London Olympics 2012: Playing on left court will benefit Leander Paes

first_imgOne of the concerns when Leander Paes and Sania Mirza were named as the mixed doubles pair for the London Olympics was their combination on the court.Sania and Paes are excellent deuce (right) court players which mean that one of them will have to change to left court. With mixed doubles being India’s best bet for a tennis medal in the Olympics, the two will have to be spot on with their combination.The problem would not have surfaced had Mahesh Bhupathi and Sania played in mixed doubles as the former is a left court player.SP Misra, who has been appointed the non-playing captain for the London Games, for one thinks that Paes should stick to the deuce (right) court and Sania should change to left.”I feel Sania should play from the ad court. She has solid ground strokes and with her good returns she will be able to support Leander from that side. Leander’s strength has been playing from the deuce court and he need not change,” said Misra, a former Davis Cupper.Misra also pointed out that Paes has seldom played from the ad court. “He has played with various partners on the international circuit, but he has always played from the right side,” he added.However, it may be recalled that when Paes and Sania played at the Doha Asian Games, one of the few occasions when the two joined hands, it was the former who changed his preferred side and played from the left. The two returned with a gold medal.advertisementThe same debate raged when Paes and Sania played at the 2010 Commonwealth Games at home. This time the opposite happened. Paes played from the right and Sania changed to left. The experiment did not work out as they suffered a shock exit in the quarter-finals. Paes and Sania have not played together since then.While Paes has spoken to his men’s doubles partner Vishnu Vardhan and will play with him at the World Team Tennis event in USA, there has been no communication between him and Sania.last_img read more

Watch: Referee Ron Cherry Got Knocked Out By Gruesome Hit

first_imgA referee signaling a touchdown during a Florida Gators game.(Photo by Sam Greenwood/Getty Images)Referee Ron Cherry took a nasty shot to the head and was knocked out by a USC player.Ron Cherry is a well-known referee in football. He’s well-known for one play call individual.But we’ll get to that later.First things first. Cherry took a helmet-to-head hit and went limp right away. With so much concern surrounding helmet-to-helmet hits, its easy to see why Cherry went down. Although he wasn’t hit too hard, the contact was more than enough to knock him down.Ron Cherry just got knocked out in the USC-Notre Dame game. @RedditCFB pic.twitter.com/7XMUkSm2xl— Henry Skutt (@henryskutt) November 26, 2016Cherry did get up and walk off the field under his own power, but looked clearly dazed.This is the same ref who gave us one of the best moments from a referee in football history.Ron Cherry is a legend. Not sure “giving him the business” is in the refereeing dictionary, but that won’t stop this guy.We wish him a very speedy recovery and wish him well.last_img read more

Labour Standards Guides Now Online

first_imgEmployers and workers now have quick and easy access to commonlyrequested information about laws affecting their workplaces. Fournew labour standards guides are now available on the Environmentand Labour website. “Posting these guides gives businesses and their employees mucheasier access to information on the Labour Standards Code andtheir rights under the code,” said Environment and LabourMinister Kerry Morash. Four plain-language brochures were produced – Labour Standards:An Overview, How to File a Labour Standards Complaint, Respondingto a Director’s Order and How to Appeal a Decision of the LabourStandards Division. A complete plain-language guide to the Labour Standards Code isalso available online. The code establishes provisions foremployment standards, such as minimum wage, vacation and specialleave, designated holidays and termination procedures. The LabourStandards Code applies to all Nova Scotia workplaces, unless theworkplace has established its own standards through a collectiveagreement. Inquiries about rights and responsibilities in the workplace arecommon. In 2003-04, the department received about 41,000 queriesby phone, representing an increase of about 18 per cent from theprevious year. E-mail inquires saw the greatest increase. Theywere up 80 per cent from the previous year, from 483 to 866. During the same time period, the department also reduced itsbacklog of complaints on workplace rights and labour standards.As of June 2004, the backlog of complaints dropped to less than100, down from 800 in August 2003. Customer service has improveddramatically and will continue to improve in 2004. “We’re really encouraged by the progress we’ve made so far, andare working hard to continue to improve access to services foremployers and employees,” said Mary Belliveau, director of LabourStandards. During 2003 the department implemented many improvements to theLabour Standards Code. It increased the minimum wage twice, toreach par with all other Atlantic provinces, and improvedstandards for overtime and vacation benefits, among otherchanges. By improving online access to the division’s many publications,the department is also providing employers and employees withconvenient, responsive and accessible information.

