After Karthik’s dismissal, Baba Aparajith took matters into his own hand and he changed the tempo of his innings to put pressure on Himachal Pradesh bowlers.Aparajith then found support in Shahrukh Khan and both batters took Tamil Nadu over the line by five wickets with 13 balls to spare. The duo formed an unbeaten stand of 75 runs off just 32 balls to Tamil Nadu over the finishing line.Earlier, a three-wicket haul by Sonu Yadav helped Tamil Nadu restrict Himachal Pradesh to 135/9 in the allotted twenty overs.Asked to bat first, Himachal Pradesh got off to a bad start as the side lost its opener Prashant Chopra (6) in the fourth over of the innings. Baba Aparajith then dismissed Rana (28) in the seventh over, reducing Himachal Pradesh to 39/2.Nitin Sharma and RI Thakur then got together at the crease and the duo stitched a brief 29-run stand, but as soon as Himachal Pradesh started gaining an upper hand, Sandeep Warrier dismissed Nitin (26), reducing the side to 68/3 in the 12th over.Tamil Nadu bowlers were able to maintain a check on the run-flow, and for Himachal Pradesh, skipper Rishi Dhawan played an unbeaten knock of 35 runs and in the end, the side posted a total of more than the 130-run mark in the allotted twenty overs.Brief Scores: Himachal Pradesh 135/9 (Rishi Dhawan 35*, Nitin Sharma 26, Sonu Yadav 3-14); Tamil Nadu 141/5 (Baba Aparajith 52*, Shahrukh Khan 40*, Vaibhav Arora 3-30).HIMACHAL PRADESH INNINGS BATSMENRB4s6sSR ICC WTC Final: 10 years of Virat Kohli’s Test career, 10 best moments of India’s greatest Test skipper Ayush Jamwal b Sonu Yadav340075.00 Cricket WI vs SA 2nd Test Day 2 Stumps: West Indies bowled out for 149 runs in 1st innings, SA lead by 149 runs Ekant Sen c †KD Karthik b Sonu Yadav571071.43 Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 QF2 HP VS TN: Aparajith, Shahrukh shine as Tamil Nadu defeat Himachal Pradesh to reach semis Pankaj Jaswal c Arun Karthik b Sandeep Warrier7401175.00 Previous articleFAUG launched: Check gameplay, download links and first impression of FAUGNext articleAustralia tour of South Africa: Wade dropped, Alex Carey included in the Australian squad Kunal DhyaniSports Tech enthusiast, he reports on Sports Tech industry and writes on sports products.

2 FTSE 100 UK shares I’d buy for 2021

first_img2 FTSE 100 UK shares I’d buy for 2021 Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 7th February, 2021 | More on: LGEN NWG Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares I believe the FTSE 100 is full of UK shares worth buying right now. In particular, two companies stand out to me as being attractive acquisitions. These are the banking giant NatWest (LSE: NWG) and the financial services group Legal & General (LSE: LGEN). These businesses might not be suitable for everyone. Financial companies can be difficult to analyse, and it’s challenging to determine which assets sit on their balance sheets. Unfortunately, as many investors found out during the financial crisis, this can become a significant problem if many of the assets owned by these businesses turn out to be worth nothing. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…However, I’m comfortable with the level of risk here. I also believe that the management of both of these UK shares has done everything possible to reduce risk, although that does not guarantee that they have eliminated this risk. FTSE 100 income championLegal & General is one of the largest financial companies in the UK in terms of total assets. The group manages over £1.1trn of assets for clients. I think this gives it a strong competitive advantage. The high level of assets means it can achieve economies of scale. Meanwhile, the firm’s size can attract customers who may not be comfortable investing their money with a smaller business. I think these are all highly desirable qualities. They also support the company’s dividend. At the time of writing, shares in the firm support a dividend yield of 7%. While this distribution is by no means guaranteed, it’s significantly above the FTSE 100 average, which stands at around 3.5%.Legal’s size and diversification do not make it immune to challenges. Rising costs due to increased regulation or headwinds such as Brexit could hit the firm’s bottom line. That might have an impact on the dividend. As a pension manager, the group’s balance sheet is also highly susceptible to changes in interest rates. A significant change in interest rates could have an enormous negative impact on the balance sheet and cause instability across the business.So, that’s something I will be keeping an eye on going forward. However, I based on the company’s current qualities and income potential I would buy the stock as part of a diversified basket of UK shares for 2021. Recovery playNatWest could face similar challenges to Legal. The bank’s primary business is lending money to customers. That means profits rise when interest rates increase. Unfortunately, it also means profits fall when interest rates decline. The lender may face challenges if the Bank of England decides to introduce negative interest rates. Still, it looks as if negative rates are off the table for the time being. That seems like good news to me. The UK vaccination programme also suggests there’s light at the end of the pandemic tunnel, which implies the UK economy may begin to recover in the second half of 2021. That would be positive for the FTSE 100 bank’s outlook, although a resurgence of the virus would be bad news and could delay a recovery. Nevertheless, I’m comfortable with the risks the business faces, and as a result, would buy the stock for my portfolio in 2021.  Click here to get access to our presentation, and learn how to get the name of this ‘double agent’!

