Unemployment in Greece spirals to 219 per cent in March as austerity

ATHENS, Greece – Greece’s unemployment shot up to 21.9 per cent in March, rising sharply from the 15.7 per cent rate in the same month last year and up from 21.4 per cent in February, the country’s statistics agency said Thursday.Greece has been struggling through a financial crisis for the past two years, and has been relying on billions of euros in international rescue loans from other eurozone countries and the International Monetary Fund since May 2010. In return, it has made deep spending cuts and imposed major tax hikes, leaving the country mired in a deep recession.The statistics agency said Thursday that unemployment was up 37.8 per cent in March compared with the same month last year. Compared with February 2012, there were 21,625 more people unemployed this March, a 2.1 per cent increase.Young people have been the most affected by the job losses, with more than half — 52.8 per cent — of those in the 15-24 age group out of work in March, compared to 42 per cent in the same month last year.Greece’s financial crisis has also triggered political turmoil. Voters furious at spending cuts that have led to reductions in pensions and salaries and ever increasing taxes punished the two main political parties, the New Democracy conservatives and socialist PASOK, in May 6 elections, turning to smaller and more radical parties on the right and left of the political spectrum.No party won an outright majority on May 6 and coalition talks collapsed after 10 days, forcing the country into new elections on June 17. New Democracy has been running head-to-head with the radical left-wing Syriza party in recent opinion polls. Syrisza has vowed to pull Greece out of its bailout commitments if elected.

Saputo expands Neilson brand chocolate milk recall over Listeria concerns

Saputo expands Neilson brand chocolate milk recall over Listeria concerns by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted Jun 6, 2016 11:30 am MDT Last Updated Jun 6, 2016 at 12:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email MONTREAL – Saputo Inc. has voluntarily expanded the recall of Neilson brand partly skimmed chocolate milk due to possible Listeria contamination.The recall first announced Saturday applied only to four-litre bags of chocolate milk sold in Ontario and Quebec with a June 1 best before date.The recall now includes milk with expiry dates up to June 22 and includes all sizes of Neilson chocolate milk made at its Georgetown, Ont., plant until production stopped late Friday.The move followed a positive test on one of 70 random samples taken by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency at a supermarket.Although no additional samples tested positive, the Montreal-based company said it expanded the recall out of caution.Saputo spokeswoman Sandy Vassiadis says the company is investigating.The production line at the plant has been cleaned and dismantled but it’s unknown when production will resume, Vassiadis said.“It will only reopen when we are satisfied that we found the root cause and that we are ready to reopen,” she said.The agency says there have been reported illnesses that may be associated with the consumption of the product. Vassiadis said further lab testing is underway to confirm the link.Food contaminated with Listeria can cause vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headaches and neck stiffness. read more

