review of cannabis and the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (Nice) has been commissioned to provide advice for clinicians by October next year “The Government will monitor the impact of the policy closely as the evidence base develops and review when the ACMD provides its final advice” The new rules have been brought in following several high profile stories of young epilepsy sufferers whose conditions appear to ease with the use of cannabis oil – including Billy Caldwell and Alfie DingleyWhile the campaign to legalise cannabis products for medicinal use has been raging on for some time a turning point game when the Home Office granted Billy Caldwell a special dispensation and urgent license for the use of cannabis oilBilly had his medicine confiscated on his return to the UK from Canada where the drug is legal but Home Secretary Sajid Javid says he has used an exceptional power as Home Secretary to get a license issued for the Caldwells according to Sky News After

climate change and combating the Trump agenda,expected to be released in the run up to state elections,put the Lingayat population at below 10 percent Hasty decision by Congress Harish Ramaswamy political analyst and professor at Karnataka University Dharwad believes the Congress has taken a hasty decision “They should have weighed the consequences in absence of clear statistics with respect to Veerashaivas and Lingayats Their decision to put the ball in Centre’s court while telling Lingayats that state has rewarded them with what they had asked for is a game that these people (Congress) are playing” he said adding “Perhaps this is not going to be very favourable to Congress” Ramaswamy said the Congress thinks they can challenge the leadership of former chief minister Yeddyurappa with this move “But we don’t know how this will play out” he concluded For many years now the Lingayats have backed BJP’s BS Yeddyurappa a Lingayat himself who was the state’s first BJP chief minister and is now the party president while Karnataka gears up for polls in May Reacting to the development Rambhapuri Mutt pontiff Someshwara Mahaswami denounced state government’s move as a “huge mistake” saying that Veerashaivas and Lingayats were the same “This is wrong Veerashaivism came first and Basavanna came later He did not establish the religion This is a diabolical plan by the state government which people will not accept The chief minister has not taken the right decision Veerashaivism has guru parampare (tradition of spiritual masters) while Basavanna is only a social reformer” the seer said He went on to say that it is very difficult to differentiate Hinduism from Veerashaiva-Lingayats “The Centre will not give in to this kind of chauvinism The state government is breaking us with its politics It is not easy to differentiate this religion from Hinduism” he stressed But cabinet minister Kulkarni begged to differ: “If people do not agree with Basavanna how can they be called Lingayats” he questioned referring to Veerashaivas There are enough hints that the issue would snowball into a major controversy as a special sabha called by the community leaders — known as

Ham on Sunday The Blues boss spoke passionately about the club’s former captain who died aged 61 on Wednesday following a cardiac arrest The Premier League announced that all matches this weekend will be preceded by a moment’s applause in memory of the ex-England international whose other clubs included Manchester United AC Milan and QPR File image of Antonio Conte AP Chelsea will make their own tribute to a man who worked as an assistant manager and coach with the Blues with memories in the match-day programme a book of condolence and a picture montage all planned ahead of Sunday’s match “It was tragic news for us” Conte told reporters on Friday “We are talking about a really good person I was lucky to know him and speak with him many times He was a legend for this club an ambassador for football “We are very sad because it is very difficult to accept this news We want to pass on to the family our deepest condolences and I think this is a big loss” While the game against the Hammers is expected to be an emotional afternoon Conte wants the fixture itself to be treated differently from the pre-match tributes “I think on Sunday we must be ready to make a great memory to Ray” he said “I think that this will be very important then there is the game But I see two different situations and it is not right to mix the situations We must have great respect for the tragedy and think to play football to give the best during the game” Chelsea lost 3-1 to Tottenham at Stamford Bridge last weekend to fall eight points behind Spurs in the race for a top-four spot and Champions League

