Cadence when running may be less important for performance than previously thought

first_imgNew research has found evidence to suggest that reaching an optimal cadence on 180 steps per minute may not have such a large effect on speed and performance. Image: Istock.com/davidf via AFP RelaxnewsA new small-scale United States study has found that cadence, or the amount of steps you take while running, may not have such a big effect on speed and efficiency as previously thought.

Usain Bolt and Justin Gatlin cruise into 200 metres semis

first_imgA tired Usain Bolt and an emotionally fatigued Justin Gatlin progressed towards their second blockbuster sprint showdown of the world championships by easing through the 200 metres heats on Tuesday.Bolt, who beat Gatlin to retain his 100 metres title at the Bird’s Nest on Sunday, shot out of the blocks and led for the entire race before easing up over the final 15 metres to cross the line in 20.28 seconds.The 29-year-old Jamaican said he was still feeling the effects of the 100 metres but will be looking to raise the pace in Wednesday’s semi-finals before peaking for Thursday’s final, where he could win a fourth successive 200 metres gold.”Tired, tired, tired,” the Olympic champion and world record holder told reporters.Also read: Every second counts for Usain Bolt to retain his title of the fastest man”This means a lot more to me. I’m a little worried about my fitness and I need to work a lot over 200m. But I’m a better technical runner over the 200m so we’ll see what happens.”I’m tired and my legs are still sore, but I’m going to have another bath tonight and, hopefully, tomorrow I’ll be there.”Gatlin, unbeaten in the 200 metres since 2013 and the 2005 world champion at the distance before his second doping ban, was even more dominant in the following heat, maintaining his form through the line to win in 20.19.The 33-year-old American, who owns the fastest time of the year (19.57), said he would have eased up but for the presence behind him of Japan’s Abdul Hakim Sani Brown, who finished second in 20.35.advertisement”The 100 metres final was a difficult one for me, also emotionally,” said Gatlin.”But now I’m going for 200m. I have two days to go. My race would have been slower but Sani pushed me so much. This young guy from Japan is phenomenal.”Anguillan young gun Zharnel Hughes, who trains with Bolt in Jamaica but runs for Britain, edged the fifth heat in 20.13 courtesy of his dip for the line, while Panama’s Alonso Edwards ran 20.11 to win the second.The fastest time of the heats, whoever, came from Ramil Guliyev, who ran quick times as a junior but lost a big chunk of his career to a ban after deciding to represent Turkey rather than his native Azerbaijan.The tattooed 25-year-old ran a national record of 20.01 but said he thought he go faster.”It was a good run, now I’ll prepare for the next one,” he said.last_img read more

BCCI Secretary asks chief’s contribution other than taking passes, clicking photos

