Onduparaka can only finish as high as 5th. (File Photos)StarTimes Uganda Premier LeagueOnduparaka FC vs Express FCGreen Light Stadium, AruaSaturday, 04-05-2019 @4pmARUA – This has been a disappointing season for Onduparaka.After a stellar 2017/18 season in which they finished 4th, Onduparaka hoped to improve this campaign but have fallen short somehow.With only one game to play, the Arua based cannot finish any better than 5th, the position they sit in before a kick of the ball on Saturday.With a victory against Express putting them on 47 points, they will have also failed to match or better last season’s tally of 48.Not that the situation calls for alarm bells to be sound, no. But who wouldn’t want to witness some sort of improvement? For the Onduparaka faithful, they will have to go back and look at where they fell short and hope their side improves.Against Express, they take on a side that has almost all their focus elsewhere. The Red Eagles are in the semifinals of the Uganda Cup and take on Bright Stars in the second leg earlier next week.Express have a Uganda Cup semifinal second leg next week. (file photo)With a first major trophy since 2012 only two games away, Express can be forgiven for not taking Saturday’s game seriously.“Our focus is on the Cup mainly but due to formalities, we know we have to play Onduparaka, says Express Coach George Ssemwogerere.“We will try to use the Onduparaka game as part of the preparations for the second leg against Bright Stars next week.“We go into Arua eyeing to win so as we boost our confidence before Bright Stars comes to Wankulukuku.Express are expected to make wholesale changes to the team as they hand vital rest to some of their key players who are expected to be the focal point next week. However, they will be without the injured Arthur Kiggundu who suffered a nasty injury in the 1-1 draw with Bright Stars last Sunday.Match FactsThis will be the 6th meeting between the two sides since Onduparaka were promoted to the top tier in 2016.Express has never triumphed over Onduparaka in the first 5 meetings (D2 L3).In the reverse fixture last season, the two sides drew 0-0.When they met in the first game this campaign, Onduparaka defeated Express 2-0 at Wankulukuku.Going into the game, Onduparaka are on a three-match unbeaten run, winning two and drawing one.At home, Onduparaka have lost only one of their last 12 games this season (W6 D5).For Express, they head into the game having lost only once in their last 5 league outings (W3 D1).However, away from home, the Red Eagles have lost all of their last three League games conceding 6 goals whilst scoring only once.Match Officials-Center Referee: Paul Omara–Assistant Referee 1: Dick Okello–Assistant Referee 2: Tonny Agir–Fourth Official: Deogracious Opio–Referee Assessor: David Davis KatabiraOther match-day 30 games–Mbarara City Vs Police – Kakyeka Stadium, Mbarara–KCCA Vs Maroons – Star Times Stadium, Lugogo–Vipers Vs BUL – St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende–Kirinya-Jinja S.S Vs Ndejje University – Mighty Arena, Jinja–Tooro United Vs URA – Kavumba Recreational Stadium–Bright Stars Vs Paidha Black Angels – Champions Stadium, Mwererwe–SC Villa Vs Nyamitybora – Mandela National Stadium, NambooleComments Tags: Express FCFUFA Uganda Cup 2018/19George Ssemwogerereonduparaka fcStarTimes Uganda Premier Leaguetop

He was perfect on eight shots from the field and tied a season high with 18 points. He also grabbed 10 rebounds and twice blocked Ingram near the rim.James was greeted by a mixture of cheers and boos by a crowd that included a conspicuous number of fans wearing Lakers purple and gold. US judge bars Trump’s health insurance rule for immigrants But the boos that rained down on the court when James handled the ball left little doubt that New Orleans fans are convinced that James played a role in Davis’ decision to ask for a trade in late January, only months after Davis fired his previous representation and signed with James’ agent, Rich Paul.James has denied having any influence over Paul’s dealings with Davis, which would represent a violation of the NBA’s tampering rules.The Pelicans had the flexibility to sit a healthy Davis against the Lakers because they were playing for the second time in two nights, were at home and not on national television.“If you’re looking along the lines of having any significance because we’re playing the Lakers that had nothing to do with it,” New Orleans coach Alvin Gentry said before the game. “If we were playing the Baltimore Claws we would sit him out that game too, OK?“It gives us an opportunity to minimize the minutes that he’s going to be playing and as a team we think that’s best for our franchise right now.”ADVERTISEMENT The Lakers aggressively tried to acquire Davis before the Feb. 7 trade deadline. New Orleans, however, was uninterested in dealing Davis before this offseason, when more teams, including Boston, are expected to be in position to make stronger trade offers.While Davis spent the game on the bench wearing a dark suit, the players in uniform for New Orleans lit up the scoreboard and filled the stat sheet against a Lakers team needing a strong finish to the regular season to make the playoffs.TIP-INSLakers: Committed 23 turnovers, leading to 23 Pelicans points. … Shot 54.3 percent (44 of 81), including 10 of 29 (34.5 percent) from 3-point range. … Kyle Kuzma scored 16 points and JaVale McGee had 10. … Lakers reserves scored 24 points combined.Pelicans: Shot 52.1 percent (50 of 96), including 15 of 40 from 3-point range. ..

