West Indies board ignores RCB star Chris Gayle for series against India

first_imgAt odds with the West Indies Cricket Board, explosive batsman Chris Gayle was on Monday left out of the squads announced for the lone Twenty20 and the first two one-dayers against India starting June 4.”Chris Gayle will not be considered for selection to the West Indies team before an intended meeting with himself, the Selection Committee, the WICB Management and the West Indies Team Management,” the WICB said in a statement.”The Selection Committee views this meeting as necessary as a result of Gayle’s comments in a widely publicised radio interview in Jamaica,” it added.Gayle, who was recently ignored for the series against Pakistan, has had a massive war of words with the WICB after claiming that he was left to fend for himself during recent injury problems.An angry WICB retorted by saying that the batsman was well looked after and it was he who kept the Board uninformed while flying out to India to play in the IPL for eventual runners-up Royal Challengers Bangalore.The 31-year-old Gayle was the star of the recently-concluded Twenty20 league finishing as the top-scorer with 608 runs, including a couple of hundreds, but even this destructive form could not fetch him a place in the two national sides to be captained by Darren Sammy.Pacer Kemar Roach has been rested for the lone Twenty20 and the first two ODIs in Trinidad. Roach will, however, be available for selection for the third ODI of the five-match series.”It is expected that other players with heavy workloads will also be rested and rotated from time to time throughout the West Indies v India Series 2011 and moving forward,” the WICB said.advertisementThe explosive batting duo of Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard were declared “not eligible to represent the West Indies in Twenty20 format as they did not take part in the last edition of the Caribbean Twenty20″.But both of them have made the squad for the first two ODIs.”The WICB Selection Criteria outline that for a player to be eligible for selection to the West Indies team he must participate in the corresponding format of the game at the regional level,” the Board explained.Although he has been allowed to return to “low intensity cricket in Trinidad”, young batsman Adrian Barath has been left out of the two squads as he is still undergoing rehabilitation.”A decision on his return to international cricket will be taken following the assessment and it is hoped he will be available for the Digicel Test Series  West Indies v India,” the WICB said.Pacer Jerome Taylor, who like Gayle accused WICB of leaving him in a lurch during injury problems, has also been left out of the squad.”Jerome Taylor is required to play a full season of regional cricket in order to prove his fitness to compete adequately at the international level before being considered for selection,” the WICB stated.The 12-man Twenty20 group has uncapped left-arm seamer Krishmar Santokie as the lone new face. But apart from the 26-year-old Santokie, there is no other change in the side that beat Pakistan in St Lucia in April.Twenty20 squad: Darren Sammy (capt), Lendl Simmons, Andre Fletcher (wk), Darren Bravo, Marlon Samuels, Danza Hyatt, Christopher Barnwell, Andre Russell, Ashley Nurse, Devendra Bishoo, Ravi Rampaul, Krishmar Santokie.Squad for first two ODIs: Darren Sammy (capt), Lendl Simmons, Kirk Edwards, Darren Bravo, Marlon Samuels, Ramnaresh Sarwan, Dwayne Bravo, Kieron Pollard, Carlton Baugh (wk), Andre Russell, Anthony Martin, Devendra Bishoo, Ravi Rampaul.-  With PTI inputslast_img read more

