Mitchell Santner wants repeat of tight bowling against AustraliaMitchell Santner wants repeat of tight bowling against Australia

first_imgNew Zealand need to bowl as well as they did at the start of Australia’s innings in the first one-day international in Auckland if they are to wrap up the series on Thursday, according to all-rounder Mitchell Santner.The hosts reduced Australia to 67 for six inside 19 overs as they chased New Zealand’s 286-9 at Eden Park before all-rounder Marcus Stoinis almost single-handedly won the game with a blazing 146 not out.Stoinis got Australia to a position where they needed just seven runs from 19 balls, having shared a 54-run partnership with last man Josh Hazlewood in four overs with the tall fast bowler not facing a single delivery before he was run out.”All the bowlers can take some positives out of the game,” Santner told reporters at McLean Park on Wednesday. “We bowled really well at the start and to take those early wickets was crucial… it put us ahead of the game. (Australia captain Matthew Wade to return from New Zealand tour)”We have to do more of the same. Be very patient on a good length and build pressure that way rather than hope for miracle balls at the start.”Santner acknowledged the bowlers would need to change their lengths from those they bowled at Eden Park, where they tried to be shorter to force the batsmen to play square of the wicket in the first of the three-match series.McLean Park, however, has morphed over the years from an elongated oval into a more rectangular shape with short square boundaries. (New Zealand opener Martin Guptill out of second ODI vs Australia)advertisement”There are different conditions here, different surface with different boundaries,” he added. “It is quite a bit shorter square here than straight.”Your length changes a bit and you err on the fuller side. You want to get hit straight rather than square so I guess adapting is the key.”The visitors, who are already missing regular captain Steve Smith and vice-captain David Warner, suffered a blow on Wednesday with wicketkeeper and stand-in captain Matthew Wade sent home to recover from a back injury. (Matthew Wade to captain Australia against New Zealand)Despite having to countenance something of the unknown in the series with so many new faces in the Australian team, Santner added his side were only concerned with winning the Chappell-Hadlee trophy back after losing it in a 3-0 series loss across the Tasman before Christmas.”They have got really strong depth in their squad. They’re number one in the world for a reason,” he said. (Australia’s David Warner, Usman Khawaja rested for ODI series in New Zealand)”We have the opportunity for 2-0. We will be preparing well and when the first ball is bowled we’ll be going pretty hard. It’s an opportunity to take the Chappell-Hadlee back and I think the boys will be fizzing.”last_img read more

Conservative party outfundraises the Liberals despite leadership contestConservative party outfundraises the Liberals despite leadership contest

first_imgOTTAWA – The federal Conservatives showed off their fundraising prowess during the first three months of the year, raking in almost twice as much as the governing Liberals despite being in the midst of a leadership contest that could be siphoning off potential donations to the party.When the leadership contestants’ money haul is added in, the Conservatives raised more than three times the Liberal take.According to financial returns filed with Elections Canada for the first quarter of 2017, the Conservative party pulled in $5.3 million from almost 42,500 donors, compared to just $2.8 million from 31,812 donors who gave to the Liberals.Tory leadership contenders took in another $4.6 million, with front-runner Maxime Bernier raking in the most: $1.031 million, just barely ahead of celebrity candidate Kevin O’Leary, who pulled out of the race last week and threw his support to Bernier.O’Leary raised $1.029 million. Kellie Leitch was a distant third with $536,418, followed by Erin O’Toole with $424,346, Andrew Scheer with $403,014 , Michael Chong with $283,978, Pierre Lemieux with $237,693, Lisa Raitt with $208,368 and Brad Trost with $120,893.The other five contenders each pulled in less than $100,000.The NDP continued to lag well behind the Conservatives and Liberals, raising just less than $909,000 from 13,404 donors.New Democrat leadership contenders raised an additional $252,664. Of the four declared candidates so far, Charlie Angus led the pack with $110,765, followed by Niki Ashton with $65,521, Guy Caron with $57,235 and Peter Julian with $19,143.Since winning power in 2015, the Liberals have been giving Conservatives, long the undisputed fundraising champions, a run for their money. They’ve virtually matched or slightly exceeded the Tory donations in most quarterly fundraising reports.The first quarter results for 2017 appears to signal renewed interest in the Conservative party as its leadership race heads for the finish line later this month.In the past, leadership contests have been known to siphon off money that would otherwise have gone to party coffers. But that certainly doesn’t appear to be happening this time.last_img read more

