Former Australia captain Steve Waugh believes that his country has the best phasing out policy for the biggest names unlike the sub-continent where it becomes difficult to move on once players attain legendary status.Waugh was asked the question in context of the debate surrounding Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s future in international cricket after India’s semi-final exit from the World Cup.”It’s interesting. Australia definitely do that. It doesn’t matter who you are because you have got to move on,” Waugh told PTI when asked about Cricket Australia’s retirement policy and his own exit from international scene in early 2004.But Waugh, one of Australia’s most successful skippers, feels that it won’t be correct to equate Australia’s situation with India.”Maybe in the sub-continent you get a bit more leeway with 1.4 billion people following you. People no longer remain people. They become legends, Gods. It’s very hard to move on,” he said.”It becomes increasingly challenging when people get to a certain age. Mahendra Singh Dhoni you are referring to is still a great player,” said Waugh.The World Cup-winning former captain is, however, happy with Australia’s overall performance considering where they were 12 months back.”I think it’s a fair comment that Australia have done well in the World Cup compared to where they were 12 months ago,” he said on his country’s defeat against England at Edgbaston on Thursday.”Once they got to the semi-finals, there were high expectations. They might be disappointed this morning but overall I think Aaron Finch did great job as captain as well as a player,” Waugh, who is a brand ambassador of ICC’s community cricket tournament called Criiio.advertisementTalking about the initiative, he said, “I think it’s a great initiative and it is what sport is all about. It’s about sports at grassroot level and people enjoying it. Learning about sportsman spirit.”Asked to whom he would put his money in Sunday’s final between England and New Zealand at the Lord’s, he replied: “I don’t put money on sport. I expect a great final as New Zealand has been playing well. They have now reached two finals. So I expect a good match.Also Read | Rashid Khan appointed Afghanistan captain in all formatsAlso Read | New Zealand will be a difficult side to beat: Eoin Morgan ahead of World Cup 2019 finalAlso See:
Real Madrid 2 Fuenlabrada 2 (4-2 agg): Returning Bale key as Zidane’s men progress Jamie Smith 06:20 11/29/17 Getty Images Zinedine Zidane named the youngest team of his Real Madrid reign, but it was a returning Gareth Bale who helped them past Fuenlabrada. Gareth Bale provided a superb assist on his return from injury as Real Madrid battled to a 2-2 draw against Fuenlabrada on Tuesday, Zinedine Zidane’s men progressing to the last 16 of the Copa Del Rey 4-2 on aggregate.Controversial penalties from Marco Asensio and Lucas Vazquez had given Madrid enough of an advantage from the first leg that Zidane named a team with an average age of 22 years and 156 days, the youngest XI he had picked at the club.Fuenlabrada were given hope by the inexperienced team named by the Frenchman and the Segunda B side – who held Madrid’s reserves Castilla 0-0 on Saturday – took a deserved lead against their under-strength neighbours.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Luis Milla’s rocket from 25 yards was tipped on to the crossbar by fit-again goalkeeper Keylor Navas, the ball ricocheting off the Costa Rica international and into his own goal.With Madrid unable to break down Fuenlabrada, Zidane brought on Bale after half-time and seconds after his introduction, with his first touch, the winger crossed for Borja Mayoral to head in his second goal of the season – immediately relieving any tension inside the Santiago Bernabeu.And Bale and Mayoral teamed up again to settle the tie, the Welshman’s initial effort saved by Pol Freixanet only for the young striker to keep his composure and slot in from close range.Despite guaranteeing their progression Madrid were unable to hold on to victory on the night, though, as Alvaro Portilla secured a memorable draw for the visitors late on. ¡Siempre con el equipo!Always with the team!#HalaMadrid pic.twitter.com/17T05SkVIY— Sergio Ramos (@SergioRamos) November 28, 2017Fuenlabrada had a huge chance to reduce the first-leg deficit in just the fourth minute, Matheus Aias spinning away from a throw-in to pull back a low cross for Hugo Fraile, who should have scored but drilled his shot wide of the post.And the visitors’ bright start continued as Aias beat the offside trap to burst into the box only to fire straight at Navas, the Madrid goalkeeper making his first appearance since October.A callow Madrid were struggling to exert any pressure on the third-tier side and, incredibly, Fuenlabrada took the lead after 25 minutes.A corner was cleared to Milla and with no Madrid players closing him down the midfielder let fly with a thumping 25-yard drive that hit the crossbar and deflected in off an unfortunate Navas.Marcos Llorente slammed a rebound over the crossbar and Freixanet was then tested for the first time, diving to his left to palm away a curling strike from Mayoral.After the interval, Fraile free-kicks created headed chances for Aias and Cata Diaz, the latter seeing his effort crash against the crossbar, prompting a worried Zidane to send for Bale just after the hour.1 – Gareth Bale has assisted in his first touch of the game against Fuenlabrada.

