  • Dozens of Moroccan Teachers Injured as Police Used Water Cannons to…

    Rabat – In an overnight protest Wednesday night, April 24, police attempted to disperse protesting teachers with water cannons and batons, leaving dozens of the contractual teachers “seriously” wounded. 65 contractual teachers sustained “serious injuries.”A member of the national commission of the National Coordination of Teachers Forced into Contracts (CNPCC), Abdessamad El Amrani, said riot police met protests with violence, that not only left 65 in “serious conditions” but also sent some to intensive care. El Amrani added that most of teachers’ injuries were on their hands, backs, and legs due to the strong force of the water cannons and the batons.Read also: Contractual Teachers Start 6-Day Sit-In Monday in MoroccoThe incident came amid contractual teachers’ call for three days of marches in response to the Ministry of Education, which declared it would “suspend dialogue with teachers’ representatives” until striking teachers return to work. The protesting teachers have accused the education ministry of failing to abide by the agreements negotiated in an April 13 meeting. Contractual teachers said they would extend their strike until April 25 or more. The education ministry and teacher’s representatives have held several negotiation meetings since February 20 when the street marches began, but they have not yet come to a mutual understanding.Read also: Morocco’s Contractual Teachers: Each Protest Gets Bigger As More Join UsThe teachers have threatened a “blank year” of not returning to work for 12 months in protest of the ministry.Contractual teachers argue the education ministry does not put them on an equal footing with permanent teachers. They have been agitating for the abolishment of the fixed-term contract, some terms of which do not grant them the same level of job security as public sector teachers and to be hired into the public sector. Although the ministry promised it would abandon its contract scheme and later decided to amend some terms in the contract, all its attempts to find a middle ground with teachers have failed.Teachers consider the education ministry’s offers “patchy” and blame it for the consequences. read more

  • Enemy of the people? CNN’s Acosta defends press, and himself

    NEW YORK — Wherever CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta goes, he’s followed by the g-word. That’s grandstand. He even heard it jokingly when he met Ted Olson, who was part of the legal team that beat back President Donald Trump’s attempt last year to pull Acosta’s reporting pass.It’s usually no laughing matter. While Trump’s detractors love Acosta’s willingness to talk back to the president, supporters seethe.The criticism rankles Acosta, but he’s not backing down. He’s written a book that steals Trump’s derisive phrase for journalists he doesn’t like — “The Enemy of the People” — and tries to throw it back at him.Acosta said White House reporters never expected to spend so much of their time fact-checking a presidential election, but he thinks they’ve done it well.The Associated Press read more

  • Haitian farmers need more support says UN agency

    “Most of the response has been focusing on the urban aspect of the crisis, but the international community must not neglect rural areas if they want to overcome the massive effects of the earthquake in the country,” said Etienne Peterschmitt, Senior Emergency and Rehabilitation Coordinator for the UN Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO).More than 200,000 people were killed in the magnitude-7.0 quake which struck Haiti on 12 January, with 1.3 million more people left homeless and key infrastructure destroyed in the capital, Port-au-Prince, and other areas.Mr. Peterschmitt called for greater investment in agriculture and job creation in rural areas to “stem the flow of displaced people back into Port-au-Prince and to support food security” throughout the impoverished country.FAO and the Ministry of Agriculture distributed agricultural supplies to 72,000 farming families in earthquake-hit and rural areas ahead of the critical spring planting season, which accounts for nearly two-thirds of Haiti’s agricultural production.This assistance has helped more than 360,000 people both produce and consume their own food, while selling the surplus for health and education expenses.Along with its partners, FAO aims to reach an additional 80,000 rural families during the summer planting season with tools, fertilizer, water pumps and high-quality seeds to boost local food production.An additional 10,000 households will receive assistance in vegetable gathering as part of FAO’s urban agriculture initiative in areas around Port-au-Prince, Ganthier and Cabaret.In a related development, Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs John Holmes, who visited Haiti earlier this week, said that he saw “confirmed that alongside the authorities, we have really accomplished a huge amount – much more than we sometimes get credit or give ourselves credit for.”Despite the circumstances being “as difficult and complex a starting situation as any humanitarian organization can recall,” he said that schools have reopened, cash-for-work programmes have helped hundreds of thousands of people, and protection has been provided to the most vulnerable.“Overall we got a lot more right than wrong,” Mr. Holmes said at the New York launch of a report on Haiti by the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC), the forum for coordination, policy development and decision-making of key UN and non-UN humanitarian partners.“Yet as always in operations of this kind, and given the scale of what was and is needed in Haiti, I could also see the magnitude of the task that remains, even on the humanitarian side, let alone the gargantuan task of reconstruction,” he added.The report, unveiled in Haiti on Monday, stressed that the humanitarian needs of people affected by the earthquake remain immense, and pointed to shelter as one of the main challenges needing to be addressed.The most important lesson learned, it said, was the need to better understand and work more effectively with the various actors from outside the humanitarian context, including the military and the private sector.“The global humanitarian architecture must be critically reviewed to ensure that it is not implemented in such a way as to preclude such partnerships which are critical to the most effective response,” the publication noted. 15 July 2010Although swift food aid and agricultural supplies helped to ward off a post-earthquake food crisis in Haiti, funding shortfalls for farmers is hampering efforts to boost food production six months after the disaster, a United Nations agency cautioned today. read more

