Hughton We deserved more

first_imgBrighton manager Chris Hughton believes his side at least a point in their 2-0 loss at Bournemouth on Saturday.David Brooks’ brace was the difference on Saturday as 10-men Brighton succumbed to their third Premier League defeat in a row.Despite feeling hard done by, Hughton admitted his side failed to utilize their chances in the game.“I thought we were good value to get something from the game.

It was very difficult towards the end when we were down to ten men, but certainly, before that, I thought we were always in the game.“It was a wonderful strike by Brooks for the first goal, but I thought we created really good chances of our own.“If you don’t put your chances away, then you know that a very good Bournemouth side that plays with a lot of pace, with two players up front that run in behind, is going to cause you problems.“The chances are the pinnacle moments of any game, but on the balance of play, I thought we deserved more.”last_img read more

Sensex slumps 250 points ahead of Bihar election results

first_imgThe S&P BSE Sensex fell sharply by 248 points on Thursday, declining to the levels not seen in more than a month, as investors remained nervous ahead of counting for the Bihar assembly elections on 8 November.The Sensex closed at 26,304 points, down 0.94%, while the 50-share Nifty fell 85 points, or 1.05%, to end at 7,955.”Failure to sustain above 8,100 has reinforced weakness across the board. Selling pressure was felt across sectors with deterioration of market breadth, which is a cause of concern. Traders are advised to be cautious and selective in their stock selection even though valuations may seem relatively attractive,” said Amar Ambani, Head of Research, IIFL.The five-phase Bihar election, which ended on 5 November, is being seen as a referendum for the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. While some exit poll surveys are predicting a win for the NDA, others are saying that the mahagathbandan led by JD (U) could win by a slender margin due to the effective campaign by incumbent chief minister and JD(U) leader Nitish Kumar. The fairly reliable of all the exit polls – Today’s Chanakya – has given the BJP-led NDA a clear majority of 155 seats and 85 to the Mahagathbandan (Grand Alliance).”Market is falling in anxiety to the Bihar exit poll prediction today. Bihar has 16 Rajya Sabha seats of which only 5 seats will retire in 2016 and this will not having any material impact on ruling government’s majority. This is unlikely to revamp the central governments capex of reforms going forward but only a sentimental impact in the near-term,” Vinod Nair, Head-Fundamental Research, Geojit BNP Paribas Financial Services, told Business Standard.The sell-off was also led by growing hints over interest rate hike by the US central bank, which is a major negative for emerging markets like India.In her Congressional testimony, the US Federal Reserve chairperson Janet Yellen on Wednesday hinted at monetary tightening next month.”Following the relatively hawkish October FOMC statement and yesterday’s signals from Fed Chair Yellen and her two top lieutenants Fischer and Dudley reinforcing expectations of a December rate hike, the threshold for Fed lift-off seems rather low,” said Nordea Markets in a note.Renewed concerns over the US Fed rate hike in December have impacted global markets, with China’s Shanghai Composite index and Hong Kong’s Hang Seng falling by 0.25% and 0.7%, respectively.All the BSE sectoral indices ended lower, with Realty, Healtcare, Bankex and IT as the top losers.Reliance Capital (up 1.3%), NTPC (up 0.7%), Hero Motocorp (up 0.7%), ITC (up 0.4%) and Hindustan Unilever (up 0.2%) were the top gainers among the Sensex stocks, while DLF (down 5.1%), Tata Steel (down 4.2%), BHEL (down 3.3%), Bharti Airtel (down 2.8%) and SBI (down 2.1%) ended as biggest losers.On the commodities front, gold prices fell to Rs 180 to Rs 26,250 per 10 gram on the back of firmer US dollar. Silver prices also dropped by Rs 320 to Rs 35,750 per kg.Today’s Chanakyalast_img read more

