Khawaja ruled out of World Cup as Australia call up Wade Marsh

first_imgManchester: Australia head coach Justin Langer has confirmed batsman Usman Khawaja will miss the rest of the World Cup with a hamstring strain. Top-order batsman Khawaja suffered the left hamstring injury in Australia’s surprise 10-run defeat by South Africa at Old Trafford on Saturday. Matthew Wade will replace Khawaja in the World Cup holders’ 15-man squad, subject to confirmation from the International Cricket Council. Khawaja’s absence will be a blow for Australia heading into Thursday’s semi-final clash with old rivals England at Edgbaston.

Mitchell Marsh has been added to the squad as cover for Stoinis, who missed Australia’s wins over Pakistan and Sri Lanka before returning against Bangladesh. “Mitch Marsh is going to come on standby for Marcus Stoinis just to see how he comes up. If they have to come in they’ll be ready to step up,” Langer added.last_img read more

World needs to move beyond conceptual debate and improve protection from atrocities

“All of us are well aware of the grim human reality that lies behind the words, ‘war crimes’, ‘crimes against humanity’, ‘ethnic cleansing’, and ‘genocide’,” Mr. Guterres said at a dialogue held at UN Headquarters on the responsibility to protect, commonly referred to as ‘R2P’. “It is time to move beyond the conceptual debate towards improved protection of people from atrocity crimes.”Referring to his report on responsibility to protect, the UN chief also stressed that the Organization must give far greater attention to address the challenges before they spiral out of control. In particular, he underscored the need for practical steps, noting that his report includes options that can be taken in a relatively short time, without major operational or institutional requirements. He also urged the Human Rights Council (the highest UN intergovernmental forum on human rights) as well as the Security Council to further strengthen their capacity to address the risks of atrocity crimes and other violations of the responsibility to protect, and called for improving the use of all three UN pillars – peace and security, development, and human rights – for better early warning and prevention, as envisaged in the Human Rights Up Front action plan. Noting that the responsibly to protect agenda generates some discomfort for a number of UN Member States, with the primary concern that it will be used to “impose” international approaches that may harm national sovereignty, Mr. Guterres said that the success of the UN implementing its mandates depended on national actors being able to deliver on their sovereign responsibilities. “Our shared challenge is to use the principle of the responsibility to protect to achieve the goals that were originally envisaged. I am convinced that open and constructive discussion among concerned States can overcome any remaining differences,” he added. Further, the Secretary-General recalled the outcome document of the 2005 World Summit, which was adopted unanimously and which reinforced that States have the primary responsibility to protect their populations from atrocity crimes as well as assist States if they do not possess the necessary capacity to prevent crimes in their territory. “But should national authorities manifestly fail to protect their populations from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity, then we must be prepared to take collective action, in accordance with the Charter, including Chapter VII, on a case-by-case basis,” he stated. read more

Three areas Urban Meyer covered in his weekly Ohio State press conference

Urban Meyer speaks at the 2016 Student Appreciation Day on April 2 at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. Credit: Judy Won | For The LanternThe Ohio State football team might be creating buzz with the contributions of incoming freshmen in spring drills, but there are still multiple questions about the team that will don scarlet and gray come September.Following the morning session of spring practice on Tuesday, OSU coach Urban Meyer answered questions from the media about how the team is progressing with spring drills.Here are three takeaways from Meyer’s time at the podium.Assist from alumniMany notable players departed Columbus after last season to pursue the next level, such as wide receiver Michael Thomas, cornerback Eli Apple and offensive tackle Taylor Decker.Although these players will no longer step on the field for the Buckeyes, they are contributing in ways other than making plays.“They’re really helping our young guys,” Meyer said. “(Thomas) comes here to coach.”A big question looming over the heads of Buckeye fans is how the offensive line will handle the large transitional phase of losing three starters from last season. But spirits are high, Meyer said, especially since one of the highest-rated offensive linemen in this year’s NFL draft is mentoring the next men up.“(Decker) is here for a lot of reasons,” Meyer said. “One is to lift and train, but also to help (sophomore) Isaiah Prince and (junior) Jamarco Jones.”Jones is expected to start at left tackle this season for the Buckeyes, while Prince looks primed to be the regular right tackle.Student Appreciation Day more than just funOn Saturday, OSU hosted its annual Student Appreciation Day, in which students are invited to attend a practice held by the team and witness what it is like to suit up with the Buckeyes.Although the event is fun for the spectators and usually results in good laughs — like when players such as redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett participate in the circle drill with a female student — there is a more serious side to the event, Meyer said. “Last week was about chaos,” the coach said. “You have 3,000 students in there, loud noise the entire time, screaming and yelling.”  When the Buckeyes take the field at Ohio Stadium, there is invariably more than 100,000 fans in attendance, making it a hectic environment. But, outside of the sounds of whistles and shouting coaches, most of their spring practices are quiet.The use of the annual event to create a more distracting environment is something the coaching staff feels will better prepare the team for games where crowd noise makes relaying plays and audibles extremely difficult.“We, on purpose, try to create situations like that,” Meyer said. Linebackers look promisingOSU has gained a reputation for producing strong talents at linebacker, a trend Meyer said he feels will continue again this year. He spoke volumes about the ability of sophomore linebacker Jerome Baker. Meyer said the Buckeyes could very well use the Cleveland native like they used Darron Lee, who bolted for the NFL after starting for two seasons. The Buckeyes also lost Joshua Perry at linebacker. “Jerome Baker has the skill set,” Meyer said.Baker, a 6-foot-1 four-star recruit, was not a starter last season and saw limited action on the field, registering three tackles. But after a string of good spring showings, Meyer said the coaching staff feels he can make a large contribution for the Scarlet and Gray this year. The Buckeyes are working toward preparing the team for the upcoming spring game, which is set for 1:30 p.m. on April 16 at Ohio Stadium. read more

