Cricket Australia’s Harsh Penalty For Steve Smith, David Warner Was A “Positive Thing”, Says Steve Waugh


Cricket Australia was dealt with a huge blow when Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft were caught in the infamous Cape Town ball-tampering saga. Following the incident, Smith and Warner were handed one-year bans from international and state cricket while Bancroft received a nine-month suspension. A day after an independent review by the Sydney-based Ethics Centre released a 145-page report on the ball-tampering incident, former Australia captain Steve Waugh said that he thought Cricket Australia did a positive thing by handing harsh punishments to the players.

Reiterating his point, Waugh said that they didn’t realise the gravity of what they had done as they had moved away from the reality.

“I don’t think they realised the gravity of what they had done, and I think that showed that they gradually got away from reality and people’s perceptions of what was right and wrong,” Waugh was quoted as saying by cricket.com.au.

“Maybe this is a good time to (hit) the reset button.”

“So I think Cricket Australia did a positive thing – even though it was a harsh penalty, it sent out a strong message,” Waugh further added.

“I know that all kids watching that around Australia, in any sport, would say ‘now I know that if I step out of line there’s going to be a heavy penalty’,” remarked 1999 World Cup winning captain Waugh.

Waugh, who has a record of 41 wins from 57 matches as a Test captain, said that the players might have succumbed to the pressure of winning a match.

“You’re close together, which you’ve got to be on away tours, and you don’t like letting too many outside influences come in because you’ve got to concentrate on what you’re doing,” Waugh said.

“There’s a lot of pressure, and if there’s a negative vibe that starts in the side, or if people start to split up and go different ways then, quite easily, you’ve got an environment which is not cohesive, and one where people are thinking the wrong things,” he added.

“They’re starting to think negatively, and thinking the world’s against them. All of a sudden you get this feeling ‘well, let’s do something about it’, and that’s maybe what happened in South Africa,” Waugh pointed out.

New System Will Help Warn Of Falling Air Quality, Says Harsh Vardhan


New Delhi: 

Environment Minister Harsh Vardhan today said Indian scientists along with their counterparts from the US and Finland have developed a mechanism that will soon be able to forewarn depletion in air quality.

The Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology in Pune, the India Meteorological Department and the meteorology centre in Noida will work together on the air quality issue, Harsh Vardhan said. These three institutions will help to calculate, take measures and give a three-day warning about depleting air quality.

The air quality in Delhi has been deteriorating for the last few days. According to data released by the National Air Quality Index, the AQI was between moderate and poor on Monday with a drop in airspeed.

“We follow a ‘graded response action plan’ under which various steps are taken keeping in mind the degree to which the air quality depletes. There are 40-45 action plans in it,” Harsh Vardhan said.

In past years with the help of the environment ministry, Air Quality index or AQI was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2015. The AQI uses eight to 10 parameters to judge the overall air quality which is then further graded as moderate, poor, good and so on.

“Last year, the government allotted Rs 1,100 crore following depletion in the air quality. Out of this, Rs 500 crore has already been disbursed for the Delhi-Haryana region. PM10 (presence of particles with diameter less than 10 mm) and PM2.5 (presence of particles with diameter less than 2.5 mm) levels have diminished as compared to previous years, and we have also kept a thorough check on stubble-burning,” Harsh Vardhan said.

Vladimir Putin Says Khabib Nurmagomedov Doesn’t Deserve Harsh Punishment


Russian President Vladimir Putin met mixed martial arts champion Khabib Nurmagomedov on Wednesday, saying that he did not deserve harsh punishment for a recent post-fight brawl. The Russian strongman appeared on state television meeting the fighter, who defended his Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight title against Conor McGregor on Saturday, along with his father. Nurmagomedov faces a possible suspension over the post-fight fracas and has not received his prize money, though he will keep his title.

Despite the controversy, he has received a hero’s welcome in Russia and blasted his opponent as a “dimwit”.

Putin gave the fighter a mild lecture over his behaviour, but stressed that any Russian will respond forcefully to an attack from the outside.

“I will ask your dad not to punish you harshly,” the president told the 30-year-old fighter from the mainly Muslim Dagestan region, adding that “you won worthily and convincingly”.

Putin said that like other Russians he had “closely followed” the fight in Las Vegas and “got emotionally involved”.

After the fight, Nurmagomedov jumped over the fence and apparently tried to attack his opponent’s training partner. The crowd was so hostile that the UFC president Dana White did not present the Russian with his belt.

