It was the best match I’ve ever played: Simona Halep after maiden Wimbledon win

first_imgSimona Halep joined the list of tennis royalty at Wimbledon on Saturday, then got a bit star struck at meeting the real thing.Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, watched from the front row of the Royal Box on Centre Court as Halep beat seven-time Wimbledon champion Serena Williams 6-2, 6-2 in the women’s singles final.And their presence hardly went unnoticed.”It was an extra boost when I saw all of them there, the royal family,” said Halep, who had said before the final that she hoped Kate a Wimbledon regular would be there. “It was an honor to play in front of her.”Both duchesses also attended last year’s final, when Williams lost to Angelique Kerber. This time they were joined by Kate’s sister, Pippa Matthews, while British Prime Minister Theresa May also sat a few seats away.”It was the best match. I have worked a lot for this moment. It’s an honour to play in front of the Royal Box. I don’t have the words to explain.”I had nerves. My stomach was not well before the match, but I came on court and gave my best. It’s something special and I’ll never forget this day. It’s my mum’s dream. When I was 10, 12 years old, she said I had to play the final of Wimbledon. I have worked a lot to change my game, to be able to win matches on grass. It was an amazing tournament and I can’t wait to come back. It’s been an honour,” added Halep.advertisementFor Meghan, the outcome of the match was probably not the one she had been hoping for. She is good friends with Williams, who attended her wedding to Prince Harry last year, and also watched the American play her second-round match on No. 1 Court last week.Meghan applauded Williams enthusiastically as she received her runner-up trophy, and the 23-time Grand Slam singles champion said she can rely on the duchess for support even in bad moments.”Just having her in general as a friend is great. She’s such a great friend and a great person as well. Always positive no matter what,” Williams said. “She, too, was happy for Simona. She saw she played unbelievable. That’s just the kind of person she is.”On Halep she said: “She literally played out of her mind. It was a little bit deer in the headlights for me. Whenever a player plays like that you just have to take your hat off. I love coming out here, playing in front of you guys. It’s literally a joy.”In her on-court interview immediately after the match ended, Halep gushed when thanking the royals for coming out. And that was before she was told that as the new champion, she’d get to meet them after.”That’s amazing. I didn’t know that,” said the Romanian, who clinched her first Wimbledon title. “It’s even more special now.”TV cameras captured that meeting minutes later, with Halep giving a deep curtsy as she was introduced to Kate before heading out to the balcony to show off her trophy to fans outside.”You played an incredible game,” Kate said. “It was really, really impressive, so congratulations.”JUNIOR CHAMPIONDaria Snigur of Ukraine won the junior girls’ title at Wimbledon, beating Alexa Noel of the United States 6-4, 6-4.Snigur trailed 4-1 in the opening set before winning five straight games, then came from 3-0 down in the second set.”I can’t believe it,” Snigur said. “I worked hard every day for this trophy. It’s incredible.”The match was played on No. 1 Court, the second biggest stadium at the All England Club, and Snigur said the size of the venue made her “really scared” when she walked out.The Wimbledon win is Snigur’s first major title.Also Read | Simona Halep downs Serena Williams in one-sided final for maiden Wimbledon titleAlso Read | This kid was reading a book as Federer beat Nadal in Wimbledon classic.

UN appoints rockandroll icon Annie Lennox to spotlight toll of HIV on

2 June 2010Scottish singer, songwriter and women’s activist Annie Lennox will use her voice to speak out for women and girls affected by HIV in her new role as International Goodwill Ambassador for the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS). Scottish singer, songwriter and women’s activist Annie Lennox will use her voice to speak out for women and girls affected by HIV in her new role as International Goodwill Ambassador for the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS). “I am sure with her incredible passion and presence, she will raise awareness of the terrible toll HIV has taken on women and girls,” said UNAIDS Executive Director Michel Sidibé. “With her amazing energy, she will make sure international, national and community leaders challenge the injustice of gender inequality,” he added.As an activist and campaigner, Ms. Lennox has worked with numerous organizations on issues of social justice. In October 2007, she launched her own “SING” campaign, working to raise awareness and support for women and children affected by the AIDS pandemic in southern Africa. The award-winning singer has also supported UNAIDS by participating in the March 2010 launch of a five-year action plan aimed at ending gender inequalities and human rights violations. In the Agenda for Accelerated Country Action for Women, Girls, Gender Equality and HIV (2010-2014), the UN teams up with governments, civil society and development partners to address gender inequalities and human rights violations that put women and girls at risk for HIV infection. More than 33.4 million people have been living with HIV worldwide since December 2008, half of them women. In sub-Saharan Africa, 60 per cent of people living with HIV are women. “The daily brutality faced by millions of women and girls is unacceptable,” said Ms. Lennox. “If we are to end the cycle of human devastation triggered by the AIDS epidemic, we must address the rights of women and girls and challenge their second class citizen status, which puts them at greater risk of HIV.” Ms. Lennox will be participating, in her new role as International Goodwill Ambassador, at the Women Deliver 2010 conference and the 2010 Global Business Coalition conference, both to be held in Washington next week. read more

