Urban Meyer Says Braxton Miller Position Change Story “Jumped The Gun”: “I Haven’t Made Those Decisions Yet”

The move has been met with praise from Buckeye fans, and members of the team. One key member of the program isn’t ready to fully commit to the move, however: head coach Urban Meyer. The three-time national champion told The Columbus Dispatch that reports of the official position change are a bit premature.“I haven’t made those decisions yet,” Meyer told The Dispatch. “It’s a little bit jumping the gun here. Braxton came to see me. He’s been talking to me about it (the switch). We’ve been working at it, but I’m not ready to say exactly how we’re going to use him yet.”Considering Pete Thamel’s SI report was based on a conversation with Miller, we have to imagine the move is, in fact, happening. Meyer is probably not thrilled that it was announced in July, giving Virginia Tech and others more than a month to prep for a J.T. Barrett or Cardale Jones-led offense, as well as figure out how to defend Miller as a skill guy. Otherwise, this would be a pretty crazy redirection by members of the Buckeye program.[Columbus Dispatch]last_img read more

With new Egypt capital being built what becomes of Cairo

first_imgCAIRO — Billboards across Cairo advertise luxury homes with “breathtaking” views in compounds with names like “La Verde” or “Vinci” in Egypt’s new capital that is under construction in the desert, miles from the Nile-side city which has been the seat of power for more than 1,000 years.Often, what lies behind the billboards are Cairo’s most overcrowded neighbourhoods, with shoddily built homes and dirt roads frequently inundated with sewage water.A city of some 20 million people combining charm and squalor, Cairo may soon witness an exodus by well-heeled residents, state employees and foreign embassies to the New Administrative Capital, as the vast project in the desert is provisionally known. It will be the latest phase in the flight of the rich, many of whom have already moved to gated communities in new suburbs, leaving the old Cairo in neglect and decay.The new capital — a proper name has yet to be found — is the $45 billion brainchild of general-turned-president Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, the biggest of the mega-projects he launched since taking office in 2014. He contends the projects, ranging from new roads and housing complexes to a Suez Canal expansion, attract investors and create jobs.Senior officials boastfully compare what has been built under el-Sissi to monuments like the Giza Pyramids.“History will do justice to this generation of Egyptians and our grandsons will remember its achievement, a wave of construction unprecedented in modern-day Egypt,” Prime Minister Mustafa Madbouly, also the housing minister, proclaimed.Critics call the new capital a vanity project, arguing its cost could have been better put to rebuilding the wrecked economy and refurbishing Cairo.They also see it as evidence of el-Sissi’s authoritarianism, launching a multibillion-dollar plan with little debate. El-Sissi often lashes out at those who question him, telling Egyptians to listen only to him and saying he’s answerable to God alone. He often says Egypt’s resources are limited — leading some Egyptians, struggling amid skyrocketing prices, to wonder why so much is spent on questionable projects.“There is something very wrong with the order of priorities,” said political analyst Hassan Nafaa. “Maybe el-Sissi wants to go down in history as the leader who built the new capital, but if Egyptians don’t see an improvement in their living conditions and services, he will be remembered as the president who destroyed what is left of the middle class.”The government argues that Cairo is already bursting at the seams and will grow to 40 million by 2050.The new city is being built on 170,000 acres about 28 miles east of Cairo and nearly twice its size. Construction began in 2016, and the first of its forecast 6.5 million residents are scheduled to move there next year.The city will house the presidency, Cabinet, parliament and ministries. Planners promise a 21-mile-long public park, an airport, an opera house, a sports complex and 20 skyscrapers, including Africa’s highest, at 345 metres.Madbouly denied the new city will only attract the well-off, saying it is “for all Egyptians.”Prices tell a different story. The smallest apartment there — 120 square meters — is expected to cost 1.3 million Egyptian pounds ($73,000), out of reach for a mid-level bureaucrat, who may make the equivalent of about $4,800 a year.“Those targeted to live in the new capital constitute a very, very limited segment of society,” said Nafaa.Ironically, the new capital could one day be overwhelmed by the old, as illegal construction expands. That has often been the way Cairo has evolved, with the rich moving out, only to move again as the city swells, adding layer after layer.“Throughout the history of Cairo, the ruling elite and the rich have failed to completely isolate themselves from the rest of the population,” said novelist Hamdy Abu Golayyel, who authored a book about the city called “Cairo, Streets and Stories.” It will take draconian laws to keep the new city distinct, he said.No one knows how Cairo will be impacted by a new capital and the shift of the seat of power outside of the city for the first time since the Muslim conquest in the 7th Century.Many government buildings in Cairo, for example, are palaces and mansions confiscated by the socialist government of the 1950s and 1960s. In theory, they could be renovated and turned into museums or hotels, proponents argue. But then, many such empty architectural treasures are already left to fall apart or even torn down.The government is renovating some of Cairo’s illegally built neighbourhoods. But in one case, it razed a run-down district and moved out residents after compensating them to make way for a high-end district.Amar Ali Hassan, a sociopolitical expert, believes Cairo’s woes will only deepen.“It could be neglected, become estranged and left to die a slow death,” he said.Sameh Abdallah Alayli, an urban planning expert, wrote in the Al-Shorouk newspaper that the idea of a new capital was unacceptable, construction should be halted and the focus put back on overhauling the ancient city.“Historical Cairo must remain the political capital of Egypt,” he wrote.___Associated Press writer Samy Magdy in Cairo contributed to this report.Hamza Hendawi, The Associated Presslast_img read more