Gold Coast Sevens draw sees England face Samoa, Kenya and Spain

first_img Old foes: Dan Norton tackles Samoa’s Paul Perez during the Hong Kong SevensENGLAND WILL face Samoa, Kenya and Spain on the opening day of the HSBC Sevens World Series on October 13.The draw was made today for the Gold Coast Sevens in Australia, the first of nine legs in this season’s series which concludes with the Marriott London Sevens next May.England finished third in last season’s competition, with Samoa in fourth place and Kenya 12th. Spain are a new ‘core’ team after finishing second in the qualifying competition in Hong Kong this year.This season England’s expanded squad of 19 full-time players, warmed up last weekend against Spain and France in Villajoyosa, were led by head coach Ben Ryan.Ryan said: “We’re in excellent shape after a very demanding pre-season programme and standards in the squad have been driven up by the intense competition for places.“The draw for the Gold Coast brings home just how close we are now to the kick-off of what promises to be the biggest season ever for sevens. We’re in the Olympic cycle now with the HSBC Sevens World Series followed immediately by the Rugby World Cup Sevens in Moscow next June. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS “Every draw is a difficult one now: Samoa were tough to play throughout last season, Kenya always give us tough games and we know Spain really well – they’ve got lots of talent and will want to prove they deserve their place at the top table.”The cross-over for the knock-out stages means England potentially face Fiji or Australia in the quarter-finals if they make it out of Pool C.Champions New Zealand face South Africa, USA and newcomers Canada in Pool A, while Wales are in a competitive Pool D with Argentina, France and Portugal.