  • Recent retail IPOs has Indochino considering going public CEO says

    Recent retail IPOs has Indochino considering going public, CEO says Drew Green, the CEO of Indochino, a custom suit retailer at his store in Vancouver, B.C. on Tuesday, April 18, 2017. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Jimmy Jeong TORONTO – Indochino is mulling over the idea of an initial public offering following the recent splash Canadian retailers Aritzia and Canada Goose made in their trading debuts, says the CEO of the Vancouver-based suit maker.Drew Green, who took the helm two years ago, says the company has been “actively researching” the prospects of taking Indochino public though such a move may still be years away.“I think that opportunity will present itself for us,” Green said in an interview this week.“Right now, certainly this year, we’re entirely focused on continuing to operate and improve the business without putting a deadline on when we need to do that by.”Last month, Toronto coat maker Canada Goose (TSX:GOOS) made its market debut in Toronto and New York with a public offering valued at $340 million. Vancouver women’s fashion house Aritzia (TSX:ATZ) raised $400 million in an IPO last October.Both companies went public in pursuit of big expansion plans. Their shares soared in their initial trading days, though they have since levelled off.Indochino has set a lofty target of operating 150 stores across Canada and the U.S. by 2020, which would see its footprint grow more than tenfold in less than three years. It’s an ambitious goal for a company that started out as an online-only retailer 10 years ago.Since then, it has opened a dozen bricks-and-mortar locations with one more set for the end of this month. Indochino plans to launch five more stores, all in the U.S., this year.“Whether it’s 2020 or 2025, this business has a potential to get to 150, 250 showrooms, but we’re always going to measure and recalibrate as we go along,” Green said.He said the privately-held company saw sales grow 54 per cent year-over-year, with more than half of those coming from its online business, and comparable same-store sales climbing 32 per cent.Last year, it received a $42 million investment by Chinese manufacturer Dayang Group, which bought a less than 25 per cent stake in the company. In exchange, Indochino also has the use of dedicated production lines at Dayang’s facilities in Dalian, China.Green said Indochino’s goal is to bring made-to-measure dress shirts and suits to the masses, which means it needs to continue to expand its physical presence if it wants to reach customers outside of its mainly millennial base.Part of that strategy is to open many of its stores in top-tier shopping malls, where it can ensure it can build its brand presence and appeal to an older customer who may not be comfortable spending more than $400 online on a custom-made suit, he added.Retail marketing expert Brynn Winegard expressed doubts over whether Indochino will be able to pull off its “aggressive” expansion plans.“They’re projecting about 140 more stores in three years. That’s insurmountable,” said Winegard, of Winegard and Company.“They’re basing that on anywhere they’ve opened up a showroom, they’ve seen an increase at their online store … but that will start to dwindle when you have stores everywhere.”Green said it costs Indochino much less than a traditional retailer to open a store — a figure it pegs at under $100,000 – because none of their locations house any inventory.For now, he said the company remains focused on continuing to capture the male market, which it sees still has potential to grow. Once it does that, it would consider expanding to women’s and children’s custom wear, and opening up stores overseas, particularly in Japan, he added.Follow @LindaNguyenTO on Twitter. by Linda Nguyen, The Canadian Press Posted Apr 19, 2017 2:00 am MDT Last Updated Apr 19, 2017 at 3:20 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

