first_imgStill known for the infamous ‘Don’t blush Baby’ comment to a sports presenter during a Big Bash interview earlier this year, Chris Gayle maintains he did no wrong and everyone targeted him because he’s a West Indian. (I am a complicated person: Chris Gayle to India Today) Speaking exclusively to India Today on the launch of his book ‘Six Machine’, in which he lambasts former cricketers for bashing him for his behavior, Gayle says, “The criticism was unfair and it was largely from the media.” (Chris Gayle asks female journalist: Have you ever had a threesome?) When reminded that actually many cricketers too found what he did in cheap taste, he goes on to say that’s only because they don’t like the Caribbean swag. “That was only from former cricketers who have now become commentators. They are made to take sides now. If they had taken my side they would have lost their jobs. Some of these cricketers were worse than me.” (Chris Gayle back in India, dances up a storm with Virat Kohli) Despite the nearly universal criticism he received for asking the reporter out on live TV and making personal comments about her, Chris maintains the backlash was uncalled for. “Most people don’t like West Indies players because we are talented and we dominate on the field. People gravitate to us. Fans like us. We have this flair and swagger on the field. We can do many things. We are so multi-talented in all aspects of sports. When we excel, they try to pull us down.” (Why Chris Gayle doesn’t deserve to play in Indian Premier League anymore)advertisementWhile some in the past too have made the point that a cricketer for example from Australia or England could have got away with what Gayle did, there is no denying his behaviour was in bad taste and made everyone comfortable. It opened up quite a Pandora’s box on sexism towards female reporters and even athletes in sports world wide. Gayle became a poster-boy of such behaviour with many of his past skeletons too tumbling out of the closet. If he calls the Big bash comment harmless, certainly asking a reporter if she had had a threesome was not. But Chris seems oddly alright with what he did or what he stands for. “‘Don’t blush baby’, was a sweet comment. It was a compliment. The person I said it too was not offended. An ex-cricketer said ban Gayle. That cricketer (Ian Chappell) had punched someone and was even locked up for that. Flintoff called me a chop but he took sexual enhancers during a match. It’s all out there. You just check their history. They have done much worse than me. And they tried to bring me down just for a couple of lines.”last_img read more

first_imgWayne Rooney has called Louis van Gaal the best coach he has ever worked with, pipping Sir Alex Ferguson to the number one spot in his list. Ferguson won an enviable haul of honours during his remarkable 26-year tenure at Manchester United, with Rooney enjoying notable success himself under the Scot.However, when it comes to coaching, Rooney expressed his admiration for Van Gaal, despite the Dutchman only winning one trophy during his time as United manager. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare “Van Gaal is by far the best coach I have worked with – one hundred percent,” Rooney told De Telegraaf.“His tactical skills, his way of preparing and his attention to the finest of details, I found amazing. I admired that in him. I had never looked at stuff like that before.”It was no secret that Rooney and Ferguson had a number of differences during the striker’s 13-year career at the club with the former England captain handing in a transfer request back in 2010.After being appointed in 2014, Van Gaal had limited success at United in bringing only one trophy to the club, but Rooney praised his style of management and regrets how things ended. “Van Gaal knows that the way he works is tough for players. I made him aware of that at the time and we talked about this very well together. “I regret how it all ended, yet I know one thing for sure – I have learnt a lot from him and I am definitely going to use those lessons for when I am a manager.”The former England captain is currently playing out his last years at Major League Soccer side D.C. United but is keen to emulate the success of former team-mates Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard on the managerial front. “Physically, I feel good and I am still ambitious. But once my career is over, I am going to consider all the ­options,” he continued.“It is great to see that Frank and Steve have been given these chances at big clubs. That gives me hope too because I do think about these things. But for the time being, I am enjoying my life as footballer. I want to win more trophies.”Rooney has been working on his coaching badges out in the States, preparing for a step into management in the future.  Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more

