Sydney Olympics hero Karnam Malleswari lauds Sakshi Malik, urges her to start preparing for Tokyo Games

first_imgIndia’s first woman to win a medal in Olympics, former weightlifter Karnam Malleswari, has heaped praise on wrestler Sakshi Malik for winning a historic bronze medal at the Rio Olympics. Malleswari, who was India’s lone medallist at the Sydney Olympics in 2000, said that Sakshi has inspired youngsters of the entire country with her medal-winning feat in Rio.”Sakshi has opened an entirely new route to success in Olympics as wrestling and weightlifting, which was my sport, were always considered as men’s sports. When girls return with a medal, that too ahead of men, they become idol for youngsters and I am sure Sakshi has inspired millions of them,” Malleswari told INDIA TODAY in an interview. (RIO 2016 FULL COVERAGE)The celebrated weightlifter, now a top-notch manager with a PSU, said repeated success of female sportspersons should make the country proud.   “Look at the way Sakshi’s family is celebrating their daughter’s success today. Everyone is dancing in joy. Hope others learn seeing all this. In Haryana, families already support female sportspersons in a big manner. More will celebrate the birth of a daughter now,” said Malleswari.She said that if India has to match China in sports, or USA and Great Britain for that matter, then the preparation for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and 2024 Games should begin right from the start of the closing ceremony at Rio.  “It is true that India still doesn’t have a sports culture to be proud of. Parents focus on a child’s education and don’t realise that sports could also be a good career option. We can definitely match China but have to first build infrastructure like them. Promoting sports at the school, grassroot level, is most important. We need maximum participation. China, I am sure, would’ve finalised their 2020 and 2024 Olympic teams by now. Those kids would be training somewhere right now. They (China) have a plan in place – on how many players will take part in a world championship or nationals or, if someone isn’t going there, for Asian tournaments. If we also plan in a similar way, winning a medal in Olympics won’t be difficult as we have plenty of talented youngsters.”advertisementLike it happens in every big sporting event where India participates, sports federation officials, babus, politicians grabbed headlines for all the wrong reasons in Rio even as the sportspersons struggled to grab the first medal for the country. However, Malleswari says when in their zone, a sportsperson seldom cares about what’s happening beyond the playing arena. (Also read: Rio 2016 medallist Sakshi Malik took up sports because she wanted to fly in an airplane) “As a sportsperson, it does not make any difference if we are travelling economy and officials are in business class or if they are staying at a five-star resort and we in an average hotel. Our focus is just on our performance and medal. A player just wants to give his or her best performance and isn’t bothered by all that happens at the sidelines. I guess that even officials realise that they won’t be there if a player doesn’t perform well or qualifies.”She also hoped that sports federations should from the Indian cricket board instead of always getting involved in the game of comparing and criticising.  “We can’t compare anything with cricket. In fact, I believe that sports federations should learn the art of promoting a sport from the Indian cricket board. Ye rona ki unko zyada publicity aur paisa mil raha hai, yeh hamaari kami hai (cribbing that cricketers get more money and publicity is the real bane).There hasn’t been an Olympic medal for India in weightlifting since Sydney and Malleswari isn’t hopeful about future either. “Weightlifting dominated till 2000, no other sport gave so many medals to the country. It pains me that we were not able to handle it post my medal at Sydney Olympics. There were some controversies including doping which spoiled the image of sport. It’s not an easy sport to pursue, one has to practice for 10-12 hours every day, lifting thousand tonnes of weights. Kids do not choose it easily, especially from affluent families. It’s a poor man’s sport, actually,” said the former Olympian.last_img read more

Indian mountaineers scale highest peak in Europe, display 50-ft Indian flag atop summit

first_imgFive young mountaineers from Telangana, Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh created multiple records by scaling the Mount Elbrus in Russia, which is the highest peak in Europe at 5,640 meters and displaying a 50-ft Indian tricolour atop the summit.The team consisted of Satya Rao of Bagarampalem (Vishakhapatnam), Raghunadh Reddy of Tadepalli (Guntur), Poorna Malavath, Varsha Rahul of Pune and Vidya of Telangana created this record.

The girls are students from the Telangana Social Welfare Residential Educational Institutions Society (TSWREIS).For Poorna, it was the third highest peak in a row!About Mount ElbrusAn inactive volcano standing at 18,560-ft tall, Mount Elbrus is no easy climb even though it is considered the easiest among the Seven Summits. “Mount Elbrus is a dormant volcano and the last explosion occurred about 2,000 years ago. The two summits of Elbrus are, in fact, two craters of volcano. Everywhere on its slopes you can see debris of solidified lava,” Reddy told The Hindu.The expeditionThe team of five began their expedition on July 21 when they flew from Hyderabad to Russia and reached the mountain base on July 22.