  • Dont call us millennials Majority of young people say term does not represent

    first_imgThe word “millennial” has become synonymous with the young – but evidence suggests that they are starting to reject it.According to new research three quarters of under-30s say they do not feel the term represents them and more than a third say they don’t even know what it means.The study, carried out by marketing agency ZAK, argues that those aged between 18 and 30 have been misunderstood by society. The research suggests that young people have had enough of the negative connotations of the word, and experts say they may have a point.  She added that she was “not convinced” that young people were less hard-working than their parents.  “They see it as a marathon not a sprint – it’s much more about where that job can take you in the future,” she said. The term “millennial” came about because young people were unhappy at being called “Generation Y” – because it was too closely related to the previous group, Generation X, those born in the mid 1960s to early 1980s, added Professor Kelan.But now the new term is also falling out of favour. Professor Cary Cooper, of Manchester business school, said that the term “millennial” had become meaningless because it encompassed too many different groups. It is normally defined as including those born between the early 1980s and the late 1990s.  “It’s really quite a wide-ranging group of people. “What I would rather do is seeing other differences examined too – for example between men and women you find big differences,” he said. Young people were shaped by watching their parents divorce, lessening their enthusiasm for romantic commitment, and watching older family members be laid off during the financial crisis, reducing their faith in employers, he added. 18-24 year-olds probably have some things in common but the full age group is over 10 years – I don’t blame them for getting angry at being lumped together. “People make generalisations, and no-one likes being put into a category where they don’t agree with what the findings are. “It puts them into a category of being selfish and self-interested, and they’re not.  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Crack open a cold one and join us as we take a look at some of the biggest!FizzicsIt’s hard to believe that it’s been three years since the original Fizzics popped up on Indiegogo. The countertop dispenser that claimed to “deliver an awesome fresh from the tap experience from any can, bottle or growler” raised over a quarter million bucks. It’s now an Amazon favorite, ringing up sales and four-star reviews.Brewie B20S and Pico Brew Z (pictured)There have been a ton of countertop homebrewing devices introduced in the last four years. Several of them trade convenience for lockdown — you’re limited to using prepackaged ingredient kits. That isn’t the case with the Brewie B20S and the Pico Brew Z. You’re free to use whatever grains, hops, yeast and other ingredients (say, coriander and orange peel for a nice Belgian wit) you want. The machines themselves are pricey, at $1799 and $1999 respectively. For comparison’s sake, a big pot, a couple of 5-gallon pails, and the rest of the goodies you need to go manual will run you about $100.Double-Duty YeastYeast already plays a vital part in the brewing process, but there’s a team of researchers who think it’s capable of doing more. Berkley scientists have engineered yeast that can actually impart a hoppy flavor to beer. It dramatically reduces the need for actual hops and could help reduce the environmental impact of beermaking.

There’s just one problem. The historic brewery is two miles away from the local bottling plant. Many a truck has mad that run through the Belgian town over the years. To lighten the load on the town’s centuries-old cobblestone streets, the company cooked up a crazy-sounding plan: run a two-mile-long beer pipeline.

  • JAMAICA PM says country well position to capitalize on Health and Wellness

    first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Jamaica, November 6, 2017 – Montego Bay – Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, says health and wellness tourism is a growing market on which Jamaica is uniquely poised to capitalise.Addressing the official opening of the GWest Medical Centre in Fairview, Montego Bay, on November 2, Mr. Holness said the upcoming United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) conference in Montego Bay from November 27 to 29 offers the perfect opportunity for the country to showcase the world-class medical facilities and services it now has at its disposal.“The global growth in the flow of patients, health professionals and medical technology across national borders has made medical tourism a thriving sector,” Mr. Holness pointed out.“Jamaica is ideally poised for this growing market, which was valued at approximately US$20 billion in 2016. It is now estimated that it will reach approximately US$47 billion by 2021,” he added.The Prime Minister said the UNWTO conference will offer the forum where Jamaica will be able to highlight how far it has come in the area of health and wellness and its ability to now use it as a strategic marketing tool.“The conference will focus on a larger scale what GWest is in fact showcasing. It will be bringing ideas and capital together to create a valuable offering which will stimulate economic growth, job creation and profitability,” Mr. Holness said.The Prime Minister also noted that Jamaica has a competitive edge as it relates to medical tourism, pointing to “the availability of quality professionals, the island’s strategic location, increasing diagnostic facilities, and, importantly, Government’s support to facilitate growth in this market”.“Jamaica must continue to diversify and expand our tourism product in order to meet emerging market demands.   Travelers today are more discerning.   In some cases, due to ageing and complex health conditions, the availability of world-class health facilities is considered when making decisions to travel for vacation, business or to return home,” he pointed out.The Prime Minister, however, said that even with the best of intentions and all the best-laid plans in the world, unless the crime situation is brought under control, everything, going forward, will continue to be a challenge.“The business community here in Montego Bay is especially sensitive to this reality.   I want to say to the business people that we hear your concerns, and we are doing all that we can and more to ensure that we bring the situation under control very quickly,” he added.The Prime Minister noted that with the help of the business community and other stakeholders in Montego Bay, “we are serious about effecting sustainable, positive transformation”.“Earlier this week, with unwavering support in Parliament, we were able to secure the extension of the Mount Salem Zone of Special Operations for a further 60 days,” Mr. Holness said.“This will give more space to our law-enforcement teams to continue their security work and for the Social Intervention Committee to actually start the social-intervention projects that will see to a long-lasting sustained peace in those areas where the zones are implemented,” he added.The GWest Centre was established by a group of Jamaican medical and business professionals. It is housed in a modern multipurpose commercial complex and provides a wide range of high-quality medical services in the same location.Release: JISlast_img read more

