Cricket IPL 2021, DC vs PBKS: Disappointed Punjab captain KL Rahul says, ‘changing the ball would be fair to the team bowling second’ IPL 2021, DC vs PBKS: Despite playing a fine knock of 61 off 51 balls, Punjab Kings captain KL Rahul was left disappointed as Delhi Capitals chased a 196-run target with 10 balls to spare to register an easy 6-wicket victory at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. It was especially disappointing as it was Rahul’s birthday. He said that the ball should be changed every two overs to avoid undue advantage to the batters in the second innings. Shikhar Dhawan starred in the match with a 49-ball 92.Rahul was not happy with the conditions at Wankhede, especially with the ball getting wet with every stroke. The dew factor rendered experienced bowlers useless as they failed to maintain the line and length. Rahul agreed with the commentators who suggested that the ball should be changed every two overs to put a level playing field. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May Likecio.comUnlocking the Success of Digital Transformation with Active Intelligencecio.comPhotoStickHow To Back Up All Your Old Photos In SecondsPhotoStickIPL 2020: Bad news for Sunrisers Hyderabad’s Jonny Bairstow“Dew did sway things. Bowling second is always a challenge at the Wankhede. We always try to prepare for such conditions but it does get difficult in situations. I think it would be fair [the ball changes every two overs,] and I’m not just saying that because I’m on the losing side. I did ask the umpires to change the ball a couple of times but that’s not in the rules,” KL Rahul told the host broadcaster Star Sports in the post-match presentation ceremony.Also Read: DC vs PBKS IPL 2021 match highlights: Dhawan leads Delhi Capitals to 6-wicket victory over Punjab KingsEarlier, KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal stitched together a 122-run opening partnership to help Punjab Kings post a 195-run total.

But Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw gave Delhi Capitals a flying start, punishing every Punjab bowler in the process, especially an experienced Mohammed Shami, who went for 53 runs in his 4 overs.Also Read: IPL 2021, DC vs PBKS: Punjab Kings’ Mayank Agarwal happy to hit top gear, says, not thinking about previous scores helpedHowever, KL Rahul, congratulated Shikhar Dhawan, his competitor in Team India’s opener role for the powerful knock.“Shikhar batted well, so congratulations to them. When we come to Wankhede, bowling second is always a challenge. We prepare for such conditions. It does get difficult against these quality batters,” KL Rahul said.“Victory would have been sweet, so it’s slightly disappointing. But we have a lot of games, so hopefully, we come back stronger and win few games. Right now it looks 10-15 runs short, but I think 190-odd looked good. I and Mayank thought 180-190 would have been great on this wicket,” Rahul added.For more sports updates, follow us at insidesport.co and Moneyball for IPL players’ salaries.