Now you’ll write some good things I hope: Rohit Sharma’s plea to media after Ranchi epicRohit Sharma has donned the role of India Test opener with aplomb going on to hit 527 runs in the ongoing Freedom Series vs South Africa with his latest knock of 212 in Ranchi putting India on course of a 3-0 win.advertisement Next India Today Web Desk RanchiOctober 20, 2019UPDATED: October 20, 2019 20:03 IST Rohit soaks in the applause after crossing 200 in Ranchi (AP)HIGHLIGHTSRohit Sharma hit 212 in Ranchi on Sunday212 is now Rohit’s highest score in TestsRohit has now scored 527 runs across 4 innings in his maiden series as a Test openerNew India opener Rohit Sharma, who hit his maiden double hundred in Tests on Sunday in Ranchi has conceded that he wanted ‘to use the opportunity (to open the innings) to full’ at the end of the 2nd day’s play. Rohit, who has already scored 527 runs in the ongoing Freedom Trophy, was pushed up the order by the Indian team management just before the series started. The result – 2 hundreds and a double in 4 innings – has Rohit and his team elated.”Wanted to use the opportunity to full. Otherwise, a lot would have been said and written (about my Test career). You folks write a lot about me. Now you will write some good things I hope,” Rohit told reporters after Day 2 in Ranchi.”It was a good opportunity for me to open the batting. As I said during the Vizag Test, the communication between me and my team management was happening for a long time about opening the batting. So mentally, I was ready for it. I knew it could come at anytime.”His double century came after India were left reeling at 39/3 in the first morning as he along with Ajinkya Rahane (115) staged a remarkable turnaround with a mammoth 267-run fourth wickekt partnership, the highest versus South Africa.But no matter how good Rohit has looked batting all series, it hasn’t been easy for him – especially at the start when the new ball has done tricks. In Ranchi for instance, while Kagiso Rabada and Co. dented India’s start removing Mayank Agarwal, Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli in quick succession, Rohit sensed the danger early and tried to play as close to his body as possible and leaving balls wide outside off-stump.advertisementAnother classic from yet another Rohit Sharma press conference #TeamIndia #INDvSA @Paytm pic.twitter.com/XzZV9EpkxA BCCI (@BCCI) October 20, 2019The opener reiterated his mindset when he was asked by reporters how his experience so far at the top of the innings has been.”Speaking of this particular knock, I would say it was most challenging. I have not played much. I played only 30 Tests. In terms of what was thrown at me, I would definitely say it was probably the most challenging one,” the talented Mumbaikar said.”New ball does something. In Pune and here (Ranchi), it was tough in the morning. Rabada spell was quite challenging. But conditions overseas will be different. Not reading too much right now, waiting for the overseas challenge as an opener,” said Sharma.Rohit Sharma became only the 5th Indian opener after Vinoo Mankad, Budhi Kunderan, Sunil Gavaskar and Virender Sehwag to score 500-plus in a Test series. Notably, Gavaskar had done so 5 times in his Test career and Sehwag was the last Indian before Rohit to achieve the feat. Sehwag had hit 544 runs against Pakistan in a 3-Test series at home in 2005.Also Read | Ranchi Test, Day 2: Pacers jolt South Africa after Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane make merryAlso Read | India vs South Africa: Umesh Yadav breaks 15-year-old world record in 10 ballsFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Thanks to the generosity of corporate citizens, about $115,000 in cash and oil is on its way to the Salvation Army to help an additional 450 families stay warm this winter. This follows government’s announcement last week of a $200,000 donation to the Salvation Army. Nova Scotia Power and members of the Canadian Oil Heat Association — Irving Oil, Bluewave Energy, Ultramar, Superline Fuels and Wilson’s Fuels — have all stepped up to provide assistance to the Salvation Army for home energy. In many cases, this is in addition to earlier donations to programs administered by the Salvation Army. In recognizing the co-ordinated efforts of this sector, Premier Rodney MacDonald said the extra help is warmly welcomed. “We are facing extraordinary circumstances this winter and I want to thank our corporate