in the stands at the London Olympics watching the Canadian women’s basketball team play She wanted to be on the court but she wasn’t ready If that wasn’t motivation enough she sat and watched her twin sister Michelle play That was the last bit of inspiration Katherine needed to get back to work and take that next step The Plouffe twins are reunited on the court at the Rio de Janeiro Games helping Canada advance to the quarterfinals in pursuit of the country’s first medal in the sport Canada’s best finish came in 1984 when the Canadians were fourth and the country is making its second straight appearance in the Olympics with a Plouffe on the roster Canada (3-0) will play the United States (3-0) in group play Friday in a good test of those Canadian medal hopes Michelle couldn’t be happier at having her sister on the team this time around Katherine had been on Canada’s developmental team in 2012 “It was really hard for her to watch me play and not be able to participate” Michelle said “But I mean she supported me through that It’s good to have her here now” The sisters stand next to each other during the national anthem with Katherine wearing No 14 and Michelle No 15 They’re reunited after each went their separate ways for college leaving Edmonton Alberta to play collegiately in the US They followed the path started by their older sister Andrea who played at Washington Michelle chose Utah where she played four years and was an All-Pac 12 pick as a senior Katherine went to Marquette where she averaged a double-double as a senior helping the team to the Women’s NIT in 2014 “We just needed space after like 18 years together” Katherine said “We both wanted to do that and it helped our relationship like tenfold because we got to develop individually and have our own friends and come back and play together in the summer” In London Michelle played in two games as Canada reached the quarterfinals Katherine didn’t make the team “That was a huge growing period for me” Katherine said Literally Though both Plouffe sisters are listed as 6-foot-3 Katherine now is the taller twin closer to 6-4 She also has added a bit more muscle That might be why Katherine has gotten much more playing time since making her Olympic debut on Aug 6 in a 90-68 win over China She played 16 minutes and scored eight points with three rebounds while Michelle played 8 minutes In a 71-67 win over Serbia Michelle did not play and watched her sister score seven points and grab five rebounds in 22 minutes off the bench And yes playing in the Olympics is so much better than watching from the stands with their parents Laurie and Daryl “It was amazing to be on the court especially during the national anthem” Katherine said “I was just feeling like what an awesome opportunity I have here

an impact on their bid to repeat the qualification for 2010 World Cup (Source: Reuters) Top News Austria forward Marko Arnautovic poses the greatest threat to Serbia’s hopes of keeping their 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign on track captain Branislav Ivanovic said on Saturday The sides clash in Group D at Red Star Belgrade’s stadium on Sunday and Chelsea defender Ivanovic said the outcome could have a telling impact on Serbia’s bid to reach their first major tournament since the 2010 World Cup Having played against Arnautovic several times in the Premier League the 32-year-old right back heaped praise on the Stoke City forward who was born to a Serbian father and an Austrian mother “I have the utmost respect for Arnautovic because he has matured in the last year and a half or two” Ivanovic told a news conference “He has drawn a lot of attention here because of his heritage and in footballing terms he has perhaps improved beyond the quality of the club he plays for” he added “We have to close him down and if we do we have a good chance of keeping a clean sheet” Wales Serbia Austria and Ireland each have four points from two games in what is shaping up to be a fiercely competitive section with only the group winners guaranteed an automatic berth in the 32-team tournament in Russia Georgia and Moldova are yet to earn a point Ivanovic headed Serbia’s second goal in a 3-0 win at Moldova on Thursday while the Austrians twice came from behind to salvage a 2-2 home draw against Wales thanks to an Arnautovic double The towering 27-year old said he would refrain from celebrating if he scored against Serbia and defender Aleksandar Dragovic born to Serbian parents in Vienna echoed his view “It would be unfair to the fans” Arnautovic told reporters “It will not be an easy night for me because there will be a lot of emotions but I will play my heart out” Dragovic added: “We are playing against my parents’ country and most of my family will support Serbia but I think my grand-parents will cheer for me” Ivanovic said his team needed to keep up their momentum “The match against Austria is incredibly important for both teams as it could determine the entire qualification process” he said “In the past few campaigns we were pretty much out of contention after the opening two or three games whereas the situation is entirely different now” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBerlin:Bayern Munich have again qualified for the last 16 of the Champions League but head coach Jupp Heynckes admits any aspirations of finishing top of their group are "wishful thinking" Javi Martinez’s late header put Bayern into the Champions League knockout phase for the tenth season in a row by sealing a 2-1 win over Celtic at Parkhead on Tuesday File photo of Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes Reuters "The priority was to reach the knockout stages which we did everything else is wishful thinking It’s going to be difficult to finish in first place" said Heynckes "With the 3-0 win in the first leg Paris Saint-Germain have a huge advantage" Both Bayern and leaders PSG are guaranteed to progress from Group B following Tuesday’s results as the French giants trounced Anderlecht 5-0 in Paris PSG have a perfect four wins from four games with 17 goals scored and none conceded including the 3-0 rout of Bayern at the Parc de Princes in September which cost Heynckes’s predecessor Carlo Ancelotti his job If Bayern win at Anderlecht in