Craig McMillan to step down as New Zealand batting coach after 2019 ICC World Cup

first_imgNew Zealand batting coach Craig McMillan will step down from the position after the 2019 cricket World Cup.The 42-year-old, who is holding the position for the past five years, said that with “more and more” cricket every year his family had to make a lot of sacrifices. Within myself I knew that it is time for change, he continued.”I spoke to the family because they are the ones that have had to make a lot of sacrifices over the last five years, just with the amount of cricket in this day and age. It just gets more and more every year. And I sort of knew within myself that it was time for a change for me,” ESPNcricinfo quoted McMillan, as saying.Under McMillan’s guidance, New Zealand had made it to the final of the 2015 World Cup. The coach admitted that the achievement is “really special” for him.”To be involved in such an incredible World Cup on home soil and see the way the country embraced the team was really special. It’s been a privilege to be able to work with the likes of Brendon McCullum, Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor day-in and dayout and to see the records they’ve accomplished has been very satisfying; as has the development of younger players like Tom Latham and Henry Nicholls,” he said.New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson praised McMillan’s cricketing knowledge and said that the team would definitely miss him.”Macca has a huge passion for the game and he’s constantly trying to challenge players to get better. He has a lot of cricket knowledge and will certainly be missed by the group, although maybe his fielding warm-ups on those cold mornings won’t be,” Williamson said.advertisementAccording to New Zealand Cricket (NZC) CEO David White, the new batting coach will be appointed before their Test tour of Sri Lanka in August.Also Watch:last_img read more

Canada to formally apologize in November for turning away German Jews in

first_imgOTTAWA – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada will formally apologize in November for turning away a boat of German Jews seeking asylum in 1939, which led to the deaths of more than 200 people.Trudeau says it was a moral failure on the part of the government of the day.The MS St. Louis ship had 907 Jews, who were fleeing Nazi persecution, aboard when it was turned away from both Cuba and the United States before a group of Canadians tried to convince then-prime minister Mackenzie King’s government to let it dock in Halifax.King was unable to convince Frederick Blair, the director of the immigration branch of the federal Department of Mines and Resources, to allow them into the country.The ship returned to Europe and many found safety in countries like Holland, the U.K. and France, but 254 of those on board eventually died in the Holocaust after returning to Germany.Trudeau says he announced the date for the apology on a call Thursday with the Canadian Rabbinic Caucus, a national body of rabbis.The prime minister says the government will make the apology in the House of Commons on Nov. 7.last_img read more

Moroccan Minister of Health to Close Bouya Omar Shrine

Rabat – Moroccan Minister of Health Houcine El Ouardi said on Wednesday that the Mausoleum of Bouya Omar, a facility 50 kilometers outside Marrakech where hundreds of mentally ill are often kept in chains and completely cut off from the outside world, will be replaced with a modern institution.The Minister presented, the results of a survey conducted on the Mausoleum of Bouya Omar on Wednesday at Kelaât Sraghna. The Mausoleum is believed to have supernatural healing powers for mentally ill people and thoe addicted to drugs.According to the survey conducted over a period of more than six months by a group of psychiatrists, more than 700 people were interned in Bouya Omar in “miserable conditions” where they underwent “practices violating human rights.” The survey found that “the mentally ill are the economic engine of the region.”Houcine El Ouardi expressed in late 2013 his intention to close the center after the Moroccan Alliance for Citizenship and Human Rights brought the conditions of the Mausoleum patients to the attention of a United Nations delegation.This center is the resting place of a marabout who died in sixteenth century, which is credited as the source of supernatural powers. The place attracts over 30,000 visitors each year who come to pray at the tomb of the marabout, seeking the “Baraka” (blessings) of the saint. read more

