We want to turn Uppal Stadium into Sunrisers fortress: Warner

first_imgThere is no bigger advantage like playing at home and thats precisely the reason why Sunrisers captain David Warner wants his team to turn the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Uppal into a virtual fortress. “These (Hyderabad) are different conditions. The thing here is that we are trying to turn this ground into our fortress. Every team tries to win as many games at home as they can,” said Warner, who enthralled one and all with his 59-ball-126 against Kolkata Knight Riders. “Whether you win or loss the toss, you have to have a positive mindset and tell the guys to play freely. I expect my guys to go out there and give their 100 percent,” said Warner. The defending champions are in firm contention to seal a berth for the play-offs. “We never take anything for granted. You dont be complacent. Its all about momentum in this game. You got to keep winning. Keep playing every game to win as we always do and try to get up in the position. We know the finals going to be played here. “The teams are going to be thinking of how they are going to beat us at our home venue if we manage to make the final. That’s an added bonus for us. So we try to make our way up to the top two and give yourself the added bonus of making it to the final. We just got to wait and see how it pans out,” he said. On his own knock, Warner said,”Its always pleasing to go out there and score runs. Its also great that I went out there and had a clear gameplan. Sometimes against quality bowling opposition where there is a lot of pace, its easy.”On Sunrisers batting strategy, Warners advice to his teams batsmen is to commit to their shots. They did exactly that during the KKR match. “For us as a batting unit, we already said to the guys to commit to your shots. Because, we have seen that while they were bowling they (KKR) were getting a lot of wickets because of cross-batted shots. I gave a chance too early on.” Warner appreciated his teammates Shikhar Dhawan and Kane Williamson for playing the supporting role to perfection.”Our gameplan was to keep going with one guy batting all way through. I have to complement the way Shikhar played. I played that role in the last game and he played a good innings here. He got me on strike often and hit the balls which needed to be hit. Obviously Kane came in and played a fantastic knock at the end. He is in good form and is really finishing off very well,” he said.advertisementlast_img read more

Kings Take Down Rangers, 4-3

first_imgTweetPinShare0 Shares LOS ANGELES — Anze Kopitar went to the net, shrugged off New York’s defense and tipped home a dramatic goal for the Los Angeles Kings. And then he did it again in overtime.With two major scores from their big man in the middle, the Kings got closer to a division title with a victory that left the Rangers fuming.Kopitar got the tying goal with 4:10 to play and redirected the winner at 1:34 of overtime, propelling Los Angeles to a 4-3 victory March 17.After tipping home a shot by Milan Lucic to force OT, Kopitar deflected a slap shot by Jake Muzzin to end it for the Pacific Division-leading Kings, who rallied from a two-goal deficit for their third straight win over a probable playoff team.“It was pretty much like a playoff game,” Kopitar said. “Lots of checking, and not a lot of room out there. … We knew it was going to be a tough game, and to come back in the third like we did, it shows the character we have in this room. It’s a nice little boost for our hockey club.”Los Angeles won after trailing to start the third period for the NHL-best eighth time this season, claiming its league-leading 13th overtime or shootout victory of the year.Dustin Brown had a goal and an assist, and Jeff Carter had three assists as the Kings pulled six points ahead of the Anaheim Ducks in their quest for just their second division banner in franchise history.Kopitar got his first multi-goal game since his hat trick against the Rangers last month, but the tying goal survived a coach’s challenge from Alain Vigneault, who thought the Kings interfered with Henrik Lundqvist.New York’s star goalie was furious.“I’m so frustrated right now, I don’t even know where to begin,” Lundqvist said. “I think we’ve just got to play by the rules. The rule is you can’t have a guy in the crease. I can’t come out to play the shot. As a goalie, when you try to make a save and you have a forward motion and he doesn’t make any effort to get out. I can’t believe the ref, after watching it, didn’t get it right. That means that you can pretty much put a guy in the crease and as long as the goalie doesn’t get run over, it’s a good goal.”Kyle Clifford scored in the third and Jonathan Quick stopped 23 shots for Los Angeles, which returned from impressive road victories over Chicago and Dallas with a gutsy late effort.“We just kept our foot on the gas pedal,” said Brown, who has his first three-game goal streak in three years. “We had a lot of good looks and a lot of scrums around the net, and finally found a way to get them in. They were in a back-to-back, so we put a lot of pressure on them and wore them down throughout the game.”J.T. Miller had a goal and an assist for the Rangers, who haven’t won back-to-back games in March. Dan Boyle and Kevin Hayes also scored for the Rangers, and Lundqvist made 33 saves in his fourth consecutive loss in a winless March.After Hayes put New York up 3-1 early in the third, Clifford got his second goal in 45 games just two minutes later.Tyler Toffoli and Kopitar were both dangerously close to Lundqvist on the tying goal, but officials declined to reverse the call on the ice.“I agree with my goaltender,” Vigneault said. “At the end of the day, though, it doesn’t really matter what he thinks or what I think. If we ask about it, they’re going to have a great explanation as to why it was a goal, and we’ve just got to deal with it and move on.”(GREG BEACHAM, AP Hockey Writer)last_img read more

