Mithali Raj’s heartbreak in World Cup finals continues after India go down by 9 runs

first_imgMithali Raj’s heartbreak continued as India lost to England by nine runs in the final of the Women’s World Cup at Lord’s on Sunday. She was the captain of the Indian team that lost to Australia in the final of the Women’s World Cup back in 2005 at Centurion as well.Ahead of the big final, Mithali had said that she wanted to go a step further and lift the Cup this time.”It’s been seven years since we qualified for the final and 12 years since we reached the final. So, the girls want to do well. 2005 we were runners-up and this time I want to go one step further,” said the Indian captain.But her poor luck continued. Mithali and Jhulan Goswami were the only players from the 2005 team and both sounded positive about a victory after the English were restricted to 228/7 from their 50 overs and India were on course for a victory after a flying start.But, England pulled off a remarkable comeback to bowl India out for 219 and lift their fourth World Cup.GOOD TOURNAMENT FOR THE VETERANSMithali and Jhulan both stood up in the tournament. While Mithali finished as the second highest run-getter with 409 from nine games in the tournament, Goswami picked up 10 wickets in this year’s edition. Although Mithali missed out in the final, Goswami did not. She came up with an inspiring performance in the final to help India restrict England 228/7.Meanwhile, the India captain was the most consistent player of the tournament. She got runs in most of the matches and led the team brilliantly and showed great calmness under pressure. The 34-year-old stood up and hammered a century against New Zealand in a must-win game for India and also played an important knock of 36 against Australia in the semis. She formed an important partnership with Harmanpreet Kaur to stabilise the innings before the all-rounder smashed her way to a 115-ball 171*.advertisementOn a personal note, Mithali became the first woman to score seven consecutive fifties in One-Day Internationals. Not only that, she is currently the highest run scorer in ODIs with 6190 runs from 186 matches and averages a whopping 51.58. She has hit six centuries and 49 half-centuries.last_img read more

Pique in talks with Barcelona pal Messi about FC Andorra investmentby Carlos Volcano10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveBarcelona defender Gerard Pique is in talks with Leo Messi about a shareholding in FC Andorra.Sport says talks are at an advanced stage and there could be an agreement made public between all implicated parties in the coming days. Pique’s desire is to get Messi on board as a shareholder. Even though the Argentine star’s involvement would be minor, the Barça defender is aware that just Messi’s image is one of the best possible spokesmen to expand the project internationally. Andorra insiders say talks are well down the line and the official announcement could come at a press conference which will be held to reveal the club’s new ambitious structure.

NOTABLE TV MOMENTS IN THE YEAR OF TRUMP

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement Justin Theroux in The Leftovers, whose three seasons were the most audaciously imagined, brilliantly written and beautifully acted work Johanna Schneller has ever seen. (BEN KING/HBO) Facebook Login/Register With: Advertisementcenter_img Advertisement Late Night Comedians: By doing astute takedowns of Trump, Stephen Colbert surged ahead, as did Seth Meyers. Trevor Noah found his voice. Samantha Bee stepped fully into her role as avenger of female anger. But the most interesting change, for me, was the politicization of Jimmy Kimmel, as he cited his infant son Billy’s heart problems as a plea to keep the Affordable Care Act. I knew it would be bad, but it is worse than I thought. U.S. President Donald Trump and his gang of thieves are real-life versions of Dr. Evil’s henchmen, sitting in their underground lair, rubbing their hands together as they cackle, “Let’s kill elephants!” and “Let’s make the lowest-income people pay for tax breaks for the highest!”Television in 2017 is arguably the best it’s ever been, but the things I watched that affected me the most all seemed to relate, one way or another, to what was happening in the White House and how that impacted North America’s psyche.Trump Himself: There were a couple of funny moments. Melania slapping Donald’s hand away. The Mooch. Angela Merkel shrugging after the handshake that wasn’t. Anthony Atamanuik’s eerily accurate impression on The President Show, which captures that unfillable maw of need at Trump’s core. Trump slurring “God blesh the Uni-ed Shash,” because he was too vain to take a sip of water. There was even one heartwarming moment: the December night that Alabama did not vote for alleged pedophile Roy Moore for U.S. Senate. But as the year wore on, I felt like my soul was being dragged over broken glass and I lost my sense of humour. There were so many low points, but the lowest had to be Trump’s post-Charlottesville Nazi march news conference. “On many sides” is a phrase that will live in infamy.Jimmy Kimmel is keeping the pressure on U.S. politicians, appearing on his late-night show with son Billy in his arms, writes Johanna Schneller.  (RANDY HOLMES/ABC)   Twitterlast_img read more

