Delhi Dynamos players forced to train wearing masks due to smog trouble

first_imgTo keep air pollution at bay, the players of Indian Super League (ISL) franchise Delhi Dynamos practiced at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium in Delhi wearing masks, coach Miguel Angel Portugal said here on Sunday.”It’s a problem. We trained wearing masks. That is a problem not only for players but for the people as well,” Miguel told reporters here when quizzed whether the worsening air condition in the capital has affected their training schedule.”We were not allowed to go out during those days in Delhi and the players mostly stayed indoors,” Miguel said.The pollution worsened again on Sunday with officials warning of little relief in sight from the smog, which has even caused an airline to cancel flights to the world’s most polluted capital.The coach hoped the smog issue won’t be a problem during match days as they play their first home game on December 2 against NorthEast United.”I think by that time the issue won’t be there that much. As far as smog is concerned, the players release toxin while playing so it won’t affect them. It could be a problem for the normal people,” the Spanish coach added.Portugal earlier expressed that Indian football needs icons like cricket has Virat Kohli.”Indian football needs to develop players like (Indian cricket team captain) Virat Kohli who will then carry the team in the future and inspire youngsters to play the sport. The development of youngsters is very important for any country’s progress in a sport and this league will help in that,” Portugal said.advertisementlast_img read more

Mourinho won’t rule out Man Utd move for Alexis

Sánchez The 29-year-old is wanted by Manchester City but the Red Devils have reportedly made a late swoop for the Arsenal man Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has refused to rule out a move for Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez.The Chile international has been widely tipped to join Manchester City, either in the January window or when his contract runs out this summer, but United are reported to have entered the race.And in his press conference on Friday, the United boss did not deny his club could move for Alexis.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player “I don’t know if ethical or correct,” he told reporters.”The word we can find to be speaking about players of other clubs. If somebody speaks of one of my players to tell we are interested or we are not interested, I wouldn’t be very, very happy.”Sanchez is an Arsenal player, I don’t know but probably this weekend he is going to defend Arsenal colours so I don’t think it’s correct to say things about Alexis Sanchez.”At the general level what I can say is myself and the Manchester United board, the owners, we don’t believe a lot in the January market, we don’t believe in signing a player just to sign a player, just to do something, we don’t believe in that.Alexis Sanchez“What we believe really is there are some players in football world if you have the chance to sign them in January, in March or in July, you have to try and that’s it.”But in relation to Alexis Sanchez I don’t say a word. The only word I can say is he is a phenomenal player, apart from that an Arsenal player and I feel I shouldn’t say much more than this.”Goal understands that City remain hopeful of signing Alexis, but they are wary of overpaying for the star, whom Arsenal value at £35 million.It was reported on Thursday that United have approached Arsenal regarding Alexis, although senior City sources are themselves unaware if that is merely mischief making – either on the part of agents or their rivals – or a genuine attempt to stage an eleventh hour coup.Alexis has made 21 appearances for the Gunners in all competitions this season, scoring eight goals and providing four assists.United have recruited aggressively under Mourinho’s management, spending £145.8m on Romelu Lukaku, Victor Lindelof and Nemanja Matic in the summer transfer window.last_img read more

US retail sales rose a solid 08 per cent last month

first_imgWASHINGTON — U.S. retail sales rose at a healthy pace in October, though the gains were likely boosted by one-time factors such as hurricane recovery spending and higher gas prices.The Commerce Department said Thursday that retail sales rose a seasonally adjusted 0.8 per cent last month, following two months of slight declines. Excluding gasoline sales, which were inflated by higher prices, sales climbed a still-solid 0.5 per cent.The figures suggest that consumers are spending at a modest pace, fueled by steady job gains and mild wage increases. Americans lifted their spending over the summer and fall at the fastest six-month pace in four years. Yet business spending on machinery, computers and buildings barely increased in the July-September quarter, leaving consumers shouldering more of the burden of maintaining growth.Christopher Rugaber, The Associated Presslast_img read more

