Die-hard fans would not mind travelling to Antarctica if an India-Pakistan encounter is to held there, and it doesn’t require innovative brains to market it. It sells automatically it’s the most-sought after cricket encounter in the world. And this was amply evident here as a festive mood prevailed at the packed Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium on Sunday during an Asia Cup match.While Bollywood celebrities descended in Dhaka especially for this game, match tickets were in great demand for the last few days. That everyone was looking forward to this match was also evident from the enhanced number of smalltime vendors outside the stadium who sold flags of the competing countries and painted fans’ faces in the colours of their national flags.Much before the two teams took the field for the crucial Asia Cup encounter there was buzz in and around the stadium that was missing in the four earlier matches. The excitement was palpable from early on as spectators surrounded the venue in Dhaka.Some of the spectators, especially in the Grandstand of the pavilion building, came dressed in their best attire for the occasion – the 124th ODI between the neighbouring countries. Bollywood actors Akshay Kumar, Sajid Khan and a few others film stars watched the action from the ringside. Before the day-night match began, Akshay unveiled the new logo of an Indian mobile manufacturer that is a sponsor of the tournament.Also present during the match were Haroon Lorgat, chief executive of the International Cricket Council (ICC), former ICC president Ehsan Mani, Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Zaka Ashraf besides other top cricket officials.advertisementEvery stroke that Pakistani batsmen, particularly centurions Mohammad Hafeez and Nasir Jamshed, played and later Virat Kohli and the other Indians was warmly appreciated. At times, it was a bit difficult to ascertain which team enjoyed more support, especially from the huge applaud that Tendulkar received from the 26,000- capacity stadium for playing those innovative upper cuts to the boundary.The crowd’s sporting face came to the fore when Tendulkar completed his 96th halfcentury and Virat his 11th ton as both received loud and warm appreciation from the predominantly local fans. As the match progressed the noise seemed to be only increasing.
India’s Rohan Bopanna and his Spanish mixed doubles partner Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez entered the second round after emerging victorious in a hard fought opening round battle against the American-Hungarian duo of Eric Butorac and Katalin Marosi at the Wimbledon tennis championships here.The Indo-Spanish duo won 7-6 (9), 5-7, 7-5 in a lengthy battle that lasted for two hours and 17 minutes on Friday. The two pairs were evenly matched for the better part of the contest, matching each other shot to shot, serving up eight aces each and winning points off their first service, hovering around the 70 percent mark.The similarity was not just confined to that as both teams converted just four of the 12 break points they got (33 percent). That evenness forced the contest into a first set tiebreak where also they were inseparable, with Bopanna-Sanchez claiming it 11-9.But that didn’t put them in the driving seat as they were unable to surge home with the advantage, losing their serve at a crucial phase to concede the set 5-7.The deciding set proceeded on similar lines, but Bopanna-Sanchez rectified their mistakes, converting two of their three break points to edge out their opponents 7-5, hitting 19 winners and claiming 128 of the 244 points played.Bopanna-Sanchez will play the Romanian-Slovenian pair of Horia Tecau and Katarina Srebotnik in the second round. Second seeded mixed doubles pair of Bruno Soares and Sania Mirza also advanced to the second round after getting a first round bye.Seventh seeded duo of India’s Leander Paes and Swiss Martina Hingis also moved to the second round after getting a first round bye.advertisement
Custodian Savita emerged a saviour by blocking half-a-dozen goal-bearing chances as India enhanced their Olympic qualification, following a 1-0 victory over Japan in the fifth-place playoff in the women Hockey World League Semifinals, here on Saturday.The match-winner for India came in the 13th minute from Rani Rampal, who capitalised on a rebound from the Japanese goalkeeper after the initial shot from Vandana Katariya in open play was blocked. But the star of the day for India was Savita, who firmly stood between repeated Japanese raids and the Indian goal, often diving to either side to block firm shots.In the last quarter itself, Japan forced five penalty corners and laid a seize on the Indian circle, but could not get a shot past Savita. The Indians fell back to defend the lead and Savita paved the way for the Indian women to play in their first Olympic Games in 36 years.Indian women’s lone Olympic appearance was at Moscow in 1980. Effectively, India’s fifth spot here should secure them an Olympic Games ticket when the countdown to allocate spots takes place.Three spots each are on offer at both the World League Semifinal competitions, here at Antwerp and in the just-concluded event at Valencia.With five continental event champions being allowed another route, there are likely to be several dual qualifications. In turn, that can open up Olympic spots for nations which do not make the top four of the two World League Semifinals.Germany, Great Britain and China have secured the three Olympic berths from the World League Semifinals in Valencia.advertisementThree teams here at Antwerp will secure their Rio de Janeiro tickets, but South Korea have already earned an Olympic slot by winning the Asian Games gold medal. An African champion could be the only one not to have featured among the top four teams at these two World League Semifinals, opening up more places, even if Olympic hosts Brazil are given a leeway to make the grade.Both in the men and women’s events, Brazil have been allowed a leeway of making the Olympics if they can achieve the fifth place in the Pan American Games. In the women’s event, Brazil are only a reserve team in case there are any withdrawals from the Pan American Games that start in Canada in two weeks.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has taken a swipe at the Sweden national team after confirming that Victor Lindelof played through the pain barrier against Crystal Palace.The 24-year-old played twice during the recent international break, including going the full 90 minutes against Russia having come off at half-time against Turkey through illness.Lindelof was deemed fit enough to start for the visit of Palace, a dull goalless draw with has increased the pressure on Mourinho’s position at Old Trafford.

Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! In the closing stages of the stalemate, the centre-back was in clear pain but with United having made all three of their substitutions, Lindelof played on instead of reducing his team to 10 men.Mourinho told MUTV: “I believe [he is injured]. I have to believe so.“I always say this is the period of the injuries. If they are not injured with the national teams, they come to the clubs and are injured.“He played against Russia three days ago or two days ago, but of course, we need him when he plays.“He was probably our best player. He was a brave lad, but he probably punished himself. “I don’t know how long he will be out, but he is a fantastic example.”The news means Lindelof is a major doubt for the Champions League visit of Young Boys, with games at Southampton and home to Arsenal to follow in the next 10 days.Following a troubling maiden campaign at United, the former Benfica defender has been one of the few positives during an otherwise harrowing season for the club.He has started 11 of the club’s 13 Premier League games, missing out just once against Newcastle in October.
Former Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) Vinod Rai, who heads the Supreme Court-appointed BCCI’s Committee of Administrators (COA), refused to reveal the details of the panel’s almost six-hour-long meeting which took place here on Friday.Rai, who pledged to bring cricket to the doorsteps of the fans in an “undiluted form” on Thursday, preferred to remain tight-lipped on the minutes of the meeting, where Justice (Retd) R.M. Lodha panel’s secretary Gopal Shankarnarayan was also present along with Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) CEO Rahul Johri.”We are not supposed to give the media every minute detail of the meeting,” Rai told reporters.The meeting, also attended by the other three COA members — former Indian women’s team captain Diana Edulji, historian Ramachandra Guha and IDFC Bank Managing Director and CEO Vikram Limaye — revolved around Deloitte’s audit report of various state associations.This was also the first instance when the committee met after Limaye represented the BCCI at the International Cricket Council (ICC) Board meet where the global body led by former Indian cricket board president Shashank Manohar decided to curtail India’s revenue.According to sources privy to the meeting, the COA members will meet again at the BCCI Cricket Centre in Mumbai on February 25.
Do you approve or disapprove of labor unions?That’s the question that was posed to 1,011 participants in a recent Gallup poll, the results of which were released this past Monday.Their answer? Nearly 6 in 10 said that they approved of labor unions.This is significant, as it is the highest approval rating since 2008.But it wasn’t just approval rating that increased. A majority of participants also expressed their desire for unions to have more influence, which is surprising when you consider the fact that union membership has been declining for decades.What do you think, freelancers? Does the recent unionization of Gawker and Vice, as well as the rise of alt-labor groups like the National Domestic Workers Alliance and National Taxi Workers Alliance represent a return to the glory days of the labor union? Or in Sara Horowitz’ words, “Are unions retro cool?” Or is this all just a flash-in-the-pan?

