first_imgGuwahati, Oct 21 (PTI) India captain Virat Kohli on Sunday hailed his deputy Rohit Sharma for his superlative batting display, saying it is easy to chase down any target when the Mumbai batsman is at the other end. Kohli (140) and Rohit (152 not out) shared a massive 246-run partnership for the second wicket as India mowed down a challenging 323-run target with 7.5 overs to spare. “It feels pretty good. It was very convincing for us. West Indies put up a really good total. 320 targets are very tricky, but we knew we could do it with a big partnership. It’s never too difficult when you have Rohit at the other end,” said Kohli. “Among the top three, I mostly take the anchor role because both Rohit and Shikhar (Dhawan) are good stroke-makers,” he said. Kohli was adjudged man-of-the-match for his 107-ball knock and the India skipper said he enjoyed his batting today. “It was one of those days where I felt good and I told Rohit I will continue to bat this way positively and maybe you can play the anchor role,” he said. Kohli said building partnerships is the key to success in ODI cricket. “When (Ambati) Rayudu came he took that role and Rohit took over from me. I think that’s what ODI batting is all about. It’s about communication and batting in partnerships,” he said. “It’s our 5th or 6th double-century partnership, it’s a pleasure to bat with him (Rohit). When we are batting like that, it’s good fun out there and we know the team will benefit from it as well.”advertisement The India captain refused to be too harsh on his bowlers for leaking runs but said they could have bowled much better at the death. “You got to be honest to the sport and that is when the sport gives you back. It’s difficult to contain when a side like West Indies bats like that. I don’t want to be too harsh on the bowlers, but yes, we could have applied a bit better and bowled better in the last few overs. That is something to learn for us,” Kohli said. West Indies captain Jason Holder too felt the pair of Kohli and Rohit took the game away from the visitors with their scintillating batting display. He also praised young Shimron Hetmyer, who scored 106 off 78 balls to propel West Indies to the total. “Pleased with the guys for the batting effort. Hetmyer batted exceptionally well. We needed to be a lot more decent with the ball. Probably we got a par score,” he said. “(But) credit to Kohli and Rohit for taking the game away from us. Oshane (Thomas) is one of the exciting talents we have got. Hopefully we can play better in the second game.” PTI SSC ATATlast_img read more

first_imgJofra Archer did not find a place in England’s preliminary World Cup squad but the uncapped all-rounder is determined to impress in the one-day series against Pakistan and break into the final team in case there is an injury in the 15-man side.Archer was omitted from the preliminary World Cup squad on Wednesday but got his maiden England call-up for the warm-up games against Pakistan and Ireland next month. Injury replacements for the showpiece event can be named until May 23.Barbados-born Archer, who is eligible for national selection under new England and Wales Cricket Board residency rules, said he was surprised by his quick elevation.”I thought I would have to wait a couple more years before I would be in contention for the full squad, I thought I would have to play for (England) Lions,” the all-rounder, currently playing for Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League, told reporters.”I was fully prepared in my mind that it was going to be a seven-year job. When I found out I was qualified more quickly it was obviously a bit of a shock but also exciting.”While the 24-year-old has admirers in England regulars Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler, Chris Woakes said it would be unfair for England selectors to ask any player to make way for the uncapped Archer.”I understand the situation and I’m very happy with everything. I don’t want to step on anyone’s toes,” said Archer, whose ability to bowl at more than 90 miles per hour and power-hitting make him a limited-overs asset.advertisement”I’m not in the World Cup squad but it’s a great chance for me to show what I can do and anything can happen. If someone gets injured, I want to put myself in a position where I’m the first person they turn to.”I’m going to give it my best shot. I’ve worked pretty much all my life for this moment and I just want to tackle it and put my best foot forward.”Even if he is not eventually picked in the final World Cup squad, the 24-year-old said it was not going to be the end of the world.”Of course I want to play in the World Cup, but if it doesn’t happen for me I’m not going to get upset.”England play Ireland in a one-day international on May 3 before a five-match ODI series and a Twenty20 against Pakistan.

