Michael Curry was my bishop in N.C. If he and the other prelates can broker a peace in Israel and Palestine he (they) should get the Nobel Peace Prize.

May 5, 2016 at 10:15 pm Seems a positive step. We need to give further serious attention to BDS, and studying the Palestinian Kairos document won’t do us any harm either. Rector Martinsville, VA Presiding Bishop Michael Curry Corinne Cromwell says: Submit a Job Listing Advocacy Peace & Justice, May 9, 2016 at 1:27 pm I see no response above to William Thewalt (May 5) but his comments reflect a powerful political voice in USA politics and mass media. It is a voice that seems to contain no listening component to the more rational and loving voices heard at the Carter Center, which reflect what I saw and heard in a visit to the Holy Land and meetings with both Palestinian and Israeli activists. The work for a two-state solution demands all of the prayer and action we can generate in its behalf – which probably needs to include some open dialogue with the sources that have shaped Mr. Thewalt’s views.

The condition is that the Torah is followed which required justice for all the residents, including strangers and visitors. Furthermore, the descendants of Ismael are also the descendants of Abram. There can be no peace until their is justice and then reconciliation. What we have today in Israel/Palestine is an apartheid state as witnessed to by Nelson Mandela and former President Jimmy Carter.

Robert Edmunds, the Episcopal Church’s Middle East partnership officer, looks on.[Episcopal News Service] Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Curry joined more than 100 church leaders from the Middle East and the United States at the Carter Center last month for an unprecedented summit focused on seeking a lasting two-state solution for peace in the Holy Land and ending Israel’s occupation of Palestinian land.“We honor the land that witnessed to the life and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ affirming his call to justice, peacemaking and to the ministry of justice and reconciliation,” the leaders said in a statement at the conclusion of their April 19-20 summit at the Atlanta-based center founded by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn.Curry described the event as an “unprecedented summit … to look at how we can be a force for good” for Israelis and Palestinians “to find a way forward and to help our governments find a way forward for a just and lasting peace for all of the people of the Holy Land.”Archbishop Suheil Dawani of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem and Curry were among the Palestinian and American leaders representing all the major Christian churches in the Holy Land and the United States at the two-day summit, titled “Pursuing Peace and Strengthening Presence.” Dawani’s speech is here.Curry said he was particularly struck by the words of the Mayor of Bethlehem Vera Baboun, a Palestinian Christian woman, who is trying “often against incredible odds to help Bethlehem truly be the city where Christ not only was born, but where the presence of Christ and the love of God is really known for all.”For more than three decades the Carter Center – motivated by its motto of “waging peace, fighting disease, building hope” – has hosted landmark events committed to human rights and the alleviation of human suffering. The center also has offices in East Jerusalem, Ramallah and Gaza.“We feel this is one of the most important meetings at the Carter Center this year,” said Carter, addressing the conference.The religious leaders affirmed their belief that a two-state solution “in which both Israelis and Palestinians can live in neighborly relations and at peace with each other, must be viable politically, geographically, economically and socially.”Following the Six-Day War in 1967, Israel has largely controlled East Jerusalem, the West Bank, Gaza, and the Golan Heights in what are collectively identified as the Israeli-occupied territories.The leaders said in their statement that any two-state solution must be based on the pre-1967 borders and the cessation of Israeli settlement construction in the occupied territories.“The continuing occupation of Palestinian lands beyond the 1967 borders and measures and laws that continue to constrain and control the Palestinian population, in contravention of the Universal Declaration on Human Rights, must end,” they said. “These actions prevent economic and social development, and constrain the exercise of political rights. We need to focus on bringing a new sense of equality, inclusivity, and mutual respect among all the citizens of the Land regardless of religious affiliation or ethnicity.”Carter, who as U.S. president helped to broker the Camp David Accords in 1978 that formed a peace partnership between Israel and Egypt and returned control of the Sinai Peninsula, told the leaders that he fully agreed with this approach. “But it will not have any effect unless the churches and members here work on them jointly, enthusiastically and aggressively,” he said.The Episcopal Church has long supported a two-state solution in which a secure and universally recognized state of Israel lives alongside a free, viable, and secure state for the Palestinian people, with a shared Jerusalem as the capital of both.The Episcopal Church’s most recent stance on Israeli-Palestinian peacemaking was taken at General Convention in June 2015. Resolution B013 “reaffirms the vocation of the church as an agent of reconciliation and restorative justice,” and recognizes that “meaningful reconciliation can help to engender sustainable, long-lasting peace and that such reconciliation must incorporate both political action and locally driven grassroots efforts.”Resolution C018 expresses solidarity with and support for Christians in Israel and the Israeli-occupied territories; affirms the work of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem in healing, education, and pastoral care; and affirms the work of Christians engaged in relationship building, interfaith dialogue, nonviolence training, and advocacy for the rights of Palestinians. The resolution also urges Episcopalians to demonstrate their solidarity by making pilgrimage to Israel and the Israeli-occupied territories and learning from fellow Christians in the region.In Atlanta, the religious leaders also encouraged Christians to make pilgrimages to the Holy Land to understand more deeply the history and nature of the conflict.In addition to official Episcopal Church policy, several dioceses and networks also are engaged in Holy Land partnerships and advocacy, particularly in supporting the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem and its more than 30 social service institutions throughout Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and the Palestinian Territories. These institutions include schools, hospitals, clinics and centers for people with disabilities.The diocese and the institutions also are supported by the American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, a nonpolitical, nonprofit organization established in 1985.The Palestine Israel Network, part of the Episcopal Peace Fellowship, has campaigned for more vigorous church policy to end the occupation, but the Episcopal Church has not supported its calls for boycotts and divestment against Israeli companies that profit from the occupation. Instead, the Episcopal Church supports a policy of positive investment.Dawani addressed the Atlanta conference on the goal of churches in interfaith dialogue. “As a community we seek to act justly and walk humbly with our God. We seek to promote justice for everyone,” he said. “We are not seeking privileges or protection for our own communities. That is a trap which has brought devastation to various religious communities in our region. Everyone loses when one group is privileged. Even the privileged group loses in the end.”In crafting their policy and adopting their action statement, the leaders said their focus was on “the example and teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ on peacemaking [and] the dignity owed to all created in God’s image and kindling the hope that some day there will be a just and lasting peace in the Holy Land.”Another source of major concern is the number of Christians who have left the Holy Land in search of better opportunities and more secure lives overseas.“Churches and church-related organizations need to work together proactively to protect the existing and future presence of Palestinian Christians in the Holy Land,” the leaders said. “The current absence of a just political solution affects their presence and causes many of these Palestinian ‘living stones’ (Luke 19:40) to seek dignified life in freedom outside the troubled Holy Land. A just and peaceful solution is imperative and will contribute to protecting the presence and active participation and involvement of the Palestinian ‘living stones’ in the Holy Land and into a peaceful future.”The full text and list of signatories is available here.Other Episcopalians who attended the summit and signed the statement include the Rev. Canon Chuck Robertson, canon to the presiding bishop for ministry beyond the Episcopal Church; the Rev. Robert Edmunds, the Episcopal Church’s Middle East partnership officer; and Sharon Jones, the presiding bishop’s executive assistant.— Matthew Davies is an editor/reporter of the Episcopal News Service.

Scott Higginbotham pleads innocence but red card wrecks Reds opener

first_imgFriday Feb 23, 2018 Scott Higginbotham pleads innocence but red card wrecks Reds opener The Queensland Reds had a nightmare start to their Super Rugby campaign as they lost a man after just ten minutes, leading to a heavy 45-19 loss at the hands of the Melbourne Rebels. Scott Higginbotham had a match to forget after he made this tackle early on.After consultation with the TMO, referee Brendon Pickerill summed things up and opted to send the Reds skipper off after his dangerous shoulder charge to the head of ball carrier Matt Phillip.31-year-old Higginbotham argued that Phillip had been falling into the tackle, but the amount of force used and the lack of arms in the challenge meant that Pickerill was left with the choice between a lenient yellow or a sterner red, as per World Rugby directives on contact with the head.“It was a violent incident, and they had a good look at it. You can’t go high,” said Fox Sports commentator Greg Martin at the break. “If he didn’t hit him in the head with a shoulder, he wouldn’t have got a red card.”Shortly after that, the Reds were down to 13 men after second rower Lukhan Tui (see below) picked up and dumped former Reds halfback Will Genia into the turf. That might have looked like a more clear cut red card, but Pickerall opted for a yellow card only on that occasion. With the Reds down on numbers for most of the match, they did well to lead at the break, but then Genia’s side took control and ended up scoring seven tries to three, for a comfortable opening round win.UPDATE: Higginbotham has been suspended for 3 weeks. Tui will face his hearing on Tuesday.The Lukhan Tui incident:credit: sanzaar/rugbypassADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

USDA Farm Service Agency Administrator Juan Garcia made the announcement Wednesday. MILC was extended through September 30th in the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012.

For October 2012 marketings – the payment rate is approximately two-cents per hundredweight. The payment rate for November 2012 marketings is zero. Dairy farmers need to complete a new Average Adjusted Gross Income form for 2013 before the October MILC payment can be issued.

Those who wish to do so must visit their local FSA office during the month of February.Additional information on program requirements, updates and signups will be provided to producers as it becomes available.

Court refuses to free editor held for six months on lèse-majesté charge

first_img Covid-19 emergency laws spell disaster for press freedom News Thai premier, UN rapporteurs asked to prevent journalists being returned to Myanmar ThailandAsia – Pacific November 2, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Court refuses to free editor held for six months on lèse-majesté charge Receive email alerts RSF_en News Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders condemns yesterday’s refusal by a Bangkok court to free Somyos Prueksakasemsuk on bail although he has been held for six months on a lèse-majesté charge in connection with his former position as editor of Voice of Thaksin, a magazine closed in 2010.“The new government continues to violate the principles it proclaimed,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We are sceptical about its intention to carry out the prime minister’s pledge not to abuse the lèse-majesté laws. We call on the judicial system to free Somyos and drop the charges against him.”A member of the United Front for Democracy Against Dictatorship (which is better known as the “Red Shirts”), Somyos arrested on 30 April for refusing to identify the person who wrote two articles for Voice of Thaksin under the pen-name of Jit Polachan that allegedly defamed the king. He was formally charged on 26 July on two lèse-majesté counts for which he could get a combined sentence of up to 30 years in prison. His trial is due to take place at the end of the month but it might be postponed because of the current widespread heavy flooding.________________________________________Lèse-majesté charge used to crackdown on opposition media 11-02-2011Reporters Without Borders is concerned about the fate of Somyos Prueksakasemsuk, editor of the magazine Voice of Thaksin, who was arrested by the Department of Special Investigation (DSI) on 30 April and was placed in pre-trial custody today by a Bangkok criminal court on a charge of lèse-majesté. A request for release on bail was rejected.“This arrest confirms that a crackdown on the opposition media is under way,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Once again it is a lèse-majesté charge that has been used to detain an opposition journalist and activist. This is not an isolated case but one that targets all media that are close to or support the opposition. In less than a month, about 20 opposition figures have been accused of lèse-majesté.” Somyos was arrested at the border in Aranyaprathet, in the eastern province of Sa Kaeo, as he was trying to cross into Cambodia. The Bangkok Post quoted a police officer as saying the court granted a request from the DSI to hold him for ten days so that he could not “tamper with the evidence against him.” August 21, 2020 Find out more to go further Follow the news on Thailand News May 12, 2021 Find out more The editor of the bi-monthly Voice of Thaksin (which was banned in 2010 and which was subsequently replaced by Red Power), Somyos was arrested in May 2010 following the final assault on the “Red Shirt” opposition demonstrators and was held for three weeks. He later gave Reporters Without Borders an interview.During the news conference he gave on 21 May 2010, he called for a halt to “any threatening act against all mass media.” At the end of the news conference he turned himself in to the authorities.Representatives of the Thai Journalists Association (TJA) and the Thai Broadcast Journalists Association (TBJA) announced on 30 April, the day of his arrest, that they were writing to Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva requesting his support for World Press Freedom Day tomorrow.——Police close a dozen community radio stations, carry out arrests27-04-2011Reporters Without Borders condemns the closure of a dozen community radio stations linked to the opposition “Red Shirts” in a major police operation yesterday in Bangkok and the surrounding provinces. An exact list of the radio stations raided by the police is not yet available.“Coming just a few months before general elections, this crackdown is very disturbing,” Reporters Without Borders said. “If opposition media are no longer allowed to operate, coverage of the elections will inevitably be very one-sided. Worse still, this wave of closures could indicate a desire to permanently censor the opposition.”The press freedom organization added: “The Thai government must end this kind of harassment, which targets not just the Red Shirts but also all those who publicly express their views about Thailand’s political system and monarchy. They are just exercising their right to free speech, which is necessary for a democracy to function properly.”Three people are known to have been arrested during yesterday’s raids: Lek Suphan, a programme host on radio FM 105.75 Ruam Jai Thai (United Thais), the disk-jockey of a station that broadcasts on 105.40 MHz in Pathum Thani province and the manager of Radio Red Skills (96.35 MHz). The last two were later freed on bail.The raids were covered by Prachatai, Thai E-News and other news websites, which said they were carried out by police and officials from various government departments. Some sources told Reporters Without Borders the raids were led by the government’s Internal Security Operations Command (ISOC).Palot Chalermsan, an employee of radio Lam Lukka FM 105.40, was quoted by Prachatai as saying: “Between 20 and 30 officials from the Department of Special Investigation, the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission, the Crime Suppression Division and the local police came with a court order, confiscated equipment and took it away to Khu Khot police station.”Palot said the station had resumed broadcasting just a week before the raid, after being off the air for repairs. The police said they carried out the raids on official instructions and claimed that the stations targeted had been broadcasting illegally and had defamed the monarchy.The authorities often use lèse-majesté charges under article 112 of the criminal code for political purposes, especially to silence dissent and criticism of the monarchy. One of the latest targets Somsak Jeamteerasakul, a history professor at Thammasat University’s faculty of arts, was threatened by a government official on 22 April with a lèse-majesté prosecution in connection with a speech he gave last December proposing a reform of the monarchy.In statement released on 24 April, Somsak said he had been followed by unidentified men on motorcycles during the past few days and had received an anonymous phone call in which he was told that security officials were keeping a close watch on him and were ready to arrest him at any moment.Thailand is classified as a “country under surveillance” in the “Enemies of the Internet” report that Reporters Without Borders released on 11 March. A dozen people including bloggers, university academics and dissidents are currently being prosecuted on lèse-majesté charges.

