HBO is pure evil for releasing a Game of Thrones Season 7

first_imgHBO and Game Of Thrones have figured out one of our weaknesses and they’re exploiting it early and to maximum potential.That weakness? Teasers.While I may not be a fan of teaser trailers for teaser trailers or that weird five-second teaser trailer they’re putting in front of other trailers these days, I love a good tease and this new video from HBO is working it like one of the burlesque queens of old.If you want to blame someone for sucking you into this teaser trailer, blame the lovely Sasha Perl-Raver for sharing it on her Twitter account. Or blame HBO, or Game Of Thrones, or even George R.R. Martin. Just don’t blame me because I’m just the messenger dutifully passing along the “news” that this teaser exists.It’s pure evil. It’s Qyburn and Cersei plotting levels of evil but it’s also wonderful because it’s a reminder that season seven is already being created. It’s just out of reach. Tantalizingly close to showing you something; a glimpse, a peek, a secret. I’ve watched it multiple times looking for any clue and I’m sure I’ll watch it again several more times as I try and see what’s hidden in plain sight.last_img read more

Plight of mother earth expressed through Kathak

first_imgAt a time when pollution level is going beyond 400 and global warming is becoming increasingly visible, Dr Rekha Mehra and her troupe danced their hearts out at Pragati Maidan in order to spread awareness about the plight of the earth. ‘Dhani Chunariya’, a Kathak ballet production was held at Hans Dhwani, Pragati Maidan during the World Book Fair. Titled, ‘Dhani Chunariya’, this Kathak ballet showcased that even though man might be stepping into the 22nd century, the problem of pollution and climate change still looms. The sad consequences range from an upset ecological cycle to a sharp rise in diseases. What is ironical is that the very means and devices of comfort man is creating for his race have been the cause of environmental disbalances and natural calamities. Thus man himself poses a huge question mark over his existence and the solution to this grave self-created issue can be devised only by man. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfPraising the performance, MP Parvesh Verma said, “Dr Rekha Mehra is the first person who had started promoting “Beti Bachao Beti Padhao” and many more programmes through kathak and drama in Delhi and her performance always give the right message to the audience. We are always with Dr Rekha in her endeavours.” To spread awareness on the adverse effects of deforestation, ‘Urvashi’ had organized a campaign to plant saplings, which in future will grow into mighty trees. Special focus was laid on school children whose young minds are impressionable and who are to become the future torch-bearers of the society.last_img read more

