Paul Adams will step down as Cape Cobras coach from January 1 to be redeployed as Western Cape Cricket high performance manager and coach. This follows a prolonged period of player unhappiness with Adams, who has been in charge for five seasons and won five trophies but faced several mutinies this season.

Cobras have not announced Adams’ successor but have on their staff Faiek Davids and former international batsman Ashwell Prince, who are likely to come into contention to take over. Being mid-season, they will need to find a solution soon because their next fixture is a first-class match starting January 5. 

Adams’ troubles with the players began at the end of last season when several senior Cobras players complained to the management about what they believed was a lack of tactical acumen on Adams’ part. Adams had the backing of the Western Cape Cricket (WCC) Board, though, and the concerns were ignored. Instead, Adams underwent management courses over the winter but returned to work to find the players still unhappy. They filed a formal grievance on May 10, after learning that Adams had been offered a contract extension. 

The WCC then agreed to an internal mediation under Paddy Upton but rejected his report for what they termed “material deficiencies,” as he had failed to interview all the contracted players. The South African Cricketers’ Association then became involved in assisting the players in dealing with the issue. 

The SACA confirmed that 10 out of the 17 contracted players wanted Adams removed and helped them take the matter to the country’s dispute resolution body, the Council for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA), where the players applied for the right to strike should Adams not be removed. The CCMA granted them that right but they did not act on it. It appears as though their demands have now been met and neither party showed ill-feeling.

“Helping the team to succeed in ways which led to a number of trophies and getting players going up to the Proteas was a very satisfying part of my five-season journey as Cobras’ coach,” Adams said. “I am looking forward very much to my new role.”

The new year will begin with Cobras searching for consistency after starting the season with three defeats in the first-class competition to lie at the bottom of the table halfway through the tournament. They fared slightly better in the T20 format and were in contention for a playoff place but failed to qualify. They have also sent two senior players on loan to other franchises – first-class captain Omphile Ramela to Lions for part of the T20 competition and offspinner Dane Piedt to Titans. There was no indication if either would be back under a new coach.

2016 was all about women power at the box office. From Alia Bhatt to Sonam Kapoor and from Radhika Apte to Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, we saw some extremely feisty performances on the silver screen. But some actresses were spoken about much more than the rest, thanks to the stories they picked, the characters they portrayed and the determination with which they went about their performances.



Alia Bhatt

Sitting pretty on our list of the most talked about actresses of this year is none other than Alia Bhatt. The 23-year-old star displayed some serious acting chops in ‘Udta Punjab’. Utterly convincing in her portrayal of a Bihari migrant who gets trapped in the drug trade and human trafficking nexus, Alia owned the character and how. Later this year, she floored the critics and fans with her performance in Gauri Shinde‘s ‘Dear Zindagi’.



Anushka Sharma

Anushka Sharma was a delight to watch in Ali Abbas Zafar’s ‘Sultan’. She walked shoulder to shoulder with Salman Khan in every frame and her performance really stood out. Later in the year, she delivered her most nuanced performance in ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ as the spunky yet intense, Alizeh.



Radhika Apte

This list is incomplete without a mention of Radhika Apte. A delight to watch, Radhika lights up the screen every time she appears on it. She proved her mettle with two very different, yet very striking movies – she played a girl affected by Agoraphobia in ‘Phobia’ and she played a village girl who suffers domestic abuse as she is thought to be infertile in ‘Parched’.



Sonam Kapoor

Many believe that Sonam Kapoor gave her career best performance in Ram Madhvani’s ‘Neerja’. A biopic on Neerja Bhanot, an airline purser who lost her life saving passengers on a hijacked US-bound Pan Am Flight, struck a chord with many. Critics hailed her performance and fans loved Sonam in and as ‘Neerja’.



Kirti Kulhari

A film that initiated debate in the country and raised some socially relevant questions was ‘Pink’. Replete with powerful performances, this Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu starrer was one of the most important films of 2016. Along with the lead stars, the girl who stood out in her performance was Kirti Kulhari, who played Falak. Watch out for this talented girl.

Train derails near Kanpur injuring 61; latest crash to raise concerns

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Train derails near Kanpur injuring 61; latest crash to raise concerns
Dec
29


NEW DELHI A train derailed in Uttar Pradesh on Wednesday injuring 61 people, police and rail officials said, the third significant accident in recent months that have raised concern about the safety of the ageing rail network.

The train came off the tracks and crashed near Kanpur early in the morning.

