UK new van market up 41.0% in August, the strongest growth since April 2013.Medium and large van demand continues to drive growth, up by a third and almost half respectively.Year-to-date LCV market stays strong, up 11.3%, as buyers invest in latest, cleanest vehicles.SEE LCV REGISTRATIONS BY BRANDDOWNLOAD PRESS RELEASE AND DATA TABLEThe UK new light commercial vehicle (LCV) market rose in August, up 41.0%, according to the latest figures released today by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT). The market has grown in every month of 2019, with 23,120 new vehicles registered in August for use on UK roads, as operators respond to regulatory changes and take advantage of some compelling deals on the latest models available in what is usually one of the year’s smallest months.The only segment to have experienced a decline is 4x4s, down -34.7% in August, with pickups, small, medium and large vans all experiencing double-digit growth. Demand for small vans, weighing less than 2.0 tonnes was up 52.5%, with medium vans, weighing 2.0-2.5 tonnes and large vans, weighing 2.5-3.5 tonnes close behind, up 33.1% and 46.8% respectively. In the year-to-date the market is up 11.3% to 245,400 units.Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive, said,Another month of growth for the new van market is welcome news for the automotive sector as it faces multiple challenges simultaneously. It is important to remember, however, that any percentage increase will be on a much smaller volume market in August given it is arguably the quietest month of the year. Buyers continue to take advantage of deals on the latest and cleanest commercial vehicles on the market and it is important the business environment remains strong..

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act and Human Rights Training represents Brock University’s final training requirement for accessibility under the province’s law. It must be completed by all faculty and staff by the end of May.In 2010 when the Accessible Customer Service Standard was released, there came with it a requirement to train all staff on the issue of disability and access to goods and services. This was called the Accessible Service Tutorial and it has since been offered on the portal as a requirement for new employees.With the development of the Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation (IASR) there came a second training requirement that deals with the application of Human Rights, the AODA and Human Rights training. In order to meet our legal responsibility, this particular training was launched in 2015 on the SAKAI learning management system so it could be delivered quickly but also so that the training can be updated when required with relevant and timely information. Brock University is now responsible for the delivery of both the Accessible Service Tutorial and the AODA and Human Rights training, as one does not replace the other.The main purpose for conducting training of this sort is to start a discussion about creating a culture shift from viewing disability issues as strictly an accommodation issue to a positive aspect of diversity.If you have any questions regarding the training or would like to talk about accessibility on campus contact Christopher Lytle, AODA Co-ordinator at 905-688-5550 x5454 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
A photograph showing the damage to the side of Jason Little’s poolCredit:DorsetPolice/BNPS She said that the CCTV footage appeared to show Mr Gee carrying something heavy in his right hand as he approached the pool. In an apparent attempt to cover his tracks he then left a note in the Little’s porch, explaining how he had woken in the night to the sound of flowing water and found their garden flooded Mr Gee, who worked in the aviation industry for 25 years, pleaded not guilty to criminal damage, claiming that he had been woken up by his dog barking and had gone out to investigate when he noticed his garden was flooded.He claimed the pool was dilapidated and suggested it emptied after an old tear finally split.Finding Mr Gee guilty, district judge Stephen Nicholls said his evidence lacked consistency and logic.He said: “His account is not credible or believable and I am satisfied he entered the land and caused damage to the pool, causing water to escape.”Mr Gee, who has no previous convictions, was fined £500 and ordered to pay £650 prosecution costs and £250 compensation to Mr Little.Judge Nicholls also issued a restraining order banning Mr Gee from contacting the Littles for five years and from going onto the curtilage of their property.Speaking after the case Mr Little said: “He threatened my children and tried to tell them they were not allowed to use their own garden and said many times they were going to force us to leave. I’m just relieved the judge gave him a restraining order and he won’t be able to make nasty comments to my family anymore.