first_imgThe Indian Premier League’s first centurion Brendon McCullum was all praise for Sanju Samson, who hammered the first century of this year’s IPL.McCullum hammered 158* off 73 balls for the Kolkata Knight Riders in the first ever match of the IPL back in 2008 versus the Royal Challengers Bangalore. His innings included 10 fours and 13 sixes as he lit up the Chinnaswamy on the first ever day of the IPL.India’s star off-spinner and the injured Ravichandran Ashwin was also all praise for the young boy from Kerala.Joining McCullum and Ashwin in praise of Samson was Harsha Bhogle, who praised the innings and his talent. His former employers and the now suspended Rajasthan Royals and the owner of the suspended team Raj Kundra also tweeted about the brillaint knock by the 22-year-old.Samson hammered his century off just 62 balls before falling to a Adam Zampa flipper for 102. With this he became the second youngest Indian to slam a ton in the IPL, first being Manish Pandey, who hammered a ton back in 2009 in South Africa at the age of 19.Coming in at no. 3, he steadied the ship for the Delhi Daredevils after Deepak Chahar picked up Aditya Tare early in the innings.He started his innings showing some great timing and hitting a flurry of boundaries. Samson settled in and took 41 balls to reach his fifty but continued the good work before finally bringing his hundred up with a big six off Zampa in the 19th over. He hit eight fours and five sixes in his knock of 102.advertisementHere’s how twitter reacted to Samson’s maiden IPL hundred:I love watching Sanju Samson play cricket!

Babies learn turntaking much before they can speak

first_imgTaking turns to respond to each other is a key part of conversation and babies learn the technique at around six months of age, long before infants know much about language, says a new study.The speed of response white taking turns — about 200 milliseconds on average, about the same time as it takes to blink — is astonishing when we appreciate the slow nature of language encoding: it takes 600ms or more to prepare a word for delivery, the study said. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’This implies a substantial overlap between listening to the current speaker and preparing our own response. In human infants, turn-taking is found in the ‘proto-conversations’ with caretakers.These infant-caretaker interactions are initially adult-like in terms of how fast infants can respond. But as they develop into more sophisticated communicators, infants’ turn-taking abilities slow down, likely due to both learning more and more complex linguistic structures, and having to find a way to squeeze these into short turns, said researcher Stephen Levinson from Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in the Netherlands. Levinson reviewed new research on turn-taking, focusing on its implications for how languages are structured and for how language and communication evolved. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixHe pointed out that turn-taking is common not only across unrelated cultures and language, the patter is also exhibited in all the major branches of the primate family – partly innate and partly learned in some monkeys, just as with human infants.  Even our nearest cousins the great apes take alternating turns in gestural communication, despite having a less complex vocal channel. All of this suggests that humans may have inherited a primate turn-taking system, Levinson said.This may have started out as a gestural form of communication, as with the other great apes, then later (about one million years ago) became one primarily expressed through the vocal channel, the study noted. The findings appeared in the journal Trends in Cognitive Sciences.last_img read more
