Relief for Tokyo 2020 after smooth triathlon mixed testRelief for Tokyo 2020 after smooth triathlon mixed test

first_imgTokyo: France won a thrilling mixed triathlon test event for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics Sunday, which passed off as planned in a welcome boost for organisers after difficulties with high temperatures and water pollution. The swimming leg of the paratriathlon on Saturday was scrapped after water tests showed levels of e-coli bacteria more than double the acceptable standard and the running section of a women’s test event on Thursday was curtailed in blistering temperatures, with French athlete Cassandre Beaugrand treated for heatstroke.

The mixed relay, a new event for Tokyo 2020 involving two men and two women, was won by France in a photo finish from Great Britain after a nail-biting final sprint. Dorian Connix chased down Alex Yee on the final straight despite being behind for most of the race and breasted the tape fractionally ahead of his British competitor. A powerful United States team came third.

I’ve been here five days and I think you need two or three weeks. So it’s a really good learning curve,” said the 37-year-old. Battling the heat of the sweltering summer has become the main challenge for Tokyo 2020 organisers, who have otherwise won widespread praise, including from the International Olympic Committee, for their preparations. Aside from the problems at the triathlon, about a dozen people, including a spectator, were taken ill at a rowing test event last week with suspected heatstroke. A construction worker also died on an Olympic site as Tokyo sweats through a prolonged and deadly heatwave. The triathlon test events have courted controversy even without the heat — two British athletes were disqualified on Thursday for crossing the line first holding hands. Jess Learmonth and Georgia Taylor-Brown fell foul of ITU rules stating that “athletes who finish in a contrived tie situation, where no effort to separate their finish times has been made, will be disqualified”.last_img read more

first_imgNew Delhi: Foreign investors pulled out a net amount of Rs 5,920 crore from the Indian capital markets in August even as the government rolled back enhanced surcharge on FPIs last week. The withdrawal from the capital markets (both equity and debt) in August is “contrary to the expectation” since the Centre last week announced revocation of enhanced super-rich tax on foreign and domestic equity investors imposed in the Budget, said Himanshu Srivastava, senior analyst manager research at Morningstar.

In July, overseas investors had pulled out a net amount of Rs 2,985.88 crore from the capital markets.

Teacher in porn scandal with studentTeacher in porn scandal with student

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram A Victorian teacher is under investigation after taking part in an online adult video. The Geelong high school where the teacher works, says it is taking th allegations “very seriously”.Oberon High School principal Alison Murphy said she took immediate action when she was aware that the film was circulating among the students of the high school in Belmont.The alleged English teacher has taken leave from his teaching duties after the graphic video was uncovered by students on a pornographic website, who began discussing and sharing the link on social networking sites.The graphic footage shows a woman, who at one stage is blindfolded while a man is naked on a bed. It is said that the woman is a former student of the teacher from several years ago and there is no suggestion the couple had a relationship while the woman was a student. Several parents are said to have reported the incident to the school after their children were sent links to the online video and a number of parents who have seen the film are adamant that the teacher is the same person in the film. Many students have expressed their shock on social networking sites about the allegations, while other students defended their teacher, saying he was well regarded among students. A Department of Education spokesman said an investigation had been launched and “appropriate action” would be taken once the full details of the matter were known.last_img read more

Riot police intervene to break steel plant strikeRiot police intervene to break steel plant strike

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Scuffles broke out between riot police and protesters Friday when a prosecutor was dispatched to reopen the Halyvourgia steel plant in Aspropyrgos, western Attica, following a nine-month strike by workers that had effectively closed down the facility.Police had been on standby when the gates of the facility opened at 5.30 a.m. and clashed with striking workers and members of the Communist-affiliated PAME labor union.The senior plant manager sustained head injuries during the fracas while some protesters clashed with employees who wanted to return to work. Six people were arrested, charged with committing violence, and later released pending trial.The police intervention reportedly came at the behest of Prime Minister Antonis Samaras on Thursday night after talks between Labor Minister Yiannis Vroutsis, unionists and the Halyvourgia management broke down. According to sources, Samaras stressed the importance of upholding the law and protecting citizens’ right to work, as well as to strike. “The right to work is sacred and the government will do everything to protect it,” Samaras is quoted as saying. His words were echoed by government spokesman Simos Kedikoglou, who also questioned the motives for leftist opposition SYRIZA supporting striking workers. “With whom are they expressing solidarity?” he said. “It was the workers that asked for the police to intervene.” Earlier, SYRIZA had condemned the police action as “a raw, unprovoked, military-style intervention.”Friday’s intervention followed a court order issued a month and a half ago which deemed the strike by Halyvourgia workers illegal. The plant had been closed since October 31, when employees refused to accept a reduced salary and working week. Since then Halyvourgia’s management has fired at least 50 of its 400 workers and is reportedly planning to transfer the Aspropyrgos operations to Volos, in central Greece.