World Cup 2019: Pakistan eye comeback against fired-up England

first_imgAfter being blasted apart by West Indies in their opening game, Pakistan will look to make amends, especially in their batting, and aim for a comeback when they take on hot-favorites England in their second World Cup fixture at Trent Bridge, Nottingham on Monday.Playing against Windies, Pakistan was not just able to deal with the short balls, with Andre Russell and Oshane Thomas both having them hopping around, but they managed to score only 103 runs and seemed to be in all sorts of trouble. None of their batsmen showed temperament and the ability to handle the short-pitch deliveries, and even rash shots by some of their batsmen didn’t help Pakistan’s cause.There is a good chance that a number of short balls at a very decent pace will be heading their way as England have the likes of Mark Wood, Jofra Archer and Liam Plunkett in their pace battery.The only silver lining for Pakistan was in the form of Mohammad Amir, who bowled superbly against the likes of Chris Gayle and Shai Hope and picked up all the three wickets.England, on the other hand, seems to have all their bases covered. Their batting clicked against South Africa with Jason Roy, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan, and Ben Stokes all scoring half-centuries and making sure they went past the 300-run mark against South Africa.Their bowling has also been bolstered with the inclusion of Archer who bowled with sheer pace and gave a hard time to the Proteas batsmen at the Kennington Oval.advertisementEngland would definitely be the more confident side going into the match and would want to replicate the performance they came out with against Pakistan during the five-match ODI series where Sarfaraz Ahmad’s men were whitewashed before the World Cup.Squads:England: Eoin Morgan (c), Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler (wk), Tom Curran, Liam Dawson, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, James Vince, Chris Woakes, Mark WoodPakistan: Sarfaraz Ahmed (c, wk), Asif Ali, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi, Mohammad Amir, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Mohammad Hasnain, Imam-ul-Haq, Shadab Khan, Shoaib Malik, Wahab Riaz, Haris Sohail, Imad Wasim, Fakhar ZamanAlso Read | Rest of the world: Sunil Gavaskar trolls England over non-English playersAlso Read | Still not convinced how England can handle home pressure: Vivian RichardsAlso Seelast_img read more

He made the same move last summer and recovered some of his old form to win a valuable pot at Punchestown. Rogue Angel ran second at Kilbeggan on his first start for Elliott and I can see why he’s fancied to go one better at Listowel today.But, at 12-1, I’d much rather take his stablemate Timiyan (4.20), who got up to win the Kilbeggan race by a head. This seven-year-old was trying three miles for the first time that day and was understandably switched off at the back by Mark Walsh but he moved past his rivals at will in the style of a horse who belonged in a higher grade.This time, Elliott reaches for a promising young claimer in Darragh O’Keeffe and of course that might backfire, but the last three Kerry Nationals have also been won by inexperienced riders. Soft ground is more of a concern but I feel the risk of him not coping is built into the odds with more to spare. He’s a progressive Gordon Elliott youngster at the foot of the weights and that’s an attractive profile for any major handicap chase in Ireland.Heavy going at Carlisle is going to be a factor all afternoon. I wonder if it might help the in-form Michael Dods to get a double.His Mustaqbal (2.00) hasn’t had a surface like this since beating 15 rivals at Haydock in April and he’s only 2lb higher this time. He also won on soft at Ayr last autumn and turned in the second-best performance of his career (judged by Racing Post Ratings) when second over this course and distance a couple of years ago. He’s 7-2 against a favourite, Im Dapper Too, whose stable hasn’t had a winner since June.Later, Dods fields a 20-1 shot in Le Chat D’Or (4.50), who is certainly getting on a bit at the age of 10 but has managed to win in each of the last two years. He’ll be better for a recent spin here, his first run for four months, and now gets a testing surface for the first time this year. He’s back down to a rating of 83 for the first time since he scored at Ayr last summer. Share on Pinterest Was this helpful?

