A 70-year-old man identified as IS from Muarojambi, Jambi, is being investigated for allegedly harassing eight teenagers.One of the alleged victims’ parents, Edi Hartono, said he first became suspicious of IS when he saw the man loitering around teens who were socializing outside their homes. “We’re angered by [IS] for harassing our children. They are innocent and we’re really concerned that these incidents would affect them psychologically. We’ve reported him to the police in hopes that he won’t harass anyone else,” Edi said as quoted by tribunnews.com. Muarojambi Police chief Sr. Adj. Comr. Ardiyanto confirmed that a team would investigate IS and the accusations leveled against him.IS has not been arrested.“While we conduct a preliminary investigation, we’ve secured [IS’s] house in an effort to avoid public anger […] We have yet to arrest him because we need to collect evidence,” said Ardiyanto, adding that if the preliminary investigation found evidence that supported the accusations, the police would charge him under the country’s sexual harassment and child protection laws. (dpk)Topics : Edi, a neighborhood unit (RW) head in Penyengat Olak village, also noticed that his children were in possession of Rp 50,000 (US$3.55), which they had not gotten from him.When Edi asked his children who had given them the money, his children reportedly pointed to IS.Edi and several other parents in the neighborhood then reported IS to the Muarojambi Police.Read also: High-achieving UII student to be stripped of honors after 30 women report him for alleged sexual abuse

NEW DELHI: Swashbuckling South African batsman David Miller has revealed his admiration for Shikhar Dhawan, saying the Indian opener is very professional in his outlook and is consistent as well.In an exclusive interview with IANS, the 31-year-old left-hander shared his views on his new IPL team – Rajasthan Royals, COVID-19 tests and also spoke about the famous six that made a policeman blind in one eye in 2015. Miller praised Dhawan’s aggressive approach to the game. “There are many cricketers that I admire. Growing up my role models were Matthew Hayden and Adam Gilchrist. Both of them were left-handers and always took the aggressive and positive route. Someone I’ve really enjoyed seeing batting in the IPL has been Shikhar Dhawan,” Miller said. “I just love how he goes about his game. I’ve got to know him as a person as well. He is extremely relaxed about his outlook on his game and is very professional. But at the same time, he understands that cricket is cricket and sometimes things turn out differently. But, yeah, just the way he goes about his business and is a really consistent performer. So, I really enjoy watching him bat.” Miller, who will feature for Rajasthan Royals in the upcoming Indian Premier League in the UAE starting September 19, revealed he also picked former national team-mate AB de Villiers’s brain to understand his mindset towards the game. “With AB, I’ve always had lots of discussions and I have always told him that he’s very lucky that I’m not a bowler because otherwise, he wouldn’t be scoring so many runs. Jokes aside, I’ve been talking with AB about the mindset he goes in with and stuff like that,” he said. “So, I’ve been really fortunate to have him around to chat with, regarding certain things to have had the relationship that I have with him playing for the Proteas for many years now.” Speaking of his maiden stint with Rajasthan Royals, the explosive batsman hinted that it won’t be a trouble for him to adjust in the team’s environment as he already knows many of their players. “I’ve known some of the guys at the Royals having played with and against some of them. I wouldn’t say that I know them too well but, obviously, I’ve known them as competitors. Tom Curran is someone I know pretty well and have got on really well with him in the past,” he said.