Swim Coachs Fiancée Pushes on After Homicide

first_imgJamese Harvey was engaged to marry Zaan Scott, a well-known community swim instructor, before he was shot and wounded on April 9 in Southeast, Washington, D.C. On May 17, Scott, 24, died from his injuries and on June 26 authorities determined the death was a homicide.Zaan Scott and his fiancée Jamese Harvey. (Courtesy Photo)According to the Metropolitan Police Department, Scott was shot in the back around 9:08 p.m. in the 1300 Block of Southern Avenue, SE. Police said they received reports of an aggravated assault in the area and found Scott suffering from a gunshot wound upon their arrival. Scott was transported to a local hospital for treatment. The violent incident left him paralyzed.“I’m excited to give him some type of legal justice,” Harvey said. “I want him to rest beautifully.”Officials said they are still searching for suspects involved in the fatal shooting. “The investigation into this case is still active,” a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police Department, Karimah Bilal, told the AFRO on June 27. “However preliminary information suggests the motive stemmed from a robbery.”Loved ones of Scott describe the swim coach at William H. Rumsey Aquatic Center on Capitol Hill as humble and kind. Scott’s fiancée told the AFRO on June 28 that she had been in a relationship with Scott for more than two years, after meeting at a staff meeting at the aquatic center.“We did everything together,” Harvey said.Harvey, 25, hasn’t returned to her job as a lifeguard at the Wilson Aquatic Center in Northwest D.C. since Scott’s death, because, she said, her job as a rescuer is now too difficult. Scott was released from the hospital and was recovering at home when he died. Harvey said she performed CPR on Scott on May 17 for 20 minutes trying to save him before he was taken to the hospital, “[After that] you are done saving lives,” she cried.Harvey grew up in foster care in Southeast D.C., and although she still lives in the area she no longer feels safe and it’s a constant reminder of Scott. “I’m ready to start over,” she said. “I can’t even take a walk without crying.”According to Harvey, on April 9, she and Scott both had the day off work. Scott went to a baseball game with some friends, and was planning to have dinner with Harvey afterwards. Scott was walking home when he was shot.She said officers were quick to respond to the crime scene, but there was a discussion between Prince George’s County Police and D.C. Police about the jurisdiction of the shooting. The sidewalk where Scott was shot is in Southeast, D.C., but it was along the border with Prince George’s County, Harvey said.“Officers on both sides need to be proactive,” she said. Harvey said police presence in violent areas may have increased, but it would be helpful if there were more patrol officers riding bikes or walking the streets, instead of sitting in patrol cars. “Police officers are not rescue ready,” she said.According to Harvey, Scott grew up in and out of shelters in D.C. and was very close to his grandparents. Harvey plans to launch a foundation for sheltered young men in honor of Scott.last_img read more

LIVING FOR THE WEEKEND

first_img“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world… There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you… and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” Marianne WilliamsonFrom the day God created Eve, women have become change agents in a world of change.

