Since then, no one has presented new information to CA that casts doubt on the investigation’s findings.”Bancroft added he “lost control” of his values at Newlands.“What had become important to me was being liked, being well valued, feeling really important to my teammates,” he said.“Like I was contributing something by using sandpaper on a cricket ball.”Sandpaper gate Scandal: Smith and Warner have made successful returns to international cricketSmith and Warner have successfully returned to the upper echelon of international cricket, each winning an Allan Border Medal since their time in exile.Bancroft, who did open for Australia again but was dropped after playing two Ashes Tests in 2019, has not fared as well.

first_imgMore controversy in World Cup 2019 qualifying process as Tahiti field ineligible players and are replaced by Cook Islands The winner of this year’s Africa Gold Cup – a tournament featuring Kenya, Morocco, Namibia, Tunisia, Uganda and Zimbabwe – will go into Pool B while the runner-up heads into the repechage event.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Cook Islands replace Tahiti in Rugby World Cup 2019 qualifyingCook Islands have replaced Tahiti in the next round of the Rugby World Cup 2019 qualification process after Tahiti were found to have fielded ineligible players.The two countries met in a RWC 2019 qualifier on 4 August 2017 in Rarotonga and Tahiti won 13-9 to move through to the next stage – a home-and-away play-off against the winners of the Asia Rugby Championship on 30 June and 7 July this year.However, World Rugby have since investigated claims that Tahiti fielded ineligible players and they have been found guilty of breaching Regulation 8. The match result has been overturned with Cook Islands determined as the winner.So Cook Islands will now take part in that Asia-Oceania play-off – the winner of which will progress to the four-team repechage tournament later in the year that will determine the final qualifier for Japan 2019.Related: World Cup 2019 fixturesThe case, which was heard by independent judicial officer Tim Gresson of New Zealand, centred around Tahiti players Guillaume Brouqui and Andoni Jimenez.To represent the 15-a-side Test team of a country, players must have been born there, have a parent or grandparent who was born there, or have lived there for 36 consecutive months immediately preceding the time of playing.Both Brouqui and Jimenez were born in France, and there is no evidence that their parents or grandparents were born in Tahiti.Champions: New Zealand have won the last two World Cups (Getty Images)The two players first represented Tahiti on 6 July 2013 in an Oceania Cup match, but the evidence presented to World Rugby showed that Jimenez had only been residing in the country for 24 months at that point.center_img Brouqui had returned to France from Tahiti in early 2012 to receive treatment for a back injury and so Gresson stated: “I am comfortably satisfied it has been established he did not complete 36 months of residence immediately preceding when he first represented the union.”As both players were ineligible to represent Tahiti when they first played for them, they remained ineligible to represent the country. In the game against Cook Islands, scrum-half Brouqui scored a try and fly-half Jimenez a penalty, so they had a significant influence on the result.The sanctions for this breach of Regulation 8 are the overturning of the result of their match against Cook Islands, who have now been awarded the win, and a fine of £50,000 to the union. The payment of the fine has been suspended for five years provided the union does not commit a further breach of Regulation 8 before 4 August 2022. This is because the fine would have a huge financial impact on the game in Tahiti.Gresson’s judgement emphasised the importance of the eligibility rules, stating: “Regulation 8 is a cornerstone provision governing the eligibility of players to play international rugby. Unless there is strict compliance with its provisions, the integrity of the game and honest participation at international level would be seriously undermined. Put simply, in terms of the eligibility rules there must be a level playing field.”In terms of overturning the match result, he added: “Given the breaches which have been committed by the union, to not allow the result to change would not only be unfair to the CIRU (Cook Islands Rugby Union) but would not send a clear and deterrent message to unions that this important core regulation will be upheld and enforced.”Sad sight: Players of Spain and of Belgium come together (Getty Images)This is the second time in a week that controversy has dogged the RWC 2019 qualification process. On Sunday, there were ugly scenes at the end of Spain’s defeat by Belgium. The result meant it was Romania who automatically qualified and Spanish players reacted angrily towards the Romanian officials at their match – and many have questioned the decision to have a referee with that conflict of interest in charge.Related: Ugly scenes at Belgium v SpainThere are now just three spots left to be filled at RWC 2019. Spain will play Portugal to determine who will face Samoa in a two-legged play-off this summer, with the winner of that going through as the Play-off Winner in Pool A.

