New Delhi: Delhi Capitals star Rishabh Pant might have played a stellar role on Sunday to win them the opening game against Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium, but Chennai Super Kings coach Stephen Fleming made it clear that overplanning keeping one player in mind wouldnt help the team. “You have to respect so many players in the tournament and he is one of them. But there are others as well. Have to be sure you don’t overplan. He is one of the great young prospects in Indian cricket. But there is Shikhar Dhawan, Colin Ingram, captain Shreyas Iyer. One thing is to find a weakness, but have to use it well. You must focus on own strength,” he explained.

The bowlers excelled. The fact that we use spinners is one or our tactics, we have seaming bowlers as well to exploit situations. We will spend time to look at the conditions. Getting the combination right is important.” While everyone has spoken about how M.S. Dhoni is in the last stretch of his career, Fleming said he didn’t wish to get into the debate and he primarily wanted to see MS at the 2019 World Cup. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced later”I certainly was hoping he gets through to the World Cup and that he will. Haven’t had discussions about what happens after that. I would want him to carry on for CSK till the end of this cycle. He is training well, playing well and enjoying himself. That is important,” the coach said. Fleming was all praise for senior spinner Harbhajan Singh and said that the off-spinner will definitely be considered for the game against DC. “He was fantastic in the first game. Experience is important. There are a lot of left-handers in the Delhi side. That was discussed in the RCB game as well. We will look to consider that. It is about the skill sets we have. It was a compliment to not having to stick to the overseas quota. We will consider it again tomorrow,” he said. While Ambati Rayudu is playing the IPL, he definitely has his sights on the no.4 spot in India’s World Cup team. But Fleming said that the CSK opener should look to play freely. “He doesn’t have to be conservative with us. Loved him running down the wicket and hitting the fast bowler over the top (against RCB) and that is what we want to see,” he said.
Fez- A rare picture of King Mohammed and Princess Lalla Salma is circulating on social media since Thursday. The picture, which probably dates back to 2002 or 2003, shows the Moroccan monarch and his spouse wearing casual clothes away from any royal protocol.The photo was posted on the page of Mehdi Benkirane, founder and president of Association “Enfantts du Coeur” (Children of the Hear) and CEO of VMM – Les Victoires de la Musique au Maroc (Victory of Music in Morocco). Last October, other pictures of the Moroccan head of state were taken in the United Arab Emirates in which he appeared laid back. The pictures went also viral on social media, especially Facebook. MWN could not verify whether the picture is real or photoshopped. © Morocco World News. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, rewritten or redistributed

In a statement, the Secretary-General also encouraged all Congolese citizens to seize “this historic opportunity” to participate in the consolidation of the country’s democratic institutions.Mr. Guterres also reminded those with a stake in the outcome of their “critical role” in preventing electoral violence, by refraining from any form of provocation and showing maximum restraint in what they say and do.He also urged everyone to protect and ensure safe access to health facilities in Ebola affected areas, amid serious concerns, expressed by the UN health agency, that recent violence in the country’s east could reverse important gains made against the disease and increase transmission.In a separate statement, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the Director General of the UN World Health Organization, said that the agency was doing “doing everything possible” to assist those affected by the deadly Ebola virus disease in eastern DRC despite deteriorating security situation in the region.Protests have erupted in three key towns – Beni, Butembo and Yumbi – following the Government’s decision to postpone elections there, amid fears of Ebola transmission, and an uptick in violence by armed groups.In Beni, protests at Government buildings spilled into an Ebola transit centre, causing panic among both those seeking services as well as health workers.Mr. Tedros said that it would be a “tragedy” for the local population, if the disease were to come back, as they have “already suffered too much.”“Working side by side” with DRC health authorities and partners, the priority is to end the Ebola outbreak, he added, noting “we cannot afford to take a step back at this critical point in the response.”I ‘understand’ health concerns – UN mission headMeanwhile, the head of the UN peacekeeping mission in the DRC, Leila Zerrougui, voiced regret over the postponement of elections in Beni, Butembo and Yumbi, on account of the Ebola outbreak.“I was informed that there was a [health] concern with the hundreds of people passing by and touching a screen…I understand this concern,” Ms. Zerrougui told the UN mission’s radio station, Radio Okapi.“Personally, I regret that the people of Beni [and] Butembo, who have suffered much for years…cannot vote,” she added.To mitigate the threat of Ebola transmission during the elections, the UN mission – known by its French acronym, MONUSCO – is working to place hand-washing and cleaning facilities at the entrance to polling stations, to help allay fears.