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Disputes between neighbours over noise are not uncommon, but a rift in one Dorset village was so bitter it culminated in a man sabotaging a children’s swimming pool after growing fed up with the excited cries and laughter coming over the garden fence.Stephen Gee, 63, crept into his neighbour’s garden and cut a hole in the metal wall of the pool, causing 4,000 litres of water to gush out.The retired engineer was only caught because his neighbour, a decorated army officer, had installed a covert camera in the garden, capturing Mr Gee’s night-time raid.Jason Little, who won the Military Cross for displaying inspirational leadership in battle in Afghanistan in 2008, returned home after a few days away with his wife Avril to find their pool empty and their garden flooded.A court heard yesterday that when Mr Little reviewed the video from his hidden CCTV camera, he saw his hooded neighbour tiptoeing up his garden path at 4.30am, past his herbaceous border and towards his pool.Mr Gee, a retired engineer, was seen disappearing behind the 10 metre long pool for 16 seconds before re-emerging and sneaking back to his house. Stephen Gee outside Poole Magistrates, DorsetCredit:LeeMcLean/BNPS Poole Magistrates Court heard how the attack in June 2016 was the culmination of a four year dispute between the two neighbours over the noise made when the Little’s two daughters, then aged eight and 10, used the pool.Although the oval swimming pool was already in place when Mr Little and his wife moved into their large detached house in the village of Puxey in 2012 Mr Gee quickly took offence at their children using it.Mr Little, 46, told the court: “Whenever they used the swimming pool, they shouted over the fence at them and would play loud music and stare at them. Before we had CCTV things happened to the swimming pool that I couldn’t explain, so we had cameras installed to the rear of the property.”He said his children had not yet used the pool that summer, but that he had carried out maintenance so they could do so and that when he checked the pool before he left for the weekend the water level was full and there was no leak.PC Charlotte Goddard told the court that the wall of the pool looked as if it had been hit with something heavy and the cut was wider at one end, suggesting it had been struck with an axe blade or similar.

By Ryan Bailey Share722 Tweet Email2 Mar 2nd 2019, 8:01 AM “I have had some of the lowest lows especially with the passing of Axel but far more of the highest highs. I take the lows as positives as it has made me a stronger person and put perspective on my life.” Ian Keatley walks down the Thomond Park tunnel. Source: Billy Stickland/INPHOSWINGS AND ROUNDABOUTS, the highs and lows, the peaks and troughs. Nobody needs to tell Ian Keatley about them. His career chart contains more than most. The dark days were unimaginably dark. People — Munster fans — used to come up to him after matches and ask if he had ever practised kicking. They’d tweet him, too. It was relentless. And then there was December 2015, when Keatley endured the hardest, loneliest walk of all as his exit from Thomond Park was met by a chorus of boos from a small section of the ground. Voicing frustrations at the team is one thing, but this was on another level. A deeply personal level. It would be the end of most players, most careers. Imagine, that feeling. That hurt. That hopelessness. Keatley’s journey through the good and bad during eight years at Munster has been well documented. 1,247 points in 180 appearances in red, he is second on the province’s all-time top points list and is third on the list of the Pro14′s all-time points scorers with 1,428. There was far more good than bad. Yet, for one reason or another, some felt the need to voice their displeasure. Their disapproval. The abuse affected him — on and off the pitch — more than many knew, those so-called supporters completely oblivious to the pain their words and actions were causing. But for all the lonely car journeys with only his thoughts for company, for all the sleepless nights, for all the tears and for all the agony it caused Keatley’s close family and friends, the out-half has used it all — the good and the bad — to shape his perspective on rugby and on life. All for the better.Last month, he packed up his stuff and vacated the Munster locker he had made his own for the last eight years for the last time. No regrets, no bitterness. Just a career’s worth of memories, of happy memories. He left Limerick with far more than he arrived with back in 2011. “I talked to Lisa [his partner] about leaving and you make your decision but when it’s announced and you’re getting the well-wishes, it really hits home,” Keatley tells The42.“I’m not going to play for Munster ever again. You face that reality. There were a few tears leaving. I’ve given a quarter of my life to Munster.