First it was about two West Indies’s players Keemo Paul and Darren Bravo getting injured. Then a major controversy erupted during the afternoon session, involving Joe Root and Gabriel.In a video circulating on social media, Root can be heard on the stump mic saying, “There is nothing wrong with being gay.”While it is unclear what Gabriel had told the two batsmen, Root said in the press conference after the day’s play, “Sometimes people say things on the field that they might regret, but they should stay on the field.”The Test started with a bit of controversy anyway when Jason Holder was banned by the ICC for over rate offence in the second Test, despite the match getting over in just three days.West Indies have already won the series after taking an unassailable 2-0 lead after the first two Tests.England declared their second innings at 361/5, setting West Indies the target of 485 runs.Also Read | Sanjay Manjrekar trolled for asking ICC to introspect on use of stump micsFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Concerns raised over manner in which LTTE suspects are arrested

The National Peace Council called on the Government to remain committed to its pledge to move forward in accordance with internationally accepted standards in a manner that will heal the wounds of the past and rebuild trust between the ethnic and religious communities and the state. The National Peace Council also called upon the TNA, as the main representatives of the Tamil people, to strengthen the confidence of the general population in its commitment to democracy by dissociating itself from the LTTE and its acts of violence and terror even as it continues to fight for the political rights of the Tamil polity in the country. (Colombo Gazette) “It is reported that there have been over 23 arrests in the past month. This has led to opposition parties to claim that national security is under threat by the LTTE and those who continue to support it. On the other hand, these arrests, and the manner in which they are taking place, are creating a sense of fear and foreboding amongst the people in the north,” the National Peace Council said in a statement today. In the aftermath of this incident there have been many arrests including former LTTE cadres who had failed to surrender to the Government at the end of the war nor gone through the required rehabilitation process. Concerns have been raised over the manner in which some LTTE suspects have been arrested by the security forces.The National Peace Council said that the discovery of a cache of weapons used by the LTTE in the north last month has led to security concerns that the LTTE is seeking to regroup. The National Peace Council is concerned about reports from the north which indicate that legal procedures have not been followed in the case of many of these arrests.“One of the most feared features of the previous Government was its utilization of security forces personnel to take away those it perceived to be threats, enemies or suspects in what became known as “white van abductions.” Although the new government recognized the flawed nature of the Prevention of Terrorism Act, which has lower protections for suspects, and pledged to review and repeal it, the law remains in force and security forces continue to use it. The present Government won two successive national elections last year on the votes of ethnic and religious minorities who had become the focus of Governmental impunity and virtually unanimously voted against the former government. The Government has also committed itself to a process of transitional justice in which the truths about the past will be ascertained, accountability for war crimes and human rights violations will be ensured which include the wrongs of all sides, and there will be institutional reforms so that the past does not recur,” the statement said. read more

The Buckeye celebrate after a 3-point basket in the first half of the game against Rutgers on Feb. 2. Ohio State won 76-62. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorThe Ohio State Board of Trustees will discuss Thursday integrating variable ticket pricing into men’s basketball, pricing individual games according to whether it’s an exhibition, non-conference, conference or premier opponent. This past season, Ohio State listed its premier opponents as Syracuse, Michigan State, Purdue and Wisconsin. The recommendation, as part of the finance committee meeting, also states that the arena will expand its four ticket price zones to six, establishing one in the lower level seating with an increase in pricing and upper level seating with either reduced pricing or remaining the same. For Zone 1 seating, the public can purchase tickets, depending on the level of opponent, from as low as $10 to $57. Season tickets will be $634. For the Zone 6 seating, tickets can be purchased from $5-14 depending on the opponent. The season ticket discounts will remain at approximately 12 percent off the total for the general public and 20 percent off the total price for Ohio State faculty and staff. Student pricing will remain at $9 for all opponents. The 2019-20 men’s basketball schedule has not yet been finalized. read more

Extended summer opening hours at museums hailed a success

first_imgAs the country’s museums and archaeological sites prepare to revert to a reduced winter timetable on Saturday, Culture Ministry officials yesterday hailed as a resounding success the enforcement of an extended timetable at most of the country’s sites over the summer.“The measure proved itself a success,” Culture Minister Costas Tasoulas said of the extended 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. timetable that was put into effect at 33 selected museums and archaeological sites across the country. “New initiatives that succeed should not only be continued but broadened,” the minister said, noting that another 13 sites would be added to the extended itinerary next summer.The extended hours appear to have had a positive impact on state revenues too, with the ministry’s Archaeological Receipts Fund recording an increase of 16.7 percent in takings in the period from January through September, reaching 39.5 million euros compared to 33.9 million in the same period last year.The increase followed a 23.5 percent rise in the number of visitors to Greek archaeological sites and museums in the first eight months of this year, with 8.94 million visitors this year compared to 7.24 million in the first nine months of 2013.Source: Kathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

