Cowboys tight end Jason Witten plans to retire after 15 seasons and join ESPN as its lead analyst for the “Monday Night Football” broadcast, the network reported Friday, April 27, 2018. (AP Photo/File) center_img FRISCO, Texas – Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten plans to retire after 15 seasons and join ESPN as its lead analyst for the “Monday Night Football” telecast, the network reported Friday.Witten met with owner and general manager Jerry Jones, who said no announcement was coming Friday. Jones said he had several conversations with Witten this week and indicated the franchise leader in games, catches and yards receiving hadn’t made a final decision.“He has some things to think about and discuss with his family from a professional perspective,” Jones said before the introductory news conference for first-round pick Leighton Vander Esch.“He also told me those things are going to require a few more days of consideration, at least through the weekend. He has not made any decisions that are definite at this time.”Jones said the Cowboys would have no other comment on Witten’s future the rest of the weekend, which includes the last two days of the NFL draft on Friday and Saturday.The news on the second day of the draft could affect Dallas’ plans just a week after Witten suggested he might play until he was 40 and intended to return this coming season. Witten turns 36 early next month.If Witten leaves Dallas, it’s the second straight year that a Cowboys star is retiring to go into broadcasting. Former quarterback Tony Romo became the lead analyst for CBS last season.Witten is also the franchise leader in consecutive games, starts and consecutive starts. The 10-time Pro Bowler will finish tied with defensive end Ed “Too Tall” Jones, safety Bill Bates and late offensive lineman Mark Tuinei for most seasons in franchise history.The decision by Witten also would mean the Cowboys have lost two of their top three players in career touchdown catches this month. The club released receiver Dez Bryant, the club leader with 73 TD grabs, in a cost-cutting move. Witten is third with 68, three behind Hall of Famer Bob Hayes.A third-round pick out of Tennessee in 2003, Witten had 1,152 catches for 12,448 yards. He and Tony Gonzalez are the only tight ends with at least 1,000 catches and 10,000 yards.But stats and flash never really defined Witten, always praised by coach Jason Garrett as the best two-way tight end in the NFL because of his blocking ability.Even though he was still active, the team paid tribute to him in its new practice facility with a huge picture of Witten running down the field against Philadelphia in 2007 without his helmet, which was knocked off on a hit as he stayed on his feet and kept going for almost 30 yards.The decision by Witten would mean the lead analyst job at all three networks will be held by former players who spent their entire careers with the Cowboys. The other is Fox’s Troy Aikman, who won three Super Bowls as quarterback in the 1990s.Witten and Romo spent 14 seasons together, but never got the Cowboys to the NFC championship game. Dallas won two wild-card games with them, but lost both times in the divisional round.___More AP NFL: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_NFLlast_img read more

NEW YORK, N.Y. – Cellular companies such as Verizon are looking to challenge traditional cable companies with residential internet service that promises to be ultra-fast, affordable and wireless.Using an emerging wireless technology known as 5G, Verizon’s 5G Home service provides an alternative to cable for connecting laptops, phones, TVs and other devices over Wi-Fi. It launches in four U.S. cities on Monday.Verizon won’t be matching cable companies on packages that also come with TV channels and home phone service. But fewer people have been subscribing to such bundles anyway, as they embrace streaming services such as Netflix for video and cellphone services instead of landline.“That’s the trend that cable has been having problems with for several years, and a trend that phone companies can take advantage of,” Gartner analyst Bill Menezes said.That’s if the wireless companies can offer a service that proves affordable and effective.T-Mobile and Sprint are also planning a residential 5G service as part of their merger proposal, though few details are known.Verizon’s broadband-only service will cost $70 a month, with a $20 discount for Verizon cellular customers. According to Leichtman Research Group, the average price for broadband internet is about $60, meaning only some customers will be saving money.Even so, Verizon can try to win over some customers with promises of reliability.Verizon says its service will be much faster than cable. That means downloading a two-hour movie in high definition in two minutes rather than 21. The service promises to let families play data-intensive games and watch video on multiple devices at once, with little or no lag.