Heart attack symptoms

first_imgSymptoms of a possible heart attack include chest pain and pain that radiates down the shoulder and arm. Some people (the elderly, people with diabetes, and women) may have little or no chest pain. Or, they may experience unusual symptoms (shortness of breath, fatigue, weakness).Women are more likely than men to have symptoms of nausea, vomiting, back or jaw pain, and shortness of breath with chest pain.Review Date:8/14/2011Reviewed By:Linda J.

Brad Haddin to coach next generation in Australia

first_imgFormer Australia wicketkeeper Brad Haddin will move into coaching to pass on his knowledge to the next generation of local cricketers, coach Darren Lehmann has said.The 37-year-old Haddin retired last week after keeping wickets in 66 tests, scoring 3,266 runs at an average of 32.98 and taking 262 catches.”We can’t afford to lose those blokes to the game,” Lehmann told Adelaide radio station 5AA. We need him to pass on the knowledge to the next generation which will stand them in good stead.””He’ll do some work coaching-wise with New South Wales, and we’re going to get him involved with the (Under) 19s and (Under) 17s Australian programs, and I might even be able to take him away with (the Australian men’s team) occasionally.”It’s a great stage for him to move forward with the next stage of his life and career.”We think he’s a really important part of what we started and we love how he goes about it and what he does.”Haddin follows former captain Michael Clarke, all-rounder Shane Watson and opening batsman Chris Rogers into retirement after the 3-2 Ashes defeat in England.Paceman Ryan Harris also quit before the Ashes after suffering a serious knee injury. New captain Steve Smith will lead Australia’s most inexperienced test side in decades into next month’s two-match tour of Bangladesh.last_img read more

CIC raps Environ Ministry on crucial files not traceable

first_imgNew Delhi, Sep 20 (PTI) The Central Information Commission has chided the Environment Ministry for its repeated response of “files not traceable” on key projects as it ordered disclosure of complete records related to wildlife clearance granted to Indira Sagar Polavaram Project in Andhra Pradesh. The Commission also awarded a compensation of Rs 15,000 for the RTI applicant who was not given information about the crucial project in a timely manner on the excuse of “files not being traceable” in the ministry. “The repeated answer of files not traceable is reflecting disorganisation, and it is not acceptable in an RTI regime. There is no point in reiterating the same without implementing the direction of the First Appellate Authority,” Information Commissioner Sridhar Acharyulu said. He said if the office of public authority has shifted to a comfortable premises, that should have provided enough scope and reason for organising files but not to lose the files. “The public authority has to own the responsibility for this kind of disorganisation of files. The complainant was kept waiting in bewildered belief that wildlife files would be traced as promised. But it was an endless wait for him even after he approached the CIC in second appeal,” he said. Acharyulu said the core function of the department is to conserve forest, secure wildlife and also preserve the files regarding those functions. “Losing them and not expediting the process of tracing and providing that information is not proper on the part of public authority. It has infringed the right to information of the community and the planned legal action for preservation of wildlife and tribal rights kept pending with endless wait,” the Commissioner said. Terming it is a “peculiar situation” when department had ordered disclosure of information which was still not provided to applicant D Suresh Kumar, the Commissioner said the appellant is compelled to come in second appeal because of its non-implementation besides not informing about the possibility of its implementation. “The Commission finds it a deserving situation to compensate the appellant who is filing RTI application in public interest, and award compensation of Rs 15,000 for causing loss and harassment by unreasonable and illegal claim of non-traceability of records, which is being used as shield to stall Right to Information of the appellants,” he said.

