Top-order batsman James Vince has been added to the England squad for the fourth Test versus India, starting from August 30 at The Rose Bowl in Southampton.Vince, who failed to make the squad for any of the first three Tests, is likely to provide cover for Jonny Bairstow, who fractured his right middle finger during the third Test at Trent Bridge.”England National Cricket Selectors have named a 14-man squad for the fourth Specsavers Test match against India at Ageas Bowl starting on Thursday August 30.”Hampshire batsman James Vince has been added to the squad. The 27-year-old right-hander last played for England in Christchurch in April against New Zealand, has been in excellent form in the Specsavers County Championship. The Hampshire captain averages 56 in Division One this summer and made scores of 74 and 147 for his county in their win against Nottinghamshire at the Ageas Bowl this week,” said a statement from the England and Wales Cricket Board.Vince, who is likely to play the fourth Test if Bairstow fails to recover in time, replaced Jamie Porter in the 14-man squad for the home side.Also read – Big blow for England, Jonny Bairstow suffers minor finger fracture”The selection panel felt this was the right time to reintroduce James Vince to the Test squad. James will provide cover in case Jonny Bairstow’s fractured finger prevents him playing in the fourth Test match.”James returns to the England set-up in confident form and scoring runs. He has been in excellent form for Hampshire in the Specsavers County Championship, with 847 runs at 56.46, including 74 and 147 this week – runs that shaped Hampshire’s win against Nottinghamshire. James’ match-winning runs also helped Hampshire to win the Royal London Cup earlier this summer.advertisement”Jamie Porter has been part of the last three Test squads. But the selection panel did not want him to miss the opportunity of playing for Essex in the next round of championship matches. He will return to the squad in the event of an injury to a seam bowler,” said national selector Ed Smith.Bairstow sustained a minor fracture to his left middle finger during India’s second innings of the third Test at Trent Bridge on Monday.Bairsotw failed to collect a James Anderson delivery in the 44th over and walked out in pain.Jos Buttler took over wicketkeeping duties for England but it was not yet clear whether Bairstow would bat in England’s second innings.However, Bairstow did come out to bat in the second innings as England looked to save the Test match but was bowled first ball by Jasprit Bumrah on day four of the Test match.Buttler is likely to continue with the wicket-keeping duties if Bairstow fails to recover in time for the penultimate Test.England squad: Joe Root (C), Moeen Ali, James Anderson, Jonny Bairstow, Stuart Broad, Jos Buttler (WK), Alastair Cook, Sam Curran, Keaton Jennings, Ollie Pope, Adil Rashid, Ben Stokes, James Vince, Chris Woakes
New York: Singer Adele, who confirmed her split from husband Simon Konecki over the weekend, will channel her break-up sorrow into her new album, which is expected to be out later this year. “Adele has been writing and working on new material for a while,” a source said, reports mirror.co.uk. “She has already had meetings with her record label, Sony, in London about her progress. Producers have been approached about working with her. They are hoping the album will be released by this Christmas.” Also Read – I have personal ambitions now: PriyankaBack in 2011, the superstar said of her creative process: “When I’m happy, I ain’t writing songs – I’m out having a laugh.

It’s been three years – I’ve got a record to write’.” The London-born star married Konecki three years ago, after being together for five years. They have a seven-year-old son Angelo. Their split is said to be due to them moving in “different directions and to different continents”, with Adele preferring the US, while Konecki likes living in the UK.

CALGARY — Analysts say Canadian oilfield services companies with operations in the U.S. are now earning more of their revenue south of the border than they have for at least six years.In a report, AltaCorp Capital says that trend is expected to continue as ongoing oil and gas spending weakness in Canada is balanced against steady activity in the United States.The analysts say that 12 of the largest Canadian energy services companies with U.S. operations earned 54 per cent of their revenue in the U.S. in 2018, the first time the percentage climbed above half since at least 2013, when it was just over 40 per cent.