Fort St John Burger King hosting fundraiser for employee battling cancer this

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Burger King restaurant in Fort St. John is going to be hosting a fundraiser for one of its own employees facing a battle against cancer.Burger King owner Trevor Bolin said that 15-year-old Alaya McCormick, who works at the restaurant, was recently diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a form of cancer that affects white blood cells known as lymphocytes.Since her recent diagnosis, Alaya has had to travel to Vancouver, where she is currently undergoing radiation and chemotherapy treatment. Since she’ll have to miss the first month of school, Alaya’s mom has had to take off at least one month of work to be with her daughter while she undergoes treatment.Bolin said that to help raise money to cover travel, food, rent, and other expenses for the family during the treatment, the Burger King will be donating a portion of the proceeds from every Whopper sold on Wednesday, September 19th to the McCormick’s.“She’s a very bright, very, very cheerful girl. She works at Burger King so it kind of hit home twice for us on this one. One of her biggest concerns when she first found out she was sick and had to go to Vancouver was if her job would be waiting for her when she came back. That meant a lot to me, she means a lot to me, and the community means a lot to me,” said Bolin.A GoFundMe campaign that was set up for the McCormick’s at the beginning of September raised nearly $13,000 from a goal of $5,000.The fundraiser is taking place from 5:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. this Wednesday at the Burger King in Fort St. John, located on Alaska Road South.For more details, visit the fundraiser’s Facebook event page: read more

Brock researcher to study effects of flame retardants on Great Lakes

Ian Brindle will look at the effects of flame retardants that are deposited into the Great Lakes. Seen here: Lake Superior.Flame retardants – chemicals that prevent or minimize the spread of fire – are all around us, contained in mattresses, computers, television sets, microwave ovens and many other household items.These chemicals are released into the environment in different ways, creating concerns for human and animal health in the process. Studies have linked exposure to polybrominated diphenyl ethers with the impairment of neurological development of babies and small children, for example.Chemist Ian Brindle is concerned about these health impacts. He says scientists need to know how much of – and where – these flame retardant chemicals are deposited.To that end, Brindle and his team were awarded a $66,000-grant from Ontario’s Ministry of the Environment to measure the bioaccumulation in the environment of flame retardants and their byproducts deposited in the Great Lakes.Using sophisticated extraction and analysis systems in collaboration with ministry, the team will analyze sediment core and aquatic organism samples, collected by Environment Canada staff from sites across the Great Lakes basin, for these chemicals.Ian BrindleBesides looking for the specific chemical compounds in the samples, the team also wants to gauge the presence of their metabolites and impurities. Metabolites are molecules formed as part of the biochemical process of degrading the compounds. Impurities are byproducts formed during the manufacture of the commercial product.The team will also take samples from fish and other aquatic organisms to assess how the concentrations of flame retardant chemicals become magnified through the food chain.“Basically, the research will improve our methods of detection so that we can actually measure the flame retardants at low concentrations and understand their history and mobility in the food web,” Brindle says.“It also gives us information on lifetimes [of the chemicals] and things like that, especially when we find metabolites because then we can start to imagine what happens as Chemical A gets transformed into Chemical B as a result of the various interactions.”In addition to developing better detection methods, the research will also try to map where the chemicals come from and where they’ll end up.Brindle explains that flame retardants get into the water, soil, and air from a number of sources, including effluents released from industries and the breakdown of wastes.“What happens when your computer dies?” he says. “It doesn’t go to heaven – it often goes to a landfill site.”He explains that the chemicals then leach into the soil from the discarded items and are slowly washed into the lakes. There, the chemicals attach themselves to organic material and drop to the lake’s bottom. This is called a sink.Brindle says the Great Lakes basin is an ideal location for the research.“I think the research grant is great and will help us get the data,” he says. “Because the Great Lakes are essentially the repository for a lot of stuff that’s initially on the land or even in the air, and because the catchment is enormous, it’s important to gather the information to get a better understanding of these transport processes and understand their sources and sinks.”The grant will wrap up at the end of 2013. read more

