We will address their concern by compensating them when we form government in the State,” Mr. Naqvi said, without elaborating in what ways the party will deal with the issue.The Minister said the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government’s performance should not be assessed in the light of the BJP not offering tickets to Muslims.We will take all sections along“The BJP believes in taking along all the sections of the society. We formed government at the Centre with cooperation of all. Similarly, we will form government in the State…,” he said.Home Minister and senior BJP leader Rajnath Singh had on Thursday reportedly said that Muslims should have been given tickets.Water Resources Minister Bharti had echoed his views later.Zilch Muslim candidatesThe BJP has not fielded even a single Muslim candidate in the State, which has sizeable Muslim population and is considered crucial in the country’s electoral politics.The fifth round of polling is under way for 51 assembly constituencies spread across 11 districts of the State.last_img read more

first_imgAlternative NamesDiarrhea and babiesInformationNormal or healthy baby stools are soft and loose. Babies have frequent stools during the first 1 – 2 months. Because of this, it may be difficult to tell when your baby has diarrhea.Most babies have a stool pattern that is typical for them. This pattern may change slowly over time. Look for the following to help decide whether your baby has diarrhea:A sudden increase in how often your baby has stoolsMore than one stool per feedingStools that appear to be more wateryIf your baby is feeding poorly, or has nasal congestion or a fever, the changes you notice are more likely to be diarrhea.Most diarrhea in children is short-lived. It is usually caused by a virus, and goes away on its own. Other causes of diarrhea include:A change in the babys diet or the breast-feeding mothers dietUse of antibiotics by the baby or breast-feeding motherRare diseases such as cystic fibrosisInfants and young children (under age 3) can dehydrate quickly, so they should be watched very carefully. Dehydration means that the body does not have enough water or liquids.Signs of mild dehydration:Dry eyes and crying with few tears or no tearsFewer wet diapers than usualLess active than usual or irritableSlightly dry mouthSigns of moderate dehydration:Dry skin that is not springySluggish or lethargicSunken appearing eyesSigns of severe dehydration:No urine output in 8 hoursSkin that is pinched between fingers fails to spring back to its original shapeSunken fontanelle (the soft spot on top of the head) in infantsVery lethargic or possibly unconsciousHOME CAREadvertisementMake sure the child gets plenty of liquids.If you are nursing, the doctor will probably recommend that you continue nursing. Breast-feeding helps prevent diarrhea, and it also speeds recovery.If your baby still seems thirsty after or between nursing or feeding sessions, you can add an oral rehydration solution, such as Pedialyte. Often, your pediatrician will recommend extra fluids that contain electrolytes. Follow the doctors instructions. Do not use sports drinks for young infants.Talk to your pediatrician right away if there are signs of dehydration. If the infant develops signs of moderate or severe dehydration, he or she should be seen right away.The following can help prevent diaper rash:Air dryingFrequent diaper changesProtective ointments and creams, such as DesitinRinsing the bottom with waterCut down on baby wipes during diarrhea.Call your pediatrician if:A newborn (under 3 months old) has diarrheaDiarrhea contains blood, mucus, or pussFever and diarrhea last for more than 3 daysThe child appears dehydratedThe child has more than 8 stools in 8 hoursThe diarrhea does not go away in older infants or lasts in children for 2 days or longerVomiting continues for more than 24 hoursReferencesCanavan A, Arant BS Jr. Diagnosis and management of dehydration in children.

