England’s captain wants team to focus on Test Cricket

first_imgEngland’s Captain in Red Ball Cricket wants the new coach to give Test cricket a greater priority and also wants an infusion of new energy.Trevor Bayliss who was the coach of England cricket team since 2015 has stepped down after a successful stint. Under Bayliss, England Team becomes no.1 team in ODIs and also won the dramatic ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 but they had mixed success in Test cricket. They won the historic Test series in Sri Lanka and also won 5 match test series against India at home but they struggled in Australia losing 4-0 against the Steve Smith-led side in 2017. They also struggled in West Indies, New Zealand and failed to regain the Ashes at home after 18 years which was drawn 2-2. Since England had focused a lot on White Ball Cricket which led to World Cup Victory, they have struggled to form a Stabilized Test Team.Joe Root who was part of the World Cup-winning side, now hopes that his team could turn its focus back on Test Cricket considering the Start the World Test Championship which began from 1 August 2019.“One thing you always want from a new coach is a bit of energy and a slightly different way of going about things. Trevor did a brilliant job managing English cricket, but I’m sure whoever comes in will want to put their stamp on it quite early.“Personally, I’m looking forward to Test cricket being slightly more of a priority than it has been for the past few years,” he told PA.In a list of candidates of a new coach, Gary Kirsten is the front runner to replace Bayliss as the New coach of England. Kirsten is the former South African Batsman. He is a successful coach who led India to the World Cup Victory in 2011. He also coached South Africa, BBL team Hobart Hurricanes and IPL team Royal Challengers Bangalore.Joe Root isn’t involved in the selection process but has praised Gary Kirsten for his exquisite coaching skills. He said,“You look at the list and I’m thrilled with the names involved,” he said. “There’s a lot of noise around certain individuals, but the group have all done special things and could bring good things to English cricket.“Gary has obviously had a fantastic time in international cricket, he’s done some wonderful things with India and South Africa – domestically done some good stuff, recently in Twenty 20 cricket. He’s obviously a very accomplished, all-round coach.”England is expected to reveal the new coach soon.last_img read more

Army’s Golden Knight who survived harrowing fall wants to jump again, soldier says in exclusive interview

first_imgUS Army(MIAMI) — They’re the Army’s elite parachute team, jumping thousands of feet in perfect daredevil formations into air shows, festivals and sporting events all across the country.Largely made up of former combat soldiers, the Golden Knights are considered the “best of the best.”But on Feb. 12, during a low altitude night jump at Homestead Air Reserve Base in Florida, the unthinkable happened.The parachutes of two soldiers became tangled and collapsed during what is referred to as “canopy relative work.” Despite activating a reserve parachute, the Knights started spinning approximately 2,500 feet into the ground.When they crash landed, their teammates immediately started administering life-saving care. The most critically injured of the soldiers was Sergeant First Class Richard “Dick” Young, who was barely conscious.“I was on the telephone, calling 911. And then at that point, it was just a matter of making sure that our team was responding as appropriately as we could with what we had with us on the ground,” said Lt. Col. Ned Marsh, commander of the Golden Knights.