Police seize Rs 35 lakh from Sathya Sai Baba trust car

first_imgNearly two months after the demise of renowned godman Sathya Sai Baba of Puttaparthi in Anantapur district of Andhra Pradesh, more skeletons are tumbling out of the cupboard of the Sathya Sai Central Trust, which manages his multi-crore spiritual empire.Lending credence to the apprehensions of several devotees that large quantities of gold, diamonds and jewellery, besides a huge amount of cash is being siphoned off from Yajur Mandir, the personal chamber of Sai Baba, the Anantapur Police seized Rs 35.50 lakh cash from a car belonging to the trust at Kodikonda tollgate near Hindupur town late on Saturday night.They arrested one person, identified as Harish Nanda Shetty, a site engineer working on the Maha Samadhi works at Prashanti Nilayam in Puttaparthi. During interrogation, he allegedly confessed that the money was given to him by Shekhar, the personal driver of Venu Srinivasan, one of the trust members and chairman of TVS Motors, Chennai. Shekhar, in turn, reportedly told Shetty that the amount was given to him by Pradhan, the chief security officer at Yajur Mandir.On Sunday morning, the police managed to track down Shekhar and another person while they were travelling in a Bangalore-bound bus and took them into custody.For more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.last_img read more

Barcelona ready for ‘must win’ El Clasico with or without Neymar

first_imgBarcelona coach Luis Enrique said he is preparing for Sunday’s “must-win” Clasico against Real Madrid with or without Neymar as Spain’s Court for Sport (TAD) warned the Catalan club there could be consequences if they field the suspended Brazilian.Neymar was sent off for two yellow cards against Malaga earlier this month, earning an automatic one-match ban. His punishment was increased by two matches because he sarcastically applauded the fourth official as he walked down the tunnel.The three-match suspension ruled him out of the game against Real Sociedad on April 15 as well as Sunday’s Clasico and Barcelona’s home game against Osasuna on April 26.The Spanish football federation (RFEF) rejected Barca’s appeal against the extra two-match suspension on Thursday, but the club took their case to TAD on Friday.”The club have done things well, defending the interests of the player. I think it’s logical,” Luis Enrique said on Saturday.”I’m preparing for the game with and without Neymar — the club are right to do what they’re doing with the appeal. It’s something they are working on as much as possible.”There was widespread confusion about Neymar’s potential availability after TAD’s president, Enrique Arnaldo, said on Friday that the court had received no communication from the club.On Saturday, however, TAD released a statement saying Barcelona had contacted them later on Friday to ask that Neymar be declared available against Madrid, which the court said it could not do.TAD said it called an emergency meeting on Saturday but this could not take place due to all court members not being present.advertisementIn the absence of a judgment, however, the club were warned by TAD of the risks in allowing Neymar to play.”All participants in sport are free to interpret the rules as they see pertinent in relation to their rights and interests, without prejudice to the fact that competent bodies may subsequently determine the correctness or incorrectness of their interpretation.”Following their Champions League elimination on Wednesday, the Clasico has taken on extra significance for Barcelona’s season.Barca are three points behind La Liga leaders Real, having played a game more and know a loss would leave them with a mountain to climb to prevent Real securing a first title in five years.”It’s a special game because of the moment we are in the season; the game against our great rival, who are top of the table. We need to nullify their qualities, any result but a win would do us no good whatsoever,” Luis Enrique said.last_img read more

Darmian agent yet to receive offers

first_imgTransfers Darmian agent yet to receive offers amid struggle for Man Utd game time Chris Burton Last updated 1 year ago 05:02 11/26/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Matteo Darmian Manchester United Getty Transfers Manchester United Premier League The Italy international defender has slipped back down the pecking order at Old Trafford, sparking talk of interest from Roma, Napoli and Inter Matteo Darmian’s agent insists the defender has received no offers to leave Manchester United as he struggles for game time.The Italy international emerged as a key figure under Jose Mourinho towards the end of the 2016-17 campaign as he thrived as a makeshift left-back.Southampton 5/1 to beat Everton 1-0 Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Seemingly very much in favour, his regular minutes helped to quash talk of a possible summer switch away from Old Trafford.Darmian has, however, slipped back down the pecking order this season to spark rumours of interest from the likes of Roma, Napoli and Inter in his homeland.His representative, Tullio Tinti, has, however, sought to end such speculation by telling Pagine Romaniste: “There is nothing on the market, it’s too early.“I haven’t heard from anybody.”Darmian had to wait until September before making his first competitive outing of the season for United.He has taken in just seven more outings since then, with only two of those coming in the Premier League.His last top-flight appearance came against Tottenham on October 28, with only Mourinho’s desire to rotate in the Champions League securing him game time.Darmian joined United from Torino in the summer of 2015 for a reported £12.7 million fee and recently stated that he has no regrets at making such a move.He said: “I made a choice and I don’t regret it.”Of course it’s normal that any player wants to play as much as possible. I work hard every week and I’ll keep doing it.”Darmian has made 77 appearances for the Red Devils to date, scoring one goal – against Crystal Palace in April 2016.Despite his lack of consistent outings at club level, the 27-year-old has remained a key part of the Italian national set-up – although he has also endured disappointment on an international stage after failing to help the Azzurri to the 2018 World Cup.last_img read more

(Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)With Tua Tagovailoa firmly entrenched as Alabama’s starting quarterback next year, former starter Jalen Hurts chose to enter the NCAA’s “transfer portal” earlier this week. That doesn’t mean he’s transferring just yet – but it does mean he’s looking into it.In the few days since, there has been plenty of speculation regarding where Hurts could wind up. One school appears to be emerging as a favorite.Friday morning, Miami officially hired away Alabama assistant Dan Enos – bringing him on as its new offensive coordinator. Enos worked with Hurts a great deal at Alabama.Now, CaneSport.com is reporting that Hurts is expected to visit Miami this weekend.Miami’s pursuit of transfering Alabama QB Jalen Hurts could continue Sunday with a visit to Coral Gables.

While he saw some action this year, Tagovailoa was the team’s starting quarterback.If Hurts does choose Miami, it could influence where Ohio State quarterback Tate Martell lands. If Martell is eligible to play in 2019, he likely won’t want to sit behind Hurts at Miami.We’ll know more after this weekend.last_img read more

World Cup 2019: Vijay Shankar close to playing a big knock for us, says Virat Kohli

first_imgWorld Cup 2019: Vijay Shankar close to playing a big knock for us, says Virat KohliWorld Cup 2019: Vijay Shankar replaced injured Shikhar Dhawan but has failed to impress with the bat as he managed scores of 29 against Afghanistan and 14 versus the West Indies.advertisement Press Trust of India BirminghamJune 29, 2019UPDATED: June 29, 2019 19:34 IST Vijay Shankar has failed to impress with the bat. (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSVirat Kohli has backed Vijay Shankar to score a good knockVijay Shankar had replaced Shikhar Dhawan in India’s squadShankar scored 29 against Afghanistan and was involved in a 50 plus stand with his skipperPutting his weight firmly behind under-pressure Vijay Shankar, skipper Virat Kohli Saturday said the all-rounder is very close to playing a defining knock for India in the World Cup.Kohli’s vote of confidence ahead of the England game means that Rishabh Pant will have to wait to get his first game.Asked about his assessment of Shankar, Kohli said, “It’s a strange one because he had a decent game against Pakistan. I think against Afghanistan on that pitch he looked really assured. Shot selection, again, we discussed with him for that game. Last game, again, he came out, he looked really good, and he got a beautiful ball from Kemar Roach.”Shankar scored 29 against Afghanistan and was involved in a 50 plus stand with his skipper.”So you can’t really sit down and pinpoint things. But I personally felt he looked really solid. There’s not much that needs to be tinkered. Sometimes in cricket you just need a bit of luck to get over from 30 to 60, and then you play a defining knock for the team.”He’s very close to that, and we’re very confident he’s going to end up playing that kind of knock for us,” said the world number one batsman.He did not read much into Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s slow strike-rate in the previous couple of games and Kohli once again reiterated that the former skipper “knows what he’s doing”.”I don’t think that he’s ever been a cricketer that’s ever had the need to be told what exactly he needs to do,” he made his point clear.advertisement”What we experience and what we know inside the change room is the most important thing to us, and we have total belief in him (Dhoni), and he stood up for the team many times, especially if you look at this calendar year and the kind of performances he’s given. I don’t think it’s fair to point out one or two performances which anyone can falter with the bat,” Kohli was certainly not pleased with the criticism aimed at Dhoni.The middle-order issues remain and Kohli’s defence for the under-fire number 4, 5 and 6 is “lack of balls due to good show from the top-order” on most occasions.”Look, that discussion is always going to go on because we’ve had such a strong top order that these guys have hardly had a chance to bat. When they bat, out of four times, if once or twice it doesn’t come off, then we feel like, oh, it’s not a strong middle-order, but we overlook the times that it has come good,” he added.”If you look at the first three games that we played, the contribution was absolutely fine. We were getting 300 plus, and no one said anything. We were like, oh, this is an amazing batting order.”Then one game where we could not accelerate as much, everyone says that maybe it’s not as strong,” he made his displeasure clear.However this argument from the skipper doesn’t hold much ground since the groundwork in most occasions was done by Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma and Kohli, himself.Also Read | World Cup 2019: MS Dhoni must bat at No. 4, says Dean JonesAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Dear Virat and Ravi, please don’t drop Vijay Shankar, tweets Kevin PietersenAlso See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Lions player takes to Twitter for help navigating Vancouvers housing market

