When Chunky thought he wouldnt get a role in Begum Jaan

first_imgMumbai, Apr 13 (PTI) Chunky Pandey has stunned everyone as a menacing guy in “Begum Jaan” trailer, and the actor says he was not sure if he would get that part in the film.”After the release of Housefull, I was auditioning for Begum Jaan and people on the sets were telling me to say dialogues like Aakhri Pasta (his character in Housefull). At the back of my mind I thought I would not get the film,” Chunky told PTI.”But Srijit was sure he wanted me to play this evil part. He wanted me to lose real Chunky Pandey… he wanted the world to see my evil side. He saw the evilness in me and he wanted to bring that out in Begum Jaan,” he says.Chunky, who is known for his comic timing, is playing a villainous character of Kabir in the Vidya Balan starrer but the actor says it was not tough for him to get into the dark zone.”He is not a villain… this is the face of evil. Evil will always exist in this world. I always had a wicked streak in me, the sadist side in me also comes in my comedy films. But to do something like this is crazy. It came very naturally to me and I am most scared about that,” he says.Sporting a bald pate, kohl-lined eyes and tobacco- stained teeth, Chunky reveals his wife failed to recognise him in this new avatar.”My wife couldnt recognise me. The whole personality has changed. She always thought I am a villain and I had to prove her right so I did Begum Jaan,” he says.advertisement”I was little resistant (about the look) after seeing myself I was happy. You dont get a film like Begum Jaan everyday in your career. Srijit compelled me to lose my identity, with this creepy, almost-bald look.”I was earlier asked to cut my hair short, later Srijit just took all my hair off he also asked me to shave off my eyebrows. I told him no as I was travelling for work and could be stopped at immigration.”He believes his repulsive role will get him critical acclaim, something he says he misses since his “Tezaab” days.The film also features Naseeruddin Shah, Rajat Kapoor, Ashish Vidyarthi and Gauahar Khan.Calling them power house performers, Chunky says, “These are actors with whom you have to be on your toes. You have to up your performance. I had to be best. It was a delight to work with them.”Srijits 1947-set film “Begum Jaan” which is a remake of his Bengali movie “Rajkahini, will release this Friday.

HWL Final: Australia edge Argentina 2-1 to clinch win gold medal

first_imgDrag-flicker Blake Govers struck two minutes from time as defending champions Australia edged past Argentina 2-1 to win the title in the Hockey World League (HWL) Final at the Kalinga Stadium in Bhubaneswar on Sunday.Govers struck to the left of Argentine goalkeeper Juan Vivaldi in the 58th minute after Australia saw Jeremy Hayward’s penalty corner conversion in the 17th minute being equalised within a minute by Agustin Bugallo.It was a fitting final given that the contest was between Olympic champions Argentina and the world champions.The match lived up to the expectations, with both teams showing their attacking game.While Australia kept their game of all-round attack, Argentina did their best to maintain their game of holding the ball in their half and wait for a counter-attack.Even though Australia pressed hard, Argentina kept moving the ball quickly.Australia drew the first blood, with Hayward flicking between Vivaldi’s left leg and left-bar defender Ignacio Ortiz.However, the South Americans pulled level within a minute as Bugallo deflected home at the right near post a right cross from Juan Gilardi.Afterward, both teams were locked in a tight battle. Argentina matched Australia’s physical game head-on.Eddie Ockenden came closest to give Australia the lead a few seconds prior to the close of the third quarter. Central defender Mark Knowles’ long-range ball was met by Blake Govers just outside the circle and he fed the veteran attacking midfielder on the left but the latter was denied by the cross-bar.Juan Lopez responded for Argentina following a superb counter-attack but with only goalkeeper Tyler Lovell to beat, the attacker drove wide of the left post.advertisementJust when it seemed the match will go to the penalty shootout, Australia earned a penalty corner from which Govers made no mistake to make it 2-1.In the dying seconds, Diego Paz failed to connect a flick from the left as Australia survived some anxious moments to earn the 2-1 win and retain the title they had won in Raipur two years ago.”We controlled the game well and got some clear-cut chances but didn’t make the most of them,” Man-of-the-Match Gilardi of Argentina said after the match.last_img read more

Time for India to look beyond MS Dhoni in T20 Internationals?

