Protests stall Council proceedings as well

first_imgThe Legislative Council witnessed noisy scenes on Wednesday over the government’s decision to bring anganwadi workers under the Maharashtra Essential Services Maintenance Act (MESMA). Proceedings were suspended at least four times before the Council chairman was forced to adjourn the House for the entire day. The Shiv Sena took an aggressive stand, with Sena MLC Anil Parab criticising the decision. He was supported by Leader of Opposition Dhananjay Munde. Mr. Parab said, “If the government can’t even pay anganwadi workers a decent remuneration, how can it impose MESMA on them?” Opposition members jumped into the well and shouted slogans. The proceedings were suspended first for ten minutes, and then another 20 minutes in the afternoon session. “The State has no right to impose MESMA on workers who feed lactating women and malnourished children,” said independent MLC Kapil Patil.last_img read more

Dipa returns to rousing welcome in Tripura

first_imgAgartala, Aug 22 (PTI) Dipa Karmakar, who finished a historic fourth in gymnastics at the just concluded Rio Olympics, was today given a rousing welcome on her return home. Thousands of people gathered at the Swami Vivekananda stadium waving the tricolour and burst crackers to cheer Dipa, the first Indian woman gymnast to compete in Olympics and the first to do so in 52 years. Dipa apologised to the people for her failure to bring home an Olympic medal but promised to do so the next time. “Before going to Rio Olympic I was asked by Sports Authority of India (SAI) if I needed foreign training under a foreign coach. I had said Indian coaches have a lot of energy to train their students. I am very happy with the coaching of Bisweswar Nandi,” she said. “Shakshi and Sindhu, the two who secured medals in Rio also have Indian coaches,” she said. Expressing happiness over the performance of women atheletes from the country in the Olympics, she said, “I appeal to all ? save the girl child and encourage the girl child.” Citations were given to Dipa by Tripura government and to Nandi by Chief Minister Manik Sarkar and sports minister Shahid Chowdhury. Sarkar announced that Dipa, who is now a sports officer in the department of Sports and Youth affairs would be promoted as assistant director of the department and her coach, who is an assistant director, would be promoted as deputy director. The chief minister also announced that the government has taken the initiative to make a world class gymnasium where Dipa would get all facilities so that she could equip herself for the coming competitions. “We cannot deny that infrastructure for gymnastics in Tripura is poor. Had there been better infrastructure, it is presumed that Dipa could perform better in Olympics,” Sarkar said adding the the state government has appealed to the Centre for more funds to create infrastructure for sports. “Even if the Centre does not allocate funds, we would make a world class gymnasium for Dipa and other gymnasts to practice,” he said. Tripura Education Minister Tapan Chakraborty announced that all schools and colleges of the state would remain closed tomorrow in honor of Dipa. MORE PTI JOY KK AH CMadvertisementlast_img read more