“I spent some time with Dick, talking to him, trying to motivate him, giving him a little bit of direction, and trying to give him some motivation to sort of fight through the situation,” he told ABC News Chief Global Affairs Correspondent Martha Raddatz during a recent exclusive interview at the Knight’s headquarters at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.Young was medevaced to Ryder Trauma Center and in the operating room in about 20 minutes, Marsh said.Young had broken his right leg, two toes, all but one rib and his jaw. He also shattered his pelvis, knocked out two teeth and fractured his cervical spine and skull.He ruptured his diaphragm, too, and had lacerations to every internal organ.Young’s wife of nine years, Trina, remembers getting the predawn call and immediately knowing something was wrong.“The morning of, I woke up to my phone ringing at 5:00,” she told ABC News. “And his medic was calling me. As soon as I saw her number I knew instantly, there’s no other reason she would call me.”Trina Young flew from Fort Bragg with their two young children, a son and daughter, to the trauma center in time to see her husband come out of emergency surgery for the first time.“It was rough. It was the final reality check that this was real life,” she recalled.“This wasn’t a dream,” she added. “This was him.”Doctors was placed in a medically induced coma, warning his wife that he was unlikely to survive.Trina Young wanted the kids to say goodbye to their father before sending them to live with their grandparents while she stayed by her husband’s side.“I wanted them to be able to see one last time,” she said. “They said they missed him and they loved him.“And they just told him that they couldn’t wait to see him again. And they left,” she added. “Kids are resilient, a lot more resilient than I think any of us give him credit for.”Despite the circumstances, Trina Young said she had faith that Young would pull through.“It was just pretty much knowing him and the kind of person he is and how dedicated he is, how much he loves his children and his family,” she said. “I couldn’t really imagine him not making it.”After two months in the coma, Young finally woke up.He doesn’t remember anything from the accident or the entire day preceding it. And when he woke up, he remembers not being able to move or talk.“I didn’t know where I was,” he said. “So that was a very scary feeling at first.”It would be the beginning of the long road to recovery, including hours of physical therapy.The Golden Knights average one injury for every 1,000 jumps, and the team averages about 18,000 jumps per year, according to statistics provided to ABC News by the Army. But the rate for serious accidents like Young’s is even rarer: just five accidents over the last 10 years.“There’s an inherent danger to our business,” Marsh said.“We’re asked to do a hard mission,” he added. “Our purpose is to go out and inspire Americans to support trust and join the US Army. If there isn’t a little bit of courageous thrill associated with that, it doesn’t work.“Can you eliminate all the risk? No. We plan for it, we prepare for it, make sure we’re ready for the worst case scenario. We try to make sure that it never happens,” he added. “But when it does, we learn from our mistakes, and we move on, and we continue to execute the mission because that’s what our nation asks us to do.”But Young’s experience won’t keep him out of the skies.“I can’t wait to jump out of a plane,” he told ABC News.“Once you get that first catch or free fall, you just want to get back to it. So I will definitely be back in the air again,” he said.“It might not be as a Golden Knight because unfortunately, now medically, I don’t meet the requirements to stay in the Army. So [the Army is] going to get me better, and then I’m going to take a retirement and go hang out and spend time with my kids and my wife,” Young continued.Asked about how she feels about that jump, Trina Young laughed.“I mean, what I think most of the time doesn’t really factor in too much,” she said, adding, “But he’s experienced.”“The Army trained him. He pretty much learned to jump in the military,” she continued. “So they trained him pretty well. So I have confidence that he’ll be alright.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

