See All E3 scheduleSaturday, June 8Electronic Arts — The game maker showed off 15 minutes of gameplay for its upcoming adventure game, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. It also announced new features for its free-to-download Apex Legends last-man-standing battle royale game, offering a new character and weapon to play with. The company also showed off a new paid update for The Sims 4, called Island Living, that brings the series to a tropical beach. Finally, the company did discuss drama over the mixed reviews for its Anthem action adventure game, saying it “learned a lot” and had more updates and features planned soon.Sunday, June 9Microsoft / Xbox — The gaming giant’s biggest news was Project Scarlett, its next-generation Xbox, coming in 2020. The new device is up to 4x more powerful, the company said, and like the next-gen PlayStation it’ll include a fast non-mechanical SSD hard drive, and it’ll be powered by custom innards built with the help of chipmaker AMD.  The company also announced that Halo Infinite will launch alongside Project Scarlett next year. Meantime, Microsoft is starting public tests of its Project xCloud streaming service in October, promising people the ability to play high end games on their mobile devices while away from home. While fans wait, Microsoft announced an update to its Xbox Elite Controller Series 2 as well as a slew of new games. And action star Keanu Reeves, fresh off the success of John Wick Chapter 3: Parabellum, was on stage to announce his involvement with Cyberpunk 2077, which is coming next year.Bethesda — Bethesda kicked off its event with humility over the mixed response to Fallout 76, but quickly went back on the offensive. Fallout 76 got a new Battle Royale mode, Wolfenstein Youngblood received a new trailer and a co-op mode. We got a new game called Deathloop from the clever folks behind Dishonored and Bethesda introduced us to Orion, a piece of tech from ID Software designed to make game streaming better on services like Google Stadia. The lion’s share of attention, however, went to Doom Eternal, which looked fantastic in both single player and multiplayer.Monday, June 10PC Gaming Show — This annual PC Gaming Show is held at a theater a short walk from the Los Angeles Convention Center, but still draws a large crowd, filling the 1,700-person capacity Mayan Theater in downtown Los Angeles. Inside, the usual suspects, from Halo to Doom, were nowhere to be found. Instead, the crowd cheered for PC-centric games including Zombie Army 4, Baldur’s Gate 3 and Terraria: Journey’s End. (No, the game sequel problem isn’t any better on PCs.) The highlight was a brief on-stage appearance by legendary game designer Yu Suzuki, responsible for classic such as Hang-On and Virtua Fighter. His long-awaited Shenmue 3 is expected in November, 18 years after Shenmue 2. Ubisoft — The French gaming giant announced its next big dystopian hacking adventure game, Watch Dogs: Legion, launching March 2020. The new game is set in near-future post-Brexit London, where the economy is failing and government is breaking down. The company also announced a new television show, called Mythic Quest, that will launch on Apple TV Plus. And it celebrated the 10th anniversary of its Just Dance party games. Square Enix — This was a huge franchise fair. The press conference started out with juicy details on Final Fantasy VII Remake, namely that it’ll be a two-part game. The first part, an entire Blu-Ray disc, will be devoted to exploring Midgar. After a flurry of trailers and an in-depth look at Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers, we then got the main event unveil: Marvel’s Avengers. Tuesday, June 11Nintendo (livestream only) — 9 a.m. PT (noon ET)We’re thereCNET will be on the ground, covering covering E3 2019 alongside our sister site, Gamespot.