Security Council calls for end to hostilities in BurundiSecurity Council calls for end to hostilities in Burundi

In a presidential statement read out by Ambassador Anwarul K. Chowdhury, the Permanent Representative of Bangladesh, the Council reiterated its concern at the continuation of the conflict in Burundi and its toll on the civilian population, and stressed its support for the Arusha process and the efforts of the Facilitator, Nelson Mandela. It encouraged Secretary-General Kofi Annan, through his representatives, to continue to engage the armed groups and contribute to coordinated efforts to bring about a political settlement of the conflict. The statement also emphasized the need for the parties to the Arusha Peace and Reconciliation Agreement of August 2000 to implement all provisions of that accord, including those stipulating the establishment of new institutions. On the humanitarian front, the Council expressed grave concern at the continuing human rights abuses and violations of humanitarian law in Burundi, and urged respect for such rights. “In particular, it urges the belligerents to commit themselves immediately to the protection of civilians, in particular their life, physical integrity and the means necessary for their survival,” the Council said, reiterating also its call for safe and unhindered access for the delivery of humanitarian aid to all people in need. To donors, the Council said an increase of humanitarian and development assistance to the people of Burundi was needed, in keeping with the pledges by the international community at the Paris Donor Conference on 11-12 December 2000. read more

Britain’s FTSE-100 lost 0.8 per cent to 6,431.85 and France’s CAC-40 declined 0.7 per cent to 4,111.50.

Davidson Basketballs Sixth Man The Math DepartmentDavidson Basketballs Sixth Man The Math Department

Earlier this week, we read with interest in The New York Times that Davidson College’s math department is helping its men’s basketball team win games. Since this combines three of our favorite subjects — sports, math and using math to win at sports — I asked Tim Chartier, a professor in Davidson’s mathematics and computer science department, to elaborate on the unusual partnership between his department and the Wildcats.He was understandably reluctant to spill too many details — particularly regarding how the math department analyzed the data about Iowa, Davidson’s round-of-64 opponent in the NCAA tournament Friday, or Gonzaga and North Dakota State, one of which Davidson will face if it reaches the round of 32 and both of which he’d already started scouting. But Chartier did shed a little more light on the math behind the surprise Atlantic 10 champs. And it sounds a lot like what we do at FiveThirtyEight, except with a goal of winning basketball games instead of writing articles about winning basketball games. Here are edited excerpts of his reply:So, what do we offer the coaches?Heat maps: Two members of Cats Stats, as we call our group, track the games for heat maps. They mark who takes a shot and estimate the location by clicking a computer program that I wrote. Then, as you see, regions of the court are marked as hot and cold regions. Two members of the group met with coaches in January and went through heat maps not just at the team level but player level and then various combinations of players. The coaches found this very helpful and discovered things that led them to analyze player combinations with similar tendencies that they then recognized.Lineup efficiencies: Here we show Dean Oliver’s Four Factors for offense and defense for every five-man lineup and the total amount of time that lineup has been used. Then, we also found various subsets of lineups, as well, like guard trios and forward pairs. For example, we might see that two big men are most efficient/inefficient when in the game together.Personal scouting: Here we produce a detailed breakdown of players’ tendencies and how well they performed in each aspect of the game. Here no new statistics were created. We presented data and numbers so that the coaching staff could easily implement the reports into their game plan. It could range from things like whether or not a player liked to shoot off the dribble and how effective they were in those situations to things like how effective a player might score driving left out of isolation situations. Said another way, we look for the tendencies in the numbers, especially outlier numbers. We think of these as creating data points or dots. Then, we dig into the video that accompany these stats on Synergy and figure out the story/tendency behind the number. That gives context and, in a sense, connects the dots. For example, if a player drives to the right 80 percent of the time and scores much better than going left, that is important. But, then the video can help see that his first step when driving is quicker going right than left, allowing him to beat his man more often. read more