by News Staff Posted Jun 25, 2012 6:13 pm MDT Facebook names 1st woman, chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg, to its board AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – Facebook’s No. 2 executive, Sheryl Sandberg, has become the first woman on the social-networking company’s board of directors.Sandberg was lured from Google in 2008 to become Facebook’s chief operating officer. Besides being the first woman, she is the first executive other than founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg on the board.People had called for the company to add women to its board ahead of its initial public offering of stock in mid-May.In announcing the move Monday, Facebook Inc. didn’t say whether that came in response to calls to add women. But as the No. 2 to Zuckerberg, she was a logical choice.“Sheryl has been my partner in running Facebook and has been central to our growth and success over the years,” Zuckerberg said in a statement. “Her understanding of our mission and long-term opportunity, and her experience both at Facebook and on public company boards makes her a natural fit for our board.”Sandberg has been largely responsible for building Facebook’s advertising business. She’s also often serves as Facebook’s public face, appearing at conferences and important meetings, while Zuckerberg often prefers to stay in the background and focus on Facebook’s products.Sandberg’s appointment is somewhat symbolic. She is already a highly influential executive at Facebook that’s unlikely to change with her board appointment. That said, Zuckerberg still controls Facebook and its board through more than half of its voting stock, which also won’t change with Sandberg’s appointment.Sandberg, 42, joins Zuckerberg, Netflix chief Reed Hastings and entrepreneurs Marc Andreessen, James Breyer and Peter Thiel. Also on the board are Donald Graham, CEO of The Washington Post Co., and Erskine Bowles, president emeritus of the University of North Carolina system.Sandberg also serves on the boards of The Walt Disney Co. and of groups such as Women for Women International.Ultraviolet, a group that has been asking Facebook to add women to its board, said its campaign “should have never been necessary.”“We hope this is a first step for Facebook and in the coming months more women will be added to their board,” co-founder Nita Chaudhary said in a statement. “In addition, we hope that other companies with all-male boards, particularly those in the tech sector, will follow Facebook’s lead.”Most large corporations have at least one female board member, but that’s where it ends for many of them. According to a report on corporate board gender diversity from corporate advisory firm Glass Lewis, 91 per cent of companies in the S&P 500 had at least one female board member in 2011.That said, only women held only 16.1 per cent of board seats at Fortune 500 companies last year, according to a report from Catalyst, a non-profit group that advocates for women in business.Companies in the energy and technology sectors had the lowest levels of female board representation, the Glass Lewis report found.
Click to enlargeThrough the first six months of 2014, the Ohio State football program self-reported six NCAA or Big Ten rules violations. In the following two months and 20 days, it reported none.In fact — through at least Sept. 20 — the football team hasn’t had a self-reported violation since April 22, or a span of nearly five months.Within that time span, junior defensive lineman Noah Spence reportedly failed a drug test — resulting in a violation of OSU and Big Ten rules — and was declared ineligible by the university for the Buckeyes’ Sept. 13 game against Kent State. Spence — who had not played this season because of a three-game suspension after a separate failed drug test — practiced once after the Kent State game, coach Urban Meyer said, but no further update on his status has been released.Since the most recent football violation, all of OSU athletics has self-reported 18 different violations, just one of which involved the men’s basketball program. In total, OSU has self-reported 30 NCAA or Big Ten rules violations this year up until Sept. 20.This information is the result of two separate public records requests submitted by The Lantern. The first was submitted July 8 and filled Aug. 11, while the second was requested Sept. 23 and filled Tuesday evening. The requests span the dates of Jan. 1 through Sept. 20.Despite lower numbers in recent months, the football program still has the most self-reported rules violations so far in 2014 with six. In total, 18 different athletic programs at OSU had self-reported violations listed among the records, with the institution being listed on a pair of violations.Seven of the teams had multiple violations listed, but only football and women’s rowing had more than two. The rowing team was named on four of the violations, two of which came on the more recent records request that spanned from July 1 through Sept. 20.Women’s rowing is the only