BCCI to oppose Decision Review System at ICC meet

first_imgBCCI secretary N Srinivasan will attend the ICC CEC meeting in Hong Kong starting on Sunday.A day before the world gangs up to pressurise the Indian cricket board to accept the contentious umpires’ decision review system (DRS), a top ranking official said on Saturday that India would oppose it again.The official said that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) would not succumb to the pressure when the International Cricket Council (ICC) chief executives’ committee (CEC) takes up the issue at the start of the five-day ICC annual conference on Sunday in Hong Kong.”We will oppose the DRS at the meeting. It so happens that we have a bit more influence in the ICC – and we are no more a [British] colony,” the official told Mail Today, referring to several foreigners who hold key positions in the Sharad Pawar-headed ICC. The BCCI has all along maintained that Hawkeye, which tracks the ball for leg-before wicket decisions, is not fool proof. “They [London-based Hawkeye officials] came to India and wanted us to take a leap of faith and accept the DRS; we said we won’t take the leap,” said the official.BCCI secretary N Srinivasan is attending the ICC CEC meeting on Sunday and Monday while president Shashank Manohar will be present at the ICC executive board conclave on Tuesday and Wednesday.The role of umpires will be reduced if the decision review system is made mandatory.DRS, which has been sporadically used worldwide since 2009, can’t be implemented until the boards of the two competing teams of a series agree to it. The BCCI opposed the system for India’s ongoing Test series in the West Indies as well as the series in England starting next month.Interestingly, Sachin Tendulkar is in DRS’s favour while captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni is not.advertisementThe rest of the nine ICC full members, however, have accepted the DRS. The BCCI official suspected that someone in the world body has a vested interest in implementing the DRS. “I have a feeling that someone in the ICC has a link with the company that provides the technology,” he said, and pointed out that the company hardly has any competition globally.The Clive Lloyd-headed ICC cricket committee had last month “unanimously” recommended that the DRS should be used not just in all Test matches, but in One- day Internationals and Twenty20 Internationals as well. Interestingly, the votaries included Gary Kirsten, who guided India to the World Cup triumph in April, and Ravi Shastri, who attended as a media representative.The DRS drastically lessens the role of the on-field umpires, especially with assistance from Hot Spot and Snickometer.It is one of the reasons that the BCCI cites while opposing it. “If you want to reduce the role of umpires, you might as well install a lamppost with red and green lights,” said the official sarcastically.The official said India would oppose the system until it becomes fool-proof. “We will have to navigate through these troubled waters,” he averred.Asked how long he expected the board to do that, he said: “Only time will tell.” Under the DRS, which was controversially implemented during the recent World Cup, each team has two unsuccessful opportunities to ask for a review of the decisions given by on- field umpires. The BCCI is convinced that this too is not fair. “It is a lottery,” he said.The cost of implementing the DRS has to be borne by the home country broadcasters, and this is another reason that the BCCI gives for not embracing the system.Using the DRS, including the Hot Spot and Snickometer aids, for one day cost about $55,000. Can smaller Test playing nations like Bangladesh afford to pay that kind of price? Hot spot also has a security problem in India. Since the technology used in this is perceived as a security threat, it is not allowed inside the country. “Last year, Hot Spot equipment came to India for the Champions League T20, but it couldn’t be used as the government didn’t allow it to come inside the country and it returned from the airport,” said a source.The ICC too faces a few impediments, like the existing broadcast contracts of its member countries, to overcome before it can enforce the DRS across the board. It will have to explore a common ground for the home broadcasters all 10 Test countries to move ahead. But the BCCI will have to be convinced first.last_img read more

FSL Deal with Navios Not Feasible

first_imgzoom After it terminated an earlier agreement to sell its shares to Navios Maritime Holdings, FSL Trust Management said that the move was made as the proposed transaction “would not be feasible.”The company, a trustee-manager of Singapore-based First Ship Lease Trust, signed a term sheet with Navios in April 2017 to sell 154.4 million shares in FSL Trust, representing around 24.2% of the total number of issued units in FSL Trust, for a total of USD 20 million.FSL Trust said that it was of the view that the proposed transaction would not be feasible and sought to negotiate terms with Navios.As no definitive structure was agreed to, nor definitive documentation executed, prior to the end of the exclusivity period granted under the term sheet, it was automatically terminated in accordance with the terms thereof.The company informed that the termination has no material financial impact on the group as the term sheet was non-binding and no definitive and binding agreement has been entered into between the parties in relation to the transaction.FSL said that it is and will be considering all options available, including any further proposals from Navios, in order to achieve refinancing and ensure “the long-term stability of FSL Trust amid the volatility and reduction in vessel values.”last_img read more