Acer Chromebook 11 2018 Review

first_img 1.1-GHz Dual-core Intel Celeron N3350 processor USB 3.0 Bluetooth When you think of Chromebooks, you wouldn’t immediately imagine something that looks premium or classy, but the $269 Acer Chromebook 11 proves otherwise. This 11.6-inch blue nugget is a solid multitasker with a long battery life. And it even has a decent matte display. However, its keyboard and audio are not pleasant, and the processor struggles to emulate Android apps.article continued below Design The Acer Chromebook 11 is definitely a show-off, with its lovely, microscopically etched squares on its indigo-blue lid, which feel too good not to touch. Aside from that, it’s very minimalist, with a glossy Acer logo on the left and Chrome’s emblem above that. The interior also has a similarly pleasant, faux-aluminum aesthetic. However, the keyboard is bulky and bland, and the bezels are chunky. The lovely, microscopically etched squares on the Chromebook 11’s indigo-blue lid feel too good not to touch. At 2.4 pounds and 11.7 x 7.8 x 0.7 inches, the Acer Chromebook 11 is thinner and lighter than its competitors. Both the Lenovo 500e Chromebook (3 pounds) and the Dell Chromebook 5190 (2.9 pounds) are heavier and slightly thicker (0.8 inches). Ports For a sub-$300 laptop, the Acer Chromebook 11 has a decent number of ports. On the left, there’s one Thunderbolt 3 port with power delivery, one USB 3.0 port, a microSD slot and a headphone/microphone combo jack. The right side features a Kensington lock slot, one Thunderbolt 3 port and one USB 3.0 port. Display The 11.6-inch, 1366 x 768 matte display on the Acer Chromebook 11 isn’t as crisp as I would have liked, but the colors and brightness aren’t bad for a Chromebook. In the Aquaman trailer, I could make out Mera’s surroundings, from the crummy-looking bench in the right corner to the two docked boats off in the distance on the left, as she walked on a boating dock in the dead of night. And while the golden trim of her suit was more visible than I expected, the accompanying emerald and her crimson hair could have been a little bolder. I also noticed that the screen generally had a yellowish tint, and it was especially noticeable in white web pages. In the Aquaman trailer, I could make out Mera’s surroundings, from the crummy-looking bench in the right corner to the two docked boats off in the distance on the left. According to our colorimeter, the Acer Chromebook 11 is on the dull side, covering 78 percent of the sRGB color gamut. But it’s well in range of the 79-percent Chromebook average. The Dell Chromebook 5190 is even worse, at 73 percent, but the Lenovo 500e Chromebook covers the widest range among them, at 81 percent. The Acer Chromebook 11’s display is quite dim, at 223 nits of brightness. And while its matte panel helps combat glare, its output is still lower than the 250-nit category average. The Lenovo was slightly dimmer, at 218 nits, and the Dell surpassed the average, with 258 nits. Keyboard and Touchpad The keys on the Acer Chromebook 11 are shallow and bouncy, as I could feel them bottoming out and pushing against me without fully being pressed. However, the keys are decently spaced, and although the keyboard is not sunken very deep into the chassis, the positioning of palm rests is comfortable. The keys travel 1.1 millimeters and require 61 grams of actuation force. We typically look for travel in the range of 1.5 to 2.0 mm and a minimum of 60 grams of force. I banged out only 62 words per minute on the typing test, which is short of my 67-wpm average. The keys on the Acer Chromebook 11 are shallow and bouncy. The 4.1 x 2.3-inch touchpad has a decent click to it and is responsive for two-finger scrolling and three-finger tab navigation. Audio When I listened to Colony House’s “Silhouettes,” the speakers practically screeched at me and barely produced enough volume to fill a small conference room. When I cranked the volume up to the max, the speakers distorted the rhythmic guitar strumming and drumbeats to the point where it actually hurt my ears. Despite wanting to turn off the sound completely, I noticed that the vocals, guitar and drums were somewhat balanced. When I cranked the volume up to the max, the speakers distorted the rhythmic guitar strumming and drumbeats to the point where it actually hurt my ears. Performance A 1.1-GHz dual-core Intel Celeron N3350 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of eMMC storage and an Intel HD 500 graphics card lie under the hood of the Acer Chromebook 11, making it a solid multitasker. The Chromebook 11 had consistent response time while I was juggling 20 Google Chrome tabs and streaming a 1080p video of The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, but I did notice a slowdown when loading images on   . On the Geekbench 4 overall performance test, the Acer Chromebook 11 scored a low 1,366, which is well under the 4,449 Chromebook average. However, this doesn’t mean that the processor is inherently slow at performing normal tasks but rather that it is slower when emulating Android apps. The Lenovo 500e Chromebook and Dell Chromebook 5190 did much better due to their Celeron N3450 CPUs, at 4,355 and 4,193, respectively. MORE: Should I Buy a Chromebook? Buying Guide and Advice When we tested the Acer Chromebook 11’s web performance on the JetStream JavaScript benchmark, it scored a solid 54.2. While it landed under the 64.4 category average, it’s in line with the Lenovo 500e Chromebook (53.3) and the Dell Chromebook 5190 (54.5). On the WebGL Aquarium benchmark, the Acer Chromebook 11 displayed 500 fish at 46 frames per second, matching the Dell and beating the 42-fps category average. However, the Lenovo performed at a smoother 53 fps. Chrome OS and Android Apps The Chrome OS strips down everything you’d expect from a normal operating system and fits the most basic necessities into the Google Chrome web browser. However, although the OS is pretty barren, the Google Play store allows the addition of Android apps, which makes it somewhat more of an actual operating system by letting you download just about any app or game you would on a typical Android device. Battery Life Whether you have to deal with a long day of school, work or both, the Acer Chromebook 11 will survive right alongside you. After continuously surfing the web over Wi-Fi at 150 nits of brightness, the battery lasted a solid 9 hours and 20 minutes, closing in on the 9:26 Chromebook average. However, the Lenovo 500e Chromebook and the Dell Chromebook 5190 did slightly better, at 9:47 and 9:50, respectively. Webcam The Acer Chromebook 11’s webcam did a good job of replicating the green and white shades from my flannel, and it also caught a few strands of hair on my head. And the camera didn’t blow out the image when I faced it toward the window on a sunny day. However, the overall quality was very grainy and lacked detail. To be fair, I’ve seen more expensive laptops with worse webcams. Heat After streaming a 15-minute HD video, the Acer Chromebook 11 remained a cold customer, as its underside hit only 94 degrees Fahrenheit, which is just under our 95-degree comfort threshold. The center of the keyboard and touchpad hit 89 and 79 degrees, respectively. Warranty and Support The Acer Chromebook 11 comes with a one-year limited warranty. See how Acer performed on our Tech Support Showdown and Best and Worst Brands ranking. Bottom Line For $269, you get a snazzy-looking Chromebook that will last through the day and power through some moderate multitasking. However, that sub-$300 price comes with a cost: The Acer Chromebook 11 is saddled with some pretty awful speakers, a shallow keyboard and weak Android emulation. If you can spend a few extra bucks, consider the Dell Chromebook 5190, which has more powerful performance, a brighter display, a durable chassis and touch-screen options, and starts at $289. Overall, the Acer Chromebook 11 is a solid choice and will get you through the day without trouble, but you could do better for a similar price.