Perth Test: Green pitch set to test India’s skills and Australia’s resolve

first_imgThe venue of classic Test matches, happy hunting ground for pacers and harbinger of nightmares for touring batsmen. Perth brings back many memories – pleasant and scary – for cricket aficionados from different eras from different parts of the world.Perth is where India and Australia will line up Friday morning to play the second Test after Virat Kohli’s pacers outbowled Australia’s to set up a 31-run win at the Adelaide Oval earlier this week. Action will move from the iconic WACA to the spanking new Perth Stadium but the nature of the pitch has understandably dominated headlines on the eve of the Test.The pitch curator unveiled a green top and promised plenty of pace and bounce. Two days out from the match, Tim Paine and a few former Australian cricketers warned India: be ready for a barrage of pace. They had perhaps forgotten that Indian teams in recent years have cherished the prospect of playing on fast and bouncy pitches – remember Durban 2010, Lord’s 2014 and Johannesburg 2018.Virat Kohli saw the pitch and immediately said he was ready for the challenge. Bring it on and don’t shave off anymore grass. India’s pacers have been sensational in 2018 – their resilience and grit have resulted in three memorable wins in Johannesburg, Nottingham and Adelaide.But India have yet to win an overseas Test series this year. Those one-off wins did nothing to improve India’s reputation as poor travellers. Barring Virat Kohli and to an extent Cheteshwar Pujara, the others have disappointed.advertisementThat cannot be the case anymore. After the collapse on the first morning in Adelaide, Pujara came to the rescue with one of his most memorable hundreds before the bowlers stepped up to keep India slightly ahead. It was a far more improved batting show in the second innings but on a green pitch in Perth, India will need to dig deep into their skill sets.Kohli, Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane are classy batsmen with 14821 runs between them in Test cricket. Most importantly, all three have played gutsy knocks on green pitches and the trio was instrumental in India’s dogged batting display on a dodgy pitch in Johannesburg.There is no doubt this Indian batting line-up is highly skilled but sometimes the batsmen have been guilty of letting their emotions get the better of them. They all want to play their part in overseas Test victories and perhaps the pressure has been telling.That cannot happen in Perth against the likes of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins. These men will be eager to put behind them the disappointment of Adelaide on a green pitch that should be their ally in Perth.However, Australia will need more than the fire their very capable pacers can breathe – they need resolve. In the absence of Steve Smith and David Warner, the likes of Usman Khawaja and Shaun Marsh have to lead from the front. Much was expected of Khawaja in the first Test but he failed; Marsh looked promising in the second innings but that was not nearly not enough.Travis Head looks solid and that should Australia in good stead in conditions they would like to believe favour them more.Marcus Harris looked good on debut but he would be disappointed with his dismissals after scoring 26 in each innings. His opening partner Aaron Finch, meanwhile, needs to figure out how to remain at the crease longer before he thinks of destroying bowlers.Tim Paine may not be a prolific run-scorer but he has proven to be a courageous captain – his knock in a determined draw against Pakistan should inspire his men to fight harder on their own turf against the world’s No.1 Test team.The next five days should produce some riveting cricket. One team has the chance to take a step closer to history while the other would want to show their home crowd some spunk. Test cricket might just get to see one of its finest matches of the year in Perth starting Friday.Also Read | Mohinder Amarnath says advantage India in tight Test series vs AustraliaAlso Read | Have to be switched on from ball one against India’s bowlers: Marcus HarrisAlso Read | India will be undisputed No.1 in the world if they beat Australia: Mark ButcherAlso Read | India have a sniff of something special and we have to be careful, says Tim Painelast_img read more

New website showcases joint activities of UN labour and agriculture agencies

6 June 2008Two United Nations agencies dealing with labour and agriculture today launched a new website designed to highlight the many areas in which they work together, including youth employment, safety and health and crisis management. The website: “Food, Agriculture and Decent Work” (www.fao-ilo.org) describes the cooperation and activities of the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in 10 major fields and provides links to related information sources. The site showcases work related to decent employment, child labour, youth employment, cooperatives, small and medium enterprises, rural workers, safety and health, crisis management, crops, fisheries and forestry, and labour statistics. The ILO seeks to promote opportunities for women and men to obtain decent and productive work in conditions of freedom, equity, security and human dignity. The goal of FAO is to help reduce hunger and rural poverty through the sustainable development of agriculture, rural areas and their natural resources.“Both organizations share a commitment to support people-centred, sustainable development and fair and inclusive globalization,” according to a news release issued by ILO. “A coordinated strategy is a critical option in order to complement and enhance the work currently being carried out by each organisation, respectively, on labour and agriculture and rural development and promote rural work,” the agency added. read more

Governance tops UNbacked talks between Cypriot leaders

Speaking to the press after the meeting in Nicosia, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s Special Representative Tayé-Brook Zerihoun said Greek Cypriot leader Dimitris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat also discussed other aspects related to governance.“The atmosphere was good. They will continue their discussions tomorrow and hopefully move ahead on these issues,” said Mr. Zerihoun, who also heads the UN peacekeeping force, known as UNFICYP, which has been deployed since 1964 to prevent inter-communal fighting on the island.He added that tomorrow the “much awaited” planting of olive trees will take place, as well as an event featuring civil society representatives from both communities who will be expressing their solidarity and support for the talks. In May last year, Mr. Christofias and Mr. Talat committed themselves to working towards “a bicommunal, bizonal federation with political equality, as defined by relevant Security Council resolutions.”The partnership would comprise a Federal Government with a single international personality, along with a Turkish Cypriot Constituent State and a Greek Cypriot Constituent State, which would be of equal status. 14 October 2009Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot leaders met today to continue discussions on governance, focusing on the executive, as part of ongoing United Nations-backed talks to unify the Mediterranean island, the world body said today. read more

