first_imgHis best time ever is 12.94 seconds. It’s also the best time recorded by a Jamaican in the 110m hurdles, but if he has his way, Olympic and World Championships medallist Hansle Parchment will be making some adjustments to that record in the coming months. It’s one of his key ambitions, along with a gold medal, as he floors the pedal towards a new season, with the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro drawing ever closer. Parchment rose from what seemed a lost season at one point to clock 13.03 seconds for second place behind Russian Sergey Shubenkov in the final at the IAAF World Championships in Beijing last August. He simply seems to have a knack for turning up when it matters. Like in London at the 2012 Olympic Games where, out of nowhere, he dropped a then-national record of 13.12 to win a surprise bronze medal, becoming the first Jamaican medallist in the event at this level. His 12.94 was the only bright spark during a miserable year, last year, when injuries and uncertainty were best exhibited in his disappointing fifth-place finish at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. It looked like it was going to be another year of ‘What ifs’ for the 25-year-old from Cashew Bush in St Thomas, when, boom, 13.08 at the National Senior Championships showed he was ready before his Beijing run and confirmed his immense ability! Still, Parchment, though pleased with his medal loot to date, is looking to add something a little shinier to his bounty and is hoping that an encouraging start to his background preparations will bring him closer to his aim of lifting Jamaican sprint hurdles to mind-boggling heights in quite the same way another towering Jamaican did in the straight sprints. “My preparations for the coming season have been much better than previous seasons. I have been feeling good so far. My background training has been going pretty well and even my coach is impressed with the work that is being put in at the moment, so I’m quite pleased, and I feel if we can continue like this, we will have a very good season,” Parchment told The Gleaner during a recent sit-down. “I’m looking forward to just going out there and creating a storm in the hurdles. I feel that If I can do what I have in mind, I can somewhat change the view of hurdling worldwide in Jamaica,” added Parchment. “We have a lot of youngsters coming up right now who are doing really well like Jaheel Hyde, Micahel O’Hara, and Omar McLeod, so I am really looking forward to Jamaica on a whole taking charge in hurdling.” Taking charge, for Parchment, also involves taking down his current personal best. He won’t share the time he has in mind, but it’s there as a constant reminder and source of motivation in the back of his head, on a Post-it on his refrigerator and in a note on his cell phone. He wants to go fast in 2016 – really fast. “I have some time objectives. I’m sure my coach (Fitz Coleman) has time objectives in his head as well. I have scribbled it down. I think about it every day: ‘How am I going to get to this time? How much work I need to put in to get there?’ Parchment shared. “I won’t tell you the time right now, but it’s my personal goal, and I am aiming for that.” Perhaps 12.80 seconds? After all, it is the world record. A wry smile was followed by a telling: “I want to do special things, amazing things.” There’s hardly a bigger stage than the Olympic Games. All things being equal, he will be heading to Rio next year with one eye on the top of the medal podium and another on the clock.last_img read more

