Purpose Pitch Outlives Purpose?

first_imgNEW YORK  — Somewhere in the past few decades, pitching high and inside has become an offense, a violation of baseball etiquette if not the rules.Batters with multimillion-dollar contracts go ballistic when a cowhide-covered sphere of roughly 5 ounces and 9-inch circumference whizzes by their whiskers, even if they get up unscathed.So when the Mets’ Noah Syndergaard opened Game 3 of the World Series with a 97 mph pitch above the head of Alcides Escobar, sending the Kansas City leadoff hitter sprawling on his butt, the Royals screamed as if the rookie pitcher had turned into a mound version of Dirty Harry.Jun 9, 2015; New York City, NY, USA; New York Mets starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard (34) throws to first base to check on a runner against the San Francisco Giants during the second inning of a baseball game at Citi Field. Mandatory Credit: Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports“You watch guys growing up, Roger Clemens and Pedro Martinez, all those epic battles that they had, and I think the time has changed,” fellow Mets pitcher Matt Harvey said Saturday. “But this is part of baseball. As a power pitcher you’ve got to keep guys uncomfortable and off balance. When there’s a time to do it, there’s a time to do it.”With the Mets trailing 2-0 in the Series, Syndergaard said ahead of his outing that he had “a few tricks” up his sleeve for Escobar, who hit an inside-the-park home run on Harvey’s first pitch of the opener and flied out on Jacob deGrom’s opening pitch of Game 2. After Syndergaard’s opening offering, Escobar wound up sitting in the batter’s box, one leg on each side of home plate, as teammates shouted from the dugout with words that make parents blush.“I think it set a tone that, hey, look, we’re in this World Series, too, and we’re going to get after it,” Mets manager Terry Collins said.Escobar struck out, and the Mets went on to win 9-3. The day after Syndergaard caused a stir, Collins made it seem like it was Noah’s lark. He said he did not have advance knowledge of the plan. The manager said it showed “he’s not afraid of anybody” and called pitching inside “a lost art,” but he also admitted “guys take a huge offense to it, because you’ll miss time” if the batter actually does get it.“But I still think it’s got to be part of the game,” Collins said.Escobar thought Syndergaard could have backed him off by throwing low and inside.“You don’t need to throw to my head,” he said.If anything, perhaps Syndergaard was guilty of advertising his intentions.“No one in here is stupid. We know what he said,” Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer said.Major League Baseball did not appear to be investigating Syndergaard for possible discipline. But the words and action of the 23-year-old could lead to retaliation.“I didn’t expect him to throw a strike, but I didn’t expect him to throw it under his chin, either,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “But we’ve got a few tricks up our sleeves, too.”Fueled by adrenaline and testosterone, batters and pitchers have been battling for more than a century and a half. Umbrage has increased as the average salary has risen to about the $4 million mark, when an injury can have huge financial implications.“You can end a player’s career by not intentionally hitting them in the head,” Yost said.He viewed the chest as the contemporary dividing line for acceptability.“You’ve seen us at times with Daniel Murphy pitch in on him, but it’s never been up and in,” Yost said. “It was an acceptable thing to be able to move guys away, up top. And we’ve kind of gotten away from that now.”Back in 1969, when the Cubs played a key September series at Shea Stadium, Chicago pitcher Bill Hands knocked down Mets leadoff hitter Tommy Agee. Jerry Koosman hit Ron Santo leading off the second, breaking a hand. In the 1980 World Series, Philadelphia’s Dickie Noles threw under the chin of Kansas City’s George Brett, thought by some to be a pitch that sparked the Phillies to the first title for a franchise that started play in 1883.Collins was asked about those pitches and mentioned that fines from the league office had increased.“Once in a while you’ve got to take a stance, you have to protect your teammates and things happen,” Collins said “That’s just been part of the game for a hundred years.”RONALD BLUM, AP Baseball Writer TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Nokia 6.1 Plus gets Rs 1000 discount in festive sale, so is it now best phone under Rs 15,000?