Leave that iguana in the jungle expert tells Costa Rica

first_imgRelated posts:Hunters attack park rangers with machetes in Braulio Carrillo National Park Animal abuse reports on the rise Costa Rican lawmakers weigh ban on hunting for sport Rescuers free dogs, birds in another puppy mill raid Thousands of parrots, monkeys, iguanas, toucans, turtles and other rain forest animals are kept as exotic pets in Costa Rica, a practice putting some species at risk, according to experts.The Central American country, famous for its rich biodiversity, won plaudits from conservationists two years ago for banning sport hunting in a pioneering move to protect wild animals.But scientists and activists — gathered this week for the country’s first-ever conference on the issue of captive wildlife — say tropical animals face another major threat in Costa Ricans’ long-time love of exotic pets.“There are no precise figures, but we know it’s a problem of great magnitude, because a study by the Environment Ministry found that 25 percent of households have a parrot or a parakeet as a pet,” said Andrea Aguilar of the Instituto Asis, a key figure behind the conference.That would add up to nearly 400,000 exotic birds in cages, she said.Aguilar’s institute runs a shelter for wild animals in La Fortuna de San Carlos, a lush region in northern Costa Rica that draws large numbers of foreign tourists with its famous wildlife and tropical vegetation.The shelter takes in wild animals kept as pets that fall sick or are wounded by people, cars or electric shocks.It gives them veterinary care and, when possible, prepares them for an eventual return to the wild.“Costa Rican law forbids keeping wild species as pets, but the law isn’t enough because there’s a very deep-rooted custom. People don’t realize that wild animals are not and cannot be pets,” Aguilar told AFP in an interview ahead of the First Congress on Wildlife Rescue, Recovery and Freedom in San José.She said people have a range of reasons for keeping pets such as white-faced capuchin monkeys, green iguanas or songbirds. They are drawn to the animals’ beauty, they want to entertain their children or they feel it brings them social status.But the underlying problem is that people are largely ignorant of the animals’ diets, growth, life span, habitat, diseases and behavior.“A family falls in love with a baby white-faced capuchin because it’s funny and affectionate, but when it reaches 2 years old its behavior will change. It will become aggressive, bite and pull people’s hair. That’s when it becomes a problem at home,” she said.Such animals often end up being mistreated or killed, or, with luck, in a shelter, she said.By that point returning them to their native environment is difficult. They lack survival skills and are unlikely to be accepted by other members of their species. An iguana in Costa Rica. Rodrigo Arangua/AFPTraffic in exotic animalsThe international traffic in exotic animals exacerbates the problem.The illegal $20-billion-a-year trade has taken a major toll on Costa Rica’s biodiversity, as animals are captured and sold abroad, Aguilar said.One of the goals of the three-day conference is to prod the Costa Rican government to expand environmental education programs for locals, foreign visitors and ecotourism operators.“It’s important to make people understand that wild animals have to live in the forest, because they have different needs from domesticated animals,” said Aguilar.Protecting the environment is also key for the Costa Rican economy, which depends heavily on tourism and attracted 2.4 million visitors last year — many of them drawn by the country’s tropical wildlife and forests.

