Pusarla Venkata Sindhu will celebrate her 23rd birthday, 21-19 victory over Spain’s Carolina Marin in the Malaysia Open quarter-finals on Friday is — Has Sindhu reached the pinnacle of her powers,and is she ready to shed the opprobrium of being a perennial runner-up and don the mantle of World champion It is something of an achievement that the precocious Sindhu broke into India’s Uber Cup squad in 2010 when aged just 15 Since then her career has consistently taken an upward curve starting with the Malaysian Open title in 2013 and followed by India’s first-ever bronze medal by a female player at the World Championships the same year with victories over illustrious names like China’s Wang Yihan and Wang Shixian There was to be another bronze at the 2014 Copenhagen Worlds but Sindhu narrowly missed a hat-trick of medals in 2015 Then at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro she strode imperiously into the final; and was only beaten at 21-15 in the third and deciding game of a memorable final by Marin who had also bagged the previous two World Championship titles File image of PV Sindhu Image courtesy: Twitter @BAI_Media The time appeared to be ripe for Sindhu to wear the world crown but after yet another brilliant run to the final of the 2017 event in Glasgow she came up a whisker short losing 22-20 to Japan’s Nozomi Okuhara in the third game of a summit clash that has been rated one of the greatest finals of all time Another silver medal to add to the Olympic ‘silverware’ of the previous year And then in November there was yet another heart-breaking loss in the finals of the Indian Nationals to Gopichand Academy stable-mate Saina Nehwal It would have been less than human if Sindhu were not to take this sequence of results to heart and try to work out in her mind just where she had gone wrong and exactly what she could do to turn things around She seemed hell-bent on making amends in the ongoing season For one thing she skipped the prestigious Uber Cup international team competition preferring to train for the tough season ahead She also ensured that her training was conducted in a different Gopichand Academy centre albeit in Hyderabad from the one being used by her nemesis Saina who had returned in 2017 to her original guru after spending three years under Vimal Kumar at the Prakash Padukone Badminton Academy in Bangalore The Malaysia Open a tournament she had won in 2013 was to provide the litmus test of whether Sindhu could vault that final hurdle She started hesitantly being stretched fully in the first game by Japanese left-hander Aya Ohori and having to save two game-points before pocketing the opener and then easing through the second game for a 26-24 21-15 win Her second round was a cakewalk – a 21-8 21-14 triumph over Malaysia’s highly over-matched Lee Ying Ying And then came the quarter-final against the Spanish left-hander who had beaten her to the Olympic gold The statistics were marginally unfavourable – she trailed 5-6 in 11 career meetings with Marin and had lost their most recent duel at the Singapore Open in April last year However Sindhu had won two of their three post-Rio Olympics meetings and no clear deduction was possible from this array of results In the event on Friday the manner of Sindhu’s victory at the Axiata Arena in suburban Kuala Lumpur allowed for two directly related conclusions – that the Indian has improved since her Rio loss nearly two years ago and Marin’s game has definitely deteriorated In a topsy-turvy peroration to the first game it was Sindhu who led 18-15 and then allowed Marin to reel off five straight points to go to 20-18 Sindhu then held her faltering nerve to claim the next four pointsand the opening stanza Sindhu was in full cry in the second game and should have piled on the pressure when she led 11-6 at the mid-game interval at which point Marin tripped while backpedalling and landed heavily on her posterior Instead she allowed the Spaniard to all but restore parity at 14-15 in yet another disheartening demonstration of end-game blues Her body language screamed nervousness even desperation; and it could be safely said that she was distinctly fortunate the match did not go into a decider Yes to allow Sindhu one merit point — she did show tactical acumen by breaking the resurgent Marin’s string of aces by mounting a Hawk-eye challenge on a line call that everyone in the stadium knew she could not win It achieved the Indian’s objective of breaking the Spaniard’s concentration; and Sindhu held on for dear life to break away to 19-15 and finally stumble across the finish line Marin recently admitted that she had achieved all that she had set out to do at the start of her career and that she was suffering from a lack of motivation On the strength of Sindhu’s performance against the two-time former World Champion on Friday it appears doubtful whether the No 3 seed can take in her stride reigning World No 1 and top seed Tai Tzu Ying of Chinese Taipei in Saturday’s semi-finals The Taiwanese ace was badminton’s equivalent of Muhammad Ali’s “float like a butterfly and sting like a bee” in a 21-15 21-15 demolition of Malaysia’s Goh Jin Wei thoroughly unperturbed even when she trailed 6-11 in the opening stanza Once Tai adjusted to the stadium drift and got her teeth into the match there was precious little that Goh could do to stem the tide even though the vociferous crowd did its level best to egg their girl on Sindhu has not beaten Tai in any of their last three outings and trails 3-8 in career head-to-heads against the 24-year-old Taiwanese almost exactly a year her senior in age Their winner will take on the victor of the other semi-final between fourth-seeded Ratchanok Intanon of Thailand