Cricket News Quinton de Kock Breaks AB de Villiers’ T20I Record But South Africa Choke Instead Of England

first_imgNew Delhi: Quinton de Kock was blasting sixes at will in Kingsmead. His eight sixes resulted in a 17-ball fifty, which is the fastest by a South African in Twenty20 Internationals breaking the previous record set by AB de Villiers. When he fell, England pulled things back slightly but Rassie van der Dussen helped South Africa close in on the target which was in excess of 200. Dwaine Pretorius smashed a six and a four as three runs were needed off two balls in the final over bowled by Tom Curran. However, just like in East London, there was drama. In the first match, England choked. In Durban, it was South Africa. Curran trapped Pretorius LBW and Bjorn Fortuin holed out to short fine leg as England levelled the three-match series in style with a narrow two-run win on Friday.When England’s batsmen chipped in consistently to boost England to 204/7, it looked like South Africa would face an uphill struggle. However, Temba Bavuma and De Kock had other ideas. Bavuma got going with a couple of boundaries and de Kock showed his intent with a four off Moeen Ali. The South Africa skipper smashed a six over fine leg off Chris Jordan as Bavuma was offered a reprieve. As the powerplay ended, de Kock switched on his beast mode. The left-hander blasted three sixes off Moeen and neared his fifty with two more sixes off Curran.De Kock notched up his fifty with another huge six off Adil Rashid and Bavuma was given another life when the DRS overturned an LBW decision. De Kock continued to murder the England bowling as he swung his eighth six to deep square leg and looked ominous with a boundary off Mark Wood. England, though, found the opening they needed as De Kock mistimed a high full toss, which was just below the waist to deep midwicket for a brilliant 22-ball 65. Wood struck again when Bavuma gloved a short ball but South Africa were in a good position at 101/2 in the 10th over.Quinton de Kock smashed a fifty off 17 balls and the knock included eight sixes. (Image credit: Getty Images)David Miller kept the fight going with two sixes off Rashid but in the 12th and 13th over, England gave away just nine runs with Ben Stokes getting rid of Miller. The game seemed to be slipping away from South Africa but Rassie van der Dussen smashed a four and a six off Stokes. Smuts also hit a six off Curran but he was bowled by Jordan and when Andile Phehlukwayo was sent back for 0, the Proteas needed 45 off 18 balls. van der Dussen once again lifted South Africa with two sixes and a four off Mark Wood.When Pretorius hit a four off Jordan, South Africa needed 15 runs in the last over. Curran bowled a dot ball but Pretorius blasted a six and four and after two runs, South Africa seemed to be heading over the finish line but like in East London, the tables were reversed and South Africa ‘choked’ to lose the game by two runs.Moeen Ali Blitzes AwayEngland suffered a jolt after they were inserted in when Jos Buttler’s poor form continued as he was dismissed by Lungi Ngidi for 2. Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy continued the fine work as they struck boundaries at will. Roy smashed a six and a four off Beuran Hendricks as England ended the powerplay on 55/1. Bairstow pummelled two sixes off Phehlukwayo but he was dismissed for 35 off 17 balls. Eoin Morgan looked good with a couple of fours but South Africa were boosted when Roy was sent packing by Tabraiz Shamsi for 40. Morgan looked good but Stokes struggled for timing as South Africa pulled things back in the middle overs.Morgan fell to Pretorius and Joe Denly fell to Phehlukwayo. Moeen, though, showed he wanted to change the game and he got going with a six off Phehlukwayo. Moeen showed his class with two sixes and a four off Hendricks and in the next over bowled by Ngidi, Moeen smashed a six and two fours but was dismissed for a staggering 39 off 11 balls.Also Read | Quinton de Kock Slams Century, South Africa Beat World Champions England In First ODIJordan and Stokes found the boundary and England’s star all-rounder took England to 200 with a six off Ngidi. The assault by Moeen resulted in England scoring 68 runs in the last four overs and it was just about enough to take the series into the decider.

Sony’s ‘Uncharted 4,’ ‘Last Guardian’ capture E3 attention

first_img Asad Qizilbash, head of software marketing for Sony Computer Entertainment America, walks out onstage as graphics from the video game “Dreams” are displayed during the Sony Playstation at E3 2015 news conference at the Los Angeles Sports Arena on Monday, June 15, 2015, in Los Angeles.