The two companies announced that they would be collaborating Tuesday, but did not provide details on what the device will be. Instead, the companies are saying that more details will be “announced soon.””We value OnePlus’ reputation for balancing high-end quality at a great value,” said Dow Draper, Sprint’s chief commercial officer, in a press release. “This new smartphone gives Sprint customers another exciting option for accessing their True Mobile 5G experience.”OnePlus already sells a 5G version of its latest 7 Pro overseas, but only sells a 4G version of the phone in the US unlocked (for use on AT&T, Verizon or T-Mobile’s respective networks) as well as directly through T-Mobile.

How the Lyrics of a Prince Song Resulted in the Parental Advisory

first_imgOn the surface, they couldn’t be more different. One is a serious politician with concerns for the environment, the other a flamboyant star renowned for his decadent imagery. Yet Al Gore and Prince share a personal bond, and this connection changed the music industry forever.In 1984 Prince’s Purple Rain album was ringing in people’s ears. Also a hit movie, the release featured many talked-about tracks. “Darling Nikki” with its highly erotic content became a standout.Al Gore, former Vice President of the United States.This wasn’t a surprise to those familiar with the artist’s work. An interview from the Guardian in 2011 referred to him as “unsettlingly potent.” For the uninitiated however the explicit lyrics were an eye-opener, especially with children wanting to hear the album of the moment.Enter Tipper Gore, author, advocate and wife of then-Senator Al Gore, who’d bought Purple Rain for her daughter, then aged 11. As “Darling Nikki” played she couldn’t believe what she was hearing.Al and Tipper Gore’s wedding day, May 19, 1970, at the Washington National Cathedral.“The vulgar lyrics embarrassed both of us,” she said, quoted in a USA Today opinion piece from 2016. “At first, I was stunned, but then I got mad! Millions of Americans were buying Purple Rain with no idea what to expect.”An unsuspecting Prince gave rise to the Parents Music Resource Center (PMRC). The organization was founded by Tipper Gore, together with Susan Baker, Pam Howard, and Sally Nevius.Their husbands were all tied to government, so the women were branded the “Washington Wives.”Prince performing Purple Rain. Photo by Getty ImagesThe Center itself wasn’t in the mood to be patronized. Its mission was to have potentially offensive albums labeled. They even had their own nickname for those tracks deemed particularly bad – the “Filthy Fifteen.” This dubious Hall of Fame included entries by Madonna (Dress You Up), AC/DC (Let Me Put My Love In You) and Judas Priest (Eat Me Alive).As mentioned in a 2016 article for Spin, the group wanted “guidelines for regulating music deemed sexual, violent, or all-around uncouth, slapping warning labels on anything that fit the bill.” The measures were voluntary, but still unpopular.Tipper Gore, cofounder of the Parents Music Resource Center.In 1985 a hearing took place at the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee. The political establishment went head to head against the music business. And the latter wasn’t going down the censorship route without a fight.Frank Zappa was one of those who voiced objections. USA Today reported him as saying, “the complete list of PMRC demands reads like an instruction manual for some sinister kind of ‘toilet training program’ to house-break all composers and performers because of the lyrics of a few.”Frank Zappa. Photo by Helge Øverås CC BY 2.5This national conversation resulted in the now-ubiquitous Parental Advisory sticker placed on many albums. Some argue the move placed a stranglehold on the industry. USA Today remarked that “this wasn’t so voluntary…This was the U.S. government regulating media through the threat of legislation, despite the First Amendment’s prohibition against government control of content.”Big outlets such as Walmart began making creative demands on those wanting to display their stock on its shelves. There was a silver lining of sorts, in that the stickers encouraged sales, driven by excited listeners wanting to hear about sex, drugs, and crime.The irony was that Prince ended up embracing society’s conventions by finding religion. “I was anti-authoritarian but at the same time I was a loving tyrant,” he commented in the Guardian interview. “You can’t be both. I had to learn what authority was. That’s what the Bible teaches. The Bible is a study guide for social interaction.”Read another story from us: Final Days of Jimi Hendrix – Theories Surrounding the Early Demise of a Rock LegendHe went on to praise countries with strictly-defined rules, though it’s unclear how far those views went. Quite a turnaround perhaps for the man who once outraged the Gore household with racy lyrics and provocative dance routines.last_img read more

