first_imgDeepak Shodhan   –  The Hindu Former Test cricketer Deepak Shodhan, the first Indian to score a memorable ton in his debut innings, died today at his residence in his birth place, Ahmedabad aged 87.According to informed sources he died of cardiac arrest today morning after a brief battle with lung cancer.Shodhan, a left-handed batsman who could bowl medium pace, played just three Tests in all — averaging 60-plus — after rescuing India from dire straits by scoring 110 not out in his debut innings against Pakistan in the fifth and final drawn Test at Kolkata in 1952-53, the first series between the two countries after partition.He had stepped in at No 8 with India tottering at 179 for 6 in reply to Pakitan’s 257 all out and he batted with Dattu Phadkar, GS Ramchand, wicketkeeper Prabir Sen and last man Ghulam Ahmed to guide the team to a 140-run lead.Shodhan, who had replaced the indisposed captain Vijay Hazare in the XI after being in the reserves, did not get a chance to bat in the second innings in the drawn game and then got picked for the tour to the West Indies, played in the opening Test at Port of Spain and made 45 and 11 low down the order, before getting injured.He missed the middle three Tests before returning to the final one at Kingston, Jamaica only to remain absent hurt in the first innings and then making 15 not out in the second which was, strangely, his last appearance in the country’s colours although he played first class cricket till 1962.In 43 first class games he scored 1802 runs, with 4 hundreds and 7 fifties, at just over 31 per innings, besides taking 73 wickets at an average of 34.05. The final rites were being held today at Ahmedabad, the sources said. 0 SHARE SHARE EMAIL Deepak Shodhan   –  The Hindu × cricket COMMENTcenter_img Published on death SHARE May 16, 2016 First Indian to score ton in his debut innings.

first_img October 19, 2018 Ex-convict pleads not guilty to East Village murder, held on $5 million bail KUSI Newsroom, Categories: Local San Diego News FacebookTwitter KUSI Newsroom center_img SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — An ex-con who allegedly killed the proprietor of an East Village flooring-materials store at the victim’s downtown business during a robbery pleaded not guilty Friday to a murder charge that could lead to the death penalty if he’s convicted.Kevin Eugene Cartwright, 51, was ordered held on $5 million bail in the death of 49-year-old Ghedeer “Tony” Radda of El Cajon.The defendant faces a charge of murder with special circumstance allegations of murder during a robbery and murder during a burglary.District Attorney Summer Stephan will decide later whether Cartwright will face life in prison without the possibility of parole or capital punishment if he’s found guilty.Radda, a married father of two young children, was fatally shot at his Bottom Price Flooring store in the 1000 block of G Street on Oct. 10 about 3:30 p.m.Deputy District Attorney Matthew Greco called the attack on Radda “a calculated, violent and lethal ambush.”Radda was lured into a back room by a woman wearing a purple wig, Greco said.

Microsoft Invests 300 Million in Upcoming Barnes Noble NOOK Spinoff

first_imgBarnes & Noble did not immediately return request for comment on this news. B&N is counting its College business as an important factor in NewCo, “NOOK Study software will provide students and educators the preeminent technology platform for the distribution and management of digital education materials in the market.” After announcing plans to possibly spin off its NOOK business in January, Barnes & Noble enters into a partnership with Microsoft. The tech company invested $300 million in the new subsidiary (currently under the working title NewCo), a post-money valuation of $1.7 billion, equating to a 17.6 percent equity stake. Barnes & Noble retains an 82.4 percent ownership of the new subsidiary. This partnership follows the end of an ongoing patent dispute between the companies, as Microsoft previously claimed the use of Android on the NOOK violated its patents. A resolution has since been reached, “Barnes & Noble and Microsoft have settled their patent litigation, and moving forward, Barnes & Noble and NewCo will have a royalty-bearing license under Microsoft’s patents for its NOOK e-reader and tablet products. This paves the way for both companies to collaborate and reach a broader set of customers.” The partnership will “accelerate the transition to e-reading, which is revolutionizing the way people, consume, create, share and enjoy digital content,” according to a company press statement. NewCo will combine Barnes & Nobles’ digital and College businesses, though there is no official plan to completely spin off the business from the parent corporation quite yet, “The company intends to explore all alternatives for how a strategic separation of NewCo may occur. There can be no assurance that the review will result in a strategic separation or the creation of a stand-alone public company, and there is no set timetable for this review.”The company also stated it will not comment further regarding the review “unless and until a decision is made.”One result of the deal is NOOK access for Windows 8 users in the form of an app. William Lynch, CEO of Barnes & Noble, says of the partnership, ““The formation of NewCo and our relationship with Microsoft are important parts of our strategy to capitalize on the rapid growth of the NOOK business, and to solidify our position as a leader in the exploding market for digital content in the consumer and education segments.”last_img read more

2020 VW Golf slated for techrich October debut report says

first_img 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value Originally, it was believed that the 2020 Volkswagen Golf would make its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, perhaps alongside the ID electric hatchback’s production form. Now, a new report points to a later debut, but based on what the Golf will carry with it, the wait sounds worth it.The eighth-generation Volkswagen Golf is currently scheduled to make its formal debut in October, Automotive News Europe reported Tuesday, citing sources familiar with the matter. There are, according to ANE, two reasons for this: First, Volkswagen wants the ID to steal the spotlight at the show, as it’s a pretty important vehicle for the automaker; also, as earlier reports noted, VW did have some software setbacks to work through.But the Golf that shows itself to the world in October will be reportedly worth the weight. ANE’s report says that the eighth generation is positioning itself as “the benchmark for connectivity.” Standard features will allegedly include lane-keep assist, LED headlights and a massive digital cockpit in addition to a center-console screen no smaller than 8.25 inches.In addition to all that kit, most of which is currently relegated to more expensive Golf trims, there’s some interesting digital tech in there. The vehicle will reportedly be capable of vehicle-to-x communication, likely using the DSRC standard (802.11p) that the automaker has championed in the past. The new Golf should also carry a digital key option, which allows the vehicle to be opened using a phone instead of a key, although it’s unclear if this technology will rely on near-field communication like Hyundai’s, or if it will use Bluetooth Low Energy like the Tesla Model 3.The 2020 VW Golf will enter production in Wolfsburg, Germany, in the third quarter of 2019, the report says. Europe will be first to take a crack at the new hatchback; as with generations past, it’ll take about a year or so for the new Golf to make its way to the US.
