first_img Turks and Caicos on showcase in South Africa Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 18 May 2015 – An International Leadership Awards ceremony was hosted by the Andrew Young Foundation in Atlanta, Georgia on Sunday and among the global leaders attending was a contingent from the Turks and Caicos Islands. Mr. Young, a civil rights icon who stood with the late Rev Martin Luther King Jr, former Atlanta mayor, cancer survivor and UN Ambassador had his 83rd birthday marked with the awards banquet. Young was a part of the panel for the Fortis TCI plenary session in 2013 and has vacationed in the Turks and Caicos, and calls many residents in our islands ‘friends’… Ambassador Young was also due to make an appearance at the Global Leadership Forum held at the Our Lucaya resort in Freeport, Grand Bahama last November. It was the event Dr. Myles Munroe and his contingent was flying in to attend when their plane crashed, killing all nine on board. It was said Andrew Young was due to be on that flight, but opted out due to the inclement weather. Former Congressman Young, earlier this month escaped serious injury again when a cement truck fell on his and another car; news reports say he had just a bump on the shin proving the man is a true survivor who now spends of much of his time investing in building lives. Later today, the Premier’s Sales Blitz which features members of the Turks and Caicos Hotel and Tourism Association, the Turks and Caicos Real Estate Association, TCI Airports Authority and the TCI Tourist Board will host a business soiree at the City Club of Buckhead in Atlanta.

The worldwide live stream will be available on Hotstar.MI vs DC preview Mumbai Indians tend to win the IPL in alternate years and their three previous victories came in 2013, 2015 and 2017. If one was to go by that pattern, 2019 would be their turn at the summit. But trends are bucked every day in the IPL and 2019 promises to be no different.  Mumbai Indians will be keen to put their 2018 behind them.IANSDelhi will definitely want to be the flagbearers of bucking trends this season as they have failed to make it to the playoffs since 2012. The team has changed its name from Daredevils to Capitals and have roped in Sourav Ganguly in an advisory role. He will be teaming up with Ricky Ponting off the field to ensure the young guns of Delhi can find their groove. Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma has already mentioned how he will be opening this season and that is the correct move from the Indian opener as the best players of a team must face the maximum balls in this short format. Quinton de Kock will, in all likelihood, come out with Rohit. This could mean Suryakumar Yadav goes back into the middle order despite doing well last season as an opener.But from an Indian perspective, all eyes will be on Hardik Pandya as he makes his return from his latest injury layoff owing to a recurring back problem. He will be one of may all-rounders the home team has at their disposal. Pandya’s international teammate Jasprit Bumrah will also be in focus as a lot has been made of workload management of Indian pacers ahead of the World Cup. For Delhi, the IPL provides Shikhar Dhawan with the perfect opportunity to get back among the runs after his recent poor form for India. Dhawan is back in his hometown of Delhi but this match will be the homecoming of his opening partner, the young Prithvi Shaw, who plies his domestic trade for Mumbai. Shaw is a one among a band of young Indian batsmen who will be keen to make their mark for Delhi with the others being Rishabh Pant and captain Shreyas Iyer. The Wankhede pitch usually has good bounce and carry which means both Kagiso Rabada and Trent Boult could be in business for Delhi. Probable XIsMI: Rohit Sharma (C), Quinton de Kock (WK), Suryakumar Yadav, Yuvraj Singh, Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Ben Cutting, Jason Behrendorff, Jasprit Bumrah, Mayank Markande Delhi Daredevils has been rechristened to Delhi Capitals.Delhi Capitals InstagramDC: Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, Shreyas Iyer (C), Rishabh Pant (WK), Colin Ingram, Chris Morris, Axar Patel, Rahul Tewatia, Kagiso Rabada, Amit Mishra, Trent Boult Global TV listingsSubcontinentSubcontinentStar SportsStar SportsSubcontinentUKStar SportsStar GoldSubcontinentAustraliaStar SportsFox SportsSubcontinentSouth AfricaStar SportsSuperSportSubcontinentCanadaStar SportsWillow TVSubcontinentUSAStar SportsWillow TVSubcontinentCaribbeanStar SportsSportsMaxSubcontinentBangladeshStar SportsChannel 9SubcontinentNew ZealandStar SportsSky SportsSubcontinentAfghanistanStar SportsLemar TV CaribbeanSportsMaxlast_img read more

