The already depleted pace attack, despite roping in replacements, are in a spot of bother.Kolkata Knight Riders finished third last season, which is a commendable achievement considering the consistent obstacles thrown at them last season. Much like Mumbai Indians, KKR also tends to rely on their core players.Advertisement Image Courtesy: My KhelThe Caribbean giants Andre Russell and Sunil Narine have been vital assets for the side ever since their arrival. Narine has gone from just a mystery bowler to one of the top all-rounders in the format by honing his batting skills during his stint with the franchise.With their batting unit pretty much set, the side focused on polishing up the bowling unit and capturing extra all-rounders. Harry Gurney, Lockie Ferguson, Anrich Nortje were the additions in the fast bowling department while Carlos Brathwaite ending up being the bumper buy.Advertisement The biggest asset for the franchise still remains their spin department. The trio of Kuldeep Yadav, Sunil Narine and Piyush Chawla have controlled the middle overs for the team countless times. Their role in making Eden Gardens their fortress is insurmountable.Despite losing out star players such as Mitchell Starc, Trent Boult, and Manish Pandey, Kolkata have fared well, but this season will be a true testament to cement their status as one of the best teams in the competition.The appointment of Dinesh Karthik as captain was the major change among others that took place in the KKR camp last season. Leadership by Gautam Gambhir was instrumental in both of their season triumphs.Kolkata Knight Riders’ coaching staff led by Jacques Kallis have clearly thought of the future with their approach with Shubhman Gill and Prasidh Krishna considering the waning careers of Robin Uthappa and others.The weight of their title chances lies heavily on the shoulders of the spin trio with Kuldeep Yadav expected to play a key role considering his exploits with the Indian team over the last year.Along with the spin department, Kolkata also possesses a lethal top order which can terrorize the bowlers once clicked. Chris Lynn, despite struggling on a number of occasions on the slow Indian surfaces, will be slotted alongside Sunil Narine who has bedazzled the league with his unconventional batting style.It would take a herculean effort from the Kolkata Knight Riders to claim a record-equalling third IPL trophy, and that is what we can expect from them. Taking from their motto Korbo Lorbo Jeetbo, they will act, fight and win.Predicted XIChris Lynn, Sunil Narine, Robin Uthappa, Nitish Rana, Shubhman Gill, Dinesh Karthik (c)(wk), Andre Russell, Kuldeep Yadav, Piyush Chawla, Prasidh Krishna, Lockie FergusonRead Also:IPL 2019 Preview: Kings XI PunjabSunrisers Hyderabad unveils Coolwinks as the Principal Sponsor for IPL Season 12 Advertisementlast_img read more

Strong start pushes Nelson Leafs to top of hockey charts

first_imgThe hot start by the Nelson Leafs has not gone unnoticed on the Junior B Hockey landscape.The Green and White leave September and begin October near the top of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League, and fifth overall in Canadian Junior B rankings.“I would not say I am surprised per say,” said Leaf GM Lance Morey after squad put together a 6-1-2 record and complete the opening month of the season unbeaten in six games.“I knew starting the year we had the talent to be a very good team.”However, Morey isn’t quite ready to book the route for the Championship Parade quite yet.“It is nice to see things falling in place, but it’s a long season and we do play in the toughest division in the league,” explained the Leafs GM.“It will be a battle all year with Beaver Valley, Castlegar and Grand Forks.”Speaking of Beaver Valley.The Nitehawks invade the NDCC Arena to open the two-game home set for the Leafs Friday at 7 p.m.“Friday is a huge game for our team, even this early in the season,” Morey said.“BV has been the class of the KI and our Division for a few years and no one should take them lightly.” Nelson managed to escape with a 1-0 victory over the defending KIJHL champs on opening night thanks to strong netminder by Josh Williams.Not only did Williams register the shutout, but he also made a game-saving save in the final seconds to preserve the victory. “And, of course we have had great goaltending to date,” Morey said. “I don’t see that changing.”Beaver Valley enters the game four points behind the Murdoch Division leading Leafs with a 4-3 record.Success in the Murdoch Division is guaranteed by winning those big divisional games.The Leafs pulled one out of the fire last weekend in Grand Forks, edging the Bruins 3-2 in double overtime.Nelson dominated the game, out shooting the Bruins 55-25.“The win in Grand Forks was huge for us,” Morey explained.“We dominated the game from the opening puck drop. Their goalie was stellar that night and we had to fight for all five periods to come out with the two points.”Saturday, Nelson hosts Spokane Braves.The two games enable Leaf executive to host Parent Weekend by inviting all the parents of the players to visit Nelson to watch their boys in action.“It’s also our Parent Weekend so we want to be sure our kids keep their emotions in check,” he said.“Our coaches have done a good job of the team has no huge highs and lows during the game, and our older players have been great at leading by example.”BLUELINES: After playing five of eight games at home in September, the schedule gets a little tougher for the Leafs with only three games at home in October. Games on the road include stops in Creston, Golden, Invermere, Kimberley, Spokane and Castlegar. . . .Josh Williams continues to be one of the better goalies in the league to start the season. Williams is unbeaten in five games and sits second overall in goalie standings with a 1.37 goals against average.last_img read more

