Manchester: Jason Roy is targeting England’s match against arch-rivals Australia for a World Cup return after being sidelined with a torn hamstring. The in-form opening batsman has been ruled out of England’s match against Afghanistan at Old Trafford on Tuesday and their pool encounter with Sri Lanka at Headingley on Friday. Roy tore his left hamstring in the field during England’s eight-wicket win over the West Indies last week and did not bat, with Joe Root, who made a century, promoted to open alongside Jonny Bairstow instead. Also Read – Djokovic heaps praise on ‘very complete’ Medvedev But having suffered a similar injury during England’s tour of the Caribbean earlier this year and with the World Cup featuring a long pool phase that sees all 10 teams play each other ahead of the semi-finals, the 28-year-ol Roy is confident of returning to action. “I did it in the West Indies and it was a lot worse,” Roy told Sky Sports. “It could be way worse — the scan told me it’s minimum 10 days. We’ve got to assess it as we go along.” Also Read – Mary Kom enters quarterfinals, Saweety Boora bows out of World C’ships “It’s a huge understatement being frustrated, but I’ve got to keep smiling,” the Surrey star added. Roy hit a fifty in England’s opening win over South Africa and then struck a commanding 153 in the host nation’s victory over Bangladesh. But he fell for just eight during England’s surprise 14-run defeat to Pakistan at Trent Bridge. Now he hopes to face reigning champions Australia at Lord’s on June 25. “We’re targeting Australia but we’ll see how this week goes,” said Roy, whose opening partnership with Bairstow has been a key factor in England’s rise to the top of the one-day international rankings and their status as favourites to win the World Cup. “If this week goes to plan, then Australia. If not, then who knows. Hamstrings are such a grey area.” England captain Eoin Morgan, who suffered a back spasm during the West Indies match but recovered to face Afghanistan, was in no doubt about Roy’s importance to his side. “I certainly believe Jason will play again in this tournament,” Morgan told a pre-match press conference at Old Trafford on Monday. “He’s out of the next two games, so we’ll see how he pulls up after that.” Morgan said England had not yet discussed who should replace Roy if a permanent replacement were needed, adding: “He’s obviously a huge part of what we’ve been doing. He’s in the best form of his life, so he’s very important.”

As the most basic level, it could stand as a definition of dance itself. It also references the historical and mostly involuntary movement of peoples of African heritage to the Americas, their gradual settlement across the continent and the evolution of distinct African-American cultures.For Vivine Scarlett, Dance Immersions’s founder and executive director, the title serves spotlights the fact that Canadian dance artists of the African diaspora are part of a dynamic continuum. Thus, Movement in Time features younger and emerging artists alongside such well-established organizations as Ballet Creole and COBA (Collective of Black Artists). The program also celebrates the diversity of styles and motivations that inspire the event’s participants, from funky jazz dance and street dance to contemporary fusions of Afro-Caribbean and modern dance, to work steeped in African tradition READ MORE Facebook Advertisement Three sections of a dance work entitled Ashes, by Shameka Blake, will be performed at Harbourfront’s Movement in Time event.

