Virat Kohli thrilled with Mohammed Shami in the ranks for West Indies tour

first_imgIndia’s Test captain Virat Kohli is delighted that a skillful fast bowler like Mohammed Shami is back in the team as he possesses the ability to hit the “perfect Test match length”, which would be necessary for the upcoming tour of the West Indies. (Virat Kohli wants India to press hard in Test arena)Shami had been out of international cricket for more than 15 months after the 2015 World Cup, where he bowled with an injured knee. He later underwent a surgery and missed the series against Sri Lanka and South Africa. (Kohli says Wriddhiman Saha is India’s first choice wicket-keeper in Tests) On what he feels on Shami’s return as he has not played a lot of cricket save a few IPL matches and club games, Kohli answered: “Shami is obviously a very skillful guy and we all know that. He has a lot of ability with the ball. The way he releases and pitches the ball, it’s more than perfect for Test cricket. I mean the line and length that he hits is always attacking no matter how the wicket is.” (Dhoni and Kumble lead India into Drum Circle session)KOHLI HAILS SHAMI’S SKILLSKohli then went on to explain what makes Shami a cut above the rest in the longer version. (Also Read: Dhoni’s message to Team India – Have fun in life, you will be successful)”The best thing is if its seaming and swinging, he can bowl the conventional line and length. If it’s reverse swinging, he knows exactly where to bring the ball from. He has a great sense and feel of how to get a batsman out. We are working on the aspect of mental strength of his game. The thing that we push for him is more consistency.”advertisementKohli said after a long lay-off (about 15 months) from the Indian team, Shami is hungry to perform well in Tests against the West Indies.”He had a great season before he got injured. He couldn’t play the World T20 due to injury, so I am sure he is eager to make a comeback and prove (his worth) all over again,” said Kohli.last_img read more

Western Schools Ready for New School Year

first_imgStory Highlights “It sure helps and makes life a lot easier if there is the belief that all hands are on deck,” says Principal for the John Rollins Success Primary School in Barrett Town, St. James, Yvonne Williams-Wisdom. This optimism, they note, stems from the ever increasing willingness of parents to get involved in school activities, and also what they are calling “a more transparent and proactive approach” on the part of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information and its regional bodies in engaging teachers, principals and other stakeholders in meaningful dialogue. Educators in western Jamaica say they are approaching the 2018/2019 academic year with a renewed sense of optimism.

Of course, we will still have our fair share of challenges, but from where I sit, I am confident we are ready for the start of the new school year,” she says.For her part, Vice-Principal of Godfrey Stewart High School in Westmoreland, Emily Ricketts, says while challenges continue, one of the main pressure points is the increasing number of requests by students and their parents for transfer to her school.“Godfrey Stewart has emerged as a school of choice for many students in Westmoreland. Unfortunately, especially so close to the start of back-to-school, we are unable to accommodate many of the transfer requests we have been getting,” she says.Ms. Ricketts tells JIS News that because of early preparations throughout the summer, the school is well prepared to open its doors for students come Monday.“We are all very positive and excited about the prospects of a very good school year,” she adds.Over at Maldon Primary in Maroon Town, St. James, optimism for the new school term could not be any higher. “We continue to have our fair share of problems with water and also the need for some infrastructural upgrade at our facility,” Principal Audrey Bernard-Kilbourne explained.“We, however, have been good and adept at working with what we have, and our dedicated teachers and students are ready for whatever lies ahead. Yes, we are ready for the new school term,” she says.In the meantime, over in Montego Bay at Cornwall College, Principal, Michael Ellis, says expectations are also high.“September morning will be a new day for Cornwall College,” he told the gathering at a recent graduation ceremony for the Cornwall College Class of 2018 at the Montego Bay Convention Centre.The Principal notes that the new school term will be seeing the ushering of a new master plan –‘Operation Regain and Retain’ –a plan aimed at returning Cornwall College to its famed glory days.last_img read more

 

