first_imgSri Lanka skipper Dinesh Chandimal on Wednesday confirmed that their senior most batsman Angelo Mathews will bat at the important number four position in the first Test against India beginning.”He gives us confidence as a batting unit. He will bat at number four. He has all the experience and at the top of the order and we will get maximum out of it,” Chandimal said on the eve of the opening Test against India at the Eden Gardens.Mathews is yet to score a Test hundred since August 2015 and in that phase he has aggregated 917 runs in 32 innings at 28.65 with his overall average slipping to 44.93 from 52.06. Incidentally his last hundred came against India — a knock of 102 in Colombo in August.”We are looking forward to his experience. He was unbelievable in 2013-14. Hope he will put his hands up and do best.” Having missed the entire Pakistan series because of a calf injury, Mathews is back in action, albeit only as a batsman. (Winning a Test in India is like a dream for everyone: Dinesh Chandimal)”We will miss Mathews as a bowler as he gives us more confidence and can balance the side really well. Unfortunately with his injury he can’t bowl in Tests.” Playing their first Test in India since 2009, Sri Lanka will also eye a maiden win in the longer format as they have lost 10 matches and drawn the remaining six in the country.The Eden Gardens has a green top on offer and Chandimal hoped their batsmen and bowlers would make best use of it. “In our last series here, we played really good against their seamers. We are confident to play on the grassy conditions and bouncy pitches.advertisement”We are more than capable of playing in this kind of conditions. We need to get a good start, especially the top four and then we can continue,” he said. India had whitewashed them 9-0 across three formats not so long ago and Chandimal said they learnt their lessons the tough way.”They have been outstanding. They have done a lot of hardwork, on and off the field. They are really good as a team in every format. They look really balanced.” “We all know India are the number one side at the moment in Tests. They have played some really good cricket last two years. It was a tough series in Sri Lanka and as a team we have learnt a lot from that time.”Sri Lanka bounced back from the bitter memories back home to surprise Pakistan 2-0 in Tests in UAE. “We just need to get positives of the last series. We are more confident after winning against Pakistan.”Asked about their recipe of success against Pakistan, he said: “We just tried to play five bowlers, as a good team you need 20 wickets to win a match. Then fielding is one area we are looking at and keep our energies up for five days.”The weather was really hot in UAE, we used five bowlers… Here we saw the pitch yesterday, it looked green and hard. Maybe, the seamers will come into play in this game. A deep depression in Bay of Bengal is causing a lot of rainfall since last night as it may affect the match with more rain forecast in next 48 hours.”You can’t control the weather. As a team we have a good gameplan, we have something up our sleeves. We are coming tomorrow here to play the game without thinking about the weather. If it rains we will change the gameplan and go forward.”last_img read more


first_imgLOS ANGELES — Three starts into his delayed season and Clayton Kershaw already appears back in his usual form.Kershaw earned his first win, allowing one run over seven innings to outpitch Joe Musgrove and help the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-1 on Saturday night.Chris Taylor hit a tying sacrifice fly and Joc Pederson followed with a two-run triple as the Dodgers rallied for three runs in the seventh inning and sent the Pirates to their season-high seventh straight loss.Kershaw (1-0), making his third start after recovering from shoulder inflammation, gave up four hits, struck out eight and walked none, retiring 13 of his last 14 batters. He has a 2.25 ERA and has not given up more than two earned runs in any of his three starts.The three-time Cy Young Award winner is not usually one to compare outings, but did say this was an improvement over his last, when he gave up two runs over six innings at Milwaukee, while walking four.“I felt pretty much the same,” Kershaw said about his strength as he builds into his season. “I think the one before this one was a little rockier. Not stronger or weak, just a little more inconsistent. But I felt great tonight and I need to keep building on this one.”Los Angeles Dodgers’ Joc Pederson, right, shakes hands with third base coach Dino Ebel (12) after driving in two runs with a triple during the seventh inning of a baseball game against the Pittsburgh Pirates, Saturday, April 27, 2019, in Los Angeles. (AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez)Pittsburgh went ahead in the third when Pablo Reyes singled leading off, was sacrificed to second by Musgrove and scored on Adam Frazier’s single.From there, Kershaw matched Musgrove (1-2) pitch for pitch until the Dodgers broke through late in the game.“This is a tough stretch we’re going through right now,” Musgrove said. “As a starting pitcher, I embrace the challenge. It’s my turn to go out there and set the tone and try and control the game. I came one out short of that tonight.”Caleb Ferguson allowed the Pirates to load the bases with no outs in the eighth on two walks and a single.Pedro Baez retired Melky Cabrera on a flyout and Colin Moran on a popup that dropped next to third baseman Justin Turner after an infield fly was called. Baez then struck out Josh Bell.