UN rushes to deliver aid as key Yemeni port city is shelled

“Dozens of UN staff are in the city helping to deliver food, water and health services,” said Lise Grande, UN Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen, in a statement. “We estimate that 600,000 civilians are in the city – many of whom are dependent on assistance to survive.”According to news reports, the assault on the crucial entry point for most of the war-torn country’s essential food imports, began early on Wednesday, after diplomatic attempts to prevent the Yemeni government forces and their allies from launching the offensive, failed.“Humanitarian partners have been preparing for a possible assault for weeks. Agencies have prepositioned 63,000 metric tonnes of food, tens of thousands of emergency kits, nutrition supplies, water and fuel. Medical teams have been dispatched and humanitarian service points established.”Humanitarian partners have been preparing for a possible assault for weeks – Lise Grande, UN coordinator“Yesterday, even as the city was being shelled and bombarded, an UN-contracted vessel, which is docked at Hodeida port, off-loaded thousands of metric tonnes of food. Two more vessels are making preparations to do the same”, she said.On Thursday, partners have been distributing emergency boxes with food and hygiene supplies to civilians displaced by the fighting, south of the city.Also on Thursday, the Security Council met behind closed doors in emergency session in New York, to discuss the escalating conflict in Hodeida Yemen.Humanitarian agencies and front-line partners already have substantial aid programmes in the city. Every day 50,000 litres of safe drinking water are being distributed and health teams have been helping to halt the spread of cholera and other life-threatening diseases.“Under international humanitarian law, parties to the conflict are obliged to do everything possible to protect civilians and ensure they have access to the assistance they need to survive,” said Ms. Grande.The UN and partners are requesting $3 billion through the 2018 Humanitarian Response Plan to support 22.2 million people in need across Yemen. To date, $1.5 billion, half of resources necessary for the year, has been received.Air strikes can kill many more people over time through famine and hunger – Adama Dieng, UN Special AdviserOn Thursday evening, the UN Special Adviser on the Prevention of Genocide, Adama Dieng, added his grave concern over the pace of events in Hodeida, warning that any closure of the port would have a “disasterous impact on the ability of humanitarian agencies to deliver assistance to a population that desparately needs it.”“Starvation of civilians as a method of war is a war crime and was condemned by the Security Council in resolution 2417 of 24 May 2018” he said in a statement. “It seems that the first test of this resolution is Yemen: the Yemeni port (of Hodeida)  is a lifeline for the delivery of aid and the Coalition’s air strikes can kill many more people over time through famine and hunger when damaging such civilian infrastructure,” added Mr. Dieng. read more

Womens Volleyball No 24 Ohio State splits homeandhome with Notre Dame

The OSU women’s volleyball team celebrates after a win against Michigan State on Oct. 22, 2016. The Buckeyes won the match 3-0. Credit: Luke Swartz | For The LanternNo. 24 Ohio State (5-3) played two matches against Notre Dame this weekend, one at St. John Arena Friday night, then in South Bend, Indiana, on Sunday. Although the Buckeyes beat the Fighting Irish, 3-0, at home, they were not as successful in Notre Dame territory as they dropped the match, 3-1.During Sunday’s loss to Notre Dame, freshman libero Hannah Gruensfelder set an Ohio State record for most digs in a four-set match with 38.In winning the first game of the two-match series, which was scheduled because of the cancellation of the Coastal Carolina Classic due to Hurricane Irma, Ohio State handed Notre Dame its first loss of the season, ending the Fighting Irish’s 6-0 winning streak.“Notre Dame, they’re undefeated for a reason. They’re a very good team.” Carlston said.Ohio State started off its first set Friday evening strong and was able to maintain the lead through most of the set. Its defensive line proved successful in the first set with four blocks and 24 digs.The Buckeyes established their rhythm quickly and won the first set 25-20.The second set was no different for the Buckeyes as they took the lead early once again.Outside hitter Luisa Schirmer and setter Taylor Hughes contributed four kills each, adding to their team’s total of 18 kills and leading Ohio State to a 25-21 victory.The Fighting Irish matched the Buckeyes point for point early in the third set, even taking the lead a 6-4 lead at one point. They stayed neck and neck with the Buckeyes all match long.As tensions rose, Ohio State called a timeout with the scored tied at 23. The Buckeyes were able to pick up the pace and win the set 25-23 with two final kills by Hughes and middle blocker Lauren Witte.Although the Buckeyes won the match 3-0, coach Geoff Carlston thought neither team played as well as they could have.“I have a feeling there are going to be some adjustments by both of us since we play them on Sunday, “ Carlston said. “I would say that was an ugly win, but a win over a really good team.”Outside hitter Ashley Wenz also thought the Buckeyes could have played a stronger game against Notre Dame.“I think that we have a lot that we can work on,” Wenz said. “[We could work on] having better eyes on defense, being able to kind of read the hitters a lot better and play balls that should be easier than they were tonight.”Coming off the 3-0 sweep of the Notre Dame Friday, the Buckeyes said they expected the Fighting Irish to be more difficult to put away in their match Sunday.“Both teams will play harder, it’ll be a lot closer,” Wenz said. “I definitely think they’re going to try and play against our strengths and we’re going to try to do the same.”After a full day of preparation, the Buckeyes traveled to Indiana Sunday for their second match against Notre Dame.Ohio State was able to lead for most of the first set, but Notre Dame came back to take the lead near the end of the set, winning 25-22.The Buckeyes picked up the pace in the second set and played a close game throughout most of the set. Wenz was responsible for nine kills of the set, leading the Buckeyes to a 25-21 victory.Ohio State proceeded to drop its final two sets in convincing fashion, losing the third set 25-14 and dropping the fourth and final set 25-17 to close out the game. Although Ohio State racked up 61 kills and 109 digs, its .141 hitting percentage paled in comparison to the Fighting Irish’s .244 hitting percentage. The Buckeyes will be back at St. John Arena Friday to begin the Buckeye Invitational. They host Western Kentucky at noon and Northern Illinois at 7:30 p.m. On Saturday, they will go against Dayton at Capital Center in Bexley, Ohio. read more

