First class season a chance to impress selectors says Adams

(CMC) Director of cricket, Jimmy Adams, has urged players to use the upcoming first class season to stake their claim for a place at the higher level.Jimmy AdamsThe four-day season is set to bowl off on October 26 and Adams said the three-month season provided the ideal chance for youth cricketers and fringe players to grab the attention of senior selectors.“It’s an opportunity for the talented players in our game to stake a claim for a place in international matches,” said Adams, who took over from Englishman Richard Pybus in the post earlier this year.“It’s also an opportunity for us to see young players that have just come out of youth cricket and it’s another opportunity for us to showcase the depth of West Indies talent, so I am quite looking forward to the start of this four-day season.”The first class tournament will kick off the West Indies domestic season, which also includes the Regional Super50 one-day tournament next January and the Caribbean Premier League at the back end of next summer.For the fourth straight year, the season will be played under a home-and-away format which will again see 10 rounds of matches, a feature Adams said was key to player development.“This tournament is critical to our game in view of its length, since there are return matches. It provides so many opportunities for young players and for some that have been around for a long time to get a lot of matches under their belt,” said the former West Indies captain.“I think it is also good for the selectors to have an opportunity to see more of the players in different conditions, so it will throw up a lot of very, very useful information and give us a better indication about the quality of our players.“It’s a very important cog in the wheel of the development cycle, so I am looking forward to seeing how players have progressed from the end of last season.”He added: “Just the fact that they are playing consistently more games, it has been critical for a lot of our players along that development curve to be able to play as much as they can within the season.”Cricket West Indies has transformed the first class tournament into a professional franchise set-up from the old territorial format, with players on full contracts and the season extended to include home-and-away fixtures.Under the new stipulations, players can also move between franchises, and are selected out of a draft ahead of each season.This year, the season has been squeezed into three months – wrapping up January 21 – and Adams underscored the importance of player fitness to cope with the demands.“It will be a demanding season for the players and to be able to cope with the level of sustained physical and mental pressure, we will need them to be in top condition, so that they can repeat good performances and so it has to be a massive part of their preparation going into the season.”Three-time reigning champions Guyana Jaguars will open the defence of their title against Jamaica Scorpions at the Guyana National Stadium while Barbados Pride host Trinidad and Tobago Red Force at Kensington Oval and Windward Islands Volcanoes and Leeward Islands Hurricanes clash at the National Cricket Stadium in Grenada.

Watch Badminton ace Saina Nehwal shows her stylish avatar in advertisement for

first_imgSaina in Kaira’s TV commercialYouTube/Kaira IndiaWe all know her as one of the fiercest competitors on the badminton court. But Saina Nehwal proved that she can demonstrate immense elegance and style when she wants to. In a photo-shoot and advertisement for Kaira India – an ethnic fashion designer company – Saina appeared resplendent in a wide array of costumes crafted by the company.The TV commercial of Kaira also presents scenes from this very photo-shoot. The Olympic bronze medallist could be seen posing in different dresses with props such as a bouquet and camera. There is one particularly remarkable picture of her posing with a bicycle and hat, looking as classy as anyone could. Interspersed with the poses are shots of her smile which looks effervescent here.The choice of Saina as a brand ambassador is a clever one by the fashion brand. Most people are used to seeing fashion labels being promoted by actresses and models. By having a highly-successful sportsperson in their commercials, they are reaching out to a wider audience and making the case that you can carry yourself with great style and grace even while having a successful career outside showbiz.Also, Saina, in these pictures is able to convey the image of a modern woman who is both a hardy athlete and subtly stylish at the same time – one can call it the female version of beauty with brawns. What also adds to Saina’s appeal is the fact that she comes from a middle-class Jat family of Haryana. Her story is also one of aspiration, helped by hard-work leading to the realisation of dreams.All these qualities make her a unique but highly effective choice to promote the new range of ethnic wear the company is launching. In the process, we have seen that the former world no. 1 can give any model a run for her money when it comes to displaying elegance and grace.Here are the pictures for Kaira India.

