Rabat- Morocco’s defender Mehdi Benatia is likely to join Real Madrid during the summer transfer period, according to Spanish sports website El Mnudo Deportivo. According to the same source, Real Madrid’s manager, Carlo Anceloti, put the Moroccan defender on the list of his priorities, in the likely event Portuguese defender Pepe leaves the Blancos for Monaco.Benatia was one of the players coveted by F.C Barcelona over the summer. El Mnudo Deportivo reported last May that the Catalan club was ready to pay up to 35 million euros ($ 48 million) for As Roma defender. But Barcelona’s signing of French defender Jeremy Mathieu, makes his transfer to the Camp Nou unlikely.© Morocco World News. All Rights Reserved.

As Sri Lanka is a key point along the Belt and Road route, China is increasing investment in the country. Some projects financed by China have helped Sri Lanka solidify its strategic position in South Asia’s geopolitical landscape. As China and Sri Lanka strengthen ties, India’s desires to maintain its balance of power in the region are understandable. China is willing to have healthy competition with India in Sri Lanka, China’s Global Times reported today.While China and Sri Lanka ramp up efforts to finalize a free trade agreement (FTA) this year, India is pushing for the signing of the Economic Technology Cooperation Agreement with Sri Lanka to broaden the scope of its existing FTA. China, for its part, is willing to have a healthy competition with India. Pushing forward investment facilitation is expected to play an important part in the upcoming FTA between China and Sri Lanka, while a tripartite arrangement on trade and investment is likely to be discussed among India, Sri Lanka and Singapore. Sri Lanka may even be able to serve as a gateway to help Chinese investors explore the Indian market as the island nation is keen to make itself an offshore center for South Asia, Global Times reported. China has no intention of turning the Belt and Road initiative into a zero-sum game, but India may still worry about the tentacles China stretches into the Indian Ocean. Despite a repeated pledge that Chinese investment in the Sri Lankan Hambantota port is normal business, India has remained alert. Further, Sri Lanka offered reassurances over the weekend that Chinese military activity would not be allowed at the port. Such words can be seen as diplomatic rhetoric to comfort India as Beijing and Colombo already have an understanding that the project is purely commercial.Nevertheless, India’s concern is a reminder that massive investment is fueling distrust of China’s increasing presence in the region. China is expected to further improve economic cooperation with Sri Lanka and such efforts are China’s response to the distrust from countries and the spreading of groundless rumors that Beijing has military ambitions in the Indian Ocean.

3Roger FedererSwitzerland55.5 7Juan BalcellsSpain54.3 In particular, Dominic Thiem, who knocked out Nadal in Madrid, was able to significantly erode Rafa’s second-serve dominance with a 7-5, 6-3 win. It was the only match Nadal lost on clay this season.What have these players done to put a dent — however temporary — in Nadal’s second serve? To answer that question, we must first look at why it’s so dominant to begin with.In the men’s game at the pro level, the first serve is a statistical powerhouse. It’s a guessing game for the returner — a nightmare of speed, spin and precision. When a player connects on his first serve, he usually wins the point.When a player misses the mark, it’s time for the second serve. That’s when anything can happen and where break points are won. It’s the real contest. It’s also where Nadal is making everyone else look like fools, statistically speaking.What makes Nadal’s second serve so goodThe second-best second server on clay is John Isner, a 6-foot-10 acing titan who can hammer balls more than 150 mph. Many of the career leaders in this second-serve category are like Isner — they bring the heat. 2John IsnerUnited States55.7 The clay-court masters of the second serveCareer leaders in share of points won off second serves on clay courts Alexander Zverev2ndItalian Open38–– Source: ATP OpponentSetTournamentSecond-Serve Points Won 1Rafael NadalSpain56.7% 5Andy RoddickUnited States54.8 10Thomas MusterAustria54.0 8Stan WawrinkaSwitzerland54.2 Dominic Thiem1stMadrid Open40%–– Beating Nadal means beating back his second serveShare of second-serve points that Rafael Nadal won in the four sets he lost on clay this season Fabio Fognini1stItalian Open50–– Rafael Nadal is likely more dominant at clay-court tennis than any other athlete is at any one thing. Winning a set, let alone a match, against Nadal on clay can seem almost hopeless. As he nears 32 years old, he’s already won 56 clay-court titles and a record 10 French Open championships — with a chance to add an 11th next week.While his forehand is explosive and his backhand is relentless, it’s possible Nadal’s greatest advantage is that he turns an element of the game that’s a weakness for so many others into a weapon: the second serve. He has had more success on his second serve than any player in tennis history, and on clay, his prowess here is even more pronounced.In his career, Nadal has won 56.7 percent of his second-serve points on clay. In the past year, he’s upped that percentage to 66.4 percent.1Data reflects his numbers going into the French Open. On Thursday, Nadal advanced to the third round with a 6-2, 6-1, 6-1 win over Guido Pella. For most pro players, anything better than break-even on second serve is considered good. Nadal has taken the safety net of the sport and turned it into a battle ax.This also unlocks the secret to beating him on his favorite surface. Occasionally players can and do make Nadal more human in this area. Bringing him back to Earth by cracking into his second-serve points, players can make the