Dominique StraussKahn is not happy with a film based on his sex

first_imgDOMINIQUE STRAUSS-KAHN is to file suit for defamation over a US movie inspired by the sex scandal that brought down the former IMF chief, his lawyer confirmed today.Abel Ferrara’s Welcome to New York stars Gerard Depardieu as a man called Georges Devereaux with striking similarities to “DSK” – whose alleged 2011 sexual assault on a New York hotel maid shook the world.Speaking on Europe 1 radio, Strauss-Kahn’s lawyer Jean Veil said his client would in the coming days “file suit for defamation over the accusations of rape and the insinuations made all throughout the movie”.He said Strauss-Kahn has been cleared of all charges in the case, and was “sickened and frightened by this film”, which premiered at the Cannes film festival on Saturday.Veil described the film as “a piece of shit, dogshit”, and echoed a charge by Strauss-Kahn’s ex-wife Anne Sinclair that aspects of it were “anti-Semitic”.The start of Ferrara’s film states that it is inspired by a court case but it has been widely seen as a fictionalised account of the downfall of DSK.Strauss-Kahn was arrested in May 2011 in New York and forced to live under house arrest for weeks after posting $1 million bail.Criminal charges were eventually dropped and Strauss-Kahn settled a civil suit brought by the maid by paying her undisclosed damages, which reportedly exceeded $1.5 million.Sinclair has accused the movie of portraying her in an anti-Jewish way, through the character of Devereaux’s wife Simone played by Jacqueline Bisset.In the film, Simone is a rich woman who inherited a fortune amassed during World War II and helps the Israeli state financially.Writing in the French Huffington Post, which she edits, Sinclair accused the authors and producers of the film of projecting their “fantasies about money and Jews”, notably in a scene in which Devereaux tells Simone, “Everyone knows what your family did during the war.”“My grandfather (famous art dealer Paul Rosenberg) had to escape from the Nazis and was stripped of his French nationality by the Vichy government,” Sinclair said added, referring to the wartime French regime that collaborated with the Germans.Sinclair said however she would not resort to legal action over what she described as “dirt”.Ferrara refuted the allegations on Sunday, telling AFP he is not “anti-Semitic”.“I hope not. I was brought up by Jewish women,” he said.- © AFP, 2012“Leave me alone!”: Strauss-Kahn says he is facing “media assault”Fizzy drink named after DSK to go on sale in Francelast_img read more

UPDATE BusinessWeek Layoffs Begin

first_imgAnother source told FOLIO: a number of longtime BusinessWeek staffers are expected to volunteer to take severance packages and not accept any offers for continued employment under Bloomberg. Several current BusinessWeek staffers, including John Byrne, have already accepted positions under Bloomberg. They are: publisher Jessica Sibley, marketing head Carl Fischer, finance vice president Tania Secor, executive editor Ellen Pollock and managing editor Ciro Scotti.UPDATE: According to his Twitter feed, BusinessWeek media columnist Jon Fine is among those who weren’t offered new positions.Bloomberg on Tuesday tapped Time magazine deputy managing editor Josh Tyrangiel as editor-in-chief of BusinessWeek, replacing Stephen Adler, who said in October that he’d step down later this year.

