He added that he made no demands from either the selection panel or skipper Faf Du Plessis.”During the weeks and months that followed, there was no formal contact between Cricket South Africa or the Proteas and me.

I had made my decision and the Proteas moved on, enjoying success under the expert guidance of coach Ottis Gibson and the outstanding captaincy of Faf du Plessis,” de Villiers had said.”Faf and I have been friends since we were at school together and, two days before the World Cup squad was announced, I contacted him for a chat.

New Delhi: Four power producers, including Jindal Power and JSW Energy, are set to supply 1,000 MW power collectively to three south Indian states at a tariff of Rs 4.41 per unit for short-term under a pilot scheme to bring back stressed power assets on stream. Under Pilot Scheme-II of Ministry of Power, Jindal Power would supply 315 MW, followed by Korba West Power Company (295 MW), JSW Energy (290 MW), Essar Power M P Ltd (100 MW). NHPC was appointed an aggregator by PFC Consultancy through e-tendering for Pilot Scheme-II. “NHPC has got confirmation from three south Indian states for signing short-term (for 3 years) power purchase agreements (PPAs) for supply of 1,000 MW. Therefore, the letters of award have been issued to four companies — Jindal Power, Korba West Power Company, JSW Energy and Essar Power M P Ltd — for supply of 1,000 MW collectively,” a source said. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalThe PPAs for supply of 1,000 MW to three states are expected to be signed in a month, the source said. State-owned hydro power giant NHPC is the aggregator for tying up 2,500 MW power under the scheme. “NHPC is in advance stages of negotiations with other states in the country for tying up for remaining 1,500 MW of power through coal-fired power plants. The PPA could be inked in a month after states’ confirmation,” the source said. The objective of the scheme is to facilitate procurement of power for three years from coal-based power plants that are already commissioned, but do not have PPAs. Since a PPA is a prerequisite for getting coal linkage, these plants are under stress. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boostEarlier this year, NHPC had discovered a tariff of Rs 4.41 per unit in a reverse auction under the scheme. Under the auction, Jindal Power was allowed the highest supply of 315 MW, followed by Korba West Power Company (295 MW), JSW Energy (290 MW), Essar Power M P Ltd (200 MW), Jindal Power (200 MW), DB Power (165 MW) and MB Power Madhya Pradesh (125 MW). RKM Powergen got 165 MW, followed by Sembcorp Gayatri Power (150 MW), Jindal India Thermal Power (115 MW), Jaypee Bina (100 MW), Jaypee Nigrie Super (100 MW), TRN Energy (100 MW), SKS Power Generation Chhattisgarh (100 MW), and Shree Cement (80 MW). In October 2018, PTC India, as an aggregator, had finalised supply of 1,900 MW capacity under the first such scheme at a tariff of Rs 4.24 per unit and PPAs were signed on October 29, 2019. RKM Powergen (550 MW), Jhabua Power Ltd (100 MW), MB Power Ltd (175 MW), SKS Power (300 MW), Jindal India Thermal Power Ltd (125 MW), IL&FS Energy (550 MW) and JP Nigrie (100 MW) were the successful bidders under Scheme-I. The procuring discoms under Scheme-I were of Telangana and Tamil Nadu for 550 MW each, West Bengal and Bihar for 200 MW each, while Haryana had consented to sign for 400 MW.
WINNIPEG – The lawyer for a woman convicted of concealing the remains of six dead infants in a storage locker says her jail sentence was too long and she should be released until her appeal can be heard.Greg Brodsky told the Manitoba Court of Appeal on Wednesday that Andrea Giesbrecht, 44, should be granted bail because her “sentence was extraordinarily harsh.”Giesbrecht was sentenced to 8 1/2 years in prison last July.Crown attorney Jennifer Mann argued that the sentence was reasonable given Giesbrecht’s actions and said the grounds for appeal are frivolous.Mann acknowledged the case was unprecedented, but pointed out that provincial court Judge Murray Thompson noted during sentencing that Giesbrecht’s moral blameworthiness was extreme.The infant remains, which medical experts testified were at or near full term, were found by Winnipeg U-Haul employees in 2014 after Giesbrecht failed to keep up with her payments.Giesbrecht, dressed in grey with her brown hair hanging past her shoulders, sat quietly in a chair behind her lawyers as Brodsky told court that his client should be allowed to return to her home in Winnipeg. He said she would be monitored by probation services and the Elizabeth Fry Society.He also said there isn’t a concern about another pregnancy because Giesbrecht’s husband had a vasectomy.Giesbrecht was saving the bodies in plastic bags and containers, not disposing of them, and there’s no proof the babies were born alive, Brodsky said.Giesbrecht never testified and the trial never heard a motive for her actions.“She’s not charged with killing the infants and she can’t be sentenced as if she was,” Brodsky argued. “If there’s no homicide here, we don’t need such a severe sentence.”Mann pointed to evidence at the trial detailing the extreme decomposition of the remains.“We will never know how they died,” she said.Brodsky also argued the lower court judge should not have dismissed his motion raising issues about the trial’s delay. The motion was filed two days before Giesbrecht was sentenced.Court of Appeal Justice Michel Monnin said he has concerns with Giesbrecht’s request to live at home and reserved his decision.Giesbrecht’s factum, or argument for the appeal, must be submitted to the court by the end of April.
