Japans Emperor Says Declining Health May Hinder Ability to Fulfill Duties

Tokyo – Japanese Emperor Akihito said declining health might hinder ability to fulfill his duties, in sign of possible future abdication.Emperor Akihito, 82, said in a rare video address to the public that he worried his age may make it difficult for him to fully carry out his duties.In nationally televised remarks on Monday, Akihito also said there were limits to reducing the emperor’s duties as the “symbol of the state”, the status accorded to the monarch. “When I consider that my fitness level is gradually declining, I am worried that it may become difficult for me to carry out my duties as the symbol of the state with my whole being, as I have done until now,” he said.Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said shortly after the address that he would take the emperor’s remarks “seriously”.With MAP read more

NGO to be questioned

“We would like to state on record that we find this notice to be present at the KDN (Home Ministry) office to record Tan’s statement about a film screening is highly unnecessary. It is disruptive to his work and seems more like a form of harassment when they had already recorded the statements of KOMAS staff and colleagues who were arrested and questioned for more than 3 hours on the night of July 4th. 2013. Tan also acted as the person to post bail for the 3 arrested KOMAS colleagues then. This continued form of intimidation tactics to curb freedom of expression and speech is highly disappointing especially when these basic rights are in fact guaranteed in Article 10 of the Malaysian constitution, the most important and highly regarded document in the land. Despite our objections to this form of unnecessary harassment by the KDN, Tan has nevertheless agreed to be present at the KDN office together with KOMAS legal counsel at 10am on July 22nd 2013,” the statement said. (Colombo Gazette) A Malaysian NGO is to be questioned next week over its screening of the controversial film “No Fire Zone, the Killing Fields of Sri Lanka” in Malaysia.KOMAS Director Tan Jo Hann said in a statement that he had received a fax notice from the Malaysian Home Affairs Ministry requiring him to be present at their office to record his statement on the issue. Tan being summoned to have his statement recorded is related to KOMAS screening of the film “No Fire Zone, the Killing Fields of Sri Lanka” that was raided by Police and Immigration department on 3rd July. read more

The Raptors lead the best-of-seven series 3-2.Previous renditions of O Canada at the NBA Finals in Oakland have been met with mixed reviews.Saskatchewan-born country singer Tenille Arts faced some backlash on social media after Game 3 as several people accused her of “butchering” the anthem by veering away from its familiar tune.Walk Off the Earth, Burlington, Ont., band, divided audiences for Game 4 when the four members gathered around a triple-necked string instrument for an acoustic folk version of “O Canada.”Longtime Toronto national anthem performer Doug Tranquada delivered the opening stanza to O Canada in Game 5 before letting fans at Scotiabank Arena take over on Monday night.McLachlan, a Juno and Grammy winner, has a history of singing O Canada to usher in historic sports moments.She performed the anthem at Canadian football team the BC Lions’ first game back at their newly refurbished home stadium in 2011. Two years later, she sang for the NHL’s Vancouver Canucks home opener. read more

