Former F1 champion Niki Lauda dead at 70

(Reuters) – Three-times Formula One champion Niki Lauda, regarded as one of the finest racers of all time and who later became a successful airline entrepreneur, has died at 70 after battling declining health.

Austrian Lauda, who was hospitalised in January for about 10 days while suffering from influenza and had a lung transplant last August, died on Monday, his family said in a statement.

“His unique achievements as an athlete and entrepreneur are and will remain unforgettable,” the statement, published by Austrian media, said.

“His tireless zest for action, his straightforwardness and his courage remain a role model and a benchmark for all of us, he was a loving and caring husband, father and grandfather away from the public, and he will be missed.”

Lauda won two world championships in 1975 and 1977 with Ferrari and a third in 1984 with McLaren.

He had a near-fatal crash in 1976 when racing at the Nürburgring but despite suffering serious burns, he was soon back in his Ferrari with a modified helmet and went on to claim his second F1 title.

His rivalry with British driver James Hunt, the 1976 champion for McLaren, was intense and became the subject of the acclaimed 2013 film “Rush”.

After two less successful years at rival outfit Brabham and then a two-year hiatus, Lauda returned to F1 for another four seasons at McLaren and won the 1984 title by a half-point over team mate Alain Prost.

While taking his first break after Brabham, Lauda set up a charter airline and returned to his aviation business full-time after bowing out of racing.

Through the 1980s and 1990s, he grew ‘Lauda Air’ into an international carrier with long-haul flights out of Austria across the globe before it was merged into Austrian Airlines in 2012.

Lauda also returned to F1 in management roles, first with Ferrari in the 1990s and later with Mercedes, where he was appointed non-executive chairman in 2012.

He is credited for helping bring five-times F1 champion Lewis Hamilton to the team from McLaren.

Lauda’s death rocked the F1 community days before the Monaco Grand Prix, the jewel in the circuit’s racing calendar.

“All at McLaren are deeply saddened to learn that our friend, colleague and 1984 Formula 1 World Champion, Niki Lauda, has passed away,” the team said.

“Niki will forever be in our hearts and enshrined in our history.”

British former F1 champion Jenson Button, who won a title with Brawn GP in 2009, tweeted: “A legend has left us. Rest in peace Niki.”

Dev Group Unc0ver Confirms iOS 12.2 Jailbreak Releasing Soon: Here’s How To Prepare

Ardent jailbreak fans got a whiff fresh air in recent days, all the thanks to the announcement made by the hacking group unc0ver. The team of developers practically confirmed the imminent arrival of an unlocking tool that by design will work on iPhones and iPads running iOS 12.2.

The development is certainly a piece of good news given that members of the jailbreak community are still on iOS jailbreak 12.1.2, provided by unc0ver and fellow hacking actor Chimera, and any promise of stepping up is welcome. So the Twitter tease from unc0ver stalwart @Pwn20wnd naturally generated ripples of excitement.

“Save blobs for iOS 12.2 and do not upgrade if you are interested in a jailbreak,” the dev’s tweet was reported by Redmond Pie as saying.

It was clear that the tweet was in response to Apple’s deployment of iOS 12.3, which @Pwn20wnd said is a no-go zone for would-be jailbreak installers. The message was clear and it says that if one intends to experience how liberating the next jailbreak tool is then it’s hands off on the latest official iOS version from Apple.

On this subject, Forbes is in full agreement and even confirmed that Apple’s latest mobile OS version “breaks jailbroken devices.”

“There has been some progress jailbreaking recent iOS updates, but you’ll need to stay away from this one for now,” the publication further stated.

However, the hint from @Pwn20wnd was vague on the exact release date and can only mean that jailbreak fans need to watch for upcoming updates from any of the unc0ver personnel. It’s a good thing though that the dev has established an important fact – that the group is working on a possible solution and once the final cut is out it will be an upgrade from version 12.1.2.