The 18-year-old lioness at the Oklahoma City Zoo — Bridget — is now famous on the internet. The African lioness has baffled zookeepers and veterinary experts, all thanks to her suddenly sporting a ‘mini-mane’.A blog post by the Oklahoma City Zoo said, “Bridget’s mane growth occurred between March and November 2017.”Veterinarians took Bridget’s blood sample last week and are currently analysing it to find the exact reason behind this hair growth.The blog also said that lionesses growing a mane is rare but not unheard of. Maned lionesses have been spotted earlier as well.”In 2011, a 13-year-old lioness at the National Zoo in South Africa began developing a mane. A group of five lionesses in the wilderness of Botswana were observed with manes in 2014,” said the report.Lions grow mane in about a year from birth as a result of increased production of testosterone.Genetic mutation could be a reason for lionesses growing mane. Bridget, however, is the only one in her litter to grow one. A report in the National Geographic said that the reason behind Bridget’s mane could be a tumour growing on her adrenal or pituitary glands, thus affecting her hormones.The Oklahoma City Zoo blog article specifies that Bridget will be closely monitored and that the condition is ‘not likely to affect Bridget’s quality of life’.Also read: Kerala man jumps into lion enclosure in Thiruvananthapuram zoo
Manchester United Manchester United players need to fear someone, says Wayne Rooney Transfer window news Topics Manchester United are confident of a successful summer in the transfer market, with Swansea City’s Daniel James one of the targets identified by Ole Gunnar Solskjær and the recruitment department.James, a pacy wide player, impressed last season, making 40 appearances for Swansea and Wales. He scored a memorable winner against Slovakia in February’s Euro 2020 qualifier on his competitive international debut and United face competition to sign the 21-year-old from other top-six clubs. Share on Messenger Solskjær and Mike Phelan, his assistant, are understood to be working closely with the recruitment department on a plan regarding the players wanted. Those in the department include Marcel Bout, the head of global scouting; Jim Lawlor, the chief scout; and Mick Court, the technical chief scout. Lawlor and Court were key members of Sir Alex Ferguson’s staff before his retirement as manager in May 2013.United hope to appoint a technical director soon – Rio Ferdinand is of interest – and he will also have input into prospective transfers, with the recruitment department and manager retaining a veto to ensure no player can be imposed on the other. Matt Judge, United’s head of corporate affairs, will remain responsible for negotiations.Solskjær is embarking on a sizeable rebuild of the squad after United finished sixth, five points outside of the final Champions League berth and 32 behind the champions, Manchester City.Beyond James or another wide player, the manager is prioritising a central defender and forward, with a left-back and midfielder also on the radar. Reports have linked United with Antoine Griezmann, who is due to leave Atlético Madrid, and Ajax’s Matthijs de Ligt, but the club believe the 28-year-old forward and 19-year-old centre-back will join Barcelona.

India Today Web Desk ChennaiJune 25, 2019UPDATED: June 25, 2019 17:37 IST Nani, Karan Johar and Shahid KapoorKaran Johar is busy with work on his upcoming flick, Takht, but he is working on his production ventures simultaneously. Recently, the filmmaker has secured the Hindi remake rights of Telugu actor Nani’s recently-released film, Jersey.Directed by Gautam Tinnanuri, Jersey is the story of 36-year-old cricketer Arjun, who rises to fame towards the end of his cricketing career. The moving tale of Arjun’s life managed to impress the audience and eventually turned out to be a superhit venture this year in Tollywood.The grapevine has it that Karan Johar is planning to rope in Shahid Kapoor to reprise Nani’s role in the remake. At this point, this is mere speculation and the makers are planning to issue an official announcement once they finalise the cast and crew.Nani’s Jersey is not a regular sports drama and the film had an emotional story that made people tear up. The film also marked Vikram Vedha heroine Shraddha Srinath’s debut in Telugu.India Today reviewer Janani K rated Jersey 3.5 stars out of 5 stars and wrote, “Gowtam Tinnanuri is gutsy enough to have a non-run-of-the-mill ‘ending’ for a sports drama like Jersey. It moves you and makes you appreciate life. Jersey’s success lies in its well-packed screenplay, which will move you to tears in a few places. In a scene, where Sarah and Arjun patch up after a nasty fight, one would just tear up seeing the beautiful relationship they share on screen.”Meanwhile, Karan Johar is upbeat about his film Takht. In an interview to Hindustan Times, the filmmaker said, “It’s a period saga and a spectacle, and will have all the trappings of the genre. But at its heart, it’s a family film which strongly revolves around the emotions of one family. It’s my return to making a strong, emotional and dynamic family film.”advertisementALSO SEE | Jersey Movie Review: Nani and Shraddha Srinath sparkle in excellent sports dramaALSO SEE | Karan Johar reviews Shahid Kapoor’s Kabir Singh: This modern ode to Devdas leaves you spellboundALSO WATCH | Karan Johar says sorry to Pandya and RahulGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

“Most cardiologists have no idea the procedures they perform can cause severe and extremely painful radiation injuries,” Professor of Radiological Physics at the University of Texas Louis Wagner told a two-day meeting at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) headquarters in Vienna. “If a severe radiation burn is caused, more often than not it is then misdiagnosed,” Dr. Wagner said. “A gut-wrenching guess is about one patient per 10,000 receives a severe radiation injury.” Cardiologists from 25 countries attending the meeting ending today were briefed by experts about simple but very effective ways to help prevent, recognize and treat radiation burns, among them ensuring that unnecessary body parts, such as a patient’s arm or breast, are not inadvertently exposed to the X-ray beam. Doctors use angioplasty instead of open-heart surgery to unblock clogged arteries; the procedure involves passing a catheter through the blood vessel to open the blocked artery under fluoroscopic guidance using X-rays. Historically cardiologists have not been trained in radiation protection, and as accessibility to the technology has increased, so has the chances of erythema, or radiation burns from the X-rays used, IAEA Radiation Safety Specialist Madan Rehani said. Depending on the severity of the radiation dose, hair loss could occur or the rash can develop into a painfully sore ulcer, which requires surgical intervention such as skin grafts. “There is also a definite increase in the probability of radiation-induced cancer particularly when such procedures are performed on small children,” Dr. Rehani said. “It is important doctors recognize the symptoms of an X-ray injury,” Dr. Wagner added. Usually a rash will appear a few days or weeks at the exact spot where the X-Ray beam was most directed. “There have been many cases where a patient is told to apply a cream or that it is only an allergic reaction. Doctors are confused and befuddled because the progression of an X-ray injury is not understood,” he said.

