Pune, Marathwada restive as pro-quota agitation turns violent

first_imgDespite an appeal from the coordinators of the Maratha Kranti Morcha to pro-quota demonstrators to adhere to a ‘code of conduct’ during the shutdown on Thursday, the agitation for Maratha reservation turned violent in parts of Pune and districts in the Marathwada region.A mob vandalised a section of the Pune District Collectorate, while traffic along the Mumbai-Pune expressway was held up for several hours during the day as protestors staged demonstration at the Urse toll plaza.The police resorted to a lathi charge and lobbed tear gas shells to disperse a restive mob of nearly 1,000 agitators pelting stones in the city’s Chandni Chowk area, after they blocked the Katraj-Dehu road bypass for several hours, leading to snarls along the Pune-Bengaluru highway.Sources said a police van was damaged while some personnel suffered minor injuries.In spite of a robust security shield in place, the spectre of vandalism loomed large in the Maharashtra’s hinterland as educational were closed and business establishments put up the shutters in most parts of the State in response to the shutdown call.Tension prevailed in parts of Pune in the latter half of the day despite the agitation proceeding peacefully till noon.A mob damaged the security cabin of the District Collectorate and destroyed some lamps after the peaceful conclusion of a demonstration called by the Sakal Maratha Samaj.“After a section of the Maratha reservation demonstrators submitted a memorandum on the quota issue, an aggressive mob of youngsters, aged 18-25 years, stormed the Collectorate premises demanding immediate reservation. Till then, the agitation [held by the Sakal Maratha Samaj] outside the building had ended without incident,” said Pune District Collector Naval Kishore Ram, adding that the situation was brought under control.The mob reportedly attempted to prevent television media personnel from trying to cover the incident.Shantaram Kunjir, one of the Morcha coordinators in Pune, remarked that the aggressors who vandalized the security cabin of the Collectorate were not part of the pro-quota demonstration and that Morcha coordinators could not control the situation in such cases.“This is becoming a familiar pattern. Following the conclusion of a sit-in by a Maratha outfit, one finds anti-social elements trying to disrupt the peace. It has become imperative to discern between true reservation agitators and miscreants who join in the agitation from rural areas,” said Rajendra Kondhare, general secretary of the Akhil Bhartiya Maratha Mahasangh.   Unrest in MarathwadaIn Aurangabad’s Waluj MIDC area, mobs torched a couple of private vehicles and a police van, compelling security personnel to resort to a lathi charge and fire tear-gas shells.Meanwhile, in Latur district, agitators pelted stones on the car of Congress legislator Trimbak Bhise.Mr. Bhise, who attempted to join the agitation, was instead heckled and jeered at him till he was compelled to beat a hasty retreat.Buses damaged in NashikDespite appeals to agitators not to indulge in wanton destruction of public property, incidents of pelting of stones on State Transport buses were reported from Nashik.According to authorities, the windows of some private vehicles were smashed after a hitherto peaceful ‘sit-in’ at Nashik’s Dongre Vasti Gruh Maidan suddenly turned violent. A mob heckled and shoved former legislator Manikrao Kokate when he attempted to join in the agitation.In Hingoli district, there were reports of a mob torching a mini school bus, while agitators, along with their livestock, staged roadblocks in some areas of Parbhani district.Besides Pune and Ahmednagar districts, schools, colleges and varsities remained shut in a number of districts in the Marathwada region, including Aurangabad, Jalna, Nanded and Beed.Agitators set up barricades of burnt tyres along the Madha-Shetphal road in rural Solapur.Internet services suspendedAs a prudential measure, district authorities suspended Internet services in seven taluks in Pune, including Baramati, Shirur, Junnar and Daund for the better part of the day. Likewise, there was a clampdown on Internet services in Sangli, Solapur and Kolhapur districts in western Maharashtra as well.Chakan MIDC, which witnessed an unprecedented bout of violence last week, came to a standstill following the shutdown call. Drones were deployed to preclude a replay of the vandalism and clashes of July 30, when more than 70 vehicles were damaged and eight policemen injured.Most IT companies in the Rajiv Gandhi Infotech Park in Pune’s Hinjewadi area remained closed.The district’s municipal bus transport service – Pune Mahanagar Parivahan Mahamandal Ltd (PMPML) – suspended bus services along major routes, while cab aggregators like Ola and Uber operated on a reduced scale.There were reports of one ST bus damaged in the city’s Laxmi Road area. Around 200 activists briefly staged a ‘rail roko’ agitation at the Lonavala station.Pro-quota agitators staged a sit-in outside the Baramati residence of Maratha strongman and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar. NCP leader Ajit Pawar later joined the demonstration and raised pro-reservation slogans.The Mumbai-Pune expressway witnessed markedly reduced vehicular movement while the traffic all but came to a standstill on the Pune-Ahmednagar road.Roadblocks were also erected at a number of points in Malegaon in Nashik district.last_img read more

