Kashmir Press Club to hold polls after three decades


first_imgThe journalistic fraternity in Kashmir, where 19 scribes lost their lives to unknown gunmensince 1990, will get to elect its first-ever body for the Kashmir Press Club (KPC) on July 15. As many as 252 working journalists and editors will vote for four posts of office-bearers and a seven-member executive committee. Thirty one candidates are in the fray for the July 15 polls. All the candidates wooed voters through a fierce poster, social media and video campaigns in the past one week, promising social security, exigency funds, free legal support etc.“Holding election for professional organisations is always a welcome step. One hopefully looks forward to its promised positive outcome for the profession as well as the larger public good,” said senior journalist Mohammad Syed Malik. He recalled that regular organisational elections were held prior to 1990 to choose the office-bearers of working journalists’ State unit affiliated to the Indian Federation of Working Journalists (IFWJ). “The onset of turmoil (in 1990) disrupted all. The rest is history,” said Mr. Malik.Kashmir may be a rare place in the country where setting up a press club remained a no-go area. Successive governments identified land and buildings but never handed them over to the journalists. “In the late 1990s, then Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah instructed his Chief Secretary to hand over the keys of a particular building to the media fraternity to start a press club. Later, the Chief Secretary disclosed that the keys of the building had gone missing,” said another senior journalist on condition of anonymity.The setting up of the press club, which was handed over by the previous government to the journalists in 2017, has come at a time when working journalists and editors are under tremendous pressure from many sides in Kashmir.The Kashmir Editors Guild (KEG), a body of editors of local dailies, at a recent meeting said the club “should become a symbol of unity.”Ishfaq Tantry, contesting for general secretary, said, “This election will be a first move towards starting a process of welfare for journalists and their working conditions. It should also become a hub to upscale skills of journalists.”last_img read more

Oklahoma State’s Top Recruiting Targets at Defensive End


first_imgIf you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber. You can go there to comment and holler about these articles, specifically in these threads. You can register for a free account right here and will need one to comment.If you’re wondering why we decided to do this, we wrote about that here. Thank you and cheers! Oklahoma State lost a commitment on the edge of their future defensive line this week with Hendrickson defensive end prospect Nelson Mbanasor decommitting from OSU, and likely flipping to Arkansas.With Mbanasor likely moving on from OSU, the coaching staff has been working behind the scenes on a contingency plan, with the expectation that Mbasnasor’s decommitment was a “when” not “if” type scenario.Oklahoma State still holds one pledge at defensive end for the 2017 class in Oologah standout Brock Martin, who appears solid with his pledge. But OSU would like to grab at least one more prospect to add to the mix for next season, and they’ve got two they’re steady after on the recruiting trail.David Anenih – 6-3, 220Anenih is a standout defensive end from Mansfield Timberview, who picked up an offer from the Pokes in mid June. The coaching staff has been recruiting him steadily since, and despite being uncommitted, Oklahoma State currently leads in his recruitment ahead of Houston, Kansas State, and Texas Tech. He’s expected to take his official visits following the football season, but Anenih is one to keep an eye on. He seems very high on OSU and with a spot opening with Mbanasor’s decision, it could be a more inviting place for him.Michael Clemons – 6-6, 240Clemons is the more polished  prospect OSU is chasing, and he’s also a junior college recruit from Cisco College with a dozen scholarship offers. He’s a versatile edge rusher like OSU hasn’t had in recent years. Emmanuel Ogbah, one of the best to do it for OSU, was an elite pass rusher but he was a more ‘hand in the dirt’ get to the QB defensive end. Clemons can do a little of everything, lining up in the down position and as an outside linebacker. OSU is recruiting against Arkansas, K-State, Tennessee, Ole Miss, Mizzou and others for Clemons, who likely factors into an immediate impact prospect next season wherever he chooses.last_img read more


