My team knows what we want and we are aiming to win,” said the 60-year-old.“Depending on my players’ condition, there will be no big changes in the lineup. The best will start tomorrow against Yemen and we will strive to get the positive result.”Yemen will also be in search for the three points as they could also sneak a spot in the knockout phases with a win over Vietnam. They have yet to score a single goal in this tournament, however, having been demolished 5-0 by Iran in their debut game of the tournament followed by a 3-0 thrashing by Iraq in their next fixture.Manager Jan Kocian, however, is confident that his side can overcome their scoring drought to bypass Vietnam in the final group game.“In both of our previous games we conceded early goals, 3-0 [against Iran] and 2-0 [against Iraq]. My players may be a little inexperienced at this level but we are slowly improving,” he told reporters ahead of the game.“The team is a little down after suffering our second loss. We have to start better against Vietnam, stay focused and play more compact football.“I know we can play better. The slogan on our team bus reads ‘Never give up’, so I believe this will be our chance to shine and put in a good performance.”last_img read more

Wanted to play the brand of cricket Mumbai Indians are known for: Rohit Sharma

first_img commentary Rohan Sen MumbaiApril 4, 2019UPDATED: April 4, 2019 10:36 IST Rohit Sharma was a happy captain as Mumbai Indians ended Chennai’s unbeaten run (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSMumbai Indians (170/5) beat Chennai Super Kings (133/8 ) by 37 runsMumbai climbed to sixth position in the points table with 4 pointsChennai Super Kings dropped to second in the table after their first loss this seasonMumbai Indians brought an end to Chennai Super Kings’ unbeaten run as they beat the defending champions by 37 runs on Thursday to register their second win of IPL 2019.Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma was a happy man after his side staged a superb fightback while to post 170 for 5, batting first, and then the bowlers did an outstanding job to restrict the dangerous Super Kings lineup to 133 for 8 at the Wankhede stadium.It was the 100th IPL win for Mumbai who had lost their previous game against Kings XI Punjab last month. They are now sixth in the points table but still have a long way to go to climb up the ladder. Chennai Super Kings dropped to second in the table after their first loss this season. Kings XI Punjab have taken the lead.”I think every game we play in the IPL is important. Having lost two games at the start, suddenly every match becomes important. We don’t want to keep that task of having to win many games at the end, it’s really difficult. We just wanted to play the brand of cricket Mumbai Indians are known for. We just kept ourselves in the game all the way through and those are good signs.”I thought 170 was a fighting total here because you never know. We knew that there was something in the pitch and if we could knock wickets early, things could work. That’s exactly what happened. We didn’t start off well with the bat but we finished really well,” Rohit Sharma said after the match.advertisementHardik Pandya was the star of Mumbai on Thursday night as he smashed 425 not out off 8 balls to fire the home side to a par score after they were reduced to 125 for 5 by the 18th over.The all-rounder also starred with the ball, taking 3 wickets for 20 runs from his four overs and finished as the joint-highest wicket taker in the match along with Lasith Malinga (3 for 34).”We didn’t start off well with the bat but we finished really well. With the ball, we were extremely clinical. To defend a 170 score at Wankhede, you need to be really good with the ball and we were with the fielding also being extremely efficient. That’s why I can’t pinpoint a single match-changing event, there were so many of them,” Rohit said.The Mumbai Indians skipper also praised debutant Jason Behrendorff, who took the wickets of Ambati Rayudu and Suresh Raina in quick succession to dent CSK early in their run chase.”Jason has been great for Australia with the new ball and we all know what he is capable of. Did the same for us and his spell early on set the tone. Rahul also seemed promising, bowled just the two overs but there was a reason for that as MS and Kedar play spin well. So, I went on with the pacers,” Rohit concluded.Mumbai Indians will next face the Sunrisers Hyderabad on April 6 after Chennai Super Kings host Kings XI Punjab on the same day.Also Read | IPL 2019: Kieron Pollard in awe of Pandya brothers after MI crush CSKAlso Read | MI vs CSK Highlights, IPL 2019: Mumbai Indians beat Chennai Super Kings by 37 runsAlso Read | IPL 2019: Clash of the Titans as Mumbai Indians host Chennai Super Kings For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

