Uttar Pradesh shocker: Woman’s hands broken for not bearing male child

first_imgBoth hands of a woman were fractured by her husband and in-laws in a village here allegedly for giving birth to three daughters and not bearing a male child in eight years of married life, police said. “The woman has suffered serious injuries and we are waiting for the medical report. Action will be taken against the suspects,” Superintendent of Police (Rural) Subhash Chandra Shakya said today. The incident took place in Babra village and came to light recently after the parents of the victim dropped by for a visit and found her in an injured condition. They took her to a hospital and filed an FIR against her husband and in-laws, Mr. Shakya said. She was held captive and not allowed to talk to her parents after the incident, the SP said. She was married to Shailandra Kumar eight years ago. Her husband and in-laws started physically abusing her after she gave birth to a third daughter some months ago, the official said. On March 30, Shailandra, his brother, Jitendra Kumar, and other members of the family beat her up, fracturing both her hands. She was again assaulted on April 4, police said. A complaint was lodged against Shailandra, his brother, Jitendra, his father, Dataram, and mother, Reshma Devi, they added. The four were booked under section 325 (punishment for voluntarily causing grievous hurt to someone) of the IPC and various sections of the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act and the Dowry Prohibition Act, Mr. Shakya said.last_img read more

Well-rested Dyip end three-game skid, shut down Bolts

Mayweather Sued Over TV Bout

first_imgTweetPinShare0 Shares LAS VEGAS — Two fledgling professional fighters in Las Vegas are suing Floyd Mayweather Jr. and producers of a cable TV show, alleging they never consented to be part of a promotional training bout depicted as a “dog house” fight that was supposed to last until someone quit.Hashim Rahman Jr., 23, and younger brother Sharif Rahman, 18, accuse Showtime Networks and Mayweather of profiting at their expense.The lawsuit filed last week in Nevada state court seeks unspecified monetary damages of more than $10,000 from the New York-based network and Mayweather, who goes by the nickname “Money.”Mayweather’s attorney, Mark Tratos, declined to comment. Showtime officials didn’t immediately respond to a message.The lawsuit also accuses Mayweather of lying in testimony Sept. 23 before the Nevada State Athletic Commission about the All Access show at his gym.“Defendant Mayweather falsely testified that Hasim’s 31-minute fight did not happen as aired, and that the fighters took several breaks,” the document said.The lawsuit alleges that Mayweather forced Sharif Rahman to fight several rounds lasting five to seven minutes in length and said that if Rahman left the ring, he faced beating by others.“Sharif feared for his safety and was forced to fight,” the lawsuit said.The lawsuit also says Sharif Rahman didn’t sign a release agreeing to be filmed or having his name used for the show and that Hasim Rahman Jr. fought the same boxer for more than 30 minutes with no breaks.The Rahman brothers are the sons of former professional heavyweight boxer Hasim Rahman Sr.Their attorney, Vicki Greco, declined comment about the lawsuit filed Thursday in Clark County District Court.Mayweather was licensed this year as a promoter in Nevada. His attorney, Shane Emerick, told the athletic commission last month that Mayweather knows that gambling in the gym is illegal and scenes showing cash exchanging hands in bets on the fighting didn’t really happen.The boxer and his attorney also discussed the appearance of marijuana on the show. They said that despite All Access showing Mayweather at his Las Vegas mansion while marijuana cigarettes are rolled and smoked, Mayweather doesn’t smoke the drug or drink alcohol and wouldn’t be around secondhand pot smoke because it could show up in drug tests.Asked whether commissioners were satisfied with Mayweather’s responses, commission Chairman Francisco Aguilar referred questions to Bob Bennett, commission Executive Director. Bennett said the commission wasn’t a party to the lawsuit and declined to comment.(KEN RITTER)last_img read more

Aberdeen v Rangers: a rivalry inflamed by a terrible tackle

first_img Pinterest Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Twitter Aberdeen Read more Guardian Sport Network If the flames of the rivalry between Aberdeen and Rangers had been flickering before their meeting in October 1988, a huge barrel of fuel was poured on to that fire in the fifth minute at Pittodrie. Neil Simpson’s horrific tackle on Ian Durrant would cement the hatred forever. Be warned: if things like this make you feel a squeamish, it might not be best to follow the YouTube link of Simpson’s tackle on Durrant. Challenges had already been flying in beforehand, with former Aberdeen midfielder Neale Cooper laying down a few markers in a Rangers shirt. Sadly, Durrant was about to be on the receiving end of one tackle too many.With the ball loose in front of the Rangers box, Simpson and Durrant headed towards each other. The Aberdeen midfielder, went completely over the top of the ball and stamped down on Durrant’s leg, the full horror of the injury clear for all to see on the replays. Football during this decade was a tough business, but quite how Simpson remained on the pitch is a mystery. “Durrant’s exit after five minutes’ play should have been followed by the departure of his assailant, Simpson,” the Times reported. It was a sending off in any era.Durrant lay on the turf in agony, desperately in need of medical attention. Astonishingly, he had to leave the pitch on the back of physio Phil Boersma. “At the time, the medical service said the only available stretcher was outside the ground in an ambulance,” Durrant recalled later. And some people bemoan that health and safety has gone mad.The tackle did little to calm matters and the challenges continued to fly in, with both Alex McLeish and Ally McCoist suffering cuts in a match that the Times described as “blood and blunder.” Occasionally there was some football played, Aberdeen eventually running out 2-1 winners.Cooper gave Rangers the lead – no refusing to celebrate a goal against your former club on this day – but second-half goals from Jim Bett and Charlie Nicholas secured the points for Aberdeen and inflicted a first league defeat of the season on the visitors. Unsurprisingly, Rangers were furious.Skipper Terry Butcher was later fined £500 for kicking a hole into the referee’s dressing room door, with Souness unable to contain his anger. “We accept that every game we play is a cup final for the opposition,” said Souness. “But it’s very difficult to restrain my players under the provocation we experience on many occasions, such as Saturday’s match at Aberdeen. The whole of Scottish football should be concerned with the tackle that has threatened Ian Durrant’s future as a professional footballer.” Read more Liverpool walked the title 30 years ago but never bullied Manchester United With his cruciate ligaments in his knee torn by the challenge, Durrant’s faced a battle to play again at the top level. He had a four-hour operation the Monday after the match and, after another session under the surgeon’s knife, he went to the US for a second opinion and yet more surgery. “When I eventually went to America to get it fixed, they couldn’t believe what the Scottish surgeon had done to my knee in terms of how he had rebuilt it.”The midfielder, rated as one of the brightest prospects in Scottish football, continued to battle back to fitness and eventually made his Rangers return in 1991, when around 30,000 fans turned up to Ibrox to watch him play in a reserve match. It’s a testament to his character that he returned at all, but Durrant never shone as brightly again. “I was never going to be the same player,” he reflected later.“I went from being a runner breaking the lines to being more of a passing player. My whole game changed. I never had the spark that I used to have. I lost a few yards, which was a big part of my game. I had to adapt and use my left foot more than I did because of my injury. I was predominantly right footed. All I did in training was kick the ball with my left foot.”Durrant went on to win major honours after his comeback and starred in Rangers’ memorable European Cup run in the 1992-93 season. Having been robbed of almost three years of his career, he sued Simpson for £2m and later accepted an out-of-court settlement reported to be around £350,000. It is hard not to think of what might have been though. Graeme Souness Topics Chelsea should try to sign Thorgan Hazard – especially if Eden leaves Share on Pinterest There was one certainty surrounding the whole affair: the uneasy relationship between the two clubs was now at the point of no return. Willie Johnston’s stamp on John McMaster in 1980, the rise of Aberdeen as title rivals, and Rangers’ resurgence under Souness all combined to add to the growing tension between the two clubs. The Simpson challenge on Durrant is often seen as the tipping point.With some Aberdeen fans singing about the tackle on Durrant and the two clubs continuing to contest for major honours at the end of the 1980s and into the early 1990s, there was no chance of the bitterness evaporating. The rivalry is still very much alive three decades on from that fateful day.• This article appeared first on That 1980s Sports Blog• Follow Steven Pye on Twitter Share on Facebook Reuse this content features Rangers manager Graeme Souness was furious about the challenge. Photograph: Getty Images Share on Twitter Share on Messenger Life was pretty good for Rangers fans at the start of the 1988-89 season. Seven wins out of eight in the Premier Division – including a 5-1 destruction of Celtic, who had won the title by finishing 12 points ahead of them the previous season – had catapulted Graeme Souness’s team to the top of the league.Rangers did suffer their first league defeat on 8 October, but that in itself was no disaster. Their loss at Pittodrie to an unbeaten Aberdeen side was hardly a shock. However, the events of that afternoon would have far-reaching consequences for some of the players involved and both sets of fans.With the emergence of Aberdeen as a force in Scottish football under Alex Ferguson, a rivalry developed between the two clubs – emphasised by two fiery matches in 1985 – and the antipathy showed little sign of abating when Souness arrived on the scene.The landscape of Scottish football was shifting; Ferguson had departed in 1986 and Souness, backed heavily in the transfer market, was delivering success to Rangers once more. Their great start to the 1988-89 season was the beginning of Rangers’ run to nine titles in a row. Share via Email Rangers Facebook Scottish Premiershiplast_img read more

Ohio State Fans Will Love Dwayne Haskins’ New Tweet

(Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images)On Saturday, Dwayne Haskins had to watch Kyler Murray win the Heisman Trophy. This afternoon, the Ohio State quarterback learned that he wasn’t named to the AP All-America team.For some inexplainable reason, the unquestioned leader of the Buckeyes isn’t receiving the respect he deserves. Coming into this season Ohio State was loaded with controversy, but Haskins never let that affect him or the offense.His record-breaking season included 4,580 passing yards and 47 touchdowns. Regardless of the inconsistent play on defense for Ohio State, Haskins always had his team fighting until the final whistle.Instead of letting this latest news get to his head, the star quarterback will use it as yet another motivation tactic.Keep adding fuel to my fire. #ScaryHours https://t.co/AynqMwxn7A— Dwayne Haskins, Jr? (@dh_simba7) December 10, 2018This is bad news for the Washington Huskies, as they’ll face the Buckeyes in the Rose Bowl.Eventually Haskins will have to decide whether he’ll enter the 2019 NFL Draft or not, but until then he can continue to dismantle opposing NCAA defenses.Haskins might not finish with the accolades that Murray or Tua Tagovailoa have, yet that doesn’t mean he won’t succeed at the next level. If New Year’s Day will be his last college appearance, then fans should expect one more star performance from arguably the best quarterback in the nation.last_img read more

(Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)Once upon a time, Ole Miss was one of the most dangerous games on Alabama’s annual schedule. Under Hugh Freeze, the Rebels picked up back-to-back wins in the SEC West rivalry in 2014 and 2015.Alabama remains one of college football’s elite programs. With Freeze ousted amid scandal, and the NCAA hitting the program with violations, the Rebels haven’t had the same success maintaining the program that the now-Liberty head coach built.In Freeze’s final year, Alabama won 48-43 in Oxford. In the two years since, the Tide have won by a combined score of 128 to 10.The game returns to Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa this weekend. Ole Miss will try to close the gap a bit, but based on the early betting line, an Alabama rout is still very much the expected outcome.

The Crimson Tide may have some serious competition at the top of the league.Even if they drop a game, like the often-tricky Iron Bowl against Auburn, Alabama would be favored to make it to the College Football Playoff yet again. In that event ESPN‘s Football Power Index gives ‘Bama a 78-percent chance of making the four-team field, which it has never missed.Just a few years ago, we learned that ‘Bama has the ability to make the Playoff even without appearing in the SEC title game.Ole Miss is 2-2 to start the year, but it has had to contend with a pretty tough opening stretch.

March Madness Starts With The Nike 2015 Hyper Elite Jerseys

first_img The Best Graphic Tee Companies to Liven Up Your Wardrobe NCAA March Madness is just a few short weeks away. That means you’re going to have to get ready for the office bracket competition, save a sick day or two so you can catch all the action during the opening week, and perhaps alienate a loved one or two as you attempt to watch approximately 100 hours of basketball in eleven days.It also means that Nike is unveiling their Hyper Elite uniforms in preparation of the 2015 NCAA Tournament. Now, sometimes, special edition college basketball jerseys can turn out a little, let’s say dicey—but that is not the case with Nike’s Hyper Elite line. These uniforms are simple and refined (yes, this writer certainly does think a college basketball jersey can be refined!).The home jerseys for each team features a solid white base with the school-specific colors and the iconic logo across the side of each short. The angle of each school’s graphic is set at 26 degrees, which was inspired by the chevron on the classic Nike Windrunner track jacket that debuted in 1978. That fact, and the overall clean design, gives this year’s Hyper Elite collection a timeless look. But these jerseys aren’t throwbacks—the V-neck design is a departure from the old-school rounded collar and armholes. There is a flocked lining inside the neck that makes for quick and easy sweat removal. The ultra-lightweight stretch mesh in the jerseys back aids in temperature regulation along the spine, which is where athletes tend to heat up the most. Plus, Nike has redeveloped the lightweight sphere fabric in the front of the jersey to further maintain a comfortable body temperature by wicking moisture while eliminating cling from excess sweat.Related: Talking March Madness with Villanova’s Jay WrightThis year, the Hyper Elite men’s collection includes the University of Kentucky (the favorites to win the tournament), Duke University (the team expected to give Kentucky the biggest challenge), University of Arizona (another possible contender), Syracuse University, University of Florida, and University of Oregon (right in Nike’s backyard). The women’s collection includes perennial powerhouses Baylor University and the University of Connecticut, so those of you out there with a Lady Bear or Lady Huskie in your life can pick up a jersey for your girl.March is the most wonderful time of year for college sports fans. Whether you’re a proud alumnus or just looking for a little extra good luck in your bracket, get into the spirit of March Madness with Nike Hyper Elite college basketball jerseys.Photos courtesy of Nike.

UN agencies present plan to bring essential medicines to children

The World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) held a joint meeting in Geneva last week, where experts formed a strategy to expand access to child-focused formulations and improve the medicines and prescribing guidelines for the entire range of infant and child care needs.”Children are often hailed as the hope and future of humanity, but they don’t benefit enough from pharmaceutical research and technology,” said Dr Howard Zucker, Assistant-Director General at the World Health Organization (WHO). Some 10 million children die every year, many of them from diarrhoea, HIV/AIDS, malaria, respiratory tract infection or pneumonia. Effective treatments for these illnesses exist, but there is a lack of knowledge of how best to use such medicines in children, as well as a lack of paediatric formulations.Under the plan, UNICEF’s supply division said it would work with industry to promote the development of paediatric formulations for HIV/AIDS medications. It also promised to work towards painless remedies, better-tasting medications and new mini-tablets to treat other diseases, as well as to emphasize the importance of climate zone considerations in creating and distributing new formulations.The WHO’s Director for Medicines Policy and Standards, Hans Hogerzeil, said the agency would work towards ameliorating the cost of many medicines, especially “for children in resource-poor settings where there is enormous need.” read more

Weeklong Break No Problem for Helper Merchants

Photos by Jeff Barrett After a week off, the Helper Merchants were back on the diamond Monday where they faced Pleasant Grove. Nathan Richens took the mound and threw a complete game for Helper. He gave up four runs on seven hits through seven innings.“He did a good job for us after coming off the weeklong break. Nathan is always consistent on the mound for us, I always know what I am going to get from him,” said head coach Dakota Cisneros. “He’s not going to over power teams, but he throws a lot of strikes and keeps our defense involved. That is all I ask from our pitchers.”Richens picked up the win as the Merchants were able to push eight runs across in the contest for the 8-4 victory.In the bottom of the sixth, with the game still close, Helper had a 6-4 lead. Rylan Hart came to the plate and hit a two-run single to cash in some insurance runs for the Merchants. Hart went 2-4 while Anthony Jones also added a pair of RBIs in the match. Ty Anderson went 3-4 with a double and two runs scored.“Overall, we played good baseball. Not as good as we’ve played previously this season, but I expected us to be rusty after having a week off,” continued Cisneros.The Merchants have a double header in Springville on Wednesday and then will be back home on Thursday to take on Herriman at 6 p.m. Cisneros concluded, “There are still things we need to work on and we need to get back to playing Helper Merchant baseball. [But] our goal for the week is four wins, so this was a positive step towards that.” read more

Field Hockey Missed opportunities come back to haunt Ohio State in 21

Credit: Lantern File PhotoA late rally by Ohio State (2-1) in the second half wasn’t enough to make up for early missed opportunities as the Buckeyes suffered their first loss of the season Tuesday to Kent State (2-4), 2-1.Coming into the match, both teams had faced Louisville in their last respective matches. Ohio State beat the Cardinals 2-0, while Kent State was blown out in a 5-1 loss.Ohio State got off to a quick start, dominating possession by forcing turnovers and connecting on several challenging passes.Early in the first half, the Buckeyes defended Kent State’s breakaway opportunity well, but it still helped the Golden Flashes gain momentum for the first time in the game.That surge in momentum led to Kent State’s first score as back Jamie Fries was able to find the back of the net with 16:02 left in the half.Senior forward Maddy Humphrey tied the game at one goal apiece as she scored, knocking the ball over the head of the goalie nearly five minutes later. As time was expiring, the Buckeyes had a corner opportunity and failed to convert, as they hit the ball off the post.Ohio State began the second half with a breakaway six minutes in but it was well-defended by Kent State to prevent a go-ahead goal. Evenly matched for the first 10 minutes in the second half, the Buckeyes were given a corner opportunity at the 23:50 mark and the Golden Flashes denied Ohio State the opportunity as the ball bounced past the net and out of play.With nine minutes to go, Kent State had a two-on-zero breakaway opportunity, but a pass was just out of the reach of the diving stick from a Golden Flashes player, preventing the potential goal.Kent State drew a pair of corner opportunities with just under five minutes left to take a 2-1 lead, thanks to the goal by senior Ines Delpech. Ohio State came short on three straight corner opportunities late in the second half ultimately giving Kent State the 2-1 victory. read more

Ohio State womens volleyball hits the road looking to continue winning ways

OSU won, 3-1.Credit: Mark Batke / Lantern photographerOnce in the midst of an eight-match losing streak, the Ohio State women’s volleyball team’s fortune has taken a turn for the better.The Buckeyes are fresh off two statement victories: a sweep of Indiana and a four-set win against then-No. 14 Purdue.While the team is still unranked, the Buckeyes will have to remain focused as they hit the road for matches against two ranked opponents this weekend.OSU is scheduled to face off against No. 11 Minnesota in Minneapolis at 8 p.m. Friday, before heading to Madison, Wis., for a date with No. 14 Wisconsin at 2 p.m. Sunday.Freshman setter Maggie Heim said the team has to remain focused and disciplined, especially on the road.“These are going to be two huge crowds,” she said. “So staying intent on what we need to get done, what we’re there for (will be important).”Both teams have topped OSU at home this season. The then-No.19 Badgers topped the Buckeyes 3-2 Oct. 11 in Columbus while No. 11 Minnesota swept OSU on its home court the following night. Those were also the first two losses of OSU’s eight-match losing streak.Senior outside hitter Kaitlyn Leary said it will be important to focus on the Golden Gophers first because OSU cannot afford to overlook any Big Ten team.“Minnesota is just a really good team, so we have to play hard,” she said. “(Last) weekend, I think we played well as a team together, so we’ll have to do that.”Leary added Wisconsin will be just as ready for the Buckeyes, since the teams have already played this season.“Obviously, we know more about them, they know more about us now,” she said. “Whatever the coaches set for our game plan, we need to follow that and just play together as a team.”Leary leads the Big Ten this season with 476 kills, followed by freshman middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe’s 225.Sandbothe was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week after tallying a combined 26 kills against Indiana and Purdue.“It’s a huge honor, to get Big Ten Freshman of the Week,” Sandbothe said. “It’s just really humbling, the fact that I have a big impact on this team.”The challenge facing OSU is finding a way to stop Minnesota senior middle blocker Tori Dixon, who is sixth in the Big Ten in average kills per set and is tied for third in blocks per set, if it wants to win Friday.“We’re going to try to get four hands on her every time,” senior defensive specialist Julianne Mandolfo said about Dixon. “She’s going to get her kills, but if we minimize them, then I think we put ourselves in a very good position to win the game.”No matter how many kills Dixon gets, the Buckeyes will have to turn around and face Wisconsin Sunday before making their way back to Columbus. OSU is scheduled to return home Nov. 22 for a match against No. 25 Illinois. read more

Four Tesco stores vote to join strike six vote against

first_imgFour Tesco stores vote to join strike, six vote against From Monday, 20 stores will be subject to industrial action. By Paul Hosford Tuesday 21 Feb 2017, 11:41 AM Share100 Tweet Email Image: RollingNews.ie Image: RollingNews.ie 90 Comments Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article http://jrnl.ie/3250478 Short URL FOUR MORE TESCO stores have voted to join strikes taking place across the company.Last night workers at Ballinasloe, Bloomfield, Carlow and Newbridge stores voted to strike in response to changes to contracts which will affect 250 workers.From Monday, 20 stores will be subject to industrial action. A further 13 stores will be balloting over the next two nights.However, six of the ten stores balloted rejected strike action. A statement from the company welcomed the ballots in the Ashbourne, Lucan, Westport, Killarney Park, Killarney Street and Middleton stores.“Mandate’s actions are impacting on our colleagues including through its calls for customers to shop at non-union stores.Mandate’s irresponsible refusal to accept the Labour Court Recommendation remains at the heart of this dispute. We believe the Mandate leadership should have endorsed the outcome of the State industrial relations processes, which both Tesco and Mandate jointly agreed to utilise to resolve the pre-1996 changes.For their part, Mandate said that staff had suffered “scare tactics” prior to the votes.No doubt this intense pressure by management had an impact on the votes of some workers, but the union congratulates all those who withstood the pressure and balloted to protect all contracts of employment in Tesco Ireland.“Nonetheless, we fully respect the democratic decisions made by all members and the strike will get underway next Monday in four additional stores as will continue in the 16 stores where it is currently underway.”Tesco yesterday claimed that 45,000 people had crossed the picket lines to shop in stores where action is ongoing.Read: Tesco claims 45,000 people shopped at stores picketed by strikers 27,579 Views Feb 21st 2017, 11:41 AM last_img read more
