Pakistan in final round of talks with IMF over bailout deal

first_imgISLAMABAD — Pakistan and the International Monetary Fund are into their final round of talks over an $8 billion bailout package Islamabad seeks from the international lending agency to overcome the country’s economic woes.Finance Minister Asad Umar acknowledged the two sides have differences and that the talks may not end on Tuesday.Authorities say they are still at odds over electricity rate hikes, as well as interest rate hikes and tax collection targets, and that the IMF is looking for more than Pakistan’s new government feels it can manage.Pakistan has been approaching the IMF since 1980s and received a $6.7 billion loan in 2013. It’s also seeking fresh loans from China, which has already heavily invested in transport and energy, as well as Saudi Arabia and some other Muslim countries.The Associated Presslast_img read more

Moroccan Actress Receives Death Threats For Her Role in ‘Much Loved’

Rabat – Loubna Abidar, the heroin of Nabil Ayouch’s controversial film, “ Much Loved (Zine Li Fik)” which chronicles the daily life of four marginalized prostitutes in the city of Marrakech, has reportedly received death threats over a telephone call.The actress wrote on her Facebook page that she had received an anonymous call to her home phone from an unknown person threatening to kill her.“Imagine a stranger calling your parents to tell them that their daughter is going to die… It is only the cinema… cinema!” said the distressed actress following the attack. “People who call us on the phone insult my parents. I do not understand how they got ahold of our home phone number. It’s a shame,” the actress added. Trying to defend herself on Med Radio, Loubna Abidar said that she was only playing the role of a prostitute, “the image of many prostitutes that exist in Morocco.”“If I would have played the role of a killer, would that have made me a killer?” she questioned.After the growing public outcry denouncing the explicit scenes in the film, the government responded by banning the film on Monday, May 25th.A statement from the Ministry of Communication said, “the film undermines the moral values and dignity of Moroccan women, as well as all the image of Morocco.” read more

Noconfidence motion seen as failed attempt to push for change

“They were not even in Parliament when the vote was taken,” he added. The Government says the no-confidence motion on Finance Minister Ravi Karunanayake, which was defeated in Parliament last week, was a failed attempt by the opposition to push for a change of Government.Minister of Irrigation and Water Resources Management Vijith Vijayamuni Soyza told reporters today that even former President Mahinda Rajapaksa and his son, Parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa, had not supported the no-confidence motion. He also said that several other opposition members had also not used their vote on the no-confidence motion which was submitted by the joint opposition. The Minister insisted that the no-confidence motion was not brought about in the best interest of the people but only to meet the agenda of the opposition. (Colombo Gazette) read more