Iftar helping Rohingyas forget atrocities

first_imgIn this photograph taken on 10 May 2018, an NGO worker (L) talks with a Muslim cleric and other members of the congregation about preparations for the upcoming monsoon season in Kutupalong refugee camp in Ukhia. Photo: AFPMajhi Nurul Islam, a Rohingya refugee sheltered in Kutupalong camp block D, finds solace in taking Iftar during the month of Ramadan, commenting that it helps them forget the horrors they had faced back in their homelands.Their pre-Iftar ritual consists of congregating for prayers, seeking their salvation, blessings for their loved ones and the ones who died during the carnage, often leading many to tears.Most of the Iftar items are provided for the refugees in individual boxes by various local and international NGOs. Given the Rohingyas do not have much to do for the entire day, they keep themselves busy with prayers.The refugee rehabilitation and relief commissioner Abul Kalam said that barring 500 Hindu Rohingyas, the remaining 1.1 million refugees are Muslims, for whom the agencies are providing adequate food items in boxes for both Iftar and Sehri.Although they prefer to break their fast with their family around them, many gather round in an open space outdoors and break their fast over there.Majhi Lalu Miah, another refugee from Kutupalong camp, said that they do not find any shortage of stocks during the month of Ramadan.But he observed that many like him feel uncomfortable having to spend the month of Ramadan in such displaced conditions.“It is better to spend Ramadan here than in Myanmar,” he pointed out.last_img read more

Lebanese wary as Israel destroys Hezbollah border tunnels

first_imgIsraeli soldiers and UN peacekeepers gather at the site where the Israeli army works on the Lebanese-Israeli border in the southern village of Kafr Kila, Lebanon. Photo: APAs Israeli excavators dug into the rocky hills along the frontier with a Lebanese village, a crowd of young Lebanese men gathered to watch.The mood was light as the crowd observed in real time what Israel says is a military operation — dubbed “Northern Shield” — aimed at destroying attack tunnels built by the Lebanese Hezbollah militia. The young men posed for selfies, with the Israeli crew in the background, as they burned fires and brewed tea to keep warm.But Lebanese soldiers were visibly on high alert, deploying to new camouflaged posts behind sandbags and inside abandoned homes. About two dozen U.N. peacekeepers stood in a long line, just ahead of the blue line demarcating the frontier between the two countries technically still at war.The scene highlights the palpable anxiety that any misstep could lead to a conflagration between Israel and Lebanon that no one seems to want.Underscoring such jitters, shadowy figures appearing across the misty hills of the border village of Mays al-Jabal last weekend sparked panic, and Israeli soldiers fired in the air to warn a Lebanese military intelligence patrol, according to Lebanese reports. Israel said it fired at Hezbollah members who came to the site to dismantle sensors installed to detect tunnels.Israel’s tunnel search comes at a time when the civil war in neighbouring Syria seems to be winding down. Hezbollah had sent hundreds of troops to Syria in 2013 to fight alongside the forces of Syrian president Bashar Assad. With Assad’s forces emerging victorious, attention now seems to be returning to the tense Israel-Lebanon border.Israel said its troops have discovered at least three tunnels along the frontier — a tactic used by Hezbollah in previous wars — and called on the international community to impose new sanctions on Hezbollah.The militant group, which fought a bruising but inconclusive war with Israel in 2006, has not commented on the Israeli operation or statements.Lebanese villagers smoke a water pipe and take souvenir pictures in front of Israeli excavators, in the southern border village of Mays al-Jabal, Lebanon. Photo: APLebanese prime minister-designate Saad Hariri said Thursday that neither Israel nor Lebanon wanted to go to war, but noted that Israel violates Lebanese airspace and international waters on a regular basis.He said the Lebanese army “will deal with this issue” after receiving a full report from the UN peacekeeping force, but did not elaborate.The peacekeeping force, known as UNIFIL, has confirmed the presence of tunnels and said it is working with both sides to address the situation in line with UN Security Council resolutions.In southern Lebanon on Thursday, Lebanese army soldiers observed the frontier in Mays al-Jabal, taking photos of their Israeli counterparts operating only a few meters (yards) away. At times, the Lebanese soldiers asked the young men to move back, away from the frontier.Ali Jaber, a 21-year-old resident of Mays al-Jabal, said he believes that Hezbollah is more popular after the Syria war, and that this is the reason Israel is now turning to it. “But whoever puts up a shield and is hiding and making fortifications must be scared,” he said.Hussein Melhem, a 19-year old electrician from the village, came to watch. His cheeks ruddy on a cold but clear day, he covered his head with a tight hood. He alleged that Israel is trying to change the border.”If they could occupy all of this, they would,” he said, in an apparent reference to Israel’s 18-year military occupation of southern Lebanon which ended in 2000. “But the resistance will prevent them.”As a seven-year-old in 2006, Melhem and his family left Mays al-Jabal when Israel invaded. His village was badly damaged but has since largely recovered and he said he found their home intact.It is hard to forget about war in the villages and towns along the frontier. Pictures of Hezbollah fighters who died in the 2006 war, as well as the one raging in neighbouring Syria, known locally as the “Sacred Defence,” are everywhere. Posts on town squares boast of defeating Israel or urge the locals to “know their enemy.”During the Syrian civil war, Israel has frequently carried out airstrikes in Syria against Iranian-allied forces, particularly Hezbollah. Israel says it aims to prevent sophisticated weaponry from reaching Hezbollah, which it considers its most pressing security concern.In Lebanon, Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s warnings have raised suspicions that he is also using the tunnel operation as a diplomatic pressure card.Netanyahu has called for more sanctions against Hezbollah. In a visit to the frontier earlier this week, he warned that if Hezbollah tries to disrupt the search for tunnels, “it will be hit in a way it cannot even imagine.”In Israel, some newspaper commentators have been critical of the U.N. peacekeeping force, whose mandate Israel and the United States have unsuccessfully attempted to expand to include “intervention and deterrence.”About 20 kilometres (12 miles) to the north from Mays al-Jabal, Israeli soldiers are also operating along another frontier to uncover what they suspect is a tunnel location.There, a high concrete wall separates them from the Lebanese village of Kfar Kela.UN peacekeepers and Lebanese army separately patrol the area. Israel began building the wall in 2012, and this section was completed weeks ago. While graffiti covers the older slabs of concrete, water has collected under the newer segment of the wall.A UN peacekeeping force was working to clear the water after Lebanese residents complained it comes from irrigation drainage from the other side.last_img read more