OSU program to have self-reported multiple violations since July.Responses to the violations from OSU included issuing letters of education to the coaching staff for teams involved with the incidents, a restriction to one program’s financial aid capacity for the 2014-15 academic year and the repayment of $28 worth of “impermissible per diem” for multiple student-athletes.Regardless of punishment, the 30 violations all count as minor NCAA or Big Ten violations. But those 30 infractions still put OSU on track to hit about 40 for the year.OSU athletic director Gene Smith — who is know also the school’s vice president — said the athletics department usually has about 40 self-reported rules violations every year during an interview with The Lantern on May 15, 2012.“On an annual basis, we have about 40,” Smith said in the interview. “It ranges in that area we’re sitting at. In that 40 range is where we always hang.”Smith added that a lower number wouldn’t necessarily be a good thing for OSU.“Our whole thing is if we have 10 (violations), I’d have a problem,” he said. “I mean, I really would because people are going to make mistakes. And that means if I only have 10 out of 350 employees, 1,000 athletes — something’s not right.”While OSU does have one of the largest athletic departments in the nation, its number of violations comes in higher than some other programs. In the second half of 2013, the school self-reported around double the number of NCAA or Big Ten violations than five other schools in the conference.OSU has already self-reported more than double the violations that at least one other school with a major college football program reported during the 2013-14 year. According an Aug. 5 The Oregonian article, University of Oregon athletics self-reported just 14 violations in that academic year.
Mountain rescuers refused to pick up a Ben Nevis climber who complained he was too wet to continue. The man reached the 4411ft summit of the UK’s highest mountain on Wednesday but got hit by a downpour – having climbed without waterproofs. He then called police for help saying he was “soaked.”Officers in turn contacted Lochaber Mountain Rescue.”Anybody who goes up Ben Nevis without any type of cover is asking for trouble,” said team leader John Stevenson. “This chap appears not to have had adequate waterproofs, if any.”It can rain and even snow on the Ben at any time of year – it is Scotland after all! In fact it was snowing on the mountain last night. Only one in ten days do not have cloud on the Ben. “There wasn’t anything wrong with him – he wasn’t injured. He was just wet. We can’t attend incidents like this – or people running out of batteries for their torches, which we have also had calls about before.”A spokesman for Police Scotland confirmed that they had received a call from a solo walker at 9.33pm on Wednesday.”He said he was soaked through and was at the summit. The mountain rescue team were informed but did not attend. He spent the night in the summit shelter and walked himself off the following morning.” “The police called us for advice about the guy saying he was wet and at the top. We are not here to go up and walk down somebody who is OK but just wet.”I said ‘if he’s wet, he’s wet.’ He can come off himself. We are all volunteers not full-time professionals.”The weather on the Ben is cold – it can be freezing any time of the year. You have to have proper gear. The weather on the Ben can change very quickly – you have to be prepared and this chap wasn’t. I said ‘if he’s wet, he’s wet.’ He can come off himselfMountain rescuer John Stevenson Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

According to a new report by New World Wealth, Australia is the ninth wealthiest country in the world.Topping the list was the United States with a total calculated individual wealth of $48,900 billion, followed by China with $17,400 billion.To draw its conclusions, the report took into consideration the net individual wealth of an individual, inclusive of all their assets including cash, property, equities and investments. However government funds were excluded, reports SBS.Australia’s net individual wealth was calculated to be $4,500 billion, and has been regarded an “impressive” feat considering its small population.“Australia’s ranking is impressive, considering it only has 22 million people living there,” said the report. Meanwhile Japan was ranked 3rd with $15,100, the UK followed in 4th place with a total of $9,200 billion, and Germany was a close 5th with $9,100 billion. Also making an appearance in the top ten were France with $6,600 billion (6th), India with $5,600 billion (7th), Canada with $4,700 billion was ranked eighth, and Italy emerged just below Australia with $4,400 billion (10th).The report highlighted that both Australia and India had grown strongly, and that “Australia and Canada have just overtaken Italy over the past 12 months.”Amongst the nation’s listed, China was noted to be the fastest growing country in terms of individual wealth in the past five years.