Another important thing suggested by the @Pwn20wnd tweet is the one crucial move that jailbreak fans must do now. They need to save their SHSH2 blobs in order to ensure they’d be eligible for the iOS 12.2 jailbreak release.

It’s only a matter of time and Apple will stop signing 12.2 and when that happens then a rollback is next to impossible. But with blobs dutifully saved, rolling back from 12.3 or stepping up to 12.2 will never be an issue. Jailbreak fans, therefore, need to pay heed on the @Pwn20wnd advisory.

In any case, jailbreaking iPhones and iPads to run the modified version of iOS 12.2 is now a near possibility and most likely the tool will originate from unc0ver. It might be that some other dev groups are in possession of exploits that will lead them to a fully-working jailbreak solution but it appears at the moment that @Pwn20wnd and his crew are steps ahead of the pack.

Bereaved Asif Ali to play in World Cup

Asif Ali will play in the World Cup despite the death of his daughter on Sunday. Asif was called up to Pakistan’s 15-man squad for the World Cup on Monday, having missed out on the original squad a month ago.

He was selected on the back of some impressive performances during the England series, where two fifties contributed to a total of 142 runs (in four innings) but, more importantly, at a strike rate of 131.48. Those runs, and the speed at which they came, filled a gaping hole in Pakistan’s middle order, which has long cried out for a power-hitter of Asif’s capabilities.

But the joy of his selection would have been drowned out by the tragic news of his 19-month-old daughter passing away in the United States of America on Sunday, after a fairly long battle against illness.

Asif will exit the squad for now, and arrangements are being made for him to travel to the US if needed. But at the moment, he is scheduled to be back for Pakistan’s World Cup campaign, which begins with a game against West Indies on May 31 at Trent Bridge.

“Dropping Abid Ali [to make way for Asif’s selection] was a very difficult decision,” Inzamam-ul-Haq, Pakistan’s chief selector, said on Monday. “But we needed a power-hitter at number 6 or 7 and Asif has done very well for us in this England series so we need him.

“He is scheduled to be back in time for our warm-up games where we intend to play our full-strength XI, but if he cannot make it back in time for those, we will wait for him whenever he does return.”

Abid was the third opener in the provisional World Cup squad, back up for Imam-ul-Haq and Fakhar Zaman, but Inzamam said that with either of Mohammad Hafeez or Haris Sohail – who are both in the squad – could also be options if another opener was needed.

Trump, Saudi Arabia warn Iran against Middle East conflict

RIYADH (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump issued a new threat to Tehran on Sunday, tweeting that a conflict would be the “official end” of Iran, as Saudi Arabia warned it stood ready to respond with “all strength” and said it was up to Iran to avoid war.

The heightened rhetoric follows last week’s attacks on Saudi oil assets and the firing of a rocket on Sunday into Baghdad’s heavily fortified “Green Zone” that exploded near the U.S. embassy.

“If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran. Never threaten the United States again!” Trump said in a tweet without elaborating.

A U.S. State Department official said the rocket attack in Baghdad did not hit a U.S.-inhabited facility and produced no casualties nor any significant damage. No claims of responsibility had been made, but the United States was taking the incident “very seriously.”

“We have made clear over the past two weeks and again underscore that attacks on U.S. personnel and facilities will not be tolerated and will be responded to in a decisive manner,” the official said in an emailed statement. “We will hold Iran responsible if any such attacks are conducted by its proxy militia forces or elements of such forces, and will respond to Iran accordingly.”

Riyadh, which emphasized that it does not want a war, has accused Tehran of ordering Tuesday’s drone strikes on two oil pumping stations in the kingdom, claimed by Yemen’s Iran-aligned Houthi group. Two days earlier, four vessels, including two Saudi oil tankers, were sabotaged off the coast of the United Arab Emirates.

In response, countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) began “enhanced security patrols” in the international waters of the Arabian Gulf area on Saturday, the U.S. Navy’s Bahrain-based Fifth Fleet said on Sunday.

