A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player He explained to Sky Sports what Sanchez will add to the United fold: “Sometimes they have to drag him off the training field. He’s always out there, he don’t want to miss a game.“I think his energy will come through with the other players as well and his goals, he will score you plenty of goals.“You can’t always rely on [Romelu] Lukaku, if he has a bad spell you’ve got players behind him now to score goals.“He’s going to be a lot more prolific probably than the players in around him. Champions League football as well, he can play straight away.“He could be brilliant this season. That’s probably why he wanted to get the deal through quickly because he’s another asset for them in the Champions League.“That could be the difference in getting them to the semi-final or final.”United are set to face La Liga outfit Sevilla in the last 16 of this season’s Champions League campaign.They have important domestic outings to come before then, though, with Mourinho’s men set to take in meetings with Tottenham, Huddersfield and Newcastle before attention turns to continental competition.Priceless points will be up for grabs in those fixtures, with the Red Devils currently sat second in the Premier League table, 12 points behind leaders Manchester City and only three ahead of third-placed Chelsea.last_img read more

World Cup 2019 India vs Australia, Innings Report: Australia face record chase at The Oval

first_img Next view more view less India Today Web Desk LondonJune 9, 2019UPDATED: June 9, 2019 18:59 IST Shikhar Dhawan celebrates his 100 against Australia at The Oval (Reuters)HIGHLIGHTSIndia finished with 352/5 against Australia at The OvalShikhar Dhawan scored 117 while Virat Kohli hit a magnificent 82 runsAustralia haven’t lost in a chase in World Cups since 1999India have set a target of 353 for Australia to chase in their 2nd match of the World Cup 2019 being played at The Oval. Riding on a stupendous 117 from opener Shikhar Dhawan and useful fifties from Rohit Sharma (57) and Virat Kohli (82), India were able to put the Australian bowlers under pressure throughout the innings and can now hope to collect 2 crucial World Cup points. The total was also boosted by a swashbuckling late assault from Hardik Pandya, who scored 48 off just 27 balls.After Dhawan and Rohit put up a dominant 127-run stand, Kohli joined Dhawan at the fall of Rohit’s wicket to further consolidate India’s position. When Dhawan departed trying to hoick Starc out of the park, India sent in Pandya aiming to finish on a high and the big-hitter delivered promptly, falling just short of completing the fastest half-century of the ongoing World Cup. Even Pandya’s dismissal couldn’t stem the flow of runs as new man MS Dhoni smashed his way through an entertaining 27(14) before falling to an excellent caught and bowled by Marcus Stoinis who picked up Kohli later in the over as the Indian batsmen looked for quick runs.For Australia, it was a forgettable day in the field as Mitchell Starc, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Stoinis and Pat Cummins couldn’t add to their solitary wickets while being carted for runs all over the park.India’s 352/5 also happens to be the highest total by any team against Australia at World Cups surpassing Sri Lanka’s 312 in Sydney four years ago. But despite their blockbuster performance with the bat, India still need to be wary of Australia’s chasing history at the tournament.advertisementAustralia haven’t lost World Cup match while chasing in the last 2 decades! Their last defeat in a WC chase came against Pakistan during a league match of the 1999 edition of the tournament when they lost by 10 runs in Leeds. Back then, the legendary Wasim Akram and Saqlain Mushtaq had picked 4 and 3 wickets respectively to stifle the Australian chase.Since then, Australia have won all of their 19 World Cup matches while chasing. This puts India in a tough spot as they look to defend 352 at The Oval. The pitch at The Oval hasn’t offered much seam or swing movement and should help the Australian batters as it did their opponents. Though with the likes of Jasprit Bumrah and Yuzvendra Chahal in their ranks, India would be fancying their chances to rewrite history and better their own head-to-head record against Australia at World Cups.India have managed to win just 3 out of their previous 11 encounters against Australia including the heartbreaking 2003 World Cup final defeat. Only time will tell whether India are able to evoke similar emotions among their fiercest opponents.Also Read | World Cup 2019: Rohit Sharma breaks a Sachin Tendulkar record in ODIsAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma set flurry of records vs AustraliaFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