February PV sales dip 111 may miss fullfiscal forecast

first_imgNew Delhi: Domestic passenger vehicle (PV) sales dropped 1.11 per cent in February, making it the seventh decline in eight months, prompting auto industry body SIAM to suggest that it will miss even the scaled down forecast of 6 per cent for the ongoing fiscal.The Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM) said uncertainty ahead of elections coupled, weak market sentiment and unfavourable factors like high interest rates and insurance cost are continuing to affect sales. In its latest data, SIAM said domestic PV sales were at 2,72,284 units in February, down from 2,75,346 units in the same month previous year. Also Read – Maruti cuts production for 8th straight month in Sep”What we are seeing is that the market sentiment is subdued. Interest rates are still high and we have not been able to recover from the impact we have had earlier on the year,” SIAM Director General Vishnu Mathur told reporters here. The sales decline in February is the seventh instance in the last eight months, with the only positive growth since July last year coming in October, he added. In the April-February period this fiscal, PV sales have grown 3.27 per cent at 30,85,640 units as against 29,87,859 units in the year-ago period. Also Read – Ensure strict implementation on ban of import of e-cigarettes: revenue to CustomsWith people postponing discretionary spends like buying cars ahead of the elections, coupled with the current subdued sentiments, Mathur said it was unlikely that March sales will be high. “So we are more or less looking to end the year at around 3 per cent growth which we have witnessed so far,” he added. In the beginning of the fiscal, SIAM had projected 8-10 per cent growth for PV sales but it was revised to around 6 per cent after dip in sales from the third quarter onwards. In February, PV market leader Maruti Suzuki India posted 0.19 per cent increase at 1,39,912 units. Hyundai Motor India saw its PV sales decline by 3.13 per cent to 43,110 units. Mahindra & Mahindra, however, posted 16.86 per cent growth at 26,106 units. SIAM said domestic car sales were also down 4.33 per cent to 1,71, 372 units as compared to 1,79,122 units in February 2018. MSI’s car sales were down 3.25 per cent at 1,00,513 units. Hyundai Motor India also witnessed a decline of 6.43 per cent at 32,792 units. Honda Cars India, however, posted a jump of 46.53 per cent at 10,920 units in February this year. Total two-wheeler sales in February were down 4.22 per cent to 16,15,071 units compared to 16,86,180 units in the year-ago month, SIAM said. Motorcycle sales last month declined by 0.58 per cent to 10,47,486 units as against 10,53,596 units a year earlier. Market leader Hero MotoCorp posted 1.65 per cent increase in its bike sales in February at 5,44,073 units. Rival Bajaj Auto also posted a growth of 6.28 per cent at 1,86,523 units, while Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) witnessed a decline of 11.66 per cent at 1,45,260 units. Scooter sales in February stood at 4,92,584 units as against 5,60,653 units in the same month last year, down 12.14 per cent, SIAM said. Scooter market leader HMSI saw its sales dip by 19 per cent to 2,63,299 units during the month. Similarly, Chennai-based TVS Motor Co also witnessed 8.68 per cent drop in scooter sales at 83,543 units during the month. Hero MotoCorp posted 19.36 per cent decline at 56,543 units. Sales of commercial vehicles was also down 0.43 per cent to 87,436 units in February, SIAM said. Vehicle sales across categories registered a decline of 3.65 per cent to 20,34,768 units from 21,11,804 units in February 2018, it added. Meanwhile, Hyundai Motor India said on Friday that it would launch a subscription model initially in six cities across the country as part of its partnership with self-drive car-sharing firm Revv. Hyundai Subscription aims to provide an opportunity to the customers to experience Hyundai product portfolio, with hassle-free ownership, flexibility and limited commitment through subscription-based ownership model.last_img read more

