Rangers Get Capital-ized, 7-3

first_imgTweetPinShare0 Shares NEW YORK — The Washington Capitals are growing up.“Everyone’s more mature,” Jason Chimera said after the Capitals closed with six straight goals to beat the struggling New York Rangers 7-3 on the night of Dec. 20.Washington trailed 3-1 after one period but rallied for its fifth straight win. The Capitals are 24-6-2 and tied with Dallas for the NHL lead with 50 points. They lead the Metropolitan Division by eight points over the Rangers.“(There is) never enough of a cushion,” Chimera said. “You want to get as much as you can.”They certainly did against their longtime rival. Justin Williams had two goals and an assist, Marcus Johansson had a goal and two assists. Chimera, Evgeny Kuznetsov, T.J. Oshie and Alex Ovechkin also scored. Nicklas Backstrom added three assists and Braden Holtby made 33 saves. Eleven Capitals finished with at least one point.The Rangers, meanwhile, have lost three in a row and six of eight to fall to 19-12-4. J.T. Miller, Chris Kreider and Dan Boyle scored for New York. Henrik Lundqvist made 19 saves before being pulled, and then Magnus Hellberg made four saves in his NHL debut.“There’s no doubt in my mind that the answer is in that dressing room,” said Vigneault, who broke up his top line of Rick Nash, Derick Brassard and Mats Zuccarello. Nash skated with Brassard and Miller. Zuccarello was put on a line with Tanner Glass and Kevin Hayes.Williams’ ninth of the season opened the scoring at 12:03. Stationed in front of Lundqvist, Williams tipped Taylor Chorney’s shot from the left circle into the net to give the Capitals a 1-0 lead.Miller equalized 99 seconds later with his seventh of the season, and then New York took a 2-1 lead at 15:44 on Kreider’s unassisted goal, his sixth. The advantage grew to 3-1 on Boyle’s power-play goal with 1:57 left in the period.“We had a great response after giving up the first goal,” New York captain Ryan McDonagh said. “We felt really good about ourselves.”In the second period, Kuznetsov lifted a highlight-reel backhander over Lundqvist at 5:25, and Oshie’s 13th of the season at 7:01 tied the game 3-3.Washington took the lead 4:02 later on Ovechkin’s power-play goal. Left uncovered in his customary spot in the left circle, the Capitals’ captain one-timed Johansson’s feed over Lundqvist’s glove to put Washington ahead 4-3.Williams completed the barrage with his second of game — this one on the power play — with less than a minute left in the period.“I see a lot of good building blocks,” said Williams, who signed a two-year, $6.5 million free agent contract with Washington on July 1. “We still wanted to push forward, we still wanted to play hard.”Lundqvist allowed five goals on 24 shots and was replaced by Hellberg before the start of the third period.“I have to look at my own game,” Lundqvist said. “I have to be better. I know that.”Chimera’s short-handed goal 2:26 into the third pushed Washington’s lead to 6-3. Johansson’s goal 2:10 later ended the scoring.“We did well in the big moments,” Williams said.(DENIS P.

Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami make India pace unit peerless in Test cricket

first_imgJasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami make India pace unit peerless in Test cricketIndia tour of West Indies: India’s fast-bowling trio of Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami have taken 172 wickets since 2018, making it the most successful pace battery in world cricket in the said period.advertisement Next India Today Web Desk New DelhiSeptember 3, 2019UPDATED: September 3, 2019 10:44 IST Ishant Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami have picked up 50-plus wickets each since 2018 in Tests (AP Photos)HIGHLIGHTSJasprit Bumrah picked up 13 wickets to top the bowling charts in West IndiesBumrah, Shami and Ishant have picked up more than wickets each since 2018Bumrah said the camaraderie among the pacers in the India dressing room is greatIndia cricket team has always had batting superstars. The Tiger Pataudis, the Sunil Gavaskars, the Sachin Tendulkars and the Rahul Dravids had scored tons of runs but have always lacked a pace bowling unit that terrorised opposition batsmen. The Asian country has produced some of the best spinners and even fast bowlers but pace bowling units were a rarity.However, over the last 2 seasons, India’s pace bowlers have been setting up Test wins. Virat Kohli, as he himself points out, is lucky to have a bunch of pacers who can help India take 20 wickets in a Test and get the job done.India vs West Indies, 2nd Test Day 4: Report | HighlightsEver since Jasprit Bumrah was added to the Test set-up, the Indian pace battery has looked a class apart. Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami have been extremely consistent as well as the trio has hunted together and clinched India some of their biggest overseas wins in the last 20 months. With Umesh Yadav and Bhuvneshwar Kumar competing for spots in the playing XI, India’s pace battery looks lethal.And the numbers instantiate India’s pace bowling success in the last 2 years. Since 2018, no team has had more than 2 bowlers picking up 50 Test wickets. India have three in Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Ishant Sharma.50 wickets and counting since 2018Jasprit Bumrah, who has evolved into one of the best all-format bowlers, has picked 62 wickets since he made his Test debut in South Africa in January 2018.