Une réanimation cardio-pulmonaire prolongée n’augmente pas les chances de survieSelon une étude parue hier, prolonger la réanimation cardio-pulmonaire par les personnels de secours pour les victimes d’une crise cardiaque ne fait aucune différence pour la survie d’un patient.C’est une importante étude menée sur la réanimation cardio-pulmonaire qui est parue mercredi dans le New England Journal of Medicine. En effet, celle-ci indique que prolonger une séance de réanimation sur une personne victime d’une attaque cardiaque n’augmente en aucun cas ses chances de survie. Plus précisément, les recherches “montrent sans l’ombre d’un doute qu’il n’y a aucun gain à procéder à une réanimation cardio-pulmonaire plus longue”, à savoir trois minutes au lieu de 30 à 60 secondes traditionnellement, explique le Dr Ian Stiell de l’Institut de recherche hospitalière d’Ottawa, au Canada, et principal auteur de cette étude.À lire aussiInfarctus : définition, signes et symptômes, causes, comment réagir face à un infarctus ?Cet essai clinique, le plus étendu jamais mené sur ce sujet, permet de mettre un point final aux divergences de points de vue et aux désaccords mondiaux sur le meilleur traitement d’un arrêt cardiaque soudain. Un incident qui frappe plus de 350.000 personnes par an aux Etats-Unis et au Canada et dont moins de 10 % survivent. Habituellement, les pompiers et autres personnels d’urgence faisaient en sorte d’analyser le rythme cardiaque de la victime dès que possible et débutaient une brève réanimation cardio-pulmonaire le temps de préparer un défibrillateur. Pourtant, plusieurs études menées récemment ont suggéré que prolonger la réanimation cardio-pulmonaire jusqu’à trois minutes avant d’analyser le rythme cardiaque serait peut-être préférable.Le même pourcentage de survieCette dernière expérimentation a été menée en partenariat avec des pompiers et d’autres personnels d’urgence médicale sur l’ensemble du Canada et des Etats-Unis. Certains ont pratiqué la réanimation cardio-pulmonaire pendant 30 à 60 secondes et d’autres durant trois minutes. La première analyse des résultats qui portent sur 9.933 patients au total est sans appel : il n’y a aucune différence entre l’une ou l’autre méthode puisque 5,9 % des victimes ont survécu dans les deux groupes.Le 2 septembre 2011 à 09:33 • Maxime Lambert
L’Afrique du Sud et l’Australie se partageront le télescope géant SKASKA (Square Kilometer Array), le radiotélescope le plus puissant du monde, sera fabriqué en Afrique du Sud et en Australie. Initialement en compétition, les deux pays seront associés.Le SKA (Square Kilometer Array car la surface totale de tous les récepteurs combinés de ce super-radiotélescope sera approximativement d’un kilomètre carré) sera le radiotélescope le plus puissant du monde. Grâce à lui, percer les secrets de l’Univers et de sa création pourrait être plus que jamais à la portée de l’Homme. Un projet mené de front par deux pays. En effet, bien qu’initialement en compétition, l’Afrique du Sud et l’Australie ont finalement décidé de se partager la fabrication de ce géant de technologie.”Nous avons décidé d’une approche sur un site double”, a déclaré John Womersley, président du conseil fondateur de SKA, après une réunion à Amsterdam. “Nous installerons du matériel en Afrique du Sud ainsi qu’en Australie et ensemble, ils formeront l’observatoire”, a-t-il expliqué. Cité par l’AFP, M. Womersley explique le choix de son organisation qui “a pris en compte les investissements importants” que les deux pays ont effectué dans le domaine de l’astronomie, (projet MeerKAT pour l’Afrique du Sud et Askap pour l’Australie).Selon le projet dévoilé, le radiotélescope géant, reliera des milliers d’antennes avec un budget prévu de 2 milliards de dollars (1,5 milliard d’euros) et sera ainsi 50 fois plus sensible que les radiotélescopes les plus puissants qui existent aujourd’hui. A lui seul, il regroupe trois concepts d’antennes différents permettant de détecter trois domaines de fréquences distinctes et répondant à des champs d’observation spécifiques.Une construction qui débutera en 2016 À lire aussiSpaceX : un satellite d’Elon Musk manque d’entrer en collision avec un satellite de l’ESALa plupart des