'Poor old Jason Roy is not having a very good ICC Cricket World Cup tournament.The 28-year old had picked up a hamstring injury when England faced the West Indies on the 14th of June.This put him out of action against Afghanistan and Sri Lanka and things were quite positive for him to return against Australia.Until, his chances took a nosedive recently as his participation looks in serious doubt.The good news is that the batsman did come out to train with the rest of the England squad.He underwent a scan at the Fortius Clinic in London before heading to the iconic Lord’s Cricket Ground.To the delight of his team, he trained at the nets and even participated in throwdowns to test out his left leg.However, in spite of the positive vibes, England skipper, Eoin Morgan was quick to avoid complacence. “I think to put one game on it, I don’t think it’s sensible,” admitted Morgan during the pre-match press conference. “Let’s just see how it goes. “It’s Jason Roy, of course, it’s a big loss.He’s an outstanding performer for us as he plays.He reminds us how to play as a group.He’s been part of the team for a very long time.” With Jason Roy being advised to take things easy, James Vince will continue to bat in his stead.The bad news is, Vince has not been firing for the past few matches, being dismissed for 14 and 26 respectively.However, Morgan has kept the faith in Vince and is confident in his abilities. “No, not at all,” said Morgan. “We have every faith in him to go on and get a score, to continue playing his own way. “James Vince is an incredibly talented and gifted player.You can see that in the way he plays.” .

This is how coffee can help you lose weight

'London: Drinking coffee may stimulate the body’s own fat-fighting defences, which could be the key to tackling obesity and diabetes, a study claims. The study, published in the journal Scientific Reports, is one of the first to be carried out in humans to find components which could have a direct effect on ‘brown fat’ functions, which plays a key role in how quickly we can burn calories as energy. Brown adipose tissue (BAT), also known as brown fat, is one of two types of fat found in humans and other mammals, said researchers from the University of Nottingham in the UK. Initially only attributed to babies and hibernating mammals, it was discovered in recent years that adults can have brown fat too. Its main function is to generate body heat by burning calories, opposed to white fat, which is a result of storing excess calories. People with a lower body mass index (BMI) therefore have a higher amount of brown fat. “Brown fat works in a different way to other fat in your body and produces heat by burning sugar and fat, often in response to cold,” said Professor Michael Symonds, from the University of Nottingham. “Increasing its activity improves blood sugar control as well as improving blood lipid levels and the extra calories burnt help with weight loss. However, until now, no one has found an acceptable way to stimulate its activity in humans,” said Symonds. “This is the first study in humans to show that something like a cup of coffee can have a direct effect on our brown fat functions. The potential implications of our results are pretty big, as obesity is a major health concern for society and we also have a growing diabetes epidemic and brown fat could potentially be part of the solution in tackling them,” he said. The team started with a series of stem cell studies to see if caffeine would stimulate brown fat. Once they had found the right dose, they then moved on to humans to see if the results were similar. The team used a thermal imaging technique, which they had previously pioneered, to trace the body’s brown fat reserves. The non-invasive technique helps the team to locate brown fat and assess its capacity to produce heat. “From our previous work, we knew that brown fat is mainly located in the neck region, so we were able to image someone straight after they had a drink to see if the brown fat got hotter,” said Symonds. “The results were positive and we now need to ascertain that caffeine as one of the ingredients in the coffee is acting as the stimulus or if there’s another component helping with the activation of brown fat. We are currently looking at caffeine supplements to test whether the effect is similar. “Once we have confirmed which component is responsible for this, it could potentially be used as part of a weight management regime or as part of glucose regulation programme to help prevent diabetes,” he said.

