first_imgThe Supreme Court on Monday asked the West Bengal State Election Commission (WBSEC) as to whether it conducted any probe into the fact that a large number of seats in the local body elections in the State went uncontested. Out of a total 58,692 posts for gram panchayat village, zilla parishad and panchayat samiti, 20,159 had remained uncontested in the violence-marred local polls held in May this year. A Bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A.M. Khanwilkar and D.Y. Chandrachud told the State poll panel that the issue of huge number of uncontested seats has been bothering it. It asked the poll panel as to whether any inquiry was conducted in this regard. “It is your (poll panel) constitutional duty to conduct free and fair elections,” it said. Senior advocate Amrendra Sharan, appearing for the poll panel, said that 33% of nearly 50,000 panchayat seats going uncontested in the State was not “an alarming situation”. He cited U.P. where almost 57% panchayat seats went uncontested and the figure was 51%, 67% and 27.6% in Haryana, Sikkim and Andhra Pradesh respectively. The hearing would continue on Tuesday.last_img read more

first_imgNew Delhi, Jun 5 (PTI) Fighting for an Olympic ticket on the unfamiliar legal turf, Sushil Kumars glorious wrestling career may meet an unceremonious end when the Delhi High Court pronounces its verdict tomorrow on who gets to board the flight to Rio between him and Narsingh Yadav. An unfavourable verdict for Sushil may not be the end on the legal front as he can still challenge the ruling in the Supreme Court. But it could well signal the end of the road for perhaps the greatest Indian Olympian, who won two back-to-back medals. With less than two months left for the Olympics, starting August 5, future look bleak for the unassuming grappler from Haryana whose injuries played a part in the entire sequence of events leading upto tomorrow. The Delhi High Court, in its last hearing on Thursday, gave clear indications that it was likely to give a judgement in favour of the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) in the tiff over selection trials in the mens 74kg freestyle category. The Delhi High court had observed that it did not find “any statutory mandate” to hold trials before the Olympics. “Problem is that the sports code is nowhere prescribing that trial is mandatory. It has given flexibility and autonomy to the organisation to decide (mode of selection). I do not find the statutory mandate which you are trying to read into it,” Justice Manmohan had said during the final hearing. Narsingh had secured the Olympic quota place for India last year at the World Championship in Las Vegas after winning a bronze medal. Since then the Maharashtra grappler has been staking his claim for the berth and the WFI had also been steadfast in its stand to send Narsingh to Rio since he had grabbed the quota. Going by norms in WFI guidelines, a quota belongs to the country and not to an individual wrestler, and former world champion Sushil pointed out that there should be a trial in 74kg category to decide who would go to Rio. The 33-year-old, who had won a bronze medal in 2008 Beijing Olympics and followed it up with a silver in 2012 London Games, had moved the court seeking directions to WFI to hold selection trials.

first_imgNICOSIA, Cyprus — A first-half penalty earned APOEL Nicosia an entertaining 1-1 draw against Ajax in Group F of the Champions League on Sept. 30th.Ajax opened the scoring in the 28th minute through Danish forward Lucas Andersen, only for APOEL’s Brazilian midfielder Gustavo Manduca to level from the penalty spot three minutes later.The draw extended Ajax’s winless away streak in the Champions League to eight games and gave the Cypriot team its first point in this season’s competition.Ajax lies third in the group with two points, trailing Barcelona with three and PSG with four.Ajax coach Frank De Boer said his team deserved the win and criticized referee Milorad Mazic for APOEL’s penalty award.“You come to 1-0 and then you get a cheap goal against you, so it was very disappointing for us,” De Boer said.“I told the players after the game that if we play like this against everybody, then everybody will have a difficult match against Ajax.”APOEL coach Giorgos Donis said: “There’s no justice in soccer, it’s just who scores more goals.”The former Panathinaikos player said APOEL employed long balls in attack to unsettle an Ajax side who he claimed has trouble with this style of play, with the Dutch team pressing high up the pitch and leaving space in its own half.“Even though it is not our usual style of play, we wanted to use long balls against them,” Donis said.Ajax got off to a strong start and created a series of early chances. Kolbeinn Sigthorsson nearly opened the scoring just two minutes in when he shot narrowly wide after connecting with Lasse Schone’s cross.Davy Klaassen missed a chance seven minutes later when he failed to latch on to Sigthorsson’s lofted pass across the APOEL goalmouth.Andersen finally broke the deadlock, slotting home the rebound after APOEL goalkeeper Urko Pardo had parried a close-range effort from Schone.However, Manduca soon equalized with the spotkick after Ajax defender Ricardo van Rhijn was judged to have handled inside the box when Stathis Aloneftis tried to lift the ball over him.The goal gave APOEL a lift and the hosts missed a clear chance to pull ahead two minutes before halftime when Cillian Sheridan came close to steering a Manduca cross into the Ajax net.Both teams created chances in the second half in the end-to-end action. Pardo saved Schone’s low shot in the 52nd, while Sheridan headed just wide moments later after meeting a cross from Aloneftis.A diving save by Ajax goalkeeper Jasper Ceillessen deniedSergio with a long-range effort in the 70th — that was followed by a speedy Ajax counterattack in which Sigthorsson shook off two APOEL defenders before volleying a shot straight at Pardo.In the end, APOEL was fortunate to escape with the draw after Serero’s shot from outside the box flew just wide of the post in injury time.TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

