Starting WR Steve Ishmael leaves practice field early after collision

first_imgFORT DRUM, N.Y. – Sophomore wide receiver Steve Ishmael left Tuesday’s practice early after banging up his left knee in a collision with freshman center Andrejas Duerig while trying to field a punt.Ishmael, one of SU’s first-string wideouts on the preseason depth chart, was part of a punt returning drill and as he ran back and to his left to track a booming Riley Dixon punt, he drifted into another group’s drill where he collided with Duerig. Ishmael stayed on the ground for about five minutes and was surrounded by four trainers and then head coach Scott Shafer. When addressing the media shortly after 6 p.m., Shafer said it’s just a bruise on his left knee and that Ishmael “will be fine.”The sophomore led SU in receiving touchdowns last year with three, and was second in receptions (27) and receiving yards (415).He was helped over to the other side of the field by two trainers and laid down next to the ambulance on site while trainers worked on his left knee while he put his hands to his facemask.Wide receivers coach Bobby Acosta and director of football operations Drew Robinson came over before Ishmael eventually got up under his own power. He slowly paced back and forth a couple times before riding a stationary bike.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHe then progressed to a slow jog and returned to an area out of the media’s sight before coming back to the stationary bike.

Powered by Firework Team India sealed a historic 5-0 whitewash against New Zealand in the recent T20 series, and supporters are overwhelmed by the sheer brilliance of KL Rahul’s consistency on the pitch. The squad’s newfound wicket keeper has been an absolute stunner with the bat, scoring a total of 224 runs including two half centuries, highest in a bilateral T20 international series. Surprisingly in a shocking revelation, the run machine has been dropped out from the upcoming Test series against the Kiwis, and fans are fuming over social media.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Getty/AFPWhile India’s superstar Test opener Rohit Sharma is out for a calf injury suffered in the fifth T20 match, the country’s cricketing fandom was sure to see Rahul getting a call up for the red ball squad, after missing out both the South Africa and Bangladesh series back in 2019.However, the official Twitter handle of Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) this morning announced that Mayank Agarwal was chosen to replace the injured Sharma for the NZ tests. The statement read: “NEWS: Rohit Sharma has been ruled out of the upcoming ODI and the Test series against New Zealand. Mayank Agarwal has been named as his replacement in the ODI squad. #NZvIND #TeamIndia”Advertisement Replying to the original post, BCCI also listed the complete Test squad  this morning, and the Rahul’s name was not included.Check out the enlisted squad here-KL Rahul’s name was not included, and the keepers that were chosen for the Test series are Wriddhiman Saha and Rishabh Pant, the latter who’s injury back in the Australia ODI series had unearthed Rahul’s talent with the gloves.This was not what the fans expected, and the stormed over Twitter to express their dismay on BCCI’s decision. Here are some of the reactions-Rahul, who has earned 36 Test caps since his debut for the Men in Blue in 2014 against the Aussies, made his last red ball format appearance in the West Indies series last year.Team India’s Test series against Black Caps is kicking off on 21st February at the Basin Reserve cricket ground.Also read-Nayan Mongia says KL Rahul is a better wicketkeeper than this Indian legend!Hardik Pandya ruled out of Australia series, Ravindra Jadeja named replacement Advertisementlast_img read more

Cain breezes to seventh Cyswog’n’Fun Triathlon title; Ramsay surprises women’s division