  • San Diego Padres relief pitcher facing domestic assault charges in Arizona

    first_imgSan Diego Padres relief pitcher facing domestic assault charges in Arizona KUSI Newsroom KUSI Newsroom, Categories: Local San Diego News Tags: Jose Torres, MLB, San Diego Padres, sports FacebookTwitter February 13, 2018 Posted: February 13, 2018 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — San Diego Padres relief pitcher Jose Torres was supposed to report for spring training camp in Arizona this week, but instead he was placed on Major League Baseball’s restricted list as he faces domestic assault charges in Arizona, it was reported Tuesday.Torres, 24, was arrested in December and charged with assault with a deadly weapon and other crimes after he allegedly brandished a semiautomatic handgun at a woman inside a Phoenix home the pair shared, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.According to court documents cited by the newspaper, the Venezuela-born pitcher knocked a door off its hinges and punched a hole in another door during an argument in which he also pointed the gun at the victim.Torres made his first appearance in a Maricopa County court on Christmas Eve and is next due back in court on Feb. 20.MLB.com reported Monday that Torres had been placed on the restricted list — a designation for players who leave the team without reason — with the Padres saying only that the move was “non-baseball related.”The Union-Tribune reported that the team declined to comment on Torres’ criminal charges but cited club officials who thought it best that Torres not be at spring training.The left-hander pitched three innings for the Padres in 2016 before throwing more than 68 innings for the team in 62 appearances last season. He finished 2017 with a 7-4 record, a 4.21 earned run average and 63 strikeouts.He was expected to be a key part of the team’s bullpen this season after finishing 2017 with a 1.97 ERA over his last 17 appearances.News of Torres’ arrest on the domestic violence charges came a day after the public learned that former MLB pitcher Esteban Loaiza, who lives in Imperial Beach, was in a Chula Vista jail facing three felony drug charges. Loaiza, a graduate of Imperial Beach’s Mar Vista High, pitched for the Los Angeles Dodgers and several other teams, but never for the Padres. last_img read more

