By Martyn HermanLONDON, England (Reuters) – Ben Stokes stole England team mate James Anderson’s show with a sizzling six-wicket haul as West Indies slumped to 123 all out before the visitors roared back on an extraordinary opening day of the series-deciding third Test at Lord’s yesterday.With all eyes on Anderson as he edged towards his 500th Test wicket it was all-rounder Stokes who ripped through the West Indies either side of tea with career-best figures of six for 22 from 14.3 almost unplayable overs.The flame-haired 26-year-old seemed to have given England a stranglehold on the winner-takes-all match but by the close of play on a murky day made for swing bowling West Indies had reduced their hosts to 46-4, still 77 runs behind.Kemar Roach removed opening duo Mark Stoneman and Alastair Cook, both nicking behind to keeper Shane Dowrich.Skipper Jason Holder had under-pressure batsman Tom Westley lbw and then captured the prized wicket of Joe Root for one, to keep alive West Indies’ dream of a first series win in England since 1988.England were 24-4 at that stage before Stokes and Dawid Malan saw the hosts through to the close without further loss.“It was a difficult pitch to bat on, we would have liked to have had only one or two wickets down but overall we are happy,” Stokes, who grabbed his first five-wicket haul at the historic London ground to become only the eighth player to get his name on both Lord’s honours boards, said.Difficult was something of an understatement as batsmen from both sides endured a torrid day, with the ball hopping around under the Lord’s lights that blazed under grey skies.The toss was one neither West Indies skipper Holder or Root would have relished winning but Holder guessed right and felt obliged to bat first, hoping his side could reproduce the form that earned them a stunning five-wicket win at Headingley having been thrashed in the first Test at Edgbaston.After battling their way to an encouraging 78-2 with opener Kieran Powell and Headingley hero Shai Hope sharing a fluent 56-run third-wicket partnership it seemed West Indies had weathered the storm which saw Anderson reduce them to 22-2.They lost their last eight wickets for 45 runs though, with Stokes their chief tormentor.500-CLUBAnderson, beginning the day needing three wickets to join spinners Muttiah Muralitharan, Shane Warne, Anil Kumble and fellow pacemen Glenn McGrath and Courtney Walsh in the 500-club, was frustrated when Cook dropped Kraigg Brathwaite on three.But he got his man soon enough when keeper Jonny Bairstow pouched a catch and after a 40-minute rain delay Anderson moved to 499 when Kyle Hope edged him to a diving Bairstow.Shai Hope struck seven boundaries in his 29 before he was caught by Cook off the bowling of Toby Roland-Jones.In the next over Stokes stooped to catch Powell’s drive off his own bowling for 39, the highest score of the day.Jermaine Blackwood’s wild swing saw him bowled by Roland-Jones to leave West Indies on 100 for six before a fired-up Stokes polished off West Indies.Roston Chase had no chance with a devilish ball that straightened and hit off stump and two balls later Shane Dowrich nibbled at one to give Cook another catch.Holder had his middle stump clattered by a huge Stokes inswinger and Roach and Shannon Gabriel were lambs to the slaughter as Stokes got them in consecutive balls.“Bowling in the warm-up this morning, the ball was swinging, so it wasn’t surprising when we saw how much the ball was doing,” Stokes said.Soon it was England’s turn to suffer though as Roach and Gabriel steamed in with a series of 90mph deliveries.Stoneman went in the third over, nicking a Roach delivery to Dowrich. Cook scratched around for 43 balls before edging a superb delivery to Dowrich before Westley and Root succumbed to leave the game tantalisingly poised.last_img read more