citizens for stepping up and helping in our community in this time of need,” said Premier MacDonald. “This will make a great difference to families struggling to stay warm. “I applaud your generosity and kindness to the people of Nova Scotia.” Two Salvation Army-administered programs will benefit from the donations — the Good Neighbour Program and the Share the Fuel Program. The Good Neighbour Program was established in 1997 by employees of Nova Scotia Power. This year, Nova Scotia Power has already pledged a donation of $100,000, in addition to the more than $45,000 in customer and employee donations. In response to community need, Nova Scotia Power has increased its donation to $150,000. “Nova Scotia Power’s employees and customers, and the company, are proud to have initiated and supported the Good Neighbour Energy Fund for over a decade,” said Rob Bennett, executive vice-president of revenue and sustainability for Nova Scotia Power. “We are very pleased to respond to the need this year and we congratulate the government and other companies for helping to meet the need.” Johnny Grant, operations manager of Irving Oil’s residential andcommercial energy business in Atlantic Canada, presented the Salvation Army with a cheque for $30,000. “We’re very proud of the relationship we have with Nova Scotia, which goes back 80 years,” said Mr. Grant. “We understand the challenges many people face during home-heating seasonand we wanted to help. We hope this donation will help make life a little easier for the people of Nova Scotia in the months ahead.” The Share the Fuel Program has received donations from members of the Canadian Oil Heat Association for many years. This year, through the extra efforts of Bluewave Energy, Wilson’s Fuels, Ultramar and Superline Fuels, the donation has doubled to more than 70,000 litres from 35,000 litres. “The oil industry to pleased to be able to offer additional relief,” said Canadian Oil Heat Association Nova Scotia Chapter president Dave Graham. “We recognize that this is a tough winter for many and are pleased to be able to make a sizable increase to our annual donation to the Salvation Army’s Share the Fuel Program.” The Salvation Army, which designates the distribution of product across the province, based on a needs assessment and other criteria, is pleased with the course of events over the past week. “The Salvation Army is honoured to be the partner through which this assistance will reach those in desperate need this winter season,” said Diane van der Horden, director of public relations for the Maritime Salvation Army. “The Salvation Army is accessible throughout the province and we welcome the opportunity to be the means of this practical support.” Premier MacDonald said he was impressed by how government and corporations came together to help those in need. “Through help from government and the generosity of our corporate citizens, the Salvation Army can now help about 1,250 more families than they could one week ago,” said the premier. “This is proof that we’re all stronger when the community comes together to help each other. I encourage others to come to the aid of our neighbours who are struggling to stay warm this winter.” The province is also working on a long-term solution to address the impact of the rising cost of oil. Part of the solution will involve its poverty strategy, conservation efforts, and working with community groups, businesses and individuals.
NEWMARKET, Ont. – Police north of Toronto are praising a four-year-old girl who called 911 when her babysitter fell into a backyard pool Friday afternoon.York Regional Police say the 20-year-old woman, whose name hasn’t been given, was pulled from the swimming pool unresponsive, and remains in hospital in life-threatening condition.Insp. Russ Bellman said the girl called 911 just before 5 p.m., after her babysitter accidentally fell into the deep end of the in-ground swimming pool in Newmarket, Ont.He said paramedics, police and fire services responded to the call, and conducted CPR on the woman before taking her to hospital.Investigators say the incident isn’t considered suspicious, and the child was not injured.“She’s a pretty sharp four-year-old,” Bellman said.“It just demonstrates how important it is to teach your kids — even at a young age — recognizing an emergency, knowing when and when not to call 911. And in this case obviously she recognized the emergency and knew enough to call 911.”
