Reynolds Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Southern California won 50-14. (Photo by Brian Bahr/Getty Images)The 2018 college football season hasn’t been kind to the Arkansas Razorbacks. After opening the season with a win, the Razorbacks lost six straight games before getting back in the win column two weekends ago against Tulsa.Last weekend, another number in the loss column moved Arkansas to 2-7 on the year. If that wasn’t bad enough, the team had to play host to LSU this weekend.The Tigers enter the game as the No. 7 team in the nation and have one of the fiercest defenses in college football. That defense has been dominant tonight against the Razorbacks, who have zero points on the night.And yet again, if that wasn’t bad enough, the Razorbacks are now tackling each other on offense.

I don’t want to put any pressure on myself by thinking about the No 4 spot in the Indian team. I understand that batting order depends on lot of things. For India, I am ready to bat at any position,” Rahane said during a media conference organised by Rajasthan Royals.The Rajasthan Royals skipper is happy that Steve Smith is back in the Royals’ fold and he can pick his brains on tactical matters.”It’s good to have him (Smith) back as a Rajasthan Royals player. He is a quality player and it’s always good to have him in your team. Also to pick his mind will be very important. We all know his ability to win matches,” Rahane said of former Australian captain.Asked about Jos Buttler’s batting position, Rahane made it clear that he is not too keen on tinkering with a set playing XI.He also urged media to go slow on new batting sensation Ashton Turner, who singlehandedly won a recent ODI against India.”Turner is a good addition to the team but media makes a hero of anyone in a single day but dumps him the next day. He has shown his ability on Indian wickets which shows he can adapt to conditions.advertisementAlso Read | IPL is good preparation for the upcoming World Cup: Robin UthappaAlso Read | Shubman Gill is a prodigy and the next big thing in Indian cricket: Robin UthappaFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

With the launch of its third restaurant in Juhu, Bayroute brings delicacies from the bustling streets of Egypt, Turkey, Lebanon, Morocco and Greece with kibbeh, koshari, manakeesh and tagine.While the decor is reminiscent of Arabian Nights, what makes this a must-visit in Mumbai is that the restaurant menu draws from family traditions of the region and a few forgotten recipes, and uses cooking techniques such as .atstone atop burning embers, a spinning rotisserie and open-fire roasted skewers that are believed to have originated in Middle East cooking.

With over a century of monsoons faced by the building, there was dampness in the walls and wooden members were structurally weakened,” says Abha Narain Lambah, the principal conservation architect for this project. The restoration was an effort they started 10 years ago, and while they got a seed fund from the Jewsih Heritage Grant Program from the World Monuments Fund, work couldn’t proceed as donations were difficult to get.advertisement”It is a small religious community so it was difficult to raise funds,” says Lambah.

Daryl Vaz, says the Government is working to ensure that the local labour force is equipped with the skills that are demanded by investors.As such, he said that strategic partnerships have been forged with the Jamaica Manufacturing Association (JMA) and the Business Process Industry Association of Jamaica (BPIAJ) to aid in the setting up of a Sector Skills Council.Mr. Vaz said that establishment of the body is part of recommendations arising from the Labour Market Forum held in April through contribution from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).He informed that apprenticeship programmes will be created with support from the private sector “to address skill gaps experienced by employers (which) will lead to greater employment”.Mr. Vaz was speaking at the official opening of Honey Bun Limited’s new US$1-million warehouse facility, at its Retirement Crescent headquarters in Kingston on May 3.He said that the Government is continuing its pursuit of policies that will boost job creation and economic growth.“These policies are (already) bearing fruit as unemployment continues to trend downwards. In January this year, the unemployment rate was 9.6 per cent, the lowest it has been for at least a decade. This figure represents a decrease of 3.1 per cent when compared to 12.7 per cent in 2017,” he indicated.Minister Vaz commended Honey Bun on the new facility, which, he said, “signals the confidence of the private sector in the economy”.The 11,500 square-foot space, built on the site of the former studio of veteran Reggae Producer, Joe Gibbs, will enable Honey Bun to increase production and exports as well as boost employment by 100 persons.Honey Bun Executive Chairman, Herbert Chong, said that the new warehouse will enable the company to operate at maximum capacity “utilising every inch of space in the most effective way”.It has been named in honour of the company’s late non-executive Board member and mentor to the Board, Sushil Jain.Founded in 1982, Honey Bun is the fastest-growing wholesale bakery in Jamaica, specialising in producing packaged pastries and baked snacks.It is the first Jamaican bakery to be Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP)-certified, and became publicly listed on the Jamaica Junior Stock Market in 2011.Mr. Chong said that through the junior market the company has been able to realise “many of its accomplishments”.

