Napoli: ‘Not a punitive retreat’

first_img Watch Serie A live in the UK on Premier Sports for just £11.99 per month including live LaLiga, Eredivisie, Scottish Cup Football and more. Visit: Napoli have released a new statement, insisting “the training retreat was constructive and not punitive,” though players and Carlo Ancelotti don’t seem to agree. The club remains in chaos after the squad rebelled against orders to continue the training retreat at the Castelvolturno ground, known in Italy as a ‘ritiro.’ Napoli announced they would take legal action against the squad, which may well include docking their wages, but a new statement was released this evening. “With reference to the news stories that appeared today and over the last few days referring to the first team training retreat, the club is surprised at the way some media outlets erroneously qualified it as a ‘punitive retreat.’ “President De Laurentiis stated on Radio Kiss Kiss on November 4 in very clear and unequivocal fashion: “This is a constructive retreat and not a punitive one.” “A ritiro, an expression summing up the complex mode of training, destined to help the players rediscover their concentration and necessary motivation ahead of two important and delicate matches.” However, the memo doesn’t seem to have reached Ancelotti – who said in a press conference on Monday that he did not agree with the decision to impose a retreat – and the players, who rebelled. Sky Sport Italia suggested the anger also came from the fact President Aurelio De Laurentiis imposed the decision upon them with no warning or explanation.last_img read more

Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju aiming for top 10 Indian finish at 2028 Olympics

first_imgAdvertisementUnion sports minister Kiren Rijiju, on Thursday, has claimed that he would fail as the minister of sports; if India cannot finish within the top 10 of the medals tally by 2028 Olympics. Rijiju also mentioned that the country cannot afford to lag behind in sports, as the prevailing mediocrity in the management of National Sports Federations (NSF) is just “unacceptable”.During the unveiling programme of the logo of India House which is to be established in Tokyo for the 2020 Olympics, Rijiju said, “Our country is set to become the third largest economy in the world by 2022 or 2024, we will be in top three in many fields in the next four-five years. There is no reason why we cannot do well in Olympics,”“2020 Olympics is too near but by 2024 or in 2028, India should be in top 10 in medals tally. It is our target. If India cannot do this, I will feel my becoming Sports Minister is of no use,” he added.He then asked the IOA to ensure that the standard of governance in NSFs is high and specially warned that no athlete’s career should be ruined because of any bureaucrats or coach.“Mediocrity in sports management will not be accepted. This is very much needed if we want to become a sports powerhouse in the near future. The IOA and the NSFs will have to have high standards of governance. I am happy with the functioning of the IOA. I want the IOA and NSFs to follow high standards of governance.”“Ego of those in the sports management does not serve any purpose. If the career of an athlete is ruined because of the ego of people in the management, the government will not tolerate it. Our approach is athlete centric and sports centric,” he said.