Urgent electoral reforms needed ahead of polls in Côte dIvoire – UN

Doudou Diène, who is charged by the UN Human Rights Council to monitor, report and advise on the situation of human rights in Côte d’Ivoire, urged the authorities there to accelerate the resolution of substantive issues, including the reform of the Independent Electoral Commission and the updating of the electoral list.The expert, who during a 13-day visit to the country met with officials, civil society and members of the diplomatic corps, also urged officials to speed up “the unbiased reintegration of ex-combatants, and the organisation of trials related to the post-election crisis, as well as reparation for victims of the crisis.”The West African country was split by civil war in 2002. A 2010 presidential election, meant to be a culminating point in the peace process, resulted in months of violence when Laurent Gbagbo refused to step down after losing to Alassane Ouattara. Mr. Gbagbo finally surrendered the following April. The human rights expert welcomed the improved security situation, supported by authorities establishing State institutions and re-launching the political dialogue between the Government and the opposition. “I encourage the different political parties to refrain from divisive comments that could undermine the success of the ongoing political talks,” he said. The Independent Expert also acknowledged the authorities’ efforts to re-establish the rule of law and reinforce the democratic process that included extending the mandates of the Dialogue, Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the Special Investigation Cell, provisionally releasing detainees linked to the electoral crisis, and urging exiles to return. Among challenges in the country, Mr. Diène expressed concern at the slow pace of judicial proceedings in following up the recommendations of the National Commission of Inquiry, which had reported that grave human rights violations were committed by both sides during the crisis. That recommendation is part of a comprehensive report that Mr. Diène will present to the Geneva-based Council next month. Independent experts or special rapporteurs are appointed by the Council to examine and report back on a country situation or a specific human rights theme. The positions are honorary and the experts are not UN staff, nor are they paid for their work. read more

Jealous husband used wallmounted iPad in his smart home to spy on

The details of the incidents emerged as Ross Cairns was convicted of offences of stalkingCredit:Ricky Champagne/Cavendish Press Manchester magistrates’ court heard the the couple had been married for 16 years and had two daughters now aged five and three. Mrs Cairns told the hearing: “He repeated the conversation that I had with my mum. He said ‘oh, you don’t love me any more’. I told him that I would ring the police. I rang his mum to come to get him.”Mrs Cairns switched off the camera facility on the iPad and brought in an IT engineer to change the password on the system so Cairns could no longer access it – but the court heard he still logged in remotely.Whilst she was on holiday she found her Bumble account had been blocked due to “inappropriate content” and discovered an intimate photo had been posted on her profile.Prosecutor Neil White said: “They lived in a ‘smart house’ with various aspects of the property connected by an iPad-like device, including the alarm, lighting and heating.”He has been accessing the system when they were living separately and listened in on conversations. We submit that hacking into her phone to send messages, and listening in on conversations is stalking.”Cairns had denied wrongdoing, claiming he only accessed the home system to change the lights or adjust the volumes on the TV and not to view into the house. However, he was convicted of offences of stalking between August and November of last year and of using threatening behaviour towards his wife. A jealous husband used a wall-mounted iPad that controls the heating and lights in his home to spy on his estranged wife a court has heard.Electronics expert Ross Cairns, 35, monitored the movements and conversations of spouse Catherine by logging into a static device remotely using his mobile phone.The wall-mounted iPad had been installed by the couple as part of a home automation system at their house allowing them to access lighting, central heating and the alarm system when not at home.But after they split up and Cairns moved out, he used an app on his iPhone to log into an audio facility on the iPad so he could eavesdrop undetected as 33-year old accountant Mrs Cairns talked of their crumbling marriage.On one occasion when Mrs Cairns told her mother she no longer loved her husband, the father of two suddenly turned up on the doorstep and repeated the conversation she had just had, saying: “Oh, you don’t love me any more.”He also hacked into Mrs Cairns’ accounts on Facebook and the dating app Bumble and sent an intimate picture and obscene messages to men she had been chatting with online. Cairns will be sentenced in June. Ross Cairns Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Larmours outstanding U20 Six Nations shows why Joe Schmidt is a fan

