Dalit man’s family to receive compensation from Punjab government

first_imgThe Punjab government on Monday offered to pay compensation of ₹20 lakh and a government job to the deceased Dalit man’s wife and free education for his children. The family of 37-year-old Jagmel Singh who was mercilessly thrashed and forced to drink urine earlier this month ended their protest after the announcement. The family had refused to allow the post mortem of the body till their demand of ₹50 lakh compensation and a government job for the victim’s wife were met. Sandeep Sandhu, political secretary to Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh, said a compensation of ₹20 lakh including ₹ 8.15 lakh provided under the SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act will be given to the next of kin. Sandhu, who held a meeting with the victim’s family here, further said that a government job would also be given to a family member of Jagmel. Besides, an Additional Director General of Police-rank officer will conduct a probe to find out if there was any lapse on the part of police in this case and a challan against all the four accused would be submitted within seven days, he said. The government will also bear the education expenditure of his three children till their graduation. He further said that a sum of ₹1.25 lakh would also be given for repair of their house. On October 21, the victim, who was a resident of Changaliwala village in Punjab’s Sangrur district, got into an altercation with one Rinku and some other persons. The dispute was resolved with the intervention of villagers, the police said. Before his death, the victim had told the police that on November 7, Rinku called him to his house where the two talked about the issue. He had alleged that he was then thrashed by four persons with a stick and an iron rod after being tied to a pillar and was forced to drink urine when he asked for water. After the incident, the opposition parties have attacked the Congress government over “barbaric treatment” being meted out to Dalits in the state. The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) said a “rule of jungle” was prevalent in the state.last_img read more

IPL 2016: I will get fitter with every game, says Ashish Nehra

first_imgSunrisers Hyderabad seamer Ashish Nehra admitted to being a bit ‘rusty’ in the game against Pune Supergiants on Tuesday and said that he will improve with each passing game in the ongoing Indian Premier League after missing out on the action for two weeks.”I played after two weeks. The more I will play, I will get better. I was a bit rusty compared to what I was bowling for last six to eight months. So, as more games come up in next one week or 10 days, I will get better from here,” he said in a post-match press conference after SRH lost to RPS by 34 runs in a rain-hit match.Electing to bowl first, Pune restricted Sunrisers to a poor 118-8. In response, Pune made 94-3 in 11 overs before rain interrupted the match. Pune won by 34 runs by Duckworth Lewis method.Though disappointed to end up losing the match, Nehra, however, said it is part of the game and learning from mistakes is the way forward.”It can happen in any T20 game. You must have seen so many times. Teams are scoring 200, 220 and same team next game is getting out for 120, 130. That’s the nature of the game. That can happen,” he said.”But, once you are 30/5, you are always playing that catching up game. We are lucky to score 120, because Bhuvneshwar Kumar managed to score those 20 runs in the end. Otherwise, at one point of time, we were like 105, 100 may be. Once you are defending 100 or 110, it’s very difficult.”advertisementNehra said there is no need to panic after losing a game since they had convincingly won the previous games.”After losing one or two games, we don’t need to panic.You can even play 10 batters. It does not mean you will score 200. You have to have bowlers also to do well,” he said.”You see RCB for instance. They are always scoring 180, 200 and other teams are still able to chase. It is not like only one team can hit big shots. Other teams can also hit. So, I think we have enough batting. It’s just that we have to apply better. It is part of the game.”All in all, it wasn’t a good game for us. But, there is plenty more to come. Still early days in the tournament. We are looking forward,” he said.Hyderabad won three matches on the trot while chasing some tricky targets and Nehra said it has become a trend of late that teams are winning more batting second.”In IPL, lately it has been the trend that teams chasing are winning more. Unless you are chasing 190 or 200, it also depends on the wicket. Some grounds like Bangalore and Mumbai, people are even chasing 200. So, we were lucky.”All the three times, we chased only 135 and 140. It becomes easy for us. But, all in all, you always look to improve. Nobody likes to be 30/5,” he said.last_img read more

ICC Champions Trophy: Won’t face problem while opening for India, says Rohit Sharma

first_imgMumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma, who batted at No. 4 throughout the IPL season 10, has insisted that he would be having no issues when he would open the batting for India in the upcoming Champions Trophy, beginning June 1 in England and Wales as both are two completely different formats.”When you play for India, it’s a different format. I don’t see why people compare IPL and international cricket. My requirement here (with Mumbai Indians) was in the middle-order, and that’s what I did,” said Rohit while addressing a press conference in Mumbai.”We realised at the start of the IPL that it’s better for me to bat down the order to get that balance right. I go there (to play for India), it’s a different thing. I don’t see that we need to make any comparisons when it comes to the IPL and international cricket,” he added.The Mumbai-born cricketer, who amassed 333 runs in 17 games he played for his franchise while batting at No. 4, feels that in the present era, players across the world adapt to the changing formats, that too with ease. Also Watch”For the last 10 years we have been playing in IPL. Then we go and play 50-over games and Test matches. So, I don’t think, at this point, it is difficult for anyone, adjust. It’s just in your mind that you have to keep reminding yourself that you need to change your mentality in terms of the format you are going to play,” the right-hander said.Rohit was out of action since October 2016 after suffering a thigh injury which required surgery.advertisementThe 30-year-old has so far represented India in 21 Tests, 153 ODIs and 62 T20Is in which he has scored 1184, 5131 and 1364 runs respectively.He is also the only batsman to have scored two double hundreds and a 250 in ODIs. His on field records keep everyone stunned, be it his stunning 209 in an ODI against Australia at Bangalore where he scored 209 runs or his record knock of 264 in an ODI against Sri Lanka at Kolkata.India begin their Champions Trophy campaign against arch-rivals Pakistan on June 4 at Edgbaston.last_img read more