CIA Backs Off Directors Claim That Russian Meddling Didnt Swing Election

first_img Share Carolyn Kaster/APCIA Director Mike Pompeo speaks during the Foundation for Defense of Democracies’ National Security Summit in Washington on Thursday.The CIA on Thursday was forced to walk back an assertion by Director Mike Pompeo, who incorrectly said U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded that Russian efforts to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election were unsuccessful.Asked at a security conference in Washington, D.C., on Thursday whether he could say with absolute certainty that the November vote was not skewed by Russia, Pompeo replied: “Yes. Intelligence community’s assessment is that the Russian meddling that took place did not affect the outcome of the election.”In a later clarification, the head of the CIA’s office of public affairs, Dean Boyd, said: “The intelligence assessment with regard to Russian election meddling has not changed, and the Director did not intend to suggest that it had.”U.S. intelligence concluded in a January assessment that “the senior-most officials” in Russia had authorized hacks into the Democratic National Committee and officials connected with the Clinton campaign. And then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told a Senate hearing that the hacking was one part of a coordinated effort that “also entailed classical propaganda, disinformation, fake news.”But the agencies have yet to make an assessment about the impact of Russian interference, something Democrats were quick to point out.“In fact, the intelligence community made no such finding, nor could it,” said California Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee.“This is not the first time the Director has made statements minimizing the significance of what the Russians did, but it needs to be the last,” he said.At odds with U.S. intelligence assessments, President Trump has repeatedly sought to deny or minimize Russia’s role in influencing the 2016 election.last_img read more

Chic ways to style for a Sunday brunch

first_imgBrunch is usually a casual affair and often we meet friends and family to catch up with them over brunch. Thus, what you wear should be something thats comfortable and also makes you feel good about yourself. Often, men end up either being too formal or casual at brunches but not anymore. Experts suggest some looks that are just too perfect for the kind of brunch you’re going to attend: -A little funk: Well, if you’re attending a brunch with your friends or relatives, then atmosphere being super casual will let you experiment with different styles. Here, you can sport your cargo pants paired with a white crew neck T-Shirt and sneakers. The other look is to fold the hem of your pants and pair it up with a colour block T-shirt in blue, maroons or a conversational printed Tee with espadrilles; the combination is a thumbs up. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf-Semi-formal combo: For the formal brunch outing, opt for a semi-formal look. You can pair your formal blazer with a pastel colour polo shirt, navy blue jeans and tassel loafers. A button down shirt with khaki pants would also look neat and cool enough to leave an impression amongst your colleagues. -Go for prints: Well, if your girlfriend has invited you over a brunch, then it is time to show the uber cool side of you. Don’t keep it too casual to walk in slippers. Choose a half sleeved floral shirt paired with straight pants, throw on a bomber if you may like, put on your favourite shades and you’re good to go. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive-Layering: With the cold weather setting in, coat, cardigans are good options. They look different and are much more comfortable than blazers and dinner jackets. It’s a good season to layer up and finding good jackets is important for that. Experiment with not just colours and styles but also fabrics like terry, denim, fleece, etc. -Style with sweatshirts: Sweatshirts are a wardrobe staple but something to look out for this season is details. Interesting panel details, contrast stitch lines, pleat details, among others make for subtly interesting styles.last_img read more
