International Cricket Council to join hands with Interpol to tackle corruption

first_imgThe International Cricket Council (ICC) will work more closely with Interpol as part of ongoing efforts to combat corruption in the sport, the governing body said on Wednesday.Alex Marshall, ICC’s general manager of its anti-corruption unit, met Interpol officials in Lyon last week to seek closer working relations, it added.”The ICC has an excellent relationship with law enforcement agencies in a number of countries but working with Interpol means we are connecting with their 194 members,” Marshall said in a statement.”Our focus is on education of players and prevention and disruption of corruptors. Where our enquiries reveal criminal offences have been committed, we will refer this to the relevant law enforcement organisations and this makes Interpol an important partner for us.”Cricket has suffered a series of corruption cases in recent years.In 2011, Pakistan’s Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir were found guilty of taking bribes to fix part of a test match against England in a case that prosecutors said revealed rampant corruption at the heart of international cricket.Earlier this year, the ICC had granted Sri Lankan cricketers a 15-day amnesty to report previously undisclosed information relating to corruption in the sport.It was followed by former captain and chairman of selectors Sanath Jayasuriya being handed a two-year ban for refusing to cooperate with any investigation conducted by its anti-corruption unit.Also Read | Virat Kohli as captain of India and RCB: 7 successive losses since March 8Also Read | IPL 2019: Ajinkya Rahane relieved to get points on board after RR beat RCB for first winadvertisementAlso See:last_img read more

Lamborghini’s Raging Huracan Performante Bucks its Way into Geneva

first_img The Maserati Quattroporte: Luxury You Can Sort of Almost Imagine Affording 6 Fastest Cars in the World Right Now Editors’ Recommendations A Breakdown of All the Major Types of Car Racing Automakers often use teaser images and clips to hype up a new product introduction before the grand reveal, but Lamborghini decided to kick things up a notch.Last week, the Italian supercar manufacturer sent its most extreme Huracan, the Performante, around the famed Nurburgring for a recorded lap. The result was a blistering time of 6 minutes and 52 seconds, five seconds quicker than Porsche’s 918 Spyder (which was the current record holder).It was this “red carpet” of sorts upon which Lamborghini introduced its new model at this year’s Geneva Motor Show.The Performante is not only the fastest Huracan, it’s also Lamborghini’s most powerful V10 model ever built. 640 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque is available from the same 5.2-liter V10 as the standard Huracan. Tweaks to the powertrain include a bronze manifold, new intake, and titanium valve exhaust. Like the LP610-4, power is sent to all four wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Top speed rises to 202 mph and 0 to 60 mph drops to just 2.9 seconds.center_img Indian Motorcycle’s 2020 Scout Lineup Pays Homage to Its 100-Year Legacy Beyond the extra power, Lamborghini has shed 88 pounds from the Huracan thanks in part to more extensive use of Forged Composite. The Performante also uses Aerodinamica Lamborghini Attiva (ALA), which is Italian for active aerodynamics. Specifically, the front and rear spoilers will adjust depending on a need for less drag or for greater downforce when cornering. These aerodynamic modifications have increased downforce by 750 percent over the regular Huracan.

