Jury of global experts at Pune International Film Festival

first_imgThe 16th edition of the Pune International Film Festival (PIFF), to be held from January 11 to January 18, will feature a jury of global cinema experts, including Italian filmmaker Maurizio Nichetti and Polish screenwriter-director Joanna Kos-Krauze.Fourteen films have been shortlisted for the PIFF competition, while nearly 200 films will be screened at the festival. A highlight this year will be the Kapoor family handing over 23 original negatives of films produced under the R.K. Studio banner to the National Film Archive of India (NFAI) on opening day of the festival, NFAI director Prakash Magdum said at a press conference on Thursday evening.“Actor Randhir Kapoor will hand over this rich trove to be deposited in the NFAI vaults. The 23 films include blockbusters like Awaara, Sangam, Bobby and Ram Teri Ganga Maili,” Dr. Magdum said. He said these are the original negatives, the best source and ideal format for long-term preservation of films. “We are thankful to the Kapoor family for entrusting NFAI with this prestigious collection so that it can be preserved for future generations.” The NFAI had been in talks with the Kapoor family for over a month. Randhir Kapoor is said to have visited the NFAI last month to inspect the vaults and storage facilities. Tribute to Raj Kapoorfire in September last year gutted Stage 1 of R.K. Studios in Mumbai, resulting in loss of priceless memorabilia and artefacts. The film negatives, stored in another building, were not damaged.PIFF will also feature a pavilion dedicated to Raj Kapoor, where five of his works — Aag, Mera Naam Joker, Shree 420, Sangam and Bobby — will be screened, said Dr. Magdum. “There will be a discussion on these films with director Subash Ghai, and actor Rishi Kapoor is expected to attend,” he said.Filmmaker Jabbar Patel, who is the festival director, said Bobby was chosen as it went with this edition’s theme of ‘Youth’. Dr. Patel said noted filmmakers and scriptwriters like Sri Lankan filmmaker Vimukthi Jayasundara, scriptwriter Kamlesh Pandey, Mexican director Rodrigo Pla, Canadian director Mathieu Denis and Iranian actress Gelareh Abbasi would be part of the jury along with Mr. Nichetti and Ms. Kos-Krauze. In memoriam“We are also organising homage screenings in memory of actors and filmmakers who passed away recently. These include tributes to director Kundan Shah and actors Vinod Khanna, Shashi Kapoor, Reema Lagoo and Shyama. There is also a section titled ‘Women’s Empowerment’, which will feature films like Bimal Roy’s Parineeta and Satyajit Ray’s Teen Kanya,” said Dr. Patel.In addition, seven Marathi films, including four unreleased ones, have been shortlisted for the PIFF competition. Since 2002 the eight-day festival has been organised by the Pune Film Foundation in collaboration with the Maharashtra government.last_img read more

India’s golden shooting spree

first_imgOmkar, Vijay bag gold; Gagan and Imran join the party too It appears India’s record of 16 shooting gold at the Melbourne Commonwealth Games will obliterated soon. On Friday, Omkar Singh and Vijay Kumar clinched gold in 10m air pistol and 25m rapid fire pistol events respectively. This was Omkar’s third gold of the Delhi games; for Vijay, it was his second.Another gold came through the men’s 50m rifle 3 position pair of Gagan Narang and Imran Hassan Khan. In the men’s trap pairs, Manavjit Singh Sandhu and Mansher Singh combined to shoot an unprecedented 197 birds, only for Australia to pip them to the gold by one bird.Add to this a bronze won by Gurpreet Singh in rapid fire, and India’s tally after Day 4 of the nine- day shooting event stands at 10 gold, seven silver and a bronze.Narang, who is targeting six gold medals, won his third in as many events, thanks to an outstanding 397/ 400 in the prone round. He then shot identical 385s in the standing and kneeling rounds, while Khan shot 395, 381 and 382 to help India break the 16- year- old Games record of 2,300 points with 2,325.In the meantime, Vijay had broken his own record of 581 by shooting 583 in qualification for rapid fire. Gurpreet shot 569 to lie third, heading into the final. Vijay then shot an excellent 204.5 to beat his final record from Melbourne as well, setting 787.5 as the new benchmark.Despite one off- target shot, Malaysia’s Amir Hasan held on for silver, ahead of a surging Gurpreet.advertisementNavy’s Omkar equalled Samaresh Jung’s qualification record of 584 in 10m air pistol to be four points clear of Singapore’s Bin Gai and then shot 97.8 in the final to finish with three gold and a silver in his four events. Gurpreet finished fifth.There was disappointment for India in women’s trap pairs as they could only finish fifth. Australia won the gold, England got the silver and Canada took bronze.But the real battle of the day was in the men’s trap pairs where Australia’s Michael Diamond and Adam Vella, touted as the best trap team in the world, took on India’s vastly experienced Manavjit and Mansher.Mansher shot a brilliant 99 while Manavjit, who had shot 23 in his first round, went perfect over the next three series to finish with 98 and help India get to 197, a Games record.Vella also finished with 98, but two- time Olympic champion Diamond made it a perfect 100/ 100 to help Australia edge ahead.After the match, Mansher paid rich tribute to Diamond’s performance.”It had to be someone like Michael to beat us because nobody else in the world manages to do what he does regularly. This is what happens in shooting – you do so well and yet lose because somebody else has had a stellar day,” Mansher told Mail Today. The shooter, backed by the National Sports Development Fund, defended his teammate Manavjit, saying his was no mean score either.”Yes he did shoot 23 in the first round but then again, he shot 75 straight thereafter. It was a heavy load to carry and he did magnificently,” Mansher said.last_img read more

