It doesn’t make any sense. I think they’ve got to look into that. That’s frustrating when things out of your hands hurt you. But at the same time, that’s not why we lost the game.”Aaron Gordon scored 28 points and made a driving, go-ahead layup with 5 seconds to play for the Magic, who trailed 106-97 before scoring 10 straight points. Lopez then drew a foul while backing into the low post with 0.6 seconds left, and he coolly made both free throws.“I knew I was going to hit them,” Lopez said. “It was bizarre. I guess we had the game-winning jump ball.”Lonzo Ball had 16 points, six rebounds and five assists for the Lakers, who broke open a tie game with an 11-0 run midway through the fourth quarter, capped by Lopez’s thunderous dunk with 6:09 to play. But the Magic stormed back and trimmed LA’s lead to 106-105 when Jonathon Simmons made one of two free throws with 33 seconds left.Isaiah Thomas added 13 points and nine assists off the bench for the Lakers, who thrived despite the absence of leading scorer Brandon Ingram for the third straight game due to a strained groin.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Typhoon ‘Tisoy’ threatens Games View comments “It’s obvious we’ve got a young group, and we didn’t execute down the stretch,” Thomas said. “I still don’t even know how it ended. I don’t even know what the call was. That (stinks) for the Magic. I’m glad we won.”TIP-INSMagic: Before the game, Orlando waived guard Rashad Vaughn. His sore knee would have prevented him from playing out the rest of his second 10-day contract, so the Magic made the move. … Evan Fournier scored 11 points before being sidelined during the second half by a sprained left knee.Lakers: They wore their powder-blue Minneapolis Lakers throwback uniforms. … Ingram won’t return until Sunday against Cleveland at the earliest. … The 7-foot Lopez somehow didn’t get a rebound in 35 minutes of play. “Fun fact,” he said with a sardonic grimace.ROOKIE ROLLKyle Kuzma had 20 points and 10 rebounds in one of his best games of 2018. The University of Utah product had at least 20 points and 10 rebounds for the first time since Dec. 22 at Golden State. He appeared to hit the rookie wall in January.THE BIG PAYBACKWhile recording their 10th win in their last 11 home games, the Lakers avenged an embarrassing loss in Orlando on Jan. 31. The Magic routed the Lakers 127-105 at Amway Center, even without Gordon in the lineup. That embarrassment partly sparked the Lakers on their current run of strong form, with nine wins in 14 games since that defeat.UP NEXTMagic: At Sacramento Kings on Friday night for the third stop on a five-game road trip.Lakers: At Denver Nuggets on Friday night. Lopez scored 27 points and hit two free throws with 0.6 seconds to play, and the Lakers blew a nine-point lead in the final 90 seconds before rallying back to beat Orlando 108-107 on Wednesday night.The game ended with a curious sequence of events. When the Magic inbounded the ball at midcourt after Lopez’s free throws, the clock started before anyone had touched the long pass. But because the mistake was technically a clock malfunction, the officials said the teams must have a jump ball at center court instead of replaying the possession, effectively preventing the Magic from getting a final chance to win.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“Just common sense would tell me in that situation, if the clock started early, just redo the possession,” Orlando coach Frank Vogel said. “They felt otherwise.”The weird ending ruined an otherwise thrilling finish between the Magic, who have lost nine of 11, and the surging Lakers, who have won six of seven.

zoom Japan’s Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) has teamed up with Fujitsu Laboratories, and Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology to verify the accuracy of technology to estimate vessel performance at sea by applying Fujitsu’s artificial intelligence (AI) technology, FUJITSU Human Centric AI Zinrai.This project is a part of MOL’s initiative to assess the effectiveness of AI technology and aims to reduce fuel consumption and vessels’ environmental impact.The actual voyage data provided by MOL included information such as speed, fuel consumption, main engine rpm, wind direction, wind speed, recorded from October 12, 2015 to December 13, 2015.Results of verificationCould estimate vessel speed with about a 1.4% allowance, and fuel consumption with an allowance of about 0.8%, based on the above-mentioned method.The following graphs show time-series results of actual measured values of vessel speed and estimated values. Verification confirmed that actual measured values and estimated values are almost the same.
