‘Minority bloc oppposing growth in Goa’

first_imgMinister for Road Transport, Highways and Shipping Nitin Gadkari has said that “a microscopic minority group is proving to be an obstacle in the development of Goa.”‘Lack of interest’ He was addressing the annual general meeting of the Goa Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) here on Saturday. Mr. Gadkari said, “We are interested in expanding the ports but people in Goa are not interested, so I decided to go to Karnataka and Maharashtra. If you want, we will develop them. If you are not okay, we won’t hesitate to go to other States.” Mr. Gadkari said, “We have sanctioned ₹600 crore for four-laning roads from National Highway 17 to Mopa airport. I have asked my officials whether it is possible to use a river like Zuari or any other river to develop waterways up to the airport. We are working on it and it is possible. But your Captain of Ports has not been giving permission for one-and-a-half years. “We have sanctioned ₹40 crore to carry out dredging work in Zuari and Mandovi rivers, but there is apprehension among a few groups that we are going to take the rivers to Delhi.”Mr. Gadkari said transportation in the State should run on fuels of the future such as electricity, ethanol, bio-diesel, methanol and bio-CNG. He said even ships can be run on these fuels.last_img read more

Mohit 10*, Aaron 1*21:30 IST: FOUR! Short and outside off, Mohit does well to cut it past backward point for a boundary. Every run from the tail is a bonus for Punjab!21:27 IST: OUT! Potentially a game changing over by Umesh Yadav! Third wicket goes down in it. Once again a delivery bowled at a lethal pace, 143 kph, around off and holding onto the batsman, Axar tries flicking but is early into the shot. He gets a leading edge and stop the press, Sunil Narine has taken a catch at extra cover. Kolkata are roaring! KXIP 156/7 from 18 overs.21:25 IST: OUT! Two-in-two for Yadav. Saha this time falls and Punjab are falling apart in the death overs. Sharp delivery, full and angling into the batsman, Saha tries to go over mid off but fails to get enough timing. It’s dipping in front of Colin de Grandhomme at mid off who does well to grab it inches above the surface. KXIP 155/6 from 17.4. Axar 0*21:23 IST: OUT! Miller has to depart! A killer blow to Punjab as it will cost them at least 20-25 runs. Yadav gets lucky with this full toss as Miller has mistimed his heave over mid-wicket.

In the side’s next game, Lynn looked menacing for his 24-ball 32.Against Kings XI, who will come into the game on the back of two victories, it goes without saying that Lynn will be missed.UMESH, SHAKIB LIKELY TO RETURNThe good news for the home team is the availability of in-form Umesh.The India pacer missed the first two KKR matches due to right hip and lower back soreness after a gruelling home season where he played 12 of the 13 Tests.Umesh was the pick of the quick bowlers in the recently concluded India-Australia series, scalping 17 wickets in eight innings.The 29-year-old Nagpur boy has been working up some serious pace lately and on a wicket that is expected to offer a lot of pace and bounce, Umesh’s addition might make the difference.KKR threw away their previous encounter against Mumbai and at the forefront was poor death bowling.last_img read more

