Click to enlarge What is a home rule charter?To understand what a home rule charter does, you must first understand the current form of government.The state constitution, ratified in 1889, spells out how county governments operate, unless voters opt for a home rule charter. The constitution calls for an elected three-member board of commissioners, along with other elected offices such as auditor, treasurer, assessor, clerk, sheriff and prosecuting attorney.In 1948, the constitution was amended to allow counties to adopt home rule charters. These charters allow local jurisdictions, through an elected board of freeholders, to revamp the structure of county government. There are six charter counties in Washington, with King County being the first to adopt a charter in 1969. Some of the charter counties have enacted large-scale overhauls — King County’s board, for example, has nine members — while changes to other counties are small.What the charter would do• Add two council members. One of the commissioners would be the council chairman.• Hire a county manager, who would oversee department heads. The manager would lead many of the day-to-day operations of the county as part of the charter’s call for separating legislative and executive powers.• Reduce the council members’ pay nearly in half. The four council members would receive an annual salary of $53,000 a year; the council chair would receive $64,000.• With the exception of the council chair, the council members would be elected by district in the general election. The council chair would be elected at large.
(WSVN) – The Washington Post is reporting that President Trump plans to “decertify” the Iran nuclear deal, as early as next week.If this goes through, Congress would have 60 days to consider whether or not to reimpose sanctions against Iran.Meanwhile, while at an unrelated meeting with military leaders, Thursday, the topic of Iran came up.“We must not allow Iran to obtain nuclear weapons,” said Trump. “The Iranian regime supports terrorism and exports violence, bloodshed and chaos across the Middle East.”The Obama-era pact called for the United States to lift sanctions in Iran in exchange for Iran curbing it’s nuclear program.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

Explore further Future weather conditions are hard to predict due in part to their seemingly random nature, but one part of the world may not be as random as has thought. In this new effort, the research duo pulled out atmospheric data (from balloons, surface temperature readings and satellite observations) relevant to southern hemispheric oceans, covering the past thirty years. In so doing, they focused primarily on circulation of large atmospheric events in the middle latitudes over the southern oceans. That led them to the discovery of a near rhythmic flow of heat as it was carried from the tropical regions into the colder mid-latitudes. That flow, they noted, tended to cause an imbalance in atmospheric conditions that led to the development of storms. It happens, they report, over and over, with storms occurring roughly every 20 to 30 days.Atmospheric scientists have long known about tropic based circulation patterns—so well-known are they that some of them have names, such as the Quasi-Biennial or Madden-Julian Oscillation. What’s surprising is that such circulation patterns are apparently indirectly impacting weather patterns in the mid-latitudes in the south—so much so that the weather there has become periodic as a result. At least as startling, perhaps, is that no one until now has noticed this weather system—at least not in the scientific community—anecdotal evidence suggests sailors have known about it for years.The team used what they had learned to build a computer model to simulate the conditions that were evident in the data record and found the same result, which they suggest means that storms really do follow a periodic pattern in the oceanic part of the Southern Hemisphere—a finding that could prove invaluable for weather forecasters in South America, Africa, Australia or even Antarctica. (Phys.org) —A pair of researchers with the Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University has found that storms in the Southern Hemisphere tend to occur on a 20 to 30 day periodic basis. In their paper published in the journal Science, David Thompson and Elizabeth Barnes describe how they analyzed thirty years of atmospheric data and used it to create a weather model that revealed the periodic behavior of weather patterns in the Southern Hemisphere. Journal information: Science More information: Periodic Variability in the Large-Scale Southern Hemisphere Atmospheric Circulation, Science 7 February 2014: Vol. 343 no. 6171 pp. 641-645. DOI: 10.1126/science.1247660AbstractPeriodic behavior in the climate system has important implications not only for weather prediction but also for understanding and interpreting the physical processes that drive climate variability. Here we demonstrate that the large-scale Southern Hemisphere atmospheric circulation exhibits marked periodicity on time scales of approximately 20 to 30 days. The periodicity is tied to the Southern Hemisphere baroclinic annular mode and emerges in hemispheric-scale averages of the eddy fluxes of heat, the eddy kinetic energy, and precipitation. Observational and theoretical analyses suggest that the oscillation results from feedbacks between the extratropical baroclinicity, the wave fluxes of heat, and radiative damping. The oscillation plays a potentially profound role in driving large-scale climate variability throughout much of the mid-latitude Southern Hemisphere. © 2014 Phys.org Changing atmospheric circulation over North Atlantic less likely to steer Sandy-like storms into the US coast
Packers fans are desperately holding out hope for an Aaron Rodgers return from a broken collarbone to lead Green Bay into the playoffs, and Rodgers did nothing to help quiet those rumors when he was spotted tossing some deep balls – reportedly between 30 and 50 yards – during warm ups at Heinz Field before last night’s loss to the Steelers.The Pack is sitting at 5-6, so it’s unlikely Rodgers would come back if they were completely out of playoff contention, and tossing in warm ups is a different animal than facing a live pass rush during an NFL game, but that won’t stop Green Bay die-hards from hoping for a miracle.Here’s A-Rodg getting loose.Impressive sight! @rothchris and I both intrigued by @AaronRodgers12 throwing pregame here in Pittsburgh, 54 yards of air on that ball @WBAY pic.twitter.com/JsLQdTFfmW— Dave Schroeder (@SchroederWBAY) November 26, 2017 Aaron Rodgers can’t come back earlier than the Carolina game, but this is a promising sight to see for Packers fans.