Report: Girona 1 Real Madrid 4

first_imgReal Madrid benefited from two penalties as they came from behind to beat Girona 4-1 on Sunday, while Gareth Bale maintained his hot goalscoring form.Madrid suffered their first away defeat of the 2017-18 season at Montilivi and it looked set to be another uncomfortable outing when Borja Garcia gave the home side the lead after 16 minutes.But Madrid turned the scoreline on its head with the help of careless tackles from Marc Muniesa and Pere Pons, allowing Sergio Ramos and Karim Benzema to convert a spot-kick apiece either side of the break. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Man Utd ready to spend big on Sancho and Haaland in January Who is Marcus Thuram? Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! Bale added a third in the 59th minute, with Benzema making absolutely sure of the win with a goal that puts Madrid above rivals Barcelona after two matches of the LaLiga campaign.It was Madrid who made the early running, with Benzema finding the net after eight minutes only to be denied by the offside flag.Isco could not sort his feet out in time to apply the finish to a squared Marco Asensio pass and Girona punished the visitors for their profligacy with the opening goal.Anthony Lozano’s shot was blocked in the box but the ball fell kindly for Garcia, who kept his cool to turn onto his right foot and fire high into Keylor Navas’ net.But the home side threw away their advantage six minutes from the break, Muniesa bringing down Asensio – who was running away from goal – inside the penalty area.With Cristiano Ronaldo now gone, spot-kick duties fell to captain Ramos, whose delicate flick down the middle deceived goalkeeper Bono.Madrid had another chance from the spot seven minutes into the second half – this time Benzema scoring from 12 yards out after Asensio was hacked down by Pons.Almost an hour had passed by the time Madrid got their first goal from open play, with Bale slotting beyond Bono to stretch his LaLiga scoring run to a career-best six matches.Benzema’s second of the contest arrived 10 minutes from time to put the result beyond doubt, the French striker tucking home a Bale cross to round off the victory.32 – Karim Benzema has now scored against 32 of the 33 teams he has faced in La Liga (128 goals). Predatory. pic.twitter.com/WufZPIIJQa— OptaJose (@OptaJose) August 26, 2018 What it means: Lopetegui’s Madrid pass test of characterGarcia’s opener led to flashbacks of last season’s 2-1 result between the teams at the same ground, although on that occasion it was Madrid who squandered the early lead. Girona looked bright after going ahead, but the penalties undid their hard work and the hosts tired badly in the latter stages, allowing Bale and Benzema to turn the screw.Pat on the back: Asensio industry brings rewardsAt a time when Madrid were desperately seeking a way back into the match, Asensio was putting himself into dangerous areas and making a nuisance of himself in the opposition box. Those efforts paid off as he twice drew bad tackles to win penalties that paved the way for Madrid to take all three points. Asensio’s distribution was also a constant threat to the Girona defence. A terrific all-round performance.Boot up the backside: Girona pay the penaltyWhen Real Madrid come to town, the last thing you want to do is give them needless opportunities to score. Muniesa and Pons did just that with their penalty-conceding challenges on Asensio. Muniesa’s tackle came with his opponent heading out of the danger zone, while Pons should have cleared before the Madrid attacker had the chance to turn in the box.Key Opta stats:- Gareth Bale scored his 150th goal in his professional club career.- Sergio Ramos has now registered 56 goals in LaLiga, 25 more than any other defender in the 21st century (Andoni Iraola – 31).- Marco Asensio is the first Madrid player to win two penalties in the same LaLiga game since Angel Di Maria against Athletic in April 2011.- Girona have scored more goals against Real Madrid than any other side in LaLiga since the start of last season (six). – Eusebio Sacristan, the Girona manager, has lost his seven league meetings with Real Madrid, scoring five goals while conceding 22.What’s next?Madrid will look to maintain their perfect start at home to Leganes next Saturday, a day after Girona visit Villarreal. read morelast_img read more

‘Competent’ pace battery will bring more overseas success for India: Ian Bishop

first_imgFormer West Indies fast bowler Ian Bishop feels that the current pace attack of the Indian cricket team, which is very competent, will help the team to be more successful in foreign conditions.Bishop was asked about his opinion of the current Indian pace attack, to which he replied, “It’s good, it’s good. Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah – they’re all good,” he told PakPassion.net.”They all bring different skill-sets. Bumrah’s changes of pace and yorkers, Bhuvneshwar swings the ball and he’s had to adapt his game to different pitches and conditions now. He’s put on a little bit of pace too. Shami and Yadav are very sharp and quick. So it’s competent,” he added.The West Indian, who now officiates as cricketer commentator, further asserted that the current pace attack of the Indian team would help them not only to be good at home, where they have ace off-spinner R Ashwin, but to be better overseas too.He also said that the current crop of bowlers in the Indian pace battery is the best he has seen.The Indian pacers have showcased their abilities to swing the ball both ways while generating great pace and have been successful both home and away.Also, newly-appointed Indian head coach Ravi Shastri already suggested that India’s pace battery has the capability to dismantle any batting lineup in any given conditions, which hand the Men in Blue an edge over their competitors in the longest format.last_img read more

NEW YORK — Bruce Arena didn’t have a problem with the recent protests of racial injustice made by pro athletes in American sports, but stated he doesn’t see it becoming an issue with the U.S. national team.The U.S. coach addressed the issue on Tuesday evening at an event previewing Fox Sports’ coverage of the 2018 World Cup, and while he sounded supportive of the decision by athletes from the NFL and other sports to protest, he was less enthusiastic about the idea of U.S. national team players doing the same.”I think the demonstrations by the players are appropriate. I can’t question that,” Arena said. “I don’t want to get into a political debate here. The national team’s different. You don’t have to play in the national team. You can choose not to play.