BANGKOK — Shares rose in Asia on Monday after President Donald Trump temporarily re-opened the U.S. government. Japan was the main regional outlier, as the Nikkei 225 index lost 0.5 per cent to 20,759.48 with uncertainty over China-U.S. trade talks bringing a lull in buying sentiment.KEEPING SCORE: Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index gained 0.3 per cent to 27,657.27 and the Shanghai Composite index climbed 0.3 per cent to 2,610.14. The Kospi in South Korea edged 0.2 per cent higher to 2,181.08 while India’s Sensex was flat at the open. Markets in Southeast Asia were mostly higher. Australia’s markets were closed for a national holiday.U.S. GOVERNMENT RE-OPENS: There was muted reaction in U.S. markets on Friday to news that Trump and congressional leaders had reached a deal to reopen the federal government for three weeks while talks continue over Trump’s demands for money to build a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico. Trump announced the agreement to break the 35-day impasse as delays at airports and widespread disruptions heightened the urgency to end the partial shutdown. However, uncertainty persists since Trump almost immediately threatened another shutdown or emergency action if he does not get a “fair deal.”ANALYSTS’ VIEWPOINT: “So the US government being ‘open’ again is a relief. But the greater challenge ahead is to prevent another shut-down come 15th Feb. and to that end, headway in talks between Republicans and Democrats over the next three weeks is critical,” Mizuho Bank said in a commentary. “While how open both sides are on a border security deal remains in the foreground, it is the U.S.-China trade talks (Wed.-Thu.) that will be in the limelight.”TRADE TALKS LOOM: Talks aimed at resolving the impasse over Chinese technology ambitions and other issues are due to resume in Washington later in the week, led by the U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Chinese Vice Premier Liu He. Analysts are forecasting progress in redressing the trade imbalance between the world’s two largest economies, perhaps staving off further hikes in punitive tariffs imposed by both sides, but they expect gaps to remain on key problems such as China’s blueprint for state-led development of leading technologies.WALL STREET: Stocks closed higher Friday, recovering a chunk of their losses from earlier in the week. Technology and industrial companies jumped as companies continued to report solid results for the fourth quarter. The S&P 500 index rose 0.85 per cent to 2,664.76, but the index fell 0.2 per cent for the week after big gains in the previous four. The Dow Jones Industrial Average added 0.7 per cent, to 24,737.20. The Nasdaq composite surged 1.3 per cent to 7,164.86 while the Russell 2000 index of smaller company stocks also increased 1.3 per cent, to 1,482.85.ENERGY: U.S. crude oil shed 33 cents to $53.36 per barrel in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. It rose 1.1 per cent to settle at $53.69 per barrel on Friday. Brent crude, used to price international oils, gave up 26 cents to $61.38 per barrel. It had gained 0.9 per cent on Friday to $61.64 per barrel.CURRENCIES: The dollar was trading at 109.36 yen down from 109.55 yen on Friday. The euro strengthened to $1.1420 from $1.1409.Elaine Kurtenbach, The Associated Press

4 December 2007The United Nations Climate Change Conference in Bali is off to an “encouraging start,” a senior UN official dealing with the issue has said, citing the decision by participating countries to establish a group that will determine the key elements of a long-term cooperative plan of action to address climate change. The United Nations Climate Change Conference in Bali is off to an “encouraging start,” a senior UN official dealing with the issue has said, citing the decision by participating countries to establish a group that will determine the key elements of a long-term cooperative plan of action to address climate change.The group, which will be open to all 192 countries of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), will present its decisions on the launch of negotiations on a post-2012 climate change regime to the ministers who will meet during the second week of the conference. The current regime, called the Kyoto Protocol, expires that year.UN Climate Change Executive Secretary Yvo de Boer said the establishment of the group was an “encouraging signal” which puts in motion a mechanism to reach an agreement in Bali. He explained that the group would decide which topics will be the subject of negotiations and when those negotiations would be completed. Discussions in the group will be led by Australia and South Africa. Countries also agreed today on a mechanism that could speed the transfer of technology that developing countries see as essential for addressing climate change. While the issue has been considered in the past in talks under the Climate Change treaty, States will now discuss concrete concerns on how to make it happen. The decision came as concerns were raised by developing countries that attention in Bali was too focused on a future agreement that would enter into force in 2013, while previous commitments to assist developing countries under the existing Convention and Protocol had been largely forgotten.Discussions to address deforestation also advanced today. Kishan Kumar-Singh, the Chair of the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice, the UN body in which talks and negotiations on the issue are conducted, said there was agreement that methodologies and tools for estimating emissions must be developed or made available and that pilot projects on deforestation should be launched in developing countries.Mr. Kumar-Singh said forests play a key role in addressing climate change as they absorb carbon that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere. Between 1990 and 2005, 13 million hectares disappeared every year due to deforestation. He said deforestation was the second largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions and causes up to 20 per cent of global greenhouse gas.

Health Minister and leader of a breakaway group of the Sri Lanka Freedom Party, Rajitha Senaratne, said the document had not named anyone. “The final decision of the UNHRC would have to be carried out by us.” The Leader of Opposition in Parliament and the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) chief, R Sampanthan, has said the Tamil question should be resolved “on the basis of what is happening in Geneva”.In his reaction to the publication of a report by the U.N. on human rights violations in Sri Lanka, Sampanthan told The Hindu: “On the basis of genuine reconciliation, there must be a just, reasonable, durable and workable political solution.” Vasudeva Nanayakkara, chief of the Democratic Left Front, said the UN report did not have “directives” and it was “not binding” on the Sri Lankan government. However, he wanted the government to give “serious attention” to various proposals and recommendations spelt out in the report.