Billericay Town Football Club’s owner Glenn Tamplin is one of the most eccentric owners in the English football lower tier leaguesThis has been a crazy week for National League South team Billericay Town F.C. after the club hired manager Steve Watt, only to fire him a few hours later.According to The Telegraph, eccentric owner, Glenn Tamplin added Watt to the team’s WhatsApp group, only to remove him later.“I’ve had to sack him because he was slagging us off last year,” Tamplin wrote on the group.“One minute we were all saying how much we were looking forward to working with the guy, the next he was gone,” one of the players said.“I’ve never seen anything like it. Apparently, when he was in charge of Margate last season he had a few digs at Glenn and it’s all come out. Hopefully, something gets sorted soon.”The team’s manager position is vacant after Harry Wheeler was sacked last month.Billericay Town F.C. was founded in 1880 and is the second most successful club in FA Vase history, winning the competition on three occasions.Thank you Harry for everything you done for us I’ll say it again on here as I have in person I’m sorry for the way it ended, Good luck in the future ? https://t.co/JJq1EXS5sb— Glenn Tamplin (@glenntamplin) September 11, 2018

Al Qaeda terrorists [Representational Image]ReutersAl-Qaeda has strong ties with Pakistan-based terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and the Haqqani Network, according to a new UN report. It also said that the deteriorating health of leader Aiman Muhammed al-Zawahiri has raised an alarm on the issue of succession. “Al-Qaeda remains resilient, although the health and longevity of its leader, Aiman Muhammed Rabi al-Zawahiri, and how the succession will work are in doubt,” said the Analytical Support and Sanctions Monitoring Team report. It was submitted to the UN Security Council Al-Qaeda Sanctions Committee. The report also said that the terror group considers Afghanistan as a “safe haven” and deeply relies on the strong relations with the Taliban. “Under Taliban patronage, Al-Qaeda is keen to strengthen its presence in Badakhshan Province, in particular in the Shighnan area bordering Tajikistan, as well as in Barmal, in Paktika Province”, the report said. According to a previous report on LeT and Islamic State working with Pakistani intelligence agency in Afghanistan, officials have claimed that the terrorist group’s presence in the region has risen over the years. “LeT’s presence in Afghanistan has been observed to be steadily on the rise. According to recent inputs, Hafiz Saeed’s son Talha Saeed is taking more interest in operational affairs in Afghanistan,” an intelligence official told Hindustan Times. ISIL and the Al-QaidaThe report also compared Al-Qaeda’s influence with the emerging presence of another terrorist group, Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL).The ISIL, who gained recognition for carrying out the Sri Lankan Sunday terror attack, was reported to strengthen its network in remote provinces using “a logical extension of the dispersed, delegated leadership approach.” Islamic State released a video of the terror squad responsible for the Easter Sunday massacre.”Better established affiliates are taking on elements of responsibility for lesser ones, channelling funds and assisting with propaganda. Over time, this may have the effect of regionalising the agendas of these networks,” it added.On the other hand, Al-Qaeda has a successfully established network through its engagement in local issues and politics. It noted that the largest concentration of active foreign terrorists in Idli and Afghanistan were largely aligned with the Al-Qaida. However, it is noted that the group has some issues in the Syrian city, Idlib. While the report says that the Al-Qaeda’s allies are stronger than their ISIL counterparts in Idlib, Syrian Arab Republic, Yemen, Somalia and a majority of West Africa, it said that ISIL is a much greater threat to global security.In terms of finances, media profile, current combat experience and terrorist expertise, the UN report noted that ISIL remains much stronger than Al-Qaeda.
Sachin and Kambli in the videoTwitterThe story of Sachin Tendulkar and Vinod Kambli’s friendship is legendary. However, in the last decade, their relationship went through some turmoil due to certain statements from Kambli. However, the two men seem to have put the past behind them. Their Twitter posts have been oozing with that same spirit of bonding which saw them put up a world record partnership in their school days.On Friendship Day, the Master Blaster posted a video on his Twitter timeline which shows the two old buddies engaged in a friendly cricket video game contest. This video is indeed special as it has the former Indian cricketers eschewing that spirit of friendliness which makes you realise that while they may have grown up, somewhere in their heart, they still have the same child-like enthusiasm.Happy #FriendshipDay guys… always remember that there are ‘No boundaries’ in friendship! ?@vinodkambli349 pic.twitter.com/qe6hT7Y7lx— Sachin Tendulkar (@sachin_rt) August 4, 2019 TwitterThe video ends in a special way also. After their game ends, the two men have a high-five. Then, Kambli says, let’s have a super over. Tendulkar responds by saying: “In this match, there are no super over.” When his friend asks why, he replies: “Because in friendship, there are ‘no boundaries.'” This is a cheeky remark aimed at the World Cup final and the boundary count rule that awarded England the trophy.Kasa visru shakto! Miss our playing days.?Why don’t you come over, we’ll do something fun.Guys, any suggestions?? https://t.co/TIoABbfdGM— Sachin Tendulkar (@sachin_rt) August 3, 2019 This followed a tweet posted by Kambli earlier in the day where he claimed to “have beaten the Master Blaster in his own game.” He then asks: “Who’s the Universe Boss?”Sachin replied by posting a video where he challenges Kambli to another match and says the first one wasn’t recorded while the next one will be.Kamblya, found this photo of ours from our school days.Memories came rushing back and thought of sharing this. pic.twitter.com/pUkOablTAX— Sachin Tendulkar (@sachin_rt) August 3, 2019 Even on the previous day, there were some heart-touching Twitter exchanges between the two men. Vinod mentioned a funny anecdote relating to their young days when Tendulkar decided to let his friend suffer a serious admonition from their late coach Ramakant Achrekar. Sachin also shared an old photo from their school days with a lovely caption. Hopefully, this spirit of friendship will continue without any hiccups in the future.
