It’s around 200 every year.”We’re usually after three players, so we might be talking to nine in reality.”What you are referring to in the original question does happen, but it’s less likely to happen give our closed-door approach to recruitment targets.”But it does exist and we have to be wary of that [players using the club.”Sometimes, the amount of time a player or his agent invests into discussions, meetings and contracts shows that there is an interest.”If it was only a flippant interest then they could go and put a fake story then go to a club president and go say ‘Look at who is in for me.’ That happens all the time as well.”What sometimes also happens is that we do have a player in an agreed position, but his club refuse to sell and, because the club refuse to sell, the player then uses that to get a new contract”From our perspective, we have to try and see through it and make sure that the club is not being used.”We don’t waste time, we’re more robust.” last_img read more

Players like Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Iyer and Rishabh Pant have led from the front in the batting department, while in bowling they have been spearheaded by Kagiso Rabada, who is having a dream run this season.On the other hand, CSK have not been at their best this season despite being the first team to seal a playoff berth. In the two matches that MS Dhoni has not played, they have not been able to handle the pressure and have lost the game. So, they would be desperately hoping that their regular skipper regains full fitness before the business end of the tournament.CSK would, however, like to take confidence from their win against Delhi when the two teams met at the Feroz Shah Kotla on March 26.Where will the IPL 2019 match between CSK and DC be played?The IPL 2019 match between Chennai Super Kings and Delhi Capitals will be played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai from 8 PM IST.Where can I watch the IPL 2019 match between CSK and DC live?advertisementThe match will be shown on the Star Sports TV network and can also be streamed on hotstar.com.Where can I check the online live updates of the IPL 2019 match between CSK and DC?You can follow our coverage here – www.indiatoday.in/sports/ipl-2019 & www.indiatoday.in/sports.What are the squads for the IPL 2019 match between CSK and DC?Chennai Super Kings: Harbhajan Singh, Shane Watson, Dwayne Bravo, MS Dhoni (c), Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, Murali Vijay, Karn Sharma, Kedar Jadhav, Ambati Rayudu, Imran Tahir, Faf du Plessis, Deepak Chahar, Mohit Sharma, Shardul Thakur, Dhruv Shorey, Scott Kuggeleijn, Monu Kumar, Mitchell Santner, Chaitanya Bishnoi, N Jagadeesan, Ruturaj Gaikwad, KM AsifDelhi Capitals: Ishant Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Amit Mishra, Colin Ingram, Colin Munro, Jalaj Saxena, Trent Boult, Chris Morris, Hanuma Vihari, Bandaru Ayyappa, Axar Patel, Ankush Bains, Shreyas Iyer (c), Kagiso Rabada, Rahul Tewatia, Avesh Khan, Jagadeesha Suchith, Nathu Singh, Rishabh Pant (wk), Sandeep Lamichhane, Keemo Paul, Prithvi Shaw, Manjot Kalra, Sherfane RutherfordAlso Read | Yellove from Nepal: Meet Sonal, the Dhoni fanatic who whistles loud for CSKAlso Read | CSK players get a ‘Rish-hug’ from Pant ahead of high-profile clash vs DCAlso Read | Will take call on MS Dhoni’s participation against Delhi Wednesday: FlemingFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Liberals hope to deal with HIV nondisclosure issue if reelected LamettiLiberals hope to deal with HIV nondisclosure issue if reelected Lametti

first_imgTORONTO — The federal justice minister says the Liberals hope to tackle the issue of criminalization of HIV non-disclosure if they are re-elected in the fall.Non-disclosure has led to assault or sexual assault charges against people with HIV because it’s been found to invalidate a partner’s consent.Justice Minister David Lametti says the government won’t be able to act on the findings of an imminent report on the issue before the October election.But he says the Liberals, if returned to power, would try to draft a criminal law provision that targets intentional non-disclosure.The federal standing committee on Justice and Human Rights has been examining the issue and is expected to release a report next week, just as the House is set to rise.Late last year, the government instructed federal prosecutors in the North that they should no longer prosecute anyone for not disclosing their HIV status to a sex partner where there is no risk of transmitting the virus.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