TORONTO – Toronto police will be reviewing how officers handle missing persons cases, the force’s chief announced Friday as officers worked to address concerns around deaths and disappearances being investigated around the city’s gay village.Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders said the cases are an opportunity for an “open and candid” look at police procedures to ensure best practices are being followed.“I’ve asked professional standards to conduct an investigation to look at the gaps and issues — if there are gaps and issues — when it comes to how we do missing person investigations, to find out who received what information what was done with that info who was the info shared with,” Saunders said.The internal review is expected to help determine if police practices and training around missing persons cases need to be changed, Saunders said.The probe was announced as investigators provided updates on three separate investigations that have links to the city’s gay village — the homicide case of 22-year-old Tess Richey, the death of a transgender woman named Alloura Wells and the disappearances of two men, Selim Esen and Andrew Kinsman.Police said the investigations are not related and emphasized that there is no evidence a serial killer is involved.Richey was reported missing on Nov. 25 and was last seen early that morning outside an empty building near Church and Wellesley Streets — the core of the city’s gay village — with a man she and her friend had met after a night out. Her body was found four days later in an outdoor stairwell leading to the basement of the empty building.Police are searching for the man who was with Richey that night and consider him to be a suspect. In addition to Richey’s case being investigated as a homicide, the force’s Professional Standard’s Unit is also reviewing the conduct of officers who investigated her disappearance.Richey’s death was the latest in a series of police investigations related to the neighbourhood.Wells, a transgender woman reported missing by her family, was found dead near a tent in a nearby ravine in August, but her body was not identified until November, Det.-Sgt. Dan Sabadics said.Investigators found nothing at the scene to suggest foul play, Sabadics. An autopsy ruled her cause of death was “undetermined,” he added.Officers also worked Friday to dispel some of the rumours surrounding the case of Esen and Kinsman, who were reported missing from the Church and Wellesley area at separate times earlier this year.Investigators working on the two missing persons cases, nicknamed Project Prism, have no reason to believe the missing men are dead, though police have not ruled the possibility out, Det.-Sgt. Michael Richmond said.Nor is there reason to believe that the disappearances have anything to do with a serial killer, or predators targeting men through a dating app, Richards added.Information from a separate investigation into the disappearances of three other men who vanished from the same area between 2010 and 2012 is being shared with Project Prism, Richmond added, noting, however, that there’s no reason to believe any of the five disappearances are connected.
Editor’s note: The story below contains some graphic descriptions of sexual abuse. Reader discretion is advised.Chris StewartAPTN InvestigatesThe Alberta government is in court fighting a claim for compensation brought forward on behalf of thousands of mostly Indigenous people who claim they were abused either sexually, physically or emotionally while under the protection of Child Services.People like Steven Morin and Clinton John Marty.(Steven Morin talking to APTN Investigates Journalist Chris Stewart about his abuse while in foster care)Morin says that while it’s not easy, he is telling his story in hopes that he can prevent more instances of abuse in the future.He was just five years old when his foster mother’s boyfriend began sexually assaulting him. The abuse continued for five years. He says he was assaulted almost every week.(A young Steven Morin in happier times)He started misbehaving and was taken out of the home.But not before he was threatened by his long time assailant.“The last time I seen him in person, he told me in the shower as he was doing his last . . . his last . . . whatever you want to call it on me. After he was done, he told me. This will be forever engraved into my memory. And I quote, “If you ever tell anyone about the things I have done to you . . . I will find you and I will kill you,” Morin told APTN Investigates.He says he told a group home about the abuse when he was 12 years old.“They ended up getting some investigators. Nothing was done about it. It was a waste of time.”Morin left the child welfare system at age 16. He couch surfed on his home territory, Enoch Cree Nation, just West of Edmonton.One day he saw the face of the man in the newspaper and on the local news. John Edward Beaver was wanted in connection with over a dozen charges of sexual assault.“I don’t know why I couldn’t look away from his photo. I had to look at his photo. I still don’t know why I had to look at his photo. And I remember waiting the next day. Did they find him yet? I remember on the fifth or sixth day, they ended up finding him. I was like ‘wow!’ The relief . . .” Morin recalled.John Edward Beaver was charged with more than a dozen counts of sexual assault. But he would never stand trial for those charges. He died in his sleep in 2014.(John Edward Beaver died before facing over a dozen sexual assault charges, including sexually assaulting Steven Morin)Court records show a conviction for child pornography where he was sentenced to six months prison in 1999. With that conviction, he should have not been allowed to be in the same house with a five-year-old.Morin received a $35,000 dollar injury claim from an Alberta government fund for victims of crime. He says he was too young and foolish when he received the money. One month later, it was all gone.He spent it on alcohol and hard drugs to help numb the pain.“In 2015, I really fell off and I went straight downhill. I went through a really bad breakup and I started using more than just cocaine. I was using meth. I was using heroin. Smoking it. I was drinking.”Clinton John Marty lives with his wife on the Elizabeth Metis Settlement, south of Cold Lake, Alberta.He and his brother were put into a Catholic home in Edmonton.