“Before I arrived there, I didn’t have a partner or a kid and now I have a family leaving there. Although it’s sad leaving, I’m taking so much with me and it has impacted my life so much. It has made me a better person.”Rewind the clock 12 months and Keatley’s revival was turning out to be one of the stories of the season. Not only had he regained the Munster number 10 jersey, but he was playing with a renewed confidence and swagger. Like the player he has always been. Keatley made 180 appearances for Munster. Source: Dan Sheridan/INPHOThere must have been few sweeter moments than December 2017 when, two years after he was greeted by ironic cheers as he made his way off against Leicester Tigers, Keatley produced an outstanding display of class and character against the same opposition to guide Munster to a big European win. A week later, he steered the province to another victory at Welford Road.Deep in the bowels of that iconic English rugby citadel, it was incredibly gratifying to hear a player who had been through the mill speak receive a hero’s welcome from the travelling Munster support. To respond and come back from all of that must have taken huge mental strength, and was a true measure of Keatley as a man and rugby player. “There has been a bit of media coverage about how the fans treated me that time but it is literally the 1%,” he continues. “I cannot speak highly of the other 99% of the people I’ve encountered in Munster and talking to them on the street, they are so genuinely friendly and so nice to me and my family.”Despite establishing himself as Johann van Graan’s first-choice out-half last season as Munster fell at the semi-final hurdle in both the Pro14 and Champions Cup, Keatley’s fortunes were to change dramatically over the course of the summer. From despair to redemption and back again. The arrival of Joey Carbery from Leinster saw him drop down the pecking order and it became clear quite quickly that Keatley was not going to see as much game-time this term than his 24 appearances in red during the 2017/18 campaign.Although training as hard as ever and enjoying the benefits of a more relaxed and confident approach, allowing him to rebound from errors or missed kicks if they happened, Keatley failed to start a game for Munster this season and was confined to just four appearances off the bench. He was out of Van Graan’s plans and behind Carbery, JJ Hanrahan, Bill Johnston and the fit-again Tyler Bleyendaal in the out-half department. “Yeah, extremely frustrating,” he admits. “Coming from last season where I started 17 games and played two Autumn internationals for Ireland. “To just four sub appearances, mentally it was very tough. You’re there trying to figure out what you’ve done wrong and it was tough. The last game I started for Munster was that semi-final [defeat to Racing] in France and obviously, it didn’t go the best that day for me or the team.“For that to be my last start, all you want to do is get back out on the pitch and prove you still have it. I even felt I did that with a few of my appearances off the bench. You’re training hard and when you’re not getting chances, you can see what’s going to happen and that’s why I had to take a bit of control.”As hard as that decision was, Keatley faced up to the reality of having to leave Munster to further his career. There were tears and conversations with his partner Lisa before they both agreed that moving on and seeking a new challenge was the best, and only, option. Four appearances off the bench this season led to frustration. Source: Dan Sheridan/INPHOOut of contract at Munster this summer, Keatley is honest enough to know the likelihood of having his terms extended by the province were extremely slim and he had to take control of the situation, particularly now that he has a young family to provide for.While initially signing a deal to join Italian club Benetton next season, Keatley was then handed the opportunity to seek game-time at London Irish on a short-term deal until the end of the current campaign. His exit from Munster was brought forward a couple of months and, suddenly, that was it. The end.“Rugby players are just like anyone else. We have our own families to look after, we have bills to pay, a lot of us have mortgages to pay. Sometimes people can forget we’re only trying to make a living and we know we only have 10 years.“You have to look after yourself a bit and the decision to leave Munster, I just saw an opportunity to get back out there and keep doing what I love. Because I don’t know what was going to happen with Munster, the way it was looking, I didn’t start one game this season.“Common sense comes into it, you’re probably not going to be offered a contract or if you are, it might be just a one year deal with less money. You have to weigh up these things and that’s what I did.“I looked at Treviso and a few of their games, even talking to their head coach [Kieran Crowley] and seeing the players they have. It turned out to be a no-brainer in terms of my own career, making sure my own family are looked after and that Dad has a job and can provide for the family.At the end of the day, obviously I love rugby, but I had to make sure my family are supported. That’s my number one priority.The reaction to Keatley’s departure reflected his popularity among the majority of the Munster support base as well as the wider Irish rugby community, and the impact he had made at the club having arrived from Connacht via Leinster and Belvedere College. “It was hard,” he continues. “But I knew it was the right move. I had to look at the bigger picture and then the reaction was overwhelming. I was blown away, so touched by the messages. “But that’s what kind of annoyed me as well. Maybe I had one or two bad games and sometimes I felt people remembered the bad games I played, rather than the good games I played. The reaction I got when I was leaving kind of showed me people did appreciate me when I was there and sometimes you can lose sight of that when you’re in the bubble and it’s all based on winning trophies.