British Airways takes Flight to Islamabad

first_imgBritish Airways takes Flight to IslamabadBritish Airways takes Flight to Islamabad in time for EIBBritish Airways is beginning flights between London and Islamabad next week.  The final touches are coming together for the airline’s return ahead of the first flight on Sunday June 2.The three-per-week service is operated on a three-class Boeing 787 Dreamliner with World Traveller (long-haul economy), World Traveller Plus (long-haul premium economy) and Club World (long-haul business class) available. The 787 is British Airways’ newest long-haul aircraft that is 20 per cent more fuel efficient than other aircraft and features larger windows, mood lighting and the latest inflight entertainment system. The lower cabin pressure means customers step off the flight feeling fresh.Customers travelling can expect bespoke services to enhance the onboard experience including a halal meal option in every cabin, while the airline will also ensure sauces in every meal do not include alcohol or pork. As with any British Airways flight, customers can also pre-order a range of special meal options including vegetarian and vegan options.The airline has a number of Pakistani and British Pakistani colleagues who speak Urdu, and there has already been considerable interest from these colleagues to work on the flights.Andrew Brem, Chief Commercial Officer at British Airways, said: “The excitement is building as we put the final touches to this exciting route launch. The anticipation from customers and colleagues has been palpable and we hope customers in both the UK and Pakistan will enjoy the classically British service we offer, with thoughtful bespoke touches.”Aftab Khan who speaks both English and Urdu, and is one of the crew operating the inaugural flight, said: “I can’t wait for what will be such a wonderful occasion. To be chosen to operate this flight, with my close family links to Pakistan, is a real honour. I know that my colleagues operating the flight are just as excited.”British Airways’ long-haul flights include extremely generous hand baggage allowances – one large cabin bag with a small laptop or handbag – complimentary food and drink, online check-in and free seat selection 24 hours prior to departure. Customers landing in to London can connect on to British Airways’ network which includes over 30 destinations across North America, with over 70 flights per day to the US through the airline’s joint business with American Airlines. Customers can also connect to over 30 countries in Europe.Return fares between London and Islamabad start from as little as £448 in World Traveller, £709 in World Traveller Plus and £1,499 in Club World.  These can be reduced to as little as £248 in World Traveller, £459 in World Traveller Plus and £499 in Club World by using Avios part payment.  As always, customers can choose to cut the cost of flights by using Avios part payment. They are able to pick from a range of savings by destination and cabin. Customers making the most of this are still able to collect Avios and Tier Points on their bookings.*British Airways is amid a £6.5 billion investment for customers, including the installation of the best quality WiFi and power in every seat, fitting 128 long-haul aircraft with new interiors and taking delivery of 72 new aircraft.Source = British Airwayslast_img read more