Djiboutis DCT Pens Port Deal with PIL

first_imgzoom Djibouti’s Doraleh Container Terminal Management Company has signed a contract with Singapore-based shipping company Pacific International Lines (PIL), which is set to bolster cargo volume at the terminal by 33 pct, the Djibouti Ports and Free Zones Authority (DPFZA) said.Namely, the port deal is expected to bring an additional 300,000 TEU containers to the terminal per annum.“This agreement is a first important step towards Doraleh Container Terminal (DCT) fulfilling its capacity potential,” the ports authority is cited by Reuters as saying.The contract comes on the heels of Djibouti’ termination of the concession contract with Dubai-based port and terminal operator DP World for the operation of DCT.The decision has prompted DP World to launch new arbitration proceedings in London against the Government of Djibouti.DP World dubbed the move “illegal seizure of control” and a culmination of the government’s campaign “to force the company” to renegotiate the terms of the concession.The Government of Djibouti, on the other hand, attributed the decision to the poor performance of the container terminal.According to a statement from Djibouti Ports and Free Zones Authority, since 2008, DCT has achieved only 57 pct of its total volume, despite operating in a favorable import/export environment.“In the meantime, DP World developed other ports in the countries close to Djibouti and used aggressive tactics such as the deliberate slowing of the development of DCT in favor of their main asset at Jebel Ali,” DPFZA said.Djibouti has since assumed management of DCT, which has been placed under the authority of the Doraleh Container Terminal Management Company. The terminal has a capacity of 1.6 million TEUs per year.last_img read more

Amazon locks in capacity in Canada with strategic Cargojet deal

Peter J. Thompson/National Post files A $600-million partnership between Cargojet Inc. and Amazon.com Inc. will give the online retailer the option to purchase nearly 15 per cent of the Mississauga-based air cargo carrier over the next seven and a half years.The deal sent Cargojet’s stock soaring by more than 20 per cent Friday morning before falling back a bit, even though analysts said the deal doesn’t materially change the financial outlook for the company.“It’s just basically intertwining their interests,” said Nick Corcoran, an analyst for Calgary-based Acumen Capital. Inside Amazon and Shopify’s race to master time and space in e-commerce Cargojet breaks even in first quarter compared with a profit a year ago FedEx won’t be flying Amazon parcels around the U.S. anymore “I don’t see this changing my numbers, but I think this just addresses one of investors’ concerns about the stock, in that people didn’t really know what Amazon’s strategy would be.”Under the deal, Cargojet will issue warrants to Amazon allowing for the purchase of up to 9.9 per cent of voting shares over a six and a half year period at $91.78 per share, if Amazon delivers up to $400 million in business volume over the same period. The share price was determined by the volume-weighted 30-day average immediately before the deal was reached.Amazon will have the option to purchase another five per cent of Cargojet if the e-commerce giant brings in another $200-million worth of business, after the first tranche of warrants has vested.Ultimately, several analysts said the deal offers certainty to both companies, and it’ll give Amazon an opportunity to benefit from Cargojet’s success.Robert Kokonis, president and managing director of AirTrav Inc., a Toronto-based aviation consulting business, said the deal indicates how important e-commerce is becoming in the world of shipping and logistics. “At the end of the day, it’s all about locking up capacity, right? Because in the world of e-commerce giants and whatnot, there’s only a certain amount of airline capacity out there, unless you yourself want to go out and buy jets, which is an expensive proposition,” Kokonis said.“Why would you want to take that risk? Let CargoJet be the one to go out and secure those assets.”In recent years, Amazon has made a major push to build out a network of warehouses and shipping infrastructure, in order to drive faster delivery times for customers.A recent study by RBC Capital Markets found that today roughly 57 per cent of Canadian households are served by same-day or one-day shipping, compared to 16 per cent of Canadian households in 2015.According to an RBC survey at the end of 2018, 85 per cent of Canadians had purchased something from Amazon, compared to just 32 per cent of respondents buying from Walmart Inc., the second-place e-commerce provider.To service their e-commerce volumes, Amazon has opened seven fulfillment centres across the country, with two more scheduled to open later this year in Ottawa and the Greater Toronto Area. Each of the two new fulfillment centres are around one million square feet.The cluster of five Amazon fulfillment centres in the GTA was enough to make Kokonis wonder if Cargojet will shift operations in order to better accommodate Amazon.“I don’t know if (this deal) might change things. Would Cargojet, for example, look to establish a secondary hub at Toronto Pearson airport?” he said.“Cargojet’s big hub is in Hamilton at the John C. Munro International Airport and this is really going to give an additional, further boost to that airport.”On a call with analysts, Cargojet management emphasized that the deal doesn’t buy Amazon preferential treatment on shipping, even though they have an option to buy a piece of the company.Cargojet founder, President and CEO Ajay Virmani at his Mississauga, Ont., offices, in August 2016. “It is worth emphasizing that a stronger targeted network is beneficial to all our existing customers,” said Ajay Virmani, president and chief executive officer. “Whenever we have added a major customer in the past the expanded and enhanced network was made available to all our customers. This created a new opportunity for everyone, (and) we will continue with that philosophy.”Virman also noted that for now Cargojet’s existing fleet can handle the workload.“(But) if the volume grows, as you know e-commerce is growing tremendously in this country, and if we see the need to expand, we definitely will. But at present time I think we can handle it for the next couple of years.”• Email: jmcleod@nationalpost.com | Twitter: read more

