Several parts of Odisha received heavy rain. (File)
The cyclonic storm, DAYE, that formed over northwest Bay of Bengal on Thursday crossed south Odisha and north Andhra Pradesh coast, close to Gopalpur, early today, bringing heavy rains and strong winds in various districts in the region. The Indian Meteorological Department or IMD said the storm is moving west-northwestwards and is expected to weaken gradually.
As the cyclonic storm made a landfall, it brought heavy to very heavy rainfall in Gajapati, Ganjam, Puri, Rayagada, Kalahandi, Koraput, Malkangiri and Nabarangpur districts of Odisha, officials said.
Under its impact, heavy to very heavy rainfall is likely to hit several places in Rayagada, Kalahandi, Koraput and Nabarangpur districts till Saturday, the weather office said.
Even as the storm has passed, it is likely that areas along and off south Odisha and north Andhra Pradesh coasts may experience strong wind with speed reaching 60-70 km/hour gusting to 80 km/hour, the IMD said in a release.
The areas along and off West Bengal may experience squally wind with speed reaching 40-50 km/hour gusting to 60 km/hour for the next few hours, it added.
The IMD also warned that the state of sea would be rough over northwest Bay of Bengal, along and off south Odisha and north Andhra Pradesh coasts during the next few hours. It advised fishermen against venturing into sea.
Most of the areas of Odisha and coastal Andhra Pradesh will receive heavy rainfall, while some isolated areas may receive heavy to very heavy rainfall.
Rainfall in Telangana, Gangetic West Bengal, Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh is likely, the IMD said. Adjoining regions like Vidarbha, Rayalaseema, East Madhya Pradesh, West Madhya Pradesh and east Rajasthan may receive rainfall at isolated places.
The state government has instructed officials in coastal districts and various departments to be alert to tackle any emergency situation, official sources said.
Earlier on Thursday, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik held a review meeting and directed the officials to keep a close watch on the situation and take steps to ensure no loss of life. He also asked them to arrange adequate relief materials.
Mr Patnaik asked officials of the coastal districts to be alert and prepared.
Mr Patnaik also issued direction for cancelling holiday in government offices in Ganjam, Gajapati, Puri, Nayagarh and Khurda districts, which are likely to be hit by fierce winds.
Taking the situation into account, the NDRF and the ODRAF have been deployed in different districts. One NDRF team each has been deployed in Kalahandi, Rayagada, Gajapati, Puri, Nayagarh and Kandhamal districts with 17 boats and other emergency equipment.

दुबई: केदार जाधव को कभी भी ऑलराउंडर की कैटेगरी में शामिल नहीं किया गया. जाधव भी खुद को ऑलराउंडर नहीं मानते, लेकिन सच यह है कि वे भारतीय टीम के ‘गोल्डन आर्म’ बन गए हैं, जो तब विकेट दिलाते हैं, जब इसकी सख्त जरूरत होती है. एशिया कप में पाकिस्तान के खिलाफ भी उन्होंने तीन विकेट झटककर विरोधी टीम की कमर तोड़ दी थी.
नेट्स पर गेंदबाजी करने से बिगड़ सकती है लय
खुद को कामचलाऊ स्पिनर मानने वाले केदार जाधव नेट्स पर अधिक गेंदबाजी नहीं करते. उन्होंने कहा, ‘मैं नेट्स पर अधिक गेंदबाजी नहीं करता. ईमानदारी से कहूं तो मैं मैच से पहले अभ्यास सत्र में कुछ ही ओवर फेंकता हूं. मुझे लगता है कि अगर मैं नेट प्रैक्टिस में अपनी गेंदबाजी पर काम करने का प्रयास करता हूं तो इसमें जो भी कुछ अलग चीज है वह खत्म हो सकती है. इसलिए मैं अपनी सीमा में रहता हूं.’