Race tight for governor of key Mexico border state

first_img 5 things to look for when selecting an ophthalmologist “It is now up to all candidates and political parties to abide by the decision expressed by citizens at the polls,” Pena Nieto said Monday, adding that the vote “confirms the strength and validity of our democracy, but also makes clear there are areas of opportunity to perfect the system.”The preliminary count from Baja California, with about 97 percent of the vote, showed National Action’s Francisco “Kiko” Vega ahead with a nearly 3 percentage point lead. But because of technical errors, that count “should not be considered reliable,” said election council spokeswoman Helga Casanova. The more thorough official count will begin Wednesday and conclude Sunday.Vega, who ran in a coalition with the leftist Democratic Revolution Party, had earlier claimed victory, as did the PRI’s candidate, Fernando Castro Trenti.Baja California is especially important to National Action, which has held the governorship since 1989, when its victory was the first recognized opposition win in Mexico’s modern history _ a democratic milepost for a country dominated by Pena Nieto’s Institutional Revolutionary Party, the PRI, from 1929 to 2000. The cat’s campaign managers _ his owners _ asserted in a statement that his real number of votes may have been 8 percent or more of the total, because many precincts also appear to have listed votes for the cat as “void,” a column that included about 5,400 more votes, rather than “unregistered.” That would have placed the black-and-white feline in fourth place in the race, ahead of six other candidates.Hundreds of voters sent photos of their ballots to the cat’s web site, showing their voting cards marked “Morris” and “Morris The Cat.”(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Elections were also held Sunday for state legislators and mayorships in 13 other states after violence-marred campaigns. At least nine candidates, party officials or their family members were killed and others reported being kidnapped or shot at in the runup to the vote.A young political activist was shot to death on election day in the Gulf coast state of Veracruz and Camacho claimed that he was a PRI supporter.The causes of most of the attacks are still uncertain. Some fear that drug gangs are asserting their power. Others fear that candidates are being targeted by their rivals.In local races, the PRI appeared to be winning the mayorship of the border city of Tijuana, while National Action was ahead in Mexicali, the Baja California state capital. Further east along the border, National Action was ahead in the cities of Nuevo Laredo and Matamoros.To the south, National Action led in the colonial city of Oaxaca, while the PRI claimed to have won the mayorship of the resort city of Cancun.In the Veracruz state capital of Xalapa, Morris _ a cat whose owners ran him as a write-in candidate for mayor to illustrate disgust with the country’s politicians _ may have won several thousand votes. While electoral authorities simply list write-in votes in a column labeled “unregistered,” and don’t break down who they were for, there were about 3,400 votes in the column by early Monday. That was about 3.5 percent of the votes counted up to that point. No other city in the state showed anywhere near that level of unregistered votes. Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober 3 international destinations to visit in 2019 Sponsored Stories Top Stories Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement MEXICO CITY (AP) – President Enrique Pena Nieto sought to calm tensions Monday over the still-undecided election for governor of the key Mexican border state of Baja California after both sides claimed victory and authorities said mistakes were made in preliminary vote counts.Complaints over the election in Baja and other states have led the conservative National Action Party to suggest it could pull out of an agreement known as the Pact for Mexico that has become a centerpiece of Pena Nieto’s administration. New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Comments   Share   National Action lost the presidency itself to the PRI last year, but its leaders joined other major parties in signing the pact to cooperate with Pena Nieto in passing education and telecommunications reform laws. Important challenges remain in tax and energy reform.But National Action officials allege the PRI is returning to its strong-arm tactics of the past, undermining their ability to cooperate.“We are seeing two realities,” National Action leader Gustavo Madero said.“The Pact for Mexico is very civilized, very advanced policy, but on the other hand, when there are elections, it’s back to acting like the 1970s or 80s,” Madero said, referring to an era when the PRI ruled through vote fraud and handouts.Pena Nieto urged continuing support for the pact, saying his government is committed to “continue the dialogue and agreements with all political forces to achieve the reforms needed to consolidate Mexico’s democracy.”PRI leader Cesar Camacho brushed off criticisms of Sunday’s election, saying the voting in most states appeared to be fair. He alleged that some voters were being intimidated in National Action-led Baja California and that someone had thrown a gasoline bomb at the home of a PRI municipal candidate.

