Morsis family not to attend trial session

first_imgCAIRO  – The family of ousted Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi said on Sunday the deposed leader is unfazed by what it described as “trumped up” charges against him, and asserted they would not attend the first session of his trial, due on Monday.In a statement sent exclusively to Anadolu Agency, the family cast doubts on the authenticity of statements that the Egyptian daily Al-Watan claims that Morsi had said during his meetings with visiting politicians and rights groups from his unknown detention place since July 3.The paper said it obtained leaked recordings of Morsi’s meetings at his detention place, which is still being kept secret. The family said releasing the statements one day before the trial’s first session aims to influence the public.The statement was signed by Morsi’s elder son, Osama, who identified himself as the official spokesman of the “abducted legitimate Egyptian president”.“The president is steadfast despite months of violations against his rights as a president and a citizen and despite all the smear campaigns launched against him by a people of no value,” Morsi’s family wrote in the statement.It said the ousted president would not be brought down to his knees by “trumped up” charges or “kangaroo courts.”Morsi is due to appear for the first time since his July 3 ouster in court to face charges of inciting the killing of demonstrators outside the presidential palace in Cairo in December when he was a president.At least 14 other Muslim Brotherhood leaders and ex-presidential aides are due to appear with him in court as well.The families of seven of the defendants in the case already said they would not attend the trial because they don’t recognize the court’s legitimacy.– RecordingsAccording to al-Watan newspaper, Morsi said during a meeting with Catherine Ashton, the high representative of the European Union for foreign affairs and security policy, that he was illegally detained and this should not happen to a head of state.He called on the European Union and the United States to intervene for his reinstatement, promising to redress the mistakes he had committed during his one year of rule, according to the newspaper, which said it has video and audio recordings of Morsi’s statements.It said Morsi expressed objection to holding a public referendum to decide whether he should stay in office or hold early presidential elections, saying the Egyptian constitution did not contain articles that make this possible.Al-Watan said it would post the video and audio recordings of Morsi’s statements to prove the authenticity of what it marketed as a “scoop.”It said Morsi insisted during his meeting with another political delegation to describe his ouster as a “military coup”, saying that he is still the president according to the constitution.Morsi, however, said he was being treated well at his detention place.He said he rejects his trial, saying the president should have different grilling procedures according to the constitution, the newspaper said.“If I go to the court I will defend myself before the judges,” Morsi was quoted by the newspaper in its report as saying. “I am not involved in the killing of demonstrators. I will say this to the judges.”By Hussein al-Qabanilast_img read more

Ohio State womens basketball blown out ousted from Sweet 16 by Tennessee

OSU senior guard Ameryst Alston (14) dribbles the ball during a game against Wagner on Nov. 22 at St. John Arena. Credit: Elizabeth Tzagournis | Lantern PhotographerThe last time the Tennessee and Ohio State women’s basketball teams met before Friday was in the 2011 NCAA Sweet 16 round. Fast forward five years to Friday night, and the two had a rematch in that very same rebound.The No. 7 seed Lady Vols were not the favorite coming into the matchup with the Buckeyes in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, but they disregarded the predictions from analysts and dominated the third-seeded Buckeyes 78-62.Tennessee came out of the gates strong and played with efficiency, taking quality shots from all areas of the court. Redshirt sophomore guard Diamond DeShields left the game for a stint with an injury, but would later return to contribute an all-around performance to the Lady Vols’ success.Tennessee took control of the contest in the first half by breaking the press with ease and using its height in the paint to its advantage.Tennessee’s post play was led by redshirt sophomore center Mercedes Russell who went a perfect 6-of-6 from the field, taking over the OSU forwards. The Springfield, Oregon, native showed poise on the block with her effortless post moves and displayed her clean shooting form, putting the ball through the nylon throughout the evening.Along with Russell’s success, senior forward Bashaara Graves also didn’t miss a shot in the first half, shooting 5-of-5.OSU, on the other hand, was far from perfect, struggling to get an offensive flow in the first 20 minutes of play. Only shooting 25 percent as a team in the first quarter, the Buckeyes had to find a solution to their offense if they wanted to keep it close going into the locker room.Missing their lead defender, senior guard Cait Craft, to a season-ending hand injury, the Buckeyes didn’t have a player to turn to shut down the Volunteers scorers.Senior guard Ameryst Alston, who has been struggling to perform because of a wrist injury suffered in the Big Ten tournament, did not want her senior year to end earlier than it had to be, ignoring the wrist pain and completing some of the acrobatic shots that she regularly converted before the injury.Sophomore guard Kelsey Mitchell took matters into her own hands for the rest of the first half, knocking down a slew of 3-pointers and finishing the half with 11 points.Even though OSU trailed after the first half of play, the Buckeyes did not show the urgency that they needed to catch up to the Lady Vols. OSU ignored the offensive strategy that it typically followed throughout the year and lacked energy on defense, putting the Scarlet and Gray in even more of a hole as the second half of play got underway.Tennessee’s offensive movement continued to be pristine and showed shades of coach Pat Summitt’s rosters back in the day. The Buckeyes simply had no answer for Tennessee and were unable to enforce their high-velocity pace that has been their go-to all season long.Russell would go on to score a game high 25 points and grab 14 rebounds, while Graves finished with 14 points and nine boards.Despite her injury, DeShields ended her night with 10 points and dished out seven assists, while grabbing five rebounds as well.On the Scarlet and Gray side, Alston led the Buckeyes with 21 points, ending her collegiate career on a strong note. Mitchell would follow her with 20 points, though she shot just 5-of-15 from the field.With the loss, the Buckeyes will board the plane back home to Columbus to begin their offseason, while the Lady Vols are set to continue to the Elite Eight to take on Syracuse and compete for a chance to make it to the Final Four. read more

