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

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.

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.

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.

Could never have dreamt of playing so many World Cups

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Could never have dreamt of playing so many World Cups

When Chris Gayle returned to the West Indies squad in September 2017, it was just in time, with the 2018 World Cup qualifiers in sight. Since then, with qualification sealed, he’s had a sensational year of ODI batting, the peak coming during the home performances against England – two hundreds and two fifties in four matches – earlier this year.

He now has the IPL out of the way, and is set to play in what would be his fifth World Cup. That’s every World Cup held since his ODI debut in September 1999.

“Honestly [I do it for] the fans, I am not going to lie. Maybe a couple of years ago the thought did cross [that I have had enough],” he said to Press Trust of India. Then the fans came out and said ‘don’t go’. They actually drive me to go on. I know nothing lasts forever and hopefully, I can give them a few more games and it also pushes you to win the World Cup.”

Gayle’s making the team in his 20th year at this level is a remarkable feat, made doubly impressive by the fact that he had 30 months of no ODI cricket after West Indies’ quarter-final exit in the 2015 World Cup.

“Never really considered thinking about it but time does fly quickly,” Gayle said. “I could never dream of playing so many World Cups but it has happened. It shows consistency in the career. That keeps you going and earn a lot of praise. Hard work in the last couple of has years paid off. People want to see you more and you are trying to deliver as much as possible.”

Among the challenges – and a direct reason for that 30-month hiatus after 2015 – was the well-documented stand-off between players and board in the West Indies, an issue that continues to make several elite players from the region stay freelancers. A robust change has taken place recently, however, with the appointment of Ricky Skerritt as Cricket West Indies president. And with increasing success on the field under the captaincy of Jason Holder, there seems to be a decided step to move on from all parties involved. Gayle is optimistic about the progress.

“We have seen changes [in the cricket board] in the last couple of months,” he said. “Hopefully, the new team gets it right, gets the structure in place. Cricket is the most important thing for the Caribbean. Hope they take the game to where it is supposed to be.

“It will take time, of course. Lot of things need to be rebuilt. On the field, we had a good series against England, now the World Cup is coming up and that is another opportunity for us to turn things around.”

Thai anti-junta leader says ‘no giving up’ on forming next government

Posted Posted by Admin in News     Comments Comments Off on Thai anti-junta leader says ‘no giving up’ on forming next government

BANGKOK (Reuters) – An alliance of Thai anti-junta parties is not giving up on forming the country’s next government and blocking the ruling junta from retaining power following a disputed March election, a leader of a key member party said on Wednesday.

Thailand’s March 24 election pitted the pro-army Palang Pracharat party, which seeks to keep junta leader Prayuth Chan-ocha in power, against the Democratic Front of seven parties that wants the military out of politics.

Results published last week showed Palang Pracharat winning 115 seats in the 500-member lower House of Representatives. Along with Senate votes and allies, this could be enough to form the government.

The opposition alliance won 245 lower house seats.

But after what he called “a definitely not free and not fair election,” Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit, leader of the anti-junta Future Forward Party said all hope was not lost.

“For anti-junta parties, the effort to form the new government is still there. There is no giving up, no white flag at the moment,” Thanathorn said during an event at the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Thailand.

“Anything is still on the table and anything is still possible.”

His comments came a day after Thailand published an official list of 250 senators, who were entirely appointed by the junta and will vote with the House of Representatives to choose the next prime minister.

The list showed more than a third have military or police backgrounds and nearly half have existing ties with the junta, which seized power in a 2014 coup.

Electoral rules make it nearly impossible for the opposition to overcome the Senate’s vote to form its own government under a post-coup constitution ratified in 2017, which was criticized as entrenching military influence in Thai politics.

If all 250 senators vote the same way, Prayuth’s party, whose allies already hold 19 seats, will have just over the 376 required in the combined House-Senate vote to approve him as prime minister.

