Sourabh wins Vietnam Open

first_imgHo Chi Minh City: India’s Sourabh Verma registered a thrilling three-game win over China’s Sun Fei Xiang to claim the men’s singles title at the USD 75,000 Vietnam Open BWF Tour Super 100 badminton tournament here on Sunday. Second seed Sourabh, who has won the Hyderabad Open and Slovenian International earlier this year, recovered from a mid-game slump to beat Sun 21-12 17-21 21-14 in the summit clash which lasted an hour and 12 minutes. “I am very happy with the way, I played this week. I played three Japanese and these players have similar kind of style. Most like to attack and the little differences in their style is something you have to figure out on the court. So it was nice to beat them,” Sourabh told PTI.

This title will give a boost to my confidence,” the Indian said. It was a third career meeting between Sourabh and Sun. The duo has faced off twice this year at Canada and Hyderabad with the Indian coming up trumps on both the occasions. Talking about the final match, the world no 38 Indian said: “In the first game, I waited for his weak returns. I realised his defence was a little weak, so I looked to exploit that. He committed too many unforced errors and it helped me.

But after the change of side in the decider, I went back to the strategy that worked for me and I am happy I could win,” added the National champion. Asked if he will play the USD 400,000 Korea Open World Tour Super 500 event to be held from September 24 to 29, Sourabh said: “I will head back home now and depending on the condition of my body and the time required to recover, I will take a call if I want to go to Korea or not.” In the finals, Sourabh dominated the proceedings in the opening game as he jumped to a 4-0 lead early on and kept moving ahead. He enjoyed a 11-4 cushion at the break and surged to a 15-4 advantage after the breather. Sun tried to recover but the gap was too wide to be bridged as Sourabh pocketed the first game comfortably. The Chinese came out all guns blazing in the second game, zooming to a 8-0 lead. He lead 11-5 at the interval and even though the Indian tried to make a comeback, it proved an uphill task as Sun roared back into the contest. In the decider, Sun had a slender 4-2 lead initially but Sourabh ensured he enjoyed 11-7 advantage at the breather. The Indian then maintained his lead, despite the Chinese snapping at his heels. Leading 17-14, Sourabh blasted off the next four points to shut the door on his opponent and win his third title of the year. The 26-year-old from Madhya Pradesh had won the Dutch Open and Korea Open last year.last_img read more

Snowflake generation of students hostility to free speech revealed

The “snowflake” generation of students’ hostility to free speech on campus has been revealed in a new survey which shows that the majority want controversial speakers to be “no-platformed”.Students were presented with a list of hypothetical speakers holding a spectrum of contentious views, ranging from someone believes climate change is not caused by humans, to someone want to ban religion.Assuming the speaker had already been invited to give a talk at their university, students were asked whether or not a talk should be allowed to go ahead.More than two-thirds of students (68 per cent) said that talks by Holocaust deniers should not be allowed to take place, according the a YouGov poll of 1,004 British students. –– ADVERTISEMENT ––Meanwhile 64 per cent said they would ban speakers who believe that terrorist attacks in the UK can be justified.One in ten students said that speakers who want to Royal Family to be abolished should be no-platformed.  In 2015, students attempted to stop Germaine Greer, a leading feminist, from giving a lecture at Cardiff University His intervention came after a series of attempts to censor gay rights activists, feminists and Conservative politicians due to concerns from students that their views may cause offence.   In 2015, students attempted to stop Germaine Greer, a leading feminist, from giving a lecture at Cardiff UniversityCredit: Jim Petersen Last October, the veteran lesbian activist Linda Bellos has been due to speak at Cambridge University, but a college feminist society revoked their invitation after she said she would be questioning trans politics. According to the poll, only 36 per cent of students said that speakers should be allowed to address students if they believe that transgender woman are not “real” women. Just under half (48 per cent) said the speaker should not be allowed, with the remaining 15 per cent answering “don’t know” or “prefer not to say”.Bristol University’s students’ union backed proposals to ban any “Terf” speakers who question the transgender status of women. Terf, which stands for Trans-Exclusionary Radical Feminists, is generally used as a derogatory term to describe those who believe that “identifying” as a woman is not the same as being born a woman.It can also be used to refer to people who are deemed to hold “transphobic” views. In 2015, students attempted to stop Germaine Greer, a leading feminist, from giving a lecture at Cardiff University on the basis that she had expressed transphobic views in the past. And a fifth said speakers should be banned if they believe that God literally created the universe in six days.Earlier this year, the higher education minister said that universities which “no-platform” controversial speakers will face a Government intervention. Sam Gyimah warned that universities must stamp out their “institutional hostility” to unfashionable views as he prepares to issue new guidance on free speech.

