The circumstances of this period in the club, we need to be strong and we cannot complain.“It’s not easy to get to Wembley on public transport, it’s not easy.“Our fans tried to raise the atmosphere but in a 90,000 stadium we’re limited to 51,000.

An overzealous former prosecutor may have hopped state lines to bring him in after a hacker posted an old video of him smoking a bong out of a gas mask to his Twitter account.New Jersey Governor and former presidential candidate Chris Christie joined WFAN’s Boomer & Carton on Friday morning to discuss the draft, and spent a lot of time expressing his bemusement about the Tunsil situation. At one point, the former New Jersey Chief Federal Law Enforcement Officer said that if he were still a prosecutor, he would have “gone in and cuffed” the Ole Miss offensive tackle. Buzzfeed’s Christopher Massie transcribed some of the more interesting parts of the appearance:“It’s unbelievable,” Christie said. “Because the bong hits aren’t enough. Give me the gas mask too. It’s incredible. I can’t take my eyes off it. It’s unbelievable.”Earlier in the interview, Christie, who opposes marijuana legalization, said, “When I was a prosecutor, I would’ve gone in and cuffed this guy,” adding, “I would’ve been all over it.”Christie also expressed sympathy towards Tunsil, saying, “Poor kid in that respect. I mean, he did it. But who’s the guy that hates him enough that they had access to the video and put it on. I mean, wow.”Here is the full interview: [Buzzfeed]last_img read more

Skyscrapers main concern Powerful quakes may wreak havoc in DelhiNCR

Posted in sevjeoym on October 18th, 2019

first_imgNew Delhi: The National Capital region was hit by an earthquake on Tuesday afternoon. The tremors were felt in different areas of the national capital region including New Delhi and Noida.The 6.3 magnitude earthquake struck north-west of Lahore on Tuesday afternoon. The tremors, which lasted a few seconds, were felt at around 4:35 pm in Delhi. The quake forced people living in Noida, Greater Noida, Gurugram and Ghaziabad to come out from their residential and commercial high-rises. However, no causality or major loss was reported in Delhi and the National Capital Region (NCR). Delhi and its adjoining areas fall in the very sensitive Seismic Zone 4. Also Read – Odd-Even: CM seeks transport dept’s views on exemption to women, two wheelers, CNG vehiclesAccording to experts, tremors are caused due to Eurasian and Indian tectonic plates. The geological activity born out of this collision, also responsible for the birth of the Himalayan mountain range, is the cause of unstable seismicity in the region. But the concern remains for the skyscrapers in unplanned urbanisation which can lead to higher levels of destruction during powerful earthquakes. Increased seismic activity at frequent intervals has been posing a threat to the region. Also Read – More good air days in Delhi due to Centre’s steps: JavadekarGeologically, Delhi and its suburbs including Ghaziabad and Noida together form a part of the Indo-Gangetic alluvium, which is filled with silt, sand, and loam. Disaster management experts said that upward areas along Yamuna and Hindon rivers are more vulnerable in case of an earthquake. Experts said that there are more than 50 lakh buildings in Delhi-NCR. Most of them do not have proper safety norms. Buildings close to the rivers are more vulnerable to earthquakes. Close to National Capital is Gurugram, which has many highrises prone to quakes. Tremor strikes city As soon as the earthquake hit the city, the people started informing other known persons through phone calls. People also used social media to share their experience during the tremor. “Just experienced #earthquake in Delhi CP. I sit in 9 floor and for some seconds I thought I experienced dizziness until the second colleague said she experienced it too. #delhiearthquake,” reads one of the tweets related to the earthquake. Another Twitterati tweeted that “Earthquake guys! Quite long. #DelhiEarthquake”. “Experienced an earthquake after 15 years. Failed to understand if I was dizzy or was the building actually moving #earthquake#earthquakeindelhi#delhiearthquake,” another tweet reads.last_img read more

Concerned over social media misuse SC calls for strict guidelines

Posted in vagwindm on October 18th, 2019

first_imgNew Delhi: The Supreme Court has expressed concern over the origin and spread of fake messages on social media platforms like WhatsApp and Facebook and given the Centre three weeks to make recommendations that protect the “sovereignty of the State, privacy of an individual and prevention of illegal activities”.”(The) originator (of fake messages) must be traced. At the same time, the sovereignty of the nation and the privacy of individuals should be maintained. Neither we nor a High Court can decide. It is for the government to come up with a policy,” a two-judge bench headed by Justice Deepak Gupta said Tuesday.