three weeks’ time and PSG also beat Celtic at home December’s final round of matches will see the Germans host the Parisians in a showdown at the Allianz Arena In that scenario Heynckes knows that only a 4-0 win over PSG would be good enough to see Bayern top the group and potentially avoid a more difficult last-16 opponent Heynckes impact The win at Celtic was achieved without top scorer Robert Lewandowski who was sidelined by a thigh injury In his absence attacking midfielder James Rodriguez played out of position up front as Kingsley Coman gave Bayern a first-half lead after a mix-up in the Celtic defence Callum McGregor equalised for Celtic in the second half only for a bloodied Martinez to restore Bayern’s lead 13 minutes from time "That wasn’t our best game but it was our third match in six days We were effective" said veteran Arjen Robben referring to Bayern’s cup and league wins last week over RB Leipzig Bayern are unbeaten in the 72-year-old Heynckes’s six games in charge In the Bundesliga they are three points clear at the top of the table ahead of Borussia Dortmund whom they travel to on Saturday "We’re ahead we have won everything with the new coach" added Robben Heynckes has put Bayern back on track in the four weeks since he took over for a fourth stint The upcoming clash at Dortmund and next month’s Champions League tie against PSG are Bayern’s main tests before Christmas Heynckes has instilled discipline in the Bayern dressing room which Ancelotti had lost and has regular one-on-one meetings to explain decisions and motivate his players He speaks Spanish with Rodriguez to help the Colombian settle in Munich following his loan move from Real Madrid and is nurturing stand-in goalkeeper Sven Ulreich the man tasked with the considerable job of filling in for Manuel Neuer Lewandowski back-up However by their own admission Bayern need cover for Lewandowski "It would be nice if I had a little more rest" Lewandowski told Kicker magazine this week "No player can play 90 minutes every three days over a whole season" His point was proven at Celtic where teenager Manuel Wintzheimer was hastily promoted from the Under-19s as the only striker in the senior squad "Robert Lewandowski is never injured" said chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge last year to justify not having a second centre-forward in the squad The Polish striker missed just one Champions League game last season — the crucial quarter-final home tie against Real Madrid where Bayern lost 2-1 before being eliminated following a 4-2 extra-time defeat in Madrid Bayern will use the winter break to search for some back-up for Lewandowski "But we are not going to buy a player in a hurry" said the director of sport Hasan Salihamidzic "We’ll need to find a forward who can advance the team while being able to double for Lewandowski" If there were indeed any lingering doubts about the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP’s) political project in the communally-sensitive state of Uttar Pradesh the installation of hardline Hindu right-wing demagogue Yogi Adityanath as Chief Minister should put them to rest In more ways than one the choice of the Gorakhpur peeth’s controversial head priest is a deliberate and strategic ideological decision In choosing Adityanath as its mukhia in Uttar Pradesh the BJP has rendered its own slogan of inclusive development insignificant The selection of a politician who set himself up as a radical face of the ‘Hindu samaj’ flies in the face of the BJP’s repeated denials of pandering to the majority community or further deepening the already existing polarisation in Uttar Pradesh No doubt at work here is a highly successful strategy of combining developmentalist rhetoric with a politically inflammable agenda On one hand we are constantly subjected to the loud rhetoric of the BJP’s sole commitment to a ‘development for all’ agenda regardless of class caste religion or community But the appointment of a divisive communal figure as chief minister of a state considered electorally bountiful and communally precarious sends an entirely different signal to the people of the country Yogi Adityanath during his first press conference as the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh PTI For years Adityanath has actively propagated the politics of Hindutva making provocative statements that openly target the Muslim community He took an aggressive lead in the frenzied cow protection campaign that occurred in the state after the Modi government came to power In the 2014 general elections the BJP leaned heavily on him to mobilise the votes of the majority community A major presence in the recent 2017 assembly polls as well Adityanath kept up his relentless attacks on Muslims notwithstanding periodic reprimands from the Election Commission A report in The Indian Express (19 March) says: “His vitriol was in full flow in the 2017 elections too with Adityanath now the BJP’s star campaigner On 7 February he addressed his first ever press conference at the BJP state headquarters There he had said that the exodus of people from western Uttar Pradesh was an issue in the state and that UP could turn into Kashmir if Samajwadi Party remained in power Adityanath said he would raise these issues after the elections too” His relentless advocacy of anti-minority politics has finally brought him rich political dividends Prime Minister Narendra Modi who praised the BJP MP as a popular and “jujharu” (hardworking) Parliamentarian has now rewarded him with an invaluable prize Believing the BJP top brass has picked Adityanath for his non-existent administrative expertise or hidden potential in that department is simply delusional Behind the rhetoric of development lies the BJP’s (and Sangh Parivar’s) deeper core agenda of cultural nationalism which they believe is gathering more momentum in the country There has been a tactical shift in the trajectory of recent Hindutva campaigns In place of the earlier advocacy for Ram mandir at Ayodhya we now see unfolding a fractious campaign around nationalism Majoritarian nationalism is what defines cultural nationalism For the Sangh Adityanath was always a potent instrument this ideological project in Uttar Pradesh But the BJP’s unprecedented