The ongoing crisis in Sudan has once again forced me to marvel at the essence of Rabindranath Tagore’s quote, “Patriotism cannot be our final spiritual shelter; my refuge is humanity. I will not buy glass for the price of diamonds, and I will never allow patriotism to triumph over humanity as long as I live.”The military took over power in Sudan after ousting the then president, Omar al-Bashir, in April 2019 after months of mass rallies. Thus began another tempestuous, downhill journey for Sudan.In the early hours of June 3, 2019, and after nearly five months of protest, the Sudanese security forces had moved to break up a protest camp outside the army’s headquarters in Khartoum using live ammunition and tear gas. Similar coordinated crackdowns had occurred at sit-ins in other cities of the country. According to the Central Committee of Sudanese Doctors, by the end of the operation, at least 100 people had been killed, many brutally beaten and injured, and some were also raped. Dead bodies and some of the wounded were thrown in the Nile River. The Transitional Military Council (TMC) had disputed these numbers, putting the death toll at 40 while saying nothing about the alleged sexual assault. Residents had reported that heavily armed paramilitaries from the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) had been patrolling parts of Khartoum while the regular army had been deployed in some parts of Omdurman.Using the word “hell” for Sudan’s present situation would be a terrible understatement. Yet, this hell has failed to wrench people’s hearts; failed to harbour a few tears. It is appalling how even the most paltry activities of celebrities around the world secure the headlines of innumerable news channels, but this gruesome act by the RSF, that has marred humanity forever, probably needs to debase much more to be rewarded with the same gravity.Also, I somehow feel compelled to compare the scenarios during terrorist attacks on India and the present scenario in Sudan. For instance, I witnessed anti-Pakistan slogans in my locality after the Pulwama attack, but I don’t see “anti-savagery” or “anti-violence” slogans anywhere. If something evil happens within our own country (be it any country in the world), it tears our soul apart and leaves us drenched in anger and vexation. But when something of a similar sort happens in some other country, it fails to create the same impact.Why? Is terrorism different when it happens in any other country? Is cruelty not as cruel when it happens to people of a dissimilar nationality? Our outlook on terrorism has become somewhat objective in nature. There are incessant reminders of us being Indians (or of any nationality, for that matter). But aren’t we humans first? It horrifies us when there is a terrorist attack in our country, but not when some other country is stricken with terrorism. We are nationalist enough when we stand together and sing the national anthem in one voice; but are we human enough to stand together and feel for people at an international level, such that our hearts beat in one rhythm?

Bangladesh is really a large city, and rail-based mass transport will be a necessity. But how should the railway develop its role when it has lost almost all its traffic to road?,David Burns is a railway industrial engineering consultant with 40 years of experience in promoting the development of railways all over the world. He is also a frequent contributor to Railway Gazette International.Bangladesh is a small, poor, densely-populated country. The population is 152 million, and could reach 250 million by 2050. The railway comprises two remnants of the colonial rail network for the most part unchanged since the British left 60 years ago. Bangladesh Railways is a shadow of its former self, with just 4% market shares for both passenger and freight. The country is essentially a large city, and needs effective mass transport, but the railway must overcome major obstacles if it is to be an active service provider in the future.A good road system is critical to the initial development of a country, and various aid agencies have helped to create a network of roads in Bangladesh. Today, in about 90% of the rural areas, the average distance to a road is only 5 km. The private bus industry has taken advantage of this, and now accounts for 88% of all passenger-km travelled. On the country’s primary route between Dhaka and Chittagong there are five trains and about 1 500 buses each way per day. The bus and truck companies have very powerful lobbying associations. So, there is almost insurmountable competition for the railway.The rapidly-expanding metropolitan Dhaka area is about half the size of ?Tokyo, which is served by 73 commuter and metro lines. Dhaka has just two under-utilised railways. Given the forecast growth in personal income, by 2025 there could be 24 million cars in Bangladesh and four times that number by 2050.The country has almost no minerals (ballast is imported from India) and a limited manufacturing industry. Its 5 000 garment factories are not oriented for rail freight. The country does not have long distances or much in the way of volume transport – the usual basis for successful rail freight operations. So, emphasis has been on the lorry. The country’s primary resource is people. It will be the low-cost manufacturing centre of the future, and it could even become the low-cost labour source for India. BR management has been living in almost total isolation (a subscription to Railway Gazette International costs the monthly salary of a senior manager) and suffers from archaic civil service recruitment and promotion rules – it takes two years to hire an engineer. Salaries are so low that the primary emphasis is on survival until mandatory retirement at 57. Technical problems are numerous, and some are unique. For example many routes have to be built on embankments as high as 10 m because of annual flooding of the adjacent rice paddy fields.Bilateral and multilateral aid agencies have provided funds, and an unending stream of consultants has tried to promote reform and development of the railways. Indeed, the railway offices contain literally piles of reports that may have been looked at, but the recommendations they contain have seldom, if ever, been implemented. The future for rail freight is clearly international trade with India, but BR’s share of the revenue will be small because of the short distance within the country. Bangladesh is surrounded by India, so transit traffic is a prime opportunity. This could double BR’s current revenue and support development, but it took 43 years to restart the international passenger service (p274). To avoid paving over the country for more roads, the railway needs to aim for a 30% share of the passenger market; this could be unachievable without ?major restrictions on road usage. It should be noted that the French and German railways have, nationally, about a 9% passenger market share even with, until recently, a ban on inter-city buses.The transport problems of Bangladesh can clearly be predicted – it’s only a matter of timing. The solution is not incremental investment to solve short-term problems, but a comprehensive, forward-thinking master plan. This also requires the development of a railway organisation that has the training and incentives to move ahead – not more foreign consultants writing yet more reports. Resurrecting BR so that it can play a major role in the country’s future may seem like mission impossible, given the entrenched bus industry and the short freight distances, but it could be a ?massive and meaningful challenge. ‘The solution is not incremental investment to solve short-term problems, but a comprehensive, forward-thinking master plan’