Jail recommended for police officer after highspeed crash kills boy

first_imgLONGUEUIL, Que. – A provincial police officer who crashed into a car at high speed and killed a 5-year-old boy during a surveillance operation will likely be sentenced to jail time.The Crown and the defence submitted a joint proposal to the court on Monday in Longueuil, Que. recommending that Patrick Ouellet receive an eight-month sentence.Quebec court Judge Eric Simard is expected to render his decision at the end of November.Ouellet was convicted in July of dangerous driving causing the 2014 death of Nicolas Thorne-Belance.The maximum sentence for the offence is 14 years in prison.The police officer addressed the court, expressing his sympathy to family members of Nicolas, who were in the courtroom.Ouellet’s trial heard he was travelling at more than 120 km/h in a 50 km/h zone when he hit the vehicle carrying the boy in a suburb just south of Montreal.The youngster died a few days later in hospital.“We have taken into consideration all the jurisprudence, in particular the sentences handed down to police officers who have come before the court in circumstances similar to those in this case,” prosecutor Genevieve Langlois said.(Cogeco Nouvelles)last_img read more

80s Classics Rejuvenated For New Album Benefiting amfAR

first_imgA collection of classic hits from the 1980s has been rejuvenated with re-imagined and updated versions by contemporary artists in The Time Is Now, a compilation album created specifically to benefit amfAR.The 14-track album will be released on October 7 by Republic Records and Mass Appeal and is available for pre-order today.Among the notable covers featured in The Time Is Now are the album’s first singles: a soulful rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” by singer-songwriter Aloe Blacc. Those who pre-order the album receive a copy of the track instantly. Check out the song here.The album will also include a rendition of New Order’s “Bizarre Love Triangle” performed by Sugar for Sugar, consisting of Scarlett Johansson, Julia Haltigan, Holly Miranda and Kendra Morris. In addition, the band Lower Dens provides their updated version of Hall & Oates’ “Maneater”, while the pop rock group DNCE puts its stamp on Tina Turner’s “What’s Love Got to Do With It.” Dita Von Teese and Sebastien Tellier revamp “Do You Really Want to Hurt Me” by Culture Club, while the songwriting duo Marian Hill performs Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me).”The artwork for the album cover was designed exclusively for amfAR by the talented and generous British artist Tracey Emin.The Time is Now is the brainchild and labor of love of executive producers Michelangelo Lacqua, internationally acclaimed music curator, Andy Boose, longtime producer of many of amfAR’s events, and Peter Bittenbender, CEO of Mass Appeal.“The 1980s was a decade of revolutionary changes in the music scene, with an explosion of new sounds and rhythms, the ascendance of MTV, and the emergence of new musical movements on both sides of the Atlantic,” said Bittenbender. “Music also provided the soundtrack to people’s daily lives and was a source of inspiration and solace with the advent of HIV/AIDS. This album is a tribute to that extraordinary time.” said Lacqua. “The Time Is Now is a music-driven call to action in support of amfAR’s push to end HIV/AIDS in our lifetime.” said Boose.Since the beginning of the epidemic, musicians have supported the fight against AIDS in countless ways, raising awareness and funds through benefit concerts, donated royalties and proceeds, and other contributions. Throughout its history, amfAR has enjoyed the steadfast and generous support of the music industry. In 1985, Dionne Warwick, Elton John, Gladys Knight, and Stevie Wonder recorded a collaborative rendition of the song, “That’s What Friends Are For,” to raise money for amfAR. The song was Billboard’s number one single for 1986 and raised millions of dollars for AIDS research.“The Time Is Now is a great example of our longstanding relationship with the music industry, and we are deeply grateful to the artists who graciously donated their time and talents to the making of this album,” said amfAR Chief Executive Officer Kevin Robert Frost. “With continued support for HIV research, and we are confident that we will ultimately find a cure for the millions of people living with HIV/AIDS today.”The full track listing for The Time Is Now is:“Take Me Home” (Phil Collins), Performer: Phantogram

Movie Theater Attendance Hits 24Year Low Ticket Prices Rise Nearly 4 Percent

first_imgAdvertisement Advertisement Login/Register With: The National Alliance of Theater Owners (NATO) announced Wednesday that the national ticket average for 2017 rose 3.7 percent year-over-year to $8.93, up from $8.65 last year.At that average, the estimated number of movie tickets sold last year is 1.23 billion. While that is only a rough estimate that does not account for the higher ticket prices for premium formats and theaters in more expensive cities like New York and Los Angeles, NATO’s estimate is the lowest since 1993, when “Jurassic Park” was the top grossing film of the year and an estimated 1.24 billion tickets were sold.READ MORE Facebook LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Twitterlast_img

