Haryana Women and Child Development Minister Kavita Jain on Saturday said that “as a woman” she feels that prohibition should be imposed in the State. She however added that such a move would not work if there was no such ban existed in the neighbouring States. “As a woman I would say prohibition should be imposed,” Ms Jain told reporters in Sonipat on the sidelines of a function. Haryana shares its boundaries with States where there is no prohibition, she said. Prohibition had been imposed in Haryana in 1996 by the Bansi Lal-led Haryana Vikas Party-Bharatiya Janata Party coalition government, but it was lifted by the same regime in 1998.Ms Jain said that she felt that the attempt had failed as liquor was available in the neighbouring States. “Earlier also probably one of the reasons of prohibition failing in Haryana was that liquor was available in neighbouring States. There were instances when people brought liquor (into the State) in buses and through other means,” she said.Ms Jain said habitual drinkers, when they don’t get liquor, turn violent and are ready to spend any amount to procure it. “Then the situation turns more explosive,” she said while talking of demerits of prohibition if people can procure liquor from neighbouring States. She said the SC order banning liquor sale along the highways was a very good thing.
Ajinkya Rahane has been the mainstay of Indian batting line-up in Test cricket for quite a while now and once again he will play a key role during the upcoming packed home season that includes 13 Tests. However, Rahane says he is not looking too far ahead and is only focused on New Zealand series.”I know I have a job at hand but I never set targets beforehand. I believe setting targets takes you too much into future. Looking too far ahead can clutter your mind. Instead I like taking each day as it comes. Right now, the focus will be on New Zealand series,” Rahane told PTI during an interaction. (Ajinkya Rahane and his love affair with foreign shores)Rahane has always emphasised on doing homework against particular oppositions and it would not be any different this time also when New Zealand visit India for a three-Test and five-ODI series, starting September 22.”I always discuss my batting with my childhood coach Praveen Amre. It won’t be any different this time also. Obviously the preparation for each series is slightly different. But obviously you never reveal your strategy before the series starts. The key is to always remain three steps ahead of the opposition,” the 27-year-old Mumbaikar said. (Rahane says he is not greedy about scoring hundreds)’KIWIS HAVE DECENT ATTACK’He termed the New Zealand attack as a good one against whom they cannot afford to be complacent despite the favourable home conditions. “It’s a decent attack. They have Trent Boult, also good spinners like Mitch Santner and Ish Sodhi. We can’t let our guard down.”advertisementTalking about using bats with different weights, Rahane said, “Whether it’s Melbourne or Mumbai, I have never tinkered with weight of my bats. It’s always been same irrespective of bounce in various pitches across the globe.”He scored 243 runs including a century and a half-century in the recently-concluded four-Test series against the West Indies which India won 2-0. “I always strive to improve and I am satisfied with my performance in the Caribbean. I had prepared specially to face the Dukes red ball.”It is different to play red Dukes than kookaburra as the ball seams and swings more than other balls. For that you need to play close to the body and as late as possible. That was my endeavour and I was happy with my execution. It would have been great had we won 3-0 but you can’t control weather,” said Rahane.’KUMBLE’S PASSION UNMATCHED’He agreed that chief coach Anil Kumble’s passion is unmatched that rubs onto his teammates. “He has been phenomenal with his inputs. He has left international cricket for nearly 8 years but nothing seems to have changed. His passion is unmatched. He has an eye for every minute detail. He told me that I am doing well and key to consistency is focussing on routines,” he said.(With PTI inputs)
Quinton de Kock slammed 178 and the second-highest score by a South African in one-day internationals to help beat top-ranked Australia by six wickets in the first of five ODIs on Friday.Opener De Kock’s 11th ODI century was the best innings by a South African against Australia in the 50-over format and second-best ever for the Proteas behind Gary Kirsten’s 188 not out against United Arab Emirates at the 1996 Cricket World Cup.De Kock crunched 11 sixes along with 16 fours to send South Africa to 295-4 at SuperSport Park, overtaking Australia’s 294-9 with more than 13 overs to spare.De Kock’s match-winning performance followed new fast bowler Andile Phehlukwayo’s 4-44, which reined in a fast-starting Australian batting lineup. George Bailey top-scored for Australia with 74.
