India’s slip catching an area of concern, admits Cheteshwar Pujara

first_imgIndia’s poor slip catching was being papered over by the tons of runs the batsmen had scored in the past one year but fluffing three regulation chances in the drawn third Test against Sri Lanka has raised a few questions. (Kohli will be rated one of the greatest captains if India do well overseas: Ganguly to India Today)Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma and skipper Virat Kohli dropped easy catches in the slip cordon during the third Test and Cheteshwar Pujara, who is now being prepared for the specialist position, had to do a bit of firefighting for his colleagues in the post-match press conference.Pujara put his hand first up and admitted that slip catching indeed has been a problem.”To be honest we haven’t fielded well and I would accept that. At the same time there have been injuries with someone like M Vijay, who used to be at first slip didn’t, not playing for six months. So we had to replace Vijay with someone else. We haven’t taken many catches but we will definitely get better at it,” Pujara said.He added, “Overall, the Indian team has improved as fielding unit, but slip fielding is something we are still looking to improve,” the Saurashtra ‘Run Machine’ said when asked about the missed chances.When asked if the reason for the misses had been identified, Pujara said he didn’t have a clue.”It’s a difficult question to answer as I don’t know technically what is going wrong. I do agree that we haven’t taken enough catches but we are working hard. To be honest, we put in a lot of hard work in our fielding, especially we know catching is very important.advertisement”All players standing in the slips are taking 50 to 100 catches. So we are trying to improve ourselves and eventually results will come,” a hopeful Pujari said.Ajinkya Rahane, who normally fields at slip for the spinners, was stationed at gully for the pacers. So why has Rahane not been placed at the conventional slip position?”Ajinkya has been fielding at gully for quite a long time. We don’t want to disturb him from there. And the way he is fielding when the spinners are bowling, he is anyway in the slip cordon.”He is set there so we can’t keep on changing fielders. When he’s at gully, he knows the angles and he has an idea of where to stay, when he starts fielding at gully.”Pujara said that discussions are on regarding who all would be fielding at the slip cordon in South Africa.”We are having a chat about it and we will assign a few players throughout the away series. We will prepare a few players who will be standing at the slips. We will discuss when we reach South Africa but we are already talking about that,” he said.last_img read more

Struggling Raiders trade Amari Cooper to Cowboys for first-round pick

first_imgShare on WhatsApp Cooper was the fourth-overall pick by the Raiders out of Alabama three years ago. He started his career with consecutive 1,000-yard seasons and had two 100-yard games this season, but had just two targets and one catch since the second of those games. Dallas receivers have just one 100-yard game combined through seven games, by Cole Beasley in a Week 6 win over Jacksonville. Cooper is currently under concussion protocol after suffering a head injury in the Raiders’ loss to Seattle in London two weeks ago. Oakland, who have started the season 1-5 under new coach Jon Gruden, now appear to be rebuilding for the future.