and China’s eighth-seeded He Bingjiao who caused the biggest upset of the women’s singles draw by sidelining the No 2 seed from Japan Akane Yamaguchi by a 21-18 21-18 scoreline There were upsets galore in the men’s singles as well with top-seeded Viktor Axelsen of Denmark biting the dust against Malaysian veteran Lee Chong Wei by a runaway 17-21 9-21 margin and All England champion Shi Yuqi of China being brought to heel by Indonesia’s unseeded Tommy Sugiarto at 21-13 13-21 13-21 Kidambi Srikanth the No 4 seed however kept his appointed place in the semi-final with an effortless 21-18 21-14 triumph over French journeyman Brice Leverdez The Indian has the onerous task of taking on the red-hot Japanese left-hander Kento Momota who continued his giant-killing spree by making Chinese Taipei’s No 6 seed Chou Tien Chen look rather pedestrian in a 21-19 21-11 pummelling Srikanth has a losing 3-5 career record against Momota and has lost their last two meetings but can take some heart in the fact that their last encounter took place more than two years ago at the 2016 All England just before Momota was banned for a year by his country’s badminton association for indulging in illegal gambling The 24-year-old Japanese player has come back even fitter faster and with metronomic steadiness than he was at the time of his unfortunate ban and has a string of top-ten scalps in his satchel this year He will be looking to add Srikanth to a bag already overflowing with names like Axelsen Son Wan Ho and Chou Tien Chen And no astute betting man would denigrate his chances of doing exactly that By Alexandra Ulmer and Deisy Buitrago CARACAS (Reuters) – A major earthquake of magnitude 73 struck Venezuela’s eastern coast home to largely poor fishing communities on Tuesday afternoon shaking buildings as far away as Colombian capital Bogota and knocking power out in parts of Trinidad Venezuelan officials said there were no immediate reports of injuries and two sources at state oil company PDVSA told Reuters the OPEC member’s refineries and oil fields were operating normally PDVSA did not immediately comment But fretful Venezuelans with relatives close to the epicentre said they were struggling to contact their family members due to shaky phone lines And Venezuela is not in good shape to deal with a natural disaster It is already wrestling with a crippling economic crisis – medicine is running short hospitals are barely functioning and there are severe shortages of basics like chicken and milk The tremor – one of the country’s strongest ever – hit at 531 pm (2131 GMT) Along Venezuela’s picturesque palm tree-dotted northern coast residents said the long quake was terrifying and led people to dash into the streets "I had gotten into bed to watch the news on TV and my bed started to move as if it was made of water" said Elia Sanchez a doctor in Cumana the capital of the eastern state of Sucre that was the closest to the offshore epicentre "We had to go down nine floors it felt like it would never end" Rosymer Rodriguez also in Cumana said she could not see any significant damage but that people were still fearful "There are still people in the street There are people packing bags in case there are aftershocks" said Rodriguez The governor of Sucre told state television that so far there were no reports of deaths or major damage He called for calm "Do not fall victim to psychological terror messages about a tsunami and all that" said governor Edwin Rojas who belongs to President Nicolas Maduro’s Socialist Party The Information Ministry did not respond to a request for comment for additional information United States Geological Survey geophysicist Jessica Turner said the quake’s depth 765 miles (123 km) below the surface would have dampened some of the shaking "A 73 magnitude quake is going to cause some damage particularly as in this area structures are vulnerable The earth is able to absorb some of the energy but a 73 quake produces a lot of energy" she said by telephone BOGOTA TRINIDAD HIT The quake was felt in capital Caracas neighbouring Colombia and nearby island nations like Trinidad and Tobago and St Lucia to the west and north In Trinidad and Tobago there were initial reports of some cracks to buildings cars damaged when concrete debris fell on them and loss of electricity Colombia’s government said there were no reports of victims or damage but workers dashed out of high-rise blocks in capital Bogota "It was a moment of panic we thought the worst" said Jimena Valencia a 29-year-old administrator in the north of Bogota The US Pacific Tsunami Center cancelled an earlier warning of a possible tsunami along the coast near the epicentre some 190 kilometres (118 miles) from Cumana (Reporting by

staff and is generated by auto-feed The Republican investigation into Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of private email has begun to focus on whether she appropriately turned over all the emails that she sent or received about government business to the State Department "There are gaps of months and months and months" said South Carolina GOP Rep Trey Gowdy the chief congressional Benghazi investigator on CBS Face the Nation Sunday pointing specifically to an October 2011 trip to Libya when she was photographed using her Blackberry "And if you think to that iconic picture of her on a C-17 flying to Libya she has sunglasses on and she has her handheld device in her hand we have no e-mails from that day In fact we have no e-mails from that trip" Under Obama Administration policy officials are told to conduct their business principally on official email If they use private emails accounts they are instructed to forward emails that are federal records onto their federal