Kohli and Jayant Yadav played the Englishmen out of the game with their partnership of 241 runs. The Indians came out really aggressive with the ball as they rattled out the openers in 13.2 overs of the second session. It seems really tough for the English batsman now to play through the final day as they have already lost 6 wickets and they still trail by 49 runs.England started off really well in the third session of the day where they started attacking the Indian spinners. Root and Bairstow really scored at a brisk pace which made the Indian spinners thinking. Root, who was towing with the bowlers got out to Jayant Yadav’s classic off spinner which caught him on his front foot. Bairstow played through the session while Stokes gave him a brief company and Ball,who came in as a night watchman was out in the final over of the day.16.33 IST: Ashwin to Ball, OUT! Ball has been worked over! IN, AWAY, STRAIGHT and BOOM! Floated outside off, Ball comes forward to defend but is beaten and gets a faint edge through to the keeper.

Terrific umpiring this time around. Pitched on the stumps, Stokes carelessly goes for a reverse sweep and he manages to find a glove which goes on to hit his boot. The ball bounces of his boot towards the second slip where Vijay is ready to hop onto anything coming his way. England need to find a way out real soon. Eng 400 and 180/5, trail by 51 runs16.15 IST: Ashwin to Bairstow, takes a single to get to his 14th Test fifty. Pitched outside off, Bairstow drags the ball towards fine leg for a single.

Bowls it outside off, comes in sharply, Root plays all around it but is beaten and is hit on his pads. The players go up in an appeal and the umpire gives it out.

The 92-run stand is broken. England 400 and 141/4, trail India (631) by 90 runsWICKET Root’s fine knock is over. He goes for 77, LBW to Jayant Yadav.

Bowls it on middle, Root looks to defend it from his crease but is beaten. The ball lobs to Virat Kohli at first slip, who takes the catch and also appeals. The umpire stays put. Jayant thinks he has his man and Kohli goes for the review. Replays confirm there was no bat there and also the ball was bouncing over the stumps. A bit of desperation there, India have now lost both their reviews. Kohli did suggest that it was a bit high. They have to wait long before they get them back. How costly will this be?advertisement15.07 IST: Jadeja to Bairstow, Bowled on his pads, Bairstow clips it away towards square leg for a single. 100 up for England. 14.42 IST: Jadeja is in the middle of a dangerous spell here.

first_imgFIFA has banned former Nigeria coach Samson Siasia from all football activity for life after being found guilty of accepting an offer to receive bribes in order to manipulate matches.Siasia, who led Nigeria U20 and U23 teams to second-place finishes at the 2015 FIFA U20 World Cup and the 2008 Beijing Olympics, was also fined CHF 50,000 ($51K).The world football governing body confirmed it began an investigation into Siasia on February 11 of this year, which stemmed from an ongoing investigation into attempted match-fixing committed by Wilson Raj Perumal. FIFA determined the 52-year-old Siasia breached article 11 of the organisation’s Code of Ethics, having been found “guilty of having accepted that he would receive bribes in relation to the manipulation of matches in violation of the Fifa Code of Ethics.” Article continues below Editors’ Picks Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? As a result of the verdict, Siasia has been handed an immediate lifetime ban from the sport as well as the additional fine. Siasia played for the Nigeria national team for 15 years, between 1984 and 1999, accumulating 51 caps and scoring 16 goals in his career for the Super Eagles.On the club level Siasia played for teams across the globe, with his longest tenure coming with Belgian side Lokeren, where he featured in 151 matches. He also enjoyed a couple of years with French club Nantes, while also playing in Saudi Arabia and Australia. Following his playing days, Siasia moved into coaching leading Nigeria’s U20 side and later the nation’s U23 side between 2005 and 2010.Siasia was appointed the head coach of Nigeria’s senior team in November 2010, though he lasted less than a year on the job after failing to qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations in 2011. He would return to the national team for a brief spell in 2016, as well as coaching the U23 side during the Rio Olympics. It is unclear during which coaching spells Siasia committed the infractions for which he been banned. Siasia is the second Nigerian tactician after Salisu Yusuf to have been punished as a result of involvement in bribery.