Depleted India team arrives in West Indies, Raina says team motivated

first_imgA depleted Indian cricket team, sans senior players Sachin Tendulkar and regular captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, arrived in Port of Spain, Trinidad, for a limited-over series against the West Indies, starting on Saturday.Smartly dressed in a tee and trousers, the Indian players landed at around 20.30 hrs (local time) on Wednesday at the Piarco International Airport and were received by officials of Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board (TTCB) and sponsors Digicel.The Suresh Raina-led Indian side looked tired and exhausted after their long flight from Mumbai via London and Barbados.Stand-in skipper Raina’s eyes were blood-shot for lack of sleep and a few team members looked dishevelled from the exertions of a long, trans-Atlantic flight.Even though he looked tired and sleepless, Raina exuded confidence that his young team will do whatever it takes to win the lone Twenty20 game and the fivematch ODI series against the Caribbeans.”It’s a young side. The players want to do well for the country and themselves. They are extremely motivated,” said Raina on his arrival.Vice-captain Harbhajan Singh too opined that the starless Indian team would not be short of motivation in the upcoming series, irrespective of their relentless cricket schedule.”These are young boys who are looking to build a career for themselves. I don’t think tiredness or fatigue would be a factor,” said the off-spinner.Team manager Amitabh Chowdhary said that irrespective of the long flight, the side would attend its practice sessions as scheduled.India will play a Twenty20 match in Trinidad (June 4) and five ODIs on June 6 (Trinidad), June 8 (Trinidad), June 11 (Antigua), June 13 (Antigua) and June 16 (Jamaica).advertisementThe One-day series would be followed by a three-match Test series in Jamaica (June 20-24), Barbados (June 28-July 2) and Dominica (July 6-10).RAIN MARS PRACTICERain in the last few days hampered the West Indies in their practice session at the Queen’s Park Oval, the venue of the first three limited overs matches against India starting on Saturday, and they had to sweat it out at the indoor facilities.As West Indies trooped in Queen’s Park Oval for an intense training session, they were disappointed to know that rains of last few days had left the practice pitches unfit to use.The squad was left with no option but to train at Bryan Davis indoor nets but batting coach Desmond Haynes wasn’t ready to come to terms with the situation at the venue which will host a Twenty20 International and the first two ODIs of the series.Haynes sought out 22-year-old Darren Bravo, who is seen as next Brian Lara in this part of the world but had not done well against off-spinners in his career, for a batting tutorial on the least damaged pitch with a little mat rolled over the surface.- With PTI inputslast_img read more