Fox’s Joe Carroll beats NBC’s Hannibal Lecter in viewer interest.Last week’s Nielsen Co. ratings make that clear. “The Following,” the gruesome series that debuted on Fox in January, is a hit. With 7.8 million viewers, it was Fox’s most popular program last week after “American Idol” and will be on the network’s schedule for next season when that is unveiled next week.Meanwhile, struggling NBC had a lot of hopes for “Hannibal,” its tale of a better-known fictional serial killer, for its spring schedule. Last week’s episode had only 2.6 million viewers, making it hard to believe the series will last into another season.There may have been room for only one. Fox got “The Following” on the schedule sooner and lined up a big star in Kevin Bacon for a role in the series, and “Hannibal” was unable to catch up.One NBC show that may be on the bubble is “Community,” which had 2.7 million viewers last week. Between that comedy and two that have already finished the season, “Go On” and “Whitney,” it’s likely NBC will pick one or two of them to continue, said Bill Gorman of the website TV By the Numbers, which sets odds for renewals and cancellations.Next week is an annual rite of spring for the networks, when it reveals fall schedule plans and hosts lavish parties in New York for advertisers and the intermediaries that buy commercial time.CBS was the most popular broadcast network last week, averaging 9.2 million viewers in prime time. ABC had 6.7 million, Fox had 6 million, NBC had 5.6 million, Univision had 3.4 million, Telemundo had 1.6 million, the CW had 1.3 million and ION Television had 1.1 million.TNT was the week’s most popular cable network, averaging 2.9 million viewers in prime time. USA had 2.4 million, the Disney Channel had 2.3 million, Fox News Channel had 1.8 million and History had 1.7 million.NBC’s “Nightly News” topped the evening newscasts with an average of 7.9 million viewers. ABC’s “World News” was second with 7.3 million and the “CBS Evening News” had 6.2 million viewers.For the week of April 29-May 5, the top 10 shows, their networks and viewerships: “NCIS,” CBS, 18.29 million; The Big Bang Theory,” CBS, 16.29 million; “Dancing With the Stars,” ABC, 13.45 million; “NCIS: Los Angeles,” CBS, 13.07 million; “Person of Interest,” CBS, 12.96 million; “The Voice” (Monday), NBC, 12.67 million; “Two and a Half Men,” CBS, 12.12 million; “The Voice” (Tuesday), NBC, 11.84 million; “American Idol” (Thursday), Fox, 11.27 million; “American Idol” (Wednesday), Fox, 11.26 million.___ABC and The Disney Channel are owned by The Walt Disney Co.

The Vancouver Police Department on Friday eliminated its online reporting system, saying that it was increasing workloads for police staff instead of lessening it.The online reporting system, which the agency described as a convenient online format, was intended to allow people to enter lower-priority crimes into the same electronic reporting system used by department personnel.Reports were reviewed by staff prior to final approval, and that’s where the extra work came into play.The department assessed the system, which was in place for nearly seven months, and found a significant increase in workload for department staff responsible for reviewing and approving the online reports, the Vancouver Police Department reported.Department personnel were often correcting miscategorized crimes, following up on missing narrative information and directing follow-up for crimes that should not be reported using the online system.The department recently hired additional police service technicians in an effort to be more effective and efficient, increase customer service, and increase police officer services.
