Virat Kohli batted himslef at No.3 in the India’s ODI batting line-up, but former skipper Sourav Ganguly feels KL Rahul should bat at that position and the current Indian captain should come down at four in the line-up.Ganguly advised Kohli to bat at crucial number four position to provide solidity to the India’s batting line-up in the three-match ODI series against England, which starts on Thursday.Since the tour of Sri Lanka in July-August 2017, India have tried as many as six different batsmen – Rahul, Kedar Jadhav, Manish Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik and Ajinkya Rahane – at the number four position but Ganguly feels Kohli is the best bet for the crucial slot.”If you look at this T20I series, I think they have formed the proper batting line-up. With Rahul at number three, and Virat Kohli batting at number four, I think the problem has been sorted out. And I firmly believe it is also the right thing to do in the ODI format as well,” Ganguly said after the UK launch of his book ‘A Century is Not Enough’.”I think that’s what Kohli is going to do (in the upcoming series) as well,” the former skipper opined.Ganguly was of the opinion that England lack firepower in their bowling line-up, which will give the visitors an edge in the ODIs.India started off the English summer with a bang, winning the three-match T20I series 2-1.”England are a good side. They are a very good batting unit but bowling is the weaker part of their game. The way India won (easily) in Bristol when chasing 200 (in a T20 game), they will fancy their chances against this English bowling line-up in the ODI series,” he said.advertisementHe, however, cautioned Kohli and Co. against taking England lightly in the long series.”Off late, the Indian team has been doing well in T20Is. I have enjoyed their performance in this England series as well. But they have to be mindful that it is only the start of a long summer with ODIs and five Tests to follow,” Ganguly said.”They have set the tone for the latter contests with this win, but different formats will present different challenges for them. India should also know that they are a good unit and they can do well here.”Asked about India’s strengths ahead of what should be another keenly contested series between both the sides, Ganguly said, “At the moment, India are a very good and well-rounded limited-overs’ side.”A lot of good Indian sides have been tested in England and some of the better ones have done well here and won before. I think this Indian team can be like that, they can definitely win here this summer, definitely the ODIs and possibly the Tests too.”Ganguly rated India as one of the most talented batting units in the game at present.”It is one of the most talented batting units in limited-overs’ in world cricket at the moment. The top-order is brilliant with Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma, and if they continue to score more runs at the top, they can challenge my partnership records with Sachin Tendulkar soon.”Rohit, in particular, is a terrific player in the limited overs’ arena and will probably end up as one of the greats in white-ball cricket,” he said.Gangulys comments should come as a boost to India, who are starting their preparations for the 2019 ODI World Cup in England which is less than a year away.While the teams readiness seems on schedule in most areas concerning batting and bowling, there is a gaping hole in the middle order despite the experience of MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina and the new-found exuberance of Hardik Pandya.The former captain was also mighty impressed with wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadavs showing on this UK trip so far.Conditions in England can vary vastly from wicket to wicket and so every game is a different challenge. You need wicket-taking spinners on these English wickets even as they change from game to game. Kuldeep is already in the Test squad when playing at home, but he should be in the first-eleven for all formats for the Indian team, Ganguly signed off.(With inputs from PTI)
The India ‘A’ women’s hockey team came back from a goal down to beat France ‘A’ 3-2 in the second match of the series on Sunday.In the first-ever international match played at the Veer Bahadur Singh Sports College ground here, Mariana Kujur (19th minute), Lalremsiami (30th) and Mumtaz Khan (34th) scored to eke out the win for the hosts after Mickaela Lahlah had given France ‘A’ lead in the 14th minute.The visitors showed some resilience in the last quarter and found a second goal through Guusje Van Bolhuis (58th), but the home team held on to register the series-levelling win.After the defeat in the first match, India ‘A’ team made a solid comeback to beat the visitors, but it was not the start that the hosts would have expected as the French team took the lead in the 14th minute through Lahlah, who finished off a brilliant team move to give her side the lead.Constant pressure on the Indian defense towards the end of the first quarter resulted in the first goal but the Indians were quick to equalise in the second quarter as they utilised a penalty corner in the 19th minute through Kujur’s well-executed drag-flick.Young striker Lalremsiami then registered her name on the score-sheet as she scored a field goal at the end of the second quarter to give her team the lead.India’s continuous pressure on the French defense resulted in their third goal just four minutes into the third quarter.Playing in her home state, it was Mumtaz, who produced a calm finish to extend India’s lead to 3-1.advertisementTrailing by two goals, the visitors constantly tried to make inroads into the Indian striking circle, but could only find only one goal late in the last quarter through Guusje Van Bolhuis, who scored off a penalty corner.India ‘A’ will play their third match against France ‘A’ on Tuesday at the Padma Shri Mohammad Shahid Synthetic Hockey Stadium in Lucknow.Also Read | India bids to host men’s or women’s hockey World Cup in 2023
