Wimbledon 2017: Martina Navratilova, Pat Cash blast Bernard Tomic after lacklustre lossWimbledon 2017: Martina Navratilova, Pat Cash blast Bernard Tomic after lacklustre loss

first_imgBernard Tomic has faced a barrage of criticism from former players after the 24-year-old Australian said he faced “mental issues” and was bored during his lacklustre loss to Mischa Zverev in the first round at Wimbledon on Tuesday.Tomic was touted as a future major champion in his homeland after winning a slew of boy’s titles, including junior grand slam triumphs at the Australian and U.S. Opens, but his career has stalled and he remains without a title since 2015.Following the 6-3, 6-4, 6-3 loss to Germany’s Zverev, Tomic conducted an unconventional news conference at the All England Club in which he detailed his struggles to stay motivated.Tomic’s attitude irked a lot of his fellow countrymen, including former Wimbledon champion Pat Cash, who said Australians were not pleased with either his performance or his comments.”He can do a lot worse than that to ruin the image that we’ve created. But a lot of ex-players are cringing, Aussies, especially… the guys who started this pro circuit. We wouldn’t be here without these guys,” Cash told the BBC.Australian six-time grand slam doubles champion Rennae Stubbs also expressed her anger at Tomic.”To say the things that he said in the press conference today is a disgrace,” Stubbs said. “You’re an embarrassment to yourself, and not only to the sport but to Australian tennis.”Women’s nine-time Wimbledon winner Martina Navratilova suggested that Tomic’s comments were ungracious and suggested he “stay at home”.”It’s disrespectful to the sport and disrespectful to the history of the sport. If you can’t get motivated at Wimbledon it’s time to find another job,” Navratilova added.advertisement”The spectators paid good money to come here and watch Wimbledon and the guy shows up and doesn’t try, he can’t be bothered. Just stay at home.”Tomic and Tennis Australia have a strained relationship with the player being dropped from previous Davis Cup teams for controversial comments and opinions.last_img read more

More women in RPF to strengthen security for female passengers says PiyushMore women in RPF to strengthen security for female passengers says Piyush

first_imgNew Delhi: In an effort to strengthen the security for women and children while travelling in train, rail ministry will increase the representation of women in Rail Police Force to the level of 10 per cent, Rail Minister Piyush Goyal said in the Rajya Sabha on Friday.According to the ministry data in the last year (2018), 4517 out of 9739 notified vacancies were reserved for women. In a written reply, the minister stressed that policing on railways is a state subject, in terms of prevention of crime, registration of cases, their investigation and maintenance of law and order in railway premises as well as on running trains, which they discharge through Government Railway Police (GRP) or District Police. However, the Railway Protection Force (RPF) supplements the efforts of GRP to provide better protection and security of passenger area and passengers.

Whereas, in 2016 the highest 144,665 were arrested for the same reason. Moreover, the RPF rescued the highest numbers of girl children, 3552 in the last year. Cases of Indian Penal Code (IPC) crime in Railways are registered and investigated by the concerned Government Railway Police. Further, CCTV cameras have been fitted in around 1300 coaches of 100 Mainline passenger trains. For leftover coaches, work for the existing running 58276 trains is sanctioned, Goyal said.

