Two days after resuming political activities, Tej Pratap Yadav, the elder son of jailed Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad, on Tuesday met his father and claimed that he was advised to “take the party forward” by him. The over two-hour meeting between the two took place at the Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences, where the RJD chief is undergoing treatment for various ailments after being convicted in fodder scam cases. “It was a long time since I met my father. I became emotional. I love him. My father is my God — Krishna, Vishnu and Mahadev,” Mr. Yadav said. He claimed that the RJD chief had asked him “to take the party forward”, reiterating that he saw Tejashwi as “Arjuna”.

Berlin: Managerless Bayern Munich went second in the Bundesliga on Saturday with a 4-0 romp at Fortuna Duesseldorf as leaders Borussia Moenchengladbach suffered a shock 2-0 defeat at Union Berlin.Bayern’s interim coach Hansi Flick enjoyed his third straight win since Niko Kovac was sacked earlier this month as Munich moved to within a point of Gladbach. A top-of-the-table showdown beckons in a fortnight when Gladbach host Bayern at Borussia Park.RB Leipzig can draw level on 24 points with Bayern if they win at home to strugglers Cologne later on Saturday evening.Bayern routed Dusseldorf with goals by Philippe Coutinho, Serge Gnabry, Benjamin Pavard and Coretin Tolisso, with Robert Lewandowski failing to score in a league game for the first time this season and ending his record 11-match run.However it was the Poland forward who forced a corner from which Pavard scored the opening goal after 11 minutes.His France team-mate Tolisso then doubled the lead in the 27th minute after Duesseldorf’s US international Zack Steffen surrendered possession.Serge Gnabry, who scored a hat-trick in Germany’s 6-1 thrashing of Northern Ireland in mid-week, continued his goal-scoring run when he was presented with a simple tap-in by Thomas Mueller seven minutes later.Lewandowski turned provider again with the 70th-minute cross which Coutinho swept into the net to complete the rout.In Berlin, Gladbach suffered their third defeat this season as they became the latest top six club to lose to Union.Having already beaten Dortmund and Freiburg this season at their Alten Foersterei stadium, Union took the lead with 15 minutes gone when Nigeria striker Anthony Ujah headed home a cross.Union ensured their fourth straight league win in stoppage time when winger Julian Ryerson floated in a cross, which deflected off a Gladbach defender to present Swedish striker Sebastian Andersson with an easy header to round off a fine win.Schalke climbed to fourth as striker Benito Raman and midfielder Amine Harit scored their goals in a 2-1 win at Werder Bremen, whose Japanese striker Yuya Osako grabbed a late consolation.Freiburg are third despite only drawing 1-1 at ninth-placed Leverkusen.The visitors took the lead after only five minutes when forward Lucas Hoeler headed home at the far post after slipping his marker.But France Under-21 striker Moussa Diaby levelled on his first start for Leverkusen since joining from Paris Saint-Germain when he slotted home from 20 metres out midway through the first half.Despite playing with 10 men for the entire second-half, mid-table Wolfsburg managed a 2-0 win at Eintracht Frankfurt.Their goals came from towering Dutch striker Wout Weghorst and Brazilian forward Joao Victor despite losing defender Marcel Tisserand at the end of the first-half for a second bookable offence. read more
Controversial all-rounder Glenn Maxwell could still find himself on the outer in Australia’s second one-day international against New Zealand on Tuesday.Darren Lehmann’s embattled side coasted to a 68-run victory against the visitors in the first game in Sydney on Sunday, with captain Steve Smith scoring 164 and combining in a 127-run partnership with all-rounder Travis Head (52).Maxwell, however, was not selected for the game and was fined by the team for comments he made beforehand to express how “painful” it had been for him to bat behind wicketkeeper Wade for Victoria.The team’s performance on Sunday, ending a five-match losing streak in the one-day format, probably meant that Maxwell could again find himself on the outer, which Head suggested.”When you win like we did yesterday, I’m not expecting it to change too much,” Head told reporters in Canberra on Monday. “(But) it’s not my job to do that. I get told where I’m put and try to perform.”Head said despite his own role in the victory and having played 13 of the side’s 16 one-dayers since his debut against West Indies in June, he was taking nothing for granted, especially since he and Maxwell were both off-spinning all-rounders.”The pressure is always on in the side. In any Australian cricket side, you’ve probably got five guys that are banging down the door that aren’t in the squad,” Head added.”The competition for spots is always on. And when you’re in the side, it’s equally as hard to stay in it. You have to be performing, but I am definitely not feeling comfortable.advertisement”I’m happy with the performance but was disappointed to have got out and done all that hard work having got to 50 and helped build that partnership.”If I can keep performing then I can stay in the side and that’s what I hope to do.” read more