A spokesman for Gartner said the company would not issue a statement at the family’s request.According to local newspaper the Caledon Enterprise, however, a condolence blog post briefly shared to the company’s website prompted glowing tributes from her colleagues.“Andrea’s joyful energy brought smiles, happiness and laughter to everyone who was privileged to work with her and call her a friend,” area vice-president Alex Falkingham reportedly wrote in the post. “She had an uncanny ability to make any room she walked into a more positive place, with laughter filling the room. When Andrea smiled, everyone smiled with her.”Geraldine BradyBrady — a grandmother who was known as Gerry to her family and friends — sold Avon products for more than 45 years and was still going out to visit customers up until her death, her friend and fellow Avon salesperson Feanny Xu said.They met about 14 years ago at a conference and later started working as a team, Xu said, adding she believed Brady, 83, was visiting customers in the area when she was killed.“She was very honest and caring for others,” Xu said. “She is wonderful. It’s so sad.”Xu heard from Brady’s son-in-law on Tuesday that the family believed she had died in the van attack. But Xu said she was still devastated when it was confirmed on Friday.Anne Marie D’AmicoD’Amico, 30, worked at Invesco Canada, a U.S.-based investment firm with offices near the scene of the attack, and was remembered by those who knew her as a cheerful, friendly person.Tennis Canada said D’Amico had volunteered at its marquis Rogers Cup tournament every summer since the age of 12, starting out as a “ball girl” and eventually heading its stadium control committee.“She was a really friendly, warm person … always caring for other people ahead of herself,” said Gavin Ziv, vice-president of national events for Tennis Canada.D’Amico had attended Ryerson University in Toronto and a fellow alum remembered her as an active student leader with top grades, a wide social circle and an indelible smile.“Whether you kept in touch with her very closely or you didn’t talk to her for this past year, it just felt like you saw her smile yesterday,” Abdullah Snobar said.The Loretto Alumnae Association said D’Amico was also a graduate of the Catholic all-girls high school.Association president Maureen Harquail said D’Amico was one of two victims killed in the attack who attended Loretto Abbey Catholic Secondary School.So He ChungThe Loretto Alumnae Association said Chung, 22, was the other alum of the school who died in the Toronto van attack.“This was a tragic and senseless event that resulted in the loss of two bright, young Loretto Abbey graduates,” association president Maureen Harquail said in a statement. “We mourn their passing and will remember the impact that they had on us and on our community.”Chung was also a student at the University of Toronto, the association said.The university had confirmed one of its students was among the deceased, but did not release a name.“We are deeply saddened that a member of our community has died as a result of this terrible incident,” university president Meric Gertler said in a written statement. “We mourn the loss of our student and want those affected to know that they have the support of the university.”Mary Elizabeth (Betty) ForsythForsyth, 94, was a resident of a Toronto Community Housing complex in the area where the van attack occurred. A neighbour said Forsyth’s nephew called her to say she had died.Mary Hunt described Forsyth as a “lively person” who loved to feed the birds and squirrels on her regular walks through the neighbourhood.“Everybody knew Betty because she used to walk in the morning to feed the animals,” she said.“I will miss her,” the 84-year-old said of Forsyth, who had been her neighbour for more than 10 years.Chul Min (Eddie) KangKang, 45, who worked at the Copacabana Brazilian Steakhouse in downtown Toronto, was identified by co-workers as one of the victims.Joao Barbosa wrote on Facebook that Kang’s “daily happiness” was being missed at the restaurant.“It’s unbelievable that we lost you Eddie,” he wrote. “In our last encounter you called me ‘Amor mio’ smiling to me when I arrived at Copacabana … Rest in peace.”Mailee Ly, another co-worker, remembered Kang as a warm, friendly presence at the restaurant.“It hurts knowing I won’t be able to see your bright smile every weekend, or hear you say ‘Hi’ to everyone in your energetic voice,” she wrote on Facebook. “I don’t think you knew the touch and influence you had on everyone at Copa, simply because of your kind nature, and passion for cooking.”Ji Hun KimAuthorities said the 22-year-old was a student from South Korea who was studying in Toronto.Munir Abdo Habib NajjarNajjar, 85, was visiting his family in Toronto with his wife. He had only been in the country for a couple of weeks when the van attack took place, according to Harry Malawi, a family friend and president of the Jordanian Canadian Society.The family is in the midst of a three-day mourning period, said Malawi.“They are secluded right now and they ask everybody to accept their privacy,” he said. “We stand together, we want to help the family heal … physically, psychologically, emotionally and financially, they need all the help they can get.”Dorothy SewellSewell’s death was confirmed by her grandson, Elwood Delaney, of Kamloops, B.C.Delaney described his 80-year-old grandmother as an avid sports fan who “almost had as much love for the Blue Jays and Leafs as she did for her family.”“(She was) the best grandmother anyone could have asked for,” he said.last_img read more