first_imgThe tiff between acting BCCI President C.K. Khanna and Committee of Administrators (CoA) member Diana Edulji over the presentation of the IPL trophy to the winning captain has taken a new turn.Acting BCCI Secretary Amitabh Choudhary has taken a dig at Khanna and said that apart from being someone who has time and again looked for opportunities to get photographed, there has been little contribution from the acting president.In a letter, which has been accessed by IANS, Choudhary has taken a dig at Khanna and questioned his contribution as the BCCI President apart from sending greetings to people and collecting passes from all and sundry. He also pointed out how the President has never spoken a word in important meetings of the cricket board.”As fate would have it, the Supreme Court while removing the President on January 2, 2017 had been left with no alternative but to appoint one of the five Vice Presidents in his place. And thus you came to occupy the seat meant for titans like Grant Govan, Sir Sikandar Hayat Khan, Vizianagram, M.A. Chidambaram, Z.R. Irani, N.K.P. Salve, Raj Singh Dungarpur, Jagmohan Dalmiya, Sharad Pawar and Shashank Manohar. Each one of these giants commanded awe and respect on account of their stature and contribution to the glorious game of cricket.”One had only hoped that at least the circumstances of this elevation and positions and responsibilities of the office which these hitherto geniuses had occupied would help you rise above the most undistinguished stretch that you have had so far.advertisement”What have you done since fate ensconced you there apart from collecting passes from all and sundry, extending new years’-Diwali-Christmas greetings and not missing a single opportunity for getting photographed least realising how much damage it has brought to the BCCI’s pride and reputation,” Choudhary wrote.”I don’t remember a single word either having been uttered by you in the meetings you considered important enough to attend or on email or other communication drawing a blank on the trying subjects of Lodha Reforms or Supreme Court judgment of July 18, 2016, various big value auctions conducted by the BCCI, issue of sexual harassment or for that matter even the recent imbroglio on the course of action under FEMA,” he added.The Secretary then went on to again question why the President didn’t respond to the questions as to why Khanna hadn’t presented the winner’s trophy at the end of the fifth and final ODI between India and Australia at the Feroz Shah Kotla despite several mails.”After umpteen requests you have chosen to abstain on this subject (India-Australia presentation). As if these were not enough, now the world has learnt of your conduct immediately preceding the IPL trophy presentation on May 12. It seems the only thing that preoccupied your mind on the said day was the presentation of the trophy by yourself despite humiliating BCCI on March 13 at Delhi.”To achieve this end, you were learnt to have subjected yourself to the indignity of carrying in your pocket, as President, a print out of the email written by the acting Secretary (who was not even present in Hyderabad) in 2017 while conveniently forgetting this ongoing email trail,” Choudhary wrote.The Secretary further added that the contents of his 2017 mail weren’t even relevant as that hadn’t taken into account the fact that Khanna would put the BCCI to shame with his act on March 13 during the India-Australia game.”As anyone can understand the contents of the 2017 email was much before you subjected the BCCI to the embarrassment of March 13, 2019 and it is obvious the context had accordingly changed and the 2017 email was no longer relevant. In any case if indeed the acting Secretary had written something so important on the subject, how is it that you have not responded to this current email on that very subject,” he further wrote.Choudhary finally reminded Khanna that he wasn’t elected as the office bearer and it was only an elevation due to circumstances and that Khanna’s original role of being a Vice President wasn’t even considered to come under the office bearers.”The last election to the BCCI was in March 2015. Four office bearers were elected and you were not one of them. In other words, you had not even been an elected office bearer, unlike the President, Secretary, Joint Secretary and Treausrer as the then constitution did not even consider the five Vice Presidents as office bearers.”And let me tell you such a provision was not an accident. The rule so existed because there were as many as five Vice Presidents, one for each zone, without a countrywide jurisdiction, with little or no functions to perform. You had been elected as one of them, each with limited authority,” he pointed.advertisementAlso Read | Diana Edulji hits out at one-sided ‘IPL trophy’ reportslast_img read more

Do what?!OSU is 2-1 (sort of) after a tricky three-game non-conference schedule, and the Big 12 looks like dog poo so far. So the question today is whether you are more confident, less confident or equally confident in OSU winning the Big 12 as you were when the season started three weeks ago.Poll Q: I am _____ confident OSU can win the Big 12 after three games than/as I was at the start of the season.— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) September 20, 2016last_img read more

Tale of a Mother

first_imgIn the small industrial town of Tinsukia in Assam, a couple of decades ago, in a big joint family of around 50 people, lived a young, feisty girl. The eldest of four children, she had a happy childhood, filled with love and laughter. It was a simpler time and an easy childhood as parents, unlike those of today, did not have a lot of expectations from their children. Left to her own devices, she rode bikes with her brothers, played outdoors with 20 odd cousins every day, sat down to mass meals with them, pursued her studies, and dreamt of becoming a doctor. However, for girls those days, in a quiet little town, the only option was humanities. And then, in the first year of college, she married and moved to Kolkata. That girl is Minu Budhia.

