African swine fever came after Lumpy virus, more than 100 pigs died

Several states in India have reported African swine fever (ASF). Now in view of this, orders have also been issued to kill pigs in many areas. In fact, a few days ago, the central government had warned Kerala to take all precautions against this threat. Let us tell you all that in Mizoram and Jharkhand also, there is talk of African swine fever spreading to wild animals. In fact, after the death of more than 100 pigs due to suspected African swine fever in the Ranchi district of Jharkhand on July 27, the animal husbandry department issued an alert and asked them to take precautionary measures. According to a report that has surfaced, an official said on Saturday that samples of the affected pigs have been sent to Bhopal's National Institute of High-Security Animal Diseases and the regional disease diagnostic laboratory in Kolkata to find out about the actual disease. At the same time, an advisory has been issued to all the districts of Jharkhand to take precautionary measures and follow protocols like COVID-19 in case of such an incident. Along with this, the department has also started a swine fever vaccination campaign. Let us tell you that in Mizoram also, there is talk of the spread of African swine fever in wild pigs. Dr Lalmingthanga, Joint Director, Department of Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Medicine here, told PTI-Bhasha that samples taken from the carcasses of wild boars found in two forest areas of Champhai district were sent to the National Institute of High-Security Animal Diseases in Bhopal. It has also been confirmed that these pigs have been killed by ASF. On the other hand, Dr Lalmingthanga, Joint Director, Department of Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Medicine, said that vaccination is the only option left to prevent the outbreak of this disease in pigs. At the same time, he said that it is now believed that as per the National Action Plan, the disease cannot be eradicated through existing containment measures, as the outbreak is now being considered an epidemic. What is African Swine Fever?- According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, African swine fever (AFS) is a very contagious and deadly disease, which can infect both farm-grown and wild pigs. African swine fever can have a mortality rate of up to 100% and the African swine virus can spread rapidly through physical fluid in direct contact from one infected pig to another.

He has also written (and sometimes directed) numerous screenplays and television series such as Collateral and Roadkill. We Travelled , just published in paperback, brings together reminiscences, reflections on his ideal theatre, political polemic and tributes to some of the artists he admires as well as a selection of his poetry, published for the first time. What led you to write and now publish poetry? I started writing poetry because [my wife] Nicole [Farhi, the fashion designer turned sculptor] complained that I never wrote about her. And I said, considering the kind of writer I was, it was probably a great compliment! I began with love poetry and then expanded from there. I published it privately as a 70th birthday present to myself There is obviously a poetry establishment in this country [and] people said I was very brave to write poetry when I knew nothing about the state of poetry.

Prey review stylish Predator prequel rooted in Native American history

The horror sci-fi series is cleverly revived by 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg, with Amber Midthunder commanding as a tracker with a secret weapon The word prequel makes my heart sink. So often its just a cynical means to squeeze a little more juice out of an already dead and desiccated franchise, or a reboot that paints a layer of self-referential irony over a much-loved original. But Prey is different. Directed by Dan Trachtenberg ( 10 Cloverfield Lane ), its a prequel to the Predator series that stays true to the essence of the original stylishly violent, stickily graphic, impossibly tense while also working satisfyingly as a self-contained entity. The setting is the land of the Comanche nation, 300 years ago; the central character is Naru (the formidable Amber Midthunder), a warrior and expert tracker whose skills have been honed by a lifetime of close combat against the forces of the patriarchy. But ingrained sexism works in her favour: the assumption that as a woman shes not a credible threat turns out to be her secret weapon. That and her self-invented elasticated axe device think a murderous version of paddle ball. Prey is available on Hulu in the US and Disney+ elsewhere Continue reading...

Streaming: the best video game film adaptations

Sonic the Hedgehog 2, like Super Mario Bros, assorted Lara Crofts and all things Resident Evil, seeks the sweet spot between knowing silliness and serious action The humble video game movie tends to get it from all sides. Critics turn up their noses and gaming nerds are often equally hard to please, albeit on very different points of principle. Kids are perhaps the most forgiving demographic for the video game film, which is why the belated Sonic the Hedgehog film franchise has done well to squarely target them. Now out on DVD and streaming, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 replicates the first films garish formula of faintly ironic in-jokery, chase-heavy action embellished with garish, primary-coloured CGI and industrial-strength hamming by Jim Carrey as Sonics nemesis, Dr Robotnik. It gets the job done, perhaps a little too thoroughly at more than two hours in length. Continue reading...