But it was heartbreak for the fans of CSK when the team lost the match by just one run. They were furious over the umpire’s decision on MS Dhoni’s run out. They mocked it by saying that the Ambani family had bought another trophy. Some celebs also voiced their opinion on his wicket.Ranveer Singh, who was cheering for Mumbai Indians, was apparently happy with his wicket. The Bollywood star tweeted, “Dhoni’s run out was the biggest of several turning points! Game kept swinging like a pendulum! Thrilling to watch! Bumrah showing why he’s the best in the game! Malinga redeeming himself with a solid over when it mattered most! #MIvCSK #CSKvMI #IPL2019Final.”But actor R Sarath Kumar was very upset with the umpire for his wrong decision on MS Dhoni’s run out. He took to blast the latter and tweeted, “Congratulations Mumbai Indians but the fact remains that a controversial run out of Dhoni will be a blemish on umpiring, when in total doubt the benefit should have gone to the batsman #IPL2019Final #CSK.”Petta director Karthik Subbaraj also his anger against the umpire by tweeting, “Thala was not out… Bad umpiringgg… Well played team #Chennai…. Proud to be #CSK fan…. Hats off #ThalaDhoni & team. We love u always & forever..#Yellove Congratulations #MumbaiIndians And #manjrekar, your commentary sucked big time.”KRK went on to blame Nita Ambani for wrong decisions of the umpire. He tweeted, “Dhoni, Raina, Rayudu’s forcefully getting out and then Shane Watson’s unnecessary run out in the last over is proof that Ambani can do anything in India and money can do anything in this world.. #IPL2019Final #MIvsCSK.”Siddharth also expressed similar doubt about Mumbai Indians’ victory. He tweeted, “What a final! Well played #MumbaiIndians. No other final has gone down to the wire like this. It’s still a bit of a mystery how this match turned out. Losing 4 times to the same team is enough proof of submission. #CSKvMI #IPL.”On the other hand, some celebs were happy with the performance of Chennai Super Kings and they wished better luck for the next time. Music director S Thaman tweeted, “Good luck team @msdhoni #csk!! Well played @mipaltan ♥️ What a come back win last year for @ChennaiIPL Amzing bowling by @Jaspritbumrah93 Made Mumbai get this victory !! ♥️”Varalaxmi Sarathkumar tweeted, “Too close 1 run..well it’s a win for us anyway cos we r a superb team.. they have got us to the finals so many times..our team is mass with class..#dhoni we love u..we always have next year..#csk for life..u guys rock..I love u..#Yellove #WhistlePodu #ChennaiSuperKings #CSKForever.”Until next time.. love you #CSK #WhistlePodu #CSKForever love uuuuuuu @msdhoni #dhoniforever #yellove #yellowarmy @ChennaiIPL pic.twitter.com/4S8GPdXhsZ— varalaxmi sarathkumar (@varusarath) May 12, 2019last_img read more

first_imgVerizon Communications Inc (VZ.N) and unions representing nearly 40,000 wireline workers have reached a tentative deal “in principle” to end a strike that started April 13th, U.S. Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez said on Friday.Shares in Verizon, the No. 1 U.S. wireless company, jumped as much as 1.2 percent after the announcement and in afternoon trading were up almost 1 percent at $50.61.Workers that included network technicians and customer service representatives in the company’s Fios Internet, telephone and television services walked off the job after contract talks hit an impasse. The action was called by the Communications Workers of America and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.The parties are drafting an agreement that will be submitted to the unions for ratification and workers are expected to be back on the job next week, Perez said in a statement.Terms of the agreement have not been disclosed.Sticking points in the contract negotiations had included job relocations, offshoring call-center jobs, pensions and healthcare coverage.The tentative deal ends the potentially costly and sometime-contentious 44-day strike. The workers had been without a contract since their agreement expired in August and had been without healthcare coverage since May 1.The last contract negotiations in 2011 also led to a strike that ended after two weeks as contract talks continued.Union workers interviewed on Friday said they were relieved by the news of the tentative pact, but still remain wary as the deal terms are undisclosed.”(The strike’s) been a burden on my family and myself,” said Fitz Boyce, 45, a Verizon field technician, who has been protesting outside Verizon’s Times Square store in New York since the strike started.Verizon has agreed “to add good union jobs on the East Coast,” the CWA said in a statement.The agreement is consistent with Verizon’s “objective of creating high quality American jobs,” the company said in a statement.Verizon and union representatives had been in contract discussions mediated by the U.S. Department of Labor, after Perez, in mid-May, brought both parties back to the negotiating table.The work stoppage at Verizon stretched across several U.S. East Coast states, including New York and Massachusetts. Verizon said it had trained managers and thousands of non-union employees over the past year to ensure that service would not be disrupted.Company executives have hinted in recent weeks that the strike could pressure the bottom line, without providing details. Chief Financial Officer Fran Shammo said at a conference earlier in May that new installations and orders had “significantly dropped.” [L2N18L1GL]Since the strike started the workers picketed outside Verizon stores and a handful of conferences attended by company executives. The strike, one of the largest in recent years, drew the support of Democratic U.S. Presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton.Verizon has shifted its focus in recent years to new efforts in mobile video and advertising, while scaling back its Fios TV and Internet service.The company has stopped expanding its old landline phone network and the wireline unit generated about 29 percent of company revenue in 2015, down about 60 percent since 2000, and less than 7 percent of operating income.last_img read more

