Ateet Sharma New DelhiMarch 29, 2019UPDATED: March 29, 2019 20:40 IST Trent Boult found the Mankading incident “pretty interesting” (@DelhiCapitals Photo)On a day when Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), the guardian of laws of the game, revisited its stance on R Ashwin Mankading Jos Butler in an IPL game, New Zealand speedster Trent Boult indicated that the controversy could perhaps have been avoided in the first place.Boult, currently in India playing IPL for Delhi Capitals, found the entire incident “pretty interesting” given that the entire cricketing world is still talking about it, three days after the match got over at Jaipur’s Sawai Mansingh Stadium.”I think the IPL tournament in itself is so exciting. Amazing cricket being played, the ball sails everywhere. The best of the best are on show in the tournament. I think we should just play in the right spirit in a way. Yeah, I do not see too much need for anyone to be doing that. One of those things, I am sure we can put it behind us,” said the 29-year-old.Delhi started their campaign in the 12th edition of the tournament on a confident note after beating Mumbai in their own den at the Wankhede Stadium. However they failed to hold up their fort ‘Qila Kotla’ against Chennai in the next game, crashing to a six-wicket defeat on Tuesday. Up next are Kolkata Knight Knight Riders, the current table toppers.”Yeah, they are a quality side and have played quality cricket at the Eden Gardens. It will be a good challenge for us to play them in the conditions that we know well. But, I think the wicket here is on the slower side so it will be a lot different than what they are used to in Kolkata. We are looking forward to the challenge,” Boult said, throwing down the gauntlet at Dinesh Karthik’s team.advertisementThe team has had enough time to recover and ponder over its loss against Chennai in the last game though.”Yeah, we are in good spirits. We know we are playing some good cricket. Obviously, we weren’t our best against CSK the other night but we have taken a lot of confidence out of our performance at the Wankhede and looking forward to the next match,” said Boult.Also Read | IPL 2019: Andre Russell needs freedom to express himself, feels Robin UthappaFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

“For me, I have my students discovering what I want them to learn. No longer am I just telling them, but they are discovering. I also take into consideration that every child learns differently. So at an early stage, I endeavour to find out how my children learn, so that I can cater for their differences,” she states. Educator, Stacey Taylor’s selection as the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information’s National Mathematics Teacher for 2018 is arguably testament of the impact of her unconventional but effective teaching methodology, as manifested in the positive outcomes recorded by her students.A Specialist Mathematics Teacher at Hatfield Primary and Junior High School in Manchester for the past 14 years and an 18-year veteran of the classroom, Miss Taylor attributes her success to her avant-garde approach in delivering the subject.This, she notes, is grounded in the principle that the undertaking is moreso about the process of delivery rather than regarding the subject merely as a body of knowledge.“For me, I have my students discovering what I want them to learn. No longer am I just telling them, but they are discovering. I also take into consideration that every child learns differently. So at an early stage, I endeavour to find out how my children learn, so that I can cater for their differences,” she states.Miss Taylor points out that one of the main strategies she continues to employ is the ‘differentiated instructions’ methodology.She explains that this entails catering to the learning styles of different students by using, among other things, ‘manipulatives’ – which are hands-on inputs that enable the youngsters to develop an understanding of a particular concept.Given Miss Taylor’s background, experience and qualifications, her success should come as no surprise.She is a graduate of The Mico University College, where she obtained a diploma in mathematics. She, thereafter, attained a degree in primary education from the Catholic College of Mandeville in Manchester, and is pursuing a master’s degree in teaching and learning at St. Mary’s University in Minnesota, USA.Miss Taylor’s sojourn in the classroom includes a stint at St. Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS).Her efforts and the resulting outcomes caught the attention of her peers, who unreservedly chose her as this year’s National Mathematics Teacher.Miss Taylor’s prizes comprise an all-expense-paid trip to attend the six-day National Conference for the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), now under way in Washington DC, USA; a one-year NCTM membership; and an Apple iPad. She believes the conference will provide the opportunity for her interaction with other mathematics teachers from across the world and to share best practices.“I expect this to be an extremely rewarding experience, which will definitely help me to grow as a teacher and also to become the resource person for my school. The knowledge gained will enable me to coach other teachers in my school and, hopefully, (across) Jamaica or the region… one day,” Miss Taylor says. The National Mathematics Teacher of the Year Competition is open to teachers at the primary and secondary level.The event, which is sponsored by Jamaica National Bank, is designed to: promote the meaningful learning of mathematics, and celebrate primary and secondary teachers who consistently apply best practices in the subject’s delivery.As part of the competition, nominees are observed teaching on three occasions; interviewed; and are required to make a presentation, focusing on current strategies implemented by the Ministry to promote the teaching and learning of mathematics, analysing these, and to make recommendations where deemed necessary and appropriate.During her presentation, Miss Taylor recommended to the adjudicators that the matriculation standards for prospective maths teachers pursuing tertiary training be raised. Further, that specialist teachers of the subject be deployed to all primary schools.An elated Acting Vice Principal of the Hatfield Primary and Junior High School, Dorna Stultz, describes Miss Taylor as the consummate educator who is astute, dependable, reliable and willing.