first_imgFile Photo of Team India captain Virat Kohli (left) and coach Ravi Shastri   –  PTI COMMENT × Skipper Virat Kohli, for the first time, shared his views on Ravi Shastri’s appointment. cricket SHARE Team India captain Virat Kohli today said he is expecting a smooth working equation with new coach Ravi Shastri given that they have a fair understanding of each other from the former captain’s previous stint as Team Director.Speaking to the media before the team’s departure for the tour of Sri Lanka — featuring three Tests, five ODIs and a Twenty20 starting July 26 — Kohli, for the first time, shared his views on Shastri’s appointment. Shastri had earlier served as Team Director between 2014 and 2016.“We have worked together in the last three years. I don’t think I need to understand anything else. We have worked before, we know what’s expected and what’s on the plate. I don’t think it will require any effort,” Kohli, flanked by Shastri, said.Shastri replaced Anil Kumble, whose successful one-year tenure ended on a bitter note after a fallout with Kohli.Asked if he was feeling any added pressure given the events of the past few weeks, Kohli shrugged it off. “I don’t think there is any added pressure. As a team we aspire to achieve. Everyone has faced hard times. I don’t take any added pressure. I continue to take responsibility till the time I am captain. You just need to take care of your mindset,” he said.Kohli was not asked any direct question on Kumble, who had admitted that his equation with the captain had become “untenable”.However, on a query regarding communication between players and the support staff, Kohli said, “Understanding and communication apply on everything. It applies to any relationship and not just cricket. Everyone has gone through relationships somewhere in life, same rules apply.”center_img SHARE SHARE EMAIL Published on July 19, 2017 File Photo of Team India captain Virat Kohli (left) and coach Ravi Shastri   –  PTI COMMENTSlast_img read more

Who are Oklahoma State’s 2016 Preferred Walk-ons?

first_imgOklahoma State’s 2016 recruiting class ranked No. 44 nationally according to 247sports. But if there were rankings on a preferred walk-on group, the Cowboys would have high marks across the board. The coaching staff put together a very solid class of preferred walk-ons, who will start their careers without scholarship with a chance to earn it down the road.The group of players helped address needs across the board at offensive line, skill positions such as athletes and receivers, and even an extremely undervalued local quarterback who has drawn praise in the offseason.Let’s take a look at some of the players who will be joining OSU as PWO’s in 2016:Nyc Burns, QB – Tulsa, OKBurns had a big senior season for Berryhill and had several other Div. I opportunities, but instead elected to walk-on at OSU for a chance to become a starting quarterback at Oklahoma State. Burns is a 6-foot-5 quarterback who is very agile and mobile for a prospect his size, and he has a strong arm to get the ball down field, too.Remember Nick Starkel? Think of a more mobile, athletic Nick Starkel with better statistics. That’s Nyc Burns.Ja’Ron Wilson, RB – Euless, TXWilson is another prime example of a prospect with other opportunities who chose the chance to become a big-time name at OSU. Wilson turned down 12 scholarship offers from the likes of Ark. State, Colorado State, Kansas, Illinois and others. The 5-foot-10 thumper from Texas hails from high school powerhouse Trinity High, which consistently churns out high level college talent. He’s had plenty of exposure to high level competition in high school which should definitely prepare him well for the next level. The group of running backs is a veteran bunch this coming season, but next year he’ll have as good a chance as any to make an impact and potentially see playing time.Both Wilson and Burns were rated as three-star prospects by recruiting services. However, because they were walk-on players, their overall rating did not contribute to the rating of the 2016 recruiting class. (Tidbit credit to Travis Burns)Zach and Cade Smith, DE/OLB – Pleasanton, TXThe twins from Pleasanton turned down several offers to become Cowboys and play in the Big 12, the same conference their father played in. After his commitment 6 months ago, he told PFB this about OSU: “It’s always been a dream of mine, so getting the opportunity from the amazing coaching staff at OSU was one I just couldn’t pass up.”The twins arrived in Stillwater on Wednesday, as did most of the 2016 class.Sheldon Barnes, OL – Jenks, Okla.Barnes is a 6-foot-5, 315-pound guard from Jenks, where OSU has found great success in recent years recruiting. Fortunately for OSU, Barnes comes from being coached by Allan Trimble, probably one of the top 5 coaches in the state regardless of the level of football. Barnes is a bit raw and could be seen as a project. But 6-5, 315-lbs. doesn’t come around often. Perhaps the coaching staff can work on technique and mold him into a productive Div. I player.OthersJosh Green, QB – Boerne, TXJake Cox, OL – Whitesboro, TXJake Dyer, LB – Whitesboro, TXWalker Reed, OL – Norman, Okla.Ry Schneider, OL – Minco, Okla.Michael Wilson, OL – Round Rock, TXJavarus Blair, Safety – Lexington, Ky.Jacob Clark, OL – Bentonville, Ark.Mitchell Perkinson, WR – Norman, Okla.