Amazin’ Mets Stun Nationals, 8-7

first_imgWASHINGTON — The Washington Nationals had a six-run lead and needed only nine outs to trim their deficit in the NL East.From that point on, nothing went right.The Nationals’ bullpen gave away the entire advantage in the seventh inning, Kirk Nieuwenhuis hit a pinch-homer off Jonathan Papelbon in the eighth and the New York Mets escaped with an 8-7 victory Sept. 8 night to lengthen their division lead over Washington to six games.Afterward, the Nationals had no choice but to look ahead and try to forget this disappointing defeat as soon as possible.“This season is far from over,” Papelbon said. “Everybody’s got to pick up everybody in every count, in every situation. There’s nothing else we can do. We’ve got to keep grinding, go out and win another ballgame tomorrow.”Manager Matt Williams offered a similar spin.“There’s times where things go well. And you understand that there’s times on the other side of that coin,” he said. “So what do you do? You pick yourselves up by the bootstraps and you go. You don’t have a choice at this point.”The Mets erased the deficit with a six-run seventh fueled by six walks — half of them by Drew Storen — and a wild pitch (also by Storen). The big blow was a three-run double by Yoenis Cespedes, who one inning earlier committed an error that allowed three runs to score.Nieuwenhuis gave New York its first lead with a drive to right off Papelbon (3-2), obtained before the July 31 trade deadline to help Washington’s drive toward the postseason. It was Nieuwenhuis’ fourth home run; the other three came in one game against Arizona on July 12.“We’re playing like we don’t have anything to lose, and that’s what we need to do,” Nieuwenhuis said. “I’m just going to enjoy the ride.”Addison Reed (3-2) worked the seventh and Jeurys Familia got three outs for his 38th save. With two runners on, Familia got Yunel Escobar to ground into a game-ending double play.Mets starter Matt Harvey allowed a career high-tying seven runs in 5 1-3 innings.Harvey has thrown 171 2-3 innings this year, his first season since undergoing elbow ligament-replacement surgery in October 2013.He and the Mets want to keep his innings count at around 180-185 for the regular season, so it is possible this was Harvey’s last start until early October or in the postseason.Until that time, the right-hander will have this game to ponder. He came in with a 0.99 ERA against the Nationals, and the seven runs he allowed were one more than in his previous six starts combined.It was 3-1 in the sixth when the Nationals used a single, a walk and a bunt to load the bases. Wilson Ramos struck out before Michael Taylor lined an RBI single to center, and three more runs came home when the ball got past Cespedes and rolled to the wall.That ended Harvey’s night, but the Mets’ comeback prevented him from falling to 12-8.(DAVID GINSBURG, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Three US children dead northeast of Calgary after SUV collides with truck

first_imgHANNA, Alta. – RCMP say three children who died when a semi-trailer truck collided with an SUV northeast of Calgary Wednesday were all from the United States.“The family is from Washington State,” said RCMP Cpl. Laurel Scott. “The parents are both in hospital in Calgary and they’re in stable condition.”The crash happened at a highway intersection near Hanna, about 200 kilometres northeast of Calgary.Chris Kalyn with Alberta Health Services said paramedics were dispatched to the crash at a highway intersection around 5:45 p.m.“We had three children, an 11-month-old and two children in their mid teens, that were deceased on scene,” Kalyn said.The adults in the SUV have not been identified, but RCMP say they are a 44-year-old man and a 32-year-old woman.

In Guatemala UNICEF chief urges increased nutrition and justice for children

In a press statement released during his visit to the Central American nation’s capital, Guatemala City, UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake voiced concern for the welfare of an estimated 5,800 children still languishing in institutions throughout the country with little or no access to their families or alternative care. “All children need the love and nurturing only a family can give no matter how good and caring the institution. And while it’s encouraging to see the signs of progress in both nutrition and protection, if we fail to sustain it, we leave a generation at risk,” Mr. Lake declared. “We cannot let the immensity of the problems discourage us from making progress – nor let the progress create complacency. We must accelerate it,” he added. Mr. Lake, however, pointed to “encouraging signs of progress,” including the creation of special courts to hear cases of violence and abuse in high crime regions of the country. Moreover, he noted that an increasing number of children were leaving institutions and being reunited with their families. “There is greater agreement to resolve adoption cases with clear targets and to prevent children being institutionalized,” a news release issued by UNICEF confirmed. During his trip to Guatemala, Mr. Lake also visited the city of Totonicapán, where he witnessed first hand ongoing efforts to reduce the country’s levels of malnutrition. According to UNICEF statistics, Guatemala has the sixth-highest malnutrition rates in the world, with 49 per cent of children under five chronically malnourished or stunted. In meetings with the President of Guatemala, Otto Pérez Molina, the Executive Director praised the country’s efforts to reduce its chronic under-nutrition by 10 per cent by 2015, adding that the UN would help the country accelerate its progress and build “robust child protection systems.” “Food alone is not a guarantee to being well nourished,” said Mr. Lake. “Good nutrition lies at the heart of progress. Simple, cost-effective packages like breastfeeding, micro-nutrients and hand-washing can unleash the potential of children to learn and earn and for a nation to succeed.” read more