“When she was announced the winner, we were just ‘screaming down the place’. We knew she was capable of doing it, because mathematics is her baby. She has put Hatfield in the limelight, and persons in the community are so happy that their community can be seen in a different light as of now,” Mrs. Stultz points out.Meanwhile, Miss Taylor says her ultimate goal is to continue to ensure that her students grasp the concepts she imparts in teaching mathematics.“As a teacher, in general, I think it is one of the most rewarding professions – not necessarily monetary reward – but the satisfaction you get when you help to mould the minds of children… . You get this extraordinary feeling of satisfaction that you are making a difference.One of the greatest things for me is the fact that I think that I am making a difference in every child that I touch,” she states The National Mathematics Teacher of the Year competition forms part of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information’s thrust to shift the approach to the subject’s teaching and learning. Since its inception, the competition has been won by Richard Burton, teacher at Windward Road Primary School, Kingston – 2013; Yanique Hall-Harriot, Christiana Leased Primary School, Manchester – 2015; O’Neal McLeod, Godfrey Stewart High School, Westmoreland – 2016; and Neisha Grant Lawrence, of Crescent Primary, St. Catherine – 2017. A Specialist Mathematics Teacher at Hatfield Primary and Junior High School in Manchester for the past 14 years and an 18-year veteran of the classroom, Miss Taylor attributes her success to her avant-garde approach in delivering the subject. Educator, Stacey Taylor’s selection as the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information’s National Mathematics Teacher for 2018 is arguably testament of the impact of her unconventional but effective teaching methodology, as manifested in the positive outcomes recorded by her students.

It will provide payments to eligible individuals who did not have the right documentation to prove their status in the UK and suffered adverse effects on their life as a result. The British Government has established a scheme to compensate members of the Windrush Generation who were unable to prove their right to live in the United Kingdom (UK). “But this goes, someway, towards redressing those considerations. But I hope that what will accompany the compensation… will be a formal UK government apology to the victims concerned,” he added.High Commissioner Ahmad said that with the help of the Jamaican government, the UK has been able to track down “a huge number of people, and some 3,600 have actually had their British citizenship afforded to them”.“So, they haven’t had to wait for many months for that important step to be taken. Our offices here have been processing visas for people who have been deemed to be eligible to return to the United Kingdom. There is a steady flow of those going on over the last few months,” he noted.There are a number of categories of claim. These include loss of access to services (education, healthcare); denial of access to employment and/or benefits; refund of fees for certain immigration applications; compensation for detention, deportation or removal; and impact on normal daily lives.Close family members are also eligible to claim in certain categories if they suffered a direct loss, as are representatives of estates of eligible deceased individuals.The High Commissioner informed that the claim process will be open for two years.“What is unique about this compensation scheme is that it is not budget-limited. As the Home Secretary said, although he has a ballpark figure of how much the exercise is likely to cost, which is £200 million, that is not the ceiling… . If it is more than that, [then that] is what the government will provide,” he pointed out.The Windrush helpline will be open to receive calls from claimants, explain the compensation scheme and provide advice and guidance. The helpline number is +44 (0) 800-678-1925 and persons may call from Monday to Friday between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.“My request to people in Jamaica, the Caribbean and anywhere else outside the UK is to perhaps deal with this better through email,” the High Commissioner said.The email address is WindrushCompensationScheme@homeoffice.gov.uk. Persons in Jamaica can email and request a call-back.The Windrush Generation refers to the immigrants who arrived in the UK between 1948 and 1971 from Jamaica and other Caribbean countries to address labour shortages.Many of them had arrived as children on their parents’ passports, and although they have lived in Britain for many decades, they never formally became British citizens.Amid the tightening of the immigration rules, thousands of persons were being denied services, losing their jobs, facing deportation, among other problems.Last April, UK Prime Minister, Theresa May apologised to 12 Caribbean nations for the treatment of the Windrush Generation in the UK.In addition, the Home Secretary established the Windrush Taskforce, which has helped over 3,600 people secure British citizenship. The British Government has established a scheme to compensate members of the Windrush Generation who were unable to prove their right to live in the United Kingdom (UK).The compensation scheme was announced in London by Home Secretary, Sajid Javid.It will provide payments to eligible individuals who did not have the right documentation to prove their status in the UK and suffered adverse effects on their life as a result.These could range from a loss of employment, access to housing, education, or National Health Service (NHS) healthcare; to emotional distress or deterioration in mental and physical health.The compensation scheme is open to anyone from any nationality who has the right to live or work in the UK without any restrictions or is now a British citizen, and arrived in the UK before December 31, 1988. It is also open to anyone from a Commonwealth country who arrived and settled in the UK before 1973.Certain children and grandchildren of those arriving before 1973 and some close family members may also be eligible to apply. People who were wrongfully detained or removed from the UK could also be able to make a claim.British High Commissioner to Jamaica, His Excellency Asif Ahmad, in providing further details during a press conference at the High Commission in St. Andrew on Wednesday (April 3), said that “no amount of money can undo the injustice, or the pain or damage… to individuals and their families”.British High Commissioner to Jamaica, His Excellency Asif Ahmad, adresses a press conference at the High Commision in St. Andrew on Wednesday (April 3), to provide details about the compensation scheme announced by the United Kingdom (UK) Govermemnt for the Windrush Generation.