Man who killed children struggles with anger management psychiatrist

first_imgCOQUITLAM, B.C. – A man found not criminally responsible for killing his three children because of a mental disorder is making slow progress but still faces serious anger issues, a psychiatrist says.Dr. Marcel Hediger told a British Columbia Review Board hearing Wednesday that it’s unlikely he would recommend Allan Schoenborn be granted supervised outings into the community within the next year, saying he would first need to see a sustained period of at least six months of healthy anger management.The board granted the director of a psychiatric hospital in Coquitlam, B.C., the discretion to allow Schoenborn escorted outings into the community two years ago, but he still hasn’t been allowed to leave.“Mr. Schoenborn quite consistently doesn’t feel he has a significant anger-management issue,” Hediger told the three-person panel.“He does say he has a short fuse, but that is the extent to which Mr. Schoenborn acknowledges he has a significant management issue.”Hediger said he believes anger played a role when Schoenborn stabbed his 10-year-old daughter Kaitlynne and smothered his sons Max and Cordon, eight and five, at the family’s home in Merritt in April 2008. Schoenborn has repeatedly denied that anger factored into the killings, Hediger added.The hearing ended Wednesday without a conclusion and another date to complete the arguments hasn’t been set.The brother of Schoenborn’s former spouse, Mike Clarke, told reporters during a break in proceedings about the toll the process is taking on his family.“It’s a day-by-day thing for my sister,” he said. “As time goes by it’s getting a little worse for her.”It is clear Schoenborn needs a lot of treatment, Clarke added, saying he wants the man who killed his niece and nephews locked up “until the day he eventually passes away from old age.”Crown attorney Wendy Dawson asked the three-person review panel to reverse a 2015 decision giving the hospital director the discretion to authorize supervised excursions, arguing Schoenborn poses too much of a risk.She said Schoenborn’s anger issues are entrenched and that any earlier progress was a ploy to earn privileges from the review board.Dawson said Schoenborn had gone through nearly three years of cumulative counselling for anger management and he still struggles with applying his lessons in the heat of the moment.Schoenborn attended the review hearing wearing a collared, blue work shirt and torn jeans. He spent most of the time staring into his lap and slowly rocking back and forth in his seat.Schoenborn interrupted with an unintelligible comment while Dawson was questioning Hediger about the night of the killings.“Altruistic was found,” Schoenborn said. “This has got to be said.”Barry Long, chairman of the review panel, told Schoenborn he would have his turn to offer his version of events.Schoenborn apologized, agreeing with Long’s suggestion everyone take a five-minute break.Both the lawyer representing the hospital director and counsel for Schoenborn want the conditions imposed in the 2015 review board decision left unchanged.Two years after the children were killed, a B.C. Supreme Court judge ruled Schoenborn was not criminally responsible because he was experiencing psychosis and believed he was protecting his children from sexual abuse, though no evidence was heard suggesting they were being abused.When the review board granted him escorted community outings, it said Schoenborn was diagnosed as having a delusional disorder, a substance abuse disorder and paranoid personality traits, but that his symptoms have been in remission for years.The Crown has also filed a separate court application to have Schoenborn designated a high-risk accused, which would end the possibility of the outings and extend the time between annual review hearings up to three years.The former Conservative government used Schoenborn as an example in 2014 to introduce the new designation, which can be applied to people found not criminally responsible because of mental disorder.Schoenborn’s next appearance in that case is scheduled for mid-June in the Supreme Court of British Columbia.— Follow @gwomand on Twitterlast_img read more

Trudeau considering more action to keep foreign dumped steel out of Canada

first_imgPrime Minister Justin Trudeau admits he still has some questions about what proposed US tariffs on our steel and aluminum exports could have on Canadian companies.Trudeau made the comments in Hamilton, after meeting with local steelworkers.While this tour is mainly aimed at reassuring workers, the prime minister tells CHCH News that he’s also speaking with industry leaders about what the global tariffs could mean for Canada moving forward.“How will that impact the Canadian steel industry? The Canadian aluminum industry? Will that create a privileged access for us in the US market? Are there things that we can be doing?”Trudeau says he has already spoken with President Donald Trump about foreign steel dumping and is willing to take further action, if necessary, to protect our industry.“Whether it’s Chinese or Russian or wherever, we’ve actually strengthened both the controls and the sort of barriers to that easy entry.”The prime minister adds he is still working hard to gain a permanent exemption to these tariffs and has made it clear the US argument of national security makes no sense.Tuesday, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland is in Washington for a series of meetings to push our message on tariffs and NAFTA.last_img read more