UN agency launches new project to prevent rape in refugee camps

Although the incidence of rape in refugee camps in Kenya has dropped drastically, the United Nations refugee agency and its partners in the East African country have launched a project to strengthen existing actions to prevent and respond to sexual and gender-based violence.“Quite serious violations of the safety, security and dignity of refugees have occurred in many refugee programmes in the past,” UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) country representative George Okoth-Obbo said in launching the Preventing Sexual Exploitation and Abuse in the Kenya Refugee Programme last week.“It is an irony that refugees have fled their homes because they could not find safety, yet they arrive in asylum to find equally acute forms of danger, fear and anxiety.”He acknowledged that sexual and gender-based violence could happen in any refugee setting where the beneficiaries are vulnerable and rely on external parties to provide assistance and protection, noting that the new project is one of a series of steps taken “towards implicit and sustained ethical rectitude in the discharge of our responsibilities to our beneficiaries.”The project seeks to standardize the process of reporting and investigation when cases of abuse or exploitation arise. Representatives of the government, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), refugees and host communities are currently being trained in interview techniques and complaint investigation.In addition, educational materials and videos are being produced and distributed so that refugees and other beneficiaries of the Kenya programme can learn more about their rights, entitlements, and the zero tolerance policy towards sexual exploitation and abuse.Kenya hosts some 240,000 refugees in Kakuma camp in the northwest and Dadaab camp in the east. In the first years of the influxes into Kenya that started in 1991, the rape of women and girls by bandits, thugs and other criminals occurred with shocking frequency and magnitude, according to UNHCR.Today, through the sustained interventions of the government law enforcement agencies and the work of UN agencies and NGOs in Kenya, rape has been reduced drastically. In Dadaab for example, rape incidents dropped to 16 last year, down from 1,500. read more

Diego Simonet out of Rio 2016

Argentina handballDiego Simonetrio 2016 handball The Montpellier star has torn the anterior cruciate ligaments of his right knee and will be out of the courts for at least six months. Last Saturday, in an action during the match against Flensburg for the eight finals of the Champions League, the Argentinian fell to the floor in pain and abandoned the court.What at first appeared to be a bad injury, looked less important when he bounced back to play, wearing a protection. But the injury has been confirmed today, and it struck in just when Montpellier was enjoying Simonet at his best.Tonight, on the Argentinian radio show Handball de Primera, Dr Carlos Marino, from the medical staff of the South American team, will give more insights of an injury that will very likely make the centre back miss the Olympic Games, as well as every competiton in the following months.TEXT: LAURA AGENA ← Previous Story ANOTHER FAIL: Brazilian giant Fereira to RK Vardar Skopje Next Story → NEW WISLA LOOK: Five players leaves at the end of Cadenas’ era read more