The Pistons Are Far From Perfect But They Could Make Noise In

Reggie Jackson feeding Blake Griffin in the post (via @BleacherReport) pic.twitter.com/yx5tmzqwuK— The Render (@TheRenderNBA) February 1, 2019The team has to use an array of handoffs and screens, both on and off the ball, to convince defenders to move and to free up jump-shooters.4The team’s lineups lack two-way balance. So despite Bruce Brown’s valuable defensive contributions, his inability to shoot allows defenders to ignore him along the perimeter, making it tougher to find someone like Luke Kennard or Wayne Ellington. No team scores fewer fast-break points per night than Detroit, and the Pistons are less efficient after forcing a turnover on D than any other NBA club.If there’s been a surprise during the team’s stretch of solid play, it’s that Detroit has shot so well in the aftermath of trading its best shooter, Reggie Bullock — a deal that initially looked suspect and suggested to many that the Pistons were trying to dodge paying the luxury tax. (Signing perimeter threat Wayne Ellington obviously made up for much of that.)But there’s a strong argument to be made that speedy backup guard Ish Smith has been the catalyst in the turnaround. The Pistons were terrible in the time he missed earlier in the season with an injury but looked competent again once he rejoined the lineup. (With Smith out, the only other point guard Detroit had outside of Jackson was 37-year-old Jose Calderon.)Heading into Wednesday night’s games, only four players5Charlotte’s Tony Parker, Golden State’s Alfonzo McKinnie, Utah’s Georges Niang and Boston’s Semi Ojeleye. had helped boost their teams’ winning percentages more than Smith,6Only counting players who’d appeared in at least 30 games while also missing at least 10. according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The Pistons have logged a 21-13 record with Smith (61.8 percent) and an 8-18 mark (30.8 percent) without him.Buying stock in the Pistons feels risky because of their shallow depth and their cold spells that feel like arctic blasts straight from Canada. This 11-game stretch hasn’t been tough, featuring just two wins over teams that would make the playoffs if the season ended today.Still, Detroit owns an 87 percent playoff probability and a favorable remaining schedule — far easier than that of Brooklyn, Charlotte or Miami.7But slightly tougher than Orlando’s. The Pistons’ defense has been solid all year (Drummond is among the league leaders in steals), and the club limits opponents to a league-low 33.7 percent from the 3-point line.There’s a bizarre universe in which the Pistons could reach the playoffs at below .500 and still be favored in the first round. If the Pistons land at the No. 6 seed, and the Pacers minus star Victor Oladipo hold on to the No. 3, not only would Detroit have the top player in the series, but it would also have a real chance to advance to the second round.Beggars can’t be choosers, and those might be high hopes for now. But for a capped-out franchise that hasn’t reached the second round since 2008, the mere dream itself almost feels like a noteworthy accomplishment.Check out our latest NBA predictions. There’s a natural tendency in the NBA to lavish attention on teams that, with every bad loss, send social media into a tizzy because of what it might mean for the league’s landscape. For instance, if the LeBron-led Lakers don’t reach the postseason — a 80 percent probability at this point — it would seem a foregone conclusion that major changes would take place in L.A. this summer.On the other extreme, then, are the Pistons. Detroit, which has been to the NBA playoffs once in the past nine seasons, desperately craves a postseason berth. But if the Pistons don’t make it, there won’t be headlines in national news outlets criticizing them for it. And even if there were, it would be tough to make big changes within an organization that has a first-year head coach and a top-heavy roster. This is their team for now.The Pistons are clearly an imperfect club. But they can bolster their fortunes by simply continuing to play the way they have in recent weeks, winning eight of their past 11 games. Through Feb. 1, the sputtering Pistons’ offense ranked 29th out of the league’s 30 teams in both effective field goal rate and true shooting percentage. Since Feb. 2, though, the club has jumped into the top five leaguewide in both categories.Unlike earlier stretches in the season, when All-Star forward Blake Griffin was carrying the offense, the Pistons have enjoyed a far more balanced approach over the past month. The team’s share of one-on-one plays — which was the NBA’s second-highest through Feb. 11Behind Houston. — ranked just 12th over the past month of action, according to stat-tracking database Second Spectrum.After coming into the season showing off a jumper that wasn’t quite game-ready, two-time All-Star Andre Drummond has looked better than ever simply by getting back to the basics near the rim. He’s averaging more than 22 points and 17 boards2He’s leading the NBA again in rebounding. over his past seven games and has found considerable success with a nifty little push shot from about 8 feet out. Beyond that, maddeningly inconsistent guard Reggie Jackson has been consistently good for a month now and is shooting a career-best 36 percent from deep.All of this is noteworthy for an offense that sometimes shoots as if the object of the sport is to bruise the backboard with repeated misfires. On Wednesday in San Antonio, for instance, Detroit bricked 14 of its first 15 shots to begin the second quarter. Coach Dwane Casey has acknowledged that the iso-heavy games prior to February were largely a necessity: Griffin trying to break down an entire defense — or simply trying to post up — was often Detroit’s best hope.3With Griffin and others often standing around waiting for things to happen on offense, the Pistons rank third in the NBA in three-second violations. read more

