first_img The U.S. Organic Trade Association has announced an “engaged and bold plan” to move forward with a voluntary industry-invested organic research, promotion and education check-off program.It said the program will be collaboratively designed and implemented by organic stakeholders across the supply chain.”The Organic Trade Association recognizes great demand for coordinated organic research and promotion, and the organic sector is ready to work together on innovative solutions that will have key benefits for organic,” said Laura Batcha, OTA CEO and executive director.”In today’s political environment, organic companies and stakeholders are increasingly seeking private sector solutions, and the trade association is taking the lead in supporting these efforts.”There is a critical need to educate consumers about organic, for more technical assistance to help more farmers transition to organic, and to loudly promote the organic brand. Responding to that need, we are launching a two-track effort to develop a voluntary governance approach and to also advance initiatives that will deliver immediate big wins for the organic sector.”The trade association has formed a Steering Committee to coordinate and lead the efforts.The committee is charged with addressing the governance questions around a voluntary program to maximize good participation and decision making, and also to bring together right now multi-pronged private efforts to foster coordinated organic research and promotion.

The OTA is joining forces with Organic Voices and the group’s “It’s Not Complicated” campaign to fund a nationwide message drive to reduce the confusion about organic.The goal for the campaign is to raise a minimum of US$1 million for each of the next two years.last_img read more

champion HS Prannoy who has taken over the role of India’s flagbearer at the $120000 New Zealand Grand Prix Gold badminton championships after the early exit of Ajay Jayaram remained on track for a podium finish when he quelled the challenge of Hong Kong’s Wei Nan in two straight albeit tough games at the North Shore Events Centre in Auckland on Thursday The fourth seeded Prannoy who beat the tenth ranked Hong Kong veteran by a 21-18 21-19 scoreline in a 46-minute third round clash was joined in Friday’s quarter-finals by 24-year-old Indian national champion Sourabh Verma who used his six-year age advantage to the hilt while outlasting compatriot and regular sparring-partner Parupalli Kashyap with a 21-18 13-21 21-16 verdict The 30-year-old Kashyap seeded 15th in Auckland was painfully aware of the fact that he needed to win the encounter in two games against the extremely fit No 7 seed Sourabh if he were to progress further in the tournament The younger man however was equally cognisant of that fact and made sure that he did all the front-running in their bruising 64-minute tussle File image of HS Prannoy AFP Sourabh broke into a 6-1 lead before Kashyap could get his bearings enlarged it to 10-3 and sat on that advantage throughout the opening game The older player did reel Sourabh in from a near-hopeless 8-16 position with a five-point burst and then came as close as 18-19 before the Dhar native closed out the game A disappointed Kashyap livid with himself for letting that opening game go was left with no alternative but to put everything he had into the second game in order to extend the tussle to a decider He took an early 7-3 lead went into the mid-game break at 11-7 and galloped away to 16-10 and 19-11 before restoring parity Normally such a supreme effort would have drained the older man’s resources particularly in view of the numerous injuries he has suffered in the recent past and the amount of time he has spent on the sidelines while recuperating from the setbacks He did trail his Gopichand Academy batchmate 0-4 and 4-9 but then made a monumental effort to neutralise the advantage at 11-all That was as far as he was allowed to go The fitter Sourabh began to score in all the longer rallies and moved to 14-11 and 18-12 before administering the coup-de-grace Just how close the encounter actually was could be seen from the final match statistics — total points played: 110 total points won: 55 each It is just that Sourabh won the points that mattered The Prannoy-Wei Nan pre-quarter-final was just as close though the Indian made sure he was not stretched to a third game After the match being at level pegging initially the World No 17 broke away to a 9-5 lead but the Hong Kong player won eight of the next nine points to wrest back the initiative at 13-10 Prannoy returned the favour by registering five consecutive points to go from 10-13 to 15-13 The players were locked at 16-all and Wei Nan actually went ahead 18-17 before the Indian took the final four points Wei Nan dominated the first half of the second game taking leads of 8-4 and 11-9 into lemon time But Prannoy upped the ante and came level at 12-all Point by point the two fought implacably until 16-all when the Indian made a big push for 18-16 and then match-point at 20-18 Try as he might the Hong Kong