NTSB Blames Captain for El Faro Sinking

first_imgzoom The El Faro tragedy, which was the deadliest shipping disaster involving a US-flagged vessel in more than 30 years, was caused by the captain’s failure to avoid sailing into a hurricane.The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) concluded that the sinking occurred due to the captain’s decisions, despite numerous opportunities to route a course away from hazardous weather.“We may never understand why the captain failed to heed his crew’s concerns about sailing into the path of a hurricane, or why he refused to chart a safer course away from such dangerous weather,” Robert L. Sumwalt, NTSB Chairman, said, “but we know all too well the devastating consequences of those decisions.”The 790-foot El Faro sank on October 1, 2015 in the Atlantic Ocean during Hurricane Joaquin, taking the lives of all 33 seafarers who were aboard.The ship departed Florida on September 29 and had a range of navigation options “that would have allowed it to steer clear of the storm that later became a Category 4 hurricane.”NTSB said that the captain, consulting outdated weather forecasts and ignoring the suggestions of his bridge officers to take the ship farther south and away from the storm, ordered a course that intersected with the path of a hurricane that hit the ship with 35-foot seas and 100 mph winds.As the ship sailed into the outer bands of the storm, about five hours prior to the sinking, its speed decreased and it began to list to starboard due to severe wind and seas. In the last few hours of the voyage, the crew struggled to deal with a cascading series of events, any one of which could have endangered the ship on its own, according to the investigation results.Seawater entered the ship through cargo loading and other openings on a partially enclosed deck in the ship’s hull, pooled on the starboard side and poured through an open hatch into a cargo hold. The hold began to fill with seawater, and automobiles in the hold broke free of lashings and likely ruptured a fire main pipe that could have allowed thousands of gallons of seawater per minute into the ship – faster than could be removed by bilge pumps.About 90 minutes before the sinking the listing ship lost its propulsion and was unable to maneuver. Although the captain ordered the crew to abandon ship when the sinking was imminent, the crew’s chances of survival were significantly reduced because El Faro was equipped with life rafts and open uncovered lifeboats, which met requirements but were ineffective in hurricane conditions.The NTSB also said that the poor oversight and inadequate safety management system of the ship’s operator, TOTE, contributed to the sinking.“Although El Faro and its crew should never have found themselves in such treacherous weather, that ship was not destined to sink,” said Sumwalt.“If the crew had more information about the status of the hatches, how to best manage the flooding situation, and the ship’s vulnerabilities when in a sustained list, the accident might have been prevented.”As a result of the 26-month long investigation, the NTSB made 29 recommendations to the US Coast Guard, two to the Federal Communications Commission, one to the National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration, nine to the International Association of Classification Societies, one to the American Bureau of Shipping, one to Furuno Electric Company and ten to TOTE Services.last_img read more