“Bases loaded and nobody out is a pretty impossible situation,” Kershaw said. “(Baez) was unbelievable. He dominated it and got us out of there. I can’t say enough about (Baez). That was awesome tonight.”Kenley Jansen pitched a perfect ninth for his ninth save in 10 chances, completing a five-hitter.Singles by Max Muncy and Alex Verdugo started the Dodgers’ rally. Pirates catcher Francisco Cervelli took a glancing blow to his left side as Muncy scored, but a video review determined there was nothing improper with Muncy’s slide.Musgrove allowed three runs and seven hits in 6 2/3 innings, ending the Dodgers’ major league record of hitting a home run in 33 consecutive home games. Musgrove gave up just five earned runs in his first five starts.“He’s very collected, he’s a fierce competitor and he expects a lot out of himself,” Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. “He pours into his teammates. He is an absolute pleasure to coach and have on a club.”BUMP AND A RUNCervelli was met on the field by a trainer after Muncy bumped him while scoring his run in the seventh inning. Hurdle was asked about the play afterward.“We’ll talk about it internally,” Hurdle said. “There is no need to share it publicly.”Muncy said he meant no ill will.“I didn’t want to hit him; I didn’t mean to hit him. I can tell you that right now,” Muncy said. “It wasn’t on purpose. It was one those things where I’m running straight for it and he came up the line so I raised my arm to brace in case we hit each other and I clipped him. That’s the end of it.“If they feel the need to retaliate, that’s fine. They’ll retaliate and I’ll be on base and smile because that raises my on-base percentage.”Cervelli, who said he took the blow to his ribs, was asked if he thought the bump was necessary.“I don’t know,” he said. “You’ve got to ask him. I don’t know. I’ve got no idea.”TRAINER’S ROOMPirates: RHP Chris Archer was placed on the 10-day IL with right thumb inflammation. … OF Corey Dickerson will not start his expected minor league injury rehabilitation assignment after experiencing more shoulder discomfort. … OF Lonnie Chisenhall had his rehab assignment for a broken finger halted because of left calf tightness. … C Jacob Stallings (neck) started a rehab assignment with Triple-A Indianapolis.Dodgers: C Russell Martin was activated off the IL after not playing since April 8 because of a back inflammation.

first_imgBoard of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has dismissed a media report stating that the Committee of Administrators (CoA) had asked India captain Virat Kohli to stay humble in Australia.Virat Kohli and Team India are already in Australia and even had their first practice session at the Gabba in Brisbane on Sunday. The report referred by BCCI claimed that CoA had told Kohli “to conduct himself with humility on the tour of Australia”.However, BCCI has rubbished the report and called it “baseless”.”There has been a report in the media by a Mumbai based tabloid dated November 17, 2018 with the headline “Be Humble: Virat Kohli gets a CoA memo”. The report stated that India Captain Virat Kohli has been sent a memo by the CoA to conduct himself with “humility”.”Contrary to the media report, the BCCI after consulting with the team management would like to rubbish the report and classify it as baseless,” BCCI said in a media release.Also read – Bishan Singh Bedi on Kohli-Kumble fallout: One person is doing all he wantsThe report that BCCI denied had specific details of how the CoA had taken up the matter with Kohli and had told him to behave in accordance with the title he holds in the Indian cricket setup.”In the days leading up to Team India’s departure for Australia on Friday, a COA member in a WhatsApp chat took up with Virat the matter of being civil and courteous in his interactions. This was followed by a phone call in which it was reiterated that he must, at all times, behave in a manner that befits the captain of the Indian team,” the report in the Mumbai tabloid said.advertisementKohli has recently attracted a whole lot of controversy with a wide belief that he holds a monopoly over the matters of the Indian cricket team and he gets everything he wants.Recently, Kohli even asked a fan to “leave India” if he could not bring himself to like any Indian batsman and prefers English and Australian batsmen.The comment led to a huge controversy where Kohli was targetted by social media users for his earlier comments in relation with the same comment. He was even told off by Tamil actor Siddharth.However, Kohli then took to Twitter to clarify his stance. “I guess trolling isn’t for me guys, I’ll stick to getting trolled! I spoke about how “these Indians” was mentioned in the comment and that’s all. I’m all for freedom of choice. Keep it light guys and enjoy the festive season. Love and peace to all.”On Sahitya AajTak on Sunday, former India cricketer and selector Bishan Singh Bedi said that he sees a lot of difference between the quality of batsman that Kohli is and his captaincy.”In my humble opinion, there is hardly anyone more intense than Kohli but there is a world of difference in his intensity and the team’s.”Similarly, Virat Kohli as a player and Virat Kohli as a captain, there is a world of difference,” Bedi said.Bedi even said spoke in relation to the Kohli-Anil Kumble fallout last year, “That is what I am saying, one person [Virat Kohli] is doing all he wants and we are letting it happen. What would Anil [Kumble] have said, he was gracious to leave it like that.”Also watch –last_img read more