Intensity passion fueled Spielmans fire

From recent stars James Laurinaitis and A.J. Hawk to past greats like Tom Cousineau and Randy Gradishar, Ohio State’s linebacking corps can perennially be discussed as one of the nation’s best.And when it comes to college linebackers past and present, few rival Chris Spielman.“There is no question he is one of the best,” said Jack Park, author of The Official Ohio State Football Encyclopedia. “I can’t imagine anybody picking the top 25 players in football history at Ohio State and not including Chris Spielman in that group.”A Canton, Ohio, native, hype began surrounding Spielman in high school when his play made him the first high school athlete to land his face on a Wheaties box.In 1984, Spielman traded in his Massillon Washington High School uniform for scarlet and gray to begin what would prove to be an illustrious college football career at OSU.Both Park and Jim Karsatos, former OSU quarterback and teammate of Spielman, agreed that Spielman’s intensity set him apart.“Chris Spielman had an intensity as great as probably any football player I have ever studied or known,” Park said. “He had an intensity about him as a player that was almost unequaled.”As a freshman, Spielman wasted little time proving his intensity and passion for the game to his teammates and the Buckeye faithful.“In practice he worked as hard as anybody out there,” Karsatos said. “His intensity was contagious, even as a younger player, and the older guys fed off of that.”By his sophomore year in 1985, Spielman began to establish himself as a household name and a force to be reckoned with on the “silver bullet” defense.The play that sticks out the most in Park’s mind came in a game that year in which Spielman had 19 tackles.It was a game that pinned the Buckeyes against the No. 1-ranked Iowa Hawkeyes in the Horseshoe for what Park called one of the greatest OSU victories of all time.“It was a fourth-down play and Iowa gave it to their tailback,” Park said. “Chris made the tackle and that really started to seal the game.”“Spielman made a lot of big plays when the team needed it the most,” he said.Chris continued to make big plays over the next two seasons, as he finished his college career with 546 tackles, good for third all-time at OSU. He finished in the top 10 in Heisman voting each of his last two years, almost unprecedented at the linebacker position.“On the field, he was all over the place and he had a great nose for the ball,” Karsatos said. “He could make big plays when we needed them and on the sideline he was just as intense and kept everybody up and into the game.”Spielman exhibited his nose for the ball on the grandest of stages, including the 1986 Michigan game. He made 29 tackles that afternoon, the OSU record for most tackles in a game.“They already knew what kind of player Chris was and knew they had to block him,” Karsatos said. “For him to get in on that many tackles in that kind of football game was pretty incredible.”Following his senior season in 1987, Spielman left OSU as one of the most decorated linebackers in program history, receiving the OSU Most Valuable Player and the Lombardi Award, along with being a three-time All-Big Ten honoree and two-time All-American.Retired from a successful NFL career that included four Pro Bowl appearances, Spielman, a recent inductee into the College Football Hall of Fame, now co-hosts a Columbus sports talk radio show.Along with his work on the radio, Spielman has continued to write his legacy in the Columbus community through the efforts of him and his late wife Stefanie establishing the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research in 1998.Since its inception, the Stefanie Spielman Fund has raised over $6.5 million for breast cancer research at OSU’s James Cancer Hospital.“He will always be remembered as one of the really great football players,” Park said. “But I think years from now when people look back and say ‘what is the legacy of Chris Spielman,’ it will be what he has done for other people through the James (Cancer Hospital).” read more