first_imgNewsHigher court costs causing bigger insurance premiums – JudgeBy Staff Reporter – January 12, 2017 836 TAGSfeaturedhigh courtinsuranceJudge Gerald Keyslimerickpremiums Previous articleMan admits child porn charges in LimerickNext articleYour Key to Thrive Q&A Evening Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Government must act to the rising costs of insurnaceLimerick Circuit Court heard that premiums may drop if insurance companies changed adopted different court strategiesPREMIUMS would drop if insurance companies agreed to personal injury cases being heard at lower courts with unlimited jurisdiction on awards, a judge said.That was the view expressed by Judge Gerald Keys after he heard an application by a Limerick woman who suffered a serious soft tissue injury in a “significant” car accident in October 2012.The application before Limerick Circuit Court sought to have the assessment of damages transferred to the High Court.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The Limerick woman, who is now 25, sustained a significant soft tissue cervical spine injury and suffered from psychological issues as a result of the accident. She was a child care worker for children with special needs and was likely to have long-term or permanent symptoms from her injuries.Her legal representative Ciara Daly said that damages would exceed the maximum award allowable by the Circuit Court according to the new book of quantum used to assess personal injury awards.She said that up to €77,900 could be awarded for a severe to permanent injury of this type. Her client already had injections for pain relief, 30 physiotherapy sessions, acupuncture and visits to a chiropractor.The injury was also effecting her in respect of work and that she would be also claiming for a loss of opportunity.  Special damages, covering medical expenses, were already in excess of €5,000.There were also psychological issues and the woman was also prescribed anti depressant medication.Despite objections from counsel for her insurers, Judge Keys ruled that the case should go to the High Court as the award could exceed the threshold.He said that because of the ongoing problems and the likelihood that the injury could be prolonged indefinitely, he had to take the woman’s case “at its best if all her evidence was to be accepted and unchallenged.“However this could all be avoided if insurance companies agreed to unlimited jurisdiction on awards. There are mechanisms in place to allow them recoup their costs should a claimant not reach the expected award.“All of this cuts down on the costs of sending things to the High Court unnecessarily. It’s a simple solution and if they did that then insurance premiums might drop”, he added.

Stop Worker Abuse in Hudson County

first_imgRichard TolsonDirector, International Union of Bricklayersand Allied CraftworkersAdministrative District Council, New JerseyLocals No. 4 & 5 Dear Editor:Throughout our state, wealthy developers are taking advantage of lax labor law enforcement and outdated regulations to increase profit margins by abusing workers, robbing workers and the state of revenue and creating an unequal business environment where illegality is the optimal business model.The practice is so widespread that this type of criminality is now the standard procedure in the development industry. Too many politicians have historically looked the other way, as campaign cash from developers and contractors flows readily, but the Hudson County Board of Freeholders recently stood up to challenge the industry. In August, the freeholders passed a resolution condemning exploitative developers, helping to shine a light on the abuses that are taking place daily.These millionaire developers are utilizing construction contractors who break federal and state laws by misclassifying full-time workers as part-time contractors, committing wage theft by violating overtime requirements, establishing illegal work weeks, paying cash and evading taxes – all with one goal: to increase profits. This widespread worker abuse is occurring while the developers are charging record rents, record warehouse prices and recording obscene profits, and often with the benefit of state or local sponsored tax breaks.The fact that these illegal practices are allowed to continue in plain sight amounts to direct corporate welfare, with working men and women being abused and the taxpayers being cheated. And Hudson County is literally ground zero for the issue.At a time when state government has nearly shut down and further tax increases seem inevitable, it’s important to consider the millions of dollars being stolen from the state due to the vast fraud that is taking place. According to a comprehensive report from Stockton University, approximately 35,000 workers are off-the-books or illegally misclassified as independent contractors, which leads to the state losing $25 million a year in tax revenue.What are we seeking? We are seeking basic fairness and economic justice: a level playing field so businesses operating within the law can compete and for all workers to be treated fairly and afforded the protections already granted to them in existing law.We believe three overall concepts could create greater fairness for the working men and women of Hudson County and more tax revenue for local governments:• More aggressive and comprehensive enforcement – at every level of government – of existing laws;• Stronger, smarter labor laws – New Jersey lags behind neighboring states in establishing modern, effective laws; and• Awareness – the problem is in plain sight, but too many officials in government are willing to ignore it.The Hudson County Board of Freeholders, led by Freeholder William O’Dea, took a brave first step by challenging a powerful industry, and hopefully other politicians will follow, as we have a long way to go to achieve fairness for the people who build the progress in this county and our state.last_img read more

Britvic and Pepsi go large

first_imgBritish soft drinks manufacturer Britvic and PepsiCo UK is to launch what they are calling “the biggest pack innovation that the market has seen in over 15 years”.A new range of 600ml PET bottles will be available from April 2010 across the no- and low-sugar drinks in Britvic’s carbonates range, which include: Pepsi Max, Diet Pepsi, 7Up Free, and Tango. The new bottles will replace the existing 500ml range, but will still have the same RRP.The firm said research into the new 600ml format showed a massive increase in consumer purchase, with consumers stating that they were 84% more likely to purchase the new line of 600ml bottles ahead of existing products. “Pepsi Max, Tango and 7Up already command a higher rate of sale than other similar brands in the market and consumer research shows that the move to the new larger-size format will grow this further,” said Noel Clarke, senior brand manager for Pepsi.The launch will be supported by a £5m marketing campaign, starting on 12 April. Over three million money-off coupons will also be distributed throughout the key summer period to drive consumer trial.The new pack format will be on show at Britvic’s stand at the Baking Industry Exhibition from 21-24 March at Birmingham’s NEC.www.britvic.comlast_img read more

Restructure sees 2,600 jobs go at Morrisons

first_imgSupermarket giant Morrisons is to cut 2,600 jobs as part of a restructuring plan. A 45-day consultation process about plans to take out two tiers of management in its stores will begin as it attempts to cut costs in order to fund lower prices for customers. The move comes following three years of slimmed-down management trials over the past year.Former chairman Sir Ken Morrison had lambasted the chain over poor service in its stores, which he blamed on reduced staff hours. The new structure will bring together the roles of department managers, looking after specific areas with supervisors. Around 1,000 of those staff will be promoted to more senior roles and Morrisons plans to find new positions more locally or at new stores, which is expected to create 4,000 jobs later this year.Reduce costsMorrisons is under pressure to reduce costs to fund £1bn in price cuts and product improvements over the next three years. Last month saw it introduce price cuts on 1,200 items by an average of 17%.Of 126,000 employees, the structural changes will mean around 26,000 will lose their jobs.Last month, its competitor Asda also announced a major restructuring, which put 4,100 jobs into consultation. The Walmart-owned company said it would ditch existing department manager roles and would create section leader posts.It claimed the creation of the new position would create 5,000 new roles – meaning a net increase of 900 jobs.last_img read more

Paul Mead Doty

first_imgDuring the second half of the twentieth century, Paul Doty had a major impact on science and international affairs at Harvard and in the world through his research, mentoring, and institution building. He led the development of molecular biology in this Faculty in the 1960s and 1970s and founded the Center for Science and International Affairs, now the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs in the Kennedy School of Government.Paul Mead Doty, Mallinckrodt Professor of Biochemistry, Emeritus, was born in Charleston, West Virginia, on June 1, 1920. When he was seven the family moved to Chicora, Pennsylvania, a town with about a thousand inhabitants. Given a chemistry set at age nine, he set up a home laboratory and by the time of high school had set his sights on a career in chemistry. Upon graduation, he entered Pennsylvania State College (now University), receiving a B.S. in chemistry in 1941.Accepted for graduate work at Columbia, Harvard, and Princeton, Doty chose Columbia. During freshman year he attended courses offered by Enrico Fermi, Joseph Mayer, I. I. Rabi, Harold Urey, and Edward Teller. By the end of the academic year all of them had left teaching for war work except Mayer, with whom Doty did his dissertation research, publishing three papers on electron affinities and bond energies. While still at Columbia, apparently following a suggestion of Peter Debye, Doty and fellow graduate student Bruno Zimm began theoretical and experimental studies of light scattering by high polymers in solution.At about that time, Doty and Zimm were offered instructorships by Herman Mark at the Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute, where Mark was assembling an outstanding Department of Polymer Science. Doty’s research there was on the use of light scattering for the determination of the size and shape of synthetic polymers and of tobacco mosaic virus. After two years at Brooklyn Polytechnic, Doty was awarded a Rockefeller Fellowship to spend a year in Cambridge, England, where he was particularly influenced by Max Perutz, one of the founders of molecular biology. After a year at the University of Notre Dame, Doty was appointed Assistant Professor of Chemistry at Harvard in 1948 and full professor in 1956.Doty’s laboratory became a leading world center for the application of light scattering and other physical chemical methods to the study of the size, conformation, and helix-coil transformations of proteins and nucleic acids, attracting many outstanding graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Doty’s seminal contribution to science was the demonstration in late 1950 that the separated strands of bacterial DNA in solution can be reunited by slow cooling, regaining specific biological activity and the double-helical structure of native DNA. This was a discovery of great importance, making possible many procedures at the center of nucleic acid research, including primer-initiated DNA sequencing and the polymerase chain reaction for DNA amplification. Subsequent work in the Doty laboratory elucidated the structure of single-stranded RNA molecules in solution, determined the direction in which messenger RNA is translated, and demonstrated that protein synthesis in bacteria is initiated with formylmethionine, coded by the methionine codon AUG on the messenger RNA.In the 1970s and 1980s work in the Doty laboratory returned to an earlier interest in collagen, which had been the subject of Helga Boedtker’s doctoral dissertation. She had worked in Doty’s laboratory and they had subsequently been married. The experiments, largely carried out by Boedtker, led to the isolation of the collagen messenger RNA in 1974 and the characterization of the collagen gene in 1981. Doty retired from the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in 1988.In the 1950s and 1960s, Doty played a leading role in establishing molecular biology as a field of teaching and research distinct from traditional biology and chemistry at Harvard. As the previously formed Committee on Higher Degrees in Biochemistry, a graduate program leading to the Ph.D. degree in biochemistry, could not determine curricula or initiate appointments, he proposed the creation of a new department, presenting the case to a meeting of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, which by unanimous vote approved the creation of the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology on April 11, 1967, with Doty as the first chairman.In 1957 Doty was elected chairman of the Federation of American Scientists and in that capacity participated in a meeting of American, British, and Soviet scientists in Pugwash, Nova Scotia. Invited to visit Moscow the following year, he began what became a lifelong friendship with several of the most senior Soviet scientists. As one of the few American scientists who had come to know such individuals, Doty was invited to join a committee under MIT President James Killian to advise President Eisenhower on matters of arms control. This began what became a long series of high-level science advisory positions, mainly in the area of nuclear arms control. These included membership in President Kennedy’s Science Advisory Committee and leadership of an informal but influential advisory group to President Nixon’s National Security Advisor, Henry Kissinger, a close friend of Doty from Kissinger’s days at Harvard.Doty’s premise in these matters was that nuclear weapons are not for war-fighting or preemption but solely for deterring nuclear attack, a view that was by no means accepted by officials on both sides during the early days of the Cold War. With support from the Ford Foundation, Doty founded Harvard’s Center for Science and International Affairs, later renamed the Belfer Center, and its journal, International Security. Many of its alumnae went on to become influential academics or senior government officials. Doty’s style as director there, as in the laboratory, was one of questioning, encouraging, and caring more about finding answers than about promoting his own prestige. His large physical presence and jovial disposition belied his commitment and perseverance to achievement in science and human affairs.Paul Doty died at home on December 5, 2011; he left a son, Gordon, from his first marriage and three daughters, Marcia, Rebecca, and Katherine, from his marriage with Helga Boedtker, who died in 2001.Respectfully submitted,Matthew MeselsonHenry RosovskyGuido Guidotti, Chairlast_img read more