Saputo gains majority control of Australias oldest dairy processor

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Saputo gains majority control of Australia’s oldest dairy processor by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted Jan 21, 2014 2:43 pm MDT MONTREAL – Saputo has come out on top in a bidding war for Australia’s oldest dairy processor by gaining majority control of Warrnambool Cheese & Butter, the company confirmed Tuesday.The Montreal-based company wrote in a filing with the Australian Stock Exchange that it has secured a stake of 52.7 per cent in the dairy ahead of the Wednesday deadline for its offer.Saputo gained control when Wilson Asset Management, which owns 1.15 per cent of Warrnambool, and other shareholders, agreed to sell their stakes, the Business Spectator website and the Australian Broadcasting Corp reported.Saputo spokeswoman Sandy Vassiadis said the company is “happy” to have secured a majority of Warrnambool’s shares.The Canadian cheese giant has been eyeing Australia for a decade as it sought ways to extend its reach into the Asia-Pacific area and capitalize on growing global demand for dairy solids. The demand for milk powder used in baby formula, for example, has grown by 25 per cent annually since 2010.The deadline for its offer has now been extended by 14 days to give more Warrnambool shareholders time to accept Saputo’s offer, which could raise the price to as high as AU$9.60 from AU$9.20, if enough shareholders tender their shares.Saputo’s (TSX:SAP) offer of AU$9 per Warrnambool share rose to AU$9.20 after securing more than half of its stock. The bid rises to AU$9.40 per share if it gets 75 per cent of Warrnambool and AU$9.60 if it gets 90 per cent.Saputo will pay between AU$503.7 million (C$486.3 million) and AU$537.3 million (C$518.8 million), depending on the result.Warrnambool’s shares closed Tuesday at AU$9.31 on the Australian Securities Exchange, suggesting investors expect Saputo to get a solid majority of WCB shares.Montreal-based Saputo has been creeping towards the finish line after one-time rival Bega Cheese, Australia’s fifth-largest dairy processor, last week agreed to tender its 18.8 per cent stake in the dairy.The last official count put Saputo at 47.85 per cent.Analyst Irene Nattel of RBC Capital Markets said Saputo’s takeover of WCB now is “virtually assured” and positive for the Canadian cheese producer.“The proposed acquisition is highly strategic and would provide SAP with an important platform to capitalize on global growth in emerging markets,” she wrote in a report.One of the remaining questions is how large Saputo’s stake will be.“The wild card in the process remains (rival bidder) Murray Goulburn,” Nattel said.Murray Goulburn, the co-operative that runs Australia’s largest dairy processor, controls 17.7 per cent of Warrnambool and has bid US$9.50 contingent on winning competition tribunal support.“Given the uncertainty of approval by the Australian Competition Tribunal, we would expect Murray Goulburn to tender to Saputo while simultaneously expressing its disappointment and pointing to the windfall profit it will realize on its stake,” Nattel said.The competition tribunal said Monday that it would proceed with its inquiry into Murray Goulburn’s bid, set to begin Feb. 10, even if Saputo secured more than half of Warrnambool.Kirin Holdings also owns about 10 per cent of Warrnambool through its Lion unit in Australia.Warrnambool is seen as a potential toe hold in the Asia-Pacific region for Canada’s largest cheese and dairy company, which also has a major presence in the United States and operations in South America.Australia is the world’s third-largest exporter of milk products after the European Union and New Zealand, with about 10 per cent of the global market share.On the Toronto Stock Exchange, Saputo’s shares closed down one cent to C$52.54 in Tuesday trading. read more

Mount Rainier makes changes after rangers death

first_imgYAKIMA — Climbing rangers on iconic Mount Rainier had become comfortable working on the mountain’s icy slopes without being roped or tethered for safety and had become desensitized to potential hazards, according to a review released Tuesday into the death of a ranger who fell during a rescue operation last year.As a result of the report, the National Park Service plans to review all high-risk operations, including climbing, boating and diving, in the Pacific Northwest region, Regional Director Chris Lehnertz said in a conference call with reporters.The review also recommended that Mount Rainier establish protocols and standard operating procedures for climbing rangers to protect against falls in the future, as well as plans for search and rescue and incident command operations.Nick Hall, 33, fell about 2,400 feet to his death on the mountain’s icy, exposed Emmons Glacier while helping to rescue four injured climbers from Waco, Texas, on June 21, 2012. Hall was a four-year climbing ranger originally from Patten, Maine.Two of the injured climbers had fallen into a crevasse at the 13,800 foot level, on their way down from the 14,411-foot summit. Hall had built an ice shelf to treat one of the injured climbers, but he stepped away from his ice tool to secure a litter, which is essentially a reinforced stretcher, from a helicopter.last_img read more