first_imgSecurity consultant denies All Blacks ‘bugging’ chargeErasmus to give Murray every chance of being fit for Toulouse By Murray Kinsella Tuesday 21 Mar 2017, 3:00 PM iTunes 32 Comments Share304 Tweet Email2 33,789 Views Larmour’s outstanding U20 Six Nations shows why Joe Schmidt is a fan ‘You could put Jordan at nine or 10 and he’d probably do as well, he’s just an outstanding player.’center_img Updated 3.15pmAFTER THE IRELAND U20s finished their Six Nations campaign with an agonising 14-10 defeat to Grand Slam winners England last Friday night, Jordan Larmour was the name on everyone’s lips at Donnybrook.The Ireland fullback was superb once again for Nigel Carolan’s side, cutting past English defenders almost every time he was in possession and generally thrilling the crowd with his footwork, balance, power and acceleration.Over the course of this year’s championship, Larmour showed exactly why Joe Schmidt is among his fans, with the Ireland coach having called him into senior national squad training last November. Larmour had a superb U20 Six Nations for Ireland. Source: James Crombie/INPHOIt capped off an outstanding championship for Larmour, who played on the right wing in Ireland’s first three games – scoring two tries against Italy – before a move into fullback for the clashes with Wales and France.“It’s the first time really, I’ve only played two matches at fullback,” said Larmour of the shift to 15. “I am really enjoying it though – I get a bit more ball, in the action a bit more.“Field position is the challenge, reading the 10 and knowing when he’s going to kick it, but I’m really enjoying it. I’m open to playing anywhere and it adds another string to my bow, but fullback, wing – I’m happy with either.”Larmour is a product of St. Andrew’s College and impressed at outside centre in his school days. However, his attacking skillset is suited to the back three and it was always likely that he would advance up the age grades and into senior rugby out wide.Ireland coach Carolan feels that Larmour would make an impact from anywhere in the backline, but given the strength of Calvin Nash and Tommy O’Brien on the wings, it made sense to slot Larmour into fullback in the latter stages of the Six Nations.“You could put Jordan at nine or 10 and he’d probably do as well, he’s just an outstanding player,” said Carolan. “There are a few bits that could certainly be polished, but he’s certainly got real x-factor.“He’s so dangerous on the ball and it was just important we had all our best players on the pitch to give us a chance. Whether he’s at fullback, on the wing, he’s equally good.” Larmour in St. Andrew’s College colours last year. Source: Gary Carr/INPHOA St. Mary’s College RFC clubman, Larmour is currently a member of the Leinster sub-academy and will progress onto a full academy contract with his native province next season.He has already been involved with Leo Cullen’s senior squad on the training pitch and has has six British and Irish Cup caps to his name already, including two starts on the right wing and three tries.Larmour has also enjoyed that honour of being called into senior Ireland training at Carton House under Schmidt.Indeed, Schmidt is a big fan of the 19-year-old’s abilities, and one can only imagine that the Ireland coach feels he could help Larmour become an even better player.While Larmour – who also impressed as a hockey player in St. Andrew’s – possesses a brilliant individual running threat, there is scope for improving his awareness and distribution when in possession.It’s likely that those skills are the next stage in Larmour’s ongoing development, but Carolan doesn’t see any reason why the U20s star cannot step into senior rugby sooner rather than later.At Donnybrook last Friday, there were early calls for Schmidt – watching on from the main stand – to fast-track the exciting U20s star into Ireland’s senior set-up and Carolan believes the potential is there.“There’s certain aspects to his game, but I think within the next year, with the appropriate exposure that he gets over the next six to eight months, he can’t be a million miles away,” said Carolan.Larmour himself is showing no signs of over-confidence despite his clear promise, and was focusing on the collective after Ireland’s defeat to England, a result that came despite a performance the fullback said was “the best we’ve played all season.” Larmour will advance into the Leinster academy next season. Source: Ryan Byrne/INPHO“The ball was a bit greasy and the floodlights at one point, the ball was kicked to me and I didn’t know where it was,” said Larmour of his own display. “But I’m happy enough, even with a good few work-ons after this.”Currently enjoying a hard-earned week off after the Six Nations, Larmour and his fellow U20 players will return to their club and provincial set-ups next week to start into the next block of their development, but the Junior World Championship is already in mind.Ireland will travel to Georgia at the end of May to take on a pool containing New Zealand, Italy and Georgia, eager to build on what they feel has been clear progress over the course of the Six Nations.Larmour has made an impact, but he’s simply keen to keep getting better as part of this Ireland U20 side.“The World Cup is going to be a big challenge, so I’ll try and get another pre-season under my belt. In the gym, get the fitness levels up, skills up, then just come back raring to go.“Everyone in the changing room is disappointed [after the England defeat], but we know we’re going to come back stronger from this. A lot of positives and everyone is raring to go for the World Cup. We can’t wait.”Subscribe to The42 Rugby Show podcast here: Android Mar 21st 2017, 3:00 PM Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Short URLlast_img read more