TORONTO – A speck of green appeared on a map otherwise dominated by orange and blue Thursday night as Mike Schreiner made history by winning his Green party’s first-ever seat in the Ontario legislature.The American-born politician handily won in his Guelph riding with 45 per cent of the vote, ushering in what he hopes is a new era for his party.“If we look at the success of Green parties in other provinces, it always starts with one leader being elected,” he said, pointing to British Columbia and Prince Edward Island as examples.“When people see elected Greens in action, they see that we do politics differently …they want to elect more Greens.”In the 2014 election, Schreiner, who’s led the provincial Greens since 2009, finished third, just 1.5 percentage points behind the Progressive Conservative candidate, who was not running this time, and ahead of the NDP.The incumbent, prominent Liberal Liz Sandals, also did not run.While Schreiner has won this initial fight, he noted that he may face an uphill battle for the next four years as he contends with a Progressive Conservative majority government that has vowed to eliminate Ontario’s cap-and-trade system.In his victory speech in Guelph, Schreiner had a message for Doug Ford: “You believed that climate change was real, and people were causing it,” he told supporters. “And so you better listen to the Green MPP from Guelph about how we solve the climate crisis.”Asked what he’d say if Ford does indeed come calling, Schreiner laughed.“Well first of all, I’m going to talk about just how important it is to embrace the clean economy,” he said. “I think Guelph is leading in that and I want my community to continue in job creation in a clean economy — that’s where growth is globally.”He noted that Guelph will be his priority once he gets to Toronto — his former home.Schreiner was born and raised in a farm in Kansas, but he moved north in 1994 to Canada when his wife became a professor at the University of Toronto. He moved to Guelph a few years ago after working in the southwestern Ontario city for years.“This is literally people-powered change,” he said following his win. “We’ve had over 500 volunteers working on this campaign. They’re just passionate, they’re committed and they want to create a more liveable future for our children and grandchildren.”
TORONTO — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is expected to meet with Toronto’s mayor today to discuss possible strategies to combat gun violence.The prime minister’s meeting with John Tory is set to take place a day after the federal, provincial and municipal governments announced they would jointly offer $4.5 million to Toronto police to tackle gun crime.The force has been grappling with a rising numbers of shootings over the past two years, with 14 separate shootings recorded over the recent long weekend alone.Police have said the vast majority of those incidents were gang-related.Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders said Monday that the funding was welcome but did not immediately say how it would be spent.Saunders said he will lay out his plan to deal with gun violence in the coming days.Ontario Premier Doug Ford said in a statement that the province’s $1.5-million contribution comes from reallocating money that had previously been earmarked for part of a four-year anti-gang funding effort.The Canadian Press
We all know aggressive driving is risky, but the most dangerous kind is apparently a problem we’ve dealt with for a long time — speeding.Researchers from the University of Waterloo looked at over 28 million trips for possible links between four bad driving behaviours — speeding, hard braking, hard acceleration and hard cornering — and how those behaviours factored into collisions.Their analysis of the data revealed speeding is a strong predictor of crashes, while statistically significant links for the other kinds of aggressive driving couldn’t be established.“When you speed, you are at a higher probability of getting into an accident,” Allaa Hilal, adjunct professor, electrical and computer engineering at the University of Waterloo, explained. “Regardless of the age … the type of car, the probability is much, much higher.”The data was gathered by looking at on-board diagnostic devices installed on the vehicles of some insurance company clients in Ontario and Texas.“And one of the key findings was, if you’re speeding is at the 75th percentile and somebody else’s speeding is at the 50th percentile … the one who is at the 75th percentile has a 50 per cent more chance of getting into a car accident. So the statistic is significant and the numbers are clear,” Hilal told The Mike Farwell Show on 570 NEWS.“Some of the results are no surprise, but prior to this we had a whole industry based on intuition,” Hilal added. “Now it is formulated — we know aggressive driving has an impact.”Stefan Steiner, a statistics professor at the university, believes analysis of those on-board devices could eventually revolutionize the insurance industry by enabling fairer, personalized premiums based on actual driving behaviour, not age, gender or location.As well, Hilal stated the data could make roads safer by giving drivers both tangible evidence and financial incentives to change. “Having this information exposed and understood allows people to wrap their minds around their true risks and improve their driving behaviours,”she said.