He is reporter, interviewer and editor of its website and the government of President Ismail Omar Guelleh has had him in its sights on many occasions. He was jailed three times between March last year and March this year, held each time in Gabode central prison. He was accused of posting images of police violence on his Facebook page and of covering an opposition demonstration, both of which enshrine the right of the public to be informed but which annoyed the Djibouti dictatorship. Despite being ill-treated in prison, he was refused access to a doctor several times. For the time being he is free, but who knows what tomorrow may bring.

first_img Twitter GEEK: Apple devices connecting to wireless printer instead of router Pinterest Previous articleA SHARP LIFE: The cost of raising kids, batteries not includedNext articleMATTER OF RECORD: Feb. 23 through Feb. 28 admin WhatsApp Pinterest Facebook >> Jeff Werner is a software engineer and has been writing this column since 2007. Q: I’m a Mac-aholic (iPhone, iPad, iMac), so I read your column to keep up on news in the tech world, but most of your questions have to do with PC, vice Apple. My question today, though, is platform irrelevant (I think). I have a wireless printer, which works perfectly. I can sit in my living room reading my iPad, and print out an article on the printer in my study. Way Cool!This requires, though, an HP-based network which shows up on my list of available networks on my wireless router. And nearly (but not EVERY) time I open my iPad, I get a NO INTERNET CONNECTION because I’m logged on to my HP-printer network instead of my working wireless network in the house. Is there some way to make my devices ALWAYS default to the “normal” wireless network and only go to the HP-printer network when I use the printer? Or do I continue switching when I log on?– Robert T.Navarre, FloridaA: Thanks, Robert. I can only answer the questions that I receive, and frankly, I don’t receive too many Apple questions. (I chose “Apple” rather than “Mac” since two of the three devices you listed are not in the Mac family, but all are produced by Apple.) Now, I’m sure there are those readers out there that will say that I don’t get many Apple product questions because Macs and iDevices don’t ever have any problems. I would beg to differ, as my direct experience proves otherwise. Apple products may not have the same problems that PCs have, but they have problems all their own. Unlike PCs, when an Apple device crashes, it usually just resets or powers off with no error message at all, or an indecipherable, sometimes animated graphic on the screen. On the other hand, PCs, or more specifically Windows, generate some cryptic message that often requires a computer scientist to interpret and act on.More on this later. For now, let’s move on to your non-platform-specific, wireless printer problem, shall we? The answer to your question is “yes, there is a way,” and it’s probably far simpler than you realize.First of all, you are mistaken in your belief that wireless printing requires the use of what you called “an HP-based network which shows up on [your] list of available networks.” The reason you’re seeing an entry for your printer in your list of available networks is because your printer is broadcasting a SSID, or Service Set Identifier, which is the primary name that is associated with any 802.11-based wireless access point. This is not the mechanism through which your iPad connects to the printer. The “wireless” part of wireless printing refers to the connection between your iPad and your LAN. The mechanism by which your printer connects to your LAN is irrelevant. In fact, you could completely disable your printer’s Wi-Fi, and connect it to your home network via an Ethernet cable, and you would still be able to print to it from your iPad. As long as the printer is properly configured on your router, you can print to it no matter how it is connected.So, the question then becomes something completely different. To solve your problem, you can either stop the printer from broadcasting its SSID, or you can tell your iPad not to connect to that SSID anymore. The former option requires you to connect to the printer’s web configuration portal and go into the Wi-Fi Direct Setup. On the Advanced tab, you’ll find a box labeled “Do not broadcast the Wi-Fi Direct name”. Check it, and restart the printer, and it will no longer appear in lists of available networks. The latter option is the easiest of all, and can be done in conjunction with the other option. On your iPad, go to the list of available networks and find the entry for your printer. Tap the blue arrow next to the network name, then select “Forget this Network”. Do this, and your iPad will not try to connect to this network anymore unless you manually reconnect it.● ● ●In light of the verbiage at the beginning of this week’s edition, I’d like to take the opportunity to point out that It’s Geek To Me is not a “PC/Windows” column, or even a “Computer” column. I consider I.G.T.M. to be a “Technology Q&A Feature” and I field questions about all aspects of technology. It’s just a coincidence that the vast majority of questions I receive are about computers, mostly Windows-based PCs. Perhaps my saying that will compel some of my readers out there to write in with more general technology questions.To view additional content, comment on articles, or submit a question of your own, visit my website at (not .com!)