Last year, we played a lot of away matches. Lot of camaraderie is there, we back each other. Even if things are going well, we discuss how to get better. We have a good relationship, all of us. We want to get better every year,” Bumrah said during the Jamaica Test that India won by 257 runs.Bumrah: “Ishant has played a lot more cricket than all of us. Shami has also played a lot of cricket. I am the new guy and I try and ask them a lot of questions. I get to know what works in different conditions. If the wicket is not doing anything, what should we do.

Donald Trump sworn in as the 45th US President

The new president was to deliver an inaugural address lasting about 20 minutes centered on the campaign themes that he used in his improbable November election victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton. Clinton attended the ceremony with her husband, former President Bill Clinton.“It will be optimistic. It will be visionary, but it’s going to be philosophical,” his spokesman, Sean Spicer, said of the speech, speaking to NBC on Friday morning. Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States on Friday, succeeding Barack Obama and taking control of a divided country in a transition of power that he has declared will lead to “America First” policies at home and abroad.As scattered protests erupted elsewhere in Washington, Trump raised his right hand and put his left on a Bible used by Abraham Lincoln and repeated a 35-word oath of office from the U.S. Constitution, with U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts presiding. At Trump’s side was his wife, Melania Trump. Trump, 70, takes over a country divided after a bitter election campaign. A wealthy New York businessman and former reality TV star, he will set the country on a new, uncertain path at home and abroad.“It all begins today!” he wrote in a note on Twitter at about 7:30 a.m. on Friday “I will see you at 11:00 A.M. for the swearing-in. THE MOVEMENT CONTINUES – THE WORK BEGINS!”Away from the Capitol, masked activists ran through the streets smashing windows with hammers at a McDonald’s restaurant, a Starbucks coffee shop and Bobby Van’s Grill steakhouse several blocks from the White House. The transition from a Democratic president to a Republican took place on the West Front of the domed U.S. Capitol before a crowd of former presidents, dignitaries and hundreds of thousands of people on the grounds of the National Mall. The crowd stretched westward on a cool day of occasional light rain. They carried black anarchist flags and signs that said, “Join the resistance, fight back now.” Police used pepper spray and chased them down a major avenue, a Reuters eyewitness reported. In another location not far from the White House, protesters also scuffled with police, at one point throwing aluminum chairs at them at outdoor café.At the inaugural ceremony, former presidents George W. Bush and Jimmy Carter were also present with their wives. Bush’s father, former President George H.W. Bush, 92, was in Houston recovering from pneumonia.Trump and his vice president, Mike Pence, began the day attending a prayer service at St. John’s Episcopal Church near the White House.

Top UN health official discusses SARS with Chinese authorities

During his one-day visit to Beijing World health Organization (WHO) Director-General nominee, Jong-Wook Lee, was meeting with Vice Premier Wu Yi and other officials in the ministries of health and foreign affairs to discuss SARS and other health issues in China.As of today, China and its regions had reported 6,622 cases out of a global total of 7,183, with 453 deaths out of 514 worldwide.Yesterday, a WHO team travelled to Hebei Province bordering Beijing municipality to assess the situation in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, marking the first time that a joint WHO-Ministry of Health team has been sent to a province.WHO has expressed concern that Hebei could be particularly vulnerable to the spread of SARS, as the province has a large population of migrant workers – part of Beijing’s “floating population”.The investigation there has two objectives: to review surveillance and case reporting systems, and to visit hospitals to assess procedures for patient management and infection control. In several outbreaks elsewhere, lapses in infection control have resulted in the infection of large numbers of hospital staff.Dr. Lee, who was nominated in January for the post of Director-General, currently directs the WHO’s Stop TB initiative. If confirmed by the World Health Assembly later this month, he will succeed current Director-General Gro Harlem Brundtland for a five-year term in July. read more