The candidates to replace Ancelotti at Bayern

first_imgBayern München Who will replace Carlo Ancelotti? The top candidates to be new Bayern Munich head coach Oli Platt Last updated 2 years ago 23:08 28/9/2017 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(13) Tuchel Nagelsmann Klopp GFX Getty composite Bayern München Carlo Ancelotti UEFA Champions League Bundesliga Jürgen Klopp Thomas Tuchel and Julian Nagelsmann look set to be the leading contenders to take charge at the Allianz Arena, but Jurgen Klopp could also be targeted Carlo Ancelotti has been sacked by Bayern Munich.The Italian claimed the Bundesliga title in his first season at the Allianz Arena but could not guide Bayern beyond the Champions League quarter-final stage and a poor start to the new campaign has cost him his job.Bayern Munich 13/2 to win CL Article continues below Editors’ Picks Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. Bayern trail league leaders Borussia Dortmund by three points after six games and lost 3-0 to Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday.His departure leaves Bayern in an awkward situation, with limited options available to them in terms of his successor at this stage of the season.Goal takes a look at three possible ways the Bavarians could move forward in the wake of Ancelotti’s departure.1. THOMAS TUCHELThomas TuchelWilly Sagnol, a former Bayern player and one of Ancelotti’s assistants, has been named interim coach while the club’s executives consider their options.If Bayern are not confident in Sagnol’s ability to guide the club through the rest of the season – allowing them to take their time, cast a wide net and secure their perfect candidate next summer – there is one obvious appointment they could make.That would be bringing Thomas Tuchel into the fold. The 44-year-old remains a free agent after leaving Borussia Dortmund at the end of last season.Tuchel has an impressive resume and is renowned as an astute tactical thinker, but he was never quite able to scale the heights Jurgen Klopp did at Signal Iduna Park. The DFB-Pokal he left with in May was the only trophy Dortmund won during his tenure.Klopp, though, was not competing against Pep Guardiola’s dominant Bayern side when he picked up back-to-back Bundesliga titles.If Bayern are going to appoint Tuchel, they have to really believe he is the man for the job in the short and long term. There is no way a ‘project’ manager like the ex-Mainz coach would be happy simply to fill in until the end of the season.Tuchel would be coming in to take the club forwards over the next three years, not to stop the bleeding while Bayern mull over their options.2. JULIAN NAGELSMANNJulian Nagelsmann HoffenheimThere has been plenty of speculation suggesting Hoffenheim wunderkind Julian Nagelsmann is the coach Bayern want next.Nagelsmann, who has plenty of links to Munich, has made no secret of his desire to one day take the job and lead Germany’s biggest club.”Bayern Munich plays a big role in my dreams,” he told Eurosport recently. “I lived in Munich for many years. I come from Landsberg am Lech, not so far from Munich.”My wife and my kid will also move to Munich shortly. We’re building a house there. It’s our hometown.”I’m very happy in life – however, Bayern Munich would make me even happier. But it does not mean that my life fortune totally depends on Bayern Munich.”Given he is only 30 years old and in his second season as a head coach, however, the timeline would have worked a lot better had Ancelotti seen out the remaining two years on his deal before Nagelsmann then stepped into the fray.As it is, appointing the young man who led Hoffenheim to Champions League qualification last season would be a risk despite his undoubted talent. Would he be able to win over hard-headed veterans like Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery, both of whom are older than him, with just one season in management under his belt?Hoffenheim’s Champions League play-off defeat to Liverpool and loss in their opening Europa League game against Braga was a reminder that their coach is still learning the ropes.The other issue is whether or not Nagelsmann would ditch Hoffenheim mid-season. They are unbeaten through six games in the Bundesliga and a point ahead of Bayern.If Bayern really are sold on Nagelsmann’s talent, though, you imagine they will find a way to make it work – whether now or next summer, with Sagnol keeping things afloat until then.3. SPRING A SURPRISEJurgen Klopp LiverpoolPerhaps Bayern will look beyond the two obvious contenders and do something else entirely.Ralph Hasenhuttl gets less press than Nagelsmann and Tuchel but has worked his way up from the German lower divisions to a second-place finish with RB Leipzig last season.Leipzig finished someway short of Bayern in the end but were closer to them than Dortmund and Hoffenheim all year – an extraordinary achievement for a newly promoted side, even with their financial backing taken into consideration.If Bayern are looking for someone with more experience than Sagnol who might agree to take the job until the end of the season initially, they could look at another former player in Niko Kovac.Kovac had an Eintracht Frankfurt team that narrowly avoided relegation in 2015-16 flying high for the first half of last season, but their form tailed off badly and they ended up in 11th.The Croatian would surely jump at the chance to take a stab at the Bayern job given the limited resources available in Frankfurt.Then there is Jurgen Klopp. Bayern have certainly seemed to have a lust for the last man to deny them the Bundesliga title, but whether the feeling is mutual is another matter.Klopp has never appeared interested in managing and signing established stars at a club where the expectation above all – even though the Bayern hierarchy may profess to admire his style of football – is simply to win trophies by any means necessary.It is hard to see him departing Liverpool – even at his slightly difficult juncture in his time at Anfield – but that may not put Bayern off trying.last_img read more