first_img How to Grow and Maintain Stubble Editors’ Recommendations Nothing dries out your hair and skin like the dreary months of fall and winter. Wind, cold, and indoor forced-air heating all do a number on the derm. Dandruff acts up, your face gets flaky, and, oh, your poor beard! Never fear, because there are a number of great beard oils out there that will keep your whiskers looking fresh and moisturized all year long — and if you’ve never used a hot oil beard treatment before, you’re missing out.We asked master barber Michael Haar to fill us in on the benefits of such an application and his top product recommendation: the Proraso Hot Oil Beard Treatment.“It’s an intense, nourishing treatment for even the wiriest, driest beards. It hydrates, nourishes, repairs, and promotes healthy growth, using ingredients such as glycerin, eucalyptus oil, and aloe. It will leave the beard healthier and softer, feeling invigorated, and smelling great,” he says.The Manual: Tell us more. How long does your beard have to be? Do you need a full fluffy beard or can you treat scruff? Michael Harr: You can use the Hot Oil Beard Treatment on a long, full beard or scruff. Simply adjust the amount of oil you use – half a vial or so for a shorter beard, and a full vial for a long, full beard. The oils are super nourishing and promote healthy growth, so they help the beard grow in smooth and hydrated, and help repair and condition fuller beards in need of some extra TLC.TM: Can you describe, from start to finish, how to use Proraso Hot Oil Beard Treatment in order to get the best results?MH: To use, immerse the product vial into a bowl of hot, but not boiling, water for one minute. Next, dampen your beard with warm water and rub oil into the beard, working the treatment from the root to the tips. Leave the treatment on for at least two minutes and then rinse thoroughly. TM: Is the treatment good for the skin underneath your beard?MH: The Hot Oil Beard Treatment contains many ingredients that are valuable to the skin, like aloe, which soothes, moisturizes, helps promote healthy hair growth, and protects; and glycerin, a humectant, which helps draw in, and protect from loss of, moisture.TM: What can you tell us about the scent? MH: The Hot Oil Beard Treatment has a warm, woody scent of cedar wood and Mediterranean cistus (rock rose) with a hint of fresh and invigorating menthol and eucalyptus.TM: How often should you condition your beard with hot oil?MH: You should condition your beard as needed. Be sure to ask your barber how dry or brittle your beard feels to them. Very wiry beards may need to be conditioned with hot oil every week or so, but others may only need to apply it once every couple of weeks.Other Hot Oil Beard Treatment RecommendationsAs Haar points out, the magic behind a hot oil beard treatment is the heat. You can just easily use a standard beard oil and repeat the process that Haar details above. To help you find the perfect potion for your precious locks, check out some of our favorite beard oils below. (You can find a more detailed list here.)If you’ve never used a beard oil before, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. You want a treatment that hydrates, nourishes, repairs, and encourages healthy hair growth with natural essential oils that won’t irritate your skin. You’ll also want to steer clear of any oils that are too fragrant, as the smell will linger in your beard for a long time and can cause some serious sniffles if you’ve got allergies.Kiehl’s Beard Oil – $27If you’re an experienced beard oil user, you probably have resorted to an oil that doesn’t leave your facial hair or skin feeling greasy and suffocated.

Its lightweight formula helps you put forth your best face by softening coarse hairs, depleting the risk of itchiness, and gently exfoliating the skin underneath your beard to promote healthy growth and an unbearable shine.

