ICC World Cup India vs England World Cup 2019: England beat India by 31 runs

first_imgNew Delhi: Rohit Sharma blasted his 25th century and had shared a brilliant 138-run stand with Virat Kohli. The Indian cricket team skipper is considered the ultimate chase master as the team looked to achieve the highest run-chase in World Cup history. Kohli had created a record by smashing his fifth consecutive fifty. However, Liam Plunkett managed to get Kohli driving loosely to backward point as the skipper fell for 66. The 138-run stand had consumed 155 balls and India were playing catch-up in response to England’s massive score.

Clippers’ Chris Paul out 6-8 weeks with torn thumb ligament

first_imgIn 36 games, Paul is averaging 17.5 points, 9.7 assists, 5.3 rebounds and 2.2 steals.Paul missed time in the past month with a strained left hamstring, and the Clippers lost six in a row during that stretch. This time, the team hopes they’re better prepared for his absence because of the lessons they learned while losing.“We better have learned something, right?” Mbah a Moute asked rhetorically. “… If Chris is out, we’ve learned it’s how hard we play. It’s not just the talent. We just can’t come out and expect to win because we have talent or on paper, we look good. We’ve got to come out at night and play hard, play harder than the other team. That way, you can take the pressure off not having Blake (Griffin) and not having Chris, having someone else hurt or not playing well. “Griffin, who has been out since before Christmas, could be returning soon, but Paul’s injury is certainly a blow to the Clippers, who have won seven consecutive games.“I’m not assuming the worst by any means, but I recognize there’s probably a chance he’s out a game or two in that best case, and in the worst case, we’ll deal with that.” Redick said Monday. “In the immediate future, hopefully it’s not serious. But, if it is, Blake’s going to be back soon. So, next guy up, I guess. We’ve kind of dealt with this a bit lately, and we’ll just continue to plug away.” Paul underwent a MRI on his left thumb Tuesday afternoon, the tests showing a torn ligament in his left thumb. He’ll undergo surgery Wednesday and he’s expected to miss six to eight weeks.With Paul out, guards Raymond Felton and Austin Rivers are expected to pick up point-guard minutes.For Paul, it’s the latest in a line of hand injuries he’s had that date to 2012, when he had his right thumb operated on after playing with Team USA in the London Olympics. Paul broke his right hand and required surgery last summer and missed time this preseason after spraining his left thumb.Paul injured the thumb in the second quarter, when his hand got trapped on Russell Westbrook’s hip. He left the game and didn’t return.Paul’s numbers in the first half of the season should’ve made him a lock for a spot on the Western Conference All-Star team. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img LOS ANGELES >> The players on the Clipper bench, the ones who saw their playoff dreams shatter in a matter of minutes a season ago, were immediately taken back to that heart-sinking place.Chris Paul had just injured his left hand, and on his way off the court, his frustration was impossible to ignore. He kicked a chair. He shouted back at the officials. And, as he walked off the court and into the locker room, the worst kind of nostalgia flooded into Clipper brains.The last time Paul looked like this — during Game 4 against Portland in last year’s playoffs — the Clippers lost him for the rest of the playoffs. So, before the end of the first half Monday night, they began bracing for the worst.“It was the same reaction,” Luc Mbah a Moute said after Monday’s win. “I mean, if he acts like that, something is not right.”last_img read more

30 Days: Wellington Regent Theater offering gift certificates for the holiday

first_imgChristmas specials: Santa Claus is coming to Wellington from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. today. “Arthur’s Christmas” will also be played at 2.In the next two weeks as we get closer to Christmas we will be holding a food drive.Stocking stuffers: Christmas gift certificates, of course.How to learn about the upcoming movie:Sumner Newscow will provide the public with the latest movie being shown at the Regent during the latter part of the week. Also you can log onto the Wellington Regent website at: http://www.wellingtonregent.com, or its Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/wellington.regent?fref=ts by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Most everyone loves a movie. So this Christmas, give your friends and family members gift certificates to the Wellington Regent Theater.If you or some of your friends haven’t been to the Wellington Regent lately since February, perhaps you should go. The picture and sound is unbeatable with its digital projection. Also, the movies are as recent as those you would find playing in Wichita. Just two weeks, as you are aware of, Regent held a midnight showing of “Catching Fire – The Hunger Games” which was released to the public. Regent sold out on a school night marking one of the most remarkable nights in the theater’s history.Now with digital projection, the theater will always be able to nab the latest releases in a timely fashion. It wasn’t always like this. Wellington Regent actually started as a 20th Century Fox movie theater called “Ashland Theater” in the 1920s. Before that is was a horse barn, said Wellington Regent Theater manager Jerry Fike.“In those days the movie studios used to just own the theaters around the country,” Fike said. “They could make a movie in about two weeks and then they would have people take the movie from movie house to movie house.”For example one movie might play in Pratt one week and then get transferred to another movie in Wellington.Wellington Regent has survived the test of time. Competing movie theaters and the drive ins closed their doors for good.The Fikes bought the movie theater in 1994 from Ken Brown, who owned the movie theater from 1981 to 1994. The Regent temporarily closed its doors for a few years in the early 2000s. The Kevin Beggs family did some extensive remodeling and ran it for a couple of years, before it closed again.  Then in 2010 several Wellington civic leaders got together and decided to invest in the reopening of the theater.The Regent opened its doors again but still had the daunting task of getting a digital projector. The theater spent two years working on various fundraisers before getting a digital projector. Once the digital projector was installed the crowd came back for good.Today the movie theater thriving.last_img read more

