavy toll on the common man. Apart from the disruption of day-to-day life of the common civilian, the economic impact of this ill-thought and senseless order on the region at large is a serious one. Kashmir was in the process of recovering from the losses from prolonged shut-down during the uprising following militant Burhan Wani’s elimination in July 2016 , and the massive floods that ravaged the region in September 2014. As trade will suffer massively, the regional economy is bound to take a hit in this election-centric politics. This short-term preventive measure will only add to the long-term detriment the Indian state has fomented in Kashmir.last_img

Voiths new TurboGuide simplifies management of fluid couplings

first_imgWhether assembly instructions, information about nominal fill volumes, tutorials for fill level checks, or scheduling overviews for maintenance planning – the TurboGuide online platform developed by Voith the company says simplifies management and operation of fluid couplings. The online tool offers a central database from which all important information and technical data regarding a coupling can be accessed anywhere and anytime.“Thanks to their hydrodynamic operating principle, fluid couplings from Voith have been keeping drive systems for mining and raw materials processing operations safe from damage for many years and have minimised costly production downtimes. So that customers can always rely on the functionality of their fluid coupling, Voith has developed the online-based TurboGuide platform. This new online tool makes it possible to precisely schedule upcoming maintenance work. Unscheduled downtimes are thus substantially reduced and scheduled downtimes significantly shortened.”Apart from basic data such as serial number, size, type, and fill volume of the coupling, TurboGuide also offers the option to safely document and access drive-related data such as output, speed, installation location and date of commissioning. The tool uses this information to calculate the current technical condition of the coupling and displays it by means of a traffic light system in green, yellow and red. This means that it is easier for service and maintenance personnel to schedule the next maintenance appointment and they can effortlessly initiate the necessary steps at an early stage. To ensure that maintenance work is always carried out in time, TurboGuide also features a notification function that sends out an automated email as a reminder for upcoming appointments.“But TurboGuide is more than just a tool to increase the efficiency of maintenance work. The platform offers users comprehensive support in managing their fluid couplings, especially if the application location changes. In this case, the integrated ‘filling generator’ helps the user to calculate the required fluid volume. After entering the new operating parameters, such as a change in engine output, the software calculates the corresponding fill volume with just one click and saves it in the database.”TurboGuide also offers support for topping up hydrodynamic couplings with constant fill: Using well illustrated tutorials, the system explains how the topping up process works, what should be taken into consideration, and how to check the fill volume. Installation quick guides, manuals, additional animations, and tips for the efficient operation of the coupling complete the service section of the platform.“In addition, TurboGuide is a website where all important information regarding the coupling is documented and constantly updated. It makes this data available to the user anywhere and anytime. Complicated and time consuming searches through files are now a thing of the past.”“The initial registration of a new fluid coupling is extremely simple and self-explanatory: Each newly delivered fluid coupling is marked with a unique QR code. If the registered user scans in this code with their mobile device, the coupling automatically appears in the dashboard of TurboGuide. Even without a QR code, already commissioned couplings can be registered using their serial number, size, and type.”last_img

James Bennet Departs The Atlantic

first_img In a staff memo this morning, Bradley wrote to employees, “It is true that it took 100 interviews for me to find James Bennet. What I really found was not one in a hundred, but one in a million. James Bennet recovered The Atlantic. More personal, James Bennet recovered my ownership of The Atlantic.” One week after Atlantic Media named COO Michael Finnegan its first president since 2013, the company has announced another leadership change. Bennet, 49, previously served as Jerusalem bureau chief and White House correspondent, among other positions, at the New York Times before joining Atlantic Media in 2006. “Under James’s decade of leadership, The Atlantic has reinvented itself for the modern media age,” said Cohn in a statement. “He safeguarded the future of our 159-year-old magazine by insisting we express its mission and heritage in the most contemporary ways, on any and (almost) all platforms that our audience uses.” Bennet returns to the New York Times after spending ten years Atlantic Media, where he is largely credited with ushering the 159-year-old flagship brand into the digital age. The magazine’s website, TheAtlantic.com, reached a high of more than 31.5 million unique monthly visitors at the end of 2015, according to the company, shattering its own records. Last month, The Atlantic was named Magazine of the Year at the 2016 National Magazine Awards for Print and Digital Media. Bob Cohn, who has served as co-president of The Atlantic alongside Bennet for the past two years, will take over as sole president while the company seeks a new editor-in-chief for its flagship magazine. James Bennet, president and editor-in-chief of The Atlantic, will leave the company to take over as editorial page director for the New York Times, Atlantic Media chairman David Bradley announced today.last_img

