Siang situation normal, IAF rescues 19 stranded on island

first_imgThe water level of Siang river in Arunachal Pradesh has subsided after a scare triggered by an alert from China to India about the swelling of Tsangpo following heavy rain in Tibet. The water of the river, officials said, has turned very muddy.The Tsangpo – Yarlung Zangbo, as it is known in China – flows into Arunachal Pradesh as the Siang, which meets two other rivers in Assam downstream to become the Brahmaputra.As people along the banks of the Siang heaved a sigh of relief, the Indian Air Force evacuated 19 people stranded on an island in the river at Jampani under Sille-Oyan circle of East Siang district on Friday. The spot is about 27 km from East Siang district headquarters Pasighat.“An Mi17 helicopter from Mohanbarie airport in Assam’s Dibrugarh district carried out six sorties and rescued the 19 people, including six children, in an hour since 4.38 a.m.,” an IAF spokesperson said.Six people were winched up in areas where the helicopter could not land. Those rescued were mostly farmers who ventured out before the water surge for cattle grazing. Local officials said many animals remain stranded on the island. East Siang’s deputy commissioner Tamiyo Tatak had on Thursday night shot off a letter to the IAF’s station commander in Dibrugarh requesting evacuation of an estimated 30 stranded people.“The water volume of the Siang river has come down to the level we normally have during the rainy season. But the water is high on turbidity and there’s been a lot of erosion along the banks,” Mr. Tatak told The Hindu.Monitoring river flowIn Upper Siang district, where the Tsangpo enters India to become the Siang, officials are monitoring the flow of the river. “The water was flowing normally when last observed,” Nijhon Danggen, circle officer of Tuting bordering China, said.The turbidity of Siang is believed to be the outcome of a natural dam formed across the Tsangpo because of landslides caused by major earthquakes in Tibet in 2017. Around that time, the Siang turned turbid near Pasighat. “We have asked the experts to study the water quality,” Mr. Tatak said.last_img read more

first_imgIndian pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar said Ross Taylor’s wicket was the one he cherished the most among the five he took on Saturday. (Day 2 Report | Highlights)”Ross Taylor’s wicket pleased me the most,” Bhuvneshwar said after the end of the day’s play at the Eden Gardens here.The 26-year-old Uttar Pradesh pacer returned figures of 5/33, cleaving through New Zealand’s batting and propelling India to an advantageous position on Day 2 of the second Test. (Bhuvneshwar repays Kohli’s faith with another five-wicket haul)Drafted into the side in place of Umesh Yadav keeping in mind the grass on the Eden pitch, Bhuvneshwar grabbed the opportunity with both hands.Asked whether there was any added pressure on him, he said, “There was no extra pressure on me. I am happy with the way I bowled. The pitch had a lot for the bowlers and I exploited that.”Later at the press conference after the end of the day’s play, Indian wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha lauded Bhuvneshwar’s efforts.”He bowled beautifully. The wicket assisted bowlers and I thought the way he went about his job was exceptional.

