By Chandraboli Mitra New Delhi, May 21 (PTI) One went on to make history while the other missed out on much deserved success but there is no hint of jealousy in the equation between Sakshi Malik and Vinesh Phogat and they continue to benefit from each other by training together. Sakshi scripted history by becoming the first Indian woman wrestler to win an Olympic medal when she bagged a bronze at the Rio Games last year, but Vinesh was unfortunate to bow out of the mega-event with a freak knee injury. However, Vinesh feels the success at the Olympics has not gone to Sakshis head at all and she still prefers to practice with her. “Sakshi has not changed at all after the Olympic medal. She remains the same and so is our equation. We have known each other from our cadet days. Our bond is very strong. She still looks forward to practising with me. Post Olympics, when I was recovering from my injury, Sakshi would keep asking me when I would return to full fitness and start practicing with her,” said Vinesh. Sakshi fights in the 58kg category, while Vineshs weight category is 48kg. Elaborating on how the two wrestlers, with a difference of 10kg between them, benefit by training with one another, Vinesh said, “We have been practice partners for a long time now. Our difference in weight helps us. “As Sakshi has higher weight, I try to match her strength and that helps me in increasing my power and stamina. On the other hand, my agility helps her improve her speed. Both of us motivate each other all the time,” explained the 22-year-old. After a nine-month injury lay-off, Vinesh, one of the Phogat sisters, made a comeback to the mat with a bang and clinched a silver medal at the recently-concluded Asian Championship. Vinesh fought in the 55kg category at the Championship, the heaviest weight division she has ever competed in at any tournament, because her doctors and coach Kuldeep Malik had advised her not to lose too much weight post her recovery as that could have weakened her muscles. “I have been asked to lose weight slowly. I dont want to fight in 55kg. At the World Championship in August, I want to be back in my original weight category of 48kg,” said the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games gold-medallist. Inspite of participating in a higher weight category at the Asian Championship, Vinesh came up with a commendable performance. Having won her quarterfinal and semifinal bouts without breaking a sweat, she gave a tough fight to Japans Sae Nanjo in the gold-medal round before going down 4-8 in a closely- fought contest. The wrestler is thankful to the medical staff of her sponsor — JSW Sports — for bringing her back on her feet at a time when she thought that her career was all but over. Praising their efforts, Vinesh said: “I am happy to be back on the mat. I thought I would never be able to make a come back again. I had a feeling as if that was the end of my career. “But the physios helped me to not just attain fitness but also gave me confidence that I could be my previous self and compete with the same intensity,” said Vinesh.

Hawkins agrees, but is aware of the challenges that lay ahead with bringing the competition forward, out of the school holidays and summer break.“In Sydney we know that people don’t think really about cricket until the Test rolls around, she said. “So there’s going to be some behavioural change that we’re going to need to drive. But we’ve built some really good will around the WBBL that I think people will naturally come with us. It’s a really exciting opportunity for us to see how it builds over the next five years and what it’s going to become. We want it to be the kickstarter of the summer of cricket in this country and it’s the perfect vehicle to do it with.”It’s likely to be an uphill battle, but no doubt one this elite group of athletes is ready for. The opportunity to flourish away from the dramas of the men’s game is integral to the growth of the competition and women’s sport more broadly. … we have a small favour to ask.

Sixers captain Ellyse Perry last weekend became the first Big Bash player (male or female) to reach 2,000 runs. Her achievement is incredible considering the men’s competition began four seasons before the women’s and her runs have come from only 58 innings. This season has also been the all-rounder’s best with the ball, taking nine wickets so far, four more than she did in the 2017-18 season.And while Perry’s form has been attracting the most media attention, there has been no shortage of excellence throughout the competition. Perry’s teammate Alyssa Healy, as well as the Adelaide Strikers pair of Sophie Devine and Suzie Bates, have also been piling on the runs. The Perth Scorchers’ Heather Graham has taken 22 wickets across her 14 games this season, while three wicketkeepers – Healy, the Hobart Hurricanes’ Georgia Redmayne and the Brisbane Heat’s Beth Mooney all sit at 15 dismissals.With the competition pumping out both excellence and nostalgic summer picnics in equal measures, the introduction of the standalone season looks like it will be just what is needed to boost the WBBL to new heights. 2018: women’s sport leads the way in a landmark year It has been a season to remember for the Women’s Big Bash League as the competition heads into its fourth finals series this weekend. With the state of men’s cricket in disarray and the BBL’s longer format leading to a slight downturn in crowd numbers and television ratings, the WBBL has taken the opportunity and run with it.TV ratings have been encouraging – a number of matches over Christmas have drawn viewer numbers of close to 300,000. Even matches shown only on pay television have drawn steady numbers of 50,000 per game. With the competition moving to a standalone format to be played from October to early December this year, these are promising signs for the future.This season has also marked the start of the two NSW teams – the Sixers and Thunder – charging entry fees at suburban grounds for WBBL matches. It was a fraught decision and the new direction taken could have gone either way, but Sixers general manager, Jodie Hawkins is certain it was the right one for her team.