Peyton Manning is the only five-time MVP in NFL history, one of the faces of the league and, at 39, the oldest starting quarterback to lead a team to the Super Bowl.Slowed by age and injury, he is no longer the record-breaking passer he once was. Most folks figure Manning’s fourth Super Sunday appearance will be his last game as a pro.Cam Newton is at the opposite end of his career, just 26, making his debut in the big game. He also is expected to earn MVP honors for the first time, part of a new breed of dual-threat QBs as good at running as they are at throwing.For the next two weeks, until Manning’s AFC champion Denver Broncos (14-4) play Newton’s NFC champion Carolina Panthers (17-1) for the Lombardi Trophy in Santa Clara, California, on Feb. 7, most of the focus will be on the two quarterbacks who were No. 1 overall draft picks 13 years apart.“Oh, wow,” said Newton, whose Panthers opened as 4-point favorites with most bookmakers. “Playing ‘The Sheriff.’”That is a reference to Manning, who is 1-2 in past Super Bowls. He won a championship with the Indianapolis Colts in 2007, lost with the Colts in 2010, and lost again with the Broncos in 2014.But this is a different version of Manning.Yes, he’s still as good as anyone at diagnosing defenses and changing things up — or appearing to, anyway — at the line of scrimmage.Yes, he’s still out there yelling “Omaha!”“He most certainly is a Hall of Famer,” Panthers coach Ron Rivera said.But Manning is not quite as capable as he was, once upon a time, when it comes to putting the football exactly where he wants it, especially on deep routes.This has hardly been a record-setting season for Manning — or, until now, one worth remembering. Overall, the bad far outweighed the good, including one game with a passer rating of 0.0, 17 interceptions to only nine touchdown passes in the regular season, being sidelined for six weeks with a series of injuries, getting relegated to backup duty in the NFL for the first time, and vehemently denying a report linking Manning’s wife to the banned drug HGH.“My role has been different and my contributions are different,” Manning said. “But I’m fortunate and grateful that I have the opportunity to contribute still, in some way. And it’s a great honor to be going back to the Super Bowl.”Here are some of the other story lines for the 50th Super Bowl, which will be Denver’s record-tying eighth and Carolina’s second:SUPERMAN: Newton threw for 335 yards and two TDs, and he ran for 47 yards and a pair of scores, leading Carolina past the Arizona Cardinals 49-15 in the NFC title game Sunday night. It was the type of dynamic performance he put in all season, the sort of promise he showed while winning a Heisman Trophy in college at Auburn. “I keep saying it: We’re not finished. We’re not finished,” Newton said.MILLER TIME: Broncos linebacker Von Miller was terrific Sunday, getting 2 1/2 sacks and an interception in a 20-18 victory over Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in the AFC title game. “I wanted to do it for Peyton,” said Miller, who was injured and missed Denver’s loss to Seattle in the 2014 Super Bowl.DOMINANT DEFENSES: Both of these teams excel at defense. The Broncos led the NFL with 52 sacks and allowed a league-low 283.1 yards per game, then made life difficult as can be for Brady on Sunday, knocking him to the ground over and over. No one forced more turnovers than the Panthers, and only five clubs gave up fewer points (the Broncos were one, naturally). Against Arizona, Carolina produced seven takeaways.CAROLINA’S STARTS: If the Panthers are able to get off to the sort of start they’ve made commonplace lately, they might not even give the Broncos a chance to make a game of it. In their two games this postseason, Carolina outscored its opponents 55-7 in the first half. That includes leads of 17-0 after one quarter and 24-7 after two against Arizona. “We wanted to start fast,” Newton said. “We wanted to keep the pressure on.”INJURIES: Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis said he broke his right forearm against Arizona — “I knew something was wrong,” he said — but sounded like someone who plans to play in the Super Bowl. The Broncos, meanwhile, lost both of their starting safeties — T.J. Ward and Darian Stewart — to injuries during Sunday’s game.___HOWARD FENDRICH, AP Pro Football WriterTweetPinShare0 Shares read more