Samsung Galaxy S11 5G may be slimmer last longer thanks to Qualcomm

first_img • reading • Samsung Galaxy S11 5G may be slimmer, last longer thanks to Qualcomm Galaxy S10 5G: Samsung debuts its first 5G phone May 13 • Galaxy S10E vs. iPhone XR: Every spec compared Comments Qualcomm is the primary provider of 5G chips for smartphones and other devices.  Jessica Dolcourt/CNET 5G’s just getting started, but Qualcomm’s already talking up its third chip for the ultra-fast networking tech. And Samsung’s planning to use it in future Galaxy S devices. Qualcomm on Monday at MWC in Barcelona unveiled its first processor that integrates its 5G modem technology with the Snapdragon applications processor that serves as the brains of a device. The first two 5G chips from Qualcomm were standalone modems that worked alongside a main computing processor.”The integration of our breakthrough 5G multimode modem and application processing technologies into a single SoC is a major step in making 5G more widely available across regions and tiers,” Qualcomm President Cristiano Amon said in a press release. Read more: Qualcomm’s new 5G phone chips can power a new wave of AR, VR glassesQualcomm is the world’s biggest provider of mobile chips, and it created technology that’s essential for connecting phones to cellular networks. It’s been leading the industry when it comes to 5G connectivity chips, with virtually all high-end 5G Android phones — except for Huawei devices — using its modems this year. Rivals MediaTek and Intel (which is now Apple’s sole modem supplier) likely won’t have 5G chips in phones until next year.  Now playing: Watch this: Jun 1 • The Nubia Alpha looks like either a house arrest bracelet or Batman’s phone Jun 29 • Galaxy S10 5G, OnePlus 7 Pro LG V50 ThinQ 5G: Why you shouldn’t rush to buy a 5G phone Share your voice Lenovo on Monday said it will “be the first” to have a 5G PC on the market in early 2020.The aim of always-connected PCs is to bring smartphone features to computers, like all-day or even multiple-day battery life and constant 4G LTE connectivity. People spend an increasing amount of time on their phones and less time on their PCs, and they’re holding onto computers for much longer than their phones. The answer for Microsoft and traditional PC makers has been to turn computers into something more like phones — and the promise of Qualcomm-powered computers was multiday battery life.With the new 5G 8cx, Qualcomm is still touting multiday use but said “battery life varies significantly with settings, usage and other factors.”Robot chipsLet’s not forget about robots. Qualcomm on Monday introduced its first chip system for our future overlords, the Qualcomm Robotics RB3 Platform. It combines hardware, software and tools to help manufacturers and developers build robots. The first version is 4G LTE, but it will be updated later this yera to include 5G. Robots that already use Qualcomm technology include the Sony Aibo robotic dog and vacuum cleaners from iRobot and Panasonic. The hope is the Robotics RB3 Platform will enable new robots in agriculture, consumer, delivery, inspection, service, smart manufacturing, warehousing and logistics, and other areas.Naver and LG “are evaluating” the Robotics RB3 platform and plan to show robots using the technology early next year. CNET may get a commission from retail offers. For now, Qualcomm’s the only chipmaker with a 5G modem available, aside from Huawei. But Huawei uses its chips only in its own devices such as the Mate X it unveiled Sunday. The foldable phone has three screens, including an 8-inch interior screen and four rear cameras. And it costs a whopping 2,299 euros (about $2,600). It uses Huawei’s Balong 5000 modem alongside its Kirin 980 application processor. Samsung, the world’s biggest phone vendor, unveiled its first 5G phone last week during its Unpacked event in San Francisco, and Oppo on Saturday talked up its first, not-yet-named 5G phone. Xiaomi on Sunday said a 5G version of its Mi Mix 3 will hit the market in May for 599 euros ($679), and other companies are expected to talk up their own 5G devices at MWC. The initial 5G devices will use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 paired with the X50 modem. Devices hitting the market later this year and early in 2020 will use the X55. Amon on Monday said over 30 devices currently are being developed using the X50 modem. While 5G could bring big benefits to consumers, it has some early hurdles, including power consumption. Typically when a new mobile technology first comes out, the battery life takes a big hit. To combat that, Quacomm’s upcoming integrated chip — as well as the X50 and X55 modems — features the company’s 5G PowerSave technology to conserve battery life. When 5G PowerSave is combined with other Qualcomm energy techniques, 5G phones could have battery life comparable to Gigabit LTE devices today. “We’re not going to launch any 5G device on Qualcomm chips without the capability,” Amon said Monday. “It’s a feature that will allow a 5G user to have all-day battery life on their smartphones.”Quick wireless chargingAlong with announcing its new integrated chip, Qualcomm on Monday made a host of other announcements at its MWC press conference. A big one that will benefit consumers relates to wireless charging. Qualcomm said its Quick Charge technology will be coming to Qi wireless chargers, letting them quickly juice up dead batteries. Wireless charging, while convenient, has tended to be slow, taking much longer to fully charge a device than simply plugging it in with a cable. The efforts will give forward and backward compatibility, and Quick Charge wireless charging pads will work with Quick Charge 2.0, 3.0, 4 and 4+ adapters that millions of people already use. Devices that currently use Quick Charge include the LG G7 ThinQ and the Razer Phone 2. Chinese handset and scooter maker Xiaomi is the first company to build a Quick Charge-enabled wireless power pad, the Mi Wireless Charging Pad.5G in PCs — with Lenovo in early 20205G’s not just for phones. Qualcomm also expects it to show up in PCs, and it’s got a chip ready to connect computers in late 2019.  