Captain is as good as his team,” Bhuvneshwar said at the post-match press conference.The Sunrisers captain said it was a difficult wicket to bat on and as the tournament progresses all the pitches across the country will behave in similar fashion.“With the toss we were not sure how the wicket was going to play. We were not surprised but we knew it wouldn’t be too slow in the second innings,” he said.“Second half of the IPL, it’s going to be slow all over India, and we have to be choosy with our eleven.”Also Read: IPL 2019: Rajasthan Royals’ schedule, tickets, squad, coach: All you need to knowIPL 2019: Kings XI Punjab launch Box Office ticket salesIPL 2019: Kolkata Knight Riders’ schedule, squad, tickets, coach – All you need to…Delhi Capitals captain Shreyas Iyer said the batting department let his side down yet another day in the ongoing IPL.“Last two games have been the same. Tough wicket and since they bowled first, they had a bit of an idea how to go about it. We didn’t bat well. It’s another learning, we should come back positively,” he said.“After the first time-out, we thought 140-150 would have been a great total. And we had three spinners, so we could have pounced on them. Unfortunately we were short. I needed a little bit of support from someone at the other end from someone in the top 4. But it’s a good lesson for us.“The way we came back in the second innings was appreciable. The bowlers came up and that is good to see,” he added.Man-of-the-match Jonny Bairstow, who struck a quickfire 48 off 28 deliveries, too opined that the wicket on offer Thursday at the Feroze Shah Kotla stadium was a difficult one for shot-making.“There was probably a little less bounce. It was a good toss to win, so we were able to see how to play on wickets like that. Probably the first such pitch we’ve come across this season,” he said.“I am really pleased with the start, just going to try and keep going.

Image source: Getty Images. Pam Narang | Wednesday, 5th May, 2021 | More on: AZN AstraZeneca stock: time to sell? Learn how you can grab this ‘Top Income Stock’ Report now Thoughts of AstraZeneca (LSE: AZN) invariably bring to mind all things vaccine, and in fact much of the recent volatility in the company’s share price has been driven by news-flow around the Covid-19 vaccine. But not all of it. Merger and acquisition (M&A), product approvals, and the most recent earnings call have all moved the needle on AstraZeneca stock. Over 52 weeks, its share price has ranged from GBP 67.36 to 101.20, and the temptation for me to sell now and make a quick return on the back of the current upswing is high, particularly so given near-term prospects for the company and its modest dividend. On balance, though, I think I’ll hold for now, as the uptick continues. Here’s why.The (moderately) good…On the Q1 2020 earnings call, AstraZeneca reported an 11% increase in total revenues relative to the same time last year, at $7.3 billion in Q1 2021. Taking out Covid-19 vaccine related sales, year-on-year growth was still strong at 7%, driven by oncology sales and what the company terms its new CVRM (cardiovascular, renal, metabolic) franchise.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…AstraZeneca’s leading oncology products include Tagrisso and Imfinzi, which grew by 17% and 20% in Q1, respectively, despite the headwinds of Covid-19. At the end of last year, Tagrisso picked up an additional indication in the US for the adjuvant treatment of particular patients with non-small cell lung cancer, and in April of this year gained a similar approval from the EMA.Farxiga, or Forxiga in Europe, is the catalyst behind AstraZeneca’s new CVRM franchise, and was initially approved to treat type 2 diabetes. However, growth in Farxiga has been driven by additional heart failure indications in both the US and Europe over the last two years, and is set to really take off following the new FDA approval for chronic kidney failure – a large, under-served market – announced in the last week.Geographically speaking, AstraZeneca has had a good quarter for its stock, with all regions pulling their weight, and it is notable that the company outperforms many of its peers in China, where AstraZeneca has succeeded in getting 15 drugs on the essential drug list. Full-year guidance for 2021, which excluded Covid-19 vaccine impact and Alexion integration (see below), remains unchanged.The (moderately) bad…AstraZeneca’s development and manufacture of a not-for-profit Covid-19 vaccine was, at the outset, an entirely laudable endeavour, and remains so, despite all that has transpired and the sense that it has become something of a debacle. But the mismanagement of clinical data read-outs and deep problems with meeting manufacture and supply commitments are more indicative of the company’s inexperience in the vaccine arena than anything else. And the ongoing news-flow concerning the very rare risk of thrombosis related side effects really hasn’t helped matters.And something else entirely…Last month, the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) approved AstraZeneca’s acquisition of rare-disease drug maker Alexion, despite initial indications that the trade body may take a tougher stance on M&A in biopharma. The December 2020 announcement of AstraZeneca’s intention to buy Alexion for $39 billion was not well received and prompted a 7.8% drop in AstraZeneca stock that month. However, Alexion’s focus on rare diseases provides an interesting counterpoint to AstraZeneca’s therapeutic footprint across the ‘big’ chronic disease markets (diabetes, cardiovascular, CKD, asthma, and COPD) and offers up the opportunity to broaden Alexion’s expertise in the immune complement cascade. We think that when a company’s CEO owns 12.1% of its stock, that’s usually a very good sign.But with this opportunity it could get even better.Still only 55 years old, he sees the chance for a new “Uber-style” technology.And this is not a tiny tech startup full of empty promises.This extraordinary company is already one of the largest in its industry.Last year, revenues hit a whopping £1.132 billion.The board recently announced a 10% dividend hike.And it has been a superb Motley Fool income pick for 9 years running!But even so, we believe there could still be huge upside ahead.Clearly, this company’s founder and CEO agrees.