Administration switches off rule for thriftier light bulbs

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is scrapping some rules to make light bulbs more energy efficient, calling the upgrades too costly for consumers.President Donald Trump told reporters Wednesday that the expected saving from the more efficient bulbs “is not worth it.”The Energy Department’s move is a reversal in a years-long push to switch Americans to bulbs that use less electricity.Environmental groups and Democratic lawmakers say the administration’s latest regulation-cutting action is a mistake as the country tries to cut fossil-fuel use.An Energy Department statement says scrapping the efficiency upgrade gives the choice of lighting back to consumers.The Associated Press read more

No decision yet by Israel on Jenin mission UN official tells Security

“I told the Council that I had disappointing news in that the Israeli Cabinet did not take a decision today as we had been led to expect,” Kieran Prendergast, the Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs, told reporters after the 15-member security body met in closed-door consultations on the Middle East. Mr. Prendergast said a decision was expected shortly. “We are told that the Cabinet will be meeting at 8 tomorrow morning, Israel time, to take a decision, and that we can expect a letter from the Foreign Minister afterwards,” he said. “The Secretary-General’s objective remains to deploy the mission to the field as soon as possible so that it can complete the task assigned to it in Security Council resolution 1405, and meanwhile the team are continuing their preparations,” he stressed. read more

Ohio State womens volleyball hits the road looking to continue winning ways

Senior defensive specialist Julianne Mandolfo (5) celebrates a point during a match against Michigan Sept. 27 at St. John Arena. OSU won, 3-1.Credit: Mark Batke / Lantern photographerOnce in the midst of an eight-match losing streak, the Ohio State women’s volleyball team’s fortune has taken a turn for the better.The Buckeyes are fresh off two statement victories: a sweep of Indiana and a four-set win against then-No. 14 Purdue.While the team is still unranked, the Buckeyes will have to remain focused as they hit the road for matches against two ranked opponents this weekend.OSU is scheduled to face off against No. 11 Minnesota in Minneapolis at 8 p.m. Friday, before heading to Madison, Wis., for a date with No. 14 Wisconsin at 2 p.m. Sunday.Freshman setter Maggie Heim said the team has to remain focused and disciplined, especially on the road.“These are going to be two huge crowds,” she said. “So staying intent on what we need to get done, what we’re there for (will be important).”Both teams have topped OSU at home this season. The then-No.19 Badgers topped the Buckeyes 3-2 Oct. 11 in Columbus while No. 11 Minnesota swept OSU on its home court the following night. Those were also the first two losses of OSU’s eight-match losing streak.Senior outside hitter Kaitlyn Leary said it will be important to focus on the Golden Gophers first because OSU cannot afford to overlook any Big Ten team.“Minnesota is just a really good team, so we have to play hard,” she said. “(Last) weekend, I think we played well as a team together, so we’ll have to do that.”Leary added Wisconsin will be just as ready for the Buckeyes, since the teams have already played this season.“Obviously, we know more about them, they know more about us now,” she said. “Whatever the coaches set for our game plan, we need to follow that and just play together as a team.”Leary leads the Big Ten this season with 476 kills, followed by freshman middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe’s 225.Sandbothe was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week after tallying a combined 26 kills against Indiana and Purdue.“It’s a huge honor, to get Big Ten Freshman of the Week,” Sandbothe said. “It’s just really humbling, the fact that I have a big impact on this team.”The challenge facing OSU is finding a way to stop Minnesota senior middle blocker Tori Dixon, who is sixth in the Big Ten in average kills per set and is tied for third in blocks per set, if it wants to win Friday.“We’re going to try to get four hands on her every time,” senior defensive specialist Julianne Mandolfo said about Dixon. “She’s going to get her kills, but if we minimize them, then I think we put ourselves in a very good position to win the game.”No matter how many kills Dixon gets, the Buckeyes will have to turn around and face Wisconsin Sunday before making their way back to Columbus. OSU is scheduled to return home Nov. 22 for a match against No. 25 Illinois. read more