“Our latest assessment is that 61 people got injured in the accident and two sustained grievous injuries,” said Anil Kumar Saxena, spokesman for Indian Railways.

The train had just pulled out of the station and its speed was “rather slow”, he said.

Television footage from the scene showed mangled, toppled carriages. Two coaches had fallen off a bridge into a small canal while some passengers were seen picking up their luggage from near the tracks.

India’s creaking railway system is the world’s fourth largest. It runs 11,000 trains a day, including 7,000 passenger trains carrying more than 20 million people.

But it has a poor safety record, with thousands of people dying every year in derailments, collisions and other accidents.

This was the third accident significant in recent months.

On November 20, at least 146 people were killed when a train derailed near the same city.

A train rammed into a van taking children to school at a level crossing in north India in July, killing eight of them.

Railways minister Suresh Prabhu has promised to replace old tracks and upgrade safety systems. The government spends more than 90 percent of the railways’ revenues on operational costs, leaving little for upgrades of the colonial-era system.

Some analysts estimate the railways need 20 trillion rupees ($293.21 billion) of investment by 2020, and India is turning to partnerships with private companies and seeking loans from other countries to upgrade the network.

‘We gave away some easy wickets’

Although Dimuth Karunaratne, Kusal Perera and Kusal Mendis were all dismissed playing expansive strokes against the new ball, Dinesh Chandimal said there had not been a concerted plan to be aggressive – it just happened that way.

The first three dismissals, in particular, caused consternation, after Sri Lanka began their innings what was still a seam-friendly Port Elizabeth pitch. In pursuit of South Africa’s 286, Sri Lanka soon slipped to 22 for 3. Kusal Perera’s attempted cut to a Vernon Philander delivery came in for particular criticism.

“There was no specific plan to score fast,” said Chandimal. “We know that that we use Kusal Perera to score quickly, but unfortunately he got out early. This is a tough wicket to bat on. We did make some mistakes and gave them some easy wickets. We need to fight back tomorrow and get as close as we can to their score.”

That Perera bats at No. 3 is partly due to Chandimal’s own place in the team. Both he and Perera are wicketkeeper-batsmen, but Chandimal is the more accomplished gloveman, and takes that role when he is fit. If Chandimal were to bat further up the order, Perera would likely move down to No. 6 or 7.

“Since Kusal is playing at No. 3, I am given the wicketkeeping duties,” Chandimal said. “I can’t bat that high because otherwise I’d be tired from keeping. We’ve given some opportunities to the young guys in our team, and they didn’t take them today, but hopefully they will in the second innings.”

Dhananjaya de Silva played Sri Lanka’s most assured innings of the day, and remains not-out on 43 alongside Dushmantha Chameera. De Silva is an opener for his first-class side, Tamil Union Cricket Club, and has also been talked about as a potential opener or No. 3 batsman, given his experience in the top order. Sri Lanka have, however, been reluctant to move him from the lower-middle order where he presently averages over 60.

“Dhananjaya is an opener, but we have a settled opening combination,” Chandimal said. “He’s also very good when it comes to batting with the tail. If he can get us a few more runs, it will give us some momentum.”

Luca Todesco Released Yalu iOS 10, 10.1.1 Jailbreak

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Luca Todesco Released Yalu iOS 10, 10.1.1 Jailbreak
Dec

Italian hacker and security researcher Luca Tedesco promised an iOS 10 / 10.1.1 jailbreak release last week, and he kept his word. This came amid reports that Apple’s current operating system is difficult to penetrate. The jailbreak, which is built atop the exploit recently published by Google’s Project Zero, is now available for the public and can be downloaded. 

Todesco made an announcement on his Twitter account just last week that iPhone users need to be on iOS 10.1.1 to be able to use his jailbreak version. Apple announced previously that they have stopped signing iOS 10.1.1, which means that if you are on iOS 10.2, Todesco’s jailbreak won’t work for you, but, according to 1redDrop, if you have saved your .shsh2 blobs, then you can go ahead with the jailbreak.

Also, the iOS 10 jailbreak is in beta which means that it may contain bugs and other problems that are yet to be discovered, ValueWalk reported.  For users whose devices are not supported, no need to worry because an update that will widen its support will soon be released.

Luca Todesco’s jailbreak, which is called yalu + mach_portal, is now available for iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s and iPad Pro. Firmware versions that can be jailbroken with the tool include the iOS 10.1 and iOS 10.1.1 for the iPhone 7. For all versions, prior to iOS 10.2 of the iPhone 6s and iPad Pro are supported. 