Lavenders career day leads OSU to comeback championship

With the clock ticking toward zero and the game in the balance, the No. 10 Ohio State women’s basketball team had a decision to make.Needing a basket to win the Big Ten Tournament Championship, who takes the last shot for the Buckeyes?The decision wasn’t too difficult to make. Center Jantel Lavender drew a foul and nailed a pair of free throws with 1.9 seconds remaining to propel the Bucks (30-4) over Iowa (19-13) with a 66-64 victory and into the Big Ten Tournament title Sunday in Indianapolis.Lavender was firing on all cylinders against the Hawkeyes, scoring 35 points and grabbing 10 rebounds.She scored 23 of OSU’s 33 points in the second half, when the Buckeyes made a furious comeback, rallying from a 49-33 deficit to eventually tie the game at 60-60 with five minutes to play.The junior center from Cleveland, Ohio, made 14 of her 25 shot attempts and all seven attempts at the free throw line.The teams arrived at the championship bout on completely different paths.Ohio State won the regular season championship, its sixth in a row, with four games remaining on its conference slate.At 10-8, Iowa finished five games behind the Buckeyes in the final regular season standings. But the Hawkeyes beat Penn State 82-75 and upset No. 23 Michigan State 59-54 to reach the title game.It appeared they would finish off their Big Ten blindsiding when they jumped out to the 16-point advantage, but Lavender’s relentless effort in the post earned OSU its second consecutive conference tournament title and an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. read more

Wrestling No 2 Ohio State prepares for two meets in three days

Ohio State’s Luke Pletcher wrestles Paul Glynn in the dual-meet against Iowa on Jan. 21 in the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorThe No. 2 Ohio State wrestling team will take on Michigan State at 7 p.m. Friday at Jenison Field House in East Lansing, Michigan, and Purdue at 1 p.m. Sunday at Graham High School in St. Paris, Ohio, the hometown of Buckeye wrestlers and brothers Bo and Micah Jordan.The Spartans (5-6, 1-4 Big Ten) lost their last meet to No. 21 Wisconsin 28-7, and they lack a single ranked wrestler, giving Ohio State (10-0, 5-0 Big Ten) a massive advantage. However, it is rare for a team to win each match, even when there is an edge in the rankings.“Michigan State, obviously they’re not your Iowa or Penn State match, but it’s still a good opportunity to go out there and work on some new skills in a live match,” Ohio State redshirt sophomore Kollin Moore said. “Try some of the stuff that you’ve been working in practice see if you can do it in an actual match.”Moore, who ranks No. 1 at 197 pounds, will wrestle in both Ohio State’s meets. Senior and No. 1 heavyweight Kyle Snyder will neither rest nor compete for Ohio State this weekend. Instead, he will represent the United States at the Yarygin Grand Prix in Krasnoyarsk, Russia. Snyder will try to become the first American to win the Yarygin in back-to-back years. Ohio State is coming off of a decisive victory against No. 3 Iowa 22-12 on Sunday, a result that still lingers in the Buckeyes’ minds.“I would argue that that was one of the top-three dual meets of all-time,” Ohio State head coach Tom Ryan said. “I mean that was a great atmosphere. Our guys really saw the love that people have for wrestling in this region and for the university.”The Schottenstein Center filled up with 15,117 people for the Iowa meet, and the home fans watched the Buckeyes win six of the 10 bouts. Moore beat No. 5 Cash Wilcke, and Ohio State sophomore No. 2 Luke Pletcher beat Paul Glynn at 133 pounds. Both Moore and Pletcher remained undefeated on the season with the victories, but Pletcher saw his performance from a different perspective.“Last year we had the big crowd and I lost,” Pletcher said. “So it was still cool then, but it’s a lot better when you win, obviously. I had a lot of family members come down. My club coach brought some wrestlers down, so it was pretty cool to see them there, and go out in front of 15,000 fans was pretty awesome.” Purdue (5-5, 0-4 Big Ten) has struggled recently, losing its past four competitions, most recently losing 21-12 to No. 14 Illinois. The Boilermakers wrestle North Dakota State on Friday, which will allow them to try to regain some confidence before they take on the Buckeyes.Sunday’s meet will give the Jordan brothers the chance to return to their high school in St. Paris, Ohio, to compete for the first time since the two graduated.“That’s one of the meccas in the country, let alone the state of Ohio,” Ryan said. “They are producing college student-athletes left and right.”Ohio State shifts its focus toward Michigan State and Purdue, though its Feb. 3 meet at Penn State is nearing. read more