Virtual Reality Next Game-Changer for Medicine

first_imgEdgar Sosa was born with a condition called Craniosynostosis where one or more of the sutures in a child’s skull fuses or closes too early. Untreated, it could have hurt his brain development.Then, in the first weeks of his own child’s life, Sosa learned he had passed the genetic condition on to her. But one thing was very different this time – while the same surgeon who treated the father would be treating the child, the way he prepared was totally different.“The stakes are very high when you’re doing surgery. We used to train on cadavers and some plastic models and those are good for only one time,” Neurological Surgeon Ben Roitberg, M.D. explains in the video below.But thanks to what Dell customer Jay Banerjee, president of ImmersiveTouch, Inc. calls a “symbiotic relationship” surgeons can now use their software optimized on Dell Precision workstations to prepare in a realistic virtual reality operation room with an anatomically accurate 3D model of the patient.“It allows you to restart the whole thing from the beginning indefinitely until you get better,” Roitberg said.Founded in 2005 by a group of engineers and surgeons, ImmersiveTouch is building the next generation of medical virtual reality (VR) software. Combining 2D and 3D visual data, they provide a unique experience that helps surgeons in planning complex surgical cases.The advances are beneficial not only for the doctors and their patients but also for the patients’ families.“We live in a three-dimensional world. Once you get it down to two-dimensional x-rays, I think it was very, very, difficult to explain to parents some of the conditions we were treating because you would lose all that imagery,” said Craniofacial Pediatric Surgeon Pravin Patel, M.D. “So what we needed was a virtual reality solution that was powerful enough for surgeons.”More than twenty years after he operated on Sosa, Patel found himself in the position of using this new technology to reassure him in the more stressful role of father of the patient.“Seeing the scans definitely put us at ease. It was very comforting,” said Sosa.You can see more of their story here:last_img read more

Several patients contracted COVID-19 despite ‘never leaving home’: Task force

first_img“They then became carriers [of the SARS-CoV-2 virus] that eventually infected the other family members,” Doni said during a webinar on Saturday, as quoted by kompas.com.Read also: Asymptomatic coronavirus carriers have high viral loads: StudyThe retired army general urged people to strictly adhere to health protocols, such as by wearing face masks and keeping a safe distance from others, to prevent contracting COVID-19.On Friday, at least 1,929 COVID-19 patients were receiving treatment at the Wisma Atlet hospital, according to data from the task force. Around 1,000 others were in self-isolation at Tower 5 of the complex, which served as the athletes village for the Asian Games.Coordinating Maritime Affairs and Investment Minister Luhut Pandjaitan said he had ordered joint forces of military and police personnel to monitor the enforcement of health protocol across the country.Luhut had been tasked by President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo with suppressing COVID-19 transmission nationwide amid the recent increase in the number of confirmed cases. (vny)Topics : Health authorities suspect that several patients currently in treatment at the Wisma Atlet COVID-19 hospital in Jakarta contracted the coronavirus from family members, because they had mostly remained at home since the outbreak began.National COVID-19 Task Force head Doni Monardo said around 7 percent of patients told medical personnel that they had rarely or never left home prior to their treatment at the provisional hospital.He added that medical workers suspected they had caught the virus from family members going about activities outside of their home without properly protecting themselves.last_img read more

UK roundup: PLSA launches diversity campaign

first_imgThe Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA) has kicked off a year of diversity campaigns with the launch of ”Breaking The Mirror Image”, a collection of essays on the subject.The pension fund trade body wants to encourage greater diversity on trustee boards, having found that 83% of trustees are male.Speaking at an event this morning in London, PLSA chair Lesley Williams said the association will initially focus on gender, but that she intends to extend the association’s work into other forms of diversity. The work will continue beyond the initial 12-month period, Williams added. It will include a series of training sessions and other activities, as Williams told IPE last month.Contributors to the 44-page book include NEST CEO Helen Dean, Investment Association chair Helena Morrissey, Railpen CEO Chris Hitchen, and Pensions Regulator chief executive Lesley Titcomb. Richard Harrington, the UK government’s pensions minister, welcomed the initiative, adding: “A balanced workforce is good for businesses, their workplace culture and for investors. Firms with a good gender balance in senior positions and across teams perform better, and therefore attract the best talent.”Williams said: “Our campaign begins by looking at gender diversity, but there are many elements to consider if we want truly representative and diverse trustee boards – gender, race, age, disability, sexual orientation, and social class.”Titcomb added: “Good governance is the foundation of a well-run pension scheme, and diverse trustee boards can help deliver this.”Elsewhere, workers for the Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) have struck a deal on a new defined contribution pension scheme after lengthy discussions with their employer.Prospect, a union, said it had negotiated higher employer contributions to the scheme of between 11% and 13%, depending on the employee’s contribution.Workers took strike action in November in protest at the closure of their defined benefit pension fund.Prospect negotiator Richard Tabbner said employees had secured “significant improvements” to the pension arrangements, but added that it was “extremely disappointing that industrial action was needed”.“The result should not be interpreted as members being satisfied with the outcome,” Tabbner added. “The closure of the defined benefit scheme broke clear promises that had been made to AWE employees in the past and members are rightly angry about that. The result simply shows that members felt the final proposals were the best that could be achieved at this stage.”        Meawhile, the Cancer Research UK Pension Scheme has sealed a £250m (€292m) buy-in with Canada Life.The transaction was a continuation of the defined benefit scheme’s de-risking programme, according to a statement on the deal from advisers LCP. In the past three years the scheme has reduced its equity exposure and invested in assets that “broadly in line with the measurement of the pension obligations”.Kenneth Hardman, partner in LCP’s insurance de-risking team, said Canada Life’s backing of the buy-in had established the insurer in the “mid-range” market for de-risking, providing competition and further capacity.Ian Kenyon, chief financial officer at Cancer Research UK, said said the deal “both improves the funding position of the pension scheme and reduces the risk of contributions needing to increase in the future”.“This is another action which serves to reduce the charity’s cost base to concentrate spending on research,” he added.The combined shortfall across all private sector defined benefit funds rose slightly during February to £270bn, according to an estimate from JLT Employee Benefits. The average funding level remained at 85%, however, as assets also rose.PricewaterhouseCoopers also released its monthly DB funding estimate. Its Skyval index estimated that UK pension schemes had a combined deficit of £370bn at the end of February, up by £50bn in a month.last_img read more

New AID Bank Chairman outlines plans for the bank

first_img Share 40 Views   2 comments Share Share Tweetcenter_img Sharing is caring! LocalNews New AID Bank Chairman outlines plans for the bank by: – May 15, 2012 Martin Charles. Photo credit: GIS NewsThe Dominica Agricultural Industrial and Development Bank (DAIDB) is seeking to stick to a five year strategic plan which was recently outlined by the bank, according to newly appointed Chairman of the Aid bank Martin Charles. Mr. Charles who served as Deputy Director of the bank since March 2010 on April 19 took up his new position succeeding Ambrose Sylvester who served as Chairman of the AID Bank board of Directors from 2006 to April 18, 2012.The new Chairman of the AID Bank in an interview with the Government Information Service said his first order of business for the bank will be to meet with members of the board of directors to review where the bank is and to determine a way forward.“First of all the bank has a five year strategic plan which was approved by Cabinet. We have set a path for the bank for the next five years. We have had our shortcomings in that we have not reached all the targets that we intended to arrive at but the board of directors are going to meet so that we can review where we at and try to tighten up on certain areas to see how best we can achieve the mission and vision of the bank.”The bank official said the success of the bank is not dependant on who the chairman is but rather is a collective effort of the board of Directors and the management and staff of the bank, supported by the major shareholder which is the Government of Dominica.Charles disclosed that during his tenure the bank will undertake new initiatives which will continue to position the bank as a model development bank in the Caribbean.“We have started to that end already. For a matter of fact we have some institutions for example the Bank of St.Lucia, they are really looking at the AID Bank as a model.” Charles said the AID bank has been able to be a shining example to other banks in a number of areas.“Some of the things that we have been able to do over the past years have caused our asset base to grow to such a significant amount that these other banks realize that something is happening at AID bank worth emulating”.In moving forward Charles expressed concern that the bank is still having difficulty in accessing cheap financing.“We have partnered with the European Investment Bank (EIB), the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) and recently Banco de Desarrollo Económico y Social de Venezuela (BANDES) and we are looking to see how we could have our relationship extended”. Charles said the relationship with Dominica’s indigenous bank is solid. “We have already established a relationship with the National Bank of Dominica where the bank is engaged in joint financing. We would like to broaden that scope of that agreement whereby we can undertake some bigger projects”.The new chairman is looking forward to the bank being able to impact more on Dominica’s economic development.“We want to ensure that the productive sector is looked at more thoroughly because the bank has a mandate whereby we are supposed to help influence the economic development of the country”.Charles is suggesting that much more can be done. “I believe we can do much more than we are doing in terms of getting into the various communities, assisting the small businesses be it cooperatives. I know the National Development Foundation of Dominica (NDFD) is doing some of it, but on a bigger scale we believe that there is a role in each community for AID bank to impact on the lives of the people of Dominica”.The bank according to its new Chairman is currently in the process of holding discussions with the export import bank of China regarding a new line of credit.“Because of the bilateral relations between Dominica and China, we will be pursuing some line of credit from EXIM bank of China where loans can be made available to institutions through the Government. With that we are looking to see how we can bring some macro and micro projects to the country”.The Board of Directors comprises individuals who are selected by the Shareholders of the bank.The other members of the AID bank board of Directors re- appointed to serve another term are: Elford Henry, Hubert Joseph, Leon Leblanc, Rueben Thomas, Colbert Pinard and Denise Charles.By: Tarnia GreenGovernment Information Servicelast_img read more