  • Ram Ram to mediation Ayodhya issue back to square one

    first_imgWith the three-member apex court appointed mediation panel washing of its hands on the issue of construction of Lord Ram Temple in Ayodhya by mutual consent, the decades old contentious legal issue has finally come back to the Supreme Court. Now the highest court will take up the day-today hearing of the matter and will determine the long-pending case within the shortest possible time. Also Read – Vemulawada school seized after road accident Advertise With Us In fact, referring the matter to the mediation at such a belated time itself was looked at with suspicion since due to the well-pronounced public stands of the litigant parties it was quite clear that no amicable solution would be arrived at. Thus, the whole exercise of mediation has proved to be futile. Hope, this would be the ‘final’ round of litigation. The nation has been anxiously looking forward to the final verdict on the temple issue. Also Read – Non-bailable warrant to Congress leader Renuka Chowdhury Advertise With Us Happily, the parties to the legal battle have pledged their commitment to sincerely abide by the apex court’s verdict. And indeed, if that happens, India will be able to hold its head high in the comity of nations. Court may take voice samples sans consent The Supreme Court in an important judgement delivered on July 26 has held that a magistrate can direct an accused to provide his voice samples for investigation even without his consent. Advertise With Us A larger bench of three-judges headed by the Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi while setting at rest the split verdict of 2012 by a two-judge bench in Ritesh Sinha Vs. State of UP, held that in the absence of specific powers in the Code of Criminal Procedure, the inherent powers under Article 142 of the Constitution should be invoked to confer such power on the Magistrate. However, in the absence of any specific provision in CrPC for ordering the accused to give his voice samples for investigation by the judicial magistrate, it would be better to insert a new provision into the CrPC by bringing in an amendment to the CrPC. In fact, Art.142 (1) too, speaks about this and expects Parliament to make necessary law to fall in line with the apex court’s judgement. Reliefs under Domestic Violence Act “..the mere passing of an order under Section 125 of the Code of Criminal Procedure1973 did not preclude the respondent from seeking appropriate reliefs under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act, 2005. Hence, we decline to entertain the special leave petition under Article 136 of the Constitution. “, observing this a division bench of the Supreme Court comprising Justice Dhananjaya Y Chadrachud and Justice Indira Banerjee, dismissed a special leave petition No. 6005/2019 in Shome Nikhil Danani Vs. Tanya Banon Danani. Earlier in Juveria Abdul Majid Khan Patni Vs. Atif Iqbal Masoori (2014) the apex court has held that the Monetary relief as stipulated under Section 20 of the DV Act is different from maintenance, which can be in addition to an order of maintenance under Section 125 of CrPC or any other law. CJI permits CBI to lodge fir against sitting HC judge In an unprecedented case, the Chief Justice of India has permitted the CBI to lodge an FIR against Justice S N Shukla , a sitting Judge of Allahabad High Court, Lucknow bench on the charges of corruption and malpractices. The CJI has taken this decision in view of the apex court’s verdict in K. Veeraswami Vs. Union of India & Ors, 1991 SCC (3) 655 wherein the court held that an FIR against a sitting Supreme Court or High Court judge could not be lodged without first showing the evidence to the CJI and seeking his permission. Since this Judgement, no investigating agency has probed the conduct of a sitting judge of higher judiciary and this is the first case of its kind. Earlier, a preliminary inquiry against Justice Shukla was ordered by the former CJI Deepak Misra on receiving a complaint from UP Advocate General alleging serious misconduct. With the changing times, colonial mentality of our administrators and rulers has been fast changing. Accountability and transparency are the beacon lights of good governance and judiciary cannot be an exception. True, independence of judiciary largely depends upon the statutory protection provided to the Judges and other judicial officers, but it does not mean that they should be accorded total immunity in all circumstances. The present law called, Judges Enquiry Act is a toothless law as an inquiry against a sitting Judge , hardly results into any punitive action. Therefore, it is high time to streamline this Act and also the impeachment process by the parliament to bridle the corrupt and characterless elements in the judiciary. Section 143a of NI Act applicable prospectively: SC Stating that Section 143 A of the Negotiable Instruments Act on the payment of interim compensation to the complainant during the pendency of the case has no retrospective application, the division bench comprising Justice Uday Umesh Lalit and Justice Vineet Saran set at rest the confusion about the matter after 2018 amendment to the NI Act. Now with this clarification by the apex court, it has become clear that the Section 143 A shall apply only to the cases filed after 2018 amendment and not to those filed before. The appeal in G J Raja Vs. Tejraj Surana was filed against the Madras High Court order on the issue. Lawmakers do excellent work! In a praiseworthy manner, Parliament passed several important laws during the week. Their sincerity was evident from the fact that the Parliament extended its sitting times and deliberated the Bills. Among the Bills passed are, Amendments to POCSO Act, National Medical Commission Bill and Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code Amendment Bill. Kerala HC doubts motive in PIL The Kerala High Court on July 29 dismissed a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) which sought to declare the ‘Code of Canon’ giving the Pope of Catholic Church powers over Church properties in India as ‘unconstitutional and opposed to the sovereignty of India’. The division bench of Justice Hrishikesh Roy and Justice A K Jayasankaran Nambiar did not find any reason to believe that the petitioner Anoop M S had any locus standi and observed that a religious denomination had the fundamental right under Article 26 (d) of the Constitution of India to administer properties and manage its own affairs in accordance with law. Terming the matters as ‘internal administration and policy,’ the High Court declined to consider the plea of the petitioner. On the other hand, the Court expressed its perception that the motive of the PIL was extraneous and perhaps cheap publicity. Finding the petition to be frivolous, cost of Rs.25,000 also was imposed by the court. Indeed, it is unfortunate that the High Court lost sight of the fact that in the name of internal administration of a religious site, taking shelter under Article 26 (d) of the Constitution, nobody can allow the foreign intervention. Whether, the petitioner has any locus standi or not, it does not matter much in case of the PIL because the petitioner just wants to espouse a public cause, a cause of India’s sovereignty. It is just enough the petitioner is a citizen of India. While a few PIL litigants may be publicity mongers, it would be too much to draw each and every one with the same brush . Like all cases are not baseless, so also all the PIL.last_img read more