discussion paper on bank licences is a welcome addition to policy thinking on banking The need for new banks and more competition in banking is apparent After 1993the RBI has mostly blocked entry into banking After the Finance Ministers budget speech announcement that the RBI would be giving licences for entry of new banks into the sectorthe RBI must have been under tremendous pressure both from industrial houses and non-bank financial intermediaries keen on opening banks The response to this has been the correct one Let us discuss the pros and cons of opening entry into bankingand debate how to mitigate the risks Putting forth the RBIs concerns without recommending what should be doneand leaving the issue open to debateis particularly welcome in the period after the global crisis which has shown the world how interdependent and integrated financial institutions become and a few bad and unscrupulous players can pose risks to the system The business of banking is fraught with risk A promoter putting in Rs 1000 crore of her own capital can raise another 1000 crore from othersthen leverage it to 20 times to build a bank with assets of Rs 40000 crore Given this unusually high leverage ratio which Indian banks are permittedthere are perverse incentives in the picture Even if the promoter lends one-tenth of these assetsor Rs 4000 croreto his cronieshe obtains a return of four times by reneging on these loans In the worst case there could be plain theft in the sense of wilful default by borrowers A bank on the brink of bankruptcy is typically saved by a process of being purchased by a PSU bank Promoters are able to get away scot free while cronies walk away without repaying their loan How can we deal with this There are two possibilities Firstthe ownership and governance can be left deregulated In this casebanks will come about where the incentives are wrong Regulation then needs to be robust in forcing banks to behave properly In the best of timesthis is hard Banking is a particularly opaque businessand the regulator has to struggle to keep up with the private sector In Indian finance and infrastructurewe are seeing a series of unpleasant situations where promoters launch media and political campaigns aimed at subverting regulation Given the weaknesses of Indian mediacourts and politicswe cannot be sanguine about how these battles will shape up Once the incentives of banks are wrongit is an uphill task to force them to get back to good behaviour There is also the danger of the RBI resorting to comprehensive central planningthus killing the vitality of bankingin response to these difficulties The alternative strategy is to use regulation on ownership and governance as a way of modifying the incentive structure of banks and their promoters If the incentives of banks are in the right directionthen regulators do not have to struggle as much to modify the behaviour of banks This identical issue underpins SEBIs Bimal Jalan Committee which will have a report on ownership and governance of exchanges (which are an even more sensitive problem than banks) There has been a lot of concern about industrial houses in banking At first blushthis seems misplacedbecause an unscrupulous promoter does not have to be an industrial house in order to steal But when we think more carefullyit is true that the deep pockets and political/media connections of the big industrial houses represent a bigger threat in terms of the extent to which mediacourts and politics could be subverted This reinforces the prime concern as being that of blocking unscrupulous promoters and not just industrial houses How might the benefits of entry be maximised while the lowest risks are taken The first point to emphasise is the creation of a strong deposit insurance corporationwhich is able to pre-emptively close down weak banks even before their net worth becomes negative Once this is in handit is safe to have a large number of small banks For exampleif a strong deposit insurance corporation is in placewe can be quite comfortable giving out licenses to many people to start new bankssubject to the constraint that in the first five years after the IPOthe total assets do not exceed Rs 5000 crore each As Jayanth Varma has emphasised in his Financial Express column (August 13)the RBI has long had a wrong perspective on these issues What might be a governance structure where such conflicts of interest can be avoided A structure in which the management team does not stand to strongly gain from the profits is generally a good one This requires a professional management team and a dispersed ownership As the crisis has shownthere needs to be an incentive structure for the management that induces long-term thinkingprevents excessive risks and unethical business practices There will still be a need for promoters until a diversified ownership structure can be reached and this is where the RBIs difficulty lies At the end of the daythe RBI will have to take a call about how fit and proper the applicant for the licence is A set of rules and risk-mitigation strategies can helpbut only to a limited extent Ultimatelyit will have to be a judgment call The RBI will have to assess whether Anil Ambani or Ratan Tata or whoever comes to it for a bank licence has experience in adhering to the law of the landin spirit and not just in letter India desperately needs new energies in banking The RBIs discussion document is a good step forward Now the RBI needs to display wisdom and intelligence in translating this into a steady flow of new banks coming into business every monthso that dozens of new banks come about over the next decade The writer is a professor at the National Institute of Public Finance