Norway stores pull violent games from shelves after attacks WoW included

first_imgFollowing the terror attacks in Norway two weekends ago, retailers in that country have begun to pull major shooter and role-playing games from their shelves.Gaming business site Gamasutra has compiled reports from Norwegian gaming and IT news sources showing that retailer Coop Norway made the first move by stopping carrying 51 gaming and toy brands. The stoppage mostly includes shooters such as Homefront, Counter-Strike Source, Call of Duty titles, and Sniper Ghost Warrior, but also World of Warcraft.Anders Behring Breivik, who committed the attacks in Oslo and the island of Utoeya and killed 77, had posted online a rambling 1500-page manifesto prior to the attacks mentioning WoW and Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and painting the author as part of a modern Knights Templar.Coop Norway director Geir Inge Stokke said in a Norwegian newspaper that the company moved to remove the games once “we realized the scope of the attack.” He added that it was appropriate at the moment to take the games down and mentioned the “negative effects of games like these.” Continuing, Stokke mentioned that the company will carefully consider when to put the games back on shelves, that the business involved is “of no importance,” and that he wouldn’t be surprised if other retailers followed suit.In fact, others have begun to fall in line. Norwegian entertainment seller Platekompaniet has pulled the same games from its shelves as well.The practice of removing games after a violent tragedy has a precedent in Europe. German store Galeria Kaufhof pulled all mature-rated games from its shelves following a 2009 school shooting.via GamasutraBlake’s OpinionMany countries have stricter attitudes toward violent entertainment than the United States. Germany, for example, makes the news several times a year for stopping the sale, or requiring serious modification, of particularly violent games.Stopping the sale of World of Warcraft and Call of Duty following their publication is a capricious and ineffective reaction. One level of Modern Warfare 2 aside, these games offer nothing of value to an aspiring terrorist. Moreover, it would require a perplexing combination of mental instability and determination to read 1,500 pages of nonsense and try everything the madman suggests. Stopping terrorist activity is always an admirable goal, but stopping selling a few games won’t prevent any would-be terrorist from plotting and only serves to annoy gamers.It is, however, free publicity for Coop Norway. The video games industry is thankfully outgrowing the outdated perception that this new form of entertainment is the primary cause of social ills. Bear in mind that The Beatles were viewed in a similar light by some in the 1960s. The recent declaration in the United States that video games are protected speech is a big step forward for the gaming cause worldwide, but that doesn’t mean that gaming won’t gradually gain acceptance in hearts and minds.last_img read more

