India drop two places to 103 in FIFA rankings

first_imgNew Delhi: The Indian football team slipped two places to 103rd in the FIFA rankings released on Thursday. India lost two matches and drew one in the Intercontinental Cup earlier this month in Ahmedabad. It lost 2-4 to Tajikistan and 2-5 against eventual winners DPR Korea before playing out a 1-1 draw against Syria. India has 1214 ranking points to its kitty, down by five points from the previous chart issued last month. The Indian team now lies at 18th among Asian countries. Iran (23rd) is at the top among Asian countries, followed by Japan (33), Korea (37), Australia (46) and Qatar (62).

Meanwhile, FIFA Thursday sought an update from the AIFF on the current scenario in India to which the national federation reiterated its stance that it would resolve the impasse surrounding an unified league in a two-three year window. Reacting to a representation made by six I-League clubs — Mohun Bagan, East Bengal, Minerva Punjab, Churchill Brothers, Aizawl FC and Gokulam Kerala — the chief member association officer of FIFA Joyce Cook wanted an update on the present scenario from the AIFF. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced later”We would like to obtain an update on the current position of the AIFF as well as any additional information you may be able to provide on the present situation,” Cook wrote in a mail addressed to AIFF general secretary Kushal Das. FIFA also pointed out that its joint report with AFC following an extensive consultation process last year is being discussed now regarding the merger of Indian Super League and the I-League. “The report’s objectives are among others, to provide the AIFF with external expertise and to support your federation and its stakeholders in establishing and implementing a widely-supported, robust medium to long-term strategy,” Cook said. “As you know, the report is therefore a comprehensive review and professional proposal which also contains a series of clear and concrete recommendations for your further consideration,” he added. Later in the day, the AIFF issued a statement without mentioning the FIFA letter. “In the recent days, the AIFF President Mr. Praful Patel in his meeting with the Hero I-League clubs as well as in several recent interviews has broadly taken the same line as was suggested in the above-mentioned report. “Needless to mention that this is precisely the reason that a two-three-year window is required to resolve all contentious issues amicably with all stakeholders,” the AIFF statement read. “The question of Hero Indian Super League not remaining a closed league permanently has been clarified amply enough by the AIFF President, and promotion and relegation eventually would lead to the development of club football in India.” The AIFF said it is committed to engaging with AFC and FIFA as well as all other stakeholders for finding an early resolution to these issues.last_img read more

MPAA chief says Netflix addition makes organization stronger

LAS VEGAS — Motion Picture Association of America Chairman Charles Rivkin says Netflix’s addition to the group makes the entertainment industry stronger.Rivkin’s remarks are a stark contrast to how the streaming giant is usually referenced at CinemaCon, the annual gathering of movie theatre owners and distributors, who generally see the streaming service as a threat to their business model.The MPAA chairman and CEO kicked off CinemaCon Tuesday morning in Las Vegas with his annual state of the industry remarks.Rivkin also touted the record 2018 box office year. The North American box office reached $11.9 billion and the global box office hit $41 billion last year.That growth was helped by an increase in younger and more diverse audiences.Lindsey Bahr, The Associated Press