Saudi oil minister says market should handle low prices

Saudi Arabia’s Minister of Petroleum & Mineral Resources Ali Al-Naimi speaks at the annual IHS CERAWeek global energy conference Tuesday, Feb. 23, 2016, in Houston. (AP Photo/Pat Sullivan) Saudi oil minister says market should handle low prices by David Koenig, The Associated Press Posted Feb 23, 2016 9:35 am MDT Last Updated Feb 23, 2016 at 2:01 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email HOUSTON – Saudi Arabia’s oil minister said Tuesday that production cuts to boost oil prices won’t work, and that instead the market should be allowed to work even if that forces some operators out of business.Ali Al-Naimi said production cuts by big, low-cost producers like Saudi Arabia would amount to subsidizing higher-cost ones — an apparent reference to U.S. shale oil drillers.Booming U.S. production effectively ended oil trades at more than $100 per barrel that were taking place less than two years ago. A barrel of U.S. crude is now hovering around $30, a price at which many shale operators are assumed to be losing money.“The producers of these high-cost barrels must find a way to lower their costs, borrow cash or liquidate,” Naimi said. “It sounds harsh, and unfortunately it is, but it is the more efficient way to rebalance markets.”Naimi disputed a common view in the industry: that Saudi Arabia has kept pumping oil to protect its market share and undercut shale producers. “We have not declared war on shale or on production from any given country or company,” he said.Naimi spoke at a gathering of global energy leaders in Houston.The price of benchmark U.S. crude fell Tuesday by nearly 5 per cent to $31.81 a barrel. Brent crude, used to price oil internationally, dropped $1.36 to $33.31 a barrel in London.Just a day earlier, oil prices surged after the International Energy Agency predicted that oil supply and demand would balance next year because of a steep drop in new drilling, namely in the U.S. The group’s executive director, Fatih Birol, predicted that crude would more than double to $80 a barrel by 2020.Shale and other new sources attracted by years of high oil prices pushed the supply of oil much higher than global demand, leading to the sharp drop in crude prices since mid-2014.OPEC decided in late 2014 that it would not cut production to prop up prices, and Naimi echoed OPEC’s thinking. “Cutting low-cost production to subsidize higher-cost supplies only delays an inevitable reckoning,” he said.Analysts expect more U.S. shale operators will fail unless prices rise. Mark Papa, now an investment firm executive and the former CEO of EOG Resources, an early shale-gas producer, said the shale boom created many new companies. In the next year or so there will be “bodies all over the place — a lot of bankruptcies,” and drillers who survive will emerge weaker, he said.Others say that it might not take much of a rally in oil prices for shale drillers to thrive.Vance Scott, an Ernst & Young consultant to oil and gas companies, said shale operators are continuing to cut costs and can squeeze subcontractors more and improve efficiency with technological advances in drilling.“They could make a go at $40 and maybe even lower” depending on the field, Scott said. “They will innovate.”While Naimi rejected production cuts as politically unworkable, he endorsed a freeze on production at current levels if major oil-producing countries go along. The freeze idea, floated last week by Saudi Arabia, Russia, Venezuela and Qatar, would be a more gradual path to higher oil prices, but it faces uncertain prospects. Iran, just coming off international sanctions, wants to boost its production.“If a freeze even gets done it really does not accelerate the rebalancing of the global market, especially with Iran not participating,” said Dominick Chirichella, an analyst with the Energy Management Institute. Matching supply to demand would still linger “well into 2017,” he said.The 81-year-old Naimi, who joined Aramco, the old Arabian American Oil Co., as an office boy in 1947, said he had seen oil prices swing from $2 to $147 a barrel. The current price slump, which has led to layoffs across the U.S. oil industry, is just another of oil’s inevitable boom-and-bust cycles, he said.“It is going to end,” Naimi said. “When, I don’t know, but it will end.”?z?????????????????????????????????y read more

Police hunt kidnapper freed from prison by mistake

first_imgThese incidents are rare and the vast majority are returned to custody very quicklyMinistry of Justice Ireson was jailed for 10 years in May 2011 for offences of kidnap and wounding.Police say that if sighted he should not be approached.”I can confirm that Ireson was released from court by error,” a Gloucestershire Constabulary spokesman said.It is understood that police are not at fault and that there is a dispute between the Probation Service and the prison service over who the error lies with.It is believed that he walked free from Birmingham Crown Court after arriving there in a secure van from prison.After being found not guilty of an offence he was released in error despite the fact he still had the rest of his sentence to serve.In December last year, police issued an appeal for information on him because he had been “recalled to prison” for “breaching his license conditions”. A convicted kidnapper serving a 10-year jail term has been freed from prison by mistake, it was revealed on Tuesday.Police are appealing for anyone who knows the whereabouts of Brett Ireson, 33, from Dursley, Glos, to contact them.His release is understood to be the result of a blunder by either the probation service or the prison service.A Ministry of Justice spokesman said he could not could not give the exact reason for the mistake but such an incident was “rare”. Another appeal was issued in January this year and Crimestoppers offered a reward of up to £1,000 for information which led to locating him.Members of the public are advised not to approach him and to call police on 101 if they have information on his whereabouts.The appeal was re-issued in February, then on Thursday, November 24, police issued another appeal.He was convicted along with two other men in February 2010 and police say he has “links to Gloucester and Dursley but despite extensive inquiries he still remains at large”.Wanted posters were handed out in Matson, Gloucester, where it was believed he may be, but he has not been found.A Ministry of Justice spokesperson said: “These incidents are rare and the vast majority are returned to custody very quickly.”We thoroughly investigate each one to see what lessons can be learned, as well as working closely with the police to recapture offenders at large.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Government support for Fronditha Cares community centre

