ASEAN’s youth learns financial resilience during pandemic

first_img“For students, I think it is to be expected that they use online learning, but workers were also willing to learn new skills. It really shows a growth mindset among ASEAN youth,” Sathirathai said.However, he added that 69 percent of respondents said that they found it difficult to work and learn from home, including 7 percent of whom said it was impossible. The study noted that the main reasons were poor internet quality, high internet cost and household distractions, among other problems.People who are living outside the capital city and those with a below-college education were also far more likely to face difficulties with remote working or studying remotely during the pandemic.In Indonesia, 29 percent said that they found the internet expensive, but 43 percent said they had a good quality connection. Meanwhile, the survey pointed out that young people in the Philippines and Vietnam experienced the most difficulties.Sathirathai added that young entrepreneurs and youth working in the gig economy faced funding constraints caused by COVID-19.According to the survey, only 33 percent of those who faced funding constraints said they relied more on bank loans, while 31 percent relied on government support and 23 percent turned to online financing.“This is an opportunity for a public-private partnership to solve the funding gap. Youth need the funds to pay for their education, for taking care of their families and for entrepreneurs, to strengthen their businesses,” Sathirathai said.Similarly, ASEAN Socio-Cultural Community deputy secretary-general Khung Poak said that member states needed to roll out government support or stimulus programs especially for small and medium enterprises (SMEs).He also suggested community-based learning to tackle education inequality during the pandemic especially in areas where people did not have stable access to the internet.Meanwhile, Research and Technology Minister Bambang Brodjonegoro said that Indonesia still needed to finish its middle and last-mile internet connectivity infrastructure to provide stable and quality internet connections throughout the archipelago.“However, such a task needs large investment and time to be completed,” he said. “One short-term solution to provide better connectivity is to use the existing telecommunications satellites, but the government needs to ramp up frequency slots to do so.”Studying from home has become an increasing burden for students, teachers and parents alike especially in remote places in the country, which threatens to exacerbate the already endemic education inequality in Indonesia.Topics : He went on to say that 31 percent of respondents also found new business models and new ways to improve income. The trend is especially true for entrepreneurs aged 26 to 35.Young people are the fastest growing investor group as the number of investors aged 18 to 25 grew by 338.61 percent from 2016 to May 2020, according to data from the Indonesian Central Securities Depository (KSEI). Meanwhile, the number of investors aged 26 to 30 grew by 204.97 percent.The WEF survey, which was conducted in June, also found that 64 percent of full-time students and 38 percent of active workers used online educational tools more actively during the COVID-19 pandemic. Young people in Southeast Asia are learning about personal financial management and ways to increase their incomes in order to stay resilient against the COVID-19 pandemic, a recent study by the World Economic Forum (WEF) has shown.The study, COVID-19 – The True Test of ASEAN Youth’s Resilience and Adaptability: Impact of Social Distancing on ASEAN Youth, showed that 58 percent of people aged 16 to 35 years old had learned better budgeting. Meanwhile, 56 percent learned about the value of emergency savings and 31 percent learned how to increase their income.“It is a tough time and people want to be prepared to face the uncertainties. So, they learn more about conserving and managing cash, as well as ways to save for rainy days,” said Santitarn Sathirathai, group chief economist from Sea, a Singapore-based global consumer internet company that conducted the study along with the WEF.last_img read more

Accounting roundup: Reporting reforms and post-Brexit rules

first_imgIASB member Ann Tarca said: “I think it is more productive to be focused on EBIT or similar subtotal, which many preparers already do. I think we can deal with the management performance measure in the notes somewhere… I don’t think it needs to be on the face of the income statement.”The board’s discussions are currently at an early stage. Staff plan to bring proposals to a future meeting to see how their thinking could be adapted to a complex financial institution.Staff have acknowledged that if any EBIT-like line item is too restrictive to accommodate a management performance subtotal, it might be necessary to relegate any management performance measure to a separate reconciliation or the notes.The focus in the latest staff papers has shifted from references to pure EBIT subtotal to a description of “profit before financing and income tax”.Meanwhile, the IASB has also recognised the need for a separate investing category in companies’ income statements.Under this proposal, defined benefit (DB) scheme sponsors would classify any interest on a surplus to this new category.’Material information’ definition under reviewThe body that advises the European Union on accounting matters, EFRAG, has published a draft comment letter in support of an IASB draft statement on materiality.In a webcast to introduce the proposals, IASB member Francoise Flores said: “The definition of materiality is easy to understand but difficult to apply. It is a totally company-specific notion that requires the exercise of judgement tailored to a company’s circumstances.”In the context of financial reporting, material information is data that is either significant or relevant.Flores added: “Currently, there is little if any guidance in IFRS on how to make materiality judgements. This lack of guidance can be regarded as partly responsible for IFRS disclosure requirements not being sufficiently challenged in practice from a materiality perspective and rather being used as a checklist.”The IASB’s practice statement is non-mandatory. Interested parties have until 5 January 2018 to comment on the EFRAG draft.UK ‘should maintain international standards’ post-BrexitThe Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) has warned that the UK has failed to give sufficient thought to the implications of its vote to leave the EU.In a policy discussion paper on the implications of Brexit for financial reporting, the institute said it supported a UK-specific endorsement mechanism for new international standards.The report’s authors argued: “[A] new national mechanism could function more smoothly and far more quickly than the EU’s, and indeed this should be regarded as a key prize available to the UK from the change in endorsement arrangements.”The paper also considered the option of accepting all international financial reporting standards (IFRS) as issued by the IASB with no modifications, as well as continuing to participate in the EU’s current endorsement mechanism.Finally, the ICAEW also called for the UK to join the IFRS Foundation’s Monitoring Board and the Accounting Standards Advisory Forum.Under the rules governing membership of the two bodies, there is no current basis for UK membership of either body.IPE has learned that UK government officials are considering separate proposals for a UK endorsement mechanism – possibly modelled on the Australian model. The International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) has instructed its staff to prioritise the development of new type of financial performance measure to be included in IFRS statements.The board expressed a preference for a measure based on earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) over parallel plans to include a management-defined measure of performance.The IASB also signalled a preference for a modified version of EBIT over any off-the-shelf definition. The decisions came during the board’s latest discussions on its Primary Financial Statements project.last_img read more

Aker BP hits pay in North Sea well

first_imgNorwegian oil company Aker BP has made an oil and gas discovery northwest of the Bøyla field in the North Sea offshore Norway. Scarabeo 8 drilling rig; Author: SP MacAker BP, the operator of production license 869, has concluded the drilling of wildcat well 24/9-14 S and a horizontal appraisal well, 24/9-14 A in the Froskelår Main prospect, the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) said on Tuesday.Appraisal well 24/9-14 A was drilled 2650 meters northeast of wildcat well 24/9-14 S. The wells were drilled about 4 kilometers northwest of the Bøyla field and 225 kilometers west of Stavanger.The objective of wildcat well 24/9-14 S was to prove petroleum and the reservoir potential in reservoir rocks (injectites) in the Eocene (Intra Hordaland group sandstones). The objective of well 24/9-14 A was to investigate the lateral extent, as well as the reservoir potential of the injectites.Wildcat well 24/9-14 S encountered a total gas column of 30 meters, and a total oil column of 38 meters in the Hordaland group in sandstone layers (injectites) totaling 35 meters, mainly with very good to excellent reservoir properties. The sandstones are interpreted as being remobilised sand from the Heimdal and Hermod formations in the Palaeocene which are injected into the overlying Hordaland group. The gas/oil contact was observed in the well. The oil/water contact was not observed, as the logs showed oil down to the situation.Appraisal well 24/9-14 A, which was drilled horizontally, encountered several gas-bearing and oil-bearing injectite zones totalling 540 meters, with many sandstone layers with variable reservoir properties, mainly from good up to excellent. Here too, the sandstone layers are interpreted as being injected sands in the Hordaland group with variable quality and thickness. The gas/oil and oil/water contacts are as in the wildcat well. According to the NPD, preliminary estimates place the size of the discovery between 10 and 21 million standard cubic meters (Sm3) of recoverable oil equivalents. The nearby 24/9-3 (Gamma) oil discovery can be viewed as being a part of this discovery. Part of the discovery may extend over to the UK sector. The licensees will consider tying the discovery into existing infrastructure in the Alvheim area.The wells were not formation-tested, but extensive volumes of data have been acquired and samples have been taken. These are the first and second exploration wells in production license 869, which was awarded in APA 2016.The 24/9-14 S well was drilled to respective vertical and measured depths of 2097 and 2252 meters below sea level, and was terminated in the Sele formation in the Palaeocene. The 24/9-14 A well was drilled horizontally in the Hordaland group in the Eocene to respective vertical and measured depths of 1847 and 4398 meters below sea level.Water depth at the site is 120 meters. The wells have been permanently plugged and abandoned.The wells 24/9-14 S and 24/9-14 A were drilled by the Saipem-owned Scarabeo 8 drilling rig, which will now drill a combined wildcat and test production well, 24/9-15 S, in production license 340, where Aker BP is the operator.Evy Glørstad-Clark, SVP Exploration in Aker BP, commented: “The exploration success at Froskelår Main is an encouraging result of a long -term strategy to unlock the exploration potential in the Alvheim area. This strategy has involved extensive data acquisition and detailed technical analysis.“In parallel, we have been expanding our acreage position in the area through licensing rounds and business development activities. The Froskelår Main discovery represents a significant addition to the resource base in the Alvheim area. The discovery also illustrates the significant resource potential yet to be uncovered on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.” Tying into existing infrastructure last_img read more

Gay marriage given the green light for weddings in churches

first_imgThe Telegraph 7 December 2012 Gay couples would be allowed to marry in churches under plans due to be unveiled by the Government next week.The decision represents a major u-turn on the position set out in a formal Government consultation earlier this year which proposed a blanket ban.It raises the prospect of a major battle between church and state over the issue as well as a massive backbench rebellion with at least 130 Conservatives set to vote against the proposals.The plans will be announced by the Culture Secretary Maria Miller next week and a detailed bill is expected to be put before Parliament next month.That could see the redefinition of marriage sped through the Commons before the summer.The shift in policy came after Government lawyers came up with plans for “multiple lock” legal protections for churches, mosques and synagogues which do not want to marry gay couples on grounds of belief.David Cameron said: “I’m a massive supporter of marriage and I don’t want gay people to be excluded from a great institution.”But let me be absolutely one hundred per cent clear, if there is any church or any synagogue or any mosque that doesn’t want to have a gay marriage it will not, absolutely must not, be forced to hold it.”That is absolutely clear in the legislation.“Also let me make clear, this is a free vote for Members of Parliament but personally I will be supporting it.”Opponents believe that no safeguard will be able to protect them from a legal challenge at the European Court of Human Rights, which would force them to marry gay couples.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/9729773/Gay-marriage-given-the-green-light-for-weddings-in-churches.htmllast_img read more

No stones left unturned!