The Netherlands: EMO Reaches Milestone with Billionth …

first_img Print  Close 此页面无法正确加载 Google 地图。您是否拥有此网站?确定 EMO, January 14, 2014 My location zoom EMO hits a new dry bulk discharge record today — the billionth tonne of dry bulk. A milestone for Europe’s largest dry bulk terminal.Forty years ago, EMO unloaded its first tonne of iron ore (November 28th 1973). Now the terminal has reached the billion tonne mark.The honour goes to the Vale China. The Vale China, with its 375,000 tonnes of iron ore, is one of the largest dry bulk vessels in the world. The vessel is 362 metres long, 65 metres at the beam, and has a draft of 23 metres. Using three 85-tonne grab unloaders, it takes approximately four days to unload the Vale China. Thanks to EMO’s unloading capacity and draft, the EMO terminal is an ideal destination for this huge bulk vessel.EMO is the largest transhipment terminal for coal and iron ore in Europe. Strategically located at the Maasvlakte in the port of Rotterdam, the terminal holds a prominent position in the coal and iron ore market. Established in 1973, the iron ore storage and transhipment company, rapidly developed into a modern and multifunctional company. In addition to unloading seagoing vessels and loading trains, lighters and seagoing vessels, EMO carries out other activities such as screening, blending and washing coal.last_img read more

SecretaryGeneral welcomes latest agreement between Sudan and South Sudan

In a statement released by his spokesperson, the Secretary-General welcomed conclusions reached on implementation modalities of the 27 September 2012 Agreements at meetings held under the auspices of the African Union High-Level Implementation Panel in Addis Ababa on 22 and 23 April 2013. The agreements – signed in the Ethiopian capital under the auspices of the High-Level Panel – includes provisions on security, the common border and economic relations aimed at enabling the two nations to fulfil their obligations under a so-called roadmap for easing tensions, facilitating the resumption of negotiations on post-secession relations and normalizing the relations between the two countries.The Secretary-General is also encouraged by the start of the direct talks today between the Government of Sudan and the opposition group SPLM/North, the spokesman said. “This demonstrates the commitment of both sides to find a peaceful solution to the conflict in Southern Kordofan and Blue Nile states,” he added. Mr. Ban urged the parties to agree on an immediate cessation of hostilities in order to allow for humanitarian access to the civilian population in the affected areas and to create an atmosphere conducive to a durable political solution of the conflict, he said. read more

Ban highlights importance of sea tribunal as legal body commemorates its 20th

Further highlighting the importance of the Convention on the Law of the Sea, informally known as UNCLOS, Mr. Ban said that it continues to provide the overarching legal framework within which all activities in the oceans and seas must be carried out and that it allows for the further development of specific areas of the law of the sea and is thus capable of adapting to the evolving needs of the international community. In conclusion, the Secretary-General expressed hope that the commemoration will encourage even more States to make use of the tools available to them under the Convention to settle international disputes related to the application and interpretation of the Convention on the Law of the Sea and the use of the world’s oceans. The International Tribunal is an independent judicial body established by the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea to adjudicate disputes arising out of the interpretation and application of the Convention. The body is composed of 21 independent members, elected from among persons with the highest reputation for fairness and integrity and of recognized competence in the field of the law of the sea. “Sustainable Development Goal 14 (SDG 14) reflects the global commitment to conserve and sustainably use the oceans and their resources by implementing international law as reflected in the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea,” Mr. Ban said today in Hamburg, Germany, at the ceremony to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea.“To guarantee the capacity of the oceans to continue to provide for humanity’s many and varied needs in a sustainable manner, we must do much more to ensure the uniform and consistent application of the Convention,” he added.In his remarks, Mr. Ban highlighted the uniqueness of the Tribunal as it can settle not only disputes among States but also between the appropriate organs of the International Seabed Authority (a body established to organize, regulate and control all mineral-related activities in the international seabed area beyond the limits of national jurisdiction) and both public and private entities acting as contractors, through its Seabed Disputes Chamber.He added that the importance of the Tribunal was also reinforced, as evidenced through its recent confirmation, in Case No. 21, concerning the request for an advisory opinion submitted by the Sub-Regional Fisheries Commission that it can issue Advisory Opinions when an international agreement related to the purposes of the Convention specifically provides for this. read more

