Four killed as hoarding collapses in Pune

first_imgAt least four persons were killed and seven more injured after an allegedly illegal iron hoarding collapsed in the city’s bustling Mangalwar Peth area on Friday afternoon. Police said the flex banner was being removed when it collapsed.The deceased have been identified as Shyamrao Kasar (70), Shyam Dhotre (45), Javed Khan (49) and Shivaji Pardeshi (40). The injured have been rushed to the Sassoon General Hospital for treatment. At least five of them are said to be in a critical condition, undergoing treatment in the hospital’s intensive care unit.The mishap turned out to be a double tragedy for the Pardeshi family, residents of the city’s Nana Peth area. Mr. Pardeshi, an autorickshaw driver, was returning from Alandi with his two children and elderly mother after performing the final rites of his wife, who passed away earlier this week.More than 10 vehicles, including autorickshaws, cars and two-wheelers endured severe damage when the structure crashed on them.The incident led to a major traffic snarl in the city, with traffic police rushing to the spot to maintain order.last_img read more

ICC World Cup 2011: England set to take on Netherlands in Nagpur

first_imgCouple of years ago, the Netherlands had their most memorable moment on the cricket field when they stunned England in their opening World Twenty20 match at Lord’s and now the two sides find themselves face-to-face once again in a similar situation.On Tuesday here in the Orange City, a repeat of that performance by the men in orange looks highly unlikely but England are well aware of the fact that causing upsets in the tournament is what the minnows are here for. The International Cricket Council’s (ICC) decision to limit the World Cup to only 10 nations from 2015 effectively rules out the Dutch from the next edition.Both teams therefore, will play to a purpose with confidence on their side in their opening match at the Vidarbha Cricket Association (VCA) Stadium in Jamtha on Tuesday.Since that fateful evening in 2009, England have seen their brightest days but there are various issues that still need to be ironed out in the English camp, after the 6-1 ODI series loss to Australia that followed the triumph in the Ashes Down Under.England have looked an improved unit in the two warm-up games against Canada and Pakistan, though the former pushed them to the brink before caving in. They have almost made up their minds to open with Kevin Pietersen and push wicketkeeper Matt Prior down the order to counter the spinners. The move did pay off in the game against Pakistan last week when Pietersen scored a fluent 66 while Prior played a 23-run cameo.advertisementOne of the better players of spin – along with Ian Bell – in the English side, Prior will have to take on the important task of dealing with the slow bowlers.However, it is the decision on the inclusion of the world’s leading off-spinner, Graeme Swann, that the English think tank is delaying. Swann, who was recently blessed with a son, arrived here late on Sunday and the jet lag will be a challenge for him to deal with.Although he still remains an uncertainty, on Monday, the off-spinner had a lengthy net session where he was keenly watched and assessed by captain Andrew Strauss, coach Andy Flower and spin coach Mushtaq Ahmed.The Netherlands, on the other hand, have a sprinkling of talent in their ranks and are well capable of dismantling the more established sides in the competition on their day. Ryan ten Doeschate is definitely the most famous name from an associate team, and his skills have earned him a handsome purse from this year’s Indian Premier League auction, where he was bought by the Kolkata Knight Riders.A brilliant 98 against Kenya in a warm-up match was ample evidence of his form and talent. Opener Alexei Kervezee has had a decent season with the Worcestershire while Tom Cooper, who plays for South Australia, is another name to watch out for.For England at” the top, Pietersen and Strauss can be a fire-andice combination which may pose difficulties even for the prominent teams. Over the years, England have been the bridesmaids at the World Cup, finishing runnersup three times – 1979, 1987 and 1992. They finally managed to break the jinx in the World Twenty20 in the West Indies last year and, with Strauss and Flower in charge, have looked a more confident bunch.In the nets on Monday, the English batsmen seemed eager to prepare for the challenges that lie ahead after the Netherlands game. Spinners from a local academy were made to bowl at them for hours, though the weather was favourable.Monday morning witnessed a light drizzle in the city but the forecast for Tuesday is clear and sunny skies. The spinners are bound to play a role at some stage of the match, but the pitch is expected to give batsmen value for their shots.All in all, it looks like another mismatch, but in this case, previous experience will teach Goliath not to take David for granted.last_img read more