GIW outlines new apex hydrocyclone replacement kit

first_imgGIW in its most recent Flowsheet newsletter has described its “unique, patented Hydrocyclone Apex Replacement Kits, which it says “reduce downtime to mere minutes while giving longer service life and fewer unplanned outages.” Hydrocyclones separate particles in a slurry based on particle size or density, for example, in grinding circuits, hydrocyclones are used to classify particles for recirculation. The hydrocyclone apex sees the highest level of wear because it experiences the highest concentration of fast-moving coarse solids. This part is often the first to require maintenance because the interior of the apex can crack after repeated impacts from oversized material. Apex damage can throw your operations off balance, increasing grinding costs while decreasing recovery.GIW’s patented replacement apex design can be fitted into existing equipment in minutes with no modifications and standard maintenance tools. GIW apex kits apex use one clamp with two bolts as opposed to competitor’s four to ten nuts, bolts, and washers to attach the lower cone and apex to the body of the cyclone. The compay states: “No liners, glue, or gaskets are needed with GIW apex kits. The patented GIW urethane/ceramic replacement parts are manufactured to be a lighter weight than traditional steel housings, making service safe, quick, and simple. If a traditional ceramic apex cracks, it will usually fall out of the cyclone, resulting in severe damage to the apex housing and adjacent liners. GIW’s ceramic is bonded to a resilient urethane backing, so if it cracks, it won’t separate from the liner. Urethane encapsulation ensures the ceramic will give full life even when cracks occur.”The company states that by installing a GIW apex kit, a mine is saving time because of the simple installation procedure, ease of maintenance, and durability, as well as decreasing the frequency and severity of service outages. GIW replacement parts can be installed on any existing cyclone without modifications. GIW says its replacement parts cost 25-50% less than a standard ceramic apex and have a significantly longer service life. GIW’s proprietary RBSiC material, used in the replacement apex and lower cone, resists wear better than aluminum oxide, nitride bonded silicon carbide, and reaction bonded silicon carbide ceramics.last_img read more

Spanish president Roman In the TOP 7 in Sweden

The president of the Spanish Handball Federation, Juan de Dios Román, said the aim of the Spanish team at the next World Cup in Sweden will be completed in one of the top seven places to ensure a spot in the pre-Olympic tournaments, but no goals rule higher, which set in access to the semifinals.“The more ambitious approach goes for trying to enter the semifinals and, if not, try to be as high as possible, among the top seven, which would allow us to achieve a place in the pre-Olympic. We want to be a part of the Olympic Games in London 2012 “said Roman for Spanish Marca.In this interview, the president highlighted the progress shown by the Spanish from the beginning of the current Olympic cycle, which has allowed Spain to go from gray to thirteenth place achieved in WC 2009 in Croatia to rank sixth last year in the European Championships played in Austria.“They have been fulfilling the steps. In Croatia began the renovation with perhaps too severe a punishment, but in Austria the team set the tone, high tone, and now we all think that in Sweden will continue this progression, “said Roman. ← Previous Story Cristina Neagu on the road to Viborg?