player could not prevent the Indian from bagging the vital winning point at 20-19 On Friday Prannoy cannot afford to take matters lightly when he crosses swords with Chinese Taipei’s 11th seeded Lin Yu Hsien who has had a serene run through to the quarter-finals The Taiwanese player had an impressive 21-16 21-14 opening win against China’s Lu Guangzu sailed through untroubled at 21-9 21-8 against India’s Sahil Sipani and then sidelined Erik Meijs of the Netherlands 21-16 21-12 in the pre-quarter-finals The 25-year-old Kaohsiung native has been on the world tournament circuit for close to seven years and is currently playing his best badminton having climbed to a career-high rank of 48 Extremely fit Yu Hsien is one of the few players on the circuit in this age of super-specialisation to play singles doubles and mixed doubles although his ranking in the paired events is nothing to write home about The two antagonists have played one previous encounter — at the Macau Open in November 2014 when Prannoy had emerged the winner in three close games making a spirited comeback after losing the opening stanza Age-wise neither has a clear advantage — the two are separated by 10 months with Prannoy having completed 25 years last month and Yu Hsien scheduled to turn 26 next month Nor is Sourabh likely to have an easy outing against Hong Kong’s unseeded Lee Cheuk Yiu who has already scalped two seeded players on his way to the last-eight stage On Thursday he handed 13th seeded Misha Zilberman of Israel a comprehensive 21-10 21-12 thrashing in exactly half an hour The sprightly 20-year-old Cheuk Yiu who is one of a bright young crop of Hong Kong players that have been making waves on the international scene in recent times made light of his 88th ranking as he notched a runaway triumph over the World No 51 Israeli His risky all-action style of play had earlier bamboozled third-seeded Jonatan Christie of Indonesia as the 21-17 21-13 second-round scores showed However what would tip the scales in the 37th ranked Sourabh’s favour are his qualities of fitness and steadiness and greater experience He would also be buoyed by the knowledge that Cheuk Yiu had been forced to taste defeat at the hands of fellow Indian Siril Verma at the Hanoi International Challenge in June 2016 although it must be conceded that the Hong Kong player has shown much improvement in the year since that reverse in Vietnam Written

Ahmedabad Top News Mic’d-up players soft-sledging and shot clock In the backyard of one of the game’s most-celebrated purist Geet Sethi cue sports will flirt with some of the boldest changes in its attempt to go the IPL way Cue Slam a city-based league that begins in Ahmedabad tonight [Saturday] doesn’t exactly promise to revolutionise the sport Instead the idea is to lift it out of anonymity And it’s poised to do it in a brash and glitzy manner Players’ wardrobes will now have bright-coloured polo shirts instead of the waist coats and bow ties They will be encouraged to have a go at each other while the crowd which is required to stay silent for the players to focus wouldn’t be stopped from cheering even when a player is hunched on the table Matches will last just 15 minutes and a player will have just 20 seconds to pot the ball “It’s something the connoisseurs of the game might not approve of” admits 16-time billiards world champion Pankaj Advani who will lead the Chennai Strikers squad “But to make it appealing to a wider audience it is important to shake things up I am excited to wear a yellow t-shirt instead of the bow tie It’ll brighten things up and look good on TV” Television needs in fact dictate the format One of the reasons Atul Pande who’s company Sportzlive has conceptualised the league chose Ahmedabad as the venue for the league’s first edition because ‘it’s Geet Sethi’s city’ But that’s where the tournament’s tryst with tradition ends Pande who was the CEO of a sports channel before starting this venture says 90 percent of the revenue generated by these leagues comes from television Its demands then cannot be ignored “The viewer engagement does not last beyond one-and-a-half to two hours” Pande says “In that time frame we have to finish a competitive match and also need enough moments to keep bringing people back again” The general perception of cue sports is that it is too formal The well-mannered crisply dressed cueists silent stands and three-hour long matches made cue sports spectator unfriendly even though it is one of the most popular leisure activities According to a survey by the league’s promoters roughly 25 million people play the sport recreationally and it is also the ‘most downloaded game on mobile phones’ Globally too India has done reasonably well For years the country’s cueists have won major international titles with Advani leading the current lot Yet the sport remains absent from the collective consciousness “The conventional style is pretty long-form and does not render itself easy to television A routine billiards or snooker game could last for three to three-and-a-half hours” Pande says “We are