Sabathia Going To Alcohol Rehab

first_imgNEW YORK — CC Sabathia walked into Manager Joe Girardi’s office in Baltimore on Oct. 4  and made a stunning admission: He has an alcohol problem.“The first thing he said is, ‘I need help,’” Girardi said Oct. 5 during a workout at Yankee Stadium for the AL wild-card game. “I was shocked.”Sabathia surprised many in the Yankees organization by revealing his problem. And with the team’s help, the burly left-hander is checking into a rehab center and will miss the postseason, a setback to the pitching staff the day before New York meets Houston in the AL wild-card game.The team issued a statement from the 2007 AL Young Award winner, who said he took the step to receive the care he needs and become the kind of person “I can be proud of.”“I love baseball and I love my teammates like brothers, and I am also fully aware that I am leaving at a time when we should all be coming together for one last push toward the World Series,” the 35-year-old Sabathia said. “It hurts me deeply to do this now, but I owe it to myself and to my family to get myself right. I want to take control of my disease, and I want to be a better man, father and player.”A leader in the clubhouse who helped the Yankees to the 2009 World Series championship, received the unconditional support of his teammates. “We play for CC now,” Alex Rodriguez said.Sabathia is 214-129 in 15 major league seasons and was 6-10 with a 4.73 ERA this year, slowed by his surgically repaired right knee. After returning from the disabled list and using a tighter brace, the 300-pound-plus pitcher was 2-1 with a 2.17 ERA in his last five starts. He got the win against Boston last week that clinched the Yankees’ return to the postseason following a rare two-year absence.“As difficult as this decision is to share publicly, I don’t want to run and hide,” Sabathia said. “Being an adult means being accountable. Being a baseball player means that others look up to you. I want my kids — and others who may have become fans of mine over the years — to know that I am not too big of a man to ask for help. I want to hold my head up high, have a full heart and be the type of person again that I can be proud of. And that’s exactly what I am going to do.”General manager Brian Cashman, along with the players and Girardi, would not elaborate on who was involved in helping Sabathia inform the team and come to the decision that he needed immediate help.But Cashman did say that it wasn’t one incident that affected the timing of the decision, and that no one asked the six-time All-Star to put off the decision until after the postseason.“It’s an acknowledgement that the issue that he has is bigger than what we are going through right now,” Cashman said.In mid-August, TMZ posted video of Sabathia getting into a confrontation with hecklers outside a nightclub in Toronto. “I just flipped out, you know. I could have handled it better,” Sabathia said a few days later. “Made a bad decision. Sometimes these things happen,” he said.The Yankees’ staff struggled in September, with Masahiro Tanaka’s hamstring injury and ineffective outings by Michael Pineda and Ivan Nova. If the Yankees beat the Astros, rookie Luis Severino, Pineda, Nova and Tanaka could be their starters in the AL Division Series against Kansas City. Sabathia likely would have gotten a start.“The fact that it’s occurred and this is something we are dealing with the day before our playoffs start makes me that much even more impressed with the courage that it’s taken,” Cashman said. “He could’ve come up with a lot of different things to hide whatever he is dealing with right now.”Known for his positive demeanor, charitable work and love of Cap’n Crunch cereal, Sabathia was a first-round draft pick by Cleveland in 1998 and made his big league debut three years later. Convinced they could not afford to re-sign him, the Indians traded him to Milwaukee during the 2008 season, and he helped the Brewers reach the playoffs.“We’re proud of him for stepping up and admitting he had a problem and realizing it’s a whole lot more important than what we’ve got going on around here,” Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner. “Since 2009 he’s been a huge part of what we’ve done around here. … Definitely would like to play well tomorrow night and advance and make him proud.”Sabathia signed a $161 million, seven-year contract with the Yankees before the 2009 season and helped New York win the World Series during his first year in the Bronx. Rather than exercise his right to terminate the contract after the 2011 season, he agreed to a new deal — adding a $25 million guaranteed salary for 2016 and a $25 million team option for 2017 with a $5 million buyout. That salary would become guaranteed if he doesn’t have a major left shoulder injury next season.“I am looking forward to being out on the field with my team next season playing the game that brings me so much happiness,” Sabathia said.(HOWIE RUMBERG, AP Baseball Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

