Volcanoes, Red Force score sizeable victories

first_imgWINDWARD Islands Volcanoes recorded a comfortable six-wicket win over Kent Spitfires at Coolidge in their final match of the Regional Super50 on Friday.Kavem Hodge, who had spent most of the tournament batting at No. 6 for Windwards, struck his maiden List A fifty after being promoted to open the batting to chase Kent’s 205.Hodge got the Windwards chase going in the right direction after the early fall of Johnson Charles for 5 by adding 54 for the second wicket with Devon Smith (32) and another 86 for the third wicket with Sunil Ambris.Hodge ended with 68 and Ambris 48, just two shy of what would have been his seventh fifty in eight games during group play. Ambris ends the round-robin stage with 423 runs at 70.50, second overall behind Leeward Islands captain Kieran Powell’s aggregate of 509 at 84.83.When Hodge fell in the 40th, 31 runs were still required for victory. Captain Liam Sebastien and Kyle Mayers knocked off the rest of the runs, securing victory with 13 balls to spare. Kent had stumbled to 35 for 5 after choosing to bat at the toss before a 104-run sixth-wicket stand between Will Gidman and Adam Rouse salvaged their innings.Shane Shillingford eventually dismissed both men for 94 and 40 respectively and Kent’s tail fought until the 49th over before they were bowled out with seven balls left in the innings.Trinidad & Tobago Red Force rolled past West Indies Under-19 by 182 runs at North Sound on Friday night to set up a first-place showdown with Leeward Islands today.The win over West Indies U-19 moved T&T to 6-1 in Group B, the same record as Leewards though T&T trails Leewards by two points due to the bonus point structure in round-robin play.The winner of today’s match will top Group A and most likely face Jamaica while the loser will probably face Barbados, who hold a five-point advantage at the top of Group B heading into the final round of group matches.Kyle Hope, Jason Mohammed and Denesh Ramdin each struck half-centuries in T&T’s total of 290 for 5 after West Indies U-19 opted to bowl. Hope made 70 off 98 balls, adding 58 for the first wicket with Kjorn Ottley before teaming up with Mohammed to add 74 for the third wicket.Mohammed top scored with 84 off 73 balls and produced a 92-run fourth-wicket partnership with Ramdin before falling late in the innings.Ramdin took T&T through to the finish, ending on 60 not out off 42 balls to ensure the target would be well out of reach for West Indies U-19.Left-arm spinner Khary Pierre continued his fine tournament by doing most of the damage during a seven-over middle overs spell of 3 for 6 that accounted for top-scorer Emmanuel Stewart for 20 and captain Kirstan Kallicharan for 16.West Indies U-19 were eventually bowled out for 108 in 29.2 overs. Their final game is a rematch with Kent, the only side West Indies U-19 has beaten in the competition.(ESPN Cricinfo)last_img read more

U.S, UAE Most Preferred Destinations for Indian Millionaires Moving Abroad

first_imgIndia ranks second on the list of countries with large outflows of high net worth individuals (HNWI) in 2017, with 7,000 Indian HNWI migrating to other countries, according to a new report released this month. Most ultra-rich Indians moved to the United States, United Arab Emirates (UAE), Canada, Australia or New Zealand, the report said.The 2018 Global Wealth Migration Review, published by the AfrAsia Bank, showed that 10,000 Chinese HNWI migrated in 2017, while the corresponding figure from Turkey was 6,000, giving it the third spot. Chinese HNWIs moved to the United States, Canada and Australia, while Turkish HNWIs moved to Europe and the UAE.Australia is the top destination for migration for millionaires, with an inflow of 10,000 super-rich individuals in 2017, with most of them migrating from China and India, among other nations. Australia beat its main rival, the United States, for the third year running.The report pointed out that approximately 95,000 millionaires migrated in 2017, compared to 82,000 in 2016 and 64,000 in 2015. The United States was the second preferred destination for HNWI, with 9,000 of them migrating to the country in 2017. Canada and United Arab Emirates shared the third spot, with 5 000 millionaires coming to these countries.The popular places in Australia that these rich individuals preferred included Sydney, Melbourne, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Perth and Brisbane, the report pointed out. “Australia’s location makes it a better base for doing business in emerging Asian countries such as China, Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore and Vietnam. Australia was recently rated as the safest country for woman worldwide during our annual woman safety ratings. It is also a particularly safe country to raise children,” the report said, explaining the reasons for the preference of Australia over the United States.Many of the traditional arguments against immigration, including that immigrants place pressure on public healthcare and social services, and that they push down wages due to oversupply of cheap labor, do not apply to wealthy people. This is because HNWIs don’t take low-paying jobs and are very unlikely to claim benefits.The United States was the second most popular destination for migrating HNWIs in 2017, with most of them preferring to move to New York City, Los Angeles, Seattle and the San Francisco Bay area.According to the report, global wealth rose by 12 per cent in 2017 — from $192 trillion at the end of 2016 to $215 trillion at the end of 2017. India was the world’s best performing wealth market in 2016-2017, with 25 per cent growth in that period. China and Malta followed India with 22 per cent wealth growth during 2016-2017.India is expected to be among the fastest growing wealth markets owing to the large number of entrepreneurs and good educational system. There is a strong growth forecast in the local financial services, IT, business process outsourcing, real estate, healthcare and media sectors, the report added.

Run2Survive fun for living and undead

first_imgCan a zombie run three miles? Purists claim that their bodies are far too decayed for running, much less long-distance running. And yet, behind the fields of Endeavor Elementary School, a breed of enhanced zombies laced up their sneakers and ran in search of human flesh. Run2Survive was one of three events Saturday in support of the Evergreen School District Foundation. It was the first time Energy Events, which also sponsors the Vancouver USA Marathon, jumped onboard the zombie run fad, said race director Brian Davis. The foundation gets most of its money for scholarships and grants from a spring gala. Park Llafet, vice president of fundraising, said he wanted to add a fall fundraiser that was more geared toward the community.Survivors took off at dusk with a two-minute head start on the impending horde of the undead. The zombies ran wearing what they died in: hospital scrubs, tutus and pajamas. Some had the foresight to put on compression capris and running jerseys before their untimely demise.Although winner Dan McElrath finished in just 18 minutes, he did not survive. Being ahead of the pack turned out to be a disadvantage; he was ambushed by zombies hiding out along the course who jumped out of the bushes and snatched both of his red lifeline flags.last_img read more
