beginning on 6 July as he came up with a disappointing 5779m effort in the trials held on Sunday Gowda who holds the national record of 6628m underwent a trial ahead of the championships as the Athletics Federation of India wanted to check his fitness level It was learnt that some of the national coaches were not happy with Gowda’s below-par performance though the matter has been referred to the selection committee File image of Vikas Gowda PTI An AFI official said that Gowda who will turn 34 on 5 July has asked for another try on 4 July saying that he would be able to do 60m by then But the AFI is unlikely to give him another chance as it will amount to giving him a special treatment "Some of the coaches are not happy with Gowda’s performance His 5779m will at seventh or eighth if you see at the final results of the last edition in Wuhan in 2015 So it will be difficult for Gowda to be given an entry to the championships" an AFI official told PTI Gowda came here without much competitive exposure this season He logged a 6235m effort at Chula Vista High Performance Meet at his home base in the United States towards the end of May but AFI was keen to assess his fitness and so put him through the grinds today AFI President Adille Sumariwalla said the Federation wanted to be completely sure of the athletes’ fitness before confirming their participation in the Asian Athletics Championships "The results of all the trials are sent to Chairman of Selection Committee G S Randhawa for his perusal" he said The AFI was also not happy with Gowda’s flop show at the Rio Olympics where he failed to qualify for the final round Just a few months before the Olympics the federation was told about a shoulder injury which was said to be a minor one but the AFI felt that he had not given the exact picture of his injury Another athlete national record holder 110m hurdler Siddhanth Thingalaya based in the US also went through trials on Sunday He was also mandated to the trial as he had not competed in any event on the domestic circuit this season The 26-year-old Thingalaya clocked 1348 seconds in the Altis Invitational at Phoenix in Arizona recently but the result is yet to be ratified If his time of 1348 seconds is ratified by the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) he will have qualified for the World Championships to be held in London By:

4:26 pm Venus and Serena Williams stormed into the semi-finals without a set dropped Top News An Australian Open electrified by the revivals of seasoned champions will bathe in the warm glow of nostalgia on Saturday when the Williams sisters contest the women’s final at Rod Laver Arena Melbourne Park was where Venus and Serena Williams first clashed in a tour match in 1998 and nearly 20 years on the Americans will add another chapter to tennis’s greatest sibling rivalry In 1998 they were teenagers with cornrows and coloured beads in their hair sharing in an awkward second round encounter that 17-year-old Venus won in two sets Venus hugged her sister younger by a year at the net and apologised for having to “take (her) out” On Saturday 35-year-old Serena will bid for a record 23rd grand slam title in the professional era while Venus will strive for her eighth and first in almost nine years Serena drew level with Germany’s Steffi Graff on 22 when she claimed her seventh Wimbledon title last year but her crowning moment was delayed when as top seed she was upset in the US Open semi-finals by Czech Karolina Pliskova Serena no longer cares to talk about the record and stiffened when asked about it after her semi-final victory over Mirjana Lucic-Baroni as if the weight of such an achievement might prove too heavy But a seventh title at Melbourne Park would add further credit to Serena’s claim as the greatest of all time despite being one short of Australia’s Margaret Court whose 24 major titles were split between the amateur and professional eras For 13th seed Venus her first grand slam final in eight years is already a stunning victory of perseverance in the face of her struggles to manage Sjogren’s syndrome an auto-immune disease that causes fatigue and joint pain Both players stormed into the semi-finals without a set dropped However where Serena romped into the final with a 50-minute demolition of Lucic-Baroni Venus needed to summon her peerless experience to fend off feisty fellow American Coco Vandeweghe in three sets Saturday’s final will be the Williams sisters ninth at a grand slam and their first since Wimbledon in 2009 where Serena won in two sets RIVALRY SHAPED GAME As tempting as it may be to see the Melbourne Park decider as a last flickering of a rivalry that shaped the women’s game for a decade may be premature Eras have come and gone but Serena has never left the stage winning nine grand slam titles since turning 30 Venus spent four years in the wilderness from 2011-14 a period in which she was unable