Fire chief abandoned Grenfell stay put advice ten minutes after hearing pleas

Joanne Smith was the on-call manager on the night of the Grenfell fire  A fire control room manager on the night of the Grenfell Tower blaze ordered “stay put” advice to be abandoned after just ten minutes of hearing frantic phone calls from residents, an inquiry heard.Joanne Smith said that soon after reporting for duty she became “increasingly uncomfortable” that residents were being told over the phone to stay in their homes. The  senior operations manager for the London Fire Brigade (LFB) said that her years of experience and the nature and length of the calls from residents were behind the “quick-time” decision to tell everyone to get out. But by the time she arrived at 2.15am the controversial advice, which some families have blamed for the death of their loved ones, had already “substantially failed”. Experts have said that the guidance failed by 1.26am when flames reached the top of the building and the stairwells filled with smoke. In a written statement to the public inquiry into the blaze, Ms Smith said: “I had arrived at Stratford at approximately 2.15am – within 10 to 15 minutes the decision was made to change policy and that decision was mine.” By the time Joanne Smith arrived for duty the ‘stay-put’ advice had already failed Credit:AFP On normal Fire Survival Guidance calls the firefighters have made contact with those trapped within ten minutes, she told the hearing, but some of the residents had been on the line for 45 minutes. Ms Smith was asked who, in practice, would normally be responsible for making the decision to alter advice to caller and said that, to her knowledge, the night of Grenfell was the first time such a decision had been made.It was a decision taken by her, in the control room, and agreed with those in charge on the ground, she said.She added: “The decision was made owing to a variety of factors – the duration of calls, the content of the calls and the resources available.”These factors and my years of experience formed the basis of my rationale and coincided with the recommendations following the Lakanal fire in 2009 in which certain questions were asked by the CROs (control room operators) regarding smoke and fire levels. “The information that was fed back by the CROs from residents and the conditions they were in led me to believe that they had no way of waiting to be rescued.”Once the decision was made, the new advice was passed to fire personnel on the ground and residents on emergency calls. Joanne Smith was the on-call manager on the night of the Grenfell fire  Residents were advised to ‘get out, hold hands and get wet towels to put around themselves’, and control room operators were told they may need to adopt more “forceful and blunt language” to emphasise the necessity of evacuation.Phone operator BT was also made aware of the change so it could advise residents what to do.Ms Smith said from 2.30am until 4am the influx of calls was “utterly relentless”, adding: “There were tears. Lots and lots of tears.”Looking around, I can only describe the staff as looking broken.” Ms Smith, who was on call manager on the night, was paged at 1.15am and as she was on phone to the Control Room, which was temporarily based in Stratford because of maintenance work in their usual office in Merton, she heard it was developing rapidly and told colleagues she was on her way.  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

By the time Joanne Smith arrived for duty the 'stay-put' advice had already failed  She said they were “incredibly worried” the building could collapse, and made a “collective decision” not to watch any coverage of the fire on television.She said: “This was a conscious decision to remain objective to the job in hand.”The last thing we wanted to do was to cause panic or distress to the staff members who were still talking to residents inside the flats whilst the building burned.”A total of 344 calls relating to the Grenfell Tower fire were received by control room operators, a log seen by the inquiry showed. The inquiry was adjourned until Thursday, when Ms Smith will continue  with her evidence. read more

