Harry Kane does for England what Beckham and Rooney couldn’t

first_imgHarry Kane put up an inspired performance on Monday as England edged out Tunisia 2-1 in their World Cup 2018 opener at the Volgograd Arena.Kane had scored the first goal for England in the 11th minute but a controversial penalty against Kyle Walker meant Ferjani Sassi brought Tunisia level at 1-1.Thereafter, despite launching a number of attacks and constantly being a threat, England failed to break through the solid Tunisian defence.In the first minute of the injury time, Kane scored a free header to give England a memorable win. With the late winner, Kane scored England first-ever 90+ minutes winner in regular time during a World Cup match.2018 FIFA WORLD CUP: FULL COVERAGENot only did Kane rescue England from what would have been an embarrassing defeat, he also became England’s second highest goalscorer after the first 25 international games.With 15 goals from 25 matches, Kane remained only behind the now-pundit Gary Lineker, who scored 20 goals after playing his first 25 games for England.Also, Kane is the first English player to score two or more goals within normal time at a World Cup game since Lineker against Paraguay in 1986.FIFA WORLD CUP: FIXTURES | POINTS TABLEIn fact, Kane has now scored two goals in his debut match of the World Cup and has already surpassed Wayne Rooney, who had scored just one goal in three World Cup appearances.Interestingly, Kane made his international debut on March 27, 2015 at the Wembley Stadium when he came on as a substitute for Rooney against Lithuania and scored just 80 seconds later off a Raheem Sterling cross.advertisementAlso read – World Cup 2018: Kane, Lukaku star as European nations dominate againSince the time he was first named England’s captain on June 19, 2017, Kane has scored every single time he has captained the country — a statistic that shows his leadership quality.On his captaincy debut during England’s World Cup qualifier against Scotland, Kane had scored an added time equaliser to help England draw 2-2.Also read – World Cup 2018: Harry Kane ecstatic after scoring late winner vs TunisiaYesterday’s late goal was a winner!Kane stooped at the far post to turn in a header in the 91st minute just when it looked like England were going to extend their disappointing run in World Cup tournaments.Also read – World Cup 2018: England coach Southgate labels Harry Kane ‘top striker’After the result, Group G is topped by Belgium, who beat Panama 3-0 earlier while England are second with an equal three points but inferior goal difference.last_img read more

Nunavut afflicted by dire health statistics

first_imgAPTN National NewsNew numbers are confirming what Nunavut residents have claimed for years, that they have the worst health problems in the country.According to numbers published by the Canadian institute for health information, if you live in Nunavut, you are twice as likely to die of something that you could have received treatment.Worse than that, you are three times more likely than other Canadians to die from a preventable cause, like smoking or excessive drinking.The study also pointed out Nunavut’s low rate of mental health treatment, because of few mental health resources in the territory.last_img read more

