first_imgThe Environment Pollution (Prevention and Control) Authority declared a public health emergency in the Capital as pollution levels entered the ‘severe plus’ category in the early hours of Friday.According to the official data provided by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), the overall AQI score of Delhi was 504 at 3.30 a.m. on Friday after which alarm bells were sounded. The average AQI score of Delhi recorded at 4.30 p.m., which is the average of 32 monitoring stations in the past 24 hours, was 484, in the ‘severe’ category. AQI readings Noida, Ghaziabad, Faridabad, Greater Noida and Gurugram had AQI scores of 499, 496, 479, 496 and 469 respectively, all in the ‘severe’ category. In a letter to chief secretaries of Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh, EPCA chairman Bhure Lal said: “The air quality in Delhi and NCR deteriorated further last night and is now at the ‘severe plus level’. We have to take this as a public heath emergency as it will have adverse health impacts on all, particularly our children.” He added that construction activities in Delhi, Faridabad, Gurugram, Ghaziabad, Noida and Greater Noida will not be allowed till November 5 morning. Mr. Lal said the deterioration in air quality is due to a combination of accumulated toxins because of local pollution, further spiked by bursting of crackers on Deepavali, stubble burning and extremely adverse weather conditions. He added that the India Meteorological Department has said that the weather will improve in the coming days, but it is difficult to say if it would lead to any substantial reduction in pollution levels. An urgent meeting of the CPCB was also convened during which it was discussed that stubble burning contribution to pollution has gone up to 45%, resulting in the current high particulate matter concentration. The agency advised people to minimise their outdoor activities during the period. Meanwhile, there has been an increase in the number of people complaining of respiratory problems post-Deepavali. Arvind Aggarwal, senior consultant, internal medicine, Sri Balaji Action Medical Institute, said: “We have witnessed a rise in the number of people reporting to hospitals with respiratory and eye problems. An increase of 20%-22% patients has been seen in the OPD. People are facing symptoms associated with pollution like irritation in the eyes and throat, dry skin, skin allergies, chronic cough and breathlessness. We recommend asthmatic patients, elderly and kids should stay at home.”last_img read more

first_imgJust a day after the Chinese received applause for their innovation and precision at the opening ceremony of the Asian Games, the tech-savvy Chinese proved they can also be prone to errors.The opening day of the weightlifting competition at the distant Dong Guang gymnasium saw several glitches interrupting the men’s and women’s programmes. Nevertheless, they went off peacefully with the Chinese showing their supremacy in both the sections.But it was not just about the glitches at the gymnasium. Even before that the scribes had to go through some ordeals, including the one-and-half-a-hour ride to the gymnasium. The 88-kilometre trip from the main media centre to the venue was not the only issue. After the two easy group events where the Indians participated, one had to wait for nearly six hours for the other group events before the results could be known.Then, there was the real issue of how to return to the main media centre. With just two trips – one at 1:30 pm and the second at 10 pm – the ordeal of a scribe was complete.To make matters worse, an unnecessary euphoria was created back home just after the Group B results where both India’s V Srinivasa Rao (56kg) and women’s 48kg lifters Soniya Chanu and Sandhya Rani Devi finished atop their respective groupsRao topped Group B Soniya and Sandhya upped the ante so much that there were scores of calls from several Indian journalists covering other disciplines at different venues.The ground reality was, however, different. In fact, the Indian duo was lucky to find themselves in an easy group where they had to contend only with a Vietnamese and a Bangladeshi. Naturally, Soniya did what was expected of her with a total lift of 170kg (75+95) while Sandhya was just behind her with a total lift of 158kg, giving rise to further hopes.advertisementThe status remained static for six hours until Group A lifters emerged on the scene. Without much ado, the Chinese and North Korean lifters in the men’s section finished one-two while Chinese and Taipei lifters took the gold and silver in the women’s section, pushing the Indians way behind.Sandhya perhaps knew the results even before a few of us. “I have done my best and I am happy. But the Chinese and Thai lifters are too good,” she said before disappearing from the scene quickly.