Cardiff: Captain Eoin Morgan is hoping for a better fielding effort as England seek to get their World Cup campaign back on track following their shocking loss to Pakistan. Bidding to win their maiden title in the sport’s showpiece, the hosts started their campaign with a convincing 104-run victory against South Africa before they stumbled in their second game, losing by 14 runs to Pakistan. They now clash with Bangladesh who shocked South Africa in an earlier match. Also Read – We don’t ask for kind of tracks we get: Bowling coach Arun”We didn’t deserve to win the game. But we played some really good cricket, two guys scored a hundred and we nearly chased down 350,” Morgan said in his pre-match press conference in the Welsh capital Friday. “We lacked a bit in the field. And that still remains the case. Hopefully we put in a better showing in the field,” the skipper added. Morgan searched for positives in the defeat. “But defeat presents a huge opportunity to learn more about your game and improve. Games where we have been defeated heavily have been the ones where we learned the most. Also Read – Bastian Schweinsteiger announces retirement, could join Germany set-up”We still managed to stay in the game, we remained in a headspace where we still believed in winning the game. “That shows a lot more to ourselves, probably more than to our supporters, they don’t see that all the time. They see an exciting team the majority of the time. But when we lose we see our character, the other side of our game.” Morgan said England would not change their aggressive approach in Saturday’s match here. “All we talked about is sticking to what we do well, looking at our strengths,” he said. “Previous to the tournament starting we talked about losing games — how would we react? What would we counter that with? “Everything comes back to focusing on ourselves, how we win games of cricket and get the best out of ourselves.” Four years ago, defeat by Bangladesh sent England crashing out of the last edition, but much has changed since then, with the hosts entering the tournament as the number one ODI side. Having beaten South Africa and pushed New Zealand all the way, Bangladesh are a serious threat. “It is going to be a difficult game. They are a good side and I think people underestimate them. We certainly don’t,” Morgan said. “They are a side that has played a lot of cricket, their senior players especially have played a lot of games, more so than our senior players so they are a threat. Hopefully we can play well and overcome them. “We were beaten by a better team in 2015. They deserved to win that night.”

Mounting “inhumane” attacks on humanitarian workers, as well as unacceptable demands made by armed groups, have forced the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) to shut down some of distributions for up to one million hungry people in Somalia, the agency said today.Escalating attacks against WFP’s humanitarian operations in southern Somalia have made it “virtually impossible” for the agency to continue its work, it said in a statement.“WFP is deeply concerned about rising hunger and suffering among the most vulnerable due to these unprecedented and inhumane attacks on purely humanitarian operations,” it added.“WFP is an impartial, non-political humanitarian agency that has been working in partnership with the people of Somalia for more than 40 years, providing assistance to the poorest of the poor throughout Somalia’s years of conflict and before,” the agency underscored. “The recent pressures on our work from armed groups in southern Somalia are impeding our humanitarian mandate.”It is repositioning stocks from southern areas in case people begin to move away from areas where food distributions have been suspended. Six of its offices in southern Somalia are temporarily closed, and staff have also been moved to safer areas to ensure the food assistance continues to reach as many of those in need as possible.Staff safety is of paramount concern to WFP, and recent attacks, threats, harassment and demands for payments – for up to $20,000 every six months to ensure staff safety – by armed groups have choked the humanitarian food lifeline. Further, WFP has received demands to remove women from their jobs.Agency spokesperson Emilia Casella told reporters in Geneva that 95 per cent of the territory where WFP operations had been disrupted was controlled by the Al-Shabaab opposition group.In the rest of the Horn of Africa nation, which has not had a functioning government in nearly two decades, WFP continues to provide life-saving food supplies to over two-thirds of the people it has been targeting – or 1.8 million people. “Even in good years, Somalia is only able to meet 40 per cent of the food needs of its population through internal production,” WFP – whose operation to reach all Somalis in need is fully funded for the coming months – pointed out.On average in the past five years, only one-third of the food needed to feed all Somalis was to be locally produced.WFP is working closely with its partners to have supplies ready for Somalis moving within the country and also crossing borders into neighbouring nations. 5 January 2010Mounting “inhumane” attacks on humanitarian workers, as well as unacceptable demands made by armed groups, have forced the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) to shut down some of distributions for up to one million hungry people in Somalia, the agency said today.