Traitement du SIDA la recherche multiplie les signes encourageants

first_imgTraitement du SIDA : la recherche multiplie les signes encourageantsLa conférence sur le SIDA qui se tenait à Kuala Lumpur s’est achevée sur une note d’espoir, des nouvelles encourageantes ayant été fournies par les chercheurs qui travaillent à la mise au point d’un traitement curatif du VIH.Alors que les recherches sur le SIDA se multiplient à travers le monde, c’est un nouvel espoir dont ont fait part des chercheurs lors d’une conférence qui se tenait à Kuala Lumpur. Un espoir de pouvoir un jour parvenir à bout de la maladie chez des personnes déjà infectées. En effet, ces scientifiques qui se démènent pour trouver un traitement curatif du VIH ont présenté plusieurs cas faisant état de guérison prometteuse.En premier, ils ont fait part du cas du “bébé du Mississippi”. Il s’agit d’une petite fille, infectée par le SIDA dans le ventre de sa mère, et qui a reçu un cocktail de trois médicaments à partir de sa 30e heure de vie et pendant 18 mois. 15 mois après l’arrêt de sa trithérapie, l’enfant ne présente toujours aucune trace détectable du VIH dans le sang. Autres cas mentionnés, ceux de deux hommes séropositifs ayant fait l’objet d’une greffe de moelle osseuse qui ne présentent plus de trace du virus respectivement 15 et 7 semaines après l’arrêt de leur traitement.Des résultats à prendre avec prudence Les chercheurs restent toutefois extrêmement prudents et soulignent que ces signes encourageants ne signifient pas pour autant qu’un remède miracle soit à portée de main. Ils laissent simplement entrevoir la possibilité d’une disparition complète du virus chez certains patients, ce qui constitue déjà une avancée fondamentale. A défaut, il serait peu à peu possible de parvenir à un contrôle durable de la maladie (ou rémission fonctionnelle) ne nécessitant plus la prise quotidienne et à vie de traitements antirétroviraux.À lire aussiPourquoi certains s’évanouissent-ils à la vue du sang ?”On ne peut pas encore parler de traitement curatif”, explique Timothy Henrich du Brigham and Women’s Hospital à Boston, “mais ce que je peux dire c’est que si ces patients peuvent vivre sans virus détectable pendant au moins un an, voire un an et demi après l’arrêt du traitement, les risques d’un retour du virus sont minimes”. Selon Deborah Persaud qui dirige l’étude sur le “bébé du Mississippi”, le traitement précoce des nouveaux-nés constitue probablement le meilleur moyen d’éviter que le VIH ne s’installe dans les réservoirs viraux.L’importance d’un traitement précoce Des chercheurs français ont également présenté les études ANRS Optiprim et Visconti, qui mettent en avant la nécessité de procéder à un traitement précoce pour contrôler l’infection par le VIH. “Compte tenu de la baisse importante des réservoirs dans ces deux études, il n’est pas exclu qu’une rémission fonctionnelle, c’est à dire un contrôle prolongé de l’infection sans traitement puisse être à terme obtenue chez les patients traités de façon précoce” (lorsque le nombre de lymphocytes CD4 est inférieur ou égal à 500 cellules/mm3 de sang), estime Jean-François Delfraissy, directeur de l’Agence nationale de recherches sur le sida et les hépatites virales (ARNS).Le 4 juillet 2013 à 18:18 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Three New Zika Cases Rainy weather booms mosquito population

first_imgGoogle took another step towards becoming a phone company Wednesday with a relaunch of its mobile phone service under a new Google Fi branding. Previously known as Project Fi, the service is now officially available on iPhones as well as the majority of Android phones.The service offers consumers a simplified pricing model: Unlimited talk and text cost just $20 a month. Google charges $10 for every GB of data used, but caps data charges at $60. This means that consumers never pay more than $80 per month, and potentially a lot less if they don’t use much data.Google first launched Project Fi in 2015 as a phone service for its own Pixel line of phones. The service technically worked with other phones in the past as well, but often required some manual tweaking.Now, the company is making using Fi with third-party phones a lot easier: On Thursday, it released an iOS app that can be used to monitor data usage, billing and more. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Most notably, they may not be able to get the same network coverage as someone who uses a Google-made Pixel phone. Google doesn’t operate its own cell tower infrastructure for Fi, but instead rents it from other operators, including T-Mobile and Verizon.Pixel phones, and a select number of other Android phones, can dynamically switch between these networks, and use which ever cell tower has the strongest signal. iPhones, and Android phones not optimized for Fi, rely on T-Mobile’s network by default.center_img Popular on Variety last_img read more

