first_imgTeam India skipper Virat Kohli became the sixth Indian to complete 9000 ODI runs during the series-deciding third game against New Zealand. Kohli got to the landmark in the 37th over when he guided one off Grandhomme towards the third man for a four. While other Indians who have done so are Sachin Tendulkar, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Rahul Dravid, Sourav Ganguly and Mohammad Azharuddin, Kohli is, overall, the 19th batsman to breach the 9000-run mark in a record time of 202 innings. Earlier, Kohli also became the fastest player to reach 8000 one-day international runs, breaking the record held by South African skipper AB de Villiers for nearly two years. De Villiers reached the feat in 182 innings during a match against New Zealand in Durban. Kohli bettered that by a significant margin, taking only 175 innings. In a chain of records, earlier in the series, the Indian captain had surpassed Ricky Ponting in the list of most ODI hundreds with his 31st ton. Tendulkar tops the list with 49 hundreds and he is also the leading run-getter in the format.Over the time, team India has broken and established numerous records. Let’s take a look at 8 unique world records that Indian players hold:1. Mahendra Singh Dhoni Former Indian skipper, MS Dhoni became the first man to hit the 100-stumpings mark in ODIs. Dhoni achieved the landmark during the fifth and the final ODI against Sri Lanka at R.Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on September 3, 2017. Dhoni dislodged Akila Dananjaya’s bails to complete his century of stumpings.advertisement2. Virendra Sehwag Virender Sehwag is the only cricketer to have made more than 7500 runs in both ODIs and Tests as an opening batsman. As an opener Sehwag scored 8207 runs at an excellent average of 50.04 in red-ball cricket and accumulated 7518 runs at 36.50 in the 50-over format.3. Hardik Pandya Hardik Pandya, recently, added a unique feat to his name — he has hit three consecutive sixes four times in international cricket this year — becoming the first man to accomplish the landmark in the process. Pandya had done it twice against Pakistan during the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 tournament.4. KL Rahul On June 11, 2016, KL Rahul, who hit an elegant century on ODI debut against Zimbabwe in Harare, became the first player in cricket history to score a hundred in his maiden innings as an opening batsman in both Tests and One Day Internationals.5. Irfan Pathan Irfan Pathan is the first and the only bowler to claim a hat-trick in the first over of a Test match. The left-arm pacer picked up the wickets of Salman Butt, Younis Khan and Mohammad Yousuf on the 4th, 5th and the 6th ball respectively to achieve the unprecedented feat against Pakistan in Karachi in 2006.6. Bapu Nadkarni Bapu Nadkarni became the first bowler to deliver 21 consecutive maidens in a Test innings — the most by anyone from any nation. During his spell Nadkarni bowled 131 deliveries without giving away a single run.7. Ravichandran Ashwin Ravichandran Ashwin established a record for being the quickest to 25 five-wicket hauls — in 47 Tests — the fastest in Test cricket, outstripping Richard Hadlee’s feat in 62 matches.8. Ajinkya Rahane Ajinkya Rahane, a brilliant fielder, created a world record by becoming the first non-keeper cricketer to take eight catches in a Test match on August, 14, 2015.Interested in General Knowledge and Current Affairs?

