ARCADIA, Calif. (Jan. 1, 2017)–With the mighty Arrogate declared from the race earlier in the day, trainer Phil D’Amato’s Midnight Storm assumed the mantle of heavily backed favorite and he didn’t disappoint, taking Sunday’s Grade II, $200,000 San Pasqual Stakes by 1 ¼ lengths under Rafael Bejarano while getting a mile and a sixteenth in 1:40.65 over Santa Anita’s wet fast main track.Breaking from the outside in a field of four older horses, Midnight Storm went to the lead as expected, but was immediately engaged by eventual third place finisher Dalmore, who although he was never able to draw even with him, pressed the winner through splits of 23.02, 45.59, 1:08.93 and 1:33.98.“I knew I had to put my horse on the lead,” said Bejarano. “I needed a good start and when I put him on the lead, I felt the pressure right away. Dalmore was right next to me, chasing me the whole way. I kept him on the lead but tried to give him a breather at the half mile pole. At the three eighths I knew he would keep running. He loves to be on the lead and he always gives me something else.”A Grade I stakes winner on turf, Midnight Storm came off a rousing 7 ¾ length win on dirt in the Grade III Native Diver Stakes at Del Mar on Nov. 27 and was thus dispatched as the 3-5 favorite today. With no show wagering, he paid $3.20 and $2.10.“I thought he’d love the surface,” said D’Amato. “They were going fast. I saw 45 and 1:08 and change and he dug in there gamely and held them off today. We were going to the lead, whether Arrogate was in or not…We thought Accelerate would be the one pressing us, not Dalmore, but it still worked out and he maintained through some grueling fractions and he showed his class in the stretch.”Owned by A Venneri Racing, Inc. and Little Red Feather Racing, Midnight Storm, a 6-year-old horse by Pioneerof the Nile, notched his 10th win from 21 starts and with the winner’s share of $120,000, increased his earnings to $1,461,110.Last after the first half mile, Accelerate, who was ridden by Tyler Baze, flew late for second money, finishing 2 ½ lengths in front of Dalmore. Off at 7-2, Accelerate paid $3.00 to place.“He’s going to be a super horse, I really mean that,” said Baze. “I think John’s going to try blinkers next time and we’ll try to get him into the race a little sooner. He’s going to be a special horse.”Santa Anita will be open for special holiday racing on Monday, with first post time for a nine-race card at 12:30 p.m. Admission gates open at 10:30 a.m.
6 March 2012 Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies stressed the importance of the steel industry to South Africa’s economic development as he officially opened Mauritius-based Safal Steel’s new R1-billion metal coating facility in Cato Ridge, KwaZulu-Natal on Monday. “This investment, supported by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) and in which the Industrial Development Corporation also participated, clearly demonstrates Safal Group’s confidence in South Africa as an investment destination and the maturity of our steel industry.” The facility has a capacity of 150 000 tons a year of both un-painted and painted coated coil, which is sold on to the roofing and general engineering sectors. There are plans to double the volumes to 300 000 tons in the near future.One of SA’s largest manufacturing sectors Speaking at the opening of the facility, Davies said the steel industry was one of largest manufacturing sectors in South Africa’s economy and critical from an economic development point of view. “The facility is manufacturing and supplying coated steel roofing to both the local and global markets, with 60 percent of the product targeted for the local market and the balance for exports,” Davies noted. “The facility has already created 370 jobs, mainly employing people from local community, Durban and Pietermaritzburg.” Davies emphasised the linkages between infrastructure development and manufacturing, and said that investment projects that enhanced productive capacity should be supported.Business, government partnership The minister said the plant bore testimony to the important partnership that had been built between business and the government, and the role that business was playing in the country’s economic and industrial development. Through the DTI’s Enterprise Investment Programme, R30-million was approved for the investment, of which R22.5-million had been paid, and R9-million in support was granted under the DTI’s Critical Infrastructure Programme. The Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) also provided significant funding facilities for the project. Davies said his department understood the significance of the project and would assist in dealing with challenges that might hinder its long-term viability. Safal Group currently operates in 16 African countries. Source: BuaNews

BILLINGS, Mont. – U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has closely followed his boss’ playbook, encouraging mining and drilling on public lands and reducing the size of national monuments that President Donald Trump called a “massive land grab” by his Democratic predecessors.Except, that is, in Montana.In Zinke’s home state, the former congressman who has long harboured higher political ambitions is recommending Trump create a new national monument out of the forests bordering Glacier National Park, to the disappointment of a company that wants to drill for natural gas there.A couple hundred miles away, where rocky bluffs line the Missouri River, he decided to leave intact a 590-square-mile (1,528-square-kilometre) monument that for 16 years has stirred the kind of impassioned local opposition that Zinke cited in justifying changes to monuments elsewhere.And he wants to curb mining along Montana’s border with Yellowstone National Park. That could discourage development of two proposed mines that supporters say would offer higher paying jobs than tourism.The decision was based on Zinke’s belief that “some places are too precious to mine,” his spokeswoman said last month.Zinke, a rumoured candidate for U.S. Senate in 2018 or governor in 2020, appears to be carving out an exception for Montana from Trump’s agenda to open more public lands to natural resources development. Whether it stems from Montana pride or political ambition in a state where conservation has bipartisan appeal, the results have rankled both sides in the debate over managing millions of acres of public lands in the U.S. West.