“The Secretary-General was deeply saddened to learn of the death of his friend Tom Lantos, the veteran United States legislator, Holocaust survivor, human rights advocate and long-time supporter of the United Nations,” a spokesperson for Mr. Ban said in a statement.Mr. Ban paid tribute to the California Congressman’s “exceptional courage and contribution, in the national and international arenas, as a champion of our common humanity.”He said Mr. Lantos’ “immeasurable efforts in attuning the consciousness and the conscience of people to the dangers of intolerance and human rights violations will long be remembered.”Spokesperson Michele Montas added that the Secretary-General “joins Mr. Lantos’ colleagues in the United States Congress, the Jewish community and the international community in giving thanks for his life.”The Secretary-General met Mr. Lantos, Chairman of the House of Representatives’ Foreign Affairs Committee, as recently as last June in Washington, DC, but the two shared a friendship dating back to Mr. Ban’s days as foreign minister of the Republic of Korea. In that capacity, he met both Mr. Lantos and his wife, Annette, in pursuit of their shared goals of promoting human rights and tolerance.In today’s statement, Mr. Ban extended his condolences to Annette and the entire Lantos family. 11 February 2008United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today mourned the passing of United States Congressman Tom Lantos, paying tribute to the late legislator’s courage as a champion of humanity. read more

The price has been falling sharply since last June, when it peaked at $107 a barrel.Brent crude, a benchmark for international oils used by many U.S. refineries, declined $3.75, or 6.5 per cent, to close at $54.16 a barrel in London.In other futures trading on the NYMEX:— Wholesale gasoline fell 12 cents to $1.482 a gallon.— Heating oil fell 8 cents to close at $1.767 a gallon.— Natural gas fell 9.2 cents to close at $2.662 per 1,000 cubic feet. read more

Warning over alternative medicines danger for children after autistic boy 4 hospitalisedWarning over alternative medicines danger for children after autistic boy 4 hospitalised

first_imgDoctors have warned of the dangers of alternative medicines after a four-year-old autistic boy was admitted to hospital suffering adverse effects from a cocktail of supplements.The child, who was not named in a report of the incident, had been vomiting and constipated for three weeks and also lost 6lb (3kg) in weight before he was taken to accident and emergency and diagnosed with severe hypercalcaemia – or very high calcium levels in his blood.Police were even called to investigate a naturopath who had advised the family to give their son a combination of 12 different complementary therapies including calcium, vitamin D, camel milk and zinc.The parents only revealed he had taken the supplements three days after he was admitted and doctors said it should be “routine practice” to take details of alternative therapies as part of the patient’s medical history. Writing in the British Medical Journal’s Case Reports, doctors from Barts Health NHS Trust, in London, said: “His parents were devastated that something they had given to their son with good intent had made him so unwell.”The safeguarding team became involved as well as the police to investigate the naturopath who had advised the therapies.”Many families view these therapies as safer ‘natural’ options. But as this case demonstrates, there can be significant adverse effects which may go unrecognised due to lack of monitoring, recognition and experience with these therapies.”The boy eventually made a full recovery two weeks later. Responding to the doctors’ alternative therapies warning, Jane Harris, of the National Autistic Society, said: “This awful case shows we need more professionals in place to give families accurate advice and talk to them about what really helps and how to find the right support.”It’s crucial that doctors and healthcare professionals take the concerns of families seriously and are able to talk through the potential risks of alternative therapies, even when they might seem harmless.” There can be significant adverse effects which may go unrecognised due to lack of monitoring, recognition and experience with these therapiesBarts Health NHS Trust report Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Wireless camera monitor system for mobile plantWireless camera monitor system for mobile plant

first_imgConnecting a rear view camera system to a large vehicle or machine can be lengthy and costly due to the amount of cable to install and the risk of it being damaged. Brigade’s new wireless system eliminates excess cabling, saving up to two hours fitting time and removes the need for an additional retractable coiled cable. New digital wireless technology gives almost instantaneous pictures (camera to monitor in less than 200 milliseconds) and is not affected by electrical interference from other vehicle or machine equipment. The camera image is sent to the monitor via a transmitter and receiver, and once paired, the wireless link is secure.last_img read more