High 5: Cavaliers mulling options with 5th pick in NBA draft

first_imgPanelo: Duterte ‘angry’ with SEA Games hosting hassles Catholic schools seek legislated pay hike, too Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. With the 5th and 26th picks in the draft, the Cavaliers can add quality talent to a young team now under the direction of new coach John Beilein. He, along with the players selected, will transition to the pro game.While Cleveland’s fans were deeply disappointed the Cavs couldn’t conjure more magic and win the lottery for the fifth time since 2003 and have a chance at Zion Williamson, Ja Morant or RJ Barrett — the consensus Big Three in the 2019 class — Beilein was satisfied.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logisticsHe didn’t dwell on falling short. After all, he’s missed out on big recruits many times in his career.“We’re in great shape,” said the 66-year-old, exuding the same confidence that attracted him to the Cavaliers. “At 5 or 26, we’re going to get two really good players. I’ve gone down the list and I’ve played against many of those guys or I watched them play on TV or I saw them in AAU.” Duterte wants probe of SEA Games mess Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting It’s possible that the New Orleans Pelicans, who acquired the No. 4 pick from the Lakers in the blockbuster trade for Anthony Davis, grab Culver. If so, the Cavs can’t go wrong with Hunter, who matched up against Culver in the NCAA championship and is viewed as a solid prospect.Hunter was at his best during Virginia’s title-game victory, when he shook off missing his first seven shots to finish with a career-high 27 points. Hunter has range — he made 44 percent of his 3-pointers last season — and can put the ball on the floor and attack.And then there’s Reddish, perhaps the most enigmatic of this year’s top players.The 6-foot-8 forward committed to Duke before Williamson and Barrett, then became a third wheel on Mike Krzyzewski’s uber-talented squad. Reddish averaged 13.5 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 36 games, but too often deferred to his more celebrated teammates, raising questions about his attitude and passion.“My personality is kind of reserved, so people might take that as lazy or too laid back,” Reddish said at the NBA Combine in Chicago. “But that’s just not who I am. I’m naturally kind of a reserved, calm guy.”Mock drafts have had Reddish going anywhere from No. 4 to 13, but he won’t be around when the Cavaliers pick a second time. The No. 26 selection is important for a team trying to cleanse after a 19-63 season that included a coaching change after six games, numerous injuries and the surprise hiring of Beilein, who will be a rookie coach next season.Beilein knows the Cavs have a long road ahead of them, and he’s looking forward to the day when the No. 5 pick isn’t Cleveland’s.“Hopefully, the only time we’re there again is because we’ve traded and got the pick from someone else,” he said. “But we’re going to take advantage of it now.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Cayetano: Senate, Drilon to be blamed for SEA Games mess Two-day strike in Bicol fails to cripple transport LATEST STORIEScenter_img DOH drafting order to lower prices of expensive medicines PLAY LIST 02:03DOH drafting order to lower prices of expensive medicines00:50Trending Articles00:33Duterte mulling ban on plastic use02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss View comments He’s seen a few in person recently as Cleveland has conducted personal workouts and gotten to know prospective picks.Assuming Williamson, Morant and Barrett are off the board — and barring a major trade, that scenario seems a slam dunk — the Cavs will be positioned to select Texas Tech’s Jarrett Culver, Virginia forward De’Andre Hunter or Duke’s Cam Reddish, who spent last season playing in the shadow of his Blue Devil teammates Williamson and Barrett.The 6-foot-7 Culver is one of the best two-way players in this year’s draft. The Big 12′s Player of the Year as a sophomore, he averaged 18.5 points along with 6.4 rebounds and 3.7 assists. But he was equally effective on the defensive end, and that’s where the Red Raiders made their mark in marching to the national title game.Culver was on Cleveland general manager Koby Altman’s radar all last season, and Beilein got an up-close look at him in the NCAA Tournament. The 20-year-old scored 22 and Texas Tech’s defense punished Michigan 63-44 in the Sweet 16, holding the high-powered Wolverines to a season-low in points.Culver’s game has continued to mature and the Cavaliers would love to pair him with Beilein, who has built his reputation and resume over four decades developing young players.ADVERTISEMENT FILE – In this March 24, 2019, file photo, Texas Tech’s Jarrett Culver (23) shoots past Buffalo’s Nick Perkins (33) during the second half of a second round men’s college basketball game in the NCAA Tournament, in Tulsa, Okla.