first_imgTeam India’s experimentation with the middle-order has been going on for a while keeping in mind the 2019 World Cup in England.Virat Kohli has tried Yuvraj Singh, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik, Kedar Jadhav and even Hardik Pandya in the No. 4 and 5 slots around Mahendra Singh Dhoni in one-day international cricket. While some have failed, some have met with moderate success. The likes of Yuvraj, Manish and Jadhav have been patchy but thanks to the calming influence of Dhoni, India have survived a scare and eased through to the top of the rankings and are now second to South Africa due to points in the ODI format.And recently, the team’s experimentation has even shifted to the shortest format of the game. In the recent series against New Zealand, India handed a debut to Shreyas Iyer and dropped Jadhav. In the first game, thanks to a brilliant start by Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan, the hosts got away and the middle-order did not have to do much but in the second game, India stumbled in the chase of 197 at Rajkot. Iyer was pushed to three, Kohli came in at 4 and looked dangerous but the batsmen around him were struggling. (MS Dhoni a good helping hand for Virat Kohli: David Warner to India Today)While Pandya struggled to pick Ish Sodhi, Dhoni took too long to settle in, forcing Kohli to go after the bowling and end up giving away his wicket.BCCI PhotoDhoni scored 49 off 37 balls with a strike-rate of 132. It may not be all that bad but the former captain’s inability to rotate strike much like the past one year,  proved to be a cause for concern. He is still lightning quick between the wickets but he has struggled to hit the ball right from the word go nor has he been able to create enough opportunities to steal quick singles.advertisementIn Dhoni’s innings in the second T20I against the Black Caps, he had scored 26 runs in boundaries from five deliveries (3×6, 2×4) and managed only 23 from the remaining 32 deliveries, which is far less than run a ball.Dhoni, over the years, has evolved as a player and takes some time to settle in and then he has a go towards the end. While this suits India in the 50-over format, it is a bit of a worry in T20s. He could be a perfect No. 4 in ODIs…also in T20s if the team loses early wickets, is he really a person to bank on when you need 12-13 run-per-over right from the word go? His current stats and numbers certainly suggest otherwise and pundits and greats of the game would definitely agree.”In T20s, MS Dhoni’s role is at No 4. He requires more time to get his eye in and then do the job. But (the match on) Saturday  was a classical example because when Kohli was batting, Dhoni had to give strike to Kohli. Kohli’s strike rate was 160, MS Dhoni’s strike rate was 80. That’s not good enough when India were chasing a mammoth total,” Laxman said in a post-match show.”I still feel it’s time for MS Dhoni to give youngsters a chance in T20 format. It will be an opportunity for a youngster to blossom and get confidence playing international cricket. He is definitely an integral part of ODI cricket,” he added.Another legend of the game, Sourav Ganguly, in an interview with India Today , had this to say about Dhoni’s T20 credentials: “I am not too sure if Dhoni is a good T20 player. He is a champion ODI player but when it comes to T20 cricket, in 10 years, he has got one fifty and that’s not the best record. So that’s an area which needs to be looked at.”Dhoni has scored 169 runs from eight innings in the last 10 T20 Internationals he has played, which includes only one fifty against England in Bengaluru in February.He has scored 1281 runs from 82 matches at an average of 35.58. The numbers are not bad but gone are the days when he would come, hammer the bowlers round the park and give his team the edge from ball one. The odd innings might be around the corner, here and there but overall, he has struggled recently and the Rajkot T20 was another example.India will face New Zealand in the series decider on Tuesday at Thiruvananthapuram and Dhoni will again play a key role if India have to clinch the three-match series. However, with the Sri Lanka series coming up, India can well afford to rest him and look at the likes of Rishabh Pant, KL Rahul. They are decent keepers and big-hitters of the ball. They might not provide the huge experience that comes with MSD but this will certainly be a step forward as India look to be the top ranked side in all formats of the game.advertisementIf they fail, there’s always MSD to fall back to as long as he is there to offer his services.last_img read more