As one commune was vaccinated, meningitis cases turned up in neighbouring areas, but the World Health Organization (WHO) said while the Government of Burundi estimated that it needed 1 million doses of vaccine, only 455,000 doses were immediately available. The rest would take up to three weeks to arrive from WHO headquarters in Geneva.In its third round of vaccinations, WHO is currently inoculating 102,583 people in Ngozi Province, it said.Meanwhile, a weeklong anti-polio drive employing 1,500 trained local volunteers in the Central African Republic (CAR) and giving the second part of a two-dose vaccine has ended successfully, WHO and the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) said.Reports of two cases of the deadly “wild polio” in the northern part of the country were confirmed two months ago.
FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva presented on Tuesday the new regional Plan for Food Security, Nutrition and Hunger Eradication by 2025 at summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) in San José, Costa Rica.“This proposal is a tool to help CELAC countries design national plans to transform their commitment to eradicating hunger and extreme poverty in the region into a reality,” said Mr. Graziano da Silva, and later added via social media that CELAC leaders were considering the plan.FAO, in a press release issued Tuesday, said: “The plan was developed by FAO – with support from the Latin American Integration Association (ALADI) and the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) – at the request of CELAC governments.”“It is based on four broad pillars: strategy coordination at the national and regional levels, with a special focus on gender issues; sustainably ensuring access to safe and nutritious foods; widening school feeding programmes with a priority on addressing all forms of malnutrition, from under-nutrition to obesity, and; tackling the challenges posed to food security by climate change,” according to FAO.The plan seeks to identify and establish links that can generate “virtuous circles of development,” the food agency said, citing as an example linking family farming with school feeding programmes. According to FAO, Latin America and the Caribbean represent the only region in the world which has collectively achieved the first Millennium Development Goal (MDG) of halving the proportion of people who suffer from hunger by 2015. And the region is set to reach the more stringent World Food Summit goal of halving the total number of undernourished people.

OFTEN CONSIDERED A weed, corn salad is a super-hardy and low-growing winter salad with a mild, nutty flavour. It is one of the many winter-hardy salad leaves we sow in the late summer and early autumn to last through the winter.We generally do a couple of sowings every two to three weeks from September, to keep us going with occasional pickings of winter leaves until the new season salads arrive in spring.SowingI’ve used two different methods for sowing corn salad and haven’t noticed any real difference between the two. You can either sow it directly in the soil (in drills around 10cm apart) or in module trays for later transplanting (spacing the plants 10cm apart).Germination takes about 1-2 weeks. Corn salad will grow in most soils – it’s not fussy. It’s best sown at the end of the year, and won’t do so well in the hotter weather of summer. So it’s best sown from the end of August to October.GrowingKeep the area weed-free and moist if the weather is dry. Corn salad will get to about 10cm high and wide.HarvestingCorn salad will be ready to crop in about 10 weeks. You can either harvest the whole plant or cut them down at the soil and see if they will grow back (you might get a second growth this way). Alternatively, take the outer leaves only on plants to encourage re-growth. The plants will run to seed eventually in the spring if left in the soil. A groundnut or peanut oil will bring out the lovely nutty flavour in a salad.Recommended VarietiesVit, Lamb’s TongueProblemsMildew can be an issue in the autumn/ winter polytunnel if you don’t keep it well ventilated. Slugs will be partial to it too – so time to put the beer traps back in action.GIY TipsCorn salad is a surprisingly strong performer when it comes to nutrition and is one of the healthiest of all salads.