At Least All These Tommy John Surgeries Arent Rotator Cuff Surgeries


No pitcher’s elbow seems safe anymore. Earlier in spring training, Yu Darvish, the perennial Cy Young contender and ace of the Texas Rangers staff, had Tommy John surgery. A week later, promising Mets pitcher Zach Wheeler was under the knife. Those guys are part of a proud lineage of phenoms whose elbows couldn’t withstand the crazy forces of pitching a baseball every five days. In the past five years, 299 major and minor league pitchers have had Tommy John surgery.1According to data collected by sabermetrician Jon Roegele. The epidemic — or whatever you want to call it — isn’t over yet.But beneath the scary headlines and the relentless drumbeat of crisis, there’s a silver lining to this rash of pitcher injuries: Having a bum elbow sure beats having a bum shoulder. Despite all the Tommy John surgeries, we’re living in a golden era of pitcher health.It’s hard not to be anxious about a crisis when you look at data about just how many ulnar collateral ligaments are being repaired through Tommy John surgery. The number of surgeries in the past 10 years is 115 percent higher than it was the 10 years prior.That’s a huge spike, yes, but the intriguing thing is what’s happened as those elbows have flared up: Shoulders haven’t. Using data from Baseball Prospectus’s injury archive (maintained by Corey Dawkins), we can chart the escalating number of elbow surgeries over the past 35 years against the number of shoulder surgeries2This graph looks at all levels of baseball (major and minor leagues) from 1981 onward.: Right around 1998, the two paths diverge, and in recent years, shoulder surgeries are down.3I believe credit for noticing this trend goes to sabermetrician Jeff Zimmerman. After a peak in 2009, when more than 40 operations were performed, shoulder surgeries seem to be fading toward extinction, with only 12 in 2014. Some have attributed the decrease in shoulder injuries to improved shoulder exercises. This explanation is consistent with the fact that shoulder injuries have disappeared for position players, as well.The decreasing trend in shoulder problems matters because shoulder surgeries are more debilitating than the now-routine Tommy John. Whereas about 80 percent of major league pitchers in my data set4The recovery rate is in agreement with other estimates from experts such as Dr. Glenn Fleisig. returned from UCL reconstruction to pitch in the majors, only 67 percent came back from shoulder surgeries. (From here on out, I’m examining only the pitchers who were major leaguers at the time of their surgery.) Whether because of recency bias or some other factor, we tend to forget once-great throwers like Johan Santana, Brandon Webb, and Kerry Wood, all of whose careers were cut short because of shoulder ailments. Wood, in particular, is an instructive example. He came back from Tommy John early in his career only to be done in by a rotator cuff surgery several years later.There are, of course, pitchers who never make it back from Tommy John, and if you are a Rangers fan, or simply a connoisseur of great pitching (as I am), even a 20 percent risk of Darvish never returning seems drastically high. But not all pitchers are the same. Using logistic regression, I examined how the risk of failing to return after UCL reconstruction varies by the characteristics of the specific pitcher in question.Starting pitchers are more likely to make it back than relievers, for example. I found that 90 percent of starters returned from Tommy John surgery, versus 74 percent of relievers. In addition, the better a pitcher is before his stint on the DL (measured by his strikeouts and walks per nine innings), the more likely he is to recover.How healthy that pitcher is before his surgery also matters. The longer the injury history, the less likely he is to successfully recuperate. All parts of a pitcher’s arm are connected in a kinetic chain. Because the pitching motion is so stressful on an arm, a problem at one end of the chain can weaken another end of it. Take Joel Zumaya, the fire-breathing reliever for the 2006 Detroit Tigers who never made it back from Tommy John. Zumaya had a long injury history, including problems in his hand, wrist, elbow and shoulder. No one can say with certainty which part of his arm was the one that ruined his chances of being a major league pitcher. Darvish, on the other hand, is a relatively healthy starting pitcher with excellent strikeout and walk numbers. He should be counted as among the most likely to make it back to MLB.There’s a pessimism that follows any pitcher to the DL — that even if he does return, he will never attain his former abilities again. There’s some merit to that: While many pitchers return to their former levels of performance, some seem to lose a measure of their ability. Francisco Liriano never again matched the 10.7 strikeouts per nine innings he put up in his rookie season, which was followed by elbow surgery. But for every Liriano, there’s an Adam Wainwright, the Cardinals ace. He averaged 8.3 K/9 in the year before his surgery and posted an identical 8.3 K/9 the year after.When I looked more generally at the historical record of pitchers who had undergone Tommy John, I found that there was an evident decline in their performance. However, it was not nearly as bad as the one that followed shoulder surgeries. Shoulder problems reduce strikeouts and increase walks, both to greater degrees than similarly severe problems to a pitcher’s elbow:Tommy John recipients barely saw their strikeouts drop at all. On average, strikeouts declined by 0.06 K/9 following Tommy John surgery. Contrast that with the sufferers of shoulder surgery, who saw a substantial (and much greater) average drop in K/9 of 0.37. That’s a 5 percent decrease for those pitchers.There was a 0.18 increase in walks per nine innings (BB/9) for the Tommy John recipients, but a greater 0.33 increase in BB/9 for the shoulder surgery recipients.There’s one other noticeable effect of these surgeries: Pitchers pitch less when they come back. Both types of pitcher injuries seem to lead to a decrease in innings pitched in the three years after the surgery relative to the years before. But, again, shoulder surgeries appear to be worse than elbow surgeries.Pitchers who underwent UCL reconstruction saw their number of innings pitched decline by an average of about 53 innings in the three years following their return — no small margin. In contrast, pitchers who underwent shoulder surgery experienced a much greater decrease, notching more than 134 fewer innings.All this means that there are tons of players getting Tommy John surgery, but that’s not the worst fate for a pitcher these days. Darvish is very likely to return, likely to strike out nearly as many guys per game as he once did, but likely to do it in fewer innings. Rangers fans, you can stop worrying about Darvish’s elbow. Just keep praying his shoulder holds up. read more


