Real Kashmir FC jump to third sport with 6-1 win over Shillong Lajong

first_imgSrinagar, Dec 11 (PTI) Abednedo Kofi struck twice as debutnats Real Kashmir FC hammered Shillong Lajong FC 6-1 to jump to the third spot in the Hero I-League, here on Tuesday as their run of six continuous home matches came to a roaring end. With their fourth win out of seven games, Kashmir soared to third on the points table, level with second-placed Churchill Brothers on points but a tad behind on goal difference. Kashmir’s goals were scored by Ghanaian forward Kofi, Mason Robertson, Nagen Tamang, Gnohere Krizo and Surchandra Singh. Samuel Lyngdoh got Shillong’s lone goal as the Meghalaya outfit remained at 10th place after eight games with just four points to show for their efforts. The home team’s Scottish coach David Robertson fielded an unchanged side while Alison Kharsyntiew made two changes to the side which started against Neroca in the previous game which they lost. Hardy Cliff Nongbri and Sheen Stevenson made starts while Awmpuia and Nabin Rabha started on the bench. Nagen Tamang got the first chance of the game as early as the third minute when he hit straight to keeper Neithovilie Chalieu from close. In the 25th minute, Ivorian beanpole striker Krizo bulldozed his way past two defenders into the Shillong box from the left and squared it beautifully for Ghanaian Abednedo Kofi, who tapped it past Neitho for it to go in, getting a touch off defender Rakesh Pradhan on its way. It was Kofi’s first goal in Kashmir colours.advertisement Three minutes later, Shillong got a fortuitous equaliser when Aibanbha’s long ball from deep inside the Shillong half was finding its way harmlessly towards Kashmir keeper Bilal, but his first-time clearance struck a chasing Samuel Lyngdoh and entered the Kashmir net. It was the coach’s son Mason Robertson who then put the hosts ahead once again in the 37th minute when off a Surchandra Singh corner, he rose to connect with a perfect header to beat Neitho and bulge the Shillong net. Kashmir extended their lead further in the 42nd minute when Bazie Armand caught Shillong on the break and made a run forward. He found Kofi on the left flank who played ahead to Nagen Tamang who had got inside the box with a good run. The Kurseong forward controlled the ball, turned to face the goal and curled a right-footer past Neitho into the far corner for his first in a Kashmir yellow as well. After an entertaining first half, Krizo almost added a fourth at the beginning of the second when a snapshot from him beat Neitho and hit the bar, just two minutes into the half. Off the resulting corner, however, Krizo did find his second goal of the campaign, as Kashmir were awarded a penalty when Aibhan was adjudged to have brought down Krizo inside the box. The Ivorian easily beat Neitho with his calmly taken spot-kick for Kashmir’s fourth goal of the game. In the 74th minute, Shillong’s net bulged again, this time thanks to a ferocious Surchandra Singh strike. Nagem Tamang initiated the move from the left and after a deft 1-2 with Kofi found himself deep inside the Shillong box. His attempted cross deflected off the Shillong defence and the loose ball fell for Surchandra who nailed it for his second of the league this season. With the game done and dusted coach Robertson gave all his top players, Surchandra, Nagen Tamag and Krizo a well-deserved rest and gave local players and stars of their successful second division campaign last year like Basheer, Ritwik Kumar Das and Danish. Shahnawaz claimed an assist just moments after coming on when his cross from the left was neatly headed in by Kofi on the near post to make it his second and half a dozen for Kashmir from the game. While the massive win will keep Kashmir confident as they head on to the road for nearly two months, Shillong will have to get back to the drawing board for some serious introspection, having leaked 22 goals in the league so far.