first_imgWITH just three days to go before Guyana’s senior Men’s National football team – Golden Jaguars – ‘roar’ against Belize, head coach Michael Johnson believes that based on the extensive preparation, his team is more than ready to create ‘football history’ at the Leonora Track and Field Centre.A win for Guyana will send them to CONCACAF Gold Cup for the first time, while a victory for Belize will see the Central American island return to the tournament for the first time since 2013.While ‘Lady Jags’ – the country’s senior women’s team – in 2010 became the first team under the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) banner to play at the CONCACAF showpiece (in Cancun, Mexico), the men’s side had never done so, only coming close (one goal to be exact) in 2007.Fast forward to present-day and with a revamped Gold Cup qualification process, thanks to CONCACAF’s president Victor Montagliani, who introduced the Nation’s League, Guyana are now 90+ minutes away from booking their tickets for the June 15-July 7 tournament.“Everybody is in a good place conditioning-wise, now everybody is focussing on the psychological aspect of the game because we all know the magnitude (of the game) so we’re going to discuss it and see where we go from there and just allow the players to focus on getting us to the Gold Cup,” an excited Johnson told reporters at the conclusion of the team’s first training session last Monday.Johnson named three debutants – Jordan Greenidge, Anthony Jeffrey and forward Keanu Marsh-Brown – in his 23-man squad, while adding some familiar players in a team he said is more than capable of bringing success to the country’s men’s programme.The former Jamaican International who turned out for the ‘Reggae Boyz’ in the Gold Cup during his illustrious playing career said that this could possibly be the best- assembled National team in recent times, based on the quality of the players.“We left no stones unturned this time and I’m happy with the way we went about preparing the team, especially with the extensive work we did with the locally based players,” Johnson revealed.Johnson said that there’s very little room for error and as such, the players selected, who are all seasoned professionals in their respective careers, are ready to go. However, the challenge is getting them to play together and gel perfectly before taking the pitch on Saturday.In 2017 CONCACAF, Montagliani introduced the Nation’s League, which is a new national team competition platform they had designed to maximise the quality, quantity and frequency of competitive matches for all Member Associations within the confederation. The opportunity presented was perfect for GFF.The task was artless. They finished in the top ten of the 34-team Nations League qualification tournament and Guyana were in the Gold Cup.Though the team had beaten Turks and Caicos 8-0 after a disappointing 2-2 home draw against Barbados, a 1-2 away loss to French Guiana placed Guyana in a position where it was mathematically improbable for them to reach the confederation’s marquee event since only the teams finishing in the top 10 will advance.Luckily for Guyana, it was later revealed that the Carlisle United and former Bury FC forward Hallam Hope, who had scored both goals against Guyana, did not have the proper clearance from FIFA and the English FA to represent Barbados.In accordance with Articles 55 and 31 of the FIFA Disciplinary Code, the BFA lost the match against Guyana by a score of 3-0.That result pushed the Guyanese men to 8th position behind Curacao (1), Haiti (2), Cuba (3), Canada (4), Jamaica (5) and Martinique (6) who rounded off the top six teams in the tournament, having picked up full points from their three matches. Bermuda (7th) St Kitts and Nevis (9th) and the Dominican Republic are the other teams in the top ten.Belize, Guyana’s next opponents, are in 13th position with six points (two wins and a loss).GOLDEN JAGUARS SQUAD:Goalkeepers – Alex Murray, Sese Norville and Akel Clarke. Defenders – Sam Cox, Elliot Bonds, Terence Vancooten, Reiss Greenidge, Ronayne Marsh-Brown, Walter Moore and Kevin Layne. Midfielders – Neil Danns, Clive Nobrega, Stephen Duke-McKenna, Anthony Jeffrey, Kadell Daniel, Warren Creavalle and Trayon Bobb. Forwards – Sheldon Holder, Gregory Richardson, Pernel Schultz, Marcel Barrington, Emery Welshman and Keanu Marsh-Brown. Golden Jaguars head coach ready to create historylast_img read more

SU has paid ‘approximately 20 percent’ of Big East exit fee

first_img Published on December 27, 2012 at 4:25 pm Contact David: dbwilson@syr.edu | @DBWilson2 Syracuse University has already paid a portion of its $7.5 million exit fee to leave the Big East, SU Senior Vice President for Public Affairs Kevin Quinn said Thursday.Quinn said the university has paid approximately 20 percent of the exit fee that will allow the Orange to leave the Big East on July 1, 2013. The remainder will be paid over a multi-year period, he said, but he could not give any details as to when the exit fee will be paid off completely, as “the exit agreement was confidential between the university and the Big East.”Syracuse, along with Pittsburgh, announced it would leave the Big East for the Atlantic Coast Conference in September 2011. Both schools will move to the ACC in July. The Big East’s seven basketball-only Catholic schools have also decided to leave the conference in recent weeks, leaving the future of the Big East in serious doubt.Syracuse’s game against West Virginia in the Pinstripe Bowl Saturday will mark the final football game for the Orange as a member of the Big East.

Men’s Basketball: Wisconsin walks away empty handed from Hall of Fame Classic

first_imgThe University of Wisconsin men’s basketball (2-4) fell in both the first round and consolation game of the 2017 Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City. The losses came Monday in a 70-65 defeat against No. 25 Baylor (5-0) and Tuesday where the Badgers lost 72-70 on a last second score by No. 24 UCLA (4-1).For much of the game against Baylor, the lead seemed insurmountable, with Wisconsin trailing by as much as 17 halfway through the second period.Wisconsin men’s basketball begins with UW welcoming UNI to Kohl CenterThe University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team is officially back in action this week, as the Badgers prepare to welcome Read…But, strong performances by Ethan Happ and freshman Brad Davison gave the Badgers a fighting chance toward the end.Unfortunately, Happ’s 23-point performance and Davison’s clutch 10 points in the second half were not enough to get the win. Senior guard Manu Lecomte continued his strong campaign notching 24 points on 60 percent shooting from beyond the arc.The contest against UCLA was much closer throughout, as the score was tied on 15 different occasions over the course of the game.  While the Badgers led by five at the three-minute mark, it was ultimately a game winning layup by Aaron Holiday that clinched the win for the Bruins with 0.8 left on the clock. Holiday was also the leading scorer for UCLA, going 7-12 from the field with five assists.The loss was unfortunate for Wisconsin, as the Bruins are arguably the weakest they will be all season, missing three key freshman that were suspended following their shoplifting charges in China.  LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill were all suspended indefinitely after they returned to the states last week.Men’s Basketball: Wisconsin to take on No.15 Xavier from Big EastFollowing an 89-61 blowout victory over Yale Sunday afternoon, the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team continues their homestead with Read…Though the Badgers fell short in both contests, there are some positives that Wisconsin and Coach Gard can take away from the games.First, the emergence of freshman Brian Davison in the last few games has given us a glimpse of what this young team will look like when they reach their potential. Davison’s minutes increased dramatically against Xavier and Baylor, outplaying his counterpart Brevin Pritzl in key moments during the second half.  Davison’s strong 10-point second half against Baylor earned him his first career start against UCLA where he performed well, going 4-11 from the field and 3-8 from 3 for 14 points.Wisconsin’s grittiness as a young team is also a trait they displayed during their two games in Kansas City.  With inexperienced teams, it is often easy to act carelessly with the ball and cause turnovers in key moments. While there are certainly areas the team can improve in closing out games, Wisconsin generally improved in making these mistakes as time went on and turned the ball over less than both UCLA and Baylor.Women’s Basketball: Wisconsin to host UW-Platteville in exhibition gameThe University of Wisconsin women’s basketball team will host an exhibition game Wednesday against UW-Platteville at the Kohl Center. The Read…Their week in Kansas City might not have ended as well as Wisconsin hoped for, but the Badgers cannot allow themselves to fall into a downward spiral at this point. Wisconsin needs to work on rebounding after these tough losses if they want to see the rest of their season pan out well.Wisconsin has one more non-conference game left before they begin their Big Ten schedule.

Delta School Sports Festival Now Annual Event, Says Okowa

first_imgWhile thanking God for eventual institution of the state’s sports fiesta, the governor assured indigenes of the state that boys and girls discovered at the festival would be nurtured for various future sports tournaments.In the final of the football match, Nosiere Primary School I, Agbor in Ika South Local Government Area defeated Destiny Primary School, Ughelli by a lone goal to lift the Headmaster’s Cup.Governor Okowa appealed to other states of the federation to organise similar schools sports festivals not only to boost sport development in Nigeria generally, but to promote the physical and mental fitness of our youths as well.Going down memory lane, he noted that Delta State has long been a breeding ground for sports talents in the country, saying his administration has been investing much in sports, in terms of infrastructure and human capital, including educational, to sustain the tempo in sport development.Okowa said, “It is well known that Delta State is a sports-loving state and its athletes did very well in feeding the teams of Mid-West and later Bendel State, before Edo and Delta states were created. What we are doing today is to replicate what we were doing in the past, in the days of old Bendel; and, we are excited to witness and participate in this sports festival.“We are aware that three editions of the Principal’s Cup have been held; today we are witnessing the finals of the Headmaster’s Cup, because our desire is to catch them young, nurture them to be professionals at the national and international stages.”The governor thanked the Commissioner for Basic and Secondary Education, Mr Chiedu Ebie and members of the organizing committee for the successful package of the event, expressing the hope that the festival, ”which is a fertile ground to catch budding talents”, would be sustained as an annual sports festival by his successor from 2023.He also commended the head teachers and principals of the participating schools, noting that the young athletes displayed great features of good future sports men and women.Students and pupils of different secondary and primary schools across the state competed for medals in different athletics events during the festival including track and field and indoor sports like 100m and 200m races, high/long jump, short put, discuss, javelin, scrabble, chess, badminton, table tennis, volleyball, handball and basketball.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Okowa presenting the Winners Trophy to the captain of Nosiere Primary School 1 Agbor, Ika South LGA at Stephen Kechi Stadium, Asaba Nosiere School lifts Headmasters’ CupOmon-Julius Onabu in AsabaDelta State Governor, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa, has said that the Delta State School Sports Festival would become an annual affair and an avenue to discover budding talents for local, national and international sports competition.Okowa stated this in his closing remarks at the grand finale of the maiden Delta State Schools Sports Festival at the Stephen Keshi Stadium Asaba, on Wednesday evening.last_img read more

first_img Source: BBC Captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang missed a glaring chance with the last kick of the match as Arsenal crashed to a shocking Europa League defeat at the hands of Olympiakos.Aubameyang, so often the Gunners’ saviour, looked like he had once again rescued his side from an abject showing when his superb scissor kick – which cancelled out Pape Abou Cisse’s opener – put them in the driving seat with seven minutes left of extra time.But the visitors punished awful set-piece defending for a second time on the night as Youssef El Arabi poked home in front of their raucous travelling fans.And there was still time for the unmarked Aubameyang to somehow screw wide from five yards out and condemn Mikel Arteta’s side to their first defeat of 2020.For large periods of a flat game a full-strength Arsenal XI were frustrated, frustrating and feeble in front of goal – with their first shot on target not arriving until the 77th minute.Olympiakos were hardly buccaneering in their approach, especially considering they had lost the first leg in Athens, but carried out their gameplan perfectly to steal a famous win and progress to the last 16.Limp Gunners lose route to Champions LeagueArteta had talked in the build-up of having three routes into Europe for next season but this competition was surely his best bet of an unlikely seat at the Champions League top table.To go out in such limp fashion will leave the manager livid – and for most of the night he was the most animated member of the Arsenal contingent.Familiar failings were their undoing as the Greek side twice scored from set-pieces. First, Aubameyang allowed 6ft 6ins centre-back Cisse a totally free header from a corner, and then David Luiz appeared to leave a cross from a half-cleared 120th-minute corner and gift El Arabi a lunging tap-in.Olympiakos came to defend deep and in numbers, to frustrate Arsenal and then to hopefully score from a corner. It was a strategy they pulled off impeccably.But they must have expected an Arsenal forward line of Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, Mesut Ozil and Nicolas Pepe – recruited at a cost of around £215m – to cause more problems.The four managed just one shot on target between them before Aubameyang’s brilliant late goal that briefly had Arsenal progressing. Ozil’s cross was nodded on by substitute Gabriel Martinelli and the Gabon striker rearranged himself masterfully to crack an acrobatic effort into the back of the net.The home fans, who greeted the full-time whistle with apathy rather than anger, roared into belated life but it was the supporters at the other end who will now have their eyes on Friday’s draw.last_img read more

US Open 2013: Andy Murray says title defence is ‘up and running’

first_imgAndy Murray feels his US Open title defence is finally up and running as he prepares to face Germany’s Florian Mayer in the third round on Sunday.The Scot said: “I’m in the tournament now. I play every other day. I’ll stick to the same routines pretty much now until the end of the tournament.”The Wimbledon champion, 26, plays world number 47 Mayer for a place in the last 16 at Flushing Meadow.Murray had to wait until late on day three to open his title defence.A straight-sets win over France’s Michael Llodra was followed by victory over Argentine Leonardo Mayer in four sets on Friday.Murray added: “I would probably say on Monday I was a little bit nervous or kind of anxious to know what it was going to feel like when I went on the court. “By the time I got on it Wednesday night, I literally wanted to play. I wasn’t thinking about anything else. Maybe in that way it helped me a little bit.”Mayer, 29, has twice been a Wimbledon quarter-finalist but has never been past the third round in New York.Murray has won their two previous meetings, both of which were on clay, but they were tight matches and Mayer is an experienced and unorthodox opponent.“He’s very tough,” said Murray. “He comes to net a bit, he has a good slice backhand, but he hits it with two hands, which isn’t how normally you’re taught to play that shot.“He has very good feel up at the net, hits a lot of drop shots. He’s a pretty flat ball striker. He has sort of huge, looping strokes. It can be tough to time your split step and know when he’s going to make contact with the ball. “He’s caused a lot of guys problems over his career. I’ll need to play well to beat him.”After the serve-volleying of Llodra and the powerful baseline hitting of Leonardo Mayer, Murray is not concerned about facing another very different style across the net.He added: “I think going from playing a serve-volleyer to a guy that plays at the back of the court can take a bit of time because the points develop completely differently.“But against Mayer, a majority of the points will be played from the back of the court. He’s a right-hander; I don’t think now it should be an issue.”Murray and Mayer will be on court not before 18:00 BST and will be followed onto Arthur Ashe Stadium by the much-anticipated clash between American number one Serena Williams and number two Sloane Stephens . Sunday’s night session will see world number one Novak Djokovic play Portugal’s Joao Sousa at 00:00 BST (Monday), before former finalist Jelena Jankovic takes on fifth seed Li Na .last_img read more