Members of the Ohio State field hockey team sing ‘Carmen Ohio’ after a 2-1 loss to Michigan on Nov. 2 at Buckeye Varsity Field.Credit: Grant Miller / Copy chiefOhio State field hockey fell short against top-seeded Maryland, 5-0, in the Big Ten Tournament quarterfinals Thursday morning in Ann Arbor, Mich.Maryland’s Sarah Sprink, the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year, scored a pair of goals in the victory. The junior defender started off the scoring 17 minutes into the game with a goal off a penalty corner from Big Ten Freshman of the Year, midfielder Moira Putsch.With less than 10 minutes to play in the half, Sprink was awarded a penalty stroke, and she connected to give Maryland a 2-0 lead at the half.The Terrapins (17-2, 7-1) didn’t hold up on their attack coming out of the half. Instead, they put the game away with a six-minute onslaught.Freshman defender Carrie Hanks scored in the 42nd minute off a crossing pass from Putsch to start Maryland’s second-half rally.Less than five minutes later, Sprink found space again and found junior midfielder Anna Dessoye for a tip-in goal.For good measure, senior forward Katie Gerzabek scored Maryland’s fifth goal with 22:39 to play to put the game out of reach for the Buckeyes.OSU was outshot, 22-7, and the Terrapins held an 8-3 advantage in penalty corners.Second-team All-Big Ten performer Peanut Johnson got three shots on goal during the game, but the Buckeye junior forward was not able to find the back of the net.OSU finished its season 6-12 after going 6-13 in 2013. The Buckeyes are set to return 12 freshmen next season, including leading scorer Maddy Humphrey, who finished the season with 32 points on 12 goals and eight assists.Johnson is also set to return for her senior season after finishing with a career-high 11 assists and combining with Humphrey for 59 points in 2014.Since defeating Indiana on the road to get coach Anne Wilkinson’s 300th victory, OSU lost four consecutive games to end the season.Maryland is set to face Penn State in the semifinals of the Big Ten Tournament on Friday at 1 p.m. at Phyllis Ocker Field in Ann Arbor, Mich.
Spiralling NHS negligence bills are set to double in less than five years, and could get even worse amid lengthening hospital waiting times, watchdogs have warned.The National Audit Office (NAO) said soaring numbers of claims, especially the most costly ones caused by maternity blunders, are fuelling record compensation spending.Its report shows the number of claims has doubled in a decade, and has now reached more than 10,000 cases a year. Over the same period, legal costs have soared, amid the rise in “no-win no-fee” agreements.The figures show that claimants legal costs have risen by 533 per cent, outstripping a 316 per cent rise in damages.The watchdog also criticised the length of time spent disputing cases, adding to costs. It now takes 426 days for the average claim to be settled, the report says – a rise from 300 days six years ago, with every extra day adding £40 to costs.It also highlighted a sharp rise in spending on maternity blunders which left babies brain-damaged – with a 350 per cent rise in damages over the last decade.The NAO said lengthening NHS waiting times could increase the risks of future claims, from patients whose diagnosis or treatment is delayed. Waiting lists are now the highest they have been for a decade, with a 76 per cent rise in the numbers waiting more than 18 weeks for treatment over the last two years.

Meg Hillier said: “The costs of clinical negligence claims are spiralling at a time of immense financial pressures on our National Health Service, taking scarce resources away from frontline services and patients.” “The Department of Health and Ministry of Justice have been too slow to work together to turn the tide, with actions to save £90 million a year by 2020-21 a drop in the ocean in the face of forecast costs of £3.2 billion a year by 2021. We need Government to take a good hard look at the financial and personal costs of clinical negligence.” The Government has drawn up plans which attempt to limit NHS legal costs, including fixed legal costs for cases worth £25,000. But the NAO said the proposals would only save £90m, which the chairman of the Committee of Public Accounts, described as a “drop in the ocean” compared with the £3.2bn annual bill forecast for 2021.