A human rights lawyer has called for a cruise ship operator to boycott Bermuda after the country repealed its same-sex marriage laws. GAYSTARNEWS- Under Bermuda’s new ‘domestic partnership’ act, same sex couples cannot marry on board Carnival Corp’s ships, which are bound under the country’s laws – even at sea (Picture: Carnival Corporation & plc) Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… Carnival and its subsidiaries have been replying to queries regarding Bermuda’s decision and Carnival Corporation’s future plans with a reminder that its cruise lines are “proud to be strong supporters of the ‘LGBT’ community and host and/or sponsor many events.” However, support is not simply about corporate sponsorship of events. Real support consists of actively supporting the equal rights of LGBTQ people and refusing to accept the diminution of your passengers’ rights and dignity.Flying Bermuda’s flag under these new circumstances would signal that Carnival acquiesces with discrimination and Bermuda’s shocking denial of equality and love. No legal or tax bonus gained in Bermuda can possibly be worth colluding with discrimination. Make no mistake, a cruise ship line that chooses to be flagged or remain flagged under a nation that has chosen to discriminate becomes complicit in discrimination. Can the ships of Cunard, Princess and P&O proudly fly the flag of Bermuda after this act?I recently wrote to Cunard explaining “as a human rights lawyer and as a citizen of the United Kingdom recently married to a same sex partner, I simply do not feel comfortable taking a cruise on a ship registered in a jurisdiction that does not accept my marriage.” I therefore asked Cunard to stand with its professed values and drop the Bermuda flag of convenience for its entire fleet and refund my deposit and the deposits of all LGBTQ clients who may make this request.I received a reply that implies Carnival Corporation’s cruise ship companies are staying in Bermuda and that Carnival Corporation is turning its back on marriage equality and LGBTQ rights. It said, in part:“Having been delighted and wholly supportive of the Bermuda Government’s change in law last May, which allowed us to conduct same sex marriages on board our ships we are disappointed with this more recent outcome. I can assure you that we will now be working closely with the Bermudan authorities to understand the legalities of ‘Domestic Partnership Act 2017′ and whether we can offer our guests same sex marriages in the future.’The issue is not whether Carnival Corporation was happy when Bermuda accepted marriage equality but the degree to which you are unhappy now that Bermuda has overturned its own judiciary in order to discriminate – and whether you are ready to show your customers that you live up to your own stated values.Even if Bermuda were to allow non-Bermudian same-sex couples to marry on your ships, this would not cure the stigma and injustice; indeed, it would only highlight them. Leaving the ships registered in Bermuda after such a carve out would be agreeing to discriminate against Bermudians on your ships. The right answer is for Carnival Corporation to stand by its values and protect the dignity and rights of all its customers by moving its ships from Bermuda to a jurisdiction that embraces marriage equality.I was also informed: “we are unable to offer anyone a free of charge cancellation due solely to any personal opinion of the independent laws of Bermuda and must make you aware that a cancellation for this particular reason would not constitute a significant alteration to the package as booked.”At this point, I don’t want my money back. I want to sail on the Queen Mary 2 when she is flying the flag of a nation that does not discriminate. Does Carnival Corporation really feel comfortable asking people to pay to sail upon ships where discrimination has just been legalised?I therefore respectfully request that Carnival Corporation consider its position. Remaining in Bermuda is not simply doing nothing; it’s the same as making a decision. This is not just about Bermuda; it is now about Carnival Corporation’s values, sincerity, and commitment. One would hope that your commitment to LGBTQ rights and marriage equality is real and that Carnival Corporation’s values now compel it to move its ships out of Bermuda and instead proudly fly the flag of one of the many jurisdictions that support marriage equality.Thank you in advance for your deeper consideration of these issues.Yours sincerely,Jamison R. FirestoneHuman Rights Lawyer, London, UK’Tatchell told Gay Star News: ‘The cruise ship operators can’t claim that this is an issue for the government of Bermuda.‘It has already directly and negatively impacted on their own operation.