Womens Hockey No 5 Ohio State records first loss of season against

Ohio State then-freshman forward Emma Maltais (17) heads back out on the ice to start the second period of the game against Minnesota on Jan. 19. Ohio State won 3-2. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Managing Editor for DesignNo. 5 Ohio State (3-1) lost its first game of the season in the second game of the weekend series against No. 8 Colgate (2-2) by a score of 5-2.Ohio State head coach Nadine Muzerall said she saw a different team than the one that defeated the Raiders last night.“You don’t know why a team can play so dominant yesterday and the first 20 minutes of the first period and then disappear,” Muzerall said. “Against a good team like Colgate, they are going keep coming back at you, so you can’t wait until the third to try and win the hockey game.”Ohio State struck first less than eight minutes into the first period off a strike by sophomore forward Liz Scheppers to give the Buckeyes a 1-0 lead. Senior forward Madison Field and redshirt junior defenseman Jincy Dunne recorded assists on the goal. This assist was Dunne’s third on the season in only four games. Still early in the game, the Buckeyes extended their lead off a goal less than three minutes later when sophomore forward Tatum Skaggs scored her fourth goal of the season in as many games to make the score 2-0. Sophomore forward Emma Maltais received an assist on the play. However, momentum quickly shifted to Colgate as the game moved into the second period.Colgate struck back just 36 seconds into the second period to close the gap to 2-1 when freshman Nemo Neubauerova knocked a shot by freshman goaltender Andrea Braendli with an assist by senior defenseman Olivia Zafuto. Taking advantage of a power play, Colgate tied the game up at two all 5:10 into the second period off a power play goal by freshman forward Delani MacKay with assists by sophomore forward Malia Schneider and senior forward Jesse Eldridge.The domination of the second period by Colgate continued as a goal by senior forward Shae Labbe 14:59 into the second period gave Colgate the lead for the first time, 3-2. Senior forward Bailey Larson got an assist for the play. “It was unfortunate that we gave up in the second, which dominantly, we don’t,” Muzerall said. “We usually dominate the second period, so when we had such a great first period, I was very excited for the second knowing that we usually are in control of it, but Colgate came to win, and Saturday games are always tougher.”Throughout the entirety of the second period, Ohio State was held to just four shots on goal to Colgate’s 14. The Buckeyes outshot Colgate 19-8 in the first period. “I think our first period was great, but then Colgate came out flying in the second period,” Dunne said. “You got to give them credit, they are a national championship contender. They don’t quit, and they don’t give up. I think we were a little on our heels and they took advantage of that.”The Buckeyes continued to lose momentum, as with just 2:10 left in the third period, sophomore forward Coralie Larose added an insurance goal for Colgate to extend their lead to 4-2, marking the fourth goal that Braendli gave up. Larose was assisted by senior forward Bailey Larson and sophomore defenseman Shelby Wood.In Braendli’s first start of her collegiate career, she recorded 32 saves and gave up four goals. “If you look on the scoreboard, that doesn’t tell you everything if you watch the hockey game,” Muzerall said. “She couldn’t see two of the goals. We had way too much traffic and if we’re going to do that, we have to block it. The other two, you have to give Colgate credit. They scored four goals on us this weekend with that top shelf goal shot. Her angling was pretty good on both of them, they were just good shots.” Just over a minute later, senior forward Shae Labbe scored her second goal of the game with an empty net goal to make the score 5-2 and end all chances of an Ohio State comeback. “I don’t think you ever put yourself in a good position when you have to play desperate,” Dunne said. “We were given chances and we just got to capitalize. I think it’s opportunity for us to learn how to play when we’re down, and when we do need an extra goal, what do we need to do to get that.” read more

Dalic Croatia dont intend to stop here

first_imgCroatia boss Zlatko Dalic insists that they intend to go beyond the quarter-finals of the World Cup after booking their place to the last-eight in a tense penalty shoot-out win over DenmarkAfter some impressive displays in their opening three games of the tournament, Croatia failed to build on their Group D win in a convincing manner in what turned out to a rather disappointing match against Group C runners-up Denmark.Mario Mandzukic cancelled out Martin Jorgensen’s 1st-minute opener for the Danes by taking advantage of a mix-up to grab the equaliser just three minutes later.The scoreline remained the same for the rest of the game with the Vatreni later securing a 3-2 win in a penalty shoot-out.But Dalic insists that his side are far from done.“We have come so far but we don’t intend to stop here,” said the 51-year-old, according to The National.Goalkeeper Danijel Subasic saved three spot-kicks form Nicolai Jorgensen, Lasse Schone and Christian Eriksen.ScotlandScotland needs a hero: Billy Dodds Manuel R. Medina – September 10, 2019 According to former striker, Billy Dodds his country needs a hero to inspire future generations as the team’s hope to qualify to the EURO 2020 is small.“You have to earn your luck and the lads earned theirs,” added Dalic.“Without luck, you cannot do anything in life.”The Croatian coach was full of praise for Luka Modric, who missed a golden chance to hand the side the win when he missed a 116th-minute extra-time penalty.But the captain then later stepped up to score in the penalty shoot-out.“He said it himself, ‘I am going to take a penalty in the shoot-out,’” said Dalic.“Can you imagine what would have happened if he had not scored, but he’s a great player.”Croatia will now meet hosts Russia at the Fisht Olympic Stadium on Saturday for the quarter-finals of the World Cup.last_img read more