UK falling behind in race to engage with India, warns UK Parliament inquiry

'London: The UK is falling behind in the global race to engage with India as it has failed to adjust its strategy to fit India’s enhanced influence and power on the world stage, a new British parliamentary inquiry report concluded on Monday. The report ‘Building Bridges: Reawakening UK-India ties’, released to coincide with the first-ever India Day in the Houses of Parliament to mark the launch of UK-India Week 2019, called for a reset of ties through better visa and immigration policies for Indian tourists, students and professionals as it accuses the UK government of missing opportunities in the bilateral relationship. “The UK is falling behind in the global race to engage with a rising India…The story of the UK’s recent relationship with India is primarily one of missed opportunities, the report said. There are certain practical steps the government must take to reset its relationship with India, in particular making it easier for Indians to visit the UK and to work or study here, it noted. On the issue of visas, it expressed concern that India seems to face tougher norms than a non-democratic country like China. “There is no excuse for the migration policies that have led the UK to lose ground in attracting Indian students and tourists who not only contribute to our economy but build lasting bilateral ties. “The FCO (Foreign and Commonwealth Office) should ensure that the goal of improving the overall relationship with India is woven into the broader government migration policy. Something has gone wrong, if it is more difficult for citizens of a strategically important democracy that shares our values, language and history to visit or study in the UK than those of an autocracy such as China.” While the inquiry acknowledged that in all fundamental respects the UK is well placed to capitalise on a mutually beneficial relationship with India, it warned that the relationship between the two democracies is not fulfilling its potential because the right message is not going out to New Delhi. “As the UK prepares to leave the EU, it is time to reset this relationship. We cannot afford to be complacent or rely on historical connections to deliver a modern partnership, it said. The report follows the year-long “Global Britain and India” inquiry, launched by the House of Commons’ cross-party Foreign Affairs Committee (FAC) in July last year to explore the India-UK relationship in the context of Britain’s impending exit from the European Union (EU). Through a series of oral and written submissions from a diverse range of organisations and individuals working within the UK-India corridor, the influential parliamentary committee concluded that the UK must prioritise talks with India and do more to lay the groundwork for an eventual free trade agreement. The Indian Ocean is identified as a vital arena for closer defence and security cooperation between the two countries. “The FCO should take care to ensure that stronger economic ties with China are not at the expense of a deeper partnership with India, it warned. Tom Tugendhat, Conservative Party MP and Chair of the FAC, raised the issue of the UK government’s failure to formally apologise for the Jallianwala Bagh massacre during the British Raj in time for its 100th anniversary in April this year as an important symbolic opportunity which was missed. He said: As new powers challenge the structure of global trade and dispute resolution, we cannot miss the opportunity to partner with India. Trade, security, a shared commitment to the rules-based international system these are all factors in our growing and evolving partnership. The government needs to make sure the UK is making its support for India clear, reawakening the ties between us and building bridges that are made to last. The report’s findings are expected to feature heavily during the course of UK-India Week, organised by UK-based media house India Inc, which includes a high-profile Leaders’ Summit in Buckinghamshire, south-east England.@PTI'

Murray mulls over US Open singles return

Former world number one Andy Murray says he could resurrect his singles career at this year's US Open following a remarkable return to tennis with victory in the men's doubles at the Queen's Club tournament on Sunday.
'London: Former world number one Andy Murray says he could resurrect his singles career at this year’s US Open following a remarkable return to tennis with victory in the men’s doubles at the Queen’s Club tournament on Sunday.The 32-year-old Scotsman teamed up with Spanish partner Feliciano Lopez to take a 7-6 (8/6), 5-7, 10-5 win over Britain’s Joe Salisbury and Rajeev Ram of the United States.The three-time Grand Slam champion’s triumph comes after what he described as ‘life-changing’ hip surgery earlier this year.Murray said that while he had not made up his mind about a return to singles, the US Open would be the tournament where it could happen.If so, it would be a remarkable turnaround for a man who was tearfully pondering retirement in January and has seen his singles ranking tumble to 215 in the world. “I mean, potentially, yeah,” he said when pressed as to whether the US Open — where he won his first Grand Slam title in 2012 — could be the place to resume his singles career. “But I don’t care, really, either way.Like, it would be nice to play at the US Open, but if I don’t — look, I got so much enjoyment and happiness after winning a first-round doubles match here that, you know, that’s enough.I don’t have to be getting to the US Open this year and be really competitive and have to win the tournament for me to enjoy it.” Murray, also a two-time Olympic singles champion, said he had to be mindful about his hip, although he came through the week at Queen’s pain free. “It’s not just to get back on the court playing singles,” he said. “It’s to protect my hip for the longer term to make sure that my muscles are in the correct balance so that I’m not impacting the hip in the same spot all of the time.I need to improve the range of motion in my hip as well so that when I’m changing the direction that there is a bit more freedom for it to move around.” Murray — watched by his wife Kim and mother Judy on Sunday — may be regretting deciding not to play with the 37-year-old Lopez at Wimbledon.The Spaniard produced a Herculean effort, winning the singles title in three sets earlier in the day against Gilles Simon of France before playing sublimely in the doubles.Murray praised Lopez for his extraordinary feat of endurance which saw him out on court for over 15 hours during the week — and added the title meant more than some of the singles titles he has won. “This is very different for me, and it’s more special than a lot of the singles tournaments that I have won for a lot of different reasons,” he said. “I just won the doubles here with Feli (Lopez), you know, with a metal hip.It’s mental, really.That’s a cool thing to be able to have done, and yeah, just because of probably where I was a few months ago.At times, even as far as just two months ago, I just wasn’t thinking about this.” Murray will now move on to Eastbourne before playing at Wimbledon where he will be partnered by Frenchman Pierre-Hugues Herbert. .

And in keeping with the mood and the pace of the gritty narrative, Ayushmann, too, completed his portion in just about a month. Article 15 is set to get a world premiere at the tenth edition of the London Indian Film Festival. The investigative drama will be shown on the opening night. The film also stars Isha Talwar, M Nassar, Manoj Pahwa, Sayani Gupta, Kumud Mishra and Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub.Directed by Anubhav Sinha and Produced by Benaras Media Works and Zee Studios, the film is sure to put the audience through a social perspective and is set to release on 28 June 2019.