Odyssey of French flavoursOdyssey of French flavours

first_imgWithout a doubt you will have an absolute ‘French’ experience if you visit The Imperial, Delhi in the next four days.The hotel recently celebrated Bastille Day (July 12), which is a symbol of unity for the French. And to extend this celebration, ‘1911 Restaurant’ and ‘Nostalgia at 1911 Brasserie’ made sure to give their visitors an exotic French experience by introducing a very intricately designed, and an elaborate and authentic menu by the Chefs of the hotel. Also Read – An income drop can harm brainThe French meal will take you on an odyssey of ‘French’ flavours, coupled with the best of wines. The food festival, which commenced on July 12, will be on till July 21, at 1911 Restaurant for lunch, and at Nostalgia at 1911 Brasserie for dinner. Highlights of this 10-day-long extravaganza include classic dishes like ‘Terrine de Foie de Volaille au Chutney de Mangue’, ‘Poëlée de St Jacques et Salade de Fenouil aux Agrumes’, ‘Filet de Doré Jaune’, ‘Riz Noir et Beurre Citron’, ‘Île Flottante meringue’, and many others – which are made using traditional French culinary practices. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma AwardOnce you sit at the restaurant, all set to eat the food, the hotel, and its Chefs will make sure that you revel in an array of flavourful appetizers, followed by a line-up of enticing entrée dishes, and delectable hand-crafted desserts, which hold the promise of bringing a joyful closure to your culinary sojourn. Talking about the inspiration behind this food festival, and curating this large menu, Chef Prem K Pogakula, Executive Chef, The Imperial, says, “I have always felt a link in Indian and French food. Just like we Indians serve a plethora of dishes in one ‘thali’, the French people also have the tradition of serving a whole ’17-course meal’, plated in small quantities. But with time, the 17-meal culture lost its essence and has been cut down to a 7-8 course meal. Therefore, here at Imperial, we have tried to bring that culture alive by presenting 16 dishes out of that extensive meal, which also consists of soups.” “Not only serving mannerism, but we also have very closely observed the preparations of traditional French dishes and tried to implement the traditional methods of cooking for this festival,” he adds. Besides the main course dished prepared using special techniques, the menu even consists of very basic elements such as different loaves of bread, cheese, olives, salads, etc. In the festival, French classic appetizers like ‘Terrine de Foie de Volaille au Chutney de Mangue’ (a Chicken liver terrine served with mango chutney), ‘Poëlée de St Jacques et Salade de Fenouil aux Agrumes’ (Pan-fried scallops with fennel and citrus sala), will be served to you. Followed by Entrée dishes including ‘Filet de Doré Jaune’, ‘Riz Noir et Beurre Citron’, ‘Filet de Loup’, ‘Ratatouille et Sauce Vierge’, and more such exotic beloved French dishes will be served on your platter. If you have a sweet tooth, you would not want to miss the very special ‘Île Flottante meringue’, and ‘Poire Belle Hélène’, which will give a sweet ending to your wholesome French meal. As the French cuisine is one of the most admired cuisines in the world, with this festival the hotel takes its guests on an authentic gastronomical journey to celebrate an important but not so popular day. 1911 Restaurant (Lunch buffet) Nostalgia at 1911 Brasserie (A la carte Dinner) INR 7000 + taxes (for two people excluding alcohol)last_img read more

First step in Saskatoons lowemissions plan up for funding decisionFirst step in Saskatoons lowemissions plan up for funding decision

Tank: Saskatoon emissions plan shows steep climate challenge Saskatoon business community skeptical of $19B low-emissions plan City council’s commitment to a controversial $19-billion plan to slash greenhouse gas emissions will be tested today.Council’s governance and priorities committee, which includes all councillors and the mayor, will be asked to consider spending $1.4 million over the next two years to start implementing the plan.Last month, city hall released a four-phase plan with 40 separate initiatives intended to reduce emissions in the community — and by the City of Saskatoon as a corporation — by 80 per cent of 2014 levels over the next three decades.The plan comes with a $19-billion price tag without funding sources identified, but it is projected to eventually result in $33 billion in savings for a net gain of $14 billion.“Taking a proactive approach to climate mitigation infrastructure decreases the risk for emergency or unplanned spending as a consequence of climate change,” says a city report to be considered at today’s meeting.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.The report recommends spending $435,000 next year and $987,000 in 2021 on initiatives that mostly entail planning.Measures included in this approach range from an incentive plan to encourage energy efficient buildings to a strategy to develop renewable energy options.Delaying implementation of the plan beyond 2021 could cost more, the report says.“Accelerating the plan after 2021 is an option, but it becomes more challenging and possibly more costly as the cumulative effect over time of the early initiative is lost with each year of minimal or no action,” says the report, which was written by the city’s sustainability project manager, Hilary Carlson.On Monday, council is also expected to decide on a list of other spending options for the city’s first two-year budget, covering years 2020 and 2021.The administration is not backing any new spending in either of the two years — despite several initiatives council has approved in principle — after a directive from council to lower the projected property tax increase.The property tax increase target for the two years now sits at 3.23 per cent in 2020 and 3.54 per cent in 2021 with final approval set for November.“Limited funding options are currently available,” the report says of money for the low-emissions plan.Separate reports to be considered today detail that $4.1 million is potentially available from a one-time allocation of federal gas tax money of $14.1 million. The other $10 million is committed to funding an organic waste collection program.The city also estimates $4.4 million will be available in a reserve fund for capital projects for which a number of potential candidates are outlined.Earlier this month, council’s environment, utilities and corporate services committee endorsed moving forward with preliminary parts of the plan and consulting residents on it by a 4-1 vote.Council has yet to officially endorse the greenhouse gas emissions plan, but a vote is expected Aug. 26. The plan includes several initiatives, some of which have drawn skepticism, including eventual mandatory solar panels on new homes, more electric vehicles and the purchase of more renewable read more