first_imgImagine having to traverse through a riverbed to get to and from your community on a daily basis, or travel for miles using the alternative route when it becomes impassable.That was the reality for hundreds of residents in several communities in North East St. Catherine, when the Dover Castle main road was left impassable following the collapse of a bridge during Tropical Storm Nicole in 2010.The collapsed bridge meant that motorists had to drive through an orange grove to get to the communities of Redwood and Guys Hill.With the Government’s recent construction of a $23.3 million Bailey bridge, the residents’ lives have been significantly changed and they now have easier access to their homes.The single lane bridge, which was officially opened last week, replaces the structure that collapsed two years ago. It serves the communities of Dover Castle, Redwood, Jubilee Town, Golden Grove, Guys Hill and adjoining areas.Speaking to JIS News, resident Devon Morris, says he is extremely grateful. “What dem do today was nice and joyful. Dem see to it that we get a bridge so everything will be alright, we can drive through comfortable,” he says.He adds that without the bridge, “we have a hard time with people coming into the district”.Joined by several other beneficiaries, Mr. Morris thanked the Government and National Works Agency (NWA), for the new bridge.Speaking to JIS News during the official opening, Minister of State in the Ministry of Transport, Works and Housing, Hon. Richard Azan, said the project, which got underway in January this year, was completed within schedule and budget.Works included the construction of gabion baskets; bridge abutments; a rubble retaining wall and approach roads.The State Minister urged operators of heavy duty vehicles to use alternative routes at John’s Pen and Berkshire Hall, as the structure has a carrying capacity of only 50 tonnes.Meanwhile, NWA Communications Manager, Stephen Shaw, says warning signs will be erected shortly to advise motorists of the limited carrying capacity.“Being a 50-tonne structure, we don’t expect to see a trailer going across this bridge because it is not built to accommodate those types of units,” he tells JIS News.Mr. Shaw is urging residents to assist in keeping the structure in place and to ensure that it is not compromised by misuse. “What we would also be appealing to residents to do, is assist us in keeping this very vital piece of infrastructure in place. They are the ones who have been suffering since Tropical Storm Nicole in 2010, when they had to be walking in the river bed, climbing out and then finding their way beyond this point. So they have an interest in ensuring that the bridge stays in place and is not compromised in any way by misuse,” he says.Member of Parliament for North East St. Catherine, Gregory Mair, commended the Government for undertaking the project. “This is a process that was initiated all the way back from 2010 and the present Government made it their business to see it come to its completion. I am very happy for the people in the surrounding areas; finally we got the bridge done. So I think it’s a relief and I am extremely appreciative for the construction of this bridge,” he said.Other works under the project included: river training works 50 metres upstream and 50 metres downstream; realignment of the roadway; and the raising and re-paving of the roadway with asphaltic concrete.The contractor for the project was Aegisco Limited.By Chris Patterson, JIS Reporterlast_img read more

first_imgUNITED NATIONS, N.Y. – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has arrived at the United Nations General Assembly on a mission to remind the world that there’s more to Canadian foreign policy than just Donald Trump and North American free trade.Trudeau is beginning his day at the opening of the Nelson Mandela Peace Summit, where he’s scheduled to deliver brief remarks later this afternoon.He also has a number of bilateral meetings scheduled to take place on the fringes of the assembly.While Canada is keen to resume its efforts to secure a coveted seat on the UN Security Council, NAFTA — the government’s main foreign policy preoccupation for the last year — won’t be far from Trudeau’s mind.Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland, who is also at the UN this week, is expected to hold informal talks with U.S. trade ambassador Robert Lighthizer as the two sides continue to try to reach a trade agreement before a congressional deadline of Oct. 1.Trudeau is also scheduled to attend a meeting of the UN’s economic and social council to talk about how to finance that group’s efforts to advance sustainable development by the year 2030, and attend a roundtable of leaders in girls’ education.last_img read more