Hot on the heels of Lenovo’s 2011 ThinkPad update, HP has announced their own new models. The EliteBooks and ProBooks were both covered, meaning new systems for the enterprise-level p-series, the mainstream business b-series, and SMB-focused s-series. Ten models were announced in total.The big news is a new design language that HP is calling FORGE (Form Optimized Richness Green Endurance). The EliteBook, being the flagship line, was the most affected. These systems look more attractive and less business-like thanks to recessed I/O slots, cleaner bottoms with hidden labels, tiny pin-like precision LED indicators, larger trackpads, and a new barrel hinge design. On the functional side, the new EliteBooks received larger drainage channels, filtered intake vents to keep gunk out, and a bottom panel that can be opened tool-lessly. There is also a rubber frame around the display to add a layer of protection when the computer is shut.AdChoices广告Overall FORGE makes for a notebook that is a lot like the previous EliteBook but with a more distinctive design. HP isn’t taking any major chance here, but the p-series computers definitely don’t look like the competition. The squared-off design didn’t do much to slim down the p-series and the new computers are actually a bit heavier than the old ones, but there are still a lot of nice changes.The b- and s-series computers got more metal on their exteriors and some other minor upgrades. Most of the cool stuff was trickled down from the line above it (p to b and b to s) so you’ll recognize these features.The new EliteBooks are the 14-inch 8460p and the 14.5-inch 8560p. These will run second-gen Intel Core i3/i5/i7 processors, have 3G/4G support, and either use Intel HD or AMD Radeon HD 6470M graphics. Aside from the design stuff the coolest new perk seems to be HP’s ProtectTools which now has facial recognition and can look for a paired Bluetooth cell phone as a secondary security token.Battery life was bumped up seriously as well–HP says the 8460p running an SSD with a 9-cell battery and an additional slice battery will run for 32 hours! Under what we would call real-life use they say it will beat 20 hours.The ProBook b-series will arrive in the form of the all-new 13-inch 6360b, and then the 14-inch 6460b and 15.6-inch 6560b. These are the mainstream business computers and as such won’t offer a quad-core option. They did get more metal on the outside, an optional HD webcam, and a tougher chassis with more magnesium built-in.The s-series, meant for small businesses with unmanaged IT, picks up the new 4230s, 4330s, 4430s, 4530s and 4730s ranging from 13.3- up to 17.3-inches. These systems get Core i3/i5/i7 processors (with a quad-core option), switchable graphics on some, SRS sound, HP ProtectTools, anodized aluminum around the display and on the palm rest, and a larger trackpad that supports gestures.The EliteBooks will start at $999, ProBook b-series will start at $799, and the ProBook s-series will start at $579. Everything will be available March 15th.HP ProBook s-series_right metallic grayHP ProBook s-series_right metallic grayHP ProBook s-series_left metallic grayHP ProBook s-series_front metallic grayHP ProBook s-series_down facing metallic grayHP ProBook s-series_closed metallic grayHP ProBook b-series_right tentHP ProBook b-series_front right view with dockHP ProBook b-series_front openHP ProBook b-series_angle rearHP EliteBook p-series_right tentHP EliteBook p-series_front right view with dockHP EliteBook p-series_angle rear
We’ve seen rumors. We’ve heard stories. We’ve gained features and lost features. It has been, from my experience, the second most hyped device on Verizon Wireless and the most hyped Android phone since the Nexus One. The first of Verizon’s 4G lineup is finally here to answer some questions: the HTC Thunderbolt 4G.It’s the third of HTC‘s 4.3-inch slabs of 4G awesomeness with a kickstand. Not unlike the HTC Evo 4G in concept, but different in nearly every other way, the Thunderbolt combines some great hardware with one of the most comfortable feeling devices I have had the pleasure to experience. The design is not unlike a large Nexus One with its soft touch plastic coating all over, though clearly a bit wider and a bit heavier. Opening the kickstand reveals a large speaker capable of some nice sounds, and a nice vibrant screen helps wrap it up nicely. We’ve known about all of those things for awhile, what could possibly be new?AdChoices广告The Thunderbolt will have 8GB of onboard storage and also comes with a 32GB microSD card that is described in the press release as “Actual formatted capacity will be less”. I