Trump Says Hes Canceling UK Visit Citing Bad Deal On New London

first_imgUpdated at 6:55 a.m. ETPresident Trump announced early Friday that he has canceled a trip to the U.K. next month, citing a “bad deal” the Obama administration made for a new U.S. Embassy in London.The president accepted the queen’s invitation for a state visit when he met with Prime Minister Theresa May in July at the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany. The trip had tentatively been planned to begin around the end of February.In a tweet posted just before 1 a.m. on Friday, the president said he had decided against the trip because “I am not a big fan of the Obama Administration having sold perhaps the best located and finest embassy in London for ‘peanuts,’ only to build a new one in an off location for 1.2 billion dollars. Bad deal. Wanted me to cut ribbon-NO!”The move comes weeks after Trump sparked anger in Britain for retweeting incendiary anti-Muslim videos from a far-right U.K. politician.The prime minister said it was “wrong” for the president to have shared the videos first posted by the far-right Britain First Party. London Mayor Sadiq Khan also called out Trump for promoting the “vile, extremist” Britain First, which “exists solely to sow divisions and hatred in our country.”(Since then, May called the U.S. recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital “unhelpful,” a move that reportedly angered Trump.)Last February, the British Parliament took the highly unusual step of debating a nonbinding resolution to rescind an invitation of a state visit to the president after more than 1.8 million U.K. citizens signed a petition to that effect.Only a month ago, the U.S. ambassador to Britain, Woody Johnson, told the BBC, that he “absolutely” expected the president to visit.However, following Trump’s latest tweet, the British newspaper The Independent speculated that the president was “[concerned] about the welcome he would receive in the UK,” and that he was “understood to be sending US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson instead.”The newspaper said the prime minister’s office was aware that the visit had been postponed. The Independent added that Trump “is said to be unhappy about the lack of ‘bells and whistles’ surrounding the event and the fact he would not be able to meet the Queen.”But later on Friday, a spokesman for May said that Trump is welcome despite the cancellation for February. “The invitation has been extended and accepted,” the spokesman said, according to Reuters, adding that no date had been confirmed for the visit. “The U.S. is one of our oldest and most valued allies and our strong and deep partnership will endure.”NPR’s Frank Langfitt, reporting from London, says Trump is still expected to visit in the fall, when he is to meet the queen.As for the president’s tweet condemning the Obama administration for a “bad” deal on the new U.S. diplomatic compound in London, the U.S. Embassy’s own website indicates that the announcement of the move was made in the final weeks of President George W. Bush’s administration. Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit Sharelast_img read more

The new PACS (picture archive and communication system) platform was designed to be fully Web-based on any device with any operating system, and increase the speed and tool set from which radiologists and referring physicians are able to access radiology exams. Exa PACS was demonstrated during the Radiological Society of North America’s (RSNA’s) 100th annual Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting in Chicago.Key features and benefits of the Exa PACS include the following:Zero footprint viewing – Regardless of location, radiologists and referring physicians will benefit from the pending zero footprint, diagnostic- quality viewing for any modality. There are no plug-ins required, no limitations, and full functionality is available regardless of operating system or age of the computer. Additionally, a fully integrated dictation module is seamlessly enabled.  Server-side rendering – Image download time is enhanced, particularly for mammography, positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET CT), 3-D and other large image files, especially in multi-site or distributed environments. Server-side rendering also helps to extend the life of older workstations with less processing capability.Automatic anatomical linking of all priors – Radiologists can save precious time and be assured of accuracy with the ability to automatically cross-link and synchronize CT priors. Guesswork and human error is eliminated. For any CT study, such as when viewing critical pathology like the size of cancerous nodules, the software automatically anatomically indexes all priors – regardless if there is one or are five or more. Fast, accurate viewing can be relied upon.

