Do you get a rush every time you watch a movie like Cliffhanger? Has it inspired you to take up rock climbing as a sport? If yes, then this new sport–which is a more thrilling variety of rock climbing–is right up your alley.Bouldering is a fast-growing adventure sport globally. No rope, no harnesses, no protection–that’s what bouldering is all about.Basically, a climber assesses the rock or boulder, and then climbs it without any assistance. Sounds simple, and quite like free solo climbing? Well, it isn’t.Picture courtesy: Instagram/aae_kae Bouldering, unlike free solo climbing, does not have long stretches to climb. Usually, the bouldering problem (path) is not longer than six metres or 20 feet.Also Read: Maharashtra govt trying to repackage Sarangkheda Festival as adventure tourism destination Picture courtesy: Instagram/karchoongThis sport, while gaining popularity enough to be included as an official sport in the 2018 Asian Games as well as in the 2020 Olympics, is quite new to India.Picture courtesy: Instagram/pedro_gomes A new film by 101India, Bouldering: Life On The Rocks, shows that it was a legendary British climber who first opened the bouldering scene in India.

Rashid Khan, the world’s No.3 ODI bowler, bowled the most expensive spell in World Cup history at Old Trafford on Tuesday. Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan leaked 110 runs off 9 overs as England amassed 397 for 6 off their 50 overs.Last year, Rashid Khan had become the youngest No.1 in the ICC’s rankings for ODI bowlers. Currently ranked 3rd, Rashid had another spectacular stint for Sunrisers Hyderabad and much was expected from him as Afghanistan geared up for their 3rd World Cup.However, Rashid Khan had an ordinary time in the World Cup before the game against England. He returned figures of 1 for 52 against Australia before picking up 2 for 17 against Sri Lanka. He went for 45 runs without picking up a wicket against South Africa.Rashid Khan was to have a nightmarish game against England on a flat pitch.As Eoin Morgan (148), Jonny Bairstow (90) and Joe Root (88) destroyed Afghanistan, Rashid Khan, their biggest star came under the most serious attack.Rashid Khan gave away 110 runs off his 9 overs to bowl the most expensive spell in a World Cup match. His spell is now the second most expensive in World Cup history.Here are the 4 most expensive spells in World Cup history:0/110 (9) Rashid Khan (AFG) v England (2019)2/105 (12) Martin Snedden (NZ) v England (1983)1/104 (10) Jason Holder (WI) v South Africa (2015)2/101 (10) Dawlat Zadran (AFG) v Australia (2015)Meanwhile, Eoin Morgan hit the 4th fastest hundred and broke the record for most sixes in ODI innings. The record was previously held by Rohit Sharma, Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers.England also broke their own record for most sixes in an innings with 25 sixes as they finished with 397 for 6 off their 50 overs – the 6th highest team total in a World Cup match.advertisementAlso Read | Eoin Morgan hits 4th fastest hundred in World Cup historyAlso Read | World Cup 2019: This India team intimidates Pakistan, says Waqar YounisAlso See:
AUSTIN, TX – SEPTEMBER 22: A general view taken during the game between the Texas Longhorns and the Rice Owls on September 22, 2007 at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium in Austin, Texas. Texas won 58-14. (Photo by Brian Bahr/Getty Images)Sophomore quarterback Sam Ehlinger had a breakout season for Texas football, helping the Longhorns reach the upcoming Sugar Bowl, where they will face Georgia. Behind him, however, there are growing depth concerns at the position for Tom Herman’s club.Earlier today, former four-star recruit Cameron Rising added himself to the NCAA transfer portal. He isn’t officially leaving the team, but he is exploring the option.Now, one of his class and positionmates has made the same move.According to a report by Chip Brown, another former four-star quarterback, Casey Thompson, has also added his name to the transfer portal.Now, according to Brown at 247, Tom Herman is trying to convince his young quarterbacks to stay with the program.According to the report, the two have different concerns about their futures within the Texas football program:According to sources, Rising, a pro-style passer, is concerned about the structure of the Texas offense and current quarterback Sam Ehlinger’s 143 rushing attempts, while Thompson, who served as Texas’ scout-team quarterback, is concerned about where he fits into the pecking order at quarterback.Ehlinger is the clear-cut QB1 for Herman, and the team adds talented 2019 recruit Roschon Johnson, who signed with the Longhorns this week. Texas could lose three quarterbacks this off-season though.Thompson and Rising are both at least exploring their options, while Shane Buechele, the 2016 starter who was injured for half of last season before losing the job to Ehlinger, is a potential grad transfer candidate.One would think that at least one of Rising or Thompson would stay since Ehlinger could be a 2020 NFL Draft candidate, but this could become a very precarious situation for Herman and his staff.[247Sports]
No flag, no anthem for Russian pole vaulter Anzhelika Sidorova who won gold at IAAF World Championships