suspect 16 GB, but no clear definition or reason was given. Skype Video is not included in the press release, which goes along with what we have seen so far from the device rumors, and it’s packing a 1.3 megapixel front and 8 megapixel back camera for when it does come out. It’s running the latest of the Snapdragon line, clocked at 1GHz, though don’t let that spec alone fool you, this monster is plenty fast.Pricing was another significant issue we were patiently waiting on. We’d seen USB stick pricing and tablet pricing for 4G, but what will it cost to put 4G on your phone? Verizon has released a brief statement addressing the current 4G plans. It states that you will be required to have a Verizon Wireless Nationwide Talk plan and a 4G LTE data package. So that’s going be at least $39.99 for the voice plan and $29.99 for the data plan.Along with this, the Mobile Hotspot service will be free for all Thunderbolt owners until May 15, after which a $20/month add-on will be available to anyone who would like the ability to connect up to 8 devices on the first LTE network.Having been one of the few to get real hands on time with this device at CES, I can tell you that the Thunderbolt was worth the wait. It’s a solid phone that is more than comfortable to hold and delivers any multimedia very well. Plus, it’s an HTC phone, so there is no doubt that it’s only a matter of time before the geeks over at the XDA Developers forum have rooted it and overclocked it to sound like a Ferarri or something.The Thunderbolt has gotten a lot of negative press largely due to poor rumors and idle speculation. Give it a fair shake, and go try one out on March 17.
Microsoft kicked off this year’s E3 keynotes this morning, and although they didn’t drop so much as a hint about their next console, they announced a number of new titles and future enhancements to the Xbox 360. Here is our lighting-quick, TL;DR version of the lengthy press conference…Most notable among the game reveals were new entries into the Halo and Gears of War franchises, both synonymous with the 360 platform, as well as Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Forza Horizon, and Ascend: New Gods.Microsoft continued to push hard on their Kinect peripheral during the keynote, both as a motion control solution and a voice input device. Improved Bing voice search is coming to 12 different countries in 6 languages later this year, and will let users search movies and television episodes by genre across all the installed media apps. Voice control will also be a part of Madden 13, where players call audibles, choose plays, hike the ball, and call out individual players, as well as FIFA 13, for making substitutions and formation changes.The company also announced Xbox SmartGlass, a technology for connecting smartphones and tablets to the console for a variety of purposes — drawing plays in Madden, viewing stats and waypoints in Halo, and viewing extra information on a Game of Thrones episode, for example. Fortunately, the SmartGlass functionality won’t be limited to Microsoft platforms, as the company plans to support iOS and Android devices as well.The company showed off various ways that a connected touchscreen device could be used for game interaction, juggling video between the big and small screens, and navigating around Internet Explorer 10 — that’s right, Microsoft’s browser is coming to the 360.As rumored, the press conference also included the debut of the Xbox Music service on Microsoft’s console, which will also be coming to Windows 8 and Windows Phones. Though Microsoft had no new hardware to show off this time around, Xbox SmartGlass is a pretty intriguing answer to the 2-screen tech Nintendo talked about in their pre-E3 video last night.

(WSVN) – A South Florida girl is speaking out about her road to recovery after suffering from a stroke.Lynn-Sah Joseph was just 11 years old when a health scare changed her life.The fifth-grader was rushed to the hospital after having suffered a stroke that left her paralyzed on the left side.Joseph has since made a complete recovery, thanks to the doctors and nurses at Broward Health Medical Center.The survivor is now urging others to learn about the importance of early stroke detection, as well as to be aware that it can happen at any age.“I always heard people could have a stroke, but not at the age like I am right now,” said Joseph. “I thought it could happen to people in their older 30s, like starting teens, but I just didn’t want to believe it. But, well, it happened.”Strokes are one of the top 10 causes of death in children, according to the American Stroke Association.
