17-year-old Riyan Parag credited Steve Smith’s on-field guidance after the duo came up with a match-winning stand for Rajasthan Royals in their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 match against Mumbai Indians at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium on Saturday. RR vs MI – Report | HighlightsRiyan Parag, playing only his second IPL match, came out all guns blazing in Rajasthan Royals’ chase of 162 on a two-paced wicket.Parag, who represented India at the U-19 World Cup in 2018, hit a 29-ball 43 and stitched a 69-run stand with his captain Steve Smith that took the game away from Mumbai Indians. Parag played with the confidence of a seasoned campaigner and took on some of the best Mumbai bowlers, including Rahul Chahar and Lasith Malinga.Stressing it was a dream-come-true for him to play with Steve Smith whom he had watched on television sets a couple of years ago, Parag said: “”Yes, of course. Steve Smith made it really easy for me. He was like just ‘think you are batting with a friend when you play gully cricket just think like that’. I just thought like that and I played my game,” Parag said.”Some of the players I just see on the TV, just for the fact, Steve Smith, I have admired him for so long now and to share the crease with him was just exceptional,” Parag told Star Sports after Mumbai’s five-wicket win over Rajasthan.Parag, who has hit the second-fastest half-century behind Virat Kohli in youth Tests, has been a consistent performer at the age-group level for India in the recent past. Parag made his IPL debut against the Chennai Super Kings on April 11 and impressed with a 14-ball 16.advertisementOn Saturday, Parag, who can bowl handy leg-spin, seemingly took control of the match-winning stand with Steve Smith, who has heaped rich praise on the teenager.Speaking after winning the Man of the Match award for his 48-ball 59, Steve Smith said Parag is going to have a great cricketing future.”Parag was really impressive; I have been watching him in the nets and with the bat looks like a seasoned campaigner. He’s a great kid and has a great future, I hope I was as confident when I was 17,” Smith said.Also Read | Steve Smith on replacing Ajinkya Rahane as RR captain: Owners felt need for changeAlso See:

Nagpur: There are possibilities of a government changing every five years and social organisations should not depend on it for help, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat said on Monday.Addressing an event to mark the 125th birth anniversary of Mahamahopadhyay V V Mirashi, Bhagwat said social and research organisations should work towards a strong and permanent source to carry out work for the welfare of the society. “Those who want to speak to government should approach it. But, I don’t feel that social organisations should be dependent (“aashrit”) on government. Because, governments keeps changing, earlier the royal (“rajwati”) government used to change in 30 to 50 years. Now, there are possibilities of a government changing in five years. Hence, there is no faith, until it is there, utilise it,” he said.

Gaining knowledge could be for self interest or for welfare of the society. Knowledge is the way for eternal life. Actually, knowledge is for eternity and giving eternity to all,” he said. Bhagwat further said that Britishers did a lot of research for modern India. “The country’s population census and geography still runs on the basis of their research. But, their research cannot be said as ‘Sanshodhan Maharishi’ as their purpose was selfish and not for the welfare of the people,” he said.

WASHINGTON — Fresh off slapping a duty on Canadian lumber, President Donald Trump is now making threats about dairy as the northern neighbour has suddenly, unexpectedly, become his No. 1 target for criticism lately on trade.The president tweeted Tuesday: “Canada has made business for our dairy farmers in Wisconsin and other border states very difficult. We will not stand for this. Watch!”That’s what he wrote the morning after his government announced initial duties up to 24 per cent on Canadian lumber, with more expected later this year.Canada has made business for our dairy farmers in Wisconsin and other border states very difficult. We will not stand for this. Watch!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 25, 2017Lumber and dairy are longstanding irritants — and were also a problem file under previous presidents. In softwood lumber, the countries have a once-a-decade cycle of tariffs, trade litigation, and ultimately settlements.What’s new is how Trump is playing up the issue.While Barack Obama referred to lumber as a minor irritant, the self-styled America First president is playing up these irritants as examples of his desire to get tough on trade.His sudden flurry of complaints about Canada are a dramatic departure from the early days of his presidency — suddenly, he’s complaining less about China and Mexico, and more about the northern neighbour — and it’s being noticed.If you’re worried about global trade imbalances, focus on China.If you want to rough up a school kid for his lunch money, blame Canada.— ian bremmer (@ianbremmer) April 25, 2017 In an exchange late Monday with conservative media gathered at the White House, the president said, according to Breitbart News: “We love Canada, wonderful people, wonderful country, but they have been very good about taking advantage of us through NAFTA.”Then his commerce secretary went out of his way to link this dispute to broader complaints, about dairy and about NAFTA: “It has been a bad week for U.S.-Canada trade relations,” Wilbur Ross said.Canada vows to fight ‘unfair and punitive duty’ as Trump slaps tariff on softwood lumberU.S. trade sanctions on Canadian energy will have ‘huge consequences’ for American companies: Notley“This is not our idea of a properly functioning free trade agreement.”The softwood spat is unfolding amid a much bigger trade issue — the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement.Despite remarks from the president and his cabinet secretary, neither lumber nor dairy are actually part of the current NAFTA. However, different actors would be pleased to add provisions on one or the other.

