Why BCCI sacked Mohinder Amarnath?

first_imgTipped as the next chief selector till recently, formercricketer Mohinder Amarnath instead got the boot as the Board of Control forCricket in India (BCCI) on Thursday removed him as selector only after one yearof his job. Insiders said Amarnath paid the price for his anti-BCCIslant. He was sacked for his outspoken views. According to sources, BCCI wasnot comfortable with him as a selector so there was no question of hisescalation as the chairman of the selection committee. Amarnath, who celebrated his 62nd birthday earlier thisweek, had advocated removing Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni after the Testdebacle in Australia. In fact, Amarnath did not enjoy support within the northzone, which he represented. According to sources in north zone, he would spendtoo much time in Goa. A member of the World Cup winning team in 1983, Amarnath wasnoted for his conflicts with the Indian cricketing political establishment. Hehad once called the selectors a bunch of jokers??, which often resulted in hisexclusion from the Indian team.last_img read more

Niki Lauda, F1 Great and Aviation Entrepreneur, Dies at 70

first_imgBERLIN (AP) — Formula One great Niki Lauda, who won two of his world titles after a horrific crash that left him with serious burns and went on to become a prominent figure in the aviation industry, has died. He was 70.Lauda’s family issued a statement saying the three-time world champion “passed away peacefully” on Monday, the Austria Press Agency reported.Walter Klepetko, a doctor who performed a lung transplant on Lauda last year, said Tuesday: “Niki Lauda has died. I have to confirm that.”“His unique successes as a sportsman and entrepreneur are and remain unforgettable,” the family statement said. “His tireless drive, his straightforwardness and his courage remain an example and standard for us all. Away from the public gaze he was a loving and caring husband, father and grandfather. We will miss him very much.”Lauda won the F1 drivers’ championship in 1975 and 1977 with Ferrari and again in 1984 with McLaren.File – In this Friday, Nov. 10, 2017 file photo, former Austrian Formula One driver Niki Lauda stands in the Mercedes pit during the first free practice at the Interlagos race track in Sao Paulo, Brazil. (AP Photo/Nelson Antoine)In 1976, he was badly burned when he crashed during the German Grand Prix, but he made an astonishingly fast return to racing just six weeks later.Lauda remained closely involved with the F1 circuit after retiring as a driver in 1985, and in recent years served as the non-executive chairman of the Mercedes team.Formula One posted a message from its official Twitter account to acknowledge Lauda’s contribution to the sport.“Rest in peace Niki Lauda. Forever carried in our hearts, forever immortalized in our history,” the post said. “The motorsport community today mourns the devastating loss of a true legend.”Born on Feb. 22, 1949 into a wealthy Vienna family, Nikolaus Andreas Lauda was expected to follow his father into the paper-manufacturing industry, but instead concentrated his business talents and determination on his dreams of becoming a racing driver.Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said “Niki, we will miss you.”“The whole country and the motor sports world are mourning a really great Austrian,” Kurz wrote on Twitter.Austrian President Alexander Van der Bellen paid tribute to Lauda as “an idol and an ambitious fighter who never gave up.”Lauda financed his early career with the help of a string of loans, working his way through the ranks of Formula 3 and Formula 2. He made his Formula 1 debut for the March team at the 1971 Austrian Grand Prix and picked up his first points in 1973 with a fifth-place finish for BRM in Belgium.Lauda joined Ferrari in ’74, winning a Grand Prix for the first time that year in Spain. He won his first drivers’ title with five victories the following season.Facing tough competition from McLaren’s James Hunt — their rivalry featured in the Ron Howard-directed movie Rush — Lauda appeared on course to defend his title in 1976 when he crashed at the Nuerburgring during the German Grand Prix. Several drivers stopped to help pull him from the burning car, but the accident would scar him for life. The baseball cap Lauda almost always wore in public became a personal trademark.“The main damage, I think to myself, was lung damage from inhaling all the flames and fumes while I was sitting in the car for about 50 seconds,” he recalled nearly a decade later. “It was something like 800 degrees.”Lauda fell into a coma for a time. He said that “for three or four days it was touch and go.”FILE – In this Friday, January 23, 1977 file photo Austria’s Niki Lauda, driving for Ferrari during a pit stop at the Grand Prix of Brazil. (AP Photo, File)“Then my lungs recovered and I got my skin grafts done, then basically there was nothing left,” he added. “I was really lucky in a way that I didn’t do any (other) damage to myself. So the real question was then will I be able to drive again, because certainly it was not easy to come back after a race like that.”Lauda made his comeback just six weeks after the crash, finishing fourth at Monza after overcoming his initial fears.He recalled “shaking with fear” as he changed into second gear on the first day of practice and thinking, “I can’t drive.”The next day, Lauda said he “started very slowly trying to get all the feelings back, especially the confidence that I’m capable of driving these cars again.” The result, he said, boosted his confidence and after four or five races “I had basically overcome the problem of having an accident and everything went back to normal.”He won his second championship in 1977 before switching to Brabham and then retiring in 1979 to concentrate on setting up his airline, Lauda Air, declaring that he “didn’t want to drive around in circles anymore.”Lauda came out of retirement in 1982 after a big-money offer from McLaren, reportedly about $3 million a year.FILE – In this Friday, Feb. 20, 2015 file photo former Austrian Formula One driver Niki Lauda is pictured through a glass window, during the 2015 Formula One testing, at the Barcelona Catalunya racetrack in Montmelo, Spain.