national technical directors will be involved in selection process— Abuja hosts awards ceremony on Jan 5 2017 Share on: WhatsAppcenter_img Hot favourite for the top award however is Riyad Mahrez of Algeria.The winger, who is equally efficient at scoring and creating goals, was a key figure for sensational 2015-2016 English Premier League (EPL) title winners Leicester City.His efforts were acknowledged by fellow professionals in the most watched domestic football league in the world when they voted him EPL Players’ Player of the Year.Mahrez has been equally impressive for Algeria, who have been consistently among the top ranked African football nations for several years.So good has been his form on the right side of midfield that long-time Algerian football icon Sofiane Feghouli cannot always make the starting line-up for the Desert Foxes.It would be a shock if Mahrez, who joined Leicester two years ago from French outfit Le Havre, is not named African Player of the Year in Abuja on January 5.The Algerian is one of three Leicester stars in the running for the top African football individual award — the others are compatriot and striker Islam Slimani and Nigeria winger Ahmed Musa.EPL footballers dominate the 30-star list with 12 included, three come from the Italian Serie A, two each from the Spanish La Liga and French Ligue 1 and one from the German Bundesliga.CAF media, development and technical committee members, journalists and TV consultants and national coaches or national technical directors are involved in the selection process.The lone nominee from the Bundesliga, Gabon and Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, was a controversial 2015 winner.Ivory Coast and Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure, who was seeking a record-extending fifth consecutive award, publicly criticised the choice of the Gabon goal-poacher.Toure dismissed the outstanding form of Aubameyang for Dortmund in the Bundesliga and the Europa League, saying 2015 Africa Cup of Nations performances should have been prioritised.He was part of the Ivory Coast team that won the African showpiece for the first time in 23 years, ending a decade of under-achievement by a self-styled ‘golden generation’.Toure has been sidelined amid a war of words between his agent and new Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola and was not nominated.Three Ivorians made the list — veteran winger Gervinho, centre-back Eric Bailly and controversial Paris Saint-Germain right-back Serge Aurier.The defender is being investigated by world body FIFA for making a throat-slitting gesture after creating a goal for Ivory Coast in a World Cup victory over Mali last weekend.But Mali coach Alain Giresse has hailed Aurier, saying he “saved the life” of opponent Moussa Doumbia by preventing him swallowing his tongue after being knocked unconscious.African Player of the Year(30 nominees)Algeria: Riyad Mahrez (Leicester City/ENG), Islam Slimani (Leicester City/ENG), El Arabi

Stefani strikes gold at 2016 BC Winter Games

first_img“It made me want to perform my best floor routine. We had to wait two hours for the floor final,” added Stefani. “It was torture. I just wanted to get out there and tumble.”The floor event final had the audience on the edge of their seats, with all 12 participants performing personal best routines. Stefani was the sixth gymnast to perform.Going into her routine the highest score was 9.6 out of 10. She performed a high back layout in her first tumbling pass to a perfect stick, in her second tumbling pass she fought hard not to take a step.“It was obvious that Brianne had a goal of locking up a top three finish at the Games,” said Long.“She fought for every landing and performed all of her skills with maximum amplitude.”Long said Stefani is also very expressive and a beautiful dancer which contributed to the artistry score.Stefani’s routine earned a 9.6, which put her in a tie for first, with six gymnasts yet to perform. One other gymnast also scored a 9.6, making a three way tie for the gold medal.“It was wonderful to see all three girls up on the podium to receive the gold medal,” said Long.“They all had near perfect performances and they all deserved to be up there.”Stefani is already planning to attend the next BC Winter Games in two years.  She will need to move up into the Level 8 category in order to compete at the next Games.“I am already planning out my routines for the next Winter Games,” said Stefani. “I’m excited get back into the gym and start working on new Level 8 skills.”Stefani will start adding new more advanced skills into her routines for the BC Provincial Championships which takes place April 15-17 in Langley.Long said that they will use the Provincials as a stepping stone into Level 8.“Brianne is a very motivated and hardworking gymnast,” said Long. “I’m confident that she will be able to achieve any future goals that she sets for herself.” Nelson’s Brianne Stefani struck gold at the 2016 BC Winter Games this past weekend in Penticton.Stefani, 11, captured the gold medal on the gymnastics floor event during the provincial competition.On day one of the gymnastics event, the Glacier Gymnastics Club gymnast placed 11th overall in the Level 7 category and qualified for the floor event finals in second place and the beam event finals in third place.“The point spreads between first and fourth was two tenths of a point in both events,” said Stefani’s coach, Sandra Long.“We knew going into the finals that Brianne’s routines would need to be close to perfect in order to get on the podium.”Unfortunately, Stefani had a couple of small wobbles and a step during the beam event finals, which dropped her into fourth place. “Beam is a highly stressful event, no one had a perfect performance in finals, including Brianne,” said Long.Nelson’s Glacier Gymanstics Club’s members are still very proud of Stefani’s beam performance which missed securing the bronze medal by two tenths.“One less wobble and the results would have been in Brianne’s favour,” said Long.The disappointment of the beam final results helped pump Stefani up for the floor event final.“I was so close,” said Stefani.last_img read more