Dr Shirin Sharmin ChaudhuryThe 63rd Commonwealth Parliamentary Conference (CPC)-2017 will be held in Dhaka between 1-8 November with the participation of MPs from 180 national and provincial assemblies.The Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) and Bangladesh Jatiya Sangsad are jointly going to arrange the eight-day conference with the key theme ‘Continuing to Enhance the High Standards of Performance of Parliamentarian’ for the first time in Bangladesh.”Some 600 representatives, including speakers, deputy speakers and members of parliaments, from 180 national parliaments and provincial parliaments of 52 commonwealth countries will participate in this international conference,” said CPA executive committee chairperson Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury.Shirin, also the speaker of the Jatiya Sangsad (JS), disclosed it at a press conference at the JS media center on Tuesday. CPA secretary general Akbar Khan also spoke on the occasion.Representatives from the United Nations and international organisations will also join the CPA annual conference, she said.Replying to a question if the Rohingya crisis will be discussed in the conference, the CPA executive committee chairperson said the issue is not there in the CPC agenda as it was finalised before the crisis broke out.The Rohingya issue may be placed for discussion in a workshop on ‘What Factor Fuel the Rise of Different Kinds of Nationalism’ in the conference, she said.Prime minister Sheikh Hasina, who is vice patron of the 63rd CPC, will inaugurate the conference on 5 November at the South Plaza of Jatiya Sangsad. Queen Elizabeth-II is the patron of the 63rd CPC.Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury will act as the president of the CPC 2017.A Jatiya Sangsad delegation, led by deputy speaker Fazle Rabbi Miah, will join the mega event.Asked whether Pakistan will attend the conference as the country did not participate in 136th IPU conference held in Dhaka in April last, the CPA chairperson hoped that Pakistan will join it this time as it has possibly got registered to join.Earlier, the CPC conference was scheduled to be held in Dhaka in September last year but it was postponed after the Gulshan terror attack.About the security measure, Shirin said measures are being taken to ensure foolproof security to hold the conference successfully and provide adequate security to foreign participants.She said they invited the diplomats of commonwealth countries stationed in Dhaka on Monday to inform preparations and possible security measures for the conference through power point presentations.The foreign diplomats expressed satisfaction with the preparation and possible security measures.Asked if there is any plan of taking CPC representatives to visit Rohingya refugees in Cox’s Bazar, Shirin said still there is no such a plan.The CPA was founded in 1911 as the Empire Parliamentary Association and its affairs were administered by the UK branch.
Dave FehlingThe dam at Barker Reservoir in February 2016Back in April when a foot and a half of rain fell west of Houston, it nearly filled up both the Addicks and Barker Reservoirs that lie along the Katy Freeway at Highway 6. Since then, millions of gallons have slowly been released through dam gates into Buffalo Bayou.Richard Long with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers manages the dams. We talked with him Tuesday afternoon.“Well the reservoirs are in real good condition right now. Addicks Reservoir emptied out overnight, actually, just last night, and Barker Reservoir will empty in the next couple of days. So we will be basically through with all the Tax Day floodwater and all the rains that have occurred since then,” Long said.The dams were built in the 1940s and have been deemed “extremely high risk” because of their age and the potential for billions of dollars in damage to Houston should they fail.A $75 million renovation was just getting started when the Tax Day flood hit. Construction stopped and it was only Tuesday that crews could access the site and resume their work.“Over the next few weeks and months, after the reservoirs are empty, we’ll be doing a detailed inspection of the entire dam, but at this point we don’t expect to find anything glaring that would cause us any concern,“ said Long.Long said he’s confident the reservoirs are ready for next big one, which he hopes won’t be anytime soon.

