Powered by Firework Day 2 of the second Test between India and New Zealand has come to closure, and at stumps, India are on the lead with 97 runs. Following the bundle of the Kiwis batting squad by 153 runs, India have taken the lead, but are struggling with six wickets down at a score of 97 in Christchurch.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Twitter (@BLACKCAPS)New Zealand opener Tom Lathan landed a sweet score of 52, before losing his wicket to Mohammed Shami, the star of India’s bowling squad today. The 29 year old pacer started his four wicket haul today with Latham’s clean bowled dismissal in the 44th Over.Henry Nicholls and Neil Wagner also faced quick dismissals from Shami, as both of them were sent to the pavilion on scores of 14 and 21 respecrtively.Advertisement Shami also picked up Kyle Jamieson, the Kiwi youngster who missed his maiden Test half century just just one run. His stunning 49 came off including seven boundaries.New Zealand’s first innings also saw the superstar Jasprit Bumrah regaining his form. The 26 year old secured three wickets, including the hosts skipper Kane Williamson, who was unimpressive today at Hagley Oval, with only scoring 3. Jadeja picked two, and the injured Ishant Sharma’a substitute Umesh Yadav secured the wicket of Kiwi opener TOm Blundell on 30.Advertisement However, the Black Caps bowling squad shined again, led by Trent Boult, who picked up the wickets of Mayank Agarwal, Cheteshwar Pujara and Umesh Yadav.Starting the second innings, both of the Men in Blue openers were lacklustre on the pitch. The in form Agarwal had to leave on the second over after just scoring 3 runs, followed by Prithvi Shaw, who marvellously stroke a fifty in the first innings, lost his wicket on 14 against Tim Southee.Virat Kohli’s drought of runs in the series continues, as the captain failed to open up a big score again, after getting lbwed by Colin de Gramdhomme on just 14 runs. Rahane was bowled on 9 runs by Neil Wagner.The young Hanuma Vihari is now on strike alongside Rishabh Pant at the end of day’s play.Also read-Read VVS Laxman’s advice to Prithvi Shaw: You’re better off playing like this in New Zealand!

Generator Breakdown Closes C. B. Dunbar Maternity Hospital

first_imgThe Medical Director of the C.B. Dunbar Maternity Hospital in Gbarnga, Bong County, Dr. Obed Dolo, says the hospital is now closed to the public due to the breakdown of both of the hospital’s diesel generators.Dr. Dolo told reporters on Saturday June 4 in Gbarnga that the two 50 KVA generators broke down on Friday June 1 because they could no longer generate the power required by the hospital. He said the hospital will need two 125KVA generators to meet its electricity needs.As a result of the breakdown, the hospital is no longer accepting new pregnant patients for now, he explained, adding that all cases are now being referred to Phebe Hospital, thereby increasing that hospital’s workload.“The C. B. Dunbar Maternity Hospital is the first obstetric center in rural Liberia serving a community of over sixty thousand people who benefit from its services,” Dr. Dolo said.Dr. Dolo is appealing to the government, people of goodwill, as well as philanthropic organizations in the health sector, to assist the hospital with higher capacity generators for it to resume effective medical services to citizens in the area.He maintained that if nothing is done to quickly return the hospital to full operation, the shut- down may lead to maternal deaths in the county in the coming days. Dr. Dolo said nurses are using flashlights to attend to a few post delivery patients at the hospital, which he said is unsafe.The 50 bedroom C. B. Dunbar Maternity Hospital was reconstructed in 2010 by the government of Liberia and co-funded by the McCall MacBain Foundation through a grant from the French medical charity Medicins du Monde which supervised the work until 2013. Meanwhile, in an interview with a local radio station in Gbarnga yesterday, June 6, the Director of Communications at the Ministry of Health, Sorbor George, assured the public that electricity will soon be restored at the hospital.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgCanje River shootingA third suspect in the Potoko Creek robbery has been remanded on Thursday, bringing to five the number of alleged robbers accounted for of the six men who allegedly robber a labourer in the Canje River.Accused: Rondell CrawfordTwo were shot dead by Police at the scene of the robbery; two were remanded on Tuesday; and Rondell Crawford was on Thursday remanded by Senior New Amsterdam Magistrate Alex Moore.The 21-year-old Crawford, of Betsy Ground in East Canje, was not required to plead to an indictable charge detailing that he and others,  on Friday March 2, 2018, at Potoko Creek Canje River, robbed Bharrat Mahadeo of 24 sheep valued at $1.2 million; four lengths of rope valued at $24,000; one solar panel worth $75,000; 15 ducks valued at $30,000; one Nokia cellular phone worth $5000; horse bit valued at $10,000; two torchlights valued at $4,000; cutlass worth $2000, and radio worth $2500, property of Krishna Persaud.Police Prosecutor Inspector Bernard Brown, in objecting to Crawford being placed on bail, stated that more charges are likely to be filed against the accused. Brown told the court that based on the nature of the crime and its attendant facts, the defendants should not be given pre-trial liberty. He said the men have a criminal past.The Magistrate granted the Prosecution’s plea and ordered that the defendants return to court on March 26 for a police progress report.The police contend that on the day in question, six men — two of whom were armed with guns — went to a ranch house at Potoko Creek, Canje River and, held three male labourers at gunpoint before stealing the items.last_img read more