He retired for good the following year, saying he needed more time to devote to his airline business.Initially a charter airline, Lauda Air expanded in the 1980s to offer flights to Asia and Australia. In May 1991, a Lauda Air Boeing 767 crashed in Thailand after one of its engine thrust reversers accidentally deployed during a climb, killing all 213 passengers and 10 crew.In 1997, longtime rival Austrian Airlines took a minority stake and in 2000, with the company making losses, Lauda resigned as board chairman after an external audit criticized a lack of internal financial control over business conducted in foreign currency. Austrian Airlines later took full control.Lauda founded a new airline, Niki, in 2003. Germany’s Air Berlin took a minority stake and later full control of that airline, which Lauda bought back in early 2018.He partnered with budget carrier Ryanair on Niki’s successor, LaudaMotion.FILE – In this Thursday May 16, 1996 file photo defending champion Michael Schumacher of Germany, left, chats with Ferrari consultant Niki Lauda during the practice session for the Monaco F1 Grand Prix in the principality.

He often backed Hamilton in public and provided advice and counsel to the British driver.Lauda also intervened as a Mercedes mediator when Hamilton and his former Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg feuded, argued and traded barbs as they fought for the title between 2014-16Lauda twice underwent kidney transplants, receiving an organ donated by his brother in 1997 and, when that stopped functioning well, a kidney donated by his girlfriend in 2005.In August 2018, he underwent a lung transplant that the Vienna General Hospital said was made necessary by a “serious lung illness.” It didn’t give details.Lauda is survived by his second wife, Birgit, and their twin children Max and Mia.

Rafa Benitez eyeing utility players for Newcastle over ‘big names’