IOA Rejects New Draft National Sports Code, Says Might Lead to IOC Suspension

first_img ioaIOCsports ministry First Published: November 11, 2019, 6:35 PM IST Get the best of News18 delivered to your inbox – subscribe to News18 Daybreak. Follow News18.com on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Telegram, TikTok and on YouTube, and stay in the know with what’s happening in the world around you – in real time. New Delhi: India will incur the International Olympic Committee’s wrath and might even be suspended if it goes ahead with administrative reforms enshrined in the Draft National Sports Code 2017, the IOA has warned, rejecting the proposed document completely.The Indian Olympic Association (IOA) also expressed surprise with the government’s move to seek feedback on the draft after the Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju, on October 11, announced the formation of a committee to look into the contentious provisions such age and tenure cap on officials, which are being opposed by National Sports Federations. Despite the announcement by Rijiju, the ministry, through its Director (Sports), sent a letter to the IOA on October 24 to send feedback on the Draft National Sports Code latest by November 10.IOA Secretary General Rajeev Mehta, in turn, sent a note rejecting the changes proposed by the 2017 Draft National Sports Code.”We, the IOA and all our members, outrightly reject the new Draft Sports Code as it interferes in the autonomy of the IOA and its members. The Sports Code was discussed with GOI MYAS and implemented in 2014 in IOA Statutes which enabled IOA to regain its recognition in 2012,” Mehta said in the feedback letter sent to the ministry.”Any further interference in IOA Autonomy will also be taken seriously by IOC and OCA and can once again lead to suspension of membership IOA. We certainly hope that it is not the intention of the Sports Ministry to send Indian contingent to Tokyo in 2020 Olympics under IOC Flag and not the Indian Flag.”The IOA was suspended by the IOC in December 2012 for government interference and was reinstated 14 months later after assurances on autonomy.Expressing surprise at the insistence of the ministry to furnish feedback on the Draft Sports Code, he wrote: “We are willing to work together by forming a small committee to take it forward as was agreed on 11.10.2019 and we sincerely hope that MYAS will also stand by what was conveyed to IOA & NSF’s in the 11th October, 2019 meeting.”The National Sports Code 2011 is currently in force but a new National Sports Code was drafted in 2017.The draft proposed drastic changes in the 2011 Code, including barring of ministers, members of Parliament and Legislative Assemblies and government servants from holding office in National Sports Federations (NSF) and the IOA, tenure restrictions and age cap of 70 years. The draft also widened its scope to all office-bearers and board members of the IOA and NSFs.It also calls on the NSFs to appoint CEOs, Nominee Directors and an Ombudsman. Besides, an eminent athlete is also required to be a part of the NSFs. All NSFs will also have to constitute an athletes commission.If implemented, the IOA and the NSFs will have six months to amend their constitutions as prescribed by the draft.last_img read more

IPL 2017: Mahendra Singh Dhoni answers critics with stunning glovework, monstrous six

