NEW DELHI Nike Air Force 1 Special Field Alte Boots Faded Olive Scontate , May 1 (Xinhua) -- A minister in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh has given hundreds of washing paddles to newlywed brides, urging them to use them against their husbands if they abuse them or turn alcoholic.

Gopal Bhargava, the minister of social justice in Madhya Pradesh local government, handed over the "special gifts" to around 700 brides during a mass marriage organized by the local government at the weekend.

Bat shaped wooden paddles are traditionally used in Indian villages by women to rinse dirt out of clothes during washing.

"The idea behind suppling washing paddles is to boost the morale of women in their fight against social evils," Bhargava told Xinhua in a telephone interview from Bhopal Nike Special Field Air Force 1 Marrone Alte Boots Scontate , capital of Madhya Pradesh.

"Here we have a huge problem of men taking liquor and then beating their wives, so providing bats to the newlywed brides is to encourage them to bridle their husbands."

The foot-long wooden bats have messages written in Hindi reading: "Police won't intervene" and "For use against drunkards."

According to Bhargava, there were increasing incidents of domestic violence against women across Madhya Pradesh and administration was doing little to control it.

"Here women are committing suicides because of domestic violence at the hands of alcoholic husbands and handing washing paddles is an act of providing them with self-defense," Bhargava said. "I think this will go a long way in bringing a social change in our state and at the same time it will highlight plight of rural women."

Mass weddings are organized in India to help couples from low income families to marry without having to pay for the event.

Eyewitnesses quoted Bhargava telling the brides to reason with their husbands first and in case their spouses refuse to listen, they should "let the wooden paddles do the talking."

The minister said the exercise should be seen as an effort towards "empowering" women. He said they would soon take a review of "gifting bats exercise" to see its impact.

"I have distributed 10 Nike Air Force 1 Flyknit Basse Tutte Bianche Scontate ,000 bats so far during various such events and will be distributing further ones," he said, adding that "there is no intention to instigate women to resort to violence but to prevent violence at the hands of their drunkard husbands."

Many Indian states have launched a campaign to ban or restrict sale of alcohol in a bid to curb domestic violence.

Alcohol is completely banned in the western state of Gujarat, and northern eastern states of Manipur and Nagaland. It is also partially banned in few other states.

Pledges to ban alcohol is popular among women voters. Last year, the Tamil Nadu government vowed to introduce liquor prohibition as part of its campaign to win re-election.

The greatest evolutionary change in professional sports over the past decade has been the introduction of analytics.

In a nutshell, this concept refers to the use of anti-traditional, hyper-specific statistical analyses to build teams and compensate players in a statistically rational manner.

Once upon a time, the field of sports analytics was considered a fringe endeavor. In 1977, a man named Bill James was viewed as a kook who self-published a quirky journal and sold it to a small Donne Nike Air Force 1 Basse Grigie Bianche Scontate , loyal, equally kooky group of subscribers.

Today, James works for the Boston Red Sox, a team that has won three World Series titles since 2003. Before the Red Sox hired James, the team had gone 86 years without winning MLB's ultimate prize.

Not surprisingly Nike Air Force 1 Basse Athletic Bianche Rosse Scontate , James' protégées currently permeate baseball's front offices. Most famously, former Red Sox GM Theo Epstein has recently been charged with the Herculean task of helping the hapless Chicago Cubs (0 for 106 years and counting) win the World Series.

Even more impressive is the impact James' research has had on other sports. Professional football and basketball, specifically, have begun to follow baseball's lead, albeit reluctantly.

Innovative omelets aren't made without breaking more than a few philosophically entrenched eggs. Old school baseball scouts have - both figuratively and literally - spit tobacco onto the concept of Moneyball.

And NBA analyst Charles Barkley Uomo Nike Air Force 1 Basse Strata Grigie Scontate , whose bombastic delivery belies his thoughtful rhetorical mind-set, had this to say, "I've always believed analytics was crap."

While Barkley usually contributes a voice of reason to ridiculous public debates, he's probably wrong in this case.

Last week, the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference gave the San Antonio Spurs an award for essentially using analytics to win two of the past three NBA championships. (For whatever it's worth Uomo Nike Air Force 1 SF AF1 Mid Boots Ivory Scontate , effective free throw shooting would have made that number three-for-three.)

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, a former US military member and current coaching legend, had this to say about the award, "I had no idea there was such a conference or such an award … the world is amazing."

Amazing? Yes. Data-driven? Yes. Here to stay? YES.