Taxpayers federation says national debt to hit 600B Saturday urges restraint

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Taxpayers federation says national debt to hit $600B Saturday, urges restraint by The Canadian Press Posted Nov 23, 2012 1:15 pm MDT OTTAWA – The country is about to pass a red-ink milestone that the Canadian Taxpayers Federation says is completely unnecessary.The national debt is set to reach $600 billion just seconds before 11:19 p.m. ET Saturday, says the federation, which has set up a “debt clock” to let everyone view the event online.That works out to nearly $17,200 for each person in the country.It should never have reached that level, said federation director Gregory Thomas, who blamed the Harper government’s economic stimulus and other spending for the historic debt level.The stimulus spending was unnecessary, Thomas told a Friday news conference.“The economy bounced back and … we’re going to be paying those stimulus dollars 20, 30 years from now if we don’t get our act together.”At the current rate, Canada’s national debt is rising by $74.6 million a day, or $863.27 every second.The government says the spending under its so-called economic action plan was necessary to maintain and create jobs during the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression.But much of it was wasteful, said Thomas, who took particular aim at the government’s advertising spending.“You can’t sit through a football game without seeing all this propaganda about what a terrific job the government’s doing,” he said.“They’re borrowing money to sell Canadians on themselves.”And the debt will keep climbing as long as the Harper government keeps spending beyond its means, the federation said.The federation did applaud Finance Minister Jim Flaherty’s commitment to balance the budget before the next election.Still, Flaherty acknowledged last month that the fallout from the recession will prevent Ottawa from erasing the debt by 2021.The minister said the government continues to search for ways to cut spending as he prepares a 2013 budget.But as with previous budgets, Flaherty has ruled out both tax increases and cuts to provincial transfers. read more

Centerra Gold in talks with Kyrgyz Republic over ownership of Kumtor mine

by The Canadian Press Posted Jun 4, 2013 1:40 pm MDT Centerra Gold in talks with Kyrgyz Republic over ownership of Kumtor mine TORONTO – Centerra Gold Inc. (TSX:CG) says it’s in talks with the government in Kyrgyzstan about a new ownership arrangement for its Kumtor gold mine following violent protests and calls to nationalize the operation.A government company currently owns about one-third of Centerra, the Toronto-based company that operates the mine where protesters blockaded a key access road and cut power last week.Centerra says the two sides are considering a swap to shift ownership of Kumtor from the company to a joint venture with the government.It says the government’s Kyrgyzaltyn JSC would exchange its stake in Centerra for a stake of equivalent value in the new joint venture.Centerra says it expects a “constructive dialogue” but added there’s no assurance that the two sides can reach an agreement.In addition to Kumtor, Centerra owns the Boroo mine and Gatsuurt development property in Mongolia.