But Thanathorn said he was “very hopeful” about the anti-junta coalition forming the government and that the Senate could be swayed if the Democratic Front can form a strong majority.

“If we could form a strong, solid government in the lower house, the senators won’t vote against it. The pressure is on them if they vote against the voice of the people, and I don’t think they have the courage to do that,” Thanathorn told Reuters.

But even if the anti-junta alliance failed, the future of democracy in Thailand still looked “very positive,” Thanathorn said.

“We lose this election but we’re not losing the game,” he said.

“This is a long journey. It’s not about this election. It’s going to take decades… It’s going to be a long road.”

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.

Ireland opt to bat; McCarthy replaces Murtagh

Toss Ireland opt to bat v Bangladesh

Ireland captain William Porterfield chose to bat first against Bangladesh in their final league fixture of the tri-series. Porterfield hoped to follow a similar template to the one against West indies: bat first, bat big and try to defend.

Ireland brought in Barry McCarthy in place of Tim Murtagh.

Bangladesh Soumya Sarkar, Mohammad Mithun, Mehidy Hasan Miraz and Mustafizur Rahman. This meant there was an opportunity for Liton Das to open with Tamim Iqbal. There were opportunities for Mosaddek Hossain, Mohammad Saifuddin and Rubel Hossain too.

Saifuddin’s return is encouraging, as his selection means a quick recovery from back spasm that he picked up prior to Bangladesh’s previous outing.

Bangladesh: 1 Tamim Iqbal, 2 Liton Das, 3 Shakib Al Hasan, 4 Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), 5 Mahmudullah, 6 Sabbir Rahman, 7 Mosaddak Hossain, 8 Mohammad Saifuddin, 9 Mashrafe Mortaza, 10 Rubel Hossain, 11 Abu Jayed

Ireland: 1 Paul Stirling, 2 James McCollum, Andy Balbirnie, 5 William Porterfield (capt), 6 Kevin O’Brien, 6 Mark Adair, 7 Gary Wilson (wk), 8 George Dockrell, 9 Boyd Rankin, 10 Barry McCarthy, 11 Josh Little

Pakistan opponents of death row Christian’s blasphemy acquittal get bail

LAHORE, Pakistan (Reuters) – A Pakistani court on Tuesday granted bail to the leader of an ultra-right Islamist group arrested last year after his supporters shut down cities and threatened judges following the acquittal of a Christian woman accused of blasphemy.

The leader of the Tehreek-e-Labbaik (TLP) party, Khadim Hussain Rizvi, and his deputy, Pir Afzal Qadri, were arrested last year and charged with inciting terrorism and sedition after protesting against the acquittal of Asia Bibi who had spent eight years on death row on blasphemy charges.

“Today, the Lahore High Court has granted bail to Rizvi and Qadri in the cases of terrorism, sedition and inciting for violence,” TLP lawyer Muhammad Arif Awan told Reuters.

Bibi left for Canada last week after living at an undisclosed location inside Pakistan since her acquittal. Hardline Islamists in Pakistan had rallied against her being allowed to leave and called for her to be killed.

Rizvi’s November arrest led to clashes between police and his supporters in the eastern city of Lahore, wounding five people in violence authorities say was instigated by the TLP leader after he called on his faithful to take to the streets if he was arrested.

The two men are due to be released on Wednesday.

TLP leaders had threatened the Supreme Court judges who acquitted Bibi, urging their cooks and servants to kill them, and called for the overthrow of the army chief, an unthinkable comment in Pakistan where the military is rarely criticized in public and the army normally does not tolerate such dissent.

The TLP, whose main focus is protecting Pakistan’s draconian blasphemy laws, was founded out of a movement supporting a bodyguard who assassinated Punjab provincial governor Salman Taseer for advocating for Bibi in 2011.

Blasphemy is a deeply emotive issue in Pakistan’s staunchly religious society, and officials have been unnerved by how much support Rizvi’s TLP has garnered across the country in the two years since the group entered mainstream politics.