The company has paired its second-gen 5G modem, the X55, with its 8cx processor for computers that it unveiled in December. At the time, Qualcomm said the 8cx would be in PCs in time for the back-to-school period.  Qualcomm Xiaomi 5G 4G LTE Bluetooth Huawei Intel Lenovo LG Microsoft Panasonic Razer Samsung Sony Mentioned Above Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 $392 MWC 2019: All the phones and gadgets we cared about No, Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 doesn’t automatically mean 5G Qualcomm already has a new 5G chip that promises sleeker, long-lasting phones Xiaomi moves into 5G with the Mi Mix 3 5G at MWC 2019 1:52 Jul 9 • Killer cameras and battery life might meet their match in the Note 10 MWC 2019: All the phones and gadgets we cared about Tags See it Review • Xiaomi Mi Mix 3’s slider is almost perfect See All Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 Qualcomm makes standalone modems, but it’s best-known for its ability to integrate a modem with the application processor. Doing so reduces power consumption and the amount of space the chips take up in a device, letting phones be even sleeker than before or pack in even larger batteries. Having an integrated chip also enables device makers to quickly develop phones for essentially any 5G network in the world. And it makes 5G handsets cheaper for consumers.Samsung will be the first company to work with Qualcomm on its integrated 5G chip, Amon said during a press conference Monday at MWC. And June Hee Lee, the head of Samsung’s technology strategy team, said on stage at Qualcomm’s press conference that his company is looking forward to using Qualcomm’s new chips.”Samsung has been at the forefront of taking 5G from cutting-edge concept to reality,” he said. “We are putting the most advanced network innovations directly in the hands of consumers to deliver the fastest speeds possible.” An integrated futureThe integrated chip, whose name Qualcomm hasn’t revealed, will be a follow-up to last year’s Snapdragon 855. That processor is powering most high-end Android phones this year, including Samsung’s Galaxy S10 lineup and Galaxy Fold, Xiaomi’s Mi Mix 3 5G and LG’s V50 ThinQ. The Snapdragon 855 comes integrated with Qualcomm’s X24 modem that’s capable of multigigabit 4G LTE download speeds. To get 5G on devices requires Qualcomm’s separate 5G modem.The integrated processor will be distributed to customers as a sample in the second quarter and will be in commercial products in the first half of 2020, Qualcomm said. Based on that timeline, it’s possible the Galaxy S10’s successor — the Galaxy S11? — could use the chip.5G promises to significantly boost the speed, coverage and responsiveness of wireless networks. It can run between 10 and 100 times faster than your typical cellular connection today, and even quicker than anything you can get with a physical fiber-optic cable going into your house. It’ll also boost how fast a device will connect to the network with speeds as quick as a millisecond to start your download or upload. MWC, the world’s biggest mobile trade show, has seen announcement after announcement by companies working on 5G — and Qualcomm has been part of most of them.5G risingQualcomm unveiled its first 5G chip, the X50, two years ago. It’s only now making its way into mobile devices as carriers start turning on their 5G networks over the next year. The X50 is capable of download speeds of up to 5 Gbps, and over 20 companies are working on more than 30 phones with the X50 for this year, Qualcomm said. Qualcomm announced its second 5G chip, the X55, last week. The modem can run on 2G, 3G and 4G networks along with the new, ultrafast 5G networks. It also will let developers create unlocked 5G phones, much like what’s available with 4G LTE devices. And you’ll be able to download data over 5G networks at up to 7 Gbps. Mobile World Congress 2019 28 Photos 3 28 Photos See also Phones Components Car Tech Laptops 5G and Wi-Fi 6 in carsCars need connectivity too. Well, at least most cars designed today. Qualcomm unveiled a new automotive Wi-Fi 6 chip, the QCA6696, to bring fast Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections to cars. The chip will support Gigabit in-car hotspots and let passengers stream ultra high-definition video on multiple displays and mirror their screens from compatible devices. Qualcomm also introduced its new Snapdragon Automotive 4G and Snapdragon Automotive 5G Platforms. Both include technology for things like dual SIMs, precise positioning for lane-level navigation accuracy, multigigabit cloud connectivity and vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-roadside infrastructure communications for safety. The features are necessary for self-driving cars. Automakers will be able to test the 4G and 5G Platforms later this year to get ready for the technology to appear in production vehicles in 2021. Originally published at 1 a.m. PTUpdate at 2:12 a.m. PT with comments from executives Mobile World Congress 2019last_img read more

