This time, with Williamson busy in IPL, he is expected to feature in New Zealand’s plans, especially after his rich exploits against Bangladesh at home. He scored 225 runs in three innings in the ODIs at an average of 75.00 and 107 runs in two innings with an average of 107.00 and a strike rate of 175.40.Lockie Ferguson was not considered as he is continuing to recover from a partial-stress fracture in his back. Colin de Grandhomme, however, was named to the squad after undergoing successful surgery on his right ankle in March. But as he is continuing his rehabilitation, he will need to pass a fitness test at the final pre-tour camp in early May to board the flight to England.Also Read: Allen, Astle help New Zealand beat Bangladesh by 65 runs and clinch T20I series 3-0“Colin’s injury is progressing well and we’re hopeful he will begin running again shortly. We’ll monitor him closely over the next few weeks to ensure he’s on target with where he needs to be in order to be fit to tour,” said Gary Stead, New Zealand’s head coach.Stead said the ICC T20 World Cup in India in October-December was the priority for Ferguson and the selectors didn’t want to jeopardise that by loading him up for Test cricket this early in his recovery. Henry Nicholls, Will Young, Daryl Mitchell and Kyle Jamieson have all been selected for their first Test tour of England after strong form in the home summer.The Kiwis will hold two training camps in early May before departing for England in two groups on May 16 and 17. Players involved in the IPL will be managed on a case by case basis depending on when their team exits the tournament.ENG vs NZ: New Zealand Test Squad for England and WTC Final: Kane Williamson (captain), Tom Blundell, Trent Boult, Doug Bracewell, Devon Conway (WK), Colin de Grandhomme, Jacob Duffy, Matt Henry, Kyle Jamieson, Tom Latham (WK), Daryl Mitchell, Henry Nicholls, Ajaz Patel, Rachin Ravindra, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, Neil Wagner, BJ Watling (WK), Will Young Tokyo Olympics: Deepika Kumari to be sole entry to Tokyo Games as Indian women’s recurve team fails to qualify Previous articleIPL 2021: CSK’s Ravindra Jadeja gears up for IPL 2021 in style; Watch videoNext articleIPL 2021: Mumbai Indians all-rounder Kieron Pollard begins training for IPL 2021 Kunal DhyaniSports Tech enthusiast, he reports on Sports Tech industry and writes on sports products.

The prospects for a second stock market crash look set to remain high over the coming months. Risks such as Brexit, the US election and coronavirus could cause investor sentiment to be very changeable. This could lead to a return to falling prices for UK shares.However, a market decline can bring buying opportunities for long-term investors. Through purchasing those businesses with wide economic moats, low debt and long-term growth potential you could survive a short-term crisis and prosper in the long run.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Using company data in a stock market crashA stock market crash can cause many investors to become worried about their financial prospects. As such, they may become increasingly reliant on emotions when making decisions. This could cloud their judgment and may mean that they miss out on undervalued UK shares that represent long-term buying opportunities.Therefore, using company data to make decisions about where to invest could be a sound move. For example, checking the balance sheets of prospective purchases before buying them will provide guidance as to their financial strength. Companies with low debt and profit that easily covers their interest payments may be better able to survive a short-term crisis. They may also be more capable of using the weaknesses of their rivals to their advantage in building a larger market share.Accessing sound business modelsA stock market crash can also expose weak business models. Previously, companies that are inefficient or that lack the capacity to adapt to changing operating conditions may have been viewed positively by investors. However, companies that have a competitive advantage may be better able to survive a period of weak economic growth.Identifying UK shares with a competitive advantage is very subjective. For example, it can mean they have a strong brand, a large number of loyal customers, or a unique product among other attributes. Buying such companies may reduce your overall risks and lead to more positive returns in the long run as they use a weak operating environment to expand their market presence.Defensive UK sharesA second stock market crash could mean that defensive UK shares become more popular among investors. In the past decade, companies operating in sectors such as tobacco and utilities have been relatively unpopular due to their modest growth rates. However, their solid financial performances in a weak economic environment may attract cautious investors. This could lead to an outperformance of the FTSE 100.Your financial prospects could be improved through buying companies that have defensive business models, sound finances and a competitive advantage at lower prices during a market downturn. They may not offer high returns in the short run, but they could prove to be the best UK shares to hold in a crisis.last_img read more

