New Delhi, Mar 17 (PTI) Former India hockey captain Viren Rasquinha today credited high performance director Roelant Oltmans for the national teams improved performance in recent years and said it should at least aim for a top-6 finish at the upcoming Rio Olympics. “We have had two fantastic wins over England and the Netherlands in the World League Final. Oltmans is the best possible man to coach the side. We are doing well tactically,” the 35-year-old Rasquinha, a two-time Olympian, said on the sidelines of an event. Asked if the team was lacking in any front, he said, “There is an element of consistency, which is missing, we need to improve our short corners both defensive and offensive. Defence as a team is an area we need improvement. I am sure Oltmans knows it well, he knows the players inside out.” About the prospects in Rio, he said, “Realistically, we must eye a top-6 finish. We have to climb the ladder one step at a time. First goal is qualify for the quarters, and then it can be anybodys game.” Rasquinha, who is the CEO of non-profit organistaion Olympic Gold Quest, was here on the occasion of the signing of a MoU between OGQ and Genpact, a global leader in digitally-powered business process management and services, with a mission to support Indian women athletes in winning medals at the Olympics. Rasquinha said, “Its extremely hard to predict the number of medals. We need to know how to enjoy the journey. We will keep improving. I am sure we will win more medals in Rio than London (Olympics in 2012).” When asked to comment on the qualification of the Indian womens hockey team for Rio Games, he said, “Its amazing that womens hockey will be there in Olympics after 36 years. Hockey India has been very encouraging towards womens hockey.” During the signing of the MoU, one of the founding members of OGQ, Geet Sethi, a nine-time cue sports champion, said, ” There has been massive improvement in the last 10-20 years. The government has opened its purse strings and they now want us to win medals in Olympics. Sporting performance will go up with the economic fevelopment of the country. “We can win more than six medals in Rio – shooting, badmintom, wrestling and boxing are the disciplines where we can win medals. There are many medals on offer in shooting. “We have to ensure that the athletes potential is fulfilled.” Sasha Sanyal, Senior Vice President ? Strategy and Diversity & Inclusion Leader – Genpact, said, “Gender diversity and supporting women to achieve their full potential are something that we drive with everything we have here at Genpact. “Were excited to extend this to supporting women in sports – where values such as meritocracy, focus, leadership and grit reflect our own values so well. Its a journey that we are all truly proud to be taking.” PTI AH KHS KHSadvertisement read more

India Today Web Desk North SoundAugust 22, 2019UPDATED: August 22, 2019 13:57 IST Antigua Weather Forecast, India vs West Indies 1st Test. (AP Photo)Virat Kohli-led India will look to extend their unbeaten run against West Indies when the first match of a two-Test series starts at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium on Thursday.Team India are on the verge of historic triumph after sweeping T20 series 3-0 and taken the ODI contest 2-0. If they manage to remain unbeaten in the longer format of the game in West Indies, they will become the first Indian side to win all three series.In Tests, the two sides have locked horns on 96 occasions donning the white kit. Out of those clashes, India won 20 of them while West Indies sealed victories on 30 occasions. 46 matches between the two teams ended in a draw.A win in the opening Test will be the 27th for Kohli as skipper and will put him on even keel with his predecessor Mahendra Singh Dhoni. A century in the game (19th as captain) will place him on par with Ricky Ponting.On paper, a batting line-up that has Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara, KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma and Rishabh Pant in the ranks should be termed clear favourites but this West Indies team, led by Jason Holder, is no pushover.However for that to happen rain gods must not interrupt both the Test matches. As in the limited-overs series, inclement weather had played a major role as there were stoppages during the T20I series. Also, the first ODI was washed out due to relentless rain and the second and third ODI also suffered delays with reduced targets in limited over.advertisementFans should breathe a sigh of relief as there is no chance of rain on Day 1 of the 1st Test with sunny weather expected during the course of play, according to Accuweather.