- By S. KannanWomen thrash Malaysia 4-0 in opening hockey matchIndias Jasjeet Kaur Handa (left) tackles a Malaysian player during their Group A match in Guangzhou on Saturday.The Indian women’s hockey team outclassed Malaysia 4-0 in their opening Group A match to start their Asian Games campaign on a rousing note at the Aoti Hockey Field in Guangzhou on Saturday. The feature of the victory was that all the strikes were field goals.The 2006 bronze medalists and 1982 gold medal winners led 1-0 at half time before pumping in three more goals in the second period to complete the rout. Thokchom Chanchan Devi (26th minute), Deepika Thakur (43rd), Rani Rampal (53rd) and captain Surinder Kaur (67th) were the goal scorers.India will play Japan in their next group match on November 16. Against Malaysia, India were by far the better side on display under lights as they controlled the game for the entire 70 minutes.After having the better of the play, India took the lead when Chanchan Devi slotted home the ball after receiving a pass from strike partner Rani, who dribbled her way past two defenders to set it up for Chanchan.After the breather, the Indians were right on the attack and kept the pressure on the rival goal through Rani and Deepika. It was Deepika who doubled the lead after receiving a Jasjeet Kaur Handa pass from the baseline. Rani then made it 3-0 10 minutes later after cleverly wrongfooting Malaysia goalkeeper Yahya Farah Ayuni.The Malaysians could have pulled one back but the woodwork came to India’s rescue in the 57th minute off a penalty corner before Surinder sealed the victory for her side three minutes from the hooter.Assistant coach Khalid Modi expressed happiness over the positive start but added that the team management was taking it match by match. “It is a very good start as the Malaysians are very tough opponents. We have crossed our first hurdle, but cannot be complacent,” he said.In the day’s other matches, South Korea drubbed Thailand 5-0 while Japan overwhelmed Kazakhstan 4-1.Indians crash out despite Saina and Kashyap’s heroics Saina Nehwal and Parupalli Kashyap’s fine victories came to nought as the Indian women and men’s teams lost to Indonesia and Chinese Taipei respectively in the team championships at the Asian Games on Saturday.advertisementIn the women’s tie, India squandered a 2-0 lead before losing 2-3. It was Saina who gave India a winning start by beating Adriyanti Firdasari 21- 16, 21-17 in the first singles in just 30 minutes. Jwala Gutta and Ashwini Ponappa consolidated the lead by beating Greysia Polli and Meiliana Jauhari 21-17 17-21 23-21 in 44 minutes. But Aditi Mutatkar’s 10-21,16-21 loss to MF Kusumastuti started the slide.Aparna Balan and Prajakta Sawant’s 11- 21,11-21 defeat against Liliyana and Maheshwari Nitya Krishinda locked the tie 2-2, after which, Arundhati Pantawane lost the fifth and decisive rubber 9-21, 10-21 to Linda Wenifanetri.In the men’s event, Arvind Bhat fought hard but had to bow to Hsing Yu Hsieh 28-26, 15- 21, 21-13 in the opening match. India desperately needed a win from Sanave Thomas and Akshay Dewalkar in the doubles rubber but they lost 19-21, 17-21 to Chieh-Min Fang and Sheng Mu Lee.But Kashyap kept his team afloat by recording a comefrom- behind win over Hsuan Yi Hsueh. The Commonwealth Games bronze medallist won 18-21, 21-13, 23-21 to give hope to India. However, this hope was stubbed out when doubles pair V Diju and Rupesh Kumar lost 17-21, 20-22 to Hung Ling Chen and Yu Lang Lin. Ministry pulls the plug on equestrian teams The Equestrian Federation of India’s (EFI) claims of everything being alright with its quarantine procedures has already been proved wrong, with Chinese authorities refusing permission for Indian horses to be sent to Guangzhou.Now, even the sports ministry has acknowledged the EFI’s mismanagement, retracting its permission allowing the team to compete at the Asiad. In a letter to the EFI, under secretary SPS Tomar wrote: “It is learnt that horses are yet to leave Bangalore, where they have been quarantined because full clearance from Chinese authorities is still awaited. The government has taken a serious note of the mishandling of the entire matter by the EFI, and under these circumstances, the government is constrained to withdraw the approval for participation of the equestrian team in Asian Games 2010.”Tomar has written another letter to the IOA, withdrawing the approval given to slalom canoeist Vikram Singh Bhandari. As reported by MAIL TODAY, Bhandari’s name was not in the team selected by the SAI, but was cleared after the IOA decided to act on the whims of the de-recognised Indian Kayaking and Canoeing Association. This body is being investigated for misuse of funds.  