Gagan Narang Hopes Dronacharya Award is Instituted at Every Level for Coaches

Follow on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Telegram, TikTok and on YouTube, and stay in the know with what’s happening in the world around you – in real time. New Delhi: Olympic bronze medallist shooter Gagan Narang on Wednesday hoped the Dronacharya Award is instituted for coaches at every level in the future with equal incentives for even those tasked with spotting talents.One of India’s finest rifle shooters ever, the 36-year-old has set up many training centres across the country as part of the Gagan Narang Sports Promotion Foundation (GNSPF) to teach and promote shooting to young aspirants. His efforts will be recognised on Thursday when President Ram Nath Kovind presents him the Rashtriya Khel Protsahan Puraskar on the National Sports Day.”I believe there should be a Dronacharya in every system, at every level, — the best grassroots level coach, best intermediate level coach, best excellence coach, best foreign coach,” Narang said during an interaction.”That way people will not want to make that transition from grassroots to the top coach. Incentives should be given at all levels, there should be a system in place where the grassroot level coach is aspiring to become the best grassroot level coach in the country.”Because without grassroots level coaches elite can’t do anything. There has to be a system in place and the government is working towards it.”Currently, they have 16 training centres across the country (in Maharashtra, Gujarat, Telangana, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu) where they train over a 1,000-1200 shooters annually.GNSPF has come a long way since its inception in 2011, with Narang himself funding it by using the money he won in the form of cash awards after his stellar display at the 2010 Commonwealth Games.”We are working from this year onwards on a coach development programme wherein coaches of the respective branches are called to Pune for development of coaches and handling kids.”They are taught a little bit of administration, they are taught a little bit of soft skills, little bit of practical knowledge is give to them.”We are planning to hold the coach development programme twice or thrice from this year onwards which will also upgrade the knowledge of the coaches.”And every year we would want a coach from different parts of the world so that our coaches get the best of all world whether it is from Russia, Europe and so on.”Narang, whose father sold their house in order to help him become a shooter, is familiar with the struggle young athletes face in their quest to reach the top.While he has no doubt that things have improved drastically from the time he was dreaming to make it big, Narang said more needs to be done, urging corporate houses and state governments to contribute.”In not-for-profit scenario we are always strapped for funds. So if we are able to give scholarship to someone and support him, it’s always better than putting the money back into the system.””We are able to support a limited number of people with whatever resources we have. Of course we are always strapped for funds because we have a lot of talent in the country which needs to be supported.”If I show you my facebook or instagram page I have 200 requests saying please give me one chance. coachesDronacharya awardgagan narangshooting First Published: August 28, 2019, 7:20 PM ISTlast_img read more

Twitter rolls out reverse-chronological feed for iOS users

first_imgSan Francisco, Dec 19 (IANS) Listening to its users, Twitter has finally revived the reverse-chronological feed for iOS devices that will come to Android soon.The original way to tweet is now available as an option along with the current ranked timeline as a toggle which Twitter has called “Sparkle” on top right side of the app for iOS users to switch between the two.”New on iOS! Starting today, you can tap ‘Sparkle’ to switch between the latest and top tweets in your timeline. Coming soon to Android,” said Twitter in a tweet late on Tuesday.The reverse-chronological feed is useful in real time, particularly during live events such as sports games or the Oscars, reported The Verge.Tap on “Sparkle” and you’ll get the option to switch to seeing the reverse-chronologically sorted feed.Twitter began ranking the timeline almost four years ago.In recent tests, the company found that users who had access to the “Sparkle” toggle participated in more conversations than average.In September, Twitter had announced that it will revert the timeline into a pure reverse-chronological feed.The micro-blogging platform in 2016 announced that it will only show the “most important tweets” and stop the most recent tweets first which irked many users.Now, when you open Twitter after being away for a while, the tweets you’re most likely to care about will appear at the top of your timeline — still recent and in reverse chronological order.The rest of the tweets will be displayed right underneath, also in reverse chronological order, as always.–IANSna/mag/advertisementlast_img read more

