Modi, Shah ‘dreaming of harming’ Uttar Pradesh: Mayawati

first_imgHitting back at Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah, BSP supremo Mayawati today termed them as “guru—chela” who, she claimed, are .“dreaming of harming” Uttar Pradesh.“Guru and chela have together harmed the country…’guru’ means Modi and ‘chela’ means Shah… now, they together are dreaming of harming the state,” she alleged at an election rally here.BJP leaders have been referring to Mayawati and Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, as ‘bua—bhatija’ (aunt and nephew) during campaigning.Referring to Shah’s ‘KASAB’ acronym for the Congress, SP and BSP, Mayawati reiterated, “There is no other Kasab (meaning terrorist) bigger than the BJP president… Gujarat is an example before you to see and ensure that this Kasab does not come (to power) here“.She said, “Muslims need to vote en masse for the BSP, whose Dalit vote is intact and is ready to defeat the BJP…if Muslims vote for the BSP, the BJP will get a setback and it will not be able to come to power in the state.” Alleging that minorities, especially Muslims, are being given “step—motherly treatment” she cautioned Muslims against voting for the SP, saying it would “directly benefit the BJP“.She also alleged that BJP will “end reservation by following the RSS agenda” or will make it ineffective.On BJP’s promise that the party would bring prosperity on coming to power in the state, Mayawati said, “After playing petty politics of graveyard—cremation ground, Kasab, slaughter houses and donkeys of Gujarat they are now making more promises.“They can make any promise they want like the ones made during the Lok Sabha polls, but people will not fall for it,” she said.Because of the wrong policies of the BJP—led government at the Centre and the SP government in Uttar Pradesh, 22 crore people of the state are angry and frustrated, Mayawati claimed.On the SP—Congress alliance, the BSP chief said, “The Samajwadi Party is considered symbolic to crime, corruption and ‘jungle raj’ People have to decide whether they will vote for the tainted face of SP—Congress or the clean one of BSP which has shown how the rule of law is imposed.”last_img read more

Blackwater owner hoping for the best amid lockout fears

first_imgThe impasse between the PBA Board of Governors remain, but Blackwater team owner Dioceldo Sy observed that cooler heads have prevailed since the two sides’ war of words two weeks ago.Sy is also expecting the search for the next PBA commissioner to commence soon.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. MOST READ With the fire between the Board of Governors still yet to be doused, expressed worries about a possibility of a lockout in the PBA’s 43rd season.Sy shared that the possibility of the seven teams excusing themselves from playing was initially discussed when the status of Narvasa’s commissionership first came up.“When they were fighting for the commissioner, we said that if they force it, the seven teams might not play, so there’s gonna be a lockout because the five other teams cannot play on their own,” he said.But he is hopeful that the whatever issue affecting the league would be resolved in time for the opening of the 43rd season.“Let’s hope for the best. Let’s just hope that there won’t be any lockout. We don’t want to see something like the NBA lockout a few years ago and there’s no tournament. We need to give fans assurance that by December 17, the PBA should be on the roll already,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT Stronger peso trims PH debt value to P7.9 trillion Japan ex-PM Nakasone who boosted ties with US dies at 101 QC cops nab robbery gang leader, cohort Read Next “Now, it’s no longer that heated in the board room.

Indian cricketers’ Asian Games participation in jeopardy: IOA

first_imgIndian cricketers’ refusal to sign the WADA anti-doping code has cast a shadow over their participation in next year’s Asian Games, admits IOA General Secretary Randhir Singh.”If you don’t comply (with the WADA) as far as the rules and regulations are concerned you cannot participate in the Asian Games,” said Randhir.Indian cricketers, backed by the BCCI, are not ready to sign the whereabout clause of the code, which makes it mandatory for players to reveal three-months in advance their location for out of competition dope test.”Rules and regulations of the Olympic Council of Asia are very clear, you have to comply by the WADA rules as fas as doping is concerned. So there is no way that anyone who does not comply can participate in the Asian Games,” he added.The Indian Olympic Association Secretary General, though, said he did not see the situation worsening for the players.”I am very confident that this stand-off is not going to last. It’s lack of understanding and I am sure we will get over it in few days. The Asian Games are still a year and four-five months away but if something like this happens it will depend on the OCA to take the decision,” he told CNN-IBN.Asked if there was any chance that the ‘whereabouts’ clause could be dropped by the WADA, Randhir said he did not see any such possibility in the near future.last_img read more