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said that the goal of making India a $5 trillion economy by 2024 is challenging but surely achievable, as he asked the states to focus on their core competencies and work towards increasing the GDP right from the district level. In his inaugural address at the fifth meeting of the Governing Council of Niti Aayog here, the prime minister also underlined the need for taking effective steps to tackle drought in various parts of the country.

Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh, who could not attend the meeting due to health reasons, deputed his finance minister Manpreet Badal. Banerjee had earlier said she would not attend the meeting, saying that Niti Aayog is a “fruitless” body as it has no financial powers. Rao did not come as he was busy with preparations for the launch of the ambitious Rs 80,000 crore Kaleshwaram lift irrigation project that would end water woes in Telangana.

He spoke of a collective fight against poverty, unemployment, drought, flood, pollution, corruption and violence. The Prime Minister said that everyone has a common goal of achieving a New India by 2022. He described the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan and PM Awaas Yojana as illustrations of what the Centre and the states can accomplish together. Modi also said that empowerment, and ease of living, have to be provided to each and every Indian. He said that the goals that have been set for the 150th anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi should be accomplished by October 2 and work should begin in the earnest towards the goals for 2022, the 75th anniversary of independence. Stressing that the focus should be on collective responsibility for achieving short term and long term goals, Modi said the goal to make India a $5 trillion economy by 2024, is “challenging, but can surely be achieved”. The size of India’s economy was estimated at USD 2.75 trillion at end-March 2019. States, he added should recognise their core competence, and work towards raising GDP targets right from the district level. He also stressed on increasing exports from the country. read more

The Federal Government put its revamped poker machine legislation to Parliament on Thursday – after securing the support of the Greens, but long-time campaigner for pokies reform Independent Senator Nick Xenophon didn’t mince his words on what he says is a missed opportunity. “Piss-weak” is how he described the government’s plans to curb problem gambling. Minister Jenny Macklin introduced the legislation which will set a $250 daily withdrawal limit on ATMs in most gambling venues from May next year. It also means future poker machines will have to be capable of allowing gamblers set a limit on the amount they are prepared to lose.“We know that no-one sits down to lose their whole pay cheque, week’s grocery budget or the money for the school items for their children – and that’s what pre-commitment helps to protect against,” said the Minister. “It gives people a tool to help them take control of their own spending.” The Gillard government announced in January that it was abandoning a deadline to introduce mandatory pre-commitment technology for pokies – limiting what a gambler could lose in a session. The turnaround broke a deal made with independent MP Andrew Wilkie – made in order to form a government, which involved changing poker machine laws and a roll-out of pre-commitment technology by 2014. The government backed-off in trying to force the legislation through Parliament after it appeared to not have the numbers to pass. Instead the government promised to introduce laws requiring pre-commitment technology be installed on every new poker machine manufactured from the start of 2013, with a trial taking place in the ACT – if all the clubs who operate poker machines are prepared to take part. Senator Xenophon told reporters that he was “sceptical and very cynical” about what the government has done in introducing the watered-down legislation. “The problem is a voluntary system won’t work because if somebody pre-sets one machine and they’ve just done their 100 or 200 or $1,000 on the machine, they can then go to another machine because the system is entirely voluntary,” he said. “The reform that we needed – [is] one dollar bets, or at least having machines that were one-dollar-bet ready, as recommended by the productivity commission, and this isn’t in this package of reforms.” An independent think-tank which the government has agreed to fund will investigate additional reform options such as the one dollar bet limit. Asked if he would be supporting the legislation in its passage through parliament, Xenophon said he would need to see its details. “Most of all I need to speak to the people that matter on this – that is the many problem gamblers and their families that I’ve dealt with over the years, in the 14 years I’ve been involved in this campaign.” The legislation is unlikely to clear Parliament before the end of the year. Nick Xenophon also introduced a bill into parliament last week – to tighten the regulation of poker machine payouts after allegations that pokies were being used for large-scale money-laundering. The move follows a report in The Australian newspaper that alleged a Melbourne hotel had failed to act on suspicions of money-laundering, after a pensioner and his family collected more than $630,000 in winnings between March and August. “This story could well be the tip of the iceberg,” Senator Xenophon said.