first_imgFronditha Care, a not-for profit aged care provider, will be able to create a flexible and multi-use community centre in Melbourne’s south east with the help of a $20,000 grant from the federal government.The funds will be used to purchase tables, chairs and TV screens, and will be fitted in a way that they can be adaptable to the needs of different community groups.Hotham MP Clare O’Neil visited Fronditha Care’s Support Hub in Mulgrave on Thursday and explored the area where the new centre will be built. It will house two large function rooms but will also be a multipurpose space transformable into offices or training rooms.Fronditha Care President Faye Spiteri stated the centre is needed for the Greek community in the southeastern suburbs of Melbourne.“I am sure that come the end of this year, community organisations will be able to harness the opportunity to utilise the contemporary centre for their functions, activities and meetings,” she said.CEO George Lekakis AO says the area will be extremely versatile to ensure the changing needs of the community are addressed.“Groups will be able to host large ticketed events, or just have their monthly members’ nights,” Mr Lekakis said. “It’s important to cater to all age groups, budgets, and cultures at this centre.”When presenting the grant to the organisation, Ms O’Neil stated, “Fronditha Care does amazing work in the provision of residential aged care to people in my electorate of Hotham. The residents at Fronditha Care have access to great facilities, and receive the support and care they need whilst feeling more connected with their traditional Greek culture and identity.“I hope this community grant will help make this centre a community hub that people of all ages can come and enjoy.”The community centre is scheduled to be completed by mid-2019.The grant is a part of the Stronger Communities Program which provides each of the 150 federal electorates with up to $150,000 to fund small capital projects. Each grant hopes to improve local community participation and engagement.In September 2018, the Victorian State Government gave a $250,000 grant to Fronditha Care towards the construction of the community centre.

Amazon uses video games to engage warehouse employees

Amazon uses video games to engage warehouse employees

first_imgSomething for the weekend: E-commerce organisation Amazon has tried to combat boredom by taking a leaf out of Mary Poppins’ book and turning work into a game, or more specifically, a video game.According to US newspaper The Washington Post, Amazon has implemented screens next to employees’ desks at five warehouses across the UK and US. Using these, employees can opt to play simple games, such as PicksInSpace, Mission Racer and CastleCrafter during working hours.The games utilise employees’ physical actions, for example when staff assemble orders or move items. These everyday tasks translate into virtual in-game actions; for example, the quicker an employee picks up items and places them in a box, the faster a video game car could move around a virtual track.Amazon has implemented the voluntary games to help make work more enjoyable and to encourage higher productivity, especially as staff can compete against each other for the highest scores. In one Amazon facility, managers have even taken to rewarding employees for earning high scores with ‘swag bucks’; this is an organisational currency that can be exchange for Amazon-branded merchandise, such as t-shirts and water bottles.Here at Employee Benefits, we think this it is a brilliant idea to use workplace-related actions to achieve video game high scores, especially if rewards can also be earned. We think a challenge around typing speed or tea making would see us collect the most points…last_img read more

2 Barter Books – Alnwick United Kingdom Located

first_img2. Barter Books – Alnwick, United KingdomLocated in a Victorian train station in a small village in England, this second-hand bookshop (where you can trade books as well as buy them), is one of the largest of its kind and was opened in 1991. The shop’s claim to fame is that it rediscovered the Second World War ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ posters in an old box of books and now you see that iconic slogan everywhere!

Polare Maastricht, Maastricht, NetherlandsAlthough currently closed, Polare Maastricht (formerly Selexyz Dominicanen) has been named in more than one occasion as the most beautiful bookshop in the world. Where else could you immerse yourself in books inside a cathedral with over 700 years of history? Renovated and perfectly preserved, this temple to literature was truly incredible.