Masjid issue which was also one of the poll issues which Adityanath fervently tried to cash in upon Writing for Hindustan Times Sunita Aron argues "The construction of the Ram temple will perhaps be the chief minister’s biggest challenge" This she argues is because in all his poll speeches Adityanath has promised: “Is there any force that can stop the construction of temple When they could not stop demolition of Babri mosque how can they stop this” However despite his strong conviction that the Ram temple/Babri Masjid issue is a matter of faith which doesnt require assistance from the courts he as chief minister has very little option but to look for an out-of-court settlement The BJP has tried to keep this issue on the back-burner however Adityanath’s inflammatory statements and

July when his successor Ram Nath Kovind will take over On Sunday members of Parliament organised a farewell ceremony for the outgoing president in the Central Hall The programme which startedon Friday evening wasaddressed by the Speaker of Lok Sabha Sumitra Mahajan and vice-president and chairman of Rajya Sabha Hamid Ansari Here’s a full text of the speech by the presidentat the farewell function in Parliament House "Honourable Members I would like to acknowledge my deep gratitude and appreciation to Honourable Speaker and the Honourable Chairman Rajya Sabha and Honourable Members of Parliament for organizing this farewell ceremony on the eve of my demitting office as the 13th President of the Republic of India File image of Pranab Mukherjee PTI Honourable Members if I say I am a creation of this Parliament It shaped by political outlook and persona Bear with me if I feel nostalgic and indulge myself by going back to the past On 26th January 1950 the Constitution of India came into effect In a remarkable display of idealism and courage we the people of India gave to ourselves a sovereign democratic republic to secure to all its citizens justice liberty and equality We undertook to promote amongst all citizens fraternity the dignity of the individual and the unity of the nation These ideals became the lodestars of the modern Indian state The Indian Constitution consisting of 395 Articles and 12 Schedules is not merely a legal document for administration but the Magna Carta of socio-economic transformation of the country It represents the hopes and aspirations of the billion plus Indians Sixty eight years ago after the first general election the Indian Parliament began its journey representing the sovereign will of its people Both the Houses were constituted the first President of the Republic was elected who addressed the first Joint Session of the Parliament and the Indian Parliamentary system rolled out Hon’ble Members: When I first entered the portals of this hallowed institution 48 years ago I was only 34 years old In July 1969 I came to this Parliament as a member of Rajya Sabha representing one of the six seats from the State of West Bengal My election to Rajya Sabha took place on 4th July and the first session I attended began on July 22nd 1969 Hon’ble Members since then for 37 years I served as a Member of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha Of these I served five terms as a Member of the Rajya Sabha elected for four terms from West Bengal and one term from Gujarat and two terms in the Lok Sabha My long career has been instructive and educative I entered Parliament at a time when the Rajya Sabha was full of experienced Parliamentarians and leaders of the freedom movement many of whom were brilliant speakers: MC Chagla Ajit Prasad Jain Jairamdas Daulatram Bhupesh Gupta Joachim Alva Mahavir Tyagi Raj Narain Bhai Mahavir Loknath Misra Chitta Basu and many more In fact Bhupesh Gupta was truly a legend in the Rajya Sabha Dahyabhai Patel and Maniben Patel Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel’s son and daughter represented Swatantra Party in the Parliament My years in Parliament were further enriched by the wisdom of PV Narasimha Rao oration of Atal Bihari Vajpayee cryptic one-liners of Madhu Limaye and Dr Nath Pai wit and humour of Piloo Modi poetic discourses of Hiren Mukherjee razor sharp repartee of Indrajit Gupta calming presence of Dr Manmohan Singh mature advice of LK Advani and passionate support of Sonia Gandhi on social legislations My career as a Parliamentarian was no doubt mentored by Shrimati Indira Gandhi Her steely determination clarity of thought and decisive actions made her a towering personality She never hesitated to call a spade a spade I remember after the defeat of Congress in the post-Emergency election we had gone to London in November 1978 A large number of media persons in a fairly aggressive mood were waiting to ask Shrimati Gandhi questions The first question that was flung at her was “What have been your gains from the Emergency” Looking at the journalist squarely in the eye in a level voice Indira Gandhi replied “In those 21 months we comprehensively managed to alienate all sections of Indian people” Big silence followed by loud laughter Not one question was asked after that and the media persons just melted away And I also learnt an early lesson of acknowledging my mistakes and rectifying them Self-correction in such situations is always a better option than self-justification Hon’ble Members in those days both the Houses of the Parliament used to reverberate with animated discussions and illuminative and exhaustive debates on social and financial legislations Listening to the stalwarts for hours and days in Parliament sitting in the Treasury or Opposition Benches I felt one with the