Bank of Baroda Paytm in race to buy Snapdealowned FreeCharge Report

first_imgReuters fileTwo years after acquiring FreeCharge, its owner and e-commerce firm Snapdeal is apparently in talks with suitors who are keen to buy the mobile wallet company. Bidders looking forward to purchasing the mobile wallet include rival Paytm, state-owned lender Bank of Baroda and a media group’s arm.”All the three are the frontrunners for the deal,” business portal quoted one of the persons familiar with the development as saying.Mumbai-based Accelyst Solutions Pvt. Ltd’s FreeCharge was founded in 2010 by Kunal Shah and sold to Snapdeal in April 2015 for $400 million.The news comes amid reports of Flipkart planning to acquire Snapdeal, which incurred losses of Rs 3,316 crore in 2015-16 on revenues of Rs 1,457 crore.FreeCharge’s investors include Sequoia Capital, Sofina ruNet, Tandon Group, Tybourne Capital Management and InnoVen Capital, according to start-up tracking firm Tracxn.Earlier, in April 2017, it was reported by news agency Bloomberg that FreeCharge could be merged with another rival Mobikwik in an all-cash deal.”The talks started last week as people from MobiKwik and Freecharge met to discuss a merger. This would make them one of the largest in the market. The Chinese investor is interested in putting in around $200 million in the merged entity as only a bigger player would be able to hold its own against Paytm,” the agency quoted a source as saying.Both the firms were valued at around $300 million each.Snapdeal is owned by Jasper Infotech Pvt. Ltd. and was co-founded in 2010 by Rohit Bansal and Kunal Bahl. The company has raised $1.78 billion to date.The most recent news about the company is that it issued preference shares worth Rs 113 crore to existing investors Nexus Venture Partners and the co-founders. The shares were issued at a premium of Rs 64,980 a piece, according to the Economic Times.Flipkart Internet, which owns the e-commerce portal Flipkart, incurred losses of Rs 2,306 crore on revenues of Rs 1,952 crore for 2015-16.

No gold looting takes place in Bangladesh Bank Quader

No gold looting takes place in Bangladesh Bank Quader

first_imgObaidul Quader. File PhotoRuling Bangladesh Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader on Wednesday claimed that gold was not looted from Bangladesh Bank vault.Also road transport and bridges minister, Quader criticised the main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party for making comment on the issue “without proper information and proofs”.”The opposition party has gone mad for getting issues [to cash in to do politics]. Without checking the veracity of the incident, the opposition commented that gold jewellery is looted from the Bangladesh Bank. But the fact is that no incident of gold looting took place,” said Quader while speaking at a meeting of the Roads and Highways sub-division on how to check traffic jam during the Eid-ul Azha.Quader’s claim came a few hours after opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir told a human chain in the capital that the country’s corruption level reached such a stage that the gold preserved in the vault of country’s central bank turns into mixed metal.An investigation by the customs intelligence earlier revealed that gold weighing almost 1,000 kilograms kept in Bangladesh Bank’s vault has been adulterated,The 22-carat gold has turned into 18-carat gold as other metals were mixed with it after the central bank received gold discs and rings over a period of time, investigators believe.The customs intelligence and investigation directorate of the National Board of Revenue dug out serious discrepancies in gold management, as the investigators examined 963 kg of gold out of huge quantity kept at the central bank’s vault, on the basis of random sampling.When his attention was drawn to the BNP’s allegation that the ruling party launched a crude bomb attack on an election rally of the opposition party in Rajshahi, the ruling party general secretary denied the allegation, saying that the ruling party has no rationale to launch such an attack because, what he said, it is in a better position in the electoral race in Rajshahi as is in other cities.“So, it doesn’t make sense that we’ll destroy election atmosphere by throwing crude bomb. Only those who fear defeat can launch such attack.”last_img read more

The streaming giant has ordered a U.K.-Swedish series based on the early life of Henning Mankell’s popular police inspector, who has already been already depicted on the small screen in the BBC “Wallander” series with Kenneth Branagh and a Swedish version with Krister Henriksson.Netflix has also ordered a new French original set during the French Revolution. The as-yet-untitled drama will follow Joseph Guillotin, the future inventor of the guillotine, who investigates a series of mysterious murders and discovers an unknown virus.“Young Wallander” will see the titular detective tackling his first-ever case. Netflix’s VP of international originals, Erik Barmack, announced the project Wednesday at C21’s Content London event. “We’re looking at Wallander when he was in his early 20s, before he became so jaded,” he said, noting that Mankell’s books had sold 50 million copies around the world in multiple languages. “When we talked to Berna [Levin] at Yellow Bird and saw the opportunity to work on a project like this, we got really excited.”Production starts on the serialized six-parter, which will be in English, in 2019.Levin, creative director at Banijay-owned Yellow Bird U.K., said that “getting to meet Wallander as a young man and explore how the times and his new experiences will shape him to eventually become the man we already know and love is a thrilling opportunity. We are confident he will captivate new audiences and delight longstanding fans once again with his sharp intelligence, youthful enthusiasm and unmistakable humanity.”Barmack also teased the new drama set during the French Revolution. The new series begins in 1787, two years before the revolution erupts. After Guillotin discovers the unknown virus, dubbed Blue Blood, the disease quickly spreads among the French aristocracy, driving them to murder ordinary people, and soon leads to a rebellion.The series was created by French novelist Aurélien Molas, who co-wrote the eight episodes with Gaia Guasti. The series is being produced by John Doe Productions for Netflix.