TweetPinShare0 Shares MIAMI — The New York Knicks have already surpassed their win total for all of last season, and the latest victory was especially sweet.Carmelo Anthony scored 25 points and the Knicks shot 56 percent to snap a streak of eight consecutive losses to the Miami Heat, beating their rivals 98-90 on Jan. 6.Robin Lopez added a season-high 19 points for the Knicks, who won their third game in a row, and their second on the road in as many nights.The Knicks (18-19) are way ahead of their pace a year ago, when they had the worst record in the Eastern Conference (17-65).“We’re still trying to find our identity,” Anthony said. “These past three games we’ve shown something. And it wasn’t just me.”Coach Derek Fisher liked what he saw. “We were intense, but there was a relaxed look, as if we were in control of what we wanted to do,” Fisher said. “It takes a while to develop that, and it’s hard to keep that.”Playing a team ranked second in the NBA in scoring defense, the Knicks found plenty of open shots — and made them. New York’s shooting percentage was the best by any team this season against the Heat, who came into the game allowing opponents to hit only 43 percent.“They didn’t have an explosive offensive night,” Miami’s Dwyane Wade said. “It was just very efficient.”By contrast, the Heat shot 45 percent and went 2-for-17 from 3-point range. They were in danger of being blanked from beyond the arc for the first time in nearly four years until Chris Bosh hit a 3 with 3:22 left.Bosh scored 28 points for the Southeast Division leaders, who fell to 11-12 against the Eastern Conference. Wade scored 18.Hassan Whiteside, back in the starting lineup after missing one game with a sore right knee, had eight points and eight rebounds but was a minus-18. “My knee was bothering me, but I still went out there and rebounded,” he said.Anthony shot 9 for 12 and was a plus-19. In his first two games against Miami this season, Anthony shot 10 for 29 and totaled 32 points.Derrick Williams led New York’s productive bench with 13 points and eight rebounds in 18 minutes.“When we play the way we should be playing, we can beat any team that’s out there,” Anthony said. “We’re showing these past couple of games. We just have to keep that.”The Heat won their first two games against the Knicks this season by 17 and 19 points, but New York led for the entire second half, and the margin reached 15 points midway through the fourth quarter.“You’ve played a team twice already, the third time they figure it out a little bit,” Wade said.(STEVEN WINE, AP Sports Writer)
Policemen urge people staying in the cordoned house of Jessore city to come out. Photo: Ehsan-ud-DaulaPolice cordoned off a house in Ghop Central Road area of Jessore early Monday suspecting it a militant hideout.ATM Ajmal Huda, officer-in-charge of Kotwali police station, said tipped off that the militants are staying in the house, a team of police cordoned off a house in the area around 2:00am.Once the team of Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) team of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) reached the spot from Dhaka, the anti-terrorism operation will begin, the OC added.House owner Haider Ali, a teacher of Jessore Zila school, said Mashiur Rahman, hailing from Kushtia, also an employee of an herbal company, rented his house.Jessore additional superintendent of police Naimur Rahman told newsmen that as per information received from SWAT, the house has been cordoned off.They (SWAT) suspected that the militants are staying in the house and police are barring people, including journalists, from entering the area, he added.Meanwhile, residents of seven more flats, located inside the boundary of the cordoned house, have been evacuated safely, said the OC, adding that only the family of Khadiza, sister of neo-JMB leader Marjan, remained besieged in the house.