Fears of supersize classes as secondary school population set to swell to

Secondary pupil numbers are expected to rise by 14.7 per cent in the next 10 years Supsersize classes could become the new norm, it is feared, as new figures show that the secondary school population is set to swell to 3.3 million within a decade.The hike is fuelled by a baby boom in the early 2000s, as well as a high birth rate among women from immigrant communities.The bulge in the population of children has been making its way through the school system, passing up from primary to secondaries.Secondary pupil numbers are expected to rise by 14.7 per cent in the next 10 years, meaning there will be another 418,000 children in secondary schools by 2027, according to Department for Education’s (DfE) latest projections.–– ADVERTISEMENT ––The official forecast will spark fresh concern about the increased class sizes, as well as the squeeze on school places. Professor Alan Smithers, director of the centre for education and employment research at Buckingham University said that the “explosion” in the secondary school population means that class sizes will “almost certainly” rise.“It couldn’t have been a surprise [to officials] as they have seen the numbers coming through primary schools,” he said.“So there really ought to be some plans in place. In essence we are inheriting the whirlwind of Labour’s lax immigration policy.” In essence we are inheriting the whirlwind of Labour’s lax immigration policyProfessor Alan Smithers The DfE’s forecast said the increase in school pupil population is “largely driven by an increase in the birth rate rather than direct immigration”.It went on: “However, that birth rate is in turn affected by any increase in the number of children born to non-UK born women (compared to those born to non UK-born women).  “The number of children born to non-UK born women increased by around 75 per cent between 2002 and 2013 (the years in which many children currently in schools were born), although this was a period of increased births generally.”Primary schools have seen an increase in pupil numbers in recent years, but this is now levelling off, the forecast said. There is projected to be around 4.5 million primary-age pupils by 2027, down around 112,000 compared to around 4.6 million this year.  Prof Smithers added that the squeeze on school places will be felt more acutely in inner city areas than rural communities.  “Population isn’t spread evenly throughout the country and people of different ethnic backgrounds tend to cluster with each other,” he said.  “Many of the most affected areas will be the inner cities where lots of the new arrivals to the country have settled, with large families that will greatly increase demands on schools in those neighbourhoods.” A report published by the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) earlier this year warned that there is a “growing sense of crisis” in teacher recruitment against a backdrop of soaring pupil numbers.Ministers have failed to “get a grip” on teacher retention, MPs said, adding that it is “particularly worrying” that the number of secondary school teachers has been falling since 2010.The report found that the DfE has a “disparate collection of small-scale interventions” to address the crisis in teacher retention, but these are “inadequate” and fail to address the underlying issues.A Department for Education spokesperson said: “This Government has driven the largest creation in school places in two generations and by 2020, there will be one million more new places across the education system than there were in 2010. Even with a significant rise in pupil numbers in primary schools in recent years, primary class sizes have remained pretty constant.” Secondary pupil numbers are expected to rise by 14.7 per cent in the next 10 years Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Passengers Will Be Going to Spaceand Geek Will Be There

first_img It’s strange to think that while Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence will be trapped in deep space in the film Passengers, most of its audience will be people on Earth. Luckily, people in space will be able to see it too.Sony Pictures said that it’ll be providing a copy of the film to NASA, which will send it up to the International Space Station for the astronauts to view.The marketing campaign for Passengers emphasizes the real-life science connections and studies backing them up. Sony is encouraging viewers to check out NASA’s exoplanet research and the search for a planet that can host human life, along with hosting astronauts and astrophysicists in events and on the red carpet. Pratt and Lawrence appear in a NASA PSA, which you can view below.Former NASA astronauts Garrett Reisman, Michael Massimino, and Nicole Stott will be attendance at the official premiere.In addition to the typical media events before a major motion picture’s release, Sony will also be hosting a science panel. Geek will be live streaming it on our Facebook page and on our website on Friday, Dec. 9 at from 12:15pm to 12:45 p.m PST.The panel will include cast members Chris Pratt, Jennifer Lawrence, and Michael Sheen, director Morten Tyldum, and writer Jon Spaihts. On the science side will be CEO of SpaceWorks, Dr. John Bradford and JPL NASA’s Dr. Tiffany Katari. Bradford and Katari will both talk about science elements exclusive to the film, including hibernation for deep space travel, and exoplanets.“The movie is about the very real possibility of traveling to a new home around another star,” said producer Neal Moritz. “It’s fascinating to discover the real science behind that–to see how astronomers are discovering exoplanets and finding ways that what we imagine could someday become a reality.”Geek will also be in attendance covering the event, which takes place in Beverly Hills at the Four Seasons Hotel.Passengers will hit Earth theaters on Dec. 21, 2016.