(Eds: Recasting intro, adding details)Bengaluru, Nov 12 (PTI) A staunch RSS idealogue and long-time BJP member, Union minister Ananth Kumar was the quintessential organisation man who kept Karnataka and the party as the twin focuses of his career.The Parliamentary Affairs minister, who passed away early Monday after battling lung cancer for several months at the age of 59, was the first person to speak in Kannada in the UN in October 2012 and was often regarded as the Delhi face of the Karnataka BJP.Kumar was a six-time member of Parliament from Bangalore South, a constituency that remained his bastion till the very end.Bengaluru’s “most loved” gregarious MP was known for his political adroitness, managing to be in the inner circle of the central leadership of the BJP — be it during the heyday of Atal Bihari Vajpayee or Narendra Modi now. He was born to a middle class Brahmin family on July 22, 1959, in Bengaluru to Narayan Shastri, a railway employee, and Girija N Shastry. His early education began under the guidance of his mother who herself was a graduate.A graduate in Arts and Law, Kumar’s journey in public life began due to his association with the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad, a student organisation of the Sangh Pariwar, which he served in various capacities, including state secretary and national secretary. The strong political instinct was honed early on. Kumar voiced his protest against the then Indira Gandhi government’s imposition of Emergency for which he was sent to jail for about 30 days.advertisementWith his steady political growth, his bond with the Sangh, where he was mentored politically, also grew stronger.Looking to get into mainstream politics, Kumar joined the Bharatiya Janata Party in 1987, going on to take up the responsibilities of state secretary, state president of the Yuva Morcha, general secretary and national secretary. Along with state BJP chief Yeddyurappa, Kumar was among the few party leaders who could be credited for the growth of the BJP in Karnataka. They built the party from scratch, paving the way for the installation of the first ever saffron party government in the South. He was known to have had an often politically hostile relationship with Yeddyurappa and was also accused of meddling too much in Karnataka affairs, when the Lingayat strongman was chief minister of the state. While being the all important member of the BJP’s parliamentary board, Kumar was often regarded as the “Delhi face” of the Karnataka BJP and also for the state government, one who could be depended on to take up issues concerning Karnataka. Kumar began his parliamentary career when he got elected to Lok Sabha in 1996 from Bangalore South. The climb up the political ladder was swift and steady. In 1998, he joined the Vajpayee cabinet when was just 38, then the “youngest” minister in the team. He served as Civil Aviation minister and also Minister for Tourism, Sports, Youth Affairs and Culture, Urban Development and Poverty Alleviation. Kumar, who also held positions in various parliamentary committees, was Union Minister for Parliamentary Affairs and Chemicals and Fertilizers in the Modi-led government after winning the 15th Lok Sabha election from Bangalore South by defeating IT czar Nandan Nilekani. He was widely credited for implementing the neem coated urea scheme and setting up Jan Aushadhi Kendras with focus on affordable quality health care.Never an MLA, Kumar came close to trying his luck to become chief minister when the BJP under his presidency emerged as the single largest party in the 2004 assembly polls with 79 MLAs. But Deve Gowda’s JD(S) decided to support the second largest party, the Congress, which had lost power, to form a coalition government under the leadership of Dharm Singh. Several BJP leaders in Karnataka today, including former BJP state president Prahlad Joshi, owe their political growth to their mentor Kumar. Kumar reportedly nursed chief ministerial ambitions with his proximity to party’s central leadership and building own support base within the party, which threatened Yeddyurappa’s supremacy, resulting in rift between both leaders. Kumar leaves behind his wife Tejaswini and their two daughters, Aishwarya and Vijetha, who were by his side as he breathed his last at the Sri Shankara Cancer Hospital and Research Centre in his Lok Sabha constituency.His family and he were closely associated in the setting up the hospital. Wife Tejaswini is a member of its board of trustees, along with cricket icon Anil Kumble. He was chief patron of Adamya Chetana, an NGO involved in social work which he runs along with his wife in the memory of his mother Girija Shastry, who also died of cancer.