Iran has denied involvement in either incident, which come as Washington and the Islamic Republic spar over sanctions and the U.S. military presence in the region, raising concerns about a potential U.S.-Iran conflict.

“The kingdom of Saudi Arabia does not want a war in the region nor does it seek that,” Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel al-Jubeir told a news conference on Sunday.

“It will do what it can to prevent this war and at the same time it reaffirms that in the event the other side chooses war, the kingdom will respond with all force and determination, and it will defend itself and its interests.”

Saudi Arabia’s King Salman on Sunday invited Gulf and Arab leaders to convene emergency summits in Mecca on May 30 to discuss implications of the attacks.

“The current critical circumstances entail a unified Arab and Gulf stance toward the besetting challenges and risks,” the UAE foreign ministry said in a statement.

The U.S. Navy’s Fifth Fleet said in its statement about increased maritime patrols that GCC countries were “specifically increasing communication and coordination with each other in support of regional naval cooperation and maritime security operations in the Arabian Gulf,” with navies and coast guards working with the U.S. Navy.

Saudi Arabia’s Sunni Muslim ally the UAE has not blamed anyone for the tanker sabotage operation, pending an investigation. No-one has claimed responsibility, but two U.S. government sources said last week that U.S. officials believed Iran had encouraged the Houthi group or Iraq-based Shi’ite militias to carry it out.

The drone strike on oil pumping stations, which Riyadh said did not disrupt output or exports, was claimed by the Houthis, who have been battling a Saudi-led military coalition in a war in Yemen since 2015.

The Houthi-controlled SABA news agency said on Sunday, citing a military source from the group, that targeting Aramco’s installations last week was the beginning of coming military operations against 300 vital military targets.

Targets include vital military headquarters and facilities in the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, as well as their bases in Yemen, the source told SABA.

The head of the Houthis’ Supreme Revolutionary Committee, Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, derided Riyadh’s call to convene Arab summits, saying in a Twitter post that they “only know how to support war and destruction”.

A Norwegian insurers’ report seen by Reuters said Iran’s Revolutionary Guards were “highly likely” to have facilitated the attack on vessels near the UAE’s Fujairah emirate, a main bunkering hub lying just outside the Strait of Hormuz.

SAUDI PRINCE CALLS POMPEO

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has dismissed the possibility of war erupting, saying Tehran did not want conflict and no country had the “illusion it can confront Iran”. This stance was echoed by the head of Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards on Sunday.

“We are not pursuing war but we are also not afraid of war,” Major General Hossein Salami was cited as saying by the semi-official news agency Tasnim.

Washington has tightened economic sanctions against Iran, trying to cut Tehran’s oil exports to zero, and beefed up the U.S. military presence in the Gulf in response to what it said were Iranian threats to United States troops and interests.

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman discussed regional developments, including efforts to strengthen security and stability, in a phone call with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the Saudi Media Ministry tweeted on Sunday.

“We want peace and stability in the region but we will not sit on our hands in light of the continuing Iranian attack,” Jubeir said. “The ball is in Iran’s court and it is up to Iran to determine what its fate will be.”

He said the crew of an Iranian oil tanker that had been towed to Saudi Arabia early this month after a request for help due to engine trouble were still in the kingdom receiving the “necessary care”. The crew are 24 Iranians and two Bangladeshis.

Saudi Arabia and Shi’ite Iran are arch-adversaries in the Middle East, backing opposite sides in several regional wars. In a sign of the heightened tension, Exxon Mobil evacuated foreign staff from an oilfield in neighbouring Iraq.

Bahrain on Saturday warned its citizens against travel to Iraq and Iran and asked those already there to return. The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has issued an advisory to U.S. commercial airliners flying over the waters of the Gulf and the Gulf of Oman to exercise caution.