Lack of goals a concern for Van Gaal as Man United crash out of League Cup

first_img Manchester United’s Andreas Pereira reacts to a missed chance against Middlesbrough Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal was left to lament a succession of squandered opportunism, and admitted his side’s lack of goals is concerning, after they were dumped out of the League Cup by Middlesbrough on penalties.The Red Devils were held to their second straight goalless draw at Old Trafford and were beaten 3-1 in the shoot-out, with Wayne Rooney, Michael Carrick and Ashley Young all missing from the spot.It makes United the latest high-profile exit from the competition, following holders Chelsea and Arsenal’s fourth-round defeats on Wednesday.Van Gaal’s men were wasteful against the Championship outfit, with Marouane Fellaini, on two occasions, and substitute Anthony Martial missing guilt-edged chances in front of goal in extra-time.And the Dutch boss admitted his side’s profligacy cost them before the “casino” of the shoot-out.“When you are not finishing the chances – and they were very easy chances in front of the goal or in front of the goalkeeper – then it is very difficult to win a game because the goals are counting, not the chances,” the boss said.“You can say it is unlucky but that I have said already after the match against [Manchester] City also because that was also 0-0. You have to force the luck also, we didn’t do that because we didn’t score. That’s why I’m disappointed.“My players have given everything and that’s why I am also proud of them because until the end they have done it. Penalties is a casino – you never know.”England captain Rooney and Young both saw their penalties saved by Boro goalkeeper Tomas Mejias, while Carrick blazed over in between with only David Nugent not converting for the visitors.However, Van Gaal absolved his trio of any blame, preferring to instead reflect on Mejias’ successful rolls of the dice.“In the goal was a goalkeeper; and he was very quick and he gambled also,” Van Gaal added.“He’s 195 centimetres. That is not easy to do when the goalkeeper is gambling for the right corner.“You need players who look at the goalkeeper and put it in the other [corner]…very early he goes away. It is already 120 minutes you have played so you are not so sharp any more. These things happen.”While United could have put the tie to bed in extra-time, they were also fortunate to not be ousted in 90 minutes, with Daley Blind almost scoring two own-goals.At the other end, James Wilson offered little before being withdrawn at half-time due to injury, while Rooney, who played in a deeper midfield role, continued his struggles in front of goal.When asked if the lack of goals was a concern, Van Gaal replied: “Yes, of course. Football – what only matters is a goal. “We have played two matches – 0-0. In my opinion we could have scored against Manchester City now, again, that’s the score.“It is a concern but I do know also that it can easily turn around in the next game.” 1last_img read more

Anger as road left unfinished after water works

first_imgThe unfinished state of a road in Annagry following water upgrade works has been criticised as ‘unacceptable’.Parts of An Mhín Iochtaraigh road have been left as a gravel track without tarmac, Cllr Michael Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuig said, after water upgrade works were carried out in the area.The Glenties area councillor said he was furious with the council for not fulfilling an agreement that the road would be resurfaced after works were completed. He said: “Irish Water agreed that the whole road would be finished completely. You can see in the photograph on the left hand side where the works started but the council instead has decided not to finish the whole road as was agreed to an acceptable standard.“A lot of hard work went into securing taxpayers’ money to carry out the new water line and residents were very patient during these works. This small section of the road is not going to be finished to the same standard as the rest of the road,” Cllr Mac Giolla Easbuig said.The councillor said he will call on the local authority to get the section finished, adding: “This is no reflection on the workers that have done a good job on site.”  Anger as road left unfinished after water works was last modified: December 14th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Court says yes to floor-crossing

