More than the talent, it’s always the IQ and the skill level. You might have the talent, but if you don’t know how to use it, it will still be difficult. You have to play with five players inside the court, and that’s what coach Charles, me and the rest of the coaching staff are trying to instill in our team. Everybody has to rotate, everybody has to move the ball, share the ball, because that’s how we’re gonna get.””Hopefully, we bring that kind of experience to our campaign this coming season.

Creche operators across Donegal have reacted with shock to last night’s RTE Primetime documentary into cruelty at some facilities.The shocking documentary showed toddlers being manhandled and physically abused and called names by childcare workers.The undercover investigation uncovered a litany of abuse in various childcare facilities. Avril McMonagle, manager of the Donegal County Childcare Committee, said she was “shocked, appalled and sickened” by the Primetime documentary.“We knew it was going to be quite serious and damning but nothing prepared us for the cruelty of the programme,” she said.Ms McGonagle said the State had to accept a responsibility for “shirking their responsibility” for the early childcare sector.“There needs to be a complete overhaul of the system,” she said. She added the fact there was no regulation of pay scales within the industry showed how open it was to abuse by those working within it.

New Delhi: Former Finance Minister and senior Congress leader, P Chidambaram was on Wednesday night arrested by the CBI amidst the high drama, where officials had to scale the walls of his Jor Bagh home to enter the premises and take him into custody.Investigative agencies sprung into action after the Supreme Court of India closed for business on Wednesday. Earlier in the day, the Apex court had denied an urgent hearing to Chidambaram’s Special Leave Petition (SLP), seeking protection from arrest in the INX Media case. Also Read – India gets first tranche of Swiss bank a/c detailsOfficials here said that Chidambaram was arrested based on an arrest warrant issued by a competent court. Sources here said that a Rouse Avenue court here had issued the arrest warrant for the former Finance Minister, in the INX case. While, the court referred the matter to the CJI, which lawyers say will now be heard on Friday, Chidambaram was seen in public for the first after the Delhi High Court denied him bail in the case. The veteran Congress leader arrived at the AICC headquarters here, where he delivered a short statement and left. Also Read – Tourists to be allowed in J&K from ThursdayHe emphasised that he was not evading the law and that he was trying to get the law’s help in this matter. He added he that had not been named in the FIR or its contents and that the CBI was yet to file a charge sheet in the case against him. A CBI team missed Chidambaram by minutes at the AICC headquarters. However, when he reached his Jor Bagh residence, CBI and ED teams were not being allowed to enter. The drama escalated to a point where officials from both agencies had to scale the wall to enter the premises. At least three teams from CBI and one from ED were at the residence assisted by at least 20 Delhi Police officials. The Enforcement Directorate had issued a Look Out Circular (LOC) against Chidambaram on Tuesday, and so did the CBI. As soon as the Apex court opened on Wednesday, Chidambaram’s lawyers approached the senior-most judge as directed and tried to ask for an urgent hearing to get their client protection from arrest and a stay on the Delhi High Court order that denied him anticipatory bail in the case. However, given the “magnitude” of the case, the court forwarded the matter to the CJI. As Chidambaram’s lawyers went into a huddle trying to get the matter formally listed in the docket, the SC registry cited some “defects” with Chidambaram’s SLP, saying the error might come in the way of listing the matter. In the SLP, Chidambaram’s lawyers asked whether he can be denied bail even when he is not named in the FIR or its contents, and when he has fully co-operated with investigators. The petition asks whether the High Court was right in considering only the case diary and select questions where Chidambaram allegedly gave evasive answers while denying him bail.Chidambaram’s petition also notes that all other arrested accused in the case have already been granted bail. Lawyers later in the day said that the Apex court would not hear the matter until Friday morning, thus allowing agencies time till then to arrest Chidambaram. However, the sitting Congress Rajya Sabha MP had not been seen since he left court premises on Tuesday. Chidambaram did not return to his Jorbagh residence, where a six-member CBI team visited just hours after the Delhi High Court lifted his arrest shield. The CBI team arrived at the residence once again after 11:15 pm to paste a notice outside the house, ordered the former Finance Minister to join the investigation within two hours of receiving it and also sent it to his email address. Sources here said that Chidambaram has not joined the investigation and that no fresh summons has been issued to him as of yet.

As my former colleague Reuben Fischer-Baum wrote on a couple of occasions, it’s when all four major U.S. sports leagues — the NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB — play at least one game on the same day. Historically speaking, it doesn’t happen often. There have only been 17 sports equinoxes in history, including Thursday: Oct. 15, 1972Sun1 (WS Game 2)1236 Oct. 27, 1985Sun1 (WS Game 7)1315 Oct. 22, 1972Sun1 (WS Game 7)1235 Oct. 14, 1979Sun1 (WS Game 5)1337 Nov. 1, 2010Mon1 (WS Game 5)133 NUMBER OF GAMES Nov. 1, 2009Sun1 (WS Game 4)1274 Oct. 19, 1980Sun1 (WS Game 5)1336 Nov. 1, 2015Sun1 (WS Game 5)1275 Oct. 30, 2016Sun1 (WS Game 5)1178 Oct. 19, 2017Thu1 (NLCS Game 5)139 Amazingly, there was a 15-year period without a single sports equinox, between 1985 and 2001. And after 2001, seven more years passed without it happening. But sports equinoxes have occurred much more frequently in recent years — six have happened in the nine years since 2008. They might become even more common in the future, thanks to Thursday-night NFL becoming a fixture, the World Series often running later than usual, and a new NBA scheduling policy this season that moved the season’s opening night up by a week and a half.If the Cubs can force Game 7 in the NLCS, Sunday will be another sports equinox. As will Oct. 29, if Game 5 of the World Series takes place. But even if those do happen, Thursday’s equinox will be the only one this season with the added bonus of college football — there are two FBS games tonight, including No. 25-ranked Memphis at Houston (A “Super Equinox”?). Good luck finding enough screens to watch it all!
