not be too quick to punish players who take longer to prepare between points the 31-year-old said after receiving a penalty for slow play during his French Open fourth round victory on Sunday The nine-times champion beat fellow Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut to reach the last eight but was twice warned by umpire Carlos Ramos for slow play before being docked a serve after beaching the mandated 25-second limit between points “If you want to play well you have to let players breathe a little We’re not machines that cannot think That’s my viewpoint” Nadal told reporters “What else can I say… But this umpire is I think trying in a certain way to look for my faults my errors” The 14-times grand slam champion believes that umpires should focus on the match rather than the time elapsed “Theoretically the umpires are here to analyse the match and they are not here to use the stopwatch otherwise we should have a stopwatch on the court” Nadal added “That’s the whole point Some dictate things or give their calls in a certain way Other umpires have different styles” Nadal next faces Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta in the quarter-finals and remains on course to win the competition for a

the year 2014 that National Geographic Explorers-in-Residence and wildlife conservationists Beverly and Dereck Joubert came across the skulls of two male elephants with their ivory intact in Selinda Spillway a river linked to the Okavango Delta in Botswana Though the two were sad that such magnificent beasts were no longer alive the presence of their tusks meant that they hadn’t met their end due to poaching which is a major threat faced by elephants across the world especially in Africa This discovery encouraged them to travel down the Spillway by a canoe and trace the life of the two male elephants and understand the essence of the largest and one of the most intelligent mammals on earth Their 50-minute-documentary Soul of the Elephant which was screened at the fourth edition of Woodpecker International Film Festival in New Delhi captures this quest The same has won the award for Best Wildlife Film at the New York Wild Film Festival this year and was officially selected as the Best Feature documentary at the Beijing Film Festival “Elephants share many of our traits They have the ability to use sounds to communicate in what can only be called a language and show signs of empathy and altruism Most animals live in the present but elephants have memory and use it to forecast where they will go in the future just like we do What they don’t have is our special capacity to kill for fun to be cruel or evil” says 60-year-old Dereck who lives with with Beverly 59 in Duba Plains Okavango Delta They made the documentary over a period of two years The struggle of a calf to stand moments after its birth while its mother encourages it the panic which the elephant herd goes through when a little one is lost in the overflowing river and the sadness when a herd encounters the skull of a matriarch are some moments captured by the conservationist duo in their camera Capturing these moments however wasn’t an easy task The couple had to stay out in the wild for weeks managing their supplies on their own Also initially the elephants would charge at them around every bend in the river However by constantly following the herds they were finally able to win their trust and shoot the documentary The couple winners of eight Emmy awards also made the film because they wanted people to understand what exactly they were losing when an elephant is poached for ivory “To understand the value of elephants alive rather than dead is our job” says Dereck who feels that destruction of ivory by burning it sends out a strong message to the ivory dealers that tusks are not commodities for sale He also stresses on the importance of the community to understand the need to connect and protect these creatures For their next the duo is working on the film Soul of the Cat

Published: May 11 2016 1:55 am Activists of Bhumkaal Sangathan an organisation spearheading an anti-Naxal movement in Gadchiroli demanded building of bridges and laying of roads Express Related News ACTIVISTS of Bhumkaal Sangathan an organisation spearheading an anti-Naxal movement in Gadchiroli Tuesday took the gauntlet right into the Naxal heartland by organising a “pro-development” rally at Nelgonda village in the sensitive Bhamragarh tehsil of Gadchiroli district About a dozen-odd activists led by the organisation’s co-convener Arvind Sovni made a forceful demand for laying roads and bridges in the remote parts of the district criss-crossed by many big perennial rivers and nullahs to facilitate contact and communication of tribals with the outside world Share This Article Related Article Speaking on the occasion activist Shyam Pandhripande called upon the tribals to stand up for the projects of development to fetch the benefits they have long been deprived of “Nobody can stop development in democracy when people unitedly come forward The Naxals should drop their opposition to projects like bridges and roads since it would continue to keep the local Madia people devoid of any contact with the outside world” Pandhripande said The rally was also attended by K Madhukar Rao one of the original authors of Salwa Judum movement in Chhattisgarh Rao said “If Dandakaranya is 100 years behind the rest of the world today it is only because of Naxals The tribals need to understand that their development won’t be possible as long as Naxals are there The sooner do they realise this the better it is for the cause of their development” Rao is one of the last-surviving Salwa Judum leaders who came out unscathed from many attempts on his life Arvind Sovni narrated the plight of tribals in the absence of connecting roads and bridges He read out a long list of bridges needed on the various rivers and streams flowing through the area Asked if he had any proposed bridges on mind which are not happening due to Naxal opposition Sovni told The Indian Express “Not really We are stressing generally on the need for many such roads and bridges” Further asked what then was the point in organising the rally Sovni said “It was basically to make the local people realise what they deserved but were being deprived of by the Naxals and to inspire them into standing up against Naxals to demand such development projects” Sovni pointed out that Naxal opposition is known to have stalled many such projects in Gadchiroli and has even claimed lives of those who championed the cause “Bhamragarh Congress president Malu Kopa Bogami was killed by Naxals precisely for this reason They had exploded a wooden bridge he had built in the interiors of Lahiri to facilitate connectivity of remote villages with Bhamragarh The Naxals had also killed PWD engineer Sankaran who had dared build a bridge in Etapalli tehsil” Bhumkaal Sangathan however had opposed the iron-ore mining projects in Etapalli tehsil of the district Asked if and why he considered mining as “anti-people” and not development Sovni said “We are opposing it because it is being done in a non-transparent manner with the local stakeholder population not being taken into confidence” Sovni and his fellow activists had organised a shodhyatra (search procession) in the interiors of Gadchiroli about a couple of years ago to gauge the people’s pulse on the issues of development For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Reuters | Tokyo | Published: January 24 2017 5:54 pm The Kasumigaseki Country Club a private club in neighbouring Saitama prefecture lets women play Monday through Saturday but bars them from becoming full members (Source: Reuters) Top News A Japanese nonprofit group has demanded the golf tournament of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics be shifted from the Kasumigaseki Country Club which does not accept women as full members The Japan Golf Council unaffiliated with the sport’s domestic governing body the Japan Golf Association — said on Tuesday that it had sent a letter to International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach proposing an alternative venue The membership policy “is quite contrary to the spirit of the Olympic Games” said Eiko Ohya chairwoman of the council The Kasumigaseki Country Club a private club in neighbouring Saitama prefecture lets women play Monday through Saturday but bars them from becoming full members and from playing on Sundays The council has not received a response from the IOC but feels it is making headway after Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike recently criticised the policy The council wants the venue to be moved to Wakasu Golf Links a public course on Tokyo Bay located much closer to the Olympic Village Beyond the membership issue the council believes Wakasu would be more cost-effective due to its proximity to central Tokyo and have greater legacy value for the people because it is a public course The uproar adds to a list of troubles for Japanese organisers who had recently been considering moving three other venues because of soaring costs before sticking to their planned locations at a lower price In a statement the Tokyo 2020 organising committee noted that Kasumigaseki had hosted various national competitions including the 1999 Japan Women’s Open and that it fully met the requirements for hosting Olympic-level golf competitions But the committee added that it “would continue studying the club owner’s policy on the membership eligibility and responses to the public discussion” Hiroshi Imaizumi general manager at the Kasumigaseki Country Club told Reuters that the club had about 215 female Monday-Saturday members He said the club was not considering changing its membership system now but would think about it if it were contacted by the IOC Several notable country clubs have changed their policies to allow female members in recent years In 2014