ICC opens hearing on war crimes charges against Darfurian rebel

The International Criminal Court (ICC) today began a hearing into whether to confirm war crimes charges against a rebel leader accused of having directed the deadly September 2007 attack against peacekeepers in the war-ravaged Sudanese region of Darfur.Bahr Idriss Abu Garda is charged with three war crimes – murder, attacks against a peacekeeping mission and pillaging – allegedly committed when 1,000 rebels attacked the Haskanita camp in South Darfur state on 29 September 2007.Twelve peacekeepers serving with the African Union Mission in Sudan (AMIS), a predecessor to the joint UN-African Union peacekeeping mission, known as UNAMID, were killed and eight others wounded in the attack.Mr. Abu Garda, who commands a splinter group of the rebel Justice and Equality Movement (JEM), appeared before The Hague-based ICC today. If the charges are confirmed at this hearing, he will then face trial.Mr. Abu Garda is the first person to appear before the court voluntarily in response to a summons, with the court’s judges deeming an arrest unnecessary since they believed he would appear of his own accord.“The presence of Abu Garda at the confirmation of charges hearing shows his willingness to cooperate with the court,” said ICC Registrar Silvana Arbia.The rebel leader, 46, is also the first to appear in relation to the investigation into the situation in Darfur, which was referred to The Hague-based Court by the Security Council in 2005.“The peacekeepers were deployed to serve and protect civilians in Haskanita. Instead, they were murdered,” ICC Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo said last week.“The attack had consequences for the delivery of humanitarian aid as well as safety and security in the region. This cannot go unpunished,” he stressed. At today’s hearing, the Prosecutor was tasked with supporting each charge against Mr. Abu Garda.The pre-trial chamber will have 60 days from the end of the confirmation hearing to render its decision to confirm the charges, either in whole or in part; decline to confirm them; ask for further evidence; or amend the charges.If the charges are confirmed, the case would then be transferred to a trial chamber, which will conduct the trial phase of the proceedings.Mr. Abu Garda first appeared before the ICC in May, when he was informed of the crimes he is alleged to have committed and of his rights.In March, an arrest warrant was issued for Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, the first sitting head of State to be indicted by the Court, for alleged war crimes committed in Darfur.An estimated 300,000 people have died and another 3 million have been displaced in Darfur, where rebels have been fighting Government forces and allied Arab militiamen, known as the Janjaweed, since 2003. 19 October 2009The International Criminal Court (ICC) today began a hearing into whether to confirm war crimes charges against a rebel leader accused of having directed the deadly September 2007 attack against peacekeepers in the war-ravaged Sudanese region of Darfur. read more

Tiger Woods Bursts Into Lead at Torrey Pines With

Rocco Mediate said Tiger Woods cannot hit the shots he used to when he was at the peak of his game. Tiger Woods went out Friday in the second round at Torrey Pines and hit shots like he used to hit when he was at the top of his game. And so, he leads the Farmers Insurance Open at 11-under after crafting a beautiful 65 that included an eagle on No. 18.Now comes the hard part.With a lead going into the weekend, Woods was all but money during the height of his dominance. He had won 30 of 32 times that he held a 36-hole lead. But of the last six times he has held that advantage, he has won just twice. Not good, especially for him.“We have a long way to go,” Woods said. “It’s a pretty tough course.”Woods shot a first-round 4-under 68 on the harder South Course in Round 1. On the easier North Course, Woods was awesome, despite a steady rain. He leads over Graham DeLaet, Josh Teater and Ross Fisher, all who sit at eight under.The timing of Woods’ play was almost on purpose to counter Mediate.“Nothing he did ever surprised me,” Mediate said to USA TODAY. “He’s that good. But he can’t do it anymore because his golf swing is different. It doesn’t produce the shots he used to hit,” Mediate added. “Do I think he’s finished winning majors? No. Does he have as much desire? Yes. But you could ask him to hit any shot blindfolded back in the day and he could. Now he can’t. I know what I’m seeing. I know what I saw before. And it’s not the same.”Maybe not, but he sure looked like the old Woods Friday.He birdied the first two holes then closed out the front 9 by sandwiching birdies around a bogey on No. 8. He parred the first four holes on the back and then made birdie on the par 5 No. 14 and the 174-yard par 3 at No. 17. Finally, he closed the round by getting on the 516-yard par 5 closing hole and making the eagle putt to send him into the weekend looking as strong as he has in some time. read more