India have enough runs, not an easy pitch to bat on: Pujara warns Australia

first_img Ritayan Basu MelbourneDecember 27, 2018UPDATED: December 27, 2018 16:10 IST Cheteshwar Pujara scored 106, his second century in the series so far (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSCheteshwar Pujara took 280 deliveries to get to his 17th centuryPujara said the pitch has already started to deteriorate as India declared at 443/7Pujara felt India have enough runs on the board to put Australia under pressureCheteshwar Pujara struck his second Test century in the ongoing India-Australia series as well as his second in Australia while India piled on runs in the third Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Wednesday.Pujara resumed his knock on 68 on the second day of the Boxing Dat Test, and reached his 17th Test hundred taking 280 deliveries to get to the three figures mark. It was the slowest of all his 17 Test hundreds but of remarkable value.He eventually got out for 106 off an unplayable delivery from Pat Cummins soon after Virat Kohli got dismissed for 82. Pujara is the leading run-scorer in this series having already faced over 840 deliveries so far. In fact, Pujara is the only batsman in the world to have faced over 4000 deliveries in Test cricket since January 1, 2017.India declared their first innings at the fag of the second day on 443/7, as Australia survived the remaining 6 overs without losing a wicket.Pujara at the post-day press conference on Thursday said that it was not easy to score runs on the Melbourne pitch and that India have enough runs on the board.”It is a tough pitch to score runs on. I feel if you look at it.. the first two days the number of runs I scored, which are very less. I would say scoring 200 in a day is a tough task, so I think we have enough runs on the board,” Pujara said after scoring the slowest Test hundred of his career.”The pitch has already started deteriorating and there is variable bounce already. When I was batting yesterday and when I was batting today, I felt there was a difference and I think it is not easier to bat now. From tomorrow onwards it will not get easier to bat and our bowlers have been bowling well so I would say we have enough runs on the board,” Pujara added.advertisementDuring the course of his knock, Pujara also went past 2000 Test runs away from home in his 31st match at an average of over 39. He also went past 5200 runs in the longest format in his 113th innings at an average of over 50.”We have to bat according to the situation and the wicket. On this pitch, if we see, the batsmen are having to play a lot of balls to score runs. It was difficult but if it had been some other wicket I would have made at least 150-60 runs. It is important to play accordingly after reading the pitch and situation,” Pujara said.Pujara said that even though he has had a very good series so far with bat, he said the team’s and his focus right now lies with picking up Australian wickets.”It has been good tour so far personally but firstly this Test is very important for us. The series is 1-1 and we all know how important the result is going to be. We are focusing on our game plan… the batting has been good but we also need to pick up 20 wickets,” Pujara said.There were times as well that Pujara was treated to some short deliveries, which hit him on his fingers. He was even treated by Indian physio Partick Farhart and had his finger bandaged. Pujara said he was trying to protect himself.When asked about his captain Virat Kohli’s back issue and the seriousness of it all, Pujara said he didn’t know as he was not the team physio.”I don’t think it is serious. We were just having a chat. Of course about the injury, I don’t think I can say much as I am not a physio. I don’t think it is serious and we just wanted that partnership to carry on. It is always important to have a big partnership.”Also Read | Virat Kohli breaks Rahul Dravid’s 16-year old record to top elite listAlso Read | Paine challenges Rohit to hit a six, vows allegiance to Mumbai IndiansFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for Sports news, scores and updates.Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

HC upholds decision of Chennai Metro authority to deny job to overqualified

first_imgChennai: The Madras High Court Thursday upheld the rejection of candidature of a woman, who had applied for job, by Chennai Metro Rail Ltd. on the ground that she was overqualified. Justice S Vaidyanathan dismissed the petition by R Lakshmi Prabha challenging the CMRL order rejecting her application for the posts of Train Operator, Station Controller, Junior Engineer (Station). While the educational qualification prescribed for the posts was Diploma in Engineering, the woman was a B.E graduate. Also Read – Squadrons which participated in Balakot air strike awarded citations on IAF Day Referring to the CMRL advertisement, the judge observed that candidates whose qualification is more than the requirement for a post are not entitled to claim employment. In his order, the judge said, “In this case, the minimum required qualification has been clearly described with further indication that overqualified candidates need not apply.” “In view of what is stated herein-above, this court has no other option, but to hold that the petitioner is not entitled to the relief on account of over qualification and the present Writ Petition is liable to be dismissed. Accordingly, the Writ Petition is dismissed,” it said. Also Read – SC declines Oil Min request to stay sharing of documents on Reliance penalty The petitioner, pursuant to the Employment Notice of Chennai Metro Rail Limited (CMRL) issued on February 1, 2013, had applied for the post of Train Operation, Station Controller, Junior Engineer (Station) and successfully cleared the online test conducted on March 31 that year. Thereafter, the petitioner was asked to furnish proof regarding non-obtaining of Engineering degree as on July 23. The petitioner contended that though she had completed the B.E. course on June 21, 2013, the certificate to that effect was issued only a month later and at the time of application, she was not in possession of the degree, and only held a Diploma in Electronics and Communication Engineering. The petitioner further argued that she had not suppressed any information with regard to acquiring her engineering degree and therefore, her candidature has to be considered for appointment. In its counter affidavit, CMRL stated that there was a general instruction given to candidates applying for the post of Station Controller, Train Operator, Junior Engineer (Stations) that those with B.E., B.Tech or any other higher qualification are not eligible. Candidates with such higher qualification should keep in their mind that their candidature would be cancelled at any time of recruitment or even after appointment in CMRL, if they are found to have suppressed the information of having possessed B.E./B.Tech at the time of filling up the vacancy. It was further mentioned that the candidature of the petitioner was rejected on the ground of over-qualification and therefore, she was not entitled to any relief sought for. Concurring with the submissions, the judge dismissed the petition.last_img read more