Why Rental Activity Remains A Bright Spot for Housing

first_img Share Why Rental Activity Remains ‘A Bright Spot’ for Housing While the lights of the housing market continue to flicker, rental market activity has been a bright spot, said “”Freddie Mac’s””: U.S. Economic and Housing Market Outlook for June.[IMAGE]The enterprise’s report, released Tuesday, showed that newly formed households seem more interested in renting over owning as the economy struggles to get back on its feet. Freddie Mac expects this trend to continue for the near future.””Further increases in rental demand are likely in the coming year as newly formed households postpone homeownership decisions until the economy strengthens and they have accumulated sufficient savings,”” said “”Frank Nothaft””:, VP and chief economist for Freddie Mac. “”Overall apartment market trends may show further vacancy declines and rent gains, with property values improving as well.”” The report showed that over the year ending March 2012, an additional 1.5 million households moved into rental housing, a 4 percent increase in a year. [COLUMN_BREAK]The Census Bureau has also reported that rental vacancy rates in buildings with at least five apartments have dropped more than two percentage points over the past two years. In addition, both Reis and Axiometrics have reported increases in occupancy rates during the two years through the first quarter of 2012.Rents have begun to rise in a number of metropolitan areas as rental markets tighten. A broad market measure prepared by the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows a rent increase of 2.5 percent during Q1 2012 compared to a year ago. Reis found a 2.8 percent gain in its markets during the same period, while Axiometrics reported a 4 percent rise in nominal rents. However, average rent adjusted for inflation stayed below where it was for most of the decade prior to the Great Recession.The increase in rental demand has helped enhance property values, on average up about 25 percent during the past two years from the low during Q1 2010. This level is still 14 percent below the pre-Great Recession peak, but the increase has prompted a supply response from developers. Starts of buildings with at least five apartments have increased 48 percent in the first five months of 2012 when compared to the same period in 2011. The National Association of Home Builders reported that its Multifamily Production Index jumped to its highest reading since 2005, and its index for market-rate rental construction reached its highest level since the series’ start eight years ago. Construction of rental apartments in buildings containing at least five dwellings is expected to add nearly 200,000 in 2012, the highest increase in one year since 2008.

weapons class before the state’s new permitless carry law takes effect Tuesday Aug 1The so-called "constitutional carry" bill sailed through the Republican-controlled Legislature this year with less than two dozen dissenting votes And with the stroke of Gov Doug Burgum’s pen North Dakota joined a growing list of states that allow law-abiding people to carry a concealed firearm without a permitWhile proponents say the legislation helps uphold gun rights enshrined in the Constitution and doesn’t turn its adoptive states into the "Wild West" some worry that loosening requirements will endanger the public"I think it’s going to create a lot of issues for law enforcement" Grand Forks County Sheriff Bob Rost said "There’s going to be people carrying who shouldn’t be carrying because there’s no background (check) or anything done on them There’s going to be people shooting firearms who don’t know how to shoot them"It’s unclear how many people will take advantage of the new law There were 48700 active North Dakota concealed weapons licenses as of Dec 31 and the state Bureau of Criminal Investigation issued 12246 licenses last year"I’m sure there will be" more people carrying concealed weapons said Bismarck Republican Rep Rick Becker the bill’s primary sponsor "I don’t think it’s going to be a dramatic increase but it’ll be some And it won’t change anything about how we go about our business in North Dakota"’A right and a responsibility’North Dakota offers two classes of concealed weapons licenses that will remain in place after Tuesday A Class 1 permit includes more training requirements but has reciprocity with more states than the Class 2 license A criminal background check is conducted on every new and renewal applicant according to the attorney general’s officeThe new "constitutional carry" provisions only apply within the state’s borders and to North Dakotans who are at least 18 years old and have been a resident of the state for one year People carrying under the new law can’t be prohibited by state or federal law from possessing a firearm and must inform law enforcement that they have a gun when they have "any in-person contact" with an officer according to the attorney general’s office Twelve states including North Dakota allow permitless carry while Montana allows it in areas outside of city limits according to the National Rifle Association The proliferation of such laws has accelerated in the past two years with eight states enacting permitless carry since April 2015That trend appears to go against public opinionEighty-one percent of Americans are opposed to allowing people to carry concealed guns without a permit according to a recent Pew Research Center poll Two-thirds strongly oppose the ideaSouth Dakota Gov Dennis Daugaard a Republican vetoed a permitless carry bill in March Arguing that existing laws were effective in "screening people who are not eligible to carry a concealed weapon" he said the state’s two most populous counties turned down almost 600 permit applicants over the last three years because of mental illness or criminal historyLess than a week later Burgum signed House Bill 1169 The first-term Republican governor noted the existing Class 2 license requirements don’t include firearms training but rather just an open-book testBurgum who had a Class 1 license as of March still encouraged those considering carrying a concealed weapon to enroll in a gun safety course"Gun ownership is both a right and a responsibility and that responsibility begins with individuals and families" Burgum said in a statement after signing the billStill Burgum asked lawmakers and law enforcement to "closely monitor this new law with a continual focus on public safety" The governor’s office said Burgum wasn’t available for an interviewBismarck Rep Vernon Laning one of only two House Republicans to vote against the bill said he’s surprised to see how many people come into the