Heroin users asked to surrender drug to police

(Update)Potentially fatal drugs are being blamed for a recent increase in drug related overdoses and deaths in Hamilton. And so far, police don’t know what the dangerous substance is — or where it’s from. Tonight, Hamilton Public Health is cautioning intravenous users about the drugs, and is trying to get overdose prevention kits into the hands of those who need them.Today, we spoke with the family of one of three people in Hamilton who have died of a suspected heroin overdose. They say they hope this latest effort by police and public health can help prevent further deaths.Darlene Bearfoot is Pauline Bearfoot’s mother: “There’s a lot of people in the world don’t care. Give drugs to whoever and they don’t care. She was only 23-years old and now I’m never going to be able to hold her.”Just one day after laying her to rest, Darlene Bearfoot clutches a photo of her daughter Pauline. She died August 8th of a possible heroin overdose.Darlene: “I just want people to know how beautiful she was and how happy she made everybody.”While they knew she was a user, Pauline’s death still came as a shock to her aunt and namesake Pauline Bearfoot and Uncle Herb DucePauline: “I heard that they tried to revive her a couple of times and the last time they just couldn’t bring her back. My mom died the same day last year so it was really, really hard.”Herb Duce: “Whoever is out there doing this stuff, selling this stuff to these kids, they should stop. Life’s too short, you know.”It’s a recent spike in overdoses and deaths that has prompted Hamilton police to issue a warning to intravenous drug users about potentially fatal drugs being sold on the street.Hamilton police Deputy Chief Eric Girt: “Both the police and the coroner are unable to determine the exact origin, content and specific mixture of drugs.”While police are asking people with illicit drugs to turn them over for testing, Hamilton Public Health is reminding anyone who uses heroin or other opioids of the ways to reduce risk.Dr Elizabeth Richardson: “Use small amounts first, use test doses and pace yourself. Never use alone. Use with someone you trust and make sure the people you’re with know you’ve been using.”Since May, Hamilton Public Health has distributed 50 free overdose prevention kits in the city, and are urging anyone who uses heroin or other opioids to get one.“This is the first time we’ve have an increase in overdoses too see. So, we’re really hoping this will help get those kits out there.”Pauline Bearfoot’s mother also wants the program to work.Darlene: “I hope so before this happens to another child because that’s the worst thing that can happen. You’re not supposed to lose your children before you.”Police have not confirmed the number of deaths that have occurred over the last month due to drug use. They’re waiting on the office of the coroner’s investigating and toxicology results.Additional video: News Now coverage of the Hamilton Police news conference: read more

Broad participation in Burundi referendum shows support for peace Security Council says

In a statement read by the Council President for March, Brazilian Permanent Representative Ronaldo Mota Sardenberg, the Council called on “all Burundians to remain committed to the course of national reconciliation, for further steps remain to be taken.”It urged donors to contribute funds for free and fair local and national elections and encouraged the political leadership to work holding those polls expeditiously, Ambassador Sardenberg said.In a new report to the Council, meanwhile, Secretary-General Kofi Annan says the achievements called for in Burundi’s peace process, leading to elections and the demobilization of former combatants, continue to make progress, despite the impact of political tensions and the influence of “sectarian and individual interests.”The peaceful extension of the transitional phase, the preparations for elections, though now delayed, and the beginning of the demobilization, disarmament and reintegration (DDR) process have shown progress, he says.”Key tasks must now be completed without delay,” including approving an electoral code and communal law, choosing realistic dates for the electoral calendar and beginning the integration of former combatants into the nation’s military and police sectors, Mr. Annan says in his third report on the work of the UN Operation in Burundi (ONUB).Regional and international communities have played a central role in supporting the peace process, “often navigating through complex and delicate elements of the transition,” he says.”It is obvious that the sustainability of peace after the elections will require the same, if not an increased, level of regional and international engagement to provide assurances for all sectors of Burundian society,” Mr. Annan says.To lay the foundation for a lasting peace and national reconciliation, once a new government is installed it must tackle the culture of impunity, which had contributed to the conflict, he says. read more

Blinddeaf drummer beats physical hurdles

first_imgSome people achieve so much, despite the odds, that they inspire those around them. Vaughn Brown, a deaf-blind percussionist and music educator, is one of those inspiring people.Clapping out the beat, Brown turned toward his student, Leilani Towner, who sat at Brown’s drum kit, pounding out a rhythm.“Excellent!” Brown said. “Let’s speed it up a bit.”He clapped a faster beat. Leilani played the piece again. Smiling, Brown nodded.Brown, 27, graduated from Berklee College of Music, a prestigious private school in Boston, in May. He earned a bachelor’s degree in music with a focus on education and performance. Now he’s back in Vancouver teaching private lessons and looking for a day job to pay the bills.“He didn’t consider that he had barriers,” said Jennifer Langley, who was Brown’s music teacher at Washington State School for the Blind. “He just shined. Everything he did, he did to not just his best ability, but to the best ability possible. He had that kind of moral fortitude you’d want everyone to have. He inspired everyone.”Facing challengesWhen Brown was six months old, a life-threatening illness left him deaf. At age 4, he started losing his vision due to a genetic condition. Despite those challenges, his family insisted on treating him exactly the same as his brother. “It is important for families of children with disabilities to look pass the ‘can’ts’ and encourage the ‘cans,’” Brown said. “Families should let their children do what they want to do. Be what they want to be. I’m independent because I’ve been exposed to going into public, going to concerts, riding the bus. Life.”last_img read more

