Break comes just in time for injured Krishna

first_imgAfter one-and-a-half years of intense training and competitions, Krishna Poonia has finally got a break and the ace discus thrower is recovering from her knee injury before she gets back in action in January.It was her knee injury during the Commonwealth Games which had almost forced her to shelve her Asian Games plans but the Athletics Federation of India (AFI) insisted her to go ahead for the Guangzhou event where she bagged a bronze medal.Ever since her Commonwealth Games gold medal, Krishna has been on a felicitation spree and is also consulting various doctors for her injured left knee, which she believes cost her a gold at last month’s Asian Games.With her sights firmly set on the London Olympics, Krishna said she is not ready to risk her knee any further and wants to be back in training in the first week of January.”Initially, I thought it (knee) would require surgery but we have consulted various doctors and they have suggested a few exercises,” Krishna told M AIL T ODAY on the sidelines of the Stree Shakti function where she was felicitated for her recent achievements.”I think it shouldn’t take more than 15- 20 days before I am fully fit and I hope to get back to training from January 1,” she added.Krishna sustained the injury in her second attempt at the Commonwealth Games but she had done enough in the first throw itself which was good enough to get her a gold. At the Asian Games too, it was her first throw which won her a bronze as after that her performance kept deteriorating.advertisementHowever, Krishna is well aware of her abilities and is confident that her best is reserved for the London Olympics in 2012.”It was a 61.94m throw that won me a bronze medal but during training sessions I have had better throws than that and that too on consistent basis.”I am sure I’ll be able to win a medal at the next Olympics and we have already planned a roadmap for that because I want to peak at the right time. It is very difficult for athletes to maintain their form throughout the year.”Though the World Championships in August is not what I am aiming for but it will be ideal to gauge my preparations,” Krishna said.But the journey hasn’t been easy by any means for Krishna, who hasn’t been able to spend much time with her nine- year- old son.last_img read more

Mahela Jayawardene to take over from Rikcy Ponting as Mumbai Indians head coach

first_imgMahela Jayawardene has been appointed the head coach of Mumbai Indians from the next season of the Indian Premier League. The franchise announced on Friday that he will replace Ricky Ponting, who had been with the Mumbai franchise for the past four seasons. Ponting had spent four long years with the team in various roles – as a player, an advisory role under John Wright and then he took over as the full time head coach from Wright.Ponting was appointed as the captain of the Mumbai Indians in 2013 and the former Aussie skipper played a key role in Mumbai’s first triumph. He selflessly dropped himself from the squad as he failed to perform, paving the way for Rohit Sharma to lead the side to their maiden IPL title. He also guided Mumbai to their second title in 2015 as the head coach, he oversaw a dramatic turnaround after Mumbai lost the first five matches of the season.As Jayawardene takes over from Ponting, he will hope to replicate the success as well. The 39-year-old Sri Lankan batsman brings a lot of experience with him on the table. The former Sri Lanka captain recently served as the batting consultant for England ahead of their Test series against Pakistan in the UAE.Jayawardene played for Kings XI Punjab, Kochi Tuskers Kerala and Delhi Daredevils in the IPL.Paltan, our new Head coach, @MahelaJay has a special message for you.

first_imgChennai, Jul 7 (PTI) Rajiv Sethu of Honda Ten10 Racing produced a blistering lap to grab the pole position ahead of reigning champion Jagan Kumar in the premium Super Sport Indian class as the second round of the MRF MMSC FMSCI Indian National Motorcycle Racing Championship began here today. Also topping the qualifying session in their respective categories were Mithun Kumar of Honda Ten10 Racing (Pro-Stock 165cc), Deepak Ravikumar (Super Sport Indian 300-400cc) and Apex Racing Academy?s Aishwarya Pissay (Girls, Stock up to 165cc). Sethu, the 22-year old from Chennai, who has been improving with each outing and a regular in the FIM Asia Road Racing Championship, clocked the fastest lap of one minute 59.344 seconds while TVS racings Jagan Kumar, who went out at the fag end of the session after sorting out his bike and managed just three laps, had a best of 02:00.396). KY Ahamed, also of TVS Racing, completed the front row with a 02:00.497.

