Embarrassed and hurt that I let my children down as their father: Shane Warne

first_imgShane Warne’s mesmerising bowling prowess coupled with his personal life (which has long been fodder for the tabloid press) has made him one of the world’s most illustrious sportsmen.Along with the reputation of being the greatest leg-spinner in the history of the game, Warne also dominated headlines throughout his cricketing career thanks to his relationships with various women.It is therefore, hard to sum up the Warne’s journey in a few words which is why he has launched his new autobiography titled, ‘No Spin’, which contains the true stories behind the headlines and challenges some of the enduring myths and untruths that surround the legendary cricketer.All that worship of the baggy green made me want to puke: Shane WarneUncompromising and compelling, it is destined to rank alongside some of the greatest sports autobiographies ever, the publisher has promised said.Ahead of its launch, Warne has been giving interviews at various media outlets around the world, talking about the various topics in his life including that of his children.Another big day doing radio & book signings. Been blown away by all the wonderful feedback so far – thankyou! I will continue to check Amazon for all your thoughts, so keep the comments coming ! Warne (@ShaneWarne) October 10, 2018Warne recently met former England captain Michael Vaughan opened up about his life off the field and controversies surrounding his divorce and relationship with British actor Elizabeth Hurley which was particularly distressing to his children.advertisementAlso Read – When Shane Shane Warne rightly predicted India-England 2011 World Cup result”I regret hurting my children. I’m embarrassed and hurt that I let them down as their father and as a husband to Simone [Callahan] I wasn’t very good. The whole book is fact. I do [love sex]. It’s true. If I didn’t love sex that much I probably wouldn’t have got myself in half the trouble I have,” Warne told Vaughan on BBC Radio 5 live.”I’ve enjoyed being a father, I love being a father and I think I’m a good father. The kids are my number one priority I’ve shown them that. They’ve said some wonderful things in the book and I didn’t sit with them when they did that.Also Read – Australia need Steve Smith and David Warner to return desperately: Shane Warne”They were asked, ‘tell me what you think about your dad?’ And they were brutally honest. They don’t pull any punches. I’ve had to live with that. Live with that guilt that I let my children down and it’s led in a way to a great relationship now because we talk about so much stuff.”Any time we have an issue we have a thing where we say, ‘assume the position’ and we all sit and say, ‘right, it’s my turn to speak’ and we all listen. They ask me any questions they like and I have to answer them truthfully,” Warne, the second highest wicket-taker in Test cricket, said.”The real me is preferring to be on the couch with my kids, in tracksuit pants. The other stuff is a bit of fun but I much prefer the quiet life. But it’s about balance. Too much couch time and chilling and you crave a bit of social stuff and too much social stuff and you crave being at home,” he went on to add.Among all of his 708 Test wickets, one holds a very special in his heart. The Ball of the Century, which Warne bowled to dismissed Mike Gatting in 1993, is the most famous delivery any bowler has ever bowled in the history of the game. And Warne did it with his first delivery in an Ashes series.Warne though, calls it a fluke that changed his life forever. “It was the perfect leg break,” he said.”To do it first ball in an Ashes series, I look back and say, ‘yes’ it was a fluke but I think it was meant to be. It changed my life. I was 23 and I didn’t know how to cope with the attention off the field. I’d walk out of the hotel with the whole team and there’d be 20 photographers taking pictures of me.”I remember going to Bristol and every kid had zinc cream on trying to bowl leg breaks. I was blown away. We’d go for a beer after play and there’d be 15 photographers taking my picture of me stuffing my face with chips.”At that time I didn’t understand why they were doing it. I’m proud of how I handled it. Yes I made a few mistakes but there’s no school you go to which says if this happens this is what you do,” Warne said.advertisementWarne played his first Test match in 1992, and took over 1,000 international wickets (in Tests and One-Day Internationals).A useful lower-order batsman, Warne also scored over 3000 Test runs. He played domestic cricket for his home state of Victoria, and English domestic cricket for Hampshire. He also captained the Rajasthan Royals to victory in the IPL in 2008. He officially retired from all formats in 2013.last_img read more