Students of Tavares Gardens Primary Benefit from Career Day

first_imgThe Tavares Gardens Primary School in Kingston held its annual career day on May 15, with hundreds of students benefiting from information and advice to help them make wise choices towards their future profession.The day included presentations from representatives of various agencies and institutions, including the Jamaica Information Service (JIS) on jobs in the media; Jamaican-German Automotive School (JAGAS) on mechanics and automotives; while teachers from the Haile Selassie High School spoke on cosmetology and welding. There was also a presentation on the arts and culture.Guidance Counsellor at the school, Layton Shawn, said he was enthused at the interest of the students. He told JIS News that the purpose of career day is to expose the children to various professions.“Over the years, I normally invite a doctor, police, soldier, etcetera, to speak to them; but I realize there are more professions than these traditional ones. So this year, I invited a cosmetologist, and I’m exposing them to the performing arts area, as well as media,” he informed.Mr. Shaw said the method usually employed is to divide the students into groups based on their interests, “because they gain more that way. At the end of the day, everyone leaves and feels that they have learnt something.”Public Relations Officer at the JIS, Rodger Hutchinson, who spoke on careers in the media, stressed the importance of the students having a full grasp of the English Language.“You need English. It is very important and is one of your key subjects. It is important that you learn to read in English, write in English, and think in English,” he stated.He also took them through the process of writing a print story, and making a television presentation.The students and teachers were interested in finding out more about the JIS, including its roles and functions, as well as a bit of its history.“We at JIS are like your teachers. We provide you with information. We promote the Government’s policies and programmes,” Mr. Hutchinson told them.CONTACT: CHRISTINE ADE-GOLDlast_img read more

Thailands parliament votes in proarmy house speaker

first_imgBangkok: A military-aligned candidate won majority support to become Thailand’s house speaker on Saturday, signalling further dominance of the army in the next government, five years after it staged a coup. Former Prime Minister Chuan Leekpai, 80, was named speaker after the House of Representatives voted 258-235 in his favour in the first working session of the lower chamber. Chuan came up against another candidate who was backed by more liberal parties. Also Read – ‘Hong Kong won’t rule out Chinese help over protests’The pro-military Palang Pracharath Party, which nominated Chuan, is tipped to lead the new government expected to be formed in the next few weeks and headed by the junta leader, Prayuth Chan-ocha, who staged the coup and has served as prime minister since then. The vote for prime minister is jointly taken by the 500-member House and the 250-member Senate, where Prayuth already has the solid support because he helped appoint the lawmakers for the upper chamber. Also Read – Pak Army chief accompanies Imran at key meetings in ChinaThanathorn Juangroongruangkit, leader of the anti-military Future Forward Party, was earlier ordered out of the Saturday session after a court suspended him for allegedly breaking election rules. He spoke briefly to acknowledge his expulsion but his attempt to address the assembly drew loud and vehement protests from pro-military lawmakers. Thanathorn pressed on before leaving to a sustained standing ovation from his party members. The applause continued despite the acting speaker telling them to stop. “Enough,” said Acting House Speaker Chai Chidchob. “This isn’t a theatre. Stop.” The suspension of Thanathorn was widely seen as a further move to weaken anti-military opposition. The newly formed Future Forward party came from nowhere to become the third largest in the lower house. Its progressive agenda, which includes ending conscription and curbing the military’s role in politics, has rattled Thailand’s traditional ruling elite. In the coming weeks, the Constitutional Court is expected to decide whether to turn Thanathorn’s suspension into a disqualification. The court, like the army, is widely seen as being close to the country’s conservative power brokers.last_img read more

