PALMDALE – Seven people were injured, two men and three young boys critically, when a car ran a red light and collided head-on with another car on Pearblossom Highway at 25th Street East. The collision occurred shortly before 10 p.m. Sunday when a 2005 Nissan Altima driven by Benjamin Ramirez, 24, of Sylmar went through a red light and crashed into a 2001 Toyota Avalon driven by 33-year-old Juan Gutierrez of Palmdale, who was just starting to make a left turn onto 25th Street East, sheriff’s deputies said. “If this had been a broadside accident, there would have been several people dead,” Deputy Dale Lovvik said. “The Avalon had barely started the turn.

He was rushed to hospital on the advice of a team of doctors after he had stopped water intake also on Thursday.“He has been admitted and is currently being monitored by a team of three doctors,” said a health bulletin issued by Civil Hospital in Sola, Ahmedabad.In last 14 days since he began indefinite fast to press for his twin demands of quota for his Patidar community and a waiver of farm loans, Mr. Patel had stopped drinking water after his ultimatum to the BJP government to hold talks with his Patidar Anamat Andolan Samiti (PAAS) within 24 hours elapsed.Condition worsens“We have admitted him to the hospital because his health worsened on Friday,” said Manoj Panara of PAAS. He added that the agitation for quota and farm loan waiver will continue because the Gujarat BJP government was non-committal on the issues.Before his hospitalisation, a key leader of the Patidar community Naresh Patel, held a meeting with PAAS leader and urged him to end his fast but continue his agitation on the issues.

Jofra 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.

TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Bayern Munich make bid No4 for Chelsea winger Hudson-Odoiby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveBayern Munich have made another offer for Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi.The Daily Mail says Bayern have made a fourth bid of £35million for Hudson-Odoi, matching Chelsea’s required asking price. The Bundesliga champions are very keen to sign the teenage forward, who is struggling for first team opportunities at Stamford Bridge.Hudson-Odoi has impressed whenever he has featured for Chelsea this season, including assists for both goals in the 2-0 FA Cup win over Nottingham Forest. However he is not a regular starter for Chelsea and with Christian Pulisic set to arrive from Borussia Dortmund next summer, his chances look likely to become even more scarce.

LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment But Game of Thrones, despite being absent from the ballots last year, roared back to prominence. It was already the most decorated scripted show in Emmy history, but after a 13-month absence, the series seemed vulnerable to fickle voters and the red tide of the handmaids. But voters chose escapism over an alternate reality that perhaps hit too close to home.Despite the focus on the headline contest between well-established incumbents for best drama, this was ostensibly an Emmy Awards night about diversity. But it didn’t quite deliver on the mission statement.Inside the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles, an entertaining musical number featured John Legend, Ricky Martin, Kate McKinnon and Kenan Thompson singing, tongue firmly planted in cheek, that they had solved the lack of diversity in Hollywood.“This year has the most diverse group in Emmy history,” said Thompson. “It’s one step closer to a Black Sheldon.” Login/Register With: Twitter
