The Americans were up 27-24 in the second quarter before getting going Auriemma turned to something very familiar to him to spark the Americans The UConn coach put his five former Huskie players on the court at the same time for the first time in the Olympics and that group started the 16-3 run that blew it open Breanna Stewart got the spurt started with two free throws Taurasi then hit consecutive 3-pointers — her first points of the game — as the Americans scored 10 straight By the time Lindsay Whalen’s layup just beat the halftime buzzer the US led 49-32 and Spain had just two

France They never were down after the first quarter and with the exception of the semifinal win over France all the games were pretty much after 20 minutes It’s been quite a run for this edition of

of the WNBA season Taurasi and Bird have hinted that this will be their final Olympics although both could still return in four years in Tokyo The trio joined Lisa Leslie and Teresa Edwards as the

water-logging every year there was some relief this monsoon The Britannia pumping station at Reay Road was operational and engineers like 33-year old Shrikant Godade worked through the night to ensure roads in these areas do not get flooded A sub-engineer with the storm water drainage department Godade has been assigned the night duty shift between 11 pm and 7 am around eight times in a month When on the graveyard shift Godade a resident of Shahapur in Thane leaves his house at 830 pm bracing for a two-hour train journey till Reay Road “I reach around 1030 pm a little before my shift begins so that other officials can leave early and catch trains on time I also have to take stock of the day’s events from the officers on duty before me” Godade says Apart from Godade around 15 staff members including those on contract need to be present at the pumping station “The first thing I do is to check when the high tide is forecast for the day Then I check the water levels and if the gates are functioning properly I also check whether the contractual staff are all present on the premises” says Godade Apart from supervisory duties the engineers are responsible for keeping a close watch on the functioning of the pumps and other facilities in the multi-storey pumping station “Apart from the two sub-engineers assigned night duty an assistant engineer is always available on the phone In case of a technical glitch or any other problem we have to immediately inform the assistant engineer and the disaster management department so that the agencies concerned can be informed” he says Checking the functioning of all the switch panels Godade says “We have to ensure that the facility is running at all times The system is automatic but can also be run manually Thus in times of emergency we may be required to turn on the pumps For that we have to be ready and attentive” Even though Godade has been working with the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation for nine years this is his first experience of working through the night “I bring my dinner on the days I am on the night shift since I get acidity otherwise I usually fall asleep in the train while going back home Though my preferred shift is during the day I enjoy the night shift as well” he says On the days he is on night duty the work to be done during regular office hours piles up and he has to work longer the next day to complete it The Britannia pumping station was inaugurated on June 29 The six pumps installed here can each release 6000 litres of water per second into the sea during high tide The pumps have been designed to open automatically when the floodwater level rises up to 235 metres The floodgates are opened at the time of low tide and closed during high tide According to Godade two SWD engineers are stationed at the pumping station at all times “There are three shifts in a day — 7 am to 3 pm 3 pm to 11 pm and 11 pm to 7 am Between June 10 and October 15 around 16 SWD engineers will be put on rotation and will have to work on the night shift at least 20 times” he says This cycle will continue for the monsoon every year Have a comment or suggestion for Night ShiftWrite to [email protected]

the London Chess Classic which had begun at a glacial pace is awaiting a thrilling finale When the dustfrom the battles of round eight settled Fabiano Caruana who had been leading the tournament with a +2 score was overtaken by the Russian Grand Master Ian Nepomniachtchi who registered his third consecutive win last night Viswanathan Anand can now forget the tournament play the last match as an individual game Image Courtesy: Lennart Ootes One might think luck has smiled on Nepomniachtchi in this tournament Be it his game against Michael Adams in roundsix or this one his position was far from winning But his opponents fumbled inexplicably and conceded the full point Nepomniachtchi in the penultimate round was pitted against world champion Magnus Carlsen who has been struggling with his form since the last few rounds Carlsen who had the white pieces in the game resorted to an off-beat opening yet again but after a transposition of moves the game entered the waters of the Semi-Slav Defence Carlsen had the better position out of the opening but a missed tactic on move 25 that made his advantage evanesce Things went downhill for the world champion pretty quickly after this He miscalculated and dropped a pawn soon afterwards The game was a complete debacle after this Carlsen lost a piece due to a simple oversight and resigned a couple of moves later "I missed everything There is not much else to say I failed to predict a single one of his moves You saw what happened" Carlsen said in a dejected tone after the game Talking about his opponent’s sudden breakdown Nepomniachtchi said: "Clearly Magnus is a little bit sick and this surely this disturbs his play It’s hard when you have this sore throat and so on I mean I know it from my experience that you cannot show your best level when you’re fighting with some illness instead of fighting with your opponents" Carlsen’s result was also important for Maxime Vachier-Lagrave – who drew against Viswanathan Anand in his game – as he’s chasing the world champion for the overall Grand Chess Tour title In the final round the Frenchman will be paired against the tournament leader Nepomniachtchi and will be in a must win situation In his eighth game in London he also had an oversight of sorts in a game that opened with one of the topical openings of today the Italian Giving up his light squared bishop for Anand’s central knight he tried to grab the initiative But it turned out that he had missed the fact that Anand could force a repetition in his calculations At the right moment Anand played his repetition card after which Vachier-Lagrave had to choose between splitting the point by repeating moves or accepting an inferior position Given his tournament situation Vachier-Lagrave chose not to risk too much and accepted the draw offer In the final position Anand also had a chance to trap Vachier-Lagrave’s rook Doing that however entailed a huge risk as Vachier-Lagrave could have sacrificed his rook for a strong attack against Anand’s king Talking about this possibility Anand said “It felt very uncomfortable because my king is really vulnerable I didn’t want to get into this I simply couldn’t see that I could be better with this exchange because my king is so weak that even if he doesn’t have anything forcing I felt that he will have a very comfortable compensation I didn’t see the upside of going for this” Giving his perspective on the game Vachier Lagrave said “You know Vishy is always very well prepared so I was hoping to find a way to get some play It seems I did but then I messed up very quickly So that was not very nice” Talking about his crucial last game Vachier Lagrave said it will be difficult to win with the black pieces but since he had won against Nepomniachtchi recently in St Louis he is hopeful Hikaru Nakamura had been showing great creativity so far in London But his penultimate round game against Fabiano Caruana turned out to be a theoretical slugfest Out of a Nimzo-Indian defence the players entered an equal looking endgame pretty quickly Nakamura who was on the white side of the board had an extra pawn temporarily in the endgame but it was never really very serious The players agreed to sign peace by the 43rd move Going into the final round Nepomniachtchi will have the white pieces against Vachier Lagrave If Nepomniachtchi win this game he will surely finish clear first (if he draws Caruana can win and catch up with him) If Vachier Lagrave on the other hand wins he will not only have a shot at the title prize in the tournament but will also take the overall Grand Chess Tour title Anand hasn’t got much to play for inthe final round But as he said in his post-game interview he can now forget