We get 1,000 most days and 3,700 for the derby at North Sydney. We choose grounds that have great wickets to play on, which is obviously really important for the game, but that are also great from a fan engagement point of view.”That engagement and creating the matchday experience is where the WBBL has really been able to set itself apart from its male counterpart. While casual fans may be driven to the excitement, pyrotechnics and loud music of a BBL match, many cricket fans prefer a more mellow vibe and the WBBL offers that. With its summer afternoon matches in suburban grounds full of picnic blankets on lush green hills, kids starting up their own mini-matches around the perimeter and old-fashioned canteens serving sausage sandwiches, it’s a far cry from the modern sporting experience. It’s a perfectly idealised version of cricket watching that older generations are delighting in introducing their children and grandchildren to.

Full ScorecardKuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal destroyed New Zealand in Napier on Wednesday as India won the first ODI by 8 wickets. Mohammed Shami was named man-of-the-match for his three-wicket haul but India’s spin twins had a field day.In Australia, Kuldeep and Chahal did not play any of three ODIs together. While Kuldeep, a left-arm chinaman bowler, played the first two ODIs, Chahal was included in the series decider in Melbourne where he picked a six-wicket haul to script a famous win for India.In Napier, Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal were named in the playing XI and the two rocked the Kiwis. Chahal removed the dangerous Ross Taylor early on in his spell before dismissing Tom Latham.Kuldeep then ran through the New Zealand lower order and finished with figures of 4 for 39 off 10 overs.The two wrist spinners played together for the first time this year and made a mark immediately, much like they had in the six-ODI series in South Africa a year ago.Kuldeep, speaking on Chahal TV for bcci.tv, told Yuzvendra Chahal what was really special about bowling with him.”When you play, it’s great because we understand each other well. when you bowl from the other end.. it’s not that we always bowl in tandem.”Sometimes, you start and I come on later and vice versa but we keep discussing our tactics.. It’s important because we use our variations well together and that’s why batsmen get confused and we get so many wickets. We got many wickets in South Africa, India and now we have started well in New Zealand,” Kuldeep said.advertisementMUST WATCH: @imkuldeep18 makes his debut on @yuzi_chahal TV.On our latest episode of Chahal TV, we bring you “KULCHA” served hot straight from Kiwi Land – by @RajalArora #TeamIndia #NZvINDFull Video here https://t.co/cXvXGDen0A pic.twitter.com/l00E772zPj BCCI (@BCCI) January 23, 2019Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal were sensational in South Africa in 2018 with 33 wickets between them.Virat Kohli was impressed with his spin twins after a clinical win on Wednesday. “The lines and lengths bowled by the spinners were brilliant because the pitch only slowed down in the second half and they were really good.”Also Read | Watch: Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni find a unique way to celebrate India’s victory over New ZealandAlso Read | Virat Kohli overtakes Brian Lara, storms into top 10 of leading ODI run-scorersAlso Read | He will close his eyes and defend: How Dhoni masterminded Boult dismissalAlso Read | #10YearChallenge What changed for India between Hamilton 2009 and Napier 2019Also Read | Virat Kohli rested for last two ODIs and T20I series vs New Zealand, Rohit Sharma to leadFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Story Highlights “The whole area of fish and seafood is on the horizon for us. It’s an exciting area that can even be better. It needs to be expanded beyond aquaculture and fish farming, which is more in the inland area,” he added. Minister of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries, Hon. Audley Shaw, says local fishermen should focus less on nearshore practices and instead take advantage of opportunities offered out in the deep ocean. Addressing reporters at JAMPRO’s third staging of the Jamaica Investment Forum at the Montego Bay Convention Centre, St. James, on June 13, Mr. Shaw said it is an acknowledged fact that the deep sea is an untapped area with enormous resources that Jamaica should attempt to utilise. Minister of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries, Hon. Audley Shaw, says local fishermen should focus less on nearshore practices and instead take advantage of opportunities offered out in the deep ocean.Addressing reporters at JAMPRO’s third staging of the Jamaica Investment Forum at the Montego Bay Convention Centre, St. James, on June 13, Mr. Shaw said it is an acknowledged fact that the deep sea is an untapped area with enormous resources that Jamaica should attempt to utilise.“The whole area of fish and seafood is on the horizon for us. It’s an exciting area that can even be better. It needs to be expanded beyond aquaculture and fish farming, which is more in the inland area,” he added.Mr. Shaw said it is a global fact that “we don’t access enough of our deep sea resources”, resulting in billions of dollars being lost.He noted that a recent study done by a reputable international agency, titled the ‘Blue Economy’, shows that the deep sea is rich in potential and could easily make a positive impact on a country’s economy.“The blue economy is about vast resources in the deep sea. We are overfishing in the nearshore waters, but we are not accessing deep-sea resources. Some of these resources include sea cucumbers and sea urchins, black eel and other things that are in great demand,” the Minister said.Mr. Shaw pointed out that countries like China offer a ready-made market for these items, and that the tools will have to be found to assist fishermen and fisherfolk to capitalise on “what is now a very lucrative market”.“All the sea cucumbers, urchins and black eel that can be accessed, they will pay a premium price for them in China. The key issue is for us now to get the appropriate deep-sea-fishing technology to be able to go and pursue those resources to the benefit of our country. This can also help to develop a vibrant export market for these unique products from the deep sea,” the Minister said.The three day (June 12 to 14) forum is being hosted by JAMPRO under the theme: ‘Connect for Business’.
Kolkata: Newly-wed Trinamool MP Nusrat Jahan on Thursday sought to send a strong message of secularism, faith and humanity when she attended the International Society for Krishna Consciousness’ (ISKCON) Rath Yatra event here. Sporting a traditional look in a saree, ‘mangalsutra’ and bangles, the Bengali actress took part in all the rituals along with her husband Nikhil Jain and other dignitaries who participated in the chariot festival. Like every year, the event was inaugurated by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.