Minu Budhia, a special Needs Mother shared with the audience how her younger daughter Prachi’s ADHD, low IQ, and Bipolar disorder diagnosis had initially shattered her, but ultimately set her on a path of self-discovery. Speaking of the challenges she reiterated the importance of looking beyond stereotypes, not being judgemental and asking for help when one needs it and highlighted the importance of breaking the stigma surrounding mental health with awareness and making mental healthcare easily accessible. Her passion and dream gave birth to CARING MINDS – a Psychological Wellness Centre – her 3rd baby and then ICANFLYY, an Institute for Special Needs. Also Read – Physical therapy better for low back painMinu Budhia strongly echoes “Enable the Able” which is the motto of her life and her organisations. Accepting yourself, as you are, and being okay with it, is key to living a healthy life. And sometimes we need help and guidance to do this. Her entrepreneurial venture, a social initiative in the field of Mental Healthcare, is there to provide this helping hand. Mental illness can make an appearance any stage of one’s life whether childhood, adolescence, adulthood or old age. It may be genetic or may develop after a trauma. The point is, it could happen to anyone and it should not make us a social pariah.last_img read more

Trump says offered to help India Pakistan with mediation on Kashmir

first_imgNew York: US President Donald Trump has said that he offered “arbitration or mediation” on the Kashmir issue to the top leadership of India and Pakistan during separate meetings here and the two nuclear-armed neighbours have to “just work it out”. Trump’s comments came a day after he held talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday and two days after Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan met the US President on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) session. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss account details under automatic exchange framework “I said, ‘Fellas, work it out. Just work it out,'” Trump said in his opening remarks at a news conference on Wednesday after attending the UNGA session. India maintains that Kashmir is a bilateral issue with Pakistan and no third party has any role in it. Prime Minister Modi has also categorically rejected any scope for third party mediation between India and Pakistan on Kashmir. “All the issues between India and Pakistan are of bilateral in nature, and we don’t want to trouble any third country. We can discuss and resolve these issues bilaterally,” Modi said on the sidelines of the G-7 summit in the French city of Biarritz, ahead of his bilateral meeting with Trump last month. Also Read – Trio win Nobel Medicine Prize for work on cells, oxygen While Prime Minister Modi and Trump on Monday mainly focused on issues related to terrorism emanating from Pakistan and the Indo-US bilateral trade, Imran and Trump on Tuesday discussed the Afghan peace process and the Indo-Pak tensions over Kashmir. On Wednesday, Trump said he held “very productive” conversations with the leaders of Pakistan and India. “And with respect to Pakistan and India, we talked about Kashmir. And whatever help I can be, I said – I offered, whether it’s arbitration or mediation, or whatever it has to be. “I’ll do whatever I can. Because they’re at very serious odds right now, and hopefully that’ll get better,” Trump said, offering to mediate on the Kashmir issue for the fourth time in recent weeks amidst fresh Indo-Pak tensions. “You look at the two gentlemen (Modi and Khan) heading those two countries, two good friends of mine. I said, fellows work it out, just work it out. Those are two nuclear countries, gotta work it out,” the US President said, adding that many other nations are achieving stronger ties of fair and reciprocal trade. Asked to comment on Trump’s latest remarks, External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said India position is “very clear”. “I think it has been articulated by the prime minister earlier. It was articulated yesterday (Tuesday) by the foreign secretary so that position remains,” Kumar told reporters at a briefing here. Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale told reporters after the Modi-Trump meeting on Tuesday that the prime minister “made it clear that we are not shying away from talks with Pakistan”. “But for that to happen, we expect some concrete steps to be taken by Pakistan. And we do not find any effort by Pakistan taking those steps,” Gokhale had said. A White House readout of the Trump-Modi meeting said Trump “encouraged” Modi to improve relations with Pakistan and fulfil his promise to better the lives of the Kashmiri people. Gokhale had said during the meeting, Modi explained in detail to Trump the challenges faced by India because of terrorism, especially in Jammu and Kashmir, where 42,000 lives have been lost in the last 30 years due to terrorism. Tensions between the two countries have spiked since India abrogated Article 370 of the Constitution to revoke the special status of Jammu and Kashmir. India’s decision evoked strong reactions from Pakistan, which downgraded diplomatic ties and expelled the Indian ambassador. Pakistan has been trying to internationalise the Kashmir issue after India withdrew the special status of Jammu and Kashmir on August 5, but New Delhi has asserted the abrogation of Article 370 was its “internal matter”.last_img read more