Women lose Men win in Tennis openers India had mixed luck in tennis as the team competitions began at the Asian Games on Saturday. In the absence of Sania Mirza, the women’s team lost 0-3 to Indonesia, but the men made up for the disappointment by defeating Qatar 3-0. While it was no surprise that Somdev Devvarman won his singles match 6-0, 6-1 against Shanan Mousa Zayed, comeback man Karan Rastogi warmed up with a 6-1, 6-1 win over Jabor Mohammed al Mutawa.advertisementFrom India’s point of view, Rastogi’s win was a good sign. As one who spent a year out of action following a back injury, he has worked hard on his comeback in ITF events. In doubles, Somdev paired with Sanam Singh to defeat Mubarak Shannan Zayid and Abdul al Hareth 6-0, 6-1.The disappointment of the day came in the women’s team event where India lost to Indonesia. Sania, still recovering from an ear infection, did not play. Rushmi Chakrvarthy should have played the second singles. However, with coach Enrico Piperno opting for Nirupama Sanjeev, it turned out to be a rout.Talking about the decision to drop Rushmi, Piperno said: “My decision backfired. The point is Indonesia was a strong team and we had very little chance.”Speculation is that Sania will pair with Somdev in mixed doubles.

Ohio State sported jerseys dating back to 1942 during Saturday’s meeting with Michigan, but the game’s result continued a tradition established in the last decade. The No. 8 Buckeyes rolled to their seventh consecutive win over rival Michigan, beating the Wolverines, 37-7, and clinching a share of their sixth straight Big Ten title in front of 105,491 fans at Ohio Stadium. As part of the Nike Pro Combat series, OSU wore custom-designed uniforms to honor the 1942 national championship team. The 2010 Buckeyes (11-1, 7-1) likely won’t be a part of any title game, but moved a step closer toward a BCS bowl invite with their ninth win in the last 10 games against Michigan (7-5, 3-5). “It’s always the same feeling,” linebacker Ross Homan said. “Every time we beat Michigan, it’s always a great feeling and a success.” It took the Buckeye offense a quarter to warm up on a chilly Columbus afternoon. After a scoreless first frame, OSU exploded for 24 points in the second quarter. Devin Barclay opened the scoring with a 33-yard field goal to cap a 10-play, 74-yard OSU drive. “They put in some schemes that we hadn’t seen before, and it took us a little while to adjust to them,” senior offensive lineman Bryant Browning said. “I thought as the game went on, our offense was more effective.” An 18-yard punt placed the Buckeyes’ next possession at the Michigan 35-yard line. Five plays later, quarterback Terrelle Pryor found Dane Sanzenbacher for a 7-yard touchdown. Michigan responded with an 80-yard drive, culminating with a 1-yard touchdown run by Michael Shaw, but Jordan Hall returned the ensuing kickoff 85 yards to push the OSU lead to 17-7. “Words can’t explain it,” Hall said. “I’ve been waiting for it so long. We’re supposed to give the ball to the ref after we score, but I don’t even know where I put it.” The Buckeyes then cashed in on a lost fumble by Michigan running back Vincent Smith with a 60-yard touchdown drive. Pryor connected with DeVier Posey across the middle, and the junior receiver dove into the end zone to increase OSU’s advantage. Pryor completed 18 of 27 passes for 219 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. Posey hauled in five catches for 81 yards. Turnovers hindered Michigan’s first-half productivity. The Wolverines twice turned the ball over on downs and also lost a pair of fumbles. “We took advantage of their turnovers,” Pryor said. “Normally if you win the turnover margin, you have a good chance of winning.” Despite outgaining the Buckeyes 258-229, Michigan trailed 24-7 at halftime. Quarterback Denard Robinson, widely considered the Heisman trophy favorite throughout the first half of the season, rushed for 105 yards before intermission. However, coach Rich Rodriguez said at halftime that the sophomore dislocated a couple of fingers on his non-throwing hand. Robinson sat out Michigan’s final drive of the first half and much of the second half. “It wouldn’t have been much of a problem, but he likes to grip it with that hand and he couldn’t get any feeling back,” Rodriguez