UN agency convenes experts to prepare for potential highly lethal flu pandemic

Warning that a highly lethal human flu pandemic could occur at any time despite recent measures taken against a bird flu outbreak in Asia, the United Nations health agency announced today that it will bring together more than 100 health experts in Geneva next week to prepare a global battle plan to fight such a scenario. “As long as avian and human flu viruses are circulating in the environment, the ingredients for a human pandemic still exist. When the next pandemic emerges, we will be able to respond properly only if we prepare properly,” the Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Lee Jong-wook, said in a news release.While poultry culling and other measures may have reduced the likelihood of a human influenza strain spreading widely as a result of the current bird flu epidemic in Asia, experts believe that because these outbreaks come in cycles, an influenza pandemic among people must still be expected at some time in the future, WHO said.”Ongoing outbreaks reinforce the historical experience that elimination of the (Asian bird flu) virus will likely take years. During that time, a random mutation of the virus or a combination of avian influenza with human influenza could produce a strain which moves easily from person to person and produces high mortality,” the agency added. “Such a random event could occur at any time.”The meeting, from 16 to 18 March, will assess the current situation and analyze possible public health measures before and during a pandemic. “Slowing the spread of a pandemic and reducing its impact will require planning, preparation and global co-ordination,” WHO said.The specialists invited to the meeting are experts in public health, health policy, hospital management, drugs and vaccines, infection control measures, disease modelling, and risk communications. They will discuss the best use of limited supplies of vaccines and antivirals, as well as surveillance strategies to detect a new pandemic early and monitor its spread.Other topics include possible travel recommendations and early detection of changes in influenza subtypes.Over the past two months, more than 100 million birds have either died in the Asian bird flu epidemic or been culled, while there have been 33 confirmed cases of the disease’s transmission to humans, 22 of them fatal. read more

Spains new cardinal says homosexuality is a defect

first_imgPointing out a defect to a homosexual is not an offence, it is a help because many cases of homosexuality can be recovered and normalised with adequate treatment. It is not an offence, it is esteem. When someone has a defect, the good friend is the one who tells him.The archbishop was asked in the interview if he shared the view of Pope Francis, who said in July last year: “If someone is gay and seeks the Lord with good will, who am I to judge?”The Spanish archbishop, who, because of his age, will not hold a vote in the conclave that elects pontiffs, said the pope shows respect to all people but is not changing the teaching of the Church.“It is one thing to show welcome and affection to a homosexual person and another to morally justify the exercise of homosexuality,” he said.Gay and lesbian rights group Colegas called on the archbishop to retract his comment.“We hope that Fernando Sebastian will correct his words and we note that homosexuality is not a curable disease, but homophobia is,” it said in a statement.Nicolas Fernandez, head of the Malaga-based gay and lesbian rights group Entiende, added his condemnation.“It is not the first time the cardinals have said we are defective,” he said, calling for non-discrimination legislation that would condemn such “repugnant” statements.- © AFP, 2014Read: Former Pope Benedict defrocked nearly 400 priests in two years for child abuse > Read: Mary McAleese says Catholic Church ‘in denial over homosexuality for decades’ > POPE FRANCIS’ NEWLY chosen Spanish cardinal, 84-year-old Fernando Sebastian Aguilar, has described homosexuality as a “defect” that can be corrected with treatment, sparking condemnation from gay rights groups.“A lot of people complain and don’t tolerate it but with all respect I say that homosexuality is a defective way of manifesting sexuality, because that has a structure and a purpose, which is procreation,” Sebastian told Malaga newspaper Sur.The interview was published on Sunday, a week after the Spaniard was named as one of 19 new cardinals chosen by the pope, to be officially appointed on 22 February.“We have a lot of defects in our bodies. I have high blood pressure. Am I going to get angry because they tell me that? It is a defect I have that I have to correct as far as I can,” said Sebastian, who is the archbishop emeritus of the northern city of Pamplona.last_img read more