We stand for inclusive India, secularity and humanity,” Nusrat Jahan told reporters here. She said she feels honoured to be invited by the ISKCON and is proud of the various religions and diverse culture of the state where everyone comes together to celebrate the festivities. “Didi (as Mamata Banerjee is popularly called) is always present at the Red Road for Namaz during Eid. I think we all should come together and move towards a better tomorrow,” the young MP said.

Jain appreciated his wife for standing up against trolls. “It feels great that she has risen above all religion and become an MP. She has also given a fitting reply to all those who are trolling her wearing sindoor and everything. I am really proud of her views,” he said.
Lord Justice McCombe, sitting with Lady Justice King and Lady Justice Nicola Davies, said: “Clearly, Ms X proposes to do nothing which is unlawful on her part.”There is nothing in our statute which tells us that what she wants to do is in any way counter to the law or the morals of UK statutes.”Finding that the ban on commercial surrogacy was “expressly limited to acts done in the UK”, the judge said that “there seems to me to be an incoherence in depriving her of her claim at the outset when she personally proposes no wrongdoing, either under Californian law or under our own law”.Lord Justice McCombe added that it “cannot conceivably be said now that surrogacy as such is contrary to the public policy of our law”, and that it would be “overkill” for the court to prevent XX recovering the cost of surrogacy in California.Whittington Hospital NHS Trust argued at a hearing in November that awarding XX the costs of commercial surrogacy would be “enabling what amounts to a criminal offence”.Lord Faulks QC, for the Trust, said a 2001 Court of Appeal ruling, which held that the cost of commercial surrogacy in California was irrecoverable, was “binding”. But XX’s barrister Christopher Johnson QC argued that public policy had moved on.He added that his client had “suffered a litany of admitted failures at the defendant’s hands” which caused “progression from a benign wholly treatable pre-cancerous condition to a highly invasive cancer”.He concluded: “In Ms X’s traumatic and unusual circumstances expenditure on California surrogacies is reasonable.”Lord Justice McCombe agreed that public policy was not “ossified for all time”, finding that “the law no longer requires a bar to recovery of the damages claimed by Ms X on public policy grounds”.The court also reduced the amount of general damages awarded to XX by £10,000.XX’s solicitor Anne Kavanagh from Irwin Mitchell said: “This is a tragic case where, due to no fault of her own, my client has suffered grievous injuries including infertility at a young age.”It is now almost 10 years since her first smear test was wrongly reported by the Whittington Hospital, when she was 25 years old.”Her only hope of becoming a mother is by surrogacy using her own eggs which were harvested just before she started chemo-radiotherapy, as well as using donor eggs.”She is delighted that the Court of Appeal has granted her the costs of that treatment in California, where she will have the security of a legally enforceable agreement to protect her as well as the surrogate and baby in the event of any dispute, something which would not be available to her under English law.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