Sin taxes on alcohol and tobacco have cost the Treasury £31bn analysis finds

first_imgThe “tax gap” would be enough to fund a 1.5p cut in the basic rate of Income Tax, according to the report.Between 2010 and 2015 £13.9 billion was lost due to the illicit trade in cigarettes, with £5.8 billion being lost because of the black market in spirits.A further £3.5 billion was lost to the illicit trade in wine and £4.8 billion to diesel.The report states: “HMRC has clearly been unsuccessful at claiming these duties for some time and therefore it needs to take decisive action, not introduce policies that make it worse. It is unfair that higher taxes for ordinary families are often used to make up the shortfall.“The loss of £31.8 billion in revenue over a five year period could have funded a 1.5p cut in the basic rate of Income Tax. Not only would this have helped millions of ordinary families, but it would also have had a big impact on the jobs market, which is particularly important at this time.” Experts have warned that Philip Hammond, the Chancellor, is facing a £25 billion hole in the Government’s books as he prepares for this month’s Autumn Statement.The Institute for Fiscal Studies has said that ministers could be forced to extend austerity measures into the 2020s as a result of falling growth forecasts and tax receipts.John O’Connell, chief executive of the TaxPayers’ Alliance, said: “Our ludicrously complicated, punitive tax system not only hits hard-pressed families with crippling bills but also affects frontline services by depriving Treasury of revenue lost to the black market, all the while lining the pockets of those peddling dodgy tobacco, alcohol and diesel.”The revenue lost to the illicit trade could fund a modest but much needed tax cut for millions of families while preventing smugglers from profiting because of deeply regressive ‘sin taxes’ which hit the poorest hardest.”It is high time the Government offered struggling taxpayers a better deal instead of kowtowing to the self-appointed lifestyle police who remain oblivious to the cost of ever-rising duties on ordinary taxpayers.” Between 2010 and 2015, £13.9 billion was lost due to the illicit trade in cigarettesCredit: REUTERS Cigarettes HMRC has clearly been unsuccessful at claiming these duties for some time and… it needs to take decisive actionTaxpayers’ Alliance Sin taxes on alcohol and tobacco have cost the Treasury more than £31 billion, an analysis has disclosed amid calls for a reduction in the Autumn Statement.Around £31.6 billion of tax revenue has been lost because of the illicit market in spirits, beer, wine, cigarettes, rolling tobacco and diesel, according to the analysis of HMRC figures by the TaxPayers’ Alliance.The high taxes on alcohol and tobacco simply fuel a black market in the goods which means that HMRC loses money, the campaign group said.

Mayor Kevin Faulconer names David Nisleit as San Diegos next Chief of

first_img KUSI Newsroom February 1, 2018 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — David Nisleit, a three-decade veteran of the San Diego Police Department, was named today by Mayor Kevin Faulconer as the next chief of the city’s law enforcement agency.Nisleit, 52, currently one of the department’s assistant chiefs, was tapped to succeed Chief Shelley Zimmerman. Nisleit’s appointment must be approved by the full City Council at a yet-to-be scheduled meeting that Faulconer said he expects in the coming weeks.KUSI’s Sasha Foo spoke with Chief Nisleit shortly after Faulconer’s announcement. See what he had to say below.Zimmerman, who has served in the top post for four years and has been with the department for 35 years, is set to step down in March.“SDPD is poised to enter a new era of excellence,” Faulconer said in announcing Nisleit’s pending promotion during a late-morning City Hall news conference.Nisleit followed in his father’s footsteps as a longtime member of the SDPD and has served in the agency’s gang, robbery, narcotics, homicide, sex crimes, SWAT, internal affairs and special operations units.During the search for Zimmerman’s successor, city officials solicited citizen input at a half-dozen public hearings and received about 2,000 online surveys from residents.Nisleit “was overwhelmingly the consensus choice of both the community and professional panels” that offered guidance for the mayor’s decision, Faulconer said.Among his priorities is achieving full staffing in the police department by casting a wide net, but focusing on local candidates and continuing to bolster community policing programs, Nisleit said.“With the strength of staffing levels back, we will be able to improve our response times to all calls and continue to reduce our already low crime rate,” Nisleit said. “What I heard loud and clear during the community forums was the community wanted to see increased accountability, continued transparency and a commitment to community policing. I’m proud to say … they have been the core principals that the San Diego Police Department has been know for. It’s my responsibility as your chief to find unique ways to continue building upon these values.”There are currently more than 200 vacant positions in the department, which has not been fully staffed in over a decade.Faulconer, too, named achieving a full roster as one of his goals. He said that an approved new police contract with a competitive pay package, coupled with a national recruitment and marketing effort, will achieve this goal by 2020.Nisleit said he plans to build on the legacy of Zimmerman, whom he considers a mentor and friend.She said Nisleit “is an exceptional, proven leader who has given his all to our department and our city.”Councilman David Alvarez criticized the search process as relying on “secret” panels, a similar stance to that held by Alliance San Diego and the local American Civil Liberties Union branch.Alvarez said he would push for Nisleit to be specific about his plans for the department during the confirmation process.“The San Diego Police Department has fewer officers today than they did when the council confirmed the last police chief (Zimmerman). The failure of leadership has depleted the department,” Alvarez said. “The public needs to hear detailed plans from the chief on how he will address the police department’s staffing crisis. Unlike the secret panels established to conduct the search, the confirmation process for the new chief must be transparent.”A half-dozen finalists from across the country were interviewed by the panels. Their names will not be released to protect their privacy, a spokesman for Faulconer said.Nisleit has a master’s degree in business administration and management from the University of Redlands and completed the FBI’s National Academy. He is a member of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, president of the San Diego SWAT Officers Association and sits on the Regional Task Force on the Homeless, according to the mayor’s office.