“That’s the frustrating part of it. We always tend to focus on the negatives when they’re only actually a small percent of it. There are so many good things and that’s what I want to take from leaving Munster. Keatley celebrates his man-of-the-match performance against Leicester last season. Source: Tommy Dickson/INPHO“One or two games didn’t go the way I want, yes, but 95% of the time I was at Munster, I couldn’t have been happier. And that’s what I’m taking from it because there are so many bad things you can give out about. The good stuff always outweighs the bad stuff.”The birth of Keatley’s first child, Beth, in September 2017 changed his outlook and relationship with rugby. As did the untimely passing of Anthony Foley and the profound sense of loss felt by all at Munster Rugby at the time. A softened attitude, a sense of perspective, and at 31, experience had taught him how to deal with everything — both the good and bad — that was thrown at him. And so, even with having to leave his home and the club he loves, Keatley sees the good in the situation. Moving to London and then Treviso presents new, exciting opportunities for him and his family, both on and off the rugby pitch. Lisa and Beth have remained in Limerick for the time being and the Keatleys will then make the move over to Italy as a family later this year, but for now the seven-time capped Ireland international is focused on giving his all for London Irish.He made a try-scoring debut for the English club a fortnight ago but unfortunately his afternoon was cut short when sustaining a nasty bang to the head, but Keatley has recovered to start for Irish against London Scottish at the Madejski Stadium this afternoon.“I needed to play games,” he says. “I wanted to be prepared going over to Benetton and after weighing up the pros and cons, myself and Lisa agreed it was a good move. It is difficult because I’ve left my family for a month now. They have been over [to London] and I’m making an effort to get home to see them too but it’ll be a tough three months in that sense. “In fairness to Declan Kidney, he has helped me a lot with getting time off to get home without missing training and it’s great having Lisa and Beth visit London as there is so much to do here.”For now, Keatley’s sole focus is on helping his new club consolidate their position at the top of the Championship and get across the line to earn promotion back to the Premiership at the first time of asking. Former Leinster centre Brendan Macken also starts for the Exiles today while there are strong Irish links through director of rugby Kidney and head coach Les Kiss. “I’m completely out of my comfort zone as all I’ve known is the Irish system but it exactly what my career needed,” Keatley says ahead of today’s Championship clash. “I may only be here for three months but I want to make an impact, to make an impression.” Keatley says he will always cherish the European occasions at Thomond. Source: Gary Carr/INPHOAttention will then turn to a new chapter in Italy. Benetton are making huge strides under Kiwi Crowley and Keatley has been impressed by the club’s progress, while hearing good things from his London Irish team-mate, Luke McClean who has had two separate stints with Treviso. Keatley is under no illusions that he will arrive there and walk into the team given Tommaso Allan and Ian McKinley are already in competition for the 10 jersey, but he is relishing the challenge and the potential of a completely fresh start.He adds: “I wrote down the pros and cons of moving to Benetton after the option came up. The pros far outweighed the cons and as hard as it was to make that decision to actually leave Munster, it turned out to be a no-brainer really.“It’s an exciting time for Italian rugby and I can’t wait for the challenge. I’m actually taking Italian lessons at the moment which is fun. That’s all part of it. A new life for my family and it’s pretty exciting.”We can’t finish up without looking back on eight years at Munster and reflecting on some of the standout memories, as hard as that will be for a player who was such an integral part of the province for so long. There were too many highlights to go through here, but some remain more vivid in the mind than others. See Keatley’s match-winning drop-goal against Sale Sharks back in 2014, undoubtedly one of his best days in Munster red. Or simply those big European occasions at fortress Thomond. “I’ve never felt that rush of excitement before,” he smiles, looking back on a whirlwind experience.But as a team, winning a European match at Thomond Park. Jesus, it was just incredible. I know now it will be very hard to match that feeling ever again, when you have 26,000 people roaring at you. I’ll always cherish that and remember those days. They were special. “I had a few lows at Munster but, jeez, definitely the positives completely outweigh them. 95% of my time at Munster was very special and, do you know what? I wouldn’t change one thing about the whole experience as it has made me a better person.”Subscribe to our new podcast, The42 Rugby Weekly, here: https://the42.ie/4518673 Subscribe Short URL 41,320 Views Saturday 2 Mar 2019, 8:00 AM 41 Comments ‘I wouldn’t change one thing about my time at Munster.