RCMP seeks cause of illnesses suffered by Canadian diplomats in Cuba Official

first_imgOTTAWA – Eight Canadians required followup medical care after diplomats and family members in Cuba suffered unexplained ailments, a senior Global Affairs official says.A total of 27 people from 10 diplomatic families underwent testing when some complained of dizziness, nosebleeds or headaches — symptoms that developed amid concern about possible acoustic attacks.There is no indication anyone has suffered permanent damage and the eight who needed additional care have since returned to work or school, the official said Wednesday at a media briefing.The RCMP is leading a government-wide investigation into the illnesses, which remain a mystery, he said.Canada is working with the United States — many of whose personnel in Havana also took ill — and Cuban authorities to try to solve the puzzle.The United States appears to be no closer to finding answers.The Canadian official spoke to the media on condition he not be identified, an effort by Global Affairs to shed light on the odd occurrences without compromising privacy of the families or security in Cuba.Cuba seems as baffled by all of this as Canada and the U.S., he said. The island nation welcomes about 1.2 million Canadian tourists a year, and therefore has real incentive to get to the bottom of the issue.Last April, U.S. representatives in Havana asked the Canadian and other embassies if staff had been hearing any strange sounds or experiencing medical symptoms.Some American diplomats had reported such symptoms since December 2016. In May 2017, a number of Canadian staff came forward.Recently declassified memos show the federal government sent a doctor to Havana in June to examine diplomats and family members. The visit by Dr. Jeffrey Chernin of Health Canada revealed symptoms similar to those experienced by U.S. staff.Word of the perplexing phenomenon started percolating publicly during the summer, fuelling theories about the cause of the illnesses. Sonic attacks, contaminated air or water and even persistent noise from crickets have been floated as possibilities.The notion of some kind of auditory assault stemmed from the fact U.S. personnel complained of hearing a high-pitched sound before experiencing symptoms. This has been less of a factor with the Canadians.Canada is conducting environmental assessments of its embassy and all diplomatic residences. It has also stepped up security measures in conjunction with the Cuban government.The United States brought many diplomats home from Havana last year and expelled Cuban representatives from Washington.In August, Ottawa acknowledged that an unspecified number of Canadians in Cuba had been affected.The official said Wednesday that three diplomatic families had returned to Canada out of concern about the strange illnesses. Two of these families had experienced symptoms.But staff levels at the mission in Cuba remain at usual levels, as some new diplomats — fully apprised of the medical issues — have arrived in Havana, the official said.Most of the cases involving Canadians developed in May, though there were separate incidents in August and December of individuals feeling strong waves of pressure, he added.At this point, Global Affairs has no reason to believe that Canadian tourists could be at risk.— Follow @JimBronskill on Twitterlast_img read more

Annan saddened by toll of latest tsunami UN agency assesses warning system

“The Secretary-General is saddened by the loss of life and damages provoked by the tsunami that struck the Indonesian island of Java on 17 July, and the trauma being experienced by the survivors due to the series of aftershocks, shaking parts of the island,” Mr. Annan’s spokesman said in a formal statement. According to UNESCO, the Indian Ocean warning system established after the deadly tsunami of 2004 was able to quickly alert national authorities of the danger of giant waves following Monday’s earthquake, but hundreds of people were still swept away because the alarm did not reach the coast in time.“It is important to maintain the momentum of the past 18 months and to reinforce national capacities to react effectively when such disasters strike,” Koïchiro Matsuura, UNESCO Director General said, urging Indian Ocean nations to extend the system “the final mile to the people on the coast.”The Warning System was established by States in the region with UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission after an earthquake off Indonesia’s island of Sumatra in December 2004 generated waves that killed more than 230,000 people in more than 12 Asian countries.So far, 26 out of a possible 29 national tsunami warning centres, capable of receiving and distributing tsunami advisories around the clock, have been set up in Indian Ocean countries. The seismographic network has been improved, with 25 new stations being deployed that will be linked in real-time to analysis centres.There are, UNESCO said, also three deep-ocean assessment and reporting sensors and the Commission for the Nuclear-Test Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) is also contributing data from seismographic stations. Yesterday, as a result of all these preparations, in Indonesia’s capital Jakarta, the tsunami advisory was received only 19 minutes after the earthquake, Mr Matsuura said. “However, several hundred people still lost their lives and tens of thousands more have lost their homes and livelihoods. The system still has big gaps, notably in getting the warnings to coastal communities in time,” he concluded.The Indian Ocean System constitutes a vital component of a global system, towards which the UNESCO group has been working. To this end, warning systems are also being established in the North East Atlantic, Mediterranean and Adjoining Seas, and the Caribbean, while protection is being reinforced in the Pacific and South China Sea. read more

