Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionEvery year, thousands of people set out to make a New Year’s resolution. Here is a different thought and a different direction we should all try. Instead of giving up chocolate, fatty foods or maybe something as little as how much television we watch, let’s try a different approach. Let’s just give. We can get caught up in our busy schedules and at times lose our focus on what is really important. Let us take the time to think of all who are around us. Even if it’s something as simple as holding a door open, picking up something that someone has dropped, or just being polite by saying hello, there are all kinds acts that can make a difference in a person’s day. When we go home, let us think of our husbands, wives, children, parents or whoever else may be there. Instead of having our own favorite meal, maybe we could consider what others might like instead. Another nice gesture would be to clean up after dinner instead of having someone else do the task. I could list a hundred different ideas on what kind of thoughtful acts we could perform, but that’s up to the individual.The important thing is to think of others. Do no wait, because there’s going to be a time when our loved ones will not always be here. So during the new year, put others first and remember that it’s much better to give than to receive.Sean DefresneAmsterdamMore from The Daily Gazette:Foss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidation
Denmark-based shipping company Hafnia Tankers has completed two sale and leaseback transactions with a Sole Shipping fund.The vessels included in the deal with the company’s business arm, Skaatholmen Shipping, are the 2010-built LR1 tankers, Hafnia Asia and Hafnia Arctic.The vessels have been sold to Skaatholmen Shipping with a seven-year bareboat charter back with annual purchase options from year two onwards and a purchase obligation in year seven.Hafnia Tankers informed that the transaction entailed a sale of the vessels at market value and a fully levered lease arrangement which gives rise to a positive liquidity effect of around USD 19 million and “further adds to the already strong cash position”.The profile of the lease arrangement allows Hafnia to abide by its policy of maintaining a low cash-breakeven. The company said that the transaction has been finalized and the ships have been handed over to the lessor.

THE last six months have been a difficult time for Sarfaraz Ahmed. He was sacked as the captain from the T20I and Test squad.Though, there has not been any announcement regarding his ODI spot. There have been rumours that T20I captain Babar Azam could also take over as the ODI captain.The recent reports though suggest that the wicketkeeper-batsman could be demoted from ‘A’ category in annual contracts to category ‘C’.The official list will be announced by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) in August. According to the details, the Board would also reduce the central contract retainers or match fees of the players. This could be called strange as all cricket matches have been suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.In 2019, the PCB decided to omit many players from the list of centrally contracted players. The list had only 19 players been centrally contracted with the Board. In 2018, 32 players had received central contracts.Last year, Sarfaraz Ahmed was in the ‘A’ category alongside Babar Azam and Yasir Shah. When the list was announced last year, the Champions Trophy-winning skipper was still leading the national side in all three formats.“Sarfaraz has been demoted to category C in the new contracts as he is presently not a member of the playing side,” a PCB source said as quoted by Times Now.In November, right before Pakistan’s tour of Australia, the wicketkeeper-batsman was dropped from the squad for the T20Is and Tests. Azhar Ali was chosen as the Test skipper while Azam was handed over the reins of the T20I side.The new list of contracted players is being finalised by a committee that includes PCB CEO, Wasim Khan, Director International Cricket Operations, Zakir Khan and the head coach and chief selector, Misbah-ul-Haq.In the current contracts laid down by the PCB, the Test match fees are Rs 762,300 for Category A players, Rs 665,280 for Category B and Rs 568,260 for Category C players.The sources have also revealed that Abid Ali might get promoted to Category B alongside his opening partner in Tests, Shan Masood. Fast bowler Hasan Ali could lose his contract. (CricTracker)
COMMENT Written By WATCH US LIVE National champion Ankit Khatana (75kg) and rising star Kalaivani Srinivasan (48kg) led India to six boxing gold medals even as World Championships bronze medallist Manish Kaushik settled for a silver medal at the 13th South Asian Games on Monday. In men’s category, Vinod Tanwar (49kg), Sachin (56kg), and Gaurav Chauhan (91kg) were the others who finished on top, while Parveen (60kg) was the other woman pugilist to take the gold for India.READ | Steve Smith Admits To Copying Kane Williamson And Reveals Nervousness Ahead Of Perth TestTanwar thrashes Wangodi 5-0In the men’s 49kg final, Bhutan’s Tashi Wangdi proved no match for Tanwar, who easily cruised to a 5-0 win. Sachin was equally impressive and hardly broke a sweat against Bangladesh’s Mia Md Robin in 56kg, soaring to a win by the same scoreline. Khatana was unstoppable and stamped his authority over Sri Lanka’s Dinesh Maduranga Don Pathirage in the middleweight summit clash on his way to a commanding 5-0 victory. Gaurav Chauhan faced some stiff resistance from Pakistan’s Sanaullah early on in their 91kg face-off but was soon able to find his punches that helped him notch up a 4-1 win. While his compatriots performed up to the expectations, it was Manish Kaushik’s 64kg final loss that was the biggest surprise for the entire contingent. READ | Wasim Jaffer Becomes First Indian To Play 150 Ranji MatchesKaushik was at his menacing best throughout the tournament but was outdone by Nepal’s Bhupendra Thapa, who recorded a huge 5-0 upset win. “Today man of the match goes to Vinod Tanwar in my view, opponent was a rough puncher. He took him very easy by step back punch and sidestep punch and won the match by 5:0. “Manish’s opponent was very rough and he received 1 or 3 clear punches. It was unfortunate but this tournament was definitely a good experience for him,” said India’s men’s boxing chief coach, CA Kuttappa. The women, in contrast, had to fight hard for the gold. One of the most promising talents, Kalaivani showed her resilience in her 3-2 victory over Nepal’s Maharjan Lalita in 48kg. Parveen too showed her guts and gumption in a brave 3-2 triumph over Nepal’s Sunar Sangita in 60kg but 2017 Asian Championship bronze medallist Shiksha bowed out 0-5 to Minu Gurung of Nepal in 54kg.On Tuesday, Vikas Krishan (69kg), Narender (+91kg), Sparsh (52kg), Varinder (60kg) will be aiming for the gold from the men, while Pinki Rani (51kg), Sonia Lather (57kg), and Manju Bamboriya (64kg) will be hoping for a top-podium finish in women’s category.