To be able to download the jailbreak, users need to have iTunes installed on the PC or Mac.  Also, the Touch ID and Passcode must be disabled in the device. Experts stress that the Yalu jailbreak is the first beta iteration, so you can’t expect a perfect tool just yet. Also, do not try to install any tweaks or apps via Cydia, as this is a beta jailbreak only meant for developers.

Akshay Kumar can’t seem to get enough of this song

Akshay Kumar has had nothing short of a dream run this year with one big hit after the other. His next film ‘Jolly LLB 2’ is also on its way and the actor knows how to relax and enjoy his successes.

Bhumi Pednekar: Akshay Kumar is a complete entertainer

The actor posted a breathtakingly beautiful picture on his Instagram, where only his silhouette his visible with a brilliant golden sunset in the background near the sea. Along with the picture, he also had a cryptic message, “Sun is shining and so are you 🙂 #songinmyhead #springinmystep.”

It looks like Akshay is referring to the popular uplifting track ‘Sun is Shining’ by Axwell Ingrosso, but it could have many other meanings. The Khiladi Kumar will be seen next in ‘Toilet- Ek Prem Katha’ opposite Bhumi Pednekar.

Modi says won’t hesitate on tough decisions to help economy

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Modi says won’t hesitate on tough decisions to help economy
Dec
25


PATALGANGA, India India will not hesitate to make tough decisions to help support its growing economy, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Saturday, alluding to his recent scrapping of 500 and 1,000 rupee banknotes to tackle endemic corruption.

Modi told an event organised by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), India’s capital markets regulator that his government would continue to follow sound and prudent economic policies to ensure that India’s long-term prospects are bright.

“We will not take decisions for short-term political point scoring . . . We will not shy away from taking difficult decisions if those decisions are in the interests of the country,” Modi said.

“Demonetisation is an example. It is a short-term pain but it will bring long-term gain.”

Modi announced the shock move to ditch 500 and 1,000 rupee notes with a combined value of $256 billion on Nov. 8, saying the large denomination notes fuelled corruption and fraud and were even used to finance attacks by militants who target India.

With the cash economy estimated to account for a fifth of India’s $2 trillion gross domestic product, the decision has disrupted the daily lives of hundreds of millions of Indians.

But economists and some businesses say it could ultimately help broaden the formal economy and improve tax compliance.

Modi said the government had transformed the economy in less than three years by cutting and achieving fiscal deficit targets, keeping the current account deficit low, boosting foreign exchange reserves and lowering inflation.

“Developed countries and emerging markets are both facing slow growth. Against this background, India is being seen as a bright spot. Growth is projected to remain among the highest in the world,” he said.

Spinners Abhishek and Chahar seal title for India

India Under-19s 273 for 8 (Rana 71, Gill 70, Ransika 3-50, Jayawickrama 3-53) beat Sri Lanka Under-19s 238 (Kelly 62, Mendis 53, Abhishek 4-37, Chahar 3-22) by 34 runs

Half-centuries from opener Himanshu Rana and No. 3 Shubman Gill provided India Under-19s with a total of 273, which they were able to defend successfully thanks a middle-overs squeeze by their spinners Abhishek Sharma and Rahul Chahar. In the end, hosts Sri Lanka were beaten by 34 runs.

At one point though, that result had seemed unlikely. With the momentum of picking up six wickets in the last 11 overs fuelling them, Sri Lanka went after the target with great vigour. Captain Kamindu Mendis and R Kelly struck fifties each to take the score to 158 for 2 in the 31st over. That brought the equation down to 116 off 118 balls with eight wickets in hand.

India needed to re-establish control and their 16-year old captain Abhishek helped with that, dismissing Kelly for 63. He finished with figures of 4 for 37 in 10 overs of left-arm spin and claimed the Man-of-the-Match award. Sri Lanka had to deal with Chahar’s miserly legspin from the other end. With him bowling his full quota, giving away only 22 runs, and picking up three wickets as well, the chase unravelled. Sri Lanka lost three wickets in five overs between the 38th and 43rd, then another three wickets with the score on 225 and were finally bowled out for 239.

It signalled the importance of first-innings runs in Colombo, and India were able to put up enough thanks to Rana’s 71 off 79 balls and Gill’s 70 off 92 balls. While their partnership of 88 for the second wicket was on, it seemed like India would get to a total of 300 or more, but seamer Nipun Ransika, who took two wickets in the 47th over, and left-arm spinner Praveen Jayawickrama, who dismissed both the half-centurions, ensured that did not happen. Sri Lanka would later realise that the damage had already been done.