The financial market panic of the past month has seen plenty of blue-chip safe havens tumble along with more vulnerable cyclicals. National Grid’s (LSE: NG) another lifeboat whose rapid descent over the past month comes as a huge surprise. Its share price is down 11% since the Covid-19 crisis exploded in the latter part of February.So why is its decline a shock? Earnings here remain broadly resilient, whatever happens to the domestic or global economy. Electricity is needed to keep the lights on, the kettle boiling, and the television switched on, whatever the weather.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Normally, you’d expect this to encourage waves of flight-to-safety investment flows into National Grid, especially at a time when the number of profit warnings across equity markets continues to grow.This isn’t the only reason, however. Bank of England interest rate cuts last week also bodes well for utilities giants like these. Owing to their vast capital expenditure budgets, the likes of National Grid pack their balance sheets with oodles of debt which, of course, costs a lot to service. A falling benchmark rate brings down the colossal costs of carrying such large amounts of debt.Rates are fallingLatest action by Threadneedle Street to drag rates down to record levels of 0.25% isn’t likely to be the end of the matter either. As the steady spread of the coronavirus hollows out the UK economy it’s possible a reduction all the way to zero could be just around the corner.City analysts don’t believe National Grid’s record of long-term profits growth will be derailed because of the pandemic. They forecast a 32% bottom-line rise in the fiscal year to March, and a 4% increase in financial 2021 too.This supreme earnings visibility also gives the power grid operator the confidence to keep growing dividends. Those falling interest rates give it extra balance sheet flexibility to shell out more chunky increases as well.5%-plus dividend yieldsThe number crunchers expect last year’s 46.52p per share total reward to rise to 48.7p in the current period. An improved 50.1p payout is anticipated for fiscal 2021 too. As a consequence, National Grid boasts bulky yields of 5.1% and 5.3% for this year and next respectively.Dividends are likely to topple like dominoes across UK equity markets in 2020 (and possibly 2021, depending on the success of measures to tackle the coronavirus this year). This is clearly something that National Grid shareholders needn’t worry too much about though.Adding to its appeal, the network operator currently carries a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 15.6 times. This sits fractionally above the FTSE 100 broader average. It also soars above the blue-chip index’s current mean reading following the sell-off of recent weeks.I reckon National Grid’s worth every inch of this premium rating though. It’s one of the safest lifeboats out there for troubled social, political and economic times like these. And what’s more, those bulky dividend yields help to take the edge off. This is one of the best safe-haven stocks out there today.
LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Speed merchant: Tom James makes the yardsTom James is frustratingTom James has had a turbo-charged start to the Rabo Direct Pro 12. Arguably, no player in Europe is making as many 15 – 25 yard breaks as the Cardiff Blues winger – the problem is no player is making as many mistakes either. James is infuriating to watch. His powerful line breaks make you question why he hasn’t had 30 caps for Wales, yet his decision making and handling make you wonder why he was ever given a professional contract in the first place. We can but hope that one day his bottom half clicks with the top. Sadly, until that happens James will always remain a regional player. during the LV= Cup match between Cardiff Blues and Harlequins at the Cardiff City Stadium on February 5, 2012 in Cardiff, Wales. All change: The existing Heineken Cup format is under threatDon’t blame the English clubs for the European falloutMany in Wales will be quick to the blame the English clubs for their role in undermining the Heineken Cup. This shouldn’t come as a surprise. Welsh fans like to point the finger at English rugby – sometimes two. For this reason the BT deal will be viewed as another example of English self-interest ruining the game. But this isn’t true. Quite the opposite in fact. The English and French clubs are well within their rights to demand a change to the European format. The current qualification for the Heineken Cup is grossly stacked in favour of the Pro 12 teams. It means that some teams in the Rabo Direct can saunter their way through the season without a care in the world – yet if this situation occurred in business, the Monopolies and Mergers commission would have been summoned long ago. This inequality not only dilutes the quality of the Pro 12, but it also weakens the Heineken Cup as a premium tournament. Whatever agreement is reached, Europe’s showpiece tournament needs to evolve. France isn’t all it’s cracked up to beWelsh and French rugby are inextricably linked at the moment with Jamie Roberts the latest stellar name lined up with a move to the Top 14. But the fortunes of some Welsh players during the opening weeks of the Top 14 may make future emigrants think twice. Perpignan’s financial problems mean that they are reportedly keen to offload James Hook and his £300,000 contract. Gethin Jenkins has only made one start for Toulon and is currently the second choice loose-head at Toulon to Andrew Sheridan. And whilst we constantly see Mike Phillips being interviewed relaxing en soleil, his situation is anything but relaxed. Poor performances and unacceptable off field behaviour have given Phillips a popularity rating akin of Louis XVI with the Bayonne hierarchy and resulted in an internal ban. Add this to difficulties with international release, particularly in a Lions year, and France may not seem as alluring as it was. That is of course unless you’re in form, like Lee Byrne or Aled Brew, with the former rapidly becoming a marquee player in the Top 14. French leave: Mike Phillips is in trouble with his club Bayonne for misbehaving By Paul WilliamsA month is a long time in Welsh rugby, so let’s take a deep breath and look at the highs and lows of the opening weeks in the PrincipalitySamson Lee – the new Adam JonesWelsh rugby lunges from one positional wobble to another. No sooner had Sam Warburton and Justin Tipuric filled Martyn Williams’ estimable boots, when thoughts turned to Adam Jones’ long-term successor. Step-forward, Samson Lee. If you typed his vital statistics into a career advisors’ laptop, it would spew out two words – Tight and Head. At 5ft 10in and 18st 2lbs and with a custom-made short back, the 19 year-old’s physique is the prototype for a No 3. His performances in last year’s Junior World Championship were exemplary and his destruction of New Zealand’s loose head in their 9-6 victory over the Baby Blacks was as biblical as his name. Lee’s scrummaging for the Scarlets has been equally impressive in the opening month of the season – and, maybe more surprisingly, so too have his ball skills. Lee’s deft wrap around pass in the opening game against Leinster will have caught Gatland’s eye. A fast-track into the Welsh set-up could be in the offing.‘Rucking’ is backThere has been no change to the ruck law – Law 10.4 (b) states that a player must not stamp or trample on an opponent. In recent years use of the boot in rugby has attracted the same level of taboo afforded to fox hunting. But something seems to have changed. There have been numerous occasions in the opening four weeks of the Pro12 season where the Welsh regions have cleared out rucks with their feet, yet have gone unpunished. This seemingly relaxed attitude to rucking presents an interesting quandary. Use of the boot may seem barbaric to people outside of the game, but sensible deployment of studs is a very effective way of speeding up the breakdown, and encouraging a faster, more attractive game. Whistles, yellow cards and lectures from referees don’t stop players from lying on the wrong side of the ruck, boots do.