“At eight years old there was a sister there. I’m not going to name her name. She might still be alive today. She did select some of the older boys to come into her room. And there they would select a little boy to go in and have oral sex with them. And once we were done, we were brought back to our bed, and told not to say anything,” Marty said.(Clinton Marty says he was sexually abused while in a Catholic Home. He says the child welfare system failed him.)He said he reported the abuse to the social workers there. But, he added, “nine of out ten times, you were labelled as a troubled kid if you talked about it.”Marty says his own father abused him and his mother informed Alberta Child Protection not to give Marty and his brother to their father. They did anyway.“Child welfare placed us, not once but twice. And he abused us sexually, physically, and very emotionally. And he was charged for that. And he never faced the charges because he committed suicide so he didn’t have to. So we lived with that as well.”When Marty was 12 years old, he and his brother were given back to their mother. That is very rare in cases where the government has a permanent guardianship order.The two brothers began to fight.“We were both very violent towards each other because of the way things were in the homes. And I had kicked my brother in the side of my head. My Mother screams out, ‘Oh my God, What has happened to my boys?’ And I can remember clear as day looking at her and saying those boys are gone a long time ago. This is what they created,” he said.(A young Clinton John Marty)Like Steven Morin, Clinton John Marty was changed forever. Marty can’t hold down a job. He only completed Grade 5. He has nightmares. He was diagnosed with Severe Childhood Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.“There are nights where I sleep two-and-a-half hours a night. When I close my eyes, it’s flashbacks. It’s nightmares. I’m unreliable. Without my wife, who has looked after me for all these years, I probably would have been dead a long time ago,” Marty told APTN Investigates.Lawyer Robert Lee has two class action lawsuits ongoing against the province of Alberta.He has been working to get compensation for victims of the child welfare system for 20 years.“They shouldn’t be living in poverty,” Lee said. “They shouldn’t be living in circumstances where they have to choose between paying rent instead of buying food.”Steven Morin has not yet joined in one of the class actions but he is considering suing the Alberta government. He has talked to Lee several times.“As a five to nine year old, and so he told the child welfare system, this horrible thing, the most horrible thing that could happen to a child, has happened to me. And he gets no help. He goes to the system that put him there and says, you did this to me. Now help me. I’m broken. Now fix me. And they do nothing,” the lawyer said.Lee said the provincial government is fighting him every step of the way.“And what I thought would take six months is going to take two years. And so my clients can’t afford to pay a lawyer. I can’t afford to work for free. And that is the dilemma. If you want to go through our legal system, you better have money. And so if you don’t have money to pay for a lawyer, you are just out of luck. And that is wrong.”Clinton Marty has not had an easy life. But he and his wife have raised four children. He says he quit drinking when they were young. He wanted to be a better parent than his were.“To know that I’ve been with the same woman since I’ve been 16 years old. And that we made a beautiful family together, in spite of everything. I know I’ve set my children up to never ever have to experience what I’ve been through. To let them know the things I went through. I could have brought that upon them. But I didn’t. And I did it for my family, and to make sure the cycle breaks. You can’t have a repetitive cycle of abuse. Alcoholism, drug addiction. It can’t continue. Someone has to be the one to step up and say enough is enough,” Marty said.(Caption Clinton and his wife Carrie Lynn reminisce over old family photos.)As for Steven Morin, he is almost finished writing a book on his life. He says it helps him heal.He has started a non-profit business called the Indigenous Children’s Mentoring Society. He want to offer a mentorship program to Indigenous children, similar to Big Brothers and Big Sisters. He is starting in his home community of Enoch First Nation. He is looking forward to starting his own family.(Steven Morin speaking at his event December 2018 called Breaking the Chains. The event was in support of victims of abuse)“I will someday, hopefully, make that family for myself. I can be the father and the parent I never got to have. I can teach my future daughter or son that I wasn’t able to teach. Like how to tie your shoe. How to swing on a swing. I’m loving life right now.“This is healing — the next step on my healing journey. And I hope I can help others heal while I’m at it.”firstname.lastname@example.org@aptnchris
CALGARY — The National Energy Board says crude-by-rail exports in January fell compared with December, but remained more than twice as high as 12 months earlier.The federal agency reports an average of 325,500 barrels per day of oil was exported by rail in January, down from 353,800 bpd in December but well above 145,700 bpd in January 2018.It says total crude oil exports by rail, pipeline and trucking fell to 3.49 million bpd in January from 3.92 million in December, but were higher than the 3.38 million bpd in January 2018.Alberta enacted a crude production curtailment program as of Jan. 1 designed to keep 325,000 bpd off the market to clear up a glut of oil that had overwhelmed pipeline capacity and lowered prices. The curtailment level is to fall to about 175,000 bpd by June.About half of Canada’s crude-by-rail shipments in December were made by Calgary-based Imperial Oil Ltd.The company cut its rail shipments in January and vowed to take them to near zero in February because of market reaction to the curtailment program.Imperial says the curtailments resulted in narrower differences between prices for crude sold in Alberta and in the U.S. and thus impaired the economic case for paying rail fees to win better prices on the U.S. Gulf Coast.

