He was also responsible for recruiting youth from adjoining areas of Kulgam,” said the police.Bashir, police sources said, was a fresh recruit and had gone missing recently. Bhat took to arms in 2017. Hundreds of locals attended the funeral of the slain militants. As multiple rounds of funerals were held, locals said militants also attended one of the funerals.Protests over rape Mainstream political parties and separatist groups on Sunday condemned the alleged rape of a minor girl in Bandipora and demanded exemplary punishment for the perpetrators.

NIA constable arrested with fake notes worth 15 cr

first_imgNew Delhi: A constable with the National Investigation Agency (NIA) and a pantry staffer were arrested by Delhi Police for allegedly stealing Fake Indian Currency Notes (FICN) worth Rs 1.5 crore from the central agency’s strongroom. The matter came to light when NIA officials scanned CCTV footage. The NIA subsequently lodged an FIR with Delhi Police against the accused. The counterfeit currency was seized in May this year during a raid conducted in Gurugram. The recovery was reportedly made in the form of wads of Rs 2,000 currency notes.

Expectation of excellence apparent for Ohio State baseball

Then-freshman outfielder Tim Wetzel (31) takes an at bat during a game against Illinois May 26, 2011, at Bill Davis Stadium. OSU lost, 5-4.Lantern file photoA feeling of rejuvenation came over the Woody Hayes Athletic Center as the pitching staff of the Ohio State baseball team took the turf to begin practice.After earning the No. 2 seed in the Big Ten Tournament last year, only to miss out on the NCAA Tournament, the team is looking to take care of some unfinished business.Redshirt-junior pitcher and first baseman Josh Dezse, a third-team Louisville Slugger preseason All-American selection, said the team is aiming to get back in the spotlight this year.“We didn’t have a bunch of little goals,” Dezse said. “Our main goal is to go out and represent Ohio State in the National Tournament this year.”The program has enjoyed a resurgence under Greg Beals, who was named head coach in June 2010. The Buckeyes’ record has increased each year under his leadership and, even after coming so close to winning the Big Ten last year, Beals said he expects they should be an improved club this season.“Our goals, right now, are just to keep getting better. This is a younger team, but a talented team,” Beals said. “Our mentality is to win today.”The youth he is referring to can be largely found in the pitching staff. The team lost all three members of its starting rotation from last season. Losing that many innings from the rotation could be worrisome to most teams, but pitching coach Mike Stafford didn’t seem bothered by it.“We have a whole mess looking like they’re ready for some competition,” Stafford said.Freshmen pitchers Zach Farmer, Travis Lakins, Tanner Tully and Adam Niemeyer were specifically mentioned by Stafford as some of the young guns who are ready to bring some heat.Junior catcher Aaron Gretz said he doesn’t think the players’ inexperience will be a problem at all.“I think we’re going to have as good or an even better pitching staff than last year,” Gretz said. “Talent-wise I think they’re right there to being one of the top in the nation.”While the rotation will start out with some new faces, the bullpen brings some star power late into games, specifically in junior pitcher and closer Trace Dempsey. Dempsey, who joins Dezse on the third team All-American list, finished last season with a Big Ten-best 17 saves. As long as the starters keep opposing offenses at bay and Dempsey continues to show an ability to come in and slam the door at the end of the game, opponents could have a very difficult time scoring runs this season.The offense looks to put a lot of runs on the scoreboard at Bill Davis Stadium. Sophomore infielders Jacob Bosiokovic and Troy Kuhn, and junior outfielder Pat Porter, return after finishing in the top five in batting average last season. They also receive a boost from Dezse, who missed all of last season with a stress reaction in his back.With the team set to begin play in just over three weeks, it is time to stop talking about goals and start chasing them.“There’s no magical potion that you sprinkle on. It’s just good old blood, sweat and tears,” Beals said. “We have an expectation level … Ohio State has an expectation level of excellence. Combine the two of those and I think it broods for success.”The Buckeyes are scheduled to begin play in Port Charlotte, Fla., Feb. 14 against Connecticut as part of the Snowbird Classic. read more