India vs Australia: What awaits India in Perth after highs of Adelaide

first_imgVirat Kohli, it seemed, defied gravity and stayed in the air forever when KL Rahul grabbed a catch to dismiss Australia’s No. 11 Josh Hazlewood during the tense final session of the Adelaide Test on Monday.The India skipper was elated as his side ended a 10-year-drought for a Test win Down Under and became the first team from the Asian country the opening Test of a series in Australia.In the absence of the banned duo of Steve Smith and David Warner who had scored nearly 40% of Australia’s runs during the 2014-15 series, India had a slender advantage going into the four-match series.However, the memories of early-season heartbreaks in England and South Africa wherein India let go of opportunities to win the opening Tests still remained fresh.That’s seemingly why Kohli leapt up in the air with arguably with more relief than joy. India finally crossed the finish line, albeit after going through a few nervous moments, as described by coach Ravi Shastri.Buoyed by the win, India will head into the Perth Test, starting December 14 with a lot of confidence. The pressure certainly seems to be on the hosts, who have very little time to recover and fix the issues that led to their downfall in Adelaide.However, the narrative around the second Test in the lead up to it has been the “pace and bounce” that is expected to be on offer in Perth.The two teams are not going to play at the traditionally pace-rich WACA that has proved to be a graveyard for many visiting teams in the past but at the Optus Stadium, which will be hosting its first Test.advertisementA drop-in pitch will be used for the second Test but quite a few from the Australian camp, including captain Tim Paine and coach Justin Langer, have warned the high-flying visitors of a typical pace-rich Perth track at the new venue.Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting even opined that the hosts have a good opportunity to bounce back in the upcoming Test, adding that the conditions in Perth will suit Tim Paine’s men more than their opposition.”I think Perth will definitely suit our guys a lot more than the Indian players, but the Aussies need to bounce back pretty quickly. They played pretty poorly this week and got within 30 runs. And that’s not saying India played at their absolute best either, but they’re absolutely capable,” Ponting told cricket.com.au.Australia have the pace battery, one of the best going around, to dismantle even a strong batting line-up like India’s. However, Mitchell Starc-led three-man attack were far from impressive in Adelaide wherein off-spinner Nathan Lyon saved Australia’s blushes.Also, India, in the recent past, have found ways to win in difficult conditions.Take the Johannesburg Test of 2018 for example. Kohli’s men put behind the disappointment of having lost a three-match series and braved a “dangerous pitch” to clinch a rare win in the Rainbow Nation. Indian batsmen showed grit and the much-talked-about pace attack stepped up and shot out the Faf du Plessis-led hosts. The famous win at Lord’s in 2014 is another testament to India’s ability to overcome tough conditions.A fast pitch at Perth can prove to a double-edged sword for Australia. While the Indian batsman, barring a few, have struggled overseas in 2018, the hosts have weakened batting unit that was exposed in Adelaide.It is safe to say the Indian bowlers comfortably outshone their Australian counterparts in the first Test. Wouldn’t they be licking their lips, waiting in anticipation to make use of the “really fast” track in Perth?Also Read | Alyssa Healy takes a dig at Mitchell Johnson for criticising husband Starc on airAlso Read | Cheteshwar Pujara the difference between India and Australia in Adelaide: Allan BorderAlso See:last_img read more

