Mohsin confirms running for Pakistan head coachs job

first_imgKarachi: Former Pakistan batsman Mohsin Khan Saturday threw his hat into the ring for the national team head coach’s job left vacant after the cricket board decided not to renew South African Mickey Arthur’s contract. Mohsin, who has remained a chief selector and also the interim head coach of the national team, said at a function here that the PCB could easily find a capable person from the country to coach the national team. “I have been offered positions twice thrice by the previous board set-up but I did not accept because I could not work with a corrupt set-up. But I am willing to work with this set-up provided they show respect to their own players,” he said.

He said Pakistan team does not need a foreign coach and foreign support staff. “What have these foreign coaches achieved when the board has hired them. What did Arthur achieve,” he questioned. Mohsin said if he is offered any position by the Board, he would make it clear he would not compromise on discipline.

Former Pakistan opener Aamir Sohail, who has also served as chief selector in the past, said the Cricket Committee headed by Wasim Khan had taken the right decision to give marching orders to Arthur and his support staff. “Yes, it was the right thing to do after three years but what is important is to see what happens now. I think we have enough capable people in our own country who can do a good job with the team,” Sohail said. He also noted that the PCB needed to change its priorities. “They have asked for coaches qualified to run so many software programmes to apply for the coaching positions and the funny thing is that what steps does the board take to educate its own local coaches in such programmes,” he said.last_img read more

Province to introduce program to support renters that are facing eviction

first_imgVANCOUVER, B.C. – The Ministry of Social Development and Poverty Reduction will be releasing a program that aims to support B.C. renters that are facing eviction.According to the Government, renters facing short-term financial difficulties will soon get more help and avoid evictions with new funding for community rent banks.As part of Budget 2019, the Province granted $10 million to the Vancity Community Foundation to develop a sustainable, provincewide rent bank system. The Government says VanCity will consult with existing rent banks to develop a sustainable provincial program.Social Development Minister, Shane Simpson, says rent banks play an important role in helping to avoid evictions, adding that he is looking forward to hearing about the outcome from the consultation.“Preventing homelessness by helping people avoid eviction is key and rent banks play an important role. The Province is contributing this funding to support a sustainable network of rent banks to help people in B.C., and I look forward to hearing about the consultation, and the plan that Vancity and the existing rent banks will have in place for the long term.”VanCity will be working with existing rent banks to better understand their operational needs, discuss best practices, identify service gaps and examine expanding the rent bank model to more communities throughout B.C.More information on Rental Assistance Programs can be found at bchousing.org.last_img read more

UK security forces hunt for ISIS crocodile cells

first_imgLondon: Britain’s security forces are on the hunt for so-called “crocodile cells or sleeper cells” of Islamic State (ISIS) operatives plotting terrorist attacks in the UK and Europe, according to a UK media report. The country’s police chiefs are urging churches and mosques in Britain to have counter-terrorism training because of fears of further attacks in the wake of the Sri Lanka terrorist strikes, which claimed hundreds of lives over Easter. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince Salman ‘snubbed’ Pak PM Imran, recalled his private jet from US: Report”Now that ISIS has been defeated in Syria and Iraq, it will become more violent outside (this area). As its core weakens, its peripheries will become more dangerous,” Charlie Winter, of the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation at King’s College London, told ‘The Sunday Times’. “It’s a grim outlook, but we are likely to see more attempts at attacks, more regularly, for the foreseeable future. Sri Lanka was not a one-off. If anything, it was a test run,” he said. Also Read – Iraq military admits ‘excessive force’ used in deadly protestsThe UK’s intelligence services continue to investigate links between one of the Sri Lankan suicide bombers, Abdul Lathief Jameel Mohamed, and the UK-based extremists since it emerged he had studied in Britain. Mohamed is considered by Western intelligence agencies to be one of the plot’s ringleaders. He is believed to have secretly travelled to Syria to prepare for the attack. Once there, he was reportedly “mentored” by a group of notorious British ISIS fighters and recruiters, including the killer known as Jihadi John. “Mohamed appears to have been sent back to Sri Lanka after receiving his terrorist training under an ISIS strategy utilising ‘crocodile cells’ or sleepers waiting to pounce,” The Sunday Times reported. “We’ve seen intelligence which connects him (Mohamed) to a number of British terrorists who were in Syria, as well as to Jihadi John and Junaid Hussain, around the time that ISIS set up its caliphate,” an intelligence source told the newspaper. “The British jihadists seemed to be mentoring him through communication online and also when he travelled to Syria,” the source added. Mohamed is likely to have spent only a matter of months in the Syrian war zone, and it remains unclear when he returned to Sri Lanka to become part of an ISIS sleeper cell. Another theory is that Mohamed may have fallen under the influence of terror outfit Hizb-ut-Tahrir (HuT) while living in London and studying at Kingston University in the mid-2000s. The group, which calls for the foundation of an Islamic caliphate, had a strong presence on the Kingston campus at the time Lathief was in the UK to study aeronautical engineering, according to ‘The Sunday Telegraph’. However, a spokesperson for HuT Britain said the group had no record of Lathief Mohamed being a member. “To be absolutely clear, we abhor the senseless killing of citizens in any country by any person, group or military. The Islamic Shari’ah does not give justification for such acts as in Sri Lanka last week,” the spokesperson said. HuT is banned in more than a dozen countries, but not the UK. Former British Prime Ministers Tony Blair and David Cameron both tried unsuccessfully to ban it.last_img read more