Two Minds One HeartTwo Minds One Heart

first_imgScholar Elijah MilesFIGHT” or “FLIGHT” is a natural response to grief, trauma, fear, and danger.  “FLIGHT” is likely what caused Freddie Gray to run from Baltimore city police officers on April 12th, 2015.  “FIGHT” is likely what happened during any moment of resistance before Alton Sterling was shot and killed by a Baton Rouge, Louisiana police officer on July 5th, 2016. “FIGHT” is likely what led to the Baltimore protests after Gray’s death.  “FIGHT” is likely what has led to protests after Sterling’s death. “FLIGHT” is likely what causes many Baltimoreans, to share that they are leaving the city after the recent death of rapper Lor’ Scoota (Tyriece Travon Watson). “FIGHT” is what brought the two of us together to discuss why we are not running, we will engage in a symbolic FIGHT.Professor Dr. Natasha C. Pratt-HarrisAlthough we are in the academy, neither of us (scholar Elijah Miles nor Professor Dr. Natasha C. Pratt-Harris) is far removed from many of the feelings or experiences of those who are impacted by police brutality and urban violence.  Two days after Scoota’s death, Miles shared his feelings about the rapper he adored who was murdered after leaving a charity basketball game – “Mr. Upnext, Mr. Bird Flu, Lor Scoota”. “When I heard the news it broke my heart. It instantly brought tears to my eyes, it hurt.”  Scoota’s death happened days after we discussed the tragic death of one of our own – Christopher Collins. “Chris was destined to do great things as a recent college graduate. His death has broken my heart,” Dr. Pratt-Harris shared.  Both men were killed due to the gun violence that not only pervades the city of Baltimore but also is why #1 Congressman John Lewis encouraged a sit-in in the House of Representatives in June, in response to the Orlando, FL gun massacre, #2 described by President Obama as also impacting cities like Chicago and children at schools like Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut, and #3 has also led to the death of many unarmed black men, women, and children by police officers in the U.S.  For us the idea of running from a city, like Baltimore, does not mean we would escape the problem.Miles referred to a Baltimore Sun article when expressing how he has further been disheartened. Tate Kobang’s comment, ‘Honestly, I done all I can do for and in Baltimore. Word of advice … when the opportunity to leave presents itself take it. Goodbye’, or Gervonta, a star in the boxing ring, ‘Tired of trying to keep it real. I’m gone son!’, and Chino, a dirt bike legend, sharing ‘I definitely got plans on leaving,’ Miles shares, “Our reaction cannot be to hate, give up on, or leave our city.” It’s the very thing that has inspired our FIGHT.  FIGHT for ScholarshipWe are FIGHTING for continuous engaged scholarship regarding the history of the slave trade, Jim Crow and Black Codes, the War on Drugs and street violence.  We are FIGHTING for the acknowledgement that Black males face dual vulnerabilities – simultaneously vulnerable to police violence and street civilian violence.  Miles, mentored by Dr. Pratt-Harris, has spent the summer examining the relationship between violence and the Post-Traumatic Slave Syndrome coined by Dr. Joyce DeGruy or explanations for urban violence discussed in Frantz Fanon’s 1961 book “The Wretched of the Earth”.  It makes sense that many have responded to the violence, discussing FLIGHT. Black Baltimore has experienced and is reminded of hopelessness and tragedy on a daily basis locally and nationally.FIGHT for Fair Media CoverageWe discussed the missed opportunities to highlight the successes of Scoota and Collins. “The local news outlets were not swarming the charity basketball game that Scoota participated, neither the May 2016 commencement where Collins earned his bachelor’s degree,” Dr. Pratt-Harris shared. We are FIGHTING for better representation of Black men and women in the media, possibly curving the image of Black men as criminal.  While news reporters reported on the tremendous losses in the city in June, they also reported on the “plebes” (freshman at the Naval Academy) and their move in day, similar to the Annapolis, MD Naval Academy graduation that’s reported annually.  