first_imgThere are many factors that might have contributed to MS Dhoni taking an uncharacteristically tough decision on the playing XI for the game against Australia. After all, Virender Sehwag is a hard man to be dropped from the line-up in any format. While announcing his decision to play five bowlers at the pre-match press conference on Thursday, Dhoni had admitted it was “definitely one of the toughest decisions that I’ve taken so far” in his five-year captaincy stint. But while he hadn’t revealed that it was Sehwag who was to sit out, the Delhi swashbuckler’s practice schedule over the past three days had given a hint that he was not the team’s first priority. He didn’t bat on Tuesday, was among the last to pad up on Thursday, and sandwiched in between was his one solid net session in almost a week. Dhoni and Sehwag have had their differences in the past, which came to the fore most notably on the ill-fated tour Down Under earlier this year, on the issue of rotating senior players at the top of the order. But to cite those differences as the reason for dropping Sehwag would be taking things a bit too far. The decision to drop Sehwag and go in with three spinners was made easier for Dhoni him out of the team. Even when he does play, Sehwag averages just 21.75 in internationals, having scored just 348 runs in 17 matches. The strike rate might still be an excellent 149.35, but he has just two 50s to his name. He has been out of form for a while across formats now, and his fitness – never a strong point – has forced India to hide him in the field. But perhaps the biggest factor in Dhoni’s decision was this – with the Premadasa pitch assisting his spinners against England and predicted to get slower, it wasn’t too much of a gamble to go in with five bowlers, including all three of the spinners in the squad. At the very worst, the other six specialist Indian batsmen had shown enough form and firepower to post above-average totals, something that the team was now in a position to defend, given the insurance against one of the bowlers having an off day.advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgThe College GameDay crew in Columbus Ohio.ESPN College GameDayESPN has updated its college football “future” power rankings. The “FPR” is a projection of which college football teams will dominate the sport over the next three years. Here’s ESPN’s description:FPR is a projection of a program’s strength over the next three years, not just the 2016 season. An eight-person panel of ESPN reporters and analysts — Heather Dinich, Brad Edwards, Travis Haney, Sharon Katz, Tom Luginbill, Ted Miller, Adam Rittenberg and Mark Schlabach — graded teams based on five criteria, which were weighed differently to account for their impact on overall sustained success. The criteria: coaching (27 percent of the formula), current talent (27 percent), recruiting (20 percent), title path (16 percent) and program foundation (10 percent).Which team does ESPN think will rule the sport over the next three seasons? The reigning national champions.Alabama, which was overtaken by Ohio State in the 2015 edition of the FPR, has its No. 1 spot back. The Crimson Tide continue to recruit as well as ever and, coming off a national title, they’re an obvious choice for No. 1. Here’s the rest of the top 25:  Alabama's at No. 1, of course.

(Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)We can debate for days and weeks on end about which college football team is the best, or has been the best over a certain period of time. But nothing helps to make an argument quite like cold, hard data.ESPN college football insider Phil Steele compiled the FBS records and determined the teams with the best win rates over the past decade.Unsurprisingly, Alabama leads the pack with a record of 127-13. Given that they’ve won five national titles and eight SEC titles, it shouldn’t be much of a surprise.Coming in second is Ohio State, which despite only winning one national title in that span has been the dominant force in the Big Ten. They’ve lost more than two games in a season only once in the past 10 years.Here is the full list from Steele:15. Michigan State – 91-4114. Appalachian State – 89-3813. Georgia – 96-3912/11 (tie). TCU/Oklahoma State – 94-3610. Florida State – 97-369. Oregon – 99-338. LSU – 97-327. Wisconsin – 102-336. Stanford 102-325. Oklahoma – 105-284. Clemson – 112-273. Boise State – 109-242. Ohio State – 115-191. Alabama – 127-13FBS records last 10 years1 Alabama 127-132 Ohio State 115-193 Boise St 109-244 Clemson 112-275 Oklahoma 105-286 Stanford 102-327 Wisconsin 102-338 LSU 97-329 Oregon 99-3310 Florida St 97-3611 TCU, Okla St 94-3613 Georgia 96-3914 App St 89-3815 Michigan St 91-41— Phil Steele (@philsteele042) August 18, 2019Perhaps the most surprising name to see on the list so high is Boise State. The Group of Five titans haven’t been in the national title conversation since their Western Athletic Conference days, but have won at least eight games every year since 1999.The inclusion of Appalachian State on the list may also seem a bit out of place. Though they now dominate the Sun Belt Conference, the Mountaineers spent half of the previous decade in FCS.How, if at all, will this ranking change after the 2019 season?last_img read more

The time is now right for us to expand eastwards to provide the GAC brand of professional ship agency and husbandry services to our customers operating in the Far East, which has a coastline of over 5,000 miles and covers 22 maritime ports,” Arkady Podkopaev, GAC Russia’s General Manager, said.As the Russian Federation focuses on developing political and economic relations with the Asia-Pacific region, the country’s Far East has moved to the top of the agenda.The region includes a Free Port Zone established in 2015 covering Vladivostok, Nakhodka, Korsakov and several other ports.Close to the borders with China, Japan, and Korea, the area is a hub for trade with imports coming in from Asia, which are transferred to other vessels or the Trans-Siberian Railway for distribution to the rest of the nation.last_img read more