‘They have stopped offering same-sex marriages on board their cruise ships. This is direct discrimination against LGBT couples. ‘Got a news tip? Want to share your story? Email us . The British Dependent Territory became the first nation in the world to repeal same sex marriage, passing the Domestic Partnership Act on 7 February.Lawyer Jamison Firestone wrote an open letter to Cruise Corporation – which handles cruise operators Cunard, Prince and P&O – calling for them to no longer cruise under the flag of Bermuda.The corporation has 24 registered ships in Bermuda, meaning that under Bermudan law, same sex couples are now no longer to marry on board the ships – even in international waters.Bermuda registered ships bound by country’s Domestic Partnership Act‘I respectfully request that Carnival Corporation move its cruise ships out of Bermuda in response to the recent vote stripping away the freedom to marry from same-sex couples,’ Firestone opened his letter with.‘Moving the ships is the only way possible to dissociate your company from a jurisdiction that has so dramatically flouted the values you profess to uphold, and to show support for your LGBTQ customers and those who support equal treatment for all.’Ban is ‘tantamount to direct anti-LGBT+ discrimination’The Caribbean nation is the first in the world to repeal it’s same-sex marriage legislationPeter Tatchell, a long standing LBGTI activist and head of the Peter Tatchell Foundation, offered his support to the boycott.He said that banning same sex couples from marrying on board Bermuda-bound ships was ‘tantamount to discrimination’.‘Not only is Carnival colluding with a homophobic government by continuing to register its twenty-four ships in Bermuda, it means that same-sex couples can no longer marry on board, even in international waters.‘This is tantamount to direct anti-LGBT+ discrimination,’ said Tatchell in a statement on Monday (5 March).The news comes after the first official same-sex marriage took place aboard a cruise ship in January of this year.Francisco Vargas and Benjamin Gray became the first same-sex couple to legally wed at sea – thanks to Celebrity Cruises’ Celebrity Equinox.Read Firestone’s letter in full below.‘To the Management of Carnival Corporation, Cunard, Princess and P&O:I respectfully request that Carnival Corporation move its cruise ships out of Bermuda in response to the recent vote stripping away the freedom to marry from same-sex couples. Moving the ships is the only way possible to dissociate your company from a jurisdiction that has so dramatically flouted the values you profess to uphold, and to show support for your LGBTQ customers and those who support equal treatment for all. I therefore urge you to re-register your vessels in one of the many jurisdictions that do support the freedom to marry without discrimination.Bermuda’s recent repeal of marriage equality was a blow to LGBTQ people and an unprecedented step backwards.[Bermuda’s] legislature was the first in the world to override its own judiciary’s determination that marriage discrimination is unconstitutional. Bermuda’s new law applies to twenty-four ships that Cunard, Princess and P&O have registered in Bermuda. Same-sex couples may no longer marry on those ships and can only be offered the lesser status of domestic partnership. Carnival Corporation’s ships now contribute to and expand the reach of a regime that has chosen to discriminate against LGBTQ people. eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) Gay Bermuda tourism CEO: LGBTI boycott ‘counter-intuitive’ after marriage equality reversalBermuda officially becomes the first country to abolish same-sex marriageVictory for love and tourism: Bermuda Supreme Court overturns same-sex marriage banRead the full article on Gaystarnews: :https://www.gaystarnews.com/article/bermuda-lawyer-delivers-open-letter/
News | Radiation Therapy | August 02, 2019 Varian Showcases Cancer Care Systems and Software at AAPM 2019 Varian showcased systems and software from its cancer care portfolio, including the Identify Guidance System, at the… read more June 8, 2010 – A multitracer molecular imaging technique using positron emission tomography (PET) provides detailed information about the physiological processes of cancerous tumors. The method also could eventually help radiation oncologists treat head and neck cancers with precision external-beam radiation therapy and improve the outcomes of therapy, according to research revealed at the Society of Nuclear Medicine’s 57th Annual Meeting, held June 6-8 in Salt Lake City.