McInnes condemns racist remarks made at Sinclair


first_imgAberdeen manager Derek McInnes has condemned racial slur made at Scott Sinclair during the Scottish League Cup final.McInnes has slammed the Aberdeen fan who racially abused the Celtic player, but he insists it was a situation regarding an individual rather than a widespread problem for the Pittodrie club.Sinclair revealed his disappointments regarding the situation on social media after seeing a video of the racial slur aimed at him as he had a penalty saved during his club’s 1-0 win at Hampden.Aberdeen defender Shay Logan, who was himself a victim of racial slurs that saw Celtic winger Aleksandar Tonev banned for seven games in 2014, also called the Sinclair incident an utter disgrace.“If using the skin colour of somebody is what you have to do to try to offend a fellow human being you are losing in life,” said Logan, according to the Scotsman.Derek McInnesDerek McInnes insists there isn’t a Premiership title race yet Henry Ikenna Ugwu – January 12, 2019 Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes believes there is no title race despite his side being one of the favourites to lift the Ladbrokes Premiership trophy…“BLACK WHITE ASIAN we are all the same.”McInnes also shares the views of his players as Aberdeen the fan will be punished duly once identifiedHe said: “Any racial abuse, in this day and age, is shocking. It’s embarrassing for the individual. It’s not a club issue for me. It’s the individual.”“That type of comment was maybe normal practice in the Sixties and Seventies, and it was appalling then and shocking then, and even more so now. It’s shocking that Scott Sinclair and any other player is still subjected to that.”last_img read more


