The camps will then shift to Pune from November 12 to 15 and November 17 to 20. The camps and trials will be conducted in two age groups – 7 to 17 and 13 to 18.Once close pals, Tendulkar and Kambli had fallen apart following major differences in almost everything they did as individuals, players and entrepreneurs – together or separately.They were not even in talking terms and Kambli had put on record that his closest friends since school days, Tendulkar did not even invite him for the latter’s retirement party.As the saying goes ‘all is well that ends well’, the celebrated duo is together again. “Vinod and I have played together from the time we were in school. When we met recently, I told him about my project and Vinod readily agreed to contribute. I am delighted to have him on board,” Tendulkar has told Mirror from Bhutan.“Having Vinod on the cricket field with me will definitely bring back some very special memories,” Tendulkar said.It is a “dream come true moment” Kambli. “I immediately said yes when Sachin discussed the idea of coaching together. It’s a great opportunity to go back to the maidans with him and re-live our days there. I hope to teach the kids what Achrekar sir taught us when we were their age. I thank Sachin for showing faith in me,” Kambli had told Mirror.The coaching staff at the Tendulkar Middlesex Global Academy will have several present and former first class cricketers from Mumbai in addition to Englishmen David Malan, Toby Roland Jones, Nick Compton and John Simpson.Also Read: Sachin, promoters exit ISL club Kerala Blasters as Lulu Group takes control Previous articleSaina, Sindhu, Srikanth seek success in French OpenNext articleSony Pictures extends media rights deal with Formula E championship Kunal DhyaniSports Tech enthusiast, he reports on Sports Tech industry and writes on sports products.

G A Chester | Monday, 7th December, 2020 | More on: CINE EMAN Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. I’ve been bearish on Cineworld (LSE: CINE) from as far back as when its share price was above 200p. And yes, I confess, also at prices significantly lower than its current 65p!Today, I’ll explain why I remain bearish on the stock. But hey, it’s not all negativity. I’m also going to compare and contrast Cineworld with a growth stock I’d be very happy to buy.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The pre-pandemic Cineworld share priceCineworld’s shares had been weak well before the pandemic hit. Between spring 2019 and the end of the year they declined 32%.Maybe the market shared my concerns about the company’s accounting and governance, or my scepticism about its debt-fuelled empire building. Particularly its entry into the North American market, where movie-theatre attendance has been in decline for two decades. Its mega-purchase of US number-two chain Regal smacked of a vanity acquisition to me.By contrast, I’ve found nothing particularly perplexing about Cineworld’s small-cap peer Everyman Media (LSE: EMAN). Its largely organic growth strategy has been well-paced and prudently managed. As such, its financial position coming into 2020 was far stronger than Cineworld’s.Everyman’s balance sheet had tangible shareholders’ equity of £44.9m. And its net debt (excluding lease liabilities) of £9.9m was a modest 0.8 times its £12m EBITDA. Cineworld’s tangible shareholders’ equity was negative to the tune of $3.1bn. And its net debt (excluding lease liabilities) of $3.5bn was a scary 3.5 times its $1bn EBITDA.Mayhem at the moviesWhen the pandemic hit, Everyman moved early to further strengthen its balance sheet. It raised £17.5m of new equity in an oversubscribed placing. Cineworld’s solution, with its dangerously debt-heavy balance sheet? Borrow more money.Everyman has served cinema-goers well through the year, opening its venues whenever legally possible. Meanwhile, Cineworld closed its cinemas across the UK and US in early October until further notice.Last month, the Financial Times claimed Cineworld is looking at “cutting rents and permanently closing UK screens,” via an insolvency process under a CVA (Company Voluntary Arrangement).Even if it goes down this route, I’m not convinced it’ll be enough to boost results or the Cineworld share price. Given the enormity of its debt, I think a wholesale financial restructuring of the group will be required sooner or later, with painful consequences for existing shareholders.Cineworld share price versus Everyman share priceCineworld’s shares are currently trading at a 72% discount to their 52-week high. This compares with Everyman’s discount of 51%. However, for the reasons I’ve discussed, I’m not tempted by the ‘cheap’ Cineworld share price. It remains firmly on my list of stocks to avoid.Meanwhile, I think Everyman’s 51% discount share price is very attractive. The company’s relative financial robustness, its premium independent positioning, and strong pre-pandemic growth all appeal to me.I think Everyman would have little difficulty in doing another equity fundraising, if necessary. Indeed, there may be opportunities for it to acquire some attractive venues from, ahem, financially distressed operators. Personally, I’d be happy to buy Everyman shares at their current price, but the Cineworld share price isn’t for me. Forget the Cineworld share price!

