Rio 2016: USA win men’s 4x200m freestyle relay, Michael Phelps takes 21st gold

first_imgMichael Phelps sat alone, thoroughly exhausted. He put his head in his hands and then motioned at his neck as though he had nothing left to give. (Rio Olympics: Full Coverage)No need. His work was done. He had his 20th and 21st gold medals.Phelps made up for one of the rare losses in his brilliant career by winning the 200-meter butterfly Tuesday night, a victory that sent him climbing into the stands to kiss his 3-month-old son Boomer. An hour later, he returned to take what amounted to nothing more than a triumphant victory lap in anchoring the 4×200 freestyle relay, the crowd’s deafening roar growing louder with every stroke. (Michael Phelps avenges London 2012 defeat, clinches 20th Olympic Gold)”That was probably one of my most challenging doubles,” the 31-year-old Phelps said. “Doing a double like that is a lot harder than it once was.”It was another performance for the ages, but Phelps has done it so many times that nothing else would have been fitting. It came on a night that American teammate Katie Ledecky picked up her second gold of the Rio Olympics on the way to what could be a historic run of her own in the pool. (Defending champion Serena Williams crashes out of Rio Olympics)Phelps now has 25 medals in all, and three more races in Rio to add to his almost unimaginable total. No other Olympian has more than nine golds.”That’s a lot of medals,” Phelps said, shaking his head. “It’s just insane.” (Rio 2016: Games bus carrying journalists hit by gunfire, no casualties)advertisementThe 200 fly was the one he really wanted, and it showed.With challengers all around, Phelps simply wouldn’t be denied. With his head nearly at the wall, he took one more stroke to make sure he got there first, his arms slamming against the timing pad.”Going into the finish I said, ‘If I have to take a half-stroke, I’m going to take a half stroke,'” Phelps said.That split-second decision got him to the wall ahead of everyone else, by a mere four-hundredths of a second.When Phelps saw the “1” by his name, he held up one finger. Then he sat on a lane rope, egging on the roaring crowd at the Olympic Aquatics Center with both hands, before emphatically pumping his fist.Tears welled in his eyes as he listened to the national anthem until one of his buddies from Baltimore cracked him up that shouting out “O” like they do at Camden Yards before Orioles’ games. Then, during the customary stroll around the pool to pose for photographers, Phelps broke ranks and bounded into the stands to plant a kiss on Boomer, the son who symbolizes just how much Phelps’ life has changed since a second drunken-driving arrest two years ago.”I wanted to hold him longer,” Phelps said. “It’s good to see he’s awake. He usually sleeps all the time.”Phelps held off Japan’s Masato Sakai with a time of 1 minute, 53.36 seconds, but that number was of little concern.The only thing that mattered was beating everyone else.”The last 10 meters were not fun,” Phelps said. “My gosh, I thought I was standing still.”Four years ago, Phelps mistimed his finish in the wind-milling stroke he does better than anyone, gliding to the wall a little too long after his final whirl of the arms. That allowed Chad le Clos of South Africa to stunningly win gold in an event that Phelps had dominated for the better part of a decade.Phelps retired after the London Games, so it looked like he wouldn’t get a chance to make up for his defeat. But when he decided about a year later to start competing again, the 200 fly was clearly the title he sought more than any other.”This is the race I really wanted back,” he said.Le Clos was in the final again, thoroughly inspired himself by his mother and father, both battling cancer and in the stands cheering him on.But the South African could only manage fourth this time, also finishing behind bronze medalist Tamas Kenderesi of Hungary.The relay was much less dramatic.Conor Dwyer, Townley Haas and Ryan Lochte went out ahead of Phelps, handing off a commanding lead to the most decorated athlete in Olympic history.Phelps essentially spent the next 100 seconds or so soaking up the cheers. He was only the third-fastest swimmer on his team, but he was a full body length ahead of Britain’s James Guy when he touched in 7:00.66.advertisementThe British claimed silver in 7:03.13, while Japan took the bronze in 7:03.50.Sure, Phelps hogged the spotlight on this night.last_img read more