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Saudi state TV says a fire has been controlled at a massive oil and gas field after a drone attack claimed by Yemen’s Houthi rebels.State TV said the fire struck the Shaybah oil field, which produces some 1 million barrels of crude oil a day.Aramco and Saudi officials did not respond to requests for comment from The Associated Press.The oil field at Shaybah is in the Arabian Peninsula’s Empty Quarter, a sea of sand where temperatures routinely hit 50 degrees Celsius (122 degree Fahrenheit).The site is also just a few kilometres (miles) from the border of the United Arab Emirates and some 1,200 kilometres (750 miles) from rebel-held territory in Yemen, demonstrating the range of the Houthis’ drones.The Associated Press

Taxpayers group says tax hikes a hazardous way to fix deficit problems REGINA – The Canadian Taxpayers Federation says higher taxes are the last thing Saskatchewan needs in the provincial budget to be tabled Wednesday.But Premier Brad Wall has said they will be there as part of the government’s three-year plan to balance the books.Todd MacKay, the federation’s prairie director, says revenue is down from income, business and consumption taxes, and raising them doesn’t necessarily mean more money coming in.“The reason for that is pretty clear — folks have less money,” MacKay said Tuesday.“So just increasing the tax burden on Saskatchewanians, when they’re already down, is a pretty hazardous way to fix a deficit problem. It’s not taxpayers’ fault for paying too little tax.”The Saskatchewan government is facing about a $1.3-billion deficit.Wall said Monday that some of the shortfall will be made up with tax increases. He said there will be a shift away from income taxes and toward consumption taxes. The government is also looking at the education portion of property taxes, provincial sales tax exemptions and the PST in general.MacKay said the government should focus on spending.“Families and businesses started trimming spending in Saskatchewan a couple of years ago,” he said.“The government hasn’t done that yet. In fact, spending has continued to go up. They’ve got to recognize the reality: there’s less money in Saskatchewan. You’ve got to spend less money.”For starters, MacKay said, the government should get out of the bus business and shut down the Saskatchewan Transportation Co.But MacKay said Wall is “bang on when he’s looking at wages.”Wall has said the government wants public-sector wages and benefits cut by 3.5 per cent, which could save about $250 million, although he hasn’t dictated how that should be achieved.The government is trying to save money because of a big drop in revenue from oil and gas, potash and uranium. Tax revenue is also lower than forecast and crop insurance claims are up $250 million because of a late harvest.Saskatchewan Finance Minister Kevin Doherty said there are difficult decisions in the budget.“We’re going to set in place a plan where we’re not so reliant on resource revenues moving forward,” said Doherty.“But we need to ensure that our program funding is sustainable over the long term and so we have to change course, make a bit of a shift with respect to where we derive our revenues from.”Doherty is forgoing the tradition of new shoes ahead of a budget and has instead opted to have his old shoes resoled in a symbolic gesture of the fiscal challenge ahead.“These shoes are perfectly good to use. They just needed some tweaking, they needed some adjustments, not unlike our economy.”NDP finance critic Cathy Sproule said the Opposition is concerned about where cuts might be made and offered a pair of hip waders to Doherty.“We thought that our finance minister’s in a little bit of trouble this year with the amount of deficit that we’re facing,” she said.“We thought we would be helpful and maybe provide him with these hip waders because we know he’s really deep in red ink.” by Jennifer Graham, The Canadian Press Posted Mar 21, 2017 11:56 am MDT Last Updated Mar 21, 2017 at 3:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email