Popular on Variety The new VRV deals come after the shutdown of Warner Bros. Digital Network’s DramaFever and the announcement from Turner and WB that film-aficionado service FilmStruck is ceasing at the end of November.Arlen Marmel, general manager of VRV, said “there’s no top-down mandate” from WarnerMedia to cross-license content but he said more WarnerMedia content will be coming to the $10-per-month VRV bundle in 2019. “WarnerMedia has leaned into VRV,” he said.Last month, AT&T said WarnerMedia in 2019 will launch a broad subscription-streaming entertainment service anchored by HBO pulling in content from other parts of the former Time Warner. As part of launching the plan, AT&T said it would be “consolidating resources from sub-scale D2C [direct-to-consumer] efforts.”“It remains to be seen what that bigger, broader WarnerMedia bundle looks like, but we hope VRV could be part of that,” Marmel said. “If we look at the broader landscape, clearly it’s difficult to operate any business that’s sub-scale. With VRV, we knew that aggregation was critical.”All told, VRV offers some 100,000 episodes in the bundle. With the addition of Boomerang on Nov. 13, the service will include 12 channels, priced at $10 monthly (which if purchased a la carte would cost $50). The lineup includes Otter Media’s Crunchyroll and Rooster Teeth, anime channel HIDIVE, Viacom’s NickSplat, Cartoon Hangover, AMC Networks’ Shudder, Mondo, Geek & Sundry, Nerdist, CuriosityStream, Boomerang, and VRV Select (a channel stocked with content licensed from partners including Syfy, El Rey/Univision, Warner Bros., and MGM).Otter Media isn’t disclosing how many paid VRV subscribers it has signed up. Overall, it has more than 4 million registered users and over 2.5 million monthly active users. (VRV offers a selection of free, ad-supported video in front of the paywall.) On average, premium users stream around 60 minutes per day.“The vast majority of our users do buy the bundle. There’s a lot of power in that,” said Marmel. “We can really reduce the friction to access that content.” AT&T acquired control of Otter Media this summer, buying out Chernin Group’s majority stake in the venture in a deal reportedly valued at $1 billion. Otter Media portfolio includes Crunchyroll, Rooster Teeth, Fullscreen and VRV.The first four episodes of “Final Space” season one will be available exclusively on VRV’s streaming platform starting Wednesday (Nov. 7), with subsequent episodes to be released weekly. TBS has greenlit the show for a second season, which will eventually come to VRV along with any potential future seasons.The show is produced by Conan O’Brien’s Conaco and New Form in association with Turner’s Studio T. “Final Space” was created by and stars Olan Rogers, a filmmaker with nearly 1 million followers on YouTube, with a cast that also includes Fred Armisen, Tom Kenny, David Tennant, Tika Sumpter, Steven Yeun and Coty Galloway. The second season is currently in production and is set to feature O’Brien as a recurring character.“With ‘Final Space,’ we created a show that pairs genuine emotion and real stakes with comedy and premium animation, making it a perfect fit for VRV,” Rogers, also an executive producer of the show, said in a statement. “We hope VRV’s community loves the series and catches up on all the action before season two premieres next year.”Eric Berman, VRV’s head of content partnerships and business development, said the deal for “Final Space” emerged after VRV was talking with TBS about potential co-productions. “They said, ‘Here is something we have the rights to,’” he said.VRV’s programming strategy is focused around four quadrants: anime, like Crunchyroll; nostalgia-driven “kidult” content like NickSplat, “Jabberjaw” and “Freakazoid”; adult animation like “Mike Tyson Mysteries,” “HarmonQuest” (greenlit for a third season at VRV) and “Cyanide and Happiness”; and alternative reality, like Syfy’s space bounty-hunter series “Killjoys.”As with other SVOD services, content comes and goes on VRV. After Sony Pictures Television’s Funimation last month ended its cross-licensing deal with Crunchyroll after two years, VRV also lost access to Funimation channel. “We’re upset to see Funimation go and never want to remove content from our fans, but we’re able to add other content,” Berman said, noting that HIDIVE will bring its full slate of over 500 dubbed, subtitled and uncensored anime to VRV before the end of 2018. AT&T’s WarnerMedia has shut down two niche streaming-video businesses — but it’s apparently still bullish on some narrowly targeted entertainment plays.VRV, the fandom-focused video platform run by the media group’s Otter Media, is boosting its lineup of animated programming from other parts of WarnerMedia.VRV has nabbed exclusive streaming rights to intergalactic comedy “Final Space,” whose freshman season aired earlier this year on TBS. The service also is adding two series from Warner Bros. Animation’s catalog — Adult Swim’s “Mike Tyson Mysteries” and ’70s cult classic “Jabberjaw” — as well as Boomerang, the cartoon subscription VOD service from Turner.“We believe there is a consumer need for aggregation, and working with our sister companies within WarnerMedia allows us to offer even more great content that our fans can watch and experience together,” Tony Goncalves, CEO of Otter Media, said in a statement. Meanwhile, the three seasons of detective/thriller comedy “Mike Tyson Mysteries” and talking-shark show “Jabberjaw” (which originally aired in 1976) will join VRV in 2019. It turns out that the former heavyweight boxer is a huge fan of the latter — and Tyson recorded a promo for VRV in which he sings the “Jabberjaw” theme song.