India vs United Arab Emirates, ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 Match 21 Preview ...

Flashback to Triangular series between Australia, England and India and yes a dismal performance by India is what comes to mind. No one at that time would have thought Team India will defeat both Pakistan and South Africa so supremely. But that is what the present is. A resurgent looking India has emerged in ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 and are playing like defending champions, in fact World Champions. After two high intensity fixtures, India now faces minnows United Arab Emirates at WACA Ground, Perth on February 28. Catch the Updated POINTS TABLE OF 2015 CRICKET WORLD CUP here. With scores of over 300 in both the preceding matches India’s batting looks in its groove with Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli performing consistently. And the likes of Suresh Raina and Ajinkya Rahane chipping in. However, in both the matches India failed to accelerate towards the end and lost too many wickets. This is one area of concern (may be of not that much intensity) along with Rohit Sharma in top order, otherwise Indian batting is back dominating charts. Watch: India fan taunts a minnow UAE supporter Bowling was always India’s weak-link, but the way bowlers dished out strong performance against Pakistan and South Africa was phenomenal. Backed by some superb fielding and MS Dhoni’s astute field placings, bowlers have aptly contributed to India’s victories so far. Going into this match India can afford to try and test bench strength.

India fourth largest start-up hub in world: Economic Survey 2015

India has emerged as the world’s fourth largest hub for start-ups with over 3,100 of them, driven by “hyper growth” in technology and software products in the country, according to the Economic Survey 2014-15. The Indian IT-BPM industry, which raked in revenues of USD 119 billion in 2014-15, is being driven by greater automation, expanding omni-channel presence and application of analytics across the entire value chain, the survey added. “The year also witnessed hyper-growth in the technology start-ups and software product landscape, India ranking as the fourth largest start-up hub in the world with over 3,100 start-ups in the country,” it said.

Coffee intake linked to reduced risk of MS

A new study set to be presented at the American Academy of Neurology's 67th Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, suggests yet another potential health benefit of coffee consumption: it could reduce the risk of multiple sclerosis. The risk of MS could be reduced by drinking at least four cups of coffee a day, according to the researchers. It is estimated that more than 2.3 million people worldwide have multiple sclerosis (MS), a chronic disease of the central nervous system - the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. MS is thought to be an autoimmune disease, whereby immune-system induced inflammation damages the protective coating of nerve fibers, called myelin. Symptoms of MS vary but commonly include loss of balance and coordination, blurred vision, extreme fatigue, tremors and numbness. Past studies have suggested that coffee consumption may protect against other neurological diseases, including Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease. In this latest study, researchers say the beverage could also protect against MS. To reach their findings, study author Dr. Ellen Mowry, of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, MD, and colleagues analyzed data from two separate population-based case-control studies that looked at the link between coffee consumption and MS. The first study was a Swedish study involving 1,629 people with MS and 2,807 healthy controls, while the second study was a US study involving 1,159 people with MS and 1,172 healthy controls. Both stu...  

As Nuclear Talks Progress, 11% in US See Iran Favorably

Consistent with past years, 11% see Iran favorably 77% say potential Iranian nukes are a critical threat Republicans far more likely to say Iran is critical threat WASHINGTON, D.C. -- As the United States and several other nations continue to negotiate what would be a landmark agreement to limit Iran's production of nuclear weapons, more than eight in 10 Americans view Iran unfavorably (84%). Only 11% have a favorable view of the country. Despite this potential thaw in Iranian-U.S. relations, Americans' views on its long-time foe have remained unchanged for 26 years. Iran's historical favorable average of 11% is the lowest of 22 countries Gallup asked about in this year's World Affairs poll, conducted Feb. 8-11 -- a list that includes such prominent U.S. adversaries as Russia, Syria and North Korea. Since the Islamic Revolution of 1979 toppled the pro-U.S. government in Iran, the two countries have been antagonists, and this has been borne out in U.S. public opinion. When Gallup first asked Americans to rate Iran, in 1989, 5% said they saw the country favorably. Over the past decade, however, U.S.-Iranian relations have developed an unexpected element of intrigue. In January 2002, then-President George W. Bush famously included Iran -- along with North Korea and an Iraq then controlled by Saddam Hussein -- in what he called "an axis of evil," though Bush's inclusion of Iran in this trio did nothing to damage that nation's already battered standing with Americans. After the A...  

Henry says Arsenal job would be a dream

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner believes Arsene Wenger and staff are putting together a strong squad, while Shaka Hislop thinks the Gunners boss should have left after winning the FA Cup. Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has said it would be a "dream" to manage the club one day but said: "I need to learn first." Henry, the club's all-time leading goal-scorer, is currently working at Arsenal as a youth coach in addition to his TV punditry work after announcing his retirement last year. The 37-year-old told "The Jonathan Ross Show," in an interview to be broadcast on Saturday, that he would relish the chance to succeed Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, who is again under fire after Wednesday's 3-1 defeat to Monaco, but did not feel he was ready yet. "I don't know what Arsene wants to do and how long he wants to stay," he said in quotes reported by the Daily Mirror. "But I just want to be equipped -- to be in the position, maybe one day to be a manager. "Being the manager of Arsenal FC would be a dream. I need to learn first. That is the most important thing." He added: "I could not say 'no' to Arsenal, so I would say 'yes'. It should be great."

