CPL 2020 : Kolkata Knight Riders hero Sunil Narine is also…

first_imgCaribbean Premier LeagueCPL 2020Indian premier leagueIndian premier league 2020Latest Sports News WTC Final Live- Ind vs NZ: Kyle Jamieson bags 5th five-wicket haul in 8th Test, rattles India in WTC final KKR’s Sunil Narine is impressing all by his astonishing form in the first week of Caribbean Premier League (CPL 2020). After his brilliant all round show in the opening game for Sharukh Khan’s Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR), Narine slammed his second consecutive half century. Riding on the scintillating batting by Narine, TKR easily defeated Jamaica Tallawahs to register 2nd victory in CPL 2020.  2020 HERO CARIBBEAN PREMIER LEAGUE – MATCH REPORT 6Trinbago Knight Riders 136/3 (Narine 53, Munro 49*, DM Bravo 14; Mujeeb 1/13, Edwards 1/19, Lamichhane 1/30) beat Jamaica Tallawahs 135/8 (Phillips 58, Russell 25, Asif 22; Seales 2/21, Ali Khan 2/25, Fawad 1/18, Narine 1/19) by 7 wicketsA fine all-round bowling display saw Trinbago Knight Riders win the battle of the unbeaten teams and go to the top of the Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) table. Glenn Phillips was the only standout for the Jamaica Tallawahs as the power-hitters struggled for fluency, and Sunil Narine’s second consecutive 50 did the bulk of the work even as the Knight Riders took their time about the chase.Ali Khan and Jayden Seales started superbly after Knight Riders captain Kieron Pollard put the Tallawahs in. Walton spliced Ali Khan to square leg and Kirton was trapped in front by Seales – remarkably, this was the first LBW of Hero CPL 2020.

Asif Ali coming to the crease in the third over cannot have been part of the Tallawahs’ Plan A.A mini-recovery ensued as Phillips took Seales for a pair of boundaries, and Asif welcomed Khary Pierre to Hero CPL 2020 with an enormous straight six. Narine bamboozled Asif five balls straight but found himself hammered into the stands for a magnificent Powerplay-closing Hero Maximum.Narine had his revenge, bowling Asif with a deceptive quicker ball. The Tallawahs crawled to 63/4 at halfway, and it got worse when a Fawad googly completely deceived Brathwaite. The leg-spinner’s first two overs tonight contained a remarkable 11 dot balls.Phillips broke the spell off Fawad to come out of his post-Powerplay slump and reach 50 off 34 balls. The Tallawahs were careful to see off Narine, but at 90/5 with six overs to come, the acceleration had to come at some point, and once Phillips fell trying to whip Seales over deep square leg the onus was all on Russell.Ali Khan delivered a near-perfect over, closing by nearly holding a spectacular return catch off a ferocious drive from Ramaal Lewis, who came into the Tallawahs XI for Veerasammy Permaul. In truth the American was lucky to escape with his teeth intact.Thanks to a fine diving catch at mid-off from Colin Munro, a restless Russell fell having faced a good number of deliveries for under a run a ball for the second game running. Remarkably, he hasn’t yet hit a six in this year’s Hero CPL.The final over saw Fidel Edwards, into the team for Oshane Thomas for his first Hero CPL game since 2015, run out as he sacrificed himself to save Lewis, but the all-rounder couldn’t manage a boundary. Ali Khan and Dwayne Bravo’s death bowling was outstanding, and the Tallawahs total felt sub-par.Edwards and Mujeeb-ur-Rahman troubled the top order, with Lendl Simmons losing his shape off the paceman and gifting a catch to mid-off. After 4 overs the Tallawahs had Trinbago nerves jangling, but Narine’s eyes lit up when inexperienced off-spinner Lewis came into the attack. 14 runs came off the over, Munro and Narine both drove Russell for four through cover, and 38/1 off the Powerplay meant things were much calmer in the Knight Riders dugout.Narine has built his reputation as a hitter of spin, but he was severe on the pace of Russell, with the highlight an impudent inside-out four on one leg. He brought up a 35-ball 50 off the last ball of the 10th over, at which point the Knight Riders needed just 71 off 60 with nine wickets in hand.Munro’s was a curious innings – he managed just 16 off his first 24 balls, but 14 of them were boundaries, and it wasn’t until the 17th over that he breached a run a ball. This all-or-nothing approach was a feature of the chase, and the Knight Riders will want to address their high dot-ball percentage as they move through the tournament.Mujeeb was excellent, and deserves huge credit for holding a skied return catch off Darren Bravo despite keeper Phillips nearly taking him out with a full-length dive. But Narine’s belligerence and Munro’s anchor role meant that, although the Tallawahs will rue a few missed opportunities, the Knight Riders always had the chase firmly under control.This sense of ease was underlined when Pollard had time to block out an Edwards over in an ultimately vain attempt to steer Munro to 50, and the Knight Riders go into the weekend sitting pretty atop the standings.