But we are a big group, a battalion of peace and we can make peace in this county if we make a step together and we listen together,.”Deng is the chairperson of the institution which organized the training, the South Sudan Committee for National Healing, Peace and Reconciliation. It is an independent peace and reconciliation body in South Sudan meant to “build bridges across political and social divides and promote healing and reconciling among all South Sudanese.”Bishop Moses Deng Bol of South Sudan’s Diocese of Wau, who also attended the training, believes that this approach is effective and could be the solution to bringing lasting peace in the region.He told ACNS in an interview: “We believe that this is a very effective approach in bringing peace to South Sudan because the mobilizers will be based in the communities and so they will be listening to their communities’ narratives, which is part of the healing process.”He added, “Since they are based in the communities we hope that they will report anyone who does activities which may disturb peace or provoke conflict.”The Peace Mobilisers represent different groups within the country such as the religious leaders, women’s associations, and youth unions among others. They were selected by the National Committee on Healing Peace and Reconciliation from the 10 states of South Sudan and Abyei Administrative Area and were brought to the town of Yei in the Central Equatorial State for one month to be trained as trainers of other Peace Mobilizers in their communities.They are guided by a newly created and agreed on charter which indicates that members of this group are “peacemakers who do not take any sides and who see all people as equal in the face of God and who also endeavor to build trust and mutual understanding between divided communities, families and individuals.” Youth Minister Lorton, VA Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Sudan & South Sudan Associate Rector Columbus, GA Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Press Release Service Rector Hopkinsville, KYlast_img read more

RSF urges China to rescind decision to expel New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post reporters

first_img June 10, 2021 Find out more News Receive email alerts ChinaUnited StatesAsia – PacificAmericas Condemning abuses Freedom of expressionPredatorsEconomic pressure News Organisation Help by sharing this information Beijing announced on March 18th that it would expel US citizens working in China for The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal and forbid them from reporting in Hong Kong and Macau. The Chinese authorities also required that these media outlets, as well as Time magazine and Voice of America, register details about their staff and operations directly with the government. This decision, that will affect at least 13 journalists, is meant by China as a “reprisal” against the US administration’s decisions earlier this year to reduce the number of Chinese citizens employed by the Chinese state media outlets in the US and to require these media to register as foreign missions.Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on China to immediately revoke these measures that further restrains the international community’s right to information in this critical time of the coronavirus pandemic.“The despotic control of news and information by Beijing had a very negative impact at the starting point of this coronavirus epidemic,” says RSF’s Secretary-General Christophe Deloire, who adds that Chinese president Xi Jinping “ has a huge responsibility in front of all human beings.”“This is a new major attack by Beijing against international press freedom, which the regime wants to portray as a media war in order to legitimize what it is doing,” says RSF’s East Asia Bureau head Cédric Alviani. “The media targeted by China enforce and abide by the principles of ethical journalism—including editorial independence and the verification of facts—while the Chinese state media officially serve as mouthpieces for the Chinese Communist Party.”The restrictions put in place by the US administration, which were announced on March 2nd and entered into force on March 13th, apply to Xinhua News Agency, China Global Television Network, China Radio International, China Daily Distribution Corporation and Hai Tian Development USA, five companies that are notorious for distributing the Beijing regime’s propaganda.In a report titled “China’s Pursuit of a New World Media Order” published last year, RSF revealed China’s strategy to control information beyond its borders, a project that poses a threat to press freedom throughout the world.The United States ranked 48th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index while China itself ranked 177th.