TRAI to Check Telcos Call Tariffs to Verify Unjustified Gains in Call

first_imgIn view of increasing call drops in the country, the government has asked the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) to look into the voice tariffs of telcos to verify whether there are any unjustified gains to the telecom companies from call drops.The government also told the telecom operators “not to divert spectrum capacity towards profit-intensive data services at the cost of voice calls,” The Times of India reported.Chief executives of Bharti Airtel, Vodafone India, Idea and Reliance Communications on Monday said that the “spectrum and tower shortages” are the major reasons for the increasing call drops. They are also demanding a uniform tower policy.”We need a uniform national tower policy which can be implemented nationally and not just guidelines,” Idea Cellular MD Himanshu Kapania told IBN Live.When asked whether there will be an increase in call drops in future, Vodafone India MD & CEO Sunil Sood said, “If you don’t get a tower policy, yes, it will.”Hitting back at the reasons cited by the telcos, the government said on Tuesday that “these cannot be the basis for providing poor services.””Trai will examine all tariff plans and packages to see if telecom companies get incentives out of call drops. If that is the case, then we will see whether it is possible that such packages are not there,” said Rakesh Garg, secretary at the telecom ministry.The government has taken a serious note of the issue as call drops have been on the rise despite the telecom companies being warned many times.The government may also make compensation for call drops as “mandatory” for the telecom operators, Garg said.”Some (telecom) companies have a system to give a call free for every dropped call. This measure proves to be a disincentive for operators when they provide deficient services. We have requested Trai to see whether we can make this practice mandatory for all telecom service providers,” he said.last_img read more

Saudi king reshuffles cabinet

first_imgSaudi Arabia announced the second significant government change since the appointment of prince Mohammed bin Salman. File photo of prince Mohammed bin SalmanSaudi Arabia announced another cabinet reshuffle Saturday with a heavy focus on culture and religion, as the kingdom undergoes a major image rehaul.This is the second significant government change since the appointment of prince Mohammed bin Salman, son of the king, as heir to the region’s most powerful throne. Prince Mohammed serves as deputy prime minister under his father, King Salman.State news agency SPA announced King Salman had replaced the country’s labour, Islamic affairs and culture ministers.The kingdom also announced it had set up a royal commission for the holy city of Mecca, which is expected to welcome millions of Muslim pilgrims for the annual hajj in August, to be chaired by prince Mohammed.The powerful prince Mohammed has consolidated his grip on power since side-lining his cousin as crown prince last June.He has since spearheaded a string of policy changes in ultraconservative Saudi Arabia, including reinstating cinemas and allowing women to drive.He was also seen as the driving force behind the detention of 200 royals and businessmen at the Ritz Carlton in November in what the government said was a crackdown on corruption. Most have since been released, after reaching settlements with the state.On Friday, the crown prince earned a harsh warning from Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, the jihadist group’s Yemen branch, over his “sinful projects”, which AQAP said included a WWE wrestling event hosted by the kingdom in April.last_img read more

Napa mayor opposes opening crossing point in the area

first_imgAyia Napa Mayor Yiannis Karousos said Tuesday he opposes the opening of a crossing point to the north without a solution of the Cyprus problem.Speaking on Politis radio 107.6, Karousos said: “we cannot subsidize tourism in the occupied areas through the crossing points.”The mayor of the popular resort said the crossing points opened to facilitate people in a bid to reunify the island.“If one goes to Larnaca airport they will see hundreds of Turkish Cypriot taxis carrying tourists to the occupied areas,” he said.Karousos said this was his personal position and denied he had asked President Nicos Anastasiades to keep the Dherynia crossing closed.“We want Cyprus reunited so that Varosha opens, which is the capital of our area,” he said.Opening a crossing point in Dherynia, and one in the Lefka area, had been decided by Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci and Anastasiades at the onset of reunification negotiations in 2015.Significant work has been done in the area but more needs to be done before it was ready.On the northern side of the crossing point, the 2.8 kilometres of asphalting financed by the European Union had been completed and the wire fencing had been renewed.Back in November, NGO UniteCyprusNow said a tender to bring electricity to the area had been delayed.“There is no apparent work on constructing pavements or enabling telephone connections. In the 150-metre road in the buffer zone under UN’s responsibility, no apparent action has been taken, while the 300 metres on the southern side of the Dherynia road look largely ready,” UCN said. You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoTotal Battle – Online Strategy GameIf You’re PC User This Strategy Game Is A Must-Have!Total Battle – Online Strategy GameUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