Having a Baby? 7 Questions to Ask Before Choosing a Hospital

first_img Reply I’m having a cow!!!!! Should I call Central Fla. Zoo?????? or Florida Hospital???? LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply But how do you know what questions to ask? Below, Michael Cacciatore, MD, obstetrician at Florida Hospital, suggests the following as a good starting point.Does the hospital offer education classes to prepare for our baby’s birth?“Parent education classes are designed to give you and your family the skills and knowledge you need to embark on this new phase of your life with confidence,” says Dr. Cacciatore. “Even if this isn’t your first baby, you may find that there are new techniques and tips available for parents since your previous birth experience.”Parenting education classes at Florida Hospital address topics such as childbirth, breastfeeding, safe-sitters, bringing baby home, ways to soothe your baby, infant/pediatric CPR, and even safe practices for introducing the family pet to a new baby.Does the hospital provide care for high-risk pregnancies or babies, like preemies, who need extra care after birth?If your pregnancy is high-risk, you want to be sure your hospital has experience with cases like yours. Factors for a high-risk pregnancy include maternal age under 17 or over 35, preexisting medical conditions like high blood pressure or heart problems, and medical conditions that occur during pregnancy such as preeclampsia or gestational diabetes.Preemies – babies delivered before the 37th week of pregnancy – are prone to complications such as respiratory distress syndrome and infections, and require specialized care by trained neonatologist and a high-level Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).“No one likes to anticipate problems during labor and delivery, but depth of expertise and advanced technology can make a crucial difference when unforeseen emergencies arise,” Dr. Cacciatore says.Is there an obstetrician, anesthesiologist and neonatologist available at all times?If you’re in labor for a while, what happens if your obstetrician gets called to another case? What if an emergency arises with you or your baby and you need surgery or the baby needs medical intervention? Your hospital should have an obstetrician, anesthesiologist and neonatologist on-site at all times to address any of these situations.According to Dr. Cacciatore, Florida Hospital is instituting an obstetric hospitalist program that provides an obstetrician at the hospital 24/7. So, even if your doctor is called away, you will still have trained obstetricians available to take over your labor and delivery.

Is a pediatrician available in the hospital?Even if you’ve selected a pediatrician for your baby, it’s ideal that one is available at all times during your hospital stay. These doctors, known as pediatric hospitalists, work with your regular pediatrician and other physicians and providers involved in your child’s care.If your baby is born full-term and healthy, but develops a health issue, the pediatric hospitalist will update your pediatrician and be part of your child’s care team. When your baby leaves the hospital, the pediatric hospitalist will give your pediatrician a detailed overview of your child’s hospital stay and thorough instructions for any necessary continuing care.Does the hospital offer support for moms who want natural births or VBAC?You want your hospital to be on the same page with you when it comes to your desire for a natural birth or a vaginal birth after Caesarean (VBAC).“If your obstetrician determines you’re a good candidate to attempt VBAC, then you want a hospital that can accommodate VBAC,” Dr. Cacciatore explains. “Some hospitals may not offer VBAC because they don’t have the staff or resources to handle an emergency C-section. An obstetrician must be on-site during the entire labor in case a C-section must be done, and an operating room and anesthesiologist must be available.”Is breastfeeding support available? While natural, convenient and best for baby, breastfeeding can be tricky, so the more support and guidance new mothers have, the more likely it is that breastfeeding will be successful. Breastfeeding support should include lactation consultants, and on-site lactation services, such as private consultations, breast pump sales and rentals.“Lactation consultants help new moms learn the basics of breastfeeding and address any issues to ensure they can successfully breastfeed their babies,” says Dr. Cacciatore.How involved can family members be?“This is a good question to ask both your prospective hospital and yourself! You need to address your own preferences regarding family members in the birthing room and find out how many of them you can have in the room,” Dr. Cacciatore advises. “We encourage family members to be there if that’s what the parents wish. Some don’t want other family members in the room so those wishes will be respected as well.”You also should ask what’s the hospital’s policy on having someone with you in the operating room if you’re having a scheduled C-section. Florida Hospital policy allows one support person in the operating room as long as the delivering mother is not under general anesthetic.

