first_imgOut-of-favour QPR striker Rob Hulse says he has not been told whether he will be made available for transfer before the new season starts.Hulse, whose Rangers contract has another year to run, was left out of the pre-season tour of Asia and has dropped further down the pecking order of forwards at Loftus Road.But the 32-year-old has been given no formal indication of the club’s plans for him.He said: “Obviously when you’re not included [in the Asia tour] it’s pretty clear that you’re not part of things.“But the club have said nothing to me and I’m just focusing on getting fit for the start of the season and seeing what happens.“To be honest I’ve not thought too much about my future.

Games Village mishap: Police register case of negligence

first_imgThe Delhi Police on Thursday registered a case of negligence and started investigating the circumstances leading to the embarrassing accident involving three members of the Ugandan contingent, including the chef de mission and the press attach, at the Commonwealth Games Village on Wednesday night.The incident had upset the Ugandan sports minister Charles Bakkabulindi and even apologies from his Indian counterpart M.S. Gill and Commonwealth Games Federation chief Mike Fennell could not pacify him.Gill had apologised for the incident to Bakkabulindi and Ugandan High Commissioner to India Nimisha Madhvani over the phone. But continuing with their protests, the Ugandans skipped the dinner hosted by Gill on Thursday night.Gill’s apologies failed to move the Ugandans as they wanted a personal meeting with him and External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna rather than a telephonic chat. They were unhappy also because of the delay and the way case was handled by the Indian authorities.Bakkabulindi had on Thursday sought an apology over the accident in which a tyre-killer at one of the Village entrances allegedly malfunctioned and hit the vehicle carrying the Ugandan officials. Apparently it happened as the security camera could not read the security pass on the vehicle.last_img read more

Will Getting Dugg on Digg.com Improve Your Grades?

Since Website Grader attempts the measure the marketing effectiveness of a website and social media sites like digg.com are becoming increasingly important as way to gauge audience interest, it seemed like a natural thing to check out the “digg-savviness” of a website.