Mediator : le médicament est responsable de plus de 500 mortsLe remède contre le diabète a causé, en France, la mort de plus de 500 personnes et entraîné 3.500 hospitalisations entre 1976 et 2009, selon une étude de la Caisse nationale d’assurance maladie (Cnam), présentée hier.Une saisine de l’Agence française de sécurité sanitaire des produits de santé (Afssaps) avait demandé aux médecins de la Cnam d’évaluer le nombre de décès et d’hospitalisations liés directement ou indirectement au Mediator. Il apparaît que ce médicament, indiqué chez les diabétiques en surcharge pondérale, est responsable de 500 à 1.000 décès en France.À lire aussiAntihistaminique : qu’est-ce que c’est ?

Boson de Higgs : les avancées du CERN enthousiasment les scientifiquesMercredi, les chercheurs du CERN ont présenté leurs résultats stupéfiants et attestant de la découverte d’un nouveau boson. Une nouvelle qui a créé un vent de joie parmi la communauté scientifique.Moins de 24 heures après l’officialisation de la découverte d’un nouveau boson par les équipes CMS et ATLAS du CERN, la communauté scientifique s’emballe. A sa tête, Peter Higgs, papa du boson portant son nom : “Je suis très surpris qu’on ait trouvé ça de mon vivant. Quand j’ai fait mon modèle, il y a plus de quarante ans, on ne savait pas du tout où chercher”.Interviewé par le quotidien suisse Le Matin, Aurelio Bay, du Laboratoire de Physique des Hautes Energies à l’Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) explique : “Comme on ne connaissait pas sa masse, on ne savait pas où le chercher. En plus, nous n’étions pas sûrs de nous ! Sa découverte est donc une victoire. Elle représente un véritable jalon dans l’histoire de la physique, un pivot autour duquel les chercheurs vont pouvoir angler leurs travaux. C’est un peu comme lorsque Newton a établi la loi universelle de la gravitation au 17e siècle”. Il ajoute également : “C’est aussi incroyable sur le plan humain, car plus de 10.000 chercheurs du monde entier ont ainsi montré qu’ils pouvaient unir leurs efforts pour parvenir à ce résultat”. Alice Bean, professeur de physique et d’astronomie à l’Université du Kansas qui a participé à l’élaboration de CMS, lui donne d’ailleurs raison : “L’un des aspects les plus grisants [a été] de travailler ensemble dans un grand groupe pour étudier des processus complexes”. La “particule de Dieu” ou quelque chose d’encore plus grand ?Anne-Isabelle Etienvre est physicienne au Commissariat à l’énergie atomique (CEA) et travaille sur ATLAS. Pour elle, il s’agit dans tous les cas “d’une avancée majeure pour la recherche fondamentale” qui pourrait marquer la fin d’un chapitre : “Si c’est [le] boson [de Higgs], c’est la fin d’une histoire. La découverte valide […] une fois pour toute le Modèle standard. Si, en revanche, c’est encore une autre particule, cela nous permet d’explorer des pistes nouvelles, de faire des recherches pendant des années”.Yves Sirois, l’un des porte-parole de l’expérience CMS, renchérit pour sa part : “C’est peut-être le boson de Higgs qu’on a trouvé, aujourd’hui on a peut-être compris comment la matière a pu s’organiser au début de l’univers, un millième de milliardième de seconde après le Big Bang [ou] c’est peut-être quelque chose de beaucoup plus grand qui ouvre la fenêtre d’une nouvelle théorie au-delà du Modèle standard”. À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Aurelio Bay estime quant-à-lui que “La découverte pourrait ouvrir la voie à une nouvelle physique, notamment en ce qui concerne la matière noire ou l’énergie noire. Car la matière visible ne représente que 4% de l’énergie de tout l’univers”. “Il y a une conséquence philosophique à cette découverte”Pour Etienne Klein, directeur de recherche au CEA, interrogé par FRANCE 24 : “Il y a une conséquence philosophique [à cette découverte]”. D’ailleurs, la détection du boson intéresse aussi les grands philosophes contemporains. En effet, l’astrophysicien et philosophe Hubert Reeves estime que même si cette découverte “n’aura pas un impact sur toute la pensée humaine comme celle de Galilée”, “c’est un grand moment pour la physique”. Elle “ne modifiera vraisemblablement pas notre compréhension du monde” mais “elle confirme celle que nous avons déjà dans le cadre du comportement de la matière et c’est déjà beaucoup”.Pour le