Nantes 0 Paris Saint-Germain 1: Match-winner Di Maria not made to rue wild miss Dom Farrell Last updated 1 year ago 06:01 1/15/18 Getty Images Paris Saint-Germain benefitted from a harsh offside call against Nantes, who finished their 1-0 defeat with a bizarre sending off. Angel Di Maria’s goal was enough for a 1-0 Paris Saint-Germain win at Nantes but he also had the misfortune of producing one of the misses of the season.Unai Emery’s men now sit 11 points clear at the top of the table and made light of Neymar’s absence due to a rib injury by finding an early opener.Edinson Cavani, back in the side following his unauthorised late return from holiday, laid on the chance for Di Maria, who made no mistake – although the same could not be said when he blazed off target from six yards.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player The ex-Real Madrid man and his colleagues were grateful when Emiliano Sala had a header ruled out. Two Nantes players were in offside positions but not involved when a seemingly onside Sala converted.Claudio Ranieri was entitled to feel aggrieved and his fifth-placed side finished the match with 10 men when Diego Carlos was sent off in bizarre circumstances.The defender collided with referee Tony Chapron as he charged forward on the break, with the official falling to the ground and appearing to kick out in frustration at Carlos, before regaining his footing and dishing out a second booking for apparent dissent.Both sides looked sharp and inventive during the opening stages but PSG drew first blood in the 12th minute, with Cavani making his presence felt on his comeback.The Uruguay striker aimed a precise pass in Di Maria’s direction and Kylian Mbappe’s exquisite dummy scrambled a Nantes defence appealing in vain for offside, leaving the Argentina midfielder to slot home his seventh goal of the season.47′ Your lone goal scorer of the night so far… Angel Di Maria #FCNPSG pic.twitter.com/YIKsfnkv6a— PSG English (@PSG_English) January 14, 2018Nantes were largely restricted to speculative attempts – none more so that Andrei Girotto’s bolt strike from the halfway line, with the execution falling some way short of the ambition.Di Maria was at the heart of most of PSG’s best work but he endured a moment to forget eight minutes before the interval.Marco Verratti, Mbappe and Adrien Rabiot all combined on a lightning break, only for Di Maria to inexplicably hit the top of the crossbar with the goal at his mercy.The 29-year-old was soon back in the thick of the action, knocking a cross down for Giovani Lo Celso, who had a rasping shot bravely blocked.Carlos flicked a searching cross from captain Leo Dubois just wide early in the second half as Nantes resumed with renewed ambition.Pinning PSG back did leave the hosts vulnerable on the counter-attack and Mbappe offered a demonstration of his blistering pace down the right in the 56th minute, only for Di Maria’s finish to let him down again – albeit less spectacularly.Sala thought he had drawn Nantes level with an hour played but his header from Dubois’ free-kick was ruled out for offside, even though he appeared to be level with Cavani.Emery elected to end Cavani’s reintroduction in the 68th minute, sending on Thomas Meunier for a touch more defensive insurance.Meunier’s fellow full-back Layvin Kurzawa smashed a volley wide in an attempt to make the point safe, while Ciprian Tatarusanu produced a superb reaction save to deny Mbappe the goal his efforts merited.Nantes’ final push for a share of the spoils was checked by Carlos being on the end of some rough justice. Rabiot then struck the post before boos rained down when the final whistle was sounded by Chapron – a man who had unsatisfactorily made himself the centre of attention.Key Opta stats:- PSG have won their last 13 encounters with Nantes in Ligue 1, their longest winning run against a current top-flight team.- PSG have only lost twice in their last 40 Ligue 1 games (W33, D5), on 30 April 2017 against Nice (1-3) and 2 December 2017 against Strasbourg (1-2).- PSG have scored 59 goals in Ligue 1 2017/18, highest tally at this stage in their history.- Angel Di Maria has been involved in seven goals in six games against Nantes in Ligue 1 (4 goals, 3 assists), more than against any other opponent. read more read more

Come have a competition of mantras with me. Let’s see who knows more Sanskrit mantras,” Mamata said, at a rally in Kolkata.Mamata Banerjee has been embroiled in a war of words with the BJP and PM Modi that is unlikely to end any time soon.While Mamata Banerjee was accused of deliberately blocking Amit Shah’s entry into West Bengal to headline a BJP rally, the saffron party’s demand to declare the state a ‘super sensitive’ zone, the Trinamool Congress (TMC) said, amounted to insulting the people of the state.”They talk of political murders. Ninety-nine per cent TMC leaders were killed. Is it because we are fighting against Modi and Amit Shah?” Mamata said.Mamata Banerjee also headlined a rally at Kolkata’s Brigade Parade ground in January — with leaders of 22 Opposition parties. The joint rally took on PM Modi, Shah and the BJP for its “tyranny and misgovernance”.Voting for the Lok Sabha polls in West Bengal will be held in seven phases on April 11, 18, 23, 29, May 6, 12 and 19.The counting of votes will take place on May 23.advertisementGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