There has been little to no reporting on the summer programs on campuses like Morgan State University and on move-in day for its students or the joys of graduation.  Our symbolic FIGHT challenges local news outlets to help transform the city’s despair and characterization of Black people by acknowledging the hundreds of Black male and female college graduates that earn degrees in December and May from the city’s two historically Black colleges (HBCU)  – Coppin State University and Morgan State University.  Where: #1 Brown vs. the Board of Education of Topeka (1954) U.S. Supreme Court case is less than 65 years old and we live in the state that denied a law school education to Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall because he was Black, #2 HBCUs were established to offer educational opportunities for Blacks who were denied access to higher education, and #3 the six-year graduation rate has been challenging, a student earning a college degree IS a breaking news story.  FIGHT for Changes in Law, Policy, and PracticeIn addition to the emotions of losing many due to civilian violence, the people of Baltimore may further consider FLIGHT where the Freddie Gray trials appear to be coming to a proverbial end due to the Officer Caesar Goodson (the officer with the most substantial charges in the case) trial ending in an acquittal. This has been followed by threats to Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby and an audacious filing of disbarment by a George Washington University law professor, claiming Mosby lacked probable cause to charge the six officers in the Gray case. Many of the powers-that-be have responded publicly with concerns about unrest and less concerns about the treatment of civilians in police custody.  In fact, the one year anniversary of the Freddie Gray uprising was characterized by a police involved shooting of a bb-gun armed 13 year old Black male and the subsequent detainment of his mother and the recent peaceful Lor’ Scoota memorial gathering was characterized by police officer presence in riot gear.The U.S. Supreme Court recently ruled in favor of officer discretion in the Utah vs. Strieff (2016) case. The 4th amendment protections against evidence obtained during illegal searches and seizure are in fact legally admissible in court. The FIGHT in us tells us to use research to examine the law and court decisions that impact our liberties.  We acknowledge that Mosby’s probable cause was rooted in the death of a Black male after he was in police custody and there are countless Black males who are routinely and disproportionately stopped, like Gray and now Sterling. Based on Strieff, if any evidence is obtained illegally, stops like the Gray or Sterling cases, don’t warrant probable cause.  Supreme Court Justice Sonya Sotomayor, acknowledged this in her dissenting argument in Strieff. “We must not pretend that the countless people who are routinely targeted by police are ‘isolated.’ They are the canaries in the coal mine whose deaths, civil and literal, warn us that no one can breathe in this atmosphere.”FIGHT for Baltimore, FIGHT for JusticeAlbert Einstein  said “the world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.”  We ask that those who can make a difference continue to be part of the solution. We can’t in 2016 give up on our city for comfort and convenience. While some may be able to leave, everyone can’t leave! Leaving does not stop the problem. As we conclude Miles asks the questions, imagine if our freedom fighters left us? Where would we be? “In the spirit of Malcolm X, in the spirit of Dr. King, in the spirit of Harriet Tubman and all our ancestors, I challenge us to FIGHT for our communities, FIGHT for our families, FIGHT for our children, FIGHT for a different Baltimore,” he passionately encourages.Elijah Miles was born and raised in Baltimore and is a Morgan State University Benjamin Quarles Fellow majoring in Political Science.Dr. Natasha C. Pratt-Harris was raised in Baltimore and is an associate professor and coordinator of the Criminal Justice program in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology with Morgan State University in Baltimore, MD.last_img read more

