After another substandard batting performance produced both a below-par score and a dressing down from coach, Michael Di Venuto, the champions faced the prospect of their season simply drifting away. But Surrey’s seamers fought hard to keep the deficit to a manageable 36 and the batsmen adopted a positive approach in sultry, swingy conditions. Five men made scores between Rory Burns’s 34 (an unfortunate LBW decision) and Mark Stoneman’s 71, and that was enough to set the visitors a tricky 290. Gareth Batty justified his inclusion in front of the highly rated Amar Virdi with four wickets and Surrey had their first win of the season – and a mid-table spot in Division One.Ball three: Marnus Labuschagne a handy man to have aroundGlamorgan used their extra match to leapfrog Lancashire to the top of Division Two with a fine win over neighbours Gloucestershire. With the home side 127-0, things weren’t looking good for the Welsh county, but captain David Lloyd knew that, if his bowlers could keep him in the game, he had the form batsman of the season to hold his team’s responses together. Twenty wickets for the concession of just 347 more runs put Glamorgan in the game and that man, Marnus Labuschagne, was at the crease while 290 of them were knocked off across the two innings. The Australian has 851 runs this season at 65, with Gary Ballance the next most prolific batsman in the country with 681.Ball four: Happy couples enjoy a visit to Brighton (well, Hove)Sussex missed their chance for a little leapfrogging of their own as they were outplayed at home by Durham. The game boiled down to two big partnerships for Durham, Cameron Bancroft and Ned Eckersley contributing 282 for the sixth wicket in the first innings of 384, and Alex Lees and Gareth Harte piling up 220 in the second innings of 284-3 declared. Sussex only had a draw to play for by then, but Ben Raine’s 6-27 and Chris Rushworth’s 4-44 sent the points up north after a happy trip to the south coast.Ball five: Coles burning bright again Share on LinkedIn Since you’re here… The loss of a day’s play forced Northamptonshire and Leicestershire into a stalemate at Wantage Road, but it was nice to note the name of Matt Coles among the runs and wickets for the home side. Having played for Kent, Hampshire and Essex, he’s fetched up at Northants looking for some game time and making the most of it. Still not 30, there was a brief moment when the burly seamer who hits a long ball was being whispered about as the new Andrew Flintoff – but that was never going to happen. If Coles can find a bit of form before the T20 season kicks off, he could swing a few matches with bat or ball.Ball six: England WatchI was at the Oval on Monday to check the form of Dominic Sibley, who, as is so often the case, was dismissed a moment or two after I had assumed my seat. Ed Smith was there too and, like me, the national selector will have come away impressed with what he saw of Sam Curran. The all-rounder is still on the road back to fitness and was limited (by the ECB) to 30 overs in the match, which produced 5-77. Frankly, it could have been 10-77 had Warwickshire’s batsmen been able to edge the deliveries that snaked past both sides of the bat and (occasionally) zig-zagged their way down the pitch. He notched a handy second-innings fifty too. I’d play both Curran and Sibley (joint top scorer in the match with a possible rival for the opener’s berth, Mark Stoneman) in the first Ashes Test, but that might mean that Stuart Broad or Jofra Archer missing out. But Curran is surely too good to sit out all formats of the international game.• This article appeared first on The 99.94 Cricket Blog• Follow Gary Naylor on Twitter Northamptonshire Support The Guardian Ball one: Beard shaves Somerset’s leadIt’s often the way that a run like Somerset’s ends in a blazing car wreck of a match – and, sure enough, it did. There are plenty of wise heads at the club who will counsel their young captain, Tom Abell, with such words of comfort, but they can do nothing to take away the identity of the victors – Essex – who now sit just 13 points behind the leaders. Alastair Cook’s 80 up top for the home side was worth twice that in a low-scoring game, in which the old hand Jamie Porter (9-73) got some unexpectedly effective support from 21-year-old academy product Aaron Beard, whose 7-45 eviscerated the Somerset middle order in the first dig and the tail in the second.

The Jamaica Manufacturers and Exporters’ Association (JMEA) is targeting the agro-processing subsector as part of measures to boost the country’s exports and enhance gross domestic product (GDP) growth.Executive Director of the entity, Imega Breese McNab, said that players in the agro-processing industry represent the largest cohort of the JMEA membership, “so we see this as a huge potential where we need to improve the linkages between agriculture and the manufacturing sectors, so that we can have higher value-added growth in Jamaica”.“We… need to improve our exports from Jamaica, and this [agro-processing] is one of the subsectors that can do that,” she added.She cited opportunity to tap into the Haitian market, which imports approximately US$2 billion worth of goods and is one of Jamaica’s closest neighbours.Mrs. Breese McNab was speaking at a forum on ‘Business and Trading Opportunities for the Regional Agri-Food Private Sector’ hosted by the JMEA, at its offices in downtown Kingston on Wednesday (January 23).Representatives from various Caribbean territories were in attendance, networking and sharing their experiences, challenges, and suggestions in boosting regional trade.The session included presentations on the topics ‘Targeting the European Union Market via the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA)’; ‘Revisiting the CARICOM Market, Hurdling the Barriers’; ‘Proposals for the Removal of Non-Tariff Barriers’; and ‘Strategies for Improving Transportation and Logistics’.Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA) representative from St. Lucia, Allister Glean, said he was pleased to participate in the event and to discuss the issues that impede regional trade.Mr. Glean commended the work of the JMEA in Jamaica, and committed to help foster linkages among Caribbean territories to boost opportunities for trade.