zoom Iran has loaded its first oil cargo since the lifting of economic sanctions early January on board a tanker owned by Total SA and the cargo is now bound for Europe, according to the National Iranian Oil Company.Managing Director of Iranian Oil Terminals Company (IOTC), Pirouz Mousavi said that three oil tankers belonging to three European firms from France, Spain and Russia, berthed in Kharg oil Terminal on Sunday, February 14th, after 4 years of suspension due to the imposed sanctions on the country’s energy sector.According to Mousavi, it took 48 hours for tankers to be loaded, adding that all the jetties, crude oil reserves, piping, and Kharg oil facilities have been renovated and “that there is not a single technical and operational difficulty for berthing, loading and separation of European and Asian tankers.”NIOC’s Roknodin Javadi explained that the first three shipments will transport a cargo of 4 million barrels of crude oil, adding that 2 million barrels of the cargo is due to be delivered to France’s Total and the rest will be received by Spanish refiners and a Russian company.Bloomberg’s data shows that the companies that booked the cargoes are Total, Spanish refiner Compania Espanola de Petroleos and Russia’s Lukoil PJSC, chartering the VLCC Atlantas, the Suezmax Monte Toledo and the Distya Akula vessel respectively.As informed, the Atlantas is scheduled to head for European ports, the Monte Toledo for Spain and the Distya Akula for Constantza, Romania.However,numerous uncertainties remain before Iran can return to the market in full scale. Namely, the country’s Energy Minister has announced that Tehran needs to attract USD 200 billion in international investment to modernize its existing oil infrastructure. What is more, discussions are underway over a new Iranian Petroleum Contract offering more flexible terms and conditions..“A degree of uncertainty on the timing, structure and implementation of the new oil contract model remains. Given the level of required investment, significant involvement will be required from international parties who will need clarity on the new Iranian operating environment before committing capital and resource. Given the remaining uncertainties and the enduring risk attached to operating in Iran, the sector will take time to attract required investment,” says UK-based energy consultancy Douglas-Westwood in a comment.World Maritime News Staff
HANOI, Vietnam — The prime ministers of Vietnam and Russia have agreed to nearly triple their bilateral trade volume to $10 billion by 2020 from $3.55 billion last year.Speaking to reporters after talks behind closed doors in Hanoi on Monday, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said the two countries will continue to expand their co-operation in the oil, gas and energy industries and transportation.Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc said bilateral co-operation in defence and security among other things has seen positive results.Russia is Vietnam’s main weapons supplier.Phuc said the two countries will be able to co-operate more effectively through the Russian-led Eurasian Economic Union trade deal, which took effect in 2016, and will boost bilateral trade volume to $10 billion by 2020.The Associated Press
“We have a huge amount of progress still to make to have a meaningful impact for the population on the ground,” John Ging, Gaza Director for the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), told reporters in New York, stressing that 80 per cent of the population is dependent on aid and cannot afford to buy what is available in the shops.“The plight of the people is still desperate,” he said, citing the tiny proportion of construction projects that have so far been approved by Israel – only six of the 100 schools UNRWA has sought to keep up with the student population – and the need to revive the economy through full access for both imports and exports.“All of us on the ground are encouraged by positive developments because we have to turn a corner and we feel that we have turned a corner. We’re still at the bottom of the ladder and we have a hell of a long way to climb back up and that’s why we’re saying now let’s go. For four years we were going in the wrong direction. We have now turned that corner and we are going in the right direction. We need to speed it up.”Israel has blockaded Gaza for over three years but in June it started allowing in more civilian goods while still restricting access to concrete, iron and other materials that the UN says are needed to repair the devastating damage caused by the 2008-2009 offensive Israel said it launched to halt rocket and other attacks against it. Israel says these materials could be used for offensive purposes.Mr. Ging noted that there was 80 per cent aid dependency among Gaza’s 1.5 million inhabitants. “The water situation is in crisis, 90 per cent according to the World Health Organization calculations is unfit for human consumption, 80 million cubic litres of sewage continues to be pumped out into the Mediterranean every single day untreated,” he noted.Tens of thousands of houses that were destroyed in Israel’s offensive still stand in ruins and the construction projects that have been approved so far only account for about 7 per cent of the UN portfolio. “Moving forward, that is what we have to focus on,” Mr. Ging said, stressing the need to revive the commercial sector and resuscitate the import and export economy, with 95 per cent of the business sector now dormant, so as to get people back to work and off aid dependency.