Body of Missing British Backpacker Found in Moroccos Toubkal Mountain

By Rania TaziRabat – The hunt for missing backpacker Connor Jarvis appears to have come to an end as local media announce that a body was found at the bottom of a ravine in Mount Toubkal.It has allegedly been identified as the body of Connor Jarvis, a 19-year-old British backpacker who went missing on May 28 while on a solitary vacation in Morocco. It is unclear whether or not the body is that of Jarvis since it has yet to be officially identified, but according to a report by the Daily Mail, the Mount Toubkal guide who discovered the body confirmed that it was in fact him.Connor Jarvis was expected to return home to Bath in Somerset on May 28 after an eight-day backpacking trip, but never boarded his plane in Marrakech. His family had not been in contact with him since May 22, and his absence prompted an immediate investigation. He was reported missing that same day.This disappearance has been described as “out of character” for the young tourist and has sparked growing concern in his home town.According to Avon and Somerset police, Connor Jarvis allegedly came into contact with a soldier from the Bath area, and authorities are aiming to identify this man for further investigation. read more

Brazil officials investigate kickback scheme

SAO PAULO — Brazilian prosecutors say they’re investigating a kickback scheme involving bank directors who allegedly accepted bribes in exchange for investments in businesses that include the now-defunct Trump-branded hotel in Rio de Janeiro.Prosecutors on Tuesday said the scheme worked out of the Banco de Brasilia, which is controlled by the government of Brazil’s federal district.The government-run news agency Agencia Brasil said the scheme involved the equivalent of more than $4 million, part of which benefited the Trump-branded hotel, has since been renamed LSH Lifestyle.The Brazilian businessman licensed to use the Trump brand was placed under investigation in 2016 and the Trump Organization withdrew from the deal. There’s no indication the Trump group itself was involved in the scheme.The Associated Press

DR Congo UN condemns recent massacre of civilians in South Kivu

28 May 2007The United Nations Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUC) today spoke out against a recent massacre in the country’s troubled east, calling on the authorities to find and punish those responsible. The United Nations Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUC) today spoke out against a recent massacre in the country’s troubled east, calling on the authorities to find and punish those responsible.In a news release, MONUC confirmed that on the night of 26 May, a group of 10 to 12 militiamen, purported to be with “FDLR/Rastas,” attacked the villages of Nyabuluze and Muhungu in the South Kivu Province, killing 18 civilians, among them women and children, and wounding 27. A dozen and a half people were also abducted in the same incident.The mission said it “strongly and unequivocally condemns this horrible massacre of innocent civilians,” noting that the victims were all killed or wounded in their sleep by attackers who “chose machetes, bayonets, knives and clubs over firearms to kill silently and avoid detection.”Notes were left on the bodies of their victims, in which the attackers claimed that these atrocities were in reprisals to the operations led against them by the Armed Forces of the DRC (FARDC), according to MONUC.As the perpetrators attempted to raid Chihamba, a third village in the same area, a patrol of UN Pakistani peacekeepers opened fire, forcing them to flee into the nearby forests, and “thereby preventing another bloodbath,” MONUC said.The DRC’s army (FARDC), supported by MONUC units, subsequently conducted operations in the area, leading to the recovery of four of the abductees, but the mission cited unconfirmed reports indicating that 12 bodies were later recovered in the same forest area. A United Nations assessment team composed of the International Rescue Committee (IRC), the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), along with MONUC, was dispatched to the area shortly before noon today, as part of the UN humanitarian Quick Response Mechanism.MONUC said protection of civilians is at the core of its mandate “and, without this timely intervention, the toll would have been undoubtedly much higher.”The mission reiterated that the security of the Congolese people and the territorial integrity of the DRC is the first responsibility of its Government, its Armed Forces and its National Police. It called on the Congolese authorities “to use all necessary means so that those responsible for these heinous crimes are pursued, and brought to justice.” read more