6 million Afghans face alarming humanitarian situation UN warns

Despite strenuous UN efforts to shore up the relief effort in the country, “the reality is that the humanitarian assistance programme is already at a dangerously low ebb,” spokesperson Stephanie Bunker told reporters in Islamabad. “Millions of people will face serious shortages of food and water and other supplies within Afghanistan if we cannot deliver relief assistance,” she warned. Pre-famine conditions are likely to worsen, according to Ms. Bunker, who pointed out that an expected drop in temperatures could exacerbate the already dire situation. “Winter is expected to come as early as November this year and may potentially be severe,” she said. “This will have implications for vulnerable civilians, as well as aid delivery.”The UN Emergency Relief Coordinator, Kenzo Oshima, has mobilized UN country teams in Pakistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Iran and Tajikistan, together with the Islamabad-based Afghanistan country team, to prepare regional contingency and preparedness plans under the direction of the UN Coordinator for Afghanistan.Meanwhile, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) today reported that since the terrorist attacks against the United States last week, some 15,000 Afghans have fled to Pakistan. In a humanitarian update released in Geneva, UNHCR said that up to 10,000 Afghans crossed into Pakistan in the days immediately following the 11 September terrorist attacks against the United States. Another group of 5,000 Afghans are encamped just inside Pakistan at the Charman crossing point. “UNHCR is in talks with Pakistan’s Government on whether this group can be integrated into existing camps where shelter and water supplies are readily available, or whether the authorities will insist that new camps be established to shelter new arrivals – a time-consuming and expensive exercise,” the agency said. UNHCR, which has dispatched additional staff to Pakistan, is supplying the area with thousands of tents, blankets, jerry cans and kitchen sets. Inside Afghanistan, relief workers estimate that more than half the population of Kandahar has left, while people are also headed out of the western city of Herat. UN agencies have requested a total of $332.6 million to fund this year’s relief effort in Afghanistan. As of 10 September less than half that amount – $144.9 million – had been contributed. read more

Security Councils programme for October to be wideranging president says

Ambassador Mihnea Ioan Motoc also said the Council was shattered by the news that a United Nations security officer had been killed by a gunman in Somalia, “a difficult environment to operate in.”He told a news conference the issues before the Council in October would include the result of the 15 October election in Lebanon, the result of the referendum in Iraq scheduled for the same day, and the expected presentation on 24 October of Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s report on Kosovo. The Liberian election is scheduled for 11 October.The Council would also hold two thematic debates, he added. One, on 17 October, deals with cooperation between the UN and 10 major regional organizations on developments around the world. The other will be held on 27 October, the fifth anniversary of Security Council resolution 1325 (2000), which called for more information about women, gender, war and peace.Among the topics that had been discussed previously, Mr. Motoc said, he expected the Council to look again at the issues stemming from the situations of children in armed conflicts and Council resolution 1625, which focused on conflict prevention in general, but with specific reference to Africa.Answering a question on security in Somalia, Mr. Motoc said it was important to get the institutional and political process back on track according to the reconciliation framework that had previously been agreed by Somali factions and welcomed by the Council. This, he said, should bring more stability to the country, he noted, adding that the contribution of regional organizations, such as the African Union (AU), could be discussed. read more

TOMRA XRT ore sorter goes to work at Renison tin mine

first_imgMetals X and its joint venture partner Yunnan Tin have commenced commissioning of its new crushing and ore sorting facility at the Renison tin mine in Tasmania, Australia.The ore sorting equipment, provided by TOMRA, is expected to increase annual tin production at Renison by 15-20%, according to Metals X.Underground ore production at the 50:50 owned Bluestone Mines Tasmania JV is expected to increase to approximately 920,000 tonnes per year, while maintaining the processing plant at some 720,000 t/y.The TOMRA X-Ray transmission ore sorter will reject an estimated 200,000 t/y of waste at the crushing stage, upgrading the ore before the processing plant.In preparation for the introduction of ore sorting, additional areas within the underground mine have been developed, production rates have been increased and a significant surface stockpile of ore accumulated.The purpose-built three stage crushing, screening and ore sorting plant has been constructed at a capital cost of some A$15 million. The payback is estimated to be less than 10 months at current tin prices.With the commissioning of the ore sorter and the new tails dam already in operation, the major capital expenditure programme at Renison is complete.“The operation is now set up for the long term future, with increased production capacity and additional flexibility to allow the … JV to exploit the large resource base at Renison,” Metals X said.XRT sorting technology is increasingly being used in the mining sector in order to reduce the amount of waste processed through the comminution circuit. This, then, boosts the overall ore grade.last_img read more