Anaheim (California): Tom Hiddleston’s “Loki” series has found a director in Kate Herron of “Sex Education” fame. The six-episode series will take place after the events of “Avengers: Endgame” and explore a different version of the story, with the God of mischief at its centre. Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige said the series is a “remarkably ambitious” project as he introduced Herron and head writer Micheal Waldron at D23 Expo here. Also Read – I have personal ambitions now: Priyanka”We are taking Loki to an entirely new part of the MCU,” Herron said. “The show is going to explore questions that we all have. Where did Loki go after he picked up Tesseract in ‘Endgame’. Could Loki ever make a friend? Will the sun shine on him again?,” Waldron added. Hiddleston, in a video message, said his character’s journey has just begun. “It is your boundless enthusiasm and support that means Loki still has more stories to tell. It will never stop surprising and delighting me that you think he is cool. This journey that you and I have been on isn’t over yet. In fact, it’s only just begun,” he said. “Loki” series will debut on Disney+ in 2021.

Rabat – Four days after the mysterious disappearance of Saudi journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, Turkish authorities have concluded that he was killed inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.“The initial assessment of the Turkish police is that Mr. Khashoggi has been killed at the consulate of Saudi Arabia in Istanbul. We believe that the murder was premeditated and the body was subsequently moved out of the consulate,” a Turkish official was quoted by Reuters as saying.The prominent Saudi journalist, known for his staunch opposition to many of Saudi Crown Prince Mohamed bin Salman’s domestic and foreign policy decisions, disappeared on Tuesday. He had entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to secure documentation for a forthcoming marriage with a Turkish national. Since Tuesday, Turkish and Saudi authorities have given conflicting accounts about his whereabouts. While Turkish authorities said there was no evidence he left the Saudi consulate, Saudi authorities claimed that he exited the diplomatic mission the same day.Khashoggi has lived in self-imposed exile in the United States for the past year and was a regular contributor to the Washington Post’s opinion section. In his op-eds, he criticized the Saudi crown prince’s foreign policy decisions on Qatar and Canada and the war in Yemen, in addition to his intense crackdown on dissent in the Saudi Arabia.
LOS ANGELES — Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury fought to a split draw Saturday night, with Wilder retaining his WBC heavyweight title after knocking down his British challenger twice.Wilder (40-0-1) floored Fury (27-0-1) in the ninth and 12th rounds, yet Fury clearly outboxed Wilder for large portions of the remainder of their entertaining showdown.Fury looked finished when Wilder put him flat on his back with two minutes left in the fight, but he rose and made it to the bell.Judge Robert Tapper scored the fight 114-112 for Fury, while Alejandro Rochin favoured Wilder 115-111. Judge Phil Edwards and The Associated Press both scored it a 113-113 draw, with Wilder’s knockdowns compensating for Fury’s superior technique.Both men weren’t overly upset by the verdict after a compelling bout in front of a frenzied Hollywood crowd.Greg Beacham, The Associated Press
De l’ADN de cheval retrouvé dans des burgers de supermarchésDe la viande de cheval a été retrouvée dans le bœuf de hamburgers surgelés vendus dans les supermarchés du Royaume-Uni et d’Irlande.Les enseignes Tesco, Iceland, Dunnes Store, Lidl et Aldi ont commercialisé au Royaume-Uni et en Irlande des hamburgers dans lesquels de l’ADN de cheval a été retrouvé, rapporte la BBC. La Food safe authority d’Irlande (FSAI) a identifié l’ADN chevalin dans dix produits sur 27 analysés, tandis que 23 autres références contenaient de l’ADN de porc. Dans les produits vendus chez Tesco, la viande de cheval représentait 29 % de la viande contenue dans le sandwich rapporte 20minutes.fr. La chaîne de supermarchés aurait aussitôt retirés des rayons tous les produits incriminés et les magasins incriminés ont fait de même. Les deux usines irlandaises pointées du doigt se sont immédiatement retournées vers leurs fournisseurs européens.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Le problème n’est pas d’ordre sanitaire mais elle inquiète sur le mode de fabrication des hamburgers. En effet, selon le directeur de la FSAI, Alan Reilly, “s’il y a une explication possible à la présence d’ADN de porc dans ces produits du fait du traitement de la viande de bœuf et de porc dans les mêmes locaux, il n’y a pas d’explication claire quant à la présence d’ADN de cheval dans des produits provenant d’usines qui ne traitent pas de viande de cheval”.En tout cas les consommateurs britanniques, qui ne sont pas amateurs de boucherie chevaline, ont été extrêmement choqués. De même, certains produits censés contenir de la viande de bœuf (lasagnes, par exemple), contiennent du porc ce qui pose un problème aux populations qui n’en mangent pas pour des motifs religieux.