Actors now know it is time to get into characters: Ashwiny

first_imgBy Shubha DubeyPanaji, Nov 24 (PTI) From Aamir Khan doing a “Dangal” to Salman Khan breaking stereotypes with “Sultan”, Bollywood superstars have started experimenting with roles on screen, and director Ahswiny Iyer Tiwari believes the reason for this shift is the realisation that cliche will not sell any more.Tiwari, who had young Swara Bhaskar playing a mother to a teenage girl in her first Bollywood directorial venture “Nil Battey Sannata”, says as a filmmaker she feels actors now have more options in terms of characters.In an interview with PTI on the sidelines of IFFI, the director says, “All the actors are aware about the shift in cinema. They all know that it is time to get into characters rather than just being themselves.”Tiwari says actors like Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt are easily shifting through films like “Judwaa 2” and “Humpty Sharma…” to “Badlapur” and “Udta Punjab”.”They know what is working. We are in a very good state of Indian cinema because we can make all kind of movies. The actors have options in terms of roles. And we have a society which accepts them in different characters. It is commendable to see our actors working in such a manner.”Tiwari is known for her slice-of-life cinema and her second film “Bareilly Ki Barfi” received both critical and commercial success.The director, whose next will revolve around the sports of Kabaddi, believes films, which were popular during the 70s and the 80s, have made a comeback as audiences now prefer to watch stories “about them”.advertisement”In the era of consumerism, where everything is available on the click of a button, it is tough to figure out where we belong. My idea is to go back to where we come from and cherish the things which we all had.”We are a country of the youngest generation, We have grown up with certain values and it is important for me to remind the audiences about it. Why even today Basu Chatterjee and Hrishikesh Mukherjee are relevant? Because they talk about life. This is why lice-of-life cinema is currently working well.”She may have a realistic approach towards her storytelling but Tiwari also believes in incorporating aspirational elements in her films.”I believe a lot in understanding the audience. It is important to involve their insights in cinema. In movies, it is important to have a fine balance between aspirational stuff and the real things. It is like people may identify with my characters, but at the same time they probably will aspire to dress like them.”Tiwari says entertaining the audience is her soul motive as a filmmaker and she enjoys interacting with her viewers to understand their thought process.”I am making films for the audiences, to entertain them. I am there because of their love for the kind of cinema I make. So it is very important to have a dialogue with them. I want them to keep helping me in moving ahead,” she says.

He notes that junior Cooper Bateman is “trending down”, redshirt freshman Blake Barnett is “improving” and true freshman Jalen Hurts has “won” the team over.Terry implies that even if Hurts isn’t named the starter at the beginning of the season, he expects him to be the quarterback by mid-season.