2013s Entrepreneurial Women to Watch

first_imgJane McGonigalPhoto© Matthew Stylianou/Corbis OutlineIt’s not every day that a knock in the head leads to an entirely new approach to treating disease, but that’s what sparked SuperBetter, Jane McGonigal’s free online game, which introduced a radical new approach to the prevention and treatment of depression, anxiety and other neurological conditions.In 2009 McGonigal banged her head against a cabinet in her San Francisco home, sustaining a concussion that took nearly a year to heal. This led her to use her Ph.D. in performance studies from the University of California, Berkeley, and her experience building collaborative online games for the World Bank and the American Heart Association to develop a game that would allow her to play her way to better mental health. The result was SuperBetter, which launched at the 2012 SXSW Interactive festival. It asks players to set up progressive, daily goals for themselves and enlist friendsor family to keep them on track. Maria Flynn, Biotechnology Executive Linda Rottenberg, Entrepreneurship Advocate By Jenna Schnuer December 18, 2012 Linda RottenbergPhoto© Anna WolfWhen Linda Rottenberg graduated from Yale Law School in 1993, she knew one thing: She didn’t want to practice law. So off to Argentina she went–to work for Ashoka, an organization that supports social entrepreneurs. Tech entrepreneurship was booming in the U.S. But in Argentina? Rottenberg learned that there wasn’t even a word for entrepreneur there. “Everybody I was meeting who had big talent aspired to a government job,” she says.There was no venture capital. No role models. No support. That sparked the idea for Endeavor, the New York-based organization Rottenberg launched in 1997 with Peter Kellner, an investor who had witnessed the same lack of advocacy for entrepreneurs during a Harvard Business School trip to China. Endeavor finds what Rottenberg calls “high-impact” entrepreneurs around the world and supports them through intense mentoring–each participant gets his or her own board of advisors–and access to a network of local investors. Rottenberg, who serves as CEO, defines high-impact entrepreneurs as those with “the greatest ability to create jobs, generate revenues and become role models for the next generation.” Sophia Amoruso, Tastemaker By Jennifer WangSophia AmorusoPhoto© Marc RoyceIf Sophia Amoruso has her way, the world is about to get a lot more nasty. Last year the 28-year-old founder and CEO of Nasty Gal, an online purveyor of new and vintage fashion for women, rocketed to prominence from seemingly nowhere after scoring a $40 million round of funding from Index Ventures–investors in Skype, Dropbox and Blue Bottle Coffee. For a retailer with scant discounting and zero debt, Nasty Gal has racked up some seriously drool-worthy numbers: international sales of $128 million in 2012, four times higher than the year before; 535,000 Facebook fans; 420,000 Instagram subscribers; 68,000 Twitter followers; and more than 2 million monthly unique visitors to the website in September 2012.In 2006 Amoruso was in her garage, watching bids roll in for the one-of-a-kind vintage clothing pieces she had put up on her eBay store. Seven years later she’s got a view from Nasty Gal’s 10,000-square-foot digs in downtown Los Angeles, boasting arched windows, high ceilings and droves of impossibly cool guys and gals. The bob-haired, bright-lipsticked Amoruso herself arrives in a rock ‘n’ roll black flared miniskirt, blue sneakers and a rainbow-fringed shag jacket.At the heart of the brand’s success is Amoruso’s drive to satisfy the “crazy, freakishly loyal” community that clamors for Nasty Gal’s ultra-affordable, young-skewing new merchandise, which is curated from an array of up-and-coming designers, as well as vintage items from luxury brands. “I will never stop making things and imagining cool and trippy things for those girls, and that will become a bigger part of what we do,” she says.Right now Amoruso is on the hunt for more office space in the neighborhood to house her ever-expanding staff–150 employees and counting, with 65 hires in 2012 alone–including executive talent poached from Stella & Dot, Shopzilla, Amazon, Jawbone and Gap. That’s in addition to a 500,000-square-foot warehouse that opened in the fall in Louisville, Ky.; the launch of a mobile site; and the simultaneous debut of the biennial Super Nasty print magazine and the brand’s first in-house collection, Weird Science, featuring color palettes inspired by computer cables and prints based on data-corruption visuals.All this, Amoruso asserts, is just the beginning. “We are transitioning from a retailer to a full-fledged brand,” she says. “Part of the reason I got to where I am is I never set a goal or look at the top. I like figuring out how to do things myself, and I like the idea of creating an online brand that will last a long time.” Tara Hunt, Social Marketing Authority By Michelle Juergen Olga Koper, Nanotechnologist By Jennifer Wang 15+ min read Yael Cohen, Philanthropist By Gwen Moran Sophia Amoruso, TastemakerLinda Rottenberg, Entrepreneurship AdvocateOlga Koper, NanotechnologistYael Cohen, PhilanthropistMaria Flynn, Biotechnology ExecutiveTara Hunt, Social Marketing AuthorityJane McGonigal, Game Developer Tara Hunt, Social Marketing Authority Tara HuntPhoto© Lane HartwellBefore Timeline and tweets, before a blog was called a blog, before anyone even