Thomas S. C. FarrellAn Applied Linguistics professor has been invited to lead a series of workshops at a prestigious research centre in China.Thomas S. C. Farrell has been invited by the National Academic Training Programs for In-service EFL Teachers in Tertiary Education in China. He will lecture and lead workshops on reflective teaching practice in July 2012. The audiences for the workshops are university English as a Foreign Language (EFL) teachers across China who want to improve their competence in EFL research and teaching capabilities.Reflective teaching means that teachers subject their beliefs and practices to critical reflection, take full responsibility for their actions in the classroom, and continue to improve their teaching. As part of professional development, reflective teachers engage in various activities to systematically assess their own practices.“I am delighted with this invitation as they only invite world -renowned scholars in their field for these workshops,” Farrell said. “I’m happy to be considered for my work in reflective practice.”Farrell’s visit will be at the National Research Centre for Foreign Language Education of Beijing Foreign Studies University and Foreign Language Teaching and Research Press centre.Farrell has written several books on reflective practice. Another, Reflective Writing for Language Teachers, is due next year.

SAO PAULO — Four years ago, then-Gremio coach Luiz Felipe Scolari was humiliated by his once-loving Palmeiras fans during a Brazilian league match.They chanted “7-1! 7-1! 7-1!” during their 2-1 victory at Pacaembu Stadium, a reference to the hammering Big Phil took as Brazil coach in the 2014 World Cup semifinals against Germany five months earlier.It didn’t matter that Scolari had given the Sao Paulo club its only Copa Libertadores title in 1999. Or that he was the mastermind when Palmeiras won the 2012 Brazilian Cup unbeaten with one of their worst teams in recent history. The home humiliation with Brazil was too big of a stain to be erased so quickly.Fast forward four years and once again the coach of Palmeiras, Scolari could win his first major title at home since the historic embarrassment against the Germans at the Mineirao Stadium. With a victory on Sunday at Vasco da Gama, one of the worst teams in the Brazilian league, Scolari will win his second trophy in the competition — 22 years after the first.Few expected that when Scolari took over in July. Palmeiras was lagging in sixth place in the standings despite being the biggest spender in the country. Midfielder Lucas Lima, once courted by Barcelona, was not delivering. Former Alaves striker Deyverson was too undisciplined. The team’s defence was unreliable.But after a record 21-match unbeaten streak in the league, no one in Brazil doubts the former Chelsea manager anymore. Scolari’s team now has 74 points, five ahead of Flamengo, with two matches to play.“There is no use in breaking records if we are not crowned champions,” Scolari said Wednesday after a 4-0 win over America.After spending three years at Chinese club Guangzhou Evergrande, the 70-year-old Scolari is once again revered as one of the best Brazilian coaches in the business. His attacking Palmeiras team is much more stylish than the stiff Brazil of four years ago and, most importantly, the 7-1 chants from opposing fans have disappeared.Even if the title doesn’t come on Sunday, Palmeiras will still have another chance at home on Dec. 2 against Vitoria, which could be relegated by then.CHILEAN PROTESTChile midfielder Jean Beausejour used his national team jersey to make a point.The 34-year-old player and his Chilean teammates wanted to honour a mapuche Indian named Camilo Catrillanca before their friendly match against Honduras. Catrillanca was killed by Chilean police in an incident that has shocked the South American country.The president of the Chilean soccer association, however, denied the request of a minute’s silence because Catrillanca did not have any sports links. So Beausejour wore his mapuche name of Coliqueo on his national team shirt.Chile won the match 4-1.URUGUAYAN PROMISETwo weeks after Penarol defended its Uruguayan title, there are still players fulfilling their promises and taking pictures to prove it.Midfielder Cristian Rodriguez climbed the Pan de Azucar, one of the highest points in the country at 389 metres. Midfielder Fabian Estoyanoff dyed his hair silver.Rodriguez scored Penarol’s winning goal in the victory over archrival Nacional on Nov. 11.Penarol has 52 Uruguayan titles while Nacional has 46.ECUADORIAN ONIONSAmerica de Quito, the runner-up in the Ecuadorian league in 1969 and 1971, is back in the country’s top division for the first time in 30 years.Known as “Cebollitas,” or the Little Onions, they were relegated in 1988 and had not returned until Wednesday’s 4-0 win over Portoviejo.In the last round of Ecuador’s Serie B, America has a shot at winning the title.___More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/apf-Soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_SportsMauricio Savarese, The Associated Press