Pearson fumes at journalist

first_img The Foxes chief took exception to being asked what criticism of his players had upset him over the season. He was facing the press after Leicester’s defeat to Chelsea, which left them a point above the Barclays Premier League relegation zone. It was not the first time Pearson had been involved in a spat with a journalist this season, calling one a p***k after Leicester’s 0-0 draw with Hull in March. Pearson hinted he felt his players had been given unfair criticism this season, despite only climbing out of the relegation zone for the first time since November at the weekend. He was asked what in particular had upset the manager only to be met with angry responses. Pearson said: “Have you been on holiday for six months? Have you been away for six months? “I think you must have been either ‘head in the clouds’ or away on holiday or reporting on a different team because if you don’t know the answer to that question your question is absolutely unbelievable, the fact you do not understand where I am coming from. “If you don’t know the answer to that question then I think you are an ostrich. Your head must be in the sand. Is your head in the sand? Are you flexible enough to get your head in the sand? My suspicion would be no.” Pearson continued to talk at the writer despite a member of Leicester’s media team trying to wrap up the press conference. He added: “Listen, you have been here often enough and for you to ask that question, you are either being very, very silly or you are being absolutely stupid, one of the two because for you to ask that question. I am sorry son, you are daft. “You are wrong. No, you are wrong. You have been in here, I know you have so don’t give that crap with me, please don’t give that crap with me. I will smile at you because I can afford to smile at you. Now do you want to ask a different question or do you want to ask it differently. Come on, ask it. Ask it or are you not capable?” Boss Nigel Pearson launched into a bizarre rant against a journalist – calling him an ostrich – after Leicester’s 3-1 defeat to Chelsea.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Cricket News Will Pucovski, Australia batting prodigy leaves Test squad to cope with mental health issues

first_imghighlights Will Pucovski smashed 243 against Western Australia in the Sheffield Shield.Pucovski was included in the squad for the two Tests against Sri Lanka.Pucovski has suffered seven concussions in the domestic circuit. Cricket Australia chief executive Kevin Roberts said the decision to bring Puckovski into the squad was approved despite suffering similar problems in the past.  “It is really important to note the support Will has had around him through the team doctor, psychologist in the team, and also the national network of support we’ve got with player development managers in every state. It wasn’t Will’s wellbeing or his challenges with that that saw him not play in the Gabba Test, it was because we had a bloke called Kurtis Patterson who played supremely well and scored twin unbeaten hundreds. I’m comfortable with how that played out but at the same time I acknowledge not everyone will agree with me,” Roberts told ABC News.Pucovski’s battle with mental health issues is well documented. He had suffered seven concussions during his playing career. He missed six weeks of action in the ongoing Sheffield Shield season in order to work on a mental illness that he was suffering from some time. Yet, he scored plenty of runs in the 2018/19 in the domestic season with his 243 against Western Australia comes at a time when Australia is looking for batsmen to contribute in a side that is struggling to cope with the absence of David Warner and Steve Smith.When being picked up the selection committee, chairman of selectors Trevor Hohns said Puckovski’s ability to make centuries was the defining factor. “Pucovski is an exciting young player who is making his mark in the Sheffield Shield. He is another player with a track record of making centuries. We look forward to him joining the squad and congratulate him on his first national call-up,” Hohns had told Cricket Australia’s official website. For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Will Pucovski, who made waves in the Australian domestic summer with a brilliant 243 against Western Australia which earned him selection for the two Tests against Sri Lanka, has left the Australian cricket team squad and has returned home to Melbourne in order to cope with mental health issues. Pucovski was not included in the Pink Ball Test in Brisbane while he was also not selected in the second Test at the Manuka Oval in Canberra. In both the Tests, Kurtis Patterson, who smashed two centuries in the warm-up game in Hobart impressed and scored his maiden ton at the Manuka Oval.Speaking about the decision of the 20-year-old to return back to Melbourne, Cricket Australia doctor Richard Saw said the batsman had reported some challenges in coping with his condition in the last couple of weeks. “The decision has been made that the best thing for Will’s welfare is for him to return home to Melbourne. Will has been proactive in this process and while he has made significant progress, he feels this is the best course of action to get ready to play cricket for Victoria. Will’s decision to speak up and continue to ask for assistance in managing his ongoing mental health is extremely positive. We’re handling the situation with care. Will has been really mature about it,” Saw said in a statement. last_img read more

Starter needs to emerge as leader

first_imgThe question swirled around the Wisconsin football team for what seemed like forever: Who would succeed John Stocco as the starting quarterback for the Badgers in 2007?The two main contenders, fifth-year senior in-state product Tyler Donovan and junior transfer from Kansas State Allan Evridge, battled back and forth for all of spring practice and the first three weeks of fall camp, neither taking control of the position because of their sporadic play.After nearly six months of competition, Donovan was announced as the starter late last week. It was a move the UW coaching staff was compelled to make. At the same time, it was a move that may eventually come back to haunt the staff. Either way, it was a decision that will go a long way in determining how history looks back on the 2007 version of the Badgers.Before we get too far, let me preface what I am about to put forth. Neither is Donovan a terrible quarterback nor did the coaching staff make a completely misguided decision. The fact is Donovan entered the competition in the lead, already having four years under his belt at UW and more experience in the offense. And although neither was stunning for extended stretches of camp, Evridge never separated himself enough to jump past Donovan and force the coaching staff to name him starter, something a challenger must do. Likewise, Donovan never was bad enough to warrant losing his lead. The right-handed Donovan and the left-handed Evridge were, for the most part, mirror images.There is no denying the UW football team is exceptionally talented. With a defense that should rival, if not better, last year’s top-five national unit, solid special teams, a good ground game and weapons in the passing game, the Badgers should be a bowl team regardless of who the starting quarterback is. What will make the difference between a 9-3 record and another berth in the Capital One Bowl, and a gaudier record and BCS appearance is quarterback play. More specifically, how the signal caller reacts to tough environments like the Horseshoe and Happy Valley and pressure situations in other high-profile contests will chart the Badgers’ course.That is where the Donovan decision could come back to haunt Wisconsin.Sure, Donovan has been around the block with the UW program and has more time logged in the offense than Evridge. He also has a career 2-0 record as a starter, winning twice at the end of last season when Stocco was out with a shoulder injury. And while he won both games and looked good doing so, neither win came against good teams.Wisconsin and Donovan caught Iowa right as the Hawkeyes season was falling apart. After beating up on low-tier major conference teams in their first four games, the Hawkeyes went on to lose seven of their last nine to finish with a 2-6 record in the Big Ten. Quite simply, Iowa was not a good team last year.The next week, Wisconsin dismantled Buffalo. No explanation besides a 2-10 record is needed for why Buffalo does not constitute a good team.That’s it. That’s the starting experience in the system Donovan has over Evridge: two wins over teams no one would mistake for championship contenders.And it’s not as if Evridge has no starting experience. In 2005, Evridge impressed head coach Bill Snyder so much that Snyder made Evridge the first true freshman quarterback to start a game for him in his 17-year stay at Kansas State, including games in tough environments like Nebraska and Texas Tech. Although Evridge’s record was anything but spectacular, so was the talent around him.The real litmus test for Donovan will likely not come until the second month of the season, when Wisconsin travels to play a talented Penn State team in what is always a crazy environment. Three weeks later, the scene will be Columbus, Ohio, in front of the more than 100,000 that make Ohio Stadium the most feared locale in the Big Ten.In those situations, leadership will be as important as any other factor the quarterback brings to the table.In that category, Evridge has the edge on Donovan. One senior starter expressed some doubt about Donovan’s leadership capabilities, telling me he isn’t “captain material.” Evridge, that same player said, is captain material. If Evridge has made this big of an impact on the minds of his teammates in the brief time he has been around the program, there must be something there.Although Donovan may not be the natural leader Evridge is, he can still become a leader in the eyes of his peers. Coming through with some big plays to right the ship early in the season when the team may be struggling against a lesser opponent would be one way to do so.Earlier during fall camp, well before the quarterback situation was close to being decided, Evridge offered an interesting thought on the topic of leadership. “You can try to fake leadership,” Evridge said. “But eventually you’ll get caught.”He wasn’t talking about his counterpart, but whether Donovan gets caught or not — whether he is faking leadership, or is able to command and lead his offense — will go a long way to determining whether this is a special season in Madison or just another good one.Ben is a junior majoring in political science and journalism.

David Okereke: New Toast of European Clubs

first_imgCrystal Palace have identified a new striker target in Okerere but he might however not be the proven Premier League goalscorer that the fans were hoping for as The Eagles hover above the relegation zone.Palace, all the same, are interested in the 21-year-old forward who has lit up Serie B this season with Spezia.Okereke has scored six goals for a team appropriately nicknamed The Little Eagles while producing another eight assists. That is a fine tally for a player who continues to go from strength to strength in the Italian lower leagues.Palace were said to have sent scouts to watch Okereke in action during Spezia’s thrilling 4-4 draw away at Brescia on Sunday and Nigerian forward did not disappoint as he scored one and set up another at the Mario Rigamonti Stadium.It is not certain how much Crystal Palace would be willing to pay for Okereke but they are likely to face competition from Belgian outfit Standard Liege, who were also present at Brescia last weekend.Serie A side Inter Milan are already looking at the prospect of Okereke coming to San Siro in the summer.Linked with a move to Standard Liege of Belgium last summer, he decided to extend his contract with Spezia till 2022 upon his return from a productive loan spell from Serie C side Cosenza, where he spent last season on loan.Inter Milan are tracking the 21-year-old in view of signing him in January with the option of leaving him at Spezia on loan till the end of the current season before a decision will be made on his involvement with them in pre-season next summer.No bid has been tabled yet but it’s believed that Inter are confident of their strong relationship with Spezia and a deal could be done if all goes according to plan.According to Italian outlet Il Secolo XIX, as cited on Inside Futbol, Turin giants, Juventus are also keeping a close eye on Okereke’s development. The report claims a number of top-flight Italian teams have also registered an interest, with the Nigerian continuing to impress in the second tier.The 21-year-old signed a two-year contract extension with Spezia last season before he was farmed out on loan to Società Cosenza Calcio.Born in Lagos, Okereke began his career in Italy with Lavagnese before his shift to Spezia in 2016, he rose through the ranks before making his professional debut against Novara on April 9, 2016.He has played 36 games in total for Spezia across all levels, scoring eight goals while providing one assist.Okereke is a product of Football College Abuja, the academy that produced AS Roma young duo Sadiq Umar and Nura Abdullahi.Nicknamed “Sadiq Umar II” by fans of Spezia due to the fact that he passed through same route before arriving at the team like former forward Sadiq Umar, who is now at Bologna after a short stint at Roma.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram From Italian giants- Juventus and Inter Milan to Premier League strugglers- Crystal Palace and middle tableside, Wolverhampton  Wanderers, one name of interest to them all is the product of the Football College, Abuja- David Okereke After scoring his sixth Serie B goal of the season last weekend, Premier League strugglers, Crystal Palace who had had goalscoring challenge from the beginning of the season is turning their direction to Spezia striker, David Okereke.Palace have been looking to add goals to their squad, with Roy Hodgson’s men among the lowest scorers in the Premier League.last_img read more

As Bryce Harper continues free-agent dance, Phillies focus on guys in clubhouse

first_imgMORE: Yasiel Puig isn’t only intriguing Reds outfielder in 2019They’d love for Bryce Harper to choose Philly. The Phillies and Harper have always made way too much sense, maybe more so than any other team in baseball. The franchise is on the upswing, with oodles of money to spent after years of low payrolls and a rich TV contract. Harper is a star with an MVP already under his belt and oodles of prime years left in his 26-year-old body. It’s clear the Phillies want Harper. The other way around, though? That’s a bit murky.Harper and his agent, Scott Boras, have made no secret of their desire to land a long-term mega deal. And the Phillies have reportedly offered something in the 10-year, $325 million range. That’s both long and mega. So why is Harper still on the market? Maybe he wants to be closer to his Las Vegas roots. Maybe all those years with the rival Nationals gave him a distaste for Philly and he wants a premium to play there. Maybe he wants a bigger number. Maybe he just didn’t want to deal with spring training in February. All we really know for sure is that March is almost here, and Harper doesn’t have a spot in the Philly clubhouse. Yet.I asked Pat Neshek, the veteran reliever who’s been with the Phillies since the start of the 2017 season — minus a couple of months with the Rockies in 2017 — whether the Harper drama has made much of an impact inside the clubhouse. “Not really, no. Not really,” he said. “I think it’s something the fans really get into. Yeah. If we get him, if we don’t, I think the fans, you’ll hear from them.”Philly fans certainly have a way of making their feelings known, no doubt. And they’re not exactly thrilled at the moment. MORE: Opening Day schedule for all 30 MLB teamsThey were promised, basically, by their owner early this offseason that something big would happen. At the end of October, at least one Las Vegas book put the Phillies as the favorites to land BOTH Harper and Manny Machado. So, yeah, the fans got a bit excited. But as you know, Machado signed a $300 million deal with San Diego, and Harper’s still on the loose. It’s not like the Phillies have been stagnant. They gave Andrew McCutchen a three-year, $50 million deal to play left field. They traded for All-Star catcher J.T. Realmuto and they traded for All-Star second baseman Jean Segura. Oh, and they signed ace Aaron Nola to a four-year deal that buys out at least one free-agent year, two with a club option. CLEARWATER, Fla. — If you’re curious, nine lockers are currently open in the Phillies’ spring training clubhouse at Spectrum Field, almost all of them in the traditional spots next to a veteran’s locker. Become a star in the bigs and you earn a bit of extra space.As spring training progresses and cuts are made, more and more spots will become available. If Phillies fans had their way, though, that number would decrease by one very soon. Those are outstanding moves for a team that played very well for four-and-a-half months last year before sputtering to the finish line. That optimism is what Neshek said the guys in the occupied lockers are thinking about. “I think we’re just kind of building on that. We’ve added four guys, some really good players, which I think is going to help,” he said. “And there’s more guys out there, so we might add somebody — who knows? But I really like what we have in here. To me, it’s going to be how the starters step up and how they pitch this year. The East is going to be tough, though.”last_img read more