Wednesday Claude Puel’s side went in front through Redmond’s first half strike at St Mary’s and only a strong display from Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius prevented Southampton from winning by more Southampton haven’t reached the League Cup final since 1979 when they were beaten by Nottingham Forest Southampton’s Nathan Redmond celebrates scoring their first goal against Liverpool Reuters But by ending a run of four games without a win in all competitions they are now within touching distance of facing Manchester United or Hull at Wembley "We are deserving this result with all the many chances we had It was important to win with the clean sheet" Puel said "Liverpool had just the one chance We were unlucky at the end because we know the second leg will be very difficult" With United having won the first leg against Hull 2-0 Liverpool would love to face their old rivals at Wembley especially after losing to Manchester City on penalties in last season’s final But Jurgen Klopp’s team without a win in their last three games will need to improve significantly to overturn the deficit at Anfield in the second leg on January 25 "After the goal we conceded our reaction was not good We were not compact enough" Klopp said "Loris Karius had to save our life It’s a deserved win for Southampton but it’s only half-time in the tie" Klopp had fielded the youngest team in Liverpool’s history for Sunday’s embarrassing FA Cup draw against fourth-tier Plymouth at Anfield but his senior stars fared no better on their return to the line-up With Senegal winger Sadio Mane away at the Africa Cup of Nations Daniel Sturridge started in attack as Klopp made eight changes Klopp’s team had routed Southampton 6-1 in the League Cup quarter-finals last season and with the hosts missing dropped captain Jose Fonte a lively start suggested another emphatic display was possible Former Southampton defender Nathaniel Clyne had Liverpool’s first effort when his goalbound strike was blocked by Steven Davis Toothless Roberto Firmino had an even better chance when Adam Lallana knocked a high ball down for the Brazil forward but his powerful shot was close enough to Fraser Forster for the goalkeeper to tip over But Liverpool’s aggressive intent was undermined by their lack of focus at the back and Redmond in yards of space at the far post drew a fine stop from Karius in Southampton’s first incisive attack Puel’s side weren’t to be denied for long and in the 20th minute a woeful miskick from Reds defender Ragnar Klavan allowed Jay Rodriguez to thread a pass to Redmond who advanced into the penalty area before slotting into the far corner for his first goal since October Despite dominating possession for much of the first half Liverpool were toothless in attack and the eight-time League Cup winners almost fell further behind in the 43rd minute Once again it was slack Liverpool defending that let in the hosts with Dusan Tadic gifted time and space for a low cross to Redmond who should have done better than blast straight at Karius from close-range By the time Lallana snatched at a half-chance early in the second half Klopp had seen enough and he sent on Brazil forward Philippe Coutinho for his first appearance following a seven-week absence with an ankle injury Yet with Coutinho showing a few signs of rust on his return Liverpool still lacked a cutting edge Coutinho’s presence couldn’t cure Liverpool’s defensive failings in any case and when no-one tracked Cedric’s run into the penalty area the visitors were fortunate Southampton’s right-back shot