No Minifigs Were Harmed In The Filming Of This Lego Crash Test

first_img Lego makes some pretty special models of some pretty special cars. They’ve done the iconic Volkswagen T1 camper van, the legendary Caterham Seven 620R, and, of course, the stunning Porsche 911 GT3 RS.Today we’re going to focus on the Porsche, which Lego released about a year ago. It’s an extraordinary build. The box contains over 2700 pieces, and there are more than 850 steps in the build process, during which you assemble a fully-functional drivetrain. Experienced builders can expect to spend about four solid hours putting the 1:8 scale 911 GT3 RS together.Taking it apart, however, is a much faster process… especially when you do it by slamming it into a barrier at 46km/h. Why on Earth would anyone do that, you ask? Because you’re a German vehicle safety group (Allgemeiner Deutscher Automobil-Club or ADAC for short) and it’s a fun way to promote your cause, of course!That, and you can always put aside another four hours and rebuild anyway. Now, for your viewing pleasure, here’s the Lego Porsche crash test… shot in stunning 1000FPS slow motion on multiple cameras:It’s both painful to watch and deeply satisfying at the same time, like so many other Lego destruction videos. If you’re looking for more well-done ones, the Slow Mo Guys Lego Plane Crash is another brilliant example, as is Wired’s demolition of a massive Lego Star Destroyer in celebration of Star Wars Day.

This release… read more Rural America does not show up in any atlas but, geographically, it accounts for 80 percent of the United States’ land mass, according to the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health. About 62 million people live there, all of whom have the same clinical needs as those who live in big cities. Meeting their needs, however, can be very hard, especially when it comes to high-tech imaging.Rural health centers typically struggle with the double whammy of tight budgets and limited resources. Often these centers have trouble affording the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) scanners that are common in big cities. That’s why some rural facilities opt for workarounds. One is to contract with mobile providers.One mobile MRI provider visits Republic County Hospital of Belleville, Kansas, twice a week. But that may not go on for long. The 25-bed critical assess hospital is considering the installation of an MRI scanner on site, according to David-Paul Cavazos, CEO of Republic County Hospital.Part of the Great Plains Health Alliance, the Republic County Hospital is bookended by more than a dozen MR scanners in Salina, Kansas, and Lincoln, Nebraska. But to take advantage of them, patients must drive more than an hour or nearly two hours, respectively.“Agriculture is a big employer around here,” Cavazos said. “It’s not easy to just walk away from farm work.”Traveling long distances can be difficult for rural residents. Patients of Star Valley Medical Center faced this challenge.The medical center they depended on — a 22-bed, critical access hospital in Afton, Wyoming — used a mobile MR unit until their needs exceeded the capacity of the service. With its mobile unit booked well in advance, patients who urgently needed a scan had trouble getting scheduled. The backlog was also leading some patients to drive 70 miles to Jackson Hole for their MRIs. Surveys Indicate Clinical NeedsAfter surveying patients and physicians about what they expected from MRI services at the hospital, administrators at Star Medical Center decided to purchase an MRI scanner, choosing one that meets the broadest needs of the patient population.Serving patients since 1970, West Feliciana Hospital in St. Francisville, LA., installed an MRI scanner, which  — similarly — took over from a once-a-week mobile service. The stationary system was acquired after a survey strongly indicated that hospital physicians wanted an MRI scanner on-site.Although some patients were opting to trek 40 miles to Baton Rouge for MRIs, overall patient demand for MRI was low. But there was potential for growth.