ESPN Documentary Shows Bleier’s Emotional Return to Vietnam

first_imgRocky Bleier thought he made peace with what happened in a rice paddy in Vietnam on Aug. 20, 1969.What the former Pittsburgh Steelers running back didn’t have though was closure until a trip back there last year.Bleier’s visit to Vietnam — the first time he had been back since being injured in battle — is the subject of ESPN’s “The Return”, which debuts Tuesday at 8 p.m. EDT on ESPN2. A shorter version began airing Saturday on “SportsCenter” as part of its weekly SC Featured series.“It was a different catharsis than I anticipated,” Bleier said. “Unlike the average veteran who returned after service and had to repress those feelings, I came back to a high-profile industry and became a story. In some regards it was cathartic (during his playing days) that I had to talk about it.”Bleier’s story remains one of perseverance. He was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 16th round in 1968 only to be drafted into the U.S. Army during his rookie season. Three months after being deployed, Bleier was shot through his thigh and suffered a grenade blast where shrapnel severely damaged his right foot and both legs when his “Charlie Company” unit was ambushed during a recovery operation in the Hiep Duc Valley.Of the 33 soldiers in the infantry unit, 25 were injured and four killed.Doctors were able to save Bleier’s foot but told him he would never play football again. Not only did Bleier recover from his injuries, but he was an integral part of the Steelers’ four Super Bowl teams in the 1970s.He remains one of the most beloved players in franchise history. The feature opens with Bleier’s induction into their Ring of Honor last year.“It’s a tragedy, I wish the war had never happened,” Hall of Fame running back Franco Harris says during the film. “But if we change anything would the Old Man (Art Rooney) have put Rocky on the team and would Rocky have worked as hard as we had, and would we have four Super Bowls?”Bleier acknowledges that the trip happened at the right time since his war and NFL experiences are intertwined.Getting Bleier to return to Vietnam was one of ESPN producer Jon Fish’s dream projects and happened after nearly 10 years of discussions. ESPN green-lighted it in March 2017 and the trip happened last August with Bleier, Fish, reporter Tom Rinaldi and a camera crew flying into Da Nang, which is 35 miles from the Hiep Duc Valley.Bleier kept telling Fish and Rinaldi not to expect a lot of emotion before the trip, but all of that changed when he finally got to the area. After giving Bleier time to walk around and take everything in, Rinaldi caught up with him and asked what he was feeling.At that point, Bleier began to break down and weep.“All of a sudden I had an overwhelming feeling of loss and sadness,” he said. “Why did we fight this war? Why did we lose 58,000 soldiers and in all honesty for what? Maybe for first time I can understand on a slight basis the impact that our soldiers go through and maybe just a little what post-traumatic stress might be and how the body reacts to all the emotions.”Shortly after Bleier was overcome emotionally, he collapsed while walking through the area due to heatstroke and was taken to a clinic to be evaluated. He returned back to the rice paddy two days later.Fish — who has been producing features for 22 years — said he was surprised that cameras were still rolling when Bleier collapsed.“We were extremely calm and worried about his well being. When you do a TV shoot it is very involved and planned hour by hour but all of that went out the window,” Fish said. “Here we are worried about Rocky and he wanted to go back and finish.”The heat and humidity didn’t just affect Bleier. Fish said that two cameras had their motherboards completely fried due to the conditions.On their second trip to the rice paddy, Bleier met a Viet Cong soldier who became a scout for the U.S. Army during the war. The former soldier had seen the crew filming, approached Bleier and said “4th to the 31st. America Division. Chu Li. Company B. Number 220.”The soldier was a scout for Bravo Company, which was ambushed in an earlier mission. It was Blier’s unit which was sent to retrieve the bodies of nine U.S. soldiers who were ambushed in an earlier mission.“Everyone we met was pro American. There is a whole generation that the war is for the history books and not an experience they were a part of. The viewpoint has changed,” Bleier said.There was plenty of time during filming where Bleier had time alone to reflect. Rinaldi said their hope was to let the moments develop while not being obtrusive.“It is no small request to ask someone to share their story and trust,” Rinaldi said. “We all have great respect for the physical strength and courage that Rocky has. For him to be willing to be that vulnerable is something we didn’t expect.”Bleier — who worked in television after he retired from the Steelers — has an appreciation for the process.“Their sense of detail, coming up with the end result and impact you are looking for, that takes a talent. For me it was interesting and intriguing,” Bleier said. “Tom is a wonderful writer in his own right and has this great charisma. Jon is creative. To keep this on track for 10 years you have to be a special person.“Out of this whole thing there is a relationship that has developed. It is so easy now to call them friends rather than acquaintances. Hopefully this film will help some veterans with some healing or closure possibilities. I hope that it is the case.”___By JOE REEDY AP Sports WriterTweetPinShare11 Shareslast_img read more