first_imgFlipkart will be conducting its Big Billion Days sale from October 10 to October 14. During this period, you can expect to see tons of offers and discounts of products across various categories. A lot of smartphones are going to be on sale, some of which are going to see some attractive discounts as well. Notably, the popular Nokia 6.1 Plus will see a discount of Rs 1,000, which means it will be available at Rs 14,999.The Nokia 6.1 Plus has seen a pretty great response so far, but its discounted price looks more attractive than ever. In this segment, the phone goes up against the Realme 2 Pro (which will also go on sale on October 11), Xiaomi Mi A2 and Motorola One Power to name a few. For a limited time, the Nokia 6.1 Plus will be available at under Rs 15,000 which sounds great, but does this make it the best phone under Rs 15,000? Let’s find out.Premium design all aroundBoth the Nokia 6.1 Plus and Realme 2 Pro are stunning smartphones at affordable prices. These are among the best-looking phones you can buy at around Rs 15,000 so when it comes to design there is really no wrong choice between the two. Both the phones bring edge-to-edge displays with notches, but there’s a slight difference. The notch on the Nokia 6.1 Plus is wide and closer to an iPhone X-like notch while the Realme 2 Pro offers a waterdrop notch like the Oppo F9 Pro. This means the notch on the Realme 2 Pro is tinier and less intrusive than the one on the Nokia 6.1 Plus.advertisementYou also get a taller 6.3-inch FHD+ display with the Realme 2 Pro compared to the 5.8-inch FHD+ display on the Nokia 6.1 Plus. The latter is more compact and handy, but if you want an immersive display, the Realme 2 Pro is a better choice. You also have the Motorola One Power that also comes with a bigger display compared to the Nokia 6.1 Plus, but the phone is quite bulky thanks to its 5,000mAh battery. As for the rest of the design, the Realme 2 Pro comes with an attractive dewdrop arc panel on the back that nicely curves around the sides. Yet this is a plastic panel which makes it more prone to scratches and wear. The Nokia 6.1 Plus, on the other hand, offers Gorilla Glass 3 protection on the back, which makes it more premium and durable.The Motorola One Power, which is another Android One phone priced at Rs 15,999, offers similar hardware, but doesn’t impress greatly with design. It sports a notched display, but the metal rear panel is somewhat uninspiring when compared to the Nokia 6.1 Plus. The same can also be said for Xiaomi’s Mi A2 as well.Powerful specs, but advantage goes to RealmeWhen it comes to hardware, the Realme 2 Pro is hard to beat right now by any mid-range smartphone. At Rs 13,990, this is the cheapest phone with a powerful Snapdragon 660 chipset. This is coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. The Nokia 6.1 Plus offers a Snapdragon 636 chipset, which is also pretty powerful, but just a little short of the SD660.The Realme 2 Pro also comes with some impressive 16MP cameras all around. The cameras offer detailed and crisp photographs in good lighting and also manage to hold well in low-light. The Nokia 6.1 Plus isn’t the best camera phone in this segment, but it manages to offer good, detailed photos with true-to-life colours in good light. The cameras suffer in low-light, giving the Realme 2 Pro and edge.The Realme 2 Pro also offers an impressive 3,500mAh battery, which will take the phone through two days on average usage. In comparison, the 3,060mAh battery inside the Nokia 6.1 Plus is good for a full day but not more than that. It delivers a decent battery life, but falls short in front of the Realme 2 Pro. However, when it comes to battery life, the Motorola One Power reigns supreme in this segment with a whopping 5,000mAh capacity. This comes at a cost of design, but for consumers who need a good battery phone, the Nokia 6.1 Plus may not rank high on the list.Android One trumps ColorOSArguably the biggest advantage that the Nokia 6.1 Plus has over the Realme 2 Pro is with regards to software. The Nokia 6.1 Plus is an Android One phone with stock, bloatware-free Android 8.1 Oreo. This is as pure of an Android phone as you can get, and this also means it is well optimised so the phone offers a consistently smooth user experience. The software is also optimised for the notch so it never intrudes the content. This is also why the Motorola One Power gets an edge over the Realme 2 Pro. Notably, the Nokia 6.1 Plus will also be the first among its competition to be updated to Android 9 Pie in October.advertisementThe Realme 2 Pro ships with Android 8.1 Oreo with Oppo’s ColorOS 5.2 on top. Software is the only thing that underpins what is otherwise an exceptional smartphone. ColorOS looks quite dated, comes with some bloatware and is not as smooth as stock Android. It also isn’t optimised for the notch, so even the tiny dewdrop notch is visible when it intrudes content.Both the Nokia 6.1 Plus and Realme 2 Pro are exceptional affordable mid-range phones. They both come with attractive designs and some powerful specs. The Nokia 6.1 Plus is for consumers looking for a compact, lightweight phone with pure Android software, while the Realme 2 Pro is for consumers looking for raw power at an affordable price. It also offers a more immersive display and a better battery life.The Nokia 6.1 Plus is a complete package that won’t let you down. The phone delivers on design, display, performance and software, which means it ticks mostly all the boxes. The few areas that it looks a bit wanting is with regards to cameras and battery life, but not by much. At under Rs 15,000, the Nokia 6.1 Plus is definitely one of the better options out there and should be worth considering during the Flipkart Big Billion Days sale.last_img read more