Get Into the Drone Game With These Entry Level OptionsGet Into the Drone Game With These Entry Level Options

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Drones are one of the latest gadgets that modern geek culture has sort of glommed onto. And what’s not to like? They’re basically the ultimate RC, and we’ve been tinkering for those for… as far as I can remember, at least. But! With the sudden burst in popularity, there’s been a glut of models with tons of different features.Some of that can be confusing. If you want something that can carry a GoPro, you’ll need to look for one with a mount. Most drones are really hard to fly, too — especially once they start getting expensive. And not every drone can be flown immediately. Many, often labeled “BNF” and “ARF” require some additional steps or parts.In the interest of getting you, dear reader, airborne, we’ve gone out and found some of the best drones you can get for under $250. All of these are ready to fly and get our hearty recommendation.DBPOWER UDI U842This machine from DBPOWER comes with a 720p camera that can stream to your phone or tablet via WiFi. Yeah can either live stream or save video for later, plus you can use your device’s accelerometer to steer the drone if you’re not a fan of the controller. This is an ideal drone for people new to the hobby as well. The UDI 842 has a “headless” mode to make control a bit easier. That essentially means that you don’t have to worry about orientation when flying, and the controller will automatically compensate for your inputs to that you don’t have to think about which way the drone is facing relative to you. A small addition, but it can be a huge help for new pilots. If you get really serious, you’ll want to fly without it so that you can get used to it (think of it as the difference between manual and automatic transmission), but if you’re only looking to get into drones as a casual hobby, this makes start-up a lot simpler.Holy Stone F181The F181 from Holy Stone is another fully-loaded quadcopter that’s ready-to-fly. It’s not quite as feature-packed as the U842, but it’s also $50 with most of the same functionality.UDI U818A The signature feature of the U818A from UDIis its VR headset compatibility. With it, you can strap on the Samsung Gear VR or Google’s Dream and feel what it’s like to fly around. Now, I suspect that it’d make just about anyone sick in no time, but if you’ve got an iron stomach, you could well have some unique experiences. The drone also comes with a spare battery to help you get a little bit more flight time.DBPOWER MJX X400WGetting into the more entry-level drones, we have the DBPOWER MJX X400W (insert obligatory “that’s a mouthful”). It’s not going to be as easy to fly or give you quite the same mileage as some of our other entries, but if you’re unsure if drones are for you, $70 is a lot easier to swallow than $160. With that cash, you’ll get everything you need to start flying. This model is ready-to-go out of the box, and it does have some ease-of-use features for newbies, namely gyro stabilization for easier pictures and video capture.Holy Stone F181WHoly Stone is a well-recognized, solid brand in the drone space. And their entry-level piece, the HSF181W could give just about any other quadcopter on this list a run for their money. It comes feature-packed with typically spendy add-ins like altitude hold, so you can easily stabilize the copter and focus on exploring the skies.Coolmade DM009The DM007 Nighthawk is the successor to one of the popular models from any company: the DM007. The product line update includes a dramatically improved motor that cuts down on power draw so you can have longer flights. Combined with the larger battery, this model from Coolmade has more flight time than any other copter on the list with up to 15 minutes. Plus you get two batteries in the box — letting you swap them out quickly to keep flying.last_img read more