The reports to the UN Mission in Sudan (UNMIS) said the aircraft “dropped an unconfirmed number of bombs” near Birmaza yesterday, spokesman Stephane Dujarric told reporters in New York. Referring to the arrests in the south, he said that two staff members from an international non-governmental organization (NGO) had reportedly been arrested on Tuesday for taking photographs without the required permit. Separately, Mr. Dujarric also said that armed bandits had tried to break into an NGO compound in West Darfur.As many as 2 million people are displaced within Darfur, a remote and impoverished region in western Sudan that has been beset by brutal fighting between Government forces, allied Janjaweed militias and rebel groups since 2003. An estimated 200,000 others have been killed during that period.Despite the deteriorating security situation, Mr. Dujarric said a new UN assessment had found that overall malnutrition rates in the region had “mostly stabilized this year,” while food insecurity had also improved slightly due to a stronger international response to the suffering there.The survey, which sampled households from the 3.7 million people receiving aid out of the total 6 million people in Darfur, was undertaken by the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Food Programme (WFP).“Preliminary results… found that 70 per cent of war-affected Darfurians were food insecure, slightly down from 74 per cent last year. While the remaining 30 per cent of this year’s war-affected people required some form of assistance, they had more diverse diets, spent less than 50 per cent of their income on food, and relied less on food aid,” UNICEF said in a joint press release.“The assessment also found that while the malnutrition rate among children under five rose slightly, from 11.9 per cent last year to 13.1 per cent this year, hovering just beneath the emergency threshold of 15 per cent, they remained significantly below the 2004 malnutrition rates in Darfur, which stood at 21.8 per cent.”But the UN agencies cautioned that the continued flow of aid is under threat because of escalating violence, which is restricting access to war and drought-affected people, exacerbating the already fragile situation.Furthermore, the number of families who said they could reach feeding centres for malnourished children had halved as the result of deteriorating security and because some feeding centres closed after malnutrition figures improved last year. read more


DAYTON, Ohio – Iona came into its matchup against Ohio State apparently calm and confident that they could hang with-and maybe even beat-the Big Ten tournament champions in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Such self-assurance wobbled, wavered and eventually cracked against the No. 2-seeded Buckeyes. Playing about an hour away from home, OSU coach Thad Matta’s crew ultimately routed the No. 15-seeded Gaels, 95-70, Friday at the University of Dayton Arena in Dayton. With the win, OSU will take on No. 10 seed Iowa State Sunday at 12:15 p.m. As part of a season-high total of 95 points, junior forward Deshaun Thomas’ 24 points led the Buckeyes in its first game of a larger charge toward a return to the Final Four and sophomore forward Sam Thompson quite literally dunked his way to 20 points. Winners of their last nine games in a row, OSU used a 22-2 run midway through the first half to subdue and conquer Iona, which seized the game’s lead, 6-5, at the 16:42 mark. Never again would they lead the contest against a Buckeyes squad shooting 48 percent from the floor. Following the game, OSU junior guard Aaron Craft emphasized the importance of starting the game fast. “We can’t have bad starts,” Craft said. “Not that we’re playing perfect, but we know we have to come out with energy and we knew they were going to come out with a lot of energy and a lot of fire.” After bloating its lead to 19 points, OSU found itself in a game of ebbs and flows against the Gaels which, behind sophomore forward David Laury and senior guard Lamont “Momo” Jones, would not limp away quietly. “I thought that, when you play a team like Iona, they’re just never out of the basketball game and just from the standpoint we got off to a pretty good start,” Matta said after the game. “Give them credit, they got back on us.” Despite a shaky 36-percent shooting outing in the first half, Iona found ways to hang around and furiously chip away at an arduous deficit. Thanks to Laury’s 12 points and Jones’ seven, the Gaels headed into the game’s intermission trailing, 43-33. “We lost our focus, our concentration a little bit,” Matta said. The Buckeyes would get it back, though. Part of it, said junior forward Lenzelle Smith Jr., was playing it what felt like a virtual home game in Dayton. “Right now, it’s all emotional right now. It’s survive and advance,” Smith, who had 12 points, said. “You play off the emotion, and the crowd definitely gave us that boost today.” While the Gaels’ effort was one that seemed to extend the game, Iona could not muster the ability to climb its way back into the contest. While OSU outscored them, 52-37, in the second half, Laury finished the day with 14 points and Jones, who said he wouldn’t be surprised if his team came out with the win earlier in the week, bowed out the tournament with nine points. Senior Evan Ravenel said it made for a certain sentiment associated with shutting down Jones and the Gaels. “It’s a good feeling when guys are kind of vocal like that and want to say things,” Ravenel, who had 11 points, said. “It’s a good feeling to be able to be like ‘Yeah we backed it up, we backed up what we’re about.’” And in a West Region that saw No. 3 seed New Mexico, No. 4 seed Kansas State, No. 5 seed Wisconsin, No. 6 seed Arizona all lose in the tournament’s first weekend, the path to the Final Four seems paved if OSU continues to play at a high level. But Craft said that’s a dangerous mindset to get into. “I hope we don’t feel comfortable … we got a good win today. But we have to find a way to get better tomorrow,” he said. “Whether of it’s practice (or ) film study of whoever we got to play. We have got to continue to be humble, we’ve got to continue to be hungry.” read more