must be our target now” With the fun and games that were essentially the Premier Badminton League (PBL) masala matches coming to an end the world’s shuttlers have hunkered down to serious business with a couple of ‘Masters’ (Level Three in the new dispensation) tournaments taking place in South-east Asia hard on the backs of each other There was token Indian representation in the Malaysia Masters that took place in Kuala Lumpur last week and the Indonesia Masters that kicks off in Jakarta from 23 January will also witness the participation of aunderstrength Indian contingent that is scheduled to exhibit its wares at the refurbished and renovated Istora Senayan in the heart of the Indonesian capital File images of PV Sindhu and Saina Nehwal Reuters It would appear that several Indian topnotchers including Kidambi Srikanth and HS Prannoy have taken longer than a week off at the conclusion of the breathless 23-day PBL even as some of the world’s top shuttlers had their noses to the grindstone in Kuala Lumpur Japan’s up-and-coming Kenta Nishimoto put in a stellar performance by nearly dethroning Danish world champion Viktor Axelsen in the final after bundling out veteran ace Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia in the opening round itself A 19-21 21-18 21-18 triumph over Lee was nearly mirrored in the title clash against Axelsen but the towering 6’ 4” Dane just about managed to hold on for a 21-13 21-23 21-18 win Earlier Axelsen had notched up a facile 21-17 21-8 second-round victory over World No 15 B Sai Praneeth who had been the flag-bearer of the Indian challenge in Kuala Lumpur but is not in the fray in Jakarta There was even more drama in the Malaysia Masters women’s singles when Thailand’s 2013 world champion Ratchanok Intanon claimed two top scalps from a No 5 position in the seedings’ list The strokeful 22-year-old Thai showed a new level of physical fitness to add to her courtcraft and rich array of strokes to pip Japan’s World No 2 Akane Yamaguchi at the semi-final stage at 21-15 16-21 21-19 before toppling Chinese Taipei’s World No 1 Tai Tzu Ying in an epic final at 21-16 14-21 24-22 All these fine players with the exception of Yamaguchi will be in the fray at the Senayan Sports Complex from Tuesday; and will be joined by the likes of Japan’s reigning world champion Nozomi Okuhara India’s PV Sindhu and Saina Nehwal Spain’s two-time former world champion and Olympic gold medalist Carolina Marin South Korea’s Sung Ji Hyun and China’s Chen Yufei and He Bingjiao In other words all the world’s top ten bar one Predictably Tai continues to occupy pride of place at the top of the draw by virtue of her runaway lead in points while Sindhu in the absence of Yamaguchi is seeded second Starting out with a none-too-difficult lung-opener against Indonesia’s Hanna Ramadini Sindhu could run into either one of two qualifiers in the second round before crossing swords in the quarter-finals with the winner of a section of the draw that includes Chen Yufei Nehwal and another Chinese Chen Xiaoxin Indeed Nehwal by virtue of being unranked in the top eight is just a dangerous floater in the draw and runs into Chen Yufei in her opening match Their victor clashes in the second round with the winner of the tie between Chen Xiaoxin and Bulgaria’s Linda Zetchiri All these players are bracketed in the bottom half of the draw which has on paper a quarter-final encounter between world champion Okuhara and the Malaysia Masters champion Intanon In other words the winner of the likely quarter-final between Sindhu and Chen Yufei is slated to bump into the Okuhara-Intanon winner in the penultimate round The top half of the draw is dominated by Tai and Marin who was undefeated for Hyderabad Hunters in the recent PBL and is seeded third in Jakarta Barring mishaps the top quarter should see a last-eight stage joust between the Taiwanese top seed and Korean Sung while the second quarter has Marin pitted against Chinese left-hander He Bingjiao In the men’s singles there would be no prizes for guessing the name of the player who has been given top seeding World champion Axelsen has been asked to take care of Chinese Taipei’s Hsu Jen Hao when he hits his first shuttle at the Istora Senayan and will then have to take on the winner of the clash between India’s Sameer Verma and dangerous Japanese floater Kazumasa Sakai At the opposite end of the draw Parupalli Kashyap promoted from the qualifying rounds occupies the spot vacated by his compatriot Srikanth a late withdrawal due to fitness issues Kashyap has a challenging opening outing against Malaysian southpaw Chong Wei Feng with the winner slated to clash against either Thailand’s Khosit Phetpradab or Denmark’s Hans Kristian Solberg Vittinghus in the second round Let it be recorded that the 32-year-old Vittinghus ranked 19th on the Badminton World Federation (BWF) ladder is currently in top form having reached the semi-finals of the Malaysia Masters after taking Hong Kong’s Wong Wing Ki Vincent Taiwan’s Wang Tzu Wei and Indonesia’s Anthony Sinisuka Gintingin stride before coming to grief at the hands of Japan’s Nishimoto in the penultimate reckoning All of which means that Kashyap will have to play out of his skin to get beyond the second round There is no other Indian in the main draw of the men’s singles but a couple are in contention for a spot from the qualifying tournament — Abhishek Yeligar and the bustling Subhankar Dey who had given a good account of himself in the recent PBL Yeligar meets Indonesia’s Vega Vio Nirwanda brought in from the standbys and also needs to get past former world No 4 Sony Dwi Kuncoro if he is to make the main draw Dey must show another local lad Panji Ahmed Maulana the exit door and must then sideline the winner of the first-round qualifying match between Frenchman Lucas Corvee and Taipei’s Kan Chao Yu No Indian features in the qualifying draw of the women’s singles but a couple of Indian pairs have made it to the main draw of the men’s doubles National champions Manu Attri and Sumeeth B Reddy have been given the task of tackling Taipei’s Lu Ching Yao and Yang Po Han; and if they win will have the giant Russian Vladimir Ivanov and his fellow-countryman Ivan Sozonov the 2016 All England champions barring their path in the second round The young Indian duo of Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty have an even tougher opening match as Japanese eighth seeds Takuto Inoue and Yuki Kaneko will present a strong challenge to their further progress These pairs are in the section of the draw topped by fourth-seeded Danes Mads Pieler Kolding and Mads Conrad-Petersen Surprisingly there is no Indian challenge in either the women’s doubles or the mixed doubles One would have thought that with Rankireddy already competing in the men’s doubles his regular mixed doubles partner Ashwini Ponnappa could have made the trip to Jakarta They would certainly have merited a spot in the main draw although other Indian mixed doubles pairs led by Pranaav Jerry Chopra and Manu Attri might have been hard put to win a spot in even the qualifying rounds All told spectator interest is likely to be concentrated on the women’s singles even more than on the men’s individual event although the Indonesian Masters will see the 2018 debut of the peerless Lin Dan and his compatriot Chen Long who have seven world championship titles and three Olympic gold medals between them New York: Amazoncom Inc’s march in retail and cloud computing showed no sign of slowing on Thursday as the company reported a
