However, the event would not be part of the actual CWG programme. As part of the compromise formula pistol and clay pigeon shooting are proposed for Birmingham whereas rifle events may be held in Bisley, Surrey.“I totally understand how passionate people are about shooting across the Commonwealth,” British daily The Guardian has reported Adams as saying. “We want India to be here, no question. I have already written to the Commonwealth Federation to see if we can accommodate shooting in some form, maybe a Commonwealth shooting championships.“It’s important that we do get a competition in 2022. It’s great for the economy. I understand the federation is still talking to the bodies and I am hopeful there can be an accommodation and a compromise made.”Meanwhile, CGF CEO David Grevemberg has said that he would also speak to India to sort out the issue. “India is a critical member of the Commonwealth; we want Indian athletes to participate, and there is a strong Indian community in Birmingham which wants to celebrate these athletes,” Grevemberg was quoted as saying.Also Read: ‘Cricket in line for inclusion in 2028 LA Olympics’ Cricket Football Previous articleDavis Cup: AITA tells ITF to suo moto shift tie from PakistanNext articleIndia-West Indies 3rd ODI match LIVE: When and where to watch LIVE telecast, timing, squads Kunal DhyaniSports Tech enthusiast, he reports on Sports Tech industry and writes on sports products.

New York teen discovers new planet while interning with NASA

first_imgiStock(NEW YORK) — A New York teen reached for the stars last summer and found a one-of-a-kind planet.Wolf Cukier, 17, an intern at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, last July, was tasked with going through data on star brightness from the facility’s ongoing Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite mission or TESS. The Scarsdale High School senior was looking at a foreign system located 1,300 light-years from Earth. He said he then observed what appeared to be a slight darkness in one of the system’s suns.It turned out that darkness was a planet 6.9 times larger than Earth that orbited two stars, what scientists call a circumbinary planet.“I had a lot of data in my notes that day about extremities in the binaries,” Cukier said. “But when I saw this one, I put 10 asterisks next to it.”Once he flagged the discovery to his research mentors, Cukier spent weeks with them and other scientists confirming his hypothesis. NASA said the teen’s discovery was rare because circumbinary planets are usually difficult to find and scientists can only detect these planets during a transit event, when one of the suns shows a decrease in brightness.The two suns in the solar system in question, TOI 1338, varied in size, with one being about 10% more massive than Earth’s sun and the other 30% of the sun’s mass, NASA said. Because the two suns orbit each other every 15 days, it was harder to distinguish the transit events from the planet, dubbed TOI 1338-b, which take place every 93 to 95 days, according to NASA.Cukier said it was tough trying to prove his discovery but the data kept pointing to a stronger confirmation.“Our confidence went up and down a couple of times, but by the end of the internship, we were confident that what we found was a planet,” he said.Cukier’s discovery and further research that he did with other NASA scientists marked the first time the TESS program discovered a planet in orbit of two stars. Their work was featured at a panel this week at the 235th American Astronomical Society meeting in Honolulu. Cukier and his mentors are looking for a science journal to publish a paper they wrote about the discovery.Cukier said he plans on continuing research into astronomy and eclipsing binaries in the future and stays in touch with his mentors at NASA frequently.“Future research would involve finding more planets,” he said. “We don’t have a large sample size of binary system planets.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

1 person fatally shot in Portland as pro-Trump supporters clash with counterprotesters

first_imgNathan Howard/Getty ImagesBY: MORGAN WINSOR, ABC NEWS    (PORTLAND) — One person was shot and killed in downtown Portland on Saturday night, as protests in Oregon’s largest city entered their fourth month.Portland police officers located the individual with a gunshot wound to the chest, after hearing gunfire in the area of Southeast 3rd Avenue and Southwest Alder Street at 8:46 p.m. local time. Medics responded and pronounced the victim dead at the scene, according to a press release from the Portland Police Department.A homicide investigation is underway. No suspect information is being released at this time, police said.Anyone who was a witness, has video or has information about the incident is urged to contact the Portland Police Department.“It is still early in this investigation, and I ask everyone to give the detectives time to do their important work before drawing conclusions about what took place,” Portland Police Chief Chuck Lovell said in a statement early Sunday. “If anyone can provide information about this case, I ask them to please reach out to our detectives. This violence is completely unacceptable and we are working diligently to find and apprehend the individual or individuals responsible.”The deadly shooting occurred as dueling demonstrations took place throughout downtown Portland. A car rally in support of President Donald Trump had gathered earlier that evening and held a massive procession that was ultimately met by counterprotesters supporting the Black Lives Matter movement. Portland ABC affiliate reported seeing clashes between the two groups on the streets.Investigators have not said whether the shooting was connected to the demonstrations or clashes.According to a separate press release from the Portland Police Department, there were “hundreds of vehicles” that participated in Saturday’s rally and a “significant number” drove into downtown as part of the procession. People in the cars “periodically exchanged words” with pedestrians and, at times, fights broke out. There were also some minor collisions, police said.“Portland Police responded to scenes of fights, disturbances and collisions throughout downtown and made some arrests,” police said in a statement early Sunday.The caravan of vehicles left the downtown area by about 8:30 p.m. local time, according to police. Over the next two hours, groups of people moved through downtown streets and there was “sporadic fighting and vandalism,” police said. The crowds slowly began to dissipate around midnight.Police arrested 10 people overnight, mostly for disorderly conduct.Black Lives Matter protests erupted in Portland and other cities across the United States following the May 25 death of George Floyd, an unarmed 46-year-old Black man who died in Minneapolis after a white police officer was filmed kneeling on his neck as three other officers watched. The protesters are calling for an end to police brutality and racial injustice.In a speech at the Republican National Convention on Thursday, Trump invoked Portland as a “Democrat-run” city plagued by “rioting, looting, arson, and violence.”Trump took to Twitter early Sunday to comment on the latest violence in Portland, calling the city’s mayor “incompetent” and “a fool.” While retweeting a video that purportedly shows Trump supporters in their cars firing paintballs and pepper spray at counterprotesters on the street, the president remarked that the “big backlash going on in Portland cannot be unexpected.”“The people of Portland won’t put up with no safety any longer,” he tweeted. “Bring in the National Guard!”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