I like what you specifically said about asking how involved the family can be, specifically how many people can be in the room. I know with our family we have a few people that would want to be involved during labor and would like to know ahead of time if they are going to be in the room. Thanks for the information.

Friday and Weekend Rains Help those who Received Them

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Friday and Weekend Rains Help those who Received Them Friday and Weekend Rains Help those who Received Them By Andy Eubank – Jul 2, 2012 SHARE Previous articleJohn Hussey update for July 2ndNext articleSeed Consultants Market Update 7/3/12 11:08AM ET with Gary Wilhelmi Andy Eubank Some Indiana farmers received the weekend rains and some didn’t. But for those who did, was the rain enough to make an impact? In a HAT Field Update John Hussey in central Indiana’s Tipton County says Friday and weekend rains totaling 1 ½ inches have given his crops a different look this week.“That was the first rain we had in the month of June. We had gotten some little sprinkles periodically, but that was the first rain we had since the last day of May when we got 6 or 7 tenths. Then Friday was the first time we got any amount of measurable rain at all. So conditions were getting very critical. The soybeans looked very bad. The corn was still looking fairly good but it was starting to show stress signs very heavily.”Hussy said the inch and a half wasn’t a lifesaver but it gives the crops a few extra days of breathing room. And he credits new genetics for the crops’ ability to handle stressful conditions better than in 1988, another year of drought. Hussey also recalls a difficult year in the mid-90’s in the full HAT Field Update.For now though spider mites are a problem in fields near him, although “we have not sprayed anything for spider mites or any kind of insects at all. We have not sprayed any fungicides yet, but we are going to look real closely next week for fungus because of the rain that we got now that humidity is high. That’s going to fire up some of the fungus probably, or has a good opportunity to.”Hussey reports just a few miles to the north there is heavy spraying for spider mites.[audio:|titles=Weekend rains help some Indiana farmers]Hear more in the HAT Field Update at the Agronomy page, sponsored by Advanced Ag Solutions.Audio Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Podcast: Play in new window | Download | EmbedSubscribe: RSS Facebook Twitter SHARE Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Florida girl, 7, dies after being struck by stray bullet sitting in car

first_imgThe Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office(JACKSONVILLE, Fla.) — Police are searching for suspects who shot and killed a 7-year-old Florida girl at a shopping plaza over the weekend.Heydi Rivas Villanueva was sitting in a vehicle with her father on Saturday evening when a stray bullet struck her in the head, killing her, police said.The shooting happened at around 6 p.m. at a Jacksonville shopping plaza, authorities said. Police said multiple shots rang out during a confrontation between “two unrelated groups,” but the circumstances of the incident weren’t immediately clear.“Gunfire erupted between the groups and a stray bullet struck Heydi in the head while she was in the vehicle and she later died in the hospital,” Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams said during a press conference Sunday.The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office released photos and surveillance video in connection with the case on Sunday, showing the faces of two potential suspects and two vehicles of interest.The two male suspects fled the scene in an early- to mid-2000s green Nissan Altima, the office said. Details about the make and model of the second vehicle were unknown and there was no way to determine the number of occupants, police said.“Vehicles in the photos attached are being sought due to being in the parking lot at the time of the shooting,” First Coast Crime Stoppers said in a statement Sunday. “The bright blue vehicle we believe was involved in a traffic crash with one of the vehicles. We are trying to make contact with the driver of the vehicle.”Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry called the shooting “heartbreaking” in a statement on Twitter Saturday.“My Lord. My God. This is heartbreaking. These are our children,” Curry said. “Our cops are in pursuit of these terrible people. Prayers for the family. Our law enforcement will bring the full force of the law on those who committed this.”Authorities are offering $11,000 for information leading to an arrest. Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