But, like the presidential election, this time too, the contest looks one-sided. In terms of statistics, Jagdeep Dhankhar is leading in this race. On behalf of the opposition, Margaret Alva is definitely contesting the election, but she does not appear to be in the competition of Dhankhar. In fact, one needs at least 394 votes to win the vice presidential election. Whoever achieves this figure, victory is confirmed.

That is why Jagdeep Dhankhar's victory in the election is considered to be certain. At present, the BJP has 303 MPs in the Lok Sabha and 93 MPs in the Rajya Sabha, in such a situation, the number of BJP MPs (396) is looking enough to give Dhankhar a victory in the vice-presidential election.

If Hardik Pandya and Rishabh Pant face the last 12 balls, then Team India has to face defeat!

Indian team's star all-rounder player Hardik Pandya and wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant are excellent middle-order batsmen. On some occasions, Rishabh Pant has also opened for the Indian team. A century partnership between Pant and Hardik Pandya for the fifth wicket against England. However, former Pakistan captain Rashid Latif does not have confidence in his abilities to score more runs in the death overs. The former Pakistani captain has made a big claim that Team India is more likely to lose if Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya are left to finish the game with the ball with 12 balls to spare for the Indian team. But if Pant and Hardik have to play with Karthik, it means that the top order has faltered. Rashid Latif while talking about Dinesh Karthik on the YouTube show Caught Behind said- Dinesh Karthik is fine in franchise cricket. But when it comes to playing for Team India, he has three to four quality batsmen. Where and how will he bat in 20 overs? I believe it is fine till franchise cricket, but if they are getting to bat against international teams like Pakistan and Australia, it means the top order is damaged.

Ranchi: BJP MP Nishikant Dubey on Friday made a big claim in the Lok Sabha that 1800 schools in Jharkhand are going on holiday on Friday instead of Sunday. He further said that the incident is proof that the country is moving towards Islamisation. Raising the issue during zero hours in the Lok Sabha, he said the matter should be investigated by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) so that the truth can be exposed and a strong message can be sent to the separatists. The BJP MP said, I am drawing attention to the Islamisation taking place in the state of Jharkhand. In some districts of the state, the balance of population has changed. Bangladesh is close and that's why it's happening. It has suddenly come to light that there are 1800 such schools in Jharkhand which have added Urdu words to their names. These schools do not have holidays on Sundays but on Fridays. Nishikant Dubey said, The country is moving towards Islamization. Jharkhand is giving way to him. It should be investigated by the NIA. It should send a strong message. It will not be tolerated at any cost.''

These coaches, combined with the talent, local grasp and familiarisation of the ecosystem possessed by Roddy, Andrew, Neil and Sharon, along with their long-standing association with the CPL and Barbados, will form the core coaching staff for the 2022 season.

Mission: Impossible director talks about Tom Cruise leaving the franchise

Mission: Impossible director Christopher McQuarrie addressed rumours about Tom Cruise leaving the franchise, during an interview with Light the Fuse podcast. In previous reports by Variety, per ET Canada, sources revealed that Cruise was planning an exit from the franchise after its upcoming two sequels in 2023 and 2024 as they shared that the two flicks will act as a sendoff for Cruises Ethan Hunt character. Neither denying nor confirming the rumours McQuarrie further added, Let me tell you, Ive been working with Tom Cruise for 15 years and I cannot tell you the number of times Ive been standing next to the man, witnessed an event and then read about it in the trades the next day and none of what they describe is actually true. Recalling an incident from years ago he added, We were in Birmingham shooting a scene between Tom and Haley [Atwell]. The next day I read an article in the paper that said Tom and four other guests went out to dinner at an Indian restaurant. I read that Tom insisted on sitting at a table not in a private room but in the main restaurant with the other diners and that Tom ordered three orders of chicken masala because he liked it so much. He added, I called Tom the next day and said, Theres something weird about this article. Its 100 per cent factually correct! McQuarrie quipped, Thats the first time Ive read an article in which everything happened exactly as written.