first_imgOur last one of the football season (probably). Hope you guys have enjoyed reading these as much as we’ve enjoyed putting them together.1. How many times would this game have to be played before OSU wins one in Norman? (eg: 1 out of 100)Porter: At some point Tyreek just wins a game single-handedly with a couple kick returns and a wheel route that impregnates the entire first row on the north side of Gaylord Memorial.Dave: History tells us that teams favored by 20 win approximately 93 percent of the time, so we’d have to play it 14 times to get a win. Let’s be optimistic and say 10.Shepherd: I’ll say eight because I just had coffee and I’m feeling uncharacteristically optimistic.Carson: I’ll use Dave’s math and double it because…it’s OSU in Bedlam. 28.Boone: one out of five.Southwell: 44 – 10 = 34. 34 times.Amilian: Rudolph starts to get comfortable after a few games and eventually pulls it off in Game 7.Nolo: I’m going with 15 assuming no more of our QBs get injured.2. If Gundy doesn’t start Rudolph what will your reaction be?Porter:Dave:Shepherd:Carson:Boone:Southwell:Amilian:Nolo:3. Describe Gundy’s Monday press conference in one word.Porter: Ack-your-itDave: Gundy.Shepherd: Odd.Carson: Childish.Boone: Awkward.Southwell: Annoying.Amilian: “Awesome”Nolo: Weird4. What is your favorite non-2011 Bedlam memory?Porter: 2004 was as much fun as I’ve ever had at an Oklahoma State football game. I know we lost but it was the apex of my fandom as a college student. I don’t know that I’ve ever cared more about a game before.Dave: Watching the 2001 game with my dad and my friends at my college apartment. My friends were celebrating after the Woods catch and my dad was pacing around preaching them about how “this isn’t over, guys”.Shepherd: The 38-28 game in ‘02. Watched in Norman with my Crimson-clad side of the family…one of the best days of my life.Carson: Sports are never as cool as when you’re a little kid. In 1997 OSU won Bedlam 30-7, R.W. McQuarters was a superhero and OSU had a number by its name (No. 25, unprecedented). My mind was blown.Boone: 2001 without a doubt.Southwell: 2001: My dad and I were heading to Stillwater to watch the basketball team play North Texas (well the 2001/2014 comparison is starting to look eerie).We listened to the football game on the radio and it we were freaking out. When the basketball game ended, they announced that the football team would be showing up in a few minutes (ended up being about an hour probably) and we waited. GIA went nuts when the football team walked in.That whole night was great.Amilian: I wish I had more options to choose from, but I’m going with 2001. That “Who Let the Sooners Out’ trash song was still playing around Oklahoma and it was nice to put an end to it.Nolo: I never watched a Bedlam football game until my freshman year at OSU which was the 2005 season. 2011 is literally the only positive Bedlam memory I have.5. Who is your favorite OU football player ever?Porter: AD — he was a joy to watch even though he lit Stillwater on fire.Dave: Landry JonesScreen Shot 2014-12-05 at 1.03.33 PMShepherd: DeMarco Murray. (But he’s never allowed to meet my future wife).Carson: Gerald McCoy. (He’s allowed to run for Governor).Boone: Probably Adrian Peterson. Incredibly fun to watch (except against us).Southwell: Ryan Broyles…the other 85. But seriously, that guy is awesome.Amilian: We couldn’t have gone with least favorite? (Would have been Nic Harris – Thanks for this Tebow). Favorite is Gabe IkardNolo: Sammy B. He was fun to watch in college and I heard nothing but good things about him off the field and in the classroom.6. What are you rooting for to happen in the Playoff this weekend?Porter: I want the top six to lose just to see what the committee does. Arizona would be the only semi-lock. I think it would end up being Bama, Arizona, Kansas State (!), and…Oregon.Dave: I’d like to see Florida State go down, just like every other decent American.Shepherd: I’d appreciate pure chaos. Will settle for FSU losing.Carson: The SEC somehow getting left out would be hilarious.Boone: Something crazy. Either A.) Alabama loss. B.) FSU loss or C.) BothSouthwell: Madness. I want to see Oregon vs. Baylor (uniforms!) and TCU vs. FSU. Two Big 12 teams and no SEC teams, with the opportunity to see the Big 12 Championship game as the National Championship game.How fast would they amend the system to incorporate 8 teams?Amilian: Undecided here. I love the idea of no SEC teams making the Playoff but on the other hand, I want to see them play a game or two against Oregon/TCU/Florida State. We’ll see how good they are. And if they win both games, they’re the best team in the country.Nolo: I want to see Holgerson make a “We beat Baylor head-to-head and therefore deserve to be in the playoff” argument on College Gameday.7. Everybody is talking up this basketball team (including me) — what is its fatal flaw (besides Ford coaching on the road in a Big 12 game)?Porter: Inside scoring. I just don’t see how we’re going to get points on the interior if Nash gets in foul/grade trouble.Shepherd: If it’s true Le’Bryan sat out Wednesday night because of grades….I’ll go with that. Can’t lose him for any amount of time.Dave: Who do we go to when we *really* need a basket? I am buying into the great-senior-year-story for Nash, but I don’t know