Thurman bets $10K up to KO Pacquiao before Rd 3

first_imgWorld dragon boat champs out to make waves in SEA Games Arum had cautioned Pacquiao against possible brain injury for insisting on fighting fulltime at age 40.Pacquiao has been installed the underdog against the 30-year-old Thurman in their unifying championship fight for the WBA welterweight crown in Las Vegas on July 20.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSSingapore latest to raise issue on SEA Games food, logisticsSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesHere at home, there’s a warm concern for Pacquiao, mainly among street fans, many of whom are eager to place a bet on the national boxing icon.Great things are happening in the Pacquiao camp, which has moved to the Wild Card gym in Hollywood. Urgent reply from Philippine ‍football chief Meanwhile, Pacquiao proceeded to push hard; harder for the Thurman fight, which he called the most important match of his legendary career.There continued to flow glowing reports from Wild Card and the nearby Griffith Park where Pacquiao jogs on nonsparring days.An amazed Freddie Roach, claiming preparations were going very smoothly, went on to proudly swear that this young, very energetic version of Pacquiao “runs the hills like a deer.”No signs of Thurman whatsoever.Then came a flash info from TMZ Sports early yesterday, which blared Thurman has placed a “$10K up bet on himself to finish off Pacquiao before Round 3.”Cried Thurman: “I’m younger. I’m gonna let my hands go in ways that Broner didn’t. Pacquiao simply can’t hang his Keith’s style … violence and speed.”Earlier, the respected boxing scholar and analyst Michael Rosenthal wrote in BoxingScene.com that Pacquiao-Thurman is not a good match-up. “Thurman can’t match Pacquiao in terms of natural talent, but he’s too athletic, too quick, and probably too big for this version of the Filipino star.”Freddie Roach had claimed Thurman would run away in his clash against Pacquiao./ac Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. POC chief on SEA Games hosting glitches: ‘It’s normal’ Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach, who has taken full charge, continues to swear Pacquiao is head and shoulders above the 30-year-old unbeaten Thurman.Roach noted Thurman has visibly slowed down based on his last three fights, capped by a shaky showing against Jesusito Lopez in January, which Thurman was lucky to survive and win by majority decision.Roach, by the way, was genuinely gladdened by Pacquiao’s powerful and fresh form. Roach would bare that he plans to place a big bet on Pacquiao.There was nothing so far from Thurman, surprisingly timid and mum, after having slurred and insulted Pacquiao starting from the road tour for the championship in New York and Los Angeles.Pacquiao and his entire team cannot seem to get over the vulgarity committed by Thurman when the latter said he would crucify and promptly retire Pacquiao when they clash in Las Vegas.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Private companies step in to help SEA Games hosting Kevin Ingreso joins Buriram in Thai league Cayetano: Senate, Drilon to be blamed for SEA Games mess Manny Pacquiao part of 2019 SEA Games opening ceremony PLAY LIST 00:36Manny Pacquiao part of 2019 SEA Games opening ceremony01:46Pacquiao ready to go with week left before Thurman fight02:40Pacquiao ready to go with week left before Thurman fight02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City01:07Trump talks impeachment while meeting NCAA athletes02:49World-class track facilities installed at NCC for SEA Games02:11Trump awards medals to Jon Voight, Alison Krauss Duterte wants probe of SEA Games mess Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Panelo: Duterte ‘angry’ with SEA Games hosting hassles PH beach spikers also eye spots to Continental Cup MOST READ His handlers are one in swearing Manny Pacquiao will be in solid peak form against the bigger, younger world welterweight rival Keith Thurman.Nothing to worry, Pacquiao loves to assure everybody, including veteran promoter Bob Arum.ADVERTISEMENT View commentslast_img read more