Opinion Difficult draw shouldnt end United States World Cup hopes

United States Men’s National Team defender Clarence Goodson (21) heads the ball away from goal during a World Cup Qualifying match against Mexico Sept. 10 at Crew Stadium. The USMNT won, 2-0.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorFor months, my mind has been singularly focused on this year’s FIFA World Cup. Ever since the calendar turned to 2014 it’s seemed so close, but in truth it’s always been comfortably out of reach. That situation has changed, however, and the world’s greatest sporting event is now right around the corner.The first event announcing that the tournament is imminent – the World Cup herald, if you will – is the naming of the rosters. Competing nations had until Tuesday  to name a provisional squad of 30 players to take to a pre-tournament training camp. Each country has until June 2 to provide FIFA with a final list of 23 players whom it will take to Brazil.Some countries – England, Brazil, Mexico and others – elect to skip the 30-man squad and go straight to the 23. But a majority of the nations still name preliminary squads.One of those countries to name its 30 players this week: the United States.Head coach Jurgen Klinsmann revealed his selection of players on Monday, and while the names didn’t cause shock among the American soccer public, the omission of striker Eddie Johnson did raise a few eyebrows.Johnson scored the winning goal in the U.S.’s 2-0 victory over Mexico on Sept. 10 at Columbus Crew Stadium. Even though his goal effectively clinched World Cup qualification, Johnson’s failure to score in his first eight games of the season with D.C. United is probably the reason Klinsmann decided against selecting him.There’s a very good chance that Columbus will be represented in Brazil with Crew captain Michael Parkhurst included in the preliminary roster. Parkhurst may have been on the outside looking in a year ago, but his performances since then for the national team have been exemplary, and I’d be very surprised if he didn’t wind up with a seat on the plane to South America.Other than that, the squad picks itself – meaning the real test will be seeing who makes the final 23. In my opinion, there are roughly 20 “locks,” while the final three spots will be decided over the coming weeks.The team will gather for the first time on Wednesday at Stanford University. Once there, they’ll participate in a training camp and ultimately compete in three friendlies: against Azerbaijan on May 27 in San Francisco, against Turkey on June 1 in Harrison, N.J., and then with the final roster against Nigeria on June 7 in Jacksonville, Fla.The prize awaiting the players who make the cut? A shot at playing against some of the best players in the world during games against Ghana, Portugal and Germany in the opening round at the World Cup.I’d argue that the U.S. has one of the most talented squads in its history, with an array of talent from the goalkeeping position all the way to the forward line. It may not include a world superstar, but then that isn’t a prerequisite to succeeding in a World Cup – just ask Argentina forward Lionel Messi.The doubters will rightly point to the standard of opposition, a group that deserves it’s moniker as the “group of death.” Germany and Ghana have both overcome the U.S. twice in World Cup play, while Portugal fell to the Americans in 2002 with arguably the most disappointing squad in its history. Thank goodness this year’s World Cup isn’t being played in Panem, because the odds certainly aren’t in the U.S.’s favor.But having said that, I don’t see why many are so quick in writing off the U.S. team’s chances.For starters, having a tough group at the World Cup shouldn’t be a blow to morale. It should be expected. After all, the competition isn’t held in high esteem for nothing. It takes the best teams on the planet and puts them in one place to find an eventual winner.In 2010, it could be argued that the U.S. was handed an “easy” draw against England, Slovenia and Algeria. Even though the Americans navigated that group successfully, it’s not like it came easy. If you’re hoping to face a second-rate, low-quality side at the World Cup, you’ve come to the wrong place.That’s why I think the prospect of facing these talented countries shouldn’t be seen as a doomed exercise. Instead, it should be recognized as a tremendous opportunity to showcase just how far soccer in this country has come since the days when barely any matches were shown on television. The world’s best teams become the world’s best teams because they overcome difficult opposition, and that’s the only way the U.S. is going to move up world soccer’s ladder.The U.S. has never made it out of the group stage in consecutive tournaments, and if that trend continues it won’t necessarily signal a failure, but more of an indication that the national team’s growth still has a long way to go.But if it can reverse that trend, and bury the demons of the past three World Cups against the countries that eliminated them, it will be an epoch-defining achievement.Believing in an outcome like that sounds a lot more fun to me than dismissing the national team’s efforts before they even begin.If you want a place on the bandwagon there’s still time. We’ve got plenty of room. read more

LA Noire to ship on 3 discs for Xbox 360

first_imgLook at most games released on both Xbox 360 and PS3 simultaneously and you’ll have a hard time telling the difference. They will both look great running on a HD display. However, the cracks are starting to show in Microsoft’s decision to stick with an ageing DVD optical drive instead of selecting a higher capacity solution.This is most clear in Rockstar‘s forthcoming game L.A. Noire. The game is huge in terms of scope, and big in terms of detail. What that adds up to is a lot of data that needs to be shipped, way too much data in fact for the Xbox 360 DVD discs even with Microsoft’s gigabyte of extra space they found earlier this year.So while PS3 gamers will be placing a single L.A. Noire 25GB Blu-ray disc into their consoles, 360 gamers will be carrying home a much heavier case containing not one, not two, but three DVDs.The consequences of this are two-fold. On the one hand L.A. Noire will require two disc changes on the Xbox 360 during a full playthrough. Hopefully Team Bondi has managed to include those changes at points where it won’t seem too frustrating.Thankfully, the case-by-case gameplay should make that decision a simple one.The other consequence is that this game is going to cost Microsoft and Rockstar more to release on the format due to the extra discs required and therefore weight of each game. That may seem minor, but scale it up to millions of copies and that becomes a significant additional cost.There is no solution to this for Microsoft with the Xbox 360. It’s too late to adopt a new drive technology and the next console isn’t going to arrive for another couple of years. So this is something developers and gamers will have to get used to. More games for Microsoft’s console are going to require disc changes in order to keep up with PS3’s texture resolutions and as developers build more expansive games.via Kotakulast_img read more