Without question the last 10 years has been the most impressive decade in Badger sports history.The basketball team danced in the Final Four, took home five different Big Ten championships and won 11 games in the NCAA Tournament. Football finished a season six times ranked in the AP top 25 and the hockey team earned its first national championship since 1990.Calling it a decent decade is like calling Morgan Freeman’s voice “nice.”Fortunately, all signs point to the “teens” being even better than the “aughts” for UW supporters — and yes, I apologize for using those ridiculous titles.With all three major programs still going strong, here are a few accomplishments Badger fans should be rooting for in the coming decade.Football Steps Up — Taking the Wisconsin football program from perennial doormat to consistent Big Ten force earned Barry Alvarez a bronzed statue in his honor and a permanent place in Badger lore. For current head coach Bret Bielema to repeat history, he must boost Wisconsin to the next level as well — meaning a consistent threat for a Big Ten Championship and BCS bowl berths.Strong recruiting and a bounce back season in 2009 suggest this scenario is extremely feasible.It’s pronounced WIS-con-sin — Supposed communications professionals continue to assert the Badgers are from Madison, WES-con-sin. Once again proving all announcers are idiots.Perhaps if UW makes a play for a national title in football Bob Griese will finally get it right. Then again, probably not.Final Four Appearance — Bo Ryan currently leads the greatest-coach-to-never-to-reach-the-Final Four pool. Most fans from Wisconsin appreciate just how good a coach he is, and it would be nice for the rest of the country to realize it too.Return to the Field House — Last on this wish list, and unfortunately, the least likely to come true, is seeing the basketball team return to the Field House for one game a season.This has been a pipe dream of mine for a while, and in the spirit of New Year’s wishes that have little basis in reality — such as all the fatties thinking they are going to lose weight at the SERF — I am going to promote it one more time.First, a little history.The Badgers moved from the Field House to the Kohl Center in 1998. Since taking up residence at the Kohl Center, the men’s basketball team has compiled a 153-16 record on its home court, at one point winning 38 in a row.Obviously home court advantage is not lacking in Wisconsin.Still, the Grateful Red can’t keep up Duke levels of energy for each game, and blowouts against the likes of Cal Poly and IPFW would put even the most diehard hoops fan to sleep.Enter the Field House.For one game a year — and we are talking a non-conference opponent who won’t bring much buzz to the Kohl Center — put the basketball team back in the cozier confines of the Field House. Like the Camp Randall Hockey Classic, open all tickets to the public and make it first-come, first-served.Imagine the impact of such an event.The most intense fans would show up, packed like sardines into an old-school gym right on top of the court. Duke’s Cameron Indoor Stadium has been lauded as one of the top home courts for several decades now, and part of it is the high school gym atmosphere. Noise has nowhere to go and lunatics literally surround the opposing team.The Badgers may not need much more of a home court advantage, but some extra intimidation never hurts.More importantly though, the novelty of the night would win over fans instantly — especially those ever important alumni boosters. Along with 5th quarter, sieve chants and Jump Around, Wisconsin could boast about starting another impressive tradition.UW could host a “Turn Back the Clock” night each year.Dress the players in throwback uniforms — don’t worry Trevon, I’m sure you can still wear shorts below the knees — invite elder Badgers for a pregame ceremony, honor the 1941 National Champions at half time; you know, make a giant PR event out of it.I mean really, who wouldn’t want to see one more game in a packed Field House?Crashing back to earth like Tony Romo, however, there is an obvious obstacle in the way of an otherwise awesome idea.Money.The Kohl Center seats 17,230. The Field House tops out at 11,500. Just suggest to the athletic department the loss of nearly 6,000 seats of revenue and my guess is you would be booted from the room quicker than Lady Gaga changes clothes.Plus, the Kohl Center is a veritable mine for advertising. It’s not long until we see the Grateful Red student section sponsored by Culver’s.There’s a good chance we will see Bo Ryan coach zone defense before the basketball team returns to its roots.Like all New Year’s resolutions, this one can best be described as wishful thinking.Reality’s a bitch.Michael is a senior majoring in journalism. Think he is onto something? Or is his dream of a return to the Field House simply delusional? E-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org