Darjeeling: A three-year-old girl had a miraculous escape on Thursday when she fell in front of a herd of elephants. The animals quietly moved into the forest without causing any harming to the baby. The incident occurred on Thursday in the Jalpaiguri district.Nitu Ghosh, a 36-year-old businessman, a resident of Neora-Mor, Lataguri, with his wife Titli Ghosh and three-year-old daughter Ahana Ghosh had visited Mahakal Temple deep in the jungles on Thursday morning. Also Read – Bose & Gandhi: More similar than apart, says Sugata BoseAfter offering puja, while returning on a two-wheeler, they approached the access road to the Kalakhawa watchtower. Suddenly, three elephants came on their way, sending a shiver down Nitu’s spine. In a state of panic, he lost his balance and all three riders fell on the road. Nitu somehow managed to get up and tried to scurry to safety. In the process, he fell into a pothole and sprained his ankles. Titli, 29, managed to run for a few yards but she hurt her legs. However, the there-year-old baby fell right in front of the elephants. A few other people had gathered at the spot. All of them watched in despair at what seemed to be a sure death. The elephants kicked the two-wheeler off the road but did not harm the girl. Instead they slowly passed her by into the forest. Local residents immediately took the family to a private nursing home in Jalpaiguri.
Kolkata: State Urban Development and Municipal Affairs minister and Mayor Firhad Hakim on Friday criticised BJP for its dubious attempts to induct leaders from other parties.Hakim also reminded that not a single Trinamool Congress leader will join BJP despite its attempts. He said: “Those who consider politics as business can shift their loyalty from one party to other. But those who have grown up with the ideals of Trinamool Congress will never join another party.” Also Read – Bose & Gandhi: More similar than apart, says Sugata Bose”Trinamool Congress was formed by Mamata Banerjee with values and ideals. Those who are familiar with the values propagated by our party will never join any other party. People of the state have seen how Banerjee has fought for them. They have seen how the developments have taken place in the state after Banerjee became the Chief Minister,” Hakim said. He also said that as the BJP has no foothold in the state, it would always try to induct leaders from other parties through various means. He also addressed the CPI-M leaders in this regard, saying: “How can the people who are supposed to believe in the communist ideology join a communal party like BJP?”
Damage caused to the canal bridge (Image: Kerry Ashdown) He said: “Lorries going over it are constantly clouting the top. If they dislodge the coping stones off the top and there happens to be a boat underneath it – God forbid – the coping stone is going to kill the person underneath. If it goes onto the boat, and it is a wooden boat, it would certainly sink it. “I have been in touch with the Canal and River Trust and the highways department (at Staffordshire County Council) and I have been going to them for three or four years about it. I have asked them to ban wagons going over the bridge; it isn’t wide enough for them.” The bridge stones have been scraped bu vehicles (Image: Kerry Ashdown) County councillor Ian Parry, who represents the Stone Rural ward, said he would welcome more protection for the bridge. He added: “The bridge has historically been damaged by vehicles colliding with it and I would support the idea of weight or class restriction on its use. “I think the flow of commercial traffic in the vicinity of Mount Road and use of sat navs make the problem more complicated. I also wonder if even small commercial vehicles can sometimes struggle with the tight right angle turn.” Staffordshire County Council’s cabinet support member for highways and transport Helen Fisher said: “We will always take on board residents’ concerns and our highways team can look into this issue. “Canal bridges by their nature are older and narrower structures and around the county some have weight restrictions. In most cases there shouldn’t be any need to introduce a weight limit as the bridge structure should be capable of taking the weight of vehicles using them. “However, if there is concern about the capacity of a bridge then we would need to work with the Canals and Rivers Trust, which owns the bridge, before considering any weight limit and what that should be.” A52 blocked after lorry jack-knifes A Canal & River Trust spokesperson said: “The Canal and River Trust is calling once again for motorists to slow down when crossing over Bridge 98 in Meaford on the Trent and Mersey Canal after the bridge has been recently hit again by a careless driver causing £25,000 worth of damage. As a charity it is heart-breaking for us to spend so much time and money caring for these amazing structures just to see them so carelessly damaged. Calls for speed watch scheme on busy town road “We have made the area safe and we are now looking at options to try and stop this from happening or at least try and catch people who are causing the damage which might include installing CCTV if we have enough funding. As a charity the money that we will spend to repair the bridge is diverting costs from other projects and repairs we could be doing caring for our canals. “We’re hoping to fix the bridge in the near future but if anyone sees a vehicle hitting the bridge please contact the local police who are aware of what is happening.” Get the biggest Daily stories by emailSubscribeSee our privacy noticeThank you for subscribingSee our privacy noticeCould not subscribe, try again laterInvalid EmailA “careless” driver has caused £25,000 worth of damage to a canal crossing near Stone – and a concerned resident is calling for a weight restriction on the bridge to prevent further destruction or even tragedy.
