He first came to the limelight when he broke into the under-19 team of Afghanistan in 2019. Soon after when he turned 15 he was roped in by Melbourne Renegades in the 2020-21 edition of Big Bash League (BBL). With his stellar performances in the T20’s he went down in the 2020 auctions at a base price of 30 lakhs rupees but was unable to grab a contract with either of the franchises. This year we will see the bids for him shooting from 20 lakhs.2)IPL 2021 Auction- Nayan Doshi- The Oldest Player 42 years.Nayan Doshi is the son of the former India spinner Dilip Doshi. Nayan has played county cricket for various clubs in the past. He made it to the final list of the 292 players released by BCCI a few days back and created a record by becoming the oldest player ever to register in the IPL auctions. Previously, back in the editions of 2010 and 2011 he represented the Royal Challengers Bangalore and now he is eyeing a comeback to the biggest stage of cricket. Will it be interesting to see whether he will become another Pravin Tambe of the league?3)IPL 2021 Auction- Dawid Malan- The player expected to be in most DemandThe stylish southpaw from England, will be hoping for an IPL contract after his stellar show at the international level in the T20’s. He is currently ranked as the no.1 batsman in the ICC rankings of T20. He came to the fore initially as a low order batsman and eventually evolved as a top order batsman. In the 19 innings he has featured in so far, he has amassed 855 runs with a healthy average of 53.44. It is expected that many franchises will be hunting for him this year.4)IPL 2021 Auction- Glen Maxwell- The Most Controversial PlayerWith a dismal show at the UAE in IPL 2020, Kings XI Punjab has given him the pink slip. Maxwell’s past few IPL’s have been forgettable but every time he shows up in the auctions, he manages to catch the eyeballs of the spenders for himself, such a brand he has created for himself. With a potent show against the Indians in the recently concluded series of ODI’s and T20’s, it is expected that his name will once again ignite the room. Although the former Indian opener and ex-captain and player of KXIP is mighty disappointed with Maxwell.“He (Maxwell) doesn’t take pressure at all (In IPL). He is there only for enjoyment. He will do everything in the match, encourage players, roam around, dance other than scoring runs. As soon as the match is over, if he is getting free drinks, he will take that to his room or go to the room and have a lot of drinks. So, I never felt that he is that serious about the game” Virender Sehwag said.Will be worth watching whether he manages to get a signing this year or not after his previous debacle in the 2020 season.

JCDA was asked to design a water feature along this plane.

By controlling the water temperature the water feature is a functional method of controlling temperature and humidity within the vast atrium space.Save this picture!© Andreas KellerThe diagrid of the building’s structure is reminiscent of cut diamonds. JCDA took this idea to explore the idea of controlling the incoming daylight. The complexity of the cast glass form allowed for a high level of light control through the glass’ internal reflections.

The architecture project by Nuno Ladeiro and Marco Martins, is inserted in the urban core of Vila Nova de Tazem, a small country town near Serra da Estrela, in the north of Portugal, which is characterized by a consolidated urban fabric, whose predominant characteristics are buildings of 2 and 3 floors for residential. Configuration, boundaries of the land and built environment, strongly influence the shape of the building and deployment.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra I FG+SGArchitecture is based mainly on the optimization of commercial and residential space with 15 apartments of various types, T1, T2, T3, served by three vertical communication cores completely independent. The functional organization especially favors the social area of the apartments, not only in terms of area but also as regards the views of Serra da Estrela. Therefore, it was established a direct relationship between rooms and kitchens, creating a more intimate circulation zone closer to the rooms.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra I FG+SGFrom a formal point of view, the project took as its starting point the work of architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and, in particular, an almost unknown work, the “memorial to the Spartacist leaders Karl Liebknecht and Rosa Luxemburg, commissioned by Eduard Fuchs, president of the German Communist Party in Germany” opened on June 13, 1926 and later destroyed by the Nazi regime.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra I FG+SGSince this is clearly a modern architectural option, the authors understand that the constructivist-inspired elementary geometry and the consequences of rationality, associated with aspects of simple logic, are not only manifestations of a bygone era. The use of the geometric cube and the parallelepiped has a universality that continues to “contaminate” the architecture of the XXI century. Therefore, modern rationalism, evident in the facades of this proposal, corresponds in part to a more meaningful calculation of constructivist geometric symbols that in fact are part of modern architecture which is not yet exhausted.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra I FG+SGThe spirit of the place, the black stone, the white of the snow and the desire to revive the memory of modern architecture in Portugal were crucial to the choices made.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessPhotographer Victor Enrich Reshapes an Existing Hotel, 88 TimesArchitecture NewsThe Ten Most Read Articles of 2013MiscProject locationAddress:Largo Joaquim Borges Artiaga, 6290-632 Vila Nova de Tánzem, PortugalLocation to be used only as a reference.