King of Clay look more like … just a prince, let’s say.This clay-court season, Nadal has lost exactly four sets of tennis. Notice what happened to the percentage of second-serve points Nadal won in those four sets: 6Stefanos TsitsipasGreece54.4 But Rafa’s not about speed on the serve. He’s not even close to the ATP Tour leaders in aces. In fact, his 1.9 career aces per match on clay is the lowest on the table above. (Isner’s rate is 16.3.) Nadal averages around 110 to 115 mph on his first serve and less than 100 mph on this statistically dominant second serve. Very meh speeds.The elements that make his second serve so crushing, particularly on clay, are part intuitive and part mystery. Nadal plays left-handed — a topsy-turvy problem for players conditioned to a world full of right-handed serves. A lefty slice serve travels the opposite way of what players are used to.But slice isn’t the menace on clay that it is elsewhere because players have more time to get to balls on this surface. So if slice is mitigated, why would Nadal’s lefty slice be more potent on clay?John Yandell is a tennis editor and coach who has examined the spins and techniques of hundreds of professional tennis players. He analyzed Nadal’s serve spins and concluded that while Nadal’s second serve “has an element of topspin” and is “heavy” at around 4,000 rotations per minute, it’s not categorically different from other serves on tour, which combine slice and topspin.“Most likely it’s just Rafa,” Yandell said. “What he does after he puts the serve in play.”So the secret could be in what he’s doing when that second serve comes back — a shot sometimes called “the plus-one.”How to win points off his second serveRafa has become a master at managing space on European red clay, where balls travel so far off the bounce that the court plays bigger and wider. On returns, he famously stands far back behind the baseline to take a big swing at the serve, then repositions himself according to where his shot lands. Though he can’t start deep behind the baseline when he serves, he uses that same repositioning approach with his plus-one shot, taking advantage of errors by overzealous returners to dominate these second-serve points.At the French Open on Tuesday, Nadal won a straight-sets victory in what was considered a tough first-round match. He not only took 62 percent of second-serve points, he also tempted Simone Bolelli into going for too much on those points and committing an unforgivable 23 errors — with only four winners.So what about the tougher competition? In Rome on May 19, Nadal faced Novak Djokovic, one of the greatest returners in tennis. The two clashed intensely before Nadal won the first set in a tiebreak. It was a set in which Nadal hit a lot of second serves and won his usual high percentage of second-serve points. It’s also a good case study in what Nadal does so well here in terms of positioning.In this video, Nadal’s second serve puts Djokovic in a defensive position early. An extended rally ensues until Nadal sees his opportunity to step into the court and strike with a forehand winner.But even what Djokovic did above is preferable to the alternative, which is missing the return all together. If you can prolong the rally, at least you have a fighting chance: Contrary to his reputation, Nadal doesn’t do nearly as well in long rallies as he does in short ones.Take note, Rafa challengers.

There has been a growing concern over the duration of the IPL matches and how teams are overshooting the time limit without any checks. Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane have already been docked Rs 12 lakh for the infringements, but the matches keep going on even after the stipulated time limit.Speaking on the issue, SunRisers Hyderabad coach Tom Moody has suggested that deductions be made from the net run rate of a team if their over rate is slow as only this will force captains to be sharper. Moody also believes that fines and deductions might not be the solution for teams as clearly, IPL captains do not seem to be bothered. Warner and BairstowIPL InstagramFormer England captain Michael Vaughan took to Twitter after the match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Capitals and said that the duration of the match should not be acceptable. T20 is a great product .. but games are now taking over 4 hrs .. Too long IMO .. The super over in Delhi took 30 mins !!!!! The 100 might just be the answer you never know …. #OnOn #IPL— Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) April 3, 2019Responding to this particular Tweet, Moody said that fines and penalties are not helping the cause and that net run rate of the infringing team should be impacted. This practice has been started in the Caribbean Premier League and has helped increase the pace of the game.Kaif speaks about the issue Delhi CapitalsBCCI/IPLDelhi Capitals fielding coach Mohammed Kaif has raised the issue of franchises like KKR and KXIP subbing slower fielders with fast men during matches in order to improve their over rate and also increase the pace of the game. “We saw in the last game against KXIP also, Punjab doing the same thing- Sarfraz Khan did not come out to field the entire game. We thought the ball hit his gloves and then it was told its an injury. I do not know where he was injured, the umpires would know that. But this is a new method being used by teams. Teams are being smart and making this sort of changes which is not right, according to me,” Kaif said.Kaif also said that T20 was meant to be fast-paced and that too many meetings lead to wasting a lot of time and it also muddles with the mind of the players.”There are long meetings before the game and then, time is wasted on strategising field positions. This, in turn, confuses players and bowlers. It is better to leave them with a clear mind. Suddenly you can’t have ten people advising the player,” he explained.