“When we discussed the idea of revisiting France’s history through an epic and truly breathtaking series, the first question we had to ask ourselves was: Who would support us? Short answer – only Netflix for such a revolution!” said Molas and François Lardenois, the creator and producers of the series.In a statement, Barmack described Molas as “a very talented and innovative creator whom we are thrilled to be working with on our next French original series.” The series is due to start production in 2019.Netflix recently announced the launch of a fully staffed office in Paris and seven new French original series. Its slate of upcoming French shows include “Osmosis,” a romantic science-fiction series.center_img Popular on Variety last_img read more

An Interview with Jump Force Producer Koji Nakajima

first_img Simon Belmont, King K. Rool, and Dead Luigi Join Smash Bros. UltimateAn Interview With IO Interactive’s Sven Liebold About Hitman 2 Stay on target Bandai Namco has made a name for itself for (among other things) releasing video games based on popular anime and manga. One such upcoming title takes characters from across many different Japanese properties and brings them all together in one fighting game. Announced during the Xbox E3 briefing, Jump Force caught the attention of anime/manga fans in attendance and watching at home. Instead of purely being a game with a ton of anime characters, it distinguishes itself because of its setting: the real world. Clearly, this is not your typical anime crossover title.At E3, I got some hands-on time with the title. Truth be told, it was actually quite overwhelming. I’ve never been very good at Bandai Namco’s anime-based games, and Jump Force confused me as much as previous titles. There is a lot going on at once. It’s not always easy to understand exactly what’s happening. With that said, I appreciated how unique the game is. Seeing characters like Goku and Naruto battling Frieza and Sasuke in Times Square is something I could not have imagined. Despite not fully understanding the game, I could see this will be a title anime fans will love.After my hands-on session, I sat down with Jump Force producer Koji Nakajima. During our discussion, Nakajima informed me about various aspects of the game. This includes the character roster, the real-world setting, the accessibility of the controls, and more. After our talk, I got a better understanding of what the team is trying to convey. Even as a person who isn’t a fan of anime-based games, I can tell this one is special.This game has many different characters. How were you able to incorporate all of their signature techniques while making sure the overall game is balanced?Each character has very unique skills so it’s easy to think there’s a very extreme balance between the characters. We tried to keep the characters fairly balanced within a very basic working foundation. A Goku fan might be really happy he’s super powerful but another fan might be very dissatisfied about being overpowered by this character they may not like. We wanted to level the playing field in terms of enjoyment for everybody. We tried to design the characters within a basic framework and work our way up from there.Then we work on bringing out the uniqueness of the characters once we establish their basic foundation. We incorporate their special moves and we adjust their attributes. We design their actions and effects to distinguish characters from each other and make them stand on their own.Jump Force takes place in the real world, but it has anime characters with distinct art styles. How hard was it to balance the real and the imaginary?If we were to slap the characters into our world as is, they would look very plain. They would look very dull, like photoshopped renditions of the characters. We didn’t want that, obviously. The team made our own little arrangements to the characters, little details like their clothing for example. We thought about what kind of material they would use in the real world instead of just copying it from the manga.For example, Luffy from One Piece wears a vest. In the manga, it’s supposedly a cloth material. When we translated that into our game, it looked a little bit too plain as a cloth material. Instead, we changed it to make it look more like leather. We did that to give it a little bit more texture. It also gives it some shine under certain lighting conditions. This makes it fit a little bit better and is more compatible with our visual style.Since the game takes place in our world, how does that help it stand out from other manga-based games set in their own respective manga worlds?What we wanted to do is give players a real huge surprise and give the game a “wow” factor. This game is a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Shonen Jump series. We wanted to make it something epic.With previous crossover anime style games, we focused on recreating the anime world itself and incorporating it into the gameplay. That was the whole experience and