Jadeja hearing: Team confident of a pro-India verdict

first_imgBCCI general manager MV Sridhar is being flown in on Thursday to represent India during the hearing of the Jadeja-Anderson controversy on Friday. Sridhar was the team manager during Monkeygate controversy, involving Harbhajan Singh and Mathew Hayden, in Australia in 2008. Sridhar also attended the hearing in Southampton last Thursday evening after which match referee David Boon fined Jadeja 50 per cent of his match fee.The lawyers for the case have been hired locally.The Indian team management is convinced that with ICC agreeing to let India appeal, Jadeja’s fine will either be dropped or be reduced drastically. Some within the management feel that the Indian all-rounder will just be fined a token 10 per cent.If the fine of 50 per cent of the match fee imposed on Jadeja is reduced or dropped, it will be clear who is the guilty party, according to the team management. The Indian team anticipates that the Jadeja appeal will go in their favour, meaning Anderson will certainly be found guilty and get at least a one Test ban.The hearing is to take place in Southampton at 9am on Friday. Accordingly, the Indians have planned to split in two – the bulk of the team with the players and administrative personnel including manager Sunil Dev will proceed to Manchester by bus at 10.30-11am.Key witnesses skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Gautam Gambhir, along with the team physiotherapist, will stay back with Jadeja and Sridhar in Southampton for the hearing. They will go to Manchester by car after the proceedings.advertisementThe Indians are very confident of the verdict will go in favour of Jadeja.last_img read more

When it’s tea time for Sachin Tendulkar. Check this photo out!

first_imgSachin Tendulkar is no more worried about the unpredictable new ball and the pressure of staying on the crease and is actually enjoying his ‘Tea Time’ after retirement.Tendulkar shared with his fans on Facebook that he likes his “chai kadak” and was seen holding a kettel and a small glass that is typically used to serve tea outside home.Tendulkar retired from international cricket in 2013 after playing his historic 200th Test at the Wankhede Stadium but till date, the cricket fans in India miss him and continue to idiolise him.The batting icon, earlier in the year, released his biography and biopic, that gave fans the pleasure of knowing him closer than ever.Tendulkar bowed out after a glittering career spanning 24 years during which he became the only man to hammer 100 international hundreds and play in 200 Tests.

Ruel Reid.“Our children have different learning styles. Not all our children will achieve the same level of performance at the same time… so within our classes, we must have diversity,” he noted.“As that master teacher, you are still required to find out how you are going to try to be very prescriptive, having done the diagnosis to understand what the learning styles are, the levels of strength and weaknesses of our students in our classes, and how we are going to customise (lessons) to reach every learner,” he added.Minister Reid was speaking at a sensitisation session with primary-school teachers at the West Jamaica Conference Centre in Montego Bay, St. James, on Tuesday (September 25).He told the teachers that the Ministry will ensure that all primary schools have Internet connection in order for them to access educational resources.“Ideally, I want your schools to be ‘A’ schools. I want that, with the click of a button, you can get almost anything you want. As soon as possible, every one of our primary schools should be adequately enabled in terms of the Internet, [and] have school management systems to capture all student data, reports, and lesson plans that can be sent to your heads of departments in soft copy,” he said.The session gave teachers from western Jamaica an opportunity to be updated about recent developments in the education system, particularly the Primary Exit Profile (PEP) examinations.last_img read more

UN mission identifies thousands of displaced people in western Côte dIvoire

“Humanitarian agencies and NGOs [non-governmental organisations] are looking for financing to meet the needs of the internally displaced persons in terms of placements, shelter, water, food, health and protection,” the deputy spokesperson for the UN Operation in Côte d’Ivoire (UNOCI), Kenneth Blackman, said in a press conference held in the city of Abidjan.Mr. Blackman also reported that UNOCI peacekeepers last week distributed 16,000 litres of drinking water to people in need and carried out 817 patrols throughout the country. Medical teams from various UNOCI contingents provided free medical care to 1,376 patients, including three people who were allegedly shot by elements of the national police in the town of Bondoukou on Tuesday.He noted that UNOCI is continuing its public awareness campaigns aimed at strengthening social cohesion and peace. “Through these activities, UNOCI is showing that its credo remains finding a peaceful, inclusive and definitive crisis-resolution in Côte d’Ivoire,” Mr. Blackman said.Côte d’Ivoire has been in turmoil since early December when outgoing President Laurent Gbagbo refused leave office despite opposition leader Alassane Ouattara’s UN-certified victory in November’s run-off election.