first_imgManchester United Lukaku backed by Silvestre to beat Ronaldo’s Man Utd record Chris Burton Last updated 2 years ago 22:43 10/12/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Romelu Lukaku Manchester United Getty Images Manchester United Romelu Lukaku Premier League Cristiano Ronaldo The Belgian striker has enjoyed a productive opening to his time at Old Trafford and is expected to continue terrorising Premier League defences Romelu Lukaku is capable of setting a new record at Manchester United and topping Cristiano Ronaldo’s 31-goal Premier League haul in his first season, says Mikael Silvestre.The Portuguese forward took five years to hit that mark at Old Trafford, with a memorable 2007-08 campaign seeing him find the target 42 times in all competitions.Lukaku & Lacazette both to score 4/1 Article continues below Editors’ Picks Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. Lukaku remains some way off emulating those feats, but the £75 million striker has enjoyed a positive start to his time with United – netting 11 times in 10 appearances.Seven of those efforts have come in the English top-flight, and the 24-year-old is being backed to continue terrorising defences and write his own piece of Red Devils history.Silvestre, speaking to 888sport, said: “Lukaku can beat Ronaldo’s scoring record in season one.“It would be a big statement, personally for Romelu and the team as well. It would mean a lot and obviously mean they are in the race for the title.“We are just in October and a lot can happen until the end but he can carry on.”Cristiano Ronaldo Manchester United Premier League 31 goal recordWhile tipping Lukaku to be the main man for United this season, Silvestre concedes that he will need support.The likes of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford are offering that at present, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic preparing to step back into the fold.The enigmatic Swede, who netted 28 times for the Red Devils in 2016-17, is set to return in the near future after recovering from knee surgery and penning a short-term contract.Former United defender Silvestre added on Jose Mourinho’s pool of attacking talent: “Clearly the number one striker is Romelu but then the bench – and especially Zlatan – can have a big impact if you are still fighting for the four trophies.“There will be a time when Romelu needs to rest because so far he’s played in every game. Zlatan will have a role to play but obviously not as much as last season.“If you are United, City, Tottenham, Liverpool, Chelsea or Arsenal you need two high quality strikers if you want to win the Premier League.”United have made an unbeaten start to their 2017-18 campaign, with Stoke the only side to have denied them victory in 10 outings to date.They will be back in action on Saturday, with Mourinho’s men taking in a trip to Anfield to face old adversaries Liverpool.Read the full 888sport interview with Mikael Silvestre, including his thoughts on the one player better than Paul Scholes in his time at Manchester Unitedlast_img read more

first_imgBeijing: China on Friday urged India and Pakistan to hold dialogue to resolve their disputes even as it stuck to its earlier position, asking India to stop “unilaterally changing the status quo” of Kashmir. The Chinese response came after Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi arrived here to consult Beijing on the next steps to be taken in the wake of New Delhi revoking the special status of Jammu and Kashmir. In a written response, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said: “We call on Pakistan and India to resolve disputes through dialogue and negotiation and jointly uphold regional peace and stability.” “The pressing priority is that the relevant party should stop unilaterally changing the status quo and avoid escalation of tension,” said China without directly referring to India’s decision to revoke Article 370.last_img read more

first_imgFez- King Mohammed VI on Sunday held a phone conversation with Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al-Thani, Emir of the State of Qatar. The conversation comes few days after Sheikh Abullah Bin Nasser Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, Prime Minister and Minister of Interior paid a visit to Morocco. According to Qatar News Agency (QANA), during the phone call “the Emir and the Moroccan monarch discussed bilateral relations between the two brotherly countries, matters of mutual concern and reviewed regional and international developments”.This phone call comes against the backdrop of an unprecedented diplomatic crisis between the State of Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, after the three countries decided to withdraw their Ambassador from Doha in recent weeks. This is first time in the history of the Gulf Cooperation Council (a grouping that includes Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Kuwait and Oman) that a crisis of such a nature occurs between its members. The three countries blame Doha for its alleged support for the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Jazeera channel’s coverage of Egypt, since former President Mohammed Morsi was toppled in July 2013. Among all other Arab countries, Morocco is the only Arab country that has excellent relations with all the members of the GCC, including the State of Kuwait and Oman. Will this status enable King Mohammed VI to play a mediation role and ease tension between the State of Qatar and its neighboring countries? Time will tell. © Morocco World News. All Rights Reserved.