‘A liquid catapult’: big-wave surfer returns to scene of nightmare wipeout

first_imgLooking out from the jagged headland at Nazaré in Portugal, the Atlantic Ocean below looks tranquil. Baby waves – or so they seem from above – peel left across the town’s northern beach and there’s barely a sign that this stretch of water is considered one of the most monstrous surf spots in the world.“It’s impossible to visualise it on a day like today when it’s beautiful and sunny but sometimes it gets big out there and sometimes it gets to the next level, beyond the realms …” says the surfer Andrew Cotton, tapering off as he considers how best to describe the 60ft wave that flattened him exactly a year ago. “It’s like moving mountains,” he adds.“It’s disorganised, it’s really tricky to surf, there are peaks everywhere, you get these crazy, crazy teepees with loads of energy, and when the waves break right in front of the lighthouse it’s like woah! Without doubt it’s the riskiest spot in the world to surf.”Cotton knows first-hand about the risks at Nazaré, where a deep offshore canyon funnels the ocean towards the headland and, during certain winter swells, creates waves up to seven storeys high.Last November, the 36-year-old Devon surfer was hit on the head by a mammoth wave before being spat 20ft into the air, the momentum eventually slamming him down onto the surface of the ocean with such force that it broke his back.It was dubbed a “liquid catapult into space” by the World Surf League big wave awards. Cotton remembers it all with eerie detail. features Twitter … we have a small favour to ask.

Pinterest Facebook Support The Guardian Last week, in the first significant swell of the season, Cotton surfed waves that were around 40ft high. He suffered another wipeout, this time snapping his board in two instead of his back. That experience fortified his belief that he’s ready to scale Nazaré’s moving mountains again.“Of course there was fear when I first came back here,” he says. “I was nervous, shaking a little bit with the adrenalin, but I said to myself it’s a long winter, just build your way back slowly.”Over the coming months he hopes to set new benchmarks while “drawing exciting, critical lines”. And having towed McNamara into a then world record wave at Nazaré in 2011 – the moment when Nazaré first caught global attention – Cotton is determined to add his own record to his ignominious wipeout award.On reflection, he muses: “Sometimes you have to endure the worst situation to get to experience the best.”• To find out more about Andrew Cotton, visit Cotton checks and prepares his kit at Red Bull’s facility in an old shipping yard in Nazaré. Photograph: Jonny Weeks/The Guardian Share on Pinterest Since you’re here… “Some days you go on internet binges looking at waves and all your mates having fun and you’re like, will I ever do that again?” he says. “I don’t think you know how much a wipeout like that changes you until you come back.“It would have been really easy to say ‘forget it’. I’ve got a family, I’m a qualified plumber, I’ve got other stuff going on in my life. Plumbing can get pretty exciting if you’ve got a leak going on!“But I really, truly love big wave surfing. Some other people just want a picture [of themselves on a big wave] but I want this.” Giant wave slams into British surfer Andrew Cotton causing huge wipeout – video 0:38 Cotton puts on his protective under-armour and wetsuit as he prepares for a paddle-surf in relatively tranquil conditions at Nazaré. Photograph: Jonny Weeks/The Guardian Share via Email It has taken 12 months of intensive rehabilitation for Cotton to fully recover. As he wanders around the shipping hanger in Nazaré where Red Bull athletes keep their kit – where photos of past triumphs and remnants of broken boards decorate the walls – he’s feeling grateful to be back on his feet, back in town, back in the water.He checks his inflatable life vest and CO2 canisters, prepares the first aid kit which includes military-grade tourniquet dressings, and speaks of a mental comeback as much as a physical one. “When I was checking the swell that morning I was seeing giant, perfect lefts,” he says. “I mind-surfed them and I knew exactly what I wanted from the day: I wanted to be in a 60ft barrel. Getting barrelled at three feet is amazing but getting barrelled at 60ft, that’s the dream.“It was probably my fourth wave of the day and I was like, ‘this is it, I’m going to send it’, but it went from being the best wave I’d ever seen to being possibly the worst. Suddenly I knew the lip wasn’t going to throw out as far as I expected. I could see it feathering above me so I hit the eject button and jumped off.

The moments that followed were amongst the strangest of his surfing career.“I’ve fallen off my board a lot in the last 30 years and this time was weird, like nothing else,” he says. “I was having this weightless feeling and I thought maybe I was in the centre of the wave. I thought to myself ‘maybe I could’ve ridden this out’. And then bang! I landed so hard. When that impact happened I was like ‘I’m done’.”Was it painful? “Umm, yeah,” he says with bewilderment, as if the feeling was almost beyond register. “It was like jumping off the top of a building on to concrete.”Cotton was swept under by the ensuing white water and took a second, huge wave on the head before being rescued by his tow-surf partner, Hugo Vau. The pair eventually made it back to the beach, where Vau lost control of the jetski and spilled Cotton onto the sand, adding injury to injury. Needless to say, Cotton won the WSL Wipeout of the Year award.Having suffered an L2 vertebrae compression fracture, he was initially unable to walk. “At first I was on pain killers and I was like ‘it’s not that bad’,” he recalls. “But after a few days they put a body brace on me to see if I could stand up. I couldn’t even put my feet off the bed. Garrett (McNamara) and Hugo were there and I could see on their faces I’d really fucked up.” Twitter last_img read more