EU watchdog probes Facebook over WhatsApp merger

BRUSSELS – The European Commission is investigating whether Facebook gave misleading information about its takeover of mobile messaging service WhatsApp.The EU’s executive body on Tuesday gave Facebook until Jan. 31 to answer a “statement of objections” about merger information the social media giant gave the Commission two years ago.The Commission, the EU’s merger and anti-trust watchdog, is concerned that Facebook can match its users’ accounts with WhatsApp user accounts. The company said in 2014 that it could not do this. But Facebook’s August terms of service and privacy update suggest it can, according to the Commission.“The Commission’s preliminary view is that Facebook gave us incorrect or misleading information during the investigation into its acquisition of WhatsApp. Facebook now has the opportunity to respond,” EU Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager said in a statement.Facebook could face fines of up to 1 per cent of its turnover if those suspicions are confirmed.In a statement, Facebook said it respects the Commissioner’s process and is “confident that a full review of the facts will confirm Facebook has acted in good faith.”“We’ve consistently provided accurate information about our technical capabilities and plans, including in submissions about the WhatsApp acquisition and in voluntary briefings before WhatsApp’s privacy policy update this year,” Facebook said. “We’re pleased that the Commission stands by its clearance decision, and we will continue to co-operate and share information officials need to resolve their questions.”The August update could allow a link-up between WhatsApp phone numbers and Facebook user identities, which could help Facebook offer better “friend” suggestions or display more relevant ads on the Facebook page of a WhatsApp user.“Companies are obliged to give the Commission accurate information during merger investigations. They must take this obligation seriously,” Vestager warned.Such EU probes do not imply guilt, but they give companies the chance to examine relevant documents, reply in writing, or request an oral hearing.Facebook bought WhatsApp for $19 billion in 2014.

Historic agreement

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram A historic agreement has been reached between NUGAS Victoria and the Greek Community of Melbourne (GCM).The agreement, which allows members of NUGAS Victoria to become automatic members of the GCM, is reflective of the Community’s ‘open door’ policy.“Today marks a watershed moment for the Greek Community of Melbourne,” said GCM president Bill Papastergiadis, who claims this agreement will further unify the organisations. “It will allow for greater collaboration and foster the development of the future leaders in our community,” he said.The agreement was officially announced yesterday during a meeting of the president of NUGAS Victoria, Tass Sgardelis, with a delegation of the newly-elected board of management, consisting of president Bill Papastergiadis, general secretary Costas Markos and directors Phillip Vassiliadis and Angela Georgalis.The agreement is the result of discussions between the two organisations which took place over the last couple of years, through a mutual desire to further strengthen their relationship.“I think it is very important for Greek Australian youth to get involved with the Greek Community and be aware of what is happening within the Community. We discussed at committee level the different ways to become actively involved and to work as partners and not work in isolation. We believe that the Greek Community is the most significant Greek organisation in Melbourne and we wish to work more closely in the future,” Mr Sgardelis said.GCM board member and former member of NUGAS Phillip Vassiliadis noted that with the completion of the Greek Centre, NUGAS must be engaged in more ways than simply using the building. “I was involved with NUGAS during my student years and then for a number of years I was not involved in any community organisations before I joined the GCM board,” said Mr Vassiliadis. He further noted that “such initiatives from Tass and the NUGAS board aim at bringing the Greek Community of Melbourne and NUGAS closer”. “Members can now actively participate in both organisations with the view that when they finish university and start their professional careers they can maintain engagement with the Greek Community, and I firmly believe that becoming members of the GCM is the best way to achieve this.”The importance of becoming a member of the Greek Community was underlined by newly-elected board member Angela Georgalis. “After university I felt some disconnection from the Greek community because I was not involved and I believe that there is now a way for me and young students and the younger Greek community to have a connection via the GCM. I think this way it will keep everyone in touch.”Costas Markos, GCM general secretary, described the agreement as a natural development, as NUGAS has been housed in the GCM building for more than 30 years. “It is a natural development for our students to become members of the Greek Community. This provides an opportunity for young people to engage with our organisation but also with the broader Greek community. We believe that with the continuation of the GCM programs and with the introduction of new initiatives the GCM will attract in the very near future young Greek Australian to positions of leadership.”He also underlined the fact that for the first time all the members of the GCM board of directors were born in Australia. “This is a tremendous achievement,” he noted in conclusion.last_img read more

first_imgMexico City, Mexico — The government of Mexico reports a significant increase in real estate sales around the country, but a decrease in sales in luxury properties.Mexico’s government housing branch, Fondo Nacional de Habitaciones Populares (FONHAO), reports that during the first month of 2018, housing sales for homes priced between 269,000 peso and 421,000 peso increased 57 percent.They also report that sales for higher-end homes valued at more than 3 million peso or approximately $165,000 USD, dropped 40 percent compared to January of 2017.Using figures from the National Housing Commission, Realty World says that the sale of economic homes made an important rebound in the first month of this year due to the increase in less expensive new homes and government subsidies.They say that for this year, 9,972 economically priced homes were added to the market with an additional 2,704 subsidized houses, leading to the increase in sales.They report that of the sale increase, 70 percent were for new homes, while 30 percent were sales for previously lived-in homes.Figures also show that for residential plus housing, or high-end homes exceeding 3 million peso, sales dropped 40 percent in January of 2018 compared to January 2017.

First in the list, they ask that patients and their doctors talk about the real need for additional echocardiograms when there are only minor signs of heart valve leakage.Do not order follow up or serial echocardiograms for surveillance after a finding of trace valvular regurgitation on an initial echocardiogram.As access to healthcare information has become more readily available to concerned patients, a growing number of doctors have become involved in evaluating, ordering and caring for patients with a wider range of heart health problems rather than sending them directly to a specialist to follow these issues. Additionally, the technology associated with medical testing has improved and miniaturized, leading to increased utilization of echocardiography to quickly and painlessly evaluate the patient’s heart. With the increase in testing and improvements in technology, it is now common for physicians to find trace valve regurgitation, or leakage, that in the past no one would have been aware was present. This may lead to anxiety, misleading results and more questions for a patient who has a limited understanding of echo reporting.Trace regurgitation is a very mild leak of a heart valve, which occurs when a valve does not close tightly, allowing blood to leak backward in your heart. Nearly all of the normal population will have a finding of some trivial or mild degree of regurgitation of one, two or three heart valves on a normal echocardiogram. This is sometimes called “physiologic” regurgitation by the doctor interpreting the echocardiogram. In most cases, a doctor, used to seeing these types of patients, will not even mention this finding to the patient as a way of avoiding the anxiety associated with this disclosure, which would be an essentially normal finding in most patients.Trace, physiologic, and in most cases, mild regurgitation of the mitral, tricuspid or pulmonic valve reported on an echocardiogram requires no immediate or long term follow up. Following up on these findings with additional testing should only be done if you and your doctor believe you have signs and symptoms of the leakage progressing or getting worse. These signs may include a murmur (an abnormal sound when the doctor listens to your heart), fatigue, chest pain, shortness of breath, or extra, or funny, heart beats.If a patient has trace regurgitation of the aortic valve, their doctor may choose to follow the regurgitation with future echocardiograms and additional physical examinations.The goal of Choosing Wisely is to promote conversations between physicians and patients about utilizing the most appropriate tests and treatments and avoiding care that may provide no benefit.ASE’s testing cardiovascular care scenarios were chosen based on the highest likelihood of improving patient care and reducing inappropriate test use. Leaders in the organization transformed the scenarios into plain language and produced the clinical explanations for each procedure. In particular, ASE’s cardiovascular care experts, reviewed the ACCF/ASE/AHA/ASNC/HFSA/HRS/SCAI/SCCM/SCCT/SCMR 2011 Appropriateness Use Criteria for Echocardiography (AUC), which was published in March 2011.ASE encourages all medical professionals engaged in cardiovascular care to read the“Five Things Physicians and Patients Should Question” lists at www.choosingwisely.org, and to engage their patients in conversations about reducing inappropriate tests and procedures with a goal of improving care and avoiding harm.Consumer Reports, along with a coalition of consumer partner organizations, is also a part of the Choosing Wisely effort and is working with many of the societies to help patients understand the tests and treatments that are right for them.For more information: www.asecho.org, www.choosingwisely.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Colonoscopy Systems | August 06, 2019 Rise in Early Onset Colorectal Cancer Not Aligned With Screening Trends A new study finds that trends in colonoscopy rates did not fully align with the increase in colorectal cancer (CRC) in… read more Images of regions of interest (colored lines) in the white matter skeleton representation.