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! The Royal Mail (LSE: RMG) share price has jumped a staggering 158% over the past 12 months. This performance has erased much of the stock’s decline since its all-time high in May 2018. Back then, shares in the delivery group were changing hands at 631p. They fell to a low of 124p at the beginning of April 2020, before recovering rapidly to 450p today. As the company’s share price action over the past few years shows, the stock market can be a volatile and unpredictable place to invest. So, investing in the market certainly isn’t suitable for all. However, I’m comfortable with the level of uncertainty and volatility that comes with investing, and I’m interested in the Royal Mail share price after its recent performance. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…A change in fortunesThe first thing I do when I start taking a closer look at a business is try to understand how the organisation got to the position it’s in today. When it comes to Royal Mail, the company struggled for the past few years with declining letter volumes and rising costs. But the pandemic changed the group’s outlook entirely.With consumers confined to their homes, online retail has boomed, and Royal Mail has risen to the challenge. It’s hired thousands of new workers, introduced new specialist parcel post boxes, a new parcel pickup service, and changed the way consumers pay for parcels, so there’s no longer any need to visit a Post Office. These changes, coupled with the tailwind from the pandemic, have helped the firm reach new heights. Last week, the company said it expected full-year 2021 adjusted profit to be “well in excess” of £500m after a substantial rise in parcel revenues over the Christmas period. Group revenue for the nine months to December rose 20% to £9.3bn.This is a terrific transformation for the group, which reported a net income of just £161m for its 2020 financial year. Royal Mail share price returnLooking at the above figures, it’s clear why the Royal Mail share price has performed so well over the past 12 months. If the company can keep this up, I think the stock could be an attractive acquisition at current levels. However, there’s no guarantee this boom will last. Parcel volumes have benefited from lockdowns. So, when the economy begins to open up again, it seems likely volumes will decline as consumers return to stores.At the same time, the company has a history of poor relations with workers. It has also struggled to keep costs under control. All of these factors imply Royal Mail’s good fortune may not last. Other companies have also been growing their parcel businesses over the past 12 months. This suggests the group may face increased competition. Still, while the business does face challenges, I think the Royal Mail share price looks attractive. That’s why I’d buy the stock today. If the group can build on its success over the past year, I think it could see continued earnings growth.

The AAC provide a vital link between our teams and charities, as well as offering advice on how the BBC can appropriately support the sector. Fiona Ellis has done a fantastic job as chair of the Committee for many years. She has given up her time voluntarily to help the BBC and I’d like to thank her for all her support and advice. We look forward to working closely with Sir John Low as he takes over this important role and brings his wealth of experience to the committee.”Sir John Low said:“I am delighted to be given the opportunity to support and guide the excellent work of BBC appeals – it has become such an important aspect of the Corporation’s contribution and engagement with charities and their beneficiaries, often people at their most distressed and vulnerable. It will be a privilege to play my part.”Established in 1927, the Appeals Advisory Committee reports to the BBC’s Executive Committee and provides independent oversight of the BBC’s involvement with charities and appeals. The AAC advises the BBC on matters of policy and management of risks associated with charity appeals. It also recommends to the BBC which charities should benefit from the regular appeals on Radio 4 and BBC One. The 12 member committee is made up of independent experts with wide experience in the charitable sector who voluntarily give up their time to advise the BBC. 115 total views, 1 views today CAF’s John Low appointed Chair of BBC Appeals Advisory Committee
This article is part of Abolition for the People, a series brought to you by a partnership between Kaepernick Publishing and LEVEL, a medium publication for and about the lives of Black and Brown men.In 1981, Black Panther Party member Mumia Abu-Jamal was sentenced to death by a “hanging judge” for the killing of a white police officer in Philadelphia. In 2000, Amnesty International found that the case “was irredeemably tainted by politics and race and failed to meet international fair trial standards.” Mumia forms part of the generation of Black radicals on whom the state tested law-and-order propaganda and lockdown in the ’60s — a prelude to the carceral repression it would deploy against poor Black and Brown urban communities in the 1980s and 1990s. On death row, Mumia became a writer of great literary power, and we are pleased to present this piece as part of Abolition for the People.