first_imgVIJAYAWADA, India, (CMC): West Indies Women will undergo their first training session here today as they kick off preparation for their limited overs series against India Women bowling off here on Thursday. The Windies side touched down at the Gannavaram airport in the coastal state of Andhra Pradesh yesterday after arriving in India on Saturday from the Caribbean. West Indies Women will practice at the Mulapadu playfield – located 12 miles outside Vijayawada – which will also be the venue for the six-game limited overs series. The Windies clash with India Women in three one-day internationals (ODI) – all designated ICC Championship status – from November 10-16 and will follow up with three Twenty20 internationals from November 18-22. West Indies Women are currently ranked third in the championship on 22 points, one behind the second-placed England Women and eight adrift of leaders Australia Women. India lie sixth on 13 points. The top-four in the championship at its completion will earn automatic qualification for next year’s ICC Women’s 50-overs World Cup in England. West Indies, who are coming off a 3-2 loss to England Women in a five-match series in the Caribbean last month, will be led once again by the prolific Stafanie Taylor, while stroke-maker Mithali Raj takes charge of the Indian unit for the ODIs. Harmanpreet Kaur will take over from Raj for the T20 series.last_img read more

Game’s up for cellphone thieves

first_img14 April 2005A huge blow has been struck against cellphone theft in South Africa with the signing of an agreement between the country’s cellular service providers, Business Against Crime and the SA Police Service that will render all reported stolen cellphones useless.The agreement by Cell C, MTN and Vodacom to blacklist stolen, lost and damaged cellphones will both help stamp out cellphone theft and curtail the use of cellphones in criminal activities.From now on, a cellphone reported stolen will not be able to make or receive calls, even with a different SIM card. Criminals will also no longer be able to change the identity of a stolen handset by altering its unique 15-digit IMEI (international mobile equipment identity) number.Where a serious crime has been committed using a cellphone, the police and the service provider will work together in tracing the phone and user.National Police Commissioner Jackie Selebi told journalists in Pretoria on Wednesday that combating cellphone theft required an integrated approach.“The initiative will stop organised crime syndicates in their tracks and will render stolen, lost and damaged cellphones inactive in the hands of criminals”, Selebi said.Selebi warned that the police would also be targeting pawnshops dealing in stolen cellphones, saying they would be required to point out the sources of their phones.He added that the police could now request that a particular cellphone not be blacklisted in order to facilitate ongoing investigations.How to blacklist your phoneNotify your service provider of the loss or theft:Cell C: phone 140 or 084 140 from any other network.MTN: phone 173 (pay-as-you-go users), 808 (contract subscribers) or 083 1173 / 1808 from any other network.Vodacom: phone 111 or 082 111 from a landline.After verifying your particulars, your service provider will blacklist your phone and provide you with a blacklisting reference number.You must then report the loss or theft to the police, providing them with the blacklisting number.SouthAfrica.info reporterlast_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, January 9, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Drier weather moves in behind the front for today, tomorrow and Friday. We expect a mix of clouds and sun and colder temps, but generally, we still stay near normal on temperatures. That just will feel significantly colder than what we just got done with to start this week Models still are all over the place for Saturday, but we are going to keep snow in our thoughts over most of the state. Right now, we see snow moving into far western Indiana and NW Indiana overnight Friday night, and that should put our starting point here in Ohio around sunrise or even mid morning on Saturday. From there, snow lingers through Sunday. Combined, we could be looking at 1-3 inches in many areas, and some 4 inch totals cant be ruled out. The map at right shows some guidance, but we will not be putting out our official snow totals until Friday morning, as track is just too much of a variable at this time. We will be keeping an eye on south central Ohio, near the River, where we do have some minor concern about a mix of rain and wet snow , or even some freezing rain. However, freezing temps make it almost to the Ohio river, so snow is the most likely precipitation type at this time for 90% of the state. Usually, it is a very fine line from these kinds of events going rain/freezing rain or moderate to heavy snow…so stay tuned for updates on southern Ohio. Dry weather returns for the first half of next week. High pressure dominates on Monday. As it moves off to the east, south winds should redevelop and moderate temperatures by midweek. This south flow will also come ahead of our next system, which arrives on Thursday. Temps moderate just enough to allow for a mixed bag of precipitation through the day. We look for a rain-sleet-snow mix across the state. The good news is, that liquid equivalent precipitation will be limited to a few hundredths to .3” over 80% of the state. The bad news is, we have no clue as to what type will fall where, except the southern third of the state should lean mostly toward rain. This event will come down to track, and where the cold air stays stubborn. Friday goes dry again to finish next week. There is still some rain to start the extended 11-16 day forecast period, but right now it looks like it may be trending a bit farther south. We will dial coverage back to about 60% of the state right now, because there likely will be some areas that get missed, but we are not waving the all clear flag yet. The best moisture is in for Saturday the 19th. There still is the potential for that event to end as snow, as cold air blasts in behind.  From there we remain cold with snow and flurries possible for the 22nd – 23rd – 24th. We become very cold through that period and should see our first foray in a while to well below normal temperature levels.last_img read more
