Stop jumping around at Wagah Border and perform on field: Shoaib Akhtar to Hasan Ali

first_imgPakistan were completely outclassed by India at Old Trafford on Sunday as they succumbed to an 89-run (DLS) defeat. It was Pakistan’s 7th successive loss to India in the tournament’s history.Under overcast conditions, Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed opted to field first but his bowlers looked clueless against aggressive Indian batsmen who went on to pile up 336 for 5 off 50 overs. Besides, Pakistan were sloppy on the field and it left their fans fuming.Chasing the huge total, Pakistan lost Imam-ul-Haq early and managed only 38 runs in the first 10 overs and soon collapsed to 165 for 6 to eventually lose the rain-interrupted game by a massive margin.A dismal display in all the three departments from Pakistan players did not go down with former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar fuming.Speaking on his YouTube channel, Shoaib Akhtar slammed Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed and called him a ‘brainless’ skipper and then one by one took a shot at every other Pakistani player.Lashing out at fast bowler Hasan Ali, Akhtar pointed out to Ali’s antics at the Attari-Wagah Border where he performed his signature wicket-taking gesture.”Hasan Ali, who never shies away from jumping around at the Wagah border, couldn’t apply himself when it mattered the most. Many of his deliveries were short-pitched. His mindset seems to be: I want to keep playing T20s and the PSL. But in the World Cup 2019, we can see that he has not shown any pace or swing that could trouble batsmen,” said Shoaib Akhtar.Critcizing Sarfarz, Akhtar said, “The game was half-won by Pakistan when Sarfaraz won the toss, but he tried hard to lose the match. Toss was very crucial and even if Pakistan had made 260, with their bowling, they could have defended it. So I think it was just brainless captaincy. It’s a very saddening and disheartening performance from the Pakistan team captain. I wanted to see shades of Imran Khan in him but it’s too late for him now.”advertisementHasan Ali proved to be the most expenisive Pakistan bowler on Sunday as he leaked 84 runs in the 9 overs he bowled while picked a wicket.After one victory in the 5 games, including a wash-out, Pakistan have 3 points to be placed among the bottom two on the World Cup points table.Also Read | Kuch fitness nai, kuch nai: Pakistan fans blame burger for defeat to IndiaAlso Read | World Cup 2019: Shahid Afridi credits IPL after India beat PakistanAlso Read | India best team in World Cup 2019, way better than Pakistan: Sachin TendulkarAlso Read | Rohit Sharma’s cheeky reply to Pakistani journalist will make you smilelast_img read more

Protecting Your Business Documents

first_imgOctober 14, 2005 4 min read Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. Businesses in the United States make more than 1 billion photocopies every day and spend more than $25 billion a year to file, store and retrieve their paper documents. In many cases, records and information systems often represent as much as 50 percent of the total cost of doing business.With the technologies that are available today, however, it doesn’t make good business sense to spend large amounts of capital to store and maintain hard copy information. As with all aspects of a company’s business, using technologies that will increase productivity and reduce costs is vital to your profitability and success.Because of the cost-savings available, many companies are changing their attitudes toward data storage and are looking at innovative ways to handle the flow of data. Today, there are several inventive and cost-effective technologies available that can streamline the processing and storing of hard-copy data, which, in turn, will save you money–money that you can use to improve systems and invest in the future of your business. Let’s take a look at one of these new systems.Defining the SolutionDigital archiving, also known as scan-to-file, is one of the best methods around for processing and storing documents. Simply put, digital archiving is the process of converting paper information to a digital representation of the original document. These highly cost-effective conversions allow information to be stored and accessed easily, enabling companies to save time, storage space, money and resources, and increase their productivity and security.Over time, digitally storing information will reduce the costs of document storage. It will reduce employee workload associated with filing, retrieving and re-filing paper documents. Additionally, it provides easy access to search, retrieve, read, print and e-mail imaged files.Digital archiving also allows for expedient file transmission over the internet or an internal network. And it creates a flexible, electronic database of corporate documents, such as financial statements, required regulatory documentation, client and patient files, tax and legal documents–all of which can be password-protected to restrict printing and content extraction.And there’s more good news: The process is simple. Information is scanned and stored on one of a number of forms of media, most often on CD-ROMs, but also on hard disks or other file formats. You then store the digital data in a secure location, either onsite or away from your business. The digitally stored information can easily be retrieved by simply loading a CD-ROM or disk onto any computer. The document appears just as it did in its original hard copy form and can be saved to the computer, e-mailed or printed.Digital archiving enables companies to put unlimited amounts of information onto CDs. Imagine taking 35,000 pages of paper and converting it to three CDs.If you think digital archiving may be right for your company, here are a few questions to ask your visual communications partner:How is information scanned? Who does it and how long does it take?Information can either be hand-scanned or fed into a scanner based on the type of data being scanned. Scanning should be done by a team of professionally trained and certified digital specialists, who know how to scan and archive your important documents. Scanning times will vary based on the amount of information being converted. For example, 1,200 pages can take up to four hours to complete.Is the information secure while it’s being scanned for digital archiving?Most likely it is, but you need to ensure that the vendor has a dedicated and secure digital archiving imaging area designed with your sensitive documents in mind. Additionally, you need to verify that the information won’t be shared with any outside source, and your vendor should return all documents upon completion. In some cases, you and the vendor may determine that the scanning should be done at your location.Where is the information stored? Will the CDs be given to me to store or will I need to have the vendor to store them in a secure location?Typically, your vendor should store the information on CDs that will be returned to you for storage.What format will the digitized documents be in?At a minimum, documents should be converted to PDF because that’s the widely accepted format for digitized information. Additionally, PDF formatting is approved and in use by a host of local, state and federal agencies. However, based on your needs, files can also be created in Word and other industry-specific software.Kevin Cushing is the CEO of Salt Lake City-based AlphaGraphics Inc., a franchise network that works with people to plan, produce and manage their visual communications.