Caldwell wants more energetic performance from Scots

first_imgFormer Scotland defender Gary Caldwell has advised Alex McLeish’s men to maintain their energetic performance in subsequent games.Scotland secured their second win in 2018 by dispatching Albania thanks to goals from Steven Naismith and a rare own goal from Berat Djimsiti to seal a 2-0 win.“The team right from minute one played with energy and I think that has to be the style,” Caldwell told BBC Scotland.“When you have John McGinn, Callum McGregor, Andy Robertson, Kieran Tierney – the first thing you think about those players is energy.Euro 2020Report: Euro 2020 qualifying Group H George Patchias – September 11, 2019 Euro 2020 qualifying Group H is being controlled by France and Turkey, but Iceland is still in with a shout.Reigning world champions France ran…“They played on the front foot, they were aggressive, they tried to play in Albania’s half and they did that for all of the first half and most of the second half and got their rewards by playing with such a high tempo.“Albania are better than they looked because of the way we played.

Budget overshadows environment in Olympia

first_imgDeep recessions and multi-billion-dollar budget deficits usually aren’t good news for Mother Earth.That’s the situation in Olympia this year, where conservation groups have set modest goals, hoping to pass a few environmental bills and hold onto precious budget dollars dedicated to protecting the state’s land, water and air.The biggest environmental win of the 2011 Legislature happened Thursday, on the eve of Earth Day, when a bill that will phase out operation of the state’s only coal-fired electrical plant by 2025 cleared its final legislative hurdle and headed for Gov. Chris Gregoire’s desk. The measure requires Canadian company TransAlta to phase out its 1,460-megawatt Centralia coal plant in stages between 2020 and 2025. Supporters say the timeline allows for an orderly transition for plant workers and the local community and provides an opportunity to replace power from the Northwest’s largest coal-fired plant with energy efficient and clean resources such as wind and solar.“This is a win-win-win for our health, the environment, our economy and the Lewis County community,” said Doug Howell, director of the Coal-Free Future for Washington campaign. “This legislation — the result of environmentalists, labor unions, health experts, faith leaders, the local community, the corporation, the governor and legislators all working together — will drastically reduce the harm to human health and our environment from coal pollution.”It was good news for conservationists, though they had hoped to win a phase-out of coal by 2020. And it may help restore the state’s tarnished image as a national leader in addressing climate change.last_img read more

Study Says Houstons White Oak Bayou Could Get A New Look

first_img 00:00 /00:46 Listen – / 11Long before I-10 came along, White Oak Bayou along the edge of the Heights was once a meandering waterway with lots of turns and switchbacks. Everything changed in the 1960’s when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers installed a concrete lining as a flood control measure.But according to a study funded by the Memorial-Heights Redevelopment Authority, there are now ways to remove that lining, to bring the bayou back to a more natural state without increasing the risk of flooding.To learn more about the study’s findings, we visited Stude Park on the bayou’s banks. We met with Matthew Zeve, director of Operations for the Harris County Flood Control District (HCFCD).Zeve said the study outlines three alternatives for White Oak Bayou between Taylor and Hogan Streets. Under all those scenarios, the sloping concrete sides would be removed.“The vegetation in White Oak Bayou right now is fairly limited on what can grow on the side slopes,” explained Zeve. “What the study found is by doing different types of benches in different widths in different angles of the side slopes, it promotes different types of vegetation that can be planted that would attract other types of wildlife.”But considering White Oak Bayou can quickly rise out of its banks during a rain event like Harvey, what would be the flood control benefits?Zeve said the project could create more green space to absorb water.“Every little bit helps,” added Zeve. “And primarily what would happen is that there would be a lot more flood plain storage, a lot more volume, a place for the water to go, that doesn’t exist today.”Before any project could go forward there is the issue of funding. Estimates show the cost of the project ranging between $30 and $60 million. There is also the cost of yearly maintenance.Zeve said the Flood Control District would be a partner in that work, but another group would have to put up the bulk of the money.“We’ve said all along that the Flood Control District wasn’t going to provide funding to actually do any construction on this project, especially in the wake of Hurricane Harvey and our recovery and resilience efforts,” explained Zeve. “We need all the money we can get to focus on that.”Zeve also emphasized that the project would take a number of years to complete between design and construction. But if it does become a reality, Zeve said it could be a real boost to the city’s efforts to create green space.“It’s a highly-visible area of White Oak Bayou. You can see it from the Katy Freeway and it’s also highly-utilized with all the parks and trails along there. I think it would get a lot of publicity and visibility from the public and visitors to Houston.”You can read the study on restoring the Lower White Oak Bayou Chanel here: Share To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Xlast_img read more

