instructed his team to celebrate by holding up three fingers to indicate the three trophies they had clinched – Community Shield EFL Cup and the Europa League It was a classic Mourinho move – the image was splashed on the front pages of most newspapers and websites giving readers a lingering sense that this was a team that had tasted a lot of success But even Mourinho knew deep down that his first season at the Manchester club was far from what he would have wanted United finished sixth in the Premier League and weren’t much of a threat domestically Manchester United players pose for a team photo before the UEFA Super Cup match Reuters The main issues that plagued United were the inability to finish matches off especially at Old Trafford and a lack of goals Fifteen draws and 54 goals make for abysmal numbers – even the ninth-placed AFC Bournemouth (55) scored more goals than the mighty Manchester United Mourinho’s solution for United’s profligacy in front of goal was to sign Romelu Lukaku for a reported 75million from Everton Since joining the Premier League the Belgian has had four seasons of 15-plus goals and last year he was on the scoresheet for a whopping 25 times He will have to fill Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s shoes and endure a lot of scrutiny and pressure While Lukaku’s addition will definitely ease some of United’s goal-scoring woes it’s the other attacking options that will need to step up for them to become a dominant force in the league: Anthony Martial Marcus Rashford Juan Mata Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan give Mourinho plenty of options up front but at least a couple of them need to score in the double figures in the next 10 months In the 2016/17 season Mata was the second-highest scorer for the team in the league with just six goals behind Ibrahimovic’s 17 Star signing Pogba struggled to live to his full potential (and price tag) with only five goals and four assists in domestic football However this season the Frenchman could become an explosive force thanks to Mourinho’s other signing: Nemanja Matic for reported 40million from Chelsea Matic adds aggression and discipline to United’s midfield and he will fit right into Mourinho’s preferred three-man midfield and should be a regular figure in the starting XI alongside Ander Herrera and Pogba A partnership between Herrera and Matic will allow Pogba more freedom to express himself and the license to roam forward Both Lukaku and Matic represented more than just regular signings — by hijacking Chelsea’s bid for the Belgian striker and then weakening the defending champions existing squad by securing Matic Mourinho sent out a warning sign to the rival clubs and further underlined his title-winning aspirations New signings Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic will be crucial to Manchester United’s title aspirations in the upcoming Premier League season Reuters Mourinho’s third signing – Victor Lindelof for 31million from Benfica – strengthens his defensive line But it is this defence that looks the most undecided at the moment Eric Bailly bought last year for 30m and Antonio Valencia are the only two defenders who look assured of a starting spot The second centre-back and left-back position is still a battle between Lindelof and Phil Jones and Matteo Darmin Daley Blind and Marcus Rojo respectively As stingy as United’s defence was last season – Mourinho’s team kept the joint most clean sheets in the league with 17 – they can at times look really shaky at the back and will need to avoid conceding late goals In goal David de Gea remains a steadfast presence and the Spaniard is one of the best keepers in the Premier League Sergio Romero represents a solid second choice who is happy to step up when called on If reports are to be believed Mourinho is still looking to sign one more player before the transfer window slams shut at the end of August and if they manage to acquire a versatile winger they will a resemble a force that should easily challenge for the title As the Super cup final showed Marouane Fellaini continues to be Mourinho’s trusted man and with good reason While the 29-year-old can often cut a frustrating figure he has shown he is an effective plan B for Mourinho to rely on With the new signings Mourinho could line his team in a variety of ways but a 4-3-3 or a 4-2-3-1 looks set to be the preferred formation The big question still remains whether Mourinho can forge a consistent starting side out of his squad after a year in which injuries hampered any attempt at continuity After a first season of transition Mourinho must stamp his authority on this team and is under a lot of pressure to deliver the coveted Premier League title Manchester United’s opening six matches are against West Ham Swansea City Leicester City Stoke City Everton and Southampton and a strong start is a must for Mourinho and his men Some of these are tricky fixtures but it’s against teams like these that United struggled last season Thisyear they will have to ensure that they bring back an aura of invincibility to Old Trafford and do not drop points especially at home While they do not have the cumbersome Thursday night Europa League matches to deal with Champion League football is a whole different ball game altogether Mourinho ensured that United returned to the elite tournament where they deservedly belong but a lot will come down to how the manager rotates his players to tackle and cope with different fixtures Since taking over the reins at the Manchester club the Portuguese manager has spent over 300 million and meticulously cherry-picked his signings Over his managerial career Mourinho has often tasted success in his second season at a club with the domestic league title United haven’t lifted the Premier League trophy since 2013 which was Sir Alex Ferguson’s last season in charge Since Ferguson’s departure United have finished seventh fourth fifth and sixth in the Premier League A top-four finish will no longer be enough If Mourinho is to prove that he is indeed the worthy successor to Ferguson’s throne Manchester United will have to challenge for the title at the least Anything less would be considered failure Sepang: Sebastian Vettel still had a smile on his face after qualifying