An expensive plaque was also missing from the statue standing at Discovery Park in a Chula Vista neighborhood.City crews first used a pressure washer and then they scrubbed the rest of of the paint off using a brush Sunday.The evidence of what happened is still there. You can still see red paint splattered on the ground and the tint of red lingering on the statue.“It’s pretty weird to think someone came here this close to my house to vandalize something,” said Corona.Chula Vista Police believed the vandalism happened sometime Saturday night.Some called it violent. Others said it sent a powerful message.“The red represents or symbolizes the blood that’s been spilled by our people during that time,” said Lucky Morales, Community Activist.Lucky Morales is part of the Yaqui Indian Tribe. He didn’t condone the vandalism, but he agreed with the message. He said his people don’t want these statues around because of what Columbus stands for and because of the way the colonist treated his native people.“If anything, he brought genocide to these lands and he’s responsible for the annihilation of thousands of indigenous tribes, our ancestors,” said Lucky. “Why would we want to celebrate Columbus Day? It would be like us celebrating the murder of our ancestors.”The folks with UNICO, a local Italian American Association, said Columbus represents their journey and they celebrate him. Christopher Columbus Day is an important part of Italian American heritage.UNICO responded to the the vandalized Columbus statue saying, “The Italian-American community does not condone any violation against any statue of any kind representing cultural history. Columbus statues and days of celebration that are attacked do effect our claim to our heritage and contributions to the discovery expeditions.”Lucky said he didn’t believe the vandalism was an act of violence, but Corona said she didn’t feel safe when she saw it.“Just being at my house and then this close to here, a violent message like this really isn’t nice,” said Corona.Chula Vista Police are investigating. There’s no immediate leads about who vandalized the statue, but anyone with a tip for investigators is asked to contact CVPD.Lt. Dan Peak said the person responsible could face felony vandalism charges. center_img , San Diego community reflects on vandalized Columbus statuelast_img read more

Rep Eastman stands by controversial abortion statements attacks media

first_imgRep. David Eastman, R-Wasilla, during a House floor session, March 1, 2017. (Photo by Skip Gray/360 North)Last week, Representative David Eastman made national news by claiming that there are women in Alaska villages who are “glad” to become pregnant in order to travel to Seattle or Anchorage for an abortion – paid for by Medicaid. Eastman is now blaming the press for the furor over the comments.Listen nowAfter Mat-Su Valley Republican David Eastman made comments alleging the abuse of Medicaid-funded travel for abortions last week, he received significant criticism, including from his own caucus. Many saw Eastman’s singling out of women “in villages” as targeting Alaska Native women. Legislators on both sides of the aisle are now calling for Eastman to apologize.Over the weekend, it appeared Representative Eastman might do just that. On Saturday evening, Eastman appeared live on KTVA television.Here’s how Representative Eastman began the interview with anchor Bonney Bowman:“First, the media is a circus–literally a circus—and that’s about the nicest thing I could say about some people in the media right now.”Eastman spent the majority of the twelve-minute interview reiterating his position and blaming the media for the anger many people are directing at his comments.While the word “apologetic” did come up in the KTVA interview, Representative Eastman did not directly apologize for what he has said.“I am very apologetic that anyone would think I was targeting them, or that I was thinking that somehow abortion is a good thing,” Eastman said. “I don’t think it’s a good thing. I think it hurts women, and certainly it hurts children.”Legislators representing rural Alaskans have been sharply critical of Eastman’s comments. Last Friday, four Representatives, including Speaker of the House Bryce Edgmon, sent Eastman a letter demanding an apology, and Anchorage Democrat Geran Tarr called for Eastman to be censured.Representative Eastman has not provided verifiable evidence to back up his controversial claims. In a statement by email on Monday, he said that he is protecting anonymity, including of one case in which he said the State of Alaska pressured a woman to go through with an abortion after she changed her mind. In the same statement, Eastman said Medicaid travel policies should be evaluated, and he has called on the state to look into their abuse.Senator Donny Olson, a Democrat from Golovin, said he is pro-life, but told his fellow Senators on Monday that Representative Eastman’s comments went “beyond the pale.” Olson is a medical doctor with more than thirty years of experience in rural Alaska. He said Eastman’s claims, in his experience, are simply not true.“They do not go out there and get pregnant so they can get a trip to Anchorage to terminate the pregnancym” Olson said. “Quite the contrary, people in my area, especially amongst the Alaska Native culture in rural areas, have an integrity and morality that enshrines throughout and adores babies.”House Minority Leader Charisse Millett was unavailable for an interview on Monday. The minority caucus issued a press release on Friday distancing itself from Eastman’s comments, and calling on him to apologize.last_img read more