'This state is made of different metal..,' CM Hemant's big statement amid political turmoil in Jharkhand

Ranchi: Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren on Thursday made serious allegations against the BJP while talking to the media. He said the BJP wants to keep democracy in its pocket through money power. He wants to buy democracy. From Maharashtra to Jharkhand, they are only working on the sole agenda of forming and toppling the government. On the arrest of 3 Congress MLAs in West Bengal, he said that the law has done its job. He said that the politics of Jharkhand may be very hot, but the ability to make bread on the tawa here is not at all. He said that the state is made of a different metal. Not everyone is going to melt here. On the Enforcement Directorate's action, Soren said that this has been the case with those who campaign for the people. He said that guruji (Shibu Soren) was also not subjected to atrocities, but his caravan increased. He said he and his workers will respond to every conspiracy of the BJP. On the allegations of toppling the Jharkhand government, the Chief Minister said that the BJP, of course, denied this, but it is behind the game that is taking place in Jharkhand. When the game of toppling the government was played in Maharashtra from Guwahati, even at that time, the BJP had denied that it was away from everything. Hemant Soren said that the BJP is only engaged in Hindu-Muslim disputes and indo-Pakistan. He doesn't mean anything to people. He said the people are the most important. Justice must be delivered in his court. On the action of the Enforcement Directorate in the illegal mining case, the Chief Minister said that action is being taken against his close associates but the court is above the ED. The Enforcement Directorate does not in itself decide right and wrong in the court. Chief Minister Hemant Soren said that now a new thing is being seen the police of one state is fighting with another. In fact, the CID team of West Bengal, which had gone to investigate Assam and Delhi in the Jharkhand cash scandal case, was taken into custody by the police there the previous day.

Prey review Predator prequel gives a nifty spin to a bloated franchise

The world wasnt calling out for yet another Predator movie but 10 Cloverfield Lanes Dan Trachtenberg finds mileage in a light-footed prequel led by Native Americans Theres an obvious lack of creative necessity to Hollywoods overwhelming churn of prequels, sequels, remakes, reboots and revisions, more so by the minute, as studio-owned streaming services plunder back catalogues for more ways they can exploit known properties. Upcoming TV shows based on Fatal Attraction, Alien, Grease, Mr and Mrs Smith, The Lord of the Rings and Reality Bites and films based on The Killer, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Crow, White Men Cant Jump, Road House, Scarface and The Bodyguard are all so commercially inevitable that its almost hard to be angry, each new announcement deserving little more than a resigned shrug. Its business, not pleasure. So on the rare occasion that this practice offers up something that feels even mildly outside of the algorithm, as if perhaps maybe a human might have come up with it rather than a spreadsheet, its hard not to give it more credit than it often deserves. Fox AKA Disney AKA Hulu AKA Disney+ in international territories, has dragged the Predator series back to life once again for a seventh outing (two Predators, two Alien vs Predators, a Predators and a The Predator make six) but rather than continuing down the same well-trodden road, theyve taken a left-turn and then gone back around 300 years.

Scott Styris Questions KL Rahul For Missing 'A Lot Of Cricket'

Former New Zealand all-rounder Scott Styris feels it may not be easy for opener KL Rahul to fit into the scheme of things after being out of cricketing action since May this year. Rahul has been out of competitive cricketing action since featuring in the IPL 2022 Eliminator on May 25 in Kolkata. His team, debutants Lucknow Super Giants, lost to Royal Challengers Bangalore by 14 runs at Eden Gardens. He was then named as captain for India's five-match T20I series at home against South Africa in June. But a right groin injury on the eve of the first match in New Delhi ruled him out of the series. Rahul then flied to Germany for undergoing a sports hernia surgery in Germany that ruled out of England tour and ODIs against West Indies too. He had been recovering at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru, but a positive Covid-19 result meant that he missed out on selection for T20Is against the West Indies and was not named in upcoming three-match ODI series against Zimbabwe. It's a different mindset for players because they don't want to be out and they don't want to be giving other players opportunities. I know India has a very good culture within its group, so it doesn't mind allowing other players opportunities all the time. I know as a player myself, you never wanted to give somebody else a chance to take your spot. So with the fact that he's out injured and he's away from the team at the moment, it just means that other players are able to do what Suryakumar is doing, what Rishabh Pant is doing, getting in there, taking the chance scoring runs and really posing the selectors some questions saying, do we actually need KL Rahul? Is he going to be in good form when he comes back? He has missed a lot of cricket, a lot of question marks now present themselves just because he's been able to give other players that opportunity, said Styris on 'Sports Over The Top' show on Sports18. Also Read: Scorecard It is widely expected that Rahul, who last played a T20I for India against New Zealand in Ranchi last year, will be fit in time for Asia Cup in the UAE and subsequently, the three-match T20I series against Australia and South Africa at home before the start of Men's T20 World Cup in Australia in October-November.