Senators seethe at IHS blunders

first_imgMichael Weahkee, a Public Health Service offers, is the acting head of the IHS. He was on the hot seat at a Senate hearing Wednesday. (Image from hearing video on Senate.gov)President Trump proposes to cut the Indian Health Service budget by $300 million, and the head of the IHS had trouble defending that 6 percent cut at a Senate hearing Wednesday. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, who chaired the hearing, said the IHS is already failing Native communities in the Lower 48. She wasn’t the only senator outraged by the state of IHS, and it goes well beyond the budget.Michael Weahkee, the acting IHS director, would have had a rough hearing anyway. Chairman Murkowski and other members of the Interior Appropriations Subcommittee have spent years shaping the IHS budget. Some represent large Native populations. They weren’t likely to welcome cuts to drug treatment, mental health services, clinics and hospitals in their states.But just last week, the Wall Street Journal put a spotlight on the agency’s dire faults.Murkowski said she was horrified to read the Journal’s accounts of fatal misdiagnoses, under-treatments, over-treatments and inept staff at IHS facilities in the Great Plains.“Because this is our IHS. These are our facilities that are supposed to care for our first people,” Murkowski said. “And the stories that were detailed were shocking ”(Murkowski said she’s normally laser-focused on home-state issues, but Alaska’s Native health facilities are run by tribes, under contract to the IHS, so their problems aren’t the same.)Sen. Steve Daines, a Montana Republican, suggested changing the name of IHS to “Indian Health Suffering.”“These are real families – single moms, single dads, aunts, uncles, elderly tribal leaders -that are suffering greatly,” Daines said. “It’s a tragedy.”Weahkee acknowledged none of this in his statement at the hearing. He portrayed the proposed cut to his agency as small.“Which will allow us to maintain and address our agency mission to raise the physical, mental, social and spiritual health of American Indians and Alaskan natives to the highest level,” Weakhee said.Murkowski was incredulous.“I know that your job is to defend this budget but I just I just have to say ‘wow,’” Murkowski said. “After listening that, I would think that we don’t have a problem within the IHS system”Several senators were frustrated IHS didn’t provide data on Medicaid reimbursements, the revenue IHS gets when it treats a Medicaid recipient. Murkowski said the information is important, because senators are supposed to vote soon on a health care bill that would cut Medicaid, and they won’t know the effect it would have on IHS.Sen. Jon Tester, D-Montana, was among those who nearly begged Weahkee to advocate for his agency’s needs. Tester sounded calm when he started the questioning, but he noticed a pattern of non-answers.“Were you told not to answer any questions here, by the way?” Tester asked.Weahkee said no.“OK,” Tester said. “Because I think it’s absolutely unbelievable that you can’t separate how much Medicaid has helped you with third-party billing.“Tester spent a long time trying to get the acting director to answer one specific question: “What does this budget do to your ability to hire staff?”“We have a lot of efforts under way,” Weahkee said.Tester calmly persisted: “Is there an increase in dollars for hiring staff or decrease?”“We prioritized maintaining direct-care services,” Weahkee said.Tester asked at least six times and grew furious with the opaque responses.“I’m going to tell you something. Indian Health Service is in a crisis!” Tester said, by then shouting. “And if you have served in Indian Health Service for 10 years and you have answered the questions in Indian Health Service like you have today, it’s no wonder that it’s in crisis! I cannot believe what has transpired in this hearing today! All I want is some damn answers!The White House hasn’t yet nominated anyone head IHS permanently. Health Sec. Tom Price said at his confirmation hearing he was aware of problems at IHS and wanted to fix them.last_img read more