The Future is Freaky in Pornhub Art Installation

first_imgStay on target Pornhub Maybe Wants To Buy TumblrPornhub Credits Government Shutdown For Traffic Increase It’s hard to imagine the world still standing in 50 years, let alone a utopian society where sex rules all.But Pornhub is daring to dream with a new immersive exhibition opening next month in Los Angeles.Starting July 14, Pornhub Nation invites people to the year 2069 (get it?), “with alien sex plants, DMV sex dungeons, and presidents who … proudly stand behind their secret sex tapes,” co-creator Maggie West explained.AdChoices广告The month-long installation features seven rooms designed by artists West and Ryder Ripps.“Pornhub Nation will serve to epitomize what this futuristic society could look like,” Pornhub VP Corey Price said in a statement.Start with the National Gallery—a collage of marquee lights, neon signs, and portraits of Pornhub Nation Presidents [and X-rated actresses] Asa Akira, Riley Reid, Abella Danger, and Joanna Angel. (Girl power!)From there, visit the National Sexurity ASSociation (NSA), with security camera feeds from other exhibits; the Domination Masochistic Vroomvroom (DMV), a cross between a BDSM dungeon and government office; and ASSA, Pornhub Nation’s space exploration program “devoted solely to exploring zero-gravity space sex.”“Pornhub Nation is a sexy, neon-drenched utopia where we can escape the banality [of] our everyday lives,” West explained of her futuristic creation.Co-designer Ripps, a self-professed “frequent user” of Pornhub’s services—”both within my ‘art’ and ‘personal’ practices” (his use of quotation marks, not mine)—described the project as “a lot of fun” and “ontologically stimulating.”“Come for the innate desire for human procreation, stay for the infinity mirrors and ball pit,” he said.Pornhub Nation (located at UNION nightclub, 4067 W. Pico Blvd.) will open to the public from July 14 to Aug. 17. Following the premiere, the installation will be open Tuesday to Sunday from 6 p.m. to 12 a.m. PT.Attendees must be 21 years or older (there is a bar).

Pair of researchers suggest black holes at center of galaxies might instead

first_img Back in 1974, space scientists discovered Sagittarius A* (SgrA ∗)—a bright source of radio waves emanating from what appeared to be near the center of the Milky Way galaxy. Subsequent study of the object led scientists to believe that it was (and is) a black hole—the behavior of stars nearby, for example, suggested it was something massive and extremely dense.What we’re able to see when we look at SgrA∗ are plasma gasses near the event horizon, not the object itself as light cannot escape. That should be true for wormholes too, of course, which have also been theorized to exist by the Theory of General Relativity. Einstein even noted the possibility of their existence. Unfortunately, no one has ever come close to proving the existence of wormholes, which are believed to be channels between different parts of the universe, or even between two universes in multi-universe theories. In their paper, Li and Bambi suggest that there is compelling evidence suggesting that many of the objects we believe to be black holes at the center of galaxies, may in fact be wormholes.Plasma gases orbiting a black hole versus a wormhole should look different to us, the pair suggest, because wormholes should be a lot smaller. Plus, the presence of wormholes would help explain how it is that even new galaxies have what are now believed to be black holes—such large black holes would presumably take a long time to become so large, so how can they exist in a new galaxy? They can’t Li and Bambi conclude, instead those objects are actually wormholes, which theory suggests could spring up in an instant, and would have, following the Big Bang.Making the two’s speculation more exciting is the soon to be installed piece of equipment known as GRAVITY—it will be added to the European Space Observatory in Chili, giving researchers there an unprecedented view of SgrA∗ (and other black holes). In just a couple of years, it should be possible to prove whether Li and Bambi’s idea is correct or not—the photon capture sphere of the wormhole should be much smaller than that for a black hole, they note—if that’s the case with SgrA ∗, space scientists will have to do some serious rethinking of wormholes and how they might fit in to current theories describing the universe. More information: Distinguishing black holes and wormholes with orbiting hot spots, arXiv:1405.1883 [gr-qc] arxiv.org/abs/1405.1883AbstractThe supermassive black hole candidates at the center of every normal galaxy might be wormholes created in the early Universe and connecting either two different regions of our Universe or two different universes in a Multiverse model. Indeed, the origin of these supermassive objects is not well understood, topological non-trivial structures like wormholes are allowed both in general relativity and in alternative theories of gravity, and current observations cannot rule out such a possibility. In a few years, the VLTI instrument GRAVITY will have the capability to image blobs of plasma orbiting near the innermost stable circular orbit of SgrA∗, the supermassive black hole candidate in the Milky Way. The secondary image of a hot spot orbiting around a wormhole is substantially different from the one of a hot spot around a black hole, because the photon capture sphere of the wormhole is much smaller, and its detection could thus test if the center of our Galaxy harbors a wormhole rather then a black hole.