if he is that guy or even wants to be.Carson: It’s not so much their flaw as their situation: Ridiculously stacked league with ridiculously good coaches. No gimme road wins.Boone: How we handle situations late in tight games in conference play.Southwell: I haven’t been able to watch them yet (yikes). Maybe the depth or the live-and-die by the three business.Amilian: Ford coaching at home in a Big 12 game. I’ve only watched a couple games and don’t feel like I know enough to pick a fatal flaw.Nolo: I’ll agree with Carson. The coaching and talent depth in the Big 12 is just brutal. Road wins will be tough to come by, even in Ft. Worth.8. Rutherford, Adkins, JamesOn, Forte, Peterson, James, and Keiton (all in their primes) have a shooting contest from the Eddie Sutton logo in GIA. If you pick the winner you get $10 million. If you pick the person who finishes last you lose your legs. Who do you pick?Porter: Adkins is the biggest wild card for me. He could literally make 55 in a row or not make a single one. I’m not picking him though because I like my legs. I’ll go with Rutherford. I trust his consistency more than anybody else from that range.Dave: I pick Forte and I don’t look back. This isn’t just recency bias. The guy would win the contest, I have no doubt. Now, if I have one guy to take the shot late in a high-pressure game, I think about it and probably take Rutherford.Shepherd: I’m honestly less worried about the money than I am keeping my legs. Give me the “Pawnee Pistol” Keiton Page and only because I’ve got a gut feeling.Carson: Rutherford. He’s the best shooter to step foot in GIA and would intimidate everyone but Adkins. Those are your finalists.Boone: My money’s on Forte. Only because this:Southwell: Forte. I’m hesitant, though, because of my record picking college football games this year. I can’t afford to be much shorter, so Forte for the Pickens’ Pocket Change.Amilian: Comes down to Rutherford and Forte for me. Since I’m pro 90s OSU basketball, I’ll roll with Randy.Nolo: Easy. Forte. The 3-pointer has become much more a part of the game as it was in the 90’s, and the 3 point line has moved back since everyone else on this list but Keiton played which means they are the only two accustomed to shooting from further away, and they have a lot more practice with it.If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.

first_imgManchester United Time to change Jose’s nickname! Mourinho’s aura of invincibility is over Kris Voakes Man Utd Correspondent Last updated 2 years ago 16:00 11/8/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(51) Jose Mourinho Manchester United 2017 Getty Images Manchester United Premier League José Mourinho The Portuguese was the leading man in title races during the early part of his coaching career but has failed to match that success recently When Jose Mourinho arrived at Chelsea in 2004 and proclaimed, “I think I am a special one” he hadn’t seemed to realise the half of it. His Stamford Bridge unveiling came at a time when he was European champion and had also led Porto to back-to-back league titles, but they were to be only the start of his achievements.Red Devils 5/2 to fail to beat NewcastleSix years later he would be able to boast four more domestic crowns, two each with Chelsea and Inter, and was king of Europe once more with the Nerazzurri. It was an extraordinary run of success that persuaded Real Madrid that he was the only man in whom they could entrust the task of toppling Pep Guardiola’s seemingly unstoppable Barcelona. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player But as Mourinho stares on at Guardiola’s latest runaway train at Manchester City in 2017-18, the Manchester United boss faces the realisation that he is the ‘Special One’ no longer. While it was a slight misinterpretation of his words which landed him that most boastful of nicknames, the moniker appeared well placed up until recent years. Nowadays it is arguable he is just another in a pack of managers attempting to play catch-up.Comparing anyone’s efforts against those of Guardiola and City right now seems almost unfair. The Sky Blues have an unprecedented number of points after 11 Premier League games, and their goals tally has never been matched in the long history of English football. Moreover, their easiness on the eye has rightly had pretty much every neutral gasping. With Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva in the form of their lives, City look as appealing an outfit as the Premier League has produced in decades.HD Jose Mourinho Pep GuardiolaSo simply taking a glance at the table, spying City’s eight-point lead and denigrating Mourinho’s work at United is not altogether honourable. Even had the Portuguese managed to squeeze every last ounce of energy out of his squad so far this season there’s every chance that they’d be still trailing in City’s wake to some extent.Yet it has been telling that United have begun to lose ground on their neighbours over the past month, given that it has coincided with an inversion of the Red Devils’ earlier style of play. Against only the feckless Crystal Palace have United scored more than once in the opening 83 minutes of their last seven league fixtures since Paul Pogba suffered a hamstring injury in September, with Mourinho responding to the loss of his most important link between defence and attack by counting upon an effective counter-attack from minute one in the majority of games.Until the Frenchman was struck by injury, Mourinho was being hailed for his ability to get United playing quick, stylish and punishing football and his side entered the last international break only a single goal off the pace set by City. However, he has simply reverted to type over the past month and