The 40-member Commission, which formulates international policies and recommends activities in the field of crime control, is expected to spotlight the phenomenon of trafficking just as the UN Office of Drugs and Crime (UNDOC) has confirmed that the majority of victims of human trafficking are women and children, and sexual exploitation is the most common form of such abuse.While there is a dearth of reliable statistics worldwide on human trafficking, UNODC’s newly established global database focusing on such trends has revealed that victims are typically recruited from moderately poor countries, transported through countries which provide safe routes, and end up in more affluent parts of the world.In addition, Asia, the former Soviet Republics and Africa are the major regions of origin, while Central Asia and Eastern Europe currently act mainly as a transit area for trafficked persons. Asia, excluding Japan, is now as much a source as a destination, and the main destination regions can be found in the industrialized world.During its current session – set to run through 22 May – the Commission will discuss trends in trafficking in human beings; investigating and prosecuting such cases, including national and international law enforcement cooperation and assistance; and awareness-raising and social intervention, including victim support and the role of civil society.A workshop on “Trafficking in Human Beings, Especially in Women and Children: Lessons Learned and Policy Implications” is scheduled for Thursday. The event is being organized by the institutes of the UN Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice Programme (CICP) network and coordinated by the UN Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI).

Prostate cancer could be ruled out with a simple MRI scan and prevent one in four men needing an invasive biopsy, a new study shows.Around 100,000 men are sent for a biopsy each year in Britain following blood tests which suggest prostate cancer might be present.But many will not have an aggressive tumour – or cancer at all – and run the risk of developing sepsis or urinary problems through the unnecessary exploratory surgery. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. MRI scans can reveal the size of the tumour, how densely packed the cells are and how well it is connected to the blood stream, all of which indicate how aggressive the cancer is.In the study, scanning correctly diagnosed almost all of the aggressive cancers (93 per cent), whereas biopsy correctly diagnosed only half 48 per cent, For men who had a negative MRI scan, nine out of 10 either had either no cancer or a harmless cancer, an accuracy rate far highter than surgery.The National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (Nice) is currently rewriting guidelines for the diagnosis of prostate cancer and are expected to call for initial scans. Some men with no cancer or harmless cancers are sometimes given the wrong diagnosis and are then treated even though this offers no survival benefitDr Hashim Ahmed Dr Hashim Ahmed, of UCL Biopsies are also notoriously poor at detecting aggressive cancer, missing half of deadly cases and over-diagnosing in 25 per cent of cases.Now a new study by University College London (UCL) and the Medical Research Council (MRC) has shown around 25,000 men could be spared a biopsy and needless treatment, if they were scanned first.A trial of 576 men across 11 NHS hospitals found that scans could help one in four men avoid further treatment.“Prostate cancer has aggressive and harmless forms,” said study author Dr Hashim Ahmed, of UCL.“Our current biopsy test can be inaccurate because the tissue samples are taken at random. This means it cannot confirm whether a cancer is aggressive or not and can miss aggressive cancers that are actually there.“Because of this some men with no cancer or harmless cancers are sometimes given the wrong diagnosis and are then treated even though this offers no survival benefit and can often cause side effects.” Men whose scans came back negative would instead be monitored by the doctors rather than undergoing surgery.“We are searching for better ways to diagnose prostate cancer, the commonest cancer in men in the UK, since PSA alone is an imperfect test,” said Professor Ros Eeles, Professor of Prostate Cancer Genetics at The Institute of Cancer Research, London.”This study provides ground breaking data that the addition of a multi parametric MRI can be used in the diagnostic pathway after PSA to better predict who would most benefit from prostate biopsy.”An economic evaluation will now be needed to demonstrate if this method is cost-effective, and should be taken up as standard of care, since internationally MRI prior to prostate biopsy is not universally practised.”The new study was published in The Lancet.