James Bond’s new Spectre Omega watch out

first_imgThe new James Bond watch is here! International film star Daniel Craig, who reprises the popular fictional spy in the new installment Spectre, on Friday inaugurated the Omega factory in Villeret, and also saw the new watch he sports in the movie being manufactured.Craig made a special visit to the heart of the Swiss watchmaking industry for the inauguration of the factory. He was given a guided tour, as well as exclusive access to the factory’s assembly line, together with Nick Hayek, Swatch Group CEO, and Stephen Urquhart, president of OMEGA.As an avid watch collector himself, Craig was fascinated by the engineering and expertise on show.”I think what was so impressive was the fact that these watches are made from the ground up. You start with nothing, and then there’s suddenly a working watch. That’s the beauty. To see the engineering that goes into it and the legacy that goes into it, that’s what fascinated me,” he said in a statement.The Seamaster has been James Bond’s watch since GoldenEye (1995). With its naval history and classic style, the watch perfectly reflects Bond’s character.Now, in celebration of the new movie, fans and watch collectors will be able to buy the OMEGA Seamaster 300 model worn by 007 in Spectre, as it will go on sale as a limited edition in September.The release marks a first for the partnership as until now, only commemorative editions have been used to celebrate Omega’s link with the franchise.Omega president Stephen Urquhart said that the Omega Seamaster was chosen for James Bond by Lindy Hemming, the costume designer who worked on GoldenEye in 1995.advertisement”She told me that her choice of the Omega Seamaster in that film was influenced by the fact that Bond was a naval commander, a diver and a discreet gentleman of the world. Another factor was the colour blue, which was rare in watches at the time.”This is also linked to Bond’s education and seafaring background. I think Bond’s adventurous spirit is a great reflection of our own pioneering commitment. With each new film, we are able to reinforce that reputation, and of course be associated with a true symbol of sophistication,” he added.The latest watch features a bi-directional, rotating diving bezel, made from black, polished ceramic, combined with a LiquidMetal 12 hour scale, so that time can be kept with any country in the world.Other unique features include the ‘lollipop” central seconds hands, as well as the five-stripe black and grey NATO strap. On the bracelet’s strap holder, the 007 gun logo has been engraved.Each watch has its own unique serial number engraved on the back along with the Spectre film logo, celebrating the latest onscreen adventure.This special timepiece will be limited to just 7,007 pieces. It will be available in select boutiques.last_img read more

TVS Motor Company sees flat growth of two-wheeler sales in FY’16

first_imgTVS Motor Company expects domestic two-wheeler sales to remain flat during the current fiscal due to “marginal and slow paced” revival in economic activity.In order to overcome the challenges, specially due to slump in rural demand, the company plans to launch a slew of products this year.”Revival in economic activity appears to be marginal and slow paced. With a nominal growth in crop prices, unseasonal rains, stagnating rural wages and declined rabi output, weakness in rural economy appears to persist,” the Chennai-based company said in its annual report for 2014-15.Increasing probability of El-Nino effect can result in poor spatial and seasonal distribution of rainfall affecting kharif production, it added.”Consequently the growth in two-wheeler industry in 2015-16 is expected to be flat at 9 per cent as in 2014-15,” the company said.As per SIAM, two-wheeler sales were up 8.09 per cent for the 2014-15 fiscal at 1,60,04,581 units, up from 1,48,06,778 units in 2013-14.TVS Motor, however, remains optimistic about the long term growth prospects of the two-wheeler industry.”Even though Indian economy is experiencing a slow growth phase, the long term prospects for two wheeler industry continue to be attractive,” it said.Continued investment in infrastructure, economic reforms and well distributed monsoons are essential for sustained growth in consumer demand, it added. “A slew of new launches that has been planned in 2015-16 will further strengthen the presence of the company in two wheeler industry,” the company said.It, however, did not disclose the product launch details. During the last fiscal, the company launched various new products and refreshes including TVS StaR City+, TVS Sport, TVS Scooty Zest 110, TVS Wego 110 and TVS Jupiter.advertisementDuring the 2014-15 fiscal, the company sold a total of 24.1 lakh two-wheelers, growing by 20.9 per cent over 2013-14. The company’s motorcycle sales increased by 21 per cent during the financial year while scooter sales saw a rise of 47.7 per cent during the period. For the first quarter ended June 30, 2015, the company’s motorcycle sales grew by 11.8 per cent to 2.55 lakh units from 2.28 lakh units in the same period of the previous fiscal.Scooter sales grew by 8.6 per cent during the first quarter at 1.65 lakh units as against 1.52 lakh units during the same period of previous fiscal.last_img read more