As shorts land on tour some fashion dos and donts for the

first_imgOTTAWA – The PGA of America gave its blessing to letting players wear shorts during the practice rounds for this week’s PGA Championship at the Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, N.C. Players cheered the decision, which observers say will help to bring the professional game more in line with its recreational cousin.That said, there are still a number of fairway faux-pas that the average weekend golfer would be well-advised to avoid. Here are five things to consider from Stittsville, Ont., golf-fashion blogger Mike McAllister (@chapeaunoirgolf):1. Are white belts still cool? Unless your name is Anthony Kim (remember him?!) and it’s 2008, no — regardless of what you see on tour.2. Do I have to tuck in my shirt? Grudgingly, there seems to be a growing acceptance of the untucked look. However, if you’ve accepted your future father-in-law’s invite to his private club, keep it tucked. And yes, you should still take your hat off when you enter a room.3. What about pleated pants? Please, no. They don’t make you look slimmer. Sorry.4. What about joggers, hightops, and racerbacks? More modern, athletic-looking attire is making a splash on professional tours, and why not? Despite its stuffy image, golf has always drawn inspiration from mainstream fashion trends for on-course inspiration.5. Don’t get hung up on golf-specific brands. You’d be surprised what you can do with a pair of five-pocket stretch chinos from H&M and a JoeFresh polo. Don’t be afraid to put your own spin on traditional golf garb.— Follow James McCarten on Twitter @froghairgolflast_img read more

Urban Meyer Keeping momentum will be key coming out of bye week

Just five games and seven weeks into the season, the Ohio State football team has already found itself with two bye weeks.The Buckeyes (5-1, 1-0) are scheduled to return to the field this weekend, two weeks removed from their 52-24 win against Maryland on Oct. 4. On Monday, OSU coach Urban Meyer met with members of the media to discuss the unusual early-season breaks, the development of offensive skill players and the talent on his young roster.Meyer said the Buckeyes have to find a way to keep the momentum going after a week off between the Maryland win and the week leading up to a matchup with Rutgers.He called the second early-season bye week “a little bit of uncharted waters for myself.”Meyer called Rutgers’ last game — a 26-24 win against Michigan on Oct. 4 — a “tremendous effort.”Meyer: “We’re a young team that’s getting older.” He said the young players on both sides of the ball are continuing to develop and contribute.He said he will talk to the team “like grown men” to discuss keeping the momentum going this week.Meyer said the Buckeyes are “no where near where we will end up.” Said the team is “still growing” and “much better” than where it was two weeks ago.He said the defensive line needs to find more depth, young players need to step up and contribute.Meyer said the OSU offensive coaching staff adapts well to the available personnel. Had to adapt to a new-look group this season.He said the offensive staff is in charge of the product on the field as long as the players have the talent, which is the case at OSU.Meyer said he would “always go defense first” if given the option in an overtime game.He said it makes no difference that he and his players haven’t gone up against Rutgers before and said its win against Michigan caught his eye.Meyer said he voted Mississippi No. 1 on his ballot this week.He said he wishes more true freshmen — like freshman linebacker Sam Hubbard — were playing this season, but added it’s not worth wasting a year of eligibility for a player to get into games for a handful of snaps.Meyer: “This is an extremely young team that got hit in the face in training camp with some injuries.”He said despite those injuries, “the cool thing is we had a redshirt-freshman quarterback grow up right in front of our eyes.”He said credit is due for a few guys — Barrett, redshirt-junior tight end Nick Vannett and redshirt-sophomore wide receiver Michael Thomas — who weren’t really factors in the past.With 13 of 24 starters being freshmen or sophomores, Meyer said it’s “a good sign for the future” at OSU.Meyer said injured senior quarterback Braxton Miller gave the Buckeyes the “wow factor,” which isn’t as prominent with Barrett under center.He said he feels better about the offensive skill this season than he has in the past.Meyer said redshirt-senior running back Rod Smith was a “non-factor” during the spring but is now a strong contributor.The Buckeyes are scheduled to return to the field on Saturday to take on Rutgers at Ohio Stadium. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. read more