Kit Harington as Jon Snow with Liam Cunningham as Davos SeaworthHBOFans have been trying hard to put the disappointing final season of Game of Thrones behind them. But the cast keeps bringing it back up to the forefront of their minds.Reportedly, Game of Thrones star Kit Harington was asked about his character’s last moment on the show during a pre-Emmys chat with The Hollywood Reporter. Fans have apparently wondered about the finale of Game of Thrones, in which Snow — having been relegated back to the Night’s Watch — left Castle Black and was seen heading beyond the Wall. Was he was going on a ranging mission? Was he merely escorting the Free Folk? Or was he leaving the Night’s Watch behind and rejoining the Wildlings to live with them?Turns out, that final assumption (which, admittedly, was the most popular consensus online) is correct. Jon Snow and Daenerys TargaryenGame of Thrones Official Facebook”[S]eeing him go beyond the Wall back to something true, something honest, something pure with these people he was always told he belongs with — the Free Folk — it felt to me like he was finally free,” said the actor, who is currently nominated for the Emmys’ Best Actor in a Drama Series award. “Instead of being chained and sent to the Wall, it felt like he was set free. It was a really sweet ending. As much as he had done a horrible thing [in killing Daenerys], as much as he had felt that pain, the actual ending for him was finally being released.”We have to say that no matter how much the cast still tries to defend the final season, there was no excuse for the final episodes of season eight.
Priceless 140-year-old guitar accidentally smashed in The Hateful EightUse an Arduino to send emails and write novels by rocking out on a guitar Stay on target In the late ’90s, I “learned” to play the guitar in front of the computer, strumming a bulky electronic pick over a tennis racket to the tune of “Dude Looks Like a Lady.”But Fender Musical Instruments Corporation (FMIC) is taking a more modern approach to first-time fretboarding.The company—famous for its stringed instruments and amplifiers—last week launched Fender Play, a video-based learning platform for desktop and iPhone.Designed to ease beginners through the learning process, the program features hundreds of instructor-guided video lessons to help anyone master chords and riffs “in minutes.”“Ninety percent of people who pick up the guitar will drop out after one year, and we see Fender Play as a solution to that challenge,” Ethan Kaplan, general manager of Fender Digital, said in a statement. New users are asked a variety of questions about preferred instrument and genre (rock, pop, folk, country, or blues?), allowing the creation of a comprehensive, customized curriculum of personal “learning paths,” according to the firm.Courses focus on a song-based method that teach core techniques, with added tips and tricks from artists like U2, Shawn Mendes, The Rolling Stones, Foo Fighters, Meghan Trainor, and Carrie Underwood.“Our intuitive platform, whether used on its own or as a practice supplement to in-person lessons, allows first-time players and beginners to get started,” Kaplan explained. “It allows them to learn when and how they want in a digital setting with superior production and accuracy far surpassing your average online lesson video.”Fender Play, which requires a Wi-Fi or LTE connection, allows folks to choose which instruments, songs, and genres to study; track progress in real time, access a glossary of terms, chords, and videos; and more.“This is a pinnacle step for Fender Digital,” Kaplan said, boasting a continued progression “from analog to digital” to link offline and online experiences of playing.A digital syllabus was created by a panel of advisors from music programs, including the Musicians Institute in Hollywood and Thornton School of Music at University of Southern California in Los Angeles.Novices in the US, UK, and Canada can sign up for a free 30-day trial; cancel at any time, or stick with your new hobby for $19.99 per month.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

August 31, 2018 722 Views On Friday, the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (BCFP) released an “interpretive and procedural rule” designed to implement and clarify the requirements of section 104(a) of the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act amendment of the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA). In addition, the BCFP released an updated Filing Instructions Guide for 2018 HMDA data collected.The president signed the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act on May 24. The Act contains provisions aimed at decreasing the burden on smaller depository institutions when facing compliance with HMDA and its implementing regulation. According to the BCFP, several institutions have questions about the exemptions to HMDA made in the Act, specifically, how they impact collecting and filing for 2018. The new rule aims to clarify these concerns.According to the bureau, the rule gives insured depository institutions and insured credit unions covered by a partial the option to exempt data fields as long as they report all data fields within any exempt data point for which they report data. Additionally, the rule notes that loans and lines of credit that are otherwise HMDA reportable are the only category of loans and lines of credit which count toward the partial exemption threshold. For institutions that choose not to report a universal loan identifier, the rule designates a non-universal loan identifier for a partially exempt transaction for their exempt transactions, while clarifying the exception to the partial exemptions for negative Community Reinvestment Act examination history. The rule also clarifies which of the data points in Regulation C are covered by the partial exemptions.The BCFP plans to begin a notice-and-comment rulemaking at a later date. This will implement these interpretations and procedures into Regulation C and further implement the Act.