follow the prescribed procedure with any rigour Appointments in the central governmenthoweverare less arbitraryalthough the recruitment process is not designed to select the right person for the right job Indeedmost people recruited to man government positions are often not the right peopleeither by aptitude or by competence Once appointedfew government servants undergo any training In factfor the majority of government employeesthere is simply no facility for any training anywhere The government employees who undergo some form of training at the entry level seldom go through any other training program over the course of their long careers All the learning takes place on the jobfrom seniors and from colleaguesand in this processthe status quo is reinforced Mostly with a view to providing promotional opportunitiesthe bureaucracy operates at many more levels than is strictly necessary Since there are so many levels in every officepapers have to travel through all or most of these levels for a decision to be madeand at each level the individual concerned attempts to make some contribution or the otherout of habit or necessity or to assert his power in the hierarchy With so many levels aroundmutual consultations on file or through meetings is an inevitable consequence Every yearcentral and state governments enact several hundred lawsnot because there is a need for all of those lawsbut because it is easier to enact a law than to implement a program Most oftenlaws are alibis for inaction Of latelaws are being enacted at the prodding of civil society organisations with persistent backing from the media We now have laws guaranteeing jobseducation and soon foodthough everybody knows that an affected person would seldom go to court to demand his rights But we continue to demand more laws on all possible subjects and hope that these will be implementedhowever perfunctorilyby the same government servants In state governmentsthe secretary to the department or the head of department spends nearly 75 per cent of his working hours attending to personnel issues Transfer and posting of officialsdisciplinary proceedings against them and court cases occupy most of the productive time in a day Meetings and consultations take away most of the remaining timeleaving no scope for any sustained creative thinking or planning The administration is perpetually on firefighting mode It is overwhelmed by the sheer volume and complexity of issues it is expected to address So it is no surprise that most of the schemes and programmes devised by the government departments appear so bird-brained and flop on the ground It is from such a government that we keep expecting so much Even after passing thousands of laws and discovering that most of these do not get implementedwe keep demanding more laws It is nothing less than a kind of escapismnot confronting the reality and taking refuge behind laws behind new names and slogans Years agoVS Naipaul observed in that Indians were easily satisfied by the name of the thing without bothering about the thing itself Things will start to improve only when we will stop being obsessed with making more laws and do something concrete to change the way we administer We must begin with the recruitment of people into the government and eliminate all forms of arbitrariness and subjectivitypreferably by converting every recruitment examination into something like the JEE In order to do away with the personal interviewwhich is often used to favour preferred candidatesthe written test must include methods by which the aptitude and the preference of the candidate for the job concerned can be assessed A personal interview of any kind should be limited to only a few types of government jobs After recruitmentevery single employee must undergo appropriate training at regular intervals The multiple levels and hierarchies must be eliminated by merging some levels As a one-time exercise and to avoid employee resistancenobody needs to be terminated and everyone can be merged at a level higher than his present one Recruitments could then be made keeping in mind the reduced number of levels in the government This is eminently possible to implement Society must demand practical reform from the government and not encourage it to make more lawsestablish more institutions and come out with more