Croatia draw with Greece in second leg to qualify for 2018 World Cup

first_imgShare on Messenger Share on Facebook World Cup 2018 qualifiers Croatia are in the World Cup finals after a 0-0 away draw on Sunday night put them through with a 4-1 aggregate across the two legs of their qualifying play-off with Greece.Zlatko Dalic’s side made sure of a place in Russia next summer by closing out a dour game that contained few chances. Dalic had been appointed in October after Croatia sacked their previous manager, Ante Cacic, following a 1-1 draw with Finland towards the end of the group stages of qualifying.Greece’s coach, Michael Skibbe, made six changes to the team that lost heavily in the first leg and the home side produced a much better performance this time. However, although Greece dominated possession, they never really looked like scoring and their one shot on target, an effort by Panagiotis Tachtsidis, was comfortably saved by Danijel Subasic.The result in Piraeus means Croatia have qualified for 10 out of 12 major tournaments since the Balkan state was founded in 1991. They have also won all five of their play-off ties to reach either World Cup or European Championship tournaments.There were no Croatia fans at the match, as both sides, fearful of possible violence, had agreed to ban away supporters from each leg.

Thoresen Shipping Launches New Pool

first_imgzoom Owner and operator of dry bulk Supramax vessels Thoresen Shipping has launched a new commercial pooling service called “Thoresen Grabulk Pool”, for ship-owners and operators of Supramax and Ultramax vessels.Thoresen said members of the new pool will benefit from consolidated commercial management that will market each vessel as part of a unified, single cohesive fleet in niche trades.Members’ assets will also have access to COA (contract of affreightment), short period, and hedging services.The new pool service will be led by director of Thoresen Shipping Commercial Team Mr.Henrik Jeremiassen and the Thoresen Shipping Commercial management team led by Mike Anderson.“Supramax/Ultramax dry bulk shipping desperately needs the consolidation currently present in the Cape sector and container shipping. In considering the demand side of dry bulk, the majority of seaborne cargo is currently controlled by a relatively small number of industrial majors,whereas the supply side of Supramax/Ultramax is highly fragmented with intense competition among owners for freigfreight,” said Mike Anderson, Commercial Director, Thoresen Shipping.Mr. Anderson noted that many owners carry the disadvantage of having relatively inexperienced commercial management determining freight charges and thereby perpetuating an unhealthy owners’ environment.“Industry consolidation and professional pooling among owners is going to be a critical component in restoring a sustainable model with a more stable pricing environment moving forward, benefitting freight and vessel alike,” added Mr. Anderson.New pool members are expected to benefit from Thoresen Shipping’s experience in building a strategic presence in higher yielding routes, with a focus on premium service and niche cargos targeting a diverse set of clients including a growing group of industrial majors.“We have spent the past several years proving our operational capabilities to be best in class,” commented Mr. Ian Claxton, Managing Director, Thoresen Shipping. “We now believe we can take them to market, thereby enabling owners of homogenous Supramax and Ultramax tonnage to benefit from economies of scale and enhanced returns on their assets. This pool will enable all members to benefit from a solid Thoresen reputation, and the enhanced performance that comes with quality, efficiency and solidity.”Press Releaselast_img read more

Losing 4 wickets in powerplay didnt help Karthik

first_imgChennai, April 10 (IANS) It was billed as the clash of the titans, but Kolkata Knight Riders failed to even get off the mark against Chennai Super Kings at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium in their Indian Premier League encounter. While Deepak Chahar started the show with the new ball, Harbhajan Singh and Imran Tahir sealed the deal in the middle overs. Speaking at the end of the game, KKR skipper Dinesh Karthik admitted that the team had not put on enough runs on the board. He said that losing four wickets in the powerplay put the KKR outfit on the back foot. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over Chandigarh “Definitely not enough runs on the board. These are tricky games and you don’t know how many runs to set with the dew and everything, but when the game finishes you feel you should gave got 20 more runs, so it’s always a Catch-22 situation. “When you lose four wickets in the powerplay, you are always behind the eight-ball. Then you have to consolidate and probably hope to go well towards the end, but we couldn’t do that,” he admitted. Karthik though made a special mention of how Andre Russell once again looked to stand tall and get counted, even though he didn’t have too many batsmen for support. “But credit to Russell, he showed a lot of maturity and I am pleased with the way he’s shaping up,” he said. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced later The captain also praised the overall attitude of the group and how they look to give it their all on the field. “I was happy with the general attitude, I like the way we tried defending a small total, especially the spinners with the wet ball. “I don’t think it was a lack of concentration from our side with the bat. We have been on the road for three games, and have won two in five days and we shouldn’t be too greedy. We’ve tried hard and as a captain I am okay with not coming up on top everyday,” he said. The KKR skipper now wants the boys to come back strongly. “When we return, we need to regroup. Two good teams playing and it should be a good match against Delhi next. (Message to the team) Enjoy, forget today, next game is a new game, a new day,” he said.last_img read more