A young woman left infertile because her cervical cancer was not spotted for more than four years has been awarded the costs of having surrogate children in America by the Court of Appeal.Whittington Hospital NHS Trust admitted negligence in failing to detect signs of cancer, leading to the woman, known only as XX, developing highly invasive cancer requiring chemo-radiotherapy treatment, which left her infertile at the age of 29.The High Court awarded XX a total of £580,000 in damages last year, including the costs of fertility treatment, cryopreserving her eggs and having children by surrogacy in the UK.However, XX’s claim for the costs of four surrogacies in California, where commercial surrogacy is legal and binding, was dismissed as the court found that commercial surrogacy was still illegal in the UK and therefore contrary to public policy.–– ADVERTISEMENT ––But, giving judgment in London on Wednesday, senior judges allowed her appeal, meaning XX will now receive as much as an additional £560,000 to cover the cost of having children with commercial surrogates in the US.Her solicitors Irwin Mitchell say the ruling is the first time the costs of surrogacy in the USA have been awarded in a claim for clinical negligence.

Comments Share your voice Google YouTube Alphabet Inc. 7 Tags Tech Industry Mobile Apps YouTube is facing a scandal involving child exploitation. Getty YouTube is under fire again for allowing content that exploits children onto its platform. After reports of a “softcore pedophile ring” on the Google-owned site surfaced last weekend, YouTube on Thursday said it’s taking aggressive action to fix the problem. The company banned more than 400 accounts and took down dozens of videos that put children at risk. But even though YouTube addressed this particular controversy, critics of the company say they’re fed up that problems with child safety keep arising in the first place. For example, two years ago, YouTube faced a backlash after disturbing videos got past filters on YouTube Kids, a version of the service designed for children.”This has been happening for years,” Haley Halverson, vice president of advocacy and outreach at the National Center on Sexual Exploitation, said in an email. “Why isn’t it YouTube’s No. 1 priority to create sustained solutions, instead of carrying on with its current whack-a-mole approach?”The latest incident began on Sunday, when a video blogger named Matt Watson detailed how pedophiles could enter a “wormhole” of YouTube videos to see footage of children in sexually suggestive positions. In the comments of those videos, users would post time stamps linking to other videos, and YouTube’s algorithms would recommend even more of those kinds of videos. In response, advertisers including AT&T and Epic Games, maker of Fortnite, pulled ad spending from YouTube. YouTube declined to make an executive available for an interview, but in a statement a spokeswoman said: “Any content — including comments — that endangers minors is abhorrent and we have clear policies prohibiting this on YouTube … There’s more to be done, and we continue to work to improve and catch abuse more quickly.” But child advocacy groups say the company isn’t working fast enough. Not the first timeYouTube has a history of people abusing the service to exploit kids. In 2017, parents started noticing troubling videos appearing on YouTube Kids. One video showed Mickey Mouse in a pool of blood while Minnie looks on in horror. In another video, a claymation version of Spider-Man urinates on Elsa, the princess from “Frozen.” The videos were knockoffs depicting the beloved Disney and Marvel characters. Also that year, YouTube stoked controversy after sexually explicit comments appeared under videos of kids doing innocuous activities, like performing gymnastics.Outside the realm of child safety, advertisers that year also boycotted YouTube after their ads appeared next to extremist and hate content because of YouTube’s automated advertising technology. Major brands including AT&T and Johnson & Johnson ditched advertising on the platform.In response to those scandals, CEO Susan Wojcicki overhauled YouTube’s safety guidelines. The new rules included removing ads from inappropriate videos targeting families and blocking inappropriate comments on videos featuring minors. Two years later, critics are upset these incidents are still popping up. Josh Golin, executive director of the Campaign for a Commercial Free Childhood, says the problem is YouTube treating the issue like a public relations problem and just dealing with individual controversies when they receive media attention, instead of getting at the root of the problem.Golin said it’s particularly egregious that YouTube’s recommendation algorithm suggested even more videos that put children at risk.”If you realize that your algorithm is recommending videos that would appeal to pedophiles and you’re not stopping to think about that, what will make you stop and think?” he said. “If pedophiles won’t make you look in the mirror, what will?” There are no easy fixes, he said. Part of that is because of YouTube’s massive scale. It’s the largest video site on the planet, with more than 1 billion visitors a month. “I don’t think you can provide a safe space for children if your business model is volume,” he said.
There is no end to the smart-shoe possibilities: from ordering dinner and displaying works of art to evading spills and biodegrading.But what does the future hold for this increasingly popular technology?A new industry-insiders report suggests the smart shoe market will continue growing steadily through 2022.AdChoices广告Full details are hidden behind a $1,000-plus paywall. But a press release and sample document provide some insight into the global trade.Smart shoes—the kind with a high-tech brain, not formal loafers—typically feature a Bluetooth-connected accessory (usually insoles) that link activity or location to a smartphone app.The successfully crowdfunded Amazfit sneakers, for instance, connect to the Mi Fit mobile app to count daily steps and calculate calorie intake.Since the wearable bubble burst, intelligent footwear has taken its place, offering new and unique opportunities for everyone from athletes to couch potatoes. (Nothing says innovation like high-tops that order pizza and pause live TV.)Much the same as self-driving cars, the smart shoe market is dominated by a few key players—some big names (Nike, Under Armour, Adidas) and some relative unknowns (Salted Venture, Daphne, 361).Nike, of course, launched Hyperadapt 1.0, the first real self-lacing shoes, in 2016—a modern throwback to Marty McFly. Last year, Adidas invented a party-ready sneaker that shrugs off expels beer and vomit (just in time for Oktoberfest).More than 500 Kickstarter backers, meanwhile, brought the Digitsole Smartshoe—”the first auto-tightening, interactive, heating, and shock-absorbing sneaker”—to life last summer.Keep this up, and the bunny-ears method of tying shoes will go the way of the dodo.It remains unclear exactly what impact the burgeoning smart shoe market will have on the fate of retail, athletics, and childhood life lessons.In the meantime, check out Geek’s lineup of 11 pairs of amazing future shoes to see what the intersection of science and fashion has in store.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Qantas plan was only alternative, says Mr Joyce Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce has claimed Australia’s flag carrier has put together the right plan to take the airline into the future and survive what he has dubbed “complex times”. In a speech to the National Press Club yesterday, Mr Joyce admitted again that while Qantas was a great airline, it was a “poor business” which obviously needs to be brought back to profitability. According to Mr Joyce, 82 out of 100 people flying out of Australia are flying with an airline other than Qantas, the QF boss pointing out the net impact of competition from airlines into the Australian market. “Moving forward with the ground-breaking ten year partnership with Emirates to extend the airline’s reach while restraining costs fits the right plan, the alternative would be decline,” Mr Joyce stated. While former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd last week urged Qantas to adopt new China strategies, Mr Joyce claimed that working in Australia was challenging given the time it takes to “do almost anything”. “As part of a highly regulated aviation industry, we are dependent on the quality and timeliness of decision – making by governments, legislators, and regulators here in Australia, and in many jurisdictions around the world,” he said. Qantas has already allowed the sale of seats on the route via Dubai ahead of regulatory approval. Source = e-Travel Blackboard: K.W