“The donor community is no longer able to meet the financial costs of this level of aid dependency,” he added, while still striking what he called “a note of hope and opportunity and urgency.”Detailing the dire needs of the educational sector, with its desperate overcrowding and children learning in shipping containers, he said UNRWA wanted to build 40 schools over the next six to eight months, with 60 more over the next two years, but only six have so far been approved. This would mean turning away 34,000 children. “We must move forward at a much more rapid pace,” he declared.Access is key for all development, he stressed, calling the blockade “illegal, inhumane and counter-productive,” and underscoring the need to move beyond the humanitarian and consumer areas to bringing in commercial supplies and opening up exports. He added that he had encountered good will on the Israeli side and was encouraged by his recent contacts, but this needs to be converted into positive action.It has been shown over the past six months that progress is possible – “it’s small, but possible” – and now the pace must be stepped up, he concluded. “Let’s seize on the opportunity.” 30 November 2010Despite encouraging developments in Gaza since Israel eased its blockade in June, with shops now full of consumer goods, the economic, humanitarian, and physical situation is still extremely bleak, the top United Nations official there said today, calling for speedy moves to revive the territory’s economy
India’s Marine Police of Coastal Security Group (CSG) on Wednesday arrested A. Arul Jayarathinam alias Rajan (41), the suspected LTTE militant, who was detained by Indian Coast Guard (ICG) for illegal entry into the country, The Hindu newspaper reported.The Marine Police arrested him under Section 14 of the Foreigners Act, read with Sections 3 (a) and 6 (a) of the Passport (Entry into India) Rules, 1950. He was produced before Rameswaram Magistrate Court and taken to Chennai to be remanded in judicial custody in Puzhal Central Prison. The police said Rajan was in possession of one million US dollars, a mobile phone, baby oil and some children’s dresses. The US dollars and other properties seized from him were handed to the court, the police said. He was detained by Mandapam Station of the ICG after he clandestinely landed at the Third Islet in the Gulf of Mannar National Park on Monday night. Interrogation by the Marine and Q Branch police revealed that he had served in the mechanical division of the LTTE from 1996 to 1998 before leaving the militant group. He faced six to seven cases ain Sri Lanka and was acquitted in all the cases, he told the officials. He however, feared threat to his life by the Lankan armed forces and arrived here clandestinely to stay with his sister living in Muthupettai near Pudumadam in the district. His sister, who arrived here as a refugee, had been residing here for more than nine years, the police said. Rajan hailed from Mulliavalai town in the Mullaitivu district in Sri Lanka’s Northern Province, the police said, adding he had come to India, leaving behind his mother, wife and four children, including three daughters. After he ‘settled down’ here, his wife and children planned to visit him.
“Reform is not an end in itself. The purpose of reform is simple and clear: to best position the United Nations to do the work that Member States ask us to do,” said Mr. Guterres in his remarks to the Fifth Committee. He said that his reports to the General Assembly outlined reform of the peace and security architecture, development system reform and management reform aimed at simplifying procedures and decentralizing decisions, with greater transparency, efficiency, agility and accountability. Elaborating on the management reform, Mr. Guterres proposed moving from a biennial to an annual budget, and shortening the planning and budgetary cycle from five to three years. He also asked Member States’ support to grant him additional authority to redeploy resources up to 20 per cent of a section within the budget parts, not between parts. This would enable the UN Secretariat to better respond to changing demands while preserving the principle that resources allocated for particular pillars of the Organization should be used for those pillars. The UN chief also proposed that the scope of the commitment authority for “unforeseen and extraordinary expenses” be broadened to cover unforeseen events in the areas of development and human rights, beyond peace and security.As for the duplicative functions undertaken by different departments, he proposed establishing a Department of Management Strategy, Policy and Compliance with a clear policy, strategy and compliance role, which will be complemented by a Department of Operational Support focusing on operations, services, transactions and surge support to entities in weak environments.Regarding the Umoja enterprise resource planning system and the global service delivery model, he proposed that these functions be carried out in two or three centres and to undertake a strategic assessment of locations. He also proposed streamlining and simplifying human resources rules, processes and procedures to ensure timely recruitment, deployment and staff development. Mr. Guterres stressed that achieving gender parity and increasing geographical diversity are important aspects of his reforms. He said within his Executive Office, gender parity has been achieved in professional position while geographical diversity has also been substantially increased.“This shows that the two goals are not mutually exclusive but reinforcing. It also shows what I am able to do with greater managerial authority,” he said.