With merger complete bank focuses on customer

first_imgBy Margaret SmallAMID THE gentle hum of the Bank of Cyprus IT centre on the outskirts of Nicosia, hundreds of bank workers quietly completed a milestone in the history of the lender last weekend when the full integration of now-defunct Laiki bank was completed.On June 8, and seven hours ahead of schedule, the bank completed a three-day round the clock operation of migrating more than a million clients into Bank of Cyprus systems, effectively consigning Laiki, once the island’s second-largest bank, to the annals of history.“This was the first real huge project that the ‘new’ Bank of Cyprus was engaged in. We couldn’t accept failure,” said Aristos Stylianou, chief operations officer at Bank of Cyprus.Aristos Stylianou, chief operations officer at Bank of CyprusUnder terms of a 10 billion euro bailout package extended to Cyprus, Bank of Cyprus was forced to assume assets of Laiki in March 2013, and plug the gap in its own capital shortfalls by seizing customer deposits.From inception and until completion, the three million euro migration process involving an infrastructure upgrade and 60,000 hours of internal testing started in September.“We are talking about 1.1 million clients and accounts and collaterals which had to be transferred. It may not be so big in comparison to Europe, but for Cyprus it was a huge project, the two (bank) components were almost equal,” said Philippos Leandrou, manager of information technology services at Bank of Cyprus.“Normally a project of this magnitude takes between 18 and 24 months,” said Leandrou, whose unit was also instrumental in simultaneously keeping up with ever changing capital controls introduced to prevent a bank run a year ago and calculating the ‘haircut’ on clients’ deposits to keep the bank afloat.In a market where Bank of Cyprus and Laiki were almost head-to-head, the integration means a 70 to 75 per cent increase in Bank of Cyprus volumes.When banks reopened after a long holiday weekend on June 10, systems were totally integrated.“On Friday we started the real thing. We had to do the backups, we had to do the end of day for Laiki because it was a historical event,” said Stylianou.“We had to close all the Laiki accounts, transfer all the balances, do all the reconciliations to make sure we hadn’t lost money on the transfers and we had to do Bank of Cyprus end of day, absorbing all the information, close Laiki and work on the new Bank of Cyprus consolidated programmes,” he said.Former Laiki clients have been given new bank accounts, and customers who were clients of both will be given the option of merging accounts or loans. The replacement of credit cards will be a gradual process over coming months.With the migration behind them, the bank will now shift its focus back to where it should have been before sidelined by the March 2013 events, to the customer.“We had been preoccupied in getting the migration going, but now we have completed this the focus will shift on how we can offer better and uninterrupted support for customers,” Stylianou said.“We owe it to the customers of both banks who have suffered. The bank needed to give out some good signals that we are here, up and running, and ready to take a challenge,” Stylianou said, who lauded the ‘absolute dedication’ of bank staff during the changover.“They worked over a long holiday weekend. I didn’t hear one single complaint,” he said.One of his tasks in a previous post was overseeing the swift removal of Laiki Bank signs less than two months after it was foisted on Bank of Cyprus.“Sometimes the shock treatment is good because it helps people look forward, we needed closure,” he said.Purged of former senior executives and now run by ex-RBS banker John Hourican, the bank was briefly under the control of the Central Bank. Several wealthy Russians whose cash was converted to equity now sit on its board.After the upheaval of the past year and the major transition project behind them, senior executives said they felt the bank was turning a corner. At bank headquarters at Ayia Paraskevi, there is little to display the trauma of the March 2013 events.“I truly believe Cypriots have an ability of not looking back, but looking forward,” said Charis Pouangare, head of BOC’s retail and SME division. “It was a big hit for both banks, our customers and the broader public, but we don’t look back. We haven’t seen people in the streets. The only thing we are focussing on is how to solve the problem, and move forward.”A Bank of Cyprus veteran, Stylianou reminisces how his ground-floor office at headquarters turned into a ‘war room’ at the height of the crisis last year.“I don’t remember when we left. I was virtually living in here,” said Stylianou, appointed to his present post in December 2013. “Looking back at what was then and what is now, it’s a miracle.”You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoKelley Blue BookYou Won’t Believe How Affordable These Ford Car Models AreKelley Blue BookUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