soul of this living institution I understood the real value of debate discussion and dissent I realized how disruption hurts the opposition more than the government as it denies them the opportunity to raise the concerns of the people I internalised the essence of what Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru had said (and I quote): “There has always to be balancing of change and continuity The system of parliamentary democracy embodies these principles of change and continuity And it is up to those who function in this system members of the House and the numerous others who are part of this system to increase the pace of change to make it as fast as they like subject to the principle of continuity If continuity is broken we become rootless and the system of parliamentary democracy breaks down” (unquote) I experienced the joy of the enactment of pro-poor and pro-farmer legislations The recent passage of Goods and Services Tax and its launch on 1st July is a shining example of co-operative federalism and speaks volumes for the maturity of Indian Parliament To be a part of this system is a unique experience and I am grateful to the people of this great country for giving me that opportunity I had the privilege of being a witness and a participant in the unfolding scenario of emergence of a great India An India where 130 crore people belonging to three major ethnic groups – Aryans Dravidians and Mongoloids – practicing 7 major religions and speaking 122 languages in daily lives live under one Constitution one flag and one administrative system Hon’ble Members not a single part of this vast territory of 33 million square kilometers of landmass and islands is unrepresented in the Parliament 543 persons from the 543 territorial constituencies of this country representing the people in Lok Sabha and 245 persons elected by 29 States and 7 Union Territories make laws scrutinize orders of the executive and enforce accountability to protect the interests of the people Each of these 788 voices is important It is unfortunate that the parliamentary time devoted to legislation has been declining With the heightened complexity of administration legislation must be preceded by scrutiny and adequate discussion Scrutiny in committees is no substitute to open discussion on the floor of the House When the Parliament fails to discharge its law-making role or enacts laws without discussion I feel it breaches the trust reposed in it by the people of this great country File image of Pranab Mukhjerjee PTI Through the instrument of Ordinances the Executive has been vested with extraordinary powers to make laws to meet exigencies during a time when Parliament is not in session However such Ordinances have to be approved by Parliament within six weeks of the next session of the Parliament I am firm in the opinion that the Ordinance route should be used only in compelling circumstances and there should be no recourse to Ordinances on monetary matters Ordinance route should not be taken on matters which are being considered or have been introduced in the House or a committee of the House If a matter is deemed urgent the concerned committee should be made aware of the situation and should be mandated to present its report within the stipulated time Hon’ble Members: It was in July 2012 that my membership in Lok Sabha came to an end when I was declare elected as the 13th President of the Republic on 22nd of that month Even though thirty-seven years of my life in Parliament came to an end on that day but I still continued to have a tenacious link with this institution in fact I became an integral part of it as the President of Republic as per the Constitution Article 79 of the Indian Constitution says: “There shall be a Parliament for the Union which shall consist of the President and two Houses to be known respectively as the Council of States and the House of the People” In these five years my principal responsibility was to function as the guardian of the Constitution As I had said on oath I strived to preserve protect and defend our Constitution not just in word but also in spirit In this task I greatly benefitted from the advice and co-operation extended by Prime Minister Modi at every step With passion and energy he is driving transformational changes in the country I will carry with me fond memories of our association and his warm and courteous behaviour As I retire from the Office of the President of the Republic my association with the Parliament also comes to an end I will no longer be a part of the Parliament of India It will be with a tinge of sadness and a rainbow of memories that I will be leaving this magnificent building today Dear friends with a sense of gratitude and a prayer in my heart I take leave of you I leave with a sense of fulfilment and happiness of having served the people of this great country through this institution- as their humble servant Thank you Jai Hind The entire text has been taken exactly as posted by the official website of the President of India and has not been edited by Firstpost PoliticsDon’t Believe the New Myths About America’s White Working ClassJoe KleinSep 12 2016This has been an election year filled with sloppy sociology Democrats as usual mistakenly see voters primarily as members of vast amorphous "identity" groups rather than as individuals Now the Republicans have joined in "An odd symmetry has emerged between the political parties" William Galston of the Brookings Institution told me recently "Many Democrats have viewed racial and ethnic minorities as victims in the grip of larger forces and now