HALIFAX — Though it wasn’t a full-fledged hurricane when it made landfall in Nova Scotia, the hurricane-force winds from post-tropical storm Dorian caused extensive damage to the electric grids in all three Maritime provinces over the weekend.At one point, about 500,000 homes and businesses in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and P.E.I. were left in the dark as Dorian flattened trees and ravaged property across the region.By late Sunday, that number had dropped considerably, but the full extent of the damage was still unknown. Hurricane Dorian causing widespread power outages in the Maritimes Canada sends additional military support to the Bahamas after Hurricane Dorian Hurricane Dorian floods island as it swipes North Carolina then heads north In Halifax, the CEO of Nova Scotia Power Inc. said the utility was facing a huge task in reconnecting customers as the brawny storm moved away from the province and on to western Newfoundland.“This is an exercise of days, not hours,” Karen Hutt told a news conference. “We’re operating in our worst-case scenario.”A utility spokeswoman confirmed that with more than 400,000 customers without power as of Sunday morning, 80% of Nova Scotia’s homes and businesses were blacked out — the highest number of outages in the company’s history.In Prince Edward Island, about 75% of homes and businesses had no electricity by Sunday afternoon, according to the province’s Public Safety Department.One utility spokeswoman described Dorian as a “beast of a storm.”Meanwhile, widespread blackouts affecting up to 80,000 NB Power customers were reported in southern New Brunswick and along the province’s Acadian Peninsula.Though Dorian made landfall just west of Halifax as a post-tropical storm on Saturday night, the large storm battered a huge swath of the Maritimes with sustained winds reaching almost 150 kilometres per hour in some areas, putting the storm’s power on par with a Category 2 hurricane.Though utility crews were fanning out to complete repairs Sunday, Hutt said the repair work in Nova Scotia would stretch into next week.“We are still in a very dangerous situation in some parts of the province,” she said, adding that the utility had crews aboard four helicopters surveying the damage.“When there is a downed power line, do not take any chances at all. Immediately call 911 and we will dispatch one of our crews to take care of it.”Hutt asked those without power to be patient, saying she understood many people were frustrated by the company’s inability to promise specific repair deadlines.She said additional crews had been called in from Quebec, Ontario, New Brunswick, Florida and Maine.Nova Scotia Premier Stephen McNeil praised the utility for its response to Dorian.“They’ve done a tremendous job of dispersing their technicians across the province,” he said from his home in the Annapolis Valley.Meanwhile, emergency officials in Nova Scotia were urging people to stay home, but it was clear many weren’t listening.“All the people who are lined up on the roads waiting for coffee, they are actually impeding our crews from getting out there,” said Erica Fleck, Halifax’s assistant chief of community risk reduction.“We can’t clear the roads unless we can get to them, and 300 cars at drive-thrus in different locations is stopping our progress.”Heavy traffic was reported in parts of Halifax as gawkers headed downtown to have a look at a construction crane that had collapsed into an empty apartment building still under construction. Others wanted to see the city’s slightly mangled waterfront boardwalk, or the other apartment complex with a missing roof.At least four homes in Halifax also lost their roofs. Many others were damaged by upended trees.About 300 soldiers from Canadian Forces Base Gagetown in central New Brunswick were expected to help with cleaning up debris and restoring electricity on Sunday afternoon, a military official confirmed. Another 400 “immediate reaction forces” were on standby.Across the region, residents got to work cleaning up Dorian’s mess.Joseph Elias, 85, stood in the hallway of his home on his quiet residential street, looking outside at the aged oak tree that had toppled onto the house where he’s lived for 25 years.“We were sitting down by the window and we heard a big bang,” he recalled. “It’s kind of hard to go outside the front door because there are branches all over it.”On the east side of Halifax harbour, Dartmouth resident Ronnie Van Dommelen said his home lost power on Saturday night when a large tree fell over.“It went down and pulled down my power and my neighbour’s power,” he said, surveying the wires, which were pulled tight toward his front lawn at a sharp angle.“The sound of the wind was like a continuous howl that would get worse every once in a while.”In New Brunswick, crews worked through the night to restore power, transit services were delayed in Moncton on Sunday morning and many intersections were without working traffic lights.Officials in Saint John, N.B., urged citizens to keep their distance from fallen trees in the town’s historic King’s Square, which have “deep historical relevance and significance.”In Newfoundland, hurricane and tropical storm warnings remained in effect for much of the province’s west and north coasts. On the western side of the island, Dorian continued to tear up trees and yank down power lines.In the Gulf of St. Lawrence, Dorian’s winds battered Quebec’s Iles-de-la-Madeleine, where gusts of up to 120 km/m ripped roofs off buildings, uprooted trees and knocked out power to much of the island chain.At one point, over 7,000 homes were without power — representing nearly all of Hydro-Quebec’s customers there.Environment Canada said the islands could expect “storm to hurricane force winds” and heavy rainfall that would gradually diminish as Dorian headed toward Newfoundland. read more