TORONTO — A new report suggests the speed of technological advances has become so rapid that it’s outpacing the rate at which large Canadian businesses and government institutions can adapt, with the number of jobs threatened by automation ranging from 35 to 42 per cent.The co-authored report, by Deloitte and the Human Resources Professionals Association, calls upon policy-makers and business leaders to prepare Canadian workers for the disruption that artificial intelligence, machine learning and other technologies are having on the economy.“The changes we are seeing are nothing less than historic and governments and educators need to take a skills-first, not a job-first approach,” said Scott Allinson, vice-president of public affairs at the HRPA.“Technology just seems to be outpacing the current business model,” added Allinson, pointing to last week’s announcement by Sears Canada that the retailer was shutting down its 130 remaining stores, leaving about 12,000 employees without a job.“We’ve seen with the brick-and-mortar stores that they’re not keeping up with the change of what people are looking for, thanks to technology.”Reforming education to ensure Canadians enter the workforce with the future-proofed skills they need to succeed in a digital world are among the key recommendations in the joint report.It says this would require re-examining how schools are organized, with greater emphasis placed on interdisciplinary work, mental agility, critical thinking, teamwork, relationship management, and the capacity to learn itself — “in other words, coaching the integrated capabilities needed for the future instead of teaching individual subjects.”With workers today needing to upgrade their capabilities constantly, the report also calls upon businesses to take a leadership role in promoting “future-proofed capabilities” by replacing static learning and development programs with dynamic, continuous learning opportunities.Among the ways this could be achieved would include making learning available on-demand, 24/7 to all employees on any digital platform: computer, tablet or smartphone. Employers that don’t offer these off-site, virtual learning opportunities will find it increasingly difficult to recruit and retain top talent, the report says.Another key recommendation is modernizing provincial labour laws and the social safety net to reflect the realities of the “gig economy” — which has turned the traditional one job/one employee/one employer model on its head, with pioneers like Uber and Airbnb doing away with large, hierarchical organizational structures altogether.The report says that since 1997, Canada’s contingent workforce has grown from 4.8 million to 6.1 million and now accounts for about one-third of all jobs — and is likely to keep growing.While Ontario has been debating reforms to raise the minimum wage and improve the labour market, Allinson says that policy-makers across the country need to design solutions that reflect both the opportunities and the challenges facing gig-economy workers as well as free-agent employees in traditional companies. This includes significant reform to the way Canadian public policy approaches retirement planning, income taxes and unemployment insurance.“We need to get down to the urgent work of assessing not just how work will change in Canada but how Canadian workers should prepare,” said Allinson. read more
Norfolk’s Recreation Facilities Advisory Board is scrambling to pull together a proposal that members hope to share with senior provincial officials in Ottawa next month.Wednesday’s meeting at Governor Simcoe Square was moved up a week to take an accounting of where the board stands on the possibility of building a recreational hub in Simcoe.Two architects from a Brantford design firm were on hand to receive ideas for concept drawings. They are on a tight timeline and hope to have something ready within two weeks.Mayor Kristal Chopp and Port Dover Coun. Amy Martin will attend the Association of Municipalities of Ontario conference in Ottawa, Aug. 18-21.There, the pair hope to share the board’s vision with a senior Ontario cabinet official, preferably Infrastructure Minister Laurie Scott. The Ford government, in collaboration with the federal government, will have a large say in the dispersal of any infrastructure funds that may arise now that Canada is on the cusp of a federal election.