During his international career, he made 3,807 runs and took 362 wickets in Test cricket, and in 2010 was inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame. Host Evan Davis later apologised for the mix-upCredit:BBC At the end of the programme, presenter Evan Davis said: “We made a mistake in our opening tonight. The footage we showed was of the cricketer Wasim Akram not Imran Khan.”Don’t know how that happened, sincere apologies for that.”Later, a BBC spokesman said: “We’d like to reiterate the sincere apology we made on air last night for an error that occurred during the programme.”We are looking into how this mistake happened and will be tightening our processes on Newsnight to prevent an incident like this happening again.”Both men are icons of Pakistan cricket. Prior to launching a political career that could see him become the country’s new prime minister, Khan – who retired from the sport in 1992 – led Pakistan to victory at the 1992 Cricket World Cup, Pakistan’s first and only victory in that competition. Apologies on our intro just then!! A bit of an error – that was Wasim Akram bowling and not Imran Khan #newsnight— BBC Newsnight (@BBCNewsnight) 25 July 2018 Akram, meanwhile, has remained in the sport since his retirement and spends much of his time commentating on the game.As a left-arm fast bowler, he was the first to reach the 500-wicket mark in One Day International cricket during the 2003 World Cup and also took more than 400 wickets for his country in Tests. Newsnight has apologised for showing footage of Pakistan bowler Wasim Akram instead of his former teammate-turned-politician Imran Khan.The flagship BBC2 news programme opened with a piece documenting Khan’s journey from a cricketing hero to a potential prime minister.But instead of showing the right-handed all-rounder in action, footage of left-arm pace bowler Akram demolishing a batsman’s stumps was shown instead.Viewers picked up on the error and the programme apologised on Twitter.Doctor Foster actor Prasanna Puwanarajah said: “Wow. Did Newsnight just use a clip of Wasim Akram to illustrate a story about Imran Khan? (Yes. They did.)” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Britain’s most senior counter terrorism officer has said media coverage of deadly attacks could be exacerbating the problem and increasing the threat.Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, said while he did not seek to undermine press freedom, he was concerned that the reporting of extremist atrocities could be unwittingly promoting terrorism.Mr Basu said he understood the huge public demand for information when a deadly attack took place, but suggested the “relentless” coverage on the mainstream and social media was not always helpful.His controversial comments come just months after be became embroiled in a row over press freedom following the publication of leaked cables from the former British ambassador to Washington, Sir Kim Darroch.Mr Basu was heavily criticised when he suggested journalists who published such information could be prosecuted for breaching the Official Secrets Act.In his latest comments he warned the media against providing blanket coverage when terrorist attack took place.Speaking at an international conference on counter terrorism in Israel, Mr Basu, said the whole of society, including the media, had a role to play in helping to prevent extremists launching attacks.He suggested the coverage that followed such an incident might be playing into the terrorists’ hands by helping them promote their cause. He said: “Relentless media coverage of terrorist events is understandable given the public interest, but may exacerbate the problem. I am concerned that both social and mainstream media unwittingly amplify the threat.“I don’t seek to undermine press freedoms – they are important – but I do want to work with them to understand if their reporting style can help prevent, not promote, terrorism.”Mr Basu also revealed that the UK authorities have prevented 22 terror plots since the Westminster Bridge attack in March 2017 – a third of them associated with far right extremism.It is understood three plots have been successfully foiled over the summer months since May.