first_imgMinisters want to sign a “statement of intent” deal with Donald Trump within months to work on reducing trade US-UK barriers, The Sunday Telegraph understands. Government figures hope to fly to America early next year for talks with a view to issue a joint agreement promising to boost trade between the countries. It will be seen as Theresa May’s Government pushing ahead with its promise to boost trade with the rest of the world as the UK prepares to leave the EU. Crucially it would not break EU rules that forbid Britain signing fully trade deals until it has formally left the block, currently expected to be 2019.  Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour leader British breweries looking to sell into America have to contest with different labelling rules in each of the states, Mr Shanker said. Likewise insurance regulation is decided on a state level. So-called “behind the border” trade barriers like this are having one of the most “pernicious” effects on exporting across the world, according to Mr Shanker. They would likely be targeted in any UK-US talks on trade. Despite the opportunities on offer from Mr Trump’s victory, figures at the Department for International Trade are understood to be wary of pursing a deal too aggressively. There is a determination that talks cannot begin in earnest with the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership [TTIP] – a trade deal between the US and EU – still on the table.“While TTIP is under negotiation, Britain will use all our weight to get successful result for the EU,” a Whitehall source said. However Mr Trump is expected to pull his support for the deal soon.  The move – which could include launching a working group to begin identifying possible reforms – is a stepping stone to a fully blown trade deal after Brexit. Trade officials will target reducing non-tariff barriers, such as ironing out differences in regulation in the two countries to help exporters. “Donald Trump’s victory opens up new options that weren’t there under the current administration. We are optimistic and waiting to hear what his trading position will look like,” a senior Whitehall source said. The drive comes amid new hope within Government that Mr Trump’s victory can boost Britain’s chances of flourishing economically after leaving the EU. Mr Trump praised the Brexit vote during his campaign while his advisers said Britain would not be at the “back of the queue” for a trade deal – as Barack Obama had said before the EU referendum.  Britain is barred from signing any trade deal while remaining in the EU, meaning Liam Fox and his International Trade Department is limited in what they can agree before Brexit. However the rules do not forbid scoping talks, initial agreements and working groups from seeing how two countries can reduce trade barriers. Theresa May is hoping to fly out for a face-to-face  meeting with Mr Trump in January and would likely take senior trade figures as well – as she did on her recent trip to India. The trip has been marked by Whitehall figures as the earliest possible moment to agree a pro-trade “statement of intent” between the two countries. America is Britain’s single biggest export market and there is a belief boosting trade by just half a per cent could be of huge financial benefit to UK companies. Unlike trade deals being scoped out with companies like India, a less expansive agreement with America is being targeted because eth economies are more aligned. Instead British trade officials will be looking at options for “widening and deepening” links with America, especially including reducing non-tariff barriers. Shanker Singham, the chairman of Legatum Institute’s special trade commission who advised Mitt Romney during his two US presidential bids, believes there is much scope for improvement .“There is no particular standard way of doing a trade agreement. Generally, first year or so is essentially a stock taking exercise,” he told this newspaper. “Like pulling weeds, you need to know what the actual barriers are before drawing up a deal. Different firms will have different views on whether something is a barrier or not.“They would ask what is preventing UK firms from having market access [in America] and market contestability, which means allowing them to be successful.” America’s network of regulations is especially complex because there are often different rules for each of the 50 states, making it harder for British firms to export.  Jeremy Corbyn, the Labour leaderCredit:Dan Kitwood/Getty Images Donald Trump Donald TrumpCredit:AP Photo/ Evan Vucci In a separate development, Jeremy Corbyn has launched his strongest attack against Mr Trump since his unexpected US election victory earlier this month. In a marked contrast to the tone adopted by Theresa May, the Labour leader accused Mr Trump of being a “climate denier” who will not defend the world’s environment.Mr Corbyn also suggested Mr Trump has jumped on the “understandable cynicism” of voters in the face of globalisation to stoke anger against minorities.“We can see the choice taken by politicians on the hard right – to whip up division against migrants, Muslims, Mexicans, women, LGBT people, people with disabilities,” he said in a speech on Saturday.“The fake anti-elitism of rich white men like Nigel Farage and Donald Trump. It’s farcical at one level, but in reality it’s no joke.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