first_imgCALGARY — An Alberta man wants answers as to why he wasn’t allowed to wear a T-shirt in support of Canadian oil and gas during a visit to the Senate on Parliament Hill.Conservative Sen. David Tkachuk from Saskatchewan says he has received a copy of a letter written by William Lacey and addressed to other senators, Alberta Premier Jason Kenney and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.Lacey says he was visiting the Senate on Monday, but was told by a security guard he would have to remove his T-shirt because it could be offensive.Lacey was wearing a black shirt with white text that included a heart and Maple Leaf to read “I love Canadian oil and gas.”The shirt comes from a pro-oil-and-gas organization called Canada Action.Lacey, who is associated with Canada Action and is chief financial officer of Steelhead Petroleum Ltd. in Calgary, says he has worked in the sector for more than 20 years and wore the shirt in Ottawa because he’s proud of the energy industry.He says he chose to turn the shirt inside out to be part of a tour because his other option was to leave.“Just as a western Canadian, I just find that outrageous,” Denise Batters, a Conservative senator from Saskatchewan, said during a committee hearing on Thursday.“As a Canadian, I find it outrageous,” Tkachuk added.Lacey said he also wore the shirt inside the House of Commons and had no issues from security there.The Parliament of Canada’s website says that “participating in any form of demonstration inside the buildings is prohibited, including wearing items or clothing with visible political messages.”Senators have asked that the episode be looked into.— By Stephanie Taylor in ReginaThe Canadian Presslast_img read more

first_imgBENGHAZI – Three Libyan tribesman have been killed in fighting that grew out of disputes between army units under conflicting orders over who controls key resources in the country’s east, officials said Monday.Another five people were wounded in the fighting between Toubou and Zuwayya tribesmen on Sunday night in Ajdabiya, 160 kilometres (100 miles) south of Benghazi.The clashes were sparked by fighting on Friday between one unit made up of Zuwayya, under the orders of the general staff, and a Toubou unit that takes its orders directly from the defence ministry, an official explained. At stake was control over oil wells and an agricultural water reservoir in Al-Sarir, 600 kilometres south of Benghazi, he added.Five soldiers were killed in the fighting on Friday, and clashes broke out between Zuwayya and Toubou in Ajdabiya the following day after the soldiers’ burial that spilled over into Sunday.The Zuwayya, who are Arab, and the Toubou, who are black, have a long history of conflict.Following the overthrow of long-time dictator Moamer Kadhafi in 2011, tribal unrest broke out in parts of Libya, particularly in the south and west, prompted by a settling of grudges or competition for control of smuggling across the country’s borders.Since Kadhafi’s ouster, Libya’s authorities have struggled to impose their authority and stem rising lawlessness.last_img read more