Letter from PM to states can help prioritise issue of bonded labour

first_imgNew Delhi: Human rights experts have suggested that a letter from the prime minister to chief ministers will help prioritise the issue of bonded and migrant labour. During an open house session hosted by the National Human Rights Commission on Friday evening, participants discussed on the issue and felt that the root cause of this menace lies in the agrarian crisis, which needs to be addressed on priority in the country, a senior NHRC official said on Saturday. Also Read – Pak activated 20 terror camps & 20 launch pads along LoC “It was also suggested that a letter from the prime minister to the chief ministers will help priorities this issue on the lines of mission mode campaigns, like the Swacch Bharat Abhiyan,” the NHRC said in a statement. NHRC Member Justice P C Pant, said a preventive approach is needed to end bonded labour, as it has acquired various “new forms and dimensions” with changing times and vocations since the Bonded Labour System (Abolition) Act was enacted in 1976. Also Read – Two squadrons which participated in Balakot airstrike awarded citations Pant said bonded labour contracts are not purely economic in India and these are reinforced by custom or coercion in many sectors such as agriculture, silk, mining, match production and brick kiln industries, among others. He said that robust inter- state coordination mechanisms involving all ministries, agencies, trade unions and NGOs are required to address the issues of migrant workers, who may end up becoming bonded labour. DM Mulay, Member, NHRC, said for the robust implementation of the Bonded Labour System (Abolition) Act, it will be necessary to increase the conviction rate of those involved in subjecting people to bonded labour to act as a deterrent. Jyotika Kalra, Member of the rights panel, said, the NHRC has been very proactive in taking cognisance of complaints related to bonded labour. She suggested that NGOs should try sending online complaints to the commission by geo-tagging photos showing bonded labour. Online complaints are easy for quick processing, monitoring and effective action to catch the culprits, she said. Jaideep Govind, Secretary General, NHRC, said, the social and economic marginalisation of weaker sections and their inability to move out of their respective group makes them particularly vulnerable to forced labour and human trafficking. Moreover, he said, the lack of labour regulations in the informal and unregulated sectors creates huge power imbalances in employer-worker relationships and increases workers’ vulnerability to exploitation. Ajay Tiwari, Joint Secretary, Union Ministry of Labour and Employment, said, despite efforts, there are still many challenges in the way of effective implementation of the Bonded Labour System (Abolition) Act, such as high pendency of summary trials at DM level, and concerns over double jeopardy.last_img read more

Domingo named new Bangladesh cricket coach

first_imgDhaka: The Bangladesh Cricket Board on Saturday named South Africa’s Russell Domingo as the new head coach of the national team, replacing Englishman Steve Rhodes. The 44-year-old has agreed to a two-year term with the BCB and is expected to arrive in Dhaka on Wednesday to take charge. “He has a wealth of experience and we have been very impressed with his passion and coaching philosophy,” BCB president Nazmul Hassan said. Bangladesh were struggling to appoint a head coach ahead of hosting Afghanistan for a one Test series in early September and a tri-nation tournament with the visitors and Zimbabwe. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over Chandigarh The Tigers had no coach for over a month after the BCB parted ways with Rhodes following the team’s eighth-place finish in the league stage of the World Cup. BCB Director and former skipper Khaled Mahmud took temporary charge during an 0-3 defeat to Sri Lanka in a three-match one-day international series in late July. Hasan said they chose Domingo ahead of other candidates because of his availability. “We also sought a full-time coach… (Domingo) said he was very keen to work with the boys and didn’t want any holiday breaks. These are the reasons why we found him suitable,” he added. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced later Domingo, the lone candidate to face an interview for the post when he arrived in Dhaka on August 7, said he was eagerly looking ahead to his new challenge. “I have followed Bangladesh’s progress with keen interest and I am extremely excited to assist the team in reaching the goals that they are capable of,” a BCB statement quoted him as saying. Domingo was the assistant coach of South Africa in 2011. He replaced Gary Kirsten as national team head coach of the Proteas in 2013 and remained there 2017. He led South Africa to semifinals of the 2014 World Twenty20 in Bangladesh. Domingo will have compatriots Charl Langeveldt and Neil McKenzie among his support staff. Bangladesh last month appointed Langeveldt as the pace bowling coach and retained McKenzie as batting coach. Former New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori has also been appointed as new spin bowling coach up to ICC World Twenty20 in Australia next year.last_img read more