knew what a web browser was, Tara Hunt was there. Often labeled a pioneer of online and social marketing, the 39-year-old Canadian has been an observer of the realm’s development and a force in influencing it.Hunt says her own evolution has been “a combination of being enamored and obsessed with the social web and being in the right place at the right time.” She was able to experiment in online marketing early on at startups in Toronto and San Francisco, when numbers of followers and likes weren’t crucial to anyone’s bottom line. There, Hunt found that organic engagement–developing relationships with a community in a natural, hands-on way, rather than pushing a message or brand image–was the most powerful driver of customer loyalty. (She even wrote a bestselling book on the subject: 2009’s The Whuffie Factor: Using the Power of Social Networks to Build Your Business.) Olga KoperPhoto© Tom McKenzieNanotechnology is all about small–manufacturing with atoms and manipulating materials no bigger than a billionth of a meter–but its potential is Brobdingnagian. Steve Jurvetson of powerhouse venture capital firm Draper Fisher Jurvetson has called nanotech “the next great technology wave, the next phase of Moore’s Law and the nexus of scientific innovation that revolutionizes most industries and indirectly affects the fabric of society.”At the crest of this wave is Olga Koper, research leader at Columbus, Ohio’s nonprofit Battelle Memorial Institute since May 2011 and holder of more than 30 U.S. and international patents for composition and applications of nanomaterials.Koper, who describes her research as a “humongous playground to apply science to change and improve lives,” isn’t your usual ivory-tower type. “A lot of academia and national labs are great at fundamental science but don’t know how to turn it into a product,” she says. “In business, you have to take calculated risks, have failures and learn from them, and you have to address actual needs of the market–not with a ‘nice to have,’ but a ‘have to have.'” Jane McGonigal, Game Developer By Grant Davis Sophia Amoruso, TastemakerLinda Rottenberg, Entrepreneurship AdvocateOlga Koper, NanotechnologistYael Cohen, PhilanthropistMaria Flynn, Biotechnology ExecutiveTara Hunt, Social Marketing AuthorityJane McGonigal, Game Developer “Games promote positive health aspects, optimism, social support and resilience,” McGonigal says. “We know games have the power to change the state of the brain, stimulating parts of the brain that therapy doesn’t.”Leaders in science are taking her work seriously. Last year The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center began clinical trials on the efficacy of SuperBetter to treat traumatic brain injuries, and the University of Pennsylvania Positive Psychology Center greenlighted a randomized controlled user study of the game to treat depression. Results from the UPenn study are expected this spring.According to McGonigal, the appeal of SuperBetter (which is played by 125,000 people worldwide) is that unlike many medications that treat such conditions, it has no side effects–and people always want to see what works better than current protocols. It’s a big promise, and to shepherd her game into the healthcare arena, McGonigal has taken an “entrepreneurial sabbatical” of undetermined length from her role as director of games research and development at Palo Alto, Calif.’s Institute for the Future.”Ninety-nine percent of teenage boys and 94 percent of teenage girls in this country play online games,” she says, equating the acceptance of gaming by the next generation to TV watching. She also points out that there are more than 1 billion people playing online games around the world. “And all these people are learning from their failures,” she says. “Gamers fail 80 percent of the time, but they keep playing. There’s a connection between becoming a good gamer, learning from failure and being better at making life a game.” The technology is being applied in numerous ways, such as developing a vaccination that includes the follow-up dose; taste-masking oral pills to neutralize flavor; and even working with antimicrobials for the U.S. Department of Defense to improve ready-to-eat meals for the Army.”It’s a challenge to get from the academic lab into a full-scale manufacturing process, so we’d like to be that facilitator of technology in the control-release space,” Flynn says. Eventually, she adds, “we’d like to see a turnkey system that can go into a lot of different places.”Flynn, who has an MBA and degrees in civil and environmental engineering, formerly worked in business development for international healthcare IT firm Cerner. Wishing to pursue an entrepreneurial venture, in 2008 she joined with co-founders Bo Fishback and Cory Berkland at Orbis. Her diverse background gave her the ability “to go into industries and learn quickly and put pieces together,” she says.”There’s a need for innovative working models, and I think an entrepreneurial setting is a great place to set that up,” adds Flynn, who for the past four years has also been involved in Pipeline, a community for Midwestern entrepreneurs in technology and life sciences. “Work with the best people you can, the best partners you can find, and stretch each other farther than you think you might be able to go.” Maria Flynn, Biotechnology Executive By Michelle Juergen This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience.