Nick Miotke/Roadshow In addition to a Ram recall affecting some 400,000 trucks, Fiat Chrysler has a second recall covering more than 100,000 vehicles.Chrysler late last week issued a recall for nearly 200,000 examples of the 2017-2019 Chrysler Pacifica minivan. The affected vehicles carry build dates between Oct. 11, 2016 and Nov. 20, 2018. Vehicles built after that date feature an updated component that does not present an issue.The problem stems from the wiring harness. A specific sealer used during the manufacturing process might cause a loose battery ground joint. In the event the connection to ground is only intermittent, the car might occasionally lose power steering or motive force. Obviously, losing systems you’re not expecting to lose can increase the risk of a crash.Chrysler discovered the issue in January after receiving field-study information from 14 vehicles reporting intermittent power steering loss. During the subsequent investigation, FCA’s engineering team found that sealer might be causing the problem, and the automaker decided in early May to initiate a voluntary recall.Thankfully, owners won’t need to wait while their entire wiring harness is replaced. Instead, technicians will inspect the surfaces in question and, if necessary, clean and reassemble the battery ground joint so that it won’t intermittently lose its connection. Anyone who had this fix performed and paid out of pocket will be reimbursed. Dealers and owners should expect to receive recall notifications in late June. 2019 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport loves to hustle 26 Photos Car Industry Honda OdysseyThe feature-rich Honda Odyssey minivan also retains its number-two slot from last year’s list. While the 2019 model doesn’t see any changes from last, it’s still a darn good choice for families on the go with reconfigurable seats, Wi-Fi and an excellent rear-seat entertainment system. The Cabin Watch video system lets parents keep an eye on their little darlings without turning around in their seats, while Cabin Talk amplifies their voice so no yelling is required.The Odyssey is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 rated for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Most trims get a nine-speed automatic but the top Touring and Elite trims now use a 10-speed automatic with stop-start technology. The Honda Odyssey is made in Lincoln, Alabama. 52 Photos 72 Photos 2019 Mazda CX-5 Diesel review: Was it really worth the wait? Share your voice Comments Tags Honda RidgelineAgain keeping the status quo, the Honda Ridgeline maintains third place on the American Made Index. This crossover-that-looks-like-a-truck provides a better ride than a traditional pickup and gets an awesome lockable trunk right in the floor of the bed. And it doesn’t do the truck stuff too badly, either, as it’s able to carry 1,860 pounds of payload and tow 3,500 pounds.The Ridgeline is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 good for 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. That is channeled through a six-speed automatic transmission with available all-wheel drive. It’s built in Lincoln, Alabama. Chrysler,Enlarge ImageIt’s all in a day’s work for the Jeep Cherokee, the most American-made car in 2019. Jeep With high trade tensions looming and increasing talk of tariffs, more and more consumers are looking to buy American. Cars.com has released its annual American Made Index, showcasing companies that use the most American-sourced parts and labor in their vehicles. The results may surprise you.Cars.com analyzed more than 100 US-built vehicles for five key data points: manufacturing location, parts sourcing, US employment, engine sourcing and transmission sourcing. You might think something like the Ford F-150 would top the list, but it drops from its No. 5 spot for 2018 and out of the top 10 completely. Even the first-place holder, the Jeep Cherokee, is a pretty global product. It’s a Jeep, sure, but that brand is part of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, an Italian-owned business.Cars.com surveyed 1,000 people and found that half are concerned about automotive import tariffs, with 41% saying they are unsure if tariffs would make them more likely to buy American. Either way, we’re big fans of all the vehicles on this list. These days, buying American doesn’t necessarily mean sticking with a US-based automaker. 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid: First hybrid minivan wins on fuel economy GMC CanyonIf you’re looking for a slightly fancier version of the Colorado that’s more focused on luxe than dirt, check out the GMC Canyon. The top Denali trim gets standard heated and ventilated front seats as well as a heated steering wheel. Maximum payload capability is 1,665 pounds while max towing is a fairly healthy 7,600 pounds.The Canyon is available with the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, 3.6-liter V6 or 2.8-liter diesel as the Chevrolet Colorado. It’s also built in Wentzville, Missouri.