Micheal Ferland injury update: Canucks winger leaves bubble with undisclosed injury

first_img“Coming back against Toronto, I thought I was good and had a little bit of symptoms, and thought I was good to play,” he told reporters on Feb. 10, four days prior to that Utica Comets game. “I don’t think it was a step back, just a little bit of lingering stuff that was still there. We were cautious with it and just decided to take more time.”Ferland dealt with headaches, dizziness and sensitivity to light during his recovery.If the Canucks can advance past the Wild and Ferland is able to return, he would have complete a quarantine before rejoining the team. Vancouver is currently tied with Minnesota at 1-1 in their best-of-5 series. It looks like, for now, Micheal Ferland’s return to the NHL is on indefinite hold.Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman reported on Wednesday night the Vancouver Canucks forward “will be leaving the bubble due to injury.” Hearing Micheal Ferland (VAN) will be leaving the bubble due to injury. The forward played just four shifts and 2:36 in Game 2 vs. MIN. No clarification on specifics.— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) August 5, 2020While not confirmed, Ferland has long struggled with the effects from a concussion and post-concussion syndrome and TSN’s Darren Dreger did tweet that, “Sources say he’s dealing with similar issues.” TSN 1040’s Rick Dhaliwal is reporting that Ferland is returning to his home in Manitoba and not Vancouver.Sounds like he is headed home to Manitoba instead of Vancouver. https://t.co/OYBpMruPue— Rick Dhaliwal (@DhaliwalSports) August 5, 2020Known for a gritty, physical style of play, the winger made his return to the lineup in the Canucks’ qualifying round Game 1 loss to the Minnesota Wild. Less than two minutes in, he dropped the gloves with Marcus Foligno and finished the game with 11:41 of ice time and five hits dished out. He was also involved in an incident by the Wild’s bench that resulted in him being fined $5,000 for spearing Ryan Hartman after the Minnesota player grabbed his stick from behind the boards.In Game 2, though, Ferland played just four shifts in the first period, totaling two minutes and 36 seconds of ice time. He was missing from the bench from the start of the second period, and the broadcast speculated he might have been injured after blocking a shot. Nothing has been confirmed from the team. The Canucks did announce he is “unfit-to-play” and “will be re-evaluated following the series” on Wednesday.#Canucks confirm that Micheal Ferland is ‘unfit-to-play’ for the remainder of the play-in series vs Minnesota. He has returned home and will be re-evaluated following the series.— Vancouver #Canucks (@Canucks) August 6, 2020Reached for comment, GM Jim Benning told Postmedia’s Ben Kuzma, “They (the NHLPA) did the verbiage and he (Ferland) has left the bubble, but I can’t comment. I’m always willing to share what I know, but as part of the agreement with this tournament, I can’t comment on injuries. And I think this goes through the postseason.” After signing a four-year, $14 million deal over the summer, the 28-year-old played just 14 games for the Canucks during the 2019-20 regular season and netted one goal and five points. He suffered a concussion in a fight with then-Kings forward Kyle Clifford on Oct. 30 and missed the team’s next 17 games; it was not the first concussion of his career.He returned against Buffalo on Dec. 7 but had to leave the next game against the Maple Leafs due to a return of his symptoms. Ferland tried to come back in February to play for the Canucks’ AHL team in Utica but could not complete his first game.last_img read more

District court judge overturns Iowa’s ‘fetal heartbeat’ law

first_imgDES MOINES — A district court judge has ruled Iowa’s so-called “fetal heartbeat” law is unconstitutional.Last May, Governor Kim Reynolds signed the law to ban abortions after a fetal heartbeat may be detected, which happens in about the sixth week of a pregnancy. Planned Parenthood of the Heartland and the American Civil Liberties Union of Iowa immediately challenged the law in court.Governor Reynolds issued a written statement late Tuesday afternoon, saying a “beating heart indicates life” and she’s “incredibly disappointed” by the ruling. Senator Janet Petersen, a Democrat from Des Moines who’s a leading critic of the proposal, also issued a statement. Petersen called the law “extreme” and says it “forced motherhood” on Iowa women and girls.Last summer the Iowa Supreme Court ruled a 72-hour waiting period for abortions was unconstitutional. There’s no word yet on whether the state’s highest court will be asked to rule on the constitutionality of the fetal heartbeat law.last_img read more

Higher fees pushed to help city budget

first_imgFacing a projected $30 million shortfall in next year’s budget, the Los Angeles City Council moved to quickly impose higher fees Thursday for everything from trash collection to brush clearance. In the first day of hearings by a council panel on the $6.8 billion budget, aides to Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said he is proposing that monthly trash-collection fees increase from $22 to $26 in January. Aides said the mayor also is seeking to speed other fee increases as a key part of adding 1,000 Los Angeles Police Department officers by 2009. “We are in a different position this year and our (focus) has to be to try to get full funding from any increase of a 12-month period rather than waiting for the money to come in later,” said Councilman Bernard Parks, chairman of the council’s Budget and Finance Committee reviewing the spending plan. Deputy Mayor Sally Choi said the mayor is also concerned about the shortfall in revenue and submitted a conservative budget to reflect the city’s fiscal realities. “This budget is about continuing the transformation that began last year with teamwork with the City Council and better management,” Choi said. “It is about managing within our resources.” Police Chief William Bratton said the city already expects to hire 730 officers this year, 80 more than anticipated. The LAPD is expected to have 9,700 officers by June 30. “We have had momentum going in hiring, and I would hate to see it stopped,” Bratton said. The department is budgeted to hire 780 officers this coming year at an estimated cost of $8 million. Bratton also submitted a laundry list of proposals he would like to see funded, including hiring more specialized staffers and purchasing new equipment. He said his office is working with City Controller Laura Chick on an audit to determine if more civilians can be hired to free up officers for patrol duties. In a related move, the council panel said it was sympathetic to City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo’s plea to avert up to $3 million in cuts projected for his department. But while Delgadillo emphasized the need for more gang prosecutors, the council focused on programs in which prosecutors work with schools to reduce crime and truancy. “I think you find that parents respond more when they get a letter from the City Attorney’s Office than they would if we transfer this to the Children, Youth and Families Commission,” Councilman Greig Smith said of one of the proposals in Villaraigosa’s budget. Delgadillo said his office cannot afford any reductions, particularly with the LAPD increasing. “It all goes hand in hand,” Delgadillo said. “If you hire more police officers, we need more prosecutors. If you hire more police officers, we are handcuffed. If we are going to increase public safety resources, we believe we need a corresponding increase in prosecutors.” Council members also expressed concern that the budget not scrimp on public services such as street and sidewalk repairs. “We got in serious problems a couple of years ago by ignoring the infrastructure,” Smith said. “That’s why we have a backlog of 83 miles of streets that need repairs. We have to move very carefully if we are going to get away from the basics.” — Rick Orlov, (213) [email protected]last_img read more

Sanchez move outshone Neymar on social media: Utd chief

first_img“Alexis Sanchez has set a new January signing record in terms of shirt sales — three times that previous record,” Woodward said in United’s earnings report conference call for the second quarter of the 2017-18 financial year.“Last month we further invested in the future of the club by extending Jose Mourinho’s contract and entering into an exchange agreement with Arsenal swapping Mkhitaryan for Sanchez, strengthening Jose’s attacking options.”He said the signing generated some striking social media statistics.“It was the biggest United post on Instagram with two million likes and comments, the most shared United Facebook post ever, the most retweeted United post ever and #Alexis7 was the number one trending topic on Twitter worldwide,” said Woodward.“To put all that into context, the announcement posts generated 75 per cent more interaction than the sale of the world’s most expensive player last summer when Neymar moved from Barcelona to PSG.”– United loss –United, second in the Premier League, blamed US President Donald Trump’s corporate tax reforms as the reason for a £29 million second-quarter loss to the end of December 2017, despite a boom in broadcast income.American-owned United said an exceptional “accounting write-off of £48.8 million” had been made with the US corporate tax rate set to tumble from 35 percent to 21 percent following Trump’s substantive enactment of US tax reform in December.Several large corporations have signalled that the law will result in a short-term hit on earnings repatriated from overseas and due to revaluation of assets.United, who recently retained their place at the top of Deloitte’s Money League, saw broadcast income rise 17.3 percent to £61.6 million thanks in large part to the club’s return to the Champions League.Total revenue for the quarter was up nearly four percent from last year to £163.9 million.Another wave of TV cash could be around the corner, with bids for a new three-year cycle for Premier League TV rights in Britain from 2019-2022 to be presented on Friday.The Premier League is aiming to build on the record £5.14 billion three-year domestic television deal with Sky Sports and BT Sport, which runs until 2019.In a bid to keep the price of rights rising and encourage potential other bidders such as tech giants Amazon and Facebook, 200 games will be broadcast live, up from 168 in the current deal, in a range of packages.The expected bonanza from both for domestic and overseas TV rights saw English clubs spend a record £430 million in the January transfer window.United’s latest financial figures do not include Sanchez’s deal, but wages did increase by 9.4 per cent to £69.6 million, also in part caused by bonuses resulting from the club’s Champions League return.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Manchester United’s Chilean striker Alexis Sanchez has scored on the field and on social media for his new club © AFP/File / PAUL ELLISLONDON, United Kingdom, Feb 8 – The social media frenzy surrounding Alexis Sanchez’s high-profile move to Manchester United dwarfed interest shown when Neymar moved from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain, executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward said Thursday.Sanchez joined United from Premier League rivals Arsenal last month in a deal that saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan go the other way and has made an immediate impact on and off the pitch, scoring on his home debut and setting a new record for shirt sales.last_img read more

Police find cocaine, $10,000 in home

first_img Deputies also found a Palmdale High School literature textbook hollowed out into a hiding place. It was empty but had room enough for a gun or drugs. Deputies found a clip loaded with 9 mm bullets for a pistol, but were still looking for the gun it went to. Charles F. Bostwick, (661) 267-5742 [email protected] local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! PALMDALE – Rock cocaine with a street value of about $3,000 and more than $10,000 in cash were found in a home deputies searched Wednesday after getting a tip that it was receiving lots of suspicious visitors. Surveillance cameras watched the single-story tract home’s driveway, garage, front door and a safe where the money was found, deputies said. The rock cocaine, about 1 ounce, was found hidden inside pants hanging in a closet. “Basically, we got a tip. Someone called and said there was lots of activity at the house,” said Sgt. Kyle Bistline, the leader of Palmdale sheriff’s station’s Partners Against Crime unit. Arrested on suspicion of possession of rock cocaine for sale were Brandy Brunston, 24, a city Parks and Recreation program leader, and Michael Bridges, 24. Deputies said they were considering whether to seek child endangerment charges as well because three children, two under age 4, lived with them. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE‘Mame,’ ‘Hello, Dolly!’ composer Jerry Herman dies at 88 Bridges and Brunston and their children had moved into the rented house on Jenna Lane about a month ago, Bistline said. Deputies got the tip about the suspicious visitors on Monday, investigated, got a search warrant and served it Wednesday morning. Bridges was arrested Wednesday after he drove away from the home. Brunston was arrested when she drove up as deputies were there, Bistline said. Wednesday’s arrest was Bridges’ third in two months. One was in January on suspicion of driving without a valid license and the second was Monday on suspicion of drug possession after deputies got the tip about his house. He was out on bail when he was arrested Wednesday. Deputies used a police dog to sniff out the drugs at the house. The cocaine was found inside a pair of jeans that had been slit open at a flap behind the zipper to form a hiding place. Ten or 20 other pants similarly modified were also found. Hiding the dope in the zipper flap makes it harder for a law-enforcement officer to find it in patting down a suspect, Bistline said. last_img read more