Imlil Murders Louisas Former Partner Writes Heartbreaking Farewell

Rabat – In an emotional message posted on Facebook, Glen Martin, the boyfriend of Louisa Vesterager Jespersen, one of the murdered Scandinavian tourists, said that the best way to mourn his girlfriend is to hold on to positive energy despite the horror and pain of the loss.Writing on Facebook yesterday as investigators found terrorist links into the murder of Louisa and her friend Maren Ueland, Martin exhorted his friends and loved ones to hold onto love and always remember their sweetest memories with Louisa.“Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle. You were that single candle Louisa,” began Martin’s post. Twenty-four-year-old Louisa from Denmark, and 28-year-old Maren from Norway, who became friends at university in Norway, came to Morocco in early December for a month-long holiday. They hoped to make the most of their stay by exploring the country’s natural beauty, according to their latest social media posts. On Monday, December 17, however, police discovered their bodies at their camping site near Imlil, a village close to Mount Toubkal, North Africa’s highest peak and a popular hiking destination.As details of the two women’s brutal murder emerge on social media and on both Moroccan and international news outlets, thousands are expressing their sympathy for the victims’ families.Read Also: Norway Police Say Video of Scandinavian Murders in Morocco is RealMartin’s post acknowledged the love, sympathy, and support he has so far received, calling for the positivity to continue as friends and acquaintances mourn Louisa.“I want to finish off with a request to us left behind. Love will bring us through this, not tourits hate, hate gives us nothing but anger. Love Louisa and her memory … I want everybody that reads this post to call or text someone close to you and tell them how much they mean for you. I would give anything to tell Louisa one last time what a beautiful human being she was and how much she meant to me.”Moroccan authorities, who are working to shed further light on the Imlil tragedy, echoed the same message of love and commitment to “our shared values and humanity” in the face of divisive forces.On Facebook, Martin’s heartbreaking message elicited even more emotional responses. Friends stressed Louise “sweetness,” easy-going nature, and readiness to “always help.” “You put this together with such love and emotion Glen,” one friend said, proceeding to explain that his last memory of Louisa was during a music festival, barely a month ago. “I just remember her saying ‘ah Luke, you’re so sweet.’ I don’t remember the context but every time I hear it it is in her voice,” he added.Another recounted a hiking trip when Louisa helped a group of friends find their way. She wrote: “My friends and I missed the path on the Camino de Santiago and, Louisa, who was climbing up the true path, looked back and noticed us. She ran down the mountain and along the road to show us the way.”Others shared photographs of fun moments and activities they shared with Louisa, relying on the power of pictures to express feelings that words cannot adequately capture. One reminisced on his “good experience teaching Louisa.” He said he knew from those moments spent teaching her that “she was the kind of person who would not only have the heart to care about others but also the courage to actually help people in need.”He concluded with heart-rending brevity, “I will remember your positive energy and I know we will meet again.” read more

Annan shocked and saddened at deaths from Israeli missile attack in Gaza

“I have always maintained that there has to be proportional use of force, and governments have to be careful not to take action in areas where civilians are remotely likely to be put in harm’s way, and that we need to respect humanitarian international law,” Mr. Annan told reporters at UN Headquarters in New York.Mr. Annan said he spoke with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert about the issue over the weekend and expected to speak to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas shortly. “We do accept that Israel has a right to defend itself and its population, but the issue of proportionality and respect for international humanitarian law is a basic requirement,” he added. read more

Wynne says reducing auto insurance fraud is the way to cutting rates

TORONTO – Premier-designate Kathleen Wynne said Tuesday she’s willing to talk with the NDP about their demand for a 15 per cent cut in auto insurance premiums, but she’s more interested in tackling fraud in the system.NDP Leader Andrea Horwath demanded the rate cut after premiums rose five per cent in 2011, even though regulatory changes cut benefits for motorists and reduced statutory accident payouts from insurers by almost $2 billion — or 50 per cent.“I have heard what Andrea Horwath has said, (and) it’s one of the things that she and I will be talking about,” Wynne said during a conference call with ethnic media.“But I am specifically interested in reducing fraud in the system, and that will save money.”The Insurance Bureau of Canada said fraud costs Ontario drivers about $1.6 billion a year, and adds between $116 and $236 to the average yearly premium paid by motorists.The industry lobby called on the government to implement the recommendations of a task force on insurance fraud, something Wynne said she intends to do.“I am going to be very interested in implementing those recommendations, and that will save the industry money,” she said.“I’ll be interested in looking at the savings that would come from those recommendations, and then working with the industry to see how those savings could be passed along to premium holders.”The task force set up by Finance Minister Dwight Duncan found 83 per cent of auto insurance fraud in Ontario takes place in the Greater Toronto Area, and recommended the government implement a provincewide licensing scheme for the towing industry.It also called for rule changes to make it clear that insurers are required to provide claimants with a full explanation when they refuse to pay for treatment, assessment or other benefits.The NDP calculated a 15 per cent reduction in premiums would save the average Ontario driver about $226 a year, and said they too want to combat fraud.“No one disagrees that we need to crack down on fraud, but we also need to get cracking on relief for drivers,” said NDP house leader Gilles Bisson.The Progressive Conservatives said the rate cut demand sounded to them like the NDP’s opening bid in its pre-budget negotiations with the minority Liberals, who need the support of at least one opposition party to avoid an election this year.“I don’t think Andrea Horwath has a clue what she’s talking about when she sweeps her hand across the front of the cameras and says a 15 per cent cut,” said PC finance critic Peter Shurman.“There definitely has to be a good look taken at that industry, but to say that you can simply create a 15 per cent cut without knowing the state of the bloated aspects of the auto insurance industry is silliness.” by Keith Leslie, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 5, 2013 4:39 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Wynne says reducing auto insurance fraud is the way to cutting rates for drivers read more