Chalk Talk: How the Cowboys Could Use Jalen McClesky (Pt. 1)

first_imgMany people expect that sophomore Jalen McCleskey will be one of OSU’s breakout players in 2016. McCleskey had a respectable freshman campaign, and now with slot receiver David Glidden gone, he will presumably play a bigger role in the offense. So how can the Cowboys get McCleskey involved? They could do so in any number of ways, and that’s what this week’s Chalk Talk will be about. Today, we’re going to look how No. 1 can get easily involved in the screen game.Screens are a great way to get talented players in space. There are a lot of different kinds of screens, including the traditional jailbreak, slip or slow screens. Your most basic wide receiver screens include the tunnel or middle screen:tunnel_NDOr some type of attachment bubble or now screen.UO_bubbleA lot of true wide receiver screens include pulling lineman. But there are many air raid coaches, including famed air raid coach Bob Stitt, that favor screens with no lineman involved. One of those said screens is the drag screen, which is prevalent in spread offenses both at at the collegiate and professional level. In this post, we’re going to focus specifically on this kind of screen. Here’s a still of the old OSU Holgorsen offense running the play with Justin Blackmon as the primary receiver:blackmon drag screenAs you can see, the play features one receiver ‘dragging’ across the field. The running back’s job is to block the strong-side linebacker or, if it’s against man coverage, block the receiver’s defender and take his own defender with him. All the other receivers run streaks to get the defense upfield, and the inside slot receiver tries to pick off the dragging receiver’s defender if against man coverage.blackmon_dragThe play is a high-percentage throw and a good way to get easy yards after the catch. And if the run game isn’t working out, easy completions like this can act as a substitute. Additionally, teams can run this out of pretty much any formation.Some teams run it from trips (but from the weak side):drag_broncosAnd some from an empty set:drag_jakeemThe best part of this play is that it’s flexible. Against man, it becomes a race to the sideline, and the defender has to try and catch up to the speedy receiver. Against zone, the quarterback just has to time the throw correctly to allow the receiver to catch the ball with the other players in position to block.With his speed and elusiveness, McCleskey would thrive on plays like this; when not overused, it’s practically free yardage. Hopefully easy plays like this will be installed to both give the right players the proper touches and to take pressure off of Mason Rudolph; they are quick and easy and could jumpstart any drive.How would you use McCleskey in the screen game?

UN Adviser for gender equality holds talks with Lankan officials

In welcoming the visit, Deputy High Commissioner Tim Huggins said “Australia is fully committed to increasing women’s leadership, women’s economic empowerment and addressing violence against women and girls.“Australia’s aid investments in Sri Lanka are designed to ensure that women benefit from all our economic growth-related programs. Ms Broderick’s visit and her engagement with private sector leaders will encourage the development of policies that maximise the participation of women in Sri Lanka’s economy,” Mr Huggins added. Prominent Australian gender equality advocate Elizabeth Broderick (AO) had talks in Sri Lanka with business and public leaders on the important issue of promoting gender equality.Ms Broderick met with business leaders, including members of the Prime Minister’s taskforce on female workforce participation, to discuss the business case for gender equality. Broderick, a former Australian Sex Discrimination Commissioner (2007-15), is the Global Co-Chair of UN Global Compact Women’s Empowerment Principles, Special Adviser to Under-Secretary UN Women on Private Sector Engagement, and Founder of the ‘Male Champions of Change’ initiative – working with influential male leaders to become advocates for gender equality.

Creator of Python leaves Google to join Dropbox

first_imgThere’s not that many people in the world that can claim to have created their own programming language, and even fewer who’s language went on to be a major success and used on computers around the world. One of those individuals is Guido van Rossum.Guido created and released the Python programming language back in 1991. Since then it has only gained in popularity and currently sits 8th in the TIOBE index, which ranks languages by popularity. The organizations that use it include NASA, CERN, Yahoo!, and Google to name just a few. And it’s at Google where Guido has spent the last 7 years working, and spending half his time actually working on Python.Google and Guido seem like the perfect fit, but no longer. It has been announced today that Guido has left Google and will start work at Dropbox in January. It’s a surprising move, but one that fits for both Guido and Dropbox.Python is popular because it’s easy to learn, easy to read, and runs on everything. And it’s that last feature that made Dropbox CEO Drew Houston choose it as the language to build the Dropbox service on. So the creator of Python will be working at a company that relies on his language to function, as does anyone who used Dropbox.The announcement by Houston on the Dropbox Tech Blog doesn’t say specifically what Guido will be doing there. However, he does state both Guido and the Python community have already helped solve several “interesting challenges” related to Dropbox, so I assume Guido will become the resident problem solver and Python consultant.As for Guido’s departure from Google, he states they are still “the best of friends.”More at the Dropbox Tech Blog and Guido’s Google+last_img read more