England recall RolandJones for West Indies decider

Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Related (AFP) England have recalled Toby Roland-Jones for the series-deciding third Test against the West Indies at the Middlesex paceman’s Lord’s home ground, skipper Joe Root said Wednesday.Roland-Jones is the only change to the side that suffered a surprise five-wicket defeat by the West Indies in the second Test at Headingley as the tourists levelled the three-match series at 1-1.England bowler Toby Roland-Jones (Daily Express photo)The 29-year-old, who made his debut in the recent home series win over South Africa, was omitted despite taking 14 wickets at under 20 apiece in his first three Tests and was replaced in Leeds by Chris Woakes, returning from a side strain.Now, however, the roles are reversed, with Roland-Jones coming back into the side at the expense of Warwickshire all-rounder Woakes, who had disappointing bowling match figures of two for 122 at Headingley.“Home conditions, he (Roland-Jones) obviously knows the surfaces and is bowling very well at the moment,” Root told reporters at Lord’s when asked to explain the change in his line-up.“It’s obviously very difficult to leave somebody like Chris out, he’s been a consistent performer in Test cricket for England.“But this is a team I think is going to win this week,” star batsman Root added the day before Thursday’s start.“There’s plenty of cricket to be played throughout the rest of this summer and he (Woakes) is a fantastic performer across all formats. I fully expect him to come back strong.”‘Hindsight’Root, asked by AFP it had been unfair to drop Roland-Jones for the second Test, replied: “It is easy to say in hindsight. I think that’s slightly unfair on Chris. He’s coming back from injury and it’s always difficult to say if someone’s completely fit.“I’m sure he feels a lot better for that game under his belt last week. We’ve made a call on what side we think is going to win this week and Toby was the choice that we went with.”Root gave his backing to under pressure number three Tom Westley, who has managed just 19 runs in three innings this series.“You speak as a batting group and as a team and you have conversations in the dressing room all the time and you want to make sure you are helping out where and when you can,” Root said.“Ultimately no one knows Tom’s game like he does. He’s a smart young man and he’ll be desperate to prove a point and put some big runs on the board this week.”This match is England’s last Test before they begin the defence of the Ashes in Australia in November.Having seen his side pull clear of South Africa after the Proteas levelled a four-match series at 1-1, Root is confident England can respond in similar fashion at Lord’s.“Credit to the West Indies, they played very well last week, but we’re a strong side and we’ve shown over the course of this summer and in the past that we’ve been able to come back from difficult weeks and this is another opportunity for us to do just that,” Root said.“I thought we showed great character last week, coming back into the game after a poor start.”“We go into every game trying win,” he added.“I know that sounds pretty obvious but you want good results in behind you going into a big series like that (the Ashes), but more importantly we want to make sure that we play well this week and win this series.”Teams and officials for the third Test between England and the West Indies at Lord’s on Thursday:England: Alastair Cook, Mark Stoneman, Tom Westley, Joe Root (capt), Dawid Malan, Ben Stokes, Jonny Bairstow (wkt), Moeen Ali, Toby Roland-Jones, Stuart Broad, James AndersonWest Indies (probable): Kraigg Brathwaite, Kieran Powell, Kyle Hope, Shai Hope, Roston Chase, Jermaine Blackwood, Shane Dowrich (wkt), Jason Holder (capt), Kemar Roach, Devendra Bishoo, Shannon GabrielUmpires: Chris Gaffaney (NZL), Marais Erasmus (RSA)TV umpire: S Ravi (IND)Match referee: David Boon (AUS) read more