Diesel cars marketed as cleanest in history still belching out dangerous levels

first_imgAlthough car companies have not broken the law, campaigners said they were misleading customers by claiming their vehicles were greenCredit:Tobias Schwarz REUTERS Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Paul Morozzo, Greenpeace Clean Air Campaigner, said: “Carmakers, backed by the industry lobby, are yet again knowingly misleading their customers and the public at large by marketing new Euro 6 diesels as the ‘cleanest in history’.“Their own data shows that more than half of the very newest, top selling, Euro 6 diesel cars pollute far above the latest standards.“They’re still dirty and they’re still putting peoples’ health at risk. It’s time the industry took responsibility and stopped investing in diesel.”The data also showed that some manufacturers had managed to produce diesel cars well below the limit such as  Opel/Vauxhall’s 2 litre Grandland-X which recorded overall NOx emissions of no more than 35.5mg/km.Almost all of the strongest performers were fitted with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology, which converts nitrogen oxides into nitrogen and water by injecting urea into the exhaust. However experts said most companies would choose to simply ditch diesel in future rather than adopt expensive methods for lowering emissions.Dr James Tate, Associate Professor at the Institute for Transport Studies , at the University of Leeds, said: “It is evident that controlling NOx emissions from diesel cars is challenging and expensive, with only a handful of manufactures of new models currently being found to emit NOx at a lower level.“The result is most manufacturers are already stepping away from manufacturing smaller diesel cars, with Fiat Chrysler declaring they’ll ditch diesel altogether from all its cars by 2022, and all Volvo cars launched from 2019 onwards will be partially or completely battery-powered.”Fiat declined to comment on the investigation. Renault said all but two of its diesel vehicles now fell within the new nitrogen oxide levels, while Opel/Vauxhall said the cars highlighted in the report did not need to meet September levels.center_img Diesel cars marketed as the ‘cleanest in history’ are still belching out more than four times the legal limit of harmful nitrogen oxide, an investigation has found.A study of the newest models of the greenest Euro 6 diesel cars on sale across Europe by Greenpeace investigators found half of cars recently approved for sale would not be allowed on the market if tested today.Although car manufacturers were ordered to clean up their emissions following the Volkswagen ‘dieselgate’ scandal in 2015, limits for nitrogen oxide did not come in until September last year.When campaigners tested cars between April 2016 and September 2017 they found half emitted nitrogen oxide gas above the new legal limit of 168mg/km NOx.The worst results were for the 1.6 litre Fiat Tipo, which recorded overall emissions of 561mg/km – 3.3 times the current legal limit – and 753mg/km in urban driving – 4.5 times the limit.Other cars with poor results for emissions include the Renault Scenic Energy dCi 95 which was 2.4 times over the limit and  Opel/Vauxhall’s 1.6l Crossland-X at 2.3 times the limit.And because they were tested before the new limit came into effect, manufactures are able to label their cars as Euro6 – the greenest category.

Wii U expected to be sold out through March

first_imgIf you are planning on waiting until you can just walk into the store and pick up a Wii U, you’ll probably have to wait at least until March. The console is expected to remain sold out, with customers likely to still be lining up outside the door for new shipments until the spring of 2013.That is the prediction from outspoken gaming industry analyst Michael Pachter. He has a mixed track record about gauging the near future of the industry, but he did correctly predict that the Wii U wouldn’t gain the critical acclaim that Nintendo was hoping for. Instead, the system’s launch was plagued with criticism for the arduous setup process, the need for an immediate firmware update, and the lack of video streaming services.Nevertheless, the Wii U is the first new video game console in six years. Never before in the modern gaming era has there been that kind of gap in between consoles, and as a result the fervor is inevitable.That being said, there is a marked difference in the climate surrounding the Wii U than there was for the Wii, or even the Xbox 360 or PS3. Back then, video game consoles were king. They were the coolest things around. Now, they have to share that attention with iPads and Kindle Fires.In other words, the Wii U is going to do exceptional during the first several months — just because that’s the way this industry works — but its staying power is what’s really in question.via Now Gamerlast_img read more