Football Buckeye defense is nuts preparing for Indiana

OSU redshirt sophomore cornerback Marshon Lattimore knocks the ball out of the hands of a Rutgers player during the Buckeyes game on Oct. 2. The Buckeyes won 58-0. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorUrban Meyer is a fan of  big, mobile quarterbacks, running the ball and defenses that do not give an inch. This season, the Ohio State coach has all three elements, with the defensive unit quite possibly being the most impressive part of the team.Against Rutgers, the Silver Bullets simply dominated. Surrendering just 116 total yards, OSU held Rutgers to its worst completion percentage this season, at just 18.75 percent. The only real offense given up by the Buckeyes on Saturday came courtesy of Rutgers junior running back Robert Martin, who produced 40 yards on 13 carries. Overall, OSU surrendered an average of 2.2 yards per carry, its best number this season.Meyer loves to play defensive football, and his team has given him record-setting defensive football this season. After a few slow offensive starts at the beginning of each game, he said the key has been the play of his defense, which has kept the Buckeyes in every game.“You know, any time you have great defense that’s — just the way the game of football is, you have great defense, thing are going to get usually rolling for you at some point,” Meyer said. “Even if you struggle a little bit.”Although a statement performance on the defensive side of the ball has the Buckeyes feeling well about their remaining Big Ten opponents, Indiana is not a team to sleep on. Redshirt junior quarterback Richard Lagow is second in the Big Ten with 1,278 passing yards, and leads the conference in terms of yards per attempt among other starting quarterbacks.In the backfield, junior Devine Redding is off to a fast start, picking up 413 yards rushing, averaging 5 yards per carry, but has failed to find the endzone. OSU has yet to surrender a rushing touchdown this season.Off to a 3-1 start, Indiana is coming off a barn-burner matchup against then-No. 17 Michigan State. The Hoosiers stunned the Spartans in overtime, picking up their third win of the season.Redshirt junior linebacker Chris Worley said he is not shocked the Hoosiers won. In the mind of Worley, it was all about the skill level of each team.“If both teams play hard, the best team should win on Saturdays,” Worley said. “I think both teams played hard, and the best team won.”Indiana presents a dynamic attack, which promotes an interesting challenge to the Buckeyes. Allowing just 9.0 points per game, OSU has one of the best defenses in the nation, which is exactly why OSU defensive coordinator Luke Fickell feels his unit is ready for the test of the Hoosiers.“We talk about objectives all the time, and objectives are things we measure every single day, every week,” Fickell said. “We try to leave the goals and the big long-term things until the end of the year. We know we’re are on the right path, we know we gotta continue to improve, but we like where we are right now.”OSU sacked Rutgers redshirt junior Chris Laviano three times, with three different players dragging down the quarterback. Redshirt junior Tyquan Lewis, redshirt freshman Robert Landers and freshman Nick Bosa all broke through the offensive line and took down Laviano.So far, Lewis and Bosa have two sacks each this season, while Landers picked up the first sack of his OSU career.For the first time this season, OSU’s defense failed to record a turnover. Incredibly, Rutgers is the first offense this season to prevent the Buckeyes from scoring a defensive touchdown.Indiana ranks as one of the worst in the nation in interceptions thrown per game, giving up nearly two picks per game. Although the Hoosiers give up plenty of picks and OSU missed out on forcing a turnover Saturday, redshirt sophomore cornerback Marshon Lattimore said grabbing another interception is not the goal.“I feel like if you’re too thirsty to get an interception, that’s when things go bad, so I’m just going to continue to play my technique and if it comes, it comes,” Lattimore said.Looking to continue their dominance on defense, the Buckeyes will face Lagow, Redding and the rest of the Hoosiers on Saturday in Ohio Stadium at 3:30 p.m. in their second Big Ten game of the season. read more

