They should be finishing in the top three with that squad, that’s where they should be, there’s no doubt about that in my opinion.”But to get to a Champions League final was great for them. It was great to see them reach the final. “At the start of the year I really thought Spurs would push Man City and Liverpool a lot, lot closer. Tottenham have got a great team, with Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Son – I thought this could be their year. “But it’s been a disappointing start for them for sure and they need to turn it around quickly, but I still think they’ll finish third.” last_img read more

Bill Simmons Tried To Troll Oregon, Failed Spectacularly

Variety key to succeed in T20 cricket Varun Aaron

first_imgNew Delhi: Rajasthan Royals pacer Varun Aaron feels the gentleman’s game is changing swiftly as batsmen today have many innovations in their kitty to cope with the bowlers. As a result, he feels that the bowlers should also come with new tricks and techniques, a thing he has focussed on in recent times. After being on the bench for most of the first-half, Aaron bowled a magnificent spell against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and played an instrumental role in his side’s three-wicket win. The Jharkhand pacer hogged the limelight after bowling an excellent inswinger to get rid of KKR opener Shubman Gill, who was completely beaten by a brilliant in-swinging knuckle ball. Also Read – We will push hard for Kabaddi”s inclusion in 2024 Olympics: RijijuThe delivery from Aaron took a sharp turn and crashed into the stumps after taking a slight edge from Gill’s bat. Aaron felt the variations in his bowling is a result of his hard work and the better understanding of the game. The 29-year-old admitted that not featuring in the IPL last year helped him improve his bowling variations. “I think not playing IPL previous year really benefitted me. I used to do these (variations) all things before but as I had to play regular cricket, I didn’t get enough time to perfect it to the degree I wanted. Playing county cricket last year and getting lot of time from the mainstream Indian cricket gave me that time and platform to practise and perfect my variations. Also Read – Djokovic to debut against Shapovalov at Shanghai Masters”I really enjoyed my time with Leicestershire. Yes, I am looking to play more county cricket,” he added. Aaron also believed the game of cricket is changing and along with the batsmen, bowlers also need to emerge with innovative ideas. “My bowling has evolved in the last one year. The game is changing rapidly as batsmen are coming with innovative shots and I feel the bowlers also need to step up and should have tricks under their sleeves, a thing which I have worked on since a while and I am glad it is coming out well now,” he revealed. Asked about not being given enough chance in the playing eleven of the Royals, Aaron said: “Yes, I was given a chance after ten games and was really looking to play since the start of the season. I did get a game before but just bowled one over. I was waiting for this chance and had been preparing from a long time.” Speaking on the wicket of Gill, which grabbed everyone’s attention, he said: “I just stuck to the basics and knew the Eden (Garden) wicket was going to suit the way I bowl because there was pace and carry. I bowled a knuckle ball as I knew it would swing with the new ball. I had been bowling it for quite some time. I just feel that it happened at the right time and the wicket also helped.” Aaron however, didn’t looked disappointed after not getting much chance. “I wouldn’t say I was disappointed as in any team the management thinks of certain permutations and combinations to win a game and if they thought of making other guys play, that is fine because at the end of the day it is their call.” “I still feel we have a good chance to qualify and if I can play a major role in making my team win the trophy, missing the first ten matches wouldn’t matter,” he added. The Royals had switched captains mid-way during this season as Ajinkya Rahane had to make way for Steve Smith but Aaron said their below par performance was not because of leadership. “Both Smith and Rahane are really good captains. We didn’t do well in the first half and I don’t think that was because of leadership issue. We lost games by small margins and a captain can’t control that,” he said.last_img read more