Circus lionized for cutting animal acts will bring them back

In this May 1, 2014 photo, tigers perform at the opening night of the Melha Shrine Circus at the Eastern States Coliseum in West Springfield, Mass. After earning praise from animal rights groups for dropping animal performances in 2016, the Melha Shrine Circus will bring back the animal acts for seven performances over four days in May 2017. (David Molnar/The Republican via AP) BOSTON – A circus is under fire for bringing back animal acts a year after earning praise from animal rights groups for dropping them to keep up with changing public attitudes.The Melha Shrine Circus, which has seven performances over four days scheduled for May in western Massachusetts, brought back performing elephants, tigers and dogs because that’s what people want, circus chairman Allen Zippin said.The circus, which raises money for the fraternal organization’s charitable endeavours — including the Shriners Hospitals for Children in Springfield — lost money for the first time in its 63-year history in 2016.“Paid attendance was down 6,500 people last year,” when compared to 2015, he said. “We had people asking for refunds after finding out there were no animals.”Animal rights activists have been pressuring circuses to drop animal acts for years, saying the acts are cruel and inhumane.The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus retired its iconic elephant act last spring. Months later, the nation’s most famous circus announced it would close for good this year after almost a century and a half in business.Although several reasons for the demise were cited, the end of the elephant act and changing public attitudes about animal-based entertainment were among them.Circuses, whether commercial or charitable, don’t need animals to thrill, said Sheryl Becker, who started an online petition to get the Melha Shriners to drop animal acts. There are plenty of circuses that don’t have them, including Cirque du Soleil and Circus Smirkus. Some other Shriners-sponsored circuses have stopped hiring animal acts, said Becker, who is president of Western Massachusetts Animal Rights Advocates.Her petition had more than 66,000 signatures as of Friday.Becker loves the Shriners and supports their mission wholeheartedly, but thinks hiring animal acts to perform in the circus tarnishes their image.Her late father was a Shriner who took her to the Melha Shrine Circus as a child. Like most kids, she was enamoured with the animals. But her attitude changed in her early teens.She says the animals are treated inhumanely, housed in cramped conditions and receive inadequate veterinary care.“It is fear itself that makes these animals do these stupid and degrading tricks,” she said.People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals had praised the Melha Shriners last year, but the group was quick to condemn the return of animal acts.“The decision to bring back animals is foolish, short-sighted and out of touch,” said Rachel Mathews, PETA’s associate director of captive animal law enforcement.Forcing animals to perform “confusing and uncomfortable” tricks sends the wrong message to the very people the circus is trying to entertain.“All it does is teach kids that it’s OK to bully and subjugate,” she said.Zippin said he appreciates the important watchdog role animal rights groups perform. The Shriners, he said, take great care to ensure that the acts they hire treat their animals with love and care.He said he even envisions a day when animal acts will be eliminated from all circuses. by Mark Pratt, The Associated Press Posted Feb 20, 2017 10:47 pm MDT Last Updated Feb 21, 2017 at 9:20 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Circus lionized for cutting animal acts will bring them back read more