(Photo by Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP) Sony kept most of the focus of its trade show presentation on games coming to the PlayStation 4 console, demonstrating such titles on stage as the sci-fi exploration game “No Man’s Sky” and the impressionistic platformer “The Last Guardian,” a title that was originally teased six years ago at E3 2009.“I could not be happier standing here today,” said Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios. “You don’t know how long I have waited for this moment.”Sony spent much of its time in the E3 spotlight promoting exclusive content coming to PS4s for such games as the military shooter sequel “Call of Duty: Black Ops 3,” Caped Crusader saga “Batman: Arkham Knight,” Victorian-era stealth game “Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate” and sci-fi shooter “Destiny.”Alex Evans, co-founder of “LittleBigPlanet” developer Media Molecule, announced his newest creation: “Dreams,” a trippy puppeteering game where users three-dimensionally draw characters and props together.“In 2015, everything is a remix,” said Media Molecule co-founder Alex Evans.Other games hyped Monday included a new rendition of “Hitman,” quirky first-person exploration game “Firewatch,” warrior-versus-robots romp “Horizon: Zero Dawn” and a high-definition remake of “Final Fantasy VII.”Yu Suzuki, the director of the beloved “Shenmue” series, came on stage to petition gamers to crowd-fund a “Shenmue 3” nearly 15 years after open-world “Shenmue 2” was released.Project Morpheus, Sony’s virtual reality headset that works in concert with the PS4, was only briefly mentioned during the presentation. The gaming and electronics giant previously announced the VR system would be out in spring 2016 but hasn’t specified a price.Andrew House, president and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment, said a multiplayer arena battle game for Morpheus called “Rigs” would be available for attendees to try this week on the floor of the E3 show at the Los Angeles Convention Center.“It’s e-sports, Morpheus-style,” House said.Beyond games, Sony declared it was expanding its PlayStation Vue online TV service to Los Angeles and San Francisco on Monday night, broadening availability from when it launched in March in New York, Chicago and Philadelphia. The cable alternative, starting at $50 a month, includes local TV stations affiliated with CBS, NBC, Fox, and pay TV channels such as AMC, Bravo, CNN and Comedy Central. The service is available on PS4 and PlayStation 3 consoles.center_img LOS ANGELES | Nathan Drake is back in action.Sony capped off its game-filled Electronic Entertainment Expo briefing Monday night with a bullet-riddled demonstration of “Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End,” the forthcoming action-adventure starring the charismatic treasure hunter.The preview showed Drake and mentor Victor “Sully” Sullivan engaging in a firefight on foot before evading enemies through city streets in a jeep.

Woods’ foundation to run PGA Tour event at Riviera

first_imgTiger Woods watches his chip to the fourth hole, during the first round of the Bridgestone Invitational golf tournament, Thursday, July 31, 2014, in Akron, Ohio. (AP Photo/Phil Long)Tiger Woods is going back to the PGA Tour event at Riviera for the first time since 2006.The Tiger Woods Foundation will become the host organization that runs the tournament, which has Hyundai Motor America as the new title sponsor. The PGA Tour said Tuesday that Woods will be the tournament host and become actively involved in the tournament.Riviera is where Woods, who grew up about 45 minutes away, made his PGA Tour debut as a 16-year-old amateur. He missed the cut with rounds of 72-75. “This is a fantastic opportunity for my foundation,” Woods said in a statement.“This is the first PGA Tour event I ever played, and it means a lot to contribute to a community that has supported me and my foundation for more than 20 years. I’m committed to playing in my foundation’s events, and it will be exciting to return to Riviera.” Hyundai previously was the title sponsor at the winners-only event at Kapalua that starts the year (Hyundai Tournament of Champions). It takes over in Los Angeles after Northern Trust moved its title sponsorship to the New York area for the opening FedEx Cup playoff event.“Recognizing Tiger’s ongoing connection to his home state through his foundation, we saw an opportunity to correspond the transition of the tournament operation with the new long-term sponsorship by Hyundai,” PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem said.Hyundai Motor America has headquarters in southern California.The question is when Woods will play. Because of two back surgeries late last year, he has not competed since August and has not indicated when he will return. Riviera has become the anchor of the West Coast Swing toward the end of February.Woods has never missed one of his foundation events except for injury. Along with playing, he donates all his earnings to the foundation.He last played what was then the Nissan Open at Riviera in 2006 when he narrowly made the cut and withdrew the next day with the flu.Taking over at Riviera means the Tiger Woods Foundation still has three PGA Tour events it runs — the Quicken Loans National in the Washington, D.C., area, and the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas.It previously had the Deutsche Bank Championship outside Boston. The tour said its management would take over Boston in 2017, and that the foundation will keep its charitable commitment to the New England area through the Earl Woods Scholarship Program. There are 15 scholars from the New England region, with five more scheduled for the next school year. Still to be determined is the name of the tournament.last_img read more