that was the whole point of it. This time, the approach is to take the manga and anime worlds and insert them into our world. That was a completely new approach and something we wanted to challenge ourselves in doing with the 50th anniversary. I think this will produce a new and fresh experience for the users.What makes Jump Force different from other fighting games currently available on the market? How does it stand out beyond just being another anime-based game?We pushed Jump Force as an action fighting game but it’s not just about fighting. There’s a whole story behind it. We want the game to be a very immersive experience so users can really enjoy this sort of unique world we’ve created.For example, one of the stages is the Matterhorn from Sweden. You can see that Frieza’s spaceship crash-landed in that stage. It’s our real world but it also has some elements from the manga. That’s something that really stands out and differentiates it from other fighting games.Was there any collaboration with the original creators of the game’s characters?There’s actually no real direct collaboration with the original authors of the series and characters. However, Shueisha, the publisher of the Jump magazine, is involved in the development. We are in constant communication with Shueisha to make sure the characters retain their nature and that they are represented appropriately and accurately in this game.Is Jump Force a difficult game for novice players to play? How complex is the combat and how much do players need to learn before becoming competent?In terms of combat, we don’t require a lot of directional or command inputs. This game doesn’t demand a lot of technique or practice. It’s not like Dragon Ball FighterZ, Tekken, or Soulcalibur which requires players to sharpen their skills to attain a certain level of gameplay. We really tried to streamline the gameplay and make it as simple and accessible as possible.As far as the combat system and the level of complexity, it’s more comparable to something like Dragon Ball Xenoverse or Ultimate Ninja Storm. If we go a little further back, perhaps something like the Dragon Ball Budokai fighting game series. It is more along the lines of those series.Jump Force runs on PC and current-gen system. What do these platforms allow the developers to do that wasn’t possible during the last generation?The whole visual direction — the photorealistic depiction and portrayal of the game — wouldn’t have been possible with last generation hardware. We are using Unreal Engine 4 as a middleware. This really allowed us to reproduce what we had in our minds regarding the photorealism and the design direction of the visual style.I’m sure you can’t go into too much detail, but are there plans for post-launch content?Like you said, we can’t really go into too many details. This is the initial announcement so we can’t really comment on any specific DLC post-launch. However, our goal and mission for this game is that we want to make it an experience that is fun and engaging for everybody. Whether you’re on the casual spectrum or the hardcore spectrum, we want a very equal and enjoyable experience for everybody.We also want to promote longevity in the game. We want the users to play for a long period of time. To promote longevity, we are preparing various content, mechanics, and systems. As far as what they are, we will announce those in the coming days. Please stay tuned for future updates.Lastly, who is your favorite character in the game and why?It’s difficult to name and single out one character. It’s a little bit of a risky situation, so I’m not going to go there [laughs]. I will say one thing though. There is a character I really feel strongly about that did make it in this game. It might be something unusual, maybe a little bit unexpected, but it’s in there and it will be revealed shortly.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Google NSA received data through lowtech means

first_imgGoogle on Wednesday played down its role in a secret government surveillance program, detailing for the first time how it typically hands over data to federal officials.When faced with a court order, the tech giant said, it uses surprisingly simple and low-tech methods, including the delivery of information by hand or by using relatively common techniques to transfer files from one computer to another.“When required to comply with these requests, we deliver that information to the U.S. government — generally through secure FTP transfers and in person,” Google said in a statement.That could include putting data onto a disk or external hard drive, or printing out the requested information for a federal official, Google said. FTP, or file transfer protocol, is a popular method for exchanging information between servers with an extra layer of security.The company’s disclosure of how it handles National Security Agency requests might skirt its obligations to keep data requests secret, experts said. So far in public, the company has fiercely maintained that it has never heard of a secret NSA Internet surveillance program called PRISM, first revealed last week by The Washington Post and the Guardian newspaper.Those outlets reported on an NSA document that showed the agency has been tapping directly into the servers of nine major U.S. Internet companies in order to track foreign terrorism suspects.Immediately after PRISM was publicly reported, Google, Facebook, Yahoo, Microsoft and others denied giving the government “direct access” to their servers.Since then, The Post has reported that executives at some of the participating Silicon Valley companies, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, have acknowledged the program’s existence. According to a NSA inspector general’s report obtained by The Post, PRISM allowed “collection managers [to send] content tasking instructions directly to equipment installed at company-controlled locations” rather than directly to company servers.Cybersecurity experts said the news reports put Google and other tech companies in a difficult position because they might not be able to discuss dealings with the NSA.