first_imgMahendra Singh Dhoni’s string of poor performances with the bat for his franchise Rising Pune Supergiant in the ongoing 10th edition of the Indian Premier League has drawn a lot of flak from the critics. (More IPL News)Dhoni, who was replaced with Australian Steve Smith as captain of the RPS team, has looked a pale shadow of his former destructing self. The 35-year-old has managed to score a paltry 61 with an average of 15.25 in the five matches he has played in this season.Dhoni’s poor run has also affected the performance of his team which is languishing at the bottom half of the table with four points from five matches. (Dhoni a champion ODI player, not too sure if he’s a good T20 cricketer: Sourav Ganguly to India Today)Dhoni’s 61 runs are in stark contrast to Smith’s tally of 180 runs. Considering the former India captain’s poor form, there were growing voices from certain quarters which doubted Dhoni’s future as a T20 player.  However, Dhoni answered his critics to a certain extent on Sunday when he produced a sensational glove work to dismiss Royal Challengers Bangalore batsman AB de Villiers. (I think MS Dhoni should try and play his natural game: Brett Lee to India Today)BCCI Image On the second delivery of the 11th over of the RCB innings bowled by South African leg-spinner Imran Tahir, Dhoni showed his class behind the stumps when he knocked off the bails in lighting speed even before de Villiers could thing of getting back into the crease.advertisementBCCI Image Dhoni’s glove work left the commentators and spectators in complete awe.In an another instance where Dhoni slammed the door on his critics’ face was when he scored a handy knock of 28 to help RPS get to a respectable total of 161 against RCB in Bengaluru.However, what grabbed all the attention was a mighty six from Dhoni off Yuzvendra Chahal in the 14th over of the RPS innings.Chahal bowled a full length delivery and Dhoni sensed the opportunity and danced down the track to send the ball out of the M Chinnaswamy stadium.Even David Warner, captain of the Sunrisers Hyderadad, was stunned by Dhoni’s astonishing hit and tweeted: “I just heard a bang on my window!! Was that the ball @msdhoni just hit from Bangalore wow boooooom.”I just heard a bang on my window!! Was that the ball @msdhoni just hit from Bangalore wow boooooom.- David Warner (@davidwarner31) April 16, 2017Both these instances prove that Dhoni still has the ability to do some things which many others find out of reach and that his criticism based on a few low scores was absolutely naive.Earlier, former India opener Virender Sehwag had cautioned people not to write Dhoni off on the basis of “three-four” poor scores.”The position at which he’s coming in to bat is very difficult. He is still the best at No. 5 or No. 6,” Sehwag had told ABP News. “There’s no doubt that he will be back in form sooner rather than later. There’s a lot of time left in the IPL. One should not judge a player of Dhoni’s stature just by the outcome of three-four games.”Recollecting Dhoni’s century against England in the ODI series last year, Sehwag said a player of his stature should not be judged on the basis of IPL.”He recently scored a match winning hundred against England. So I don’t think he’s out of touch. You can’t even imagine an Indian side going to Champions Trophy without Dhoni. Things like this can happen in a tournament like IPL,” he added.”IPL should not be a platform to judge an experienced player like Dhoni. It’s fine if you judge a youngster on the basis of IPL as it is difficult for a newcomer to showcase his talent in front of a huge crowd,” he had said.last_img read more

Royals Dare to Dream of Sweep

first_imgKANSAS CITY, MO— Billy Butler drove in the go-ahead run in the sixth inning as the Royals’ bullpen shut down the Baltimore Orioles the rest of the way for a 2-1 victory Tuesday that gave Kansas City a commanding 3-0 lead in the American League Championship Series.Third baseman Mike Moustakas made two marvelous plays as the Royals won their 10th straight postseason game, including all seven this year.Kansas City will send Jason Vargas to the mound for Game 4 on Wednesday needing just one more win to reach their first World Series since 1985. Miguel Gonzalez will try to help the Orioles stave off elimination.The game was tied 1-1 until the Orioles’ Wei-Yin Chen put runners on the corners in the sixth. Butler followed with his sacrifice fly off reliever Kevin Gausman for the lead.Winning pitcher Jason Frasor, Kelvin Herrera, Wade Davis and Greg Holland each pitched a scoreless inning.Earlier at San Francisco, a wild throw by relief pitcher Randy Choate on a bunt allowed Brandon Crawford to score the winning run in the bottom of the 10th inning, lifting the Giants over the St. Louis Cardinals 5-4 for a 2-1 lead in the National League Championship Series.Crawford drew an eight-pitch walk from Choate to begin the inning, ending a stretch of 16 straight Giants retired since Tim Hudson’s two-out single in the fourth. After failing on two sacrifice attempts, Juan Perez singled to bring up Gregor Blanco.Blanco fouled off a bunt try, too, but then pushed one to the left side of the mound and the left-handed Choate’s sidearmed throw sailed past lunging second baseman Kolten Wong, who was covering first base.“We don’t do anything easy,” Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. “We might have got a little lucky there with Perez when he couldn’t get a bunt down and he gets a base hit. But Blanco laid down a beauty. … I don’t know if that’s luck as much as great bunt, great speed to put pressure on them.”Randal Grichuk tied it with a solo homer in the seventh that chased Hudson.Game 4 in the best-of-seven series is Wednesday night, with Ryan Vogelsong pitching for the Giants against fellow righty Shelby Miller.This walkoff win came 12 years to the day after Kenny Lofton’s single in the ninth inning ended the 2002 NLCS against the Cardinals and sent the Giants to the World Series.Playing without injured catcher Yadier Molina, the Cardinals had their chances. They squandered Wong’s double in the second before he delivered a wind-aided, two-run triple in the fourth.Javier Lopez got the first two outs of the 10th before Jon Jay’s single, just the third hit by a left-handed batter against Lopez since he joined San Francisco in 2010. Two of those are by Jay this series.Sergio Romo entered and retired Matt Holliday on a full-count grounder to third that Pablo Sandoval snared and fired to first.Molina, nursing a strained left oblique sustained in Game 2 Sunday, began warming up Trevor Rosenthal in the bullpen in the ninth but never played.TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Coca-Cola Tells FIFA to Back Independent Soccer Reform Commission