Floridians assess Irmas wreckage as death toll mounts

(Reuters) Hurricane Irma evacuees from the Florida Keys began returning to the storm-ravaged island chain yesterday to find homes ripped apart and businesses coated in seaweed amid a debris-strewn landscape where an estimated 25 percent of all dwellings were destroyed.A local resident reacts as she sees the damage on her home after Hurricane Irma struck Florida, in Islamorada Key, U.S., September 12, 2017. REUTERS photoThe death toll from Irma, previously ranked as one of the most powerful Atlantic storms on record and the second major hurricane to strike the U.S. mainland this season, climbed to 43 in the Caribbean, with at least 13 more killed in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina.Some of those died from accidents during cleanup and repair efforts.Destruction was widespread in the Keys, a resort archipelago stretching southwest from the tip of the Florida Peninsula into the Gulf of Mexico and connected by a single, narrow highway and a series of bridges and causeways along a nearly 100-mile (160-km) route.“I don’t have a house. I don’t have a job. I have nothing,” said Mercedes Lopez, 50, whose family fled north from the Florida Keys town of Marathon last Friday and rode out the storm at an Orlando hotel, only to learn their home was destroyed, along with the gasoline station where he worked.“We came here, leaving everything at home, and we go back to nothing,” Lopez said. His and three other families from Marathon planned to venture back today to salvage what they can.Initial damage assessments found 25 percent of homes in the Keys destroyed and 65 percent with major damage, according to Brock Long, administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).“Basically every house in the Keys was impacted,” he told reporters.The islands were largely evacuated by the time Irma barreled ashore on Sunday as a Category 4 hurricane, packing sustained winds of up to 130 miles per hour (215 km per hour).Two days later authorities began allowing re-entry to the islands of Key Largo, Tavernier and Islamorada for residents and business owners only. The extent of the devastation took many by surprise.“I expected some fence lines to be down and some debris,” said Dr. Orlando Morejon, 51, a trauma surgeon from Miami as he hacked away at a tree blocking his Islamorada driveway. “We were not expecting to find someone else’s sailboat in our backyard.”The walls of nearby trailer homes were left ripped wide open, exposing insulation and the sodden interiors of bedrooms and kitchens to the elements.At the Caloosa Cove Resort and Marina, concrete pilings meant to hold the dock in place had been knocked sideways, and three manatees lolled in the water, drinking from an outflow pump spitting water from the dockside.Marilyn Ramos, 44, spent the morning cleaning sand and seaweed that had covered her Cuban restaurant Havanos when she arrived early yesterday.“I’m trying to stay calm and see how we can work through this,” Ramos said. “It’s devastating.”A short distance away, the scent of decaying seaweed hung heavy in the air as Brooke Gilbert, 15, stood with her younger sister staring at the jumble of concrete and twisted metal left from the three-story condo that was their family’s getaway home.“There’s the couch right there,” she said. “I recognize the clothes in that closet. They belong to my grandmother.”At the end of Islamorada, roughly the halfway point of the Keys, police at a checkpoint turned around returning residents seeking to travel farther south and waved through utility crews, law enforcement and healthcare workers.Authorities said they were barring re-entry to the remainder of the Keys to allow more time to restore electricity, water, fuel supplies and medical service. U.S. officials have said some 10,000 residents of the Keys stayed put when the storm hit and may ultimately need to be evacuated.Some 5.8 million homes and businesses were still without power in Florida and nearby states as of late Tuesday, down from a peak of about 7.4 million on Monday. Florida’s largest utility, Florida Power & Light Co, said western parts of the state might be without electricity until Sept. 22.One of the chief deprivations endured by many Floridians in the storm’s aftermath was difficulty staying cool in the absence of air conditioning, ice and even natural shade from trees knocked down or stripped bare of foliage.“I just pour water on my head a few times a day,” said Lydia Grondin, 29, of Fort Lauderdale.Florida’s largest city, Jacksonville in the northeastern corner of the state, was still recovering from heavy flooding yesterday.While damage across Florida was severe, it paled in scope to the devastation wrought by Irma in parts of the Caribbean, which accounted for the bulk of Irma’s fatalities.The hurricane destroyed about one-third of the buildings on the Dutch-ruled portion of the eastern Caribbean island of St. Martin en route to Florida, the Dutch Red Cross said yesterday.Irma hit the United States soon after Hurricane Harvey, which plowed into Houston late last month, killing about 60 and causing some $180 billion in damage, mostly from flooding.Several major airports in Florida that halted passenger operations due to Irma resumed limited service yesterday, including Miami International, one of the busiest in the United States.Insured property losses in Florida from Irma were expected to run from $20 billion to $40 billion, catastrophe modeling firm AIR Worldwide estimated.Irma was downgraded to a tropical depression late on Monday as it drifted into Alabama, and was likely to dissipate further last evening, the National Hurricane Center said.The centre was monitoring another hurricane, Jose, which was spinning in the Atlantic about 700 miles (1,130 km) west of Florida. The Atlantic hurricane season runs through November.