Le Futuroscope accueille le 8e continentLe Futuroscope accueille le 8e continent

first_imgLe Futuroscope accueille le “8e continent”Samedi, le parc du Futuroscope a ouvert sa toute nouvelle attraction baptisée le “8e continent”. Une exposition-jeu que Maxisciences a pu tester en avant-première.Asie, Europe, Amérique du nord et du sud, Afrique, Océanie, Antarctique : notre planète ne compte normalement que 7 continents. Mais le parc d’attraction du Futuroscope situé dans la Vienne à côté de Poitiers, a décidé d’en créer un 8e. C’est d’ailleurs le thème de sa nouvelle exposition ludique inaugurée samedi en présence de la presse. Mais si le “8e continent” semble faire appel à quelque monde imaginaire, la réalité est toute autre. Réalisée avec la fondation de la navigatrice Maud Fontenoy, l’attraction sensibilise en fait à la pollution des océans.C’est en 1997 que le capitaine britannique Charles Moore tire pour la première fois la sonnette d’alarme. Au cours d’une de ses expéditions, son embarcation se retrouve piégée au beau milieu d’une plaque de déchets en plein Pacifique. Un amoncellement de détritus en tous genres qui s’avère ne pas être unique à l’échelle planétaire. “Lors de mes traversées à la rame ou à la voile, j’ai pu me rendre compte à quel point la mer était mal respectée. A plusieurs reprises, j’ai croisé des énormes morceaux de polystyrène flottants, des bouées ou filets de pêche abandonnés, des bouteilles et des sacs en plastique”, a expliqué Maud Fontenoy, devenue porte-parole de l’Unesco pour les océans. Une pollution marine qui viendrait à 80% de la Terre et de l’activité humaine et qui menacerait tous les animaux vivant dans les océans.C’est donc pour sensibiliser le public à ce désastre que le Futuroscope s’est allié à la fondation de la navigatrice et a créé le “8ème continent”. Mais comme à son habitude, pas question de faire une simple exposition, le Parc a décidé de mêler ludique et éducatif. C’est donc une attraction en plusieurs temps qui est proposée au public. Au début, les visiteurs traversent un parcours de sensibilisation réalisé “sous forme de carnet de voyages” et illustré par des dessins, photos, schémas et articles. On y apprend par exemple que les mégots et sacs plastiques sont les premiers déchets retrouvés en mer mais que les plaques de détritus recèlent également chaussures, jouets et emballages alimentaires. Une fois l’allée extérieure traversée, le visiteur entre alors dans le vif du sujet avec l’attraction même.Jouer pour éduquerÀ lire aussiPourquoi l’eau des océans est-elle salée ?Pour faire passer le message, le Futuroscope entraine les visiteurs au coeur d’un jeu trépidant. A cheval sur des scooters des mers plutôt agités, ils sont installés en face d’un écran géant et équipés de “pistolets laser”. La mission est simple : aider deux explorateurs à éliminer les déchets marins du 8e continent en tirant sur les détritus. A chaque tir réussi, les joueurs accumulent les points et peuvent à la fin du jeu comparer leur score, avant qu’un nouveau message de sensibilisation ne soit diffusé à l’écran. “Cette attraction est l’occasion de transmettre sur un mode ludique un message éco-citoyen et responsable, fidèle au positionnement du parc”, a indiqué Dominique Hummel, le directeur du Futuroscope. Au final, le jeu ne dure qu’une dizaine de minutes mais le visiteur ressort amusé et davantage sensibilisé à la pollution marine et la protection des océans.Découvrez cette nouvelle attraction en images sur Maxisciences.

Condé Nast Moving Away From Magazine Web Sites as Print CompanionsCondé Nast Moving Away From Magazine Web Sites as Print Companions