“The things that really matter to a customer are how fast it is and how reliable it is,” longtime telecom analyst Dave Burstein said. In tests of Verizon’s 5G so far, he said, “reliability is proving out quite nicely.”Verizon could also capitalize on many people’s frustration with their cable companies. Consumer Reports magazine says customers have long been unhappy with perceived weak customer service, high prices and hidden fees.The residential 5G service is part of a broader upgrade in wireless technology.Verizon has spent billions of dollars for rights to previously unused radio waves at the high end of the frequency spectrum. It’s a short-range signal, ideal for city blocks and apartment buildings, but less so for sprawling suburbs or rural communities. That’s why Verizon is pushing residential service first, while AT&T is building a more traditional cellular network for people on the go, using radio waves at the lower end.AT&T is aiming to launch its 5G mobile network this year in 12 cities, including Atlanta and Charlotte, North Carolina. Dish also has plans for a 5G network, but it’s focused on connecting the so-called “Internet of Things,” everything from laundry machines to parking meters, rather than cellphones or residential broadband.Sprint tried to introduce residential wireless service before, using a technology called WiMax, but it failed to gain many subscribers as LTE trumped WiMax as the dominant cellular technology. This time, Verizon is using the same 5G technology that will eventually make its way into 5G cellular networks.The Verizon service will start in parts of Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, and Sacramento, California.“These are small areas but significant,” said Ronan Dunne, president of Verizon Wireless. “Tens of thousands of homes, not hundreds of thousands of homes.” Eventually, Verizon projects 30 million homes in the U.S. will be eligible, though there’s no timeline.For now, Verizon isn’t planning to hit markets where it already has its cable-like Fios service. Verizon stopped expanding Fios around 2010, in part because it was expensive to dig up streets and lay fiber-optic lines. Verizon can build 5G more cheaply because it can use the same towers available for cellular service.That said, Verizon might not recoup its costs if it ends up drawing only customers who stand to save money over cable, said John Horrigan, a broadband expert at the Technology Policy Institute.And while Verizon says the new network will be able to handle lots of devices at once, anyone who’s tried to use a phone during concerts and conferences will know that the airwaves can get congested quickly.What Verizon’s service won’t do is extend high-speed internet access to rural America, where many households can’t get broadband at all, let alone competition. Cable and other companies haven’t found it profitable to extend wires to remote parts of the country. But Verizon will face the same problem, given that its short-range signal will require several wireless towers closer together. That’s feasible only in densely populated areas.That’s not good enough, said Harold Feld, senior vice-president of the advocacy group Public Knowledge. He said internet service at reasonable prices is “fundamental” for all Americans — not just those who live in populated areas.T-Mobile and Sprint want to jointly create a 5G network that would also offer residential wireless broadband, but not for a few years. In seeking regulatory approval, the companies say 20 per cent to 25 per cent of subscribers will be in rural areas that have limited access to broadband. But the companies offered no details on how they would do so. T-Mobile and Sprint declined to comment.___This story has been corrected with the correct spelling of Gartner analyst Bill Menezes name.last_img read more

network of madrassas and schools conforming to the syllabi of the Uttar Pradesh Madrassa Education Board in villages around Mubarakpur They have pockets of Muslims in the region following them precisely on the basis of doctrinal consideration In future these pockets will become communities much like Shias and Sunnis became cultural communities Much like political differences for control of power after Prophet Mohammad’s death transformed into differences of religious nature thereby creating the Sunni and Shia sects all the current doctrinal sects are also creating practices in the life of Muslims Such differences cover the following: Into which sect it is right to marry in what manner to offer prayers should leaders of other sects be allowed to speak in a certain mosque how many times to offer prayers and whether to accept the practice of taqleed Among Shia Muslims a new sect called Akhbari Muslims has emerged in recent years which is not following any Shia juristic headquarters (marja) — the two centres now led by Ayatollah Sistani in Iraq and Ayatollah Khamenei in Iran Mufti Nizamuddin the principal of Jamiatul Ashrafia which leads Barelvi Islam the most dominant sect in Mubarakpur Firstpost/Tufail