Indian-origin shopkeeper scares off robber with golf club

first_imgA knife-wielding robber, who was scared off by a 61-year-old Indian-origin shopkeeper during a robbery attempt, has been sentenced to three years behind bars in the UK.Narendra Patel was at the counter of Sherborne News in Swindon, Wiltshire, when he was confronted by Damien Bendall with a seven-inch blade.Patel bravely stood his ground and grabbed the golf club he keeps behind the counter. Bendall fled empty-handed and later handed himself in to police.He was sentenced to three years behind bars for the crime last week.”I was ready with the golf club and he just pulled back and ran? It was a natural reflex to protect myself and my business,” Patel told ‘Western Daily Press’.The incident occurred on June 7 after Bendall came into the shop and lurked suspiciously near the fridge while talking into his cellphone.He paid for a sports drink and turned to walk off before taking a second call.Patel recalled: “At that point I could see he was going to do something unusual or grab something, so I became a little bit concerned.”He said nothing to me at all but I knew he was going to do something because customers?never stay in the shop for more than a couple of minutes. I reached for the golf club just in case, which I always have within arm’s reach.”It was with a second phone call he pulled the knife out.He said nothing at all. He just showed the knife and expected me to hand over some money.”advertisementPatel then dialled the emergency 999 number and police scrambled a helicopter and sniffer dogs in pursuit.There was no evidence linking Bendall to the raid but 12 days later his guilty conscience got the better of him and he contacted police to confess, Swindon Crown Court was told.Patel said he was happy with Bendall’s sentence and hoped he would turn his life around on release.last_img read more

Luis Suarez double helps Barcelona recover to beat Atletico Madrid in Champions League

first_imgBarcelona’s Luis Suarez netted twice for a 2-1 win over 10-man Atletico Madrid in their Champions League quarter-final, first leg on Tuesday after the visitors’ Fernando Torres opened the scoring and was later sent off.After a flurry of chances for the home side, Suarez levelled from close range in the 63rd minute and then headed the winner in the 74th, giving the European champions the edge before next weeks second leg at the Vicente Calderon.Atletico got off to the ideal start when Torres fired Kokes pass through the legs of keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen after 25 minutes but 10 minutes later he was dismissed for a second booking as they suffered a seventh straight loss to Barca.Atletico had been in confident mood after thrashing Real Betis 5-1 in la Liga on Saturday and were looking to take advantage of Barcelona, who were reeling from a 2-1 home defeat by Real Madrid that ended their record 39-game unbeaten run.Diego Simeones men defended as a team and their organised play and high pressing interrupted Barcas usual quick passing game.”We are still alive in the tie,” Atletico coach Simeone said. “They had a chance to score another goal with an extra man and they didnt, so that gives us hope and belief. The second leg is going to be a great game.”After Lionel Messi and Neymar missed the target in the early stages, Atletico pounced with their first proper chance.After a long spell of possession, Koke received a pass from Gabi and took a touch before threading the ball into the path of Torres, who got his 11th goal in 15 matches against Barcelona.advertisementThe former Liverpool and Chelsea striker received his first booking for a late tackle on Neymar in the middle of the pitch four minutes after scoring and got his marching orders for a second yellow minutes later for fouling Sergio Busquets.Simeones side had two sent off when they lost to the Catalans in La Liga and were again punished for indiscipline.After the break Messi was inches away from his 500th career goal with a scissors kick before Neymar hit the far post and then sent a shot whistling just wide.Barcelona broke Atleticos resistance when Suarez diverted Jordi Albas low cross home with his shin and then powered into the area to head Dani Alves cross past Jan Oblak to score the winner with his eighth Champions League goal this season.”The only downside is we didn’t score another goal, which would have helped us a lot,” Barcelona coach Luis Enrique said.”We feel positive because the result is in our favour, we have won again and beaten Atletico again, a team that makes things extremely difficult.”last_img read more