first_imgLa pollution de l’air en Ile-de-France dépasse encore régulièrement les seuilsSelon le bilan d’Airparif publié mercredi, les niveaux annuels autorisés de dioxyde d’azote (NO2) et de particules en suspension ont été encore une fois régulièrement dépassés en 2012 en Île-de-France et à Paris en particulier.Alors que les alertes se multiplient au sujet de la pollution de l’air en France, c’est un document édifiant qu’a dévoilé mercredi Airparif. Selon ce rapport annuel, les niveaux annuels autorisés de dioxyde d’azote (NO2) et de particules en suspension ont de nouveau été régulièrement dépassés en 2012 en Île-de-France. Paris et les axes routiers sont, bien entendu, les zones les plus touchées par cette pollution. Ainsi, Airparif juge que “la qualité de l’air reste insatisfaisante en Île-de-France”, notant “une certaine stabilité depuis plusieurs années”. Comme le rappelle le rapport, cette pollution de l’air a des origines multiples : trafic routier, industrie, agriculture et chauffage mais certaines sont plus marquées que d’autres. Sur 11 millions de Franciliens, 3 millions sont concernés par des taux moyens de dioxyde d’azote excessifs liés au trafic des véhicules diesel qui “émettent trois fois plus de dioxyde d’azote qu’un véhicule essence catalysé et quatre fois plus de particules fines”. “Nous attendons avec impatience les normes Euro 6 [applicables aux constructeurs automobiles européens] qui devraient durcir les émissions des moteurs à partir de 2014″, a ainsi déclaré Karine Léger, d’Airparif.Pour ce qui est des particules en suspension dans l’air, 2,4 millions de personnes sont exposées à des particules PM10 (inférieure à 10 micromètres) et à des particules fines (PM2,5) au-delà des seuils autorisés de 35 jours par an. Ces dépassements ont surtout été constatés près des gros axes routiers et plus particulièrement à Saint-Denis sur l’autoroute A1 (192 jours de dépassements), sur le périphérique à la porte d’Auteuil (135 jours) et sur la RN2 à Pantin (106).”Baisser de 30 à 40%” le trafic automobile des particuliers À lire aussiLa Méditerranée est officiellement la mer la plus polluée par le plastiqueSelon Airparif, “le dioxyde d’azote reste un des enjeux principaux en matière de pollution atmosphérique en Île-de-France”. En effet, comme le rappelle le Dr Patrice Halimi de l’Association santé environnement France (Asef), “les oxydes d’azote sont un irritant des voies respiratoires”, et comme les microparticules, “ils vont aussi dans les alvéoles du poumon, passent dans le sang et vont boucher des petits vaisseaux, ce qui peut provoquer infarctus, accidents vasculaires cérébraux, naissances prématurées”… Pour ce spécialiste, il faut ainsi “baisser de 30 à 40% le trafic des véhicules particuliers au profit des transports en commun”.Par ailleurs, quoiqu’Airparif s’intéresse à l’Île-de-France, ce n’est pas la seule région concernée par la pollution, une quinzaine d’agglomérations françaises dépassant également régulièrement les normes européennes annuelles.

I’ve used it many times and found it a great alternative to traditional car-rental services — in part because you get to choose exactly the vehicle you want (not just, say, “midsize”) and in part because you can often do pickup and dropoff right outside baggage claim.Between now and Sept. 1, the first 300 people to check out can get $30 off any Turo rental with promo code LDW30.

first_imgIt’s all about the soil: Typically, the soil you plan to grow your vegetable or herb garden in should be high in organic matter, which can be easily obtained using the appropriate fertilizer at various supermarkets, and outdoor and garden retailers.Starting your own compost bin can be a quick and easy way to keep nourishing your garden as well as recycle. Kitchen scraps such as egg shells, coffee grounds, maize cobs and tea leaves can go a long way in keeping your garden naturally healthy and at a low cost. You can buy the ready-made bin container, or build one yourself.Location, location, location: Your garden should be in a location facing direct sunlight every day and as far away from trees as possible to prevent your crops from competing for water with the trees.Trowels and other tools: some essential garden tools you’ll need to invest in include a small spade, shovel, hoe, rake and garden fork. You can add more tools according to your preference. Vegetables that grow best in spring include kale spinach, beetroot and artichoke, while chives, red onions and maize thrive best in summer. Knowing what seasons are most favourable for certain vegetables is crucial to their growth.Similarly, herbs also have a seasonal preference. Herbs are however a lot more versatile than vegetables, and can grow in a sunny spot in pots near the kitchen window. Basil, rosemary, thyme and oregano are some of the most popular herbs that don’t need much fussing over to plant and sow.If you’re planning on adding fruit to the mix, make sure that you have enough garden space, as fruit require more space than vegetables usually do. Vegetables that also need larger gardens include cucumber and squash, among others.Building healthy and organic soil is one step to growing a healthy garden of crops, but keeping your veggies pest free can be a challenge. Apple cider vinegar, vegetable oil and even crushing garlic into a liquid mix can come in handy and keep your garden organic and pest free from top soil to the roots.
