Special to the PRESSEditor,We support the proposed Rio Grande LNG project because people in the Rio Grande Valley need the good-paying jobs that this proposed project will bring. An economic study by the Perryman Group shows that the project would bring thousands of jobs during construction and add a few hundred permanent jobs when the facility is operating.A project like this will make a huge, positive difference in one of the poorest areas of Texas. These good-paying jobs will provide a better quality of life for families and create more business for many small businesses, such as for our restaurant, Mariscos De La Rosa.We believe that the Rio Grande LNG project is safe for the community or we would not be supporting it.We urge everyone to get behind this project as we have so that more Brownsville residents and businesses can benefit from the economic opportunities that Rio Grande LNG will provide for many years. Too much is at stake when it comes to our families, employees, customers, the community and our economy.Rodolfo De La RosaAnahi De La RosaMariscos De La Rosa RestaurantBrownsvilleWant the whole story?

EFE/Sport EN 29/05/2020 Upd. at 20:24 “Martin’s story is history and I’m hurt for him because he’s going to have less minutes, he’s a valiant player. But it’s water under the bridge, history for Leganes and for me. We only have to focus on what we have right now.” Indias: “El daño que se nos hizo con el fichaje de Braithwaite fue brutal” Txema Indias, Leganes’s sporting director, spoke about Martin Braithwaite’s departure to Barcelona as an emergency signing earlier this year. “It left me fuming because I thought the damage it did us was brutal,” he said. “Now I only think about the players we have in our squad, who are those that are going to help us avoid relegation.

Australian spin legend Shane Warne has little doubt that Sachin Tendulkar would get his 100th international century on the present tour Down Under, but he wished the iconic Indian batsman to reach the feat in the first cricket Test starting December 26 here.”I feel Sachin would get his 100th century (in Australia) but I wish he does so in Melbourne,” Warne said on the sidelines of a function at the Melbourne Cricket Ground where his 300kg bronze statue was unveiled this morning.Warne, who in his entire career could claim Tendulkar’s wicket only thrice in Test matches, has enormous respect for the champion Indian batsman whom he rates as the best willow-wielder of his time.The first match against Australia would be Tendulkar’s 185th Test. He has so far made 15,183 runs from 303 innings with 51 centuries at an average of 56.03 in five-day games.Tendulkar also has 18,111 runs from 453 ODIs with 48 centuries under his belt at an average of 45.16.Tendulkar, though, has struggled to add to his tally of 99 international centuries this year ? his last ton being 111 against South Africa at Nagpur in March during the World Cup.His last Test century was also against South Africa – 146 at the Newlands, Cape Town in January and has been without a ton in the longest format of the game in his last 14 innings.On the present tour, India revisits Melbourne again in February, though it would be for a 50-over match against Australia on February 3.Meanwhile, Warne also expects the famed Indian batting line up to do well in the upcoming series.advertisement”I think their batters, especially Rahul Dravid, will make big runs. He’s a quality person, a quality act, a quality player.”India has a quality team. In Test cricket we’ve seen them, against the West Indies. Their batsmen will do pretty well,” said Warne, who ended his career with 708 wickets from 145 Tests at a staggering average of 25.42.The former leg-spinner, however, did not boast of an impressive record against India. In his 14 Tests against India, Warne captured only 43 wickets at an average of 47.19.If Warne is confident about India’s good showing in the batting department in Australia, he has serious doubts over the visitors’ bowling abilities.”Their bowlers will have to stay fit. If Zaheer Khan or Ishant Sharma get injured, then I think their bowling attack could be quite weak. The Australian batsmen could perform pretty well. I think it’s going to come down to how India are going to take 20 wickets with their bowling,” he said.

Hyderabad: The probe into the data theft case against IT Grids, a firm providing IT services to Andhra Pradesh’s ruling Telugu Desam Party (TDP), has gathered pace, said a top officer on Saturday. The Special Investigation Team (SIT) has stepped up the probe, said Inspector General of Police Stephen Ravindra, haeding the SIT, after more searches and scene reconstruction at the company’s office in Madhapur here. SIT along with clues team, scientific and technical advisors and experts visited the IT Grids office. “As part of the investigation, today we are reconstructing the scene here,” the official told reporters at the firm’s office.

He said devices and other material seized so far were sent to Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) for analysis and the same would be submitted to the court. The SIT was awaiting a reply from Amazon and Google about the data being used by IT Grids. On quash petition filed by IT Grids CEO D. Ashok in Telangana High Court, Stephen Ravindra said they would counter the petition. Cyberabad police had booked a case against IT Grids on March 2 on a complaint by T. Lokeswara Reddy that sensitive data including personal information of citizens of Andhra Pradesh was being processed illegally by the company without consent of the citizens. The data was allegedly used by the company for an app developed by it for TDP cadres.