IF YOU’VE BEEN following the nail-biting baking and the tense tart-constructions over the past nine episodes, you’ll know that the final of the Great British Bake Off is on telly tonight.The fabulous baker boys Brendan, John and James will battle it out for the title of baker of the year.Here’s a flash-in-the-pan look at the series so far:
Amazon is making all the right moves to introduce an Android tablet of its own on the market. There’s the hardware experience from creating and selling the Kindle, the already popular Amazon Appstore for all your Android app needs, and the promise of lots of free premium apps such as those offered in the deal just done with PopCap.So where’s the hardware? Amazon is staying silent, but that doesn’t stop the rumors flowing about what we can expect from the device they must be planning.BGR has been told that we shouldn’t be expecting just one tablet from the e-tailer, though. Just like the Kindle has two models, the Amazon Android tablet will be offered in two versions as well. They could differ in display size, but it’s what’s under the hood we are most concerned about.The two tablets will cater to the entry level and enthusiast markets. The lower-end tablet is expected to be based on the Nvidia Tegra 2 platform and is codenamed Coyote. The high-end device will use the new Nvidia T30 ‘Kal-El’ quad core chip and is codenamed Hollywood. That’s all we’ve heard for the moment, but more details are sure to follow soon.A 7-inch and 10-inch tablet line up, maybe? It could happen, and would make sense if Amazon intends to compete for our cash with the top tablets already on the market in both categories.Until Amazon makes an official announcement we won’t know for sure, but we doubt it will be long before such an announcement is forthcoming. Earlier this month we heard that the company had already started ordering components from Quanta Computer and E Ink with 800,000 production tablets expected before the end of this year.via BGR
This writer has been loving the highly competitive SSD market we’ve seen in 2012. Prices have dropped consistently over the years and 2012 has finally brought SSDs into a price range that nearly any prospective buyer can manage.For those who needed a higher capacity drive, they were stuck waiting a little longer for prices to drop, but the wait is definitely over. We have seen prices on high capacity drives finally drop below $1 per gigabyte and this is definitely a sweet spot for purchasing.Kingston’s HyperX 3K drives have been well received as a cost effective lineup that offer competitive performance and a 3 year warranty. This 240GB model is rated for 555 MB/s read and 510 MB/s write performance, but the real performance boon with SSDs comes from their random data performance, where a traditional HDD typically suffers.With an MSRP of $249.99 and a street price hovering around $200 most of the time, this deal from Tiger Direct at $164.99 is an outright steal. It is also $15 less than the Samsung 830 256GB we featured last week. This model SH103S3/240G also includes the desktop mounting bracket, to enable the 2.5-inch SSD to fit in a desktop 3.5-inch HDD bay.Click here to get this deal from Tiger Direct.

Pays-Bas : des équipes mobiles aident les malades incurables à mourirJeudi, aux Pays-Bas, des équipes mobiles constituées d’un médecin et d’une infirmière ont commencé à se rendre au domicile de malades incurables qui souhaitent mourir afin de les y aider.Alors que l’euthanasie fait encore débat dans de très nombreux pays et qu’elle reste même interdite dans la plupart, c’est une initiative sans pareille qui vient d’être mise en place aux Pays-Bas. Le 1er avril 2002, le pays est en effet devenu le premier à légaliser l’euthanasie mais ce, sous certaines conditions. Celle-ci est autorisée si le patient subit des souffrances “insupportables et interminables” dues à une maladie diagnostiquée par un médecin comme incurable et surtout, il doit en faire la demande en étant toujours en pleine possession de ses moyens. Toutefois, aujourd’hui, certains médecins traitants refusent encore l’euthanasie à leur patient. C’est pourquoi à partir d’aujourd’hui, six équipes mobiles constitués d’un médecin et d’une infirmière ont commencé à sillonner le pays pour se rendre au domicile de malades incurables qui souhaitent mourir mais qui n’ont pas pu y être aidés. “Si les critères sont remplis, les médecins mobiles pourront pratiquer l’euthanasie au domicile de patients dans les cas ou les médecins traitants refusent de le faire ou sont incapables de le faire”, explique à l’AFP Walburg de Jong, porte-parole de l’Association néerlandaise pour une fin de vie volontaire (NVVE) qui a mis en place et finance ce projet baptisé “Clinique de fin de vie”.Les critères requis mentionnent donc que c’est le patient lui-même qui doit en faire la demande, ni sa famille, ni ses proches ne peuvent le faire pour lui. En outre, malade et médecin doivent tous deux être convaincus qu’il