DPP recommends more investigation in “Otisha” case

first_imgThe Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) has returned the file with regard to accusations of paedophilia against popular cross-dresser, Otis ‘Otisha’ Pearson, to the Guyana Police Force advising that additional work be conducted.The Police said the file was returned on Monday with the advice that additionalCross-dresser, Otis ‘Otisha’ Pearsoninvestigative work be done. They have since released Pearson who was in custody since March 6.Pearson was taken into Police custody on March 6 after the Child Care and Protection Agency (CC&PA) forwarded the findings of its investigation of paedophilia claims against the sex worker. The Police’s investigation is still ongoing and the file is with the DPP for legal advice.However, on Friday last, the Police sought an extension to detain the sex worker for an additional 72 hours as they await legal advice and wrap up their investigation.The CC&PA’s investigation stemmed after Pearson went on national television, after he was released from Police custody for another incident, and claimed that he has “a little boy” for every day of the week. Following that claim, photos of the cross dresser and a teenaged boy were leaked to social media site, Facebook, sparking outrage.To pacify the situation, Pearson, in the presence of Joel Simpson – founder of the Society Against Sexual Orientation and Discrimination (SASOD) explained that the term “little boy” is usually thrown around in the transgender community and denied being involved in sexual relations with any underage boy. This view was supported by Simpson who said his organisation does not condone such relations and that he was aware of the “little boy” euphemism.The surfacing of the photos and subsequent response led to several persons calling for an investigation into the incident and accused Pearson of being a pervert.Back in February, the CC&PA closed its investigation into the alleged misconduct by Pearson. It was discovered that the boy was below the legal age of consent, which is 16 and became a victim of bullying after the photos were leaked.According to CC&PA’s Director, Ann Green, the Agency has gathered statements from a number of persons, including the young man at the centre of the controversy, and as such, it is expected to move ahead with the case.last_img read more

Biblical Name Found on Pottery

first_imgThe Times of Israel calls it a “once in a lifetime” discovery. See also Israel National News.  Live Science’s article ends:“Until about five years ago we knew of no inscriptions dating to the tenth century BCE from the Kingdom of Judah. In recent years four inscriptions have been published: two from Khirbet Qeiyafa, one from Jerusalem and one from Bet Shemesh,” Garfinkel and Ganor said in the IAA statement. “This completely changes our understanding of the distribution of writing in the Kingdom of Judah, and it is now clear that writing was far more widespread than previously thought.“Other Biblical Archaeology NewsIn the City of David outside the current southern wall in Jerusalem, Eilat Mazar has continued excavating. She claims now to have uncovered Solomon’s palace wall. The Israel Video Network posted a video by CBN where Mazar describes the find of large walls with Phoenician decor, carved ivory ornaments and royal seals she believes point to Solomon’s reign.To the north, excavators at Khirbet al-Maqatir uncovered another cistern. The site is believed to be the Biblical fort of Ai defeated by Joshua. A video by Scott Stripling shows the discovery.The current issue of Creation Magazine clears up confusion about the identity and role of King Belshazzar spoken of in the Book of Daniel.Bible Places Blog is a good place to keep up on the latest discoveries in Biblical archaeology. Another news site is Bible History Daily. Facebook users can also engage in the conversation by joining the Bible Archaeology group.The Bible always wins out in the end, doesn’t it? Over a century ago, Robert Anderson wrote a book called Daniel in the Critics’ Den. Even now, the Lord has ways of shutting the mouths of lions and critics. An iron-age pot at a fortress south of Jerusalem is inscribed with the name of King Saul’s successor at the time of David.Khirbet Qeiyafa is becoming more of an archaeological hotspot as findings from the excavations are being published. It’s becoming clear this was an important outpost at the time of King Saul, King David and King Solomon, supporting the descriptions in the Old Testament that the first monarchs of Judah and Israel were indeed capable of administering a far-flung kingdom. Not many years ago, Bible skeptics denied that these kings were more than local tribal chieftans (4/24/12).Now, for the first time, the name Esh-baal (Biblical Ish-bosheth), the same name as that of King Saul’s son and rival of King David, has been found in an inscription on a pottery jug. The story was announced by the Biblical Archaeology Society which says,The Biblical name Eshbaal has been found for the first time in an ancient inscription. Incised before firing on a 3,000-year-old pithos (large ceramic storage jar), the inscription was discovered at the site of Khirbet Qeiyafa in Israel. Researchers Yosef Garfinkel, Mitka R. Golub, Haggai Misgav and Saar Ganor have published their study of this inscription in a forthcoming issue of the journal Bulletin of the American Schools of Oriental Research (BASOR).The Eshbaal inscription reads “[ ] | ʾšbʿl | ˹bn˺ | bdʿ” (“ʾIšbaʿal son of Bedaʿ”) and was written from right to left in the Canaanite alphabetic script. The name ʾšbʿl, commonly translated as ʾIšbaʿal (or Esh-Baʿal—“man of Baʿal”), is known from the Bible. Eshbaal was the second king of Israel, King Saul’s son and a rival of King David (1 Chronicles 8:33; in 2 Samuel 2–4, this king is called Ish-Bosheth). The name Bedaʿ, however, is unique.It is not clear, therefore, whether the name refers to Saul’s son or some other man with the same name. However, this name dates from the period of David, because shortly after the -baal ending fell out of favor. The author of II Samuel may have emended the earlier names with -bosheth (shame) to avoid honoring the Canaanite fertility god, although “baal” sometimes just means “lord” and was used in honor of the God of Israel sometimes. Thus, Ishbaal (or Eshbaal) is rendered Ishbosheth in II Samuel, and Jonathan’s son Merib-baal became Mephibosheth (see Luke Chandler blog). The original name Ish-baal is retained in I Chronicles.Inscriptions from this period are very rare. An ostracon found at the site in 2008 was a sensation—the earliest Iron Age inscription ever found in Israel (1/07/10).This new inscription marks a transitional stage between the writing system used for 800 years and the official, standardized Phoenician script used by kingdoms and states in Canaan by at least the 10th century B.C.E.Radiocarbon shows the jug dating from approx. 1020-980 BC.  King David reigned from about 1010-970 BC. The fact that the text was written in clay in large, clear letters before firing indicates it was the work of a trained scribe. This is another clue to the administrative reach of the early Judean monarchy. Khirbet Qeiyafa is adjacent to the Elah Valley where David killed Goliath.

Ohio farm couple wins American Farm Bureau Excellence in Agriculture Award

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The 99th American Farm Bureau Federation Annual Convention brought big news for an Ohio farm couple.Greg and Rose Hartschuh of Sycamore were named winners of American Farm Bureau’s Excellence in Agriculture Award. They will receive a new Ford truck, courtesy of Country Financial, and will also receive paid registration to the AFBF YF&R Leadership Conference in Reno, Nevada, Feb. 16-19.“It was a really unique opportunity to compete and meet the other farmers from around the United States. It was definitely unexpected. We hoped that our Farm Bureau involvement and the things we have done in our community stood out in our applications. We were definitely pleasantly surprised to be named the winners,” Rose said. “Greg and I have been really active with Young Ag Professionals and we are starting to get to the end of the age group for that. It is nice to wrap up our involvement in YAP winning an award like this. Obviously we are still interested in remaining involved with the organization and are looking for other avenues to participate.”Rose is a seed adviser, contributes to the family farm and manages their additional family businesses. Greg farms full time, raising corn, soybeans and operating a dairy. The Hartschuhs partnered with two other farm families to revitalize a neglected farm property in Bucyrus, which now offers a farm market in one barn and an event venue in another. They also offer agricultural education activities on their farm.The Hartschuhs were instrumental in coordinating an effort in early 2017 that allowed Ohio farmers to convoy semis full of farm goods to Kansas ranches in need of assistance after devastating wildfires ravaged the area.“The caliber of competition was definitely high. The people that participated were really involved in the ag industry,” Rose said. “One of the things we really brought to the table was our amount of Farm Bureau involvement. Look for opportunities to get involved. The county Farm Bureau definitely is not going to turn you down as a volunteer. That can lead to other involvement opportunities as well. There is so much you can do through Farm Bureau and you can learn so much through those opportunities.”The Excellence in Agriculture Award recognizes young farmers and ranchers who do not derive the majority of their income from an agricultural operation, but who actively contribute and grow through their involvement in agriculture, their leadership ability and participation in Farm Bureau and other organizations.last_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, October 8, 2018

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The next two days will be mostly dry across the state. However, we could see quite a spread in weather conditions, based on where a stationary/warm front sets up on each day. Yesterday, the front was draped across the northern third of the state, and north of the front we stayed cloudy, foggy, and cooler while the southern two thirds of the state were warmer, drier and sunnier. That front may linger in northern Indiana today, but we should see stronger south flow developing too, which would allow for clearing. Generally, if we see sunshine, we will see temps take off. That is what we expect over the next two days.Significant rains show up Wednesday late afternoon and evening as the strong cold front sweeps through. We still have a concern about strong to severe weather and are projecting moderate to heavy rains. At this point we will keep rain totals at half to 1.5”.  Also, of note, this front will produce gusty winds, which will not be friendly to mature crops waiting to be harvested. The state will see 100% coverage on these rains. But, we are speeding the frontal passage up a bit, and look for all rains to be done by midday Thursday. The map shows system rain totals through midnight Wednesday night.Dry Thursday through early Friday. However, we see a minor wave of action tracking across the northern half of the corn belt for Friday midday and evening. This little wave tries to lift northeast as it slips across Ohio, meaning we likely see rains limited to only NW and North central Ohio. There we can see rain totals at .15” or less over the northern half  part of the state. The rest of Ohio sees nothing.The rest of the 10-day window dry with plenty of sunshine from next Saturday through the following Wednesday. In fact, we see that dryness go through the majority of the 11-16 day extended period too. There may be a slight bit of moisture at the end of the extended period, around the 23rd. Right now, it looks like a few hundredths to a tenth, mostly north. But things will change by the time we get there. Overall, though, that means once we get done with the rains at midweek this week, we should be able to see a fairly wide-open window for drying and eventually a return to harvest with no problems.Temps will be warm the next 3 days, continuing a well above normal streak for the open of the month of October. But, we go back closer to normal behind the front for the balance of the week and should stay normal to slightly below normal for the rest of the period, on through the 23rd.last_img read more

GBA Editor Holladay to Speak at Westford XIV

first_imgFolks attending the invitation-only Fourteenth Annual Westford Symposium on Building Science – otherwise known as Westford XIV or, more colloquially, “Summer Camp” – reflexively dive deep into technical discussions of high-performance residential and commercial construction, design, and equipment. Attended by manufacturers, homebuilders, architects, engineers, academics, and scientists from the Department of Energy’s system of National Laboratories and Technology Centers, Summer Camp is all about enriching industry professionals’ working knowledge of building science, forging contacts, and having some fun in the process.This is, however, an unusually small group. The Summer Camp invitation list is limited to about 350 people, and being asked to participate as a symposium presenter or facilitator puts one in extremely select and highly regarded company. That is why GreenBuildingAdvisor.com is proud to report that one of our editors, Martin Holladay, is among the presenters at the upcoming camp, scheduled for August 2 through 4 in Westford, Massachusetts. Martin’s historical overview of energy-efficient residential design and construction is titled “The History of Superinsulated Houses in North America.” (The slides from Holladay’s presentation can be viewed by clicking here.)A well-spoken advocate for green buildingIf you’re among the many GBA readers who follow his weekly Musings of an Energy Nerd blog, you know that Martin draws on more than 35 years of building-industry experience in his analyses of the environmental, technical, and financial pros and cons of everything from ceiling fans and wood stoves to insulation systems, renewable-energy systems, HVAC appliances, building code, and all the other components and variables that affect the quality and cost of residential construction. Just as important, he presents his topics carefully and writes clearly, in terms easily absorbed by both consumers and the technically savvy.In a recent newsletter sent to Summer Camp invitees, “camp counselor” Joe Lsitburek, a principal at Building Science Corporation who also is a frequent contributor to GBA’s Building Science podcast series, points out that Martin “was there at the beginnings of the Superinsulation movement. His personal observations and participation are fascinating and need to be shared.”Suffice to say, he won’t disappoint.last_img read more