People gave befitting reply to Jayant Sinha, who said- 'Where is price rise?'

Ranchi: Thecommon people have been troubled by the rising inflation in India. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has also admitted this in the Lok Sabha. But BJP MP Jayant Sinha has dismissed the issue of price rise. According to him, inflation is nowhere to be seen and that is why the Opposition is also not getting to see it anywhere. Now this one statement by Jayant Sinha has further angered those who have already become worried about the rising inflation. It is in Jayant Sinha's parliamentary constituency Hazaribagh that people are suffering from the price rise. The media has discussed it with the people of Hazaribagh. They have asked questions on price rise, and they have asked for a report on the work of the government. From what has now come out, it is clear that people are angry with the price rise as well as the indifference of the government. According to the local resident, if any government comes, inflation goes up. They are not able to teach the children or do anything, the man is eating and drinking. At the same time, Dev Kumar Sinha has said in a more strident manner that the GST of foodgrains should be reduced, those who are poor are facing inflation. The MP should come and see whether there is inflation or not. Due to the same discussion, some people also came out who made it clear that MP Jayant Sinha has not come to his parliamentary constituency after winning. That is why heis not considering inflation an issue. Now, apart from the people, the opposition is also rejecting these claims of Jayant Sinha. But Sinha himself has stuck to his claims. According to him, the decisions taken by the Modi government to contain inflation have been unmatched. The poor were given ration, electricity, and gas cylinders. In such a situation, no one is worried but happy.

'Delighted' With Axar Patel's Batting, Says Delhi Capitals Assistant Coach Pravin Amre

In the last couple of years, left-arm spin all-rounder Axar Patel's batting stocks have risen in the cricketing world. The proof of it was seen in his unbeaten knock of 64 off 35 balls, also his maiden half-century in ODI cricket which won India the second ODI match and series against West Indies in Trinidad. Pravin Amre, the assistant coach for Delhi Capitals, a side Axar has been part of since 2019, expressed delight over the all-rounder's recent great batting show while pointing out that he had been doing the same for his IPL team. Amre knows it very well as during the IPL season in October 2020, Axar had hit left-arm spin all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja for three sixes in the last over to win a match in Sharjah for Delhi against Chennai Super Kings. More recently in IPL 2022, Axar walked out to bat when Delhi was tottering at 104-6 in a chase of 178 and took the side home against Mumbai Indians with an unbeaten 38 off 17 balls in their opening match at Brabourne Stadium. We have to give a lot of credit to the owners also, because they are the ones who got him traded from Punjab (Axar was bought by Delhi for INR 5 crores in player auction ahead of 2019 IPL season) and believed that he can be an asset for the Delhi Capitals. He has been doing extremely well for the last three years. We all believe that he is going to be a genuine all rounder and this is what he is actually delivering for Team India. We are very delighted because he has done the same for us in Delhi Capitals, like in a couple of matches he contributed for us winning with the bat also. We know how good a bowler he is, but his all-rounder role is important, especially in T20 cricket. I am looking forward to him doing the same thing for team India in the World Cup, said Amre to IANS on the sidelines of the franchise launching their first cricket academy in Noida. One of Amre's wards, batter Shreyas Iyer, hasn't looked comfortable of late while playing against the short ball in IPL and international cricket. Asked about Iyer's short-ball issues, Amre remarked, The itinerary is such that there is no time to get a break. They are traveling continuously with the team. But I am sure that he's more matured now and has played more cricket now. I think that's where he will adjust himself and that is what the beauty of the game is. So many times, you have to be on your own to take those calls and make those small-small adjustments. Amre signed off by expressing his pleasure with Delhi skipper and India wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant producing great batting performances in international cricket. Currently featuring in T20I series against the West Indies, Pant had a memorable England tour, making 146 and 57 in rescheduled fifth Test at Edgbaston and 125 not out in ODI series decider at Edgbaston. Also Read: Scorecard I will say that the IPL experience has really helped him to go out and deliver for team India's success. Very happy to see him contributing because he is a guy who is single-handedly a match-winner, for team India also. It's good and we are really hoping that he contributes in the upcoming series also.