first_imgNewcastle United manager Rafa Benitez has said the club must “wheel and deal” in the current transfer market as they chase realistic targets ahead of the new Premier League season.The Magpies have so far re-signed Kenedy on loan from Chelsea, South Korea captain Ki Sung-Yueng on a free transfer after he left Swansea City and Slovakia goalkeeper Martin Dubravka for an undisclosed fee from Sparta Prague.Benitez, who led Newcastle to 10th-place finish on their return to the top flight last term, said he was doing everything to strengthen the squad but must operate on a tight budget.”Unfortunately it’s what we have to do,” Benitez told Sky Sports on Tuesday. “We have to wheel and deal, that is the way for us. And then we try to continue doing the right things.”We are trying to sign a characteristic of players, it’s not just names, big names, because they will be too expensive for us, but we are trying to sign players that can do a job for the team.”As soon as the price goes a little bit higher, I know that we cannot buy them, so we have to be realistic with our budget, and then maybe sell some players and buy some players.”British media reports have linked Stoke City with Newcastle winger Matt Ritchie but Benitez confirmed the club are not looking to sell the player.”We are in the same position as we were last year. He’s our player, we’re happy with him and we don’t want to sell him,” the Spaniard added.advertisement”To do a move, too many things have to happen at the same time. I was talking with him this morning, I don’t see any change with the situation.”Newcastle kick off their league campaign at home to Tottenham Hotspur on August 11.last_img read more

Arsenal braced as Manchester City prepare final push for Alexis Sánchez

first_imgShare via Email Liverpool agree £40m Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain deal and pursue Thomas Lemar Share on LinkedIn Topics Arsenal Share on Facebook Transfer window Share on Pinterest Share on Messenger Pep Guardiola worked with Sánchez at Barcelona during the 2011-12 season and he has made it plain to the City hierarchy that he wants a reunion with him. They are keen to oblige. Raheem Sterling, the City forward, was mentioned on Tuesday as a possible makeweight in the deal but that will not happen. Sánchez is in Chile, preparing for his country’s World Cup qualifier against Paraguay on Thursday night. Wenger has agreed to let Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain join Liverpool for £40m while he will try to move out Lucas Pérez and Joel Campbell on deadline day. The latter does not want another loan but he might have to accept such a move. Shkodran Mustafi is set to stay at Arsenal, after talks over a possible move to Internazionale broke down.A move for Jean Michaël Seri, the €40m-rated Ivory Coast international who saw a proposed move to Barcelona collapse last week, is now not expected to materialise despite Wenger being keen to sign a long-term replacement for Santi Cazorla. Arsenal will go into transfer deadline day on tenterhooks over Alexis Sánchez, with Manchester City hopeful that an improved bid will persuade the London club to sell their star player.Arsenal have softened their stance slightly over Sánchez in the past 24 hours or so and City feel that they have been given some encouragement in their summer-long pursuit of the striker. But it would still take a huge offer to get the deal over the line and, more significantly, Arsenal would have to bring in a replacement player, which promises to be complicated. Serge Aurier given Home Office clearance to sign for Tottenham Share on Twitter news Read more Read more Manchester City They have an interest in Monaco’s left-sided attacker Thomas Lemar, for whom they have made three unsuccessful bids this summer – the most expensive of which was worth €50m. Last Thursday, Arsène Wenger described the deal as being “dead” because Monaco had “closed the door”. If Arsenal could somehow prise it open and land Lemar, the 21-year-old France international who is also wanted by Liverpool, they could then be receptive to City’s overtures for Sánchez – who has one season left on his contract and wants to go to the Etihad Stadium.Monaco have been steadfast in their refusal to do business over Lemar and it could be that Arsenal have to stretch themselves to something around €80m simply to make them consider the sale.City intend to make a persuasive pitch for Sánchez, having seen an opening offer of £50m rejected on Tuesday. It is likely to take £70m or more to locate Arsenal’s tipping point on Sánchez but, as City have often proved, they have the financial means to break through any impasse. Significantly, after Tuesday’s negotiations, they believe that there is a tipping point. Alexis Sánchez Share on WhatsApp Reuse this contentlast_img read more