Australia recognises West Jerusalem as Israels capital

first_imgAustralia prime minister Scott Morrison speaks at The Sydney Institute in Sydney, Australia on 15 December 2018. Photo: ReutersAustralia formally recognises West Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, reversing decades of Middle East policy, but will not move its embassy there immediately, prime minister Scott Morrison said on Saturday.”Australia now recognises West Jerusalem, being the seat of the Knesset and many of the institutions of government, is the capital of Israel,” Morrison said.”We look forward to moving our embassy to West Jerusalem when practical,” he told reporters in Sydney.Morrison said in October he was open to shifting Australia’s embassy from Tel Aviv. President Donald Trump’s decision to move the US embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv in May delighted Israel, infuriated Palestinians and upset the wider Arab world and Western allies.Morrison’s unexpected announcement in October was viewed cynically because it came days before a crucial by-election in an electorate with a strong Jewish representation, a poll his party subsequently lost.It also drew criticism from Muslim-majority neighbours such as Indonesia and Malaysia, neither of whom formally recognise Israel’s right to exist. Arab countries worried that the move would unnecessarily inflame tensions in the Middle East.Israel regards all of Jerusalem as its capital, including the eastern sector that it annexed after the 1967 Middle East war, and wants all embassies based there. The international community believes Jerusalem’s status should be resolved through negotiation.The status of Jerusalem, home to sites holy to the Muslim, Jewish and Christian faiths, is one of the biggest obstacles to a peace agreement between Israel and Palestinians who want East Jerusalem recognised as the capital of a Palestinian state.Morrison said Australia would not move its embassy to West Jerusalem until the city’s final status was determined, but said trade and defence offices would be opened there.He confirmed Australia’s support for a two-state solution with a Palestinian capital in East Jerusalem.Izzat Salah Abdulhadi, head of the Palestinian Delegation to Australia, said endorsing two capitals signalled a genuine commitment to a two-state solution but said Israel would still regard Jerusalem as its “eternal and undivided capital”.”Recognition of any part of it before serious compromises and genuine concessions have been made will be seen, at least to some extent, as rewarding this intransigence,” he said in a statement emailed to Reuters.Indonesia’s foreign ministry spokesman, Arrmanatha Nasir, noted that Australia had not moved its embassy to Jerusalem and called on all members of the United Nations to recognise a Palestinian state “based on the principle of two-state solutions”.last_img read more

A Windows port of Apple Macs Mojave Dynamic Desktop feature

first_imgA Windows port of Apple Mac’s Mojave Dynamic Desktop feature by Martin Brinkmann on June 15, 2018 in Software – Last Update: June 17, 2018 – 13 commentsWinDynamicDesktop is a free open source program for Windows 10 that brings Apple Macintosh’s Mojave Dynamic Desktop feature.Mojave Dynamic Desktop is a new feature of Apple’s Macintosh operating system that alters the background image of the desktop dynamically based on the time of day.While Windows does support loading different wallpapers either natively, in Windows 10, or through third-party applications like Bcall, Wally, or Wallperizer, none as far as I know link the loading of wallpapers to the time of day.All that happens really is that Mojave Dynamic Desktop keeps track of the time of day in the location to load different wallpaper images that depict the time of day.Update: The developer released an update which addresses issues mentioned in the review. It drops memory use, does away with the bulk of crashes, and unlocks an option to set custom desktop backgrounds.WinDynamicDesktopWinDynamicDesktop brings the feature to Windows 10. It is an open source program based on Microsoft’s Net Framework that you can run right after the download. Note that Windows SmartScreen may kick in as the app is new and not widely used.The app has a size of less than 1 Megabyte but it comes without any of the wallpapers that it uses. It will download the wallpapers on first start.All you have to do is enter a location as it will change the desktop backgrounds on the system based on the location. You can enter town, country to set a location and maybe other location-based information such as zip codes as well but I did not try that.Once you have done that and clicked on the set location button the wallpaper images get downloaded and set automatically by the application provided that it is running in the background.The application downloads and stores 16 wallpapers on the system which it loads based on the time of day. The screenshot above highlights them all; as you can see, light and shadow changes throughout the day so that you get a bright almost shadow-less image at noon and darker photos at night.There are a couple of things that you need to be aware of:The app threw exceptions regularly but it worked nevertheless.It is not possible currently to use a custom set of wallpapers. You could try and replace the wallpapers with your own, not sure if that would work though (retain the name).The app uses quite a bit of memory. It used 55 Megabytes on a Windows 10 Pro device running version 1803.Closing WordsDynamically changing the desktop background based on the time of day is certainly an interesting feature. Question is, is it worth running a 55 Megabyte of RAM using background app all the time for that? I can see this app becoming popular if the developer manages to cut RAM use a lot and introduce new functionality such as selecting custom wallpapers or time intervals.(via Deskmodder)Now You: Do you use a wallpaper changer?Summary12345 Author Rating3 based on 2 votes Software Name WinDynamicDesktop Operating System WindowsSoftware Category MultimediaLanding Page https://github.com/t1m0thyj/WinDynamicDesktop Advertisementlast_img read more