Its first aim is to learn from how charities and digital entrepreneurs currently work with technology to support giving.“Then, working in partnership with entrepreneurs, tech experts, business experts and charitable bodies, Spring will research and map emerging approaches to tech-enabled giving, and understand how the best approaches can grow and evolve.”www.spring-giving.org.uk

Previous articleUSDA Reports Don’t Help their “Credibility Problem”Next articlePork Producers Ready to Expand Gary Truitt That is what is the real issue: parents not teaching their kids good eating habits or even modeling those habits themselves. This gives the nanny state the justification for taking away personal choices. Yet, there are indications that consumers are getting fed up with being told what they can and cannot eat. Last month, a Gallup poll determined that 69% of Americans would not vote for portion control in soft drinks. This echoes findings by the Associated Press that showed wide opposition to the food police’s “fat tax” efforts. According to the Center for Consumer Freedom, “The American people don’t want to be policed and the polling, votes, and judicial decisions have shown it. The soda fear-mongers should take a hint, get off of their high horse, and take our advice and enjoy a nice gulp of freedom.” Facebook Twitter U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack says the nation’s students will have healthier food options during the school day under USDA’s new Smart Snacks in School nutrition standards. USDA was required to establish nutrition standards for all foods sold in schools by the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The targets of the new restrictions are soft drinks, candy, and chips — products with high sugar, fat, or salt levels. The justification for these new rules is the health of the children. Yet, ironically, “standards only affect foods that are sold on school campus during the school day. Foods sold at afterschool sporting events or other activities will not be subject to these requirements,” according to a USDA release. Home Commentary Land of the Free Does Not Apply to Food This week we celebrate our nation’s freedom. We will fly our flags and set off our fireworks in celebration of the founding of the United States and the signing of the Declaration of Independence. It is an interesting fact of history that one of the first things we did after throwing off the yoke of British rule and military occupation was to create a federal government that started putting limits on personal freedom. Last week the USDA continued that effort by taking away freedom of choice for students attending public schools. A year ago USDA put restrictions of the kind of food that was served in school lunchrooms, now they have placed limits on what food can be sold in schools outside of the lunch line. By Gary Truitt – Jun 30, 2013 SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter So this July 4th holiday, celebrate our freedom by eating your favorite foods — in moderation — while you still can. -Gary Truitt I also found it interesting that, at the same time Washington was expelling sodas and snacks from school, Congress rejected efforts to modify the US sugar program which keeps the price of sugar artificially high. They also could not agree on how to reform the SNAP program which allows those on food stamps to use government funds to purchase sodas and snacks. Statements from top administration officials reveal the “we know what is best for you” philosophy that the government’s increasing restrictions on consumer food choices demonstrate. First Lady Michelle Obama said in the statement, “Unfortunately, we don’t always have control over the snacks our kids have access to when they’re away from home. That’s why, as a mom myself, I am so excited that schools will now be offering healthier choices to students and reinforcing the work we do at home to help our kids stay healthy.” Perhaps if she taught her kids good eating habits and personal responsibility, they would be able to make their own healthy food choices.