New Rogue One trailer prequel cameo and we learn more about planet

first_imgThings are slowing down a little bit in the rumor department for Star Wars because we are finally getting more official news! Let’s break down the most important things to know this week.Rogue One: A Star Wars StoryThe official trailer is out!Entertainment Weekly’s Anthony Breznican is delivering another week of Rogue One stories and we got a little more information about one of the film’s main locations as well as confirmation of some speculation.Rogue One director Gareth Edwards told EW that Jedha came about because he was looking for a location that could embody the battle between good and evil.“We were trying to find a physical location we could go to that would speak to the themes of losing your faith and the choice between letting the Empire win, or evil win, and good prevailing,” he says. “It got embodied in this place we called Jedha.” Jedha is a spiritual place for believers in The Force, but at the time of Rogue One it’s occupied by the Empire. I and many others including Breznican have been speculating that Kyber crystals are what the Empire is after, ever since we first heard about the Kyber crystal crates.Edwards wouldn’t say exactly what’s on Jedha that the Empire cares so much about, but one of the actors in the film, Donnie Yen who plays Chirrut, was not afraid to give some details on the planet:.@DonnieYenCT reveals connection between planet Jeddah & light sabers! #RogueOne #StarWars #SWCE pic.twitter.com/RhAxe6O3vk— ExtraTV (@extratv) July 17, 2016 Yen spills the beans that what’s on Jedha is what is used to make lightsabers and we all know Kyber crystals play a big part in lightsaber construction.I’m very happy that Edwards has taken the time to make Jedha more than just a pitstop on Jyn’s adventure. She still very much is there to connect with Rebel sympathizers but the planet’s apparently rich history should make for some great storytelling.Speaking on the television show The Talk, Jimmy Smits finally confirmed his appearance in Rogue One.“Can you say the word cameo?” he said laughing. “Can you say the words small part?” No one is really that surprised about this one, but I am pleased that Bail Organa is being included in the film. In A New Hope we get the feeling that he’s a vital part of the Alliance and with his daughter directly involved in moving the Deathstar plans, it seems appropriate to see Bail.The question still remains if that actress who Digital Domain captured for de-aging was indeed Carrie Fisher and if we’ll see Leia in Rogue One.Star Wars RebelsLucasfilm provided us with some details on Star Wars Rebels‘ upcoming season 3. The season 3 premier is titled “Steps Into Shadow” and will be a 1 hour long event. The season will premier Saturday September 24th at 8:30pm ET.The move to Saturday is a very smart choice in my opinion, as the growing Rebels audience will be going back to school in the fall. Most of the parents who I’ve talked to who watch the show with family have said they often couldn’t tune in at the late weeknight airings because their kids were already in bed.In season three, Ezra and Sabine take on new roles and challenges as the rebels prepare for their biggest mission yet – a direct assault on the Empire. It’s a much needed change to have Ezra age and mature and I’m glad to see Sabine being developed further, but it’s a real shame that these changes will likely leave behind valued members of the Ghost crew like Hera and Zeb. Hera voice actress Vanessa Marshall is the most talented member of the  cast and her character has been getting the short end of the stick for a while now. The desire to make Ezra into a new Luke or Anakin Skywalker for the new generation is strong, but it may cause the show to fall into stagnation. We will see.I’m looking forward to the season 3 premier next month!last_img read more