antennes paraboliques seront installées en Afrique du Sud. Dans un second temps, l’Australie accueillera les antennes basses fréquences “deux composants-clefs du télescope destinés à collecter des ondes radio de basses fréquences du ciel entier. Cette partie du SKA sera optimisée pour surveiller rapidement de grandes portions du ciel, un point fort des astronomes australiens”, a indiqué Peter Quinn, directeur de l’International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR), basé en Australie. Enfin, les antennes de moyennes fréquences dites “réseaux denses” seront-elles aussi installées en Afrique du Sud. “L’Afrique du Sud accueillera un autre groupe d’antennes destinées à observer des sections plus étroites du ciel mais de manière plus détaillée, se concentrant sur les régions intéressantes qui auront été identifiées” par la partie australienne du SKA, a ajouté M. Quinn.Grâce à ce bijou de technologie, les scientifiques espèrent apporter des réponses à des questions fondamentales sur l’Univers, par exemple comment il s’est créé et pourquoi il est en expansion. Il faudra toutefois patienter encore un peu car la construction ne commencera qu’en 2016 pour que le SKA soit entièrement opérationnel d’ici 2024. Le 28 mai 2012 à 15:06 • Maxime Lambert
A lot of you folks come here to Geek.com to learn how to summon demons. Don’t lie; we can see the numbers and search terms. “Can I really summon Lucifer?” “How to summon a demon on someone else.” “How to make deals with demons.” “Sad Satan.” There’s no shame in this. We’re grateful y’all are so interested in figuring out how to bring Buné the Three-Headed or Forneus the Demon of Language to this mortal plane. You’re even emailing editors for more insight. Knock yourselves out!However, as ethical journalists, it is also our responsibility to present both sides of the demon summoning dilemma. If I may paraphrase the author of the original story, Aubrey Sitterson, if you’re asking others for help on how to summon a demon, you’re not yet strong enough to summon a demon. But instead of scolding you I figured I’d share my own cautionary tale of online dark power-seeking gone wrong.It was the early 2000s. I was a smart child but still a child, so I was pretty naive about some things. I was also a big fan of the X-Men movies and the idea of gaining superpowers through mutation. The fact that you could change a flower’s color by letting it soak up food dye in water blew my mind. I had a whole scheme for planting watermelon seeds in Italian ice to grow fields of mutant natural slush fruits for convenience stores, like Tomacco from The Simpsons. But while I was totally cool experimenting on helpless plants under a microscope, mutating myself seemed like a non-option, and whatever natural powers I may have had weren’t developing fast enough.So I made the innocent, hilarious mistake of turning to the internet to learn how to move things with my mind, the same internet I would soon later fill with lies of my own. And let me tell you, things got really Satanic really quick. None of these telekinesis tips, at least as far as I remember, called for positive enlightening spirituality like meditating or connecting with the rest of the universe.No, instead every weird GeoCities site I went to, with its visitor counter and bad fire GIFs, promised that if I pledged my soul to this or that ghoul, I could totally move a paper clip a few inches with my mind while no one else was looking. Basically be a half-rate Ghost Rider. Another pro tip? Don’t eat cardboard. It messes up your mental mojo. I’m surprised that hasn’t been a plot point on Legion yet.Obviously I didn’t learn how to be a psychic child like the spoon-bending kids from The (soon to be pointlessly rebooted) Matrix. The government would have abducted me by now. But I did learn something else. Internet Devil worshipers are super silly. All these worked-up Christian right-wingers, terrified folks who believe Pokemon evolution is corrupting the youth, having nothing to fear from these passionate dopes. Let them hail Satan in peace. They’re just giving us all a good laugh. Plus, the experience did steer me more toward legitimate spiritual practices like Buddhism, although