Dan Cohen AUTHOR DOD may be missing opportunities to reduce its leased space because the department has not considered the impact of force reductions on existing leased facilities, according to a new report by the Government Accountability Office (GAO).The agency found six Army leases for administrative space within 50 miles of installations slated for reductions in force structure. The annual cost of the leases totals about $4.1 million for 249,000 square feet.“It is important that DOD plan ahead when it anticipates force reductions, in order to properly assess its future infrastructure requirements,” GAO stated.Army officials told the agency it would take two years to conduct an assessment to determine whether DOD-owned property, other federal property or a leased facility is the best solution to meet a DOD organization’s space requirements.In its comments to the report, DOD noted that a new Army execution order requires commanders to plan and implement footprint reductions and emphasizes the need to move Army activities out of leased space.The congressional watchdog agency found that officials do not share information on underutilized space that potentially could be used when there is a new lease requirement. It previously reported that officials at the DOD, service and installation levels do not conduct outreach regarding the availability of underutilized space on installations because it would be an administrative burden, especially if there is not a significant amount of surplus space.DOD officials cited a number of factors that must be considered before deciding to move an activity from leased space onto an installation, including the condition of the underutilized space, whether the installation’s infrastructure could accommodate additional personnel and whether a new activity would interfere with the installation’s mission.While those factors need to be evaluated when making a decision to vacate leased space, GAO concluded that some opportunities to reduce reliance on leased space may exist given the possibility that force structure reductions will occur in the future.DOD did not concur with GAO’s recommendation that the military departments look for opportunities to relocate DOD organizations in leased space onto installations with underutilized space, however, as existing policy already requires the efficient use of real estate. The department also pointed to recent initiatives by the services to reduce their reliance on leased space.

Game Saturday: Stellar Squad (online, Flash, strategy) by Martin Brinkmann on January 27, 2018 in Games – 5 commentsStellar Squad is a free online strategy game in which you command a squad of futuristic soldiers and fight off wave after wave of robot attacks.The game plays similarly to Tower Defense games but with the difference that the positions of your soldiers are set.Stellar SquadStellar Squad is a tactical game that features squad-based combat, different unit types, upgrades, and an army of robots of all shapes and sizes.Combat works automatically but you get control over certain things while it plays out. A click on an enemy robot focuses fire on it for example but your unit acts on its own for the most part.You earn energy when you defeat robot squads and may spend it to upgrade a unit member during the battle. All start out as basic soldiers but can be promoted to space marines, heavy gunners, forcers or medics to name a few of the available classes.Each class has distinct abilities. The medic sends out drones to heal squad members, the heavy packs a punch and the forcer shoots with a railgun.But there is more that you can do. Each class brings along with it a special attack. The heavy fires a stun grenade, the space marine commands a rocket strike, and the medic may put a protective shield around each squad member for some time.These specials have cooldowns and it is up to you to make the most out of them.Your last option is to add defensive shields or attack power ups to individual squad members. Defensive shields protect against direct attacks, power ups increase the damage output.You earn money when you play maps in the game and may use the money to upgrade individual classes or the squad itself. Upgrades to the Marine, for example, improve the rocket barrage or increase the damage of the marine’s weapons.While you could spend all money on squad or unit upgrades, you may also spend some on relics. You discover relics during battles and they are added automatically to free relic slots. These improve certain characteristics or things automatically, for example, a 5% attack increase or replacement soldiers for fallen ones. Relic upgrades improve these further.You control the game on a strategic map. The game features three regular acts and a bonus act, each with a set of missions that you play through to advance the game further. Once you beat a mission on normal, you unlock the challenge and when you complete it, you get to play the wave again but this time in hard mode.BattlesBattles play out in real-time automatically but you control unit upgrades, focus fire, and the use of special weapons and specials. A hit on the space-key pauses the battle. This is probably the most important thing you do during battles as they can get quite hectic.You start with a certain number of hearts in each battle and lose hearts when robots manage to enter the ship. The battle is over when you lose all hearts or defeat all enemy robots that advance on your position.You do earn some money when you lose a battle but not nearly as much as when you win it. Still, you may spend the money on upgrades and try again. There is no limit on tries but the money that you earn from battles is reduced after you win a mission for the first time.Closing WordsStellar Squad is a good looking squad-based strategy game that plays in all modern browsers that support Adobe Flash.