“What we’re trying to accomplish with VRV is to tap things outside the mainstream, the stuff that’s hanging out on the fringe,” said Marmel. The former exec joined Crunchyroll in 2014 as head of marketing and distribution following Chernin Group’s majority investment in it, and he has been general manager of VRV since early 2017.Pictured above: “Final Space” ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Safety of women in the Capital has long been an issue. Keeping that in mind, an FM channel launched a campaign in the city that encourages acceptance and celebration of the girl child. With that theme in mind, Euphoria frontman Palash Sen launched a new song Main Hoon in the city on Thursday. Millennium Post caught up with Sen on the campaign, safety of women in the Capital and more. ‘It is not a sexist problem, it’s a social problem. Women are not just an object,’ he told us. Here are excerpts: Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’What made you direct and sing the song Main Hoon…?A woman according to me is ‘beauty’. Main Hoon.. depicts the strong presence of women around us. We are celebrating women empowerment, so this initiative marks the beginning of a series of initiatives which aim to create a safer society for women in India. All my earlier videos showcase women as protagonists, and even in this song, my mother, sister and my daughter along with some students of Lady Shri Ram College are seen. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixHow do you think this song will help the audience take the initiative for a better society?In the past few weeks things have drastically changed in our society, and it’s about time that as individuals we come together to bring about a change in the general perception of women and girl children. There are various ways to reach out to the mass, and as I am into music, I feel it is the best means to reach the audience, the sweetest medium which will linger in the audience’s mind and heart. What do you think is the scenario of the Capital now in terms of safety of women since your Delhi University days when you were a student?The negative mindset of the society needs to be changed towards the female gender. We are the biggest hypocrites of the society. India is the oldest culture in the world, where on one hand we worship Ma Durga, her power, and on the other hand these gruesome incidents take place. Women are not only emotionally strong, they are physically strong too by carrying a baby for nine months. Earlier, we did not get to see and hear Munni and Sheila or Fevicol, which degrades a woman’s morality. Why do we have to see Bipasha Basu or Sunny Leone every day?…It’s time to put an end to these discriminations, and give them a chance to achieve their full potential.Many will say this is likely to be a publicity stunt, as the gang rape incident has been in the news lately….I simply don’t bother about publicity. I am an orthopaedic Surgeon too, I do music straight from my heart and people love my music. Euphoria is a band with no Bollywood ties. We are blessed to have this amount of fan following. If you are calling this a publicity stunt, I would say it is a positive initiative to nurture the society. I did not take a single penny for this song. Publicity is important, as far as it is a positive one.What is your message to the society?A woman is like the morning sunshine. Look up on her and value her. Look beyond movies which have taken over the idiot box. Learn to respect, to gain respect . Galvanise actions to ensure that every girl child is able to realise her full potential. And for those in the media, make the pen your sword, for a good cause.
‘The tiger skin shone brilliantly in the pre-lunch Jabalpur sun. Of the two men who spread it in front of the chai-shop, Ramchandra Prasad—the older one with a shaved head and gentle, hesitating hands, had a natural poise establishing his higher position in life. That he had come from the United States was evident from his elegant, though creased, Hilfiger jacket and the airline-tag on the Hartmann bag by his side… The gleaming skin on the bench also cast its spell on the chaiwallah, who begged to feel it. He turned down the radio and quickly jumped off his shop on stilts before Ram could say a word. ‘Tiger is truly king of the jungle.’ ‘ Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’ Scent of a Game is set against the backdrop of wildlife conservation and draws together several themes extending from tiger poaching, big game hunting and illegal trade of endangered species.

Kolkata: For the first time in India, Geological Survey of India (GSI) is going to use ultramodern remote sensing technology with the help of sensor developed by NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration), USA called — “Advanced Visible Infra-Red Imaging Spectrometer Next Generation (AVIRIS-NG)” to locate minerals like lead, zinc, copper, platinum, diamond, gold and other associated minerals.”This sensor is an engineering marvel and has been proved effective for mapping surface mineralogy in different parts of the world,” a senior GSI official said. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeRecently, AVIRIS-NG sensor was mounted onboard ISRO aircraft for acquiring the hyperspectral images for fourteen mineralized blocks in different parts of India, namely Jhagadia and Ambaji of Gujarat, Zawar, Udaipur, Pur Banera, Jahazpur and Bhukia in Rajasthan, Hutti-Maski in Karnataka, Wajrakarur in Andhra Pradesh, Sittampundi in Tamil Nadu, KuhiKhobna in Maharashtra, Tundi in Jharkhand and Chattarpur in Madhya Pradesh.A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been recently signed between the GSI and the National Remote Sensing Centre-Indian Space Research Organization (NRSC-ISRO) in Kolkata in presence of Dr Dinesh Gupta, Director General, GSI and Santanu Chowdhury, Director, NRSC. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedThe main objective of the MoU is to utilise these airborne hyperspectral data by the scientists of GSI and ISRO to find surface signatures of mineralization in those 14 promising areas in the next 3 years. As a matter of fact, every mineral shows specific spectral character and hence hyperspectral remote sensing is used to detect minerals based on their spectral characteristics.It may be mentioned that hyperspectral data has immense potential for mineral exploration with regard to mapping of the host rock and surface alterations associated with the mineral forming processes.Hyperspectral remote sensing, also known as imaging spectroscopy, are not only used on earth but also used for mapping minerals on Moon and Mars.