    first_imgSunil Grover and Kapil SharmaTwitterThe King of Comedy, Kapil Sharma, recently graced Arbaaz Khan’s YouTube show – Pinch – where he not only tickled our funny bones but also made many candid revelations. It was interesting to see the man who puts everyone in a spot on his show, being under the spotlight himself.From Ali Asgar quitting his show, his infamous fight with Sunil Grover to him tweeting to the PM complaining about tax; Kapil opened up on a lot of topics in a no holds barred conversation. Talking about his fight with Sunil where he was accused of allegedly throwing a shoe at him, Kapil said, “Logo ne kaha ki joota mara tha, kisi ne kaha team ne mere aane se pehle khana kha liya tha aur mai uske kaaran gusa ho gaya. Aapko meri shakal dekh ke lagta hai kya? Ye sab cheezein mangarhant hain. Na to Sunil ne kabhi kaha ki maine ye bola na hi maine bola. Koi third person ki baat sun kar chautha panchwa aadmi react kar raha hai. Matlab mere baare me likh rahe ho ek baar mujhse to baat kar lo.”On the show, Kapil Sharma also spilled the beans on his tweet to PM Modi. He said, “Koi subah uthkar 5 baje PM ko tweet karta hai to seedhi se baat hai, ya to wo bahut dukhi hai ya to usne sharab pee rakhi hai.”In 2016, Kapil Sharma had tweeted to Modi, “I am paying 15 cr income tax from last 5 year n still i have to pay 5 lacs bribe to BMC office for making my office.” His next tweet was also directed at the PM, he wrote: “Yeh hain aapke achhe din ? @narendramodi.”The show which airs on YouTube focuses on celebs, their social media interactions, trolls and trolling.last_img read more

  • EC functioning under full control of govt

    first_imgBNP senior leader Moudud Ahmed. Prothom Alo File PhotoBNP senior leader Moudud Ahmed on Saturday claimed that the election commission is working under the full control of the present government, reports UNB.The BNP standing committee member came up with the allegation while addressing a press briefing at Noakhali Ainjibi Samity auditorium on Saturday.The briefing was arranged to protest the attack on BNP rallies, arrest of the party’s leaders and activists, obstructing the party’s campaign, biasness of the administration as well as threatening BNP leaders and activists and others.Moudud said, “We expect the civil administrations including police will work under the election commission and the commission will play a neutral rule by performing their duties appropriately.””But the scenario is fully opposite. No independent act of the commission is seen anywhere. Practically we are noticing that the election commission, law enforcement agencies and civil administration are acting according to the government’s instructions,” he said.”We expected that a peaceful and fair environment would be prevailing everywhere after the announcement of the election schedule and that’s why we decided to participate in the election,” said the former law minister.But, it’s a matter of real misfortune that incidents like attack and arrest of BNP leaders have increased, he added.Moudud alleged that his own human rights have been violated. “Besides the voting rights of the people of his constituency are also being violated.”last_img read more

  • Metro Works To Educate Drivers On How Not To Get Hit By

    first_img– / 7 To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: When we went downtown to ask folks if they’d ever seen a crash on Metro’s light rail tracks, it didn’t take too long to find someone. Christopher Hisle has lived downtown for about five years now. We met him walking his dog on Main Street, about a block from the Downtown Transit Center.“People are always running red lights around here. So I’ve seen multiple accidents but that’s the worst one I saw, with the train,” said Hisle.That crash Hisle mentioned was at Main and Pease and it happened when a car ran a red light. Hisle said the crash was so loud he heard it from his apartment on the 18th floor.“And it actually pushed the car onto the median between the tracks,” added Hisle. “I think the train was damaged too because it was stuck there for a while.”But despite that scary crash, there are spots along the rail line that are even more problematic. To see for ourselves, we met Metro Executive Vice-President Tim Kelly at the Dryden station in the Texas Medical Center. That’s the busy intersection just across from Methodist Hospital.Along with audible announcements, Metro has added more signs and lights at Dryden to let drivers know a train could come at any moment. The intersection also has lane markings to delineate car and rail movements. That’s along with the bright colors Metro has added to its rail cars to increase visibility.“But everything we’ve done this is still our number one accident location with trains,” explained KellySo what’s the big problem? Kelly says it’s vehicles turning in front of the train. In Fiscal Year 2017 Metro reported 11 crashes at Dryden Street that were blamed on improper turns. System-wide, Kelly says over half of the collisions on the rail can be blamed on red light runners and illegal turns.While the Dryden intersection does have designated left turn lanes, Kelly points out they’re shared lanes, where drivers have to merge onto the train tracks.“And that is not in itself problematic,” added Kelly. “Our problem here is people turning out of the middle lanes in front of the trains and not out appropriately out of the shared lanes. So we’ve done a lot to try to educate motorists.”But despite Metro’s efforts, there’s another safety issue to consider and that’s distracted driving. We also spoke with Robert Benz, a research engineer with the Texas A&M Transportation Institute. He says along with having to watch out for trains and pedestrians, drivers in the Med Center often have a lot of other things on their mind.“You’ve got a lot of first time users,” said Benz. “They’re usually stressed. You’re either going to a doctor’s appointment or visiting someone who’s in the hospital. So you’re stressed about that.”And Benz says what makes the situation worse is when people are more preoccupied with what’s on their phone instead of the lights and warnings.“Everybody thinks they can multitask,” said Benz. “Driving, going on their phone, navigating, answering a phone call, trying to text somebody. In those kind of environments if people could just put the phone down it would be one of the best things we could do to improve safety.”Back on Main Street that sentiment is echoed by Christopher Hisle, the guy who heard that train collision from up on the 18th floor. He says if you try to beat the train there’s a good chance you’re going to lose.“So if you have the green light it’ll stop for you,” said Hisle. “But if you try to turn in front of it when you don’t have the green light it’s not going to appreciate it.”Metro now has officers posted along the rail line to watch out for traffic violations. They’ve been issuing warnings to educate drivers. But Metro says they’ll soon start giving out tickets. Listen center_img X 00:00 /04:00 Sharelast_img read more