One morning in the life of some Indians

first_imgKalu Miyan heard the good news from Rameshwar when he was sitting under a tree near the canal. For early morning rituals the villagers use this part of the grazing ground. Men come little after sunrise. By then the women return. Neither Kalu Miyan nor Ramu Chacha is aware that their village is among those in the country that has stopped open defecation. They had heard that the few broken bricks stacked in the corner of the village will eventually become the village toilet. They heard that some Babus (government functionaries) from the town had come to their village one day before these bricks were laid. That was before the rains came, and Ramu helped Kalu Miyan to till his land. Also Read – Gateway of criminal justiceBoth Kalu Miyan and Ramu Chacha sat on a light bedstead with Pavan, their village elder and heard on the radio the Pradhan Mantri from Delhi mentioning something about Swachh Bharat. Pavan, who knows some Babus in the town, told them that their village will have toilets. Villagers know that any construction takes time. The bridge on the canal has been under construction for some time. Ramu remembers that it had started when his youngest son Chhotu was born. Now Chhotu is living in Begusarai, some 50 km away from the village. He goes to school, where there are no classes. The boy, now ten years old, works at a shop and earns a livelihood. Also Read – Turning a blind eyeRamu Chacha has a radio on his phone. He bought it recently from the money he received in his bank account after the Babus came and opened bank accounts about a year back. In the past, only well off persons, such as Kalu Miyan and Pavan had ever visited a bank. Ramu and his family were elated when for the first time they entered a bank. One year before the bank Babus came for account-opening, they had gone to the local Panchayat in a village just a few kilometers north, to get themselves photographed and get their fingerprints registered. Their eyes were also tested. The Babus told them that all these details would be printed on a card that would come from the post office. Pavan told all of them to keep that card (called Aadhar) safely. But that was used only once when the bank Babus came. Ramu Chacha heard on the radio that the Bara Adalat (Supreme Court) in Delhi has now addressed their concern. It is unknown to Ramu and his fellow villagers that the Aadhar card is wrong. It is wrong because all their information is stored on that card. But Ramu could not follow what was wrong in it. The details of the money that helped him buy the radio was also stored on that card.Gagan, son of his elder brother, knows many things. He even goes to towns to walk with political Babus. Gagan explained to Ramu Chacha what privacy is and how the Aadhar system was breaching his privacy. Not only Ramu, but all villagers must thank the Bara Adalat for securing their right to privacy. This is what Rameshwar explained to Kalu Miyan while relieving himself in the fields. Maybe Kalu Miyan was suffering from constipation and did not seem thankful to the Bara Adalat.When Kalu Miyan and Ramu Chacha were busy in a remote village in the morning, it was time for the senior Sarkari Sahib (government official) to get ready for work. He had just returned from his morning walk and barely had any time left to glance through the newspaper. He must reach office now before nine – a trouble that started when Narendra Modi came to New Delhi from Gandhinagar. Not only must he reach office on time, but there are also new slogans nowadays – “Make in India” and Ease of Doing Business. What hurts the senior Babu more is that his boss, Mr. Burden Remove Boast travels the world, gets photographed with Modi, tweets his achievements, and sends all papers to him, the Hump Ahmed. When well-paid officers from foreign companies visit him, the poor man has little option and maintains a smiling face. Like the man who laughs poor Hump can never express his problems to anybody.On his table is a proposal for a big MNC, which is keen to venture out in the Indian market. As such there is no issue now that the confusing language kept in the notification has been done away with few months back. The Sahib knows of the brand and uses the same given to him by the Indian franchise of the company. The issue is one of level playing field. If the MNC opens its store, the poor Indian franchise will lose his revenue. Shouldn’t the Government act as a guardian for the Indian business person? Instead, the Prime Minister is busy going abroad and talking to these MNCs.But Hump Sahib knows how not to bend easily. He has to ensure fairness for all. Leaders come and go, but Sahibs are constant. What can the leaders do without the Sahibs? And what is the incentive Hump Sahib may receive from the MNC? A mere thank you, one supposes. Now Hump Sahib is not interested in easing it anymore; let the Prime Minister keep shouting his Mann Ki Baat.By the time Kalu Miyan and Ramu Chacha were ready to tend to their respective fields, and Hump Sahib had finished his second cup of coffee brought by his servant, it was time for anchor Rubbish Desai to call his stringer in Bihar. Rubbish wanted a big breaking story on how Modi’s Swatch Bharat data on toilets were rigged and how Kalu Miyan, Ramu Chacha, et al. were still using the village green. He has also lined up the well-known guest who will explain how this Government manipulates all information with active support from the highest office. Meanwhile, Rubbish receives a call from his reporter from the capital. The young lady has access to a senior Sahib, who tells her how the Government is slowly killing the Indian entrepreneurs to promote MNCs. With two news night top stories frozen, Rubbish went for his lunch at Machan where there is a Tunisian food festival to celebrate this year’s Nobel Prize. (The views expressed are strictly personal)last_img read more

Also Read – Bose & Gandhi: More similar than apart, says Sugata BoseDuring covert survey, sleuths were sure about Mondal’s involvement in arms dealing. Late on Thursday night SOG of Baruipur Police and police personnel from Joynagar police station conducted a joint raid on Mondal’s kerosene shop and found two persons were about to ink a deal. One of them was Mondal. The other accused was identified as Abdul Rouf Laskar of Kashipur in South 24-Parganas. During search operations, sleuths found two long range firearms and 90 rounds of live bullets. Also 55 rounds of bullet shell were seized.