It was last down 9.8 percent.Swedish retailer H&M fell 3.8 percent despite reporting in-line sales figures, as the Asos stress spread. Next and Marks & Spencer fell 3.7 percent and 2.4 percent.Europe’s retail sector fell 1.3 percent, the worst-performing and hitting its lowest level since July 2016.M&A also drove some big moves with Ingenico tumbling after it said it had dropped talks over a possible deal.The stock fell 5.7 percent to its lowest level in five years.Leading euro zone stocks and Britain’s FTSE 100 were all set for their worst quarter since 2011, when the region was in the throes of the sovereign debt crisis.Investors smarting from a tough year also had a week of central bank events looming with meetings of the U.S. Federal Reserve and the Bank of England likely to move markets.last_img read more

first_imgPolice vehicle arsonist ‘identified’The police have claimed that the man who torched the police vehicle during clashes between the police and Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) activists on Wednesday has been identified.The Motijheel zone assistant commissioner of police Mishu Bishwas on Thursday morning told Prothom Alo the arsonist was Shahjalal Khandakar, a member of a convenor committee of Paltan thana Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal.The police officer said the young man who was jumping on the police vehicle has also been identified as a member of Chhatra Dal.However, Prothom Alo could not immediately verify the claim made by the police.Mishu Bishwas also said so far 30 people had been marked in connection with the clashes. Meanwhile, 65 people were detained in several drives, he added.But, neither the vandaliser nor arsonist of the police vehicle, Mishu added, were among the detainees.The police have filed three cases accusing BNP standing committee member Mirza Abbas with the Paltan police station.Paltan police station officer-in-charge Mahmudul Hassan said the cases were filed in connection with vandalising vehicles, arson, barricading roads, beating up members of the police and hindering government duties.BNP leader and activists said the clashes ensued when police charged batons on their activists to clear the roads.The BNP activists alleged that police fired a huge number of tear-gas shells and rubber bullets, turning the spot into a ‘battlefield.’Two police vehicles were torched and several vehicles were vandalised during the clashes.BNP claimed that around fifty of its leaders and activists were injured in the clashes while police claimed 23 members of police were injured.Police also said Mirza Abbas, his wife Afroza Abbas, BNP leaders Akhtaruzzaman and Nabiullah were behind the incident.However, BNP leader Mirza Abbas said, “It could have been sabotage by the government or the Awami League.”last_img read more

Photo: AFPIndian prime minister Narendra Modi on Saturday inaugurated a coastal radar system and military training centre in the Maldives on Saturday, as New Delhi seeks to fend off Chinese influence in the strategically-placed nation.The Maldives, a low-lying archipelago of more than a thousand tiny coral islands south of the Indian subcontinent, straddles the world’s busiest east-west maritime route.India, the country’s traditional ally, had watched former strongman leader Abdulla Yameen’s growing political and financial reliance on Beijing with unease.But Yameen’s election loss last September has seen the new administration under president Ibrahim Mohamed Solih gravitate back to the nation’s traditional benefactors in New Delhi.Modi and Solih inaugurated the training facility on Saturday, officials said, adding that both projects cost New Delhi $26 million.A joint statement said the two sides discussed the need to maintain peace and security in the Indian Ocean region.The leaders pledged to combat piracy, terrorism, organised crime and trafficking through “coordinated patrolling and aerial surveillance, exchange of information, and capacity building,” the statement said.Modi is making his second trip to the Maldives in less than seven months.The two-day visit is also Modi’s first foreign visit since taking the oath of office for his second term after an emphatic election win in May.Under Modi’s leadership, India earlier this year granted a $800 million line of credit to the Maldives, which remains heavily indebted to Beijing.The Indian premier next travels to neighbouring Sri Lanka, where he will hold talks with political leaders during a brief stopover.last_img read more

first_img Thursday, February 16, 2017 Posted by ORLANDO — Anyone who’s ever waited for bus transportation to get around Walt Disney World Resort – especially on a hot day with little kids in tow – will be thrilled to hear that the Florida resort is reportedly looking at cable cars as a new means to move guests between select parks and Disney hotels.According to the Orlando Sentinel, plans filed with the South Florida Water Management District suggest Disney is laying the groundwork for an extensive system of overhead cable cars. Reports indicate that the cable cars would transport guests between Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Art of Animation Resort, Caribbean Beach Resort and Epcot.While Disney does an admirable job of getting guests from place to place on its sprawling network of buses, the ground-based transportation system may be reaching its peak in terms of capacity and efficiency. And experts say Disney is unlikely to expand its popular monorail system due to cost.