NEB rejects call to expand scope of Trans Mountain pipeline expansion review

first_imgCALGARY — The National Energy Board is rejecting a call made by an environmental group last month to greatly expand the scope of its reconsideration of the Trans Mountain pipeline filed a motion to the federal regulator on Jan. 21 demanding it add consideration of the project’s upstream and downstream greenhouse gas emissions to its review of project-related marine shipping issues.It asked the board to apply the same standard to the project as it did with the Energy East pipeline before it submits its final report to the federal government, expected this Friday.But the federal regulator says in a ruling on its website that its reconsideration is designed only to address issues arising out of the Federal Court of Appeal ruling in August that set aside its previous approval.It says’s proposal missed its deadlines and repeated requests made by several other parties that had already been denied.In a news release, says the NEB decision breaks an election pledge made in 2015 by the Liberals to give all energy projects a full climate review.“The National Energy Board has denied this motion because the Trudeau government specifically excluded climate change impacts from a full review of this pipeline,” said international program director Tzeporah Berman.

Complex underground bunker job completed for Sasol Mining in South Africa

first_imgMurray & Roberts Cementation has completed another milestone project for leading South African coal miner, Sasol Mining. It took Murray & Roberts Cementation one year to excavate, support and equip a 1,500 t underground bunker and box front with its associated infrastructure at Impumelelo mine. This included construction of a 1.8 m wide decline conveyor that has a running speed of 4.6 m/sec and a coal handling rate of 2,950 t/h.Steering the team was Murray & Roberts Cementation’s Technical Director, Mike Wells, who has more than 23 years’ experience with the company in constructing underground infrastructure. Wells says this was a benchmark project for Murray & Roberts Cementation and certainly one of the many highlights in his long career building essential underground mine infrastructure.“This is one of the biggest box fronts I have ever helped to construct. It is a 14.7 m diameter excavation and over 27 m high between the number 4 seam and the number 2 seam. In total some 5,800 m3 was excavated and supported with rockbolts, mesh, shotcrete and long anchors as part of the project,” he says.The box front took up to six months to equip, with the ring beam and approach slabs comprising 200 m3 of reinforced concrete. The side walls in the chamber are 10 m high and 16 m long with a width of 1 m; containing 390 m3 of concrete and 60 tons of reinforcing bar. The eight spliced girder beams are 1.5 m high and 11.4 m long. The soffit floor comprises 200 m3 of concrete.Reforming the conical section took 6,800 sandbags , 451 m3 of mass concrete and 126 m3 of 70 MPa Andesite shotcreteMurray & Roberts Cementation deployed a host of specialised skills to successfully complete this project. These included the ability to undertake complex rigging projects and its extensive experience planning concurrent activities. An example of working in multiple areas simultaneously would be the construction of the conical section, installing the top of bunker steel, comprising four jib headframes and head pulleys, and constructing the bottom of the bunker box front with chutes and two levels of flooring.However, it was also the company’s ability to tackle the complicated electrical and instrumentation requirements as an extra to the contract at the same time that gave the mine the necessary assistance to meet the tight scheduling .“This ability helped us meet all the key milestones on the bunker excavation and box front equipping which were critical for the mine to meet its production build-up requirements. These included the extension of the conveyor belt and the ability to feed coal through the bunker,” Wells says.The project was successfully completed without a single lost time injury, which is testament to Murray & Roberts Cementation’s stringent health and safety protocols on all its construction sites. A crew of 80 people was deployed in two shifts at the top and bottom of the structure, as well as the conical section of the bunker.Wells attributes the sound safety and productivity levels achieved underground at Impumelelo mine to thorough upfront planning involving key members of the team, who had a unique understanding of the environment considering their four year long prior involvement in the shaft sinking component of the contract.“The devil was definitely in the detail of the planning, while the plan had to be reviewed and adapted constantly in its execution. Progress meetings were held weekly and processes adapted and controlled wherever necessary to keep the project on track,” Wells says.This level of planning was essential to ensure the timely delivery of concrete and reinforcing, as well as essential lead items such as fabricated steel and electrical componentry and instrumentation to the site.Concrete was transferred through a 200 m long, 200 mm diameter cased aggregate hole on surface and pumped to where it was needed.All the galvanised steel was laid out on surface and pre-assembled, before being disassembled and re-assembled in the correct sequence underground. During the course of the project, more than 100 tons of galvanised steel was loaded on site and pulled down the decline shaft with a load haul dumper.The massive girders were lifted and placed using a system comprising four pneumatic chain blocks. The system also allowed the girders to be moved in a longitudinal direction and then swung 90 degrees and placed on top of the slab walls.Another achievement on this site was Murray & Roberts Cementation’s close control over wastage. For example, tight control was exercised over the supply of bolts and therefore there was no shortage of these issued items.Wells is proud of this project and he certainly has reason to be, considering the acclaim it has received from Sasol Mining.last_img read more