Woman who accuses me of sex assault not my type says Trump

first_imgWashington DC: President Donald Trump said Monday that a New York-based advice columnist who has accused him of sexually assaulting her in a New York City department store in the mid-1990s is not his “type.” “I’ll say it with great respect: Number one, she’s not my type. Number two, it never happened,” Trump told The Hill in an interview at the White House. Writer E Jean Carroll has claimed that a friendly encounter with Trump at Bergdorf Goodman in 1995 or 1996 turned violent when the real estate mogul pushed her up against a dressing room wall, unzipped his pants and forced himself on her. Also Read – Merkel warns UK Brexit deal ‘unlikely’ without compromise: LondonTrump told The Hill that Carroll is “totally lying” about the accusation, which he also denied earlier. “I know nothing about this woman. I know nothing about her,” he said. “She is it’s just a terrible thing that people can make statements like that.” The allegation against Trump is included in Carroll’s upcoming book about the “hideous men” the Elle magazine columnist says she has encountered throughout her life. Carroll told CNN’s Anderson Cooper later Monday that she’s glad Trump doesn’t consider her his type. Also Read – India, China should jointly uphold peace and stability, resolve disputes through dialogues: Chinese ambassador”I love that,” she said. “I’m so glad I am not his type.” Carroll said there were no attendants in the dressing room area at the time of the alleged assault and she did not file a report with the New York Police Department. “I wanted to forget it,” she said. “I thought A, my fault. B, I was stupid. C, I didn’t think of it … as rape. I thought of it as a violent incident. I thought of it as a fight.” During the 2016 presidential campaign, more than a dozen women accused Trump of sexual misconduct in earlier years. Trump has denied the allegations and said the women are lying. The “not my type” remark isn’t the first time Trump has disparaged an accuser.last_img read more

UN nuclear watchdog agency chief urges controls over whole fuel cycle

Speaking before the UN’s General Assembly, IAEA Director General Mohamed ElBaradei also said the nuclear activities of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) underscored the urgent need to establish a legally binding universal ban on nuclear testing through the early entry into force of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT). The situation also called for a negotiated solution through the resumption of dialogue between all parties so as to ensure that all of the DPRK’s nuclear activities are for peaceful purposes while addressing the country’s security concerns, he said.Mr. ElBaradei also voiced “serious concern” about the Agency’s current inability to confirm the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear programme.The IAEA is commemorating its fiftieth anniversary this year, a time, he noted, of renewed interest in nuclear power because of growing energy needs, availability and the cost of other energy sources, as well the quest for energy independence, rising environmental and proliferation concerns and technological advances.There were now 442 nuclear power reactors operating in 30 countries – most in North America and Western Europe – supplying about 16 per cent of the world’s electricity.But Mr. ElBaradei said that the recent expansions have been primarily in Asia and Eastern Europe; of 28 reactors now under construction, 16 are in developing countries. Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries consume electricity at a rate roughly 100 times that of the world’s least developed countries, but this gap will close as developing countries grow.To assert international control of the nuclear fuel cycle the IAEA will first have to establish mechanisms to oversee the acquisition of all nuclear reactors and their fuel supply, Mr ElBaradei said. The second step would require limiting future enrichment and reprocessing to multilateral operations, he added.While noting the Agency’s critical role in verifying the peaceful use of nuclear power, he said the IAEA was also wanted to play a significant role in sharing the benefits of nuclear energy for development.Because the sophisticated technology of nuclear power required a correspondingly sophisticated infrastructure, it may not be the choice for all countries, he noted. But for those who chose to make it part of their energy mix, the Agency could do much to make the option accessible, affordable, safe and secure, he said.Much of the Agency’s scientific work is now focused on the transfer of peaceful nuclear technology in the fields of health, agriculture, industry, water management and preservation of the environment, working to build up technical capacities in ways that support national and regional development priorities, he told the General Assembly.The Agency also works to help States to implement strengthened regimes of nuclear security through training programmes, supply of equipment and assistance in protecting nuclear locations.