accounts Clinton opted for a different approach by conducting all her business on private accounts and then selecting those that concerned federal business after she left office and sending them to the State Department Experts on federal email record-keeping say that how Clinton handled them is a meaty topic "There is an outstanding question and it is a legitimate question about whether she has now handed over all records pertaining to government business" says Jason R Baron a lawyer at Drinker Biddle and Reath and former director of litigation at the National Archives and Records Administration “For example in the case of an email that is mostly personal in nature but also contains a sentence or paragraph related to government business then that email is a government record appropriate for preservation at the State Department and should not continue to be withheld" US law gives a broad definition of what constitutes a federal record including “all recorded information regardless of form or characteristics made or received by a Federal agency under Federal law or in connection with the transaction of public business and preserved or appropriate for preservation by that agency or its legitimate successor as evidence of the organization functions policies decisions procedures operations or other activities of the United States Government or because of the informational value of data in them” Based on that law Baron says the timing of when Clinton turned over the emails could matter too "In my view Secretary Clinton and the State Department were out of compliance on the day she left office as federal records created on her private network had not been transferred and preserved in an official recordkeeping system as of that date" he says "It appears that she came into compliance only after the State Department requested a return of the governments records" Clinton left the State Department in February 2013 but finished handing over about 55000 pages of emails in only the past few months She has since called on the State Department to review those records to determine which are appropriate for release to the public a process that could take months Gowdy who says he wants “everything” related to Libya and Benghazi said Sunday that he had "lost confidence" in the State Department to determine what is public record and advocated for "a neutral detached arbiter" to decide Some outside experts in federal record-keeping practices agree that an outside review is needed "To be fair as a practical matter on a day-to-day basis individual employees do make decisions about whether a certain email will be put in a file or whether a certain document is a personal document" says Doug Cox a law professor at the City University of New York School "However the question of the record status of an entire archive of emails sent and received by someone who was the Secretary of State have to be treated differently and especially given the highly questionable if not illegal practice of sequestering federal records in a private email system even after leaving the position I really think there needs to be an independent review of the larger pool of emails perhaps both by the State Department and the Archivist" Even if the Administration doesnt set up an independent review Gowdy has done his part keeping the issue in the spotlight subpoenaing all Clinton emails related to the 2012 attacks on the US consulate in Benghazi over Democratic objections Robert Luskin a lawyer who deflected a congressional subpoena request for George W Bush political advisor Karl Rove under executive privilege concerns says that an investigation into the former Secretary’s personal email account would not be “unprecedented” “Mrs Clinton would always be amenable to a subpoena and the separation of powers/executive privilege issues depend upon the substance of what is sought not who has custody of it” Luskin told TIME “Obviously by using a personal email account she has complicated her life In the typical case lawyers for the administration and Congress would fight it out and she would more or less be a bystander Now she’s in the ring” No matter what happens the emails will continue to be used as a political cudgel as Clinton weighs a presidential bid After reports that Gowdy would attend a “Beyond Benghazi” fundraiser this month Maryland Democratic Rep Elijah Cummings said in a statement Monday that the select committee on Benghazi “appears” to have become a “surrogate for the Republican National Committee” Gowdy quickly canceled the appearance and his office told reporters that he was “unaware” of the organizers’ planned topic Republicans continued to keep the pressure on Michael Mukasey an Attorney General in the George W Bush Administration said Clinton’s latest actions reminded him of the Wile E Coyote cartoon character "There are people who think that the laws of physics dont apply to them" Mukasey told TIME "The coyote in the Road Runner cartoonshe keeps running after he goes over the cliff and he doesnt start to fall until he looks down and sees that hes over the cliff Its the ultimate existential animal" Nine sitting Cabinet Secretaries and the Attorney General told TIME through spokespersons last week that they use a government email account for official business Other Cabinet officials did not comment but Vice President Joe Biden’s office did "The Vice President’s emails like the President’s are subject to the Presidential Records Act" says a Biden spokesperson "In accordance with the Act the Vice President’s e-mails are preserved and maintained" With additional reporting by Zeke Miller/Washington Contact us at [email protected] Sofie Peeters whose documentary Femme de la Rue prompted a Belgian