Goodbye Productivity Microsoft Is Bringing Back Solitaire for Windows 10

first_img 1 min read If Windows 8 felt like a radical departure from previous iterations of Microsoft’s long-loved operating system, the tech giant is looking to inject a bit of fun familiarity back into Windows 10, which is slated for a summer release.Solitaire, which was removed from Windows 8 alongside other classics including Hearts and Minesweeper, will be baked back into Windows 10, Mashable reports.   While Solitaire will receive a spot on Windows 10’s new start menu — another feature Microsoft had removed from Windows 8 much to loyalists’ disdain — the other games must be downloaded as add-ons from the Windows Store.The addition was discovered when Microsoft rolled out a preview of the new software earlier this week. A note explains that the return of Solitaire commemorates the 25th anniversary of the game on Windows.Related: Pac-Man and Google Maps: A Genius Match April 24, 2015 Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.center_img Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Register Now »last_img read more

Code of conduct launched to stop harassment in the civil service

first_imgOmbudswoman Maria Lottides presented on Wednesday a code of conduct her office has prepared to prevent and deal with sexual harassment within the civil service.She said at present her office is looking into eight sexual harassment cases which have been pending since 2015 and highlighted how the courts have previously taken the government to task for failing to protect civil servants from falling victims to sexual harassment.At the presentation, also attended by Labour Minister Zeta Emilianidou, Lottides said that the code of conduct on sexual harassment is a very important step, as it concerns all civil servants, men and women, regardless of their employment status.The text will also be a guide for the government, as the employer, to take immediate measures to avert acts – isolated or repeated – that constitute harassment, sexual harassment and victimisation of those who may report such behaviour.Lottides said that around eight such cases filed with her office have been pending since 2015. A report is being prepared by her office for one of them, she said, while in some cases, it was deemed that the claims were not that airtight “so as to prove on our behalf that there was sexual harassment”.Emilianidou said that she would promote the code of conduct to the cabinet, “to call on all competent authorities to apply it”.“It is a very important tool because for the first time all necessary actions are being provided for anyone to be able to know how to act,” Emilianidou said.She added that harassment at work is a disciplinary offence, and that no one should tolerate such behaviour.The code of conduct in question concerns the civil service, she said, but an effort is underway for one for the private sector.“Our aim is the application of a similar code of conduct, which could be part of collective agreements,” she said.The code of conduct explains what constitutes harassment, sexual harassment, unwanted behaviour and behaviour of a sexual nature and gives instructions to employees on how to prevent it and what to do if it takes place.It also lists the responsibilities of each authority including measures for prevention and dealing with such behaviour and providing support to the victim. The reported cases are to be treated discreetly, the code of conduct says.The guide also refers to the stages of unofficial and formal processes of investigating such claims. The informal process aims at dealing directly with sexual harassment before it evolves.The code also lists myths and stereotypes about harassment.“Each supervisor, each competent authority and the public administration in general must know that harassment and sexual harassment at the work place constitute gender discrimination forbidden by law and that they have the legal responsibility to ensure a safe, dignified, healthy and friendly work environment,” Lottides said.The employer is otherwise, jointly responsible with the person who committed the acts, she said.The chairperson of the Gender Equality and Vocational Training Committee Luiza Zannetou Christodoulidou referred to the obligation of the employers to take preventive and punitive measures as soon as they are aware of any harassment.“Otherwise, the employer is held jointly responsible with the perpetrator and that is precisely why the Republic of Cyprus has been called in in some cases to pay compensation for the action of an employee, precisely because there was no such preventive treatment,” she said. Christodoulidou said that court found that the Republic, as an employer, had not informed its staff of such behaviour. “It is these gaps that the code will cover.”You May LikeCar InsuranceThe Easiest Way To Save Money On Your Car InsuranceCar InsuranceUndoBright SpotlightRanked: The 25 Greatest Rock Bands of All-TimeBright SpotlightUndoIT Gadget7 Cool Camping Gear & GadgetsIT GadgetUndo Limassol police investigating attempted murderUndoTwo days of music to dance toUndoBrazil prison riot kills 52, with 16 decapitatedUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