  • Metal Gear Solid Movie Finds its Screenwriter

    first_imgStay on target It appears the Metal Gear Solid movie is finally gaining some traction. Variety reports that Jurassic World screenwriter Derek Connolly has been tapped to pen the video game adaptation. Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts is set to direct the film, with Avi Arad acting as producer. Derek Connolly and Jordan Vogt-Roberts previously worked together on Kong: Skull Island.For those who (somehow) don’t know, Metal Gear Solid tells the story of a special-ops soldier code-named “Solid Snake.” In the seminal 1998 video game, Snake infiltrates an American military base in Alaska that has been taken over by terrorists who plan to launch a nuke. Along the way, Snake faces off against an assortment of weird and wild antagonists. He eventually has to fight the series’ titular Metal Gear, which is a giant bipedal mech.Vogt-Roberts has been attached to the Metal Gear Solid movie since 2014. The director has an appreciation for the project and understands how unique it is.“Everyone understands that it would be such an easy thing to do wrong,” said Vogt-Roberts in an interview with Slash-Film. “It would be so easy to sort of say, Metal Gear Solid is Mission: Impossible. It’s not. Metal Gear Solid is G.I. Joe. It’s not. Metal Gear Solid is X. It’s not. Metal Gear Solid is Metal Gear Solid. There’s nothing like Metal Gear Solid on the planet tonally, visually, regarding characters. Like the characters are walking philosophies.”He continued by saying: “There is nothing like the voice of that game and it’s so idiosyncratic to Kojima. And to his team. And unlike comic books that have had writers, hundreds of writers over the course of decades, you’ve essentially had one person guiding one massive, massive story. And so it’s so specific to his point of view. And my job right now when working on the script with the studio is to capture that. Because there would be no greater offense to me on the planet than making a bad Metal Gear movie. That would be a like a Scarlet Letter of epic proportions that I would not be able to live with myself with.”The Metal Gear Solid film currently has no planned release date. However, now that it has a director and screenwriter, we might hear more information soon. I’m personally wary of a Metal Gear Solid movie, but it is possible this could turn out at least okay. Stay tuned for more news as it develops.

  • Kolkata Police uses legendary scene from Saptapadi to create awareness on safe

    first_imgKolkata: The scene featuring the immortal romantic pair of Bengali Cinema Uttam Kumar and Suchitra Sen, riding on a motorcycle and singing ei path jodi na sesh hoy in the film Saptapadi, is still as popular as it was five decades ago.The Kolkata Police didn’t make any delay in making use of the evergreen scene, in which Uttam Kumar is riding a motorcycle with Suchitra Sen as pillion rider, to reach people of all ages with the message of “Safe Drive Save Life”. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsThe Kolkata Police has tweeted a still photograph of a particular moment from the scene, in which both the matinee idols are singing the song while riding the motorcycle and a parody of the song has been incorporated to create awareness on the importance of using helmets while riding a motorcycle, even as a pillion.In this particular scene of the Bengali romantic drama that was released in 1961, Uttam Kumar and Suchitra Sen were featured singing a duet. The song was sung by Hemanta Mukhopadhyay and Sandhya Mukherjee. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedNow, in a bid to encourage people to use helmet, it has been shown in the photograph that Uttam Kumar is saying ei path jodi na sesh hoy (if the road doesn’t end), in reply to which Suchitra Sen is seen saying duto helmet holey besh hoy (it would be good if there are two helmets).Before playing the role of a motorcycle rider in the film, Uttam Kumar had taken lessons in motorcycle riding from a famous motorcycle collector in South Kolkata. However, on the day when the scene was shot, the director decided that he would act with Suchitra Sen on a fixed motorcycle. He had learnt the art of motorcycle riding so perfectly, that the viewers had got the feeling that the two-wheeler was moving, even though the scene was shot on a fixed motorcycle. The motorcycle that Uttam Kumar was seen riding in the film was a BSA Golden Flash. Today too, many high-end bikes are often found plying on city roads. So, the police have taken up the idea of creating awareness using the photograph of the matinee idols.The tweet has been liked by many and the same has been retweeted by 78 users of the social networking site.last_img read more