MLB generally are more classical, traditional with a lot of letters. The NFL seems to have more bold and aggressive logos than any other leagues, with some kind of face to it. The NBA tends to go with a lot of elements in their primary logos with the city name, nickname and a basketball. The NHL rolls out logos that are more graphical and fairly neutral compared to the NFL. Which league do you think is the most consistent with their teams’ logos, from top to bottom? Every league will have a best and a worst logo because someone HAS to be at the top and the bottom. But which league has the “best” worst logo and which one has the “worst” best logo? Obviously, I am biased because I’m a baseball fan, so I think MLB has the best logos across the league because their logos seems to be more traditional and clean than any other sports. You don’t see a lot of crazy pipings on their uniforms like in other sports (NFL – Seahawks, NBA – Mavericks, NHL – Panthers. Just using these teams as examples). Most of the time, MLB’s pipings tends to be minimal and not so distracting, or there’s pinstripes. Just thought this would spark a good discussion. Doesn’t have to include the Big 4 sports. Feel free to include other leagues at any level from anywhere!

Every team must have a script in their primary, a basketball in one if their logos, and more often than not, a roundel is found in their identity. Based on uniforms, I’d say MLB. Cap logo is usually a letter/interlocking letters, home whites, road grays, not a ton of striping, while Too much/too thick looks bad.