Kira Bindrim Leaves Newsweek for Quartzs Talent Lab


first_img Li announced he was moving on from Re/code in February. In this case, the media shuffle comes full circle, as Li’s replacement at Re/code, Dan Frommer, joined the site from Quartz, where he was technology editor. “Over the past few months we have been strategically restructuring the company in order to adapt to the changes in the market and to insure IBT Media has a strong path to continued growth,” wrote CEO Etienne Uzac and CCO Johnathan Davis in a staff memo addressing the layoffs. “In these ever shifting and challenging times within our industry, we are responsible for sustaining and reinventing our company as best we can.” “As Kira Bindrim heads to Quartz, we are thrilled to welcome Ken into the Newsweek family and eager to have his sharp news sense and digital savvy guiding our operations,” said Newsweek editor-in-chief, Jim Impoco, in a statement. “Ken’s background includes a great mix of writing, editing and strong newsroom leadership that are critical for the managing editor role.” Newsweek wasted little time naming Bindrim’s replacement. Li had been with Re/code since its inception as a relaunch of the now-defunct AllThingsD.com in early 2014 and served in prior editorial roles at Thompson Reuters, Financial Times, and The Industry Standard, beginning his career as a tech reporter for the New York Daily News in 1996. Moviegoers can thank Li for allegedly inspiring “The Fast and the Furious” film franchise with an article in the May, 1998 issue of Vibe about street racing in New York City. Kira Bindrim Newsweek’s managing editor, Kira Bindrim, revealed today that she is leaving the magazine to join Atlantic Media as editor of Quartz’s newly formed Talent Lab, a global network aimed at discovering and developing new reporters. It’s been an interesting few months at IBT Media, which debuted redesigned websites for both Newsweek and International Business Times in December. Rumors of financial issues, missed payments, and disgruntled employees soon followed, culminating in the dismissal of at least 15 staffers last month.center_img As part of the Ken Li announcement, Newsweek revealed a series of other staff changes. Kevin Dolak was promoted from executive editor, digital to national editor, overseeing 2016 election coverage. Social media director, Margarita Noriega, will step into Dolak’s previous role, while Iva Dixit will take over as social media editor. It’s true! After a 100 time at NW, I’m heading to @qz as editor of the nascent Talent Lab. SO excited to welcome @kenli729 as ME of @Newsweek! — Kira Bindrim (@KiraBind) April 25, 2016 Ken Li, founding editor-in-chief of Re/code, will take over as managing editor of Newsweek, overseeing day-to-day operations for the website and weekly magazine, according to an announcement this morning. Bindrim had served as Newsweek’s managing editor since 2013, around the time the brand was acquired by IBT Media, and helped oversee its return to print media the following year. Prior to Newsweek, Bindrim held roles at Thompson Reuters and Crain’s New York.last_img read more


California bill would require companies to let you know if your passport


first_img Security Internet Hacking Privacy Share your voice Biometric data has also been stolen in data breaches. In the breach on the US Office of Personnel Management in 2015, which government officials said they attributed to Chinese espionage, hackers stole 5.6 million sets of fingerprints belonging to federal employees. That number climbed from OPM’s initial announcement that hackers stole 1.1 million fingerprints. Post a comment Marriott breach: What to do when hackers steal your passport numbercenter_img Getty Images If your passport number gets stolen by hackers, California Attorney General Anthony Becerra wants you to hear about it. He and state assembly member Marc Levine unveiled a bill Thursday that would require companies to inform customers when passport numbers and biometric data get caught up in a data breach.”Knowledge is power, and all Californians deserve the power to take action if their passport numbers or biometric data have been accessed without authorization,” Becerra said in a press release Thursday.The bill comes in response to the breach of a Marriott-owned reservation system, made public in December, which compromised the information of about 383 million guests at the company’s Starwood hotel chain. Hackers stole more than five million unencrypted passport numbers, as well as more than 20 million encrypted passport numbers. Marriott did notify customers if their passport numbers were stolen, Becerra noted, but it wasn’t required by law.Passport numbers are valuable to potential identity thieves because they provide one more point of data about potential victims. However, criminals would have to use the numbers in expensive and sophisticated forged passports to travel internationally with the information. Passports numbers can be changed by reporting a passport lost or stolen; the replacement passport will have a new number. So they stole your passport number… Tags 0last_img read more