first_imgCondé Nast has been undergoing climactic changes since this summer, when the big consumer magazine publisher hired reorganization consultants McKinsey & Company to help “rethink” the way it does business. Arguably the most noticeable of the changes were the sweeping layoffs that trickled out, magazine-by-magazine and division-by-division, over the span of several weeks.But the company also is experiencing a dramatic refocus online. It restructured Condé Nast Digital’s sales team into five brand categories. It developed its own reader technology to view magazine content on Apple’s iPhone. It launched Details.com and folded Men.Style.com site into GQ.com—a change that suggests that the publisher is embracing magazine Web sites more as enhanced platforms for the titles’ editorial missions rather than simply as companions to the print product.Senior vice president and chief revenue officer Drew Schutte [pictured] spoke with FOLIO: about the online changes at the company and what they mean for its print magazines and staffers. FOLIO:: Why reorganize Condé Nast’s digital sales team under five market-facing categories? Schutte: The new alignment better focuses our teams. Eight months ago we brought 26 sites under one roof, giving us tremendous scale (48 million unique visitors per month) and flexibility to offer advertisers. We will continue to benefit from this scale. The additional expertise on the individual sites is now enabling us to deliver better ideas, and the deep customization more advertisers are looking for. It also allows us to coordinate seamlessly with our print partners, in order to meet the increased demand for cross-channel selling.   FOLIO:: While Condé Nast has been called a “late bloomer” in the digital realm, some of the recent changes, including the folding of Men.Style.com and launches of Details.com and GQ.com, suggest a focus on each magazine brand having a distinct voice online. How does that play into overall brand strategy?Schutte: I don’t think of Condé Nast as a late bloomer in the digital realm. CondéNet was started in 1995, and Epicurious.com is celebrating its 15th birthday this year, making us as old as Yahoo! and Internet Explorer. We have six iPhone Apps and more on the way, and GQ is the first magazine to launch an iPhone App that’s a full replica of the print magazine, complete with sponsors and circulation. However we can, and we are, getting better at adopting new technology earlier, and bringing the latest offerings to advertisers. We’re no longer looking at our magazine sites as magazine companions, but rather as enhanced versions of that title’s editorial mission. A great example of that is our decision to replace Men.Style.com with GQ.com and Details.com. We’ve long said that we will build a robust Web site for each of our titles, but this doesn’t mean the new sites will replace the old ones in any other cases. Epicurious continues to thrive online, and so does BonAppetit.com. The Men.Style brand depended heavily on GQ and Details readers. GQ readers were 35 percent of the site’s traffic, so in this case, there was so much overlap in audience that it made sense to rethink our position in the men’s category.  FOLIO:: What do these changes mean for the print magazines? Schutte: As a company, we continue to stay focused on both print and online. We believe there is a tremendous future in both print and digital, and especially in the two together, as more advertisers want integrated programs. We’ve seen an increase from 8 percent of advertisers buying integrated programs last year to 15 percent this year.  Approximately 30 percent of the top advertisers buy both print and digital.  FOLIO:: Would you say Condé Nast is shifting focus from print to online? If so, how is the company managing that cultural shift?Schutte: The word isn’t “shift,” it’s “addition.” At Condé Nast Digital, we are focused on creating premium content online, and distributing that content to reach the maximum number of people.  Whether that’s through iPhone Apps, e-Readers and Tablets, distribution deals, we’re exploring all of those platforms and more.  FOLIO:: As Condé Nast looks to 2010, how will it monetize its online properties? Where will the money come from?Schutte: It will come in many ways. There are established sites, like Wired, Epicurious and Style, that will continue to grow in both users and revenue. There are sites in 2009 that have emerged as strong players like Glamour, Vanity Fair and The New Yorker, and are poised well for significant revenue growth in 2010. There are also sites like Golf Digest that will be getting significant investment for the first time. In addition, we will continue to build on the success we’ve had in creating integrated programs for advertisers like Mercedes, LG, P&G, Wal-Mart, and many others. Finally, there is the revenue we’re bringing in from custom work for clients, which continues to grow.FOLIO:: After all the layoffs we’ve read about/reported at Condé Nast, is the company hiring now on the digital side? If so, what positions? What will the focus be?Schutte: We are hiring on an as needed basis in multiple areas including sales, marketing, business development and creative services.FOLIO:: Where are Condé Nast’s digital-side leaders coming from? Are they former print people? What mindset is the company looking for/grooming?Schutte: We continue to look for people, both from the print side, and those with an online background, who have a track record of success and a deep understanding of the digital world.last_img read more

4 killed in Mumbai highrise fire4 killed in Mumbai highrise fire

first_imgFirefighters try to extinguish a fire at a residential building in Mumbai, India 22 August 2018. Photo: ReutersAt least four persons, including an elderly woman, were killed and 16 others injured on Wednesday when a massive fire ripped through a highrise building in Mumbai, officials said.The fire broke out on the 12th floor of 17-storeyed Crystal Tower building located in Parel. The flames quickly spread to the 13th floor and adjacent flats, trapping many of the 100-plus residents in the building.The Mumbai Fire Brigade rushed 12 fire tenders, a snorkel and other advanced equipements to combat the blaze.The firemen managed to rescue another 20 stranded persons.Though the exact cause of the fire is being investigated, officials tentatively surmise it could be due to a short-circuit.Two of the victims are Shubhada Shelke, 62, Bablu Shaikh, 36. The identities of the two other persons were being ascertained.Among the injured is one fireman Sandeep Manjre besides nine males and six females, said an official.Rushing to the site, Mumbai mayor Vishwanath Mahadeshwar said a probe would be launched to find if there were any safety violations in the building and appropriate action shall be initiated.Some residents told mediapersons that there was allegedly no fire-fighting equipment in the building premises as well as escape routes.last_img read more