  • Advanced Renamer is a free batch renaming utility for Windows

    first_imgAdvanced Renamer is a free batch renaming utility for Windows by Ashwin on August 12, 2019 in Software – 20 commentsRenaming a lot of files is a chore, even more so when the names are very different from each other. Windows Explorer / File Explorer features some basic mass-renaming options, but these don’t cut it very often as the functionality is as basic as it gets.But when you have to rename files using a similar name pattern it’s always a good idea to use a renaming software such as Advanced Renamer to save some time.It is one of the most advanced programs out there to rename files and has a very good interface that makes it easy to use. Speaking of which the GUI consists of 3 panes, a naming method pane, a file selection pane and an information pane.Advanced Renamer is available as a portable version and installer for Windows. It is free to use for personal use; commercial users need to buy a license to use it in business environments. The program supports the renaming of files and folders.Adding the FilesTo add the files or folders which you want to rename, select them using the “Add” menu or drag and drop them to the right pane in the program’s interface. Each file you add is listed with its name, path and other information. The new filename is displayed there as well so that you know right away how filenames will look like with the selected renaming settings.The toolbar that is displayed at the top of the file pane lists tools to change the order of files, customize columns, or enable or hide thumbnails.Detailed information is displayed for the selected file in the file information pane including a file’s name, creation, modification, and accessed date, and, for some file types, a preview image, GPS data, or dimensions. There is an EXIF Tool button to open the included tool to view, edit, or remove EXIF data from files.Configuring the renaming optionsLet’s move to the left pane. This is where you will configure the renaming options; just select the “add method” button to pick one of the available options such as new name, add, replace, or renumber from the list of available presets.For basic renaming you can use the New Name method. Type something in the text box and you will see that the “new filename” column is updated accordingly.One example: let’s say we want to organize a photo album. Camera apps use odd naming patterns that reveal nothing about the location, people, or event captured by these images.To change the name of photos such as P6200951.JPG to 2018 Vacation – Summer.jpg, you’d simply type the new name into the “new name” field after selecting the method from the list of presets. The preview is updated automatically to reflect the change.If you have added more than one photo to the program you will notice that there is an issue: you have multiple files and each of them has the same new filename which will produce conflicts. To correct this, you can add a tag to the naming method, such as the increasing number tag represented by ; this adds a unique identifier to each filename.You can add spaces and hyphens in the name, like I have done in the screenshot, to keep the filename clean, or remove any space to avoid conflicts with certain programs or services.Once you do this you will see that the photos in our example are named 2018 Vacation – Summer 01, 2018 Vacation – Summer 02, and so on.One strong feature of Advanced Renamer is that you can select multiple methods for rename jobs and use all kinds of tags including ID3/MP3 Tags, Image Tags, Date/Time Tags, GPS, Videos, TV Shows, and more. The TV Shows feature pulls information from a third-party website to add these to filenames automatically.Advanced users can use regular expressions to find and replace characters.The renaming of photo collections is just one example where renaming software can be of use. Other examples include bringing music and video libraries in order, renaming downloaded files so that they feature the month or year in the filename, or using media tags to add information to media filenames.The preview of the new filename is one of the most helpful options of Advanced Renamer as it reflects any change you make right away. It is easy enough to correct any mistakes you make to get the job done correctly.Note: if you select rename as the batch mode, source files will be renamed. You may also select move or copy to prevent that the source files are renamed.Batch RenamingA click on the “start batch” button starts the renaming process. The program displays a confirmation prompt that lists the number of methods, files, and the batch mode. A click on start runs the operation.Advanced Renamer displays a log of the process once you have hit the start button. It displays processes files, number of errors it encountered during operation and an option to open the error log to take a closer look at the errors.The program renames files quickly: the entire process for 97 files took less than 30 seconds during one of the tests that I ran.In case of issues with the renaming process, you can do one of 2 things. Use a different naming method, or the easier option which is “Undo last batch”.  The latter displays a list of tasks that were completed, and lets you select the one which you can undo.We have previously written about Bulk Rename Utility and ReNamer. Which renaming software do you use?Closing WordsAdvanced Renamer is a powerful software program for Windows to rename files. Simple rename jobs take less than a minute to configure and start thanks to the program’s use of preset methods and default tags to choose from.Plenty of advanced options are available, from using file metatags to combining multiple methods or using regular expressions to rename files using simple or complex patterns.Now You: Which rename software, if any, do you use?Summary12345 Author Rating5 based on 1 votes Software Name Advanced RenamerOperating System WindowsSoftware Category UtilitiesPrice FreeLanding Page https://www.advancedrenamer.com/ Advertisementlast_img read more