Far Cry 5 is Basically a Nightmare Version of The Dukes ofFar Cry 5 is Basically a Nightmare Version of The Dukes of

first_imgUbisoft has released the first details about the upcoming Far Cry 5. Previous entries have taken players to remote and exotic places, but this time, the game is set in the United States. Along with the first gameplay details, Ubisoft has also delivered a pair of trailers. To say that this will be a divisive and controversial game is an understatement.Far Cry 5 will be set in the fictional town of Hope County, Montana. Players will get to take on the role of a junior deputy in the police force who gets stranded in the remote town — which is currently being ruled by a man named Joseph Seed and his Eden’s Gate cult/militia. The majority of the game will have players building a resistance force against Seed in order to free Hope County. As you would expect from a Far Cry game, you’ll run into many… interesting characters (both good and bad) along the journey.This will be the first Far Cry game where you’ll be able to be a male or female with your choice of skin color. You can play through the entire campaign alone or in two-player co-op and can recruit NPC characters. You can even recruit animals like cougars and bears. Vehicles include American muscle cars, boats, big rigs, ATVs, and even planes. In case you’re wondering, yes, there will be aerial dogfights in this game. Overall, Far Cry 5 won’t differ greatly from past entries in the gameplay department, but it has all the ingredients that have made the series such a success.Far Cry 5 will be released next year on February 27 (wisely avoiding the 2017 holiday season). It will be coming out for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. PS4 owners will get a free Far Cry 5 skin at launch. The game will see enhancements on both the PS4 Pro and Project Scorpio.last_img read more

SF Federal Reserve bank chief talks stimulus in PortlandSF Federal Reserve bank chief talks stimulus in Portland

first_imgThe Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco’s top official offered reassurances Wednesday that the Fed would continue its aggressive stimulus tools for as long as they’re needed to guide the nation’s economy through its uneven recovery.John C. Williams, president and chief executive officer at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, repeated Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke’s statement made in June that the Fed could begin to reduce its purchase of securities later this year, eventually ending its asset purchase program around the middle of next year. Williams spoke at the Embassy Suites hotel in downtown Portland to dozens of business and banking leaders.Williams emphasized that such an action would be based on “substantial improvement” in the economy, and said the unemployment rate remains a valid measure of economic improvement, even though it overlooks people who have left the workforce.The regional Federal Reserve leader estimated that the national unemployment rate, which was 7.4 percent in July, would drop to about 7 percent by the middle of next year. Even when it cuts its purchase of long-term securities, Williams said theFed would provide a continued economic stimulus by maintaining its low interest rate to banks for as long as the unemployment rate is above 6.5 percent. He estimated that the nation won’t reach that unemployment rate until the first half of 2015.last_img read more

first_imgFour people, including a man and his son, were sentenced to death in murder cases in Chandpur and Narayanganj on Monday.In Chandpur, the court of district and session’s judge Md Saleh Uddin Ahmed sentenced two young men to death for killing their friend in the district town in 2012.The condemned convicts are Habib Gazi Nishan, 24, and Nazmul Bepari Sumon, 26.The court also sentenced them to three years’ rigorous jail each on another count for stealing two mobile phone sets of the victim.According to the prosecution, the convicts called Al Amin, son of a certain Md Oji Ullah of Biponibagh area, out of his house on 31 October 2012. However, he did not return home.Later, Al Amin’s family members filed a general diary with Chandpur model police station.Following the complaint, police arrested Nishan and Nazmul who confessed to police that they strangled Al Amin to death and buried the body in an orchard at Raldia village.Following their confession, police recovered the body.Md Abdur Rauf, then sub-inspector of Chandpur model police station and also investigation officer of the case, submitted a charge sheet on 27 January 2013.After examining all the records and 17 witnesses out of 47, judge Md Saleh Uddin Ahmed handed down the verdict.In Narayanganj, the court of additional district and session’s judge Mohammad Ali Hossain convicted a man and his son of killing Maksudul Islam Tuhin, a schoolboy, in 2015 and sentenced them to death.The convicts are Billal Hossain, 55, of Bogadi Kandapara village in Araihazar upazila of the district, and his son Mahfuzul Islam, 17.According to the prosecution, the condemned convicts abducted Tuhin, son of one Nasir Uddin of the village on 8 May 2015.Nasir filed a general diary with Araihazar police station in this connection on that day.Later, the abductors called the victim’s father over mobile phone and demanded Tk two million as ransom on 9 May.On secret information, police arrested Mahfuzul, a nephew of Nasir, from Narsingdi district on 12 May.Later, gleaning information from Mahfuzul, police recovered the body of Tuhin from a drum at the village and arrested Billal also.After examining all the records and witnesses, judge Mohammad Ali Hossain delivered the verdict.last_img read more