Venezuela Saudi oil output slumps Opec

first_imgParis: OPEC’s oil output dropped sharply last month as a result of steep production cuts in Venezuela and kingpin Saudi Arabia, the cartel said on Wednesday. The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries’ combined oil production plunged by 534,000 barrels per day in March, it said in a report citing secondary sources. OPEC does not release its own production data. Venezuela, in the throes of political troubles, sanctions and repeated power blackouts, pumped 289,000 fewer barrels per day than the previous month, taking production to 732,000 bpd. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalThis compares to the more than a million barrels per day Venezuela was pumping at the start of the year, and its production capacity of nearly two mbpd in 2017. Kingpin Saudi Arabia’s production, meanwhile, fell by 324,000 bpd, according to OPEC’s sources, the report said. This, analysts say, is a result of the kingdom’s determination to support oil prices in line with a production cut deal between OPEC countries and non-member Russia that is to run until June. These efforts appear to be paying off. Oil prices rose at their fastest pace in 14 years over the first quarter of the year. On Wednesday the WTI futures contract, the benchmark for US production, stood at 64.42 and its European counterpart, Brent, at 70.95.last_img read more

Spare a thought for the poor and the needy says Sanjay Mitra

first_imgKolkata: Union Defence secretary Sanjay Mitra on Saturday urged the management students of International Management Institute (IMI), Kolkata, to contribute towards making the life of the poor and deprived in the county better. “As alumni of this prestigious school, the array of possibilities for carving out a successful career is waiting for you.

Ohio State womens volleyball bounces back with pair of wins

OSU junior outside hitter Katie Mitchell (17) goes for a spike during warm-ups preceding a match against Maryland on Nov. 7 at St. John Arena. OSU won, 3-1. Credit: Madelyn Grant / Lantern photographerThe No. 18 Ohio State women’s volleyball team bounced back from a pair of 3-0 losses by topping both Rutgers and Maryland over the weekend.Against the Scarlet Knights (7-20, 0-14), the Buckeyes (18-8, 9-5) carried the momentum from the beginning of the match, as Rutgers tallied a .013 attacking percentage for the match and lost in straight sets (25-9, 25-18, 25-13).The Buckeyes’ largest lead against the Scarlet Knights came in the first set, where they started the match on a 21-6 run.While junior outside hitter Elizabeth Campbell led all players in kills with 11, senior outside hitter Erin Sekinger and sophomore middle blocker Taylor Sandbothe had 10 and nine kills, respectively. They all outscored the Scarlet Knights’ kills leaders junior outside hitter Alex Lassa and sophomore middle blocker Lauren Cloyd, who each had six.Sophomore libero Valeria León had a career-high five service aces, marking a career-high in points, as well.Coach Geoff Carlston said after the win that he doesn’t expect sophomore outside hitter Kylie Randall to return this season, because she has an injured ankle.Scarlet Knights senior setter Nicole Bayer, a native of Concord, Ohio, led her team in assists with 14 and added six digs.Even though Rutgers is the only team in the Big Ten without a conference win, Sekinger said the team always makes adjustments regardless of its opponent.“We just had to really focus on handling our own business because we don’t like to take teams lightly in the Big Ten because they’re in the Big Ten for a reason,” Sekinger said.  “So we just had to focus on doing the little things.”Against the Terrapins (9-16, 2-12), the Buckeyes withstood a run by Maryland after the second set to win the match in four frames (25-16, 20-25, 25-19, 25-12).Freshman outside hitter Luisa Schirmer and Sekinger each tallied 13 kills, while Campbell added 10. Junior middle blocker Tyler Richardson had eight kills on 12 total attacks for a .583 attacking percentage.After the match, Richardson said the team meshed well on Friday night.“This week (in practice) we really focused on defense and being able to work our middles into the offense,” Richardson said.  “Our setter did a great job and we played great as a team. Our defense and offense tonight was really good.”Sophomore setter Whitney Craigo, a native of Avon Lake, Ohio, led the Terrapins in assists with 22 while providing two service aces and two digs. Junior outside hitter Emily Fraik, a native of Wyoming, Ohio, had seven digs, three service aces and three kills.The Buckeyes are currently tied with No. 12 Purdue (19-7, 9-5) in the Big Ten standings, with four teams ahead of them.The Buckeyes are set to travel to No. 9 Illinois (19-6, 11-3) and Michigan (11-13, 6-8) this week.