Rabat – The UN secretary-general’s personal envoy for Western Sahara has invited Morocco, Algeria, Mauritania, and the Algerian-backed Polisario Front for talks in Geneva.According to AFP, the talks are scheduled to take place on December 4-5.Horst Kohler sent letters to Morocco and the other parties, calling on them to give his a response by October 20. According to a diplomatic source cited by AFP, the talks will come in the form of a roundtable where Morocco, the Polisario, Algeria and Mauritania would decide on the framework of future negotiations.Read Also: Western Sahara: Kohler Meets Algeria, Mauritania FMs at UNDuring his briefing to the Security Council on August 8, Kohler expressed his intention to invite to invite the parties and neighboring countries Algeria and Mauritania to direct talks in late November or early December. Kohler made it clear then that the talks would not touch on substantive issues, but would allow the parties to discuss a general framework for future negotiations. Morocco maintains its firm position on the Western Sahara conflict, considering its proposed Autonomy Plan as a realistic and serious solution to end the dispute over the region.Morocco has repeatedly stressed that there can be no solution to the conflict without Algeria’s involvement. The North African country strongly refuses to hold talks with Polisario, arguing that it “does not have any freedom or independence to make a decision without getting back to Algeria.” Morocco has repeatedly called on Algeria to shoulder its responsibility in the conflict.Morocco’s demands were renewed in a speech by Head of Government Saad Eddine El Othmani at the UN General Assembly on Tuesday.El Othmani also condemned the “tragic” situations of Sahrawis “held” in the Tindouf camps, in the westernmost province of Algeria.However, Algeria has refused any direct participation in the political process, claiming that the conflict should be solved between Morocco and Polisario.Earlier this week, Kohler met with Algeria’s Foreign Affairs Minister Abdelkader Messahel and Mauritania’s foreign minister, Ismail Ould Al Sheikh.Kohler’s meeting could be a move to push Algeria to join the discussion table to reach a political solution to the conflict.Read Also: UN: El Othmani Addresses Algeria, ‘Tragic’ Sahrawi Situation in TindoufAlgeria also hosts hundreds of  Sahrawis in the camps of Tindouf.Algeria has always refused to let the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) to conduct a census to determine the exact number of Sahrawis in the Tindouf camps.On Friday, UNHCR issued a statement in which it confirmed that the official figures used for humanitarian aid for the camps “remain unchanged.”The statement added that its “official planning figure for the most vulnerable Sahrawi refugees in the Tindouf camps in Algeria remains 90,000.” read more

TORONTO — Sun Life Financial Inc. is adding medical marijuana as an option for its group benefits plans, marking an industry shift and the latest sign of growing public acceptance of cannabis.The Toronto-based insurer’s chief executive Dean Connor said the move was influenced by rising interest from Sun Life’s employer clients.“Medical marijuana has become a very important part of their treatment program and pain management program,” said Connor, referencing patients who have cancer, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, or those requiring palliative care.Quebec inks deals with marijuana growers, the first large province to line up supply as legalization loomsCanada’s marijuana heavyweights set sights on the ultimate prize: Conquering the worldSun Life provides health benefits coverage to more than three million Canadians and their families, or one in six Canadians. This comes as the country moves to legalize cannabis for recreational use later this year and as the number of registered medical marijuana patients grows.There were more than 235,000 medical marijuana patients in the system across Canada at the end of September 2017, compared to roughly 98,500 a year earlier, noted Vahan Ajamian, a Beacon Securities Ltd. research analyst.“The insurance companies have been getting pressure to cover this as a regular medicine,” he said.Starting March 1, plan sponsors will have the option to add medical cannabis coverage to extended health-care plans, ranging from $1,500 to $6,000 per covered person per year.Medical cannabis coverage will be available for specific conditions and symptoms associated with cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, HIV-AIDS, and palliative care.Sun Life will also conduct periodic reviews of the growing body of clinical research supporting the use of medical cannabis for other conditions, and update its criteria if necessary, the company said in a document updating their client base.Jonathan Zaid, the executive director of patient advocacy group Canadians for Fair Access to Medical Marijuana, said the enhanced coverage comes after years of litigation to gain this level of acceptance for medical marijuana.“Although there may not be immediate benefit for patients as specific plan sponsors will need to purchase the coverage, this move will make covering medical cannabis simpler than today’s exception process and speaks volumes to the broader acceptance and legitimacy of medical cannabis,” he said.Sun Life’s employer client base includes 22,300 plan sponsors. read more

