Smith was handed a one-year ban along with his then deputy David Warner exactly a year ago for their roles in the ball-tampering scandal in South Africa.The Royals, which made a comeback to the league in 2018 after serving a two-year ban over spot-fixing and betting charges, had advanced to the play-offs last season but could not go further. The Ajinkya Rahane-led side will definitely aim to start the season 12 on a positive note.Royals, which missed the services of Smith who was involved in the ball tampering incident in South Africa, seem confident of making their 2018 campaign go big.A lot is expected from Smith. But it is yet to be known whether the Australian will make to the playing eleven or not as he has not fullyrecovered from an elbow injury.On the other hand, Punjab started the last season on a roaring note with five wins in six matches before succumbing in the business end of the league.Punjab boasts of self-proclaimed Universe Boss — Chris Gayle. The Caribbean had a relatively poor season last year. But he can never be discounted in the shortest format of cricket.Gayle is likely to open innings for Punjab with KL Rahul, and the two has the ability to fire right from the word ‘go’. Mayank Agarwal, Karun Nair and Mandeep Singh will add depth to Punjab’s batting in the middle-order.advertisementAustralian all-rounder Moises Henriques, West Indian Nicholas Pooran and South African David Miller are the other players who can single-handedly take Punjab to victory.What TV channel and live stream is the IPL 2019 match between Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab on?All IPL 2019 matches can be viewed on – Star Sports 1, Star Sports 2, Star Sports 3, Star Sports 1 in Hindi, Star Sports HD.

DVF celebrates 40th year of wrap dress with a shower of gold

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Jocelyn Noveck, The Associated Press Posted Feb 9, 2014 7:45 pm MDT NEW YORK, N.Y. – Diane von Furstenberg ended her runway show Sunday with a burst of golden confetti showering down from above, with her models — all dressed in shiny gold — dancing and cheering behind her.It was a suitably celebratory atmosphere, enhanced by live music, for a designer who’s enjoying a burst of attention this year because of the use of the wrap dress — a garment for which the word iconic is justified — in the ’70s-themed Oscar-nominated film “American Hustle.”The designer has been marking the 40th anniversary of the dress this year, with an exhibition in Los Angeles, and there were a number of them on the runway Sunday, in all sorts of colours and fabrics.Von Furstenberg’s fall preview show also got attention because of its move from the tents at Lincoln Center, where the designer has always held her shows, to a large space in Lower Manhattan. She’s one of several designers to have moved away from the tents.“This year is the anniversary so it was nice to do something new,” she said, explaining that she chose the name “Bohemian Wrapsody” for the collection, because of the anniversary and also because she was inspired by the Ballets Russe — a famous ballet company that performed throughout Europe and elsewhere in the early 20th century.“And then it occurred to me that my wrap dress was originally inspired by the little sweaters that ballerinas wear,” she said, referring to the pink sweaters that wrap with a ribbon above the waist. The finale of von Furstenberg’s show, in which the models came out again, in shiny gold dresses, made clear reference to the little sweaters.The show also featured live music by the pop singer St. Vincent, performing songs from her upcoming self-titled album. Then the singer and her band moved to a separate room, where they performed again for a group of ticket-buying American Express cardholders. The event was part of “American Express Unstaged,” launched by the company in the summer of 2010 in partnership with VEVO and YouTube. The musical performances, part of a yearlong partnership with von Furstenberg to celebrate the anniversary of the wrap dress, were also live streamed on AmexUnstaged.com and DVF.com.Last September, singer Janelle Monae performed at the runway show of designer Rebecca Minkoff as part of the same program, and American Express says it has plans to continue pairing musicians with fashion designers.___AP writer Nicole Evatt contributed to this report.

Small farmers can earn big returns by investing in climate adaptation new

The report, The Economics Advantage: Assessing the value of climate change actions in agriculture, was presented today at the UN Climate Conference in Marrakech, known by the shorthand ‘COP 22’ and is a result of cooperation between IFAD and the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS). “There is a strong economic case to be made for investing in agriculture for future food security, even under changing climate conditions,” said IFAD’s Director of Environment and Climate, Margarita Astralaga. “IFAD’s ASAP, the world’s largest programme for smallholder farmers’ adaptation, shows that where investments are made that help farmers adapt to climate change the returned financial benefit to farmers is much, much higher.” According to findings, regions where IFAD invests in adaptation, the rate of return for farmers and the government agencies comes in 15 to 35 per cent higher, even despite the cost of borrowing. CCAFS’s Head of Research, Sonja Vermeulen stressed the importance of agriculture for adaptation and mitigation, ‘saying: “Agriculture is especially sensitive to climate change, as well as accounting for significant emissions.” In addition, there is a strong economic rationale for supporting actions on agriculture confirmed by the majority of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) to the Paris Agreement. “Climate change proposals on agriculture need to be supported by credible economic and financial proposals in order to unleash significant public and private finance,” stated Ms. Astralaga. “The purpose of this report is to share emerging information to support the use of clear and concise economic data that shows when, where and how IFAD investments bring financial returns to the communities we work with,” she added. Reports have also shown that positive economic returns can be implemented in practices to build adaptive capacity and reduce emissions intensity such as innovative rice cropping in Viet Nam, or switching from growing coffee to cocoa in Nicaragua. Furthermore, an additional set of non-technical mitigation and adaptation intervention are equally important but more difficult to implement, including capacity building, institutional strengthening, access to value chains and research. read more