April 6, 2011 – At the American College of Cardiology’s 60th Annual Scientific Session, Siemens Healthcare demonstrated solution for sustainable cardiovascular care.Healthcare providers in the United States are bracing for changes that will increase their accountability through incentives tied to improvements in quality and the overall value of care. With a comprehensive portfolio of solutions from in vitro diagnostics to imaging modalities to information technology (IT), the company is positioned to help providers deliver consistent, high-quality and cost-effective care.“At the ACC we are demonstrating that our approach is helping cardiovascular professionals prepare to not only meet the challenges ahead but to excel in an environment that will place paramount importance on driving down the cost of care while maximizing quality outcomes,” said Claus Grill, vice president, angiographic, cardiac and X-ray systems, Siemens Healthcare. “Siemens has a longstanding commitment to both innovation and technological integration and our solutions are enabling sounder decisions, safer procedures, stronger operations and smarter investments.”The company is helping cardiovascular professionals to optimize clinical decision making, employ safer, and in many cases, less invasive procedures, improve operational efficiency, and do more with the investments made in healthcare technology and IT. Ultimately this helps to make the delivery of cardiovascular care more sustainable.Healthcare providers using the company’s technology can make more informed decisions with superb image quality and integrated informatics. They can also accelerate decision making with knowledge-based workflow protocols.With high-quality biomarkers, providers can also better direct treatment protocols by diagnosing cardiovascular disease earlier. The X-ray based imaging technologies employ award-winning CARE (Combined Applications to Reduce Exposure) software, which helps providers achieve high quality images at low radiation dose levels. The company’s products also support minimally invasive surgical techniques while improving diagnostic confidence, and integration across health IT systems for physician reporting helps increase the speed to diagnosis.When working in unison, these solutions help cardiovascular professionals focus on high-quality patient care, so they can put a greater emphasis on meeting evolving national benchmarks for safety and quality. The end result is a consistent, high-quality and cost-effective approach to dealing with more demanding workloads and more difficult clinical scenarios.For more information: www.siemens.com/healthcare FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 The CT scanner might not come with protocols that are adequate for each hospital situation, so at Phoenix Children’s Hospital they designed their own protocols, said Dianna Bardo, M.D., director of body MR and co-director of the 3D Innovation Lab at Phoenix Children’s.

A worker prepares for the Art of Banksy exhibit at 213 Sterling Road in Toronto on Monday, June 11, 2018. THE CANADIAN PRESS/ Tijana Martin. by Cassandra Szklarski, The Canadian Press Posted Jun 12, 2018 11:31 am PDT Last Updated Jun 12, 2018 at 12:20 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – The largest collection of art by the mysterious street artist Banksy gets a splashy North American premiere this week with an unauthorized look at his rise from underground subversive to hip media darling.Curator and former manager Steve Lazarides says he expects “The Art of Banksy” to attract Banksy fans from all walks of life, even the societal elite that the urban artist is wont to target with his politically charged stencils.“It’s weird, the establishment seem to love it,” Lazarides says of the artist’s unabashed mission to provoke with colourful, often humorous, images.“He’s always had that kind of broad church of supporters anyway, from the very beginning. It was a very wide spread of people, it wasn’t just graphic designers in backpacks that were liking his work in the beginning.”There will be a wide array of pieces to take in, he adds, pointing to sculpture, screen prints, canvases and multimedia pieces that have been installed in a sprawling former factory space west of the downtown core.All were created for display or sale, he adds, expressing a “pathological hatred” for collectors who remove Banksy’s street pieces for private buyers.Nevertheless, he admits that Banksy hasn’t endorsed the exhibit, but he believes that’s allowed for an objective overview of his former pal’s oeuvre.“To be honest this isn’t a Banksy exhibition, it is an exhibition of Banksy’s art and I think there’s a big difference between the two,” says Lazarides, who says he hasn’t spoken to the artist in a decade.Several works come from Banksy’s “Barely Legal” show in Los Angeles in 2006, and a retrospective held in Bristol, England in 2008.Other pieces are on loan from private collectors, including three from a former Toronto resident who now lives in Hong Kong, says Michel Boersma, Live Nation’s senior vice president of family entertainment & theatre.That collector shared two versions of Banksy’s famed “Balloon Girl,” in which a young girl is seen letting go of a red heart-shaped balloon, he says.Boersma is looking forward to showing the 7.5-metre tall “Forgive Us Our Trespassing,” which he says hasn’t been seen in a decade. Another highlight is a stencil on a garage door shutter, which he says is the only piece of street art Banksy has acknowledged because it was done on a friend’s garage as a gift.After taking the tour to Melbourne, Amsterdam, Tel Aviv and Auckland, Boersma considers Toronto a great place to launch a possible North American leg.