and could have left no one in doubt (Reuters Photo) Top News Dr Raghuram Rajan will lay down the office of Governor Reserve Bank of India on September 4 2016 It is a pity that the government has eased him out at the end of three years when he would have willingly served until September 2018 and if nudged until the government’s term ended in May 2019 Anyway let us put those events behind us Maybe the government will surprise everybody by making an inspired choice I certainly look forward to the announcement which is already overdue What awaits the new Governor To his successor and to the Prime Minister and the government Dr Rajan has left valuable messages Plain English Central Bank governors do not speak in plain English (or French or German or Chinese) They speak in an elliptical language leaving the listeners to make their own interpretations Mr Alan Greenspan a former chairman of the US Fed once famously told the US Congress “Gentlemen since I’ve become a central banker I’ve learned to mumble with great incoherence If I seem unduly clear to you you must have misunderstood what I said” Dr Rajan’s last policy statement made on August 9 2016 was in plain English and could have left no one in doubt The RBI is not yet prepared to cut the policy rate Let me cull out a few important statements from the policy: “Since the statement of June 2016 several developments have clouded the outlook for the global economy Across advanced economies growth in Q2 of 2016 has been slower than anticipated and outlook is still mixed Among emerging market economies activity remains varied World trade remains sluggish in the first half of 2016 Most financial markets did not anticipate the Brexit vote and equities plunged worldwide currency volatility increased and investors herded into safe havens Configuration of risks (In India) the prolonged sluggishness in the capital goods sector is indicative of weak investment demand… Business confidence is also looking up in recent months though the Reserve Bank’s survey for March 2016 suggests that capacity utilisation seasonally adjusted is still weak Retail inflation measured by the headline consumer price index (CPI) rose to a 22-month high in June with a sharp pick-up in momentum overwhelming favourable base effects In the external sector merchandise export growth moved into positive territory in June after 18 months… On the other hand imports continued to decline albeit at a slower pace than in recent months On balance inflation projections as given in the June bi-monthly statement ie of a central trajectory towards 5 per cent by March 2017 with risks tilted to the upside are retained [The chart gives a range of 48 to 64 per cent] In view of this configuration of risks it is appropriate for the Reserve Bank to keep the policy repo rate unchanged at this juncture while awaiting space for policy action” There are of course other statements that highlight the positive indicators such as positive outlook for value-added in agriculture pick-up in industrial orders expansion in the services sector moderate rise in rural wages likely easing in food inflation positive net portfolio inflows and ample liquidity Nevertheless the message to the government is clear: The RBI is awaiting action of the government that will create space for policy action by the RBI Where are the triggers We come back again and again to the absence of triggers to boost the economy In the absence of triggers there is no demand for credit from the manufacturing sector (as admitted by many public sector bank chiefs); there is little greenfield industrial investment; there is no evidence of job creation; and there is no ‘feel’ among the people that the economy is growing at 76 per cent Who has the hand on the wheel For example the Minister of Coal announced that availability of coal is abundant True but why are coal stocks piling up leading to cutback in coal production The Minister of Power claimed that there is no shortage of production of electricity True but at what price is electricity available why are there ‘load shedding’ by distributors and ‘back down’ by power plants and when per capita consumption is low why is there no demand for electricity There are three indicators that must be tracked every month by the government Firstly how many stalled projects have moved forward towards COD (commercial operation date); secondly what is the capacity utilisation at present in each industry; and thirdly how many new factories commenced production and how many new jobs were created The Governor was right when he said that he is awaiting space for policy action What he left unsaid is also pretty clear: it is only when action is taken by the government that the RBI will be persuaded to cut the policy rate Given this situation I think the government is obliged to tell the nation what it intends to do on sluggish demand stalled projects slow credit growth high food inflation depressed manufacturing sector and low job creation so that the RBI under the next Governor and the new Monetary Policy Committee will be persuaded to cut the policy rate Otherwise the blame game will continue without yielding any result The messenger has left a clear message and he has packed his bags Thankfully the potshots at the Governor have by and large stopped In 20 days from today the messenger would have left and only the message will remain Website: pchidambaramin @Pchidambaram_IN For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Express News Service | New Delhi

for culling Now Prime Minister Narendra Modi has approved the constitution of a review committee which will preside over the slaughter of pointless acts Most of the flab in our legal tomes is

fail to inform the district collector in writing of the discovery of “treasure” of value exceeding Rs 10 Another law caps tolls charged on cargoes on the Ganga which was an important waterway a century ago Dozens of laws were passed to deal with the fallout of Partition and are now irrelevant There are laws regulating dead industries like the Bengal Indigo Contracts Act The Concurrent List duplicates legislation at the Central and state levels which may not always be useful or even necessary Clearly there’s a lot of room for slash and burn The present government is carrying on a project inherited from the first NDA government which had identified over 1300 laws for removal It is following a principle set by the Supreme Court in the matter of Article 377 which it unfortunately restored to the statute book: laws are ideally made and unmade by government not the judiciary However sporadic commissions and initiatives would serve the purpose erratically Lawmaking is the routine business of government and review for possible repeal should also happen routinely If a review system were in place our statute books would be slimmer And the courts would have been spared the burden