Mistry quits Tata group director roles but vows to fight on

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Mistry quits Tata group director roles but vows to fight on
Dec
20


MUMBAI Former Tata Sons [TATAS.UL] chairman Cyrus Mistry bowed to pressure to quit from the boards of all Tata group companies on Monday, but promised to fight to improve the $100 billion salt-to-software conglomerate’s governance.

Mistry said he was resigning as a director from the boards of all Tata group listed firms, just ahead of extraordinary general meetings (EGMs) called by Tata Sons to oust him.

His exit, which follows a bitter boardroom battle since late October when the directors of Tata Sons sacked him as chairman of the group, spares the Indian company a series of acrimonious shareholders meetings.

Ratan Tata, patriarch of the Tata group, had been lobbying institutional and retail shareholders of each of the group companies to get them to vote for Mistry’s removal.

In a letter to shareholders on Dec. 7, Tata wrote that Mistry’s continued presence was a “serious disruptive influence” in the group.

Mistry, in a letter published on Monday, vowed to keep up his campaign from outside the company.

“It is time to shift gears, up the momentum, and be more incisive in securing the best interests of the Tata Group.”

“It is with this thought that I have decided to shift this campaign to a larger platform and also one where the rule of law and equity is upheld,” Mistry added.

In separate regulatory filings, Indian Hotels (IHTL.NS) and Tata Steel (TISC.NS) said that Mistry has stepped down as director from their respective boards with immediate effect.

ICC chairman says Thakur wanted letter against government interference

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on ICC chairman says Thakur wanted letter against government interference
Dec

According to ICC chairman Shashank Manohar, in August BCCI president Anurag Thakur asked for a letter stating that the appointment of a CAG would amount to government interference © AFP

ICC chairman Shashank Manohar has contradicted BCCI president Anurag Thakur’s claim in his affidavit to the Supreme Court that he did not ask the ICC for a letter stating that the Lodha Committee’s recommendation to have a member of the Comptroller and Auditor General’s office on the apex council of the BCCI amounted to government interference in the board.

In an email to the Lodha Committee on November 2, Manohar wrote that Thakur had asked him to issue a letter but he had refused to do so.

The matter was last heard in the Supreme Court on December 15 and the court said there was, on first impression, enough evidence for a charge of perjury against Thakur.

Manohar, in his email, said Thakur had made the request on August 6, at an ICC meeting also attended by ICC directors Giles Clarke, David Peever and Imran Khawaja, as well as ICC CEO David Richardson and COO Iain Higgins.

“During the meeting Mr. Thakur pointed out to me that when I was the President of BCCI, a submission was advanced before the Supreme Court at my behest that the appointment of a nominee of the CAG on the Apex Council might amount to Governmental interference and would invoke an action of suspension from the ICC,” Manohar wrote. “He therefore requested me to issue a letter to that effect in my capacity as ICC Chairman.

“I declined to issue such a letter and explained to him that the said submission was advanced before the Hon Supreme Court when the court was hearing the matter. However, on 18-7-2016 the Hon SC delivered its judgement in the matter and rejected the submission that the appointment of a nominee of the CAG would amount to governmental interference.

“I therefore explained to Mr Thakur that the issue having been decided by the Hon Supreme Court of India, which is the highest court of the country and whose judgement binds everybody, I cannot give him any such letter. All this transpired in the presence of the Directors I have named earlier and the CEO and COO of ICC.”

The issue first arose on September 12, when India Today quoted Richardson as saying that Thakur had asked the game’s governing body for a letter that would support the BCCI’s stance against the Lodha Committee’s recommendations: the ICC does not permit government interference in the running of its Full Member boards.

The Supreme Court got involved, asking Thakur why he would need to ask for such a letter when the court had already approved the Lodha Committee’s recommendation for a CAG official on the apex council. On October 17, Thakur filed an affidavit in which he denied asking the ICC for such a letter.

Thakur said he only asked Manohar what his stance on the matter had been when he was the BCCI president. “I pointed out to the Chairman of the ICC, Mr Shashank Manohar that, when he was President of BCCI, he had taken a view that the recommendations of the Justice Lodha committee appointing the nominee of the CAG on the Apex Council would amount to governmental interference, and might invoke an action of suspension from ICC,” Thakur had said in his affidavit. “I therefore requested him that, being the ICC Chairman, can a letter be issued clarifying the position which he had taken as BCCI President.”