Urban Meyer focuses on optimism moving forward in opening sessions at Big

Caitlin Essig – Managing editor for contentCHICAGO — “Ohio State” and “Urban Meyer” were names rolling off just about everyone’s tongues in the opening sessions at Big Ten Media Days Wednesday.Buckeyes coach Meyer wasn’t the only one swimming in questions about OSU players recently involved in legal issues. Coaches from Michigan, Purdue, Wisconsin and others fielded questions as well.Meyer looking ahead with optimismDespite the football program being shone in a negative light lately due to legal trouble involving some of Meyer’s players, including running back Carlos Hyde and cornerback Bradley Roby, Meyer had a message of optimism for the team’s potential.“It’s been a great year,” Meyer said in his opening statement Wednesday. “Tough couple of days. But I’m going to focus on the positives, positives created by tremendous momentum from last year’s team to an excellent recruiting class, positive spring practice and one of the best academic performances in recent history at Ohio State.”He said while speculation surrounds the legal trouble of this players, he tries not to get involved in what people are saying.“I think people need to get facts before they start just making accusations and those type of things,” Meyer said. “I’m human and I think that is something that I’m constantly evaluating and making sure we are doing the right thing.”Meyer said he’s looking to move on, as the negative attention tends to overshadow positive things happening in his current and previous programs.“I’ve had incredible coaches, incredible players,” Meyer said. “And I think the focus a lot of times when it gets taken away from those great players who are great people and great coaches on my staff, it just bothers you a little bit. But you have to move on, and we certainly have.”Meyer has dealt with several players facing unrelated legal issues this summer.Hyde was named a “person of interest” in the reported assault of a woman at a Columbus bar Saturday, according to a Columbus Division of Police report. Hyde has since been suspended from all football team activities pending the outcome of the student code of conduct and criminal investigations.Roby was scheduled to attend Media Days, but senior safety Christian Bryant was tacked on as a replacement after it came to light that Roby was arrested Sunday in Bloomington, Ind., and charged with misdemeanor battery.Bryant said he wasn’t surprised to be called on to replace Roby at the conference.“I actually knew I was probably (going to) be here maybe like a week and a half now,” Bryant said. “Last Monday I knew I was coming.”“I initially thought all four of us (were coming),” he said, but since each team brings three players, he added, “So I guess in place of Roby last Monday.”Meyer said Roby’s lack of attendance was originally related to academics.Meyer said his goal moving forward is to work on just doing everything he can to push his players in the right direction.“Our coaching staff is on a mission through things like job fairs and Real Life Wednesdays and these other workshops, leadership workshops to make sure that with all the powerful and resource — all the powerful people and resources at universities, that these kids should be getting as much education, as much direction as possible,” Meyer said.“Real Life Wednesdays” were instituted by Meyer to help his players adjust to life after football. In spring semester, speakers were brought in to talk to the team each week about a variety of issues that players will have to deal with in their lives after college football.Players ready to lead, dominateMeyer wasn’t the only one focusing on staying optimistic for the 2013 season.Senior offensive lineman Jack Mewhort said he’s looking forward to being a leader on the team and is working to look past negative attention the Buckeyes have been receiving.“It’s hard to let this stuff slow you down when there’s so much positive stuff going on,” Mewhort said.He added that being detail-oriented will be crucial for the team.“Obviously we can’t let complacency set in, we do a good job of reminding everybody that it’s no longer 2012, it’s a completely different team,” Mewhort said. “I think that’ll be our biggest struggle is just taking everything game by game and not looking down the road because that, when you get ahead of yourselves that’s when details slip.”Quarterback Braxton Miller, who is entering his junior year, said his personal goals include being a strong leader on the team. He added that remaining focused, “working hard and striving for the best” is key.Meyer stressed the importance of leadership from players like Mewhort and Miller in his opening remarks.“This year’s team has high expectations, riding off the coattails of what those kids did last year, and it’s very simple that if we get tremendous leadership from our coaching staff, but most importantly our players, then we’ll have a success,” he said.Miller added that the team has a different approach to the season.“It’s a different mentality,” he said. “I feel like everybody knows what they’re doing (to win).”Mewhort said the team’s goals have changed for the upcoming season.“Last year we had important goals but you know it’s the same thing but our focus kind of shifts a little bit to playing after the regular season. I think the guys are looking forward to that.” read more

Googlebranded tablet set for July launch

first_imgIt looks as though Google is, in fact, still planning on putting out a Nexus tablet this year. Initially thought to be launching in May after production was set to kick off in April, Now sources have told The Verge that it won’t go on sale until July.That lines up nicely with my suspicions that Google would take the wraps off their co-branded tablet at I/O 2012, which takes places from June 27th through the 29th.The reason for the delay? It’s not because they’re waiting on Android 5.0 Jelly Bean. Apparently Google and Asus are trying to figure out how to tweak the hardware in order to drive the price of the tablet down a bit more. It was previously thought that the first big-screen Nexus device would hit the streets at $249, though there’s been no official confirmation of that — or any — figure.The Kindle Fire is still selling like gangbusters, though, at $199. Amazon and Google are on even footing as far as brand recognition goes, so the $50 difference in price might not be enough to win customers over — even though the Google tablet reportedly packs a quad-core processor. If Google and Asus can come up with a hardware combination that allows them to reduce the price by $20 to $50, things could get very interesting in the tablet world.And don’t forget about those rumors of an iPad mini that continue to surface. There’s now talk that Apple is playing with a 7.85-inch prototype in Cupertino. Depending on what price point they’ve got in mind for the mini tablet, getting the Nexus tablet on sale for a price below $249 could be even more critical to its success.More at The Vergelast_img read more