Attawapiskat diamond mine blockade causing De Beers financial damages could force shutdown

first_imgBy Jorge Barrera APTN National News ATTAWAPISKAT–An ongoing blockade by Attawapiskat residents of an ice road leading to a De Beers diamond mine in northern Ontario is causing “significant financial damages” and “irreparable harm” which could force the mining giant to shut its operations down, according to the company.De Beers officials hand-delivered a letter Tuesday night to Attawapiskat resident John Edwards warning him the company could seek an injunction against him if the blockade doesn’t end. It’s believed De Beers plans to deliver similar letters to at least two other individuals the company believes are involved in the blockade.The warning letter comes as all sides prepare for a meeting Thursday to discuss the situation. A meeting was initially planned for Wednesday, but Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence won’t return to the community until she ends scheduled meetings in Moose Factory, Ont.The blockade, which began Sunday evening, is now entering into its fourth day and is the second such action in as many weeks. A previous blockade ended last Thursday. De Beers has an about 45 day window to ship supplies up the ice road.The blockade forced a convoy of empty fuel trucks to turn back to the diamond mine on Sunday. It is set up about 8 kilometres from Attawapiskat on an ice road leading to the mine. The Victor mine sits about 90 kilometres west of the community.The ice road to the mine is connected to a longer, main ice road which connects Attawapiskat to Moosonee, Ont., about 260 kilometres to the south.The ice road is blocked by a cube truck, loaded with frozen meats and pizzas along with two barbecues, pallets and a constantly changing number of pick-up trucks.The number of people at the blockade fluctuates throughout the day. A small group, including three pick-up trucks, was at the site shortly after midnight Wednesday and they feasted on two free pizzas from town.The situation has been described as a “crisis” which is entering into “uncharted territory,” according to two community sources with knowledge of the situation who requested anonymity.De Beers’ move to threaten a court injunction against the blockade has also opened the possibility of intervention by the OPP. While the Nishnawbe Aski police patrols the community, the force does not have jurisdiction over the ice road.While it began quietly, the blockade has slowly gained support among some sectors of the community and its core group inclues three or four families who have traplines running through the vicinity of area controlled by De Beers.The families are seeking compensation for the loss of their traditional territory. Others involved, however, say they joined the blockade because they believe De Beers should be investing in housing for the community. Some involved in the blockade also have personal grievances related to past employment and rates of pay.Edwards joined the blockade because his uncle’s trapline runs through the Victor mine and his grandmother is buried adjacent to the site.Edwards told APTN National News he had no plans to withdraw from the blockade.Victor Mine manager James Kirby told APTN National News that the ice road was the mine’s “umbilical cord” and essential for its resupply. He said a prolonged blockade could force the mine to shut down.The ice road is used in particular for the transportation of fuel, machinery and spare parts too heavy to fly into the mine’s airport.The ice road link, however, has been severed for eight days as a result of the two blockades.The warning letter to Edwards was signed by Fasken Martineau DuMoulin lawyer Tracy Pratt. Pratt says the company has retained the law firm and states that De Beers “will not hesitate to protect and enforce its full legal rights through an injunction motion” if the blockade doesn’t end.“This unlawful conduct is causing our client significant financial damages and irreparable harm. Among other things, the blockade has serious health and safety implications and consequences for the mine’s continued full operation,” the letter states. “The continuation of this blockade cannot be tolerated.”The roots of the blockade extend years and centre on an impact benefit agreement between Attawapiskat and De Beers which was ratified in 2005.Those involved in the blockade say the IBA did not have full community support when it passed. They argue that the IBA doesn’t address the needs of the community or give Attawapiskat full benefit of the riches in their territory.Under the IBA, De Beers has transferred $10.5 million into a trust fund held by Attawapiskat as of January 2011.APTN National News has learned that De Beers is looking to use the trust fund money, which was originally created to provide funding for Attawapiskat into the future, to pay for some of the compensation claims issued by those involved in the blockade.The mine had also generated $448 million on gross revenues as of January 2011, according to a De BeersPowerPoint presentation on the IBA.De Beers says it has invested about $1.022 billion of capital costs into the mine.De Beers says about $325 million worth of contracts have been awarded to “solely owned or joint venture companies run by the community” since construction began. Some in the community dispute the number accurately reflects the reality on the ground. Some have also questioned the make-up of some of the joint ventures.De Beers says in its PowerPoint that a shorter Attawapiskat blockade in 2009 cost the company $3.5 million.jbarrera@aptn.ca@JorgeBarrera*Editor’s note: the IBA was ratified in 2005.