Darren Moore defends Rodriguez after controversial equalizer

first_imgWest Bromwich Albion manager Darren Moore has come to the defence of Jay Rodriguez following his controversial equalizer against Aston Villa.Rodriguez appeared to handle the ball en route to scoring the last goal of the game as West Brom played out a 2-2 draw with Aston Villa, but Moore isn’t the former England international didn’t do intentionally.“He said the ball had hit his arm, but he didn’t know much about it because he threw himself at it,” Moore said, according to Birmingham Mail.“To see it go in at the end I was really pleased. I didn’t think we deserved to lose the game with the commitment we put in.”“It had all the ingredients of a local derby.”There was a tone of swings when Moore was asked about conceding a late goal of such nature and he replied by referencing Brentford’s equaliser at the end of a game against West Brom.BIRMINGHAM, ENGLAND - MAY 11: Dwight Gayle of West Bromwich Albion celebrates after scoring his team's first goal during the Sky Bet Championship Play-off semi final first leg match between Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion at Villa Park on May 11, 2019 in Birmingham, England.

Medina – May 13, 2019 The on-loan striker scored 24 goals during the 2018-2019 English Championship season but will miss the rest of the campaign.“There was a goal on Monday night I was cheesed off with,” he said.“What I was happy with was how the boys kept going.”“I was pleased because we had two days less to prepare for the game.”“As the game wore on, we needed to get our noses in front because I thought the boys might run out of steam.”“You’re never happy to concede a goal so I’d imagine Dean’s not very happy about it.”“Although it wasn’t a win, to score as late as that in a game of that magnitude it certainly feels like it.”last_img read more

Social Media Doesnt Work Very Well Without Good Consistent Content

first_imgThe Online Publishers Association yesterday released some topline results from a new research study called “A Sense of Place: Why Environments Matter.” Conducted by Harris Interactive, the study examined how consumers perceive content in different online environments, and whether those perceptions impact consumer responsiveness to advertising. Harris polled more than 2,900 adult U.S.-based online consumers about their perceptions about three environments: media properties (such as ESPN.com, NYTimes.com, etc.), portal channels (i.e. AOL News, MSN Money) and social networks (Facebook, MySpace, et al.).What I found least interesting about the results is that consumers are more likely to trust content on media sites (72 percent) than from portal channels (60 percent). What was most interesting is that, despite all the hype around social media right now, only 23 percent indicated that they trust content from social media environments. Consumers who recall purchasing products from a site’s advertisers are significantly more likely to do so from media sites (8 percent) than portal channels (5 percent) or social media (3 percent).Meanwhile, a new report from the Nielsen Company says the popularity of social media “is undeniable,” with users spending nearly a quarter of their time online on social networks and blog sites. So, publishers the industry over are rushing to social media platforms to engage their users in the environments they now reportedly spend one out of every four minutes in, but those users still don’t trust the content/advertising they find in those environments. Awesome.I passed the OPA report along to Junta42 founder Joe Pulizzi to get his take on the report. What he found even more interesting than the reported lack of trust/response to social media sites was the study’s omission of the corporate brand environment. I think he has a point. The buzz I’ve heard is that users are increasingly turning to brand sites directly instead of media sites.“If the goal of the research was to help brand marketers understand the value of placing advertising on branded media sites, the research still leaves a lot of questions unanswered,” Pulizzi tells me.  “The challenge for brand marketers is not necessarily whether they should advertise on a media site versus a portal versus a social network.  They are trying to decide whether they should advertise, or whether they should invest more of their marketing dollars into their own engaging content.”Pulizzi says that trend of users going directly to a brand’s site instead of media outlets will continue to grow as more content is created by those brands. “Brands are developing sophisticated content strategies to take advantage of not only search, but lead generation programs and social media as well,” he says. “Social media doesn’t work very well without good, consistent content.”last_img read more

