Virat Kohli fires back at critics over his batting form after NZ trashing

Powered by Firework A 3-0 whitewash in the ODIs, and now lacklustre batting performance resulting in the first Test match defeat. The tour of New Zealand, what started with a stunning T20 victory, is now turning sour for Virat Kohli and the squad, and the captain himself isn’t having the best of time on the 22 yards. Hitting his lowest series average of the last 5 years in the ODI, and scored only 21 across the two innings in the first Test. As a result, reprimand is flowing in from critics and pundits, but Kohli has made a strong statement against them.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Getty/AFPKnown for his passion and endorsement of the Test format, the Indian supporters were expecting a strong comeback in the Test series, for a victorious conclusion of the lengthy tour of New Zealand. Unfortunately, the Kiwis have pressed on with their trong bowling performance, and the Indian batting order failing massively, resulting a historical 10-wicket victory for the hosts today at Basin Reserve.Kohli scored a total of 21 in the first Test, and 19 in the second innings on the 3rd day came off including three boundaries, until losing his wicket against Trent Boult in the 45th over, as India went down 113 for 4.Advertisement Although, the star batsman feels otherwise about his form on the pitch: “I am absolutely fine, I am batting really well. I feel that sometimes that scores don’t reflect the way you are batting. That’s what happens sometimes when you don’t execute really well.”In his 9 years of international Test cricket, Kohli has earned 84 caps. With stunning figures of 7202 runs and 54.97 batting average, the player feels the worse forms are not to be overthought.Advertisement “Look when you play so much cricket and play for so long, you will obviously have 3-4 innings which don’t go your way. If you try and make too much out of it, it will keep piling on. I think it’s about staying in a good space,” Kohli added.The 31 year old, who is holding the top position in the ICC’s Test batting rankings with 928 ratings, might see him dropping down in the list regarding the performance in the second Test.However, Kohli concluded that the final result matters more than his personal feats: “It doesn’t matter what I do. It’s not about my performance on the tour. If the team wins, even a 40 is good. If the team loses, even a 100 is irrelevant. I am going to stay in that mindset.”With trailing 1-0 behind the Black Caps, India is preparing for the second and series concluding Test this Saturday at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch.Also read-India vs New Zealand 1st test results: Hosts make short work of woeful Indian batting to go 1-0 up Advertisementlast_img read more

Green light for Walmart deal

first_img1 June 2011 South Africa’s Competition Tribunal has given US retail giant Walmart the go-ahead for its R16.5-billion acquisition of a controlling stake in local retailer Massmart, with conditions.“Today the Competition Tribunal approved the merger between Walmart and Massmart subject to certain conditions,” the tribunal said in a statement on Tuesday.No further details were given. Full reasons for the tribunal’s decision will be made public within 20 working days.In January, shareholders voted to accept Walmart’s bid to acquire 51 percent of Massmart for R148 a share in a deal worth around R16.5-billion.The Competition Commission initially recommended the deal go ahead without conditions. However, it later changed its mind based on new evidence and recommended that Massmart reinstate 503 retrenched workers and the new merged entity be forced to honour existing agreements with trade unions for the next three years.Earlier in May, the tribunal held hearings in Pretoria during which trade unionists and government departments argued that jobs and local procurement in South Africa could be jeopardised by the deal.Unionists argued that Walmart was known to be anti-union and hard on labour.Unions and government wanted the tribunal to either decline permission for the deal to go ahead, or alternatively impose enforceable conditions on Walmart.However, Walmart argued that imposing conditions would violate numerous international trade agreements signed by the South African government. It would also give an unfair advantage to the merged entities’ competitors.Walmart said it was prepared to commit to no retrenchments for two years, and that the merged entity would honour all labour agreements to which Massmart was a party.Massmart and Walmart also vowed to spend R100-million to develop local South African suppliers over the next three years.Government said it was concerned about Walmart’s procurement policies. It argued if Walmart were a country, it would be China’s eighth largest trading partner.Walmart’s belief in low prices governed its procurement policies and that there was a substantial public interest in the deal and its effects, according to the government.The Massmart group includes Game, Dion Wired, Makro, Builders Warehouse and Masscash.Walmart operates around the world, including Canada, Brazil, China, Chile, Japan and Mexico. It wants to buy the stake in Massmart in order to get a stake in emerging African markets.Sapalast_img read more

