Batsmen can’t afford to relax on tricky Eden wicket: Rohit Sharma

first_imgIndian middle order batsman Rohit Sharma on Sunday said the uneven bounce of the Eden Gardens wicket in the second Test match against New Zealand does not offer any leeway for batsmen to relax and one needed to give his 100 per cent in playing every delivery.”You have seen over the last two days, it is not a typical Kolkata wicket, as it used to be before. I think they have re-laid the surface and you may have seen… every now and then there was uneven bounce.”So, at no point the batsmen could relax and take things for granted. Every ball that you are playing, you have to ensure you are giving 100 per cent in playing the ball,” Rohit said after the third day’s play. (Rohit Sharma grateful to team management after stylish 82)Rohit came up with a resolute 82 in the second innings and stitched a 103-run partnership for the seventh wicket with wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha to put India in the driving seat at 227/8 – a lead of 339 runs over New Zealand.Referring to the stand with Saha, the flamboyant Rohit said they decided to play every ball on its merit.”When I and Saha were batting, we decided play each ball on its merit, not to think too far ahead, not to think what was coming next, focus on the present for every ball that was bowled to us,” he said.CONDITIONS NOT EASYAsked whether the conditions changed later in the day, or he made it look easy, Rohit said the conditions were never easy.advertisement”The conditions were not easy. As a bowler if you put the ball in the right areas (you can). You may see bounce and an odd ball keeping low, like you saw what happened to Virat (Kohli). You have to be at it all the time. You can’t relax.”There is something in the surface throughout the day, not just in the morning or in the evening. you can’t go too forward nor sit back,” he said.Recalling Trent Boult’s delivery that rose suddenly and injured Shikhar Dhawan’s left thumb, Rohit said: “You have to make sure you are balanced and play as late as possible.” (2nd Test, Day 3: Rohit’s 82 gives India commanding 339-run lead over New Zealand)”It was something which I looking to do. Even in the nets, I batted as late as possible,” he said.Rohit said every batsman would have certain plans to play on tracks like the one at Eden.”Some may not be comfortable playing on the front and some may not be comfortable playing on the back foot.”It’s about getting adjusted to that particular condition. We saw after lunch, or maybe after tea, it was not doing that much,” Rohit said.last_img read more