“We’ve got 10 minutes with these guys,” Chopp told the board. “We want to get the conversation started. It’s just a concept at this stage so we can say, ‘We’re doing this and this is why ours will be better than anyone else’s’.”Much of Wednesday’s meeting was spent describing what a recreational hub might look like.Interim CAO Harry Schlange said a good place to start is a multi-use facility of about 150,000 square feet with a maximum budget of $60 million. If the project proceeds, the ideal scenario would see Queen’s Park and Ottawa fund two-thirds while Norfolk County and its residents would raise the remainder.Paul Anderson, chair of the advisory board, asked the representatives from +VG Architects to keep in mind that the appropriate design will reflect the needs of a community with a population of 64,000. As such, Anderson asked them to refrain from producing drawings more appropriate to a large city bidding for the Olympics.Chopp noted that recreational hubs in other communities tend to be visually uninteresting. If a local hub is built, the mayor said she wants it to be attractive on the outside and on the inside.Board member Sue Defreyne shared feedback she has collected from user groups and individuals who have taken an interest in the recreational hub concept.Defreyne said the public has expressed interest in a facility with: a large indoor track for walking and other activities; a 50-metre eight-to-10 lane pool rated for regional and provincial competitions; two hockey rinks; a large gym that can be divided into three areas; a seniors centre; more baseball diamonds so local associations can host tournaments with 16 teams instead of eight; space for dance instruction, recitals, fitness classes and the like; a community kitchen for cooking classes and a communal eating space for meals prepared on site; meeting rooms and storage space.The board also discussed potential future uses of existing facilities the hub might replace.Defreyne mentioned there is high local demand for indoor soccer and that an arena could be outfitted for this purpose. There also may be an opportunity, she said, to relocate the Simcoe Farmers Market to surplus arena space from its current location at the Norfolk County Fairgrounds.The board has not firmed up an appointment with a senior Ford official at AMO.However, Coun. Martin said: “We need to come prepared and put our best foot forward.”Martin and Chopp also want a set of talking points to share in case a high-level meeting is secured.The board continues to discuss potential locations for a recreational hub. Locations were the subject of an in-camera meeting at the end of Wednesday’s meeting.Norfolk is considering the construction of a recreational hub because many of the county’s key facilities in Simcoe are old, obsolete and in need of expensive repairs and upgrades.MSonnenberg@postmedia.com read more
Good morning!Saudi Arabia’s restrained statement today calling on the United Nations to investigate attacks on its oil facilities suggests the kingdom is going to bide its time as it plans its next move. But make no mistake, it’s not the last we have heard on this issue.The vulnerability of Mideast supplies certainly gives Alberta producers an opportunity to make their case for investors to return to the Canadian oilsands — not that we don’t have our own unique set of challenges, as Geoffrey Morgan notes in his report.While Canada may be unable to take advantage of the volatility in oil markets any time soon, Canadians will certainly pay higher prices at the pump immediately. Some reports suggest gas prices could surge 8 cents as soon as today after crude climbed as much as 19 per cent on Monday.The Saudi attacks certainly stole the limelight away from what was going to be the defining event of the week: the U.S. Federal Reserve’s decision on interest rates on Wednesday.Story continues belowThis advertisement has not loaded yet,but your article continues below.Oil price volatility appears to have strengthened the case for a rate cut. Add in global trade tensions, and it all but guarantees the Fed will lower policy rates another 25 bps, according to Bank of Montreal.“Investors will eye the statement and ‘dot plot’ for hints of a third rate cut on October 30. The statement and Powell’s presser should leave the door open for such a possibility by repeating the ‘act as appropriate’ pledge,” wrote BMO senior economist Sal Guatieri along with colleagues in a note to clients.Meanwhile, Naomi Powell reports that a strike against General Motors’ American factories would deliver a blow to the firm’s Canadian parts suppliers “within days” as a highly integrated cross-border supply chain stutters to a halt.Here’s what’s you need to know this morning:As oil gets volatile, Alberta goes on offensive to woo investors Scheer says Liberals’ rejection of idea to tax housing profits can’t be trusted Liberals pledge $535 million a year for child care outside school hours B.C. wants to be part of global resolution in opioid company bankruptcy claim WeWork delays IPO after frosty investor response Saudi Aramco pursues IPO planning despite attack damage