Mohawks Fauxhawks And Macklemores The TopHeavy Hairdos of the World Cup

If there have been breakout stars at this year’s World Cup, they’re certainly the bold hairstyles sported on some of the world’s top teams. There are seemingly countless mohawks, faux-hawks and ‘dos that can really only be called a “Macklemore” on the pitch at the premier soccer tournament.Countless, that is, before today.We pored through each of the 56 World Cup games so far to inventory the haircuts of the starting lineups for each of the 32 teams in the tournament. We counted up every striking mohawk, all of the slightly less committed faux-hawks and, of course, the lamentable-in-retrospect Macklemores.All told, in the group stage we counted 24 honest-to-God Mohawks, 31 faux-hawks and a whopping 36 Mackelmores.Neymar of Brazil, of course, is in a league of his own.So is Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Ermin Bicakcic:At five apiece, the Ghanaian and Cameroonian contingents had more mohawks than any other squad. Together, those two teams composed more than 40 percent of all inventoried mohawks. The Nigerian team had the most faux-hawks, and the Chileans had the most Macklemores (five and four, respectively). Russia, Costa Rica, Honduras and Australia were the only nations with unexciting, uninspiring hair.Now we wouldn’t think hairstyle would have any effect on performance. And it doesn’t. We plotted the combined number of mo’s, faux’s and ‘mores against the number of points each team picked up in the group phase:That’s pretty hairy (forgive us). But when we break it down by style, something fantastic emerges. It appears that Macklemore-style haircuts are positively correlated with victory, and mohawks with defeat.And the trend has continued into the first knockout round. Of the eight games in the Round of 16, four matches had a team with a higher number of Macklmore-style haircuts than their competition. In those four contests, the team with more shaved sides and gross tops won 75 percent of the time.Is it a small sample size? Yes. Is it completely meaningless? Yes. Is there a shred of evidence that the hairstyles of a team member has any sort of impact on the athletic performance of a team? Absolutely not.But still. read more

first_imgAhead of the Mine panning and design article in the February issue of International Mining, RungePincockMinarco (RPM) has just announced what it describes as “a significant improvement to the way mine planning data is managed and communicated with the launch of new enterprise application, Plan Manager.“Plan Manager delivers an innovative new method for managing planning data across the mine planning horizons, from life of mine to execution planning and every stage in between. It delivers greater accuracy, auditability and a defined and repeatable process for merging planning data.”Plan Manager enables enterprise users to view, analyse and approve mine plans across different planning horizons (Life of Mine, Long Term, Medium Term, Short Term and Ultra Short Term) and then publish an integrated plan in a variety of formats (including ISA-95 B2MML) up to the enterprise level. The consolidated mine plan can then be consumed by enterprise financial systems, process control and fleet management systems and then analysed through the corporate business intelligence systems.Commenting on the release, Richard Mathews, CEO and Managing Director, said “Managing the interactions between planning horizons has traditionally been a significant challenge for the industry. A wide range of planning applications is used by different planning departments, often operating in silos. This has meant that the gap between a Life of Mine plan and the weekly schedule has been wider than desired. The introduction of Plan Manager finally bridges this gap.“The RPM product management team has spent considerable time with mine planners in one of RPM’s key tier one mining clients during 2015 unravelling the complexities of this issue across many different mining operations and planning horizons culminating in RPM releasing its Plan Manager product.”Plan Manager supports a level of detail that is appropriate to each planning horizon, with the ability to update sections of the plan without touching data that has not changed. This means that the re-planning process is faster and more efficient. Plan Manager can also pull in task status information, stockpile balances, grades and external plan inputs such as rail schedules and make them available to different mine scheduling applications.The full plan history functionality within Plan Manager provides users with a complete audit trail for submitted and approved plans. It allows all plans that have been submitted to be checked to ensure their validity. These checks and balances deliver greater visibility and control around the entire plan consolidation process, which also comes with security built into the workflow so that the plan approval process and automated publishing is delivered with confidence.last_img read more