This can lead to the heaviest punishment: exclusion from the Uefa competitions.”If the information is correct, this possibly goes against truthful reporting. The financial fair play rules are based on a system of declaration, three months after the clubs have closed their accounts, they have to deposit their figures. Then we do random checks on the truthfulness of those figures. The accounts are examined and approved internally and externally.” last_img read more

Hockey Refs Are Out To Get You If They Already Got The

Kerry Fraser, a former NHL official who worked more than 1,900 regular-season games and 13 Stanley Cup Finals from 1980 through 2010, remembers calling penalty after penalty on the Philadelphia Flyers early in his career. “They were a very aggressive team,” he said during a phone interview. “Especially in Philly, they played really tough,” with players like Paul Holmgren and Craig Berube intimidating the opposition with their physicality. They would take penalties because they could kill penalties, knowing they had a stout goalie in Ron Hextall minding the net.When Fraser reffed Flyers games at the Spectrum, he was on the lookout for penalties committed by the home team. But he was also hyper-aware of what the other team was doing because he didn’t want to miss an infraction.“That’s bad game management,” Fraser said. “My mindset was, ‘OK, I’m not going to look for one on the other team just because one team has taken four or five in a row, but I sure as heck can’t afford to miss one.’ Your radar goes up, especially when the other team is in a checking position, and as soon as one is there, you make sure you get it.”Fraser was conscious of any widening gap between the number of penalties called on each team, even if the calls infractions were warranted. The stats suggest that other referees are as well.This is pretty compelling evidence that referees’ past calls influence their next calls. The chart includes every NHL penalty call between the start of the 2005-06 season and the end of the 2014-15 regular season,1We used play-by-play data from the nhlscrapr package in R. To eliminate the possibility that our findings would be driven by coincidental penalties, which often don’t give either team a power play, we dropped all infractions that occurred simultaneously. The margin of error for each probability was less than 1 percent. and it looks at all infractions in a game and how the difference in penalties called on each team affects the next call.2University of Texas at Austin professor Jason Abrevaya gives the penalties for exact sequences of violations in a paper in the Journal of Quantitative Analysis in Sports. As an example, if the home team has been called for three penalties and the away team five, the away team would be “owed” two calls. The tendency for prior violations to affect NHL penalties is enormous; when home teams are owed penalties, they are called for penalties at much lower rates, and the inverse holds for away teams.The effect is even more pronounced when a string of penalties against the same team starts a game. If a game starts with four straight penalties against the away team, for example, the home team is about three times as likely to be called for the next one.To Fraser, this isn’t about makeup calls. It’s a sign of good game management. “In the overall complexion of the game, it gives the team that has committed multiple infractions recognition that if they commit the crime, they’ll do the time,” he says. “On the other hand, they know the ref is fair because he called a penalty against the other team when he saw it. It doesn’t cause further frustration for the team that is taking more of the penalties.”When we called the NHL for comment, it declined to participate in this story. The league prohibits officials from talking to the media during the playoffs. Stephen Walkom, vice president and director of officiating, declined to speak through a PR rep, who wrote that Walkom “really doesn’t want to do anything to make the officiating the center of attention during the playoffs.”In playoff games, the referees’ balancing effect grows even stronger. Our hypothesis: referees are trying to even out playoff games, where the pressure is on for the officials to avoid becoming a storyline. When the home team is owed a penalty in the playoffs, the frequency of calls on the visiting team is significantly higher than it is during the regular season. (If the away team is owed a penalty or penalties, the effect is about the same as it is during the regular season.)Overtime produces the most dramatic results, with the second penalty call of the extra period about three times as likely to be whistled on the team that received the first power play.Take Game 1 of the first-round match between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Nashville Predators in Nashville, Tennessee, as an example. At the 12:42 mark of the first overtime period, Chicago’s Brad Richards earned a two-minute penalty for a high stick on the Predators’ Ryan Ellis. Minutes later, Chicago’s Duncan Keith hauled down Nashville’s Taylor Beck just as Beck skated past the blue line alone. It appeared to be a textbook holding call, if not a penalty shot.Your browser does not support iframes.However, neither referee Dan O’Halloran nor his partner, Brad Meier, sent Keith to the box. The Blackhawks avoided a second 5-on-4 situation and extended the game.It wasn’t hard to predict what was coming next: Less than three minutes after the teams returned to even strength, the Predators’ Seth Jones was sent to the box for tripping Bryan Bickell. It was a soft call, but it was one that went against the home team, evening up the number of penalties on each team in the overtime period.Your browser does not support iframes.Keith was again the focal point of the game in the second OT, when he scored the game-winner.Of course, there are other factors, such as style of play after spending time on special teams, or perhaps even a revenge factor, that could drive these results. But there’s more evening up of calls in the playoffs, where we’d expect players to have less incentive to retaliate given the higher stakes and closer games. Further, one factor that does not seem to account for the tendency of past calls to affect future ones is the game’s score: The shape of home-team penalty frequencies is the same as on the chart above, no matter the score.While referees attempt to even out penalty or foul calls in other sports like basketball,3See this research from Paul Gift, or this study from Cecilia Noecker. baseball4Check out Etan Green’s work. and soccer,5Find Babatunde Buraimo’s study here. the balancing effect may matter most in hockey, possibly affecting the outcome. Southern New Hampshire University’s Kevin Snyder and Mike Lopez (one of the authors you’re reading right now) found that for postseason games tied through the first period, the team that was owed a penalty was 20 percent more likely to come out on top. And, unlike in basketball, which penalizes players and teams for having too many fouls (through the free-throw bonus and the player cap at six fouls), hockey players and teams are free to rack up penalty after penalty, if they so choose.Call it a biased impartiality. Referees want to appear impartial, which drives them to make partial decisions. The result: New York Post headlines like “In Rangers-Penguins, blind-eye refs are ruining NHL playoffs.” Referees can’t win. But they can be disliked equally. “Fans from all 30 cities say, ‘Kerry, you were hardest on our team,’” Fraser says. “That’s how I know I did a good job.” read more

