Bairstow century powers England to 305-8 against New Zealand

first_imgJonny Bairstow’s second consecutive century at the Cricket World Cup powered England to 305-8 against New Zealand in their final group game at the Riverside Ground on Wednesday.The match is crucial for England, with a win securing a semi-final spot but defeat leaving the door open for Pakistan.After England won the toss and elected to bat, Bairstow smashed 106 off 99 balls and stitched together a 123-run opening stand with Jason Roy (60) before a middle order collapse opened the door for New Zealand.Kiwi pacer Trent Boult struck twice to remove Jos Buttler and Joe Root, who had an unsuccessful review after he was caught behind trying to pull a bouncer to the fence with the third umpire detecting a very faint edge.Ben Stokes struggled to get going, getting caught on the boundary for 11 off 27 as he tried to accelerate the innings while Eoin Morgan (42) was dismissed after an acrobatic catch by Mitchell Santner.Jimmy Neesham (2-41) was the pick of the Kiwi bowlers, getting rid of danger man Roy in his second over, while Matt Henry also chipped in with two wickets.New Zealand have not qualified for the last four yet but, given their superior run rate, Pakistan would need a freak result against Bangladesh on Friday to leapfrog the Black Caps.last_img read more

Manchester United 0-0 Newcastle: Tim Krul frustrates profligate Red Devils

first_img1 Manchester United are denied by Tim Krul Manchester United’s winning start to the season has come to an end after they were held to a 0-0 draw by Newcastle United at Old Trafford.Wayne Rooney is now 10 games without a goal in a red shirt, but it wasn’t for the lack of trying as he had an early effort incorrectly ruled out for offside.But Louis van Gaal will be frustrated as compatriot Tim Krul denied several efforts from Juan Mata and Memphis Depay as the Magpies held on, despite initial looking like they would struggle.After a stunning performance in midweek against Champions League opponents Club Brugge, Depay looked to impress again but an early shot rolled tamely into Krul’s arms, while Rooney had his goal ruled out just four minutes in.Krul was test again just seven minutes later but he was able to comfortably catch a Juan Mata free-kick after Ayoze Perez had ended a Matteo Darmian run with a mistimed tackle.The Dutch goalkeeper was again forced into a good save from the Spaniard when he was allowed to much time in the box by some poor defending, before Rooney, again with too much time, shot straight at him.While Matteo Darmian has looked solid for Manchester United he also looks clumsy in the tackle and swiftly found himself cautioned as he took down Massadio Haidara, who was charging up the left flank. The Toon star was then booked himself for a late challenge on Daley Blind.Depay looks set to dazzle the Premier League and an excellent piece of skill set himself free in the box but his shot was poor again.The Magpies rallied late in the first period and after Aleksander Mitrovic hit the bar with a header from Chancel Mbemba’s cross and Perez’s drive from range was tipped around the post by a sprawling Sergio Romero, with the following corner causing havoc in the United penalty area.In the second half the Red Devils picked up where they left off but their lack of cutting edge up front was telling.Depay crashed a free-kick into the wall, while several chances and set-pieces went begging and even with Javier Hernandez joining Rooney up front they could not carve open a solid Magpies backline who have clearly been well drilled since a couple of shaky performances.And just when Hernandez had managed to stumble his way into the penalty area he was denied by Krul’s outstretched leg.As time ticked on, a close range volley from Antonio Valencia slammed in Fabricio Coloccini, while a Chris Smalling cracked the post while up for a corner.Newcastle United could have won the game with a late counter but after a team-mate twisted and turned in the box, debutant Florian Thauvin could connect with the cross as he slid in, leaving the match to end in a stalemate.last_img read more

TWEETS: Spurs fans troll Wilshere after he suffers new injury at White Hart Lane

first_img‘It’s happened again, it’s happened agaaaaiiinnnn’…It’s fair to say Jack Wilshere’s return to north London was not as successful one…The Arsenal midfielder would have been hoping to dent Spurs’ distant Premier League title hopes as his on-loan Bournemouth team took the trip to White Hart Lane on Saturday afternoon.But he instead endured a miserable afternoon back in the capital and was harshly mocked by Spurs fans when he suffered ANOTHER injury blow.Jeered from even before the game when Bournemouth’s starting line-up was announced, Wilshere held his head in his hands after his mistake led to one of Tottenham’s goals in a 4-0 romp over the Cherries.And he then suffered further embarrassment after he was forced off with an ankle injury following a clash with Spurs striker Harry Kane.Wilshere has a prickly past with fans of his parent club’s fiercest rivals, having led songs and chats of ‘Tottenham are s**t’ at an open-top bus parade to celebrate one of Arsenal’s recent FA Cup wins.And the White Hart Lane faithful wasted no time in getting their own back… 1 Jack Wilshere was jeered by Tottenham fans as Bournemouth lost 4-0 at White Hart Lane last_img read more