The CL-winning goalkeeper ditching Madrid for Leeds

first_imgIs there a more thankless task in football than the role of second choice goalkeeper? This marginal figure watches from afar as his team triumphs or toils, resigned to the fact that even if they achieve success his contribution was little more than that of a cheerleader observing from the comfort of the substitutes’ bench.What little action one does experience comes thanks to the misfortunes suffered by others; an untimely injury or suspension perhaps, or else a run-out given almost out of pity in a cup clash of secondary importance. It takes a special temperament to accept this fate, which seems to contradict the very raison d’etre of a professional football player: that of actually playing the game of football.Spare a thought, then, for Kiko Casilla. In almost four seasons at Real Madrid the former Espanyol No.1 has played just 43 games, as Keylor Navas has been the undisputed star between the posts. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? In 2018 the 32-year-old’s prospects became even dimmer. Thibaut Courtois’s arrival relegated Casilla to third choice at the Bernabeu, reducing his chances of first-team football to that desperate grey area between slim and none. But the goalkeeper now has a new chance to shine: under the watchful eye of none other than Marcelo Bielsa, making waves with Championship leaders Leeds United.Casilla has now completed a move to Leeds on a free transfer, signing a four-year deal. It represents the first transfer business of the window for Bielsa, who has worked wonders with a side that has been completely transformed by the eccentric Argentine – spy scandals notwithstanding.One need not be an international master of espionage to see why the experienced shot-stopper has caught Bielsa’s eye. Throughout his career Casilla has forged a reputation as a solid, no-frills custodian, rarely putting a foot wrong between the posts despite his limited first-team action over the past few years.The influence of Madrid great Zinedine Zidane, moreover, has helped improve Casilla’s ability on the ball, making him an adept distributor and thus a perfect fit for quick-passing, high-pressing Leeds.Kiko Casilla Real MadridFrom Leeds’ point of view too, the addition of an internationally renowned keeper is a logical step. Current No.1 Bailey Peacock-Farrell is just 22, and while the Northern Ireland international has come on in leaps and bounds he is still prone to bouts of inconsistency and the occasional disastrous mistake.Bielsa had hoped to keep the pressure on Peacock-Farrell through deputy Jamal Blackman, a former England youth international and one of Chelsea’s immense army of loanees that criss-crosses the football world. Blackman, however, was forced to return to Stamford Bridge in November after breaking his leg in an Under-23 match, a bitter blow for the player who, as Bielsa admitted, was on the verge of pushing his way into the first team.Casilla will arrive not as Peacock-Farrell’s deputy but as direct competition for a starting spot. The prospective move has already won the approval of one former Leeds favourite. “He has got a wealth of experience, hasn’t he?” Noel Whelan signalled to the BBC .“He has been at one of the biggest clubs in the world. Look, if that’s going to be happen, it’s fantastic. We need strength in depth in that area.”Leeds are also looking forward. If the Whites can repeat their brilliant form over the first half of the season and clinch a much-desired return to the Premier League, a goalkeeper of Casilla’s stature and experience will be invaluable in one of the world’s most demanding divisions.For Casilla, Elland Road represents an intriguing challenge. The player has been possibly football’s most privileged spectator over the last four years, generally looking on from the sidelines as Madrid have won three consecutive Champions Leagues. Those medals hang proudly over his mantelpiece, even if it was Keylor Navas who wore the gloves.At Leeds, however, he will have the opportunity to show the brilliant form week-in, week-out that convinced Madrid to take the former Blancos trainee back to the club after shining at Espanyol. Both Casilla and Leeds have everything to gain from such a partnership, as Bielsa’s boys go all-out for a return to the promised land of the Premier League over the next few months.last_img read more