High Performance PNG reviews programs

first_img“While programs and services provided by High Performance Sport Papua New Guinea will remain unchanged, it will be the approach that will be enhanced going forward.”This was made clear by the High Performance Director Aaron Alsop when presenting the updates aligning the programs for 2016-2017.“The programs and services won’t change a lot in terms of what we are doing next year, but it will just mean that the amount or the level of services the athletes and coaches get access to depend on what tier structure they fit in,” Alsop said.Generally, the tiered program is a system for defining different levels of services and support for various sports teams and athletes.“So obviously, tier 1 sports being our absolute elite athlete that we have, right down through our tier three program,” Alsop said.He stressed that another program also gaining momentum going into 2017 is the Talent Pathway program, which aims to develop athletes through development scholarships.The opportunity of what High Performance is looking to do, as well with coaching scholarships, will mean that some of these programs may have been delivered before informally but haven’t been really structured.Other programs facilitated by HP were the tertiary schools sports days, which saw up to 10 colleges and institutions both in Port Moresby and Lae participate in games of volleyball, touch, futsal, mixed netball and basketball.Alsop said  the developments in the HP programs are set to enhance the participation of the country in international events, including the various Oceania championships in the region, the Youth Commonwealth Games in Bahamas,  the Asian Indoor Games, the Universiade (World University games) in Chinese Taipei, the 2018 Commonwealth Games and the Youth Olympics.last_img read more

At times she wanted to go the other way. I was like, ‘not on my watch, please.’ We were just hanging on.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?

(Steph Chambers/Pittsburgh Post-Gazette via AP)PITTSBURGH—John Tumpane can’t explain why he approached the woman as she hopped over the railing of the Roberto Clemente Bridge on Wednesday afternoon.The woman told Tumpane she just wanted to get a better view of the Allegheny River below. The look on her face and the tone of her voice suggested otherwise to Tumpane, a major league baseball umpire in town to work the series between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Tampa Bay Rays.ADVERTISEMENT End of his agony?

I saw somebody in need, and it looked like a situation to obviously insert myself and help out.”The aftermath was a bit surreal. After the woman was taken away, Tumpane called his wife, his arms still shaking.“Not too many times you call your wife and say you helped save somebody’s life,” he said. “A really special moment.”One that stayed with him even as he prepared to call balls and strikes behind home plate Wednesday night. During breaks in the action his eyes would drift to the bridge just a few hundred feet behind the center field wall at PNC Park.“It’s also hard when you stand back behind home plate and look and you see the bridge in the distance, In between innings and whatnot, just thinking of how things could have maybe been,” he said. “Glad it was this way.”Tumpane has no experience in crisis management or suicide prevention. He’s spent 16 years living the nomadic life of an umpire. Asked what was going through his head while he tried to coax the woman back to safety, Tumpane just shrugged his shoulders. How do you explain the unexplainable?“I happened to be in the right spot at the right time,” he said. “Tried to be as comforting as I could and talk her through it. Thankfully that was the outcome.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next What followed were chaotic moments of panic, fear and ultimately, grace.“I couldn’t tell you how long we were waiting for everyone else to get in place,” Tumpane said. ‘Obviously another power comes into be when you’re hanging on and you know what the alternative is of you letting go and not having other people to help you.”Tumpane, Weinman and the third volunteer clung to the unidentified woman until emergency responders arrived.