first_imgFIFA has been told by sponsor Coca-Cola to appoint an independent commission to lead a reform process aimed at cleaning up world soccer’s scandal-ridden governing body.In the most significant intervention by a company which helps to bankroll the global sport, the soft drinks giant said Friday that it formally asked FIFA to allow “one or more eminent, impartial leaders” to explore how the organization can regain its credibility and the trust of fans.After Coca-Cola’s demand was revealed, another sponsor — McDonald’s — publicly rebuked FIFA for having “internal controls and compliance culture” inconsistent with the fast-food chain’s own standards.FIFA is reeling from the indictment of 14 people — including two now-ousted vice presidents who were arrested in Zurich — in an American investigation into alleged racketeering, bribery and money laundering in soccer.The indictments were revealed in May, just before Sepp Blatter was re-elected for a fifth term as FIFA president, but mounting pressure led to him announcing plans to resign four days later. FIFA’s executive committee will meet on Monday to decide an election date, which is likely to be early 2016, and discuss potential reforms.Coca-Cola, which has sponsored FIFA since 1974, confirmed to The Associated Press that it “asked FIFA to support an independent, third-party commission overseen by one or more eminent, impartial leaders to manage the efforts necessary to help reform FIFA’s governance and its human rights requirement.”Brent Wilton, Coca-Cola director of global workplace rights, also wrote to a member of the New FIFA Now movement on Friday to say that the commission “will be the most credible way for FIFA to … build back the trust it has lost.”“We are calling for this approach out of our deep commitment to ethics and human rights and in the interest of seeing FIFA succeed,” Wilton wrote to International Trade Union Confederation General Secretary Sharan Burrow.McDonald’s — a FIFA sponsor since the 1994 World Cup — told the AP that urgent “deep reform” is required while backing the commission proposed by Coca-Cola.“Recent allegations and indictments have severely tarnished FIFA in a way that strikes at the very heart of our sponsorship,” McDonald’s said. “As a result, we have expressed our concerns directly to FIFA. We believe FIFA’s internal controls and compliance culture are inconsistent with expectations McDonald’s has for its business partners throughout the world.“FIFA must now implement meaningful changes to restore trust and credibility with fans and sponsors alike. The world expects concrete actions and so does McDonald’s.”Swiss federal investors are also looking into the bidding contests for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups where sponsor branding will feature prominently at games.The call for an “eminent” individual to lead the overhaul of FIFA echoes a key demand in a document from global anti-corruption watchdog Transparency International earlier this week.United Nations secretary-general Kofi Annan was named this week by a senior Netherlands football federation official as the type of leader FIFA needs to restore credibility. Annan, a 77-year-old from Ghana, was the top U.N. official for 10 years through 2006 and has also attended showpiece UEFA events recently, including the Champions League final.A figure from outside of soccer like Annan, however, would be unable to stand for the FIFA presidency, with rules requiring candidates to have been active in football for two of the past five years.The highlighting by Coca-Cola of FIFA’s need to address human rights issues follows criticism of 2022 World Cup host Qatar’s treatment of migrant workers and its lack of progress implementing changes to labor legislation.ROB HARRIS, AP Sports Writer___Rob Harris can be followed at www.twitter.com/RobHarris TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