Black & Pink San Diego shows moving film on imprisoned transgender women

first_imgWW photo: Gloria VerdieuSan Diego, Calif. — A film showing the blatant discrimination that transgender people endure in the prison system was shown here on Jan. 12.The screening of “Cruel & Unusual: Transgender Women in Prison,” followed by a discussion about the prison-industrial complex, was hosted by Black & Pink San Diego. The moving and caring documentary describes in detail the experiences of five transgender women incarcerated in prisons in five different states.The U.S. prison system decides where to place inmates based on their genitals, not their gender identity. These women were initially placed in the general population with men. They went through inhumane and humiliating treatment, including rape, violence and solitary confinement. Medical treatment they had been receiving prior to incarceration was denied by prison authorities, who refused to recognize gender identity disorder as a legitimate medical condition.Many people who attended the screening had gone to a rally the previous day to defend the rights of transgender students. The rally urged passage of the School Success and Opportunity Act (AB 1266), a new California bill that guarantees transgender students safe access to facilities and activities in public schools. The rally was called by Canvas for a Cause.After the film, Black & Pink organizer James Messer led a discussion, starting with an update on some of the terminology used, since the film was released in 2006. The discussion included statistics noted in the film, such as 30 percent of transgender people are incarcerated and many are held in solitary confinement.Transgender prisoners, like so many of the more than 2 million people held in U.S. prisons, are there because of economics. Many are homeless, jobless, isolated from family and lack the finances to get adequate legal representation. These women don’t deny that they should pay for the crimes they committed, but listening to the stories many conclude that their crimes are crimes of survival. The discussion also led to possible solutions, with emphasis on raising people’s awareness about the U.S. criminal injustice system.Messer gave an update on the case of CeCe McDonald, who is scheduled to be released in January. Rallies in cities across the U.S., including San Diego, helped force the justice system to reevaluate her case, resulting in her release.Black & Pink has been in existence for nine years, with chapters forming in cities across the U.S. The recently formed San Diego chapter has been meeting for three months. Black & Pink is a strong advocate for the abolition of both the prison-industrial complex and the death penalty. Its website says it is “an open family of LGBTQ prisoners and ‘free world’ allies who support each other.”One of the many B&P projects is an online pen-pal program where LGBTQ prisoners can list their names, addresses and a 25-word ad (nonsexual) describing what they want from a pen pal.The San Diego People’s Power Assembly-United for Racial Justice and the Committee Against Police Brutality sponsored this event at the Malcolm X Library as part of the ongoing struggle for unity in our community. The purpose of these assemblies is to educate our communities about local grassroots organizations and what they are doing.Verdieu gave a welcoming and a background talk on the PPA.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Corn Planting 8% Complete in Indiana