NOKIA WAS FORCED to pay several million euro to criminals who had threatened to leak the source code that was used in its phones six years ago.The Finnish police told local TV station MTV that it was investigating the case, which happened in 2008, and that the case was still open.According to Reuters, the blackmailers had acquired the encryption key for a core part of Nokia’s Symbian software and threatened to make it public.If this happened, it would have allowed anyone to write additional code for the operating system, including possible malware which would have been indistinguishable from the actual software.Nokia agreed to deliver the cash to a parking lot for collection, but not before it notified the police about the situation. However, while the money was picked up, the police lost track of the criminals after it happened.At the time, Symbian’s market share was roughly 50% as the software was used by a number of manufacturers. Nokia later replaced Symbian with Windows Phone in 2011 when it launched its Lumia smartphone range.Nokia’s mobile phone business was bought by Microsoft earlier this year for €5.4 billion. When the deal was completed, Microsoft said that it would help “accelerate innovation and market adoption for Windows Phones.”Read: Would you give up your smartphone….for this? >Read: Apple has dodged a massive $840 million price-fixing court case >
Les voitures ne verront plus le Mont Saint-MichelSamedi, les navettes ont commencé à transporter les touristes vers le Mont Saint-Michel. Dorénavant, plus aucune voiture ne pourra accéder au rocher et devra être garée à 3 kilomètres de là. Attention touristes, ne comptez plus accéder au Mont Saint-Michel en voiture, cette époque est désormais révolue. Depuis samedi, seules les navettes sont en effet en mesure d’acheminer le public au rocher. Les touristes doivent ainsi garer leur véhicule dans le parking déplacé à 3 kilomètres de là avant de marcher pour prendre les bus. D’une capacité de 4.100 places, le parking est désormais accessible pour un prix de 8,50 euros par véhicule, au lieu des 6 euros qui étaient demandés auparavant. Une augmentation dont ne se sont pas plaints les touristes interrogés par l’AFP.”C’est superbe. C’est normal qu’on interdise les voitures au pied d’un tel site. C’est plus écologique. Il faut marcher avant de pouvoir prendre une navette mais c’est plat. Notre fils de quatre ans l’a fait”, confiaient Arnaud et Stéphanie Drelon, et leurs trois enfants à leur arrivée au mont samedi matin. A son retour, la famille de l’Oise se disait toujours satisfaite, même si le cadet de quatre ans était sur les épaules de son père. Samedi, les navettes pour le public ont ainsi fonctionné au rythme d’une tous les quart d’heure puis 5 minutes, au gré des flux de touristes.Cette mesure constitue en fait la deuxième étape clé du projet visant à permettre au monument classé au patrimoine mondial de l’Unesco de redevenir une île 20 jours en moyenne par an. La première a été franchie en 2009 avec l’ouverture d’un barrage, dont les premiers lâchers d’eau ont commencé à désensabler le mont. La dernière étape sera la mise en service d’un pont-passerelle en remplacement de l’actuelle digue-route qui relie depuis 1880 le mont au continent et doit être détruire en 2015.Des navettes qui ne peuvent se croiser ? À lire aussiMal des transports : pourquoi est-on malade en voiture et comment l’éviter ?Néanmoins, les conditions de ce nouvel accès au Mont sont d’ores et déjà l’objet de vives critiques. Notamment en cause, la longue marche une fois la voiture garée : il faut parcourir au moins 900 mètres, des premières places attribuées au public sur le nouveau parking jusqu’au point de départ des navettes, selon le podomètre de l’AFP, puis 390 mètres, du point d’arrivée au mont, selon Veolia. “Je trouve que c’est un peu long”, a ainsi confié essoufflé, Jacky, 86 ans au début du parcours.Outre ce problème, la mise en service des navettes a également connu quelques difficultés et a dû être retardée de novembre à aujourd’hui. En effet, les navettes réversibles conçues pour le mont n’ont qu’une capacité de 66 places contre 95 promises par Veolia et il semblerait qu’elles ne puissent se croiser sans encombre sur la passerelle un peu trop étroite. Alors que le lancement des navettes hippomobiles a été repoussé, Veolia a mis en service des bus classiques en plus pour compenser mais les Cassandre prédisent des heures d’attente les jours de pointe.”Pour l’instant, ça va. Mais j’attends de voir comment ça va se passer lorsque le premier car de Japonais va arriver à midi”, a expliqué à l’AFP un agent d’un tour opérateur japonais. De son côté, Laurent Beauvais président PS de la région Basse-Normandie et président du syndicat mixte qui gère le projet de rétablissement du caractère maritime du mont, a toutefois indiqué que “la première impression est plutôt bonne. Pour l’instant, tout semble aller bien”.Le 30 avril 2012 à 18:01 • Maxime Lambert

Dubai: Two separate attacks killed at least 20 police in Yemen’s government-held second city Aden Thursday, one by Shiite rebels and the other by jihadists, security and medical sources said. Civilians were among scores of people wounded in the two attacks which targeted the United Arab Emirates-backed police and shattered a year of relative calm in the southern port city. The first attack was a suicide car bombing carried out by jihadists on a police station, which killed three officers and wounded at least 20 others, including civilians, a security source said.