Wrestling Ohio State volunteer coach Anthony Ralph finds talent in overlooked recruits

Anthony Ralph joined the Ohio State wrestling program as a volunteer assistant coach in October 2016. Credit: Courtesy of Ohio State AthleticsAnthony Ralph started in collegiate wrestling as a competitor at Kent State, but it wasn’t until he took a post-graduation job as an assistant coach at Notre Dame College that he realized the nuances of recruiting.“It was selling a school, getting the people to trust in you, building relationships that start through the recruiting process,” Ralph said. “If the student-athlete trusts you enough to come to a school that you believe in, it kind of builds that bond and friendship.” Now, as a volunteer assistant coach for the Ohio State wrestling team, Ralph has taken his love of recruiting and combined it with an analytical approach to find unheralded recruits who might bring success to the program. He calls his strategy “moneyball,” a reference to the analytics-driven success the Oakland Athletics had in 2002. “At Notre Dame, myself and a couple of the other coaches kind of came up with a system, an algorithm to find value in guys that other schools don’t see,” Ralph said. “It’s recruiting those guys that aren’t getting the everyday call from Penn State or Michigan, Iowa, Oklahoma State.”Ralph came to Notre Dame College in 2006 at the invitation of his former Kent State coach, Frank Ramano, who was creating the Falcons’ wrestling program. By 2012, Ralph had helped bring in No. 1 recruiting classes in the NAIA from 2012-16. During his time as an assistant coach, he helped lead the Falcons to three NAIA national titles as well as an NCAA Division II team championship in 2014, producing 18 national champions and 62 All-Americans. “Before I left, I think we were No. 1 in the country the last five years,” Ralph said. “So, something I kind of took pride on because I couldn’t compete anymore. That was kind of my way of competing, as far as with other programs.” Ohio State associate head wrestling coach J Jaggers noticed Ralph’s success and kept his childhood friend from northeast Ohio on his radar.By December 2016, the old friends were reunited in Columbus, using the same algorithm that brought him success with the Falcons. “What his system is designed to do is provide depth, find value in some kids that the [recruiting] rankings may not indicate at the time,” Jaggers said.Ralph said the secret of the algorithm is to focus on wrestlers who specialize in scoring. It spots kids who are taking the most risks on the mat, showing consistency in shot attempts and points scored. This helps find wrestlers who are assertive rather than passive, head coach Tom Ryan said.“There are a lot of guys that win at the high school level that are not points scorers, lots of state champions, lots of highly ranked guys that are not point scorers,” Ryan said. “When you look at one of the critical ingredients to success at the next level, it’s a desire to put yourself in scoring positions all the time, so a lack of fear.”Ryan said Ralph has already become a key part of the coaching staff, pointing to the amount of work he does to find guys who fit the culture of Ohio State wrestling. “The biggest thing in the biggest way is that he digs so much that he finds people that want to be here,” Ryan said. “We need depth and I would say that he has already, in his short time here, helped a lot with our depth.”Ralph said “moneyball” is more than just finding athletes to round out the wrestling roster. It is to continue to build what Ryan and the rest of the coaching staff has built at Ohio State. “Using that ‘moneyball’ system, we are not just looking for depth,” Ralph said. “We are looking for guys that can wrestle at the Big Ten level and become All-Americans and national champs.”Jaggers said he thinks Ralph could become the nation’s best recruiter. “When he put his mind to, ‘I’m trying to be the best recruiter in college wrestling,’ with his personality and his skill set, yeah it could easily happen,” Jaggers said. read more