SIT was on the lookout for D. Ashok to interrogate and find out how he had access to data from government database. SIT chief said data of Telangana citizens was also found with the company. The police case and subsequent developments have triggered a huge row between the Telugu states with Andhra Pradesh alleging that TDP’s data was stolen under a conspiracy by Telangana’s ruling party Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) and YSR Congress party. In a tit-for-tat, Andhra Pradesh government on Thursday set up an SIT to probe data theft case against Telangana.
Bengaluru: India’s second Moon mission that is planned for a July launch will have 13 payloads and one passive experiment from American space agency NASA, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) said Wednesday.”Thirteen Indian payloads (8 on orbiter, 3 on lander and 2 on rover) and one passive experiment from NASA,” ISRO said in a mission update, but did not specify them or their objective. The spacecraft with a mass of 3.8 tonnes has three modules–Orbiter, Lander (Vikram) and Rover (Pragyan). Also Read – 2019 most peaceful festive season for J&K: Jitendra SinghAll the modules are getting ready for Chandrayaan-2 launch during the window of July 9 to July 16, 2019, with an expected Moon landing on September 6, the space agency had said earlier this month. The orbiter will orbit 100 km from the lunar surface, while lander (Vikram) will do the soft landing near the south pole of moon, and Rover (Pragyan) will conduct in-situ experiments. The orbiter and lander modules will be interfaced mechanically and stacked together as an integrated module and accommodated inside the GSLV MK-III launch vehicle, ISRO has said, adding the rover is housed inside the lander. After launch into earth-bound orbit by GSLV MK-III, the integrated module will reach Moon orbit using orbiter propulsion module, and subsequently, lander will separate from the orbiter and soft land at the predetermined site close to lunar South Pole. Further, the rover will roll out for carrying out scientific experiments on the lunar surface, ISRO has said, noting that instruments are also mounted on lander and orbiter for carrying out scientific experiments. ISRO Chairman K Sivan had said in January, “We are going to land at a place where nobody else has gone-the Moon’s South Pole… it is unexplored region.”
Didier Drogba finally brought down the curtain on his glorious Chelsea career on Tuesday. The striker confirmed that he is leaving the club when his contract runs out at the end of June.The 34-year-old Ivory Coast international has spent eight years at Chelsea, scoring 157 goals in 341 appearances, and helped the Blues to win 10 titles.One of those titles, of course, was the Champions League victory over Bayern Munich on Saturday, when Drogba scored a late equaliser in normal time and then netted the winning kick in the penalty shootout.He said: “I wanted to put an end to all the speculation and confirm that I am leaving Chelsea. It has been a very difficult decision for me to make, but I am very proud of what we have achieved. As a team we have accomplished so much, and have won every single trophy possible. Saturday was a very special moment for everyone at the club and for all the fans, and I am very proud to have played my part in bringing many trophies to this club which has been my home for the last eight years.“I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at the club especially Roman [Abramovich], and my team-mates, many of whom have become very close friends and will be my friends for life. I would also like to say a very special thank you to the Chelsea fans, who have shown me so much love and support over the years.“I wish the club all the best and continued success for the future – you will always be in my heart.”Chelsea, meanwhile, praised the striker’s contribution to the most successful era of the club’s history. The chief executive, Ron Gourlay, said: “Didier is undoubtedly a Chelsea legend and will always be part of the Chelsea family. He is certainly leaving on a high after Saturday night but he feels the time is right for a new challenge.“Of course Didier has contributed so much to all of Chelsea’s recent successes. He has been a consummate professional during his entire time here and as one of the natural leaders in our squad he has been an inspiration to a lot of our younger players.“We have known for some time that this outcome was likely but Didier and the club only made a final decision on that in the last couple of days, because for obvious reasons neither Didier nor the club wanted to distract focus away from the Champions League final. The talks were amicable all the way through and we wish him all the best for the future. He is welcome back to Stamford Bridge at any time – either as a player or as a guest of ours.”Drogba leaves Chelsea having scored 157 goals in 341 appearances. He is the club’s fourth all-time highest scorer, his 34 goals in European competition is a Chelsea record by 10 goals and managed nine strikes in nine cup finals.He won three Premier League titles, four FA Cups, two Carling Cups and, finally, the Champions League. He has been named Chelsea’s Player of the Year and Players’ Player of the Year and won the Premier League golden boot twice.Read the rest of this story on the Guardian.co.uk