President tells UN he will pursue twin objectives

President Maithripala Sirisena said the new vision for Sri Lanka by his Government involves achieving the twin objectives of sustainable development and reconciliation.He said that a fundamental requirement in this context is dealing with the past honestly and building a modern Sri Lankan Nation. Mr. President,Mr. Secretary-General, The full text of the speech: Excellencies,Delegates,Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Trygve Lie, the first Secretary-General of the United Nations, when leaving office at the height of the Korean crisis in 1953 described the Secretary-General’s position as: “The most impossible job in the world”. It is no secret that all Secretaries-General who have held office contributed substantively to promote the universality of the United Nations and make it an organization that could serve humanity well in to the future.The incumbent Secretary-General His Excellency Ban Ki-moon has also made an excellent contribution to the Organization. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, please accept my honoured gratitude and that of my people for the service you have rendered.Mr. President,Sri Lanka has been a member of the United Nations for sixty years. As a member state we have played a very active and responsible role in this organization.Sri Lanka is a nation that respects the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations and international conventions and treaties. A main objective of the UN is to recognize, safeguard and promote human rights. Sri Lanka remains committed to fulfil this responsibility. In this respect, we intend implementing a new programme and plan of action in Sri Lanka to advance human rights.Sri Lanka plays a multi-faceted role in the United Nations. Our contribution to UN peacekeeping missions that began in the 1960s continues. Sri Lanka looks forward to enhancing further, our committed contribution to UN Peace Keeping in the future.Mr. President,A new era of democracy dawned in Sri Lanka on January 08th 2015 ushering in justice, freedom and equality. Our social and human development approach is founded on pluralism, reconciliation and sustainable development. The development vision of my Government for the next five years is also based on the same.The theme of this Session – “Seventy Years of the UN: the Way Forward to Peace, Security and Human Rights”, is therefore very much in consonance with the vision of my Government. Moreover, my Government is committed to developing a proactive and practical programme in Sri Lanka to further ensure peace, security and human rights.Mr. President,The people of Sri Lanka elected a new President and a new Government in two consecutive elections during the last eight months. Within the first six months, my Government introduced essential amendments to the Constitution in order to strengthen democracy in Sri Lanka. These amendments have reinforced the foundations of good governance through institutional reforms that strengthened pluralism and democracy. With my personal intervention and facilitation, some of the executive powers vested in the Presidency were transferred to the Parliament and other independent institutions.Following the General Elections in August this year, I was able to unite the two major political parties in the country to create an alliance for consensual governance in the country, changing the confrontational political culture that prevailed in the country for six decades.Our new vision for the country involves achieving the twin objectives of sustainable development and reconciliation. A fundamental requirement in this context is dealing with the past honestly and building a modern Sri Lankan Nation.In dealing with the past, we will follow a process of truth seeking, justice, reparation and non-recurrence.It is imperative that Sri Lanka adopts a new social, economic and political approach to rise up to the challenges of the 21st century. In this regard, reconciliation receives priority attention in my country. The new consensual government under my leadership has already taken several steps to introduce and operationalize constitutional and institutional reforms required to accelerate the achievement of these goals.Mr. President,Sri Lanka is a country that has suffered from conflict. While conflict brings destruction to a society, there are also many lessons that could be learnt during and after a conflict.All forms of war and terrorism are a disgrace to humanity. The Preamble of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states the manner in which such rebellions break out. Whatever their root cause is, the challenge of this era is to find ways and means to defeat such brutality against humanity. Resorting to terrorism as a means to solve grievances as well as action taken to eliminate terrorism can create problems. Sri Lanka succeeded in eliminating terrorism, which continues to throttle other developing countries extending from Asia to Africa and Latin America.We defeated one of the world’s most ruthless terror outfits. Equally, our post conflict experiences also have been significant. We believe that all these experiences can be shared fruitfully with other developing