United’s results have suffered.While Mourinho was arguably the man that led a new revolution in football by finding a way to frustrate the life out of opponents, the game is fast showing signs of moving on without him. Sport’s amazing knack for evolving while staying the same has ensured that new dilemmas have been thrust Mourinho’s way, and his return of two league championships in the last seven seasons suggests he is yet to come up with a resounding answer.That is not to say his recent record is terrible. Most managers in football would love to be able to get their hands on a La Liga title and a Premier League championship over a seven-year span. But the crown is definitely slipping. Mourinho is looking set for a third straight season without a league title for the first time in his career and where once his approach came across as visionary, it now strikes as being somewhat behind the times.Jose Mourinho statsHe is also struggling to match his bravado of old. He appears increasingly surly when facing the media and has contradicted himself so often of late that only Donald Trump could put him to shame. The latest was his immediate reference to injuries after Sunday’s defeat at Chelsea, having weeks earlier insisted that he was above the “crying and crying” that other managers are guilty of over their casualty lists.United’s successes in the EFL Cup and Europa League last season were perhaps symptomatic of where they are right now under the 54-year-old. They are a belligerent bunch who can stifle opponents long enough to find their way through a knockout fixture or pair of home-and-away tussles. But keeping it tight away from home is a fool’s game when the target is not to overcome a hurdle in a cup competition but to force pressure upon an otherwise carefree league leader.Mourinho’s job now is arguably to reinvent himself. Football has always had room for great defensive organisation and will for as long as the game is played, but that does not mean that prioritising such qualities will lead to success without fail. In every job he took before arriving at Old Trafford Mourinho managed at least one title in his first two campaigns, but the times they are a-changing.Suddenly the prospect of the explosive Mourinho exit by which you can normally set your watch feels closer to many onlookers than a potential United title does. The club knew what they were getting into when signing up to Jose’s doctrine, but the desire to finally return to the very top was seen as reward enough for giving up the attacking principles on which their fans thrive.The problem there is that Mourinho is no longer at the very top himself, and as much as United are a footballing force scrambling for a way to return to former glories, so too is their manager.

(AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSRohit Sharma departed for 18 after being caught behind in Kemar Roach’s overA fan edited third umpire Michael Gough’s Wikipedia page after Rohit Sharma dismissalRohit Sharma dismissal sparked controversy over third umpiringAs the bat first or pad first question continues to prevail after Rohit Sharma fell to the controversial caught behind decision against West Indies in Manchester, an irked fan went a step ahead to express his frustration over the third umpire.It was in the 6th over of the game when a length ball from Keema Roach angled in and went between Rohit Sharma’s inside edge and the pad. There was a confident appeal from West Indies but the onfield umpire rejected it, following which Jason Holder went for a review.Third umpire Michael Gough was quick to rule it out. However, TV replays showed there was a spike on UltraEdge but it wasn’t clear whether it was due to the ball’s impact on the pad or bat.In case of tight calls, the third umpires generally take a long look at the visuals but Gough’s decision to rule it out helped raise quite a few eyebrows over the umpiring and technology.The decision also frustrated fans as someone was too quick to edit Michael Gough’s Wikipedia page to mention about the controversial dismissal.”In 2019, he was chosen to be the third umpire for the India vs. West Indies match. He is under fire for choosing to overturn the on-field umpiring decision of “not out” for Rohit Sharma without considering a replay of the ball and without conclusive evidence. It is of suspicion that he is biased for his host team, England, to reach the semi-finals as England had back-to-back humiliating defeats by Sri Lanka and Australia,” was added to Gough’s original Wikipedia page.advertisement Michael Gough’s decision to overturn on-field umpire Richard Illingworth’s decision and rule Rohit Sharma out, also sparked opinions from the cricket pundits.On-field commentator Sanjay Manjrekar pointed out that there could have been bat but the visuals didn’t prove anything conclusive.”I would have taken a little bit of time to be absolutely sure. The batsman didn’t think so. The bowler was absolutely confident. There was definitely pad involved but was there any bat at all?” Sanjay Manjrekar said during his commentary duties for Star Sports.Michael Atherton added: “West Indies bowlers were equally convinced, absolutely clear gap between bat and pad, the problem with the third umpire is that the ball passes the bat and pad almost simultaneously. The on-field decision is key there and you have to be absolutely convinced to overrule it.”Third umpire on rohit’s DRS#INDvsWI #WorldCup2019 pic.twitter.com/GylaL4yEx6Juhi Jain (@schizopuniac) June 27, 2019Ground umpire be like #INDvsWI #CWC19 pic.twitter.com/wsnbL6tJyHsweety (@piggy_chopps) June 27, 2019After the match today. #IndvsWI pic.twitter.com/ktKIpJXO11aaa (@being_kappaa) June 27, 2019This mistake from 3rd Umpair is not understandable.