recent triumph indicating a consolidation of Hindu votes has opened up a new space where the party is confident of making aggressive moves; where even a much publicised Muslim-baiter like Adityanath can be appointed to the top political post with a great deal of fanfare It can be further argued that past experience shows how development models can be projected as successful even when they are fundamentally premised on excluding minorities on multiple levels – economic political cultural and social The Gujarat model is a good case in point Gujarat has also exemplified a particularly dangerous political model Shepherded by the BJP it has been structured along the lines of religious polarisation since at least 2002 The promotion of Adityanath as UP Chief Minister signals the BJP’s resolve to replicate such a model in Uttar Pradesh Of course it helps when media organisations newspapers and television channels (with a few exceptions) simply regurgitate government rhetoric without investigation or criticism As the new chief minister of UP gets to work those in the highest echelons of the Indian media should equally introspect about their callous coverage of the election campaign which reproduced lock stock and barrel the BJP’s claim about development without ever scratching the surface of this rhetoric Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Governor Justice (Retd) P Sathasivam

Published: October 5 2017 5:53 pm The infotainment technology that automakers are cramming into the dashboard of new vehicles is making drivers take their eyes off the road and hands off the wheel for dangerously long periods of time an AAA study says (File Photo) Related News The infotainment technology that automakers are cramming into the dashboard of new vehicles is making drivers take their eyes off the road and hands off the wheel for dangerously long periods of time an AAA study says The study released Thursday is the latest by University of Utah professor David Strayer who has been examining the impact of infotainment systems on safety for AAA’s Foundation for Traffic Safety since 2013 Past studies also identified problems but Strayer said the “explosion of technology” has made things worse Automakers now include more infotainment options to allow drivers to use social media email and text The technology is also becoming more complicated to use Cars used to have a few buttons and knobs Some vehicles now have as many as 50 buttons on the steering wheel and dashboard that are multi-functional There are touch screens voice commands writing pads heads-up displays on windshields and mirrors and 3-D computer-generated images “It’s adding more and more layers of complexity and information at drivers’ fingertips without often considering whether it’s a good idea to put it at their fingertips” Strayer said That complexity increases the overall amount of time drivers spend trying to use the systems The auto industry says the new systems are better alternatives for drivers than mobile phones and navigation devices that were not designed to be used while driving The vehicle-integrated systems “are designed to be used in the driving environment and require driver attention that is comparable to tuning the radio or adjusting climate controls which have always been considered baseline acceptable behaviors while driving” said Wade Newton a spokesman for the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers But Jake Nelson AAA’s director for traffic safety advocacy and research said drivers testing all 30 of the 2017 model year cars and light trucks took their eyes off the road and hands off the wheel while using infotainment systems The test drivers used voice commands touch screens and other interactive technologies to make calls send texts tune the radio or program navigation all while driving Clearly automakers haven’t worked hard enough to make the systems quick and easy to use Nelson said Researchers rated 23 of the 30 vehicles “very high” or “high” in terms of the attention they demanded from drivers Seven were rated “moderate” None required a low amount of attention to use Programming a destination into in-vehicle GPS navigation systems was the most distracting activity taking drivers an average of 40 seconds to complete the task At 25 mph (40 kph) a car can travel the length of four football fields during the time it takes to enter a destination Previous research has shown that drivers who remove their eyes from the road for just two seconds double their risk for a crash Under pressure from industry the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in 2012 issued voluntary safety guidelines to automakers for dashboard technology instead of enforceable safety standards The guidelines recommend that automakers lock out the ability to program navigation systems while a car is moving However the ability to program navigation while driving was available in 12 vehicles in the study The guidelines also recommend automakers prevent drivers from texting while driving but three-quarters of the vehicles tested permit drivers to text while the car is moving Texting was the second-most distracting task performed by test drivers Drivers looked away from the road less when using voice commands but that safety benefit was offset by the increased amount of time drivers spent interacting with the systems AAA said drivers should use infotainment technologies “only for legitimate emergencies or urgent driving-related purposes” It also urged automakers to block the ability to program navigation systems or send texts while driving Automakers should also design infotainment systems so that they require no more attention to use than listening to the radio or an audiobook it said Nearly 70 percent of US adults say they want the new technologies in their vehicles but only 24 percent feel that the technology already works perfectly according to an opinion survey conducted for AAA “Drivers want technology that is safe and easy to use” said Marshall Doney AAA’s president and CEO “but many of the features added to infotainment systems today have resulted in overly complex and sometimes frustrating user experiences for drivers” For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App More Related News ?