How green is your sandwich Why switching to egg and cress could

first_imgAt the other end of the scale, the least polluting option is egg and cress, which generates 739 grams of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2 eq.), making it twice as green its meaty counterpart. But according to scientists, sandwiches are having a major impact on the environment. In fact, the worst culprit – the all-day breakfast of egg, bacon and sausage – produces the same amount of carbon dioxide as driving a car for 12 miles. When the 4th Earl of Sandwich ordered his meat to be served between two slices of bread to avoid disrupting a card game, he probably did not expect his action would affect future global temperatures 250 years later. For the first time, researchers studied the whole life-cycle…last_img read more

Qatar continue domination in Asia

The 17th Asian Championship in Bahrain is ended. Qatar defended their title, winning 27:22 (12:11) over Bahrain in the final.The match, which was replay of 2014 final, was very close and challenging. Strong efforts of Bahrain, with disciplined defense and inspired attacking play of Mahmood Abdulbaqer, kept them in the game. During first 50 minutes neither Qatar nor Bahrain managed to make more than two goals difference. Despite outstanding support from the crowded Khalifa Sports City Hall, Fernando Barbeito side did not capitalize crucial advantages and chances and paid the price at the end. In the second half, at 16:16 result, Qatar played with only three players in the field for two minutes, due to mistake of Valero Rivera bench. However, Bahrain was unable to score more than once during that period. In the last quarter, Qatar, boosted by outstanding saves of Goran Stojanovic, strong offensive play of Zarko Markovic and furious finish by Rafael Capote, who scored five goals in last ten minutes, managed to win over highly motivated hosts.In the third-place match, Japan easily won 25:16 (12:7) against Saudi Arabia, which missed some key players due to injuries.Iran won 5th place, overcoming Korea, while United Arab Emirates won against Oman in the 7th place play-off.Final standings:1.

How carriers tests their networks

first_imgRecently, we took you on a tour of a Verizon Wireless mobile “super switch”. In addition to learning about the facility we picked up some knowledge about how Big Red handles emergencies and other situations, in regards to keeping the network up or restoring it should the worst happen. However, I wanted to know what tools they used to monitor a network to tell if it’s working to begin with. Surely the “can you hear me now” guy isn’t their only method of testing a network.While inside the switch, I grabbed a the video below to see exactly how things work.According to Verizon their mobile technicians are tasked with monitoring the networks while out performing their normal tasks, but steps needed to be put in place to ensure things like SMS and data are flowing from the servers properly. What you are watching above is a script that is used to rapidly test SMS and mobile broadband from multiple devices simultaneously.According to Verizon, these phones are always on, and run that same test every couple of minutes. While it’s a little jarring to see, and I am sure my Matrix nightmares will be back for a day or two, it’s cool to see this kind of thing happening!last_img read more