Press Talk The Donalds still togetherPress Talk The Donalds still together

first_img Dear Mr. President,OK, OK, those first 100 days were a real mess, right? Look, I know you’re the spin master, and you love to blame absolutely everybody else for your shortcomings, but — come on, sir — it’s beginning to feel more and more like your training for this most important gig is coming from Honey Boo Boo.Let’s hope this second 100 days will be much, much more outstanding, terrific, tremendous. You can begin with fewer adjectives and more complete sentences.Now, before I get into the crux of this letter, I want to be upfront with you, Mr. President. I’m part of the mainstream media. You say you hate us, but I’m pretty sure you secretly admire us. Maybe even love us. I bet if we met, you might want to give me a kiss. No kidding. Hey once — OK, twice — I kissed a politician. How can we be so bad with kissing going on? So less name calling and more smooching. Trust me.But I digress. The point of this letter, Mr. President, is your campaign pledge to drain the swamp. Remember, Mr. President? Sure, you do. And this isn’t like all those other campaign promises you went back on, Mr. President. This was the mother of all pledges, Mr. President. The “This is the big one! You hear that, Elizabeth? I’m coming to see ya, honey!” pledge.Now, Mr. President, I know all about swamps. Heck, I’m a Gator. And frankly, the Everglades could use a good draining. Someone slipped too many dang bad-boy anacondas in there. Speaking of slipping too many bad boys into the swamp (you like that transition, Mr. President?), what, in the name of good governance, were you thinking when you gave Don Benton a job in the federal government?

ASA Welcomes EPA Registration of Enlist Duo HerbicideASA Welcomes EPA Registration of Enlist Duo Herbicide

first_imgThe farmer members of the American Soybean Association (ASA) welcome today’s decision by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to register Dow’s Enlist Duo herbicide for use with Enlist Duo soybeans. The new low-volatility Enlist Duo herbicide will be utilized with Enlist soybeans, when commercialized, to control resistant and difficult to manage weeds. ASA also called upon foreign markets where U.S. soybeans are exported to quickly review and approve these new biotech events so that they can be commercialized here in the United States without jeopardizing export markets and U.S. farmers can realize their benefit.“Today’s registration of Enlist Duo herbicide means that America’s soybean farmers are a step closer to having access to another integral mode of action with which they can fight yield-robbing weeds,” said ASA President and Iowa farmer Ray Gaesser. “We now look to our key export partners to approve this trait so that we can realize the full market potential of this product, without fear of jeopardizing our trading relationships with partially approved traits.”Because of the importance of export markets to U.S. soybean farmers, ASA has had long-standing policy requiring technology providers to seek and obtain approvals in key U.S. soy export markets that have import approval processes before new biotech soybean traits are openly commercialized. ASA works closely with technology companies, other members of the U.S. soy family and value chain, and the U.S. Government to facilitate timely, science-based reviews of new biotech soybean traits both domestically and abroad.last_img read more

Scott Dadich Exits Wired People on the Move — 1417Scott Dadich Exits Wired People on the Move — 1417

Riot games is struggling with sexism and lack of diversity employees planRiot games is struggling with sexism and lack of diversity employees plan