Disney Legends honour prompts Robert Downey Jr pot story

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Robert Downey Jr. says he had a wild Disneyland ride in his younger days.The “Iron Man” and “Avengers: Endgame” star, among those honoured Friday as Disney Legends, said his first visit to the Southern California resort included a brief detention for “smoking pot in a gondola.”“I was brought to a surprisingly friendly processing centre, given a stern warning and returned to, if memory serves, one very disappointed group chaperone,” Downey said.He turned serious when he spoke about the Marvel movies.“I get to remain a fan of the first inclusive and evolving cinematic universe ever so far,” said Downey, whose character meets a dark fate in “Avengers: Endgame.”Disney CEO Robert Iger presented the Legends trophy to the actor at the D23 Expo Disney fan event. The company said it honours those who have made remarkable contributions to the Disney legacy.Singer Christina Aguilera, actress Ming-Na Wen, journalists Diane Sawyer and Robin Roberts and directors Jon Favreau and Kenny Ortega were among others receiving trophies.Aguilera, who performed “Reflection” from the Disney movie “Mulan,” called it “way cooler than a Grammy.”Wen thanked her mother for giving her the courage to live “this American dream.”The actress voiced the role of Mulan and is joining the cast of the upcoming Disney Plus streaming service’s “The Mandalorian.”Lynn Elber, The Associated Press read more

US methane regulation reversal widens its competitive advantage says CAPP CEO

CALGARY — The group representing Canada’s oil and gas industry says a U.S. proposal to ease regulations aimed at cutting methane emissions will create another competitive advantage for American producers.The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says it is following President Donald Trump’s directive to remove regulatory burdens on the oil and gas sector by considering rescinding many of its requirements to monitor and plug methane leaks.In 2016, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and then-U.S. president Barack Obama jointly agreed to chop methane emissions in Canada and the U.S. by more than 40 per cent from 2012 levels by 2025 by cracking down on the oil and gas sector.Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers CEO Tim McMillan says the industry can meet that target but Ottawa’s proposed regulations expected to kick in next year are an inefficient solution to the problem and duplicate provincial government programs.He says the EPA move adds to U.S. advantages over Canada including its corporate tax reductions, better pipeline approval system and more efficient regulatory systems.Dale Marshall, national climate change manager for Environmental Defence, however, says Canada should go forward on its own to prevent oil and gas methane leaks because it is one of the cheapest and easiest ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. He added federal regulation ensures all of Canada is following the same rules.“Prime Minister Trudeau and president Obama on many fronts in the last days of the Obama presidency made common commitments and we see over and over again the U.S. stepping away from those commitments and Canada forging ahead,” said McMillan.“If Canada’s going to go it alone on carbon pricing, on Arctic drilling moratoriums, on methane regulations, we have to do it efficiently.” The Canadian Press read more