The court had said the matter, to help trace the originator of content, needs to be decided at the earliest. It had said that it would not go into the merits of the case and would only decide the plea filed by Facebook Inc, which is seeking transfer of cases related to Aadhaar linking pending before high courts of Madras, Bombay and Madhya Pradesh to itself.

The Tamil Nadu government in its reply to the transfer petition had claimed that Facebook Inc and other social media companies were not complying with Indian laws, resulting in “increased lawlessness” and difficulties in “detecting crimes”. It had sought a modification of the August 20 order of the apex court directing the Madras High Court to continue hearing pleas for linking social media profiles with Aadhaar but restraining it from passing any orders. The high court is at an advanced stage of the hearing, but due to the apex court’s August 20 order, it deferred the hearing on those petitions, the state government had said.last_img read more

New Delhi Stateowned GAIL India Ltd and its affi

Posted in jklhvrtn on October 18th, 2019

first_imgNew Delhi: State-owned GAIL India Ltd and its affiliates have set a target to provide 11.44 lakh piped cooking gas connections in the current fiscal as they chase what now looks like a highly improbable target of connecting one crore households with environment-friendly fuel by next year. GAIL and its joint ventures such as the ones that retail CNG and piped cooking gas in Delhi and Mumbai had achieved just 60 per cent of the target to give 11.25 lakh connections in the 2018-19 fiscal year, according to company’s target document reviewed by PTI. Also Read – Commercial vehicle sales to remain subdued in current fiscal: IcraIn March 2015, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had pledged to provide piped natural gas connections to one crore households “in the next four years”. India had about 26 lakh households using gas received from a pipeline in the kitchen in 2015 and the government was keen for a massive expansion of piped cooking gas to help cut down the usage of subsidised LPG. LPG thus freed can be used to replace kerosene and forest wood for cooking in rural and remote areas. Also Read – Ashok Leyland stock tanks over 5 pc as co plans to suspend production for up to 15 daysLater, the one crore deadline was pushed back by a year to 2020. But even this delayed deadline now looks improbable to achieve. Together with other private city gas distribution firms, piped cooking gas users in India rose from 42.65 lakh in March 2018 to over 52 lakh a year later. This has risen to 54.17 lakh as on September 1, according to the oil ministry’s Petroleum Planning and Analysis Cell (PPAC). Industry officials said the biggest push for piped cooking gas use would come when entities that have been authorised by Petroleum and Natural Gas Regulatory Board (PNGRB) in two bid rounds in the last one-year start work. When they come on stream, such users will jump many fold, they said. With a licence to retail CNG and piped gas to household kitchens given out for 136 geographical areas or GAs in last one year, the coverage of city gas network would be 70 per cent of country’s population, they said, adding household kitchens getting piped cooking gas would reach 5 crore by 2030 once full rollout is achieved in all the cities licensed. To achieve Prime Minister’s target of 1 crore piped natural gas users by 2020, a massive 45 lakh connections will have to be given in one year. But the biggest city gas distribution group GAIL is only targeting 11.44 lakh in year to March 31, 2020, according to the company document. This target comprises 3.4 lakh new connections each in the national capital region and Mumbai and adjoining towns, and another 1.43 lakh in Pune. This target compares to 11.02 lakh piped natural gas users in the national capital region and 12.77 lakh in Mumbai and adjoining cities, according to the GAIL document. In 2018-19, GAIL and its affiliates had targeted 3 lakh connections in the national capital region (NCR) and Mumbai and adjoining cities. Against this, Indraprastha Gas Ltd issued a record 2.1 lakh connections while Mahanagar Gas Ltd enrolled 1.68 lakh new users. Pune currently has 1.68 lakh users getting piped natural gas in their kitchens. Other cities where GAIL and its affiliates are targeting new users include Kanpur, Agra and Lucknow in Uttar Pradesh, Indore and Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh, Kakinada, Vijayawada in Andhra Pradesh and Hyderabad in Telangana.last_img read more

Posted in sevjeoym on October 18th, 2019

first_imgNew Delhi/Berne: As India steps up its crackdown on suspected black money stashed abroad, Switzerland has issued public notices to former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi and his wife Minal following requests made by Indian authorities about Swiss bank details of the couple.In its latest federal gazette notification on assistance sought by foreign jurisdictions under bilateral treaties for exchange of information on matters concerning suspected financial irregularities, Switzerland’s Federal Tax Administration (FTA) has named Lalit and Minal Modi (alias Minalini Modi) among such individuals. The former IPL commissioner, who is said to have left India for London in 2010, is already facing a money-laundering probe also, though he has denied any wrongdoing. The two separate notifications dated October 1 did not disclose any further details, besides giving Lalit and Minal Modi ten days’ time to designate authorised persons to respond to the assistance request received by the FTA from India. Interestingly, similar notices were issued against the two in 2016, but it could not be ascertained whether the Swiss authorities eventually shared the details with India in that case. That time also, the two were given time for “exercise of the right to be heard”. In recent months, several other Indian nationals have been named in such notifications after Indian authorities approached the Swiss FTA for information about those people concerning the pending tax-related probes against them.last_img read more