Et si les autres planètes étaient aussi proches de la Terre que

first_imgEt si les autres planètes étaient aussi proches de la Terre que la Lune ? Scale, une vidéo réalisée par le blogueur Brad Goodspeed, donne une vision surprenante de la dimension des planètes, en imaginant que celles-ci soient à la même distance de la Terre que la Lune.Comment avoir une impression concrète de la dimension des autres planètes du système solaire ? Brad Goodspeed, un blogueur et designer graphique a trouvé sa solution : les placer à la même distance de la Terre que la Lune. En effet, alors que l’orbite de l’astre lunaire avoisine les 380.000 kilomètres, ceux des autres planètes telles que Mars, Neptune ou Jupiter dépasse la centaine de millions de kilomètres. De même, alors que le rayon de la Lune est d’environ 1.700 kilomètres, celui de Neptune, par exemple, avoisine les 25.000 kilomètres.À lire aussiSpaceX : un satellite d’Elon Musk manque d’entrer en collision avec un satellite de l’ESADans sa vidéo, Brad Goodspeed s’est donc amusé à comparer les différents astres. Ainsi, il y donne une vision très concrète de leur dimension et un résultat pour le moins surprenant. Alors que les planètes sont toutes placées à une distance identique, certaines apparaissent en effet beaucoup plus proches que d’autres. Jupiter, par exemple, semble gigantesque à côté de Mars ou de la Terre elle-même. On se rend ainsi compte à quel point notre perception est influencée par la dimension des planètes.Sur son blog, la vidéo du designer graphique a suscité de vives réactions qui l’ont incité à reprendre quelques détails mais aussi à créer d’autres images à partir de son idée.Découvrez la vidéo Scale de Brad Goodspeed sur Maxisciences.Le 2 février 2011 à 10:22 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

LAustralie impose sa taxe carbone

first_imgL’Australie impose sa taxe carboneLe gouvernement australien a annoncé ce vendredi que 294 des plus grands pollueurs du pays devront payer une taxe carbone. Celle-ci sera mise en place dès le mois de juillet prochain dans le but de réduire les émissions de gaz à effet de serre.La semaine dernière, le Brésil donnait le tournis aux écologistes, cette fois c’est au tour de l’Australie. A moins d’une semaine du sommet Rio+20, le gouvernement australien multiplie les annonces “vertes”. Après avoir consterné les protecteurs de la nature en proposant de réguler les crocodiles marins par un tourisme “chasseur”, le pays prend ses responsabilités en matière de pollution atmosphérique. Malgré la faible popularité de la taxe carbone, Julia Gillard, Premier ministre, citée par le Winnipeg Free Press, a maintenu qu’il était essentiel de réaliser l’objectif de 2020 : faire chuter les émissions de gaz à effet de serre de 5% par rapport aux niveaux de 2000. Les entreprises et les gouvernements locaux qui produisent annuellement plus de 25.000 tonnes de dioxyde de carbone, ou l’équivalent d’autres gaz carboniques, devront donc payer une taxe de 23 dollars australiens (environ 18 euros) pour chaque tonne de dioxyde de carbone produite et ce, à partir du 1er juillet. BHP Billiton, la plus grande entreprise minière au monde, et Macquarie Generation, l’une des plus grandes centrales électriques d’Australie, sont sur la liste des futurs payeurs, tout comme les gouvernements locaux qui possèdent des décharges émettrices de méthane. L’industrie agricole, troisième plus gros pollueur d’Australie, devrait en revanche être exemptée de cette taxe, au vu des difficultés à mesurer les émissions produites par les fermes. Greg Combet, ministre du Changement Climatique, a déclaré que le nombre de pollueurs-payeurs pourrait changer dans les mois à venir, en fonction de l’augmentation ou de la diminution de leurs émissions de gaz à effet de serre. L’Australie est l’un des pays qui émet le plus de gaz à effet de serre au monde (en nombre par habitant). Une propension à polluer liée à sa forte dépendance aux abondantes réserves de charbon du pays : une ressource-clé pour sa production d’électricité.Le 15 juin 2012 à 11:33 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Google launches another big move towards dominating hotel search

first_imgGoogle is making its own Google Hotel Finder, its hotel price-comparison product, which enables users to filter for Zagat-rated hotels within Google’s 3-pack ad format.As a Koddi blog post points out, Google just added filters — price, rating, hotel class and more — right within its 3-pack style listings so there is no need for the consumer to navigate elsewhere to fine-tune their hotel searches.“Once a user selects a filter they are redirected to the local universal listings page,” Koddi stated “Users can then continue to narrow their search with the same filters, now available at the top of the listings page.”“After a user is finished filtering and clicks on the hotel they wish to book they are redirected to the hotel details page, where all of the offers from advertisers will be listed,” Koddi added.The impact of Google’s 3-pack format is that it drives traffic to third-party sites through organic search but also to Google’s hotel ads from online travel agencies and hotels. Google likely is taking market share from metasearch players with the streamlined navigation from its search results pages to its hotel ads.last_img read more