were full deliveries on the off stump from Hassan Ali and Mohammad Amir Both were wristed without much power or timing to mid-on That was when it hit you that something is wrong with Kohli When it’s his day he sends these in the arc anywhere from wide mid-on to midwicket It’s one of those no-risks high output shots for Kohli Something he does in sleep as they say When he is in outrageous form he would shuffle in quickly and even whip it between square-leg and midwicket Something was wrong on Sunday though Neither the timing — the ball just about limped along to the fielder nor the placement — the first was a dot and the second yielded just one run was right He let out a grimace even From then on he constantly started to fiddle with the bat-grip and check the bottom-half of the bat Little tell-tale signs that he wasn’t happy 435 Nothing much had gone right for Kohli in the last 13-odd overs Full deliveries were bunted straight to long-on short-of-length deliveries were punched to backward point or at best a single to sweeper cover The pressure was ratcheting up when Wahab Riaz gifted him with a hit-me ball Full and not far from his hitting range Kohli went for the whip Blink and ball has been dispatched to the midwicket boundary Nope it had just about rolled straight to midwicket fielder within the circle The bat rolled shut rather quickly the bottom-hand hadn’t kicked in enough to either give power or direction and the top-hand had collapsed all too quickly Now you knew that Kohli was in real trouble here How was the jail-break going to happen 436 Wahab with the slower cutter that had the ball climbing up awkwardly By this time Yuvraj Singh was already flowing along and Kohli would later call this phase as “batting like a club-cricketer” It wasn’t a surprise that he couldn’t control the bounce and the ball looped up softly just beyond square-leg It wasn’t a pull neither was it his famous swat-flick; it was just an awkward attempt at getting some runs somehow Luckily for him Pakistan fielders were butter-fingered and soft-hearted to seize any game-turning moments How was he going to turn things around Would he now start slogging Would he start moving around the crease and try heaving and tonking Do the stuff he doesn’t do normally The Jail-Break Moment 444 He had just played one more ball after that dropped catch A weak scoop off a slower one that had landed safely in untenanted area on the field There was no signs that he was beginning to slog but then there was no signs that the timing was returning to him when this fourth delivery of the 45th over happened It was a slower one from Hasan Ali the one that loops up almost reaching chest high when Kohli came up with a spectacular response If there was an urge to slog he would have gone across the line with an attempted drag-pull If he had told himself all-or-bust he would have swiped it to the leg side The mind hadn’t given up but Somehow despite the presence and associated pressure of batsmen in the dressing room Kohli wasn’t yet ready to throw in the towel Instead he decided to go in the ‘V’ to long-on But the ball wasn’t there for such traditional response unless he had gone for a tennis-like flat-batted horizontal shot ala Manish Pandey The ball was still climbing when Kohli began to bring his bat down in conventional fashion as he would do for a punch down the ground That he has one of the better short-arm jabs in business we know but it’s easier to do in the traditional pull shot but not as easy to incorporate it in a punch down the ground Somehow he does it Not only that some ferocious power kick in but the ball clears long-on rather comfortably This was the jail-break moment and he let every Pakistani in the field know it with a scream Finding the answers 451 A yorker well outside off stump from Wahab Riaz The end result — a four of course — wasn’t a surprise But the shot was A slice reaching out well away from the body with hardly much footwork — wasn’t pure Kohli The taller Yuvraj Singh has done it often in the past only the knees would buckle down and he would hunch down on his knees almost to maintain balance reach out with his longer limbs and slice it square to backward point boundary This time Kohli decided to take a leaf out of Yuvraj’s book 465 A full-length delivery from Hasan Ali outside off and Kohli comes up with the shot that Steve Smith almost pulled off in the IPL final against Mitchell Johnson Kohli held his balance and got the bottom-hand kicking in overtime to not only get under the ball but give it enough power and direction and the ball flew over cover boundary for a thrilling six A six over cover used to be such a rarity in the decades gone by but these days it doesn’t raise eyebrows The panache and skill in the Kohli hit over covers would have even made the jaded cricket fan go wow For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Reuters | Rio De

stunningly filthy Olympic sailing venue Speaking after the end of the men’s RS:X final on Sunday that left him off the podium in seventh overall he praised the quality of the Olympic sailing

Unfortunately in a week it will all be polluted again” Water pollution has been a hot topic in Rio and has dogged Games organizers since they were awarded hosting rights seven years ago Promises to clean up the bay by building new sewers and sewage treatment plants and collecting tons of garbage washed into it by rain remain largely unmet raising concern athletes might fall ill or that trash and other flotsam might damage or catch on boats undermining fair competition Studies have found high levels of disease-causing pathogens in the bay but Rio’s organizing committee and World Sailing the sport’s governing body say daily government tests show the waters are within World Health Organization limits for safe “primary contact” such as swimming Sailing is considered less-risky “secondary contact” The state government has built trash barriers on local rivers and hired a fleet of boats to scoop up garbage The government however is broke having trouble paying employees or staffing