According to Lodha Committee secretary Gopal Sankaranarayanan, there was a discrepancy in the affidavit submitted by Thakur and the letter submitted by Manohar. “In [Anurag] Thakur’s version of events it is a clarification he had sought. In Manohar’s version of events, he said, ‘As ICC chairman I was asked to give a letter, not a clarification, saying that this amounts to interference.'”

The Lodha Committee – comprising former Chief Justice of India RM Lodha and retired Supreme Court judges Ashok Bhan and R Raveendran – was formed in January 2015 to determine appropriate punishments for some of the officials involved in the 2013 IPL corruption scandal, and also to propose changes to streamline the BCCI, reform its functioning, prevent sporting fraud and conflict of interest.

In January 2016, the committee released its report, which recommended an exhaustive overhaul of the BCCI’s governance and administrative structures. On July 18, the Supreme Court approved the majority of the recommendations and directed the Lodha Committee to supervise the BCCI’s implementations of the same. However, despite the Lodha Committee laying out timelines and other directives, the board has not cooperated because its state associations objected to the recommendations.

‘Super Mario Run’ Crashing? Gameplay Not Working On Older iPhones With Jailbreak

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on ‘Super Mario Run’ Crashing? Gameplay Not Working On Older iPhones With Jailbreak
Dec

Many iOS users may be feeling mighty smug that Super Mario Run is currently an Apple exclusive, but some users may experience issues playing the mobile game if their iPhone or iPad is jailbroken.

Several reports indicate Super Mario Run may immediately crash on iOS devices with jailbreak software installed. At this time the Super Mario Run APK is not available, meaning users cannot sideload the software to avoid security safeguards such as jailbreak detection on iOS.

There are currently two patches available to allow iOS users to bypass jailbreak detection on their devices or to remedy frequent crashing.

The first, detailed by Cydia Geeks requires users launch the Cydia jailbreak manager and reload sources. The users must add and install the xCon repository then respring the device.

The second, detailed by iDownloadBlog requires users launch Cydia and search for the tsprotector software. Select tsProtector 8+ (iOS 9 8), tap the blue install button and follow instructions to completion.

To apply the patch, users should access setting from home screen and open tsProtector preferences. Open the Blacklist Apps option and toggle.

Users should keep in mind that jailbreaks can potentially cause harm to phones and can lead to restrictions or bans from various software. Install these customizations at your own risk.

It remains unknown how the constant internet connection required for Super Mario Run gameplay will react to jailbreaks.

Modi’s cash crackdown sends retail inflation to two-year low

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Modi’s cash crackdown sends retail inflation to two-year low
Dec
14


NEW DELHI India’s retail inflation cooled to a two-year low in November after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s shock currency replacement programme dented consumer spending, fuelling hopes of an interest rate cut by the RBI at its next policy review.

Consumer prices rose by an annual 3.63 percent last month, their slowest pace since November 2014, government data showed on Tuesday. Economists surveyed by Reuters had expected prices to rise 3.90 percent year-on-year, compared with a 4.20 gain in October.

Food inflation was 2.11 percent last month, lower than October’s 3.32 percent.

Modi’s sudden move on November 8 to cancel 500-rupee and 1,000-rupee banknotes, which accounted for 86 percent of the cash circulating in Asia’s third-largest economy, has disrupted daily life, depressing consumer demand.

People struggling to get new notes are holding back on spending, except for immediate and urgent needs.

November’s reading is way below the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) 5 percent inflation target for March 2017 as well as the medium-term target of 4 percent.

With the cash shortage hitting consumer demand, some economists expect headline retail inflation to stay below 4 percent in coming months and undershoot the RBI’s March target by at least 50 basis points.

“I expect the demonetisation impact to help cool off inflation till February, due to demand contraction,” said Rupa Rege Nitsure, chief economist at LT Finance Holdings in Mumbai.

“I expect RBI to cut rates in February.”

In a sign of things to come, Indian services activity plunged into contraction in November for the first time since June 2015, due to a sharp decline in demand, a survey showed, while factory activity also slowed.

Still, the RBI surprised investors last week by keeping interest rates on hold, saying the impact of the currency swap programme on the economy would be transitory.

The central bank also flagged inflationary risks emanating from the currency shortages that could endanger the winter crop, and an uncertain outlook for global crude prices and increasing volatility in the foreign exchange market.

Crude oil prices this week hit their highest level since mid-2015, after the world’s top crude producers agreed to the first joint output cut since 2001.