Kenya dam burst death toll rises to 41

first_imgLocal residents wait inside an ambulance after Patel dam burst its bank at Solai, about 40 kilometres north of Nakuru, Kenya, on 9 May, 2018. Photo: AFPAt least 41 people died after a dam burst in central Kenya, police said Thursday, as residents described muddy waters ripping through their homes in what one survivor called “hell on earth”.After a severe drought, weeks of torrential rains in Kenya have led to flooding and mudslides that have left 172 dead.The private Patel dam, used for irrigation and fish farming, burst its earthen banks on Wednesday evening in Solai, near the Rift Valley city of Nakuru, regional police chief Gideon Kibunjah told AFP.The raging waters wiped out two villages, a local resident said, while power lines were swept away, leaving many without electricity. The search for victims on Thursday afternoon by heavy rains.”We have 41 people dead from this tragedy,” Kibunjah said, adding 20 of them were children. He said the search for victims was still going on.”It is a disaster because most people were asleep when the tragedy occurred and their houses were swept away.”He said 36 people had been hospitalised.- ‘Hell on earth’ -Survivor Ngugi Njoroge said he and his family had been having dinner when there was a “loud explosion of water that washed away our home.””I was with my parents and my younger brother. I don’t know where they are. I was carried away by the water but I was lucky as I clung to a tree until the water subsided,” he said from his hospital bed.”It was like hell on earth.”Miriam Karimi said she could not find any of her three children, including her four-year-old son.”When we heard noises, we thought it was raining heavily nearby. I’m so confused. I hope they are alive,” she said.A senior police officer at the scene, speaking on condition of anonymity, said emergency workers had spent the night combing through engulfed houses to retrieve bodies.”We found 11 of the bodies covered with mud at a coffee plantation and these are people who may have been escaping but could not make it due to the force and speed of the water from the flooded dam,” he said.”Most of them are women and children who could not have been able to run fast, and the elderly.”The dam is close to an informal settlement housing casual labourers who work on nearby farms.The Kenyan Red Cross estimates that up to 500 families were affected by the disaster, which took place some 150 kilometres (90 miles) northwest of Nairobi.- Deadly rainy season -Weeks of torrential rains in Kenya have led to flooding and mudslides countrywide.Government statistics released Wednesday showed that more than 220,000 people have been displaced by flooding as heavy rains hit the country after three consecutive failed rainy seasons had left it in drought.Since March, at least 21,000 acres (8,500 hectares) of farmland have been submerged in water with an estimated 20,000 animals killed, the Red Cross said last week.The floods have also destroyed road networks in some parts of the East African country and in some cases the military has stepped in to airlift residents from submerged houses.The Red Cross appealed last week for $5 million (four million euros) to help those affected.The deluge has affected large parts of East Africa, destroying crops and killing farm animals after a severe drought which had sent food prices and inflation soaring and left millions in need of food aid.In Rwanda 215 people have died because of floods and landslides since January, according to Philippe Habinshuti of the disaster management ministry.In Somalia flooding has displaced tens of thousands, while torrential rains have also caused havoc in Tanzania and Uganda.last_img read more

Dont forget fitness on holidays

first_imgHealth is wealth, and that doesn’t change even when you’re on a holiday. Experts suggest eating healthy and being conscious of one’s body. About one hour of exercise a day can help you stay in shape even while you have fun.Delhi-based fitness expert and trainer Santosh Sharma shares a few tips to stay fit during a holiday: Avoid visiting a restaurant empty stomach. In such cases people end up eating much more. If you’re starving, eat a piece of fruit or have a glass of juice or water in the hotel itself. Later, while having lunch, fill your plate with lightly dressed salads, fish, seafood and lean meats. Fish and meats are high in proteins and iron. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Don’t eat unhealthy snacks or junk food while travelling. Otherwise, you will end up gaining extra kilos. Pack healthy items like fruits, juices and low-fat yoghurts. Don’t overeat. Order a nice salad as a starter and then either share the main course with your partner or go for selected delicacies. Also, eat slowly and chew the food properly. If there’s a mini bar in your hotel room, then lock it and hide the key. Look for healthier alternatives like local fresh fruits or salads. If you are abroad, then try out some local fruits which you don’t get here. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixA glass of wine or a bottle of beer with dinner is fine, but avoid too many drinks after the dinner as it may result in weight gain.Keep a bottle of water and some fruits in your bag so you don’t get tempted when you friends or family ask if you want any ice cream. Take out time and exercise for at least an hour daily even when you are out on a holiday. Nowadays hotels and resorts do have gymnasiums. You don’t need to get up early morning to exercise. Do it when you feel like.last_img read more