Top 14 relegation fight hots up

first_imgFour teams are all battling to avoid the drop from the French top flight as the season reaches its climax – here’s the lowdown… In danger: Perpignan’s James HookPerpignan’s trio of matches are hardly any less daunting. The Catalans host Oyonnax on Saturday, followed a week later by Toulon and their campaign then ends at Clermont.And spare a thought for Oyonnax. After their trip to Perpignan, they entertain Toulouse before bringing down the curtain on their season with a trip to Brive, beaten just once at home this season.Grenoble must also face Toulouse – on the last day of the championship – but before then they host Montpellier and Bayonne. The fact they’ve six more points than Bayonne means that if Grenoble secure a bonus-point win against the Basques on 19 April they’ll be safe. In the top half of the table, meanwhile, Oyonnax’s win was good news for a host of clubs locked in the struggle to secure one of the six play-off places. Only eight points separate leaders Montpellier from Toulouse in sixth, hence the reason Toulouse put in such a limp performance against Munster on Saturday. The Top 14 is their priority and while their 58 points keeps them in the play-offs, Bordeaux and Stade (7th and 8th) have the same number of points while 9th-placed Brive are on 55 and have arguably the easiest run-in.All of which means we’re in for a tense few weeks this side of the Channel. Anyone know the French for ‘squeaky bum time’? Pointing the way: Oyonnax celebrate after beating Bordeaux Bégles but they are still at risk of relegation center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS In the foothills of the Alps last Saturday no one gave a hoot about the Heineken Cup. Instead all eyes in Oyonnax were on their rearranged Top 14 fixture against Bordeaux. Originally, the match had been scheduled for February, but the shocking weather that battered the British Isles for much of that month also brought havoc in France and the match was postponed because of severe flooding.On Saturday evening Oyonnax beat Bordeaux 26-12 in the rearranged fixture, a result that lifts them from 13th to 11th. They now have 48 points, four more than Bayonne, who slip into the relegation zone, and two more than Perpignan. With Biarritz already condemned to the Pro2 next season, it means Bayonne, Perpignan, Oyonnax  and Grenoble (on 50 points) must all scrap like crazy in the three remaining rounds of the regular season.Pulling together: Bayonne are in 13th placeRelegation dogfights are always vicious affairs but this season’s will have more bite than usual given the recent TV deal agreed between the LNR and Canal Plus. Of the €355m heading the way of the French domestic game in the next five years, 63% will feather the nests of Top 14 clubs with the remaining 37% divided up among the 16 clubs in the Pro2. That’s a huge discrepancy, one guaranteed to give the presidents of those four clubs in the relegation red zone sleepless nights between now and 3 May, the date of the final round of matches.In gravest danger of the drop are Bayonne, which would be a devastating blow to Basque pride. To see one regional club relegated in a season is bad enough, but were Biarritz and Bayonne both to forfeit their elite status then it would only strengthen the calls in some quarters for the two clubs to merge.Bayonne’s trio of outstanding matches are tough. This Saturday they host Stade Francais with the Parisians knowing they must win to keep alive their hopes of qualifying for the play-offs. On the penultimate weekend of the regular season, Bayonne travel to Grenoble, who have lost only twice at home this season, and last up are Castres. While the reigning champions have an appalling record on the road this season (just one win in Montpellier), they will be desperate to win to guarantee their place in the place-offs.last_img read more

In that victory, TCU lost the doubles point despite senior Reese Stalder and sophomore Bertus Kruger’s upset over the No. 7 ranked doubles duo.Senior Alex Rybakov, junior Alastair Gray, freshman Luc Fomba and Kruger all won their singles matches to clinch. In his biggest upset of the year, No. 8 Rybakov, No. 14 in the nation at the time, defeated then-No. 11 Nuno Borges. Borges has risen to No. 5 since the match.“Rybakov can beat anybody. We lost [to Florida] 4-3 without Rybakov helping us in singles or doubles,” head coach David Roditi said. “For the program, it speaks a lot for our lineup.”The Frogs used their indoor facility last weekend for the Wichita State and Florida matches because of storms and cold weather, giving them a possible edge for the indoor tournament.“It turned out to be a great preparation for us going indoors. We got lucky in that respect,” Roditi said. “As far as preparation, it’s great.

Caricaturist Djamel Noun threatened by staff of state-owned TV station

first_img  Reporters Without Borders today voiced its concern about the recurrence of cases in which individuals or groups react to press criticism by threatening journalists with impunity, this time caricaturist Djamel Noun of the Arab-language daily El Youm, who went into hiding for three days after being threatened by employees of the state-owned ENTV television station on 7 August over a cartoon lampooning its method of recruiting women (see Drawing).”This is the second time in a month that citizens decide to take justice into their own hands by threatening a journalist”, Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said. “This serious incident furthers the collapse in the rule of law and shows that the notion of press freedom is without meaning in Algeria”, Ménard said. “The organisation is concerned at the repeated use by citizens of intimidation towards journalists and calls on the Algerian authorities to quickly put an end to this climate of impunity”, he added.When Noun resurfaced on 10 August after three days in hiding, he said he had been forced to change his place of residence because of the threats by the ENTV employees. “Everyone heard them say they knew where I lived and that they had decided to ‘finish’ with me”, Noun said, referring to their protest outside the newspaper on 7 August. He also claimed that, at the behest of television employees union president Djamel Mâafa, the TV station had begun a smear campaign against him, calling him a “terrorist”and likening him to GIA chief Antar Zouabri.The 7 August protest began at about 4 pm, when several dozen ENTV employees gathered outside El Youm’s offices at the Tahar-Djaout press centre in Algiers. The agitated protesters tried to force their way into the newspaper’s offices and, after spurning an invitation to send in a three-member delegation, they began to insult its journalists and threaten Noun. They told journalists present that they would “ransack everything” if they managed to get inside, and that they would prosecute the newspaper’s editors.Previously, the newspaper was ordered to pay 210,000 Dinars (2,789 Euros) in damages on 30 July 2002 as a result of an ENTV libel lawsuit over an article alleging improprieties in the TV station’s financial management.