The U.S. dollar’s rally against emerging market currencies, such as the rupee, on bets that Donald Trump will adopt policies to spark growth, has also raised the spectre of imported inflation.

“There is limited scope for deeper easing,” said Abhishek Upadhyay, an economist at ICICI Securities Primary Dealership.

Behardien’s 15-ball 55 takes Titans into final

In a top-of-the-table, rain-affected clash, Titans secured their place in the final with a narrow win over Warriors, who will host Lions in the qualifier. The match was reduced to five overs a side and Titans prevailed thanks to Farhaan Behardien’s 55 off 15 balls – the fastest in the competition’s history.

Titans lost their openers Jonathan Vandiar and Heino Kuhn in the first seven balls but Behardien stole the show after that. He struck four fours and five sixes in an explosive knock, during which no bowler was spared. Jon-Jon Smuts’ solitary over cost 24, Sisanda Magala’s 27 and Kyle Abbott – playing his first game for his new franchise – was hit for 18. Behardien’s 50 came off 14 balls and he put on 73 runs for the third wicket with Heinrich Klaasen – who scored 17 off nine balls – to take Titans to a competitive five-over total.

Warriors appeared up for it in the reply and racked up 19 runs off the first over and 29 off the first ten balls. Smuts was dismissed after that but Colin Ingram and Christiaan Jonker kept up with the rate. Warriors were 53 for 1 after thee overs, needing 28 off the last two.

David Wiese conceded no boundaries in his over and dismissed Ingram to leave Warriors needing 22 of the final over. Malusi Siboto conceded just five runs off the first four balls to put the game beyond Warriors and Jonker’s 10 runs off the last two balls were in vain.

Lions booked their spot in Tuesday’s qualifier with a slender victory over Cobras – bolstered by the return of several international batsmen – on a scorching afternoon in Paarl. Legspinner Eddie Leie’s four wicket haul was crucial in the Lions’ defence of 139.

Asked to bat first, Lions started well after openers Rassie van der Dussen and Reeza Hendricks put on 45 inside six overs. The loss of Hendricks and Dwaine Pretorius in successive overs pegged Lions back, but a 61-run third-wicket stand between van der Dussen, who scored the innings’ only half-century, and Mangaliso Mosehle, set Lions up well at 109 for 3 in the 14th over.

But Wayne Parnell and Tshepo Moreki carved their way through Lions’ middle-order and took 6 for 48 between them to leave Lions with a below-par total of 139 for 8. Of the Lions’ last six batsmen to visit the crease, only Temba Bavuma managed double figures.

Cobras would have been confident of chasing down the total, especially with Hashim Amla and JP Duminy back in their XI, but they were the first two batsmen to be dismissed – Amla for 15 and Duminy for 3, both falling to Dwaine Pretorius – to leave Cobras needing contributions from their domestic regulars.

Richard Levi stood man alone for the first half of the reply and plundered 41 runs off 33 balls but the rest were outspun by Leie and Bjorn Fortuin – they lost their last seven wickets for 47 runs and only Kieron Pollards’ run-a-ball 18 looked like it could do any damage.

The win put Lions one point ahead of the Cobras and put them through to the qualifiers, where they will face Warriors on Tuesday, with the winner taking on Titans in Friday’s final.

In a fixture that had no bearing on the playoffs, Knights secured their third-win of a disappointing campaign as they finished the season at the bottom. They beat the Dolphins, who won the same number of matches and ended above them by a point.

Dolphins’ innings did not get going until the final over, in a game reduced to eight overs a side. They were 38 for 5 after seven overs with all of Cameron Delport, Morne van Wyk, Kevin Pietersen, Robbie Frylinck and Keshav Maharaj dismissed in single figures. Khaya Zondo hit three sixes in four balls off Corne Dry in the last over to give Dolphins something to defend.

After two overs, they would have known it was not enough. Knights were 29 for 1 at the end of the second over, with David Miller and Patrick Kruger in no mood to hang around. Imran Tahir bowled a boundary-free third over but the Knights were in control after that and reached the total with two overs to spare.

iOS 10 Jailbreak Status: 5 Things to Know in December

“When is the iOS 10 jailbreak release date?” is the most common jailbreak question we’ve heard. This is what you need to know about the iOS 10 jailbreak status and what to watch out for while you wait for the iOS 10 jailbreak tool from Pangu or other sources.

Apple is about to release iOS 10.2 for the iPhone and iPad, and a new warning says that users who want an iOS 10 jailbreak should avoid this new update at all costs.