4 marketing facts for 2012

first_imgClickZ has some excellent marketing trends to share. The whole story is here, but if you don’t have time to read it, I offer these highlights:1. Email is still the best way to reach most people, so focus on building your lists in 2012.2. Consumers are “device indifferent,” meaning they are using many forms of technology. You need to think about how to reach them wherever they are – and that means coordinated outreach across different types of technology, including mobile (phones and tablets).3. Social media has come of age and it requires the same approach – integrated with other forms of outreach.4. Content remains king. If you want people to care, give them great information, stories and pictures. Outreach in any form is ineffective if it’s not engaging!last_img read more

England vs Ireland, Day 2: Ireland believe after bowlers force England collapse

first_imgEngland vs Ireland, Day 2: Ireland believe after bowlers force England collapseOne-Off Test: After 20 wickets fell on the 1st day, Ireland maintained their stronghold by chipping away all day at England batsmen who played some lose shots to provide the tourists with a glimmer of a historic Test win.advertisement India Today Web Desk LondonJuly 25, 2019UPDATED: July 25, 2019 23:20 IST Rain forced an early end to the day’s play at Lord’s (Reuters)HIGHLIGHTSEngland finished 181 runs ahead with 1 wicket left in their 2nd inningsMark Adair picked 3 while Boyd Rankin and Stuart Thomson bagged 2 wickets eachIreland are aiming to achieve their 1st-ever Test winIreland bowlers produced a scintillating performance with the ball after getting just one wicket in the morning session to restrict England to 303/9 before the rain arrived to force the end of play on Day 2 of the one-off Test at Lord’s. Mark Adair (3/66) was the pick of the bowlers with 3 wickets to his name – including the crucial scalp of opposition skipper Joe Root. For England, the only highlight of the day was a fighting century stand between nightwatchman Jack Leach and debutant Jason Roy (72).But after the duo departed falling short of their maiden centuries, it was all gloomy for England as they kept flashing at deliveries going away from them while the Irish bowlers bowled consistent line and lengths. While Moeen Ali was once again snapped by a short ball, wicket-keeper Jonny Bairstow had a match to forget as he bagged a pair for himself.Jack Leach fell eight runs short of a maiden test century as Ireland kept alive their victory hopes on the second day of their historic four-day test on Thursday.The spinner, sent in as nightwatchman for the last over of a manic opening day, played superbly to reach 92 before edging Ireland’s first-day hero Tim Murtagh to Mark Adair in the slips.He had shared in a 145-run partnership with test debutant Jason Roy that had wiped out England’s 122-run first innings deficit after they were bowled out for 85 and then dismissed Ireland for 207 on a crazy opening day.Just when it appeared England were seizing control, however, Roy was clean bowled by Stuart Thompson for 72 and Leach went a few overs later.advertisementJoe Denly was run out for 10 after a terrible mix-up with skipper Joe Root before Jonny Bairstow was dismissed for a duck for the second time in the match, leaving England on 209-5 at tea, a precarious lead of 87.Also Read | Lahore 2nd Asian city to house ICC accredited biomechanics labAlso Read | Sri Lanka target winning farewell for retiring Lasith MalingaFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

UN agency presses for proper safeguards for children being sent from Australia

3 June 2011Australia’s plan to send unaccompanied minors seeking asylum to Malaysia lacks important operating safeguards for children, the United Nations refugee agency said today. The country’s Immigration Minister reportedly announced yesterday that Australia will proceed with a plan to send unaccompanied minors – who had previously arrived by sea from Asia and sought asylum – to Malaysia as part of a wider bilateral agreement between the two nations on the handling of asylum cases.Adrian Edwards, a spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), said that while a draft memorandum of understanding on the issue between Malaysia and Australia had been shared with the agency, it had not been informed about the latest announcement.“We are not able to lend our support to the text as it currently stands because of the absence of the operating protection safeguards we have been calling for,” he said.“UNHCR has always stipulated that one of our specific requirements with regard to the transfers is that protection safeguards are in place to protect vulnerable groups, especially unaccompanied children.” read more