42 मैचों में से सिर्फ 23 में गेंदबाजी की
33 साल के केदार जाधव भारत के लिए 42 वनडे मैचों में 19 विकेट ले चुके हैं. मैचों के लिहाज से उनके विकेट कम लग सकते हैं. वैसे, उनके कम विकेट का एक कारण यह भी है कि उन्हें 42 मैचों से सिर्फ 23 में ही गेंदबाजी करने का मौका मिला है. पैर की मांसपेशियों में खिंचाव से उबरने के बाद नेशनल टीम में वापसी कर रहे जाधव ने पाकिस्तान के खिलाफ तीन विकेट लिए थे.
धोनी ने कराई पहली बार गेंदबाजी
जाधव ने साथ ही याद किया कि किस तरह 2016 में जब पूर्व कप्तान महेंद्र सिंह धोनी ने न्यूजीलैंड के खिलाफ उन्हें गेंद थमाई तो उनके अंदर का गेंदबाज सामने आया. उन्होंने कहा, ‘धोनी भाई ने जब से न्यूजीलैंड के खिलाफ उस मैच में मुझे गेंदबाजी के लिए कहा, तब से मेरा जीवन पूरी तरह से बदल गया.’
मेरा काम विरोधी टीम पर दबाव बनाए रखना है
विकेट हासिल करने की क्षमता का कारण पूछने पर जाधव ने कहा, ‘मैं वह करने का प्रयास करता हूं, जिसकी मुझसे उम्मीद की जा रही है. मेरा का सही जगह पर गेंदबाजी करना है, ताकि अगर फील्डर सर्कल में है तो विरोधी टीम पर दबाव बना रहे. अगर मैं इसमें कायम रहा तो नतीजे अपने आप मिलते हैं और मुझे लगता है कि यही हो रहा है.’
भारत-पाक मैच हमेशा रोमांचक होते हैं
भारत को रविवार को एक बार फिर चिर प्रतिद्वंद्वी पाकिस्तान के खिलाफ खेलना है. इससे जुड़े सवाल पर जाधव ने कहा, ‘भारत-पाकिस्तान मैच हमेशा रोमांचक होते हैं. हम जीते और अच्छा महसूस कर रहे हैं लेकिन हम प्रत्येक टीम के साथ इसी जज्बे के साथ खेलते हैं.’
The 24-year-old woman had asked the court to remove her father’s role as guardian. (Representational)
A Saudi court has ruled in favour of a woman whose father refused to allow her to have a passport, local media reported Thursday, sending ripples in the kingdom which has long held to its male guardianship system.
The 24-year-old woman from the western city of Jeddah, whose name was not given, had asked the court to remove her father’s role as guardian after he refused to take the necessary steps to obtain a passport for her to study abroad, according to the pro-government daily Okaz and other Saudi media outlets.
The traditional Saudi system obliges women to obtain the permission of their closest male relative for many decisions, including travelling and marrying.
The Saudi court ordered the plaintiff’s father to provide her with a passport, according to the media reports, which did not say when the unusual ruling was made.
According to the Okaz daily, the young woman in question lives with her mother and has not seen her father for six years.
The ultra-conservative kingdom has in recent months initiated a string of social reforms which have slightly loosened the restrictions on women, including allowing them to drive cars, attend football matches and enter areas of employment previously reserved for men, such as notarial work.
Its part of the country’s wide-ranging “Vision 2030” programme, approved in April 2016, which also includes privatising part of oil giant Aramco and creating a $2 trillion sovereign wealth fund.
As well as elevating the role of women in the workforce, the programme also foresees massive investment in the underdeveloped entertainment sector to boost domestic spending.
The court’s decision provoked numerous reactions on social media.
“I’m surprised at the contradictions in the system,” one Saudi woman tweeted.
“Finally the father is obliged to order a passport despite himself. Why aren’t women allowed to obtain their own passports without this waste of time and all this hassle?” another asked.

The US welcomed the exchange of messages between Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and PM Modi.
The United States Friday hailed India’s acceptance of Pakistani proposal for talks between the foreign ministers on the sidelines of the ongoing annual UN General Assembly session in New York and termed it as a “terrific news”.
