Arrest those involved in desecration of crosses in Catholic cemetery: BJP MLA

first_imgBharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Nilesh Cabral on Wednesday threatened to sit on a dharna if culprits behind the mass desecration at a cemetery in Curchorem village are not arrested before the end of upcoming Monsoon session of the Goa legislative assembly. “These desecrations are a threat to my government. Police have to act quickly and arrest those responsible for the desecration or else I will sit on dharna outside the Curchorem police station before the assembly session ends”, said Mr. Cabral, an MLA from Curchorem constituency.”I will also be raising this issue in the assembly session. Police needs to modernise in order to catch such culprits,” Mr. Cabral, who is also the chairman of State-owned goa tourism Corporation Limited said.State legislative assembly monsoon session is scheduled to begin on July 18.Mr. Cabral’s statement comes in wake of a series of desecration of Catholic and Hindu religious symbols, including the incident earlier this week when several Catholic crosses were smashed and grave-stones broken at a cemetery in South Goa’s Curchorem town. The Goa Archbishop, as well as Governor Mridula Sinha on Tuesday had urged the state police to effectively probe the desecration series. Mr. Cabral also proposed to take up the matter with Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar who is presently away in the U.S. on a personal visit and is scheduled to be back on July 14.last_img read more

Jenson Button hints at retiring from F1

first_imgJenson Button has increased speculation he is set to retire from Formula One after telling British reporters that the ‘joy’ of competing was missing and he had made a decision about his future.Media reports suggested the McLaren driver, whose wife is Japanese, was likely to announce at this weekend’s Japanese Grand Prix that he would be leaving Formula One at the end of the year.”The joy of being in the car is only there if you’re fighting at the front, because you feel like you’re achieving something,” the 2009 world champion said after Sunday’s Singapore Grand Prix.”If you’re fighting near the back, you’re driving an F1 car, but you can easily get joy driving something else. The joy you get is from competing. It’s about fighting at the front,” added the Briton.Also read: Singapore Grand Prix: Fan wanders onto track, creates a flutter “It’s about the possibility of standing on top of the podium. That’s the joy of F1.”The Briton, who made his debut with Williams in 2000, has won 15 grands prix — eight with McLaren.Button’s words sounded markedly different to last season, when there was also considerable speculation about his future but he ended up staying while young Dane Kevin Magnussen was dropped to a reserve role.Then, with the car still an unknown quantity, he was adamant he wanted to stay.Magnussen would be a likely replacement if the 35-year-old does quit, although McLaren also have Belgian Stoffel Vandoorne, leader of the GP2 support series, as a rising star to accommodate.advertisementThe Honda-powered team, who have double world champion Fernando Alonso on a multi-year contract, are keen to find seats for both youngsters.last_img read more

The batting sensation, who scored a century on Test debut, hit 11 boundaries during his whirlwind knock – 69-ball 66 in the morning session.Shaw stitched an 80-run stand with Cheteshwar Pujara after which India’s middle-order made merry.Captain Virat Kohli joined Pujara at the middle after Shaw’s departure and he carried on from where he left in the final T20I by scoring an 87-ball 64.Also read | Khawaja will pip Kohli and Australia will beat India in Tests: Ricky PontingHowever, his fluent innings was cut short by a 19-year-old from Bournemouth in Dorset – Aaron Mark Hardie.The Australian teenager – a right arm medium pace bowler – would go on to pick three more wickets which included Rohit Sharma’s scalp.