Feel Good Friday – BePacks

first_imgRory Rogan had no ideawhen he was fiddling around making a backpack to use on a hike, that he would end up creating a movement with BePacks. While in college at the United States Merchant Marines Academy, Rory started making a prototype of his dream backpack. While working on the pack he had an ‘aha’ moment. Rogan was familiar with The African Education Program (AEP) and realized that incorporating their non-profit into his bag company is where this dream was heading. Before traveling to Africa in 2012 Rory’s family had suggested he meet Mario Savarit, one of the Chairpersons of the African Education program. Prior to leaving, Rory met Mario and fell in love with the work the organization was doing in Zambia and wanted to learn more about how he could help.Children in Sub-Saharan Africa have to pay for their own school (about $175 a year including food and uniform). Roughly 22 million teenagers cannot afford to continue their education so the AEP is there to help, as is Be Packs. $10 from every bag goes directly to sponsoring a child’s education in Zambia. Every 20 bags sold provides a child with one year of education, one meal and a uniform.What makes Be Packs so unique is that in every pack, you will find a hand written patch of hope from a child in Zambia. The bags are made entirely start to finish in the USA, specifically in New York City where the company began. All of the materials used for the bags from the zipper to the straps to the actual fabric is sourced from within the US. Each Hope Patch begins as a simple 4×4 piece of fabric sourced here in the US.After the blank patches are collected into groups they are shipped to their friends at the African Education Program in Zambia. There, full time volunteers distribute the blank patches to the children at the center where they handwrite every inspiring Hope Patch. After the kids write out their message of hope, the finished patches are then driven to Lusaka, the capital of Zambia, where they are sent back to our production facility in New York City. Finally, they are sewn into the packs where they take their place as the heart & soul of every bag.

Security Council urges all parties in Lebanon to put national interest ahead

In a statement to the press, the Council reaffirmed its concern over the current political stalemate, calling it a serious impediment to Lebanon’s ability to address the security, economic, social, and humanitarian challenges facing the country. As such, the Council called on all Lebanese leaders to adhere to Lebanon’s Constitution and to the Taif Agreement and National Pact, to put Lebanon’s stability and national interests ahead of partisan politics and urged all parties to facilitate the functioning of state institutions and delivery of public services. Expressing concern at the Parliament’s inability to elect a President following a lack of quorum, the Council went on to reaffirm its call on all Lebanese leaders to act responsibly and with leadership and flexibility to urgently convene a parliamentary session and proceed to the election of a President. The 15-nation body commended the Government of Lebanon for setting the dates for local elections and further called on the Lebanese authorities to hold them within the set calendar. The members of the Security Council reiterated their strong support for the territorial integrity, sovereignty and political independence of Lebanon. They underscored the crucial role played by the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) and security forces in extending and sustaining the authority of the State and supporting the country’s stability. Expressing continuing concern at the negative impact of the Syrian crisis on Lebanon’s stability and the immediate threat to its security, the Council noted with deep concern all border violations, including the presence of terrorist and violent extremist groups in Lebanese territory, the deepening involvement of some Lebanese parties in the fighting in Syria and the risks this poses for Lebanon’s stability and for the Lebanese people. The members of the Security Council reiterated the importance of Lebanon’s policy of disassociation and called on all Lebanese parties to cease any involvement in the Syrian crisis, consistent with their commitment in the ministerial declaration of the current Government and in the Baabda Declaration of 12 June 2012.Gravely concerned by the impact of hosting over one million Syrian refugees registered with the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Lebanon, the Council underscored that support to Lebanon’s efforts to manage the impact of the influx of refugees, including on essential services such as education and health, is crucial to preserving Lebanon’s stability and security. The Council’s statement comes after the 15-member body was briefed yesterday by the Special Coordinator for Lebanon, Sigrid Kaag, on the implementation of resolution 1701 (2006) – which imposed a ceasefire and the Israeli-Hizbollah war of 2006 – and by Dimitry Titov, the Assistant Secretary-General for the Rule of Law in the Department of Peacekeeping Operations.Briefing the press after those consultations, Ms. Kaag said the political stalemate in Lebanon is impacting the day-to-day functioning of the country and the effectiveness of the Government.“There is a steady but demonstrable erosion of the institutions of State. This is very important when you look at Lebanon as a country that is still a pluralistic society, diverse, democratic, is one of our ‘last jewels’ in the Middle East that is really dealing with so many other issues including extreme violence and constant conflict,” she explained, stressing: So we need the institutions of Lebanon to work. They are precious and they are important to the future of the country.” read more