India series a great challenge but we are up for it: West Indies skipper Jason Holder

first_imgWest Indies have come to India on the back of some impressive performances, especially the memorable win against England at Leeds last year. Jason Holder’s boys have had a decent 2018 as they drew with Sri Lanka and Bangladesh at home, but a sterner Test awaits.Even though the current West Indies squad may not have much experience of playing in India, but Holder believes his team can take on the world number one side like it has done against other top teams.The unit is not short on talent but it has little idea of playing in India with only five members of the 15-man squad having featured in a Test in the country.Skipper Holder, who himself has not played a Test in India, however, remains confident.”It is a great challenge and everyone is up for it. We have pushed top teams in the last few years. This group has shown what they can do. We are just focussed on playing good cricket and would not like to be drawn in personal battles,” said Holder ahead of the first Test beginning here Thursday.The team is clear with its game plans having spent a week in Dubai before playing a two-day warm-up in Baroda.READ – Prithvi Shaw ‘a bit nervous’ but feeling very good ahead of Test debut”Patience plays a massive role in India. We need to stick to games plans and not get into one-on-one battles. We have discussed how we are going to score runs against their quality attack,” said the 26-year-old, who has played 34 Tests.advertisement”One of the things I spoke about was patience, capitalising on every opportunity to score. Not be reckless at the same time but have a clear game plan to score.”Pace is West Indies’s strength though they have been hit by the absence of Kemar Roach in the series opener after the lead fast bowler had to rush back home following the death of his grandmother.The pitch here has bit of grass covering and Holder is not complaining.”It (pitch) was covered when I came today but there seems to be a bit of grass. The practice facilities are brilliant in Gujarat. But like I said cricket is played on the day. It is about executing your plans,” he said.The West Indies have produced a battery of world-class T20 players including Chris Gayle and Kieron Pollard and since they are a force to reckon with in the shortest format, there is a perception that the region’s players are not attracted to the five-day format.READ – Prithvi Shaw to debut in 1st Test as India announce 12-man squadAt least in the current setup, Holder said there are many who rate Test cricket as the pinnacle of the game.”Funny you have asked me that question. Couple of days ago I was just chatting around in the dressing room. I highlighted how much of a joy and pride I feel in playing Tests. I love all formats but Test is my favourite,” he said.”It was shocking to know that most, if not everyone, said that they want to be successful Test players. Even during CPL T20, you see young players showing eagerness to play Test cricket.”There is often talk about Test cricket dying but if youngsters coming in the Caribbean are looking forward to play Tests, the format will stay for a long long time,” said the captain.READ – Virat Kohli looks at the future as India gear up for West IndiesIn the end, Holder paid a glowing tribute to outgoing coach Stuart Law, who will part ways with the team after the India and Bangladesh tour.”He has definitely brought in a lot of order to West Indies cricket. He has put the structures in place. He will be missed and I wish him the best,” he added.(With inputs from PTI)last_img read more

Koio and Beverly Hills Hotel Team Up for Lush New Shoe Collection

first_img The Best Wheated Bourbon Alternatives to Pappy Editors’ Recommendations Allbirds and Just Water Collaborate on Sneakers to Save the Amazon Rainforest Even though fall is here, the designers at one of our favorite brands would like to keep those summer vibes around just a little bit longer. To help with that, Koio teamed up with the legendary Beverly Hills Hotel for a three-shoe collection centered on the property’s iconic Martinique banana leaf wallpaper.“There’s such a classic prestige with the hotel,” says Koio co-founder Johannes Quodt. “They take so much care in keeping their brand really interesting too.”Hollywood decorator Don Loper originally created the banana leaf print in 1942. It became synonymous with luxury and celebrity in the 1970s as the backdrop in many celebrity photos.