countries affected by terrorism. Sri Lanka remains prepared to engage in a more active dialogue with these countries and will continue to speak and advocate against terrorism.Mr. PresidentIt is in this context that I wish to address the theme of this Session.We all know that the United Nations was established with the objective of preventing the recurrence of human tragedies derogatory to mankind that took place in the twentieth century. The theme this year is: “Peace, Security and Human Rights”. This theme motivates us to review whether we have lived up to the initial expectations of the United Nations during the past seven decades.Mr. President,I believe that for global development, it is important to have a dialogue within the South as much as between the North and South. My country that represents the South can contribute immensely to nurture such South-South dialogue.Mr. President,Sri Lanka is in the forefront among the oldest representative democracies in the South Asian region. We have been fortunate in preserving the democratic ethos in our country despite the prolonged conflict. Despite several factors militating against maintaining a high economic growth rate, we succeeded in sustaining the state social welfare policies that were carried over from Independence. We never compromised on these policies which includes universal free education, free healthcare and eradication of poverty. Following a path of social democracy, Sri Lanka has succeeded in achieving high levels in the Human Development Index, even during the years of conflict. This success is testimony to our commitment for achieving the Millennium Development Goals of the United Nations.Mr. President,Development should result in the empowerment of women and youth and assure security for children. Frustration in youth usually leads to conflict. Nevertheless, Youth is the driving force for sustainable development. Therefore, we should transform the youth to a totally skilled workforce to succeed in the 21st century knowledge-based world. It should be a lead component of the Post 2015 Sustainable Development Agenda.We should similarly launch a national programme to empower women and thereby enhance their contribution in development. Special programmes to protect the children and safeguard their rights are also an essential factor to develop an efficient and humane society.My understanding of sustainable development is not to have sectorally or group-wise isolated development, but to have an inclusive model of development that is capable of uplifting development standards globally. For this purpose, I stress on the need for a fresh universal approach.Mr. President,As we learn from the Buddhist ethos prevalent in Sri Lanka, I recognize there are three kinds of human conflicts.The first is the conflict between the human being and nature. We are constantly engaged in this conflict in order to enjoy material comforts in life. As a result, modern human beings seek to exploit natural resources extensively in the name of development.The second is the conflict between ‘human’ and ‘human’. Such conflicts occur among individuals, among communities and among nations. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights affirms that such conflicts occur when human rights are not protected by rule of law.The third is the conflict within the human being. The two kinds of conflict I mentioned earlier occur when we lose the battle within us as human beings. Therefore, this is the root cause of all conflicts.Mr. President,Extremism, over-consumption, arbitrary exploitation of the environment, violation of human rights, vicious disparities in income are all results of our inability to overcome our craving. Among other problems, they cause insecurity, conflict, violation of rights, and exploitation.The edifice of sustainable development should therefore be built upon the foundation of self-discipline and equity. If this could be practised at a personal, community, national and global level, it would mark a giant leap forward for human kind.I propose that we, as national leaders, take cognizance of this self-discipline and equity-based approach when drawing relevant Action Plans for the future. Your Excellency Mogens Lykketoft, on behalf of the Government and people of Sri Lanka, please accept my heartfelt congratulations on your election as the President of the 70th Session of the General Assembly.Let me also convey my gratitude to the former President His Excellency Sam Kutesa who contributed immensely to the achievements of the 69th Session of the General Assembly.The United Nations now has a distinguished track record of seventy years. We in the UN have consistently engaged in the responsible and challenging task of ensuring global peace, security and development during these past seventy years. However, I realize that similar challenges still lie ahead of us. Being a long standing member of the United Nations, it is indeed an honour and a pleasure for me to address the United Nations annual General Assembly as the newly elected President of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka. The President said this while addressing the 70th General Debate of the UN General Assembly in New York today. read more