Ohio State senior defensive end Jalyn Holmes (11) is escorted off the field in the third quarter against Nebraska in Memorial Stadium on Oct. 14. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorInjuries go hand in hand with athletics. Athletes in all sports have to constantly manage them, even if not recovering from injuries, taking the necessary steps to prevent injuries from taking place.Therefore, in order to fully understand sports at Ohio State, it is important to consider the health of the athletes and the people in charge of ensuring an athlete’s safety. Athletic trainers are an ostensibly underappreciated yet critical component to the Ohio State Department of Athletics.Currently, Ohio State staffs approximately 19 athletic trainers, eight interns and two physical therapists. There are also 10 team physicians, four sports medicine fellows, four nutritionists,  several sports psychologists, a dentist and a pharmacist, all of whom collaborate with the athletic trainers. Throughout each season for the sports, an athletic trainer will constantly need to be on site, whether it be at practice or during a game, to be there should something go wrong. Katie Walker, an athletic trainer who specializes in tennis and women’s soccer, stressed just how different the experience is for every trainer based on the injury-risk of the sport.“Soccer, obviously, is a higher-risk sport, from an acute contact injury standpoint,” Walker said. “So with soccer I’m really dialed into what’s going on in the play; people going up for headers, sliding into people.” Walker added that keying in and evaluating an athlete’s current condition while simultaneously judging how an injury impacts the athlete’s play is a necessary skill for an athletic trainer. For example, tennis players would be assessed on their form and their swinging technique in order to see how an injury might be affecting performance.In fact, the process of guiding an athlete through an injury is one of the primary  responsibilities  for any athletic trainer.“Once you start to know your athletes and know their personalities and have treated them through so many injuries, it just becomes fun to watch people you know and to watch people who you helped get back on the court or back on the soccer field,” Walker said. “And that’s really where the enjoyment for athletic training comes from.”Walker said there are multiple steps to addressing an injury during a game. The first action the protocol calls for is evaluating if the injury is major or is a high-risk type of injury.If the injured player is physically capable of moving himself or herself to the sideline, the trainer will move the athlete to the sideline and further evaluate the injury with the available team physician. Treatment such as ice or taping then might be applied on the field to reduce recovery time.After the game, more in-depth treatment like crutches or walking boots would be applied in the athletic training facilities. Documentation is the final step, as all athletic trainers must report any sort of injury into their computer medical database. Preventing injuries is another key component to an athletic trainer’s arsenal. The term “prehab” is used among athletic trainers  to describe preventing future injuries with players who are currently rehabbing. Walker said prehab consists of working with strength and conditioning coaches to incorporate exercises that focus on building muscle in areas with high-risk injuries, such as ACLs and shoulders. Athletic training also relies heavily on being updated with equipment and technology. Like any medical field, having the best techniques and technology allows for quicker recovery and eases an athletic trainer’s job.Women’s soccer uses Polar Team Pro heart rate and GPS monitors in order to track cardiovascular and muscle stress.  Another technology utilized is Omegawave, which is a system of electrodes that calculate changes in heart rate, which aids with recovery. Omegawave can also highlight any cardiovascular discrepancies that might impact an athlete’s ability to play.Other techniques and equipment are vastly improving and the idea of unique improvements to the athletic training field is being constantly recognized every year. The concept of athletic training is much more than simply concussion protocols and taping ankles. Although they might not be starring in any of the hype videos or postgame interviews, the athletic training staff are essential for keeping Ohio State’s athletes continually performing at high levels. read more