That’s their jobs. They have to be there. Our guys don’t have to be. We have a policy at U.S. Soccer. that our players respect the national anthem. What more can I say?”The U.S. Soccer Federation raised eyebrows in February when it passed an amendment to its regulations requiring all players to “stand respectfully” when the national anthem is played at games. The amendment read as follows:“All persons representing a Federation national team shall stand respectfully during the playing of national anthems at any event in which the Federation is represented.”The new policy came in the wake of U.S. women’s national team player Megan Rapinoe kneeling during the national anthem before a USWNT friendly last year. She did so after having previously kneeled during the national anthem while playing for her club team, the Seattle Reign.“I think our board feels quite strongly that there is a difference between playing for your club and your country on this issue,” U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati told FourFourTwo last spring. “There is a right to free speech; [Rapinoe] also has the obligations to putting on a national team uniform. And we think those are pretty strong when you’re representing the U.S. national team and wearing the crest.”Gulati has been quoted as saying punishment for violating the national anthem policy would be determined on a case-by-case basis, but Arena didn’t sound like he would be benching any players who chose to take a knee before the U.S. team’s next match: a crucial World Cup qualifier on Oct. 6 against Panama in Orlando.”What do you think I should do? Right then and there take them off the field, burn a few substitutions?” Arena asked on Tuesday. “What happens if four guys take a knee? What do I do?”If we need to discuss it, we’ll discuss it, but I don’t think that’s an issue we’re going to deal with,” Arena said. “We’ve got enough to worry about on Oct. 6 besides kneeling and stuff.”last_img read more

(Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)Urban Meyer is in his second ‘retirement’ as a head coach, but is likely to be a top candidate for every major coaching job for years to come. He was recently asked about his future and had a very interesting response.In an interview with Cleveland.com, Meyer confessed to missing “that fight” that goes into preparing for games.“I’ve been in a fight for 33 years, and now you’re not in that fight… So how do you fulfill that fight? And I feel that every morning. Every morning…”But by the same token, he felt that the “wear and tear” that goes into a season was one of things that prompted him to retire at the end of last season.As for the possibility of answering a phone call from the USC Trojans or another school to take over, he had a surprising answer. He said he isn’t “there at the moment” but says to wait until next year and see how he feels. “I’m not there at the moment… Like you said, next year can I say that? We’ll talk again next year and we’ll see.”It’s clearly not a definitive answer, but it’s also one that may not stop ADs from trying to get in touch with him.Meyer is a proven winner and one of only a handful of college football coaches with multiple national titles.Simply bringing him in has the potential to completely turn a struggling program around.Several coaches have returned to the game after taking a multi-year break in recent years.

After finishing sixth and eighth on the eight-team league table over the last two years, RCB will be hoping for a good start to their IPL 2019 campaign to get their season up and running.However, RCB couldn’t have asked for a sterner test as early as the opener against defending champions, CSK who are returning to their fortress after nearly a year’s gap.CSK’s win percentage against RCB at home: 85.71RCB have the worst record for a visiting team that has played five or more matches at Chepauk. From seven matches, the Kohli-led franchise has managed to win only one, losing six.RCB last won a game at the MA Chidambaram Stadium as early as the inaugural season of IPL in 2008 when an Anil Kumble-led side beat CSK by 14 runs. Since then, RCB have lost six matches on the trot at Chepauk.Also, CSK have won 12 of their last 13 matches played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium since April 22, 2013. Well, Chepauk is certainly a fortress for Dhoni’s men.RCB also are heading into the much-anticipated IPL 2019 opener on the back of a six-match losing streak against CSK. The Bengaluru-based side haven’t beaten Chennai since 2014.advertisementEasy to get overawed by the support CSK gets at home: Virat KohliHowever, Kohli has acknowledged the difficulty of playing CSK at home and even conceded that every team that plays in Chennai against the home team are considered underdogs.”MS knows exactly what he wants from his team in these conditions. We all have seen that and are aware of it. We are going to be backing our skills and then find ways to come out on top,” Kohli said.”It’s very easy to be overawed by the support that CSK are going to get. In the IPL, people can get carried away by the support that a team like CSK gets at home but we have to focus on our basics.”Also Read | I don’t care about being judged for not winning the IPL, says Virat KohliAlso Read | Onus on Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers as RCB seek to end 5-year drought vs CSKAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Despite his rising draft stock, Hooker never considered skipping the Fiesta Bowl.“That was never a thought,” Hooker said at the Indiana Convention Center on Sunday during the NFL combine. “Just because I put too much work in with those guys. It would be like I’m letting them down.”He said the injury hurt, but joked about taking six ibuprofen tablets prior to his team’s bowl game. “As the game went on, it was something that I wasn’t paying attention to. I was just going out there trying to compete and get the win for the team,” Hooker said.Hooker had surgery on Jan. 16 and looks to return for rookie minicamp in July. He did not need to have the procedure done but opted to since he felt he would be fully recovered for rookie minicamp. “I just felt like, in order for me to go out there and compete with the best of the best in the National Football League, I felt like it was what was necessary because I wasn’t 100 percent or nowhere near it. I was probably about 78 percent,” Hooker said.Due to his recent surgery, teams were unable to check on Hooker’s leg. They focused on his upper body instead, according to the safety.Though he said he played through the injuries without much worry, NFL teams might proceed with a much more cautious approach. In ESPN NFL draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr.’s latest mock draft, Hooker is projected at the seventh overall pick. Last year’s seventh pick, San Francisco 49ers defensive end DeForest Buckner, earned a contract guaranteeing him over $18 million.Hooker believes NFL teams should overlook his injury and focus on his play at OSU.“I wouldn’t really pay no mind into that,” Hooker said. “Just simply because the film says what it says.”Hooker isn’t alone at the combine. He, along with seven former teammates including defensive backs Marshon Lattimore and Gareon Conley, are in Indianapolis. But unlike Lattimore and Conley, he will not take part in on-field drills and workouts.With the triumvirate of former starting OSU defensive backs heading to the NFL, three starting spots in the Buckeyes defensive backfield open. Hooker believes the replacements will be special once again next season.“It’s the culture of the program. We build, we reload,” Hooker said.The combine wraps up on Monday as defensive backs, sans Hooker, work out on the field. The 2017 NFL Draft will begin on April 27 in Chicago. read more