WASHINGTON — For any snowbirds who may soon find themselves bumping into the limit for time spent in the U.S., bad news: there’s no more escaping this year’s Canadian winter.That’s because an attempt to increase the maximum stay hasn’t concluded in time to provide respite from this interminably icy season. It’s been frost-bitten by a process that can be as painful as a Canadian cold snap: the U.S. legislative system. A now-frozen immigration bill contained provisions that would have benefited those Canadians, estimated at up to 500,000, who reach the six-month maximum allowed in the U.S. over a 12-month period.But proponents have a Plan B.They hope a separate piece of legislation, currently before the House of Representatives, might advance soon despite the Republican-controlled chamber’s refusal to deal with the omnibus immigration bill passed by the Senate. They’ve received more than a dozen new co-sponsors for the bill in recent weeks, bringing to 141 the number of members from both parties who have added their names to the bill presented by Nevada Republican Joe Heck, titled the Jobs Originated through Launching Travel (JOLT) Act.They’re urging lawmakers to focus on the first word in the bill’s title — “jobs.” Proponents would rather shift this discussion away from the politically charged terrain of immigration, and towards economic grounds such as the job benefits for the U.S. tourism industry and retailers.“The problem with JOLT, frankly, is I don’t think it’s an immigration piece,” said Michael Mackenzie, head of the Canadian Snowbird Association, which has been actively lobbying for the bill alongside U.S. business interests and lawmakers from states that receive Canadian tourists and shoppers.“The fact that it’s tied to immigration reform is a bit of a problem for us right now… It’s a jobs bill.”The bill would allow people over age 50, with an American address, to spend an extra two months in the U.S. — up to eight months a year. It would be primarily used by the most ardent snowbirds who want to stay south a little longer, or who want to add additional cross-border trips in the summer.To understand the difficulty of getting immigration measures passed in the U.S., one need only ask Marco Rubio. After the Republicans lost the 2012 presidential election thanks to minuscule support from Latinos, there was talk that the party might need to accept amnesty measures for illegal immigrants in order to rebuild its fortunes with that fast-growing demographic.Rubio was immediately considered a possible front-runner for the presidential Republican nomination in 2016. Then he started talking about immigration reform and amnesty. And there went his front-runner status within the Republican party. The party leadership has wavered in the fight, blowing hot and cold. House Speaker John Boehner offered a strong hint recently as to why. With his leadership already under attack from Tea Party types after he caved on a budget battle, Boehner appears to believe he’d get beaten up for moving on immigration.“For the last 15 months I’ve been trying to move the ball down the field, only to be tackled by people that just don’t want to deal with it,” Boehner was quoted saying this month during a trip to Washington State by the Kitsap Sun newspaper.But he professes to want reforms this year, likely in series of piecemeal bills. That’s where JOLT proponents might have an opening — perhaps in time for next winter. Even if the bill passes, however, it would face two other practical hurdles. Tax rules in the U.S. would need to change, and Canadian provinces would have to relax restrictions on health-care coverage for those gone more than six months.Bob Slack, a snowbird who’s been active in the fight, said he’s confident on both fronts: provinces have been getting on board, and he expects the U.S. taxman would do the same, because of the benefits to both countries.Canadian taxpayers would save health costs for snowbirds during the winter, while still collecting their income taxes, while the U.S. collects additional tourism dollars, said Slack, a retired school principal.

“Coral reefs are a major tourist attraction in many coastal areas, and protecting them is essential not only for the environment but also for the tourism industry,” said Jacqueline Aloisi de Larderel, Assistant UNEP Executive Director. “We believe that by raising awareness and so changing the behaviour of tourists and local tourism industry workers alike, the damage to coral reefs can be reduced.”The first product in the information campaign, a wall calendar, is being distributed today to the 1,500 representatives of hotels attending MarketPlace – the largest travel and trade exhibition in the wider Caribbean region – taking place in Cancun, Mexico.Each month the calendar, produced in association with the Caribbean Alliance for Sustainable TourismThe outreach effort, which also aims to promote 2002 as the International Year of Ecotourism, will include a “passport” explaining the main biological and ecological features of coral reefs, a children’s quiz, a poster and a boaters’ chart with information on how to manage solid waste and holding tanks as well as refuelling and anchoring practices.