first_imgENVIRONMENT/LABOUR–Legislation Introduced to Protect OffshoreWorkers The government of Nova Scotia introduced legislation today, Oct.29, that will help ensure that workers in the offshore oil and gas industry have the same kind of occupational health and safetyprotections as those onshore. The legislation is designed to make occupational health andsafety policies and regulations consistent for the offshore oiland gas industry and its employees on the East Coast. To achievethis, the government of Newfoundland and Labrador is expected topass similar legislation. Legislation must also be passed by theParliament of Canada. Nova Scotia is the first of the threepartners to table proposed legislation. “Nova Scotia takes workplace health and safety seriously, bothonshore and offshore, and we are continually looking for ways toimprove upon existing laws and regulations,” said Environment andLabour Minister Kerry Morash. “Although we recognize thelegislation may require further amendments, we’re pleased to takethe lead. We believe this is a solid start for our partners towork with and for stakeholders to review.” Offshore workers are currently protected by guidelines andconditions under the Offshore Accord Implementation Act interimmeasures, which are administered by the Canada-Nova ScotiaOffshore Petroleum Board. The new bill amends the current act andwill give the federal and provincial ministers of Labour theauthority to make recommendations to pass regulations on how theboard will administer such things as standards for equipment,workplace procedures, and enforcement orders, as needed. “This act puts into law what is largely already in practice. TheCanada/Nova Scotia Offshore Petroleum Board already requiresoffshore operators to do many of the things that will be coveredunder the act. By having them in the act, the board will be ableto deal with violations more effectively,” said Mr. Morash. The province will continue consultations while the governments ofCanada and Newfoundland and Labrador continue work on similarbills to ensure that the Atlantic region provides consistentlegislation on offshore occupational health and safety.last_img read more

“At this critical juncture in Iraq’s history it is my firm belief that the Iraqi people have the capacity and self-confidence to forge a future for themselves in which they can enjoy the fruits of new-found peace, mutual respect, tolerance and the promotion of human rights,” Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Representative Ashraf Qazi said.”The United Nations attaches the greatest importance to fostering a political climate in Iraq in which Iraqis will be able to participate in free and fair elections, resulting in the successful election of a government that commands the widest possible support and confidence of the Iraqi people,” he added.”The determination of Iraqis from all walks of life to exercise their political rights has been one of the most encouraging developments in recent months.”Stressing that despite the reservations Iraq’s various communities may have, elections are always the best option, Mr. Qazi declared: “We remain confident that the Independent Electoral Commission of Iraq, established with the assistance of the United Nations, has the capacity to oversee elections fairly.” read more

first_imgSandvik has opened a major new repair, rebuild and support centre in Orange, New South Wales, designed to deliver industry-leading levels of service, as well as environmental, health and safety performance to mining operations throughout the state’s Central West. Its new Orange High Productivity Centre incorporates a modern, high-tech repair and rebuild facility, including a paint booth, along with a large warehouse operation. The facility has been purpose-built to help it better serve the needs of mines in the region, and improve safety performance in line with its customers requirements. It will also service equipment for customers from outside the region. According to Jim Tolley, Sandvik Mining’s Vice President, Sales Area Australia, the new facility is the latest example of the company’s focus on service and support for its customers throughout Australia.“Our Orange High Productivity Centre – as one of four of these centres nationally – will set new standards for safety and environmental performance, service efficiency and turnaround times for our Central West customers. It has been designed with one purpose: to align with our customers’ goals and boost their productivity.“Sandvik’s service benchmarks are to ensure that our customers’ equipment remains safe and fully productive 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every day of the year – and to achieve that, nearly 75% of our staff worldwide are dedicated to customer support.”Tolley said the company’s new Orange centre was the latest example of this philosophy.“Employing 40 people, it incorporates a state-of-the-art workshop and a warehouse, each of which are larger than our entire previous facility in Orange – and because of our standardised processes and readily available spare parts, we can provide rapid and cost-efficient repairs. This includes the ability to rebuild equipment to as-new condition, to Sandvik’s OEM specifications and standards, and with full factory warranty.”Complementing Sandvik’s new rebuild facilities at Orange is a fleet of mobile service vehicles crewed by a fully trained field service team with the skills and experience to handle a wide range of requirements. This field service coverage extends to Cobar and Broken Hill through dedicated service centres located in those locations.