doubts Trump says U.S. reaches trade deals with Japan, no word on cars Oil sheds gains, stocks inch lower as focus turns to Fed In planet’s fastest-warming region, jobs come with thaw U.S. antitrust chiefs face Senate grilling on collaboration, interference Attack on ‘central bank of oil’ could lift interest in Canada — but oilsands have geopolitical risks, too ‘There’s not a hope in hell Canada will escape negative impacts of a U.S. strike on GM’ Diane Francis: Trudeau’s assault on accountability has mired him in scandal, declining voter support Don’t let record highs fool you: The TSX’s returns are still ‘pathetic,’ money managers say The Tesla of snowmobiles: Ski-Doo maker reveals electric recreational vehicle prototypes Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau makes a policy announcement in St., John’s, Newfoundland Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer makes an announcement in Winnipeg In Ottawa, NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh makes an announcement on the NDP’s plan to make housing more affordable for Canadians The Ecology Action Centre releases a report on climate jobs and the green economy in Halifax Statistics Canada releases its monthly survey of manufacturing for July The Department of Finance Canada releases the Annual Financial Report of the Government of Canada that summarizes the government’s financial results for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2019, including the budgetary balance, in Ottawa RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki provides a short update on the matter related to the ongoing investigation, arrest and charges against Cameron Ortis Human rights and arms control advocates discuss the ways in which Canadian export laws do not meet the full requirements of the Arms Trade Treaty, explain how recent developments in the conflict in Yemen necessitates a review of Saudi arms exports, and renew their calls to immediately suspend or cancel the arms exports agreement with Saudi Arabia, in Ottawa A national partnership of housing organizations launch the 2019 Canadian Rental Housing Index to provide data highlighting the ridings, regions, and provinces being hardest hit by Canada’s rental housing affordability crisis in Toronto The UNITE summit provides insight into our global energy future and addresses the opportunities and challenges presented by game-changing technologies, global trends, disruptive innovations, and cross-industry collaborations in Calgary Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe gives a luncheon address to the Regina and District Chamber of Commerce, entitled “”Canada at a Crossroads: The state of Saskatchewan, the Canadian federation, and our shared economic prosperity“ in Regina Corporate Events: Canopy Growth Corp. annual meeting in Toronto; Atco and Canadian Utilities investor day in Calgary This weekend, the ultimate test of oil facility security — and one of the biggest geopolitical events to hit oil markets in decades — was the drone attacks targeting some of Saudi Arabia’s most important oil installations. It knocked more than five per cent of the world’s total oil production offline. For oil markets, it’s the single worst sudden disruption ever, and while Saudi Arabia may be able to return some supply within days, there’s the heightened danger of conflict in a region that holds almost half of global crude reserves. “Political-risk premiums are now back on the oil-market agenda.” — Please send your news, comments and stories to email@example.com. — Yadullah Hussain @Yad_fpenergyWith files from The Canadian Press, Thomson Reuters and Bloomberg read more
With this weekend’s surprise revelation that AT&T would be buying T-Mobile for $39 billion, thus taking the crown from Verizon as the country’s biggest cell provider, you’d think that Verizon would be worried. Maybe even angry. Maybe even angry enough to do something rash, like use its lobbying money to try to pressure the government into blocking the sale of T-Mobile to AT&T on monopolist, anti-trust grounds. Consider me surprised, then, by Verizon CEO Daniel Mead’s cool response to the news. Mead says that Verizon will not oppose the plans of AT&T to purchase T-Mobile, as it would distract his company from the goal of being “the most profitable wireless carrier in the country” as opposed to just the biggest. Now, that’s a sound strategy. Verizon’s recent partner, Apple, has followed just such a strategy to great success over the course of the last decade: their marketshare might be small compared to other gadget makers, but that hasn’t stopped them from maximizing margins and becoming the most profitable tech company on earth.AdChoices广告Still, I have to say, as a consumer, I’m worried about the AT&T / T-Mobile merger, and so seeing Verizon so cavalier about it is puzzling. Surely Verizon should be worried about AT&T — a company once broken up because of its monopoly — becoming such a huge player in the American mobile space.They aren’t, though. Mead also took the opportunity to tell Reuters that Verizon would not panic and try to acquire Sprint as a reaction to this news. “We’re not interested in Sprint. We don’t need them,” were his exact words. That’s good news for consumers: the last thing we need in the United States is two juggernauts complacently fixing the market amongst one another. We need a scrappy underdog to get them to improve.Read more at Reuters read more