But the current reality is this: While the number of U.S. companies owned by women is increasing faster than those of other groups, those companies are responsible for just 6 percent of the country’s employees and 4 percent of revenue, according to a 2012 report commissioned by American Express Open. Meanwhile, many studies maintain that women have significantly reduced access to capital and encounter less favorable loan rates. And don’t get us started on the discrepancies in compensation between men and women performing equal work.As relevant (and dispiriting) as these financial truths may be, they are at odds with the fact that fundamentally women are a more powerful presence in business than ever, as a work force and as entrepreneurs, technicians and corporate leaders. Here, we’ve identified innovators from several significant sectors: science, technology, retail and health, not to mention social and business services. We are certain their contributions and influence will have a profound impact going forward.

That’s why she’s in the business of making those experiences a bit more tolerable.Flynn is president and CEO of Orbis Biosciences, a Kansas City, Kan.-based startup that develops original controlled-release delivery systems for the pharmaceutical and consumer product industries. Traditional techniques for making controlled-release solutions (for things like medications, vitamins, flavoring agents and pest-control products) create non-uniform particles that can lead to variable delivery; Orbis’ technology creates microspheres of an exact uniform size, allowing for highly precise release rates and dosage control.

Subscribe » Back in 2007 Koper joined the charter class of Pipeline, an invitation-only mentoring organization affiliated with the Kauffman Foundation and Microsoft, known for honing business-development skills in new entrepreneurs. As CTO and vice president of NanoScale Corporation, a spinoff of Kansas State University (where she earned her Ph.D. in chemistry), she led the development of commercial products. Among them were FAST-ACT, a nanopowder that absorbs and mitigates toxic and waste chemicals, and an in vitro cancer-diagnosis system–currently in animal and preliminary human testing–in which nanoparticles measure the activity of cancer-specific enzymes in blood and urine using luminescence.At Battelle, Koper is studying the use of nanomaterials in membranes for water desalination and treatment; supercapacitors (energy-storage devices that provide higher power densities than batteries); and bio-based (rather than petroleum-based) additives used for hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, to retrieve natural gas.”It’s exciting, because the research can make a huge impact in energy storage and the oil and gas industry,” she says. “Hopefully we’ll see products containing these nanomaterials in the market.”And not a (nano)second too soon.