Republicans are doing the same with the white working class"RelatedVotingPresident Trump Attacked Mail-In Ballots in Florida Here Are the FactsVotingPresident Trump Attacked Mail-In Ballots in Florida Here Are the FactsRemarkably the operating mythology of both groups–encouraged by ideologues on the right and politically correct ninnies on the left–is that they are oppressed by each other The current term of art among black intellectuals is white privilege and the current concern is police brutality Among Latinos the concern is bigotry and violence inflicted by gringo yahoos Meanwhile working-class whites are convinced that immigrants are taking their jobs and that blacks have long been coddled by public assistance In a recent National Review piece JD Vance author of Hillbilly Elegy cites research that shows "the average white person now feels that anti-white bias is a bigger problem than other forms of racial discrimination"Hillbilly Elegy has been the book of the summer among the political cognoscenti of both parties It is Vance’s memoir of his escape from the Appalachian culture of pride and poverty–a culture that seems to be disintegrating much the way the black working class fell apart starting in the 1960s but without the history of racial oppression The white out-of-wedlock birthrate which is about 30% is now higher than the black rate was (about 25%) when Daniel Patrick Moynihan correctly identified family disintegration as a significant problem in 1965 The current black rate has been stuck at about 70%There is significant irony here: the culture described in Hillbilly Elegy is so similar to that of the black underclass that it demolishes the perennial racist argument that these sorts of behaviors–sexual profligacy drug dependency violence indigence and a free-range sense of helplessness that leads to irresponsibility–are unique to African Americans Something else something far more complicated is going on a cultural dilemma that has erupted with the "liberation" of American society over the past 50 years It is a phenomenon that transcends the prevailing liberal (and Trumpian) theory that the white-black underclass was caused by the departure of manufacturing jobs That may have been true 40 years ago when the jobs began to leave But it is less true now as habits of indolence–the inability to show up to work on time the refusal to follow orders on the job the preference to hang out at a home often subsidized by the federal government–have taken hold Vance worked for a summer in a floor-tile warehouse near his hometown in Ohio It was relatively easy work paying $13 per hour a good salary in Appalachia But "the managers found it impossible to fill my warehouse position with a long-term employee" In hillbilly country as in urban America a great many people simply lack the discipline to workIt is eerie and depressing to read Vance’s account of his mother–a drug addict in and out of rehab with a series of husbands and boyfriends rotating in and out of the house He describes a close relative as "a classic welfare queen" He writes about 9-month-old babies being fed Pepsi in their bottles and the abuse of food stamps he saw as a cashier at the local grocery store All of these things were clichés deployed by Ronald Reagan and dismissed by liberals when he railed against poverty and welfare in 1980 But the conservative belief that the underclass was caused by federal antipoverty programs is clearly insufficient too Vance makes it clear that the problem is profoundly cultural a consequence of wanton commercialism the loosening of moral standards and a lack of rigorous training for young men Vance was saved by the Marine Corps and the support of a single loving adult his grandmotherHillbilly Elegy makes the current political dialogue seem fatuous Both parties are incapable of discussing the real sources of our national dyspepsia or how to deal with them Forces like the global economy racism and federal programs that cultivated dependency have all been part of the problem But what we have now is something different: a bottom-up crisis of individual responsibility largely beyond the reach of public policy Indeed some of the "solutions" proposed by each of the parties are likely to make things worseTwitter is investigating threats made against its employees by people claiming ties to the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) A message appeared online Sunday calling on ISIS supporters to kill Twitter employees apparently in response to the company’s efforts to block ISIS-related accounts "You started this failed war" reads one post in Arabic "We told you from the beginning its not your war but you didnt get it and kept closing our accounts on Twitter but we will soon come back" One message singled out Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey in particular showing an image of crosshairs overlaid on Dorsey’s face Dorsey is now CEO of mobile payments company Square “Our security team is investigating the veracity of these threats with relevant law enforcement officials” said Twitter spokesman Jim Prosser ISIS has often used Twitter and other social media to broadcast its message publish video of violent acts and recruit new followers The group has shown a penchant for “gaming” Twitter by using automated accounts to make its online supporter base seem larger than it likely actually is Meanwhile Twitter regularly deletes posts and suspends accounts showing executions or violent actions The company’s terms of service ban posting “direct specific threats of violence against others” Peek Inside Kobani After Kurds Claim