philosophe, historien des sciences et théologien Jacques Arnould, la découverte du boson “ajoute encore à deux sentiments sans cesse confortés et renouvelés au sein du grand public : l’étonnement et le vertige”. Il considère que, face à ce “vertige”, on peut “s’interroger avec fierté et responsabilité sur les raisons de notre singularité d’être humain, pensant, qui a une conscience de lui-même et cherche à savoir”. Jacques Arnould conclut également : “Nous ne sommes ni plus près, ni plus loin de Dieu qu’hier. Nous sommes dans une époque extraordinaire en terme de construction d’un savoir collectif sur ce qui nous constitue, dans lequel pour une fois on ne se fait pas la guerre”.Le 5 juillet 2012 à 14:49 • Maxime Lambert
The Hyundai Veloster N is an absolute blast to drive, but the version modified for series racing looks like it’ll be even wilder.Hyundai introduced its new Veloster N TCR race car at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show. It’s meant to compete in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge, which was renamed from the Continental Tire SportsCar Challenge after the title sponsors swapped at the end of 2018. The Veloster N will race in the touring car (TCR) class, one of two classes in the series.Under the hood is a Hyundai Motorsport 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 gas engine. It’s good for 350 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque, which is 75 hp and 72 lb-ft more powerful than the road-legal Veloster N. Power heads to the front wheels through a six-speed sequential transmission and a mechanical differential. Enlarge ImageIt’ll look a little different when raced, since it’ll be littered with sponsor stickers and other liveries. Steven Pham/Roadshow The Veloster N TCN shares approximately 85 percent of its main components with the i30 N TCR touring car in Europe, including the engine. Both are manufactured in Germany, at Hyundai Motorsport’s headquarters. Hyundai wanted to make sure its race cars closely matched what was on offer at the dealer, and the Veloster N TCR fills in the market gaps where the i30 isn’t offered for sale, including the US.The exterior is properly bonkers, with some massive fender flares over each wheel, aggressive aerodynamics on the bumpers and a honkin’ wing out back, connected at the center of the liftgate. Inside, it’s decked out with competition seats, six-point harnesses with HANS compatibility and a configurable driver’s display. As expected, there’s a steel roll cage in there, too, since it wouldn’t be legal to race without one.The Hyundai Veloster N TCR will make its racing debut in a four-hour race at Daytona International Speedway on Jan. 25. Groups who want to race these cars will have to plunk down 135,000 euro (about $155,000) for the honor. Teams running this car in the US will receive assistance and support (and, perhaps most importantly, tires) from Bryan Herta Autosport.

Mark Begich isn’t conceding and it’s likely the race won’t be decided until next week.Download AudioRepublican Dan Sullivan was ahead by almost 4 percentage points at the end of election night. He thanked his volunteers and told them he wasn’t making a victory speech.“Door Knocking! Phone Calls! You guys made it happen!” Sullivan said, to loud cheers.Begich went home before midnight, saying he’s hopeful his massive outreach in rural Alaska will pay off. Jim Lottsfeldt ran a $10 million superPAC supporting Begich. He maintains the uncounted early and absentee votes will break their way.“Oh it’s not over,” Lottsfeldt said, echoing the senator’s words to supporters from a few minutes before. “Begich has never had a result that was good for him on election night. It always goes down to the wire. I think in about 10 days when all the votes are counted, we’ll see. “All precincts had reported by early this morning. More than 22,000 ballots remain uncounted, and more are arriving in the mail. But with Sullivan ahead by more than 8,000 votes, the uncounted ballots would have to favor Begich by a huge margin if he’s to stay in office.In a written statement before all the precincts reported, the Begich campaign said the Democrat would make a statement about the race after all the villages had reported “and when the number of outstanding absentee and questioned ballots is clear.”