“We saw that (reports of meetings between Indian and Pak leaders). I think that’s a terrific news for the Indians and Pakistanis to be able to sit down and have a conversation together,” State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert told reporters at her daily news conference.
On Thursday, spokesperson, Ministry of External Affairs, Raveesh Kumar announced that India has agreed to a meeting between Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj and her Pakistani counterpart Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Pakistan’s request. He, however, made it clear that it was not the resumption of the Indo-Pak dialogue.
Ms Nauert also welcomed the exchange of messages between Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“We saw the reports about the positive messages being exchanged between Prime Minister Khan and also Prime Minister Modi. And we hope that the conditions will be set for a good strong relationship, a good strong bilateral relationship in the future,” she said
The United States has traditionally welcomed any talks between India and Pakistan, the pace of which, it has noted, depends on the leadership of the two countries.
“In general, the United States supports dialogue between India and Pakistan that can reduce tensions, and we understand and had frequent conversations with the Indian partners on the expectations that there would be demonstrable reduction in cross-border terrorism or infiltration that will help create the confidence for dialogue to take place,” Alice Wells, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs, had told reporters during a conference call last week.
A passenger on the train took a video of Anthony Torres shaving and posted it to social media.
Anthony Torres, the man who was mocked across the Internet for lathering up and shaving on a New Jersey train, says he has gotten several offers for job interviews – including, perhaps fittingly, from New Jersey Transit.
Torres told The Washington Post that he is not able to work because of medical conditions, including pneumonia and a work-related injury from several years ago. But he has been touched by the invitations.
“I fee so happy, I feel like a new man,” said Torres, 56.
His turn of fortune has been swift and decisive, as he went from being a homeless man who was a laughingstock last week to today having more than $38,000 in donations from GoFundMe – and the roaring support of the Internet, which felt a collective shame for briefly kicking a man when he was down.
“Before, I was scared to show my face,” he said.
New Jersey Transit declined to confirm the offer to interview Torres for a job, saying, “We don’t comment on prospective employees.”
In the weeks before that train ride, Torres said, he slept in homeless shelters and beneath bridges. He was mugged and scared. He phoned one of his brothers for help, and the brother sent Torres money for a train ticket to visit another brother.
On the New Jersey Transit train out of Penn Station, Torres said, he felt hungry, dirty and downtrodden. He wanted to clean up to look presentable for his brother’s family. So he pulled out his razor on the train.
Another passenger on the train took a video of Torres shaving and posted it to social media, where it was viewed more than three million times in the first few days. The reaction was quick, with tens of thousands of negative comments, many of them unsparing. People called him gross, an animal and worse.
When a niece showed Torres the video, he was embarrassed. He told his family he’d never ride a train again.
But then the tide started to turn. People started defending him and telling the haters to back away. Soon, there were more people sticking up for him than shaming him. Jordan Uhl of Washington, District of Columbia, started the GoFundMe page that raised more than $38,000 for Torres in two days.
Torres welcomes the help and says he’s glad he’s no longer being publicly ridiculed.
“Now people know the real story,” he said.

Bergen County Sheriff Michael Saudino was reportedly taped making unsavory remarks.
New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy on Thursday denounced an audio recording in which the sheriff of the state’s most populous county reportedly made racist remarks about blacks as well as the state’s Sikh attorney general, calling the remarks appalling.
NPR affiliate WNYC published comments from a secret taping it said it had obtained of Bergen County Sheriff Michael Saudino, who is white, making unsavory remarks after the January inauguration of Murphy, a Democrat who succeeded Republican Chris Christie.
The station said that Saudino is heard talking to colleagues about Murphy’s speech.
“He talked about the whole thing, the marijuana, sanctuary state … better criminal justice reform,” he says of the governor. “Christ almighty, in other words let the blacks come in, do whatever … they want, smoke their marijuana, do this, do that, and don’t worry about it. You know, we’ll tie the hands of cops.”
Later Saudino says that Gurbir Grewal, the first Sikh attorney general in the country, was appointed by Murphy solely because of his religion.