Microsoft Earnings Surprise: Windows Soars, While Office Struggles

first_imgMaybe Windows 8 isn’t doing so badly after all.Overall, Microsoft profits fell 4% during the fourth calendar quarter, although revenue climbed. Revenue and profits within Microsoft’s Windows division jumped dramatically compared to a year ago, however.In total, Microsoft reported $6.4 billion in net income, in line with what analysts expected. Revenue increased 2.73% to $21.5 billion.Microsoft Beats Wall St. EstimatesAnalysts had expected the firm’s revenue to grow about 3% from the $20.9 billion the company posted in the same period last year to around $21.5 billion, according to analysts polled by Yahoo Finance. They also anticipated a 4% drop in profits, from 78 cents per share to 75 cents per share. “Our big, bold ambition to reimagine Windows as well as launch Surface and Windows Phone 8 has sparked growing enthusiasm with our customers and unprecedented opportunity and creativity with our partners and developers,” said Steve Ballmer, chief executive officer at Microsoft, in a statement. “With new Windows devices, including Surface Pro, and the new Office on the horizon, we’ll continue to drive excitement for the Windows ecosystem and deliver our software through devices and services people love and businesses need.”Microsoft’s Windows division recorded the highest revenue of all of Microsoft’s business units, and nearly the highest profits as well.Microsoft said that in total, more than 60 million Windows 8 licenses had been sold, in keeping with what Tami Reller, Microsoft’s Windows marketing chief, had said earlier this month. Revenue from the Windows and Windows Live Division jumped by 24% versus a year ago, and profits climbed 14%. For the September quarter, the Windows and Windows Live Division produced $1.64 billion in profits on  $3.2 billion in revenue. At launch, Microsoft claimed that 16 million Windows 8 pre-release licenses had been installed; by the end of November, 40 million Windows 8 licenses had been installed. In January, Windows marketing chief Tami Reller said 60 million Windows 8 licenses had been installed. Office 365 Subscriptions Didn’t Pay OffMicrosoft made a bit bet on its Office 365 suite, pricing Office 365 at less than the standalone Office package and tempting its customers to switch to the subscription model. Surprisingly, that didn’t pay off. Revenue fell 10% to $5.7 billion, while profits fell 15%. Traditionally, Microsoft’s Business Division yields the most revenue among Microsoft’s business unit; for the September quarter, the unit reported $3.6 billion in profits on top of $5.5 billion in revenue.Microsoft’s Server & Tools business reported $2.1 billion in profits on top of $5.19 billion in revenue. For the September quarter, Server & Tools produced $1.7 billion in profits on $4.5 billion in revenue. Microsoft’s Online division lost less money than a year ago – $283 million, on higher revenue of $869 million. And Microsoft’s Entertainment Division, which houses the Xbox, recorded a larger $596 million profit on revenue of $3.7 billion.Microsoft had predicted a strong start to Windows 8. In October, Keith Lorizio, vice president of U.S. sales and marketing for Microsoft, predicted that 400 million users would be using Windows 8 by July 2013.Windows 8 Sales Could Quiet CriticsFor months, there have been signs that Microsoft’s Windows 8 software didn’t take off as quickly as, say, an Amazon Kindle or Apple iPad – signs that Microsoft’s revenue figures seem to disprove. A top executive at Internet retailer NewEgg, for example, had characterized the Windows 8 launch as “slow going.” Merle McIntosh, the senior vice president of product management of Newegg North America, said in November that he expected sales of Windows 8 to begin taking off during the second quarter of 2013. Julie Larson-Green, the head of Windows development, talked about how it could take weeks to transition to Windows 8. And Tami Reller, in charge of marketing strategy for Windows 8, began managing expectations for Windows 8 weeks ago by spinning it as a product that would require multiple selling seasons to get up to speed. Image source: Microsoft Related Posts Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… IT + Project Management: A Love Affair 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Nowcenter_img Tags:#Microsoft#Microsoft Office#Windows 8 Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… markhachmanlast_img read more

Chalk Talk: How the Cowboys Utilize the Quick Snap

first_imgThe Oklahoma State offense came alive in the second half in their 38-31 victory over Iowa State last Saturday. That was partly due to their success on first downs, and more specifically, their quick-snap first downs immediately following a conversion. The Cowboys have found success on said downs not only on the ground but also on downfield chunk plays. Today, we’re going to take a closer look at why this quick snap works and how the Cowboys run it so well.Watch the process here. In this example, the offense converts a third down on a run to the left:seq1Rudolph immediately looks to the sideline for the next play and then signals it to his players:seq2And they quickly align in their new formation and run the play:seq3Here’s another example of their quick snap success, but this time in the red zone. The Cowboys convert a third down and get inside the five for a first-and-goal:bseq1Rudolph, who gets the signal from the sideline, quickly communicates with his players and gets in his stance:bseq2And he gets the ball snapped as quickly as possible:bseq3The Cowboys’ success on quick-snap first downs is, on average, much higher than that on their drive-opening first downs. This is because they can fully maximize the effect of their tempo on their quick-snap first downs. In these situations, Rudolph can get the signal while the chains are moving and the ball can be snapped immediately after it is set. 2.6 yards (1.7 R, 4.5 P)10.8 yards (5.8 R, 15.2 P) Drive-Opening 1st Down AVG(Run, Pass)Other 1st Down AVG (Run, Pass)center_img The difference is jarring, but it’s not only because of the tempo. One thing that offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich has done well since he’s been here is utilize the quick snap. Initially, he just used it alongside his trick plays, where he would have the offense run a base play and then quickly align after it ended to run the gadget. But as the Cowboy offense has regained its reputation as a “tempo offense,” Yurcich has put together a package of weekly plays that he uses on first down to catch the defense off-guard.He likes to call RPOs (run-pass options) off the quick snap to give Rudolph the option to hand the ball off or take a shot deep. This week, they used a base handoff with route attachments on both the twin and single-receiver side.qs_rpoLast week, they used RPOs to take shots downfield, like this example to Jalen McCleskey:seam_throwOftentimes, the defense is not in position, and that makes Rudolph’s read much clearer, leading to plays like that.They also have “shot” plays that they’ll use off the quick snap, like this verticals concept that they used a handful of times on Saturday:stack_vertsFinally, they will often use their new plays off the quick snap, like this touchdown pass to James Washington on an out-n-up route. The actual play concept was a mesh/inside cross with the inside receivers, but the corner (who was out of position in the first place) bit on the route and Rudolph made the right decision to throw to Washington for an easy touchdown.outnupThe quick snap has now become an integral part of the Cowboy offense, and it serves as an outlet for both their base plays and their newer, more creative ones. Keep an eye out for what they do off their bye week at Kansas with the aid of extra preparation.What’s your favorite/least favorite thing about OSU’s offense?

Jasprit Bumrah scary for opposition batsmen, would not want to face him: Virat Kohli

first_img Rajarshi Gupta MelbourneDecember 30, 2018UPDATED: December 30, 2018 12:51 IST Jasprit Bumrah is the leading wicket-taker in the series with 20 wickets in three Tests so far (AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSKohli praised Bumrah for his attitude after the pacer’s 9-wicket haul helped India win the Boxing Day TestKohli said Bumrah always thinks of wickets when he looks at any pitchBumrah was named man-of-the-match for his sterling performance at the MCGVirat Kohli lauded Jasprit Bumrah after his star pacer won the man-of-the-match award with his nine-wicket haul in the Boxing Day Test which India won by 137 runs.Bumrah picked six wickets in the first innings and three in the second as India demolished Australia to win their first ever Boxing Day Test Down Under on Sunday.Kohli said Bumrah would is now a scary proposition for opposition batsmen and he wouldn’t want to face him.Bumrah picked up 9 for 86 in the third Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground to record the best haul by an Indian pacer in Australia.”I think the fact that he was showing amazing levels of fitness and energy in white-ball cricket, hence, he was so good because he was not giving runs with the new ball, he was getting wickets and then he would come back in the death overs and not one loose delivery.”He was training like he wanted to play Test cricket. The mindset he has is what separates him from anyone else in the world. He looks at a pitch and he doesn’t think it’s a hard toil. He thinks wickets, he thinks ‘how can I make a breakthrough?’. Your mindset separates you from the rest.”The way he has matured in Test cricket and the areas he is bowling so soon, so quickly in his Test career is a very scary sign for all the batsmen around the world. I wouldn’t want to face Jasprit Bumrah to be honest, because once he’s on a roll he can really crank it up,” Kohli said at the press conference on Sunday.advertisementThe Indian skipper is full of praise for star quick Jasprit Bumrah! #AUSvIND pic.twitter.com/LRwUY1Fswlcricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) December 30, 2018Bumrah has 20 wickets from three Tests in the ongoing series and has clearly been the standout bowler so far. He finished his first year in Test cricket with 49 wickets across South Africa, England and Australia.Bumrah also recorded five-wicket hauls in South Africa, England and Australia – becoming the first Asian pacer to do that in the same calendar year. He credited the Indian domestic circuit for helping him become the bowler he is today.Kohli, who was criticised for some of his decisions as captain, said he did not read opinions of other people but strived to do what was best for the team.Allan Border had been surprised with India’s decision to not enforce the follow-on after taking a 292-run lead in the first innings. Many others felt rain over the weekend could hamper India’s chances of sealing a historic win.”It’s a good thing I don’t read any comments or opinions (on not enforcing the follow on). I wanted us to bat more, and add some more runs, because batting would be difficult on day four and five.”We knew that it would be tough for Australia, but credit to our bowlers, especially Jasprit (Bumrah). The three fast bowlers have broken the record for most wickets by pacers in a calendar year for a team, which is brilliant. I certainly feel proud as a captain when they bowl in partnerships. No one is looking to out-bowl each other,” Kohli said.Virat Kohli is obsessed #AUSvIND pic.twitter.com/XMyETnDWkBcricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) December 30, 2018Relief was writ large on Kohli’s face after India wrapped up victory on the final day. The entire first session was washed out due to rain but India did not take long to secure a well-deserved win.Kohli also lauded opener Hanuma Vihari for his gutsy performance. After KL Rahul and Murali Vijay flopped in Adelaide and Perth, India decided to open with debutant Mayank Agarwal and Hanuma Vihari.While Agarwal scored 75 and 42, Vihari did not get many runs but impressed his captain with a resolute and stubborn show in the first innings which Kohli admitted made it easier for him and Pujara to stitch up a strong partnership”Our first-class cricket is amazing, which is why we won. Credit must go to first-class set-up in India, which challenges our fast bowlers in India, and that helps them abroad.”Agarwal showed great character on Boxing Day. And Pujara has always been composed, so we just wanted a big partnership. And the fact that Vihari batted so long in the first innings, it allowed us to bat more confidently. And Rohit’s 60-odd as well,” the 30-year-old skipper said.Also Read | We are not going to stop, ready for Sydney: Virat Kohli after historic Boxing Day Test winAlso Read | Tim Paine cries foul after Australia lose: We served India pitches that suit themAlso Read | Boxing Day Test: Virat Kohli shares dressing room photos after crushing AustraliaadvertisementFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Enbridge lowballing pipeline cost leaked shadow CIA emails

first_img(Video above of APTN story on leaked Stratfor emails discussing Canada and the U.S.)Check out previous APTN National News partnership with WikiLeaksBy Jorge BarreraAPTN National NewsEnbridge is likely lowballing the Northern Gateway pipeline’s projected $5.5 billion price tag which could triple in cost by the time it’s completed and see the Chinese end up financing most of it, according to internal emails written by senior analysts with a private international intelligence firm known as the “shadow CIA.”The internal emails, from Texas-based intelligence firm Stratfor, were obtained by whistle-blowing website WikiLeaks. APTN National News gained access to the emails through an investigative partnership organized by WikiLeaks.WikiLeaks began publishing the first of the nearly 5 million emails on Feb. 27. The emails range from 2004 to December 2011.Stratfor has a global client list that includes major corporations and U.S. agencies, along with the RCMP and Canadian government departments like Foreign Affairs and Natural Resources Canada.The emails show Stratfor officials have been monitoring the opposition to the tar sands and the proposed Enbridge pipeline to ship Alberta bitumen to the British Columbia coast. Stratfor analysts, however, questioned Enbridge’s stated price-tag for its controversial Northern Gateway Pipeline which seemed low for a project that would cross the Canadian Rockies.Peter Zeihan, Stratfor’s vice-president of analysis, said he expected the price tag triple and that Chinese state-owned Sinopec, which is part of the project, would likely pick up most of the bill.“While technically possible, going over the Canadian Rockies would be a technical challenge to say the least. I’m guess that the price tag on this would easily go above $15b (sic),” writes Zeihan, in the Jan. 21, 2011 email. “There’s a very good reason why all the crude goes south on flat land to the Midwest. So not impossible, but China would have to pony up for all of that itself.”The comments emerged during a discussion on a news story on China’s decision to help finance the pipeline project, which is heavily opposed by many First Nations communities and environmental groups.An Enbridge spokesman, however, said the company stands by its projected cost for the project.“It is a figure we use that we expect is going to be the cost to construct the pipeline,” said Todd Nogier, spokesperson for Enbridge. “Our funding partners, participants and Enbridge have financial arrangements. Whatever cost escalations that might occur, that is not something we are dealing with at the moment.”The Stratfor emails also reveal that one of the intelligence firm’s analysts used his younger brother, a Canadian trade official currently in Japan, as a source on the Enbridge pipeline.Mark Schroeder, Stratfor’s Africa analyst, contacted his brother, Alan Schroeder, who, according to his LinkedIn account, is a trade official with the Canadian embassy in Tokyo, to get information.Mark Schroeder asked Alan Schroeder what he knew about the Enbridge pipeline and the port in Prince Rupert, B.C., which Stratfor analysts speculated could be the end point for the Enbridge pipeline.“We had a little talk this morning at work about the infrastructure plans for Prince Rupert,” wrote Schroeder, on Jan. 21, 2011. “Have you heard any more talk on plans for expanding infrastructure there? Some folks are real interested (stuff like what port changes they have in mind in addition to new pipelines that are possible).”Alan Schroeder, using a Gmail account, responded by saying he didn’t know too much about the Enbridge pipeline because it was a new project, but speculated it could be ready by 2016.“Enbridge is the entity that is working on it. There is quite a bit of interest and Sinopec has committed $100 million to the project. There is still a lot of preparatory work that needs to get done, and perhaps that’s why I’m not very familiar with the project…If everything runs smoothly it could be operational by the end of 2016,” he wrote.Mark Schroeder then copied and pasted his brother’s answer into an email to Strafor’s analysts and identified him as a “Stratfor Canadian source,” code number CA012, with a reliability rate of “four.”Nogier said Enbridge has looked at Prince Rupert as potential end point for the project, but the company concluded that Kitimat, B.C., was the safest option for the pipeline’s end point.jbarrera@aptn.calast_img read more