France : des consommateurs plus responsables L’enquête réalisée par le cabinet conseil Ethicity et publiée aujourd’hui montre que 51% des Français ont adopté une consommation “plus responsable”. Alors que va s’ouvrir demain la Semaine du développement durable, le cabinet conseil Ethicity livre les résultats de son enquête annuelle concernant la consommation des Français. Si en 2010, 46% des consommateurs indiquaient faire preuve d’une attitude plus responsable au moment d’acheter, ils sont 51% aujourd’hui à être plus attentifs, rapporte Sciences et Avenir. Concrètement 54% des consommateurs achètent moins et 33% consomment “mieux”. Ils évitent d’acheter des produits considérés comme superflus. Par ailleurs, 32% des acheteurs évitent les produits suremballés et 30% boycottent les entreprises qui n’adoptent pas de comportement responsable. De plus, les consommateurs français indiquent acheter davantage français ou local (pour 29% d’entre eux cela vise à favoriser l’emploi au niveau local). Pourtant, ce n’est pas pour préserver la planète que les gens consomment différemment. C’est dans un souci de bien-être personnel que 61% des Français font davantage attention, révèle le sondage. La présidente du cabinet Ethicity, Elizabeth Pastore-Reiss, a indiqué à la presse que “la préoccupation pour la santé est un moyen qui rallie tout le monde surtout si on y ajoute du bien-être, du partage, du plaisir et du goût”.

Cancer du col de l’utérus : dépister la maladie avec du simple vinaigreDes chercheurs indiens ont mis au point une nouvelle technique pour dépister facilement et à moindre coût le cancer du col de l’utérus. La méthode utilise du vinaigre et un coton tige. Avec plus de 400.000 nouveaux cas chaque année, le cancer du col de l’utérus représente la 2e localisation de cancer chez les femmes dans le monde. Des chiffres que l’on doit notamment aux pays en voie de développement où ce type de cancer est très fréquent. Chaque année, ce sont ainsi quelque 200.000 femmes qui décèdent suite à la maladie, notamment à cause d’un dépistage trop tardif. Mais des chercheurs indiens ont aujourd’hui développé une technique qui pourrait aider à sauver des milliers de femmes.Présentée à la réunion annuelle de l’American Society of Clinical Oncology, la méthode serait simple, nécessiterait très peu de matériel mais serait efficace pour dépister le cancer du col de l’utérus qui représente la première cause de mortalité par cancer en Inde. Pour en arriver là, le professeur Surendra Srinivas Shastri et ses collègues du Tata Memorial Hospital de Bombay ont mené plus de 15 ans de recherche sur 150.000 femmes indiennes de 35 à 64 ans, sans antécédents de cancer du col utérin. Un taux de mortalité réduit de 31% Au cours de ces travaux, ils ont divisé les femmes en deux groupes : certaines se voyaient dépister en utilisant la nouvelle méthode tandis que d’autres n’étaient pas testées. La technique consiste en fait à déposer à l’aide d’un simple coton tige du vinaigre sur le col de l’utérus de la patiente. Puis à attendre 60 secondes, avant d’observer à l’oeil nu à l’aide d’une lampe halogène, l’endroit où le vinaigre a été déposé. En contact avec le liquide, les tissus précancéreux deviennent blancs tandis que les tissus sains ne changent pas de couleur.Ainsi, un seul coup d’oeil peut permettre de dépister un cancer en développement. “Cette méthode de détection visuelle du cancer utérin est à la portée de tous, après une formation assez simple de 4 semaines”, ont expliqué les auteurs. Selon les résultats de l’étude dévoilés, les deux groupes ont montré une incidence du cancer du col utérin comparable : 26,5 pour 100.000 chez celles soumises au dépistage et 26,7 pour 100.000 chez les autres. Néanmoins, l’impact du test de dépistage s’est avéré lui prometteur.Les femmes dépistées ont montré une réduction de 31% du taux de mortalité comparé à celles qui ne l’ont pas été. “C’est très significatif”, a commenté le Dr Surendra Shastri cité par le KhaleejTimes. Ceci serait notamment due à la précocité du dépistage qui a permis de traiter le cancer dès le premier stade. Ajouté à cela, l’étude a également montré une réduction de 7% de la mortalité, quelle qu’en soit la cause, mais ce résultat n’a pas été jugé statistiquement significatif. Sauver plus de 70.000 femmes Reste que la diminution de la mortalité par cancer offre un véritable espoir pour les pays où les méthodes de dépistage classiques sont trop onéreuses. D’après les chercheurs, ce test à base de vinaigre pourrait éviter la mort de quelque 22.000 femmes atteintes de cancer en Inde, et de 72.000 dans les pays en développement. “Nous espérons que nos résultats auront un profond effet sur la réduction du fardeau qu’est le cancer du col utérin en Inde et à travers le monde”, a ajouté le Dr Shastri. “Nous travaillons déjà avec les autorités de la santé des Etats et au niveau national en Inde pour rendre cette technique de dépistage et l’éducation médicale accessible à toutes les femmes dans le pays”, a t-il encore précisé. En effet, au cours de l’étude, les femmes qui n’étaient pas régulièrement dépistées se sont vu proposer un programme d’éducation pour apprendre à reconnaitre les symptômes du cancer du col de l’utérus. Dépister et rassurer les femmes À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?”Des programmes de surveillance peu coûteux, comme celui décrit en Inde, sont extrêmement nécessaires”, a commenté le Dr Kathleen Schmeler du Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center de Houston. “Cette procédure rapide et peu chère pourrait identifier les femmes qui ont besoin de voir un spécialiste pour le traitement d’un pré-cancer ou d’un cancer cervical, et rassurer les femmes qui ont des résultats normaux”, a indiqué le Dr Monique Spillman du University of Colorado Cancer Center.Selon elle, des efforts similaires sont actuellement menés dans certaines régions d’Afrique. Néanmoins, le Dr Schemeler qui mène une étude comparable au Brésil a mis en garde contre la possibilité que des faux positifs conduisent à un surtraitement de la population. Les chercheurs poursuivent donc les travaux, notamment pour déterminer ce qui pourrait conduire à un résultat positif en l’absence de tissus précancéreux.