in America joined the group out of general concern for her son’s safety She said she’s not against guns but she worries the change will make it easier for "unvetted people" to carry a concealed weapon Proponents meanwhile argue that criminals will ignore the licensure requirements anyway"It’s taking away all of our safety nets" Lee said "There will always be people who break the law but we have laws in place to protect us and keep us safe"Chris Kopacki state liaison for the NRA said the law doesn’t change the eligibility requirements for carrying a weapon and the attorney general’s office said restrictions on places a firearm may be carried still apply Responding to a common argument from opponents Kopacki drew a distinction between requiring a license to drive a car and the constitutional right to bear armsStill Kopacki said the organization encourages firearms training"We definitely don’t advocate for anything less than responsible carry" he said "But we definitely don’t think that law-abiding individuals with no proven history should be penalized and have to pay to use a constitutional right"Josette Severson said the new law could be a "great thing . as long as citizens take it seriously and responsibly" by training with a firearm and maintaining proficiency In a small classroom next to the indoor range she demonstrated how to safely handle a firearm from properly gripping a handgun to the importance of breathing while shooting"I wish that people still had to take some type of a safety training" Severson said "There’s so much more that happens behind

will be heading into the final match in Chennai brimming with confidence I love discussing cricket with just about anybody but I always find a sensible contrarian view the most engaging At times you get a better insight into the game by listening to the game’s detractors instead of its fans One view that I often hear from such people is that cricket as a sport is too complex to follow and has too many laws that are hard to understand What makes matters worse is that the laws of cricket are in a constant state of flux It’s common to find a cricket fan who watches all the games but doesn’t understand all the laws or the changes they go through Heck even international cricketers often admit complete ignorance of laws most recent being the case of Peter Handscomb whose “unawareness” of the DRS (Decision Review System) laws lead to the term "brain fade" trending on social media for several days I don’t know what ICC should have done about Steve Smith’s gesture towards the dressing room and Virat Kohli’s allegations in the press but admitting to not knowing a basic law of the game before playing it at the highest level should get the player a match ban Virat Kohli celebrates with teammates after the dismissal of Steve Smith during the second Test AFP Cricket’s lawmakers have long had this habit of doing a half-baked job of a new rule It seems they discuss something over a table and just impose it at the international level without thinking it through; the super sub rule being a classic case in point With some laws the problem is not just lack of cricketing sense but a lack of common sense in formulating them in a way that can be enforced by match officials The ball-tampering laws fall under this category where the umpires are somehow expected to know the exact chemical composition of the saliva that players are using to shine the ball and the brand of candy and face cream they used in the dressing room But perhaps no other system that has had so many flaws over the years gets strong backing and support as the DRS When it was introduced in 2008 on India’s tour to Sri Lanka it was so badly spelt out and left so much to interpretation that it scarred the Indian players who participated in the series India didn’t go back to accepting the system again until almost everyone who played that series retired from the game The rules of DRS get changed more frequently and more arbitrarily than a TV reality show Last year Mahela Jayawardena gave us an insight into how well thought out the rules of DRS are when he said "We sat in the cricket committee last week and we decided that the 50 percent rule should be reduced to 25 percent Yes a committee of ex-cricketers just “sat down” and “decided” because they “felt” it’s the right thing to do It took studies from biomechanists to decide the degree of tolerance for an elbow flex allowed for bowlers Similarly we need to have more qualified scientists on that table than ex-cricketers to decide the accuracy of ball-tracking technology There should be independent open studies to find out the mean percentage error and a tolerance level should be set based on that instead of any hunch or expert judgement To