first_imgToday’s roundtable was organized in collaboration with TiE Delhi, and had a special emphasis on the online education sector with three out of the five entrepreneurs presenting education businesses. Ankur Mehra and his associate Aditya started off by introducing GuruVantage. Ankur and Aditya have determined that training managers at various Indian companies need help with vetting the quality, methodology and infrastructures of various training institutes, training vendors and such. Sramana Mitra is a technology entrepreneur and strategy consultant in Silicon Valley. She has founded three companies, writes a business blog, Sramana Mitra on Strategy, and runs the 1M/1M initiative. She has a master’s degree in electrical engineering and computer science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Her Entrepreneur Journeys book series, Entrepreneur Journeys, Bootstrapping: Weapon Of Mass Reconstruction, Positioning: How To Test, Validate, and Bring Your Idea To Market and her latest volume Innovation: Need Of The Hour, as well as Vision India 2020, are all available from Amazon. In response to that, they are proposing a solution to do both pre-hiring and post-hiring. Prior to hiring, for example, training managers need to assess where candidates have been trained, and what is the quality of training that they provide. In addition, there are additional training needs post-hiring, which training managers address often by hiring training vendors.The key question that Guruvantage needs to answer is whether training managers are willing to pay for the solution or not. If the answer is yes, then the next question is how much are they willing to pay? What this leads us to is first, value proposition validation, then business model validation, followed by pricing model validation. Each stage of validation helps enhance the valuation of a company. And in 1M/1M, we always emphasize the best practice of building as much value, validation and valuation upfront.In addition, we had a specific discussion about segmentation alternatives – based on size of company, vertical, and geographical. Guruvantage has a large vision of doing this kind of training assessment for a wide variety of sectors ranging from engineering to business to the arts. All very well, but they have to pick a segment to enter through. As I told them, by trying to cater to everybody, you end up catering to nobody. You HAVE to go segment by segment.ARROWDevesh Verma was up next to present ARROW, a finishing school solution that helps college graduates become employable. Devesh addresses the issue that a large portion of Indian college grads are not employable because of a lack of essential skills, especially communication. Devesh has three colleges that have told him that they are willing to pay Rs. 150,000 for training 30 students on ARROW. He expects to be able to deliver a 30-student session within Rs. 130,000. Not bad. Now I want to know whether Devesh can find 100 colleges – tier B and tier C colleges since the tier A colleges tend to have their own offerings – who are willing to pay Rs. 150,000 for ARROW. If he can, then there is a business worth building here. And pay attention to the segmentation of who is adopting vs. who isn’t; it will provide great cues to where the highest velocity entry points to the market are.Devesh asked me, “Is the Indian education sector ready for something like ARROW?” My answer is: “A sector’s readiness is a function of the customers’ readiness. So by answering the question – Will more colleges buy? – you will also be able to answer the broad question.”Global ExpertsThen Rahul Jain presented Global Experts, a community of business experts who will be tutoring, coaching and mentoring business students. Rahul has assembled a lot of content on business and management curriculums, and wants to use that to attract potential customers who will then pay to access more personal engagements with experts. In essence, he is proposing a freemium model whereby he uses content to draw in users, and then try to convert a percentage of them to paying customers in the U.S. Well, the paid content model in the U.S. has really imploded, so I have some skepticism about the viability. There are some competitors who seem to have validated the business model to a degree, like http://www.studentoffortune.com. So Rahul’s next step is to SEO-optimize the content he has put together and harness a group of users ti see if he can convert a percentage of them (average freemium conversion rate is usually 2%) to paying customers. If Rahul can get to about 5,000 paying customers, paying $250 a year, then he can get to the $1M mark. The question is, can he attract 250,000 students with his free content and then convert 2% of those to paying customers?For these three and other online education entrepreneurs, I would like to take a moment and point you to some online education case studies on my blog. Take a look at Apex Learning, Archipelago Learning, KC Distance Learning, Revolution