Amy Johnsons pioneering flight to Australia recreated to inspire others

Amanda Harrison: “I don’t see myself as inspirational. I’m just a normal woman who has never given up.”Credit:Simon Williams/Solo2Darwin Amy Johnson, who became a national heroine in 1930 when she flew single-handed to Australia from London Amanda Harrison and her vintage de Havilland DH82a Tiger Moth Her gruelling flight will take her 9,497 nautical miles across 20 countries, along a similar route to that undertaken by Johnson almost 90 years ago. The only deviations are those forced on her by the need to avoid conflict zones such as Syria and Iraq.In many of the countries where Ms Harrison will stop to rest and refuel women pilots or aircraft engineers are still a rarity and she hopes her arrival will inspire others to follow in her and Johnson’s footsteps.Ms Harrison, who is raising money for her adventure through a Go Fund Me page and local sponsorship, wants to encourage more women to take up jobs in science, technology and engineering, as well as showing that dyslexia sufferers they do not have to be held back by their condition.“Amy Johnson was the first British woman aeronautical engineer, as well as a pilot. She also had health problems and her sister killed herself. But she still went on to achieve, no matter what the obstacles,” she said.Johnson’s trip to Australia was the first of several record breaking flights undertaken by the Hull-born pilot, before her death in disputed circumstances in the Thames Estuary.These included a solo flight from London to Cape Town in 1932, in which she broke her new husband Jim Mollison’s own record. Amanda Harrison, preparing for her solo flight from London to DarwinCredit:Solo2Darwin Amy Johnson, who became a national heroine in 1930 when she flew single-handed from London to Australia Credit:PA When Amy Johnson became the first woman to fly solo from Britain to Australia in May 1930 she blazed a trail for future generations.Now that landmark flight from Croydon to Darwin is to be recreated by a daring British woman in the hope of inspiring others to similar achievements.Amanda Harrison, who overcame severe childhood dyslexia to become a commercial airline pilot, says she wants to show that – like Johnson in her day –  women can achieve whatever they want, despite the obstacles that continue to be placed in their path.The 46-year-old from Bromley will set off next month in a vintage de Havilland DH82a Tiger Moth, similar to the open cockpit Gypsy Moth flown by Johnson. Amanda Harrison: “I don’t see myself as inspirational. I’m just a normal woman who has never given up.” Johnson was killed in January 1941 when she reportedly ran out of fuel and bailed out near Herne Bay, after going off course in terrible weather conditions while transporting a plane from Prestwick, in Scotland, to RAF Kidlington, near Oxford.There has since been continued speculation as to the circumstances of her death, with some claiming her aircraft was shot down by friendly fire from British anti-aircraft guns.Ms Harrison narrowly avoided disaster herself, after she took her 1942 built Tiger Moth, which she had just bought after saving up £70,000, for a check over. The plane has a smaller fuel capacity than the Gypsy Moth, which means Ms Harrison will need to stop more frequently and is aiming to reach Darwin in 32 days rather than the 19 achieved by her predecessor.But if she succeeds she will become the first woman to fly solo to Australia in a Moth biplane since the 1930s.Ms Harrison, whose day job involves flying VIPs on private charter flights around the world, told The Telegraph: “Unlike many of the pioneer fliers of the 1920s and 30s, Amy Johnson wasn’t born into money and had to work for a living and pay her own way. It wasn’t all laid out for her. “But she showed that through perseverance and determination ordinary women could do these things. So if she could do it then I can do it now and so can others.”Ms Harrison’s undertaking is all the more remarkable because in November 2017 she was diagnosed with breast cancer.It took months of major surgery and treatment before she could return to the skies and now she wants to use her flight to inspire other cancer survivors.“Women still seem to have more obstacles put in front of them and we need to encourage women to go for what they dream,” said Ms Harrison, adding: “I don’t see myself as inspirational. I’m just a normal woman who has never given up.” Amanda Harrison and her vintage de Havilland DH82a Tiger MothCredit:Solo2Darwin Amanda Harrison, preparing for her solo flight from London to Darwin Engineers at the Aircraft Restoration Company at Duxford discovered that despite having all the correct paperwork the plane’s wings were no longer bolted on properly and in all likelihood would not have survived the long flight she had been planning.“My father was an engineer who inspired me to take up flying because of his love of building remote control planes,” she said. “So it’s fitting that I owe my life to the engineers who spotted what was wrong.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

British Transport Police adds cycle scheme to benefits offering for 5000 employees

first_imgThe British Transport Police (BTP) has introduced a new cycle-to-work scheme for 5,000 employees.The new benefit, provided by Green Commute Initiative, was implemented in April 2019 to offer employees a greater choice of bikes; traditionally, cycle-to-work schemes allow employees to select a bike up to the value of £1,000, but BTP have set a maximum order value of £3,000. This will enable staff to purchase a push bike, cargo bike or e-bike, depending on their preference.Offered on a salary sacrifice basis, employees are able to make repayments on their bike purchase over a 24-month period. Green Commute Initiative estimates that employees could save 32% on the cost of bike purchase, compared to buying a bike on the high street.The scheme will be available to employees via the BTP benefits platform, Choices. Provided by Protosun Benefits and Capita Employee Solutions, the platform is specifically designed for the public sector and includes benefits such as a home technology salary sacrifice scheme, health and gym memberships, retail offers and personal finance support.The benefit will be communicated to employees using monthly newsletters, and a roadshow has been planned for June 2019.Ian Cordwell (pictured), director at Protosun Benefits, said: “I am delighted that the product offering on the Choices platform has been expanded to include Green Commute Initiative. Those employees wanting to get more expensive bikes can now do so through the scheme. British Transport Police will be the first to benefit from the change and I’m sure [its] staff will be excited by Green Commute Initiative’s excellent scheme.”last_img read more