St. Louis police officer charged with killing fellow cop in Russian roulette-style shooting

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(ST. LOUIS) — A St. Louis police officer has been charged with killing a fellow officer after a Russian roulette-style game went horribly wrong.Nathaniel Hendren, 29, was charged Friday with involuntary manslaughter and armed criminal action, according to Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner and a probable cause statement.Hendren, who was on-duty at the time of the shooting, and Katlyn Alix were allegedly playing a game where all but one bullet was removed from a revolver and the two would take turns pointing it at each other and pulling the trigger, according to the probable cause document. The statement was provided by Sgt. Richard Hellmeier, Hendren’s partner, who was on-duty and with the two at the time of the shooting.According to Hellmeier, Hendren initially spun the cylinder and pointed the revolver away from Alix. But when he pulled the trigger, it did not fire. She took the gun and pointed it at Hendren, but again the gun did not fire. Hendren took the gun back and pointed it at Alix, pulled the trigger and shot Alix in the chest. She was rushed to the hospital by the officers, where she died of her injuries.The 24-year-old Alix was off-duty at the time of the shooting, which took place at one of the men’s apartment at about 1 a.m. on Wednesday. Hellmeier said, according to the probable cause statement, that “he advised that he told the defendant and victim that they shouldn’t be playing with guns and that they were police officers. He felt uncomfortable with them playing with guns and didn’t want to have any part of it and he started to leave. As he left the room but before leaving the apartment he heard a shot. He went back into the room and saw that the victim had been shot in the chest.”Gardner would not comment on the allegations presented in the probable cause statement, but called the shooting a “devastating incident.” “Yesterday, we lost a shining star and a dedicated public servant,” Gardner said. “From everything I hear about this bright, young woman, Katlyn represented the police department in an honorable manner, and she had a very bright future.“I have said this many times before; I will hold people accountable who violate Missouri law regardless of their profession, public status or station in life,” the statement continued. “Today, as much as it saddens my staff and me to file these charges, Katlyn and her family deserve accountability and justice.”The St. Louis Police Department had said Thursday following the shooting that Alix had been shot in an “accidental discharge” when Hendren “mishandled a firearm.”Alix is the fifth police officer to die in the U.S. in a shooting this year.

Police recruit high numbers

first_imgPolice recruit high numbersOn 1 May 2001 in Police, Personnel Today The number of police recruits who entered residential training last yearrose by 77 per cent, according to latest figures. National Police Training and the Metropolitan Police Service figures showthere were 7,009 recruits in 2000-1 compared with 3,963 the previous year. Nearly 40 per cent of the recruits entering police training colleges in2000-1 have been paid for out of the Government’s Crime Fighting Fundinitiative which was set up to reverse falling police numbers. All but one of the 43 forces in England and Wales have seen an overallincrease in the numbers sent for training, ranging from a 30 per cent rise inthe London region to a 168 per cent increase in Yorkshire and Humber. By March 31 this year nearly 2,800 new officers had been recruited over andabove the number police forces had planned to recruit during 2000-1. Colin Taylor, chief inspector for personnel at North Yorkshire Police, saidthe funding and the national advertising campaign had helped his force boostthe number of recruits to 70 last year from nine in 1999. He expects to appoint170 more this year. He said, “This is the result of additional funding from the crimefighting fund and the county council. It means we can improve our service andallocate officers to tasks we have not been able to do until now.” Home Secretary Jack Straw, visiting the Metropolitan Police training centreat Hendon, said substantial investment and the first national advertisingcampaign had delivered results. He said, “Forces are to be congratulated on their efforts to recruitmore officers. In just the first year of the operation the three-year crimefighting fund is already having a significant impact on overall police numbers.On the basis of forces’ projections police numbers should reach record numbersby March 2003.” By Ben Willmott Comments are closed.