Trump touts economy nationalist policies ahead of US elections

Reuters/Carlos BarriaBELGRADE, Mont. (Reuters) – President Donald Trump touted U.S. economic growth and his nationalist policies as he rallied with Republican candidates ahead of Tuesday’s U.S. congressional elections as Democratic former Vice President Joe Biden urged voters to reject division.Control of both houses of the U.S. Congress, currently dominated by Republicans, and 36 governors’ offices will be at stake when Americans vote in Tuesday’s elections. Interest has been unusually high for a non-presidential election year, with early voting running well ahead of past cycles.Opinion polls and nonpartisan forecasters generally show Democrats with a strong chance of taking the 23 additional seats they would need for a majority in the House of Representatives, which they could use to launch investigations into Trump’s administration and block his legislative agenda.Republicans are favored to retain control of the Senate, whose powers include confirming Trump’s nominations to lifetime seats on the Supreme Court.“America is booming. Republicans passed a massive tax cut for working families and we will soon follow it up with another 10 percent tax cut for the middle class,” Trump said, standing in a Belgrade, Montana, airfield with Air Force One as a backdrop.Last December, Trump signed into law the largest tax overhaul since the 1980s, which slashed the corporate rate to 21 percent from 35 percent and temporarily reduced the tax burden for most individuals as well.The appearance was intended to boost the campaign of Matt Rosendale, the Republican state auditor challenging Democratic U.S. Senator Jon Tester. Trump called out Tester for his vote against his most recent Supreme Court nominee, saying “what he did was terrible.”Republicans in many competitive suburban districts have tried to focus their campaign messages on the robust economic growth, though in his campaign appearances Trump has also focused on his hard-line immigration stance as he looks to stem the illegal and legal flow of people into the United States.Biden campaigned in Ohio on Saturday in support of Democrats U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown and gubernatorial candidate Richard Cordray.“We’re in a battle for America’s soul,” Biden, his voice faint and scratchy, told a crowd at a high school south of Cleveland. “We Democrats have to make it clear who we are. We choose hope over fear, we choose unity over division, we choose our allies over our enemies and we choose truth over lies.”Congressional candidates campaigned in a whirlwind close across the country: in Virginia, Democrat Jennifer Wexton greeted voters in the Manassas Veterans Day parade; in New Jersey Republican Jay Webber met them in a diner, and in Minnesota Republican Pete Stauber went door to door urging people to vote.EARLY VOTING UP SHARPLYAs of Friday night, almost 32.4 million people had cast ballots early, according to The Election Project at the University of Florida, which tracks turnout. That is up more than 50 percent from the 20.5 million early votes cast in all of 2014, the last federal election when the White House was not at stake.Trump on Friday appeared in West Virginia with Patrick Morrisey, who is seeking to unseat Democratic Senator Joe Manchin. They marked his third campaign appearance in West Virginia and fourth in Montana.Some analysts said the president’s repeated visits to states that he won in 2016 were a signal Republicans were worried about keeping control of Congress.“It’s not a good sign for Republicans if they have to spend all these resources for a seat they shouldn’t have to be fighting for,” said Simon Haeder, a professor of political science at West Virginia University, in a phone interview. “That should be a solid Republican seat.”In Florida, Trump is due to campaign for Governor Rick Scott, who is trying to unseat Democratic U.S. Senator Bill Nelson, and U.S. Representative Ron DeSantis, who is running for governor against Democratic Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum. read more

Hatchet threat against MEP candidate to be examined Rabbitte

first_imgSenator Higgins has already made a complaint about the comments to gardaí.She said that while she could not be sure of the source of the threats, the person making them was “certainly” a supporter of an independent candidate and Sinn Féin — charges categorically rejected by Sinn Féin.Referring to the source of the comments, Rabbitte said that while “colleagues have views on that… Views are not good enough”.“I think it would be foolish of me to say I can put my finger directly on the source.”The Minister was speaking at the launch of a new report setting out a range of recommendations for how the Government should deal with the threat of online bullying.It includes a proposal to update legislation to include ‘electronic communications’ within the definition of measures dealing with “the sending of messages which are grossly offensive, indecent, obscene or menacing”.Read: Primary school kids MUST be taught the dangers of cyber-bullying, Govt advised COMMUNICATIONS MINISTER PAT Rabbitte has indicated that social media threats made against candidates in the course of the recent local and European elections will be followed-up by his Department and that of Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald.He said that certain messages received by candidates in the campaign amounted to intimidation and harassment, and that neither were acceptable in a democratic society.Labour senator Lorraine Higgins said in the wake of last month’s elections that she had been subjected to a Facebook death threat whereby someone told her she would be “hatcheted in the face”.While not referring to the specifics of the case, Rabbitte said:“A number of colleagues expressed the view that I or the Minister for Justice should take such steps that are open to us to see if we can identify the source for what some candidates put up with.“I would like to think that some of it can be tracked and traced… Whether it can or not I don’t know. But obviously it would be great if it could, because I’m not talking about casual commentary by someone who’s angry at a particular measure, I’m talking about a selection of treatment that’s not acceptable.”last_img read more