Royals Face Mets’ Murphy

first_imgTweetPinShare0 Shares KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Daniel Murphy took a meaty cut, then motioned to the batting practice pitcher to throw one a bit outside.“Please,” the New York Mets bopper added, politely.Murphy promptly lined the next toss into the right-field corner at Kauffman Stadium.That’s how easy he’s making it look in real games, too.So far, Murphy has invited many of baseball’s top aces to his October bash — Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke and Jake Arrieta among them.Now, the Kansas City Royals hope to spoil his playoff party.Murphy has homered in a record six straight postseason games. He’ll take aim at Edinson Volquez and the Royals starting Oct. 27 in the World Series opener.Murphy hit a career-best 14 home runs during the regular season, then launched seven more in the first two rounds against the Dodgers and Cubs. He is one from matching the mark for most homers in a single postseason, shared by Barry Bonds, Carlos Beltran and Nelson Cruz.“Superman? Oh, no, no,” he said before the workout. “Just a second baseman who’s trying to get a good pitch to hit.”To Royals pitching coach Dave Eiland, that’s the crux of Murphy’s sudden power surge.“He’s getting a lot of good pitches to hit, and he isn’t missing them,” Eiland said. “He’s right on them.”Eiland has noticed something else. “He looks very comfortable in the batter’s box — and I’ll leave it at that,” Eiland said.Hmmm. Told about Eiland’s comment, Royals pitcher Kris Medlen chuckled.“Nobody’s going to hit anybody,” Medlen said. “But there are ways to get guys out. Coming in, going out, mixing it up.”Medlen noted that last week against the Cubs, Murphy golfed a pitched that was barely a foot off the ground for a home run. It was the second-lowest pitch hit for a homer in the majors this year.“He’s hitting everything,” Medlen said.Murphy won the MVP award in the NL Championship Series for sweeping Chicago, going 9-for-17. Overall, he’s 16-for-38 (.421) in his first postseason, driving in 11 runs and scoring 11 in nine games.Along with his home runs, he’s doubled twice, walked once and struck out six times.Regarded a good contact hitter throughout his career, Murphy made some mechanical adjustments at the plate this year designed to get more power.“Get your foot down in time and use your legs,” he summed up.The results this month, though, have exceeded anything than anyone could have imagined.After hitting 62 home runs in 3,354 career at-bats, he’s connected seven times in 38 at-bats in becoming New York’s newest “Mr. October.”Asked to describe Murphy right now, Medlen simply said: “Hitter-ish.”Murphy faced several of the Kansas City pitchers when they were in the National League, including Medlen, Volquez and Johnny Cueto. But he has never homered off any of the pitchers currently on the Royals’ staff.Plus, Kauffman Stadium plays fairly big. It was tied for 25th among the 30 big league parks for home runs, STATS said.“He’s hitting a lot of home runs this postseason, which is a great accomplishment. We’re not trying to give up homers,” Royals closer Wade Davis said.Murphy, a free agent-to-be, says he isn’t spending much time thinking about being in a special zone. Besides, others are only too glad to talk about what he’s doing.“It’s the hot streak,” teammate David Wright said. “I’m not sure it’s a hot streak.”Whatever, the Royals already have thought through how to stop Murphy.“We talked about in our advance meeting today how he stands on top of the plate, like Barry Bonds did,” manager Ned Yost said.(BEN WALKER, AP Baseball Writer)last_img read more

There were too many gentlemen in my team Ganguly

first_imgManchester: Former skipper Sourav Ganguly has revealed that there were “too many gentlemen” in the team when he captained India and joked that’s why his side struggled with mental battles against tough opponents such as Australia. Speaking during the rain interruption in India’s World Cup semifinal clash against New Zealand at the Old Trafford, Ganguly said: “It was very hard with that team, because we had too many gentlemen. If you ask Rahul Dravid to do that, he’ll come back and say ‘No no no that’s not the right way to play.’ Also Read – Dhoni, Paes spotted playing football together “You ask V.V.S. Laxman to do that, he’ll say ‘I’m concentrating on my batting.’ And if you tell Sachin to do it, he will stand at mid-on and tell the mid-wicket fielder to sledge Steve Waugh, and himself not do it,” Ganguly revealed with Laxman laughing alongside him. The 47-year-old, speaking on Star Sports’ Cricket Live Show, further said that only off-spinner Harbhajan Singh was the one who followed his instructions. “There were a lot of issues in that team. The only ones holding the Indian flag were Harbhajan Singh and Sourav Ganguly. Sardarji did everything I told him to do,” he said. Ganguly was the captain of the Indian team from 2000 to 2005, a period when India beat Australia in a Test series at home and drew a Test series in Australia. On Tuesday, rain played a spoilsport as the semifinal clash was pushed to the reserve day with New Zealand 211/5 after 46.1 overs.last_img read more