SoftBank’s woes go far beyond WeWork, council bill targets commercial tenant harassment: Daily digest

first_imgEvery day, The Real Deal rounds up New York’s biggest real estate news, from breaking news and scoops to announcements and deals. We update this page throughout the day, starting at 9 a.m. Please send any tips or deals to [email protected] page was last updated at 3:25 p.m. Video produced by Sabrina He Scammers sent out numerous phishing emails using Howard Lorber’s address. A Douglas Elliman source confirmed to Inman that multiple recipients had received scam emails that appeared to be from the brokerage’s chairman. It is unclear if Lorber’s account was compromised, or if a scammer simply “spoofed” his email address. [Inman] IKEA is opening its first Queens location next summer. The 115,000-square-foot store, the Swedish furniture giant’s third in New York, will be located at the Rego Center shopping mall in Rego Park. [Patch] Compass CEO Robert Reffkin and Maëlle GavetCompass’ COO is out. Maëlle Gavet is leaving,the latest in a string of recent exits at the SoftBank-backed residential brokerage. In an email to agents Tuesday, CEO Robert Reffkin described the departure as a “mutual decision.” [TRD] WeWork’s Adam Neumann (Credit: Getty Images, iStock)And Adam Neumann is stepping down as WeWork’s CEO. The startup’s founder is moving into a non-executive chairman position, after facing pressure from investors to resign. Artie Minson, the company’s CFO, and Sebastian Gunningham, its vice chairman, will replace Neumann as co-CEOs; the company said it will not search for an external CEO. [TRD] Despite low mortgage rates, home-price gains are still slowing down. The deceleration continued for a 16th straight month in July, with home prices in 20 cities tracked by the S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller index rising just 2 percent, the least since August 2012. Nationwide home prices rose somewhat faster, growing 3.2 percent. [Bloomberg] Co-working rivals are cashing in on WeWork’s struggles. Flex-space company Knotel, co-working startup Industrious and meeting-space company Convene have all raised funds over the past month amid WeWork’s IPO woes, in part by highlighting the differences between themselves and the SoftBank-backed giant. In particular, firms often point out that their partnerships with landlords will better protect them in a downturn. [WSJ] WeWork CEO Adam Neumann and Softbank CEO Masayoshi Son (Credit: Getty Images)The WeWork IPO is just the latest in SoftBank’s long list of problems. SoftBank-backed companies including Uber, its Chinese rival Didi Chuxing, Slack and cancer-test company Guardant Health are all likely to be marked down in the firm’s third-quarter reporting. The odd structure of Softbank’s Vision Fund — in which 40 percent of the capital comes in the form of debt-like preferred stock — poses greater risks in a downturn, and Masayoshi Son’s firm recently took out an unusual three-year loan to pay back its investors, using its stakes in Uber and Guardant as collateral. [WSJ] A City Council bill seeks to stop harassment of commercial tenants. The bill, which has been approved for a general vote on Wednesday, would require landlords in recently-rezoned neighborhoods to certify that they had not harassed tenants for at least 60 months in order to get construction permits. Penalties may include a $1,000 fine and two-year construction ban. The Real Estate Board of New York supports the bill, which exempts certain types of critical construction work. [WSJ] De Blasio returns with a long list of unfinished city business. With his long-shot presidential bid over, the mayor’s priorities for New York City include: overhauling NYCHA, including tackling lead paint and mold and generating new revenue; reforming the city’s convoluted property tax system; fulfilling a commitment to stop using hotels as homeless shelters; rescuing the Brooklyn-Queens Connector project; fixing a decayed segment of the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway; and building new jails to replace Rikers Island. [The City] Some developers embrace short-term rentals. From a condo project in Nashville marketed for short-term rental use, to hotel-licensed, Airbnb-branded developments in Miami and Austin, developers are taking a new approach to increasing profits and driving sales. They are also taking steps to address safety and regulatory issues which have historically led landlords to shy away from transient uses. [WSJ] A Queens landlord faces a $17,000 fine for threatening a tenant with ICE. Landlord Diana Lysius, facing foreclosure on her rental property after falling behind on mortgage payments, began threatening Guyanese-immigrant Holly Ondaan after the tenant stopped paying rent. “Have my money or I’m calling ICES [sic] that day period,” one message read. Lysius was found to have violated the city’s human rights law. [NYT] The Manhattan district attorney responds to Trump’s federal lawsuit. President Trump sued in federal court last week to block a subpoena for his tax returns, but District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr.’s office says Trump and his lawyers have invented a “new presidential ‘tax return’ privilege,” belied by the fact that “every president since Jimmy Carter has voluntarily released his tax returns before or upon taking office.” [NYT] New NAR data shows more brokers abandoning the franchise model. The latest numbers from the National Association of Realtors show that the percentage of brokerages affiliated with a franchise company has fallen to 11 percent from 13 percent two years ago. Keller Williams is the nation’s largest franchise with 153,904 agents, while Berkshire Hathaway saw the most gains over the past two years. [Inman] Airbnb investor General Atlantic is expanding at Park Avenue Plaza. The private equity firm inked a lease to expand by roughly 30,000 square feet at Fisher Brothers’ 55 East 52nd Street, bringing its total space in the 45-story tower to more than 93,500 square feet through 2039. Asking rent for the space was in the low $100s per square foot. [TRD] Judith and Rudy Giuliani with 315 South Lake Dr in Palm Beach, Florida and 45 East 66th Street in New York (Credit: Getty Images, Trulia, Highrises)These are the luxury properties at stake in Rudy Giuliani’s messy third divorce. From an Upper East Side co-op and two Palm Beach condos to a home in the Hamptons, the former New York mayor and current Trump lawyer’s divorce from Judith Giuliani is a complicated process — partially because he apparently ignored friends’ advice to get a prenup. [TRD] Twelve New Jersey-based firms got subsidies by threatening to move to the same New York complex. The firms, including Jaguar Land Rover and travel company FC USA, used the threats to secure New Jersey tax credits totaling more than $100 million. But it seems that none of the companies seriously considered moving. [NYT] Office leasing in New York fell dramatically in August. With just 1.56 million square feet in deals inked, August’s transaction volume was down 68.2 percent from July and down 30.8 percent year-over-year. [NYP] U.S. mortgage holders’ home equity has hit an all-time high. With a collective gain of nearly $428 billion in the second quarter, the average mortgage holder saw a $4,900 home-equity gain in just one year. Despite all-time low mortgage rates, few homeowners are tapping into that equity than in the past — perhaps a holdover from the previous housing crash.