“Our field service technicians can also carry out machine inspections, advise on operational and maintenance practices, and assist customer technicians,” Tolley said.“Whether it’s scheduled or unscheduled maintenance calls, our field service technicians have the in-depth product knowledge and rapid support response to get customers’ equipment up-and-running as soon as possible. We realise that trained, customer-focused technicians are vital to maintaining equipment and delivering productivity targets.”Field services available from the Orange High Productivity Centre include:•           Repairs and breakdown services•           Servicing assistance•           Fault diagnosis•           Machine condition audits•           Scheduled maintenance•           Service maintenance agreements•           Machine tune-ups.In addition to its service and support capabilities, Sandvik’s new Orange High Productivity Centre will serve as its regional warehouse for the entire NSW Central West.“In most cases, we can now provide immediate replacement of parts and components for all types of Sandvik equipment used in this region,” Tolley said.“Combining our industry-standard service workshop, greatly expanded warehouse capacity and our extended field service capabilities gives us the ability to deliver reduced downtime and increased productivity for our customers.”last_img read more

first_img The Current State of Destiny 2Bungie Says it “Betrayed” Players With Destiny 2’s Sec… Stay on target Though not as big (or important) as before, Destiny 2 is still very much a thing. It retains a dedicated fan base which Bungie continues serving with regular updates. I missed out on the first expansion, Curse of Osiris, when it originally came out, but decided to try out the latest expansion: Warmind. Why? For a time, I actually liked Destiny. I wanted to see if this latest DLC would change my current apathetic view of the franchise. Unfortunately, what I found in the latest expansion and all of the new content I missed out on is more of the same. I can’t exactly say this surprises me.Warmind has players returning to Mars. This time, users get to explore the red planet’s frozen regions. There, they’ll discover secrets buried for hundreds of years. The game suggests a power level of 310. If you’ve played through the campaign, the Osiris expansion, and finished a decent amount of quests, you’ll likely already be at this level. If you’re like me and dropped Destiny 2 immediately after completing the story, you’re going to find the first mission nearly impossible to complete. In order to survive. You’re going to have to level grind.Since I had not played Curse of Osiris, I used it to level my character up. This was a perfect way to gain levels without repeating the same missions over and over again. Still, a grind is a grind. Grinding is a crucial aspect of progression-based games, and is certainly integral to Destiny’s core “carrot on a stick” gameplay loop. It’s also the game’s most frustrating aspect. Though I had unique content to play through, the fact the new DLC is effectively closed off to anyone who isn’t a Destiny devotee is somewhat disappointing. Its clear Warmind is only for the hardest of the hardcore Destiny player.AdChoices广告Warmind’s story is roughly 90 minutes to 2 hours in length. As mentioned above, you get to travel to Mars where you ally yourself with a new character named Ana Bray. You also even meet Rasputin, which is an A.I. mentioned in the first game. Like all story-related content in the franchise, Warmind features giant shooting gallery set pieces loosely held together by a thin plot. You’re given just the barest thread of a reason for why you’re fighting against ever-increasing waves of enemy mobs. It’s a lot of mindless shooting, but given Destiny’s excellent combat system (i.e. its best feature), it’s also a good load of fun. For good or ill, I didn’t much care why I had to kill off all these aliens. I just liked shooting stuff and unleashing my crazy space-magic powers.On top of the new story quest, Mars also has additional activities. These include Adventures, Lost Sectors, and Escalation Protocol. The latter is yet another piece of content that’ll make you have to grind if you’re under-leveled. Even with allies, this horde-like mode is nearly impossible to finish for underpowered players. The grind wall also applies to the expansion’s raid which, like Escalation Protocol, requires players to have a power level of 370. Getting players together for a raid is hard enough, but having to level grind to even try it is a bit much.Mars is one of my favorite destinations in Destiny, so I enjoyed revisiting its futuristic ruins. After completing the first two missions, you’re free to explore Mars at your leisure. There are a ton of different things to find. These include data nodes, patrols, strikes, secrets, and more. Visually, the environment is magnificent in an eerie way. The contrast between the red-brown skies and the frozen landscape evoke a sense of otherworldly wonder. Granted, all of this (like most of the game) is surface level at best. There isn’t much depth to anything, but it all looked slick. I’ll give it that.Though both Warmind and Curse of Osiris offer expertly crafted shooting galleries, the expansions do little to get me excited for Destiny. I’m trying not to be negative here. I know there are many who still enjoy playing the game. I also believe Bungie is genuinely doing their best with the franchise. However, playing Destiny still feels more like work than anything. The shooting is great, but that’s about it. Given the diminished enthusiasm for Destiny 2 from the general gaming community, I know I’m not the only one who feels this way.It is entirely possible Destiny as a franchise will get a new lease on life either with another expansion or with a sequel. Right now, there simply isn’t enough going on for anyone who isn’t an uber-dedicated fan to go crazy over. If you’ve already moved on from Destiny 2, there really isn’t much of a reason to come back. Destiny 2 and its expansions aren’t bad, but I’m personally done with the franchise until I see some actual evolution. Perhaps the massive update due this fall can change my mind? We’ll see what happens.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

first_imgLiverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has risen to Mohamed Salah’s defence following allegations that he’s been diving to win penalties.The Egyptian forward has been at the centre of a growing debate over diving due to an apparent willingness to fall to the ground too easily in a challenge.As a result, several spot-kicks have come in Salah’s favour this term with Crystal Palace players even confronting him during Liverpool’s last game on January 19 when he was not awarded a penalty for falling to the ground.But Klopp is adamant that Salah would never dive on purpose and suggested that critics are only targetting him due to the fact he plays for a big club like Liverpool.“[Crystal Palace] was the first situation where he went down without [a penalty] and you speak about all the other situations as well,” said Klopp, according to FourFourTwo.“The other situations there is nothing to talk about – it is a penalty, done. If this is the first then why do we talk about?“There are other situations, much more obvious situations, that we don’t talk about and nobody is talking about because it’s not [Manchester] City, it’s not [Manchester] United, it’s not Liverpool, it’s not Arsenal or it’s not Chelsea.“All the others can do it from time to time and nobody really talks about it. It’s all fine.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“All the penalties against him were penalties, but people handle it like it was halfway diving – it was not. We don’t need blood for a foul in football. That’s all I will say about it.”Interestedly, Klopp then pointed out that Leicester City’s star striker Jamie Vardy falls to the ground in the same way as Salah does.The German made these comments ahead of tonight’s Premier League match against the Foxes at Anfield.“Did anyone talk to Jamie Vardy when, everybody saw [against Southampton], he jumped in? Is Jamie a bad person because of that?” Klopp added.“I don’t say now he is a diver. That is another situation.“You have them in the back, you are there, you feel something, do you have to go down?“Probably not. I don’t have to speak to players about obvious things. He knows that. Don’t go down in situations like that.”last_img read more

first_imgKhaleda has been in jail since 8 February. File photoThe chief of country’s primary opposition political party, Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), and former prime minister Khaleda Zia, now in jail, has refused to take treatment from the government appointed physicians.A four-member medical team visited Khaleda in jail on Sunday, examined her health condition and wrote a prescription as well, but Khaleda told the authorities that she would not take treatment from them she rather demanded a team of personal doctors for her treatment, according to the officials concerned.When a smokescreen over the illness of the opposition leader is brewing up in the political arena with a rumour going around that her arch-rival Bangladesh Awami League (AL)-led government might send Khaleda abroad in the name of her treatment, ahead of the general elections, the government formed medical team Sunday, to assess the BNP chairperson’s health.Led by the head of the orthopedics department at the Dhaka Medical College Hospital professor M Shamsuzzaman, the medical team includes head of neurology department of the hospital Mansur Habib, internal medicine specialist Titu Mia and physical medicine department head Soheli Rahman.When contacted, acting civil surgeon of Dhaka district Abul Fazal Md Shahabuddin told Prothom Alo that the medical team examined Khaleda’s health and wrote a prescription for her. “But they will submit a report to the director on Monday [today],” he added.Asked if Khaleda is ailing, Abul Fazal said she is doing well. “The ailments like knee pain are old ones. However, it is natural that the problems will increase keeping pace with her age.”A rumour went around for the past couple of days that Khaleda is ailing in jail and her health condition was so bad that she could not be produced before a trial court on Wednesday. The next day BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul was denied a meeting with her in jail on account of her illness.Next a rumour circulated that Khaleda might be sent abroad for treatment and BNP leaders said this rumour made them worried because the jail authorities had not issued any formal statement regarding the health of their leader.Khaleda’s personal physicians had sought an appointment to meet her in jail too, but the jail authorities did not give them the permission.Addressing a press conference at the party’s Naya Paltan headquarters on Friday, BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said, “We fear that there might be an effort to remove the opposition here the way the other autocratic regimes usually remove the opposition.”Khaleda’s regular physician in jail Mahmudul Hasan told Prothom Alo on Sunday, “I examined her [Khaleda] health at [Sunday] noon. She is doing well.”Officials in the home ministry said the government has formed the medical team in the wake of different remarks coming from different quarters including from her party regarding her health.