Until a single house is built, there is a lot of dialogue and communication between the architect and the client.

This location allows the house to have an entire view of the mountain without getting any interference from other houses since it’s located on the way into the complex. The hierarchy of the house is vertically organized and it’s sorted by the characteristic of the spaces; the 1st floor with publicness, the 2nd floor composed of private spaces and the 3rd floor with mentally private space.Save this picture!© Yoon JoonhwanThis hierarchy leads to the gradual changes through the floors. The 1st floor, where living room, dining area and kitchen are placed is for all family members and it also has a function of reception for guests as well. On the 2nd floor, there are a dress room, all bedrooms, and a bathroom where has a bathtub looking out the east window. The bathroom, which is connected to the outside through windows and natural light, provides an experience that seems to be in the middle of the forest.Save this picture!© Yoon JoonhwanIn order to maximize the effect of attracting nature into the bathroom, the materials of the wall and bathtub were selected as cypress trees and long windows vertically allowed to capture the forest landscape and natural lighting as much as possible. As such, while the 1st floor is a space where all family members gather up and have conversation, the 2nd floor will be a space only for themselves.Save this picture!Diagram 04The 3rd floor is a very private space even mentally, with space for meditation and terrace that melt the requests of the client as much as possible. For the client who enjoy prayer and meditation, there is a place where he can feel the rising sun and small forest through the window opened to the east. The client has the life of flying into the sky and he wanted to have a space to contemplate while floating and looking at the sky, and the terrace on the 3rd floor realized this. There are rings to hang a hammock on the wooden finish around the terrace of the gable. It depicts the client’s imagination of floating in a hammock and staring at the sky by himself among a forest.Save this picture!© Yoon JoonhwanProject gallerySee allShow lessRumah Fajar / Studio JencquelSelected ProjectsVanadzor Technological Center / ARCHcoop Architectural StudioSelected Projects Share South Korea Construction: Mechanical Engineers: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/957665/precious-talk-house-jnda Clipboard CopyAbout this officeJNDAOfficeFollowProductBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesYongin-siOn FacebookSouth KoreaPublished on February 28, 2021Cite: “Precious Talk House / JNDA” 27 Feb 2021.

Home Indiana Agriculture News Indiana Soybeans Ahead of Schedule Developmentally SHARE By Eric Pfeiffer – Jul 9, 2020 SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Previous articleAdditional Commodities Eligible for Coronavirus Food Assistance ProgramNext articleIndiana Corn Crop Getting Challenged This Year Eric Pfeiffer Purdue Extension Soybean Specialist Dr. Shaun Casteel says soybeans are about a week ahead of schedule developmentally.“We had over half our crop planted by about May 15, which normally it’s the 21st or 22nd, so about a week ahead of the pace there. We had some folks get in in April and some that got in that first week in May, even with that cold freeze, and that has maintained,” says Casteel.“So, as we’ve gone through the season, we’ve had 75 percent of the crops emerge by June 7 and, as of last week, 90 percent emerged. So, development has been ahead of pace.”While the hot, dry forecast might bring some immediate concern for some corn fields, Casteel isn’t as worried about soybeans yet.“My rough guess is that we’re probably another 10 to 14 days out to have the crop pod in a quarter of the state. So, if you want to go out to 50 percent of state, probably by the end of July we’ll have about 50 percent of the state podding. At that point, this is where I really start to have some issues or at least make sure that we’re in a state where we’ve got good water supply, even with extreme temperatures, but if we have good water supply and good rooting, we’re doing pretty well.”Now, that doesn’t mean there aren’t some soybean fields, or at least parts of fields, that are seeing stress.“Where I’m starting to see some soybeans stressing out has been more on the field edges. So, think about headlands where there’s a lot of travel, a lot of compaction, limited root development,” Casteel told HAT. “In those, it’s not just access to water but its access to the nutrients that’s moved by that water. So, I’ve been noticing potassium deficiency showing up on fields.”The Purdue Crop Chat podcast is available now on iTunes. Indiana Soybeans Ahead of Schedule Developmentally
