Steve Smith has got an insatiable appetite for runs like Sachin Tendulkar and Ricky Ponting, says Steve Waugh

first_imgLegendary Australia batsman Steve Waugh on Friday said current skipper Steve Smith’s hunger for runs is similar to Indian batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar and Kangaroo great Ricky Ponting.Waugh felt that Smith, who stroked an unbeaten 141 to steer the Kangaroos to a 10-wicket win in the Ashes opener in Brisbane, will rewrite the record books.”He’s almost going to rewrite the history books the way he is playing, 21 centuries in 57 Tests — and he didn’t do so well in his first 10 or so,” Waugh told reporters here.”He’s got an insatiable appetite for runs, a bit like (Sachin) Tendulkar and Ponting.Waugh, who sits third on Australia’s list of all-time Test run-scorers with 10,927 runs, termed Smith as “incredible”, adding to the chorus of former Australia skippers — including Ponting, Allan Border, Greg and Ian Chappell praising the youngster.”The great players just want to keep scoring runs, they love batting and that’s what he does well.”He concentrates well, overcomes plans well and just when you think you’ve got him in a weak moment he’ll find a way out of it,” the legendary batsman added.Already 1-0 up in the five-match Ashes rubber, Australia are all set to take on England in the historic day-night second Test at the Adelaide Oval from Saturday.last_img read more

Samsung tries to turn your refrigerator into Tinder

first_img Now playing: Watch this: 23 Tags “We hope people can meet under more honest or transparent circumstances with the help of the contents of the fridge, because that can tell you a lot about the personality,” said Elin Axelsson, PR manager at Samsung Electronics Nordic based in Sweden. She talked about combating the shallowness of filtered photos on social media and dating sites with something a bit more… organic.its-complicated-logo.jpgClick for more on love in the age of apps. Also, Axelsson noted, there are tons of single people in Sweden, where the idea originated. Nearly half of all households in the country consist of single adults without kids, according to Eurostat, the European Union’s statistical office. Who knows? Maybe this is what gets young single Swedes together. The app, though, is available worldwide. Although online dating has been around for decades, its popularity has gone more mainstream in the past several years. The Statistic Brain Research Institute found that more than 90 percent of the 54.3 million singles in the US have tried their luck finding love, or whatever else, online.While judging love interests based on their taste in cheese or deli meat might seem like one of those April Fools’ stunts tech companies like to pull, niche dating sites are definitely a thing. You can find apps based on political or religious preferences. There are sites for the tall, the affluent, the gluten-intolerant, the Canadian. Trek Passions, a site for sci-fi fans, wants users to “love long and prosper.” And let’s not forget Farmers’ Only, in case you are “single in the country.”Hungry for loveHalf-consumed jars of condiments, cans of soda, bags of salad greens, a raw ginger root, ham — when you start swiping around on Refrigerdating, you’re getting a glimpse into the way people live. And while the app is an entertaining promotion for the Family Hub, factoring in a potential partner’s eating habits isn’t that goofy a thought. refrigerdating-2Your fridge could help you fill your stomach and your heart.  Chris Monroe/CNET “Food is really a part of our lifestyle these days, and there are so many nuances of diet — there are people who are gluten-free or vegan — and often [they’re] most understood by someone who also has that diet,” said Laurie Davis, an online dating coach and author of the book Love @ First Click.Eating habits can indicate more in common than what’s on your plate, Davis said. Love in this HubRefrigerdating is available through a browser, so it’ll work on whatever phone you have. Samsung hasn’t said how many people are using it, just that they’re signing up. Be warned: The concentration of users at the moment seems to be in Sweden. Developer Peter Simonsson said the team opted for swiping since it’s a common format for dating apps like Tinder and Bumble. Samsung even worked with a relationship expert when creating the app. Samsung recommends you don’t stage your fridge to try to attract dates — be yourself and embrace the leftovers, stale bread and alarming amount of fizzy water. You never know. The right brand of almond milk might get you the love of your life. It’s Complicated: This is dating in the age of apps. Having fun yet?Culture: Your hub for everything from film and television to music, comics, toys and sports. CNET may get a commission from retail offers. Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator Culture Appliances Mobile Apps Mentioned Above Samsung 4-Door Flex Family Hub Refrigerator (Stainless Steel) Could you find love in your fridge? Chris Monroe/CNET The way to your heart might actually be through your fridge.That’s what Samsung is hoping, at least. While you might mostly associate Samsung with phones, tablets and TVs, the electronics giant is trying to make inroads into your love life by launching a dating app called Refrigerdating. Yup. Refrigerdating. The free app works with the Samsung Family Hub Refrigerator, a $4,000 appliance with a touchscreen on the door that you can use to view the family’s schedule, and an ingredient-tracking camera that lets you double-check whether you’re out of milk. With the app, you take a photo of the inside of your fridge to share, and you can swipe right or left based on how the contents of someone else’s speak to you. Never fear, though, you can also just take a photo with your phone if you don’t have the Family Hub.The idea is that what’s in there, whether it’s moldy leftovers or an enticing collection of craft beer, could provide a more authentic look at who you are and how you live. And ideally, keep you far away from those monsters who refrigerate their honey.

Painting forty years that brushed past IndoKorea

first_imgCommemorating the forty years long diplomatic ties between Korea and India, Spirit of Forms, an art exhibition is set out to feature acclaimed artists from both the countries. Curated by Minjoo lee and Kalicharan Gupta, the artistic melange will be on display, carrying paintings from twenty nine Korean and Indian artists from 4th May onwards.Entwining the essence of the art forms, the exhibition brings across the love and friendship between the people of the two nations. None of the artistic masterpieces is static; none a mere repitition of the already arrived at forms. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The message is clear; art is a journey, for art’s sake; artistics go on through the melee of crossroads and intersections without halting at stops. Its evident in the works of Jai Zharotia and Niren Sen Gupta, the participants in this event; while Jai delights us with apparitions of poetic strangeness every time he puts brush to canvas or paper, Niren revisits chapters of our own spiritual odyssey, giving peace an honoured place in his artistic ruminations. The cultural heritage of Korea coupled with ancient artistic traditions of India will be a treat to watch for the art lovers in the capital.