Hausse des océans la consommation deau serait en partie responsable

first_imgHausse des océans : la consommation d’eau serait en partie responsableUne étude publiée hier par des climatologues révèle que l’utilisation excessive des ressources en eau par les humains est responsable d’une grande partie de la hausse du niveau des océans constatée au cours des dernières décennies.Les mers et océans ont augmenté de 1,8 millimètre par an entre 1961 et 2003, selon les relevés effectués le long des côtes par les marégraphes. Une hausse qui pose de nombreuses questions aux scientifiques et notamment la part jouée par le réchauffement climatique dans ce phénomène.  Dans son rapport de 2007, le Groupe d’experts intergouvernemental sur l’évolution du climat (GIEC) avait abouti à une hausse de 1,1 millimètre sur cette période, principalement sous l’effet de la “dilatation thermique des océans”, autrement dit le fait que l’eau chaude occupe un volume plus important que l’eau froide, mais aussi sous l’effet de la fonte des glaciers et des calottes polaires.À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?Comparé aux données obtenues, il restait donc encore une hausse d’environ 0,7 mm par an à expliquer, ce qui avait d’ailleurs conduit de nombreux chercheurs à s’interroger sur la validité de leurs calculs. Aujourd’hui, une étude publiée dans la revue britannique Nature Geoscience révèle ainsi que cette hausse serait liée à l’eau extraite des nappes phréatiques et des lacs pour remplir les besoins de la consommation humaine. En effet, l’équipe de Yadu Pokhrei de l’Université de Tokyo, auteur de l’étude, explique que dans un premier temps l’eau prélevée va entraîner un très léger recul du niveau des océans. Mais dans un second temps, qu’elle soit consommée ou qu’elle s’évapore, l’eau finit dans la majorité des cas par aboutir de nouveau dans les océans. “Au total, l’utilisation irraisonnée de l’eau souterraine, sa captation dans des réservoirs artificiels, l’impact du changement climatique dans les réserves d’eau terrestres et les pertes en eau dans les bassins fermés [lacs et mers intérieures] ont contribué à une hausse du niveau de la mer de 0,77 millimètre par an en moyenne entre 1961 et 2003, soit environ 42% de la hausse observée”, estime l’étude relayée par l’AFP. Parallèlement, le Giec a estimé en 2007 que le niveau des océans augmenterait de 18 à 59 centimètres d’ici la fin du XXIe siècle mais sans prendre en compte l’impact potentiel de la fonte des glaces si le réchauffement se poursuit.

Heres what Sharwanand says about Telugu remake of 96 and its release

first_imgActor Sharwanand is pretty much happy with the positive response Ranarangam is receiving at the box office and all the love his fans are showering on him. Directed by Sudheer Varma, the film is produced by Suryadevara Naga Vamsi under Sithara Entertainments banner and has Kajal Aggarwal and Kalyani Priyadarshan as the leading ladies.Sharwanand had a lot of expectations on Padi Padi Leche Manasu. But when tanked at the box office, which is something that he didn’t expect, the actor started looking for better scripts.But much before Padi Padi… Sharwa agreed to be part of Ranarangam and has been prepping for it since two years. “I am glad that the audiences have liked the film. The whole team has worked hard for two years and now, finally, we are enjoying the fruit of it. I am happy and satisfied as our efforts are being appreciated by the audience,” he said. PR HandoutSharwanand, met with an accident a couple of months ago, while shooting for 96 and underwent a shoulder surgery. He has recovered completely now and is doing really well. “I am glad that I could complete Ranarangam before meeting with the accident. There are a lot of action scenes in the film and it wouldn’t have been possible to do with an injured shoulder. The completion of the film would have taken some more time then,” he said.Sharwanand is currently busy shooting for the Telugu remake of Tamil blockbuster 96, which has Vijay Sethupathi and Trisha. In Telugu, Sharwanand and Samantha Akkineni are playing the lead roles. The film is being directed by Prem Kumar, the man who directed the Tamil version.The shooting of the film is happening at a brisk pace in Hyderabad and other cities. Almost 70 per cent of the film has been completed and Sharwa is pretty happy with the way the film is shaping up.”We are hoping to release the film later this year. If the formalities remain unfinished by the end of the year, it will be released earlier next year. Have shaved my beard now, after completing shooting for the scenes that need beard. All of us are looking forward to the release of the film just like the audience,” he added.The whole team of Ranarangam is happy with the number the film is making at the box office and so is Sharwanand who has a film called Sreekaram in his kitty as well.last_img read more

