The team lacked rhythm and experience and the player with the most rhythm and experience was the best player on the pitch.

Reliance Communications pays Rs 45877 cr to Ericsson Sources

first_imgNew Delhi: Racing against time to meet the Supreme Court’s deadline, Reliance Communications (RCom) has paid Rs 458.77 crore of dues to Swedish telecom equipment maker Ericsson, according to sources. Failure to cough up the dues would have meant that RCom Chairman Anil Ambani would have faced a 3-month jail term. Observing there was a ‘wilful default’, the Supreme Court last month held Ambani guilty of contempt of court and ordered the debt-laden company to clear the dues to Ericsson within four weeks or face a 3-month jail term. A source in the know said RCom has paid Rs 458.7 crore to Ericsson as per the SC directive, but did not divulge details. However, Ericsson could not be reached for comments.last_img read more

Producer of antiIslam film performs pilgrimage to Mecca

first_imgTafraout- Newly-converted Arnoud van Doorn, a former anti-Islam film producer and a member of the Dutch right-wing Freedom Party, performed a pilgrimage to Mecca this year. Upon embracing Islam, Arnoud indicated that he intends to produce a film in order to defend Islam and the prophet Mohamed.Arnoud has stated that he experienced a number of enjoyable, spiritual, and uplifting moments during his recent pilgrimage to Mecca. He also reportedly shed some tears of repentance and glee, according to Okaz outlets. “Islam has filled the emotional void I have long desperately felt. I missed many things before I converted to Islam,” Arnoud was quoted by Okaz as saying. “My previous life was futile and aimless.”” Now with Islam, many things have changed in my life,” he added. Arnoud decided to perform the pilgrimage to seek repentance and implore Allah for forgiveness and absolution , reported the Yahoo news website.During his previous visit to the Holy Land, he performed “Oumra” and acquainted himself more closely with the rituals of Islam. “I find tranquility inside my heart when I am near the Prophet Mohamed’s tomb,” he said.Since he embraced Islam, he has been curious to read and learn a great deal about Islam, the religion of peace.Despite the fact that Arnoud’s political party was infamous for attempting to tarnish the image of Islam and Muslims, the new convert has surprised many by his relentless new dedication to supporting the religion.© Morocco World News.

Commentary Devoted NBA fans wont miss David Stern

When I heard that NBA commissioner David Stern vetoed a potential blockbuster deal that would have sent former New Orleans Hornets and all-star guard Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Lakers last season, I said a bunch of things that can’t be run in print. Well, Christmas came early for me this season as Stern said Thursday he would retire as league commissioner, effective Feb. 1, 2014. The NBA’s deputy commissioner, Adam Silver, has been selected to take his place. The decision to try and bar Paul from the Lakers, I thought, was the most blatant abuse of power I have ever seen by a professional commissioner. Los Angeles and the Hornets negotiated what they considered a fair deal and made it league official, only to be renounced hours later because one person, Stern, didn’t think it was “fair.” I understand Stern found a loophole. At the time, New Orleans’ team was up for sale. Consequently, the Hornets fell under the ownership of Stern and the NBA. Stern said the league made a decision “in the best interest” of the Hornets. Many people speculate that Stern’s decision was made due to enormous pressure from multiple owners, most notably Dan Gilbert of the Cleveland Cavaliers. But countless NBA analysts disagreed and felt the deal was more than adequate. Personally, I think most owners believed the league was getting too top-heavy with talent and smaller market teams would no longer be able to compete at a championship level. Now, if you fast forward to present day, the Lakers look like the predominant favorite to represent the Western Conference and the only team who can challenge the defending NBA champion Miami Heat. But today, Lakers fans only have one question: What could have been? Keep in mind, the proposed three-team deal that Stern vetoed only included current Los Angeles forward Pau Gasol and former Laker Lamar Odom in exchange for Paul. Comparatively, the Aug. 10 four-team trade that sent former Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard to the Lakers only featured injury-prone center Andrew Bynum from the purple and gold. So conceivably, the Lakers could have assembled a Western Conference version of the Miami “Big Three” with Howard, Paul and guard Kobe Bryant. As the New York Yankees of the NBA, the Lakers always seem to get who they want. Key acquisitions of longtime Phoenix Suns guard Steve Nash and Howard have made painful memories of the failed Paul deal disappear. I’m not saying Stern robbed the Lakers of a title last season, but he sure didn’t help. Over the last few seasons, the Lakers have been torched by point guards and Paul is arguably the best at his position. What I am saying is that I hope Silver leaves the dealing to the general managers. Stern caused more harm than good and devoted NBA fans are not sad he’s leaving. Here’s to a bright future and let’s hope we see a “Silver-lining” with the new commissioner. read more

Credit: Gretchen Rudolph | For The LanternThe Ohio State softball team (23-11, 7-2 Big Ten) earned a victory in the final game of the three-game series against Rutgers, shutting out the Scarlet Knights 8-0 in the five-inning win with the help of three home runs, including a grand slam..Ohio State freshman third baseman Ashley Prange began the offense in the third inning, hitting her first career grand slam down the left field line to give the Buckeyes the 4-0 lead. “We had a great warmup, and we all have a great time hitting,” Prange said.  “I think we are all prepared.”Sophomore catcher Claire Nicholson extended Ohio State’s lead to 6-0 in the bottom of the fourth inning with a two-run homer over the left field wall. In the bottom of the fifth inning, freshman Kaitlyn Coffman sealed the victory with another two-run home run to the left. “We had a rough game yesterday,” Coffman said. “I think we just want to really make a statement. This is our home field. We should [have] beat them yesterday.”Senior pitcher Morgan Ray added seven strikeouts in the complete game, earning her ninth win of the year. Overall, she has recorded 101 strikeouts in 108.1 innings of work this season and is the only player on the Ohio State roster with more than 32 strikeouts. Ohio State head coach Kelly Kovach Schoenly said Ray responded to yesterday’s loss in the way one of the team’s top pitcher should respond. “Just come out and put it on the line and just do what she needs to do,” Schoenly said. “I think having a determination to be better for her today was key. She is such a great player. I am glad she responded like that.”Ohio State will head to State College, Pennsylvania, to start a two-game series against Penn State, both of which take place on Tuesday. The first game will start at 5 p.m., and game two will start at 7 p.m. as the second part of the double header. read more