Welcoming the completion of Iraq’s new draft constitution, United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan today urged the parties to maintain their spirit of national reconciliation as the process moves towards the document’s adoption – an important milestone in the country’s political transition.In a statement released by his spokesman, Mr. Annan praised the “earnest efforts” made by all Iraqi political entities amid difficult circumstances and pledged the world body’s continuing support for Iraq as it emerges from war.The Secretary-General urged all Iraqi communities and political entities “to continue to work together in a spirit of national reconciliation, through a fully inclusive, transparent and participatory political process in the period leading to the national referendum when the Iraqi people will decide on their new constitution.” That poll will take place in October.The UN Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) and its constitutional team provided support to the constitution-making process. According to today’s statement, the Secretary-General has instructed his Special Representative, Ashraf Qazi, to continue efforts to promote national dialogue and consensus-building among all Iraqi communities and political entities, “with a view to helping the Iraqi people build the foundations of a new peaceful, democratic and united Iraq.” read more

UXA now the global leader in direct uranium logging technology

first_imgUranium Exploration Australia (UXA) has completed the transfer of all of the assets and intellectual property of the Prompt Fission Neutron (PFN) borehole logging tool manufacturing and service business previously agreed with GeoInstruments. The purchase further strengthens UXA’s fully-owned borehole logging business, Geoscience Associated Australia, which prior to this agreement was the sole Australian licensed distributor and servicer of PFN technology. The PFN borehole logging tool is unique in that it directly measures the content of uranium in boreholes, overcoming the problem of dis-equilibrium which limits the interpretation of uranium concentrations using gamma logging tools. It is becoming increasingly used within the uranium mining and exploration industries, and played a significant role in the discoveries of two of Australia’s largest uranium deposits, the Beverley mine and Four Mile deposits in South Australia.Commenting on the deal, UXA’s Managing Director Dr Russell Penney said, “The acquisition of GII’s business cements UXA’s unique position in PFN logging services, expanding our customer base beyond Australia to incorporate North America and potentially other countries. As agreed under the terms of the agreement signed in January, UXA has now paid a total cash consideration of $1,271,380 for the intellectual property, a number of completed and partially completed PFN tools and a fully equipped borehole logging truck. UXA has retained the services of Jim Turner on an ongoing basis, to provide technical consultancy and service to US clients of the PFN logging tools. UXA has established PFN manufacturing and servicing at GAA’s workshops in Mount Barker, South Australia under the direction of Dennis Stevens, CEO of GAA.PFN tools are being extensively used in Australia and the US to establish uranium grades at a number of uranium mines and exploration projects. The technology was originally developed in the US and has been extensively improved and streamlined for day to day borehole logging application by Jim Turner and GeoInstruments Inc in the US.UXA was formed to explore for and develop uranium and associated base and precious metal deposits, focusing principally on its ground holdings in the world class uranium provinces in South Australia and Northern Territory. UXA has an exploration joint venture with RIL Australia, a subsidiary of Reliance Industries, the largest private sector company in India. In July 2009 UXA announced the discovery of uranium mineralisation in a 3,000 m long structure within granite at Crystal Creek, on its Ngalia Thrust exploration licence in the Northern Territory, with recent RC percussion drilling showing intercepts up to 3m @ 346ppm U3O8.In February 2010 UXA announced the signing of an agreement with Rey Resources to explore for sandstone-hosted uranium at Myroodah in the Canning Basin, Western Australia.Geoscience Associates Australia is a borehole geophysical logging company principally working in the uranium and coal sectors in Australia. The UXA Group owns the worldwide rights to the Prompt Fission Neutron uranium logging tool which has a unique role to play in uranium deposits with disequilibrium.last_img read more

Group critical of Columbia River water quality

first_imgWhen the citizen group Columbia Riverkeeper submitted water quality data to state authorities last week, it also fired off an announcement detailing “extensive violations” of water quality standards on the Columbia.That might be a bit premature — the data are only a small part of a massive index of troubled waterways the state Department of Ecology is putting together for 2012. The agency’s three-month “call for data” inviting outside entities to contribute just ended Aug. 31. Now comes the lengthy process of analyzing it.“We’ve got a lot of information that we collect,” said Susan Braley, a water quality supervisor with the ecology department. She noted dozens more studies the state agency does in-house.Problems on the Columbia River wouldn’t be a new development. Higher water temperatures have long been an issue on the heavily dammed river. Oxygen levels and dissolved gas content have also strayed from state and federal standards, along with various pollutants around the watershed.The ecology department’s 303(d) report from 2008 — named for a section of the federal Clear Water Act — found problems big and small along the Columbia from the Washington Coast to Wenatchee.