Trump issues first veto after rebuke of border order

first_imgWASHINGTON — President Donald Trump issued the first veto of his presidency on Friday, overruling Congress to protect the emergency declaration he’d used to circumvent lawmakers to build his border wall.Flanked by law enforcement officials as well as the parents of children killed by people in the country illegally, Trump maintained that he is not through fighting for his signature campaign promise, which stands largely unfulfilled 18 months before voters decide whether to grant him another term.“Congress has the freedom to pass this resolution,” Trump said, “and I have the duty to veto it.”A dozen defecting Republicans joined Senate Democrats in approving the joint resolution on Thursday, which capped a week of confrontation with the White House as both parties in Congress strained to exert their power in new ways. It is unlikely that Congress will have the two-thirds majority required to override Trump’s veto, though House Democrats will try nonetheless.Despite the sharp rebuke from Congress, Friday’s event had the victory lap feel of a bill-signing ceremony. Trump was surrounded in the Oval Office by supporters who offered profuse thanks and frequent applause. After many had spoken, Trump dramatically signed his veto message and then held the document up for the cameras to capture.He then distributed pens as mementos of the occasion.Trump wants to use the emergency order to divert billions of federal dollars earmarked for defense spending toward the southern border wall. It still faces several legal challenges from Democratic state attorneys general and environmental groups who argue the emergency declaration was unconstitutional.last_img read more

Always want to do everything we can on the ground to maximize mission success, next launch opportunity in about a week.— SpaceX (@SpaceX) May 17, 2019 The Starlink mission is set to deliver those first 60 internet satellites to orbit when it finally launches. Provided everything goes as planned, the launch will pave the way for a satellite megaconstellation that will eventually contain over 12,000 of the miniature internet-providing boxes of future tech.As is par for the course for SpaceX now, the company will attempt to land the Falcon 9 booster on a droneship known as “Of Course I Still Love You,” floating along in the Atlantic Ocean. Around an hour into the mission, the satellites will be deployed.If you’re the kind of person who loves a spaceship and wants to watch along, SpaceX will provide a livestream at the webcast homepage. SpaceX generally starts streaming around 15 minutes prior to launch.The first 60 satellites will be dropped off at an altitude of approximately 270 miles (440 kilometers) above the Earth, if everything runs smoothly, and then they will gently propel themselves out to an orbit of about 340 miles (550 kilometers).This will be the third time this particular Falcon 9 booster has ascended to space, according to SpaceX, with two previous flights coming in September 2018 and January 2019. SpaceX Meet the SpaceX Falcon Heavy, the world’s most powerful rocket Share your voice Musk has tried to temper expectations of this first, historic deployment of satellites, saying that “much will likely go wrong” and these first 60 satellites are a test, providing a demonstration of Starlink’s future capabilities. Another six launches will be required before even “minor” coverage is offered.You can read all about the Starlink plan for space internet domination in CNET’s handy explainer.center_img The booster supporting this mission previously flew in support of the Telstar 18 VANTAGE and Iridium-8 missions pic.twitter.com/Uz8uWx6ojw— SpaceX (@SpaceX) May 15, 2019 Falcon 9 sits ready on the launchpad for the final Iridium NEXT mission. SpaceX SpaceX CEO Elon Musk wants to bring speedy broadband to the world, providing a megaconstellation of satellites that swarm around the Earth like a flock of internet-capable pigeons looking for some bread.OK, bad analogy, but for Musk to achieve his lofty goal, SpaceX will need to successfully launch 60 satellites currently tucked neatly away inside a Falcon 9 payload bay. After high winds delayed the mission Wednesday, SpaceX has again decided to stand down to “update satellite software and triple-check everything again.” The next launch opportunity will be in “about a week.” Comments Originally published May 15, 3:06 p.m. PT.Updates, 5:45 p.m. PT: Adds SpaceX says weather conditions are favorable; 7:50 p.m.: Adds SpaceX has scrubbed Wednesday’s launch; 3:28 p.m., May 16: Adds launch details, links to webcast; 6:45 p.m.: Adds SpaceX scrubs again.