first_imgUpdate as on 6 May, 2019: Riot Games announced early Friday that they will soon start giving new employees the option to opt-out of some mandatory arbitration requirements when they are hired. The catch – The arbitration will initially narrowly focused on a specific set of employees for a specific set of causes. Riot games employees are planning to walkout in protest of the company’s sexist culture and lack of diversity. Riot has been in the spotlight since Kotaku published a detailed report highlighting how five current and former Riot employees filed lawsuits against the company citing the sexist culture that fosters in Riot. Out of the five employees, two were women. Per Kotaku, last Thursday, Riot filed a motion to force two of those women, whose lawsuits revolved around the California Equal Pay Act, into private arbitration. In their motions, Riot’s lawyer argues that these employees waived their rights to a jury trial when they signed arbitration agreements upon their hiring. Private arbitration makes these employees less likely to win against Riot. In November last year, 20,000 Google employees along with Temps, Vendors, and Contractors walked out to protest the discrimination, racism, and sexual harassment encountered at Google’s workplace. This Walkout lead to Google ending forced arbitration for its full-time employees. Google employees are also organizing a phone drive, in a letter published on Medium, to press lawmakers to legally end forced arbitration. Per the Verge, “The employees are organizing a phone bank for May 1st and asking for people to make three calls to lawmakers — two to the caller’s senators and one to their representative — pushing for the FAIR Act, which was recently reintroduced in the House of Representatives.” Following Google, Facebook also made changes to its forced arbitration policy for sexual harassment claims Not only sexual harassment, game developers also undergo unfair treatment in terms of work conditions, job instability, and inadequate pay. In February, The American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO), published an open letter on Kotaku. The letter urges the video game industry workers to unionize and voice their support for better treatment within the workplace. Following this motion, Riot employees have organized to walkout in protest demanding Rio leadership to end force arbitration against the two current employees. This walkout is planned for Monday, May 6. An internal document from Riot employees as seen by Kotaku describes the demands laid out by walkout organizers a clear intention to end forced arbitration, a precise deadline (within 6 months) by which to end it a commitment to not force arbitration on the women involved in the ongoing litigations against Riot. Riot’s sexist culture and lack of diversity The investigation conducted by Kotaku last year unveiled some major flaws in Riot’s culture and in gaming companies, in general. Over 28 current and former Riot employees, spoke to Kotaku with stories that echoed of Riot’s female employees being treated unfairly and being on the receiving end of gender discrimination. An employee named Lucy told Kotaku that on thinking of hiring a woman in the leadership role she heard plenty of excuses for why her female job candidates weren’t Riot material. Some were “ladder climbers.” Others had “too much ego.” Most weren’t “gamer enough.” A few were “too punchy,” or didn’t “challenge convention”, she told Kotaku. She also shared her personal experiences facing discrimination. Often her manager would imply that her position was a direct result of her appearance. Every few months, she said, a male boss of hers would comment in public meetings about how her kids and husband must really miss her while she was at work. Women are often told they don’t fit in the company’s ‘bro culture’; an astonishing eighty percent of Riot employees are men, according to data Riot collected from employees’ driver’s licenses. “The ‘bro culture’ there is so real,” said one female source to Kotaku, who said she’d left the company due to sexism. “It’s agonizingly real. It’s like working at a giant fraternity.” Among other people Kotaku interviewed, stories were told on how women were being groomed for promotions, and doing jobs above their title and pay grade, until men were suddenly brought in to replace them. Another women told Kotaku, “how a colleague once informed her, apparently as a compliment, that she was on a list getting passed around by senior leaders detailing who they’d sleep with.” Two former employees also added that they “felt pressure to leave after making their concerns about gender discrimination known.” Many former Riot employees also refused to come forward to share their stories and refrained from participating in the walkout. For some, this was in fear of retaliation from Riot’s fanbase; Riot is the creator of the popular game League of Legends. Others told that they were restricted from talking on the record because of non-disparagement agreements they signed before leaving the company. The walkout threat spread far enough that it prompted a response from Riot’s chief diversity officer, Angela Roseboro, in the company’s private Slack over the weekend reports Waypoint. In a copy of the message obtained by Waypoint, Roseboro says“ We’re also aware there may be an upcoming walkout and recognize some Rioters are not feeling heard. We want to open up a dialogue on Monday and invite Rioters to join us for small group sessions where we can talk through your concerns, and provide as much context as we can about where we’ve landed and why. If you’re interested, please take a moment to add your name to this spreadsheet. We’re planning to keep these sessions smaller so we can have a more candid dialogue.” Riot CEO Nicolo Laurent also acknowledged the talk of a walkout in a statement “We’re proud of our colleagues for standing up for what they believe in. We always want Rioters to have the opportunity to be heard, so we’re sitting down today with Rioters to listen to their opinions and learn more about their perspectives on arbitration. We will also be discussing this topic during our biweekly all-company town hall on Thursday. Both are important forums for us to discuss our current policy and listen to Rioter feedback, which are both important parts of evaluating all of our procedures and policies, including those related to arbitration.” Tech worker union, Game workers unite, Googlers for ending forced arbitration have stood up in solidarity with Riot employees. “Forced arbitration clauses are designed to silence workers and minimize the options available to people hurt by these large corporations” “Employees at Riot Games are considering a walkout, and the organization efforts has prompted an internal response from company executives”, tweeted Others have also joined in support.