said. “He tried to go back in the second half but he just couldn’t do it. It’s unfortunate because he was playing well today.” Sophomore Tate Forcier, whom the Buckeyes picked off four times in Ann Arbor, Mich., in last year’s matchup, took over. He threw an interception on the first play after halftime. The Buckeye running game struggled before the break. Dan “Boom” Herron totaled minus-1 yards on five first-half carries. His fortunes changed in the third quarter. Herron scored from 32 yards out on OSU’s opening drive of the second half, his 11th straight game with a touchdown. “It was a strange game offensively where we kind of led with the pass in the first half and all of a sudden we got a couple turnovers and we are looking more at leading with the run the second half,” coach Jim Tressel said. “It wasn’t like all of a sudden a snowstorm came in or something. It was just that’s not what we needed to do and we always talk about we do what the team needs, and first half we needed to throw it.” Michigan punter Will Hagerup didn’t travel to Columbus after being suspended for what the team called “a violation of team rules.” After backup punter Seth Broekhulzen pinned the Buckeyes at their own 2-yard line, Herron thundered down the sideline to the end zone. A holding call against receiver Dane Sanzenbacher near the end of the run turned a 98-yard touchdown into an 89-yard pickup. Herron’s rush tied the school record for longest play from scrimmage. Gene Fekete gained 89 yards on a carry against Pittsburgh in 1942. “I didn’t think it was a penalty but I don’t make the calls,” Sanzenbacher said. “I wouldn’t change what I did if I could do the play again, if that makes it any better. Sorry to Boom to steal his touchdown. I was just trying to help clear the way for him to get into the end zone.” Herron finished with 22 carries for 175 yards, the third time he has topped the century mark in the last four contests. The game resembled the last trip the Wolverines made to the Horseshoe, when they fell 42-7 in Rich Rodriguez’s first season in 2008. read more

OSU then-sophomore attacker Colin Chell (22) prepares to shoot during a scrimmage against The Hill Academy on Jan. 30. Credit: Kylie Bryant | | For The LanternA stinging loss to No. 19 Marquette followed by a marginal win against Detroit Mercy was not what the then-No. 6 Ohio State men’s lacrosse team had in mind going into the Midwest Lacrosse Classic last weekend. But the now-No. 14 Buckeyes (5-1) have had a full week of practice to improve their play as they prepare to clash with Towson for their first game of the season at Ohio Stadium.The Tigers have stumbled to a sluggish 2-3 record this season with an 0-2 away record. But the Buckeyes aren’t counting them out, especially considering Towson’s previous performances against them.“This is a game that the last four years we’ve played them — twice last year and the two prior to that — you’re looking at two overtime games and two one-goal games,” Ohio State head coach Nick Myers said. “We anticipate it being a really healthy competition, seeing two teams collide and probably being something like that as it has been in the past.”The Buckeyes are 3-1 in the past four years against Towson, with their lone loss coming in the 2016 season by way of a 10-9 overtime decision. Last year, Ohio State managed a 6-3 mid-season win versus the Tigers, and followed that up with a dramatic 11-10 win in the NCAA semifinals, before losing to Maryland in the championship game. Towson brings Colonial Athletic Association player of the week Jon Mazza to the table. He is a 6-foot-4 junior attack who had a standout day for the Tigers in their 8-6 win against the University of Maryland, Baltimore County on Saturday. He recorded five goals and two assists. Myers specifically mentioned Towson junior midfielder Alex Woodall, who has won 72-of-105 draws, as a notable opponent for Ohio State’s own faceoff specialists — freshman midfielder Justin Inacio and sophomore midfielder Christian Feliziani. “They’re very disciplined. They typically don’t do anything to beat themselves, and they’re going to force you to beat them, which for us creates a really good challenge,” Myers said.Myers said Ohio State’s first loss on the road against the Golden Eagles on Friday created a sense of urgency among team members, forcing them to analyze the facets of their game that needed attention before going up against Towson. “I think it just starts with leadership, you know just taking that one-goal-at-a-time approach,” senior attack Colin Chell said. “I think it’s really settling the guys down, making sure we have good offensive possessions, making stops on defense, big ground balls at the [faceoff] and just taking it one possession and one goal at a time.”Saturday’s game will be the team’s first this season playing in Ohio Stadium, a fact that leaves players both excited and humbled.“I’ve been fortunate enough to play in there for three years – this’ll be my fourth year – and you know we’re just excited to get out there,” said Chell. “[We’re] pumped for these young guys to experience the Shoe – it’s a truly incredible experience.”The Buckeyes’ faceoff is slated to begin at 4 p.m. Saturday in Ohio Stadium. read more