Bangladesh opposition head under virtual house arrest

first_imgDhaka- Bangladesh’s opposition accused authorities of placing their leader under virtual house arrest Thursday as tens of thousands of troops were deployed across the country ahead of elections next month.Amid growing violence in the build-up to the January 5 general election, the main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) said police were barring anyone from visiting their leader Khaleda Zia at her home in Dhaka.The move comes after Zia, a two-time former premier and arch rival of current Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, called for supporters to stage a mass march on the capital this Sunday aimed at scuppering the polls. The BNP is one of 21 opposition parties which are boycotting the elections over Hasina’s refusal to stand aside and allow a neutral caretaker government to organise the contest.The country’s largest Islamist party, Jamaat-e-Islami, has also been banned from taking part.“Since yesterday she has been under virtual house arrest,” BNP vice-president Shamsher Mobin Chowdhury told AFP.“Police are not allowing anyone, including party leaders and activists, to meet her. It is part of a government move to foil the December 29 march for democracy.”Deputy commissioner of Dhaka police Lutful Kabir confirmed that extra officers had been deployed outside Zia’s home in the upmarket Gulshan neighbourhood but said the move was designed to “enhance her security”.Police confirmed two senior BNP members, including a current lawmaker, were detained outside Zia’s home on Wednesday night but denied the arrests were made because they wanted to meet her.With Hasina and her Awami League party determined the election goes ahead, troops are being sent to nearly every corner of the country at the end of what has been an unprecedented year for political violence.A total of 269 people have been killed since January, either in protests at the elections or by Islamists who have seen several of their leaders sentenced to death from crimes dating back to the 1971 independence war.The authorities are expecting Sunday’s rally to further inflame tensions with Zia having made clear its purpose is to force a last-minute cancellation of the polls.“This march is to say ‘no’ to these farcical elections and to say ‘yes’ to democracy,” she said in a speech on Tuesday.Troop deploymentsThe troop deployments are expected to infuriate the BNP which has accused the government of trying to set the army up against normal civilians.Election Commission spokesman S.M. Asaduzzaman said that troops would be deployed in at least 59 of the country’s 64 districts.“They’ll be used as a striking force if there is any violence and they will patrol important areas, streets and highways,” he told AFP.While a small number of soldiers had begun taking up positions earlier this week, military spokesman Muhammad Reza-ul Karim said the mass deployment began Thursday and will continue until January 9.“The troops have been deployed at the request of the Election Commission… in an effort to ensure free, fair and peaceful elections,” Karim said in a statement.The soldiers would initially be deployed to the main towns and cities in the districts before then moving into more rural areas.He did not say how many troops were being deployed but local media put the number at around 50,000.The boycotts have highlighted the growing political polarisation in the country of 153 million.While Bangladesh has had a deeply troubled history since independence, with nearly two dozen coups, this year has been the bloodiest since it broke free from its former rulers in Islamabad 42 years ago.A constable was burned to death in a petrol bomb attack on a police vehicle Tuesday night while two more people succumbed to their burn injuries Wednesday.Much of the violence has been blamed on supporters of Jamaat-e-Islami, one of whose leaders was hanged earlier this month for war crimes.Three rounds of UN-brokered talks between the government and opposition have failed to resolve the dispute between the Awami League and the BNP whose leaders despise each other.The United States, European Union and the Commonwealth countries have announced they will not send observers to the election, seriously denting its credibility.Strikes and blockades have crippled the economy, affecting millions of poor farmers and the urban middle class in what is the world’s eighth most populous country and one of the poorest in Asia.The strikes have done further damage to an economy already reeling from the impact on the crucial garment sector from a factory collapse in April which sparked widespread industrial unrest.last_img read more

UN environment chief says green plan central to African development

Klaus Töepfer, the Executive Director of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP), hailed the gathering, officially called the Partners’ Conference on the Implementation of the Action Plan for the Environment Initiative of the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD). “Today’s meeting shows that [the international community] remains determined to help Africans place their countries on a path of development and prosperity,” he said.He stressed that the NEPAD environment plan would “help African countries address the continent’s environmental challenges, while encouraging sustainable development in one of the poorest regions in the world.”This effort, he added, will also contribute to the success of the Millennium Development Goals, a set of time-specific, measurable targets – including the halving of extreme poverty by 2015 and stopping the spread of HIV/AIDS – agreed to by the world’s countries in 2000. read more

USDA to buy wild blueberries amid price drop

USDA to buy wild blueberries amid price drop PORTLAND, Maine – The U.S. Department of Agriculture will buy up to 30 million pounds of wild blueberries to help stabilize prices and supply in one of Maine’s signatures industries.The members of Maine’s congressional delegation told The Associated Press on Thursday that the agency will pay up to $13 million for the wild blueberries.The bailout could help spell the end of low prices to consumers on wild blueberries, which are harvested commercially in Maine and Canada.They differ from the fatter cultivated blueberries in that they are smaller, have a more intense taste and are richer in antioxidants. Maine is by far the biggest wild blueberry producing state in the country, and it also produces about a quarter of North America’s total blueberries, according to the University of Illinois’s website.The USDA didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.The purchase comes after the state’s legislative delegation asked for it in a letter to the federal agency in which they said prices of frozen wild blueberries have fallen by as much as half in the last five years. The legislators asked the agency to buy the berries for its domestic food-assistance programs.Frozen wild blueberries slid from 90 cents per pound in 2011 to 60 cents per pound in 2014 and continue to drop, the Wild Blueberry Commission of Maine has said. The commission has also said two back-to-back years of big crops have created a backlog of wild blueberries.Nancy McBrady, executive director of the blueberry commission, said the low value of the Canadian dollar also has hurt Maine’s growers. She said Canadian growers, which are centred in the Maritime Provinces, are at a “tremendous competitive advantage” when selling in the U.S. and internationally because of the stronger U.S. dollar.“And the competition from cultivated blueberries is omnipresent,” she said. “The prices of wild blueberries have dropped, so our farmers are earning less for our blueberries.”In Maine, wild blueberries are mostly harvested in the blueberry barrens of the state’s rural Downeast region. The state has some 44,000 acres of wild blueberries and it relies on the berries for about $250 million per year in economic value, officials have said.Rep. Chellie Pingree said the purchase will help the blueberry industry as well as food assistance programs in need of a healthy fruit product.“It makes a lot of sense for the federal government to make this purchase to help ease the surplus of frozen blueberries and at the same time supply food assistance programs with a very healthy, high quality food,” she said. by Patrick Whittle, The Associated Press Posted Apr 14, 2016 1:09 pm MDT Last Updated Apr 14, 2016 at 2:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Opinion Why the US womens soccer team could and should win the

June 30, 2015 – Montreal, Canada – Players of the United States celebrate scoring during the semifinal between Germany and the United States at the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup. The United States beat Germany 2-0 and moves on to the Final. Credit: Courtesy of TNS.Long gone are the days of Brandi Chastain ripping off her jersey to show the whole world what a woman’s sports bra really looks like during the ever-so-exciting 1999 Women’s World Cup final.As 11 players took the field on July 10, 1999 at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., thousands of young girls, and boys, wore their favorite number nine jersey, representing none other than soccer legend Mia Hamm. Fans from across the country packed 90,000 strong into the large stadium to cheer on the USWNT as they faced off against China. Hamm and Chastain would both score in penalty kicks, with Chastain’s sealing the deal, and doing so would go down in soccer and sporting history and earn them the name “The 99ers.”While the 99ers are the last American team to have won the World Cup, that doesn’t mean they were a better team. In the mid to late 1990s, women’s soccer wasn’t an up-and-coming American pastime. However, in 1999, Americans — most for the first time — gathered to watch the U.S. team in the World Cup final. The biggest and most-watched moment came right as Chastain’s final penalty kick reached the back of the net, and dozens of cameras focused on her as she ripped off her jersey and exposed her black sports bra. What was known as the greatest female soccer match to date has silently faded into the past.Today the names Hamm and Chastain might not even register to the newer or younger fans and the once most popular number nine jersey features a new name on the back, along with nearly all the other numbers (excluding captain Christie Rampone, who is the only remaining 99er on the team).Today U.S. women’s soccer has a new face; or shall I say faces.If one were to attend a USWNT soccer match today, they would see a sea of the numbers: 20, 13 and 1. All-time international goal scoring forward Abby Wambach wears the powerful number 20 jersey. Superstar and young-faced Alex Morgan wears number 13. Fierce and controversial Hope Solo wears the top goalkeeper number 1 jersey. Although the vast majority of fans choose these three numbers, the beauty about this modern team is that every number on the field is echoed on the backs of dozens, if not hundreds, of fans in the stands.You see, this team isn’t just built on one or two stars. This team has the power of 23 behind it. 23 players make up this 2015 World Cup team and 23 players will go down in history if they can complete the job.All 11 players on the field and the 12 sitting on the bench are known by nearly every spectator, and every player has her own fan base cheering them on. One doesn’t just get fans because of her looks or social media posts, although it certainly does help. These women can really play the game of soccer. This 2015 team doesn’t have 11 starters, it has have 23 of them. While some players certainly get more time on the pitch than others, the success of this team has come from the ability of any individual player to be switched in and out and for the team to still succeed, and succeeded it has.This team has come a long way in just a few short weeks. After being placed in the tough Group D, otherwise known as the “group of death,” the U.S. team pulled in seven points after two wins and a draw to secure the top spot in its group and a high-placed seed in the elimination rounds. And after giving up only one goal in the first group round game against Australia, Solo and the outstanding U.S. defense has had a total of five straight shutout matches. Their latest came from Tuesday night’s matchup against top-ranked Germany, when the U.S. scored two goals in the second half to secure a spot in its fourth Women’s World Cup final.Hope Solo, goalkeeper of the United States, reacts during the World Cup Group D match against Sweden at Winnipeg Stadium in Winnipeg, Canada, on Friday, June 12, 2015. Credit: Courtesy of TNS.A common phrase said about this team is that “you don’t want to play the U.S. team after a loss,” and this team is still playing after a devastating loss.In 2011, the last World Cup, the U.S. team lost to Japan in the finals during penalty kicks. Irony? I think not. The devastating loss still echos in each game since then, and the players are not quick to forget it. Although they won the 2012 Olympics, the last four years have brought nothing but hardships for this team, despite a winning record. The departure of two coaches, injuries of key players and the neverending controversial struggle with Solo off the field.Despite all of that, though, this team is the stronger team. It has three of the top forwards with Wambach, Morgan and Sydney Leroux. It has veteran captain Rampone who already knows what it takes to win a World Cup. It has the best defense in the tournament led by newcomer and rising star defender Julie Johnston, who has played every minute of the six tournament games. It has power and speed in the midfield with Megan Rapinoe, Carli Lloyd and Lauren Holliday. Not to mention it has Hope — Solo that is — who is widely regarded as the best female goalkeeper in the world to ever play.Could history repeat itself if Japan advances against England Wednesday night, or can the U.S. learn from its mistakes and make history as the only women’s team to wear three stars over its team crest representing three World Cup championships? While the 15ers may not be the new nickname, this team deserves to go down in history, despite a gold or not. It’s been 16 years since the American team has stood on top the podium with the golden trophy above their heads. Sixteen years without the title of “World Champions.”“World” or not, this team is about as champion as they get, and this team has given America something to cheer about again in women’s sports. read more

Teenager died of meningitis after tweeting Lol Did not expect to be rushed

first_imgA teenager who died of meningitis was discharged from hospital despite her mother showing doctors a school letter warning about the disease, an inquest heard.Isabel Gentry, 16, was released by medics and told her mother ‘”I can’t believe they’re sending me home, I feel so ill,” the hearing was told.Earlier she posted on Twitter: “Lol I knew something was up. Did not expect I’d be rushed to hospital in an ambulance, how peak.”Her frantic mother had shown hospital staff a letter they were sent from her college warning about meningitis but were told it was “just a virus”, an inquest heard.She was sent home until her condition deteriorated so badly that she was unable to communicate, an inquest heard.Izzy had been studying for her AS exams when she began complaining of a bad headache, vomiting and fainting.