“The research that we are conducting with Philips is extending the use of molecular imaging for radiotherapy planning, moving closer to more personalized treatment of hard-to-treat cancers based on the biology of each individual patient’s tumor,” said Kristi Hendrickson, Ph.D., lead author of the study and medical physicist at the University of Washington Medical Center, Seattle. “By modeling the data acquired from PET scans, we can potentially reduce damage to surrounding healthy tissue, as well as provide the ability to do ‘dose painting,’ delivering a highly customized form of radiation therapy for each patient.” Cancers of the head and neck are notoriously difficult to treat, not only because of their proximity to sensitive anatomical structures, but also because of their tendency to recur. Researchers are working to find the best way to image these tumors in order to provide the most effective treatment. There are several forms of radiation therapy currently available. An approach called intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) is a sophisticated technique that is used to maximize dose delivery to tumors while sparing adjacent normal tissues such as the salivary glands. This therapy uses an external beam of radiation that is sculpted into the shape and volume of the individual tumor. There are limiting factors involved in IMRT when applied to certain cancers. The presence of hypoxia, or oxygen depletion, can have a negative impact on therapy by leading to tumor resistance. By using biological information about the tumor gleaned from multiple PET imaging agents, clinicians can model both tumor anatomy and physiology, drawing closer to eradicating the cancer with a very high dose of radiation that is tailored to each tumor.In this study, a patient with an advanced case of head and neck cancer showing hypoxia within the tumor was scanned using PET and two imaging agents, 18F-FDG, which measures glucose metabolism, and 18F-FMISO, which helps image and quantify hypoxia. Functional imaging with PET was combined with anatomical imaging from X-ray computed tomography (CT), and post-scanning analysis was used to model tumor physiology, using a Philips-developed pharmacokinetic modeling software. A high-dose IMRT plan was designed based on this information, which showed that treatment planning with molecular imaging is possible. This work may pave the way for more effective and individualized treatment for head and neck cancer patients. Further clinical trials evaluating patients treated with these approaches are needed to provide supporting evidence of the effectiveness of this and similar methods of IMRT treatment planning.

It was hard to tell if that comment came from Arians’ gut feeling about Johnson’s rehab process or came with a hint of apprehension about playing a healthy Johnson if the season goes downhill before his return.Last week, Johnson told 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station’s Mike Jurecki that he’d just begun working out again. Speaking with Schefter, the running back said that’s because he wasn’t even allowed to sweat until recently — stitches from the surgery needed to stay dry to avoid infection or any setbacks.There’s no exact date determined for when the cast comes off at this point. Johnson just knows that it’s a few weeks down the line.That puts Johnson’s return well past the Nov. 7 date where he would be eligible to come off the injured reserve.“It really just depends on, when I have the cast off, how long it takes the stiffness and soreness to go away,” Johnson said. Fleshing out when Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson makes his return from a complex wrist injury isn’t as easy as asking one person.Player, head coach, trainers and team executives might all have different opinions.One thing we do know: Johnson doesn’t care about the Cardinals’ playoff odds — or lack thereof — whenever he’s cleared to play.He just knows he wants to return this season and if he has his way, that won’t be dictated by where Arizona stands record-wise. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo 3 Comments Share Top Stories (AP Photo) Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “Health is totally separate,” Johnson told ESPN reporter Adam Schefter on a podcast this week. “I’m really just trying to get on the field as quick as possible. Record doesn’t mean anything.”Problem is, Johnson himself can’t estimate a return date.He’s still in a cast, just started working out after a long layoff and knows that he won’t even get a read on his status for another “couple weeks” when the cast comes off and rehab begins.Then there’s the outside factors. Who can say if the Cardinals’ front office will feel comfortable with Johnson returning if Arizona is eliminated from the playoff picture?“We’ll continue to monitor it and see if he can get back at some point of the season,” Cardinals general manager Steve Keim told Doug & Wolf Tuesday on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station.Arizona coach Bruce Arians on Tuesday wasn’t optimistic that the team will have both Johnson and rookie back T.J. Logan returning this season after each suffered similar wrist injuries that required surgery.“You’d have to ask the doctors,” Arians said. “Right now, I doubt it.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact

Hindu nationalists Ashutosh Varshney highlights what he surmises as the “three ideas” that constitute the “thematic core” of their ideology (‘Modi the Moderate’ IE March 27) First Hindus are the primary or exclusive owners of the Indian nation India is a Hindu rashtra (nation) Second two minorities — Christians and especially Muslims — have a profound ambivalent relationship with India Third caste divisions within Hinduism and caste-based politics need to be minimised for they undermine Hindu unity The lower castes should follow the Brahminical model of Hinduism Hinduness as a cultural identity that this ancient nation has come to acquire is what Hindu nationalists have always propagated In this proposition Hindu doesn’t represent any religion or mode of worship Instead it is a set of values that have come to be known as the Sanatana Dharma Savarkar himself had given a clear definition to the word “Hindu” in his book: Aasindhu sindhu paryantaa Yasya Bharata Bhoomika/ Pitrubhu Punyabhuchaiva Tavai Hinduriti Smritah Translated “Those who regard this land of Bharat spread between the river Sindhu (in the north) and the ocean Sindhu (Sindhu Sagar — Indian Ocean in the south) as their Pitrubhumi (fatherland) and Punyabhumi (holy land) are called Hindus” It is more about an emotional bonding with the country in which they were born But Savarkar never differentiated Hindus and Muslims as superior and inferior In the manifesto of “Hindu Rashtra” which Varshney had referred to as the basic text Savarkar states: “Religious minorities will have all the right to practise their religion in a Hindu Rashtra and the state will ensure that; but the Hindu Rashra won’t allow creation of a nation within a nation in the name of religious minoritysm” What’s wrong with it This is exactly the situation in the country where Varshney has grown up and prospered the United States In fact MS Golwalkar “Guruji” told an Iranian scholar by the name of Saifuddin Jeelani in 1971: “According to our ways of religious belief and philosophy a Muslim is as good as a Hindu It is not the Hindu alone who will reach the ultimate Godhead Everyone has the right to follow his path according to his own persuasion That is our attitude” Where is the question of primacy or exclusivity Varshney insinuates that Savarkar had said of Christians and Muslims that “India is not their ‘punyabhumi (holy land)’ “ “As a result their love for India is ‘divided’ They need to demonstrate their fidelity to India or must be made into Indians; Indian loyalties cannot be assumed to exist” is how Varshney interprets Savarkar’s view It is important to note that Savarkar had always maintained that he didn’t differentiate between Hindus and Muslims When a journalist asked him in Lahore in 1938 when he was Hindu Mahasabha president as to why he and MA Jinnah were bent upon dividing the nation along communal lines his reply was sharp: “Your question is misplaced While I am for equal treatment for all Jinnah is for more and more concessions for Muslims” This emphatically exposes the hollowness of the charges that Savarkar wanted Muslims as second-class citizens in a Hindu Rashtra Here it is also important to understand the prevailing situation in India at that time Large sections of the Muslim population were influenced by Jinnah’s “Two Nation” theory causing serious consternation in the minds of many a leader Forget what leaders like Sardar Patel had said even a secular-minded leader like Jawaharlal Nehru had raised his voice of concern Nehru asked the students of Aligarh Muslim University in 1948: “I have said that I am proud of our inheritance and our ancestors who gave an intellectual and cultural pre-eminence to India How do you feel about this past Do you feel that you are also sharers in it and inheritors of it and therefore proud of something that belongs to you as much as to me Or do you feel alien to it and pass it by without understanding it or feeling that strange thrill which comes from the realisation that we are the trustees and inheritors of this vast treasure I ask you these questions because in recent years many forces have been at play diverting people’s minds into wrong channels and trying to pervert the course of history You are Muslims and I am a Hindu We may adhere to different religious faiths or even to none; but that does not take away from us that cultural inheritance that is yours as well as mine” Let me quote another senior leader on this issue: “Islam is a system of social self-government and is incompatible with local self-government because the allegiance of a Muslim does not rest on his domicile in the country which is his but on the faith to which he belongs To the Muslim wherever there is the rule of Islam there is his own country In other words Islam can never allow a true Muslim to adopt India as his motherland and regard a Hindu as his kith and kin” This was not Savarkar or Golwalkar it was BR Ambedkar in his book Pakistan or The Partition of India However even these statements of Nehru and Ambedkar shouldn’t be taken out of context to suggest they were anti-Muslim The primary concern of all national leaders at the time was to somehow ensure national unity by understanding and exploring