For the third time in Grenada’s history, the New National Party (NNP), led by Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell, has completely swept the polls. In the general elections held in that country on Tuesday, the NNP secured all 15 parliamentary seats.From the reaction of Grenadian-Americans in Central and South Florida, the results of the election is most welcomed.“Even Mitchell’s opponents would agree that this man and his government has been doing progressive things for Grenada,” said Merlene Bishop of Kissimmee. “I left my country in the mid 60’s after the 1983 uprising and vowed never to go back But from the strides the NNP government has made over the past four ear I am ready to return.”Linton Young of Port St Lucie comments were brief, but nonetheless pointed. “The Mitchell government didn’t break anything so why change it. Put them all back.”In accepting victory, Mitchel called n the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to be part of the social partners that will chart the way forward for the tri-island state.“It feels good,” the returning prime minister said after the preliminary results showed that the party had swept all the seats in Parliament. “The people of my country has shown the level of confidence in the way I have governed, it is a humbling experience.” “Whatever achievement we have had I first have to give thanks to Almighty God and the people of this country,” Mitchell said, adding that the election was the “most stress free I have ever had in my 34 years in politics.Mitchell said that unlike 2013 when he won the general election and had no idea as to the state of the local economy, this time around, “I don’t feel the pressure because I am in the seat and I know what the plans are.“Therefore, I feel very confident I will meet the aspirations of the people of this country,” he said, noting however that “to whom a lot is given, a lot is expected.”Mitchell easily won the St. George North West seat which he has been representing for more than three decades, defeating the NDC’s Alli Anthony Brian Dowden by a 2546 to 406 margin.Mitchell sought to dispel the notion that the clean sweep would result in the government having a free hand in running the affairs of the country.“You can’t ignore that 20,000 people voted against you…the task is to bring that element into the decision-making process,” he said, reiterating his call for the NDC to join the social partners in “dealing with the problems of the country.”Leader of the NDC, Nazim Burke, who led the party into an election for the first time, failed to win his seat.A national rally was scheduled to be held on Wednesday to celebrate the victory of the NNP.
DHAKA, Bangladesh (AP):Off-spinner Mehedi Hasan claimed a Bangladesh Test match record of 12-159 as his side secured a first-ever win against England – a comfortable 108-run victory – to level the series 1-1 yesterday.Mehedi took 6-77 in the second innings to rip through England, which lost all 10 wickets in the post-lunch session in its pursuit of 273 runs to win.Left-arm spinner Shakib Al Hasan complemented Mehedi’s effort with 4-49 with three wickets in four balls to help the side earn the victory inside three days.”It is a very big achievement in Bangladesh’s Test cricket history,” said Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim. “It came against a very good England side, but there will be a time when we will win a series 2-0 against any big team. This is a start.”England captain Alastair Cook made 59 and Ben Duckett scored 54 as they kept the side unscathed before lunch, reaching 100-0.”Very hard (to explain). 100-0 was a really good session. I was really pleased with the way Ben played,” Cook said.”We possibly showed our inexperience in those conditions, even though I was out there experiencing it – it was amazing the difference before tea and after tea. You lose a couple of wickets, then men come round the bat, crowd gets into it – being able to deal with and get through it – you know it doesn’t last forever, but that half an hour, 40 minutes is crucial, and we just weren’t good enough to be able to get through.”Mehedi struck with the first ball of the final session, dismissing Duckett with a delivery that kept low.NO LOOKING BACKFrom then on, Bangladesh never looked back. Only Stokes, apart from Cook and Duckett, reached double digits as Mehedi and Shakib made inroads at regular intervals.”From the time we knew England were coming, we planned to make wickets that would help our spinners and trouble the English batsmen. Here our bowlers executed our plans and the batsmen did well too, which made this win possible,” Mushfiqur added.Shakib Al Hasan removed Joe Root for one as Bangladesh spinners used the crack of the pitch perfectly to leave England in tatters.Mehedi fittingly ended the match with the wicket of Steven Finn and to claim five or more wickets in the first two Tests three times. He also eclipsed left-arm spinner Enamul Haque Junior’s 18 wickets to be the highest wicket-taker (19) in a series for Bangladesh.Bangladesh earlier set England a 273-run target to win the second Test after it was bowled out for 296 shortly after lunch on the third day.Opener Imrul Kayes made 78, while Mahmudullah scored 47 to give Bangladesh a fighting chance of levelling the series on an increasingly turning, deteriorating wicket.The highest successful chase in the fourth innings at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium was 209-1 by England against the same opponent in 2010.

November 18, 2016 Entrepreneur Staff Editorial Director Mark Cuban Hates on Anti-Hate Twitter Tools Earlier this week, Twitter rolled out a new tool that it hopes will help the site’s ongoing harassment problems. A beefed-up mute feature is now able to filter phrases, keywords and hashtags that a user deems offensive, and can mute entire threads if desired. The users will stop receiving notifications from any nasty threads they chose without removing the thread from their timeline or blocking anyone.In short, while it doesn’t stop anyone from writing vile tweets, it prevents the target of attacks from seeing them. Is that enough? According to Mark Cuban, no.Linking to a story about the new tool on Buzzfeed, Cuban commented: Many of Cuban’s 5.9 million Twitter followers jumped in the conversation, asking what he thought would be a more effective solution.Some offered other suggestions, which began to highlight how difficult this problem is to solve.Eventually, the thread found its way to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, who replied:Related: Jack Dorsey Explains Why Elon Musk Has One of the Best Twitter Accounts Cuban accepted this, and while he had Jack’s attention, lobbed one request that every Twitter user can get behind:Jack didn’t get back to him on that one.