that also might have been inspired by a Simpsons episode.I hadn’t considered this until now, but my brief brush with online Satanism may have been my first encounter with the amazingly dumb and wonderful subcommunities the internet can create by connecting like-minded loners who probably shouldn’t be connected. It was my first trip into the early Internet Gutter. Trying to teach yourself telekinesis online is stupid, but is it any stupider than believing the Earth is flat or that Soylent is worthwhile?Today’s kids have it way easier. They can learn any skills, no matter how fake, by reading WikiHow or from watching racist YouTubers. They’ll never know what it’s like to truly stumble into a wild and untamed world of dial-up demon summoning. Their loss. In the meantime, all of you, young and old, should keep reading Geek.com for even more Satanic antics. We’ve heard you, and we’re giving you what you want.Hail Buné! ‘Hellboy’ and the History of Heroes From HellGo to Hell With ‘Darksiders’ and These Other Nintendo Switch… Stay on target
Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana is fit and available for selection for the club’s Premier League game against Huddersfield Town on Saturday.The former Southampton midfielder suffered a groin strain at the start of September and has been side-lined since.He was closing in on a return to full fitness before the international break, but failed to play in any of the Reds’ matches.Lallana is now available for selection for the game against the Terriers this weekend.Speaking to Liverpool’s in-house media team, manager Jurgen Klopp confirmed the England international could feature.Report: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…Asked if Lallana was available, the Reds boss said: “Yes, of course.”“Now it’s getting a bit difficult with judging how fit he is really. But training looks tremendous; he obviously enjoys playing football. It’s easy to enjoy watching [him].”“We will see what we do. Nobody, not even he, knows how long he can [play] and stuff like that. We still want to be careful – not too careful but, of course, careful [so] that we reach the point where we don’t have to think about it anymore.”“A few things happened in the past that are already over, that’s good. But we cannot forget it completely or ignore it. But he is 100 per cent back and looks really good in training.”Lallana’s return to fitness could not have come at a better time for Klopp, with injury concerns over James Milner, Sadio Mane and Mo Salah.

Home (RealSimple.com executive editor Laura Schocker and Coastal Living editor Steele Marcoux) “It is clear that we have a greater impact and reach by working as a more unified digital team, especially at a time when so much of our audience now consumes our content in ways that defy brand boundaries,” wrote Murray in the memo. Travel & Luxury (Travel + Leisure digital director Miles Stiverson) It’s the continuation of a movement that’s been taking hold within the company for some time now, aimed at driving efficiency by maintaining separate brand identities — for instance, People, Sports Illustrated, or Entertainment Weekly — but also identifying and cross-promoting content that might be suitable for multiple audiences. In a memo to staff provided to Folio:, chief content officer Alan Murray officially revealed today the formation of ten digital desks based on ten different topical beats. Each desk will be staffed by one of Time Inc.’s editors, who will seek to aggregate and coordinate content across multiple Time Inc. brands. The shift began in July, when Time Inc. consolidated business-side operations, eliminating individual publishers to more easily sell and market across titles, but to this point editorial has largely been left unaffected. “While most routine assignments will continue to be handled within the brands, it will be the role of the desk leaders to ensure that we are collaborating in real time, quickly seizing opportunities to win in social and search and steering our collective resources where we can have the most impact,” added Murray in the memo. “We will track our growth not just across brands but also across the desks.”More on this topic Time Inc.