UN rights chief condemns murder of 21 Christians in Libya urges rejection

“The brutal murder of these men, and the ghastly attempt to justify and glorify it in a video, should be roundly condemned by everyone, in particular by the people of Libya who should resist the urgings of takfiri groups,” High Commissioner Zeid said, referring to the ideology where one believer apostasies another and then condemns them as impure. “Murdering captives or hostages is prohibited under international law and Islamic law.”The mass beheading – of 20 Coptic Christians and apparently another Christian man – took place against the backdrop of increasing lawlessness in Libya as armed conflict continues. “This is not the first time that Coptic Christians have been targeted in Libya or elsewhere in the region,” said Mr. Zeid. “UN human rights staff have documented several incidents involving abductions of Egyptian Copts in Libya.”A UN human rights report on Libya was released last week, detailing rampant violence and lawlessness. It found that civilians in general are affected but specific groups, such as Coptic Christians, are targeted. In December last year, the bodies of three members of a Coptic Christian family were found in Sirte, while Churches and other religious sites have also been attacked in Libya over the past three years. As the Egyptian Government launched airstrikes in response to the latest atrocity, Mr. Zeid warned that any response must ensure full respect of the principles of distinction between civilians and fighters, and civilian objects and military objectives. Along with Coptic Christians, other minorities, as well as migrants, journalists and human rights defenders, are subject to attacks. On Saturday, UN staff received reports that the director of the human rights group, the National Commission for Human Rights, Hadi Ben Taleb, and one of its board members, Ahmed Osta, had been abducted by the al-Sa’dawi armed group in Tripoli. No information has since emerged on their fate or whereabouts. Mr. Zeid called for the release of the two men and, pending that, for their relatives to be informed of their location.The High Commissioner urged all parties in Libya to work towards a meaningful dialogue to bring to an end the current conflict. In particular, he urged constructive engagement with the efforts of Special Representative of the Secretary-General, Bernardino León to advance an inclusive political process aimed at addressing Libya’s daunting political and security challenges.“This is the only solution,” said Mr. Zeid. “The path to a peaceful and prosperous Libya – like anywhere else – involves upholding everyone’s human rights, irrespective of faith, ethnicity or political affiliation. Joining, copying or giving in to groups that glorify blood-letting is akin to buying a one-way ticket to disaster, not just for yourself, but for your relatives and your entire society. Adopting extremist takfiri behaviour will simply add layer upon layer of suffering on an already suffering country – as we have seen all too clearly in Syria and Iraq.”Later in the day at Headquarters in New York, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon met with Sameh Hassan Shokry Selim, Minister for Foreign Affairs of Egypt.Mr. Ban, according to his spokesperson, reiterated his condemnation of the killing of 21 Egyptians in Libya by Da’esh. He also discussed with the Minister issues of mutual concern, including the situations in Libya and Gaza, and the fight against terrorism. read more