Associated Press DohaSeptember 30, 2019UPDATED: September 30, 2019 11:06 IST Sidorova, center, competing as a neutral athlete, celebrates with Katerina Stefanidi, left, and Sandi Morris, right (AP)HIGHLIGHTSAnzhelika Sidorova competed in a muted blue uniformAn IAAF themed song would be played during the medal ceremony of Sidorova instead of the Russian anthemSidorova’s neutral status bans her from displaying any national symbolsThree medalists on the victory lap. Only two with flags.That’s the reality for Russian pole vaulter Anzhelika Sidorova after winning gold at the world championships on Sunday, officially as a neutral athlete.But pole vaulting’s a sisterhood and Sidorova’s defeated rival, Sandi Morris of the United States, was her strongest advocate despite the doping sanctions on the Russian team.”Sidorova is a friend of mine and she can’t help what’s going on politically,” Morris said.”If I were her, I would have done the same thing. Go out there and fight to compete, regardless of what’s going on in my country. I don’t necessarily think it’s a bad thing because the athletes are most important. If she’s clean, she’s clean, and I honestly believe she is.”Morris’ show of affection came despite what she called a “bittersweet” day big jumps but another silver to go with her second places at the 2016 Olympics and 2017 worlds.Sidorova competed in a muted blue uniform. Her neutral status, awarded by track’s governing body after vetting of her drug-test record, allows her to compete internationally unlike most Russians but bans her from displaying any national symbols. Track has taken the strongest line of any major federation against Russian doping, though Russia’s harshest critics would favor a ban against all Russian athletes.At Monday’s medal ceremony the stirring Russian anthem will be replaced by music composed for the IAAF.”Of course I’m not really comfortable with it all, but I’m so happy. I was just so happy, I didn’t really think about it,” Sidorova said of her flag-free victory lap. “Gold is gold.”advertisementSidorova and Morris were the standouts from the start, clearing every height up to 4.90 meters on the first attempt. Morris missed her three shots at 4.95, leaving Sidorova one last jump for gold. Her personal best was 4.91 and she hadn’t come close in training even 4.85 had been a challenge but she sprinted down the runway to soar over the bar.”I thought that yes, it’s the chance you have to take,” she said. No female vaulter has cleared 4.95 at a world championships since Russian Yelena Isinbayeva in 2005. Still the world record holder, Isinbayeva is a national hero in Russia and an influential critic of doping investigations into Russian sports.Sidorova was previously considered a solid performer whose biggest win was the 2014 European title. Being the new Russian pole vault queen hasn’t sunk in.”I’m not sure that I understand I’m the best after Isinbayeva in Russia,” she said. “I’m confused when I need to talk about it.”After raising the bar, Sidorova wants to keep her feet on the ground. Next stop Moscow and a long-awaited dessert.”Back home I’ve got a can of whipped cream. I bought it before I left, and thought I’ll come back and eat it all.”Also Read | World Athletics Championships: India finish 7th in 4x400m mixed relay final, USA win goldAlso Read | Joao Vieira becomes oldest person to win a medal in World Championship historyFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Seven public-sector entities have won over $24 million in prizes in the Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica (PCJ)/Government of Jamaica (GOJ) Energy Champion Competition. Maggoty High has the honour of being the first school to win division four, which is a new category designated for educational institutions.Each category winner received a $5-million Solar Photovoltaic System, which will be installed at their locations.The Ministry of Transport and Mining, National Library of Jamaica (NLJ) and Priory Primary School, which were runners-up in divisions two, three and four respectively, were rewarded with energy-efficient equipment valued at $1.5 million.The Energy Champion Competition includes an individual component, which saw nine persons claiming first-, second- and third-place prizes valued at $60,000, $40,000 and $30,000 respectively, between October 2018 and January 2019.This was achieved after sharing their energy efficiency and conservation tips on social media.Additionally, 10 public-sector employees won prizes in sponsored radio shows bringing the total number of individual Energy Champions up to 19 winners across the island.Science, Energy and Technology Minister, Hon. Fayval Williams, in her remarks at the awards ceremony, said that the EECP has assisted in reducing national oil consumption by 3,500 barrels, helping to save approximately US$2.2 million since 2013.She noted that the energy competition, since its launch in 2017, “has been met with great enthusiasm and support at all levels, from decision-makers who have to pay the energy bills, to the workers and supervisors who implement conservation measures during their day-to-day operations”.Minister Williams encouraged all ministries, departments and agencies to “get on board by assessing your energy use and implement strategies to cut your energy expenses”.Project Manager, EECP, Jody Grizzle, who gave an overview of the programme, said the objective is to realise energy savings by reducing electricity consumption in government-owned buildings.