Ubers Deng talks postairport food delivery stress relief

NEW YORK — Uber began as a ride-hailing company, but its ambition to become the “Amazon of transportation” has pushed its leaders to experiment with bus fleets, transit and its growing food delivery business.Peter Deng, who spent nearly a decade at Facebook before joining Uber Technologies Inc., wants to relieve riders’ stress from their daily lives by unlocking more experiences through the Uber app.The Associated Press recently spoke with Deng about how, as Head of Rider, he aims to offer rides tailored to every occasion and to localize the experience in more than 700 cities across the globe. The conversation has been edited for clarity and length.Q: Uber has been prompting riders on their way home from the airport to order food through Uber Eats. How is that going?A: Our orientation is to serve the customer, to make their lives easier. And that was the hypothesis of one of our product managers who was like, “Hey, I sometimes get hungry when I’m going home from the airport,” and I’m like, “Oh my God, me too.” You’re going home to an empty fridge, it’s not a pleasant experience for anyone involved.Q: Where is Uber prompting airport riders to order food?A: We’ve done small-scale tests in the U.S., and this is one of many ideas that we’ve tested of how we can serve our customers better. Depending on what we learn, we take those insights and build a better product.Q: Does Uber co-ordinate in the background to time the delivery with the Uber arrival?A: When you experience it, it feels magical, and let’s just keep it that way. The time it takes to order and prepare and deliver food is for some folks the amount of time it takes to get home from the airport.Q: You have a bus service in Cairo. What need are you aiming to fill with Uber Bus?A: We’re looking to satisfy people’s daily needs, and getting to and from work, that commute experience, is a daily need. Getting more people into an affordable, high-quality bus with air conditioning, and getting people to and from work on a predictable basis, that’s the need that we’re solving. In Egypt, we believe we can provide a better experience at a very good price…taking that stress out of people’s everyday lives.Q: How does Uber Bus work?A: A rider will open the app, they will type in where they’re going. They will see in their options that you can take an Uber X, Uber Pool and you now have the option to take the Uber Bus. The Uber Bus requires you to walk to and from the stop, and it tells you when the next one is arriving.Q: Are the routes predetermined? Or can the driver change a route based on an incoming ride request?A: We have a lot of good insights into where people go to and from for work, because people use Uber. And from that we can optimize which routes are the best for us to run each of the bus lines.We’re doing the heavy lifting on the back end to figure out which bus driver to dispatch, and at what time, and over the day we might learn from our insights that there are better routes than others. When the driver has set out, after they’ve made their first pickup, there is a route we predetermined that they will follow, based on the insights I was talking about.Q: At Facebook, you worked on the Events and Messenger features. Any plans to bring similar features to the Uber app?A: It’s really important that we stay focused on what we can do well and what unique value we’re adding to people’s lives, and for us it’s getting people where they need to go. We are getting people who are hungry food. We are offering people modes of transportation like transit and scoters and bikes. That’s where we want to play…There are plenty of apps in the world that accomplish these other cases really well.Q: What about targeted ads? Uber is under pressure from investors to demonstrate a path to profitability. Why not advertise to riders with targeted ads in the Uber app, or in the back seat of cars?A: We’re focused on the rider experience overall, and the rider experience is an experience that — unlike a lot of other products in Silicon Valley — people pay for. And it’s on us to make sure that when the customers pay and when we pay our drivers that all of that marketplace works out really well. It’s really humbling to think of how many millions of people every single day are assigning Uber value enough to pay for the service, and how many of our amazing driver partners are able to make a living off of this. So that’s where we’re really focused, is making sure that this marketplace works.Cathy Bussewitz, The Associated Press read more