first_img SHARE Corn planting is 8% in Indiana up from 1% from last week but well behind the average of 26%. Only 1% of the soybean crop has been planted compared to the 5 year average of 8% Winter Wheat is 43% joined with only a few fields showing heads. The crop is rated as 62% good to excellent.  Illinois leads the Midwest with 38% of the corn planted while Iowa has 15% of their corn in the ground. Nationally 28% of the corn has been planted.  By Gary Truitt – Apr 28, 2014 Facebook Twitter Corn Planting 8% Complete in Indiana SHARE Corn planting is under way but still well below average for this time of year. Soybean planting has been reported in very limited amounts, primarily in southern districts. While progress seems to be slow relative to 5 year averages, it’s important to note that those averages include the unusually fast years of 2012 and 2010. Some small portion of frost damage has been witnessed in winter wheat as it greens up, and slow-growing pasture has led some farmers to maintain their livestock on hay for the time being. Those not planting focused on tillage and application of fertilizers, herbicides and insecticides, as well as maintenance of equipment and tile. Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Corn Planting 8% Complete in Indiana Continuing warm and dry weather for the week ending April 27 has encouraged farmers to begin planting activities, according to the USDA, NASS, Great Lakes Region. Temperatures in the state ranged from 2º below to 8º degrees above normal, with a high of 83º and a low of 28º. Precipitation amounts ranged from 0.08 to 1.13 inches. Many farmers took advantage of warmer and drier conditions this week to kick off planting, although some others held back in anticipation of cool wet weather predicted for much of next week.

Marathon runner persists after being mauled by a pit bull

Caitlin Keen placed first in that marathon last year, making it the first major race she had won in her 13 years of being a runner. Although after the attack she initially wavered about running this year, she credits her support system and the people in Cincinnati for supporting her, pushing her to run the marathon again. “It’s not really about winning,” Keen said. “It’s about me being back there and showing that their support mattered to me and it helped me. They all are the reason I’m there doing that.”Running is her safe place, zone, realm of expertise and what brings her the most joy. She’s determined that the attack is something that happened to her, but it is not her all the way around.“It’s a long game, not a short one,” Keen said. “You can’t control what happens to you, but you can control what you make of it.”The AttackIt was a cool Sunday morning. Keen planned on running 15 miles before meeting up with a friend. After eight miles she stopped at her car to check her phone.  Her friend was running 15 minutes late. She knew she could squeeze in a few more miles. She looked down at her watch to check the time at her turn around point. When she looked up, a large grey-brown pit bull was lunging toward her. Keen put her arms up to block the dog. It bit her right arm and drug her to the ground.“It was a couple of seconds but it felt like forever,” Keen said. The dog let go of her arm. As Keen tried running away the dog attacked again. This time he bit her left side and lower back, dragging her down a second time.Keen fought back. “I tried to kick him with my right leg, not realizing he had mauled half of my lower back, so I didn’t kick him with as much force as I wanted to,” Keen said. “It bought me a little more time to run away, but it turned into a series of him jumping and biting me.”Keen’s screams tore through the morning calm. A woman running on the trails heard Keen and rushed to help. The woman threw a large rock at the dog to divert its attention. “She kept her eyes on the dog,” Keen said. “I allowed my eyes forward and was trying not to fall over, and that’s when I looked down and saw blood all down the side of me. My pants were completely ripped, shredded into two pieces and my shirt was stained red.”@lululemon I was attacked by a pitbull on my run yesterday. What’s your “new shirt for dog attack” policy? #thiswasmyfavoriteshirt pic.twitter.com/V2T0wLLAB0— Caitlin Keen (@CaitSouth) March 4, 2019Tyler Caviness was walking his two dogs. The two dogs caught the pit bull’s attention, which gave Caviness enough time to grab the dog’s collar and restrain it.Caviness and the woman called 911. As they waited with Keen for help, the dog’s owner showed up.The owner was a homeless woman, who Keen regards as a “train hopper.” Keen said the woman had been under the Hulen Street bridge near the train tracks. She told Keen a friend was watching her dog while she went to the bathroom. She hadn’t seen the attack..She yelled at Caviness, who was restraining her dog, and demanded the dog back. She even tried to yank the collar away from Caviness, but he refused to give the dog back until help arrived.Keen said the woman did not react to the blood on her shirt or the bites, cuts and scratches on her body. “She sat there, and she started crying but never said anything to me at all,” Keen said. “She just sat there and was upset about her dog.”Keen was taken by an ambulance to Baylor Scott and White All Saints Medical Center, where she was examined and received a tetanus shot and stitches. She was advised not to run for two weeks.VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISEDThe dog, named Taco, was quarantined for 10 days at Animal Care and Control. Taco was registered as a danger dog in Fort Worth, but Keen said she does not know what happened to the dog or its owner. Running AgainThe first time Keen returned to Trinity Trails, she brought along a can of pepper spray and a friend. “My first run back was anxiety ridden,” said Keen. “The first time I got to that area, my body reacted more than my mind. My legs seized up, I felt sick all over, like my body was reacting to what it knew had happened there.”Keen said the hardest part was understanding where her body was physically and her mentality. “It was like I couldn’t make the decision really about how I felt because you’re supposed to feel better physically, but emotionally you don’t.” Keen said. But the healing process hasn’t sidelined her dreams. In August, she plans to start training for the 2020 Olympic Trials, which are in Atlanta on February 29.“I love doing other things, and I’m excited to make myself miss running again,” Keen said. “I think you have to let it go for a little while until you’re like I miss this and I want to go do it and it lights your fire.”Running has been a major part of Keen’s life for the past 13 years. She said the dog attack was an outlier situation that is now part of her story, and she’s not going to let it define her.“I think running forces you to dig deep into who you really are and how much you can give and what you’re capable of, and it means so much to me because it’s helped me become who I am,” said Keen.