Gurumurthy has been asked to appear before the AG, either in person or through Counsel, on February 16, 2021. Background Notices have been issued on the applications filed by Advocates P. Pugalenthi and S. Doraisamy, alleging that Guruswamy’s remarks have scandalized the Courts and lowered public confidence in the Judiciary. During an annual event of the magazine on January 14, Gurumurthy had allegedly said that “most of the Judges are dishonest and meritless and obtained the post of the High Court Judge by falling in the legs of politicians”. Advocate P. Pugalenthi moved the High Court stating that a bare look at Gurumurthy’s speech would reveal his intention to lower the esteem of the judiciary in the minds of the public. “The respondent unhesitatingly says during his speech that many of the judges got their appointments by prostrating at the feet of the politicians and therefore they would be sympathetic to the corrupt politicians. Thus, the respondent has minced no words in announcing to the whole world that there would not be justice at the hands of the judges who were appointed by the politicians. The words used by the respondent would make the people lose faith in the judiciary and would ultimately result in destruction of rule of law,” Pugalenthi said. Reliance was placed on SK Sarkar v. Vinay Chandra Misra, AIR 1981 SC 723, where the Supreme Court held that the Court may, in its discretion, take suo moto cognizance of the matter on the basis of the information supplied to it in a contempt petition filed without consent of the AG. Meanwhile, Advocate S. Doraisamy had written to Advocate General Vijay Narayan seeking his consent under Section 15(b) of the Contempt of Courts Act, 1971 for initiation of contempt. In his letter, Doraisamy stated that the false, scandalizing and dishonest speech of Gurumurthy has undermined people’s confidence in administration of justice and has brought the High Court into disrepute and disrespect, which amounts to criminal contempt. He further went on to discard the allegations levelled by Gurumurthy as follows: “According to the contemnor, most of the High Court Judges are meritless and were appointed as a judge by illegal method. It is a false and frivolous statement against the Judges. Almost all the judges of the Madras High Court are appointed considering their own merit only. Their names were chosen by the collegium of the Madras High Court and it is forwarded to the Supreme Court Collegium and then their names are forwarded to the Law Ministry. The Law Ministry forward the name to the Intelligent Bureau, then the Intelligent Bureau make a thorough investigation into the honesty and merits of each candidates and if in the report it is found that a candidate is not meritless, his name will be returned to the Supreme Court Collegiums.” He added, “After the collegiums system had come in, the constitutional requirement of “in consultation with the Government has given a go buy” and the consultation is only a formal. Thus there is no chance for any politician to interfere with the appointment of the High Court Judges and only meritorious persons with the integrity are chosen as High Court Judges.” Significantly, Gurumurthy has already expressed regret and has clarified that his remarks were absolutely unintended, and were made in the course of an extempore reply to a provocative question. This is not the first time that Gurumurthy is in news for making scandalous remarks. Two years ago, he faced contempt proceedings before the Delhi High Court for his tweets against Justice S Muralidhar. He was however let off after rendering an unconditional apology before a Division Bench.Next Storylast_img read more

first_imgkatifcam/iStock(BOWIE, Md.) — Five children were killed over the weekend when a vehicle veered off a Maryland road and crashed into a snowy wooded area, authorities said.Investigators said a minivan veered off the left side of a road in Bowie, Maryland, and crashed into several trees at around 5 a.m. Saturday, killing five children and injuring two adults, according to the Maryland State Police.Police identified the children as London Dixon, 8, and Paris Dixon, 5, who were siblings, Rickelle Ricks, 6, Zion Beard, 14, and Damari Herald, 15.The children, who were members of an extended family, were ejected from the backseat of the 2005 Chrysler Pacifica and pronounced dead on the scene.It appears that they were not restrained properly, Maryland State Police Capt. Daniel Pickett said at a press conference Saturday.“At this time, we have not ruled out any possible cause or circumstances that contributed to this collision. We’re looking at all aspects,” Pickett said. “The investigation is early. We going to do an in depth investigation and find the cause.”Dominique Taylor, 32, the driver and the mother of London and Paris, and a front seat passenger, were transported to a local hospital with unspecified injuries.The passenger was in critical condition as of Saturday afternoon, but the driver’s condition was unknown.Investigators believe preliminary evidence indicates they were both were wearing seat belts.“Every collision we have where we lose life is a tragedy,” Pickett said. “It’s as simple as that. And when children are involved, it’s more of a tragedy.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

first_imgOxygen consumption (MO2) and activity were evaluated in Antarctic Bryozoa. Three species representing two different morphologies, flat sheet, laminar forms, Isoseculiflustra tenuis and Kymella polaris, and the bush form Camptoplites bicornis were used. In Bryozoa, activity is measured as the proportion of colony zooids with their lophophores extended. In L. tenuis and K. polaris, residual analysis showed that the percentage of zooids with extended lophophores was not correlated with colony MO2. Lophophore extension is, therefore, a poor measure of activity, and other costs (e.g. growth, reproduction, storage) probably form the major metabolic Costs. MO2 per unit of ash-free dry mass (AFDM) in the laminar forms was low compared with other Antarctic marine invertebrates, but not lower than brachiopods and echinoderms. However, the lowest rate here, 16.8 mug O-2 g AFDM(-1) h(-1) for a K. polaris colony, is (to our knowledge) the lowest for any animal so far reported. MO2 per unit of AFDM for C. bicornis, however, is among the highest reported for sessile or slow moving Antarctic marine ectotherms, with values similar to those for bivalve and gastropod molluscs. The highest rate, 527 mug O-2 g AFDM(-1) h(-1) for one colony is (to our knowledge) the highest reported for polar animals of this type. Extreme diversity in metabolic strategy may explain the bryozoan long evolutionary record and great success in shallow marine environments worldwide.last_img read more