Earlier this week we saw proof that power usage for displays had fallen significantly when Toshiba unveiled a 14″ LCD monitor that was powered over USB. A second display that fits in your laptop bag and needs no power cable and plug is an impressive achievement, but Samsung has set the bar even higher with its latest prototype TV.During the CeBIT show in Germany the Korean manufacturer had on display a 46″ transparent LCD TV with ten-ginger multitouch input. That’s impressive on its own, but the hidden feature that made our jaws drop is the fact it is run on solar-power. And not solar-power requiring a panel be installed outside to capture sunlight, but ambient solar-power from the room it is in.We’ve reported about Samsung’s transparent LCD TVs before, but this is the first time we’ve heard about a model running purely on renewable energy. It doesn’t seem to skimp on features as it achieves 1080p resolution alongisde the multitouch input. The transparency is a take it or leave it feature at the moment for consumers.Unfortunately, Samsung is not releasing any details yet of what the power consumption of the TV is or how they managed to achieve it. While there’s talk of using the transparent panels on devices like fridges, there’s no plans at the moment to launch a solar display.Read more at ITProPortal, via ecogeek.orgMatthew’s OpinionI find it incredible that Samsung has managed to cut the power requirements of a panel this large that it can draw everything it needs from ambient light. The fact that there’s no plans to launch such a display do suggest it isn’t perfect though.Even so, if the ambient light energy capture system is cheap to implement it sounds like a good way of helping cut down on the power draw of more traditional LCD TVs. Hopefully Samsung is already thinking about this and integrating it into new models.For now lets just use this as an example of how the future of display technology is looking pretty good. Ultra-low power screens look to be on the horizon, and if they can work at 46″, they should also work at 10.1″ in a tablet or 24″ as a desktop monitor.

Employee Benefits poll: More than three-quarters (76%) of respondents think that the legal action being brought against supermarket organisation Tesco over equal pay will pave the way for more equal pay claims overall.A straw poll of www.employeebenefits.co.uk readers, which received 59 responses, also found that 8% of respondents do not believe that Tesco’s example will lead to more equal pay claims, while 15% are unsure whether or not the legal action will impact the number of equal pay claims made.This month, approximately 1,000 current and former female store-based employees claimed that they are paid less than male staff working at the food retailer’s distribution centres.The equal pay claims regard the disparity in earnings between female store-based employees, who earn £8 an hour on average, compared to the largely male workforce based at Tesco’s distribution centres, who can earn in excess of £11 an hour on average. This could see full-time male distribution centre staff earn £100 a week, or £5,000 a year, more than their female counterparts working in Tesco stores.The claimants, who are being represented by law firm Leigh Day, have started legal proceedings to take their equal pay claims to the Employment Tribunal (ET). According to Leigh Day, more than 200,000 Tesco employees could be eligible to make a claim, with estimated pay shortfalls of £20,000 each.The legal action against Tesco follows on from an equal pay case made against fellow supermarket organisation Asda, with the ET confirming in June 2016 that lower-paid female employees at Asda could compare their pay to higher-paid male employees working in the organisation’s distribution centres. Leigh Day is currently representing more than 20,000 shop-floor employees at Sainsbury’s and Asda regarding similar equal pay claims.Do you think employers should offer incentives to encourage employees to adopt healthy behaviours?