first_imgNew Delhi: Even a drop of pollution in Ganga is a matter of concern and the attitude of all authorities should be stringent to protect the river, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) has said while seeking concrete action plan on the issue.A bench headed by NGT chairperson Justice Adarsh Kumar Goel pulled up the National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG) over its action plan for Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand and West Bengal and said it does not show concrete plans with prompt timelines and effort in prohibiting pollution. Also Read – Personal life needs to be respected: Cong on reports of Rahul’s visit abroad”The NMCG has not filed the precise information about the status of projects planned and executed between Kanpur to Ganga Sagar. Thus, the affidavit of the NMCG is of no assistance. The counsel appearing for the NMCG is not ready and is merely dependent on Praveen Kumar, Director (Technical), NMCG who is also not competent to assist this tribunal. “During the interaction, we find his approach to be to help the polluters instead of remedying the pollution which is the mandate of law and the orders of this tribunal,” the bench, also comprising Justices S P Wangdi and K Ramakrishnan, said. Also Read – Firms staying closed 10 days a month due to recession, govt doing nothing: Priyanka GandhiIt asked the NMCG to take remedial action so that assistance of a suitable person is provided to this tribunal with precise information failing which the tribunal may consider coercive measures against it. The tribunal also asked the concerned states to take the matter seriously and assist the bench with precise information either through senior officers or through counsel. “No counsel is present on behalf of Bihar, Jharkhand and West Bengal. It is the responsibility of all the five states to ensure that water quality at every point meets the standards and if there is a violation, the violators are proceeded against in accordance with the law by way of prosecution, closure of polluting activities and payment of compensation for damage to the environment. “We direct Uttarakhand, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand and West Bengal to place the status of water quality in the respective states on their websites and update the same on a monthly basis indicating fitness of water at various places for drinking or bathing purposes. The CPCB may indicate water quality of the Ganga river at boundaries of the said states on its website,” the tribunal said. It said as already directed, flood plains may be duly demarcated; encroachments prohibited and removed, biodiversity parks set up and afforestation undertaken. No amount of wealth generation or commercial or industrial activities can get priority over cleanliness of the Ganga river, it said. “Any individual or establishment violating the environmental norms with respect to the Ganga river must be strictly dealt with under the law and special cells must be created in the concerned states to monitor such action on a daily basis. “Such action can be a model to deal with pollution of all other rivers in the country. It is a matter of regret that as per report of the CPCB, 351 river stretches are polluted in the country,” it said. The tribunal noted that it had directed chief secretaries of all the states and Union Territories to monitor this aspect along with other important issues. “Till date, chief secretaries or administrators of 32 states and UTs out of 36 states and UTs have appeared in person. This tribunal has directed highest level monitoring to deal with the situation at the state-level as well as national-level. The Ganga river needs attention at the highest level. “We hope that this seriousness will be realised by the concerned states, NMCG and the Ministry of Water Resources and steps will be taken in the right earnestness in compliance of order of this tribunal,” it said. The bench said every time the progress has been found to be unsatisfactory, it will now have no option but to take more stringent measures unless satisfactory remedial action is taken. The matter is listed for next hearing on May 29. The tribunal had earlier said the water of the Ganga river, between Haridwar and Unnao in Uttar Pradesh, was unfit for drinking and bathing, and expressed anguish over the situation. The green panel had said people drank and bathed in the river with reverence, without knowing that it may adversely affect their health.last_img read more

Rabat – Morocco’s national football team will face Tunisia and Burkina Faso in friendly matches, according to the Royal Moroccan Federation of Soccer (FRMF). Ahead of Morocco’s match against Mali on August 28 in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers, the national football team will face Burkina on March 24. Four days later, on March 28, Morocco will face Tunisia. Both matches will take place in Marrakech. Following Morocco’s elimination in the quarterfinals against Egypt in the 2017 African Cup of Nations (CAN2017) held in Gabon, Morocco ranked 48 in the FIFA global football rankings. During the two friendly matches, Morocco’s coach, Hervé Renard, is set to reintegrate AFC Ajax star, Hakim Ziyech, into the list of Morocco’s national football team players after he was absent in the 2017. Renard’s decision to rule out Ziyech from participating in CAN 2017 sparked outrage among Morocco’s national team fans. Fans were upset with the decision, especially after Ziyech had been awarded as Holland’s best player for 2016. In mid-January, former Netherlands striker and manager Marco van Basten had reproached Ziyech for deciding to play for Morocco and not waiting for his chance to be selected by the Netherlands national team. read more

Sources said the panel is expected to be briefed by Foreign Secretary Vijay Keshav Gokhale along with other senior officials. Members of the panel are also keen to know China’s expanding footprint in Sri Lanka and whether it is impacting its domestic politics as well, another source said, adding that Beijing’s presence in India’s southern front is a matter of concern, and the members want to know how New Delhi is tackling it.Sri Lanka is witnessing a political crisis since October 26 when President Maithripala Sirisena sacked Ranil Wickeremesinghe and replaced him with former president Mahinda Rajapaksa. The members will definitely question the ministry officials about the ongoing political crisis in Sri Lanka, as the stability in the island nation is in India’s interest especially from the security point of view, a source said. Sirisena later dissolved the parliament, almost 20 months before its term was to end, and ordered snap election. The country’s Supreme Court, however, overturned Sirisena’s decision to dissolve the parliament and halted the preparations for snap polls.Both Wickremesinghe and Rajapaksa claim to be the prime ministers. Wickremesinghe says his dismissal is invalid because he still holds a majority in the 225-member Parliament.Wickremsinghe-led alliance of several pilitical parties, the UNF, has moved three no trust motions against Rajapaksa, who has refused to step down. Speaker Karu Jayasuriya has officially conveyed that the parliament does not recognise Rajapaksa as the legal prime minister until he proved his majority in the House. (Colombo Gazette) Top officials of the Indian Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) will brief a parliamentary panel on India-Sri Lanka relations, and they may be questioned on the current political crisis in the neighbouring island nation and its impact on New Delhi, Indian media reports quoted sources as saying on Sunday.The Parliamentary Standing Committee on External Affairs, which is headed by Congress leader Shashi Tharoor and has the party chief Rahul Gandhi as a member, is scheduled to be briefed by the top officials of the ministry on December 14, according to a notice issued by the Lok Sabha Secretariat, reported. read more