ToeJam and Earl return to save the people of Earth

first_imgToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove is coming to consoles and PC in 2017, although you can add it to your Steam wishlist right now. You can, and you should. Welcome back to Earth. <> ToeJam and Earl are returning on a day next year that’s already clearly destined to be a global holiday. It’s been far too long since we’ve seen the alien duo, 13 years in fact, since the deeply flawed ToeJam & Earl III: Mission to Earth hit Xbox.But forget that installment, the developers at Humanature Studios and Adult Swim Games clearly have. ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove is a semi-remake of the first classic Genesis game that combines it with the side-scrolling second installment as well, giving the game new graphics, a ton of new features, and that same funky feel that we’ve all been missing.Listen, forget Sonic. ToeJam & Earl was one of the best games for Genesis owners to use to taunt Super Nintendo fans. The alien hip-hop duo was simply so funky, so fresh, and the game was so unique and challenging. This game did procedurally generated levels before there was even a term for it.Plus, it offered co-op play before that was a thing either, as you can play as either of the main characters and explore this strange world full of terrifying earthlings. You’d collect strange gifts, exploring the world as you liked thanks to a dynamic splitscreen mode that allowed you to roam where you pleased without being tied to your friend.The new game will feature nine playable characters including Latisha, Lewanda, GeekJam, Peabo, and Earl’s mom, Flo. Fans of the original will be pleased to note that secret locations such as the infamous Level 0 will return, as well as 13 remakes of the classic tracks and 13 new songs. The game also supports four-player co-op, both local and online.last_img read more

Former Aston Villa player recalls relentlessly negative youth coach MacDonald

Farrelly says the time he spent at Villa was a “relentlessly negative” regime under MacDonald.“It was a culture of verbal and physical bullying, but there were no checks and balances; he operated with impunity. It was like a dark shadow came over,” Farrelly told the Guardian.Jose Mourinho is sold on Lampard succeeding at Chelsea Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Jose Mourinho wanted to give his two cents on Frank Lampard’s odds as the new Chelsea FC manager, he thinks he will succeed.There really…“He would say: ‘You think you’re a f***ing player? You’re not a f***ing player. You’ve got f***ing no chance.’ He would be calling players ‘c**ts’ all the time; crazy stuff when you think about the role of responsibility he operated in.”“In training, it wasn’t unusual for people to end up squaring up to him, games would have to be stopped. It became normal. People were lucky not to have their legs broken. Every day you’d go into work, put your boots on, and think: ‘Here it comes again’. It took a huge toll.”last_img read more

SpiderMan Launch Trailer Features Classic Villains

first_img We’re only a few weeks away from the release of Spider-Man on PS4. For obvious reasons, this is easily one of the most anticipated titles of the year. With the game’s release on the horizon, Sony Interactive Entertainment and Insomniac Games have today released a launch trailer to get everyone even more excited than they already were.This latest video features two characters who should be familiar to Spider-Man fans. The first one is Wilson Fisk a.k.a The Kingpin. In a brief shot, we see the larger-than-life villain being taken away by the cops. The trailer also features Spider-Man facing off against the Rhino. This version of the classic villain sports a cybernetic suit which looks quite menacing. Don’t get me wrong, I love the original Rhino costume, but it is admittedly silly. Like other trailers, this one also features Miles Morales. We’ve yet to see the young hero sport his own Spider-Man outfit, but I suppose we’ll just have to wait for that reveal.There are several reasons why this Spider-Man game is receiving such hype. The first one is clear: it’s Spider-Man. I think it’s safe to say Spidey is one of the most recognizable characters on Earth. Most people know of and have a fondness for the wall-crawler. The fact it is a Spider-Man game from Insomniac is the other reason. The studio is known for producing high-quality titles featuring excellent graphics, controls, and voice work. Spider-Man is also more popular than ever given his introduction into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If there was a perfect time for a new Spider-Man game, this is it.AdChoices广告As I long-time fan of Spider-Man and Insomniac Games, I am extremely excited to play this title. The short demo I played at E3 convinced me this will indeed be among 2018’s best experiences. I cannot wait to play the full game.Spider-Man releases exclusively for the PlayStation 4 on September 7.While you wait for the game to drop get acquainted with the best moments all Spider-Man fans should know. Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Meet Alicia Avilés the perseverant immigrant leader of La Carpios cultural growth