“I think that the tech companies want to assure the American people that they are playing a role blocking excessive demands for their information,” said Susan Freiwald, a professor of cyber-law and information privacy at the University of San Francisco.Google, Facebook, Microsoft and Yahoo this week called for the Justice Department to remove gag orders that prevent them from discussing orders under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. They fear that the secrecy of their involvement in government surveillance requests leads the public to imagine the worst, said Freiwald.Revelations about Google’s participation are particularly bruising for a firm that has been touted for protecting users’ data.On Wednesday, Google elaborated on what it is not allowing the government to do.It says it does not allow the NSA to collect information through a secure portal nor does it put information into a “drop box” for government agents to access. It said it has a team of employees who review every FISA order.“The US government does not have the ability to pull that data directly from our servers or network,” the Google statement said.Some technology law experts scoffed at Google’s claims of delivering information by hand. While the government seems to employ various ways of obtaining data, it appears to seek a large amount of information in a format that is searchable, which suggests that its collection from Google, Facebook and others is vast, these experts said.Officials and former staffers at the tech companies said it would be difficult for the government to place equipment on their servers or directly access them in secret. Too many engineers would know, they say.“There is obviously a big disconnect between how the NSA is marketing this capability internally and how different companies respond,” said Alan Davidson, a former director of public policy at Google. “Less secrecy would help everyone.”© 2013, The Washington Post Facebook Comments No related posts.last_img read more

the Communist Party of India Prakash Karat Related News The organisational plenum held by the CPM in Kolkata focused on the organisational steps to be taken to build up the independent strength of the party and to expand its mass base The plenum was a follow up to the 21st congress of the party held in April 2015 The congress which is the party’s highest policymaking body had set out a political line that emphasised the importance of expanding the strength of the party in order to forge a real political alternative — a left and democratic front The CPM which is the largest left party in the country had suffered electoral setbacks particularly in West Bengal and failed to register any worthwhile advance at the all-India level in terms of mass support It was in order to rectify this failure that the party organisation was subjected to a critical examination at the plenum The political challenges before the CPM were spelt out in the party congress There has been a rightward shift in the country’s polity With the advent of the Modi government a rightwing offensive has been unfolding through the aggressive pursuit of neoliberal economic policies and the onslaught of communal forces Fighting this twin offensive projecting a left and democratic alternative platform and building popular movements and struggles were the tasks set out The plenum therefore had to devise ways to revamp the organisational set-up and streamline structures at all levels of the party One of the key themes was how to improve the quality of the party membership in political ideological and organisational terms For the CPM party members and cadres are the backbone of the organisation They have to be politically conscious dedicated and self-sacrificing The plenum broke new ground in insisting that quality can be enhanced only if the social composition apart from the class composition of the membership improves Thus for the first time a decision was taken to set a target for recruiting more women members At present 155 per cent of members are women This is to be increased to 25 per cent in three years The other way of improving quality is to ensure that cadres from the working class poor peasants and agricultural workers get promoted into the leading committees of the party Along with this a planned effort has to be made to promote cadres from Dalit Adivasi and other socially oppressed sections There is no dearth of Dalit members — 203 per cent of the total membership — but their numbers in the middle and higher committees are comparatively low So promoting cadres from socially disadvantaged sections needs conscious planning The CPM and the Left in general have fallen behind somewhat due to changes that have occurred in socio-economic conditions after more than two decades of liberalisation and globalisation Two constituencies where the Left had a traditional appeal — the middle classes and the youth — have been most affected by these changes In the pre-liberalisation era the Left had an appeal for both the middle classes and young people There is a decline in that appeal This is due to two reasons First there is a differentiation within the middle classes with an upper stratum having high incomes and a lifestyle closer to that of the affluent sections of society They see benefits in neoliberal