— The Editors, Kaepernick PublishingFrom WW: To read Mumia’s essay in its entirety, go to tinyurl.com/y3vvz4rmWhen one thinks of the term abolition, there is a tendency to see it as a threat emerging from the left. Another perspective understands, however, that abolition is a natural response to a situation that has become untenable.What condition lay before the nation in its founding days? Slavery: human bondage, which sat like an incubus upon the new nation’s foundation and transformed its stated aims and ideals into lies. After some reflection, perhaps, we will see that the notion of abolition has deep historical roots. Consider summer, 1776, when delegates from the Continental Congress gathered in a sweltering room in Philadelphia. These men, some of the country’s intellectual elite, were scientists, writers, doctors and thinkers, yet their claims of the new nation’s ideals were thick with contradiction. They wrote and adopted a document that said, among other things, the following:We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it.These words emerge from the Declaration of Independence, adopted July 4, 1776, and celebrated throughout the U.S. annually on Independence Day today.When people came together in the 19th century to oppose the expanding slave system, they were called abolitionists. Among both the rulers and the press, such people were regarded as oddballs at best, and nuts at worst. Despite present popular opinion, slavery was the air that people breathed. The nation was so deeply and openly negrophobic and racist, that the idea of a multiracial group opposed to slavery was considered aberrant.Furthermore, the document, signed by such luminaries as Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Dr. Benjamin Rush and John Adams, included platitudes like “all men are created equal,” while dark men, propertyless white men, and all women were neither able to vote nor be voted for posts of political power. Indigenous people were seen as part of a distant wilderness and not part of the nation that was being contemplated.In October 1859, white abolitionist leader John Brown, joined by 21 men, raided the U.S. Armory at Harpers Ferry, Virginia, in an attempt to arm African captives in neighboring plantations so they could strike out for freedom. Such an attempt had to face fierce logistical challenges, given the communications needed to gain the ear and trust of a largely illiterate and deeply repressed enslaved community, constantly subjected to white armed militia surveillance.Abolitionists brought forth another vision, and hence, another future. Harpers Ferry, Virginia, was a step in the fateful march to war that, after earth-shaking sacrifice, led to the abolition of slavery.Abraham Lincoln, one of the most admired presidents in history, would describe the raid and the raiders as little better than lunatics and regicides, less than a year after the attack failed. In February 1860, Lincoln spoke before a crowd at New York’s Cooper Institute (now known as Cooper Union) to distance himself and his party (Republicans) from the Harpers Ferry raid. Lincoln told his audience that Brown wasn’t a Republican and that Republicans had nothing to do with the raid. Indeed, Lincoln assured his northern audience that neither he nor his party supported abolition. And, truth be told, this is far from a remarkable perspective, for the fact of chattel slavery was one deeply normalized in American experience and history.Indeed, abolition was the exception, not the rule.What this means, of course, is that abolitionists were truly remarkable people who saw beyond the present into a time not yet born. Spurred often by religious convictions, abolitionists supported attacks against the slave system, which they saw as an unnecessary evil.In 1858, a year before the Harpers Ferry raid, Lincoln opined that slavery would last for at least 100 more years — or at least until 1958 or the 1960s. It is important to note that Lincoln’s prognostication was meant to appease the slavocracy. It was not an assessment of the counterrevolutionary dynamic that would detonate after the war.Abolitionists brought forth another vision, and hence, another future. Harpers Ferry, Virginia, was a step in the fateful march to war that, after earthshaking sacrifice, led to the abolition of slavery. Thus, abolition was not a skip in the park. It is a deep, committed movement of social transformation that seeks to bring down institutions that needlessly inflict pain upon the People.Abolitionists like Frederick Douglass, Harriet Tubman and John Brown forged a new America, one unimaginable to earlier generations. They saw farther than their contemporaries, and even warned them of problems threatening from the periphery.After coming close to execution twice in the 1990s, Mumia’s life was saved when a mass international movement mobilized in the streets on his behalf. In 2011, after 28 years on death row, a federal court ruled that Mumia’s death sentence had been obtained unconstitutionally; his sentence was commuted to life in prison without parole. Make no mistake: This is not enough. Freeing political prisoners is the moral assignment of every emerging generation of revolutionaries and freedom fighters.