Presidential inauguration must not eclipse coup’s impact on press freedom

first_img Reports Follow the news on Honduras News Organisation to go further HondurasAmericas Help by sharing this information Coinciding with Porfirio Lobo Sosa’s inauguration today as the country’s new president, Reporters Without Borders and six other organisations are releasing a report on the state of press freedom in Honduras since the 28 June coup d’état (available in Spanish). The report is the result of a joint fact-finding visit to Honduras from 1 to 7 November.The other six organisations are Article 19, World Association of Newspapers/Asociación de Entidades Periodísticas Argentina (WAN/ADEPA), World Association of Community Radio Broadcasters (AMARC), International Federation of Journalists (IFJ), International Media Support (IMS) and FreeVoice.Bearing in mind the report’s recommendations, Reporters Without Borders would like to spell out its position on Honduras.The 28 June coup led to a major crackdown on news media that remained loyal to ousted President Manuel Zelaya or simply opposed the coup. The military occupation of Radio Progreso, the closures, disruption and attacks on Canal 36 TV, Radio Globo and Radio Uno, the sabotaging of online news media (El Libertador, Revistazo and El Patriota) and community radio stations (Radio Marcala and Radio Coco Dulce), the financial blackmailing and harassment of the Diario Tiempo newspaper and the suppression of programmes hosted by civil society organisations such as Cofadeh and women’s rights groups are all evidence of the sidespread censorship that has been taking place.There have also been also serious acts of violence and, more recently, the murder of Walter Tróchez, a young human rights activist.At the same time, this coup would never have succeeded without the support of the country’s leading news media, owned by politicians and big businessmen who did not hesitate to expose their own staff to reprisals from an angry population. The widely-covered coup also posed a major dilemma for our organisation. How were we to defend the Honduran press when we knew that part of it had endorsed this flouting of democratic principles?The coup and its consequences did not end with the 29 November elections, which the de facto authorities hoped would resolve the crisis they had caused. The problems could drag on if the government installed today does not quickly adopt measures to restore the rule of law, pluralism and civil liberties, including press freedom.This report’s recommendations include reform of the legislation governing media regulation and recognition of community radio stations as a matter of priority. Four of the seven organisations – IMS, FreeVoice, AMARC and Reporters Without Borders – have decided to help pay for Radio Coco Dulce, recently torched by arsonists, to become operational again.The seven organisations also call on Honduras to bring its legislation on access to information and press offences into line with international standards and they hope that the authorities will guarantee the safety of journalists. Finally, they call for an eventual dialogue among the media, human rights groups and civil society with the aim of putting the country back on the road of democracy.