By Poly PantelidesTHE HEALTH ministry is looking to buy services from private doctors in order to reduce huge waiting lists in the state sector for anything from major surgery to getting a scan, the health minister has said.Petros Petrides said the aim is to sell services to willing doctors at cost-price, i.e. pay private doctors whatever it would cost the state to treat the patient. The Cyprus Medical Association and the health ministry are due to discuss the proposal this week, Petrides said.The state health sector is over-extended and people may need to wait for over a year to be referred to a specialist or to receive lab results back even when the question the lab test aims to answer is whether a tumour is malignant or not.Petrides told journalists yesterday that it will be up to private doctors to opt to participate in his scheme, but with the recession biting into their income the hope was that referring patients to them would also benefit them as it would the state.Delegates of the troika of the European Commission, European Central Bank, and the International Monetary Fund are due to visit in July to review how the health sector is cracking on with a number of agreed changes, Petrides said.A formidable list in the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) agreed with the island’s lenders includes updating an actuarial study into the costs of implementing a National Health System and introducing clinical guidelines on high volume and high cost diseases.“The troika wants us to increase productivity,” Petrides said.As part of the health ministry’s efforts to do that, a decision has been taken to reduce the number of nurses allocated at outpatients’ clinics to what is strictly necessary to deal with a shortage of staff, Petrides said.And hospitals are now starting to use unused or underused hospital space to meet treatment needs, from haemodialysis to rehabilitation space for patients needing a longer recovery item after being in intensive care.To that end, a previously unused ward at Nicosia General hospital is now a rehabilitation centre and the hospital is also due to add eight more dialysis units staffed by nurses who need to be posted to oversee the process, Petrides said. Meanwhile, clinics and hospitals in other districts are being fitted with necessary equipment to improve their function.“I’m optimistic that the troika will be pleased with our progress,” Petrides said.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoAngels And EntrepreneursRobert Herjavec Announce Venture Could Make You RichAngels And EntrepreneursUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoIsraeli rape suspects freed, woman who alleged assault arrested (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboola