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email WASHINGTON – The outlook for the U.S. job market is brightening after a government report showed a sharp drop in the number of Americans applying for unemployment benefits.Weekly applications fell 27,000 to a seasonally adjusted 341,000, the Labor Department said Thursday. Outside a few weeks last month affected by seasonal distortions, that’s the lowest level in nearly five years.The four-week average, which smooths week-to-week fluctuations, stayed near a five-year low.Economists were encouraged by the decline but want to see the progress sustained and more jobs created. Since the recession ended in June 2009, the job market has shown brief bursts of improvement in the winter months only to falter in the spring.In addition, the huge snowstorm that affected the Northeastern states over the weekend could push up applications in the coming weeks. The latest report covered the week ended Feb. 9, prior to when the storm hit.“This is tentatively a positive signal for the labour market,” Daniel Silver, an economist at JPMorgan Chase, said in a note to clients.Falling applications signal fewer layoffs. More hiring usually follows, but not always.Since November, the four-week average has declined 5 per cent to 352,500 applications. And job growth has increased to an average of 200,000 net positions a month from November through January, up from 150,000 in the previous three months.But the employment report measures net job gains, which equals total hiring minus layoffs, quits and other separations.A decline in layoffs can boost net job gains even when total hiring is flat or down. A separate Labor Department report earlier this week showed that layoffs fell to a 10-year low in December. Overall hiring, however, also declined.Many companies may be more cautious about hiring now that a 2 percentage point increase in Social Security taxes is cutting consumers’ take-home pay. That could slow growth.Still, if applications remain consistently below 350,000, net job growth should increase, said Carl Riccadonna, an economist at Deutsche Bank. Monthly gains could rise to an average of 225,000 per month, he added.Gains at that level should steadily lower the still-high unemployment rate, which ticked up to 7.9 per cent in January from 7.8 per cent in December.Economists expect the rate will decline if hiring continues at last year’s monthly pace of 180,000. The rate fell 0.7 percentage points in 2012.The number of people receiving benefits has increased. More than 5.9 million people received benefits in the week ended Jan. 26, the latest data available. That was about 325,000 more than the previous week.The economy contracted at an annual rate of 0.1 per cent in the October-December quarter, hurt by a sharp cut in defence spending, fewer exports and sluggish growth in company stockpiles. That’s much slower than the 3.1 per cent growth recorded in the July-September period.Still, economists expect that figure will be revised in the coming months to show a small increase, after more data about last quarter has been reported. Economists at Barclays Capital estimate the economy expanded 0.5 per cent in the fourth quarter.Growth will likely pick up a bit in the January-March quarter to an annual rate of 1.5 per cent, analysts forecast. That’s better than the fourth quarter but below last year’s expansion of 2.2 per cent. Sharp drop in weekly US unemployment benefit applications bolsters outlook for job market by Christopher S.

European automobile manufacturers welcomed the main recommendations of the final report by the CARS21 High-level Group but warned that these proposals now need to be executed urgently. The report, produced by a coalition of EU Commissioners, various ministers, automobile industry CEOs, suppliers, trade unions and civil society, lists ways and means of strengthening the future of the automobile industry in Europe.“It is essential that the findings are implemented and real action taken as soon as possible”, said Sergio Marchionne, President of the industry’s trade association ACEA and CEO of FIAT S.p.A. The CARS21 report focuses on improving the competitiveness of the auto industry in a global perspective, by streamlining the EU regulatory framework and better coordinating relevant European policies.The European automotive industry needs the EU regulatory framework to be supportive in order to sustain and strengthen the sector’s position in the fiercely competitive global market place. Regulation can too often add undue complexity limit flexibility.The European manufacturers are world leaders in low-carbon technologies, road safety solutions and intelligent mobility concepts. ‘Smarter’ policies and regulations can and should reinforce the industry’s competitiveness and benefit the European economy as a whole.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)

EVERGREEN COACH Giovanni Trapattoni said he is looking forward to fresh challenges after failing to lead Ireland to the World Cup in Brazil next year.Trapattoni, speaking to Radio Anch’Io Sport on Monday, recently ended his spell as coach of the Irish after they could only finish fourth in Group C qualifying behind Germany, Sweden and Austria.“We parted amicably after four years together,” said Trapattoni, who admitted nonetheless that his task was not helped by two key obstacles. “Half of the players do not play in the English top flight and often the players were not first team regulars.”Trapattoni, 74, is one of the oldest active coaches at either club or international level.But that has not dampened his desire to take up one of the offers he said have come from as far afield as the United States or Japan.Having notably coached Serie A teams AC Milan, Juventus, Fiorentina and Inter, as well as Bayern Munich and the Italian national side, Trapattoni has become one of the most celebrated managers in football history.He is one of four coaches, alongside Ernst Happel, Jose Mourinho, and Tomislav Ivic to have won league titles in four different countries and one of only two coaches, with Udo Lattek, to have won all three European club titles.Despite the advancing years, Trapattoni said he has no plans to retire as yet.“I have to be careful where I choose next,” he said. “I’ve received flattering requests from far off places like America and Japan. I have meetings lined up in the near future and we’ll see whether I decide to go east or west.”He added: “I still have the enthusiasm for this job because mentally, I feel fresh. I’m not ready to take a back office position just yet.”- © AFP 2013Paul Scholes scores a cracker from his own half in over-35s game
The Internet is a great source of information, not just through resources like Wikipedia, but through millions of personal pages devoted to the full spectrum of human interests. Most would agree that this is a good thing all around, but there’s always a certain class of person who believes that there’s such a thing as too much information, and also that certain kinds of information are simply bad.That’s why it’s disappointing to hear that the Catholic Church is now warning people that the Internet is breeding a new wave of Satanism. According to Carlo Climati of the Regina Apostolorum Pontifical University in Rome, Italy, the Internet has made it much too easy to find information about Satanist groups:“The internet makes it much easier than in the past to find information about Satanism… In just a few minutes you can contact Satanist groups and research occultism. The conference is not about how to become an exorcist. It’s to share information about exorcism, Satanism and sects. It’s to give help to families and priests. There is a particular risk for young people who are in difficulties or who are emotionally fragile.” Honestly, this is a bit alarming. Basically, what this guy is saying is that because the Internet has led to more information being available about Satanism, that has caused more people to join Satanic Cults, which therefore means that more people have been possessed by demons, which finally leads to there being an increased need for exorcisms… a shameful, superstitious practice that has killed more than a few innocents the Church has rightfully been trying to distance itself from for years.Needless to say, it does not follow that the rise of the Internet has seen rise to a legion of demons taking over people’s souls. What absolute drivel. I’d rather Satanism be on the rise than exorcisms.Read more at Telegraph
Marée noire : l’explosion de deux oléoducs entraîne la fermeture de plusieurs plages en ChineChine – Survenue après l’explosion de deux oléoducs vendredi dernier, la marée noire qui souille le port de Dalian, dans le nord-est de la Chine, a atteint l’île touristique de Bangchui et entraîné la fermeture de plusieurs plages polluées.Alors que les autorités tentent de nettoyer la nappe qui s’étend sur au moins 183 km², l’île de Bangchui a été fermée au public, comme les plages de Dalian. Les secouristes ont installé des barrières flottantes pour empêcher la marée noire de s’étendre, utilisant plus de 23 tonnes de bactéries mangeuses de pétrole pour lutter contre cette pollution. Ce processus de biotraitement utilise des micro-organismes pour casser certaines molécules toxiques que contiennent les hydrocarbures, et ainsi les transformer en des substances moins néfastes pour l’environnement.À lire aussiSoleil : Pourquoi est-ce que l’on bronze ?Cette marée noire a été engendrée par l’explosion de deux oléoducs, suivie d’un incendie. Quelque 1.500 tonnes de pétrole se seraient, d’après les médias chinois, déversées dans la mer. Pour l’instant, au moins 460 tonnes auraient été récupérées. “Notre priorité est de ramasser la majorité du pétrole dans les cinq jours afin de réduire la possibilité de contamination des eaux internationales” a expliqué à l’agence Chine Nouvelle, Dai Yulin, le maire-adjoint de la ville de Dalian.Mais les mauvaises conditions climatiques ont déjà contraint la plupart des bateaux de pêche mobilisés pour participer au nettoyage de la marée noire à rentrer au port, et pluies et vents pourraient perturber les opérations visant à contenir la nappe de pétrole.