Pesticides une association nationale pour défendre les victimes

first_imgPesticides : une association nationale pour défendre les victimes Des agriculteurs pour la plupart atteints de graves pathologies viennent de créer une association nationale de défense des victimes des pesticides : “Phyto-Victimes”. Cette association a pour but  de faire réagir les pouvoirs publics et de venir en aide aux malades.L’association “Phyto-Victimes” concerne les utilisateurs de produits phytosanitaires : des agriculteurs, viticulteurs, agents des espaces verts ou pépiniéristes qui sont pour la plupart atteints de cancers et de maladies neurologiques suite à l’utilisation durant plus de 10 ans de produits fongicides, insecticides ou herbicides. À lire aussiCancer : définition, causes, types, qu’est-ce que c’est ?Paul François préside l’association. Il est lui-même atteint de troubles neurologiques et immunitaires qui découlent de l’utilisation des pesticides employés dans son exploitation. Déjà, en mars 2010, il avait gagné son procès contre la firme Monsanto et avait obtenu la reconnaissance du caractère professionnel de sa maladie.  Il déclare à propos des membres de l’association : “Même si les produits sont homologués, ils ont l’impression qu’on ne leur a pas dit toute la vérité sur leur toxicité”. Pour tirer leçon du passé et de l’affaire de l’amiante, l’agriculteur a voulu réagir rapidement en créant cette association. Il précise en guise de conclusion : “On n’est pas là pour dire qu’il faut interdire les pesticides et passer au tout bio”. Le 24 mars 2011 à 19:47 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Notable records like “My Girl” and “I Heard It Through the Grapevine” made for an amusing part in the show where dynamic and fun guests played the game. 5.

Saving the girl child

first_imgIn the past few weeks, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been facing flak for not addressing the gross improprieties committed by certain senior leaders in his party. In fact on Sunday, he was criticised by opposition parties for failing to speak about the controversy involving the alleged links between former Indian Premier League Chairman Lalit Modi, Union External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje during his national radio address. However, what many opposition leaders seem to have forgotten in their rabid urge to criticise the prime minister is that he used his fortnightly radio address to focus on the girl child once again, calling for women to be gifted insurance policies on Raksha Bandhan. Selfies aside, the prime minister has taken a strong initiative on this front.  Also Read – Working on improving tiesThe insurance schemes initiated by the Centre, including Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyoti Bima Yojana, which requires a person to pay a premium of just Rs 330 per annum to get a life insurance of Rs 2 lakh and the PM Suraksha Bima Yojana, aimed at providing accidental insurance of Rs 2 lakh at a premium of Rs 12 per annum, are steps taken in the right direction. Allied with the Atal Pension Yojana, which offers a pension of up to Rs 5,000, these schemes, if implemented, could go some way in addressing gross crimes against women like female foeticide. Data released in April by the Women and Child Development ministry state that approximately 2,000 girls die every day in India from abortion, starvation, poisoned or killed after birth.  According to a survey by the Centre for Social Research, “the fear and burden of dowry, parting with a share in property and maintaining female chastity were the dominant reasons for a male child preference by the Delhi households”. Mind you, this is the national capital we are talking about. In the event of deeply entrenched social mores that are heavily biased against the girl child, providing economic incentives to families seem like the best way forward.   Also Read – Political parties and our RepublicThese schemes for young girls must brought in tandem with the Centre’s Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao (Save girl child, educate girl child) scheme, which  aims to generate awareness and improving the efficiency of welfare services meant for women. A more concrete version of the above scheme is the implementation of the Sukanya Samriddhi Account. According reports authored by the government, a saving account can be opened by the parent or legal guardian of a girl child of less than 10 years of age with a minimum deposit of Rs 1,000/- in any post office or authorised branches of commercial bank. Despite the plethora of schemes, implementation remains a problem. India is no stranger to schemes aimed at protecting young girls. According to a noted study by the Unite Nations Population Fund, “(Our) findings point to the need to simplify the eligibility criteria and conditionalities, and also the procedures of registration under each of these schemes.” In addition to these basic anomalies, there is a distinct lack of field-level monitoring of these schemes, besides a complete absence of grievance –redressal mechanisms. Poor coordination between financial institutions and government departments continues to hamper implementation, allied with poor participation from local village institutions. If Prime Minister Modi hopes to bring tangible change, he must, in close coordination with state governments, must address these issues urgently.last_img read more