first_imgMaurizio Sarri’s constant brushes with Italy’s football authorities may probably cost him the chance of ever becoming Chelsea’s next boss, Sky Sports believes.A 20k Euro fine and two-game ban in January for a reportedly homophobic abuse of Roberto Mancini seem to be taking the west London club away from appointing him. The 60-year-old Sarri, however, denied being homophobic but was still banned for “directing extremely insulting epithets at the coach of the opposing team”.There are indications that Chelsea has so far refused to pay the £7m release clause being demanded by Napoli’s owner. But it’s his growing list of transgressions that could end Sarri’s chances of replacing Antonio Conte.There have been a series of transgression incidents involving Sarri, including an obscene gesture to supporters of Juventus in Turin, oral abuse of his own players and sexist remarks about female journalists.Maurizio Sarri, JuventusMaurizio Sarri satisfied despite Juventus’ draw at Fiorentina Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Maurizio Sarri was satisfied with Juventus’ performance on Saturday afternoon after finishing a tough game at Fiorentina 0-0.Even after his recent touchline spat with Mancini, the former Manchester City manager, when asked what happened, said:“You have to ask Sarri what happened.

first_imgThe Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee considered several bills that included measures on mental health and improving women’s health care, matching a similar House push, Military.com reported Thursday.The Senate mental health bill would create grants for outside mental health organizations, require access to alternative animal and sports therapies, and increase the number of VA mental health providers. It also would require VA to track progress on its national suicide plan, and expand telehealth services.The women’s health bills would increase VA counselors for female veterans, increase coverage for maternity care, and expand the number of female health care providers.The bipartisan bills have widespread support.In the House, Veteran’s Affairs Committee lawmakers passed a number of their own mental health bills, including addressing veterans suicide, Military Times reported.“The sad statistic shows after the 20 veterans and military service members who die by suicide, 14 of those 20 have not received VA health care,” Chairman Rep. Mark Takano (D-Calif.) said. “This is one step toward changing this tragic number.”One measure would expand counseling at community-based veterans centers. Another measure would require the VA to provide a report to lawmakers when a veteran commits suicide at VA facilities in their districts. ADC AUTHORlast_img read more

first_imgSky’s new advanced set-top box and entertainment platform, Sky Q, is “long overdue” but “will not disappoint”, according to CCS Insight analyst Paolo Pescatore.Commenting ahead of the release of Sky Q, which Sky first unveiled in November, CCS’s director of multiplay and media said that Sky’s new device “could be the most impressive set-top box we’ve seen to date, stuffed with hardware, software features underpinned by a cloud-based architecture.”However, Pescatore added that shortcomings and obstacles still remain, including the inability for Sky customers to take recordings from their existing box to the new one, and no voice-controls or Ultra HD 4K content from day – although both will be supported.“Overall, Sky must be applauded for bringing a best in class box and service to market. By opening up the Sky platform to third parties, Sky will position Sky Q as a broad entertainment service for the entire household,” said Pescatore.Separately, Strategy Analytics analyst David Mercer said: “SkyQ is Sky’s main weapon in seeing off the threat from BT and Netflix to its market leadership over the next decade. Sky Q’s improved functionality shows that multi-screen viewing and fast access to video-on-demand content are seen as the key battles to win.”last_img read more