Prep, and Global English. Intelligent MonitoringNext Vikas Hazrati and Narinder Kumar discussed Intelligent Monitoring. Vikas and Narinder have identified an interesting pain point that IT managers seem to have: a large volume of alerts from various IT monitoring systems without the ability to actionable correlation analysis. They have feedback from three to five IT managers, including one that is willing to pay them to build a solution. To them, my advice is to leverage as much of the “consulting” money that clients are willing to pay to solve the problem, and use that cash to bootstrap the business. I love this kind of customer intimacy through working closely with customers, and getting paid for it. If they can talk to 100 IT managers in the SME segment and get 10 to 15 to pay up, the entire product design and development process can be financed by customers! I referred them to the Bootstrapping To Billions case study in Entrepreneur Journeys, Volume One.SimplogyUp last was Hasnain Zaheer for Simplogy, who wants to offer marketing strategy and execution services from Australia. My advice to him is to zero in on specific marketing processes that can be offered in a remote mode, which could be email marketing, or SEO, SEM, Web design – all those being highly competitive areas – but strategy consulting cannot really be sold online.I started doing my free Online Strategy Roundtables for entrepreneurs in the fall of 2008. These roundtables are the cornerstone programming of a global initiative that I have started called One Million by One Million (1M/1M). Its mission is to help a million entrepreneurs globally to reach $1 million in revenue and beyond, build $1 trillion in sustainable global GDP, and create 10 million jobs. In 1M/1M, I teach the EJ Methodology which is based on my Entrepreneur Journeys research, and emphasize bootstrapping, idea validation, and crisp positioning as some of the core principles of building strong fundamentals in early stage ventures. In addition, we are offering entrepreneurs access to investors and customers through our recently launched our 1M/1M Incubation Radar series. You can pitch to be featured on my blog following these instructions.The recording of this roundtable can be found here. Recordings of previous roundtables are all available here.

first_imgIndia opener KL Rahul was back in the nets on Tuesday after missing out the first Test due to viral fever but chief coach Ravi Shastri kept cards close to his chest about the stylish right-hander’s participation in the second Test.”Rahul is (doing) good. We are watching him closely. He went through some tough times and he was in the hospital for 2-3 days. Obviously, it has taken a lot out of him.”So we have to be very careful how we treat him, we are watching him very closely and he is getting better by the day,” Shastri said during media interaction ahead of the second Test beginning Thursday.Like skipper Virat Kohli, Shastri also spoke in same vein about having a good bench strength, now that Rahul is getting fit and Abhinav Mukund keeping himself in the hunt with an 81 in the second innings of the first Test.”When I have good bench strength, it is very good. When there is competition for places even better because that’s healthy competition and a good headache to have. Where you know if someone is injured someone else is ready and that is across all formats.”It is very good but ideally you want your core team to be fit and on the park as often as possible,” said Shastri.last_img read more

first_imgArsenal 1 Doncaster Rovers 0: Walcott hits winner for Wenger’s men Stephen Creek Last updated 2 years ago 04:48 21/9/2017 theowalcott-cropped Getty Images Jack Wilshere and Reiss Nelson both started for Arsenal as Theo Walcott scored the winner in a 1-0 League Cup victory over Doncaster Rovers. Theo Walcott scored his first goal of the season to earn Arsenal a 1-0 win over Doncaster Rovers and a place in the fourth round of the EFL Cup.Walcott, who had not netted a competitive goal for the Gunners since April, pounced in the 25th minute to make it 1-0 at the Emirates and at that stage it looked as though Arsenal would steamroller their League One opponents.Despite a glut of first-half chances the hosts failed to extend their lead and Doncaster, having frustrated Olivier Giroud as he sought his 100th goal for Arsenal, probed for an equaliser and gave the Premier League side a number of scares.