“National Legislature Holds Liberia’s Future”

first_imgHead of the National Traditional Council, Chief   Zanzan Karwor  has said that the country’s future would be bright only if the National Legislature would accept  all the recommendations that will be put forward by delegates attending the National Constitution Conference, in Gbarnga, Bong County.Chief Karwor told the conference that “You have spoken and it rests with our lawmakers to accept what you have said.”Speaking at the opening of the four day National Conference currently taking place at the Gbarnga Administrative building, in Bong County, Chief Karwor described the conference as a “bird in the hands of the Legislature.”  In his statement which was echoed by Associate Justice Kabineh Ja’neh, he said, “Liberia is like a bird in their hands, and its survivability is left with how they would protect it.“If they chose to squeeze it to death, it is left with them, but if they want it to live, they would release it to fly from their hands.”Surprisingly, when  it was time for  Speaker Alex Tyler to speak, he said, ”You have succinctly delineated recurring views from the field and proposals that find consensus among citizens across the length and breadth of the land, including the 73 electoral districts throughout the 15 counties present.”He added: “Without getting into the core substance of the discussion, which we shall later, I do like to sound out this caveat: we cannot and will not get all we are asking for in every instance. We must learn to give and take.”Providing clarity on his statement, the Bomi County lawyer said, “For instance take my own county, Bomi, which happens to be first on the list. The very first (proposal) suggests that a presidential candidate should hold a Master’s degree.“This proposal poses a serious problem to a citizen’s fundamental right to vote or to be voted for. This is committing an otherwise heinous crime for which she/he is prohibited from standing,” he stated.“By all conventions and protocols advanced by the United Nations (UN) enshrined in international law, the right of a mature citizen to canvass and be elected to an office within his own state is sacrosanct and inviolate and any attempt to rescind or restrict that right would be  ultra-virus,” he maintained.According to him, it would be beyond the scope or in excess of legal power or authority. “Let us think about that one,” Speaker Tyler appealed. Speaker Tyler queried, “Do you honestly want an elected Chief Justice for four years, who would be subject to the political currents, social pressures and economic machinations of the day?”  Recommendations from the conference will be sent to the National Legislature for concurrence by both Houses, which would automatically make it fit for a referendum to be conducted by the National Elections Commission (NEC).Among the recommendations are reduction in the terms of office of the president and members of the national legislature. The Traditional head is pushing for the lawmakers not to reject any of the recommendations.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Constable chopped by irate vendor

first_imgA Constable attached to the City Constabulary was admitted to the Georgetown Public Hospital, nursing a wound to his head after he was chopped by an irate vendor along Water Street, Georgetown.Injured is 38-year-old Satish Boodhoo.Based on reports received, the vendor reportedly stepped on Boodhoo’s feet and the Constable demanded an apology, but the vendor became abusive.The vendor continued to verbally abuse the Constable, who cautioned that if he continued, he could be arrested and charged. By this time, other vendors flocked the Constable and a heated argument ensued as they attempted to defend their colleague.However, the argument continued and as Boodhoo attempted to arrest the vendor, he whipped out a sharp object and dealt him one blow to the head. The Constable fell unconscious to the roadway.His colleagues, also on foot patrol, rushed to his assistance and arrived just in time as the irate vendor was attempting to disarm him. Upon their arrival, the suspect fled the scene. The injured Constable was picked up and taken to the Hospital where he was admitted.Guyana Times understands that the now injured Constable and three of his colleagues were on patrol in the area. The other Constables were reportedly a short distance away when Boodhoo was attacked and injured, and upon hearing the commotion, they turned around and responded before the matter could have gotten worse. The incident was reported to the Police and an investigation has been launched.last_img read more