Football Ohio State hosts Illinois in final home game of 2017

Ohio State won 48-3. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorNo. 9 Ohio State (8-2, 6-1 Big Ten) will play its final game in Ohio Stadium at 3:30 p.m. Saturday when it hosts Illinois (2-8, 0-7 Big Ten). It will also celebrate Senior Day, with players like quarterback J.T. Barrett, center Billy Price and linebacker Chris Worley competing in their final game in the Horseshoe. The Buckeyes have a chance to clinch the Big Ten East title Saturday with a win if No. 24 Michigan loses at No. 5 Wisconsin. Ohio State offense vs. Illinois defenseOhio State comes in heavily favored to throttle the Fighting Illini, and the lopsided matchup between the Buckeyes’ offense and Illinois’ defense is a major factor in that. The Fighting Illini have allowed 28.4 points per game, the 76th most in the nation, and 403.2 yards per game. Ohio State will bring an offense that averages the third-most yards per game at 546.5 and fifth-most points at 44.2.The greatest disparity between the Buckeye offense and Fighting Illini defense comes in the ground game. Illinois has allowed the 105th-fewest rush yards per game at 199.1 and 80th-fewest yards per carry at 4.5. Meanwhile, Ohio State comes in with the 16th-most rushing yards per game (245.3) and fourth-most yards per carry (6.1).The Buckeyes also are coming off their most dominating rushing game of the season, recording a season-high 335 yards on 42 carries and scored four touchdowns. Both freshman J.K. Dobbins and redshirt sophomore Mike Weber recorded more than 120 rushing yards.As for the passing game, Ohio State still holds a statistical advantage over the Illini. Ohio State has averaged 301.2 passing yards per game, 17th-most in the nation, and 8.5 yards per attempt, which is tied for 18th. Illinois has been sound defending against opposing aerial attacks, holding opponents to the 42nd-fewest pass yards per game (204.1) and 57th-fewest yards per attempt (7.1). The Fighting Illini have a pair of safeties who have put together strong seasons and helped the pass defense remain solid for the team. Stanley Green and Bennett Williams are second and third, respectively, in total tackles on the team despite playing in the defensive backfield. Green has picked off one pass this season, forced two fumbles and recovered one. Williams has 1.5 sacks, two interceptions, two passes defended and one forced fumble.The defense for Illinois has been comparatively solid when examining it as a whole. It has done a far better job keeping opponents from scoring than the Illinois offense has done itself in trying to score. However, given the struggles of the Fighting Illini offense, the defense might be on the field for extended time Saturday. Ohio State defense vs. Illinois offenseThe Buckeyes held then-No. 12 Michigan State to just three points in their most recent game in Ohio Stadium. There’s a chance Illinois might not even be able to muster up that much. The Fighting Illini offense comes into this game having averaged 16.4 points per game, 124th in the nation, and squares off against a defense that has allowed the 25th-fewest points at just 20.4.The only aspect of Illinois’ offense that has found any semblance of success this season has been its passing game. Two quarterbacks — the pocket-passing Jeff George Jr. and the mobile Chayce Crouch — have regularly split time under center for Illinois in its attempt to provide unique looks to opposing defenses.Unfortunately for the team, neither quarterback has found much of anything. George has 1,273 passing yards with a 51.9 percent completion rating and seven touchdown passes to 10 interceptions.Crouch has only 427 passing yards with a 53.2 percent completion rating with a touchdown and four picks. On the ground, Crouch has 93 total yards on 46 carries and one touchdown. Overall, the offense has the 92nd-most pass yards per game. It is completing just 51 percent of passes and has thrown eight touchdown passes to 17 interceptions. Part of the problem for the quarterbacks has been the inconsistency of the offensive line. The line has allowed the fourth-most sacks per game at 3.6 and the 117th-most tackles for loss per game at 7.3.The offensive line’s struggles has contributed to the inability for Illinois to gets its run game going. The Fighting Illini have the 121st-fewest rush yards per attempt at 3.32 and the 122nd-fewest rush yards per game at 107.8. Only Mike Epstein and Cam Thomas are averaging more than 4.5 yards per carry, and the former is out for the year and the latter is questionable for Saturday.This Fighting Illini offense plays right into the hands of the Ohio State defense. Though the passing defense for Ohio State has struggled at times, it seemingly only has issues when the defensive line is not applying enough pressure on the quarterbacks. Ohio State’s defensive line has the ninth-most tackles for loss per game (8.3) and 23rd-most sacks per game (2.7). But perhaps most importantly, it is coming off one of its strongest game of the season in which it had nine tackles for loss and six sacks against the Spartans.The Fighting Illini quarterbacks could struggle to receive sufficient pass protection, and it is unlikely the rushing offense will produce much against a rush defense that has allowed the 14th-fewest yards per game (116.5) and ninth-fewest yards per carry (3.16). This figures to be a tough game for the Fighting Illini. Predictions:Edward Sutelan: Ohio State wins 63-3Colin Hass-Hill: Ohio State wins 58-3 read more

Football Urban Meyer knew about allegations made against former wide receivers coach