Ljubomir Vranjes about Veszprems move Its time for a new way

← Previous Story NEW COACH IN VESZPREM: Vranjes and SG Flensburg separate ways! Next Story → FRANCE 2017: Who are new stars of world’s handball? Breaking news coming from Flensburg and Veszprem where both team announced decisions about Ljubomir Vranjes status. One of the best coaches on the Earth explained in FB status his decision to leave Germany and take a new challenge in Hungary.Today my transfer to Veszprem was officially announced.http://www.handball-planet.com/new-coach-in-veszprem-vranjes-and-sg-flensburg-separate-ways/As you can imagine, the last few months have been very emotional for me and my wife, since October we have been having many sleepless nights thinking about what is the best decision for our family! I also asked for advice from near friends and players and they also helped me to have a clearer pictures off the whole situation. I had to take one of the most difficult decision in my life. At the end I decided to take up the challenge. You can not always plan your life, some things you just can not influence, it doesn´t matter if it is a private or a professional thing.I know that some of you will find it difficult to understand my decision and there is no right time for a decision like this but I was very clear about everything and informed SG very early in this matter.For some time in the media there was some rumor and I really tried to answer honestly but that does not always work, because I simply wasen´t allowed to say anything.The last few years I was offered some lucrative contract proposals from different clubs and countries and I’m very grateful for that. It´s they way it´s all working.SUMMER 2017: Ljubomir Vranjes to overtake Veszprem and Hungary?I have rejected many offers and remained loyal to SG, even if I could change club without any transfer fee. Now, fairly SG benefits from my move, they believed in me and luckily I succeeded as coach but there is also another side of it and that is if it doesn´t work then the player or the coach hast o leave the club before the contract expires but unfortunately this also belongs to our profession.SG is playing on the highest level at the moment, and almost all the players will remain next year, so the SG will continue to play on the highest level and they will continue to play for all titles in the future.It’s time for me and the SG to find new ways.There are several reasons why I have asked for a early release, the most important reason is about my private life.Therefore, I thank the SG, that they were accommodating in this.I will live near my Serbian family and many friends. My parents have grown old and I want to live closer to them in the future.But that’s all now about the future.Now I’m going to give everything I have together with my team the last months of the season to try to honor you all with a worthy farewell.This was some honest words from me and I hope somehow you can understand the decision!Thank you!Ljubo! read more

Ben Jerrys Wants to Make CBDInfused Ice Cream—Once Its Legal

Besides, orally consuming CBD is less effective than inhaling it.But Ben & Jerry’s isn’t just chasing a trend.The confectionary plans to use high-quality, sustainably sourced CBD (among other ingredients) from its home state of Vermont.“After all, values-led sourcing is an important part of our process when we churn up new ice cream innovations,” according to an announcement.“We aspire to love our fans more than they love us and we want to give them what they’re looking for in a fun, Ben & Jerry’s way,” McCarthy added.Consumers can sign up online for updates on the journey to a CBD-infused pint.More on Geek.com:Ben & Jerry’s Are Making Ice Cream to Help Save the World‘Stranger Things’ Ice Cream Flavors Are Coming to Baskin-RobbinsTwo Teens Create the Ultimate Hack for Messy Ice Cream Cones No stranger to groovy flavors, Ben & Jerry’s this week unveiled its latest creation: CBD-infused ice cream.Cannabidiol (CBD), the non-psychoactive compound in cannabis and hemp products, has been making headlines for its perceived health benefits.Now, the maker of my favorite frozen dessert (Cherry Garcia froyo, of course) is hopping on the bandwagon.While the FDA currently prohibits adding CBD to food and beverages, today’s public hearing on its legalization could incite change.“We’re doing this for our fans,” Ben & Jerry’s CEO Matthew McCarthy said in a statement.This campaign is more than a simple marketing ploy to take advantage of the cannabinoid’s growing popularity.