Southgate England players were harsh on themselves

first_imgGareth Southgate believes England players were “harsh on themselves” at half-time as they managed a 1-0 victory against Switzerland on Tuesday.After a lacklustre goalless first half, Southgate allowed the players a couple of minutes before coming in with the coaching staff to speak with the team and was happy with what he saw. ESPN reports.Southgate said: “I wasn’t in there at that moment because we always give them the first three or four minutes to themselves. We always encourage them to have a voice.Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“They were frustrated the first half. It’s important they feel close enough that they can get on to each other. We have to make sure that doesn’t boil over but it was quite calm by the time we got in there.“That’s a good sign there’s some leadership in the group. They recognise when they want to be better. Today they were harsh on themselves.”England scored in the second half to win the game 1-0, thanks to a goal by Marcus Rashford.last_img read more

Trump signs orders for revival of US energy

first_imgDonald Trump File PhotoIn the US oil heartland on Wednesday, president Donald Trump announced the signing of two executive orders to accelerate the construction of oil and gas pipelines, dismaying environmentalists.The latest measures are in line with others his administration has taken to ease regulation of the energy sector, a major employer and source of growth in Texas, where he made the announcement to trade union operating engineers.”Too often, badly needed energy infrastructure is being held back by special interest groups, entrenched bureaucracies, and radical activists,” the president said in Crosby, near Houston.”I will sign two groundbreaking executive orders to continue the revival of the American energy industry and jobs,” said Trump, who then officially endorsed the measures.”My action today will cut through destructive permitting delays and denials.”The measures aim to limit delays in obtaining permits to build certain infrastructure including pipelines, and will give the president “sole authority to make the final decision when we get caught up in problems,” he told his supporters.The action further seeks to curb states’ power in the process, reported The Washington Post which cited one of the two orders.The United States produces 12.2 million barrels of crude oil per day on average, the most in the world, according to figures from the US Energy Information Administration (EIA) released Wednesday.Trump’s announcement sparked an outpouring of opposition from environmentalists and some political opponents.”I have a better idea. Let’s invest in clean energy infrastructure that will create jobs and won’t destroy our planet,” tweeted Washington state’s Governor Jay Inslee, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for president.Inslee says he will make climate change the central theme of his campaign, in contrast to Trump who pulled the United States out of the 2015 Paris accord on capping global warming.Trump’s executive orders follow his granting last month of a new permit for construction of the Keystone XL pipeline to bring oil from Canada to the US.The previous administration of Barack Obama blocked the project in 2015, citing environmental risks.last_img read more

More information: Nora Hassan et al. Evidence for a quantum dipole liquid state in an organic quasi–two-dimensional material, Science (2018). DOI: 10.1126/science.aan6286AbstractMott insulators are commonly pictured with electrons localized on lattice sites, with their low-energy degrees of freedom involving spins only. Here, we observe emergent charge degrees of freedom in a molecule-based Mott insulator κ-(BEDT-TTF)2Hg(SCN)2Br, resulting in a quantum dipole liquid state. Electrons localized on molecular dimer lattice sites form electric dipoles that do not order at low temperatures and fluctuate with frequency detected experimentally in our Raman spectroscopy experiments. The heat capacity and Raman scattering response are consistent with a scenario in which the composite spin and electric dipole degrees of freedom remain fluctuating down to the lowest measured temperatures. Explore further A team of researchers with members from several institutions in the U.S. and Russia has found evidence that suggests spin liquids in ferromagnets may be similar to dipole liquids in ferroelectrics. In their paper published in the journal Science, the group describes their study of molecular crystals and what they found. Ben Powell with the University of Queensland offers a Perspective piece on the work done by the team in the same journal issue. As Powell explains, the researchers were looking at the behavior of dipole liquids, which are theorized particles that are still not very well understood. Some phases of matter are relatively easy to observe—the spins of ferromagnets, for example. Other are not, such as the spin liquids. In this new effort, the researchers took advantage of features unique to molecular crystals—the structure and dipole inherent in dimer Mott insulators. To that end, they studied specific types of salts, noting that in the dimer Mott phase, most such dimers have a +1 charge. To conduct their study, they used Ramen scattering, comparing what they observed against vibrational models. Doing so allowed them to analyze dipolar fluctuations.The researchers report that they believe their experiments revealed evidence of excitations of dipoles or perhaps hybrid spin-dipole excitations that were provoked by interactions between the unpaired spins and dipoles. This, Powell explains, leads to the question of whether spin-dipole interactions might be involved in the particles observed in the salts—that is, if the excitations actually have hybrid spin dipole characteristics. If so, there lies the possibility that dipole liquids are similar in nature to spin liquids. If that is the case, Powell says, then the work by the team might have led to more questions than answers. But in either case, it offers other physicists new avenues of research efforts. Powell concludes by suggesting further work might involve the development of new tools that can be used to probe particle-like excitations directly—a means of proving one way or another if the two liquid states are truly alike, and if so, how closely. © 2018 Phys.org Crystal structure and phases of BEDT-TTF–based crystals.