Kyung-wha Kang visited Nepalgunj, in the country’s south-west, and met with civil society organizations, lawyers and representatives of the Nepal Police to discuss issues of gender and discrimination. While in the city, she learned about the case of Hasrun Idrisi, a woman allegedly attacked and burned by family members over dowry issues.The largest field presence of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) in the world is in Nepal, with seven offices in the country. Prioritizing the bolstering of women’s rights, OHCHR has been monitoring and investigating cases of violence against women as well as advocating for justice for victims.During her trip, Ms. Kang hopes to see OHCHR’s activities on the ground first-hand. In addition to meeting with the National Human Rights Commission’s regional office, she will also hold talks with representatives of the UN Mission in Nepal (UNMIN).Yesterday, the top UN envoy to the country strongly condemned a bomb attack at a rally promoting the upcoming Constituent Assembly elections, saying violence and intimidation are inconsistent with the country’s transition to democracy.“Political differences must be resolved through peaceful means,” Ian Martin, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative, said in a press statement. “I have no doubts that acts of terror will discredit whatever cause they are claimed to promote with the Nepalese people as well as the international community.” 31 January 2008United Nations Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights Kyung-wha Kang kicked off a five-day trip to Nepal today to assess the rights situation in the landlocked South Asian nation. read more

Ontario’s provincial politicians are ready to pack up for the summer and not return to the legislature until October 28th, after the federal election.Normally, they break in early June and return soon after Labour Day.   But the Ford government says it has moved at an unprecedented pace over the past year, passing almost twenty bills. Government House Leader Todd Smith says politicians will spend the summer working hard on developing new policies that will be introduced in the fall.NDP Leader Andrea Horwath says premier Doug Ford either wants to spend time campaigning for Andrew Scheer federally, or wants to hide until after the October 21st election. read more

By taking this victory, the Polish team did what they hadn’t done in Kielce earlier this year and will bring two points home.Even though now Kielce can celebrate, the first part of the match wasn’t looking very promising for them. The very first minutes were tight but already after 4 minutes Barcelona forged ahead. Kielce had to work very hard to break through their opponents’ defence while Barcelona didn’t even have to try breaking through because they scored from the back, undisturbed by the defenders. Polish team couldn’t handle Lazarov and after 7 minutes they were behind with 4 goals (2:6). Kielce style seemed to be improving but the distance wasn’t changing much; Szmal and five penalty throws might have helped to prevent the gap from growing and Barcelona was keeping the 3-4 goal lead. In the last minute they had their chance to be ahead by 5 goals but Kielce got the ball and in 5 seconds or so Tobias Reichmann managed to run through the court and got a buzzer beater that made the result 19:16 for Barca.In the second half it was Kielce that forged ahead. Despite a couple of losses and mistakes, they got back into the game in the 38. minute (22:22). Kielce significantly improved their defence so Barcelona couldn’t construct their attacks as easily as in the first half; what is more, they weren’t doing too well in defence either as Kielce scored five times in a row and from 22:20 for Barca in 36. minute, the result changed to 22:25 in the 44. minute. However, this worse performance of the hosts ended after nearly 10 minutes as with 7 minutes to go, Jallouz equalised at 29:29. The game stayed tight until the very end; finally in the 59. minute Kielce gained 2-goal lead (33:31) and Barcelona didn’t manage to change this result until the final whistle.FC Barcelona Lassa – Vive Tauron Kielce 31:33(19:16)Barcelona: Sarić, Perez de Vargas – Bengoechea, Dujshebaev, Entrerrios 2, Gurbindo 3, Jallouz 4, Kopljar, Lazarov 12/3, Morros, Nöddesbo 2, Ruesga, Sigurdsson 4, Sorhaindo 1, Syprzak 1, Tomas 2.Vive: Szmal, Sego – Aquinagalde 2, Bielecki 9/8, Buntić, Chrapkowski 1, Cupić 4/1, Jachlewski 2, Jurecki 3, Kus, Lijewski 4, Reichmann 3, Strlek 2, Zorman 3.RK Vardar beat easily KIF Kolding 34:24 (16:7) with Dibirov, Toskic, Brumen and Cindric with four goals.Montpellier won crucial battle for TOP 16 in Sweden against IF Kristianstad 30:29.STANDINGS: 4.

first_img“The farm bill proposal offered by Conferees from the House Agriculture Committee today does not provide U.S. soybean farmers equity with producers of other program crops,” said Bart Ruth, President of the American Soybean Association (ASA). “ASA appreciates the sincere efforts of both House and Senate Conferees to complete this legislation in time to be effective with 2002 crops,” Ruth stated. “We call on Conferees to continue working in order to reach a compromise that is both fair and balanced for producers of all crops.”Ruth, a soybean and corn producer from Rising City, Nebraska, made his comments after release of details of the latest House plan at a meeting of the full House-Senate Conference Committee. The commodities title proposes a marketing loan rate of $4.98/bu. for soybeans, compared to the previous offers of $4.97/Bu by the House and $5.12/Bu by the Senate. The proposed House target price for soybeans is $5.82/Bu, compared to previous offers of $5.76/Bu by the House and $6.02/Bu by the Senate. The proposed fixed payment is $0.42/Bu, the same as in the previous House offer and the midpoint of the declining scale of payments provided in the latest Senate proposal.“ASA has made clear throughout the farm bill process that we are flexible on the level of each of the three support programs as long as soybeans are treated equitably with other crops,” Ruth continued. “We have clearly stated that the fixed payment for soybeans should be set at a higher level if our current loan rate is reduced.” Ruth added that, “The soybean target price and loan rate offered in the House plan are below the midpoint of the levels in both previous offers.”While urging House Conferees to make further changes in the House’s commodity title proposal to treat soybean farmers equitably, Ruth expressed ASA’s support for the payment limitation provisions in the latest House proposal. The soybean leader concluded, “We urge House and Senate Conferees to continue their efforts to reach a final bill that can be implemented for 2002 crops.”last_img read more