“This is a highly complex issue, with global organizations already overwhelmed by the demands of conventionally recognized refugees,” said UNU Rector Hans van Ginkel. “We should prepare now, however, to define, accept and accommodate this new breed of ‘refugee’ within international frameworks.Unlike victims of political upheaval or violence who have access through governments and international organizations to such assistance as funding, food, tools, shelter, schools and clinics, “environmental refugees” are not yet recognized in world conventions, the UNU’s Institute for Environment and Human Security in Bonn, Germany, said in a statement.”There are well-founded fears that the number of people fleeing untenable environmental conditions may grow exponentially as the world experiences the effects of climate change and other phenomena,” Institute Director Janos Bogardi said. “This new category of ‘refugee’ needs to find a place in international agreements. We need to better anticipate support requirements, similar to those of people fleeing other unviable situations.”He noted that the term “environmental refugee” rankled many experts for masking what were often complex motives behind migration and implicitly laying the blame on nature when often the policies and practices of people were the real cause of displacement.The Institute has been working to establish an internationally agreed glossary of terms to promote cooperation in the broad area of environment and human security.
Addressing a press briefing held earlier this morning in Geneva, Jens Laerke, spokesperson for the UN’s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), told reporters that during the 15-month span between April 2014 and June 2015, the Ukraine crisis triggered the internal displacement of more than 1.3 million people, mostly across the country’s eastern provinces of Dinetsk, Luhansk, and Kharkivska. This, he added, placed the Eastern European country among the top 10 countries in the world for internal displacement. In addition to the growing numbers of displaced, on-the-ground casualties are also increasing, warned Mr. Laerke. According to OCHA’s conservative estimates, at least 6,454 people, both military and civilians, have been killed, and another 16,146 have been wounded since the outbreak of hostilities.In late February 2014, the situation in Ukraine transcended what was initially seen as an internal Ukrainian political crisis into violent clashes in parts of the country, later reaching full-scale conflict in the east. Nevertheless, despite a September 2014 cease-fire agreed in Minsk, the fighting has since continuously deteriorated, with serious consequences for the country’s unity, territorial integrity and stability. In February 2015, the parties in Ukraine and the Trilateral Contact Group signed a “Package of Measures for the Implementation of the Minsk Agreements.”One particular recent bout of fighting in the town of Marinka had led to a critical deterioration in humanitarian needs and a lack of access to water, the OCHA spokesperson continued. He said an estimated 10,000 people remaining in the Marinka area had no access to water for the past days and were being reached by insufficient supplies. Meanwhile, in the non-Government controlled areas of Luhansk province, thousands of people were reportedly without any access to water at all. Overall, Mr. Laerke concluded, an estimated 5 million people across Ukraine remained in need of humanitarian aid. Although the UN-backed humanitarian response plan is targeting 3.2 million of those in need, he cautioned that the plan is currently experiencing a shortfall in funding with only 24 per cent of it covered.