Palm Desert Not a controlled event Thanks to the city leadership and in particular the Police Commission, pandering to the special interests and vocal critics, the officers are now placed in an impossible role. To all those critics who are “shocked” to see actual physical force – and who, I suspect, have never been toe to toe with anyone, let alone close with or smelled a combative person’s bad breath and sweat – I say a fight is not a controlled event in which each method of control is pre-planned and counted. This in no way implies that once control is obtained, punishment should apply. You critics who are so concerned that the police are “warriors” should thank God – or, being politically correct, thank whatever or whomever you thank – for the fact that they are out there and willing to go close with the villains of the world. – Cliff Hodge Captain, LAPD (ret.)

Re “LAPD violence; Same old story?” (Nov. 10): The “punching” in this current incident of “police brutality” by the Los Angeles Police Department and the “whacking by baton” in the Rodney King incident have as their genesis a time when the police commissioners outlawed the bar-arm control – more than 20 years ago. Since the time of that ill-conceived decision, there has been no effective means of suspect control provided to the Los Angeles police officer through training. The bar arm was simple and effective. I used the bar-arm control countless times during my police career, with no injury to the suspect or me. Now the LAPD officers have to face their suspects and fight and parry and struggle in order to follow training policy. These silly control and “distraction” techniques are not only totally ineffective, but continue to expose our police officers to public criticism for the ugly perceptions that result from their use. – Stephen Downing last_img read more

Silverlight Lives On in New SQL Server 2012 Reporting Tool

first_img7 Types of Video that will Make a Massive Impac… Growing Phone Scams: 5 Tips To Avoid Related Posts How to Write a Welcome Email to New Employees? Tags:#Big Data#hack The result might have you imagining producing your weekly meetings the way CNN’s John King dances around his big board on Election Night, poking on-screen cards by hand and watching the results zoom into the foreground.History has demonstrated that if one of the teams at Microsoft believes so sincerely in their technology that they don’t want it to die, bestowing upon it the word “Power” gives it an almost magical ability to survive, and perhaps even thrive. During the development of Windows Server 2003, a truly revolutionary command line tool code-named Monad threatened to invalidate the need for a graphical operations management tool. In 2006, its developers managed to get its name changed to PowerShell, and though executives refused to enable it to ship with the server itself, the company agreed to distribute it for free from its Web site. It was a fateful decision; at a time when other companies had already discovered the tremendous power of free distribution, Microsoft decided to distribute PowerShell for free, perhaps with the intent of watching it dwindle and fade away.The opposite happened, of course: Now the tool has become an integral part not only of Windows Server but of Exchange – indeed, the graphical Exchange operations are all built around PowerShell scripts. So now that Silverlight is being tucked away inside some data visualization tool – at a time when data visualization tools are becoming the axis of an entirely new ecosystem of the database and data storage industry – little ol’ Power View may breathe some new life yet into the technology. Indeed, we could be seeing a kind of architectural divergence, where “business Windows” based on the Desktop model thrives as “consumer Windows” on the Metro model goes its own direction. Why You Love Online Quizzes scott fulton The Power View tool is meant to be run remotely, including from a service linked to a SQL Azure cloud-based database, so this is indeed a Web application. Technically, it may run from any browser that supports Silverlight. As with charting in Excel, you point Power View to your source and adapt the visualizations to best suit how that data may be explained to a viewer, and you do so without impacting the data itself.One new tool called the slicer, added to the project during its public preview phase (proof that Microsoft can indeed incorporate good suggestions during a public preview), lets the user select a segment of data in a table to pull out and either highlight in the context of the bigger chart, or demonstrate within a separate graph. Then by creating what Power View calls cards, you can take a record about one of the items depicted in a chart – for example, one of the factors that the chart is comparing, like HP’s share price to Dell’s or Angus cattle prices compared to Hereford – and generate what Metro would call a “tile” for that item. The card can show a picture and some recent data about the item, and clicking on it can trigger the chart to “pivot” around it, showing either the highlight or the slice you created earlier.last_img read more