first_imgJay Krieger was fifth with Nelson Rocha sixth and former Nelsonite Greg Welwood, now from Burnaby, seventh and Kurt Beerens eighth.Mike Krahn was ninth while Nelson’s David Harasym was tenth.“I had no idea to be completely honest, (winning this race) is very exciting,” Ramsay said after the race.“I only actually started training at the beginning of 2015 so this has been quite the process,” Ramsay added.“It’s very humbling getting beat by everyone and teenagers I train with all the time, but it’s good to have a good race.”In the sprint distance, or short course, race, Rob Roth edged out Jackson Konkin of Trail for the top prize.It appeared Konkin was the winner, however, the Silver City participant was penalized for going off course twice.Kyle Jensen was third with Charlie Cooper and Mike Orsini fourth and fifth, respectively.Sierra Cooper won the women’s race ahead of Sarah Berrett with Danita Schreiber, Kim Jolleymore and Louise Poole of Nelson rounding out the top five.“Nelson is a nice race and has a great course,” said Konkin, who flashed of course a few meters after coming off the Big Orange Bridge.Konkin, competing in his first individual category at the Cyswog’n’Fun Triathlon, set the pace early in the 500 meter swim, 22 km cycle and five km run.“Nice rolling hills on the bike and the run is pretty flat,” added Konkin, who was first out of the water and second on the bike after getting five minutes of penalty added to his time.The field was treated to post-race messages before awards were handed out at Lakeside Rotary Park.Team Lindsay Takes Home Team TitleThe trio of Shona Lindsay, Darin Lindsay and Leanne Kalabis blazed over the 1.5-kilometer swim, 39 km cycle and 10 km run distance to capture the Team Title in the 2015 Nelson Cyswog’n’Fun Triathlon Sunday at Lakeside Rotary Park.The Nelson trio finished ahead of Tri Like A Girl — Cynthia Pfeiffer, Kathryn Bibby-Fox and Leanne Douglas.Fishryder Bailey — Kim Irving, Mike Adams and Glenn McCallum — placed third ahead of Salmo ShopEasy — Steve Bradley, Mario Parnmentier and Brent Gallie.Worth Considering — Austin Ryter and Andrew Berry — took fourth ahead of Hey Baby . . . no more cryin’ — Nadine Benrhaba, Wayne Schuab and Jennifer Straub.There were 14 teams entered in the Team Category. Athletes have their favourite places to compete, and for Rossland’s Dallas Cain, the Nelson Cyswog’n’Fun Triathlon is number on his list.Cain breezed to his seventh title in the Heritage City, blowing the field away to capture the 2015 Nelson Cyswog’n’Fun Triathlon Sunday at Lakeside Rotary Park.Cain finished the 1.5-kilometer swim, 39 km cycle and 10 km run distance in a time of two hours and five minutes.The time was more than eight minutes ahead of second place finisher, Seth Bitting.Scott Nichol was third behind Bitting.“I love this race . . . this is just awesome,” Cain told The Nelson Daily after breezing across the finishing line at the main entrance to Lakeside Rotary Park to the cheering of his young family — kids Ryder, Ruby and newly born Thomas.“I was in Calgary last weekend for the big Ironman 70.3 . . . I would take this race any day. I just love it here. . . . It’s great.”Rookie triathlon competitor, Isabel Ramsay of Calgary, who has relatives in Nelson, was the top woman in the Olympic Distance race.Ramsay, surprised to win the woman’s top prize, finished in a time of 2:32.29.Suzie Poirier was second while Carol Currie finished third and Catherine Lundstrom of Nelson finished fourth.Like he has done so many times before, Cain wasn’t first out of the water — three minutes behind leader Stephen Webber, who finished fourth overall.However, on the bike, where the lanky Cain is so dangerous, is where the champion took over, blazing over the 39 kilometer Highway 3A course in under an hour.Then it was a nice jog over the Big Orange Bridge and back to secure his seventh Cyswog’n’Fun Triathlon title.“The swim is always challenging,” Cain explained. “It feels like your going against the current and for me never a fast swim time.”“The bike was awesome,” Cain added. “Not much wind. Rolled along and caught up to the front of the race around Six Mile and then just tried to put as much time into the lead as I could.“And the run, I had a feeling I has about four or five minute lead so that made it very enjoyable.”last_img read more