After her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009, Cohen made her a “F*** cancer” T-shirt, then started a Facebook group by the same name. Before long, the group had more than 1,000 members sharing support. Four years later, and with nearly 66,000 Facebook followers, F*** Cancer has turned into a fast-growing nonprofit.The primary goal of the Vancouver, British Columbia-based organization is to spread the word about early detection. F*** Cancer has dozens of brand ambassadors using social media to encourage teens and twentysomethings to talk to their parents about getting mammograms, colonoscopies and other diagnostic screenings to “actively look for cancer, not just find it. Cancer is most curable at stage I,” Cohen says. But this isn’t your typical charity for the politically correct set. The organization’s cheeky attitude and Cohen’s seemingly boundless energy have attracted celebrities like One Tree Hill star Sophia Bush to help get the word out. The marketing is edgy: October’s “Touch Yourself” campaign in partnership with Women’s Health and Men’s Health magazines ditches traditional pink National Breast Cancer Awareness Month branding in favor of a naked woman holding her breasts, encouraging women to do self-exams for early detection.F*** Cancer’s December 2012 fundraising brought in roughly $500,000. Cohen has built trust among donors by posting an infographic on the organization’s website that tracks incoming donations and expenses. She says that kind of transparency is important to her community, which expects access to information about the organization’s activities and how its money is being spent.”For our parents and grandparents [cancer is] the ‘C-word,'” she says. “We want to shift away from that fear-based marketing and focus on the fact that approximately 90 percent of cancers are curable if caught in stage I.” Jane McGonigal, Game Developer Olga Koper, Nanotechnologist Now, says Hunt, who currently works as digital and content director at Tuxedo Agency in Montreal, the rules have changed. Companies want customers immediately, and they want to bypass the work it takes to get them. “Brands [are] vying for attention and throwing a lot of money trying to get that attention and bending the rules of the social sphere,” she says. “Social networks like Facebook, Tumblr and YouTube have built a lot of tools to help brands jump the line by paying a certain amount of money.” Those tools help support the ecosystem, so they aren’t necessarily bad, Hunt says, unless they prevent companies from learning how to truly engage with their customers.”When it comes to social, small is the new big,” she declares. Businesses that take the grassroots tack, “playing by the rules of engagement for building real relationships, not paid-for relationships,” are the ones with staying power. Hunt cites Zappos, the darling of social marketing, whose focus on little gestures results in dedicated and satisfied customers who are happy to spread the word.Hunt likens her industry to a pimply teenager: still making mistakes, still experiencing growing pains. Even her own recent startup, Buyosphere, has evolved, pivoting from a social retail platform offering insight into community buying patterns to a fashion-advice network. And as social marketing continues to find its footing, Hunt is happy to help guide it through adolescence. Sophia Amoruso, TastemakerLinda Rottenberg, Entrepreneurship AdvocateOlga Koper, NanotechnologistYael Cohen, PhilanthropistMaria Flynn, Biotechnology ExecutiveTara Hunt, Social Marketing AuthorityJane McGonigal, Game Developer The basic idea hasn’t strayed much from Rottenberg’s initial plan. “We had sketched out search, select, support, give back–that the entrepreneurs would start giving back to Endeavor,” she says. “On the big-picture level, it is almost exactly what we had envisioned.”But the program’s influence is even greater than Rottenberg could have imagined. Since its founding, Endeavor–which has 17 offices around the world and is aiming for 25 by 2015–has worked with 726 entrepreneurs. In 2011 program participants earned $5 billion in revenue and created 200,000 jobs.