Although iOS 10.2 is new to most users, it is not new to developers and to users who look through the code in hopes of discovering how to jailbreak iOS 10. For the past several months users have been trying various means, and there is more evidence that jailbreak teams are making progress.

Apple released the iOS 10.1 update on Monday October 24th, and we expect an iOS 10.2 release date as soon as next week.

Below you’ll see an early example of the iOS 10 jailbreak on the iPhone 7, but this is not a public iOS 10 jailbreak release.

Here’s an up to date look at the jailbreak status and how it will impact your upgrade strategy or buying the iPhone 7.

When is the iOS 10 Jailbreak Release Date

What you need to know about the iOS 10 jailbreak release date.What you need to know about the iOS 10 jailbreak release date.

What you need to know about the iOS 10 jailbreak release date.

There is no confirmed iOS 10 jailbreak release date, nor an iOS 10.2 jailbreak release date. Normally a jailbreak on a completely new iOS version takes weeks or months, which is where we are at with iOS 10.

Although there is no specific iOS 10 jailbreak release date we continue to see publications claim specific dates and milestones, but the best resources are direct from jailbreak teams — who aren’t sharing much.

iOS 10 Jailbreak Status

There is some iOS 10 jailbreak progress already. Luca Todesco, who shared many inside looks into the iOS 9 jailbreak process earlier this year shares the video above whew we see him open Cydia on an iOS 10 device.

This appears similar to the iOS 9.3.3 jailbreak release that many users installed earlier this year. There is no information about an iOS 10 jailbreak release date or a jailbreak tool. Typically Todesco shares some of his insights but is not directly releasing tools to the public.

In July Pangu made known that they are working on an iOS 10 jailbreak according to a report on iDownloadBlog. They did not make any specific announcements or provide a timeline for a release.

In December Tudesco warns that users should wait to upgrade to iOS 10.2 if they want a jailbreak. Typically Apple allows a short downgrade period, but if you know you want to jailbreak you should follow this advice until further notice.

iOS 10 Jailbreak vs iPhone 7 Jailbreak

Hopefully the iOS 10 jailbreak and iPhone 7 jailbreak arrive on the same date.Hopefully the iOS 10 jailbreak and iPhone 7 jailbreak arrive on the same date.

Hopefully the iOS 10 jailbreak and iPhone 7 jailbreak arrive on the same date.

In many instances the new iOS jailbreak works on the new iPhone. If we are lucky the iPhone 7 jailbreak will be interchangeable with the iOS 10 jailbreak when one arrives.

Watch out for users on Twitter and forums trolling users by saying that there is no chance for an iPhone 7 jailbreak.

Watch Out for Fake iOS 10 Jailbreak Scams

Watch out for fake iOS 10 jailbreak tools.Watch out for fake iOS 10 jailbreak tools.

Watch out for fake iOS 10 jailbreak tools.

There are already a lot of fake iOS 10 jailbreak tools and fake iOS 10 jailbreak scams. Right now there is absolutely no working iOS 10 jailbreak tool for the public. Sites that claim to offer an iOS 10 jailbreak tool are simply trying to take your information or your money. Most often these websites will ask you to complete an offer or sign up for a service that makes them money and leaves you with a useless file or attempts to install malware on your computer with a fake iOS 10 jailbreak tool.

Make Sure You Don’t Accidentally Upgrade to iOS 10

If you upgrade to iOS 10 you cannot downgrade to a version of iOS 9 that you can jailbreak anymore.

You should download NO PLS RECOVERY from Cydia which will prevent iTunes from updating when you are in the jailbroken mode.

Pangu already blocks the iOS 10 upgrade on your jailbroken iPhone, so you just need to be careful when you plug in to iTunes.

Did our Bollywood stars preempt demonetisation? Well, not really but it certainly does seem like their on-screen characters did know what was coming. What else would explain the situations listed below? The demonetisation move has been hailed by many, received brickbats by some and it has been heavily trolled by social media users. We at TOI cull out some rather funny scenes and dialogues from popular Bollywood films that completely and hilariously sum up our life in the times of demonetisation.

India promotes digital transactions to encourage cashless economy

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on India promotes digital transactions to encourage cashless economy
Dec

NEW DELHI Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Thursday announced incentives ranging from 0.75 percent to 10 percent on retail purchase of products like petrol, diesel and insurance products from state-run companies to encourage digital, cashless transactions.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi scrapped 500-rupee and 1,000-rupee banknotes on November 8 in a bid to flush out cash earned through illegal activities, or earned legally but never disclosed. Citizens could redeem their money only by depositing it with banks, to be paid out over a period of time.