This recipe comes from New York Times contributor Florence Fabricant, so she calls the Lamb’s lettuce ‘mache’, naturally.Ingredients• 1 very small rack of lamb or 8 tiny well-trimmed chops• ½ cup of extra virgin olive oil• 2 ½ tablespoons sherry wine vinegar• ½ teaspoon minced fresh rosemary• ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard• Salt and freshly ground black pepper• 250g lamb’s lettuce, rinsed and driedDirectionsPreheat oven to 220 degrees C. Brush rack of lamb with a little olive oil and place in a shallow baking pan in oven. Roast for 20 minutes for medium-rare. Remove from oven.While lamb is roasting, heat vinegar with rosemary in a small, stainless steel saucepan until vinegar is reduced to little more than a tablespoon.Off heat, beat in the mustard and gradually whisk in remaining olive oil until well blended. Season to taste with salt and pepper.Place the lamb’s lettuce in a bowl and toss with all but 2 tablespoons of the warm dressing. Divide salad onto 4 plates. As soon as the rack is cooked, slice into individual chops and place 2 chops on lettuce on each plate.Moisten each chop with a little of remaining dressing and serve at once.Michael Kelly is a freelance journalist, author and founder of GIY.Click here for more GIY tips and recipes.

La mécanique cérébrale des corvidés, ces oiseaux intelligentsPubliant leurs travaux dans Nature Communications, des chercheurs allemands ont étudié la façon dont travaille, durant des tests cognitifs, le cerveau si particulier de ces oiseaux si intelligents que sont les corvidés.”Primates à plumes”, c’est le surnom parfois donné par les éthologistes aux corvidés. Les corbeilles, corneilles et pies notamment sont des oiseaux si intelligents qu’ils sont capables de fabriquer et utiliser des outils (très simples, bien sûr), de se rappeler un grand nombre de sites d’alimentation ou encore de planifier leur comportement social en fonction de celui des autres membres de leur groupe. Des capacités qui ne cessent de fasciner les spécialistes.Pour la première fois, des chercheurs de l’Université de Tübingen (Allemagne) ont étudié ‘en direct’ la physiologie à l’œuvre dans le cerveau de corvidés durant un comportement intelligent. Pour cela, ces scientifiques ont formé des corneilles noires (Corvus corone) à mémoriser une image donnée, pour la reconnaître, un peu plus tard, parmi les 2 images affichées sur l’écran tactile d’un ordinateur. Chaque oiseau devait, suivant la règle édictée par l’expérimentateur, indiquer du bec soit l’image déjà connue, soit l’image nouvelle. Les corneilles ont excellé à ce jeu, passant assez facilement, en outre, d’une règle du jeu à l’autre et s’adaptant aux changements d’images imposés parfois par les expérimentateurs.Intelligent différemment À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Ces derniers, durant les tests, observaient l’activité neuronale des corvidés au niveau du nidopallium caudo-latéral, une région du cerveau associée aux plus hauts niveaux de cognition chez les oiseaux. Les chercheurs ont pu nettement observer l’activation d’un certain groupe de cellules nerveuses lors de l’exercice “trouver l’image connue”, et l’activation d’un autre groupe de neurones lors de l’exercice “trouver l’image nouvelle”. C’est ce système cérébral qui permet la concentration et la souplesse mentale observées chez les corvidés mais atteintes par peu d’animaux. “Beaucoup de fonctions sont réalisées différemment chez les oiseaux, car une longue histoire évolutive nous sépare de ces descendants directs des dinosaures. Cela signifie que les cerveaux d’oiseaux peuvent nous montrer une ‘solution alternative’, une façon dont un comportement intelligent est produit avec une anatomie différente”, explique la neurobiologiste Lena Veit. “Nous pouvons tirer des conclusions […] en examinant les ressemblances et les différences fonctionnelles des zones cérébrales concernées”, conclut le Pr Andreas Nieder.Le 8 décembre 2013 à 19:17 • Maxime Lambert

The case said to be with insufficient evidence to go any further with the matter against Hinson, who had been held since late September — initially in Provo and then he was on remand at Her Majesty’s Prison in Grand Turk. No word yet on his status with the Police Force. Hinson had been suspended for his alleged role in the five fires and this loss for the prosecutor and the police means it is back to square one for the investigation. The public was enraged at the boldness of the incident and destruction of the car and then at the allegation that a police officer was believed responsible. Many thought the case was a slam dunk.