Formal trial in Holey Artisan attack case begins

first_imgThe formal trial in the Holey Artisan cafe attack case began on Monday with the deposition of a prosecution witness before a tribunal in Dhaka.Dhaka anti-terrorism special tribunal judge Mohammad Mujibur Rahman partially recorded the testimony of Ripon Kumar Das and adjourned the recording of deposition for Tuesday.After framing charges against eight ‘militants’ in the case, the tribunal on 26 November fixed 3 December for recording the statements of witnesses in the case.Of the eight accused, six are now in jail while two others have been on the run.The six accused are Jahangir Alam alias Rajib Gandhi, Mahmudul Hasan Mijan, Sohel Mahfuz, Rashidul Islam alias Ryash, Boro Mijan and Hadisur Rahman Sagor.The two absconding accused are Mamunur Rashid Ripon and Shariful Islam Khaled.On 23 July, the police pressed charges against eight alleged militants in the Holey Artisan cafe attack case.Hasnat Karim, a North South University teacher who was one of the hostages and later detained, was acquitted of the charges since there was no evidence of his complicity with the attack, according to the police.The terrorist attack that shattered the country and drew global attention, claimed lives of 22 people — nine Italians, seven Japanese, one Indian, one Bangladeshi-born American and two Bangladeshis along with two police officers — on 1 July 2016.A total 21 people were identified to be behind the attack. Among them, 13 were killed in gunfights at different times.last_img read more

Misconduct Allegations Continue to Dog BPD

first_imgBy Sean Yoes, AFRO Baltimore Editor, syoes@afro.comMore allegations of police misconduct are being aimed again at the beleaguered Baltimore Police Department (BPD). The latest charges are being leveled by Baltimore’s Civilian Review Board (CRB) in reference to the case of Keith Davis, Jr.This week, the CRB said Davis was wrongfully charged after being shot by police officers. He is currently in jail on handgun charges and is facing a murder charge connected to the June 2015 shooting death of Kevin Jones, a security guard at Pimlico Race Course in Northwest Baltimore. Davis was shot hours later by Baltimore police after allegedly running from the scene of a car crash, according to the Baltimore City State’s Attorney’s Office.The Baltimore Civilian Review Board says the Baltimore Police Department, headed by Commissioner Darryl Desousa (standing behind Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh), wrongfully charged Keith Davis. (Courtesy photo)However, the CRB, after studying the Davis case for nearly two years, concluded in a report released April 10, that two BPD officers should be terminated and two others suspended connected to the Davis case. The report also indicates all the bullets found at the scene of the shooting were fired by police and a gun police said had Davis’ prints on it was never fired. The CRB report also notes inconsistencies in police testimony and internal affairs interviews.Davis’ wife, Kelly, has maintained her husband’s innocence from the beginning.“The ink is holding officers accountable saying that they did something so egregious on that day that they are calling for them to be terminated,” said Kelly Davis during a press conference, as she held the CRB report. “This is the ink that we’ve been waiting for. The fight does not stop until my husband crosses that threshold of my home.”Melba Saunders, of the State’s Attorney’s Office released a statement concerning the Davis case and the CRB report. “The Civilian Review Board is an important body to help bridge the gap of community distrust in the justice system. However, the board’s findings are separate and apart from the criminal proceedings currently pending against the defendant, for which we cannot comment. Therefore, the criminal investigation into the alleged actions of the defendant has no correlation with the use of force applied by the police in the apprehension of him,” Saunders stated.Jill Carter, director of the Baltimore Office of Civil Rights, which oversees the CRB, told the AFRO that out of 263 complaints considered by the CRB, 62 were sustained by the board and out of those 62, only two were upheld by the BPD.“I’m hoping this will highlight the need of the CRB to strengthen its authority,” Carter said.“When police have been allowed to police themselves, it has been a colossal failure.”Davis is scheduled to head to court for the murder charge next month.last_img read more