first_img A vigil at the Department of Children and Youth Affairs in 2014. Source: PA Archive/PA ImagesBy August 500 people have expressed an interest in meeting with the committee and over 150 hearings have been held at the commission’s office in Dublin and in people’s homes in areas as diverse as Galway, Cork, Donegal, Limerick and London.In September, it’s announced that an excavation will be carried out on the site of the Tuam home.“The purpose of the excavation is to resolve a number of queries that the Mother and Baby Homes Commission has in relation to the interment of human remains at this location,” a statement says.Zappone travels to the site to meet former residents of mother and baby homes. She says the stories she’s heard are “very distressing”.2017A press conference is announced on the morning of Friday 3 March. The Minister speaks to the media, confirming that:Human remains were found at site of Bon Secours Mother and Baby Home in TuamThey were discovered in what appears to be some type of sewage chamberScientific analysis has put the age of death at between 35 foetal weeks and 2 to 3 yearsRadiocarbon dating has confirmed the remains are from the time the home was in operation – many are likely to be from the 1950s.In a statement, the Commission says it is “shocked by the discovery” and its investigation is continuing “into who was responsible for the disposal of human remains in this way”.State authorities are asked to take responsibility for the appropriate treatment of the remains and the Minister confirms the North Galway Coroner has been informed. He will determine if there is to be any Garda involvement in further investigations.Zappone tells reporters:Today is about remembering and respecting the dignity of the children who lived their short lives in this Home. We will honour their memory and make sure that we take the right actions now to treat their remains appropriately. Saturday 4 Mar 2017, 12:05 AM Mar 4th 2017, 12:05 AM The recently discovered death records for St Mary’s show the 796 children died from malnutrition and infectious diseases, such as measles and TB. The septic tank, full to the brim with bones, was discovered in 1975 by locals when concrete slabs covering the tank broke up. Conservative Catholic teaching at the time denied children of unmarried parents baptism and therefore burial in consecrated lands. http://jrnl.ie/3268787 Short URL The survivors I’ve spoken to, they don’t want their loved ones left in a septic tank. They would want whatever’s left to be put into the main Tuam graveyard, 100 yards away, to have a proper burial.- With reporting by Aoife Barry and Christine Bohan More on this: Nuns who ran Tuam home have ‘no comment’ to make on today’s revelations >Also: Tuam babies: What are the next steps in finding the truth behind their deaths? > 55 Comments Historian Catherine Corless, who made the discovery, says her study of death records for the St Mary’s home in Tuam in County Galway suggests that a former septic tank near the home was a mass grave. The women were ostracised by the conservative-Catholic society and were often forced to hand over their children for adoption. Decisions have yet to be taken on whether more excavations will be required at other mother and baby home sites, she says.Speaking to TheJournal.ie Catherine Corless says she has spoken to relatives “who have come to me looking for help, trying to find a burial place”.The women are few and far between. It’s mainly brothers and sisters of the babies [who died] because the mothers have passed on. They’re often very emotional – it’s so sad to bring them to the site and not being able to show them where they [the babies] are. Health issues and problems associated with the homes have long been documented. As far back as 1944, a government inspection report of the Tuam home described some of the children as “fragile, pot-bellied and emaciated.” Relevant Government departments have been tasked with working together in preparation for the Government’s early consideration and determination of the best course of action.Summer 2014 The issue of mother and baby homes comes under intense media and public scrutiny in the following months. In July, it’s revealed that the death rate of babies at the Tuam mother and baby home was almost double the rate of other homes around the country.Figures from National Archives published by TheJournal.ie show that 31.6% of babies under the age of one in Tuam died over the course of one year.A series of meetings take place as the government works towards setting up a large-scale inquiry into the mother-and-baby homes. Interest groups, survivors, academics with expertise in the area, and politicians from both sides of the aisle meet with Flanagan. He is succeeded by James Reilly as minister in July.The inter-departmental group set up to examine the homes gathers information showing almost 800 children died at the Tuam home run by the Bon Secours Sisters from the 1920s to the 1960s.‘Debility from birth’ was recorded as the biggest cause of death. ‘Respiratory diseases’ was recorded as the second biggest killer. Source: Report of the Inter-Departmental Group on Mother and Baby Homes via Department of Children and Youth AffairsThe UN Human Rights Committee says Ireland must launch a wide-ranging, independent probe into the past abuse of women and children in State and Catholic Church-run institutions.“Very important steps have been taken by the Irish government,” Cees Flinterman of the UN watchdog body says.But what is lacking is an independent, thorough investigation which would lead to bringing those who perpetrated those acts to justice.Autumn-winter 2014 An email from public relations guru Terry Prone, representing the Bon Secours sisters, emerges, claiming there is “no mass grave, no evidence that children were ever so buried, and a local police force casting their eyes to heaven” in the area.The email was sent in response to a request for an interview with Sr Marie Ryan of the Bon Secours nuns by French documentary maker Saskia Weber.Speaking to TheJournal.ie, Prone confirms she sent the email, but says there’s “absolutely no difference” between the substance of it and public pronouncements made by the Bon Secours sisters.