Niko Kovac planning for Boateng stay

first_imgBayern Munich boss Niko Kovac is optimistic Jerome Boateng will stay with the Bundesliga Champions but revealed the defender could still move away before the end of August.Boateng lasted the entire 90 minutes in Bayern’s narrow 1-0 DFB-Pokal victory over minnows Drochtersen/Assel, with Lewandowski netting the solitary goal late on.The former Man City defender claimed at the end of last season that he would be open to a new challenge after seven years at the Allianz Arena, with Bayern unlikely to stand in the way of an exit.However, Kovac believes the 29-year-old will still be at the club come September.“If anything happens at the end of the transfer period then we see, it may happen,” said Kovac.RB Leipzig, Bayern Munich, Robert LewadowskiMatch Preview: RB Leipzig vs Bayern Munich Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 RB Leipzig will have the chance to prove their title-winning capabilities when they host Bayern Munich today at 18:30 (CET).“But I’m going to assume that nothing happens, I’m glad that he got through this game very well.”Kovac won the competition with Eintracht Frankfurt the last term, and the victory represents his second competitive win as Bayern boss following the DFL-Supercup triumph over his former club last time out.“It was a difficult game, as it always happens in the first round of the cup,” said Kovac.“We did not really want that.

Solskjaer suffers but keeps unbeaten run at Man United

first_imgThrilling final minutes at Old Trafford as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United rescued a point against Burnley, Pogba and Lindelof saved the night.Just today we were talking about the many similarities that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s spell with Manchester United is having with Zinedine Zidane’s time at Real Madrid and he comes to save a result with a struck of good fortune.The French manager was always described as one of the luckiest figures in football history, a fortune that the Norwegian boss has proved that he also possesses.This Tuesday at Old Trafford, the Red Devils were going to play an apparently easy match against Burnley but the outcome was way more suffered than anyone expected.Sean Dyche’s squad got the advantage during the second half through Ashley Barnes after Andreas Pereira made a terrible mistake by losing a ball in a very sensitive area on the pitch, the Burnley striker didn’t disappoint his teammates and scored the first goal of the match early in the second half after a very disputed first period between both squads.Manchester United really struggled to get goal throughout the game, they even fell behind by two goals in the final ten minutes after a Chris Wood header gave Burnley the second goal of the evening.Watch #MUFC’s late fightback on our Official App now…— Manchester United (@ManUtd) January 30, 2019Every single Red Devils’ fan was silenced after this moment, but they immediately started supporting the players who never surrendered.You could see a very nervous Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who was biting his nails on the sidelines, he was asking his players to not give up and search for the goal that would bring them enough confidence to get that result that could save the unbeaten run.The first key moment finally came on the ’87 minute as Jesse Lingard was knocked down inside the box and a penalty was awarded for United, Paul Pogba scored the first for the Red Devils with a shot directed at the goalkeeper’s top right corner.This response was the one that prompted heart-stopping final minutes at Old Trafford, that nearly brought the house down as the fans never gave up on their quest for that equalizer.In the very final moments, Lingard himself served an assist to Alexis Sanchez’s head for a proper connection that goalkeeper Heaton rejected but left the loose ball to David Lindelof’s strike with a very small angle.Manchester United had done it, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer didn’t seem happy with the result because he clearly felt that the Red Devils should’ve won that match.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.”We know we could have performed better but the reaction was brilliant. To get two goals after 87 minutes – that’s fantastic.”— Manchester United (@ManUtd) January 30, 2019The manager was a roller coaster of emotions during the press conference, he wasn’t happy with the team because they didn’t win the game but he was thrilled by their fighting spirit that was able to last until the very last minute of the match.The boss refused to blame anybody for the goals the squad received, he preferred to value the positive aspects of the result.“On the way up here, I was stopped so many times by the staff, so many people saying: ‘Great spirit, fighting spirit, and the way they came back was fantastic’,” he told a news conference via Four Four Two. “So, of course, happy with a point, but we could have got three even at the end, but we just ran out of time. We started too late with the urgency.”“That’s a learning curve, but now you’ve got your answer to ‘can they come back if they go one down or two down?’ Even so, I’m very happy with the response.”“Lining up Pereira was the right decision to make. We had a couple of niggles and unfortunately he [Pereira] was involved in the first goal, but that’s the whole team.”“We played our way into trouble there.