4000yrold Lost City Discovered – Gateway to Mesopotamias First Great Empire

first_imgA team of French archaeologists has discovered the remnants of an ancient lost city at Kunara, close to the Zagros mountains, in present-day Iraqi Kurdistan. At the time the city would have stood on a strategically-important position, “at the gates” of the Akkadian Empire, which is ancient Mesopotamia’s first grandiose empire, archaeologists said.According to the French team, the recently found city likely belonged to the mountainous pre-Iranian people known as the Lullubi. Dated to the latter part of the 3rd millennium BC, the so far unnamed city may have even served as the capital of the Lullubi.Territory of the Lullubi in the Mesopotamia area. Photo by Jolle CC BY-SA 4.0In ancient Mesopotamian scriptures, these mysterious people from the mountains are referred to as barbarians. A limestone artifact depicting one of the Akkadian rulers, Naram-Sin, displayed at the Louvre Museum, shows how he cherishes his victory over the Lullubi. Only a few other mentions in literature exist about these people, perhaps until now. According findings, published in the journal of the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) on March 19, 2019, six excavation campaigns were carried out on the site of Kunara, between 2012 and 2018.AdChoices广告inRead invented by TeadsKing Anubanini of Lullubi, holding an axe and a bow, trampling a foe.

Photo by Koorosh Nozad Tehrani CC BY-SA 2.0Stone foundations of considerable size found both in the upper and lower excavation layers have been dated to circa 2,200 BC. Among the findings are also a number of clay tablets, containing small cuneiform signs; each clay retaining a rectangular form and extending about four inches on the sides. This suggests the Lullubi, just like other advanced civilizations of ancient Mesopotamia, were well versed with literacy needed for trading.Related Video: Drone captures amazing abandoned mountain top villageCNRS cuneiform specialist Philippe Clancier said in a statement that the scribes who created the tablets “had a firm grasp of Akkadian and Sumerian writing, as well as that of their Mesopotamian neighbors.” Some of the tablets were found to provide information about large repositories which would have supported the city’s extensive agricultural activities. An irrigation system was also in place to aid the growth of crops.An Akkadian inscriptionMore than that, the tablets used a so far unregistered unit of measurement, different from the Mesopotamian gur. The Lullubi rather used a unit of their own to detail trading, a strong indication they functioned independently. The mighty Akkadians overshadowed the Lullubi, however. But as the leading archaeologist on the team, Aline Tenu, said in a statement, “the city of Kunara provides new elements regarding a hitherto unknown people that has remained at the periphery of Mesopotamian studies.”Akkadian Empire soldiers on the Victory Stele of Naram-Sin, circa 2250 BC. Photo by Rama CC BY-SA 2.0 frThe excavations of the Kunara site are widening the perspectives. The occupants of the lost city likely maintained strong economic relationships with regions remote to them — to the north toward Anatolia and beyond to the Caucasus region, and to the east where the ancient Iranians extended.A variety of artifacts such as stone tools carved from obsidian, carnelian, and basalt suggest the possibility the city indeed connected to those far-flung territories.“The city must have even been fairly prosperous, as rare stones such as obsidian were used to produce entirely commonplace tools,” said Tenu.Caucasus.

Jobless figures plunge as government goes hard on undeclared labour

first_imgThe government’s pledge to clamp down on undeclared labour appears to have helped reduce the number of registered unemployed considerably last month, the latest figures released by the statistical service show.The number of registered unemployed fell by 3,052 in September to 27,951 compared to the month before and 18 per cent compared to the respective month of 2016, Cystat said in a statement on its website on Wednesday. The reduction in unemployment matches the figure of new registrations of workers with the Social Insurance Service ahead of a government deadline that expired on September 3.The seasonally adjusted reduction of the number of registered unemployed last month was 694 compared to August and 5,430 compared to September 2016, Cystat said.Last month, the number of registered jobless dropped in the area of public administration by 1,208 compared to a year before, by 1,207 in construction, 1,013 in trade, 514 in financial and insurance, 475 in manufacturing and 457 in newcomers, Cystat said. The number of registered unemployed in September is the lowest since November 2011, the year in which the Cypriot government was shut out of financial markets and an explosion knocked out the Vassilikos power plant, causing island-wide outages affecting economic activity.On August 30, Andreas Apostolou, a senior labour relations inspector at the Ministry of Labour and Social Insurance said that the number of workers registered with social insurance ahead of a government deadline expiring on September 3, was 3,100.