Los Angeles Alberto Salazar pushed himself to the

Posted in ucpxsaxg on October 18th, 2019

first_imgLos Angeles: Alberto Salazar pushed himself to the brink and beyond as an athlete, and preached the same philosophy as a coach to distance running stars. But the 61-year-old Cuban-born American’s will to win finally went too far, according to the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), which has banned him for four years for multiple doping violations. Salazar has been a major figure in American athletics for four decades. He won the 1980, 1981 and 1982 New York Marathons and the 1982 Boston Marathon, and later coached such stars as Britain’s Mo Farah, the 2012 and 2016 Olympic champion at 5,000 and 10,000 metres. Also Read – We will push hard for Kabaddi”s inclusion in 2024 Olympics: Rijiju Salazar arrived in the United States as a toddler. His father was a friend of Fidel Castro who fought alongside him in the revolution but later opposed the Communist government. The family moved to suburban Boston, where Salazar won a state cross country crown in 1975. He helped the University of Oregon capture the US collegiate cross country title in 1977, taking national college individual honors the following year. In 1980, Salazar qualified for the US Olympic team at 10,000m, but the Americans boycotted the Moscow Games and Salazar tackled a new challenge: the marathon. He quickly conquered the 26.2-mile (42.195km) event. Also Read – Djokovic to debut against Shapovalov at Shanghai Masters At 22, Salazar won his marathon debut in New York, then set a career-best of 2hrs 8mins 13secs to defend his title. In 1982, he took New York and claimed his only Boston Marathon title in what was dubbed the “Duel in the Sun” with Dick Beardsley. After besting Beardsley in a sprint finish, a dehydrated Salazar collapsed and had to be treated in hospital with intravenous fluids. Salazar finished 15th in the marathon at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, then trained and competed until retiring in the mid-1990s, when he began moving into coaching, joining with Nike to form the Oregon Project in 2001 to train distance runners. The program includes Donovan Brazier — who won the 800m world title Monday as news of Salazar’s ban exploded into the athletics scene — and Sifan Hassan, who won the women’s 10,000m world crown two days earlier. Stripped of his credentials at the World Championships in Doha, Salazar has vowed to fight the ban, which was handed down for violations including trafficking testosterone, tampering with the athlete doping control process and using banned infusion techniques. A four-year ban was also issued to Dr Jeffrey Brown, who was a physician for numerous Nike Oregon athletes, and a paid consultant on performance enhancement for the Project, part of a scheme to manipulate testosterone levels without testing positive. “While acting in connection with the Nike Oregon Project, Mr Salazar and Dr Brown demonstrated that winning was more important than the health and wellbeing of the athletes they were sworn to protect,” USADA chief executive Travis T Tygart said. – Olympic glory, Salazar scrutiny – =================================== Salazar said he was “shocked by the outcome” of USADA’s years-long investigation. Farah won the first Olympic gold for the Nike Oregon Project in 2012 in London in the 10,000m event. Longtime Salazar pupil Galen Rupp took the silver just behind him, and Farah went on to claim the 5,000m gold. But Steve Magness, who spent 18 months as Salazar’s assistant coach in the project before leaving shortly before the London Olympics, spoke out as a whistleblower when BBC’s Panorama and ProPublica investigated doping allegations around Salazar in 2015. Testimonies from various figures alleged microdosing of testosterone, among other suspicious actions. Salazar denied wrongdoing. Farah stuck with him and won another golden double at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics in 2016. Rupp took marathon bronze and Nike Oregon’s Matt Centrowitz won the 1,500m. But doping allegations nagged. Farah left Salazar in October 2017. The USADA case against Salazar and Brown went to the American Arbitration Association, with hearings conducted in May and June 2018 setting the stage for the arbitration rulings handed down Monday. Salazar said he and his athletes “have endured unjust, unethical and highly damaging treatment from USADA,” and claimed, “I have always ensured the WADA (World Anti-Doping Authority) code is strictly followed.” “The Oregon Project has never and will never permit doping.”last_img read more