They have been booked under the Arms Act. It is suspected that Mondal is nothing but an agent in the arms dealing racket. Sleuths are trying to identify the mastermind of the racket by interrogating him. Earlier, South 24-Parganas Police had busted an arms racket and seized nearly 15 firearms, including 10 pipe guns, were seized from a car during a raid on the Eastern Metropolitan Bypass near Sonarpur area during August last year.last_img read more

How to Stay Wired on a Business Trip

first_img Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Register Now » Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. November 23, 2010 10 min read Travel used to be about getting away from it all, but these days even leisure travelers don’t want to leave the Web and their smartphones, tablets, or laptops behind. And staying powered up and connected on business trips is too important to leave to chance.A little bit of advance planning and research can help you stay up and running no matter where you go. Here are our tips for minimizing tech hassles when you’re on the road.Find the Best of EverythingThere’s a reason seasoned travelers want to stay connected, and it isn’t just to manage e-mail. The Web is an incredible resource for researching hotels, restaurants, shopping, and anything else you need to know when visiting a place you’ve never been to before.Try checking the regional boards on Chow.com or Yelp.com to find a good restaurant, for example. Once you’ve chosen a place, use a mapping app to help you get there. Buy tickets online for trains, theatrical productions, or popular museum exhibitions. Location-based apps like Foursquare can even send a timely coupon your way. Staying connected can really help you get away from it all in style.Fly the Tech-Friendly SkiesAirlines in recent years have taken to technology to help cut costs and long lines. Most will let you check in online up to 24 hours before departure and print your own boarding passes. This gives you the opportunity to select seats and, in some cases, get upgrades at a cut rate: Virgin America, for example, offers any unsold business class seats for drastically reduced rates within a day of departure.With some airlines and on some flights, you can even skip the printing part by using a smartphone to access the bar code that is scanned in at the departure gate. If this option is available, the airline will typically let you opt to have the boarding pass sent to your smartphone when you check in online (instead of printing it out). What you’ll get on the phone is a link to a Web page with your unique bar code.This eliminates the risk of losing a printed pass, but be careful: You might run into other problems. What if poor connectivity at the airport prevents you from accessing the page? You could opt to save an image of the page as a screen shot, but now you still have to worry about keeping the phone charged. And we’ve also seen reports of problems trying to scan in an image on a cell phone screen. Still, the technology is coming into wider use and will doubtless improve over time.Airborne InternetSeveral airlines now offer Aircell’s GoGo Wi-Fi-based inflight Internet service (you can find a list of participating airlines on Gogo’s website). And there’s good news for holiday travelers this year: Thanks to a promotion with Google Chrome, GoGo service on the three airlines that have it on all their flights — AirTran, Delta, and Virgin America — will be free between November 20 and January 2.However, no Internet service is available on flights across the Atlantic or Pacific oceans — at least not yet. GoGo connects through Aircell’s network of cell towers on terra firma. A company called Row 44 has launched a satellite-based service — Southwest offers it on a handful of flights — but the verdict is out on how well it works. With a satellite-based service, it wouldn’t matter if the plane were over land or sea (the late lamented Connexion by Boeing was satellite-based).Whether or not you can get online, it’s nice to have electrical power for your notebook or portable DVD player, especially on long-haul flights where work or gaming can really make the time speed by. Sadly, power outlets aren’t very common outside of business class, and on some airlines you need special adapters to plug in.But you can investigate the options in detail on Seat Guru, a great resource for all sorts of information about the amenities on different airlines and airplanes. Start by reading Seat Guru’s guide to in-seat laptop power, which has links to comparison charts showing which airlines and planes have outlets. In many cases some, but not all, seats have easy access to power outlets. So it pays to click through to the seating charts for the airlines and planes you’re considering: Seat Guru shows exactly which seats have outlets and which don’t.Stay ChargedFinding a power outlet at an airport can be a challenge. Fortunately, more are adding charging stations in waiting areas. But what if you find one and it’s already fully occupied? If you carry a multioutlet travel power strip and surge protector with you (for example, the Targus Travel 4-Outlets Surge Suppressor), you can usually talk someone who is connected into letting you hook up the travel strip so that you, that person, and maybe a couple of others can all charge from the single outlet.Because more and more devices come with built-in transformers, you shouldn’t have to worry about whether you’re in a country with AC or DC. But outlets still do vary from country to country, so make sure you have appropriate plug adapters. This is especially tricky if your device uses a three-prong plug, since