But after being seen at the Bristol Royal Infirmary she was sent home in the early hours of the morning – only to be readmitted 24 hours later when she got worse.The teenager died in the intensive care unit on May 20, 2016, after an MRI scan showed irrecoverable brain swelling had caused brain stem death.Her mother, Claire Booty, told the inquest the family had raised concerns about meningitis with a call operator, paramedics and doctors.She said: “Given the symptoms were flu-like, I was given no guidance about what to look out for if her condition deteriorated. Izzy wasn’t given a chance.” Her mother told the inquest: “When I got home about 6pm she was complaining of a headache and took paracetamol about 7pm.”Her symptoms became worse, and during the evening my husband rang and we discussed it.”I rang 111 to seek further advice. In particular my husband and I discussed meningitis and the letter.”She looked for a rash on the teenage girl’s body, but told the inquest that the two male paramedics who attended were reluctant to examine her.Paramedics Gary White and Christian Chambers, of South West Ambulance Service, took the teenager to hospital in an ambulance.Mrs Booty said that the pair appeared “understandably reluctant” to examine Izzy as she was a teenage girl.Mrs Booty said: “They seemed fixated about an upset stomach, but this wasn’t one of the symptoms she was complaining of and this wasn’t one of the symptoms we had raised when we called 111.” Izzy's last tweet Izzy’s last tweetCredit:Twitter After being admitted at 1am, Isabel was seen by a doctor who sent her home after five hours – although she could hardly walk to her mother’s car.Mrs Booty told the inquest: “I was concerned that the examination was not particularly thorough and that the doctor was distracted.”The school letter we had seemed to make no difference to the risk assessment which was undertaken.”Nurses reassured the pair that “it was just a virus” and she would recover in a couple of days, the inquest was told.Isabel struggled to walk to the car and said: “I can’t believe they’re sending me home Mum, I feel so ill.” They seemed fixated about an upset stomach, but this wasn’t one of the symptoms she was complaining of and this wasn’t one of the symptoms we had raised when we called 111Izzy’s mother Izzy fell ill while studying for her exams, the inquest in Flax Bourton, Bristol, was told.

Your crash course in Why a crackdown on black money has left

first_img Share7 Tweet Email “The Rs500 and Rs1,000 notes hoarded by anti-national and anti-social elements will become just worthless pieces of paper.”Ordinary citizensHowever, it is not just India’s criminals that like to deal in cash. The country has a largely cash economy with an overwhelming majority of transactions being completed through physical tender.Law-abiding citizens were bound to get caught in the crossfire, but Modi reckoned they wouldn’t mind.“Experience tells us that ordinary citizens are always ready to make sacrifices and face difficulties for the benefit of the nation,” he said. “I have full confidence that every citizen will stand up and participate.” 15 Comments Your crash course in… Why a crackdown on ‘black money’ has left Indians queuing for cash A ban on 500 and 1,000 rupee notes has rocked the economy – but it might only be a short-term sting. 20,777 Views Sunday 4 Dec 2016, 9:00 PM https://jrnl.ie/3115959 Take me to Fora By Fora Staff Get Fora’s NEW daily digest of the morning’s key business news: Image: Altaf Qadri/AP/Press Association Images Dec 4th 2016, 9:00 PM Short URL Bank queues in India Source: Altaf Qadri/AP/Press Association ImagesPeople have been given until 30 December to exchange invalid notes for the new ones or to deposit leftover cash into their bank accounts.However, there is a daily Rs2,000 (€27.50) cap on ATM withdrawals, while only Rs4,000 (€55) can be exchanged at banks. There is a Rs250,000 (€3,550) limit on the amount of money that can be lodged to an account.Farmers with crop loans and families with upcoming weddings – which are big in India – were given larger withdrawal limits of Rs25,000 (€345) and Rs250,000 per week respectively.‘Day of rage’ Unsurprisingly, demonetisation has put an enormous strain on the country’s banking system.News outlets published images of huge queues of people anxious to exchange their worthless cash for new currency and there was chaos across the country with some banks running out of the new notes.There were also reports of people becoming ill from exhaustion after standing in line for hours.India’s opposition parties accused the government of mismanaging the situation and invited frustrated citizens to protest in a “day of rage”. Source: Bikas Das/AP/Press Association ImagesThousands took to the streets across various cities this week, but the BBC questioned whether there was a genuine groundswell of opposition to Modi’s ban.The broadcaster’s Asian correspondents said despite the inconvenience – particularly for poorer citizens – the majority of Indian people are in favour of the rupee cull.‘Black money’As well as dismantling criminal activity, the ban promised to rid India of ‘black money’ stashed away by otherwise law-abiding citizens.‘Black money’ is code for tax evasion, naturally a big problem in such a cash-centred economy.According to official government figures, only 1% of Indians paid income tax in 2013 – in a nation of 1.3 billion people. The majority of revenue is currently collected indirectly through sales and VAT.As well as the cap on how much cash can be withdrawn and exchanged at banks, the government warned that deposits above Rs250,000 will be investigated by tax authorities.If a citizen is found to have evaded tax, they will be charged the full bill on top of a fine worth up to 200% of the tax owed.Earlier this week, the finance minister relaxed this rule as part of a new scheme, according to a Reuters report. In a bid to encourage tax dodgers to come clean, they can now pay half their tax bill and put another quarter of it into a trust account for four years. India’s finance minister Arun Jaitley Source: Mark Schiefelbein/AP/Press Association ImagesHow has it worked so far?Unsurprisingly, Indian businesses have been badly hurt by the rupee ban.Pundits have warned that the country – which recently overtook China as the world’s fastest-growing major economy – will see a major slowdown in its boom because of it.CNN reported that the ban will take at least 1% off India’s current 7.1% GDP growth rate. One commentator told the American news outlet he wouldn’t be surprised if it lost 3% by the end of the current financial year.That said, Modi was elected with a mandate to eliminate widespread tax evasion, and a wider tax base would allow for more spending in public services which would stimulate the economy.Some economists have questioned the decision to introduce the Rs2,000 note – arguing that the larger denomination note would surely make it easier for illegal transactions.After a long silence, the Reserve Bank of India’s chairman Urijit Patel said the new currency “has been designed to make it hard to counterfeit” because they are smaller and thicker.The downside of the new shape, however, is that it doesn’t fit ATMs. The machines have to be reconfigured to cater for the new notes which has added to the backlog. It wouldn’t be surprising if the 30 December deadline was extended as a result.Time will tell whether Modi’s gamble was worth it. But if the policy manages to fatten up the country’s tax-to-GDP ratio, a measure of tax raised against economic output, from 17% to the OECD average of 34%, the short-term sting could propel India’s economic boom even further.Written by Conor McMahon and posted on Fora.ie Image: Altaf Qadri/AP/Press Association Images INDIA’S PREMIER DROPPED a bombshell a few weeks ago when he announced an overnight ban on 500 and 1,000 rupee notes.In an address to the nation, prime minister Narendra Modi said culling the country’s largest denomination notes – which are worth the equivalent of about €7 and €14 respectively – would “strengthen the hands of the common man in the fight against corruption”.The invalid currency will be swapped for new Rs500 and Rs2,000 notes with a limit on how many old notes can be deposited and exchanged.Criminals with wads of ill-gotten and counterfeit cash are the target of the ban, but regular citizens have also felt the pain – which is actually part of the government’s plan.With that in mind, let’s look at why India has dumped the bulk of its cash in a bid to clamp down on corruption – and ‘black money’.CorruptionWhen Modi announced that Rs500 and Rs1,000 notes were invalid from 8 November, he said the bulk of India’s cash was tainted by criminal activity.“The magnitude of cash in circulation is directly linked to the level of corruption,” he said.“Inflation becomes worse through the deployment of cash earned in corrupt ways. The poor have to bear the brunt of this. It has a direct effect on the purchasing power of the poor and the middle class.” Indian prime minister Narendra Modi Source: Hau Dinh/AP/Press Association ImagesThe old notes are easy to counterfeit, he said, and widely used to buy weapons by criminal groups.They were also “stashed under the beds of government officers”, he said, and used by land buyers to bribe housing officials.A ban on the commonly used notes would have a major impact on illegal activity, Modi promised.

Samsung Promises Fix to Nintendo Switch Smart TV Issue

first_img The latest video game hardware craze isn’t called the Nintendo Switch for nothing. The device’s entire gimmick is about switching between playing it on the go as a tablet and playing it at home as a console docked to your TV. And performing that switching is very seamless and cool.What isn’t so seamless and cool is an issue Switch owners have been experiencing when plugging the machine into their new Samsung Smart TVs. One of the features that make these recent televisions so smart is their ability to change HDMI inputs on their own. So in theory, if you have multiple devices plugged in, the TV will automatically and conveniently switch to that device when you turn it on.The only problem is, even when it sleep mode, it appears a docked Switch still sends a signal to a Samsung TV, causing it to unexpectedly switch even when there’s nothing on the screen. Since it’s out of players’ control, this could be pretty annoying, especially if the TV is switching away from whatever they were actually watching or playing. Imagine preparing to finish off a tough Dark Souls battle only for the TV to decide it’s time for you to die. Affected customers sent in their complaints to Samsung since similar issues involving devices like Apple TV demonstrate this isn’t a Nintendo-exclusive problem.Fortunately, Samsung has listened. In a statement given to The Verge, the company said, “we will be issuing a Firmware update early this summer that will address this behavior and provide the level of convenience that was intended.”Good news! Soon enough you can enjoy Zelda, and all the other Nintendo Switch Games That Aren’t Zelda hooked up to your Samsung Smart TV without fear.

Delhi court charges Kuldeep Sengar with rape under POCSO in Unnao case

first_imgDelhi’s Tis Hazari court on Friday, August 9, charged the expelled Bharatiya Janata Party MLA, Kuldeep Sengar, with the rape of a minor girl in Unnao.The court has passed the order on charges under relevant sections of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (Pocso) Act.District Judge Dharmesh Sharma also framed charges against Sengar’s accomplice Shashi Singh for kidnapping the victim. There are five related cases against Sengar and others in the Unnao rape-accident case.The Supreme Court on August 1 had transferred all the cases linked to the Unnao rape survivor to Delhi from Lucknow. The development came days after the victim, who had accused Kuldeep Sengar of raping her in 2017, was severely injured after a car in which she was travelling in with her relatives and lawyer Mahendra Singh collided with a truck. The four-time legislator was expelled from BJP a day after the incident. He was suspended from the party in 2018 when the charges against him first attracted nationwide attention.THE UNNAO RAPE CASEThe Unnao case made headlines when the victim and her mother attempted self-immolation outside Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s house, seeking justice, on April 8, 2018.Sengar’s brother has been accused of beating up the victim’s father after tying him to a tree.