The Disappeared Search to take place in France for man murdered by

first_img Short URL I am convinced that there is a genuine desire on the part of those supplying the information to get this resolved by finding where Seamus is buried. By Sean Murray Share Tweet Email1 The Disappeared: Search to take place in France for man murdered by the INLA The search for the remains of Seamus Ruddy will take place in a forest outside Rouen, northern France. May 2nd 2017, 7:05 AM THE INDEPENDENT COMMISSION for the Location of Victims’ Remains (ICLVR) has confirmed that it will resume the search for the remains of Seamus Ruddy, who was murdered by the INLA over 30 years ago.Newry-born teacher Seamus Ruddy was abducted from Paris in 1985 and is counted among The Disappeared, a group of people believed to have been killed and buried secretly during the Troubles in Northern Ireland.In addition to Ruddy, the remains of Columba McVeigh, Joe Lynskey and Robert Nairac have yet to be recovered.The search will focus in a forest at Pont-de-l’Arche outside Rouen in northern France, an area previously searched by the ICLVR in 2008.The ICLVR recovered the bodies of victims Brendan Megraw, in 2014, and Kevin McKee and Seamus Wright in 2015.Geoff Knupfer, who leads the team that found that trio, said that the information they are working from in the search for Ruddy is “as accurate as it can be given the passage of time”. He said: Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article https://jrnl.ie/3364976 Tuesday 2 May 2017, 7:05 AM 16 Comments Seamus Ruddy Source: Wave Trauma CentreHe said that in the cases where the other men were found, their bodies had been exactly where the ICLVR had been told they’d be.“It is always a question of narrowing that down to a precise location,” Knupfer said. “I really hope that we can do this again and find him.”While previous search sites had been huge, the area they will search for Ruddy in is only the size of half a football pitch.The brother and sister of Ruddy appeared on an episode of RTÉ’s Nationwide in 2015, where they expressed their wish to be able to give Seamus a proper burial.Terry Ruddy said: “There’s no point in trying to pursue somebody for something that happened thirty years ago. There’s no point in the information being withheld.Somebody knows where his remains are. Surely after thirty years if we can forgive the deed the remains could be given back to us. All we want to do is get the remains and give the remains a Christian burial.The joint UK and Irish commissioners of the ICLVR, Sir Ken Bloomfield and Frank Murray, expressed their hopes that the search would be successful and appealed for anyone with information about the other missing people to come forward.They said: “We are mindful, however, that as we start this search there are three other families who still await the word that we can move forward on their cases.At the Palm Sunday Mass, Archbishop [of Armagh] Eamon Martin made a powerful plea to those who hold information but have yet to come forward to do so. We echo that appeal today.They added: “Anyone with information on the Disappeared can contact the ICLVR in complete confidence on 00800 555 85500,  by writing to ICLVR, PO Box 10827, Dublin 2. or via the website www.iclvr.ie.”Read: Murdered by the IRA, the body of this British Army Captain has been missing for 40 yearsRead: “No grave to tend, no place to grieve”: The four remaining ‘Disappeared’ 11,845 Views last_img read more

Of note, there are major updates to Siri as well as some new productivity features. Siri, for example. Will be getting a new voice. She (or he, if you prefer) will now have better pronunciation, more frequently use context to discern meaning, and speaking with a more natural inflection. Siri will “learn” by leveraging data across apps. Part of that will help people more easily shoot more complex, informative messages on the go. Namely, when you’re driving, and someone asks what you’re up to.To go along with those features, maps will be getting some new upgrades as well, including lane assist to help you know where you need to be ahead of time. We’ve all been driving down that unfamiliar road and had to switch lanes at the last minute to make an exit, yeah? Well, that may be a thing of the past. Plus, Maps will be getting a special Do Not Disturb feature as well. Apple hopes that these additions will help you avoid using your phone behind the wheel — at least until we can offload that entire sector of our economy onto AI. Major cities will also have indoor maps to help you navigate popular malls and destinations in places like Washington DC and Tokyo — for when you’re in meat space.Beyond that, the Cupertino-based giant announced several new hardware lines. The MacBook family got an update. Laptops will now be equipped with Intel’s recent Kaby Lake processors. And that’s about it, actually. There are some other minor hardware updates, but for the most part, this is one of those “in-between” updates.The real big-hitter for hardware this time is the updated iMac Pro. These are designed for professional (who knew?) spaces and can come with serious computing hardware. You can get up to an 18-core Xeon processor (so not the new mega-powerful i9, but probably not too far off, either). You’ll also get a ton of SSD-based storage, insane amounts of memory and a decent amount of I/O ports given the manufacturer. While creative professionals the world over are most certainly salivating, let’s not forget that Apple tax. The new iMacs start at a cool $1099 and the Pro starts at a whopping five grand. Oh! And it won’t ship for another six months. C’est la vie.Rounding out the major announcements today, we have ARKit, a new software package to help developers with augmented reality apps and games. Pokemon Go will be one of the first to use the new functionality. With luck, it should ease the computing requirements and save on battery for AR-enabled apps, but we’ll have to wait a bit to know for sure.Eager for a piece of the personal assistant/smart speaker pie, Apple will be releasing their HomePod system, a Siri-enabled smart speaker that does all the usual things you’ve come to expect. It’ll be available for $349 and will start shipping in December. iPad Pro users also have something to look forward to — a 10.5-inch version coming next week. It starts at $649.All told, this was about what we’ve come to expect — incremental changes and upgrades. Nothing terribly earth-shattering, but we also haven’t seen nearly as much of the company’s trademark out-of-touch, breathlessness surrounding basic features and rudimentary ideas that everyone else has been enjoying for years. And that’s… well, it’s definitely something.last_img read more