5 bidders finalised for Lafarges India cement business

first_imgFive bidders, including three Indian and two foreign players, have been finalised as contenders who will bid for Lafarge’s entire India operations, which has a total capacity of 11 million tonne per annum (mtpa). The five firms are Ajay Piramal group, Nirma, Sajjan Jindal’s JSW Cement, Mexico’s Cemex and China’s Anhui Conch Cement company.Of the five, the three Indian companies have emerged as strong contenders, while the two foreign firms are gearing up for entry into India through the sale. “Both are willing to pay a premium to enter India. It is rare opportunity for them to get such quality assets in market that is set for steady growth in the coming decades,” an investment banker who was familiar with the development was quoted as saying by the Business Standard.The two foreign companies are expected to submit bids of Rs. 8,500-9,000 crore, whereas the three domestic bidders are believed to be more conservative in terms of bidding and may submit bids worth Rs. 8,000-8,500 crore.In terms of what the deal means for the domestic bidders, diversified Ajay Piramal Group is planning to enter into the cement sector and by bidding for this deal the company would get a ready-made platform. On the other hand, JSW Cement, which has a current capacity of 6.4 mtpa, plans to raise its capacity to 20 mtpa over the next four years. Nirma, a conglomerate whose current capacity is 2.4 mtpa in Rajasthan, also plans to expand its operations across North and East India, the Economic Times reported.Amongst the five finalised bidders, JSW is the only company which has partnered with a private equity firm. The other four have decided to bid independently.In February this year, Lafarge had put its entire India business up for sale. In March, PE Funds, foreign and domestic companies such as Brazilian cement giant Votorantim group, CRH, Private Equity funds KKR, Blackstone, Heidelberg Cement, JSW and Piramal Group were in the race to acquire Lafarge’s assets and had submitted expression of interest for the auction.However, in March 2015, the CCI had approved the Lafarge-Holcim merger, and asked Lafarge to divest two of its cement plants with a combined capacity of 5.15 mtpa.Lafarge was unable to sell the two plants since the Mines and Minerals Development and Regulation (MMRD) Act prohibited transferring of rights of limestone mines attached with cement plans. Thus, the company issued a fresh proposal of divesting its entire India business.[1 lakh = 100,000 | 1 crore = 10 million | 100 crore = 1 billion]last_img