to surpass a fourth round at any of the majors But since a drought-breaking quarter-final at the 2015 Australian Open Venus has risen again It took her sister to end her run at Wimbledon in the fourth round that year and again at the US Open in the quarter-finals a few months later Her semi-final run at Wimbledon last year was further evidence that Venus still has the hunger and the game to trouble the best “I think people realise this is an amazing job so it’s best to keep it” she said of her longevity Whether she can still beat the best will be decided on Saturday where she will bid for her first Australian Open title 14 years after her only other final at Melbourne Park ended in a three-set loss to her sister Serena who holds a 16-11 winning record over Venus over their careers and leads 6-2 in the grand slam finals is favourite to win but knows better than to underestimate her sister’s competitive spirit “She’s my toughest opponent — nobody has ever beaten me as much as Venus has” she said “This is a story This is something that I couldn’t write a better ending This is a great opportunity for us to start our new beginning” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App

HilalWritten by Anuj Bhatia | New Delhi | Updated: September 28 2017 8:52 am Sony may be looking to launch smartphones with an all-new design language Related News In a move that could cement its position in the premium phone market Sony’s new-generation smartphone will have an all-new design language the company’s India managing director Kenichiro Hibi told indianexpresscom Hibi shed light on the upcoming flagship smartphone on the sidelines of the launch of the Xperia XZ1 on Monday which is priced at Rs 44990 in India Sony has been stuck with the same industrial design for its Xperia smartphones for a while now The company this year launched two high-profile smartphones – Xperia XZ Premium and Xperia XZ1 And both the phones feature thick bezels above and below Its key competitors in the premium segment be it Samsung LG and now Apple have moved onto bezel-less designs Asked whether Sony will adopt a new design language for its future smartphones Hibi said “We have deployed an omnibalance design as long as the X series continues to be available in the market Also we are planning to launch new generation of products and you can expect a complete new design from the devices” Hibi acknowledged the current market scenario where more smartphone manufacturers are adopting the unusual 18:9 aspect ratio and a bezel-less design language In order to keep pace with the competition Sony may be looking to adopt a nearby bezel-less design for its next-generation flagship which according to Hibi will arrive “soon” Though the company isn’t ready to share more information about the upcoming smartphone series yet Sony has been facing an uphill task in the premium smartphone market in India where Samsung and Apple continue to hold the top two positions The company has said that India will remain its focal point but the focus will be on the high-end premium segment For Sony the Xperia XZ1 is not a flagship smartphone instead the company likes to call it as the “mass-market flagship” “India is a huge market but the vast majority is the entry-level segment which is not coming in” Hibi said However the company has no plans to exit the mid-end segment which is also crucial for any smartphone manufacturer to survive in a market like India Sony will focus on the premium mid-end segment which starts above Rs 20000 The Japanese company has recently launched the Xperia XA1 Plus in India at a price of Rs 24990 For Sony the Xperia XZ1 is not a flagship smartphone instead the company likes to call it as the “mass-market flagship” Which is why it is priced less than the competition The company said the Xperia XZ Premium will remain its flagship of 2017 which has a 4K HDR display and is priced at Rs 60000 in the Indian market For all the latest Technology News

history with over 500 million accounts compromised (Source: Reuters) Related News Yahoo has been struggling for years to keep people coming back to its digital services such as email That challenge just got more daunting after hackers stole sensitive information from at least 500 million accounts The startling breach disclosed Thursday is believed to be the largest to hit a single email provider The security breakdown risks magnifying Yahoo’s preexisting problems — specifically that it is losing users traffic and the advertising revenue that follows both to rivals such as Google and Facebook Some snarky online commentators quipped that the hack would have been far more devastating if people actually still used the company’s services While there’s some truth to that observation millions around the world still rely on Yahoo mail and other services and are now potentially at risk of identity theft or worse LOSING USERS And if these people