As tsunami relief effort moves into third week UN operation gathers momentum

“On a scale of 1 to 10, on the relief operation, we’re probably at about 7.5 to 8 across the board,” the Director of the Coordination and Response Division of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), Kevin M. Kennedy, told a news briefing in New York as the crisis entered its third week.He said the Indonesian provinces of Aceh and Sumatra, the worst-ravaged area of the dozen nations struck by the tsunami on 26 December, accounting for more than two thirds of the deaths, remain the “focus of effort, the centre of gravity,” with logistics remaining a major challenge due to the broken infrastructure.”I can’t tell you that we’ve actually reached every spot but we’re closing in, if you will, on the spots we’ve not reached before, particularly on the western coast of Sumatra, with great help from the foreign militaries and utilizing their helicopters,” he added. The coast road is being reopened and this will greatly assist relief efforts, he noted.Earlier today the UN opened a joint Disaster Management Centre (DMC) set up with the Indonesian Government in Jakarta, the capital, calling it “crucial for earmarking available resources” and for ensuring that the Government and UN “are working with the same baseline data on the affected people – who they are and what their needs are.”Throughout the whole Indian Ocean region, from Indonesia in the east to Somalia in the west, the tsunami injured more than a half million people and left up to 5 million lacking basic services, with hundreds of thousands at risk of deadly epidemics due to lack of clean drinking water, medicines and sanitation.The UN World Health Organization (WHO) said there had so far been no reports of epidemic outbreaks of diarrhoeal diseases such a cholera and typhoid fever, a major fear in such disasters, but it added that access to safe water and sanitation “remain of critical concern.”In Sri Lanka, where 1 million people have been affected, WHO has provided supplies to help reduce the risk of disease, including water purification tablets, testing kits, and materials to eradicate mosquitoes and reduce the number of flies, especially at relief camps with poor sanitation.In Indonesia, OCHA reported some cases of diarrhoea, respiratory and skin diseases and noted that many people are suffering from mental trauma. Hospitals are overwhelmed with the injured and sick, it added.Starting tomorrow, WHO with other UN agencies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) will launch a major six-day health assessment of all affected areas in Sumatra with the help of the United States and other militaries, focusing on immediate health needs as well as on water and sanitation, Mr. Kennedy said.Meanwhile, Secretary-General Kofi Annan continued his tour of the region after launching a nearly $1 billion UN flash appeal, the largest ever for a natural disaster, in Jakarta last week. Over the weekend he visited Sri Lanka and yesterday began a two-day visit to The Maldives.”I think the first test will come on the 11th (tomorrow) in Geneva, where we are having a pledging conference,” Mr. Annan told a news conference in the Sri Lankan capital of Colombo when asked if he was confident that pledges of international aid, now estimated at up to $4 billion, would be translated into disbursements. The conference, to be attended by ministers from at least 30 donor and affected countries, will determine priority needs for the next six months as the flash appeal is already covered by pledges.”I am hopeful, that the billion dollars that we have asked for, we will receive on the 11th,” Mr. Annan said. “And of course as I said, we are in this for the longer term and we would hope to be able to keep the donors also engaged for that period. I know there is concern that once the crisis dies down and the cameras go away, the world may forget. It is our responsibility to constantly remind them that the work, the job is not done.”Mr. Kennedy said the accounting firm of PricewaterhouseCoopers had offered its services to the UN free of charge to help improve tracking the aid and assist in any credible allegations of fraud, waste or abuse that might arise.For its part the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) called for immediate measures to protect children in the tsunami zone from exploitation, abuse, and criminal trafficking, warning that “those who would prey upon children in this chaotic environment are already at work.”In New York today UNICEF Executive Director Carol Bellamy and former US President Bill Clinton launched a fund to bring safe drinking water and sanitation systems to children and families affected by the tsunami. “I applaud President Clinton for this extraordinary philanthropic leadership,” Ms. Bellamy told a news conference at UNICEF House.Mr. Clinton hailed “this opportunity to expand the work of my foundation with UNICEF, which has a great record of response to humanitarian crises, especially in the provision of care to children.” read more

UN refines Ebola response amid efforts to bring outbreak under control by

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 20 per cent of new Ebola infections occur during burials of diseased Ebola patients when family and community members perform religious rites that require directly touching or washing the highly infectious body.“By building trust and respect between burial teams, bereaved families and religious groups, we are building trust and safety in the response itself,” Dr. Pierre Formenty, one of WHO’s leading Ebola experts, said in a press release. The new protocol was developed by an interdisciplinary WHO team in tandem with faith-based organizations and encourages the inclusion of family and local clergy in the planning and preparation of the burial, as well as the burial itself. It falls in line with a UN-wide directive aimed at managing and treating 70 per cent of Ebola cases and making safe 70 per cent of burials by 1 December. In addition, the protocol provides sensitivity guidelines for when Ebola burial teams first meet victims’ families, including abstaining from wearing personal protective equipment and asking the family if there are specific requests for managing the burial and personal effects of the deceased. “Introducing components such as inviting the family to be involved in digging the grave and offering options for dry ablution and shrouding will make a significant difference in curbing Ebola transmission,” Dr. Formenty continued. Meanwhile, in a press briefing from Geneva, the UN children’s agency (UNICEF), stated that its “massive” Ebola operation in the most-affected countries of Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Guinea, would see a doubling of supplies for frontline health workers, including a newly developed coverall impermeable to the Ebola virus. Based on the agency’s planned scale-up, UNICEF would need at least 1 million of the new coveralls by 1 December, in addition to supplies of other protective gear, chlorine and essential medicines. Moreover, the agency said, the number of UNICEF staff on the ground would double from 300 to 600, with a particular focus on being with the communities to support social mobilization and to help service delivery. “This is the most complex emergency to which we have ever had to respond, and it has required agility in the provision of products, supply chains and service delivery,” said Shanelle Hall, Director of UNICEF’s global supply and logistics operations. “Supply chains have had to be flexible, and meet extremely high standards of quality,” she continued. “UNICEF is working with governments, industry and partners to establish whole new supply chains so that we are able to deliver dozens of new products to new service delivery locations.” The UN’s refined efforts aimed at controlling the Ebola outbreak will be dealt a substantial assist when an experimental vaccine, currently undergoing laboratory testing, is issued to the affected West African nations. The vaccine could be dispatched as early as January 2015. read more