first_imgBrittany HobsonAPTN NewsEvery night Niki Dumas feeds herself through a tube.The 30-year-old can no longer stomach solid food.For the past four months Dumas has been relying on a daily tube feed to receive the nutrients she needs to live.Dumas lives with a rare abnormality called intestinal malrotation, which is a condition where the intestines are not in the correct anatomical position.“My organs are in the wrong place. My large and small bowels are completely twisted,” Dumas told APTN News from her home in Carberry, Man.People living with intestinal malrotation have a hard time digesting things.Because of this people can experience intense bouts of vomiting, nausea and overall discomfort.(“I run out of energy. I get really tired fast,” says Niki Dumas seen here in the hospital. Submitted photo)Dumas, who is originally from Mathias Colomb First Nation in northern Manitoba, has been sick since she was an infant but was only diagnosed with the condition in 2017.She was four months pregnant with her youngest at the time when she started experiencing violent spells of vomiting.She was hospitalized numerous times before doctors were finally able to determine what was wrong.Since then Dumas has been in and out hospitals every month.She has to travel from her home in Carberry to either Brandon or Winnipeg to receive treatment to help alleviate the pain.“I run out of energy. I get really tired fast,” said Dumas. “Half of the time I’m sleeping because I’m so uncomfortable.”“I just can’t be a mother to my children because I don’t have the energy.”Dumas has three children aged six, four and her youngest is now 15 months.She has undergone numerous surgeries to correct the issue including laparoscopic and open bowel surgery; she’s had her gall bladder and appendix removed; and the Ladd procedure, which is the most commonly used procedure to treat intestinal malrotation.Dumas had all but given up hope of a solution when through a Facebook support group, she learned about a specialized surgery option based at the Cleveland Clinic in the United States – the only problem is Manitoba Health won’t pay for it, she said.This appears to be an issue across the country.Last year Andrea Taylor, 32, traveled from her home in Prince Edward County, Ont., to the Cleveland Clinic on her own dime after the Ontario government refused to pay for the surgery.“The procedure has given me my life back,” Taylor said over the phone from her home. “It has given me more than what I had before.”Taylor was the first to tell Dumas about the surgery.She was diagnosed as a newborn and received the Ladd procedure at 12-weeks-old.“The Ladd procedure is a bit of a band-aide on a bullet hole. It’s really good in emergency situations but for overall gut function it kind of just sets things up for problems down the road,” said Taylor.(“The procedure has given me my life back,” says Andrea Taylor. Submitted photo)Those problems came throughout the years ultimately leading to complete gut failure in 2017.Taylor was placed on IV nutrition support for nine months. She had to quit her job as a teacher and move back home with her parents.Both Taylor and Dumas were essentially told the surgery is considered experimental and therefore would not be covered.Taylor’s family and friends spent months fundraising to cover costs.The nearby Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory also helped fundraise for the family. Taylor, who is non-Indigenous, worked at the school as well as her mother for most of her life.Taylor says governments need to be held accountable because lives are at risk if the surgery isn’t covered.Dumas has also started her own fundraising efforts through GoFundMe.LINK: https://www.gofundme.com/malrotation-of-the-bowelShe says doctors in Cleveland have estimated it could cost up to half a million dollars for travel and surgery.Last month, Dumas completed a five-day awareness walk from Carberry to Winnipeg where she ended at the Legislative Building.She called on the government to intervene.“I’m hoping…they help me get on my way to receive this life saving surgery that I need,” Dumas told reporters at the time.Since then, Dumas says she has received numerous messages of support but little has changed.Manitoba Health did send a Winnipeg man to Cleveland for the surgery last year.According to a government spokesperson, out of province procedures can be covered if a physician deems it necessary.Dumas says she hasn’t had much luck with her previous doctors.

Recently Finance Minister, Hon Washington Misick shared that government workers have likely begun to see that change since April 1; which was the original implementation date. May is also the month the Premier and Deputy Governor had announced that Civil Servants would see changes in their pay after a re-grading exercise. In March media and public sector workers were told that the range of increase in pay is 21% to 67% with those working in Education getting the largest leaps; fire officers are also seeing a big boost of around 60%. Government has allotted $9 million dollars to this recurrent TCIG expense; another quarter of a million dollars is pegged for education and training opportunities.
