india steady after losing two early wickets

India lost two wickets early in their chase of the 229-run target against hosts England. Punam Raut and Harmanpreet Kaur steadied the ship with a 50 run partnership.Earlier, India turned up in a manner befitting the occasion and stopped England at 228 for seven in the final of the ICC Women's World Cup, leaving themselves with a realistic chance of doing what seemed unreal at the start of the tournament.The coin landing in the opponents' favour at the toss was hardly a deterrent as India went about the task in a professional manner. Leading the show was the redoubtable Jhulan Goswami, who scythed through the English middle-order.A proven performer for far too long, Jhulan delivered with three wickets in the most widely watched game in the history of women's cricket.

promotion and the ipad pro faq: everything you need to know!

Apple's new adaptive screen refresh technology is going to change how we look at devices.If I had to pick the WWDC announcement that made my week, it'd have to be Apple's newest display technology, ProMotion.

But simply saying "faster" doesn't do justice to how ProMotion is going to not only improve the iPad Pro experience — or the experience of Apple's other computing platforms in the future.Here's everything you ever wanted to know about ProMotion — and then some. (Because I can't help but geek out about display technology.)What is ProMotion?Apple describes it as such:A new [display] technology that delivers refresh rates of up to 120Hz for fluid scrolling, greater responsiveness and smoother motion

Electronic signs have replaced departure boards.

ProRail via TwitterDutch rail company ProRail has launched an urgent appeal to people not to take selfies of themselves posing on or next to railway tracks.An average of nine people are caught walking on or too close to the railway and they are the biggest external factor for delays, ProRail spokesman Jaap Eikelboom told the AD.‘It could be people taking the dog out or taking a short cut, but increasingly, we see people taking photographs,’ he said.In 2012, railway staff reported 2,353 incidents in which people were walking on the tracks.