Football No 10 Ohio State secures close 3631 win over Nebraska

Ohio State had expectations coming out of its bye week. After sitting on a 49-20 loss to Purdue on Oct. 20, the talk heading into the matchup with Nebraska revolved around the team playing angry, playing “pissed off” with players ready to prove that the Buckeyes are indeed a Big Ten championship contender, a College Football Playoff contender. And although it was not in dominant fashion like other games against Nebraska have been in the past, No. 10 Ohio State got back into the win column Saturday, defeating the Cornhuskers 36-31.“The biggest thing to get that darned bad taste out of your mouth from a couple weeks ago and go win the game,” Meyer said. “We’re going to go back to work. We’re going to enjoy that win now.” Offensively, it meant going back to its roots, the balanced offense, the offense that Meyer is comfortable with, the offense with the “two-headed monster” of redshirt junior running back Mike Weber and sophomore running back J.K. Dobbins as primary contributors. “We definitely wanted to run the ball today,” redshirt sophomore quarterback Dwayne Haskins said.”That was our goal for this game, for this Saturday, and I thought we did a pretty good job of that.” The pair combined for 254 rushing yards, recording the most yards on the ground the unit has had since Sept. 1, each averaging over seven yards per carry. Dobbins and Weber also became the first pair in Ohio State history to both have 2,000 career rushing yards. Dobbins showed this focus in the very first drive of the game, recording nine yards on the first two rushes, but the Ohio State offense of old returned, failing to convert on a short-yardage situation. It did not return for long. After Haskins connected with Dixon for a 42-yard score in the second offensive drive, Dobbins, at the end of the first quarter, brought the Buckeyes into the red zone with a 16-yard run, scoring his first touchdown of the day on a 10-yard rush.  But Ohio State could not take that dominating lead, the lead it needed to meet the expectation the Buckeyes had  for themselves after the 29-point loss to Purdue. In the first offensive drive of the game, Nebraska freshman quarterback Adrian Martinez led the Cornhuskers on a 12-play, 75-yard drive, ending with a 1-yard touchdown run by senior running back Devine Ozigbo. Even after breaks that fell in favor of the Buckeyes, blocking a punt that resulted in a safety in the first quarter and a whiffed onside kick attempt which Ohio State recovered at the Cornhuskers 31-yard line, they could not take advantage, losing two fumbles in the second quarter, leading to two 2-yard option scores by Martinez. Trailing 21-16 at halftime, the expectation for Ohio State was to have its offensive leader, Haskins, who had thrown for more than 400 yards in each of his last three games, use his arm to put the game out of reach for Nebraska. He led the offense on a methodical drive out of halftime, getting to the red zone, but threw his sixth interception of the season, a ball meant for Dixon in the end zone that landed in the hands of Nebraska junior cornerback Lamar Jackson. But the Ohio State defense stepped up in the third quarter to keep the Cornhuskers at bay. Nebraska averaged 3.6 yards per rush on 10 carries with Martinez completing three of seven passes for 17 yards. Overall, despite allowing 450 yards of offense and two plays of over 30 yards, Meyer said those big plays, the big plays that have plagues this defense and led to the success of opposing offenses, did not necessarily happen against Nebraska, vene though there are things to work on. “There’s defensively still some things but we didn’t give up a big hit,” Meyer said. “We had a couple of hits, but not the big hit. And we were without three starters in the back end of our defense.”Junior safety Jordan Fuller was ejected from the game in the second quarter after being called for targeting. With a secondary already struggling with depth, playing without sophomore safety Isaiah Pryor, who did not play due to an impingement to his shoulder, Fuller’s absence moved sophomore Brendon White into the safety rotation, recording 13 tackles and two tackles for loss in Saturday’s win. Meyer said, defensively, Ohio State was much improved against Nebraska, especially with the continuous lineup changes needed because of the injuries to Pryor and sophomore cornerback Jeffrey Okudah, who was suffering through a groin issue from this week’s practice, along with the loss of Fuller. He also said he expects to have everyone back in the rotation next week. Scoring two touchdowns on a 3-yard rush by Dobbins and a 9-yard shovel pass from Haskins to redshirt senior receiver Parris Campbell, Ohio State took the 30-21 lead heading into the final quarter. But Nebraska came back with a seven-play, 65 yard scoring drive, leading to an 18-yard field goal,bringing the Cornhuskers within one score. However, to extend the lead, Haskins led the Buckeyes on a 7-play, 82-yard drive, ending with a Dobbins 42-yard rushing touchdown, his third of the day. The sophomore running back finished with 163 yards on 23 carries, scoring three touchdowns in a game for the first time in his collegiate career. Nebraska sophomore wide receiver JD Spielman secured a 17-yard touchdown to bring the Cornhuskers back to within ne score with 2:57 left in the game, but, it was not enough as Haskins and the Ohio State offense did not allow another opportunity for Nebraska. Ohio State defeated a two-win Nebraska team, but Haskins viewed this as an opportunity to give future opponents an idea of what Ohio State will bring. “We are focused, motivated, angry,” Haskins said. “We just feel like we are being disrespected right now, but we are going to continue to fight and continue to show the country we are one of the top teams.” To Dobbins, this five-point win over Nebraska created a level of momentum Ohio State will use. “We have momentum right now,” Dobbins said. “We are going to take it into next week, because we have a big game next week.”  Ohio State goes back on the road to face Michigan State on Nov. 10. read more