India’s overall lead stood at 339 runs Given the frailty in New Zealand’s lower order and that the pitch at Eden Gardens had variable bounce it was never a doubt that the hosts would not win this match The question as such was about when and not if There has been a lot of debate about attendance during this second Test and that the Eden Gardens looked empty The truth however is that nearly 15000 have come to watch the match everyday just that the sheer size of this ground has not impressed upon this fact Virat Kohli gestures after India pick up another wicket during day four of the 2nd Test against New Zealand Even so it is a reduced attendance by Kolkata’s standards Usually a home Test does garner about 25000-30000 people every day Could the build up to Durga Puja be the reason It was fitting then that homeboys Wriddhiman Saha and Mohammed Shami helped end the match quickly on Monday Now the festivities can begin in earnest All was dependent on the end of the Indian innings thereafter Would India declare Well with every passing Test this topic is becoming more interesting For all the talk about his aggressive persona Virat Kohli tends to play it cool whenever the time to make this decision comes about It happened first in the second Test in Sri Lanka then earlier this year in West Indies at St Lucia And now for two matches running against New Zealand India have batted for longer than needed No it is not to say that this is a defensive trait in the Indian captain Instead it is a calculative ploy With time on their hands the team management tends to let the game flow to a point from where there are only two possibilities – win or draw Then the bowlers push themselves almost in a backbreaking manner to force the issue and narrow it down to one outcome – a win for India Declaration as such wasn’t on the cards at all but for a second time in the match Wriddhiman Saha batted as per his team requirements If the first innings was about putting India in a gainful position then in the second innings it was about driving that same advantage home With two half-centuries in his home Test then let it be said here there is no competition for India’s first-choice Test keeper-batsman at the moment Chasing an improbable 376 New Zealand openers batted out an hour before lunch Did it raise hope for the outcome of the match in their favour a slight shift towards the draw if not an Indian win Perhaps Tom Latham and Martin Guptill showed for a brief period that this pitch was conducive for a fighting batting performance A grind with both bat and ball was about to ensue 55/0 at lunch and there was no inkling that the match would wrap up before stumps in the next two sessions Even when the Kiwis were placed at 135/3 with drift from the Indian spinners accounting for Guptill and Henry Nicholls it was still a question mark a matter of inducing a collapse on a day four pitch As with the target this was an improbability And yet it happened in awe-striking fashion as the visitors lost seven wickets for 62 runs in the final session This is where credit must go to the Indian captain and his bowlers Kohli can sight victory on the horizon like a bloodhound smells its prey from afar and then the obvious thing to do is move in for the kill Feeding off the crowd’s energy he goaded his bowlers into taking those wickets Tom Latham’s wicket was a huge bonus The thinking bowler that he is Ashwin beat him outside the off-stump and again that additional drift lured the batsman in inducing that edge Thereafter it became the Shami show as he bowled with the Kolkata crowd at his back Through days one to four collectively speaking this has been a Test match where the pacers brilliance on an atypical sub-continental wicket has been beautiful to watch: from the movement Matt Henry and Bhuvneshwar Kumar generated to the hard work put in by Trent Boult and Neil Wagner Shami provided the final flourish Maybe the lbw against Mitchell Santner was marginal going down leg But the ball that destroyed BJ Watling’s stumps was a peach When Kumar chipped in knocking back Jeetan Patel’s off-stump in a cartwheel the performance was complete Soon the victory too was And so India regained the no1 ranking in Test cricket and in a proper manner like Pakistan had done it by playing some wonderful cricket It was this squad’s goal to get to that ranking