“The sisters never knew anything about it,” she says.In November news emerges that a second burial ground has been found at the Tuam mother and baby home. The site was also found by Corless, who tells Morning Ireland that it is a “continuation” of the first site.2015The work of the Commission of Investigation into Mother and Baby Homes gets underway, as the makeup of the panel is confirmed by Minister James Reilly.The three commissioners are:Judge Yvonne Murphy (Commission Chairperson)International legal expert on child protection and adoption Dr William DuncanHistorian Professor Mary E DalyThe establishment of the commission had to be approved by the Dáil and the Seanad, before it was announced.Reilly said:This is a significant moment as the Commission can now start the process to ensure that what was once hidden and covered up in these Homes, and in wider society, can be revealed and openly acknowledged. 38,578 Views Thousands of unmarried pregnant women – labelled at the time as ‘fallen women’ – were sent to the homes to have their babies. Until now, locals believed the bones mainly stemmed from the Great Irish famine of the 1840s when hundreds of thousands perished. Death records suggest 796 children, from newborns to eight-year-olds, were deposited in a grave near a Catholic-run home for unmarried mothers during the 35 years it operated from 1925 to 1961. Catherine Corless Source: Niall Carson/PARead: More on Catherine Corless and how she carried out her research > Minister for Children Charlie Flanagan describes the revelations as “appalling” and says that the full facts need to be established.On 4 June, he issues the first official response from the government on the allegations:Many of the revelations are deeply disturbing and a shocking reminder of a darker past in Ireland when our children were not cherished as they should have been. I am particularly mindful of the relatives of those involved and of local communities. There are a number of Government departments involved in this process. The cross-departmental initiative underway will examine these matters and report to Government on how they might be addressed.

Here’s what’s happened since. By Daragh Brophy James Reilly Source: Niall CarsonHe encourages anyone with information relevant to the investigation to come forward.The commission, it’s announced, will hear evidence in private except in exceptional circumstances. Its powers extend to private and public records.Related: This is the commission’s website >2016An interim report is released in the summer of 2016. Further time is needed to compile some of its reporting, the commission says.According to Children’s Minister Katherine Zappone:Importantly, the extension of time will serve to accommodate the large number of witnesses coming forward and to ensure that new information being discovered can be fully analysed to give a complete understanding of the social history involved.As the commission continues its work, campaign groups raise concerns that more outreach work needs to be done by the panel.“We are concerned about the lack of awareness of the committee’s procedures that seems to be out there,” a spokesperson for survivor advocacy group the Adoption Rights Alliance tells TheJournal.ie in August.We are very concerned and we’ve called on the commission both here and abroad to increase advertising. The home was knocked down many years ago to make way for new houses, but the area around the unmarked mass grave has been maintained by locals. St Mary’s, run by the Bons Secours Sisters, was one of several such ‘mother and baby’ homes in early 20th century Ireland. This investigation is an opportunity for Irish society to address the often harrowing manner in which vulnerable women and children were treated in mother and baby homes, how they came to be there in the first place and the circumstances of their departure from the homes. THE STATE-RUN investigation into mother and baby homes has been underway for just over two years, after being set up by the Fine Gael-Labour government at the start of 2015.The three-person commission was set up following press reports about a possible mass children’s grave in Tuam. It is examining 14 mother and baby homes around the country, in addition to four ‘county homes’.Yesterday, a major announcement about the commission’s progress was made, as it was confirmed a significant number of human remains – of children aged up to two and three years – had been found at the site of the former mother and baby home, run by the Bon Secours sisters, in Tuam.It was announced that the commission had completed two test excavations of the Galway site and confirmed “significant quantities of human remains have been discovered” in a structure which appears to be “related to the treatment/containment of sewerage and/or wastewater”.The Irish Mail on Sunday’s story about children’s remains being buried in a septic tank – based on research by local historian Catherine Corless – was published in May of 2014.The Commission of Investigation into Mother and Baby Homes, it’s planned, will make its final report in February of next year.Here’s what’s been happening in the years since those initial revelations:2014 Source: Daily Mail Source: CNNMay-June 2014 The Irish Mail on Sunday reports that the bodies of nearly 800 young children are believed to have been interred beside the former mother and baby home in Tuam, Co Galway.The revelations, based on the research by Corless, are met with shock and anger in Ireland. International news outlets pick up the story.Here’s how newswire AFP reported it at the time:Almost 800 babies and children were buried in a mass grave in Ireland near a home for unmarried mothers run by nuns, according to new research Wednesday which throws more light on the Irish Catholic Church’s troubled past.

