New Delhi: Former Pakistan skipper Inzamam-ul-Haq is regarded as one of the best batsmen of his generation with a shy, soft-spoken personality. He mostly did his talking with the willow and hardly got into heated, on-field bust-ups. However, Inzamam once lost his cool during a match between India and Pakistan in Sahara Cup. Inzamam in 1997 had nearly beaten up a fan with a bat.During India vs Pakistan in 1997 Sahara Cup, Shiv Kumar Thind, a Canada-based Indian fan constantly sledged Inzamam-ul-Haq from the stands. Thind, who carried a megaphone, was backed up by a bunch of Indian supporters during the 2nd ODI at the Toronto Cricket, Skating and Curling Club.ALSO READ: Asia Cup 2018: India vs Pakistan | Check out these rivalry stats”O mote, sidha khara ho [O fatty, stand straight], mota aaloo, sara alloo [fat potato, rotten potato],” he repeatedly sledged the Pakistani.However, Inzy ignored the chants initially but lost his cool as he jumped the fence with a bat in an attempt to attack Thind.ALSO READ: Moeen Ali reveals Aussie cricketer called him ‘Osama’ during Ashes Recently, Inzamam-ul-Haq made the headlines after he was alleged of selecting his son in the Pakistan junior cricket team.

People like Charlize Theron and Trevor Noah have had incredible success in the US. They are the leaders of a growing pack: from writers to artists, there are other South Africans who are also leaving an impression through their work. The Reactive, by South African author Masande Ntshanga, will be published in the US, and artist Zanele Muholi [pic] has an exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum. (Image: Masande Ntshanga website and Lipstick Alley)• The South African who dresses the walkers • Watch: Trevor Noah, new host of the Daily Show • South African artists draw international interest • Comrades legends speak about their memorable races • Jazz trumpets the notes of freedom Priya PitamberWhen you think of South Africans making their names in the US, Charlize Theron, the Oscar-winning actress, and Trevor Noah, the comedian and imminent host of The Daily Show after Jon Stewart’s departure, come to mind.But there are also other South Africans making their mark abroad in various creative fields.Zanele MuholiArtist Zanele Muholi prefers to be called a “visual activist” because she combines her skills and talent in video and photography with human rights activism. She wants to increase awareness of the plight of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) communities in South Africa.Her exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum in New York, Isibonelo/Evidence, closes on 1 November. Isibonelo means “example” in Muholi’s mother tongue, isiZulu.“The exhibition presents 87 works created between 2007 and 2014,” notes the museum, “including Muholi’s Faces and Phases portrait series, which uses first-hand accounts to speak to the experience of living in a country that constitutionally protects the rights of LGBTI people but often fails to defend them from targeted violence.”The New Yorker magazine described it as a major show in the country.“I’m one of us,” Muholi said. “I’m not observing from a distance. It’s not just me who is here at the museum; we are here. My photographs portray people who are participating in making their own history.”Muholi grew up in the township of Umlazi, in Durban, in KwaZulu-Natal. In 2006, she took a photograph of her friend Busi Sigasa. Sigasa was raped – by male friends who wanted to cure her of her of being a lesbian, in what is often termed “corrective rape” in South Africa – and she contracted HIV. She died less than a year after the photo was taken. “In the past eight years, more than two hundred and fifty people have gazed frankly, shyly, proudly, defiantly at Muholi’s camera,” noted The New Yorker.The online art collection resource, Artsy, describes Muholi’s portraits as sensitive and a challenge to the stigma surrounding the South African LGBTI community. It says her work “debunks the common rhetoric that homosexuality is un-African, and addresses the preponderance of hate crimes against homosexuals in her native country”.Masande Ntshanga Masande Ntshanga’s debut novel has been picked up by an American publishing house to be published in US. (Images: Random House Struik)On his website, author Masande Ntshanga wrote that he was pleased when his novel, The Reactive, was picked for publication in US by publishing house, Two Dollar Radio. “They’ve also optioned the film rights,” he wrote. He told Eastern Cape daily newspaper The Daily Despatch that he had admired books from the publisher.Ntshanga’s debut novel tells the story of three friends who are in the business of selling antiretrovirals (ARVs) illegally. The main protagonist, Lindanathi, carries a guilty burden after his brother passes away. The Reactive’s themes are family, secrecy, chemical abuse and redemption.Two Dollar Radio’s acquiring editor, Eric Obenauf, has nothing but praise for the novel. “I loved the energy, the thrust of the prose, the voice, the descriptions, and the emotional gut-punch of the story,” he said.Ntshanga told literary website Aerodrome he always had a restless imagination. “From a young age, I had a strong interest in creating things, which was mostly in the form of reproducing the images around me,” he said of his drawings.“It was only when a friend of mine and I started composing comics to curb our boredom in primary school, that I got introduced to narrative and its power to reform and recast reality.”He completed his Master’s degree in creative writing at the University of Cape Town, which he said was instrumental in his growth as a writer. “I got to meet people who helped me along with my writing, as well as providing me with a period of focused reading.”Ntshanga has been shortlisted for the University of Johannesburg debut prize and the 2015 Sunday Times Barry Ronge fiction prize. His short story Space won the PEN International New Voices Award and has been nominated for the 2015 Caine Prize.“In terms of recognition, though, I feel like we’re at the point where different parts of the world are starting to pay attention to contemporary South African writing, which is a good development,” he said.