first_imgRelated posts:Rebuilding the community of La Carpio through cultural education Changing paradigms in La Carpio through volunteering La Carpio’s cultural rebellion The Black side of the story: Afro-Costa Rican MC Huba Watson Part Two in a four-part series. Read Part One here.Is it possible for a single organization to transform one of Costa Rica’s toughest neighborhoods? La Carpio, the shantytown located in La Uruca, San José, is synonymous in the minds of many Costa Ricans with poverty and violent crime. In 2011, however, Alicia Avilés and Maris Stella Fernández launched a quest to change this when they founded the Integrated System of Art Education for Social Inclusion (SIFAIS), an NGO seeking to promote cultural growth in the neighborhood. In this four-part series, The Tico Times sets out to show how this non-traditional cultural education model is trying to beat the odds and help this vulnerable community strive for a better future.On the website for the Integrated System of Art Education for Social Inclusion (SIFAIS), Alicia Avilés is listed as the community director, but also as the “inspiradora” – the inspiration. She who inspires.The woman whose improbable dream of a symphony orchestra from the La Carpio shantytown grew into a renowned non-governmental organization was born in Managua, Nicaragua, where she studied at the religious school Lumen Christi and Loyola High School. She went on to work as an elementary school teacher in both rural and urban areas of Nicaragua for 12 years.Twenty years ago, struggling to make ends meet on her teacher’s salary, she came to Costa Rica in search of a better life for her family and herself. She went on to become a community leader in La Carpio; thanks to an unexpected partnership with the woman who is now the president of SIFAIS, Maris Stella Fernández, Avilés is now helping to lead a team of staff members and volunteers who are changing the neighborhood in a big way through cultural education.On a beautiful, sunny morning at the Cueva de Luz – the SIFAIS headquarters – in La Carpio, The Tico Times sat down and spoke with Avilés, 51, about her extraordinary attitude toward improving resilient community of La Carpio. Excerpts follow.How did you end up in Costa Rica?Frankly, the decisions were based on the fact that we had to feed our family in order to survive. A teacher’s wage in Nicaragua is very low and I had to sustain my five children. Besides that, I had to buy teaching materials for my work and the bus passes. Receiving a monthly wage of $100 as a teacher made it difficult to be able to sustain my family. While I worked, my-mother-in-law was the one who took care of my children. I came to Costa Rica in order to provide my kids with food and clothing, and I was searching for a better perspective of life for myself.I never thought I would stay for 20 years. I just thought of coming here, trying this new lifestyle and then returning to Nicaragua. Here I’ve only worked as a maid because I never intended to teach again. As a maid I didn’t have to work 12 continuous hours and take the work back home with me. [Being a teacher is like] working 24 straight hours.Which has been your role in La Carpio and with SIFAIS?I was named the Security President in the community of La Carpio. It’s a role I’ve had for three years now. We’ve been working away like ants, but we’ve made progress. Maybe it can’t be seen right now, but as time passes by it’ll become evident. It’s about teaching lessons to the families of the community. The Mixed Institute for Social Aid (IMAS), and a few gringos who came here to help, covered families’ basic needs. [A lot of] drugs used to be sold here and we’ve been trying to eliminate those things that damage the community.Four years ago, I also became president of this sector of the community in which we’re speaking right now. The government hasn’t solved these problems that have existed for quite a long time, because the community hasn’t been organized.When [SIFAIS President] Maris Stella Fernández first came to La Carpio, I cried. I was dealing with several difficulties with the community…. I had been named president of social pastoral outreach, and began solving other people’s legal problems by speaking to the community about how to come to an agreement through dialogue. Oftentimes people stabbed each other with knives. Ambulances were called constantly and they did not come into the area because of the danger. Now, the ambulance comes here very rarely because there are no injured or dead people. That’s how I began my work as a community leader. I also work with various ministries and private enterprises that are willing to help us.Citizens have to take responsibility for their actions. The fact that they live in an illegal slum doesn’t mean that they can do whatever they like. You’ve got to respect the norms and laws that our country has and give our best as the citizens that we are. I’ve been imparting those [messages in educational] talks with people who want to improve the country, and that’s how we’ve been advancing.How has the implementation of SIFAIS workshops and classes improved the community?You notice the improvement in people’s attitudes… Eradicating violence might be seen on a long-term basis, but the change is beginning to be noticed. It’s a seed that grows through the hard work we have done as a team.People have been repairing their houses by painting them and keeping them neat. The entire family must help with this, not just the mother. The way in which people dress has changed. Now you don’t see people walking half-naked on the streets. Women are dressing differently, and due to this they have regained their dignity.SIFAIS has reassured everyone about their capabilities and this has been done through teachers. The teachers are those impulsive and strong machines that help us; they’re our pillars.What role does kindness play in the project?People have stopped asking for [material] things. In 2015 I went to Costa de Pájaros, Puntarenas to deliver 95 toys to the children there. I went with various people from my community who usually beg for these things for themselves. By November and December [of the next year], normally they’d be asking for toys themselves, but instead they came asking when we were going again to deliver more toys [to kids in Costa de Pájaros]. It’s part of the kindness that has been growing.SIFAIS… is helping our vulnerable community emerge from the anonymity in which the government had kept us. It has also demonstrated that we should all contribute something to our community. For La Carpio’s people, SIFAIS is a dream come true. People have been given the opportunity to get an education for free.How do you think that the core values of SIFAIS (trust, constancy, madness and tenderness) are important elements of the project?As you see, there are no rules here telling you to come at a certain hour. The children come here to do creative things in their own way. You give them that freedom [to express themselves]. It’s part of that craziness or madness: not limiting their eagerness and excitement. Of course, they’re quite mischievous, but it’s part of their growth process.Afterwards I listen to what they’ve got to say in order to know what they want or desire. This helps them to express themselves and speak at home with their families. Part of the education here is to allow them to direct themselves wherever they want, whether they’re evangelical, Catholic or from some other religion.In our next story in this series, meet the volunteers of SIFAIS and find out how this “two-way street” is changing lives both in and out of La Carpio.