Jackson County Airport Upgrades

first_imgJackson County AirportConstruction on a major upgrade is expected to start this spring at the Jackson County Airport. Operations Manager Jim Rowell explains the upcoming replacement of the aviation fuel system. “Each Year the Federal Government gives the State of North Carolina block grant money or non primary entitlement money for us, that’s $150,000 a year, we have to match that 10%, which would be $16,000. You can hold on to the money for 4 years. After that time, if you’ve not spent that money it will go to someone else. We’ve held on to that money and took bids about 2 weeks ago.” NHM was the lowest bidder of the three. NHM was selected to provide the work which is expected to get underway in April. The total bid was $539,000 of which 90% will be from the FAA and state airport improvement fund. The project will also include the expansion of a ramp to make it more convenient for larger airplanes to refuel.last_img read more

NPM Wants To Push JavaScript Developers To Make Lego-Like Web Apps

first_img7 Types of Video that will Make a Massive Impac… Growing Phone Scams: 5 Tips To Avoid Tags:#GitHub#JavaScript#modular programming#npm#premium hosting How to Write a Welcome Email to New Employees? lauren orsinicenter_img Why You Love Online Quizzes For all its virtues as the lingua franca for developing Web apps, JavaScript hasn’t always lent itself to modern and efficient programming practices. Not long ago, for instance, shortcomings in the language led many developers to write JavaScript programs as huge, monolithic entities instead of building them from common and reusable software building blocks, also known as “modules.”JavaScript is more amenable to such Lego-like modularization than it used to be, but the practice still isn’t as widespread as some would like. So NPM, a startup mainly known for eponymous open-source software that installs and manages JavaScript programs, has decided to give things a nudge in the right direction.Its new initiative is called Private Modules, and at first glance it mainly looks like a premium code-repository service, similar in many respects to GitHub’s services. NPM already offered a free Javascript-only repository service for open-source code. Private Modules introduces a paid option for developers or companies that want to keep their JavaScript private.But that’s not the interesting element here. Where GitHub’s paid options limit users to a specific number of proprietary-code repositories—$7 to $50 a month gets you between five and 50 private code repositories—NPM has gone, well, unlimited. A flat fee of $7 a month for individuals, or $5 a month per person at an organization, gets you as many private JavaScript-storage buckets as you want.Why unlimited? Because, NPM CEO and founder Isaac Schlueter says, it will encourage companies to build and use individual JavaScript code modules, each of which can now live in its own repository.All Mod(ule) ConsNPM CEO Isaac Schlueter“There’s a broad trend where people are switching from building monolithic apps to small modules that can be pieced together,” Schlueter told me in an interview.Such modules vastly simplify the process of both building and updating programs. Much the way it’s far simpler to replace a light fixture than to completely rewire your house, it’s much easier to pull out and replace an old code module with a new one than it would be to rewrite a much larger monolithic program.See also: How Node.js Stays On TrackNPM’s move here basically reinforces the notion of modularity at the repository level. It’s an idea you might even sum up in a slogan: “One repo, one module.”Edmond Meinfelder, director of Web and mobile engineering at DocuSign, uses NPM Enterprise to manage the company’s massive—and monolithic—JavaScript codebase. “We have a huge legacy code base, but we’re just starting to refactor it and break it down into small modules,” he said. “Modules are easy to understand, easy to write tests for, and make creating new functionality much easier.”While Meinfelder said DocuSign will continue to use the Enterprise option since it’s tailored to large companies, he plans to use Private Modules as an individual. Furthermore, he said that NPM’s move in this area helped DocuSign realize that it’s worth the effort to break its JavaScript programs down into modules:On Private Modules, you could host all the modules of an app without worrying about going over your pricing plan. Private Modules shows companies and individuals that its within their price range to build apps the right way.More Modules … And Fewer Users?When the announcement made Hacker News Tuesday, however, some individual developers were less enthusiastic about the new direction. One major concern: Private Modules might effectively limit the number of users who can work on non-open-source projects. GitHub’s premium pay-per-repository model, by contrast, encourages unlimited collaboration on a limited number of repositories.“Everything looks pretty awesome, except the payment model… With NPM’s model all my collaborators will have to pay for NPM private modules as well,” one commenter noted. Another suggested that NPM’s per-user payment scheme might turn off small companies:Sounds like a big pain to have to pay individually for each person on a team if your company wants to use private modules. We’re generally willing to throw money at problems like those private modules solve, but if we have to do it a dozen times it probably isn’t going to happen.Schlueter remains confident that NPM is moving in the right direction by encouraging practices that have been spreading among developers for decades.“If we want to look back to the historical roots of this decision, even the shift from Multix to UNIX was about splitting up code into independent parts,” he said. “From the GNU Revision Control System to Git, the trend has been for things being broken into smaller pieces. NPM is a really good example of that in practice.”Lead image by David Hamilton for ReadWrite (via Build with Chrome); photo of Isaac Schlueter courtesy of NPM Related Posts last_img read more