<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>Norwegian Cruise Line’s latest newbuilding, the Norwegian Bliss, was floated out on Saturday, February 17 from the covered building dock at the Papenburg-based MeyerWerft yard in Germany.The mega cruise ship has been berthed at the shipyard’s outfitting pier to be fitted with its funnel.The the 167,800 gross ton ship will remain in the shipyard port until its passage through the river Ems up to the North Sea, which is scheduled for the second weekend in March.In the meantime, further outfitting work will continue together with testing and acceptance procedures by the ship owners.At the same time, the approx. 1,600 members of the crew will start their training on board, as the cruise ship will be welcoming its first guests mid-April 2018 straight after delivery.Norwegian Bliss is the third ship in the line’s Breakaway-Plus class and it will have the capacity to accommodate 4,000 guests.The ship features a two-level go-cart racing track spanning around 1000 feet, making it the largest race track at sea. Among other amenities of the ship are a laser-tag course, a high-end barbecue venue, a water slide that sends riders out over the ocean.During its inaugural summer 2018 season, Norwegian Bliss will sail weekly seven-day Alaska cruises each Saturday from the recently expanded Pier 66 Cruise Terminal in Seattle. The ship’s itinerary will feature calls in Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway and Victoria, British Columbia, along with scenic glacier cruising.However, the very floating out procedure required several maneuvers to be carried out at the crowded yard.Namely, in order for Norwegian Bliss to be able to berth at the out-fitting pier, the first floating section of the AIDAnova that was moored there was moved to another berth in the shipyard port.The second floating part of the ship that was also in the building dock II in front of the Norwegian Bliss had to leave the dock already on February 16 to berth in the shipyard port.After Norwegian Bliss has vacated the building dock II, the two floating parts of the AIDAnova will be maneuvered back into the dock for work to continue.Image & Video Courtesy: Inseelvideo
PORTLAND, Ore. — Federal officials said Tuesday they are increasing catch limits for several species of West Coast groundfish that were severely depleted more than a dozen years ago, posing a threat to the commercial and sports fishing industries.Limits for yelloweye rockfish will more than double, while substantial increases will be allowed for California scorpionfish, bocaccio and Pacific Ocean perch, the National Marine Fisheries Service said.Those species have recovered enough to allow for the greatest expansion of a West Coast fishery in years. The formal announcement of the revised catch limits will be published Wednesday and the changes go into effect on Jan. 1, the first day of the new fishing season.Fishing income in California, Oregon and Washington could increase $60 million because of the changes, with the potential for 900 new jobs and at least 200,000 more angler trips a year, according to a preliminary report.“It’ll actually allow us to fish,” said Tom Marking, a recreational fisherman from Eureka, California.“Right now, there are a lot of places you just avoid because they’re known as yelloweye hot spots. You just stay away from them. If they allow us to go to 30 fathoms or 40 fathoms or all depths, it’ll allow the fleet to spread out.”Between 1999 and 2002, nine West Coast groundfish stocks were declared overfished as surveys documented declining numbers.Because more than 90 total groundfish species share the same habitat, anglers fishing for a permitted species risked also catching restricted fish and exceeding the overall limit — a mistake that could mean an end to the fishing season for that particular species.The limits devastated the fishing industry along the West Coast. Many businesses went under and tensions between the industry and federal regulators ran high for years.“Back then, one boat could catch all the quota for one species in one day,” said Jason Cope, a research fisheries biologist at the National Marine Fisheries Service. “There was a lot of avoidance, a lot of places you couldn’t go and probably a lot of paranoia. It was a lot of kind of walking on eggshells.”Improved population numbers mean there’s now a buffer for such mistakes and anglers can go to places they haven’t fished in years without as much worry, he said.Key to these changes is the recovery of the yelloweye rockfish, one of several species of rock fish that were in trouble just 15 years ago.The combined annual catch limit for the yelloweye will increase from 20 metric tons to 48 metric tons in 2019, although regulators could begin to make adjustments to fishing restrictions when the catch approaches 39 metric tons to allow room for error.Anglers will be able to fish at greater depths and in locations that were previously off-limits. One immediate effect will see fewer fishing boats crowded near the shore where anglers were less likely to net the overfished species.Several other species of groundfish have already recovered to levels that have allowed greater catch limits. Those species include petrale sole, widow rockfish and canary rockfish.There are more than 65 species of rockfish off the West Coast from Alaska to California. Some types can live up 150 to 200 years, Cope said, and they give live birth.John Holloway, a member of the Pacific Fisheries Management Council, which recommended the changes, said the increased catch limit will be transformative for the industry.