“We carry out interventions, which will improve energy efficiency, and we target largely the building envelope, cool roof solutions, solar control film and energy efficient air-conditioning systems,” she informed.Ms. Grizzle further noted that the training of staff is an important aspect of the initiative.“It is not enough to just install new equipment. Capital investments like these go hand-in-hand with increasing the knowledge of people who use them daily, so they understand how it functions, how to maximise operations and maintain performance,” she added.The EECP aims to promote cost-saving measures in the public sector through the design and implementation of energy efficiency and energy conservation interventions and equipment.Over 300 employees from more than 48 entities have benefited from training, with the aim of encouraging efficient and sustainable energy use through conservation measures and behaviour change. The annual competition, which is part of the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Programme (EECP) being implemented by the PCJ, aims to increase awareness and build capacity in implementing energy-efficiency measures at government entities.

TORONTO — Telecommunications giant Rogers will begin rolling out a new loyalty program on Monday in a bid to keep customers from switching to rival carriers.[np_storybar title=”BCE may be most at risk if Verizon comes to Canada” link=”https://business.financialpost.com/2013/07/02/bce-may-be-most-at-risk-if-verizon-comes-to-canada/”%5DBCE Inc. may count on wireless for a much smaller portion of its earnings than peers such as Rogers Communications Inc. and Telus Corp., but Bell’s wireless business is nonetheless crucial to its dividend and free cash flow growth. Read more. [/np_storybar]“Something that most major carriers worldwide do not do well at is recognizing and rewarding customers for tenure,” said executive vice-president and chief marketing officer John Boynton.Wireless carriers also get criticized for treating new customers better than existing ones, said Boynton.“Those are two specific things we want to address with customers with the new loyalty program,” he said.Wireless, cable, internet and home phone clients will be able to earn points that can be redeemed for rewards such as U.S. roaming packages, premium TV content and upgraded internet packages.Roger Communications will launch the national rewards program in stages, starting in Red Deer, Alta., on Monday. It’s expected to be fully rolled out by the end of this year.“We hope to get some early-learning feedback from customers before we have the rest of the country rolled out,” said Boynton.“It will allow us to figure out what to put in the next two, three releases.”Customer service has been a longtime concern for Rogers. Its wireless operations have been under particular pressure in recent quarters as Bell and Telus have grabbed a larger share of postpaid phone subscribers.During the company’s annual meeting in April, outgoing chief executive Nadir Mohamed said the company needs to improve its customer service “significantly,” for instance by resolving the top reasons for customer calls.Mohamed’s calls for improved customer service echoed comments he made when he took over the top job from company founder Ted Rogers in 2009.Boynton said the loyalty program has been three years in the making.“We had our feet out in the street worldwide for a loyalty program in early 2011,” he said.“Since then we’ve been busy selecting and installing it into our systems and doing lots of customer research.”Canadian Press
Nevsun Resources has entered into an agreement for the sale of all of its interests in properties in Mali, including the Tabakoto kine, the Segala property and exploration properties. Avion Resources has agreed to pay Nevsun C$20 million plus a 1% net smelter return royalty on future production, subject to normal regulatory approvals and financing by Avion. Closing is scheduled for on or before May 23, 2008. Avion has agreed to a $1 million break fee if the transaction does not close on schedule.The Tabakoto mine has been running at a loss since its start of operations in mid 2006. Nevsun reviewed the operation and as a result wrote off its investment, effective December 31, 2006. It put the mine on care and maintenance. The problems, Nevsun said, were a result of the lower than expected grade of ore available for mining, the continued poor performance of the mining contractor, and the lack of reimbursement by the Government of Mali of approximately $7 million in fuel tax.The additional C$20 million will go towards Nevsun’s share of the development costs for its Bisha project in Eritrea. Bisha has a life of +10 years as an open pit mine modelled at 2 Mt/y of ore production. In years 1 and 2, it is expected to average 447,000 oz/y gold, then in years 3 to 5 it will average 173 Mlb/y of copper plus precious metal credits, and in years 6 to 10 it will average 218 Mlb/y zinc and 39 Mlb/y copper plus precious metal credits.