Man Charged in Shooting of Giants Draft Pick and Teammate

first_imgBy The Associated PressAn 18-year-old Kansas man has been charged in the April attack that wounded New York Giants draft pick Corey Ballentine and killed one of his Washburn University teammates, Dwane Simmons.Francisco Alejandro Mendez was charged July 12 with first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder and five counts of aggravated battery in the April 28 attack, the Shawnee County district attorney’s office said in a news release.This May 2019 photo shows Corey Ballentine of the New York Giants NFL football team. An 18-year-old Kansas man has been charged in the April attack that wounded Ballentine and killed one of his Washburn University teammates, Dwane Simmons. (AP Photo)Mendez is being held on a $1 million bond. His case doesn’t appear yet in online court records, and his attorney, Victoria Chundak-Gallaway, in an unrelated criminal case didn’t immediately reply to a phone message left July 13 at her office.The two Washburn defensive backs were outside of an off-campus house party hours after the Giants selected Ballentine in the sixth round of the draft when someone opened fire from a vehicle, killing Simmons and wounding Ballentine, who has since recovered.Washburn football coach Craig Schurig told the Topeka Capital-Journal that he called Ballentine on July 12 to inform him that Mendez had been charged.“You could tell there was a relief in his voice,” Schurig said. “It just helps — it helps to know that the people responsible are starting to get caught. And this is a big step. It was nice to be able to communicate with him some really good news.”Schurig said he exchanged texts with Dwane Simmons’ father, Navarro Simmons, earlier July 12.“You can’t imagine what the Simmons family is going through, but today is a very good day,” the coach said.Ballentine, who was shot in the rear end, missed the Giants’ rookie minicamp in early May while he recovered. He played in 46 games as a cornerback for Washburn, finishing with 186 tackles, four forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries and five interceptions. In his final season, he won the Cliff Harris Award, which goes to the small college defensive player of the year.last_img read more

Over the past week the Arizona Cardinals have bee

first_imgOver the past week, the Arizona Cardinals have been linked to quarterback Carson Palmer should he be released by the Oakland Raiders.But according to SI.com’s senior NFL writer Peter King, Steve Keim and Co. might not wait for the former Pro Bowler to hit the open market.In his weekly Monday Morning Quarterback column, King wrote that Arizona would likely have to give Oakland a fourth or fifth-round pick to complete a deal for Palmer, and that it could happen as early as Monday. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling 0 Comments   Share   Still, King doesn’t seem to think the addition of the former Heisman Trophy winner would do much to improve the Cardinals’ chances of winning the division next season.Does that mean Arizona will contend? I doubt it sincerely. The leaky offensive line must be significantly better to give the immobile Palmer a chance to play well. But of all the quarterbacks on the market or in the 2013 draft, Palmer gives the Cardinals the best chance to be competitive as the fourth-best team in a suddenly very good NFC West.Under his current deal with the Raiders, Palmer is owed $13 million in 2013, however he has previously turned down Oakland’s request to take a paycut. Should a trade between Arizona and Oakland come to fruition, King noted that he doesn’t see a new contract being an issue for Palmer, after all who wouldn’t welcome the chance to throw passes to Larry Fitzgerald for a living? The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Top Stories Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Palmer’s numbers (8-16 as a starter, 35 touchdowns and 30 interceptions) with the Raiders over the past two seasons weren’t reflective of the quarterback he was earlier in his career in Cincinnati, but King seems to believe reports of his demise have been greatly exaggerated.Let’s not be delusional about Palmer. You can’t say he’s a premier player anymore, but you also can’t say he can’t play. He threw for 4,018 yards, and his interception percentage (14 picks on 565 attempts, 2.5 percent) was lower than that of Drew Brees and Eli Manning. He wants to play the Arians way. I believe Arians is the best coach in the league for Palmer. I also believe Palmer wouild buy in totally to Arians’ plan, and I hear he’s excited about a chance in Arizona. A move would allow him to stay close to his southern California home, and to play in a system that wouldn’t be a reach for his game. And Palmer would have the kind of reliable deep-threat receiver in Larry Fitzgerald that few quarterbacks have at their disposal.The Cardinals currently have four quarterbacks (Drew Stanton, Brian Hoyer, John Skelton and Ryan Lindley) under contract, but Palmer would certainly fit the kind of big-armed quarterback Bruce Arians wants to run his offensive system.last_img read more