socio-religious dynamics Savarkar and for that matter Golwalkar believed in and worked for Hindu-Muslim unity Their approach was different from that of others But their commitment to it was above board In the early 1940s Savarkar openly appreciated it when a group of Muslims in Lucknow got together and passed a resolution saying “any Muslim slaughtering a cow will be considered an enemy of Hindu-Muslim unity” Savarkar immediately issued a press statement saying “if such gestures keep on coming from Muslims Hindu-Muslim unity is possible” That brings us to the third point about caste and Hinduism Hindutva’s emphasis on minimising caste distinctions and creating Hindu unity is interpreted by Varshney as forcing lower castes to follow the “Brahminical model of Hinduism” Varshney doesn’t explain what he means by “Brahminical model of Hinduism” All his life Savarkar fought against caste-based inequalities and untouchability He was the first to launch the temple entry campaign for “Harijans” He was unequivocal in his condemnation of the distorted caste system “As the Sanatana Dharma did not die due to this tectonic change so too it will not die if the present-day distortion that is caste division is destroyed” he exhorted In fact Varshney’s Hindu nationalist is at the core not an exclusivist but a universalist and humanist Rejecting notions of “high and low” on the basis of caste Savarkar wrote: “No one should ever think that a certain Hindu caste is high or that another is low The notion of high and low will be determined by overt merit of individuals Every Hindu child has but one caste at birth — Hindu Other than that consider no other sub-caste ‘Janmanaa jaayate Hinduhu (Everyone is a Hindu by birth)’ In truth every man has but one caste at birth — human” The Hindu nationalist whom Varshney called “Brahminical” declared once that “I felt like rebelling against the caste system Just as I felt I should rebel against the foreign rule over Hindusthan I also felt that I should rebel against the caste system and untouchability in Hindusthan” It is important to look at the works of Savarkar and others as neutral empires Inherent ideological biases result in lopsided analyses like the one produced by Ashutosh Varshney The writer

Ipoh There were signs that the distance between the World Champions and Asian Games Champions had been bridged; to some extent The earlier league win against New Zealand (3-0) was a precursor that India had the resilience to close down teams building a fortress like defence Australia was not at their best yet they had enough fire-power to raise levels when required and in the end win comfortably Australia move to seven points from three matches within striking distance of yet another Azlan Shah final India sit on four points with two matches in hand a draw or defeat in any could take away the satisfaction of playing the season’s first big final India in action against Australia at the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup Image courtesy: Twitter/@HockeyIndia After the match Indian coach Roelant Oltmans said “It’s not about playing a close game with Australia It’s about winning against them” India played Australia seven times in 2016 winning only once that too in the first Test of the two-Test series in Victoria India won that match 3-2 with goals from Affan Yousuf In that period across tournaments Australia scored 25 goals against us the worst defeat (5-1) coming at the league stage of the 2016 Azlan Shah India scored 12 goals; six of those goals were scored in the Test series showing a mindset that in tournaments we do crack There is no doubt that Australia is our bogey team In the Olympics we have played 10 times winning only thrice with two draws and five losses In the World Cup we have played eight times won once drawn once and lost six times In the Champions Trophy we have played 15 times winning twice drawing thrice and losing 10 times In the Commonwealth Games we have played five times and lost all matches And now here at the Azlan Shah we have played 15 times with India winning thrice one draw and Australia victorious 11 times There is a psychological burden that the India team carries against Australia Somewhere at the back of the mind embedded in the soul it ticks away like a clock reminding us of our frailties against a team that may be passing through a transition after the Rio Olympics yet has enough skill and power to beat us Australia’s coach Colin Batch a member of the ’86 Australian World Cup winning team said he was happy with the way Australia played and that he was confident that Australia would improve with time “There were periods that India played well” said Batch “But we were able to change the momentum” It was Australia who set the pace in the beginning before India took control in the midfield gave Harmanpreet Singh a chance to move on the right flank and overlap with Pardeep Mor forcing their defence back thus creating space in the middle which was