Nonprofit leadership program sees first graduates

Brock University’s Goodman School of Business saw 26 community members graduate from the inaugural Non-Profit Leadership Certificate program this week.The program is run through Goodman’s Centre for Innovation, Management and Enterprise Education (CIMEE) which provides public and customized business seminars for Niagara professionals.Tailored to fit a leadership development gap in the non-profit sector, the program provides community members with the tools and information they need to successfully lead teams and organizations.“We had previously developed programming for municipal and corporate leaders and knew that we could build on the success of these programs to provide a valuable service for the many non-profit organizations that do such great work in Niagara,” said Goodman Interim Dean Barry Wright.Running over eight weeks, the program is made up of eight evening courses and includes a range of topics such as Finance for the Non-Profit Sector and Change Management.“A unique attraction of this program is the bespoke nature of the content. We asked over 600 non-profit contacts to tell us their professional development needs when designing the program,” said CIMEE manager Abdul Rahimi.Business professionals from Alzheimer Society of Niagara Region, Community Addiction Services of Niagara, Community Living Fort Erie, Community Living Grimsby, Heartland Forest, New Hope Church, Niagara Sustainability Initiative, Project Share, Red Roof Retreat, United Way Niagara, Wellspring Niagara Cancer Support Foundation, Lincoln & West Lincoln, and YWCA Niagara participated.For Lisa Panetta, CEO of Community Addiction Services of Niagara, the program provided a forum where she could discuss ideas and benefit from mentorship opportunities.“Leaders in non-profit don’t necessarily have entire finance or human resource departments so they often have to excel in several areas at once,” said Panetta.“Leadership development is a big need in Niagara. The program was attractive to me since it had the credibility of being run by the Goodman School of Business. We had a wonderful group of participants and we generated great ideas and discussion,” she said.The next non-profit program will be held in Fall, 2017.Thx @GoodmanSchool! We were privileged to have stellar professors in a class surrounded by professionals who have a <3 for their community. https://t.co/D2uoeEnkJ4— United Way Niagara (@UWNiagara) December 7, 2016Community members from local non-profit organizations received their certificates from CIMEE Dec. 7 read more