Now, 45 years later a crowd thrust together by fate brought a complete stranger back from the brink. Together.“Once they were able to secure her, we were able to talk her back to help us out and we got her back on this side,” Tumpane said. “After that I went up to her, she said, ‘You’ll just forget me after this’ and I said, ‘No, I’ll never forget you.’ This was an unbelievable day and I’m glad to say she can have another day with us …”Tumpane, who grew up in the Chicago suburbs, got into umpiring as a teenager, made his major-league debut in 2012 and received his full-time MLB commission in 2016, stressed he’s no hero.ADVERTISEMENTlast_img read more

They dealt with injuries; Cousins was out most of the year as he continued recovering from Achilles surgery, Stephen Curry dealt with a groin strain, Draymond Green had toe issues. They dealt with strife; a very popular narrative early in the season was that Durant and Green were warring Warriors. They looked really bored at times.And the postseason hasn’t been a cakewalk. The Los Angeles Clippers tested them in the first round, winning twice on the Warriors’ home floor at Oracle Arena. The second round against Houston was 2-2 after four games. Durant got hurt in Game 5 of that series with the outcome hanging in the balance.Go figure. The Warriors pulled out the win that night and haven’t lost since.For this series against the Toronto Raptors, they’re going to get Cousins back. They’ll probably get Durant back at some point, as well. Thompson tends to play well when he’s angry and he’s got a right to be angry after not being picked for the All-NBA team. And Curry, although individual honors aren’t why he plays the game, will probably be driven on some level to win NBA Finals MVP for the first time.More than anything, they’re playing for something dynastic.ADVERTISEMENT “It’s not going to last forever,” Kerr said on Sept. 24, as training camp was beginning.Fast forward to now.

THE POWER OF COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT/OWNERSHIP – (PART THREE): THE ROLE OF EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION

first_imgThe focus of this third article of the series centers on the role of effective communication in initiating and maintaining community ownership. What do we mean by an effective communication? What kind of communication do we need to help us spur on community participation at every level in every part of the country? Why is communication important for the right kind of community engagement? The second article on spreading community ownership everywhere in Liberia observed the following salient points:One way communities can remain engaged with their own and national issues is to maintain and build on the gains made with the involvement of the local communities in the fight against the Ebola pandemic. There was a massive effort from many partners to engage the local communities and get them to spread the awareness messages and the needed actions to halt the transmission. This was done through the use of local administrative structure and the huge training of chiefs, religious leaders, teachers, women and youth leaders, and getting many ordinary people at various levels of the community engaged with the process. In no time every local community in Liberia was in action in fight Ebola.This much training and community involvement should now be used in creative ways to attend to other critical needs of the nation such as keeping our schools and all learning institutions safe and promoting the restoration of basic health services (immunization of our children and building the required confidence in our health system).Through practical actions from government and others, communities should be taught and shown that the solution of their problems and promoting their own good causes lies in their own hands. Others can help but they must take the lead. Such vital lesson can be conveyed through involving, in a persistent and continuous way, the local communities in planning and implementing program and projects in the areas of health, education, agriculture, infrastructure, and inculcating local entrepreneurship. Communities must be consulted and made active partners in every part of the county. They can be active forces for the good of all.A required element of community engagement is appropriate communication. Communication is a two-way activity. It requires both speaking through verbal and non-verbal means and listening. One speaker speaks and the other listens and the other speaks and the one listens. Keen listening means the listener attempts to feel what the other feels, hear what the other hears and to put one in the other’s shoes.An effective communication is absolutely vital to any attempts to persuade people to do something, especially if it involves asking them to change their mental attitude and behavior. Any kind of propaganda (whether it is a war of any kind, a political platform, a new policy, a marketing strategy, an evangelistic undertaking, or any human endeavor that asks the voluntary involvement of other people) requires the right kind of communicating if it is to succeed. In fact, communication is a necessity for all who lead or influence others in one form or the other. Sometime the difference between success and failure depends on one communicates his/her vision.If communities are to find self-generating solutions to their problems and improve their total wellbeing there must be effective community at every level and stage of a continued process. Those who initiate and remain with community engagement have to be effective communicators.This requires an entry into the community. Community entry is about the strategies employed to get the community to open herself up and disclose its true needs, concerns and aspirations. There are all sorts of ways of doing this, depending on each particular community. Whatever means one chooses has to include involving the local leadership on the ground.Effective communication takes a lot more listening than talking. It means honestly and earnestly seeking to understand and learn from the community as opposed to telling her what one wants to communicate and coming to teach the community something. When one listens empathetically very often one learns something valuable from and about the people that one desires to engage. Effective communication overcomes barriers and creates countless opportunities for community participation and ownership.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