5 Reasons Tax Free Weekend Might Be A Bad Deal

first_imgTax-free weekend starts Friday in Texas. The three-day break lets families buy backpacks, sneakers and blue jeans with no sales tax, which seems like a straightforward way to save.Brakeyshia Samms is a state policy fellow with the Center for Public Policy Priorities, a research group in Austin. She’s a self-titled “unapologetic tax policy wonk“ and she says the tax holiday is a bad deal for Texas families. Here are her five reasons why she says that’s the case.The KERA radio story5 Reasons Sales Tax Holidays Aren’t A Good Deal1. They favor families with more money to spend: “For families who live paycheck to paycheck, it’s very difficult to time your purchases because you have rent, you have groceries that you need every month,” Samms says. “So wealthier families have the luxury of timing their purchases for the weekend of sales tax holidays because they have that extra cash flow.”2. Some stores jack up prices for sales tax holidays: “Stores will actually have a better deal the week before tax free weekend holidays, or the week after,” she says. “They mark stuff up and they water sales down.”3. The holiday is open to tourists and residents in nearby states: “They’re not a contributing member to our state economy, which isn’t helpful for hard-working Texas families,” Samms says.4. The state takes a big revenue hit: “So, the tax sales holiday, you lose about $70 million  a year,” Samms says. “And so if you have that revenue plus other things with tax policy you can invest in those services that are really, really critical to families living paycheck to paycheck.”5. They don’t help the economy grow: “Consumers actually don’t spend more, they just time their purchases differently. So if there was no sales tax holiday, they would have bought the purchase any weekend,” Samms says.Sales Tax Holidays Across The CountryCheck out this map of all the U.S. sales tax holidays, back to school and otherwise, from the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy.Copyright 2016 KERA-FM.