Varinder Chawla/TwitterBoth the fraternity of Indian cricket fans as well as that of Bollywood lovers are keenly awaiting the arrival of the movie ’83 on the silver screen. This movie, based on Indian cricket team’s memorable triumph in the 1983 cricket World Cup, will have the current Bollywood heartthrob Ranveer Singh essaying the role of Indian cricket legend and captain of that victorious team, Kapil Dev.The cast to play the entire Indian team has been finalised and the actors have appeared together on various occasions. But now, a new name has joined the group and he is bound to make the prospect of the movie even more appealing to the fans. According to movie critic Taran Adarsh, Boman Irani, known for playing memorable roles in movies such as ‘Munnabhai MBBS’ and ‘3 Idiots,’ would play the flamboyant former Indian wicketkeeper and batsman Farokh Engineer.Irani playing Engineer makes sense as both men belong to the Parsi community. The former cricketer had been a commentator for BBC during the 1983 World Cup. His character would, perhaps, provide a unique vantage point to India’s journey to the title.This movie, which is slated for release on April 10, 2020, is being produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and Madhu Mantena as well as the wife of the lead star and leading Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone. The director of the movie is Kabir Khan.Boman Irani to enact the part of Farokh Engineer in #83TheFilm… Stars Ranveer Singh as #KapilDev… Directed by Kabir Khan… 10 April 2020 release. #Relive83 pic.twitter.com/aiixjLYoOv— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) August 27, 2019 Apart from Ranveer Singh, other actors in this cinematic adaptation of Indian cricket team’s triumph include Deepika herself as Kapil Dev’s wife Romi Bhatia, Tahir Raj Bhasin as Sunil Gavaskar, Saqib Saleem as Mohinder Amarnath and Sahil Khattar as Syed Kirmani.Other prominent actors in the movie are Pankaj Tripathi as Indian team’s PR manager Man Singh, Jiiva as Krishnamachari Srikanth, Ammy Virk as Balwinder Singh Sandhu, Harry Sandhu as Madan Lal, Chirag Patil as Sandeep Patil, Jatin Sarna as Yashpal Sharma and Adinath Kothare as Dilip Vengasarkar.While Farokh Engineer wasn’t part of the team that won the 1983 World Cup, his colourful personality would ensure that Irani has a lot to play with in the movie. Before retiring from the game, Engineer enjoyed considerable success as wicketkeeper-batsman in the Indian side.He played 46 Tests and scored 2611 runs at an average of 31.08. Many of his runs came while opening the innings. The last Parsi cricketer to represent India, Engineer scored two hundreds including a famous one against West Indies at Chennai (then Madras) in the 1966/67 season where he scored 94 runs in the first session itself.As wicket-keeper, Engineer effected 16 stumpings and took 66 catches. He also holds the distinction of being the first Indian to be chosen as a brand ambassador for Brylcreem and therefore become the first Indian ‘Brylcreem boy.’ Certainly, most fans can’t wait to see Boman Irani bring the character of young Engineer alive.
BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi. Prothom Alo File PhotoThe Bangladesh Nationalist Party on Friday alleged that prime minister Sheikh Hasina herself is creating barriers towards ensuring a level-playing field by ‘violating’ the electoral code of conduct.”Isn’t the retired army officers’ commitment to working for Awami League at Ganabhaban in presence of the prime minister a violation of the electoral code of conduct?”, asked BNP senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi.Speaking at a press conference at the party’s Naya Paltan central office, he mentioned over 150 retired army officers met prime minister Sheikh Hasina at Ganabhaban on Tuesday and promised to work for ensuring Awami League’s victory.Rizvi alleged that the prime minister’s such activities using Ganabhaban and enjoining all government facilities are making the election controversial.The BNP leader also said Sheikh Hasina’s such ‘illegal’ activities have demonstrated that the government is again moving on to hold a one-sided and voter-less election.Rizvi alleged that the prime minister on Tuesday made ‘indecent and provocative’ remarks against BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia, its acting chairman Tarique Rahman and the top most leader of the Jatiya Oikya Front.”She can’t make such statements after the announcement of the election schedule. The prime minister violated the code of conduct with her offensive comments.”He said Hasina also took interviews of Awami League’s nomination seekers at Ganabhaban, held a meeting with returning officers, and worked out plans with ministers and MPs at Ganabhaban to ensure her party’s victory in a ‘lopsided election’.The BNP leader alleged that though they lodged written complaints with the election commission (EC) about the violation of the code of conduct by the prime minister, it still did not take any action against her.He said the election commission is providing the government all-out cooperation in holding a stage-managed election.Rizvi urged the EC to exercise its constitutional authorities to ‘restore’ people’s ‘lost’ voting rights. “We hope you will take prompt action against the prime minister for violating the electoral code of conduct, and take steps for creating a proper election atmosphere.”