Kit Harrington aka Jon Snow in Game of ThronesFacebook/ Game of ThronesGame of Thrones season 8 may show the fall of Jon Snow. From the several speculations and the theories, it looks like Sansa Stark’s cousin brother won’t survive the end battle.Over the years, hundreds of theories have been discussed when it comes to Jon Snow in Game of Thrones. Ahead of its season eight’s premiere, we bring you some of the best theories about the King in the North that might be true or would change the show, even if something like this remotely happens.Jon Snow marrying Cersei Lannister:This is a far-fetched theory about Jon Snow and Cersei Lannister. Cersei has killed Ned Stark and on her orders, House Frey executed several key members from the Stark family. In the season seven of Game of Thrones, it was revealed that both Jon and Cersei have absolute contempt for each other but at the same time, Jon needs to save everyone from the Night King and Cersei wishes to rule all the Seven Kingdoms. If these two join hands and become partners, then they would become the strongest allies, who can put an end to the White Walkers. Jon Snow and Cersei Lannister in Game of Thrones season 8Game of Thrones/FacebookIf Jon Snow marries Cersei Lannister, then it will break the heart of Daenerys Targaryen and we might never know how the mother of the dragons will react to this betrayal.Jon Snow becoming Night King:If you don’t know how to put an end to your enemy, the best way is to join hands with him. There is this interesting theory about Jon Snow that suggests that after the death of Daenerys Targaryen and her two dragons, Jon Snow will be left alone and will have no idea how to end Night King. He will then understand that Night King wishes to transform him into a White Walker so that he can go and retire. Jon will accept the offer and will take all the White Walkers beyond the wall and will never come back.This sounds like a fairytale in which the Prince solves everything, but as we all know, Game of Thrones is anything but a fairytale. Jon Snow in Game of Thrones season 8Game of Thrones/FacebookJon Snow’s son is Azor Ahai:We know that Jon Snow is now in a relationship with his aunt Daenerys Targaryen. They might have a child in the upcoming season and their child would become the promised prince. The young prince will reunite all the Seven Kingdoms as it will have the blood of a dragon and a wolf. He would become the mightiest warrior and will ultimately sit on the Iron Throne.Kit Harington will reprise his role of Jon Snow in Game of Thrones season 8. The award-winning show will return in mid-April on HBO and other streaming services.