Texas Legislators Propose Raising The Age To Buy TobaccoTexas Legislators Propose Raising The Age To Buy Tobacco

first_img To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Listen 00:00 /01:13 X Share Two Houston law makers want to prohibit anyone under the age of 21 from purchasing cigarettes or other tobacco products.Richmond Republican representative, John Zerwas is the author of House Bill 1908, and feels passionate about the issue.“It kills 28,000 people in Texas every year, and more than 480,000 nationwide,” says Zerwas. “And nearly half a million Texas kids alive no will ultimately die prematurely from smoking if the current trends continue.”Doctor Ernest Hawk is the head of cancer prevention at MD Anderson Cancer center.Doctor Hawk stated that the proposed legislation could reduce respiratory infections, asthmatic attacks, and low birth weight pregnancies.“So a whole host of near term benefits from such a policy,” says Hawk.The second bill proposed is Senate Bill 910 by Senator Joan Huffman of Houston.She wants this legislation to pass so that Texas can set an example for the rest of the country.“I really believe that if we do it other states will follow, and so that’s why it’s so important for Texas to lead on this issue,” says Huffman.Both legislators are also concerned with the effect tobacco has on the healthcare system.They say it adds 8.8 billion dollars annually to the Texas health care bill.last_img read more

The Biggest Trailers From the 2018 Game AwardsThe Biggest Trailers From the 2018 Game Awards

first_imgStay on target Trade In Your Nintendo Switch For a Better Battery (With a Catch)Get Used to ‘Fortnite’s’ Powerful Mech Suits That’s a wrap for the 2018 Game Awards. Not all of our predictions came true. After Red Dead Redemption 2 swept the early categories, God of War ended up winning the big prize. We were also happily surprised to see SonicFox use his speech to call Republicans the hatemongers they are. However, the easiest prediction every year for The Game Awards is that they will spend more time showing off commercials for upcoming big video games than celebrating past games. And fortunately, not every reveal was leaked ahead of time.Here are the most exciting trailers from the 2018 Game Awards!Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black OrderThe Marvel action-RPG is back! Exclusively on Nintendo Switch! Made by Team Ninja? Probably coming around the same time as Avengers: Endgame. So what does this mean for Square Enix’s Marvel project?Mortal Kombat 11We all knew a Mortal Kombat 11 was coming. But that it’s coming in just a few months, and also on Nintendo Switch, got us hyped for bloody brawls all over again.Crash Team Racing Nitro-FueledBecause you demanded it, they’re remaking the Crash Bandicoot racing game. Hope you’re pleased with yourselves.HadesThe next game from Supergiant Games sure does look like Bastion/Transistor/Pyre. The only thing that gives us pause is its seemingly free-to-play roguelike nature. But see for yourself now on early access.Persona 5 x Super Smash Bros. UltimateThe first non-Piranha Plant DLC fighter for Super Smash Bros Ultimate is Joker from Persona 5. Here’s hoping this means Persona 5 itself also steals its way onto Nintendo Switch soon.Psychonauts 2The weird investment scheme that seems to be funding Psychonauts 2’s development is what really breaks our brains, but this trailer seems to confirm it’s a real game at least.Far Cry: New DawnFollowing-up on Far Cry 5’s dumb nuke ending, we can’t wait to see how Far Cry: New Dawn convinces us two women of color murdering a white man after the end of the world is somehow apolitical.Dragon Age Dread Wolf RisesThis is Dragon Age 4… we guess. Honestly this is one of the thinnest trailers we’ve seen in some time and totally backs up claims this game won’t ready for years.The PathlessThe Abzu developers trade artsy underwater swimming for artsy forest archery.Ancestors: The Humankind OdysseyAny video game that just opens with “Africa” puts me on edge, but this seems to be an intriguing interactive look at the evolution of humanity.The Stanley Parable: Ultra DeluxeThe most meta PC adventure there is comes to consoles for the first time. We just hope it doesn’t make Davey Wreden depressed enough to make enough Beginner’s Guide.The Outer WorldsThe new game from Obsidian would very much like you to remember it was made by the old Fallout guys, not the new Fallout 76 guys.The Last CampfireNow that people like No Man’s Sky again, Hello Games found the time to make another, and hopefully less dangerously overhyped, indie game.Sayonara Wild HeartsThis stylish indie Switch announcement in hindsight should have prepared us for the Smash x Persona reveal.In addition to being on consoles, many of these games announced they will be on PC through the new Epic Games Store. So give a Game Award to Steam for “Game Store Most Under Siege.”last_img read more