Nurmagomedov expressed no remorse, telling Putin he responded to “disrespect” and “provocations” from his opponent and that he hoped to be vindicated. 

Putin told him that a Russian must restrain himself while at home in his own country, which he called “a big family, but when attacked from the outside, may respond appropriately”.

“In a family anything can happen, (but) we never allow ourselves to go beyond certain limits,” Putin said.

“But if they attack us from the outside, of course, not just you — all of us can jump in such a way, they won’t know what hit them,” said Putin, nevertheless cautioning Nurmagomedov that “it’s better not to take things so far”.

Tino Best Gives Harsh Rebuttal To Harbhajan Singh For Tweet On Windies Team


Tino Best was not too impressed with the Harbhajan’s tweet and hit back at the Indian off-spinner. The West Indian took a pot shot at India’s performance during the Test series in England, where they lost the five-match series 1-4.

Not just the West Indian cricketer, some Indian fans too were left outraged by Harbhajan’s comments.

However, the Windies team did little to prove Harbhajan wrong, putting in a meek performance at Rajkot.

Spinner Kuldeep Yadav starred in India’s biggest-ever Test triumph as they thrashed the Windies by an innings and 272 runs.

The tourists were dismissed for 196 — in their second innings — early in the final session while following on, to trail the two-match series 0-1. They were bowled out for 181 in their first innings in response to India’s 649 for nine declared.

The win at Rajkot helped the world’s top Test side surpass their previous biggest win against Afghanistan by an innings and 262 runs during the minnows’ debut five-day game in June.

The Windies will have a chance to reclaim some of their lost pride when they face India in the second Test at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad, starting October 12.

Impersonators Should Get Harsh Punishment: Patanjali Chief Balkrishna


Acharya Balkrishna is the managing director of the Patanjali Ayurved.

New Delhi: 

A day after the Noida police arrested a man for impersonating the Managing Director of Patanjali Ayurved Limited, Acharya Balkrishna on Facebook, he demanded strict punishment for the accused.

“People like him who indulge in such malicious activities should receive harsh punishment. Even the government should look into the matter so that such incidents don’t take place in the future,” he told the reporters.

Mr Balkrishna also thanked the Noida police for taking prompt action against the accused.

“There have been some impersonators who have been indulging in indecent conversations online with my women followers in an attempt to tarnish his image and that of the company’s,” he added.

Soon after the man was arrested by the Noida police, Patanjali spokesperson SK Tijarawala claimed that a deliberate effort was being made to defame religious leaders, and called for stern action against the accused.

“What has happened is against the culture, religion, and values of Indian society, and an attempt to defame religious leaders by spreading false information about them. Accused in such cases should be given the same punishment as that given to those guilty of rape,” he tweeted in Hindi.
 

Mr Tijarawala had earlier appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to introduce a stern law to protect social media from becoming a weapon of sabotage. Earlier, a morphed image of Yoga Guru Ramdev was posted in a WhatsApp group on International Yoga Day.

China State Media Attacks Donald Trump On Trade In Unusually Harsh Terms

Shanghai: 

Chinese state media on Monday lashed out at U.S. President Donald Trump’s trade policies in an unusually personal attack, even as they sought to reassure investors about the health of China’s economy as growth concerns roiled its financial markets.

China’s strictly controlled news outlets have frequently rebuked the United States and the Trump administration as the trade conflict has escalated, but they have largely refrained from specifically targeting Trump.

The latest criticism from the overseas edition of the ruling Communist Party’s People’s Daily newspaper singled out Trump, saying he was starring in his own “street fighter-style deceitful drama of extortion and intimidation”.

Trump’s desire for others to play along with his drama is “wishful thinking”, a commentary on the paper’s front page said, arguing that the United States had escalated trade friction with China and turned international trade into a “zero-sum game”.

“Governing a country is not like doing business,” the paper said, adding that Trump’s actions imperilled the national credibility of the United States.

The heated dispute between the world’s two biggest economies has roiled financial markets including stocks, currencies and the global trade of commodities from soybeans to coal in recent months.

The United States and China implemented tariffs on $34 billion worth of each other’s goods in July. Washington is expected to soon implement tariffs on an additional $16 billion of Chinese goods, which China has already said it will match immediately.

On Friday, China’s finance ministry unveiled new sets of additional tariffs on 5,207 goods imported from the United States worth $60 billion.

That move was in response to the Trump administration’s proposal of a 25-percent tariff on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports.