Nokia 4.2 review: Premium and compact Android One phone on a budget

first_imgNokia 4.2 review: Premium and compact Android One phone on a budgetLaunched in India at Rs 10,990, the Nokia 4.2 offers a premium glass design, waterdrop display and the promise of pure Android Pie experience. It also comes with a couple of interesting new buttons. Read our Nokia 4.2 review to find out more.advertisement Sanket Vijayasarathy New DelhiMay 7, 2019UPDATED: May 8, 2019 11:32 IST 7.5/10HIGHLIGHTSThe Nokia 4.2 price in India has been set at Rs 10,990.The Nokia 4.2 offers a premium design, a notification power button and Google Assistant button.The Android One phone is powered by a Snapdragon 439 chipset paired with stock Android Pie software.HMD Global has been taking things slow in India this year, a stark contrast to 2018 where the company was quick to launch its phones in the country. The company announced a handful of phones at MWC 2019 and it has taken a little over two months for them to start appearing in India. The first launch comes in the form of the Nokia 4.2, a premium-looking Android One smartphone with a few unique tricks up its sleeve.The Nokia 4.2 is priced at Rs 10,990, which is interestingly similar to the price of the Nokia 5.1 Plus when it launched last year. You might be confused with the naming scheme, but it’s worth noting that this is the first Nokia 4 phone the company has launched. Calling it Nokia 4.2 just keeps it up-to-date with every other phone in the company’s portfolio. In our Nokia 4.2 review, we take a look at what the Android One phone has to offer and whether it is worth its asking price.Nokia 4.2 DesignYou can trust HMD Global to offer some good-looking Nokia phones at really affordable prices, and the Nokia 4.2 is yet another proof of that. The device offers certain similarities with the Nokia 5.1 Plus and Nokia 6.1 Plus, especially from the back. The rear panel is made up of a 2.5D curved glass to give it a premium look, which feels even better when the phone falls in the affordable segment. In Black, the phone certainly looks better than what the price would have you believe. But the Nokia 4.2 really stands out in the new Pink Sand hue that is likely to be an instant favourite.advertisementThe rear panel also sees a fingerprint sensor and a vertical dual camera setup just above the sensor. The Nokia and Android One branding are present too. The Nokia 4.2 is a compact phone, which is both convenient and annoying. Convenient because it’s easy to use with one hand and lightweight to carry around at 161 grams. Annoying because the fingerprint sensor is lower than the natural reach of your finger, so you’re likely to touch the LED flash more often than the sensor. The Nokia 4.2 is still a unique phone despite offering a familiar design. This is because of two new buttons on the frame of the device. The first is the power button on the right side of the frame that now gets a notification light built in. The “breathing light” as HMD calls it will glow and show a halo of white light around the power button whenever you receive a message notification or a missed call.One of the benefits of having a LED power button is that you can see the light glow whether you place the device face up or down on a surface. The button glows brightly and the white light looks especially attractive in the dark. If you find the notification light too distracting, you can disable it in Settings. The next key feature is the Google Assistant button on the left side of the frame. This is the first Nokia phone to come with a dedicated Google Assistant button and it makes sense for HMD to offer this feature. The adoption of Assistant is growing rapidly, especially in countries like India and having a button to quickly launch the AI should make it easier and more convenient than ever.You can trust HMD Global to offer some good-looking Nokia phones at really affordable prices, and the Nokia 4.2 is yet another proof of that.A single press will quickly launch the Assistant AI, while a double press will bring up relevant information for you and a long press will allow you to make longer requests. All the buttons around the polycarbonate frame, including the volume button, are easy to reach and provide a nice haptic response. The Assistant button is smarter and more usable than the Bixby button on some Samsung phones, but you won’t be able to remap the Assitant key to launch anything else.The Nokia 4.2 measures 148.95×71.30×8.39 and I feel this is a really pleasant size and slim enough for one-handed usage. You also get a 3.5mm headphone jack on the top, a single speaker grille on the bottom next to a microUSB port rather than a Type-C port. The Nokia 4.2 also gets a triple card slot that can store two Nano SIM cards and a microSD card.Nokia 4.2 DisplayThe Nokia 4.2 sports a 5.71-inch display with an HD+ (1520×720) resolution and a 19:9 aspect ratio. The screen size is slightly smaller than what you get on the Nokia 5.1 Plus. While HMD calls it an edge-to-edge display, there is still a substantial chin on the bottom and the top and side bezels look visible as well. A U-shaped droplet notch is present on the top to make the display as distraction-free as possible.advertisement The display offers deep and pleasant colours, especially the blues and reds. This makes the app icons look attractive and the resolution is sharp enough to read texts. You get a pixel density of 295ppi, which is better than the Redmi 7 and Galaxy M10. Brightness levels, however, are quite poor and so are the viewing angle, making the screen hard to read under bight and intense sunlight. In comparison, the Nokia 5.1 Plus offers far better brightness levels at 457 nits.When it comes to watching videos on YouTube or Netflix or playing games on the Nokia 4.2, the display is pretty sharp and clear despite a 720p resolution. Unless you’re really squinting your eyes to look for pixelation, you should be happy with the display. Interestingly, DRM Info reveals the Nokia 4.2 comes with Widevine L1 certification, which means platforms like Netflix and Prime Video could support true HD streaming on the Nokia 4.2 in the near future.Nokia 4.2 Performance and SoftwareInternally, the Nokia 4.2 is powered by a 2.0Ghz octa-core Snapdragon 439 chipset paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of inbuilt storage with support for expandability up to 400GB via a microSD card. This isn’t a snappy chipset and you will realise that from the get-go. The performance is a bit sluggish whether you’re opening and loading apps or scrolling through social media apps like Twitter or Facebook. It lacks that fluidity and speed that you get on the Nokia 5.1 Plus with Helio P60 SoC.The Snapdragon 439 is based on a 12nm process, which makes it relatively more power efficient than 14nm-based processors like the Snapdragon 450. And