Morocco Fields 4 Athletes for Cross Country Championship in Denmark

Rabat – Morocco is sending four senior athletes to the 43rd World Cross Country Championships in Aarhus, Denmark, on March 30.One of the athletes is Abdalaati Iguider, 32, a seasoned middle distance runner who has represented Morocco in various championships since 2004. Iguidor won bronze at the London Olympic Games and the IAAF World Indoor Championship title in 2012 for the 1,500 meters. In 2015, Iguider became the eighth fastest ever to run the 1,500 meter at the Herculis Diamond League in Monaco.Rababe Arafi, 28, will also be competing in Denmark. An outstanding athlete, in 2018, Arafi was the only athlete to secure a double victory at the Mediterranean Games in the women’s 800 meter and 1,500 meter. Arafi also earned three medals at the African Championships in Athletics in 2012. A steeplechase runner, Soufiane El Bakkali, 23, is the third senior athlete on his way to Denmark. He secured first in the 3,000 meter steeplechase race in 2018 in Spain and won second place at the African Championships in Asaba, Nigeria, the same year.Kaoutar Farkoussi, a 23-year-old long-distance runner, rounds out the senior Moroccan team. The Royal Moroccan Federation of Athletics (FRMA) announced the runners on its website.In preparation, the athletes are undergoing an intensive training period in Ifrane, a city in the Middle Atlas Mountains known for its ideal atmosphere for athletes, according to Anfas Press.Although FRMA is only sending four senior athletes to Denmark, it has a more robust junior squad. Eleven junior athletes, five boys and six girls, will be at the start line of the world championship. Morocco hosted the World Cross Country Championships twice, in 1975 and 1998. Future prospects for Moroccan athletesIn retired professional runner Hicham El Guerrouj’s view, the situation of athletics in Morocco has become dismal. Morocco enjoyed a formidable reputation in running in the 1980s and 1990s thanks to professional athletes like Hicham El Guerrouj, whose trailblazing trajectory, along with the prowess of Nawal El Moutawakel, Said Aouita, and others, is still a source of pride for Moroccans.A retired Moroccan track and field Olympian, Said Aouita, now 59, won gold in the 5,000-meter at the 1984 Summer Olympics and the 1987 IAAF World Championships in Athletics and won gold in the 3,000 meter at the 1989 IAAF World Indoor Championships. Called the Moroccan sportsman of the century, Aouita set five outdoor records for the 1,500-meter, 2,000-meter, 3,000-meter, 5,000-meter, and two miles. He also set a record for the indoor 3,000 meter. After Aouita began losing ground to Algerian athlete Noureddine Morceli in the 1990s, El Guerrouj, a middle-distance runner, won Morocco’s pride back. El Guerrouj still holds the world record for the outdoor 1,500-meter, 1 mile, and 2,000-meter events. He also held the indoor world record for the 1 mile and 1,500-meter events from 1997 up until February and March this year. The first Moroccan to win a world championship medal after Said Aouita, the now-retired 44-year-old El Guerrouj is regarded one of the best middle-distance runners globally. At the 2004 Summer Olympics, he was the first to win both the 1,500-meter and 5,000-meter at the Olympics since 1924. In a nine-year span, El Guerrouj competed in 68 1,500-meter races, winning 63 of them.Nawal el Moutawakel, 56, made history for Moroccans after winning her first medal in the Los Angeles Olympics in 1984 in the 400 meter hurdles, making her the first Arab, African, and Muslim woman—and the first Moroccan athlete male or female—to win a gold medal at the world stage in that event. According to Jeune Afrique magazine, she was also ranked among the 50th most influential African personalities in the world in 2014.In an interview with Radio Mars, Hicham El Guerrouj expressed despair at the condition of athletics in Morocco earlier this year.Especially for those coming from lower social classes, El Guerrouj said they are not given the opportunity to showcase their talents.“Today, the reality is that [Moroccan] athletics is going from bad to worse, from failures to even more failures, and as a result generations of athletes are unfortunately lost,” el Guerrouj stated. “Today athletes don’t even have places to change or take a bath, this should be punished. I call on King Mohammed VI to save [Moroccan] athletes.” read more

The declaration calls on the Nicaraguan Government and all members of society to engage constructively in dialogue to address the country’s challenges and to stop all forms of violence.The country has been gripped by mass protests since mid-April.“The Secretary-General is encouraged that the Government is working with the OAS on electoral issues as well as with the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) on the establishment of a Group of International Independent Experts to investigate the recent violence and expresses his solidarity with the people of Nicaragua,” said UN Spokesperson Stephane Dujarric in a statement issued on Wednesday.“The United Nations system stands ready to provide technical support to the dialogue mediated by the Nicaraguan Catholic Bishop Conference and to the IACHR initiatives,” Mr. Dujarric concluded.The aim of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights – an OAS organ – is to promote and protect rights in the American hemisphere. read more