Lifx teases colorchanging candelabra bulbs at CES 2019

first_img CES 2019 CNET Smart Home Tags Mentioned Above Lifx Tile Check out all the smart home products at CES 2019 Best Buy Review • Smart, multicolor Lifx Tiles might drive you up the wall CNET may get a commission from retail offers. Multicolor candelabra bulbs, coming soon from Lifx. Ry Crist/CNET Lifx is adding color-changing candelabra bulbs to its lineup of smart LED lights, the company tells me at CES 2019 here in Las Vegas. Pricing isn’t set yet, but Lifx expects them to launch in the third quarter of 2019. What makes these lights especially interesting is that they can put out multiple colors at once — a fairly uncommon feature, even among larger-sized smart bulbs. That lets them simulate a flickering flame, or put out some of the same animated, tie-dye-type effects that you get with the multicolor Lifx Tile wall panels. The controls for the bulbs are similar to the Tiles, too. Along with controlling and automating them, you’ll be able to paint designs onto each bulb by dragging your finger over a bulb-shaped canvas in the Lifx app. Lifx tells me that each color-changing diode inside of the bulb is its own individual zone of light. That adds up to a total of 30 zones that you can paint colors across. lifx-cnadelabra-bulbs-appEnlarge ImageYou can paint colors onto the bulb by dragging your finger across a bulb-shaped canvas in the Lifx app. Ry Crist/CNET Beyond basic color control, Lifx claims that it sees growing interest in smart lighting that feels artistic and expressive. “It feels like the tide is shifting,” Lifx CEO Tim Peters tells me, expressing hope that the candelabra bulbs will help scratch that itch for its customers. The question is how much these things will ultimately cost at launch. It’ll likely be a lot. Color-changing candelabra bulbs from Philips Hue currently sell for about $50 each — and those only put out one color at a time. It wouldn’t surprise me if the multicolor Lifx versions cost even more, which could fast get prohibitively expensive for folks looking to upgrade a fixture with multiple bulbs in it. When we know more on that front, we’ll let you know — and expect a full review from the CNET Smart Home as soon as the bulbs arrive.

first_imgBella Thorne nude pictures leaked onlineBella Thorne (@bellathorne/Instagram)Bella Thorne made thousands of heads turned after she shared nude photos of herself on Twitter after an alleged hacker threatened her to release the videos and pictures on an x-rated website. Things did not go well for Thorne as she found herself receiving the blame from Whoopi Goldberg. But things have now started to turn for the model as she is receiving massive support online.As earlier reported, Whoopi Goldberg was not too pleased by Bella Thorne’s decision to release her own nudes. As per the Academy Award-winning actress, “I don’t care how old you are… you don’t take nude photos of yourself.” She even stated that “You cannot be surprised that someone has hacked you, especially if you have stuff on your phone. That’s why they’re hacking you.”Following which, the 21-year-old Bella took to Instagram to give a fitting reply to Whoopi. The famous model said in a tearful video that “Shame on you for putting that public opinion out there like that for every young girl to think that they’re disgusting for even taking a photo like that. Shame on you.”Now that this news has become a viral sensation, Bella Thorne is now finding herself on a more comfortable place as she is getting all the positive support from every corner.The Spider-Man: Far From Home actress Zendaya reportedly called Bella to make sure if she is doing well or not. The duo talked a lot about this generation and how as “women we shouldn’t feel bad about ourselves our bodies.” In addition to this, Bella Instagrammed several supportive message chats from her friends — including Madison Beer, Lily Rose-Depp, and Lucy Hale. In one of her conversation, Hale wrote the following:”Good for you baby girl. I’m so proud of you for speaking up. This breaks my heart. But you’re making a difference for other girls and women.”Descendants 3 actress Dove Cameron posted a lengthy tweet and stated that “where is the support for young women. I love women. Everyone should love women. Don’t be an a**hole! Sexuality is part of being HUMAN. But judgment and objectification is not. ugh, I can’t handle to ugly.” She even called Whoopi Goldberg that she does not have any kind words for her.last_img read more