Ian Botham clashes with BBC presenter over hunting agenda

first_imgIan Botham has hit out at the BBC’s hunting “agenda” after clashing with presenter Rachel Burden over his plan to give away meals made from pheasants shot on his estate to feed the poor. The former England cricketer argued with Ms Burden on 5 Live Breakfast on Monday morning after she asked him about animal rights’ campaigners views on grouse shooting. Explaining the plan he said: “There are a lot of people out there who are struggling, and a lot of people out there who can’t get a proper square meal, so our plan is to make 10,000 birds, and pay for the processing and we’d like to produce out of that, you’d have pheasant with vegetables, a casserole, and a partridge curry. “Everybody that buys one of these – for every one that’s bought we will donate one to the homeless.”He added that the birds had a “normal life”. But in response Ms Burden said: “That’s where a lot of people have trouble – with shooting as a sport”.  Ian Botham fishes on the river Teith in Scotland Packham and fellow environmentalist Bill Oddie voiced support for the petition last summer, saying that grouse shooting is to blame for the declining population of rare hen harriers, which they say is being illegally persecuted by landowners because it feeds on grouse chicks. However pro-hunting groups argue that shooting helps preserve moorland and is an important rural industry, and deny that the bird’s declining numbers are down to illegal persecution. Sir Ian is a leading supporter of You Forgot the Birds, a group which is critical of the RSPB and Mr Packham.  Sir Ian replied: “If you don’t look after these things, whether that’s a grouse moor, they disintegrate and they die,” adding: “If you have a better solution [to poverty] I’d be happy to hear it.”  Cheers for all the feedback re @BeefyBotham. All welcome. No agenda.— Rachel Burden (@rachelburden) July 31, 2017 He added: “You must stop listening to people like Chris Packham because their facts are wrong and they were told that when they went to the Houses of Parliament. So do me a favour and actually let’s talk about what we’re talking about.””You came with an agenda. What are you doing for those poor two million people? “Negativity such as your question – it has got nothing to do with grouse shooting – which was thrown out of Parliament, which you failed to mention.”He later retweeted supporters who described Ms Burden as a “silly woman” and said the interview had been a “mean, spiteful interrogation” which had “turned to smug band wagoning”. In response Ms Burden tweeted:  The food donation plan will involve giving the birds, alongside £40,000 to turn them into meals, to the Country Food Trust between October and February.The Trust, launched last year, provides free meals to the needy by distributing its casserole made from pheasant meat to charities and community groups. Last November a petition to ban driven grouse shooting was debated in Parliament after it was signed by 123,077 people.The Government said it had no plans to introduce a ban after MPs said it would be an “epic gamble” for rural communities. center_img Ian Botham fishes on the river Teith in ScotlandCredit:Danny Lawson/PA Wire  Wildlife TV presenter Chris Packham The grouse shooting season begins in August and normally lasts for around four months. Ahead of the debate Sir Ian argued with BBC wildlife presenter Packham on the Today Programme, whom he called an “extremist”.   Wildlife TV presenter Chris PackhamCredit:Jay Williams Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