Pep Guardiola insisted that he has to be grateful to every single member of Manchester City as they all had a huge impact on their team winning the Premier League title this season.The Spaniard admitted that he wouldn’t be able to achieve such a thing without the support of the whole club and as the players returned to the training after their free days for celebrations, he expressed it.The former Barcelona coach spoke about this title-winning season as he said, according to France 24:Report: City are stunned by Norwich George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Manchester City was stunned by Norwich City in todays Premier League clash.Much has been made in recent days of the potential impact of Aymeric…“In the end, what we have done is to be better than 19 other teams, nothing else. But what you have done – all the people here, you deserve all my respect.”“Always it will remain in my heart until the last day of my life, I am pretty sure of that. What I felt this season is something amazing.”“You can lose one game, two games – but to be nine months, 10 months, every single day… that is the most outstanding thing an athlete can show in their lives and the people who surround them.”
River Plate president Rodolfo D’Onofrio, spoke to Cadena Ser about a meeting the club had with Real Madrid officials about Exequiel Palacios’ future.With the Boca vs River Copa Libertadores final right around the corner, there are many of the main protagonists making an impact in world football and Exequiel Palacios is not the exception with his link to Real Madrid.This season has been a real eye-opener for many of the biggest clubs in Europe, they have seen how the 19-year old has made his claim as one of the biggest young talents from his country and everybody wants a piece of him for the next transfer window.But just like any of the most coveted players usually do, it’s logical that a club like Real Madrid wouldn’t take long to acknowledge the player and came after him right before this historic final.Up until this Friday, there had only been rumors about Los Blancos’ interest in Palacios but River Plate’s own president has confirmed the rumors and also the information coming from the Spanish press about this almost imminent new transfer.Florentino Perez keeps growing his skills to sign young talents who will most certainly become world class stars, as Palacios is only the latest from a long list of players who are on Real Madrid’s radar.📻Lo confirma en este momento @RodolfoDonofrio en @ElLarguero: “Emilio Butragueño sí que llamó a nuestro director, Enzo Francescoli, para interesarse por Exequiel Palacios (…) Una vez termine todo esto nos sentaremos a hablar” https://t.co/JD2CAggxTj— El Larguero (@ellarguero) November 9, 2018River Plate’s president Rodolfo D’Onofrio spoke to Cadena Ser’s El Larguero radio show, the first intention was to promote the Copa Libertadores final against Boca on the European market (as if that was necessary).But the other agenda from the media outlet was to talk about the constant links between Real Madrid and Exequiel Palacios, the youngster who scored the winning penalty kick against Gremio during River’s latest Copa Libertadores semifinal match.That goal the youngster scored from the spot, was good enough to change history and give us the chance to enjoy the Argentine club in their second final of the last three seasons. But for the club’s president, playing this game against Boca Juniors is the ultimate double-edged sword.But the most expected response from D’Onofrio, was obviously the whole Palacios situation. The club’s president revealed a secret meeting between officials from both clubs.“About 10 days ago, Butragueño spoke to our sporting director, Enzo Francescoli. They both agree to talk after the final, it’s very possible that Palacios plays in Europe next year,” said D’Onofrio about Palacios’ future.Mourinho: “Lionel Messi made me a better coach” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho believes the experience of going up against Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi at Real Madrid made him a greater coach.📻 Nos ponemos en pie para saludar al presidente del River Plate, @RodolfoDonofrio en @ellarguero https://t.co/JD2CAggxTj pic.twitter.com/hkGRGB1T5q— El Larguero (@ellarguero) November 9, 2018But the president wanted to deviate from this conversation and only talk about the historic final between Boca Juniors and River Plate.“Up until last year, there was a rule in which clubs from the same country needed to eliminate each other in the semifinals, that’s the reason something like this never happened in the past,” he continued.“I am very relaxed because club presidents need to stay calm in order to let the rest of the fans understand that this is only a football game and we need to live it that way. River Plate and Boca Juniors have played very few finals in their history.”“We did play a final last March (Supercup) and everybody was talking mentioning how difficult the comeback would be for the losing side.”“Boca lost and they are playing the Copa Libertadores final this weekend. Both clubs have amazing players and I don’t think we need to overthink this or create so much drama around it.”“We also do not agree with Conmebol’s decision to ban our manager from the stadium because that type of prohibition, usually only applies to a delinquent and Gallardo is no such thing,” he concluded.Vamos todos juntos banda ⚪🔴⚪!! pic.twitter.com/6TOSAWFJhf— Exequiel Palacios (@exepalacios_) October 31, 2018What do you think about the possibility of Palacios playing for Real Madrid next season?