the results can be seen as the chipset keeps battery drain to a minimum, even while playing games.The Nokia 4.2 won’t deliver a blazing fast performance, but the experience will be smooth enough thanks to an optimised an up-to-date stock Android Pie software.Speaking of gaming, the Nokia 4.2 will run games like Asphalt 9 and PUBG on low graphics. While playing Asphalt, there were only a few instances where I noticed drops in frame rate or stuttering, but the gameplay was mostly a smooth experience. PUBG runs smoothly as well on low graphics, but expect some pixelation and low clarity to follow. It’s also worth noting that the Nokia 4.2 does not come with a gyroscope sensor, which means you cannot use the feature in PUBG as well. All of this is to say that the Nokia 4.2 isn’t a phone meant for gaming and the competition offers far better GPU performance.The Nokia 4.2 won’t keep heavy gaming apps open in the background for too long as a way to improve RAM management and limit battery drain. With 3GB of RAM, you will be able to switch between a few lightweight apps easily, but like I said earlier, the experience will be sluggish.advertisement One advantage that the Nokia 4.2 offers compared to any other phone in this segment is the experience of stock and up-to-date Android. As an Android One device, the Nokia 4.2 runs on a clean and pure Android 9 Pie software. You get all of Pie’s features such as gesture navigation, Adaptive Brightness and Adaptive Battery as well as Digital Wellbeing and App Actions.The stock Android Pie software is nicely optimised so it never feels laggy at any point and neither will you encounter app crashes too often. HMD is also emphasising a lot on the software experience getting “Better Everyday” which is basically a promise of regular software security updates. The Nokia 4.2 is also one of the few phones in this segment that is guaranteed to get Android Q and Android R in the future. It will be interesting to see how well the Nokia 4.2 performance over a longer period of time.You can either use the fingerprint sensor or face recognition to unlock the Nokia 4.2. The former is not snappy, but still faster than face unlock. It is also more reliable to use the fingerprint sensor as face unlock tends to work poorly in dimly lit environments. Call quality over the earpiece is really clear although the volume levels could be better. The loudspeaker, on the other hand, can get really loud while the audio quality is clear but can get pitchy at times. During the review period, I didn’t encounter any call drops and the phone is pretty good at latching on to a signal.The earphones that come with the box are strictly average with sound quality quite muffled and poor. But I am glad to see that the Nokia 4.2 supports aptX codec, so you could get yourself a nice pair of aptX-supported earphones like the Bullets Wireless and enjoy better audio experience.Nokia 4.2 CameraThe dual camera setup on the back of the Nokia 4.2 offers a 13-megapixel primary camera with f/2.2 aperture paired with a 5-megapixel secondary camera for depth sensing. On the front, the Nokia 4.2 gets an 8-megapixel f/2.0 selfie camera. The camera app is quite simple to use. You have a few modes on the bottom like Photo, Video, Pro and Live Bokeh for both the primary and selfie cameras. The panorama, Google Lens and time lapse can be found by expanding the box button on the bottom left side.The Nokia 4.2’s cameras tend to disappoint as it shows potential of being able to capture good photos only to be crushed by a slow shutter. This leads to a lot of hazy and blurry photos and you’ll struggle to capture one clear still picture. The autofocus adds to the problem as it often fails to lock on to a subject longer than a second.IMAGE SAMPLESIf you do manage to capture a clear still in daylight shots, you will be pleased with the colours. Photos captured don’t offer a lot of dynamic range or brightness. The Live Bokeh mode can’t do much about subject separation if the camera isn’t able to focus on the subject.Low-light photography is avoidable on the Nokia 4.2. Pictures generally look blurry and noisy. And the same goes for selfies in low-light. Selfies in daytime however, look decent although facial features tend to look soft and grainy. Videos are best shot outdoors for good brightness and dynamic range. The quality is decent, but the dual microphone on the top and bottom means you’ll capture some really crisp and clear audio while recording.Nokia 4.2 BatteryThe Nokia 4.2 houses a 3,000mAh battery, which may not sound like a lot, but it is plenty for this phone. Thanks to an optimised Android Pie software with Adaptive battery and a power efficient Snapdragon 439 chipset, the Nokia 4.2 can last really long in between charges. On an average, you should easily get a full day battery life if not more depending on your usage. On light days where you’re simply using the device for messages and some social media browsing, you should be left with around 30-40 per cent battery in the tank by bedtime. If you add a few hours of gaming or streaming videos, you will probably need to charge the device overnight.I say overnight because it takes a really long time to charge the phone. The Nokia 4.2 comes with a measly 5W charger that will juice up the device in around 3 hours.Should you buy the Nokia 4.2?The Nokia 4.2 is one of the better looking phones that you’ll find at around Rs 10,000. The glass design combined with some really attractive colours, especially the Pink Sand option will no doubt find a lot of takers. The fact that you’re also getting a device with a waterdrop display and stock Android Pie are some of the bonuses here.That being said, the Nokia 4.2 isn’t the fastest phone that you can get at this price point and neither does it offer a great set of cameras. In fact, the price of the Nokia 4.2 could have been much better. At Rs 10,990, the Nokia 4.2 finds itself among a very competitive bunch of phones like the Redmi Note 7 Pro and Realme 3 Pro that are available for Rs 3,000 more. You also have the Redmi Note 7 and Realme 2 Pro that offer better hardware and cameras at the same or lower price point.Lastly, the biggest competition to the Nokia 4.2 is HMD’s own Nokia 5.1 Plus, which is now available at Rs 10,490. In fact, the Nokia 5.1 Plus can often be found for much cheaper during sales on e-commerce platforms. The Nokia 5.1 Plus offers better hardware with the same software experience, making it difficult to suggest the Nokia 4.2 for online customers. This is perhaps why the company is largely focusing on selling the Nokia 4.2 offline via partners like Chroma and Reliance.Nokia 4.2 review7.5/10ProsPremium glass designBreathing light power buttonStock Android PieConsLaggy performanceAverage camerasSlow chargingPrice could have been betterGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