Islande une éruption volcanique touche le pays les vidéos

first_imgIslande : une éruption volcanique touche le pays, les vidéosIslande – Ce 20 mars 2010, aux alentours de minuit, l’Islande était touchée par une éruption volcanique. Heureusement, plus de peur que de mal, aucune victime n’a été recensée.Le volcan Eyjafjöll, situé dans le glacier Eyjafjallajökull, est entré en éruption le 20 mars dernier. Il était resté inactif près de deux siècles, sa dernière éruption datant du 19 décembre 1821. Si cet évènement n’inquiète pas les scientifiques et les autorités, ceux-ci craignent qu’il soit en fait un avertissement à une prochaine éruption du volcan Katla, qui serait bien plus dramatique car elle entraînerait de très fortes inondations en faisant fondre une partie du glacier.À lire aussiLe Vésuve, ce redoutable volcan dont l’éruption a détruit Pompéi600 personnes ont été évacuées, elles peuvent regagner leur logement dès aujourd’hui, hormis les habitants de quatorze fermes où la situation s’avère encore trop dangereuse. Ces personnes avaient surtout été évacuées par crainte que les glaciers ne fondent à cause de la température de la lave, qui pouvait atteindre plus de 1.000°C. Toutefois, l’hypothèse de la fonte des glaces a été infirmée, l’éruption ne provoquera pas de montée des eaux.Comme on peut le voir sur les vidéos, encore peu nombreuses, qui rendent compte du phénomène, des éruptions de magma se sont élevées jusqu’à 200 mètres. Il s’agissait d’une éruption assez importante mais sans gravité, aucun blessé ni aucun décès n’a été constaté.Pour visionner les images du phénomène, c’est par ici : Le 22 mars 2010 à 16:10 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Samsung Galaxy S8 Series Battery Dead Ringer For Exploding Note 7

first_img Samsung To Unveil Galaxy S9 With Camera Upgrade on Feb. 25Say What: Samsung’s Bixby Adds Voice Capabilities Stay on target Samsung—the very definition of “get back on the horse”—returned to the smartphone market last month with the new flagships Galaxy S8 and S8+.Starting at $750 and $850, respectively, the pair are set to go on sale Friday.But before you pony up two weeks’ paycheck, take a look inside the handsets in iFixit’s latest teardowns.The smaller S8 stands at 5.8 inches, with a non-removable 3,000mAh battery, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and MicroSD card support. Add to that an 8-megapixel selfie camera and 12-megapixel rear shooter, featuring dual pixel autofocus and 4K video capture.A near clone of its 6.2-inch big brother, the Galaxy S8 also includes a USB-C charging port, headphone jack (take that, Apple!), and rear fingerprint reader, but no physical Home button (it’s been replaced by a virtual one).Samsung Galaxy S8 (via iFixit)“It’s like someone left the S8+ in their pocket on laundry day and it came out of the wash slightly shrunken, but no worse for wear,” the iFixit team wrote of the near-identical devices.In both phones, the battery pack—butt of all Samsung jokes for the next decade—remains firmly adhered to the casing, making it “unnecessarily” difficult, but not impossible, to replace.As iFixit pointed out, however, the larger S8+ 3,500mAh battery voltage, capacity, and design tolerances are virtually indistinguishable from the Note 7, recalled for exploding power units.“Samsung is clearly confident that their battery issue was a manufacturing quality assurance one, and the S8 series’ glued-in battery is proof that they have faith in their eight-point plan,” the repair experts said. “The design surrounding the battery … is very, very similar to the Note 7.”Samsung Galaxy S8+ (via iFixit)No matter how fancy the curved, nearly bezel-free, edge-to-edge screen looks, Samsung’s glass-on-glass design is pretty insurmountable, even for the most skilled DIYers. According to iFixit, front and back glass plus strong internal adhesive likely equal a cracked gadget.On the bright side, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ boast a number of modular components, including the headphone jack, that can be easily restored.Overall, the twin phones earned a matching (and fairly pathetic) repairability score of four out of 10—iFixit’s way of warning folks to not try this at home. Owners should keep the phone intact to maintain its compatibility with Gear VR and Gear 360 virtual reality accessories, and new voice assistant Bixby.last_img read more