Jordan PM resigns after mass protestJordan PM resigns after mass protest

first_imgJordanian King Abdullah II (L) and replaced prime minister Hani Al-Mulki attend an official lunch meeting at the Royal Palace in Amman. File Photo: AFPJordan’s King Abdullah replaced his prime minister on Monday in a move to defuse the biggest protests in years over IMF-backed reforms that have hit the poor.Government plans to lift taxes have brought thousands of people onto the streets in the capital Amman and other parts of Jordan since last week, shaking a U.S.-allied Arab country that has remained stable through years of regional turmoil.King Abdullah appointed Omar al-Razzaz, a former World Bank economist, to form the new government after accepting Hani Mulki’s resignation, a ministerial source said. Razzaz was education minister in Mulki’s government.While some celebrated the change of government, the head of the Professional Unions Association said a strike planned for Wednesday would go ahead unless the draft income tax law was withdrawn.Police chief Major General Fadel al-Hamoud said security forces had detained 60 people for breaking the law in protests so far, and 42 security force members had been injured, but protests remained under control.”Rest assured, Jordan is a safe and secure country, and things are under control,” said Major General Hussein Hawatmeh, head of the Gendarmerie security department, appearing along with Hamoud at a news conference.Jordan, which has a peace treaty with Israel, has navigated years of instability at its borders, including wars in Iraq and Syria and conflict in the Israeli-occupied West Bank.But the instability has hit the economy of a country that is poor in resources and hosts close to 700,000 Syrian refugees. Unemployment among Jordanians stands at 18.4 percent, according to Jordan’s department of statistics.Public anger has grown over government policies since a steep general sales tax hike earlier this year and the abolition of bread subsidies, both measures driven by the International Monetary Fund.In a sign the tax hikes could be shelved, the official Petra news agency, citing the speaker of parliament, said lawmakers were on course to ask the king’s permission to hold an exceptional session, with a majority demanding the changes be withdrawn.”For us, our cause is the draft income tax law. The individuals (in government) do not concern us if they change, we want to change the approach of the government,” said Ali al-Abous, head of the Professional Unions Association.Demonstrators who have converged for nightly protests near the Cabinet office have said they would disband only if the government rescinded the tax bill it sent to parliament last month.TIME FOR “MIDDLE GROUND”Razzaz is a Harvard-educated economist who served with the World Bank in both Washington and the region.Officials said he had been an opponent of reforms that hurt the poor. His appointment nevertheless sends a positive message to foreign donors that Jordan will press ahead with reforms, though in a gradual way, they said.”I believe they have time to amend the law, to withdraw the law and make a new one that is more of a middle ground between the public demands and what the government wants,” said Mufleh Aqel, a prominent Jordanian banker.The IMF approved a three-year extended arrangement with Jordan in 2016 to support economic and financial reform to lower public debt and encourage structural reforms.Jordan has backed down on reforms in the past, fearing a social backlash. Until Mulki’s government, the lifting of bread subsidies and tax changes have been pushed back repeatedly.Jordan was rocked by unrest in 2012 when the IMF told the government to lift gasoline prices.Mulki, a business-friendly politician, was appointed in May 2016 and given the responsibility of reviving a sluggish economy and business sentiment. The tax increases had caused his popularity to plummet.The protests widened on Saturday after Mulki refused to scrap a bill increasing personal and corporate taxes, saying it was up to parliament to decide.The government says it needs more funds for public services and argues that the tax changes reduce social disparities by placing a heavier burden on high earners. Opponents say a tough IMF-imposed fiscal consolidation plan has worsened the plight of poorer Jordanians and squeezed the middle class.Jordan’s economy has struggled to grow in the past few years in the face of chronic deficits, as private foreign capital and aid flows have declined.last_img read more

Study Mortality Rates for White MiddleAged Americans on the RiseStudy Mortality Rates for White MiddleAged Americans on the Rise

first_imgMortality rates for White middle-aged Americans are on the rise, while mortality rates among middle-aged Blacks remain the same, according to a Princeton University study released last month.Researchers blamed the increase in White mortality on drug and alcohol abuse, suicide, chronic liver disease and cirrhosis.“Self-reported declines in health, mental health, and ability to conduct activities of daily living, and increases in chronic pain and inability to work, as well as clinically measured deteriorations in liver function, all point to growing distress in this population,” researchers wrote.Researchers found that from 1978 to 1998, the mortality rate for Whites ages 45 to 54 dropped by about 2 percent per year. However, after 1998, death rates began to rise, while mortality rates for non-Hispanic Blacks of the same age dropped 2.6 percent each year since that time.The study, titled “Rising Morbidity and Mortality in Midlife Among White Non-Hispanic Americans in the 21st Century,” can be found in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.last_img read more