Découverte dune nouvelle espèce de rhinocéros préhistorique

first_imgDécouverte d’une nouvelle espèce de rhinocéros préhistoriqueVendredi dans la revue Science, des paléontologues sino-américains ont annoncé avoir découvert en 2007 au Tibet, les fossiles d’une nouvelle espèce de rhinocéros laineux vieille de 3,6 millions d’années. La trouvaille jette un nouvel éclairage sur l’origine de la grande faune préhistorique qui hantait l’Eurasie au temps des glaciations. C’est une découverte inédite qu’ont réalisée Xiaoming Wang, du Muséum d’histoire naturelle de Los Angeles, et Qiang Li, de l’Institut de paléontologie de l’Académie chinoise des sciences. Sur les hauts plateaux du Tibet, pour la première fois, ceux-ci ont découvert en 2007 une mandibule et un crâne entier fossilisés de rhinocéros laineux. Une espèce disparue, jusqu’alors inconnue, de ces animaux baptisée Coelodonta thibetana et qui serait vieille de 3,6 millions d’années. Elle serait ainsi bien antérieure au ‘classique’ rhinocéros laineux (Coelodonta antiquitatis) qui hantait les steppes d’Eurasie au Pléistocène (de -1,8 million d’années à -10.000 ans), et dont elle pourrait même être l’ancêtre.À lire aussiVoilà à quoi ressemblent les cris de petits rhinocérosAdapté au climat rigoureux des hautes altitudes himalayennes, l’animal était notamment pourvu d’une corne nasale assez plate, lui permettant probablement d’écarter la neige pour trouver sa nourriture végétale. À l’ère glaciaire, à partir de -2,6 millions d’années, déjà adapté au froid, il aurait pu descendre de ses montagnes et coloniser les steppes gelées d’Eurasie, donnant naissance à l’espèce laineuse du Pléistocène, que chassait encore l’homme préhistorique il y a 10.000 ans.Un scénario qui pourrait se généraliser à l’ensemble de la mégafaune de cette époque (mammouth et rhinocéros laineux, cerf géant, tigre à dents de sabre, …), dont on connait mal l’origine : “Cette découverte clarifie l’origine de ces rhinocéros laineux et peut-être aussi de la plupart des mammifères d’Eurasie éteints qui vivaient au Pléistocène et dont l’adaptation au froid remonterait à l’environnement de haute altitude du bassin de Zanda, dans l’Himalaya”, conclut Richard Lane, de la Fondation nationale américaine des Science (NSF) et membre de l’équipe de recherche cité par l’AFP.D’autres fossiles mis au jour  Par ailleurs, Xiaoming Wang précise que “les régions froides comme le Tibet, l’Arctique et l’Antarctique sont les endroits où l’on peut s’attendre à faire des découvertes inattendues dans l’avenir car elles restent largement inexplorées”. Justement, outre ce nouveau rhinocéros laineux, les paléontologues ont aussi découvert sur le même site des fossiles d’une espèce éteinte d’équidé, l’Hipparion, de bharal tibétain (connu sous le nom de mouton bleu), de chiru (une antilope du Tibet) de léopard des neiges, de blaireau ainsi que de 23 autres espèces de mammifères, relève l’AFP.Le 2 septembre 2011 à 18:27 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

‘Progress’ or ‘failed’? Inslee, Bryant debate issues

first_imgSEATTLE — Gov. Jay Inslee and his Republican opponent, Bill Bryant, sparred Monday night over education, taxes and government oversight in their second debate.At Seattle University Bryant repeatedly rapped the incumbent Democrat, saying he had mismanaged state departments, especially the state’s mental health system. He also said Inslee had failed to come up with a plan to fund K-12 education, as mandated by the state Supreme Court.“He has failed at the state’s paramount responsibility, and that means he is a failed governor,” Bryant said.Inslee countered that the state has invested billions in public education, that “significant strides” have been made to increase pay for teachers and increase access to kindergarten.“That’s progress,” Inslee said.Washington is a “confident and optimistic state,” Inslee said, and that he’s helped create 250,000 jobs.The state Supreme Court ruled in 2012 that the way Washington pays for education is unconstitutional, in part because of an overreliance on local dollars to pay expenses that should be covered by the state budget. The court gave the Legislature until 2018 to fix the problem and then found the state in contempt in 2014, fining it $100,000 per day to be set aside into an education account. Since the 2012 ruling, lawmakers have spent more than $2 billion to address the issues.last_img read more

Assessor hopeful was sideways with ADHD

first_imgA candidate for Clark County assessor disclosed in court documents seven years ago that he had a “significant” mental disability that made it difficult for him to build relationships with people and find employment.Republican Peter Van Nortwick, 43, said Friday that he has Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. He said he has learned to manage it without medication and to use it to his benefit.The self-employed general appraiser said the condition would not negatively affect his ability to run an office. The assessor supervises a total of 67 employees in the assessor’s office and the Geographic Information Systems department.The job currently pays $92,364 a year.Other candidates are Republicans David Horowitz and Daniel Weaver, and Democrat Janet Seekins.The top two finishers in Tuesday’s primary advance to the Nov. 2 general election. Van Nortwick said Friday the diagnosis was made when he was going through a divorce.“The divorce really sent me sideways,” Van Nortwick said. “It was a rough situation. It came out that I had ADHD, and knowing that I had it was probably the best thing. … I basically overcame that.”He and his first wife filed for divorce in 2001.In 2003, he filed a petition to modify his child support payments because he was unemployed. Van Nortwick said Friday that at the time, he had quit his job in international business, was seeing a therapist and received help through the Department of Social and Health Services’ Division of Vocational Rehabilitation.“I am certified by the department with a significant disability,” he wrote in 2003. “My disability is mental. … Due to my disability, I have a difficult time building relationships, and the department in conjunction with my doctors determined that it was significantly impacting my ability to find employment.”last_img read more