Feel sorry for Mithali Raj, you cannot drop someone like her: Sunil Gavaskar

first_imgSunil Gavaskar said he empathised with Mithali Raj who was left out of India’s playing XI against England in the semi-final of the Women’s World T20.The decision to omit India’s highest scorer in women’s T20 Internationals created a furor even after skipper Harmanpreet Kaur justified the decision and said she had no regrets after India lost to England by eight wickets in Antigua last week.Hours after the semi-final, Mithali’s manager lashed out at Harmanpreet Kaur in a tweet which was later deleted. “Unfortunately @BCCIWomen believes in politics not sport. After witnessing what @M_Raj03 ‘s experience could do in IndvIre it’s shocking that they went with what pleases @ImHarmanpreet -a manipulative, lying, immature, undeserving captain,” Annisha Gupta had tweeted.Gavaskar said he did not agree with the team management reason to drop Mithali from the team for a knockout game.”I feel sorry for Mithali. She has a very good point.. She has served Indian cricket for 20 years. She scored runs.. she won player of the match in both matches (she played at the World T20),” Gavaskar told India Today.”She was injured for one game but fit for the next game. Just convert this situation into the men’s game. If you had a Virat Kohli who was injured for one game and then is fit for the knockout, will you leave him out? You have to pick your best player for the knockouts.. You needed the experience and expertise of Mithali Raj,” Gavaskar said.Even as reports of a rift in the dressing-room began to emerge, Mithali and Harmanpreet met with BCCI CEO Rahul Johri after returning to India.advertisementSoon after, Mithali wrote a letter to BCCI accusing coach Ramesh Powar of humiliating her. Mithali said realised she would not play the semi-final only moments before the toss.”It is when Harman walked to toss, he came running to me and said that they were going with the same team. It meant the whole team knew who were playing and it was just me who was not aware. Also, when the team was getting ready to field in the second innings, it is customary that even those who aren’t playing should join the team huddle as it has always been the norm in our team. But to insult me that day, he sent a word through the manager to tell that it was only the playing eleven that can join in the huddle and the rest can go back to dugout making us feel as outcasts. It was worrying and insulting because the coach was out to destroy and humiliate me,” Mithali wrote in her letter to BCCI. “I couldn’t control my tears having given it my all for 20 years. It seemed my efforts had no value.”Gavaskar said it was difficult to comment on Powar’s role from a distance but said he did not agree with the Indian team’s reason behind Mithali’s omission.”What happened with Powar.. is very difficult to comment on that from here. It’s difficult to accept whatever the reason was.. They said they wanted to stick with the same team, I don’t think that’s a good enough excuse. You can’t drop someone like Mithali Raj,” he said.Also Read | Mithali Raj has got good reasons to be peeved: Farokh EngineerAlso Read | Amitabh Chaudhary stunned, Mithali Raj letter to BCCI not shared with secretaryAlso Read | Will Mithali Raj retire from T20Is after World T20 fiasco in West Indies?Also Read | Ganguly relates to Mithali’s omission from World T20 semi-final: ‘Welcome to the group’Also Watch –last_img read more