Japan Economy shrank at 25 per cent annualized rate

first_imgTOKYO — Japan’s economy shrank at an annualized rate of 2.5 per cent in July-September, a worse contraction than preliminary data indicated last month.The earlier data put the contraction at 1.2 per cent, as consumer spending, investment and exports fell.The revised data released Monday by the government Cabinet Office shows seasonally adjusted gross domestic product — the total value of a nation’s goods and services — dipped 0.6 per cent in the third quarter from the previous quarter.The data showed private demand and investment fell at a deeper pace than the initial estimate.Japan’s economy, the world’s third largest, grew in April-June, but contracted the quarter before that.

While welcoming the Uzbek decision to abolish the death penalty as of 2008, Mr. Annan encourages the authorities to immediately introduce a moratorium on the passing of death sentences, stresses the importance of implementing recommendations by UN treaty bodies and urges them to cooperate with UN experts and officials, particularly in allowing access.“The lack of response from the Government of Uzbekistan to the call for the establishment of an international commission of inquiry to examine the facts and circumstances of the Andijan events coupled with the persistence of allegations of serious human rights violations, demonstrate that there has been no improvement since… [December 2005],” he states in his latest report on human rights in the country.“Of particular concern is the deteriorating situation of human rights defenders and the increased restrictions on the activities of civil society, including non-governmental organizations,” says Mr. Annan, who also quotes an independent Special Rapporteur speaking of “ample evidence” of torture by police and other security forces. “The Secretary-General urges the Government of Uzbekistan to spare no effort to protect and safeguard the rights of eyewitnesses to the Andijan events and their families, as well as journalists, human rights defenders and other members of civil society,” it adds, referring to the clashes between Uzbek troops and protesters that reportedly left hundreds dead.Quoting from a wide range of sources, including UN, European Union and others, the report includes the concerns raised by UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Louise Arbour when she told the Human Rights Council that the closed-door policies and denial of access were sources of grave concern, and regretted that her Office had also been prevented from assessing the trials into the Andijan events.“Since mid-May 2005, OHCHR and the special procedures of the Commission on Human Rights have received a significant amount of credible information on harassment and detention of eyewitnesses of the events in Andijan, as well as journalists, media officers and human rights defenders who reported on these events,” the report states.It also highlights concerns over asylum seekers and refugees who fled Andijan and have been detained or returned to Uzbekistan, including fears for the safety of five men who were returned by Kyrgyz authorities in August. The Uzbek Government claimed fewer than 200 people were killed in the unrest. However, more than 450 of the Uzbek refugees subsequently provided testimony to Ms. Arbour’s office regarding the events of 13 May 2005 and a report in July concluded that based on consistent, credible testimony, military and security forces committed grave human rights violations that day. Noting that Uzbek authorities called for the closure of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) office in Uzbekistan earlier this year, it further states this has “weakened protection of human rights of refugees in the country. Calling on the Government to work closely with the enhanced Human Rights Council, Mr. Annan further calls for Special Rapporteurs and Representatives to be allowed to visit the country and follow-up on their work, highlighting in particular remarks made in April by the Special Rapporteur on the question of torture.“There is ample evidence that both police and other security forces have been and are continuing to systematically practise torture, in particular against dissidents or people who are opponents of the regime,” the report quotes the Rapporteur as saying. read more