Ted Cruz Leads Beto ORourke 4943 in Quinnipiac Poll

first_imgMarjorie Kamys Cotera: O’Rourke/Bob Daemmrich: CruzU.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-El Paso (left), is challenging Republican incumbent U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz.A new poll released Wednesday morning suggests a tightening race between U.S. Sen Ted Cruz and U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke.The newly released poll from Quinnipiac University gives Cruz a six point lead: 49 percent of registered Texas voters reported backing the Republican incumbent while 43 percent said they support O’Rourke, an El Paso Democrat. The poll’s margin of error is 3.5 percent. The results are closer than a poll Quinnipiac released in late May, which showed Cruz holding an 11-point lead over his opponent.“U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz has a slight, by no means overwhelming, lead,” said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac Poll. “Congressman Beto O’Rourke has done a good job making the race competitive. With three months until Election Day, he is clearly in contention. A Democratic victory in the Lone Star state would be a serious blow to GOP hopes of keeping their U.S. Senate majority.”The poll found 50 percent of Texas voters had a favorable view of Cruz while 42 percent had an unfavorable view. O’Rourke, on the other hand, had a 33 percent favorability rating, with 43 percent of voters not knowing enough about the congressman to form an opinion of him.Quinnipiac released its poll just hours after Texas Lyceum released polling that showed the race between Cruz and O’Rourke as in a dead heat.Texas Lyceum showed Cruz having a slim 2-point lead over O’Rourke: 41 percent to 39 percent. Nineteen percent of voters said they were undecided. Cruz’s lead in that poll fell within the 4.67 percent margin of error.“O’Rourke continues to nip at Cruz’s heels, but it’s a long way to go until Election Day,” Josh Blank, Lyceum Poll Research Director, said in a news release. “If this race looks different than the rest, that’s probably because it is because a strong Democratic challenger raising prolific sums of money and tons of earned media.”Even before it was released the Lyceum poll drew skepticism from Cruz supporters. Cruz’s pollster Chris Wilson published an article on Mediumquestioning whether it would be accurate.“Dating back to 2008 the Texas Lyceum has generously given Democrats a massive house effect boost of seven (7!!!) points,” he wrote, adding that the poll has historically overestimated the share of the Hispanic vote.With 97 days before the November general election, both polls revealed good news for Gov. Greg Abbott in his bid for re-election against former Dallas County Sheriff Lupe Valdez. The Republican incumbent — who’s sitting on a hefty war chest ahead of November — is leading his opponent by 16 percentage points with 22 percent of likely voters undecided, according to the Texas Lyceum poll. The Quinnipiac poll gave Abbott a 13 point lead over Valdez.And two other Republican statewides – Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick and Attorney General Ken Paxton – hold 10 point leads over their Democratic challengers Mike Coller and Justin Nelson, respectively, according to the Lyceum poll. Quinnipiac did not poll the lieutenant governor or attorney general’s races.Meanwhile, President Donald Trump is in a less comfortable position among Texas voters. Among those surveyed in the Texas Lyceum poll, 52 percent said they disapproved of the president’s job performance — including 85 percent of Democrats. Eighty-five percent of Republicans said they were satisfied with Trump. These numbers are on par with what Quinnipiac found: 46 percent of Texans said they approve of the job the president is doing, while 49 percent disapprove.In its news release, Texas Lyceum said its poll was conducted via a telephone survey of adult Texans. Respondents were randomly selected and questioned by live interviewers, pollsters said.Disclosure: Texas Lyceum has been a financial supporter of The Texas Tribune, a nonprofit, nonpartisan news organization that is funded in part by donations from members, foundations and corporate sponsors.