Ohio State redshirt sophomore tackle Branden Bowen hits a pad at the first practice of fall camp on July 27. Credit: Colin Hass-Hill | Sports Editor.Just three days prior to Thursday’s season opener against Indiana in Bloomington, Ohio State’s football team released its first depth chart of the 2017 season. Offensive tackle Branden Bowen will start … at right guardWhen coach Urban Meyer spoke at Big Ten Media Days prior to fall camp, he named seven players as potential candidates to win the starting right guard spot: Malcolm Pridgeon and Demetrius Knox, Matt Burrell and Branden Bowen and Wyatt Davis, Josh Myers and Thayer Munford.Burrell started in the spring game, which seemingly gave him an edge in the wide-open position battle. Though Meyer said Burrell put forth his best effort to win the job, he noted that one player — Bowen — rose above the competition and deserved to be named the starter. “He’s the most improved guy, one of the most improved players on our team,” Meyer said of Bowen. “Something clicked with him in early summer. I heard it from [strength and conditioning] coach Mick [Marotti]. I saw it. It really wasn’t that close, to be honest with you.”Ohio State offensive line coach Greg Studrawa coaches his unit at a fall practice on Aug. 5. Credit: Colin Hass-Hill | Sports Editor.As the position battle has raged over the past few months, Meyer and offensive line coach Greg Studrawa preached that the eventual starter at right guard would be the most consistent lineman. “When you look at Bowen, you just think, like, ‘That’s a huge guy.’ You see the potential there. You see what you can be,” defensive end Tyquan Lewis said of the 6-foot-7, 312-pound offensive lineman. “He just looks like he’s motivated more. He’s like ready to go play now.”Of the four upperclassmen in the mix at right guard, Bowen is the only one who didn’t play guard last season. The former offensive tackle provided insurance to right tackle Isaiah Prince and left tackle Jamarco Jones as their backups.. He was expected to play the same role this year. Just three weeks ago, Meyer said the battle to win the job was between Pridgeon, Burrell and Knox. He noted that Bowen was playing well enough to earn playing time, but he felt unsure about moving the offensive tackle inside to guard because it would diminish the depth outside. During Monday’s press conference, Meyer made it clear he simply couldn’t keep Bowen off the field.“[Top backup offensive tackle] Munford has done a nice job, but those concerns are there,” Meyer said. “But you’ve also got to get your first five in there.”On the opening-week depth chart, Munford is listed as backup right tackle and Joshua Alabi is slotted to back up Jones at left tackle. Meyer does not and should not have much confidence though, as Munford has spent less than a year in the program and Alabi switched from the defensive line to the offensive side of the ball in the spring.But given Bowen’s ascendance, Meyer assumed he could sacrifice the depth the former tackle would bring on the outside to improve the interior of the line. Even the linemen on the other side of the ball who compete against him in practice have noticed Bowen’s growth.“During the summer, you could start to see that he would train with a purpose,” defensive end Jalyn Holmes said. “Even when he messes up, he’s with coach Stud asking what he could do better. He’s carrying himself as a professional, and that’s why he’s a starter.”Mike Weber’s health remains a questionFive weeks after running back Mike Weber injured his hamstring in a practice, Meyer acknowledged the tweak was still hampering him. “He’s very close [to being 100 percent]. I’ll know more today, but he’s close,” Meyer said.OSU redshirt sophmore running back Mike Weber (25) throws the ball out of the endzone during the 2017 Spring Game at Ohio Stadium on April 15, 2017. Credit: Mason Swires | Former Assistant Photo EditorThis lack of clarity comes after many players and coaches had confidently said the second-year starter will play in Thursday’s season-opener against Indiana. Two weeks ago, running backs coach Tony Alford said Weber would “absolutely” be the starter in Week 1. At the end of July, Meyer said Weber was dealing with a “little tight hamstring.”But on the opening depth chart, Weber was not listed as the sole starter. Instead, he and freshman running back J.K. Dobbins are dual starters. At Monday’s press conference, Meyer didn’t specify whether the reasoning for having both as starters was due to Weber’s health.The coach said he doesn’t feel like the first-year running back will start, but left open the possibility of starting Dobbins in his first career game.Weber didn’t have much competition last year. The first-year starter rushed 182 times for 1,096 yards, finding the end zone on nine occasions. Behind him, Demario McCall took just 42 carries 273 yards and did much of his damage during garbage time in the Buckeyes’ blowout wins.This year, Dobbins figures to take a decent portion of Weber’s carries. He has been heralded as one of the most impressive Ohio State freshmen in recent years. Alford said Dobbins picked up the offense faster than any first-year player he has ever coached.Starting safety battle ongoingSince the spring, Erick Smith and Jordan Fuller have been locked in a battle to be named the starter at strong safety alongside Damon Webb. According to Monday’s depth chart, the battle continues despite the first game of the season being only three days away.Though defensive coordinator and safeties coach Greg Schiano and Meyer have effusively praised Webb’s development as the only returning starter in the secondary, they have been largely silent and coy about the Smith-Fuller battle.Smith is entering his fifth season at Ohio State, but he has dealt with numerous injuries, including an ACL tear in 2015. Though Fuller has only played for the Buckeyes for one season, the former four-star prospect is a lanky 6-foot-2, 202-pound athlete whose potential might be enticing enough to win him a starting position.