Farhan Akhtar earlier made headlines today for encouraging the junta of Bhopal to cast the right vote during Bhopal elections. The actor tweeted – ‘Dear electorate of Bhopal, it’s time for you to save your city from another full-of-gas tragedy.
#SayNoToPragya #SayNoToGodse #RememberTheMahatma #ChooseLoveNotHate’. Check our the actor’s tweet on the same!

Minutes after his tweet, Farhan Akhtar got brutally trolled by Twitteratis for not having knowledge of Bhopal elections which were contested a week before. Here are some tweets by Twitter users to Farhan Akhtar:

After being massively trolled by Twitteratis, Farhan Akhtar took to Twitter to give an epic reply to them. The actor wrote – ‘Humne taareek galat samjhi toh galaa pakad liya,

Jisne itihaas galat samjha use galey laga rahe ho. #priorities’.

However it looks like the trollers are still not over Farhan Akhtar’s mistake. After this tweet of the actor, Twitteratis continued trolling him and here are some examples:

While Farhan Akhtar has admitted his mistake, looks like social media is not a good place at times because people don’t easily forget the mistake once done by famous personalities and continue to troll in abusive language. With some pros comes cons of social media and at this moment, Farhan Akhtar is bearing the brunt as an actor!

Afghanistan opted to bowl in the first of two ODIs against Ireland in Belfast, their tune-up series before they get to the 2019 World Cup. Having undergone a camp in South Africa and played against Scotland, Afghanistan have arrived in Ireland with a full-strength squad.

Mujeeb Ur Rahman, who has recovered from a finger injury sustained in the IPL, will be the third spinner in their XI alongside Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi. Rashid and Nabi, too, missed the Scotland game because of their commitments with Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL.

This is Afghanistan’s second ODI following their sudden captaincy switch that had Gulbadin Naib replacing Asghar Afghan at the helm.

As for Ireland, they didn’t make the final of their home tri-series against Bangladesh and West Indies, but have two more opportunities to showcase their abilities and, perhaps, even topple a World Cup-bound side.

Ireland made two changes. Tim Murtagh and Andy McBrine replaced Barry McCarthy and the injured Josh Little. This meant they featured two spinners, with McBrine joining the experienced George Dockrell.

Ireland: 1 Paul Stirling, 2 James McCollum, 3 Andrew Balbirnie, 4 William Porterfield (capt), 5 Kevin O’Brien, 6 Mark Adair, 7 Gary Wilson (wk), 8 George Dockrell, 9 Tim Murtagh, 10 Boyd Rankin, 11 Andy McBrine

Afghanistan: 1 Mohammad Shahzad (wk), 2 Hazratullah Zazai, 3 Rahmat Shah, 4 Hashmatullah Shahidi, 5 Asghar Afghan, 6 Gulbadin Naib (capt), 7 Mohammad Nabi, 8 Rashid Khan, 9 Dawlat Zadran, 10 Aftab Alam, 11 Mujeeb Ur Rahman

Soccer: Man City crush Watford 6-0 to complete treble in style

May

LONDON (Reuters) – Majestic Manchester City crushed Watford 6-0 in the FA Cup final on Saturday to become the first team to win the English treble of league championship and both domestic cups in the most emphatic way imaginable.

The victory matched the competition’s record final win — set when Bury beat Derby County 116 years ago — and was the perfect end to an amazing season for unarguably one of the finest teams to grace the long history of the English game.

Coming after they retained the Premier League title last week and won the League Cup in a penalty shootout over Chelsea, City’s sixth FA Cup triumph made them the eighth team to win the prized League and FA Cup double and first since Chelsea in 2010.

Raheem Sterling was initially credited with a hat-trick, only for his first goal to later be awarded to Gabriel Jesus, who also got two as City ended their 61-game season with 169 goals, beating their own previous best of 156.

“It was an incredible final for us and we have finished an incredible year,” City manager Pep Guardiola said. “The players deserve all the recognition. To have gone 10 months in all competitions and be the first team to do that is incredible.”