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The Netherlands’ prime minister, Mark Rutte, said on Monday that Greece will have to accept deep reforms if it wants to remain in the eurozone.In a debate in parliament in the wake of Greece’s “No” vote on the terms of a bailout package from its creditors, Rutte said his government was unwilling to commit any more funds to Greece unless it committed to reform. “If things stay the way they are, then we’re at an impasse,” he said. “There is no other choice, they must be ready to accept deep reforms.”He said that creditors had no plans to draft a new proposal after Sunday’s ‘No” vote and it was up to the Greek government to come up with a new proposal ahead of a meeting of European leaders on Tuesday.[Source: Reuters]last_img read more


first_img IT majors to lay off at least 56,000 employees this year Jack of all trades, master of none? Well, that’s not a bad thing, especially in the current corporate scenario when most companies these days prefer to hire employees who can handle multiple tasks. Hiring experts have said that a large number of employers these days shortlist candidates who are generalists and not specialists, especially for entry level jobs.While a specialist might be an efficient employee in a department or two and may have brilliant ideas, a generalist can be trained in a number of things, which is beneficial to the company in the long run. Also, with the right training and guidance, a generalist will not take much time to specialise in a specific department.”A decade ago, specialists were in demand, but today, companies want generalists. The liberal arts degree which was extremely unpopular is now in demand. This is because companies today are looking for trainable people,” the Times of India quoted Paul Dupuis, MD & CEO, Randstad India, as saying.Even though some sectors do need specialists, it is easier to find a job when an employee is a generalist, as he can then be trained and moulded as per the requirement.”While earlier at the time of hiring one would lay emphasis on specific qualifications — at the entry level —employers are focusing more on cognitive abilities than on specialisation. Liberal arts students have an edge in this new world because they are taught not to conform — to challenge facts, to have divergent view points, to seek solutions rather than prescribe one,” Rituparna Chakraborty, executive VP and co-founder, TeamLease Services, explained to the daily. A woman holds her resume at TechFair LA, a technology job fair, in Los AngelesReutersShe also said that in the last two years, TeamLease has noted that most IT companies prefer to hire graduates over engineers in similar salary brackets as graduates can be trained in a number of other things.Meanwhile, the IT companies are also witnessing another shift. Amid a wave of layoff that has hit the IT sector, firms are keen on hiring consultants and freelancers, instead of regular employees. Also called the “gig economy” or “Uberisation” of workforce, companies are said to be hiring workers in a demand-supply model. “While this (Uberisation) isn’t seen yet at a mass level with services companies, it is starting to happen,” the Economic Times quoted Sameer Bendre, chief people officer at Persistent Systems, as saying.”There are a few pockets where we are experimenting with it… We believe that there are a lot of opportunities in some areas for us to use it, like women returning to work after maternity leave.” Closelast_img read more


first_imgSupporters of Ekrem Imamoglu, candidate of the secular opposition Republican People`s Party (CHP) react during his last election rally in Istanbul on 22 June 2019. Photo: AFPIstanbul went back to the polls on Sunday in a re-run of the mayoral election that has become a test of Turkish democracy as well as president Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s continued popularity at a time of economic trouble.Election authorities annulled the first vote in March after Erdogan’s party alleged corruption in a count that showed the ruling AKP’s candidate had narrowly lost.Polling stations opened at 0500 GMT and the 10.5 million registered voters have until they close at 1400 GMT to elect the new mayor.Critics say Erdogan simply did not like the March 31 result, after a little-known former district mayor, 49-year-old Ekrem Imamoglu, snatched victory for the opposition by just 13,000 votes.The city of 15 million is Turkey’s economic powerhouse and has been a crucial source of patronage for Islamic conservatives since Erdogan himself won the mayorship a quarter-century ago.But Imamoglu, of the secular Republican People’s Party, has become a household name since being stripped of his victory.He has vowed a “battle for democracy” and used an upbeat message under the slogan “Everything will be fine”, in stark contrast to the usual aggressive name-calling of Turkish politics.He will again face Binali Yildirim, a mild-mannered Erdogan loyalist who oversaw several huge transport projects and served as prime minister.Fearing fraud, the opposition has mobilised an army of lawyers from across Turkey to monitor Sunday’s election, with the Istanbul Bar Association unfurling a huge banner at their headquarters that reads: “Stand guard for democracy”.Lose-lose situationThe March election showed Erdogan’s party remains the most popular in Turkey, adored by millions for overseeing dramatic growth, fiercely defending the country’s interests abroad and allowing religious conservatives a seat at the table.Secular opposition Republican People`s Party `CHP` candidate for Istanbul mayor Ekrem Imamoglu addresses supporters during a re-run election rally in Istanbul on 22 