Nagarkurnool: The Hundi counting of the famous Uma Maheshwaram temple in Rangpur village in Achampet Mandal was carried out on Thursday. The priests of the temple informed that this year they had a record collection of Rs 4.68 lakh in just five months period. Usually, the Uma Maheswaram temple receives a large number of devotees only during Shiva Ratri. During this festival, a week-long Jatara would be held inside the Nallamala forest area. However, after that, the flow of devotees and tourists decreases.

Share Tags: Canada Wednesday, August 23, 2017 Visits to Canada’s national parks and historic sites jump this year By: Mia RabsonSource: The Canadian Press OTTAWA — The federal government will consider what to do with admission fees for national parks beyond Canada’s 150th birthday after this year’s free parks program has proven to be exceptionally popular.After Ottawa decided to eliminate fees for national parks and historic sites for all of 2017, Parks Canada says preliminary estimates show more than 14 million visits between January 1 and July 31.That’s an increase of 1.5 million over the same period in 2016, or a 12 per cent jump.The numbers are for 39 national parks and 82 national historic sites which report attendance numbers. Some parks and sites are currently closed, are brand new or do not report visitor statistics.While parks attendance has been rising over recent years, the spike this year was double what was seen during the same period the year before and business owners near some of the parks say the free admission is behind it.“When I talk to a lot of the customers they’re down here for the Canada 150 celebrations,” said Mike Makhlouf, co-owner of Freddy’s restaurant near Point Pelee National Park in southwestern Ontario.Point Pelee, billed as the southernmost point of Canada and a bird watcher’s paradise, saw the biggest absolute increase in visitors this year, with 130,000 more people passing through the gates. To the end of July, visitors to the park were up 66 per cent and in July alone visitor numbers were up 90 per cent.More news: Virgin Voyages de-activates Quebec accounts at FirstMates agent portalMakhlouf said the people started coming in May and haven’t stopped.“This is the first time I’ve heard of the park closing the gates because there were too many people inside,” he said. “I know it’s happened more than once (this year.)Environment Minister Catherine McKenna said she is thrilled with the visitor numbers so far, and believes when the year is over the government needs to take a look at what the impact was on the local communities and what should be done with the admission fees going forward.“I think it’s a good time to take a step back and actually look at the broader economic case for national parks and historic sites but certainly no decision has been made to extend it,” she told The Canadian Press in an interview.The government already planned to eliminate admission fees for anyone under 18 after this year.The 2016 federal budget set aside $65.4 million to replace lost revenues from the gate fees in 2017. Another $4.7 million was invested to meet anticipated increases in visitors and $5.7 million to produce, order and distribute the free Discovery Pass given to people so they can get into the parks for free.Joel Reardon, Parks Canada’s Canada 150 spokesman, said 3.7 million discovery passes were ordered online thus far. About 150,000 people have downloaded the Parks Canada app.More news: Apply now for AQSC’s agent cruise ratesReardon said the parks and historic sites are seeing “record visitation” but it has been manageable with the additional planning and staff hired to keep things on track.Kathleen Yetman, owner of Birdie’s Perch restaurant and the Point Pelee Trading Post said business this year has just been “fantastic.”“It’s surpassed my expectations,” said Yetman, who has owned the seasonal restaurant since 2012.Both Yetman and Makhlouf would be thrilled if Ottawa extended the free passes beyond 2017.So would Heath MacDonald, P.E.I.’s minister of economic development and tourism. Prince Edward Island National Park saw attendance jump by 37 per cent, or more than 101,000 people so far this year and the park saw an increase of 54 per cent in July alone.“We’re seeing a tremendous amount of traffic inside the national park,” said MacDonald. “I would love to see the federal government extend this at least for another year.”The increase in visitors has not been uniform. The top 10 busiest national parks account for 75 per cent of visitors to all parks and were responsible for 66 per cent of the increase in traffic. Seven parks, most of them in remote locations in the North, saw a drop in visitors. << Previous PostNext Post >>