Rabat – Brussels has the second highest percentage of foreign residents among cities worldwide after Dubai, according to a study from Brussels Jet Pack Center for Analysis. A total of 1.2 million people inhabit Brussels, and six out of 10 of those inhabitants were not born in Belgium. Of those six, two gain Belgian citizenship at some point. Nine percent of non-Belgians in Brussels are from Morocco, making Moroccans the third most present nationality among foreigners after French people and Romanians. Africa is the most common place of origin of non-European migrants living in Brussels at 17% of migrants. Within this population, the migrants are more likely to be from North Africa than other regions on the continent. There are 184 nationalities represented in Brussels, making it one of the most racially and ethnically diverse cities in the world. Despite this diversity, there is still a high level of segregation. Foreigners from North Africa, Turkey, and the EU all live in different areas of the city. North Africans tend to settle in districts like Molenbeek, Anderlecht, Brussels-City, Saint-Josse, and Schaerbeek. On the other hand, non-Belgian EU citizens prefer to live in the city center or in the municipalities of Saint-Filles, Ixelles, and Etterbeek.Read also: Thousands Protest Hirak Prisoners in BrusselsThe study emphasizes the importance of “ensuring the social inclusion of migrants” as fundamental to the social and cultural development of Brussel’s society. The author recommends that the local government take action to ensure the inclusion of migrants in housing, work, and healthcare. In particular, addressing issues of housing has the potential to reduce the segregation seen throughout the city today.

The Coalition for Energy Efficient Comminution (CEEC) has announced a low-cost, interactive Mining Energy Innovation Forum in Santiago, Chile on October 4 at the Hyatt Hotel. “Bringing Chilean mining leaders and industry experts together, this Forum will celebrate Chilean insights and enhance knowledge-sharing in the critical area of energy efficiency in mining and processing.”“CEEC will also share our free, practical Energy Curves tools and case studies of success, and mining leaders will deliver keynote presentations sharing operational insights. Participants will gain insights from a Chilean panel of experts about emerging technologies, and interactively discuss benefits and options to boost productivity and energy efficiency.”Held on Wednesday October 4 in the lead up to PROCEMIN 2017 at the same venue, this half-day Forum gives mining professionals the chance to learn:How Chile has successfully tackled energy challenges in operations, delivering valueThrough panel experts, important energy and water efficient advances and emerging technologies for miningHow free comminution energy curves can help participants target improvement investmentsHow to benchmark, measure and track energy efficiency improvementsOptions to maximise productivity through smart, targeted improvements.This interactive and inspiring Forum will be led by CEEC CEO Alison Keogh and researcher Dr Grant Ballantyne of the University of Queensland’s Sustainable Mineral Institute, who has led development of comminution Energy Curves hosted on CEEC’s website.“Mineral processing can often use up to 50% of the energy consumed on a mine site. Due to limitations imposed by capital and operating cost strategies, operations often have significant capacity to improve. Yet there are some proven, low-risk strategies that improve energy efficiency, reduce costs, increase productivity and profit, and reduce the environmental and social footprint of mining.”CEEC, a not-for-profit, industry-funded organisation, has collaborated with researchers and industry to fund and develop a unique Energy Curve methodology to establish a baseline for current comminution energy productivity, and identify opportunities for improvement. Like the well-known cost curves, Energy Curves enable current performance to be benchmarked against equivalent operations from a large, confidential database. The Energy Curves are now recognised as an important global tool, informed by almost 60% world copper production and over 30% of gold production, along with other commodities.
THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION is expected to publish results of Europe-wide testing on meat for the presence of horsemeat today.The results of the tests were to be submitted by the European countries by yesterday, 15 April.In February, experts from all member states discussed the Commission’s proposals to test meat and meat products for the presence of horse DNA and to test for the presence of the illegal substance phenylbutazone (bute).The proposals received the support of the majority of member states and were agreed by consensus. Ireland’s Minister for Agriculture, Simon Coveney said at the time that tje meeting was “another important step in restoring consumer confidence and is a direct result of the Irish Presidency’s initiative to convene the special meeting of Ministers [that week].”The testing of meat and meat products commenced immediately after the decision was made, and was co-funded by the Commission at a rate of 75 per cent for the first month.Results from the first round of tests, to be carried out by the end of March, were to be reported to the Commission by 15 April.As part of the EU-wide coordinated control plan, 50 additional food samples were checked for horse DNA during March in Ireland, including products marketed or labelled as containing beef as a major ingredient such as minced meat, meat products and meat preparations.Last week, it was announced that the Department of Agriculture is to investigate an Irish meat supplier which received horsemeat from a Dutch company that may have distributed as much as 50,000 tonnes of contaminated meat to firms.The unnamed Irish company is one of hundreds across Europe that have been warned they may have been supplied with horse-contaminated meat from the Selten company, which consists of Wiljo Import and Export and Meat Wholesaler Willy Selten.The meat is believed to have been supplied between January 2011 and February 2013 across Europe.This was the latest news in the months-long horsemeat scandal, where meat products were found to contain horsemeat.Read: Coveney: ‘I suspect this isn’t just one rogue trader, it’s broader than that’>