some adapters accommodate only two prongs and not the third, ground prong. This is something you should check for before you buy plug adapters.A couple of vendors offer configurable plug adapters that you can use in several countries. While they’re rather bulky, buying one can be preferable to having to load up several different adapters if you’re going to be visiting countries that use different types of plugs.That travel power strip mentioned earlier can also save you from having to buy lots of plug adapters: Use one to plug the strip into the wall, and then you can plug in four of your devices without other special gear. The strips can also come in handy in hotel rooms that have skimped on free outlets.Alternatively, you can bring a power extender with you, such as ones made by iGo Charge Anywhere and those from Targus. These are basically like batteries into which you can plug a notebook and maybe one or two other devices. You charge the block by plugging it into a standard wall outlet; extenders typically come with adapters for use in automobile and airline charging ports as well.Extenders can power a wide variety of products: You simply swap out the tip of the charging cable for one that supports your device. Of course, you have to make sure to buy the right tips for the devices you own.Automotive adapters for your smartphone and/or laptop are invaluable aids if you plan to be driving around a lot. Fortunately, these seem to be standardized around the globe, so you don’t need different ones for different countries. If you use a lot of devices that charge via USB cables, you could also buy a car charger with multiple USB ports. Or, if you have several devices that each have their own automobile car charger, you can get a charger that has multiple car charger ports. Magnadyne even sells a car charger that has two USB ports and two automotive ports.Get Online AnywhereHigh-speed Internet access has become fairly ubiquitous in hotels, and not just major chains. You can usually check online to see if an establishment offers Internet access, but your research shouldn’t stop there. Find out if the service is via Wi-Fi or ethernet, and whether it’s included with the room charge or costs extra (some places charge $10 to $20 a day).If you’re traveling with a companion, you might also find out whether there’s any problem with two people from the same room using Wi-Fi. And if you’re stuck with a wired connection, you can probably share it with others by using a travel router to create a hot spot. Several vendors offer small, compact routers that support 802.11g; Trendnet’s TEW-654TR (about $50) is one of the first to back the faster 802.11n standard.Wi-Fi isn’t always available where you need it, however. Today’s 3G and, depending on your location, 4G cell phone data networks offer much better coverage, and a mobile broadband Wi-Fi router lets you (and several friends or colleagues) tap into them with any Wi-Fi device. Novatel Wireless’s MiFi routers are barely larger than a credit card; currently you can get one for $100 with a Verizon Wireless data plan, or $150 for use with Virgin Mobile’s pay-as-you go service.You can also get unlocked MiFi models for use with GSM networks. The latter cost $230, and you have to make your own arrangements for data plans and SIM cards. Unfortunately, you can’t use the same MiFi router in both North America and Europe — each continent’s 3G (HSPA) networks operate on different frequencies, so Novatel Wireless has different models for Europe and for North America.Sprint, meanwhile, has a Sierra Wireless broadband modem that supports both its 3G and 4G services, and several of its new 4G smartphones can also double as hotspots, although using them for that purpose may cut battery life more than you’d like.A company called Cradlepoint makes a Wi-Fi router that’s meant for use with any activated USB Wi-Fi modem. However, not all modems work with the device, so check to see if yours is on the supported list.If you’re a fairly infrequent solo traveler, you might want to investigate pay-as-you-go mobile broadband options such as the aforementioned Virgin Mobile offering. In Europe, Vodafone offers inexpensive USB modems that you can use on Vodafone networks in most countries on a pay-as-you-go basis. The pay-as-you-go service, however, typically runs about $15 to $20 a day and often has bandwidth usage caps.That isn’t cheap, but international roaming with a smartphone can be incredibly expensive. If you do want to use a GSM-based smartphone overseas, look into prepaid international roaming plans. AT&T sells them in various sizes, from $25 for 20MB to $200 for 200MB. Without a plan, you pay $0.0195 per kilobyte, which comes to $19.50 for a single megabyte.Check the Hotel’s Business CenterHotels love to attract business travelers, and more and more of them offer well-equipped business centers as bait. Many let you use computers and printers for free, or for a nominal charge. For Internet junkies, using a business center computer lacks the appeal of being able to fire up a laptop in the comfort of your room. However, if you just want to write a few e-mail messages without having to use a tiny smartphone keyboard, then a computer in the business center or the lobby can be a godsend. Some hotels also have lobby stations that you can use to check in to a flight and print out a boarding pass.But be cautious in using a public PC. Try to find a machine that reboots and cleans up between guests; you don’t want your accounts hacked because you left login information or cookies behind. Ask a manager about security if you’re in doubt. Brought to you by PCWorldlast_img read more