Harvey Weinstein pleads not guilty to sexual assault charges as trial delayed

first_img Short URL Weinstein leaving court today A US JUDGE has postponed Harvey Weinstein’s sexual assault trial until next year, after New York prosecutors filed a new indictment that will allow an actress to testify against the fallen movie mogul.Weinstein, 67, pleaded not guilty to charges of predatory sexual assault relating to two women in a fresh indictment amended so that the actress, another of Weinstein’s accusers, can give evidence as a corroborating witness.The indictment is effectively the same as an earlier indictment and the two are likely to be merged eventually.One of the women alleges Weinstein raped her in 2013, while the other claims he forcibly performed oral sex on her in 2006.Documents released after the 15-minute hearing in a New York state court showed that a third women alleges she was sexually assaulted by Weinstein over the winter of 1993-94 in Manhattan.The woman’s name is redacted, but lawyer Gloria Allred said it was her client Annabella Sciorra, known for her appearances in the hit television series The Sopranos.“I commend Annabella for her willingness to take the stand and answer questions under oath,” Allred said in a statement.Sciorra, 59, helped trigger the #MeToo movement in October 2017 when she told The New Yorker magazine that Weinstein raped her at her home in Manhattan in 1993.Weinstein cannot be charged with raping Sciorra because the 25-year statute of limitations has expired.The judge denied a prosecution request that Sciorra be allowed to give evidence at Weinstein’s trial because she had not testified before a grand jury as required under US law.The new indictment will allow her to testify, which could strengthen the prosecution’s case.Judge James Burke postponed the start of the trial to 6 January 2020 to give Weinstein’s defense time to prepare. It had been scheduled to start on 9 September.Trial to be moved?Weinstein, wearing a dark suit, laughed and said “not really” when he was asked by the judge whether he wanted to go to trial.Once one of the most powerful men in Hollywood, Weinstein has been accused of harassment and assault by more than 80 women, including stars such as Angelina Jolie and Ashley Judd.The original accusations against him were a catalyst for America’s #MeToo movement.Weinstein, the co-founder of Miramax, has always insisted his sexual relationships were consensual.The number of accusers appearing in court can influence the verdict, as seen in the 2018 conviction of Bill Cosby.Allred said Sciorra was willing to testify despite anticipating a “vigorous cross-examination by the defense, which no doubt would not be pleasant for any witness to endure”.Weinstein’s lawyers denounced the new indictment as a “desperate” last-minute move and asked for it to be dismissed.“The case itself is weak,” Weinstein’s lawyer Donna Rotunno told reporters outside court.His attorneys have also asked for the trial to be moved, arguing that intense coverage in New York’s tabloids has meant he won’t get a fair trial.An appellate court will likely make a decision later on Monday, but the request is expected to be rejected.© – AFP 2019Comments are closed for legal reasons Aug 26th 2019, 9:43 PM 13,647 Views Weinstein leaving court today Image: Mark Lennihan/PA Images No Comments Share1 Tweet Email center_img Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article By AFP Image: Mark Lennihan/PA Images Monday 26 Aug 2019, 9:43 PM Harvey Weinstein pleads not guilty to sexual assault charges as trial delayed to next year Weinstein laughed and said “not really” when he was asked by the judge whether he wanted to go to trial. https://jrnl.ie/4783336 last_img read more