politics He also called on the Nigerian police to remain neutral in the current political situation in the country Governor Amaechi spoke while addressing members of Nigerian legion and the representatives of service chiefs at the 2014 Armed Forces and Remembrance Day celebration which featured launching of emblem at the Alfred Diette Spiff Civic Centre Port Harcourt Amaechi said “The greatest source of unity in a country is the military and you have suffered enough to fight for the unity of this country I will say to you the Nigerian Military don’t be involved in Nigerian politics Nigeria is too complicated for the military to be involved in Nigerian politics Nigeria as we are here we have so many tribes I tell people I’m not Ijaw I’m Ikwerre There are people who are from Ijaw there are Hausas there are Yorubas there are Isokos there are Fulanis We are too many that if the military gets involved in Nigerian politics the consequences will be too much Currently we thank all of you for remaining neutral and God will bless you for remaining neutral “In the same manner we will enjoin Nigerian police to remain neutral because the consequences of taking sides will be too much 2015 is a watershed for the country All of us seated here must contribute to peace in Nigeria” He acknowledged the military’s contributions to unity and nation building and urged them not to allow such contributions collapse in the current political debate “I will say to you today that all of you both serving and retired in one way or the other contributed to the unity of Nigeria and that you cannot afford to allow that unity to go I have a very faint idea of what the civil war looked like because I was born in 1965 My children do not have any idea whatsoever of what the civil war looked like and I don’t want them to have any idea at all and God will not allow us to get involved in such situation where they will have ideas” Amaechi said He noted that the country is too big and too blessed to fail in leadership and not sufficiently meet the people’s needs He also disproved claims that he was aspiring to become president in the next elections explaining that his singular aim was to work with other Nigerians to take the country where it should be “For me I will join you to preach peace You will see us fighting politically The reason why we are fighting politically is because Nigeria is too big and too rich to remain the way we are If anybody tells you that we are not too big and too rich the person is lying We are too big and too rich not to be able to provide education for our children We are too big and too rich not to be able to provide health for our children “Individuals continue from year to year to put money in their pockets They say I’m fighting because I want to be president I’ve never told anybody I want to be president I am fighting just one cause: can we change the course of Nigeria If the Naval officers were here they would tell you about a ship that is directionless We can’t continue that way I’m not saying the president is doing well or not doing well I’m talking about the entire political class” Accordingly he called on all well-meaning Nigerians to join the race for a better Nigeria and commented on the extent of progress Nigeria’s neighbour Ghana had made at the country’s expense Amaechi lamented the absence of good leadership and of security water power health and other essential needs of the Nigerian people Governor Amaechi was at the event decorated by the state chairman of the Nigerian Legion King (Col) Philemon Chinda