O’Donnell: Incident under review, but no reaction likely

first_imgBusch walked with purpose toward Logano after exiting his car on pit road, then lunged at his rival after reaching him. The two were pulled apart, but Busch wound up at the bottom of a pile in a scuffle with officials and crews. A NASCAR official escorted Busch, bloodied by a nick on his forehead, from the scene. “It’s certainly under review,” O’Donnell said. “We have to take everything, make sure we look at all the video, but just from our in assessment last night, as far as on-track I don’t think we saw anything that was intentional by any means. We have to have discussions with both drivers. I think our intention would be not to react unless we see something we haven’t seen yet.” RELATED: What Busch, Logano said | How other drivers reacted RELATED: Another angle of the Busch-Logano conflictMORE: Photos of the incident Steve O’Donnell, NASCAR Executive Vice President and Chief Racing Development Officer, said Monday that competition officials were continuing to review Sunday’s post-race conflict between Kyle Busch and Joey Logano at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, but the sanctioning body is inclined “not to react” pending further video review. “It’s an emotional sport,” O’Donnell added, “and I think it shows exactly how much every position on the track means.” O’Donnell said NASCAR’s competition department was reviewing video footage of the incident, which stemmed from on-track contact between the two drivers’ cars on the last lap of Sunday’s Kobalt 400. Logano’s No. 22 Ford slid into Busch’s No. 18 Toyota in between Turns 3 and 4. The bump sent Busch spinning to a 22nd-place finish, while Logano drove away to place fourth.RELATED: See what led to the pit road incident O’Donnell’s remarks came Monday morning in a guest appearance on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio’s “Morning Drive” program. “What our position has been is that we want to leave it in the drivers’ hands,” O’Donnell said. “What we don’t want to see — and the drivers have asked for this, which is very fair — is a crew member initially approaching a driver or initiating some type of altercation with a driver. The early review of this is, this was two drivers with crew members kind of stepping back. Once something happens, a crew is taught, which I think is right, that if someone comes up in your pit box and attacks your guy, you have the right to try and break that up or bring it to a stop. I think that was the initial review that we saw.”</p> Asked about the possibility on punishment for crew members on Logano’s No. 22 team, who jumped into the fray after Busch threw a swing, O’Donnell reinforced that NASCAR prefers to leave things in the hands of its drivers. NASCAR officials had no immediate comment about the incident Sunday. O’Donnell also said that officials from the sanctioning body would bring Busch and Logano together for further discussions before getting back on track at Phoenix Raceway.last_img read more

first_imgNotre Dame’s student body has always been a spirited group, but this year, the Leprechaun Legion is making changes that they hope will improve the overall atmosphere of all sporting events. “Our goal is to try to find different ways to get students to come to games,” Matthew Cunningham, president of Leprechaun Legion, said.  “We want to keep them entertained and engaged and loud and to create kind of a home field advantage.” To encourage maximum participation from the student body, the Legion has recently decided to expand itself so that every sport will have its own loud, boisterous student section. “The Legion last year focused on basketball,” vice president, Kristen Stoutenburgh, said. “It’s historically been men’s basketball so we expanded to encompass not just the student section at basketball games but also the student section at all sporting events. Every student on campus is part of the Leprechaun Legion.” But for those who want to be more involved in the Legion than simply attending various athletic contests, new changes in the organization’s leadership structure will provide a way. The Leprechaun Legion board is comprised of an executive council, board leaders, marketing members, and the board of student representatives. Essentially, the board will work to find areas in which the student section can improve, Cunningham said. “We have weekly meetings and we talk Notre Dame athletics about how to make them the best that they can possibly be,” Stoutenburgh said. “ There are also individual sports committees, which take charge of the student section for their particular sport.  Any student can join a sports committee. “I think we have a great student section,” Cunningham said.  “I think part of the reason people come to Notre Dame is the great athletic programs.  But we can do better.” He noted that last year’s decision to add music to the football games as an example. “It added a great dimension to the stadium atmosphere,” Cunningham said. Other things like the Leprechaun Legion shirts, which were distributed at several sporting events early in the year, serve to bring the student body together as a united force, Stoutenburgh said. “They’re not just there to watch.  They’re there to be a fan and support their team,” she said. The bigger, more excited student sections will unite fans, but they will also lend support to the athletes. “We want to be the best, not only for our own enjoyment but also to support the players and the coaches,” Stoutenburgh said.  “Athletes know the Legion stands behind them.” The energy the student section generates can play a crucial role in Notre Dame games. “Coaches will say ‘Yeah, the crowd was great today, it really gave us a boost when we needed it,’” Cunningham said. “That’s what we’re trying to do here – give the students and coaches that extra energy.” In the end, the Leprechaun Legion serves two purposes.  It is a voice for the student body within the athletic department and it brings fans and athletes together. “There’s not that big separation between us,” Stoutenburgh said.  “We’re all one team.” For more information on the Leprechaun Legion, email [email protected] with your name and sport of interest.,Notre Dame’s student body has always been a spirited group, but this year, the Leprechaun Legion is making changes that they hope will improve the overall atmosphere of all sporting events. “Our goal is to try to find different ways to get students to come to games,” Matthew Cunningham, president of Leprechaun Legion, said.  “We want to keep them entertained and engaged and loud and to create kind of a home field advantage.” To encourage maximum participation from the student body, the Legion has recently decided to expand itself so that every sport will have its own loud, boisterous student section. “The Legion last year focused on basketball,” vice president, Kristen Stoutenburgh, said. “It’s historically been men’s basketball so we expanded to encompass not just the student section at basketball games but also the student section at all sporting events.