THE ROAD SAFETY AUTHORITY has urged road users to take extra care today as Met Éireann warns of further widespread gales and high Atlantic waves causing some flooding in coastal areas.Another orange alert was issued this morning with warnings of gale force winds with gusts of between 90 km per hour and 120 km per hour.The RSA advised members of the public to check weather reports and heed any advice from local councils and gardaí regarding road conditions.As the poor weather can create hazardous conditions, the RSA has the following tips for drivers:It takes longer to stop a vehicle on wet roads so slow down and allow extra distance between you and the vehicle in front;Take special care when driving behind trucks or buses as they generate a considerable amount of spray which reduces your visibility;Watch out for falling/fallen debris on the road and vehicles veering across the road and the reaction of other road users;Control of a vehicle may be affected by strong cross winds. High sided vehicles and motorcyclists are particularly vulnerable to strong winds.Watch out for vulnerable road users such as pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists.Use dipped headlights at all times of poor visibility not parking/side lights and fog lights.Be mindful of Aquaplaning on roads where 100/120kmh speeds apply. Aquaplaning occurs where the tyre thread fill with water and the driver is at risk of losing control of the vehicle;If the road ahead is flooded choose another route, do not attempt to drive through it. Flooded roads that appear shallow could be deeper than you think. If you do drive through it, so so slowly.And a couple for pedestrians:Pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists are advised to be seen. Wear bright clothing with reflective armbands or a reflective belt;Pedestrians should walk on a footpath, not in the street. Walk on the right hand side of the road, facing traffic if there are no footpaths.Stay safe, folks.Read: Met Éireann extends weather warning as wind picks up across country>
Suso is happy at Milan after the “mess of the Chinese takeover” has been resolved and the new executives are sound in football matters.AC Milan was under Silvio Berlusconi’s control for over three decades, but sold to Yonghong Li in April 2017 with the aid of massive loans from US hedge fund Elliott Management.However, Yonghong Li failed attempts to keep up repayments, led to Elliott reclaiming the club.“Everything has calmed down after the mess of the Chinese takeover,” Suso disclosed this to Football Italia in a recent interview.“Now everything has changed with the Americans, they have brought back legends like Leonardo and Paolo Maldini, people who know about football and know about Milan.”The latter has been a big help with the players since his return to the club where he spent his entire career.Serie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….“He is very observant. Maldini speaks little but imposes himself and he is very close to the team.”The former Liverpool winger has been impressive with two goals and six assists in seven games so far this term.“I enjoy playing football, otherwise I’d do something else. Italian football is very tactical and demanding for offensive players, because every week you face well-organised defences.“I’m very calm. I’m waiting for my child to be born in the next four weeks in a city that I like and that has everything.”The 24-year-old is set to be one of the main protagonists in next weekend’s derby showdown against Inter.“I will dedicate my next goal to Alessio. That is the name we have already decided on.”

Twin towerBangladeshis are the third largest group in making Malaysia their second homes, taking advantage of Kuala Lumpur’s official scheme to attract rich foreigners, according to media reports.Reports of setting up of second home abroad and siphoning off money to overseas banks by Bangladeshis created a lot of controversies, especially on the political front, in recent times.Official data show, as many as 3,546 Bangladeshis have secured approval of their houses by the Malaysian government since the inception of the programme in 2002, said The New Straits Time in a report published on Thursday.Only the Chinese and Japanese nationals are reportedly ahead of Bangladeshis – there are a total of 8,714 approved participants from China and 4,225 from Japan.Since its inception in 2002, the Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) programme has approved the applications of 33,300 people from 126 countries, the newspaper pointed out.It quoted tourism and culture minister Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz as saying that Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) programme has clearly been well received.”China remains the top participating country, with almost 8,714 approved participants, followed by Japan with 4,225; Bangladesh (3,546); the United Kingdom (2,412); lran (1,336); Singapore (1,295); Taiwan (1,208); South Korea (1,266); Pakistan (973); and lndia (890),” he was said to have told an MM2H national workshop.The Time quoting Nazri said tangible benefits and revenue contributed to the local economy by MM2H participants amount to RM12.8 billion to date.”Visa fee collection (including multiple entry, social pass and journey performance visa where applicable) amounts to RM52 million. The yearly collection target is RM7.5 million.”Fixed deposits amount to RM4.9 billion; the purchase of automobiles amount to RM148 million; while the purchase of property amounts to RM4.9 billion, said the newspaper report.
Italy police. Photo: CollectedItalian police have arrested top mafia fugitive Marco Di Lauro, the fourth son of Camorra boss Paolo Di Lauro and the only one still at large, officials said on Saturday.Di Lauro, 38, was arrested without a fight at an apartment in the Chiaiano district in southern city Naples where he was with his wife, Italian news agencies reported.An international arrest warrant was issued for him in 2006, and he was second on Italy’s most-wanted list after notorious Sicilian Mafia boss Matteo Messina Denaro.Photos in Italian media showed Di Lauro wearing a long-sleeved T-shirt being brought to the police station in Naples by car, with a police helicopter overhead.Around 100 people including police gathered outside shouting “well done, well done”, local media reported.Italian interior minister Matteo Salvini hailed a “very important operation, no respite for criminals.”Di Lauro had been on the run since he escaped a massive police swoop in 2004 known as the “night of the handcuffs”.An informant said in 2010 that Di Lauro was responsible for at least four murders.Marco’s father Paolo Di Lauro was head of the Camorra clan that operates in Naples’ impoverished Scampia and Secondigliano neighbourhoods.At least 130 people were killed in a bloody turf war there after the Amato-Pagano clan split from the Di Lauro clan in 2004.