Stock market Swings

The paper’s vitriol follows Trump’s comments on Twitter from Saturday in which he boasted that his strategy of placing steep tariffs on Chinese imports was “working far better than anyone ever anticipated”, and that Beijing was now talking to the United States about trade.

Trump cited losses in China’s stock market as he predicted the U.S. market could “go up dramatically” once trade deals were renegotiated.

In Monday morning trade, China’s stocks swung in and out of positive territory and its currency was stable as investors weighed the impact of the latest volley in the Sino-U.S. trade war, and as Beijing made moves to shore up the country’s tumbling yuan currency.

But a flurry of articles in Chinese state media emphasised the resilience of China’s economy and downplayed concerns about the impact of the Sino-U.S. trade war.

“Market participants foresee a relatively stable Chinese currency in the near term, without fear of impacts from the U.S.-China trade dispute. They expect solid economic growth momentum amid policy fine-tuning,” an article in the official English-language China Daily newspaper said, citing Chinese economists.

On Friday, the People’s Bank of China said it would require banks to keep reserves equivalent to 20 percent of their clients’ foreign exchange forwards positions from Monday, in a move to stabilise the yuan.

“Leading China’s economy on a stable and far-reaching path, we have confidence and determination,” another commentary in the main edition of the People’s Daily said.

Trump has threatened tariffs on over $500 billion in Chinese goods, covering virtually all U.S. imports from the Asian giant, demanding that Beijing make fundamental changes to its policies on intellectual property protection, technology transfers and subsidies for high technology industries.

The nationalist Global Times, responding in an editorial late on Sunday to White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow’s remarks that China should not underestimate Trump’s resolve, said China did not fear “sacrificing short-term interests”.

“China has time to fight to the end. Time will prove that the U.S. eventually makes a fool of itself,” the Global Times said.

India Has Taken Several Measures To Protect Tigers Says Environment Minister Harsh Vardhan


International Tiger Day:As per last consensus, India has 70 per cent of the world’s tiger population.

New Delhi: 

India has taken several measures, including bringing out guidelines for tiger safaris, to reduce the pressure of eco-tourism, protect habitats of the big cats and conserve its population, Union Environment Minister Harsh Vardhan said today.

Noting that India is one of the few countries, where tigers have their natural habitat, he said the big cats were part of the country’s heritage and “their protection is our responsibility towards the world and future generations”.

 “#InternationalTigerDay – India has taken several measures to protect tiger habitats & conserve its population like Guidelines for Tiger Safaris to reduce pressures of Ecotourism, SOP to strengthen interstate coordination in bordering tiger reserves. @PMOIndia, @moefcc, @NTCAtiger,” he tweeted on International Tiger Day.

There are an estimated 2,226 tigers in the country and India has 70 per cent of the world’s tiger population, according to the last tiger census.

“#InternationalTigerDay – @NCTAtiger issues advisories to deal with emergent situation of tiger & sympatric species mortality due to electrocution in tiger reserves; strengthen tiger conservation concerns in intl sphere thro’ bilateral consultations. @PMOIndia, @moefcc,” he said on Twitter.

The minister said smart patrolling and notification of five more tiger reserves are some of the other measures undertaken by his government to protect the big cats.

 “”#InternationalTigerDay – Smart patrolling, notification for five more tiger reserves, aerial surveillance, Economic Valuation of Tiger Reserves are part of the measures being undertaken to protect tiger habitats & conserve its population. @PMOIndia, @moefcc, @NTCAtiger,” he tweeted.

Mr Vardhan a few days back had said  the government has set a target of doubling the tiger population in the country.

The preliminary census data of the ongoing tiger census has shown a rise in the population of the big cats in the country, which is a “big thing”, he had said.  In the run-up to International Tiger Day this year, several events had been organised to raise awareness among the younger generation, an official statement had earlier said.

In 2010, at St Petersburg, Russia, the heads of governments of Tiger Range states, which includes India, resolved to strive to double the number of wild tigers (T X 2) across their global range by 2022. They had signed the St.Petersburg Declaration on Tiger Conservation, which also decided to celebrate July 29 as Global Tiger Day.

India has significantly contributed to this target and has resolved to safeguard tiger habitat and source populations to foster viable tiger population during the Global Stock Taking meeting held in 2012 at New Delhi to review progress in terms of the St Petersburg Declaration.

India had launched Project Tiger in 1973 to conserve tigers.

Till now, the coverage of “Project Tiger” has increased from nine reserves to 50 tiger reserves spread across 18 states.