The 100 millionth Filipino baby was born this morning

first_imgA BABY GIRL born this morning has officially pushed the population of the Philippines to 100 million, highlighting the challenge of providing for more people in the already-impoverished nation.The child, Jennalyn Sentino, was one of 100 babies born in state hospitals all over the archipelago who received the symbolic designation of “100,000,000th baby”.“This is both an opportunity and a challenge… an opportunity we should take advantage of and a challenge we recognise,” Juan Antonio Perez, executive director of the official Commission on Population, told AFP.While a growing population means a larger workforce, it also means more dependents in a country where about 25 percent of people are living in poverty, he said.He said the Philippines had to find a way to bring services to the poorest families while also lowering the average number of children that fertile women will bear in their lifetimes.“We’d like to push the fertility rate down to two children per (woman’s) lifetime,” from the current level of an average of three per woman, he said.While celebrating the birth of the babies with cake and gifts of clothing and blankets, the government will also monitor each of the designated 100 children over the coming years to see if they are receiving the required health services, Perez added.Jennalyn’s father, 45-year-old van driver Clemente Sentino, said he was grateful for the government aid, but expressed confidence he could support his child and his partner.He and the child’s mother, Dailin Cabigayan, 27, are not yet married. “She just happened to get pregnant. But we do have plans to get married,” he told AFP.“I make just enough to get by but at least my job pays regularly. We will find a way to make it fit,” he said.‘Investing in people’Efforts to control the Philippines’ population growth have long been hampered by the influence of the Roman Catholic Church, which counts about 80 percent of Filipinos as followers and which disapproves of all forms of artificial birth control.It was only in April that the government finally overcame over a decade of Church opposition to implement a reproductive health law providing the poor with birth control services.Perez said with the law’s implementation, about two to three million women who previously did not have access to family planning now do.Meanwhile, Father Melvin Castro, head of the commission on family and life of the country’s Catholic bishops, was quoted by a church-run radio station as praising the ballooning population, as there would be more “young workers” to power the economy.President Benigno Aquino’s spokesman Herminio Coloma said the milestone showed the importance of making “the right investments in people”.The government had prepared for this by spending more on “human development”, particularly education, he told reporters.Meanwhile, Klaus Beck, country representative of the United Nations Population Fund, endorsed the Philippines’ new focus on family planning in a statement issued to coincide with the population landmark.“Governments that are serious about eradicating poverty should also be serious about providing the services, supplies, information that women, men and young people need to exercise their reproductive rights,” he said.- © AFP 2014.Read: Population of the Greater Dublin Area could grow by 400,000 over 20 years>Read: Irish people are having fewer babies, but still quite like getting married>last_img read more

Licensing subagent shut down by auditor 21000 missing

first_imgClark County Auditor Greg Kimsey said Tuesday that he has canceled the contract with a licensing subagent, the Vancouver Market Center Auto License.The office, at 5000 E. Fourth Plain Blvd., was closed Aug. 3, Kimsey said. He said his staff conducted an extensive review and reported to the Vancouver Police Department that $21,000 has been not properly accounted for.No arrests have been made and the case remains under investigation, said Kim Kapp, spokeswoman for the police department.“While this is an unfortunate incident, our procedures and controls proved very effective in detecting the problems,” Kimsey said. “As a result we made a timely report to law enforcement and will continue our effort to protect public funds. If it is determined that a loss of public funds occurred, recovery will be actively pursued.”Vehicle licensing subagents are private enterprises that contract with the county to license vehicles and boats on behalf of the county and the state Department of Licensing. The offices are supported by customer service fees.Kimsey said his staff contacted auto dealers and people who had recently used the office and found nine transactions had not been completed.He said he closed the office last month after determining terms of the contract had not been met, including the fact the office was not properly depositing money.People can ask questions about transactions made at the Vancouver Market Center Auto License at the Clark County Auto Licensing Office, 1408 Franklin St., 360-397-2288.There are nine other licensing subagent offices in Clark County.last_img read more