We have to be more sensitive obviously Phil Hogans response to Election

first_imgFINE GAEL DIRECTOR of Elections Phil Hogan has acknowledged that the Government needs to be more sensitive to people’s concerns in the wake of a disastrous mid-term poll result.After a ‘shellacking’ for Labour and a poor performance from FG, it’s expected the upcoming Cabinet reshuffle will be more wide-ranging than originally anticipatedTaoiseach Enda Kenny and Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore are set to meet later to discuss the fallout from the weekend’s results.Speaking on RTÉ radio this morning, Hogan said that after three years of tough decisions ”you expect people not to be rewarding you for that”.However, acknowledging the message sent by voters, he said “we have to be more sensitive obviously, because people are hurting”.Asked whether it was still the Government’s intention to bring in €2 billion in tax hikes and spending cuts in the next Budget, the Environment Minister said:“Well I think the last thing we want and the last thing the people of Ireland want is for us to start throwing money around again after coming through all the difficulties that we’ve had.We have to keep our fiscal shape. Otherwise all the sacrifices people have made – and they have made a lot of sacrifices – will be for naught.“We do not want to go back to the bad old days,” Hogan said.On the subject of the anticipated reshuffle, he said it was a matter for the Taoiseach and the Tánaiste to decide between themselves.Read: Election 2014 Liveblog: Monday’s European and local results as they happen Read: Who is your new local councillor?

The new iPad gets torn apart

first_imgiFixit have gone above and beyond by flying to Australia and queuing up to get one of the first new iPads just to dismantle it. And as they have come to expect, Apple has continued the tradition of making the tablet very difficult to disassemble and therefore repair outside of an Apple Store.There is no doubt that the new iPad is going to sell millions of units, and while Apple benefits the most in terms of profit from those sales, there’s a few component manufacturers doing well out of the tablet, too.Samsung looks to be supplying the beautiful new Retina display, at least for this first batch of tablets. Broadcom has multiple chips inside including an 802.11 wireless chip, an I/O controller, and microprocessor. Elpidia has supplied the 1GB of RAM, and Texas Instruments has a device driver in there too. Qualcomm supply the power management, 3G/4G transceiver, and wireless modem, Toshiba has a memory chip on board as well as being the flash memory supplier, and there’s further silicon provided by Triquint, Avago, and Skyworks.If you’re wondering how quickly Apple manages to get launch day iPads manufactured, the A5X processor gives us a big hint. It has a manufacturing date of the first week of 2012, suggesting Apple was preparing component stocks for nearly 3 months at least.The big addition to the new iPad, and by big I mean large, is the new battery. The iPad 2 only carried a 25-watt hour unit, but the new iPad fits in a 42.5 watt hour replacement. It offers up similar battery life to its predecessor, demonstrating how much extra juice that high resolution screen and new processor require.Of course, if you’re queuing up for an iPad today all you really care about is booting it up and taking in that new display. It’s certainly the main (only?) reason to consider it over the iPad 2, and for an extra $100 Apple has rendered the decision that much easier to make.Read more at iFixitlast_img read more

Greek economy plain junk for SP

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Standard and Poor’s (S&P) slashed its credit rating on Greece by three notches to CCC, the lowest in the world, saying there is a significantly higher probability of a default in the struggling eurozone member.“The downgrade reflects our view that there is a significantly higher likelihood of one or more defaults, as defined by our criteria relating to full and timely payment, linked to efforts by official creditors to close an emerging financing gap in Greece,” said the rating agency last Monday. The downgrade comes as the European Central Bank (ECB) and Germany battle over how to bail out Greece and whether officials should push creditors to share some of the costs. ECB President Jean-Claude Trichet said that his advice to European governments is to “avoid what would be a compulsory concept” and “avoid whatever would trigger” a default. The outlook on the rating is negative, S&P said. The rating company held its recovery rating at ‘four,’ indicating it estimates bond holders would recover 30 per cent to 50 per cent of their investment. Source: Kathimerinilast_img read more

