Former England batsman Kevin Pietersen has offered a piece of advice to all batters, especially right-handers — to help tackle Indian fast bowling spearhead and ICC world no 1. Jasprit Bumrah during the ongoing edition of the World Cup.The key for the right-handed batsman while facing Bumrah is to take an off-stump guard and try and hit him between straight down the pitch and square leg, Pietersen took to Twitter to help the batters in the showpiece event.”Quick memo to all right-handed batters – get onto off stump against Bumrah and look to hit him from, straight back at the stumps to square leg. Eliminate the off side completely!” tweeted Pietersen.In the opening World Cup game against South Africa, Bumrah was once again at his menacing best as he scalped two wickets and broke the back of the Proteas top-order. His figures of 2/35 along with Yuzvendra Chahal’s 4/51, helped India restrict Proteas to 227 which the Men in Blue chased down with six wickets in hand at the Ageas Bowl on Wednesday.Bumrah, 25, has so far taken 87 wickets in 50 matches he has played at an average of 22.0 and strike rate of 29.5. Since his ODI debut, no bowler has taken more wickets in death overs than Bumrah’s 44.India will face Australia in their next World Cup encounter on Sunday and the onus will once against be on Bumrah to take the Men in Blue off to a good start with the ball.Also Read | World Cup 2019: India have the ammunition to tackle Australia at The Oval, says Sachin TendulkarAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Morris wants fans to back battered South AfricaAlso Seeadvertisement
zoom The US Department of Justice has decided to approve the establishment of G2 Ocean, a joint venture (JV) of Switzerland-based shipping company Gearbulk and Norwegian Grieg Star.Authorities in Poland, Germany and Brazil have already approved the JV, the duo said in a statement.According to the two firms, the project is on schedule to have G2 Ocean fully operational by the end of the first half of 2017.The JV will operate a fleet of open hatch, semi-open hatch and conventional bulk vessels, with a total of over 130 ships.The parties revealed in October 2016 that 65% of the JV will be held by Gearbulk, while Grieg Star will hold the remaining 35%.The JV will be formed as an independent dry bulk shipping company headquartered in Bergen, Norway, with worldwide offices.“We anticipated such a conclusion from the authorities. But that does not mean the final approval was not received with joy. Now we roll up our sleeves and continue the hard work. Our goal is still to create a world class shipping company for the future,” Rune Birkeland, G2 Ocean’s CEO, commented.

Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio.

Preview • iPhone XS is the new $1,000 iPhone X An Echo Dot makes a fine match for any Fire edition TV, because you can use the latter to say things like, “Alexa, turn on the TV.” Right now, the 24-inch Insignia Fire TV Edition starts at just $100, while the 32-inch Toshiba Fire TV Editions is on sale for $130. Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free. The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price. Sarah Tew/CNET $999 Read Google Home Hub review The Cheapskate I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.

Enter Tidal, the only “major” service that delivers lossless audio — meaning at least on par with CD quality, if not better. Want to see (er, hear) the difference for yourself? Grab this excellent extended trial while you can. It’s just $6 for three months, and it’s good for up to six listeners. 7 See It Read the Rylo camera preview Tags 0 Amazon

George said they’ll now start construction on the Cullen Boulevard ramp.“What the Cullen Boulevard entrance ramp will do, it will provide a ramp to the newly-elevated 69 north and southbound connector, which is Spur 5 now,” added George.TxDOT expects to complete the entire project by spring of next year. – / 6 Listen Share
Toymakers should avoid gender- labelling toys, and create items for both boys and girls in a wide range of colours, say scientists who found that children’s perception of what is appropriate for a gender can be easily manipulated. The study is also the first to show that a boy’s liking of blue and a girl’s preference for pink is not just a Western construct, but is also a phenomenon in urban Asian societies.The researchers from University of Hong Kong recruited 129 Chinese children aged between five and seven from two kindergartens in Hong Kong. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfFirst they assessed the children’s preference for pink versus blue by showing them cards and toys in these colours.Then the children were presented with yellow and green cards and toys.They were randomly divided into so-called label and no-label groups.Children in the no-label group were presented with coloured cards and toys which had no reference to a specific gender and these children consequently expressed no preference for a specific colour.However, preschoolers in the label group were told that yellow was a girl’s colour and green a boys’ colour, and corresponding gender differences emerged in the choices they made. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive Apart from randomly assigning children to these two groups, the children’s pre-existing preferences for yellow and green were statistically controlled, so the resulting difference between the groups speaks strongly to a causal effect of the gender labels.According to the researchers, the gender differences between preferred colours in children is noteworthy because it is so much more prominent than most other psychological differences between the sexes. “Our findings support the notion that gender-typed liking for pink versus blue is a particularly salient gender difference,” said Sui Ping Yeung from University of Hong Kong.”Moreover, our findings reveal that gender differences could be created merely by applying gender labels,” Yeung said.The findings, published in the journal Sex Role support previous research that highlighted the strong influence that gender labels such as “for boys” or “for girls” might have. Further, the observations are in line with gender schema theory that says that once children have learnt a specific gender identity, their behaviour will be guided by the standards set as being appropriate for their specific sex.These will guide them later in life on how they interact and adapt to their surroundings, for instance, when taking on chores around the house, such as cooking, cleaning or repairing things.