“For me, it was a more interesting start than just go straight to a ‘New York.’ And I think it’s the right decision that we all took because the location is great … we have this beautiful old industrial venue where we’re now building a museum in,” says Boersma, whose company teamed with Starvox Exhibits for the tour.In addition to being the largest collection so far, he says the Toronto show adds videos and an audio guide, in which Lazarides shares stories about specific pieces.The duo met in 1997 when Lazarides was hired to take Banksy’s photograph. Both from Bristol and sharing mutual friends, they became fast friends with Lazarides soon accompanying Banksy to document his graffiti escapades. Eventually, he would help Banksy sell prints from the trunk of his car, and then launch a gallery show to fund more illicit exploits.One such outing produced a large image of a Queen’s guard on a West London wall, which Lazarides recalls Banksy painting in broad daylight.“There’s a whole crew of people (involved) so sometimes we’d close off a road, we’d park something in the way, there’s all sorts of different techniques employed over the years,” Lazarides says of how Banksy pulled off the stunt.“He always was bold as brass when he put his pieces up and got caught very, very few times. I think people (would) walk past and think it was somebody else’s problem. If it’s happening in the middle of the day I think people think it’s allowed to happen.”And although many of the images have been shared on social media, Lazarides insists that seeing them in person is different: “There’s a reason people queue up at the Louvre to see a picture of the Mona Lisa even though they can get a postcard of it in their local shop. Pictures have power.”The work is fun, pointed and tailor-made for a general audience, he adds.“They don’t feel like they need an art degree to understand. This was art that was made for them, by one of them,” says Lazarides.“It’s a fairly simplistic, political message that everybody can get, and I think it provokes conversation and now in the age of social media, things get spread around so quickly that that’s what’s made him a global star.”As for Banksy’s identity, Lazarides doesn’t expect him to ever reveal it. Even if he went public, he doubts anyone would believe him.“I said to him years ago that he should out himself because no one would believe it,” he says. “I think people are expecting, like, Brad Pitt on a white horse coming through and taking on ISIS single-handedly (but) Banksy’s just a regular Joe.”“The Art of Banksy” runs Wednesday to July 11. Banksy exhibit caters to broad following: ‘Art that was made for them, by one of them’
The Larnaca criminal court on Wednesday jailed a 37-year-old man for three years after he was found guilty of blackmailing and spreading nude photographs of a 33-year-old Larnaca resident.The case took place between August and September 2017, when the defendant, through a fake profile on Facebook, promised to pay for nude photographs of a 33-year-old woman, who had told him she was in desperate need of moneyInstead of giving her the promised amounts, the defendant demanded €600, blackmailing her that if she did not hand over the amount, he would make public the nude photographs and would notify her family and village, damaging her reputation.In its ruling during the closed-door hearing on Wednesday, the criminal court said that the 37-year-old also sent a threatening message to the woman’s brother, claiming that he would send the photographs to his co-workers, his in-laws, and to the residents of his village.Finally, after a month of threatening messages, the 37-year-old sent the photographs of the 33-year-old to her brother, her brother’s wife, and to one friend of hers.Following the leak, the 33-year-old filed a complaint with the police.According to the court’s ruling, “the defendant did not use physical violence, nor did he threaten the use of violence against the complainant, which was taken into account as a mitigating factor in the imposition of the penalty.”However, the court continued, the psychological violence that was caused for an entire month, created a state of terror for the complainant and could not be ignored.“The widespread use of the internet and social media by unsuspecting people creates potential victims of such criminal behaviour,” the court said. “The deterrence and severe punishment of such criminal behaviour should therefore be imperative.” You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoSub Compact SUVs | Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.