D’Aversa: ‘Parma not happy with result’

first_img Watch Serie A live in the UK on Premier Sports for just £11.99 per month including live LaLiga, Eredivisie, Scottish Cup Football and more. Visit: Parma boss Roberto D’Aversa was “satisfied with the performance against Fiorentina, less so with the result.” The Gialloblu held the home side to a 1-1 draw, but D’Aversa believes they could’ve won had two offside calls not gone against Gervinho. “The performance satisfies me, less so the result. We had to do better, especially with the final pass. Gervinho was called offside two times when he wasn’t,” the coach said in a press conference. The protocol with VAR is to give the benefit of the doubt in tight decisions, but the assistant referee was a little too eager today. D’Aversa revealed that many of his players are not in the best physical condition due to playing three games over the last week amid an injury crisis. “Yann Karamoh stayed on the field despite a sprain, Juraj Kucka and Giuseppe Pezzella gritted their teeth, we are not in optimal condition. We hope to recover players very soon. “We had to suffer in the second half, Fiorentina have excellent technique and important players.” Parma are now 10th in the table, but have only won once in their last five games.last_img read more

Harsimrat writes to RS chairman for action on Jairam, Renuka

first_imgNew Delhi, July 24 (PTI) Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal has written to Rajya Sabha Chairman seeking “stern action” against Congress MPs Jairam Ramesh and Renuka Chaudhary, accusing the duo of humiliating her in the House.Referring to the sequence of events preceding the adjournment of Rajya Sabha for the day on July 22 which saw disruptions over AAP member Bhagwant Manns live streaming of Parliament video, Badal said Ramesh and Chaudhary used “derogatory language” against her and “violated her dignity both as a woman and a minister”.”After the House adjourned for the day, to my surprise Jairam Ramesh came rushing towards me and started using foul and offensive language without any provocation.”He used highly objectionable aggressive discriminatory words for me. He questioned my propriety to speak in Rajya Sabha and also my presence in the House,” Badal, the Akali Dal MP from Bathinda, said in her letter.She said Chaudhary also used derogatory language against her and sought action against both the Congress MPs.”In the meantime, Renuka Chaudhary came rushing into the House and despite being a lady started using loud derogatory language against me and called the government and its ministers kachra (garbage). Both kept screaming at me…”I was ridiculed and humiliated in the presence of my colleagues and house staff and my dignity both as a minister and a woman were violated,” the Food Processing Industries Minister said.The minister said the attempts of Ramesh and Chaudhary to “intimidate” her had “hurt her deeply”.”I had never thought I would be subjected to such obnoxious behavior inside the House. The conduct of these two members was highly objectionable and totally unacceptable. I request you to take stern action against them in order to protect healthy democratic traditions,” Badal urged Rajya Sabha Chairman Hamid Ansari.advertisementBadal said she was in the House trying to give some information about Manns video.A war of words followed between Badal and Ramesh and Chaudhary, who objected to her interventions during the proceedings related to a private members bill.Just when Badal was speaking, Congress MP KVP Raos private members bill on special package to Andhra Pradesh was to be taken up but that could not happen and the House was adjourned for the day around 2.44 PM.Badal, in her letter to the RS chairman, defended herself saying, “As a minister I have every right to have access to both the Houses and express my views. Moreover I was speaking with the permission of the Chair. And as long as I have permission of the Chair no one can deny me this privilege.”Badal has also threatened to move notices of breach of privilege against Ramesh and Chaudhary.

Malnutrition during this period can have detrimental effects that last a lifetime. This is one of many areas in which child and maternal health are closely linked and highlights the need for collaboration between those working each field.On October 21, at the Global Health Council, Cindy Huang, an advisor to the U.S. State Department, noted “Improving nutrition in these 1,000 days leads to immediate gains in mortality and morbidity reduction, and lifelong gains in education, poverty reduction, and economic growth.” The event also included presentations from a number of speakers as part of the “New and Innovative Approaches to Maternal and Child Health,” which can be viewed on GHC’s websiteIn December 2010, the Woodrow Wilson Center, MHTF and UNFPA will host a Policy Dialogue on nutrition and maternal health.