Kapil Dev with the World Cup trophy in 1983Twitter/Cricket World CupIt is a well-known fact that before the liberalisation of Indian economy, the cricketers who represented the country were paid salaries that are a pittance compared to what players of this current generation earn. Even 20-25 years ago, international cricketers were earning a fortune in comparison to the money that the likes of Kapil Dev and Sunil Gavaskar made.When India won the 1983 World Cup, members of the victorious team hardly made any financial gains. In fact, Lata Mangeshkar, an ardent cricket fan herself, performed at a concert to raise money that can be given as a reward to the triumphant players.Now, a sheet listing the salaries of Indian players for a one-day game from the same year has appeared on social media thanks to sports journalist Makrand Waingankar. He tweeted a photo of this sheet, which contains the name of 14 cricketers in the squad and the team manager Bishen Singh Bedi, who were part of a one-day match played on September 21, 1983. The picture tweeted by WaingankarTwitterAll players as well as the team manager were given Rs 1500 as the match fee and Rs 200/day for three days as daily allowance. In total, the money amounted to Rs 2100 for each player and the manager.Some of the social media users tried to estimate how much Rs 2100 would amount to in modern times. One tweeter said it would be around Rs 30,000. This doesn’t sound all that bad but is still peanuts compared with what today’s cricket stars are making.The likes of Virat Kohli, who are in Grade A+ of the pay-scale, earn Rs 7 Crore per year. Even domestic cricketers are making Rs 35,000 per day for a 4-day game. You can see how things have changed.Many people, on seeing the date and the name of the players, assumed that this sheet relates to a match from the World Cup. All 14 players in the list were part of India’s World Cup-winning squad. Virat Kohli makes Rs 7 crore every year from his BCCI contractGetty imagesHowever, Waingankar revealed that this pay list is from an India vs Pakistan match played during latter team’s tour of India that year. It wasn’t an official ODI but a Prime Minister’s Relief Fund Match played at the iconic Jawahar Lal Nehru Stadium in New Delhi. This match has become famous for the heroics of Kirti Azad who played a lightning innings of 71, studded with 6 sixes, to win the match for India.Interestingly, the tweet was accompanied with a remark from Waingankar where he says, “Each one of them deserve (sic) 10 Cr.” Bedi, the manager of that team, responded to this comment by saying: “The Boys Yes..not the Manager…Seriously..!!”There was a huge reaction to this picture and tweets flooded in expressing their surprise at the meagre salaries that legends such as Gavaskar and Mohinder Amarnath were drawing.

Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Urban ecologists have been observing how socioeconomics impact species diversity for nearly two decades. Previous studies have determined that higher affluence is frequently associated with more biological diversity across species of plants, birds, bats, and lizards–a phenomenon coined the “luxury effect.” Scientists have only recently begun examining the relationship between socioeconomics and arthropods, a group that includes insects and their close relatives. Arthropods can have six legs (like moths), eight legs (like spiders), or sometimes one hundred legs (like centipedes), and fly or wander from the outside environment into the indoor world. The image above highlights an arthropod often identified indoors: the book louse.”The biodiversity of the indoor environment is still a relatively unexplored area of research,” says Michelle Trautwein, co-author and curator of entomology at the Academy. “Our houses are really permeable and dynamic. Through our studies, we hope to inspire citizens all over the globe to get curious about the species in their everyday lives. We still have so much to learn about indoor ecology and the ever-evolving relationship between humans and arthropods.” Credit: © Matt Bertone of North Carolina State University Explore further (Phys.org)—A team of researchers from the California Academy of Sciences and North Carolina State University has found that homes in wealthy neighborhoods tend to harbor more arthropod species than do homes in places that are less affluent. In their paper published in the journal Biology Letters, the team describes how they conducted an arthropod survey of homes from a variety of locations throughout the Raleigh, North Carolina area, what they found and possible reasons for the differences.