Amtrak to introduce bag fees for passengers who exceed limits for carryon

Amtrak to introduce bag fees for passengers who exceed limits for carry-on, personal items by The Associated Press Posted Sep 30, 2015 6:49 am MDT Last Updated Sep 30, 2015 at 1:04 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Amtrak is boarding a baggage fee bandwagon that has generated billions in revenue for the airline industry.The passenger train operator will start on Thursday charging $20 to passengers who exceed limits for carry-on and personal items. Amtrak spokesman Marc Magliari said the fees will help enforce the company’s established polices, preserve space on crowded trains and reduce safety concerns created by items that are too heavy.Customers are allowed to bring for free two personal items weighing up to 25 pounds and two carry-on bags weighing no more than 50 pounds each. Personal items might include things like a backpack, laptop, purse or other small bags. Passengers with children under the age of 2 also can bring onboard an additional item like a stroller or diaper bag.The fee applies to each item above those limits.U.S. airlines started introducing bag fees in 2008 and now charge a standard fee of $25 for the first checked suitcase. Those fees generated $1.6 billion for the airlines in the first quarter of this year.But the airline charges also are more extensive than what Amtrak plans, and Magliari said the train operator didn’t start its fees to make more money.“It is simply a space and safety initiative,” he said.He said the fee was aimed at a small percentage of the company’s 31 million passengers who exceed limits for what they can bring onboard for free. Passengers can avoid the fee by checking their bags through to the final destination, if that service is available on their train.

Turkey demands resolution of eight officers issue again

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram With Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras scheduled to visit Ankara and Istanbul on 5 and 6 February respectively, Turkey’s National Security Council issued a statement that they will continue to pursue people accused of taking part in the 2016 failed coup attempt against President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.The announcement includes the eight servicemen Greek courts have repeatedly refused to extradite following numerous requests from Ankara to hand them over saying it is “unacceptable” that some countries are refraining from extraditing terror group members and are instead harbouring them. The prosecuted men fled to Greece in July 2016, arguing they would not receive a fair trial in Turkey and may be subjected to torture and inhumane treatment.The Council’s statement also warned that Ankara will “monitor closely developments in Cyprus, the Eastern Mediterranean, the Aegean and the Black Sea, and take action to protect its rights”.Mr Tsipras will be accompanied to Turkey by Alternate Economy Minister Stergios Pitsiorlas and Alternate Foreign Minister Giorgos Katrougalos. On 5 February, the Greek PM will hold a joint press conference with Mr Erdogan, followed by a dinner. Mr Tsipras will be meeting with Ecumenical Patriarch Vartholomaios the next day in Istanbul.last_img read more

We werent good enough – West Ham United Cresswell

first_imgWest Ham United’s Aaron Cresswell has said the team weren’t good enough in their 1-0 home defeat to Premier League new boys, Wolverhampton Wanderers.The Hammers suffered a disappointing home loss to Espírito Santo’s side courtesy of a late strike from Adama Traore and Cresswell believes they weren’t good enough.Speaking candidly, Cresswell was brutally honest in his assessment of the home side’s display, which leaves them without a point and bottom of the Premier League going into the September international break.“In the first half, we let ourselves as it wasn’t good enough, it’s as simple as that,” he told the club’s official website. “In the second half, we played a little bit better, but the way we conceded the goal in the last minute just wasn’t good enough.declan rice, england, West ham UnitedReport: England’s Rice gets death threats George Patchias – September 9, 2019 England International Declan Rice has received death threats.Rice a one time Ireland International, switched allegiances only this year. The West Ham United man played for…“You just can’t make these mistakes as you get punished and that’s what happened. It’s not good enough at this level and I felt the whole 90 minutes was not good enough. On another day, we would have taken one of the chances we had, but we didn’t and it wasn’t to be.”“Of course, it’s a big worry, there’s no hiding that. Four defeats, ten goals conceded, it’s not good enough, simple as that, and we’ve got to get back and stick together, work hard on the training ground, put what we’ve done wrong, right, and concentrate on the next game.”“I wouldn’t say our confidence is high as we’ve lost four games, conceded ten goals and scored two. All we can do now is stick together and put things right. We’ve got enough character to do that.”last_img read more