IBM’s been busy. A couple weeks back they unveiled a new line of neural computing chips that try to mimic the kinds of connections found in the brain. It could unleash incredible new leaps in parallel computing and revolutionize artificial intelligence. Samsung, it seems, wanted to leverage that new processing power as soon as possible. The electronics giant announced this week that they’ve been working on an image processor that can record in 2,000 frames per second.The processor, which IBM dubs TrueNorth, uses 4,096 separate processing cores to form one standard chip. Each of them can operate independently and are designed for low power consumption. Samsung hopes that the chip will help with visual pattern recognition — something our brains excel at. As such, they’ve incorporated their image sensor and a TrueNorth chip into a gesture recognition system which is already performing spectacularly well.This works because each pixel on the sensor operates independently and only reports changes it sees, much like a compressed video. That means it requires a fraction of the processing power and resources most cameras need. With less overhead, Samsung can push the sensor to record much, much faster — almost ten times that of a standard, 250 fps high-speed camera.Samsung wants to use the tech for safety features for autonomous cars or more advanced gesture recognition. The insanely high speed of the camera could allow it to detect much subtler changes than modern systems. Being able to improve the responsiveness of an automated vehicle with faster systems is also a top priority.It’s just one more example of how we’re already living in the future.
Pre-running exercises help in increasing the blood flow to the muscles, reducing their stiffness and loosening them for better running, while post-running exercises help the body cool down and improve flexibility and performance, say experts. 4Hip flexor stretch: Stand tall.

Among the many tribes around the world that use tattooing as part of their traditions are the indigenous Tharu people in the Chitwan District of Nepal. Both men and women are tattooed but the women are way more covered with tattoos than the men. Since 2011, the estimated population of Tharu was around 1.7 million. They are agriculturalists and hunters who practice Hinduism.The last tattooed women of the Tharu tribe. Photo Courtesy Omar RedaThese people thrived in isolation in the Himalayan forests and managed to keep the many varieties of their indigenous language.However, naturally, the Tharu people face modernization and loss of their traditions. The practice of tattooing seems to be disappearing as it is only the older generation who proudly show their tattoos.One of the last tattooed Tharu tribe women. Photo Courtesy Omar RedaAn important practice of Tharu heritage is dying out, but, through a twist of fate, it has been eternalized by the camera of photographer Omar Reda.Reda is a Lebanese graphic designer and creative director whose passion is photography. He had been preparing for a photography project trip to Tibet but was denied a visa — forced to make a last-minute change of plans, Reda decided to travel to Nepal instead.The last tattooed women of the Tharu tribe. Photo Courtesy Omar RedaOn his visit to Nepal, Reda discovered the fascinating tattooed Tharu tribeswomen and their stories.He heard many different stories about the history of the tattooing practice. One was that during the 240-year reign of the Kingdom of Nepal (which ended in 2008), it was customary for the royal family to spend the summer months in the Chitwan area.The last tattooed women of the Tharu tribe. Photo Courtesy Omar RedaTo amuse themselves, they used to forcibly take young girls from the Tharu tribe and use them as sex slaves. In order to prevent these abductions and disturbance of their peaceful lives, the Tharu people started tattooing young girls. Their intention was to deform their appearance so that they would be unattractive to the abductors.Another story told to Reda was that the tattooing practice was mandatory for the women in the Tharu tribe. By not having tattoos, women risked being exiled from the community.The last tattooed women of the Tharu tribe. Photo Courtesy Omar RedaThe regulations went so far that it was forbidden for people to touch or take anything that a woman without a tattoo had previously touched. Escaping the practice equaled social death, so all girls went through the painful process of covering their bodies with ink.The last tattooed women of the Tharu tribe. Photo Courtesy Omar RedaThe third version is that tattoos were a symbol of beauty. The women were tattooed to magnify their beauty so that when they die, they would reach heaven in their most beautiful appearance.Today, tattooing has a more modernized aspect, meaning that every individual chooses whether they will express themselves through words, symbols, or art tattooed on their bodies. In fact, today Nepal is known as one of the best destinations to get inked.The last tattooed women of the Tharu tribe.