Halliday is not happy after Rangers tie

first_imgRangers and Kilmarnock tied 0-0 in the Scottish Cup Fifth Round and will replay the match on February 20th.Rangers and Kilmarnock drew 0-0 in the Fifth Round of the Scottish Cup.And for Andy Halliday, this was not the best performance by the Gers and will have to replay it on February 20th.“I thought that the first half was a scrappy affair and I don’t think that either team was very good, to be honest, I don’t think there were many chances created,” he told the club’s official website.“Second half, I thought that we were a lot better. We got the ball on the floor a lot better and we started to string some passes together.”“Some chances came from it and unfortunately we couldn’t take them away so it’s gone to a replay,” he commented.“The message was always at the start of the game that if we keep a clean sheet then we are still in the hat, however, we always wanted to win the game.”“We’ve played a lot of games this season, so another one to add to your schedule is not ideal,” he added.Rangers is still behind Celtic: John Hartson Manuel R. Medina – September 3, 2019 According to the former Celtic player, there’s still a massive gap between his ex-club and Rangers in the Scottish Premier League.“At the end of the day, we’re going for a trophy, so tiredness isn’t going to come into it. It wasn’t the best performance in the world but we are still in it.”“It’s back to Ibrox where we have own crowd advantage, so it’s not all doom and gloom,” he continued.“Obviously the pitch is something that they are used to as they play on it and they train on it every day and play on it every week.”📆 Our @ScottishCup replay against Kilmarnock will take place at Ibrox on Wed 20th February, KO 7:45pm.Ticket information will follow in due course. pic.twitter.com/cTPU6UqWNS— Rangers Football Club (@RangersFC) February 9, 2019last_img read more

Audi recalls 144000 cars for passenger airbag detection problems

first_img 0 Check out the curvaceous and capacious 2018 Audi A5 Sportback 52 Photos Car Industry Luxury cars Convertibles Sports Cars Coupes Sedans The 2018 Audi A5 Sportback is the best kind of compromise Post a comment Share your voice Recalls Audi More about 2018 Audi A5 Sportback Enlarge ImageIn the meantime, just make everyone sit in the back. Being uncomfortable is better than not having the protection of an airbag. Antuan Goodwin/Roadshow In order to prevent unnecessary airbag deployments, many cars are equipped with a passenger detection system that can disable the passenger-side front airbag in the event there’s nobody seated there. If that system goes wrong, the consequences can be dire, which is the reason for Audi’s latest recall.Audi recently issued a recall for 144,000 examples of its vehicles. This group includes the 2017-2018 Audi A4/S4 (sedan and Allroad variants) and the 2018 Audi A5/S5 (in coupe, convertible and Sportback variants). The recall population covers the aforementioned vehicles with build dates from their respective starts of production until July 31, 2018.The issue comes from the passenger detection system that’s linked to the passenger airbag. The cable has a self-diagnosing function that is apparently too sensitive. If the cable’s shielding has even partial surface oxidation, the detection system will malfunction and disable the passenger airbag, even though a passenger might be seated there. If this happens, the “passenger airbag off” will illuminate as expected, in addition to the airbag warning light. This defect can result in an increased risk of injury in a crash. Audi first caught wind of the issue in mid-2017, when it received an increased number of field reports about passenger-detection-system replacements. In conjunction with its supplier, Audi dug into the data and eventually discovered the reason behind the fault. While the company is still working to find out why the issue develops and why certain vehicles are apparently more susceptible to it, Audi initiated a recall.The fix is relatively straightforward, sort of. Audi technicians will take recalled vehicles and apply a software patch that adjusts the diagnostics’ thresholds, preventing the cable oxidation from disabling the passenger airbag. However, it has not yet issued a correction in production and is still evaluating that side of things. Owners should expect to receive recall notifications by mid-September. 2019 Toyota Prius AWD-e review: A thrifty hybrid with more gripcenter_img Tags Now playing: Watch this: More From Roadshow Audi 2020 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque review: Style, now with more substance 2019 Mercedes-Benz S560 Coupe review: Still the luxury benchmark Preview • 2018 Audi A5 Sportback: Audi’s new hatch a fine choice 6:18 Review • 2018 Audi A5 Sportback: The best of all worldslast_img read more