Acting Premier of NSW expresses support for Republic of Macedonia

first_imgAs Greece and the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia are preparing to once again start discussions to resolve their ongoing dispute, an Australian politician decided to offer an opinion and urge the Federal Government to sanction the appropriation of a historical name. Speaking at a Queanbeyan ‘Macedonian’ Community event to celebrate the Orthodox Christmas, to an audience that included FYROM’s Ambassador to Australia, Vele Trpevski  Acting Premier of New South Wales and member for Monaro John Barilaro called on the Australian Government to recognise the Republic of Macedonia. The Deputy Premier of NSW began by a reference to Australia Day as a celebration of the country’s multicultural nature and praised the “Macedonian Community” for its contribution to the state. “Of course, I’m the son of Italian migrants and I understand the story of migration and immigration the great story of culture, religion and faith,” he said. “What I have always loved about the Macedonian community in Queanbeyan is how tight you have remained tight, how you have remained proud of who you are and you raise your children to be proud that they are, of course, the sons and daughters of the immigrants who chose Australia to be their home.”Addressing an audience  that included the FYROM’s ambassador to Australia, Vele Trpevski,  the Acting Premier went on to state that he “will always acknowledge the Republic of Macedonia” and called for the federal government to do the same: “I hope 2019 – and I know that the Ambassador is very strong on this – is the year that the world comes to its senses, that Australia as a nation, the Federal government comes to its senses and acknowledges as the only rightful name the Republic of Macedonia”, he said. Deputy Premier Barilaro finished his speech by offering a present to the community, a NSW Government grant of $150,000 for the “Macedonian” Community Centre. The whole incident was captured on video and circulated through social media, much to the dismay and anger of the Greek-Australian community of NSW. Given that these comments were made while John Barilaro was Acting Premier of NSW, this attempt to weigh in on a matter of Australian Foreign Policy, raises questions. Neos Kosmos tried to contact the Deputy Premier, as well as premier Gladys Berejiklian, requesting an official statement. “This Government has always been a proud supporter of Greece and the Greek community,” a spokesperson to the Premier stated. “Mr Barilaro’s comments do not in any way reflect the NSW Government’s position on this issue.”The Deputy Premier has yet to offer a response.  Watch the video here: Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Injured Neymar could miss the Copa America in Brazil

first_imgAfter knowing that Neymar’s injury may take him back to the operating room, Brazil manager ‘Tite’ revealed that he may even miss the Copa America.Terrible news for Neymar and Brazil, the national team that will host this year’s Copa America might miss out on the PSG star due to his most recent metatarsal injury.Last year as we all know, the star fell injured with a fracture on exactly the same area where he recently suffered the new setback.Everybody was trying to keep the results of his latest tests a secret, but L’Equipe was able to get a hold of the results and the news are very bad for both his club and country.Even though Paris Saint-Germain is trying to avoid the player from going under the knife again, it appears that there will be no choice for him and there will be a new surgery that will set him back for at least two months.This means that after getting surgery, Neymar will have to take a recovery period that effectively leaves him out of any competition with PSG and he will most likely miss the two matches against Manchester United in the Champions League.But that’s not all, this problem seems to go even deeper than only a few months of not playing football for his club.Manager ‘Tite’ spoke to the press from Paris on Monday to talk about the situation in detail, the expectations are not good.#CopaAmerica2019 🏆 | ¡Neymar podría perderse la Copa América! https://t.co/BHPMLsSJtJ pic.twitter.com/jkBtZre2qc— Diario SPORT (@sport) January 28, 2019Brazil’s main objective this year will be to win the upcoming Copa America that will be celebrated in their own country, they had Neymar as their biggest star for the competition but manager ‘Tite’ is having second thoughts about calling up the PSG star for the competition.Knowing how bad the result was from last year’s World Cup for Brazil, the boss revealed that he won’t call Neymar for the tournament if he thinks risking him isn’t necessary.‘Tite’ is aware that Brazil currently has a lot of great players who have the skills to replace Neymar if the star cannot get to the Copa America at the top of his game, he would prefer to leave him resting at home instead of risking his fresh injury once again.“PSG have taken a conservative approach towards the injury,” said ‘Tite’ to the press in Paris via Diario AS.“They [PSG] called Dr Lasmar, and other specialists are going to come,” he added.PSG, Neymar, Ligue 1PSG ultras sent a warning letter to Neymar Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Brazilian superstar Neymar might play today his first game of the season for Paris Saint-Germain and the team’s ultras have warned him.“Only then will they decide about what to do with his foot. It seems right to me that there is caution at this moment.”“Neymar will not pay the price at the cost of his health,” his manager said.“I will lose my job, but I’m not going to put the responsibility onto his shoulders by calling him [while injured].”Tres patadas, la respuesta de Neymar tras reanudarse el juego es ejemplar pic.twitter.com/8PKlAqVwV8— L. Alcázar (@l_Alcazar) January 28, 2019The clock has already started ticking for Neymar, he will do everything in his power to not last too long in recovery and make it all the way to the Copa America in his country.As far as the reports tell us, a decision of whether the player gets surgery or not hasn’t been made yet and any news on the matter will be published on this website as soon as we know that will happen.Neymar is currently resting at his house in Paris, he is not yet scheduled to travel to Brazil for any second opinion from any doctor because the Brazil National Team’s medical staff has traveled to France in order to assess the situation.This might be the perfect opportunity for other young players such as Vinicius Junior or Lucas Paqueta to make their debut with the senior squad, they will have to take over during the time that Neymar gets fully recovered from his latest injury.Paris Saint-Germain will have to make do without Neymar for now, they have Cavani and Mbappé to cover his absence but not even they might be enough to compete against Manchester United.Neymar lesionado para los de final, lo celebro pic.twitter.com/fc0kOw7ajf— A l o n s o G a r c í a (@alonsowaga) January 28, 2019How long will it take Neymar to get completely recovered at PSG?