Republicans fail again to kill off Obamacare

first_imgProtesters before a hearing on repealing Obamacare on Capitol Hill in Washington. Photo: ReutersUS Republicans on Tuesday fell short yet again in their seven-year drive to repeal Obamacare, in a bitter defeat that raises more questions about their ability to enact President Donald Trump’s agenda.The party was unable to win enough support from its own senators for a bill to repeal the 2010 Affordable Care Act and decided not to put it to a vote, several Republicans said. The bill’s sponsors vowed to try again, but face steeper odds after Sunday, when special rules expire that allow them to pass healthcare legislation without Democratic support.“We basically ran out of time,” said Senator Ron Johnson, a co-sponsor of the measure with Senators Bill Cassidy, Lindsey Graham and Dean Heller.Republicans have now repeatedly failed to deliver on their longtime promise to roll back former Democratic President Barack Obama’s signature domestic accomplishment.They have yet to achieve any major domestic policy successes in Congress this year, which could hurt their efforts to retain control of the Senate and House of Representatives in the November 2018 congressional elections.Republicans widely view Obamacare, which provides coverage to 20 million Americans, as a costly government overreach. Trump vowed frequently during the 2016 election campaign to scrap it. Democrats have fiercely defended it, saying it has extended health insurance to millions.After falling short in July, Senate Republicans tried again this month with a bill that would have given states greater control over the hundreds of billions of dollars that the federal government spends annually on health care.As before, they ran into objections from members on the right and the center who opposed repeal for essentially opposite reasons.Senator Susan Collins, a moderate, complained it undermined the Medicaid program for the poor and weakened consumer protections. Senator Rand Paul, a conservative, said it left too many of Obamacare’s regulations and spending programs in place.Democrats said it was time for Republicans to work with them to fix Obamacare’s shortcomings, and Republican Senator Lamar Alexander said he would resume talks with Democratic Senator Patty Murray to shore up the law’s insurance subsidies.Shares of healthcare providers ended broadly higher. Hospital company HCA Healthcare Inc rose 1.8 percent, while insurer Centene Corp, which focuses on Medicaid, rose 2.2 per cent.The insurance industry, hospitals, medical advocacy groups such as the American Medical Association, American Heart Association and American Cancer Society, the AARP advocacy group for the elderly and consumer activists opposed the latest bill.TRUMP DISAPPOINTEDTrump said on Tuesday his administration was disappointed in “certain so-called Republicans” who did not support the bill. The Republican president said later he still had not given up hope that the law would eventually be repealed. “It’ll happen,” he told reporters while traveling to New York for a fundraiser.Republicans hold a slim 52-48 majority in the Senate and at least three senators – Collins, Paul and John McCain of Arizona – had publicly rejected the bill.Republicans crafted special rules earlier this year that allowed them to pass a bill with a simple majority in the 100-seat chamber. After those rules expire at the start of the new fiscal year on Sunday, they will need at least 60 votes to advance most legislation.John Thune, a member of the Republican leadership in the Senate, said the party would likely not try to undo Obamacare again until it was clear there were enough votes for it. He said the party would now focus on overhauling the US tax code – another complex undertaking that could meet with stiff resistance from a wide range of interest groups.A CBS poll on Monday showed 52 per cent of Americans disapproved of the Graham-Cassidy healthcare bill, while 20 per cent approved.“I will readily admit that the Republican Party has done a bad job of explaining what we’re for in terms of replace on Obamacare,” Republican Senator Ben Sasse said on the Senate floor.Six protesters staged a “die-in” on the floor of a Senate office building, lying on the ground and covering their heads and bodies with a white shroud to represent what they said would be lives lost if the bill passed.The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office said the number of people with health insurance covering high-cost medical events would be slashed by millions if the latest Republican bill had it become law.The CBO also found that federal spending on Medicaid would be cut by about $1 trillion from 2017 to 2026 and that millions of people would lose their coverage in the program, mainly from a repeal of federal funding for Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion.last_img read more