“Sri Lanka’s principled support for Palestine remains,” the Minister said.Sri Lanka last month abstained from voting on a resolution by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) which denounced Israeli violations in and around the al-Haram al-Sharif (also known as the Temple Mount) compound in the occupied Old City of Jerusalem al-Quds. The UNESCO resolution was submitted by the Palestinians supported by Egypt, Morocco, Algeria, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar and Sudan.Samaraweera however said that Sri Lanka’s decision to abstain from voting in the resolution does not mean Sri Lanka’s policy on Palestine has changed.He said that Sri Lanka feels the issue between Palestine and Israel should be resolved through negotiations and so it did not feel the resolution will be helpful. (Colombo Gazette) The Minister said that successive Governments have backed the Palestinian cause and that policy has not changed. He recalled that Sri Lanka has supported Palestine in the international fora including in the UN. The Government today asserted that there was no change to Sri Lanka’s policy towards Palestine.Foreign Minister Mangala Samaraweera told Parliament that the relations between both countries is strong as ever. read more

Freshman Maddy Humphrey shines as Buckeyes pick up 1st victory of 2014

The Ohio State University Field Hockey team defeat Miami 3-2 at Varsity Field, The Ohio State University. September 5, 2014Credit: Courtesy of OSU athleticsOn her parents’ 33rd wedding anniversary, Ohio State freshman forward Maddy Humphrey scored the first two goals of her OSU career and assisted on another to lead the OSU field hockey team to its first win of the season.The Buckeyes won, 3-2, against Miami (Ohio) on Friday behind Humphrey’s brace and a goal from junior back Emma Royce.“Those two (goals) are for them,” Humphrey said about her parents in attendance.OSU picked up the win despite being outshot, 15-2, by the Redhawks in the second half.“It feels awesome. I love this team more than anything,” Humphrey said. “We’re just a family, and I’ll do anything for them. We’d do anything for each other.”The Buckeyes came out aggressively looking for shots and struck less than 12 minutes into the game. After being denied twice early, Humphrey snuck in front of the cage and converted off a pass from senior midfielder Kaitlyn Wagner to put OSU in front.OSU possessed the ball for much of the first half, but Miami responded with more than eight minutes remaining in the period on a goal from sophomore midfielder Geagy Pritchard from the left corner.The Buckeyes were not satisfied with a halftime tie, however. With 6:31 to play in the first half, Humphrey showed some of her ball-handling skills. She maneuvered into the scoring zone, hurdled a defender and fired a shot from right to left to put OSU back on top, 2-1.The third Buckeye goal of the game came with a little more than three minutes to play in the first half when Royce converted off a penalty corner from Humphrey.“I was really proud of (Humphrey) because she put away goals when we most needed it,” Royce said. “Her goal actually fired me up for scoring the third.”Humphrey was slowed down in the second half after receiving a shoulder to the chest area early in the period. She returned to the game, but was visibly winded on the field and had to leave the game again.Miami mounted a late comeback behind an unassisted goal from Pritchard with just over four minutes to play. However, the Buckeyes held on for the 3-2 victory behind solid goalkeeping from freshman Liz Tamburro, who saved 10 shots in the second half.OSU is scheduled to have a week off before its next game against the Ohio University Bobcats on Friday.Royce said it is important that OSU uses the extra time to work on keeping its defensive pressure up for a full 70 minutes of play.“(Miami) got that second goal in and that put a lot more pressure on us that we didn’t need,” Royce said. “We’re gonna be tightening up the defense and keep working on putting those goals away.”OSU coach Anne Wilkinson said she’s going to let her team get some recovery time in after a hard-earned victory.“I’m gonna just let them relax and let their bodies repair,” Wilkinson said. “We’ve really been going hard through this entire preseason so we’ll let them just relax a little bit.”The Buckeyes’ game against Ohio is scheduled for 7 p.m. in Athens, Ohio. read more