Jassam had worked for Reuters for four years and had received a number of anonymous death threats.More than 20 journalists have been arrested in Iraq in similar circumstances since 1st January 2008, all of whom have been released after spending days or even months in custody without any charges being made against them.One recent instance was the case of Ahmed Nuri, a cameraman working for Associated Press, who was freed on 23 August 2008, after being held for 80 days at the US military base Camp Cropper.Photographer Bilal Hussein, who also works for Associated Press (AP) was released on 16 April 2008 after spending 735 day in detention.“We have noticed an upsurge in the number of arrests of journalists by Iraqi security forces or members of the coalition,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “To date the number of arrests in 2008 has already passed the number last year. Simply possessing a camera or a film camera seems to be taken as evidence that some journalists are involved in terrorist networks. We are baffled by the lack of discrimination by the authorities”, it said.

Fire Family Foundation Raises More than $11,000 for 3-Year-Old’s Fight Against Cancer

first_img Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy First Heatwave Expected Next Week More than $11,000 was raised when hundreds of hungry patrons came out on Thursday, Dec. 4 to Robin’s Woodfire BBQ in Pasadena to support a 3-year-old girl battling cancer and her family.Ten fire departments, 15 engine houses and numerous firefighters arrived to the daylong fundraising event, which saw fire trucks filling the parking lot. Firefighters also crowded around take-out lines all in support of fellow L.A. County firefighter James von Harz and his young daughter Cecilia who has been battling cancer since she was 2-years-old.The fundraiser was organized by Fire Family Foundation, an L.A.-based non-profit. As the charitable hand of Firefighters First Credit Union, the Foundation serves firefighters, their families and all affected by fire devastation.Fire Family Foundation coordinated the fundraiser with Robin Salzer, owner of Robin’s who held a similar event for Cecilia earlier in the year. Salzer was particularly touched by the youngster’s story.“Children are the most priceless gift from God and as a father it broke my heart to read about Cecilia and her struggle to live, to live a lifetime that we often take for granted,” said Salzer.Money raised from the event will help Cecilia’s family purchase alternative medicine and supplements not covered by insurance. The little girl was diagnosed with stage 1 Wilms’ Tumor at the age of 2 and went through surgery to remove her right kidney along with a two pound tumor. She then endured 20 weeks of chemotherapy. Earlier this year, after six months of remission, the cancer returned to her lungs. She has since endured radiation to both lungs.Cecilia’s alternative medication is $1,500 a month, which allows the active girl a normal childhood with playtime, playdates and quality of life. Without this alternative medication, she would be constantly nauseous, sick and unable to sleep. With the funds raised at Robin’s, Fire Family Foundation will be able to pay for almost eight months of alternative medicine for Cecilia.“Fire Family Foundation is about offering a helping hand in times of need, and whether it be a firefighter or fire victim, we’re here to help, p. But we are particularly pleased to co-host this event with someone as community minded as Robin Salzer and to be joined by hundreds of firefighters in this cause,” said Mike Mastro, FFF Board Chair.Fire Family Foundation is still accepting donations on behalf of Cecilia; donors can visit www.firefamilyfoundation.org or contact Robin McCarthy, executive director at (323) 550-2208. Checks may be made payable to Fire Family Foundation, 815 Colorado Blvd., Los Angeles CA 90041 with the notation: Cecilia’s Day.About Fire Family FoundationFire Family responds when tragedy affects firefighters and fire victims. The charitable hand of the Firefighters First Credit Union, Fire Family Foundation offers immediate assistance to firefighters and their families, fire victims, fire departments, and charities. The Foundation believes that by coming together as a “Fire Family,” assistance can be provided to those impacted by fire.