The death of American scifi

first_imgMy evenings during the school year as a kid were pretty much scripted. I’d get home from school, go mess around with friends, come home for dinner, do homework, and then watch Star Trek on TV. I was into Firefly before most people knew what a Browncoat was, and to this day search the web for a Qualta blade replica that will shift from blade form to gun form. It’s a fascination, a love, and, for some, and obsession.The beauty of science fiction is that you can escape reality long enough to enjoy the adventure. All growing up, I felt like there was always a show on that was worth watching. In college there would often be heated discussions about the “best” sci-fi show on television. So, what happened to the “good old days” of sci-fi on American television? Has the “Golden Age” of televised science fiction ended?It seems like we’ve finally given up on rebooting Star Trek and Stargate. Joss Whedon seems to have given up on television for the moment, and moved on to projects like The Avengers. The closest thing we have to aliens causing trouble for the stars is V, and I don’t even think anyone was aware that the second season aired, much less talked about a third season. The SyFy channel killed Eureka — can anyone explain to me why the WWE is on that channel? Battlestar Galactica was rebooted and put back on the shelf already, and Terra Nova is on its way out the door.Most recent attempts at televised science fiction have failed within a year or two. Heroes, Flash Forward, Dollhouse… none of them seemed to have whatever the networks thought was necessary to keep them alive, despite each being pretty good shows in their own right. So, if sci-fi is going to continue to disappear in the US, where will geeks get their TV fix?The BBC is a powerhouse of sci-fi right now, most of which is brought to the US (often at a delay). Merlin, Being Human, and Doctor Who are all among my “must watch” shows when they are made available. On top of these, the BBC re-imagining of Sherlock Holmes has been a welcome breath of fresh air.BBC America released episodes of the recent seasons of Doctor Who on the same day that they release them in the UK, creating a gap of only a few short hours between the original air time. SyFy has even seen fit to remake Being Human, as a show with the exact same name but with actors that lack a British accent. Merlin is also syndicated on SyFy, but they manage to keep their British charm for this one.It seems that, like the US’ space program, science fiction on TV is getting a serious downgrade. For the first time that I can remember, the US does not really have any shows that compete with those listed above.I, for one, refuse to believe that the genre is on its way out. Instead, the problems seems to be a lack of immersion. Think about shows like Farscape or Andromeda — you are thrown into a world from day one that gives you a clear understanding that your view of the world does not apply in this scenario. You must quickly detach yourself from the “real world” in order to answer the question of “what would I do in this situation?” Of course, the biggest problem with shows like these are the expense. Computer Graphics, massive, incredible stages, and the writers capable of weaving this story into your mind are much more expensive then following around a meter maid with a camera and watching as she gets verbally assaulted by people who don’t want tickets (this is actually a TV show, if you didn’t catch the reference)Hulu and Netflix are both in the process of testing original content on their networks, maybe one of these guys should pick up the sci-fi flag and wave it around a bit. Otherwise, what will the guys from The Big Bang Theory have to talk about each week?last_img read more

Les poissons menacés par la hausse du pouvoir dachat asiatique

first_imgLes poissons menacés par la hausse du pouvoir d’achat asiatiqueLa conférence de l’ONU sur les Océans, qui a réuni des experts du monde entier à Manille jeudi dernier, a fait état de la menace pesant sur les stocks de certains poissons avec la hausse du pouvoir d’achat en Asie. Les besoins en poissons étaient déjà énormes en Asie, ce mets étant très prisé sur ce continent. Mais avec la hausse du pouvoir d’achat, la demande va indéniablement s’intensifier. Les poissons les plus touchés se révèlent être les plus chers, et donc les plus rares. C’est ce dont ont alerté les experts du monde entier réunis jeudi dernier à la conférence de l’ONU sur les Océans tenue à Manille. En effet, ceux-ci ont expliqué que la soudaine prospérité asiatique risquait de mener à court terme à un épuisement des stocks de thons et de mérous. À lire aussiCes 18 animaux méconnus à l’aspect étonnant pourraient disparaître avant vous”L’augmentation de la prospérité, surtout en Asie”, a accru la demande pour des poissons plus chers comme certains types de mérou et de thon, a expliqué Jackie Alder, coordonnatrice de la division des écosystèmes marins et côtiers (MECB) au Programme des Nations unies pour l’environnement (PNUE) citée par l’AFP.  “Il ne fait aucun doute que les changement de mode de vie et les habitudes alimentaires (en Asie) ont un effet sur les ressources”, a souligné pour sa part Jerker Tamelander, responsable des récifs coralliens au PNUE.Par ailleurs, Jackie Alder a tenu à rappeler que la production mondiale de poissons stagnait à 80 millions de tonnes dans les années 1980. Beaucoup de scientifiques estimaient que ce chiffre ne pouvait pas évoluer de façon significative, mais la situation semble prouver qu’ils avaient tort au vu de l’augmentation des besoins, des techniques de pêche parfois douteuses et des quotas internationaux des stocks marins mal définis. La demande est même devenue si forte que les pêcheurs se servent de cyanure pour étourdir et capturer le mérou vivant, a commenté Jerker Tamelander. Cette technique pollue les fonds marins et met ainsi à mal les autres poissons et les coraux. “Il y a une forte mortalité, d’importants coûts de transport, mais les bénéfices sont aussi élevés”, a précisé le spécialiste.

A Guide to the Currency of Westeros

first_img I had the pleasure of meeting Helen earlier this year and getting introduced to Shire Post Mint.

Shire Post is a family operation where each member of the clan has a part in the creation of the coins. Helen and her family’s passion is palpable and now truly tangible.