Photo/Kevin Sielaff By Steve GunnLocalSportsJournal.comMUSKEGON – If nothing else, the Muskegon Big Reds demonstrated on Saturday that they could adjust and defend against a deadly passing attack and give themselves an opportunity to win.But two missed opportunities in the fourth quarter cost them the chance to nail down a victory, and they fell 38-35 to the Stevenson Patriots, a Chicago-area power, in a big-play thriller in their home opener at Hackley Stadium.The Big Reds led Stevenson 35-31 midway through the fourth quarter, and the visiting Patriots had the ball, fourth-and-goal, at the Muskegon 14-yard line.Stevenson quarterback Aldan O’Connell lofted a pass to the corner of the end zone, but Muskegon defender Da’Monte Neal outjumped the receiver and came down with the interception, preserving the Big Red lead.A few first downs on the ensuing drive would probably have sealed the victory, but the Big Reds failed to move the ball and had to punt. Stevenson then drove 51 yards in eight plays and scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 9-yard run by Matt Korinek with 57 seconds remaining.The Big Reds weren’t done. They drove from their own 46 to the Patriot 9-yard line with six seconds remaining, and could have tied the game and sent it to overtime with a field goal.Andrew Ward receives a hand-off and looks for a hole in Stevenson’s defense. Photo/Kevin SielaffBut the attempt sailed wide to the right, allowing Stevenson to escape with the win.Muskegon Coach Shane Fairfield was disappointed with the loss, but said his team learned a lot of valuable lessons against an excellent opponent from Illinois.He said the experience was far more valuable than an off day, which would have occurred if the Big Reds hadn’t agreed to play an out-of-state team in Week 2. He also said it was much more valuable than last week’s easy victory over Ann Arbor Pioneer.“Now our kids have experienced the moment and know what to expect in a game like this,” Fairfield said. “Our kids played their hearts out. That’s what high school football should be like every weekend. I told the kids in the locker room, when we were down by three at halftime, that this is good high school football.“Last week was no fun. This was fun. How many learning moments did we have last week? We didn’t learn anything about ourselves and have opportunities to learn and grow. This was like playoff football.”Muskegon looked like a sure bet to win the game in the early going.Andrew Ward (9) is tripped up, but he manages to finish a tackle in the air. Photo/Kevin SielaffThey used a series of big plays to jump out to leads of 14-0 and 21-7 by the end of the first quarter.Quarterback Kalil Pimpleton started the scoring with a 40-yard touchdown run with about seven minutes left in the first quarter. They added another score about four minutes later when Da’Vion McCall hauled in a 35-yard touchdown pass from Pimpleton.Stevenson got on the board about a minute later when O’Connell threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to Henry Marchese, making the score 14-7.Muskegon went up 21-7 when Pimpleton, moving in and out of the quarterback position, took a handoff from backup QB La’darius Jefferson and broke through the middle for a 38-yard touchdown run.That’s when O’Connell, Stevenson’s 6-4, 175-pound senior quarterback, got very hot.He started to pick apart the Big Red secondary with several dozen completions, and threw touchdown passes of 8, 21 and 16 yards before halftime. By intermission he had completed 25 of 32 throws for 275 yards.Billie Roberts (35) moves in on Stevenson’s QB. Photo/Kevin SielaffO’Connell finished the game 36-for-51 through the air for 381 yards.Muskegon had one second-quarter touchdown, a 53-yard scoring strike from Pimpleton to Kevin Reynolds, to take a 28-21 lead.But O’Connell threw the last of his TD passes, a 16-yarder to Marchese, to tie the score 28-28. Then Stevenson kicked an 18-yard field goal to grab a 31-28 halftime lead.“We were sending six and seven (rushing the quarterback) and the kids never got any pressure on him,” Fairfield said. “I have no idea why. Normally we get to people and harass quarterbacks. Congratulations to them, however they did it. That was incredible. We were sending one more than they could block and we couldn’t get the quarterback out of the pocket.”The Big Reds adjusted to the Patriots’ air assault in the second half by putting more players in pass coverage. They picked off two passes and held Stevenson to a single touchdown.But the Big Reds were also hurt by turnovers in the final two quarters.Muskegon started the half by driving to the Stevenson 31, before losing the ball on a fumble. The Patriots then drove to the Big Red 5-yard line, before Muskegon’s Jacorey Sullivan intercepted a pass near the goal line to end the threat.Kalil Pimpleton (3) hands the ball off to Andrew Ward (9). Photo/Kevin SielaffThe Big Reds drove back down to the Stevenson 19, before losing the ball on another fumble. After a Stevenson punt, Muskegon scored on a 47-yard touchdown pass from Pimpleton to Raquis McDonald to take a 35-31 lead with 11:52 left in the fourth quarter.Stevenson then took the kickoff and went on a sustained 12-play drive that took more than five minutes off the clock.Muskegon looked like it had dodged the bullet when Neal picked off the potential go-head pass in the end zone. But the Big Reds ran only four plays on their next series, failed to move the chains, and had to punt.That allowed Stevenson to drive from its own 49-yard line and score the winning touchdown with only 57 seconds left.“I like it that we gave ourselves a chance at the end to win it and tie it,” Fairfield said. “We had a chance.”Pimpleton had another great game for Muskegon, passing for 176 yards and rushing for 126. Neal led the Big Red defense with eight tackles while Sullivan and Andrew Ward had seven apiece. Billie Roberts (35) moves in on Stevenson’s QB.

A comprehensive all-round performance from Junior Sinclair ensured Berbice defeat Essequibo by six wickets in the first round of the Hand-In-Hand Inter-County Under-19 50-overs tournament at the Albion Sports Complex ground yesterday. After play was delayed by 20 minutes due to a light shower, Inter-County cricket returned to the Ancient County after a 13-year hiatus with Essequibo winning the toss and electing to bat first.Essequibo struggled to construct partnerships and they were eventually rolled over for 123 in 42.4 overs.In reply, the defending champions reached 124-4 in 24.5 overs. Essequibo were kept in check with the regular loss of wickets due to tight spin bowling. Left-arm spinner, Nigel Deodat was the pick of the bowlers taking 2-16. He was supported by off-spinner, Junior Sinclair with 2-22.Berbice were relaxed in the field, dropping three catches but nevertheless the outcome was never in doubt.Orlando Jailall looked solid with his top score of 37. He stroked two boundaries in his 73-ball innings but was run out on a free hit after Azim Mohammed tapped a low full toss directly to Seon Glasgow at point, who returned a safe throw to send Jailall on his way. Apart from Jailall, Ameer Singh, who was dropped on five and retired not out on 13, returned at the fall of Jailall’s wicket to eventually construct a 16-run innings before a shimmy down the wicket saw his stumps being split by Glasgow while Mahesh Ramnarine, on debut looked the part with an important 35-ball 16.In the chase, Essequibo had their tails up with Alex Algoo (07) feathering a faint edge off of Romario Stephen to the wicket-keeper while Glasgow was bowled for a three-ball duck to see them going to lunch on 35-2.However, player of the match, Sinclair, returned to blister a match defining 58. Sinclair dominated the bowling, taking a liking to Elian Whyte who was smashed for a six off a free hit over long on. His second six was pulled into mid-wicket to complement his four fours. Sinclair’s 74-ball innings was contrastingly ended with a soft catch at cover.Sinclair was supported by Kevlon Anderson with a 36-ball 28, consisting of four fours and the pair shared a 71-run partnership before Anderson was caught at point.Garfield Benjamin took charge with a quick-fire unbeaten 17 laced with two boundaries to seal the game.