“It’s totally favouritism,” said Land Tawney, president of the conservation group Backcountry Hunters and Anglers.Tawney is a friend of the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr., and his group threw its support behind Zinke’s nomination last winter. But he said the Interior secretary’s recommendations to scale back four large monuments in the West, including Bears Ears in Utah, represent a “sellout to industry” that’s putting public land and wildlife at risk. Zinke also called for shrinking two marine monuments in the Pacific Ocean.“We’re happy he recognizes the importance of the Badger Two-Medicine,” Tawney said, referring to the 203-square-mile (526-square-kilometre) area south of Glacier that Zinke recommends be a monument. “Places that are very similar in fashion, like Bears Ears, he’s not quite protecting. … You can’t talk out of both sides of your mouth.”Zinke spokeswoman Heather Swift declined to comment on how he came to recommend a monument designation for Badger-Two Medicine or whether he was treating public lands in Montana differently than elsewhere.Of the 27 monuments that Trump in May ordered Zinke to review, the Interior Department so far has publicly identified six that would not be modified in some fashion, including the one in Montana and monuments in Washington, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho and California.Zinke’s recommendations for smaller monuments include a second site in Utah and locations in Nevada and Oregon. He also would allow logging at a Maine monument and more grazing, hunting and fishing at two sites in New Mexico.In his recommendations to Trump, contained in a recently leaked memo, Zinke noted that the Badger-Two Medicine area is sacred to the Blackfoot tribes of the U.S. and Canada.Zinke also suggested monument status for two other sites: Camp Nelson in Kentucky, a Union supply depot and hospital where black troops and others trained during the Civil War, and the Jackson, Mississippi, home of slain civil rights figure Medgar Evers.Badger-Two Medicine has been the subject of a long-running dispute between the Blackfeet Tribe, which has a reservation next to the proposed monument, and a Louisiana oil and gas company, Solenex, which wants to drill on the land.Zinke’s recommendation for the area presents an “optics problem” at a time when the Trump administration has criticized the use of the 1906 Antiquities Act to create monuments, said William Perry Pendley, president of the conservative Mountain States Legal Foundation, which is representing Solenex.“It’s terribly disappointing,” Pendley said. “What the secretary ought to be sending to the president is a recommendation to repeal the Antiquities Act, to put an end to this issue.”Pendley compared Zinke’s actions to those of President Bill Clinton in 1996, when he halted a gold mine near Yellowstone, and of the Obama administration last year, when it proposed to end new mining claims on 30,000 acres near the park, which Zinke now supports.Zinke has made no secret of his political desires. In his first term in the U.S. House, he raised his hand to become speaker but didn’t get chosen after Ohio Rep. John Boehner resigned. Last year, Zinke became an early supporter of Trump and publicly stated his desire to be picked as vice-president.In Montana, he’s been viewed as a potential contender against U.S. Sen. Jon Tester, a Democrat up for re-election next year whom Republicans consider vulnerable. Analysts say it’s not too late for Zinke to jump in.Another possibility arises in 2020 when Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, a Democrat, reaches his two-term limit.Residents in the tiny ranching community of Winifred were disappointed by Zinke’s decision to leave intact the nearby Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument, which they have fought since Clinton designated it in January 2001 in one of his last acts in office.When Trump and Zinke arrived in Washington, they seemed to promise the changes the community long sought, said Ron Poertner, a rancher and member of the group Missouri River Stewards.“We thought, ‘Oh, my gosh, somebody has finally seen the light and is going to get this monument business right,’” Poertner said.“But there’s just one person per mile over here and these liberals and big media can out-organize us in a heartbeat,” he said. “If there are any political aspirations, you don’t want to tick off where the strength of voting is in Montana.”___Follow Matthew Brown on Twitter at www.twitter.com/matthewbrownap .
Ranchi: Former India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been rested for the remaining two One-day Internationals (ODIs) of the five-match rubber against Australia. Speaking to reporters after the third ODI here, India’s assistant coach Sanjay Bangar said late on Friday: “We will have some changes in the last two games. Dhoni will not be playing in the last two games. He will be taking rest.” In the absence of the experienced stumper, Rishabh Pant, who is a part of the current Indian squad, has become an automatic choice for the two ODIs as no replacement was named for Dhoni. Meanwhile, pacer Mohammed Shami is also likely to miss the next two matches due to a leg injury. “We have to see whether he (Shami) will be fit for the game. If he’s not fit then Bhuvneshwar Kumar will play. Those decisions the captain and coach take before the game. As of now no replacements,” Bangar said. India, who suffered a 32-run defeat against Australia here, lead the series 2-1 and both the sides will next clash on March 10 and March 13 in Mohali and Delhi respectively.