Senior outside hitter Samantha Bricio was named the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week for the second consecutive week. She started off the season with the nomination and received it once again. This is the fifth time that Bricio has been awarded the honor.This past weekend, Bricio and the Women of Troy played at the 2015 UNI Tournament in Cedar Falls, Iowa. Bricio was named the tournament MVP. This was the seventh time she received such an honor and the 12th time she was named to an all-tournament team.In her three matches at the tournament, Bricio surpassed the 1,000 career-dig mark and the 1,500 career-kill mark, making her only the sixth Woman of Troy to reach such a feat. She also collected her third double-double of the season and 44th of her career. She recorded three service aces in a match for the 29th time in her career.As a team, the No. 6 Women of Troy (6-0) jumped up two spots in the rankings after the tournament victory this past weekend. This is the 15th time in USC history that the team has started the season 6-0 and the ninth time under head coach Mick Haley. The Women of Troy are on a 17-straight-set win streak.For the conference as a whole, the Pac-12 has been having a dominant start to the 2015 volleyball season. To start off this season’s play, Pac-12 teams went 27-7 with 17 three-set sweeps.In recognition of their dominant play, eight teams are ranked in the Top 25 of the AVCA Coaches Poll with four being in the top 10: No. 3 Stanford, No. 6 USC, No. 8 Washington, No. 10 Arizona State, No. 12 Oregon, No. 13 Arizona, No. 17 UCLA and No. 23 Colorado.Four of the conference teams are still undefeated to open the season — Arizona, Arizona State, USC, Washington — and 10 teams have a record of .500 or better. Pac-12 teams have defeated seven ranked non-conference teams so far with USC leading the pack with three of those wins.Pac-12 teams can credit their success to the strength of their defense. Nine teams have kept their opponents to a .178 or worse hitting percentage. Arizona State is leading the charge by keeping their opponents to a .076 hitting average.The Conference of Champions is living up to their name in women’s volleyball. In the NCAA Tournament last season, the Pac-12 saw an unprecedented 10 teams receive bids and open up postseason play 10-0. The Pac-12 is grabbing a lot of attention in women’s volleyball. The conference once again has the most television coverage of any conference in the country with 95 matches broadcast live.The conference also dominates in recruiting. Seven teams landed at least one Volleyball Magazine FAB 50 player. Oregon led the conference with four recruits and Stanford signed the nation’s top recruit opposite Hayley Hodson, who has already made an immediate impact with the Cardinal.
Share Canada’s High Court has set a 20 November date for the ‘insider trading’ trial of former Amaya Inc CEO David Baazov by Quebec securities regulator Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF).Baazov faces 23-charges of illegal trades carried out over a six-year period as CEO of Amaya Inc. The AMF states that Baazov and twelve close associates had created a ‘sophisticated network’ for the purpose of executing ‘insider trades’, while in possession of privileged information, influencing or attempting to influence the market price of Amaya securities’.Bringing Baazov to court, Canadian news sources report that this will be the biggest insider trading investigation in the country’s corporate history. The AMF is said to be calling some 50 witnesses, including a dozen who do not reside in Canada and who may be allowed to testify via videoconference.The AMF has further confirmed that representatives of Amaya key financier Canaccord Genuity Securities will be asked to take a stand on Baazov’s hearings.Baazov and associates have pleaded not guilty to the charges. In August 2016 Baazov cut all-ties with Amaya Inc, removing himself as official leader of the TSX-listed firm. Furthermore, In November 2016 Baazov would end his pursuit of management takeover of Amaya assets, stating that he could not meet ‘premium investor demands’.Have been issued the official court date of Baazov and associates, Canadian business news sources have speculated that the trial will likely last some months due to the large number of witnesses called upon and ambiguous nature of the insider trading charges. ‘Deal maker’ Rafi Ashkenazi ends Flutter tenure August 27, 2020 Canada’s sports betting hearings threatened by Trudeau’s ’emergency recess’ August 24, 2020 Related Articles Share StumbleUpon Submit Federal or provincial… Canada stuck at regulatory crossroads July 15, 2020