Ahmed I met Mufti Nizamuddin the principal of Jamiatul Ashrafia which has more than 11000 students including 1600 in its hostels and asked him to comment on a Hadith as per which Prophet Mohammad said "Do not teach women to write" This is a major issue because some Barelvi clerics continue to propagate that women should not be taught writing Mufti Nizamuddin said the Hadith does exist but in Islam there are two types of prohibitions: One is haram as per which a certain act is "strictly forbidden" and the other is something that is "not wanted" and therefore one can adopt a stand as per the demands of changing times "Today a big section of the Muslim Ummah accepts that women can write and they (Islamic scholars) have also established numerous madrassas for women" he explained Asked if a Muslim woman can pilot a plane he said there’s "nothing illegitimate there is no ban" if she adheres to the etiquette of lifestyle as per Shariah I conclude from my conversations on similar topics that many Islamic clerics for example those at Madrassa Baitul Uloom in the nearby town of Saraimeer do think that roles of a driver pilot or soldier are allowed for women within the bounds of Shariah Such clerics also approve of these roles but their presumption is that the Shariah’s boundaries are extremely difficult to follow for Muslim women in modern times and therefore questions on these subjects are basically irrelevant Therefore I am left with the feeling that the same clerics would not permit roles like pilot and soldier to Muslim women Jamia Arabia Ehyayul Uloom a Deobandi madrassa established in 1899 has now moved to a new location on the outskirts of Mubarakpur Firstpost/Tufail Ahmed Common Muslims are taught to follow thetaqleed of one of the four schools of jurisprudence Is it necessary for a Muslim to follow taqleed Mufti Nizamuddin responds: "The Quran has ordered that in case there is no information about a certain issue neither the Quran nor Hadiths have clear orders about it one should trust the advice of experts of Islamic law" The mufti (someone who delivers fatwas) gave the example that if you go to a heart specialist you follow his advice; and similarly in the religious world one must follow the advice of an Islamic jurist Reminded that the principle of taqleed is leading to conflicts between two groups of dargahs (shrines) of the Barelvi sect itself in Bareilly he added: "The principle of taqleed is not based on duniyavi ranjish (worldly animosity) or some baseless difference" During the interview Mufti Nizamuddin took care of every word he spoke so as not to hurt the sentiments of any sect in Mubarakpur or elsewhere But my conversations with Islamic clerics in the town indicate that at jalsas (religious congregations) of each sect words and sentences are indeed spoken that cause heartburn to the other sect Maulana Abdul Wafi Qasmi the vice-chancellor of the Jamia Arabia Ehyayul Uloom which was established in 1899 said: "Sometimes they say some sentences against us and we are forced to organise a jalsa to respond (to give counter arguments)" Qasmi who declined to be photographed for religious reasons noted some of the major differences saying that the Barelvi sect believes that the prophet was alim-ul-ghaib (one who knew everything) builds concrete graves allows music at mazars (shrines) and so on Madrasa Babul Ilm a mosque of Shia Muslims in Mubarakpur Firstpost/Tufail Ahmed Both Barelvis and Deobandis accuse Ahle Hadith sect of being ghair muqallid So I met Maulana Ateequr Rahman who is a leading scholar at the Madrasa Al-Arabia Darul Taleem established in 1906 He too refused to be photographed for religious reasons Although his madrassa belongs to the Ahle Hadith sect Rahman noted that the textbooks are the same which are taught in Barelvi and Deobandi madrassas "Our main basis are the Quran and Hadiths And those who ‘also’ accept fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence) get divided into maslaks (doctrinal sects)" Rahman said adding: "The four leading jurists themselves used to accept Allah and the prophet (ie the Quran and Hadiths)" By his argument these four leading jurists too were ghair muqallid those who did not follow any imam but the Quran and the Hadiths The principle of taqleed has caused divisions among Muslims "Due to the principle of taqleed doctrinal differences are growing There is groupism Muslims and the Islamic scholars get divided The biggest obstacle in the unity of Muslims is taqleed" Rahman said I asked him to respond to a new argument forwarded by the Barelvis that their followers should follow among the Barelvi families only He asked "When it is permitted for Muslims to marry Ahle Kitab (people of the book such as the Bible and Torah) how come a Muslim cannot marry a Muslim (of non-Barelvi sect)" His position is not entirely that of the European Enlightenment Asked if the Sunnis should marry with men and women of Shia Muslims Rahman observed: "We cannot marry into Shias But we can marry into Barelvis