Can be differences in ideology but PMs post must be respected Krishna

first_imgKolkata: There can be differences in ideology but one should respect the prime minister’s post, former TMC MP and Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s kin Krishna Bose said, amid a war of words between Narendra Modi and Mamata Banerjee. The octogenarian said Modi, too, should not forget that state governments are elected and have powers. “I may not agree with the ideology of the BJP but as long as Narendra Modi is the elected prime minister of the country, I have to be respectful towards him. I will respect him as the PM of the country but not as the head of a political party with whom I do not agree,” Bose told PTI in an interview. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari Puja Referring to Modi’s “speed-breaker didi” jibe at Banerjee and her “expiry prime minister” retort, the former four-time Lok Sabha MP said the remarks were absolutely unnecessary. “I do not take it only as a part of a speech of an election campaign saying who is a speed breaker or who is not a prime minister at all. It is much more serious than that… But I do not think such comments should not have come from both the sides… Otherwise a federal government will not be able to function properly. Both the governments are elected ones,” she said. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highway When pointed to the BJP’s allegations that Banerjee was appeasing the Muslims in West Bengal, Bose said leaders should refrain from blaming head of another elected government. She said “everyone should remember that India is a multi-lingual, multi-cultural and multi-religious country and if you do not follow that ideal then you cannot really rule India. In that way, Modi has to remember this and not blame others for what they are doing or not doing”. “And if you are talking about appeasing the Muslims, that is not new but it had been going on for a very very long time and that is why the community is left behind. Had the political parties thought of the real good of them then something else should have been done,” she said. She said how can one just blame Banerjee. “Everybody has been doing it. Everyone is questioning it at the time of the elections. I cannot blame Mamata for that,” Bose opined. On the rise of the BJP in West Bengal, Bose reasoned the growing dissatisfaction among the people of the state with the TMC government. Bose claimed Mamata has done certain good things for the development of West Bengal, but all her good work has been spoilt by some people around her. “People here are also unhappy with two things, the syndicate and secondly that they could not vote in the last panchayat election held here. The present government should have taken strong steps,” Bose said. She added the BJP was quickly filling up the vacuum in the state created by little presence of the CPI(M) and the Congress. Bose, however, was critical about the manner the ruling Trinamool Congress was “trying to stop” the rise of the BJP in West Bengal. “Today’s ruling party in Delhi has a particular ideology. They say it openly. They want Hindutva. But in Bengal, the manner we are trying to stop that by competing with them is not the way.Think of Netaji and Gandhiji and how they fought this thing by not competing,” Bose said. When asked whether the Election Commission was biased towards the BJP-led central government, Bose said, “The EC, the judiciary, the Army never came into our political process. The EC must be free, independent, so it can do whatever it wants to. These were checks which had kept the election alive”. The EC had curtailed the campaigning on Thursday, a day before its scheduled deadline, in the wake of violence between BJP and TMC workers in Kolkata during a rally of BJP chief Amit Shah. “By what is happening, it seems they are unable to control the situation. It looks like they are either afraid of being independent or they are partisan to different parties in different situation,” she said. Bose said if bodies like the EC gets “diluted and were not allowed to function independently” then the future was not far away when this would become a “threat to the Indian democracy”. “Now you sort of dilute these bodies and if the EC is afraid to do their own work and do not have the independence or they fall to such a level that they listen to certain parties then you cannot keep democracy any more and free and fair elections now look like a joke to us,” she pointed out. Bose, who has witnessed polling since the first elections in the country, questioned the need of deploying central forces almost in every polling booths in West Bengal. “Why should we at all need central forces or police or the state police. This itself means that we are unable to control the election and organise a free and fair polling. I have been seeing the elections since 1952 and at the beginning we did not have these problems. “In a democracy, people want free and fair elections. But that is not happening. Our Constitution is very good and that is the reason we could keep our democracy intact for so long. But I am sceptical for how long our democracy will be intact,” she said. On the chances of ‘Mahagatbandhan’ (grand alliance), Bose said, “I believe they definitely have a chance. I cannot deny that, but we have to wait for that. But if they come together and preserve unity and not fight among themselves I think they may have a good future”. More than 20 parties had come together during a rally hosted by the Trinamool Congress in Kolkata in January, vowing to defeat the Bharatiya Janata Party in Lok Sabha polls.last_img read more