City, 2-0 up at halftime through David Silva and Jesus, effectively sealed the deal when Kevin de Bruyne came off the bench to smash in the third after 61 minutes.

Jesus slotted the fourth before Sterling, who was brought up in the shadow of the stadium, took centre stage with two in the last 10 minutes.

“I grew up here and saw this stadium get built. It’s a massive dream come true to win trophies here,” said the England winger.

“It shows what the manager is building here. He said we needed to get the mentality right and we did that and did it exceptionally well.”

Other than one early chance for Roberto Pereyra, Watford never looked remotely capable of ending their 30-year winless run against City in their second appearance in the final having lost to Everton in 1984.

“We knew we had to play the perfect game and started well but they were better, congratulations to them,” said Watford coach Javi Gracia, whose team finished 11th in the league, 48 points behind the champions.

LONG SHOT

It always looked a long shot for them to deliver a classic Cup upset. City had beaten Watford in the teams’ last 10 meetings, scoring 32 goals in the process, while Watford’s last win in the fixture came in 1989 in the old Second Division.

The underdogs did have the first clear chance after 11 minutes when Pereyra shot from the edge of the box but Ederson flew off his line to save with his foot and that proved their high-water mark.

There was an air of inevitability when City struck after 26 minutes as diminutive duo Silva and Sterling won headers against big Watford defenders, allowing Silva to seize on the loose ball and fire past Heurelho Gomes.

They doubled the lead when Bernardo Silva supplied Jesus, starting ahead of the unused Sergio Aguero, to steer the ball goalwards.

His hooked shot looked to have crossed the line, but Sterling lashed it into the net to make sure – initially being given the goal before the FA changed its mind an hour after the match.

Following a brief attacking flurry at the start of the second half, Watford’s hope was extinguished when City broke at pace and De Bruyne drilled in the third five minutes after coming off on to the pitch.

Watford, too late, threw men forward and were exposed when Jesus broke from his own half to tuck in the fourth. Bernardo Silva was the provider again as Sterling arrived at the back post to smash in the fifth and the local boy fittingly finished things off three minutes from time.

After also winning the Premier League and League Cup last season, City have now lifted five of the past six available domestic trophies.

The one blip is their failure to again make even the semi-finals of the Champions League – something that will nag at Guardiola throughout the summer but ensure he and his team come back full of vigour in August.

“What a team this is,” said Bernardo Silva. “Now it is time to rest, to celebrate and next season we will try and win it all again.”

Also celebrating on Saturday were Wolverhampton Wanderers, who will now qualify for the Europa league via their seventh-place finish in the Premier League.

Ben Coad six-for ends Kent resistance as Yorkshire take points

Yorkshire 210 (Milnes 3-63) and 469 (Ballance 159, Leaning 69) beat Kent 296 (Robinson 103, Crawley 81, Coad 3-66) and 211 (Coad 6-52) by 172 runs

Prolonged Kent resistance eventually counted for little as Yorkshire’s persistent attack mopped up the seven wickets required to secure a 172-run Specsavers County Championship win in Canterbury. Facing an improbable victory target of 384, the hosts did superbly well to take the match into its final session before White Rose seamer Ben Coad mopped up the tail with a season’s best 6 for 52.

The fourth day started with a stoical fourth-wicket stand between Daniel Bell-Drummond and Fred Klaassen which frustrated the Tykes’ attack throughout the opening session in adding 54 runs inside 34 overs either side of lunch. Yorkshire finally broke through soon after the resumption when Klassen, the 26-year-old nightwatchman making his Championship debut for Kent, steered one from Duanne Olivier to second slip to end his two-and-a-half hour, 110-ball stay for 13.

Hampered by the loss of Tim Bresnan to a calf injury – the former England seamer slipped over when delivering his first ball of day and limped off after completing only two overs – Yorkshire’s attack continued to chip away to pick up three more wickets in the mid-session.