for the Malaysian Grand Prix on Saturday as the German put on a brave face despite the pain of the latest setback to strike his championship challenge The Ferrari driver trails Mercedes rival Lewis Hamilton by 28 points in the standings will start Sunday’s race deadlast after power unit problems prevented him from setting a time Hamilton meanwhile will begin on pole “It’s very bitter but then it’s motor racing” said the four-times champion who ran into trouble in Saturday’s final practice session and had his engine changed before qualifying “It’s been a difficult day but the guys were phenomenal fixing the car changing the engine in just two hours” Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel smiles during a press conference at Sepang International Circuit for the Malaysian Grand Prix AP Vettel’s title hopes have been dealt a setback for the second race in a row In Singapore he crashed out on the opening lap after having started from pole leaving the way clear for Hamilton to win from fifth He seemed set to claw back at least some of the points he lost in Singapore this weekend with Ferrari displaying potentially race-winning pace and Mercedes struggling to extract speed from their challenger Instead Hamilton who retired from a commanding lead in Malaysia last year goes into Sunday’s race poised to make another huge stride toward his fourth title The gap between the championship contenders is already the biggest it has been in an otherwise hard-fought season between the pair The Briton will not need to win another race this year if he triumphs on Sunday with Vettel lower than second or if he outscores the German by more than seven points The Malaysian race has never been won from lower than eighth on the grid Still retired champion Nico Rosberg finished third last year after dropping to the back of the field with a spin on the opening lap and Vettel is optimistic he can minimise the damage “I think we have a very quick car this weekend so we should be able to make up a lot of ground” said the record four-times Malaysia winner who consoled his heartbroken mechanics after getting out of his car “We saved a lot of tyres we can choose the strategy so there’s lots of positives” he said “We need to extract the maximum knowing the race here the conditions and so on could be anything” Is Virat Kohli the Don Bradman of ODI cricket England must think so as the newly-crowned Indian ODI team skipper made light of an imposing target of 351 by notching up his 27th ODI hundred in only his 169th innings a feat unparalleled in the history of the game England must also wonder what IS a safe total in this format of the game They had made totals of over 400 in Tests only to be whipped time and again by the Indian batting line-up Now a seemingly humongous ODI total of 350 for 7 was brushed aside as a couple of batsmen – one batting out of his skin and the other as though it was a walk in the park – stole the thunder in front of a packed Pune house Is Virat Kohli the Don Bradman of ODI cricket AP But first a mention must be made about the incredible positive mindset of Kohli and his extraordinary ability to coax heroic contributions from the most unexpected of quarters In Tests he was able to motivate Ravichandran Ashwin Jayant Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja to rise to the challenge and come up with outstanding batting performances that virtually knocked the stuffing out of the Englishmen In Pune he was at hand to guide and prod the pint-sized Kedar Jadhav through a tough initial phase and the latter responded with a magnificent century The task at hand was monstrous almost impossible India had lost the cream of their batting strength – Shikar Dhawan KL Rahul Yuvraj Singh and Mahendra Singh Dhoni – all players who could batter the bowling and keep abreast with the required run rate The score at that stage was a measly 63 for the loss of four wickets and the momentum most certainly was with England Lesser mortals would have reckoned this to be a lost cause and either settled for serious batting practice ahead of the next ODI or simply thrown in the towel But not Kohli India’s captain courageous His immense confidence and faith in his ability convinced him that the seemingly impregnable total of 350 was within grasp Importantly he could instill similar confidence in a relatively inexperienced Jadhav Together they forged the sort of force that England will not forget for a long time to come Additionally they have dealt a severe blow to the visitors’ morale and self-esteem and it would be interesting to see how England recoversfrom it Kohli’s prodigious output with the bat his 27th century in only his 169th innings must also be put in perspective Maestro Sachin Tendulkar took 254 innings to reach the 27-ton marker while other ODI greats Ricky Ponting and Sanath Jayasuriya took 308 and 404 innings respectively Interestingly Kohli who had featured in two other successful run chases in excess of 350 scored his 122 runs from 105 deliveries (8×4 5×6) as against the 100 not out from 52 deliveries in Jaipur and 115 not out from 66 deliveries in Nagpur both against Australia On this occasion while all the English efforts were largely concentrated in either dismissing him or containing him Jadhav slipped into the role of pace setter with a 76-ball innings of 120 (12×4 4×6) Their fifth wicket partnership of 200 off 146 balls came at a rollicking run rate of 816 About the only shortcoming on Jadhav’s part was his inability to keep pace in running between the wickets with a super-fit Kohli He tried his best yet had to wisely turn down Kohli’s calls for more enthusiastic scampering between the wickets And even that took a toll on him as he suffered from leg cramps when well into his 90s But on all other occasions Jadhav was equal to the challenge He pulled with power and also lofted the ball into the straight field often to outfox the bowlers A couple of late cuts too were exquisitely timed to beat the infield At the other end Kohli batted like only he could One backfoot punch for six over long on was mind-boggling The pair simply ran England ragged Earlier Jason Roy Joe Root and Ben Stokes kept the Union Jack flying high with refreshing stroke play Root (78 from 95 balls) might have been more circumspect