“This will basically affect all the fishing sectors to some degree or another,” he said. “Every fishing sector … runs up against yellow eye rockfish, including the trawl fleets and all that.”___Follow Gillian Flaccus on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/gflaccusGillian Flaccus, The Associated Press
PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. – Northern Health has issued a bulletin to remind residents about precautions they need to take if they encounter blue-green algae when they head out for a swim in their favourite lake.The health authority said that with temperatures getting warmer during the summer months blooms of cyanobacteria, or blue-green algae, may appear in lakes across Northern B.C. Blue-green algae are naturally occurring and can look like scum, grass clippings, fuzz or globs on the surface of the water. The blooms can be blue-green, greenish-brown, brown, or pinkish-red, and often smell musty or grassy.People who come in contact with visible blue-green algae, or who ingest water containing blue-green algae, may experience skin irritation, a rash, a sore throat, sore red eyes, swollen lips, and potentially develop a fever, nausea and vomiting, or diarrhea. Symptoms usually appear within one to three hours and resolve in one to two days. Residents living near the shores of lakes, as well as visitors and those making day-use of lakes, are advised to take the following precautions:Avoid all contact with blue-green algae blooms. If contact occurs, wash with tap water as soon as possible.Do not swim or wade (or allow your pets to swim or wade) in any areas where blue-green algae are visible.As a reminder, Northern Health recommends that visitors and residents do not drink or cook with untreated water directly from any lake at any time. Boiling lake water will not remove the toxins produced by blue-green algae.An alternate source of drinking water should also be provided for pets and livestock. Pet owners should be wary of allowing pets to walk off-leash where they may be able to drink lake water – illnesses are a common outcome.Anyone who suspects a problem related to blue-green algae can connect with the Ministry of Environment at [email protected] If you require further information on health concerns, please call Environmental Health at 250-565-2150.

The ongoing exhibition of the works of artist Jyoti Tyagi are depictions of the artist’s inward transformation through her art. Thus, the process of art in her case is not restricted to mechanical applications of the tenets of art making but to a transfiguration of her forms into the language of the spirit and the soul.The art show will go on until March 17, at Rabindra Bhawan, Lalit Kala Akademi. While the spiritual process is ongoing as an undercurrent, what one witness on display are elements of the organic life process visible through her myriad feminine forms, entwined, uplifted, free-flowing and sitting in deep meditation. “These elements are going through an organic life process that brings about a metabolic change in our soul. It steers us towards righteousness and teaches us how to remain balanced, satisfied and centered, in the hustle of life,” comments the artist. Also Read – An income drop can harm brainHaving made it her mission to express her inner calling, this artist has used the feminine form as her leit motif. These are then displayed in variable settings, visible through the elements of bhūmi (earth), jala (water), agni (fire), marut, (air or wind) and akash (ether). Incidentally, what she has left unsaid but distinct in her works is her close adherence to the Vedic principle of vyom or space, by making her central form distinct and the surrounds a pristine space, leaving the viewer unrestricted viewing opportunities. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma AwardLike a humble ‘student’ of her Muse, this art maker draws her inspiration from nature, where she is especially influenced by ancient tree forms and sinuous branches that seem to mirror femininity in their contours. Also, the ocean depths and the inner limits of a candle are her chosen identities. Her message, therefore, conveys the vital principle of integration that governs nature and our lives. With a grounded philosophy, a strong figurative form and a choice of deep tones of the colour palette, this exhibition brings about a ‘sangam’ of thought, feeling and execution, into a perfect blend.