People power saves historic Somerset pub as villagers raise £1m to keep

first_imgVolunteers spent an estimated 1,000 hours sorting out the pub’s garden and 25 skips of rubbish were removed from inside the pub during renovations – and 15 tons of earth shifted by hand.New landlord James Dixon, 36, said: “It’s fantastic, the whole thing has been a fantastic story from beginning to end.”It’s history, everyone bunched together and got behind the project.”It’s a pub born from love. Everyone has the pub’s best interests at heart.”Every pub should be protected from developers, more should be done. This is a fine example of what happens when a pub is adored.” In March 2012, it was put up for sale by then-owners Punch Taverns and sold to the highest bidder. They revealed plans to turn it into a residential property, forcing the village to form a committee with the aim of buying it back.The pub’s rescue has been partly down to the Conservative’s 2011 Localism Act which meant it was listed on Bath & North East Somerset’s Assets of Community Value list in February 2013. The council can approve it if its found the building “furthers the social wellbeing or social interests of the local community”. The pub has been around since the 15th Century “I would go to the pub very Sunday up until then. It was an honour to be asked to pour the first pint – a last bit of fame in my old age.”The village pub is surrounded by a mix of Georgian homes and thatched cottages, and would attract walkers rambling in the surrounding valleys.According to the carved stone above the door, the current building has stood since 1674 – but historians say the pub dates back to 1498. People power has saved an historic Grade-II listed pub after villagers raised £1m to keep it from developers.The 15th century Packhorse Inn in South Stoke, Somerset, closed its doors six years ago and was sold with plans to turn it into flats.But locals were able to stop the development going ahead by using the 2011 Localism Act to turn the pub into a “community asset of value”, so its buyers had to sell it.Villagers managed to raise £1,025,000 through 470 investors – paying as little as £50 each – and they bought it themselves.It was finally reopened on Sunday by Brian Perkins, 87, who was born in the pub when it was owned owned by his family.He said: “I was very sad when the pub closed a few years ago.

Vast Resources gets green light to proceed with mining at Baita Plai

first_imgVast Resources plc, the AIM-listed mining company with operating mines in Romania and Zimbabwe, wishes to advise that following the 10 October 2018 announcement of the formal approval by ANRM of the grant of an Association Licence to African Consolidated Resources srl (AFCR) the company’s 80% subsidiary, AFCR and Baita SA, the holder of the head licence, have now signed the pre-agreed commercial contract, and AFCR now has the right to mine at the Baita Plai polymetallic mine in Romania (Baita Plai). Baita Plai is a skarn deposit comprising several veins in calcareous sediments in eight distinct pipes, with a 1.8 Mt copper-silver-zinc-lead-gold-tungsten-molybdenum orebody at 6% copper equivalent (Russian Reserves and Resources Reporting System) within the mining licence area.Andrew Prelea, CEO, commented: “The commercial Association Contract has now been executed and the agreed amount of money settled. We will now deploy the start-up team to Baita Plai to commence the implementation of the re-start programme. We intend to publish the start-up works programme in order for shareholders to keep track of the re-start schedule over the coming days and provide regular updates over the course of the next six months as we target initial production from Baita Plai in H1 2019. This is a momentous day for Vast as we move forward with Baita Plai, alongside our numerous other production, development and appraisal assets in Romania and Zimbabwe, and target mid-tier multi-commodity producer status.”Vast Resources plc, the AIM listed mining company with operating mines in Romania and Zimbabwe, wishes to advise that following the 10 October 2018 announcement of the formal approval by ANRM of the grant of an Association Licence to African Consolidated Resources srl (AFCR) the Companys 80% subsidiary, AFCR and Baita SA, the holder of the head licence, have now signed the pre-agreed commercial contract, and AFCR now has the right to mine at the Baita Plai Polymetallic Mine in Romania (Baita Plai).Baita Plai is located in the Apuseni Mountains, Transylvania, an area which hosts Romania’s largest polymetallic and uranium mines. The project is 50 km north-west of Romania’s largest Au-Cu mine, Rosia Montana (>10 Moz Au) and 52 km north-west of Roșia Poieni, which contains over one billion tonnes of porphyry copper ore. Due to lack of capital investment and modernisation the Baita Plai mine became uneconomic and was put on care and maintenance in 2013. The mine benefits from full infrastructure including underground, surface and processing equipment and an EU registered and operational tailings facility, but the plant and equipment will require some rehabilitation.last_img read more

Cosplay Gallery Emerald City Comic Con 2018

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Emerald City Comic Con welcomed the enthusiastically nerdy masses from March 1st through March 4th at the Washington State Convention Center in the center of downtown Seattle. As the first Reedpop show of the convention season, the four-day event felt like the official beginning of the 2018 convention schedule with approximately over 90,000 people in attendance. With a star-studded guest list of comics creators, actors, and musical performers, ECCC was a multimedia event that had something to offer for every attendee.After years of hearing nothing but great things about Emerald City Comic Con, I was really looking forward to checking out the show and seeing how it stacked up to Reedpop’s New York Comic Con, and it did not disappoint. The convention center layout featured dedicated floors for the main exhibition hall, artist alley, gaming, celebrity meet-and-greets, and more. Despite the inevitable convention crowds, the convention was actually quite easy to navigate with this layout.A major highlight of Emerald City Comic Con was an artist alley overflowing with comic legends and fan favorites, including Babs Tarr, Mike and Laura Allred, Adam Hughes, and so many more. Although ECCC is a large multimedia show, it’s a convention that heavily values the comics arts in its programming, with the charity art auction, the sheer size of the artist alley, and the impressive showcase of comics guests.One of my favorite things about Emerald City Comic Con was seeing all of the talented cosplay on display all weekend. From New Gods to Twin Peaks to Devilman Crybaby, so many attendees were dressed to the nines while representing their favorite fandoms. Luckily, I was able to capture just a sample of ECCC’s best-dressed heroes, villains, and everything in between – check out some of the amazing cosplayers I met in Seattle!All photos by Betty Felon.View as: One Page Slides1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24. 25. 26. 27. 28. 29. 30. last_img read more