It was going to be close,’ Doherty said.Granata will have a similar team to previous years, which includes Doherty, Peter Doherty, Chris and Tim Ward, Kyle Cochrane and Jared Robinson.They also have a new player in Mudgee Dragons first division flyer Andrew Laurie.‘He will be pretty handy for us,’ Doherty said of Laurie.Most of the players in the Granata team have played alongside each other for nearly 10 years.Doherty believes that has played a significant role in their success.‘We have been pretty much the same team since we started in the under 13s,’ he said.The Mudgee touch football competition will begin on Tuesday night at Glen Willow.This year, the committee decided to play games for the summer competition only one night a week, instead of two, which has been the case for most seasons.Doherty likes the idea of only having games on one night a week as it will tighten the competition up.‘It will be a stronger competition being [on] one night, teams will be a lot more tough.‘[The one night] will help out our representative side for Port Macquarie. Instead of playing on Thursday night we can train. That should help the rep side.Caboolture News; 10/19/2011St Columban’s College Touch Football representatives were absolutely chuffed to claim two trophies at the Queensland All Schools tournament earlier this month. The school faced off in the middle of 300 teams participating in the four-day competition at Whites Hill, Brisbane. More than 3500 students took part in more than 900 games. While most were from Queensland some travelled from far and wide to assure their mark was made. “Historically we’ve seen people from all over the globe travel to compete,” All Schools Touch convener Peter Bell said. Fortunately the competition was spared the effect of rain which caused problems last year. The odd drizzle caused no hassle. For the open girls Cavendish Road State High School were the side to beat as the defending champions, however St Columban’s surprised the masses with a 6-2 shake up in the grand final. “The defending champs were beat by the better team on the day,” said Mr Bell.“Our kids were working hard organising the event and had to put in a little extra.”All Schools encourages students to experience events management first hand by organising and running the competition. The open boys saw Keebra Park take out Emmaus 5-4. St Columban’s once again shone in the junior mixed match again head to head with Cavendish Road. However the side persisted and achieved a 2-0 win. While Bell called Cavendish home base he could not deny Columban’s performance during the competition. The Queensland All Schools event has achieved world recognition in school sport, but Mr Bell said Touch Football needed more recognition in its own backyard, with other sports often overshadowing it.