Happy birthday to two of the most considerable companions in the Whoniverse: Alex Kingston and John Barrowman.Professor River Song and Captain Jack Harkness go to-to-toe with the Doctor (in his various manifestations), bringing heart, sass, and a bit of romance to the TARDIS.A dashing Time Agent and con man from the 51st century, Captain Jack (one of his many aliases) meets the Ninth Doctor and Rose Tyler above a blazing London.(I remember, upon seeing him in the season one episode “Bad Wolf,” declaring that if I’d known the blue-eyed Scottish-American actor were joining the team, I would have started watching Doctor Who years earlier.)As a consequence of his death and resurrection in the show’s 2005 finale, the flirtatious action hero becomes immortal, is abandoned in the future, and gets stranded in the past—when he joins Torchwood, a British organization dedicated to combating alien threats (and the name of the spin-off Barrowman led for five years).The first openly non-heterosexual character in the history of televised Doctor Who, Jack eventually reunites with the Tenth Doctor, hinting that he may one day evolve into the 5-billion-year-old Face of Boe.Since becoming mortal again in the fourth season of Torchwood, the possibility Jack is destined to grow into the massive wrinkled, disembodied head is merely a “conjecture,” according to former writer and showrunner Russell T Davies. (But Barrowman still believes, and so can you.)Barrowman rose to international fame with his portrayal of Captain Jack. But Kingston was already a bonafide star when she joined Team TARDIS.Best known for her role as Dr. Elizabeth Corday on NBC medical drama ER, the curly haired Brit debuted as River Song in the two-part story “Silence in the Library”/”Forest of the Dead.”A mysterious time-traveling archaeologist, River’s adventures with the Doctor occur out of sync; their first meeting (from the audience’s perspective) is his first and her last.Born Melody Pond, she is the daughter of Amy Pond and Rory Williams, and “sort of the Doctor’s wife.” But regenerating River, who has taken on various faces, almost didn’t assume the form of Kingston. In fact, when the BBC cast the role, the production team sought Kate Winslet, who appeared very early in her career in Davies’ teen drama Dark Season.Luckily for Kingston, what she expected to be a one-off gig turned into a 15-episode arc between 2010 and 2015, when she last appeared in Christmas special “The Husbands of River Song” alongside Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi.While their Who characters never crossed paths, the actors both appear in The CW’s Arrow action crime series, based on DC Comics’ Green Arrow.Series regular Barrowman stars as antagonist Malcolm Merlyn, while Kingston occasionally steps into the role of Professor Dinah Lance, mother of Laurel and Sara Lance.(Don’t expect a cameo by The Doctor, though: Tenth incarnation David Tennant slayed (literally) as Kilgrave in Netflix’s original Marvel Cinematic Universe tie-in Jessica Jones.)Raise a glass to 54-year-old River Song Alex Kingston (what anti-aging cream does she use?) and 50-year-old Jack Harkness John Barrowman (what anti-aging cream does he use?)—without whom Doctor Who would be much less sexy.View as: One Page Slides1.