DONEGAL PAEDOPHILE JAILED FOR FAILING TO GIVE ADDRESS TO GARDAI

first_imgA CONVICTED sex offender at the centre of a massive Donegal investigation has been sentenced to nine-months in prison by Judge Eamon O’Brien at Limerick District Court, after he failed to notify gardai of his address within seven days of his release from prison.In July 2010, Leo Forde, 28, with an address in Laghey Road, Ballyshannon, Co Donegal, was convicted and sentenced to three years in prison for sexually assaulting a 13-year-old schoolgirl in 2003.Forde was the fifth person to be convicted of sex crimes against the girl, who was assaulted by the now 28-year-old three times at school shed when he was 19 and she was 13. Donegal Circuit Court suspended the last year of the sentence, and Forde was released on Christmas week in December of last year.Prior to his conviction, Forde was a maintenance worker at a Limerick apartment block but had since lost his job.Gardai arrested Forde in Limerick on December 31 last after he was detained by security staff in Dunnes on Harvey’s Quay for the theft of a box of Budweiser worth €18.He was also charged with the theft of a bottle of wine at a Spar store on Henry Street, three days earlier.Evidence was given that Forde, with an new address in Limerick city centre, gave gardai a false name during his arrest for the alcohol thefts.Forde failed to inform gardai of his address within seven days of his release from prison.Ted McCarthy, solicitor for the accused, told the court that his client had difficulty in registering as he did not have a permanent address, and the compliance to register under legislation could not be done if “you were of no fixed abode”.“This is where my client had difficulty, but he did, and has complied with the requirements, and in fact, registered an address within 10 days and has been compliant ever since”.Judge Eamon O’Brien heard that the maximum sentence upon conviction for the breach of the section 12 requirements of a registered sex offender was a fine not exceeding €5,000 or 12 months imprisonment, or both.In the matters of the thefts, the court heard that the goods had been recovered.Forde was sentenced to nine months in prison, suspended for a period of two years, and bound to the peace for two years.DONEGAL PAEDOPHILE JAILED FOR FAILING TO GIVE ADDRESS TO GARDAI was last modified: March 23rd, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:DONEGAL PAEDOPHILE JAILED FOR FAILING TO GIVE ADDRESS TO GARDAlast_img read more

FPL tips: Transfer advice, including Man United, Arsenal, and Spurs stars

first_img 11 Green reveals how he confronted Sarri after Chelsea’s 6-0 defeat at Man City With tough fixtures out of the way, Chilwell looks a smart choice in defence. Two assists in his last three games, including a measured cross for Demarai Gray’s goal against Cardiff shows he can produce in the final third to back up his attacking play around the area. The Gunners are continuing to plunder goals and the Frenchman already has five to his name, perhaps equally as important in FPL he’s got four assists too, making him a rare dual threat striker. He’s worth trying for games against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Bournemouth. SORRY Okay, he’s got Man City at the weekend but overall, as he returns to form, he seems like a sensible goal scoring pick for the foreseeable future. Five goals in four games is not form to be sniffed at! 11 With Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen returning to fitness it’s hard to trust him fully but with his stunning form – four goals and one assist so far – and an ownership of just 1.3 per cent he’s worth a risk. He’s looking a real threat for Spurs this season, even when it’s off the bench. Liverpool’s signings under Michael Edwards – will Minamino be the next big hit? 11 Sky Sports presenter apologises for remarks made during Neville’s racism discussion tense gameday cracker changes 11 whoops Another of the FPL’s unreliable midfielder stars, Silva still only has three goals and one assist despite good form and plenty of minutes for the Premier League champions. predicted Foxes midfielder Maddison hasn’t delivered in the last four matches and is now missing at least one through a knee injury. He’s also out of the England squad, which means we should doubt how fit he will be to face Brighton on November 22. 11 revealed The Brazilian, signed in the summer from Lazio, has had ups and downs across the campaign but looked fantastic against Burnley. He came up with two goals and now faces up against Huddersfield. Long-term he also looks a good prospect with just one top-half team as an opponent in the next six, while other lower quality fixtures are also on the horizon over the next 10 gameweeks. 11 How we walk into work after a great FPL weekend… Oxlade-Chamberlain suffers another setback as Klopp confirms serious injury latest Time to earn the bragging rights with your Fantasy Premier League team.If you’ve been getting grief after a dodgy spell but are ready to rock your rivals with a shock result – like Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho – then listen up. Boxing Day fixtures: All nine Premier League games live on talkSPORT In: Anthony Martial (Manchester United) – £7.5m 11 In: Ben Chilwell (Leicester) – £5.0m Out: Bernardo Silva (Manchester City) – £7.6m In: Erik Lamela (Tottenham) – £6.4m The average first-team salaries at every Premier League club in 2019 Sometimes you need to speculate to accumulate and while Fraser is a sensational cheap performer the Cherries are about to hit a shocking run of fixtures. They will face only four bottom-half teams in their next 11 games. If you got on board early you will have made some money on him so sell while people are high on him. 11 Guardiola-inspired tactics: Is this how Arsenal will line up under Arteta? In: Alexandre Lacazette (Arsenal) – £9.7m Much like Maddison, Maguire is out for both the Foxes and England. For a £5.5million defender, this isn’t too handy. A one-week transfer if you have no either issues in your squad will be a smart tactic. Out: James Maddison (Leicester) – £6.9m How Everton could look in January under Ancelotti with new signings Most Popular Premier League Stories huge blow Out: Romelu Lukaku (Manchester United) – £10.8m Liverpool news live: Klopp reveals when Minamino will play and issues injury update Currently training alone after his hamstring injury but we’d advise against having him in your squad right now. He was out of form anyway and if he’s rushed back it’s unlikely he’ll play a full 90, let alone grab a goal. 11 In: Felipe Anderson (West Ham) – £6.8m 11 Did Mahrez just accidentally reveal Fernandinho is leaving Man City this summer? TOP WORK 11 Out: Harry Maguire (Leicester) – £5.5m Out: Ryan Fraser (Bournemouth) – £6.1m Whether you’re a manager who reacts to in-form players, loves a bargain, or one who looks to predict the next big FPL thing, you need a bit of advice every now and again.So who do you need to sell and sign this week?

South African invests R7bn in ports, ocean economy

first_img9 March 2016Transnet National Ports Authority has allocated R7-billion to build new port facilities to grow South Africa’s ocean economy.Already, 200 jobs had been created in new port facilities. Over the last 12 months, existing ports had been refurbished and maintained, the Economic Sectors, Employment and Infrastructure Development cluster said yesterday.The cluster held a media briefing in Cape Town on Tuesday, 8 March, which was chaired by Rural Development and Land Reform Minister Gugile Nkwinti. The cluster said work to grow the ocean economy was gaining momentum.Oil and gas hubs“Through the public-private partnership to establish Saldanha Bay as an oil and gas hub, an investment of R9.2-billion has been realised, which will be utilised over the next five years,” Nkwinti explained.“With 14 licences issued for oil and gas exploration, drilling of two exploration wells for potential oil and gas finds will take place along the South African coast. The investment in gas infrastructure has commenced and will contribute to energy security.”Work on the offshore supply base has started, which will lead to Saldanha Bay attracting oil rigs for maintenance and repair. This will create secondary job opportunities for surrounding communities.Boatbuilding infrastructureThe boat-building sector had been revitalised, according to the cluster, leading to 500 direct jobs and 3 000 indirect jobs.The Port of Durban in #SouthAfrica is Sub-Saharan #Africa‘s largest port.

Extension of the biodiesel tax credit

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The bill included many issues of interest and impact to soybean farmers. However, it didn’t include an extension of the biodiesel tax credit that expired last year.The biodiesel tax credit and other expired temporary credits were not addressed in the comprehensive tax reform bill, but there is an effort to have a separate tax extender package included on another legislative vehicle that could pass before the end of 2017 or early in 2018. The Ohio Soybean Association and the American Soybean Association, as well as the National Biodiesel Board, are working to get the biodiesel tax credit attached to a revenue bill that might be moving through Congress.Soybean farmers have played a leading role in establishing and developing the biodiesel industry. From the first investments made by the soybean industry, biodiesel has grown into a domestic market approaching 3 billion gallons.last_img read more

Working with Flowcharts in Adobe After Effects

first_imgDo you have tips for organizing your workflow in After Effects? Let us know in the comments. The Flowchart PanelTo access the flowchart, first I’ll make sure I have my desired composition open or selected in the project panel. Next, I’ll select Composition > Composition Flowchart. Once the flowchart panel opens, I’ll see all of my comps listed. I can also see all of the layers in each composition. The problem is that I’m not really enjoying this layout, so I’m going to customize my flowchart to make it more intuitive and easier to navigate.Display OptionsThere are a number of ways I can customize the display of my flowchart, all of which are in the panel drop-down menu. First, I don’t really like that the chart is flowing up. I prefer a left-to-right layout, with the original comp at the far left, so I’m going to change this setting in the panel menu. I’ll set the justification to left. If I wanted a simpler view of things, I could strip the flowchart down so it’s displaying only the comps.Navigating the FlowchartOne of my favorite aspects of the flowchart panel is the ability to quickly navigate and access comps and layers throughout my project. Anytime I select an asset in the flowchart panel, it will quickly show me that asset in the project or composition panel. If I select a layer in the composition panel, it will highlight the asset in the flowchart panel. Double-clicking a comp in the flowchart panel will open that comp.The Mini-FlowchartIf working in the flowchart panel seems a bit too counterintuitive, check out the mini-flowchart. There are several ways to access this — the main way being Composition > Composition Mini-Flowchart. There’s also a mini-flowchart button in the composition panel, or you can just press the Tab key while your composition panel is highlighted. Quickly jump between comps and precomps in the mini-flowchart using the arrow key. To launch a comp, simply click on it. Get a bird’s-eye view of your After Effects project with flowcharts.Top image via Shutterstock.When you’re working on a complex After Effects project, you might find yourself nesting compositions. A nest involves a composition within a composition. To create a nested composition, you simply highlight a single layer or group of layers and select Layer > Pre-compose.

first_imgAgainst the backdrop of JNU row, the government hadAgainst the backdrop of JNU row, the government had earlier this month acknowledged in the Rajya Sabha that the definition of sedition law is “very wide”.Home Minister Rajnath Singh had agreed for an all-party meeting to discuss the issue after the Law Commission submits its report on sedition law.The government had rejected Opposition charge that it was rampantly using the law, contending that except the one case of JNU, sedition cases have mostly been registered outside Delhi.”Anybody, who speaks against the government can be booked under sedition law. Amendments have been suggested because the definition is very wide…there are various cases. That is why concerns were have been raised. I would like the ask the Law Commission to consider a very comprehensive review,” Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju had said replying to questions.Rijiju said the Law Commission, in its 42nd report submitted in June, 1971, had noted that the sedition law is “defective” but did not favour its deletion.Quoting figures from a report of National Crime Records Bureau, he said a total of 47 cases under the sedition law were reported across the country in 2014 of which the maximum 16 cases were registered in Bihar in which 28 arrests were made.The second highest is Jharkhand, he had said adding that Kerala and Odisha follow them in the descending order.