We’d score and we couldn’t keep them out,” Upton said.“It was a pretty good game. It was good for the crowd but not good for the players,” she said laughing.It was a big weekend for CQ’s open men, open mixed, over-35 men and over-50 men at the state titles.Despite heading away with a youthful open men’s line-up, CQ’s young guns, led by Rockhampton’s Australian star Gavin Shuker, made it all the way to the grand final before going down 10-7 to North Queensland.“They really stepped up and it was really good watching them,” said Upton, also CQ Touch’s administration officer.The hard luck story of the championships was CQ’s open mixed team, who narrowly missed out on a place in the gold medal game on a count back.With Rockhampton’s Australian representative Daniel Withers leading the charge, the open mixed team finished equal on points with Brisbane City and North Queensland for a place in the grand final against the Gold Coast Sharks.The CQ side did collect a consolation prize after Withers was named male mixed player of the series.CQ’s over-35 men and over-50 men enjoyed mixed results at the championships, with the region’s representative teams now turning their attention to next year’s National Touch League (NTL) at Port Macquarie in March.Teams To Touchdown For Carnival Rockhampton Morning Bulletin 28/10/2011Central Queensland’s Touch Football stars of the future will be on show in Rockhampton next weekend.More than 1000 junior touch players, along with their coaches, parents and supporters, will converge on Cyril Connell Fields on November 5-6 to contest this year’s Red Rooster Junior Touch Carnival.A record 85 teams from Emerald, Biloela, Blackwater, Gladstone, Cap Coast and teams from Rockhampton’s local competition will compete in the annual event in boys’ and girls’ divisions from under-10 to U17.The increase in team numbers each year has forced the tournament to be scheduled over two days for the first time this year.Cap Coast Touch, awaiting the completion of its own fields, has nominated 17 teams in the carnival and is evidence of the growth of the sport for juniors on the coast and the region.Games start at 10am on the Saturday and 8.30am on Sunday.Game On: Cyclones Take Out State Touch TitlesTownsville Bulletin 28/10/2011North Queensland’s 2012 open men’s touch football team can boast writing their own piece of history.The NQ Tropical Cyclones last weekend became the first from the region to clinch the State Touch Championships crown in Brisbane, defying the odds and even their own expectations to do it. “There’s always that hope, but never did I, as coach, think we were going to win it,’’ mentor Col Beckitt said of his young team. “But now I think it’s really put North Queensland touch on the map. We always had the talent, it was just a matter…of getting the best out of them. “It’s unreal, it’s a good feeling.’’ Perhaps propelled by the enthusiasm and fearlessness of youth, the Cyclones lost just one of six games across the weekend. But they had to work hard for it in the final. Trailing 2-1 to Central Queensland at halftime, they played attack-first footy and blew their opponents away to win 10-7. Beckitt believed the team was set up for a big future. Their next challenge will be at the national titles next year.Young Guns Close To FinalNorthern Territory News 28/10/2011THE Territory under-13 Touch Football side is just one win away from a grand final berth at the Australian Schools Touch Championships in Coffs Harbour after a stunning 6-4 win over powerhouse NSW yesterday. The young guns will play NSW again this morning for second place and the winner takes on Queensland for the gold medal this afternoon. A collective team effort got the Territorians over the line but the standout players have been captain Zane Clarke-Edwards, from Alice Springs, and Brandan Parfitt and Joel Rousell, from Darwin. The NT under-13 girls are placed third at the end of the round games while the under-15 boys and girls sides play for 7th and 8th today.College Gets A Touch Of SuccessDalby Herald 25/10/2011Last weekend in Brisbane, Our Lady of the Southern Cross College sent three teams to the Queensland All Schools Touch Football Championships.In total the college played 19 games, with 13 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses.The under-15 Boys Team won their pool and made it through to the final 16 on Sunday where they lost 5-4 in a drop off against Emmaus College, Rockhampton.The U15 Girls Team finished second in the their pool but also made it through to the final 16 on Sunday were they lost 2-1 against Palm Beach Currumbin.The Open Mixed Team finished second in their pool but didn’t qualify for the finals.All students enjoyed the experience and are looking forward to the 2012 Carnival. Keebra Use Deft Touch To Extend Winning ReignGold Coast Bulletin 25/10/2011Keebra Park State High School’s open boys’ touch football team has been identified as one of the best in the state. It comes after the team topped the All Schools Touch Football Competition, at the Whites Hill touch football complex, Brisbane, from October 6 to 9. Despite having taken out the top spot at the competition for the past three years, the team admitted this year’s competition was tough, winning after a close five-tries-to-four victory over Rockhampton’s Emmaus College. A semi-final win over Bundaberg State High School set up the grand final encounter against Emmaus College, with Keebra’s determination in defence paving the way for the win. Team member Manaia Rudolph said he was proud the group had been able to continue the school’s winning streak. “We have a good team spirit here at Keebra Park and what we lacked in experience we made up for with enthusiasm,” he said. “It was awesome playing against the best schools in Queensland and good to keep the tradition going.”Coach Ben Woolf praised his team’s spirit and attitude, saying he always knew they had it in them to win. “Some of these boys hadn’t played much touch football before but had the basic skills from their rugby league,” he said. “Once we worked on a bit of structure, I knew they had a chance and they stuck to the game plan and came up trumps.” Touch And Ready To Go For TitlesCoffs Coast Advocate 22/10/2011The annual School Sport Australia Touch Football Championships begin in Coffs Harbour on Monday.Boys and girls in the under-12 and under-15 year age divisions will battle for supremacy over five days of competition.BCU International Stadium and Coffs Coast Sports and Leisure Park will be the venue and play will start on Monday following the opening ceremony at 9am.Tuesday’s and Thursday’s matches will start at 8am with Wednesday a recreational day. Play will be continuous on four fields.To assist younger players to develop their touch football ability, a two-hour skills and coaching activity will be held for the 12-years players on Tuesday starting at 2.45pm, conducted by NSW Touch in conjunction with visiting team management.Highly accredited referees Steve Lyons and Mike Franks will coordinate the whistle-blowing brigade.During the visit the students, coaches, managers and teachers will taste the hospitality of the Coffs Coast with visits arranged to the Big Banana and Pet Porpoise Pool.Peta To Take On Touch Footy’s Big Guns Without FearGympie Times 21/10/2011Even though young Touch Football player Peta Dray does not know what to expect when she takes on the under-20s state competition today, she is confident.Peta, 17, is in Year 12 at St Patrick’s College and is competing with an open women’s team in the new under-20 state competition.From that competition, she said, a Queensland “State of Origin” side would be picked.Her first game is today at 12noon.“I’ve never played in the under 20s before. I normally play in the under 18 comp,” she said.“I don’t really get excited or nervous until the hooter goes on field, but I’m looking forward to it,” she said yesterday.Playing against older women was a step up in competition. “I’m pretty confident. I just go into it like it’s any other game.”Peta has been playing touch football since she was eight years old and has been selected in the state team once before.“I hope I get in again. I’ll probably play until I die or can’t run anymore.”Peta trains four days a week, playing touch football Monday, Wednesday and Friday and training on Sunday.For 23 Years David Weekes Has Been VolunteeringWestern Advocate 21/10/2011For 23 years David Weekes has been volunteering with the Bathurst Touch Football Association and he will be back on Monday when the organisation steps up its workload for the start of its 2011 season. This season 100 teams and more than 1000 players will be playing at Learmonth Park, the home of touch football in Bathurst. Mr Weekes has been treasurer of the touch association since 1989 and has seen the game venues move around, but he is happy the sport has finally found a home. “When I started out touch was at Morse Park,” he said. “It went to Saint Pat’s for a few years, then the university for one season and then to Learmonth Park, near the hockey fields.” “Now we are on the far side of the hockey fields and have our own clubhouse. “This will be our second season there and my dream and vision for the sport has been recognised. “It is great we have our own sporting facility.” David retired from playing, but pulled the boots back on to play with his children. “I used to play a lot, in the over 30s, but now I just enjoy running around with the kids,” he said. “Touch is such a great sport as it is social and it is the thrills without the spills and being over 30 that is important.” Not only does David do the treasury, he is a referee co-ordinator and junior co-ordinator.