first_img4 October 2002The Constitutional Court has given the go-ahead for politicians to cross the floor and join another political party without losing their seats, in a ruling which is likely to make a significant impact on the country’s political landscape.In a landmark ruling on Friday the Constitutional Court upheld legislation passed by Parliament on floor-crossing in June this year. Constitutional Court Judge President Arthur Chaskalson said a 15-day window period for defections at local government level would be allowed, starting on October 8.Although the ruling, made unanimously by the 11 judges of the country’s highest court, applies to local level government only, it paves the way for the piloting of legislation in Parliament to allow for defections at national and provincial level.In handing down the judgement Chaskalson said the Court came to the conclusion that “floor-crossing legislation for national, provincial and local government level is not as such inconsistent with the Constitution”.The African National Congress (ANC) and the New National Party (NNP) are strongly behind the legislation but some minority parties are unhappy with it. The United Democratic Movement (UDM) put the brakes on planned floor crossings a few months ago when it gained a court order delaying the passing of the legislation by taking it first to the Constitutional Court.When the order was granted, UDM leader Bantu Holomisa said: “We should be proud that we still have our judicial system which is showing its independence – the state said we had no case.”Strengthens democracyThe ANC has fought for the legislation in the belief that “it strengthens democracy because it gives elected public representatives the right to make choices within the confines of the Constitution’.The NNP has also backed the legislation. There are nine councillors in the Western Cape, including several in the Cape Town unicity, who intend crossing from the DA to the NNP. The new ruling could swing the power balance in favour of the ANC in the unicity, which is ruled by an ANC/NNP alliance, and in the KwaZulu-Natal reporterlast_img read more

South Africa to push for SKA decision

first_img17 May 2012 South Africa will be pushing for a decision on the site of the €1.5-billion Square Kilometre Array (SKA) radio telescope at the next meeting of the international SKA organisation members on 25 May, says Science and Technology Minister Naledi Pandor. “The bidding countries submitted all the required technical information and we are impatiently awaiting the outcome of what we hope will be a final site consideration meeting on 25 May,” Pandor said during her department’s budget vote in Parliament in Cape Town on Tuesday. South Africa, allied with eight other African countries, is competing against Australia (allied with New Zealand) to host the SKA, an instrument 50-100 times more sensitive and 10 000 times faster than any radio imaging telescope yet built. A decision on the site was delayed in April to allow a scientific working group to explore ways of maximising investments already made by rival bidders South Africa and Australia-New Zealand – raising the possibility that the hosting of the world’s biggest radio telescope could be shared. Pandor was disappointment at the delay, saying at the time that she hoped the SKA organisation “will make a decision in the first half of 2012 and that the decision will reflect the best scientific outcome. “We believe we have an excellent site at which exciting science will be done,” Pandor said. “We in Africa are ready to host the SKA.” On Tuesday, Pandor told Parliament that her department had allocated R500-million to South Africa’s SKA initiative in the 2012/13 financial year.South Africa targets new satellites She said her department would also be working with the South African National Space Agency (Sansa) to develop an implementation blueprint for its next satellite. South Africa is planning to build its third satellite, to form part of a new African satellite constellation, as part of a government drive to grow the country’s share of the global market for small- to medium-sized space systems. “Our intention is to expand our investment in ‘micro’ satellites, building on the existing SumbandilaSat platform,” Pandor told delegates at the 62nd annual congress of the International Astronautical Federation in Cape Town in October. South Africa’s second satellite, the two-year-old SumbandilaSat, has been out of commission since a blast of solar radiation damaged its on-board computer in July 2011. Sansa chief executive Sandile Malinga announced in September that South Africa hoped to start building a new, fully operational satellite – not just a prototype or “pathfinder” satellite such as SumbandilaSat – as early as 2012, for possible launch by 2014/15. The new satellite would cost in the region of R400-million – compared to the R26-million spent on SumbandilaSat – and would also be used for earth observation, in line with the country’s space strategy, which seeks to apply satellite data to help to improve livelihoods, reduce poverty and manage natural disasters in the country and the region.