Noonan We will deal with medical card issues after the election

first_img Noonan, Hayes and Mitchell in Dublin just now. #election2014 #finegael pic.twitter.com/zHTAwLqjBZ— Órla Ryan (@orlaryan) May 20, 2014 Updated 11.11pmMICHAEL NOONAN HAS said the government will review its approach to discretionary medical cards after this week’s European and local elections.The finance minister said action would not be taken on the matter this week to avoid it being dismissed as a “stunt”.The review of medical cards has to be changed. We’re not going to do it before the election because we’d be accused, probably, of some kind of stunt. Shortly after the election that issue will be at rest, preparatory work has been done already.The government has been sharply criticised recently after many people lost their rights to the cards.Noonan was speaking at an event in Dublin this afternoon where he and outgoing MEP Gay Mitchell officially endorsed Fine Gael’s European election candidate in the capital, Brian Hayes.Noonan said that he was initially “disappointed” when he found out that Hayes, who is the junior minister at the department of finance, was going to run for a seat in Europe.He said Hayes was the right person for the job but, if elected, it would mean a huge loss to the both department and him personally.Hayes returned the favour, describing Noonan as the “glue” that holds Fine Gael and Labour together.He also welcomed Noonan’s recent promise of income tax breaks in this and next year’s budgets. Source: Órla Ryan/Twittercenter_img “More money in people’s pockets will encourage spending in the domestic economy which only incentivises job creation. The best and fairest economic stimulus of all is a tax cut. Supporting job growth must remain the clear focus of government and tax breaks for people at work is the logical next step,” Hayes stated.He added that many emigrants are not coming home due to our “penal” tax rates.Opinion pollsNoonan denied Labour’s poor showing in recent polls was a cause for concern, saying all coalition ministers were doing “a very good job”.Noonan said opinion polls often gave “contradictory” information during what is a “very volatile campaign”. He added that while out canvassing with Ireland South candidate he encountered “very little friction on the doorstep”.We signed up for five years … our job is not finished.He stressed the importance of voting in the local election, saying councillors “will decide how people’s taxes are spent”.Mitchell, who has been an MEP for Dublin since 2004, said Hayes was the “right man” to send to Europe.In the European Parliament it’s more to do with perseverance, networking, contact with the group you’re a member of. The European People’s Party, with which Fine Gael is affiliated, is the most respected and is going to be the biggest group [in the Parliament].Mitchell said an effective MEP was someone who could negotiate and compromise, not a person who would always complain and ”jump up and down”.- First published 4.16pmRead: ‘They took the medical card from our little girl.

Japans IR Promotion Headquarters sets 1 April deadline for implementation of Casino

first_img Suncity Group looking to develop new resort hotel in Okinawa, Japan after US$10 million land purchase Osaka approves Yumeshima site for commercial development in latest IR move Load More RelatedPosts Suncity Group, Bloomberry Resorts unveil Wakayama IR visions Japan’s IR Promotion Headquarters has outlined its intention to implement three key lines of work, including the establishment of the country’s Casino Administration Committee, by 1 April 2019.The plan was revealed on Tuesday by Toshiya Morishige, Secretary General of the IR Promotion Headquarters, at a study session for municipalities hosted by the Japan IR Association and taking place in the 2nd House of Representatives diet member’s hall. The process of developing Japan’s IR has been on schedule since the promulgation of the IR Development Act in July of last year. “The IR Promotion Headquarters is currently proceeding with three lines of work. Of these, a government bill is in the works. We intend to complete the procedures this fiscal year for implementation on 1 April,” Morishige said.Toshiya MorishigeAs well as establishment of a Casino Administration Committee, the three lines of work also include preparation of a government ordinance and preparing a basic policy to be drafted by the Minister of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism.This also includes the collection of public comments regarding the “IR (specified complex tourist facilities region) Development and Promotion Ordinance (draft)” as announced on 1 February and previously reported by IAG. The deadline for these comments was 4 March.Morishige also explained at Tuesday’s meeting the basics of International Conference Halls and Exhibition facilities, with MICE to form an essential part of Japan’s IRs.Japan is looking to make its IR MICE facilities among the largest in the world, with an international conference hall with a maximum capacity of over 6,000 people.