China and Russia Very insulting but perhaps Europe should first pay its fair share of NATO which the US subsidizes greatly" The jab followed Macron’s comments to Europe 1 radio earlier that week when the French president mentioned “attempted attacks in cyberspace and interference in our democratic lives” and concluded Europe needed to protect itself “with respect to China Russia and even the United States of America” To Trump it did not matter that Macron was referring to attacks on the Internet rather than live battlefields And so when the two men met on Saturday morning at the Elysée Palace they wore frozen smilesa sharp contrast with the effusive welcome Trump received on his last visit to France for Bastille Day celebrations in July 2017 “We have become very good friends” Trump told reporters on Saturday But all weekend Trump cut a solitary figure He canceled his visit to the US war cemetery in Belleau Wood northeast of Parison Saturday afternoon apparently because rain had grounded the Marine One helicopter Meanwhile Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel hugged each other in Compiègne the site where the Armistice peace treaty was signed in 1918 Macron posted the photo on Twitter with just one word: “Unis” (United) On Sunday morning Trump again went his own way: He ducked into the Elysée Palace through the side entrance of the building for a breakfast with all the leaders rather than joining Macron’s receiving line at the front door And after breakfast almost all 70 leaders walked down the Avenue du Champs-Elysée in the rain to the Arc de Triomphea symbolic echo of victorious French troops marching down the avenue after Paris was liberated from the Nazis (with critical US help) in 1944 Meanwhile a US motorcade escorted Trump alone to the ceremony There standing under the arch at the official ceremony to mark the end of the war with leaders from across the world seated before him Macron issued his sharpest rebuke yet to Trump albeit without once mentioning his name “Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism” the French leader said With Trump Russian President Vladimir Putin and Merkel all seated in the front row he said nationalism and patriotism were exact opposites By putting our interests first he warned " we erase what a nation holds dearest what gives it life what makes it great and what is essential: its moral values" And yet despite that impassioned plea there is one fact Macron cannot escape: he and indeed all of Europe badly needs the United States For months Macron has called for Europe to ramp up its military forces and to try to create what he calls a “European Army” in which the European Union’s 28 member nations (27 after Britain leaves in March) would jointly train forces and deploy them in battle Without a crack fighting force Europeans will remain dependent on outside help as it did during both world wars when the US military stepped in On a continent that has suffered centuries of wars military independence is a tempting prospect But in reality Macron’s idea is widely regarded as unworkable “You cannot have an Army without having an executive branch” says François Heisbourg special adviser to the Foundation for Strategic Research in Paris “The EU is not a country it is not a state” he says And so he says “you will notice the resounding silence from Macron’s EU partners” In part because of Macron’s pushand perhaps also because of pressure from Trumpseveral EU countries increased military spending last year according to Heisbourg But Europe remains heavily dependent on the US for its security “They could not manage without the US in a big crisis” says Michael Shurkin senior political scientist in Washington for the RAND Corporation who studies EU militaries While France and Britain regularly deploy forces in shooting wars few other European countries do “By and large all of them have militaries designed to work as a coalition run by the US” he says In recent wars in Libya and Mali French forces depended on the US military for aerial refueling early warning systems and other key operations that the Europeans were simply incapable of doing In addition says Shurkin EU governments have for years cut military budgets “knowing full well that the US would protect them” For many Europeans the history of catastrophic battle still looms large There are monuments and plaques to those killed in World War I in almost every French village town and even in schoolyards At least 3 million French and German soldiers died as well as about 116000 American soldiers “It is the most important element of France’s collective memory since the French Revolution” in 1789 says Heisbourg “Every family surrendered their boys to the war” And among the EU members that border Russia like Latvia Lithuanian and Estonia the possibility of another major war seems quite feasible “We are doing everything together to strengthen our security in the region” Latvian President Raimonds Vējonis told TIME in Paris on Sunday He cited Russia’s annexation of Crimea in 2014 as an example of the rising threat from Moscow Yet like others Vējonis says he does not support Macron’s idea of a European Armyeven if it was feasible That is because the Baltics like others depends heavily on US and Canadian military cooperation and intelligence which could take a lesser role if a European Army existed “That is why it is very important we are part of NATO” he said For Macron the challenge now is to inject a sense of urgency at a time when Europe is not at war At a dinner at the D’Orsay Museum in Paris on Saturday night he told the leaders that they risked taking peacetime for grantedan unwise proposition he said on a continent that has known repeated wars And on Sunday night when Macron opened his inaugural Paris Peace Forum a gathering of presidents prime ministers politicians and executives he marveled at how leaders of countries that were bitter enemies a century ago were now close friends seated in the audience “Will it be a snapshot of the final moment of unity before the world descends into disorder” he asked “The answer is down to us” Contact us at editors@timecomConcussions are an unfortunate reality in many sports from football to soccer and boxing And as studies continue to link concussions to a range of health problems from depression to Alzheimer’s and other brain changes sports and health officials have focused their attention on whether protective equipment like helmets can lower the risk of brain injuries Most research to date shows that there is no concussion-proof helmet to protect against all concussions and brain injury In March 2013 a panel of 32 experts updated the Consensus Statement on Concussion in Sport and concluded that while mouth guards and helmets generally protect the faces and heads of athletes they don’t do much to protect them from internal brain damage In fact they warned helmets and mouth guards may even give some players a false sense of security and invincibility and may make them act more aggressively on the field MORE: A New Blood Test to Diagnose Concussions On The Field A new study published in the Journal of Neurosurgery confirmed that there’s no helmet that can protect a player from all concussions but the researchers compared two helmets and found that some can be more protective than others While previous studies simply looked at rates of concussions across a wide variety of helmet types and among players with varying rates of head impacts in this study the scientists were able to control for the number of impacts each player had and compare that to his helmet type and risk of concussion The researchers analyzed six years of head impacts among 1833 college football players from eight schools The players were either wearing a Riddell VSR4 or Riddell Revolution helmet which the manufacturers say no longer have screws that are typically found in the forehead area of the helmet That construction provides “an unparalleled amount of face mask flexion dispersing impact energies around the helmet instead of onto the player’s head” the company claims The two helmets were popular choices at the time of the study (MORE: Your Kid Is Probably Wearing the Wrong Helmet to Prevent Concussions) The research team monitored more than a million head impacts by equipping the helmets with sensors to measure the force velocity and direction of each impact They found a 54% lower risk of concussion among players wearing the Riddell Revolution helmet compared to those who wore the VSR4 helmet That suggests that the Revolution is better at dissipating the energy from an impact on the helmet before it reaches the head leading to what the researchers call lower head accelerations and a lower concussion risk Since rule changes can only go so far in reducing the risk of impacts to the head the scientists say that improving helmet design to lessen the damage that such trauma can do to the brain is also critical and their data suggest that may be possible No helmet can prevent 100% of concussions but if some can reduce the risk then they should be studied further the researchers say Contact us at editors@timecom But the “foot” of this snail, however, “The capacity of our winning machine is buoyed by the various tangible development projects that have hugely affected the lives of ordinary Nigerians in the north.