Capcom Promises to Fix ChunLis Face in Marvel vs Capcom Infinite

first_img ‘God Eater 3’ on Switch Brings Franchise Back to Its Roots‘Devil May Cry 5’s’ Kylo Ren Mod Is Angst Overload For unknown reasons, Chun-Li and a number of other characters look very different in the upcoming Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. Since these are some of gaming’s most beloved characters, their new looks haven’t gone over well with a large segment of fans. As is the thing nowadays, folks took to social media to point out just how different the characters look now.This is a tweet from Ryan “FChamp” Ramirez, who is a professional fighting game player. As you can see from the pictures he posted, Chun-Li doesn’t even look like the same person. While I personally don’t think she looks as horrible as some say, it’s clear that Capcom drastically changed her appearance.2016 Chunli vs 2017 Chunli pic.twitter.com/FWiXvD9YK4— FChamp Ryan Ramirez (@fchampryan) June 13, 2017Chun-Li isn’t the only character who looks off. Below is a comparison of what Dante looks like in MvCI and what he looked like in Devil May Cry 4. Twitter user Charles Lai points out how the Dante model from the PS3 era looks better than the one on PS4.Dante on late-PS4 in Marvel VS Capcom compared to early-PS3 Devil May Cry 4.What happened? pic.twitter.com/0YIqj9uSzb— Charles Lai (@comtar) June 13, 2017Thankfully, Capcom has heard fans’ displeasure and is promising to update the characters’ looks before the game is released. In a statement to EuroGamer, Capcom says: “The development team is hard at work finishing the game for the September 19 release date, and based on the feedback we heard, we are currently making improvements to Chun-Li as well as other Capcom characters. Since the work is still in progress, we don’t have anything final to show you just yet, but stay tuned.”Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite has been getting a lot of flack since it was revealed. From changed characters looks to the omission of the X-Men, fans do not seem happy about where this game is headed. Will making characters’ faces more palatable help things? Maybe. Hopefully, folks will like the actual game itself and perhaps forgive some of its alleged shortcomings.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Stay on targetlast_img read more

Malaysias opposition alliance collapses over policy clash

first_img Comments   Share   The breakup benefits Prime Minister Najib Razak’s coalition, which has been struggling to win back votes.It came after a new conservative leadership in the Islamic party recently voted to sever ties with the Democratic Action Party. The DAP declared the death of the opposition pact on Tuesday, while Anwar’s People’s Justice Party said Wednesday the alliance “no longer functions formally.”In the previous two elections, the parties set aside their differences over the Islamic party’s goal to implement Shariah laws.However, cracks between the parties began appearing after the Islamic party moved to push for the Shariah laws in Parliament this year. In early February, Anwar was jailed for five years after losing his appeal on a sodomy charge, which he maintained was a political conspiracy to kill his career.Support for Najib’s National Front coalition has been slowly eroding since 2008 after more than five decades of unquestioned dominance. Najib has also recently come under siege, with former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad leading calls for his resignation amid controversy over a debt-laden state investment fund.Anwar’s wife Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, who heads the People’s Justice Party, expressed regret over the Islamic party’s move but said the DAP’s declaration of the alliance’s death was too hasty. Despite the breakup, she said her party will continue to support governance in three Malaysian states ruled by the opposition.She said in a statement the party will seek to “build a coalition among political parties, non-governmental organizations, and groups and influential individuals” to defeat the ruling coalition.Ruling party lawmakers said they were not surprised by the breakup.“I have said many times before that the (opposition alliance) is so fragile. Sleep on the same pillow, (but) have different dreams,” Defense Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said on Twitter.The next general elections are due in 2018.Copyright © The Associated Press.

Parents, stop beating yourself up Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Malaysia’s three-party opposition alliance, once touted as an alternative to the country’s long-ruling coalition, has collapsed over policy differences.The People’s Alliance, led by jailed former Deputy Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim, had made strong gains since 2008 polls and won the popular vote in 2013. However, a renewed push by one of its members, the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party, to enforce Islamic Shariah laws sparked protests from another member, the Democratic Action Party.