Refreshed for 2019, the compact crossover now features more tech, better cargo space and a slightly tweaked look. It’s available in no fewer the nine trims, including the off-road specific Trailhawk and a fancy-pants Trailhawk Elite.For 2019, the Cherokee gets a new 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine with 270 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, though naturally aspirated I4 and V6 choices are also available. Regardless of engine, a nine-speed automatic transmission gets the power to the pavement — or dirt as the case may be. The Cherokee is made in Belvidere, Illinois. 2 Chevrolet ColoradoMaking its debut in the top 10 is the Chevrolet Colorado. Shown here in the tough ZR2 Bison off-road spec, the Chevy Colorado is an excellent truck and one of the two midsize pickups you can get with a diesel engine. Adding to the ZR2’s two-inch lift and front and rear locking differentials, the Bison gets beefier skid plates (trust me, that’s a good thing), steel bumpers and integrated recovery points. Heck, you can even get a snorkel.Base models get a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with a six-speed manual transmission, but a more popular choice is the 3.6-liter V6 gas engine with 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the 2.8-liter diesel pumps out 186 horsepower and a delicious 369 pound-feet of twist and is mated to a six-speed automatic. The Chevy Colorado is built in Wentzville, Missouri. 2019 Honda Passport: A well-rounded midsize offering Honda PilotDropping down to seventh place for 2019 is the Honda Pilot. Like its two-row Passport sibling, the three-row Pilot offers parent-focused technology like Cabin Talk as well as myriad standard driver-assistance features through the Honda Sensing tech suite. Honda’s largest crossover offers up nearly 84 cubic feet of cargo space. Honda’s 3.5-liter V6 engine shows up again, making a serviceable 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Touring and Elite trims get a nine-speed automatic transmission while lower trims have to make do with a six-speed auto. The Honda Pilot is made in Lincoln, Alabama. Honda PassportThe Honda Passport is a new (well, reborn) entry to both the Honda lineup and the American Made Index. This midsize crossover comes to the fray with great driving dynamics and plenty of tech like the standard Honda Sensing suite of active safety features. An available 8-inch touchscreen gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as a Wi-Fi hotspot.Under the hood is the stalwart 3.5-liter V6 producing 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. However unlike the Ridgeline, the Passport sends that power through a nine-speed automatic transmission. Having said that, just like the Ridgeline, this is the only powertrain available. The Honda Passport is built in Lincoln, Alabama. 2019 Jeep Cherokee can handle the rough stuff 10 Photos 2019 Honda Pilot Elite: A smoother, tech-rich crossover SUV 2019 Acura MDX adds new features and an A-Spec model 18 Photos 2019 Honda Odyssey offers plenty of room and features for families Recalls Chrysler 71 Photos Our long-term 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is ready for a year of hard work 2019 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison: A tougher off-roader Acura RDXThe third-generation Acura RDX squeaks into the top ten list with larger proportions, plenty of interior space and better handling than its predecessor. Forward collision warning with collision mitigation braking, adaptive cruise control that works even in low-speed traffic, lane-keeping steering assist and road departure mitigation are all standard across the board. Like its MDX counterpart, the RDX is available with the A-Spec styling package.The RDX sports a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine. Output is stated at 273 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, and it’s mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. The new RDX is built in East Liberty, Ohio. 2019 GMC Canyon: A fancier Colorado Chevrolet CorvetteMoving up from the 10th-place slot last year is the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette. While we’ve all been ogling the new mid-engine Corvette, it’s easy to forget what a performance bargain the current-generation ‘Vette is. From the base trim to the Grand Sport to the bonkers ZR1, the Corvette is an American icon.My preference is for the Grand Sport, which strikes a perfect balance between everyday drivability and canyon-carving performance. The 6.2-liter V8 puts out 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque. You can get it with a seven-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission, but the kicker is the borrowed chassis and aero parts from the beefier Z06. Like I said, perfect balance.