In the format of the informal consultation, it was held without public access. Council President Joanna Wronecka did not speak to the media or issue any advisory about the meeting. Akbaruddin also said that after the end of the closed consultations “we noted that two states that made national statements tried to pass them off as the will of the international community”. He said that the UNSC is a “very deliberative institution. It works in a very considered manner. Its outcomes are provided to all of us through the president.” He said that since some were trying to masquerade national statements as the will of the international community, he was there to explain India’s national position. The Indian envoy also said that some were trying to project an alarmist situation in Kashmir to propagate their ideology, referring to Pakistan. Slamming Pakistan, which has been trying to whip up passions over Kashmir, he said: “Of particular concern is that one state is using terminology of jihad against and promoting violence in India, including by their leaders. Violence is no solution to the problems that all of us face. We are committed to and consistent in our previous position that all issues between India and Pakistan as well as India and any other country will be resolved bilaterally, peacefully and in a manner that behoves normal inter-state relations between countries. “We are saddened that terrorism is being fuelled, incendiary language and talk of jihad is being mentioned by people who should know better. We stand ready to continue our efforts towards peaceful resolution of all issues in an atmosphere free of terrorism and violence,” he said.last_img read more

NDAs defence budget keeps the spend steady aspires for sturdiness

first_imgIndia’s defence budget, a part of the country’s annual financial statement (budget), has received a moderate increase of 0.96 percent (effective increase of 1.16 percent) for 2016-17.Despite the positive vibes created by Make in India and a call for foreign and domestic private investors to capitalise on it, the defence allotment seems to lack lustre. An overall outlay of Rs 2.49 lakh crore for 2016 is only a slight increase over last year’s allocation.Added to it is the shortfall in the NDA regime’s utilisation rate of the allotted defence budget year-over-year. “The defence ministry has spent lesser by 13.5 percent (Rs 11,595 crore) of its allocated budget in 2015-16. And 2014-15 could only achieve an 85 percent spend-rate,” says an Economic Times report.A political-trend analysis suggests the NDA government’s term has always cut a smaller piece for defence, be it utilisation or allocation. Unlike the previous UPA government, which exceeded the utilisation rate by 8 percent and 4 percent a few times in its term, the NDA regime has continuously fallen short.Defence analysts, however, believe it also indicates the current government’s policy of import substitution. It is in this context that the $100-billion defence modernisation dream of the previous government seems to have been subjected to a reality check this time again.Amit Cowshish, who handles defence accounting in the ministry, told the Times of India, more than funds, the bigger problem was lack of clarity on the defence procurement policy. “It’s not that the money is not there, it’s that there’s still no clear-cut policy on indigenous manufacture, the procedures, etc. That is why even the money that has been allocated ends up not being spent.”With a steady capex, the Budget 2016 emphasises on sustaining foreign deals while reinvigorating the spirits of home-grown enterprises. However, with increasing defence wages and pension, modernisation could take a further beating unless the government sets its policies in order as a first priority.last_img read more

Record your games in 1080p with Hauppauges HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition

first_imgIt’s a well-known fact that gamers like to record their progress through video games. This is clear to see from all the game videos that get uploaded to YouTube, as well as the growing number of titles that actually have recording features built in.Inevitably this has led to some peripheral manufacturers launching dedicated digital video recording boxes compatible with the major consoles. One of those companies is Hauppauge, who has just announced an updated version of their HD PVR game recorder.The original HD PVR Gaming Edition connected to either an Xbox 360 or PS3 and recorded games as you played. The pass-through cable system meant there was no delay with the footage being transmitted and stored on your PC’s hard drive. The one shortcoming of the HD PVR was a limit to 1080i and 720p recording.With the launch of the HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition later this month, Hauppauge has solved that problem. You get the same no-delay Xbox 360 and PS3 recording, but now with the option of up to 1080p30 recording. All video is also recorded using H.264.Included with the device are two 6-foot HDMI cables, a 6-foot PS3 component cable, and one 9-foot USB cable so your laptop or PC doesn’t have to be right next to your TV. As for editing the video, Hauppauge includes a copy of ArcSoft ShowBiz, which should make clean up and video exporting pretty simple out the box.The HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition is expected to launch before the end of August for $169. If you’re serious about regularly recording your gaming sessions, one of these recorders and a large hard drive could make it a very simple task.last_img read more
