Brathwaite’s 20 not enough for Daredevils

first_imgMOHALI, India, (CMC): West Indies’ Twenty20 World Cup star Carlos Brathwaite sparkled but for a brief moment as his Delhi Daredevils continued their erratic form in the Indian Premier League to plunge to a nine-run defeat to Kings XI Punjab here yesterday. Chasing 182 at the PCA Stadium, Delhi started well but then faltered to finish on 172 for five, missing the chance to join front-runners Kolkata Knight Riders and Gujarat Lions on 12 points. They now lie third on ten points after losing their fourth game of the season. Brathwaite hit three sixes in his 20. South African opener Quinton de Kock lashed a top score of 52 from 30 deliveries in a 70-run first-wicket stand with Sanju Samson, who made 49. Karun Nair stroked 23, while Brathwaite, batting at number five, smashed a four and a six in scoring 12 from six balls before top-edging a pull at seamer Sandeep Sharma to be caught at midwicket in the 18th over. At that stage, Delhi required 28 runs from the last two overs, but a brilliant penultimate over from medium pacer Mohit Sharma, which cost just three runs, turned the game firmly in Kings XI favour. Wriddhiman Saha and Marcus Stoinis had earlier struck the joint top score of 52 as Kings XI mustered 181 for five after being sent in. Opener Murali Vijay chipped in with 25 from 16 balls. Brathwaite proved expensive as his two overs of medium pace leaked 20 runs.last_img read more

Another Bay Area Town Aims to Go Greener

first_imgA number of California cities, including San Francisco and Berkeley, have adopted relatively aggressive green code to elevate the energy efficiency and sustainability of new construction and remodels above that required by the California Building Standards Code, otherwise known as Title 24.Officials in San Mateo, a suburb south of San Francisco and just a bit north of Silicon Valley proper, say the city is about to join the green group. A recent story in the San Mateo County Times notes that while a sustainability campaign launched last year by the city council – San Mateo Acting Responsibly Together, or SMART – has developed a robust public-outreach program, city officials are now ready to move ahead with two initiatives that will address the nuts of bolts of building performance.Building on SMARTThe first such program will offer residential energy audits subsidized in part by $100,000 in federal stimulus funds. City officials estimate they’ll be able to audit 600 single-family homes through the program, although it’s not yet clear how much of the overall audit fee will be subsidized and how much will be paid by homeowners. (The city’s stimulus grants for green programs total $875,000 and will be largely used to install LED streetlights and part of a PV system on the roof of the public library, according to the SMC Times.)The other SMART initiative will, with eventual approval of the city council, make mandatory the green code that is now voluntary. As currently written, the voluntary code, which went into effect July 1, 2008, follows LEED Silver guidelines for commercial buildings and Build It Green’s GreenPoint Rated guidelines for single-family and multifamily dwellings.The story adds that the new policy, which will use ranking systems that evaluate green building materials and policies, should be ready for the council to approve in October.last_img read more

I know it’s a matter of maturity because in college, you get away with a lot of things. You play with younger guys if you’re the senior. But here, you play against much bigger, stronger, older and more intelligent guys with a lot of experience. So you have to counter that with a lot of things to be able to be efficient with your game,” he said. CPP denies ‘Ka Diego’ arrest caused ‘mass panic’ among S.

‘Proud’ Sablan asks for another season: Tigers will be ready next year

first_imgJapan ex-PM Nakasone who boosted ties with US dies at 101 “I think you will all agree that one year isn’t enough to rebuild a team like this. It would be easier if we had a Kevin Ferrer or an Ed Daquioag, but we don’t. People are expecting us to deliver, but chemistry needs time to jell,” he said.“In a year’s time, those things have to happen with a longer period for us to bond. That’s why I’m saying for next year, give us another year, these guys will be ready.” Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa “We went on a rebuilding process, and the transition these players had to go through with having different coaches wasn’t easy and we had to start it from there. These players, wherever they end up, I know they will be good people. They won’t get into fights and they won’t start fights. That’s the values of UST that was instilled to us, to just play our game. Even though we’re banged up, we won’t retaliate. That’s the lesson I taught them, to be good people.”Sablan shared that he really tried his best to expose his wards to the best competition he can get in preparation for the season, taking UST to different leagues nationwide just for the team to be tested.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“I did my part.

a month agoEx-Newcastle U23 coach Beardsley responds to his football ban

first_imgTagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Ex-Newcastle U23 coach Beardsley responds to his football banby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Newcastle United U23 coach Peter Beardsley has responded to his football ban.The 58-year-old has been suspended from all football-related activity after being found guilty of making racist comments by an independent regulatory commission.Beardsley left his role as Newcastle United Under-23 coach earlier this year following an internal investigation. He has now been banned by the FA until April 29 next year.In a statement released on behalf of Beardsley by the player’s representatives, Farleys Solicitors LLP, the ex-England man said: “Peter Beardsley is very surprised and disappointed by the decision of the Regulatory Commission.”It was almost impossible for Peter to clear his name because of the serious flaws and contamination of evidence that occurred in the Disciplinary process before Newcastle United and by the unusual fact that The FA Rules put the burden of proof on him to prove his innocence in the proceedings.”After a long process which has been unnecessarily protracted, Peter feels vindicated that the Commission has expressly found that he is not a racist.”Peter and his legal advisers have been inundated with support from all over the Country, both from fellow professionals of the highest repute including John Barnes, Kevin Keegan, Les Ferdinand and Andrew Cole, as well as other football professionals including managers, coaches, players, and football fans, all of which provided unchallenged evidence to the Commission as to Peter’s good character, the fact that he is not a racist and whatever was said, there was no intent to cause offence.”Peter has had many great years at Newcastle United and despite the circumstances of his dismissal he will always have the Club close to his heart and wishes the fans the success they deserve in the future. Surprisingly, Newcastle United did not provide the relevant training and education for Peter. Peter has always been willing and eager to attend all and any training organised by the Club. “Peter fully appreciates all the support over what has been a difficult period for him and his family, particularly that of previous manager and colleague Arthur Cox.”Peter has categorically denied the allegations throughout whilst continuing to honour the contractual obligations of confidentiality to Newcastle United and maintaining his silence which in itself has been very difficult.”With no avenue left open to him to clear his name Peter has no choice but to acknowledge the decision and now looks forward to moving on with his life and resuming his career.”He shall respect the sanction imposed and looks forward to returning to work in football, which has been his life, at the end of his suspension.” last_img read more