The suicide bombing targeted policemen who were gathering early in the morning at the entrance of a police station in Aden’s Sheikh Othman area. “Tens of wounded were hospitalised at Aden surgical hospital after an explosion in the surrounding area,” Doctors Without Borders said on Twitter. Also Read – US states declare emergency over hurricane Dorian Advertise With Us The Huthi rebels said the attack on Al-Jala Camp, about 20 kilometres west of Aden, was carried out with a drone and a ballistic missile. Aden is controlled by the Yemeni government and its supporters in a Saudi-led coalition, who have been fighting the Huthi rebels since 2015. But it also hosts Sunni extremists of Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State group, who have claimed a number of attacks in the city in recent years. In February last year, twin suicide bombings claimed by IS hit a base of an Aden counter-terrorism unit, killing five people, including a child. Advertise With Us Five months later, two people were killed when an attacker blew himself in the city. The government established its headquarters in Aden after the rebels forced it out of the capital Sanaa in 2015. In January last year, the city was rocked by deadly clashes that saw southern separatists seize much of it from other pro-government forces. A former British colony and protectorate, South Yemen was an independent country until it merged with the north in 1990. The two sides fought a devastating civil war four years later that culminated in northern forces occupying the south. Sowing grievances that persist to this day. The UAE is a key partner in the Saudi-led coalition which has enforced an air and sea blockade on rebel-held areas and carried out a controversial bombing campaign that has exacted a heavy civilian death toll. In recent months, the rebels have hit back with missile and drone attacks targeting neighbouring Saudi Arabia. Several rounds of UN-brokered talks, including an accord reached in Stockholm in December, have failed to end the fighting. The conflict has killed or wounded tens of thousands of people and resulted in the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, according to the United Nations. An estimated 24 million Yemenis — more than 80 percent of the population — depend on some form of humanitarian assistance for survival, UN agencies say.
REUTERS/Adnan Abidi [Representational Image]A 14-year-old Dalit girl was allegedly gang-raped and set ablaze by some miscreants in Uttar Pradesh’s Muzaffarnagar on Friday, May 24. The victim’s body was found in a charred state at her house.According to reports, the girl used to work at a brick kiln and stayed at a makeshift room. The autopsy report suggested that the girl died of asphyxiation and burn injuries.The UP police have booked seven people for the heinous crime, although none of them has been arrested. The police said that they have not yet arrested the accused since they are still gathering evidence of the incident.The girl along with her family used to work at the brick kiln and lived in a room adjacent to it. The victim’s father had gone to the town to get some medicines on Friday evening after her mother fell ill. He left her along with her brother, 12, and the incident took place after he left the kiln. He was informed the next day that his daughter’s body was found in a charred stateAccording to the police, the girl’s family did not suspect rape initially but filed a complaint against the brick kiln owner and six others claiming so. The father claimed that she was taken by two men who work in the area and was gang-raped, after which they burnt her alive. The girl’s slippers and some clothes were recovered from the crime spot.”An FIR has been registered on the basis of a complaint by the victim’s father against the brick kiln owner and six others on charges of gang rape, murder and sections of the SC/ST Atrocities Act. The allegations of rape have not been confirmed. But the investigation is pending and arrests will be made as per evidence,” said the area’s Circle Officer, reports The Indian Express.The girl’s father also claimed that since the makeshift room does not have electricity or any other inflammable materials, how can the room catch fire. He alleged the accused to have set the dress on fire as to misrepresent it as an accident. He claimed that everyone knows what happened with his daughter but choose to remain silent and there is immense pressure on anyone who wants to speak out.The National Commission for Scheduled Castes has taken cognizance of the case, police said. A statement of the girl’s father will also be recorded before a magistrate, adds the report.