During his tenure, he has established new colleges, academic and research centers and institutes in Biomedical Science, Cybersecurity and Information, Natural Resource Management and Water and Energy.“Dan’s contributions to UTPB will pay dividends to our university for decades to come. His leadership has been a critical part of our success and he will be deeply missed by the entire Falcon family. We take great pride in knowing that one of our own has been selected for this important role. We are confident that he will accomplish great things as he leads the University of South Carolina Aiken,” UTPB President Sandra Woodley said in a news release.Former UTPB President David Watts recruited him. Before coming to Odessa, Heimmermann was at Mississippi University for Women for two years. Before that, he was at UT Brownsville when it existed. He has been in higher education since 1994.Originally from Appleton, Wis., Heimmermann earned his undergraduate degrees in history and Spanish from the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. He earned a master’s in early modern history and a doctorate in French history, both from Marquette University in Milwaukee.“I had a love for history and when I was in graduate school I had the opportunity to teach as a teaching assistant and that’s really what drew me to continue for seven more years after undergraduate to pursue the master’s and the PhD in French history so I could teach,” Heimmermann said.He started at the University of North Alabama and was there for 13 years. Heimmermann met his wife, Claudia, there. She worked at the university, as well.The couple has a 14-year-old daughter, Lucie, and two dogs.“My first job was in Alabama in 1994 and I taught besides world civilization which is a general education course, I would teach upper level and graduate courses in European history, French history and the French Revolution, Napoleon and 18th century Renaissance, reformation things like that,” Heimmermann said.He then moved to Brownsville, Columbus, Miss., and to UTPB. The chancellor’s job is like that of a university president and there is a president that presides over the South Carolina system.“This will be a tough place to leave for a lot of reasons. One, I really enjoy working with the faculty and staff and Dr. Woodley here. I have a great job here so that’s going to be tough and it’s a job where, honestly, I know I’m appreciated which is important. The other thing is, personally, we have made some lifelong friends here …,” Heimmermann said.The good thing is that with technology they can be more in touch with people than ever.The Aiken campus has about 4,000 students, so it’s a little smaller than UTPB. But many of the things the university is doing, or plans to do, are aligned with what UTPB is doing in terms of developing engineering, cybersecurity, a business incubator and an advanced manufacturing center.“A lot of the things that we’re working on here they too are working on in South Carolina. From my point of view, a lot of the stuff that I’m interested in that we’ve been interested in here I’ll be able to continue there and hopefully offer some things. Here, in the last seven years, we’ve considerably expanded our engineering programs here and adding the three new programs, including master’s degrees,” Heimmermann said.“There are a lot of similarities with trajectories that for me was very appealing and a lot of support from the community which that’s been the great thing here. As I’ve reflected on my career here there are a lot of advantages here. Being part of the UT System can’t be overstated. (There are) few places could we have accomplished so much; I’m just talking about my little sliver of time here — seven years — without the support of the UT System. Three engineering programs, $60 million kinesiology building so the UT System and the support of the people of West Texas. That can’t be overstated either,” Heimmermann said.He added that the football program also started during his tenure.The South Carolina post will be Heimmermann’s first university presidency.“It will be a good, new experience; a first, which are exciting; exhilarating,” he said.The scenic location was an appeal for him.“From a family perspective, it’s got a lot of advantages just to be a little more proximate to her family and two sisters and her parents …,” he said.He added that he likes the fact that it’s part of the University of South Carolina System and it’s part of the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges.“It’s one of a handful of public schools that are recognized as a liberal arts school. I’m a liberal arts guy. That was really appealing,” Heimmermann said.He officially starts July 1, but there are already things planned for before he arrives such as a retreat at the end of June.Heimmermann has previously applied for positions in Florida and Louisiana. There were about 100 applicants for the position he obtained at Aiken.“It was very gratifying. Those odds are somewhat daunting, so I feel real fortunate and frankly it’s been no secret that I’ve applied, but I’ve done so really selectively because I’m really happy here, certainly family-wise and my job,” he said.“I figured if I was ever going to become a president, I had to shoot somewhat selectively just to see what happens,” he added.