June 2019. Photo: AFPBut double-digit inflation and rising unemployment have dented Erdogan’s reputation for economic stewardship.Analysts warn he faces a “lose-lose” situation on Sunday: an embarrassing second defeat, or a victory that the opposition will claim was stolen out of their hands.The re-run has also infuriated voters by forcing them back to the polls for the eighth time in just five years.The controversy may explain Erdogan’s relative silence, with no repeat of the tireless rallying last time, when he made 102 appearances in just 50 days.Last weekend, he dismissed the Istanbul vote as “only a change in the shop window” since the AKP already runs almost two-thirds of the city’s districts.The Kurdish factorThe AKP has still gone to great lengths, calling on conservative voters who abstained in March.It has also tried to win over Kurds, who number in the millions in Istanbul and have been angered by the suppression of Kurdish rights in recent years.Yildirim travelled to one of the main Kurdish cities of Diyarbakir this month and uttered the word “Kurdistan” — a taboo in Turkey.There have even been signs of dialogue with the jailed leader of the Kurdish insurgency, Abdullah Ocalan, who has spent 20 years in near-total isolation on a prison island.Ocalan was able to issue a statement this week, calling on the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party to remain neutral in the Istanbul election, though they continue to back the opposition.Ekrem Imamoglu, mayoral candidate of the main opposition Republican People`s Party (CHP), addresses his supporters during an election rally in Istanbul, Turkey, on 22 June 2019. Photo: ReutersAnalysts say Erdogan, who has won every election since 2002, should never be counted out.But a second loss in Istanbul would undermine his image of invincibility and possibly embolden rivals such as ex-prime minister Ahmet Davutoglu, who is said to have toyed with founding a new party.last_img

2019 is the major reason the All Progressives Congress-led Federal Government is harassing and intimidating his aides and associates He also said the blunt truth he told Nigerians during his declaration of interest that Buhari and the APC had nothing good to offer Nigeria had pierced the conscience of APC leaders and given them wounded heart He however said he won’t be intimidated into abandoning a divine project of rescuing the country from maladministration Fayose who spoke through his Chief Press Secretary Mr Idowu Adelusi on Friday said notwithstanding needless harassment whoever thought he could stop a moving train with bare hands would have himself to blame in the end The governor described the arrest of two officials of the state by agents of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) as the height of impunity as a competent court of jurisdiction had ordered against such action The governor said the action of the EFCC was in flagrant disobedience to the orders of Justice Taiwo O Taiwo of the Federal High Court Ado-Ekiti in the case of the Attorney General of Ekiti State versus EFCC IGP and 16 others granted on November 7 2016 The order reads in part: “an order of interim injunction restraining the 1st and 2nd defendants (which is the EFCC and the Inspector General of Police their agents privies or any other investigative agencies howsoever described) from arresting detaining or investigating any person or persons whether past or present officials in the Ekiti State Government without any report of indictment from the Ekiti State House of Assembly pending the hearing and determination of the Motion on Notice filed in this suit” While contending that the order of the court had not been vacated or appealed by the agency the governor added that the agency’s action showed desperation and political partisanship as it had earlier petitioned against Justice Taiwo asking that the case be transferred to Akure Ondo State “The new judge declined jurisdiction because he held that the EFCC’s case lacked merit and the case file was returned to the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court who is yet to assign the case “The latest action by the EFCC is therefore premeditated malicious politically motivated contemptuous and unconstitutional in all ramifications It is another clear and undisguised evidence of gangsterism by an agency that derives its power from the constitution but uses it for political vendetta against the opposition “While we call on all men and women of conscience to call the EFCC and whoever is goading them along perilous path to order we must warn that no harm must come the way of the illegally detained Ekiti State Government officials who have health issues which they will be hampered to manage effectively in EFCC’s crushing detention environment “Not obeying court orders is not the hallmark of democracy but a virtue of anti-democratic agents Colonel Dasuki Sambo former National Security Adviser is still being held despite numerous court orders to the contrary Ibrahim el-Zakyzaky has been locked up unduly for months this is not the democracy we fought to enthrone in Nigeria” he said The governor stressed that it was not a coincidence that those officials were arrested while he was declaring his intention to contest the presidential election but noted that such gimmicks would not deter him from pursuing his ambition “My ambition to contest the presidential election in 2019 is God’s project and no human effort can thwart it Democracy allows for people to aspire to occupy public offices and I have not breached any law doing that Those who think they can get to me by harassing my aides and supporters would soon hit a dead end” he notedImo state governor the