exploited by Sardar Singh and Manpreet Singh the captain of the match There were periods where India would have scored Akashdeep Singh had two deflections hurrying past the post And once Akashdeep played in tandem with Mandeep who just wasn’t allowed space to either take a reverse hit or even pass SV Sunil again had an off day It’s worrying that a forward with that kind of speed and skill is not able to leave a mark The blow came when PR Sreejesh lunged forward and twisted his knee He hobbled off and Akash Chikte took his place Oltmans later felt that it wasn’t exactly a body blow to India’s chances in the match “It’s too simplistic a reasoning It has to do more with execution of the game plan After we were leading we did not continue playing the way we were doing before” The Indian coach didn’t offer an explanation for that However Australia showed patience and took their chances on the right flank and also by playing in from the middle The man-of-the-match may have gone to Eddie Ockenden but the player who drove the Aussie attacks and broke the Indian midfield was Tom Craig The Australian who plays for Kalinga Lancers in the Hockey India League showed his ability to cover a lot of ground was defensively strong had some great mid-range shots combined with some terrific intensity In the third quarter Craig defended almost at the edge of the Australian striking circle moved into midfield finally ending up in the Indian striking circle to almost score off a deflection India missed a similar player They have one in Manpreet but surprisingly the captain of the day decided to leave his mojo back at the hotel Oltmans was right when he said “I think you will agree that until we scored our goal we played fantastic After the first two minutes we controlled the game We had good attacks But after we led it started going down You know that Australia is always looking to turn the momentum around and they did” It was a lovely turn of pace that gave India the lead in the 26th minute Harmanpreet found yards of free space and he sped in turned and found himself in the Australian striking circle His shot hit Andrew Philpott’s stick with the deflection headed towards the goal It seemed that Mandeep had the last touch But officially the goal was awarded to Harmanpreet; the reasoning being that it had entered the Australian goal India at this stage had territorial advantage Sardar was playing well and his skills had the Australians worried Maybe at this stage a midfield trio of Sardar Harjeet and Manpreet could have pushed harder and tightened the screws around Australia But the substitutions hardly brought the three together The rhythm and momentum of keeping the World Champions in a defensive frame of mind was lost Two minutes before the second quarter finished Chikte made a good save of Australia’s second penalty corner But a field play saw him take a shot on the pads The rebound rolled away to his right and before Mor or any other defender could react Ockenden had tapped it in It was a brilliant piece of opportunism It was still anybody’s game At the end of two quarters the scores were tied 1-1 Four minutes into the third quarter 34th minute Australia took the lead Matthew Swann couldn’t stop the fifth penalty corner cleanly but reacted swiftly to retrieve the ball and send it to Craig standing right in the middle of the circle Craig squeezed it between Chikte’s pads Yet again Australia had created a goal from nothing India as a team is very structured and defensively sound so these blips during crucial moments came as a surprise Instead of raising their levels and fighting back the intensity slipped and suddenly Australia had a grip on the match The slip-shod defending in the 51st minute fourth quarter showed that spirits were flagging and probably there were tired limbs around Tom Wickham made his move from the right flank and ran through the middle of the Indian striking circle with the goal on his right He slipped past not just one but five defenders before crunching a reverse hit that beat Chikte It was a wonderful goal conjured out of thin air Oltmans felt India were unlucky with the third goal “From our point of view it was a clear foot from one of the Australian players before the goal was scored” he said India pulled off Chikte with around six minutes left in the fourth quarter and Rupinder Pal Singh took the field with a bib But Australia were not be denied and won the year’s first encounter with India quite comfortably “Australia is quite a good team as we all know so to lose against a very good team is part of the game” said Oltmans “We have seen also that in quite a number of games (in the past) we did match Australia But in the end it is not about matching It is about winning” Or maybe what Oltmans left unsaid was the need to demonstrate some steel in losing situations and haul yourself back into contention By: Express Web Desk | Updated: South Korea registered another emphatic win Top News South Korea who had