Irelands banks are borrowing less and less from the ECB

first_imgIRELAND’S BANKS are continuing to wean themselves off emergency funding from the European Central Bank, according to data released this afternoon.Figures compiled by the Department of Finance show that loans from the ECB to Irish-based banks – including those which were not covered by the State’s bank guarantee, such as Ulster Bank – fell to €52.8 billion in April.While that amount is still significantly high, it marks the smallest balance of loans from the ECB since September 2008, when the blanket bank guarantee was introduced.By way of comparison, in November 2010 – the month that Ireland entered its bailout – the banks had borrowed a total of €136.4 billion, meaning loans from the ECB have fallen by over 60 per cent since then.Banks have repaid €34 billion in lending in the last year.The ‘covered’ banks which were subject to the blanket guarantee now owe around €39.45 billion, down 40 per cent in the last twelve months.Separate figures show that the amount deposited at Ireland’s banks has continued to stabilise, falling by €1.2 billion (0.8 per cent) to €153.4 billion at the end of last month.Deposits have risen by €2.2 billion, or 1.5 per cent, in the last twelve months.The Department of Finance said it had seen an “insignificant impact” on deposits at the guaranteed banks following the withdrawal of the blanket guarantee.Read: Relief for tracker mortgage holders as ECB cuts main interest rateslast_img read more

Samuel L Jackson clarifies comments about British actors

first_img Thursday 9 Mar 2017, 4:18 PM 36 Comments By Associated Press SAMUEL L JACKSON has said he wasn’t trying to slam black British actors when he criticised their casting in American films such as the horror hit Get Out and the Martin Luther King Jr drama Selma.Jackson told the Associated Press his comments on Monday on the radio station Hot 97 weren’t necessarily misunderstood, but his criticism was not of the performers – rather of the system that allows black actors from overseas take prominent roles in American films.“It was not a slam against them, but it was just a comment about how Hollywood works in an interesting sort of way sometimes,” Jackson said at the premiere of his new film Kong: Skull Island.Jackson noted on Monday that a lot of roles are going to British actors. He said he wondered what Get Out would have been like “with an American brother who really feels that”. Jordan Peele’s film is about an African American photographer, played by the British actor Daniel Kaluuya, whose white girlfriend brings him home to her parents’ house.Jackson also pointed to Ava DuVernay’s Selma, which starred David Oyelowo as King. Source: John Boyega/TwitterHis comments drew criticism from John Boyega, the British Star Wars actor, who on Twitter called the debate a “stupid” conflict “we don’t have time for”.Yesterday, Jackson was complimentary of the skills and hard work black British performers put in to take on American roles, but he said that was a one-way street.“We’re not afforded that same luxury, but that’s fine, we have plenty of opportunities to work,” he said.“I enjoy their work,” Jackson said of his British counterparts. “I enjoy working with them when I have the opportunity to do that.”Read: Man and woman arrested over attempted abduction of baby from London hospitalRead: Man who posed as Justin Bieber online charged with over 900 child sex offences 29,428 Views Short URL Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Samuel L Jackson clarifies comments about British actors He has criticised the system that allows black actors from overseas take prominent roles in American films.

S African gets life sentence in honeymoon slaying

first_img Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Top Stories 4 must play golf courses in Arizona The vital role family plays in society “The story of my innocent daughter Anni who lost her life here in Cape Town on her honeymoon still remains incomplete. The full picture will only emerge when Shrien comes down to Cape Town and faces the trial,” said Vinod Hindocha, Anni Dewani’s father. “Me and my wife have not slept a full night since Anni left us. And Shrien holds the key to that.”Judge Robert Henney, who found Mngeni guilty in November, did not hold back his contempt while sentencing the 25-year-old on Wednesday for the killing. Henney said that the shooter showed no remorse and his longtime illnesses could not weigh against receiving the harshest penalty available by law.Mngeni, who had surgery in June 2011 to remove a brain tumor, has suffered seizures and black outs and has troubles remembering things, his lawyer has said.“The interest of society, as well as the serious nature of the crimes that the accused has committed, doesn’t allow my conscience _ even though I have pity for the accused _ to impose any other sentence than life imprisonment on the accused for the callous, calculated and brutal manner in which he ended the life of Anni Dewani,” Henney said. Comments   Share   Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project The judge added: “It is difficult to imagine the absolute terror and horror she must have endured as she stared down the barrel of the gun, which was pointed at her the moment before she was killed.”Mngeni showed no emotion during the sentencing Wednesday, putting his head down on a bannister in the courtroom and glancing over at Anni Dewani’s family at one point. He gave a brief thumbs-up to his family as he left the court and his lawyer quickly left without speaking to journalists.In August, Mngeni’s alleged accomplice Mziwamadoda Qwabe pleaded guilty to charges over the killing, receiving a 25-year prison sentence. Zola Tongo, the taxi driver that police say husband Shrien Dewani asked to plot the killing, earlier received an 18-year prison sentence. Both Tongo and Qwabe have said Dewani wanted it to look like he wasn’t involved his wife’s slaying and they planned to have the attack look like a carjacking in Cape Town’s impoverished Gugulethu township.The men were paid 15,000 rand (about $2,100) for the killing, Qwabe and prosecutors have said.In a statement provided as part of his plea deal, Qwabe said that after he and Mngeni staged a fake carjacking, he drove the car as Mngeni kept a 7.62 mm pistol pointed at Anni Dewani in the backseat and then pulled the trigger, the fatal shot going through her neck. Panicked, Qwabe said he stopped the car and got out, helping Mngeni find the spent bullet casing. He threw the casing into a sewer as they ran away into the night.center_img Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Sponsored Stories Associated PressCAPE TOWN, South Africa (AP) – A South African judge sentenced the triggerman in the 2010 honeymoon slaying of a Swedish bride to life in prison Wednesday, calling the shooter “a merciless and evil person” who deserved the maximum punishment for his crime.The sentencing of Xolile Mngeni for the killing of 28-year-old Anni Dewani comes as prosecutors still await word whether the newlywed’s British husband, who they say orchestrated the November 2010 killing, will be extradited to South Africa to stand trial. The bride’s family, who attended the sentencing with a picture of her smiling pinned to their chests, said justice would only be done once husband Shrien Dewani stands before a South African court. Arizona families, Arizona farms: A legacy of tradition embracing animal care and comfort through modern technology Officials at first thought the crime was robbery. The rate of violent crime is high in South Africa but attacks on foreign tourists are rare.Shrien Dewani has denied he hired anyone to kill his wife and was allowed by authorities to leave South Africa for the United Kingdom, where he was later arrested. In March, a U.K. High Court ruled that it would be “unjust and oppressive” to extradite Dewani to South Africa, as his mental condition had worsened since his arrest there.In the time since, Dewani, 32, has been held at a secure mental health institution in Bristol. At a court hearing earlier in the week in London, officials said Dewani spent his time playing computer games in an old van at the facility, according to the Press Association. Dewani’s mental condition will be reviewed in April, with a full extradition hearing set for July.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

MPs urge removal of gunpowder stored in Aradippou

first_imgSOME of the gunpowder in a storage facility in Aradippou should be transferred elsewhere so that the area complies with the EU directive on the storage of dangerous substances, the House environment committee agreed on Wednesday as a proposal to ministers.Earlier in the month, Aradippou mayor Evangelos Evangelides requested that some 30 tonnes of gunpowder used to make hunting cartridges be removed from its industrial estate, fearing the consequences of a potential accident.The unit, located in an enclosed industrial area belonging to Larnaca municipality and within Aradippou’s boundaries, threatens the safety of around 1,250 buildings, including commercial, houses, apartment blocks, schools and nursing homes, Evangelides said.Following Wednesday’s meeting, environment committee president Adamos Adamou highlighted the urgent need for a solution, with the committee agreeing to propose in their meeting next week with the ministers of agriculture, labour, interior, and commerce, that as a first step the quantity of stored gunpowder should be reduced to 10 tonnes, in line with threshold of the Seveso-III-Directive (2012/18/EU), before a more permanent solution is found.The EU directive covers establishments where dangerous substances may be present (e.g. during processing or storage) and aims at the prevention of major accidents.Adamou noted that the unit had been given all necessary licences, indicating the sloppiness of the relevant governmental services.The unit has been operating in the area for years but in 2016 it received permission to store some 34 tonnes of gunpowder.According to Evangelides, the unit had secured a town planning permit by derogation, through a cabinet decision in 2016 without asking Aradippou.Deputy president of the committee, Charalambos Theopemptou said that the moment the unit began storing a quantity of gunpowder above the permitted threshold of the directive, residents should have been informed and safety plans drawn up, neither of which happened.As such, the committee’s proposal centres on the initial transfer of 20 tonnes to an alternative location, before the whole unit can be transferred. The decision rests with the relevant ministers who will be discussing the matter next week. You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.