Vikas to get Best Boxer award at AIBA 70th anniversary gala

first_imgBy Poonam Mehra New Delhi, Nov 27 (PTI) In a historic first for Indian boxing, former Asian Games gold-medallist Vikas Krishan will be presented the Best Boxer award by the International Boxing Association for his performance this year, during the world bodys 70th anniversary celebrations on December 20. “In recognition of your achievements throughout the year, AIBA would like to use the occasion to present you with the 2016 AIBA Pro Boxing (APB) Best Boxer award,” AIBA President wrote in a letter sent to the two-time Olympian. The 24-year-old Vikas is currently in New Jersey, USA. He he has been training there for more than a fortnight to prepare for the season ahead. The two-time Asian Games medallist, a gold in 2010 and a bronze in 2014, Vikas competed in two APB bouts this year. He lost the first but went on to beat Kenyas Nickson Abaka in the second bout that was held in Delhi which was conducted by the Professional Boxing Organisation of India (PBOI). Abaka is currently placed 8th in the AIBA APB rankings. “It is a huge honour but I am not particularly happy because I have already missed what I really wanted this year and that is an Olympic medal,” Vikas told PTI over phone from New Jersey. The Haryana-lad, who is also a former World Championships bronze medallist, had gone down in the quarterfinals of the Rio Olympics. “I am told I am the first Indian boxer to get such an award. That is a great thing but I cannot say that it makes me very happy because the Olympic disappointment is still there,” the middleweight boxer said. Vikas said he decided to be in US for training to improve his defensive skills. “I have decided to set small goals for myself. So right now I am focussing on the World Championships next year. Tokyo Olympics is far off and by that time I intend to have a flawless game. I am training like a professional boxer so that I master the art of defence,” he said. “I want to build a momentum which carries me through. In 2019 when the Olympic qualifiers start, I want to be the first Indian boxer to qualify so that I get enough time to plan. I qualified too late for Rio, just a couple of months before the Games. I dont want that to happen again,” he said. “I dont want to leave it to the last moment,” he added. During the same gala, the celebrated M C Mary Kom will be presented the Legends Award in recognition of her contribution to the sport. PTI PM CM CMadvertisementlast_img read more

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 passes through FCC earlier than expected

first_imgSamsung’s next flagship phone may not be too far away now. The much-rumoured Galaxy Note 9 has been certified by the US FCC, which indicates that its launch is imminent. Notably, the upcoming phablet sees an earlier certification compared to last year’s Galaxy Note 8, which received the FCC stamp around the end of July. While the Note 8 was launched on August 23 last year, the Galaxy Note 9 is being tipped for an earlier unveiling, possibly on August 9.The Galaxy Note 9 model spotted at the FCC is the international version with model number SM-N960F with a list of various LTE bands on board. The US-specific version likely has the model number SM-N960U. The certification doesn’t reveal a lot apart from the fact that the phone supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC and MST which is used for Samsung Pay.Some CAD renders earlier this month gave us an idea of what to expect from the design of the phone. It’s not surprising that Samsung may just go with a similar look as the Galaxy Note 8, seeing as how the Galaxy S9 did not vary much from the Galaxy S8. What may be a relief for some is that Samsung is still saying no to the notch. The Galaxy Note 9 is expected to sport a similar 6.3-inch Infinity Display with narrow bezels on the top and bottom. The biggest aesthetical change may be seen on the back with regards to the placement of the fingerprint sensor. On the Galaxy Note 8, the sensor was placed right next to the dual camera setup, which made it difficult for some to reach and avoid smudging the camera lens. Renders of the Galaxy Note 9 suggest the sensor will be moved below the dual cameras.advertisementAs far the rest of the innards are concerned, the Galaxy Note 9 is expected to be powered by an octa-core Exynos 9810 for most countries including India, while the US variant is expected to carry the Snapdragon 845 chip. Additionally, the memory and storage configuration is said to start from 6GB to 8GB of RAM and 64GB to a whopping 512GB of storage, but we’ll know the exact details only at the time of launch. The upcoming phone is also expect to house a larger 3,850mAh battery compared to the underwhelming 3,300mAh battery inside the Galaxy Note 8.The Galaxy Note 9 is also expected to come with an updated Bixby 2.0 with better voice recognition and language support. Cameras will likely be a key focus area as well and there are reports that the phone could bear a 16MP primary camera with f/1.4 aperture, which would be a huge upgrade over the Galaxy Note 8. Elsewhere, the Note 9 could sport a similar 12MP + 12MP dual camera setup as the Galaxy S9+ with dual aperture. We’ll know more about the upcoming flagship as we approach closer to its unveiling.last_img read more

Top players fume at Haryana govt over prize money cut

first_imgChandigarh: Top wrestlers Bajrang Punia, Vinesh Phogat and Yogeshwar Dutt on Wednesday slammed the Haryana government for “cut in prize money” due to them for winning international medals, an allegation denied by the state sports minister. The Haryana government was already facing flak for scrapping an award function which was to be held on Monday at Panchkula to give away cash prizes worth Rs 90 crore to about 3,000 sportspersons who have won medals in national and international competitions. Also Read – Djokovic heaps praise on ‘very complete’ MedvedevInstead of rewarding the sportspersons in public, the state government decided to transfer the cash prize directly into their accounts. Some of the players, however, claimed that they got reduced amount in their accounts. State Sports Minister Anil Vij, however, said that there was no cut in prize money. “Haryana youth gave medals to the country. Haryana may be a small state, but it has made entire country proud on numerous occasions. Their (players’) morale should not be lowered by cut in prize money. My request to Haryana government is to reconsider this,” Asian champion Punia tweeted.

If you cannot stand on your promise, then in future what expectation a player can have from you,” he wrote. Phogat, a gold winner in 2018 Asian Games, was more vocal, asking the Haryana government to take back their prize money.last_img read more

Release Royal Air Maroc Does Not Make Compromises in Passenger Safety

Rabat – Royal Air Maroc (RAM) denied, in a statement on Monday, the conclusions of a French television report that alleged the carrier hired unvetted foreigners to copilot flights through pay-to-fly training programs – an action that European officials said could jeopardize passenger safety due to the copilots’ lack of experience.The airline said in a statement it “does not make any compromises” in regards to passenger safety and did not work with the Lithuanian office investigated in the report in order to offer paid training programs for entry-level pilots.Moroccan and foreign hires for pilot positions go through additional training and a flight simulation test overseen by a flight manager with over 10,000 logged flight hours before they are allowed to fly, according to the statement. “The training of foreign pilots by Royal Air Morocco is not commercial,” the airline added.The office probed by Channel 3 runs in association with AviationCV – a jobs search engine for the airline industry that manages over 100,000 profiles of pilots, engineers, and other related professionals, according to the company’s official website.The channel followed entry-level pilot, Julien Fournier, via hidden camera as he visited the Baltic Aviation Academy (BAA), a private flight school that operates in coordination with AviationCV. There he asked a training manager for information on available “pay-to-fly” programs that would allow him to log flight hours – necessary to land a job as a pilot for a commercial airline –  by paying thousands of Euros to a carrier that would allow him to fly as a copilot without salary.The manager who spoke to Fournier said one of the training programs available would allow him to log 500 flight hours as a copilot with RAM for a total of 62,500 euros. BAA already had three trainees working on RAM flights to and from Europe, she claimed, adding that the Moroccan carrier “does not conduct an entry evaluation for pilots paying for the program.”“You pay and you start right away,” she told Fournier, who was taking notes in the scene.RAM said it started hiring foreign pilots in 2002 for their flight experience and holds them to the same professional standards that are the policy of major European airlines. read more

Despite more media attention civilians in armed conflict face grim realities UN

In a briefing to an open meeting of the Security Council on the issue of civilians in armed conflict, Under-Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs Kenzo Oshima said that while the primary responsibility for the protection of civilians in armed conflict rested with governments, it was important to reach beyond traditional lines, create synergies among a wide range of actors and require the commitment and cooperation of Member States, regional organizations, non-governmental organizations, the media, the private sector and academia. The situation in Afghanistan highlighted many of the issues addressed by UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan on the protection of civilians in armed conflict, Mr. Oshima said. He went on to outline several initiatives underway to implement UN recommendations on the issue, including a “road map” that would identify institutions for their implementation.ist in the preparation of the road map, Mr. Oshima said his Office had organized a series of workshops for interested Member States, UN staff, agencies, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), non-governmental organizations and experts. The Under-Secretary-General also described an aide-memoire process that would serve as a checklist to ensure that the protection of civilians was systematically taken into consideration in establishing, changing or closing peacekeeping mandates. A third initiative involved steps to ensure closer coordination between the Department of Peacekeeping Operations and the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. Following Mr. Oshima’s briefing, the Council engaged in an exchange of questions and answers, with the participation of representatives from Ukraine, Singapore, Norway, Colombia, Ireland, United Kingdom, France, Bangladesh, Mali, Mauritius and Tunisia.Follo read more

Global foreign direct investment rises to precrisis levels UN reports

Global foreign direct investment (FDI) rose to levels not seen since the start of the global economic crisis in 2008, increasing by 11 per cent in 2013 to an estimated $1.46 trillion, with the lion’s share going to developing countries, according to a United Nations report released today.FDI flows to developing economies reached a new high of $759 billion, accounting for 52 per cent, and transition economies also recorded a new high of $126 billion, 45 per cent up from the previous year and accounting for 9 per cent of the global total, UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) figures showed.But developed countries remained at an historical low (39 per cent) for the second consecutive year. They increased by12 per cent to $576 billion, but only to 44 per cent of their peak value in 2007, with FDI to the European Union (EU) increasing, while flows to the United States continued their decline.Although inflows to developed countries appear to be recovering over 2012, the picture is mixed: despite positive signs of recovery in some developed country regions such as parts of the EU, flows to the United States failed to reverse their decline, contrary to other signs of economic recovery over the past year. Inflows to Japan rose by 61 per cent to $2.8 billion, but Australia and New Zealand saw sharp declines of 28 per cent to $40 billion and 75 per cent to $0.5 billion, respectively.The increase for developing economies was mainly driven by Latin American and the Caribbean, and Africa while developing Asia, the world’s largest recipient region for FDI, saw flows at a level similar to 2012. Total inflows to developing Asia, comprising East Asia, South Asia, South-East Asia and West Asia, amounted to an estimated $406 billion in 2013, a level similar to 2012. The performance of sub-regions continues to diverge, with FDI growth rates ranging between 3 per cent in South Asia ($33 billion), 2 per cent in South-East Asia (116 billion), 1 per cent in East Asia ($219 billion) and a drop of 20 per cent in West Asia (down to $38 billion).With inflows to China at an estimated $127 billion, including both financial and non-financialSectors, the country again ranked second in the world, closing the gap with the US to some $32 billion. India experienced a 17 per cent growth to $28 billion, despite unexpected capital outflows in the middle of the year. FDI growth slowed in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), as inflows to Singapore, the largest recipient in South-East Asia, stagnated at $56 billion. But prospects for the group continue to be promising, as more FDI arrives from China and Japan in a wide range of sectors, including infrastructure, finance and manufacturing. West Asia’s two main recipients, Saudi Arabia and Turkey, registered significant declines of 19 per cent (to $9.9 billion) and 15 per cent (to $11 billion) respectively. Turkey witnessed virtually no large FDI deals. In addition, the worsening political instability in many parts of the region have caused uncertainty and negatively affected investment.Flows to Latin America and the Caribbean increased by 18 per cent, the fourth consecutive year of growth, to an estimated $294 billion. While in previous years growth was largely driven by South America, in 2013 Central America and the Caribbean were the main recipients, with increases of 93 per cent and 38 per cent respectively. Flows to South America declined by 7 per cent. The $18 billion acquisition of Grupo Modelo in Mexico explains most of Central America’s increase, while the strong rise in the Caribbean was mainly driven by the British Virgin Islands.The decline of flows to South America came after three years of strong growth bolstered by the strength of commodity prices that fuelled rising profits on investment, as well as reinvested earnings in mining. Decreasing commodity prices seem to have brought a stop to this boom, especially in countries such as Chile, with a drop of 33 per cent to $20.4 billion and Peru, with a drop of 2 per cent to $12 billion.In addition, FDI to Brazil, the largest recipient in the sub-region, with 47 per cent of South America’s total in 2013, declined by a slight 3.9 per cent, but remained significant at $63 billion. Nevertheless, this decline should be seen in the context of strong growth in previous years that boosted FDI in Brazil to historical highs.Inflows to Africa rose by 6.8 per cent to an estimated $56.3 billion, due to the strong performance of Southern Africa, including South Africa and Mozambique which experienced record levels of more than $10 billion and $7 billion respectively, as well as lower levels of divestment in Angola compared to previous years. Persistent political and social tensions continued to subdue flows to North Africa, where only Morocco registered solid growth of 24 per cent to $3.5 billion. Nonetheless, there are signs that investors are ready to return to the region, with many big cross-border deals targeting Egypt. In Sub-Saharan Africa, Nigeria’s lacklustre performance ($5.5 billion) is the result of a retreat from the oil industry.Transition economies experienced a significant 45 per cent rise, reaching a record level of an estimated $126 billion, with Russia jumping by 83 per cent to $94 billion, making it the world’s third largest recipient for the first time ever. The rise was predominantly ascribed to the large acquisition by BP (United Kingdom) of 18.5 per cent of Rosneft (Russia Federation) as part of Rosneft’s $57 billion acquisition of TNK-BP, which is owned by a company registered in the British Virgin Islands. read more