Medical imaging plays an increasing role in the accurate… read more February 3, 2009 – The Image Gently campaign has developed new materials to educate parents about medical imaging and to help them track their child’s past imaging exams, in an effort to continue to raise awareness about opportunities to lower radiation dose used in pediatric imaging exams. Pediatricians and other physicians are encouraged to download the materials from the Image Gently web site, www.imagegently.org, and make them available to parents in their waiting rooms and offices. A special section of the Image Gently web site will also be dedicated to providing parents with the most up to date information regarding children’s imaging and tools to help them understand the benefits and concerns associated with medical imaging procedures.“Radiologists, radiologic technologists and medical physicists are committed to working together to lower radiation dose used for CT scans in children. We also want to work with pediatricians and parents to help ensure that children get the most appropriate imaging for their medical situation,” said Marilyn Goske, M.D., chair of the Alliance for Radiation Safety in Pediatric Imaging, past Board Chair of the Society for Pediatric Radiology, and Silverman Chair for Radiology Education, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.“My Child’s Medical Imaging Record” allows parents to record where and when a study was performed as well as the type of radiologic exam. This can help their future medical providers make more informed decisions regarding optimal timing of additional radiologic examinations.“‘My Child’s Medical Imaging Record’ card enables parents to help their physicians to provide the highest possible benefit by ordering the most appropriate exams while avoiding unnecessary potential risk to the child,” said James H. Thrall, M.D., FACR, chair of the American College of Radiology Board of Chancellors.“What Parents Should Know About CT Scans for Children: Medical Radiation Safety” and “What Parents Should Know About Medical Radiation Safety” are downloadable patient education brochures. These provide lay definitions for various imaging exams, which utilize radiation informing parents of potential risks associated with these studies. They provide dose estimates in comparison to natural background radiation, discuss possible alternative examinations that do not utilize radiation, and equip parents with questions to ask their imaging providers so that they can make better informed decisions regarding their child’s care. The imaging record card and the patient brochures are available at www.imagegently.org.“We believe parents want to work with their pediatrician to learn about CT scans prior to their child having the study. The parent information pamphlets and medical imaging record card available on the Image Gently website enhance parents’ participation in their child’s health care and improve health literacy by enhancing communication. We invite radiologists and pediatricians to download the information packets and medical record card and distribute them in their waiting rooms and offices “stated Dorothy Bulas, M.D., professor of Radiology and Pediatrics at the Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, DC, who is leading the parent component of the Image Gently campaign.“Parents can make better health care decisions on behalf of their children if they are armed with the correct information. Although medical imaging is increasingly replacing more invasive techniques in all areas of medicine, its risks and rewards may not be entirely understood. These brochures can help allay parents’ concerns and help them give better information to providers so that they can make the best possible diagnostic and treatment decisions for their child,” said Gerald A. White Jr., MS, FAAPM, chairman of the board of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine. “Radiologic technologists are the final link in the chain as they perform CT scans,” said Connie Mitchell, M.A., R.T. (R)(CT), chairman of the board for the American Society of Radiologic Technologists. “These patient education brochures can provide valuable insights to parents to help them better understand why technologists ask them particular questions and can give them a better context for providing more thorough and productive answers that will help us provide better care.”For more information: www.imagegently.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Video Player is loading.Arthur Agatston explains the history of CT calcium scoring Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 9:54Loaded: 1.67%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -9:54 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.