Deadmau5 To Take His BrandNew Cube V3 Show On Tour This Fall

first_imgThe prolific GRAMMY-nominated DJ/producer debuted his first LED cube at Coachella 2010. Now he’s ready to tour with his new, insanely high-tech, 360-degree-rotating “cube v3,” which he’ll debut at Ultra Miami this SaturdayAna YglesiasGRAMMYs Mar 29, 2019 – 4:17 pm Dance music fans have been buzzing since GRAMMY-nominated DJ/producer deadmau5 announced a 16-date U.S. tour this fall, which he’s dubbed the “cube v3 tour” and will kick off in Dallas on Sept. 12.What’s the big fuss, you ask? Isn’t he always DJing in Vegas? Doesn’t everyone DJ now? News Joel Zimmerman, a.k.a. deadmau5, is most often associated with his LED mouse head-shaped helmet, which he has donned in various iterations for the last decade at raves and music festivals across the globe. While many DJs since have tried to emulate his aesthetic and appeal with their own helmets, the prolific Canadian DJ/producer is the type of artist who not only pays attention to every detail, but one that is ever-evolving and always finding new ways to innovate.Case in point: cube v3, his latest creation, is a high-tech LED modular, 360-degree-rotating video cube and the latest version of his DJ booth, which he’ll debut at Ultra Music Festival in Miami this Saturday.After deadmau5 has his first show with cube v3 this weekend, he’ll transport it across the U.S. this fall for his 16-date cube v3 tour, kicking off on September 12 in Dallas, followed by two shows in Austin, Tex. on Sept. 20–21, then three nights in Los Angeles. He’ll close out 2019 in San Francisco on Dec. 30 and will finish up the tour with four East Coast dates in January and February, with the final date on Feb. 6 in Brooklyn, N.Y.  Deadmau5 debuted his first LED cube (a stationary one) back at Coachella 2010, wowing the audience as he DJed from behind its visual-filled screen. Six years later, cube 2.0 was born, complete with 3-D graphics and moving panels, followed by cube 2.1, which he brought with him for his 2017 “lots of shows in a row tour.” Soon, cube v3 will come to life, thanks to the help of new production designer Chris Schroeder, along with technical design from Collyns Stenzel and video content and programming from  deadmau5 himself. A press release explains that the new cube “will be the most complex production he has ever presented, changing positions from 90 degrees into 45 degrees and rotate 360 degrees with mind bending content from deadmau5 & his custom touch designer system.””It’s turned [into] a cool thing that someone else will find useful and use in their project,” Zimmerman told Miami New Times. “I like doing this. I like being here. I like creating. I like tech problems. I like fighting with all these f***ing nerds…That’s the point I’m trying to make with cubev3, not ‘Oh, come listen [to] f***ing ‘Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff’…and give me your money.’ Well, give me your money, because this isn’t free.”To see cube v3’s debut, you can tune into Ultra’s website at 10:00pm PT/1:00am ET this Saturday, March 30.To catch the tour, you can register for the fan presale now, which begins on April 3.