Madiba Music: Your 67-minute Mandela Day Mixtape

first_imgIn celebration of Mandela Day, here is an essential list of the best Madiba-inspired musical moments. Spend your 67 minutes doing something to honour the man and his life with this soundtrack of great local and international artists paying tribute to South Africa’s greatest citizen. Nelson Mandela dances on stage in October, 1995, with supporters in Johannesburg, South Africa. (Image: Reuters)• South African music• Nelson Mandela – a timeline • Watch: Salif Keita and Black Mambazo call for harmony in Africa• Remembering Mandela, one year on• Jazz trumpets the notes of freedom CD AndersonNelson Mandela called music the “great blessing”, and believed that it has the power to “unite us all to sing with one voice”, to give us all the opportunity to both dream and dance.Madiba inspired a diverse collection of musicians, from ska punkers to classical composers, world-beating rock stars and jazz greats, and they all responded with some amazing tributes.In celebration of Mandela Day, here is an essential list of the best Madiba musical moments, including some of his personal favourites, as well as songs that helped define his place in history and our hearts.While you spend 67 minutes doing something to honour the great man and his life, take a moment to listen to the songs below and join the celebration.Hugh Masekela – Bring Him Back Home One of South Africa’s jazz greats, Masekela spent much of his life in exile, and that longing to return home inspired this somber but powerful lament to both the African diaspora and Mandela himself, the guiding light for those returning home to a new South Africa. Masekela had the honour of playing the song live for Madiba on his release from prison in 1990.Simple Minds – Mandela DayA song celebrating an imprisoned African leader by a Scottish rock band makes for an interesting dichotomy, but it is an appropriate one: Simple Minds’ singer Jim Kerr was one of the more outspoken proponents of the UK’s anti-apartheid movement. This celebratory song is, naturally, the unofficial anthem of July 18th, but a more lasting legacy was its part in bringing the story of Mandela and apartheid South Africa to a global audience during the 1980s.Yvonne Chaka Chaka – Umqombothi According to Chaka Chaka, this song – an upbeat sing-along about traditional African beer – was Mandela’s favourite song of all time. With its bold African groove, catchy chorus and addictive rhythm, it is the perfect fit for our famous Dancing President.Abdullah Ibrahim – MannenbergThe quintessential sound of South Africa, instantly recognised by all its citizens by the rolling piano theme and dynamic tempo. Named after the vibrant District Six area scarred by forced removals during apartheid, the song’s uplifting coda also acts as a perfect motif for a returning hero to free his people.Brenda Fassie – Black PresidentMa Brrr was one of Madiba’s favourite singers, and she celebrated his presidency in 1994 with this impassioned pledge of allegiance to his leadership and his dream for a free South Africa. The song inspired a generation and made her one of the country’s greatest musical icons.Vusi Mahlasela – When You Come BackThe Voice of Mamelodi has enjoyed a long career as a musical storyteller at home and around the world. In 1992, he greeted Madiba and other returning heroes with the “ringing of bells and the beating of drums” in this joyful harmony that quickly become his signature song. The song, much like Mandela, calls for humanity to “give something to the world and not just take from it.”The Specials AKA – Free Nelson MandelaWithout doubt the most famous song about Madiba, this rollicking ska protest song inspired the youth-led anti-apartheid movement across the world during the 1980s. Today, the song’s lyrics still have resonance, highlighting the ideals of Nelson Mandela to overcome poverty through positive action.Johnny Clegg – Asimbonanga (We have not seen him)The live performance of this song says it all: a powerful performer with a powerful song, joined on stage by the most powerful icon in South African history. Asimbonanga is a joyous refrain to all South Africans to be inspired by the life and work of Madiba and use it every day to continue his legacy.U2 – Ordinary LoveWorld citizen Bono has always had a strong connection to Madiba and his ideals, so it was appropriate that U2 was asked to write the theme song for the “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom” film in 2013. The song, released a week before Madiba died, is a touching final tribute to the great man and his life’s work.Some other great Madiba-inspired tracks to soundtrack your 67 minutes this Mandela Day: Zahara featuring Mzwakhe Mbuli – Mandela Youssou N’dour – Nelson MandelaSipho Hotstix Mabuse – NelsonKoos Kombuis – Madiba BayWilhelm Kaiser-Lindemann – Hommage a Nelson M for Cello and PercussionMiles Davis – Amandlalast_img read more