Deobandis and others" I left with the view that both Barelvis and the Ahle Hadith do not accept Shias as Muslims Madrasa Al-Arabia Darul Taleem an educational institution established in 1906 in Mubarakpur and run by the Ahle Hadith sects who reject doctrinal divisions in Islamic jurisprudence Firstpost/Tufail Ahmed Ali Imam the former president of the Madrasa Babul Ilm of the Shia sect reflects on the doctrinal divisions in Mubarakpur "The Muslims of Mubarakpur are lagging politically They are into politics but are divided into groups Collectively they do not consider any one as their leader" he says and for an example notes that although the Barelvis like the Deobandis follow Imam Abu Hanifa "the founder of the Barelvi school Ala Hazrat Ahmad Raza Khan has become larger than Abu Hanifa himself" Unfortunately each sect is fighting for the purer form of Islam and considers the other sects as dangerous to Islam itself Sometime ago I was told by Naila Inayat the USA Today correspondent based in Lahore "Here in Pakistan Muslims are 98 percent but for them Islam is still in danger" In the long run Mubarakpur too is on the same path of Pakistan Part One: Separatism and integration among Muslims in the time of Uttar Pradesh elections Part Two: Secularism versus communalism at election time Part Three: Is rise of religiosity on AMU campus a precursor to another ‘Partition’ Part Four: Should taxpayers be funding AMU’s imams muezzins theology department Part Five: How bridging

safari in Tadoba Tiger Reserve on Sunday Maharashtra Government Related News In a bold alternative approach to wildlife tourism Maharashtra on Sunday turned ownership of wildlife back to the people with Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis at a programme in Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve (TATR) rolling out a community-based Nature Conservancy (CNC) that encourages people owning land alongside government-owned parks and reserves to pool their land parcels together for hosting and protecting wildlife population and earning a regular income from it With this announcement Maharashtra becomes country’s first state to adopt the ‘conservancy’ concept for wildlife tourism that has had a profound impact on economy and tourism in Masaimara and Serengeti in Africa The programme envisages involvement of communities around national parks and sanctuaries in re-wilding of farmlands rendered uneconomic due to various factors such as crop depredation by wildlife limited space less agriculture yield human encroachment in forests increased conflict injuries and loss of life Share This Article Related Article It also aims to involve private enterprises to invest in the areas to help communities develop the CNC into a remunerative source of alternative income The first such project is coming up at Gothangaon a village in Nagpur district affected by Gosikhurd irrigation project Locals would also benefit from job and income opportunities generated through various eco-tourism initiatives while being assured of a ‘guaranteed annual cash compensation’ for up to two times their farm output; the money for which would be raised through donations and voluntary corporate contributions The CNC is expected to usher in a win-win situation for humans forests and wildlife by ending the mutual conflict “The whole concept is to create a sustainable future for animals local communities the environment and visitors alike It is also the best way to reduce man-animal conflict and ensure livelihood based on wildlife conservation for locals” said Fadnavis who on Sunday also reviewed the Gothangaon project along with Forest Minister Sudhir Mungantiwar Senior state officials said that the government’s desire was to address the escalating issue of man-animal conflict and a shrinking forest cover through the initiative A showcase project to promote the initiative is also ready About 39 land owners from Gothangaon village in Vidharbha which is sandwiched between the Umred Karhandla Wildlife Sanctuary and the backwaters of the Goshikhurd irrigation project have consented to pool together 105 acre farm lands mostly used for grazing livestock to set up the first such CNC Chief Minister’s Principal Secretary Pravin Pardeshi also informed that some other communities located near the Pench and Bor tiger reserves have evinced interest too Later in the day the CM also visited TATR and was lucky to spot two tigresses — Maya and Tara The CM had asked his security paraphernalia to stay away to visit the reserve along with CMO principle secretary Pravin Sinh Pardeshi principle chief conservator of forest (wildlife) Shri Bhagwan and a few forest officials As the CM’s car was making its way through the dense Tadoba jungle tigress Maya even hunted down a Sambhar in front of his vehicle and pulling it away into the bushes to feed her three cubs In the last four years the state has seen over 21000 cattle deaths 2063 human deaths and injuries and over 65000 cases of crop depredation by wildlife with compensations costs of over Rs 10 crore Rs 9 crore and Rs 19 crore respectively This has also burnt a hole in the state exchequer with the government having to cough up Rs 39 crore in compensation for the losses For an average wildlife enthusiast the concept brings the promise of expanded areas of protected habitat for the wildlife The state has also attempted to control the number of tourism camps that can be set up in these areas promising to improve the overall safari experience for a tourist The lodges and tourism camps will now be promoted on revenue lands outside protected areas Bittu Sahgal Founding Editor Sanctuary Asia