DC Assistant Coach Pravin Amre Opens-Up On His Coaching Philosophy

Former India cricketer Pravin Amre has been a very sought-after coach in the cricketing circle. From being the coach of India Under-19 side and for Mumbai in the domestic cricket circuit, Amre has also served as a talent scout for IPL teams Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals. Apart from being the personal batting coaches to players like Suresh Raina, Robin Uthappa, Ajinkya Rahane and Shreyas Iyer among others, Amre is currently relishing his role as the assistant coach of Delhi Capitals. On the sidelines of Delhi Capitals opening their first academy in Noida, Amre, who played 11 Tests and 37 ODIs for India in the early 1990s and scored a century on his Test debut against South Africa at Durban in 1992, spoke to IANS about his coaching philosophy, how he got into cricket coaching and usage of data in the game. Q. How would you describe your coaching philosophy? A. My philosophy is simple. What I learnt from my guru (Ramakant) Achrekar sir, it's all about taking a player to the next level. I think that's always a challenge. When we start from U-15, how you can take it to U-19, U-19 to Ranji, Ranji to India. So, I think this goes on. It's like a journey, like you go with that players' journey and you also enjoy their success. So, it's a long journey and you start from academies. Q. Can you explain how you got into coaching? Was it something which came or was this path already in your mind? A. To me personally, I never thought I will be a coach. I never thought my temperament is for a coach. But yes, Achrekar sir told me that I should do this job. I have really enjoyed this. I started in 2000 and now it's 2022. So, it's a long journey and I learnt a lot. I am really thankful because to play as a cricketer, your approach is different. But when you become a coach, your approach is different. We have to handle many cricketers, then man management comes, then you have to be knowledgeable when you have to solve their problem. Specially when I am focusing on my career as a batting specialist coach, there are a lot of complicated things which happen in a batsman's mind. We have to address that and also, technology has come which helps us. More than anything important, there is no substitute to experience and that matters sometimes. We as coaches learn everyday and that is what pushes us to go to the next level. Q. In your playing days, data wasn't that big part of the game as it is right now. To what extent do you use data and equip the batters with it? A. It's important, and I will say it's one tool. It's like some percentage, you can improve your game. But the whole thing is, like you should have your own game and have the basic skills right. So, that will take you there. So many times you do comparison and too many analysis sometimes makes you paralysis. It's very important then to focus on your own game. As you rightly said, when we played cricket, there was no such data. But I think the runs was important and now also, plus in future scoring runs will always be an important factor. Q. The cricketing schedule has become very hectic. How do you see the batters cope up with the challenge of playing all formats of the game consistently? A. Yes, it's challenging, it's not that easy. But ultimately you have to set your mind. A good mindset will be important and, in a calendar, this is what will happen there. So, it's important to use the days you will get in preparing for that type of format. Time is going to be like that, so the better a player adjusts to that quickly so that it would be good for their own performance. Q. When a batter faces some difficulty during the IPL, how do you go about solving that issue faced by him? A. It is always person to person. In IPL, it is such a thing that you don't meet only just one month before, talking about all the abroad players. That's really challenging for a coach because when I was handling the Mumbai Ranji team, it was a different thing. You are there with players for ten months. Here, it's really challenging for the coaches also but you find a way because of trust. If players have trust with the coaches, it becomes basically easy. Q. If a youngster is coming to you for coaching, what are the first things which you notice about him/her? A. This game is all about skill. As a coach, we see the setup, his stance, grip and how he is playing the ball, his impact point and body balance. So many things are there, like as a coach you see whether the decision making, he is doing is right or wrong. Those are the things which matter, like a spark is there, then you make that judgement easily. With experience, we learn how to make those decisions, like this boy has got the talent. Q. You have also served as a scout in the IPL. How has that experience been for you? A. When you are scouting, you have to travel a lot and then you see them actually in the matches. More important is, the situation he is batting and how he handles that situation and won the game for the particular team. This what all we notice, like this boy has got potential and he can be a match-winner for us. There is excitement, like you pick that boy, back him and does well to win matches for the franchise. It gets really exciting to go and hunt the real good talent. Q. Your thoughts on Delhi Capitals opening their first academy in Noida? Also Read: Scorecard A. Well, I think it's a great initiative. We are extremely delighted and also happy to see that there's a full-sized ground. I am sure that with our DC management, we will have the vision to get this ground for a longer period because it's going to be a necessity for us to grow Delhi Capitals academy here. The boys, at a young age, they will get to play on a full-sized wicket. I am very personally excited to see this ground.