“He didn’t do that to help Bergen County, he did that because of the Turban,” he says.
The Washington Post was not able to independently verify that Saudino was the one speaking on the audio files that WNYC published. His office did not respond to a request for comment.
Murphy said in a statement that “anyone using racist, homophobic, and hateful language is unfit for public office.”
“If indeed that is Sheriff Saudino’s voice on the recording, he must resign,” he said.
Saudino, who switched parties to become a Democrat in 2016 after running as a Republican previously, will be up for reelection next year, WNYC reported.
Grewal told WNYC that he has worked with Saudino for two years and that he was surprised by the remarks.
“If that’s in fact Sheriff Saudino’s voice, then he should resign immediately,” he wrote on Twitter. “I’ve got thick skin and I’ve been called far worse. But the comments about the African-American community are wrong, racist, and hurtful. The comments about our Lieutenant Governor are inappropriate and homophobic. New Jersey and Bergen County deserve better.”
Earlier this year, two hosts of a conservative-leaning radio show in New Jersey were suspended after making fun of Grewal’s turban, saying that they didn’t remember his name and preferred to call him, “Turban man.”
In the recording, Saudino also wonders about the sexuality of the state’s lieutenant governor, Sheila Oliver, who is unmarried.
“Is she gay?” he asks, according to WNYC. “Because she’s never been married.”
“Obviously the sheriff is a relic of an era gone by,” Oliver said, according to WNYC. “Diversity and inclusion should be top priorities for him as a law enforcement official in a county such as Bergen – how ignorant.”
There are nearly 1 million residents in Bergen County, about 20 percent of whom are Latino, 17 percent Asian and 7 percent black, according to Census figures cited by WNYC.
Before he was Sheriff of the county, Saudino was the police chief of Emerson, a predominantly white borough in the state, WNYC reported.

The WWE 2K19 release date is October 5 for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One and in the run up to this, Gadgets 360 had a chance to check out a close to final build of the game on a PS4 Pro at a preview event in Mumbai earlier this week. And while publisher 2K Games loves to talk up what’s new and different with each WWE 2K entry — such as WWE 2K19’s Towers mode that borrows from Mortal Kombat’s Challenge Towers and an enhanced creator suite — the biggest changes also happen to be the most obvious: visuals and gameplay.
First up, the menus in WWE 2K19 have got a complete overhaul. They sport a simple grey and white theme with splashes of colour when you’re selecting your choice of wrestler. It’s a welcome change from the usual garish palette of past games and leaves no room for confusion with respect to which mode, wrestler, or stadium you’ve selected which could happen in past games.
As for matches themselves, there’s a remarkable improvement in WWE 2K19’s presentation. For example, the crowd in the arena features more unique faces as compared to last year’s game. It’s a neat touch compared to the cookie cutter audiences we’ve seen previously.
This extends to all the wrestlers too. In WWE 2K18 we noted that not all wrestler models had the same level of visual consistency. Some, like The Undertaker and Ultimate Warrior had weird hair animations and looked like rough approximations instead of accurate representations. However in WWE 2K19, every wrestler looks highly detailed and animates accurately as well. From The Undertaker’s ghostly appearance to The Rock’s taunts in the squared circle, WWE 2K19’s presentation is a dramatic step up.
For most part, WWE 2K19’s frame rate seemed to be pretty smooth and it has a rather obvious impact on gameplay. Whether you’re slipping into the ring, taking a chair to an opponent’s head or simply beating them into a pulp, every action just feels more immediate and impactful as compared to prior games. Couple this with camera angles that zoom in during high octane moments — like Stone Cold pulling off his signature stunner — and you have encounters that feel more dramatic than before, in-line with their TV counterparts.
Although the controls of WWE 2K19 will be familiar to anyone who has played the older titles, there’s an added element to the proceedings called Payback. Before a match begins, you can select two Payback moves out of eight. These include automatically recovering from fatal attacks, punching a foe with brass knuckles, calling in another wrestler to interfere, or spitting at an opponent, among others.