The Breast is Best

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Jamaica, September 21, Kingston – Minister of Health, Dr. the Hon. Christopher Tufton, has reiterated calls for mothers to consider exclusive breastfeeding of their babies for the first six months of life in order to reduce infant mortality and morbidity rates.   He noted that appropriate breastfeeding practices have the potential to lower infant mortality in children five years old and younger by 14 per cent, while appropriate complementary feeding up to two years of age can prevent an additional six per cent of deaths among the age cohort.The Minister, who was addressing the National Breastfeeding Week conference and launch at the Jamaica Conference Centre, downtown Kingston, on Tuesday (September 19), said the target is for 50 per cent of infants to be exclusively breastfeeding at six months of age.   He noted that in 2005, the rate of exclusive breastfeeding at six months was 15.1 per cent, increasing to 23.8 per cent in 2011.“However, this is still well off course to meet the Global Nutrition Target of at least 50 per cent by 2025,” he said.Dr. Tufton said Jamaica is committed to reducing infant mortality and morbidity, and has agreed to, or has endorsed several international agreements and goals that are aimed at promoting and protecting infant and young child health.   He said that gains are being made, but there is still much work to be done to achieve the targets. He is urging persons to become informed about the benefits of breastfeeding.Research has shown that breastfeeding helps to reduce the risk of childhood asthma and obesity and non-communicable diseases (NCDs) later in life, such as diabetes and heart disease.   Long durations of breastfeeding also protect maternal health by helping to lower the risk of breast and ovarian cancers.Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Winston De La Haye, said National Breastfeeding Week is being observed from September 17 to 23 under the theme ‘Sustaining Breastfeeding Together’ and emphasises that “all sectors, all groups have a role to play in supporting breastfeeding”.He said the objectives of the two-day conference are to highlight the role of infant and young child feeding in the achievement of the sustainable development goals, share current elements of the benefits and impact of breastfeeding and effective strategies for the protection, promotion and support of breastfeeding.It is in keeping with World Breastfeeding Week 2017, observed by the World Alliance for Breastfeeding Action (WABA) in August through partnership with World Health Organization (WHO), United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), along with civil society groups.Also at the launch were  Pan American Health Organization (PAHO)/WHO Representative in Jamaica, Bermuda and Cayman Islands, Dr. Noreen Jack; UNICEF Representative in Jamaica, Mark Connolly; and Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Representative in Jamaica, The Bahamas and Belize, Dr. Gillian Smith.Release: JISlast_img read more