A spokesman for Thames Valley Police said officers had arrested a 15-year-old boy from Henley-on-Thames.”We are appealing for witnesses following an incident in which damage was caused to a car by a forklift truck,” the spokesman added. “We received reports that a forklift truck being driven erratically through the area.”During the incident a car was overturned and damaged. The forklift truck was driven down Woodlands Road, Wood Lane, Green Lane and Baskerville Road in Sonning Common.”Officers attended the scene and arrested a 15-year-old boy from Henley-on-Thames on suspicion of causing criminal damage and possession of a firearm.He is currently in police custody.Detective Constable Francesca Griffin, of Force CID based at Abingdon, said: “We are aware this incident has caused disruption in the Sonning Common area last night.”We would like anyone who we have not spoken to about this incident to call us with any information that they may have.” Frightened locals dialled 999 and police arrived in the village and the force helicopter circled overhead as officers tried to bring the spree to an end.On Wednesday the Fiat Punto was still laying on its side with holes punched in the doors of the car from where the fork lift truck had been rammed into it to flip it over.The forklift truck was believed to have been taken from a shop in Sonning Common, near Reading, Berks, on Tuesday evening.Motorists said they had driven behind the forklift as it was being driving erratically as they took their children home form after school evening clubs.However, as darkness fell the jape took a more serious turn with the driver pointing a rifle at people who were forced to dived for cover. This is actually mad. There’s a kid flipping cars in a forklift and waving a gun about like its every day businessWitness A schoolboy has been arrested on suspicion of taking a forklift truck on a two-hour rampage around his village, scooping up a family car and turning it on its side before pointing a gun at people as they dived for cover.A blue Fiat Punto was left overturned during the apparent joyriding spree on Tuesday evening. A 15-year-old suspect has been questioned and released on police bail.Residents dived behind cars and hid inside their homes behind locked doors as the driver of the forklift allegedly pulled out a gun and pointed it at people who dared to challenge him about the escapade. 13/9 2100hrs Sonning Common @tvpsouthandvale for a male damaging vehicles. Possible suspect located by us and followed, Now arrested #p6572— NPAS Benson (@NPAS_Benson) September 13, 2016 Liam Carter, who is working in the Berkshire area but comes from Essex, said: “So we are having a quiet pint after work and someone started to drive round in a stolen forklift so naturally we all whip our phones out to take a picture.”As he gets right in front of us he starts mouthing of to us then drives off and pulls a gun out then ducked behind the car.”Another resident said: “Someone has nicked a forklift and is tipping cars over and also has an air rifle …. It’s almost unbelievable. What an idiot.”I followed him home earlier he’s been driving around for hours!”Another said the driver had jumped onto the forklift and was carrying the gun by his side.He said: “We then pooped ourselves and ran to the house!”Other saw mopeds following the tractor as it circled the village near closed primary schools.Another resident, who saw the forklift truck being driven around, said: “I saw a guy tearing down Baskerville Road on a forklift with a motorcyclist behind him (neither had lights on, only a lantern at the front of the forklift which was as effective as a chocolate teapot).”God, it was an accident waiting to happen.”The crew of the police helicopter unit NPAS Benson tweeted that they had been sent to assist in the search for the driver and said: Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

A lunar eclipse is much better than a solar eclipse simply because you can actually view it with your naked eye. Tonight we all get a chance to see a total lunar eclipse, with the only difference being the time you’ll see it based on your location.Thankfully, the MrEclipse.com website has produced this very useful table so you’ll know exactly when to start looking up at the sky:That table is extra useful as the eclipse will happen gradually, with over an hour between the partial eclipse beginning to the full blackout starting to happen. If you’re only interested in viewing the total eclipse, then you just need to look at the “Mid-Eclipse” time for your timezone.Eastern and Atlantic time zones will have the most difficult time viewing the eclipse due to the time it occurs being the very early hours of the morning when most of us are asleep. You also can’t count on the sky being clear of clouds to see the moon in the first place.Here’s hoping for clear skies tonight.Read more at Examiner.com

Tottenham forward Son Heung-min will not dwell on his past feats against Borussia Dortmund ahead of tonight’s first leg of their last-16 Champions League tie.After going winless in their opening three Group B games, Spurs produced a remarkable recovery to snatch second-place from Inter Milan on goal difference on the back of winning two of their final three matches.Now Mauricio Pochettino’s side will test their mettle against Bundesliga leaders Dortmund at Wembley tonight, where they hope to go one better than last season’s last-16 exit to Juventus.And Son, who previously played for Hamburg and Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga, has scored eight goals in nine appearances against Dortmund and won six of those encounters.“I don’t know!” Son told the club website, when asked about his strong record against BVB.“Borussia Dortmund are one of the best teams in Germany, they are top of the table right now and it’s a special thing for me to play against them.“It’s always been an honour to play against them, especially as I’ve won most times! It’s always great to win against such a big team. That doesn’t matter though, it is history and I just want to focus on this game.“Football changes so quickly. Last season in the group stage they were still a great side but they’ve improved, they are even better than last season. It will be a very good game and I’m so excited to play against them again.”Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.German football expert Raphael Honigstein also warns that Spurs will be in for a tricky time against Dortmund, despite their recent injury problems.“Injuries at the back have come back to bite them a little in recent weeks,” said Honigstein.“Julian Weigl, who is normally a midfielder, has been filling in at centre-back because they’ve had many injuries – Manuel Akanji hasn’t played this year, Dan-Axel Zagadou isn’t quite right so they’ve been forced to make changes and they’ve suffered a little for it.“There was also an element of sloppiness involved against Hoffenheim (led 3-0 after 75 minutes, drew 3-3 on Saturday), they thought the game was won and they were much closer to scoring a fourth goal than Hoffenheim were to scoring but they were then caught cold. It was a similar story against Werder Bremen in the DFB Cup, where they conceded too many silly goals (drew 3-3, lost on penalties) and got knocked out.“However, in both of those games, the results actually mask the superiority of Dortmund for much of the games. They were in control, could have scored more goals and it’s only because their finishing wasn’t clinical that they allowed those teams back in and paid the price.“They have only lost once in the Bundesliga, they beat Bayern Munich, beat Atletico Madrid 4-0 in the Champions League – the heaviest defeat of the Diego Simeone era – and apart from losing against Atletico at the Wanda Metropolitano (in the return game in the UCL) their only defeat is at Fortuna Dusseldorf.“Okay, you could count the DFB Cup defeat on penalties, but in terms of 90 minutes they’ve only lost two games all season – that shows just how consistent they have been.”The match at Wembley between Spurs and Dortmund will begin at 9:00 PM (CET).LONDON, ENGLAND – FEBRUARY 10: Heung-Min Son of Tottenham Hotspur celebrates scoring his teams third goal during the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City at Wembley Stadium on February 10, 2019 in London, United Kingdom.