Man who supplied girlfriend with drugs at English music festival found guilty

first_img 34,173 Views Short URL A MAN WHO supplied his girlfriend with drugs at a festival in England has been convicted of her manslaughter by gross negligence. Musician Ceo Broughton (29) did not seek medical help for six hours for his girlfriend Louella Fletcher-Michie (25) after she suffered a dangerous reaction to the drug 2CP at the Bestival music festival in Dorset on 10 September 2017.The court heard how Broughton – who was serving a 24-week suspended sentence at the time of the incident – failed to take urgent action at the time. Medical experts said if he had taken action it would almost certainly have saved Fletcher-Michie’s life.The pair were only 400 metres away from the onsite hospital. During the trial, the jury were shown footage that Broughton himself had taken over the course of the six hours which showed Fletcher-Michie in a highly distressed state. The jury also heard how he reportedly ignored desperate requests from her family to seek help and referred to her as a “drama queen” as she was suffering from the effects of the drug.Fletcher-Michie was the daughter of Holby City actor John Michie.Winchester Crown Court also saw texts which showed Broughton attempted to cover his tracks. “If the fam asks, say a ra don (sic) gave us 2C-P,” he texted to a friend. When the friend told him to seek medical help for Fletcher-Michie, he replied: No Comments Ceon Broughton arrives at Winchester Crown Court.

GOOD NEWS BAD NEWS Wilmington Home Values WAY UP Average Homeowner To

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA – It was announced at Monday night’s Wilmington Board of Selectmen Meeting that the average single family annual tax bill in town is set to increase by $290.74, from $6,335.69 to $6,626.43.The town’s tax rate will actually DECREASE, from 14.41 to 13.75, but bills will rise due to a significant increase in property values. The average single family home value in Wilmington has SKYROCKETED by $42,249 in just one year, from $439,673 to $481,922.“We aren’t building new ranches in town. We’re now building $700,000-$800,000 colonials,” Principal Assessor Karen Rassias told the Board of Selectmen. “That affects what are average assessed value will be.”Rassias also noted that the debt exclusion for the new nigh school accounts for 3.74% ($247.82) of the average tax bill.As it does each year, the Board of Selectmen unanimously voted to approve a maximum tax classification shift of 1.75% per the recommendation of Rassias and the Wilmington Board of Assessors.“This is the most favorable scenario for the residential taxpayer,” explained Rassias.As a result of the shift, homeowners will only be responsible for 60.014% of the tax levy despite the fact that residential properties make up 77% of the town’s value. (Without any shift, the residential tax rate would increase to 17.68 and the average tax bill would rise by $2,608.78.)In comparing Wilmington’s residential taxes to all the other communities in Middlesex and Essex counties, Rassias pointed out that Wilmington has the 32nd lowest (“best”) ranking, out of the 82 cities and towns.“This is certainly one of the most important votes we take every year and, from my perspective, it’s one of the easiest,” responded Selectman Greg Bendel.  “Whatever we can do to lessen the burden on residents and shift that obligation to the commercial side.”“I’ve always supported the maximum tax shift on the commercial, which gives residents the most bang for their buck,” said Selectman Mike McCoy. “We don’t have user fees, school bus fees, or fees for trash.”“One thing I do hear over and over, however, is senior citizens and taxes,” continued McCoy. “I don’t know what we can do for these folks. The best I can tell them is that the value of their homes went up. I don’t have a magic answer, but I hear it a lot. I think it’s something, long-term, we need to think about.”Rassias encouraged seniors to apply for any and all exemptions they qualify for.Selectman Jonathan Eaton noted he would like to see the town and state make adjustments to the various exemptions’ thresholds so more seniors would qualify.

rejected across Igboland only resorted to using Kanu’s name to gain popularity The statement reads “Over the coming days and weeks Okezie Ikpeazu will be methodically and systematically shredded publicly for his blatant lies against our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu and the great IPOB movement he leads “It will be in his best interest and that of his Northern handlers to publish whatever material at his disposal that will lend credence to his assertions chiefly that our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu reneged on agreements reached with him and other South East governors during his interview granted to BBC Igbo Service in the Government House Umuahia “He must tell the world where when and with whom he met Nnamdi Kanu We will not allow him to get away with this bare-faced deceit and lies Lying has

respected and foremost constitutional lawyer Prof Ben Nwabueze was at the meeting between Nnamdi Kanu and Igbo governors which he Okezie Ikpeazu did not attend We ask between Okezie Ikpeazu and Prof Ben Nwabueze who has more credibility The truth about how Igbo governors and Nnia Nwodo out of petty envy and jealousy of the popularity and public acceptance of Nnamdi Kanu arranged for Hausa Fulani soldiers to use the cover of Operation Python Dance to assassinate him is well known to the world “Okezie Ikpeazu should keep his testimony and evidence with him because he will soon be called upon to give account of his role in the military invasion and abduction of Nnamdi Kanu and his parents from their home We are placing the world on notice that Okezie Ikpeazu have never met with our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu despite the fact that Umuahia government house sits on his ancestral land and his father the traditional ruler “Gov Okezie Ikpeazu is an unrepentant liar in the mould of other Igbo