trying to crunch the matches into 20 minutes The TV and digital product needs to look appealing enough” To create drama – the staple for TRP-driven TV shows – players will be made to wear collar mikes They are expected to indulge in some banter and also engage the audience by voicing their thoughts while cueing up for a shot – a twist inspired by the IPL where players are wired up while on field “Our intention is to create a story rivalry of sorts Because rivalries are watched We still don’t know how it’ll play out on live TV” Pande says Cue Slam of course isn’t the first league to experiment with its format It’s promoters tried something similar with badminton which fetched them mixed results The Pro Badminton League had three games of 11 points each instead of the standard 15 The rivalries were created by having trump matches where the best player of each team player his counterpart The format attracted mixed reviews with the 11-point system drawing flak from the players However there are no such apprehensions among the players with regards to Cue Slam “It won’t be a club game There will be an element of seriousness to it but at the same time there is an attempt to make it look casual” Advani says Though the money isn’t as big as most other IPL-inspired leagues it’s still decent enough Advani for instance will earn approximately Rs 15 lakh for a week’s job Most of the ‘icon players’ earn in that bracket The league owners though do not expect to make any profit “We are investing a million dollars (roughly Rs 65 crore) But we will lose half-a-million This is our first year we are sampling and testing it out” Pande says The jury is out on whether the format clicks But it’s already dividing opinions Yasin Merchant India’s first professional snooker player says if the format deviates too much from the traditional format ‘then the purpose of popularizing the sport does not arise’ “If you want to look at it in terms of gimmickry it’s good for the game” the 50-year-old says “(But) People would rather prefer to watch a Geet Sethi making a 500 break in its pure form than something like this” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsThe University of Delhi has released its ninth cut-off list for the admission of candidates from

(Source: AP file) Top News Adam Nelson received his Olympic gold medal in the food court at Atlanta’s airport.Now let’s give him –and all other clean athletes –the recognition they deserve As more startling revelations came out Friday in the Russian doping scandal and an almost daily lineup of cheating athletes are nabbed through improved testing methods the International Olympic Committee needs to send a symbolic but powerful message that it will honour those who do things the right way No matter how long it takes Starting with the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang and the 2020 Summer Games in Tokyo the IOC should hold official medal ceremonies for those athletes who were cheated out of their glory because competitors were taking performance-enhancing drugs We’re talking about actual ceremonies in the arena or stadium where their sport is being held complete with a podium and flowers and flags and national anthems with thousands of fans cheering them on and billions from around the world watching on television For Nelson that would mean awarding him a gold medal in Tokyo that he actually won in the shot put 16 years earlier on the fields of Ancient Olympia at the 2004 Athens Games It won’t begin to make up for what he lost But it’s a good start “Anything they could do to recognize the athletes that were robbed of the moment would certainly go a long way toward repairing some of the damage that was done” Nelson said when reached by phone not long after the release of a sickening report further detailing systematic doping in Russia that involved more than 1000 athletes across more than 30 sports The IOC has taken baby steps to address this enormous stain on fair competition most notably storing the doping samples it takes at each Olympics so they can be tested up to 10 years later using enhanced techniques that weren’t available at the time Nelson is one of those who benefited but he’s hardly alone So far a total of 88 athletes from the 2008 Beijing Olympics and the 2012 London Games have turned up positive when further testing was conducted –more than half of them medalists including five gold medalists The IOC says ominously that many more positive tests are still expected from the retesting of those 4-year-old samples All of this has led to a massive re-writing of the official results and a redistribution of medals to athletes who were clean They deserve even more Think of those who initially finished outside the top three They were denied a chance to step onto the podium have a medal hung around their neck by a dignitary watch proudly as their country’s flag was raised above the arena Those who received a belated gold lost out on the playing of their national anthem a ritual that often brings tears to even the biggest stars All of this is easily rectified Bring them