Maple syrup production season gives way to maple syrup eating season

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Shelly Detwiler, berry farmer and dieticianWhat’s up with all the buckets on the trees? It’s maple syrup time! According to the Ohio Maple Producers Association, maple syrup contributes $5 million to our state’s economy. Only 13 states produce maple syrup and Ohio ranks in the upper half, producing almost 100,000 gallons. The demand for maple syrup is bigger than is currently produced.The history behind maple syrup boils down to the Indians finding the sap oozing from broken branches. The story goes that the Indians hollowed out logs, filled it with the sap and then threw in hot coals to reduce the syrup.The Johnson Family in Cable has been making syrup since 1934. Eric Johnson said 2019 has been a good year for maple syrup for the operation. Their family produces, on average, 300 gallons of syrup a year that they market right on site as well as local farmers markets. Yo-yoing winter temperatures actually improve syrup production. Based largely on the temperature fluctuations, syrup season starts around Feb. 15 and goes until the buds and honeybees come (around April 1). It takes 45 to 50 gallons of sap to make one gallon of syrup. Eric uses wood fires to cook down his sweet syrup, which takes longer than other producers who use reverse osmosis.Pure maple syrup must be grade A and labeled as such to be sold in a retail establishment. All maple syrup is produced with reduction. The syrup recently took on a new grading system based on color.There are three grades of maple syrup. Grade A Golden Delicate Grade A Amber RichGrade A Dark RobustGolden maple syrup has a delicate taste. It is the most popular. Amber maple syrup has a slightly darker color and a richer taste. Consumers like this for its fuller bodied and medium taste. Dark maple syrup has a robust taste than amber and golden syrup. Very dark maple syrup has a very strong taste and is usually used for sugar.The difference in the colors? It sounds like a mystery to me, but Eric says that color can be affected by: the part of the season the sap is harvested, length of cooking and/or rainfall. Most of Eric’s 2019 syrup has been graded as amber rich. He said the industry encourages the golden delicate grade but customers seem to request darker syrup, whether this is due to comparison to commercial syrups on the market or some other reason is unknown.Nutritionally speaking maple syrup has a similar carbohydrate content as white/brown sugar with 13 grams of carbohydrates per tablespoon. Maple syrup has a few more minerals and antioxidants than other sugars such as manganese and zinc, however it’s still packs plenty of sugar and calories. Don’t get caught up in the latest food trends, enjoy maple syrup in moderation because of taste, flavor and likeability. Maple syrup is a great way to sweeten your waffles, salad dressings, or even cook a hot dog in (which I enjoyed at Johnsons!) Eat well and Healthy,Shelly Spaghetti Squash with Maple Syrup and Shallots pioneerwoman.com2 whole Medium Spaghetti Squash3 Tablespoons Butter2 whole Shallots, Finely Minced1/4 cup Maple SyrupDash of SaltDash of Nutmeg Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Your Real Brand > Your Personal Brand

first_imgThis idea is not what you think it is. It’s different and in some ways, more important. It’s about your brand. Not the manufactured and manicured brand that social media allows you to present to the world. You know, the one you work hard to build.This is about your real brand. The brand that has nothing to do with social media. This brand is made up of how people feel about interacting with you personally, in real life. This brand isn’t the facade; this brand is the foundation and the structure. That experience is your real brand.What is the experience people have when they meet you?Do you give the person you are interacting with your full and undivided attention, making them feel that they are the most important person during the time you spend with them? Or was some distraction more important?How do you treat people who hold no position of power or influence and can do nothing for you? Do you acknowledge them, giving them the significance they may feel that they are lacking? Do you ignore them, recognizing they can do nothing for you?Is your behavior indicative of someone who does good work, who is conscientious, and who cares deeply? Is your brand that of excellence, of going the extra mile? Or is your brand “skating by,” doing only what is necessary and nothing more?This brand, your real brand, is more important than your brand on the internet and social media. It is your real character. It’s who you are when no one is looking and when you are not taking a selfie.Now, if your “personal brand” isn’t exactly your “real brand,” then your “personal brand” isn’t your brand. That incongruity means that what others see is not what they get. That your talk is not your walk. That it is, in fact, a facade and that the foundation and the structure are weak, not strong enough to support a better brand.You are better off improving your “real brand” than your “personal brand.” Who you are matters more than what you do.