Books Actually, SingaporeThis independent bookshop is worth a visit or two even if you don’t buy anything. Opened in 2005, they have become one of the most beautiful places of the city, full of nooks and crannies that excite the imagination. Photo by Longhorndave on Flickr8. The Last Bookstore – Los Angeles, United StatesThis piece of paradise is southern California’s largest independent bookshop, situated in a former bank that’s architecture has been preserved. Its marble columns and giant doors sit amongst hundreds of thousands of books. Besides attending its organised events, concerts and markets, we recommend you lose yourself in the labyrinth of dollar books. 9. Shakespeare and Co – Paris, FranceThese days, this place is as much of a tourist attraction as it is a bookshop. Next to Notre Dame Cathedral, this cramped and chaotic place (especially when it is full of tourists) is incredibly seductive. Upstairs, they house travellers who work in the book shop for a few hours each day and below is a wishing well that many throw their coins into. 11. Librería Bardón – Madrid, Spain Founded in 1947, this shop is an iconic space in the heart of the city where you can find real literary gems. Step across the threshold and smell the aroma of old books that are just waiting to be discovered. Jet2British AirwaysThomson Airways Photo by Javier Caro on Flickr 7. Ateneo Grand Splendid – Buenos Aires, ArgentinaThis is possibly the only bookshop in the world that is inside a theatre. There are rows of bookshelves between the painted dome and the original balconies – they’ve even kept the original velvet curtain. The stage has also been converted into a restaurant that has a pianist who adds a touch of music to the theatrical atmosphere. There is nowhere quite like this place. 10. Librería El Péndulo – Mexico City, MexicoThis café/bookshop managed to combine books and coffee with style – without compromising on quality. As well as browsing the shelves you can have breakfast, lunch or dinner while enjoying live music, poetry and stand-up comedy – you could easily stay here for hours. 6. Livraria Lello e Irmao – Porto, PortugalThe building itself is a work of art and is packed full of history. It was founded in 1869 and has been named one of the most beautiful book shops in the world, but is perhaps more famous for being the location of several scenes in the Harry Potter films. What is most impressive about this building is the beautiful wooden staircase and the stained-glass windows in the ceiling that reflect around the room. 12. The Bookworm – Beijing, ChinaThis is the main English bookshop in the city and it has become a centre for cultural activity. With over 16,000 titles, rooting between the shelves is a pleasure. And when you are tired you can take a break in its wonderful restaurant. 16. Bart’s Books – Ojai, California, United StatesFounded in 1964 by Richard Bartinsdale, Bart’s is one of the largest outdoor bookshops in the world and is open almost every day. Some shelves face the streets, others to a courtyard where the sun shines and customers can pay by putting money into a coin box after hours. 21. The Strand Books, New York, United StatesMaybe it’s not the most stylish bookstore in the world, but the Strand Bookstore in New York is certainly iconic. At number 828 Broadway Street in the East Village, their slogan is ’18 miles of books’ and when you arrive you will see why. It’s huge and there is a vast selection of titles (over two million). If that’s not enough, it is where Patti Smith used to work. 15. Librería AltaÏr – Barcelona, Spain The largest travel specialist in Europe and possibly one of the most beautiful bookshops too. They are located next to the university and for decades have been inspiring travellers to start their next adventure. Take a guidebook, sit on a couch underneath the ornate iron columns and let your imagination take flight.

If you go to Santorini, cool off in this idyllic location, pick up a book and be inspired for your next adventure. 18. Words on the Water, London, United KingdomWhat could be cooler than a floating bookstore? This alternative library travels between Camden Lock and London Paddington. It is an amazing place and is usually organized around cultural events, recitals and concerts. If the weather is nice, sit on the grass along the canal and leaf through one of the books. This must certainly be one of the most relaxing places in London. Photo by Aubrey Dunnuck on Flickr 4. Cook and Book – Brussels, BelgiumCook and Book is an interesting (and beautiful) combination of bookshop and restaurant. Situated in the heart of Brussels, this place is the size of a supermarket and is split into eight rooms as well as a music section, each with a different design and dining-area attached. From a vintage Fiat 500 in the cookery section, to a caravan in the travel section, to the 800 books hanging from the ceiling in the fiction section, you’ll like it so much that you won’t want to leave! 17. Livraria Da Vila, Sao Paulo, BrazilModern and sleek, this bookshop is located in a two story building that was designed by architect Isay Weinfeld.

Librería Acqua Alta – Venice, ItalyA shop like this could only exist in Venice. Among the hundreds of thousands of books there are many hidden gems, but to find them you’ll have to look inside boats, bathtubs and even a gondola (when in Venice…yes?).