to the next Olympics The IOC has no firm rules governing exactly how athletes should be awarded their reassigned medals It leaves that up to the national Olympic committees recommending that they invite dignitaries and the media and play the Olympic anthem Four Belgium women who were bumped up to gold in a 2008 track and field relay after the Russian runner tested positive got a rousing ceremony and standing ovation from a 40000-strong crowd during a meet in Brussels three months ago For others the medal handover wasn’t nearly so glamorous Nelson settled for silver at the 2004 Athens Olympics only to learn more than eight years later than the competitor who beat him Yuriy Bilonog of the Ukraine had been caught doping by a later round of testing The IOC asked Nelson to return his silver medal before he received the gold Rightfully skeptical he refused to give up what he had until he got what was rightfully his Finally in what sounds like a hostage exchange an arrangement was made in July 2013 with the US Olympic Committee “I got a call from the USOC that one of their representatives was returning from a trip to the IOC that he had the gold medal and was passing through Atlanta” said Nelson who lives about an hour away in Athens (the Georgia version interestingly enough) “So I drove down to the airport and we met at the food court … I sat down at a table and he sat on the other side He asked me ‘Did you bring the silver medal’ I said ‘Yes Have you got the gold medal’ We put them down on the table and slid them across to each other That was pretty much it” When asked if he would be willing to go to Tokyo in almost four years for the sort of ceremony he missed out on in Greece Nelson said “You know I think so if that’s something they put on the table and they’re really serious about doing it … especially if it doesn’t interfere with the current athletes competing I don’t want to have that stuff detract from the current athletes” It wouldn’t detract at all If anything such a ceremony would send a message to all athletes that the IOC is fully committed to a fair level playing field We can’t imagine that any medalist who does things the right way would be opposed to sharing the spotlight with someone who received this sort of delayed justice Of course there are other issues the IOC desperately needs to address including some sort of compensation package for athletes who suffered financial losses because of doping Until then let’s at least give them the medal ceremony they earned “It sends a message” Nelson said “that we value the efforts of those athletes who were robbed of their moment” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsAhmedabad: In the presence of some of

the five-times World Cup champions to 1-0 at half-time but the dazzling Brazilians ripped apart the home defence with three second-half goals Souza who replaced injured striker Gabriel Jesus scored twice with other goals from defender Thiago Silva and substitute Taison with his first international goal Diego Souza (L) celebrates his goal with Marcio Rafael and Douglas Costa(R) during the friendly match AFP Brazil bounced back spectacularly from their 1-0 loss to Argentina at the same venue on Friday with captain Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho and Chelsea’s David Luiz performing outstandingly for the South Americans Brazil which did not bring stars Neymar Marcelo Dani Alves or Roberto Firmino to Melbourne still had far too much firepower for the Socceroos Brazil got off to a stunning start with a goal after just 12 seconds when defender Bailey Wright dithered and gave away the ball to Giuliano Giuliano sent Diego Souza through to beat goalkeeper Mitch Langerak for his first international goal But after the catastrophic start the Socceroos settled down with their passing improved from last week’s 3-2 win over Saudi Arabia in the World Cup qualifier Coutinho Brazil’s ninth captain since Tite became manager troubled the Australians with his deft close skills and touch while Luiz was rock solid as the holding midfielder in front of the back three The Brazilians made it 2-0 just after the hour when Luiz’s thunderous header from Coutinho’s corner came off the bar for Silva to nod home amongst a crowd of players in the six-yard box Langerak saved with his legs to deny Souza from scoring when Mark Milligan gave away possession to substitute Willian as Brazil turned the screws on the Socceroos Coutinho and Luiz Brazil’s two most influential players were substituted minutes apart before substitute Taison scored his first international goal After exquisite interplay by Willian Paulinho back-heeled the ball into Taison’s path to slot home Souza had a free header off corner in the third minute of stoppage time to round off the scoring for Brazil It was a sobering farewell for the Australians who leave on Wednesday for Russia and the Confederations Cup where they face Germany in their first game on 19 June "I guess the first half apart from the first action where we conceded a silly goal I thought it wasn’t too bad" Australia coach Ange