capitalism and can no longer relate to the Left programme Second the problems and concerns of the other strata of the middle classes have undergone changes which have not been properly addressed by the Left The Left organisations are still stuck with the old issues and have not innovated in ways to reach out to them and take their concerns on board In the case of the youth the Left has to reorient its policies and programmes making the concerns and aspirations of the young a central focus Where it has done so it has succeeded but by and large this is an area of neglect The plenum dealt with both these issues of work among the middle classes and the youth Concrete measures have been suggested to step up work among the urban middle classes The party’s youthful component — the number of members below 31 years of age — is hovering just below 20 per cent and guidelines were drawn up to recruit more young men and women and to promote younger cadres at all levels of the party A key slogan that emerged from the plenum is to adopt the mass line to establish live links with the people Mass contact with the people has increasingly become confined to times of elections and when election campaigns are conducted The old communist style of always being with the people learning from the people and then going to the people with the prescriptions for dealing with their problems has to be restored The quality of the party can improve only when there is vibrant inner-party democracy in place This is important not only for the CPM but for the party-based parliamentary democratic system itself Neoliberal politics has further stifled democracy which was already getting narrowed within parties Many parties have a leader-centric organisation or have become family enterprises There is a widespread perception that the communist party is disciplined but not democratic as far as its internal organisation is concerned Actually the CPM which practices democratic centralism has a better record of inner-party democracy The plenum pinpointed certain trends that adversely affect inner-party democracy and suggested steps to remove these defects There is a common misconception that combating communalism means defeating the BJP in elections The electoral struggle alone cannot weaken and isolate communal forces The RSS and its various front organisations are working constantly amongst various sections of society Electoral defeats do not necessarily weaken the influence of communal ideology It is important to wage the battle of ideas to counter Hindutva forces and other brands of communalism As a consistent force against communalism the CPM has to have an organisation capable of conducting ideological struggle among the people The plenum therefore discussed ways to mobilise intellectual and cultural resources for a broad platform against communalism and to step up interventions in the social cultural and educational spheres to inculcate and strengthen secular democratic values The success the CPM has in implementing the organisational tasks set out in the plenum will determine the advance towards building a viable left and democratic alternative in the country The writer is former general secretary of the CPM For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Reuters | Updated: September 20 2017 12:56 pm Jonny Bairstow scored maiden ODI hundred (Source: AP) Related News An unbeaten century from Jonny Bairstow helped England stroll to a seven-wicket victory over West Indies in the opening match of their one-day series at Old Trafford on Tuesday With England set a modest target of 205 in a match reduced to 42 overs per side because of a weather-delayed start the outcome was never in doubt and the main question was if Bairstow had time to reach three figures for the first time in ODIs having made three test centuries The 27-year-old Bairstow got there in the 31st over when he made three runs and a few balls later Ben Stokes sealed victory by launching Ashley Nurse over the boundary rope for six “It’s been a long time coming I made by debut so long ago It’s been a rollercoaster in ODIs but hopefully it’s a stepping block for things to come” Bairstow who has struggled to nail down a place in England’s one-day side said “I opened for Yorkshire at the start of the year and it’s gone from there I like to hope my game lends itself to the middle order and to opening Wherever the captain wants me to bat I like to think that I’m adaptable” West Indies’ defeat means they will have to go through the qualifying progress for the 2019 World Cup They made a fast start to their innings with Chris Gayle dropped by Joe Root in the first over thumping three huge sixes as the visitors reached 45 without loss after five overs Gayle reached 34 after four overs but Root made amends when he sprinted full steam to catch him on the boundary for 37 Shai Hope (35) Marlon Samuels (17) and Jason Mohammed (18) all made confident starts but wickets fell at regular intervals with Stokes the main dangerman Hope was superbly caught one-handed by man-of-the-match Bairstow on the mid-wicket boundary off the bowling of Stokes who finished with figures of three for 43 After West Indies’ innings became bogged down Jason Holder’s 41 not out helped them past the 200-mark but it never looked like being enough to stop the hosts claiming victory England’s Alex Hales was caught off the bowling of Jerome Taylor for 19 but Root joined Bairstow for a second-wicket stand of 125 before Root was bowled by Kesrick Williams for 54 Williams also removed captain Eoin Morgan for 10 but Stokes joined Bairstow as England cantered home under the lights The second match is at Trent Bridge on Thursday For all the latest Sports News download