Afghan suicide attack kills 19

first_imgAn Afghan child lays on a hospital bed as he receives treatment in Parwan province on 1 July, 2018. Photo: AFPA suicide bomber blew himself up in a city in eastern Afghanistan where President Ashraf Ghani was visiting, killing at least 19 people, many of them Sikhs, officials said Sunday, in the latest violence to rock the country.The attacker struck a market located hundreds of metres from the provincial governor’s compound where Ghani was holding meetings, governor spokesman Attaullah Khogyani told AFP.Among the 19 dead were 12 Sikhs and Hindus, he told AFP. Another 20 people were wounded.There were scenes of anguish at the hospital where grieving relatives wept and hugged each other as they waited for news of their loved ones.”It is over for us, we are finished, they have massacred us, at least 10 of us,” a man told AFP, too upset to give his name.Provincial health director Najibullah Kamawal confirmed 19 people had been killed, the majority of them Sikhs.Small communities of Sikhs and Hindus reside in what is otherwise an overwhelmingly Muslim nation. It is not clear if they were the intended target of the attack.Interior ministry spokesman Najib Danish confirmed a suicide bomber carried out the attack — the latest in a series of recent deadly assaults in the restive province.Ghani’s spokesman said the president was still in Nangarhar but was “away from danger”.Ghani arrived in Jalalabad earlier Sunday to open a hospital, part of a two-day visit to the province bordering Pakistan.- Ceasfire ends -The attack came a day after Ghani ordered Afghan security forces to resume offensive operations against the Taliban following the expiration of the government’s 18-day ceasefire.The government’s unilateral truce overlapped with the Taliban’s three-day ceasefire for Eid, but the militants refused to prolong it.The unprecedented ceasefire over the holiday capping Ramadan triggered spontaneous street celebrations involving Taliban fighters, security forces, and war-weary civilians.But it was marred by two suicide attacks in Nangarhar that killed dozens of people and were claimed by the Islamic State group, which has a smaller but relatively potent presence in Afghanistan.IS was not part of the ceasefire.The attack comes as US envoy Alice Wells visits Kabul as part of efforts to ratchet up pressure on the Taliban to engage in peace talks.The Taliban have so far ignored Ghani’s offer of peace negotiations. Instead, they have insisted on direct talks with the United States, which Washington has repeatedly refused.Wells said that since the Afghan government and United States were willing to start talking without preconditions, the onus was now on the Taliban to respond.”Right now it’s the Taliban leaders… who aren’t residing in Afghanistan, who are the obstacle to a negotiated political settlement,” Wells said in remarks embargoed until Sunday.Wells, who is due to hold talks in Pakistan on Monday, said Islamabad also needed to do more to squeeze the Taliban and get them to the negotiating table.”Pakistan has an important role to play… but we have not yet seen that sustained and decisive action on the part of Islamabad,” she said.last_img read more

Learning electronics company Adafruit offers children electronics lessons on YouTube

first_img Explore further © 2013 Phys.org (Phys.org) —Adafruit, a company founded in 2005 by engineer Limor Fried, has begun offering a free educational program for children on YouTube. It’s called Circuit Playground and the aim is to teach children the basics of how electricity works—it will follow an alphabetical approach—the first episode is called “A is for Ampere.” This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Children under 3 can’t learn action words from TV — unless an adult helps More information: www.adafruit.com/blog/2013/04/ … or-ampere-episode-1/ Fried (the first female engineer to appear on the cover of Wired magazine) states on her website that her goal for Adafruit is to create the best possible place online for those seeking to learn more about how electronics work and then to make and offer the best electronic products for people of all ages and knowledge levels to help them in their efforts. She appears in the video series as LadyAda (a nod to both computer programming pioneer Ada Lovelace and popular entertainer Lady Gaga), along with other puppet characters that represent different electronic components. As she explains to the puppets how different aspects of electricity work, those watching learn too. In the inaugural video, LadyAda explains to a character called Adabot what an ampere is (and gets some help from a stand-in for André-Marie Ampère himself) and why it’s important in electronics. She also uses real-world examples of whatever she’s talking about, in action—turning on a boom-box for example. The video is short, just shy of four minutes, which means little ones watching won’t have to focus very long. Citation: Learning electronics company Adafruit offers children electronics lessons on YouTube (2013, April 3) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-04-electronics-company-adafruit-children-lessons.html Fried, also Entrepreneur magazine’s Entrepreneur of the year for 2012, oversees 45 employees in her business located in New York City. Her aim and that of her company, is to promote learning—specifically, to help people understand how electricity works. With the introduction of Circuit Playground, the goal is to instill a sense of understanding in children about the basic principles of electricity and how it’s used in electronic products—it’s for children who are still too young to learn by doing, which is the essence of her business—selling kits that people can use to build electronic products and in so doing, learn how electricity works. Fried is careful to avoid patronizing those who watch the video and for that reason, it (and presumably the rest in the series) can be viewed by adults as well who wish to learn a little something themselves.Next up for Circuit Playground, is “B is for Battery.”last_img read more

It forced the plane to return to Paris after flying for two hours.The plane’s 444 passengers were then given a nights accommodation as the pilots and cabin attendants had exceeded their permitted working hours by the time the problem was fixed. A SIA spokesman told Bloomberg that the plane had turned around due to “comfort and service, not safety.” Source = e-Travel Blackboard: J.Llast_img read more