Ohio State mens basketball hangs on vs Illinois 7573 for 6th straight

OSU junior forward Marc Loving (2) celebrates during a game against Air Force on Dec. 8 in Columbus. OSU won, 74-50. Credit: Samantha Hollingshead | Photo EditorThe Ohio State men’s basketball team extended its win streak to six games Sunday, as it defeated Illinois 75-73 in a close-fought conference matchup in Columbus. OSU survived the Fighting Illini’s 3-point barrage in the second half, narrowly escaping as Illinois’ last-second heave bounced off the left side of the backboard. After the game, OSU coach Thad Matta said he was impressed by Illinois’ performance, as the visitors played OSU tough up until the final whistle.“I thought Illinois played very, very well,” Matta said. “They hit some of the (timeliest) shots that I’ve ever seen. Give our guys credit, (because) a few weeks ago we would have probably crumbled, but we kept our composure, we kept fighting.” The Buckeyes were led by the play of junior forward Marc Loving, who had 27 points and seven rebounds. The win pushes the Scarlet and Gray’s record to 10-5, including a 2-0 mark in the Big Ten.Matta said getting high-level play from Loving, the most experienced player on the team, is essential to the team’s success. “Marc was very, very efficient tonight,” Matta said. “I think he kind of had a huge three in the corner, but also was able to put the ball down on the floor, got to the foul line. Marc has had a really, really good focus the last few games and, as your lone upperclassman on a basketball team, you hope that’s something we can continue to ride on.” OSU was able to ice the game at the free throw line, shooting 28-of-39 from the stripe for the game. Both teams were in foul trouble early in the second half, much to the disdain of Illinois coach John Groce.“We’ve got to play a lot harder without fouling,” Groce said. “That’s the highest number of free throws an opponent has shot against us all year and that was the difference in the game.” Groce’s team only made 12 of 32 3-point attempts, and overall OSU held Illinois to 40 percent shooting from the field. Matta said although the defense is not be where he ultimately wants it to be, he is happy with the way the defense is playing.“I think that we’re getting there,” Matta said. “The thing that I would say that I’m not pleased with is we made some mistakes and they made us pay for them tonight. Those are things that are happen. I do think we’re understanding scouting more. We’ve got to continue to build it, but I like the direction we’re headed with our defense.” For OSU, the first half was one to forget, as the team was held to only 32 percent shooting from the field, thanks to the 2-3 zone Illinois employed. The rough first half, however, could perhaps be attributed to the absence of freshman point guard JaQuan Lyle, who picked up two fouls in the opening two minutes of play. The Buckeyes clung to a 30-26 lead going into halftime, looking for improved results in the second frame.OSU found those results with Lyle back on the court. With their starting point guard leading the offense, the Buckeyes returned to form in the second half — seeing a near-instant improvement. With Lyle running the show, OSU shot 52 percent from the floor in the second half.“I couldn’t be happier with the way (JaQuan) played,” Matta said. Lyle said he was disappointed to pick up two quick fouls and put his team in a bind early on, but knew when he came back in the second half, he would have a chance to lead his team to victory. “My mindset was that I was fresh,” Lyle said. “Everyone else had been playing the whole first 20 minutes so I took advantage of that. My legs were fresh and I made a couple of layups. Then I just started making plays.” Lyle poured in 14 points and a team-high 5 assists — all in the second half — for OSU.The Buckeyes, now on a hot streak with six straight wins, will move to face Northwestern on Wednesday in Evanston, Illinois, which Matta said will be a good test for his basketball team.“We’re going to see where we are,” Matta said. “The last road game against (Connecticut), we were awful. It will be interesting to see how we come out to start that game. Northwestern is playing some great basketball right now and it’s always a tough place to play.”Tip-off against the Wildcats is set for 9 p.m. read more

Doubledown Unable to Sell Magazine Assets

first_imgAt an auction held late last week in U.S. bankruptcy court in New York, Doubledown Media, a publisher of magazines aimed at the Wall Street elite that went out of business in February, did not receive any “acceptable” bids for its remaining magazine assets, including subscriber lists.“One bidder made an offer but it was not acceptable to the trustee,” Andrea Fisher, a senior attorney with Squire Sanders & Dempsey—the firm representing Doubledown’s trustee—told FOLIO:. “The trustee will continue to entertain offers for the assets. We’ve received some inquires and the hope is that the assets sell, which will provide a distribution to [Doubledown’s] creditors.”According to the auction notice, the minimum bid for Doubledown’s Dealmaker was $100,000. For Corporate Leader and Trader magazines the lowest acceptable bid was $50,000. The minimum bid for Cigar Report was $25,000. Corporate Air, meanwhile, carried a minimum bid of $55,000. Doubledown previously received an offer from a company called Private Air Media—which is headed by the magazine’s founder Dee Dee Morrison—and Knight Images Inc., for $50,000.The minimum bid for all five titles was $300,000, or the aggregate amount of the highest bids for each property plus $20,000, the notice said.A Once-Rising Publisher Hits BottomCiting “unprecedented times,” Doubledown went out of business in February and filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy liquidation not long after. “The combination of the media depression, the Wall Street implosion and the credit slowdown were collectively too much for our company—probably any company in our shoes—to overcome,” president Randall Lane wrote in an e-mail to staffers at the time.According to court documents obtained by FOLIO: this spring, more than 350 claims totaling $4 million have been made against Doubledown, including those from a group of ex-employees, investors, three printers, vendors, designers, writers, lawyers and more. Nearly half of Doubledown’s assets include $1,013,520.43 in accounts receivable—money Doubledown has yet to be paid.In terms of the bankruptcy proceedings, the sale hearing has been adjourned until October 6, Fisher said.last_img read more

Childcare Important to Readiness Navy Marine Leaders

first_img ADC AUTHOR Providing affordable childcare is becoming a “conundrum” for the military in some areas but is crucial to readiness and retention, Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy Russell Smith said Thursday.“A lot of people have tried to bin this and call it a woman’s issue. It’s not,” Smith said, according to USNI News. “We have single fathers, single mothers, dual-income, dual-working couples. It’s a family issue.”He spoke alongside Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps Ronald Green on a panel at the Center for Strategic and International Studies hosted by the U.S. Naval Institute.Green agreed and noted a greater percentage of service members have children than when he and Smith first enlisted.But when appropriations are tight, the services are forced to focus on other issues, Green said.“You’re going to put money toward being ready and being lethal,” Green said. “When you have to take funds from other places, it normally comes from infrastructure sustainment, research and development, the programs that support families. Because we must be prepared to fight. We must do that.”U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Crystal A. Jenkinslast_img read more