Sophie Okonedo on stage as Cleopatra Sophie Okonedo is best known for her Academy Award nominated role in Hotel Rwanda. Since then, she has won a Tony for Best Featured Actress in a Play (A Raisin in the Sun) as well as a Golden Globe for The Secret Life of Bees.In Antony and Cleopatra, “Okonedo radiates amusement, wilfulness, all the necessary push and pull of attitudes,” said Telegraph theatre critic Dominic Cavendish.“Around her, the director does much to answer the play’s equivalent tug between epic and domestic, exotic and politic, tragedy and comedy, laying out the complex action with calmness and clarity,” he added.Earlier this year, Godwin said: “Cleopatra is an iconic part, but it is vertiginous and it requires guts,” he says. “And Sophie has guts. She isn’t vain and she is willing to go to strange and dark places. “She is radiant and sexy and she can be emotionally true.”On Fiennes, he said: “Failure hangs over the play, and the trap is to play Antony like he’s a failure. Ralph will make him a man of action, of intensity and heroism, rather than a depleted figure.”Theatre goers wishing to see the play before its final show on January 19 next year could will need to hurry to buy tickets. As of last night, the only seats available before then are at 1:30 pm on Wednesday December 5. read more

De leau froide pour comprendre les migraines

first_imgDe l’eau froide pour comprendre les migraines Qui n’a jamais ressenti cette “barre” vous assaillant le front à la suite d’une ingestion un peu précipitée de glace ou d’eau froide ? Selon les scientifiques, ces douleurs aiguës et les fameuses migraines pourraient avoir des origines communes.Afin de comprendre les causes des douleurs crâniennes, des chercheurs américains sous la houlette du Dr Jorge Serrador de l’Harvard Medical School, ont fait appel à 13 adultes volontaires pour subir une “froide” expérience. Au cours de celle-ci, ils ont fait ingéré aux participants à l’aide d’une paille collée au palais de l’eau glacée puis de l’eau à température ambiante. Il était alors demandé aux bénévoles d’indiquer par des gestes de la main lorsqu’une douleur apparaissait puis s’atténuait. Dans le même temps, les chercheurs ont suivi via plusieurs Doppler trans-crâniens les variations de circulation sanguine du cerveau. Une corrélation a ainsi pu être émise entre la survenue de la douleur et la dilatation de certaines artères et notamment les artères cérébrales. Au moment de l’ingestion d’eau froide, les artères du cerveau se gorgent de sang chaud de manière à le faire affluer vers la tête. La pression intra-crânienne augmente alors brutalement, et une douleur intense survient. En réponse à cette “surpression” qui peut être dommageable pour le cerveau, les vaisseaux se contractent aussitôt afin de rétablir la pression mettant par conséquent un terme à la gène. Cette réaction physiologique serait alors simplement un mécanisme de défense de l’organisme qui, afin de garder l’organe prioritaire – le cerveau – à température optimale de fonctionnement, augmente la circulation sanguine en son sein.À lire aussiChien : l’Homme aurait impacté la structure du cerveau du chienOr, selon les scientifiques, il se pourrait que des phénomènes similaires soient à l’origine des migraines ou du moins de certains types de maux de tête. On pourrait donc très bien imaginer dans ces cas précis des traitements “vasodilatateurs” régulant la pression dans le cerveau et donc agir sur la douleur occasionnée. Néanmoins, les scientifiques doivent encore continuer les recherches avant de pouvoir confirmer un tel phénomène et donc mettre au point un éventuel traitement.En France, la migraine toucherait 6 à 10 millions de personnes et la moitié d’entre elles espèrent y remédier grâce à un traitement efficace.Le 9 mai 2012 à 15:35 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Barcelona wont stop until they also sign Matthijs de Ligt

first_imgAfter finally landing Frenkie de Jong’s transfer for next summer, FC Barcelona won’t stop until they have also sealed the deal for Matthijs de Ligt.At the very start of the season, there was a number of publications that talked constantly about FC Barcelona signing both Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt as a duo.After the midfielder was announced earlier this week, the Catalan club has already secured one of the two players they were after and they are now ready to keep their assault on the other main target.Defender Matthijs de Ligt recently spoke to NU Sport after his teammate Frenkie was announced, he revealed that he is feeling very happy for the decision De Jong has made and he didn’t deny the rumors that still tie him to FC Barcelona.The player knows that trying to go against those rumors can only make things worse for him, so he decided to keep working hard on the squad and just wait for any possible development about his future to fall into his lap.The whole negotiation process might prove to be even more complicated than Frenkie’s because the “cat’s out of the bag” in regards to Barcelona’s intentions, and several other clubs are also after Ajax’s young skipper.#VÍDEO Matthijs de Ligt declara su amor al @FCBarcelona_es 😍 #FCB #FCBLive #Mercado pic.twitter.com/OJ6af1MbFW— Mundo Deportivo TV (@Multimedia_MD) January 25, 2019While talking to NU Sport about the possibility of signing a new contract with Barcelona, Matthijs de Ligt revealed the following: “I can’t stop journalists from discussing the rumors, that is part of football,” said De Ligt on NU Sport.“Now that Frenkie has sealed his transfer, rumors about me getting stronger is a possibility but all I care about is playing my games for Ajax right now and that is the only thing I care about at the moment.”“I will just keep doing my thing and everything will be okay. I do think that any player would love to play for a club like FC Barcelona sometime in his career.”“We will see where I end up, right now I’m happy at Ajax and I hope I can have a great season here. Or maybe even more than just one season.”“I think it’s great for Frenkie to play for FC Barcelona. He deserves it and it’s fantastic for him to finally be able to stop talking about the affair, although his transfer negotiations didn’t really affect his concentration with us.”FC Barcelona, Valencia CFMatch Preview: Barcelona vs Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Is derby time in La Liga, as Barcelona welcomes Valencia to the Camp Nou Stadium tonight at 21:00 (CET).“My replacement? Lisandro Magallan has proved that he is an experienced player, he knows exactly what the club wants from him as a defender,” he concluded.”Todos querrían ir al Barcelona”.– De Ligt pic.twitter.com/iz9nyCQRyu— Blaugrana FC (@BlaugranaFC10) January 25, 2019For FC Barcelona signing Matthijs won’t be easy at all because the rest of the clubs that were after Frenkie de Jong, will obviously double down on De Ligt as some of them considered that the Catalan club beat them to the punch in the race to sign the midfielder.Paris Saint-Germain in specific is very troubled against Barcelona, as they have not only beaten them to sign De Jong but they have also rattled the cage with Adrien Rabiot and practically forced the player to not sign a new contract extension.Nasser Al-Khelaifi has the plan of going after Philipe Coutinho next summer according to Diario Sport, he wants to take one of the best players the Catalan club has and find a replacement for all the missing midfielder the French club has at the moment.They will not only come after the Brazilian, but they will also attempt to take De Ligt out of Barcelona’s hands if they can.To those who don’t remember, this whole war between both clubs started when FC Barcelona tried to sign Italian Marco Verratti and wasn’t able to complete the deal.PSG then came to sign Neymar in revenge for that, and Barcelona now has landed the second blow against PSG.1/2 Sólo falta De ligt @FCBarcelona_es pic.twitter.com/mAnXlVYKAK— Pablo👽 (@P4bloT) January 25, 2019Which club would be better for Matthijs de Ligt to continue his professional career, FC Barcelona or PSG? Please share your opinion in the comment section down below.last_img read more

Naidu today "This is all optics Naidu came and met Sonia Gandhi They have to show all this Had there been anything substantial Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Finance Minister Jaitley would have gone on Twitter now "Had there been any formal assurance the prime minister would have been first to speak The finance minister would have gone and said everything on his blog and started tweeting" Sibal

Election 2017 Published: February 21 2014 4:29 am Related News As Adam Smith once put it “On the road from the City of Scepticism I had to pass through the Valley of Ambiguity” When I entered this House I was sceptical on whether I would live up to its daunting standards and I leave today as sceptical but certainly with no ambiguity In the debates there have been moments of highs and lows — disruptions but also debates of extraordinary quality The stint in Rajya Sabha gave me the opportunity to raise issues germane to the development of Bihar I did whatever I could to highlight Bihar’s achievements challenges and opportunities Notwithstanding Bihar’s glorious history from being the seat of the oldest republic and the cradle of the great kingdoms of the Guptas and Mauryas it fell back on times The present regime under the leadership of Shri Nitish Kumar has brought about far-reaching economic and social changes It will be fair to say that the outcome is neither the work of one party nor one person It is the outcome of the joint efforts of the NDA of which my party was an alliance partner till June last year And the collective political leadership of both the parties played a critical role in bringing about these far-reaching changes The challenges of Bihar are far from over Sustaining high rates of economic growth over coming social challenges moving over from identity-based development-centric policies enticing private investment and improving physical and social infrastructure to reach national averages in our lifetime would be the litmus test of the present and future political leadership of the state I want to speak a little on what I perceive to be the five key challenges of India: First how to achieve high rates of sustained economic growth without accentuating inequality Twenty-first century capitalism may have metamorphosed (or undergone creative destruction as Joseph Schumpeter would have said) in multiple ways from laissez-faire capitalism to social democratic capitalism to what is now called Capitalism 50 Contemporary economic literature suggests that economic liberalisation unleashes forces of competition improving productivity enlarging the bouquet of choice for consumers improves Total Factor Productivity and enhances growth But are there limits to what is pejoratively described as neoliberal capitalism How does one balance the virtues of growth with the compulsions of equity Can there be a “Conscionable Capitalism” relevant to India’s socio-economic compulsions Second when will we ever have time to reform the rubric of governance And to reform Parliament itself — the centrepiece of our governance architecture As India has become increasingly integrated and interdependent with the world are the parliamentary rules procedures methods of work and exercise of parliamentary superintendence over the executive in India adequate to meet contemporary challenges Should not the parliamentary calendar be fixed and predictable Should budget-making be shrouded in secrecy and all parliamentary engagement become ex-post and not ex-ante And in an interdependent world should the executive have the latitude to make far-reaching international commitments on trade on environment on energy without parliamentary approval Should we not at least devote one day to discuss India’s Five-Year Plan These are matters for this House to ponder over Third the changing role of the state In a poor society like ours with inadequate social security systems what would be a more optimum mix of poverty alleviation measures and a new form of welfareism which we have embraced as legally enforcing entitlements Unless radically different ways of delivering service and implementation are adopted these added responsibilities of the state will make growth itself a far cry Fourth how to break the conundrum between agriculture manufacturing and employment in a country with adverse land-man ratio To raise agricultural productivity would need externalities of scale by creating alternative gainful employment opportunities Economies of scale would entail alternative employment opportunities in manufacturing hubs which has scarcely begun Orderly urbanisation in major cities is inescapable for sustaining migration in the quest for alternative employment opportunities Managing the environmental consequences of growth is easier said than done Our carbon footprints may be low but conscious steps which will reconfigure economic activity patterns and variations in alternative forms of energy — and in agriculture industry and services — will prove challenging These may require new approaches and new ideas beyond what we have tried To this end John Maynard Keynes had said “The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping from old ones” Finally making India an innovation-driven society Technological and organisational innovation is the key to higher productivity and competitiveness We must encourage and incentivise innovation and its diffusion in academia and government as well as in enterprises of all sizes Innovation should focus not only on

Juvenile Justice Board after a preliminary assessment in December 2016 The case is currently being heard before a designated children’s court The court however was also hearing the adult accused’s case The prosecution had contended that separate records were being maintained to ensure that the trial is not conducted as a joint one Principal Judge S B Agarwal in his order passed on December 10 stated the two proceedings could not be said to be joint since they were registered as two different cases and evidence too would be recorded separately “What is required to be seen is that if both these cases are tried by the same court whether there is possibility of interest of juvenile being jeopardised On the contrary no prejudice would be caused to the prosecution if the case of the adult is tried by some other court except for some logistical inconvenience” the court stated The Judge further said that while the trial court would have to keep in mind that the accused was a juvenile and the case could only be transferred to the children’s court and not to any other court The court has transferred the adult accused’s case to another court While the juvenile was released on bail last month and charges likely to be framed against him this month before the children’s court the adult’s bail plea is currently pending The juvenile has also filed an application seeking preliminary assessment to be conducted by the children’s court to decide whether the case should be heard before it or be transferred back to the Juvenile Board The prosecution has been directed to file a reply