Star Trek Discovery Season 2 Episode 6 Recap What Prime Directive

first_img ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ S2 Finale Recap: When No One Has Gone Before’Star Trek: Discovery’ Season 2, Ep 13 Recap: Tearful Preparations How do you top a three-episode arc about journeying into the mycelial network and the emotional resurrection of a beloved character? Well, you don’t. Instead, Star Trek: Discovery went back to the basics with an episode fully of exploration, social change, sci-fi action and… well, discovery. This week we’re catching up with Saru, and the big cliffhanger from two weeks ago. The show would have gotten to it last week, but there were more pressing issues. Like getting Tilly back, saving the mycelial network and resurrecting Culber (yay!) For now, he’s in med by still trying to process exactly what’s happening to him. Fortunately, he has a confident, reassuring buddy in Saru. He’s in there trying to figure out what this previously undiscovered phase of Kelpien life is. His fear receptors are being suppressed, and he’s growing teeth-like spikes where his fear ganglia used to be.As much as he’s learning about his own species, we learn even more about them this week. With Tilly’s mycelial mess cleared up (for now), it’s back to hunting down the red signals appearing all over space. The latest appears over Kaminar. To get us all up to speed, Saru gives everyone a crash course in Kaminar society. The predator species is called the Ba’ul. The Kelpiens are kept subservient by their awe and fear of the Ba’ul’s superior technology. They want desperately to preserve the status quo, which is where the “get eaten or go insane” lie about what the Kelpien’s assume is their death process comes from. Ba’ul technology, we learn, is how Saru came across Starfleet in the first place. Desperate not to be eaten, he stole a piece of tech and sent a distress signal into space. It was picked up by Philippa Georgiou and the whole universe opened up for him.Sonequa Martin-Green as Burnham; Doug Jones as Saru; Hannah Spear as Siranna–Photo Cr: Michael Gibson/CBSSince the isolationist Ba’ul refuse to communicate, Burnham and Saru beam down to his former village to ask a Kelpien priest if they’ve seen anything. That’s where we learn the Ba’ul have installed pylons by every Kelpien village to keep an eye on them. Saru’s return from space with an alien species doesn’t go unnoticed. Saru runs into his sister, Siranna, who became the village’s priest after his disappearance. I loved this scene. It was packed with the sense of wonder that we want from Star Trek, coming from both Sirana meeting another species for the first time, and from Burnham’s interest in a new alien world. There’s so much beauty and wonder packed into this short scene, and it reminds you of everything you love about this franchise.It doesn’t last long, though. First, Saru angers Siranna, revealing that the only reason he came back was to investigate the red light that appeared in the sky. Not for her. The, the Ba’ul start threatening the village, and Burnham and Saru need to beam out of there before the situation gets out of hand. That just makes things worse. When Burnham and Saru get back on the Discovery, the Ba’ul are much more willing to talk. They want Saru back. And their interest only increases when they learn that he has evolved. And they’re willing to destroy his whole village to get him back. Saru disobeys orders and surrenders himself to the Ba’ul. Once taken captive, he finds they’ve brought Siranna too. She’s seen too much.Hannah Cheesman as Airiam 2.5–Photo Cr: Michael Gibson/CBSBurnham finds it odd that the Ba’ul’s demands grew more forceful after they learn Saru survived the Vahar’ai. She, Tilly and Airiam comb through the planet’s history in the Sphere’s data. It turns out that at one point, the evolved Kelpiens nearly wiped out the Ba’ul. They used to be the predators. That’s what caused them to develop the technology to institute a fake balance that benefited them. Meanwhile, Saru is discovering the same thing. When the Ba’ul restrain him, a protective collar appears where his ganglia used to be and shoots spikes at the threat. The Ba’ul reveal they see evolved Kelpiens as beings who can only be monsters. That’s how they’ve justified subjugating them all these years.After a genuinely fun action scene in which an evolved Saru kicks some serious ass (never expected to see that), he uses the same technology he used to send his distress signal in the first place on a much larger scale. He triggers Vahar’ai in every Kelpien on the planet. With them all going through it at once, they all learn that the balance as enforced by the Ba’ul is a lie. As for what the truth is, that’ll take years for them to figure out. But now, they’re asking questions. That’s a threat to the Ba’ul, who activates the pylons to wipe out every Kelpien village in existence. It’s too much for the Discovery to handle, but they don’t need to. The red angel appears before Saru, unleashing a powerful electromagnetic blast that disables the Ba’ul lasers.Doug Jones as Saru–Photo Cr: Best Possible Screengrab/CBSYes, it’s a massive Deus Ex Machina, but it’s so tied to the season arc, it’s not bothered here. While it would have arguably been more fun and more Star Trek for the Discovery crew to think of a scientific (or technobabble-disguised magic) solution, we’ve been chasing the red angel for six episodes now. The Red Angel didn’t just come out of nowhere. We know it shows up when things are dire and people need to be saved. Why is still a mystery, and one that both the scientific and military-minded factions aboard the Discovery are very interested in solving. It may not be saving the world with science, but its wonder and exploration still feels very Trek.Star Trek: Discovery really seems to be coming into its own in the seconds season. It’s finding its own unique take on Star Trek, which has involved more than a few pitfalls. It also delivers some incredible highs and unexpected moments. Here, we went to an alien world, were hailed by a hostile species and upended societal assumptions with a disregard for the non-interference directive that would make James T. Kirk proud. Seriously, Saru altered the evolutionary path of an entire planet and nobody batted an eye. I guess when the alternative is sacrificing a crewmember, an innocent priest and potentially allowing a genocide to happen, there’s not much room for debate. It’s exciting to see Discovery find its place in the Star Trek canon. I’m excited to see how it continues to evolve.Star Trek: Discovery streams Thursdays at 8:30 p.m. on CBS All Access.Previously on Star Trek: Discovery:‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Season 2, Episode 4 Recap‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Season 2 Episode 3 Recap‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Season 2, Episode 2 Recap Stay on targetlast_img read more

Say no to cheese omelettes for healthier heart

first_imgDo you savour cheese omelettes? If so, think again as consuming more eggs and dietary cholesterol may up the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and death from any cause, researchers have warned. The study suggests that egg yolks are one of the richest sources of dietary cholesterol among all commonly consumed foods. One large egg has 186 milligrams of dietary cholesterol in the yolk. “The take-home message is really about cholesterol, which happens to be high in eggs and specifically yolks,” said co-author Norrina Allen, Associate Professor at the Northwestern University. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”As part of a healthy diet, people need to consume lower amounts of cholesterol. People who consume less cholesterol have a lower risk of heart disease,” Allen added. For the study, which will be published in the journal JAMA, the team involved 29,615 adults from six prospective cohort studies for up to 31 years of follow up. They found eating 300 mg of dietary cholesterol per day was associated with 17 per cent higher risk of incident cardiovascular disease and 18 per cent higher risk of all-cause deaths. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveThe cholesterol was the driving factor independent of saturated fat consumption and other dietary fat, the team said. Eating three to four eggs per week was associated with 6 per cent higher risk of CVD and 8 per cent higher risk of any cause of death, they added. The researchers say that eating less than 300 milligrams of dietary cholesterol per day was the guideline recommendation before 2015. However, the most recent dietary guidelines omitted a daily limit for dietary cholesterol. The guidelines also include weekly egg consumption as part of a healthy diet. An adult in the US gets an average of 300 milligrams per day of cholesterol and eats about three or four eggs per week.