FBI director Robert Mueller as special counsel overseeing the federal government’s Russia investigation has dramatically raised the legal and political stakes and put Trump’s young presidency in dangerous waters just four months after he was sworn into office (From left) US President Donald Trump and former FBI director Robert Mueller AP White House and campaign records may be subpoenaed and Trump’s presidential privilege to keep West Wing conversations private could be challenged Current and former staffers will likely have to hire pricey lawyers and sit for interviews Trump himself may have to answer questions And even if Trump’s campaign is ultimately cleared of wrongdoing the shadow of an investigation will hang over the White House for months or even years "They will govern with constant fear of bombshell news being around the corner" said Julian Zelizer a history professor at Princeton University Trump has long maintained that he and his associates had no nefarious ties to Russia In a written statement shortly after Mueller’s appointment was announced Trump said a thorough investigation will confirm "there was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity" The Justice Department’s decision to put Mueller in charge of the investigation comes as the White House was already reeling from a series of self-inflicted controversies Last week Trump stunningly fired FBI director James Comey who was overseeing the Russia probe In a brazen warning to Comey Trump suggested he may have tapes of their conversations Undeterred Comey’s associates then revealed that the former FBI chief has a memo of a meeting with Trump in which the president asks for the investigation into ousted national security adviser Michael Flynn to be stopped Controversy is nothing new for Trump As a candidate he often careened from one crisis to the next including the release of a video in which he was heard making predatory comments about women His response often followed a familiar pattern: blaming the media for peddling "fake news" lashing out at his rivals and creating provocative distractions often with a well-timed tweet He’s tried to deploy that same playbook to tamp down the Russia controversy He’s repeatedly panned both the FBI investigation and concurrent probes on Capitol Hill as a "hoax" He’s blamed Democrats for leveling allegations of Russian collusion as a way to explain their crushing defeats in last year’s elections And he’s urged not only his supporters but also the FBI to focus more on the leaks about the investigation that have deepened questions about possible Russia connections Presidential historian Douglas Brinkley said Trump is "not going to be able to jive his way out" of the Mueller-led probe "He wanted to make it out as media and Democratic warfare" Brinkley said "But now with Mueller being chosen and the GOP backing the Justice Department decision Trump is truly going to be held to the standards of justice" In his statement Wednesday night Trump said he planned to focus on "fighting for the people and the issues that matter most to the future of our country" But the snowballing Russia controversy has overshadowed much of his agenda and raised questions about whether Republican lawmakers will be willing to take tough votes supporting a president under the cloud of investigation As special counsel Mueller will have all the same powers as a US attorney though he will still ultimately report to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein Still he is not subject to the day-to-day supervision of the Justice Department The situation is similar to the investigation into whether officials in President George W Bush’s administration leaked the name of CIA operative Valerie Plame to reporters Comey who was then serving as deputy attorney general tapped Patrick Fitzgerald to lead the probe which led to the conviction of a top White House official In the 1990s President Bill Clinton was engulfed by an independent counsel investigation that started as a probe into failed land deals but ultimately exposed his affair with a White House intern He was impeached by the House but acquitted by the Senate Jennifer Palmieri who worked in the Clinton administration and later on Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign offered a dire warning for Trump aides on what could come in a White House facing the pressures of an