READING, MA — With a heat wave predicted this Friday through Sunday, electricity demand in New England is expected to peak. RMLD’s usage during peaks impacts future power supply costs and the environment (Click here to learn more about RMLD’s Shred the Peak Program). In extreme situations, power supply resources may not have the capacity to meet this high demand, and the regional electric grid may be affected.As a preemptive measure, RMLD is asking customers to voluntarily conserve electricity Friday, Saturday, and Sunday between the hours of 3:00 pm and 7:00 pm by turning off unnecessary lights and electronics and minimizing the use of air conditioning. Please note, people who require air conditioning and other electrical appliances for health and safety reasons should not restrict their use.If the regional electricity supply becomes insufficient to meet the anticipated demand plus required operating reserves, the grid operator, ISO-New England (ISO-NE), may implement a multi-step procedure to protect the New England power grid and its consumers.The first steps include appeals to the public to voluntarily conserve electricity.These appeals are released in incremental levels:Power Watch – The initial appeal for voluntary conservation.Power Warning – If conditions do not improve, a power warning stating that an immediate reduction in power usage is needed to help protect the region’s electricity system will be issued.If conditions do not improve after public conservation appeals, ISO-NE may implement emergency procedures which would require RMLD to implement a 5% voltage reduction. This is within the acceptable voltage range for most appliances and equipment, but some voltage sensitive equipment may be affected, and these customers should plan accordingly.If the regional system is still in a state of emergency after the above steps have been taken, ISO-NE may mandate load shedding and rolling blackouts to protect the regional grid.If ISO-NE implements any of the above steps, RMLD will post a message on our website and Twitter, as well as send an email to RMLD customers whose email addresses are on file.Click HERE for cooling center locations.Tips to Conserve:Turn off unnecessary lights and electronics.Delay using appliances such as washers, dryers, dishwashers, & humidifiers and dehumidifiers until after the predicted peak window.If you are running air conditioning, raise the temperature setting by a few degrees (from 70 to 74, for example).Delay running pool pumps until after the predicted peak window.(NOTE: The above announcement is from RMLD.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Conventional wisdom said the Cardinals’ gameplan against the 49ers would be to run, run and run some more.San Francisco had the NFL’s worst rushing defense and the Cardinals, meanwhile, were without starting QB Carson Palmer but had electric second-year back David Johnson.Johnson finished Arizona’s 33-21 win with 157 yards and two touchdowns on 27 carries and another 28 yards on three receptions. His 30 touches easily led the team. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson (31) runs from San Francisco 49ers linebacker Nick Bellore, middle, and defensive end Taylor Hart (96) during the second half of an NFL football game in Santa Clara, Calif., Thursday, Oct. 6, 2016. (AP Photo/Ben Margot) Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling LISTEN: Luke and Paige Show Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “I was hoping to get Andre (Ellington) some (touches), but he was hot, you know,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said of Johnson.Arians said Johnson only tapped out once, and at that point, Ellington took over and also did a good job.“I like that one-two punch,” he said.Ellington picked up 19 yards on six carries, but it was easily Johnson who stole the show and carried the Cardinals on this night.Johnson’s 157 rushing yards were the most for any NFL player this season, and he earned them with his unique blend of power, speed, quickness and agility.“I feel unstoppable, basically,” Johnson said of the kind of zone he was in. “Especially with the help of the guys blocking, the tight ends, the receivers and obviously the O-line. It helps me get going, it helps me get into the flow of being able to break some tackles, being able to get the yards that we need.”Johnson’s performance was one the Cardinals needed and his teammates marveled at.“Dave, he is the catalyst — he makes it go offensively,” receiver Larry Fitzgerald said. “When he starts getting his groove, teams start coming down to the box. It gives us opportunities to make some plays behind the defense in the passing game. “Some of the cuts and some of the things he’s able to do on the field, you just don’t see that too often. He’s truly a special player and person, for that matter.”Part of the fun for the Cardinals in this one, besides winning, of course, was how they went about it offensively. The Cardinals gained more yards on the ground than through the air, with Johnson, Ellington and Stepfan Taylor combining for 35 rushing attempts.Drew Stanton only threw 28 passes and was sacked once.“I’m continually growing and getting more comfortable, especially with some of the vets on our team,” Johnson said of being asked to essentially carry the team in a game. “Larry, every time I run the ball, he’s jumping on my back and getting excited. That pumps me up.“Just to see Jermaine’s (Gresham) passion on the field, the way he gets after guys. He’s always talking and telling us to run it on his side. He’s demanding us run towards him. That definitely pumps me up and keeps me going.”Stanton said being able to just hand the ball to Johnson and watch him go was a blessing, and noted how center A.Q. Shipley did a great job of identifying fronts and making sure the line was matching up well with the 49ers, especially after losing guards Evan Mathis and Mike Iupati to injury. He also called Johnson “a luxury to have.” Top Stories 0 Comments Share The 49ers knew the Cardinals wanted to run the ball, yet were powerless to stop him.“That’s what we expected of him the whole time, you know,” Arians said. “He doesn’t have to do it all, just take what’s there. He left a few yards out there, but you know, big third-down catch.”Arians then, as has been his custom this season, made sure to point out that Johnson was not perfect.“Everything he’s capable of, just — he did put the ball on the ground one time and we hurried up on a 3rd-and-6 so that they couldn’t review it. And it cost us, we had to go for a field goal, but we would have probably lost it on a challenge.”So there’s that. If nothing else, the ability to just pound the football over and over and over again is something that gets the whole team fired up.“Yes, yes,” left tackle Jared Veldheer said of enjoying a run-based offense. “It was awesome. Having David be able to turn it on and play that kind of game is great.”Even Fitzgerald, who as a receiver probably wants the ball to come his way more than it does, summed up Johnson and his night nicely.“Just, looking in the offensive linemen’s eyes and seeing Jermaine (Gresham) getting after it,” he said. “When they know you’re running the football and they’re having trouble stopping it, that’s just physical domination at its best, and it’s a great feeling. “Especially when you’ve got a back that you know you’ve just got to cover your guy up and he can get the job done. It’s fun blocking for a guy like that.”Follow Adam Green on Twitter – / 31 The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo
