The Legendary Nikos Galis Inducted into Basketball Hall of Fame


first_imgBy Gregory J. StamosNikos Galis, a member of the AHEPA Hellenic Athletic Hall of Fame, Class of 2013, on September 8, 2017 reached the highest honor a basketball player, College, Professional or Amateur, can attain: induction into the Naismith Memorial International Basketball Hall of Fame, in Springfield, Massachusetts. Galis, the greatest basketball player in Greek basketball history and one of the top European players of all time, was recognized for his brilliance in the International arena, most notably leading the Greek National Team to its iconic capture of the 1987 European Championship, by its defeat of Russia, a game in which Galis was named Most Valuable Player, after leading Greece with 44 points.Galis, born in New York and raised in Union City, New Jersey, the son of two Greek immigrants, starred for Seton Hall University from 1975-1979. In 1979, his senior season, he averaged 27.5 points per game, the third highest scoring average in the Nation, behind only Idaho State’s Lawrence Butler and the great Indiana State University Larry Bird. That season Galis won the Haggerty Award as the New York Metropolitan Area’s Men’s College Basketball Player of the Year, and was drafted by the Boston Celtics of the National Basketball Association. Having suffering an injury during the Celtics’ training camp, however, Galis elected to play professionally in Greece, the land of his ancestors, notwithstanding never having been in Greece before nor even being aware that there was a professional basketball league in Greece. Legend has it that Red Auerbach, the Celtics’ revered Coach and General Manager, said that, in retrospect, “the biggest mistake of my career was not signing Galis.”Galis embarked on a storied fourteen-year professional career and is now considered Greece’s top all-time athlete. As a member of the Aris (Thessaloniki) Professional Club, he won eight Greek League Championships and appeared three times in the European Club Championship Final Four. Then, after his move to Panathanaikos (Athens), Nick led his team to a fourth trip to the European Final Four. Galis topped the Greek League in scoring eleven times and was its all-time leading scorer with an average of 33.4 points per game, and led the National Team, in 168 games, with a 30.5 average. His individual scoring records were 62 points in the Greek League, 57 points in European Club competition and 53 points with the Greek National Team versus Panama in 1986. He was voted the top European player in 1987.In the Athens Olympic Games in 2004, Galis was the first Olympic Torch Bearer to enter the Stadium at the Opening Ceremony. In 2007, he was inducted into the FIBA Hall of Fame. Thereafter, in 2013, in a nationally televised induction ceremony, the Thessaloniki “Alexandriou Sports Palace” was renamed “Nick Galis Hall” and in 2016, the Greek government named the indoor basketball court at the Athens Olympics Sports Complex “Nick Galis Court.”Galis was inducted into the Naismith Hall of Fame along with former NBA stars George McGinnis and Tracy McGrady, WNBA and UCONN college basketball star Rebecca Lobo, Notre Dame University Women’s Coach Muffin McGraw, and Kansas University Men’s Coach Bill Self. His video presentation included praise by NBA greats Vlade Divac, Detlef Schrempf, and Tony Kukoc. In his acceptance speech, Galis thanked all of his high school, college, and Greek National team teammates and coaches, but especially singled out the Greek fans, worldwide, for their support. He indicated that his greatest decision was to elect to play in Greece, which became “his people and his country.” Nick Galis and Gregory Stamos on the Hall of Fame stage following his induction with NBA great Bob McAdoo. Photo courtesy of Gregory StamosHe noted how proud he was that his athletic success had galvanized and even united the entire nation of Hellas, with Greeks flooding the streets late into the night celebrating the dramatic victory over Russia in 1987, which propelled Greece onto the international basketball stage.Galis had been selected to the AHEPA Athletic Hellenic Hall of Fame in 2013, but was unable to attend the National Convention to receive his award due to running his basketball camp in Greece at that time. He elected to not have his Hall of Fame plaque and medallion mailed to him, in the hope that he would be able to personally receive it at some later point in time, and prior to the Naismith induction ceremony, Gregory Stamos, Chairman of the AHEPA Hall of Fame Selection Committee, presented Galis with his 2013 AHEPA Athletic Hall of Fame plaque and medallion, compelling Nick to note, with a smile, “I’m not sure which means more to me, these, or my International Hall of Fame trophy.”Gregory Stamos presenting Nick Galis with the AHEPA Hall of Fame Plaque after Nick received his International Hall of Fame Jacket.

Ministry proposes IOA relaxation in selection norms for Asian Games


first_imgNew Delhi, Jul 18 (PTI) The Sports Ministry today intervened in the controversy surrounding team selection for the upcoming Asian Games, asking the Indian Olympic Association to reassess the criteria laid down by it and consider “specific relaxation of selection norms”. In the letter written to IOA President Narinder Batra, the ministry said that athletes and teams may be cleared if there is a strong possibility of either winning a medal in the Asian Games or finishing in the top four. The IOA had said that it followed the criteria of top six finish in individual events and top eight in team sports for selection in the Indian contingent for the Asian Games. The IOA’s criteria were akin to a circular of the ministry issued in 2015 for selection of team for multi-sporting events. “This Ministry has framed those guidelines for sending entries of athletes/teams for participation in multidisciplinary events like the Asian Games (on March 10, 2015). However, of late, there has been concerns raised from various quarters … that many deserving sportspersons/teams are not able to participate due to their inability to meet the above guidelines because of various reasons, inter-alia, due to less exposure in tournaments, restrictive spread, etc,” the Ministry said in the letter. “Accordingly, a view has emerged in this Ministry that specific relaxation of the norms prescribed may be considered by this Ministry purely on merits to allow sending of entries of teams/athletes for such sports disciplines which are otherwise not eligible for participation in the Asian Games, 2018, to be held in Indonesia in the larger interest of sports and sportspersons,” it added.advertisement The Ministry said the IOA, in consultation with the concerned National Sports Federations, may reassess the decisions taken by them for sending entries of teams for the Asian Games. “… (they) may reassess the decisions taken by them and send their recommendations, if any in respect of sports disciplines which are not eligible for participation in the Asian Games, but can be considered for participation in light of the fact that individual athlete/team, performing consistently well during the last six months, but couldn’t qualify due to lack of enough exposure or participation in ranking events and hence has a strong possibility of either winning a medal in Asian Games or finishing in top four. “Based on the recommendations of the IOA, the Ministry may consider including sports discipline(s)/athletes as part of the Indian contingent for the Asian Games 2018,” the ministry said. A top IOA official said the top brass will meet in a day or two to take a decision on the ministry proposal. “We have received the ministry letter and we will have a meeting tomorrow or day after. It is late to make further recommendations, nonetheless we will take a decision on the ministry proposal. Even if we do something, everything will now depend on whether the Asian Games Organising Committee will accept it or not,” the official told PTI. Official sources in the ministry said that the proposal was made as the government wanted performing athletes to take part in the Asian Games. “But the judgement is left to the IOA and the NSFs,” the source said on condition of anonymity. “In 2015 and even earlier, such guidelines were issued to NSFs where criterion of 6th place in individual and and 8th for team were proposed. This time, more flexibility was provided by the clause that even if the athlete or the team does not meet the criterion but the NSF is convinced of top 4 finish, then they can propose them for selection with well laid down justification,” the source added. The IOA had announced a 524-member contingent earlier this month but it was not without controversy beginning from the leaving out of football, to the dropping of the entire four-member triathlon team for furnishing “misleading information”. The IOA then dropped 20 athletes from the Pencak Silat team, alleging fake credentials, prompting the national federation to threaten legal action. The men’s handball team was cleared after the federation knocked the doors of Allahabad High Court. In the original squad announced by IOA, six Sambo athletes – two male and four female – were included but the number was then cut down to just one. PTI PDS PDS ATKATKlast_img read more

Dream come true for Pandya brothers as they play together for India for first time


first_imgAll-rounders Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya are playing together for the first time in international cricket as the brothers have been selected in the Indian team’s playing XI in the first Twenty20 International against New Zealand in Wellington on Wednesday.Hardik and Krunal have become the third set of brothers to play together for India, joining Amarnath and Pathan brothers in achieving the feat. Mohinder and Surinder Amarnath played three ODIs together while Irfan and Yusuf Pathan played in 8 ODIs and as many T20Is together.Hardik and Krunal regularly feature for Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League.Krunal had made his T20I debut against West Indies in November last year. However, Hardik had to miss that series because of a back injury he suffered during the Asia Cup in September last year.In Hardik’s absence, Krunal did not disappoint as he helped India sweep the three-match series. Krunal was also part of the drawn T20I series against Australia in November 2018.Meanwhile, India won the toss and opted to bowl in the first T20I against New Zealand.”We’re bowling first. We have had a good record chasing. Gives us another opportunity to see how well we can bat second. Looks like a good pitch, as we saw in the game earlier so we are looking to set a target. Like I said on the 5th ODI, we wanted to bat first as there was some moisture on the pitch and challenge our batsmen. We managed to get a win. A lot of the guys who have played ODIs have gone back. A few guys like Rishabh and Krunal are back and we need to give them some chances, so it is important to give them a chance as well in the overseas conditions and see how they fare,” India’s stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma said at the toss.advertisementRishabh Pant has also been included in the playing XI along with all-rounder Vijay Shankar. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Khaleel Ahmed form India’s pace-bowling attack while Yuzvendra Chahal and Krunal will provide the spin options.The second T20 of the three-match series will be played in Auckland on February 8.Also Read | Case registered against Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul for comments on Koffee with KaranAlso Read | Pandya brothers chill out with MS Dhoni over a meal in New Zealandlast_img read more

Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action


first_imgPremier League 10Everton29037 14Newcastle29-1031 Play Video Play Video 11Leicester29-635 8) Brendan Rodgers takes sting out of Leicester fans’ ireAs confected rivalries go, the one that has sprung up between Leicester and the serial Scottish champions takes some beating. “We all hate Celtic” was one of the chants that emanated from the away end at Vicarage Road, presumably in response to the “mediocrity” charge levelled by sections of the Glasgow club’s support. One suspects Brendan Rodgers would prefer both sides to turn it down and he was suitably conciliatory after his new side’s 2-1 defeat. “It was sad, obviously, to leave Celtic and the quickness of everything … I didn’t have the chance to say goodbye to lots of people that meant a lot to me. I knew Celtic supporters were hurting and I’m never going to be critical of them, I understand how they feel. But they had a good result yesterday [2-0 at Hibernian] and we’ll both move on.” The dust will surely settle in good time although a pre-season friendly is presumably off the agenda for the foreseeable future. Nick Ames• Match report: Watford 2-1 Leicester 3) Michy Batshuayi’s arrival has led to more freedom for ZahaCrystal Palace are the latest beneficiaries of Chelsea’s buy‑to‑let schemes. In putting his latest loan team 2-0 up at Burnley, Michy Batshuayi scored his second goal in three matches having been redirected from Valencia. Palace struggled for goals for the first half of the season while Roy Hodgson could not call upon a serviceable striker. Batshuayi has added cutting edge and thrust to help Palace pull away from the bottom three. His arrival has coincided with the revival of – and greater freedom for – Wilfried Zaha, who scored a superb goal at Turf Moor having previously contributed to Phil Bardsley putting through his own net. Maurizio Sarri is the second successive Chelsea manager to turn his nose up at Batshuayi after Antonio Conte, but with Álvaro Morata borrowed by Atlético Madrid and Gonzalo Higuaín lacking sharpness, the Belgian, despite his unpredictability, might have been a useful wild card. John Brewin• Match report: Burnley 1-3 Crystal Palace4) Lack of away goals the biggest worry for Jürgen KloppIt is impossible to consider Liverpool’s recent form without using the B-word. Yes, a run of four draws in six league games is undeniably a blip. And, while there are worrying signs, it would be premature to use the other B-word. Teams have overcome far worse dips in form during the run-in to win the title, and nobody really knows whether Liverpool are bottling it or not. Their problem is easy to recognise and harder to resolve. They have stopped scoring away from home, with only three goals in the last five league games away from Anfield. The defence is still watertight, with Virgil van Dijk strolling through a nervous title race with a resting heart rate, and that is vital because it means one goal will be enough to win most games. With Roberto Firmino subdued for most of the season and Mo Salah not at his best, it might be time for Jürgen Klopp to think about temporarily breaking up the front three. Whatever he does tactically, one thing’s for sure: in the next two months, his considerable man-management skills are going to be tested like never before. Rob Smyth• Match report: Everton 0-0 Liverpool 9) Newcastle’s Miguel Almirón needs more timeNewcastle would be particularly ill-served by a drop-off in form now given the reluctance of Rafael Benítez to consider his future until they are safe. Their insipid defeat at West Ham felt like a rude awakening after a major uptick over the previous month; it was a reminder, too, that their record signing Miguel Almirón will not be able to solve everything. Almirón was painfully quiet, and comfortably outshone by West Ham’s Felipe Anderson and Manuel Lanzini. He will have days like this because, when all is said and done, the leap from Atlanta United and the Major League Soccer to England’s top flight is gigantic. “Of course, people need to be patient,” his teammate Isaac Hayden said. “You can see his talent and what he brings, but to do it on a consistent basis in the Premier League is a completely different thing. Realistically this is his pre-season still.” It was difficult to argue and Benítez may need more seasoned heads to see Newcastle over the line. Nick Ames• Match report: West Ham 2-0 Newcastle10) Raúl Jiménez has earned the right to a permanent dealQuite how influential and impressive Raúl Jiménez has been in his debut season in the Premier League seems to have gone a little unnoticed outside Wolverhampton. That might be good news for Nuno Espírito Santo as Wolves can trigger a €38m (£30m) option to sign the forward permanently from Benfica this summer, providing all parties agree to the switch. That fee for the Mexican, who has scored 11 goals and set up six more in the league, increasingly looks a snip. Jiménez, who possesses poise as well as power, again led the line imperiously alongside Diogo Jota as Wolves comfortably dispatched Cardiff to maintain their hopes of European football. Outside the top six, Jiménez is the division’s leading scorer. He can seemingly do it all; play the role of a battering ram, link play, pick out others and, most importantly, score.

The club have accepted as much, with Scott Parker acknowledging there will be a period of restructuring in the summer. “Clubs change when they are relegated,” he said. “You go from the best league in the world, with all its billions of pounds, to the Championship.” Yet what is clear, even from a solitary glimpse of a Parker team, is Fulham will go down playing a brand of football more in keeping with the reputation forged while rising from the second tier. They were slick and adventurous for periods here, with some of those who had secured promotion revived by the caretaker manager’s presence. “I wouldn’t want to do it any other way,” Parker said when asked about reclaiming this team’s identity. “If someone from above told me to do something else, I’d have to say to them: ‘I’m not your guy,’ and wouldn’t carry on.” This whole campaign has been an anticlimax. Yet Fulham can still go out in style. Dominic Fifield• Match report: Fulham 1-2 Chelsea 2:32 7Wolverhampton29243 1:32 4Man Utd292058 Topics 1) Bournemouth’s negativity only earns them a slow deathHow do you deal with Manchester City? Take them on? Or get 11 players behind the ball and hang on for grim life. It was certainly a curious game at Bournemouth on Saturday – if you can call it a game. Eddie Howe’s side lost narrowly, 1-0, but it is hard to think of a more misleading scoreline. Bournemouth became the first club since Opta has been gathering data to fail to register a shot on or off target in a Premier League match. The home team never even won a corner. Kyle Walker, Manchester City’s right‑back, completed more passes than the entire Bournemouth team, who had 18% of possession. Howe admitted afterwards that he feared the consequences if Bournemouth opened up against City and he probably had a point. The alternative, however, is a slow death by 810 passes and that is a fairly joyless experience too. Stuart James• Match report: Bournemouth 0-1 Manchester City2) Jahanbakhsh shows promise of goals for BrightonIt has not been easy for Alireza Jahanbakhsh to adapt to the Premier League during his first year in England, but the Iran international showed he can be a threat in Brighton’s vital win against Huddersfield. Jahanbakhsh was Brighton’s most enterprising player after being handed his fourth league start of the season, and he was unfortunate to be taken off moments before Florin Andone’s late winner. The 25‑year‑old winger, who has struggled since his £17m move from AZ Alkmaar, could have scored twice and will feel he played well enough to keep José Izquierdo on the bench when Chris Hughton’s side visit Crystal Palace this weekend. “I am hoping we are going to see more,” Hughton said. “He is a goalscorer and that is why we brought him in. You like to think that with Alireza in the team we can get more goals.” Jacob Steinberg• Match report: Brighton 1-0 Huddersfield Bournemouth 16Burnley29-2130 Crystal Palace 2Liverpool294970 3Tottenham Hotspur292661 Burnley Share on Twitter 20Huddersfield29-3614 Share on LinkedIn 6) Southampton goalscorers impress even Ole Gunnar SolskjærReports of David de Gea’s decline have almost certainly been exaggerated, even if the goalkeeper was beaten twice by shots from outside the area at Old Trafford. That sounds damning, though you have to see the quality of the shots before coming to any conclusion. Even though De Gea got his hands to the first one from Yan Valery it was so powerfully struck he was still unable to keep it out of the net. The second, a free kick by James Ward-Prowse, was so perfectly executed the goalkeeper could not get near it. Even Ole Gunnar Solskjær was impressed by the visitors’ goals. “Their two goals, wow!” United’s caretaker manager said. “Two strikes of real quality.” Naturally Ralph Hasenhüttl agreed. “Valery is like Prowsey, they are both in fantastic shape in defence and attack. We scored two marvellous goals,” he said. Paul Wilson• Match report: Manchester United 3-2 Southampton7) Henrikh Mkhitaryan makes up for lost time with fine displayThere has been so much focus on a certain mercurial attacking player at Arsenal that most people have forgotten about the other one. It has been just over a year since Henrikh Mkhitaryan joined the club from Manchester United and it is safe to say his career in north London has yet to catch fire. Injuries have played their part but there has also been a string of indifferent displays from someone who not long ago was viewed as being among the finest talents in Europe. Mkhitaryan was in danger of losing his way, but then came his display against Tottenham. The Armenian was excellent, providing drive in attack as well as cover in defence. Unai Emery praised the player afterwards while also pointing out that “usually he can’t [consistently work] for 90 minutes”. But there was certainly more than enough on show to suggest Mkhitaryan, unlike Mesut Özil, has the all-round requirements to fit into the Spaniard’s plans.

The World’s Most Beautiful Cemeteries Worth Traveling to See (Seriously)


first_img The Best Whiskey Quotes of All Time Cemeteries hardly seem like “destination-worthy” tourist attractions. But, some are so beautiful, strange, or downright fascinating that visitors flock to them by the tens or hundreds of thousands each year. It’s not surprising when you consider it’s a lot more fun to visit a cemetery as a “tombstone tourist” when you’re actually, you know, alive. With that in mind, here are four of the world’s best cemeteries worth traveling to see.Bonaventure CemeterySavannah, GeorgiaBonaventure Historical SocietyCharleston aside, few cities nail the spooky-beautiful-charming Southern vibe like Savannah, Georgia. Nowhere is this more evident than in the city’s Bonaventure Cemetery. Stands of massive, centuries-old live oak trees draped in Spanish moss canopy the historic burial grounds which are perched on a scenic bluff overlooking the Wilmington River. The 100 acres here include significant tombstones, sculpture gardens, and Southern Gothic monuments. Plus, the cemetery has appeared in numerous Hollywood flicks including Clint Eastwood’s Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. If you’re into that sort of thing …Panteón Antiguo de XoxocotlánOaxaca, MéxicoGreg Willis/FlickrFew cultural ceremonies honor the dead like Mexico’s Dia de los Muertos. There’s no better place in the world to experience the annual celebration than Panteón Antiguo de Xoxocotlán. There’s a simple, undeniable beauty in the grounds of this Oaxacan cemetery. Every October 31, thousands of locals gather here, pushing wheelbarrows full of fresh pink and orange flowers. As part of their annual Day of the Dead tradition, they clean the graves of their loved ones, light votive candles, quietly sing songs, and sip mezcal to honor the dearly departed. Photos are allowed, provided you’re respectful and ask beforehand.The Merry CemeterySapânta, RomaniaWikimedia CommonsEastern Europeans aren’t known for their sparkling senses of humor. But, clearly, the one thing they don’t take too seriously is death. The Merry Cemetery is Romania’s bizarre and oddly charming take on the more traditional — and, let’s face it, boring — burial ground. Here, the more than 600 tombstones feature colorful artwork, revealing limericks, and light-hearted poems about the deceased. Most provide a darkly humorous take on the vices or manner of death of those buried within. From one, in particular: “Ioan Toaderu loved horses. One more thing he loved very much. To sit at a table in a bar. Next to someone else’s wife.” Hilarious.Okunoin CemeteryMount Koya, JapanWikimedia CommonsMount Koya is considered ground zero for the Shingon sect of Japanese Buddhism. Situated in a stunning valley, the compound has expanded over the last 1,200 years to encompass 100 temples. Hundreds of thousands pilgrimage here each year to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site. That the complex’s Okunoin Cemetery is the largest cemetery in Japan is an impressive enough reason to visit. But, it’s also the final resting place (emphasis on “resting” as practicing Japanese Buddhists do not believe him to be dead) of Kobo Daishi — the famed founder of Shingon Buddhism. The grave markers at this massive cemetery neatly line the paths leading to his grave site. Perhaps most interesting, however, is the sheer number of surprisingly “playful” tombstones. There are those in the shape of coffee cups, spaceships, and even a memorial from an insect removal company dedicated to the death of its “victims.” All 21 Six Flags Parks in the U.S., Ranked The Best Drinks to Pair With Your Favorite Food Shows Runners, Say Goodbye to Chafing with Path Projects Running Shorts 11 Best Gins for a Refreshing Gin and Tonic Editors’ Recommendations last_img read more

SJVN investing Rs 7000 crore in Bhakra Dam of Nepal


first_imgShimla: Sutlej Jal Vidyut Nigam (SJVN) is investing about Rs 7,000 crore in power generation and transmission in Nepal, a top company official said on Saturday. The amount, which is equivalent to 11,200 crore Nepalese rupees, is the highest ever invested so far in Nepal by any company in the world, SJVN Chairman and Managing Director (CMD) Nand Lal Sharma said. A joint venture of the Government of India and the Himachal Pradesh government, SJVN is investing Rs 5,724 crore in power generation and Rs 1,236 crore in power transmission in Nepal, Sharma told reporters.

Work for Arun-3 HEP began on full swing after Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Nepalese counterpart Khadga Prasad Sharma Oli jointly laid its foundation stone on May 11, 2018. It will be commissioned in 2023-24, he added. The Arun-3 HEP is as prestigious for Nepal as Bhakra Dam is for India as the power generation capacity of the Himalayan country will more than double after its commissioning, he added.

The power evacuation system for the project consists of a 217-km long 400 KV double circuit transmission line from Diding (project area) in Nepal to Dhalkebar (Nepal border), he added. SJVN will get back the invested money with profit after selling the power for 25 years, he added. Meanwhile, SJVN’s earning per share increased by 50 paise in the last financial year, Sharma said. SJVN’s earning per share of face value of Rs 10 has increased to Rs 3.47 in 2018-19 from Rs 2.97 in 2017-18, Informing about SJVN’s financial achievements discussed in its annual general meeting (AGM) held on Friday, Sharma said the company’s total income rose by 12 per cent to Rs 2,909 crore in 2018-19, from Rs 2,587 crore in 2017-18. Similarly, profit after tax climbed 11.5 per cent to RS 1,364 crore in 2018-19, from Rs 1,224 crore in the previous fiscal.last_img read more

New Delhi Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has


first_imgNew Delhi: Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has been fielded again from Karnal as the BJP announced on Monday names of its 78 candidates for October 21 assembly polls in Haryana where the saffron party is seeking to retain power. The party has given tickets to a number of noted sportspersons who had joined it in recent weeks with wrestler Babita Phogat, former Indian hockey captain Sandeep Singh, Olympic medallist Yogeshwar Dutt contesting from Dadri, Pehowa and Baroda respectively, its national general secretary Arun Singh told reporters here. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss account details under automatic exchange framework He said the party’s central election committee, which had met on Sunday, has repeated 38 MLAs and dropped seven of them for the polls to the 90-member assembly. Khattar had won from Karnal seat in 2014. Haryana BJP president Subhash Barala will contest from Tohana, Captain Abhimanyu from Narnod and Om Prakash Dhankar from Badli, Singh said. Former Union minister and Jat leader Birender Singh’s MLA wife will contest from Uchana Kalan, a seat she had won in 2014. Aditya Devilal, a grandson of Jat stalwart Devi Lal, has been fielded from Dabwali. Also Read – Trio win Nobel Medicine Prize for work on cells, oxygen The candidates include nine women and two Muslims. The last date for filing nominations is October 4. With the opposition weakened by desertion among its ranks and shrinking support base, as seen in the recent Lok Sabha polls, the BJP is confident of returning to power with a bigger mandate. Riding on ‘Modi wave’, the party had stormed to power in Haryana for the first time in 2014, winning 47 seats. It had earlier been part of non-Congress governments as a junior partner and was never seen as a principal force. Since coming to power it has consolidated its political position further in the state as its rivals, Congress and INLD, were hit by internal fight made worse by their repeated poor shot in different polls. This coupled with “popular support” to the party following the Union government’s decision to nullify Article 370 will further boost its chances in the polls, its leaders have said. The BJP believes that Khattar, who was a surprise pick for the CM post after the 2014 win, enjoys a clean image after running a government “untainted” by any allegation of corruption. He is again the party’s choice for the top post. In 2014, the BJP had benefited from the consolidation of non-Jat voters behind it in a state long dominated by leaders from the community. The party’s choice of Khattar, who is from Punjabi community, was apparently driven by it. The party is, however, hopeful of winning over a significant section of Jats this time.last_img read more

Those who don’t report by 6 p.m. Saturday will be deemed to have given up jobs on their own, said an official statement after Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao held a review meeting with Transport Minister and top officials. Rao, who held the meeting soon after his return from New Delhi, took serious note of the decision of the JAC to go on strike. The government also dissolved the three-member committee of IAS officials constituted to look into the demands of the employees and declared that there will be no more talks with the union leaders. After talks with the panel failed, JAC leaders decided to go on strike to press for their demands, the chief being merger of TSRTC with the government. The government took strong exception to the JAC calling for strike at a time when it hoped that the income during Dasara and Bathukamma festivals will be of some help to the TSRTC, which is neck-deep in losses.last_img read more

This season is about trust and loyalty. she has her home, currency Courtesy of Kim B. Sofia’s mother A 9-year-old girl from Massachusetts made national news in 2014 with a hand-written letter to President Obama asking him to consider putting a woman on the face of American money He announced that her plea was a "pretty good idea" setting off a national conversation that eventually settled on putting a woman on the $10 bill Two years later Sofia whose last name has been withheld at the request of her family says she is worried Her mother recently told her that Treasury Secretary Jack Lew had been dropping public hints that he was looking to keep Alexander Hamilton in the center portrait on the front of the bill and finding another place to put a woman Sofia told her mother she thought that was unfair "I think that putting a woman on the back of the bill would make women seem less important" Sofia told TIME on Tuesday "You dont pay a lot of attention to the back of the bill" Secretary Lew who could announce his intentions any day now has been signaling for months that he did not want to focus the discussion on "one square inch of space" on the front of just one bill "We are looking at how do we take these buildings that are the back of our bills and bring them to life” Lew said in an interview with Charlie Rose on March 30 in which he noted other bills like the $5 and the $20 will also be redesigned “It is easy to come up with ideas about the Lincoln Memorial” At issue is the fate of Hamilton a founding father Lew describes as a personal hero who served as the nations first Treasury Secretary and recently enjoyed pop culture celebrity as the star of a hit Broadway musical In early 2015 the Treasury department sent a memo to the President proposing to put a woman as the portrait on the $10 bill while recommending that the design also honor Hamilton’s legacy Last summer Lew launched a public campaign to ask citizens to send in recommendations for which woman should hold this new place of honor But in the ensuing months Lew also changed his public description of the process making clear that the center portrait is "not where we intended the focus to be" In the interim Hamilton supporters have made their presence known In June of 2015 for instance former Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke called on the Treasury Department to do "everything within its power to defend the honor of Jack Lews most illustrious predecessor" The frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination Hillary Clinton has also said she has talked to Lew about her desire to keep Hamilton’s portrait on the front of the bill Lew has also become a vocal fan of the celebrated Broadway musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda which celebrates the life of the founding father “It was really tremendous” he told New York magazine last August A Treasury official acknowledged during an interview with TIME Tuesday that the Secretarys thinking evolved over the last 10 months through public input but declined to indicate how Asked for President Obama’s view of the controversy the White House responded with a written statement describing the process as one controlled by the Treasury Department “While this is an independent process we have long supported this effort” said White House spokeswoman Jennifer Friedman Sofia however is not the only one who worried about this shift Barbara Ortiz Howard the founder of Women on 20s the grassroots movement urging the ousting of oft-maligned President Andrew Jackson from the currency says keeping Hamilton in his place would undercut the entire message of bringing women to the currency "Our first representation in over 100 years and this is going to be our representation" Howard told TIME "Its akin to being on the back of the bus" New Hampshire Sen Jeanne Shaheen a Democrat who has sponsored legislation to put a woman on the $20 bill has also objected to a woman sharing space on the bill “Whomever is chosen shouldn’t have to share the honor” she said At least three additional historians and feminists all of whom have been in contact with Treasury suggested to TIME that this arrangement would be problematic "Youre not going to fix gender inequality by putting a woman on the face of the 10 but boy will you emphasize gender inequality by putting women on the back" says Jane Kamensky the Director of the Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America at Harvard University If Lew decides to keep Hamiltons portrait on the front of the $10 bill the most likely place for a woman to be featured as the front portrait is the $20 bill a scenario that has been endorsed by Clinton The $100 bill which features Benjamin Franklin was recently redesigned and Abraham Lincoln whose face anchors the $5 is widely considered the most important President in US History making his replacement unlikely But a focus on replacing President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill would likely delay the arrival of the first woman in a century front and center on US paper money Under the current schedule Lew is expected to announce his decision any day now for the $10 if not other bills But the new official design for the $10 bill will not be unveiled until 2020 with the new bill entering circulation years later The schedule for redesigning other currency is typically determined by an interagency panel To date that body has not discussed a timeline for redesigning the other bills "The Advanced Counterfeit Deterrence Steering Committee has not made any recommendations regarding the $5 bill or the $20 bill" a senior government official familiar with the process told TIME "In fact the $20 bill would not be issued prior to 2030" A Treasury official disputed that timeline in an interview with TIME saying the advancements in technology as well as new counterfeit threats could accelerate the release of the new $20 before 2030 making the timing hard to predict Such speculation will do little to mollify Sofia who will turn 11 this month Over the last two years she has been invited to the White House and has met with Treasury officials But she still remembers the the laminated placemat she used as a younger child featuring colorful block letters and images of the

that Michael Cohen President Donald Trump’s longtime personal attorney received $500000 from a company associated with a Russian billionaire within months of paying hush money to Daniels a porn star who claims she had an affair with Trump Lawyer Michael Avenatti also said hundreds of thousands of dollars streamed into Cohen’s account from companies including pharmaceutical giant Novartis AT&T and Korea Aerospace with US government business interests AT&T confirmed its connection on Tuesday evening Avenatti did not provide documents to support the claims and did not reveal the source of his information File image of Michael Cohen Reuters But in a seven-page memo Avenatti detailed what he said were wire transfers going into and out of the account Cohen used to pay Daniels $130000 in October 2016 to stay silent about her alleged affair with the soon-to-be president Trump denies having an affair with Daniels whose real name is Stephanie Clifford The memo containing highly specific dates and amounts stated that Viktor Vekselberg a Russian billionaire and his cousin "routed" eight payments totaling approximately $500000 to Cohen’s company Essential Consultants between January and August 2017 The reason for the payment was not known Speculating without offering proof the Avenatti memo said "It appears these funds may have replenished the account following the payment to Ms Clifford" Avenatti’s memo said the deposits into the account controlled by Cohen were made by Columbus Nova an American investment company affiliated with the Renova Group which is controlled by Vekselberg Columbus Nova’s attorney Richard Owens stressed in a statement that the company is "solely owned and controlled by Americans" and said that after Trump’s inauguration the firm hired Cohen as a business consultant "regarding potential sources of capital and potential investments in real estate and other ventures" but that it had nothing to do with Vekselberg Owens said any suggestion that Vekselberg used Columbus Nova as a conduit for payments to Cohen was false "Neither Viktor Vekselberg nor anyone else other than Columbus Nova’s owners were involved in the decision to hire Cohen or provided funding for his engagement" he said Cohen and his attorney did not immediately respond to requests for comment Cohen is currently under investigation by federal prosecutors in New York but hasn’t been charged At the time of the payments there was an active FBI counterintelligence investigation — which special counsel Robert Mueller took over last May — into Russian election interference and any possible coordination with Trump associates Vekselberg was targeted for US sanctions by the Trump administration last month He built his fortune currently estimated by Forbes at $146 billion by investing in the aluminum and oil industries More recently he has expanded his assets to include industrial equipment and high technology Offering confirmation for more of the payments AT&T said in a statement that Essential Consultants was one of several firms it "engaged in early 2017 to provide insights into understanding the new administration" Avenatti alleged that the company made four $50000 payments to Cohen totaling $200000 in late 2017 and early 2018 AT&T said Cohen’s company "did no legal or lobbying work for us and the contract ended in December 2017" Cohen is not a registered lobbyist according to public records Such a confidential relationship would not violate federal lobbying laws if Cohen did not seek to influence Trump on the companies’ behalf But hiring the president’s personal attorney for advice on how to woo Trump would be highly unusual especially given that Cohen was never formally involved in the campaign or Trump’s administration Making the arrangement even stranger the blue-chip companies’ payments to Cohen were routed to Essential Consultants LLC — the same company Cohen used to buy Stormy Daniels’ silence about her alleged affair with the president Trump’s Justice Department has sued to block AT&T from an $85 billion merger with Time Warner saying it would hurt competition and consumers would have to pay more to watch their favorite shows Korea Aerospace which is alleged to have paid Cohen $150000 in November 2017 did not immediately respond to requests for comment A spokesman for Novartis a multinational pharmaceutical company could not confirm or deny the payment but said any agreements with Essential Consultants were entered before the company’s current CEO took over in February of this year and have since expired The memo alleges the company paid Cohen $399920 in late 2017 and early 2018 in four payments — each amounting to $99980 Trump had dinner with Novartis’ soon-to-be CEO Vasant Narasimhan along with other European executives at the World Economic Forum in Davos shortly after the date of the final payment Larry Noble senior director of the Campaign Legal Center said there’s nothing technically wrong with companies like Novartis and AT&T hiring people like Cohen to provide insight into the president’s thinking But he said the arrangement described by Avenatti "certainly doesn’t look good" "Why would you go to the president’s private fixer" he asked "He’s not known for policy and he’s not in the administration You’re going to someone who can get you access and tell you about the person of the president That’s unusual" he added Best Place for Raising Healthy Kids This New England city offers great schools, The government has also announced several steps to monitor foreign funding