Total revenue for RBI was $1.7 million in 2007, with adjusted operating profits of $253 million, cash conversion was 109% providing a stable and attractive cash flow.Smith noted the division’s “history of diligent cost and headcount management.” The company, he said, “has no plans for a large scale layoff or other special headcount reduction program beyond the extreme care we continue to exercise on headcount additions.”NOTE: Read both memos here. With rumors flying yesterday following Reed Elsevier’s announcement that it would sell its Reed Business Information division—a dramatic decision to divest its advertising-supported businesses—CEO Tad Smith tried to reassure RBI staffers that their jobs would be intact—including his.“I am committed to leading our business as your CEO during the sale process and thereafter,” Smith wrote in an internal memo. “In the meantime, business will continue as usual and everyone’s jobs, benefits and pay will be unaffected.”“The announcement this morning neither surprises nor worries me,” Smith added. “We have a vibrant and exciting business that is successfully making the transition from print to online across dozens of market sectors in countries all around the world. There will be a healthy appetite for our business and your many contributions as staff members.”Reed Business global chief Gerard van de Aast also moved quickly to reassure its 8,164 employees. “It is important to note that this says nothing about the quality and attractiveness of our business and the markets we serve,” he wrote in a spate memo.
The start of the cruise ship season brings a new excursion from one of the oldest tour outfits in Southeast. Allen Marine Tours is set to run hovercraft trips to the Taku Glacier starting this week.Listen now:Allen Marine Tours are running new hovercraft trips to Taku Glacier. (Photo by Dave Bryant/Allen Marine Tours) It’s been about 20 years since Allen Marine last brought visitors to the Taku Glacier, located near Juneau at the head of Taku Inlet. John Dunlap is vice president of Allen Marine Tours. He says the company used to go to the glacier with a large catamaran back in the 1990s.“We would get as close to the glacier as we could, which at a low tide was several miles away and at a higher tide, we could maybe get within a few miles of the face of the glacier,” Dunlap says. “So it was kind of a pretty variable experience.”So variable that Allen Marine stopped doing it after a few years.“But we always thought, ‘Gosh, if we had the right kind of vehicle, we’d like to come back up here and do this better,’” Dunlap says.Allen Marine bought a hovercraft from a Washington company last year and started experimenting with it.“It doesn’t matter whether the tide’s out or not. You can travel with equal ease over water or if you’ve got to pass over shallow water and sand bars, that’s fine, too,” Dunlap says.The hovercraft will soon start carrying paying customers. The 4-hour tour includes more than an hour on the hovercraft. Tourists leave from downtown Juneau on a jet-powered catamaran to lower Taku Inlet, where Allen Marine will have a larger ship staged that serves as the hover base. There, tourists will transfer into an 8-person hovercraft which will take them close to the face of the glacier, where they disembark for 30 minutes.The whole trip costs more than $300 per adult. Dunlap admits it’s quite a bit more than Allen Marine’s established whale watching tours and Tracy Arm trips.“For us, it’s a little bit more like having a helicopter tour which tend to be fairly expensive tours because of the equipment involved than what we’ve traditionally done with boat tours that have higher capacity and are a little bit more efficient to run,” says Dunlap.Hovercrafts travel on a trapped bubble of air. Dunlap describes it as a small barge that sits on an inflated rubber skirt. Allen Marine hopes to have three running this summer. It has one now and has ordered two more. Each one is 22 feet long and about 10 feet wide. Dunlap says they don’t make any more noise than a boat of similar size.Ron Maas owns 150 acres on the Taku River. He says he bought the property about 20 years ago because of its direct view of the glacier. He’s not excited about the new Allen Marine tours.“That puts a whole different light on that property of ours. We consider it something very special but, Jesus, if we have to listen to this all the time, it’s not going to be much fun.There’s so much traffic up there now that it’s a constant thing,” Maas says.Maas acknowledges his role in the traffic and noise near the glacier. He’s the former owner of the Taku Glacier Lodge. Visitors to Juneau are brought there by float planes.“I had 14 aircraft when I sold out and, of course, we made eight trips a day with each airplane, so I really can’t complain a lot about noise, but we tried to control the noise the best we could,” Maas says.He also doesn’t like the idea of seeing people walk near the face of the glacier. Dunlap says Allen Marine has state and federal permits allowing people to walk in that area.Juneau commercial fisherman Jim Becker is wondering if the hovercraft will affect juvenile salmon coming out of the Taku River. He’s been gillnetting for Taku River salmon for 40 years.“The concern is we have outmigrating smolt coming out of the river and some fry, and I don’t know what the depth is in front of the glacier and what kind of water depth they’re going to be operating in, so I think that needs to be checked out,” Becker says.Alaska Fish and Game biologist Leon Shaul doesn’t foresee any issues.“In that area near Taku Glacier, I wouldn’t think it would have much impact,” Shaul says. “That’s a pretty open area and tidal influenced, so I wouldn’t imagine it’d be a lot different than a boat.”Dunlap says Allen Marine will not be going up the river.He says cruise ship passengers have already started signing up for the hovercraft tours. As interest grows, Dunlap expects Allen Marine to operate consistent tours within a few weeks.