TCI Engineering Works update at Cheshire Hall Medical Centre

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#TurksandCaicos, November 30, 2017 – Providenciales – TCI Hospital provides a 24-hour service, and therefore, both health care facilities are maintained throughout the year with an aim to provide minimal disruption to clinical services during engineering works.   Specialist engineers continue to work expeditiously to repair any outstanding mechanical issues at Cheshire Hall Medical Centre sustained as a result of Hurricanes Irma and Maria in September.These issues are connected to water pressure, internal supply and return feeds, which support the cooling system within the facility.   As a result, a temporary reduction in cooling capacity took place over recent days to facilitate a replacement of some internal supply/return pipes on the chilled water closed loop system at the Providenciales facility.A temporary reduction in the cooling capacity is unavoidable under these special circumstances due to the nature of the repairs, and specialist engineers have worked swiftly to complete these essential repairs to support the seamless delivery of routine clinical services.Emergency Services continue to function at full capacity and the department continues to serve all levels of acuity. However, the Operating Theatre and Diagnostic Imaging Departments at Cheshire Hall Medical Centre were placed in emergency mode due to temperature sensitive equipment. Any changes to routine clinical services and scheduled appointments have been communicated to patients and staff.To date, 40 joints/elbows along with multiple stretches of pipe work have been replaced. This work has been completed promptly and efficiently whilst working around our patient base in some cases as departmental services continue. The work continued throughout the bank holiday weekend, and upon retesting the system this past Sunday, further pipe breaches were detected in areas that were previously unaffected.All repairs are projected to be completed by today, Wednesday 29th November 2017 followed by a reactivation and analysis of the system. If there are no further breaches to the chilled water closed loop pipe system, normal cooling temperatures should resume by late this afternoon.A strategic range of measures were activated to ensure safety and some level of comfort to both staff and patients during this period. These measures include, but are not limited to the following protocols:All external doors are opened at 7.30a.m. to allow for fresh air ventilation and closed at 6.00p.m. to minimise impact of dawn/dusk and mosquitoes.All public areas and departments are ventilated with the exception of any areas which would result in Infection Prevention Control or security issues such as special precaution rooms.Portable floor standing fans have been allocated to all areas with instruction for use and location for best efficiency, cooling and airflow.Communications have been consistently disseminated to all building users with regard to minimising the use of equipment on standby, and stopping use of some non-essential lights during the day to reduce internal building temperatures.Environmental Health and Safety inspections take place throughout the day starting at 6.45a.m. by the Facilities Department Duty Manager who conduct environmental scans for leaks, floor surfaces, temperature analysis, and continued management of the building for patients and staff.Since the adjustment in cooling capacity across the building, there has been no reported issues of condensation slips, trips or falls due to humidity in the building. Floor surfaces are safe and maintained for staff and patients.The Ministry of Health clinic waiting room has been relocated to the main corridor to allow persons to take full advantage of the natural air inflow.The Catering Team recently commenced routine water distribution rounds for patients, InterHealth Canada and Ministry of Health staff throughout the day in Outpatient and In-patient areas to ensure hydration. Coconut water has also been distributed to staff to ensure the replenishment of electrolytes.All front of house departments have been issued with Mosquito repellant spray for use of staff and public. There has been increased vigilance with waste management across the hospital and additional environmental checks to prevent any inflow of flies.A request has been made to TCI’s Ministry of Health for external areas around the facility perimeter to be fogged in an effort to reduce any potential mosquito population growth. This is particularly important whilst external fire doors are used for ventilation during the daytime hours. Fogging took place around 7:00pm on Tuesday 28, November 2017.The facilities team continue to provide and monitor support services particularly those in high temperature areas such as the laundry, kitchen and plant works. Staff are monitored for hydration, and rested within the building periodically throughout their shift, allowing for further hydration breaks as required.We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank our patients and staff for their understanding.