first_imgSedgman today announced that it has entered into a contract with Q Coal to design and construct a coal handling and preparation plant (CHPP) at the Sonoma coal mine situated south of Collinsville in Queensland, Australia. The contract, valued at A$75 million, will see the construction of an 800 t/h CHPP with commissioning due in the second half of 2007. Once operational, the new facility will be able to process up to 5.8 Mt/y of coal.Sedgman reports that the “signing of this contract symbolizes another milestone” in its “27 year history representing the largest contract in value independently undertaken by the company.” Managing Director, Peter Hay said the Sonoma contract was awarded to Sedgman without a tender process and was illustrative of Sedgman’s expertize and reputation in the design and construction of CHPPs.The Sonoma mine is a ‘greenfields’ project which will produce both coking and thermal coal and has recently been awarded major project facilitation status by the Commonwealth government. “Sedgman has worked closely with Q Coal since the inception of the Sonoma project in developing the design for the CHPP and we are very proud to be part of this exciting project,” Hay said.  “The development of Sonoma evidences the continuing strong demand for coal and the need for coal infrastructure. With its ability to offer the full range of services to the coal industry from resource assessment, design, construction and operations, Sedgman remains in an ideal position to maximize its market position.”Hay also confirmed that Sedgman and Q Coal are currently negotiating terms for an operations contract to enable the company to operate the CHPP on Q Coal’s behalf for an initial five-year term.last_img read more

first_img Post a comment Tags 5G 8:33 The race toward 5G continues, and revenues are projected to skyrocket.  Frederic J. Brown/Getty Images IT research firm Gartner released a forecast Thursday projecting revenues from worldwide 5G network infrastructure will reach $4.2 billion by 2020. That would amount to an 89% revenue hike from the firm’s 2019 projections of $2.2 billion. The firm expects overall 4G revenues to dip from $19.32 billion in 2019 to $18.28 billion in 2020, with similar drops in 3G and 2G revenues. “It’s still early days for the 5G private-network opportunity, but vendors, regulators and standards bodies have preparations in place,” senior Gartner researcher Sylvain Fabre said in a release. 5G ubiquity is still pretty far away, but networks are starting to sprout up all around the world. The next-generation technology promises super fast mobile speeds, and it’s poised to boost areas like self-driving cars and virtual reality. All four major US carriers — Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint — have turned on their 5G networks, though in limited areas so far, and more 5G-capable devices are set to launch this year. Gartner estimates 7% of providers have deployed 5G network infrastructure so far, and projects that overall provider investment in 5G networks will double from 6% in 2019 to 12% in 2020. The firm also cautions that to maintain 4G coverage during an extended rollout period from 2019 to 2021, service providers will need to upgrade existing 4G infrastructure.Otherwise, “a less robust 4G legacy layer adjoining 5G cells could lead to real or perceived performance issues as users move from 5G to 4G/LTE Advanced Pro,” Fabre said.By 2021, Gartner projects, 5G infrastructure revenues will climb to $6.8 billion.  Internet Services Mobilecenter_img 5G’s not just for phones – Cars, robots, even doctors… 0 Share your voice Now playing: Watch this:last_img read more

first_imgThe temptation was too great for him to handle. That was the explanation reportedly given by Greg Priore, the archivist in charge of protecting a special collection of rare books at the Carnegie Library in Pittsburgh. Priore reportedly walked out of the public library building with the rare books and took them to a partner to sell, a local bookstore owner, police said.Both Priore and John Schulman, the owner of the Caliban Book Shop, face multiple criminal charges. Books were stolen and also damaged to remove photos and maps.The stolen books, kept in the Oliver Room, a room that one needed special permission to access, included a 1787 first-edition book signed by Thomas Jefferson; a rare copy of The Journal of Major George Washington; and a version of Isaac Newton’s Principia, among the most influential books in science, said to be worth $900,000, according to a story in the New York Times.Front entrance of the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh. Photo by Shizzy9989 CC BY-SA 3.0Prosecutors say that “Priore would sometimes use an X-Acto knife to cut maps and bookplates out of some books,” reported Pittsburgh’s NPR News. “They allege Priore walked out of the library with the items and took them to the bookstore a block away. They say the bookseller paid Priore up front and then pocketed the cash from items he could unload.”The pair’s crimes were uncovered after police working with the Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office began investigating the Oliver Room in June 2017. It was triggered by a scheduled appraisal that found “multiple items as being missing or damaged,” according to the criminal complaint filed in July 2018 against Priore and Schulman.The two men are accused of trafficking several hundred rare books.When the inventory was compared with the room’s contents from an appraisal done in 1991, authorities discovered that about 320 items were missing and 16 were vandalized by the removal of certain portions of the book.“Priore stated that he did not always conceal removing items from the premise,” detectives stated in the complaint. “If it were a small map or plate, he would place it in a manila folder. If it were a large map or plate, he would simply roll it up and carry it out. And with books, he would just carry them out.”The Caliban Book Shop is just a block away from the library.Interior of the main branch of Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, a public library in Pittsburgh.