State Rep Dave Robertson His Colleagues Help Tewksbury Take Official Possession Of

first_imgBOSTON, MA — Below is a recent press release from State Representative Dave Robertson’s office:August 2nd, 1967 was the beginning of a long story between Tewksbury, the State, and a piece of land bounded by Livingston Street and forever deeded for recreational purposes. Transferred under Act 497, the Now, 53 years later, the parks, fields, and trails known as Saunders Field are officially part of the town of Tewksbury thanks to the work of the state delegation and town.“As a child I played, or tried to play, baseball on those fields. I watched the 4th of July there, rode my bike from the Middle School to the recreational department, and even attended the haunted house,” said Representative Dave Robertson (D-Tewksbury) upon the transfer of the deed to the town. “The entire time I had no idea that it was not officially town land until I was older, which left me perplexed. Because of this it was a special honor to work with Senator Finegold and Nguyen on getting this issue wrapped up and securing Livingston permanently for the town.”“Transferring the Livingston Street Fields back to the Town of Tewksbury was one of my top priorities upon coming into office in January,” added Senator Barry Finegold (D-Andover). “Working together with Representatives Nguyen and Robertson, we were able to resolve a decades-old issue in a matter of months. These 35 acres are invaluable to the community, and I’m thrilled that they will now be officially owned and controlled by the town.”“I am very proud to work on behalf of the residents of Tewksbury with my colleagues,” noted Representative Tram Nguyen (D-Andover). “I am especially delighted that we were able to work together to get the deed transferred and make certain that the Livingston Street Fields that the residents of Tewksbury have long enjoyed now officially belong to the town.”The Saunders Recreational Fields, often known to locals as the Livingston Street Fields, are the crowning jewel of the Tewksbury park system. Encompassing 35 acres the land is host to tennis courts, lacrosse fields, football fields, the majority of baseball fields, and more. Recently the town and state have recently made major investments into the center, including the opening of a water park and fitness court, with state budget funding allocated to the improvement and upgrade of parking amenities for those using the unimproved lots. The fields are also utilized for large-scale community events, such as the 4th of July, and are the most frequented recreational area for the town.“This is great for the town,” said Selectman Jay Kelley. “We have great programs and opportunities, and this helps secure a future for our town. I look forward to seeing many more generations of kids growing up and playing there.”Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook. Follow Wilmington Apple on Twitter. Follow Wilmington Apple on Instagram.

Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution. Share your voice Use promo code 19LABOR10 to get an unusually good deal on JBL’s interesting hybrid product — not quite headphones, and not quite a traditional speaker, but something you wear like neckphones to listen to music on the go. Phones,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page. An Echo Dot makes a fine match for any Fire edition TV, because you can use the latter to say things like, “Alexa, turn on the TV.” Right now, the 24-inch Insignia Fire TV Edition starts at just $100, while the 32-inch Toshiba Fire TV Editions is on sale for $130. Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free. The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price. Though not technically a Labor Day sale, it’s happening during Labor Day sale season — and it’s too good not to share. Nationwide Distributors, via Google Express, has just about the best AirPods deal we’ve seen (when you apply promo code ZBEDWZ at checkout). This is for the second-gen AirPods with the wireless charging case. Can’t imagine these will last long at this price, so if you’re interested, act fast. 7 $59 at eBay $999 TVs Speakers Mobile Accessories Cameras Laptops Automobiles Smart Speakers & Displays $299 at Amazon Comments See at Amazon Turo is kind of like Uber meets Airbnb: You borrow someone’s car, but you do all the driving. I’ve used it many times and found it a great alternative to traditional car-rental services — in part because you get to choose exactly the vehicle you want (not just, say, “midsize”) and in part because you can often do pickup and dropoff right outside baggage claim.Between now and Sept. 1, the first 300 people to check out can get $30 off any Turo rental with promo code LDW30. Spotify and most other streaming services rely on compressed audio, which robs the listener of full fidelity. Enter Tidal, the only “major” service that delivers lossless audio — meaning at least on par with CD quality, if not better. Want to see (er, hear) the difference for yourself? Grab this excellent extended trial while you can. It’s just $6 for three months, and it’s good for up to six listeners. $155 at Google Express Sprint HP Laptop 15t Value: $520 (save $780) See at Turo Mentioned Above Apple iPhone XS (64GB, space gray) Rylo Rylo 5.8K 360 Video Camera: $250 (save $250) JBL Soundgear wearable speaker: $90 (save $160) Apple AirPods with Wireless Charging Case: $155 (save $45) The Galaxy S10 arrives Feb. 20 but the photos are here now There are many, many rumors about Samsung’s next flagship phone, the Galaxy S10.