In a match, if you take enough damage, you’ll be able to use one of these two moves that could bring you back into the game. These Payback options turned the tide in two of our encounters, allowing us to come back from surefire losses and turning them into unlikely victories with timely interference from other wrestlers.
Furthermore, there are modifiers to keep each fight interesting. These include big-head mode, which, as the term suggests, gives every wrestler in a match a supersized crown and filters that give the game a cel-shaded look.
As it stands, WWE 2K19 seems to make giant strides over its predecessors in crucial areas that players care about. With a wealth of gameplay options and the Payback mechanic it will be interesting to see how all of it comes together when the full game is finally out. It could very well be the best entry in the franchise in a long time.
WWE 2K19 is priced at Rs. 2,999 for the PC, Rs. 3,499 for the PS4 and Xbox One ($60 in the US) and the release date is October 5. Stay tuned to Gadgets 360 for the full review soon.

नई दिल्ली: दिल्ली महिला आयोग की अध्यक्ष स्वाति मालीवाल ने अपने पति नवीन जयहिंद को गुस्से पर काबू करने और बोलते समय सावधानी बरतने की नसीहत दी है. हरियाणा में आम आदमी पार्टी के संयोजक नवीन जयहिंद ने रेप की घटनाओं पर बीजेपी नेताओं को लेकर विवादित बयान दिया था. कहा था कि अगर बीजेपी नेता….तो वह 20 लाख देंगे. दरअसल हरियाणा सरकार ने गैंगरेप की शिकार लड़की को महज दो लाख रुपये की आर्थिक सहायता दी थी, जिसके बाद नवीन जयहिंद भड़क उठे थे और उन्होंने विवादित बयान दिया था. स्वाति मालीवाल ने कहा- मुझे उनके गुस्से और दर्द से सहानुभूति है, मगर जो उन्होंने बोला, उससे जरा भी नहीं. मैं उनके बयान से सहमत नहीं हूं, इसकी निंदा करती हूं. मैं नवीन जयहिंद को सुझाव देती हूं कि सार्वजनिक रूप से इस तरह गुस्से का इजहार उचित नहीं है. आपको बोलते समय सावधानी बरतनी चाहिए.
आम आदमी पार्टी ने मंगलवार को कहा कि उसकी हरियाणा इकाई के प्रमुख नवीन जयहिंद हरियाणा में सामूहिक दुष्कर्म मामले को लेकर भाजपा सरकार की निंदा करते समय अपने विचारों को सही ढंग से व्यक्त नहीं कर पाए. दिल्ली महिला आयोग की अध्यक्ष स्वाति मालीवाल के पति जयहिंद ने राज्य में 19 साल की एक लड़की से कथित सामूहिक दुष्कर्म को लेकर एक नया विवाद खड़ा करते हुए कहा, ‘‘अगर कोई भाजपा नेता दस लोगों से …. तो वह उसे 20 लाख रुपये देंगे.’’ उन्होंने सामूहिक दुष्कर्म पीड़िता को मुआवजे के तौर पर केवल दो लाख रुपये दिए जाने पर हरियाणा की भाजपा सरकार की निंदा करते हुए यह टिप्पणी की. आम आदमी पार्टी की वरिष्ठ नेता आतिशी मर्लिना ने पत्रकारों से कहा, ‘‘सरकार सोचती है कि वह पीड़िता को दो लाख रुपये का मुआवजा देकर मामले को दफना सकती है लेकिन ऐसा नहीं होगा. जयहिंद केवल इस मुद्दे को उठाने की कोशिश कर रहे थे. शायद जिस ढंग से उन्होंने व्यक्त किया, वह सही नहीं था.’’ जब जयहिंद से संपर्क किया गया तो उन्होंने कहा कि वह अपने बयान पर कायम हैं. उन्होंने फोन पर कहा, ‘‘मैंने जो कहा मैं उस पर कायम हूं. आप समाज में किसी भी महिला का अपमान नहीं कर सकते. पीड़िता या उसका परिवार पैसे नहीं मांग रहा, उन्हें न्याय चाहिए.