OSU coaches Tony Alford (left) and Zach Smith stand together before the Buckeyes game against Rutgers on Oct. 1. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorA report made Wednesday by former ESPN reporter Brett McMurphy detailed domestic violence allegations made against former Ohio State wide receivers coach Zach Smith in both 2009 and 2015. The report suggests Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer knew about the allegations, something which he denied at Big Ten Media Days last week. The report showed pictures of the abuse of Courtney Smith, the ex-wife of Zach Smith, and included text messages exchanged between Courtney Smith and Shelley Meyer, Urban Meyer’s wife, which specifically discusses Zach Smith’s domestic abuse. “All the [coaches’] wives knew,” Courtney said to McMurphy. “They all did. Every single one.” Meyer said at Big Ten Media Days that he had no knowledge of a domestic violence incident in 2015, where Smith was investigated by the Powell Police Department, according to the report. According to the report, Zach Smith “took (Courtney) and shoved me up against the wall, with his hands around my neck,” something she said happened very often. McMurphy reported that in 2009, Courtney Smith was pressured by former Ohio State head coach Earle Bruce and special assistant Hiram DeFries to not press charges against Zach Smith after he was arrested by Gainesville Police after an alleged assault. Ohio State fired Zach Smith on July 23 after the domestic violence allegations became public and Courtney Smith filed a domestic protection order against him, which was filed on July 20 after Zach Smith appeared in Delaware County Municipal Court for criminal trespassing on July 18. The Ohio State football program could not be reached for comment. In a media advisory distributed on July 27, an Ohio State spokesman anticipated Meyer would next be available for comment on August 7. There has been no further update since then. read more

Boy arrested in Chicago after sexual assault of girl was streamed live

first_imgBoy arrested in Chicago after sexual assault of girl was streamed live on Facebook About 40 people watched the video and didn’t report it to authorities. 18 Comments Image: Shutterstock/tristan tan Sunday 2 Apr 2017, 8:32 AM 22,492 Views Image: Shutterstock/tristan tan By Associated Press Short URL Apr 2nd 2017, 8:32 AM A 14-YEAR-OLD boy has been arrested over the sexual assault of a 15-year-old girl in Chicago that was streamed live on Facebook and watched by about 40 people who didn’t report it to authorities, police have said.Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said more arrests are expected as the investigation continues. Police have said the attack involved five or six males, and Guglielmi said the boy “was one of the offenders in the video”.Guglielmi said the juvenile suspect faces felony charges of aggravated criminal sexual assault, and manufacturing and dissemination of images of child sexual abuse.The spokesman has said police were not aware of the mid-March attack until the girl’s mother approached Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson and showed him the video.‘Visibly upset’ Johnson was “visibly upset” after he watched, both by the video’s content and the fact that there were “40 or so live viewers and no one thought to call authorities”, Guglielmi said.The girl’s mother said her daughter received online threats following the attack. The Chicago Sun Times later reported that the girl’s family had been relocated.The video marks the second time in recent months that Chicago police have investigated an apparent attack that was broadcast live on Facebook. In January, four people were arrested after video showed them allegedly taunting and beating a man with mental disabilities.Read: Large fire erupts near world’s tallest building in DubaiRead: President Higgins extends sympathy to Colombia as mudslide death toll tops 200 http://jrnl.ie/3319629 Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Share142 Tweet Email last_img read more

first_img Rare Harvest Moon Will Light Up Night Sky on Friday the 13thIndia Finds Lost Vikram Lander on Moon’s Surface Get your telescopes ready: July’s full moon, also nicknamed the “Thunder Moon,” will illuminate the night sky on Tuesday night.On July 16, at 5:38 p.m. EDT, the Thunder Moon will be its brightest and appear full from Tuesday evening to Thursday morning, NASA said in a press release. The Thunder Moon, which will appear “opposite” the sun, will enable some onlookers to spot Jupiter and Saturn to the right of the moon on Tuesday night, AccuWeather.com reported.A partial lunar eclipse will also be visible in some areas of the world, where only a small area of the moon will pass through our planet’s inner shadow, also known as umbra. During the partial lunar eclipse, which is expected to last nearly three hours, only part of the moon will look dark while the rest of the moon will be all lit up by the sun. Skywatchers in North America won’t be able to see this partial eclipse with the Thunder Moon, however,  those in Australia, Africa, and South America will have better views of this celestial sight.Setting moon and elk (Photo Credit: National Park Service / Neal Herbert)The Thunder Moon receives its nickname for early summer’s frequent thunderstorms, which typically hit North America during June and July, NASA noted.