NewsSydney: A wing flap that washed ashore on an island off Tanzania has been identified as belonging to missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 Australian officials said on Thursday Representational image Reuters The flap was found in June by residents on Pemba Island off the coast of Tanzania and officials had previously said it was highly likely to have come from the missing Boeing 777 An analysis by experts at the Australian Transport Safety Bureau which is heading up the search for the plane subsequently confirmed the part was indeed from the aircraft the agency said in a statement Several pieces of wreckage suspected to have come from the plane have washed ashore on coastlines around the Indian Ocean since the aircraft vanished with 239 people on board during a flight from Kuala Lumpur Malaysia to Beijing on 8 March 2014 The wing flap brings to five the number of pieces of debris the Australian Transport Safety Bureau has determined are almost certainly or are definitely from Flight 370 Another piece of wing found a year ago on La Reunion Island near Madagascar was positively identified by French officials Search officials expect more wreckage to wash up in the months ahead But so far none of the debris has helped narrow down the precise location of the main underwater wreckage The Australian Transport Safety Bureau anticipates search crews will complete their sweep of the 120000-square kilometer (46000-square mile) search zone in the Indian Ocean off Australia’s west coast by December Meanwhile oceanographers have been analyzing the wing flaps from La Reunion and Tanzania in the hope of identifying a possible new search area through drift modeling But a new search would require a new funding commitment with Malaysia Australia and China agreeing in July that the $160 million hunt will be suspended once the current stretch of ocean is exhausted unless new evidence emerges that would pinpoint a specific location of the aircraft Earlier this week relatives of some of the passengers on board the plane met with officials from the transport bureau and asked that more potential debris found around the Indian Ocean be examined The families believe those items may help provide clues to the plane’s location "If there was a tomato tree outside I would have hanged myself in that tomato tree” One would have to have one’s expectations

bottom-of-the-pile Zimbabwean side for the India series is passionate about his job as well as his team However it must be aggravating for him to see his side — a full-strength one mind you — to fail so miserably against a second-string Indian side Zimbabwe and Indian players shake hands after the second ODI PTI Zimbabwe team looked as if they had learned from their mistakes in the first ODIwhen the pair of Vusi Sibanda and Sikandar Raza seemed to have lifted their side out of a messy position of 39/3 guiding them past the 100-run mark without losing any further wickets A score in excess of 200 a competitive one by Harare standards beckoned as Sibanda got to his half-century However all it took was nine deliveries from rookie Indian leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal and the Zimbabweans tumbled down the slope collapsing from a relatively comfortable position of 106/3 to 126 all out Their batting fragility once again brutally exposed there was little that they could do to prevent a one-sided finish thereafter There were glitches in the Indian batting performance as well with both KL Rahul and Karun Nair getting dropped in the early stages of their innings before they eventually romped off towards the target with more than 23 overs to spare In the end it turned out to be yet another drab game both for the players as well as for the visitors For MS Dhoni the only takeaway was the fact that the other batsmen in the side weren’t getting enough chances to bat For a shaken Zimbabwean skipper Graeme Cremer there were little ways in which he could express himself at the post-match presentation ceremony Words it seems would be difficult to gather in light of such a devastating defeat With the series already clinched 2-0 the Indians might as well just stage a walk-over in the remaining fixture of the series if they are to let their struggling opponents win No offence to the Zimbabweans but the way they’ve gone about business in recent times they need a major