n’existe pas de guérison possible et le praticien doit également prendre un second avis médical auprès d’un confrère. En outre, chaque euthanasie pratiquée est soumise à une commission composée d’un médecin, d’un juriste et d’un expert éthique chargée de vérifier si les critères prévus par la loi ont bien été respectés. Une fois ces critères remplis, le malade se voit injecter des somnifères par piqûre ou perfusion, puis des barbituriques. Un cocktail qui finit par arrêter le coeur.Une approche inadaptée selon une association de médecins À lire aussiPourquoi certains s’évanouissent-ils à la vue du sang ?”Soixante-dix personnes ont déjà manifesté leur intérêt”, assure Walburg de Jong. Néanmoins, à terme, celle-ci estime que les médecins devraient pratiquer environ un millier d’euthanasies par an, tandis que quelque 3.100 euthanasies au total sont pratiquées chaque année aux Pays-Bas. Pensé depuis plusieurs mois, le projet a été approuvé par la ministre néerlandaise de la Justice Edith Schippers qui a assuré devant la chambre basse du parlement qu’elle ne s’y opposerait pas étant donné qu’il entre dans le cadre prévu par la loi.”L’association néerlandaise pour une fin de vie volontaire et les équipes ont assuré que tout sera conforme à la législation”, déclare de son côté à l’AFP Ole Heil, le porte-parole de la ministre. Toutefois, le projet suscite tout de même quelques réserves notamment de la part de la Société royale de médecins (KNMG), une association regroupant 53.000 médecins aux Pays-Bas, qui craint que les médecins ne connaissent pas suffisamment les patients pour évaluer correctement leur situation.”Nous ne sommes pas contre l’euthanasie s’il n’y a pas d’autre alternative. Mais l’euthanasie est un processus compliqué, à l’issue d’un traitement à long terme d’un patient, basé sur une relation de confiance. Il faut avoir une approche holistique du traitement du patient et voir notamment s’il existe une alternative à l’euthanasie : nous doutons sérieusement que cela puisse être fait par un médecin uniquement chargé de pratiquer des euthanasies”, commente l’un des responsables de l’association, Eric van Wijlick.Le 1 mars 2012 à 16:23 • Maxime Lambert

Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppPrincess Cruises, operators of the Caribbean Princess cruise ship, have been ordered to pay a $40 million fine in a landmark water pollution case. The fine is the largest ever for crimes related to vessel pollution. Last December, US federal prosecutors charged the Carnival Corporation-owned cruise line with seven felonies for illegally disposing of contaminated water and altering official documents to cover up these actions. The Caribbean Princess, which has over seven Caribbean destinations including TCI and The Bahamas, is one of five Princess cruise ships on which illegal dumping was found to have taken place. The fine includes $10 million for environmental community service programs and a $1 million award to the whistleblower who reported the illegal activity in 2013. The sentence was given last week by US District judge Patricia Seitz in Miami, Florida. The investigation began when the whistleblower recorded supervisors instructing crew members to ignore the ship’s filtration system to cut costs. The dumping occurred off the coasts of England and the US. No reports were made of this illegal activity happening while the ship was docked in the Caribbean region.#MagneticMediaNews#PrincessCruises#waterpollution Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp

We don’t want marijuana in our city.”After watching other cities approve a variety of regulations, Escondido has done the opposite. Approving absolutely nothing, as it pertains to state law.“How’s it feel to be police chief with the toughest pot laws in California? That’s not a bad title, it sounds good, I’m good with that title,” said Escondido Police Chief Craig Carter.Along with passing the toughest pot laws in California, they also modernized the so-called social host ordinance.From now on, parents will be held responsible if they let their kids drink alcohol, smoke pot or take pills at home.Parents could see jail time and a $10,000 fine.“It tends to get their attention, when they see the fine, they think twice about having that party,” Chief Carter said.Outside groups have threatened to come after Escondido. A variety of Cannabis advocates are threatening to make their own laws by using the citizens inititive sometimes called “direct democracy.”“Now that they see these tough laws, I’m sure they’re going to come after us,” Chief Carter said. “They have the right to put it on the ballot, and we fill fight it. Our council and our community will fight it. I chose morality over money,” referring to the lost tax money for the city.One thing the cities can not change, growing plants and possessing pot. Every adult in California has the right to grow six pot plants and possess up to an ounce of pot. No city government can change that part.