Additional Sessions Judge Kamini Lau said the government should step in and draft a national policy to protect and take care of the rescued cattle which are being rampantly released on ‘superdari’ (undertaking) to those who are being booked for the violation of special laws relating to protection of animals.‘This they do by taking advantage of lacuna in existing law which is totally silent on how these rescued animals are required to be dealt with. Under no circumstances can these animals/cattle be handed over to the same persons from whose clutches they have been rescued.‘This lacuna in law, rather mischief in law needs an urgent attention of the law framers so that it is plugged at the earliest. Cattle wealth of the country has to be protected at any cost not only because it is connected to important issues of national health but also because its an issue which is closely knitted to religious beliefs and sentiments of a class of society which have to be respected,’ the court said.The court said that in order to fulfil the constitutional obligations, ‘it is desirable for the government of India to step in and seriously draft out a National Policy where the animals/cattle so rescued, particularly the milch cattle which are the national wealth of our country, are protected, preserved and taken care of’.The court’s 538-page judgement came in a case relating to an encounter between a gang of cattle lifters from Mewat, on the outskirts of the national capital, and the Delhi police in the Outer Delhi district on the intervening night of January 18-19, 2013, when the accused were trying to flee by taking away the animals for the purpose of slaughtering.It awarded the jail term to Uttar Pradesh residents Anwar, Ankur Kumar, Sanwar, Khalid, Tasleem, Hasrat and Asif for the offences of attempt to murder, criminal conspiracy, obstructing public servant in discharging duty, assaulting and voluntarily causing hurt to deter public servant from duty under the IPC. read more

This is how they responded on twitter:Here are six ways you can dispose of your trash during the strike:Organise a group collection for your trashMany people around Johannesburg have come together to collect their trash in groups. Some community entrepreneurs have taken it upon themselves to collect people’s trash at a low cost. Neighbours can come together, create a small fund to pay someone with a truck who can collect the rubbish and dump it at any of the 12 waste management depots strategically located throughout the city. Most schools and communities have depots where you can dispose of the trash.Take trash to a landfillThere are four landfills around Johannesburg. The landfill is a popularly used method of waste disposal. If you take your trash to any of the landfills in Johannesburg, the waste is buried in the land and the process used also eliminates the odours and dangers of waste before it is placed into the ground. This is not the most responsible waste management system because of the numerous landfill gases and methane presence.Dump trash at incineration/combustion centresThere is one incineration or combustion disposal method in Johannesburg. This method burns waste to convert it into residue and gaseous products reducing the volume. Thermal treatment where solid waste materials are converted by incinerators into heat, gas, steam and ash. Here are a few places that manage waste in Gauteng. read more