Texas Has Nearly 60 Billion In Tax Breaks – Some Wont Survive

first_img To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Jennifer Rabb of Rice University’s Baker Institute’s notes many of the breaks are designed to ease the burden on lower-income Texans. “Sales tax exempts food, medicine, doctor visits, residential electricity, and all of those things add up to about $7.5 billion for the current fiscal year,” Rabb said. “So that’s a big exemption, but I think it’s one that most people would prefer to remain in the law.”Other tax breaks are written to avoid double taxation. Cars and trucks, for example, are exempt from sales taxes because they’re subject to a separate motor vehicle tax. A number of corporate tax breaks are designed to prevent “pyramiding” – taxing components or energy used in manufacturing, then taxing the finished goods as well.Difficult isn’t impossible, though. Both Ramsey and Rabb said some breaks are likely to be on the chopping block.View Fullscreen 00:00 /00:50 Listencenter_img X Stuart Seeger/FlickrTexas State Capitol, Austin TXMajor tasks facing the next Legislature include passing a budget, reforming the state’s broken school finance system, and limiting property tax increases. One solution lawmakers will consider to achieve all three is ending tax breaks.The state comptroller’s office issued a report listing $59.8 billion in current tax breaks, but ending enough of those to make a difference will be tougher than it sounds.“If I say I’m not going to raise taxes but I take away an exemption that someone has been enjoying in order to extract some more money from them, that’s going to feel like a tax increase to them,” said Ross Ramsey, executive editor of The Texas Tribune.  Sharelast_img read more

Mack Clifton (mackcliftonformayor.com)Mack CliftonClifton is a New Jersey native who moved to Baltimore in 2005. He says he is a minister and author and counts Queen Elizabeth II, actor Benedict Cumberbatch among his distant relatives.“We should not live in fear of whether or not we can care for our families, whether or not our children will be harassed by uncouth police officers, whether or not we will be victims of violent crime,” he writes on his website.He has not held any elected office, but currently is a member of the 231st Transportation Battalion, a veteran’s organization. Stephanie Rawlings-Blake (rawlingsblake.com)Baltimore City Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-BlakeThe mayor has been taking a beating in the court of public opinion since the April unrest that followed Freddie Gray’s death. Residents are worried about the city’s climbing murder rate. As of Sept. 9 there had been a total of 229 homicides in Baltimore this year. In 2014 there were a total of 211.Some accused the mayor of telling police to stand down as city stores were looted during the unrest. She also took heat for the curfew that was put in place as police and lawmakers tried to calm the city.However, Rawlings-Blake is not without her successes. She is the secretary of the Democratic National Committee and also the president of the U.S. Conference of Mayors – she is the first African American, the first woman and the first Baltimore mayor to hold this position.She is expected to open her campaign headquarters in Remington later this month. Maryland State Senator Catherine PughWhen Maryland State Senator Catherine Pugh and Baltimore City Councilman Carl Stokes entered the mayoral race on September 8, they entered an already crowded field. The two made their announcements in The Baltimore Sun.This is 65-year-old Pugh’s second run at the mayor’s office. In 2011, she lost to Stephanie Rawlings-Blake in the Democratic primary. She currently represents the 40th legislative district and serves as the senate majority leader.The Pennsylvania native told The Sun that as mayor, she would unify all of Baltimore’s diverse parts.Baltimore City Councilman Carl StokesThis is also 65-year-old Stokes’ second time running for mayor. In 1999, he lost to Martin O’Malley. He has already set up his campaign website at carlstokes2016.com.“The problems we face – too few jobs, too much crime, high taxes, and far too many under performing schools – are old problems that we have been dealing with in old ways without success,” Stokes said in a message posted to his campaign website on Sept. 7.Stokes represents the twelfth district. He serves as chair of the city council’s Taxation, Finance and Economic Development committee. He is also the vice-chair of the Education and Executive Appointments committees.Both lawmakers were highly visible during the April unrest that followed the death of Baltimore man Freddie Gray in police custody. Stokes made headlines when he appeared on CNN and argued that calling protesters thugs is similar to calling them “niggers.”We don’t have to call them by names such as that,” Stokes told CNN. We don’t have to do that.”Cameras caught Pugh as she squared off against Fox News reporter Geraldo Rivera. “We need police to respect our neighborhood,” she told Rivera as the two stood in the middle of a large crowd of protestors. “We need police to respect our neighborhoods. Black lives matter.”Some of the other candidates in the mayoral race include: Sheila Dixon (sheiladixonformayor.com)Former Mayor Sheila DixonDixon was the first candidate to announce she was running against Rawlings-Blake. She is set to hold an ice cream social-themed campaign event at the B&O Railroad Museum on September 13.On her campaign site, she boasts about the gun offender registry, the single stream recycling program, and the popular Downtown Circulator as accomplishments of her time as mayor. There is no mention of the scandal over the alleged misappropriation of gift cards that lead to her resignation in 2010.Before announcing her candidacy, Dixon did an interview with The AFRO where she said that a lot of the city’s most deep-rooted problems have not gotten the attention they deserve.“Dealing with systemic issues, for elected officials, is not something they focus on because it’s long-term,” Dixon said. Richard Black (voteblackformayor.com)Accountant Richard Black announced his candidacy on August 24. On his campaign site, he promises to bring to the office “a strong desire to diagnose issues and provide cost-effective and practical solutions.”He says he would like to lower the Mayor’s salary to the average salary in Baltimore. He also says that he thinks the mayor should lower the murder rate or not get paid.Black has a lot of work to do to establish himself as household name– just 43 people have liked his campaign’s Facebook page. Calvin Allen Young III (electcalvinyoung.com)Calvin Allen Young IIIYoung is an engineer and graduate of Harvard Business School. At 25, he’s the youngest mayoral candidate. Young has not yet held any political office. At 17, served as a member of the Baltimore City youth commission.“After graduating from Harvard, Calvin decided the best way to use his education and experience would be to give back to Baltimore and to help others achieve their dreams,” the site reads.The primary election is April 26, 2016.last_img read more

First screenshot and engine details for Elder Scrolls Skyrim revealed

first_imgWhen Bethesda announced the newest Elder Scrolls game, Skyrim, at December’s Spike TV VGAs, they didn’t exactly go into detail over how the game would be different from its predecessor, Oblivion. Thanks to Game Informer, though, we now have our first juicy details about Skyrim, namely in regards to the new engine powering it, as well as the first screenshot, seen above. AdChoices广告Here’s an overview of what’s new:• Skyrim will have an all new engine called the Creation Engine which will focus on draw distance, dynamic lighting, foliac and precipitation.• They are ditching SpeedTree in favor of their own foliage tech. You read that right: new foliage tech.• A new Radiant AI system will allow NPS to seem more intelligent. “In reality, the technology driving NPC behavior [in Oblivion wasn’t overly sophisticated,” Bethesda dryly quipped. You think?• NPCs will now react to your actions differently depending on your prior relationship with them. • Bethesda will use Havok Behavior tech for their animations.• There’s a new dynamic quest system which alters quests depending on your actions. For example, you might accept an assassination mission, but the game would fluidly change who you were sent to kill.• Yes, Virginia, Skyrim will have both dragons and mammoths.Eleven eleven eleven just can’t come soon enough.Read more at Game Informerlast_img read more

9 Data Science Myths Debunked

first_imgThe benefits of data science are evident for all to see. Not only does it equip you with the tools and techniques to make better business decisions, the predictive power of analytics also allows you to determine future outcomes – something that can prove to be crucial to businesses. Despite all these advantages, data science is a touchy topic for many businesses. It’s worth looking at some glaring stats that show why businesses are reluctant to adopt data science: Poor data across businesses and organizations – in both private and government costs the U.S economy close to $3 Trillion per year. Only 29% enterprises are able to properly leverage the power of Big Data and derive useful business value from it. These stats show a general lack of awareness or knowledge when it comes to data science. It could be due to some preconceived notions, or simply lack of knowledge and its application that seems to be a huge hurdle to these companies. In this article, we attempt to take down some of these notions and give a much clearer picture of what data science really is. Here are 5 of the most common myths or misconceptions in data science, and why are absolutely wrong: Data Science is just a fad, it won’t last long This is probably the most common misconception. Many tend to forget that although ‘data science’ is a recently coined term, this field of study is a cumulation of decades of research and innovation in statistical methodologies and tools. It has been in use since the 1960s or even before – just that the scale at which it was being used then was small. Back in the day, there were no ‘data scientists’, but just statisticians and economists who used the now unknown terms such as ‘data fishing’ or ‘data dredging’. Even the terms ‘ data analysis’ and ‘data mining’ only went mainstream in the 1990s, but they were in use way before that period. Data Science’s rise to fame has coincided with the exponential rise in the amount of data being generated every minute. The need to understand this information and make positive use of it led to an increase in the demand for data science. Now with Big Data and Internet of Things going wild, the rate of data generation and the subsequent need for its analysis will only increase. So if you think data science is a fad that will go away soon, think again. Data Science and Business Intelligence are the same Those who are unfamiliar with what data science and Business Intelligence actually entail often get confused, and think they’re one and the same. No, they’re not. Business Intelligence is an umbrella term for the tools and techniques that give answers to the operational and contextual aspects of your business or organization. Data science, on the other hand has more to do with collecting information in order to build patterns and insights. Learning about your customers or your audience is Business Intelligence. Understanding why something happened, or whether it will happen again, is data science. If you want to gauge how changing a certain process will affect your business, data science – not Business Intelligence – is what will help you. Data Science is only meant for large organizations with large resources Many businesses and entrepreneurs are wrongly of the opinion that data science is – or works best – only for large organizations. It is a wrongly perceived notion that you need sophisticated infrastructure to process and get the most value out of your data. In reality, all you need is a bunch of smart people who know how to get the best value of the available data. When it comes to taking a data-driven approach, there’s no need to invest a fortune in setting up an analytics infrastructure for an organization of any scale. There are many open source tools out there which can be easily leveraged to process large-scale data with efficiency and accuracy. All you need is a good understanding of the tools. It is difficult to integrate data science systems with the organizational workflow With the advancement of tech, one critical challenge that has now become very easy to overcome is to collaborate with different software systems at once. With the rise of general-purpose programming languages, it is now possible to build a variety of software systems using a single programming language. Take Python for example. You can use it to analyze your data, perform machine learning or develop neural networks to work on more complex data models. All this while, you can link your web API designed in Python to communicate with these data science systems. There are provisions being made now to also integrate codes written in different programming languages while ensuring smooth interoperability and no loss of latency. So if you’re wondering how to incorporate your analytics workflow in your organizational workflow, don’t worry too much. Data Scientists will be replaced by Artificial Intelligence soon Although there has been an increased adoption of automation in data science, the notion that the work of a data scientist will be taken over by an AI algorithm soon is rather interesting. Currently, there is an acute shortage of data scientists, as this McKinsey Global Report suggests. Could this change in the future? Will automation completely replace human efforts when it comes to data science? Surely machines are a lot better than humans at finding patterns; AI best the best go player, remember. This is what the common perception seems to be, but it is not true. However sophisticated the algorithms become in automating data science tasks, we will always need a capable data scientist to oversee them and fine-tune their performance. Not just that, businesses will always need professionals with strong analytical and problem solving skills with relevant domain knowledge. They will always need someone to communicate the insights coming out of the analysis to non-technical stakeholders. Machines don’t ask questions of data. Machines don’t convince people. Machines don’t understand the ‘why’. Machines don’t have intuition. At least, not yet. Data scientists are here to stay, and their demand is not expected to go down anytime soon. You need a Ph.D. in statistics to be a data scientist No, you don’t. Data science involves crunching numbers to get interesting insights, and it often involves the use of statistics to better understand the results. When it comes to performing some advanced tasks such as machine learning and deep learning, sure, an advanced knowledge of statistics helps. But that does not imply that people who do not have a degree in maths or statistics cannot become expert data scientists. Today, organizations are facing a severe shortage of data professionals capable of leveraging the data to get useful business insights. This has led to the rise of citizen data scientists – meaning professionals who are not experts in data science, but can use the data science tools and techniques to create efficient data models. These data scientists are no experts in statistics and maths, they just know the tool inside out, ask the right questions, and have the necessary knowledge of turning data into insights. Having an expertise of the data science tools is enough Many people wrongly think that learning a statistical tool such as SAS, or mastering Python and its associated data science libraries is enough to get the data scientist tag. While learning a tool or skill is always helpful (and also essential), by no means is it the only requisite to do effective data science. One needs to go beyond the tools and also master skills such as non-intuitive thinking, problem-solving, and knowing the correct practical applications of a tool to tackle any given business problem. Not just that, it requires you to have excellent communication skills to present your insights and findings related to the most complex of analysis to other stakeholders, in a way they can easily understand and interpret. So if you think that a SAS certification is enough to get you a high-paying data science job and keep it, think again. You need to have access to a lot of data to get useful insights Many small to medium-sized businesses don’t adopt a data science framework because they think it takes lots and lots of data to be able to use the analytics tools and techniques. Data when present in bulk, always helps, true, but don’t need hundreds of thousands of records to identify some pattern, or to extract relevant insights. Per IBM, data science is defined by the 4 Vs of data, meaning Volume, Velocity, Veracity and Variety. If you are able to model your existing data into one of these formats, it automatically becomes useful and valuable. Volume is important to an extent, but it’s the other three parameters that add the required quality. More data = more accuracy Many businesses collect large hordes of information and use the modern tools and frameworks available at their disposal for analyzing this data. Unfortunately, this does not always guarantee accurate results. Neither does it guarantee useful actionable insights or more value. Once the data is collected, the preliminary analysis on what needs to be done with the data is required. Then, we use the tools and frameworks at our disposal to extract the relevant insights and built an appropriate data model. These models need to be fine-tuned as per the processes for which they will be used. Then, eventually, we get the desired degree of accuracy from the model. Data in itself is quite useless. It’s how we work on it – more precisely, how effectively we work on it – that makes all the difference. So there you have it! Data science is one of the most popular skills to have in your resume today, but it is important to first clear all the confusions and misconceptions that you may have about it. Lack of information or misinformation can do more harm than good, when it comes to leveraging the power of data science within a business – especially considering it could prove to be a differentiating factor for its success and failure. Do you agree with our list? Do you think there are any other commonly observed myths around data science that we may have missed? Let us know.