“We’re doing whatever necessary for her better treatment,” home minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal told Prothom Alo.Asked if the authorities would allow Khaleda taking treatment from her personal doctors, the home minister replied in the negative. “It’s not possible as per the jail code.”He said the authorities would take decision as per the prescription of the medical team. “If necessary, she [Khaleda] will be admitted to the Dhaka Medical College Hospital.”He, however, said none of the doctors said Khaleda is ill.Party senior leaders said the actual state of Khaleda’s health is not clear to them. The party is in the dark and their apprehensions about the condition of Khaleda’s health have been exacerbated by rumours making rounds in the political arena.last_img read more

first_imgValve’s presence at CES this year isn’t to show off some new games, it’s all about meeting with hardware manufacturers behind closed doors to talk about Steam Box. What that also means is Gabe Newell is in attendance, and The Verge was lucky enough to get a very revealing interview with him. Here’s a summary of what he had to say.Good, Better, or Best hardwareUntil now, the general description of a Steam Box has been a cheap mini PC that sits under your living room TV and is driven with a controller. But according to Gabe it’s much more than that. In fact, he says there’s three levels of Steam Box: “Good, Better, or Best.” The Good level is basically a media streaming device, Better is a decent CPU/GPU combo for games playing, and Best is a high-end small form factor PC that includes everything you’d expect from a performance machine.Valve has already confirmed it is going to offer its own version of the Steam Box, and Gabe says it will be at the “Better” level. That means a box with a CPU/GPU combination capable of running all games, combined with Steam for Linux. Windows won’t be offered, but there will be nothing to stop you installing Microsoft’s OS on Valve’s Steam Box.High precision controller and no motion inputAs for the controller, Valve wants something that’s more high precision than anything else out there at the moment. Experiments are also underway to include some forms of biometrics, with particular emphasis on those you as a gamer probably won’t even notice are being monitored and used. A key example of that is gaze tracking.Motion control on the other hand, seems unlikely to make an appearance. That simply comes down to the fact Valve hasn’t been able to find a good use for it, and they still class Wii Sports as the pinnacle of motion control gaming. It simply doesn’t work as well as a controller for games, and I’m sure many would agree with that statement, myself included.Steam Box is actually two projectsWhat you may be surprised to hear is that Steam Box is actually two projects at Valve. The first is codenamed Bigfoot and focuses on the hardware for use in the home with a TV. But there’s a second project codenamed Littlefoot that’s investigating mobile gaming. For the moment, Littlefoot seems to be more experimentation than real product, with Valve looking into better input on tablets and phones and how to extend Steam to mobile platforms.Bigfoot is also an evolving platform, and one that Gabe says will take full advantage of more powerful hardware that will appear in the coming years. For example, Valve intends to make Steam Box a server, which can serve games on multiple TVs around the home simultaneously. So you could purchase a single Steam Box and use it with multiple controllers for playing games on the different TVs around your home.Windows 8 is a “giant sadness”Moving on to software, Gabe talks about Windows 8 being a “giant sadness” for him that hurts everyone. He also says the impact of Windows 8 has been a 20 percent decline in PC sales rather than the 40 percent uptake it should have brought. That, for him, shows that Microsoft’s latest OS is flawed and “unusable.”Steam set to become multiple storesSteam as we know it may also experience some major changes in the near future. We’ve already seen Big Picture Mode introduced and Steam Greenlight go live, but Valve has plans to open the service up for individuals. The idea being, you can create your very own custom Steam store.Valve wants to offer anyone the opportunity to build their own store with the content they want. That could be a “worst games of Steam” store, a store dedicated to multiplayer games, or one setup for a team of gamers who focus on a small set of games they enjoy playing together.But Valve also has content creators in mind and wants to better support their creations and hopefully expand that service to games from all publishers. In doing so, Steam will become a platform not only for the games, but all the additional content created around a title–be that from the developer or individuals.Read more at The Vergelast_img read more