NEW YORK NY – Paul Taylor a towering figure in

first_img NEW YORK, N.Y. – Paul Taylor, a towering figure in American modern dance who, in a career that spanned more than six decades, created a vast body of work that reflected both the giddy highs and the depraved lows of the human condition, has died. He was 88.Spokeswoman Lisa Labrado told The Associated Press that Taylor died Wednesday at Beth Israel Medical Center in Manhattan. The cause of death was not immediately available, but Labrado said Taylor was in hospice care.Taylor kept working well into his 80s, venturing into his company’s Manhattan studios from his Long Island home to choreograph two new pieces a year, and 147 in all.“The works that satisfy me the most? They’re the ones I’m working on,” he told The Associated Press in a 2011 interview, while rehearsing “To Make Crops Grow,” his 137th dance. “It’s the work process that I like. Once it’s done, I want to put everything out of my mind. I’d rather forget it.”The Paul Taylor Dance Company is one of the world’s most successful contemporary troupes, touring the globe year-round and able to pull off an annual three-week season at Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch Theater. Taylor dancer Michael Novak, named by Taylor as artistic director designate earlier this year, becomes the second artistic director in the company’s 64-year history.“Paul Taylor was one of the world’s greatest dancemakers, and his passing deeply saddens not only those of us who worked with him, but also people all over the world whose spirits have been touched by his incomparable art,” Novak said in a statement. “We are grateful for your love and support as we begin to carry on his legacy with the utmost fidelity and devotion.”Audiences often appreciated Taylor’s newer pieces, but his signature work remained “Esplanade,” from 1975, an explosion of joy and athleticism, with Taylor’s limber dancers running, skipping, hurling themselves into each other’s arms like missiles and tumbling to the floor with abandon, all to two Bach concertos.The pairing of classical music — especially 18th-century Baroque — with a very modern style of dance was one of Taylor’s hallmarks. But he also went far and wide with his musical choices, scoring his works not only with symphonies and concertos but ragtime, tango, barbershop quartet and even elevator music. In “Big Bertha” (1970), set in an amusement park, he used music from a band machine acquired from a St. Louis museum. “That gave me the idea for the dance,” he said. “Often one starts with an idea and then looks for music, but it works both ways.”“Big Bertha,” though, was most notable for its disturbing content, reflecting Taylor’s penchant for giving equal time to the darkest depths of human nature. “Bertha” is a robotic carnival creature. A wholesome 1950s family — a couple and their daughter — comes out to the fun fair to play, but after feeding coins into Bertha’s slot, slips into depravity; by the end, the father has raped and killed his pig-tailed young daughter. Even a lighter work, “Company B,” a set of jaunty dances like the jitterbug to the music of the Andrews Sisters, has its dark elements: Look closely amid the joyful dances and you see young men as soldiers, shot and crumpling to the ground.A strong message always emanated from Taylor’s work, said dance writer Allan Ullrich. “You know he’s always saying something,” Ullrich said. “There should be two words written on his tombstone: ‘He communicated.’”Paul Belleville Taylor, Jr. was born July 29, 1930, during the Great Depression. He began his life in a town outside Pittsburgh, but spent much of his youth in the Washington, D.C. area. In his whimsically written autobiography, “Private Domain,” he describes a childhood full of boundary-testing moments: A run-in with police after he and a friend steal a baby stroller from a variety store, or a prep-school stunt involving the actual excavation of a coffin.He wound up at Syracuse University, where he studied painting and then joined the swim team, purely to gain scholarship money. College sports was more work than he expected, but at 6-foot tall and with a huge arm span, he was well suited to the sport.Those arms, swinging through space, would become crucial to his dance work. In fact, Taylor’s signature move looks a bit like a swimmer in mid-butterfly stroke, albeit twisted up to the sky.But the desire to dance came as a shock to Taylor: In his sophomore year, he once wrote, he experienced “something stronger than an itch … an unignorable hunch … a flash.” He informed his incredulous swimming coach he was leaving, to dance. “Don’t tell me you’re any good at it,” the coach replied. Taylor couldn’t — at least not yet.Taylor transferred to Juilliard in New York, but first he