Qantas could cut travel time on Perth-London marathon

first_imgPhoto: Qantas. Australian national carrier Qantas may be able to speed up the time it takes to complete one of the world’s longest air journeys after it takes delivery of new Boeing Dreamliners next year.Qantas reportedly has developed a plan to drop its current A380 service from Melbourne to London via Dubai in 2018 and replace it with a Dreamliner service via the Western Australian capital, Perth.It’s understood, under that plan, the airline would start the daily Dreamliner service in Melbourne before stopping in Perth to begin the 14,500-kilometre non-stop service to London’s Heathrow airport.The airline’s alliance partner Emirates would replace the daily Qantas service to Dubai with its own super-jumbos, freeing up two Qantas A380s for use elsewhere in its network.The Perth-London leg would take the Dreamliner just under 17 hours, meaning that, with a buffer for air traffic congestion and delays, Qantas would allow about 17 hours and 50 minutes for the journey.The total Melbourne-London journey time, with a 90-minute transit in Perth, would be around 23 hours and 20 minutes – nearly an hour faster than Qantas’s current journey time via Dubai, which requires a two-hour stopover in the Middle East.When Qantas started flying one-stop services to London with long-range Boeing 747-400s via Asia in the 1990s, the journey took under 23 hours.  But the travelling time has edged up over the years because of increasing airways and airport congestion.Qantas’s current daily late evening Melbourne-London A380 service, arriving in the British capital at lunchtime, now officially takes 24 hours 15 minutes. The slightly longer daily A380 from Sydney – leaving Sydney late afternoon and arriving in London at breakfast time – takes 25 hours and five minutes.It is likely that the Melbourne-Perth-London service would be re-timed to arrive in the UK before 7am, using one of the Heathrow landing slots Qantas owns, but doesn’t use. Qantas has leased four of its eight daily “slot pairs” — worth up to $US60 million each, according to recent sale prices —  to its oneworld alliance partner, British Airways.Qantas has said it has no plans to axe its existing daily service from Melbourne to London, but is understood to have a contingency plan if the long-haul travel market weakens in the next 18 months.Since it announced its joint venture with Emirates in 2012 and changed its hub for London services from Singapore to Dubai, Qantas has had to periodically drop some of its weekly services from Melbourne because of low demand.This is in spite of the dramatic cutback in Qantas’s schedule to Europe in the past decade, almost halved from three daily 747-400s a day to London via Singapore, Bangkok and Hong Kong and a daily Flight to  German business capital Frankfurt via Singapore to just two A380s to London via Dubai.Qantas expects the new Perth-London service to be popular with travellers beginning their journey on the Australian east coast.”Our modelling shows that people from the east coast, as well as South Australia,  would fly domestically to Perth to connect to our non-stop London service,” says chief executive Alan Joyce.That would put seats in high demand as the Qantas Dreamliner 787-9 will fit only 236 people – less than half the 484 seats the airline now operates to London via Dubai.The schedule for the new service, including connections from Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, is expected to be announced in the first half of next yearlast_img read more