Local schools address security issues

first_imgObama unveils $500 million gun control packageWhen the Clark County Safe Schools Task Force recently applied for a grant to help beef up school security plans, they were told the task force and the school districts were so far ahead of the game that they wouldn’t qualify.That was good news for Mick Hoffman, director of safety, security and athletics for Vancouver Public Schools. Hoffman also chairs the task force, formed in 1998 after the Thurston High School shooting in Springfield, Ore.The task force is composed of security and operations directors from all nine Clark County school districts, as well as public safety, health, mental health and other agencies and nonprofit organizations from throughout the county. The panel meets several times each year to discuss the work that school safety and security subgroups are doing throughout the county. The group’s first meeting of the year was Wednesday.Before the task force, each district designed its own safety and security plans. Now, with resources representing the entire county, the group works together to develop safety plans and protocols for all schools and agencies to follow in case of emergency.Shooting reactionsOn the morning of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, “our phones lit up,” said Bryan McGeachy, director of operations at Camas School District. Parents called the schools to make sure their children were safe. It was the district’s last day of school before winter break.last_img read more

A Peek at The Economists Digital Strategy

first_img“We are fortunate because tablets, e-readers and smartphones allow our readers to enjoy the ritual, lean-back, immersive experience of reading The Economist that they love in print. Many of our readers tell us that this experience is, in fact, even better than print, because as well as being lean-back, digital editions are delivered immediately and reliably (much more so than via the postal service).”Grut adds that a majority of American subscribers noted in another survey conducted last year that print was the preferred format, but 60 percent of those respondents said by 2013 they’d likely change that preference to digital. Grut’s full post, where he digs into The Economist’s broader digital strategy, is available here. The Economist Group this week released its annual financials, ending March 31, and the numbers looked good, with revenue and profits up (4 percent and 6 percent), as well as circulation. But while the overall circ of The Economist is at 1.6 million, says the company, only 123,000 subscribe digitally. But according to Oscar Grut, managing director, Economist Digital, that could change dramatically in the next year. In a recent blog post, lifted from his comments in the annual report, Grut notes that reader studies have revealed that long-form content continues to be valued, especially in digital form: last_img read more

Enzymes Market Analyzed by Top 5 Key Players by Size revenue

first_imgWorld Enzymes Market is expected to register a CAGR of 7.8% during 2015-2020. The household care segment holds about 1/3rd of the overall market share in 2014, due to large consumption of varied enzymes in detergents industry.

Demand for ultrasound scans at U.S. outpatient centers could grow by double digits over the next five years, according to a speaker at AHRA 2019. A variety of factors, however, could cause projections for this and other modalities to change. Graphic courtesy of Pixabay July 18, 2017 — Last-minute defections from two Republican senators early Tuesday ensured the chamber’s version of the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA) would not have enough votes to secure passage. President Trump and GOP leadership indicated that despite this latest defeat, they would continue to work on legislation to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA), popularly known as ObamaCare.According to the Washington Post, Sens. Mike Lee (Utah) and Jerry Moran (Kan.) issued statements prior to Tuesday’s planned vote that they would not support the revised measure. Sens. Rand Paul (Ky.) and Susan Collins (Maine) had already voiced their opposition to both versions of the Senate bill, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) could only afford to lose two votes and still secure passage.The second version of the BCRA, authored by McConnell and GOP leadership, aimed at appeasing more moderate Republicans and expanding aid for lower-income people. The revised bill added back several taxes imposed by the ACA, including the net investment income tax, the additional Medicare Health Insurance Tax and a tax on high-earning health insurance executives. From a coverage perspective, Republicans’ new version of the bill would have allow insurers to sell stripped-down plans without many of the Obamacare requirements as long as they offered at least one policy that did.Much of the backlash over the bill has stemmed from its slow reduction of the ACA’s Medicaid expansion. These provisions were largely unchanged in the revised version: The Medicaid program would be changed from an open-ended entitlement to a fixed amount of money granted to states based on enrollment or as a block grant, and the annual growth rate of those funds would be reduced beginning in 2020.In the interest of expanding care, the bill set aside $70 billion for states to help consumers with paying out-of-pocket costs in the form of cost-sharing or health savings accounts. The $70 billion was in addition to the $112 billion earmarked for the same purpose in the original bill.