first_imgSURREY, B.C. – Jovan Olafioye has made a career out of protecting CFL quarterbacks from some of the league’s most fearsome pass-rushers, but this season, he felt like he was in danger of being sacked by Vancouver’s notoriously tough housing market.Now the star B.C. Lions offensive lineman feels like he’s about to lock down some lodgings after a Twitter post about his housing woes resulted in numerous calls and offers of accommodation.“It has been really stressful, but it’s nothing I can’t handle, really,” said Olafioye, who returned to Vancouver in May following a year-long stint with the Montreal Alouettes.He’s been living out of a suitcase ever since he got back to the West Coast. While he’s had trouble finding a place to live before, the 30-year-old said this round has been especially stressful because his family and two young kids have been staying back in Pittsburgh.“I’m kind of used to it but I’m not,” he said.He’s looking for a furnished two-bedroom place close to a SkyTrain station for a five or six-month lease, to cover football season.It’s a tall order for Metro Vancouver, a region that the Canadian Mortgage Housing Corporation said had a 0.9 per cent vacancy rating in November.The same report pegged the average monthly rent for a two-bedroom apartment in the area at $1,552.Olafioye said he’s grateful to the football fans who have stepped up to help him with his search.“Vancouver’s always been good to me and I appreciate the good responses, the good motivating responses,” he said.The six-time CFL all-star noted that some of his teammates are still looking for lodging and in the meantime, they’ve been staying in hotels and Airbnbs. He hopes they have the same good luck he’s had.Lions’ head coach Wally Buono said the team asked the CFL for an early bye-week this year, knowing some of their players would need time to find a place to stay and get settled.It’s a tight rental market and landlords don’t want to sign leases for six months, he said.But Buono hopes Olafioye’s story inspires some people to offer up their unused properties.“It’s hard. Players come with their wife, young children to rent for six months. It’s hard. So if there’s a fan who has a basement suite and its not doing anything …” he said, his voice trailing off.last_img read more

FROM THE FIELD For refugees and migrants in Europe healthcares essential but

For reasons including their legal status, language barriers and discrimination, refugees and migrants can face challenges in accessing health care., by WHO/Francesco BellinaEven a healthy migrant or refugee can fall sick, while traveling to – or sheltering in –  a receiving country. Poor living conditions and lifestyle adjustments to a totally new environment, are just two possible reasons why, according to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) first Report on the health of refugees and migrants in the WHO European Region.It may come as no surprise that children without parents or a guardian are especially vulnerable, and at risk of suffering both health and social problems.The WHO report, which was developed in partnership with the Italian National Institute for Health, Migration and Poverty, summarizes the latest evidence on the health of refugees and migrants in various parts of Europe, along with the progress made by countries to promote their health.Here’s the full story. read more

Nominations for multicultural landmarks open

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The Gillard government is calling for people to nominate national heritage places in Australia that best represents multicultural Australia.It aims to celebrate Australia by looking at the stories and contribution of migrants and will be the new heritage theme for 2013. Launched by Environment Minister, Tony Burke and Multicultural Affairs Minister, Kate Lundy, the nominations are open to any examples of indigenous heritage and places of significance to migrants.“The national heritage list has many examples of indigenous heritage and many examples of our colonial history, but I have never understood why we have been so slow to recognise the heritage of those families who have come to Australia in the many waves of immigration we have had subsequent to our colonial history,” Mr Burke said.“The whole concept of the heritage list is to tell the story of Australia. Only when the multicultural stories are added will the list truly tell the story of our nation.”Senator Lundy said Australia is a successful multicultural nation with over 7 million migrants successfully settling here since the Second World War.“I encourage Australians to nominate places that capture the contributions of migrants so their legacy can continue for future generations,” Senator Lundy said.A call for nominations for places on the National Heritage and Commonwealth Heritage lists is currently open and will close on 15 March 2013.For more information go to http://www.environment.gov.au/heritage/nominating/index.htmllast_img read more

But he is only 25 years old and there is too much responsibility for him.”The Italian defender also praised new teammate Cristiano Ronaldo and claimed that the five-time Ballon d’Or winner has become a beacon for the squad.He added: “Ronaldo? He’s amazing.“His decision to prove himself again at 33 was huge. His winning mentality managed to fill the gap left in the group by Buffon’s farewell.“Cristiano is a beacon and point of reference, he leads with a positive attitude. In addition to his goals, assists and shots, he’s an exemplary figure. I see him calm and he works with a smile on his face.”Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri also stated that Ronaldo deserves the credit for their stunning start to the new season.The Old Lady will take on 11th-placed Genoa on Saturday in the Serie A.last_img read more

County Sports fields wont harm environment

first_imgPlans for the Hazel Dell sports fields include appropriate steps to mitigate significant environmental harm, according to a county report released Monday. That likely won’t reassure outspoken neighbors who oppose plans for the county to install a sports complex on the county-owned, 20-acre site on the north side of Northeast 78th Street.A hearings examiner will take testimony 6 p.m. June 29 at the Clark County Public Service Center. If examiner Dan Kearns determines the plans are in compliance with land-use laws, the project can go forward unless residents take it to court. The county has made some concessions to neighbors, including placing a planned road along the east edge of the property farther from the closest homes.The proposal calls for one large sports field for baseball, which could also be used for soccer, lacrosse, field hockey and rugby; two medium Little League fields; and two small T-ball fields. The site would also feature batting cages, nature trails, a parking lot, and a building with restrooms and concessions.The county plans to partner with neighboring King’s Way Christian School to share sports fields and parking spaces. The land is a federal Superfund site because of toxic compounds lying at least 50 feet beneath the surface. The Environmental Protection Agency said there’s no danger of exposure from building ball fields.last_img read more