Shelter data pinpoints US destinations of asylum seekers

first_img SAN DIEGO (AP) — A detailed snapshot of the recent surge of asylum-seeking families crossing into the U.S. from Mexico gives a sense of how they were treated after entering and where they settled.Houston was the destination for 432 of 7,358 families briefly housed in a San Diego shelter from late October through June, 100 more than the second most popular spot, Los Angeles. The count reflects Houston’s emergence as a primary gateway for immigrants, including many Central Americans.The details about the migrants’ destinations were extrapolated for The Associated Press from a survey of shelter migrant registration forms compiled by Tom K. Wong, an associate political science professor at University of California, San Diego.A report on the survey was made public Wednesday that focuses on custody conditions and demographic characteristics of the asylum seekers who stayed at the shelter affiliated with the San Diego Rapid Response Network, a coalition of attorneys, advocates and civic groups.U.S. authorities arrested or stopped nearly 800,000 people from October to June, making the snapshot of more than 17,100 adults and children who passed through San Diego a partial but still significant view of a surge that overwhelmed authorities and led to migrants being held in sometimes squalid conditions.In another reflection of shifting demographics, Chicago, a longtime draw for Mexican immigrants, was the destination for only 76 families, ranking 21st with less than half the number of families headed to Nashville, Tennessee, and barely more than Fort Myers, Florida.Dumas, a town of 15,000 people in the Texas Panhandle that is half Latino and has a large meatpacking plant nearby, was the destination for 56 families, more than Denver, Phoenix or Seattle. Other small cities that drew large numbers include Huntsville and Gadsden in Alabama and Chattanooga, Tennessee.The coalition opened its shelter in late October, when U.S. authorities began releasing asylum-seeking families before they could arrange travel. Families were released with ankle monitors for heads of household and notices to report to authorities in destination cities while their cases wind through bottlenecked immigration courts.Among San Diego asylum-seeking families, 31% reported problems with U.S. custody conditions, according the study by Wong’s U.S. Immigration Policy Center. Families were held an average of 3.4 days.The most common complaints were about food and water, including insufficient infant formula, spoiled food and dirty water. Others reported issues with hygiene, including not having a toothbrush or toothpaste and lack of showers. Nearly half those who complained had issues related to sleep, overcrowding and confinement and cold temperatures.The study found that one of every five heads of households had a primary language other than Spanish but nearly 90% of them were given legal instructions in Spanish. Other common languages include the Mayan dialects of K’iche’, Q’eqchi and Mam, Vietnamese and Creole.Guatemalans accounted for 48% of families served in San Diego, Hondurans made up 30%, El Salvadorans 8% and Haitians 5%.“These findings raise serious due process concerns,” said Kate Clark, director of immigration services at Jewish Family Service of San Diego. “If asylum-seeking families are not being given vital instructions about their immigration proceedings in a language they can read or understand, how can we expect them to navigate an already complex legal process that is increasingly stacked against them?”U.S. Customs and Border Protection said that it provides the migrants three meals daily, drinks, unlimited snacks and hygiene products. Border Patrol Chief Carla Provost said last month that stations weren’t designed for long-term custody and were occupied at “unprecedented and unsustainable” levels.Customs and Border Protection, the Border Patrol’s parent agency, contracts for translation services when officers cannot determine migrants’ primary languages, said Ralph DeSio, a spokesman in San Diego.San Diego County has allowed Jewish Family Service to run the shelter in a former courthouse for free. The shelter, which relies on state funding and private donations, houses up to 250 people, providing hot meals, showers and cots for one to three days.The shelter’s population has dropped as border arrests have fallen and the U.S. ramped up a policy to make asylum seekers wait in Mexico while their cases wind through U.S. courts. Mexicans are exempt from the policy.Luz Viviana Perez, 53, said she spent more than two years on the run through her native Mexico, trying to escape an abusive partner who trailed her, knocked her teeth out and pressured their 17-year-old daughter to become a prostitute.“We’ve been throughout Mexico, fleeing from place to place,” she said Tuesday at the shelter with the 17-year-old and her 12-year-old daughter.Perez is familiar with complaints about U.S. custody conditions but she had no complaints about her five days in a 30-person cell. The lights were always on but she said she ate four times daily and showered every other day.___ August 28, 2019 AP AP, Shelter data pinpoints US destinations of asylum seekers Categories: California News, Local San Diego News, National & International News FacebookTwitter Posted: August 28, 2019last_img read more