Victorian coach Chris Pain said the representatives from the Macedon Ranges Touch Football Competition had done well to compete at the elite level. “They have just been fantastic,” he said. “They have been a dedicated bunch, which has been really good. “Essentially that is what it boils down to.

Lawmakers reach tentative budget deal

first_imgOLYMPIA — Washington lawmakers reached a tentative agreement on a new state budget Monday and prepared to hurriedly approve the spending plan before their overtime session in Olympia comes to an end.Leaders in the Senate and House said they won’t unveil specifics of the compromise until today and hope to pass it through both chambers by Wednesday. That will leave many lawmakers and the public with a chance to briefly review the massive plan that seeks to close the state’s $5 billion budget shortfall.Sen. Ed Murray, a Democrat from Seattle who served as one of the lead negotiators, noted that lawmakers have already had many previous budget hearings and that the new deal offers nothing new. “The public has seen every single item in this budget,” Murray said. “There are no surprises.” House Republican Leader Richard DeBolt said one day probably wasn’t enough time for the public to fully assess the plan. But he wasn’t going to stand in the way of its passage and force lawmakers to remain in Olympia longer.The Legislature wasn’t able to reach a deal on the spending plan when its regular session ended a month ago, leading Democratic Gov. Chris Gregoire to call them back for 30 days of overtime. Negotiators have been grappling over a series of challenging choices: whether to cut pay for teachers, how to save money in higher education and which social programs could do with less money.last_img read more