Veteran pol expected to prevail in Montenegro vote

first_img Sponsored Stories During campaigning, Djukanovic has played a nationalist card, urging Montenegro’s more than half a million voters to let him cement the country’s statehood and take it into the EU and NATO.“The stakes are high,” he told the voters at a recent rally. “After six years of independence, our statehood is still fragile and we still need to strengthen it. We can’t give our country to those who were against its independence.”Milos Besic of the Center for Democracy and Human Rights said that “no doubt Djukanovic’s popularity and charisma are still at a high level,” despite the economic crisis and widespread accusations by opposition and some international groups that he and his family have been involved in corruption and links with organized crime.Djukanovic has repeatedly rejected such allegations, including an investigation by Italian prosecutors who had suspected his government of a multimillion-dollar cigarette smuggling operation during international sanctions imposed on Milosevic-led Yugoslavia in the 1990s’ because of the Serbian strongman’s warmongering policies.Djukanovic’s most serious opponent this weekend is Miodrag Lekic, a former diplomat and an associate turned foe.

Currently, unemployment officially stands at more than 12 percent, while the average salary is around (EURO)480 ($622) per month.In this week’s progress report, the EU praised Montenegro’s reforms, but added that more needs to be done to strengthen the rule of law, judicial independence and fight against crime and corruption.Even though it lags far behind the ruling coalition, Lekic’s Democratic Front hopes to forge a post-election coalition with smaller opposition groups to counter Djukanovic. The pro-Serb Socialist People’s Party is slated to win nearly 15 percent of the vote, and a newcomer, Positive Montenegro, could garner about 10 percent.____Jovana Gec and Dusan Stojanovic from Belgrade, Serbia, contributed.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Associated PressPODGORICA, Montenegro (AP) – A politician who has ruled Montenegro as president, prime minister and behind-the-scenes power broker could end up leading his country again, if the polls about this weekend’s election are correct.If Milo Djukanovic and his coalition prevail, he could serve as this tiny Balkan nation’s prime minister again and continue its push for EU membership, despite an economic downturn. This week’s latest poll said Djukanovic’s European Montenegro coalition is expected to win nearly half of the 81 seats in parliament in Sunday’s vote, making it one of the few governments in Europe to survive a vote during the region’s economic crisis.The main opposition Democratic Front stands to gain some 20 percent of the vote, according to the survey by the Podgorica-based Center for Democracy and Human Rights. The margin of error was 3 percent.Djukanovic and his coalition have ruled Montenegro since the late 1980s, first in alliance with Serbia’s strongman Slobodan Milosevic, then as his toughest opposition.Montenegro is a small, mountainous country of 625,000 people in southeastern Europe with one coast on the Adriatic Sea.Djukanovic, 50, served as its prime minister _ the top job_ and as president while steering Montenegro to independence from Serbia in 2006 and toward opening European Union accession talks this year.Although he formally resigned and handed over the premiership to a crony in 2010, Djukanovic _ the youngest prime minister in Europe at the age of 29 in 1991 _ has continued to rule the country from behind the scenes and to remain at the helm of his Democratic Party of Socialists. He is widely expected to become prime minister again, if his coalition wins Sunday. Former Arizona Rep.