first_imgTurkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan thanked Greek Prime Minister, Alexis Tsipras for the Greek Governments stance, regarding the attempted coup that shook Turkey on Friday, resulting to a death toll of more than 250 people.  Tsipras had expressed his “support for the democratically elected” Turkish government, a statement he repeated in his telephone conversation with President Erdogan, stating that it is a matter of principle for the Greek people to respect the values of democracy and constitutional law.The two men also discussed a more pressing issue – the Turkish Government’s request for the extradition of the eight military officials who fled to Greece by helicopter, in the light of the failed coup. The Greek PM reasured the Turkish President that Greece will swiftly examine the asylum requests, with respect to the international law and human rights conventions. The eight men –  three majors, three captains and two sergeant majors – were on board a Black Hawk military helicopter, which landed in Alexandroupoli on Saturday after sending a distress signal to the airport authorities.  No sooner  had the helicopter landed, than Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias was on the phone with his Turkish counterpart, Mevlut Cavusoglu, pledging “Athens’ support to Turkish peoples struggle for democracy and defence of the constitutional order”.After being led to the local police station of Alexandroupoli, the eight men submitted a request for political asylum from Greek authorities. Their lawyer claims they did not take part in the failed coup against Erdogan, but decided to leave, when policemen started shooting against them and they were afraid for both their own and their families. She added that they are all “in a bad mental state”.The eight men were presented before the public prosecutor in Alexandroupoli, facing charges for illegal entry in Greece. Meanwhile, Greek spokesperson Olga Gerovasili told Greek state broadcaster ERT that Greece will examine the asylum requests as dictated by international laws, taking “very seriously into account that they participated in an attempt to overthrow the democratic regime and the constitutional order in the neighboring country.” Around 300-400 members of the Muslim minority of Greece, meanwhile, staged a demo outside Alexandroupolis airport calling for the “traitors” to be sent back, echoing the Turkish Foreign Minister, who appeared in the Turkish media, and said: “We have requested Greece to extradite the eight traitors as soon possible”. However, no official request has been made yet, and the eight men are still in detention. Another “Black Hawk” landed in Alexandroupoli on Sunday, this time in accordance with the Greek National Defence Ministry, carrying the personnel that is set to fly the helicopter back to Turkey.  Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

first_imgThe Clark County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office is experiencing a nationwide firestorm after a Vancouver man accused of raping a 15-year-old girl was offered a plea deal and sentenced Wednesday to 90 days in jail.Chief Criminal Deputy Prosecutor Camara Banfield said she’s received numerous calls and emails from people, including victims of sexual assault, from across the country. The Columbian’s Thursday story — “Man accused of raping girl, 15, gets 90 days” — garnered dozens of comments online and hundreds in other places, and was shared by news outlets, such as The Seattle Times.The defendant, Efrain Marcos Rodriguez III, 27, entered an “in re Barr” plea in Clark County Superior Court to communicating with a minor for immoral purposes. The plea allows a defendant to plead guilty to a lesser related charge he didn’t commit in order to avoid conviction for a greater offense. The original charge of third-degree child rape was amended as part of a plea deal. Rodriguez was sentenced to 364 days in jail, with 274 days of the time suspended for two years. He was given credit for 89 days in custody.Banfield has spoken with many concerned community members, she said, and believes that they deserve to have more information about the prosecuting attorney’s office’s policies on sexual assault, particularly when it comes to children who have been victimized.“Our victims come first. We may make decisions they don’t like — not in this case — but it’s for their well-being,” she said. “We do believe this was the best result. This is what the victim wanted.”last_img read more
