Salaam Cricket 2017: I loved entertaining and have no regrets, says Shane Warne

first_imgShane Warne said he was happy to have played under great Australian captains Allan Border and Mark Taylor.Shane Warne, the legendary leg-spinner, is the best captain Australia never had but the iconic bowler has absolutely no regrets.Speaking at Aaj Tak Salaam Cricket 2017 , Warne, who finished with 708 wickets, never got to lead Australia. As he showed with Rajasthan Royals in the twilight of his career, Warnie could have been a great tactical captain.But several factors, not necessarily related to cricket, kept Warne away from the Aussie hot-seat.But the word regret has no place in Shane Warne’s dictionary .”I always wanted to go out there, do my best, let my character show and entertain. I am an entertainer and I want to be remembered for everything I did – I have no regrets.”Whenever I was captain, players enjoyed playing under me. It would have been nice to captain Australia but it did not happen.”I played under some great captains for Australia.”Allan Border and Mark Taylor were outstanding captains. Taylor was the best captain I played under, Border showed me what toughness was. I think the others guys Steve Waugh and Ricky Ponting inherited very good sides,” Warne said.Contrary to what many players do, Warne read everything that appeared in the newspapers about him rather than waiting for someone else to come and tell him what was being written about him.”I used to read everything – it’s always worse when your friends tell you what others are writing about you. If it was someone who wrote an article I respected, I would go and find them and have a general conversation  about them. I never played to prove anyone wrong.”advertisementOn a lighter note, Warne admitted he had to read both the celebrity and sports pages because “I was in both.” Also Read:SalaamCricket 2017: Differences between captain, coach common everywhere due togeneration gap, says Sunil Gavaskarlast_img read more

Collaboration Needed to Promote Health and Wellness in Schools – Dr. Tufton

first_img Addressing a Ministry of Education, Youth and Information Parent Sensitisation Session at Montego Bay High School on August 23, the Minister said this is necessary to prevent non-communicable diseases (NCDs), as the nation’s children are becoming more vulnerable at an earlier age. Story Highlights Minister of Health, Dr. the Hon. Christopher Tufton, says a collaborative effort is needed from all stakeholders to promote health and wellness in Jamaican schools.center_img Minister of Health, Dr. the Hon. Christopher Tufton, says a collaborative effort is needed from all stakeholders to promote health and wellness in Jamaican schools.Addressing a Ministry of Education, Youth and Information Parent Sensitisation Session at Montego Bay High School on August 23, the Minister said this is necessary to prevent non-communicable diseases (NCDs), as the nation’s children are becoming more vulnerable at an earlier age.“Our children are increasingly becoming obese. Frankly speaking, they are not as active as we were in our younger days. They prefer the computer, the telephone, the iPad, the video games, and when they play those things, they eat the snacks from the cupboard (and) drink the sugary drinks. All of that combined create a child who increasingly is becoming vulnerable to lifestyle diseases at an earlier age,” he added.Dr. Tufton outlined that according to studies conducted by the Ministry, obesity has doubled among Jamaica’s children over a seven-year period.“Earlier this year, the latest study showed that we have seen a 100 per cent increase in terms of obesity among our school population, 100 per cent in boys and about 60 per cent or 70 per cent in girls,” the Minister said.He argued that if the current unhealthy trend continues, the nation’s children will be susceptible to diabetes, arthritis, stroke, cancers and other lifestyle diseases.The Minister said it is this concern why the Ministries of Health and Education have engaged in discussions to find the solution to the issue.He noted that the Ministries are developing a nutrition policy to be implemented in all schools by January 2019, which will guide what is made available on school compounds for children to consume.In the meanwhile, Dr. Tufton said the Jamaica Moves programme will be launched in schools in the upcoming academic year, which will promote greater physical activity among students as well as encourage students to pay more attention to their consumption habits.The Jamaica Moves programme was initiated by the Ministry of Health in an effort to encourage Jamaicans to participate in more physical activities and pay more attention to nutrition, thereby reducing the risk of developing lifestyle diseases.The sensitisation session was designed to inform parents, teachers and other stakeholders of the Primary Exit Profile (PEP), PATH, the Career Advancement Programme (CAP), the rural School-bus Service, no-tuition fee policy and other related matters for the upcoming school year.last_img read more

Regular price: $34.99.See it at AmazonI’ve spent a little time with the 059, so I can tell you what I like and don’t like. For starters, they’re really attractive: glossy black with red accents. The cushy earcups are great at blocking outside noise, though there’s no active noise-canceling technology at work here. The headband is also padded, resulting in a reasonably comfortable overall fit.Read more: The best budget headphones for 2019I say “reasonably” because in my opinion, all headphones like this get a little muggy after a while — especially if you’re exercising with them. After about 30 minutes, I was ready for a break.Mpow promises an impressive 20 hours of playtime from the rechargeable battery, and you can also go wired if you run out of juice or just prefer that to Bluetooth. Also impressive: Mpow’s 18-month warranty.Here’s what I don’t like: The circular play, pause and volume button panel embedded on the right earcup isn’t easy to navigate by touch. There’s not enough tactile differentiation between the buttons. Also, while sound quality is a highly subjective thing, to me these sound good, not great. Maybe I’ve just become over-accustomed to noise-isolating earbuds, which provide much richer bass than you get here. But I’d say if you want an ultra-high-fidelity experience, look elsewhere. If you just want background music while you work or podcasts while you ride the commuter train, these fit the bill.I may be a harsher critic than most: As noted earlier, nearly 22,000 Amazon buyers collectively rated the 059 4.5 stars out of 5. That’s pretty telling. Indeed, as a potential dad or grad gift, this is probably a winner.Your thoughts?