attended a summer dance course where he met, and learned from, the great modern choreographer Martha Graham. Years later, his name would become forever linked with hers as part of the great trio of modern dance choreographers, along with Merce Cunningham. (Graham died in 1991, Cunningham in 2009.)A year after graduating Juilliard in 1953, Taylor set up his own company, rehearsing in whatever space he could find. He was 24, and his first work was a collaboration with the artist Robert Rauschenberg, “Jack and the Beanstalk.” A year later he joined Graham’s company as a soloist — he would dance there for seven seasons, while continuing to build his own company.In 1956, Taylor choreographed one of his odder, but much-discussed works: “3 Epitaphs,” the oldest work in his company’s repertoire today (it opened the company’s Spring 2013 season at Lincoln Center.)For the score, he chose early New Orleans jazz, the music played at weddings and funerals in the south. He set five peculiar creatures — something like futuristic cavemen — gyrating across the stage, dressed head-to-toe in dark grey unitards, designed by Rauschenberg, with reflectors shining on their heads and hands.In 1959, Taylor collaborated with another giant of dance, George Balanchine, of the New York City Ballet, in his “Episodes.” The great Russian-born ballet master asked him to dance, Taylor has said, “like fly in glass of milk.” Balanchine also offered Taylor a permanent job, but he turned it down, put off by the formal strictures of ballet.“I just wanted to be a modern dancer,” Taylor told the AP in the 2011 interview. “I picked what I wanted to do, and I’ve stuck to that.”Taylor’s own dancing career ended abruptly in 1974, after he collapsed onstage from illness and exhaustion during a performance in Brooklyn. But as a choreographer, he was just getting going: A year later came “Esplanade,” later celebrated as one of the most wondrous works of dance anywhere.And in 1976, he came up with the deliciously odd “Cloven Kingdom,” whose famous “men’s quartet” section was performed in the East Room of the White House in 2010 at a dance event hosted by first lady Michelle Obama. Men in tuxedoes dancing to Baroque music suddenly become four-legged animals, prowling to a drumbeat. The women? They dance daintily in evening wear, then suddenly turn up in metallic headgear from some old sci-fi film.Joy, passion, despair, death, depravity — there were few serious topics Taylor wouldn’t broach. But he was also known for his sense of humour. Sometimes it was merely weird, as in the curious “Phantasmagoria” (2011), which featured a Byzantine nun having a naughty interaction with a toy snake, not to mention an Irish step dancer, a group of Isadora Duncan disciples, a Depression-era Bowery bum and someone who infected everyone with a dancing virus — all to Renaissance music.But at other times it had a classic flair, as in the 1995 “Offenbach Overtures,” a foray into pure comedy and clowning to the spirited music of 19th-century French composer Jacques Offenbach, where buffoonish soldiers mixed with coquettish can-can dancers.“Without a doubt, the humour is in the choreography,” Parisa Khobdeh, a Taylor dancer, once told Dance Magazine. “It’s not something we put on. Paul has a pure talent for timing, for surprising you and the audience.”In his later years, Taylor spent most of his time in his house in Long Island, venturing into Manhattan for events, like the Lincoln Center season, or for a six-week rehearsal period each year for new dances.At one such rehearsal, for “To Make Crops Grow,” Taylor allowed a visiting AP reporter to watch him work. Again and again, he asked a dancer playing a child to repeat one small move: A skip across the stage. It was too fast, too slow, too long, too short. In a quiet voice, he cracked an occasional joke, to reverent laughter from the troupe.The dance had a dark theme: it was based on the famous short story “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson, about a stoning ritual in small-town America. Taylor remarked that he was never at a loss for ideas.“There’s a bottomless pit of ideas in dance,” he said.Taylor has even described choreographing as an addiction.“To put it simply, I make dances because I can’t help it,” he wrote in an essay entitled “Why I Make Dances.”“Working on dances has become a way of life, an addiction that at times resembles a fatal disease. Even so, I’ve no intention of kicking the habit.” Paul Taylor, giant of modern dance, dead at 88 in New York by Jocelyn Noveck, The Associated Press Posted Aug 30, 2018 8:01 am PDT Last Updated Aug 30, 2018 at 9:20 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emailcenter_img FILE – This Jan. 8, 1969 file photo shows dancer-choreographer Paul Taylor in New York.