Costa Rica faces strong competition as destination for US retirees

first_imgCosta Rica and Mexico have traditionally been the region’s preferred destinations for U.S. and Canadian retirees, but according to a report from the The Wall Street Journal, Panama, Belize and Nicaragua are increasingly competing with both countries.The report says that the number of U.S. citizens who receive pension payments in Panama increased by 65 percent from 2006-2011. In Nicaragua, the number doubled during the same period, from 595 retirees to 1,322.“These three countries offer packages of residency and breaks on taxes and fees that imitate Costa Rica’s pensionado program, which was introduced in 1971 and helped set the groundwork for a boom in retiree emigration from North America. Nicaragua added such a law in 2009, offering foreigners with retirement incomes tax breaks on everything from cars to construction materials,” the WSJ noted.The story also describes how last year Panama created a path to citizenship for retirement residents and introduced a new residency program for people under retirement age that has lowered requirements for investment in property, business and other ventures.Officials from Costa Rica’s National Tourism Chamber acknowledged the efforts of these three nations to attract retirees, but insisted that Costa Rica isn’t necessarily losing ground.The WSJ report also noted that crime and security problems are still a major concern for people interested in relocating to the region.“Security isn’t always adequate in the region. Mexico’s well-publicized drug war and escalating violence are starting to push Americans to look at new places for retirement, […] and Costa Rica’s petty crime such as theft and smash and grab muggings have increased in the past couple of years, along with home invasions,” added the story, also citing similar problems in all the other countries.

Businesses wary of hiring amid continued political uncertainty says survey

first_imgThe high cost of electricity and fluctuating exchange rate ranked among the greatest concerns for Costa Rican businesses during the fourth quarter of 2013, according to the Union of Private-Sector Chambers and Associations’ (UCCAEP) latest Business Pulse survey released Wednesday.A majority of the 502 businesses surveyed said they do not plan to hire new employees in the first quarter of 2014.UCCAEP’s president, Jaime Molina, used the survey’s findings as an opportunity to call for a “clear” policy from presidential candidates on expanding private-sector generation of electricity as a remedy for the country’s high cost of power.“These results are more proof of the urgency to reduce electricity rates in Costa Rica. As a nation we are less attractive to international businesses that would prefer to go elsewhere because of the high cost of production in our country. If the country wants to grow, like the candidates say they want it to grow, Costa Rica is going to need more electricity,” Molina added.Forty-five percent of businesses surveyed said the cost of electricity had a “high” or “very high” affect on their prices. Molina estimated that the cost of electricity in Costa Rica could be more than 20 percent higher than in other Central American countries.Molina said that ruling party candidate Johnny Araya had a “clearer” plan for reducing the cost of electricity than opposition candidate Luis Guillermo Solís. The business chamber leader lauded Araya’s support for increasing the amount of privately generated electricity in Costa Rica.Molina said Solís and his team had yet to convince UCCAEP that they had firm plans for how they would lower the cost of electricity in Costa Rica.Molina noted that political uncertainty leading up to the Feb. 2 presidential election also weakened private business owners’ levels of confidence in the economy. Business confidence looking forward to the coming first quarter of 2014 dropped 4 percent from the same quarter in 2012.The survey’s organizers suggested that the continued political uncertainty has kept businesses from hiring. Of those surveyed, 64 percent said they did not plan to hire new staff and 13 percent said they planned layoffs in the first quarter of 2014.The Central Bank has sold over $60 million since Monday in an attempt to stem the recent devaluation of the Costa Rican currency.Molina did not comment on the current exchange rate, ₡546.22 to the dollar, according to the Central Bank’s MONEX index Wednesday, but added that sudden drastic changes in the exchange rate were not good for the economy. “When we see changes like this, uncertainty grows, and that doesn’t help us,” he said.UCCAEP surveyed 502 business owners and managers between Jan. 14 and 28. The survey has a 95 percent level of confidence and a 5.6 percent margin of error.

Editing by Andrew Heavens) This story has not been edited by Firstpost staff and is generated by auto-feed A new technique is set to strengthen 3D printed stainless steel parts such as this previously printed rocket engine component Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory 3D printing doubles the strength of stainless steel By Robert F ServiceOct 30 2017 12:00 PM 3D printing has taken the world by storm but it currently works best with plastic and porous steel—materials too weak for hard-core applications Now researchers have come up with a way to 3D print tough and flexible stainless steel an advance that could lead to faster and cheaper ways to make everything from rocket engines to parts for nuclear reactors and oil rigs Stainless steel was first invented nearly 150 years ago and it remains widely popular today It’s made by melting conventional steel—itself a combination of iron and carbon (and sometimes other metals like nickel)—and adding in chromium and molybdenum which prevent rust and corrosion A complex series of cooling reheating and rolling steps gives the material a microscopic structure with tightly packed alloy grains and thin boundaries between the grains that create a cell-like structure When the metal is bent or stressed planes of atoms in the grains slide past one another sometimes causing crystalline defects to connect with each other—producing fractures But strong boundaries can halt these defects making the material tough yet still flexible enough to be formed into a desired shape 3D printing researchers have long tried to reproduce this structure Their setup starts with a powdery layer of metal alloy particles laid on a flat surface A computer-controlled high-powered laser beam then advances back and forth across the surface Particles hit by the laser melt and fuse together The surface then drops down a step another layer of powder is added and the laser heating process repeats binding the newly melted material to the layer below By repeating this tier-by-tier addition engineers can build complex shapes such as rocket engines The problem has been that on a microscopic level printed stainless steels are usually highly porous making them weak and prone to fracture “The performance has been awful” says Yinmin “Morris” Wang a materials scientist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California Several years ago Wang and his colleagues came up with an approach for using lasers and a rapid cooling process to fuse metal alloy particles together in a dense tightly packed structure Now they’ve extended that work by designing a computer-controlled process to not only create dense stainless steel layers but to more tightly control the structure of their material from the nanoscale to micron scale That allows the printer to build in tiny cell wall–like structures on each scale that prevent fractures and other common problems Tests showed that under certain conditions the final 3D printed stainless steels were up to three times stronger than steels made by conventional techniques and yet still ductile the scientists report today in Nature Materials “What they have done is really exciting” says Rahul Panat a mechanical engineer at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania What’s more Panat says is that Wang and his colleagues used a commercially available 3D printer and laser to do the work That makes it likely that other groups will be able to quickly follow their lead to make a wide array of high-strength stainless steel parts for everything from fuel tanks in airplanes to pressure tubes in nuclear power plants And that in turn will likely only increase the growing fervor over 3D printing Kolkata:The West Bengal Crime Investigation Department is assisting in the ongoing probe into the tent collapse during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s rally in Midnapore on Monday a senior official of the state government said on Tuesday Midnapore: Prime Minister Narendra Modi being garlanded during ‘Krishi Kalyan Sabha’ rally in Midnapore on Monday July 16 2018 (PTI Photo/Swapan Mahapatra) (PTI7_16_2018_000099B) In all 90 people were injured in the accident and a case was registered against the organiser and the decorator who erected the makeshift tent for negligence of duty the police said? however, The consumer version. saying unrealistic staged photos like this are just as bad as Photoshopped models in magazines.

set up an authority to "compel" ministries to disclose information on their websites and reduce the burden of RTI applications India’s first chief information commissioner Wajahat Habibullah has said Representational image Courtesy: nhpgovin Hailing the Right to Information Act (RTI) as a "great success story" Habibullah added that there were still challenges in the implementation of the 12-year-old law The absence of updated information on websites by ministries both at the central and state level and the maintenance of autonomy and independence of the Central Information Commission and information commissions in states were some of the challenges the former CIC told PTI Under the RTI Act Habibullah said it is expected that every ministry and department under the Centre or state government should not only develop a website but also ensure that it contains a host of routine information The websites are there and a lot of information is there but that "information is unfortunately out of date" he said Every ministry must be "compelled" to disclose all this information which can be disclosed legally he said The government should set up an authority to supervise ministries in declaring all disclosable information on their own the 72-year-old former bureaucrat said Habibullah who was CIC for nearly five years from 2005 said "Unfortunately the law itself carries no clause for enforcement of section 4 (of the RTI Act) which talks of computerisation of all records There is no authority to actually enforce it the information commission can advise but cannot enforce it" Another challenge for the RTI he asserted was that information commissions were expected to "stand alone" and supposed to be not only autonomous in their functioning but also independent in their decision making "They take no dictates from the government Unfortunately that (independence and autonomy) has not happened" he said adding that the performance of the Central Information Commission on this front had been much better than commissions in the states Asked how the government could influence commissions Habibullah said Prime Minister Narendra Modi had himself mentioned a way out The prime minister has said the government should treat RTI as an instrument by which it can improve itself he noted and suggested that every ministry should have a group or a team that vets the type of information that is sought It will give the government a clear indication of the areas of concern he said "The PM put his finger on it Unfortunately nothing much has happened so far (but) since the PM himself is behind it activists commissioners people working within the establishment should work together in making this a reality" he said Asked whether RTI was being misused by some people and was in certain cases putting a burden on government departments Habibullah said there was some truth in that argument "When I was the CIC I myself would dismiss any complaints of its misuse saying it was being misused because of the lack of information you are putting out If you put out all the information there is no question of misuse" he said "The fact that we (establishment) are not taking the trouble of suo motu disclosing information which is disclosable under the act and unnecessarily applying the Official Secrets Act where it is not really applicable we have made it more difficult for ourselves" he added Exactly a week after he dropped his resignation bomb from Rajya Sabha Navjot Singh Sidhu chose to come out in public to play the victim and the hero as also to narrate his side of the story the reasons for his drastic action and the road ahead He ducked response on the most obvious question that has been playing on everyone’s mind — whether

genre in the true sensesomething which could possibly lend a ‘safe’ feel to the soundtrack With the film having a background of terrorism to itthere is a certain restriction that happens to the commercial viability of the music This is why composers Salim-Sulaiman and lyricist Prasoon Joshi had quite some task in hand when entrusted with the responsibility of creating soundtrack for Kurbaan No wonderone eagerly plays it on It’s a tremendous start to the albumwhat with Salim Merchant coming behind the mike to open ‘Shukran Allah’ in a manner similar to that of Kailash Kher crooning of ‘Subhan Allah’ [Fanaa Within secondsSonu Nigam takes over and you instantly know why he is simply the best that we have today when it comes to crooning melodious romantic tracks His trademark silky voice is at play once again in this beautifully composed number which easily finds a place at the top of romantic numbers composed by Salim-Sulaiman If the ‘mukhda’ is impressive then watch out for the ‘antara’ – it proves once again why Indian melody can never ever be out of vogue Shreya Ghoshal joins the scene three and a half minutes into ‘Shukran Allah’ and makes an instant impact This is one song that would be played for a long-long time and is easily one of the best that we have heard this year It’s the sound of guitar that lends a modern day feel to ‘Dua Hai’ Though the English

songs like ‘Naina’ and ‘Laakad’ had made after they were seen and heard in Omkara Similar darkhaunting yet romantic touch is pretty apparent in ‘Rasiya’ which sees a fusion of Indian and Western classical music Excellently crooned by Shruti Pathak who keeps her voice low for this sensualromantic and poetic track’Naina’ is yet another quality song by the young singer who has earlier rendered one of the best tracks ever by Salim and Sulaiman – ‘Mar Jaava’ [Fashion The composers certainly know how to pitch her voice and in what situation No wonder’Rasiya’ is pretty much a testimony to this fact Soon after this slow moving number comes a highly energetic title song ‘Kurbaan Hua’ which proves once again that Vishal Dadlani is seriously taking his stint behind the mike Singing quite regularly now for the compositions created by him along with ShekharShankar-Ehsaan-Loy and also Salim-SulaimanVishal rocks the showliterallywith ‘Kurbaan Hua’ This is a kind of number which evokes