GTA San Andreas Steam update breaks save games removes 17 music tracks

first_imgRockstar has released an update for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on Steam, and it’s causing issues for some players of the game, most notably rendering save games unusable.The update mirrors those released for the Xbox 360 and mobile versions of the game. It adds support for XInput controllers, including the Xbox 360 controller, and mouse steering is now enabled by default allowing for vehicles to be turned with a mouse movement. However, the biggest change is the removal of 17 music tracks.Such is the state of music licensing, a game released several years ago and still supported or ported may no longer be able to use the music it originally shipped with. That seems to be the case for San Andreas, with Rockstar choosing to remove certain tracks rather than negotiate and pay a new licensing fee for them. The knock-on effect of that decision seems to be that save games made before the update was applied don’t load, they instead trigger a new game.The good news is, the issue has been unofficially solved thanks to the work of gtaforums.com moderator Silent. You can download the SilentPatch, which allows old save games to work again as well as fixing other issues the game update introduced (aspect ratios, locked 30fps gameplay, mouse locking during play).Music licensing is always causing problems in gaming, and it’s the reason a number of games haven’t appeared on digital download stores, e.g. previous generation PlayStation games on PSN. That’s unfortunate, and ultimately suggests that a music license should exist that is retained for the entire life of a game and its inevitable multiple re-releases/ports. But from the music industry’s perspective, there’s no profit in agreeing to do that.last_img read more

Two slum children from Kolkata seek glory in World Dragonboat Cships

first_imgKolkata: Two young aspiring rowers from a slum area here, Afridi Ali and Rejayan Karim have been named in the junior India team for the upcoming 14th World Dragonboat Championships in Pattaya from August 20-25. Hailing from the slums of Rajarhat-Newton area in the eastern suburbs of the city, the duo were among the 10-odd boys who were handpicked by the Bengal Watersports Federation during the state kayaking championship four years ago. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataTill then, they were doing some small jobs like helping out visitors for kayaking or guarding the gate at the New Town Eco Park, a major tourist destination of the city. “They all looked strong, both physically and mentally. But they were poverty-stricken and were ready to do anything for a full square meal,” founder of Bengal Watersports Federation Shakil Ahmed told PTI. They started winning against many established rowers from the senior category as Ahmed, who is also a Bengal rowing coach, decided to take them under his wings at the Lake Club. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in state Initially, they were little hesitant to take up rowing on a full time basis as it would render them jobless which their families could ill-afford. “I spoke to their families individually and told them that I would take after their daily needs. Of all of them, Afridi’s condition was worse so I decided to keep him at my house and since then he’s with me like a family member,” Shakil, a gold medallist in the Asia Cup 2 Rowing Championships in Singapore 2016, said. The duo began a success story not only for themselves but for their little known Jatragachi Pranabananda High School which has won the junior titles three years on the trot in the All-India School Regatta, ending the dominance of the elite schools. “They (the rowers) have been an inspiration for the entire school. Now many from the school wants to become a rower. We have recently feliciated them,” principal of Jatragachi Pranabananda High School Ashish Chatterjee said. Close to 20 rowers from the school has followed the footsteps of Ali and Karim. Their day starts as early as 4.30am as all of them catch a bus from New Town to Ravindra Sarovar lake — a ride that takes more than an hour. “We reach the lake by 6.630am, do our training, have breakfast and go to school by 12 noon. Our school has been cooperating with us since we have started winning,” Karim said, excited to represent India for the first time. “There were rowers from La Martiniere For Boys, South Point, St Thomas and many other top schools. They all speak in English and come in swanky cars. They did not like us initially as we had started beating them but after a year or so we become good friends. We talk and chat with them regularly,” Karim said. The 38-member India team also has three rowers from the La Martiniere For Boys, and one each from South Point and St Thomas. The team, in three categories of Under-18, Under-24 and Open, will have a camp at the Lake Club before flying off to Thailand. Dragonboat is part of the canoe sport which featured in the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta-Palembang.last_img read more

The new scale reportedly allows greater accessibility for patients and increased portability and accuracy for healthcare professionals in the geriatric and bariatric fields.The extra-wide 30-inch by 25-inch, low-profile platform makes it suited for patients who have trouble stepping up and onto traditional physician scales. The scale features an automatic body mass index (BMI) calculation and RS-232 and USB outputs, which accommodate most electronic medical record (EMR) applications. The durable, yet portable, unit can be easily broken down into three modules – the display, the platform (which houses the load cell), and the pillar – and is equipped with casters for easy mobility. The PH-740 also features a mechanical height rod, allowing patients height to be taken the same time as weight. Other features include a large 2-line LCD display and an instant-on capability.