New 814K wheel dozer from Caterpillar offers greater efficiency and data insight

first_imgThe new Cat® 814K wheel dozer from Caterpillar features a new, sound-suppressed cab, efficient power unit and transmission drive, and centralised service station configuration to drive machine uptime and operator productivity to new levels. With its rugged structure designed to achieve multiple life cycles under the toughest operating conditions, the 814K delivers high production operation in applications like utility work at mines, heavy civil construction backfilling and grading work, and ground preparation and subbase work on airport and commercial projects.The wheel dozer’s upgraded cab design makes the operator’s workspace more comfortable and provides for more efficient machine operation. Isolation cab mounting plus seat air-suspension safeguard against machine vibration feedback to the operator. The quiet cabin reduces operating noise levels to just 71 dB, compared to 78 dB of its predecessor, with a sound-suppression package option to lower sound levels to 70 dB.Cab entry/exit is greatly facilitated through integration of the new fold-up STIC™ (Steering and Transmission Integrated Control System) armrest. STIC delivers maximum machine responsiveness and control plus smoother, faster cycles, while minimising operator movement to reduce fatigue. Simple side-to-side movements turn the machine to the left or right, and gear selection control is operated through a finger-controlled rocker switch. Removal of the steering wheel console vastly increases operator space and improves forward visibility of the work area.Today’s 814K wheel dozer offers a newly upgraded touch screen information display for intuitive machine control. The new panel displays critical machine operating data such as system temperatures, fuel use and machine hours. The dozer’s new Vital Information Management System (VIMS™) allows technicians to connect directly to the machine to access a wide range of sensor information and expanded machine data. This allows managers to create productivity reports, identify operator training opportunities, see data logging of machine parameters and diagnostic codes, and monitor machine health. Cat Product Link™ offers remote access of machine operating data through the easy-to-use VisionLink® interface to facilitate fleet management.The new 814K is powered by the Cat C7.1 ACERT™ engine meeting U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final and EU Stage IV emission standards, or Brazil MAR-1 emission standards equivalent to Tier 3 and Stage IIIA to meet global emissions standards. Featuring Engine Idle Shutdown and Auto Idle Kickdown to avoid unnecessary idling, the new field-proven engine boasts lower fuel consumption than with previous models. Load Sense Control Hydraulics provide on-demand hydraulic flow required by the implement and steering system to further improve fuel efficiency and deliver increased rimpull.Offering four forward and reverse speeds to match application demands, the wheel dozer boasts the best-in-class Cat planetary powershift transmission, designed specifically for the most demanding mining applications. Through the Cat-exclusive Advanced Productivity Electronic Control Strategy (APECS), the new 814K delivers consistent and smooth shifting, even when under load. APECS results in no loss of momentum on slopes during gear shifts, so the dozer climbs grades more efficiently and with less fuel burn.Two Cat blade design options offer rugged durability and excellent dozing and rolling characteristics. The 2.84-m3 (3.72-yd3) straight blade delivers high production dozing on stockpile material and general earthmoving projects. Alternatively, the 10.5 m3 (13.8 yd3) coal blade provides precise and productive dozing, while helping to retain load control with increased capacity for lighter materials.The new 814K wheel dozer includes a host of features that reduce service time to maximize machine uptime. The machine’s new centralize ground-level service area provides quick access to the master disconnect switch with integrated lock-out/tag-out, DEF purge lamp for Tier 4 Final/Stage IV engines, circuit breakers, emergency fuel shutoff switch and jump start receptacle. Grouping of grease points for steering, hitch and rear axle trunnions along with easily visible fluid sight gauges reduce time spent on daily maintenance requirements.By providing the operator with real-time operating data, VIMS system notifications alert operators and technicians of machine issues, so they can be quickly addressed before experiencing a significant downtime event. The machine’s new high efficiency hydraulic filtration results in cleaner hydraulic oil to increase component life and extends the oil inspection requirement by 50 percent, from 2,000 to 4,000 hours. Railings, ladders and non-slip surfaces for platform level access points help to enhance technician safety when working on the engine and cooling system.The new Cat 814K wheel dozer is currently available for worldwide orders. The first machine shipments are planned for June 2018.last_img read more

College student finishes final exam from hospital bed while in labor

first_imgKANSAS CITY, Mo. (WSVN) — A college student says she wanted to finish her final exams on time, even if it meant doing so while in labor.Nayzia Thomas is a sophomore attending Johnson County Community College in Kansas City, Missouri. When she went into labor slightly ahead of her due date, Thomas said she still wanted to finish her final exams if she could help it.“It wasn’t due until the end of the week,” Thomas told Yahoo! Lifestyle. “But my goal was to try to have everything done before. [I thought] before all this gets crazy, let me hurry up and finish this final.”Rather than putting off the last exam and getting an “incomplete” grade, Thomas was determined to finish the assignment from her hospital bed.Her mother snapped a photo of her in the hospital room, showing her laptop in front of her and textbook by her side. my mom took this pic & it’s the perfect explanation of my life. yes i’m about to have a baby, but final SZN ain’t over yet 🤓📚 pic.twitter.com/7LyrDBE9iN— nayzia’ (@naydxll) December 12, 2017 update: on 12/12/17 we had a healthy baby boy.