South African amputee golfer challenges the odds

first_imgAmputee golfer Daniël Slabbert is the current Nedbank SA disabled golf champion, a title he first won in 2011.(Image: Nedbank) MEDIA CONTACTS • Werner Botes   Publicity director,   The PR Collective   +27 76 275 2493 RELATED ARTICLES • Young SA disability activist lauded • ICT helps the blind • Laureus honour for Blade Runner • Finding strength through breast cancer • SA to host world’s richest golf eventCadine PillayYoung golfing champion Daniël Slabbert, an amputee, is living proof that adversity is no match for determination and a belief in one’s own talents.At just 21 years old, Slabbert is already a veteran of the golf course and a championship winner, and even with a prosthetic leg, he is capable of just about anything.While he also holds a successful reputation as a golfer, these days Slabbert is working towards his PGA (Professional Golfers Association) diploma at the University of Pretoria. Currently he holds the title of the Nedbank SA Disabled Golf Champion, a title he first won in 2011.That victory put him on the map in the golfing world, and this year, he successfully defended his title at the Langebaan Country Estate in the Western Cape. However, the success and recognition Slabbert has achieved in golf is a result of his determination to overcome the obstacles he faced as a young boy.Overcoming a tragedy  Slabbert, who grew up in the Northern Cape province, was just 14 years old when an accident on his parents’ farm near Kathu caused a severe injury to his leg.“I was jumping on a trampoline alongside the farm house,” he says. “I landed slightly off balance, and it shot me towards this small window. My left leg went through the window, and that was it.”Every major artery and tendon above his knee was severed. Slabbert was rushed to the Kathu hospital, which didn’t have enough blood for him. The heavily bleeding teenager was bundled into an ambulance and rushed to Kuruman about 60km away.Medics managed to perform the transfusion in time, and then transferred him to Kimberley where he spent, amazingly, only six days in the hospital following an amputation through his left knee, after doctors were unable to repair the damage.After the amputation, the wound to the young man’s leg took a few months to heal and his rehabilitation started.Slabbert was fitted with a prosthetic leg and started his road to recovery, all the while refusing to let go of his dream to play the world-renowned Gary Player Country Club course during the week of the Nedbank Golf Challenge, held annually at Sun City in the North West province.Making each day a personal victoryThe spirited young man stayed positive despite the debilitating accident, and pressed on, making each day a personal victory.Three months after the accident, he was back on the family farm and walking again with his new prosthetic. And just six years later, Slabbert is one of the brightest stars in South African disabled golf.Before the accident, he was a keen golfer, having inherited his aptitude for the sport from his father. He continued playing after losing his leg, garnering a reputation as a brilliant young golfer. Slabbert also took part in several tournaments for the South African Disabled Golf Association.“At one of these tournaments, I experienced difficulty in walking comfortably,” he says.Slabbert was put in touch with Marco du Plooy, a prosthetist from Pretoria.“I was impressed with the way he built prosthetic limbs,” says Slabbert. “Marco was very accommodating and attentive in his approach and he understands that a great prosthetic leg is reliant upon a great foot, knee and socket – the part where the remaining part of the amputated leg fits into the prosthetic leg.“The sockets Marco builds are a cut above the rest and he has been making my legs ever since,” he explains. “I am very fortunate to have the best leg prosthetic technology is capable of creating. It helps me to do my best on the golf course.”Slabbert says with much conviction that he is not planning to slow down at all and advises those in similar circumstances that persistence and a positive attitude makes anything possible.last_img read more

AAP to launch stir over Punjab power tariff hike

first_imgThe Aam Aadmi Party has decided to launch a Statewide stir against the ruling Congress government in Punjab over the recent increase in power tariffs.The Punjab State Electricity Regulatory Commission had last week announced an average tariff hike of 2.14% across categories for 2019-20.Senior AAP leader Aman Arora said the Congress government’s decision to increase electricity tariffs immediately after the Lok Sabha election reflected its “anti-people” attitude.‘Many tariff hikes’Mr. Arora said the Congress government during its nearly two-and-a-half-year tenure had hiked power tariffs as many as five times, whereas the AAP-led Delhi government had, instead of increasing tariffs, reduced it substantially.“AAP would first try to bring the Congress government on board over the recent increase in power tariffs through written submissions and by holding meetings with them. However, if the government fails to review its decision, the party would be left with no choice but to hold State-level protests,” he said.CM’s assuranceMeanwhile, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Monday assured farmers of eight hours of power supply every day for the ensuing paddy season, beginning June 13, while promising 24-hour supply of power to all other categories of consumers.At a meeting to review preparations by power companies — the Punjab State Power Corporation and the Punjab State Transmission Corporation — for supply of power during summer and paddy season, the Chief Minister said his government was committed to giving 100% cost subsidy to agriculture and free power to various categories of consumers.“The power companies briefed the Chief Minister about the arrangements made for meeting the demand of 14,000 MW, even though the demand anticipated by the Punjab State Power Corporation was likely to be 13,500 MW,” said an official statement.last_img read more