Electronic monitoring available for smaller fishing boats

first_imgFishing boats in Petersburg’s South Harbor (KFSK file photo)The National Marine Fisheries has published a final rule allowing use of electronic monitoring instead of an on-board human observer for smaller longline and pot gear fishing vessels. The final rule published Tuesday, August 8 allows vessels under 60 feet fishing for halibut and groundfish to volunteer for video camera monitoring for next year’s season.Chris Rilling is the director of the fisheries monitoring and analysis division at the agency’s Alaska Fisheries Science Center in Seattle.“Many of these vessels have had limitations in terms of space or life raft capacity for carrying an observer and so we’ve been working with these vessels to develop electronic monitoring alternatives to collect the data we need for management purposes,” Rilling explained this week.A series of cameras is used to document fish species that are caught, kept or tossed back overboard. That information is used to manage fisheries. One camera also monitors compliance rules on discarding fish overboard along with seabird avoidance measures used on each boat.The rule applies to part of the fleet that’s under partial coverage; not every boat is required to carry an observer. Instead observers have been placed on randomly selected boats. 90 vessels volunteered to be in the program this year, what’s called a “pre-implementation phase.” This final rule makes the voluntary video monitoring permanent and it takes effect September 7th. The deadline to apply to take part in electronic monitoring for next year is November 1st. All boats, even those already entered in this year’s phase have to re-apply by that date in order to take part next year.Dan Falvey of the industry group Alaska Longline Fishermen’s Association thinks electronic monitoring (EM) in its first phase has been working well.“We’ve been in pre-implementation for two years now and every year more boats indicate an interest in signing up,” Falvey said. “Mostly it’s just because they’re learning about EM systems and making a decision whether taking a camera and turning it on when selected is more compatible with their vessel operations than trying to take a human observer out.”Falvey said the final rule is a long time coming. He credited Senator Lisa Murkowski for persuading the agency to consider the alternative type of monitoring and thanks the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation for grant funding to industry associations for the program.Groundfish boats already pay a one and a quarter percent landing fee for the observer program. The federal agency this year and next is covering the cost of video monitoring. Starting in 2019, that money will pay for both human observers and electronic monitoring.The agency expects coverage on around 30 percent of trips next year. That’s higher than the coverage rate for observers on those boats this year. Other fleets in Alaska are already using electronic monitoring mainly for compliance with fishing regulation and limits.Boats eligible to apply for the electronic monitoring will be getting a letter from the federal agency. The online application system is not expected to be up and running until later this summer. Once it is functioning fishermen can apply here or contact a call center at 1-855-747-6377.last_img read more

PM Hasina says splitting any party isnt her policy

first_imgPrime minister Sheikh Hasina speaks at a press conference at her official residence Ganabhaban in Dhaka city on Friday. Photo: PIDPrime minister Sheikh Hasina on Friday said it is not her policy to divide any party or do anything that leads a party to a split.”To divide a party or to do anything (harmful) to any party isn’t my policy. We usually get many proposals…I’m very much rigid about it,” she said while responding to a question at a press conference at her official residence Ganabhaban.The press conference was convened to brief the media about the outcomes of the official visit of the prime minister to Brunei from 21 to 23 April last.Sheikh Hasina said those who formed parties under the purview of agencies they know their path very well. “They sought their shelter there…it’s not a matter to divide a party… why should we go for that? ” she questioned.Hasina, also the chief of the ruling party, firmly said Awami League has enough manpower and followers, and it does not need any more from other parties.”AL itself is enough to ensure the welfare of people,” she said.The prime minister said every party has its own characteristics and they are very much independent to take any decision regarding their own party as the country has multiparty democratic system.”BNP is a political party; whatever it does it is its own political decision. Any other party cannot impose their decisions on them,” she said.Regarding the oath-taking move by a BNP MP defying the party decision, Hasina said there is no pressure from the government on the elected MPs to take oath.”Why should we put pressure on them… they’ve already said the people of their own constituencies are mounting pressure on them… they took the oath on their own,” she said.Hasina mentioned that the BNP MP after taking his oath said he would speak for his own party in parliament.Responding to a question about the much-talked-about parole of Khaleda Zia, the prime minister said for availing of parole one has to apply first. “So far, no one has applied for that,” she added.last_img read more