Legislation Next Step in Expanding Pharmacy Services

first_imgNova Scotians will have more access to the services of pharmacists and licensed pharmacy technicians through a new Pharmacy Act being introduced in the legislature today, April 7. “We are updating the Pharmacy Act and regulating pharmacy technicians to provide better health care sooner to Nova Scotia families,” said Maureen MacDonald, Minister of Health and Wellness. The act will allow licensed pharmacy technicians to dispense certain types of prescriptions and do more technical work under the direction of pharmacists. This will allow pharmacists to focus on counselling patients and ensure medications are prescribed safely and appropriately to Nova Scotians. “Government values the expertise of pharmacists and technicians, and we recognize that many Nova Scotians count on their advice and care,” said Ms. MacDonald. “Expanding the services they deliver in our communities will help Nova Scotians get the care they need when they need it.” This is the next step in government’s work with pharmacists to maximize their skills and expertise in delivering health care to Nova Scotians. Pharmacy technician regulation is happening across Canada. The Nova Scotia College of Pharmacists worked with government to make the changes. “Through regulation, the Nova Scotia College of Pharmacists and the public can be assured that pharmacy technicians have met national and provincial entry to practice standards and are competent to take on more responsibility for the technical aspects of dispensing,” said Susan Wedlake, registrar of the Nova Scotia College of Pharmacists. “Pharmacists, freed from these technical tasks, will be more accessible to patients and will be able to focus on enhanced patient care.” To become licensed, pharmacy technicians will need to meet certain national requirements, including education, practical experience and passing a certification exam. They will also have to participate in ongoing education to maintain their skills. Other proposed changes in the legislation will improve transparency and accountability of the pharmacy profession and make the proposed act consistent with other legislation in the province and Canada. As a result of regulations that came into effect in January 2010, pharmacists are able to refill, extend and adjust prescriptions, and prescribe certain medications. Standards of practice are now in place, and being rolled out to pharmacists and other health care professionals across the province. In the fall of 2010, government passed amendments to the existing legislation authorizing pharmacists to administer drugs, including vaccines, and order and interpret lab tests to monitor drug therapy. Regulations are now being developed by the Nova Scotia College of Pharmacists in collaboration with government, and in consultation with pharmacists and other health care professions, including doctors, nurses and dentists. The government is committed to providing Better Care Sooner. To learn more, see www.gov.ns.ca/health/BetterCareSooner/.last_img read more

Nirav Modi remanded until Oct 17 UK extradition trial planned for May

first_imgLondon: Fugitive diamond merchant Nirav Modi, wanted in India in connection with the nearly USD 2 billion PNB fraud and money laundering case, was on Thursday further remanded to judicial custody until October 17 by a UK court which said it was working towards his extradition trial hearing in May next year.The 48-year-old appeared via videolink before Westminster Magistrates’ Court in London from his prison for a routine “call-over” hearing. Judge David Robinson told Modi, who is fighting extradition to India, that there was nothing “substantial” to deal with and that the court was working towards a five-day extradition trial hearing for May 11-15, 2020. Also Read – 2019 most peaceful festive season for J&K: Jitendra SinghA team of officials from the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) were present in court for the brief hearing, required under UK law every 28 days pending an extradition trial. There is also likely to be a case management hearing in the case ahead of the trial in February next year. Modi has been lodged at Wandsworth prison in south-west London, one of England’s most overcrowded jails, since his arrest in March on an extradition warrant executed by Scotland Yard on charges brought by the Indian government, being represented by the UK’s Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) in court. Also Read – Personal life needs to be respected: Cong on reports of Rahul’s visit abroadSince his arrest, his legal team, led by solicitor Anand Doobay and barrister Clare Montgomery, have made four bail applications, which have been rejected each time due to Modi being deemed a flight risk. In her judgment handed down at the Royal Courts of Justice in London on his last bail appeal in June, Justice Ingrid Simler had concluded there were substantial grounds to believe that Modi would fail to surrender as he does possess the means to abscond . Reiterating similar concerns as those previously raised by Westminster Magistrates’ Court during earlier bail attempts, Judge Simler ruled that after considering all the material carefully , she had found strong evidence to suggest there had been interference with witnesses and destruction of evidence in the case and concluded it can still occur. “The applicant has access to considerable financial resources, supported by an increased [bail bond security] offer of GBP 2 million,” the judge noted.