Text-based games aren’t as prominent as they used to be back during the early days of PC gaming. Despite being virtually extinct (at least to mainstream gaming audiences), these games do still exist today. One such title is Subsurface Circular. Created by Bithell games (the same developer and publisher behind Thomas Was Alone and Volume), Subsurface Circular was released this past August on Steam. The game contains everything players love about text-based adventures but in a thoroughly modern package. Subsurface Circular was a hit on PC, and it is now available for iPad through the App Store.“Subsurface Circular puts players into the role of a detective stationed on the Subsurface Circular who investigates a series of disappearances among the city’s robotic working class,” reads today’s press release. “Players collect words and phrases, then use them in dialogue puzzles to uncover the world’s secrets and determine its future.”“Traditional media are great at telling short stories, but in games we tend to want to hand the player epics,” said Mike Bithell, founder of Bithell Games. “We set out to create a game that delivers a satisfying experience in one sitting, and the response from players has been incredible.”Subsurface Circular is the first title in a series of “Bithell Shorts.” It is inspired by classic adventure games but has the dialogue systems of modern titles. Bithell Games’ goal with Subsurface Circular was to create a single-session story that “respects players’ time and intelligence.” Besides the game itself, players can enjoy an art gallery where they can check out the work put into the game. There is even an unlockable “BithellBot” that acts as an interactive take on a developer’s commentary.Subsurface Circular is now available for $4.99 on the App Store. The game is designed for iPad running iOS 11 or later.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic hopes to stake a claim for a first-team spot when his club faces Manchester United at the International Champions Cup on Sunday.The young midfielder has only made a handful of first team appearances for the Merseyside outfit since signing for them in the summer of 2016.Grujic is keen to show manager Jurgen Klopp he’s ready for a first-team spot starting with the game against United on Sunday.The 22-year-old joined Liverpool from Red Star Belgrade in 2016 but has only appeared 14 times for the club since then.Grujic spent the second half of last season on loan at newly promoted side Cardiff City scoring once in 13 appearances in the Sky Bet Championship.Now back training at Liverpool, Grujic is keen to stay and impress at the club.When asked if he would return to join Cardiff who now play in the Premier League, Grujic said as quoted in Goal:Virgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.“I’ll speak to the manager and Michael Edwards about my situation over the next few weeks.”“I’m a Liverpool player at the time being and I’m keen to show my best to the manager.”Liverpool have already bolstered their midfield with the additions of Naby Keita and Fabinho from RB Leipzig and Monaco respectively.But Grujic isn’t scared in any way by the daunting task at hand.“Everyone knows we’ve added some great players to the midfield position but we’ll see what happens.”“Of cos, I would rather go out on loan than seat on the bench or play with the U-23’s but the final decision rest with the club and the manager.”The Serbian midfielder is hoping to get a chance against Manchester United so as to prove himself.

OLYMPIA — With organizations spending more than ever to put initiatives before the voters, signature-gatherers are looking to Clark County for support on conservative issues, such as repealing gay marriage.On June 6, Preserve Marriage Washington turned in 247,311 petition signatures to the Secretary of State’s elections office. These signatures — partly collected by paid signature-gatherers — placed R-74 on the November ballot in an effort to repeal the recent law legalizing gay marriage.Of these 247,311 signatures, The Columbian estimates about 19,000 of them, or approximately 7.7 percent, came from Clark County. The estimate is based on the number of Clark County residents found in a quarter of the signatures. The county has about 6.3 percent of the state’s population.Rep. Ed Orcutt, R-Kalama, attributed Clark County’s opposition to gay marriage to the fact that many voters, especially in the northern part of the county, are strong believers in traditional marriage.

The program, New York Deals, will work in tandem with partner companies such as Gilt City, zozi, BuyWithMe and Lifebooker. Curated by New York magazine staff, New York Deals will feature a weekly round-up of deals for dining, shopping, spas, activities and events. According to a news release, more than 15,000 users are projected to subscribe to New York Deals, which will be in the form of a weekly email. Serena Torrey, executive director of digital business development with New York magazine’s parent company New York Media, says, “It’s incredibly difficult for busy people to know which email is worth opening and which deal is worth buying, particularly when the businesses featured are unfamiliar…by subscribing to the New York Deals newsletter, New Yorkers will be receiving a short, weekly list of the deals that are most worthy of their attention…” In other e-commerce news, F + W Media has announced that they will be opening their 25th e-commerce store in a joint venture with Hoffman Media. The new store, which will be located at store.marthapullen.com, is set focus on the sewing marketplace.

F +W Media currently has 30 magazine titles, and houses over 350 thousand SKUs over its 25 sites.