give up on Yahoo as a result the consequences for the company itself — now scheduled to become part of Verizon as soon as its $48 billion deal closes — could also be dire “Yahoo may very well be facing an existential crisis” said Corey Williams senior director of products and marketing at the computer security firm Centrify Yahoo was already facing a steep decline in email traffic despite CEO Marissa Mayer’s efforts to upgrade the service in order to foster more user loyalty In July 161 million people worldwide used Yahoo email on personal computers a 30 percent decline from the same time in 2014 when the breach first occurred That’s according to the latest data from the research firm comScore By contrast Google’s rival Gmail service saw desktop users rise 9 percent to nearly 429 million over the same period The email breach raises questions about Yahoo’s ability to maintain secure and effective services particularly since it’s been laying off staff and trimming expenses to counter a steep drop in revenue over the past eight years At the time of the break-in Yahoo’s security team was led by Alex Stamos a respected industry executive who left last year to take a similar job at Facebook Yahoo’s current CEO Marissa Mayer in this file photo (Source: AP) ONCE MORE UNTO THE BREACH Yahoo didn’t explain what took so long to uncover a heist that it blamed on a “state-sponsored actor” — parlance for a hacker working on behalf of a foreign government The Sunnyvale California company declined to explain how it reached its conclusions about the attack for security reasons but said it is working with the FBI and other law enforcement Yahoo began investigating a possible breach in July around the time the tech site Motherboard reported that a hacker who uses the name “Peace” was trying to sell account information belonging to 200 million Yahoo users Yahoo didn’t find evidence of that reported hack but additional digging later uncovered a far larger allegedly state-sponsored attack “We take these types of breaches very seriously and will determine how this occurred and who is responsible” the FBI said in a Thursday statement MOST ACCOUNTS EVER STOLEN The Yahoo theft represents the most accounts ever stolen from a single email provider according to computer security analyst Avivah Litan with the technology research firm Gartner Inc “It’s a shocking number” Litan said “This is a pretty big deal that is probably going to cost them tens of millions of dollars Regulators and lawyers are going to have a field day with this one” Yahoo says it has more than 1 billion monthly users although it hasn’t disclosed how many of those people have email accounts The data stolen from Yahoo includes users’ names email addresses telephone numbers birth dates scrambled passwords and the security questions — and answers — used to verify an accountholder’s identity The company said the attacker didn’t get any information about its users’ bank accounts or credit and debit cards Security experts say the Yahoo theft could hurt the affected users if their personal information is mined to break into other online services or used for identity theft All affected users will be notified about the theft and advised how to protect themselves according to the company Yahoo also is recommending that all users change their passwords if they haven’t done so since 2014 If the same password is used to access other sites it should be changed too as should any security questions similar to those used on Yahoo THE VERIZON IMPACT News of the security lapse could cause some people to have second thoughts about relying on Yahoo’s services raising a prickly issue for the company as it tries to sell its digital operations to Verizon That deal announced two months ago isn’t supposed to close until early next year That leaves Verizon with wiggle room to renegotiate the purchase price or even back out if it believes the security breach will harm Yahoo’s business That could happen if users shun Yahoo or file lawsuits because they’re incensed by the theft of their personal information Verizon said it still doesn’t know enough about the Yahoo break-in to assess the potential consequences “We will evaluate as the investigation continues through the lens of overall Verizon interests including consumers customers shareholders and related communities” the company said in a statement DELAY OF SALE At the very least Verizon is going to need more time to assess what it will be getting into if it proceeds with its plans to take over Yahoo said Scott Vernick an attorney specializing in data security for the law firm Fox Rothschild “This is going to slow things down There is going to be a lot of blood sweat and tears shed on this” Vernick said “A buyer needs to understand the cybersecurity strengths and weaknesses of its target these days” For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App More Related News