Medical and health charges in Malaysia the cheapest in the world, says PM

NAJIB: Malaysia was placed third out of 24 countries in the world in the provision of health facilities. - File Photo The content may have been removed, or is temporarily unavailable. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please try again later. SRI AMAN: The medical and health charges imposed by government hospitals and clinics in Malaysia are the cheapest in the world, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Tun Razak. He said the government not only spent a large amount of money providing health service facilities but also imposed the lowest fees in the world on patients. "When an outpatient sees a doctor, the person needs only pay RM1, while a fee of RM5 is charged if he/she goes to a specialist doctor, and medicine is given free. "There is no other health system in the world which charges such low a rate. Generally, the health subsidy in Malaysia is at 98 per cent, which means that 98 per cent of the health costs for every patient is borne by the government," he said. The Prime Minister was speaking at the ceremony to lay down the foundation stone for the Sri Aman Minor Specialist Hospital here today.    “This shows that the health system in Malaysia is among the best in the world. In fact, if we do an analysis of the cost and service provided, I dare to say that the health system in Malaysia is the best in the world," he added. He said Malaysia was ranked the third best out of 24 countries in the world in the provision of health facilities. Meanwhile, ...  

Manchester United transfer gossip: £30m Raphael Varane bid, Nathaniel Clyne ...

Raphael Varane is probably up there with Mats Hummels and Diego Godin as one of the eminent centre-backs Manchester United fans want at the club next season. So Reds will be pleased to hear that Louis van Gaal has reportedly sanctioned a £30m bid for the Real Madrid defender. Tragicomically, United could have had Varane back in 2011 but, according to the Frenchman, decided to sign Phil Jones instead. It's been six-and-a-half years since Rafael da Silva made his United debut and it has apparently taken less than a year for Van Gaal to lose patience. The Brazilian, still only 24, looks set to leave Old Trafford in the summer as United weigh up a bid for Southampton's excellent right-back Nathaniel Clyne. Rafael is out of contract next year and after Antonio Valencia signed a three-year deal in the summer and Paddy McNair extended his stay earlier this month, the signs are ominous for the popular twin. Clyne, whose contract also expires in 2016, is wanted by Chelsea, too. Click below for a gallery of the dream team United fans want to see in 2015-16 VIEW GALLERY ...  

Gonzaga's Kyle Wiltjer Discovers Inner Superstar After Transfer from Kentucky

SPOKANE, Wash.— He'd been told all season that he wasn't good enough.Whether it came from rowdy Arizona students during warm-ups, hecklers seated near the bench at BYU or fans needling him as he boarded the bus at San Francisco, someone was always there to tease Gonzaga's Kyle Wiltjer about his career at his previous school—the place where he won a national championship.Finally, Wiltjer cracked."Nice shot, Kyle!" someone yelled from the Santa Clara stands Feb. 5. "No wonder you couldn't cut it at Kentucky."Moments later, instead of showing mercy and dribbling out the clock in a 77-63 win, Wiltjer burst into the lane for a two-handed "take-that" slam as time expired. The road crowd peppered Wiltjer with boos as he trotted off the court. By the end of the next day, the 6'10" forward had phoned Santa Clara coach Kerry Keating and one of his players to apologize for his poor sportsmanship.."That dunk was so out of character," Gonzaga coach Mark Few says. "I don't know why he'd give a comment like that any credence."Few smirks."I mean, everyone knows Kyle can play," he says.Wiltjer has proven that and more during his first season at Gonzaga, where he leads the third-ranked Zags with 17.0 points per game while shooting 54 percent from the field.In one of the top performances of the college basketball season to date, Wiltjer scored 45 points in a Feb. 19 victory at Pacific. Two nights later he hit some key baskets down the stretch to help Gonzaga rally from a 17-point...

Michigan Football: Predictions for Spring Practice

Tony Ding/Associated Press Shane Morris and Russell Bellomy (who has left the program) Jim Harbaugh is known for brutal honesty, whether tweaking opposing coaches or his own players. Fans and media have diligently waited for Harbaugh to unload on rivals Ohio State and Michigan State or perhaps take a shot at former collegiate and NFL rival Pete Carroll for falling short of the Super Bowl. Ted S. Warren/Associated Press But Harbaugh has been remarkably restrained. Since his opening press conference he has resisted the urge to be controversial, choosing rather to defer to coach speak rather than provide grist for the media or bulletin-board material for a future opponent. So far at Michigan he's remained in check, but things are about to get very interesting now that practice has begun in Ann Arbor. Harbaugh made his intentions clear on ESPN Radio last month: There's a great saying: You never get a second chance to make a first impression. I’m going into this not watching a lot of tape of the current team, because I want to make our own evaluation and have everybody make a clean slate and a fresh start. They're my guys. They're going to know that I'm in their corner and they're in my corner and we're in each other's corner. Whatever these players did good or bad before now has been wiped away. This approach was also mentioned by defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin after the second day of practice: What I want to do is make sure all these guys, and I told them this wh...