first_imgPerth Airport Perth Airport has announced it has secured Broad Construction Services (WA) Pty Ltd to undertake the first stage of it’s A$300 million expansion works of the international terminal.The initial construction stage will begin in May 2012, and includes a major expansion of the incoming duty free retail shops, immigration area on the first level and the baggage reclaim hall.The expansion which is scheduled to be completed in 2014 will help alleviate the congestion in queuing and waiting times for its customers.Perth Airport chief executive officer, Brad Geatches said the expansion would ensure the airport was able to meet the rapid growth in international passenger numbers. “We are very aware that, due to the growth in international passengers to over 3.3 million in 2011, more than 220,000 up on the prior year, the current international arrivals experience is not what it should be,” Mr Geatches said.“We are committed to ensuring everyone who travels through Perth Airport has a high quality experience, so we are completely changing the arrivals journey and doubling the size of all processing areas.”Mr Geatches said Broad Construction Services is also currently working on the construction of the new A$120 million Domestic Terminal, which will service regional WA and some interstate routes from early next year.Additionally, in an effort to reduce congestion to the International Terminal, Perth Airport has just completed a new intersection between Tonkin Highway and Dunreath Drive.The A$10 million intersection is located to the north of the current Tonkin Highway/Leach Highwayintersection. The intersection allows passengers to travel between Tonkin Highway and the International Terminal, however, it does not allow access to the Domestic Terminals. “We are investing more than A$750 million over three years to expand Perth Airport, and thetransformation of the current International Terminal represents the first stage towardsachieving our vision of having all commercial air services operating from one convenient location by 2020,” Mr Geatches added.last_img read more

NewsWritten by Mihir Vasavda | New Delhi | Updated: December 20 2016 8:23 am Harendra Singh was team’s coach while PR Sreejesh was the goalkeeper of the junior squad in 2005 which lost the World Cup Top News Just days before the junior hockey team left for its first tournament in 2014 coach Harendra Singh received a call from his family informing him that his cousin – an Armyman – had sacrificed his life while fighting insurgents in Mizoram Midfielder Santa Singh a jovial 20-year-old was relaxing with some of his teammates after a strenous training session in mid-2015 when he learnt about the death of his sister back home in Sant Nagar near Chandigarh In July this year as Krishan Pathak geared up for his debut international tournament a tour to England his sister from Nepal called to break the news of their father’s passing away The junior India hockey team was crowned world champions after a gap of 15 years when they beat Belgium 2-1 in the final Behind the joyous Sunday evening scenes are tragic moments that went a long way in forging a strong bond among the players and shape the character of this team The Johor Cup in Malaysia in October 2014 was the first time Harendra had a proper assessment of his players He had been appointed coach six months earlier but they had been involved only in camps The team management decided to leave five days before the tournament began to ensure the players were properly acclimatised For a majority of the players this was their first international tour On the day they were supposed to leave Harendra got a call from his family His cousin Mukesh was martyred “I did not know how to react I called my players to the meeting room and told them what had happened” Harendra says “(Assistant coach BJ) Kariappa insisted that I return to my village to complete the rituals Since the team was going five days in advance he said I could join them before the tournament began” But Harendra refused Abandoning the team ahead of its first major tournament would set a bad precedent he felt “I felt it was necessary to set an example To achieve team goals you need to make individual sacrifices That’s the message I wanted to give to the boys” he adds This wasn’t the only tragic incident Harendra suffered as he prepared his bunch of world beaters In December last year as the team’s preparation entered its home stretch Harendra’s son injured his right eye in a freak accident while playing football His retina was damaged to such an extent that 80 per cent vision was lost in the eye Others in the team too made sacrifices Santa Singh who started in the midfield in every match of the tournament chose to skip his sister’s funeral last year while back-up goalkeeper Pathak did not travel to Nepal for his father’s last rites because he wanted to travel with the team for one of their most important exposure tournaments before the World Cup in July Galvanizing effect These incidents brought the team together Harendra says “We have a Whatsapp group so everyone gathered in the team meeting room within five minutes And they would not let the player who suffered the loss stay alone even for a moment Someone or the other was there to take care of him” Harendra says The coach himself focused on the emotional and psychological needs of the players knowing well that these are the two key areas where Indian players had invariably faltered In his first meeting with the players he reminded them of the Sydney Olympics debacle where India conceded a late goal against Poland to miss out on a semifinals berth “I told them that Indian teams of the past would get too emotional at times which cost them a lot” Harendra who began as a coach in 1998 and has won nine gold medals since says Harendra was a part of the coaching staff back in 2000 as well He is the ultimate survivor Various federation presidents have come and gone the association itself was dissolved and formed again and a dozen other coaches have been employed and sacked But Harendra regarded as one of the most technically sound coaches has stayed on It’s hard to think of a player in the last decade or so who would not have been coached by Harendra at some point in his career – be it with the junior or senior India teams or domestically with Air India CAG or in the HIL He has coached every junior World Cup team since 1998 except the one in 2009 He was in charge of the team in the build-up to the 2001 World Cup which India won and was briefly involved with the team that took part in the 2013 edition They say India had the best generation of players for those two editions But they were all individualistic in nature The hallmark of this team is its unity And that Harendra says is a result of the hard times they have faced “As a sportsman sometimes you are not there when your family needs you the most It hurts” he says “But the sacrifices are worth it We faced all problems together as a team That’s why we won the World Cup” For all the latest