Since coming to power in 2014, Modi has pledged to crack down on so-called black money with new measures including 10-year jail terms for evaders.

“The incentive scheme has the potential of shifting at least 30 percent more customers to digital means which will further reduce the cash requirement of nearly 2 trillion rupees ($29.69 billion) a year at the petrol pumps,” Jaitley told reporters.

He said state-run insurance companies would offer discount of up to 10 percent on payment of insurance premium through digital means.

Government officials are worried 90 percent of the discontinued notes could yet come back into the financial system, deposited in banks to be converted into valid lower or new higher-denomination notes. This would put a question mark on meeting Modi’s aim of flushing out untaxed money.

Banks have so far received nearly 12 trillion rupees in discounted currency since the government decided to abolish high value bank notes.

Opposition parties stalled the parliament for the 14th day on Thursday seeking a probe into the mismanagement of supply of new currency to the public.

Modi has called for patience until December 30 by when he has promised the cash situation would stabilise, and urged the people to shift to electronic transactions.

Maharashtra deny Karnataka Pandey’s replacement

Maharashtra have turned down Karnataka’s request for a replacement player after Manish Pandey was pulled out of their ongoing Ranji Trophy fixture in Mohali. Pandey was drafted into the India squad after Ajinkya Rahane was ruled out of the fourth and fifth Tests against England with a finger injury.

Faced with the prospect of playing with only ten batsmen, Karnataka requested Pranab Roy, the match referee, for a replacement. According to The Hindu, Roy, after consultations with MV Sridhar, BCCI’s general manager (cricket operations), sought Maharashtra captain Swapnil Gugale’s consent to allow a replacement for Pandey. Gugale, however, denied the request.

“The match referee had asked for a substitute and we said no. That’s it,” Gugale told ESPNcricinfo. “The game is a little crucial for us and you never know what can happen tomorrow.”

Roy said the match officials went by the rules. “[The] rules are clear that a replacement can be allowed subject to the consent of the captain of the opposing team,” he told The Hindu. “But when fielding in the second innings, Karnataka will be allowed a substitute fielder.” Roy also confirmed that should Pandey not play in the Mumbai Test and if the team management releases him, he could return for the match.

Karnataka already have an injury concern, with Abhimanyu Mithun leaving the field after bowling only two deliveries on the opening day. They had a good day, however, as they dismissed Maharashtra for 163 after sending them in. Karnataka began their reply in solid fashion, and went to stumps on 67 for 1.

Karnataka, along with Jharkhand, have already qualified for the knockouts from Group B, while Maharashtra are in a three-way battle with Delhi and Odisha for the final qualification spot.

Pangu has been ripe to deliver the next iOS 10 jailbreak tool in the coming days. This news has many iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch fans delighted as the famous hacking team has been silent for months. With Apple releasing iOS 10.2 beta 5, researchers have already found means to bypass the Activation Lock protection in the software.

While it is typical for Apple to release updates to their software quite often, the iOS 10.2 public beta 5 was released at such a surprising speed. This has now been the second public beta release in a week, which means that the final version of iOS 10.2 is just around the corner. With this speed, it has been predicted that Apple releases the iOS 10.2 by Monday next week.

With the release of the final iOS 10.2 version, Pangu will be releasing their jailbreak tool as well. While the famous hacking group has actually been really silent for many months, fans still believe that the team will be able to provide a working jailbreak tool.

As previously reported, Pangu has been working on a modified version of iOS 10 and will only be releasing the finalized jailbreak tool along with the iOS 10.2. This is to avoid Apple being able to patch the glitches being exploited by the hack, which would in turn make the effect last longer.

According to a website dedicated for iOS 10 jailbreaks, there is a certain type of bug in iOS 10 that allows the bypass of the Activation Lock in the software. This could have been the break for the jailbreaking team.

This bug had reportedly been seen first with iOS 10.1, and has since been patched by Apple. However, a new clip has surfaced, proving the bug still exists even up to iOS 10.1.1. This could also have been the same exploit used by another hacking entity, Luca Todesco, when he confirmed to have jailbroken an iPhone 7 with iOS 10.1.1.



With this trajectory of both Pangu and Apple in their seemingly hairline race, the iOS 10 jailbreak tool will soon be released. Fans in the jailbreaking community could only hope that Pangu could finally pull a fast one on Apple.