Whilst World of Tanks is a game known to many, both as a game and as an esport, World of Tanks Blitz is not quite so well known. The Wargaming title is a cross-platform free-to-play MMO action game using tanks. It’s available on iOS, Google Play, Mac OS, Windows Store and Steam so it’s a wide range of platforms. The game has over 250 tanks available for the user and through the use of one dedicated Wargaming.net ID, progress can be directly transferred across platforms by the users.Recently, the Twister Cup was announced for WoT Blitz which will see the four best in the world compete in Minsk, Belarus. We caught up with Daria Klimchuk, Head of World of Tanks Blitz esports earlier in the week. We also had the chance to have a chat with Andrey Pyabovol, the Publishing Director of WoT Blitz.ESI: What goes into the design of a mobile esports title?Andrey: Mobile esports titles should have two key components to be successful. First, it should allow players to demonstrate outstanding skills both in micro and macro gaming. Being good at driving, shooting, ‘tanking’ and dozens of other aspects differ pro gamers from casual gamers. Top teams also show tactical skills in battle and strategical skills during the tournament. Second, the game should be appealing and entertaining for viewers.“We value and pay a lot of attention to controls responsiveness on devices, because that’s what players deal with every second in the game.” It doesn’t matter if the game is watched on a mobile device or TV, it should be interesting. If a title has these two main components, then it’s good for esports. As a developer, our goal is to improve those aspects of the game, and provide players with more means to show their skills. We also may need to change the battle meta along the way if we see that the battles are not fair or interesting, and of course run more tournaments. The same goes for viewers; there are many things that we can do to make the game more entertaining and accessible for viewers. ESI: How difficult is it to optimise a game as complex as World of Tanks for a mobile device?Andrey: It was a very complex task to adapt the controls and mechanics of World of Tanks for a mobile device. A lot of fine-tuning, prototyping and core tech alterations were done to make World of Tanks Blitz accessible. We value and pay a lot of attention to controls responsiveness on devices, because that’s what players deal with every second in the game. And of course, that’s very important for esports. Our own technology—the DAVA engine—allows us to do that and have World of Tanks Blitz ready for esports. Every millisecond is super important “I believe that the most appealing thing is that World of Tanks Blitz is a top competitive FPS game on mobile. It lets people have similar fun to what they have playing the version on PC or console titles.”ESI: Do you see more titles releasing mobile versions? We’ve seen the likes of Vainglory and Arena of Valor on the MOBA side; do you think FPS games have a mobile future?Andrey: I believe that we’ll see more mobile FPS titles jumping into eSports, and it’s actually already happening. Games like Guns of Boom, Battle Bay has the potential to open a new niche in mobile esports. ESI: How close does World of Tanks Blitz follow the normal PC version of World of Tanks? Andrey: World of Tanks Blitz and World of Tanks share the same genre—a slow-paced shooter. It’s a set of mechanics and core gameplay features that make both games fun to play. However, our tanks and maps are different; the length of sessions and battle intensity are platform-specific. Also, the setting of both games differs a lot: World of Tanks is a more solid, history-based game, while World of Tanks Blitz can afford to experiment and make fantasy tanks like Dracula, Tankenstein, or tanks from Warhammer 40K universe.ESI: Do you believe those who play on bigger devices such as tablets have an inherent advantage over typical mobile players?Andrey: This is an interesting question. We assume that bigger devices with a higher display area can gain an advantage; however, last year, during the previous Twister Cup, we saw players with phones on stage. And they were very successful. I’d say that this is all individual and players can choose the gear which fits them best. I think it is similar to PC esports, where players choose their own mouse, keyboard and settings for these devices. More and more high-performance mobile gear has started to appear for pro players. ESI: What do you think is most appealing to players about World of Tanks Blitz?Andrey: I believe that the most appealing thing is that World of Tanks Blitz is a top competitive FPS game on mobile. It lets people have similar fun to what they have playing the version on PC or console titles. That’s very uncommon on mobile, where more casual and less hardcore titles rule. And that’s what we love about World of Tanks Blitz in Wargaming.