This is the confidence of people in us This win is not making us arrogant" Kumaraswamy said Follow LIVE UPDATES on Karnataka by election results 2018 here Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) president Dinesh Gundu Rao has described the success in the by-elections as the success of coalition government "The by-elections were considered as important for the coalition government We have contested the by-elections in association with coalition partner BJP has struggled a lot to win in Shivamogga Our candidates have got elected from four constituencies — two Assembly seats and two Lok Sabha seats" says Dinesh Gundu Rao Karnataka is the only south Indian state where the BJP has been in power The by-elections for three Lok Sabha seats were necessitated after Yeddyurappa and Sriramulu of the BJP and C S Puttaraju of the JD(S) vacated Shivamogga Ballari and Mandya following their election to the assembly in May Bypolls to Jamkhandi seat was necessitated following the death of

together broke into celebrations across the party’s offices in Ramanagara and Jamkhandi district as well as in Bengaluru Around 66 percent of the 545 lakh electorate voted in the five bypolls on Saturday With inputs from agencies In a major setback to the Congress party the Supreme Court on Thursday dismissed the petition filed by Congress leader KK Mishra related to the infamous dumper scam against Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan as ‘withdrawn’ The apex court also observed orally that election should be fought outside the court and not in the courtroomFile photo of Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan PTI “The Supreme Court today dismissed the petition filed by KK Mishra as withdrawn The Madhya Pradesh High Court on 29 January had dismissed the review petition on theground that sanction from competent authority wasn’t obtained by the petitioner as it was against the CM (Shivraj Singh Chouhan) who’s a public servant The HC had also observed that a similar complaint was discussed earlier and after three years the petitioner (KK Mishra) again brought it Therefore the SC today didn’t want to intervene with the HC order” advocate Vanshaja Shukla who appeared before the Supreme Court along with senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi told Firstpost Rohatgi and Shukla represented Chouhan on Thursday during the hearing before the Supreme Court bench comprising Justices AK Sikri and Ashok Bhushan “Justice Sikri observed orally to senior Congress leader and senior advocate Kapil Sibal that election is round the corner and they (Congress party) should fight election outside the court and not in the courtroom It was not recorded but was in response to senior advocate Mukul Rohtagi’s plea that the said case is politically motivated” said advocate Shukla The alleged dumper scam against Chouhan is one of the major issues like the Vyapam scam that the Opposition Congress has been using as a weapon to attack the BJP government in Madhya Pradesh alleging corruption The dumper scam Bhopal-based Congress leader and a lawyer by profession Mishra had alleged that Chouhan after becoming the chief minister of Madhya Pradesh in November 2005 doled out favours to an industrial group — Jaypee Associates in Rewa He had moved court alleging that thechief minister misused his official position and rented out dumper trucks to the said group as quid pro quo for allocation of out-of-the-turn mining leases The complainant had also alleged that four dumpers worth Rs 2 crore were registered in the name of Chouhan’s wife Sadhna Singh An FIR was registered against Chouhan his wife an IAS officer and others in November 2007 regarding thepurchase of dumpers The Lokayukta had investigated the case and found that no offence was committed A closure report was filed by the Lokayukta police In January this year the Madhya Pradesh High Court dismissed a review petition filed by Mishra challenging Bhopal district court’s judgment (28 October 2017) that had dismissed his previous petition seeking reinvestigation into the alleged dumper scam The ground of dismissal of review petition was the absence of sanction in the case A sanction is required from a competent authority for theprosecution against a person holding public office (or a public servant) In the case of the chief minister the competent authority is the governor The alleged dumper scam snowballed into a major controversy in the state and Assembly proceedings were disrupted for days when the issue became public Congress’ stand The Opposition Congress in Madhya Pradesh that pursued the case for almost a decade is up in arms against Shivraj Singh government and wants to use it as a ‘major case of corruption’ during its upcoming Assembly election campaign Senior Congress leader and senior advocates Sibal Vivek Tankha and others represented Mishra at the Supreme Court “SC wasn’t inclined to hear the petition as the apex court sought a sanction from thecompetent authority in this case As the petition is against Madhya Pradesh chief minister a sanction is needed This only means more delay as they (Madhya Pradesh chief minister and others) have gained two months and by thentheAssembly election will take place But we’ll continue with our fight against this scam” senior advocate and Rajya Sabha member from Congress Tankha told Firstpost “I’m told that our senior leader Kapil Sibalji who’s also a senior advocate and representing this case along with Vivek Tankhaji and others withdrew the case on technical grounds It has not been rejected After discussion with our lawyers and leaders we may file a fresh petition afresh” said Mishra and doctors told her she was unlikely to ever walk again. most OSCE countries are failing to