England benches Rooney majority of starters for farewell match against Costa Rica

first_imgBELO HORIZONTE — England manager Roy Hodgson will field an experimental sideas his team’s miserable World Cup draws to a close against Costa Rica in Belo Horizonte on Tuesday at 10 a.m.Center-back Gary Cahill and striker Daniel Sturridge will be the only survivors from Thursday’s 2-1 loss to Uruguay in Sao Paulo, which sealed England’s elimination in the group phase.But Hodgson insisted that despite the absence of star striker Wayne Rooney and captain Steven Gerrard, it would be “out of the question” to aim for anything except a win.Ben Foster will play in goal, Phil Jones at right-back, Cahill will play center-back alongside Chris Smalling, and teenager Luke Shaw will play left-back, Hodgson said at a press conference at the Estadio Mineirao.The midfield will be made up of James Milner, Frank Lampard, Jack Wilshere, Ross Barkley and Adam Lallana, with Sturridge up front, he added.Southampton left-back Shaw, 18, and 20-year-old Everton midfielder Barkley will be making their first competitive starts for England.While Hodgson is eager to give as many members of his squad a taste of World Cup football as possible, he also wants to see his side sign off with a victory.“With a very different team and a lot of players who haven’t played in the tournament so far, I wanted everyone to go home from this tournament — or at least as many as possible — having taken part and played in a game, not just training,” he said.“We’re very conscious of the fact that our fans are as disappointed and devastated as we are, but they are still here supporting us.“We came into the hotel and received a lot of sympathy, kind words from them, and we really want to make certain tomorrow (Tuesday) night that they see something that they can take some encouragement from.“And most importantly of all, it’s a top-class international on the biggest stage of all, the World Cup, so anything else than taking the game very seriously and trying to win the game in its own right would be out of the question.”Hodgson had already announced that 36-year-old Lampard would captain the side, on what could be his final England appearance, with regular skipper Steven Gerrard starting on the bench.Lampard is expected to announce his international retirement after the tournament, but Hodgson still hopes to be able to call upon the former Chelsea midfielder in future.While Costa Rica require a point from the game to secure top spot in Group D, there is nothing riding on the match for England. But Lampard has urged his teammates to stand up and be counted.“Now we are in a situation where we have to show we’re men,” he said.Costa Rica also plans to test out some reserves against the English. Coach Jorge Luis Pinto said defender Roy Miller and forward Randall Brenes will start for La Sele. Pinto, however, did not reveal his full line-up or who Miller and Brenes would replace.England team:Ben Foster; Phil Jones, Gary Cahill, Chris Smalling, Luke Shaw; Frank Lampard (capt), Jack Wilshere; James Milner, Ross Barkley, Adam Lallana; Daniel Sturridge Facebook Comments Related posts:Do or die for England, Uruguay on Thursday Costa Rica achieves highest FIFA ranking ever (No. 16) after historic World Cup run Costa Rica can go far, says coach Pinto President Solís says Sele’s victories portend good things for Costa Ricalast_img read more