Russian missile maker MH17 shot down by Ukrainian missile

first_img 5 things to look for when selecting an ophthalmologist New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Mikhail Malyshevsky, an adviser to the director general of the missile maker, state-controlled Almaz-Antei consortium, said at a news conference Tuesday that its analysis was based on photographs of the wreckage available to the public. He said the holes in the plane’s parts were consistent with a specific type of Buk missile and its warhead.Each of the Buk subtypes has its warhead rigged with shrapnel of a specific shape. This variation of the missile is in the Ukrainian military arsenals, but not in the Russian, said Almaz-Antei director Yan Novikov.Novikov said that in 2005 when Ukraine contacted the consortium regarding the maintenance of its Buk systems, it had 991 such missiles.Rebels have staunchly denied even possessing a functioning Buk missile launcher at the time that MH17 was brought down, although one was seen in separatist-controlled Snizhne by AP reporters a few hours before the plane crashed.Russian officials and state media have previously said they suspect the airline was shot down by a Ukrainian warplane.“First they said it wasn’t a Buk missile. Now, suddenly, they’re saying it is but it wasn’t them. So I just think the credibility is not 100 percent here on that,” said U.S. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf in Washington. Ukrainian military spokesman Vladislav Seleznev was quoted by the Interfax news agency as saying Tuesday that photos and video materials at the time documented the presence of a Buk on the rebel-held territory.Novikov and Malyshevsky said that the company’s analysis of shrapnel impact on the plane’s fragments allowed it to pinpoint the location of the missile launcher, which they said was placed near the town of Zaroshenske. A missile launched from Snizhne would have incurred different damage, they said.The Almaz-Antei officials stopped short of directly blaming Ukraine for shooting down the plane, but their statements hinted at that.A spokesman for the Dutch Safety Board, which is investigating the crash, declined to comment on the consortium’s statement. The Dutch report is expected in October.___Mike Corder in The Hague and Bradley Klapper in Washington contributed to this report.Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

It was a quick and disappointing fall for the form

first_imgIt was a quick and disappointing fall for the former Virginia Tech star who was taken with the 38th pick in the draft.“I think you always want to try to always give the player the benefit of the doubt and try to see the process through,” Cardinals GM Steve Keim told Doug and Wolf on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM Tuesday. “He was bit early with the injury bug, then he came back and he was healthy.“Quite frankly, Bruce and his staff gave him several opportunities last season, and quite frankly, he was outperformed by some of the younger backs on our roster.”Williams, 24, appeared in just five games for the Cardinals, carrying the ball 58 times for 164 yards. He also caught seven passes for 44 yards. But from the time he ruptured the patella tendon in his right knee as a rookie in the preseason to the following year when he suffered a season-ending shoulder injury, he could just never get on track in the desert. He missed a lot of training camp last season and only appeared in one preseason game, which did nothing to endear himself to the new coaching staff. It also didn’t help that the team signing Rashard Mendenhall and drafted a pair of running backs last season, all of whom saw action instead of Williams. Your browser does not support the audio element. “You had guys like Andre Ellington and Stepfan Taylor come in and play as well as they did, and Rashard still had some gas left in the tank,” Keim said. “He just couldn’t get on the field, and really, in my mind, was just outperformed when it was all said and done.” Comments   Share   Ryan Williams’ unlucky career as an Arizona Cardinal came to an end last week when the team released him. The move was at the same time both surprising and expected. On one hand, Williams was a second-round pick in 2011 who had shown flashes of being a quality running back. On the other hand, though, he had battled injuries his first two seasons and was inactive for all 16 games in 2013. Finally, the team decided it was time for both sides to move on from one another. Williams has since signed with the Dallas Cowboys.