The Indiana wheat harvest is nearing completion; and, right behind the combine, are planters for double crop soybeans.Wheat yield numbers in Southern Indiana are proving to be highly variable. Agronomist Brian Bush says the early May freeze has resulted in big yield cuts in some areas.“I have some growers reporting 40 bpa yields, very disappointing. Down the road, however, there are some yields at 90 bpa. I had one farmer tell me this was the best wheat crop he had ever grown.”The difference depends on what stage the crop was in when temperatures dropped into the mid-20s in early May.It is a tradition in Southern Indiana to plant soybeans after wheat; but, with a hot dry July in store, Bush warns germinating those seeds could be an issue. He recommends planting deeper.“Those seeds will need some moisture to germinate. By planting a little deeper, you can get them closer to the moisture.”He adds that it makes no sense to plant in the dust and to just wait for a rain.Bush notes the E3 soybeans from Pioneer are doing very well.“We are seeing many growers having good results with the Enlist system. It provides some good late season weed control in double crop soybeans.” Facebook Twitter Update on Wheat Harvest and Double Crop Soybeans Facebook Twitter SHARE By Gary Truitt – Jul 12, 2020 SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Update on Wheat Harvest and Double Crop Soybeans Previous articleUSDA Accepts Over One Million Acres in CRP GrasslandsNext articleGrocery Stores Slowly Catching Up With Demand Gary Truitt

She has worked for TCU360 since her freshman year, and she is currently the Executive Editor of The Skiff. The Skiff: April 15, 2021 Twitter Linkedin printTexas is one of the 14 states holding its presidential primary on March 3rd, commonly referred to as Super Tuesday. The results of the primary election will help determine the division of delegates to each of the presidential candidates.Texas has 261 delegates to divvy up, and the state will have a large impact in determining which candidate will receive the Democratic nomination. To receive any delegates in Texas, a candidate must get at least 15% of the vote; delegates are then divided proportionally among the candidates who meet that threshold.Texas has an open primary, meaning that all voters, regardless of the political party with which they are registered, can participate. Cal Jillson, a professor of political science at Southern Methodist University, said he expects a lot of interest and high turnout in the Texas Democratic primary. “In 2020, I expect us to be at least where we were in 2016, but maybe not all the way up to where we were in the 2008 primary,” Jillson said. “(2008) had a record turnout for a primary election in Texas.”Current polls have Sen. Bernie Sanders narrowly leading former Vice President Joe Biden, at 23.5% and 21%, respectively. “I think you have to think of it as Sanders being ahead in Texas and rising a little bit, and Biden is second in Texas and maybe falling a little bit,” Jillson said. “So it’s a little hard to tell what the results will be in the primary.”He added that Biden could take back his lead in Texas by performing well in other states that will vote before Super Tuesday. He is expected to do well in South Carolina, but a victory there still might not be enough of a boost to help him win in Texas because early voting has already started.“About half of Texans will have voted before they hear what happens in South Carolina,” Jillson said. “So even if it is a Biden win, it’s not gonna do him as much good on Super Tuesday as it might have in other years.”With Sanders leading in the polls in most Super Tuesday states, he could be the nominee if he continues to succeed in the primaries.Jillson said Sanders is winning because he took over the progressive vote as Sen. Elizabeth Warren lost her lead, and the group of moderate candidates has divided the moderate voters. “I think the reason that Sanders seems to be doing so well right now is that no single moderate has yet emerged and they continue to split the vote,” he said. Jillson said there is also a chance Sanders will have a plurality, rather than a majority, at the convention, causing a contested convention. In the case of a contested convention, Sanders could face opposition from the other candidates who wish to stop him from getting the nomination if he doesn’t have a majority. “In the bargaining over who should be the nominee, the question is whether or not he comes out on top because he has more delegates,” Jillson said. “Or the moderates gang up on him to deny him the nomination.”Jillson said a contested convention could be harmful to Democrats in the general election because Sanders’ supporters “would be up in arms.”Heading into the primary election, Jillson said everyone, especially young people, should start thinking about voting.“Voting is important, and more young people should do it,” he said. “Voting is a habit, and if you get in the habit of voting early, you’ll probably be a regular voter all your life.”

Not just from room to room, but from place to place.In other words, to be able to drive.â€œItâ€™s a freedom that people with disabilities should have. It gives us a lot of independence,â€ says Katie Estrella, a young spinal cord injury-afflicted driver.The idea of driving may seem far-fetched to some. Many disabled people feel they are forever relegated to being helpless passengers, but nothing could be further from the truth.Mobility Works, a company that specializes in adaptive vehicles for the disabled, aims to set the disabled free with its line of vehicles and equipment to help the handicapped move around as they wish.“What we do is personalized client care. Mobility Works, in a nutshell, provides independence to thousands of individuals,” says Steve Casaus, General Manager at Mobility Works Pasadena.Greater independence. More freedom.

If they have hooks [for hands], we have a spinner knob [that] has controls on it. They can just push a button for the AC, change the music, or push the button for the turning signals.”Mobility Works can also install conversions to a wide variety of car brands.“We do Dodge, Chrysler, Honda, Toyota, those are the vans that we work with,” Casaus explains.As Casaus puts it: “We find solutions to get people back in, to the real world, not looking up from a bedroom ceiling.”Mobility Works is located at 325 N.