Priore also told detectives he’d expected “fallout down the line.”Mysterious Books That Can’t Be ExplainedWhile admitting it was his idea in the first place, “I should have never done this,” he told investigators, according to the complaint. “I loved that room, my whole working life, and greed overcame me. I did it, but Schulman spurred me on.”Books on display.The two men are accused of trafficking several hundred rare books, maps, and other items worth more than $8 million, reports say. “More than $1 million worth of items, including the Newton volume, have been recovered,” the New York Times reported.The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh is part of the city’s public library system. Priore oversaw about 30,000 items in the collection and controlled who had access to it, the affidavit said. According to one newspaper story, a library colleague of Priore’s was surprised to see Schulman looking at the collection and heard him discussing the value with Priore.Interior view, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh.A separate legal action is taking place because Schulman is opposing the district attorney’s motion to freeze his bank accounts, court records show.A motion filed and signed by a judge froze two bank accounts related to John Schulman’s Caliban Book Shop.

first_imgUnLazy for Firefox disables lazy loading by Martin Brinkmann on April 25, 2019 in Firefox – Last Update: April 30, 2019 – 55 commentsUnLazy is a browser extension for the Firefox web browser that attempts to disable lazy loading on any website that you load in the browser.Websites may implement lazy loading techniques in an effort to prioritize content that is visible to the user. Sites may implement their own scripts to do so or use existing plugins if they use a content management system like WordPress.Google announced recently that Chrome will support lazy loading natively, and that it will improve page load times because the browser has to download less content on page load.While lazy loading is a good idea on paper, it may lead to user experience issues. If you scroll fast enough on a page, you may end up with images not being loaded properly; your only option then is to wait until these images get loaded. Sometimes, lazy loading gets stuck and images don’t get loaded at all.Lazy loading may improve the experience for slow connections under certain circumstances though, but if you have a reasonably fast Internet connection, you may not see much of a benefit.Disable Lazy Loading in FirefoxUnLazy is a Firefox add-on that tries to address this by disabling lazy loading on any site that you load in the browser. The developer describes the extension’s functionality in the following way:This web-extension heuristically tries to kill dynamically-loaded images engines such as Google PageSpeed, then figure-out and place a clean, normal correct image in-place of the lazy-loaded one.The extension finds image references in the source code and tries to replace lazy loading instructions so that images do get loaded right away on the site.The developer states that the extension has been tested on sites like eBay, Amazon, and YouTube, and that it should work on WordPress sites, sites that use Google’s PageSpeed engine, and other websites that implement lazy loading techniques.The extension places an icon in the main Firefox toolbar when you install it. It displays a number sometimes, and I assume that the number indicates the number of images that it disabled from lazy loading; this is not explained anywhere unfortunately.Update: The extension is no longer available on Mozilla AMO. It is unclear what happened. We have uploaded the latest version to our own server for archiving purposes. Note that it won’t be updated and that it may not work properly going forward. Click on this link to download it: UnlazyVerdictThe extension did not cause any issues during tests and that is definitely a good thing. I would like to see an option to disable it for certain sites that may not work properly when it is enabled though. The effect that you get depends largely on the speed of the Internet connection, but you may resolve issues that you experience on sites with lazy loading as well by installing UnLazy.The developer is very active both when it comes to updating the UnLazy extension and in producing more extensions. A total of 32 different extensions are listed, and many of them address issues that users may experience on sites. Expect more reviews in the future.I’d like to thank Ghacks veterans Tom and Rick as they suggested the extension and its developer in first place.Now You: What is your take on lazy loading?Summary12345 Author Rating4.5 based on 12 votes Software Name UnLazySoftware Category Browser Advertisementlast_img read more