Apple to Team up with IBM to Boost iPad Sales Video

first_imgApple Inc. is set to team up with International Business Machines (IBM) to boost the sales of the iPad that has been under-performing in the market. Former rivals Apple and IBM had announced a deal last week, to release over 100 new exclusive mobile applications for the corporate world to target retail, healthcare, banking, travel, transportation and telecommunication sector. Investors hope the deal with IBM will boost the sales of iPad in USA.Apple Inc’s iPad is losing its hold in global market just four years after its release, but last week’s announcement to team up with IBM could help it regain its popularity in corporate market.However, this is not the case with the iPhone and Mac computer. Phone sales jumped about 48 percent and Mac computer sales surged 39 percent in the June quarter. Moreover, the company sold 35.2 million iPhones in the June quarter.The company reported sales of $37.4 billion in its fiscal third quarter ended June, falling short of Wall Street’s expectations for about $38 billion. The net income touched 12.2 percent to $7.75 billion or $1.28 per share.But, Ipad sales have been under pressure. The company exported only 13.2 million iPads in the June quarter, 8 percent lower than a year earlier and lagging behind Wall Street’s forecast of 14 million or more. Sales of the device, which accounted for 15 percent of earnings, fell short of Wall Street’s predictions for the second quarter in a row.Larger and cheaper android phones have become popular, which has led to the decline in sales of iPad and other Apple products since 2012. ScoopWhoop published an article explaining the perspective of an Android phone user against iPhone user. Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook described the sales of iPad as “very bifurcated”- they continue to grow at fifty percent rate in Middle East and China, but the market is weaker in United States.Research firm IDC lowered its forecast for 2014 worldwide tablet demand growth to 12.1 percent – a fraction of the 51.8 percent expansion of 2013. The first quarter of this year also saw Apple’s market share slide to 32.5 percent, from 40 percent a year earlier.”The tablet market globally has really hit a wall,” Reuters quoted Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Brian White.Apple Inc is expected to launch a larger 5.5 inch iPhone soon, which would begin closing in on the 7.8 inch iPad mini.”You have the negative impact of the larger screen iPhone and what that would do to iPad mini,” Piper Jaffrey’s analyst, Gene Munster told Reuters. “You’re going to get a larger screen iPhone before you’ll get contributions from the IBM partnership.”According to IDC, iPad’s popularity in corporate world held about 20 percent against 60 percent for notebook computers.Tim Cook believes the deal to be an enormous opportunity for the company, a former IBM executive himself, said in a conference call. “And we’re not competing with each other so a partnership in that case is particularly great.”Stock price of Apple Inc recorded $2.47 or 2.61 percent higher at USD 97.19 per stock on Thursday. Following the reports of Apple Inc profits, Mark Newton, Chief Technical Analyst and Partner of Greywolf Execution told IBTimes that the stock price of Tech giants might be bullish in long term.last_img read more