Interim Kent captain Heino Kuhn, who has one first-class fifty to date this season, went for a seven-ball duck when nicking to second slip after an ugly, low-handed defensive prod. Bell-Drummond, who offered two chances that were both dropped in the cordon by Lyth, moved past 5000 first-class career runs during his 170-minute stay and was nine short of a battling fifty when he played across one from Steven Patterson to go lbw.

Then, after being checked out for concussion following a fearsome blow on the helmet from an Olivier bouncer, Kent’s first innings century-maker Ollie Robinson drove a slower ball away-swinger from Coad to Gary Ballance at cover to make it 142 for 7.

Alex Blake and Harry Podmore resisted for 22 overs either side of tea until the introduction of offspinner Jack Leaning accounted for Blake, leg before when prodding outside the line of an arm-ball. With 24 overs remaining Yorkshire took the second new ball through Coad and Olivier, but Podmore and Matt Milnes continued Kent’s defiance into the final hour of the match.

Moments later, Coad ran one up the slope to pluck out Podmore’s middle stump for 29, scored in a shade under two hours then, in his next over same bowler had last man Mitch Claydon caught at short leg to secure victory with 15.1 overs to spare.

Coad led the bowling plaudits with six wickets, to go with his two previous five-wicket hauls this summer, and Olivier 2 for 92 in clinching unbeaten Yorkshire’s second win of the campaign that takes them to second spot in the table. After their second defeat on returning to Division One Kent slip to fifth.

U.S. Treasury’s Mnuchin rejects subpoena for Trump tax returns

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin defied a congressional subpoena seeking six years of President Donald Trump’s tax returns on Friday, all but guaranteeing a federal court battle with Congress over the records.

In a widely expected move, Mnuchin rejected a demand for the documents from House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal, saying the panel lacks “a legitimate legislative purpose” for obtaining the tax records that Democrats view as critical to their efforts to investigate Trump and his presidency.

“We are unable to provide the requested information in response to the committee’s subpoena,” Mnuchin said in a letter to Neal, released ahead of a 5 p.m. EDT (2100 GMT) deadline for delivering the documents.

Neal later issued a statement, saying he was “consulting with counsel on how best to enforce the subpoenas moving forward.”

Hours earlier, the Democratic chairman had said he was inclined to turn to federal court to obtain Trump’s tax returns, if the administration missed the deadline. “We will likely proceed to court as quickly as next week,” Neal had told reporters.

Asked whether he would also pursue contempt charges against administration officials, Neal told reporters: “I don’t see that right now as an option. I think that the better option for us is to proceed with a court case.”

Trump’s refusal to cooperate in numerous congressional probes of him, his family and his presidency is forcing Democrats, who control the House of Representatives, to look to the courts to enforce their oversight powers under the U.S. Constitution.

The likely decision to avoid contempt proceedings disappointed some Democrats on Neal’s tax panel.

“This is a way for some congressmen to go south on the issue: leave it to the courts. It really absents us from our responsibilities,” said Representative Bill Pascrell, who helped lead the push to obtain Trump’s tax returns.

OTHER DEMOCRATS MOVE TOWARD CONTEMPT

Unlike Neal, other top Democrats faced with administration defiance over inquiries have moved toward contempt charges.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler’s panel voted last week to recommend that the House cite Attorney General William Barr with contempt of Congress for defying a subpoena for U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s unredacted Russia investigation report.

Trump’s decision to assert executive privilege over Mueller-related material last week has stymied efforts by Democrats to get current and former members of the executive branch to testify, including Mueller himself, according to congressional aides.

Democrats had sought to have Mueller testify by May 23, but sources familiar with the matter said on Friday that Mueller was unlikely to appear before the committee.

Democrats could move forward with more contempt citations as early as next week. Nadler has threatened to hold former White House counsel Don McGahn in contempt, if he fails to show up for a hearing slated for Tuesday.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff is also planning “enforcement action” against the Justice Department over a separate Mueller-related subpoena.