Whisky [Representational Image]ReutersThe Indian arm of the French alcohol gaint Pernod Ricard has been given the controlling rights to build global markets for three big local whiskies – Blenders Pride, Imperial Blue and Royal Stag.This will mark first such move by any multinational alcohol company. Pernod Ricard has bestowed the status of a brand company to the Indian subsidiary, giving it the ownership to develop international markets, the Times of India reported.The move will also elevate Pernod Ricard India’s status at par with Irish Distillers which owns Jameson Whisky, Polish vodka maker Wyborowa and Swedish owner of Absolut vodka, V&S Group.This decision comes after two Indian single malt brands Paul John and Amrut garnered a huge interest in the international markets recently.Amrut Whisky which started in Bengaluru is India’s first single malt that is acclaimed as world’s third best single malt whisky. When compared with the single malts available around the world, Amrut is one of the youngest.The Indian whiskies could find consumers across the Americas, Southeast Asia, besides tapping the Middle East and African markets.’We believe our Indian whiskies address the need of the fast growing middle-class consumers globally, which is going to be a key source of growth in the coming years,” said Guillaume Girard-Reydet, Managing Director at Pernod Ricard India.”We believe this is a game-changing opportunity as Royal Stag, Imperial Blue and Blenders Pride are all set to tap the mainstream opportunity across the world and create a robust value whisky portfolio globally,” he added.Pernod India also plans to set up a new team for international business which will likely come up with new branding and marketing plans and strategies to engage the attention of the global market. Representational ImageFacebook/ BudweiserBut, recent reports suggest that the French liquor giant reported only a marginal one percent increase in its India sales for the financial year 2016-17 compared to 12 percent increase during the previous financial year—driven by regulatory changes.However, according to a latest forecast by the International Wine and Spirits Research (IWSR), Indian whiskies, including scotch, will be among the largest contributors of growth to the global whisky market over the next five years.Beer and wine, on the other hand, are expected to gain the most in terms of volumes in the overall alcohol market over the next five years. Further the strongest growth for beer is expected to come from Mexico, India and Vietnam.

Stay on target Trade In Your Nintendo Switch For a Better Battery (With a Catch)Get Used to ‘Fortnite’s’ Powerful Mech Suits 90s nostalgia has never been stronger so we shouldn’t be shocked that Power Rangers as a #brand is arguably more powerful than it has ever been, at least since it first debuted. Not even a bad big-budget movie reboot with gross redesigns for the characters could do that much damage to the franchise. For the past 25 years we’ve all just loved these teens who morph into super sentai heroes too much.And we especially love them when they fight. So that’s why your next Power Rangers obsession might be Power Rangers: Battle For The Grid, a real fighting game coming soon to PC and consoles.Battle For The Grid comes from nWay, who previously put out Power Rangers games for mobile. But this game looks like it’s taking impressive advantage of its promotion to dedicated gaming hardware. Fights look surprisingly crisp and colorful, with noticeable detail on the Rangers’ outfits and weapons. It doesn’t reach Dragon Ball FighterZ’s visual heights of playing the show itself but it’s something. Characters are pulled across all incarnations of the show, from the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers to whatever the heck is happening right now after Hasbro snatched up the series.As for the fighting itself, Battle For The Grid seems to use a tag-based team fighting system popularized by other wacky superhero fighting games like Marvel vs. Capcom. It’s a smart way to show-off the high-flying moves of the heroes and villains as well as have more characters show up in a single fight since the characters are what players love the most anyway. Here’s hoping the utterly broken Ivan Ooze from the 1995 Power Rangers fighting game Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Fighting Edition makes an appearance (ideally with more balanced).Power Rangers: Battle For The Grid launches on PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 (albeit without crossplay thanks to Sony) for just $20 in April. Give your kids a fighting game to play while you’re ripping off faces in Mortal Kombat 11.