He runs the consulting service, The Freiherr Group. Differing Selection CriteriaWhereas rural health systems often struggle to obtain the technologies to serve their patients, urban ones may offer many such technologies. The needs of rural providers are both simpler and more challenging than those of urban centers, as rural providers must find systems that can handle all patients who come to them. With their oval bores, the 1.5T scanners at Star Valley Medical Center and West Feliciana Hospital exemplify this — designed to deliver quality MR images regardless of the patient.For rural providers, therefore, success in meeting imaging needs may depend on finding the common denominator rather than the uncommon.

constitutional post as BJP’s ploy to shed its upper-caste image and woo the Dalit community especially in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar While Kovind’s Dalit background may have been a reason for his elevation the former Bihar Governor can also help the NDA to get his assent on key bills especially through the ordinances route File image of Ram Nath Kovind PTI Ordinances are issued by the Centre when the Parliament is not in session According to Article 123 of the Indian Constitution the president can give his assent to an ordinance if he or she is satisfied that there is a need for such an action Having a NDA nominee as the president can help the ruling alliance push through its ordinances Ordinances have been a way for the NDA to circumvent the Rajya Sabha where it lacks a majority Between 2014 and August 2016 the Modi government issued 22 ordinances to bypass the Upper House of the Parliament A 2015 Firstpost article noted: "The compulsion of the Modi government appears to be its poor strength in the Rajya Sabha While it can pass bills in the parliament because of its brute majority they will face a roadblock in the upper house The solution to such a situation is not bypassing the system itself but to take everybody along Why pass legislation without the will of the people" It is to be noted that the BJP-led NDA is only expected to get a majority in the Upper House by 2018 While presidents are generally considered rubber stamps in India there have been times when the president has refused to toe the government line and reserved bills for reconsideration There are two prominent instances of the president refusing assent to a bill In 1987 the then president Zail Singh refused to give his assent to the Indian Post Office (Amendment) Bill creating friction between him and Rajiv Gandhi Two decades later in 2006 APJ Abdul Kalam refused to approve the Office of Profit bill passed by the Congress-led UPA government Not only bills but presidents have in the past also rejected Centre’s call for imposing President’s Rule in states In 1998 then president KR Narayanan sent back a proposal from the caretaker IK Gujral government to impose President’s Rule in Uttar Pradesh which was then ruled by BJP’s Kalyan Singh The NDA government would like Kovind in the Rashtrapati Bhavanto pass bills like Gujarat’s GCOCA bill which had been rejected by Kalam Pratibha Patil and Pranab Mukherjee First passed by the Narendra Modi-led Gujarat government in 2003 the bill has repeatedly been rejected over concerns regarding certain aspects of

their run of losses as they take on a rampaging FC Goa in the Indian Super League (ISL) Placed second in the pecking order FC Goa are coming into the game on the back of a 5-1 drubbing of Kerala Blasters FC and would be eager to displace leaders Bengaluru FC from the top Delhi Dynamos players in a huddle Image courtesy: Twitter @DelhiDynamos A win at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium by three or more goals would help FC Goa claim the top spot Goa’s three victories in four matches are in stark contrast to Delhi’s three defeats in four outings this season Such has been FC Goa’s form that every victory has seen them score at least three goals They’ve lost just one match and will fancy their chances against a side that is coming on the back of three losses in a row FC Goa have often played with the kind of style and verve which has often been unmatched by other teams They are reaping the benefits of having two in-form forwards in Ferran Corominas and Manuel Lanzarote The former is the league’s top-scorer with seven goals and the latter has four strikes to his name — the two of them combining to score 11 of the 13 goals the team has managed so far The only worry for Spanish coach Sergio Lobera is that his side has not yet managed to keep a single clean sheet in four matches They’ve conceded at least two goals in three out of the four games so far But Lobera’s fellow countryman Miguel Angel Portugal has more difficult problems to solve Despite playing matches less than FC Pune City and Bengaluru Delhi are third among 10 teams when it comes to the number of touches (2824) a team has taken Surprisingly they have pumped in the most number of crosses (74) and had the most number of passes at the end of four rounds as well That however has not materialised into much in front of goal The Dynamos have despite their dominance on the ball shockingly taken just 28 shots in four games That’s less than any other team in the ISL Just like ATK they’ve not asserted themselves physically throwing just 89 tackles in four matches — one more than ATK Portugal admitted that the side is working on converting their dominance into goals "In the games so far we have dominated the ball and did everything well but we know we are not scoring and the team is working on that" he said It will be the ultimate test for both coaches in terms of keeping possession and playing pretty football While FC Goa have combined it with a lethal eye in front of goal Delhi Dynamos have suffered from a shot-shy attitude and have the worst goal difference in the entire league (-5) A victory could still do wonders for them because three points at home will take them to seventh on the table With inputs from PTI Isabella Brockhouse and Emily Tarala said that besides being in it to win it,