Windies win was Athertons biggest Test upset

(AFP) West Indies’ stunning second Test win over England at Headingley was the biggest upset in the recent history of Test cricket, according to former England captain Michael Atherton.Michael AthertonHumiliated in an innings and 209-run defeat in the first Test, the tourists hit back to complete a sensational five-wicket victory, inspired by a pair of centuries from Barbados batsman Shai Hope.Writing in The Times on Wednesday, Atherton said England fans expecting to see another comfortable home win instead witnessed “a resurrection… of a once-proud cricketing nation fallen on hard times”.“This was one of the great modern Test matches, one that produced a truly astonishing result,” he added.“In my time watching, playing and commentating on Test cricket I cannot think of a bigger upset when taking into account the low expectations for a team with a horrendous away record who had subsided to a three-day defeat only the week before.“No one gave West Indies a prayer before the match, nor before the last day.”It was West Indies’ first Test win in England in 17 years and only their fourth Test win away from home against a team other than Bangladesh and Zimbabwe in 20 years.Hope, 23, had not scored a century in his 11 previous Tests, but became the first man to amass two hundreds in a first-class match at Headingley in the ground’s 127-year history.Kraigg Brathwaite, 24, combined with Hope for two partnerships worth a total of 390 runs and Atherton believes the pair could help West Indies recover their global standing.“These two players, 24 and 23 years of age respectively, represent the future of West Indies cricket and, on this evidence, greener pastures lie ahead,” Atherton wrote.“Brathwaite will become a high-class accumulator, but Hope has the chance to be even better than that, stylish and fluent as he is.“He has always been known for eye-catching shots but, here, in the course of two innings, he became a Test match batsman in the round, attaching those shots to a cast-iron defence and a commitment to lasting the course.”The three-match series concludes at Lord’s next week.

On Third Anniversary Of Josué Flores Murder Houston Police Ask Public To

first_imgAlvaro ‘Al’ Ortiz/Houston Public MediaA banner shows solidarity with Josué Flores’ family after the 11-year-old boy’s murder in Houston, in May 2016.May 17 marks the third anniversary of the murder of 11-year-old Josué Flores in Houston’s Near Northside and investigators are asking for help from the public. Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said new evidence is being analyzed at a Utah lab that specializes in DNA testing.Flores’ murder shocked Houston and especially the Near Northside neighborhood because of its brutality. The killer stabbed him multiple times at the 1900 block of Fulton Street when the boy was returning to his home after leaving Marshall Middle School.“We have evidence now in Utah at a lab that is utilizing techniques to extract DNA from evidence that our lab and our state lab does not the capacity to do,” said Acevedo on Friday during a media availability that Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and Flores’ mother also attended.The evidence is from a piece of clothing and HPD’s cold case squad is also investigating the case.Acevedo said that Andre Jackson, the homeless veteran who was charged with Flores’ murder and released in July 2017 because Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg dropped the charges, is still a person of interest for the investigators.The DA’s office said the results of DNA and blood analyses were inconclusive.Acevedo played a short video that was recorded by a surveillance camera the day of the murder near the place where it happened. The video shows an African-American man walking and wearing a distinctive jacket. Investigators are asking the public to help identify the man. According to police, he could be Jackson.HPD detectives are also asking potential witnesses of the crime who spoke to local media anonymously to come forward and help with the investigation.After the murder, Near Northside resident Stella Mireles-Walters started the Safe Walk Home program. It has trained neighbors to be vigilant, particularly when children go to school in the morning and when they leave, and alert HPD and other law enforcement agencies if they see somebody or something suspicious.Investigators and residents also thought that Flores’ murderer could have stayed at a homeless shelter the Salvation Army managed in the neighborhood. The organization closed the shelter in November.You can watch the video HPD showed and Chief Acevedo’s media availabilty here:PERSON OF INTEREST: Our homicide investigators want to speak to this man regarding the murder of Josue Flores, 11, in the 1900 block of Fulton on May 17, 2016.
