Other Sports Rajyavardhan Rathore asks corporate companies to come forward and invest in development of sports

first_imgNew Delhi: Union Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore on Friday encouraged the investors to invest money for the development of sports in India.The sports minister declared that the government is planning a project that will nurture the skills of 8-10 years of age in the country and provide them scholarships and financial support.“At any given time there are 10 crore students in schools. We will partner with school boards, state governments and even the armed forces. They will identify and map the physical fitness of 8-10-year-olds based on a simple test,” Rathore said at the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) Global Sports Summit Scorecard’.Following the initial tests, the number of students will be filtered to 5000 children and then to 1000 students, on which super advance test will be carried on.“The right physical talent for the right sport will be identified and Rs 5 lakh scholarship will be given to them for eight years so that by the time the child is 16 years he is ready to be a champion. This is the time to invest in sports,” he said.The minister also insisted that no athlete needs to feel shy to ask for funds as “there is no dearth of money.”“From 1990 till date, all Olympic medallist and potential medallist have been funded by the National Sports Development Fund (NSDF). It’s a fund that was largely supported by the PSUs, now we are opening it to the entire country,” Rathore said.Rathore said that government is also chalking out a plan of a manufacturers’ summit later in 2018, where multinational companies with their Indian counterparts will collaborate to tell the government of the policies and modifications needed to start manufacturing sports equipment in India.“By 2019, the sports industry will reach USD 75 billion, it is not only good for individuals but also for the corporates. This is the time to be a part of the Indian sports story,” he concluded. For all the Latest Sports News News, Other Sports News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

DCB elections set for August 11

first_imgTHE elections of Members of the Executive Committee of the embattled Demerara Cricket Board (DCB) is scheduled for August 11 at 11:00hrs at the Demerara Cricket Club (DCB).This new development came after Justice Navindra Singh ordered in June that the DCB must hold elections no later than August 11, 2019, after an application to the Court for the holding of the DCB elections was made by Roger Harper in his capacity as President of the Georgetown Cricket Association (GCA), Davteerth Anandjit in his capacity as Secretary of the East Coast Cricket Board (ECCB), and Bradley Fredericks as President of the Upper Demerara Cricket Association (UDCA).Raj SinghThe respondents were the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) executives, Anand Kalladeen, Anand Sanasie, Raj Singh, Alfred Mentore, Ravindranauth Persaud, Suresh Persaud, Lalta Digamber, Colin Europe, Rohan Sarjoo and Ray Persaud.According to a Notice of Meeting seen by Chronicle Sport and published on one of the daily newspapers on Sunday, August 4, 2019, the agenda is as follows:-– Call to Order by a Marshal of the High Court of the Supreme Court of Judicature.– Nomination and election of a Returning Officer for the conduct of the election of the members of Executive Committee of the Demerara Cricket Board.– Election of the Members of the Executive Committee of the Demerara Cricket Board.Justice Singh’s ruling now paves the way for a legitimate board for the first time since 2009. His ruling ended a decade of several Court matters, which have affected the smooth operations at the board level.In January 2011, an act unprecedented in the history of sports took place with the staging of two elections by the DCB. The separate elections were held; one by businessman Bissondyal Singh at the Lusignan Community Centre and the other by Raj Singh at the Wales Community Centre.Following those elections, the factions failed to recognize the eligibility of each other’s and this was followed by a number of Court orders, leaving the administration of the board in jeopardy.Meanwhile, under the Guyana Cricket Administration Act 2014, the GCA, ECCB, the West Demerara Cricket Association, the UDCA, and the East Bank Demerara Cricket Association are the Constituent members of the DCB.last_img read more

Woman Placed on Life Support after Giving Birth

first_imgSandra Seju went into a coma due to after-birth complications, requiring brain surgery.Needs funds urgently to stay aliveHaving a baby is supposed to bring a lot of joy and happiness that can never be equaled to anything in the world. However, this experience comes with responsibilities and challenges that can be overwhelming and in some instances life threatening.In early November, Sandra Seju gave birth to a bouncing baby girl named Hope. Minutes after delivery, the first-time mother who couldn’t wait to see her bundle of joy, slipped into a coma due to after-birth complications, requiring brain surgery.Sandra, the sister of Martina Harris, the 2004 Miss Africa New Jersey beauty pageant winner, was immediately placed on life support.Martina has created a GoFundMe account in hopes of raising the needed money to see her sister through her medical crisis.Martina says her sister’s condition is a blow to the family. Sandra’s condition became grave when “she experienced complications which caused flooding in her brain and other areas and is presently at Beth Israel Hospital, United States of America,” Martina added.Pictures surfaced of Sandra covered in tubes in a tape early this month, which has devastated those who have followed her Facebook page and posts with her new baby bump.Seeing her fighting for her life has encouraged many to donate to her GoFundMe account, which has raised $3,375, enabling Sandra to have brain surgery.But Martina says there are more medical procedures and medicines needed to get Sandra back to normal and will need to raise a total of $7,000. Those wanting to help the family are asked to donate to: gofundme.com/santas-medical-bills.“We know many of our followers and well wishers would like to visit her, but unfortunately, she cannot have visitors. She has had the surgery but still needs to pay for  medical expenses,” she added.Postpartum Eclampsia refers to the sudden onset of grand seizures or coma after giving birth. The condition can potentially cause serious damage to the central nervous system (CNS), heart and other major organs in the mother’s body if it is not recognized and treated promptly.Symptoms tend to arise within 48 hours after delivery, but it is possible to experience postpartum eclampsia several days or even weeks after.Pre-eclampsia during pregnancy is characterized by high blood pressure, fluid retention and protein loss in the urine. Related stress on the heart and CNS makes it more likely that a seizure will develop.Advancement in prenatal care and medicine has significantly reduced the frequency of eclampsia episodes and related complications worldwide over the last few decade.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