Democratic leaders are considering bundling separate contempt citations into a single House of Representatives package to bring to a floor vote later this year.

On Wednesday, White House counsel Pat Cipollone sent a letter to Nadler, saying Congress has no right to conduct a “do-over” of Mueller’s Russia probe, and that it would not participate in his committee’s investigation.

But congressional pressure on Trump is only expected to intensify.

Schiff’s committee meets on Monday to release closed-door testimony by former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, who is in prison. Cohen talked to the panel in March about issues including Trump’s involvement in pursuing a Moscow tower project during the 2016 presidential election. Trump at the time publicly denied any links to Russia.

On Thursday, House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings announced another probe into the Trump administration, targeting what Cummings called “secret ethics waivers” allowing political appointees to continue working on matters they worked on before entering government.

In a statement, Cummings said he had requested that the administration turn over copies of waivers for political appointees to let them conduct official business, despite potential conflicts of interest.

Gary Ballance dominates to put Yorkshire firmly in control against Kent

Yorkshire 210 and 469 (Ballance 159, Leaning 69) lead Kent 296 and 34 for 3 (Coad 2-17) by 349 runs

Former England batsman Gary Ballance dominated centre stage for almost six-and-a-half hours to put Yorkshire in total control of their Specsavers County Championship match with Kent in Canterbury.

In ideal batting conditions at the Spitfire Ground, St Lawrence, and on a pitch deadened by third-morning use of the heavy roller, the 29-year-old left-hander hit 25 boundaries in a season’s best 159 from 291 balls as Yorkshire amassed 469 for a lead of 383 runs.

In the day’s 10 remaining overs, the hosts lost Sean Dickson only eight balls into the reply. Having been hit of the bicep by a fierce no ball bumper from Duanne Olivier, Dickson turned the next delivery to Harry Brook under the helmet at short leg.

In the fifth over, Zak Crawley, on nine, pushed half-forward and outside the line of a Ben Coad off-cutter to go lbw, then in his next over, Coad ripped out the off and leg stumps of Matt Renshaw with another low-bouncing off-cutter to end the Australian Test batsman’s final innings of his disappointing Kent stay.

The hosts suffered no further alarms and went in at stumps on 34 for 3 with Daniel Bell-Drummond yet to get off the mark and night watchman Fred Klaassen not out 3. They will require a further 350 for victory on the final day but, with the pitch showing signs of variable bounce, their target already seems highly improbable.

Earlier, Ballance and fourth-wicket partner Jack Leaning batted throughout the morning session without alarm and went on to add 188 in 61 overs either side of lunch with Leaning reaching his 50 from 168 balls and with 10 fours. The stand ended in the mid-session when Leaning, on 69, played across one from Matt Milnes to become only the second leg before victim of the game.

Zimbabe-born Ballance had reached three figures from 196 balls and with 18 fours for his third championship ton of the season following hundreds against Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge and Hampshire at The Ageas Bowl, both in April .

It was the 38th hundred of Ballance’s first-class career and his fourth in consecutive Championship matches having finished last season’s campaign with a century against Worcestershire. Ballance finally succumbed after playing back to a shooting off-cutter from Bell-Drummond that slid down the Canterbury slope to hit near the base of the sumps.

Despite taking the second new ball, Kent still struggled to roll over the Tykes tail and the majority made double-digit contributions.

After tea, Jon Tattersall sparred at a Milnes leg-cutter to be caught behind, Tim Bresnan chopped on when attempting a back-foot force, and three balls later, Steven Patterson perished in near identical fashion.

Dom Bess miscued a short one from Harry Podmore to mid-on and Ben Coad, after a career-best 35, skied to point to give Podmore a second wicket.

Mitchell Claydon finished with 3 for 83 on a day Kent’s bowlers will care to forget.