Wazirabad Chandrawal water treatment plants stop operations as ammonia levels rise

first_imgNew Delhi: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday said high ammonia levels, caused by dumping of industrial waste into the Yamuna river in Haryana’s Panipat, has forced Delhi’s Chandrawal and Wazirabad water treatment plants to “stop” operations. Kejriwal, who is also the Delhi Jal Board chairman, said water supply to parts of central and north Delhi may be affected and the DJB was working to improve the situation at the earliest. “High ammonia levels due to industrial waste being dumped into the Yamuna at Panipat has forced Chandrawal and Wazirabad Water Treatment Plants to stop operations,” the chief minister tweeted. Also Read – More good air days in Delhi due to Centre’s steps: Javadekar He said he was monitoring the situation closely and has directed the DJB to ensure “no part of Delhi goes dry, even if it means diverting water from other plants to Wazirabad”. The chief minister said the Haryana government has assured that it would release additional water in the river soon to dilute the ammonia. The DJB said pumping from the Chandrawal water works has been reduced by 25 per cent due to the high ammonia levels in raw water. Supply on Monday morning will be affected. The high levels of ammonia in raw water will affect supply to President Estate, Civil Lines, Karol Bagh, Paharganj, Patel Nagar, Shadipur, Timar Pur Malka Ganj, Azad Market, Rajender Nagar, NDMC area, Ramlila Ground, Delhi gate, Subhash Park, Daryaganj, Gulabi Bagh, Jahangir Puri, APMC, Kewal Park, NDMC and adjoining areas, the DJB said.last_img read more

Diarrhoea unsafe abandonment top causes of 776 children deaths in SAAs RTI

first_imgNew Delhi: Unsafe abandonment — including instances of infants found left in the open — diarrhoea and acute respiratory infections are among the leading causes of death of 776 children in specialised adoption agencies across India over the last three years, government agency CARA has said. Other reasons for the deaths of the children in the age group of 0-6 in SAAs, run both by state governments and NGOs, are pre-term birth complications and congenital anomalies, the Central Adoption Resource Authority (CARA) said in response to an RTI query by PTI. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss account details under automatic exchange frameworkIn July this year, Women and Child Development Minister Smriti Irani said in response to a question in the Lok Sabha that 776 children had died over the last three years in specialised adoption agencies (SAAs). According to data given in reply to PTI’s RTI query, of the 434 SAAs, 355 are run by NGOs and 79 by governments in various states. The deaths were reported from 44 government-run SAAs run and 283 SAAs run by the NGOs, the CARA said. According to an official, the SAAs have 7,074 children, some who have been orphaned or abandoned and some who have families but placed in the care of the adoption institutes. Also Read – Afghan Taliban frees 3 Indian hostages in exchange for 11 top militant leaders: ReportsThe deaths would, therefore, account for 10 per cent of the total number of children in the institutions. The highest, 124 children deaths, at the SAAs between April 1, 2016, to July 8 this year were reported from Uttar Pradesh followed by Bihar at 107 and Maharashtra at 81, according to the RTI reply. In many cases, a senior official said, the children were brought to the SAAs in such a tenuous health condition that their chances of survival were very bleak. “Even if they were brought to the agency in time, they were extremely vulnerable to diseases and could not survive despite treatment,” the official said. A caregiver at a specialised adoption agency in central Delhi added that they have received babies who were found after 48 hours of being abandoned. Once, he said, a two-day-old child was found in a pool of water after a long night of rain in the city. “By the time he was brought in, he had developed severe pneumonia and passed away in a couple of hours,” he said.last_img read more