think that only ex-cricketers can sit down and devise all the laws is as absurd as suggesting that only ex-cricketers have the authority to write or speak about the game (but it’s going to continue anyhow) Scientists lawyers media can all help make better laws but for that to happen the ICC needs to become “Inclusive Cricket Council” first instead of running like a private club as it does now A saner DRS requires more than a few discussions over the table it needs rigorous analysis spread out over months Let’s look at some of the reforms that fans and players have been more vocal about The DRS gets a lot of slack for the “umpire’s call” part Many feel that the system should give an absolute call irrespective of what the on-field umpires think The umpire’s call to my mind is a fair system to have at the moment as it still respects the position of umpire’s view in the game something that is central to the game’s underlying philosophy We still trust umpires to run the game and make reasonable judgements The idea behind DRS always was and still is to eliminate “howlers” from the game instead of picking on the small mistakes of umpires After the recent spat between Kohli and Smith signalling at the dressing room for help on DRS has become a big issue One way to resolve this is to give the players less time say only five seconds to decide whether they want a review The batsman always knows if he has hit the ball the non-striker can give a quick signal on where he thinks the ball pitched and where he thinks it is headed and a decision can be made whether or not to go for the review Or to make things even simpler we can even consider the option of not restricting dressing room signals at all as long as the player’s teammates in the dressing room haven’t seen a replay Commentators often have little clue about matters without the benefit of slow-motion replays players can’t be much better Trust your dressing room at your own risk The fielding side has a captain on the field who takes the call on what to review a batsman is his own captain and that leads to a situation where one is not sure about taking the review especially in the case of an LBW A bungled up marginal review then spoils the whole game plan for the rest of the innings This happened recently at Bangalore when David Warner used up one review and Australia were too cautious to use it for Shaun Marsh During the Bangalore test match Harsha Bhogle tweeted about the tedious task of the non-striker when DRS is in use I greatly fear with these referrals that there is too much pressure on the non-striker to play umpire — Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) March 7 2017 On a tough pitch when batsmen are grinding it out the additional pressure of getting a review right puts them under immense stress Earlier batting coaches used to advise players that they should try to get a single and take stock at the non-striker end but it’s impossible now as a batsman can’t switch off even as a non-striker One way of making matters easier for the batsman and the non-striker is to possibly review every “out” decision that the umpire gives in a Test match The fielding side should continue to get only on-demand reviews just like the current system Yes a lot of time will be wasted but it will give the two batsmen in the middle some much-needed respite Plenty of batsmen have already said that they prefer to just bat and let umpire do his job The third umpires as it is review a lot of no-balls these days after a batsman is given out They may as well go the full distance and review everything If we can reduce the turnaround time for a referral then those extra reviews aren’t going to cost as much The third umpire can immediately spring into action as soon as a batsman is given out ICC on their part should have trained specialist third umpires instead of letting on-field umpires double up as one Understanding camera angles and technology is a different beast from taking charge of the game on the field The specialist third umpire’s room should be equipped with better technology than just one LCD screen He should get a simultaneous feed from several angles on different screens that he can play and pause himself as many times he wants This alone will save several precious seconds wasted on reviews Of course the ICC will need to exhibit a lot more will and common sense over the years for all of this to happen If they want an easy way then may I suggest them to just hand it over to the greatest DRS judge of them all MS Dhoni He can be paid to watch every game on the planet on his TV screen and tweet whenever he thinks the third umpire needs to called upon Mills, download Indian Express App ? composers and singers have made Punjabi music industry a