Basel (Switzerland): Jose Mourinho is gunning for a return to top level management and a third Champions League title, the former Real Madrid and Manchester United manager revealed on Friday in an interview with AFP. Mourinho has been out of work since being sacked by United in December and said he would like to be appointed as a boss at a club where he can add to his European triumphs with Porto in 2003 and Inter Milan seven years later, and draw level with Zinedine Zidane, Carlo Ancelotti and Bob Paisley.

Sometimes, you are not in the race, but you have to win other races.” Mourinho, who has coached in his native Portugal as well as in England, Italy and Spain left the door open to returning to those leagues or taking over at a club elsewhere. Also Read – Vijender’s next fight on Nov 22, opponent to be announced later “I can go back to a country I’ve been before and to be honest, I have enjoyed working in every country I did,” he said. “(Or) I can try something very important, which is to work in a fifth country and try to win everything in the fifth country like I did in the previous ones.” Mourinho’s time with United was his third with a Premier League club after two spells with Chelsea, where he won the title three times, and he isn’t surprised that England has four teams in the quarter-finals of Europe’s top competition. United, Manchester City, Tottenham and Liverpool have all made it to the last eight. “English teams are powerful, they have a very competitive league. Sometimes, it goes against them because many times, you have very difficult situations in the calendar,” he said. “The teams are good and strong, and you look at Man City, the level of investment. Top players, experienced players, top manager, experienced manager.” Asked about France attacker Kylian Mbappe, Mourinho praised the World Cup-winning teenager, who he says has the ability take over from Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo when they eventually hang up their boots. “He is there, he is ready for next step. When the big monsters decide to stop, he will be there, just waiting,” Mourinho said. “Sometimes, you can be part of the team that reaches something, and you are just lucky to be at the right moment at the right time. That’s not the case. He was very important for France being champion.”
New Delhi: The Delhi High Court has permanently restrained 30 torrent sites from hosting, streaming, reproducing, distributing or making available to the public by any means the movies, music, shows or any content which violates the copyright of film production companies like Twentieth Century Fox and UTV Software.Justice Manmohan, in the order, directed internet service providers (ISPs), like Airtel, Reliance Jio and MTNL, to block access to these websites. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’Directions were also issued by the court to the Department of Telecommunication (DoT) and the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MEITY) to ensure that the ISPs registered with them block access to such “rogue websites”. While issuing the directions based on a plea by the film production companies, the court said website blocking was a “cumbersome exercise” and majority of the viewers who access and download the infringing content are youngsters who are unaware that the content is pirated. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&KIt directed the DoT and the MEITY to “explore the possibility of framing a policy under which a warning is issued to the viewers of the infringing content, if technologically feasible in the form of e-mails, or pop-ups or such other modes, cautioning the viewers to cease viewing/downloading the infringing material. “In the event the warning is not heeded to and the viewers/subscribers continue to view, access or download the infringing/pirated content, then a fine could be levied on the viewers/subscribers,” the court said. It added that such a measure would go a long way in curbing piracy and the dark-net as well as in “promoting the legal content and accelerating the pace of Digital India”. The court, in its 99-page verdict, also noted that such websites were “hydra-headed”, who on being blocked, “actually multiply and resurface as alphanumeric or mirror websites”. Therefore, to meet the ends of justice and address the menace of piracy by such hydra-headed websites, the court permitted the plaintiff production companies to implead as a party in the matter the mirror/redirect/alphanumeric websites. However, the plaintiffs would have to file affidavits confirming that the newly impleaded sites are a mirror/redirect/alphanumeric website along with “sufficient supporting evidence”.

Interestingly, both Rahul and Sonia Gandhi have disclosed in their election affidavits filed for the Lok Sabha 2019 elections that the Income Tax Department has initiated reassessment proceedings against them for the assessment year 2011-12 and has passed reassessment order, dated December 31, 2018, raising demand. The two leaders, however, added in their affidavits that the said proceedings are under challenge before the Supreme Court.

In his affidavit, Modi had declared total income of Rs 19.92 lakh for the financial year 2017-18, up from Rs 9.69 lakh in 2013-14. There are no “income tax dues” pending against him, as per Modi’s election affidavit filed for Varanasi Lok Sabha constituency. Listing his assets in the affidavit, Modi under the sub-head ‘value of claims/interest’ mentioned Rs 85,145 as tax deducted at source (TDS) for financial year 2018-19.