Forest department set to brand Sunderbans honey

first_imgKolkata: The state Forest department is all set to brand honey found in the Sunderbans and make it more popular and readily available to more and more people in the state. The responsibility of developing the branding has been taken up by the West Bengal Forest Development Corporation Ltd (WBFDCL).”A large section of people in the Sunderbans earn their bread through collection and sale of honey. People have a belief that honey collected from bee hives in the forest are more nourishing. If we can create a branding following proper procedure then it will surely boost the income prospect of those associated with the honey business,” a senior official of WBFDCL said. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeThe department will train the villagers about the modern and scientific process of manufacture of quality honey. The finished product will then be tested by Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) who will give certification. “These are essential parameters for creating a proper branding,” the official added. The WBFDCL will video the entire process of the honey production and make arrangements for showcasing it in different resorts both in South and North Bengal.

It may be mentioned that the state Forest department has already started taking steps to stop villagers from the Sunderbans venture into the core area of the forest for collection of honey, by encouraging the villagers to take up apiculture right in their native villages. People, roaming around in deep forests for honey collection or fishing in the creeks of the river, are very often mauled by tigers. As per estimates of researchers every year, around 50 fishermen or honey collectors are killed in tiger attacks. “We want to bring down the number of human deaths due to tiger attack to zero. Keeping this in mind, we will help villagers in taking up apiculture in all possible forms right in the villages so that they do not need to venture into deep forests. We are taking assistance from experts of Bidhan Chandra Krishi Viswavidyalaya,” said a senior official of the Forest department.last_img read more

Election Commission showcauses Dilip Ghosh

first_imgKolkata: The Election Commission (EC) has served a show-cause notice to BJP state president Dilip Ghosh for his controversial remarks regarding the Commission itself.The office of the Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) in the state has sought a clarification as to why he made such an obnoxious comment regarding the EC. The remarks came from Ghosh two days ago after the election personnel removed a banner that was allegedly carrying his photograph and Ram Navami greetings. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataWhile talking to a private television channel, Ghosh said he would have taken off the trousers of the election personnel who had dared to remove the banner, had he been present there at the spot. The CEO office has taken a strong objection to Ghosh’s remarks. According to a senior official at the CEO office, Ghosh’s statements were derogatory in nature and hence, he has been asked to clarify why he made such a statement. Ghosh had allegedly used Ram Navami greetings and posters during his election rally flouting the Model Code of Conduct (MCC) set up by the Election Commission of India. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in stateThe state has once again witnessed processions where weapons were brandished during the Ram Navami celebrations this year. After his controversial remarks, Ghosh had, however, claimed that he did not flout any MCC violation by putting a banner greeting people on the occasion of Ram Navami. He went ahead and added that he is entitled to put out a banner as he has been a local MLA. The Commission, however, seems unmoved and has show-caused him. The CEO office wanted to know from Ghosh if he has conducted an election rally using various posters of Ram Navami or if any weapons were used during the rally. Earlier, Ghosh was seen displaying swords and maces during Ram Navami celebrations in Kharagpur. The Kolkata Police along with its state counterpart said no political, apolitical and religious organisations have been allowed to carry out rallies with arms. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, while addressing a rally in Siliguri, criticised the BJP for taking out armed rallies and said they were trying to “sell religion” for political advantage. “Whose throat do you want to slit with swords? Whose head do you want to smash with the mace,” she had questioned while addressing a rally in favour of party’s Darjeeling Lok Sabha seat candidate Amar Singh Rai.last_img read more