Australian government on course for election defeat: poll

SYDNEY (Reuters) – Australian politicians scrambled to win over undecided voters on Friday, the last day of a general election campaign that has ended in mourning for one of the country’s most popular leaders.

Former prime minister Bob Hawke died on Thursday. A transformative, charismatic left-wing politician who served as prime minister from 1983 to 1991, Hawke was 89.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Labor leader Bill Shorten both sought to strike a sombre, more cordial tone on Friday, as a closely watched poll showed Labor was going in to Saturday’s election with a slight advantage.

“He was a great Australian. And he was a much-loved Australian. It is a life to be celebrated. And I’ll certainly be doing that today, later this afternoon, and raising a glass in his honour,” Morrison said of Hawke, in comments to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

Shorten promised not to be too rough on his opponent as his party honoured its longest-serving prime minister.

Shorten was likely feeling a bit more comfortable about his chances on Saturday with an Ipsos poll for the Sydney Morning Herald and the Age newspapers showing Labor ahead of Morrison’s coalition by a margin of 51-49 on a two-party preferred basis where votes are distributed until a winner is declared.

Should Labor win, Australia will be likely get its seventh prime minister since 2010.

The Ipsos findings echo similar polls as Morrison fails to woo voters with a campaign centred on his government’s projection to deliver Australia’s first budget surplus in more than 10 years.

Labor, which lost the last two elections in 2013 and 2016, has promised to match the government’s 2019-20 surplus and then deliver a bigger surplus in 2020-21.

Labor’s fiscal plan has undercut a typical strength for Morrison, and Shorten has also won favour with voters by promising to address to inequality.

Hackers Successfully Jailbreak Apple iOS 12.1.3-12.2 But Public Release Highly Unlikely

Jailbreak fans will certainly welcome this as a piece of good news – that the tightly-secured Apple mobile operating system has been unlocked again following the showcasing of modified iOS 12.1.3 and 12.2 running on a liberated iPhone XS Max. But there is a catch as reports said public release of the tool is unlikely to happen, ever.

This latest solution was the handiwork of security researcher Liang Chen, who is known as part of famed developers KeenLabs. The group demoed the jailbreak at the Infiltrate 2019 and what was showcased was nothing short of impressive. It was a total working package that includes the important PAC and APRR bypass.

And to further convince that the jailbroken iOS 12.1.3-12.2 is indeed usable, its maker, Liang, showed off Cydia running on an iPhone XS Max. It was a solid proof that work is ready for deployment anytime and jailbreak fans can enjoy its full features and functionalities.

However, it is a big question mark if Liang intends to get the solution out for free access. The new exploit following the path of iOS 12 jailbreaks Electra and Unc0ver seems a remote possibility given the track record of KeenLabs, which is better known for their enterprising ventures.

What Liang has done was characterized as a mere technical exercise, exclusively meant to demonstrate that iOS 12 from versions 12.1.3 all the way to 12.2 are with existing exploits and therefore open for tinkering and manipulation.

Liang and KeenLabs though sharing their findings freely to iOS jailbreak fans will be out of character. Previously, the group’s jailbreak efforts have been motivated by the promise of monetary rewards and this latest breakthrough will not deviate from their reputation.

The most likely scenario is KeenLabs will call Apple’s attention on the discovered exploits, which means the iPhone maker will eventually close the door that was opened for a public jailbreak. In exchange, of course, the security research group will collect the corresponding reward.

It’s possible too that the jailbreak from Liang is a commissioned work, indicating that a third-party that paid a hefty price was the intended beneficiary. If not, it should be easy for KeenLabs to auction off the product in order to maximize profit.

In the end, the new jailbreak will not lead to a public and freely accessible release. But the good thing is it has been proven anew that Apple’s iOS security protocols can be pried open for vulnerabilities by those willing to dig deep enough. It only follows that perhaps in due time, a new iOS 12 jailbreak version will be shared at no cost to the world, courtesy of a more altruistic developer.