Exoskeletons and economics: indoor arthropod diversity increases in affluent neighbourhoods, Biology Letters (2016). DOI: 10.1098/rsbl.2016.0322AbstractIn urban ecosystems, socioeconomics contribute to patterns of biodiversity. The ‘luxury effect’, in which wealthier neighbourhoods are more biologically diverse, has been observed for plants, birds, bats and lizards. Here, we used data from a survey of indoor arthropod diversity (defined throughout as family-level richness) from 50 urban houses and found that house size, surrounding vegetation, as well as mean neighbourhood income best predict the number of kinds of arthropods found indoors. Our finding, that homes in wealthier neighbourhoods host higher indoor arthropod diversity (consisting of primarily non-pest species), shows that the luxury effect can extend to the indoor environment. The effect of mean neighbourhood income on indoor arthropod diversity was particularly strong for individual houses that lacked high surrounding vegetation ground cover, suggesting that neighbourhood dynamics can compensate for local choices of homeowners. Our work suggests that the management of neighbourhoods and cities can have effects on biodiversity that can extend from trees and birds all the way to the arthropod life in bedrooms and basements.Press release In studying the numbers, the researchers found that the average home in a wealthy neighborhood had approximately 100 different species of arthropods in it, whereas those in less expensive neighborhoods had roughly half that number. The researchers suggest the discrepancy is due to differences in the environment outside of the homes. Richer neighborhoods tend to have houses with lush gardens and parks and the people that live there tend to expend more time and money on them resulting in more places for bugs to breed. Most people know that sometimes bugs get into their houses—flies, ants, mosquitoes and other insects are quite common, though most people do their best to get rid of them. What most people probably do not know is that a lot of other types of bugs live in their home as well—most of which they never see. Many of these bugs are arthropods—invertebrate animals such as spiders, crustaceans and other insects. In this new effort, the researchers sought to learn more about the diversity of these bugs in homes. They note also that prior studies had found that richer neighborhoods tended to have more plant and animal diversity in areas outside of the home. For this study, they wanted to know what was going on inside.As the researchers also note, few studies have looked at biodiversity in the home, which is unfortunate as people spend on average 90 percent of their time indoors—which means sharing space with a plethora of other creatures. To gain some perspective, the researchers fanned out across the city of Raleigh asking homeowners if they would allow a survey to be conducted—the team wound up gaining access to approximately 50 homes, all within forty miles of the downtown area, from a variety of neighborhoods.

BOGOTÁ, Colombia – Colombian police said Monday they had arrested a family of four, including a teenager, who were together carrying 91 cocaine and heroin capsules in their stomachs.The Colombian “drug mules,” who were on their way to the Dominican Republic, were carrying more than 3 kilograms (6.6 pounds) of the illicit drugs, police said.The four suspects were arrested Sunday at the Cucutá airport, near the border of Colombia and Venezuela, before boarding a flight to Santo Domingo, via Panama.The mother, 39, her 21-year-old son, 16-year-old daughter and their stepfather, 67, had obtained passports just four days earlier and “were traveling by plane for the first time, with light baggage, but pretending to go on a vacation,” police said in a statement.All four were taken to a local hospital, where X-rays revealed they had 54 latex capsules of heroin and 37 of cocaine in their stomachs, 24 of which were in the teenager.“A total of 2,077 grams of heroin and 1,227 of cocaine hydrochloride, worth up to $100,000 in Central America” were seized, the statement said.The parents, who worked as street vendors, and the son, a mason, face trial. The daughter was put into the care of child protection services.Police, who are attempting to identify the traffickers who supplied the “drug mules,” said the family had been recruited with offers of new clothes and money upon their return. Colombian police said they have arrested 138 drug mules trying to board international flights with capsules hidden in their bodies this year, including 35 foreign nationals.

July 28, 2008 Crafting the bronze wind bells is a labor intensive process. Presently the Foundry Apse is workspace for about five artists who shape the sand molds and pour the molten liquid metal to cast Soleri Original bells. Over the next few postings, we will present them at work on the stages of bell production. While the bronze ingots (bars of metal) are melting at 2200F in the propane-heated furnace, the foundry artists get to work shaping the sand molds. Damp sand gets packed around aluminum bell patterns (there are about 38 different styles / shapes in the collection) inside a 2-piece wood and metal frame called a snapflask (the top half is called the cope and the bottom half the drag). [Photo & text: Amber Klatt] After agitation on the pneumatic press, the snapflask frame is opened and the aluminum pattern removed. The cope block of sand, which reads the outside of the aluminum pattern, has indentations in it, while the drag side has mounds of sand since it read the interior of the aluminum pattern. [Photo & text: Amber Klatt] At this point, the artists use stylus tools to impress the designs into the cope sand. These become the images that are seen on the outside of the cast bells. Each artist tends to have her / his own renditions of the classic Soleri standard motifs, so it is interesting to observe the unique creations being made. In the 7/30/08 posting we will continue to explore the foundry work and follow the bell production through to the next stage. [Photo & text: Amber Klatt]