Lets hear it for Greeklish

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram ‘Alo, dali mou!’ is a phrase so familiar to thousands of Greek Australians. Greeklish has become an alternative ethnic ‘dialect’ for Greek migrants living in predominately English speaking countries. The Australian Slang Project (TASP) is embarking on a project to eventually create a dictionary for the unofficial language.TASP founder and SBS Greek radio presenter, Kyriakos Gold, says the group is in the process of establishing an online database, much like the popular Urban Dictionary website, that will allow Greek Australians to contribute their favourite Greeklish words.The inaugural event for The Greeklish Project will be held at the Greek Centre in Melbourne, hosted by Kyriakos Gold at 7.00 pm on Saturday 25 July. The event will see storytellers test their knowledge and fight for the title of Greeklish Champion.Slam poetry and music battles are also encouraged. The best stage acts will win great prizes along the way, courtesy of Neos Kosmos, The Greek Centre, Hellenic Republic, Gazi restaurant and Bahari restaurant.Helen Kapalos, George Donikian, and Dean Kalymniou will be participating with their own Greeklish projects, while special guest musicians Con Kalamaras and Anthea Sidiropoulos will keep the audience entertained.last_img read more

Clark County federal workers brace for possibility of government shutdown

first_imgA U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service vehicle drives north on Main Avenue in Ridgefield on Friday, passing under a sign advertising the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge’s Bird Fest event next weekend. Whether the U.S. government will partially shut down Tuesday is still anyone’s guess, but federal workers in Clark County are preparing for the worst.At the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge, part of U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, officials were busy Friday making sure they had everything lined up in case they need to close their gates. The refuge’s annual Bird Fest event takes place next weekend, but if a government shutdown lasts more than a week, the refuge will need to go with Plan B. That includes moving its bird-watching activities elsewhere and postponing one of its most popular attractions, the sandhill crane tour.“Bird-watching on the refuge is different than it is off the refuge,” the site’s deputy project leader, Randal Hill, said. He added that Bird Fest is a chance for the refuge to raise money and show the public the role it plays in protecting wildlife. School field trips and volunteer events at the refuge also would be cancelled during a shutdown.The last time Congress brought the nation close to a government shutdown, in 2011, Hill recalled, “We wasted a huge amount of time just going through the preparation process for a potential shutdown.” Now it’s happening all over again, he said.The refuge is just one example of the various ways a looming shutdown is inconveniencing agencies in Clark County and the state. As officials who oversee health programs, social services and parks brace for the impact, many say the negative effects on their agencies would depend upon how long a shutdown lasts.last_img read more

A quick and dirty look at the Nvidia Shields PC game streaming

first_imgWe’ve talked about Nvidia’s Shield many times in the past, but now that it’s available it was time to test out the feature we’ve most been looking forward to. I gave the Shield’s PC game streaming capabilities a quick test run with a couple of Steam games that work great with a gamepad, mainly Rogue Legacy and Monaco.Setup should have been easy, but I initially had a few bumps in the road, such as the Shield randomly disconnecting from the PC, experiencing extreme lag, and simply freezing up. I switched WiFi networks a few times and did Windows-style fixes (uninstalling, reinstalling, and restarting things), and eventually found a combination that worked. Keep in mind, the PC game streaming feature is currently in beta, so I didn’t fret much when the experience was less than ideal.Instead of giving the play area the movie treatment, I wanted the videos below to capture what using the Shield to stream PC games was really like — moderate glare and all. I used the Shield’s speakers on full blast, and didn’t have the PC’s speakers plugged in, just like you would at home.First up, a quick look at (and quick deaths in) Rogue Legacy:Next up, the first level as the Locksmith in Monaco.As you can see, the Shield’s 5-inch screen is very much a 5-inch screen. It’s difficult to make out unless you’re holding it right up to your face, just like any other portable gaming handheld. You can see that the blobs moving around on the screen matched up with the in-game action, meaning there was extremely little latency, often not noticeable at all. The sound, however, would experience a bit of latency and pop or cut out every now and then.I tried to play some more “unsupported” Steam games, such as the controller-supported Hotline Miami, the controller-supported Dyad, and Antichamber, which doesn’t support a gamepad. Hotline Miami recognized the Shield’s left thumb stick and that was it, even after working on the controller settings. Dyad did not recognize the Shield, nor did Antichamber (though this one isn’t supposed to have gamepad support). So, out of games with gamepad support, we were two for four. Not too bad for a beta, but this makes me wonder if every game will have to receive specialized treatment in order to play nicely with the Shield.Finallty I tested the Shield from about 30 or so feet away and it seemed to stream just fine, so bathroom-gamers rejoice. For now, though, the Shield will need to move out of beta for gamers to play more than a small handful of PC games.last_img read more