Parking Problem Whichever part of the country he addresses campaign rallies — and he clocks an average 1100 km a day — Narendra Modi always returns home to Ahmedabad by nightfall The reason for this is not home-cooked food or the need to sleep in his own bed It is because if he is not in Ahmedabad the nightly parking fees of the aircraft in which he travels would be astronomical Modi usually travels in an Embraer aircraft from the Adani Group’s Karnavati Aviation All planes of this airline are parked in Ahmedabad so there is no need to pay hefty parking fees Instead of home-cooked meals

is ‘physical’ evidence that the CM is a "business partner of the absconder Lalit Modi" Addressing a press conference in New Delhi Ramesh called the Raje-Modi links in the transfer of the Dholpur palace property a bizarre example of "private-private partnership" "This is a private-private partnership to manage a public property without any revenues accruing to the Government of Rajasthan This is a bizarre PPP" he said PTI image The senior Congress leader also slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his silence on the issue "Governmental property was converted to personal assets by Lalit Modi and Vasundhara Raje" Ramesh said adding "We sadly have to state that Vasundhara Raje’s husband in 1980 made a statement saying Dholpur Mahal belongs to the state Raje and her family hold shares in Niyant Hotels She stated in 2013 poll affidavit that Lalit Modi holds shares too" Ramesh slammed the Rajasthan CM and said that the blame game between Raje and Lalit Modi had been on for the last15 days and she has finally accepted that the signatures were hers "Vasundhara Raje’s husband in a statement in court in 1980 said that the Dholpur Palace wasn’t personal property it belonged to the government Up until 2010 Dholpur Mahal was declared government property 6 times starting from 1954 In 2013 Vasundhara Raje said that Lalit Modi has 815 shares We will put these documents in front of the people of this country" he said "Iske baad agar Maunendra Dhritarahstra banna chahtey hain toh unki marzi hai (After this if Maunendra wants to remain aDhritarahstra then it’s his choice)It is not a question of if Vasundhara Raje will quit as Rajasthan chief minister but when and how Based on these documents it is imperative for Vasundhara Raje to quit as chief minister" Ramesh told the media on Monday He said that despite the palace being a government property Raje and Modi proceeded to convert it into a high-end private luxury hotel "This is the fourth episode in the serial of Vasudhara Raje and the fugitive Lalit Modi The first episode established Vasudhara Raje and Lalit Modi were business partners The second episode established that Lalit Modi got Rs 21 crore from Mauritius and invested in Dushyant Singh’s company The third established that Vasundhara Raje signed a seven-page document for UK authorities to help Lalit Modi What we are saying today is despite Dholpur City Palace being property of government Raje & Lalit Modi proceeded to convert it into a high-end private luxury hotel" Ramesh added The Indian Express earlier had reported that Raje’s son Dushyant Raje in his 2009 election affidavit made no mention of his company Niyant Heritage Hotels Pvt Ltd or the crores of rupees it received in unsecured loans from Lalit Modi’s company Ananda Heritage Hotels Pvt Ltd Dushyant had set up Niyant Hotels in 2005 the report further added The BJP earlier had backed Raje by saying that her shares in Niyant Hotels were given as gifts from her son and daughter-in-law "Dushyant [Singh] ji and his wife Niharika are the share holders in the Niyant Heritage Pvt Ltd Niharika from her personal shareholdings gifted 1615 shares to Vasundhara Raje on her birthday Along