first_imgBack before Skyrim was the hottest open-world, modding machine on the market, a certain blogger put over 200 hours in Oblivion without ever having begun the very first quest in the game. The Elder Scrolls games are celebrated for packing so much content into a single title that you could play indefinitely. Even though players might forget it ever happened, the games try to have a narrative on top of the open-world exploration and cave-diving, and unlike the non-linear gameplay that has come to define the series, that narrative has a set beginning, middle, and end. On average, it takes about 31.5 hours to complete the story. Rushing through it takes about 19 hours on average. Speed runner DrTChops completed the story in 39 minutes and 32 seconds.Back in 2011, Skyrim was completed in an extremely short two hours and 16 minutes. Now, three years later, DrTChops managed to beat the game in around a third of time.The run had no completion requirements other than speed, and in the speed running world, classifies as an “any percentage” run. The run clocks in with two different times — one with load times, and one without. The 39:32 mark is without load times, while the time with loads clocks in at 45:12.If you’re wondering how a game as stuffed full of content as Skyrim can be completed in under 40 minutes, you can head over to a Skyrim speed run database and spend the rest of your night becoming very intimate with the run’s various strategies.last_img read more

Sony to release a professional grade OLED screen

first_img More information: Sony press release: pro.sony.com/bbsccms/assets/fi … _series-HPA_2011.pdf The new monitors will not be cheap. The 25-inch model is expected to cost $28,840. Despite how high that number seems when you compare it to the average home LCD monitor, it will only cost about 10 percent more than the LCD monitors that are currently in production for the film industry. OLED screens are already common in smaller gadgets, such as cell phones and other handheld devices. This document is subject to copyright.

The monitor, which was designed for the TV and film production industries, is set to go on sale on May 1. They are expected to be used in locations such as editing bays, satellite trucks and broadcasting control rooms. The OLED screen will have a 25-inch screen. A second model, one that features a smaller 17-inch screen, is expected to go on sale on the first of July. Explore further The OLED is a flat-panel screen technology made up of cells that contain an organic material. The material used omits its own light. This allows the screens to be made thinner than the more well-known LCDs flat screens. The OLED screens are also more power efficient than LCD screens. OLED’s are significantly more expensive to produce than LCD screens, which has hindered their wide-scale adoption, but they handle fast-moving images better. The colors also appear richer on the OLED screens when compared to images shown on the LCDs. Sony hosted a live demonstration of the new monitors at its Tokyo headquarters and played the same video footage on OLED and LCD monitors side-by-side to illustrate this point.