Navy Again Delays Critical Work On USS Gerald Ford

first_imgThe Navy has again delayed its completion of critical work on the new aircraft carrier the USS Gerald R. Ford, Breaking Defense reported Tuesday.James Geurts, Navy acquisitions secretary, announced the delay, saying the primary issue is its new weapons elevators which are magnet-driven rather than by cables on Nimitz-class carriers. The new elevators can lift thousands of pounds of munitions to the deck more quickly than older carriers.The carrier is billions over budget and months overdue.Two of the carrier’s 11 elevators are currently operational as the ship remains on track for going to sea in October while work on the inoperable elevators continues. It had been slated to sail in July, but that was postponed when it became clear the elevators would not operate.The new elevators are a leap in technology. The Nimitz-class elevators move 10,500 pounds at 100 feet per minute while the Ford-class elevators lift 20,000 pounds at 150 feet per minute.Photo by Mass Communication Specialist Seaman Marissa Bacon ADC AUTHORlast_img read more

Purported Samsung Galaxy S10 photo shows rumored InfinityO display

Sarah Tew/CNET Best Buy In the post, Blass refers to the image as the Beyond 1. Samsung is rumored to have three versions of the S10 code-named Beyond 1, Beyond 2 (or X) and Beyond 0. The Beyond 1 is reportedly the same size as today’s Galaxy S9, but with even slimmer bezels. It’s expected to have a 6.1-inch screen and one front-facing camera. The front-facing camera, at least according to the tweeted photo, uses Samsung’s Infinity-O display, which has a hole punched out of one corner. Samsung used the design in its Galaxy A8S, a phone for China. Samsung declined to comment on the rumors and speculation.  $60 at Best Buy Sarah Tew/CNET DJI’s answer to GoPro’s action cameras is rugged little model that’s shockproof, dustproof and waterproof down to 11 meters.

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.

EPFO to accept PF claims of above Rs 10 lakh offline now

first_imgEPFO to accept EPF and EPS claims offline nowReutersNow, claims for provident fund (PF) withdrawals above Rs 10 lakh can be done offline. Reversing its earlier decision, the Employees Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO) has decided to accept PF withdrawal claims above Rs 10 lakh submitted offline via physical forms.The EPFO, in February 2018, had made it compulsory to file online claims for provident fund withdrawals above Rs 10 lakh. Similarly, it also made mandatory to file online claims for withdrawals of Rs 5 lakh under the Employees Pension Scheme (EPS).In its circular dated April 13, the EPFO said that it has revised instructions to settle claims for EPF and EPS withdrawals. The PF withdrawal claims of above Rs 5 lakh can also be submitted offline now.”Instructions issued on the circular regarding ‘Submission of claims through online mode in case of settlement amount is above Rs 10 lakh’ have been revisited in a meeting chaired by CPFC, in view of the problems faced by members/claimants (including International Workers) in filing online claims,” the EPFO said in the circular.”Considering the grievances raised by members, this stipulation will be kept in abeyance so that offline claims will also be accepted in all cases,” it explained.”However, in view of the need to step up security, claims received online from claimants will be sent online to employers for further verification, only after which the claim will be settled. The employer should return the claim within 3 days to the EPFO office either accepting or rejecting the claim”, the circular added.last_img read more

All govt hospitals medical colleges set to introduce online OPD booking

first_imgKolkata: All government hospitals and medical colleges in the city and the districts will soon implement online booking system for the Outpatient Departments (OPDs) to reduce the long queues which are often found inside the hospital premises.A centralised platform would soon be made functional so that patients from various parts of the state can visit the portal for booking tickets for the OPDs in any of the government hospitals and medical colleges. One of the main objectives of the initiative is to provide patients hassle-free treatment. Also Read – Bose & Gandhi: More similar than apart, says Sugata BoseIt may be mentioned that a large number of patients from various parts of the state visit various OPDs in government hospitals on a regular basis. As a result, the patients often have to stand in long queues before getting a chance to consult a doctor. The online ticket booking system has already been introduced on an experimental basis at SSKM Hospital, where people can book their tickets by logging onto the Health department’s website before visiting the hospital. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataThe state Health department is now planning to introduce a new system, where ticket booking for all OPDs of government hospitals and medical colleges can be brought under one umbrella. According to Health department sources there will be separate windows inside the ticket-booking portal, which will address the different needs of patients across the state. According to a senior Health department official, the patients will be able to book their ticket seven days prior to the date of visit. They won’t have to pay any fees for availing the online service. But in case of a patient visiting the hospital OPD for booking a ticket, he/she has to pay Rs 2 for buying a ticket. There will be separate options for different hospitals and medical colleges. The patients will get to know the details about the doctors of a department as well. They will also be able to register their preferences while booking a ticket. The patients will have to get a printed copy of the ticket once they successfully complete the process online. At the time of hospital visit, the patients will have to submit the printed copy at the designated counters of the hospital.last_img read more