Aiming To Stop Suicides Texas Senate Supports Crackdown On Cyberbullying

first_imgMarjorie Kamys Cotera for The Texas TribuneState Sen. José Menéndez, D-San Antonio, listens to questions regarding Senate Bill 179, the anti-cyberbullying bill, on May 3, 2017.The state Senate cleared legislation Wednesday aiming to curb teen suicides by cracking down on cyberbullying — relentless online attacks that have pushed some Texas teens to take their own lives. Senate Bill 179, dubbed “David’s Law,” unanimously cleared the chamber, after the bill’s Democratic author, Sen. José Menéndez, supported amendments from Republicans who were initially concerned the legislation went too far in levying penalties and requiring action from school districts.The bill is named for David Molak, a 16-year-old Alamo Heights High School student who committed suicide in January 2016 after classmates online had mocked his appearance for months and threatened physical violence.“I believe we have the responsibility to act before more children take their lives,” Menéndez, who distributed copies of some of the bullying messages to his colleagues, said in an impassioned Senate floor speech. “The bullies now are on our children’s phones and on their computers.”The bill classifies cyberbullying as a misdemeanor and allows courts to issue subpoenas to unmask people who anonymously harass minors online. It would also require schools to adopt cyberbullying policies and report instances of such actions to the parents of victims and perpetrators. “What we’re trying to do is create early awareness if something’s wrong,” Menéndez told reporters.Before it hit the chamber floor, the legislation also required school districts to report on cyberbullying to police and implement certain cyberbullying prevention efforts. But Republicans added several amendments — accepted by Menéndez — that made such actions optional amid concerns about burdening small districts.The amendments also narrowed what actions would trigger a more severe Class A misdemeanor for repeat offenders or those who bully a youth who later commits or attempts suicide. The change tightened language that might automatically presume a suicide was caused by the bullying, specifying that the more severe charge was only triggered if the bully intended to provoke such injuries. State Sen. Brian Birdwell, a Granbury Republican who pushed for some of the changes, said he joined Menéndez in wanting to send a message that Texas would not tolerate cyberbullying, but “I wanted to do without setting what I thought was a dangerous presumptive precedent.”Another amendment stripped language that would have allowed families to recover damages in court for physical, emotional or mental injuries. Even with the change, however, families could still ask courts for an injunction against an alleged bully.Menéndez said he was happy to accept the changes and was then thrilled to see all 31 senators support the revised version. “That sends a message to the House and a strong message to school districts,” he told reporters. Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, a Republican, told lawmakers that their bipartisan effort made him “proud.”A separate version of the legislation has cleared a House committee. Read related coverage:While a Texas senator wants to criminalize cyberbullying when it leads to a minor’s serious injury or suicide, critics of the bill say prevention is more effective than punishment.This article originally appeared in The Texas Tribune at https://www.texastribune.org/2017/05/03/texas-senate-supports-crackdown-cyberbullying/.Texas Tribune mission statementThe Texas Tribune is a nonprofit, nonpartisan media organization that informs Texans — and engages with them — about public policy, politics, government and statewide issues.

As a webmaster for instance, it is easy enough to check all the direct mentions of your site on Reddit.Not only does it tell you something about the popularity of content, it does provide you with options to respond directly to these submissions on the site.Reddit Domain FeedsAs a user, submissions can be useful as well. If you are interested in browser extensions for instance, you can check the most recent submissions of Firefox add-ons or Chrome extensions using the feature by loading https://www.reddit.com/domain/addons.mozilla.org or  https://www.reddit.com/domain/chrome.google.com/.Other options include listing all YouTube videos submitted to Reddit, new images on Imgur that users found or uploaded, an endless stream of funny gifs on https://www.reddit.com/domain/gfycat.com/, or any form of content using the domain syntax.Reddit is a community focused site on the other hand and if you are a user on the site, you may have noticed that it does not offer options to subscribe to a domain submission listing directly.While you cannot subscribe to domain feeds using a Reddit account directly, you may integrate these feeds using RSS instead.The following RSS feed urls are provided for domain submissions on Reddit:Hot: https://www.reddit.com/domain/example.com/.rssNew: https://www.reddit.com/domain/example.com/new/.rssRising: https://www.reddit.com/domain/example.com/rising/.rssControversial: https://www.reddit.com/domain/example.com/controversial/.rssTop: https://www.reddit.com/domain/example.com/top/.rssGilded: https://www.reddit.com/domain/example.com/gilded/.rssWiki: https://www.reddit.com/domain/example.com/wiki/.rssPromoted: https://www.reddit.com/domain/example.com/promoted/.rssSidenote: You can append .rss to virtually any submission group on Reddit, not only domain submissions, to get a RSS Feed url right away that you can subscribe to in a feed reader of your choosing.There are limitations to the method however. First, feeds are limited to 25 entries which may not be enough to grab all submissions for very popular domains such as YouTube or Imgur.Second, and this weights more heavily, you cannot add directories to domain listings. While that may not matter on single-purpose sites, you may get lots of noise when you grab the feed of microsoft.com for example as virtually every submission is covered by the domain. If you are only interested in a specific blog for instance on a site, or a category of content, then you cannot use the feature for that.Ultimately though, Reddit domain feeds are a very easy and straightforward option to subscribe to domain submissions on Reddit provided that you are using a feed reader.SummaryArticle NameSubscribe to Reddit Domain FeedsDescriptionFind out how to subscribe to RSS feeds of submissions for specific domains or sites on Reddit to keep up with new content.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img