Netflix Sets Javier Gutierrez Mario Casas for Hogar

first_img“Javier Muñoz, our leading man, is the broken mirror where the most materialistic aspirations of modern society are reflected,” they added, calling the film “our most personal and bold proposal.”Netflix has signed one talent deal in Spain, with Alex Pina, the creator of “Money Heist” (“La casa de papel”). Since releasing its first Netflix Original film order in Spain with Roger Gual’s “Seven Years,” Netflix has moved, however, to collaborate on a single film basis with outstanding Spanish directors such as Isabel Coixet, on the upcoming lesbian drama “Eliza and Marcela,” and Daniel Sánchez Arévalo, who is working on coming of age drama “Diecisiete.”Netflix also announced recently that Argentine director Gabriela Tagliavini is directing “A pesar de todo,” a female-focused comedy road trip film starring Spanish superstars Blanca Suárez, Macarena García, Amaia Salamanca and Belén Cuesta. All three of these new films are scheduled for release in 2019. A thriller, turning on an “obsession” which “knows no limits,” Netflix announced in a statement Tuesday, “Hogar” exploits the Spanish sense of “hogar” as not only a home but the place where one belongs, telling the story of Javier Muñoz, once a successful executive who after a year of unemployment makes the fateful decision with his family to leave the apartment that they can’t afford.One day, he discovers that he still has a set of keys to his old home, starts spying on the young couple that now lives there, then, little by little, begins infiltrating their lives, determined to recover the life he has lost, come what may.Bruna Cursi, a sought-after actress after her Spanish Academy Goya winning performance in “Summer 1993,” and Ruth Díaz (“Tarde para la ira”) complete the key cast of  film about two couples who, Netflix said, are apparent strangers but for one thing in common: an apartment.An admired character actor for years, Gutiérrez broke through to far broader acclaim playing a police officer with a compromised past in Alberto Rodriguez’s “Marshland,” starred in Movistar +’s breakout comedy hit “Spanish Shame” and in Spain’s Oscar submission “Champions,” which has earned $22.2 million at Spanish cinema theaters this year.Casas has gone the other way.

Apps may throw the error “invalid procedure call error” in that case.After installing this update, applications that were made using Visual Basic 6 (VB6), macros using Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), and scripts or apps using Visual Basic Scripting Edition (VBScript) may stop responding and you may receive an “invalid procedure call error.”Cisco XenApps appear to be affected by the issue according to a post on Born’s site.All cumulative updates that Microsoft released appear to be affected by the issue. The known issue has been added to release pages for all supported versions of Microsoft Windows:Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2: KB4512486 and KB4512506Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2: KB4512488 and KB4512489Windows 10 version 1507: KB4512497Windows 10 version 1607 and Windows Server 2016: KB4512517Windows 10 version 1703: KB4512507Windows 10 version 1709: KB4512516Windows 10 version 1803: KB4512501Windows 10 version 1809 and Windows Server 2019: KB4511553Windows 10 version 1903 and Windows Server 1903: KB4512508Microsoft notes that it is investigating the issue currently and that it plans to distribute an update as soon as the issue is resolved.Microsoft revealed plans last month to disable VBScript by default on machines running Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2008 R2 or 2012 R2.

Those who have installed the patches already can uninstall the Windows Updates to resolve it.Closing WordsAn issue that affects all different versions of Visual Basic on all supported versions of Windows, that is a major one. Microsoft really needs to rethink testing and evaluating of updates to avoid major breakage like this from happening especially if it concerns in-house products like Visual Basic.Now you: what is your take on this issue?SummaryArticle NameVisual Basic issues in Windows August 2019 Updates DescriptionThe August 2019 cumulative patches for all supported versions of Microsoft Windows cause major breakage with Visual Basic applications.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more