The 1962 lessons

first_img50 years after the 1962 Sino-Indian war, in 2012, when much was written and commented in Indian media and some Chinese declassified records became available, United Services Institution of India (USI) took on the task of researching this war, juxtaposing the Chinese and Indian records.A team of officers with a flair for military history, headed by Lt Gen Vinay Shankar (retd), attempted to as he states, “clinically and objectively”, chronicles’ the battles and encounters of the 1962 war, based on an official version of the Chinese government and the synthesis of all that has been reported and written in India and abroad and also the leaked portions of the report of a study by Lt Gen TB Henderson Brooks and Brig (later Lt Gen) P S Bhagat, VC. Also Read – World War I’s forgotten violent aftermath and toxic legacyThe eight chapters of the book are: 1. The Politico-Diplomatic Prelude (1947-62), 2. The Military Campaign, covering Ladakh, the Western Sector  and Kameng, Lohit, Subansiri and Siang Frontier Divisions, the Eastern Sector, 3. The Chinese Air Threat, 4. Public Opinion in the Build-Up to the War, 5. Indian Military Thought: 1947-62, 6. Epilogue, 7. A Road Map to Closure and 8. Tailpiece, which contains some personal reminiscences of the war based on first-hand experiences. It includes two narratives of the prisoners of the Chinese war. These also reflect the trauma of being vanquished in the war.  Also Read – Enid Blyton’s adventures get even more mouth-wateringOf the many battles fought between Indian Army and China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA), during the Sino-Indian war of 1962, two battles-of Walong and Rezang La (la means a mountain pass) – both were fought by battalions of the Kumaon Regiment – merit is mentioned here because both the Kumaonis fought to the last man, last bullet.While such great valour must be highlighted in motivational lectures, in this case, it, unfortunately, reflects very poorly on the government of that day. Because not only was the Indian Army pitched into this war under-clad, under-armed, under-equipped and ill-prepared by the then main political players, Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and Defence Minister V K Krishna Menon, but they also (a) failed to appreciate the  situation the Chinese threat/intentions, (b) refused to heed the warnings about Chinese movements conveyed to them by senior field commanders, (c) interfered in the military chain of command (d) interfered in tactical decisions and (e) stupidly and stubbornly ordered the Army to undertake tasks for which, apart from deficiencies mentioned, the Army simply did not have the numerical strength of troops. On 12 October, 1962, at Palam Airport before departing on a visit to Colombo, Nehru  insouciantly revealed to the media that he had ordered the Indian Army “to throw the Chinese out”.Referring to the part of Henderson Brooks-Bhagat report, which was leaked out in 2014 by Australian journalist Neville Maxwell, Arun Jaitley had stated: “What has been made public is part-I of the report. It has already been reported in the media but pages 112 to 167 are still not known. Is it because these pages contain some material which can be embarrassing to those in power in 1962? The first 111 pages have been made public, rather than allowing public opinion be influenced by unauthentic sources, it is now necessary to make the balance pages public. The contents of the report also raise some legitimate questions. The military strategy of the then government has been seriously questioned. The intelligence assessment of the Chinese attitude was a flawed one. The military strategy in creating “forward posts” has been criticised as providing to the Chinese a pretext for invasion. It further appears from the report that the prime minister and his favourite set of officials both in the Army and in the Intelligence establishment were flawed in their assessment. In fact, the opinion of these officials close to the prime minister had cost this country heavily. The unpreparedness of the Armed forces is writ large in the contents of the report. Was a Himalayan blunder of 1962, in fact, a Nehruvian blunder? The leaked contents of the report serve as a lesson for us today. How prepared are we in our military strategy? Contemporary evidence indicates that our defence procurement has suffered. This adversely hurts our armed forces who are professional amongst the best in the world. Are we willing to learn lessons from 1962?”. However, soon after the BJP came to power and Jaitley became the defence minister he stressed that the Henderson-Brooks report “is a top-secret document and has not been declassified so far. The release of this report, fully or partially, or disclosure of any information related to this report, would not be in national interest”.Recollections by survivors of the 1962 battles make veteran’s blood boil. It is because these recollections rub in the fact of how clueless and callous leaders like Nehru and Krishna Menon were and how their impractical orders were followed by Indian officers and soldiers with utmost bravery, often knowing that they would not survive. As Major General Ian Cardozo (retd) recounts in Param Vir Chakra: Our Heroes in Battle: “Every single man of this company was found dead in his trench with several bullet or splinter wounds. The two-inch mortar man died with a bomb still in his hand. The medical orderly had a syringe and a bandage in his hand when a Chinese bullet killed him. A dozen bodies of Ahirs (this was an all Ahir battalion of the Kumaon Regiment-all plainsmen unlike the Kumaonis) were found outside their trenches indicating that they had in turn attacked the attacking Chinese when they were killed.”  Of the 1,000 mortar bombs with them, 993 had been fired. The mortar detachment personnel were readying to fire the other seven when they were killed. The end of this war saw Nehru, who had for long deceived the Parliament and the nation, a “broken man”. Too little, too late, he had to sack Krishna Menon. This book is an important trail-brazing reference base for further research by China watchers and a must read for all government leaders and officials dealing with national security.last_img read more
