second Test (Source: Reuters) Top News The England cricket team has drawn a lot of criticism for being inconsistent in the ongoing Test series against South Africa Several questions were raised regarding their attitude after the defeat in the second Test However England came back strongly in the third Test to secure a thrilling win by 340 runs This led Root to instil renewed confidence in his side and claim that England is trying to find out the most successful formula moving forward Recalling the performance in the second Test he said “We weren’t good enough at Trent Bridge and I

it’s very difficult to use Test matches as experiments but it’s important to find out what works early on so you have the opportunity to be more consistent and more successful” Stressing on the need

India’s Related News New Delhi did well to respond decisively when tragedy struck Nepal But India is at the very beginning of a long and demanding process of delivering relief to victims assisting their rehabilitation and contributing to the reconstruction of Nepal While Kathmandu is now being flooded with media and relief teams from around the world the cameras will soon leave Nepal The world’s attention will turn to the next crisis But India must stick around for the long haul Geographic proximity cultural intimacy and economic interdependence means Nepal’s problems are also India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi is aware of this reality and has devoted special attention to revitalising ties after he took charge as PM Nepal is the only country Modi has visited twice On both occasions he underlined the unique bond between the two countries If there was a moment to lend substance to the claim that the neighbourhood ranks first in India’s foreign policy it is now and in Nepal Signalling goodwill is easy as Modi did immediately He must now follow through and initiate a comprehensive strategy to support Nepal’s rapid recovery This will involve a significant commitment of resources Even more important is a credible long-term strategy for Indian participation in Nepal’s efforts to rise from the rubble Central to that is the political recognition that any framework for external assistance must be supportive of but subordinate to the initiatives of the Nepali people Disaster Politics It is a matter of time before politics intrudes on the management of the aftermath Delhi must be acutely conscious of two pitfalls The Indian government must avoid any real or seeming violation of Nepal’s sovereignty In humanitarian assistance and disaster relief India has insisted on absolute respect for the host government It should not forget that principle Most political elites are touchy about external assistance during a national calamity The political classes in Kathmandu are even touchier especially when it comes to India’s role India has much goodwill among Nepal’s people But Delhi could easily squander it by being politically insensitive Delhi must also insulate its relief effort from India’s domestic politics Nepal has long been a tempting theatre for various Indian groups to play their own political games It is essential for the government to stay on top of the discourse Given the long-term commitments involved Modi must reach out to all parties and take them into confidence on India’s aid strategy Equally important is the need to draw in the chief ministers of the states bordering Nepal That fits in with the PM’s emphasis on federalism as well as the challenges that Nepal and its neighbouring Indian regions share Regional Cooperation Delhi must not forget that the crisis in Nepal is not just about India and its support for a special neighbour Many countries and international institutions will be involved in assisting Nepal Instead of thinking in exclusive terms Delhi must actively promote greater regional and international cooperation in rebuilding Nepal Although Saarc has agreements on disaster management they have not really been effective Delhi must focus on accelerating sub-regional cooperation between Bangladesh Bhutan India and Nepal India must also engage China Europe and America on making the Himalayan regions less vulnerable to natural disasters Beijing has often talked about a triangular trans-Himalayan cooperation among India Nepal and China As Modi prepares to travel to China this is an opportune moment to

has found that doing fixed intensity exercise during menstrual cycle does not affect a woman’s autonomic heat responses (skin blood flow and sweating) That’s according to a collaboration between Massey University the University at Buffalo and the University of Otago They also found that exercise performance was impaired by humid heat due to the reduced ability of the body to sweat effectively ALSO READ|Simple walking regime can help improve heart health The research studied the effects of heat on ten well-trained women across their menstrual cycles Each woman completed four trials comprising of resting and fixed-intensity cycling followed by a 30-minute variable-intensity performance trial The trials were conducted in the early-follicular (days 3-6) and mid-luteal (days 18-21) phases of their menstrual cycle in dry and humid heat environments Dr Toby Mündel from Massey University and co-author of the study said “This study indicates that trained women self-pace to minimise autonomic differences (skin blood flow and sweating) but at the expense of their exercise performance under humid heat stress One in two competitive women believe that their menstrual cycle negatively impacts training and performance; however these results question the assertion made by previous researchers that women should avoid competition or face a disadvantage when performing exercise with

approval of disallowing TDLR in March the matter was further discussed and approved in Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission (MERC) after which the court gave its nod on the revenue in its

bills while the rest were exempted The undertaking now plans to adjust their bill amounts in the coming month by charging them lesser than the surcharge levied before “Those four cycles which include almost two lakh power consumers were charged with TDLR in October and so their amounts will be compensated in the power bill charged for October in November However the undertaking is yet to receive

working harder than previous years It’s not a problem with the coach” the Italy international said “It’s our fault the players” PSG’s defensive frailties were exposed again as Guingamp scored twice in quick succession midway through the second half After forward Yannis Salibur opened the scoring in the 66th minute midfielder Nill De Pauw added the second four minutes later Last weekend PSG trailed 2-0 at home to league leader Nice and salvaged a 2-2 draw thanks to two second-half goals from league top scorer Edinson Cavani But despite Cavani’s 80th-minute goal – his 17th of the season –against

was given a new contract and it reportedly cost PSG around 20 million euros ($21 million) to remove him and his coaching staff PSG replaced him with Emery whose reputation was high having just led Sevilla to its third straight Europa League title Guingamp’s win must have been particularly satisfying for coach Antoine Kombouare He was sacked by PSG at roughly the same stage of the season five years ago despite his side being three points clear at the top heading into the winter break Kombouare explained his strategy for beating PSG “The idea was to stop them passing out from the back” he said “We closed them down high up and when we won the ball we pushed forward quickly” The win moved Guingamp up to fourth place behind PSG which trails Monaco by three points and Nice by four The gap could be larger after Sunday’s games with Nice at home to 17th-place Dijon and Monaco at home to Lyon OTHER GAMES A late goal from center half Christopher Jullien helped Toulouse salvage a 1-1 home

Arvind-Arvind Rahul-Rahul yeh saare bas kuch saal rahenge par desh 5000 saal ka hai” He says that India is sending a confusing message to the world by not taking a firm stand against Pakistan "On one

conspired against us" Vishwas states in the message The leader bats for tougher posturing against Islamabad while he talks of mainstreaming the woes of Kashmiri youths and increasing efforts to reach out to them In his message Vishwas takes on both the BJP and AAP for a second time as he mentions the much touted India’s surgical strike He says "The surgical strikes were a matter of great pride for