But he was fitting into the role of holding one end up as Roy and Stokes went hell for leather England’s batsmen really went berserk in the final eight overs when they clobbered 105 runs and enabled the team to get to a very healthy 350 for 7 in 50 overs Off spinner Ashwin once again failed to impress in this format but Jadeja made up for it While on this the role of spinners on good batting pitches with only four fielders permitted outside the circle has been reduced to being ornamental But that’s a subject for another day Catch the highlights of the 1st ODI between India and England at Pune here Written by Anuradha Mascarenhas | Pune | Published: February 11 2017 7:29 am The team of scientists at the IUCAA Top News Building the world’s third Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave observatory (LIGO) is an ambitious task one that scientists are excited about But they want to make sure that the ‘primary’ site at Maharashtra’s Hingoli district is the best location to help filter noise and interpret signals better The discovery of gravitational waves was announced last year on February 11 and within a week the Prime Minister’s Office had given in-principal approval to set up a LIGO in India “LIGO is an extremely sensitive instrument and we want to conduct all checks before making any official announcement” Dr Somak Raychoudhury director of the Inter-University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IUCAA) told The Indian Express While the site in Hingoli is the preferred one there are two other back-up sites “The final site will be finalised after scientific technical seismological and geo-technical surveys are conducted to confirm the suitability of the site” said Dr Raychoudhury Independent and widely separated observatories are crucial to determine the direction of the event causing gravitational waves and also to verify that the signals come from space not from some other local phenomenon To achieve this the LIGO laboratories are working closely with scientists at the IUCAA the Raja Ramanna Centre for Advanced Technology and the Institute for Plasma Research to set up a third such LIGO detector The additional detector will improve the ability of the global detector network to localise gravitational-wave sources “Already in the second observational run at the advanced LIGO detectors there have been ‘triggers’ of possible gravitational wave events IUCAA has now set up a state-of-the-art Tier 2 data centre for the LIGO Science collaboration where data from the second observational run that commenced in November last year is now being analysed online by researchers from India and worldwide” Professor Tarun Souradeep official spokesperson of LIGO-India and a senior professor at IUCAA told The Indian Express Professor Sanjeev Dhurandhar who has been leading Indian research and experimental efforts in the area for the last three decades said that already two such possible gravitational events have been detected “Our work fits in the extraction of gravitational signal from the noise There is a vast volume of data and sophisticated mathematical models are helping us reduce the error bar” said Dhurandhar The LIGO-India project apart from setting up a state-of-the-art gravitational wave observatory in India will motivate Indian students and young scientists to explore newer frontiers of knowledge and will add further impetus to scientific research in the country According to Souradeep the LIGO-India will be a frontier science experiment with major technological challenges involving laser optics vacuum and control system The project will bring the best in fundamental science and high-end technology available in Indian national research laboratories “We have launched a series of meetings on the road ahead that has brought researchers together from various institutions Two meetings have been held in August and December last year and there was promising participation from IITs and IISERs” said Souradeep For all the latest Pune News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Utkarsh Anand | Published: April 15 2013 1:24 am Related News The Supreme Court verdict on an appeal by Khalistan Liberation Force militant Devinderpal Singh Bhullar against rejection of his mercy plea has led to a debate on whether it would act as a precedent for other such cases There are 16 other convicts on the death row after denial of clemency by the President The 68-page Bhullar verdict expansively quotes from a catena of previous judicial pronouncements on the exercise of power of pardon by the President and a Governorand the scope of a subsequent judicial review The two-judge bench led by Justice G S Singhvi made two things very clear Firstthat the court had very limited power of judicial review after the rejection of a clemency plea This proposition can also be read as laying down that the court certainly had the authority to review the executive decisionbut only when it can be proved that the rejection of a plea was without application of mind to relevant factors or was founded on extraneous or irrelevant considerations or when it was vitiated due to mala fides or patent arbitrariness Thereforethe verdict definitely looks like a precedent when it propounds that the apex court could sit over a decision by the President or Governor in appropriate situations SecondBhullars verdict also ruled that a delay by the executive in deciding a mercy petition was not adequate ground to condone a death sentence into life term The court held that various other factors like magnitude of the crime and its impact on society justified imposing capital punishment and it would not interfere with the executives decision in such cases In the light of thisthe verdict again sets a precedent that a death row convict will have to put forth grounds more than just delay to seek courts indulgence Howeverit also means that the kind of offences that would disentitle a convict to get a reprieve will depend on the wisdom of the court Hencethe verdict appears to be a blend of precedent to a limited extent while reserving enough discretion with the top court to decide whether or not to interfere with a decision by the President or Governor Other death row convicts may need to mould their arguments in accordance with this