Lift communication blockade demands Kashmir Press Club

first_imgSrinagar: The Kashmir Press Club (KPC) has denounced the communication gag in the valley and called for resumption of the services as the clampdown continued for the 51st day on Tuesday.Officials said the authorities would take a call at an appropriate time on the resumption of the mobile and Internet services, which remained suspended in most parts of the valley since last month when the Centre scrapped Jammu and Kashmir’s special status. In a statement, the KPC reiterated its demand for the government to immediately lift the communication blockade, which it said would enable the media to function without any hassle in the valley. Also Read – 2019 most peaceful festive season for J&K: Jitendra Singh”The KPC is deeply concerned over the prolonged and unprecedented communication shutdown in Kashmir. It has severely hampered work of journalists and media,” it said. “Journalists are handicapped and unable to get confirmation about ground situation due to this communication blockade. The restrictions are totally unwarranted and unreasonable and aimed at gagging the Kashmir press,” the KPC said. It added that there had been several reminders from the club to the government for freeing the communication of newspaper offices, journalists and the club itself. Also Read – Personal life needs to be respected: Cong on reports of Rahul’s visit abroad”But an inordinate delay in restoring the communication confirms the misgiving that the government does not intend to provide an enabling atmosphere for the media to operate in the valley,” the statement said. The KPC had also submitted a list containing the mobile phone numbers of the accredited journalists, editors and the registered members of the KPC to the authorities concerned last Thursday, it said. “But, unfortunately, no action appears to have been taken over it so far.” Normal life remained affected in Kashmir on Tuesday as main markets and other business establishments were shut, officials said. Public transport was off the roads, while private cars were plying unhindered. Few interdistrict cabs and auto-rickshaws were also seen plying in some areas of the city, according to the officials. There were no restrictions anywhere in the valley, the officials said, adding security forces were deployed in strength in the vulnerable areas of the valley to maintain law and order. Landline connectivity is functional across the valley, but voice calls on mobile devices are working only in Kupwara and Handwara police districts of north Kashmir, officials said. There are apprehensions of the mobile and Internet services being misused by “anti-national” elements to fuel violence in the valley, they added.last_img read more

Four bodies recovered from crashed Indonesia cargo plane

first_imgTimika: The bodies of four passengers on an Indonesian cargo plane that went missing in the jungles of Papua a week ago have been recovered, the search and rescue agency said Wednesday. The DHC-6 Twin Otter took off from the city of Timika for a short flight to Ilaga, a mountainous region in the remote eastern province of Papua. Local authorities declared the plane — carrying three crew, a police officer and 1.7 tonnes of rice — missing after it failed to land hours after taking off. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince Salman ‘snubbed’ Pak PM Imran, recalled his private jet from US: Report On Wednesday, the search and rescue agency said four bodies were discovered near the wreckage of the small plane. “The location was difficult to reach because of the dangerous terrain, but thankfully we managed to recover the victims’ bodies,” Budi Purnomo of the national search and rescue agency told reporters. Indonesia relies heavily on air transport to connect its thousands of islands but mountainous Papua is a particularly difficult area to reach. The Southeast Asian archipelago has a poor aviation safety record and Papua is covered in mountainous terrain with frequent poor weather. In June, a military helicopter with 12 people on board lost contact just minutes after it took off from a remote part of Papua. The remains of the aircraft have yet to be found.last_img read more