Thorir Hergeirsson before WCh 2015 Final They are flying Dutch girls

Despite happiness after winning the amazing semi-final thriller against Romania, Norwegian head-coach Thorir Hergeirsson could’t be totally satisfied with his team performance:– I am not satisfied with all things we did, but I see some good things.

Nokia shows off the Lumia 928 with its killer camera and audio

first_imgNokia’s having another one of its Conversations, and this time it’s about the upcoming Lumia 928 that’s due to launch on Verizon next week. What’s got Nokia so excited that it can’t wait to show this baby off? Everything.For starters, it’s the latest Nokia to include PureView camera technology. It’s still not that beastly sensor found in the 808, but it’s an astoundingly good low-light shooter. Carl Zeiss optics have been paired up with an actual Xenon flash — none of that LED tat for the Lumia 928. That should give the camera flash results that are on par with point-and-shooters. Optical image stabilization ensures that photo and video shot with the Lumia 928 will be jitter-free.Flipping the phone over reveals a display that’s similar (if not identical) to the Lumia 920. It’s a 4.5-inch AMOLED panel covered in Gorilla Glass of an as-yet-unspecified resolution. Nokia drops the same “PureMotion HD+” buzzwords it did with the 920, though, so it’s probably a 1280 x 768 affair.Nokia’s also jazzed about the Lumia 928’s cord-free features. NFC comes standard and allows you to pair and share with numerous other phones, tablets, and gadgets. The Lumia 928 can also handle inductive charging — so you can plunk it down on a FatBoy pillow or any other device that utilizes Qi wireless power tech.And remember those fancy high-amplification microphones that Nokia wanted banned from the HTC One? They’re part of the Lumia 928’s top-shelf audio gear, and Nokia’s Ifi Majid says they can capture distortion-free sound up to 140 decibels. That’s roughly equivalent to the noise level on the deck of an aircraft carrier — good to know if you’re ever on one and recording maneuvers.One other audio feature gets a mention: the external speaker. Nokia claims it’s one to two decibels louder than any other phone’s. That might not seem like much, but it should equate to tunes that are 25-50% louder than the competition.Like most other devices in its class, the Lumia 928 will sell for $99 on contract — but at least you’ll also snag a $25 credit for Windows Phone Store and those cool Nokia exclusive apps.last_img read more

Runners and flip flops keep washing up on the west coast of

first_imgRunners and flip flops keep washing up on the west coast of Ireland The shoes are believed to be from containers that fell off a cargo ship in 2018. SINCE THE END of last month, runners and flip-flops have been regularly washing up along the west coast of Ireland. The most recent discovery was on Tuesday when three pairs of runners washed up in Quilty, Co Clare.In 2018, multiple containers fell off a cargo ship that was travelling from Shanghai to North Carolina.The contents of the lost containers have now made its way towards beaches along Ireland’s west coast as well as hitting a number of European countries.Donegal, Connemara, Valentia and Fanore are some of the locations in Ireland to have come across the flip-flops and runners while Jersey, Spain, Brest, Cornwall, Brittany and the Azores have also recorded sightings. Liam MacNamara who runs the popular Facebook page, Burren Shores, says that none of the runners or flip-flops are in a fit state to be worn, adding that bite marks are evident on the footwear.According to MacNamara, the items belong to two companies, both of whom “have confirmed that they had a shipment on that boat that lost the containers”.“They are all very evasive about giving answers, of course, they don’t want to admit to anything really,” MacNamara added.  Source: Burren Shores Share32 Tweet Email2 May 2nd 2019, 6:20 AM 47,314 Views Image: Burren Shores Beachcombing and More.

The company subsequently made a donation to various environmental agencies and programmes, as well as issuing an envelope to return the ink cartridges.McNamara said he’s not “holding his breath” that something similar will occur this time.  Short URL 29 Comments Image: Burren Shores Beachcombing and More. https://jrnl.ie/4614416 last_img read more
